Way to narrow, especially if sitting next to a large person. Not nearly enough distance to seat in front of you, can't even bend over to reach some-"
Cons: "thing on the floor. The seats do NOT recline enough to be able to relax & get shuteye. It would have been really nice to have a footrest of some type, even busses have those! I am a small person, 5'1'' and 110 lb. Consider not having such a huge gap between 1st class and economy. Way over crowded."

I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"

Pros: "Fast checkin with Online Checkin. Only had to go to baggage dropoff. Nice onboard service. Like the choice of good entertainment for such short flight. Several options to watch."
Cons: "Flight had some delay. One person on-ground very rude and totally out of line in the way to treat customers. Under no circumstance any airline employee should lecture a passenger about time schedules and such. I had read the rules online and was aware of the timings required if checking in online. I was surprised being accustomed to good service from this airline."
Pros: "Food was really good for airplane food."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline at all in a 14+ hour flight. Didn't see the flight crew often."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "What id isn't like is some people will sleep by the time we reached Dubai we missed some important information about the changes in the gates of next flights , they could have announced it just before landing one more time"
Cons: "Crew were rude, kept knocking customers. no vegan meal No drinks offered for majority of flight poor quality entertainment, screen didn't work properly."
Pros: "Compared to the cattle car feeling of many airlines today, Emirates feels like gracious luxury and hospitality, and that's for economy class. I will try to fly with them as much as I can. First rate experience. Very good ticket price and a convenient non-stop route- unlike some low fares that want to add hours and hours to your travel by routing you through the home country of the airline. Great entertainment choices. Some TV functionality issues for a seatmate, but he was able to change seats. cabin crew was multinational, multilingual, and warm and professional. It reminded me of the way air travel used to be."
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Pros: "I always see the best experience with emirates"
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Cons: "Screaming kids the entire 14 hours. The staff should have at least spoke to the family and kindly asked for them to take care of calming the child down. Instead, he screamed the entire flight and did as he pleased, with no regard to any of the customers on the flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "A380 was superb. Really enjoyed being on-board of that aircraft"
Cons: "Dubai - Cebu leg. They managed to lose my suitcase and my understanding is that was done since the flight was full. I would appreciate if they didn't leave my suitcase in Dubai."
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "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: "Even though I was flying economy, the seats on the A380 were wide and comfortable and the entertainment onboard was very good."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Cons: "Had a tough time to get a replacement ticket."
Pros: "Too cramped -there was no order while boarding -seats were less spacious -Film was of poor quality and i had to switch off -the buttons were less user friendly"
Pros: "Middle seats not booked. Cabin very clean, bathrooms kept tidy throughout trip. Very friendly crew. Appreciated cold drinks and selection of snacks,"
Cons: "Excellent experience during covid times."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "After a very long day .. we slept on that last flight ! ❤️"
Pros: "I appreciate that Delta chooses customer safety over profit by not packing flights and continuing to social distance."
Cons: "Significant delay of departure."
Pros: "Crew was professional and understanding/empathetic given the circumstances. We were delayed 4 hrs."
Cons: "While the weather delay was out of everyone’s control and it was obvious the pilot was doing everything he could to get the pale airborne... i feel their could have been better communication from the ground as to our take off time. They kept changing our time and thus we were trapped on the tarmac for 4 hrs. Had we known, some of us could have gotten off the plane and rerouted so as not to miss our connecting flight. We and others were stuck in Atlanta, had t okay for a hotel....and missed a day of vacation....☹️"
Pros: "Flight was good and crew were good. Nothing very outstanding but by no means a terrible flight."
Cons: "The in flight screens weren't working well."
Pros: "Maria in Winnipeg tried to find me decent connections. She did book me into a hotel in Boston as I missed connection 3 times!!!!"

Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "The crew was light spirited. Took the angst out of the long stressful wait"
Cons: "Punctuality. Flight was 2 hours late"
Cons: "On time flight"
Cons: "Food service Leg room"
Pros: "The crew was okay. Seat was uncomfortable. Fold down table was broken."
Cons: "Delayed several times. switched to a later flight hoping that flight would not be delayed. That flight was delayed. I had to sit on the plane for over an hour before we took off. Didn’t make it to Chattanooga until almost12 am. hoping to fly delta for next trip to Dominican Rep. but now I’m unsure"
Pros: "Afert we have to comeback to the GATE in Atlanta,the next Aiplane was good and the flight was great."
Cons: "Well,the trouble was not the Crew or the Air Steward,but it was something wrong with the start the engine."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "A bit bumpy"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, friendly, and efficient."

Cons: "I checked bag at the gate voluntarily in advance and was able to board zone 1. However, when I got to my destination, I found that a large iten had been removed and was missing. The staff would not help locate or recover it."
Cons: "Need vegetarian meal in first class"

Cons: "Flight delays coming and going. Happens a lot with Delta."
Pros: "Great staff, plenty of room, efficient snack and drink delivery, effluent boarding"
Pros: "Fairbanks airport small and cozy, very easy to hear boarding announcements. There were two seats in our row and behind us that had been assigned to more than one person. The flight attendants were very quick and resourceful in solving the issue to everyone’s satisfaction."
Cons: "I srill dislike the idea of purchasing food and paying baggage fees separately from the tickets. Creates inconvenience as well as at least three separate transactions, increasing your exposure to possible credit card data theft."
Pros: "Clean plane with nice navigable entertainment."
Cons: "Crew was chatty with each other & joking with one another but almost rude about serving us. Ran out of sandwiches for purchase at lunch flight & simply threw snacks at us. Made “ exhausted” comment about getting a lime wedge for a margarita & then went to rear of plane to chat with other flight attendents. Worse, we booked with kayak, but actually the delta/ Aeromexico flight was booked with vayama. When one flight changed departure time, we no longer had our great pre-selected seats & couldn’t check in online. We had to work it out with delta & then aero Mexico t. After 30 min on the phone we got the last 3 bavk row seats near the toilets & cackling, aging flight attendants. No reclining or real food made for a lousy 3 1/2 hr lunch flight. No apologies, smiles of sympathy. Just snacks tossed our way"
Pros: "Snacks and drinks were yummy and very appreciated. Entertainment was great. Tons of shows and movies and all for free. There was also free iMessage only WiFi which was enjoyed while messaging friends and loved ones while in the air."
Cons: "For the amount of passengers boarding, they started the boarding process way too late which resulting in a delay taking off. The entire boarding process felt sloppy, disorganized, and hectic. They allowed passengers to board that were seated at the end of the plane while some 1 was boarding, causing tons of congestion. The boarding process was the slowest I have ever experienced in all the flights I’ve been on. The crew was ok, but slightly snappy/rude like typical New Yorkers. The flight from ft. Lauderdale to New York was much more pleasant."
Pros: "We took off, flew and landed without incident. Crew was polite."
Cons: "Even though we booked months ahead, we weren’t provided seat assignments until we got to the gate. We were put in the very last row with less room than normal and no window."
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Pros: "We have been on 6 flights over the last 8 days, all with Delta and we have already started telling people how wonderful the service was. Sherry on this last flight was amazing, working so hard all by herself as our flight attendant. We were very impressed. And the pilots all came out to say goodbye and thank you. All very nice...esp for me who needed some wheelchair assistance. We will certainly fly with you again in the future."
Cons: "Smaller plane but ok for short flight"
Pros: "Plenty of meals and friendly service"
Cons: "Crowded seating...."
Cons: "I dont like that we wasted 3 hours delay in the fiarst fly, makimg us waste more time at los angeles it was a really nightmare"
Pros: "Fast boarding, we even left early! Very kind crew. Flight was WAY shorter than it said on our itinerary!"
Cons: "No TVs and couldn’t get wifi to work. Small plane, slightly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."
Pros: "We were not happy with our flight my flight got cancelled 3 times I miss work they need to reimburse us and also reimburses the hotel cuz we had to stay at a hotel because they cancelled our flight three times and then our flight that we went out on Monday was late because of a flight attendant arriving late to the hotel to the airport"
Pros: "Crew was top notch as usual."
Cons: "Entertainment screens were tiny. Smaller than a galaxy note screen. Need major upgrades"
Pros: "Modern plane from ATL to BOS. On board games were a fun distraction."
Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."
Pros: "Courtesy seating"
Cons: "I'm not sure what to say about Delta and their maintenance program. On a three part trip, Delta cancelled two of the flights giving maintenance as the reason. So it appears they are flying planes until they breakdown. Besides making me not trust the flight worthiness, the cancelations turned my 8 and a half hour trip into a 25 hour trip forcing me to spend the night in the MEX airport."
Cons: "Considering that we’re in the middle of a pandemic no LH ground staff at Heathrow Airport was leading by example wearing protective equipment such as mask or gloves. Further, I found it inexplicably that almost every seat was taken on this flight. If LH knows that the flight is booked close to capacity I would have expected they do their part and due diligence by swapping to a bigger aircraft to help protect people and their customers, it’s not that they wouldn’t have other aircrafts grounded and ready to go... A reduced beverage service is all you can do, really? LH - very disappointing once again"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "The crew were truly great as I had an extremely difficult flight due to tremendous pain in my knees. Coach economy are way too narrow, even if I paid for preferred seating. A joke. Cldnt move. So uncomfortable."
Cons: "Boardingvwas delayed so we left a good 50 minute late. Ran out of meal choice so we had to eat what they had left which was pasta that was too spicy for me anyway. I was very disappointed bec I preferred chicken but there were none left."
Pros: "Yes super crew and super seat. ( next to empty seat) Nice new plane"
Cons: "This one couldn’t have been better. Plenty of food snacks and drinks"
Pros: "Everything went as expected, very smooth"
Cons: "Lower fare !!"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The food could be better"
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: "Crew and food was good"
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."

Cons: "never got to goddamn frankfurt"
Pros: "Crew friendly"

Cons: "Early boarding and then got yelled at for showing up 3min after official boarding time on ticket. no air vents for each seat. massive heat in airplane while waiting for taxiing"
Cons: "Having to go through passport control and security a second time took too much time for the connection between flights."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "Airplane was clean and comfortable for economy class."
Cons: "Because I felt sick I would probably prefer to pay a little more and upgrade to a better seat if the option was available."
Cons: "Delayed Flights Caused a day layover in Germany. The airline was not able to help in a medical emergency which caused me to have to pay to rebook a flight. Special Meals were only some time of the flights and was served Pork as an only option, my family and I didn't eat anything on a 10-hour flight due to this issue."
Cons: "Same as above"

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 flight was delayed due to air traffic control issues. It didn't make a difference for me but many people missed their connection. However, the crew were all friendly and the Captain was very outgoing and communicative."
Cons: "Late flights are never good."
Pros: "United was operating the flight. They asked for 200 to assign me seat next to the path. I found out in the plane after i got to my middle seat that they gave a good front seat close to the path to somebody who was stand by..... They also stated that they can not check my nags to Sofia since they DO NOT FLY TO SOFIA..."
Cons: "United was operating the flight. They asked for 200 to assign me seat next to the path.

They also stated that they can not check my nags to Sofia since they DO NOT FLY TO SOFIA..."

Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "I would like to commend the crew on this flight for the way they handled a medical emergency during the flight. I thought that the brew reacted and handled this emergency in a calm, professional and dignified manner. Very little information was conveyed to the passengers aside from what was necessary. I thought that was very dignified and respectful of the circumstance.

I would like to say Very Well Done to the crew and airline for the training they received and handled the situation."

Cons: "No choice on food. Bathroom ran out of toilet paper, even tho we had reported that it was getting low."
Pros: "The service was good as they were making up for the entertainment system issues on the plane."
Cons: "Only 3 movies available on the entertainment system. Food on Lufthansa is bad."

Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "Lufthansa gave us the wrong departure time missed our flight and lost 2 days of our vacation.

Pros: "had problems checking in , in that I was charged for a suitcase! I have since checked my paper work and found thad that I had paid for a case! I will follow this up when I return to the UK"
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."
Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."
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: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"
Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Pros: "Service was good"
Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"
Pros: "It was very comfortable"
Cons: "The crew was great"
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."
Pros: "10 hour flight - I was well looked after, regular drinks, the food and snacks were good enough and tasty. The in flight entertainment was good - latest movies and worked a great variety of tv, books and movies. The airplane was modern and comfortable"
Cons: "Terrible moslem food, too much lentil with tasteless chicken"
Pros: "Average service and food quality"
Cons: "Inside the business class cabin Boeing 777 only one toilet facility available. People is queuing."
Pros: "The premium economy- it was the most uncomfortable - tight seats. The back of the seats are not reclining It’s not worth the money you pay for premium services"
Cons: "The premium economy should be eliminated and should be labeled for what it is: couch class with some perks"
Cons: "Comfort plus seats need some work. Very thin padding on a hard seat. The leg rest needs to come up higher so you don’t slide down while semi reclined. Nice compromise between business and coach though."
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Had to use a shoe horn to get into and out of my seat and I'm not a large guy. But really my harsh criticism comes from the loss of my girlfriends luggage. It was left behind in Paris on our way to Casablanca causing us to waste a day in Casablanca traveling back to the airport the grab the bag the next day. And to add injury to insult her bag was left behind in JFK during our transfer for our flight to Seattle. No big deal right, Delta will deliver the bag to our house the next day, wrong, we were told we have to go to the airport ourselves to get the bag."
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Pros: "It was very comfortable and pleasant."
Cons: "Could be a little better the service, the dinner was late"
Cons: "I’m not sure that short-hop flights should serve solid food. The quality invariably disappoints. Otherwise, all is good with this flight."
Pros: "Well trained, professional, highly efficient flight attendant, and what is more important, in good mood during the whole the flight"
Cons: "The mobile application Air France didn't know the city or airport Dubai. Often same thing happens on the android application work Sheremetievo airport in Moscow"
Cons: "The craft is a bit old. Harsh landing."
Pros: "Crew great."
Pros: "Not being charged for my first bag of luggage"
Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "Overhead luggage storage jammed with luggage belonging to someone who was sitting far behind my seat."
Pros: "crew was great, seats were comfortable"
Cons: "departure board listed flight as being boarded and gate closed hour before flight leading to confusion and standing in queue for over an hour, part of food was frozen and inedible, paid for upgraded seat which turned out to be by bathroom smells were as bad as you can imagine"
Pros: "I really liked my seat, but it was one of the only ones that didn't have a USB port."
Cons: "See above. Overall, very nice experience."
Cons: "Check in process running smoothly and better announcement of gate change"
Cons: "Great experience"
Cons: "The food was mediocre. Flying La Compagnie in the past was a much better food experience."
Cons: "make passengers from Nigeria to feel respected and important. Imagine no entertainment in the aircraft in addition to a very poor food."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."
Cons: "Departure delayed, reschedules and then cancelled without any direct notification to us with 2 first class tickets !! If we didn’t have Kayak we would be sitting in the airport !,,"
Pros: "Good quality flight"
Cons: "But delayed and lost baggage"
Pros: "That we were heading home. Nice seats. Good food. Lots of entertainment choices. Power plugs ( USB and European power) were appreciated. Wine as a choice with meal was appreciated and brandy after the meal."
Cons: "Some of the shows and movies were a bit 'trashy'. Long flight. I was in the middle seat next to an inattentive octanegarian who was nice but kept calling the flight crew to fix her mess up of the video system. No air controls on this plane - so it was overly warm. 10 hours of overly warm makes for a stinky passenger. Oof."
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."
Cons: "My luggage was lost in Paris. Now I need to wait still."
Pros: "Food and wine was very good. Music selection was excellent."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Pros: "Modern aircraft with power, big screens etc"
Cons: "Teenage crew, poor service (not even water brought on request, all "self service" at back of flight, and not being allowed a second drink with dinner), poor language skills (crew not very helpful when 2 hour delay meant I could miss connecting flight, suggesting I "walk fast")."
Cons: "Entertainment screen did not work; in neighboring seat it could not be switched off when we wanted to sleep; sourly employees everywhere (re-booking counter an exception); food close not being edible and cold; I forgot my watch on when going through security in the Air France terminal; when I started to say "sorry" I was yelled at by the screener who said that she will do the talking; she sent me back through the scanner twice without my watch, then once more with the carry-on and made sure that I went to the end of a very long line to wait for another screening rather than having me just go through the scanner without my watch. Needless to say, there was nothing else suspicious about me once the watch was removed. Eager to exercise her power, the security person did not seem to consider that she slowed down a long line of people waiting to be screened. I should add that I am 73 yrs old grey haired female who has traveled a lot both for pleasure and business during my entire life, often to some difficult places and that I do not argue with or provoke those in power in a situation like this. The yelling and the sending me repeatedly through the scanner, which did not beep once the watch was removed, was beyond anything I had experienced anywhere else. The sending me to the very end of the line seemed outright spiteful. (I did miss the plane connection.)"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Did not seat together passengers, although booked and checked in at the same time."
Cons: "Security services at Manchester airport...too long and not friendly at all"
Pros: "The crew and flight was faultless"
Cons: "We were not advised of a flight number change or checking in location change. This could have resulted in us missing our flight."
Cons: "It was delayed. I missed my flight. Now I don’t have a bag. I am not sure when I get it back or if I have to go all the way back to the airport"
Cons: "My seat was changed without my permission. Very unprofessional staff at Mumbai airport"
Cons: "There should be more layover time as I almost missed my flight and My luggage was delayed!!"
Pros: "Food was excellent and crew was very nice."
Cons: "Could not check in online before my flight and no zones to board just line up and go apparently."
