Cons: "Wifi shows up and u get connected but does not work"

Pros: "I cancelled flight and you charged full amount as cancellation amount."
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"

Pros: "Food was good and the crew members were very friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment system for the full plane was not working. WiFi was not working. I was not too concerned about the WiFi, but for people traveling with children, no TV was difficult."

Pros: "Crew was nice and attentive to needs. I arrived safely at my destination so that’s all that matters."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed at CAI and no one informed us of this. I almost missed my connecting flight."

Pros: "Full meal and entertainment system even for a shorthaul flight."
Cons: "Tight leg room"

Pros: "They lost my luggage and no one knows where it is!"

Pros: "Sandwich was good and the seats had good padding and comfortable."

Pros: "Best flight ever on"

Cons: "The boarding procedure is chaotic and the boarding crew were rude and yelling at passengers. No organization skills and poor communication as we were delayed over 90 minutes at the boarding gate to add salt to injury"

Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."

Pros: "The benefits of being United Gold status is a real plus at the lounges and in the boarding process."
Cons: "The 12.5 hour flight is too long for my aging body!! Either bulkhead or business is needed for flights that long"

Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"
Cons: "second leg (Istanbul to Johannesburg) crew were rude!!!"

Pros: "Food & Wine"
Cons: "10hrs of screaming kids in row 12! Ta RDG"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "I had a 22 hour layover. On the website, Turkish Airlines advertises they cover hotel rooms for anyone with a layover exceeding 15 hours. However, it's impossible to get a e-visa to allow Americans to leave the airport to take advantage of this. There is one hotel inside the airport, however it's extremely expensive and booked well in advance. While the service was decent on the plane, inside the airport the TA employee's were very rude and not at all helpful. So be prepared to spend the night on the floor or an uncomfortable bench. Won't fly on this airline ever again."

Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."

Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."

Pros: "Turkish Airlines always has decent food and entertainment."
Cons: "An hour late with no apologies. And seats are so small, the people sitting next to me were so large that I didn’t have enough room."

Pros: "Food—though not much of it! If you’re asleep, good luck getting any food afterward. They were out of breakfasts after I awoke. Didn’t they count the reservations?"
Cons: "Restrooms dirty, cabin dirty—no owriodic seeeps, staff that makes no effort to interact. They appear frantic and overworked. sure hope the pilots are more engaged than everyone w Turkish Air"

Pros: "Excellent check-in and in-flight service"

Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"

Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "late boarding"

Pros: "The service of both the ground and flight teams"
Cons: "Food and entertainment was a bit less than the usual standard"

Pros: "Travelling with Turkish Airlines was pleasantly surprising! I'm used to domestic flights in the US which are no fun but as soon as I boarded our flight, the crew was so kind, I appreciated the pillows, blankets and extra care package provided with ear plugs, socks and an eye mask! It helped make the trip that much more pleasant to be able to sleep! I tend to get motion sickness and the crew on all four of our flights were so kind to give me water when I boarded the plane to be able to take my medicine. The flights were on time for the most part and the on-board entertainment helped a very long flight be more tolerable!"
Cons: "I had an issue with a passenger on our plane from Zanzibar to Istanbul but that was at no fault of the airline or the crew. One crew member was so sweet to allow my husband and I to move further back in the plane once boarding was finished. We were coming home from our honeymoon and the rude woman wouldn't get out of our seat so we could at least sit next to each other! It was unfortunate, but again, at no fault of the crew or airline and we were so thankful for the crew member helping us find somewhere we could sit together! I wish I would have gotten his name but it was on flight TK567 on May 4th. To whoever he was, thank you!!!"

Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"

Pros: "Besides the birth of my daughter, this trip to Italy through Istanbul was the greatest THING that I've experienced, EVER! My flight with Turkish Airlines was a HUGE part of that odyssey!"
Cons: "Because of my delayed flight from Atlanta, I missed my connecting flight from Turkey to Rome! So, in the future (yes I plan on flying through Turkish Airlines exclusively for international travel), I will book my flightts with a larger "gap" between flights! Otherwise....Turkish Airlines is PERFECTO!☺"

Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful and nice."
Cons: "There was miscommunication when checking in in Zagreb to instanbul to choose one electronic to use. We therefore mistakenly put our cell phone in our check in baggage to use our computer to do work. This was incorrect and significantly worsened our experience."

Pros: "Food was good. Entertainment was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but that wasn't the main problem. Went to the wrong gate for my connecting flight, Turkish air rep at the gate checked my boarding pass, didn't say a word about me being at the wrong gate. Tgere was no announcement of any kind (found out later, Turkish sir doesn't do announcement at the Istanbul airport. No clue as to why). Thought, tgere was another delay and by the time I asked, it was too late to catch my flight and that's when I got a full dose of every single person w Turkish air trying to stiff me with the most outrageous penalty for changing Nguyen my ticket. Started out at $1114 on a $758 ticket, then went down to $925 and if I stay over night, down to $750. Seriously? Rude, talking down at me and telling me that if I don't pay the penalty, my return ticket will be cancelled. I keep getting bounced from one person to another being told to wait here and wait there then I finally got so sick of all of it, bought a new connecting flight online, spending the night in Istanbul and will see what will happen w my return flight to the US. I call this 'theft' as if i buy an entire new ticket from Istanbul to Cairo then back to the US online, it will cost me less than the penalty they're trying to get me to pay. Shame on you Turkish airline!! You'd think w all the issues they're having w tourism in their country these days they'd care about not doing this kind of mistreatment of their clients."

Pros: "Good crew, good food, good entertainment."
Cons: "Very cramped economy seats; no reclining. Rude gate personnel in Istanbul."

Pros: "Clean bathrooms all the times. Eagerness of creaw to take action of our reauest of drink, coffee etc."
Cons: "Foot rest in plane from IST to ATL is restricting leg movements and hits legs when not lowered. Can get rid of foot rest. Also seat leg room and widht were noticably small compaired to flights from IAD to IST."

Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."

Cons: "Bad bad bad screens on such a long flight are a disgrace. Blurry and dark. Very old. I am a smiles and miles member and fly a lot THY but this was really bad."

Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."

Pros: "We had a great flight other than the uncomfortable seats. The food was outstanding and the staff the staff was very accommodating. I was glad I was able to charge phone/tablet on the plane"
Cons: "My seat didn't lay back, which made it was difficult to sleep. The seats are too close and generally uncomfortable. I just wish we could have toured Istanbul since we had a long lay-over. Took forever to find out where the tour was only to find out we needed Visas. The airport staff was not helpful. The bus tour is promoted on their website, and it sounded like it was easily accessed as soon as we were off our flight from Johannesburg. Not so."

Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, a lot of legroom."
Cons: "Suttle to the air plane."

Cons: "One of my checked bags was lost between the two flights"

Pros: "excellent food, service"

Pros: "Good service, good food!! I will use Turkish air again."

Pros: "on time, good boarding"
Cons: "Small space in new planes, water not freely available, limited movie selection, ear plugs are bad"

Pros: "Everything from the greeting received upon entering the plane to the overall service for the entire flight was quite excellent and wonderful. A really nice perk was the kit given to all the passengers in economy class with slippers, toothpaste, toothbrush, lip cream, and eye mask - no airline does this anymore and it is to be commended. The food on both legs of my flight (New York to Istanbul to Nice and the return) was actually very good -- this was the second time I've flown on Turkish Airlines and I look forward to flying again."

Pros: "My husband and I had a very average experience overall. From boarding to inflight customer service."
Cons: "We did not plan to check in any luggage since we had few connections, so we decide to take our rimowa luggage with us. So we were forced to check them in because it was only 8kg allow per passenger on carry on. So our luggage end up full of big dents, and scratches. We reported to the airlines and it was hard to justify what we were complaining about it. As a consumer were are very unsatisfied and unhappy. One of the worst experience in hospitality I have ever experience."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Boarding and airplane age."

Pros: "Entertainment (movies) always helpful to pass the time."
Cons: "Hot in the plane during and after boarding - no cool air. I have come to expect more from Turkish Airlines, and I hope they make sure they improve this aspect."

Pros: "They answered the phone quickly."
Cons: "I wanted to cancel my flight on Turkish as I was concerned about safety after the terrible attack there at IST. I was told that TK were changing tickets and issuing refunds for a period of 7 days after the attack - and I was scheduled to fly on day 8. They refused to refund or change - all they would say are 'fare fules' - 'fare rules'. When I passenger has a concern over personal safety, and in the aftermath of a large scale lapse in security at their main hub, they should be more understanding and not stand by their arbitrary 7 day rule."

Cons: "Better variety of latest movies,"

Cons: "Seating"

Pros: "Glad to receive small snacks for short flight Headphones were issued from from second flights, but not from Zanzibar"
Cons: "Check air on on plane as it was so lights that air doesn’t hit the face so it was very warm flight"

Pros: "I was upgraded to first class!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Comfortable seats and spacious leg room."
Cons: "Good ride and smooth landing."

Pros: "yes"
Cons: "not really"

Pros: "The timely departure and arrival."
Cons: "The aircraft deployed is old no entertainment facility...you cannot charge your phone."

Pros: "I had an entire row to myself so this greatly improved my experience, but if this had not been the case I don't think I would have rated my flight as high."

Pros: "Wow tj about a new airplane! I camt say enough about this flight it was spacious, enough entretainment to last the 4 hr flight no problem. Letrines galore!!"
Cons: "The airline needs a way to make the boarding both more efficient and orginized. It felt as if i was boarding a mini bus in any of the small towns, i was for sure waiting for someone to show up with a goat pushing people out of their way"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Easy boarding and extremely friendly staff"
Cons: "No intertainment, not even newspapers"

Cons: "Whites are given more attention than blacks yet we all pay for the flight"

Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Didn’t get a blanket at night"

Pros: "Clean plane, on-time departure"
Cons: "On this flight the meal trays stayed on the tables for over an hour (after the meal was served), should have been collected faster"

Pros: "Only the pilot take off and landing was owesome.. the other services were very poor.. eg I hated it when all our largages were left behind"
Cons: "pilot take off and landing.."

Pros: "after 5 hours of waiting when there was no boarding started at boarding gate we came to know that flight is dealyed by 7 more hours. They provided hotel but it took 3 hours for us to clear immigration and reached hotel and after 1 hours they came to pick us back. there was no support from airlines staff and we were at won. Hotel was just waste because we just use for one hour in 12 hours delay."

Pros: "The plane was pretty comfortable, they gave us blankets and pillows even though it was only a 4-hour flight."
Cons: "They served "breakfast" halfway through which was two tiny servings of meat and a piece of chocolate cake. Not much food and not really what I wanted to eat in the middle of the night! Boarding was completely chaotic, some screens said the flight was delayed, others said it was on time (it was delayed). When we arrived in Nairobi they hardly apologized for the delay, and also insisted on sending a bus to come pick us up from the plane because it was raining, which took forever. Missed my connection by about 5 minutes and had to wait almost 10 hours for the next one."

Cons: "Timing schedule not respected. No legroom my knees were so squeezed."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "customer service was superb entertainment screens and selection was excellent seats were among the best on any airline. The plane was a seemingly fairly new Boeing Dreamliner, very nice"
Cons: "Food was good but not spectaular - not up to Singapore Airlines for example but better than most other long haul carriers"

Pros: "Timeous and polite crew"
Cons: "The food was mediocre and no choice for entertainment, common movie or 2 low quality music channels"

Cons: "Staff on the airplane a bit miserable. Uncomfortable seats and no choice of food. Going downhill"

Pros: "Kenya Air had a nice plane, nice snack, and good service on board the flight."
Cons: "Zanzibar's check in process was atrocious. The systems were slow, so it took forever to get through the queue. Then we were told we had to check our carry one because they were just over weight. They didn't tell us that upon arrival in Nairobi we would have to leave the secured area, go out, pay the visa fee (cash only), get the bags on the carousel, check in at the front, and go back through security again."

Cons: "Poor Service. Did not care attitude."

Pros: "Late arrival Nairobi. missed flight"
Cons: "Late arrival Nairobi. missed flight"

Cons: "Kenya Airways ground staff in Nairobi was late to open the desk, creating a large line"

Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "There was no clarity on baggage allowance on either leg of the flight. This created a situation in which I was charged two different amounts of extra baggage and given bad information on both the departure and return trip. It was also unclear that, though we'd purchased a Kenyan Airlines round-trip between Nairobi and Zanzibar, the outbound leg was operated by Precision Air. This was not indicated on our e-tickets. We found out at the airport."

Pros: "Convenient morning flight"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for tall passengers"

Pros: "It was fine."

Pros: "I was happy to arrive on time"

Pros: "Generous carry on limit, good prices, complimentary food on flights, on time departures, on demand entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding lines were a bit chaotic."

Pros: "Brief 50 minute flight where everyone was served TWO bags of cashews/macadams - quick , polite"
Cons: "More amusing than unpleasurable when after making his "final prepare" for landing in Kusumu announcement, the pilot came back on and stated he "forgot to tell" us that there was construction work on the runway and we will braking harder then usual to make an abrupt stop."

Pros: "5 star service"

Cons: "The food was so-so. The flight was delayed. The crew was friendly, but nothing outstanding."

Cons: "They lost one piece of baggage. The check-in crew said we were required to have our vaccination cards although nobody asked for them. Then we waited an hour pulling off one piece of baggage and then they didn't load it on our flight."

Pros: "Quick"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "It was a great flight except for food"
Cons: "Choice of dish - fish ( was like rubber) or beef"

Pros: "I liked the food and actual service on the flight"
Cons: "Notorious for flight delays! How can you cancel an entire flight the day before?! Horrible! The delays are very annoying! Kenya Airways you're fired! Kayak, you guys should remove their crappy service from your options!! I only found out about the delay from their online service. The actual people suck! And do not even try to get through on their customer service line!"

Cons: "It delayed one hour both tip. I lost my time to promise with my guest. Keep the filght time."

Pros: "Plane was a new Dreamliner and nice to fly in with excellent entertainment package."
Cons: "I had 3 hours in Johannesburg before catching a shuttle bus, so being an hour late wasn't a big problem. After rushing from Entebbe flight which was an hour late leaving and arriving, I got to the gate to be informed that this NBO to JNB flight was an hour late in departing. Pilot said it was due to "technical difficulties". My ticket had 4 legs : Nov 28 due to leave JNB at 1:20 finally left at 8:30 due to NBO runway closed from plane belly landing - the pilot was very apologetic - LATE. Dec 5 NBO to Entebbe was an hour late due to "passenger problem and luggage taken off" - LATE. Dec 10 Entebbe to NBO left an hour late due to "plane arriving late" - LATE. Dec 10 NBO to Johannesburg was an hour late due to "technical difficulties" - LATE. All 4 flights were at least an hour late leaving and arriving yet the pilots all said thanks for flying Kenya Airways - the Pride of Africa. This is what Africa should be proud of ?!? and Kenya Airways is proud of ?!? Passengers I talked to all were negative in their comments about Kenya Airways. All said there is ALWAYS something of a problem on a Kenya Airways flight. Lady on NBO to EBB flight next to me as we boarded plane and I said everything has gone smoothly so far, replied - the flight isn't over yet - and then we sat in the plane for an hour while they "removed passengers luggage". A man in NBO departure area as we waited to board JNB late flight said, the procedures and organisation are terrible with problems most of the time, which was why he was using up his reward miles because he didn't want to fly Kenya Airways again. This is the culture of this airline which is allowed to continue with seemingly no regard for the paying customers. If the powers that be such as the FAA, imposed a $100 credit to each passenger for late leaving or arriving, I would have received $400 back on a ticket that cost $750. Maybe the airlines would do something practical to remedy their problems and care for the paying customers rather than just saying "we are sorry for any inconvenience "."

Pros: "That we eventually left"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed because the airport shut down. When the airport opened again. They gave us a departure time 4 hours after our original departure time (1:20 am). 1:20 came and went without any more communication or information. 1:40 am arrived and someone from KQ showed up at our gate and said they do not have any additional information. We said there are children here and hungry, tired, frustrated people. We suggested they distribute waters or snacks, but that never happened. They just kept telling us they didnt know when the flight would take off (or if it would) nor when they would have any additional information. An hour later they made one announcement over the speaker at our gate that our flight was boarding at another gate. However, many people had fallen asleep on the floor as I had and I would have missed it if one of my fellow passengers hadnt woken me up to say that we were boarding. We then sat on the tarmac a while longer for reasons that were not explained and finally landed 7 hours later than scheduled. Very little effort was put into communicating to us, making our wait comfortable nor apologizing for the inconvenience. It was a very frustrating experience."

Cons: "I was not informed by either telephone or email that the flight was being delayed by 3 hours until I have arrived at the airport, despite having the customer contact information. Moreover the delay eventually turned out to be about four and a half hours; disgraceful and unprofessional! I no longer plan to patronize Kenya Airways if I can help it!"

Cons: "The planes on this route are also very old with manual screens,unnecessary delays. I mean KQ needs to style up. Another airline will soon sweep them off business"

Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "Evertthing"
Cons: "Nithing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They kicked me off my flight and didn't even compensate me for no availability of seats. I was stranded for 48 hours with food, water, money or wifi!!!!!"

Cons: "the food was not great (i don't have high expectations for airplane food)"

Pros: "Have entertainment for a flight more than one hour."
Cons: "Flight take off delay"

Cons: "Cancelling flights without notification causing arrival at airport way too early. Missed connections & lost bookings. Bad even by African customer service."

Pros: "overall"
Cons: "Good"

Cons: "It was exce"

Pros: "I like that it’s a direct flight from Newark to Lomé I like that it’s cheaper than over airlines I like that it’s a late flight: it allows out of state passengers to catch the flight without having to stay overnight in NY"
Cons: "Some crew members are unfriendly The toilets are always smelly and dirty. The floor stick with pee. Pee all over the toilets seats. Unsanitary especially when you are traveling with a child or an elderly. The TVs touch screens do not work The volume of the crew is too high"

Cons: "Better seat"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind"

Pros: "seat not comfortable"
Cons: "more drinks along the way"

Pros: "Excellent seat"

Cons: "Nothing very nice flight."

Cons: "Bole airport in Addis no place to sit and wait befor you check in"

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "We were delayed for extremely long"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Staff needs to be briefed on what an insulin pump is."

Pros: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"
Cons: "Flight time changed without notice. Delays in Medinah caused us to miss our connecting flight to Johannesburg. Really poor communication. No agents would take calls in Jeddah. Really terrible service. Would avoid using this airline at all cost. Not the first time I've been delayed by them"

Pros: "I received flying miles for this flight, well actually I really tried to find something positive to say"
Cons: "spent 19+ hrs in the airport in Addis Abeba, when I was supposed to be transferred to a hotel, needless to say, the airport at night is not the best place a woman would like to spend her time."

Pros: "Seat layout-767 has only two seats across on the side sections, much better than three, which most planes have. Crew was courteous, captain explained reasons for delay. Plane was not crowded."
Cons: "Flight delayed two hours by weather. Ground operations seemed slow. All planes were delayed by weather, but ours took longer to get ready once weather cleared. Passengers were bussed to the plane for both boarding and disembarking while other planes used jet bridges."

Cons: "Cabin crew quite distracted. Between rows 19-23, orders were totally mixed up People given wrong food or drinks"

Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't working properly. I requested Asian Vegetarian Meal and they gave me regular Vegetarian Meal."

Pros: "New plane fantastic cabin"
Cons: "There was a fight but nothibg to do with the flight crew just some passenger with mental issues"

Cons: "They didn’t announce when boarding started/what zones were to go."

Cons: "The services at the airport was terrible. The Booked me a flight with only a 30 minute layover. When I try telling the people before boarding the plane, big Norred me. When I told the flight attendant she said she would talk to the captain to see if there’s a way I could get a ride to my next plane so I wouldn’t miss it. That never happened. When we got off the plane no one at the airport would help us and when I was trying to run to my next terminal one of the officers at the airport told me to slow down because I wouldn’t miss the plane and I was fine. When I asked help with directions and told him I was afraid of missing my flight people laughed and walked away. When I finally found my terminal and got to it, my flight had already took off seven minutes prior. I absolutelyHated my experience flying with Ethiopian air. The seats are uncomfortable on the plane, not all the seats recline back the same level, and when I was eating dinner I decided to eat chicken since I can’t eat beef and halfway through the check in my stomach started her and I looked up the chicken and it was still pink inside."

Cons: "The whole thing was a disaster. I lost my connection flight due to incompetence from the Ethiopian airlines representative"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "untrained staff, pathetic food very conjusted spacewise."

Pros: "The standarts (equal to african standarts of course)"

Cons: "They overbooked and pushed us to later flight, later flight boarded late, on run way 2 hours, plane maintenance issue so changed aircraft—supposed to arrive 1:30pm, arrived after 10pm, gate agent erased reservation adding frequent flyer number so my seat was given to someone else and I sat finally in last row by toilet instead of with my family—then no one can find record of my return flight and Ethiopian contact number impossible to reach. Truly awful experience. I have no idea if I will have seat on return flight."

Cons: "Did not provide special meal although I called ahead to request it. Connecting flight left before we arrived to Addis Ababa. Customer service tried to encourage the thought that putting us on a different flight was a courtesy..."

Pros: "Everything Kosher food was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Great crew, decent food"

Pros: "Comfortable flight, pleasant airline attendants."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff."
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse). Seat ahead reclines almost too much into personal space in the new 787 aircraft. The LCD displays don't pivot so it's virtually impossible to view the entertainment when the occupant of the seat in front fully reclines ( a somewhat irritating issue on a long flight )"

Pros: "Excellent chicken dish"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "The airline never gave us any status updates.Call center was helpless. Eventually bought a same day ticket at 5X the price on another airlines get out. before visa expired. Now they don't want to refund my ticket saying I am a no show..What a horrible airline"

Cons: "Seats were dirty"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Friendly team."

Pros: "The crew very kind and made me feel comfortable"
Cons: "Old 767, with not comfortable set up and no individual TV set."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The food was horrible. My TV didn't work and although I asked for it to be reset several times, the crew kept forgetting. The flight was supposed to be 9 hours, but we left late and it was 11+ hours. I understand things happen, but the crew gave no explanation for the delay or elongated flight. Last, but not least, when we landed in Newark we waited 2 hours for our luggage to come out. We landed at 9:50pm and didn't receive our baggage until 11:50pm. My friend and I were not even the last to get our bags. Overall this was the worst flight experience I've ever had."

Pros: "The best flight ever and the crew is super cool"

Pros: "The flight was delayed 4 hrs"

Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Cons: "One segment of my flight did not have the gluten free meal I had requested ahead of time. Super crowded."

Cons: "Very very old aeroplane"

Cons: "There was no entertainment system and there was no vegetarian option. I would have registered for the vegetarian option ahead of time, but when I tried to do online check in, it didn't work."

Pros: "Nothing. My bag is gone"
Cons: "My bag is gone"

Pros: "It was a good flight, made only a little disappointing by all the children running through the plane, opening the washroom doors and leaving them open. A little strange, really."
