Cons: "The plane is great but the young gentlemen next to me is 300lb+(my best guest He's at least 6'2" possibly in his teen or early 20s) Don't get me wrong but to sit in coach for 14 hours with him in the middle seat is kind of a nightmare. Half of the way we all went to a bathroom and I don't blame him but the bathroom must be to small to clean up himself for I have to sit with feces smell for the rest of the flight. Imagine that. This is my second leg of this long flight from BKK to NYC. The first leg to dubai is horrible enough but this one top that by far!!!!"

Pros: "Good selection of food"

Pros: "Helpful staff"
Cons: "All power sockets iny row did not work so I asked the crew to plug my phone to charge in business class. My TV screen was loose and my seat was broken and kept reclining in its own. The seat next to me had a broken tray that was falling apart. Overall very disappointed with the quality of the plane with such expensive flights."

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,"

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly, flight was very comfortable with great entertainment options. Attentive staff!"

Pros: "Everything! The plane is the size of a bldg lol! Economy seats were really comfortable, lucked up & sat in an exit row. They feed you, give you plenty to drink in economy! Out flight attendants were superb, especially Vidhi! She was a total sweetheart!"
Cons: "The entertainment gadget was a little loose but it was still usuable & viewable although it would slide down a little."

Pros: "It was much better than first leg from Ft Lauderdale to Dubai, better plane, better service, better food, better entertainment"

Pros: "Food, staff, seats, quality and feel of cabin"
Cons: "The cabin is heavily perfumed. I coughed most of the flight from the various scents. You could tone it down a bit."

Pros: "Food and crew were great"
Cons: "Entertainment was horrible...it was connected for the first 2 hours only then got disconnected for the whole flight duration...I couldn’t watch any movie, tv show, music, live tv, and the crew tried to reset the screen several times with no success, then it worked again in the last hour...I travelled on business class and paid the extra charge for better service"

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 !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great crew, service, food and entertainment."
Cons: "Hard landing"

Pros: "The service of the airline. The food was good."
Cons: "The seats were very small and tight. Most other long haul flights the seats are much more comfortable."

Pros: "Excellent service"

Pros: "Excellent service in flight and nice food"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "I was very comfortable."

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?"

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: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."

Pros: "The service was excellent good legroom for flying economy."

Pros: "Emirates is our usual pick for flying and this time also it was no exception. The crew were friendly, but still couldn't arrange preferred seating because it was during the holiday season. I know this is the section for good comments, but I am very disappointed about the demeanor and the service provided this time."
Cons: "I have called in advance and selected the seats for both inbound and outbound flights. Also, confirmed a wheelchair access. To my surprise, none of them were met according to the commitment. The seats were not the ones that were asked for. I mentioned that there was a medical condition with the leg and my mom would have to get up and move during the flight, but still they allocated seats which are extremely inconvenient to both us and the fellow passengers. We expect better from Emirates!!! I hope they can improve this in the future!"

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: "The best economy seating out there. Emirates still makes you feel like a person even though you are in economy. Unlike other airlines Emirates flight crew treats you very well, they are polite, the food is good and the seating is very comfortable. It makes a 16 hour flight pleasureable. Thank you Emirates!!!"

Cons: "after the origin flight was already 12 hours late, had to wait another 8+ hours at Dubai airport for this connecting flight."

Pros: "Customer service, food, the flight in general was good."
Cons: "I lost TV signal a few times and therefore wasn't able to watch the games I was interested in. But I understand this is beyond your control at times but the whole system would benefit from an upgrade. The touch screen sometimes takes a while to respond so making the process a little tedious."

Pros: "Foods and electronic entertainment"
Cons: "The male flight attendant accidently hit my head without apologize while I was bending down to tight my shoes."

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: "Good service on the plane. They pretty much gave you whatever you asked for. No charge for beverages, etc., even alcohol. The food provided was very good."
Cons: "On the outbound flight, the seat bottom was very hard as if the cushion had deteriorated. My behind was killing me very shortly into the 7+ hour flight and I sat on my neck pillow, which wasn't ideal but helped a little. The seat on the return flight was more comfortable."

Cons: "Flight was delayed causing the connection impossible. Delta provides no way to communicate directly with a human making rebooking impossible. The lack of care destroyed our family reunion."

Pros: "The crew and the quick boarding"
Cons: "There still needs to be more room in the cabin and comfort plus. And not only just for leg room but also arm room"

Cons: "Movies were outdated flying to Amsterdam, coming back was great"

Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Very clean and made sure we were able to sanitize and keep our area safe."

Pros: "Crew was great, check in was fast. Overall great experience."

Cons: "movie selection could have been better."

Pros: "I was fortunately upgraded to 1st class. The flight attendant was adequate. However, did not live up to the level of service I have come to expect."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"

Pros: "I like the comfortable seats and the entertainment feature found on every seat."
Cons: "Not much. Delta is superior"

Pros: "Safe and fast journey."
Cons: "Vegan Options for snacks"

Cons: "Great flight but old regional jet"

Pros: "Pilot explained the flight path and landmarks along the way. Crew was friendly to us and welcomed our baby onboard before many other pax boarded."
Cons: "Seats were narrow and I’m not a big guy. 6’0”. 185."

Cons: "I used 7900 points to upgrade to “comfort” and nothing about it was comfortable. I was squashed between a window and a large man and my tv screen kept flickering on and off. I actually felt like I had less space overall than I would have in a regular seat."

Pros: "Crew were great, on time, helpful, friendly."

Pros: "The seat was very comfortable even as a basic seating and the entertainment options were great."
Cons: "The voice from the pilot was very loud and would be too much if I had my headphones on."

Cons: "Disembarking could be more efficient"

Pros: "Flight attendants thank SkyMiles members by name at some point during the trip, very friendly."

Pros: "The entertainment on the plane was nice. One of my airphones did not work."
Cons: "If the screens were updated and a little easier to touch."

Pros: "Yummy snack! Funny crew member who acknowledged seats in landing position are uncomfortable. Sing songy welcoming voices :)"
Cons: "Aww. The movie I wanted to watch wouldn’t play.."

Cons: "I now know the downside of buying through Kayak, the ticket is non-upgradable even when seats became open and I offered to pay for the upgrade."

Pros: "Great entertainment system."

Pros: "The attention to detail from the crew, and the friendliness"

Pros: "Everything went as planned!"

Cons: "Online check in didn’t work. Called Delta 800# and rep said I needed to wait till I got to airport. Airport rep said I needed to use the KLM flight number, not the Delta number.W"

Pros: "Great experience. Left on time and landed early. Comfortable and great crew"
Cons: "Wish there were more snack options"

Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Pros: "The chargers worked in neither airplane."
Cons: "The chargers worked in neither airplane."

Cons: "It was smelly. Anyone who does not smoke can smell old smoke. Yuk. Also, smells like a neighboring passenger has bowel issues. Ick"

Pros: "Food and service was nice"
Cons: "Very long route to my final destination"

Pros: "The flight was on time. Airport personnel were courteous & efficient. Airplane was clean. Pilot was friendly. A passenger had a peanut allergy so Delta distributed almonds, instead. Nice. Overall, I like Delta."
Cons: "Leg room was just barely adequate. It was a small plane-nothing could be done about that."

Pros: "Almost everything."

Pros: "I don’t know what Delta could have done better on this two leg flight from Albuqueque to Miami via Atlanta . Yes we were in First Class and it was a (groan) 6:05 AM flight which meant that we were probably on time. But Delta’s 737-900 (to Atlanta) was very comfortable, the crew did everything well and the breakfast was quite good. (Make sure you try the quiche). We had the same crew on the next leg to Miam, who were surprised and gave us a warm welcome. There were only snacks in 1st for that short segment, but they were all we wanted."
Cons: "Air turbulence over the Midwest storms."

Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."

Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."

Cons: "I was seated in first class, and due to some catering mix-up, no meal was served. I was given a banana and crackers which was very disappointing since I hadn't eaten in 8 hours and was starving. No on board entertainment whatsoever."

Pros: "Good entertainment options, on-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Had to stow backpack under seat due to full flight. How is this still the norm? Wi-fi not working."

Pros: "Great upgrade program"
Cons: "Slow unloading of luggage"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly."

Pros: "The in flight entertainment and the pilot being informative about what was going wrong at the Atlanta airport."
Cons: "The insane process that followed the flight of rebooking - it would have been VERY HELPFUL to have access to the inflight internet so that I could have rebooked my missed connection before we landed in the ATL airport where it was past midnight and there were hardly any staff available for us to talk to and the lines to speak to anyone took literal HOURS to get through."

Cons: "Not great communication from gate or staff on board. Failed to provide adequate water. No ice on super warm flight. Just bad experience overall."

Pros: "The friendliness of the staff and movie choices"
Cons: "Seat space"

Cons: "We sat on-board the aircraft, at the gate, for almost 2 hours due to a weather delay. During this time, we were not offered refreshments, nor were we offered any type of "compensatory benefit" for our delay (e.g., free Wi-Fi, vouchers good toward a future flight (a $30 voucher per passenger would seem appropriate), additional SkyMiles (3000-5000 SkyMiles would seem appropriate), etc.)."

Cons: "Late"

Cons: "Because my earlier flight was delayed they put me on this one in a middle seat I had payed for a plus front seat"

Pros: "On board crew was helpful and polite considwring our circumstances."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3xs (non weather) they said we would miss our connection (I didn't think we would) THEY rebooked a later flight. Of course we landed in time for our original flight. They refused to let us back on our original flight. Put me in touch w/ the help desk who after talking in circles admitted it was their mistake but he had no authority to help. FINAlly & only because others missed their flight we were given the option to go. Crew misplaced our luggage and sent it on a flight we were never supposed to be on, and the bad experience with delays of hours on end continued coming home. (Mechanimal non weather) WE WILL NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN!"

Pros: "The crew & my seat"
Cons: "The movie offerings & the snack offerings."

Pros: "There wasn't much to like. Just about everything was wrong. The plane was a newish 787, so it didn't feel old. Boarding went well because we complained about how tired we, at 70+, were because the flight was late and we'd been standing up; this resulted in us being boarded with some of the latish priority passengers."
Cons: "Everything, really. The plane was very crowded; small seats, little leg room. The meals were mediocre and the cabin staff were just barely the good side of unhelpful, officious and unfriendly The flight was inexplicably 2 hours or more late in excellent weather. No apologies given, the flight that was originally scheduled for 8 pm left close to 11 pm. While boarding the only light is a purplish ambient lighting that made it impossible to read anything, including the safety material, until the inflight entertainment was loaded up (the lights are only controlled through software-actuated virtual buttons on the screen). The inflight entertainment system is hard to use, too, designed by idiots for use by geniuses. But the very worst thing was the stress caused by Virgin Atlantic in just about guaranteeing that we would miss this flight. On our outbound voyage in January, VA, for reasons nobody knows, booked an ADDITIONAL leg from JHB to CPT on BA at 12:30 pm, even though we were already ON the earlier 9:30 BA flight we'd booked and paid for. Then, when we didn't show up for this spurious flight (because we were already in the air) we didn't book (BA swears they have evidence that VA made this booking), our return flight CPT to JBG three months later was cancelled WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE. If I hadn't been interested in knowing, the day before the flight, if the return BA flight had a meal, I would have showed up at the CPT airport in April and discovered that I had no way to get to the VA flight in JHB! As it was I spent an entire day trying to get back on the flight I'd already paid for. I advise EVERYONE who uses VA to reconfirm flights over and over. There is still no explanation for this. I will never NEVER fly VA again. They are not to be trusted."

Pros: "Well after going through a terrible storm to get to the airport we were given a opportunity to up grade to First Class for a very reasonable rate. That was great."

Pros: "Row 19 on a 737ER is great for room, as long as you don't plan on reclining (I rarely do in a daytime flight)"
Cons: "A little overcautious regarding seating the cabin crew because of possible turbulence, but better safe than sorry, I suppose. However, it is a common occurrence on this particular leg, so don't board knowing you might need to take a "break" before you get to Atlanta."

Pros: "at least, i got to Haiti"
Cons: "delays + long flight."

Pros: "The crew were friendly enough and willing to serve."
Cons: "The seat could have been thicker and softer for greater comfort--instead, it was thin and flimsy. There should also be greater space/pitch between the rows of seats."

Cons: "Need longer transfer time in Frankfurt airport. They use buses to airplanes and that eats up time. Also, passport control line can be long. Fights to and fro gave us barely enough time and we were last ones to board"

Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"

Pros: "good crew ok food for airline"
Cons: "despite an outrageous price we had problems registering our luggage economy light never heard of it"

Cons: "Lufthansa not taking any responsibility for allowing connection time to be so short. Everyone on the fight from London missed their connections!"

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent customer service with a smile!"
Cons: "Not sure how, but the food could be a bit better."

Pros: "There wasn’t anything to highlight as good. On this trip except LHR was organized and clean. The boarding was a free for all after the elderly and young had been boarded footstep as they should."
Cons: "The ground staff were rude and officious"

Cons: "Having more than one person at the curtesy desk when half the plain’s luggage was left in Germaine"

Cons: "They lost my luggage and we barely made it to our connecting flight"

Pros: "Entertainment and food were geat and a great distraction from the seating arrangement and the horrible leg area."
Cons: "Not having a chair leg in the middle of the leg area. being able to sit next to my partner instead of having us split up. If we bought two tickets at the same time we should have been able to sit together. Lastly the huge delay that caused us to miss are final flight."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The proximity of the arriving and departing gates"

Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."

Pros: "Flight arrived early."
Cons: "Last two transatlantic flights have been hot. What happened to a nice cool flight and using the blanket if you are cold?"

Pros: "Met expectations"
Cons: "Nothing to note"

Pros: "We liked mostly the crew, they were helpful, polite and efficient .entretaiment kept us distract during the long fly . Food was pretty good too."
Cons: "The seats are very close to each other . The plane was taxing for a long time before or has a gate available ."

Cons: "Every thing"

Pros: "The meals were very good!"

Pros: "Friendly staff.. Good food and as we had emergency exit seats there was plenty of leg room. Unfortunately no entertainment was offered on this flight."
Cons: "No entertainment. Plane was cold."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane was expected to land at FRa an hour early Andy they couldn’t wait five minutes for us after a three hour delayed flight. Every other flight was delayed on average 30minutes. When we arrived whoever was running the jet bridge took 15 minutes to get it out to our jet, essentially causing us to miss our flight right then. And then the staff had the audacity to tell us we had to hike back ten minutes to wait in an hour long line to rebook. When they could have done it at their gate just as easily. Simply awful service For paying first/business class"

Pros: "Excellent service like always Lufthansa! Very good food, nice entertainment, excellent crew!"

Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("

Cons: "You have to pay for food unless it is pretzels."

Pros: "I was assigned a seat at the gate discovered upon boarding the I had the best seat in the house! This has never happened for me before so it really made the flight. Thank you."
Cons: "Everything was good. Pleasantly surprised by the food."

Pros: "Very helpful crew, great service. Will fly again."
Cons: "Almost missed connecting flight had to run hard to make it. Airline did nothing to assure us that we will make it to next flight. Was very stressful, can do better."

Pros: "Good cabin crew service."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"

Cons: "For people who are going frequently to the US because of the small airplane from FRA_TLV A321 It is not worth for me buying Primer Economy since it is mixed and in British it is all the wayTLV-PHL 2 airplanes with primer economy"

Pros: "Plane confitions, food. Srvice"
Cons: "Seats are still uncomfortable le on Economy class."

Cons: "Missed my flight because the baggage check in closed, but what bothered me was that the attendant did not give any solutions or help, just coldly said “you can’t get on because you can’t check in your bag” and continued to tell me that I should just throw my luggage and all my things away to at least check in and get my body on the plane. I felt like I had to coerce her for help or advice on what I should do with my situation and she didn’t really give me any beneficial help until right before my gate closed and my plane departed. As customer service, shouldn’t they offer help without having the customer feel like they need to convince the check in attendant to give them alternate solutions?"

Pros: "Very comfortable aircrafts from FRA to FAR and back. Nice service, nice staff"
Cons: "The food becoming worse and worse each time.. I think it is better to Lufthansa to reduce price of the ticket and do not serve such kind of burgers.. Or improve the quality of food if they still positioning as the one of the best airlines."

Pros: "The plane is very nice. One of the best plane configurations. Crew is excellent."
Cons: "Seats can be more comfortable"

Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"

Pros: "GOOD food, service was fine. Seat had good room."
Cons: "My seat didn't stay back (would lock) and kept me from getting much sleep. But, ultimate reason for mediocre rating was the level of turbulence. very bad - maybe not airline's fault, but still it was unpleasant."

Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"

Pros: "Clean/comfortable plane with a great staff for the long flight."
Cons: "Hard to upgrade unless you spend a fortune."

Pros: "Staff was very attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Seating very cramped for a tall person. Tight squeeze!"

Cons: "The plane was half way full, i had the seat in the economy section same like a big guy, at one point i asked the flight attendant if i can change my seat to another economy seat (I didn't want a free upgrade) because the guy in my right could fit in his seat with the arm rest down and it was getting uncomfortable for me. She told me if i want a upgrade, witch I refuse to get and didn't help me in any way with the problem that i had. I think for cases like this even though it's an economy seat it still cost 750$ and for a 9h flight witch transformed in a 14h flight because weather condition and fueling problems, flight attendants should be more mindful with the guest confort rather than upselling. Lufthansa it's a geat company with great airplanes but i think that in order to get people to come back you should treat people in the economy class like normal people that pay a price nothing close to the word economy"

Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"

Pros: "Again the friendly crew."
Cons: "The snack at dinner. A simple sandwich would be better instead of the heated pizza and large sandwich they did give."

Pros: "Very friendly crew! Very comfortable seats. Bailey's offered free! I had never been on an Airbus 340 before--stairs down to the bathroom was interesting."
Cons: "Food--but probably no worse than other airlines."

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: "Great food, entertainment, comfort, and crew."
Cons: "Our layover was too short and going through customs, transferring our bag, then going through security again made us miss our connecting United flight."

Pros: "The flights itself was ok. The flight attendants caused me no problems, and the flights, when I FINALLY got on them, were smooth."
Cons: "everything else. The franfurt airport closure made me miss school because they did not offer extra flights to accommodate all the displaced travelers. I had to stay in the Frankfurt airport for a FULL EXTRA DAY, and every time I tried to get a new ticket, or ask anyone for help, I was given the run around. No one was helpful. I talked to about a dozen Lufthansa employees that day and only one was helpful at all. It was a hellish nightmare. Before my last flight, I was furious with how I had been treated all day and a horrible Lufthansa woman yelled at me for being upset about the situation. Then, when after much hassle I finally got to my destination, I was told my baggage was lost. That was on thursday and I still have not gotten it. i am never flying lufhansa again. This was the worst trip of my entire life."

Cons: "Flight may have been overbooked. Very confusing boarding/seating arrangements."

Pros: "Good Airline, perfect service"

Pros: "Seats are comfortable. It's pretty easy to sleep. And good entertainment selections. Crew comes around often to serve beverages. They feed you frequently."
Cons: "The food could have more fresh vegetables and fruit. There were screaming children, but that is not Lufthansa's fault. I also felt it took a necessary long time to exit the plane."

Pros: "food remarkably good decent entertainment comfortable temperature on time, not waiting everything went as expected."
Cons: "sadly, airplane seats just aren't that comfortable. But that is universal and expected."

Cons: "No boarding advantages as a star alliance silver member."

Pros: "As expected - another great flight with great service and arriving on time."

"Never booked this flight"

Pros: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "The seating space is horrendous, I am 5 ft 8 and felt like I was sitting with my knees at my chest, horrible horrible seating"

Cons: "The airline lost my suitcase and deliver it only 72 hours later... They refused to give me proper compensation for items that were broken..."

Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."

Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"

Cons: "Time"

Pros: "Good amount of space on the plane, lots of movies to watch, good food and drink."

Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"

Pros: "Great plane and staff"
Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."
Cons: "Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Passenger who needed wheelchair assistance it took KLM 50 minutes to get him off plane which delayed our boarding. KLM not prepared to handle passengers with needs"

Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "seat reservation. having to pay for luggage...."

Cons: "Delays, took my hand luggage into the hold,"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, friendly crew. Crew were conscious of recycling which I like a lot as there is so much waste on flight. Anything we can do to reduce waste is very welcome."
Cons: "Food wasn't very appetizing, pasta didn't have much flavor and I don't eat red meat so the other choice wasn't an option for me."

Pros: "KLM was a great experience compared to Airitalia. The food was good, the flight attendants were very helpful."

Pros: "The crew were really helpful with people who had tight connections because of the delayed flight"
Cons: "I wish they had WiFi"

Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The food."

Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."

Cons: "Nothing special"

Pros: "The seat was spacious and the concept of the evening meal being the lighter option was innovative and well thought out"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and congested with not much information or order."

Pros: "Flying with KLM is a pleasure"

Pros: "Nice flight ...was comfortable travel ...good food.Thanks"
Cons: "No such things"

Pros: "kLM staff was great."

Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."

Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."

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."

Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."

Pros: "Great service"

Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."

Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."

Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"

Cons: "Boarding was delayed a little due to weather as was takeoff. Cant blame them for weather but the connection was very tight."

Pros: "Consistently high standards"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."

Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."

Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"

Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."

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"

Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."

Pros: "Very efficient boarding, fast and professional but warm and friendly. The plane was very clean and quite spacious for a two by two configuration. On time departure and landing and smoothed processing at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing to improve"

Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"

Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."

Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."

Pros: "For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies."
Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"

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: "Short flight friendly crew"
Cons: "Good flight nothing to complain about. Was spoiled by the entertainment choices on the longer flights."

Cons: "Our flight from Nairobi to Lusaka was cancelled for some reason and we did not find out until we happened to log into the website to double check our itinerary. They automatically rescheduled the flight only giving us 25 minutes to reach our next flight...impossible. so, after calling, we were re-booked again and forced into a 13 hour layover in Amsterdam. Our original flight plan had 4 hours. so, because we are a family of 7 with a baby, we had to buy a hotel room to rest, costing us a lot of extra money we had not planned to spend. We contacted KLM for help with the cost but were rejected. We also lost 5 bags somewhere between Chicago and Lusaka, but after 2 days, we received them."

Cons: "The flight was very delayed. We sat on the floor because there was not enough seating. We eventually had to squeeze into buses and drive around the tarmac to find a plane. We lost 5 bags in the process but eventually got them 2 days after arrival. the bags did not show up when we originally were told they would."

Pros: "Seats ok. Crew is super. Drinks offered"
Cons: "Nothing, AF rocks"

Pros: "Clean plane , good crew ,"
Cons: "they didn't load my baggage from flight 1 to 2"

Pros: "The seat was really comfortable and I was able to sleep the whole flight with no disturbance"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Crew asked us if we’d like to move to an empty row to be more comfortable without us even requesting it."
Cons: "Bigger coffee cups? Really nothing to complain about. Everything I would expect from a flight. A++"

Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"

Cons: "Crew on the ground was very rude"

Cons: "Departure time was almost 2 hours late and the communication of the cabin crew regarding this issue was poor. Almost an hour went by without an update."

Pros: "The entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Seats are so cramped. I'm 5'3" and could use either arm rest because both people on either side spilled into my seat."

Cons: "The craft is a bit old. Harsh landing."

Pros: "Crew was really good, polite, efficient. The aircraft was relatively new and clean (rare for an airline to provide a new craft on an Africa segment). Food was good, seats comfortable. Will definitely make them my airline of choice to the extent that I can cost wise."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was excellent"

Pros: "Entire trip was easy and comfortable."

Pros: "The new movies selection, food was very good, staff more friendly than previous flights"
Cons: "Boarding always a problem on MEA we have to wait too long in the queue"

Cons: "Baggage check in was stressful"

Pros: "Crew was awesome!!"
Cons: "I paid extra for the seat, but there was a metal box under the seat in front of me that curtailed my ability to stow my carry bag, and my leg room. I am very diappointed that I paid above the normal seat charge as if there was a premium to this seat, but in reality it was a sb par seat."

Pros: "The crew was friendly!"
Cons: "Once again no vegetarian options."

Pros: "Crew and food were great."
Cons: "Old plane. Seats were super tiny and uncomfortable. Couldn’t sit in the same spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore."

Pros: "Nice staff. Flight on time."
Cons: "Bus to plane. Long walk to terminal upon arrival. Long Liong customs line?!!??"

Cons: "Everything was incredibly poor. Flight was delayed, entertainment was outdated and the airport staff were rude."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Very nice stews. Food was A plus compared to US airlines AND included. Great list of movies etc."

Pros: "Modern aircraft with power, big screens etc"

Cons: "Leg space."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"

Pros: "Everything!"

Cons: "None. I like everything"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."

Pros: "Lovely crew, clean toilets"
Cons: "It's an a380, stains everywhere, aisles between seats narrow even for business, caos at CDG, no clear queues, ground staff shout at passengers, food selection good but huge gap between describtion and reality, in JFK we waited for 30 minutes cause the docking spot was too narrow for the captain, sky priority? The economy got their bags before 1st and business."

Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and the crew friendly. Flight ran on time."
Cons: "Unloading the baggage took over 90 minutes, and there was no explanation for the delay and nobody from Air France in sight on the ground in Boston."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. In a French company I expect much more. The entertainment system on the airbus a380 was like an enchant IT system from the past. Very poor reaction time. Very messy and not people oriented at all. Especially after KLM's And Delta experience."
