Movie choices are very limited, emirates choices were lot better

Read more about Qatar Airways

Movie choices are very limited, emirates choices were lot better

Not sure why everyone has to go through literally 7 different security check points (not Qatars fault) but besides that, everything went very smooth.

Service should have been better

It was hot inside the plane and the boarding was very crowded. But the seat comfort, and entertainment are spectacular

The worst people to deal with in gatar airport after I miss my flight they plam me and 5 people with me after the air plain delayed us from making to the next flight to the people off gater the forner the one you hiar to run the airport they do more damage don’t fly with gatar airlines

Cons: "The crew at check in was really inconsiderate and has given us false information! Despite of what documents were required and submitted I was not allowed to board the plane."
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent, food service very good. If the service is so good in economy, I can't imagine how nice it would be to fly in business class. I would fly Qatar Airlines all the time if the price is right."
Cons: "Economy row seats don't give you enough space for your legs between rows, but this is a systemic problem among airlines. You have to live with it or move up to business class."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Hard working crew members."
Cons: "No slippers for long flights."
Cons: "maybe they can offer more snacks on the plain"
Cons: "Delayed by 1 hout"
Cons: "Lights did not work, so diner was guessing whats was in the tray"

Cons: "Food."
Pros: "Food was quite good along with service"
Cons: "No entertainment or tv monitors - 6 hours of no movies!!!"
Pros: "Same again the crew were fab"
Pros: "It is so far a cut above the American carriers. There’s no way to compare them, because Qatar Airways is so far superior. The seats are far more comfortable and larger, the amount of legroom is far superior, you have much more personal space, and the craft is cleaner. Flight Attendants are fantastic! They provide excellent personal care, and are there for everything. They are supremely polite and courteous, and bring things in mediately. Very often anticipating your needs. This is what flying used to be like on United and American. But those people have completely forgotten what service is. Qatar is a 5 star airline. United and American, to my view, are 2 star at best."

Pros: "5 star service"
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."
Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"
Cons: "The flight from Sao Paulo to Doha was canceled which delayed our travel by 24 hrs. With the baggage being mis-labeled from Rio we almost lost our bags. the crew was not communicative and the entire experience terribly stressful."

Pros: "Comfort of the seat/bed"

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: "Food was better than average, blankets were soft and seats were comfortable. Good flight."
Cons: "They flight was moved up about 1 hr earlier. But no email/SMS/call etc. I totally could have missed the flight as a result! Why would they change it and not let passengers know?"

Cons: "N/A"

Fly Dubai flights (partnered with Emirates) are usually late/delayed on short hauls (eg RUH to DXB) and because it’s a 737 Max 8 or 9 it’s cramped. Pretty rubbish actually.

You should add little bit more snacks.

I wish the food tasted better.

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: "Got a promotional upgrade and was incredibly impressed ! Flying will never be the same !"
Cons: "The fact that my next flight is going to be economy"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "It felt comfortable."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Never had an experience where "pocket book, was weighed. After my carry on was weighed , my personal bag where I had my essentials and medications were included in the total weight of carry ons. I ended up paying for overweight. It was a big surprise for me. I came from NY and your agents approved . I had to pay,or discard."
Pros: "The cabin crew"
Pros: "Boarding logistics and flight timing were good. Being on time was a big plus. Personnel demeanour/service was good."
Cons: "Food (lunch/dinner) served was stale. I, as a vegetarian, had hoped that at least the fruit served would be good, but to the contrary. The touch-screen (Entertainment) didn't work well."
Pros: "Perfect from A to Z. Special thanks to the hospitality staff .. absolutely amazing service everywhere you go.. everyone is a VIP when you travel on Emirates regardless of your ticket type."
Cons: "The business lounge was full - couldn't find any place for my kids to sleep .. all rest areas and big sofas were busy. I paid money to get in the lounge because our flight was late and the kids were tired (I was traveling with two kids), but unfortunately I paid a lot of money to get in the lounge but couldn't find them proper resting areas."
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Pros: "their hospitality"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Roomy and good service"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "The great content in the entertainment system and the wifi. Bed was comfortable and the service was fantastic. I also really enjoyed the bar in the upper deck. The A380 is a wonderful machine!"
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: "Crew and entertainment"
Pros: "Comfortable. Good food."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess."
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: "Great flight."
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Pros: "I was upgraded to business"
Cons: "You did not consult me first and I was traveling with a friend"
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."

Turkish airlines is the best. Entertainment needs upgrade.

Cons: "They haven't all update information about covid update, workers had no idea about anything, rude and unhelpful I had to miss my flight because of their mess, stay at the airport for 4 hours to get my luggage back and get a hotel."
Cons: "No coffee no tea. Disgusting."
Pros: "Tea"
Cons: "Food and service"
Pros: "Everything with the airline was just fine. I’m overall very happy with the flight."
Cons: "The only thing that really made the flight not so pleasant were the really bad smelling passengers on board. People, please, take a shower before boarding on a passenger flight."
Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"
Pros: "I liked food, drink, service and entertainment."
Cons: "I disliked seat, a bit."
Pros: "Professional nice food"
Pros: "Inflight service was good."
Cons: "Seat was a little uncomfy"
Pros: "Elite member flying with my wife, no preference boarding for Elite. Were assigned to different group letter No good answers Dissapointed"
Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."
Cons: "Priority boarding was messed-up - no queue discipline was even attempted by the gate staff. The business class seats were uncomfortable and not comfortable to sleep in. The footrest was not long enough and the feet were dangling in the air. The blanket and bedding was provided almost 3 hours after take-off Worst of all was baggage handling. Our luggage was severely damaged. The handle to the suitcases was torn off. In addition the bags and the contents were wet when we received them in Boston. IT had been raining in Istanbul and it seems the bags were left out in the open. I've been trying to get Turkish to repair the torn-off handles but I'm constantly hitting a wall. I have filed a claim but the support staff sends extremely brief denials with no explanation."
Pros: "Pilot was operating nicely, temperature was acceptable,"
Cons: "Cabin crews should pay more attention to elder people,"
Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"

Pros: "Smooth flight in general, nice staff"
Cons: "Food used to be better"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Crew accepted to move our seats for emergency leave zone where there is more space for legs"
Cons: "Turkish airline has decreased space between seats for a non acceptable distance... you guys need to rethink it!"
Pros: "My experience on Turkish Airlines exceeded expectations. Boarding was smooth and the flight was on time. Service was excellent and staff professional. The crew was courteous but the hostesses could try smiling a bit more. Their courtesy was appreciated but it felt very methodical, more of an obligation and not spontaneous. The pilot did a great introduction and gave information about the trip. Also the plane toilets were clean compared to other companies. I expected to see a wider selection of more recent and award winning movies. Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again."
Cons: "I had a 4 hour layover. The airport is not organized. It was impossible to find any Turkish Airline help desks and personnel. I definitely would have expected to see more ground personnel helping travellers."
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."
Pros: "Pilot did a smooth landing both the long flights."
Pros: "We weren't seated together at first but they helped once we were on the plane"
Pros: "The crew, food, and choice of entertainment."
Cons: "Customer service in Istanbul was tribble . No help at all with any kinds of questions and issues. The airport staff were unbelievably rude and non responsive, as if they were there to turn off the passengers. Will never travel with any airlines that has to stop in Turkey"
Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"
Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."
Pros: "The staff!"
Cons: "The turbulence lol"
Cons: "It was so uncomfortable to mrest on the old chair the tray table won't fold in the arm rest."
Pros: "Window seat, decent selection of movies / shows."
Cons: "VERY small seats. Staff not very attentive."
Pros: "Great choice of entertainment, food relatively good for plane food."
Cons: "Crew was fine but not as friendly or cheerful as I'm used to flight attendants being. The leg room was pretty poor on this particular plane, there wasn't even space to put a small bag under the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Cons: "EVerything about this airline."
Pros: "Loved the service, comfort, entertainment, etc. All of this was very nice but it was also a short flight."
Pros: "Free wifi for business class HD movies + good quality DENON headseat"
Cons: "Terrible foods taste Zero hospitality crews Lack of food and deink service during 13hour flight"
Cons: "Choice of food on business class was very limited"
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Pros: "Exellent"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Overall it was a smooth flight except for few minor issues."
Cons: "I noticed there were one or two times where the host had a list of food specifications but the trolley itself didn't have the kosher or vegetarian meals as requested by the passengers."
Cons: "the delay in the departure"
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Pros: "Turkish Air has some of the best flight attendants in the business. The food is essentially gourmet (hot wrap, in this case), and the pilots are highly skilled."
Cons: "I tend to need the climate control to be on the cooler side, and 777's seem to run hot. Since there are no air vents, the warmth can be overwhelming. Also, the comments about leg-room, ... correct. I'm 6' 3" and 'uncomfortable' sums it up pretty well. For 10½ hours, being crammed into that small a space can be quite daunting."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "Todo estuvo bien. Me gusto mucho la aerolínea turkish! La recomiendo"
Pros: "All went right. Nothing negative that drew my attention."
Cons: "They are doing it all right."
Cons: "The airline has lost my luggage which has costs several hundred dollars worth of replacements and they have not been in contact."
Pros: "I liked Sofia airport personnel friendliness"
Cons: "No entertainment system, flight attendants are not very friendly."
Pros: "Food was much better than a number of airlines."
Cons: "bathrooms got messy."
Cons: "My bag was lot on my way to Europe and was delivered 3 days later. My claim for the expenses was not processed yet. My same bag was lost when I arrived to Abu Dhabi. It's been one week and I didn't hear about it"
Pros: "The flight attendants are very attentive. Enjoyed seeing them using team work. Keeping the passengers in line during landing."
Cons: "The incoordination at the BGW airport. Flight attendants should be more fluent in other languages."
Pros: "Everything"

I had such a wonderful flight with Lufthansa. The crew was great and I was able to catch some much needed sleep. I look forward to using Lufthansa in the future!

I flew Tourist priority, it was great. The Indian vegetarian food was delicious.

The seats are not comfortable for 4 hours flights!! but the leg room is OK .

Great legroom on this flight!!!

There is only one plug to charge electronic devices for two seats, and it is a regular plug so you need a USB adapter. Other airlines often have two USB’s per seat. The entertainment screens are a bit quirky and sometimes non responsive to touch. I had the same issues both ways on my trip.

Great flight no food or entertainment

Cons: "There was no in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "Nice crew great sitting"
Cons: "Boarding has always been slow with this trip.... disorganized"
Cons: "Food, entertainment program, pillows and blankets would have been nice,"
Cons: "Many delays boarding plane. No entertainment at all on a flight longer than 3 hours is insane. Flight crew are great, though."
Pros: "Not much went well, sorry"
Cons: "Because of bad logistics, the flight from CDG to FRA was delayed and therefore i missed my connection to AUS. Lufthansa personnel could have helped me make the second flight but didn't bother. I was rebooked on another flight through IAH which defeats the purpose of choosing a direct flight."
Pros: "Nothing, the crew was terrible with very bad attitude, the food is very bad and the seats and bathrooms were awful."
Cons: "Every thing should be replaced starting with the crew."
Cons: "First leg was delayed out of Belgrade so I missed the connection to Washington"
Pros: "The flight was fine, but there was not enough time to transfer between the gates in Frankfurt. That also did not give us enough time for our luggage to transfer."
Cons: "Longer transfer between flights in Frankfurt"
Cons: "The bathrooms really needed more care in this trip, VERY different from my trip to Brazil."
Pros: "The wheel chair service at Munich airport was excellent. She received us at the door, helped us find a connection after we lost our flight and communicating every step and giving us First Class service on coach. Thank you!"
Cons: "The brownies for dessert were terrible. Maybe fruit next time?"
Cons: "Lufthansa lost my luggage. Still waiting in my hotel."
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional, courteous, attentive, and the only parts of this experience that made this flight bearable."
Cons: "My partner and I orginially selected a window and middle seat. When we boarded the plane we were switched to the two middle seats of a 4 seat row. Honouring our original requests would have made a world of difference. If Lufthansa cannot do this much then I do not want to fly with them."
Pros: "I loves the pilot. He seemed to love his job and would make a couple funny jokes every time he spoke on the speakers and I never see that. Loved him and his landing was the only one not giving me any ear aches."
Cons: "Flight attendant missed couple lines of food and after letting them know instead of bringing the cart back they were tossing the entire plate on top of the head of the other passengers. One of them fell of right on one of the passengers. The second thing that irritates me is that one of the flight attendant approached me and was asking if I want chicken beef or pasta and I said chicken and she was like that is not an option in a very rude tone as of I am dumb or deaf of some sort. The other passengers also confirmed that they heard she did say that chicken was an option She could’ve nicely said it or apologized for telling an option that doesn’t exist. Instead she was giving an really bad attitude about it. Very irritated"
Pros: "I like the cree"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Legroom and recline of seats of the A350"
Cons: "Noise of engines at cruising speed louder than most of it's size USB outlet didn't charge"
Pros: "The punctuality, customer services and refreshments served were all great."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Delayed boarding for no apparent reason. The plane was sitting on the tarmac for at least 2 hours before scheduled boarding."
Pros: "Although the flight to Frankfurt was delayed for more than an hour they made special arrangements to get on time to the next flight."
Pros: "The people who work for Lufthansa are the nicest i’ve met, on par with Turkish airlines. The times for boarding and departure were respected, the flight was short but pleasant."
Cons: "The long lines. After check in and security, boarding could have involved less of a standing and waiting, with a bit of ahead communication that could be attained. For instance indicate the order of boarding, time until boarding, and place where the passengers from rows 50-70 should form ia line..."
Pros: "The staff on board the plane was excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed the flight! Food was delishious!"
Cons: "The ticket kiosk would not read passports. It was so frustrating to have to continuously try over and over again. With no attendant at the location and a long line, I wasn’t sure how to proceed. There were plenty of people having the same difficulty. It took about 12 minutes to occomplish a minut long job."
Cons: "Delay and food was bad"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Business class is a rip off. They are economy class seats. They don't recline. No entertainment whatsoever!! Horrible experience."
Pros: "good flight."
Cons: "Ran a timy bit late but staff was all very nice."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice they still give a snack"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nice crew, good entertainment, efficient flight"
Cons: "Did not have my gluten free meal available, even thought it was requested with my ticket and confirmed. Made for a very hungry flight."
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."
Cons: "I hated that the plane did not wait for me as I have been on plenty of airlines that have waited 5-10 mins to allow for these sort of things to be rectified. thankfully, Lufthansa and United booked me on a plane that left 5 hours later. they even bought me a 10 euro lunch. :), a pass to the , Luftanhsa lounge would have also been a good showing. I asked about this , but was gently denied. the help desk was gracious, which I appreciated. I had an entire row to myself on the United flight to DC, which softened the blow as well but the flight to Munich from IAD was great (2-28-18)"
Cons: "Sits are extremy tight"
Pros: "Lufthansa is extremely efficient, and the staff is very helpful all while being cheerful and kind. The planes are new and clean, everything was a notch above typical economy carriers. Well done!"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "No any intertwine entertainment at all"
Pros: "The attendants were very respectful and courteous, most of them"
Cons: "Boarding is disorganized, flight was delayed, baggage took over an hour to get."
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Too many stairs, far away from the connection flight."
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Was a short flight , so really I don't have any negative impression"
Cons: "The leg room was awful. I felt like a packed sardine."
Pros: "Very comfortable sleep Crew attentive"
Cons: "Food not worth the first class ticket"
Pros: "I like to fly LH on the BOS to FRA route as they are the only carrier to fly this route nonstop. Usually the service is quite good. The crew is attentive, offers water or juice repeatedly, gives you a warm moist handcloth before the mealservice to clean your hands. Check-in in FRa can be tedious becaiuse of long lines."
Cons: "LH experienced several strikes in the last two years or so. Once I had to stay an extra day, this time I had to cut a family visit a day short. While they handled the rebooking in both cases quite efficiently, not everyone might have the flexibility to change days so easily. It is also disappointing when one has to give up on a planned activity to make it back home on time. Movie selection could be updated and I miss having an actual newspaper or magazine to read on the long flight. Will have to pack my own oin the future."
Pros: "The service was good as they were making up for the entertainment system issues on the plane."
Cons: "Only 3 movies available on the entertainment system. Food on Lufthansa is bad."
Pros: "Please see above. Typed in the wrong place."
Pros: "Dinner was good fairly interesting and wholesome. I appreciated having real silverware, albeit only 3/4 of normal size. But for an 8:35 flight, most people would have already eaten. In contrast, 'breakfast' was a muffin, small cup of sliced fruit, and a granola bar. For a flight leaving at 8:30 pm and arriving at 10 AM, I would think breakfast, not dinner, would get the emphasis. Did get some free wine with dinner."
Cons: "$35 bucks per flight leg to reserve your seat seems rude and harsh. THey don't tell you til AFTER you book the flight that seat selection is extra - spendy extra... Rude."
Pros: "Even on such a short flight I got a sandwich. It was a salmon sandwich which I never had on any other flights. They usually serve cheese or ham or chicken in the Middle East. It was nice to have something different and nutritious."
Pros: "Flight from Marseille was delayed. Very tight connection time to make the SFO leg of the trip (30 minutes). A Lufthansa representative met us at the gate along with another passenger and took us via van to passport control and then to a terminal far away from the one we landed. She was courteous and efficient. We get to the gate in time to board."
Cons: "My seat was in row 56, second to last row. The temperature was very cold. I asked a flight attendant to make it a warmer. They tried but to no avail. The flight attendant mentioned that aircraft model (now 15 years old) has had that problem that has never been resolved. Solution was wearing a hat and several blankets. Not good for a 12 hour flight."
Pros: "Friendly, attentive crew. Delicious food"
Cons: "Price to bump up to next economy level was prohibitive"
Pros: "Short and Smooth Flight"

It was a Good flight

They canceled our flights but the flight went on anyway.

Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Pros: "Loved the smooth ride."
Cons: "Bathroom was pretty nasty"
Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled"
Cons: "The flight from Manchester to Amsterdam has been delayed which led insufficient time for me to transfer to HK"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, great crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed, no USB port and no entertainment"
Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Cons: "Don’t be late"
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: "Reasonable space in economy class seats"
Cons: "Staff hurrying us up 40 minutes before departing and threatening to take our bags out of the plane in case we didn’t board then. I had to leave my coffee and run."
Cons: "Head support for 6 feet plus people on seats would be good"
Pros: "The crew is really welcoming"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow and a bit too hard"
Pros: "Just the cabin crew being nice"
Cons: "Punctuality KLM is always late"
Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."
Cons: "I ordered Wheel chair for my parents but one of them didn't get it at all. When my parents were checking in for flight they asked the representative about meal selection and she didn't answer their questions properly and because of that my mom didn't get proper Hindu Vegetarian food on flight instead she got Egg omelet which she couldn't eat. She has to eat just fruits. My mother is a diabetic patient and she needs a food every after some time. I never had such a bad experience before with any other airlines."
Cons: "Flight canceled, poor communication from the airline to the passengers. Møre than 5 hrs delay"
Cons: "None of our 4 checked bags arrived with us. This was despite ample connection time (2+ hours) in Amsterdam."
Pros: "The constant smile conferred by flight attendants through the entire flight."
Cons: "The boarding was a bit disorderly. Lanes for zones 3 and 4 were not clearly indicated."
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: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"
Pros: "Flight crew very nice"
Cons: "Paid $70 for seat with more leg room and was the exit role to main entrance. No overhead space for carry on: broken food tray holder. People stepping on my feet. And gather in your space waiting for bathrooms. Window seat had no room for feet because of closed door"
Pros: "Comfortable and well laid out seat area"
Cons: "Food was a little substandard for business class"
Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."
Pros: "The attention and service!! Excellent. It was my birthday and KLM the head purser surprised me with 2 bottles of bubbles and a handwritten birthday card KlM and the crew of this flight thank you very much !"
Cons: "Nothing to say"
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."
Cons: "Flight departed 35 minutes late"
Pros: "Everything excellent. Comfortable seats in business."
Pros: "The crew were hardworking, responsive, conscientious and friendly"
Cons: "Really poor entertainment choices esp compared to my inbound AirFrance flight. Boarding was pretty disorganized and late."
Cons: "Crowded seating, wake-up for breakfast service two hours before arrival"
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
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: "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."
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Pros: "Boarding/unboarding"
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."
Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
Pros: "Was able to check in online, very convenient and easy to access site."
Cons: "I didn't go on this flight, unable to leave Seoul (to Beijing) with China Southern."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Economy was very tight! Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Overall very nice flight, even comes with free drink and snack"
Pros: "If you would like to learn more you can call me 628.600.8825 Very dissapointed"
