Will never do business with them again."

And problem is still unresolved. So thanks for asked for asking but better to fix the problem!"

Cons: "I am disappointed that Turkish Airlines has not responded to my request for a refund on taxes for this same flight that I did not use on February 19 because I was sick. Dhaka-Istanbul-Tirana-Istanbul-Chicago. They made me pay double what I paid for the entire round trip flight to move this flight 2 days later when I was well enough to fly. I have called and written several times and they have not responded. I have used Turkish Airlines for years and this is very disappointing, I am entitled to the airport taxes that I paid and did not use."

Pros: "not much"
Cons: "hostesses not so courteous"
Pros: "Food served two times and amazing guys helped us during flight. They're very respectful not like united airlines beat the guy."
Cons: "It is just crazy the extra cost that a person needs to pay for each extra Kg he/she needs to have onboard along with their "free baggage." I had to pay 23 extra US Dollars for every Kg, summing up to $160 for 7 Kgs!! Those additional belongings were crucial and important to carry, it very well understood that a certain capacity is only allowed onboard, yet being considerate and understanding in terms of customers' needs and priorities is as equally critical and important. I think the way the airline approaches the "Extra Weight" issue needs to be revisited, keeping in mind both sides' interests and concerns."
Pros: "Very good legroom"
Pros: "I like everything the staff, the food, the plane was very clean and the entertainment was very nice with lot of options."

Pros: "Everything, fast boarding, good experience overall, turkish airline provides good services for very affordable price, i am pleased"

Cons: "Every thing"
Cons: "Seats felt like Adirondack chairs..hard and no lower back support."
Pros: "Best part was how Lufthansa took care of travellers whose connection time was short. They had ground crew waiting and who escorted us through customs, and then drove us to the gate. This is how passengers should be treated. ~ Excellent movie selection ~ Great flight attendants"
Pros: "The staff is good"
Cons: "The service for a wheelchair is extremely bad"
Cons: "Waited in Luftansa line 9.5 hours to rebook flight after Munich airport shut down for 7 hours. Lufthansa totally unprepared for this situation. Understaffed and unhelpful with directions.

Pros: "The trip from frankfurt to boston was amazin"

Pros: "Their service is excellent on board ."
Pros: "I was able to squeeze back into Comfort Economy and make my destination, after a messed up miles upgrade - have to be grateful for the small things, right?"
Cons: "I was actually upgraded to Business Class through a LH miles award, however, that upgrade was not honored, despite the fact that I had a confirmation email from them. I had to first get to Frankfurt to even negotiate this problem. At the departure point, LH was unable to furnish me a boarding pass to my NY flight. After racing though the huge airport at max speed to make this connection, I was treated rudely at the gate in Frankfurt by LH short tempered ground staff, to the point of even being accused of being the source of the problem and being late for boarding (when I was only accorded an hour connection through this booking, and raised this concern with LH prior). Lastly, the ground crew took away my connecting flight boarding pass and nearly forgot to give me back my luggage tag. The flight crew was Ok, but just did a bare minimum to keep up with the packed and overbooked flight. To top of the joy, I got food poisoning after landing in NYC - not all food they serve was in sealed containers, and it must have been enough to cause a day of misery that followed my arrival - I can assure you that the late time and taxing and docking delays in NYC took away any opportunity to have a normal dinner, and LH food was all I had all day... Not the usual LH experience, but I may give them a break for the next few trips."
Cons: "My bag is missing am so worry about that To IAD LH 0418/25 VIA FRA LH 0693/25 VIA 0220 216418 LH 216418"
Pros: "Upgrade to Economy Plus. Very comfortable seats, I am a fan! Excellent Indian veg food."

Cons: "Lufthansa sharing code with United wasn't pleasant at all."
Pros: "Even I fly Lufthansa all the time with miles and more it makes you IT'S LIKE TOILET PAPER...VERY DISAPPOINTED...."
Pros: "Good quality: crew, equipment, customer service"
Cons: "Frankfurt airport: Had to walk for an hour to get from gate to gate. I was getting off an international flight and onto another international flight. International gates are usually closer than that. On the flight: 1. The armrests pull up, which is great if you're traveling with family or a significant other. But, in my case, it was an overweight and obese lady, who didn't fit in her seat and just slipped into half of mine. I was stuck with half a seat with her arm bumping mine for a 12-hour flight. I landed with a bruised arm. It was a round trip flight. When I had submitted a complaint, Lufthansa refunded me a 100$, which is nice of them, but I think they should have upgraded me for my return flight instead to make up for the first flight being uncomfortable. 2. I paid for the internet service and was charged double for it. Again, had to submit a complaint and was refunded the money. Check-in: The online system wouldn't allow me to check in online because my passport wasn't biometric."

Pros: "Every things"
Pros: "Everybody in bilbao was very helpful as I had a problem with the boarding pass that they solved, very thank full for the service"
Pros: "The cabin crew were well trained, hospitable and efficient. The young lady assigned to our section of the aircraft worked endlessly to address the needs of passengers, and remained extremely pleasant and often humorous, throughout the passage."
Cons: "The boarding process unnecessarily was long and hot. We stood in the jet ramp line for nearly 15 minutes before entering the aircraft. There was no ventilation and the air was tepid. The seats were smaller in Economy Class than on competitor carriers. The lavs were unattended to during the 7 hour flight and, consequently, were filthy during the last hour or two. The food was mediocre, at best, but at least the cocktails were not an upcharge. Enough alcohol can make just about any food palatable."
Cons: "Not enough space. Seats are way to small. No tv's on plane"
Pros: "excellent meals, good service, excellent entertainment"
Pros: "I was comfortable, not affraid."
Cons: "No leg room for a long 4 hour flight!"

Cons: "EXCELENT SERVICE BOTH ; COUNTER & IN AIR:: GREAT FOOD ; LOVED THIS AIRLINE"
Cons: "I had no idea that the flight you booked me on require extra 40 euro fees for check-in luggage. To add insult to injury, the Aegean flight required check-in at a Lufthansa counter which would not accept payment for the luggage fee. I had to wait in a long line of 30+ passengers at the Aegean counter"
Cons: "The food maybe"
Pros: "Ground crew and cabin crew were very helpful and efficient"
Cons: "The staff at the airport did not know how to validate my travel documents which were emergency documents issued as the originals were stolen in Greece. Apparently a common issue according to the police so I would think the airline would have standard procedures in place for these circumstance."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat and to close to seat in front. Could barely put tray table down!"
Pros: "Was on time and staff is always great"
Pros: "The food was great and the flight attendants were very nice!"
Pros: "I purchased the go lite fare because I wanted to reserve the exit row and this was the least expensive option. Good food and nice crew"

Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours"
Pros: "Free food! Very nice flight attendants"

Cons: "I checked a small bag and it was 60 Euro. Too expensive!"
Cons: "I wish the announcements made in English were easier to understand"
Pros: "The assistance from om HE check inn clerk."
Cons: "The confusion of where to drop your bags- whether we had to pay extra and where to pay it!"
Cons: "When I bought the ticket I made sure there was one piece of luggage allowed. When I checked in they said there is no baggage allowance and had to pay usd 69. I feel I have been duped. I should get a refund."
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the staff friendly and did realize we would be served a full meal for a two hour flight from Athens to London; unexpected and appreciated."
Cons: "We didn’t board the plane at the times listed, it was running behind."
Cons: "Plane got stuck on the runway for 45 minutes citing some air congestion reason over Cyprus!!!! we where in Lebanon. Comfort is low for the prices you pay"
Pros: "The crew, the food"
Cons: "Our first flight out of Mykonos was delayed by a little so we had to run to our connection in Athens and my bag didn’t make it onto the plane. So now I’m in London, missing a dinner because I don’t have dress acceptable clothes, can’t go out and buy any because it’s too late on a Sunday. I am also going to miss my plans which were the only reason we came to London. as I do not have acceptable clothing to go out in tonight. So it was a waste of paying the flight to London, and our Airbnb in London."
Cons: "space when seating"
Pros: "The staff especially the cabin crew were very professional and Courteous. The food was fantastic and served well."
Cons: "Being called to wait to board in a Que when we did not need to like Ryan Air"
Pros: "Good service! On time!"
Cons: "not nearly enough room, despite having bought extra legroom seats. Crowded.."
Cons: "At Beirut airport the manager gave permission to a passenger at check in to bypass all the passengers waiting in line just because he was with someone!!! When I stepped out, and asked him can you do this. Very rudely he said, that this passenger is business class. I didn't believe him, so I asked the second manager if this is correct. He didn't do anything about it. When on the plane, the passenger, was sitting behind me in economy class. Shitty service."
Cons: "The website only mentions about having to pay for extra luggage and they made me pay 55 dollars at the airport for a 20 kg suitcase. This is dishonest and unacceptable."
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: "They locked the bathrooms whenever the staff were passing around drinks, food, or collecting garbage. They claimed it was due to "safety" but every staff was easily walking around passing around drinks. There was no turbulence. Even when multiple people tried to get up to go to the restroom, they sent them away. Finally, when they unlocked the bathrooms after a good 30 mins, there were HUGE lines. They did this multiple times. It doesn't make sense to lock the bathrooms that long. People need to use the restroom and then they create larger lines which is more dangerous because even more people are standing up at the same time. Doesn't make sense. Will probably not use this airline again if this occurs again."
Pros: "Accurate times"
Cons: "Night travelling"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No tv"
Pros: "Thanks for everything"
Cons: "Thanks for everything"
Pros: "Once we landed in Athens, knowing that our next flight would be taking off in 5 minutes, we thought ther was no way that we'd make it. Instead, they had someone waiting for us when we got off of the flight and someone to run all 11 of us through the airport to the plane. Aegean held the flight because they knew 11 people from the Santorini flight were coming."
Cons: "Once on the plane, we ended up sitting there for another 30 minutes, even though it was already 20 minutes late waiting for us. When I asked the stewardess whether that meant that our bags were going to make the flight she said she'd have to check. She never came back. I then asked a second girl and she said that she'd have to check and she never came back. I finally asked again before landing and she supposedly went and asked someone and came back and said yes they made it. Got to baggage claim - no bags. We had another flight to catch back to the states, so we didn't have time to figure out the situation. We spent the next three days frantically calling Aegean, to no avail. Their customer service either wouldn't answer or would tell us to call London Heathrow lost and found, who wouldn't answer. Eventually, Delta found our bags and had to work with Lufthansa and their own boots on the ground at LHR to find the bags and get them back to us."
Cons: "Its the worst airline"
Pros: "Boarding was expedited using two entries."
Cons: "We were delayed an hour."
Pros: "Aegean delivered excellent service during my flight to Amsterdam from Athens! They actually served a complimentary meal and wine during my 3.5 hour flight. The flight attendants were so nice."
Cons: "I loved the service during the flight and I can't wait to fly Aegean again!"
Pros: "Onboard food is always excellent. Great legroom (row 5 on a321) from Athens to London (LHR). Seats are comfortable enough and servers are always pleasant."
Pros: "Getting food provided. After almost missing the flight it was a real bonus to find this is the only flight in years that I've taken which provided a meal. In the old days I might have complained about the quality of airline food. Now I'm just very grateful to get it! - and the quality was not bed either!!"
Cons: "No entertainment on a 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Fast, clean, gracious."
Pros: "the service food and punctuality"
Pros: "Before the first fly we request to be on the front and we ger the last row!!! The plan was so small that i cant get inside and i'm 1.90 m so i need to put my legs out and all the time the girls staff kick my legs and wake me up Before i get inside the plan they took my trol (small sutcate) becuse "it's to much big" (this is the regular size!!!! and when i told the girls they told me that we dont dissc lus about it!!!! Al the flight their wasnt ballans and it was terrible i felt so bad and when all the people get a paper to feel and i was sleep so no one told me that i need to do this Terrible flight of my life!!!!"
Pros: "the food"
Pros: "Friendly staff, movies on the plane"
Cons: "The checkin area at the airport is poorly staffed and disorganized which resulted in a feeling of crowded confusion and stress. A greeter for agean airlines directly at the entrance would significantly improve this, as would more check in kiosks (two and only one worked) and a more linear system (you have to go backward to check your bag before going forward)."
Cons: "I was not able to use this reservation and when I contacted Aegean, they would not refund any portion of the ticket nor give me credit. Therefore, I cannot recommend the airline nor will I ever fly them."
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: "Very friendly. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "Very quick ...very nice the airport needs better signage ..not under your control I know but would help"
Cons: "The staff at the counter snd in the booth were great"
Pros: "There was a little more room than I am used to in coach and that made for a more enjoyable flight. The staff was attentive and nice and English skills were good enough so that I did not feel that there were any misunderstandings. I would fly them again and cost was a plus"
Cons: "I was charged $90 for something which I was unaware of. I assume it was baggage but they did not tell me when I checked in. I only found out once I was home and reviewing my credit card statement. At the time of check in I was surprised they did not charge for bags but I was not going say anything at the time."
Pros: "The food was good and the flight was relatively empty which made the service even better. Very nice flight!"
Cons: "It was have been nice if a movie was being shown. The flight was long enough"
Pros: "Not alot. The crew were very professional and nice to the eye"
Cons: "No information on delay. Boardind process: id and boarding card were checked on entry to the gate area. Then once again before the actusl boarding: doing the ssame job twice and creating a further delay."
Pros: "Nice food"
Pros: "Confort and kindness"
Cons: "It was too cold"
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Pros: "Everything works and quick to get to destination."
Pros: "KLM STAFF WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL"
Cons: "SOME CREW MEMBERS WERE ABIT RUDE. THEY NEED TO WORK ON THEIR ATTITUDE"
Cons: "The plane is so old..,"
Pros: "The aircraft"
Cons: "No overbooking next time!"
Cons: "The flight was a bit delayed, but the airline handled it incredibly well. I was put up in a great hotel with good free food and caught another flight the next morning."
Pros: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"
Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Moved me up front in the plane so I could make my connection."
Cons: "Not having to walk outside in Edinbur4gh to board the flight."
Pros: "Just the cabin crew being nice"
Cons: "Punctuality KLM is always late"
Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."
Cons: "Long haul flight made pleasant by KLM"
Cons: "Turn the lights on early making it hard to sleep"
Pros: "Economy comfort was very nice, food decent, plenty of toilets to avoid overcrowding, and good entertainment selection."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. I travel KLM often and always enjoy the flights."
Cons: "There were several flight delays and gates were changes a few times."
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Pros: "Very personable staff. Food acceptable for airline fare. Ticket price was outstanding."
Cons: "Paid for extra legroom, but very narrow seats not comfortable. Very difficult to sleep. Old plane--could not hear movies and unclear screen. Music sounded OK and choice was good."
Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."
Pros: "Comfortable and well laid out seat area"
Cons: "Food was a little substandard for business class"
Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "It would be helpful for short people to be able to adjust the head rest lower on the seat. More recent released movies would be helpful. More leg room. Not charging more money to choose seats."
Pros: "Easy to board and easy flight."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "I paid a top price for my ticket and expect the advertised amenities to work. Upgrade or replacement for entertainment system."
Cons: "The movie selection did not seem extremely varied."
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Cons: "... ear plugs, masks, good food or even picking seats? I remember when it was all complementary and standard on overnight flights. Oh, and the vegetarian breakfast was unfortunately poor as well. I know you can do better, because you used to."
Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Cons: "No charging ports for electronic devices."
Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Crowded seating, wake-up for breakfast service two hours before arrival"
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
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: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"
Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"
Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."
Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"
Pros: "Quick (relatively) flight."
Cons: "Skinniest seat ever. Couldn't even lean back. I now have hunchback."
Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
Pros: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"
Cons: "I missed my flight because of MU"
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!"
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: "Flight was overbooked. After paying 1.7k, they put me to another flight which took me 7 hours more to arrive SFO."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived ahead of time. Baggage arrived very promptly. Seats comfortable."
Cons: "Very limited movie choices on inflight entertainment. Seatbelt short, unable to keep secured except sitting straight in seat. No food which is now typical most domestic flights 4 hours or less."
