Cons: "For economy class, maybe more variety to meals?"
Pros: "Keeping time"
Cons: "There should be wi=fi."
Pros: "Seats were really comfortable, able to lean back further than most, with large screens and good entertainment options. Also liked that there were open areas on the plane that you could go stand up and stretch out for a while at."
Cons: "About halfway through the flight the bathrooms definitely needed cleaned. By the end of the flight they were disgusting, with toilets and sinks clogged and no tissue. I'm really surprised Emirates allowed this to happen, because everything else was great."
Cons: "Thx crew seemed s little slow (almost 2 hours) with getting us dinner for a very late night flight (10:45 pm). It just makes for not very much time to sleep."

Cons: "The food, seat, space, & baby Control"
Cons: "You didn’t change my ticket within 24 hours of booking and I have to loose that ticket I didn’t fly back hime"
Cons: "My flight went well as there was no delay and no issues during the very long flight from Nairobi to Washington DC via Dubai."
Pros: "Overall flight, crew service was excellent"
Cons: "Was enough"
Cons: "WiFi poor."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "The entertainment tv didn’t stay in the right position and the touchscreen didn’t respond all the time."
Pros: "Emerites is a great Airline"
Cons: "All well"
Pros: "Business class makes the entire trip much more comfortable."
Cons: "no negatives"
Cons: "I asked for water three times, three different crew members but never got the water during the flight to Dubai, when alighting that's when i asked for the water again from a crew who was manning the business class section and got it."
Pros: "Comfort and friendly crew and the food was very delicious and not forgetting the entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew were very professional and polite, entertainment was awesome all the latest movies, food was pretty good. Thanks for free wine and drinks. Crew were very kind."
Cons: "Though more comfortable than other flights like KLM, it was still a little cramped"
Cons: "Requested an aisle seat at the front or an emergency seat and got neither. I could hardly move my long legs. I was glad it was a relatively short flight. Is it just on flights to Kenya that passengers DO NOT receive the travel pouch?"
Cons: "Former travel to Dubai offered food vouchers. No vouchers given and the layover was over 5 hours and portions were smaller on the plane. Bad in flight entertainment screens."
Cons: "poor service"
Pros: "The boarding was quick."
Cons: "Attitude of crew Terrible food Outdated entertainment"
Pros: "I was upgraded to an exit row when the staff saw how tall ineas"
Cons: "Entertainment system control broken"
Pros: "I liked that there was live TV available on this flight."
Cons: "I don’t like that there is not and ovo-lacto vegetarian option available to people like me."
Cons: "Cabin crew were reluctant offering passengers liquids on board we had to go and find them to ask for either water or juice as it was a long Flight which took 15 Hours on Air"
Pros: "I really like the entertainment and the air cameras."
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "seating availability Food service"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, food excellent, and entertainment system fantastic."
Cons: "A 7kg maximum carry on weight is super low."
Cons: "Didn't have a good experience in Kenya, not with flight but at the airport. Went through hell. They need to improve on their customer service. I am quite sure I am entitled to bring whatever I want as long as it's legal . But there's lots of corruption and they will mess up your reputation. But at the end of the day they want me to bribe them. I was Really upset."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great!"
Cons: "There was no leg room at all in economy. My knees were in the seat of the person in front of me. Most of the food was terrible and I only ate the bread. The TV is on the back of the seat in front of you and is a touch screen. You have to touch pretty hard. So, every time the person behind me was scrolling, they had to hit my seat."
Pros: "The attention to my two nine year old kids. They enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "The washrooms are to few for the people on the flight. We were always queuing as the toilets were always occupied"
Pros: "Attentive flight crew and spacious interior"
Cons: "Food, food and food"
Pros: "Traveling internationally is grueling, but Emirates business made the trip easy. After my Nairobi to Washington DC flight, I was able to have a productive day instead of sleeping the first full day upon arrival like normal."
Pros: "Emirates allows you to start inflight entertainment as soon as you board and are seated. That makes any wait time more enjoyable."
Cons: "This particular flight was full. And I believe they may have been understaffed. I received my special meal but then the drink service didn't come around until most people were finished with their regular meal service. They didn't serve drinks and meals at the same time, for some reason. And the meal clean up took place way after everyone finished eating. It was an unusually long wait. This was surprising coming from an Emirates flight."
Pros: "This is my first flight out of Nairobi (have made 8-10 others) for which the airline boarded using anything other than a division between first & economy classes. Emirates boarded economy passengers using zones (A-F), which was more orderly."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Pros: "• Food was good •The flight was comfortable and I felt saved •The crew was very nice •The flight was cheap compared with service •The entertainment was excelent but you need to add more songs from Africa ."
Pros: "Customer service, food, the flight in general was good."
Cons: "I lost TV signal a few times and therefore wasn't able to watch the games I was interested in. But I understand this is beyond your control at times but the whole system would benefit from an upgrade. The touch screen sometimes takes a while to respond so making the process a little tedious."
Pros: "From the top to the bottom, everything was excellent except for..."
Cons: "...the boarding, which was somewhat chaotic. An announcement was repeatedly made that the final boarding call for the flight had been issued, and suddenly the entire assembly of passengers waiting before the gate stood up en masse and moved toward the gate, where we ended up standing for twenty or so minutes while the passengers were boarded in sequence according to seat assignment. I'm certain that Emirates has a protocol for gate announcements, but one of their employees certainly didn't know what it was."
Pros: "The crew, overall were very alloof and disengaged. Rarely did we hear "your welcome" after saying thank you. We were made to feel as if we were interrupting their real work."
Cons: "The crew needs to remember that how consumers feel is almost as important as price. There are other choices that for air travel. It's costs nothing to smile, or to say your welcome."
Pros: "I made it to my final destination safely"
Cons: "Not much overhead space for your bags, so we have to keep them at the bottom of our feet....i was travelling with a senior on a wheelchair and the idea of her going up and down the stairs into and out of the airplane wasnt so pleasing...the cabin crew could be easily mistaken for any other passenger becase of dress code..."
Cons: "When it is a very full flight and every seat is needed, the space for passengers is very tight."
Pros: "Good service good leg room swift boarding and off boarding"
Pros: "I enjoyed every thing."
Cons: "In Kenya we was waiting to get a seat from Dubai. That was not good."
Pros: "Overall everything was good."
Cons: "Poor check in services in Nairobi. I waited for 1 hour and half to get my boarding pass."
Pros: "The Crew were wonderful and tried in every way to make us comfortable."
Cons: "The crew wasn't very responsive"
Pros: "The good was good and the staff treated us with respect."
Cons: "When I reached at Dubai l could not get a seat to come to Boston as they had overbooked. But it was a blessing for me as I was given a free round trip ticket from Boston to Kenya to use within one year and for that I thank you."
Cons: "when I arrived at seoul, incheon airport, I found that one of my gulf clubs was broken. it was the fist time that the golf club broken. I was so upset"
Pros: "I flew from Nairobi to Dubai and then to New York. Very pleasant crew, beautiful plane inside and out, excellent food in the plane. Overall a very pleasant experience. Also the Airbus 380 is just superb. Such a big bird that one."
Cons: "I am personally opposed to entertainment. I see it as the devil and the world's substitute for true joy that is only found in God as he is revealed in Jesus Christ. So it is sad for me to see all the entertainment centered culture. It shows itself very much in the plane. Everyone with a screen infront of them to keep them entertained. Headphones to cut you off from the fellow next to you. Some very rotten movies on there too."
Pros: "Love flight with emirates every thing is good"

Good service

Better boarding system than just 4 zones. Within each zone, boarding needs to be done with specific rows at a time.

Check in was night mare the checking agent was extrude I will never travel with Qatar airways because of him Moayad god will punish him for this bad treatment he made my trip very sad

food could have been better.

I like the comfort. Food was ok, could have been lot better. Crew definitely needs assistance or training, very unprofessional

It was bad experience i has booking on business class Bombay to doha but they changed airline equipment and had to fly on couch. They promised to get me voucher at get but no voucher or any email Please call me to resolve this problem. Shilu patel 281 948 1724

It’s good, thanks for all team members

Excellent

Cons: "Everything was just great in their business class."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. very helpful and great services."
Cons: "While waiting in the check-in line, it would be better if one of the crew would come and ask the travellers if they have got everything. cause I had my Covid test and it was negative. However, they said that my final destination place won't accept my test. rather me waiting on the line that was not moving ahead at all, I could have sort things out some way. So, it would be nice if the crew would come to the passenger on the line just to make sure they have everything right."
Pros: "Very nice and accommodating crew!"
Pros: "Amazing service. Incredible comfort."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Qatar’s food is great! Feels like five star dining. Attendants are helpful and friendly."
Pros: "Everything."
Pros: "Entertainment and boarding"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Seat where comfortable and thank needed more leg space"
Cons: "Good was poor bcz going and back was same menu of choice of food."
Pros: "Q-suites are fantastic."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Premium boarding line was tied up by economy passengers and ground crew did not turn them back"
Pros: "Nice new plane. Good seats. Good seat space between you and person in front of you."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The insight service was good. Kind and welcoming attitude of the stewards are appreciated. There was no guile but genuine"
Cons: "Answers from the staff was felt by me from the time I checked in Dallas to Bangalore and back.I will travel again by Qatar airways only. Please buy the air India inc ."
Pros: "Great service, friendly and helpful"
Pros: "The on flight entertainment is great. It’s very accommodating especially for long flights."
Cons: "Onboarding was ridiculous. They merged two gates together with no instructions to the large crowd of people boarding the plane. We were scheduled to start boarding at a certain time and we didn’t actually board until 45 minutes later. When we asked the attendants when we would begin boarding and did they have any instructions they were extremely rude, laughing with one another and taking selfies. When we we asked for the third time they brushed us off with a time frame. It was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Gave food vouchers due to extended layover. Marché food quality is average at best."
Cons: "Biggest problem was late arrival, missing connection. Lateness caused by them at first, then a departing passenger caused further delay. But they were late to begin with. Next problem was their REFUSAL to give me an aisle seat. I reserved an aisle seat originally, aisle seats were available when I tried to change, but agent REFUSED to accommodate me with either aisle or window. Sat in middle with huge guy next to me. Very uncomfortable. Food was mediocre on this leg. Oh, and late departing AGAIN. Will seriously look for other options on next trip."
Cons: "Qatar Airlines charged us a 600 Euro fee for missing a flight even though we contacted them before to explain the circumstances beyond our control."
Pros: "Good service, clean aircraft, friendly crew"
Cons: "Qatar Airways Asian vegetarian hot meal is not as good as some other airlines. It lacks the asian grains, light spices etc."
Cons: "Screaming children; not the airliners fault"
Pros: "All of it was great!"
Pros: "Food OK"
Cons: "Massive delay over 15 hours! I was shocked. Once arrived, also luggage was delayed ADDITIONAL 7 hours"
Cons: "The seats were particularly narrow and uncomfortable on this flight. Quality of food used to be better."
Pros: "The food was good. The legroom was enjoyable."
Cons: "I checked two bags and had them marked 'fragile', as I had valuables in there that I packed securely. When I retrieved the bags on the carousel, the fragile sticker was mangled, and both items from both bags were broken. Pieces of art I can not replace. Also, it took over 30 minutes upon multiple requests for the attendant to acknowledge my need for assistance."
Pros: "This was car better than most flights I've been on in the US. Lots of leg room excellent entertainment system good service and customer care."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Wheelchair was assigned to me from terminal to inside plane. Crew was able to speak my local language. That was something awesome feel like home."
Cons: "Am satisfied with the services but free wifi was not there ;-)"
Pros: "Great on board bar"
Pros: "Actually I can't even explain everything is good"
Pros: "I had a great experience with overall trip."
Cons: "I was not very impressed with hostesses service. on the second leg of the trip. The boarding process was not organized at all. We have zone numbers but people just boarded at first come first served basis"
Pros: "The personnel were at the CAI Airport and in the plae were just wonderful. I hope i will have the same experience the second leg if the trip from DOH to DFW"
Pros: "The food on foreign airlines is so much better than on american airlines (they even offer something in economy class on short local flights)."
Cons: "The seat spacing on the 70-minute flisght was a little cramped - it would be even worse for a taller person than I (at 5'10")."
Cons: "I was Told the flight form Doha back to Houston was over booked so I had to get re-routed through another city. For a $6,600 business class ticket this is very bad form."
Pros: "Excellent service everyone was generous"
Pros: "Qatar airways 3 hrs short flight was spectacular at all levels"
Pros: "Qatar airways always seems to handle busy flights and crammed seats calmly, efficiently and on time. It's a long haul - 16+ hours, and if you have to go economy as a 6 foot tall person, their seats recline well, seemingly better than many. You have to plan your long layovers, and they do offer assistance with hotel transfers, but they don't advertise this very clearly - so do your homework before flying!"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "I thought the flight was fine :)"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Entertainment. Not all films have subtitle"
Cons: "Boarding staff give us wrong advice to make extra money from the passenger. They also pressurized us to decide quickly. our each check in baggage was over weight 1 KG or less than 1 KG due to faulty scale at home. Instead of giving us a choice or advice that you are allowed two more hand bags. They pressurized us to make one baggage over weight from all 7 bags and harassed us to do it quickly because they are closing counter in 20 minutes. That's how they charged me another $65. Also they lied on the counter that your seats are in a row but when i went into the plane our seats were separate. Lesson learned don't trust the person over the counter of Qatar airways."
Pros: "I travel from Sydney to Europe (UK and Greece) regularly. My experience with Qatar airways was fantastic: I highly recommend it. First of all, the travelling hours are a bit shorter (compared to travelling via Singapore or Hong Kong) probably because of the geography of the cities/connections and the corresponding flight times between Athens-Doha-Sydney. The aircraft was exceptional (I believe it was Airbus A380). It was a double-deck, wide-body and four-engine jet airliner. Cabin and economy class seats were very comfortable and more spacious compared to other aircraft. There was minimal turbulence, which is partially due to the type of aircraft: at least this is my understanding. The aircraft also had wi-fi (complimentary for the first 15 min) and one was allowed to use the mobile phone during the flight (except during take off and landing times). The flight attendants were absolutely amazing. Also, the crew was very understanding and friendly with children. Food was also excellent and in good portions. Overall there was high tech aircraft, excellent service and no delays. I will choose it again in the future."
Cons: "On the downside, I had a problem with my entertainment device during the whole flight: there was no sound, so I was not really able to watch any movies/TV.. The flight attendants tried to sort it out, but it was not possible. They kindly brought complimentary magazines and drinks/snacks, however it would have been much preferable if I could watch a movie or if free wi-fi was offered for the whole flight, as compensation.. My understanding is that this was not an option, due to problems providing free password..."
Pros: "Good though. But not too comfortable with indiscriminate change of seats. Was held up in Doha because my seat was changed."
Pros: "Food, crew, in flight services and entertainment were amazing. Definitely recommend this airline for trans-atlantic flights."
Cons: "I flew on the Boeing Dreamliner which is pretty loud. I recommend noise cancelling headphones or earplugs."
Pros: "What they get right: The planes are comfortable and the flight attendants are attentive and kind. The price is okay, and there are plenty of flights from Doha to Manama."
Cons: "What they get wrong- Taking the Doha to Manama flight is like riding the commuter bus from New Jersey to New York City in the U.S. You get there, but that's about it. The waiting area is too small for the number of flights and quantities of people processing through. Many passengers were sitting on the floor while awaiting their flights. Not classy. The boarding process is tedious, and, inefficient, with people cutting in line, others trying to re-negotiate seating while getting their boarding cards scanned, and others not allowing room for additional passengers on the bus that takes you out to the plane. They get on, and block the doorway, so that they can be the first off when we get to the plane. It seems like no one is interested in making this quick and easy, so we can leave on time. That's the other thing. How can a local airline, named for its country, not leave on time? We were delayed about 20 minutes, waiting on people. Just leave them behind! Stick to schedule!"
Cons: "Good was not good"
Cons: "Great experience"

Only one improvement needed. The boarding process was chaotic. After pre-boarding was completed, the entire remaining number of passengers (lots of them, big aircraft) were allowed to board without separating into logical groups or by row numbers. Slowed things down with crowded aisles, people trying to get by people trying to stow overhead luggage, getting situated, etc. Never had this happen in recent history on any other airline.

Great service, nice crew, 777300 is a great plane. They offer a nice Swiss chocolate at the end of the flight. This trip was very good - except for the check in process in Miami for my outbound flight

Slow service, difficult internet.

Cons: "chicken dinner was not tasty at all"

Pros: "On Board Service"
Cons: "Delays...Delays..."
Pros: "Staff and flight was really great. Everything went smoothly and on schedule. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The seating was almost unbearable. So small and cramped. Arm rest didn’t go all the way up so very hard to cuddle with my seat mate (my daughter). I couldn’t even put my arms by my side without pushing my seat neighbors off. Seat in front of me was in my lap. Hard to get out of seat to use restroom. Way to tight. Long flight from Boston to Zurich was so hard to bear. I understand making money...but this is ridiculous!!"
Cons: "Checked in online. Needed to drop my snowboard bag off. I had 2 hrs...got in the express line to drop bags with ticket. They kept taking people from every other line in front of us. Took 1 hr to drop a bag. Got through security line and told my boarding pass is no good. 30 min before flight. Back to Swiss. Have a meltdown and finally they help. Now I’m in Geneva and my bags in Zurich..."
Pros: "Very friendly and efficient Good food"
Cons: "Zürich airport early closing at night so difficult to check in and drop off luggage"
Pros: "Swiss service relayable"
Pros: "Flight is super short and was delayed Boarding is terrible - everyone jammed up and pushing in Just an average boarding"
Cons: "Plane was late Self checkin is not for everyone and good half of people did not know how to use the machine and it greatest delayed the process .. cattle is transported better !!!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The service was not great which surprised me for swiss. The flight attendant was absolutely not into work. The seats supposed to work.. wasn’t .. we had to switch the seats with no help and with the lights off. Awful .. of course they didn’t noticed so they didn’t woke me up for the breakfast. (And I’ve been asking for). Maybe was bad luck but that’s really ridiculous. During the flight they didn’t brought water or something we had to call them."
Pros: "My partner and I loved our first flight with Swiss from JFK to Zurich the chairs was amazing, we enjoyed the full bed and the entertainmnet screen was amazing to enjoy. The food was delicious and the service was amazing."
Cons: "My Partner and I was dissatisfied with our connecting from Zurich to Cairo. We expected the same flight but we were in basically in coach with little more leg room. The chairs barely reclined to a comfortable position. There was no entertainment, just a three and a half hour flight at the flight plan on a small tv hanging over. their was no differentiation between the economy behind us. just the food that was brought to us, other felt the same as well who were traveling in business with us."
Pros: "Swiss chocolate is always welcome!"
Cons: "The food in economy class was one of the worst i have ever got in a flight. The chicken was not cooked completely. One of the side dishes was impossible to identify, perhaps past mixed with bread crumbs, only breadcrumbs, who knows? Ver disappointing for swiss. You were doing so much better in the past..."
Pros: "Delay at airport was awful. Gate was not announced ahead of time. By the time it was everything ok the terminal was closed. Some people appeared to have couches while I did not. Gate was at the end of the empty terminal. Wifi pass expired and no artery was offered even though the flight was delayed. Passengers were made to leave the gate to recheck passports. My bags were searched twice and while I fully support security this was excessive"
Cons: "Provide vouchers in consistent manner. Provide wifi alternatives. Don't use an empty terminal. Offer more toilets and water fountains."
Pros: "lovely flight -left on time arrived 1 hr early. my earphones did not fit plane plug, the one provided did not fit my ears - slept instead,,,Excellent service..."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No tv's on each seat. Seats are. Dry thought and uncomfortable and snacks are terrible"
Pros: "The crew was entertaining and pleasant. The flight was short and easy."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled in the middle of the night the night before, forced me to find another flight and re-book my morning 6:45am flight tickets at midnight for next morning. Not fun."
Cons: "I'm only 5 months pregnant, barely showing, and the seat tray nearly didn't fit in the down position! So uncomfortable. Also the chicken sandwich was gross. The bread was gritty and dry."
Pros: "Professional polite crew."
Cons: "Seats too SMALL Food not eatable"
Pros: "Attention to details from flight attendants"
Cons: "The food was not to my liking except for the crackers, ice cream and water!!"
Pros: "plane was huge and clean. hour flight, was shocked to have service. Bravo!"
Cons: "gate number on ticket was different from where plane left from. Almost missed my flight."
Pros: "The veggie food option was delicious. The calzone for breakfast was miserable. The restrooms were kept clean and well-stocked. Flight delay to wait for incoming passengers resulted in others missing their connections in SF."
Cons: "They checked at the gate all our hand luggages to make sure we didnt exceed the 8 kilo mark. This is very cheap and only suitable for the low cost airlines. I expect swiss air as a higher class flight to turn a blind eye on this matter"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "I loved the timing of my connecting flights. Just enough layover time."
Cons: "There is no entertainment on this flight."
Pros: "It was a very short flight. Thankfully very short."
Cons: "I paid extra for extra leg room and there seemed to be no difference in leg room between business class and economy class."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and accommodating. I LOVE that we were given ice cream and chocolate - only wish I'd been given more chocolate. They came by with drinks often and made sure that we were well hydrated."
Cons: "The boarding process took a long time. I had to go through customs, then at the gate they checked my passport again and the line was VERY long. The process just did not seem to be managed very well. There were issues with the tv monitors; however, the crew handled it very well. I wish we had been given an option with the calzones - I don't like red peppers or tomatoes, and was not offered another option."
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "I have been flying to Asia on Asian airlines and maybe I have become accustomed to flights and crews that know how to manage a long flight. For example: The crew seemed tentative and untrained. Saw the crew once between the meal at beginning and the meal at the end. I wonder where they can hide for so long on a small plane? Too many announcements by the Captain -- shut up and fly the damn plane! Do you think the crew might replenish the toilet paper on an 8 hour flight? on another note: Seat spacing is adjustable - very close seats Overall--- underwhelmed"
Cons: "When getting our meals the flight attendants didn't ask anyone to move their seats back up so it was difficult to eat since there was no space."
Cons: "Small seats ,and temperature too hot"
Pros: "Flight attendants were sympathetic and helpful."
Cons: "Delay after the pilot ensured we would arrive on time with the delay."
Pros: "food, staff."
Cons: "We left late so I missed my connecting flight in Zurich, to barcelona. Had to wait around 5 hours. My friends were waiting for me in BCN and had no way to contact them!!! I enjoyed the flights with SWISS but i dont know if ill fly with them again."
Pros: "Onboard crew was great and communication was excellent."
Cons: "Gate communication was poor. Delay poorly explained. Boarding process very confusing."
Pros: "Service and staff were outstanding and would love to use them again!"
Cons: "All was great!"
Pros: "super nice crew-really friendly, accommodating, happy, all that sort of thing. really liked them and they're awesome!!"
Cons: "i am a regular sized woman, size 8, and a bit tall 5'9" and the seat felt wayyyy to small for me. couldn't put my hands naturally by my sides and the arm rests were too high to be comfortable, so i had to sit there with my shoulders held up the entire flight. was so sore afterwards!! also, the headphones barely worked (only one side, on the replacement as well!) and the entertainment system shut down twice."
Pros: "Everything from the lady in the counter to the Flight attendant, everything is meticulously thought, even the chocolate in the end :)"
Pros: "Very good. Good entertainment options."
Pros: "Flight Attendants friendly"
Cons: "Had to check my carry on due to size. Plane had reduced size and was a smaller plane."
Cons: "Large group of rowdy teenagers. The crew didn't ask them to calm down. Don't be shy!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seating"

Boarding stuff was bad!!!

25 minute flight. Crew was friendly and competent.

The departure was delayed by more than 30 min. Late arrival. Crew was fantastic!

Pros: "The crew and seats were both great"
Cons: "HAving live TV would have been great."
Pros: "The two people who were in charge of boarding the plane were especially nice, efficient, and accommodating. I really really liked them."
Cons: "The flight was too warm."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Paid for first class, expected something better than coach. Our food choice was a ham sandwich, there were better choices but the crew took them for themselves so nothing left for the 1st class passengers. Similar situation on our eastbound flight the week earlier. I doubt if Delta knows or cares that this occurs. After paying more than twice the coach fare, we expect something better than a ham sandwich on a coast to coast flight."
Cons: "More communication on the flight delay"
Pros: "New long haul service is a real improvement in quality"
Pros: "The crew on both legs of our trip were nice and accommodating."
Pros: "Flying Delta’s always a treat after our KLM connection. Everything is better! The staff in particular are always outstanding in comparison. Great job guys! :-)"
Cons: "Really not much. A few more media entertainment options perhaps."
Cons: "Vegan options"
Pros: "Just fine, beverage service was friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment system was out the entire flight. The flight attendants were just talking to each other as we left, even when I tried to say thank you."
Cons: "Seat assignment with Economy ticket."
Cons: "KLM staff at Schipol Airport in Amsterdam was rude and unprofessional. I will not fly with KLM again."
Cons: "I'd reserved seats in advance for both directions and was give seats farther back both directions when checking in at the airport."
Pros: "Crew ok . Seat not so comfy"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. Boarding was quick."
Cons: "Seat size in Comfort+ was still cramped. The person sitting next to me(in the middle was a fairly large (height not weight) and his arms and shoulders were pretty much flowing into my seat( I sat by the window). Leg room of course was fine. Very cold draft coming from the airplane(window?)"
Cons: "Crew did not make passenger in front of me bring his seat back up for landing."
Pros: "Check in process & text updates were awesome!"
Cons: "My flight to PDX was quite bumpy so food and beverage service were impacted, which I totally understand. However, the fact that I was not served at all, does not sit well with me! They had to stop service with only a few rows left to go due to turbulence but rather it just being a delay in service, the flight attendants never came back to check on the customers they hadn’t served even when the seat belt lights turned off. I really enjoy flying Delta but not this time!"
Cons: "Change my seat when I was boarding. I already had my seat # assigned before boarding. Sat next to a man with a strong body odor. I came down with a sore throat last night so I was feeling pretty bad. Then to endure a long flight with that smell which made my trip very uncomfortable."
Pros: "How does one describe spending 10+ hours in a metal tube approximately 18 feet wide at 30,000 feet with 300 of your closest friends breathing the same air while having the seat in front of you pushed back so you cannot adequately see the passenger monitor because it's too close to focus on as your knees are under your chin? Flying in "steerage" is not comfortable as humans get larger and airplane seats get squeezed smaller. Please unsqueeze! Cabin crew members were excellent. Other than that, Europe was great!"
Cons: "See other side."
Pros: "On the fight back I had enough space; good service; fine food. Great trip. On the way to Amsterdam, I sat next to a very overweight woman and her body hung over my seat. I couldn't move around enough and I ended up with a trigger point problem which immobilized me for 3 days and kept me from sleeping at night. It was very disappointing, since this was a family visit trip."
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "Free wine and spirits and food really not too bad in economy Very large movie and tv show library - something for everyone Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Overhead bins a bit small on this older 767-300"
Pros: "Newer plane. Friendly crew. Landed safely and on time."
Pros: "Attentive, respectful and nice crew, swift take off and landing and awesome views"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything went well"
Pros: "Easy, fast boarding. We arrived early too."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Entertainment was good and staff was pleasant"
Cons: "Delta assigns seats at boarding, miss when you could pick which seats you sit in. I bought my sisters ticket, hoping we would then be able to sit together but we both ended up in the middle in different rows."
Pros: "I dont like that you change my flight and I have to wait 8 hours at the airport to flight to Mexico City"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Pros: "clean. friendly. decent snacks."
Cons: "warm cabin. small seats with no head support. not enough drink cart passes."
Pros: "Great entertainment, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Middle seat with zero chance to switch."
Pros: "Wi-FI available (although I didn't use it)"
Cons: "No direct flight in the morning, so had to take two connecting flights, and leave home very early in the morning."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact they wasted two days of my trip with my son travelling from the U.S. to China because they didn't know about transit visa regulations. And so far they offered a 75 dollar voucher for participating merchants. Unacceptable"
Pros: "The crew has a good vibe, makes for a pleasant trip"
Cons: "First time for me to have delayed baggage, made me think that somebody is not minding the store."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Staff was friendly, and we got there safely"
Cons: "Really wished we had tv's like we had on our flight to SLC. It really helps with those who have anxiety to distract their minds. Wifi is expensive therefore I chose not to use it"
Pros: "Food was OK, ice cream at mid-flight was my favorite thing. I liked the choice of movies. Drinks are also good but why not include pure cranberry juice? It goes great with vodka."
Cons: "Boarding is ridiculous. Everyone who is not some kind of VIP is asked to line up and is treated like cattle. 5-feet tall woman holds above her head a sign with the zone currently boarding. Nobody can hear or see anything. Why not use the big LCD displays at the gate??? In the plane they had to restart the computer system as some TVs were not working and it took longer than they said. Toilets were kind of stinky and I could smell them from my seat on row 26. Blankets are way too thin for the blasting AC."
Pros: "crew was very respectful and kind"
Cons: "Flight was moved to a different gate, then delayed. We were given the absolute last seat in the plane that could not recline- not the seats I had selected before hand."
Pros: "Attendants were cheerful and extremely courteous."
Cons: "Legroom but that's because we can't afford 1st class. Hahahaha"
Pros: "Airplane was good, boarding was fast."
Cons: "Did not have the fruit and cheese plate."
Pros: "Entertainment is now free."
Cons: "This was the fourth first class leg of our overall trip and the first three flights on Delta were great. The attendants were pleasant and even fun. I have allergies and requested a special meal on all legs. No problem on the first three flights. All attendants approached me to confirm my allergy and the special meal. They were very polite. But on this flight, the attendant didn't speak with me about it at all. She tried to give me the regular meal. When I explained I needed an allergy free meal (mind you this was first class), I was told I could not get it and got no apology or other accommodation. Her attitude was take it or leave it. I found this interesting since on two of the other flights an announcement was made about another passenger with an allergy to peanuts so no one could have them on the flights and the attendants were very concerned."
Pros: "Loved everything, the meal was good, spacious seats and friendly staff."
Cons: "One of the men working the desk at the gate was rude & condescending to me. The other gate agent who was having us board (he was an ethnic man) was friendly & excellent."
Pros: "Pilot was hot."
Cons: "4 hour maintenance delay. Arrived at 2 am, after boarding a different plane."
Pros: "Ditto from above"
Cons: "Ditto from above"
Pros: "Flight was the best we sat right behind first class so it wasn't a long wait to deplane. In flight entertainment was great to with a wide selection of movies to watch"
Cons: "Nothing was bad about the flight sorry"
Pros: "Great crew and aircraft"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "No food. Only snacks and very good snacks"
Pros: "Again, despite poor flight schedule I made it on my connecting flight and it all worked out in the end."
Cons: "Again, Kayak should allow at least 2 hours of transfer time when booking flights through LAX. I had to go from one terminal to another AND go through immigration and security. In order to make sure I had enough time to make the connecting flight, I didn't check in my luggage which lead to me having to minimize liquids and pastes in my luggage (no vanilla extract or tequila). Also while making the transfer I felt rushed and stressed out. I might search for tickets using Kayak but I would not buy tickets directly from Kayak if my route involves a transfer at an airport that I am not familiar with."
Pros: "On time and very smooth boarding"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Severe turbulence and many of the Egyptian passengers didn't understand the announcements and were getting up"
Pros: "Nice people"
Cons: "Some games for kids"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The crew and snacks"
Cons: "They take the headphones about an hour before landing which isn’t ideal."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "Poorly equipped aircraft. No charging stations. No video of any kind. Pitiful food offerings. It's a four hour flight. Gotta do better."
Pros: "The person sitting next to me in the aisle seat moved so I had a window seat and free access to the aisle so I could use the bathroom when I wanted which let me stay hydrated on the plane. This was great. Crew was overall pretty responsive and helpful. Never a line for bathroom"
Pros: "Crew was kind but really bad quality price, bad food, no entertainment, lot of delays..."
Cons: "All"
Pros: "we left two hours late due to some security mess up. all had to exit, redo security, e.t.c. crew was nice, but info was poor, service to travelers was poor. with 2 hour delay they could have given snacks, drinks. instead the crew mostly disappeared"
Pros: "Seating, interior and menu"
Cons: "My previous flight was late. Flight attendants didn’t know how to guide me to my next gate as I was late"
Cons: "My 2 bags haven't arrived from Sunday 6 January till now (10 January) and all my winter clothes plus other important things are in it. I check every day with lufthansa call center but still no progress."
Cons: "Business class had economy seats which is not what you expect especially for an overnight flight"
Cons: "It was Air Canada. Terrible service. Staff needs education on where to take travelers thru the immigration locations. Wasted time going to different locations and time is an essentence! Too many changes of staff from one location to another when it came with wheelchair assistance. One staff was on her personal phone!!! Had 3 different changes of hands then still did not get us to the right terminal, had to run to make the flight! Is that how you treat a 86 years old traveler?"
Cons: "The temperature was too warm. With a full plane there is a need for more air circulation. The selection of movies was old, there weren’t enough new movies."
Pros: "Lufta Hanza canceld the flight"
Cons: "Boarding took longer than it should, flight left after scheduled time."
Pros: "The flight was very good"
Pros: "Good flight...excellent landing."
Pros: "Cabin crew hospitality and service were amazing"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Prompt, great crew"
Cons: "No power ports, entertainment options"
Pros: "We had more room with a 2-seat array in the middle of the plane. It was more comfortable than the 3 seat array."
Pros: "staff was friendly and service in general was good"
Cons: "Food was not good , Chairs was not comfortable"
Pros: "The staff is on point classy folks the stewardess, are very nice and and prompt."
Cons: "The food is terrible extremely bland and no flavor. Needs to maybe be revamped"
Pros: "No thing at all"
Cons: "1- the aircraft from cairo to munich was so small that they didn’t allow the carry on baggage and I had to put it with the check in baggage. 2- the special meal ( muslim meal ) that I ordered was a veggie meal !!!!! With no meat or chicken at all , apparently they don’t know what the meaning of a muslim meal is ! It means to have halal meat , we are not vegetarians ! 3- my baggage didn’t arrive to the airport and I filed a report and was told that I will have them tomorrow and now after four days the baggage didn’t arrive yet and I was told that one of them is missing !!!!!!! I can’t hate them enough."
Cons: "Walking under rain from the plane to terminal. Not as good as Lufthansa was some years ago. Old planes."
Pros: "Staff was consistently professional, courteous, and good-natured. The seats were fairly comfortable for economy. The food was perfectly fine. Movie selection was very good. Overall very comfortable flight that left and arrived on time!"
Cons: "The business class seats which are a lot more costly than economy seats are no different than economy seats. Same seat and on a 5 hour flight they are awful. The only difference from economy is that the middle seat is left empty....a help toward comfort, but far short especially when the price difference is factored in."
Pros: "Breakfast should not be served 4 AM Cairo time, 40 minutes after boarding"
Cons: "no tv and long flight. Food was terrible."
Pros: "Was on time all the way, food was OK service was fine"

Cons: "No entertainment during the whole flight at all."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seat was very narrow"
Cons: "Seats with no headrest and no entertainment"
Pros: "You always have the best looking flight attendants. After a year in Egypt it was refreshing to see something other than black haired woman. The food was great as always. Keep doing what youre doing. Thank you Olivia."
Pros: "Staff"
Pros: "Surprisingly tasty breakfast."
Cons: "Online check in didn't work. The site kept telling me I needed a visa although I chose the option that stated I had an ESTA. Also mt destination country was not in the list of countries and there was no way to fill it in. The check- in agent in Cairo was cheeky and unhelpful. I was told I couldn't get the aisle seat assignment that I had selected online when attempting to do the online check in. The crew also stated I couldn't switch to an aisle seat because " we are completely booked" although all 3 rows in front of me had empty aisle seats all the way from Cairo to Frankfurt so I was stuck in a middle seat which the person in front completely reclining their seat for 4 hrs. At 5'10" it was not only uncomfortable but a painful flight. Things improved somewhat from Frankfurt to Miami but was still pretty tight due to the reclining seats. Luckily I got an aisle seat on that leg and the middle seat next to me was open. There was no entertainment on the Cairo to Frankfurt leg."
Cons: "Very small narrow seats in business class on this flight."

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Every thing is excellent"
Pros: "Nice trip"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Friendly, professional staff"
Cons: "Personal space too small"
