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: "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!"
Cons: "They re issued my boarding pass Doha, for Dallas flight and gave us the last seat on the plane, even though I chosed the seat at the time of booking. Food was ok, but when we asked for the chicken they didn’t had it. It’s an international flight of 15 hours with food shortage???"
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: "Had the best flight experience of my life. Comfort, food & especially service was excellent."

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"

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: "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: "Amazing crew. Seats comfortable"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"

Pros: "I love everything about Emirates."
Pros: "Legroom and seats Entertainment"
Cons: "Slow service Sparing on refreshments"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The crew was non existent when something was needed, and a flight attendant tried to move us from our purchased seats to accommodate a woman who moved 3 times. While the attendant was mistaken; he insisted on seeing disturbing our sleep and asked to see our boarding pass as if we were not being honest. All that he said was , “oops, wrong row” and moved on as if nothing happened. No apology, nothing."
Pros: "Nice flight sttendents"
Cons: "Seats too small"
Pros: "Efficient and good actually good for airline food"
Cons: "Electronic equipment a bit out dated and below standard"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."
Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"
Pros: "The food was good for economy"
Cons: "My seat was about 70% of the size of a normal one. It gave me back pain and shoulder pain as the wall encroaches into the seat space. Do not under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES take the window emergency exit seats. They charge you extra but don’t warn you that they are tiny. I am of relatively normal (althletic) build not overweight or unusually tall etc. They initially told me there were no other free seats so I ended up sat on the floor. Turns out there were free seats. They lied."
Cons: "Bad terminal atmosphere. Hot and dirty. Pool management transportation to airplan. Man in black suit officer bad manner for service."
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Pros: "very comprehensive entertainment system"
Cons: "Food quality was a letdown. Crew was very rushed with meal service and did not return to offer drinks once meal service concluded. No ammenity pack for a business flight."
Pros: "Food nd entertainment"
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Cons: "Flights are always good but back office staff is always careless not to bother any complaints or never solved any complaints they do not care of customer bcoz they have business thier is no other airline right now but in future may be they loose customer like me"
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "Excellent food, good timing of food, drinks, etc. helpful flight attendants who were efficient and not overbearing."
Cons: "The plane was very cold when we got on, and it was difficult to get a blanket. It was also very cold when landing when we were required to give our blankets back!"
Pros: "Entertainment was very good. Enough variety to pass the time."
Cons: "The aisles were blocked a lot of the time making it hard to get to the toilets."
Pros: "Your staff are amazing....very welcoming, attentive and a joy to be around. I was comfortable i.e leg room was right for my long legs."
Cons: "You offer limited choices on food with consideration to Diversity of your clientelle. Your meal vouchers offer substandard meals in the few selected restaurants. I had layover period of 10hrs on.my return leg and about 6/7hrs. These are extremely long hours to sleep on those uncomfortable lounge chairs. This was the worst experience in my flying time."
Cons: "The service i received from airfare.com and Kayak."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Pros: "The crew and leg room"
Cons: "Food was very spicy and oily. My 3 year old three up after consuming the fried rice. Boarding was veru chaotic."
Pros: "The crew surprised my fiancé and me with a champagne and cheese cake toast in the middle of the flight. It was incredibly thoughtful as I had only told two of them about our new engagement."
Cons: "We could clearly hear several of the crew bickering about things at several points of the flight."
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Pros: "The quiet flight I've been in , the crew were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The standard meal was spicy to me , change the menu with more choices of healthy suitable for flight"
Pros: "Everything was great and the service was really good. The drinks were really nice with many options including a half bottle of red wine."
Cons: "My food took sometime to come back as they ran out of lamb. The clean up service took awhile and my used cups were still on the table. But overall I like the Emirates."
Pros: "It was an empty flight with much space to stretch my feet and sleep in comfort! service was great and landing was extremely good (didn't feel it at all)."
Pros: "Watched the entire Mike Tyson Mysteries box set."
Cons: "The ending of the Steve Jobs movie was a little pat."
Pros: "good baby gifts"
Cons: "a bassinet brought for 40 minutes before landing. Forgot to feed. I had to demand a meal for me and the baby and toddler. In the cabin cold. With this flight crew the flight attendants did not like."

Pros: "Perfect was everything"
Cons: "Prices was high"
Pros: "We were told by terminal staff in Istanbul that the fkught was on Turkish Airlines.We waited in line at the first ticket counter and then we were sent to a second ticket counter where we waited in line again. We were sent to a 3rd counter where the Supervisor was chatting with a lady for 20 minutes. When we reached the counter we were told it was too late to board and we had missed our flight even though there were still 35 minutes to flight time. Turkish Airlines staff would not help us any further and we had to go purchase another ticket."
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."

Pros: "Crew and service One of the flight attendant saved my daughter when she Was chucking on nuts , they went above and beyond Just duty and did everything in their power to save her"
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: "The flight was smooth and almost ontime. Professional staff that was active throughout the flight assisting passengers."
Cons: "The access to the gate was through an escalator only, therefore people on wheelchair or families with strollers could not get to the gate easily."
Pros: "Professional and friendly staff. Excellent film selection."
Cons: "Not enough security staff at Istanbuñ and no one from the airline to assist. The queues were too long at security so I had to run to make my flight. Lots of other people had the same trouble and I believe my cousin missed her connection."
Pros: "Fast boarding and well maintained airplane"
Cons: "Flight attendants could check on passengers more often. They seemed to just serve the standard drinks/meals and then disappear."
Pros: "had a medical emergency mid flight and the crew was fantastic and accommodating."

Pros: "Everything, Good service, timely and on pojnt"
Cons: "There was a slight delay on landing"
Cons: "No entertainment at all"
Cons: "The fact that I missed my connection flight in Thailand because of a two hour delay. I was never informed why there was so much of a delay and in turn I had to pay triple of what I payed before for my flight. Very disappointed. Won't be flying this airline again. Service was rude. They should be more responsible when it comes to timing. We were on the flight waiting for two hours!!!"
Pros: "The flight was great. It was before the flight that was highly stressful"
Cons: "Boarding procedures in Istanbul were terrible. No communication. Lots of anxiety and stress. Running through airports."
Pros: "liked the staff, and the plane was nice"
Cons: "boarding was a little chaotic, and the plane was so hot. was sitting on tarmac for 40 minutes and it was unbearably hot!"
Pros: "Lots of room on the plane, light meals but good, helpful service"
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "Almost everything but the checkin process at JFK with Turkish Air agent speaking poor English and casting doubt that everything is going to be fine with my trip. Instead she was reacting "the rules are changing every day" and didn't not weather I should need visa for my native country (?!) although I have showed I was born in that country (Macedonia) and the holders of US passports (which I am) -- do not need entry visa to that country. Everything else was good or excellent -- especially food and airplane crew."
Cons: "The checkin process at JFK with Turkish Air agent at JFK (New York) on May 24 - 2017."
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: "Trip was excellent. Plane was new and clean; good good; service very friendly."
Cons: "The delayed boarding and take off."
Cons: "I stayed in Istanbul Airport for 16 hours with no hotel or even a meal."
Pros: "comfortable. enjoyed the staff. enjoyed the movies music and travel information on the personal screen."
Cons: "They changed my flight date so many times, I was unable to fly"

Pros: "The free hotel provided by Turkish airline is very nice too."
Pros: "This was the return flight I skipped base on the horrible customer service I received on the first leg of the flight."
Cons: "The bording process, the customer service and attention."
Cons: "Terrible food. I saw many others leave the food, only have bread and fruits. The same to me."
Cons: "2 hour departure delay."
Cons: "time was to long between planes"
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
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: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and service was great. They have entertainment options, and working plugs so I could charge my laptop (I often end up with one that doesn't work on other airlines). Would definitely fly Turkish again."

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "Food was not very good."
Pros: "Service was awesome top to bottom"

Pros: "The service was excellent The Pullman Hotel was an excellent choice for dissatisfied customers. The staff was friendly and understanding."
Cons: "Only an hour between connection so the connection was missed.Also the airline only gave a food vouchers for one restaurant.

Cons: "The lack of leg room in the huge plane"

Pros: "Liked everything about the airline - great service."

I wanted to check in online but I had to no reservation or ticket number is provided so I had to go to my old reservations to find it. .Next I wanted to pay for my luggage online but there was no link given. It says you can do it cheaper on Lufthansa.com but I could not find where you can actually do that. All in all spend 30 minutes with no result. Had to pay at check in $44 instead of $27. And it was just one of many other problems and inconveniences with their website."
Pros: "Boarding process and email updates."
Cons: "Business class on European domestic flights is nothing more than coach seats with no one seated in the middle. Better than coach, but not by much and not worth the extra money."
Pros: "Great crew. Ontime. Great online check in process."
Cons: "When we got off the plane in Frankfurt, they put us in shuttle buses to take us to the terminal. My wife and I got separated and were on different buses. The two buses took us to different terminals, despite airport staff assuring us that there was only one drop-off point for the shuttles. If there was a sign saying which terminal the shuttle was going to, it was not clear."
Pros: "cabin crew were all very nice!"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
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: "Comfortable and clean planes. Flight was on time. Free drink!"
Cons: "Check in with checked baggage required an agent. As with almost every flight in Europe, boarding was chaotic, not following zones, priority or people requiring assistance/gate agents did not enforce the boarding rules."
Pros: "I have the option to have a special meal. (vegan)"
Cons: "I have to ask for my special meal in advance."
Pros: "On board crew was outstanding"
Cons: "The quality of food was substandard"

Cons: "movie selection limited"
Pros: "Entertainment and food were good."
Cons: "We departed late from Stockholm and then had to do a fly around when we approached Frankfurt because there was debris on the runway. We nearly missed our connection because of the delays."
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."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Seat was very narrow"
Pros: "The caring of the air hostesses"
Cons: "The space was very limited"

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: "Please see above. Typed in the wrong place."
Cons: "The flight was canceled because of terrible engine maintenance problem. After leaving the aeroplane no information or structured assistance was given. If I did not have roaming and would have called to re route I would have been possibly stranded in Berlin TEGEL for more than a day."
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude, inattentive, and unhelpful. Made us put both carry-ons under our seats while other people had both carry-ons in overheads. Super uncomfortable flight and terrible experience."
Pros: "Great crew, smooth flight, enough leg room, but no reclining seats"
Pros: "Crew was nice, doing the best they could under the circumstances."

Pros: "Smooth flight. No complaints"

Pros: "The boarding process and flight was smooth and punctual"
Cons: "We were stuck on the plane for over an hour after we landed in Munich without enough updates on the situation. We waited for the stairs and bus to come then when we got to the terminal our bags did not come and I had to get my baggage shipped. This was very inconvenient and there was not any notification for the baggage delay."
Pros: "In terms of things I liked flying with UA998 from Brussels to EWR: The boarding staff at Brussels airport was helpful, courteous and knowledgeable. Boarding procedure was smooth even with the extra security screening at the gate."
Cons: "It was quickly clear to me that the passengers where simply an inconvenience to some of the crew on UA998. As an example I fell asleep during take off and woke up in the middle of the meal service. The cart was only a couple of rows behind me in the half-ful Economy Plus section so I got up and tried to get the attention of the staff. The lady turned around and confirmed that "I had woken up" with a sigh, as is not only was it inconvenient to her that I was a sleep, now I had the nerves to actually ask for a meal. She presented me with the options of pasta and chicken and I politely asked what they where served with. She straight out said that "she really did not know that" and asked me to make a choice. I wont get into any other examples, the machine was half full at best and there was no stress, so frustrating to be treated like you are an inconvenience to the USA based staff who clearly just wanted to be left alone. The entertainment system barely worked, the touch monitor was very hard to operate - the pressure sensitive functionality was not working properly but I managed to get to my movie and avoid the Chinese subtitles in the third try. I fly United because it's part of Star Alliance, but otherwise I would try and avoid at all cost."

Pros: "Great plane and staff"
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: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."

Cons: "It was not entreteiment st all"
Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."

Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"

Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Pros: "The food service was good and the flight attendants were friendly."

Pros: "Nice seats, comfortable."
Cons: "Again, no aisle seat for SkyTeam Gold member. Also, my baggage was lost. First bag arrived a day late, second after I had left Billund and it was six days before the bag with my clothes reached me. I was told I will have 100 euro credit for clothing, but in the winter and for 6 days, this was not even close to the amount I needed for clothing and necessities, to have my time here."
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."
Pros: "The flight was great."
Pros: "The included snacks and the seats."

Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
