Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Every things"
Pros: "The travel kits are much nicer now, appreciated the mattress"
Cons: "The boarding process in ORT was a horrible fail. they didn't announce the boarding of first/business and by the time I arrived at my seat there was almost no overhead room left because people from economy put there bags in the business area. The bathroom was definitely not cleaned enough, I went twice where the floor was soaked, the seat was wet and the sink full of toothpaste. I understand that every passenger should be responsible enough to clean up after themselves, but it was not an enjoyable experience. The crew was friendly enough, but it didnt feel like the personalized service experience that is usually the case (where they introduce themselves, explain the do not disturb sticker etc). Also I think there was something wrong with my seat because it didnt "lay flat" all the way."
Pros: "Spacious for the kid to walk"
Cons: "For this flight boarding was smooth as my previous flight was late and an Emirates employee ran us through security and to this flight on time. For the people reading this review who might think my kid would have been messy or cranky on the flight so we were treated this way, that was not the case, she not even cried once or made a mess. Same as my previous flight with crew, Crew were so late in responses, my wife actually walked to their place 2 times to get milk for the baby. Also she was not served food at all when they served breakfast. We requested Hindu meal and I was served hindu meal and she was missed and when they served lunch she was told she has not requested prior to the flight and can only be served a regular meal, which she gladly accepted. Kid was not served any food again, so we gave her solid from our meal. When we requested some food for the baby she was given a banana baby food(Kid did not even eat it). Taste of the food was edible(Not great). Overall do not fly emirates with a kid"
Pros: "The crew and my fruit platter."
Cons: "So many screaming babies. So many passsengers wanting a few upgrade. And a sick passenger that had to deplane resulting in delayed take off. The crew were saints- composed, polite, and embodied team spirit. So many screaming babies."
Pros: "A380 flight was very comfortable, with adequate leg room. A great feature for long haul flights. Good food and a very good entertainment system"
Cons: "Good was served late, in both legs. Flight departs at 7 pm but diiner was served after 10 (midnight Dubai time) Which meant our sleep was disturbed and when breakfast was served we had a full stomach."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful. ICE entertainment onboard offered a wide veriety to choose from"
Cons: "The food was average"
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "No wonder Emirates is one of the best airlines in the world!"
Cons: "The layover from Karachi to Dubai is less than 2 hours. The flight from Karachi is always late n it makes me nervous that I might miss my flight for LA. It has happened to me before. You should maintain your punctuality in Karachi as well. Even the boarding process is extremely flawed, it is very frustrating. Plz maintain your reputation everywhere in the word!"
Pros: "We will highly recommend to use this airline. We will try again to flight to any city that we know they will have connections . Is worth it to plan to stay a few days in Dubai. Is a great city , unique, different."
Pros: "The service was excellent and the crew tried to keep everyone comfortable. Food was good and great selection when it comes to entertainment."
Pros: "Food is terrible. Not what it used to be. Don't keep the bathrooms clean as they used to. Service just isn't as great as it used to be sadly. Entertainment is great tho!"
Cons: "Broke my bags."
Cons: "Wheel chair travellers not comfortable as they didnt find help and also have to wait for long time to get their turn"
Pros: "I say that everything was good but overall "excellent" because it is hard to fly for hours upon hours and say that it was excellent. All considered, it was good while Emirates (compared to other carriers) is excellent. These huge airplanes are amazing!"
Cons: "Flying for hours upon hours but nobody can do anything about that. Africa has a routine, including this flight, of filling the cabin full of chemicals - for insects? Prepare to cover your head and face!"
Pros: "- almost nothing - They arranged vegetarian food on demand."
Cons: "- Repetitive food - No one turned up when called for assistance. - late service"
Pros: "Not many passengers got to spread out"

Cons: "Onboard upgrades for one way was too expensive"
Pros: "I like the legroom on Emirates."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "Comfortable and well cared for during the flight"
Cons: "Wheelchair help in Dubai is horrible. They need a disabled or aged person on their staff to understand our problems Too many carriage changes and unnecessary location changes. We do not need a guide to understand where to go and lead us along. We need physical help."
Pros: "Very good services by Emirates, flight was on time, leg room between seats was sufficient, meals were good and staff behavior was good"
Pros: "OK flight"
Pros: "Efficient, clean, friendly"
Cons: "None comes to mind"
Cons: "The screen blacked out mid flight (on a 16 hr long flight!) and there was nothing anyone really tried to do to fix it except 'reset' which did nothing. Unfortunate this happened when the flight was so long."
Pros: "They canceled our flight because they were over booked ,we had to stay overnight , overall very unhappy with the airline , they forced us to purchase new tickets , will take legal action against the airline"
Cons: "Baggage took over 40 minutes to come out."
Cons: "food was not served on time. crew was not attentive and did not care for passengers"
Pros: "Every opportunity I get when traveling will fly with Emirates. The flight staff have always provided excellent service regardless of of being in economy class. The restrooms are always clean. I also enjoy being advised by the flight crew of any impending turbulence before we encounter. Emirates has always provided me an excellent flying experience despite my fears of long distance traveling."
Pros: "same as above"
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "It was just ok overall."
Cons: "The first flight was late by over an hour and nobody could tell us why. They also serve food once and you don't get a snack or anything--you don't even see the attendants--for another 10 hours. Then they serve breakfast close to an hour before landing. The crew is constantly telling you to sit as if you weren't allowed to use the toilet at all when the seatbelt sign is on--and it's on the whole time. So you have to be asking permission to use the toilet when you are right next to the toilet door and about to go in because they don't allow you to use it. That's not healthy for someone to hold it."
Cons: "Their customer services is not terrible, it's nonexistent."
Pros: "I will only fly Emirates when available to my destination from now on."
Pros: "Awesome flight...got a business class ticket and I loved each moment during the journey"
Cons: "Indian food was not that tasty and quality needs to improve"
Cons: "Sorry that the passengers leaving left so much trash. Amazing how inconsiderate passengers really are."
Pros: "I liked the boarding and most the crew was excellent"
Cons: "I specified ovo Lacto vegetarian because I eat cheese and diary. I got a stale and very small bread role with strawberry jam, wilted fruit and margarine for the breakfast meal. The non vegetarians got a full plate of croissant, cheese, fruit and jams. When I asked for butter I got no response. I asked three times before I could get some butter as I do not eat margarine. Lunch was wilted and slimy lettuce and tired fruit for dessert. The main meal itself was delicious but I was hungry the whole flight due to the small helping.. Another small but slightly fresher role and margarine again. Next to the non vegetarian meal there was less than half the food. It was very disappointing."
Pros: "I. Had bulk head seat 45g, the seat was stuck and could not recline ,the tv was stuck too so could not watch anything was boating and it was not comfortable at all"
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty. Didn't get the Muslim meals that I ordered."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Very good 8"
Pros: "The variety of classical music selection in ICE system is amazing. Immensely appreciated. PERFECT landing"
Cons: "The beverages were served way after the meal"
Pros: "Plenty of room, entertainment excellent, staff wonderfully friendly and helpful. I fly many times (in Economy) and having all the options be excellent never happens."
Cons: "See anive"
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"
Pros: "Combo deal....It might not sound funny to many but my 21 hour lay over gave me an opportunity to visit instabul and that was great."
Cons: "THE bathroom esp at the back of the plan read very dirty. Went floors a d trash that was overflowing."
Cons: "Extra extra and private security passing from Istanbul airport"
Pros: "All was perfect"
Pros: "I'm happy and will continue to fly Turkish."
Pros: "I,d all the service and the food the drink"
Cons: "The crews are very helpfull an Cain yes I will recommend Turkish airline thank you to make my trip so placent"
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: "our luggages were left in instanbul so when we arrived in kenya we waited for long before being told our bags were left in instanbul,were had to come next day to collect,stressful experience because we were staying like 80 miles away"
Pros: "When I missed my flight from Belgrade to Istanbul due to plane being late 45 min.and I missed my flight to LA, they gave me a free accommodation and meals."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that nobody told me that Ataturk Airport in Istanbul is so big that you can not make to connect flight on time for an hour.Especially if you flight has been late to depart like mine from Belgrade due to the rain. I thought I will make it to the connect flight to LA but the gate was already closed. I was instructed to do multiple errands, to get Turkish visa, etc all on my expense to be able to exit the transit as an American citizen and be able to take Turkish airlines bus to the hotel.The hotel was fine and the meals. The problem was that they calculate bus traveling time wrong in the hotel and put people on the bus next day too late, so due to the traffic jam, we barely made it to the airport, and then we had to stress the officials to put us on the fast passport control lane due to boarding time."
Cons: "Very hot inside the plane"
Pros: "It was great. I told everyone about it."
Cons: "Boarding in Turkey was a bit unorganized. Bathrooms on board could be better and the crew should come pick up the food trays soon after."
Cons: "You had a very disrespectful, illogical, anal retentive person at the ticket gate just before getting on the shuttle. She would not allow us to wait for the rest of our party of 2 to go on the shuttle to the plane together. They were delayed because of your personal continually bringing other people to cut in line in front of them. There was plenty of time and the shuttle was already full, and we wanted to wait for the next shuttle to board the airplane together. She came out several times from inside of the building shouting at the three of us to get on the shuttle even when the person managing the shuttle flow at the bottom of the stairs was about to let us wait for the next shuttle. What was her problem(?) - she could use a lot more people skills and realize who pays her salary - the customers. She really tarnished the whole image and impression I originally had of TA. Also, there was no way to go to the bathroom without going through a long line of security again at the last gate before the shuttle which did not make sense."
Pros: "The flight was great and the service was wonderful. The plane was new and clean. A huge plus was the video entertainment in every seat along with headphones and USB Charging Port. They poured me a double Glenlivet scotch on the rocks at NO CHARGE!"
Cons: "I booked three round-trip tickets from LAX to Athens. Our daughter did not fly with us there but we checked with ticketing in LAX and they booked her seat anyway. The issue came when we tried to leave Athens the airlines then said that I had to purchase a one-way ticket! They informed me that the flight was cancelled for my daughter because she didn't fly to Athens. The ticket was almost $1,500.00 and I intend to get my money back but it was unfortunate that they had to charge me for it in the first place."
Cons: "I was surprised that my laptop was taken from me without giving any explanation, I think the customer have to be informed about it."
Pros: "The food was pretty good"
Cons: "The seats were too close so you could hardly move when the seat in front reclined. They didn't clean the bathroom during an entire 13 hour flight and it needed it."
Cons: "My luggage just disappeared on my second leg to Istanbul. 2 email notifications that luggage was not found. Wrong contact phone number at initial report and was not addressed despite report and upload. Also a representative emailed that luggage was erroneously recorded as "delivered" which is not true. I still don't have my luggage after 14 days. No further responses despite extensive documentation and receipts. This is bad!!!"
Pros: "1) The vegan meals were outstanding. 2) The free movies helped a lot! 3) The Cherry Juice is Sooooo good!"
Cons: "I asked to be move from 13D (isle) to 23G (isle) They stuck me in 23E (middle) and insisted it was a middle."
Pros: "Every thing was ok"
Cons: "boarding the treat you like animals"
Cons: "The flight from Los angeles was 3 hours late when I got to Instanbul Turkey was nobody there to help us I lost my flight and they lie to us about available flights I ask them to speak to a supervisor they told me the only Supervisor was outside the airport they wanted me to pay $30 for a visa and go through customs was the first time I flew Turkish airways and will be the last one"
Pros: "Everything was good except the airplane.. i was on row 13 and the cabinet was warm and air-condition was not working fine.. i reported this ti the flight attendant. She confirmed the temp was set to 23 C however it was definitely not less that 26C .. also it took long time to serve the hot meal although we were on rhe plane and the flight depart8 got delayed for 90 minutes due to technical problem. On the other hand, seat were comfortable and flight attendants were so nice and friendly.. also Turkish lounge and airport were good"
Pros: "Quality experience all the way around"
Cons: "Had to cancel due tp safety situation in Turkey (bombings, Dept of State warning). I had flight insurance but Kayak did not refund a dime."
Cons: "I like it everything. Turkish airline was great flight with great food and great service during the flight , great way to flight , thumbs up Turkish airline !!!"
Pros: "Again, everything was great! The kosher food from La Casa was outstanding and your stewards are polite, helpful, hard-working and professional. You have a wonderful airline! R. Lerner"
Pros: "Appreciated the lights being dimmed, to make it more restful."
Cons: "Would have enjoyed ice with the juice, or colder beverages."
Pros: "Appreciate highten security checks giving "secured" feelings to passengers."
Cons: "Asian vegetarian meal was not as good for inbound flight as it was for outbound flight."
Pros: "Good Food, Comfortable Seats & Good Entertainment Options"
Pros: "As before, as far as airline food goes, Turkish has above average meals."
Cons: "This flight was delayed by two hours and there was no representative from Turkish airlines there to answer questions. Again for someone 6'2", this plane had seats a little smaller than usual. On the way out, my knees never hit the seat ahead of me, this time they were constantly up against the back of other seat. Also this flights entertainment controls were terrible, constantly went back to home page while trying to select movie."
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: "they are good thank you very mush"
Pros: "that we got to check in 2 bags"
Cons: "-lost one of my bags"
Pros: "Very bad experience i have to think twice before I book airfare now !!"
Cons: "They need to have emergency back up plans for the passengers who is stuck in the airport it must be international law!"
Cons: "Worst airline I have flown, avoid if at all possible. We saved $400 each on a long haul flight from LAX connecting through IST and we should have spent the extra money. Flight attendants are extremely rude, not helpful, the food is terrible, the planes are all old Boeing 777-300 likely purchased second hand and seem to be falling apart on the inside. I saw flight attendants kicking, punching, and body slamming carts and other items to get them to fit in their racks in the kitchen areas, I hate to think what that means for safety of critical items. Just stay away for your safety and sanity"
Cons: "Customer servos default equipment moving you to different seat Change the condition for your pet And they would not do anything to make it better my last time flying with Turkish airline"
Cons: "Too hot inside the aircraft"
Cons: "Very poor English (in the plane and in the IST airport) and very poor organization in the IST ariport"
Pros: "The timing The price"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Lost my poor mother wheelchair and didn't help her kind of leaving her for hours in corner"
Pros: "The in-flight food and entertainment was excellent. They provide many options for food and drinks. The staff is also very attentive and will not hesitate to help you and provide you with everything that you need."
Cons: "I took a transatlantic flight to the USA and like many economy seats in al airlines, legroom was a problem. However, it was better than American Airlines. The seats in general are comfortable."
Pros: "i love every thing about the crew they where all simple easy going people they did their best to make sure the flight and the demands of the passengers are been attained"
Pros: "The food is first class"
Cons: "Somehow the seats (business) are not quite horizontal and they remain very lumpy."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and took good care of everybody in general."
Cons: "On the way back from Munich the gluten free bread served was not edible! I would recommend to change it to something more appetizing. It's been used for way too many years! On the LA bound plane the GF bun was wonderful! Thank you though for caring to serve GF food! Not the most comfortable seats for your back in the economy class."
Pros: "On-time flights."
Cons: "Seems like Germans have perfected isolation of all passengers heading to the USA at the airport terminal. After passing 3 passport/boarding pass check points I attempted to buy some coffee in the shop near the gates. Again they demanded passport and boarding pass. I refused. I cannot resist a comment: "Welcome to modern-day Dachau experience!""
Pros: "everything else was fine"
Cons: "the bathroom smell. they should have at least a good smelling soap, like lemonsoap.... the pasta was too overcooked."
Pros: "Service with a smile. Great food. Great use of space for bathrooms away from passengers"
Pros: "Smooth flight!"
Pros: "Again, service was excellent. The flight crew were attentive and served with smiles. Food was good and all entertainment devices worked."
Pros: "IT WAS ALL PRETTY GOOD"
Cons: "THAT I WAS IN COACH BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO PAY FOR AN UPGRADE"
Pros: "Air bus was amazing!"
Cons: "See above. Horrible."
Cons: "They don't board by rows so there was a huge long line - a free for all"
Cons: "I was charged $65.00 for checked luggage; my layover was only 50 minuets and had to rush...last person to board."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The infotainment system could have been better. My system was not working for the first 3 hours and the sound went out after 2 hours of use. Also my blanket was not clean."
Pros: "The crew is amazing, special food needs is covered and delicious, great service after all."
Cons: "Just deaiappointed"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly, the lack of customer service is evident."
Cons: "(1) The captain collected headsets 30 minutes before landing, causing us to miss the last 15 minutes of a movie. Why? (2) Very long cues for toilet use. (3) The baggage took more than half hour to arrive. (4) The chair in front of me reclined very far (more than those on its sides), making it very hard to eat, get up, or read. Need better maintenance."
Pros: "The people who work for Lufthansa are the nicest i’ve met, on par with Turkish airlines. The times for boarding and departure were respected, the flight crew was extra nice, even accommodating requests that gave them extra-work. Economy passengers were treated like first class in terms of service and solicitude of the crew. Headphones, blankets, pillows were offered free of charge, so we’re the food and drinks, and there was a good selection of movies and music. On a 770$ ticket, mind you! The crew will come by repeatedly to check if passengers desired some more wine or coffee, offered water and juices on a tray several times outside the regular service times, and cared for the families with children. Thumbs up!"
Cons: "The warm food was a bit unappetizing, the potatoes for instance were black, but there is nothing that the crew could do better than offer to replace it. Such graceful approach to a little inconvenience!"
Pros: "Great departure time. Super comfortable even in coach."
Cons: "The second meal was a bit skimpy and not so tasty."
Cons: "The service"
Pros: "Safe trip. Announcer had a radio voice."
Cons: "Food was horrible. Service was scarce. Bathrooms were not the cleanest. Snacks were scarce and not appropriate. The tv screens were not too user friendly and programs would skip while showings."
Cons: "Miss the flight due to too short of transfer time. As a professional you guys should know better to have such tight transfer time. I want credit for my major inconvenience"
Pros: "Spacious and quiet aircraft, lots of legroom in certain exit row seats. Friendly cabin crew. Compared to the loud and bumpy ride on the Lufthansa 747, the A380 was way better."
Cons: "Moderate delays at each end—waiting for transfer passengers delayed our departure half an hour. We made up the time en route but then sat on the tarmac at LAX because the gate was occupied. I think my seat mates missed their connection. They broke the handle on my rollaboard (checked due to stingy cabin baggage allowance)."
Cons: "Their computer terminals were down on the boarding area. Actually about 5 Boarding areas were down no one was available to give direction or answer questions until you got To the front of the line and many had to be sent then to a different line. Bad enough the terminals were down but not even close to German efficiency in handling the problem. Also several of the stewards were rather surly and short"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Pilots at Lufthansa are the best regarding landing and taking off. I like also a lot that lufthansa flies mostly with Boeing airplanes."
Pros: "It is so nice to flight on board a plane were the staff knows what to do."
Cons: "First, Lufthansa lost our baggage from Hamburg to Los Angeles. Then, the delivery company (Direct Courier Services) Lufthansa uses was completely inept and unprofessional - every single one of their employees is a complete moron. We didn't end up getting our baggage for two and half days so we were wearing the same clothes that we left Germany with. Then, after being told by Lufthansa customer service to submit receipts for clothes we had to buy, never got reimbursed or even the courtesy of a reply. After flying Lufthansa for over a decade, will never use this airline again. Epic fail."
Pros: "Exelent crew"
Cons: "Distance too far between gates for transfer"
Pros: "As usual, good customer service."
Cons: "I fail to see why Lufthansa is deliberately destroying their competitive advantage."
Cons: "The flight attendant did not bring the wheel chair and take me to the bus where I waited too long and when I arrived to customs no wheel chair was there and I asked every officer there how to get the wheel chair no one helped after long time one officer called and the chair arrived and he transferred me to a cart the driver was very bad he did not help in seating me and I sit on the back with my carry on when he drives like crazy I fell on the floor screeming he stopped and place me in the front and he asked if I need a doctor I told him no I just need to catch my flight although I was hurt badly with a very big bruise and when I reach the gate the plane was gone and I have to wait for another flight to take me to San Francisco and from there to Los Angeles and I singed a paper that I don't want a doctor"
Pros: "On time-well organized!"
Pros: "The people behind me had made a tent to shade themselves. Main offenders of the heavenly light were those random people who would open their window. So I guess there is not much I want Lufthansa to do about that."
Cons: "Their needs to be a window somewhere for us center-of-the-plane people to take pictures"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "when seats recline in economy you can barely get in and out of a seat"
Cons: "I had picked my own isle seat at purchase of ticket. Some how i ended up sitting middle row."
Cons: "Being sick on the way back home from my Vacation!"
Pros: "Service was execellent"
Cons: "The entertainment system and charging didn't work but they did give me a voucher for 100 Euros to spend."
Pros: "THE VIDEO OF THE FLIGHT THE WHOLE TIME. THE SMOOTH SMOOTH FLIGHT. THE FOOD AND WINE. THE SERVICE."
Pros: "Very nice flight, very little if no turbulence food was decent just luggage took forever"
Cons: "Luggage wait was an hr other then that the A380 which is my favorite plane was amazing"
Pros: "The downstairs lavatories are genius!"
Cons: "I could not get any information in Moscow until arriving at the airport."
Cons: "1 hour between flights meant a very hectic transfer."
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."
Pros: "The flight Crew was very attentive and went the extra mile to keep us happy during our flight, the head stewardess I give her a 10+. we will fly with Lufthansa again. great movies!"
Cons: "The flight from Roma to Frankfurt was late and we had to run what seemed like two miles to be able to catch our connecting flight to Los Angeles."
Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "Pasta was so so."
Cons: "flight was late; food was not so great, lunch and dinner were the same; :-("
Cons: "At time confusion amongst the crew- received wilted salad- seemed the last rows had to take what was left over"
Pros: "This is how to run an airline. Ausgezeichnet!"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "NOT MUCH. LEFT, GOT THERE ON TIME. SMOOTH FLIGHT."
Cons: "SEATED, TREATED LIKE CATTLE. VERY UNCOMFORTABLE DUE TO NARROW SEATS. GAVE US TWO MIDDLE SEATS IN FOUR-SEAT CENTER. WANTED $35/EA TO PRESELECT SEATS, ONE-WAY. NEVER AGAIN IF I CAN HELP IT....."
Pros: "Service,entertainment, and food. Easy check in"
Cons: "Cabin was too warm. No air vents in new aircraft so difficult to sleep."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Flight all good"
Cons: "Suitcase did not arrive and still not received."
Pros: "Service - Crew"
Pros: "Professionality of the crew, punctuality, comfort. I loved the new Alitalia uniforms."
Cons: "Food was embarassingly awful, almost disgusting. Too limited entertainment choices."
Pros: "Professionality onboard, punctuality"
Cons: "In Bologna, They made me take stuff out of my luggage at check in, because the weight was 26kg instead of 23 kg and I'm even a Fyingblue gold member. Totally ridiculous."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "The Amsterdam airport is super disorganized, with rude employees great at making excuses for their incompetence. The boarding crew really struggled to organized the boarding and wouldn't really care about people's status. We had to take a bus to the airplane, and even though both plane's entrances were open, they sent everybody to the front entrance. The comfort of the plane was horrendous, with seats over 20 years old and their business class was the same as the coach, but with no one sitting in the middle (can you get any lower than this?) The flight attendant woke me up to shove a food tray that I didn't want. We had to wait over 45 minutes after the plane landing to start seeing some luggage show up on the conveyor bell. The overall flight experience make southwest look like a luxury airline. This was my first and last time flying on KLM."
Pros: "Crew is very polite and professional. The uniform is beautiful and pleasant and freshly pressed!"
Cons: "Economy comfort seats are very narrow and the shape of the back-support is horribly uncomfortable. The ergonomy concept is faulty in several ways: the plug for the headphone is in the inside of the armrest, the flimsy remote control is also hidden there and your thigh is covering it. The screen is horrible. Movie selection is very limited."
Pros: "I fly AMS to MAN regularly for work. There are a number of providers, but KLM far exceed the experience offered by low cost airlines, often for the same price even at short notice. You get a drink and snack; and at no annoying sales announcements. Miles club membership is free, even if you don't fly regularly well worth it as it halves the cost of cost of checked baggage. Peaceful airline with no hidden costs during booking."
Pros: "Friendly stuff"
Cons: "The expiriace going there was horrible because of the weather."
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"
Cons: "Not sure how to make the seats more comfortable. I have some back issues though. However, some of my travel companions slept right through the flight."
Pros: "The crew was professional & friendly"
Cons: "Food was terrible honestly, entertainment system didn't work on 1st flight."
Cons: "All of the less than good, obvious!"
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"
Pros: "Great airline"
Pros: "economy plus seats were nice, great movie selection, especially international movies"
Cons: "crew was not friendly, i had to ask for water many times, usually water person walk the aisle. food was terrible. other carriers food were better"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight on schedule and good entertainment."
Cons: "Space is just reasonable on a long flight, even if there's seats more spacious that you could choose if you pay more."

Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."
Pros: "Everything was clean and well organized."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... 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: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."
Cons: "No outlets to charge digital devices, and need more bathrooms on board. I was able to sleep most of the 11 hour flight so I did not take advantage of the entertainment."
Cons: "KLM lost my luggage during the layover. My luggage didn't arrive even after the next flight to Prague. Customer service wouldn't give me any idea what flight my luggage would arrive on, nor would they tell me what time my luggage might be delivered to me."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment on board in business. Stale buns - staff unapologetic. Older 737 with uncomfortable seats."

Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."

Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Pros: "From pre-boarding, to boarding, to the food, and the attentiveness, everything was top notch! The cleanliness of the plane was only topped by the friendliness of the crew."

No one showed up or bothered to call. I checked the status and was told 10 pm. No one showed. I was then told 12-1 AM. No one showed. No one bothered to call. No one showed up until 3 AM Monday morning. I took my frustrations to twitter and it looks like this is a common occurrence with British Airways."
Pros: "On my way to Dublin it was good service everything went smooth boarding, crew and food"
Cons: "On the way back from Dublin I did not like the fact the airplane did not have any entertainment. It is a long trip and just to sit down for more than 10 hours is difficult."
Pros: "They checked our passports and we boarded immediately after, at the same speed. It was a perfect pace. No gaggle or cattle call."
Cons: "The ride was extremely uncomfortable but that is the fault of the A380. If you are in the cheap seats, look into another airplane. It's simply terrible."

Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Awful (typically BA) configuration im Club World on a 787 - cramped, inadequate storage, just lacking essential comfort for a supposed premium class. Food: seriously, I've had better in student cafes. Just stop it BA - its like some kind of prison food. Entertainment: meh. Small selection of new release movies. Crew: with the exception of one - just one from a complement of 15 odd - of the crew, the rest were a surly, inhospitable miserable bunch. If you hate your job don't take it out on customers - especially in a service industry."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Didn't like the 2 hour delay. Had to wait on the runway because of lack of organization at the london airport."
