Pros: "Great foods and services"
Cons: "The plane needs upgrade business class seats"

Pros: "Ok boarding, plane was new, entertainment system was up to date"
Cons: "Premium economy service is even worse than economy as crew is never around and busy in economy. Seats are bigger but not really comfortable. Food is same as economy. Doesn't worth it to buy premium economy."

Pros: "Kindy flight attedances,,smooth boarding,,delicious food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment system ok"
Cons: "Change if gate 30 minutes before departure and no info at old gate. New gate very far away, terrible for old people."

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."

Cons: "My moslem meal selection wasn’t provided onboard"

Pros: "Well organized boarding, friendliness of staff, food service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by about an hour."

Pros: "Great service!"

Cons: "The toilets were a little unsanitary."

Cons: "Flight was late due to the eternal airtraffic mess at suvanabhumi whenever it rains"

Pros: "They were polite."
Cons: "Not as attentive as ANA or China Airlines. I had to give 4-5 request to get what I want."

Pros: "Entertainment ok but not newest, boarding smooth, food ok"
Cons: "Long waiting time for baggage, food not exceptional"

Pros: "My neighbor"
Cons: "Fight war delayed and we got a security check upon arrival"

Pros: "Brand new aircraft, excellent service and food"
Cons: "J class seat, 12A window. Top of my seat curled around my sides, which blocked vision thru 1.5 of the 3 windows I had access to. The enclosure also protuded into my left bicep when I had my elbow resting on the arm rest. Table on my right hand side was too close to my body, and to high to reach a drink easily, I literally had to lift my whole right arm to pick up a glass."

Pros: "Cabin crew was top notch - even in coach they could not be more accommodating and customer friendly. US airline flight attendants don’t even come close to this team that truly serviced the cabin for 8 hours continuously without the typical hiding in the back of the plane and chatting. Very encouraging that genuine care in the air is very much alive and well on Singapore Air! I will fly them every chance I get!"
Cons: "That my flight had to end and I know my next US airline flight won’t come close to this kind of experience! Air travel doesn’t have to be a cattle herding process with peanut treats on cross country flights - shame on the US carriers - I strongly suggest they fly Singapore Air to see what true customer service feels like!"

Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Disinfectant smell."

Pros: "Boarding was good and the flight time was shorter than expected."
Cons: "My son did not like any of the meal selections between beef and fish. We asked for a ramen noodle cup instead that the flight crew denied they had, only after seeing them offer it to another family just seconds before. I was very disappointed!! I believe the flight attendant knew of my concerns because she started asking me if the service was ok. If your doing a good job, then you won’t have to ask."

Pros: "In flight entertainment systems"
Cons: "I had beef with mashed potatoes but I found the beef was quite tough."

Cons: "The desserts. The bun."

Pros: "Arrived"
Cons: "Boarding a mess, 30% boarded as "business". Food terrible. Entertainment system doesn't work on a lot of seats as plane is very old. Cabin crew not able to handle the passengers, delayed in every aspect and forget to serve passengers. Shitty flight and service."

Pros: "check-in, priority lane, BKK-SKL, boarding, crew, cabin, disembark, baggage claim to cab home"
Cons: "baby crying throughout the flight"

Pros: "Ease of check in, very quick."
Cons: "Older plane, entertainment system incredibly slow, plane needs tidying up, starting to look its age."

Pros: "The staff were so friendly and helpful."

Cons: "I Booked a flight that stated that it only had one stop in singapore, then direct to SFO after arriving in singapore i was told that i had to go to a transfer counter, that there was a problem with my ticket. after arriving at the transfer counter they took my boarding pass for my dircet flight to SFO, & told me that i now had a stop in hong kong, that the direct flight to SFO was over booked!! this is not right i wouldn't of booked this flight if they had been truthfull about the extra stop. i will never use singapore airline or kayak again!!!"

Pros: "Great experience"
Cons: "Seating arrangement was bad"

Pros: "But I got to take Qatar airline and the service was great"
Cons: "Almost missed the flight, havent noticed the passengers in prior"

Cons: "Mediocre food, lousy entertainment system that belongs to the last decade. Singapore Airlines has not been the premium carrier it was a decade ago and is now simply a so-so airline charging exorbitant fares."

Pros: "Service is the best among the airlines I’ve ever taken"
Cons: "Never ever get free upgrade"

Pros: "Best Inflight Service Best Inflight Food Best Lounge"

Pros: "To be honest I had a pretty bad flight because my allergies exploded during the entire flight - constant sneezing, runny nose, you name it. However, the attentiveness of the crew really made up for it. The cabin was decorated with tiny wreathes (so cute!), and the pillow/blanket was very comfortable/warm for an Economy seat. Although I did not use it as much, the entertainment seemed top-notch. And the crew-- they noticed that I was not feeling well, and offered me peppermint tea and snacks that did sooth things a bit (you can request for snack/beverage refills anytime!). I loved that they gave out black socks to the passengers too (I prefer taking my shoes off during the flight, so the socks added warmth & prevented my own socks from getting dirty). All in all, it was one of the best-serviced long flights I had, not to mention probably the most affordable price I paid for my annual trip to Korea (from LA)."

Pros: "Again very friendly and efficient service ."

Pros: "Boarding ok, timely departure. Food very good for plane food."
Cons: "Announced early landing but then doing circles without any update, we ended up being 30min late. Updates would have been good."

Pros: "The service crew served us well. They are friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Too many Indian movies"

Pros: "friendly staff top Service top Inflight"
Cons: "new aircraft, 2 x usb charging ports, 50+ movies, very quiet aircraft."

Pros: "The staff was very responsive and the food was great. Ground staff in SIngapore helped me to modify the tickets due to us missing our connection to Phuket. Very helpful. Irene at the transfer desk was an excellent manager. The wheel chair staff was excellent all through."
Cons: "It would be great it the seats were leather so that plane would feel more cleaner."

Pros: "Foot rest, large movie screen, good food"
Cons: "They ran out of diet drinks."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "Crew"

Pros: "evening meal was delicious"
Cons: "breakfast was terrible, and not properly heated, risky food handling not acceptable."

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: "The flight wasn't full so we had a spare seat between us, That made economy barely tolerable."
Cons: "The seats in economy are now Way TOO SMALL! You better start calling Economy - "Stearage"! Food was not as good as on past flights with SA. Movie selection not as good as past SA flights. Earphones supplied are horrible!!!"

Pros: "Very helpful and polite staff"
Cons: "Old B777-200 with small personal screen. And they don't have pillows on board."

Cons: "Heating and serving food in plastic containers."

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

Pros: "Breakfast was good; the first meal was average"

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

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

Pros: "Everything normal as expected on an economy class nothing special."
Cons: "Firstly If the meals we pre booked were actually given to us. Secondly what’s the point of giving menus to coustomer to choose their meal when food availability is limited. Don’t set false expectations to your customer when you can’t deliver on them."

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

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

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

Pros: "Friendly Crew, good entertainment possibilites."
Cons: "Everything has a plastic holding purse."

Cons: "The seats are smaller than other airlines.My entertainment system stopped working mid-flight on a 16 hour flight from Doha to LAX.Food portion is not enough. No hot towels on boarding, no welcome drink or snacks. Food is served only twice on a 16 hour flight.Rude immigration officers"

Pros: "Everything was just average to poor."
Cons: "Baggage was not handled properly. Food is just average. Crew looked very tired, they are probably too much overloaded with work and the airline has poor scheduling of shifts for their crews."

Cons: "Zero customer service, absolute waste of money,. I should have read reviews before using your services"

Pros: "Stuff is Fantastic, food is delicious, a lot of leg room, got to love Qatar Airways. No wonder they’re number one."
Cons: "Nothing"

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

Pros: "The cabin crew was fantastic and made the experience very positive."
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing."

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

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

Pros: "Staff was great"

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

Pros: "Dreamliner"

Pros: "The entertainment was good without any hiccups"
Cons: "The crew was in a hurry burry which didn’t give a very good experience. I would suggest the crew to be little more tolerant and make their customers feel good.foo"

Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"

Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."

Pros: "Fantastic. Crew was the best part! Very accommodating and nice. Looking forward to my next flight with them."

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: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."

Pros: "Crew was helpful On Time Flight Clean aircraft Good food"
Cons: "seat was not much comfortable"

Pros: "Flight was on time and departed as scheduled. Flight was comfortable and seats were decent. Would have liked a little bigger seats and more legroom in the economy seats"
Cons: "Food was not up to par and seats could have been a bit bigger for the economy bracket."

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

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

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

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

Pros: "I liked the food, the crew, and the team at the airport was nice and professional. There was a air host by the name of Zaid or Zain and he was from Bombay. Really nice person and very easy to talk to."

Pros: "Flight was great, best over seas flight I've ever had!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that we had a 10 hour layover in Qatar....and it was when the city was closed down. So there was nothing for my new husband and I to do. I wish that the airline would have given us more direction and help. Or have us a room for the night"

Pros: "I wish this airline had more service within the US!! This airline is impeccable. We flew 16 hours from Doha to Miami and it was amazing. At the airport in Doha the flight representative went above and beyond to accommodate better seating for myself and my son. Luckily it was not a full flight and lots of the passengers had plenty of space. The staff is VERY friendly and VERY professional. I will definitely be giving this airline my hard earned money in the future for reservations as much as I can!!!!"
Cons: "Not one thing!!"

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Food quality - lot's of sugar in child meal. Entertainment system slow. We were forced to move the seats into upright position half an hour before landling on a night flight."

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

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

Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."

Pros: "the flight was very comfortable . the movies were very good."

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: "Wonderful services"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"

Pros: "On time, good crew, easy connection."
Cons: "Hard and tight seats for such long night flight."

Cons: "Steep decline in food quality"

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

Pros: "First of all I have taken Qatar airways to Europe and US HOVER when it comes to Third world like Asia and Africa the send thier most dirty broken airline!!in thialand the pressure was not right according to pilot we stayed on the run way 4 HOURS offered water wrf.? No one communicated with US I think your airline is typical Arab mentality unless you are white I. E American you don't give a shot about your costumers this is the second arb line I droped I will never take ur plane ever!! When I got to Doha all they did was through stupid voucher for food missed my flight no apology rude as staff disgusted y their behaviour and lack of care missed imprtant meetings NEVER AGAIN RACIST AIRLINE TREAT WHITES WITH RESPECT IT NOT BLACK'?? REALLY WELL I I'LL TAKE MY MONEY AWAY THEN I will make Co viols decision to never fly with u"
Cons: "Everything racist disgustinget and never will take this airline nasty dirty broke down twice stayed in the plane for 4 hrs no one apologised"

Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"

Pros: "Entertainment is epic. Speed to get luggage and depart airport was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding crew had difficulty pronouncing "B" and "D", this caused some confusion. If they had said "B for Bravo", and "D for David", it would have helped them a lot."

Cons: "Stuff not helpful, rude and not helping at all despite us being with a baby"

Cons: "Flight lest 2 hours late. Didn’t have my choice of meal. Cabin crew very inattentive. Worst flight ever with Emirates in business class"

Pros: "Great service and attitudes by staff."

Cons: "Because my husband and I couldn't complete the online check in, we ended up sitting on different ends of the plane."

Cons: "2 hour delay sitting in Bangkok airport due to sick passengers and their luggage getting off"

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "On thiime.Good Meal. Professional flight crew."

Pros: "Early landing great service loads of legroom as am 6ft 5"
Cons: "N\a"

Cons: "45 minute wait for luggage on conveyor belt"

Pros: "everything"

Cons: "The flight was delayed for an already tight connection in Dubai. We paid for extra leg room only to be seated by the toilets to watch people throwing up most of the flight. Those same people did not get on the connecting flight and so Emirates managed to take our bags off as well, so we end up in London for a months stay with no luggage. Promises that it will arrive before midnight not kept and currently still waiting for bags to arrive."

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"

Pros: "Space"
Cons: "Breakfast could have been a bit better"

Pros: "Attention to detail Great Entertainment Excellent food Pilot updates on timing"
Cons: "Movie channels and music could be easier to use"

Pros: "It was comfy, the crew seemed genuinely happy, and the food was good. Never going to complain about smoked salmon."
Cons: "I didn't like that my connecting flight was with another airline"

Pros: "The relaxed environment and the crew are amazing"
Cons: "There is always some passengers that drink a bit more than they should but.... there is nothing we can do with it"

Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."

Pros: "Excellent new plane good food friendly staff excellent entertainment"
Cons: "Staff not bring drinks regularly enough"

Pros: "Verry efficient and helpful even with oversize canvas painting,, didn't expect luggage to be transferred so quickly but the made it!"
Cons: "Delay and worry I would miss connection"

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 seats are relatively good on the newer A380s. The film selection was good."
Cons: "The meal was poor."

Pros: "Best airline so far for economy long haul flight, was emerites flight"
Cons: "No Arabs on board but everything in Arabic, no real issues. Would have been hard for my Thai girl to navigate on her own"

Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Why are Emirates business Class seats on 777 so weirdly configured - you have to be a stick insect to squeeze out of bulkhead row 8 window seats because of hideous mock walnut trunk slung between the seats to house aisle TV screen."

Pros: "The in flight entertainment is as good as ever."
Cons: "The food was wore, the staff seemed less happy and the flight was overcrowded. Not a bad experience, really, but slightly worse than the same flight the previous year. Getting to be the world's best airline may be less challenging than remaining such."

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 !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Service was wonderful people very kind enjoying them on the flight was quite beautiful soft and nice wish you good luck ."

Pros: "Service is phenomenal, comfort of the seats and in flight entertainment was fab."
Cons: "Food was mediocre, but then again haven't ever had a wonderful meal on an aeroplane before!"

Pros: "Seating and hospitality"

Pros: "crew food"
Cons: "i asked for a plus blanket, they did not provide me since the plane was full, though so many people were not using it and i felt cold; none help was provided"

Pros: "I like the meals"
Cons: "It is hard to request a window seat"

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: "Everything..."

Cons: "Do not like Dubai airport security setup and the distance one has to walk between arrival and departure gates is a joke especially when your over 70!"

Pros: "Food selection Wine not as good as usual"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Why usher First Class into an area make ten stand up for ten minutes before boarding?"

Pros: "I enjoyed the meals that were provided, the comfortable seats, and all of the flight attendants were very friendly."

Pros: "A380 Emirates get better every time"

Cons: "The food was very poor, the service was not as good as before. For example they didnt provide earplug and sleeping beauty and they served the breakfast too early, so it was not enough time to sleep. After the breakfast there was still plenty of time around 1,5-2 hours. I think with the departure time at 03.00 a.m. the airline try to save one foood just after the departure. The asian noodle what they provided upon request, was not sufficiant neither fit to the rank of the airline."

Pros: "Excellent all the way."

Pros: "Staff, Service, plane, food. Everything"
Cons: "I can't say a word against them."

Cons: "We fid not enjoy the close proximity of several screaming children who insisted in screaming at all hoyrs, making sleep impossible. What was concerning was the reluctance of the staff to intervene. Most disappointing as we did not have any sleep at all overnight."

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."

Cons: "Another meal option was not available when it was my turn."

Pros: "SERVICE!!!! EXCELLENT!!"

Pros: "I was so worried about missing my connecting flight but I got express immigration checkin it was a great gesture, didn't expect it from Emirates"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Entertainment was good, staff friendly and accomodating,"
Cons: "Food was just ok, breakfast lacking, only given croissant and yoghurt, the angled lie flat beds are not as good as the 180 degree lie flats, would be nice to have complete lie flats."

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "There was wery cold on the plane."

Pros: "Crew was very professional and helpful."
Cons: "Transit process at Istanbul airport was not very smooth. Ground staff could have been more helpful."

Cons: "My luggage was lost during transit even thout it was a 1h 50 minute layover."

Pros: "Smooth service"
Cons: "The dessert. Change it from always service mousse"

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

Pros: "Awesome cabin crew, amazing food, more leg room than European and American carriers. Amazing price. What else can you ask for in economy?"

Pros: "Great helpful staff, nice cabin layout with lots of space to sleep, excellent food, free internet, Live TV - what else could you ask for."
Cons: "There was nothing really to dislike here."

Pros: "Food and service in business class were exceptional."
Cons: "Lie-flat seats hard as plank boards!"

Pros: "Entertainment screens good"
Cons: "On the flight from Istanbul to Malaga the entertainment screens were very poor."

Pros: "Check in process, helpful ground crew and airplane"
Cons: "Comfort of seats are horrible for a trip so far, they need more cushion."

Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable. Narrow and hard."

Cons: "The boarding and deplane process could be better for business class. Also the seats only have two settings upright and sleep. Several airlines have intermediate setting for meal/movie. To be 5 Star they need to keep up. The lounge (although large) could use better organizing. Too many people walking all around. Very limited space, if any, for a little quiet."

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Missed my connecting flight. Had to wait 12 hrs in Istanbul for the next flight to Tirana. I missed my mother’s funeral."

Pros: "E"
Cons: "The food was a far miss to my other flight from BBK to Istanbul . I know it was a different flight also being a bit tired after other flight did not help . Otherwise the were excellent ."

Pros: "Another excellent business class service from the team at Turkish Airlines. The food offering was high quality, and the little cultural influences made it an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "The cabin design is perhaps looking a little dated and tired compared to some of its business class competitors. This was also true of comparing the 3 flights I had on a Boing 777 model versus one of the short haul legs on a more modern Airbus."

Pros: "Food"
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: "Comfort and service"

Pros: "Service, timing of flight, entertainment system."
Cons: "There used to be more variety of food choices."

Pros: "Boarding , cabin crew , updated entertainment facilities and Ford's served are excellent."
Cons: "Space between seats is not appropriate for comfortable travel."

Pros: "Food was fine"
Cons: "Plane left late."

Pros: "Very good customer service and entertainment"

Pros: "The quality of their team"

Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"

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

Cons: "the coach seats are really cramped--especially for a 13-hour trip; need to get rid of the buses that take passengers to/from terminal to airplane--wastes precious time with short connections"

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: "Staff serving onboard were very nice and food is ok - selection of movies were good"
Cons: "On two TK flights in a row today the outlets the TK handed out headphones were sub-quality - and I basically had to sit and manually keep them in place during both journeys to be able to hear something. Truly annoying! Also - for some reason service was done by only one person per aisle which meant I had to wait really long time before getting both food and drinks."

Pros: "On board cabin crew service"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding with no preference or acknowledgement of business class or premium level passengers."

Pros: "Food in business class was excellent"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. No preferential early boarding for business class or Star Alliance platinum."

Pros: "Entertainment and boarding was excellent."

Pros: "even waiting time was long but i do appreciate all the effort submitted by the airline"
Cons: "may be the free shop the turkish items was not to the same level as in local market"

Cons: "Flight was.cancelled.because.of snow in.Istanbul. Fine, that happens, but only solution was to park us in a hotel and tell us to wait. I did not see any serious attempt to reroute passengers and l had to buy another ticket in order to be back at work in time."

Cons: "Worst wheel chair service"

Pros: "Very good food"
Cons: "Seats are a bit crowded, especially when declined"

Pros: "Fine experience except that leg room is awful."

Pros: "Appreciated the lights being dimmed, to make it more restful."
Cons: "Would have enjoyed ice with the juice, or colder beverages."

Pros: "very nice and friendly cabin crew that gives a great service. many new movies , music.. etc..very good entertainment! the seats are comfortable. the food was taisty"
Cons: "the bording took too long"

Pros: "There was upgrade special on our outbound flight at check in which we took advantage of so we were in business class flight from SFO to Istanbul. That was awesome experience - very comfortable fully reclining seats, gourmet food and drinks, impeccable service, wide entertainment selection, etc. Even on the shorter leg flights we took (i.e. Istanbul to Rome and Dubrovnik to Istanbul) they served food (light snack). We flew economy from Istanbul back to SFO but got exit row seats so plenty of leg room and seats reclined good amount. Again, great service, food and entertainment. All the flights we had on our itinerary were newer planes. Turkish Airlines is so much better than American airlines!"

Pros: "Even though this was a short flight, we were served a full meal! Crew made us very comfortable."
Cons: "We had a 5hr wait at the airport for our next flight. I wish we could have connected on an earlier flight."

Pros: "Everything, Turkish is great."

Pros: "Choice of in-flight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding process in BKK was haphazard due to non-calling to board by Group number."

Pros: "Very pleased with the entertainment on board, the crews was very helpful and efficent"
Cons: "my meal from BKK to Istanbul was served cold ( eggs and spinach ) they forgot to heat it up."

Pros: "TV accessories - socks, blanket"

Pros: "Everything was great!"

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: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"

Cons: "Just as bad as it was from Rome to Istanbul"

Pros: "For such a long flight, I appreciate the airline's consistent service and determination to make sure everything was pleasant as possible. By the way, it was an 11 hour flight to Atlanta. I have no regrets on choosing Turkish airlines for my trip and I look forward to my remaining trips with this airline."
Cons: "I do not believe it was the fault of the airline, but I was unable to access Wi-Fi at Ataturk Intl. Airport."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Boarding could be better organized"

Cons: "Too short a connection between flights. Missed connection. No priority for those with connecting flights. No customer service to ensure passengers know which gates to go through and if passenger has chance of making flight. No recognition of time it takes to get through customs and security to make connecting flight. Actually any semblance of customer service was lacking for passengers to make connecting flights."

Pros: "The flight was quite comfortable."
Cons: "I find it hard work doing such long flights these days."

Pros: "Confort"
Cons: "The crew and the food, specially the food."

Pros: "Small plane, decent space, short flight."
Cons: "Legroom."

Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"

Pros: "The crew were really friendly and made sure we were looked after."

Pros: "It was not immediately apparent that boarding was in a completely different terminal which was accessible by train, so this lack of info could have cost me arriving in good time as I thought I had sufficient time. I aldo found ground staff at the customer service desk very unsympathetic and unhelpful when I asked for assistance on grounds of ill health. They were quite condescending ."
Cons: "Ground staff poor customer service"

Cons: "I had ordered pre flight online duty free shopping. Got a confirmation e-mail telling me that articles were reserved for me and I should approach crew members on board for the articles I had reserved. Reality however was that my pre ordered articles were not registered in their system :-("

Cons: "Fight could have been on time! It was over 45 minutes late, because of the crew"

Cons: "Good food, on time and semi comfortable seats"

Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."

Cons: "Food need be much better"

Cons: "The temperature was too warm. With a full plane there is a need for more air circulation. The selection of movies was old, there weren’t enough new movies."

Pros: "Flight info from Kayak was excellent and up-to-date, more so than the airlines."

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

Pros: "Tout était impeccable."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "I was allergic to ingredients in the in-flight meal. There were no additional options left by the time food got to me. The crew was indifferent about my allergy and seemed offended when I returned the food uneaten."

Pros: "Excellent crew. Great entertainment options."

Pros: "All aspects except for boarding and transferring ticket..."
Cons: "Lack of Lufthansa staff at check-in. Lufthansa tickets are non-transferable."

Pros: "A regular predictable LH flightqq"

Pros: "Everything was great. The crew couldn’t have been more friendly or accommodating. It was a very enjoyable experience."

Cons: "At the gates they said that nobody could bring more than one piece of carry-on items Dash completely catching Everyone by surprise. They took a backpack from me, and it has now been lost."

Pros: "Crew is very friendly, seats are extremely comfortable and good room overall, comfortable flight."
Cons: "Hi, To be honest, it was embarrassing to serve that dish on such a major airline. Chicken with bbq sauce and corn or something like that. Was distasteful I couldn’t take more than 2 small bites."

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

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and went above and beyond."
Cons: "The boarding process is unorganized as passengers do not board by aisles...just pushing and shoving"

Pros: "Comfortable for a short flight. On time."
Cons: "Had to go through security and passport control a second time made the 1 hour connection stressful"

Cons: "Not enough room. Aisle seat was too narrow and short."

Pros: "The attention to service. We traveled with an infant and Lufthansa staff was more helpful and attentive than any other airline we've filed with our infant in the past."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was excellent from the curteous flight crew to the accommodations to the meals. I will fly Lufthansa again!"

Pros: "the seats are comfortable, food is good and service is better than most"
Cons: "That it took a while to get on plane because of security but thats how it goes"

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

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

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

Cons: "My entertainment screen did not work even after being reset twice. And the flight was too full to move."

Cons: "huge plane, no space. painful."

Pros: "exception service! Night and day difference from my flight with United. THANK YOU!!!"

Pros: "Very professional, attentive, friendly flight attendants, clean aircraft (even the restrooms), surprisingly good food. I appreciate the complimentary wine, beer and after meal cordials. Boarding was quick, easy and on time."
Cons: "Economy seat room feels even smaller which, I guess, is to be expected. My husband is 6'2' and his knees touched the seat in front of him. When the person in front leans their seat back it is very claustrophobic. Over all an excellent flight though."

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

Pros: "Everything was wonderful. I'll definitely choose Lufthansa again!"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Given free upgrade. Efficient services."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and the plane was somewhat new."
Cons: "Boarding is always a cluster (it is a mad dash for the gate no matter what section is called) Absolutely no entertainment was offered. Passengers' seats in front of you can almost be reclined into your lap, forcing you to recline your sit into someone else's lap to have some room."

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: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Waiting time between connecting flight 4.5 hrs"

Pros: "Additional legroom"
Cons: "Business class should offer more in seat than empty seat between two coach seats"

Pros: "The chairs were the comfiest I've ever flown in!! Amazing"

Cons: "AUSTRIA AIRLINES, (YOUR OTHER COMPANY), WENT THRU MY BAG IN O'HARE, FLIGHT 66 TO VIENNA. THEY TOOK OUT ALL OF MY HOUSE, AND CAR KEYS , AND MY REMOTE CONTROL FOR MY PICKUP, (ALL ON ONE RING), AND DID N O T PUT THEM BACK INTO MY BAG. I WILL N E V E R FLY AUSTRIA AIRLINES, OR LUFTHANSA AGAIN! I SENT AN EMAIL TO YOUR CUSTOMER RELATIONS DEPT...customer.services@lufthansa 3 times and they failed delivery."

Cons: "The descent was very uneven, with long sudden drops in altitude. The touchdown was hard enough, but much worse was the apparent loss of control immediately afterward as the plane swerved left and right for 5-10 sec. No acknowledgement or explanation was given by the crew."

Pros: "I've just started using Lufthansa because I've been happy with all aspects of the trip -- on-time departure, pleasure staff onboard, and good food."
