Cons: "For a premium economy service, it was really good."
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable, crew was very nice,"
Cons: "food is average. TV screens are so bad that you cant watch a full movie. Seat is comfortable. Over all the plane was old and worn out"
Pros: "This was the most comfortable business class mid haul flight I've ever taken."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing went wrong."
Pros: "Dim sum between Hong Kong & Singapore."
Pros: "Lie-flat seats in business class"
Cons: "4 hrs delay due to failure of Singapore Airlines to have a working plane on site at the appointed time. Even worse: chaotic deplaning with one crew member telling passengers to deplane and another yelling at them in the bridge for doing so. A mess of lines trying to get a new boarding pass for a rebooked missed connection—at the front of the line the agent said oh, you need to wait in this other line. Agents had no clue where to direct passengers and gave incorrect directions that necessitated more waiting. No updates to new flight time in the business class lounge. Once the flight was in the air, service was terrible. Attendants would ask for orders, then never bring them or bring the wrong thing."
Pros: "Great service always smiling, flight on time, overall a great way to fly."
Pros: "Prompt boarding, friendly service, decent food, plentiful entertainment. Singapore Airlines was a great choice for my flight from Texas to England."
Pros: "SIA service and food is always good. The flight went by quickly which is good."
Cons: "The entertainment system for the 777 did not have a touchscreen which I have been accustomed to on other SIA flights, but the main issue was the brightest setting for the screen was very dim. I think the screen is just old and not as bright as before."
Pros: "Loved the food/Movies/seats."
Cons: "No air vents and the cabin was very very stuffy and warm for many people. I’ve never heard one child cry for 7+ hours before until this flight. But everything else was decent to say the very least:)"
Pros: "Seats in economy were larger than United. Food was good for airplane food, even found a last minute vegetarian meal not ordered ahead. Appreciated a gratis glass of wine. Found a clean pillow and blanket in every seat upon boarding."
Cons: "My screen had to be reset twice as it froze up. The attendants kept taking my water cups despite them not being empty. Boarding was less than organized, could have been more efficient. We made up time, arriving a few minutes early even after departing late."
Pros: "In flight entertainment systems"
Cons: "I had beef with mashed potatoes but I found the beef was quite tough."
Pros: "Flight crew, food, boarding and entertainment great."
Cons: "Just didn't like the 7 hour delay for the flight. Nobody's fault."
Pros: "I dropped my scarf and only realized after I was seated. People were still boarding and I told a young man attendant and he found it and brought it to me. And he was such a gentleman too! Wish I knew his name but it was Frankfurt to JFK 835am flight on April 3rd. Thank you again!"
Pros: "Very good service."
Pros: "Love the promptness of services, always with a smile!"
Pros: "The staff were so friendly and helpful."

Cons: "one of the oldest planes i ever used"
Cons: "Foods serving were too slow for economy class. Not enough selections for entertainment."
Pros: "Can't think of. We have been using Singapore Air for years and they were good. However, our recent few flights with them have been disappointing (hence the need for this review) - there's nothing to be happy about."
Cons: "Writing on behalf of my wife. All staff that she met have sour face, perhaps to signal the passengers not to approach them? True enough, the cabin crew did not help her to place her bag in the luggage compartment; the cabin crew did not serve water when requested, and on second attempt, the cabin crew told her to request at the ground. The cabin crews she has encountered clearly expressed their unwillingness to serve with their face and action. Is this the new direction of Singaore Air? The entertainment system requires installation of an app, hence is practically useless since we do not have the app preinstalled in our device."
Pros: "Crew was overall friendly"
Cons: "Old plane, entertainment system very old and doesn't work properly, wake you up in the middle of the night for breakfast, service not efficient as half of the plane orders Indian food and get served first"
Cons: "Not enough vegetarian options. Food not that great for business class. Not enough English new release movies. Many were old. Could be improved."
Cons: "I reserved a window seat on this site but was given a middle row instead when I checked in."
Pros: "Delayed flight from Shanghai due to air traffic issues, so I had a 10 minute window to make my connection in Singapore. Ground staff was waiting for me with a small car after I disembarked to drive me to the gate. And I somehow made my connection. Excellent service. Obviously my checked bag didn't make it, but I was told in advance and was kept updated before boarding and immediate after I disembarked at my final destination. When I went to the baggage service counter, they were already ready for me, had filled out my paperwork, and just needed an address to confirm the delivery of my suitcase. I'm super impressed to this attention to detail."
Pros: "Liked everything from service to comfort"
Cons: "Old planes and screens."
Pros: "Neat & clean flight.good cabin crew members.good service."

Pros: "The meals were great, the seats very comfortable, the entertainment system very good as well."

Cons: "The in-flight entertainment systems are really showing some wear & tear. The screen was blurry, the letters on the control buttons had work off and the sound quality was terrible."

Pros: "The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. The plane itself was clean and there were plenty of bathrooms. It was great to have two free meals, drinks and entertainment making a 10 hour flight go by faster. I love the eye masks and ear plugs to make sleeping on a plane easier. All around success and would fly again with them!"
Cons: "On the flight home the crew seemed a little confused who was in charge of my row. I had to go get myself the customs forms and a pen. Also the front of the plan was extremely hot compared to the back."
Pros: "The Airbus was quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "Layovers in Dubai can often be pretty hefty. Why print a menu? It's a waste of money and paper."
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: "I was amazed to be upgraded to Business class!!! I wonder why. Anyway, the service was amazing, and the staff very friendly and helpful!!! The food was superb."
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?"
Pros: "The food was horrible. We were served almost an hour late after everyone and not given and option to select our food. I would like some kind of response from the airline service on this."
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: "All was good"
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "Really comfortable plane, and the service and food were exceptional!"
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."
Pros: "Great entertainment choice on board. Free, cheap in-flight Wi-Fi."
Cons: "No free seat selection available anymore until checkin."
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: "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."
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: "This is the 4th times I use Emirates and they maintain their standards. The entertainment is very good, a lot of new movies and tv shows, in many languages. The quality of the plane is still amazing, I love Airbus even in economy class and I am 6'2 tall. So enough space for my legs, the plane seemed to be pretty new. Love it. No problem during the boarding. Staff very efficient at that time The same during the flight. they were there to provide us a high standards services. Thank you Emirates."
Cons: "The food portion were pretty small BUT there were some leftover that the crew agree to give if you asked for. So at the end not too bad."
Pros: "On time Large LCD in each seat back They kept the public announcements to a minimum"
Cons: "It took asking 5 crew members and 2 hours to fix one of our screens that wasn't working. Apparently there were other displays that did not work either so they reset everybody's LCDs. The food was bland"
Cons: "Good and entertainment"
Pros: "Had a whole row to myself"
Cons: "Food wasn’t great"
Pros: "To be honest I liked everything from the speed of boarding to food and entertainment systems. Seats were roomy too."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "A normal flight with good service but at a really good price. I fly 15 or more times a year and would definitely do this one again."
Pros: "The seat was average for the 4 hour flight. The long trip from LAX to Seoul was much more comfortable . Seats were wider and more comfortable . Food was better also !"
Pros: "To Vietnam"
Cons: "I’m regarded as disabled, usually I have TSA pre-check privilege in most of the airline I took before but unfortunately, I couldn’t get any from Asiana. The guy helped me on checking in told me that AsIan’s didn’t provide this service to the customer. I felt not quite happy but ok with this. The one made me feel upset is they didn’t give me pre-boarding even though they already noticed that I’m disabled. I needed to wait on the line for over 25 minutes, my left leg very tired. I can walk but I can’t stand for long time, it hurts my back and leg. I got almost same style Vegetarian food in both dinner and breakfast, all vegetables, no tofu at all."
Pros: "More or less the same entertainment selection, so I enjoyed the movies on this one as well."
Cons: "The seats were awkward - my body curved inward on the seat."
Pros: "Boarded plane, woke up to watch one movie the arrive in Seoul. Plane was clean on time no hassles"
Cons: "The food. Aused from the serving size, only 2 meal and 1 small snack served for the whole 12 hr flight. Got my gastric pain acting up. FA wasn't also very pleasant. Toiletries wasn't replace when they ran out especially d papers for seat covers."

Cons: "The food is always our problem, bec we r not used to eating Korean food, and by the time they ask us what food we can get? They run out every time they get to us , who , like us who are in the back seats- all is left is Korean food and we have no choice! Please make more food varieties, thank you"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "2/4 bathrooms were out of order"
Pros: "Good attention"
Cons: "The flight from Korea to San Francisco was so late more than 2 hours"
Pros: "Everything's was excelent. I was happy to chosen Asiana Airline"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. It was a very long flight, but the crew did a great job of trying to ensure adequate drinks were available and passengers were comfortable. I also enjoyed the individually packaged toothe brush and toothe paste availability."
Cons: "The seats were a bit uncomfortable for such a long flight. I'm 6'2" and had ok legroom, but the seats were a bit hard requiring frequent adjustments."
Pros: "It was fine. More leg room than some airlines."
Cons: "Not enough water to drink. Not cold."
Cons: "No good Korean movies to watch."
Pros: "Always enjoy Asiana, clean planes good service no hassles"
Pros: "The crew was lovely and very helpful. They were attentive and constantly providing beverages. The films were nice and a large selection. The food was delicious and it was overall a lovely flight which was nice since it was over 13 hours in length."
Cons: "It would have been nice for slightly more space but it is definitely not the most cramped economy class I have sat in. Additionally, it would have been nice to have different movies from my flight to Seoul but there is so much too choose from that this is not a real issue either."
Pros: "For the duration of 5.5hours, 1 main meal and 1 snack were served. Prompt drinks and meal service"
Cons: "No personal inflight entertainment. Only a few screens from the ceiling, with poor viewing angles."
Pros: "As expected, the crews' service were good. Comfortable seats and nice meals."
Cons: "On the way back to Singapore, there was no entertainment in each seat. Didn't expect this and never experience from my previous flight with Asiana. There was the main screen in the centre but I can't choose and the lights were on all the way when I tried to sleep. Disappointed that they didn't inform in advance. People expect Asiana as same as SQ which provides full of new equipment such as personal screen on each seat."
Pros: "Enjoyed flying on the upper deck of Asiana's Airbus A380. Seat was spacious and comfortable. Food was adequate and the options were good. Service from the crew was excellent. Entertainment options met expectations."
Cons: "Can't complain about boarding from Seoul to LA, but boarding from LA to Seoul and Manila to Seoul were a bit chaotic. Passengers were confused from the lack of organization, instruction or signs. Cabin temperature was quite warm, to the point of being uncomfortable, on the flight from Seoul to LA."
Pros: "It's just cozy and wonderful. Thank you Asiana."
Cons: "Nothing that I can mention about."
Pros: "Food, service were great"
Pros: "Asiana staff are not trained in medical issues such as what to do when a passenger complains they are feeling weak from low blood sugar/hypoglycemia conditions. It is common for people with low blood sugar to have blood sugar drops while flying. The condition is dangerous if not handled properly but can be remedied very easily by simply increasing a passenger's intake of protein (such as chicken or beef) and carbohydrates, such as rice (but not white bread or deserts, as those cause spikes and drops in blood sugar). Basically, you only need an extra meal. I told a crew member about my condition and said I simply needed a second meal. She gave me a problem about it and at first refused. She understood the English words low blood sugar, but she was obviously not trained in that common issue. I was ready to pass out due to a drop in blood sugar and only when I threatened to file a lawsuit in a U.S. court against Asiana (as I anticipated passing out) did she react. Within a few seconds after I mentioned a potential lawsuit, she got me a second meal of chicken and rice. I ate it and the protein and carbs stabilized my blood sugar for the rest of the flight. It's a problem easily remedied but I had to argue with the flight attendant to grant my very simple but very necessary request. Asiana needs to comply with the norms of global carriers and train its staff to understand such comment conditions as low blood sugar. U.S. and European carrier understand this condition very well, and their crews are trained in how to handle it by simply giving extra food. Asiana needs to comply with modern, global norms."
Cons: "If you have low blood sugar dont take Asiana. Crew not trained in this simple medical issue."
Pros: "I like the crew and comfort of seats with foot rest."
Cons: "I got sick from the food the next day and didn't look me flights running late related to first class people not arriving to terminal on time."
Cons: "Had issues getting our boarding pass for the second leg of the flight, lots of run around in Incheon airport that could've been avoided"
Pros: "Crew was excellent - very kind, friendly, efficient, and provided wonderful customer service. The food was good, seats were comfortable. I'll definitely fly Asiana again, when I'm in the region."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and the food for economy was good."
Cons: "13 hour from Seoul to NYC and the crew never once went into and took care of any of the four bathrooms in the lower cabin in economy class. On the flight two weeks before from JFK - they did a great job on the bathrooms.On both flights there was no need for the constant interruptions telling us to put the seat belts on. Just turn on the light no need to make an announcements in two languages."
Pros: "The food was excellent when the steward decides to serve you."
Cons: "4 of 4 flights were all delayed and the in flight entertainment is very limited."
Pros: "The staff were excellent and very kind and attentive."

Pros: "The entertainment option was pretty good"
Cons: "There's very limited legroom on this plane."

By the time, we get off my shirt was soaking wet. Imagine flying for so long under these conditions. What an horrible customer service!"
Pros: "Excellent service, entertainment, the food and drink options were good and a 10 hour flight was made as comfortable as can be."
Pros: "I love how comfortable they made everyone, they made an 11 hour flight feel more like an 3 hour flight....best airline ever for me and my family..... I will be sending them a Thank You card."
Cons: "There wasn't nothing that I didn't like . I love me some Turkish airline."
Pros: "Service, food, and entertainment options were fantastic!"
Cons: "The process of having to check small electronics needs to be streamlined, but that's still new, so understandable"
Pros: "Everything was great. All staff were very pleasant and attentive. Really liked their customer service."
Cons: "The chairs in economy line were uncomfortable after a couple of hours. It was really hard to sleep."
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Cons: "The international transfer line in Istanbul was an absolute nightmare. I had to jump to the front of the line or I would have missed my connection despite having a 90 minute window of time to make it through. It seems this airport lacks the capacity needed to get people through efficiently based on the numbers of travelers using it."
Pros: "Our 11.5 hour flight took 16 hours due to weather in Chicago. We were forced to land in Detroit for over 2 hours. The crew smiled while they answered questions and dealt with some very difficult passengers. The food was Turkish, but very tasty and in large portions. The entertainment included several movies that had just recently been released to DVD. Overall it was great service."
Cons: "The communication was not what it should have been. While in Detroit, we were often left for extended periods of time with no update or information as to when we would be able to complete our flight. I realize they were at the mercy of O'Hare, but they should have made some announcement every 15 minutes or so just to "keep us posted" if nothing else. Also, there was quite a bit of confusion for passengers whose final destination was Detroit. I had to explain to the Flight Attendant that they needed to explain to the passengers why they couldn't deplane there. She phoned the pilot and he provided an appropriate explanation. This really my only complaint."
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Pros: "Everyone was very welcoming and attentive to everything I needed during my flight."
Pros: "The Welcome from the crew member and Istanbul airport"
Cons: "Food, Drinks and the service from Crew."
Cons: "we had to stop in berlin. we were not informed about the length of the stop. food service stopped in the middle and then resumed 4 hrs later. the crew did not offer snacks instead. wifi did not work on the plane so we could not inform our families of the delay. headset was not working on both ears. boarding was very long due to extra security checks. not sure why u need to go through this twice..."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
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: "Great entertainment and food."
Cons: "Boarding was very long."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "I found the physical environment very comfortable, clean , a young dynamic crew who were very attentive and helpful"
Pros: "I didn't like what airline did to my mother-in-law was here arrive at JFK an hour before her flight left because another airline counter day or late day since she was a no-show when the plane is still sitting there and she was there an hour before the plane left I would never fly this airline and I will let everyone know that this is the most corrupt airline out there"
Cons: "I didn't like what airline did to my mother-in-law was here arrive at JFK an hour before her flight left because another airline counter day or late day since she was a no-show when the plane is still sitting there and she was there an hour before the plane left I would never fly this airline and I will let everyone know that this is the most corrupt airline out there"

Cons: "The plane is so old..,"

Pros: "Nice seats. Only seats with a row of 2, which is what I wanted,"
Cons: "Larger meals."
Pros: "Smooth and faster than expected trip. I felt free to get up and walk around on this long flight. Food was good. I sat in seat with extra leg room for the first time and it was worth it"
Pros: "We got to Amsterdam on time"

Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Pros: "short, sweet and to the point. 1+ hour flight is usually an easy hop."
Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Pros: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."
Cons: "Not a big fan of paying for a few extra inches of leg room in a better seat after paying for a ticket."
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Pros: "Fabulous trip with friendly, helpful staff"
Pros: "Booked extra room seat which gave me good room for seating"
Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Service was a little slow going through the gate, it seemed to take a while for everyone to get on board."
Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."

Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."
Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"
Cons: "Departure 40 mins late. I took this flight 2 weeks ago and it was also delayed."
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
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."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Cons: "Klm flight has very congested seating Getting information about eticket was pain"
Pros: "The staff and crew"
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: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Seat space was good for a short flight, inclusive of free snack and drink."
Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."
Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"
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."
Pros: "The price was nice."
Cons: "Plane looked unkept on exterior. Crew was nice but lazy."
