Reason: There are two queues 1 For people who did a web checkin 2 people who didn’t do a web checkin The Qatar staff at Hyderabad experienced a technical glitch because their only system failed and there was no backup option.

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Son got wings, so was happy."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "That was the most uncomfortable and cramped seat I had ever had on a plane flight. Even sitting on the pillow did not help."
Pros: "I like that I arrived at my destination safely."
Cons: "My allergies were bothering me due to the airlines allowing animals to travel as passengers, in this case a rabbit. I am very allergic to animals. My breathing was compromised."
Pros: "This had one of the best attendants I have encountered. She was extra friendly and made us feel good."
Pros: "Good crew. Nice seats."
Cons: "This A320 aircraft departed LGA with the first class toilet inoperative. Flight was entirely full. First class passengers had to fight their way to the rear two toilets, around serving carts, etc. Cabin Crew was very good natured about all of this; but flight crew never mentioned it."
Pros: "they let me drink the whole can of soda..."
Cons: "turn lights on during service. be friendlier. allow to purchase seats anywhere BESIDES the middle seat. seriously?"
Pros: "Seating lacked the ability to recline in any way. There were no snacks or drinks whatsoever"
Cons: "The seats could recline. On a top tier airline I expect comfortable seating that declines for the price"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed.. this cause a lot of inconvienece.."
Pros: "No surprises. On time. Courteous. I suppose the most amazing thing is their app. It tells you when your bags get on! Also I forgot that I had a knife in my pocket. I ran back to the desk and she went back, found my bag, put the knife in there. Wow. What service. Also I notice that Atlanta is a lot nicer than it use to be. Attendants are more friendly and loading is more organized. Way to go Delta."
Cons: "Flight took off three hours late. After we boarded the plane, we had to sit on the plane for over three hours before we finally took off. When you’re on a flight that’s already 15 hours long, the last thing you want to do is sit on the plane for an extra three hours for nothing."
Pros: "Everything was on time and efficient. I also liked that the captain came on and updated us on arrival, turbulence, weather, etc."
Cons: "Flight was delayed out of St. Louis causing several of us to miss our connecting flight from Salt Lake City to Portland. Delta was of very little help in assisting us in making a connecting flight. They could have at least helped with travel arrangements and provided us with a little food, a pillow and a blanket as we waited in their terminal for the next flight on their airline which was a several hour wait. I understand these things happen but the passengers didn't cause the problem and Delta needs to take care of people better if they expect to earn repeat business."
Cons: "Ac not working at last 30 minutes of flight."
Pros: "They were comprehensive and tried to move fast"
Cons: "Delayed flight because they didn’t had the crew ready"
Pros: "In flight entertainment is nice but only seems to happen on shorter legs of the trip. Also, too many useless interruptions from crew during movie. You don't have to keep thanking the passengers throughout the flight. And the volume through your headset is way too loud on crew announcements compared to regular listening volume of your program."
Cons: "Forced on later flight."
Cons: "We lost our whole vacation and had to pay for the plans fare twice because My last name was spelled wrong on our tickets and we were unable to use them because my passport didn’t match the name on the ticket. We had to rebook everything pay almost twice as much for the plane fare, our Lodi g cost more and our trip was delayed for two weeks. Vyama is blaming us for spelling our name wrong and claimes that it’s our fault this happened because everything is automated. There saying they don’t touch anything that we enter into the booking but somehow everything they claim we entered is now in all capital letters and the space between our first name and middle name is now gone and all run together. The coustomer service number gets you to someone in India. I have tried to get this addressed four times now at first they tried to place the responsibility on the airlines now us and they have hung up on me twice. Kayak has been worthless, they also just pass the responsibility on to someone else. We will never use them again ant I intend to make sure that this mess is put out in social media to hopefully keep others from having their travel plans ruined by their flawed system."
Cons: "They changed my flight to a different one departing 2 hours earlier and did not notify me! The original flight was still available & they would not let me take it despite my reservation paper work. CRAZY! I have a two hour drive to the airport this gave me the option to leave home at 2:30am or go the night before and pay for a hotel. Flight was managed by DELTA who also did not care! All involved blamed each other. Beware"
Pros: "Friendly, efficient"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours."
Cons: "Slow Wifi."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "We purchased tickets together and our seats were not together when we checked in. We had one small roller bag for the two of us and we ended up having to gate check it along with 3 other people and then there was clearly enough room for it once we were boarded."
Pros: "In flight movies"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late taking off which made us miss our connection to chicago so we are stuck in Atlanta tonight with unplanned expenses we were not planning on!"
Pros: "Had a fast flight from LA to SLC was very pleasant crew was great."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Seatbelts very short given ample seat size"
Pros: "Everything from the check-in to the landing was great. We were well informed about what was going on with out luggage (we were on a regional flight) and the assortment of free snacks were superb! I guess I'll be a returning customer"
Cons: "I was expecting some form of entertainment (radio, overhead monitor, etc) on the CRJ700. But it really don't take away from the experience since T-Mobile partnered with the Wi-Fi service and I received a free hour of Wi-Fi!"
Cons: "My flight got to New York so late!!!! I missed my international flight."
Cons: "Not great communication from gate or staff on board. Failed to provide adequate water. No ice on super warm flight. Just bad experience overall."

Pros: "Entertainment good. Service good."
Cons: "Disembark a disaster with broken jetway"
Pros: "I was cleared for standby! Flight attendant at the stl gate is always friendly and willing to help! I love her!"
Cons: "I waited almost 6 hours on the phone the night before the flight to get on standby! Almost didn't get the flight! Was charged $50 only to not get on my next flight because it was over booked! Flight attendant was very rude!"
Pros: "I liked that I was able to get able to get an earlier flight!"
Cons: "I don't like that I had to pay $50 extra dollars for standby on both legs of my flight! I am a very loyal delta customer and these past times flying I feel like my favorite airline is turning into the bad airlines delay everytime, problems with the plane fare prices too high! I'm starting to think about taking my business elsewhere!"
Pros: "10 minutes early departure"
Cons: "There isn't enough seats in the gate area and sitting on the runway for 10 extra minutes we could have been early"
Pros: "The African-American gentleman flight attendant was extremely helpful, funny, engaging, and service exceeded normal expectations! The plane had blue lights & calming music on in the cabin."
Cons: "The plane didn't have full catering options."
Pros: "It was great and very roomy I felt like a movie STAR!!!"
Pros: "The fight was delayed but they gave us complimentary drinks on the flight. Nice."
Pros: "On time flight. Comfort seats"
Pros: "We actually got food! Not the usual peanuts, pretzels or cookie. Although minimal ( carrots, celery,radishes w/ dip & crackers), it was nice since I had just ran to the gate after a 4 1/2 hr flight from the east coast. Why can't this be done on more flights? What a nice touch!"
Cons: "Flight delayed so missed the connection. Had to pay $120 for hotel because the next flight was next day. Had to pick up luggage from connecting city and re check them the next day. Seat tray was crooked in the plane."
Pros: "Comfortable and Clean"
Pros: "The punctuality and the entertainment"
Cons: "Perhaps a more organized boarding process"
Pros: "Great crew, especially on a long-haul flight. Decent food, considering how many people they were serving. Best bathrooms I have ever experienced on a large plane."
Cons: "Legroom, legroom, legroom!! If we are to be treated as sardines, at least pack us in oil. It gets worse every time we fly. Crew agreed; the airlines need to be put on notice. It makes their job impossible."
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The airport was good"
Cons: "There's could be a better customer service at the counter of the plan the Lufthansa worker that work at the front disck they was so rod and the travelers has a lot of issues with them and the way the talk to the travelers they was like we're kids or slave to them"
Cons: "Connection time unacceptable with delay in departure from London"
Cons: "Due to a delayed flight the night before, we were rescheduled and consequently missed another flight. Nothing was done about this since it was a separate trip. We had to pay another $1300 for new airline tickets to get back to the US."
Cons: "Never happened,missed flight"
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."
Cons: "The flight itself was good. But the connection wasn't. For this schedule, it is next to impossible to make the connection. The gate that the SEA to FRA flighy arrives at is at least half an hour away from the gate that SEA to MAA leaves from and there is a security checkpoint in between."
Cons: "Flight was 45 minutes late arriving, causing me to miss my connection to Lufthansa and forcing reroute of whole trip."
Pros: "Fantastic seats are very comfortable. Makes long trips like this one actually enjoyable."
Cons: "For business class the food could be improved."
Cons: "Suitcase did not arrive, had a 3+ hours layover in Frankfurt, enough to get my bag sorted and sent to Oslo, but did not arrive"
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: "Attentive and friendly staff, great food and plenty of drinks!!!"
Pros: "After the first flight on the incredible new plane, this was a disappointment. Plane seemed old and dilapidated."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Only thing I liked was getting off that compact death trap"
Pros: "Arrived safely; good selection of movies; sound reasonable."
Cons: "Departed and landed late; virtual no assistance in close connections; even though I paid for economy plus, the seat was terribly uncomfortable and did not properly recline; overhead cabin storage was limited and even did not easily accommodate carry on luggage; food was served cold and unreasonably small dinner and breakfast."
Pros: "This 10+ hour plane ride was one of the longest and one of the best flying experiences we have had. The flight was smooth and comfortable. The flight attendants were very nice and their hospitality were second to none. We will definitely fly with Lufthansa again!"
Cons: "A little more cushion on the seats please!"
Pros: "Had ridiculously long bus ride from terminal to plane. Plane was parked on the outer reaches of the airport. This happens far too often on Lufthansa when connecting in Franfort. Build more gates!!"
Cons: "Business clsss sweats on A321 were coach seats with the center seat left empty. Not sir it is worth the higher fare."
Pros: "The business cabin was excellent for a European airline."
Pros: "The service. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Boarding was fast. Lots of bathrooms."
Cons: "wifi was really bad, and they said that's how it is poor choice of movies cramped seats poor food choices"

Cons: "Food Seats"
Pros: "Service was exceptional and prompt"
Pros: "The service levels of the crew are the best I have experienced - the quantity and quality of the food and beverage offering is very good Lufthansa also has the cleanest planes I have ever traveled on - and I have traveled plenty for business Lufthansa App is the best This was my first Lufthansa flight and it wont be my last"
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Flight left on time"
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: "Pleasantly surprised by the leg room for economy class--albeit I'm of small stature"
Cons: "Being on-board at the gate for an hour, due to a technical issue not meeting flight captain expectation"
Pros: "The crew was a 10. They were wonderful."
Cons: "I was in business class and the tv remote did not work."
Pros: "Really pampered."
Cons: "Baggage allowance was less."
Pros: "Not a good experience overall."
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive in Naples with us. We heard nothing from Lufthansa despite making numerous attempts to email and call the airline. Our hotel tried to call as well to see if someone could at least tell us if and when our luggage might arrive.We had to go out and buy clothes and personal items. It was a terrible way to start a holiday."
Pros: "The attendants were very respectful and courteous, most of them"
Cons: "Boarding is disorganized, flight was delayed, baggage took over an hour to get."
Pros: "Everyone at Lufthansa are very friendly so thank you everyone we love you"
Pros: "Stressed out crew. No pillows."
Pros: "Lots of movies to choose from. Meal was great. I liked that the cabin crew gave us plenty of water & choice of fruit juices"
Cons: "All was great."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "The seats are hard and we were packed like sardines in the back rows. Wish that they would pass out water more often, we were dehydrated and also cold. Choice of movies were ok. The kids movies were the best"
Cons: "Seat co figuration is awful especially for families. Got very warm on the pls rand then very cold."
Pros: "flight on time The crew as friendly and professional"
Cons: "I was not able to pick my seat in advance. The entertainment was geared to children or older movies. Food mediocre We were told about our flight change but not about what we needed to change until we tried to check in on our last day of our trip wasting time on our last day flight ful and packed in to small seats"
Pros: "The coach seats were much more comfortable than Air Canada's. The flight was without incident. Staff were great! Accommodating, friendly and efficient! Incredible choices of movies, news, etc controlled by individual passenger."
Pros: "The seats felt pretty uncomfortable after a few hours--they were much better on the Airbus 340-600. Pretty good leg room for a 6' person. The food was very tasty, and I loved that the utensils were real metal. The hot towels at the beginning and end of the flight were a nice touch. Lots of drinks too"
Cons: "The bathrooms were very small. The padding on the seat could've been better and it felt cramped when the person I front of me fully reclined their seat. Our overhead bin was used by the staff for storing cribs, so we had to use other bins."
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew, efficient service, nice breakfast pastry for the short flight to Frankfurt"
Cons: "Would have been nice to have an entertainment option, but I had a book, so the 2.5 hrs went fast enough."
Pros: "Everything on the plane seems clean and well maintained - nothing is broken, worn or soiled. Lufthansa spends a little more effort than other airlines to cut down on waste when it comes to their in-flight food service (real silverware and reuseable dishes). The Munich airport is by far more convenient than Frankfurt when making connections in Germany."
Cons: "I was a bit disappointed with the limited seat availability/choices. If you cannot check in online several hours ahead of the departure you are typically left with center/middle seats in the area of the plane."
Pros: "It departed and arrived on time. The boarding process was very efficient thanks to Frankfurt's automated ticked checking gates."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Transfer gate is too far away"
Pros: "I liked almost everything. And according to me, it does not make a difference if we rate things good or excellent at a certain point in time. As long as it is good, it can be excellent. I mean including crew. People have good days and bad days. I am sure the crew can say the same about passengers."
Cons: "What could have been better is: - the email that the airline generates and senda to people a couple of days prior to flight directs you to a site where you are supposed to fill in the blanks. About Covid. The thing is that you cannot submit it unless you as a passenger fill out an Austrian address. The electronic form does not have the option to rule out staying in Austria and indicating that you are transiting in Vienna. I had to fill that form out (at the Address in Austria section) with sentences like “not applicable” “transitting” and also had to google the Vienna Airport address for the zip code so it could be submitted. The form forced me to fool the it. Not cool. Frustrating."
Cons: "To arrive on time."
Pros: "Everything was excellent . I was very happy with this flight.Thank you so much."
Cons: "Seat spacing is small, to the point that it's impossible to remain in the seat few hours without physical pain in your body"
Pros: "I do like the clean aircraft, and pretty precise service. Also it was on time , for comfort the pillow and the blanket was nice . Some airlines doesn’t give anything anymore! Which is awful."
Cons: "Just a small thing the lady who was serving and picking up the used cups said I have to finish the juice and after she can take it away. But I couldn’t finish because it was too sweet and I didn’t like the juice. So I had to get up and bring the cup to the back. That wasn’t nice. Also they at but flexible about giving choices. Only one kind of sandwich they had but I think there was one other kid also."
Cons: "They lost our bags, twice! We had 4 pieces of luggage that were checked together. They flew out of the same airport we did. They lost 3 out of the 4 bags, but assured me all 3 were on the very next flight. The next flight came in but only 2 more had been put on that flight. Still waiting on 4th..."
Pros: "Good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Seat could be more comfortable"
Pros: "We could walk around as needed. No restrictions. Free wine with meals!"
Cons: "Staff not friendly or offering of assistance."
Pros: "Service was outstanding!"
Pros: "On time take off"
Pros: "I get Airpoints with the flight, crew were lovely."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, so a few delays (as they were asking if anyone would layover to release a seat) and they were being very strict on the one bag per traveller, but that’s fair enough considering it was busy."
Cons: "I had a weelchair and nobody assist me in Viene in Austria"
Pros: "Everything was great. Lovely and efficient crew. Sound not good on films but we were in economy so maybe just the disposable earbuds. A small point and didn’t spoil an otherwise great service."
Pros: "Great staff, good meals, snacks, and drinks thru the entire flight. Good movie selections."
Pros: "The flight attendants worked very hard Patient and courteous."
Cons: "Drinks are varied Food needs improvement The bread is low The vegetarian meal is poor"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "nothing I can think of"
Cons: "Changing planes on Vienna was not easy so 1-hour layover was barely enough (required running)"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and very timely."
Cons: "Very little leg room."
Pros: "We ended up being rebooked from Austria near to Egyptian air on route to Cairo. This was the best thing that could’ve happened as Austrian air was inferior. Egyptian error on the other hand had very gracious staff, very comfortable seating, and while the food was average it was better than Austrian air"
Cons: "We ended up being rebooked from Austria near to Egyptian air on route to Cairo. This was the best thing that could’ve happened as Austrian air was inferior. Egyptian error on the other hand had very gracious staff, very comfortable seating, and while the food was average it was better than Austrian air"
Pros: "That is was on time!"
Cons: "That they charge you for luggage when international flight accepts one bag per person!!! this is Nickle and diming people."
Pros: "Very orderly fashion onto boarding"
Cons: "My suitcase got destroyed"
Pros: "The air crew service"
Cons: "1. No option to pay for a second luggage; the company website very unclear about the luggage policy; no contact information as well as no web payment service; days before my flight, spent a lot of time and efforts to know that I could pay for a second luggage at the airport on my departure; 2. Paid $120 or so for the second luggage!!!??? After decades flying Austrian I will try switching to your competitors."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled at the time we were suppose to board. We had to find another flight via Istanbul and got to our destination 6 hours late. Won't use Kayak again."
Cons: "When our plane arrived late, many on board had missed connections. We received no help/guidance at gate, other than to be told to go up one floor. One floor up we had to go thru security to reach customer service. 100 people lined up for customer service from 3 Austrian airline reps. After 2 hours of standing, there were still 27 people ahead of me. The woman behind me gave me the local phone number for Austrian airlines and I was able to get on a flight to US leaving in 30 minutes. I managed to make it, and would not have had I waited another hour in line. Why no surge of staff to help? All 3 help numbers on my Lufthansa e-mail receipt could not help. Horrible experience."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "Could not tell that I need gluten free meal. And the early check-in didn't work."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Austrian Airlines and Lufthansa."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment included so many mediocre films, with hardly a classic among them. I suppose those are cheaper, but I would think both Austrian and Lufthansa (they seemed to be using almost identical entertainment systems with almost identical offerings) would benefit from limiting their movie options much more towards movies with, say, above a 70% Rotten Tomatoes rating or above average box office sales. Even if they had fewer films, say 40 instead of 56, the ones they have would be more popular."
Pros: "Free drinks."
Pros: "Food and service was great as always! comfortable seats and quality in flight entertainment!"
Pros: "Left on time, exit row seats and a simple, yet adequate meal. The beverage cart came by a few times."
Cons: "No tv, maps or entertainment at all."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "We flew from TLV to Skopje via Vienna. None of the flight were on time and there was zero communication about the flight status. We arrived to the gate to start the boarding and they just told us wait here for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes we were asked to wait another 20 minutes. Only when we missed the take off time by 10 minutes they bothered to update us and inform us that the flight is being delayed in 2 hours."
Pros: "Ok flight' late leaving from Vienna because pulling luggage when passengers missing,."
Pros: "They had a yummy snack. And fresh veggies. With great coffee. And the host told us abou the history of a Vienna dessert."
Pros: "the stewardess gave me coffee even if she already passed by me (because I was sleeping) I appreciated that :)"
Pros: "The staff from service center helped me to solve problem with my flight, it was short connection, around 35 minutes, and I missed my aircraft, but in the service center gave me ticket to the next flight, The problem was solved."
Cons: "Boarding in the first flight was late for 15 minutes, but may be it has some objective reasons."
Cons: "very tight connection in VIE after a small late departure from LHR but we make the connection."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing, gate was changed at the last minute without the passengers being warned"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour after boarding to wait for passengers from another flight. I understand waiting 10-15 mins but one hour was way too long."
Pros: "Quick boarding and exit off the plane"
Cons: "No little foot rest , no blanket in the winter"
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight along with my girlfriend from beginning to end. The flight attendants were very courteous & the service was fast & the food & drink portions were generous."
Pros: "Good food and drinks,great movies"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom,needs upgrade too."
Pros: "Everything was wonderful ,except for the poor food."
Cons: "The flight was 9 and half hours and the food was very poor, I was starving ,maybe AA can improve that, it would be nice if they could add a little bit of fruit and a yogurt for a good digestion .Also, the sandwich they gave us at the end was so small ,maybe they can give us a real sandwich instead ..Sorry AA ,but you need to work on that .For the price I paid I can fly United ,they don't let me starve."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants had an attitude problem, which put a wrench in my otherwise pleasant flight."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The lack of space. It was a good thing it was a short flight"
Pros: "I like the personalized service and the understanding crew."
Cons: "For the amount of people flying into and out of Thera, the check-in system could be improved."
Pros: "They were efficient. It was on time. The staff was pleasant."
Cons: "The plane seemed older. It was a bit noisy. No entertainment. It was however, just a short distance and served this purpose well."
Cons: "Less than 24 hours notice."
Pros: "The only positive aspect about this experience was the crew on board the plane. They were pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "The true cost of this ticket was extremely poorly communicated. The baggage policy was not clear when I purchased my ticket, and I was charged an additional 30 Euros upon boarding to check a bag that met the carry-on size requirements (I had looked this up ahead of time), but because it was in addition to my purse (which fit under the seat), I was forced to pay to check it. Had I been aware that this ticket only permitted a purse-sized carry-on when purchasing the ticket, I would have selected a different ticket/carrier entirely. What was even more confusing was that I had flown on a similar ticket from London to Vienna, and didn't have any issue bringing a carry-on and a purse, so of course I was surprised when they told me I had to pay an additional 30Euro for the same two bags! When I tried to explain this to the agent, she argued with me and was very unhelpful. Overall, a very negative experience on Austrian Air. I will not be returning."
Pros: "The seats were so comfortable"
Pros: "Nice crew, good food."
Cons: "Both bathroom were not working in business class area."
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Cons: "When its rain we shouldn’t walk to the air plain"
Pros: "Loved the smooth ride."
Cons: "Bathroom was pretty nasty"
Pros: "Great airline"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and flight was calm"
Cons: "The coffe and breakfast."
Pros: "The crew and the timing were ok"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"
Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "seat reservation. having to pay for luggage...."
Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."
Cons: "Larger meals."
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"
Pros: "Crew was great, very nice"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."
Pros: "Food was excellent, service from staff was friendly, and entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Not a lot of shoulder room being in the middle seat. But it had adjustments options for a lot of other things which were good."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."
Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk. No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."
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: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."
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: "The flight was great."
Pros: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"
Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"
Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."
Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food."
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: "KLM food and service are great"
Pros: "The flight crew were kind, polite, and attentive."
Cons: "Bussing to the plane was a bit odd, but the crew remained organized in doing so. When we arrived to the plane, they had both entrances open so that those sitting near the rear of the plane would enter from the back. Plane was a little chilly, but I have come to expect that one most flights."
Pros: "Even for this short flight, drinks and sandwich was provided staff were efficient and friendly"
Pros: "They flew full speed to catch up with the delays."
Cons: "Departure was scheduled with one hour delay. When everyone was boarded they mentioned a leaking toilet. It took them 1,5 hours to disable the toilet. In the mean time, no drinks, no snacks, nothing. So we should depart at 18:00 but it became 19:30. Our first drinks and meal was no earlier then 21:00. The crew should have anticipated better that the technical problem would at least take one hour and give everyone a drink at least."
Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."
Pros: "Flights left on time, arrived ahead of time. Seats comfortable. Baggage arrived quickly. No charge for wine/beer, although I do not imbibe when flying long distance. Food ok for airline food."
Cons: "Unable to pick seats in advance,, were assigned seats that did not recline for 11 hour flight. One bathroom not functioning. Very limited movie choices for inflight entertainment. Seat belts much shorter than other airlines, so very confining, unable to loosen to relax in any position other than sitting straight in seat. In Rome had to check in & go through security at Terminal 5 then get bussed to Terminal 3. Only airport where we had to take out all electronics, including converter plugs, headphones, etc, place in a flimsy clear plastic bag ( that broke ) to go through security. Line to check bags pretty slow for number of passengers. Glad we had plenty of time."
Pros: "Crew very efficient Food was reasonably good Good movie selection"
Cons: "Boarding at AMS was very disorganized. No row boarding for economy, just all at once Lights stay on during the flight, so difficult to sleep"
