Airline reviews

Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "The crew were not attentive. I needed milk for my child but they never came back. Their food was HORRIBLE and only two choices and both spicy and tasted disgusting. Honestly the worst flight for me with Qatar airways"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."

Pros: "N/A"
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: "crew was so kind and lovely with our daughter"
Cons: "food was fairly rough from Doha and the wine options in economy on all flights were terrible"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Very happy on Doha to ORD"

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 amazing. Made traveling with infant little less harder."
Cons: "The crew from Doha to Kolkata segment could have been little more helpful, especially when they see someone travelling with small kids"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "No alcohol served"

Pros: "The food and crew were great"
Cons: "Older plane the tv panels were faded"

Pros: "The staff at Qatar Airways did everything they could to make this flight one of the most enjoyable of my entire life. The food was well prepared and exceeded my expectations. I also enjoyed that the food was served at times that minimized the impact of the time change."
Cons: "The movie and TV options were impressive; however, in-flight WiFi and power would have been convenient and improved the entertainment on board the flight."

Pros: "The leg room was huge, the food was excellent and a lot and the customer service was great not my first time to fly with Qatar and it won’t be my last, the made my trip worthwhile. Thank you"
Cons: "No complaints great flight"

Pros: "Everything was perfect !!"

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: "The crew was excellent"

Pros: "Staff was great"

Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."

Pros: "had a whole row to myself and the food was very good"

Pros: "Helpful and friendly crew"
Cons: "Same as kochi to Doha flight"

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: "It was actually on time."

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: "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: "Food was great and one of the flight attendant, who is a Filipina (didn't have the chance to get her name :() is very accommodating and very nice."

Pros: "Unfortunately..."
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: "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"

Pros: "Very friendly online travel booking portal. I like it"

Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."

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: "Large monitor and many choices of movies. Good food, efficient boarding."

Pros: "Excellent customer service"

Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Cons: "I've never had this huge an issue on check in. Set us back over 45 minutes, and we could not get the VAT refund. I will not be paying more to fly on Qatar again based on our incoming and outgoing issues. I wouldn't rate it any higher than other cheaper options."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"

Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"

Pros: "I love everything about Emirates."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Cleaningness"
Cons: "Main problems at Dubai airport. Employee at the airport charged me money for the same luggage that Newark employees said it is according to air line rules. That shocked me. I didn’t buy anything from Dubai. I think it’s not right."

Pros: "Fast boarding, seating space ok for long legs, variety of entertainment, many food choices"

Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "We wheelchair passengers were also asked to stand in line for boarding at the gate"

Pros: "Decent leg room in economy; good entertainment system & food/drink"
Cons: "I was expecting to pay for only 10 kg excess baggage according to my own scale but was charged for 15 kg and the check-in staff was rude and unwilling to listen; in-flight staff were not polite, pushing past passengers without any word; such a disappointment as I expected much higher standard of service and courtesy. Nothing beats Singapore Airlines."

Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Good leg room"

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: "I could not pick my seat in advance. It wasn’t clear while booking that this was the case with emirates. They had fees to book a seat in advance. I could only pick my seat when online check in was allowed. It was important for me to have a good seating option on 14hr flight."

Pros: "Internet in boeing 777"
Cons: "Internet in airbus 380"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "service, staff. had night mare"

Pros: "This was our first time flying Emirates and it will not be our last. The staff, service and experience has been very pleasant."

Cons: "WiFi services were inadequate."

Pros: "I liked the meals"
Cons: "It was hard to push my chair back"

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: "The entertainment options are excellent and legspace on the aircraft is good."
Cons: "For a 14 hour flight there are no water bottles provided. You need more than the couple of cups of water provided on the flight, and it is not practical to keep on asking for more water from the crew. Quality of food (Asian veg) was not very good."

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: "Entertainment Food Friendly Flight Crews"
Cons: "Had to rush to the next flight in Dubai."

Pros: "the amazing atttention from the staff and the cleanliness of the airline."
Cons: "the seats did not go back enough"

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."

Cons: "Boarding was just a little delayed."

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."

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."

Pros: "on borad crew Food entertainment plane"
Cons: "wheel char request poorly managed in Dubai and Amman Seating area next to crying children for 5 hrs + is horrible"

Pros: "Amenities and food, customer service."

Pros: "Flight departure not on time. Hence trouble for connection flights.V were delayed by 14 hours reaching our destination.Emirates desk have not provided for accommodation to stay at JFK airport for more 12 hrs at Night from 11pm to 8 am. V were stranded at airport without sleep.V r planning to claim compensation for this horrible situation because of Emirates"

Pros: "I wish the airlines, all airlines would keep the middle seat vacant on all flights!! Such a comfortable feeling and flight. I’ve flown multiple times this summer during Covid, having that middle seat vacant has made traveling by air for me a very good, comfortable thing again. Don’t ever go back to packing us in like cattle car flights!!"

Cons: "TVs/outlets on my side and section of the plane were not working."

Pros: "They did not clean with antiseptic the tray tables and tv screens between flights. Because of corona virus scare. I asked stewardess and she said no"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and the seats were comfortable"

Pros: "The atl to bwi leg was not great. No inflight entertainment and the aircraft looked old."
Cons: "A newer aircraft that doesn't show its age would be nice"

Pros: "Kudos to the employees who really tried to help rather than pay mere lip service."
Cons: "The plane experienced a mechanical issue forcing us to return to the gate after waiting for an hour. The staff was clearly overwhelmed and focused on moving us along (Cheryl) rather than resolving our need to reach our destinations.it wasn’t until we found one extremely patient and persistent employee (LaShondra-?) who booked us through NYC rather than Atlanta so we reached Rochester on the same day. So the questions are- why don’t the airport hold a larger inventory of parts, why aren’t there back up planes and why doesn’t the software better cope with these types of situations?"

Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Both the pilots and flight attendants timed out at different times. After boarding we had to deplane because crew was timing out. Had to fly new crew in from Atlanta. Was in airport from 10:50am to 8pm with airlines offering a bag of chips and water."

Cons: "Not cancelling our flight"

Cons: "Plane was FREEZING!!!"

Cons: "the flight was delayed and so I missed my train home"

Cons: "We could of been on time, we had a connection I. Atlanta and had 15 minutes to spare"

Pros: "Flight timing and gate arrival"
Cons: "Boarding"

Pros: "Terrific service."
Cons: "Everything was great."

Cons: "Full flight. We weren’t able to chose our seats and were put in middle seats in different rows."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "The plane was hot"

Pros: "Prompt action, excelent customer service and accurate reservation details. Auto text message alerts a real life-saver. Boarding was easy, plane was clean and staff super friendly."
Cons: "nothing realy"

Pros: "Boarding was on time; flight departures on time and arrived earlier than expected! Pilot told us exactly what was the status and gave us updates; cabin was well air conditioned; flight attendants were friendly; bags came out very quick! Very nice flight"

Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and found me a new seat when I requested one."
Cons: "My assigned seat was next to a morbidly obese man. He overflowed his seat and took up at least five inches of my seat. The seats have become so narrow that even an average weight male has trouble fitting his shoulders into the seats."

Cons: "On time and nice media"

Pros: "The gentleman that was calling zone 1, etc etc. was amazing. I should have grabbed his name. Kept us informed and thanked us and really appreciated our business. He rocked!"

Pros: "The crew did the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for 7:45 pm. Due to the storm the day before, my flight out of Miami was cancelled and I was told that the flight out of W Palm Beach was my only option. I paid $150 for an Uber at 4 pm. At 6:37, I got an email with news of a two hour delay. I would’ve appreciated an earlier notice. But much worse was the boarding experience. As half the passengers had boarded, someone announced that we had to have everyone boarded and seated in 5 minutes, or else the crew would time out, and we’d have to stay in WPalm. This set off a frenzy, with seated passengers yelling at the people boarding to hurry!! I was told by the pilot while exiting in LGA, that we made it by 30 seconds! It could’ve been handled so much better!"

Cons: "We boarded on time and were ready to leave the gate early. Somehow the pilot and air traffic controller managed to take 1 hour for de ice and takeoff even though we were 2nd in the queue. No excuse!"

Pros: "Smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I was not able to change seats..."

Pros: "Kenyatta Cheatham, our flight attendant was absolutely delightful! She made my flight enjoyable with her beautiful smile. She clearly loves her job!"

Pros: "On time; safe flight"
Cons: "Service from boarding to landing was impersonal. No headphones etc. Etc."

Pros: "Customer service"

Pros: "The stewards and flight was overall fine. In fact I found the stewards to Atlanta from West Palm very accommodating."
Cons: "I have reservation on booking Comfort plus next time I fly though. There appeared to be no difference in the seating or service as economy. A lesson learn I guess. I will atillflyDelta but stick to economy. I saw no perks"

Pros: "Just getting to my destination"
Cons: "Service very poor and seats very uncomfortable"

Cons: "The flight was delay for 3 hours and they only give us chips and water. They didn't explain well what was the problem. The plane was dirty inside and the seats werent comfortable at all, the plane was making weird noises. There is no window in the 11A Window Seat. Really really bad service at all."

Pros: "Very comfortable plane, 4 snack choices, friendly crew."
Cons: "It was all good, except that the charging stations were difficult to figure out since they were out of sight under the seats. I had to have the flight attendant plug in my charger."

Cons: "Flight left late and missed connecting flight in Atlanta. It's 9:30 pm and I'm still stuck in Atlanta airport."

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours, but due to weather. Not the airline's fault. They got us here sooner than I thought we could arrive. Plane was tiny"

Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "Crew did an outstanding job"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "Clean, polite, informed"
Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "We have been flying Delta more often lately. Great service, newer planes in and out of Alaska, and affordable first class tickets. Snack basket had chocolate bars..."
Cons: "Short 3 hour flight-no complaints"

Pros: "Getting to ATL"
Cons: "We boarded, they closed the door, told us to turn our phones off, acted like we were leaving, then informed us we had an hour delay. The flight attendants remarked that they couldn't hold us hostage and could get off if we want. The whole thing wasn't done properly."

Pros: "Got from point A to point B"
Cons: "nothing all was good as expected."

Cons: "Flight was 7 hours delayed and every 2 hours of waiting they delayed the flight 2 more hours"

Pros: "The crew was very nice. The seats were mostly comfortable and having the movies on the headrest is a wonderful idea!"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and some of us had to check our bags but atleast it was free of charge. They should work on that."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, the crew on board was nice"
Cons: "Boarding and unboarding was unorganized and hectic. Also the crew broke my luggage and because I didn't go to the counter right afterwards I can't be reimbursed for it"

Pros: "Left on time. Boarded easily and arrived early"
Cons: "Flying :)"

Pros: "Excellent crew. Better drinks in comfort plus BUT NO SCOTCH!! Bummer."
Cons: "Seats are NOT comfortable even in special comfort plus ( too thin)."

Cons: "One of the men working the desk at the gate was rude & condescending to me. The other gate agent who was having us board (he was an ethnic man) was friendly & excellent."

Pros: "Made up the departure delay in flight."
Cons: "Gate and Cabin crew kept giving opposing reasons for our departure delay, just be up front and honest. Cabin was hot. Very hard landing"

Cons: "Everything was excellent! I will be flying with them again!"

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

Cons: "Unfriendly, sarcastic flight attendant. No free gin & tonics on United/Lufthansa apparently, unlike other international airlines. Had to pay extra to get what ought to be a standard amount of legroom."

Pros: "The crew should treat better passengers but overall is been good"
Cons: "Overall is been good"

Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."

Pros: "Excelent service"
Cons: "I liked all"

Pros: "Staff was very pleasant , polite, and accommodating"
Cons: "No complaints except for the how long is the flight, but it’s a part of a journey"

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

Pros: "Excellent crew, provided beverages constantly, meals were very good for airplane food, seats were comfortable for most of the 9.5 hours. Entertainment selections were more than adequate. Even the babies were quiet !!!"
Cons: "TV screens did not function consistently, had to be reset a couple of times. Plane was late boarding (but made up most of the time). Had to go through security a second time even though it was a connecting flight. Luggage got crushed in a carousel pile-up and took a long time to come out."

Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."

Pros: "Cabin crew hospitality and service were amazing and clean airplane"
Cons: "N/A"

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"

Pros: "excellent service and crew"

Cons: "They left my suitcase in Frankfurt with our car keys."

Pros: "Flight attendants were great, friendly, courteous and responsive. The relaxation and mediation program was great! Boarding was fluent and easy."
Cons: "No matter what you try to order on the airplane is totally disgusting. If it's not overloaded with cheese and tomato sauce then it's overcompensated with spices (salt or chili). I will never understand why it is so hard to provide simple, fresh and enjoyable meals. Chairs in economy are rarely cleaned up and one can see on the cushions that they are worn out and have lost their padding making the seats very uncomfortable. There was no foot rest available (which is such a simple addition that helps a lot) and the "holder pocket" on the seat in front was a simple net completely useless. Tables were dirty suggesting they were never cleaned and disinfected. Knowing that the highest source of viruses are the tray tables and the pockets in front I would expect attention to be focused on those- it not only impacts the health of the traveler but more important that of the crew. Why is it so hard to think of this business two fold: make revenue but mostly be kind to humans."

Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Very hot on the plane, food mediocre, flight attendants could be friendlier"

Pros: "Flight attendants are great"
Cons: "I don't like the Star Alliance. Due to where I live and where I go, I have to use the United/Lufthansa combination. If I book with United, I can't select my Lufthansa seats until 24 hours before my flight. That means I end up in the back of the plane in the least desirable seats. If I book with Lufthansa, then I can't book my United seats. I have booked with United and paid for economy plus, then find as I board, the Lufthansa flight doesn't have economy plus."

Pros: "Flight attendants we good"
Cons: "Business class seats were just regular seats without a 3rd person. Legroom bad and seats narrow. Not good value b"

Pros: "Service was execellent"
Cons: "The entertainment system and charging didn't work but they did give me a voucher for 100 Euros to spend."

Pros: "Food and complimentary drinks (including wine)."
Cons: "Could improve the economy class boarding process (go by sections instead all at once)."

Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"

Pros: "Staff was nicer on this flight verus the first flight."
Cons: "My tv didnt work. They tried to reset it twice. So 9 hours without entertainment sucks!"

Cons: "The vegan meal. No airline appears to know how to make a healthy and tasty meal."

Cons: "Horrible in flight food. Even in the business class it was mediocre at best. The in-flight entertainment system did not have a responsive interface. The content was dated."

Cons: "Being asked, when other passengers were around me, how much money I cary with me. This is a dangerous thing. I don't know whom I travel with, and I felt at risk knowing that other people know how much cash I have with me. Plus, the money were counted on the passageway to the plane, with people walking by. I strongly believe that you should change the method you ask and check passengers for cash. I heard other details that I shouldn't hear from another women who was also checked. What I ask is PRIVACY."

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

Pros: "Decent flight. Nice crew. Clean cabin."
Cons: "We booked these flights expecting Lufthansa. Little disappointed to learn they were Brussels airlines. Inflight entertainment options and meal options don't seem to be as good. Flight crew was pleasant and fine. After learning it was Brussels airlines I went through their check-in process for families and requested kid-friendly meals, but nothing came of it. Slightly disappointed."

Pros: "Great movie choices"
Cons: "Temperamental touch screen was frustrating."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay"

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: "The food, drink, and entertainment selection was great. There were tons of movies to watch and keep me entertained."
Cons: "Once I got in I was given a middle seat, which I would not have chosen had I been able to check in prior for this flight. After this we were given great service until half way through the flight when I was becoming quite thirsty and kept trying to signal the flight attendant based on my help button, but no one came, so I had to stop a flight attendant that was passing so I could ask for some water to drink. Overall, the flight was OK, even though I felt a little crammed in my seat and the need to fish for a flight attendant just to get water was a hassle."

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

Pros: "Fast check in and boarding. Courteous service."
Cons: "I did not get te entree of my choice on one of the flights."

Pros: "Food was pretty good except for breakfast. Hospitality is great. Wish there was more access to water."
Cons: "Big passengers sitting near smaller passengers is annoying as they encroach on the limited space that exist and armrests suck as per usual."

Pros: "Good space in cabin compared to other airlines and excellent service by crew"
Cons: "Benefits for frequent flyers and senators have been eroded significantly . also it has been made much harder to achieve status. In the past, complimentary upgrades were done frequently. nowadays it doesn't happen anymore. For someone who is flying approximately 30 times per year with star alliance, this is dissatisfying. I also don't understand why my preferences from my profile are not used in the pre-allocation of my seat."

Cons: "I did not like that I had to pay another 30Euri to transport my suitcase. When I booked the flight there is no indication that luggage is excluded"

Cons: "We were given seats directly behind their Premium Economy or whatever they called it on the return flight. We had purchased an upgrade. I have evidence of cc charges. While our seats (located directly behind the Plus section) gave us extra leg room (I don't know why) we did not have the wider seats, food service style and menu as given to those directly in front of us. There was actuallly a barrier between them and us which hit me in the head every time I stood up! On a long flight from Munich to LAX we felt and were cheated."

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

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: "Pleasantly greeted"
Cons: "Lack of space makes flying pure torture. When will airrlines get it regarding customer needs?! Crew not accessible in between serving times"

Pros: "Very nice snack."

Pros: "I called Lufthansa customer service on 8/10/16 the day before our flight because I wasn't feeling well and was concerned that I might feel worse the next day and have to cancel our flight. The lovely Customer Service rep was so sweet and concerned about my health, answered all my questions about what to do if I needed to cancel, and told me to call back anytime for more help. Also the flight attendants remembered my food allergies and were very attentive on the flights."

Pros: "Service was great , flight attendant very courteous"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "My coach seat on the upper deck was roomy thanks to the window cubbies on the A380. The flght attendants were friendly and very helpful. The A380's upper deck is noticably quieter. I throughly enjoyed flying on the A380. The food was also the best airplane food I've had."

Cons: "At too high"

Pros: "the upgrade to plus. we will be selecting that option in the future now that we have experienced it. thank you"

Cons: "This was actually operated by United and as usual united service food and quality was way below the norm. Very disappointing."

Pros: "The whole flight went in time and all was well..."
Cons: "But when we got to Barcelona we had to wait 40 mins to get off the plane and another 2 hours to get our luggage. The baggage handlers went on strike."

Cons: "No exaggeration: The crew rolled a beverage cart in front of the restroom while I was in there. I couldn't leave for about 4 minutes The food made me vomit. That's why I was in the restroom when they blocked me in My headset jack was broken. 500 movies aren't worth anything if I can't hear them"

Pros: "From the friendly service, great entertainment and wine with dinner, yes, wine is served with dinner at no charge! They make my international travel easy and relaxing. I will always take Lufthansa when I can."

Pros: "Friendly crew, great access to a variety refreshments, robust entertainment library."
Cons: "No suggestions."

Pros: "I liked how generous they were with food and drinks"
Cons: "Free WiFi could have made the flight a lot better"

Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."

Pros: "Loved the smooth ride."
Cons: "Bathroom was pretty nasty"

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Ran out of business class meal. Substituted a Econ class."

Pros: "The pilot and the crews were helpful about the transit. Pilot make up a lot of time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, had to run to my next connection flight."

Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my baggage was lost"

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

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"

Cons: "Staff rude and short"

Pros: "Nice staff and no delay"
Cons: "Instead of crisps maybe a bit of cheese or crackers"

Pros: "Our flight was delayed in Bejing, than we loosed the booked flight of KLM. When we arrived in Amsterdam, we get the recheked in flight."
Cons: "Doesn't"

Cons: "Dozens of high school students screaming and climbing onto seats, crew did not intervene."

Pros: "Amazing services .. on time just exactly .. I feel really happy onboard KLM ❤️"

Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"

Pros: "yes"
Cons: "not really"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat but it’s only a 1 hour flight so not a big deal."

Cons: "lost baggage"

Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"

Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."

Pros: "Nice people and good service"
Cons: "Not much"

Pros: "Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling."

Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."
Cons: "Except for the man next to me - great!"

Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment on board in business. Stale buns - staff unapologetic. Older 737 with uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "Friendly in-flight personell"
Cons: "Approx. 1 hour delay, which was not the airline's fault (construction on runways)"

Pros: "Sound was broken on my TV set!"
Cons: "Called stewardess twice to assist. No response!"

Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "The aircraft was clean"
Cons: "The food was terrible, wifi was extremely expensive (Delta had free messaging over their wifi)"

Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Warm plane with happy staff."
Cons: "Maybe a second sandwich option for food, not everyone likes cheese."

Cons: "The Guy who had an accident when boarding causing a delay. Also I didn’t like the wait fir checking as passengers with children went before business class and should be after."

Pros: "Entertainment was good, and crew was very nice and accommodating. Flight was very comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "The food was okay, not that great."

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: "quick and relaxed"

Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."

Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."

Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."

Pros: "."

Pros: "The staff and crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "Food and staff were great"
Cons: "Entertainment system old and not as many options as other KLM flight. No power on aircraft for charging"

Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The space is no longer a respectful space. Paid 32 Euros for my seat, there was not enough space, the man beside me kept jabbing me on the ribs."

Pros: "A nice short flight"
Cons: "We had booked business on our flight to Milan, and it was extremely disappointing that on this sector they put us on the last seat in the back of the plane. There were plent of seats on this flight that had extended legroom. A bit of a mystery, why Westjet elected to put usin the last seats on the plane?"

Cons: "sardines!"

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: "Fine as delta flights go"
