Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "Service and food"

Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."
Pros: "If we had arrived on time everything would have been perfect. However I did not arrive in Johannesburg because a flight delay (even though our flight was set to let ontime) caused probably 40 people to miss their connections. To their credit, Qatar Airways did find accommodations for us and gave us food vouchers. Otherwise it'd be a zero rating."
Cons: "Boarding took far too long and caused us to be an hour late. Because of this, I am missing out on events scheduled in South Africa. This is very upsetting and it appears that Qatar Airways is too slow with boarding, there was no explanation given for why it took so incredibly long to board."

Pros: "excellent services from top to bottom cabin crews.Salute to Hats off them."

Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."
Cons: "Check in crew in Lahore ganged up against me and wanted to extort £200 for taking me laptop on board along with my hand carry. No where in the world has an airline ever asked me for this, and I fly a fair bit. Since I didn't allow them to extort me, they forced me to throw away my brand new Delsey hand carry at the airport. I had no cover as they threatened to if load my luggage and not let me fly home. Not a 5 start airline from any angle. Will never use Qatar again!!! This was my first and last flight with them."

Pros: "Rhank you dear Qatar for excellent customer service"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The plane was neat, clean and the services was world class. I was made to feel at home with service always at my finger tips."

Pros: "Seat"
Cons: "Check-in counter: clerk was “mute”, no greeting, no words about the gate, luggage destination, passport paper. Poor communication: 90 minutes delay, but no announcements Inconsiderate: when the “business class bathroom” located between business and economy classes, was unoccupied, the fly attend Commanded not to use after standing there for 10 minutes. No tea or coffee with breakfast Gate has no information: no destination, no time indicated"
Pros: "Excellent entertainment, great food, and very nice helpful Crew members!"

Pros: "Overall flight was good. The flight was on time, the boarding was smooth, the entertainment was excellent. I would like to thank crew for their work"
Cons: "As a family it was a big disappointment that we got seated in a different row. The check in person didn’t even made an effort to put us together just suggested that we can ask to switch on a plane. Another big disappointment was food Please bring the food quality back"
Pros: "Check in process was good, and toilette inside airplane has a little more space, The set each passenger received for long trip was nice."
Cons: "The seats, the comfort on those seats are terrible, very hard to sit for 12 hours and this is unaceptable, food needs to be more vary since passengers are from different countries"

Pros: "Nice seat, good choice of entrainment, great food"
Cons: "That they offloaded my baggage and didn't tell me. I didn't have my stuff for 2 days."
Pros: "Excellent service from ticket agents, cabin stewards, etc."
Cons: "Because we were late, my baggage didn't get transferred. I had to ask around to find out who handles Turkish air baggage issues in Tel Aviv. I found out within a out half an hour what would happen -- you had them delivered to where I was staying the next day. It all went smoothly and fortunately I had allowed extra time after I arrived ... no problems. And the people who handled your baggage claims were professional."
Cons: "because your flight from Sarajevo to Istanbul was delayed we missed the connection to the SFO flight and had to stay another 24 hours in Turkey + pay $60 for visas......this was a connection that you had scheduled!"
Pros: "Excellent food excellent services"
Cons: "Not prompt and boarding wasn’t great .."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."

Cons: "No connection till following evning"
Pros: "It was a very fine flight Kosher food was fine Only problem was very long lines at boarding and repetitive"
Pros: "The seats and leg space very good. Flight clean ."
Cons: "Food served was poor in quality. Bread seemed to be stale and hard. Seems from the previous flight. Crew had poor service. Some food has fallen on the floor and she kept pushing to serve the same food and was reluctant to discard that tray."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from budapest to Istanbul, causing us to miss our connecting flight to San Francisco. The staff was rude and unhelpful in finding a way home, ultimately sending us to New York City for an overnight layover without hotel accommodations. We had to sleep at the airport for a morning flight to San Francisco, causing us to miss work. This was the worst travel experience of my life."
Cons: "na"
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"
Pros: "Flight attendance service is great"
Cons: "Boarding process too complicated with several security check points make the travel more difficult"
Pros: "friendly crew and superior service"
Pros: "Desserts were good. Food variety and options were good. Comfort/Entertainment on flight were exceptional. Timely take off and landing."
Cons: "The variety of food was nice, but the main coarses were below average-Dry chicken as well as over cooked pasta. Trash wasn't collected often enough. Flight crew were friendly enough, but I raved about last years Turkish Airlines flight, but this year it was just so-so and I'm not exactly sure why."
Pros: "Complimentary travel kit was a life saver."
Pros: "food was good."
Cons: "narrow seating space, no reclining. my entertainment system stopped working in middle of flight just after making my original playlist. also overhead bins were not enough."
Pros: "everything is the best,I fly a lot but turkish airlinesis the best"
Pros: "Very friendly service. Ground staff and excellent cabin crew. Excellent onboard entertainment. Good quality wines and multiple selections."
Cons: "On Board food offerings, seats are a little tight"
Pros: "Care and food on board were excellent."
Cons: "Boarding was late and was very confusing. No special area for business class. This was not true when we were going to Cairo from Istanbul. The lounge there is fabulous but because our flight was late we didn't have time to go to the lounge on return flight."
Pros: "Excellent serice by airline crew nice food l like Tayip erdogan .end l like Turkiye and llike Turkish arlanes, Sincerely your Customer Cabir Senalan"
Pros: "The stewardesses, the food, the entertainment. The dynamic lightning during the flight. The move to get others on the flight to shut their windows for a while so that the rest of us could get some rest."
Cons: "I'm a tall person, so if at some point accommodations could be made to maybe increase the leg pace by a few inches between eats, it would be greatly appreciated."
Pros: "My husband and I had a very average experience overall. From boarding to inflight customer service."
Cons: "We did not plan to check in any luggage since we had few connections, so we decide to take our rimowa luggage with us. So we were forced to check them in because it was only 8kg allow per passenger on carry on. So our luggage end up full of big dents, and scratches. We reported to the airlines and it was hard to justify what we were complaining about it. As a consumer were are very unsatisfied and unhappy. One of the worst experience in hospitality I have ever experience."
Pros: "A great crew"
Pros: "Comfy plane overall, good and entertainment was good!"
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Cons: "I asked for sugar 3x before finally getting it (1 hour), but by then the coffee was cold and I had to request a new one and wait another 10 mins :)"
Pros: "Check in was.quick and efficient in Venice ..for a short flight they served a nice meal complimentary"
Pros: "The seats were a normal size for an international flight. Everyone got a blanket, pillow, earphones and eye mask in their seat, all of which were necessary for the 11-hour flight. There were a lot of great movies to choose from, as well!"
Cons: "The bathroom garbage cans got full very early on in the flight, making it uncomfortable to use them. The stewardesses were friendly, but it was difficult to understand their English and the pilot's English (and I teach ESL). They, in turn, had a difficult time understanding me when I spoke to them in very slow, clear English."
Pros: "Flight was smoothe, Crew was awesome, hotel was great."

The flight staff were polite, seats were comfortable, and we reached our destinations on time. This was my first time traveling first class since the pandemic. The difference in service was dramatic and made me seriously regret having paid three times more for a first class ticket. Specifically No Sky Cap lounge - One of the main reasons I traveled first class was to use the Sky Cap lounge since we were going to have to wait for our flight for several hours at PDX. PDX Sky Cap would not allow us to enter as first class passengers. The receptionist said we needed to have their American Express Card. Further the Las Vegas Sky Cap lounge is permanently closed. Food - Our first flight was early in the morning, so I thought no need to grab breakfast in the airport, I'm traveling first class. The only food we were served or offered between LAS and PDX was Biscoff cookies. Our return trip was the same. Seems the days of being served a hot meal in first class are long gone.

Pros: "Exit row."
Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "Paid $28 for internet and it didn’t work"
Pros: "Good services in anticipating our next leg"
Pros: "Went very smoothly. Very comfortable."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Cons: "On time flight"
Pros: "Plane was clean & modern"
Cons: "More leg room"
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."
Pros: "They got me an air sick bag since there were none in the pockets. Bathroom was very clean. Chair had bendy headrests. Didn’t have to check my bag."
Cons: "Very turbulent, seat did not stay reclined. On a redeye flight, this was the key misery-maker. Seat in front was reclined so no possible position to sleep from the middle seat, even for a short person."
Pros: "In flight service was fast and well organized. The dinner was very good. Flight was turbulent free and no isues."
Cons: "The plane was at the gate but it took over an hour for international inspection and a long time for the plane to be cleaned."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable but crowded. Was nice to have the built in screen for entertainment."
Cons: "Did not like being bumped to a flight with a five hour layover in SLC. Travel day was already very long. We booked the flight originally based on the shorter layover of an hour and a half. Seemed very inconsiderate."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Hot in the plane and the landing was uncomfortable"
Cons: "Seats did NOT recline, which seems to be a pretty poor planning for a red eye flight."
Cons: "Comfort"
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Cons: "Being on time"
Pros: "The pilot, Mr. Howes, I believe, came out and personally thanked everyone for flying Delta. It was a nice touch to see the actual pilot that was flying and me home and that he shared his gratitude. Go DELTA!!"
Pros: "The crew members were excellent and efficient. Europe was fabulous."
Cons: "9+ hours in the air is never fun when you're in economy class: humans have gotten bigger as airline seats grow smaller."
Pros: "I was moved to an end Seat, as I was in constant leg pain."
Cons: "I was zitting against my Neighbor as the Seats are so narrow."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "Felt claustrophobic after a while because guy in seat next to me was rather large and spilling into my seat"
Cons: "I was placed on an earlier flight as soon as I arrived at the Portland airport. The flight was full, there was no room for my bag in the overhead bins. The bag was checked, not to just Seattle but all the way to Venice. Well, surprise, surprise, the bag was lost on the way to Venice. KLM does not allow enough time in Amsterdam for luggage to make a connecting flight."
Pros: "Delta worked with us on rebooking a flight after we messed up. Onboard the staff was incredibly friendly and the free snack selection was decent (even gluten free treats). Boarding was an orderly process."
Pros: "Excellent Service."
Pros: "On time, free beer , good price"
Cons: "No movie, no charging telephone"
Cons: "I will make it my sole purpose to let everyone I know and review this on every site. Kayak messed up our flights so badly and then would not fix them. I spent 4 hours being bounced between airlines and travel sites just to be screwed with for a mistake Kayak made and would not fix. Worst company ever!"
Pros: "ATL based crew was great. Exit row extra room as promised"
Cons: "Cheese snack purchased was not up to par. Grapes soft, almonds mealy and cheese dried out. Disappointing. New faster Wi-Fi was intermittent at best. Down for long stretches."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "Gate attendant was extraordinarily rude"
Pros: "really great service, arrived early, as good as it gets."
Pros: "Crew fantastic"
Pros: "Better seats"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Crew were good, flight on time, free drinks"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "TSA Pre-check info not loaded on flight from LAX to PDX."
Pros: "Typical flight, all went well. Special services picked me up at the plane."
Cons: "Condition of the airplane"
Pros: "in economy class"
Cons: "very hard seats with not enough legroom."
Pros: "Friendliness of the staff"
Cons: "No complaints. I wish that the updates on the flight delay were a little clearer, but that's about it."
Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seating has gotten WAY too tight. Will not do that again ... discomfort, inability to even stretch a little bit caused painful nerve flare?"
Pros: "Smooth flight; informative crew"
Pros: "Kindness and politeness, on time lots of explaining"
Cons: "Beyond seat space all was perfect"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Nothing- good flight, I couldn't sleep but that wasn't your fault"
Pros: "Delta has a good business product. The entertainment system was good. The food was good."
Cons: "The business class crew struck me as distracted and putout to be there."
Cons: "Snacks if possible"
Cons: "I chose my seats when I purchased tickets thru Expedia. Then for some reason Delta wouldn't allow me to keep my seats and I had to have them assigned at boarding. Why? What causes this? I was stuck in the back of the small jet from Minneapolis to Cwa when there were a few open seats in the middle. Disappointed. I won't be choosing Delta in the future!"
Pros: "I trusted Delta to take of my clients; Delta usually did. Rather, the employees of Delta did. Now when I travel, I prefer Delta (when they aren't too much more economically). Let me change that to I used to prefer Delta, because the times, they are achanging. My home airport is Atlanta, I'm usually traveling to Seattle or Portland; Delta is king in those routes. There's more flight time options, and the entertainment available is better."
Cons: "Here's where the picky comes in. I downloaded the 'Go Go" wifi app beforehand. When I tried to connect I received a message that it wasn't available on my routes. Why couldn't they tell me that it might not work on my routes before they took my money? Further, why wasn't it available? It's not like I was going on a multi city/country trip, this was Atlanta to Portland non-stop. Then there's the 'Premier Seating". I opted for it on my outbound flight and received TSA Pre Check. I didn't buy the seating coming back; I did not receive TSA Pre Check. Coincidence? My fare was more than Alaska Airlines was offering it for, I paid for the wifi that didn't work, and in order to avoid the back of the plane, you must pay. So, I guess I'll be going to Alaska Airlines. They don't have as many flights, but I don't feel dinged for more money every time I turn around."
Pros: "Long flight but smooth despite delays"
Cons: "Delayed by 2.5 hours."
Pros: "When flying using the big carriers, Delta is becoming our go to airline for timeliness and comfort."
Pros: "The ground staff at check in was excellent. She was extremely helpful. The flight was on time."
Cons: "Boarding was a scramble. The amount of hand luggage people were allowed to bring on board was excessive and the overheads were crammed full."

Baggage never made it to Frankfurt so which sucks when taking a European vacation. Luggage showed up three days later.

Flight has been canceled and no assistance was offered at Frankfurt Airport to guide us through. We stayed there for more than 8h with no help from anyone

Flight got delayed for six hours

The crew is really friendly

Pros: "The crew on this flight were excellent. Friendly and professional. Attentive and patient."
Cons: "The food needs major improvement. What has happened to Lufthansa??? Other people I know on different flights also have big complaints about the food."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Better entertainment selection"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable, no air controller and the TV screen with the flight information was right in front of us. Even the flight attendants couldn’t turn it off and it was so bright making it difficult to sleep."
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Never seen such a large streaming movie library. Never seen live stream at seat from cameras (3) outside the plane."
Cons: "It was not clear this was a no-checked-baggage flight, seeing as I specifically searched with flights with luggage. I chose Lufthansa's flight counting on the fact that international flights always allow one checked bag. I had to pay on that way here. I"ll have to pay on the way home."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "Lufthansa is great."
Pros: "This space intentionally left blank"
Cons: "For starters, they sat my 12 year old daughter 6 rows away and both of us in center seats so no one would switch with us. Mid flight, my daughter asked to switch with me since the guy next to her kept asking personal questions and was making her uncomfortable. Second, the in flight entertainment did not work. Third, I had pre-ordered a diabetic meal, they “think they may have given it to someone else.” Fourth, one hour delay making for a tight connection. And finally... they lost my suitcase. Should arrive in a few days."
Pros: "lots of crew members, flight landed a few minutes early."
Cons: "although i booked a reservation with 2 passengers, they didn't seat us together and were not helpful at all when we asked them to switch (they assigned middle seats in different rows, so i wasn't able to just ask another passenger to switch). the agent's attitude at the gate was "too bad""
Pros: "Good crew and plane"
Cons: "Terrible bag check before security, very long and disorganized"

Pros: "Clean and efficient. Great service."
Cons: "Crowded seating. Need better headphones."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "It was a good flight with Lufthanza - nice and friendly crew, comfortable plane, good food."
Pros: "Roomy seats, excellent service!"
Cons: "Nothing I didn't like!"
Pros: "Entertainment and food were good."

Pros: "Selection of wine"
Cons: "The flight was delayed from Washington DC and from Frankfurt"
Pros: "United airlines a319 was quite shakey felt uncomfortable whereas the Lufthansa connection with the a320 was way better only a bit shakey but felt comfortable and enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "United airlines connection was quite bad. Was 15 min late but didn't really mind it"
Pros: "Extremely nice staff starting from check-in and till the end of flight, everything was perfectly on time"
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "Big airplane and therefore no turbulence. Food was good for airplane food. Boarding was pretty fast considering the number of people. Didn't have problems finding overhead luggage space"
Cons: "Sat next to the bathroom and therefore repeatedly got bumped by people and carts as they passed. The stewardess was polite but had an obvious fake smile pasted on her face. A bit more honest facial expression would have been more comfortable."
Cons: "Food Crew appearances"
Pros: "Traveling in early February, the plane was relatively empty. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "No entertainment on flight! Smallish plane."
Cons: "It took 90 (ninety!) minutes to get my suitcase at SFO. What a shitty, second-world airport. "Love" the crt tvs playing awfully low-quality "welcome to the US" videos. Way to showcase Silicon Valley's technical advances. Laughable."
Cons: "Lufthansa cancelled my flight on November 23rd a few hours prior to departures because their pilots went on a strike. When I called and asked if they would rebook me the lady on the phone said that she could rebook for a trip that had two layovers from 2pm(Prague time) to 8:30pm(NYC time) for the 24th of November (thanksgiving). When I asked her if there was anything else she said that was the soonest flight she could find. When I checked my self I found and booked a flight for the 23rd. When I called back they refused to give me a refund."
Pros: "Seats were really good despite the fact that it is economy class. Food was very good، and entertainment was a blast، watched 4 movies during the flight. The crew members were really polite and helpful. Lufthansa will be a choice for me for any further travels."
Cons: "My trip from Washington to Amsterdam wasn't pleasant at all، because it was operated by United Airlines، which I do not recommend or even try again."
Pros: "I was very pleased by this flight, all good or excellent."
Cons: "I have nothing negative to say."
Pros: "J Lufthansa , this was my first flight with your airline and `i am glad to say that it was an excellent experience.\The crew was superb and the comfort of both the regular coach and coach comfort was excellent. `I would highly recommend you and will return as often as possible."
Pros: "the upgrade to plus. we will be selecting that option in the future now that we have experienced it. thank you"
Cons: "There was a 4.5 hr delay due to "technical difficulties". We had to switch planes. This caused me to miss my flight to Tucson out of LAX. When I asked them to help rebook my flight that Lufthansa caused ne to miss, i was told there is nothing they can do. Seeing as how that last flight was not booked through Lufthansa. This is absolutely ridiculous! There were no Lufthansa flights into Tucson so I had no choice but to go with another carrier! So after a long grueling 4.5 hr delay and 11+hr flight now I have to stay in a hotel because my flight out via Southwest was the last one out for the day and The only nonstop flight departs at 12:35 tomorrow. Thank goodness Southwest booked me on another flight at no charge! They take care of their customers. It was not their fault I missed the flight. It was dur to the "techincal difficulties" with Lufthansa. And every hotel within a 8 mile radius has been sold out. And at one point I booked online only to find out upon my arrival, after paying for taxi and havig him leave, thAt this hotel is sold out and should not have allowed me to book online. So after landing at 7:15 pm at LAX I am just now in bed at a hotel after searching and paying for cabs etc. And on my dime! Absolutely ridiculous !!"
Pros: "All!"
Pros: "All was very proffessional"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine and comfortable"
Cons: "It was extremely disorganized at the check-in counter. There was just a mass of people that eventually led to some lines but it wasn't even clear where the line started. In addition, the boarding itself was a mess and the plane departed late. There were no self check-in kiosks with baggage drops so people could have another option besides going to a counter and there wasn't anyone monitoring the line to make sure it was an orderly process. We were early so there wasn't an issue with waiting per se but rather with the process itself."
Cons: "We were in economy class. It looked like the seats my wife and I were in were smaller than the surrounding seats. The seat I was assigned was also more narrow than the one my wife was assigned. I am tall, and could not move my legs for the trip. Also, the seat controls were on the inside is the seat. I could not move at all without turning on the overhead light or screen."
Pros: "Service from Chicago to Munich excellent! Air Dolomiti flight crew superb. All cockpit crews competent."
Cons: "Poor attitude and service in US from United flight attendants."

When boarding started, it was like refugees rushing to a life boat. Everyone was rushing to the front. Only one KLM staff standing there saying "... now is this group, yours is next,,,, we will call it out...." While he stopped some travelers, he did allowed some others passed without even checking their ticket. They have all the digital gears, and the screens to show the current boarding sequences, why don't they just use that. For some of us that did not have a excellent hearing, it was hard not trying to get closer to understanding what is going on.

Delayed flight, it is noticeable airplanes noticeable aged

A heads up on filling in an e-ticket prior to flight departure would have been helpful.

Wrote in the previous message. Poor. Delayed flight and lost working day. 4.5h together to rebook the flight, get the hotel voucher, get to the hotel and check in. Insanely slow.

being a flight attendant and using spécial fare I apreciate being treated equally to the other pax, the fact that the crew, when I informed them of my status, went to check if I had a good seat ( no one beside me, to be able to get good rest.) Those are important gestures towards the person. I look to more flights with KLM

Nice flight but from Entebbe to Amsterdam they didn’t get me what I requested for the baby.

Travelling from Nigeria was a nightmare. Those thugs at the airport gave my husband and i hell because we had our boarding passes on our phone. We had to keep bribing and begging them to let us through. It is the worse travel experience I’ve ever ever had in my entire life. And I travel a lot

They canceled our flights that went on anyway.

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Cons: "Allow business passenger to use front bathroom."
Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."
Pros: "Usual faultless KLM experience"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Slow in refuelling, got us delayed for 40-"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic & therefore delayed take off a little Receiving luggage was slow -@ 35 minutes from landing to luggage claim, so actual arrival was considerably later for those meeting me"
Pros: "Newer plane, crew was amazing, seats were adjustable"
Cons: "Not being 1 hour late"
Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and the food was really good."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."
Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."
Cons: "The overall travel was good, no wifi and the entertainment system had a faulty headphone connection, and no place to charge devices other than through a USB port"
Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Pros: "The crew was efficient. Flight left on time. Food and wine served."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."
Cons: "No outlets to charge digital devices, and need more bathrooms on board. I was able to sleep most of the 11 hour flight so I did not take advantage of the entertainment."
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "It would be helpful for short people to be able to adjust the head rest lower on the seat. More recent released movies would be helpful. More leg room. Not charging more money to choose seats."
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival."
Pros: "Booked extra room seat which gave me good room for seating"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
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."
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pros: "Ground staff at Manchester very helpful"
Cons: "Information on KLM website and flight status said 50 minutes delay and was never updated with the true status. 3 hours before we took off. KLM blamed the fog at Manchester but to be honest most other flights seemed unaffected. Put up in an IBIS hotel and fed substandard food and shitty hotel room with an Aircon unit that clunks into action every 30 seconds keeping me awake. It's external so I can't switch it off. Being given a 10 Euro voucher for food at the airport when most food and a drink will cost you 12 to 15 euros."
Pros: "Easy Boarding"
Pros: "Professional, welcoming and very friendly crew, well-maintained aircraft, comfortable seat and good food. Keep up the good work, KLM."
Cons: "Not much to comment on here."
Pros: "The included snacks and the seats."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
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."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "."
Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delay"
Cons: "I missed my flight because of MU"

Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
