Top tips for finding a cheap flight

  • Getting to South Africa will almost certainly involve a layover, which commonly also includes a change in airline. One of the most common (and most affordable) routes to South Africa from the United States is from New York City (JFK Airport) to Johannesburg. This route is nonstop and is operated by South Africa Airways.
  • When booking your flight to South Africa, you’ll have no shortage of airports to choose from. There are more than 15 international airports in South Africa that you can fly to from the United States, with the airports in Johannesburg and Cape Town seeing the most international air traffic.
  • Heading to the Valley of 1,000 hills? This popular attraction is located in the Durban area. To get there, you’ll have to fly into Durban King Shaka International Airport (DUR). Located in the city of La Mercy, the airport is reachable via a layover in Johannesburg.
  • If you’re one of the many tourists heading to South Africa to hike up to Lion’s Head, you’ll have to fly into Cape Town for convenient access. Common layovers between the US and Cape Town include Madrid and Johannesburg.
  • To reach Ballito (nicknamed the Dolphin Coast), your best option is to fly into Durban King Shaka International Airport. Direct flights to this airport aren’t available from the US, with most involving a layover in Johannesburg.

Very Spacious flight you can ask to move where someone is not seated. inflight entertainment was great, and great food! Bathrooms were clean. Service was lovely with members going round taking polaroid photos for memories of a journey. This was my first long haul flight and it went so smoothly thanks to the emirates team.

Very Spacious flight you can ask to move where someone is not seated. inflight entertainment was great, and great food! Bathrooms were clean. Service was lovely with members going round taking polaroid photos for memories of a journey. This was my first long haul flight and it went so smoothly thanks to the emirates team.

The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!

Pros: "Good selection of movies. Lights changing color on ceiling through the flight"
Cons: "Need more water service throughout the flight!! So dehydrated! Couldn't get up and disturb my seatmate, but really needed more water!"
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work properly"

Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"
Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

Cons: "Bathrooms got dirty and filled with trash fast. It was kinda gross"

Cons: "this experience with emirates was super duper bad. I was travelling to India as my dad had passed away that morning on 9/11. Bad service, no attention paid to the flight attendant button, water provided after 45 min....after 2 fligh attendants came by and said they would bring water. i provided verbal feedback and they were extra nice to me then...brought me crackers , chiocolates...etc etc...but it was just to calm me down. I went and got my own food from the kitchen area as I had a splitting headache, I was traveling to india as my dad had passed away on sep 11th morning. They gave me the same dinner mushroom and peas for vegetarian snack. Then they exchanged it after I had waited for so long. IT was just ridiculous servide and"
Pros: "The flight was empty and the luxury to choose your open row of seats"
Pros: "The Captain spoke to us a few times and the crew were absolutely amazing. Best flight Ive ever been on."

Only had fish option for food. I am allergic to fish and there was no veg option

Pros: "Overall experience was good!"
Cons: "Keep the good work up."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Staff are very polite and helpful (ground staff and in the air)."
Cons: "The food was hit and miss. Some of it was good and some of it used ketchup as a sauce. The economy seats have been stripped down to budget airline level padding and the rows seem have been been jammed in a little closer."
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Yes overall probably the best flight to Chennai from DC"
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Pros: "Justfly stoled my money as i booked for seat and paid 30$ And the seat didnt booked I want my money to be returned"
Cons: "I don't understand how this company has a high rating in service. We missed our connection because the plane was delayed and they treated us poorly. How can you have a complimentary lounge for people missing their flight but not allow people in. I guess because we were only economy. When asked could we pay for an upgrade to business class, the attendant responded with "oh, its expensive" I didn't ask how much, I asked if we could. I never felt so insulted. The food was terrible. By the time they got to us, our food was cold and they ran out of the menu item we wanted. I have no intention of flying Qatar again. I will stick with Emirates"
Pros: "The customer service and food were excellent."
Cons: "Next time I will fly business class for more space and comfort."
Cons: "Improve quality of service and cleanliness."
Pros: "The flight attendants were fantastic. They paid attention to every detail and anticipated requests. Always had a smile on their faces."
Cons: "The service and the aircraft with QSuites were superb."
Cons: "The flight got delayed which caused me to miss my connection flight. I was at the gate of my connection flight 5 minutes before the departure, however, they did not let me in. They transferred my flight and now I have to wait 24 hours for the next flight."
Pros: "qatar airways"
Cons: "serving alcohol to passengers more than once is disturbing the passengers on the side"
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Excellent seats..."
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: "Fantastic flight...Qatar’s QSuites are fantastic, very comfortable, Amazon my service from the crew, fantastic entertainment options, and with the privacy of the suite ...very close to first class...in fact it is better than the first products (from a seat perspective) of many other airlines such as United, Delta, Virgin, BA, etc."
Cons: "I wish there were more vegetarian options on the menu"
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "Very unfriendly and non cooperative ground staff. They treat different colored people differently"
Cons: "Staff looks down at Brown skin"
Pros: "Great service and excellent flying!"
Cons: "Food was a bit dry"
Pros: "Great service and great meal options!"
Pros: "Onboard crew pleasant and service efficient as always. Seats more comfortable than other airlines but aisles so narrow EVERYONE bumped me going by for 15 hours."
Cons: "Ground crews remain the downfall of this airline. Long line in Doha to re-clear security on international connection FROM USA! Fastidiously weighing and forcing mutiple repacks of carry-on bags even though well under total limit of checked & carry. (Doha agent told me dfferent rules appied for carrry on 2nd plane even though I asked specifically frm original agent who checked me thru to final dest--insisted I check main carry on even though there turned out to be plenty of overhead room on board). Poor coordination of checkin lines, security lanes, and flow of people -- all fixable with a little forethought, engineering, and better utilization of circulation space -- and much clearer communication!"
Cons: "The seats were cramped"
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: "The in flight service was great.. Crew was excellent."
Pros: "Boarding was very ease and helpful for my family while I was traveling with kids I appreciate that fact that customer service at boarding was reached out to my wife to help and make us feel great thru the process thanks"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "Leg space in economic class is too less. No options in vegetarian food. They don't give you what you want."
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: "Easy boarding. Courteous, helpful and professional crew members."
Cons: "No internet service on long international flight."
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: "Good food, good service and clean planes."
Cons: "They flight was moved up about 1 hr earlier. But no email/SMS/call etc. I totally could have missed the flight as a result! Why would they change it and not let passengers know?"
Pros: "The crew were all lovely + meals were excellent."
Pros: "Spacious air craft with comfortable seats, crew was very friendly , and efficient"
Cons: "Service,"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "The leg space is what got this flight a 3 star."
Pros: "The QA Crew acted with courage during very severe turbulence, continuing to be professional despite injuries"
Cons: "QA HQ did not respond to the emergency with professionalism. They did a decent job w/hotel accommodation but only the hotel reception provided any communication. Only constant complaints led to food being provided at the airport after a 6 hour wait to board. No compensation was offered by QA when we arrived in Doha. Nothing. Exceptionally poor performance by an airline you expect more from."
Pros: "Roomy seats & clean appearance and modern cabin."
Cons: "Boarding would have been improved by utilizing both cabin doors (front & rear). The entertainment system did not work during my 13 hr flight."
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and. Convenient."
Cons: "Seats are pretty cramped, food quality was ok didn't have a lot of variety in inflight movies."
Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. Their customer care is second to none. The food is excellent and i ate throughout my flight."
Cons: "The comfort was a bit below my expectations. Sitting on the seats along the isle was uncomfortable as they are closely placed. There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."
Pros: "A380 - was amazing. Roomy and quite"
Cons: "Our stewardess was not the friendliest!"
Cons: "Too much nonsense with carry on and check in language. I paid for my seat but they changed it for better balance of the plain. Really I weigh 165 lbs. Once the plane reaches altitude they let me take my seat. However the plane was barely occupied and somebody with closer and took my seat."
Pros: "Crew was great, seating comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was great. Phenomenal even."
Cons: "Economy seating, so hard to complain, I got what I paid for, but 1-2” more between seats would have kept my knees out of the lady’s back in the seat in front of me..."
Cons: "Actually making the flight"
Cons: "Movies , Wi-Fi , Live Shows"
Cons: "On time"
Cons: "seat comfort"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and attentive"
Cons: "Leg room on my first flight (longest leg of the trip) was not much and when the person in front of me leaned their chair back, my knees were touching the chair."
Pros: "The crew was great! The entertainment was pretty good too."
Cons: "The cabin was WAY too warm."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew was kind and gracious."
Cons: "Seats were extremely cramped. Once the person in the front reclined their seat it was very difficult to get out of the seat. Also better guidance is needed during boarding. Finally, my hand carry was checked 4 times by 4 different people, which means your staff doesn’t trust their own colleagues."
Pros: "Great staff and air flight attendants"
Pros: "They have a policy of letting kids under 5 board early which was a boon to us! The veggie pasta was really delicious."
Cons: "The delay to fly was the only issue"
Pros: "A very friendly and attentive crew and a decent meal. Comfort is still iffy in coach but better than most American airlines. Good selection of movies to pass the time."
Cons: "Seats in coach are cramped and some have an electrical box under the seat in front of you, so there is no room for your legs or carry on bag. Bathrooms keep getting smaller to jam in more seats."
Pros: "The movies were good, the food was good. Servers were kind and helpful. Clean and overall positive flight."
Cons: "Several delays and gate changes."
Pros: "The food wasn’t bad"
Cons: "Business seats suck"
Cons: "The way the movies, needed extra parts. No touch screen"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled and re-booked today. We’re so frustrated and inconvenience us. Very stressful! Swiss Air notification in email was sent short of notice."
Cons: "I was sitting on seat # 25 A : The distance between the seats in rows # 24 and # 25 was about 6 Inches less than between the other seat rows in front of us and across the isle thus making it VERY uncomfortable when the seat in front was in the sleeping condition. Peter M. Endriss"
Pros: "The line for screening for initial security at Ben Gurion was ridiculously long. Almost one hour in line before we even could be interviewed."
Cons: "Boarding and in-flight experience were excellent."
Pros: "Everything except the seats."
Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."
Pros: "The flight was delayed from Newark to Zurich but they were able to rearrange my connecting flight before landing. The Swiss staff were very courteous and amicable. The food was also tasty."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 85 minutes from Newark to Zurich"
Cons: "Mackenzie Gray/ My flight was cancelled due to bad weather conditions unfortunately. I'm upset that I never received my initinerary for my substitute flight! I tried online and calling the # that was provided no results. I managed to get thru to someone and they told me they would send the info to my email but they never did."
Pros: "Good staff, good boarding, good announcements"
Cons: "The chairs are so small!"
Pros: "Clean, modern plane, friendly and attentive crew"
Cons: "Cramped space in economy!"
Cons: "It was very late, with us on it."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. The crew was very nice and amenities were fine."
Cons: "My luggage was lost. I had to wait in line forever to file a report. Luckily it was sent to my hotel later that evening."
Pros: "Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and the cabin was clean and comfortable. My flight from jfk to Geneva (then Zurich) was cancelled due to weather in Geneva (Swiss 23) so I got upgraded to a delta flight to Brussels then to Zurich Comfort+ !!! Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight from Zurich to Johannesburg: Swiss 288 (airbus a340-300) Sat in the last row of the Swiss air flight, economy, which was okay but our whole row video enternatinment system didn’t work. You’d pick a movie and it wouldn’t play. The games, camera and flight status animation all worked but not the movies. Air hostess tried resetting , still nothing. But it was a great opportunity to have a lovely conversation with my new German Friend Barbara and read my book! More lactose intolerant alternatives for breakfast which had much (cheese, yogurt, croissant) Other than those two , excellent flight. Thank you Swiss!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. They were very efficient and went about their duties without disturbing the passengers."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Best food and attention that I've had on an airline in 20 years. Really. I was telling a friend today, Swiss Air started with drinks, gave us a Parisian baguette sandwich, gave us a healthy breakfast of yoghurt warm croissant butter jam orange juice, drinks again, and several passengers surrounding me got special attention, one woman with a baby, a disabled person, and a teenager that was 6'5" was relaocated by the flight attendant without him even asking to a bulkhead seat for more comfort. You don't see this kind a attention to detail on any US flights or US airlines, so I noticed it. It was as if I was traveling back in the 70's or 80's when Airlines would compete for our dollars with their service. I mentioned to my friend that if I had a choice and Swiss Air was one of the choices, I'd choose Swiss Air over any other airline."
Pros: "Stewards are very kind and friendly unlike those in US flights."
Cons: "None."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable, not the leg room but they just felt a little worn down and tilting forward"
Cons: "My seat did not recline and my tv did not work"
Pros: "The flight attendant told me I had to keep my seat upright throughout dinner so the person behind me could eat. I wanted to sleep and couldn't do so without reclining. The seats are tight but I was in the economy plus section so I thought she should have let me recline instead of physically moving my seat upright. And for someone who cared so much about the seat at dinner no one cared about me the rest of the flight. I slept through breakfast and no one left me a tray even. Plus, I had my seat back the rest of the flight including landing which I didn't realize. Isn't it their job to ensure our seats are in upright positions in case we forget or don't realize? Just a very blasé crew."
Cons: "See above regarding the crew. It's not that big of a deal but I really thought the crew was poor. Flight was short and easy enough though."
Pros: "We liked the chocolates, the little things matter. We liked the timing of the flight."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable and the arm rests did not go all the way up."
Pros: "good food, excellent entertainment selection"
Cons: "late boarding, late take off, missed my connection"
Cons: "Seating and foot space was uncomfortable to me."
Pros: "The crew really went out of their way to accomodate and made sure I found my seat, was entertained and was comfortable throughout my flight."
Cons: "It was delayed a little."
Pros: "Fine"
Cons: "Newark airport is awful. Can't get food, can't get coffee, can't get a newspaper. I would try to avoid it."
Pros: "Great customer service."
Cons: "Breakfast was a strawberry yogurt, orange juice and a croissant. Sugar free options ie. Eggs, rye or whole grain bread are a few examples of sugar free breakfast items that could be provided."
Cons: "On my return journey I was told at check in that there were delays that would mean missing my onward journey from Zurich. I was then rerouted through Istanbul with the promise that I would be well compensated for my troubles. I was told that I would receive a certain amount for every hour I was delayed from my original arrival at end destination. Well I arrived 8 or more hours after I had originally expected (and the reason I booked with Swiss Air was because of the timing and the apparent luxury of the flight). Once I got back home and tried to pursue this amazing compensation I received some of the worst customer service ever and received 0 compensation for the experience. Very disappointed and will never fly swiss airlines again."
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "I have been flying to Asia on Asian airlines and maybe I have become accustomed to flights and crews that know how to manage a long flight. For example: The crew seemed tentative and untrained. Saw the crew once between the meal at beginning and the meal at the end. I wonder where they can hide for so long on a small plane? Too many announcements by the Captain -- shut up and fly the damn plane! Do you think the crew might replenish the toilet paper on an 8 hour flight? on another note: Seat spacing is adjustable - very close seats Overall--- underwhelmed"
Cons: "I had a good seat, the plane was comfortable and the crew was nice"
Cons: "Chrap food"
Pros: "Night flight. Food is fine."
Pros: "Perfect service, on time"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The most racist and unfriendly and uncivilized people ever."

Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Crew, atmosphere, timeliness. I was satisfied overall"
Cons: "Gate number changed couple times before flight departure"
Cons: "Broken monitor and seat"
Pros: "Crew was nice the flight was smooth and comfortable seats."
Pros: "These Comfort+ seats had the most legroom of any airline (Delta, JetBlue, American etc) short of Business class that I can remember in my adult life!"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "Always need more room"
Pros: "NOTHING."
Cons: "Missed the flight due to the sheer unhelpfulness and incompetence of the gate personnel. They would not let me board, since I was about 10 minutes late. THEN THE PLANE WAS DELAYED FOR ABOUT 2 HOURS!!! I was stranded in NY, overnight, and had to pay hundreds of dollars for a train ticket and a cab."
Pros: "Internet access. Waiting area at JFK with charging stations for every seat and a tablet to order food & drink."
Cons: "Give food to passengers"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "It would have been better if the flight wasn’t 3 hours late."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. With the plane full they managed to serve all with smiles on their faces and solved all problems, including cabin luggage problem."
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "Spacing between seats and overhead luggage storage. They ran out of room before the entire plane had boarded"
Pros: "The flight was on time at departure and 30 minutes on arrival."
Cons: "Since I got a good deal on the ticket, my boarding zone was “Basic”. That kind of sucked, but I still could fit bag in the airplane so it all worked out"
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "In flight service was disappointing."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK.Always messy"
Cons: "After a delay of about an hour on a very full flight the gate agent asked for volunteers to check their rollaboard suitcases. The gate agents then allowed those who checked their rollaboards to board before Zone 1,which was fine. However, a bunch of people without gate check stickers on the rollaboards were also allowed to board before Zone 1, which was aggravating. There was a long delay on the tarmac, during which we had to pull back to the gate or to a maintenance area before we finally took off. When we arrived in Vegas there was no gate for us to pull into, which led to another long delay of an already long and delayed flight."
Pros: "Michael was super polite and helpful. i Traveled with my young son and he took such good care of us."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than an hour. My seat's entertainment system was broken, so an 8 hour flight with not much to do other than sleep."
Cons: "The flight from. JFK to Barcelona was delayed as well. Their computers were down in Atlanta. So everyone had to have their name hand typed into a computer when boarding. Then the pilot said that our bags are usually weighed and computerized for even distribution on the plane. That system was also down, so we sat on the runway waiting for that problem to be fixed. When we arrived at Barcelona, I unpacked and discovered a jacket and pants in my luggage were wet. The only place that could have happened was at JfK during their rain storm and the luggage weight issue."
Pros: "very nice and willing stewardesses"
Cons: "tragic little place for legs, lack of space"
Cons: "Paid extra for a seat that didn't have any extra leg room. The entertainment system was broken for the whole plane during the first 2 hours."
Cons: "My daughter was booked on this itinerary and was finishing her last leg of journey. Complete ticket was booked thru Delta Airlines. Her flight from Amsterdam to New York today operated by KLM, was delayed by few minutes. And Delta flight from JFK to Cleveland DL4084 was preponed by airlines. Result was my daughter was not allowed to board the aircraft. Worst was yet to come. Your staff at the gate offered her a flight to Cleveland for next day at 3:30 pm??? Means around 24 hours later. Is this how you behave with a girl of 19 years, asking her to stay at the airport. She was refused Hotel and Lounge stay by your team!!! Is this what you call customer services??? Obscene services is what I would like to term it as!!! My daughter asked them to give this is writing, which was refused to her. Why are your people scared to put it in writing if everything that you are doing is right by the Law??? I was left with no other option but to book her on American Airlines flight today departing at 9 pm to ensure that little girl doesn’t have to spend close to 24 hours at airport by paying $423. Who is going to bear the loss of money and mental torture that your team has given to me and my daughter???? I shall be awaiting your response as to what do you have to say to this pathetic attitude of your team. Rajesh Mendiratta Sent from my iPhone Rajesh"
Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was not acceptable and very disappointed that flight DL391 from SDQ to NY-JFK was delayed till it left at 4:40pm because there were no crew members to bring the aircraft to STO DGO the night before as it is usually done so that the aircraft sleeps over in las Americas. We were at the airport at 4:30am because the flight was scheduled to depart at 6:05am we were lucky to be able to rebook for a flight SDQ-ATL DL576 for the same day hoping to make the connection ATL-IND. Unfotunately that flight was rerouted to Charlotte due to bad weather conditions with a delay of 3 hrs before it landed in ATL thus missing our connection to INDI and had to sleep in ATL and leave the next day to IND thus missing a meeting commitment that we had in IND. We should and expect to be compensated by Delta for this."
Pros: "Food was amazing tasted and seasoned well. Not bland, really good salad and chicken."
Cons: "Delay. (liked kayak delay updates tho!) crew not very attending and it looked like they didnt care. In order to keep folks busy because of the delay. They gave out immigration and customs papers out, but refused to give pen. I literally didn't had one and answer from the crew was like that. " Excuse me do you have a pen by any chance?" . "NO! I dont! asked them" pointing out to other crew members, -this is the best part- the female stewardess had clearly visibly a pen in her front shirt pocket! Sitting around and trying to kill time and no pen still. While busy with food and other stuff, i fell asleep. Then after a while when going to the restroom i asked the male steward if he would have a pen please, he pointed out they dont have any pens. ( please note he marked on his check board, who is getting which meal on the first class)"
Pros: "Very comfortable and didn't feel cramped. Quick flight."
Cons: "No choice in snack and I couldn't eat what I was given. Staff appeared checked out and not bothered. No entertainment but it was a quick flight."
Pros: "Giid free sandwixh. Very good entertainment system. Good seats."
Pros: "After being redirected and behind on travel plans due to weather and missed flights this was a welcomed relief. Everything went as planned and staff was very helpful."
Pros: "Friendly Crew"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Food and movies were good."
Cons: "Didn't leave on time."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants were rude and not very welcoming at all."
Cons: "Price to get a little more space"
Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"
Cons: "I have the worst opinion of the Delta company, when I was flying to Atlanta on October 20 they changed my flight at the last minute I had to leave until my job to take another flight. Just today when returning my suitcase did not arrive they sent it to another destination. I think the company gives very bad service."
Pros: "Free meals and entertainment"
Cons: "Can someone please improve airline food?!"
Pros: "Decent selection of in-flight entertainment. (The entertainment unit was sub-par to allow full enjoyment.)"
Cons: "Older plane had undersized, non-responsive touch displays so passenger behind felt like a woodpecker. Also, retrofitted to provide in-seat power with metal box under seat in front of you makes it very uncomfortable for window passengers who don't have space to stow bag under seat in front of them or for their feet. (Uncomfortable on a long flight.)"
Cons: "Whatever hack airline you are contracting with to do shuttle flights is terrible. Both the flight itself and the customer handling. If I ever see the option "operated by endeavor air" I am avoiding at all costs."
Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."
Cons: "No communication between different parts of the airport; early arrival, over 2 hours getting through baggage claim; good luck rechecking your bag; almost missed flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover. Workers on the ground don't care, or either don't know what's next on the transit through the airport."
Pros: "Some of the ground staff was trying to be helpful."
Cons: "That we had to sleep like homeless people on the floor of JFK airport as the airline was not able to provide for a crew and therefore cancelled the flight. The airline cancelled the flight at 1.30 in the morning so no one was able to get a stay in a hotel not did the airline take any action towards helping the stranded passengers. We were given blankets and pillows. The best thing was the ground staff getting rude after all passengers complaining. They were basically saying we should get stuffed since we were booked for a flight next day same day. This is shameful! Needless to say that I will not fly this airline again!"
Pros: "They did eventually put out some small snacks and drinks (water and regular coke)."
Cons: "Small regional plane that was over 3 hours late in departing NY because of weather issues much earlier in the day. Delta did not permit any re-bookings to other delayed flights that were leaving in the intervening period, even though there were empty seats. Very frustrating."
Pros: "Plane was very clean and flight attendants were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Delta's domestic terminal at JFK is far too crowded, even at 8AM."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Cons: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The WORST experience of my life. My flight was delayed 12 hours overnight due to "weather" and since it was reportedly because of uncontrollable weather delta didn't have to do anything for me so I slept in the JFK airport overnight, they wouldn't even give a $59 pass to their sky miles club for the afternoon. It felt like an easy excuse so they wouldn't have to do anything since there were other airlines still flying out of JFK and to go CLE before my rescheduled flight which makes me believe it wasn't all weather. Since the flight was delayed 12 hours instead of being cancelled they wouldn't let me switch to a different airline either. Then, in the morning when it was rescheduled to it was again delayed because they first couldn't find a captain and then couldn't find a fort mate. We finally took off and arrived in Cleveland only to wait another 30 minutes for a gate and a ground crew that they couldn't find. I will never fly delta again."

I dont know

the food on board.

Cons: "Crew could have been more friendly."
Pros: "Onboard the flight service was fine."
Cons: "The crew at check-in & at boarding checked me in to fly to Tel-Aviv (transiting at Istanbul) without any comment on visa or passport at Washington D.C. In Istanbul, I was not allowed to board on the flight to Tel-Aviv. I was not allowed to stay in Istanbul. Crew (Erin Uler) who stopped me from boarding the flight said he would help, but disappeared. Othes kept sending me back and forth between transfer desk and sales desk with inconsistent advice every time. I had no way out, so decided I will fly to the closest European country. This was after I had been back and forth for 7 hours. I had to pay full for flight to Greece. I asked to be sent back to D.C. they could not even work that out. I have a return ticket to fly back to Washington D.C. with Turkish Airline on 1 Jan and they said they will need to re-ticket my paid return flight as well. Turkish airline crew did not would not help me fix my return flight back to D.C. They have asked me to contact the agent ( Kayak). Now I am stuck in Athens, a country I have never visited nor planned to. My tours & accommodation, all paid for in Israel, I have lost. I had a tour fully paid in Israel. I have no ticket to return back to D.C. even though I paid for ticket with cancellation insurance when I bought the ticket. The advice between Turkish crew who checked my passport (official) while I was flying out of D.C. vs the Turkish crew who stopped me from boarding was inconsistent. If I had been stopped in D.C. I wouldn't have had to face the events that followed. Now I have lost my tours, hotel in Israel. I had to pay extra for flight to Athens and I am paying for hotel and sundry in Athens while waiting for flight out. Turkish crew at Istanbul were not only unhelpful but rude and inconsistent. While I was waiting for 8 hours for a firm information, shouting matches between Turkish crew and customers went on at least a dozen times. Inconsistent information from Turkish staff has led me to be currently stuck in Athens. I am waiting for a way back to D.C. There should be a rule that fines an airline if they board people without accurate visa papers and they fail to check it. There should also be a fine to the airline if they stop people from boarding at a transit airport leaving passanger stranded with nowhere to go or return. I ask this issue to be looked at, as I am currently stuck in Athens. I need a ticket to go back to D.C."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Nothing. I guess the fact that I made it to Israel?"
Cons: "Your incompetent agents messed up my reservation multiple times. They called my home and emailed asking for a payment, even though my client bought the ticket for me. Then, when I was checking in I realized my name was wrong even though my client has a document that proves she typed the right name. Finally, and AGAIN KAYAK, I arrive at the airport and Turkish Air says the ticket is booked but not ticked. So I had to jump on a 30min wait over the phone trying to solve issue after issue. Never doing business again with Kayak."
Pros: "The crew were all very polite and friendly."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about!"
Pros: "Boarding was on time and We arrived on time."
Cons: "Plane was smaller than normally flown. No room at all. 2-4-2 seat rows."
Pros: "Easy booking on Kayak! Good service overall."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, it was really hot! Not enough air conditioners."
Pros: "I had empty seats next to me"
Cons: "The guy that checked me in was very rude and wasn’t smiling at all and then he showed my passport picture to his colleague and they both started laughing. I was trying to use the restroom on the plane but there was a person in there for a long time; I waited outside patiently and then when I got in I brushed my teeth and used the toilet. It didn’t take me that long but the flight attendant knocked hard on the door but she didn’t do that for me with the other guy. I didn’t feel welcomed at all from the crew honestly."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment options!"
Cons: "The crew seemed to be pretty busy"
Cons: "Late into the flight there appeared to be a medical emergency taking place just a few rows ahead of me. No announcement was made; it was as though we were expected to ignore the situation. But with the lights in the cabin turned on, a small crowd gathered, and the passenger being vocal in his distress .. . a brief announcement would have been nice: Situation under control, no need to worry, flight will continue as scheduled. The passenger had a relapse a few hours later - again no acknowledgement from the crew to reassure those of us who could hear his cries of distress."
Pros: "Excellent service with comfort"
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Very small space"

Pros: "Service is good as well as food."
Cons: "The space. The transatlantic leg was awful because the space was really limited. From IST to my final destination the leg room increased"
Pros: "Offered us a free meal for the poor service."
Cons: "Old, uncomfortable plane. Took off 30-40 minutes late. Poor quality food. Circled Istanbul airport for 15 minutes without any communication. Flight arrived late, but no info. on connecting flights provided. At least eight passengers ran through the Istanbul airport to catch the connecting flight to Rome and, despite the fact that the plane was still at the gate, the gate staff person would not allow any of us on the flight. Customer service staff were unhelpful and had a negative attitude. The transfer were helpful."
Pros: "Service was exceelent and all crew staff were professional and friendly and courteous."
Cons: "the employees at the check in booth were so rude and unhelpful. I needed a wheelchair because I had a very bad backache, but they refused to help me and they made me wait standing up in line for over 2 hours. It was a very painful experience."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines remains my favorite - boarding process is organized, seats are comfortable, food is good, and crew is friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"

Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "Easy checking reasonable wait."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment center and options. Loved the frequency of beverage service. The slippers and eye cover for sleeping."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great"
Pros: "I liked everything"
Cons: "I booked my flight with Turkish Airlines for June 28th at 11:05 pm. A few hours before my flight, there were bombings in the airport in Istanbul, which was where I was flying into. I tried for hours to contact Turkish Airlines and their phone was disconnected. I could not reach anyone to try to re-schedule a new flight or to ask if the flight was going to be re-directed. I received no information and ended up having to book a new flight for the next day. After my flight had already left Turkish Airlines posted on their website an alert. I am shocked that it took so long to post any information and I am very upset that I was unable to reach customer service. I will NOT be choosing this airline to fly on again."
Pros: "Excellent service and food."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Service was outstanding!"
Cons: "I have no complaints!"
Pros: "The company gave us a hotel for the layover."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Rude stewardess"
Pros: "This was my first time flying with Turkish Airlines, and I had a great experience. I travel internationally a lot and it has been by far the best airline I have been on. I love flights that give you a hot towel when you arrive, so that was a big plus in my book. The flight stewards were so helpful both on and off the flight. The food was delicious. Movie selections were freat ad well."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Delays, both at Dulles, as well as in Istanbul."
Pros: "Other than what I've mentioned below, everything was great."

Pros: "The flight was smooth, the crew was great, as was the food. I am never comfortable sitting on a plane for 9 hours. The overall experience was very positive."
Cons: "Crsmp seating,"
