We sat on the plane, by the gate, while the crew called the Istanbul Flight Control to figure out when our plane could arrive. This flight had been scheduled for weeks; I would think they could plan the arrival time to be the ACTUAL arrival time."

Cons: "Food was terrible. Far from what usually TK is expected to offer on an short international flight"
Pros: "Food"

Pros: "Comfortable cabin temperature, food was great."
Cons: "Not sure whether it was because my flight was short haul, but the plane didn't have in-seat entertainment system (i.e. TV screen for movie watching). The first half of my journey was delayed by 1.5 hours, which meant that I had to rush from the gate I landed in (after the lengthy airport bus ride from the plane to the gate) to my departure gate for my connecting flight, which was already on final call. I found out after my journey that TK is apparently notorious for its flight delays."
Cons: "The tv did`nt work, both mine and my hosband. The seats were small and crowded."
Pros: "The flight from Amsterdam to Istanbul was amazing and one of the best one I have ever had. Although I was too late to ask for vegan food, for this particular flight our of 4 flights (2 from Amsterdam to Tel-Aviv and 2 back), I had a vegan option, which was excellent."

Pros: "One price no extras, good service"
Cons: "The bloke sitting next to me."

the economy seats are really cramped.

Cons: "Luggage was not received. Now being told it will take up to 5 days! Unacceptable performance"

Cons: "Viaje corto"
Pros: "Seat is small"
Cons: "On time boarding"
Pros: "Horrible seating, boarding was a mess, not sure what flight to get on!!"
Cons: "Don't fly United"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it with me."
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on-time. Flight attendents were pleasant and helpful. Food portions and choices were good, and Lufthansa is always generous with drinks. Good value for money on Lufthansa."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, as clear instructions were not given about which group was boarding when and where to line up. Also Lufthansa did not do a good job managing carry-on bags, so that it took way too long to load people and many bags were left over once overhead bins were full. Seating area is cramped in economy."
Pros: "Was nice and pleasurable"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Lovely crew"
Cons: "Airport is too hot"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight with plenty of food, drink, entertainment and good service. Flight left on time."
Cons: "The flight departure time was too close to the arrival time so we ended up running thru the Frankfort airport."
Cons: "Waited an hour after boarding in the plane."
Cons: "We booked our plane reservations through Kayak . My sister booked my reservation along with hers at the same time. Kayak put us on different planes at different times on our return flight back to the USA. I had assumed we were flying together ( sisters with the same last names), so I showed up at the airport to find out that I had missed my first flight. I already had a boarding pass for the next flight, but Kayak had canceled me and booked someone else in my seat. No more seats in economy and I had to pay $1750. Euros for another ticket. Why would 2 passengers flying together and booking together be put on different planes and different times. We will NEVER use Kayak again!7"
Pros: "Overall experience was great. Crew was nice, good food, boarding went smooth, flight was on time."
Cons: "This flight went well, crew was nice, flight was on time ."
Pros: "Pleasant flight all around."
Pros: "Staff were amazingly helpful n friendly. Food was yummy."
Pros: "No delay and the landing is smooth"
Cons: "Boarding seamed inefficient. Loaded handicap onto separate vehicle in middle of us boarding, so it stopped our process. My seat didn't recline even though it had a button. No in flight entertainment?! At all... Got a crappy breakfast omelet that i didn't want to put in my stomach."
Cons: "1 person working the service desk. I had a question about our connecting flight from Frankfurt and I was told to call the 1-800 number. When I went to check my bag the woman was very rude and asked me "why do I think I can check two bags?" and questioned my Star Alliance premium silver status, demanding I show her my card (I have no card). My friend was flying with me and she was told that her carry on, mind you had flown to and within europe, was too big for the overhead storage and she had to pay 90 euros to check it and the woman held her boarding pass and wouldn't give it to her. we waited in line at the service desk for over 40 minutes so that she could pay. We arrived to the airport 2.5 hours early to eat and shop for souvenirs. We barely made it in time to get to our gate because of the inefficiencies of Lufthansa. 1 person working a service desk for a large airport is unacceptable, especially when they are 8-10 waiting to scan your baggage and not helping out at all. I had a wonderful flight to Europe on Lufthansa and was absolutely appalled at the attitudes of the airport staff and their lack of customer service."
Cons: "Boarding mix up, which was completely Lufthansa's responsibility, delayed my flight to Istanbul for one hour which caused my missing my connection with another airline. This in turn cost me the original flight and a new ticket purchase of at an exorbent price."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great service both before boarding the plane and while in flight. The check in line was out of control, but lufthansa staff members ensured that I could still make my flight."
Pros: "priority boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "aisle bulkhead seat: curtai separating business class from economy was hanging over my legs."
Pros: "Boarding was fast Crew was polite"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board!!!!!!"
Pros: "Air dolomiti - great service, prosecco in a real glass and with small sandwich provided."
Pros: "Afterall I did get rice iso pasta."
Cons: "Cold. My chair was bumped because us was just a little bit broader in the gangway than the other chairs. (54c) There is no possebility fot ordering foid for me: diet is without grains at all and without sugar at all."
Pros: "We were well taken care off for a short flught"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Crew was more understanding. Placed us to row 18...emergency exit."
Cons: "Checked online from row 21 to 6. Got a new ticket whilst boarding to 25: last row. Explanation...otherwise the plane was not able to go in the air...absolute bullshit. With my weight and of my fellow members better to let us in the front.. Row 6 was given to a miles & more client..."
Pros: "Everything else."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic."
Pros: "Food and beverage service was excellent on these Star Allisnce international flights booked by United but operated by Lufthansa."
Cons: "Leg room in economy is inadequate for international flights. Seats had no cushion left in seat bottoms. It was like sitting on cement."
Pros: "Plane not full so we hat an extra Seat"
Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process to in flight comfort."
Pros: "Smooth boarding and flight, fun snack (cakes on a plane!), relatively quick and easy."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to complain about for European commuter flights."
Pros: "That was the best airline meal I've ever eaten. It was a lightly curried chicken. Outstanding. Extremely fast boarding. Boarded entire airplane in less than 15 minutes. Nice selection of movies and audio. All of which you could stop, pause, fast forward, and rewind."
Cons: "No reading lights. No attendant call button I could find. Not much air volume. That pesky lack of leg room. Short seat belts."
Cons: "Small plain and food was very bad"
Pros: "Crew was beyond standard. Very nice and friendly and always accommodating."
Cons: "They ran out of vegetarian meals."
Cons: "Service, always delay"
Pros: "The food was nice and the stewardess were professional."
Cons: "My ticket didn't specifically say I'm not allowed to have check-in luggage, so I needed to pay extra for that. I also got too little transfer time and barely made it because my flight arrived late. Then, my luggage got lost during the transfer, so I had to wait for 5 hours, which made my plans a mess. Overall not satisfied with my flight"
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Decent legroom. Crew pleasant. Food was very good especially for a very short flight."
Cons: "I did not know I had purchased economy light ticket. With this you can only carry on 18 pounds and must check and PAY to check any other bag. I looked at my reservation from Vaysms and did not see notice of this. Surprised that one hour trip at this price , well over $200, was in this category. Also trying to buy the option for the bag on phone was difficult. Whole page with options would not show and getting English version was difficult probably because page would not fit on screen."
Pros: "Our flight out of Amsterdam was roughly 30 minutes late. Since we were connecting to an International flight to return to the US there was no possibility we would be able to get to the International terminal through security and board our flight in the time available. So, Lufthansa staff met the connecting passengers as we disembarked, shuttled us via bus to the International terminal and ensured we made our connection. Finally, for airline food it was quite good (Vegan)."
Pros: "Upgrade to business class. Staff was accommodating"
Cons: "Seats were situated next to the bathroom"
Pros: "Safe and efficient transportation."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't functioning so there weren't any viewing options presented. The crew failed to mention that the United app provides movies on your phone."
Cons: "The narrow seats: it is not fun to travel with four elbows in your ribs. Try it some time."
Pros: "The crew was great, very friendly and attentive. Sitting in Economy plus is acceptable comfort wise. Captain was very communicative when there was a mechanics issue and delay, much appreciated."
Cons: "United check in desk was unnecessarily long wait, other airports/airlines have a better flow. The screens on the seat backs on 767 are ridiculously small and stuttery. The main meal was not very good, pasta sauce was gross, could've done better with prego."
Pros: "We arrived 15 minutes early, which is always great!"
Cons: "They ran out of the chicken for dinner and only had manicotti left, which was horrible! No apologies for running out of 1 of the 2 options. The audio was horrible. In order to watch the movies, I had to hold the cord in 2 places in the exact right manner, or it would cut out and there would only be silence. Not fun trying to maintain that position for 9 hours."
Pros: "Staff attentive. Came by very frequently."
Pros: "We cheked in on line At Amsterdam airport at the drop of lugage was a nightmare Line out the door wich made us almost missing the plane"
Cons: "We cheked in on line for our flight Amsterdam Boston Ariiving at 5.05 AM for our first flight to Frankfurt at the lugage drop of desk There was a line out the door wich made us almost mis the plane At the gate they had problems with my carier on The same carier on is traveling with me for more than 15 years and never denied plane acces Result all my creditcards/money and important documents where not longer withs us So we could not buy a drink or food at two airports There was plenty of space in the overhead compartments above our seats That part of our experience was very bad Tnx"
Pros: "The flight was relatively empty, so I got to stretch out across three middle seats and sleep for the entire duration of the flight. The crew did a wonderful job of serving the food and clearing away very quickly. They were very friendly overall."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't the best I've seen -- but I barely had a chance to use it, so I'm not complaining."

Cons: "Sandwiches could be better"
Cons: "there was a problem with special assistance on the connection flight. Nobody was waiting at the end..."
Cons: "Really nice meal with Aegean airlines."
Pros: "Seat comfortable."
Cons: "Wasn’t able to check in on line so I had to check in at the airport. I walked up yo the counter, the customer service lady was on the phone. I had to wait for her to get off. When she did she told me I could check on line. She gave me conflicting info."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful, the plane left on time and landed on time"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Leg room. Hardly any for a person 6' and above"
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "the pilot was conscientious of turbulence and avoided and warned us."
Cons: "So Aegean Air, booked two separate tickets on my return flight without me knowing. There fore my luggage is in Athens and not in my final destination of Cairo. If they would have told me to pick up my luggage in Athens and recheck it, that would have been great. Furthermore, there was NO aegean air"
Pros: "Roomy seats and good food"
Cons: "Terrible customer service. Rude and unhelpful. They refused to do a spelling change on my name and forced me to purchase a second ticket. The flight was 25+ minutes late taking off due to lack of organization at passenger check-in. It really is a shame that Agean is pretty much the only option to Istanbul (IST) from Athens."
Cons: "The check in staff at the front desk were extremely rude and forced me to check and pay for a bag that was a carryon."
Pros: "Wider than average seats and a nice meal."
Cons: "Plane was not near the gate & we had to ride a bus to the plane."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than 2 hours without having any announcement nor a reps to tell you what was going on or when is the new departure time. The aircraft is very small, old, narrow seats, delay in boarding and unboarding."
Pros: "Crew very helpful and happy to assist Good communication"
Cons: "Late boarding Late gate change Too many people with large carry on bags that wouldn’t fit into storage bins"
Cons: "Everything. Our flight delayed that can happen. But what can’t happen is the total lack of service. Shame No wonder Greece is bankrupt. Zero zero"
Cons: "Gate agents were overwhelmed and incredibly rude. We of course didn't make connection. Lost our luggage. And now waitingbto board at 4:30 am. Just avoid. I fly a lot and they have topped my list of airlines to avoid."
Pros: "I will definitely do this trip again , I loved this trip so much unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to visit the islands but that’s a must . The people were very nice , the majority spoke english so you won’t have a problem going places and asking questions . Food was great and reasonable. I will definitely do this again !!!"
Cons: "I went in the end of March still a little cold."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. I was re-routed and never told why."
Pros: "Service, food, entertainment was good! Plane wasn’t full so made a more comfortable trip."
Cons: "Had to wait over an hour before take off for repair. But happy they were conscientious about fixes."
Cons: "≈"
Pros: "That they use Greek products is really makes the experience for me. Friendly staff."
Pros: "I enjoyed it, having a window seat in front of the plane. Time (also) flyes fast when you have a good time looking forward to your holiday in 'paradise' on Crete Island. The vieos from Crete were excellent."
Cons: "There was a 20- minute- delay due to arriving a bit later than expected from Athens. I never get bored at an airport, though."
Pros: "The food was nice and they offered Greek products which made the experience more fun."
Cons: "We thought we had the right sized bags, but must have missed the weight restriction (and had to pay). In the future we'll be keeping our carry-on bags under 8kg."
Pros: "I was tricked into not having checked luggage by your website. I had to pay for checked luggage. Your site is responsible. I should receive a reimbursement for this incident."
Pros: "Excellent AEGEAN staff, polite and helpful."
Pros: "We liked that there was food offered on such a short flight and complimentary wine! The crew was also really nice."
Cons: "There was a 45 minute delay on our flight"
Pros: "The crew was generally ok. Governed again by Aegean's old fashioned standards where crew has to be female almost fashion models, but this has nothing to do with the crew who was very professional and courteous but with the hiring policies of the company instead. The food was generally very well cooked (but ... see negatives section)"
Cons: "The flight was from 2-5am (local destination time). The company/captain/crew made the decision to have the lights on during the whole flight. The service of drinks and refreshments had to stop for some minor turbulence (I've had much worse where service was uninterrupted). We had to wait until 30 minutes before landing to be served food. It wasn't clear if this was the company's way of apologizing for the interruption of service. They served us a full course dinner with baked pasta with cheese and beef at 4am. I found that to be quite random, disorienting and inappropriate. There was no entertainment options provided on flight"
Cons: "Overbooked our flight, charged way too much for baggage, clueless employees"
Pros: "The food was good. The flight attendants weren't overly friendly but I didn't mind. No problem checking in or claiming my suitcase."
Cons: "The flight boarded about 45 minutes late, and none of the employees at the desk at the gate bothered to tell anyone why, or when an estimated real boarding time would be. Flight was pretty warm as well, and seats were tight even for the 120 pound person I am. No entertainment, but they did show a map of where we were which was nice."
Pros: "I am from Chile and I really appreciated the tasty red wine offered with dinner."
Cons: "Everything was ok. Staff are nice"
Pros: "The cabin crew was extremely helpful and patient with those passengers who were struggling to place possessions in overhead bins. While leaving the aircraft, I was able to call out to the captain that it was an excellent flight and he responded with a big grin."
Pros: "Staff is helpful in the plane, on the ground and on thephone. Ahead of time."
Cons: "Tehran station staff need more trainig and need to be overseen"
Pros: "The service was excellent."
Cons: "The fact the passenger behind me needed me to sit up straight so he could eat mad me feel bad. I suppose entertainment is not a big thing nowadays with all the choices we have with smart phone's and tablets, so not so much a big deal. But with space itn is a big deaI. I reclined my seat and Icould feel my seat on top of someone's knees. So i sat up and struggled to sleep. I suppose in a sleepy haste I reclined my seat. I was awaken to a gentleman asking me to sit my chair up so he could put his tray down to eat his dinner. I felt horrible."
Pros: "Clean Elegant Polite"
Cons: "I would like if you call me and I tell you. 972-508935554"
Cons: "40 minute delay due to traffic at destination airport. Not Aegean's fault. Pilot kept us informed. Very nice job."
Pros: "Great airline and a star Alliance member, will fly again for sure"
Pros: "first they announced 10 min delay, then they could not find the crew, after they appeared delay was extended to 45 min we left about 50 min late. gained some time in flight and arrived 35 min late. first batch of luggage came out relatively early and then there was a break of over 20 min before the luggage started to come out again, just as if somebody decided to have a coffee break."
Pros: "Good food and beverage service on a short duration flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a little cumbersome, having some reading materials would help."
Pros: "It was inexpensive"
Cons: "Could not get seats selected The seats are really tight"
Pros: "The flight was excellent. Thank you"
Cons: "when I booked the ticket , I didn't notice that a baggage that I send would cost extra money and had to pay 45 dollar at the airport. I recommend to write it more big and clear on the booking formula."
Pros: "Pretty good service from the crew. That's about it."
Cons: "Some of the tiniest most uncomfortable seats I've been on. I did not realize that Aegean was a budget airline going to a third world country (Greece??!). Flight was late but they pretended that it wasn't (45 minutes)"
Pros: "Amazing food!!! All free! Amazing food and amazing wine for free! I love Aegean they are the best best best."
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and courteous"
Pros: "The same wonderful Greek hospitality you're love on a plane. Smooth passage through security, smooth boarding process, and alight atmosphere on board. American airlines should take notes."
Pros: "Prompt , on time flight sched"
Cons: "Havas customer service reps are not warm. Just doing their job, no.extta mile...can be rude at times"
Pros: "Quick, straightforward, only a little late."
Cons: "The hot shuttle bus. They really need to turn on the air conditioning!"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling."
Pros: "Overall booking and airport was ok. Food was also actually quite good."
Cons: "A comfort of the seats... well its economy class in the end. Entertainment was just dreadful - small screen with visible pixels - I was unable to watch any movie."
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "Shirt flight but well catered, boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "Not lots of legroom but adequate for an hour long hop. It was cold on board and also had to board via steps from outside"

Pros: "Good flight, very attentive crew."
Pros: "Food and staff behaviour"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."
Pros: "Norhing"
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
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”)."

Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
Pros: "Cabin crew were very professional."
Cons: "Aircraft returned to gate due to fault and was delayed for 45 min."

Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Pros: "Delayed flight but staff apologized as for safety reasons."
Cons: "Very late arrival"
Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk. No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."
Cons: "Crowded seating, 20-year old video system, headphones that did not match the two-jack system, lackluster service in flight. Generally my experience with KLM has been good, but this was well below average."
Pros: "Consistently high standards"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful personnel."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the staff were lovely. Online check was very simple and easy to navigate."
Cons: "The amount of extras you have to click no to while checking in online."
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "No proper info regarding cancellation. Staff was unfriendly and abruptly responded to passengers."
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pros: "Staff both at the airport and in the plane were professional and welcoming. Depsite short distance sandwich and drink were offered."
Cons: "Nothing to be honest . All positive."
Pros: "Professional, welcoming and very friendly crew, well-maintained aircraft, comfortable seat and good food. Keep up the good work, KLM."
Cons: "Not much to comment on here."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Pros: "Staff at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."
Cons: "Elbow room is a little bit awkward and I didn't get to sit next to my fiance WE will still definitely recommend KLM though!"
Pros: "The crew were lovely and welcoming. We was given snacks and drinks on the flight which was great. Take off was a bit delayed but boarding was smooth. Couldn't complain about the comfort as was only just over an hours flight."
Cons: "There weren't too many options. The movie selection was very limited and the tv show were over 20 years old in some cases"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."
Pros: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "lack of meal options"
Pros: "Loads of leg room"
Cons: "Loved everything"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and accomodating, plane was clean and boarding amd disembarking was efficiently handled."
Cons: "55 minute delay was not welcome."
Cons: "Luggage (being handled by Air France in Basel) was first marked as delayed... nothing of the flight was in the end put on the belt and instead dropped off at Lost and Found. Ridiculous service since this was in no way announced to the people waiting for their suitcase."
Pros: "Overall very nice flight, even comes with free drink and snack"
Cons: "I missed my flight because of MU"
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Good food. Decent leg room at my seat. Good crew. Flight was on time. Good magazine on the flight for entertainment."
Cons: "They didn't give any napkins out with the food which was weird."
Cons: "I wasn't sitting next to my partner and we sat on the Tarmac for 45 minutes after the flight was already delayed by 30 minutes."
Pros: "Leg room. Smiles of the cabin crew."
Cons: "Not enough selection of Electronic Dance Music. Lol!"

Nice,o time,and great foods and services.

The cabin crew was friendly. But boarding takes forever and the flight gad long delays on both inbound and outbound flight

Pros: "La ponctualité."
Cons: "Variété des boissons proposées."
Pros: "Good aircraft, good service, on time, eventless"
Cons: "There are two types of foot-rests, both are a nuisance for people with long legs. The one popping up from below one's seat is extremely hard to put back in place. The metallic one folding down from under the seat in front cannot be secured back and is always in the way if the passenger needs to stretch his/her legs. This seems to be a new appliance, and I jut wish they would do away with it altogether. More is not necessarily better."
Cons: "food"
Cons: "Crew on the ground was very rude"
Cons: "Tell me i would misst the next flight and that my beg will not go to the final airport."
Pros: "Boarding procedures and crew were top. Wines and beverages excellent and even in super economy water was served several times"
Cons: "The food could have been much better, should consider doing everything organic. As it was, the chicken in the meal was awful, the dessert terrible. The rice in the salad hard, almost uncooked. The only good quality food was the bread and the cheese"
Pros: "Late departure, dirty, staff not friendly."
Pros: "Great food and friendly crew."
Cons: "Seatback system was old and not very functional."
Cons: "There was no entertainment available."
Cons: "Crew forced me to change my upgraded comfort seat to accommodate a 12 year old who they knew was going to be airsick. So I spent the first half of the flight next to a vomiting girl. Only after I asked to file a complaint, they allowed me one of two empty seats in premium. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "Multiple crew members paid constant helpful attention to my mother (88yrs of age) during boarding, deboarding and throughout the entire flight. Thank you!"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and boarding efficient I lucked out with first class"
Cons: "Poor service. Terrible food. Aging aircraft. Terrible in-flight entertainment system. Really not good AirFrance."
Pros: "The crew was efficient and friendly. The plane took off on time and landed on time."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and tedious. People still crowd around the boarding area despite there being row for the zones. Why they don't board from back to front is beyond me. The food was mediocre at best."
Pros: "The transfer times were excellent"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was awesome"
Cons: "It's awfull to sleep. Very unconfortable."
Pros: "Crew was nice movie selection was good."
Cons: "Plane was late which caused a 5 hour layover in Paris CDG. Food not very good. Entertainment system clumsy to operate."
Cons: "Flying back to US, passsengers get charged for their luggage. Which this is not informed to us, neither On our email nor when we were checking ( for free) in Us"
Pros: "Flight attendant Ms. Sophie Picard made every extra effort to try to find a meal when they had run out of Business Class meals. She made up for the uncomfortable seating in Business Class."
Cons: "Business class seating on the AirBus 318 is very cramped."
Pros: ". Budget airline with no legroom or extras"
Cons: "See above. Nothing specific to like."
Pros: "Very good male crew member. Pilot genuinely apologetic for the delay."
Cons: "After running due to a 1 hr 10 min change over between flights boarding didn't prioritise anyone but I got on fine. Only to be told at the departure time that there was a problem with the baggage hold and we were delayed. In total 50 minutes late leaving. Breakfast a simple brioche with nothing to add to it."
Pros: "Nice staff, very professional and helpful."
Pros: "nice drink selection on board flights"
Cons: "My pregnant wife was downgraded from business to economy 20 minutes before departure because the airline made a mistake with the reservation for our puppy traveling in the cabin with us. If this were not enough, the airline also lost one of our bags so this week we have to file for compensation for both begin downgraded and for the contents of our 30 kilo bag which never made it to Ho Chi Minh. Air France was a complete and total disaster and I would strongly recommend all friends and colleagues to find alternative airlines for travel"
Pros: "I liked the food, the crew, the service"
Cons: "The seats we were assigned ( we are two we'll feed person's and the seats are toooo narrow"
Pros: "Boarding was on time"
Cons: "flight was delayed by 20 minutes Boarding got me through Sky priority quickly. Had to then wait in the boarding tunnel as the cabin was not ready. large queue Seats were exactly the same as economy so offered no added benefits apart from the meal on board parked in a distant area of the terminal and had to shuttle bus to 2E which meant a very tight transfer"
Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was horrible and it involved climbing down steep stairs from the air tunnel to the tarmac to board a bus that took us to a far distance where the plane was parked. Had to new walk in the sweltering heat to the plane can climb up steep stairs in the heat! We were now kept in the plane for another hour with no aircondotion. It was boiling hot in there. We had to use the safety manuals to fan ourselves. We eventually left late and got to Lagos one and half hours we were meant to get there. Lastly not all the luggage arrived. Two days into my arrival and I am yet to get all my luggage. It was truly a horrible experience which was echoed by fellow passengers."
Pros: "The stewardesses were extremely kind and helpful to me as I was travelling alone with my toddler. I really appreciated their help and kindness."
Pros: "Sometimes you get surprised, with this specific flight, we had an excellent young and perfect cabin crew. Thanks, Joon!"
Cons: "Plane was canceled at the last minute with a transfer desk literally assaulted by 100s of people. Only 3 persons on the desk. No lane for sky priority. Queued for nearly two hours before some airport employee gave us instructions to travel by train without any other information or tickets etc. Had to buy my ticket. Couldn’t recuperate my suitcase. Had to wait for it the next day for three hours. Up to this hour I don’t know how I am going to be reimbursed (train and plane)."
Pros: "The airplane have great entertainment system. The cabin crew are very nice."
Cons: "It was delayed. I missed my flight. Now I don’t have a bag. I am not sure when I get it back or if I have to go all the way back to the airport"
Pros: "Very poor sound quality on the earphones. Made it very difficult to watch a movie and almost impossible to listen to music."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Very cramped. Poor leg room also with.metal bars under seats that further. Limited foot room. Terrible options in movies."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Very cramped. Poor leg room also with.metal bars under seats that further. Limited foot room. Terrible options in movies. The seats in front of us reclined so far that I couldn’t do anything but stare at the back of the seat anyway."
Pros: "Love the flight attendant, loads of food couldn’t take it anymore. Professionalism at its peak."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Got pillow, blanket, headphone and eye cover"

Pros: "it was cancelled so they got me on the next flight on Turkish"
Pros: "The hostesses were very kind and nice"
Cons: "Air France lost my luggage and they can't find it in the computer system."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with good recline. Food was good, but not excellent."
Cons: "They forgot the snack/breakfast service for the front right section of economy then had to rush it. Overall, the service was good, but some things just seemed off. An attendant call was never answered, etc."
Cons: "Our first leg from Paris was delayed and we missed our flight to Dubrovnik. We then had to hire a car and drive 6 hours to ensure we wouldn't lose a day more of our holiday."
Cons: "Too crowded"
Pros: "Our flight attendant and fnally making it home!"
Cons: "Disorganized uninformed staff. One says I have to have an additional "random" security check after going through the same thing in security. Turns out it wasn't random and I didn't need it. Both times they read my boarding pass wrong thought I was going to Tel Aviv - not random. Airport was hot as hell! Flight kept getting delayed then we had a gate change as well. Finally got on the plane and it took forever to take off so we were basically sitting in a sauna for 30+ minutes."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful Helpful, pleasant, capable"
Cons: "Waiting for late passengers & their luggage"
Pros: "I am a 70 year old woman with reduced mobility. The flight attendants made sure that I was given an aisle seat and they helped me find a seat with two empty ones next to me. The crew could not have been kinder."
Cons: "There is nothing I did not like."
Pros: "Other crew members were very polite to us, in particular a younger tall woman."
Cons: "2 crew members, one named Terri were quite rude and short with us. I even heard her say she was ready to get off the flight. She also asked everyone around me if they liked their flight but did not ask me. She basically threw my coffee condiments at me and dismissed my concerns about the food. I was unsure if the fruit was expired and she quickly dismissed my question without any real explanation."
Pros: "A short flight but attendants served us a snack and water with a smile."
Cons: "No business class"
