Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Pros: "La tripulación excelente y nos dieron un obsequio"

Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."

Pros: "Excellent service provided by crew"
Cons: "Food needs improvement"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."

Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"

Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."

Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"

Cons: "I was not able to fly"

Pros: "Everything was GREAT!"

Pros: "Amazing experience. Pinnacle of customer service"

Pros: "Very nice aircraft , crew, and supplies"
Cons: "Flight delayed, so missed connecting flight and stuck in Qatar for 13 hours on top of a 22 hour regular flight schedule"

Pros: "The crews are very friendly and seats are very comfortable"
Cons: "There nothing could have been better cause everything is perfect"

Pros: "My comments are as above . On the Auckland to Quatar leg of my journey Excellent airline and crew."

Pros: "The crew were fab"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."

Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."

Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Pros: "Staff was great"

Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Too crowded in in flight"

Pros: "Staff was courteous. Food wasn't too bad. Plane was clean and modern. Ambiance was relaxing. This was a very pleasant flight compared to other airlines."

Pros: "Great Staff"
Cons: "Asian Vegetarian meals needs some improvement. Lack of Africans as part of the crew."

Pros: "Good movies, comfortable seats"
Cons: "Staff was not attentive. When requested for a drink with meal, the hostess promised to bring it later but never did."

Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"

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: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Preboarding area had no bathrooms. Boarding process was erratic with conflicting calls for zones. Discomfort with people bumping you as they walked down the aisle..toilets unkempt. Exit row USB port misaligned with seating area, so my USB cable bent and broke."

Pros: "All around a great experience."
Cons: "The internet worked for like 2 minutes and then said my time was up, even though I was supposed to get 15 minutes for free or something."

Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."

Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"

Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."

Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"

Pros: "My trip from Beijing to Doha was fine."
Cons: "I didn't like my trip from Dar to Doha nor from Doha to Dar. The plane is too small. The food wasn't good and they ran out of Mango juice both ways. I sat next to someone who had the smelliest feet on earth. Just wasn't pleasant."

Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."

Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."

Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."

Pros: "Intertainment was very good"
Cons: "The hostess were not in profisional, they were very rush while giving the food the toilet was not clean"

Cons: "Maybe the food"

Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"

Pros: "Everything from the crew being super accomodating and friendly to the comfort and taste of the food was delicious."

Pros: "On time. Check in was very easy."

Cons: "They asked me to pay for my luggages. It is strange"

Pros: "It was fine - overall pleasant/nothing."
Cons: "It was fine - overall pleasant/nothing wrong, but not outstanding, either. It helps to have no one in the middle seat, but it would have been nicer to have slightly more comfortable seating, and a bit more privacy."

Pros: "Crew was very attentive, information from the cockpit was enough to let us know but not disruptive"
Cons: "Boarding was one long line that other passengers in the airport had to walk through. This was difficult for passengers with kids and those with needed special accommodations Ike wheelchairs, canes etc"

Pros: "Food / movies"
Cons: "Comfort/ staff"

Pros: "Unexpected food/snacks that were provided.Good crew and the plane was on time."

Cons: "Older plane with no entertainment"

Pros: "Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and the cabin was clean and comfortable. My flight from jfk to Geneva (then Zurich) was cancelled due to weather in Geneva (Swiss 23) so I got upgraded to a delta flight to Brussels then to Zurich Comfort+ !!! Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight from Zurich to Johannesburg: Swiss 288 (airbus a340-300) Sat in the last row of the Swiss air flight, economy, which was okay but our whole row video enternatinment system didn’t work. You’d pick a movie and it wouldn’t play. The games, camera and flight status animation all worked but not the movies. Air hostess tried resetting , still nothing. But it was a great opportunity to have a lovely conversation with my new German Friend Barbara and read my book! More lactose intolerant alternatives for breakfast which had much (cheese, yogurt, croissant) Other than those two , excellent flight. Thank you Swiss!"

Pros: "Quick and easy- no problems. We had drink service and a yummy croissant. Flights attendants were really nice and spoke great English."

Pros: "Good service - including snacks and drinks. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Upon boarding, the agents in the airport gave us a hard time over a bag that definitely met carry-on requirements. Almost made us check it, and then changed their mind last minute. Very unnecessary/dramatic situation, especially since we flew with that bag via carry-on multiple times (and on even smaller planes)."

Pros: "Very friendly crew, good legroom in economy, excellent meals."
Cons: "None"

Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "On ticket it said time between flights was 1hr 25min, but as soon as we got off the plane we had to RUN through Zurich airport, where 1000 other people were all trying to funnel down the single escalator to Passport Control, to get to our gate. Then we had to wait in another Passport Control. TERRIBLE and stressful. The actual flight was fine."

Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "Our luggage was left behind in Zurich after an unnecessary gate check. There were plenty of room in the overhead bins, and we purposefully bought the luggage because they were sized for bin storage."

Pros: "Snack offered was tasty"

Cons: "The wifi on the plane was horrible."

Pros: "The food was great, the seats were thin and we had a lot of room and the staff was super!"
Cons: "Nothing, we would have stayed in this airplane longer...."

Cons: "priority luggage arrived in SFO about 30 mins after regular luggage"

Pros: "Comfy, loved the individual Tvs and food was great!"

Cons: "No inflight entertainment."

Cons: "There is no question about check-in?? My ticket, booked through Kayak, did not state that no baggage is included. The Swiss air just said I should have picked it up from the booking and forced me to pay Euro 30, which I will claim back from Kayak. This is gross misrepresentation and on the same ticket flying a luggage was included."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and accommodating."

Pros: "Amazing crew. Great food"

Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."

Cons: "Boarding was crowded, hot, and disorganized in IST."

Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."

Pros: "Comfortable seating"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Everything was great but I particularly liked the meals."
Cons: "Our trip to Europe required three legs: Boston to Ljubljana, Slovenia; Slovenia to Barcelona; and Barcelona to Boston. Each leg required a plane change in Istanbul which added a lot of time to the trip and resulting jet lag. We knew this going in but were motivated by the very low fare. I don't think I'd do it again."

Pros: "The cabin crew was very courteous. Aircraft was clean, nice and spacious. In flight entertainment was very good"

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I waited on line for over an hour until we found out our flight was cancelled indefinitely. There was no communication and no way to rebook. I had to book a different flight on my own through a separate airline to get back home in less than 3 days."

Pros: "The staff and crew were very helpful and provided excellent service throughout the experience. The food makes one rethink all the bad stereotypes of airlines food and one does. It go hungry."

Pros: "Overall it was a smooth flight except for few minor issues."
Cons: "It seems as thought several of the hostesses may have been trainees so the food service was slow and, they ran out of food on some trolleys and sometimes forgot orders for passengers."

Cons: "It was not comfortable at all No space the cherries no nice"

Pros: "There was a snowstorm in Istanbul so we got diverted to Antalya. I am sitting in a hotel room. If someone from kayak could let me know when my flight to Dhaka will happen it would be greatly appreciated. My email is kma815@gmail.com. Thanks"

Pros: "The crew was nice They handled the delay well so we didn't missed our connection afterall"
Cons: "1. We had to wait 2 hours in the plane 2. there is no way to use the monitors (not a personal monitor)."

Cons: "There was no option to choose kosher food in the order."

Pros: "the plain is good and there is a big space for the legs. the crew is helpfull"
Cons: "1. There was a delay on the flight from Barcelona to SAW (Turkey) of 2.5 hours. Turkish Airline didn't update us at any time what and why is the delay problem . Due to this, we missed the connetcion flight to Tel Aviv.They took us to another air port(Attaturk) in Istanbul (1.5 hour driving) . They gave us only food vaucher and no compensation for the overall delay(7 hours!!!) 2.Icoud not order a Cosher foo at all TK flights web sitr. WHY ??? 3.the Entertainment is very poor. only one movie and no subtitlse .Music is wired."

Cons: "It was impossible to watch the films, the system was inaccessible"

Pros: "The Price!"
Cons: "Would have appreciated different breakfast choices."

Pros: "The entertainment options, food, toiletry bag"
Cons: "Stuardess service is very poor. For a 13 hour flight I would expect to have more than 2 beverage visits. Also, I ended up taking my requests to a first class stuardress since the ladies in coach didn't respond to me. I was also appalled to have my connecting flight delayed for over 24 hours without proper notification."

Pros: "Service was prompt but short. Stewards seemed stressed out."
Cons: "Ran out of chicken option. Friend does not eat eggplant (option #2)"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "x"
Cons: "x"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Most seats were broke, staff seemed grumpy, 3 out of 4 flights didn't have individual TVs, staff couldn't handle unruly passengers, etc. Won't be using Turkish Air anymore."

Pros: "The food was very good. The movie selection was outstanding"

Cons: "I showed up roughly an hour before the flight, as I had no bags to check in. The employees at the check in counter had already cleared out, so I was unable to get my boarding pass. Then when I called in, they were extremely unhelpful. They gave me no alternative options, and instead only listed out a ridiculous list of fees and said I they could get me on a flight a different day for a total cost that was greater than what I had paid for the entire round trip ticket. I asked to speak to a manager and they refused to connect me. I ended up buying a one way ticket home with another airline. I will not fly with Turkish Airlines again in the future, and I would definitely not recommend them to anyone. Just beware of this service if you see them listed as the cheapest option."

Cons: "Terrible Airline- cancelled flight and rescheduled long flight leg for another day without notice"

Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"

Cons: "The flight was delayed for over an hour"

Pros: "Service was awesome top to bottom"
Cons: "The business class cabin was hot on both flights. That seemed to be a common complaint among the passengers we talked to. The Economy cabin seemed to be set quite a bit cooler."

Pros: "I really like the fact that they still prepare food for their passengers, however, the quality of the food was less than average They prepare you with the eye mask and the slippers, and a thin sheet of blankets for longer flight, which was really nice. The seats are comfortable, and there are a larger selection of movies and songs to choose from which were also great. The flight was relatively stable. I didn't ever realize that we took off, maybe i was too tired to notice, i don't know."
Cons: "The boarding was really slow, it was not on time. The food was less than average, but better than not have any. It was hard to find assistance. The flight seemed a bit old, because we weren't able to turn off our light which caused some inconvenience."

Pros: "food and entertainment"
Cons: "Couldn't find the reclining in seats"

Pros: "Really amazing service."

Pros: "Fast, efficient, confortable, nice flight attendants, good food."

Pros: "Everything was good."

Cons: "Ran an hour late"

Pros: "Everything was good on this flight, crew, and food."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Better food than most airlines. Appreciated the kit."
Cons: "They ran out of non-beef options for dinner. Flight attendants weren't the friendliest. No usb charger. Seats weren't very comfortable."

Cons: "Flight from Berlin to Frankfurt was late, but I made my connecting flight to Amsterdam."

Pros: "Seats were good, flight attendants cordial."
Cons: "It took forever for the passengers to get on the plane and seated for us to take off so we left late. We arrived late in Munich so I had to practically run to my next flight. Thankfully was in the same terminal."

Pros: "Free wine!"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Problems when boarding. Some real upset customers at Valencia Airport who had too much baggage. Another proposal: Provide Fanta :-)"

Pros: "Friendly and cheerful crew. Very generous with the drinks."
Cons: "Very very long walk from aircraft to Schiphol exit. I must have walked for 20 minutes to get out. Not really Lufthansa's fault though."

Pros: "Super professional, comfortable and on-time service with both Swiss and Lufthansa."
Cons: "Clear up-front notification about extra charge for first checked bag on both ways of the trip ($60 each). I couldn't find that information at the time of the booking."

Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."

Pros: "Flight delayed- missed my connection"
Cons: "5 hour delay"

Pros: "Lots of legroom, friendly crew, and they serve sandwiches! Asked for water after takeoff and they gave it to me without hesitation! I would definitely recommend them!"
Cons: "I can’t find anything to complain about."

Cons: "The last rows are too near from the toilets or perhaps they weren’t clean when we left Washington"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("

Pros: "Gentle crew"
Cons: "1,5 hours delay again"

Pros: "The business cabin was excellent for a European airline."

Pros: "Randomly gave me better seats!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was never notified that there was no 1:45pm flight. Had I not gotten to the airport early I would not have made the flight to Chicago.at 12:25pm. I was originally scheduled to to to Munich but the flight was to Frankfurt. The plane arrived early so I had to make different plans for someone to pick me up Very disappointed in lack of communication"

Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Premium economy upgrade not worth the price! Wheelchair service ordered but NOT provided In Frankfort!"

Cons: "The flight got delayed and it was a nightmare for my handicap old mom."

Pros: "The crew did a great job. The flight turned out to be nearly 10 hours since we had 150 knot headwinds. The food and free wine made things much to tolerable. You can't go wrong with Lufthansa."

Pros: "departure & arrival on time"
Cons: "The seats are very very uncomfortable I cannot imagine flying more than 2 hours on that plane."

Pros: "We had more room with a 2-seat array in the middle of the plane. It was more comfortable than the 3 seat array."

Cons: "The food was not that great"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"

Pros: "Perfectly okay flight, slept through with no disturbances. Crew were friendly enough and landed fine. Airport took me a while to figure out though."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "It got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "The seats are way too close together for such a long flight. I fought off a panic attack for much of the trip. It was suffocating. I should not be able to give the person in front of me a head massage. The personal space humans should have was horribly invaded. I'm a 62 year old woman who's in good shape but even for me it was an act of gymnastics to get in and out of my seat. On my flight to Europe on the 13th with your airline our section of the plane did not have working monitors so it was like watching paint dry for 11 hours. So boring!"

Pros: "Great crew service, comfortable, modern, captain kept us up to date and actually made up for the lost time on the delays to take off and got us nearly back on schedule."
Cons: "Food wasn't the best tasting, and made me sick."

Cons: "Flight was late leaving Munich and it caused me to miss my connection. And just my luck my rebooking was 2.5 hours delayed."

Pros: "Once onboard the flight was excellent and trouble-free. The crew were efficient and pleasant to passengers. I must give a big credit to Lufthansa for its great on-board entertainment system and good quality screens."
Cons: "Boarding in San Jose: For the first time I saw a Lufthansa person physically checking the weight of cabin backage at the gate. This was was not very pleasant experience as he approached us asking questions why we had so much cabin baggage, when our children were in bathroom and assumed me and my wife had 4 pieces of baggage, when we had 1 each and then left without apologising."

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "I love that the connecting flight wasn't through Lufthansa. As the original flight was delayed so long, I had to fly home on another airline."
Cons: "That Lufthansa didn't actually get me on my connecting flight. That's what I didn't like about this flight: that it didn't happen."

Cons: "The legroom was awful, especially for a nine-hour flight. The video screen kept rebooting."

Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"

Pros: "Flight attendant was very helpful. She went out of her way to bring me a special tea. Large selection of entertainment."
Cons: "Food could've had more healthier choices. Also, kid-friendly food would've been a plus. Not enough leg room. Headphones were only working for one ear which is really bad for the ears. Air conditioning was really turned on really high and gave me a headache and the sniffles. I started throwing up during landing time. Horrible."

Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."

Pros: "Comfy seats for economy. Decent food. Hot towels for hands. Plenty of food and beverages. Very good entertainment screens, decent movie selects."
Cons: "That better seats are so much more expensive."

Pros: "Lufthansa over Thomas Cook any day"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"

Cons: "They change the gate for transfer last minute"

Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"

Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."

Pros: "Food was great!"
Cons: "Lackluster movie selection, internet was a rip off and barely worked."

Pros: "Organized loading. Flight attendants engaged, took great care of passengers. Did not act like we were a bother."
Cons: "Need more elbow room. Folks on either side of me took up the arm rests. Felt squished"

Pros: "The plan and crew were great"
Cons: "Our bags didnt even leave Detroit and the Spainish bag handling company was horrible. Didnt have luggage for 3 days in Spain. Our bags on the way back didnt make the connection. Whats the deal."

Cons: "Little more leg room would be nice"

Cons: "It's KLM. What else do you need to know."

Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."

Pros: "Loved the smooth ride."
Cons: "Bathroom was pretty nasty"

Pros: "Staff were professional and polite."
Cons: "Despite zone boarding, boarding and disembarkation were very slow. Passengers like me with flight connections were very anxious regarding missing these."

Pros: "Everything works and quick to get to destination."

Cons: "Fix the damn KIOSKS at Vienna!"

Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"

Cons: "Vegetarian meal was okay but could be more enjoyable if served with bread at start of meal."

Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."
Cons: "Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated"

Cons: "Over an hour delayj for departure."

Pros: "Nice attention and good food. Plane and seats are confortable"

Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."

Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."

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: "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: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."

Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."

Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."

Pros: "Face recognition was amazing"
Cons: "Too hot on plane"

Cons: "Very slow service at checkin, was not even available when I arrived at the airport"

Pros: "Travel on Crostian Airlines did not pappen. KLM flight to Munich was cancelled and I was rescheduled on Air Setbia to Belgrade, the Split."
Cons: "That it didn’t happen."

Pros: "Nice crew; clean plane; decent dinner"
Cons: "No entertainment system; insufficient knee space"

Pros: "Good Experience"

Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"

Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"

Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."

Pros: "quick and relaxed"

Pros: "The included snacks and the seats."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"

Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Service"

Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"

Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."

Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."

Pros: "Same as above"

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."

Pros: "delayed"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and accomodating, plane was clean and boarding amd disembarking was efficiently handled."
Cons: "55 minute delay was not welcome."

Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Economy was very tight! Seats were uncomfortable"

Pros: "Overall very nice flight, even comes with free drink and snack"

Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."

Pros: "They flew full speed to catch up with the delays."
Cons: "Departure was scheduled with one hour delay. When everyone was boarded they mentioned a leaking toilet. It took them 1,5 hours to disable the toilet. In the mean time, no drinks, no snacks, nothing. So we should depart at 18:00 but it became 19:30. Our first drinks and meal was no earlier then 21:00. The crew should have anticipated better that the technical problem would at least take one hour and give everyone a drink at least."

Cons: "Our flight from Nairobi to Lusaka was cancelled for some reason and we did not find out until we happened to log into the website to double check our itinerary. They automatically rescheduled the flight only giving us 25 minutes to reach our next flight...impossible. so, after calling, we were re-booked again and forced into a 13 hour layover in Amsterdam. Our original flight plan had 4 hours. so, because we are a family of 7 with a baby, we had to buy a hotel room to rest, costing us a lot of extra money we had not planned to spend. We contacted KLM for help with the cost but were rejected. We also lost 5 bags somewhere between Chicago and Lusaka, but after 2 days, we received them."

Cons: "Stranded for 48 hours in Africa. Missed 3 flights due to complete incompetence, truly a horrible experience."
