Crew members were very helpful.. overall everything was excellent.

Poor boarding. Missed connecting flight. Had to stay in airport for 7 extra hours. Meal was provided but no accommodation provided and no lay flat seats. Would have been satisfied if a place to stay were provided for

Needs to improve

N/A

Qatar airways Customer service is terrible in some countries especially in Iraq, very unprofessional, helpless, and very rude!

Food was a disaster, and that’s in the business class ..

My TV screen was freezing, it was hard to navigate. Everything else was just excellent.

Cons: "Nothing I could think of"
Pros: "The crew was very cheerful and helpful even though I was puking my guts out on a long flight with a lot of turbulence"

Pros: "Crew was very accommodating"
Pros: "Service and entertainment."
Cons: "Food."
Cons: "see my words above. it is bad tryout with your site. there no responsibility. i am very upset about your negligence of your clients."
Pros: "Cabin crew service was very good. Flght with Airbus 350 plane was really comfortable and quite. They put extra care for kids and babies and all of kids get gift bag with toys, chocolate etc. which makes everyone happy Especially kids. I personally like to watch new release movies and enjoyed to pass my flight time."
Cons: "Their south indian food was testless in both inbound and outbound flight from Philadelphia to doha. Snacks was good but meal definitely they should have better to change it."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Food is good except Chicken coconut curry"
Cons: "The seat from Jakarta to Doha, especially the head/neck holder was uncomfortoble. Too big and stiff and wasn’t on the right possition even though it is adjustable. One of the crew didn’t say anything, not even smile after she opened the curtain between bussiness and economy class at row J K L. She just walked away."
Pros: "Gave food vouchers due to extended layover. Marché food quality is average at best."
Cons: "Biggest problem was late arrival, missing connection. Lateness caused by them at first, then a departing passenger caused further delay. But they were late to begin with. Next problem was their REFUSAL to give me an aisle seat. I reserved an aisle seat originally, aisle seats were available when I tried to change, but agent REFUSED to accommodate me with either aisle or window. Sat in middle with huge guy next to me. Very uncomfortable. Food was mediocre on this leg. Oh, and late departing AGAIN. Will seriously look for other options on next trip."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful. Qatar Airways is great about providing pillows, blankets, ear plugs and eye masks. Really good food as well."

Here is the email Dear Mr Muvunyi Good morning This is to inform you that your flight from Kigali QR1378 is delayed due to operational reasons, please be at Kigali Airport for check in at 4PM and check-in will close at07PM. Best regards Jeanne D’arc Uwitije Reservations & Ticketing Supervisor Tel: (+250) 252553500"
Cons: "light breakfast and light snacks for an 8-hour flight? come on!"
Pros: "The airline stewardesses were Fabulous! Especially one from Doha to Cape Town. Food was good and more than enough to eat. I was impressed by the scheduled meals and drink offers , very important for a dietetic"
Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."
Pros: "Let's just say there was nothing I didn't like"

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Comfort and service"
Cons: "Food breaks should be more"
Pros: "Always exciting heading into Hamad intl Apt."
Cons: "Small plane heading back into Doha from Dubai. Please change to dreamlimer for the roundtrip. Also, yes we get it, its a short flight. But not all of us are good at making conversation with strangers. You have a quality name, keep with the program" give out headsets, they cost nothing to make in China!"
Pros: "The food and entertainment systems were good. The staff on the plane were pleasant."
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: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."
Pros: "Staff courtesy"
Pros: "Once I made it to my seat, easily slipped back into a meditative trance."
Cons: "Unannounced delays. Waited in a line, then another one. Probably just different security protocol than I'm used to."
Pros: "No problems at all!"

San Francisco worst airport I've ever been in to navigate. Almost missed my connection trying to figure out which gate I needed and how to get to it.

Well I just slept when I got on board and woke up when they said we’ll get down in 20-25 mins! That was my best sleep on a flight 😅

Beware of Delta staff at Mexico City International Airport, actually be cautious with most of the staff OF THE AIRPORT, NOT THE VENDORS. Delta staff check-in particularly are not only rude, but also despicable. Because technically the law is on their side and it is, as in America, federal Mexican property, well, turns out that at the first hesitation from the customer Delta (or any airline at this airport, from my experience) staff actually will call federal and National Army (you know that they don't have anymore civil police at the Federal level in MX) on you. Almost a year ago, one of Delta staff physically attacked my brother after AEROMEXICO, Delta Skypartner, did something wrong with their reservation. Anyway, watch out.

God bless America 🇺🇸 🙏 ❤

All 8f rhe main dishes in business class had cumin or other sharp spices which I can not tolerate

Airport need better directions and delta needs to be contacts if gate changes

Flight took off arrive Frankfurt fine ... and then the Pilot parked the plane for 20 minutes while waiting for a steps vehicle to arrive so we all could deplane. This caused us to miss our Naples flight by 6 minutes while running to the next gate.. We are aware of 3 others who also miss their flight. Lufthansa Support said "why miss your flight, your flight arrived on time?" We explained, they provided another flight many hrs later, no meal voucher because our "flight was ontime".

Pros: "Flight delayed- missed my connection"
Cons: "5 hour delay"
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "Super flight and service"
Pros: "Crew and flight were fine"
Cons: "Cramped in economy"
Pros: "Same as above."

Cons: "The airline agent offered me a 10€ voucher to any where in the airport. While I was greatful, my time is worth more than 0.6€ an hour. An upgrade to Economy plus would have been better. There were 2 seats available."
Pros: "Service. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Flight was good. Boarding was delayed, but the time was made up during flight. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "It is always about baggage. Bags with priority tags should atleast be sent on a "priority". With LH this never is the case. Priority tagged bags are sometimes the last ones to come on the belt."
Pros: "Everything was great. The crew couldn’t have been more friendly or accommodating. It was a very enjoyable experience."
Pros: "Ease of boarding, flight arrived ontime"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "Excellent service from staff on the flight"
Cons: "Long line-up in Frankfurt at Lufthansa Passport control . Could probably open up the third counter and not just one Business and one Economy? First meal ( Turkey) had something in it that blowded me up all the way to Vancouver! Not sure if it was the vegetables or?? Not nice if you can't walk around and also not great for your neighbor to the right and left. I usually don't experience this with my food that I cook or choose."
Cons: "Ease and concenience"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Cons: "The vegetarian option was not as up to the standard of the meal travelling from Los Angeles to Frankfurt. It could be much improved in Business Class."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "Prem Econ was good. Space, crew, etc."
Cons: "Could have had additional snacks or drinks during the flight."
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "the crew was kind and helpful"
Cons: "the head of the crew( the purser) was extremely rude, inppropriate and unprofessional. I had an upgrade to economy premium because of the disaster with the DC to Franlfurt flight but I still experienced pain because I could not lay flat. I feel that Lufthana should give me a free upgrade to business on my flight back to Miami in October. it's the only way they can repair the stress, and emotional and physical torture they put me through in DC"
Pros: "Convenient schedule, excellent service, good food, all-around positive experience."
Pros: "Timing was on schedule"
Cons: "I had to pay 142 euros for my bags. I'm united Global and never have to pay for my bags. I don't mind a fee, but that was ridiculous!"
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "Great"
Pros: "on time, many toilet rooms available. not too much noises from other passengers."
Cons: "Boarding system was quite chaotic and unclear. Food was horrible. Premium Economy Class seat was just similar to economy class. Sound system with provided earphones don't work well."
Pros: "Despite not being able to recline my seat, I at least had room for my legs, unlike the last flight."
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. Boarding was a bit chaotic, and the constant shuttling around Frankfurt airport is just ridiculous. (Not that the airline can do anything about it)."
Pros: "Flight attendants pretty good. Got lucky with one of the only 2-seater rows in the back of the plane. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "I'm only 5'2" (157cm) and slim but could barely move in my seat, and if the person in front leaned seat back, it was terrible. Food was lame, really salty and they did not come around with water enough."
Pros: "It was a relatively short flight. Boarding went well and efficiently. Flight crew was attentive."
Pros: "LH is a good airline to fly. The 747-8 is very cramped in economy but an Airbus gave a bit more room on the return."
Cons: "Couldn't sleep because of seating."
Pros: "Staff , food , wine"
Cons: "Sat too close to the toilets , bad wafting smells. Only 1 earphone on my head set worked, unless I jiggled the plug. The plug did not fit neatly into the jack ."
Pros: "the crew was good"
Cons: "the seating was cramped. could use more leg room. The food was average."
Pros: "Friendly, professional staff"
Cons: "Personal space too small"
Pros: "The flight itself was great... A bit of turbulence, but otherwise quite comfortable. Crew and captain were excellent."
Cons: "The plane arrived 2 hours late, causing me to miss a train from Marseille to Nîmes, and costing me money for an extra night's hotel that I hadn't planned (Marseille), plus wasting money for the night at the hotel that I HAD planned (Nîmes), plus the cost of having to purchase an additional train ticket for the following morning. The $7 voucher at the airport was nice, but honestly doesn't come close to making up for the cost and inconvenience."
Pros: "Great crew and planes"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked and we were not sure to the last minute whether all our party members would be on the flight. Our seat arrangements were also cancelled."
Pros: "I was comfortable, not affraid."
Pros: "Plane, amenities, crew, flight...all 5 *s"
Cons: "Travelers should be aware getting around that terminal is counterintuitive and not efficient at all....Gate was crowded and confused....I don't understand the point if it's design....also not the place to exchange money...use ATM's"
Pros: "Lots os space, food was delicious, the movie selection was superb, and I enjoyed every second of my international flight."
Cons: "The gate printed on my ticket was not the gate the plane departed from. Not only was it not, but there was no announcement or warning this would happen. I only realized because 15 mins after the scheduled boarding time I went to find out what was going on. There should have been an announcement."

Very poor snack and drink option

Last minute change of aircraft from Amsterdam to Mexico City made our seats different and not as comfy as on the 787-900 planned. Crew was a little bit snippy and not as friendly as I expected on Aeromexico. KLM crews are fantastic! KLM food is not so much for their short-haul flights serving these salad vegan boxes.

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Cons: "Free wifi"
Pros: "This Transavia Airlines is not good at all."
Cons: "Many things cheaper does mean better."
Cons: "Allow business passenger to use front bathroom."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the crew were nice."
Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."
Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"
Pros: "Everything perfect and arrive to destination on perfect time."
Cons: "All positive."
Pros: "A flight was delayed due to weather conditions and we had to sit in the plane for almost an hour, BUT information sharing from the Capitan was sufficient and on-time. Very good job from pilots. Leg room in economy - I was positively surprised, very decent leg room! Thank you for providing it."
Cons: "I flew economy and all was good and appropriate to the level."
Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Cons: "Travelled business class and was ace experience"
Pros: "Slow service."
Cons: "Better communication!"
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time flight."
Pros: "Just the cabin crew being nice"
Cons: "Punctuality KLM is always late"
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "very attentive crew"
Cons: "Only ham sandwiches on offer! I'm not demanding and would have been happy with cheese."
Cons: "Flight canceled, poor communication from the airline to the passengers. Møre than 5 hrs delay"
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Cons: "The flight advertised meals..a small pastry was served an hour into the flight. I asked when the meal would be and was told a few hours...which turned out to be breakfast..i wated all night for food that only came an hour before landing. Now hungrey and tierd.I.will not be flying klm ever again !!"
Pros: "Face recognition was amazing"
Cons: "Too hot on plane"
Pros: "Shirt flight but well catered, boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "Not lots of legroom but adequate for an hour long hop. It was cold on board and also had to board via steps from outside"
Pros: "Good flight, very attentive crew."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "Able to fly direct to ansterdam"
Cons: "Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines."
Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Pros: "Cabin crew were very professional."
Cons: "Aircraft returned to gate due to fault and was delayed for 45 min."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
