Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I would have appreciated that with ALL required paperwork, my stay at check in point would have lasted a little less than two hours I spent standing and waiting for a feedback."
Cons: "Updating clients and offering a seat if it’s a long wait could have improved the situation. It is on reception that the business gets its impression. Thanks."
Pros: "Everything great!"
Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and professional"
Cons: "Food wasn't great"
Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Cons: "The Entertainment screen wasn’t working"
Pros: "Great crew and food. Nice economy class."
Pros: "Nice crew, 1 hr free WiFi"
Cons: "Significant delay on jetway, temps uncomfortable,"
Pros: "They greeted us in Georgian at the gate during boarding, this was very nice."
Cons: "Entertainement could have been better, there was no in flight entertainement at all. The food alos remains to be improved."
Pros: "I think that my review and comments about the first portion of the flight apply equally to the second portion of the flight. Despite my criticism of the food, the flight attendant service was above expectations."
Cons: "The food. Hire a chef that knows how to make the food palatable."
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: "Crew was excellent. Very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Need a variety. Curry is not for everyone."
Pros: "decent leg room. the staff was accommodating"

Pros: "They do their job well"
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: "Great flight. Everything was good. The only very small issue is hey offer WiFi but even if you pay the allocation of data make you feel like you living in the 1990. 10 meg free and 300 meg for a whole flight is a complete joke, especially for USD 30. They could manage protocols but give a reasonable service."
Pros: "Qatar is a reliable airline."
Cons: "No matter how many times I have traveled with Qatar (5 international flights in the last year); I still do not receive any benefits such a priority boarding or upgrades."
Pros: "The service from check-in till landing was on the ball and superb. They were friendly and eager to assist with everything. They have the latest movies and shows to watch on their in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "great crew and food."
Cons: "being charged excess baggage when one suitcase weigh under weight. Having to wait at the terminal for a hour and a half because of bad weather -- not the pilot's fault"
Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"
Cons: "They lost my bag and that’s disappointing considering I have my bank account details in that bag. Very disappointed by this"
Pros: "The in flight service was great.. Crew was excellent."
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: "On O-Hare Airport, Qatar Air Line's staff is very rod, I never recommend to anyone. Now if anyone ask from me then i refuse to buy Qatar Aiway ticket then they buy Emirate or other air line tickets"
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: "Food was great, good selection of entertaiment and movies, seat comfortable (even for economy class). Very friendly flight attendants. This was my first flight with Qatar and I'm now a big fan"
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: "Left and arrived on time, meals were above expectations."
Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."
Pros: "Excellent in every way. Clearly a top tier airlines. I will choose Qatar Airlines at every opportunity."
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Pros: "The timing was spot on and I had no major issues. The staff was great. They showed that they truly value customer service and were patient"
Cons: "The song selections were somewhat old and should be looked at."
Pros: "I enjoyed the staff"
Cons: "The screens were old school and I HS a hard time getting it to work Also the sleep mask I received had sticky stuff all over it when I opened the package."
Pros: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."
Cons: "Because of poor connection, arrived for flight 15 min. before departure. Gate agent wouldn't allow us to board and wouldn't help us rebook. Offered no help."
Pros: "Seat space. Stevice. Terminal."
Pros: "Cabin crew was pleasant and at least smiled."
Cons: "Why was it necessary to have to queue to present your boarding pass to get into a sitting area only to have to queue again to actually board the plane? What was the point of having priority access with status with Qatar Airways as an economy passenger to get into the seating area only to have to wait for ALL other passengers to then board ahead of you onto the actual plane especially when they say they allow priority boarding for those with status on the airline?"
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."
Pros: "Amazing and efficient when we had to be rerouted due to the hurricane we had excellent service and care at the hotel which made my stay for a short while a memorable"
Cons: "The plane was quite congested as the seats were very narrow coming back to Miami"
Pros: "The crew was very professional and polite, my flight attended (blond lady) was very pleasant and very professional. She should be promoter to teach others how to be professional without kiss passenger's a*s."
Cons: "Could be better if the check in line employee were be able to sell one way ticket to Boston at 13:20hr , instead I had to purchased round trip just to get at my destination at planned time. Also I had to pay 30 dollars to go get the next flight at 18:59hrs , which was extremely inconvenient."
Pros: "As expected of Delta. With Covid, even the food service understandably was limited. They had prepackaged goodies, albeit not much flexibility, but I had no complaints. Mid row was empty per Covid, for flight comfort, this was somewhat a plus. Knowing air was filtered with HEPA filters every 2 minutes with fresh oxygen and outside air mix was also reassuring."
Cons: "Slat Lake is not good for mobility challenged people."
Cons: "So professional during this pandemic. I felt safe the whole time. Slept like a baby, the flight was so smooth."
Pros: "I appreciate the care Delta has for their passengers during this pandemic. From the seat spacing to the boarding process great measures were taken."
Pros: "Definitely pick comfort plus on this flight if you can. You can walk around a lot more on this flight compared to other flights. Food was really good! Recommend the overnight flights...."
Cons: "More leg room would have been nice..."
Pros: "Crew, movies"
Cons: "Too many announcements. It seems like they were announcing something all the time and it became annoying."
Cons: "Bathroom floors could be better."
Cons: "The website could work for starters"
Pros: "I asked at the gate to change my seat in row 30 because I was not next to my husband. The crew arranged this! Loved the leg room! Service was perfect."
Cons: "Flying first class!"
Cons: "Cramped seats, no a/c on tarmac for extended period because of technical issue, ancient entertainment system. Old plane with minimal overhead bin space, delayed flight"
Pros: "Crew was good. As always not enough leg room if you are taller. Resent having to pay extra for more leg room."
Pros: "Crew was good. Food was good."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for an hour. Legroom in economy was tight."
Pros: "The ctew was awesome, super sweet and very acomodating"
Cons: "Its a flight to WV (my birth place).... it is what it is... smll planes, tight quarters and people who don’t get any of that and are not happy anout any of it"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly hard and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and super helpful."
Cons: "Just the fumes of fuel inside the cabin was nauseating. Never had similar issue with air travel before."
Pros: "It's a nice and short flight so can't ask for too much. Quick to board and deplane"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by close to an hour. Being a late flight it made for an overly long travel day."
Cons: "Keep being the example other airlines shoud follow. Awesome job Delta."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment. There was a problem with the seat of the person in front of me. He couldn't keep his seat straight and his head was in my lap throughout the flight."
Pros: "The entire process was easy and seamless. The flight staff was professional and accommodating. Free liquor. Great food."
Pros: "seating, food, service"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, the flight was on time."
Cons: "But the seats are so tight that we were definitely elbow to elbow and once seated I was unable to access even the purse that was at my feet. There was no entertainment and the tray table was tiny, not even an indentation for a cup!"
Pros: "Boardin process was Ok"
Cons: "Due to several issues we were delayed in 3,5 hours"
Pros: "Although our flight was fully booked. The crewmembers on this flight was professional, friendly and efficient. We boarded quickly and took off on time. We even arrived ahead of schedule. Each passenger was given free headphones and complimentary beverages and snacks. I love Delta they are a cut above the rest. They are constantly striving to put the customers needs and wants top priority"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "An updated 717. A bit better"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight. I never flew home. I missed my little Sister's graduation. :o("
Pros: "The fact I arrived safely"
Cons: "Delayed 40 min then boarded the plane without pilots. Waited another 30 mins for pilots and by the time they got there and settled weather delayed. Sat on plane for another 30 mins then were finally let off the plane. Quiet announcements for reboard most passengers late. Then waited in line for take off for another 25 min. Whole thing was poorly executed. Would expect better from a large airline"
Pros: "The crew were nice and friendly. The plane was new with lots of amenities"
Cons: "The new plane has NO leg room at all. It’s the worst leg room i’ve Experienced for such a large plane. I’m 6’1” and my knees would only fit if I spread my legs wide and sit back deep into the chair."
Cons: "Flight cancelled because of weather"
Pros: "The crew made a really uncomfortable situation (maintenance on an antenna for an hour after we had boarded the plane but before we left the gate) bearable. All flight attendants and the pilot and co-pilot were pleasant and sympathetic to the frustration."
Cons: "I think there needs to be an additional element to the seat selector that does not allow two very big guys to sit next to each other, thereby making all three seats very unpleasant- and I say this as one of the big guys."
Pros: "Large jet, attentive crew, on time."
Pros: "Comfort Plus seating was good for the long flight, lots of choices for entertainment."
Cons: "Some crew members were rather cold in their manner, either disinterested or grumpy. Electric outlet didn't work. On screen entertainment touch screen was very difficult to use (unresponsive to touch)."
Pros: "The crew was gracious and accommodating."
Cons: "The plane showed wear and tear. We paid for delta+ premium economy and an exit row. The seating map online was misleading and we ended up next to the bathroom. The exit row food tray was broken and was hard to even sit a good tray on. The emergency exit door isn’t well insulated and we were absolutely freezing cold the entire flight. The seats were hard and uncomfortable. The food was not good for international travel. Overall I was very disappointed in this flight. I travel the world and on long hauls the planes need to be cleaned well and seats in working order."
Cons: "Older plane and seemingly frustrated crew. They had very little patience."
Pros: "Left on time!"
Cons: "Too cramped"
Cons: "The flight was an older crew , seem a bit rude sometimes especially during the beverage and meal services. Not all of the flight crew was like that, but the over all feeling existed."
Pros: "Nothing. Delta is the worst. Delta is awful. Don't fly Delta."
Cons: "I wouldn't know how our flight to Sioux Falls was. Delta left without us, after they made us late. We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."
Pros: "Timely flights , plenty of good food and disciplined serving Amsterdam: good layover Modern plane Better entertainment system Good flight to travel to India , Mumbai ."
Cons: "Windows weren't clean for stargazing"
Cons: "Seats are in humane"
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly and borderline rude. I felt like when I asked for anything or was just up stretching my legs that I was bothering them. There was also quite bit of turbulence in the first two hours- I have traveled a lot and I felt like it took the pilots too long to find a smoother altitude."
Pros: "Avg flight"
Cons: "They changed my seat to a worse one without any explanation. I picked my seats on line for a reason and dont like them changed. Older MD series plane from AUS to ATL."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats too close. Food lacks salads. Fruit salad tasteless--fruit not ripe--looks good, but no taste."
Pros: "Food was not offered on a short flight, the one star does not mean bad. There was no other option same for entertainment"
Pros: "Had to go through an extra random security check before boarding along with several other passengers. Looong flight, but expected when traveling that distance. Slept and watched movies. Best part: the pilot pointed out that Greenland was visible outside our windows as we flew over."
Cons: "Nothing. It was a smooth flight. Very comfortable."
Pros: "Everything was just as I have come to expect -- efficient, polite, and courteous crewe"
Pros: "The gate agents and flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "We were not able to choose our seats until we got to the airport. Which was a waste of time since we did online check in but still needed to go to the self check for seat assignment. Then by that time it was too late to try to get a seat with my wife who is very afraid to fly. Overall not a good experience"
Cons: "Two overhead bins burst open during takeoff. it's pretty scared when luggage could potentially come flying at your face."
Pros: "Got on earlier flight as standby."
Cons: "No blanket if you're not 1st class lol. I haven't flew in solo long, idk,i thought they were complimentary lol. & cups of water? What happened to the Shasta's lol."
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"
Pros: "The plane size & comfort was excellent. The staff were very friendly"
Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"
Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."

Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"
Pros: "Customer care was super supportive"
Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"
Pros: "Seats were super comfortable, bigger than most planes with extra leg room. Food was excellent and fresh, amazing Dutch cheese sampler was divine. No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."
Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"
Pros: "Seat was comfy and spacious for economy class"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was okay but could be more enjoyable if served with bread at start of meal."
Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"
Cons: "We had 4 hour delay causing a stop over at 3am. So yeah"
Pros: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Really was unsure of why I had to purchase a ticket as I was able to pick my own on the way to Billund"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."
Pros: "Crew were great, food, entertainment, seat and everything else was great as well."
Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."
Pros: "The flight arrived a few minutes early."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and in poor repair. The seats were extremely close together. The inflight entertainment system, wifi and passenger electric outlets were all non-functional. Even the wastebin in the lavatory was full and an extra bag was put on the floor."
Pros: "They considered my reguest of vegiterian food."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "old screens and entertainment system leg room to small"

Pros: "Face recognition was amazing"
Cons: "Too hot on plane"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Long, slow line at check in. Not many new movies or tv shows"
Pros: "The crew was efficient. Flight left on time. Food and wine served."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."
Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Cons: "I can't take the flight because i'm not Chilean and I don't have a reembolse or other flight ,... nothing . Finally I take other flight with other company"
Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful personnel."
Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."
Pros: "quick and relaxed"
Pros: "Good multi media access and content"
Pros: "Easy boarding, plenty of room"
Pros: "Equally friendly crew and experience. It was complimented by the time we got to spend in the fantastic KLM lounge while we waited for the flight."
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."
Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "The staff and crew"
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Enough space good wine and on time"
Pros: "We love the flight all the way"
Pros: "Except for my negative comment, a good flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, but due to the poor alignment of the seats with the actual windows, I actually sat next to a wall! Nol much to see out of a wall. If KLM are going to charge extra for a window seat, then they should make sure there is a window there! If the seat had actually had a window it would have been an excellent flight."
Pros: "Plane service"
Cons: "1h30min delay at airport"
Pros: "KLM Is an impressive flying experience. We enjoyed the comfortable seats, the in-flight entertainment, and the food. The flight attendants are top notch as well."
Cons: "The only complaint I have regarding my most recent flight was the incredibly rude service staff whom we experienced at the front counter at check-in. After a harrowing cab ride to the airport in which our driver continuously ignored my request to follow the GPS insisting that he knew faster shortcuts, we arrived 40 minutes later than intended. Additionally he dropped us off at the wrong terminal such that we finally arrived at the KLM gate an hour later than we had planned. This was especially frustrating as we are traveling with two small children and made every effort to be punctual and leave early to be sure we got there with time to spare. Not the case today. All of that I could deal with, but when we arrived at the KLM counter, and I apologized to the attendant staff member that we were late and explained that our cab driver got lost, she responded by chastising us first in Spanish and then in broken English. She made sure to make it clear to us that it was our fault and we should not blame the Argentinian cabdriver. The cabdriver was not actually Argentinian, but that is totally besides the point. I was totally taken aback to be treated so rudely as a greeting at the airline counter. My wife share the same sentiment. Nothing like this has ever happened to us before. Thank God, every single airport personnel and of course KLM staff member on board was incredibly kind and accommodating of our children subsequent to this. It saved what otherwise could've been a terrible experience."
Pros: "10 hour flight - I was well looked after, regular drinks, the food and snacks were good enough and tasty. The in flight entertainment was good - latest movies and worked a great variety of tv, books and movies. The airplane was modern and comfortable"
Pros: "Clean plane , good crew ,"
Cons: "they didn't load my baggage from flight 1 to 2"
Pros: "Crew asked us if we’d like to move to an empty row to be more comfortable without us even requesting it."
Cons: "Bigger coffee cups? Really nothing to complain about. Everything I would expect from a flight. A++"
Pros: "The seats were bigger across the shoulder area and had more padding than some other budget airlines."
Cons: "Wish there was more elbow room in the seat. I am a big guy and I was having to squish myself so as to not interfere with my neighbor"
Pros: "I've never been on a flight with such narrow seat and thin cushion. There was no entertainment offered for the almost 4 hour flight. There was no means of charging any electronic gears. The airplane seems to be 30 years behind time. Crew was unfriendly and smiling faces are not part of the uniform."
Cons: "Very narrow seats and thim cushion. No entertainment offered an do means of recharging electronic devices."
Pros: "Spacious business class seats, excellent meals"
Cons: "Lack of ventilation in cabin, and staff refusal to turn heaters down (in September), very limited entertainment options."
Pros: "Entertainment programs"
Cons: "New variety of food"
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment. Terrible experience at CDG airport but that’s the airports fault."
Pros: "Amasing crew"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable on Business Class. Service is good"
Cons: "Constant delays specially from CDG! Poor cabin service specially on this flight."
Pros: "Everything! The service was exceptional!"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Food could be better, or at least be provided an option to purchase an upgraded meal. Also, insufficient amount of drinking water provided to passengers."
Cons: "Everything very good"
Pros: "Red wine was excellent"
Cons: "Bright lights on throughout flight, would have been nice to dim lights for late night flight so passengers could rest"
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are a brilliant idea!"
Cons: "An explanation to passengers as to why there was a backup between the gate and the plane."
Pros: "Nice staff. Flight on time."
Cons: "Bus to plane. Long walk to terminal upon arrival. Long Liong customs line?!!??"
Cons: "Better in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air conditioning too cold. Wasn't offered an evening meal. My luggage went missing and I'm still waiting for it to be delivered."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food could have been much better in comparison with other airlines."
Cons: "Flying back to US, passsengers get charged for their luggage. Which this is not informed to us, neither On our email nor when we were checking ( for free) in Us"
Cons: "Old plane."
Pros: "The Air France service was ok. Got me to my destination on time and alive."
Cons: "I flew out on KLM on what felt like a new plane. Amazing service, seat, temperature, entertainment and food. In stark comparison Air France’s plane was old, too hot, poor entertainment choices and system and average food which for the French was surprising!"
Pros: "Quick and efficient not lying more to say or critique."
Cons: "Coffee and a bread roll as a snack??"
Cons: "My entire travel experience became extremely rushed and chaotic due to my flight being canceled and me being alerted -LESS THAN AN HOUR BEFORE IT TOOK OFF! This is unacceptable."
Pros: "That we were heading home. Nice seats. Good food. Lots of entertainment choices. Power plugs ( USB and European power) were appreciated. Wine as a choice with meal was appreciated and brandy after the meal."
Cons: "Some of the shows and movies were a bit 'trashy'. Long flight. I was in the middle seat next to an inattentive octanegarian who was nice but kept calling the flight crew to fix her mess up of the video system. No air controls on this plane - so it was overly warm. 10 hours of overly warm makes for a stinky passenger. Oof."
Cons: "My luggage was lost in Paris. Now I need to wait still."
Pros: "1. Entertainment - Decent movie selection. I wished the angle of the screen in economy could be adjustable as well. Turkish Air does it better. Once the seat ahead of me reclines I dont have too much hope of saving my eyes from the awkward angles."
Cons: "1. Boarding - Learn from maybe Turkish Air who allocate people zones based on where you are seated in the plane. People seated all the way in the back should be allowed to board first and fill the plane back to front. Makes it less likely for you stand around waiting for people as well people all the way in the back making contact with every possible human already seated in the aisles. 2. Comfort - Window seats are too hot, middle aisle seats are too cold 3. Thankfully they do have halal offering. Now if they will even let me choose that I am allergic to seafood. Glad for the chicken. Nothing to boast about."
Cons: "Canceled flight—absolutely no notification. Convoluted rebooking in whcuhbhey lies to us about what flights we were actually on. Spent a couple hours at Delta rebooking our trip. Lost prepaid night at hotel and dinner eaecatuon plus day of vacation."
Pros: "That flight have been short"
Cons: "Fly attendants have been in hurry when they served snack"
Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was horrible and it involved climbing down steep stairs from the air tunnel to the tarmac to board a bus that took us to a far distance where the plane was parked. Had to new walk in the sweltering heat to the plane can climb up steep stairs in the heat! We were now kept in the plane for another hour with no aircondotion. It was boiling hot in there. We had to use the safety manuals to fan ourselves. We eventually left late and got to Lagos one and half hours we were meant to get there. Lastly not all the luggage arrived. Two days into my arrival and I am yet to get all my luggage. It was truly a horrible experience which was echoed by fellow passengers."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and always gave the feeling that they want the customers to feel comfortable and enjoy the flight. One of the crew members even offered me to move to an emergency exit seat (without me asking to move) because I am tall. Amazing!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Pros: "The friendliness and courtesy of the staff."
Cons: "One piece of my luggage was left behind in Paris."
Pros: "Arriving safely."
Cons: "We didn't get boarding passes for the second flight at EDI so we had to exit the secure area, get boarding passes, and go through security a second time for the same trip."
Cons: "Movies were dated. Crew spoke limited and broken English, not good enough for international flights."
Cons: "It was delayed. I missed my flight. Now I don’t have a bag. I am not sure when I get it back or if I have to go all the way back to the airport"
Pros: "Nothing special"

Cons: "The unprofessional staff during boarding and food serving"

Pros: "Good on a short flight"
Cons: "Paying for carry on due to weight limit. First time this ever happened!"
Pros: "The flight crew and flights itself were great."
Cons: "I was told the wrong flight time, wrong terminal, wrong gate, and wrong airline. I couldn't check-in online. It was horribly inconvenient and I nearly missed the flight. We got there with 5 minutes until the doors closed."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful Helpful, pleasant, capable"
Cons: "Waiting for late passengers & their luggage"
Pros: "Movie selection was awesome! Food was good too."

Pros: "I like service of AF"
Pros: "Panamá airport is a disaster, unorganized and dirty"
Cons: "Panamá airport"
Pros: "quick flight 10 min ahead schedule"
Pros: "Excellent choice of movies. Great service. Friendly crew."
Cons: "I requested a lacto-ovo vegetarian meal, which I received. However, it appears the meal was also vegan. Normally, that would be okay except one of the two standard meal choices was also vegetarian and seemed much better. Since I had selected lacto-ovo vegetarian, it seems I was not allowed to select the standard vegetarian option. Hard not to have cheese on an Air France flight - just saying :-)"
Pros: "Efficient once we got going"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was slurring a lot... and they must not have had much time in between flights because we were 20 min delayed after hearing they had to get food."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and very helpful."
Cons: "Wish they offered the headphones for the small tvs like last time."
Pros: "The extra legroom for economy plus seats"
Cons: "The food was tiny and not good"

Cons: "1 out of 2 bags came on a later plane."
Cons: "Late late late"
Pros: "Movies and drinks"
Cons: "More frequent service"
Cons: "Boarding at CDG in Paris was chaotic. Called group 1 and 2 to line up but boarding didn’t start for approx 45 minutes."
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working 100% so it was spotty but otherwise 2hr flight went along."
Pros: "The food was OK."
Cons: "I have been flying all over the world on many different airlines. This was my first international flight on United. The 777 we were on had NO inflight intertainment system! The HVAC system switched from to Hot to to Cold and was mostly Freezing. The reading light controls were cross wired from different seats and aimed all wrong. The Flight attendants were mostly old and grumpy."

Pros: "Crew was fast"
Cons: "Food was too little and not so great"
Pros: "Being able to charge my phone."
Cons: "Cramped, the only thing they gave us to eat was a cookie (literally ONE cookie. Unless you paid extra - it was a six hour flight, even southwest gives you free crackers and peanuts), the WiFi was ridiculously expensive, they don’t give you a lid for your hot drinks so my tea spilled all over my lap."
Pros: "Everything was excellent but the decent was probably the roughest I've ever experienced. The poor Stewart ran with bags and wet naps up to touch down. The beverage and pretzels were great."
Cons: "Everything was excellent. We did receive a beverage but no pretzels."
Pros: "Boarding went quickly."
Cons: "Landing early, then sitting on the plane for an hour and a half, which made me miss my connection for the second time in my last two united flights. Being given no assistance in how you rectify my situation and having to figure it out myself, then boarding the next flight late. Recieving no compensation for the inconveniences United caused me on both of the last two flights I've taken with them."
Pros: "I liked the free entertainment!"
Cons: "It wa really warm on the plane. The air conditioning needs to be a bit cooler."
Pros: "The gate agent in Syracuse was a huge help. I have a service dog and he was very helpful and considerate."

Cons: "in the last row battling for share if the armrest."
Pros: "Flight was not cancelled Not delayed Electronic boarding pass worked well I was able to take my small suitcase on the flight"
Cons: "I would like to have a nonstop flight from CLE TO MADISON WISCONSIN. The previous Continental flight was extremely efficient. Now it takes 4-5 hours with security and a layover."
Pros: "The crew was again nice enough to find an empty seat next to mine."
Cons: "The layover was very short. Fortunately, the gates were very close together. However, since I didn't have time to get lunch in the terminal, I had a snack box for lunch, too. This was rather monotonous. There aren't enough chocolate choices on the snack menu. There were no limes for my beverage. There was no in-flight entertainment available. I had hoped to finish the movie I started on the first leg."
Pros: "The size of the pane. :) it was very comfortable."
Cons: "The attitude of the captains first lieutenant"
Pros: "Quick and friendly service. No lines through TSA"
Pros: "Coldest flight ever, they don't get it do they?"

Pros: "Not applicable. Appreciate 40 minute flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight which didn't bother me as was due to maintenance. Couldn't hear the gate agent over the microphone. Updates of delay could have been more that just the initial announcement. Snack bag had 8pieces in it."
Pros: "The plane was punctual, and the captain got us home in less time than we expected. Excellent."
Cons: "A couple degrees more of seat recline would not have bothered me from either end. I would not have felt intruded upon had the gentleman in front of me had another degree or two, and I might have been able to find a comfortable napping position that didn't leave me uncomfortable. We didn't eat anything on the flight this time, but the complimentary snacks on our other flight were tasty, and the Gin&Tonic was exactly what I needed. While we didn't pay for the in-flight entertainment, we know the entertainment is exceptional, and were only disappointed we were pinching pennies. Boarding was pleasant enough in Newark, but Orlando is a terrible airport, and people there seem very ill-mannered. Not United staff, just people in general."
Pros: "Fast loading and effect attendant"
Pros: "Crew on board was nice"
Cons: "extensive delay from maintenance prior to flight,"
Pros: "United is so caring and considerate. ❤️"
Pros: "Quick to dapart"
Cons: "Quick to de-board"
Cons: "UA5132 SBP -> LAX -> ORD My return flight wasn’t better. I arrived at the airport early because I couldn't check in online. First United staff couldn't find my reservation for 10/9. When they finally did I was informed that the flight, once again, was delayed for more than an hour and that there was a high likelihood that I'd miss my connection, once again, to my final destination. I ended up having to select a completely different flight the following day. So I missed an entire day of work. Not surprisingly, this flight was also delayed, landing 30 minutes late."
Cons: "no outlets, no tv, no wifi"
Cons: "Very difficult to get to EWR from Brooklyn and the departure was changed 6 times that afternoon."
Pros: "It was on time which was good"
Pros: "Easy mobile boarding pass was great on the way to Mexico City. I was kept up to date on the delay coming back to Houston."

Cons: "Flight attendants rude. Super late and no offer for a drink voucher even"
Pros: "courteous attendents and airport personnel. on time flight"
Pros: "Everything met my expectations"

Pros: "I was well accomendated after a seating problem"
Pros: "I like the cheap upgrade to first class"
Cons: "There was no food on an evening flight of over 2 hrs"
