At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class.

Pros: "i liked that the entertainment system had a lot to offer, lots of movies and options. I liked the staff, they were very cooperative and friendly."
Cons: "the flight was delayed 45 minutes, passengers were waiting in a non-air-conditioned aircraft. The AC was working after takeoff. The airplane chairs were small and no leg room, on a 7 hour flight to Barcelona that was exhausting! Couldn't manage to get some sleep at all. Overall, at least I arrived to my destination safe and sound. Thank you!"
Cons: "light breakfast and light snacks for an 8-hour flight? come on!"
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and a pleasant ride"
Cons: "food service could be a bit more prompt"
Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."
Cons: "Not having available air for the center seats made our flight a truly awful experience. The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people. My wife was virtually ignored by the male crew on her side of the aircraft."
Cons: "Leg space in economic class is too less. No options in vegetarian food. They don't give you what you want."
Cons: "USD 20 wi fi and you only get 200 MB seems a bit antiquated"

Cons: "It was all good"
Pros: "Checkin was really quick, needed to have some facilities for the passengers who have more than 8hrs layover."
Cons: "The crew was not efficient or always looking for shortcut. The specific person assigned never recommended or gave any information about the amenities available rather was waiting to be asked uneasily and was not polite at all. Need to be trained more effectively for such a 5 star airlines."
Cons: "the flight was canceled."
Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."
Cons: "I checked in a couple of hours after checkin open but unfortunately I could not get my preferred window seat, got a middle instead. But still the leg room would have been ok but the middle seat (second row behind the bilkhead row) had the front passenger's entertainment system arranged across the footwell, not sideways, so it completely blocked the footwell and prevented any stretching of the legs. I am a tall passenger and this caused much discomfort on the flight, I had to keep getting up to walk around. I also found the seat bottom quite uncomfortable (not enough padding I think), butnghis could have been made worse by the footwell issue. Regards Neil"
Pros: "New plane. Decent legroom."
Cons: "Not enough food was served for a 16.5 hour flight."
Pros: "Spacious seats..comfortable flight and great on board service"
Pros: "Good crew lots of food and open bar."
Pros: "The food. Seriously, it's airline food but they give you a lot and it tastes really good. Easy check in, very little waiting, excellent customer service, quick boarding."
Cons: "This is something Emirates can't help but I always get stuck between really big men like a sandwich, either that or babies. And the answer is not to choose bulkhead seats because that's who's choosing those seats."
Cons: "My row was passed 4 out of the 5 times drinks went by. To say the least I was a bit thirsty on the flight."
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: "Emirates is the best airline I have ever flown. Comfort, pleasant flight attendants, great entertainment system, good food, very comfortable seating. Great lounges on the ground. Would fly them again wherever they go."
Pros: "I like all the entertainment that was provided."
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."
Pros: "Personal attention, friendly smiles, and really the crew couldn't do enough for their passengers. The entertainment was brilliant. Loved the quality screens. Thank you Emirates!"
Pros: "I was fortunate enough to get an emergency exit seat."
Cons: "The emergency exit seat was near the galley so they made a huge racket all night and I couldn't get any rest. Additionally, the service in our section of the plane was truly inferior. It took a long time to serve the meals and even longer to remove the plates. I'm also assuming they skipped us on some of the meals and drinks. Wasn't great."
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: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Boarding with Nigerians is always difficult"
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."
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: "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: "Everything as usual"
Cons: "Some rude passengers"
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: "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."

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."

Pros: "Easy, comfortable, no issues!"
Pros: "Friendly, accommodating, and professional service!"
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"
Cons: "Very poor food menu selection. For an airlines like emirates getting even the basics for Vegetarian mean was missing. A wrap offered was no where close to edible feeling. in AVML meal ordered what was offered was Pathai Noodles and some oriental vegetable preparations with Indian Achaar. didnt make any combination what so ever."
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: "Seats and leg space were uncomfortable, staff could have been friendlier and more presentable (cleaner appearance)"
Pros: "Spacious seating available/ snack/staff"
Cons: "No entainment"
Pros: "All operations a-ok"
Pros: "The business class ground crew proposed to check in our hand baggage and were very helpful. (We were in economy class) It was my birthday and i was very touched to receive a spontaneously made card and some chocolate truffles and a smile from the flight crew."
Cons: "I think the choice of films could be improved."
Pros: "Good crew and despite the short flight we even got a sandwich which was great after a long day"
Cons: "No entertainment but short flight"
Cons: "No wifi or inflight entertainment"
Pros: "the crew was great."
Cons: "they asked us to check in our carry-on because the plane was full.I had important papers so I had to explain my situation. I hate confrontation so I felt anxious and I'm already an anxious flier. I feel that this should only pertain to people with larger carry-on. my was below the average size."
Cons: "the seat did not reclined, it was broke. travel with my wife on different seat my wife had a broken knee and they assigned a seat smack in the middle of the isle and she told me she almost past out because she could not move I had a passenger in the back that was kicking my seat every few minutes and I woke up every time I went to sleep"
Pros: "Fast flight. Good service from luggage checking to landing."
Cons: "Way too spicy beef chili. Confined space on airbus."
Pros: "Service and food were good considering it was "plane food". No delay whatsoever."
Cons: "Black box under the front seat. No room for legs. Seat blocked in lower position, impossible to make it stay in upper position. Entertainment wasn't working good: extremely laggy when it was working ... Seats are way too short. You got the neck support into the upper back ... And I am only 1.80m. Overall, I am done with Swiss until they upgrade their planes. Wifi was 99usd for 220 mo ... what a joke. A 20+yo plane for a such reputated company. There was still the ashtrays inside the restrooms."
Pros: "Hard working on board crew"
Cons: "check in procedure in Berlin: That airport is different. You drive right to the gate from which you board the plane. I showed up early and was told that I had to take by suitcase to another location if I wanted to check in 3 hours early. After lugging the suitcase a quarter of a mile, I was told that they don't do that and I had to return to the designated gate at the appropriate time."
Pros: "Direct connection from San Diego to Zurich. Fresh, crispy and delicious bread on the flight!!"
Cons: "The food and service was better than that of American airlines, but no comparison to food and service of any Asian airlines (including Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways, Japan Airlines, ANA, Korean Airlines). The Edelweiss brand is too much based on outdated stereotypes and Heidiland. Nobody in Switzerland walks around dressed and make-uped like the stewardesses of Edelweiss air."
Pros: "on time, quiet, nice screen, fast luggage delivery"
Cons: "no foot step available at the seat, uncomfortable for small people who’s heels can’t reach the floor"

Я потеряла три дня отдыха. И до сих пор я дожидаясь , сижу в квартире и не знаю когда он прибудет. Я крайне не довольна To the planting, I was spoiled vacation. My luggage was lost. I have to go shopping for 3 days and spend my time on vacation, buying the necessary things, those that are necessary for recreation. I lost three days of rest. And so far I'm waiting, sitting in the apartment and I do not know when he will arrive. I am extremely unhappy"
Cons: "French unions"
Pros: "From the kind stewards to the easy meal service to my peace of mind, knowing I’ll be well taken care off - SwissAir is the same gem it’s always been."
Pros: "Flight crew, food, and seatback entertainment system (with USB charging port) were all great."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and way to close. When the person in front of me leaned their seat back, I was forced to do the same. It was nearly impossible to eat. If you had a hint of claustrophobia, you would never make this entire trip without going nuts. I noticed that many of the middle seats were unoccupied, while my family and I were crammed into four seats side-by-side. If we had empty seats between us the flight would have been bearable."
Pros: "Very well organized company beginning with the website, check in, boarding and the flight."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly good and the onboard crew was very nice and friendly. The seats seemed slightly more apart than on Lufthansa."
Cons: "The entertainment unit at my seat was really hard to hear, and from what I heard around me it seems like it's a problem at many if not most seats."

Pros: "The food was really great! And the crew was very friendly. Was pleased that everything went smoothly."

Pros: "Good crew and clean plane"
Pros: "It was comfortable."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Even though the flight felt like forever, the cabin crew did such a wonderful job at making us all feel comfortable. The food selection was great and the fact that the staff was approachable was also a great plus. Will definitely fly again using Swiss air. Thank you"
Cons: "Swiss staff was not helpful at all at Zurich airport. I wanted to purchase a day pass in the Business class lounge. They said i could do that but need to do it online. When I couldn't get my device to bring up the right screen they said they couldn't help me. Bad customerbaervixe"
Pros: "Swiss airlines was amazing"
Cons: "They were very nice attentive"
Cons: "Seat too small, no room, will never fly Swiss again. This was an 11 hour flight and I need more space and comfort."
Cons: "person behind me wouldn't allow my seat to recline and was constantly pushing/kicking my seat. I notified crew, but nothing was done about it."
Cons: "Once again, my flight was late. Four out of the last five trips to Barcelona Swiss had a significant delay (longer than the duration of the trip itself) on at least one of the segments. It's getting a bit hard to believe actually."
Pros: "Kind and efficient service. Help to board and disembark Good communication. Great customer service."
Cons: "It took some time to get our gate-checked wheel chair, but I have to say, they went out of their way to help us find it."
Pros: "Crew was great, polite and pleasant. This is the only good thing about the flight."
Cons: "The agent at the check-in had no clue what he was doing. He had to ask his neighboring agents a dozen questions to check us in (4 passengers, 3 bags and 2 car seats). On top of that, his whole demeanor was condescending, treating us as if we had never flown an airplane before. We are big are traveling light, so we had 2 small suitcases, small enough that we never have to check them in for the US domestic flights. I asked the check-in agent if the small ones were needed to be checked in or if they could be taken as carry-ons. He made a big deal that they were too big and had to be checked in. But when we boarded the plane, we saw that about a quarter of the carry-on bags in the plane were as big as our small suitcases! We were in row 30+. The leg room was the narrowest I have had in all international flights I flew in. Having longer than average legs, it was pure torture for the duration of the overnight flight. The best part of the dinner they served was the croissant - that should give you an idea. I don't think I would voluntarily choose Swiss Air again."
Pros: "Nicer plane, on time"
Pros: "Decent comfort in the plane. Friendly staff."
Cons: "My flight was delayed. This was the third time in the last 4 times I traveled this route"
Pros: "I was as comfortable as I could be"
Cons: "I was ill returning to New York , but I was blessed that no one was sitting next to me . The crew was as helpful as possible"
Pros: "enough space for a bag below the seat in front and legs"
Cons: "delayed 10-20mins, baggage delivery in bcn was very slow and priority baggage tags were ignored by ground staff, took one hour from landing to getting out"
Pros: "Crew was super attentive and kind"
Pros: "Price was good, as they had a special offer"
Cons: "Everything. Next time I rather pay a bit more and fly easyJet."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, quick boarding, great crew, good pilots."
Cons: "My laggadge was left behind in Zurich (with my medication). Given age of electronics how hard it to make sure that everything is loaded? Not hard at all. They located Laggage at 12:30, but took them 7 hour to ship to Barcelona, so it arrived at 7:30 pm to Barcelona airoport. And they only delivered next day. Not cool. Advice: read laggage tags to reading device during loading and compare with transit customers flight database."
Pros: "The skillful pilot landed so perfectly I thought we were still in the air. Perfection!!!"
Cons: "The flight was full and thanks to a rather oblivious person at check in everyone had a ton of luggage. As a result, the rearranging of all belongings delayed us significantly. We landed when I was supposed to be on my connecting flight. Thankfully the other aircraft waited."
Pros: "Was okay for a short flight"
Cons: "Almost missed the flight, the layover was too short"
Pros: "It was a 777-300ER! On Time!"
Cons: "Flight was operated with the new 777-300ER! IFEN : after 2 Min. it stopps with loading the map not rebootable! Service : no spec. Service other Airlines has done more if they intriduce new Flagships! Maître de Cabin: Not really costumer focosed!"
Pros: "Frendly staff"
Cons: "a standard sandwich it was ok but I expect more from a premium carrier"
Pros: "crew was excellent."
Cons: "seats a bit hard and cramped"
Pros: "I enjoyed the options for entertainment on board. The staff were all polite and professional. The meals were satisfying and the drink choices were great."
Cons: "uncomfortable for a long flight. could not get into a comfortable sleeping position for a long while."
Pros: "The crew was proffessonal. On flight to Cape Town from Istanbul the chef on board made was really nice. I ordered a chlid meal only to find out that it was not on the list. My son wasnt very happy with it though. Althought, the chef on board insured me that she will have a look into it...Oh well ! not a big deal ."
Cons: "Fight back to Incheon, Seoul was 3 seated. Really uncomfortable, just hoped the passenger I sat next to didn`t get annoyed with my son having to go to the bathroom quite a lot! The only problem was the long layover. The only reason why I opted for the long stopover of 20 hrs because I was told that we will receive hotel accommodation on our arrival, however that did not materialize...very disappointing. Instead we were given free meal tickets. I was totally disgust !!!"
Cons: "Canceled flight without notification, rude customer service."
Cons: "Flight cancelled multiple times without any notifications, staying over in Istanbul and having to pay $30 for Turkish visa although it was Turkish Airlines' fault."
Cons: "The crew decided it was a good idea to store their bags in the overhead bins in the back of the plane, leaving no room for the paying customers. Most people in the back of the airplane were forced to stuff their bags under their seats which already did not have enough space. On top of that the airport had boarding groups which were completely ignored and the entire boarding process turned into a cluster. The flight from America to Turkey was great but once you are in Europe the service is horrible. If I cannot get a direct flight, I will not use this airline again."
Pros: "When it's on time, this is a convenient flight to Addis."
Cons: "All information was incorrect. Passengers were told to go to gate very early and then were uninformed about late departure. We stood in a line for more than an hour because of this incorrect information. Additionally, the passengers were forced to stand in cold, windy rain because bus shuttle service and boarding was inefficient. Business class ticket holders were afforded no advantage while checking in either."
Pros: "I have no complains."
Cons: "I love this air line, thank you for your service."
Pros: "The crew was great and very helpfull, they help us change our sits so that we will sit together."
Cons: "There was no entertaiment. Only one movie to the entire flight, the screens where very small and you couldnt see the movie at and some of them didnt work at all."
Pros: "Departure and arrival times were convenient with courteous staff and great service."
Cons: "The waiting area prior to departure was crowded and noisy."
Cons: "Overall good service, but I kept getting passed over for certain things (e.g., coffee) by the flight attendant--and then I often couldn't get her attention until it was too late."
Pros: "Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "The check-in was stressful and congested."
Cons: "Due to mishandling of the situation, we were not allowed to board the plane, despite the fact there was no restriction for us not to do so."
Pros: "Good food good movies"
Cons: "Food is not great and the flight was delayed by an hour"
Cons: "Security in Istanbul on return flight required me to exit transfer area, pay $30 visa fee and check a set of hiking poles. This was not a requirement on the three other legs of this flight reservation."
Pros: "Care from the crew and consideration"
Cons: "The head phones are terrible."
Pros: "flight departed Jhb on time and arrived in Istanbul a few mins earlier than scheduled"
Cons: "1.cabin temperature varied from cold to very warm 2.I asked the cabin crew for a blanket but they forgot about it 3.I ordered a whisky with ice - was given half a tot with 2 small blocks of ice 4.only one person was serving drinks and food on my aisle so it was very slow service (other aisle had 2 crew serving)"
Cons: "Tell passengers the truth from the start!"
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: "They boarded on time, took off on time, and the service was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about an hour. Prior to that I had a 10 hour layover at the Istanbul airport. As this is busy 24 hours per day there are times that it is difficult to even find a seat to relax in let alone a spot to lay down."
Pros: "I'm 6 ft 2. Legspace was adequate, and no silly boxes under the seats like other airlines that obstruct your feet. Great entertainment systems - modern, good selection. Food and staff excellent."
Cons: "Their online checkin systems could operate a bit more smoothly. At one point, I had to go in in person, because the online checkin site had an already past flight from their codeshare partner SAS showing up as the next flight, and I couldn't perform online checkin as a result."
Pros: "Entertainment was great, crew were polite and attentive"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for anyone over 6ft tall"
Pros: "This was a normal flight. Nothing out of the norm. good food, and good entertainment selection."
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"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Hour and a half delay"
Pros: "customer service, food, entertainment."
Cons: "small seats"
Pros: "The flight was quite comfortable. We lucked out with only a partially filled flight leaving extra space to sleep. Service was friendly and the food was excellent! I was fed twice on my 9hour flight and once on my 4hour flight. Great in flight entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "My flight was delayed, and the wrong gate was initially listed for my connecting flight, causing me to miss my flight. I asked to transfer to the next flight, but the staff there argued with me and refused to do so, saying I must purchase another ticket. I was forced to purchase a visa, go through passport processing, and purchase a new ticket that cost nearly as much as my entire round trip ticket from the US. I then had to pay to stay overnight in a hotel and had to make alternate arrangements to meet my hosts when I finally reached my destination."
Pros: "Good service and perfect entertainment"
Cons: "It was very hot during the entire flight."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment- plenty of things to watch and listen to. Food was good. I also enjoyed the service, hot towels and friendliness of staff. Overall, it was a great experience!"
Cons: "Sitting next to many kids who were very noisy and messy. They completely trashed the bathrooms which did not make it fun for me to use after them. This is just what I did not like- I understand this is no fault of the airlines or their staff. I am just more aware that several Turkish families may fly back and forth with their children and as a passenger, you may be seated close to them on the plane- just a thought."
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "I booked my ticket on Kayak two months prior to the departure date. The whole reason I booked it with Turkish Airlines was because the seats were listed as "lay flat". So I paid $150 more over the other airlines for the lay flat seating on my 8 hour flight from Katmandu to Istanbul and another 10 hours on to JFK. Well the seats weren't lay flat so I feel like I got played by Kayak and didn't have a very comfortable flight."
Cons: "The additional security check for flight from Istanbul to US was somewhat unpleasant as women were called out from the line to be separated from men for security check. They should have wait for each family to come up for their turn to be checked, so families would not need to be separated for a while."
Cons: "They did not send the walker we brought with our group. It never left Istanbul and as a result one of our group members was severely injured!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 1.5 hours from its scheduled departure time. Upon arrival to Boston airport, it took a long time to find gate and disembark. As a result, I missed my boat ride connection. I had to incur hotel fees and be late for my business appointment the next morning."
Pros: "Food and Crew"
Cons: "The fact that the boarding was by bus and not through a sleeve detracts from the process."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled two days in a row. When i tried calling the 800 number call center, it didn't work. When i called the Turkey phone number, the communication was bad. After 3 days of being stranded i went to the Turkish Airlines office and they were not able to help me with a new flight or a refund so that i can purchase another ticket home."
Cons: "the kosher food was poor"
Pros: "food was good."
Cons: "narrow seating space, no reclining. my entertainment system stopped working in middle of flight just after making my original playlist. also overhead bins were not enough."
Pros: "The Knowledge that I would never fly Turkish airline again"
Cons: "Cancelled flights without contacting me Delayed takeoff for 9 hours. Took off knowing they would not be able to land in Istanbul and dropped us off in Izmir Did not cover the cost of food at the hotel in Izmir. Took us to a hotel over an hour away from the airport"
Pros: "The food was decent, as well as the movie selection."
Cons: "The crew were incredibly rude, it was badly organised, there we delays on our flights, the boarding process was a nightmare. After booking both mine and my boyfriend's tickets we were later warned that there will be an 8 hour lay over instead of the expected 3 hour (as booked). I will try my very best to avoid Turkish Airlines in the future. After taking many long haul flights in my life, I can safely say that this was my worst and most disorganised travel."
Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"
Cons: "to hot, very hot!!! ו suffered too much"
Cons: "Terrible connections. Long delays. Truly awful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 4.5 hours. We got a few drinks and snacks while waiting. No real information was provided and the flight was delayed by one hour at a time. Kids were tired and hungry. Crew did not help. After a few hours we got some blankets. We had to sleep on the airport's floor. We had to buy food. We did not know what will happen with our connection flights that most of the passengers missed because of the delay. This was a nightmare!"
Pros: "Food and service very good"
Pros: "Entertainment system is excellent, food is solid and plentiful."
Cons: "I've flown Turkish a few times before, and they're generally pretty good for the price. This trip was different. Despite Turkish Airlines policies outlined in their "Customer Rights," I received no notification that the flight was delayed 3 hours, and there was no notification at the JoBurg airport until you go to the counter to check in. JoBurg staff - which are Menzies third-party contractors, not Turkish staff - were disorganized, uncommunicative, and unhelpful. Only one person at the check in desk seemed to have authorization to make any changes, so all other agents were running back and forth to speak with him, and not communicating with passengers. It took over an hour to get clarity on the situation and rebook my connecting flight to Washington for a different flight 8 hours later. The only compensation offered was one meal voucher worth R100 (roughly $7). They would not even look at other Star Alliance flights for early arrival in Washington, and said they were not authorized to consider upgrading my ticket. When I called the Turkish customer service, they essentially said "What do you want us to do about it? You have to submit a formal complaint." Boarding was totally disorganized. In theory there are boarding groups, but after business class and all the high-ranking loyalty members, it's pretty much a mad rush. This seems to be the common practice for Turkish now. In general, Turkish has a great entertainment system on all their long-haul flights, with tons of movies - including very new releases - music, games, etc. They also provide complimentary kits with socks, slippers, eye mask, earplugs and dental kit, even for economy passengers. The meals are fairly good for airlines. However, legroom in economy isn't great. I'm 6'1", and had difficulty getting comfortable with my knees jammed into the back of the seat in front of me. On this particular flight, I was in row 18. The cabin crew were frantic, disorganized, and shouting to each other across passengers. One half of our row was served the meal, and the other half had to wait over 30 minutes to be served for some reason. By that time the vegetarian option was no longer available. Crew also had to run back and forth between service carts because they were frequently out of very common beverages (like sparkling water. And ice.), and on two occasions crew left a drawer from a cart full of trash sitting in the aisle. There were several times that crew ran carts into passengers - including once into my knee that was not in the aisle - and didn't even acknowledge doing so. They also stopped the carts in front of occupied lavatories, temporarily trapping passengers. So not terribly professional. While not specifically on this flight, the experience in Istanbul airport with Turkish Airlines' staff was awful. Zero interest in helping, rude and dismissive, and overall terrible."
Pros: "Departed on time, smooth sailing."
Cons: "no entertainment available"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Seat !!"
Pros: "Seat size was decent, not like us airlines, there’s actually space for you knees."
Pros: "Very good drink service (one cold and one hot drink)"
Pros: "Nothing, we never got to go on our flight to Vienna. The only good thing is the manager, Servando, found us an alternative route after some delay. Even then, we had to haggle and really fight for fair treatment for a mistake that was 100% the airline's fault."
Cons: "Our seats were involuntarily given away by the airport staff. We were never notified until we were scanning our tickets to board in. At that time, we had already checked in and received our boarding passes, as well as checking in 3 bags while we were traveling with a large group. There was no way we wanted to volunteer our seats, especially since we had a transfer flight to catch. We clearly stated we did NOT want to volunteer our seats at the ticket counter. No staff notified us until we were about to get on the plane to board. The flight supervisor was very rude and unprofessional, offering us no alternative solutions. I was really disappointed with such a grievous mistake by the airline, and I would not recommend flying Austrian Airlines unless it was absolutely the only airline available. They need to fix their processes for authorizing when they volunteer a passenger's seat. This caused our group a lot of stress and almost became a logistical nightmare."
Cons: "THey denied me and I lost all tickets including back trips as well. Nobody helped me to change tickets, they just care about money and reselling my tickets to other passengers."
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all. No movies, no music, absolutely nothing. If i could have rated it with no stars i would have."
Cons: "We were almost three hours late on arrival. Being at VIE airport after midnight with no buses going home is no fun."
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Cons: "All was well"
Pros: "boarding/deplaning relatively quick. plenty of leg room in emergency row seat"
Cons: "only provided ONE meal on an 11 hour flight?? how is that ok? people were very hungry. when i asked about that, the disinterested flight attendants tried to convince me that they had in fact provided “two services” -they apparently think a small packet of crackers counts as dinner. shortly before landing they served a stale ham sandwich (8 hours after the only meal). Food quality was poor as well. during booking there was not an option to indicate dietary requirements either. not impressed with austrian air overall."
Pros: "Boarding/deplaning quick Left on time"
Cons: "Food -too much starch Only chicken No breakfast Bathrooms were dirty"
Pros: "I had double seat all to myself so that was nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2hrs because of the strike - very annoying. The food was average for the plane foodn but the desert was excellent"
Pros: "It was fine"
Pros: "Very comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "Not having an opportunity to serve water because it was time to prepare for landing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Ended up on Swiss Air. Only good thing about Austrian was they booked us on other flights at the check in desk."
Pros: "easy boarding"
Cons: "bad seating. you previously provided a comfort kit but discontinued it."
Pros: "The food was tasty, the crew was nice and overall it was realy good"
Cons: "There wasn't any movies or music as entertainment"
Pros: "I will never travel with Austrian airlines again"
Cons: "My flight was cancel,then they transfer me to swees airlines they checked me in they took my luggage and then they told me I can't travel coz I can't make 2 stops inside the Europe. I have to wait 1 hour and 30 minutes to fine my bags . I went back and forth from terminal 1 and 4 many times.The changed my flight to turkey airlines and I wait 9 more hours at airport to check in again. Terrible experience ☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️"
Pros: "Staff was nice."
Cons: "flight was late."
Pros: "Well, at least they didn't overbook it like the horror the connector to LAX was"
Cons: "Waited longer to start boarding the plane than the flight took. There are 2 gates in Lugano "airport" and no plane or flight at the other gate. Shouldn't be this difficult. The inflight crew was nice and attentive for the little time we saw them but the ground crew never ev n bothered to make an announcement. Just had us sitting there like a heard of cattle."
Cons: "Food I think getting worse."
Pros: "Flight was on time ,"
Pros: "Food and service was great as always! comfortable seats and quality in flight entertainment!"
Cons: "The gate of flight was changed 2 times in short period, that's why i lost my plane. No possibility if rebooking the flight, only buying a new ticket for 700€. Crazy!"
Cons: "The vegetarian meal was OK"
Pros: "Great staff, friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Attention during waiting time and inside cabin"
Cons: "Flight cancelled, after delays... Then almost four more hours to get rescheduled in a different flight the next day and taken to a local hotel!"
Pros: "Fastboarding, left on time. Cleaner aircraft, too small for carry on. Carry on promised at staircase, delivered at luggage claim."
Pros: "Easy online check-in and boarding pass access also linked to wallet."
Cons: "I was not aware of additional luggage charges when I booked my ticket. It would be helpful to have a warning about that and the fact that if you do not prepay online you are charged double. I also was not aware of the type of a ticket I booked, e.g. Economy light and what it meant for luggage fees."
Pros: "Glad to have coffee and sweet treat. Attentive and pleasant crew."
Cons: "While boarding, the AC was off due to a mechanical issue. The plane was uncomfortably hot, but the pilot and flight attendants were appropriately apologetic. The issue was resolved once we took off."
Pros: "Fast and short flight between Vienna and Warsaw. Not much good or bad."
Cons: "Shuttle bus from the terminal took awhile to leave to the plane. No air conditioning to the shuttle. Very hot. Was uncomfortable."
Cons: "Been traveling with Auystrian for a while now and so far so good, I'm very satisfied"
Pros: "best blanket in any business class. should be sold on line."
Cons: "Less than 24 hours notice."
Pros: "Free food, entertainment and wasnt full"
Cons: "Normal airline food.... what can you do I paid more in taxes and fees than the ticket. Seems wrong"
Pros: "Service was efficient and satisfactory."
Cons: "There is an extra charge to reserve a seat in advance. I lost my wallet and glasses case on board. They fell out of my carryon. They clearly had fallen under my seat and likely had slipped to rows in front of or behind that seat. I discovered their loss after going through security in Vienna. Customer service contacted the plane immediately, but we were told they were not there. Clearly little effort was spent to find them and Austrian Airline has not helped."
Cons: "Seats fold to something like 1 degree in the economy class; feels more like a lowcost only expensive."
Pros: "Was upgraded to business.Loved it all!"
Pros: "Our flight was canceled without noticing us. It was a flight that we bought 4 months before. It took them 50 minutes to give us another flight that landed with a 1,5 hour delay. It is not nice to wait extra 4 hours in an airport after a transoceanic flight with a 5 month old baby. I did not know that company but now I do for their poor management"
Pros: "Seating spaciousness"
Cons: "Entertainment ( I enter this in this space because you did not offer a "not applicable" category. On short flight there is no entertainment offered)"
Pros: "On time pleasant crew"
Pros: "Free of charge wine"
Cons: "Nothing wrong with the staff or flight itself. However, I had to wait to be checked in because the plane was overbooked. In such cases precedence should be given to people who bought their ticket earlier. I did so about 2 months before. I don't know why it had to be exactly me and another guy who had to wait, and not somebody else. The biggest fail: Because of me having to wait until the check in closed to be allowed to check in, my luggage didn't have time to reach the plane before its departure. I reached my final destination without my luggage waiting for me at the conveyor belt. It arrived a day later."
