Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "yes. great travel and crew"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
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: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
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: "The crew was polite and professional"
Cons: "The food was disgusting The plane is dirty The bags are treated badly"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Everything !!!"
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: "They printed all 3 of my boarding passes for my connecting flights when I first checked in, made me worry about less"
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: "Liked everything."
Cons: "Nothing was wrong but excess bagage fee is high"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Pros: "The flight attendents were chilled. Very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "The food is much tastier in business class. Used to be better in economy, but that has changed."
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: "The food was very good, I liked vegetarian options and my stomach doesn't hurt after the plane food as usual. I like the bathrooms clean and nice smelling soap. The crew was very attentive and eager to please their guest but consistent and insisting on the safety rules (belts buckled up and seats in upright position)"
Cons: "There wasn't many good options for entertainment. Only a couple new movies although I liked the TED talks. Also I liked the plane but I wish there were some foot steps and more comfortable head support on the seats. I didn't like also strange option for Golden members in economy seats to be able to "order" food before regular people. There were only 3 options and everyone had the same choice. So basically all that crew does is just asking which course gold members want an hour before serving. It seemed silly with no actual benefit."
Pros: "Very courteous!"
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: "Requested Asian vegetarian mean but available was non vegetarian. Led screen did not working."
Pros: "Its like traveling in the old days when flight attendants were nice, good looking and absolutely helpful. Bravo! Planes are new and on time."
Pros: "It was something unexpected"
Pros: "It was a long flight from US but was comfortable. Staff was courteous."

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"

Pros: "Nice flight attendants, frequent fluid services."
Cons: "There was no Wifi in the plane."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "The airline did not give me 2 seats next to each other like I had booked more than 6 months prior to the trip. They refused to give my friend and I the 2 seats I had iriginally paid for and booked so we were stuck in the very last row of the entire plane with no reclining seats and terrible service for over 13 hours . Completely awful and really disappointing"
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Pros: "New planes, Excellent Service"
Cons: "Meals could have been better"
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"
Pros: "all the crew they were awesome it's my favorite airline QR⛤⛥⛦⛤⛥⛦⛤"
Cons: "I like every things"
Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. Their customer care is second to none. The food is excellent and i ate throughout my flight."
Cons: "The comfort was a bit below my expectations. Sitting on the seats along the isle was uncomfortable as they are closely placed. There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."
Pros: "The service on this flight was not very good. We almost missed our flight whilst waiting for a wheelchair for mother. She had to finally walk to the boarding gate because the wheelchair we had requested did not come."
Pros: "Service was excellent and food was all right. I do not eat meat or dairy but there was still some food for me on this flight."
Cons: "No complaints whatsoever."
Cons: "They didnt let me sit with my family and my seats were changed twice after i was checked in without notifying me. I have anxiety issues and it was really hard"
Pros: "Social distancing first .... the food is not good second .... the ticket prices are high for such a service"
Cons: "Social distancing first .... the food is not good second .... the ticket prices are high for such a service"
Cons: "While boarding the flight from Dubai to Houston, no one announced about family boarding. About a quarter of the flight had boarded before we decided to get in the line ourselves, and they took us in without any questions. It would have been better if an announcement for family boarding was made. The Dubai to Houston crew could have been more friendly and welcoming."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"
Cons: "Toilets to be checked for cleanliness more frequently."
Pros: "Because i changed to business class, it was a different experience. Comfort, convenience, good service."
Cons: "All went well."
Pros: "The entertainment is very good and it's a smooth ride."
Cons: "Sometimes the crew could come across as brass and disappear for long periods. Also, how do you ever tell the person next to you, who's bigger than you, to try not to bump you every time they move. Definitely made for a not very comfortable flight."
Pros: "Today amazingly the service was too good, the hostesses were coming forward and asking if we needed something and making the journey comfortable."
Cons: "Was nicr"
Cons: "The PA system can be deafining when it interrupted the music. Overall it is just another cattle class now."
Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Lots of new movies"
Cons: "Flight was 1 hr delay and we missed our connection flight. That was the most frustrating from the trip. Crew and aircraft was okay nothing special like I expected."
Pros: "Crew were rude and kept ignoring me"
Cons: "Crew member needs to be more friendly and accommodate when things go wrong"
Cons: "Flight lest 2 hours late. Didn’t have my choice of meal. Cabin crew very inattentive. Worst flight ever with Emirates in business class"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I wished I was in business class..."
Pros: "Great service and attitudes by staff."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "South African airlines allowed me to reserve a seat. But Emirates didn't have it in the system when I checked in."

Pros: "I love everything about Emirates."
Pros: "Nice flight sttendents"
Cons: "Seats too small"
Pros: "Efficient and good actually good for airline food"
Cons: "Electronic equipment a bit out dated and below standard"
Cons: "With more focus on menat and India what used to be a good airline is slowly turning to cattle carrier."
Pros: "I definitely love Emirates' use of the A380 as it is more spacious and therefore offers a more comfortable ride. It also helps that their cabin crew were accommodating and the services offered onboard were good."
Cons: "About 30 of us waitined about 20 minutes for the bus to transfer from plane to terminal . I only had 35 minutes to get to my gate for my transfer to Glasgow . No chance for anything to eat . Not happy ."
Pros: "Loved the leg room, very friendly staff, the cabin was a nice temperature."
Cons: "Based on this flight alone, I have no complaints. Looking forward to flying with Emirates again."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."
Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Some customers were allowed to drink to excess. Staff lacked the discipline to say no. Cabin staff showed clear bias to some customers. They chose to chat with passengers and neglected their duties. Little clusters of drinkers gathered in non seat areas away from their seats causing noise. Staff did not challenge this. Female staff too busy giggling with drunk men"
Pros: "Custom meal. Avml."
Cons: "Not very tasty."
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Pros: "Plenty of room even in economy. Good food for a plane. Very friendly"
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable, plenty of legroom, good entertainment options"
Cons: "Food service was chaotic, delayed. For the main meal, the hot entree came about 20 mins after we received the tray with the rest of the food. Some snacks advertised were not served at all."
Pros: "I appreciate that staff disrupts passengers as least as possible, and is generally helpful."
Cons: "Food was better on the way to Dubai/Kochi but definitely not bad."
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, wide space between raws, smooth takeoff and landing, friendly Crew, good food, crew offered great service, from time to time offer drink and appetizers. We have come such a long distance comfort and fun."
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "check-in process was efficient"
Cons: "food should be better quality"
Pros: "The seats were good, more reclining than Etihad, Luftansa and United airlines and a good leg space, although I'm 5'4. Food was good and plentiful."
Cons: "Cleaniness was really bad. There was a puddle of water in the washroom and even after informing the crew twice noone cleaned it."
Pros: "Good choice of international movies in entertainment"
Cons: "Quality of meals can be improved"
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Pros: "plain was big and clean entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "they lost 2 pieces of my luggage one of them was a wheelchair and there was a delay in takeoff"
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Cons: "Us passengers are obviously an inconvenience to the crew"
Pros: "Good space"
Cons: "It's unfortunate that when you order a special meal you dont get your drinks until after you have eaten your meal. and if you end up waiting then you end up having a cold meal. It would be great if this could be changed"
Pros: "I was siting by an exit door, and it was plenty of room for my long legs."
Cons: "Nothing not to like."
Pros: "The airline is top notch and treated you great like it should be."
Cons: "The sears where a little tight but not bad and the movie options were ok not great."
Pros: "Crew was great, seating comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic"

Cons: "seat comfort"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "2 hour delay and 3 crying babies on a red eye."
Cons: "The boarding organize by group could improve the process"
Cons: "The connection time was too long"
Cons: "Swiss does not know how to handle their own problems and hurt passengers in the process."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and very good. They served the evening meal very promptly. They could have made another trash run prior to everyone trying to sleep for the night flight."
Cons: "The coach seats are narrower than any I have encountered and they are very close to the rows in front and behind. Not comfortable at all."
Pros: "Paid in advance 45.00 a seat to reserve! Otherwise they assign at Check-in! Still ended up with a standard not premium seats in center. I chose 2 side seats online but plane must have changed. Literally could not move. My travel partner ended up spilling wine on himself primarily due to this and 1/2 size drop down trays. Call button brought no help , had to get up and go retrieve steward in back myself!"
Cons: "Comfortability , mediocre service."
Pros: "On time. Friendly employees. No issues at all."
Pros: "Everything was good. From the service to the food."
Pros: "The food wasn’t bad"
Cons: "Business seats suck"
Cons: "I arrived on Thursday, today is saturday and I am still without my luggage."
Pros: "Abosolutely nothing i paid extra for the good reviews i found online but the service was so poor i am disapoi ted i paid that nuch extra for a terrible experience"
Cons: "Entertainment didnt work for the entire trajectory I requested assistance and was ignored every time I requested a vegan meal and was not provided one Boarding was long and disorganized Bathrooms were so dirty, we had not taken off and the barthrooms smelled terrible"
Cons: "Mackenzie Gray/ My flight was cancelled due to bad weather conditions unfortunately. I'm upset that I never received my initinerary for my substitute flight! I tried online and calling the # that was provided no results. I managed to get thru to someone and they told me they would send the info to my email but they never did."
Pros: "Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and the cabin was clean and comfortable. My flight from jfk to Geneva (then Zurich) was cancelled due to weather in Geneva (Swiss 23) so I got upgraded to a delta flight to Brussels then to Zurich Comfort+ !!! Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight from Zurich to Johannesburg: Swiss 288 (airbus a340-300) Sat in the last row of the Swiss air flight, economy, which was okay but our whole row video enternatinment system didn’t work. You’d pick a movie and it wouldn’t play. The games, camera and flight status animation all worked but not the movies. Air hostess tried resetting , still nothing. But it was a great opportunity to have a lovely conversation with my new German Friend Barbara and read my book! More lactose intolerant alternatives for breakfast which had much (cheese, yogurt, croissant) Other than those two , excellent flight. Thank you Swiss!"
Pros: "The hospitality & staff were impeccable."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I ordered a kosher meal and did not get it. The seats are very uncofmfortable. When the one in front puts their seat back it goes almost in to the face of the one behind."
Pros: "Prompt and business like"
Cons: "As a business passenger I was told to go to the Avianca lounge this lounge is not Swiss standards the man sitting next to me was in a t shirt and swim shorts I started flying all over since 1952 most in the back so sorry to see such relaxed protocols"
Cons: "My seat did not recline and my tv did not work"
Cons: "Leg room."
Pros: "The flight attendants were attentive, food delicious, movie selection great also."
Cons: "I flew from Miami to Zurich, Zurich to France, France to Zurich, and Zurich to Miami within the span of a week and they were all at least 30 minutes late. BUT flight attendants came by with water while we were seated and offered chocolate, which I really liked. It wasn't the worst thing for me, but I can see how it's annoying."
Pros: "Food was decent and flight crew friendly."
Cons: "Very bright light in hallway stayed on for entire red eye making it impossible to sleep."
Pros: "Nothing because the airplane seats were terribly uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Our of the 4 females I interacted with only Miishiie was helpful. The movies are a good selection. They were on time."
Cons: "I'm 6'2 and black. I asked if I could pay to upgrade to business class after viewing coach. They lied and said it was full when I could see empty seats. They bumped up a white female for free 3 hours later."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Old business class, old enterior, cabin too hot, seat uncomfortable due to permanent deflation of cushion."
Pros: "Food usually was very bad on SWISS flights' econ class, this was surprisingly better (just better, not good). Staff were professional and polite though they spoke very loud even when most people around were asleep."
Cons: "At check-in counters, staff managing the queues did not speak English at all, same thing at the security check queue, only Spanish speaking. There should be some clearer instructions of how and where to queue at boarding. Everyone just wanted to cut queue."
Pros: "Great customer service."
Cons: "Breakfast was a strawberry yogurt, orange juice and a croissant. Sugar free options ie. Eggs, rye or whole grain bread are a few examples of sugar free breakfast items that could be provided."
Pros: "everything, the crew, the journey, the food and the entertainment as well"
Cons: "The seats were too small. No room at all!! Could not rest bcause the passenger behind me was kicking the seat the whole trip. Very very disappointed We also paid money to reserve our seats but then checking in they gave us other seats. This is not how you do business."
Pros: "Excellent flight staff and better than average airplane food."
Cons: "If one is over child height and the uncaring person in front of you slams their seat into full recline, one will be miserable on steroids. Swiss Air will not correct the small free space capacity (both pitch and width) most assuredly. Thus, I now fully appreciate why fellow travelers embrace airplane knee protectors. "Don't leave home without them," especially on Swiss Air (emphasis added) !"
Cons: "Headsets did not work"
Cons: "An hour late, not Swiss fault but Captain continued to broadcast 5-10 minute delays. Just say it's going to be an hour, then we can all turn our phones back on and go to the lavatory."
Cons: "The service was terrible.. I asked fora napkin and the stewardess got mad at me. Dinner wasn't good and the breakfast was horrible. Everything cramped in a little box. One cup of coffee with one sugar and one cream. Seats were very tight,no room to move. I have always used Swiss but this was such a bad experience, I will reconsider for next time. I think I paid too much Money for what I got! Heidi M Krakoski"
Pros: "Entertainment was great. Staff and food was good as well"
Cons: "No room for legs"
Pros: "Everything was great while aboard!"
Cons: "I wished to upgrade to business for aditonal $1000 which resulted in a 15 wait . There was only one person allowed to do that and she was obviously owerwhalmed. I got a smile out of her eventually but the whole process seemed wrong considering the amount of money i spent on that ticket:( Wish whomever I got to first at the counter were able to make the change and spare me the walking around and waiting."
Pros: "Service-first class! The hosts did their best to keep me comfortable after my operation. My TV system did not work at all and there was no sound. This was not addressed. The directions were not clear on the control machine. It did not say to keep pressing start after each activity The flight was ice cold during the entire journey. I was told that if the pilot put on a little heat the others would complain."
Cons: "Food was the worst I've had on a European flight. I ordered special food that had n0 preservatives because of my stomach ailment. I got Molly's special pre packed horrible food all through the flight filled with preservatives and prepackaged. I therefore didn't eat anything. They kept giving me kosher food on top of it . That was worse. I did not order kosher food! So on my entire flight, I ate nothing. The hostess finally found a left over but it was horrible as well. A tiny salad with plain head lettuce, not like the Lufthasa food. This continued into breakfast. Molly food was unhealthy and inedible. I ate one piece of packaged cheese for the entire journey."
Pros: "I request tow time for Hindu vegi 1st when I booked and 2nd one day befor my departure with costumer service and they confirm because last tme i flue in outher airline and i had same problem and i hard good things about Swiss air but I was very unhappy and dicipoint in my flight they told me they didn't have eany information for my special .request For my bussness i fly two times a year to India next time lam not suor I will fly with Swiss air"
Pros: "The food and the service"
Pros: "the food was good and i like not having to deal with private screening from tablets."
Cons: "The space between rows are uncomfortably narrow (and I am a short person). It also does not help when the attendants would not want to disturb a sleeping but have no problem allowing us to eat off a tray with our forehead touching the back of the seat in front. This happened to me on the entire journey on Swiss from Miami to Zurich to Cape Town. It is almost a health hazard not being able to move and forget about trying to even use a laptop because when the person in front recline her seat, you have no room to even type (and my laptop was only a 13 inch Mac.) I am a million miler on United and this is one of the most miserable flights that I have taken. I also don't like the fact that we cannot get seat assignments until 23 hours before departure- not even for preferred travelers."
Cons: "On 4/23/2016 I missed connecting flight from Zurich to Zagreb because Miami - Zirich flight delay and horribly slow security in Zurich. To make the issue worse "somebody" (???) automatically deleted ny return ticket portion."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Few seats in boarding area"
Cons: "Boarding was slightly confusing. Calling groups to board was not so organized"
Cons: "my flight was canceled in the last minute,it transferred true turkey where i didn't want to go to for security reasons and landing time issues, i had a chance to buy that ticket for cheaper and get there on time to the turkey airway flight and not come 10 hours early and land at a time i'm expecting I expect compensation for both the price ticket difference as well as for my time wasted, or I will not consider using your airline in the future."
Pros: "Everything from the lady in the counter to the Flight attendant, everything is meticulously thought, even the chocolate in the end :)"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Two agents at the gate were not enough to handle 300 passengers. Total lack of compassion and poor comunications. Ended up calling Swiss reservation line and after 90 minutes on the phone was confirmed on LH.

Even though the floght was delayed 3-4 times For a total of 2 hours! We were very upset since we have a wedding celebration scheduled and the airline showed no flexibility even in situations where the floght was delayed! They charged alot of mone to rebook for the next day"
Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"
Cons: "second leg (Istanbul to Johannesburg) crew were rude!!!"

In this devastating time, that hepince in Florida! ...It's so shallow, not fair and not professional action, ether NOT RIGHT! !!....."

Cons: "The customer service experience along with the unorganized procedure for a delayed flight."
Cons: "My flight tonight (0078) from MIA to Istanbul was delayed by over 5 hours. I am traveling with an infant and it has been IMPOSSIBLE to get anyone to help us. Finally, someone at the airport helped in re-booking our flights but I have yet to have anyone give me an answer regarding compensation! In addition, we are traveling with an infant which isn't easy but we had the bassinet seat on our original flight. Now it's sold out for the flight tomorrow and no one will assist in trying to help get us better seats. I understand things are out of your companies control but being in an airport with an 18-month baby isn't easy and no one in this company has made this crazy travel schedule easier. I would like someone to call me back or email me with something that could maybe be done to help us! No one at the call center will help!"
Pros: "Good service, nice plane, comfortable"
Cons: "Took forever to clear out trays after meal. Istanbul airport was not nice, bathrooms wee disgusting and little to no air conditioning in airport"
Pros: "I know it wasn't Turkish Airlines fault, but I booked through Kayak who went through Web jet for the tickets. Webjet cancelled our tickets and never notified me. They never contacted me back, and I almost had to book another ticket."
Cons: "Sears to close too tight"
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "They had rotten food and didn't even tell us when serving would begin. Also they lost our luggage in spite of having our tag #. How does an airline not put a tag on a bag and give a bagage tag to a customer. ?? And after going on a cruise with one Carry on and everything Lost they don't even give us an allowance or a normal kit for toiletries and no one answers our questions. All the calls go to the call center that has no idea about how to track a bag. There are no managers to help and the customer service stinks"
Pros: "For 11 hours trip - Crew for the THY was excellent They made the trip better and efficient Kudos to THY crew"
Cons: "Nothing everything was great"
Pros: "We arrived at the desk and no staff or customers were there. Turns out they don't fly on Thursdays. What? So we rebooked and will fly out tonight. Overall, a huge inconvenience for my family waiting for us overseas. Plus we had to book a place to stay in Miami for the next 24 hours. Whew!"
Pros: "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: "The flight crew on my side was great!"
Cons: "There was one stewardist not on my row but on another row that I witnessed getting very frustrated and was rude with a few customers. It was uncomfortable to watch her be that way. I'm glad it wasn't me but I feel bad for her and the others."
Pros: "The flight attendents were very nice & service was good."
Cons: "The seats are cramped in economy, so if you are tall it's uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Great Planes. Good service o the air."
Cons: "Their service on ground needs a lot of work. From luggage check in to attitude of the staff is horrible. Specially in Turkey the service is so frightening that you hope you have your luggage and no need to go to find help. If you need help you are on your own. No one will take responsibility and help you."
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."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Cons: "I made request by the phone, for service animal. They told me to call back after 24h!!! After 5 days of waiting, more than 50 calls to customer "support " that barely speak English, I was forced to go to "Airport " to chek what is the problem with my request. Over there they helped me, and everything was fine after that. But this is RIDICULOUS, that I need to go to f... airport to solv the problem. Never ever turkish!!!!!!"
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 4.5 hours. We got a few drinks and snacks while waiting. No real information was provided and the flight was delayed by one hour at a time. Kids were tired and hungry. Crew did not help. After a few hours we got some blankets. We had to sleep on the airport's floor. We had to buy food. We did not know what will happen with our connection flights that most of the passengers missed because of the delay. This was a nightmare!"
Pros: "Well, let's see, I missed my flight with THY because of a connecting flight with American Airlines, and instead of helping me, they wanted to charge me $3,000 to catch the next flight out. They said it didn't matter who's fault it was. So my entire trip got cancelled. So I can't rate the flight, but unless you can guarantee you won't miss the flight, I would not recommend taking the risk of losing all your money and ruining your trip."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines has the best service in the industry, being in a stressful job and dealing with people, the attendants do an excellent job trying to cater to passengers needs to make their trip joyful and easy. 5 star service. I'd prefer them over any other company whenever possible."
Pros: "Decent food. Good service. Great media access for international flights."
Cons: "Nothing to knock down"
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment in flight movies, food service was good and the seats were fairly comfortable. I wasn't sure what to expect from the airline, I'd never heard anyone who flew with them before but it was a pretty good experience especially being my first trip to Europe"
Cons: "Took a while to board the plane a lot of standing around it seemed for no reason"
Pros: "The food and service was outstanding. The pillows and blanket provided were excellent in Economy."
Cons: "Second trip to/from Europe on Turkish Airlines. Overall the flight was quite good and the food, service, and entertainment was excellent. However, the comfort level was the worst. This was mainly because the cabin crew kept the temperature of the plane almost like a sauna. Sweating, opened shirt, rolled up the sleeves, impossible to get comfortable or get any sleep!! The plane just seemed to get hotter and hotter! This was on all four segments across and back! The local flights seemed to be a bit better, and while not as cool as I personally like, they were acceptable. For clarification I am a premier flyer with star alliance, primarily United, and fly close to 100,000 miles per year. To date I have received NO mileage credit for any Turkish Airline flight!"
Pros: "Everything was great this was the greatest flight I took. I travel a lot. The service was 100 ten % perfect. Thanks to everyone for a great service."
Cons: "I don't think anyone could say they didn't like something about the flight or service."
Pros: "DIRECT FLIGHT TO ISTANBUL FROM MIAMI. UNFORTUNATELY I WAS IN A RUSH TO REACH TURKEY FOR A MEETING. USUALLY I PREFER TO GO THRU ROME WITH A FEW DAYS LAY OVER SO THAT I CAN HAVE BETTER SERVICE, FOOD AND PAMPERED TREATMENT AS BUSINESS CLASS SERVICE SHOULD BE. WHO CHOSE THEM TO BE THE "BEST AIRLINE IN EUROPE"?? AS THY CLAIM TO BE!! BLIND PEOPLE??"
Cons: "DAMAGED MY LUGGAGE EXTENSIVELY, THIS IS THE THIRD TIME BY THE WAY), KEEPS REFERRING ME TO AN INSURANCE CO WITH AN E MAIL ADDRESS THAT DOES NOT RESPOND, NO TELEPHONE NUMBER BY THE WAY IS FURNISHED EVEN THOUGH I HAD ASKED FOR, REPEATEDLY. -HAD TO WAIT TO PAY FOR BUSINESS UPGRADE SINCE THERE WAS ONLY ONE PERSON TRYING TO COLLECT OVERWEIGHT LUGGAGE PAYMENTS AS WELL AS UPGRADE PAYMENTS, WHILE KEEPING ME IN LINE FOR 45 MINUTES FOR A BIZ CLASS UPGRADE. AFTER I PROTESTED, A TURKISH LADY SUPERVISOR SMIRKINGLY SAID THAT I HAD TO WAIT IN LINE SINCE THERE IS ONLY ONE PERSON SERVICING! GO FIGURE!. VERY TURKISH APPROACH I WOULD SAY. PASS THE BUCKET.. -NO CONCERN FOR BUSINESS CLASS SERVICE. PLEASE TELL THEM TO GO AND TRAVEL IN ALITALIA, SWISSAIR, UNITED, DELTA, VIRGIN (THE BEST) ,BUSINESS CLASS AND SEE HOW THEY PAMPER THEIR CUSTOMERS FROM CHECK IN, TO GREAT AND AMPLE GOOD FOOD AND CONTINUOUS SERVICE. -UNLIKE THY STALE, FROZEN FOOD. BAD BREAKFAST, NO AMPLE CHESE SELECTION (ONE SLICE WHITE CHESE ONLY), OVER COOKED BAD BURNED TASTING TEA. -SERVICE: THE MALE STEWARD DROPPED SALAD ON THE NEXT SEAT AND IT STAYED THERE FOR 5 HOURS. PICKED UP BY A FEMALE STEWARDESS AS WE ARE LANDING. IF THEY WISH TO USE MORE MALES ON BOARD THEY SHOULD AT LEAST TRAIN THEM WELL. I HAD TO WAIVE AT 3 DIFFERENT MALE STEWARDS AND THEY ALL PASSED BY NOT ACKNOWLEDGING AND I WAS SITTING ON THE FIRST ROW AISLE! THEY ARE RUDE, UNCARING, SHODDY SERVICE PEOPLE.."
Pros: "Very efficient crew but not very nice."

Cons: "There is not free wifi!"
Pros: "I did enjoy all aspects crew, food ,"
Cons: "Bathrooms need to be cleaned more regularly."
Pros: "It was amazing in the airline so good, my next fly to my final destination was on the next day so Turkish airline provided free hotel for the night so I won't have to stay in the airport sleeping. Best airline"
Pros: "Yes, turned out perfect"
Cons: "Awesome accomodations, delta really cares about your needs. Thank you!"
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Pros: "The boarding was great and moved very well. The crew super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "More information on how to use the complimentary Wifi in the cabin. I had the app and it helped me but it’s not immediately in front of you so the passenger can decide. You guys offer WiFi in packages and most of the other airlines do not."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment options were great. Aircraft was new. Boarding was smooth. On time even though we left 30 min late."
Cons: "The internet was hard to connect to and the gogo options aren’t totally clear."
Pros: "The crew is always smiling and ready to help you and I really like that."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and the crew was courteous."
Pros: "I loved being upgraded to first class and the crew was so attentive."
Cons: "Nothing, glad this was a better experience than the trip to Miami."
Pros: "Very pleasant crew. Very helpful And always smiling"
Pros: "I fly a lot, and I am very impressed with the level of consistency that Delta has offered the last couple of months. This flight didn’t disappoint. The crew was particularly friendly"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of-10/10"
Pros: "The Airbus was so futuristic. If you can make it more futuristic, even better."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to put my bag under when there was plenty of room overhead."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and we missed our connection. Wondering why all the shuttles were parked and unavailable when you knew there were connection s that were tight."
Pros: "Amazing entertainment display and the boarding process is smooth."
Pros: "Movies were good, once in flight it was a smooth ride"
Cons: "Communicate better during the delay"
Pros: "Everything and everyone was very nice and helpful My son has a cognitive disability and he flew by his self And they helped him find his seat and treated him with respect."
Cons: "While trying to get a gate pass to pick up our son from the gate Delta service makes it very hard to know where to go and get the pass and then they only had one person working at ticket assist. Totally unacceptable. Many managers walking around but no one actually helping."
Pros: "Can’t do anything about bad weather-we got through despite a weather delay. Crew was terrific."
Cons: "Terrible flight ? Captain lied to to us and kept saying two more minutes 5 more minutes , etc Stuck for 4 hours . Plane had a problem and captain said it was glued and that was suppose to be like that"
Pros: "Arrived on time and smooth flight though it was completely full"
Cons: "Nothing. Every thing was great"
Cons: "They charged me $646 for the flight. And we departed 40 min later. I arrived late to my work. They gave me seat in the back of the plane. Horrible"
Pros: "Staff are adept at dealing with these issues but it is a systemic problem."
Cons: "Rather than pay luggage fees, people are bringing on their luggage and the flight ALWAYS runs out of space. Suitcases are being moved around right at people heads and more than once I've been hit and seen other people be hit in the head by a suitcase. Getting luggage in place used to be a simple and minor issue, now it occupies much of the time, energy, and attention of the cabin crew as well as the gate crew. I realize this is making money for Delta but the cost is being paid by people being hit in the head with luggage and the crew's unavailability to deal with other issues."
Pros: "Clean plane, quick turnaround"
Cons: "Food was awful. Didn't get my checked luggage in Manila upon arrival, was traced and left in New York JFK. Don't know who messed up with my luggage if Delta connection or China airlines."
Pros: "Not too bad once we got on the plane"
Cons: "They make up this lame excuse about a slight delay on the plane arriving and having no flight attendants to get on the plane on time. This delayed our flight by two hours. They need to staff their flights !"
Pros: "Cody was such a great flight attendant. We weren’t seated with our kids and he helped us switch seats. He was so help and just sincerely nice. Really great person to represent your brand."
Cons: "By mistake I booked my ticket for the wrong date Called to change it, wait time was over 2hrs went to the delta app and it cost me $200 to do it. Get to airport and ask for an up grade not possible but if I paid $200 when rebooking the flight I could have gotten one. Snacks were horrible and I have a delta card and was charged $29 to get in plus a charge for my extra suitcase. It’s ridiculous given the amount of money I spend on m card on the monthly basis. Very disappointing"
Pros: "short flight not much to say all was smooth crew was efficent"
Cons: "not a delta thing but passengers drag all these pieces of luggage on making boarding longer clogging up aisles ect. gate agents need to be more strict with people past the allowed limit"
Pros: "They gave me extra pretzels and 2 cans of soda"
Cons: "The seats were awful.. Miniscule"
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."
Pros: "Very professional cabin crew"
Pros: "I always love flying on Delta! The service is always excellent. The crew is always nice and attentive!"
Pros: "Cheking was easy. Service was excellent. Flight was on time and got to New York 20 mins before time"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "This flight was cramped. Not enough stretching room. Hard seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Delta graciously rebooked us on a different flight."
Cons: "Late delayed notification after we reached airport and kept delaying for several hours"
Pros: "We were traveling with a 4 month old lap infant, and the crew went out of their way to warm bottles and be friendly in general. The plane was clean and comfortable, and on this leg of our trip the entertainment system actually worked!"
Cons: "The only bad things were those that were totally out of Delta's control: weather delays and absolutely nasty and rude TSA agents who seemed to understand neither the concept of their Pre-Check system (no dedicated lines and no priority) nor the fun of traveling with an infant."
Pros: "I am not one who enjoys flying. I don't think there ever will be a time that I enjoy flying. However, the pilot, stewards, and all other workers on delta were very nice."
Cons: "I don't like flying so there really wasn't anything I liked."
Pros: "Loved the new aircrafts, the flight attendants were friendly and attentive. We landed 40 mins earlier than expected, the captain really sped the whole way and I didn't feel a thing!! The landing didn't even feel as though we were speeding...one of the best flights I've ever had (Jessica England) thank you!"
Cons: "Food options, early morning flights I get you're not going to have real food, but can there be an option to purchase a bagel with cream cheese or croissant, something other than a snack box. I understand the flight is under 3 hours so certain foods aren't available but Delta you upgraded everything else. I enjoy the Tapas box for those that are vegan, kosher, gluten free, etc....PS-the bathrooms are smaller"
Pros: "Cabin crew were great. Food selection is good and appreciate the snacks."
Cons: "Wish all seats and electrical outlets. Was forced to check my bag at the gate and DID NOT think it was nessesary. There was plenty of room on the plane. They also didn't allow me to take my medicine out before it was checked. Luckily there were no issues with getting it back."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing"
Cons: "Delta. They just hate their passengers"
Pros: "They had good entertainment for free. There were movies, tv shows, and games."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for 5 hours and the ride was longer than expected."
Cons: "My bag was damaged when I arrived at Orlando."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Always a delay with Delta"
Cons: "I will avoid the airline at all costs"
Cons: "No blanket if you're not 1st class lol. I haven't flew in solo long, idk,i thought they were complimentary lol. & cups of water? What happened to the Shasta's lol."
Pros: "People were nice."
Cons: "I didn't like having my seat assigned at the gate. I booked this flight months ago, but yet somehow I got the very last row of the plan. Which is the noisiest location with the least amount of room. On the flight back they put me in the second to last row, even though there were about 10 seats empty scattered throughout the plan. Made no sense to me."
Cons: "Plane was dirty when boarding and older than usual with a broken intercom speaker above us - squawking volume that rang every time the captain or seatbelt light came on. Staff were loud throughout this evening flight where everyone tried to get some shut eye. NOT kid friendly. overhead bins didn't fit the standard carry on correctly requiring everyone to place them sideways with wasted space and therefore not enough luggage room for everyone, crowding an already fully booked flight. A few more reasons why we'll never fly delta again"
Pros: "The crew were wonderful, efficient, and professional."
Cons: "On this Delta flight operated by Virgin Atlantic one of us was unable to check in or change our seats. You think you are getting Delta but everything must be done through VA. VA bag weights are less than Delta and the seat was incredibly cramped. We both had to sit with our legs bowed to the side as the seat ahead was so close. For nine hours we were cramped and could not sleep due to only be able to squeeze into one position. To get into the seat I put on leg in and then sat on the armrest and then brought my other leg up and then lowered my but into the seat. I am not even 6 feet tall and had this issue. So due to the difficult online check-in and seat selection and to the cramped seats we will never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "Upgraded to first class so had more room, nicer seats. No lines at TSA, had the first gate past security so a short walk. Nice shopping and food choices."
Cons: "No meal served on flight, only drinks and cookies / popcorn. No entertainment at all. You have to provide your own device. There was wifi but not free, it was so slow I couldn't download the entertainment app, so I gave up and slept. No access to Delta lounge with domestic first class WTF?"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and great flight attendants."
Cons: "The boarding. Having to wait for people to place their carry ons."
