This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "Perfect"
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."
Pros: "Everything normal as expected on an economy class nothing special."
Cons: "Firstly If the meals we pre booked were actually given to us. Secondly what’s the point of giving menus to coustomer to choose their meal when food availability is limited. Don’t set false expectations to your customer when you can’t deliver on them."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "The purser and the business class cabin attendants were amazing. Great choice of meals. Fantastic experience"
Cons: "Nothing."
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: "Great staff, great comfort. Great airline!"
Cons: "The boarding system is somewhat confusing with 5 different zonings."
Pros: "Flight was uneventful, left on time. Chocolate cake was delicious."
Cons: "I would have liked rear and forward camera live feed to show actual flight"
Cons: "Thank for everything it is excellent"
Pros: "The business class service is second to none. Very courteous staff, superb on demand menu with ausome selections."
Cons: "Cleanliness of cabin. Aminity kit is outrageous."
Pros: "In-flight crew was excellent."
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 crew, especially Martin and Imen, were fabulous!"
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."

Pros: "Jain meal was quite uninteresting Flight was too packed Cabin air stale and dry"
Pros: "I like how kind and caring the staff .. how they handle people specially on take off and landing they manage to smile and brief people who are first time on plane or not familiar with the rulea and safety precautions on flight"
Cons: "Its not that i didnt like.. but i would like to have a more .. food servings and more healthy food. But the food is good.."
Pros: "comfortable"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Nothing was wow! Liked politeness of one of the airhost. She was good with good english"
Cons: "Plane wasnt clean enough specially toilet."
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: "Flight Attendants were really helpful especially when one of my child had a nose bleed, we had at least 3 attendants, tending to our needs when that happened and they did not leave until the situation was resolved."
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK. PHONEY wheel chair users. Saw a woman with one leg who.REALLY needed one tough it out while others were just lazy. I saw them walking after wards. They just don't want to wait in.line. Handicapped should have wheelchairs but once they have them they should wait like everyone.else"
Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."
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!"
Cons: "Few selection of food."
Pros: "Office staff was cooperative Overall flight was good"
Cons: "Ground crew was rude in behavior - not all but briefing counter staff"

Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Cons: "they pot me in another flight"
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"
Cons: "The seats could me more comfortable . The one that flew from Doha to Mumbai was way more comfortable than the one from Houston to Doha ."
Pros: "Good legroom with respect to others airlines.. the plane is clean.. multiple bathroom so no long waits Dinner was tasty.. however the breakfast was not."
Cons: "Cheap headphones will not isolate sound from airplane engine for such an expensive entertainment"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
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: "Nice people"
Cons: "6-hour delays coming and going. Sounds like a an issue."
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."

Good flight quick and easy

Trip was seamless.

Could of been a A220-100

My lay over was changed so that my flight was boarding on the opposite side of the airport at the same minute I was walking through the gangway getting off my first flight. I took screen shots of the times and it was alarming to say the least.

Cons: "Flew first class but still had to pay for internet. We also waited 20 minute in the runway after landing"
Pros: "Very nice crew, quickly boarded and smooth flight!"
Pros: "The crew did a mediocre job of keeping us informed as to the delay of takeoff."
Cons: "There was some type of mechanical or electric issue that delayed our flight by 30 minutes or so, which is unwelcome for a flight that late at night."
Pros: "The space between passengers."
Cons: "Nothing it was perfect."
Pros: "The pilot kept us updated."
Pros: "The crew was polite and professional. Boarding went very smoothly and the flight left on time. Baggage was very quick when we arrived in Seattle as it was already coming out when we arrived in the baggage claim area."
Cons: "I would have like to have been offered disinfectant wipes to use on the food tray. Otherwise it was a perfect experience."
Cons: "Seats are tight"
Cons: "Needed assistance for limited mobility to make connections at ATL was not provided. Caused us to miss connections and had two falls trying to get around. Air France was terrible. Very limited food and beverage service left us hungry and thirsty on 7 to 10 hour flights."
Cons: "During this trip all my flights got delayed and I was told that I could not get a hotel room and had to pay for myself."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "boarding was difficult. no rhyme or reason."
Pros: "Lift off and landing was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Delta crews are very friendly and helpful. Seats are 'good' on the E175 plane - better than the cramped CRJ200 on some other short flights. We boarded early, left a little early and arrived early. Nothing to complain about, except maybe a crying baby behind me, but that's not Delta's fault. :)"
Pros: "Super friendly staf, big enough seat, good enough food, enough room for luggage."
Cons: "Seat was smaller than EVA and food not quite as good."
Pros: "The plane and flight was fine, as was the crew on board. The crew within the Salt Lake airport could have been better. Not sure if it was the gentlemans first time but overall he and the woman working the boarding were very slow and could have been more efficient. We boarded late (may be out of their control) but when we started boarding there was too much wasted time between calling up the military/people with longer boarding needs/wheelchairs etc. They waited until they were completely boarded and settled prior to calling the next group then spent time fiddling with the sign that splits the boarding lanes etc. Just appeared that there was no sense of efficiency. Polite people though."
Pros: "Got first class upgraded. Very nice service!"
Cons: "We left 8am from JFK. Wish the crew had mentioned the 30 minutes waiting time to take off, given the 15?planes in front of us in line to do the same. I was very much needing to use the restroom about 15 minutes into it! I was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "I didn’t have anything negative to report regarding this flight."
Pros: "No issues"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Never told why we were delayed by more than 90 minutes"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No upgrade"
Pros: "Professional, courteous, and responsive crew and attendants."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Crowded seatibg"
Pros: "Attendant was very good at explaining ground staff members actions to a fellow passenger"
Pros: "They had available seats on an earlier flight and I was able to get home super quick! My checked bag also made it which was great!"
Pros: "The snacks were decent on the flight. Everything else was a disappointment."
Cons: "Unexpected delay for take off after being told the flight was going to be on time. They couldn’t give us a reason or an eta on take off while waiting at the gate which affected my ride situation once I landed in Seattle."
Pros: "The kind bars"
Cons: "They gave a hard time checking in because I didn’t mark I had a lap child. I honestly looked and the website wasn’t clear. Then (Bob who checked me in in Tucson) didn’t bag my car seat. And it came super dirty. I’ve never had an airline not bag the caraway. Especially when I asked. Southwest is a better company to work with. Disappointed"
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Pros: "I purchased round trip tickets to Cancun Mexico for under $400. And I received 1st class upgrades both ways. I could not be happier with my travel."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "1 hour delay, no explanation, no weather problems, late for my meeting in Houston."
Cons: "I lost the flight To hartford and I pay 4 the hotel"
Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."
Cons: "The flight was quite smooth."
Pros: "Quick boarding/unboarding."
Cons: "Wouldn't allow me on earlier flight, when there was room, without change fee"
Pros: "gate staff were great"
Cons: "plane cabin staff looked overworked"
Pros: "I didn't get a chance to get the gentleman's name at the gate, but he was able to get me on the earlier flight (since I had NO luggage and only 1 carry on that fit under my seat) and didn't charge me the stupid fee for filling a seat that was empty when I was giving up a seat on a later flight that would accommodate those who missed this earlier flight. Nice to see kindness in an industry that seizes fees on every opportunity."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Pros: "The staff was was very accommodating to myself and my 19 month old daughter"
Pros: "Very friendly staff and the onboard meals were surprisingly good. Korean Air may quite possibly be my favorite airline."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Wifi was available and we got some snacks. Paid extra to sit in roomier coach, was worth it."
Cons: "Still pretty cramped, not the crews fault. Would've been better with the seat back screens"
Pros: "Sitting in the exit row (52H) gave me lots of space and the temperature was great."
Cons: "My original flt KE018 on 03Apr17 was a different story; had adequate space, but the temperature was warm making it uncomfortable to sleep during the 13 hour flight. Unfortunately, the A-380 does not have manual overhead air vents."
Cons: "Flight was 7 hours delayed and every 2 hours of waiting they delayed the flight 2 more hours"
Pros: "Very informative staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Pros: "The good the crew and the bed"
Cons: "The overheads were noisey and loud and made it difficult to sleep"
Pros: "I had ordered a dairy - free vegetarian meal for the international flight. Initially the attendant brought me a vegetarian meal with cheese, part of the regular meal options, then she found the one with my seat number that was dairy - free. It was quite tasty! And I was grateful, since I would not have been able to eat the meal with dairy. It is not a preference, dairy makes me ill. The delay departing from Brussels caused us to miss our connecting flight to Denver, but our provided hotel accommodations in NY were quite comfortable. One item of note: The LaGuardia staff person, who made our arrangements for the overnight stay, said there was a shuttle from the hotel to JFK ( where our flight was in the morning), so she did not give us a travel voucher for the morning. The Hotel only has a shuttle to LaGuardia; it never has a shuttle to JFK. It seems the staff person should have known that. When we called Delta to ask how we should handle that, Delta kindly offered us reimbursement; it was just a phone call and a mailing for us and for Delta that was extraneous. Our interaction with the staff person was entirely pleasant, we were just surprised that there was misinformation."
Pros: "The plane departed on time with no delay."
Cons: "They had two JFK-bound flights leaving from the adjacent gates at the exact same time. So your "10:30 a.m. to JFK" could have been either gate 35 or 36, and the doors were so close that the people were in one big, undifferentiated mass...rather than two separate boarding areas or lines. That may have been a problem of the Reykjavik airport rather than the airline."

Food was garbage. Entertainment choices are very limited.

The trip was very good..I loved that I received notifications all thru the trip.

My flight was canceled!!

The chairs should be maintained better for functional working!

I requested for wheelchair assistance for my mother who has health issues but it was not provided

Being profiled for 'random' security checks because of your last name is racist.

When I arrived at the airport I checked my bags in and they gave me piece of paper and told me to wait and someone will come get me with the wheelchair. I am 84 and this was set up when I purchased my ticket. My flight was at 4 . I have waited an hour for someone to show up after 3pm . After that I was told I won’t be able to board the plane because it’s too late. What a mess! My bags were taken! I ended up taking a another flight few hours later . When I arrived at my destination I found out my bags are missing. Again! I am 84 all my bags were checked in . I am not able to carry heavy items . I don’t have my belongings, my medication! This is was horrible , horrible service . Not only flying somewhere it’s stressful as it is these days and then this! My flight was over 10 h plus all the time I spent at the airport that was freezing cold ! Again I am 84! This was a nightmare. Thank you Lufthansa for making my trip hard to forget.

Pros: "Good crew, helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Food is not as good as some other airlines I’ve been on."
Pros: "Inflight services"
Cons: "Delayed flight, missed connecting flight due to that. On the ground staff should have better coordinated from arrival to boarding of next flight. Chaotic and short staffed security personnel at Frankfurt airport. Overall a pathetic experience"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Pros: "First i will say thanks to almighty God for the journey mercy, and from the pilot, the co pilots and the crew members were so amazing, such a good hospitality."
Cons: "Well everything thing was so amazing so far i cant even think of anything they can do better.. from my own view"
Pros: "The wheel chair service at Munich airport was excellent. She received us at the door, helped us find a connection after we lost our flight and communicating every step and giving us First Class service on coach. Thank you!"
Cons: "The brownies for dessert were terrible. Maybe fruit next time?"
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Cons: "Business class had economy seats which is not what you expect especially for an overnight flight"
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: "Great staff. Impeccable service. Nice flight."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Food was horrible. Breakfast consisted of a dry muffin and an oreo cookie"
Pros: "The fact that it was indeed a plane that went to europe. that's it."
Cons: "The staff (especially ticketing) was rude. And hung up on me when I asked for their name because they knew they were wrong."
Pros: "Nice plane, free checked bag, and a snack,"
Cons: "Left 20 minutes late as the copilot was late, middle row seat (as I refused to pay the seat choice charge, (and it was only a one hour flight.)"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The whole experience"
Pros: "We were flying on their newest Airbus A350-900. It’s a bummer. More seats, less room, not a very nice experience for eight hours. Packed in like sardines. I have travelled LH to Eu the last six summers. I intend to look for a new airline."
Cons: "They have cut back on everything: food, service, breathing space. Their breakfast was truly a joke-a small muffin, four tiny pieces of fruit, and a package of two Oreo cookies. For breakfast -agh. And their reduced staffing barely made it around to serve coffee before we landed."
Pros: "We left DFW in extremely hot weather. The ground crew managed the boarding to keep everyone out of the hot tunnel entry as long as possible. Even through there was a delay in boarding already, the crew kept us well informed. The cabin crew was very pleasant and accommodating. Smooth flight and still made it to our connecting flight on time."
Cons: "Leg room in coach is really cramped but that is all airlines unfortunately."
Cons: "No seat assigned at check-in or even as they begin boarding. I thought I was flying Lufthansa. Air Canada gate agents were condescending. Very disappointed."
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Cons: "Plane came in late and I miss my connecting flight to New York. I had to stay over night in Frankfurt, and fight to get room and meals services, due to their mistake!"
Pros: "Everything! By far the best flight that I have ever been on!"
Cons: "All was fine. No complaints!"
Cons: "No room for my knees."
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"
Pros: "Great crew good seat room"
Cons: "1.the screen had a gletch that it was doing a restart by itself 2.the boarding was confusing since the way to the gate is blocked and doesnt open until 50 min prior to boarding 3.there wasnt any groups for boarding except for business class and first class first then economy my seat was in the 51 row and i wasnt in the front of the line of boarding so i had to wait alot to get to my seat since everybody were putting their carry-on and blocking the aisle"
Pros: "Great Seats / Bedding Excellent Drinks Excellent Service Delicious Food."
Cons: "Boarding was a Zoo. No real First Class announcement; confusion of which line was Business, First, or Economy, no clear announcements. This is the 2nd time this is happened in a row. Not sure why. Movie Choices were pretty poor, but TV series made up for it."
Cons: "Delay"
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Cons: "No entertainment during the whole flight at all."
Cons: "I called the airline and paid for a specific ticket so I could have an aisle seat. They confirmed it was an aisle but Inhad 30F which is a window seat! I'll be calling Lufthansa for a refund. p"
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."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "To be waitlisted till gate openes"
Pros: "It was perfect"
Cons: "I missed flight to Los Angeles because of laziness and carelessness of Lufthansa employees. I came with the train on 12/26/16 at 8:33 am to catch flight to Los Angeles at 10:05 am. I had plenty of time. As soon as got of the train I got into line to check my luggage. I had boarding pass already. Line to check luggage was huge with 2-3 clerks to check luggage for all US flights. After while I complained that I will miss flight to several clerk who were standing around talking on the phones all the time but answer, if I got one was, sir you will be fine. After one hour I got to security check line which was equally long. I complained again no response. With probably 20 minutes left I cut the line on my one mad as hell. I got at 10:00 am at the gate and some older lady was like " Sorry sir we closed the flight". I said "What do you mean, it is 10 am and flight is at 10:05am??? "Sir we sold your ticket" I couldn't believe her words. Anyway they sent me to Munich to catch flight to LA next day. Best part I HAD TO PAY HOTEL IN MUNICH BECAUSE LUFTHANSA DID WANT TO COVER EXPENSES. I don't know what happened to famous German organizational skills or this is just Lufthansa and her careless employees."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "aircraft was clean and the crew was organized and very professional"
Pros: "We try to fly Lufthansa when we go to Europe (2x a year). This trip we upgraded to more leg room in economy and what a difference! Everything else was the same, which has always been excellent. Munich Airport has great food and shopping. Lufthansa's service is truly impeccable, the airline staff were constantly walking up and down the aisles offering food and drink and comfort. Great end to a three week trip in Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and of course Germany!"
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: "Pleasantly greeted"
Cons: "Lack of space makes flying pure torture. When will airrlines get it regarding customer needs?! Crew not accessible in between serving times"
Pros: "Quick flight, efficient boarding."
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable, but it was a short flight. Our layover was too short and our passport verification process almost made us miss our flight."
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The problem was a family with 4 children who failed to parent their children which made this 7 hour flight a nightmare. Their children yelled, screamed and cried the entire flight and their parents did nothing. Their children laid in the center aisles, jumped up and down in the seats like a trampoline. They played with the trays like a toy repeatedly opening and closing them for fun. They tossed pillows at each other and the father handed them back to them to do it again and again. The parents didn't even seat their children in - the flight attendant had to do it. In our section there was no sleeping only total frustration. I love kids but sitting behind totally irresponsible parents made this return flight a nightmare while awake"
Cons: "Flight crew inability to handle unruly passengers"
Pros: "Good Airline, perfect service"
Cons: "At the boarding que there was a Lufthansa employee singling out carry on bags for gate check, when they would clearly fit in the overhead. She addressed me and others in a curt and arguably rude tone of voice and mannerisms. No further instruction was given for the gate check process, hence I rolled the small suitcase to the entry of the aircraft, where the Purser asked why I would wish to check the bag. When I recounted the story, he chuckled and said, bring it aboard, there is no reason to check that bag."
Cons: "Not enough leg room in Economy. God reason to fly other airline"

Long delay, minimal crew engagement but comfy plane.

To charge $39 for a list and found help ticket is extortion—will they find my item for that price?

Terrible

Delta operated. Missed connecting flight due to single late crew member in dfw. 1.5 h late. Missed work and incurred costs of over $800. Delta failed to hold connecting flight(s) at gate and it actually left EARLY. Fail. Never again.

They canceled our flights that went on anyway.

Pros: "The plane condition."
Cons: "The flight attendants could have served some drinks in between the meals. They actually refused to serve something additionally when asked."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the crew were nice."
Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Klm is the best, even on a 40min they served small breakfast."
Cons: "When a bought my ticket, I had asked in the office about WiFi. They told me that you have WiFi on the plane. I had checked this information on KLM.com and saw the same, that you have WiFi. This was the reason, why a chose KLM! Then I tried to connected on board but I couldn’t! WiFi was not available. Crew told me that they don’t know anything about it! I was disappointed and angry."
Cons: "The plane is so old..,"
Cons: "The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines."
Pros: "The crew and the timing were ok"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Working wifi would be good. Better A/C. More comfortable seats"
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: "The crew is really welcoming"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow and a bit too hard"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Passenger who needed wheelchair assistance it took KLM 50 minutes to get him off plane which delayed our boarding. KLM not prepared to handle passengers with needs"
Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."
Pros: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"
Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"
Pros: "Everything was good except for the entertainment consul for one of our seats."
Cons: "One of our entertainment consuls had to be rebooted 4 times and still didn’t work. We gave up asking."

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."
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."

Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and because of this I missed my connection flight to Amsterdam"

Delayed six times plus one gate change. Charlotte airport was almost gridlocked with people, and not a place to sit. Not good when you are delayed for three hours.

The gate agent (when I got off my flight from Lexington to Charlotte) had dismissed the person who was supposed to wheelchair me to the next gate I waited 10 minutes for her to call for another wheelchair assistant After 25 minutes of saving I ask her to call again as no one had shown up She was too busy talking to a friend and then left and went up to check on the next flight while I sat there I personally flag down three people asking for assistance Finally one of them told me that a person with a clipboard type device would be the one to help me I explained I had had nothing to eat in Lexington my way there because the restaurant closed due to some kind of flooding or other plumbing problem before my order could be brought to me I saw a person with a clip for type of device is actually help me get to the restaurant where I waited in line to get a table This person stayed with me as long as she could before she was called to assist another customer I was able to get something to eat then had to walk to my fly and barely made it onto the flight I have never been treated so poorly as I was in this situation I have a new knee and was in a lot of pain and was hungry I would like someone from American to contact me and indicate what Itgey will do id to compensate me for my time, trouble, and inconvenience as well as pain in his poor treatment of a customer

We were delayed in Charlotte for almost 2 hours because American Airlines didn't have flight attendants for our flight.

In short, AA left me stranded in a strange city at midnight with no accommodation and no luggage. It was 18 degrees and I was in t-shirt and shorts. What a memory."
Cons: "LATAM is an absolutely horrible airline with horrible customer service. They changed the itinerary more than 3 times. I contacted KAYAK to help and you (KAYAK) did not help stating "that is the Airline's fault". This may be true.
