Pros: flight was very empty, so crew very accommodating. boarding simple with so few
Cons: Thanks, good service
Pros: The entertainment is very good and it's a smooth ride.
Cons: Sometimes the crew could come across as brass and disappear for long periods. Also, how do you ever tell the person next to you, who's bigger than you, to try not to bump you every time they move. Definitely made for a not very comfortable flight.
Pros: Friendly crew
Cons: KLM lost one piece of my luggage
Cons: Head support for 6 feet plus people on seats would be good

Cons: Food was atrocious!
Pros: Everything was GREAT!
Cons: 1. Make duty free shopping possible. My daughter, that I was traveling withl, loved some jewellery l wanted to buy for her but it was not possible because a credit card purchase was impossible. 2. Provide entertainment on board.

Pros: The crew were very welcoming, helpful and charm, makes you feel easy
Cons: General interior cleanliness
Pros: That there were not many people on the second leg and that the plane was clean
Cons: The fact that we had an itinerary change with an extra stop (unannounced until 15 minutes before I boarded the flight) that delayed us by 1+ hours, that we were delayed from leaving Kigali by 1.5 hours and none of the crew could explain what was going on, that the rwandair staff was rude. I mean... It's Rwanda so I didn't expect much customer service (they are generally particularly bad by African, European, Asian or American standards) and I definitely wasn't impressed
Pros: Overall comfort and staff friendliness
Cons: Landing was a bit turbulent
Pros: The crew was very welcoming
Cons: We had a delay of 40 minutes at Kigali airport without prior announcement

Pros: Bag was sent straight to NY although Norwegian screwed it up. Am yet to receive my luggage.

Pros: Staff, ticket price
Cons: 6kg bags policy
Pros: The cabin crew were nice and helpful The plane left on time And arrived early, which was a huge bonus
Cons: Simply compared with other Trans-Atlantic flights it was mediocre in terms of what you get The seats were uncomfortable for a 10 hour flight, there were only around 5 movies to choose from and 5 TV programmes unless you wanted to upgrade (other airlines offer a lot more variety as standard). If you wanted refreshments they also cost additional, I was only offered one cup of tea/coffee/water, whereas other airlines offer wine, juice, soda, coffee, tea, water 4 or 5 times throughout the flight. Also compared with other flights I was not given an eye mask or travel toothbrush which on a long-haul overnight flight can make all the difference in terms of a good impression of the airline.
Cons: Having to pay for a headset & premium entertainment!
Cons: poor customer service. no assistance,
Pros: Staff was courteous and helpful. Considering how crazy busy the Manchester UK airport was in August all went smoothly, boarding was efficient. Seats were okay but not too roomy for a larger person.
Cons: The (only) tiny movie screen was at the front of the cabin and. impossible to see for most passengers.
Pros: The roomie seats, the USB port, and in flight entertainment
Cons: Child free section
Cons: More leg room
Cons: There is no entertainment, not really required on a short flight but nice when offered.
Pros: There was one stewardess that really made the trip feel less "restricted" in the way she would greet, talk, serve, and just being what I always experienced good international flight staff to be. I wish I was able to get her name so I can praise the airlines for hiring such a great staff like her.
Pros: The crew were lovely and the seats were ok.
Cons: Not a lot to Improve on to Be fair
Pros: Onboard crew , food
Cons: Work on timming (3 hrs delay),, plane is old do not reserved change seat , entertainment is not functioning
Cons: More movies playlist
Cons: They pretty much got it down right already. The embarking experience with the shuttle at the Hajj Terminal could be a whole lot better.
Cons: The flight from Manila to Jeddah was delayed 4 hours prior to departure, and then the connecting flight from Jeddah to Dubai was canceled. I was put on another flight, but my wait time for that connection was almost 6 hours.
Cons: Everything need improvement
Pros: Fligh on time.
Cons: The food on board.
Pros: Crew was attentive, friendly and helpful.
Cons: Flight was cancelled because the operational issues. No information or help given. Their airport procedures and practices make it extraordinarily challenging and stressful for passengers. We’ll never fly with them again.
Pros: Turkish Air’s boarding is very good and their food and entertainment is good
Cons: I have flown many international miles and many with Turkish Air. I have seen them go backwards as an airline these past 9 years. No more Premium Economy and very small seats, no more hot towels b4 takeoff, unbearably hot cabins, no good snacks on long flights, etc.
Cons: WHEN i ARRIVED AT AIRPORT ON JUNE 3,2019 TRUKISH STAFF TOLD ME YOUR FLIGHT IS NOT CONFIRMED BUT MY FLIGHT WAS CONFIRMED.I AM VERY UPSET BECAUSE I AM DISABLED AND LOW VISION.I THINK THIS IS TOATLY WRONG.20 MAY I WAS SICK TRUKISH AIRLINES CANCELED MY FLIGHT BECAUST I WAS SICK.
Pros: The flight and crew were excellent. Turkish Airlines business is always good.
Cons: The delay leaving Heathrow was not so good.... missed connecting flight in Istanbul and no availability on the night flight. Had to re-book with Air Astana.
Pros: The music selection.
Cons: Seating is very tight even for a petite 5’1” person like me. My boyfriend was 5’8” and he was definitely uncomfortable with the lack of leg space. If the passengers in front of you decided to put their seats back? You’ve lost even more space and feel closed in. Thankfully the aisle seat next to us was empty so we tried to stretch out a little bit without spilling into the seat entirely. Entertainment was eh. Two movies from the early 2000s (Alvin & the Chipmunks and What happens in Vegas) and an episode of Tom & Jerry and an episode of Modern Family but from Season 5? Not great if you’ve never watched the series.. About their hospitality... My boyfriend and I were completely disregarded and ignored by a stewardess with blonde hair and thick black glasses... Flight: DE2102 that left September 8th from Frankfurt to San Juan. We received our meals from her AFTER she handed meals to the people behind us - this was not the case for other passengers that spoke German, everyone’s meals up until ours was handed in order.. When it was time to pick up the trays she skipped us both times (with our trays ready in our hands to hand to her) - I watched her pick up the trays from the passengers before and after us. My boyfriend did say “Excuse me” but she ignored him - she probably would’ve paid attention if he asked in German.. She even looked at us as she passed by which blew my mind. Her coworker on the other side had to pick up her slack and was very kind enough to pick up our trays even though we weren’t his assigned aisle. It confused me because she was so pleasant with the German passengers but ignored us even when we made eye contact and smile for her attention.. I hate to say this because I give everyone the benefit of the doubt but to be honest I felt discriminated.. My boyfriend is German (speaks fluent German and English) but I felt because of my ethnicity (Asian) he had to suffer for that.. I felt terrible that he was suffering because of me. No one wants that for their significant other or anyone. Another occasion was when another stewardess was handing us our drinks. My boyfriend’s cup was broken and as she passed it over me it spilled all over my shirt. I did gasp from surprise. No apologies whatsoever.. She seemed impatient and grabbed the cup back over only to put another cup under it. I asked for a Sprite but they only had Cola or Fanta so I was totally okay with Cola “Cola bitte”. My German isn’t that great but I did hear her coworker ask why I gasped and she told her that it was because I was surprised they didn’t have Sprite - very untrue. I was shocked and I couldn’t respond. I have never been so disappointed in a flight and the hospitality. I am very forgiving if an incident happens once or twice, but when I see it happen in front of me over and over and over again? That’s where my tolerance unfortunately crumbles. I was on the verge of tears by the end of the flight. I hope I never fly Condor again.
Pros: The price, the schedule, the convenience of the airports they use. Online Checkin is a breeze, and they seem to be very good at making sure that luggage arrives with passengers. Because we arrived at the airport VERY early (2:30 AM) for a 3:40 PM flight (Eurail scheduling vagaries required this), we checked our bags at 6AM (the earliest possible time) and worried that they had WAY too much time to screw it up, but they didn't, and even if they had, we were going home! Thy did provide a bottle of water for each seat, which was nice. After a late start, we made up some time and landed only a few minutes late.
Cons: I know it's not entirely the airlines fault, but the boarding process for this flight was byzantine. first, the gate was in the 'basement' of the terminal and you had to show your boarding pass to get into the gate area and then you couldn't leave - and the bathroom was outside the gate area. Then we waited for 25 minutes in line to get on the bus to take us to our aircraft after the 'last call' for boarding announcement was made. When they finally put us on the bus, it was another 10 minutes standing still, packed in like sardines, until the bus actually moved anywhere. I have NO idea where the plane was, but we drove and drove, and drove around the airfield until we finally pulled up at our plane. They had two boarding ramps up, one in the front and one in the back, and just told us that low row number should board from the front and high numbers from the rear, but they didn't tell us what the demarcation was. With seats in row 31, it turned out we were over the wing, pretty much dead center, so it didn't matter. It would have been nice to have a frame of reference though. Aside from that, the food was EH!, the service courteous and efficient, but not friendly, the seats cramped, the no-extra-cost entertainment insipid (except for the audio portion - they provided a huge assortment of tracks by a wide variety of artists in many genres). With my (brought with me) earbuds, I gave up on any video except the flight map and just listened to classical recordings to drown out the screaming babies in the next row and provide a pleasant background for snoozing.
Cons: It took over an hour for the baggage to start coming out, and they were so disorganized it came out on two different baggage carousels.
Pros: I arrived safely
Cons: Almost anything.
Pros: Enough room between the seats. Very nice and helpful crew.
Cons: One has to pay extra money to get a decent video program. There were only two movies available in the economy class .
Cons: Complete experience and issue, resolution
Pros: Food, in particular the vienna coffee choices were imprewsive.
Pros: It was all fine, a bit cramped, but otherwise fine
Cons: I had only 40 minutes to board my connecting flight to Vienna, had to run through two sets of security gates and one immigration and a long walk - at 64, I almost didnt make it, and was the last one to board huffing and puffing!
Pros: The crew was friendly and particularly one of the girls was always giving her best
Pros: The crew was super friendly, food was great and entertainment on board was a great selection.
Cons: Was very warm on the plane as certain times and even at the terminal, which we could control the fan blowing on us.
Pros: I had to swap seat to be able to access the loo easily from an Isle seat
Pros: Helpful and Friendly Crew. Did their best to help during the delay. Able to take hand baggage on board (unlike our kid journey when forced to check it in at the gate)
Cons: Sat on plane for an hour waiting to depart, so delayed landing. The BA feel is no different to budget airlines now.
Pros: Extremely nice crew!
Cons: Plane was late departing causing me to miss my connection flight in Dallas and having to pay for a hotel room
Pros: Got from one place to another
Cons: Seats are terrible, no entertainment, and high expenses even for soda! Since when is BA in a race to the bottom with all of the other terrible airlines?!
Pros: The crew did their best to maintain morale.
Cons: Considering this flight was delayed two and three quarters of an hour, and as we remained on board with no refreshments offered except a small glass of water during this time, it was not a pleasant experience.
Pros: Staff were very nice, meal was good.
Cons: Cramped seating, full plane.
Cons: We continued our journey from Mauritius to Reunion, and given the quite small plane, Air Mauritius deliberately left one of our suitcases (and a few others of other passengers) behind. This was then only brought to our hotel the next day at noon (36 h late). Very annoying, as they didn't tell us beforehand (then, at least we could have packed some essentials in our hand luggage).
Pros: Food was very good.
Cons: Seats were cramped.
Pros: It landed safely
Cons: Delayed 3hrs with no information just apologies. Toilets onboard not clean and leaking. Several trays broken. Coffe/Tea served by pouring over customers rather than tray with cup. Safety information only shown when landing. Staff bumped isle passengers several times (me 4 times) with no apology. Chaos in serving dinner as special meals and vegetarian meals sent to wrong seats.
Pros: Got a notification well in advance that it would be significantly delayed.
Cons: IT WAS 13 HOURS LATE!!! Made me miss an important dinner, lost opportunity to sleep before an important day of conference meetings, and missed a breakfast meeting as well. Valuable time was lost due to this absurd delay. Seats were small. Won't rely on Air Mauritius again.
Cons: Due to a delayed flight the night before, we were rescheduled and consequently missed another flight. Nothing was done about this since it was a separate trip. We had to pay another $1300 for new airline tickets to get back to the US.
Pros: The entertainment selection is quite great.
Cons: The food is terrible. So is the crew. Something has gone wrong with Lufthansa latel. I used to prefer flying Lufthansa for their great service and meals. The food has become quite disgusting. The crew is very rude. They show no respect to their non-German speaking passengers, which is unacceptable!
Pros: The food was really good! I don’t expect much from airlines but I feel like I got a real meal on board (two of them!)
Cons: We were delayed taking off and there were three screaming babies, but there’s only so much they can do about that.
Cons: No TV in the chair ,even no group TV The the crew member in the business class lady was too aggressive in her way as if we are working for her , too tide chairs

Cons: Landing was rough!
Pros: New york dubai seats were very comfortable. Dubai mumbai were okk. Crew was very pleasing
Pros: The food was nice.
Cons: Emirates should consider stop selling the seat that is just located next to the laboratory. It’s simoly too close to the facility and I could not get good rest at all not to mention about the strange smell.
