Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"Qatar is undoubtedly the best airline in the world. Very impressed with their all around service and customer care."
"The airport staff of Qatar airlines was UNFRIENDLY and UNHELPFUL. They all acted like we were bothering them. They gave no help in moving from one station to another. In general they gave an extremely bad first impression of Qatar airlines!!"
Pros: "I would have appreciated that with ALL required paperwork, my stay at check in point would have lasted a little less than two hours I spent standing and waiting for a feedback."
Cons: "Updating clients and offering a seat if it’s a long wait could have improved the situation. It is on reception that the business gets its impression. Thanks."
Pros: "Everything great!"
Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."
Pros: "Service was okay."
Cons: "Could have been more customer focused!"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Food wasn't great"
Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Cons: "The Entertainment screen wasn’t working"

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"

Pros: "Very comfortable flight and helpful crew"
Pros: "The service of the cabin was great!"
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing. We boarded close to a full hour later than scheduled and the boarding process was very slow."
Cons: "Did not make this flight."
Pros: "decent leg room. the staff was accommodating"
Cons: "the brea was har. some of the food was overheated thus making it hard to eat"
Pros: "Fantastic service, very friendly staff who are always happy to help"
Cons: "Should have internet free of charge in flight"
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: "The change of my flight schedule for the entire journey was done without giving me any options (departure flights from origin and return). It would have caused me inconvenience if the change of time does not allow me to adjust my plans."
Pros: "Great flight. Everything was good. The only very small issue is hey offer WiFi but even if you pay the allocation of data make you feel like you living in the 1990. 10 meg free and 300 meg for a whole flight is a complete joke, especially for USD 30. They could manage protocols but give a reasonable service."
Pros: "Qatar is a reliable airline."
Cons: "No matter how many times I have traveled with Qatar (5 international flights in the last year); I still do not receive any benefits such a priority boarding or upgrades."
Pros: "The service from check-in till landing was on the ball and superb. They were friendly and eager to assist with everything. They have the latest movies and shows to watch on their in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "great crew and food."
Cons: "being charged excess baggage when one suitcase weigh under weight. Having to wait at the terminal for a hour and a half because of bad weather -- not the pilot's fault"
Pros: "The cabin crew and Doha airport staff are absolutely great at thinking about customer comfort. Experienced it in the Business Class lounge as well as on the flight!"
Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"
Cons: "They lost my bag and that’s disappointing considering I have my bank account details in that bag. Very disappointed by this"
Pros: "Stopover in Doha fun. The people are so friendly."
Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"
Pros: "Good in-flight service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Cons: "Food is not fresh and seats are not comfortable. Very little leg room."
Pros: "In general the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The dreamliner is a little tight in relation to the B777. The Kosher meals very all the same for breakfast lunch and snack"
Pros: "Upgrade to 1st Class. Very grateful for the experience. Outstanding service. Very professional crew. Awesome recliner seats. What's not to like about premium service?"
Cons: "Too short leg :( This upgrade would have been awesome for the longer leg of the trip (for a much needed decent sleep)."
Cons: "1. rude staff - i stood in Jburg at the counter for 13 minutes (i checked my clock) while 8 staff ladies spoke among themselves in a myriad of languages. FINALLY one lady asked if i had been helped! I said no and she was clearly less than thrilled to be the one to help with my question. i literally just wanted to ask if my seat assignment was a window, middle or aisle, but it was like i was the bane of her existence and i interrupted their social hour. On my outbound flight (ORD to DOH) I also watched three staff members be beyond rude to guest after guest at the check in counter regarding baggage when they came forward to "re check-in" which was a new requirement for most people. There was a lot of general confusion on behalf of the consumers and the staff was NOT the least bit patient or helpful in explaining what they needed from us or why this flight had different procedures than normal. I still don't know why they were so fussy about baggage and made everyone re check in at the gate in fact. And they didnt do it to my baggage so i have no idea why they were so rude to some and completely left others alone. (didn't seem to have to do with size, carrying of electronics, i don't know?) 2. the physical flight - you changed my original flight time to something that was REALLY close for my connection from DOH to CDG, so you instead bumped me to a later flight without consulting me. it would have caused me to miss a connection flight I booked separately through EasyJet from Pairs to my home airport BIQ. I had to figure that out on my own. RUSH through Doha to make my 35 min connection and barely was allowed to board my onward Paris flight by the Qatar gate staff which was only cutting it close as a result of YOUR changes! Yet i was treated like i was somehow "late" and wouldn't be able to board ??? Again incredibly rude staff. Subsequently you lost my luggage because the connection was too tight. i landed on Friday and it didn't catch up to me until Tuesday. Not one person has said sorry or offered any restitution. And this is honestly what upsets me the most. I doubt anyone even reads this. pathetic. I work for a travel club and since Monday (so in 4 days) I have actively reached out to 4 clients to cancel and re-booked their Qatar airways flight to another carrier to get them to Johannesburg. They will be doing the same safari experience I did, but I will NOT recommend and book my clients on Qatar after my experience."
Cons: "You canceled our flight in the last minute. we were starting our holidays and missed one day included the booking reservation. We didn't get any refund regarding this issue. On the other hand, i booked my special meal and never received it."
Pros: "This flight had one of the best selections of movies I've seen on a flight.....a damn good thing given the 15-hr duration of the flight. I had so many screaming babies around me that the flight attendants helped me to move to another part of the plane. They were incredibly sympathetic and accommodating. Airlines from the USA could learn a thing or two from Qatar Airlines."
Cons: "Small seats (I'm fat, so this is my problem really)."
Pros: "The flight was on time, not full and the crew and the entertainment was excellent. Very happy with the experience of flying on Qatar Airways from Johannesburg to Miami."
Cons: "Everything was well, the food was good not great (even for airplane food) and the only other issue is it seemed like trash from our drinks and food services was picked up for quite a while or until we brought it to the flight attendants ourselves."
Pros: "landed safely"
Cons: "Had to claim bags at Doha and go through multiple security screenings to board connecting flight. At one point all the security was not functioning and we were packed up in lines. Barely had time to stop at the restroom before final security check where it was all so disorganized. After that check we were told that if we left we had to go through security again. Would have been nice to know that upfront. It was a madhouse going through that final security check and my husband's wallet was lost for a bit. No one really tried to help and we were told to move aside. Finally someone saw that it had fallen beside one of the counters. It was all horrible. Because of all this our 5 hour layover was a hassle with no time for food, etc. The whole airport experience was confusing and badly handled."
Cons: "The seats are terrible."
Pros: "Excellent in every way. Clearly a top tier airlines. I will choose Qatar Airlines at every opportunity."
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Pros: "I enjoyed the staff"
Cons: "The screens were old school and I HS a hard time getting it to work Also the sleep mask I received had sticky stuff all over it when I opened the package."
Pros: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."
Cons: "Because of poor connection, arrived for flight 15 min. before departure. Gate agent wouldn't allow us to board and wouldn't help us rebook. Offered no help."
Pros: "Seat space. Stevice. Terminal."
Cons: "Attendant was rude and never really finished service, never remembered any requests and consistently skipped guests when providing food or drink service, cabin kept oscillating between either too hot or too cold."
Cons: "We took off in a terrible storm with lightning striking all around the plane. Very rough, lightning which scared the hell out of both me and my wife."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "During COVID there was little attempt to distance passengers during security checks, boarding and onboard. Crew did not inforce mask policy. Fellow passengers were inconsiderate, loud, littered just throwing food wrappers and trash on the ground - crew did nothing."
Pros: "Not one thing about my experience."
Cons: "The alertness of the staff, the boarding process, the knowledge of the staff. Not breaking my luggage!"
Cons: "Nada, I slept through this leg and the staff let me be."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and loved the food."
Cons: "For economy class, nothing."
Pros: "The kindness of all people working on Swiss was very special"
Cons: "The food was not very special, but the chocolates were awesome"
Cons: "Children children children....."
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful. The wine was free and each seat had it's own screen with a good assortment of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "The food could be much better. Although coming from Sicily it's tough to compare."
Cons: "I asked the Chinese flight attendant in economy to please ask the man in front of me to put his seat up since the captain and purser had already asked us to do so in three languages The man in front of me refused to do so. She said she was going to start at the front of the plane and let him leave his seat back making it difficult to see my tv monitor. I thought that she should’ve said that it was time to put your seat up. It was frustrating that she didn’t support me and the request of the captain. Your seats are very uncomfortable upright when the person in front of you has their seat back."
Pros: "The BUD-ZRH flight was on Swissair aircraft, not on Edelweiss or another low cost feeder airline. Over the years, I have flown both options, and while Edelweiss is a fine carrier, Swissair flights are still a cut above. Contributing to the positive experience was the friendly agent at check-in at BUD."
Pros: "The food was actually really great and the attendants were super responsive/friendly! Even in coach, the seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Enjoyed the surprisingly good vegetarian hot meal, wine, and chocolate! (And silverware) Said to us they cared for passengers and the environment. A much better overall experience than with United!"
Cons: "Plane did not have a place to switch to the other aisle without disturbing passengers or crew! You need to move a tad bit on such a long flight!"
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "Hard to see monitor for films and to hear through earpiece."
Pros: "The plane wasn't totally booked and very clean"
Cons: "Too hot on plane, despite several requests to turn up air conditioning. Would be nice if pilot gave a few more updates as to why we sat on the tamac so long."
Cons: "It was delayed"
Cons: "I had paid a little extra to have a seat in the back of the plane going to Greece and returning also. I was under the assumption the extra charge would give me a seat with only one extra person next to me. On both flights to and from JFK I was seated in a row with 3 seats and not the last row as promised. Just wondering if a refund for the extra charge would be possible."
Pros: "The food was quite good and the crew was perfectly friendly. The entertainment choices were useful on such a long flight."
Cons: "It was extremely warm on the flight; consequently, I was unable to sleep. This was my second overly warm Swiss Air flight. After numerous complaints on the first flight, the temperature was lowered, but the second flight remained warm."
Pros: "Generally Swiss air was good"
Cons: "I ask a question if we will arriving late, she give me smart Remarks that we will be on time. No we were late 28 minutes my luggage did not arrive, I'm 4 hours from Warsaw, I wait for luggage which was lost and miss my connection do travel forward. I got home at 8 pm. She check my carry on and they lost , I have only bag with lipstick in there"
Cons: "Boarding terrible just one mass confusion, Flight was one hr.late as of today I am still missing my 4 pcs of luggage."
Pros: "Online check-in was easy, boarding was smooth, and time on the flight seemed to go by quickly. Seats were a little too close together in economy to fully relax but that's the nature of economy seating. The dinner was very tasty, crew was friendly."
Cons: "My seat-back entertainment system did not work, but I had not planned to use it anyway. For the other three members of my family it did work, but not very well. Fortunately they had other options they brought with them."
Pros: "Crew was always ready to help. It was a very smooth flight."
Cons: "I wish we could start watching the movies earlier and wish there was more selection for good movies. Flight was delayed but we knew that. I prefer that it‘s safe."
Pros: "Friendly service and food"
Cons: "Older plane with no entertainment"
Pros: "Swiss choclade"
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "Food was better than some other long-haul flights I’ve been on. Plane fairly clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment options more limited than Delta or Virgin, who I’ve usually flown intercontinental. Boarding in Zurich was a mess. No order to it and they didn’t start boarding until 20 minutes before takeoff. Nearly every intercontinental flight I’ve taken needs closed to 45-60 minutes to do a full board. Sure we made up the time in the air but the process to get on the plane was frustrating."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth. The crew was friendly and attentive. Even though it was a short flight, we each got a piece of Swiss chocolate."
Cons: "Like most planes, there was not enough leg room."
Pros: "The next best thing to the hard-working and kind crew was the lighting design. Meals were OK, and I was delighted that the vegan meals I ordered for my travel companion were right there as ordered. Not a common occurrence of late, I’m afraid, so I congratulate Swiss one getting this one right."
Cons: "Legroom is non-existent. This was by far the most uncomfortable aircraft I have ever flown on, with the possible exception of an Ilyushin 62 operated by Tarom in 1983. I felt bad for the man in front of me, with my knees in his back. That is, until he reclined his seat and put my video screen in my face. Not much to watch anyway, but it was impossible to lean forward at all. Boarding at JFK was rather chaotic."
Pros: "People friendly"
Cons: "Food was poor, really poor, no options for the children Headphone socket in the seat"
Pros: "I really liked the "About my flight" application on the viewing screens because it always gave me an idea of what we were flying over and how much longer we woulld be in the air. The food was excellent and I was pleasantly surprised that I could have wine with dinner or any time the attendants offered beveragess. The attendants were always professional and helpful. They all were fluent in English as well as several other languages. It was a nice touch when the attendant wore white gloves when he or she was collecting passengers' trash after meals and/or beverage service. I loved the cheese that was served at dinner."
Cons: "My seat was a little confined when I put my carry-on bag in front of me on the flight to Zurich, but it was roomier when I stowed my carry-on in the overhead compartment on the returtn flight."
Pros: "We received an upgrade to business class. The entire experience was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was delayed in taking off, and our gate wasn't available when we landed so we had to wait again, ultimately adding approximately 1.5 hours to the trip."
Pros: "Good food, ice cream and free alcohol"
Pros: "Swiss' Zurich Airport Business lounge is the most comfortable I've experienced. The flight attendants were professional, courteous and very helpful. A very enjoyable flight experience in business class."
Cons: "Airbus 330 seats are too narrow and the arm rests too high. I am about 5'3" and weigh about 150. I can't imagine what a taller and/or heavier passenger must feel like in these seats. Also I dislike the "nickel and diming" philosophy used by most airlines these days making people pay an extra $29 to reserve a specific seat. Give me a price from the beginning with a seat assignment."
Pros: "very professional crew, clean cabin, interesting choice of documentaries"
Cons: "it would have been nice to see a hostess walk through with water every hour, of so why is there no world news in your tv selection?"
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "insufficient AC during boarding endlessly screaming baby"
Pros: "Staff & service were super nice & friendly. In this day & age that airline travel is getting really hectic, it was a breath of fresh air to see friendly & dedicated staff who clearly enjoy what they are doing."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Cons: "We had almost 8 hours delay"
Pros: "easy check-in, fast boarding, one of the few airlines still offers free refreshments on board"
Cons: "not sure of where to queue for boarding for many people"
Pros: "Quick flight, good service"
Cons: "Old airplane crappy entertainment system"
Pros: "Traveling with 3 kids, Swiss kept our seats the same, had our special meals sorted, crew was kind and courteous. Entertainment for everyone."
Cons: "Overnight flight lights too bright, economy seats very narrow (and that's all we ever fly), it was extremely difficult to sleep."
Pros: "The food was good and I enjoyed the Swiss chocolates."
Cons: "The Seats were real cramped and the entertainment system was outdated"
Pros: "Was all great as with other legs...will fly again"
Cons: "Seats seemed smaller but do need more entertainment options."
Pros: "Overall product fine, food excellent"
Cons: "Quality of seats. Overall every class seems to have same seats in Business one middle seat free. Does make for comfort of the actual seat. Virtually no entertainment, no head phones or such like. (3 hour flight)."
Cons: "There was a supposed difficulty with my entry in Europe when I tried to Check into Chicago. I thought that I had to cancel my flight. Swiss air representatives had to do much consultation, which took nearly an hour, while I was standing there the whole time. At the end, I was thanked for my patience and told all should be well and not even given a small upgrade for the distress this caused me. Traveling is disagreeable in general now, and personally, even moreso after this episode."
Pros: "Spacious and good food"
Pros: "the cabin crew were efficient and very pleasant."
Cons: "Seats not particularly comfortable, video system glitchy, film selection ok, not great. Food was airline food, not much you can say there. The connection gate staff were rude and forced me to check my hand luggage (even though I am disabed and first to board), which had all my medicines in and my computer. The flight wast full and didnt see any other bags gate checked, and there was a bunch of room in the overheads, they werent full. Then to add salt to the wound when we arrived our luggage was dripping water (and it wasnt running at our destination it was at the connection) several clothes were ruined or needed cleaning. As I was on the way to my fathers funeral this was an added pressure that I didnt need."
Pros: "I was as comfortable as I could be"
Cons: "I was ill returning to New York , but I was blessed that no one was sitting next to me . The crew was as helpful as possible"
Pros: "movie was a holocaust film for yom hashoah"
Cons: "crowded food pretty bad late"

Pros: "Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "The check-in was stressful and congested."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was too warm"
Pros: "No issues"
Cons: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Very uncomfortable ride. Everything else was good but it’s becoming hard to fly this way."
Pros: "I didn’t like anything. The plane wasn’t on time for the connecting flight so I lost my transit."
Cons: "Flight coordination should be better"
Cons: "Food is not great and the flight was delayed by an hour"
Pros: "The service onboard the flight was good as usual. Nice and attentive crew, and tasty food as well."
Cons: "Boarding took too long. The ground crew had all the passengers line up in front of the gate, and wait for about 30 minutes before we were allowed to board. No explanations were given for the delay. The entertainment service needs updating. There didn't seem to be a lot of new movies from the last time time I flew the airline over two months ago."
Pros: "Care from the crew and consideration"
Cons: "Flying out of the Istanbul airport was horrible."
Pros: "flight departed Jhb on time and arrived in Istanbul a few mins earlier than scheduled"
Cons: "1.cabin temperature varied from cold to very warm 2.I asked the cabin crew for a blanket but they forgot about it 3.I ordered a whisky with ice - was given half a tot with 2 small blocks of ice 4.only one person was serving drinks and food on my aisle so it was very slow service (other aisle had 2 crew serving)"
Pros: "Noise cancelling headphones make the long flight a lot more bearable and relaxing. I like HOW they build the menu even though i have allergiee ane cannot eat everything. Crew all had good attitudes which is nice."
Cons: "Late to board, slight cluster due to that. Being on time with connecting flights is apparently too ambitious."
Pros: "It was a traumatic flight"
Cons: "The security check in Istanbul was humiliating and I haven’t received this kind of check in my life specially in a connection flight! In a disturbing way the check was in the gate only and includes separation between man and whomen then examination of our bodies with human hands , opening our bag , no shoes etc."
Pros: "Rapidly becoming my airline of choice. Great service, comfortable and on time. Relatively new fleet and not cramped. Puts other national carriers (including BA) to shame"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, on time and good service"
Pros: "The food was good and the staff were nice"
Cons: "The seats are very small and extremely discomfort for overseas flight"
Pros: "No complaints about the plane, staff etc and its probably no worse than any other airline"
Cons: "Long overnight flight in Economy Class, little legroom. As I am larger than average and find it hard to sleep on flights, the cramped conditions were extremely uncomfortable"
Cons: "At gate sign advertised their lie flat beds in business.. we were on business. No lie flat beds!"
Cons: "No gangways."
Pros: "I'm 6 ft 2. Legspace was adequate, and no silly boxes under the seats like other airlines that obstruct your feet. Great entertainment systems - modern, good selection. Food and staff excellent."
Cons: "Their online checkin systems could operate a bit more smoothly. At one point, I had to go in in person, because the online checkin site had an already past flight from their codeshare partner SAS showing up as the next flight, and I couldn't perform online checkin as a result."
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "I was on the phone for 4 hours, went to Turkish office in New York City (they didn't agree to see me), called various sales offices without obtaining a resolution. The only option I have is to lose the full fare of this ticket."
Pros: "After your bags are delayed 3 days, it's hard to like anything about an airline."
Cons: "Tracking my luggage was a nightmare. No one had any idea where it was for 3 days. When my bag finally arrived, the exterior was severely damaged. Also, the fight crew is rude and unfriendly. If I can help it, I will never fly Turkish Airlines again."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"
Cons: "The 2 flights were delayed, I went to my work late Both bags were broken"
Cons: "I had an isle seat and the isles were so tiny that everytime someone walked by to use the restroom, they would wind up bumping or brushing against me..... So that woke me up about 20 times as well as the crew hitting me with the drink cart."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Plane boarded on time but we sat in plane for 2 hours. Therefore delaying my flight and I don't have an international phone plan, so I either had to pay for Wifi to let my family know my flight was delayed or not contact them at all. I wished they would have given us complimentary wifi due to their delay."
Pros: "The flight was quite comfortable. We lucked out with only a partially filled flight leaving extra space to sleep. Service was friendly and the food was excellent! I was fed twice on my 9hour flight and once on my 4hour flight. Great in flight entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "the staff was so polite and helpful thank you"
Pros: "Unfortunately they do not use their best aircraft on this route, still good experience and surprisingly good food. On time and perfect service."
Cons: "Seats only average as far as comfort and room, and no personal screens for entertainment (unlike the route Athens-Istanbul, which is the same length as this one, Istanbul-Bari)."
Pros: "The flight took off and landed as scheduled. Boarding was quick and without any hassle. Food was served with in an effective way, and in a friendly manner. Food and drinks were of a good quality and passengers were taken into consideration. Thank you very much."
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about. I did not at any time feel disappointed about anything."
Pros: "Kind and professional staff, smooth check-in procedures, comfortable flight."
Cons: "I guess this is not related to the TK airlines itself, but once passengers check in and about to board, there is not toilet, so if you need that facility, you have to go out and through the security screening again."
Pros: "Service and food - real silverware"
Pros: "Food and Crew"
Cons: "The fact that the boarding was by bus and not through a sleeve detracts from the process."
Pros: "The plane ride was very smooth. The attendants were kind and helpful."
Pros: "I enjoyed the flight to Istanbul but on the return flight they told me at the exit door of the plane that my stroller for the kids will be in baggage claim. The stroller was. It in baggage claim, the Turkish airline representative could not help or prove de a phone number for me to contact somebody indicating although she has the Turkish airlines uniform she works for swissport. 90 minutes later they said they might send the stroller to my house if found and that I may have to cover the cost as Turkish airlines will not....... terrible service terrible experience and I will never fly with Turkish airlines again"
Cons: "you can't recline your seat a bit backwards to get a nap. booked luggage is treated with absolute contempt."
Cons: "the kosher food was poor"
Pros: "Food and entertainment options are good"
Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"
Pros: "Entertainment system is excellent, food is solid and plentiful."
Cons: "I've flown Turkish a few times before, and they're generally pretty good for the price. This trip was different. Despite Turkish Airlines policies outlined in their "Customer Rights," I received no notification that the flight was delayed 3 hours, and there was no notification at the JoBurg airport until you go to the counter to check in. JoBurg staff - which are Menzies third-party contractors, not Turkish staff - were disorganized, uncommunicative, and unhelpful. Only one person at the check in desk seemed to have authorization to make any changes, so all other agents were running back and forth to speak with him, and not communicating with passengers. It took over an hour to get clarity on the situation and rebook my connecting flight to Washington for a different flight 8 hours later. The only compensation offered was one meal voucher worth R100 (roughly $7). They would not even look at other Star Alliance flights for early arrival in Washington, and said they were not authorized to consider upgrading my ticket. When I called the Turkish customer service, they essentially said "What do you want us to do about it? You have to submit a formal complaint." Boarding was totally disorganized. In theory there are boarding groups, but after business class and all the high-ranking loyalty members, it's pretty much a mad rush. This seems to be the common practice for Turkish now. In general, Turkish has a great entertainment system on all their long-haul flights, with tons of movies - including very new releases - music, games, etc. They also provide complimentary kits with socks, slippers, eye mask, earplugs and dental kit, even for economy passengers. The meals are fairly good for airlines. However, legroom in economy isn't great. I'm 6'1", and had difficulty getting comfortable with my knees jammed into the back of the seat in front of me. On this particular flight, I was in row 18. The cabin crew were frantic, disorganized, and shouting to each other across passengers. One half of our row was served the meal, and the other half had to wait over 30 minutes to be served for some reason. By that time the vegetarian option was no longer available. Crew also had to run back and forth between service carts because they were frequently out of very common beverages (like sparkling water. And ice.), and on two occasions crew left a drawer from a cart full of trash sitting in the aisle. There were several times that crew ran carts into passengers - including once into my knee that was not in the aisle - and didn't even acknowledge doing so. They also stopped the carts in front of occupied lavatories, temporarily trapping passengers. So not terribly professional. While not specifically on this flight, the experience in Istanbul airport with Turkish Airlines' staff was awful. Zero interest in helping, rude and dismissive, and overall terrible."
Pros: "Todo estuvo bien. Me gusto mucho la aerolínea turkish! La recomiendo"
Pros: "I left my iPad in the seat back of my previous flight to Istanbul and by the next morning they had my iPad to me and Hungary! Very professional!"

Pros: "Food and tv"
Cons: "Crew was a little bit rude"
Pros: "The crew, landing before scheduled, wonderful, delicious food. Good pillow and linens."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour. This airline is extremely untimely! If you have a short layover, never book with them. Fortunately we had a long layover so it didn't hurt us"
Pros: "They fed you well, great entertainment for 11 hrs (didn't feel like it at all)."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing really. LH first class cabin is one of the best!"
Cons: "Seat I had was terrible .. not comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentive, I really like the food on Lufthansa"
Cons: "The movie selection was limited and dated"
Pros: "Kind and attentive crew, surprisingly comfortable seats with more legroom than I expected, even in basic economy, a ton of overhead storage."
Cons: "I checked bags asking “is the baggage delivery fast at Frankfurt”. “Much taste than Edinburgh” was the reply (Edinburgh is reeeeaaaaallllly slow). Sadly Frankfurt too is slow."
Pros: "Friendly service, actual food in economy class, just a small delay, overall a very smooth trip."
Cons: "As above, I couldn't check in online and thus couldn't choose my seat beforehand."
Pros: "flight on time-good sevice including food tha I ordered in advance and all my luggage arrived."
Pros: "The crew were very considerate. Also they have the best baby beds we have seen so far"
Cons: "The entertainment system was glitchy."
Pros: "Lounge was very clean"
Cons: "In a 10 hours flight Frankfurt to Atlanta only one main meal. Service was rushed job. My seat wasn’t working and Tv remote didn’t work."
Cons: "I didn’t like that I paid for premium eco omg and the airline changed planes and switched all our seats to coach and oversold the flight without eva n an alert or option to keep our original seats. Never again!!!"
Pros: "Everything was great. Not a single downside. Easy to follow announcements on connection, punctual and nice aircraft."
Pros: "Cabin crew hospitality and service were amazing"
Cons: "Was assigned worst seat on plane. Engine vibration on seat back"
Pros: "Best short/medium-haul economy breakfast I've had in a while. Flight was empty, so there was space to stretch out. Watch out for the seat maps – they seem to reconfigure the J/Y balance on this flight frequently, so your seat assignment may change. Such a lovely crew"
Cons: "Moscow passengers were awful as always. Arrival/transit at Frankfurt is a nightmare if you need to be somewhere quick – just walking and riding transit took 30 min. of my two hours."
Pros: "Everyone was very polite, seats were fairly comfortable. Food was about what you'd expect, but with more chocolate, which was nice. Enough movies to keep me busy."
Cons: "Spilled a drink and requested someone come by, only to have three people ignore my light and visible waving arms. Had to move my neighbor and find some napkins, by which time my seat was soaked through. While I was cleaning, someone asked if I had turned my light on."
Pros: "Quick flight, but still provided a sandwhich which was really nice since I didn’t have time on my layover to grab food!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "when seats recline in economy you can barely get in and out of a seat"
Pros: "The service couldn’t have been better! Constant supply of water, the food was good, and they have champagne in economy - always a win for me!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent, very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Food options were limited."
Pros: "Gave us snacks when flight was delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed Entertainment app didn't work"
Cons: "Short flight so no entertainment provided or needed."
Cons: "AS ALWAYS, LEG ROOM IS an issue on international flights. Screaming children kicking my seat the whole trip makes for an uncomfortable ride. Movies were slow to load and cut off multiple times for no reason."
Pros: "The boarding process is very efficient."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s people are mostly good. But there are some obvious opportunities for people to be more friendly. Also, LH like many others continues to serve cold rolls and cold butter on international flights. KLM warms the rolls! It’s the one small touch that would make Lufthansa’s meal service so much nicer."
Pros: "Crew was very professional, friendly and helpfull. Fantastic entertainment selection. It was a pleasure."
Cons: "The seat space a bit tight in economy."
Cons: "I had to endure 10 hours sitting next to an obese passenger, who was to big to fit into his seat and had to rest his shoulder and elbow over my seat. The crew couldn't do much and so I had to shift myself sideways for the entire journey in order to make space for this obese passenger to rest his arm into and over my seat."
Cons: "They had overbooked the flight and asked to reroute me. I asked if I would still be able to get to my destination at the same time and to make sure I would have a window seat. Everything from the moment I said yes was a terrible. They rebooked me twice on two different routes when I was in the air. Said a steward would meet me (never happened) instead I was running to catch flights on different airlines in two different airports. The entire situation was disgusting. The running was with all of my luggage. Because of the rebooking I was in the last row of 75 rows on a plane with an additional connection. Every flight had delays creating more chaos for the next flight. The only helpful airline in the bunch was Delta."
Pros: "Unusually rough and crowded flight though that is hardly the fault of the airline."
Cons: "In economy class, there should either be adequate room for average sizes people at the least or seats should NOT be allowed to tilt back."
Pros: "Crew friendly, good food"
Cons: "Cramped seating, can't select seat until checkin without paying (only airline we were unable to select seat)"
Cons: "I had problem with my ears - they were stopped and were hurting me badly. I approached first stewardess, she was very unpleasant and she told me that I had to go to the back of the plane, the one in the back of the plane was unpleasant too, she told me she was out of nose drops, did not offer me any additional assistance and told me I better consider not traveling if I have ear problem. Very poor service."
Pros: "I did Bangkok - Bogota and my bag was checked to my final destination. They have a 1 stop way to get to Bta, very convenient. Flights on time Nice meals"
Cons: "Low bag weight allowed, I got only 23 Kilos even it was such long way"
Pros: "Quick flight, efficient boarding."
Cons: "Seats weren't very comfortable, but it was a short flight. Our layover was too short and our passport verification process almost made us miss our flight."
Pros: "The crew was very kind and made their beat efforts accommodate our requests or help us with the issues we experienced in our seats. I was also pleasantly surprised by the quality and taste of the food served during the flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system in my seat was not working. The crew was very helpful in terms of trying to fix the issue, but unfortunately the system was not fixed. The seats were difficult to push back. We tried several times to push back the seat for the passenger travelling with me, however the seat would not go as far as everyone else's. Unfortunately the flight was not as comfortable for her as it was for the rest of my party traveling with me. For such a large aircraft, Lufthansa should consider boarding economy by seat section. For example, starting with the persons who sit in the back first and then forward. It would speed up the boarding process and alleviate any lines in the aisles in the aircraft. Last but not least, my parties baggage was not transferred during our quick layover from Frankfurt to Krakow. Priority should be given to passengers whose final destination is not Frankfurt. We found out that our luggage's remained in Frankfurt when our names were called by baggage pickup in Krakow. The attendant who was helping us was very cold and treated us as of we were the ones who caused this inconvenience through his tone of voice, as well as his short comments. Lufthansa needs to work on their customer service in Krakow. We were rushed by the agent and it seemed like he wanted to get rid of us asap even though there was no line. We needed to understand where our baggage was and the options available to us, especially because our baggage was carrying important items for my sister in laws bacholerette party that night. We left not knowing when we were going to receive our luggage or if it would even make it to Krakow that night. We called the Number provided to us several times during the Day, however the line did not seem to be actively monitored by an individual. The website we were provided to track our luggage offered little to no insight on the whereabouts of our luggage. We finally found out that the luggage had arrived in Krakow and would be sent by carrier. The carrier arrived late in the evening, right before we were leaving for the bachelorette party thankfully. Better communication in these types of situations would greatly alleviate the stress one feels when their luggage is missing. Aldo surprised that the airline doesn't distribute a care package (I.e. toothbrush, paste, facewash) to passengers whose luggage was left behind."
Pros: "The plan and crew were great"
Cons: "Our bags didnt even leave Detroit and the Spainish bag handling company was horrible. Didnt have luggage for 3 days in Spain. Our bags on the way back didnt make the connection. Whats the deal."
Pros: "We had a four hour delay and were promptly put in a hotel; Sheraton beds are very comfortable, I wish I had more than three hours to sleep."
Cons: "I never heard major announcements regarding the delay or the meal voucher (maybe not loud enough?). If they said it only once, they should've repeated it. It sounds stupid, but I waited for an hour at boarding before I realized the lineup is for meal vouchers and not the flight. Nobody approached or announced anything, I had to go and ask about changes and details."
Pros: "Lufthanza is very bad with customer service. They have a NO COMMUNICATION POLICY. Tell the customer nothing. Leave them in the dark."
Cons: "no announcements about a flight that did't occur for one hour later"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "My tv screen stopped responding 6 hours into the flight so that I could not watch it for the remaining 2.5 hours"

Pros: "Still loads of leg room in economy which is great for a tall person like myself."
Cons: "The food, dinner and breakfast from Johannesburg to Frankfurt was not very nice and not the usual good standard."
Cons: "The seat in front of mine was reclined in the already cramped space provided, twice as far back as any other seat I could see. Please look into the recline on that seat for future passengers. The crew hit my seat, repeatedly with their carts and did not remember to offer drinks to us as they pushed it by. The airlines should consider removing that seat as an option to passengers if there is not ample room for the flight crew to maneuver around it. It made for an unpleasant experience overall."
Cons: "Staff was extremely sassy and unhelpful when I had been traveling for 40 hours."
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Flight attendants not pleasant or nice."
Pros: "Very prompt, good food. We encourage trip very much!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"

Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."
Pros: "Premium economy service was good."
Cons: "Inexplicably, our preassigned seats were changed at checkin and we were put in bulkhead. This particular Boeing aircraft is pretty poorly designed. Especially the bulkhead in premium economy."

Cons: "Nothing to be honest . All positive."

Cons: "The flight was marked at almost 11hrs but ended up being only 9...not a negative other than it meant not spending as much time on board!"

Pros: "The sandwiches were simple yet just the right touch, on all four flights."
Cons: "old plane, tight and uncomfortable"
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."
Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed the plane didn't have wifi / USB"
Pros: "We love the flight all the way"
Pros: "10 hour flight - I was well looked after, regular drinks, the food and snacks were good enough and tasty. The in flight entertainment was good - latest movies and worked a great variety of tv, books and movies. The airplane was modern and comfortable"
