Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
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"
Pros: "Plane quite empty so lots of space."
Cons: "Service not very attentive, had to repeatedly ask."

Pros: "Too crowded"
Cons: "One more staff will be better"

Cons: "I was moved from the front to the very back upon checking in at the gate due to "Weight and Balance" issues. I was able to move back to my original seat once in the air, but there was no forewarning of this even with advanced purchased tickets. Just a hassle since this flight was long and all I wanted to do was get some rest."
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."

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."

Cons: "Nothing. Seriously. Tasty food, good movie selection, plenty of legroom, pleasant flight attendants, comfortable seats... good stuff. :)"

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."

Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."

Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Pros: "Last year I flew Lufthansa which was my worst experience flying ever. I thought the new standard was so low I would never fly to Europe again. I had heard KLM was good but I felt this was as good as could be expected actually much better. The food was even good."

Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "I paid a top price for my ticket and expect the advertised amenities to work. Upgrade or replacement for entertainment system."
Cons: "You are almost always late!"
Cons: "KLM staff in the Prague airport were some of the rudest humans I have ever met. So incredibly uncaring and outright mean."
Cons: "Food and one bathroom out of service makes an awful 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: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."

Pros: "quick boarding, responsive Airline stewardess, very polite."
Cons: "temperature control was not good, service was fine, seats were not comfortable. plane need to be cleaner."
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"

Pros: "Staff, service"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Economy was very tight! Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "Much more civilised for the same cost (or less) as the budget carriers. Proper food and drinks included as is the norm with international flights even though it's a very short haul."
Cons: "The stinky guy behind me, but that's not the airline's fault."
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us.The food was also mediocre."
Cons: "They forced me to ceck my trolley because i had a suit with me!!! And the airplane wasn’t even full. Even worst they allowed some pieces of “hand luggage” that were double the maximum allowed size"
Cons: "I not get to go my flight, I couldn't get reimbursement"
Pros: "Perfectly on time, no hassle, seat OK. This is the way I appreciate a flight."

Pros: "The crew was terrific."
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable."
Cons: "My boyfriend and I were required to gate check our carry-on luggage which required us to go through customs in Paris to get to our bag and re-enter security for our connecting international flight. I am unsure why this was the case as other passengers brought the same size luggage. Very upsetting."
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Cons: "Both flights through Detroit were re-routed, our luggage was lost for 4 days."
Cons: "They made me check my carryon rolly which is allowed on every other plane in the world, which meant going all the way back into a chaos of hundreds of people to check in. Because I had a connecting flight to New York in London, the check in caused many problems...and everything inside soaking wet"
Pros: "Had decent room space seats comfortable"
Cons: "My luggage could have arrived for a start"
Cons: "There was no entertainment available."

Cons: "Teenage crew, poor service (not even water brought on request, all "self service" at back of flight, and not being allowed a second drink with dinner), poor language skills (crew not very helpful when 2 hour delay meant I could miss connecting flight, suggesting I "walk fast")."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great. The plane was not so full, so I hope business improves so we can keep it going. Very smooth flight, with good and friendly crew."
Cons: "Plane left more than 40 minutes late with no explanation or apology."
Cons: "Plane left 45 minutes late. No reason given either when waiting or after late boarding. I didn't eat as I tried to sleep byt narrow seats meant being woken constantly by fidgety neighbour. Fortunately the plane made up most of the lost time and I got my next Air France flight. This one was 50 minutes late departing."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant most of the time"
Cons: "Boarding process is total chaos Took 40 mins to.check in at desk , pre ordered for wheelchair Never showed ...total zoo Beds advertised as lie flat bu they are NOT 180 degree flat , legs hang down - bad for circulation"

Pros: "Food and service was good and price was acceptable"
Cons: "Very long route"
Cons: "Crew not only lacked sensibility to understand the purpose of an emotional support dog but kept harassing me about the dog being tied to my seat. At some point a flight attendant even tried to touch my dog, invading my personal space. When the dog rightfully acted defensive trying to protect me, the crew member started threatening me that he would have the dog sent to cargo, the last thing a person with an emotional support pet wants to hear. Extreme lack of professionalism."
Cons: "Took very long from landing/ arrival until baggage could be collected. Priority luggage came out last!"
Pros: "Comfort, food and service are better than average."
Cons: "When stewardess opened overhead locker, something fell on my head."

Cons: "The 3 hours delay"
Pros: "The food, the service and everything else is fine, quite good."
Cons: "However, our baggages were 1 day late. Your missing baggages would deliver to you 1 day later, for some maybe 2 days later...Quite a few people said that it's been always like this with air Aeroflot if there is a transfer flight."

Pros: "Cheap aircraft, not even headsets"
Cons: "Dirty aircraft, I expect more when I pay a lot"
Cons: "The flight arrived late with no clear explanation as to why. Then there was no EU queue at immigration, so more time wasted."

Complimentary wine with meal was also quite good. Entertainment system was first rate with plenty of options for TV. movies, music, games, etc..."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle two seats in the center of the 777 left me stuck for most of the flight. Got up only once. Wife's feet and ankles were swollen by the end of the flight. Not enough legroom to move much during the flight and not enough aisle space to get around with the plane so full. Have made flights twice as long on the 747 and were able to get up and walk."
Cons: "Delay over an hour"
Cons: "Poor communication. Did not know was airfrance the booking was completed with Austria airline. In the ticket was not the information. Also, airfrance could not find me in their systems I was late to board the plane. Terrible messy and confusing time for me."
Pros: "Boeing 777 had a lot of space. Good legroom. Timely departure and arrival, hassle free, safe trip all the way. Enjoyed the red wine; very delicious!"

Cons: "The entertainment system was hilarious."
Cons: "Two hours late..."
Pros: "Nothing except that it got me safely to my destination"
Cons: "Food was terrible and there was a long human hair in my beef. Entertainment was one thing only, and it was in Hebrew with Hebrew subtitles. Bathroom was out of TP, not very clean. Crew was abrupt and service was very limited, with one having to walk to the galley for coffee or tea after the meal."
Pros: "Clean airport and airline. I was on the new Dreamliner. Book business you don’t want to be in the back."
Cons: "For obvious reasons security is tight. However, they do not warn you sufficiently about the screening and security process. It took 2 hours alone to get through security and it was a light crowd. I can only imagine if it was packed or during major EU or Israeli holiday. They try to move people fast but security folks are all very young so they require a lot of supervision and need oversight so they stop and go for questions with trained team members."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Had a snack at takeoff and a meal only before mandarins. We’re hungry for most of the flight. Not a good experience"
Pros: "From Newark to Tel Aviv all good."
Cons: "On the way back today. My dad was scheduled to arrive in EWR but he arrived at JFK. We were waiting for him in newark. It was very stressful and frustrating because myDad doesn't understand English so he never knew of the change. I never received an email alert letting me know if the change of airport or the 1hr delay they had. I am really upset with all this. We are still on our way To JFK in this insane traffic."
Pros: "nice helpful crew."
Cons: "long line in security check. entertainment didn't work the whole flight. I didn't like that I booked the flight via Kayak but didn't get points at ElAl club. I had to call ElAl and ask them to give me the points for this travel..."

Pros: "The crew was really nice and helpful"

Cons: "I am nearly 2 meters tall and El Al, unlike Lufthansa and other European carriers, accommodate, not punish me for being tall."
Pros: "Comfortable seat however it didn't recline as it was in front of emergency exit row"
Cons: "Above, plus my light was outso I couldn't read and I had brought books and work to do! Also my TV screen wasn't functionalso I also couldn't watch anything g AND my headset, only one earlier e worked!!"
Pros: "Security is top notch. The ones questioning you never take their eyes off of you. They are expertly trained to find terrorists. They do what they have to to keep you safe. They board early in order to leave on time. Staff was very attentive."
Cons: "The handle on my aisle is supposed to lift out, but had been damaged, and I could not lift it. Somebody before me yanked out the TV controller from it's wire and it was not fixed.."
Cons: "My seat was kind of broken wasn't comfortable"
Cons: "Don't even know where to start. What can you say when you spend $1500 on a flight that should cost half as much to take off late, land late, have a cruddy run down plane with subhuman amount of leg room, shockingly abysmal screens (the old kind that don't let you choose your entertainment no less) less than mediocre food... I don't expect much flying economy, my expectations are in check. This flight (and my elal flight before it which was delayed 5 hours with no explanation) was just outrageously bad."
Cons: "Plane interior"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The entertainment system was extremely outdated."
Pros: "new entertainment system was nice"
Cons: "flight was late to arrive, and late to take off, plane was full and crowded. no leg room. food was rather poor"
Pros: "the flight was empty so there was plenty of room to stretch out"
Cons: "the entertainment system is ancient and terrible. small screen with extremely low resolution and no entertainment on demand. All of this for a twelve hour flight."
Pros: "ease and convenience of travelling between Israel and Boston."
Cons: "Old, very, very uncomfortable, worn out seats. The seats need to be replaced."
Pros: "Great flying experience"
Cons: "Fight was canceled - I need a refund"
Pros: "Intra-european seat comfort - better than most Food"
Cons: "Boarding and disembarkation horrible -access on both side by bus."
Pros: "All was good"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Crew friendly Good food Clean plane"
Cons: "Boarding slow, chaotic and late."
Cons: "The cost I was quoted gave no indication of a baggage fee when I booked on Kayak. I have been on honeymoon traveling for 9 months now and this about the 5th time this has happened using kayak. I learned my lesson after all the unexpected bag fees I paid in Asia and now use "view deal" button to make sure there are no hidden charges (the no bag fee included usually appears first and is a different price than the rest). This flight did not appear to have any hidden costs when I booked and I saw not baggage warnings through the process I paid $140 for what should have cost $70 and nearly missed my flight. As Vice President of Marketing for a fortune 500 company, I feel strongly Kayak is making a mistake by allowing these types of misleading deals on their sight. I have no problem paying the fee but dont want it to be a an overpriced surprise at the airport. We still have 3 months left on our trip and Im not sure I will use Kayak anymore. It's unfortunate, because up until now, that's all we've used. Sincerely David Cole (email@example.com)"
Pros: "exit from the airplane when the flight was over was fast."
Cons: "night flight: no blankets, no pillows for all the passengers chairs reclining very small. chairs are really old and uncomfortable food / dinner: will feed it to my dog. entertainment equipment: stuck somewhere about 30-40 years ago. the oldest I ever saw, headset don't work in one side, 90% of the channels has nothing on them: no music, no movie, nothing."
Cons: "Plane left late and arrived late. As a result we missed our connecting flight and, because of the impending typhoon in Hong Kong, had to be rerouted via Auckland on Air New Zealand. As a result it took us an extra 24 hours to get home."
Cons: "El Al is the main airline at TLV airport, yet the line for check-in for them is the worst-organized line i have ever witnessed. They should do what every other airline is doing to improve queues, instead of abandoning passengers to a chaotic process."
Cons: "The flight to London (which I was not asked about) was a disgrace. Elal dumped the entire flight on some lousy charter, which made Easy Jet look like a luxury airline. I will never fly Elal again if I can help it."
Cons: "7 hrs delay. Endless amount of problems, lies by the crew. Malfunctioning aircraft. Horrible. Swiss should end this partnership with elal."
