Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The food and drinks were sub-par"
Pros: "Sitting in my seat I felt that I had wiggle room for my feet and my arms/elbows. Usually on American flights, I feel like a sardine packed in a can. Even though I was in economy I had plenty of space and was very comfortable during 9 hour flight from BKK to Tokyo."

Pros: "Boarding procedure was the most efficient I have ever seen for a 777. Very quick and efficient, back to front. Great food. Very polite and efficient crew. Plenty of leg room in coach. Comfortable seat configuration, with only three seats in center section. JAL is a great airline!"

Pros: "The crew was excellent, constantly checking in with us to make sure we were okay since we don't eat the airline food."

Cons: "Still paying for wifi in 2016"
Pros: "JAL is the best airline I've ever flown."

Pros: "Absolutely loved the flight. The flight staff was among the best I have flown with. In terms of service I could not have asked for any better. The seats were super comfortable with a great entertainment system/large screen. The layout essentially gave you a nearly private suite. The doos service was impeccable. The lavatories spotless, along with those cool Japanese bidets...first one I've seen on a plane. Overall, I loved the experience."
Cons: "Remarkably the one issue on this wonderful business class seat was a limited area of storage for small items, most significantly a lack of a pocket for a cell phone by the USB port. Also the armrest didn't rise when the seat was in upright mode."
Pros: "Good food and excellent service On time"
Cons: "There are not much choices for movies News uses Japanese only"
Pros: "My seat and my son's seat were booked apart on the both flights. So I requested the representatives at the check in counters at both airports to change our seats so that we could seat next each other. They were willing to help us out and we got the great seats. They had to ask other customers to help this out, too. In the airplanes, the flight attendants were extremely helpful and friendly when we asked them questions and favors, with nice smiles and calm quiet voices. No wonder the atmosphere was very relaxing and quiet during the both flights. The leg room was roomier and the facilities were newer. When I saw three pilots bowed to the customers before getting into the airplane, I felt they were very professional and ready for their jobs."
Cons: "Some food items were too Japanese. Dried Natto snack was especially weird for my son."
Pros: "More leg room in Japan airlines. I decided to use JAL as much as possible. Stewardess are all nice and very attentive."
Cons: "Food is ok, but way so much better compared to the other airlines. The chair is not as comfortable (hard to sit) , but more leg room is a good advantage."

Cons: "I ordered Hindu vegeterian meal while coming to Chicago on phone with Japan Airline I got Asian veg food"

Pros: "Professional and kind service. Leg room. In-service TV/movies. Toothbrushes. Food. Everything was outstanding."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."
Pros: "excellent seat space and excellent in-flight service."
Pros: "This airline is the most professional I have seen so far. They are extremely accommodating, very helpful, and very attentive. I didn't realize how orderly the Japanese culture is. We took off immediately. The ground crew actually waves bye and bows! No one in the sloppy US does that! They were very professional and juse down right respectful. Food and snacks were served often. Even good coffee!"
Pros: "Good food, and entertaimet!"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very accommodating super friendly."
Cons: "The food . I had a stomach ache with one of the salmon(raw) salad. It was horrible!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great and very accommodating. They made the flight comfortable for all passengers. The entertainment was decent, some recent movies. Overall a pleasant experience."
Cons: "There was no choice for vegetarian/vegan meal options on the flight. This was my biggest complaint. Having a meal option is crucial when you are flying for 10+ hours. It is 2016, the vegetarian/vegan community is growing, and it is unfair that there was no choices. Luckily, the snacks were vegan friendly and the kind staff tried to put together a meal of veggies, fruit, and as many rolls as we wanted. If this wouldn't have been the case, the flight could have been a lot worse. Consider giving the meal preference choice to people. Not everyone eats meat, and many have an allergy/intolerance to dairy."
Pros: "Attentive staff, decent food, good choice of entertainment."
Pros: "Crew and service was excellent"
Cons: "Seats are not 189 full flat"
Pros: "Everything was so good. flight attendants were great. plane wasn't full so there were empty seats. plane was super clean and nice. can't recommend them enough."

Cons: "I was in economy so of course there was not too much space for me, but I was OK. The other passengers were all very polite and understanding. The entertainment was so-so: not much selection of movies offered."
Pros: "no -all that was amazing was the complete idiocy of ana"
Cons: "virtually everything was a unacceptable starting with the gate staff ..."
Pros: "The seat is very comfotable. But on the fright from Japan to Bangkok very upset me and my husband. We sat seperated, but on the plane we saw 2 seats available, I asked woman crew that can we move to that seats. She went to talk with the guy who sat on the aisle seat. I heard he said he reserved"
Cons: "The seat beside him for his friend. And the crew said to me she so sorry I couldn't move to sit with my husband. But later no body beside him and he lay down 3 seats all the way. And the crew do nothing for us. We very dissapointed."
Pros: "The flight attendents were very attentive. I started to havecan upset stomach on decent and the attendent checked in on me to see if I needed any help, she got me a botte of water and checked in on me again once we had fully landed. I really appreciated the concern and care they showed."

Pros: "Cabin crews are efficient and very polite. Film selection is fine."
Cons: "Food is boring. I always find myself hungry after flight, as I couldn't find much to eat so left a lot. Maybe I should bring my own food from next time..."
Pros: "Staff are very attentive and helpful; the entertainment system is top class"
Cons: "On boarding, the markers for "business" and "diamond" class are only distinguished by a (low) signpost at the head of the queue. If you're further back or not so tall s difficult to see which queue is correct... quite a few people (not me fortunately!) got turned away because they don't know ANA's boarding system. Also a problem with boarding at HND where the overhead monitors show BIz but not First/Diamond. As some other reviews pointed out, BBC news just didn't work. CNN worked intermittently."
Pros: "Delightful service, comfortable seats, delicious food... what a treat! It was a pleasure to fly ANA and I look forward to doing so again."

Pros: "crews are nice"
Cons: "food so so, delayed taking off at narita for 30 minutes"
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the staff. The overall service was very nice!!"
Cons: "The seats didn't recline at all. Normally I wouldn't care but it was a 12 1/2 hour trip. There wasn't a lot of good, recent movie releases. On other airlines there was more to choose from that were more recent releases. The food wasn't very good. It had all fish choices or beef tongue. I understand having an Asian meal, but maybe should be a more popular meal with different choices than a more eclectic menu. I noticed even the child's meal was not very kid friendly."
Pros: "Time no delayed, Crew very nice, Nice and clean aircraft."
Cons: "No ice cream serve on board"
Cons: "This was a United Airlines flight. The crew were not very friendly. The seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was the fastest I've ever seen on an international trip. Thank you!! And the flight arrived earlier than anticipated. So travel was great."
Cons: "Tight quarters in the economy class were much less comfortable than the ANA flight to Narita. And why isn't there at least a curtain in front of the restrooms - there's way too little privacy in that regard. One should not be able to see the toilet from 10 rows back whenever the door is opened!"
Pros: "Recently we traveled to Tokyo with ANA airways. As was expected both our flights were perfect . We would like to recognize both crews - NH113 March,4, 2016 and NH114 March,15, 2016. Special thanks deserve the crew of flight NH113 on March,4 did everything above and beyond to make our flight enjoyable. We never had been to Japan before, but already on plane we felt welcome to country of rising sun after receiving "welcome" card from beautiful flight attendants who were working that day. It was touchable moment for me and my husband. The crew of NH113 deserves high recognition for their outstanding job."
Pros: "The crew is so nice............and cute too."
Cons: "The temp inside was about 80 degrees........yet, the Asian people seemed to all be freezing....... I was sweating...........almost no snacks or drinks between meals. The meal choices were all Japanese style food."
Pros: "Staff, organization"
Pros: "Flight took off a little early!!"
Pros: "The choices of Japanese food are delicious and easy to eat on the plane. Staffs are professional and willing to help every time I saw them. Love their smiles."
Pros: "The food was very good. crew were helpful. There was leg rest."
Cons: "I couldn't check in online myself and choose my own seat."
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful, very accommodating. I was in last row but my seat tilted back, which I did not expect so I was happy about that. Had enough legroom too."
Cons: "We had a connection at Narita and faced many long lines. Checking In our baggage took a long time and the process seemed rushed and confusing. Then immigration had long lines and we didn't know if we needed extra paperwork for it so had to stop at the desk and ask. then our gate was the furthest possible so we had to rush to get to it and faced a very long line to board. We just made it in time."
Pros: "This airline has more legroom and the bathroom is roomier compared to others I have flown from the US to Asia. The flight attendants are attentive and polite. My daughter slept through breakfast and the attendant came back to check if she wanted anything to eat."
Cons: "The DVT warning in the in-flight magazine called it "economy class syndrome"."
Cons: "The flight was very small"
Pros: "Crew is fantastic. I have flew many many airlines but have never found crew so friendly and service was impeccable. Planes were relatively new which is usually case for majority of the foreign airlines flying long distance from USA. I had ordered Asian Vegetarian Meal. I'm an Indian American and this meal was much better than Air India provides. Will fly again ANA for sure!"
Pros: "We really enjoyed this airline"
Pros: "I understand why this airline is ranked very high. The food was very good, the seats have more legroom even in coach and the movie selection was good."
Cons: "The plane was about 1/4 full. Not that that's bad I just thought it should be mentioned."
Pros: "Business class is the best"
Pros: "The service is really good. The only downside is that you have to be in Doha. But it’s always nice to leave Doha."
Cons: "The push button entertainment system doesn’t work well. You have to keep pressing buttons to make a movie play. And by pressing buttons, I mean, you have to hit the screen and wake up the person whose head is on the other side of the headrest."
Pros: "To long lay over"
Cons: "Direct flight from South Africa to USA"
Pros: "The service. The friendly crew. The clean airplane and bathrooms, the food and drinks. A1"

Pros: "The Service is always great, entertainment system is great and the food is even good."

Cons: "Boarding was a bit Hectic in Bangkok."
Pros: "Food was great , seats were comfortable and crew was very helpful. Entertainment was more than enough."
Cons: "(1) Was about to miss flight because originally my flight booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but t the time of flight I boarded from a different and new airport in Islamabad which had become operational in Islamabad in the last week of April 2018 . My flight was on 10th May 2018 from Islamabad to Doha to Chicago but neither my online booking site ( Kayak ) not Qatar Airways sent any notification that my Boarding was changed from Banzir International Airport to the newer, bigger airport. Consequently , on the day of flight, I went to check in and board from the Bnazir International Airport but upon reaching the airport I was told that the airport was no more in operation. I was surprised to hear that all flights were to be from the newer airport. By the time I rerouted my taxi to the new airport I was already late for my flight but fortunately the flight from Islamabad to Doha, Qatar was delayed and I made it to the boarding time and flew to Doha , Qatar and then to Chicago."
Cons: "Flight was diverted to Kuwait, due to poor condition for landing in Doha and we loose connection to Bucharest."
Pros: "Everyone at Qatar Airlines is amazing. The service and inflight accommodations are great, and they are always looking for how to make your travel more comfortable. I highly recommend!"
Cons: "It would be nice to have socks to put on for when I want to take my shoes off."
Pros: "The Qatar Airways price."
Cons: "Dirty old plane"
Pros: "I have long stay in the DOha airport, 22 hours, and during this there is no accomodation is provided by Qatar airway"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Economy treated like first class!"
Pros: "The price for the flight was very excellent. The entertainment was very good with the movie selections."
Cons: "In Bangkok, I've already checked in on line and all I have to do was drop off my bag and get a boarding pass. There was one to two person doing the checked in and it took about 40 minutes to get done, unacceptable. The lines for non on line check in went faster then the on-line and they have four times more people that was in the on-line checked in. In flight, the seat felt liked you're sitting on a rock after a couple of hours. I'm an aircraft mechanic who used to be a flyer with 7,000 flying hours."
Pros: "Great personnels!!"
Cons: "Overall nothing but great Service!!"
Pros: "Everything was great!!! Stewardess were very attentive and helpful. Food was good. Enjoyed the movies on plane. The comfort was excellent."
Cons: "Can't think of anything I didn't like but maybe that I wasn't in Business Class. Just joking!!!"
Cons: "The customer service of your company is the worst."
Pros: "The crew was great, trully world class service"
Pros: "- Efficient boarding and check-in - on time arrivals"
Cons: "- Food is not as good as in past years. No variety. - -- Attendants don't come around for second beverage (not talking about water distribution) - Planes are showing wear, USB plugs not working"
Pros: "Always heard middle eastern airlines where greats and Qatar didn't disappoint. The staff was amazing and the seats were comfortable and spacey considering it was economy. If I could do it again I would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "Nothing really. Only thing would be you had to be pretty specific with the staff not be woken up because they ensured you were fed and hidrates (not necessarily a bad thing)"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The flight attendants were pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "After the flight landed we had to present our boarding passes one by one so they could be inspected again and our names were crossedoing off some list. It really slowed down meeting our ride and getting to customs. I think it also contributed o our flight being delayed since the flight before us had to do the same thing as they disembarked. I would be more concerned if my flight had a close connection if this is a standard practice. This was my first flight with Qatar. If the practice is standard I won't keep flying them."
Pros: "I was given great service by a Nadine in Detroit with JetBlue. She was very calm and helpful with me getting a baggage claim."
Cons: "My bag wasn't transferred to the next plane in Boston so I couldn't get my bags when I got off the plane. I wish someone would have told me because j waited in Detroit for about 1 hour for my bags without any mention of bags that didn't transfer."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, i had only 2 hours connection in Chicago for an international flight, they asked passengers to NOT panic and do not ask if they didn't call a passenger name. They will call passengers who would miss thier connection for accommodation otherwise you are safe. Unfortunately I didt ask since they didn't call me, when I reached the gate from Chicago, it was closed."
Pros: "Customer Service was excellent. Very roomie, and comfortable. Plane was also very neat and clean. They also had all of the latest movies and other entertainment. I will for sure fly with them again."
Pros: "I just flew from Bangkok to Miami, with a connection in Doha. The roundtrip ticket was about the weirdest one listed (less than $1000USD). For the price, it was a really good flight. The flight attendants were really nice. The seats were comfortable, food was more than decent, and there was a good entertainment system."
Cons: "Earlier in the year I flew a similar flight for a similar price on Emirates. Emirates I liked more for one reason in particular. Emirates had one attendant whose job was solely to clean the bathroom. I don't know about you, but I love the idea of a constantly cleaned bathroom on such a long flight. Qatar didn't have this."
Pros: "Food options and timing options , Ambience , seats configuration, type of seats, extensive entertainment options"
Cons: "I was wholly satisfied , service was courteous , requests were carried timely and seamlessly ."
Pros: "on time, good planes, no problems, good food and service, bags arrived quickly, what else is there to hope for?"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and we definitely didn't go hungry! Tons of new movie options. My husband and I were definitely able to catch up."
Cons: "We were seated in the back of the airplane, where a lot over people hovered for the washrooms, and boarding off the plane took longer. But, not much that could have been done about that!"
Pros: "Plane is good, seats are comfortable, crew were ok"
Cons: "Food was aweful, you should have like fruiets or somthing for ppl who doesn't like the food, it smelled indian food to me both ways, asked for fruite or snack, they never got back to me after they said we don't have any, but will check, again never came back to me, went after an hr. to the kitchned to find out there was a tray of chips and chocolate, buttom line i was starving both ways from the food, was realy nasty (sorry). If your customers are lots of indians, maybe a reminder for hygiene and picking nose, the man next to me drove me crazy from picking his nose and i told him not to, bath room door they leave it open, limit the indians."
Cons: "In Doha, when changing flights, one must go through security at gate. so any water purchased IN airport was confiscated. not a problem since plenty available on board, but time consuming."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Airport is big and comfortable"
Cons: "1. Even though is a new airport, many times they still bus passengers to the terminal. Even a 777 with 300 persons cannot get a gate. 2. Monitors with flight departures are very hard to read. There are not enough monitors so the flights listing alternate, and you have to wait a long time for your flight to appear. 3. Font size in the monitors is too small. 4. The flight departures in the monitors should be sorted out by destination name and not by time. People always know where they are going but not necessarily the exact departure time. 5. Silent screens displaying news in the waiting areas are useless. They should have the captions on at least."
Pros: "the best airline"
Pros: "crew members."
Cons: "food and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "New York to Chicago was American Airlines"
Pros: "It was an alright flight. The plane was clean."
Cons: "They served the opposite aisle beverages, but neglected to do the same for our entire aisle. So I missed out on a cup of coffee. Not a big deal, but one that you wouldn't expect from an airline that prides itself on being world class. They also shut the entertainment down with about 40 minutes left in the flight."
Cons: "Toilets were not clean."
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work and the seat back would not recline."
Pros: "Entertainment system Food Service Punctuality Space between seats"
Pros: "Polite, responsive employees. Great service."
Cons: "There was wery cold on the plane."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and helpful."
Cons: "Transit process at Istanbul airport was not very smooth. Ground staff could have been more helpful."

Pros: "Customer service on point. Great food, comfortable seats. Availability of 2 check in bags is helpful for those who traveling for a longer time."
Pros: "Awesome cabin crew, amazing food, more leg room than European and American carriers. Amazing price. What else can you ask for in economy?"
Pros: "They are professional all the way. They take great care of their passengers. The food was very good. They made sure we had as a comfortable trip as one can"
Pros: "Entertainment screens good"
Cons: "On the flight from Istanbul to Malaga the entertainment screens were very poor."
Pros: "Organized overall"
Cons: "Cabin way too cold"
Cons: "Delay in boarding by 90 minutes; I think it was a power failure in the boarding gate...computers didn't work. No air conditioning either. Ugh"
Cons: "I missed my flight from ABV to Istanbul. The customer representatives at the airport office couldn’t help me find or place me on another flight. They wanted me to purchase a new ticket and pay full price instead of the difference. The flight ime on my itinerary was 12:15a on Sunday (instead of 00:15) which confused me. My flt coming to ABV, airline left my baggage in turkey too and had no representative at airport to inform us what happened. Seems airline treats flights to Nigeria this way"
Pros: "A Lousy airline. Also for Americans: They don't issue visas to allow the passenger who lost their flight to go to a hotel. They stated that there was a diplomatic problem between Turkey and the US so they don't issues visas anymore to Americans. STAY AWAY FROM TURKISH AIRLINES!"
Pros: "Comfort and service"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Lost baggage. Although promised to be delivered on the next day, it didn't happen. Still waiting for resolution of this issue."
Pros: "Crew accommodated at seat change so I had a space between me and the next passenger and I got a row seat."
Pros: "Food customer service touchcreen tablet in each seat. Tablet has access to free movies, shows"
Cons: "for those flying to Saudi Arabia for pilgrimage or umrah, the crew is not knowledgeable on it."
Cons: "Previous flight cancelled due to weather conditions, and despite calling and having a lot of flexibility with time, we were unable to reschedule without massive charges. Our refund was quite low, and we will rebook on another airline. This, despite being a TK gold card member."
Pros: "Staff serving onboard were very nice and food is ok - selection of movies were good"
Cons: "On two TK flights in a row today the outlets the TK handed out headphones were sub-quality - and I basically had to sit and manually keep them in place during both journeys to be able to hear something. Truly annoying! Also - for some reason service was done by only one person per aisle which meant I had to wait really long time before getting both food and drinks."
Pros: "On board cabin crew service"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding with no preference or acknowledgement of business class or premium level passengers."
Pros: "Food in business class was excellent"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. No preferential early boarding for business class or Star Alliance platinum."
Pros: "Entertainment and boarding was excellent."
Cons: "Flight was.cancelled.because.of snow in.Istanbul. Fine, that happens, but only solution was to park us in a hotel and tell us to wait. I did not see any serious attempt to reroute passengers and l had to buy another ticket in order to be back at work in time."
Cons: "I was supposed to be given two boarding passes through my check-in but I was given only one. This caused a lot of confusion on the Istanbul Airport. The staff there we unbelievably rude. They caused two passengers (on separate occasions) to miss their flight right in front of my eyes due to no apparent reason. They plainly refused to cooperate with passengers."
Pros: "Very good food"
Cons: "Seats are a bit crowded, especially when declined"
Pros: "Nothing, will never use this airline again."
Cons: "Worst customer service. Very uncaring and rude. Worst airline I have seen and I have traveled with many. Had doubts about using Turkish and a little less expensive ticket turned out to be the most expensive in many ways. Went to the gate 17 minutes early and the agents and the plane was there but was refused entry and was lied and told to go to gate 215 and missed the flight even though there were empty seats on the plane. Asked for help at the other gate but was given the run around and ignored by everyone and told to go to gate 214. After I went to gate 214 was told to go to customer service lower level. Turkish airline supervisor Mustafa Bogaz at Istanbul customer service held a grudge because I was upset and yelled at one of the supervisors and he told Mustafa and everyone not to help me and wanted to get back at me and said penalty in front of me to the customer service member I was speaking with. Mustafa lied and would not put me on a connecting flight and said I had to pay penalty and wait 24 hours. Told me to go to customer service outside the airport and would not call them after I told him I was ready to pay for a connecting flight and could not wait 24 hours and needed to go to work. Even though an American citizen was told needed a visa after waiting 1 hour in line and had to pay to exit the airport. The machine didn't work and the credit card was refused. Got stuck at the airport for 24 hours and missed work and a family event. Turkey is a hell hole and nothing works. Will never visit again. Mustafa 6 hours later was still holding a grudge and told another customer service member in Turkish in front of me to lie to me and say there was no emergency aisle seat available for the flight the next day. Got an emergency aisle seat the next morning when Mustafa wasn't there. Everyone in the customer service team including other supervisors took Mustafa's side and would not help me and lied. Everyone had no compassion and held a grudge."
Pros: "very nice and friendly cabin crew that gives a great service. many new movies , music.. etc..very good entertainment! the seats are comfortable. the food was taisty"
Cons: "the bording took too long"
Pros: "Everything, Turkish is great."
Cons: "I didn't received my luggage same day Ithat was not find it and I had to wait 4 days to get it"
Pros: "TV accessories - socks, blanket"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Good old style service"
Cons: "Leg room is very tight"
Pros: "Everything was really great!"
Pros: "The wide range of entertainment on offer, personal USB port,"
Cons: "Touch screen did not work properly although once I figured out how to use alternate controls it was fine, had an aisle seat center and there was no way to really stick my legs out withought them being cramped. Staff seemed hurried and more interested in talking with one another across the row I was in. They were not particularly friendly. My first couple flights with Turkish were much much better"
Cons: "The return flight and it's connection were delayed for over 2 hours because of unspecified reasons. We just sat on the runway with no explanation"
Pros: "Great staff Best airline food"
Cons: "Nothing to not like"
Cons: "The food caused food poisining"
Pros: "It was a good flight, what one would expect from an airline. The crew came by the right amount with drinks, etc."
Cons: "I thought the boarding was a little irritating. They had a random extra security check at the gate, and the process made me laugh a little bit. I didn't see any value that this extra security was adding, and I'm all about extra security... just not this experience. On the other hand, the extra security was also very frustrating to me because my previous Turkish Airline flight had arrived late and boarding had already started before I even got off the first plane. I just wanted to get through the gate and be done considering the big rush the delayed flight caused. Also, part of the last meal served was salmon. There were no alternatives to non-seafood eaters, but they did have enough other food on the plate, which made the situation bearable."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seat room was small for me and hard to get comfortable. More leg room needed. Also Overhead compartments filled too fast and no room for my carry on."
Pros: "There was nothing enjoyable about this flight. I am re-thinking if I ever want to take another Turkish Airlines flight again. I gave them rave reviews on the flight from Chicago to Istanbul, could this possibly be the same airline?"
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic and crowded. They should not be pushing a full plane load (777) through a tiny boarding area. By the time I got on the plane, all the overheads were full or overflowing. People were not being told to put one carry-on under the seat in front of them. The seats were the closest together I have experienced in a long time, probably since I flew Ryan Air. The spacing was totally inadequate for a flight that took 10.5 hours of flight time. We got stuck in a section with young children, and the inattention/poor behavior of the parents was ignored by the flight crew. Honestly, this was the WORST flight I have ever been on in my life and I have flown hundreds of thousands of miles over the past 40 years."
Pros: "great service, on time, good food and entertainment. Long haul flights are never fun but this was comfortable and pleasant"
Pros: "The plane, food and beverage service but especially the service from the flight crew far exceeded any expectations we had. We noticed the crew dealing with several difficult passengers around us and they maintained their calm demeanor and professionalism throughout the flight. I am also in the service industry and know what type of patience this takes. Your flight crew were exemplary through and through, bravo!"
Cons: "Our initial checkin was handled by a trainee in Chicago whom we told specifically that we were going to stay in Istanbul for one night on our way to Barcelona. She assumed that our final destination was Barcelona. But after verifying the tags on our luggage, I immediately told her that no, we were to spend one night in Istanbul as we had a performance (we're both musicians). Needless to say our luggage was not on the belt in Istanbul and after more than one hour we chased it down before it made it on the plane to BCN. Our tuxedos for our performance were in the suitcases and we were late for our performance in Istanbul. I will file a formal complaint with your company and I did save the luggage tags as proof. Unfortunately, this put us in a very stressful position, specifically after we had told your check in agent. The overall service was wonderful, however this check in agent truly needs a little more time and supervision before being allowed to check in passengers independently."
Pros: "I love everything"
Cons: "Same as the above feedback. Why couldn't Turkish notify us when our tickets were cancelled? Why does a persons entire itinerary is cancelled even if there are medical reasons for no show. Horrible experience."
Pros: "Flew from Athens to Chicago with a change of planes in Istanbul. Security was excellent. Flight crew very attentive."
Cons: "Luggage did not make the change of planes. Will receive the luggage in 3 - 4 days."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Again, food and service were good. Entertainment options were sufficient."
Cons: "Once again issue with legroom, however, since this was a long flight, I had to find a row with an empty middle seat to be able to get through this flight."
Cons: "I've managed to book the seats that I really wanted for my parents; however the seats have been reasigned while boarding and they ended up in a row with less leg room."
Pros: "I loved the food and the movies that were available. Especially with such a long flight, it's good to be kept entertained"
Cons: "Space was a little tight, as well as the boarding process was not in order. Everyone was allowed to go in at once regardless of the group or where the seat was and that was a little frustrating."
Pros: "Business class staff is friendly, attentive.. Istanbul business lounge is friendly and spacious. Fares are typically best to mideast."
Cons: "Stair/bus boarding method at IST is slow, kinda painful when folks have big carryons. When you do get a jetway boarding, it's a stuffy post-security scrum. Could have been better organized...or organized at all."
Pros: "There was plenty of space, good entertainment, it boarded fast, took off on time, and had zero issues."
Cons: "Better space. Better service. Terrible directions"
Cons: "Seats are tiny"
Pros: "Short lines"
Cons: "Seating arrangements"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I've got the exit seat: very comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment choice could improve, very few choices."
Pros: "Nothing exceptional stands out"
Cons: "Flight was not on time"
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and communicated well. They also had a friendly attitude."
Cons: "A 1 hour wait for wheelchair assistance in Houston and then a 30 minute delay for wheelchair people to take my mom to baggage claim. Then the wheelchair attendant kept complaining she wouldn't receive a good tip to take us to the Lyft pickup area."
Pros: "The flight was average, but the quality of travel on Delta this year has been the worst I’ve ever seen. It’s average at best and I’m considering going back to American because I have yet to have a true Delta flight consistent with previous years, the whole reason I switched to Delta."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, flight was much more comfortable. Nice selection of drinks."
Cons: "The snack on the flight was brioche with a Cajun spread. The bread was great but the spread was too spicy for my tastes."
Cons: "Comfort plus seats on final leg did not appear to be different than main cabin"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Delta put me on an aisle rather than window I am broad shouldered and got pummeled throughout the flight by passengers and crew passing by Gal next to me fell asleep on my shoulder It was ok. She was attractive. :-)"
Cons: "More comfortable seats!!!"
Pros: "It was a brand new 737-900 with legroom, atmospheric lighting, very quiet engines, and LEGROOM in coach. The flight crew was top-notch as well."
Cons: "Nothing. Delta did very well with this one."
Pros: "I was seated in economy comfort. Compared with Delta's Econoomy Comfort, I felt that the KLM seat had more legroom and greater recline."
Cons: "The dinner was awful. No choice of meal. Everyone got a small plastic contained filled with macaroni in tomator sauce. Nothing else. Incredibly bad. Breakfast was better. Sausage and eggs, melon, yoghurt. But who is in the mood to eat at 2 am?"
Cons: "plane was old, entertainment system wasn't stable and had to reboot several times. no usb outlets to charge. wifi was spotty which is hard to be acceptable when your are paying for it."
Pros: "great crew!"
Cons: "luggage. what a nightmare. I waited 30min for my luggage (after a delayed flight) only to be told by a fellow PASSENGER that some of our luggage was directed to a FRONTIER CAROUSEL. I then had to wait by that carousel till I found it. so much for "bags in 20min guaranteed""
Pros: "Good airframe."
Cons: "3+ hours delayed; didn't arrive until 3AM."
Pros: "Very professional crew and in a good mood."
Cons: "The boardimg in Mexico City is always so messy. I think airlines should send back passengers that pretend it is their boarding time when it is not. So many people end up boarding before they should making a mess at the boardimg gate."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Entertainment selection is impressive (though I didn't use it). Drinks and snacks are provided."
Cons: "Boarding process was time consuming due to poor organization from Delta. Unloading process takes forever for the same reason. Despite booking at the same time my fiancee and I didn't get seated next to one another."
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "see above"
Pros: "The pilot, Mr. Howes, I believe, came out and personally thanked everyone for flying Delta. It was a nice touch to see the actual pilot that was flying and me home and that he shared his gratitude. Go DELTA!!"
Pros: "Military boarded first"
Cons: "Disabled US Veterans should be allowed to board with active and retired military"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and prices were fair"
Cons: "I sat next to a creepy intoxicated man during my flight and I was not helped out. When I first sat down he was speaking to me and trying to hit on me but I showed that I wasn’t interested. I didn’t even have to sit down to smell the alcohol on him. During the flight he tried to place his head on my shoulder and tried to get close to me. I was too worried to call for an attendant because he was intoxicated but when the attendants would come and offer us food I tried to make it clearly visible that I was anxious and uncomfortable and NOTHING. To make it worse they continued to serve him alcohol!!"
Pros: "Very orderly."
Cons: "Multilpe delays"
Cons: "delayed flight"
Pros: "Crew and boarding were great, which I expect from a premium carrier like delta."
Cons: "Perfect day outside, not a busy day or time to fly. The email forbhe plane being late was was too last minute. A heads up sooner would have been nice. That way we’re not waiting at the airport."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. They were attentive and very professional"
Cons: "I upgraded my seat and paid extra for one with more room. And I wasn’t impressed with my upgrade, doesn’t feel like more leg than regular seats. Comfort was below average. The crew"
Pros: "After almost every airline cancelled. Delta still took me to where I needed to go with not one single problem. That pilot was amazing. I forget his name. But the plane didn't slide or anything during take off. Amazing."
Cons: "What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me."
Cons: "Delayed so I was not home until middle of the night."
Pros: "Seating and boarding were fine. That process was relatively quick/straightforward"
Cons: "I have never had an on time Delta flight, and hopefully, it will happen one day"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "On two of the legs of the trip they notice I was a tall person with long legs and upgraded me to seats with more leg room!! I didn't even ask. Thank you."
Cons: "On the way back there were open seats with extra leg room and I asked the gate attendant if it was possible to switch my seat to one with more room and they said they only could if I paid extra."
Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "The layover in Mexico City was a bit long and the airport was not so great"
Pros: "Yet one more trip that reminds me why I refuse to fly any other airline than Delta. (I fly every week for work.) Top-rate LA crew, flights always departs on time, early to destination more than half the time. Comfortable seats, upgraded to Delta Comfort today. Gate agent was friendly, helpful and joking with passengers. Made it seem like we were all going on an adventure. Kudos to Delta all around!!"
Pros: "Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular."
Cons: "Seats are getting too crowded!"
Cons: "Planned my trip for my birthday/10 year anniversary. The first leg of the trip, flying from ft Lauderdale to atlanta was ok except for the pilot having to circle around bc he was too close to the airplane in front to land. This made us supposedly late to our connecting flight which by the way was not supposed to leave before 8:10. My husband and I arrived at the gate about 10 minutes before only to be told that the door was locked. Needless to say, we weren't the only ones. When we got up to the desk, the attendant was extremely rude. I was having a conversation with my husband about a dog that had just passed us . She immediately made her way into the conversation asking me what i was saying. I told her I was talking to my husband about the dog and under her breath said : " I'm sure you were." I then told her that i was more than sure about what I was talking about. We get booked on another flight and my seat was the only one without a working monitor. We asked the suitardess to see o If there was anything that could be done They tried to reset it to no avail. Since we didn't say anything else, it was forgotten about. My husband shared his screen with me so that I wasn't totally bored on the flight. Not the way I wanted to start off my birthday but I'm glad that nightmare is over Delta really needs to retrain their employees on customer service bc it leaves a lot to be desired!"
Pros: "On Tim and friendly"
Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."
Cons: "I was an older plane, it was louder than our flight down to Atlanta. Nothing they could do about it, but a slight annoyance."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival, clean plane. Enough space for your carry on."
Cons: "Despite having 15 open seats on the earlier flight, I needed to pay $75/person to take the earlier flight. I chose not to do this. Would I have loved to get home 2 hours earlier."
Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."
Pros: "Staff were great.. landed smoothly"
Cons: "I'm tired of Delta making it IMPOSSIBLE to experience benefits of my loyalty. I flew literally AROUND the world in the past 6 months and it STILL doesn't qualify me for anything more than Silver elite? Seriously? When you use a voucher because of their error to lower your ticket price, but still pay cash for it, why does that then automatically exclude you from upgrades? Poor customer loyalty, in fact, non-existent these days."
Pros: "Great crew presentation of safety and other announcements, friendly anf courteous, except..."
Cons: "crew seemed to arbitrarily decide not to serve anything on the flight. Announced the flight was too short to serve anything, so they didn't even try. I've flown this hop many times and have never heard this excuse."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Cons: "My luggage is lost. I picked it up in LAX and reboarded. It never arrived to MSP. My wife's luggage was also lost but they found it on another flight. They have no clue where mine is."
