Pros: "I wish this airline had more service within the US!! This airline is impeccable. We flew 16 hours from Doha to Miami and it was amazing. At the airport in Doha the flight representative went above and beyond to accommodate better seating for myself and my son.

I will definitely be giving this airline my hard earned money in the future for reservations as much as I can!!!!"

Pros: "Staff were friendly, food was good, and the plane was nice."

This flight, the films are a bit better but still not the most recently films are on offer. Nobu's seafood soup noodles was the best!"

I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site.

Cons: "The boarding process by bus transfer in Dubai was quite long and convoluted. The food options were limited and overall low quality"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Attentive crew. Good entertainment options"

Pros: "Whether coach, business or 1st class, Emirates creates their passengers with respect and thanks in all they do. A 13 hour flight is no short haul and the Emirates staff kept a positive aire throughout the flight. The meals were very good, the service as well. The facilities were kept clean and accessible.

Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Emirates is a true Customer Service oriented airline. It is a relief to know that in this age of carriers that charge you a lot and treat you like you are paying a bus ticket there are airlines that still know the key to success. Boarding was fine and not dependent on local personalities. You can tell the company cares about training. The food and entertainment is excellent. Seats are still a little smaller but they try and make up with it with other perks. Flight crew was polite, smiling, and accommodating no matter the time. Pillows, blankets, snacks, etc. all given without having to ask or be charged. We were also given these little self care packs with toothbrush & paste, eye pillow, socks, and earplugs! Overall it made a long flight over night very comfortable."

Pros: "Nice travel from Dallas to Dubai and I am happy."
Pros: "better than super stinky American carriers"
Cons: "everything, food was below average"
Cons: "Kayak booked the ticket through flight network and when we reached airport the airline staff was not able to find the ticket. The flight was missed in trying to find what went wrong and when called the flight network they told that due to insufficient time between booking and departure time they canceled the reservation. No message was sent for cancelation and it caused a lot of troubles and grief to all involved."
Pros: "The ICE system was a perfect way to spend 13 hours on a plane. I watched a movie, listened to music, even watched part of a live broadcast NFL game during the trip. Much appreciated!"
Pros: "Entertainment offer was great. Live channels, talks, movies, etc..."
Cons: "The service... it was almost a 7 hours flight, the crew brings you your food and that's it. I needed to ask more than three times to get water, again and again, I can't understand this behaviour at all. They treat you extremely bad unless you fly business with them. I felt uncomfortable and didn't like this behaviour at all."
Pros: "A380 is a great airplane. More specs for legs. Comfortable seats. Good choice of movies (different languages). Great crew"
Cons: "Meal was good but I had more from Emirates. It was night flight and light worked within the flight."

Cons: "wifi wasn't good - I couldn't connect. Wine choice wasn't good (white). Would have preferred a sav blanc"
Pros: "The check in was good. The flight was good and the hosts were ok."
Cons: "The quality of food overall on Emirates has gone down. The food doesn't taste as fresh as it used to and it is a bit dry. I used to enjoy the little dried bread bits with the sweet and sour sauce- that has since been discontinued. We were also promised a festive meal on our flight from JNB to Hong Kong on Christmas day but got a regular meal- very disappointing"
Pros: "Crew v good"
Cons: "Food .. Fish undercooked ... Aircraft bit dated"
Pros: "Large room between seats in economy such that I could sit comfortably with my rather long legs"
Pros: "The flight entertainment system and crew were top-notch."
Cons: "The off-loading from the plane after landing in Dubai was as terrible as I have experienced. It took forever to get off the train to the busses, the staff on the ground seemed very confused about who should go to which bus (much to the visible frustration of flight attendants), and once we boarded the bus, it was a half-hour trip to the airport terminal. Half an hour. Standing up, to get from the plane to the airport. We landed an A380 at the Emirates flagship airport on-time for a normally scheduled flight, and it seemed to take everyone by surprise."
Pros: "Your staff are amazing....very welcoming, attentive and a joy to be around. I was comfortable i.e leg room was right for my long legs."
Cons: "You offer limited choices on food with consideration to Diversity of your clientelle. Your meal vouchers offer substandard meals in the few selected restaurants. I had layover period of 10hrs on.my return leg and about 6/7hrs. These are extremely long hours to sleep on those uncomfortable lounge chairs. This was the worst experience in my flying time."
Pros: "Crew were great with looking after us. Got us a special meal even though we didn't order it ahead of the flight. Very impressed."
Pros: "Food , entertainment"
Cons: "Seats very compact"
Pros: "The good hospitality and customer service from the airline staff and agents over the phone."
Cons: "I disliked the feeling of being targeted and discriminated against. I was forced to undergo additional unwarranted extensive security checks as I was boarding the plane. I was asked to step aside and have my carry on rechecked while I was being interrogated by an officer. This is all in addition to going through an extensive security check at the security checkpoint. This procedure is Unjust and Humiliating for innocent passengers try to take a flight with absolutely nothing to hide."
Cons: "There was no wheelchair available at Dubai airport."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. Plane interior was in new condition, including electronic window shade tinting."
Cons: "Staff was not particularly warm or attentive. Was never offered more to drink, and after asking for more wine was ignored."
Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Cons: "It's KLM. What else do you need to know."
Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff!

Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time flight."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."

Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"

Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."

Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"
Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."

Pros: "We got to our destination"
Cons: "They don’t even give you a cup of water, a horrible low cost airline with premium pretences! Gatwick is a horrible airport to fly to."

Pros: "The seat was comfortable, and the crew was friendly"
Pros: "I liked crew's friendly attitudes."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Lack of punctuality (90 minutes late, due to “late arrival of inbound aircraft” as per usua). Ever decreasing seat pitch so absolutely abysmal lack of comfort. Dismal snacks and drinks for purchase. Bus service at LHR rather than jetty."
Cons: "I experienced several delays on my journey to Zurich and so my itinerary was changed. When I started my journey to Madison, there were apparently then multiple bookings, which caused confusion, and had to be sorted out. Luckily I had left plenty of time to get through security and customs."
Pros: "Quick flight, good service."
Cons: "No complaints about BA here! Only thing is that there was a group of rowdy young men who were very loud the entire flight, and I'd wished the flight attendants would have asked them to quiet down. But I really don't know if that's appropriate/part of their duties!"
Pros: "Pilot skilled, first landing attempt was too shaky so we pulled up and did it again"
Cons: "Long wait to take off, all food and beverage on the flight were for sale only which feels petty"

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Quality of service, the fact that they charge you for a bottle of water!"
Cons: "Flight LCY-ZRH (19:35-22:10) departed delayed by >1h, we had to wait in boarding staircase standing with 9mth old baby for 45mins. Due to late take-off we were too late to land in ZRH as runway had already closed. Diverted to Stuttgart, where no BA staff was on the ground to deal with and all services had already closed (~00:30). Basically ~50 customers were dumped at a place they didn’t want to be and no info on his BA wanted to deal with it was given. After 1 week still no info on compensation. And this wants to be a major carrier?"
Pros: "Flight was onetime, food on the flight was for purchase but it was vert nice, boarding was onetime and smooth."
Pros: "The crew and the plan and the service were all top notch. However, their new policy as of 1/1/2018 in which they even charge for coffee and water seems very misplaced and excessive."
Cons: "Their new policy as of 1/1/2018 in which they even charge for coffee and water on short flights (Madrid to London in this case) seems excessive, even in this day of ala carte flying. :-("
Pros: "Crew and pilot were very friendly"
Cons: "No free food, no entertainment"
Cons: "They could not see our flight from London to dallas so they would not let us get on the plane in Zurich."
Pros: "Not much to say about this. Really the experience was not so good and I think the only good thing to say is that their planes still work."
Cons: "First they they over sold the flight and as we had our previous flight delayed they didn't allow us to cross the gates as they said we couldn't make it on time rather than telling us the truth. The staff didn't do anything to help us to catch the flight and insisted in putting us on the next flight. Thankfully I noticed that the flight was delayed and I crossed the gates despite that the staff didn't want us to do it. Once in the plane, the flight entertainment was poor, didn't work and staff said it was too busy to help us out in putting our stuff on the overhead compartment or even giving us the beer we wanted despite having our choice In front of us."
Pros: "Clean, informative pilot"
Cons: "2 hours delay!"
Cons: "Was given hard time about guitar carry-on - British Airways kept wanting us to check it, even though we had zero problems bringing it to Zurich on American Airlines."
Cons: "Boarding at Gate E46 was disorganised both in timing ans execution. We were told on checkin that boarding would be early and it was late, closer to the original estimated time and then the order of boarding, parents with kids, then ExecClub and Business, and then others was ignored..."
Cons: "Bad boarding, problem with booking (BA fault), overall worse than budge airline"
Pros: "Excellent flight."
Cons: "Cramped and no free tea/coffee"
Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and good."
Cons: "The Airbus seating in the tourist section is terrible. The seats are very close together, making it very difficult to get in and out, particularly if the person in front of you puts the seat back. On long flights we like to get up and move around a few times, and not only is it hard to get out of our seats to do this, there is little room to walk or stop to stretch. Heathrow London is tolerable if one is going to London, but as a place to change planes, it's exhausting. The various walks feel like mazes, and going from one terminal to another, even by tram, is time-consuming and tiring. We fly to Europe often, but we will try to avoid both British Airways (Airbuses, at least) and Heathrow."
Pros: "great team. good snacks. great room."
Pros: "Upgrades at the gate. $450 for premium economy and $999 for Business."
Pros: "We sat in the plane for 2 hours and were told they were dealing with a passenger issue."
Pros: "Nothing - absolutely nothing."
Cons: "A 30-year old 767. Broken headrests on seats. Late departure with no rationale offered. Usual (by now) pathetic fare ordered as food and beverages at a cost. Surly aervice. All at a premium price."
Cons: "Seating. Meal. Entertainment. Did not compare well to Air Canada."
Pros: "I still think highly of BA but please don't follow American domestic carriers down the rabbit hole of terrible service with regards to food and comfort."
Cons: "Short haul flights food not served and need to be purchased"
Cons: "A fellow traveler needed to check a bag and BA charged more for the bag than we paid for the flight. They said that because the flight was not full it cost more??? Ridiculous! If flight not full she should have paid less.... Very unhappy with this policy."
Pros: "Short flight so service was standard, was conked out for most of it so I guess it was comfortable :D"
Pros: "The trip was adequate in all aspects for a short haul flight"
Cons: "It was very difficult to get our seat assignments.. We had to wait till the last day."
Pros: "Excellent Airline....."
Cons: "No Wifi"
Pros: "Ran on time"
Cons: "Boarding via the tarmac; check-in staff did not assign a seat for ongoing flight legs, desp"
Cons: "The seats were tight & crews are not at all welcoming! Connection time was insufficient for the strict security screenings, custom clearance & distance between gates (London Would never connect at London Heathrow ever again!"
Pros: "I thoroughly enjoyed my flights. Boarding was efficient and well-conducted. Seats were quite comfortable, I felt. The entertainment systems included plenty of content; movies allowed for different tastes, and there were other options. The crew were thoughtful and responsive to specific requests or needs. Blankets and pillows, earphones and announcements were useful. It was possible to sleep, but also, to stay awake if necessary. The flight arrived in good time, and was de-boarded efficiently as well. The menu was sufficient, although the tarragon chicken was underwhelming: the pasta dish was quite nice. The coffee was not great, but drinkable. I appreciated having actual milk for the coffee."
Cons: "The gates at Heathrow are not announced until one hour before, which can mean a long trek to arrive in time for boarding. Also, at IAD, there's a lot of queuing and navigating passage systems both to get to the plane and to arrive back. I liked the new kiosks for the entry to immigration/passport however."
Pros: "Flight was on time, staff were friendly and helpful (eg brought me coffee and pastry when I slept through the device)."
Cons: "Late flight missed my connection and totally horrible experience"
Pros: "Bar option for self service. Large bathrooms. Yes attitude of crew."
Cons: "Waking me up when I am clearly asleep to ask if I want food or drink 3 times. I think passengers should not be disturbed. Forgetting to offer me duty free shopping later in flight when I clearly said yes I would like to shop and then when I remembered it was too late."
