Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Good service by crew."
Cons: "Online check in was not working which meant long line to check in at airport."
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
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"
Pros: "Food choice was good & amazing crew ."
Cons: "Plug for charging phone was not there that cause problem for me as my battery of phone was dead. Shocked to know that."
Cons: "Crew needs more booster, perhaps? so they can share some smiles and warm gestures like what we experienced during flight from Singapore to Doha. Ability to choose kids' meal 24 hours before flight. we don't know the avail menu, hence we ordered on outbound only, unable to change afterwards."
Pros: "Good flights"
Cons: "Qatar Airways Maharjan lounge snack Restuarant service was not great. Boarding was very inconvenient in Doha using the bus. All the rest at Zurich and in flights was good."
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."

Cons: "We requested the wheelchair but it wasn’t provided"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."

Pros: "The plane was Dreamliner. It was huge and nice. Great staff on board , very friendly ."
Pros: "Nothing much."
Cons: "I think airplane was small in Doha to Amritsar sector . There are not too many 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: "CRYING BABY BUT I UNDERSTAND THOUGH"
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Cons: "Entertainment and food timings are odd."
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 and food"
Cons: "It was a pretty old flight and had no tv in front! Huge disappointment. Probably they thought ppl flying from Doha to Colombo were ok with a low quality flight with no entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was good n easy"
Pros: "Airplane crew was nice when they saw I was very upset over that my luggage was refused."
Cons: "My luggage was refused at the check-in due to several mistakes from the check-in and Customer service personbil from Qatar. It is now one week after my flight and my luggage is still not with me. I have spend lots of money and written 3 LONG mails to Qatar Customer Service - some have been teplied with a ”we will get back to You” note - but nobody has gotten back to me so far. Not 5 Stars. Actually One star is too good a Grade for this complete service failure from A-Z."
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: "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: "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: "The entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn't have any complaints. I thought everything went very well."

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: "The crew, Sami and Juliana in particular, were absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "Qatar Airways needs to abandon its draconian policies and disconnected, overy segregated procedures. Also, an allegedly five-star airline needs to upgrade aircraft which would make FlyDubai blush."
Cons: "Ran out of meal options in both flights"
Pros: "Not much really"
Cons: "Boarding, food, seat comfort. Essentially everything"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The sandwich"
Cons: "Baggage payments n information"

She has orthrytis and was not be able to walk long distance, but no body provide her wheelchair and did not help her to find a gate for her next flight. It was really disappoin"
Pros: "Food is not bad"
Cons: "The staff told us our carry-ons are over weighted and forced us to check in 2 carry-ons and charged us 250USD! Our carry-ons are totally standard-sized but just weighted more than 8 kg.

Pros: "appetizers excellent"

Cons: "I was bumped from my flight. Suspect it was because flight was booked thru kayak instead of directly with airline. Will not do that again"
Cons: "The plane was too hot"
Cons: "Turkish Airlines apparently cancelled the trip for us. They blamed Justfly and Justfly blamed Turkish airlines. Problem is still unresolved. I am stranded in a foreign country with my family including 2 small kids. Vacation is ruined. I booked this flight on Kayak with Just stfly. Awful, awful experience and no one seems to care. And problem is still unresolved. So thanks for asked for asking but better to fix the problem!"

Cons: "They canceled our first flight ( not knowing the reason)from then our trip been ruined, going and coming. We had to buy a return tickets ourselves to get back to Portland. Not happy with them at all. Never were able to go with our original flights."
Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"
Pros: "The food"

Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."
Pros: "They try to impress, quite attentive and nice. Plane is clean an new B777."
Cons: "Flight was too exhausting, but Turkish Airlines have nothing to do with this. Ataturk Airport in Istanbul is ... mediocre at the best."
Pros: "This was my firsth fly with this company and I was sorprice. This was wonderfull.Very good food, exelent. On line news."
Pros: "food is always good..crew too"
Cons: "why more spece in short hail flights then long haul??"

Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Pros: "new aircrafts, easy boarding ontime departure and arrival"
Cons: "Staff needs to be more friendly, food needs to be better in quality (ie.Etihad food is amazing). knowing that the flights are going to INDIA & PAKISTAN they should add some indian Pakistani channels"
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "The service, the wine, the staff."
Cons: "The food tasted bland. Wasn't bad, but bland."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight. The meals were relatively tasty, and the in-flight entertainment was fun."
Cons: "Having been impressed on recent overseas flight using Turkish Airlines, I thought the standards they had previously practiced would have been implemented. Unfortunately, there were several customer service disappointments, from forgetting to include dessert with my and my daughter's meals to being made to wait nearly an hour for the interactive screen to be reset. And not a sincere apology or effort to resolve the problem."
Pros: "The food was delicious. I have never had better airplane food. The movies were super new and interesting. I did not have time in the 11 hours of flying to watch all the movies I wanted to. The flight was also incredibly smooth."
Cons: "There were a few small things that could have been better (Which I'll mention), but the worst thing about the flight was the airport. Ataturk Airport is a mess. After the attempted coup, they really upped security, forcing all international flights to go through a second security screening after transferring from another airport. It's understandable but the line moved at a molasses-like speed when I had only 25 minutes to make my connecting flight. The security personnel were rude, as well. Also, when I went to make my connecting gate in Cairo, there was no one at the gate after the required boarding time (Because security had held us up), forcing some of us to board the plane without having anyone to show us onto the plane (Very scary). The flight boarding was chaotic, and no announcements were made about what we were supposed to do. Besides the lack of boarding gates, the only other serious complaint I had against Turkish Airlines (Because it really was great overall) was that the pilots and flight attendants were very hard to understand. I have taught ESL for the past 5 years, and I still had a hard time as an American understanding their English. Also, they frequently didn't understand or misunderstood questions that I would ask them. I've never had a hard time understanding flight attendants on an international flight, but I only understood about 20% of what anyone said over the loud speaker in the plane. And it's nice to be able to understand when the pilot says, "We are experiencing some turbulence and would like everyone to buckle their seatbelts until it passes." Two small things remain: 1. The bathroom trash cans were full on every flight (A small thing but makes everything feel "trashy"). 2. The flight attendants seemed unhappy, and they definitely seemed unhappy to be serving us. I can only assume they are that way because they aren't treated particularly well by their bosses."
Pros: "*Lots of legroom *They still serve food! *Luggage fee extortion not as egregious as other airlines. *Nice entertainment system. Put simply: Turkish airlines is what most airlines USED TO be like about 25 years ago."
Cons: "*Boarding is usually a bit disorganized with people always trying to switch seats. *If you are flying from Germany to Turkey, get on early. The overhead luggage compartments fill up fast. *This is more of a cultural thing: but it is annoying that passengers routinely get up and start grabbing their bags before the aircraft has even retracted the speed brakes upon landing..."
Cons: "They lost one of my bags but I got it in the afternoon the next day."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "Food was not very good."
Cons: "Possible food poisoning from the beef that was served on the plane."
Cons: "YOU destroy the traveler Luggage at this trip and there is some items missing . Thank you"
Pros: "Contrary to many mainstream airlines which try to cut costs everwhere to the detriment of economy class passengers, Turkish airlines provides excellent service in economy, and I could get a super cheap fare for my whole family."
Pros: "First of all, the food is fantastic is you are not a meat and potatos (or big mac) kind of person. My original flight left late due to a hold up in security in Chicago. Turkish Air was very responsive and easy to work with when I missed my connector in Istanbul. Friendly crew. Clean jet. Will definitely use them agian."
Pros: "Direct flight is good. Dinner was good."
Cons: "Food for dinner was good but lunch was not not great. Crew was very unfriendly to especially Turkish passengers. Short answer for questions and no smile at all especially the ones on our side."
Cons: "The lack of leg room in the huge plane"
Pros: "Liked most of the part."
Cons: "Requested a wheel chair for elderly person with difficulty of walking. The flight from ODS through Istambul to MIA. Did it get the wheel chair in Istambul. For such a great airline big disappointment in this matter."
Cons: "The fees for the sporting bag was out of control expensive"
Pros: "Boarding a smooth flight"
Cons: "Food absolutely"
Pros: "They vere OK!"
Cons: "Food and drinks!"
Pros: "Amazing flight , crew excellent , good food. Definitely I will travel again with Austrian Airlines"
Pros: "Staff and the service"
Cons: "Dinner was so bad"
Pros: "I had to pay 75 USD for 3.6 KG extra. Very annal"
Cons: "The flight had delay more than 45 minutes I lost my bus connection"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Red uniforms are ok but red tights awful"
Pros: "Crew were amazing"
Cons: "Delayed at boarding Delayed inside plane No entertainment No room for my long legs - no option"
Pros: "Highly efficient transfer (45 minutes between flights)"
Cons: "too short a time to transfer between flights as a very long distance between gates,"
Cons: "May bags didn't make the transfer and were sent on to me the following day."
Pros: "Efficient boarding from bus. Friendly crew. Offered soft drink and coffee as well as choice of 2 snacks. No entertainment as such a short flight. Clean, modern plane."
Cons: "muffin for breakfast ?"
Cons: "There was plenty of space, and so I rven had a chance to catch some sleep on the transatlantic flight. But Uktimately, unless you are travelling in luxury, transatlantic flights are awful."
Pros: "That is was on time!"
Cons: "That they charge you for luggage when international flight accepts one bag per person!!! this is Nickle and diming people."
Pros: "After flight to Vienna was cancelled, we were put on a flight to Frankfurt instead."
Cons: "Kayak sent me an email at 5:16am for an 8:15 am flight titled, "Austrian Airlines flight #704 from PRG on time". It was in fact cancelled. Unfortunately we missed the connection for the flight to Newark, which we were expressly told would be held for us... they shut the door 30 seconds before we arrived, with the plane still at the gate. Had to then go to the only counter in the terminal to see if we could get on standby. Finally got on a flight to JFK instead at 5:15pm."
Pros: "The flight was nowhere near full, which was terrific. The crew were excellent, polite and attentive. Everything was on time."
Cons: "I don't remember anything about the food."
Pros: "Make sure your carry on luggage is less then 8 kg. Or you would have to check it at your own cost. The food is OK but the portion is very small. If you want a window or isle seat, it would’ve cost you 30 euro to reserve it. The crew is very nice. I guess because the air fare is very cheap, they need to do everything to make the extra cash."
Pros: "The crew were so kind!"
Pros: "Great experience, friendly crew!"
Pros: "Helpful service, decent food."
Pros: "I will never travel with Austrian airlines again"
Cons: "My flight was cancel,then they transfer me to swees airlines they checked me in they took my luggage and then they told me I can't travel coz I can't make 2 stops inside the Europe. I have to wait 1 hour and 30 minutes to fine my bags . I went back and forth from terminal 1 and 4 many times.The changed my flight to turkey airlines and I wait 9 more hours at airport to check in again. Terrible experience ☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️"
Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "No pillows,only carb food"
Pros: "In general, I like the on board food of Austrian and especially in regard of Do&Co catering from Vienna Airport. Staff was not to trying this time but service was still okay."
Cons: "The Senator Lounge at Vienna Airport is very poor, food selection is very limited and it is obvious that the focus is on cost saving. Another disadvantage is that the lounge only opens at 5.30am in the morning but first flight already leave Vienna around 6am. Mine was at 7.05am which meant that I just arrived when the lounge opened and I had to wait in a long cue. Boarding was due to the limited space in front of the gate a mess, priority boarding was announced but I was not made sure that priority passengers board first. The seats on board are for business to small and there is not even space to hag up the coat."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Our seats 35 A & C were comfortable as they were to the back of the plane where it narrows to two seats per side row. Seemed like extra leg room. Crew was very friendly and helpful. Flight was smooth and uneventful. Good movie choices. Bathroom was clean and nearby. Plane seemed newer Boeing model. The City Airport Transport (CAT) train from the Vienna airport to city center was fantastic. We were able to check our luggage and get boarding passes where we boarded the CAT at the metro station and did not have to wait in line at the airport...wonderful system!"
Cons: "At the gate there was a line formed for a second passport check but it was not clear to passengers that they needed to go through this line. A significant number of us had SSSS on our boarding passes which required us to go through a second, more thorough, TSA security procedure. We had to remove shoes, take electronics including phones from cases, have purse contents gone through by personnel, be screened for residue, etc. Due to this process and the fact that we were not advised to stand in the line, a number of passengers went through the second security check at the last minute which caused our takeoff to be delayed. The pilot made up the time during the flight. I ordered low sodium meal which ended up to be the same food at both meals which was a disappointment - pasta with tomato, eggplant sauce."
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "the stewardess gave me coffee even if she already passed by me (because I was sleeping) I appreciated that :)"
Cons: "Flight cancelled, after delays... Then almost four more hours to get rescheduled in a different flight the next day and taken to a local hotel!"
Pros: "Crew friendliness."
Pros: "The staff should speak english and albanian from pristina to austria or from pristina to turkey its abvious they are albanians %95 of them and elderly who dont speek any other language but albanian"
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze, although the flight was not full. Food was good, but as I dozed off during courses, they decided I was finished and took all my food and didn't offer anything when I awoke shortly after. (this will go in the 'didn't like' section as well. Bed was comfortable and comfy blanket and pillow"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly at all. Amenities kit was burlap sac with nothing worth keeping or using -- even the eye covers. Business class bathrooms had nothing to offer in the areas of hand/face creams. All there was were hand wipes and air freshener. (OMG! SERIOUSLY!?); a big difference from their partners (i.e. Swiss and Lufthansa). Crew was not present -- not only were they very unfriendly they were no where to be found. TV/video didn't work properly -- kept fast forwarding or changing channels on its own. The crew of course, was not concerned."
Pros: "This time it seems I had a little bit more leg room. Which makes a big difference!"
Pros: "Right on schedule!!"

Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like"
Pros: "I like the personalized service and the understanding crew."
Cons: "For the amount of people flying into and out of Thera, the check-in system could be improved."
Pros: "the flight seat was comfortable. It was the most comfortable economy class seat."
Cons: "Flight to Vienna cancelled. Driven to Munich instead. 6 hour wait until flight to Nice. Arrived 8 hours later than scheduled."
Pros: "Flight crew was very nice. Service of drinks was very good. Snack and main meal served too close together."
Cons: "Flight was crowded. Boarding was mediocre & disorganized. I really dislike passengers being allowed to bring suitcases as carry-on luggage. Carry-on means carry on. If you cannot carry your bag by hand for extended time or has rollers, it's not a carry-on. Carry-on is a backpack or small valise not a suitcase with rollers. Boarding of aircraft needs to improve and be expedited."
Pros: "Well worth the upgrade!"
Cons: "Very unprofessional handling of mechanical failure by United. Gave us a lowsy $10 coupon and not even Club access."

Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."

Cons: "My check in luggage was in very bad condition when I receive it. My clothes were all wet and they got bab by each other’s colour. Many clothes are not in a condition to wear now. Those were expensive and I had a big loss because of that."
Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."

Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."
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: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
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: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"
Cons: "I slept didn't have snack offered and no entertainment"
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: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Good food. Decent leg room at my seat. Good crew. Flight was on time. Good magazine on the flight for entertainment."
Cons: "They didn't give any napkins out with the food which was weird."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. was not able to make connecting flight in Amsterdam. No flights from Amsterdam to final destination in the US. Lost one full day. Had to stay overnight. What a cluster mess. Will never fly with KLM airlines and would not recommend. Will spend a little extra money and fly on other airlines......very poor, disorganized, and horrendous flight experience. Buyer beware."
Pros: "Food was relatively good"
Cons: "We had ourtrip from San Francisco to Amsterdam which is one of the longest flights ever, andthe entertainment system wasnt working, we kept on telling them several times but nothing happened and at the end they wereeven avoiding us. By the end of the trip when we were approaching Ams, a hostess came and she gave us a $25 dollar discountvoucher to be used in our next trip, this is totally not acceptable!"
Pros: "Flight was overbooked. After paying 1.7k, they put me to another flight which took me 7 hours more to arrive SFO."
Pros: "Seats ok. Crew is super. Drinks offered"
Cons: "Nothing, AF rocks"
Pros: "How great everyone was and smooth sailing."
Cons: "Made sure the flight was not over booked."
Cons: "The conditions were very cramped. The entertainment system was quite old and had very little selection. My entertainment system actually stopped working all together. I called for assistance from my seat a couple of times, but nobody came."
Pros: "Great crew and entertainment. Terrible experience at CDG airport but that’s the airports fault."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and surprisingly the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I think more attention should be paid to cleaning the plane and eeek, there was no liqueur in economy class. Music selection in entertainment should be wider too"
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Cons: "No leg room at all, cant believe those seats met legal standard. The plane smelled, boarding was a nightmare because too many people had big bags. An announcement had been madd that vags would be collected, but obviously were not."
Cons: "Both flights through Detroit were re-routed, our luggage was lost for 4 days."
Pros: "Amazing crew and on time flight"
Cons: "Departure time was almost 2 hours late and the communication of the cabin crew regarding this issue was poor. Almost an hour went by without an update."
Pros: "Flight attendant was rude to my non French speaking 12 year old. He ripped his charger out of the USB port and threw it at him."
Cons: "TSA was sketchy and gave a FULL search, part down, etc. I kept asking and the excuse kept changing. Final excuse ridiculous! Flight attendant could have not treated my son as he way he did. I was unaware that the usb cord being inputted during taxiing As was my son. He was horrible to him!!"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful in all respects."
Cons: "Not getting everyone standing in line to board one hour and 10 minutes before scheduled departure."
Pros: "crew was great, seats were comfortable"
Cons: "departure board listed flight as being boarded and gate closed hour before flight leading to confusion and standing in queue for over an hour, part of food was frozen and inedible, paid for upgraded seat which turned out to be by bathroom smells were as bad as you can imagine"

Pros: "Amazing crews!"

Cons: "Le capitain et l’aterrisage"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "The usual Air France flights to Rome, that I have been flying for years, are now operated by Joon. For a couple months nothing changed, except the way the crew dressed. But now Joon is showing its true nature as a LOW COST airline.Seats cramped. Snacks and apple juice are now available for purchase only."
Cons: "Told us to get in line for boarding and review our tickets and then made us stand there for 75 minutes before boarding."
Pros: "Modern aircraft with power, big screens etc"
Cons: "Teenage crew, poor service (not even water brought on request, all "self service" at back of flight, and not being allowed a second drink with dinner), poor language skills (crew not very helpful when 2 hour delay meant I could miss connecting flight, suggesting I "walk fast")."
Pros: "The food was okay and the staff were friendly."
Cons: "My seat and several others around me were broken so that they would fall all the way back if we leaned back at all. The entertainment system kept crashing and forgetting what shows everyone on board we’re watching. There were no air vents to control. The games crashed constantly. The usb hubs didn’t work."
Pros: ". Budget airline with no legroom or extras"

Pros: "Good service all around, personnel pleasant"
Cons: "Very difficult to find where to register with the flight but this is more tied to the way things are run by the airport"
Pros: "Leg room is bigger than average, there is also a foot step which helps you to relax."
Cons: "There must be lice on the plane, either from the customer or on the seats. Got bitten 6 times on the leg and butt!!! And this is not the first time hearing same story, Air France definitely needs to disinfect the plane more thoroughly. Media center is outdated, touch screen isn’t working well, felt being punched in head every time when ppl behind you tries to touch the screen!"

Cons: "Couldn't organise a booze up in brewery. Baggage offload took forever"
Pros: "The flight was good overall. Friendly crew good attention."
Cons: "There was a delay due to technical dificulties in previous flight. This caused a delay in take off and no AC while waiting in the plane for 40 minutes."
Pros: "Loved the lovely food and wine from Air France, they even serve fresh french bread with camembert, ice cream, champagne (in economy) and brandy with your coffee!"
Cons: "The cabin on the 777-200 was far too hot (about 25c) and with no individual air vent I found this unbearable on a 12 hour flight. And despite the flight taking place entirely during daylight hours and leaving at 10:30 am, inexplicably we were made to all pull our blinds down and the lights went off after a couple of hours - in the middle of the day and for about 8 hours! So although I had paid for a window seat there was nothing to see apart from the window shade. As it was the middle of the day I could not go to sleep, the person in front of me reclined fully so for me the flight was a hot, claustropobic, dark hell. An utterly miserable experience. I felt like I was going mad, trapped in my own little cell."
Pros: "The food was great. Very filling and hot foods were hot and cooked thoroughly. For our 8 hour flight we were served 2 meals and snacks and plenty of hot drinks which was nice.The entertainment was great got to watch movies and play games and also learn language through games."
Cons: "It was very hot in there probably hotter than it should be. Not much air flow I was sweating the whole flight. Because of this I couldn't sleep it was kinda miserable not gonna lie."
