Just a hassle since this flight was long and all I wanted to do was get some rest."

It also took 3 hours because of UAE and Qatar :("

Pros: "Aircraft was much better than the flight from US, food was great. The only thing I wished for was more movies."
Cons: "Lack of movies"
Cons: "1. rude staff - i stood in Jburg at the counter for 13 minutes (i checked my clock) while 8 staff ladies spoke among themselves in a myriad of languages. FINALLY one lady asked if i had been helped! I said no and she was clearly less than thrilled to be the one to help with my question. i literally just wanted to ask if my seat assignment was a window, middle or aisle, but it was like i was the bane of her existence and i interrupted their social hour. On my outbound flight (ORD to DOH) I also watched three staff members be beyond rude to guest after guest at the check in counter regarding baggage when they came forward to "re check-in" which was a new requirement for most people. There was a lot of general confusion on behalf of the consumers and the staff was NOT the least bit patient or helpful in explaining what they needed from us or why this flight had different procedures than normal. I still don't know why they were so fussy about baggage and made everyone re check in at the gate in fact. And they didnt do it to my baggage so i have no idea why they were so rude to some and completely left others alone. (didn't seem to have to do with size, carrying of electronics, i don't know?) 2. the physical flight - you changed my original flight time to something that was REALLY close for my connection from DOH to CDG, so you instead bumped me to a later flight without consulting me. it would have caused me to miss a connection flight I booked separately through EasyJet from Pairs to my home airport BIQ. I had to figure that out on my own. RUSH through Doha to make my 35 min connection and barely was allowed to board my onward Paris flight by the Qatar gate staff which was only cutting it close as a result of YOUR changes! Yet i was treated like i was somehow "late" and wouldn't be able to board ??? Again incredibly rude staff. Subsequently you lost my luggage because the connection was too tight. i landed on Friday and it didn't catch up to me until Tuesday. Not one person has said sorry or offered any restitution. And this is honestly what upsets me the most. I doubt anyone even reads this. pathetic. I work for a travel club and since Monday (so in 4 days) I have actively reached out to 4 clients to cancel and re-booked their Qatar airways flight to another carrier to get them to Johannesburg. They will be doing the same safari experience I did, but I will NOT recommend and book my clients on Qatar after my experience."
Pros: "Good crew. Nice plane and amenities."
Cons: "Flight to was canceled due to engine issues. Flight home was canceled due to scheduling error. Issue resolved at check in, but caused stress."
Pros: "Much of your service is excellent!"
Cons: "Although the very well crafted advertisement for Qatar at beginning of watching each movie is partially beautiful, I personally find it a bit offensive as a woman the clear emphasis on "my son, this watch and all that is mine will be yours", my daughter, your highest moment will be to get married. My disturbance with what I experience as sexist, worsened each time I saw this. Luckily I learnt how to fast forward, but the sexism of this left me disturbed. so although in reality much of your service is excellent, this advertising of a sexist world view was too disturbing to ignore. I hope my comments are helpful to you in considering that many women in the world now expect their fathers to consider passing on a fair share of their resources to their daughters as well."
Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."
Pros: "The food was perfect"
Pros: "Qatar Airlines - overall was excellent, having flown many times over the Atlantic and Pacific"
Pros: "Seats were to narrow for a tall person"
Pros: "The plane was neat, clean and the services was world class. I was made to feel at home with service always at my finger tips."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "I have been in qatar airways many a times and they have done an excellent job connecting Kathmandu to outside world. The experience is usually very nice-the plane is in good condition, the fly crew are always smiling and helping, the food and entertainment are great."
Cons: "May be this is one time thing, but the ground crew were terrible, particularly the man who was on the check-in counter. Spoke with a robotic tone and was very rude. Spoke as if he owned the plane and we were asking for a free ride. Very disappointing start to a long journey."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "My seat did not incline"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and I was comfortable"
Cons: "Toilet was a bit messy. Menu can be improved"
Pros: "Can't really remember."
Cons: "Flight time respect. Earlier flights. Charging system for phone or comuperr and if there was internet availability in flight."
Cons: "I have to wait 5 hours for a connection flight. I was not happy with. Other then that I had a great experience with Turkish Air lines"
Cons: "No options to change booking and the one given was absorbant pricing"
Pros: "left on the, arrived on time, crew were friendly and efficient, seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was a bit basic and in-flight entertainment was a bit limited, but on a 2 hour flight not a major problem"
Cons: "No delays would be good"
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Pros: "Smooth from beginning to end Well done !"
Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Cons: "Seats are very tight , cleaning is very bad"
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."
Cons: "Worst customer service."
Pros: "Due to the breakdown in diplomatic relations between the United States and Turkey, we were not able to secure non-immigrant visas to enter Turkey, so we had to cancel our plans to Istanbul. It is a bit of a comfort to note that Turkish Airlines seems likely to refund us the price of our tickets. I appreciate it, because I don't think they are legally obligated, though it is the ethical thing to do."
Cons: "However, even getting our money back on the airline tickets won't reverse the disappointment of going through all of the effort and coordination to plan the trip. I intended to take my nephew to Istanbul, a city I've never been to and always pined to visit, and had encouraged a local friend whose son, close in age to my nephew, is studying music in Istanbul at this time. My nephew is studying in Valencia, and we thought it would be a really fun and memorable experience for them to meet, and maybe they would have decided to do some traveling together in the future or my friend's son could have visited my nephew in Valencia at some point this school year. All these plans went down the drain when we couldn't get visas. We are having to content ourselves with southern Spain instead."
Pros: "Baggage allowance of two 23 kg checked bags each. Meals very good including specially ordered vegan ones."
Cons: "Delays in boarding and takeoff from Istanbul to Boston caused flight to arrive 1 hour late which messed up ground arrangements. This may have been because of new Turkey - USA visa issue which just took effect. Refueling was also late. Note: the Istanbul airport is quite dated; restrooms at airport not very clean."
Cons: "Very bad seats."
Cons: "As well as being bumped to a flight seven hours later because of a late first leg, encouraged to switch to trade with a heavy guy for a middle seat. 9 hours to NY is a long time to lose the who-gets-an-armrest game on both sides."
Pros: "Great service and staff"
Pros: "Prompt, departure"
Cons: "the food"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "liked the staff, and the plane was nice"
Cons: "boarding was a little chaotic, and the plane was so hot. was sitting on tarmac for 40 minutes and it was unbearably hot!"
Cons: "It's 100 degrees in the cabin. No one is communication and we have been waiting for a gate assignment for 2 hours. This flight should be refunded."
Pros: "How cheap it was. Good price. Everything else not so great."
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Cons: "Very poor experience , no clear gate assignment prior to boarding , i missed this flight due to no gate info poping on the monitors. Bad customer experience , No manners no proper English, By Far the worst experience."
Cons: "It was very hot during the entire flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff comfy plane"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Amazing food. Can't believe how good the desserts were. Entertainment also top notch."
Pros: "I liked the connection in Instanbul, we didn't have to walk a lot and we didn't have to go through passport check, the connection was short. The flight to tlv was short and comfortable"
Cons: "I bought new suitcase and it arrived to tlv broken"
Pros: "Food is excellent."
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: "Crew service, food and entertainment. Will fly again with this airline and recommend it to others."
Cons: "The lack of space, how small the seat is. On very long flights gets very uncomfortable."
Pros: "food was amazing"
Pros: "The service in Boston is very bad, they are not helping me, they are wasting my time, I was in the air plane and they told me to pay 80$ so they could take the rest of the luggage. Or they won't take the bag. I use Turkish airline for many years with my family and friends, but now Iam going to ruin your reputation on social media Beacause your disrespect way of dealing with your costumer"
Pros: "It was spacious for being Economy."
Cons: "Flight crew that was assisting on my side was awful. Completely disrespectful and not willing to help or listen. Not to mention, special meal was requested online months in advance yet they didn't have any vegetarian meal left and I was left with eating break and fruit."
Pros: "easy check in"
Cons: "lack of leg room"
Pros: "Good food. I would say there is scope for improvement on wines"
Pros: "Free beer, edible food, free tote bag with earplugs blindfolds and (crappy) ear phones"
Cons: "Very small seats, long layover in airport with minimal entertainment options, security risks of spending layover in terrorist attacked airport, flying from prague we had to fly 3 hours East only to fly 12 hours West...24 hours of travel to fly from eastern Europe is not necessary. Next time I'll pay more and avoid flying through Istanbul."
Pros: "Comfort of the flight"
Cons: "The long layover in Istanbul"
Pros: "Aside from the crew and their patience, nothing"
Cons: "Everything aside from the crew"
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"
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: "The service was good and all attendants were polite"
Cons: "They took so long to take away trash after food/drinks"
Pros: "The friendly atmosphere, and the choice of food and drink."
Cons: "Nothing was wrong"
Pros: "Really comfortable flight! Great selection of entertainment. Meals were delicious, crew was accommodating!"
Pros: "I love flying turkish, Everything was just great. But not the baggage handling service!!!"
Cons: "The baggage handling was Horrible just horrible! my Suitcase came back to me broken! it look like someone grabbed a knife to it and slammed it with a wreaking ball!!! Rips all over it as well the hand rail Wont pullout of its casing!!! It was Perfect when I left my starting destination."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, very crowded flight- no roommate luggage, and the plane was very hot inside."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "Reliable airline."
Cons: "Overly strict on luggage size and weight. I’m talking about 0.1 kg difference. I was attempted twice to check the only small case I have, which is an exact fit to Lufthansa standard. Very annoying. Won’t fly LH again. British Airways is a lot better."
Pros: "Hydration station during the long flight. Leg room adequate."
Cons: "They checked my bag at the gate - despite me traveling all over the world NEVER having to check it - and would not take no for an answer, despite me having a 25 minute connection due to their one hour delay. Once boarded there was an incredible amount of empty overhead bins! Bag didn't make it"
Cons: "Poor customer service, was booked off twice without being informed."
Pros: "Seats were good, flight attendants cordial."
Cons: "It took forever for the passengers to get on the plane and seated for us to take off so we left late. We arrived late in Munich so I had to practically run to my next flight. Thankfully was in the same terminal."
Cons: "Problems when boarding. Some real upset customers at Valencia Airport who had too much baggage. Another proposal: Provide Fanta :-)"
Pros: "crew onboard and food/entertaiment."
Cons: "could do without the delays. transit time was reduced to less than an hour in Frankfurt because flight to Frankfurt was delayed by 45 mins. it is becoming very stressful to transit in FRA every time."
Pros: "Super professional, comfortable and on-time service with both Swiss and Lufthansa."
Cons: "Clear up-front notification about extra charge for first checked bag on both ways of the trip ($60 each). I couldn't find that information at the time of the booking."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Pros: "Clean and comfortable. Good and friendly service."
Cons: "Nothing not to like"
Pros: "Lufthansa is a great airline. My problem is Kayak, who sold the tickets to us."
Cons: "You, Kayak, sold me economy tickets. When I checked in online I saw it for the first time that our tickets were Economy Light. So even though we are Frequent Flyers, we payed $220 for three checkin luggages. I intend to dispute this case."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "This was my first experience flying with Lufthansa airlines and the experience was outstanding from start to finish! This is what flying should be like! Other airlines should do what they do!"
Pros: "Lots of legroom, friendly crew, and they serve sandwiches! Asked for water after takeoff and they gave it to me without hesitation! I would definitely recommend them!"
Cons: "I can’t find anything to complain about."
Pros: "Crew was helpful"
Cons: "The plane was 1 hour late and the plane wasn't even at the gate for its expected departure time. The boarding process was too long and take off took too long, thus causing me to miss my connecting flight. So that I missed my Saturday interview."
Cons: "Very bad food"
Pros: "Crew was kind and friendly. The touch screens were responsive and easy to use."
Cons: "The food was a bit disappointing. It would be great if the bread rolls could be heated up and the pasta dishes be made more interesting."
Pros: "Did not make this flight due to lines at Frankfurt security. Customer service has been awful, had to wait two hours to speak to anyone and ended up purchasing another flight because they sold out of all decent connections."
Cons: "This has been the worst customer service experience of my life. Never flying Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and efficient. Flight was ready to leave on time but was delayed due to security concerns at Sea Tac airport; even though the flight arrived on time."
Cons: "I did not have a problem with anything."
Pros: "The business cabin was excellent for a European airline."
Pros: "Randomly gave me better seats!"
Cons: "Seat in front was broken (did not hold in place reclining) and my seat was broken too. I was able to change seat but 2 seats broken in consecutive rows is not good as it makes you think what else may be broken and what kind of accidents could occur if seats are not even checked by crew."
Cons: "The flight got delayed and it was a nightmare for my handicap old mom."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "Crew greeted every passenger with a smile on entry and exit! So nice. Delicious, large cookie for a short flight."
Cons: "Boarding was poor. Did not board back of aircraft first like Lufthansa does on other flights. Felt sardined almost because of a full flight"
Cons: "We flew economy so didn’t expect much, but these seats were VERY narrow. I usually will tuck my legs up on the seat to sleep. No way, this seat was simply hip width. No room to shift from side to side."
Pros: "departure & arrival on time"
Cons: "The seats are very very uncomfortable I cannot imagine flying more than 2 hours on that plane."
Cons: "I was very irritated and angry about the checking in procedure at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. Lufthansa representatives were extremely slow and inefficient. I already performed the check in online. What is the purpose of online check in if I had to wait in line almost an hour only to drop off my luggage???!! Very unpleasant experience."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "Boarding was a mess- started late which made our departure late. Also though I had booked the ticket with united as a MileagePlus member, I didn’t get priority boarding, not could we pay to upgrade our seats at the gate desk. Overall disappointing experience as a member of one of their affiliate membership programs."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "I had to pay extra because I didn't know that Lufthansa only allows one piece of luggage for international passengers, unlike most of their competition. Cost me $375 extra!!!"
Pros: "Pleasant efficient crew and although we had a late departure the pilot made up the time and we did not miss our connection"
Pros: "once we were allowed on the plane it was good"
Cons: "But the flight got delayed and I missed my connection flight"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "The honesty of the staff and the constant updates"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and overall the flight wasn't comfortable."
Pros: "Efficiency and made sure our luggage made it on our connecting flight"
Cons: "All good no complaints"
Pros: "Ease of boarding. Plenty of luggage space. Friendly and courteous crew"
Cons: "Last snack of ham and cheese was aweful"
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Cons: "Seats recline too much. When the person in front of you reclines his/her seat, you feel like you're in a tunnel with the seat back just inches from your face. However, the flight attendant was very kind and asked passengers to lift seats for the main meal, which was very nice."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. The seats had those "wings" on either side of the head rest to help keep your head from bobbing back and forth. There were a few good movies to watch that were current, but a lot of old movies that we had zero interest in."
Cons: "The flight was considered a Lufthansa flight and had a Lufthansa flight number, but was operated by Air Canada. We could not check in online ahead of time for some reason. When we got to the airport, we tried to check in at the Lufthansa kiosk and check in line, but they told us we had to go to the Air Canada area. The ticketing/check in process was very confusing. As for the food, the chicken "wrap" was not a wrap, and was a weird Hot-Pocket type meal. After each meal, we ended up having to hold our garbage for quite some time which made manuvering in and out of seats a little tricky. I wish the seat cushion had a little more cushion since we were sitting for so long. Also at some point the overhead lights came on and stayed on, which was annoying if you were trying to nap."
Pros: "On time departures/ arrivals.. great friendly and professional cabin crew"
Cons: "That my seat was broken the whole time. I have a spinal injure and need to rotate positions while sitting. My seat was broken and my back hurt badly."
Pros: "The staffing was adequate, the service didn't take inordinate time!"
Cons: "Lufthansa cancelled my flight on November 23rd a few hours prior to departures because their pilots went on a strike. When I called and asked if they would rebook me the lady on the phone said that she could rebook for a trip that had two layovers from 2pm(Prague time) to 8:30pm(NYC time) for the 24th of November (thanksgiving). When I asked her if there was anything else she said that was the soonest flight she could find. When I checked my self I found and booked a flight for the 23rd. When I called back they refused to give me a refund."
Pros: "Thank you so much for having activities for children to keep them entertained."
Pros: "Extremely roomy seats! So glad to have the room after a cramped flight from Europe!"
Pros: "The plan and crew were great"
Cons: "Our bags didnt even leave Detroit and the Spainish bag handling company was horrible. Didnt have luggage for 3 days in Spain. Our bags on the way back didnt make the connection. Whats the deal."
Cons: "No internet available (2020). For the my previous flight, a month ago, was the same problem."
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Pros: "Terrific hot breakfast in bus. class"
Cons: "Window did not darken like the others."
Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Pros: "Fast boarding"

Cons: "Food quality was mediocre for a business class flight."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Moved me up front in the plane so I could make my connection."
Cons: "Not having to walk outside in Edinbur4gh to board the flight."

Pros: "Crew where awesone and the choice of entertainment was fantastic"
Cons: "Seats way to close together"
Cons: "Our lougage did not arrive"

Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"
Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."
Pros: "Nice crew; clean plane; decent dinner"
Cons: "No entertainment system; insufficient knee space"
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."
Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."

Pros: "Consistently high standards"
Pros: "Just great crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable at all and will not book KLM again."
Pros: "The crew came to get me from the arrival gate to get to the departure gate since our plane was delayed. It helped to know that the airline was checking to make sure we made the flight."
Cons: "I did not get my luggage in Nairobi. The delayed flight that was the most likely reason it did not get to the connecting flight to Nairobi."
Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "The flight was great."
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"
Pros: "Easy airport business"
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crew was astounding"
Cons: "This airline charges for everything, and after you pay once, they try to charge you again, and again, and again (four different people tried to charge me 4 different times for my two checked bags). And they lost the record of my payment, so I had to show 4 times the Amex receipt showing that I had paid before. It took 45 minutes and 4 non receptive agents for me to get my luggage checked. British Airways is significantly better."
Pros: "Crew attentive. The delay was due to airport conditions in FCO, cannot be blamed on Air France."
Cons: "Food. For a 2-hour plus flight, from 11am to 1:30pm, we got 20gr pretzel sticks. This is ridiculous. Don't pretend you are not low-cost! Formerly, before the Joon failed (thank God) venture, Air France had real sandwiches around that time of the day on that line."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable."
Cons: "My boyfriend and I were required to gate check our carry-on luggage which required us to go through customs in Paris to get to our bag and re-enter security for our connecting international flight. I am unsure why this was the case as other passengers brought the same size luggage. Very upsetting."
Pros: "The entire experience was amazing that gives me a broader scope to choose from when selecting flights to Europe. The most amazing part was the attentiveness of the staff. Exemplary!!!!!"
Cons: "For me this part is not applicable"
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Food could have been much better in comparison with other airlines."
Pros: "The staff were very helpful and professional. The air hostesses regularly checked if I was ok and showed concern when I wasn’t. They made what seemed a bad situation seem bearable."
Cons: "The food was not very nice and the option I wanted had run out. The entertainment was faulty and had to be reset several times. The comfort was below standard and needs to be improved."
Cons: "Arrived 5 hours late"
Pros: "Short flight so I can't really complain. It was no frills, standard small aircraft with no high tech entertainment system. Seats were fairly comfortable"
Cons: "Long delays to go through security screening and then further delays as the plane was still being fueled at departure time."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "The only thing that I like about the flight was that it was easy to boarding"
Cons: "The food was not heat correctly it was cold and I felt that the crew rush to give out the food. The seats are terrible, if the person in front of you reclines you won’t be able to see the screen if your watching a movie and you will see the top of the persons head."
Pros: "Food and wine was very good. Music selection was excellent."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Pros: "We flew with our special needs child without requesting any particular accommodations except for gluten free meals. The gate staff and flight crew identified him and allowed us special bordering that facilitated the process. That act of kindness is a rare experience on our part. Thank you Air France staff!"
Cons: "We were 2h late"
Pros: "Food, service, comfort"
Cons: "The food was the worst airline food I have ever been served. I could not eat it. This is very disappointing for an airline like AirFrance which usually serves very good meals."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "We got socked with 40 Euro fees for our carry on plus personal item being 2 lbs over. The biggest problem is they were picking and choosing which bags they weighed. 10 people behind us and before us got in without incident. Plane wasn’t even half full so they were deliberately trying to make more $."
Pros: "The airplane have great entertainment system. The cabin crew are very nice."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Very cramped. Poor leg room also with.metal bars under seats that further. Limited foot room. Terrible options in movies."
Pros: "The inflight service"
Cons: "The 3 hours delay"
Pros: "It was on time and the crew was good"
Cons: "The food wasnt upto the mark"
Pros: "Option to upgrade seat which I didn't take but might for outbound red eye flight in future."
Cons: "Faulty toilet meaning longer queues for the loo. Crew were a bit haphazard in serving food and my row was missed out for coffee after dinner."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "It was one problem after another during check in. And it was difficult to find help in English so I couldn't really tell what was going on. In the end I was tucking to get checked in because they were insisting I use a kiosk but I was telling them that the kiosk said to see an attendee. It was not efficient and I felt like a burden asking for help when there was nothing else I could do on my own."
Cons: "Business Passngers have to wait in the same bus to board the flight what is the point then...."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."
Pros: "The fact that the plane made it to SFO"
Cons: "Downgrade without notice or consent separating family. Paid full fare for family to travel business class together. AF without our knowledge downgraded one member, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. They offered no compensation, no apology, and CDG ground crew was terribly rude. All anyone said was, nothing to be done, now please Leave"
Pros: "Disorganised and slow"
Cons: "Couldn't organise a booze up in brewery. Baggage offload took forever"
Cons: "Very warm and stiffy air on board. Need change light. Very sad neon. Probably Boing style."
Pros: "I didn't feel cramped in a Window Seat. Two meals were served during the flight. It was nice to get back to being fed something other than skippy snacks on an airline flight."
Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."
Pros: "Croissants instead of pretzels was a nice change of snack"
Cons: "Computer failure rendered the check in process a total mess. Staff seemed utterly at a loss and also totally unprepared for this very early and very full flight. Most passengers seemed to have multiple bags to check. Since this is a regular flight it was hard to understand why check in staff wandered in late when time was already tight - let alone having a system failure as well to deal with. We were 50 minutes late leaving. This resulted in many of us either missing or having extremely tight (stressful) connections at CDG Paris."
Pros: "Entertainment center is brand new and Cleanliness Crew was ok And yeah there's wine (that way you can get plastered and ignore the uncomfortable seats)"
Cons: "Checking in was ridiculous. They're charging for literally EVERYTHING now. On economy class you have many options: - Normal (free!) "ergonomic" seats: uncomfortable, narrow, really close to the one in front of you. - Normal (exit row): just give up. There's like 6 of these and they're taken immediately. - Normal (middle of the plane): are you kidding me? These are NORMAL seats and you charge an extra €30? - Normal (2 seats per row!): what a bargain. Same crappy seats, but two people instead of three! This is really worth my money. - Upgrade to business! Why are you so poor! AF food went from being the best in international flights to disgusting microwave food (especially vegetarian)."
Pros: "Warm and elegant service"
Cons: "To many announcements on a overnight flight."
Pros: "Boarding and such was straightforward and easy"
Cons: "Everything is uncomfortable"
Pros: "Friendly crew, this is just a shuttle service. Not much to write about"
Cons: "They wouldn't fill my water bottle, gave me two plastic cups instead...."
