The flight was rescheduled by 6 hrs delay and no accommodation provided. also the connecting flight from India to Doha was minimum basic comfort level.
It's getting to the point in life that a flight in coach in those little seats for 9 to 15 hours is just too cramped. This was a packed flight with nearly every center seat taken. Good for Qatar airlines, which is a terrific airline, but its tough to ride in those little seats on long-haul flights
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: "Excellent services"
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: "The crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Food wasn't great"
Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Cons: "The Entertainment screen wasn’t working"
Pros: "Great crew and food. Nice economy class."
Pros: "Nice crew, 1 hr free WiFi"
Cons: "Significant delay on jetway, temps uncomfortable,"
Pros: "The facilitated transfer in Doha within twenty minutes"
Cons: "The repetition of vegetarian food menu"
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"
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."
Pros: "Nice,clean, efficient"
Cons: "The movie selection was not the best. There were a lot of choices but not that many newer popular ones"
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: "The overall experience"
Pros: "Food excellent. Great movie selection. Very nice dreamliner. No complaints"
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: "Qatar airlines had the nicest planes I have ever been on, not to mention the most beautiful and clean airport."
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."
Cons: "Screaming children; not the airliners fault"
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: "Overall nice"
Cons: "Same as above"
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: "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: "Boarding and ticket counter crew were good."
Cons: "Business class passengers were not given a priority.The food was mediocre and didn't compare to other airlines. The crew was impolite and attend to passenger's needs. Local American airlines pay more attention to passengers even in economy class. Will not recommend traveling from Mumbai to Doha via Qatar airways."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Hard cushioning and narrow seats on the 787"
Pros: "Good in-flight service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
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"
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: "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."
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."
Very clean and on point with the timing
Flight was on time. Boarding was relatively fast and the crew very pleasant. The plane was new and clean. Snack was O. K. , fine for a 2hr. Flight. 👍👍
Pros: "Definitely pick comfort plus on this flight if you can. You can walk around a lot more on this flight compared to other flights. Food was really good! Recommend the overnight flights...."
Cons: "More leg room would have been nice..."
Cons: "Great crew and flight! Cheers!"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and short"
Cons: "The entertainment system kept resetting over and over throughout the flight. And drinks were served late in a not so comfortable temperature cabin. But everything else was ok"
Pros: "Was boarded promptly"
Pros: "Food selection, service, and variety of entertaining entertainment options."
Cons: "More leg room for economy."
Cons: "B.S. all the Delta Boarding groups. Geez, have you lost all common sense! C'mon... I understand the ill/med conditions passengers. How about 1 kid, then 2 kids then 3 kids, w/ cataracts, bladder probelems, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Paper, Plus 1, Plus 2, Main Cabin 1, 2 and 3."
Pros: "Better than spirit"
Cons: "Very late and boarded too long before leaving the gate."
Pros: "Quick boarding, extra space to put things in front of you"
Pros: "Great leg room"
Cons: "I was next to an obese person who literally took half of my seat. That was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "All things connected to the flight were just right"
Cons: "Nothing was an issue."
Cons: "They ran out of blankets, earphones on the flight"
Pros: "We left and arrived early. Smooth flight overall just a great experience"
Cons: "We couldn’t have peanuts. Not really a negative but"
Pros: "On time. Connecting through Atlanta is quick and efficient"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Flight was on time, flight attendants were very nice and professional."
Pros: "Nothing in particular stands out."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed backward, took longer than usual to board the plane."
Pros: "Comfort Plus seating was good for the long flight, lots of choices for entertainment."
Cons: "Some crew members were rather cold in their manner, either disinterested or grumpy. Electric outlet didn't work. On screen entertainment touch screen was very difficult to use (unresponsive to touch)."
Pros: "On time! Easy boarding!"
Cons: "They had problems with both the wifi and the entertainment system. Super friendly crew further."
Pros: "We landed earlier than expected"
Cons: "Bathroom was very smelly"
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "No opportunity to purchase additional food"
Cons: "Older plane and seemingly frustrated crew. They had very little patience."
Cons: "Got put on standby despite having purchased my ticket over 1 month in advance"
Pros: "I am liking the new Delta terminal at LAX. The flight crew was nice pleasant and helpful. The pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The Delta Sky club was small and over crowed. If you go take the first seat spot you can find. It doesn’t get bigger. I have high hopes for the new combined lounge between the terminals. The flight itself felt like an older 737-800 while it had power there were only two and the two others in my row snagged them. I was in Delta Comfort and have to say the extra leg room isn’t a lot."
Pros: "We made it it was short 1 hour 11 min"
Cons: "I had a long lay over it was more then 12 hours"
Pros: "gate staff were great"
Cons: "plane cabin staff looked overworked"
Pros: "Crew was as helpful as they could be. Even though they didn't have much info about the delay, they answered questions and stayed calm."
Cons: "2 hour delay. Got a free bottle of water."
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly and borderline rude. I felt like when I asked for anything or was just up stretching my legs that I was bothering them. There was also quite bit of turbulence in the first two hours- I have traveled a lot and I felt like it took the pilots too long to find a smoother altitude."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Hotel due to missing connection was nice."
Cons: "Flight delays cause cascade of irritable passengers. Flight out of Phoenix delayed due to late departure from previous location. We were told mechanical reasons was the cause of the delay. This caused many passengers to miss their connecting flight in Atlanta. When we arrived after midnight, one gate person was attempting to help 50 people with morning connecting flights and room accommodations. The airline knew 3 hours prior that they would have tired, hungry, frustrated passengers. To then have to wait more than an hour in a line to get a bed and or a meal was too much for most people. There were other smaller examples of how Delta's staff or procedures were not customer centric. I will avoid Delta for travel in the future, and I am getting out of their stock."
Cons: "Our flight was originally scheduled for departure at 7:45 PM. We got an alert stating that the flight was going to be delayed but we were already almost to the airport when I received the first message on my smartphone. We received three additional alerts making our total wait time at the airport 5½ hours before we could approach the gate and board the aircraft. Seating in immediate gate area was not comfortable. Boarding was chaotic at best with very little control and guidance provided by Delta staff. The audio over the PA system was difficult to decipher much of the time. The only other available boarding status information was presented on the screens stationed near the gate and indicated PREMIUM the entire time during our boarding process and was never updated. We literally had to scramble through the crowd to get to the gate desk and get our boarding passes validated so we could board our flight with our group of passengers. Our seating on board the aircraft was thankfully good which is why I rated Comfort as Okay. We were saddled with one more delay after the flight left the gate and taxied briefly down the runway and then sat there for almost an hour. My suggestions to improve customer satisfaction based on my experience would include the following 1. Provide extended alerts for passengers travelling especially if the anticipated delay is known to the airline more than 2 hours before scheduled flight time. 2. Improve seating in the waiting areas near all Delta gates. 3. Re-orient all staff in proper boarding process and utilizing all available resources properly to provide clear and intelligible (not speeding) overhead audio messaging and current boarding status prompts on displays. 4. Maintain or replace audio equipment if necessary to help improve quality of audio messaging in all boarding areas."
Pros: "Friendly but efficient. Allowed me to keep my bag with me without a fight."
Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants and for the most part I could understand the pilot when he spoke."
Cons: "Wi-fi should be free. Put chocolate into the snack options."
Pros: "Was a nice flay , thanks"
Cons: "I like the AirFrance seats more than I like the Delta seats. AirFranxe has better entertainment too."
Cons: "No seat assignment prior to arriving at the gate"
Pros: "Everything else good."
Pros: "Drinks were passed out twice while everyone was waiting due to flight delay. There was one flight attendant that was awesome. I had asked for coffee due to migraine. I was stuck in the last row, back of the plane & had seen other people with coffee. The flight attendant told me no, I would have to wait for 3 more hours for coffee at breakfast. A smiling face showed up within minutes & asked if I wanted coffee. She told me that when she hears someone else say "no" that she thinks it should always be "yes". She was the African American flight attendant (wish I would have got her name). She brought me coffee, offered tylenol & checked in on me again later."
Cons: "Food wasn't very good. Most of the service was fair at best, crew, no smiles, looked irritable. Our flight had been delayed about 4-5 hrs so passengers & staff grumpy. Poor selections on the movies. No charging stations in the seat. This plane was very noisy so I was really glad to have noise cancelling headphones. Very expensive to select seats as it was bought through a non-Delta site to get the desired connections."
Pros: "I was traveling with my young daughter (3 years old) and wife. The crew was really welcoming and accommodative of us. My little girl got the Delta wings pin (including a second one when she lost the first one), and was able to visit the flight deck. Extra kudos for my daughter being able to see a female pilot! :-)"
Cons: "Made me check a small bag and let others carry on 2 and3 bags very rude"
Pros: "The passenger seated next to me with a sense of humor about our situation."
Cons: "For some reason when I booked my flight, for this leg of it, I had "get seat assignment at gate". Once I got my seat assignment I thought I had a window seat: however, when I boarded the plane, I realized that I was in the very last seat of the plane in the window position, but no window. I was crammed in next to a wall and claustrophobic the whole way as I couldn't see anything, couldn't recline at all because behind me was the bathroom, and the engine roared at times in my ears to where I couldn't hear the passenger next to me when we tried to have conversation as the engine was right outside my "wall". We joked, when we could hear each other, that we must've pissed someone at Delta off the last time we flew them. I have no idea why I had to get my seat assignment at the gate for this particular flight, or why I was put in the 'flying coffin' seat, but it made for a very unpleasant experience. Why even have that seat in the plane? Everyone pays a lot of money to fly these days and deserves better than that seat when doing so. just take those two seats out and give everyone else a little more leg room = much better passenger experience for everyone...my suggestion if Delta really cares about the quality of passenger experience."
Cons: "No entertainment and only pretzel and peanuts available"
Pros: "Flight delayed for four hours, then delayed another hour before we left. Delta won't let you pick your seats, so although we were 3rd in line at the gate, they put my family of four at the rear of the plane. I will never fly Delta again."
Pros: "Arriving and departing flights were at totally opposite ends of airport"
Cons: "My suitcase was damaged(torn through!)"
No support Poor vet poor food Poor service inflight
The seats are angled in upper class a bit uncomfortable and the Tv screen could be larger.
Virgin Atlantic should not be allowed to run codeshares without WestJet if neither company can provide check in or boarding passes - I was told I had to recheck my bags on a connecting flight which due to delays of the first one meant I had to abandon my bags at my first leg City to ensure I was able to run to get my flight as I only had 30 mins to make boarding. This means I landed in my destination without my luggage and am likely to never get it back. I will not fly on Virgin Atlantic again.
Dumped us at a stand and buses took ages to show up.
The quality of the food was terrible and below a normal standard, the entertainment screen kept breaking down, had to keep reminding the staff several times to fix it. The toilets were dirty, the seats were very uncomfortable, I think this is one of the worst flights I have been on and really shocked how Delta is associated with Virgin Airlines, who are of such high standard and a much better flying experience.
Delta were magnificent. All really helpful and a joy to travel with. Food was very nice and they kept me topped up wthe water, cold drinks etc. Heathrow was very busy that time of day and despite arriving early I needed all the extra time to queue to check in luggage and then the waiting to get through security was very long and only just got to the gate as it was closing. You need to aim to be in Heathrow 3 hours before take off, not two.
I was harassed by The security officials at Heathrow terminal 3. They were abusive rude and had no etiquette of how to talk to passengers. They kept all my stuff which is legally allowed here in the US. It was all under 3 oz. The guy in black suit literally said to me “ if I say one word they will take more time to let me go”. The check in lines were long took me 2.5hrs and then I almost missed the flight. The security people yelled at me and literally made me cry. I felt insulted and abused..
Your check in area was confusing. First no one was there and then we were directed to Delta ro check in. How was I supposed to know this?we were there for an hour before discovering where to go. I looked on line for checking at Virgin Atlantic but it should have been Delta. I wasn't contacted by email for check in durections.
Terrible service of rescheduling, which never happened! Well I will not recommend you for other because the service does not work!! Thank you
Ease of check in to boarding. Clean Aircraft. Food was of poor quality
Delays, grumpy service staff
Pros: "The service and patience"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Always helpful cabin staff and very efficient"
Cons: "Cery old aircraft ecenomy cramped (usually fly premium but it was an emergency )"
Pros: "I like that there are multiple bathrooms onboard."
Cons: "The rows are so narrow between seats that your roll on suitcase will not fit. You have no elbow room in your seat. People who live in England are very rude and would not let those of us seated in front of them to deplane. Too bad there isn’t someway to make people wait their turn."
Pros: "Crew was great !!!"
Cons: "Seating in upper class is uncomfortable and bedding is not fresh."
Pros: "Premium economy was perfect, smaller cabin with less people, great flight."
Pros: "Great crew. Very kind and efficient."
Cons: "American carriers seem to enjoy poor seat ergonomics."
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Cons: "Getting home 5 hrs later than planned"
Pros: "Nobody are better hosts than the British. Great service, lovely people."
Pros: "A smoothtrip run by great staff."
Cons: "Thé food was rather stodgy overall."
Pros: "Great movie selection"
Cons: "They need softer seats...had to stand half the time"
Pros: "Easy and on time boarding."
Cons: "Seats are extremely small. And when the seat in front reclines they are basically in your lap."
Cons: "You charged me for a checked bag. This wasn't made clear when I booked the flight."
Pros: "Plane was about 30% full so plenty of room to stretch out. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight left 50 minutes late because they'd lost the paperwork and had to get new copies.... not very professional! I can understand a delay due to weather or technical issues but losing paperwork shouldn't happen. The food portion was very small for an international flight."
Pros: "The onboard crew were lovely."
Cons: "Stood at check in for over 30 mins with no staff in sight. Boarding was a disaster. Staff was not prepared nor organized and the crowds were unbearable. Upgraded seats were laughable and not worth an extra $60. Food was mediocre. Entertainment would have been good but GE touchscreens are so old, they were difficult to work."
Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"
Pros: "Safety. Service."
Cons: "Lavatory was icky and other passengers messy."
Cons: "Food was hard and little stale."
Pros: "The flight crew from the mel to lax route were excellent. One was especially attentive to my 2 toddlers and gave me a bit of a break, something that has NEVER happened in over 40 flights traveling with children."
Cons: "I think something was broken in our section (mel to lax) as it was uncomfortably hot and the flight crew tried to get it cooler but could not. I’ve never experienced a flight that was too hot, usually the opposite. It was stifling."
Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff."
Pros: "Check in was very smooth with very friendly staff. On board crew was very welcoming and service was excellent."
Cons: "Aircraft configuration of the 787-9 was very poor with 9 seats abreast making the seats very cramped and very poor leg room."
Pros: "No one would update that the flight was delayed. They would not even communicate as to why delayed and would not put us in a different flight. Absolutely no customer service. Disappointed and would not fly jet airways again . I missed my conference lecture today as I was late."
Cons: "No communication, nor will they tell you why it's late . Nor will they move you to another flight even wen requested"
Pros: "The food was AMAZING. No, seriously. Everything we had was great."
Pros: "My first time flying to Europe! I love the service from the attendants but my seat mate made it uncomfortable to seat in my seat. Overall great experience"
Pros: "Smooth boarding process"
Cons: "Delays caused us to miss our flight from London to Vienna"
Cons: "Both my departing flight and returning flight had broken wifi on it. Very bummed"
Pros: "The crew of the flight were very sweet and helpful"
Cons: "When I bought my ticket I wasent informed that I needed a return ticket out of New Zealand before entering so I had to buy one super last minute and almost missed my flight"
Cons: "Everyone was delightful during the entire flight."
Pros: "The boarding and the overall flight experience was quite good."
Cons: "There were movie options such as Sully and Deepwater Horizon, which I think are unsuitable for flights. Overall, the movie options could have had more variety."
Cons: "I couldn't rank the food or entertainment as I didn't try the food since it was for purchase only, and there was no entertainment offered."
Cons: "They tried checking my carryon luggage because they said it was overweight and it would be $130. This is absurd, especially since it isn't going to change in weight by getting checked. I refused to pay this amount. The flight was also 3 hours delayed, almost missed my connection back to the states from SYD. Other international flights offer free meal service, you were lucky if you got water on this flight and had to pay for any snacks."
Pros: "Was a comfy flight thanks to not having anyone sitting next to me. If someone wouldve been next to me it wouldnt have been as nice because the seats are too bunched for international travel."
Cons: "My seat wouldnt recline properly. There were limited food options for non pork eaters. No outlets for power. How can you operate an international flight with nothing provided for those who need to charge their devices after some time. Not a smart design move."
Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"
Pros: "Very happy with everything"
Cons: "Air conditioning"
Pros: "Due to earlier late connecting flight into LAX, I assume, my bags didn't make it with me, and arrived two days late. But your man Fred from PNG Air was right there in POM Jackson's airport to take my information and somehow two days later I did receive the bags! Thanks! The flight itselfe was fine in every other way."
Cons: "Maybe when I checked in for the last two flights if your check-in agents could've told me more clearly about where in the system my bags were, it would've been less of a surprise to find out in POM that they were not with me. I did ask, but got answers like 'we'll try to transfer them' or 'your bags are in the system', which were not too informative, but maybe as complete as those workers could ascertain, I don't know. I would've liked to be able to check in on line in advance for this and other flights on this trip, if you ever decide to open up that facility (without a charge), it would be appreciated."
Pros: "free wine, good food, and friendly cabin crew? what more could you want? oh, a good variety of entertainment. I watched two documentaries and "The Lobster" a great choice, never would have seen it otherwise."
Cons: "The seat cushions are really hard and not very comfortable to sit on for a long flight. If you could get a higher density foam that would be great. my bum was a bit sore/uncomfortable."
The boarding crew was rude, everything was disorganized with lack of information.
Overall a pleasant flight.
Pros: "I liked how generous they were with food and drinks"
Cons: "Free WiFi could have made the flight a lot better"
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"
Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"
Pros: "KLM are our airline of choice. A great full-service carrier with impecable standards."
Cons: "I paid for the preferred seat .and i found that people beside me didnt pay anything when i asked them ,"
Pros: "The crews were pretty great!"
Cons: "The regulating of the temperature."
Pros: "Slow service."
Cons: "Better communication!"
Pros: "Seat was comfy and spacious for economy class"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was okay but could be more enjoyable if served with bread at start of meal."
Pros: "Nice staff and no delay"
Cons: "Instead of crisps maybe a bit of cheese or crackers"
Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and the food was really good."
Cons: "The air conditioners fan was bad and they had to fix it in London which took over 40 minutes off travel time...we arrived much later than expected in Lagos"
Pros: "The crew was great! The food was also much better than other airlines. And passing out whole bottles of water was much appreciated."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Pros: "The crew are amazing! Attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The seats could have been bigger."
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."
Pros: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Really was unsure of why I had to purchase a ticket as I was able to pick my own on the way to Billund"
Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"
Cons: "As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights."
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."

Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."

Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."

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"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. was not able to make connecting flight in Amsterdam. No flights from Amsterdam to final destination in the US. Lost one full day. Had to stay overnight. What a cluster mess. Will never fly with KLM airlines and would not recommend. Will spend a little extra money and fly on other airlines......very poor, disorganized, and horrendous flight experience. Buyer beware."
Pros: "Flight was delayed by over three hours."
Pros: "The service of the crew onboard"
Cons: "Entertainment not to many recent movies and the boarding process was a little bit confusing."
Pros: "- entertainment systen was OK (movies), but has no current news - food was good - windows can be darkened progressively"
Cons: "- Schiphol airport (AMS) is small, crowded, noisy; no water fountains; toilets are dirty and insufficient in number; SFO is much better - KLM boarding process was chaotic (not by group or row number), boarding/security personnel (4 old guys) didn't have a clue - 787 is noisy, chairs are uncomfortable (my back still hurts) and very close together, they also recline way too much - food trays not collected promptly - noisy babies on all flights - clearly not enough cabin crew for a full flight - no or wrong info by pilots on timing (crew are always lying anyway) - gate is all around the back at SFO (long taxi to get there) - they inserted people in wheelchairs during deboarding thus holding everybody up."
Pros: "early arrival,comfort"
Cons: "late boarding while standing around waiting for pilot to ararive"
Older plane. I have never EVER had a problem with seat belt length (I need to lose some weight but I am not excessively large) but my seat had a very short one - looked like it needed replacing.
My flight was cancelled and I wasn’t even notified!!! Horrible service!

Pros: "my borden pass had no gate no"
Cons: "Kept on the tarmac with no information on when we would be leaving. I fell asleep and the flight attendant instead of waking me up rudely moved my chair upright in a startling and rude way.

Pros: "Timing of flight routes"
Cons: "Sat on a pillow"
Pros: "The cabin crew was great at boarding and organizing the overhead bin space. Also, ground staff didn’t start check roll aboards before the overheads bins were full. There is nothing more frustrating than getting on after forced to gate check your bag to empty bin space (ahem, United at SFO)."
Cons: "Couldn’t get the entertainment to work."
Cons: "Start boarding with the last row, not the 1st row - so people settling into the 1st rows do not hold up the people trying to reach the higher numbered rows."
Pros: "The crew and planes were excellent."
Cons: "When we booked our flights the web site did not show us all the possibilities for return flights. When inn Puerto Maldanado we checked on line and discovered we did not have to have the 18 hour and 19 hour lay overs. We rebooked and were hammered with the $400 charges. We will not book future flights with your organization because of this deceptive practice."
Pros: "Entertainment system and new plane"
Cons: "Landing was a little rough"
Cons: "Last to board with a young child."

Pros: "It was a very short flight so not too much to go wrong."
Cons: "I had a carry on and a laptop case that fit under the seat. The laptop case has wheels and a handle. The gate agent said I need to check one bag, even though I could show that the laptop case was within the specs for fitting under the seat. When I tried to argue with her, she said, "One of your bags is going to be checked--which one is it going to be?" Bad attitude."
