Pros: "test"
Cons: "test"
Pros: "Crew was amazing and very helpful"
Cons: "The wheel chairs was a bit scarce so we had to walk far distances at Dubai airport"
Pros: "Excellent crew, who make each person important."
Cons: "Being in economy nothing the crew could do would make it better, however as I have said before Emirates miles rewards should be continue not be lost after a certain time."
Pros: "Everything! Emirates is the best airline in all categories in my opinion."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "The crew was good, but the attentiveness of the crew on the second leg was amazing"
Pros: "The crew is good."
Cons: "The check-in is a disaster. A F-class passenger is treated as a Y passenger. Luggage limited to 2 pieces, even as GOLD FF, was made to pay US$200 dollars on a ticket of already 3,500 dollars and the price is the same for F-C-Y! The treatment was really commerce, as if the check in gets a commission"
Pros: "Crew was very calm, courtesy, and cheerful."
Cons: "It was my first flight ever. So it was perfect thank you Emirates"
Pros: "Since not enough room in "What could have been better". For as long as my second flight was, from Dubai to Boston, the seats in coach were criminal!!! Way to narrow, especially if sitting next to a large person. Not nearly enough distance to seat in front of you, can't even bend over to reach some-"
Cons: "thing on the floor. The seats do NOT recline enough to be able to relax & get shuteye. It would have been really nice to have a footrest of some type, even busses have those! I am a small person, 5'1'' and 110 lb. Consider not having such a huge gap between 1st class and economy. Way over crowded."
Cons: "Check the head phone sets have both speakers working. I had to ask for a different set which was fine"
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent. That's why i prefer to fly with Emirates. Toilets are clean"
Cons: "On this flight, the Gluten Free snack wasn't good. Only one meal was served. For a 10 hour flight, there should be two meals. A snack was served towards the end of the flight. The GF snack was not good! it was two rice cakes with chicken inside. I felt as if they ran out of GF bread!"
Pros: "Exceptional flight super comfortable"
Cons: "That i didn't receive my bucket list dream of an upgraded flight but that literally was thing that could have improved a really great flight..."
Cons: "Lap dances. Strippers. Cabin crew in miniskirts snd high heels."
Pros: "The food was nice and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "My screen didn't work properly and only after asking about it 4+ times were we moved to other seats. Unfortunately the new seats were double middle seats for my husband and I who left window and aisle seats respectively. Please fix your entertainment, Emirates."
Cons: "Very poorly organized boarding"
Cons: "Emirates is the only company that the service is downgrading I use to have free internet being skywards memeber Now internet ia 8 usd for silver memeber Food was not available like mentioned in the carte"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. The video quality and sound were not great"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, enough space for legs, helpful crew, We were offered a voucher to stay in a hotel close to the airport to get a few hours of sleep or relaxation. The voucher included lunch and dinner with good food.."
Cons: "I didn't like the long delay to stay in the airport on hard chairs before leaving Cape Town. The delay affected all the other connections with long periods of stay in the airports. The whole flight was rough, being shaken all the time."
Pros: "Flight delayed 7:16 hours"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly, some downright rude and looked like they hated their jobs (bumped into seats, rushed service, visibly irritated when people would ask for assistance), my video wasn’t working properly and was told “it’s an old plane, there is nothing we can do, it will be retired soon, we can get you some you some magazines”, food was terrible."
Cons: "crew doesn’t seem to talk to each other. advised multiple times that my touch screen didn’t work and that i didn’t want the jain meal. your check-in interface does not allow changing food preferences. this should change"
Cons: "The flight on the B777 was most uncomfortable, even in Business Class. Will avoid any flight in this aircraft/airline in future"
Cons: "The seating room in the 747 with 10 seats per row is limiting and uncomfortable. The passenger beside me was pushing well into my space, and the rambunctious flight attendants kept marching right into me and banging my seat with the cart, once also spilling water all over me. (Though she was very nice about it, and I wasn’t upset with her personally.)"
Pros: "Extremely courteous personnel at airprot IMECABLE service on board Plane brand new"
Cons: "That I had top travel to FLL ibnstead of Miami"
Pros: "The Crew on Emirates are just the best in the industry"
Cons: "paid extra for legroom but the legroom seats have a big disadvantage of no place to put things you need on a long flight."

Pros: "entertainment is great."
Cons: "completely full flight."
Pros: "Flight wasn't cancelled."
Cons: "Lengthy check in of baggage, followed by delayed boarding."
Pros: "It was fine. Crew was pleasant, though obviously stretched thin. Food was decent. We ran a little late boarding, but they managed to take off almost on time."
Cons: "The 777 was crowded and had very little leg room. Our seats were worse than most, as they were over the wing which limited visibility and restricted the already limited leg room of that passenger even more."
Pros: "The cabin crew always smiled and were friendly. At no time did it appear that they were just pretending to be enjoying their job. They worked with great effectiveness."
Cons: "The sandwich served with mayonnaise and chicken was at room temperature. It didn't set well with my stomach. The plane landed and then parked so far away from the terminal. It took a half hour to exit the plane, board the non-air conditioned bus, and arrive at the terminal. The shuttle bus was extremely uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Very comfortable and good service aboard plane."
Cons: "Very long ride on bus from plane to terminal in DubaI. Very unusual and uncomfortable."
Cons: "debarking process was one of the longest in my life"
Pros: "Start scurty things with people who has short time to the next flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very cheerful. There was a good variety of movies and other entertainment."
Cons: "The issue is the electronics ban which is not the fault of Emirates. An extra bottle of wine was requested after dinner which never arrived. During boarding, it was difficult to know which group was boarding when."
Pros: "Friendly, accommodating, and professional service!"
Pros: "Everything!!!!!"
Pros: "The reception at Dubai and delivery to the hotel. Friendly crew. Toilet regularly cleaned"
Cons: "Short on instruction on using the entertainment module. Having to repeatedly ask for water because it only came in small half glasses each time"
Pros: "As comfortable as can be expected in economy class... more comfortable than other carriers to be sure. Service from the flight crewy was excellent. The food actually quite good."
Cons: "Boarding process is the one area that could be improved."
Pros: "The experience as a whole was great!"
Cons: "My meal option wasn't available."
Pros: "Good sleep is most important & emirates is very good in this regard. Food is only fair especially the hot food served at dinner. Wines served are generally of a good to a high standard. Some crew members are better than others. Some are really excellent including any of the Irish members of the team - they always standout with their warmth, friendship & ability to read people & situations."
Cons: "Crew was unprofessional Bags got lost and took forever for any bags to go through on carrousel They boarded nearly an hour before take off and process was very disorganized Hardly any water served"
Pros: "I flew business class and they do an exceptional job of making you comfortable. Great seats that allow you to completely lie down and an attentive staff."
Cons: "The entertainment was surprisingly uninteresting during this trip. Previously it's been better. The food options were also not as good, but the food was a notch above most other airlines so can't complain too much."
Pros: "Seats are way better than other airlines and the entertainment systems is way better. Finally, someone decided it would be a good idea to provide power outlets in a plane. Why was that so hard?"
Pros: "Communication on phone prior to flight regarding baggage allowance & other matters was handled promptly & efficiently by friendly & knowledgeable phone agents. Ground crews in airports & at gates most friendly & efficient"
Pros: "By far the best airline, from service to quality, all around awesome."
Pros: "i liked the neatness and welcome"
Cons: "i did not like the food"
Pros: "sitting and staff"
Cons: "food option"
Cons: "very poor food and seating"
Pros: "I liked the variety of movies and series and I liked the friendly Ness of the cabin crew"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
Pros: "I liked everything particularly the spacious seats."

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

great

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!"
Cons: "~"
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 Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."
Pros: "Patricia (cabin crew member) was particularly nice to us, and encouraged us to move to a row of empty seats so we could lie down and sleep for the second leg of our 24-hour flight. Air ventilation on this plane is excellent. Food was good. my low-lactose meal found me even after I had moved seats. overall excellent flight."
Pros: "I had a family emergency and couldn’t go. I wasn’t allowed to switch my flight or change it. Lots of money spent with nothing in return. Unfortunte."
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."
Cons: "Did not make this flight."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Excellent"
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"
Cons: "Qatar Airlines charged us a 600 Euro fee for missing a flight even though we contacted them before to explain the circumstances beyond our control."
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: "Boarding"
Cons: "Comfort"
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."
Cons: "WiFi"
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"
Cons: "They drop you at the airport for 16-17 hours Airport hotel costs around 350$/night No entry visa for layovers exceeds 8 hours as they announced The answer they gave No entry visas because you bought a discounted ticket!!"
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"
Cons: "light breakfast and light snacks for an 8-hour flight? come on!"
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"
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."
Cons: "Missed it because my flight from Colombo was delayed by 6 hrs."
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
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: "Amazing airline with excellent crew and ground staff ever willing to help!"
Pros: "Excellent in every way. Clearly a top tier airlines. I will choose Qatar Airlines at every opportunity."
Cons: "Nothing"
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."
Pros: "nothing"
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."
Pros: "Nothing."
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."

Short flight with some turbulence. No food or drink offered anymore on this short leg (they USED to give water or soda). Worst part was waiting 45 minutes after landing at DRO for the gate to open so we could get out (apparently, it took special forces to move the other plane--which wouldn't start). THankfully, they left the air on, so we didn't get hot. Good chat with my seat mate.

Space was very poor and earphones awful. Mixed on staff, some good, some bad!

Frankfurt layover at the lounge was good. I would like to commend Tina, the hostess in business class on flight Frankfurt to Delhi. Her service was exceptional warm helpful without a fuss. The gentleman who came to serve me just left without completing the food service. He left without giving me my main course.

Pros: "amazing and great customer service"
Cons: "The entertainment did not work good the entire flight"
Cons: "Beef main course overcooked and dry."
Pros: "Planes were comfortable and well maintained."
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Poor planning on having the connection in terminals far apart from each other."
Pros: "Not much went well, sorry"
Cons: "Because of bad logistics, the flight from CDG to FRA was delayed and therefore i missed my connection to AUS. Lufthansa personnel could have helped me make the second flight but didn't bother. I was rebooked on another flight through IAH which defeats the purpose of choosing a direct flight."
Cons: "Boarding by rows would avoid people rushing to line up ahead of time."
Pros: "all great"
Cons: "my bags arriving!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the seats are v comfortable"
Cons: "I cant really think of anything"
Cons: "Touch screens were not working well. Required multiple hard taps which disturbed the passenger in front."
Cons: "My 2 bags haven't arrived from Sunday 6 January till now (10 January) and all my winter clothes plus other important things are in it. I check every day with lufthansa call center but still no progress."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "A little bit turbulence"
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "The worst food I have ever had the displeasure of having in my mouth. The staff kept bumping into me and therefore did not sleep at all."
Pros: "Crew was excellent and accomodating from check in to debording."
Cons: "Plain was very warm. Boarding in Frankfurt was on the tarmac and because I was traveling with someone who required wheelchairs it made boarding a huge pain."
Pros: "Helpfun plane crew"
Cons: "Flight got delayed. We got put ln differnt flight thru san Francisco. Another flight got delayed. When we got transfer no one told us we have only bearly 1 h to catch the next place to Germany. They assured us we will make it twice. We missrf the plane to Germany over 30 min. San Francisco airport horrible. No one gave us any information. They didnt know wfere is what. No one helped us."
Pros: "Very friendly atmosphere at boarding gate & helpful crew on journey, plus surprisingly good food foe economy class made for positive feel to this trip. Add to it the fact I caught a movie I'd missed seeing at cinema plus even getting a few hours sleep, this was probably one of my better long haul flights in recent times."
Pros: "Their crews were great. Good selection of entertainments."
Cons: "Meals were not great. Their seats were hard to set for a long fight."
Pros: "Accommodations comfortable"
Cons: "Crew was not helpful. There was clearly not enough room for everyone's hand luggage, and the crew members simply shrugged their shoulders. I flew with hand luggage on lap because bins were full."
Pros: "Loved the service both flying to and from Europe. Enjoyed the free inflight entertainment, blanket and pillow, and meals/snacks we were given."
Cons: "Again the ease of getting boarding passes for all travelers."
Cons: "Didn't get meal of my choice. The crew was very friendly and responsive. Overall very good experience."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, take off delayed by just over an hour but the Crew were exceptional with providing updates and bringing around refreshments whilst we waited."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable but outside that not much I can fault the airline for."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "We were a little late with boarding. I prefer Lufthansa for travel, but I can think of a ton more, easy to serve, more healthy and delicious menu items. The food smells good, usually, but it isn't that great. The chicken I had was fine, but the side dish (sweet potatoes) wasn't good. The salad had too much radicchio, the soft cheese was too rubbery to cut (spilled my water doing so), the cake wasn't up to German reputation. Also, one flight attendant, got her own suitcase down, at least 5 times, stretching directly above me, with her jacket in my face and never apologizing. My seat wouldn't recline, nor could other peoples. This is why I paid to choose my seat, so I could sleep, more easily but I sat upright the whole time."
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The usual flight discomfort, but the seat in front of me was broke. The person in it struggled to stay out of my lap, which I appreciated. The connecting flight had a non-functional screen and the reading light broke and flew across the cabin."
Pros: "The service."
Pros: "I love Lufthansa! Great service, comfortable, warm towels before meals served with real silverware. Amazing!"
Cons: "Service! Comfort!!"
Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"
Pros: "Excellent flight attendant in charge of us."
Cons: "The galley where the snacks were looked more like a very dirty restaurant kitchen. It was absolutely gross with dirty forks, dirty glasses, overall grimy and dirty."
Pros: "Munich airport is great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Mess in JFK airport"
Pros: "The crew was nice about everything. On being asked at the airport to at least change my seat on the second leg flight the personnel did it without a fuss."
Cons: "Food could have been better, the breakfast/snack we got wasn't filling at all. The entertainment collection can be better specially Indian/Hindi movies"
Pros: "Hospitable service"
Cons: "Service/hospitable"
Pros: "Overall decent experience. The crew was attentive, captain informative."
Cons: "Aircraft not too comfortable but much better than the aircraft in the first leg of my travel from Seattle to Frankfurt."
Cons: "missed connection in frankfurt"
Cons: "I was charged for my bags which it said on line bags were free . Seats didn't recline . We were charged for refreshments. This airline had nothing that I should write about ."
Pros: "We checked in online into row 12 without any error messages about the fact that kids cannot sit there. When we arrived at the airport we were given different e.seats and we could not sit together with our kids."
Cons: "No food, mixed up seating, no entertainment"
Pros: "Very nice staff at the gate and awesome media selection on the plane."
Pros: "The services provided by United were good, although we were delayed due to mechanical issues. However, we were kept informed and made comfortable."
Cons: "I did not know when I booked through Lufthansa that it was a United flight, so I could not check in online and I was not able to order my gluten-free meal. Also, since it was Lufthansa, I was not able to download the entertainment system onto my portable device because I did not know I needed to."
Pros: "Didn't try the food."
Cons: "Nothing out of the ordinary regarding the flight itself. The gate was changed twice, which was inconvenient. Not much leg room or no adjustable pillows on the seats."
Cons: "On May 16, 2017, there was a group of Albanian and American passengers rushing through Frankfurt Airport to catch the connecting flight to New York. Their first flight (LH#1425) from Tirana to Frankfurt was 45 minutes late causing them to eventually miss their connecting flight. At this point, the passengers were asked to show their passports, separating the US citizens from the rest. All the US citizens were loaded on a bus and provided hotel, dinner and breakfast. The Albanian citizens were moved to the lower level of the airport where they were left to freeze all night. Some of the passengers were elderly and had their heart or high blood pressure medications in their luggage that they didn’t have access to. One US-Albanian citizen was asked to separate from his Green-Card holder wife in order to receive the US citizen treatment…"
Pros: "Food was great, as was entertainment interface on tv."
Pros: "Most all was good."
Cons: "The kids screaming!"
Pros: "Courteous flight crew"
Pros: "Space"
Cons: "I could not obtain in Frankfurt airport a boarding pass of my connection from Rio to Santiago"
Pros: "The new plane entertainment features and the bigger toilet room space... but... seat space SUCKS... I'd rather have a more comfy seat than bigger toilet room space"
Cons: "The person behind me kept pushing my seat back.. guy next to me kept elbowing me. Seat space is way to small, need more room to move. I'm only 130 lbs. can hardly wonder how a bigger person can handle those tiny seat spaces. Also, those seats are so uncomfortable with the way they contour one's back. No support and very very uncomfortable, I had mid back tension pains the entire 12 hour flight."
Pros: "Check-in was easy and boarding was efficient"
Cons: "The only suggestion I would have is that the entertainment options could be a bit more updated. The movie selection was not as good as I have experienced it on other flights (--- other airlines have a better 'new release' selection)."
Pros: "Good take off and landing. Crew was thoughtful and polite."
Cons: "Could improve on boarding. Perhaps start with the people that have seats in the back of the plane first to make it easier to board and not block the aisles, instead of having everyone board at once. Also need more comfortable seats."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. No compensation given either"

Have people at the Westjet counter

same as from LUX … professional, nice.

They canceled our flights but they flew anyway.

Never booked this flight

Pros: "The plane condition."
Cons: "The flight attendants could have served some drinks in between the meals. They actually refused to serve something additionally when asked."

Pros: "Wifi on Board"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam.

And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"

Pros: "The food service was good and the flight attendants were friendly."

Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"

They just let people fly without properly using the required mask

Pros: "Easy boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly on bot departure and return flights. Will make me reconsider Air France in the future."
Cons: "Comfort plus seats need some work. Very thin padding on a hard seat. The leg rest needs to come up higher so you don’t slide down while semi reclined. Nice compromise between business and coach though."

Cons: "Delta please make excellence a priority in all areas of customer service. Set high standards for staff so customers know that you appreciate them and are ready for business. The world is at the customer's fingertips, let their first choice be Delta. When their are bad days, customers will understand"
Pros: "The crew was efficient and friendly. The plane took off on time and landed on time."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane left 45 minutes late. No reason given either when waiting or after late boarding. I didn't eat as I tried to sleep byt narrow seats meant being woken constantly by fidgety neighbour.

Pros: "This is what happens when you get roped in by a low price."
Cons: "Disorganization which led to not being able to pre-purchase baggage. Then bad info at airport which led to multiple trips through security trying to make weight on a bag that should have been checked but was told didn't need to. Ended up missing flight, having to rebook at full fare and no one knows where the bag that was checked is. STAY AWAY!"
Pros: "Short & easy flight"
Cons: "All ok"
Cons: "My baggage was broken"
Pros: "Being able to have my meal at the airport before my flight so that I could sleep in comfort."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."

Pros: "Cabin Crew and food selections were top notch"
Cons: "Seat configuration as a first class ticket was awful. Same configuration as economy class but by leaving the middle seat empty constituted first class. I'm 6'-1" and missed the legroom...."
Pros: "I am a 70 year old woman with reduced mobility. The flight attendants made sure that I was given an aisle seat and they helped me find a seat with two empty ones next to me. The crew could not have been kinder."
