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: "I appreciated the attention to detail along with the entertainment. The Salmon was great along with the refreshments."
Pros: "I love that I got a cute little bag filled with things like socks, eyemask, and ear plugs. Its just the little extra things that made it better"

Pros: "The great customer service once on board was outstanding... great amenities and prompt return of requests..."
Cons: "The Airline Denied my WhiteWater Kayak then Allowed 12 hours later 2 Kayaks of equal proportions. My whole trip was focused on having this kayak.. it forced our trip into confined abilities and completely took away from my overall experience in Africa... I want a free flight with a boat.. I can give you flight details of my last flight takken .. What do you say..?"
Pros: "Delay in first flight which caused me a day. But accommodation provided at Dubai is fantastic. Entertainment system not worked in flight and WiFi Audi not worked."
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "First class on Emirates is a perfect flying experience!"
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: "It is about 14 hour long flight. There should be m more number of meals served. Pizza served as As snack was cheap, ok but not that great, should have been a meal (lunch or dinner)"
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: "Seat was ok."
Cons: "There was no food served at all! Just a plastic water container for the entire flight. Could’ve served a snack or two like JetBlue does in USA"

Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"
Cons: "The crew in Berlin gave me the last seat at the airplane which does not recline. I find this to be very unprofessional especially for some with Gold Status with Star Alliance. In addition, they assured me an aisle seat in the connecting flight, which was not the case, it was a middle seat. I felt cheated by the desk crew in Berlin."
Pros: "This flight on an A330 had big touch screens which worked well. Seats were spaced apart with good room and were fairly comfortable. Nice, friendly crew."

Pros: "The service is excellent and they do everything in their control to make a long flight comfortable."
Cons: "It's a long flight - nothing you do about that."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and they gave us direct flight back to Singapore in premium economy seats."
Cons: "This is our second experience of flights being cancelled via Turkish Airlines. Very disappointing customer care when flights get cancelled. Staff totally unprepared and untrained for such situations. We waited around for 6 hours before finding out on our own, that the flight was cancelled. The notice was not shown on the board. In all waited around at the airport for more than 10 hours before we were finally carted off to a small hotel near by at 1230am in the morning. Very little to no information given throughout the whole process, stranded with parched throats, no luggage, clean clothes or toothbrush."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. The disorganization and misinformation was unprecedented. I have been traveling for 30 years and tried almost all airlines, but the Turkish Airline office at Cairo Airport ranked the poorest I have ever seen. The disorganization was as if they do not know what to do. First they said the plane arrived late, then they said there was a bird hitting the engine. The excuses were so laughable beyond belief."
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"
Pros: "We liked how easy it was for English speakers - English announcements, English-speaking attendants, good signage at airports."
Cons: "Our luggage did not transfer in Istanbul (1 hour layover) and didn't arrive in Warsaw for nearly 48 hours (actually 45 hours)."
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: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Pros: "Never again shame Missed connexion in Istanbul no service awful and lack of respect no more such a disaster no Thanx 3rd and last time"
Pros: "Excellent service, food, entertainment & Aircraft! Need quicker updates in monitors - seem to redundant"
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"

Pros: "Pleasant crew, great quality service, good food."
Cons: "Comfort was not the greatest. Felt smaller than other airlines but trip was 11 hours long so it wasn't comfortable."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "Flight took off on time"
Cons: "The stewardesses could use some additional training on service with a smile"

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "I am a vegetarian. I did forget to order vegetarian meal. When I said this at lunch time the response was "sorry, we do not have any extra vegetarian food." Not even attempting to see if they can substitute with any fruits, chocolates etc."

Pros: "Departed on time, smooth sailing."

Cons: "Inside the plane everything was great and the floght atendants were very nice, however in check in I was teated very poorly"
Cons: "When we checked in, we were told we didn't have seats because the plane was overbooked. We waited at the gate for information. The attendants were curt and not helpful, they told us they had no information. After the plane was boarded, we were finally given tickets with seats and rushed onto the plane. When we arrived at the Sarajevo airport, our luggage and the luggage of many passengers did not arrive! We waited in a line for 1.5 hours to put in a claim for our suitcases. It was not a good experience."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew, easy flight, on time arrival"
Pros: "The seats were very nice, and I found it very pleasing that everything was colour coordinated. (the small details in red and the rest in gray). The flight attendants were so happy and upbeat, it lifted your mood as well! I believe that we left a few minutes early, as boarding was completed early. And thefood? Mind-blowing for airplane food. I really enjoyed this flight."
Cons: "There wasn’t much I didn’t like about the flight. Sometimes the announcements were very slightly difficult to hear (accents and whatnot,) but you could still tell what they were saying."
Pros: "This is always a pleasant airline to travel with."
Cons: "I felt like the airlines deliberately cheated me. I purchased a flight that was listed as "economy" , which means I am authorized one suitcase. When I got to checkout they said I had pay for the suitcase. Turns out my flight was economy 'light' flight and I had to go the Austrian airlines desk and pay euro 40 for my suitcase. Wish that would have been clear when I purchased the ticket. Also there is no clear info on what the cost is for your bag at what point in the check-in process."
Pros: "I never try Austrian airlines because this trip was my first trip with them and I'll say that it's one of the best trips I ever had the airport at Vienna it's very small and easy to go anywhere you want and it's super clean and the stuff at the airport are very helpful and they all speak English and I was able to get a hotel room with walking destination from the airport and it was a very good experience overall I'll definitely recommend to anyone and I'll definitely keep them on my top list"
Pros: "Medical help"
Pros: "next leg of journey- was delayed three hours and NO one was able to reschedule flights"
Cons: "That flight was delayed for three hours! Causing me not to be able to make connecting flight. No help in Vienna."
Pros: "Very pleasant staff on the plane and in the airport. Economy Seats are more comfortable than some other airlines. Food is good."
Cons: "Firstly . The crew were rude ! They did not even response when were calling them from the seat . The only way to talk to them is to find them at the end of the plane ( where they been chating with each other ) Secondly . The amount of snacks was limited where’s in Turkish airlines it’s unlimited and you can choose different sandwiches whereas in Austrian airilines can offer biscuits and Cookies ;( Thirdly . We are living in 21 century and most transatlantic airlines have WiFi ! Where’s Austrian did not have it!"

I have to wait 1 hour and 30 minutes to fine my bags . I went back and forth from terminal 1 and 4 many times.The changed my flight to turkey airlines and I wait 9 more hours at airport to check in again. Terrible experience ☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️"
Cons: "no entertainment at all Chairs are not comfortable at all no cushions to ease the back pains"
Pros: "This isn't really the flight, but see below for lack of personnel at Vienna airport to help locate gates after our flight arrived very delayed. I was running with a cane, and getting very upset when an airport employee with a cart asked if he could help. He took me to the gate I thought was for my flight, but it was for a DIFFERENT flight to Zurich. He calmed me down and drove me to the correct gate, talking the agent there to make sure it was the right one before he left me there. I wish I had time to get his name because he was very kind and helpful and I don't know what I would have done without him - wouldn't have made the flight, that's for sure. (He was in vicinity of gates F 3 - 13 on Sunday June 11 approximately 5:15 - 5:30pm Vienna time, if anyone wants to know)"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed almost one hour. Even though I had only one hour between flights, I was told (in Split) that all flights would be delayed, so no worries. On the plane, they gave information for some flights; for the rest of us they just said, go to your gate (for connecting flight) as quickly as possible. Flight landed at 5:05pm. When I walked out of plane (I was using a cane; recovering from broken ankle so have some trouble walking distances), there was no board with flight info, just immigration. Finally I saw a flight board, and had 10-15 minutes walk still. Also, signage wasn't great. I called after an Austrian Airline flight attendant who was also leaving, but she never heard me. Finally I found the right direction, still had security to go through. I was running with the cane (not good for my ankle). Essentially there was no help. Until a man driiving one of those carts helped me - I write about him above in what I liked about the flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were beautiful"
Pros: "The service was good, everyone from the staff extremely friendly and overall the flight was very quick."

Pros: "Staff was friendly and the flight was pleasant."
Pros: "that everything was in order - alles in ordnung, without much fuss. short flight, no time to get dissapointments, but I did not expect some anyway."
Cons: "The delay in take-off"
Pros: ".The crew was pleasant"
Cons: "The flight attendants did a satisfactory job of distributing meals and snacks only if you were awake during their service round. I was resting on one occasion and missed the snack. I was total ignored when I asked for a serving. The boarding process was disorganized and the flight was delayed about an hour. Seat way too small for transatlantic. I weight 62kg and was sitting in a middle seat. Next time I'll have to get an upgrade."
Pros: "Most things were OK"
Cons: "Except a crying baby near me, during first half of the flight"
Cons: "One flight was cancelled resulting in a 6 hour wait, the second flight was 2 hours late. Meat meals ran out quick resulting in a vegetarian only option for a lot of passengers"

Cons: "Shuttle bus from the terminal took awhile to leave to the plane. No air conditioning to the shuttle. Very hot. Was uncomfortable."

Cons: "The entertainment wasn't great compared to most international flights."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and the crew was nice and efficient. My legs did not cramp up on the long flight. Good job."
Cons: "My experience at Vienna airport was HORRIBLE. No jet bridge -- stairs to walk onto the tarmac. Board a crowded bus to get to the terminal. The terminal was a nightmare...up the stairs, down the stairs, walking forever like a mouse in a maze. Very inefficient and crowded conditions at the gate for boarding. Not enough information as to what's happening. I felt like a sardine in a can! The personnel at the gate were not at all friendly or forthcoming with information."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants had an attitude problem, which put a wrench in my otherwise pleasant flight."

Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Pros: "Clean, smooth and on time"
Pros: "The air hostesses seem to be too tired. Seems like they really did not care much. There was someone who was using the skype in ipad long after we were requested to turn off all electronic devices. She was talking really loudly. They went back and forth without saying anything. I finally had to remind the lady. It is odd for passengers to ask someone to comply with rules. I think it was United flight."
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "I am vegeterian and they served me meat twice. At the first time they forgot to serve me food while I was at the restroom. It took me a while to reach their attention and I started my meal when everyone finished."

Cons: "Seat disconfort"

I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."

Cons: "The food was terrible, wifi was extremely expensive (Delta had free messaging over their wifi)"
Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Pros: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."
Cons: "With skyteam elite status cannot select free upgrade from economy to premium economy unless it is 30hrs before boarding for this code share which is actually a KLM flight"
Pros: "If you would like to learn more you can call me 628.600.8825 Very dissapointed"
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Cons: "The flight was very delayed. We sat on the floor because there was not enough seating. We eventually had to squeeze into buses and drive around the tarmac to find a plane. We lost 5 bags in the process but eventually got them 2 days after arrival. the bags did not show up when we originally were told they would."
Pros: "Overall, good flight"
Cons: "Excellent flight."
Cons: "Service and amenities very poor."
Pros: "Very nice crew flight all was amazing"
Cons: "Hi I ordered a flight at the Kayak site with a suitcase. And when I got to the talk they told me you had to pay for the $ 70 suitcase. When I bought the flight ticket on the site I paid for a suitcase but at the desk they did not see it and I bought to pay again"
Pros: "pleasant seats, friendly staff"
Cons: "security checking in airport"
Pros: "Upgraded to business-quantum difference from economy!!! Won’t ever fly economy with El Al but will in business class"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Everything was on time"

Pros: "All was cool!"
Cons: "All was ok, flight was a bit late, but fine"
Pros: "The flight was an hour delay, they change the airplane to an old one that didn't have tv working and ask a few time for an I pad and didn't get any"
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Old plane, crowded with no space for handbag because of other passengers' carry on."
Pros: "The people the service best airline"
Pros: "The crew and organization were good overall."
Cons: "Too many kids shouting, people walking on the isles like its a public street.. Poor entertainment, old plane."
Pros: "The crew was great! Super nice and helpful"
Cons: "Almost 12 hour flight with 2 hour delay. Plane interior was outdated. Not one TV monitor worked, a total disgrace. Should have given bottled water to everyone while we had a two hour delay. Did get served fluids in 4 ounce cups no ice. Felt like I went on easy jet but had to pay $1300. No leg room, when the guy in front leaned back ,his chair was touching my knees and I am only 5'4."
Pros: "All was fine"
Pros: "Boarded quick"
Cons: "Waited one hour in line to check my Bag. Sat in the back of the plane smelled like the bathroom. The tv wasn't working and I asked five people to fix it after asking so many people and there could fix it they eventually gave me an Ipad which was halfway through the flight. I tried to watch a movie but couldn't finish because they took it away so quickly. I was in such a rush to get out of the plane I forgot a bottle of vadka I had bought in duty free."
Pros: "Attentive crew"
Cons: "Leaving late"
Cons: "To pay extra for the hand bag = $80"
Cons: "No service on flight. Israeli disregard and stupidity.. fly Swiss zlufthsnsa or British Air and learn what your company fails to do."
Cons: "They did not let my dougther get in to the plan because they said she did not had ticket to come back and she did had for aug 10 She lost the flight and force us to buy a new one for Sunday"
Pros: "The food was good and the crew on board was pretty good."
Cons: "I am always treated like I'm a bad person since I'm not Jewish. However, this time I was expecting it, so I wasn't surprised. However, the planes are SUPER out of date and there were only a few channels and on the way to Israel most of them were in hebrew. For a 12 hour flight on the way back, there wasn't really anything to do since the 4 movies they had just kept repeating themselves and I didn't really like 2 of them."
Cons: "media did not work ."
Cons: "was hot (poor air conditioning) very noisy including staff especially during duty free sale"
Cons: "Lowest expectations"
Pros: "20 Years I avoided this airline due to lousy service. the team on this flight and previous one from Tel aviv to BCN were A OK"
Cons: "Not enough blankets on return flight"
Pros: "Received water during the flight. Arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "Upon arrival to the airport, I was pressurized by the "UP" check-in desk staff to send my carry-on to the plane's hold because "the flight is packed and we prefer that you do so". I didn't argue, but this just gives an overall bad impression and certainly does not shed positive light on the company's competence and professionalism. The flight itself was delayed because of insufficient carry-on space in the upper compartments - carry-ons had to be taken off to the hold - something that created a noticeable delay, add to that the dismay of many irked passengers and the expected complaining and hopeless pleas to the flight attendants. The plane took off 20+ minutes late. The fact that this is "low cost" is no justification at all for such a chaos."
Cons: "Boarding was late and sloppy Crew was scarce and non attentive. I had my flight attendant light on for almost 2 hours. No one came The plane was dirty and over crowded The entertainment didn't work. The food was mediocre"
Cons: "I made miscalculation.I thought I would save money but when I bought baggage, it was exactly the price I would have paid on another flight without having to stay in Kiev. In general this flight was just normal,as compared to the flight Tel Aviv Kiev on April 9,which was awful: I was sitting near emergency exit on a very uncomfortable seat.After the flight I was sick. Besides,on the flight there was a group of people who made a lot of noise and littered all over the plane,but nobody of the crew said anything to them."
Cons: "We were not given any hints beforehand, that we will pay DOUBLE the price of the tickets , just to register and pay for a luggage!!!"
Cons: "Delay over 5 hours the worst trip ever"
Pros: "Price of the flight"
Cons: "They questioned my husband ad nauseum because he "looks" Arab. He is from Puerto Rico. They kept asking about his family, if he was visiting someone he knows in Israel, etc. We were not amused. Finally they let us through and we were able to get on the flight. But it was still annoying."
Cons: "One hour delay"
Pros: "The flight was quick and on time."
Cons: "This is a budget airline subsidiary of ElAl known as UP. You have to pay for your bags, you have to pay to check in at the counter and if you want more than a cup of water you have to pay."
Cons: "My flight was postponed by 1 day"
Pros: "Чёткости процесса. Все можно было найти в интернете. Постоянно дублировать информация на почту и в телефон"
Cons: "В Борис поле и БенГурионе были очереди. Но это не проблемы Эль Аля"
Cons: "The light was out at my seat, & I couldn't read, & the staff said they couldn't fix it. There was no menu for the tv, & the majority of the movies were in French with Hebrew subtitles, unwatchable for this English-only person. This was a 15 hour flight. They fed us a tiny tasteless breakfast as soon as we got on & brought nothing around for seven hours! Just before they served dinner, I walked back to ask when they were serving & found they had tuna sandwiches in the galley, However, THEY NEVER TOLD ANYONE ABOUT IT!!! I fly to Israel twice a year, & this was my first unpleasant trip with El-Al. I think I deserve compensation. Thank you. Harriet"
Cons: "one and half hour delay!!!"
Cons: "Poor entertainment (small selection, low quality of selection) Cabin was extremely dry; I fly very often (minimum of four flights a year) but I never recall being so thirsty so often as my two flights with El Al this year."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for about one hour."
Cons: "8 kg for carryon is not series. I paid 250$ for the flight. This is non low cost. I should get a check in bag or at least a normal carry on"
Pros: "Not dying"
Cons: "1st flight delayed, malfunction, never took off. Secons flight had malfunction, made the evening news with emergency landing. Reached Kiev on 3rd attempt"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding, chaotic service, noisy flight. Don't take a tlv1nyc flight during the day! It's long and boring and uncomfortable. The audio/video is poor."
