Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "The flight was quite good, with pretty tasty food, plenty of food and drinks, chairs reclined quite a bit, little extra and gifts for kids, slippers, socks, ear plugs."
Cons: "Boarding prices very disorganized. No announcements and a crowd sprig where everyone just pulled at the gate. Very few announcements in general."

Pros: "Great choice of recently released movies."

Pros: "Crew was nice. I was really thirsty and I kept asking for water. He should have just given me a small bottle. Also need more than 4 Bollywood movies. This was a returning flight after 2 weeks and it had the same 4 movies which I had already seen."
Cons: "I had a 14 hour layover in istanbul airport. Arrived at midnight and flight wasn’t until 2 pm the next day. I just assumed that they would give me a hotel. Come to find out thats wasnt the case when I landed. Given all kinds of reasons/excuses. The guy at the transfer desk told me”you should have known that your layover was this long since you booked it”. Will have second thoughts about flying Turkish again. Left a bad taste in my mouth. Might stick with Emirates or Qatar."

Cons: "I contacted Turkish Airlines 4x times before my flight to learn how to deal with excess medical baggage, mobility assistance, and meal assistance. The Customer Call Center claimed to have made all of my necessary reservation updates for all of my special meal, medical, and mobility assistance needs. They did not! When I arrived at Check-In, there were no notes about any of my requests, nor services prepared to facilitate them. I spent over 30-45 minutes escalating the situation to the Shift Manager who had to contact the central call center and her own manager, just to find out what to do about medical baggage, what's permitted, etc. I was embarrassed for their employees, who not only didn't know their own company policy on the matter, nor were they aware of the industry standard. After much arguing, yelling and threats, the Check-In desk agents finally allowed my excess medical baggage and equipment without extra charge. I still received no mobility assistance to begin my travel after Check-In to my departure gate, nor were they prepared to offer this to me in Istanbul. Again, after a long wait, much yelling, screaming, and arguing, I was finally provided mobility assistance just in time for my flight. I almost missed my flight due to Turkish Airlines not putting my request in the system, nor caring enough about the traveler to do so at Check-In. When I arrived in Belgrade, 3x pieces of my luggage were destroyed and unusable again, medical equipment was damaged, and I filed a claim with Turkish Airlines. They tried every way possible not to pay, but finally offered a meager claim, nothing close to what it cost for the damage caused or to repair or replacement the destroyed luggage or medical equipment. Turkish Airlines is the Grey Hound of travel, sure they might be large, offer many itineraries and frequent travel, but their quality, customer service and professionalism leave them amongst the bottom feeders, still 3rd world in mentality, form and function. No honor, no integrity, no class. No reason to ever fly with Turkish again, and I'm happy to tell everyone I know not to fly with them!"

Cons: "They are not considerate at all . It was a pain till they find Me another flight. The flight won’t take off till the next day And the lay over in Los Angeles is 7hrs . It’s a 2 days flight. They didn’t even try to take the time to find me a sooner flight because there were other upset customers waiting. So disappointed on how poor the help desk at Turkish airline."

Pros: "The movie options and quality of the screens was excellent. That's what got us through the flight."
Cons: "The food was horrible and served at odd times. The people around us smelled really bad so we had a rough time. I know it's pout of the airlines control but it really made the whole flight difficult."

Pros: "food was fine"
Cons: "seat comfort is a real problem in this configuration of the 777-300er. all the more frustrating over a 13 hour flight. foot rest either hampers foot room under seat (when down) or digs into shins (when up.) There is NO comfortable seat position with that footrest. Every Economy passenger would be much better served if the footrests were completely removed."

Pros: "Nothing important"
Cons: "Nothing extra ordinary"

Pros: "The included meal/drinks is always a bonus on these shorter flights and makes a difference."
Cons: "I had a pillow of my own and so it didn't matter too much, but I noticed the lack of a pillow on this early morning flight."

Cons: "Delay in receiving luggage ,"

Cons: "poor customer service and lack of speaking english made the trip very challenging. I don't think i will travel with Turkish air again."

Pros: "price and food"
Cons: "Customer service need to get way better"

Pros: "Friendly attendants, newer plane with comforts seats even in economy. Great food and amenities."
Cons: "Smelly passengers with body odor. Screaming, crying children that poo every couple of hours. A/C WAS INCONSISTANT drspite several complaints to cabin attendants."

Pros: "Space inside the plane. There were empty seats that increased the comfort."
Cons: "Lack of courtesy inside the airport and in the plane. Countless passport checkups, poor communication during the flight."

Cons: "Just as bad as it was from Rome to Istanbul"

Pros: "Cost / value, part of Star alliance group, nice lounge at Istanbul. Decent food, drink and entertainment on board."
Cons: "Boarding a bit of a zoo. Long lines at passport control."

Pros: "The movies and the gift to the kids were good."
Cons: "The attendant should make more rounds in such a long flight."

Pros: "Onboard experience very good. Food, entertainment, facilities. Tight seats - per usual."
Cons: "Getting boarding passes and checking luggage took two hours. Literally was being dealt with for two hours personally while a couple employees typed and complained to reticket us after airline inexplicably cancelled our reservation on flight home. Until about 30 minutes before departure, no employee had assured us we would get on the plane we paid to be on. Just no concern for the anxiety we were dealing with - and Turkish caused."

Cons: "My flight was supposed to leave at 3 am. Not was delayed till 4:30. I had only 25 minutes to catch the other flight. I made it last minute. I asked the Turkish airline representative at the gate if my bag is on the plane. He said "yes". When I arrived to London I couldn't fibd my bag. I spent more than an hour looking for it since the employee assured me it was loaded to the plane, the person who was waiting to pick me yo had to pay around 15£ parking and wait for one hour and a half. I arrived without luggage. I have everything in the bag, my umbrella, jacket, cloths, pajamas, underwater, everything... the allowance that Turkish Airlibe said they will give allowed me to only buy a Pajama. I am totally NOT satisfied. I will not travel on this Airlibe again"

Pros: "Boarding was tedious with like 6 checks of your passport but being safe is never a bad thing. No cost alcohol is always a plus and the food was good. Staff was super nice and accommodating."
Cons: "I intentionally chose an empty row but people kept shuffling. so many folks were standing blocking aisles. I think staff could do a better job to prevent that."

Pros: "Turkish delights on-board"
Cons: "Chaos at the Istanbul terminal. Connecting flight was literally a mile away. We had to run through the entire terminal only to miss our connection. No help/information from the airline. They made us walk even more to get us transferred to hotel for a night. Their crew repeatedly lied about how to get new boarding passes as they were busy and didn't want to do it for us. Sent us to another transfer desk. No veg. food option even after making a special request. They said sometimes those mistakes happen. You can't call the crew from your sit to get snacks. They make you get out of your middle sit and walk to the back of the plane to get a sandwich. The boarding process at the Istanbul airport is even more chaotic. They have their own security (after having done security at the o origin in Rome AND at the IST airport), which requires standing in an hour long line and getting profiled and judged by the airline staff."

Pros: "When we couldn't fly United (due to cost) we were not sure what to expect from Turkish Airlines since we didn't know anyone who had flown it before. It was very pleasant and we thoroughly enjoyed the flight. We felt like we received first class treatment in the economy section of the plane. From warm hand towels, beautiful menus for meals and beverages available, a toiletry bag and much more. The inflight entertainment was awesome. Love the large screen and the touch screen abilities. So many great choices."
Cons: "The temperature of the cabin changed drastically from being very hot to very cold in a short matter of time. The boarding process was also not organized well at all as we lined up in our groups, but people did not follow this so although we were group A, somehow people from lower groups were boarding before us. The seats were a bit hard."

Pros: "Really amazing except for..."
Cons: "Stewardesses did their jobs, but as far as checking on passengers at non-food and assigned drink times, they were sitting in the back drinking coffee and talking. On top of not making rounds, there was no call button to summon a stewardess. Twice, my husband who was ill had a "coughing attack" and needed a glass of water... there was nobody was available. A passenger had to go and get them from the back. Perhaps due to this being a 13 hour flight, this is not a normal situation for them, but to go three hours at a time without taking a stroll through the cabin seems unprofessional. Otherwise this airline really does amazing service! I did not realize that such airline service still existed. American ones should pay attention!"

Pros: "Food was good. Staff very friendly."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excellent service."
Cons: "Istanbul airport takes some getting used to."

Pros: "I like the comfort of the interior, the entertainment."
Cons: "I did not quite like the food. The macaroni dish, I did not like particularly. Didn't eat it at all. Chinyere"

Pros: "The entertainment and food was excellent!"
Cons: "Waiting on the Tarmac for 1+hrs"

Cons: "The flight TK 119 (Khi - Istanbul) reached Istanbul late by half an hour. The layover at Istanbul was 1 hr 25 m. The distance to reach Gate 504 was terribly long. I had to run all that long distance to reach gate. After passing thru security checks, etc. I was completely exhausted. All that trouble to be dropped from plane on the runway and then using bus to reach terminal building and vice versa for the onward flight TK 33, was a terrible experience. The layover time and the lengthy and tiring procedure need immediate revision and rectification. Instead of comfort, passengers get high blood pressure and exhaustion. Very troublesome experience."

Pros: "Love the "welcome aboard" Turkish delight. Enjoyed the pide sandwich snack."
Cons: "Offer water or any drinks instead of us having go to the kitchen area. Would be better to offer drinks in bottles instead of a glass. Also, bring snack offerings throughout cabin. I was traveling with 3 children. Could you think about offering food to the passengers with children first? This would help in getting them settled into the plane instead of waiting for their food -- which for them seems like an eternity."

Pros: "The price, wonderful service, plenty of good food. Great entertainment selection"
Cons: "I wish there was a little more leg room, specially for such a long flight."

Pros: "Food and entertainment."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding and lower than average leg room"

Pros: "The food was great, had chance to sample some Turkish cuisine. Way better food than any meal you would get from an American-based airline. Entertainment was excellent, great variety of TV shows and movies. The flight attendants were attentive and helpful. The Batman v. Superman theme was a nice touch. Decent leg room in economy class."
Cons: "Because we fly an older model 777-300ER, there wasn't a personal a/c nozzle, so it was a tad warm on the plane. They should fix that whenever the plane goes in for maintenance."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "In flight entertainment and Wifi is amazing"
Cons: "Cabin crew service and ground staff service is below par. Next time, I will stick to Air France."

Pros: "The service provided by the airline crew was magnificent. I enjoyed the entire flight from my departure point to the arrival point. Turkish Airline is my to go airline herein henceforth. I will implore prospective travelers to give the airline a shot (try). I can unequivocally attest that the decision to do so will not be regretted."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Great customer satisfaction reach on time"
Cons: "Great customer satisfaction reach on time"

Pros: "Crew was nice, cordial and helpful Food was good, I wasn't asked for an optional meal in the second serving. Also there shouldn't be an 8 hour gap in between meals for pasengers in a 13 hour flight Entertainment was amazing! so many options to watch so many things."
Cons: "Flight was at 80% and I wasn't allowed to change seats. The seats were bigger, but still not enough room space for someone that's 1.85 mts.(13 hour flight was tiring) Boarding was a nightmare, it took HOURS, starting by the very unorganized control which asked more questions than the American control."

Pros: "ditto from above"
Cons: "On all the flights the food was slow but on the way back it was much worse... I selected vegetarian but on the way back there wasn't a vegetarian meal for me so they said they would put something together... when they came around with drinks I asked for water and they were 'out' then they forgot I still didn't have anything to eat or drink so after an hour I went to ask if I could have something. 20 minutes later she finally came with food and I, again, asked for water and she pointed to the tiny cup on the tray (which contains like 3oz)."

Cons: "Good flight with excellent customer service"

Pros: "Everything aboard the flight was great - roominess, comfort, punctuality, etc. Getting to the plane was another story."
Cons: "Boarding process in ISt was a zoo. Crazy check-in process, leading to a 3-flight set of stairs down to tarmac - crowded coach was hot - long (10-minute) coach ride from one end of ISt to the other - then climb a tall stair case into a 777, one of the largest aircraft around. Did it not qualify for normal direct boarding via a jetway?"

Cons: "4 HR ground hold only partially made up for with faster flight time"

Pros: "Everything other than what we wrote was fine. Seats were good, it was comfortable etc."
Cons: "When flying any flight, it's nice to have entertainment. When the entertainment doesn't work on long hall flights it's a problem and it was not working on this 13+ hour flight. Also, we dont like complaining about not having wife 36,000 feet up in the sky, but if it's offered, we would have expected the crew to be familiar with it. When we asked for help with the wifi set-up, the crew seemed to be unable to help with that and we were left with no wifi the entire flight."

Pros: "Entertainment screen was new and user friendly with many options. The food was surprisingly tasty. Accessory packet had niceties. Flight attendants were very helpful. I would consider Turkish Airlines at the top of my list on my next trip."
Cons: "The sandwich snack available at all times could have been 100% whole grain to be more healthful."

Pros: "Everything. For being Economy the flight was very comfortable. The staff was perfect. I enjoyed everything"

Pros: "Loved the inflight camera. Last time I saw something like that, it was on an Emirates flight. Loved it."
Cons: "I was late to this flight, because my previous flight got in late. I boarded the plane and asked a flight attendant (male) to help me with a different seat. I needed to swich, as I need to have my legs lifted up otherwise the flight is really painful. I even told him I pay for any upgrades, but he said he can not do anything at the moment and he will get back to me later. He was quite rude as well. No smiling or showing much care. Well, he never got back to me. I tried to ask an other attendant ( female). She said they are out of space. She wasn't even trying to look around or try asking people at the exit to maybe switch. She just right away responded with a no, and left. Didn't even ask if she can help with anything. Later, when I got up for the bathroom, I looked at the economy plus section. There were only 10 people sitting in the approximately 50 chairs. Plenty of rooms. The food was great but I didn't have a choice as they ran out of chicken by the time they got to serve me. Some items were not available at the flight, as shown on the menu. There wasn't much English tv shows to choose from or maybe I am wrong for comparing Turkish to United or Delta. Overall I didn't have a good impression, but hey, you get what you pay for...right?"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Rverything"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "food was very good here, the vanity set had useful staff and the gave my three-year-old a special bag with toys etc."
Cons: "no problems"

Cons: "Unexpected $100 baggage fee for second checked baggage"

Pros: "Best flight crew I've ever had."
Cons: "A free upgrade to first class"

Pros: "Super comfortable"
Cons: "Every think was very better"

Pros: "Leg room"

Cons: "Good food, on time and semi comfortable seats"

Pros: "Everything was great. The crew was outstanding!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "So bad"

Cons: "First flight was delayed too much for me to make a connecting flight to Frankfurt. Had to ask twice to be rebooked. Had to connect through Chicago O'Hare and walk for miles there. Arrived in Germany 3 hours behind schedule."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was comfortable. And the food was very good."

Cons: "I am 5'4" and weigh about 110 lbs. I was seated between two very large men who could not fit into the cramped seating and caused me to sit with my legs cramped and no arm rest. One was drinking heavily and the other watching open on his phone both of which made me even more uncomfortable. To make it even worse my TV was broken and there was nothing for me to do but be miserable for an 11 hour flight. Worse trip of my life."

Cons: "Never made it and they knew several people were still in customs"

Pros: "The food was delicious."
Cons: "I missed my Lufthansa flight due to being parked away from the Frankfurt airport which caused us to be late, which caused me to be late to my already closely booked connecting flight. That was extremely inconvenient. Lufthansa was amazing at getting me a same day rebooking, but the UA plane I was booked on was a little older. I was already a bit sick with a head cold and the heating element was very dry heat.. it made everyone pretty miserable on the flight. I was a bit disappointed to have to be rescheduled off of Lufthansa."

Pros: "Crew, condition of planes, food all excellent"
Cons: "Connection at Frankfurt bad. Had to be unloaded from plane and put on buses and dumped at terminal. Extra 25 minutes plus customs and ran to make connecting international flight. They have a HUGE opportunity for improvement in the way they move people in Airport."

Pros: "Same as a above"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Sweet crew with a lot of patience."
Cons: "The plane was full of immigrants and they left a HUGE MESS everywhere. Half eaten chocolates, wrappers, cups and you name it strewn all over the floor and aisles. It was disgusting to sit through 10.5 hours of. Somehow though, they knew how to watch Baywatch."

Pros: "Selection of meals (veg / non veg), nice and polite crew, selection of entertainment options, availability of drinks and snacks on the plane in between meal service. Seats are decent in size and comfortable in the economy class, the aircraft feels like new, clean and fresh."
Cons: "The movie selection button on the screen is a bit hard to use and slow scrolling thru the titles. Nonetheless, enjoyed watching movies. Good variety of movie genres."

Pros: "You can't beat the German's at efficiency. Awesome!"
Cons: "Houston isn't their hub and I have to put up with United."

Pros: "Business class was comfortable."
Cons: "Baggage was lost for 3 days. Very poor customer service. Employees have a lot of attitude. Will NOT fly again."

Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Seats"

Pros: "Free wine; flight was on time; movie and TV shows are good; crew gives out water constantly. I prefer Lufthansa over any other airline."
Cons: "I do not like the big metal boxes that take away your leg room."

Pros: "I have always wanted to travel with Lufthansa and will do so in future too. For my wife it was her first and she loved it."

Pros: "Boarding staff was cooperative On time departures and arrivals"
Cons: "Crew in Lufthansa are racist. Don't want to elaborate here but trust me for this. Bad quality food. They don't even have sufficient food for everyone. I didn't get two meals on one flight. Loo's are not maintained. Crew too rude. Had called a flight attendant for service but didn't show up until an hour (exactly an hour). Later I had to get up and take it. Can write an essay on my whole journey."

Pros: "Without a doubt, the flight crew on this flight was amazing. They went out of their way to assist everyone and make sure that people had whatever they needed."
Cons: "The chairs were small, even though we upgraded to economy plus, and the outlets and my tv screen did not work. On a 10 hour flight, that's a big deal! It seems like I paid extra to get less. Terrible!"

Pros: "Good entertainment options"
Cons: "I got 2 vegetarian meals on this flight. The first one was so mushy that it induced my gag reflex. I managed one bite and no more. The second meal had some ravioli that was much better but still was heated unevenly. But at that point I was so hungry that I ate it anyway. The boarding was chaotic because all economy rows boarded at the same time"

Pros: "nice personality"

Pros: "Excellent all around.!"
Cons: "Only complaint is the comfort of the seats on Airbus 380-800. Not as comfortable as on other airlnes/planes, especially given 10+ hours flight."

Pros: "La tripulación muy amable y la comida muy buena ."

Pros: "Friendly service and good food."
Cons: "Long flight"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great A380 aircraft"

Pros: "Most all was good."
Cons: "The kids screaming!"

Cons: "The seats were very cramped. A little about my height, I'm 5'2" and had a difficult time with no leg room. I sat by the window which gave me a little more wiggle room but it was not the most comfortable flight. Also a note about being able to get up from the seat to move about. The other person in the row had to get up to allow me in and out and I still had to make sure not to pull on the seat in front of me just trying to get up out of the seat. Thankfully, I only had to get out twice through the whole flight."

Cons: "It was not Lufthansa but United Irlines. I wish it was Lufthansa."

Pros: "It was all together a pleasant trip."

Pros: "With German precision the crew worked the area. When I started to feel hungry they came with food. When I was getting thirsty, they delivered beverages. Overall, I liked Lufthansa and I would recommend them to others."
Cons: "There was an obstruction in the way of where my feet would go. I was on the aisle and the guy at the window seat had the same problem. Luckily, we had no one seated between us. We basically did the unspoken and we shared the foot space of the vacant middle seat."

Pros: "The on-board crew could not have been better......their professionalism, service, attentiveness was the best that I have experience in Economy class travel. The plane was clean, the toilets were nice throughout the flight. The seats were comfortable and noticeably wider than some other carriers offer. The food was MUCH better on Lufthansa flights that originate in Europe than flights that originate in the US. I will definitely fly again."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos, I have never, even in India, experienced less organization of a boarding process. Actually, there were no lines, just a crowd of passengers pushing and shoving towards two gates. This was made worse by the occasional golf cart trying to move thru this throng of passengers. Most dangerous was that the flow of passengers down the escalators was not regulated, when I reached the bottom of the escalator there was no place to go, I was pushed awkwardly to the side by passengers piling up behind me. I am 67 years old, and found this very unsafe to my self and others. I hope that no injuries occurred."

Cons: "I will never gonna buy a ticket here again because didn't even take me i lost all my money"

Cons: "This was actually operated by United and as usual united service food and quality was way below the norm. Very disappointing."

Cons: "The controls on movie screen did not respond to touch very well."

Pros: "Smooth Ride Stewardesses"
Cons: "Seats, The website would not let me upgrade to premium seats. I am also a Gold Star Alliance member and thought that I should have been able to have the Premium seating available, especially since there were vacant seating. But it was a great flight. The best airline flight I have had so far."

Pros: "The food was very good, as well as the crew"
Cons: "The assistant to the handicap people is very poor l missed my flight from Frankfurt to Cairo because of the poor assistance it took them for ever to transfer me to my connection although I letting them know the timing of my flight"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "the ease of booking the trip"
Cons: "The fact that my mother suffered a major medical episode which lead to her being hospitalized for six days in Germany has left me very bitter regarding our flight. I have flown Lufthansa before in the past and AWAYS had a wonderful experience. However, I have NOTHING good to say regarding Lufthansa/KAYAK/Vaymara regarding your missed flight/re-booking policy, nor working with anyone who speaks anything other than broken English at best. If it had been possible my mother and I would have completed the flight from Frankfurt to Houston on 5/15/16; however, my mother's medical condition precluded that from happening. I submitted hospital admission paperwork which I was told that the airline was requesting that I needed to get the forms in English. REALLY???? We were in Germany; the hospital admission and discharge paperwork are in German. Lufthansa is a German - based airline. Nobody speaks or can read German? The hospital did not offer an option of English paperwork and I could pay for translating the paperwork for a price and it would take a couple of weeks.. I had to re-book through another carrier after receiving clearance and a certificate that my mother was medically cleared to fly. The price was ridiculously high but I had no other option since your representative told me it would take 4-6 weeks to reach a decision. Thank you so VERY much for inquiring in to my satisfaction on flight from Frankfurt to Houston Intercontinental on Lufthansa. As you can tell....it was quite the experience."

Pros: "Frequent food and beverage service, plus 2 hot towel offerings."
Cons: "My headphones stopped working 1 hour into the flight, so I just watched movies with subtitles. No air vents, so it was really warm. I'm only 5'2" and felt really cramped in the seats."

Pros: "Crew were very helpful and kind . Really makes a difference"
Cons: "No new release movies , tv shows were also not good choices."

Pros: "Crew were attentive and the plane is always a great one to fly"
Cons: "Boarding was a joke as it's really bad add there is no real order and business class queue doesn't seem to have business people boarding but everyone"

Pros: "Everything was good."

Pros: "Plenty of room. Amazing Service. Very helpful, kind flight attendants. I was in economy but felt like I was flying in Business Class the entire flight."

Pros: "crew polite."
Cons: "Freezing cold !for 9 out of 11 hrs. On the outbound flt HOU-AMS snacks were complimentary...On return flt AMS- HOU they charged us. Not sure what the difference would be coming or going ?"

Cons: "United can learn a lot from Delta"

Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."

Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"

Pros: "Loved the smooth ride."
Cons: "Bathroom was pretty nasty"

Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight on schedule and good entertainment."
Cons: "Space is just reasonable on a long flight, even if there's seats more spacious that you could choose if you pay more."

Pros: "KLM never disappoints, the cabin crew was extremely kind and helpful!. The food was great, nice leg room in regular economy class, thousands of movies and tv shows...it was great!"
Cons: "Well there was a LOT of turbulence but no one can control the weather and shout out to the pilot for giving us such a smooth landing a rough weather!"

Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."

Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."

Pros: "Able to fly direct to ansterdam"
Cons: "Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines."

Cons: "Customer service"

Pros: "Nice to have a wrap for the snack."
Cons: "Would have preferred boarding by row - back of the flight first so would have been more organized."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Super delayed. Could have fixed the issue BEFORE we were sitting on tha plane for TWO hours"

Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My check in luggage was in very bad condition when I receive it. My clothes were all wet and they got bab by each other’s colour. Many clothes are not in a condition to wear now. Those were expensive and I had a big loss because of that."

Pros: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."

Cons: "Boarding was delayed a little due to weather as was takeoff. Cant blame them for weather but the connection was very tight."

Cons: "They stole my money"

Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."

Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."

Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."

Pros: "From pre-boarding, to boarding, to the food, and the attentiveness, everything was top notch! The cleanliness of the plane was only topped by the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "The flight was marked at almost 11hrs but ended up being only 9...not a negative other than it meant not spending as much time on board!"

Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."

Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."

Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."

Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."

Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"

Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"

Pros: "Same as above"

Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."

Pros: "Good and plenty of food available."
Cons: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."

Pros: "KLM fed a sandwich even though the flight was only 2 hours. The crew was pleasant. Getting through the Amsterdam airport to catch a connecting flight with only an hour to do so was no big deal. Airport staff was pleasant and helpful."

Pros: "Wonderful"

Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."

Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed that the flight didn't have wifi / USB):"

Pros: "I ended up getting home with less delay than originally predicted. I guess that's a good thing Also delta customer service was super polite and trying to help when I called"
Cons: "Delay again... seems to be pretty frequent on KLM flights at least on the ones I flew with in the past 4 years... this time it was 3hours wait due to a technical issue... no alternative flight option and we ended up getting a very old plane as a replacement. In addition people at info terminals are disorganized and not kind at all.."

Pros: "captain was great."

Cons: "With skyteam elite status cannot select free upgrade from economy to premium economy unless it is 30hrs before boarding for this code share which is actually a KLM flight"

Pros: "Having exit aisle made a huge difference in comfort Crew were EXCELLENT"
Cons: "Food was not very good Tasteless and rubbery"

Pros: "KLM food and service are great"

Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "...The transfer at JFK was terrible"

Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and because of this I missed my connection flight to Amsterdam"
