Not at all happy with this trip Worst experience faced

Not at all happy with this trip Worst experience faced

They can improve the food, specially dessert.

Kayak canceled and re- issued my ticket at the last minute so my seating got messed up. They did it without my permission

I am deaf & travel alone to India & back to Seattle via Doha by Qatar Airways. They did an awesome services, very friendly and helpful. Since we wear masks all the time during the flights, How can the air-hostess communicate with me? I came to an idea that we communicate each other through texting on my phone which was very helpful! One negative comment is that there are no closed captioning for English movies & dramas on TV. It need to add accessibility for deaf people to enjoy watching during their flights. I will fly with Qatar Airways again in the future.

It was hot inside the plane and the boarding was very crowded. But the seat comfort, and entertainment are spectacular

Compared to other used airlines over more than 30 years, it was an excellent experience.

I could not able to travel because of the restrictions from srilanka to india, no notification was given to me about that. Then i changed my ticket to get there.

Pros: "Staff was outstanding"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."

Pros: "Our meals were luke warm at best while the bread was still semi frozen. Food quality has always been low on Qatar flights but this time was the absolute worst. I fly with Qatar for work everything 4 months and that's solely due to convenience."

Pros: "Excellent customer service, smooth boarding, good food."
Pros: "the best air line I've ever been"

Rued and unhelpful airport staff when asking for directions. Food is really bad.

The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!

Cons: "The entertainment system did not work properly"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "The 777 is way behind the 380s comfort."

Cons: "The seats were narrow and seemed a bit smaller than usual."
Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"
Pros: "At least inform me that bag is left behind so i wont walk around around baggaage belt for hours at the destination it happend both sides thanks"
Cons: "Waiting inconvenience"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The crew was non existent when something was needed, and a flight attendant tried to move us from our purchased seats to accommodate a woman who moved 3 times. While the attendant was mistaken; he insisted on seeing disturbing our sleep and asked to see our boarding pass as if we were not being honest. All that he said was , “oops, wrong row” and moved on as if nothing happened. No apology, nothing."
Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"
Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety"

Pros: "Lovely flight crew and great film selection"
Cons: "Would have liked more healthy food options d"
Pros: "The stewardess were friendly enough. When the cabin got chilly I received another blanket. The complimentary beverages was nice. No chips though. The individual tv screen was a plus."
Cons: "Seat was not very comfortable. I couldn’t recline it back all the way to sleep. I was very dry and did not realize that there was water in the galley that I could have helped myself to. Not enough leg room for tall people like me without having to purchase it."
Pros: "Javier the flight attendant was so welcoming and attentive. Flight got l fit late, but arrived on time. Service was efficient and respectful. Was not as crowded as prior flight and was able to eat the meal"
Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"
Pros: "Expenting better from the Airline and Airport. Airpor has only 2 lounges at other terminals for passengers flying either Delta or United, Not for Emirstes and no Priority Pass. The service was not as expected, took me more than 25 min to get a flight attendant to reach my seat to request a glass of water... when I went to the back of the plane to get water I was told to get back to my sest since seatbelt sign was on (it happend to be turned on for 12 hrs over a 14hr flight... Other than that service is better, than modt of US airlines. I flight frequently and I have boarded Emirates before, economy and business, I feel that they do not deserve best airline qualification for economy, fir example KLM is much better."
Cons: "Attention of Flight Attendants Wait before boarding No major airline alliance or frequent flyer program For pay WIFI a complicated selection in the menu and no runs for extra water or drinks Old headphones not compatible eith other comercialized and used by the rest of the world."
Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."
Pros: "I flew from Orlando DL to Dubai ,and from Dubai to cape town and both flight I was selected to seat on the middle seat,f that happens on my return flights to Orlando fl ,I will never fly emirates again"

Cons: "I require assistance due to a spinal injury which makes walking and standing difficult but not impossible. When we arrived at Dubai I was told my name was not on the list for assistance even though I had been taken to the flight in a wheelchair and informed check-in and flight crew. The Emerates assistance people made it seem as if they were doing us a favour by assisting us,made us stand around waiting for a buggy then for the train at no time did they show any respect or compassion for the people they were supposed to be assisting."
Pros: "The crew was very helpfully and nice"

Pros: "I was fully satisfied"
Cons: "Onboard upgrades for one way was too expensive"
Pros: "This is my first flight out of Nairobi (have made 8-10 others) for which the airline boarded using anything other than a division between first & economy classes. Emirates boarded economy passengers using zones (A-F), which was more orderly."
Pros: "Wow totally worth it. I'm now spoiled by how fantastic this airline is. Entertainment, service, food, and comfort. If emirates is flying to my destination I will for sure use them."
Cons: "Screen was black and white most of flight"
Pros: "The flight was empty and the luxury to choose your open row of seats"
Pros: "The Captain spoke to us a few times and the crew were absolutely amazing. Best flight Ive ever been on."

Cons: "Prices have gone up"
Pros: "Entertainment and food are always reliably good on Turkish."

Cons: "Food is not great and the flight was delayed by an hour"
Pros: "Nice flight crew"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Everything was on time . Ground staff +crew members their know there work better then any other airlines"
Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"

Pros: "Not much. The plane didn’t fall apart? I wasn’t poisoned?"
Cons: "The seats barely recline, the food is heated garbage, the movie options are few and stale, the flying and landing were amateur-level and vomit-inducing, and the service is curt at best."
Pros: "Probably best economy class service and amenities and timings."
Cons: "The serbice qnd food was terrible"
Pros: "Food was excellent!"
Pros: "That I arrived at my destination alive."
Cons: "Every staff person we had contact with made us feel as though we were not a priority in any way. We were constantly given misinformation. Our flight was two hours out when it was returned to our departure city due to a passenger health issue. It was not properly explained to us and we were in no way compensated for the inconvenience. Once back at our departure city (Miami) we sat there for an hour or more. They chose to feed us during that delay. Due to this we missed our connecting flight in Istanbul to Rome. This also caused us to miss our transportation from Rome to Compania, Italy. We were told by airline staff on the plane that we would be put up in a hotel over night. When we arrived at the terminal we had no idea where we should go or who we should see. Every representative we spoke to told us to go somewhere else. Truth is it felt like no one we spoke to knew what to tell us or really cared at all. One representative told us we were not entitled to overnight accommodations. We insisted we were told we were and it literally took hours on the ground to straighten the problem out and get to a hotel. By then it was so late that we only got a couple hours of sleep and had to be back at the airport for our next flight. The second flight from Istanbul to Naples, Italy was better. I do not think I would use this airline again. My entire party got an overall sense that people were untrained and lacking in any form of customer service. Not the flight attendants but all the people we had to deal with on the ground. My age plus health issues and walking problems made everything more difficult. We were sent al over the massive airlines terminal with all our carry on luggage only to find when we got to where we were going we had been sent to the wrong place. On top of all this each of us had to pay a VISA fee to get out of the terminal and to the hotel. Just a total nightmare. Prior to taking this flight I contacted Turkish Airlines and spoke to a customer service person and explained that I needed to take with me a small portable oxygen concentrator that I would need to use while in Italy. I needed to know the procedure for bringing that equipment on the airline. I was told that although he could not answer that question He would pass it on to his supervisors and I would receive an answer via email prior to my flight. I never received a response and as a result did not have my needed oxygen while abroad."
Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."
Pros: "Always excellent"
Cons: "I think the food is so little, and also there is no snak for passangers ."
Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"
Cons: "second leg (Istanbul to Johannesburg) crew were rude!!!"
Pros: "The entertainment system was nice, the drinks were good, and the food was OK in Economy Class"
Cons: "The cabin crew was not very outgoing and not proactive in any way when it came to helping customers. The overall 777 plane was OK. I would have liked to see if the A380 was nicer. The entertainment screens were lower resolution with a good, but not great selection of content."
Pros: "It was on time and we got there safely, otherwise not memorable in any way."
Cons: "The staff...not very outgoing....they clearly wish that they were somewhere else."
Pros: "Friendly crew, entertainment system"
Cons: "No air or ventilation on the flight. I took four flights on this trip and all were hot and uncomfortable. Space was very tight. I’m not very tall, yet I was struggling to get comfortable or even eat in the small space of my seat."
Cons: "Boarding at Ataturk Istanbul airport was happening randomly. They did not follow the group boarding like in IAD airport."
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"

Cons: "Seats a bit too crowded"
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Pros: "Better food and service than other airlines on which I've traveled recently. Loading passengers was disciplined and speedy. Staff very helpful. Istanbul airport is great for a long wait. If you go to a gate waiting area with no flight soon, you can stretch out and sleep. Good English-language bookstore."
Pros: "Crew are always available and helpful"
Cons: "Food was dreadful. I thought I had chosen a seat online, but discovered I was in a middle seat. Having 3 seats on the sides makes it very difficult for the window seat occupant to maneuver."
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Cons: "The veg food is quiet bland"
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Pros: "Decent food & entertainment but that doesn't change the fact that my flight didn't actually go to my destination, which is the purpose of booking a flight after all, no?"
Cons: "Rerouted us to Adana without warning. No help in rebooking flights. No instructions as to what we were supposed to do. Had to stand in several very long lines - incredibly disorganized. Lost an entire day of my trip."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "We were in the plane over Istanbul airport for more than half an hour because we did not have the permission to land. That put a lot a pressure on us because we had less than 20 minutes to catch our connecting flight to US."
Pros: "Good food. Great service."
Cons: "Small leg room. Display of entertainment system was poor quality."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"

Pros: "on time, fast boarding, food ok for distance, entertainment ok for distance"
Cons: "Crew not very motivated, almost rude; gate at end of airport in Istanbul, ear plugs are bad"

Service and food could be better. Horrible food and crew service.

The seats are not comfortable but there is a good space for the legs. Food was OK.

The flight was canceled for no reason and never heard from them. Luckily Germany has an excellent train system to get us to Frankfort.

Overbooked flight. No seat for me. I had to stay extra day because of it. No customer service available for a whole that time. I spent 3h trying to get in touch with them. No luck.

Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "They run out of chicken and only had pasta dinner left. I don't like pasta ."

Pros: "Crew was nice. I will go again with Lufthansa."
Pros: "The boarding process was well organized and fast."

Cons: "The worst food I have ever had the displeasure of having in my mouth. The staff kept bumping into me and therefore did not sleep at all."

Cons: "My sun glasses were stolen out of my luggage !!"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed by over 45 minutes because of some technical issues with the plane but the crew serving us was ever smiling and very courteous.

Cons: "Delayed flight!"
Pros: "Very satisfied"
Pros: "Once again the crew was great and helped me find a place to stow my carry on since I was in the emergency row. The snack was also very tasty."

Cons: "My luggage destroied"
Pros: "on time Family Check in"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive. It's clear they hire for people with high EQs."

Pros: "I like everything. Everything orderly and perfect."
Cons: "The screen for viewing movies were not functioning all the time."

Cons: "no seat tilt"
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Cons: "It took too long to drop by luggage. Some of the crew wasn't friendly."
Pros: "This was a fantastic flight -- the crew were very friendly and helpful, the legroom was great for "regular" economy class, and the flight was on time. The direct flight was so much nicer with young children than having connections. Would fly again any time."
Cons: "I really can't think of anything to complain about... the touch screen in my daughter's entertainment unit was a bit flaky, but that's about it."
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: "Not enough water was offered by flight attendants Wasn't offered an after dinner drink One of the flight attendant wasn't very pleasant"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly once I managed through the line for the rebooking because of the strike."

Pros: "The flight went by very quickly and peacefully."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind and that's a good thing!"
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 liked the in flight movies"
Cons: "Can't say there was anything I didn't."
Cons: "Didn't take it"
Pros: "Friendly crew, overall international flight experience was comfortable. Thank you."
Cons: "Spicy food"
Pros: "vunderbar"
Pros: "Smoothness"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "That the flight left on time and arrived early. The flight attendant was very friendly but knew his job well, and went the extra mile to be sure we were all comfortable."
Cons: "That the plane seemed noisy (from the back row at least). That the flight attendant did not help me find my seat. After travelling almost 24 hours I was tired and was trying to find the seat using the boarding gate number. I figured out I should have been in 9 D by the end of the flight. Instead I sat in the last row because it was empty and there was not a seat 26A. I almost missed this flight because my boarding pass said 26A and really it was 27A. I did look at the board. I did not compare the board to the ticket, and the numbers were so close my tired brain thought they matched. When it was time to board I checked at gate 26A and she sent me around the construction. I told the guy there (27A) I was looking for 26A and he said to go around the construction. I told him they sent me to him and he insisted I go around the construction. I would have missed the plane if someone else had not come up just then and said he was going to Richmond. At that point I told the guy I was too, and he checked my ticket. Some of the problem was my tired brain and you cannot fix that. Perhaps when someone tells your employee that they have already been sent around the construction the employee should just check the ticket instead of trying to send them back."
Pros: "Flight was 10 minutes late departing but a short flight time led to us arriving in CDG on time."
Cons: "Baggage delivery to carousel 6 at CDG took over 40 minutes with delivery coming in small batches......the flight time was shorter!"
Pros: "Everything. Great crew, great food, good selection of entertainment."

Terrible

I do not know how, but, rude crew and counter personnel is here, rest of things looks pretty standard without any difference with other airlines, that was not the case in the past

Listening covid restrictions and following them is completely nonsense. Avoid touching others? How when plane is full and everybody who pass around touchs me. Keep distance?? How???? Avoid walking in the plane but also wash your hands regularly with soap and water? How? I should avoid walking but at the same time you want me to wash hand regularly? It means i have to walk up and down. What is regularly for you? Every 15mins? Every hour? Every day? It is so stupid what you are telling that my brain stops to work.

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Pros: "The crew are amazing! Attentive and friendly."

Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."
Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight."
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: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"

Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bag was lost"
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: "Nice seats, comfortable."
Cons: "Again, no aisle seat for SkyTeam Gold member. Also, my baggage was lost. First bag arrived a day late, second after I had left Billund and it was six days before the bag with my clothes reached me. I was told I will have 100 euro credit for clothing, but in the winter and for 6 days, this was not even close to the amount I needed for clothing and necessities, to have my time here."
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: "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: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."
Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"
Pros: "Staff at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."
Cons: "Elbow room is a little bit awkward and I didn't get to sit next to my fiance WE will still definitely recommend KLM though!"
Pros: "Easy airport business"
Pros: "The crew were really helpful since I am a short person in putting my luggage away in the overhead compartment and attentive to everyone's needs. I am a fussy eater and don't really like airplane food but the food was actually really nice. We was given plenty of snacks and drinks in between meals as well. There was plenty of programmes to choose from to keep me entertained."
Cons: "The seats in economy were a little too small for a 12 hour flight"
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "delayed"
Pros: "I ended up getting home with less delay than originally predicted. I guess that's a good thing Also delta customer service was super polite and trying to help when I called"
Cons: "Delay again... seems to be pretty frequent on KLM flights at least on the ones I flew with in the past 4 years... this time it was 3hours wait due to a technical issue... no alternative flight option and we ended up getting a very old plane as a replacement. In addition people at info terminals are disorganized and not kind at all.."
Cons: "sardines!"
