Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."

No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."

Cons: "Cancelled our flight and cost us a lot of money. Then Rebooked us through another carrier and we waited and they wouldn’t take us, said there was only two seats left and we would have to wait until the next evening for another carrier. Wow just terrible service. We drove five hours for this. I’m afraid British Airways is too big of a company and doesn’t really care!"

Pros: "Easy to make the connection flight, very informative ."
Pros: "generally clean, good crew"
Cons: "The crew were clearly not happy to be here New Year’s morning. They didn’t do the proper number of services, then left many of us with our food trays while they all went to take a lengthy break together. Passengers were using the flight attendants call button, and they were ignored."
Cons: "was about last being served the meal and the crew member asked for the tray before i was finished. apparently my glasses were on the tray and were thrown away. the entertainment package was good as well as the comfort of the seat even if they allowed very little room between seats. was particularly annoyed that i was guided to go through security again after landing from munich."

Pros: "Leg room, food and entertainment"

Pros: "Crew were great."
Pros: "The journey Bengaluru to London Heathrow was very comfortable with sufficient leg room. However the journey London Heathrow to San Diego was not comfortable. This is because the seats are so designed that the Seat mounts come in the way of stretching your legs. It is improperly designed which can be checked out with any expert in ergonomics."
Pros: "Nice plane, very smooth flight, good landing."
Cons: "Small screen on movies, couldn't find charger station for my iPhone."
Cons: "I loved everything except the in flight entertainment which was very limited and boring. Please upgrade it to the high standard and good quality of everything else. I spent the whole flight reading!"

Pros: "Some of the cabin crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was in the premium economy section, which was definitely more comfortable than regular steerage but the 777 cabin was old, and the amenities out of date. No plugs for phone or ipad charging; the in flight entertainment system was buggy and the selection was very limited. There was one drink service. Even business class looks worn out and tattered. No wonder the Gulf based airlines are eating their lunch."
Pros: "On time, good entertainment"

Cons: "Seat bottoms were painful. TV screens were super old, but thats a very first world complaint."
Cons: "The plane takeoff time was delayed by almost two hours. When we got to Oakland, waiting for the luggage took an exceptionally long time. Don't understand why we couldn't sit in the waiting room until a "certain time" before getting on the plane, we had to wait outside in a hall with no seats. The room was not being used by anyone else."
Cons: "My flight was booked for April 25 and my paperwork actually showed that. Upon arrival at Gatwick I was told the flight left on April 24 and no other flight till April 27 so I had to go to Heathrow."
