Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The new aircraft is well put together and comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarking delays on both sides."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and service was very professional."
Cons: "Lower prices!"
Cons: "Turkish airlines broke my luggage. Made inquiry online, have not hurt from them."
Cons: "The airline lost my luggage. I have to wait two days for it's return."
Pros: "Friendly crew, boarding on time, leaving and arriving on time, well maintained planes, clean."
Cons: "Seats on this flight were even smaller than the previous. It almost feels that these seats were designed for little kids."
Cons: "While seated in the plane we saw our second suit case. We called the stewerd and advised him of our observation and he promised to check with his supervisors; he came back and confirmed that all is under control. Arrived Bordeaux and the luggage didn’t. It took two days to get the suitcase and it took hours of follow up and the airport agent kept giving false excuses. At the end we drove to the airport and picked it up ourselves. Of course at the airport we listened to more trash."
Pros: "I enjoyed the food the most. The flight was short and easy."
Pros: "Nothing. How can anyone overbook a flight and want the passengers to pay the price. Food is horrible. Will never book with this airline again"
Cons: "Everything. Customer service is horrible"
Pros: "Excellent all around"
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating, oldish plane, depressing colour combinations in the plane. Plane lavatory was dirty"
Pros: "The seats are not as luxurious as the international. They do not recline that much and are not pods. No surprise as that is similar to the US. But it was only a 3 hour flight so was fine. Food was same as first trip, solid.. Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5 hours. They did not communicate at all the reason. Takeoff was supposed to be 8.30pm, didn’t take off until 11pm. Sat on the tarmac for over an hour and the crew or pilot did not say a word. The beverage service again was lacking compared to other international business class flights I’ve taken."
Pros: "I am a disabled passenger. Turkish look after me well."
Cons: "No complaints. Good service"
Pros: "Ataturk airport, meals"
Cons: "Turkish airlines staff are rude"
Cons: "Cabin crew in business class were not especially friendly and was really lazy during the welcome drink service. They did not even ask each passenger and greeted them to see if they want anything. Instead, they just held the tray of welcome drink and walked around the cabin once, then poured all the unconsumed welcome drinks into the bathroom. Service after take off was abysmal as well. No smile, no addressing passenger by name, all the service was done in a rush and a totally weird manner. The food is not very much to my liking since it heavily consisted of cheese, and there is literally no choice for you to get away with that. Having a traditional Turkish menu is great at one hand, but in this case it was a huge no-no."
Pros: "Good food and service"
Pros: "Great crew! So efficient and friendly. I understand why it is, but security was over the top. Cabin was a big cramped. Super food offerings!"
Pros: "In-flight service (food and entertainment) and crew are excellent."
Cons: "I think boarding process in Houston was a hectic and slightly disorganized."
Cons: "Great experience"
Pros: "Food is excellent."
Pros: "I am a business woman and my time is very valuable. I was supposed to fly on May 18,2017 with Turkish Airlines and my flight was rescheduled for May 19 without prior notice,call or a text message.I was driving to Miami on the 18 th just to find out my dilghtbwas cancelled.No one have me an option or asked me to reschedule.I had to fly on the 18 May and I picked this day for a reason.No one from Turkish airlines was present at the airport on the 18 May."
Cons: "after plane landed, we stayed one (1) hour on the run way till the plane could find a gate to pull into. After as 14 hour flights, this was the icing on the cake!!!"
Pros: "The staff are all very professional and nice."
Pros: "The Welcome from the crew member and Istanbul airport"
Cons: "Food, Drinks and the service from Crew."
Pros: "The seats had a decent amount of leg room."
Cons: "Stuck in Istanbul airport for three days because of snow. The way the airline handled it was APPALLING. Second night stood in line for a hotel for over four hours only to find out at 3am that there weren't any more. And none of that captures the insanity of being sent to a transfer desk with no way out except buying a Turkish visa and going through immigration. Inexcusable. I have traveled to over 40 countries in the past 30+ years and this was beyond the pale, absolutely a nightmare, and almost all of it (excepting the actual snow delay) in the airline's control. NEVER FLY THIS AIRLINE THROUGH ISTANBUL."
Pros: "After checking in in Manila, they told us there is no more seats for us and we're not able to board the plane that we booked few months in advance! Wtf! We had to board next plane the next day, 24hours latet! One day of our vacation lost. Going back was no better since the plane from Manila had slight delay and we missed our connecting flight to Ljubljana for just few minutes. Disappointment again! We got home 15 hours later than we should have. Don't think we will fly with Turkish airlines ever again.After checking in in Manila, they told us there is no more seats for us and we're not able to board the plane that we booked few months in advance!

Pros: "I am a frequent Turkish Airways travel and have always enjoyed my experiences with Turkish Airways."
Cons: "My seat was not functioning so I was not able to recline to more comfortably sleep during the flight. The flight was an overnight flight from NYC-JFK to Istanbul, i.e. so a VERY long flight! A flight attendent was not able to get the seat to recline either and said she'd come back to help with another seat or some other solution, but never returned. This made the flight less comfortable and a bit disappointing as my typically experience with Turkish Airways is excellent!!"
Pros: "Best airlines"
Pros: "Food was good , crew was nice, entertainment was good"
Cons: "They lost my bag, no apology until I had to write a complaint, no reimbursement of anykind for bag arriving 3 days latter, and I can go on...."
Pros: "The fact it took me where I wanted to go"
Cons: "Food sucked barely ateable, entertainemnt was such an old school. There were hardly any new movies plus they had one two international movies n the rest was from 90s."
Pros: "Everything, fast boarding, good experience overall, turkish airline provides good services for very affordable price, i am pleased"
Cons: "Airport is huge, the walk to gate 701 was long, i thought i would never get there...i think they should arrange some kind of transportation to gates like 701"
Cons: "Had to cancel due tp safety situation in Turkey (bombings, Dept of State warning). I had flight insurance but Kayak did not refund a dime."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, quick boarding and deplaning"
Cons: "No in seat entertainment, bad food"
Pros: "that its only 1 hour 45 min."
Cons: "tired cabin crew. terrible wet sndwich. very disssapointing specially when they knew it's a night flight that most of the people coming from connections of 10 hours!! Seats need improvement. terrible entertainment which made the people and specially the kids more boring.. and.. we had a delay of almost 1 hour!!"
Pros: "Wonderful experience"
Pros: "Good food on board, TV is in every seat and USB plug to charge."
Cons: "Crew is okay. Does not really pay attention by the end of the flight. flight from Miami to Istanbul is very long - 11+ hours"
Pros: "TONS of legroom, fantastic service, young and friendly crew, great food, overall very comfortable."
Pros: "Low prices & generally good service and entertainment"
Cons: "This airline used to be excellent. Now, the prices have been going up and the standards down. Service not as good, food not as tasty, plentiful and varied, crew not as warm and attentive. Instabul airport was the usual chaos, which does not add to the experience for transfers. Also: boarding started late and of course was not done and time and since we lost our slot we were further delayed taking off. That made the transfer time even less and the situation more stressful."
Pros: "Boarding was fine in Istanbul. Go to toilet before going through security check in the gate."
Cons: "Poor crew service--amazingly slow (my general THY service experience has been great, but in this leg crew did not respond to calls for almost 20-30 minutes). After meals, most people took their own empty trays to return them behind (because the crew had not picked up after 30+ minutes). The meals arrived cold as well. My entertainment set froze after 4 hours in a 13 hours trip, and was not attended to after repeated calls. One conscientious Turkish stewardess was very helpful in the 9th hour (literally), even if the entertainment did not come back on. To top these, I was sandwiched between a teenager on front and teenagers on right, who were loud and generally weird (obviously not the airlines fault). So, it ended up being a mediocre experience overall."
Pros: "Crew friendly attitude, seats, comfort, food and entertainment choice were top class."
Cons: "Gate changed 2 times, many had to run long distance between gates, take-off was 40min late. loud and useless (no english) flight announcements would wake me up each time"
Pros: "Flight took off on time"
Cons: "Pilot announces that we will land 15 minutes early and to buckle and prepare to land in about 20 minutes. 40 minutes later, we were still on air, no explanation given!"
Pros: "It's the first time we use Turkish Airline and ,the ride was pleasant and comfortable, crew is friendly , meal was tasty ..."
Pros: "sevice, personnel"
Pros: "the boarding was fine, we were on time and the staff was pleasant."
Cons: "the food was ok, they played one movie for everyone to watch and our screen was not the best, small seats with no leg room, filthy greasy window i had to clean to look out of."
Pros: "Contrary to many mainstream airlines which try to cut costs everwhere to the detriment of economy class passengers, Turkish airlines provides excellent service in economy, and I could get a super cheap fare for my whole family."
Pros: "Very efficient crew but not very nice."
Cons: "The tv screen was on all night, they could've made it darker and quieter for a night flight"
Pros: "So far this is the only company that offers fruit meals and that was really nice surprise."
Cons: "On my flight from New York they didn't have my special meal request, but on my way back I learned that I just had to remind the crew before they served the food. I called them in advance and pre-order meal but in addition to that you have to make sure they know where you're seated because if you don't check in online they don't get that info on time for serving... I wish I knew that before but I do know that now :)"
Pros: "Crew was great, the seats are never comfortable"
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "As always, the seats in basic economy are as small as possible without actually being standing room only. I'm 5'7" and my knees are only about an inch from the seat back in front of me."
Cons: "The inoperative TV screens should be repaired."
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "crj900 from BUF-MSP is a wreck. worn out, uncomfortable seats, cold air coming from floor toes were numb for about 20m after flight. Flight delayed, missed connecting flight, lost comfort+ upgrade I paid for. No excuse for pitch in main cabin on 737-900 ER."
Pros: "Nothing remarkable"
Cons: "Delta was ordinary"
Cons: "They need to make more leg room in ALL planes"
Pros: "The crew and entertainment options are great. Relatively comfortable seats by today's standards."

Cons: "Too cold"
Cons: "Working USB ports. On time departure."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "The flight is operated by Air France and I would have preferred Delta. It was extremely cramped but the food was excellent and it was on time"
Pros: "On time arrival is always appreciated."
Cons: "Overhead compartment jammed with someone else's carry on. We paid for "comfort seating" and I frankly didn't see any difference - if there was more room on those seats, it was small enough I couldn't SEE it."
Pros: "Good access to charging, good food"
Cons: "More space:)"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was excellent"
Pros: "Overall was a good experience"
Cons: "My wife’s seatback entertainment kept glitching...that was frustrating and Seat wasn’t very comfortable"

Cons: "more leg room is needed"
Cons: "Every thing was excellent"
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Pros: "Food was okay. Everything else was great!"
Pros: "wonderfu crew... very helpul`"
Cons: "Did not serve the food we asked Limited choice of movies"
Cons: "The food was just ok."
Pros: "The Delta service desk was great! We wanted to get an earlier flight home and the Delta Rep got us on standby quickly and with a smile."
Cons: "Some chaos getting on the flight. The area they have set up for the different sections to wait before getting called weren't marked very well so everyone was bunched up and confused. Once they started calling the sections it was fine. Not sure why they even had the marked areas."
Pros: "Food and service was amazing."
Cons: "My luggage is lost."
Pros: "My upgrade and breakfast were fabulous!"
Pros: "Staff very courteous and professional"
Pros: "The food and the service"
Pros: "Food and movies were good."
Cons: "Didn't leave on time."
Cons: "Old plane, bad food & old crew"
Pros: "The Delta check-in at RDU was terribly understaffed with only 2 agents handling baggage drop-off for a fully booked Boeing 757. I waited over 1 hour and got to the gate at the last minute. Poorly managed! The flight crew was great though! Very attentive service even in the economy class!"
Cons: "The food could be better."
Pros: "I asked for a change of seat at the gate and was given it. It really made a difference to be at the window."
Cons: "No check in to Minsk from Paris"

Cons: "Make sure the new signs are posted in all airports for boarding. That will help control people at the entrance"
Cons: "Gate agent not friendly"
Pros: "Crew was excellent everything served was of great quality, all the amenities were solid and flight was comfortable and on time."
Cons: "The only complaint was the extreme use of air conditioning that made it a necessity to use many blankets to keep warm from freezing."
Cons: "Like everyone says - could use more leg room. Theres no way to stretch legs which is a problem on ling flights. Why not lift up the seats by a few inches? This would create more leg room underneath without changing the number of seats and doesnt impact the head room much."
Cons: "My wife was told she could not board our flight from Boston to Paris because her passport was expired, even though it was not expired. We were told that in Europe passports cannot expire within 3 months of your departure. However, Delta never let us know about this rule until we literally were boarding the plane. How they could not make us aware of this until we were boarding the airplane is unbelievable and unacceptable. This has ruined our vacation which has been in planning for the last six months."
Pros: "Free first checked bag, comfy seats"
Cons: "Would have liked more movie selection"
Pros: "The leg room was great, the blanket and pillow provided was great and the crew did not disturb me."

Pros: "Very professional"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "KLM lost one piece of my luggage"
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
Pros: "Good for both."
Cons: "Bigger seats."
Pros: "Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!"
Pros: "Time was excellent even considering a connection delay they had. Very polite crew members. Good entertainment options."

Cons: "No reading light in my seat..."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "We got to Amsterdam on time"
Cons: "1. Paying for the seats we chose...that will never happen again...I'll fly another airline first. 2. The food was terrible. I have flown KLM for years, this was not what I expected. 3. The plane was very dirty"
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."
Cons: "The flight advertised meals..a small pastry was served an hour into the flight. I asked when the meal would be and was told a few hours...which turned out to be breakfast..i wated all night for food that only came an hour before landing. Now hungrey and tierd.I.will not be flying klm ever again !!"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Interior of the plane was clean. Smooth landing."
Cons: "Pilot did not avoid turbulence"
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."

Cons: "Flight departing late."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"
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: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
Cons: "Tiny old cramped plane."

Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."
Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"
Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"
Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."
Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"
Pros: "Easy airport business"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "I have no complaints about the air crew. They where pleasant and attentive. Plenty of free entertainment. The food was good."
Cons: "my only complaint is the USB ports didn't work on any of the chairs that me and my family where assigned to."
Pros: "Very good flight, excellent service and good food."
Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"
Cons: "Taking off late caused me stress because I had transferring flight within less than two hours in transit originally. So we arrived later about 50 minutes so I had to manage my situation and find my next gate and be on time. And an other thing that I disliked was that I was allowed to have only one baggage which was very unusual for international flight between two countenances. And the crew was not polite enough so she made fun of my Cary-on. In short, I expected more from KLM which is famous for them being "Royal" but not acting as one of them."
Cons: "Stranded for 48 hours in Africa. Missed 3 flights due to complete incompetence, truly a horrible experience."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Pros: "Flight all good"
Cons: "Suitcase did not arrive and still not received."
Pros: "Smooth flight from Copenhagen to Berlin - uneventful which is good. They even offered free coffee and tea."
Pros: "Flight was fine...."
Cons: "....but departure wa delayed over an hour"
Pros: "food good"
Cons: "techical problems announced AFTER plane was fully boarded, took 1-1/2 hours with no refreshments offered except the water bottles at seat. However, captain did make periodic announcements as to progress of repairs."
Pros: "that there was a water and a blanket on each seat!"
Cons: "I thought there was free alcohol on international flights. that you were not allowed to use the given blanket until after take off."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "There were no announcements at all about the delays! It was confusing and poor service."
Pros: "A lot of seating space. very comfortable."
Cons: "You have to pay for wifi."
Cons: "We paid for meals that were NOT delivered"
Cons: "They seats were cramped and didn’t have a lot of cushion. The BBQ chicken lunch was not good. There needed to be more frequent water available"
Pros: "On time travel. Check In Staff were kind and engaging."
Cons: "On flight staff were minimally attentive. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "Nice staff, comfortable seats with good room, complimentary beverages with refills offered."
Cons: "Late leaving, when boarding in CPH had to wait in extremely hot area once past the desk where our boarding passes were scanned and then the area where we had to queue just prior to boarding the plane was glass and therefore extremely hot. The worst issue was that there was one family with extremely loud children with the parents doing nothing. I saw a steward way up the plane looking down at them at one stage while serving another passenger but she did nothing. I like children but this was constant with the father actually encouraging the children to make more noise once he realised that other passengers were annoyed. There were plenty of other children on the plane who were behaving. Although SAS staff were aware of this they did nothing to ensure the comfort of the other passengers. One friend of mine stood for about 40 minutes at the back of the plane and another for about 20 minutes to get away from this constant noise as it was so loud and persistent. I had to listen to music to block it out.SAS staff should have intervened because this was very loud and as I have said constant i.e. every few seconds for most of the flight."
Cons: "Seats are too small and dont recline for an 8 hour flight. You feel like an animal in a cage. No choice for dinner and no snacks between dinner and breakfast."
Pros: "On time and clean airline."
Cons: "Not helpful with stroller. Wanted us to sign off that they were not responsible for if stroller broke while handling it. Insane. They said it “might “ to big even though they didn’t know what measurements would be too big. We’ve flown for the last 3 years with this stroller but different airlines and never heard of such thing. (Since it’s the smallest city mini double stroller there is and folds flat- super small!) first time we flew SAS all. We didn’t sign anything and gate checked it and all was fine but some incompetent crew at check in. Not very helpful finding seats with all four of us. Put us in different rows. Could work on their customer service for sure."
Cons: "Rerouted without consultaton - added an extra leg to my trip including a necessary mad dash to catch the make-up flight."
Cons: "Handling of delay: - Massive delays and time wasted with individual case handling at the transfer centre in CPH when a more efficient group/bulk handling of passengers on the same flight with similar cases would make more sense. Handling of baggage during the delay. Un-necessary additional delays with baggage handling due to poor management."
Pros: "Everything was nice and smooth. Nice comfort and smooth flight, arriving slightly before the time"
Pros: "We were in an empty Plus cabin at front. Coming from Miami, the hot towel service would have been nice. I blinked and missed the service. They will quickly skip you if they can. Food weird. Salmon in a box with no bread or rice or anything and a strange savory muffin. Ate neither. No entertainment."
Cons: "See above. Sorry. Nothing was good. Came in 10 mins early!"
Pros: "Two complimentary meals in addition to complimentary blankets was very nice. Dimming the lights for sleeping was also nice."
Cons: "They did not enforce the boarding of the back of the plane after first and business class, as a person sitting in the back of the plane it was a horrible boarding experience. Should also board less rows at a time from back to front. Even though the lights were dimmed I couldn't actually sleep, since the lights were turned back on too often to try to pass out breakfast less than 4 hours after we just had dinner."
Pros: "Again, the flight was fine, and cabin crew was friendly"
Cons: "When I went to the SAS counter to print my boarding pass, the counter lady couldn't find my information. She left me at the counter and went inside to find out more info. Then when she came out, she started interrogating me forcefully, about why I got United involved with my check in for my first leg of the trip, because I am causing her to have all this extra work and etc. How dare she!!! First of all. I didn't want to involve United, the service counter at SAS was closed the entire time, and the flight on my first leg was operated by United, so i had no choice but to go to United. In fact I should be the one asking why I had to involve United in the first place. Where was SAS when I needed their help and guidance???? Why was their counter closed the entire time??? Such a poorly organized airline, I'll be wary to fly with SAS again."
Pros: "Transfer desk was remote but once found, staff was very good"
Cons: "Haven't made it yet due to late flight/missed connection"
Pros: "It was a normal flight, only a few hours long. The crew was very nice."
Cons: "Once again, just some leg, and arm space issues but that's to be expected."
Pros: "Safe departure, flight and landing."
Cons: "An in flight breakfast snack would have been appreciated. The drinks served were okay. Nothing special."
Pros: "A female pilot! Nice crew. Clean bathroom."
Cons: "No complimentary peanuts or cookies! Paying for soda or juice. Very tight legroom. Window wouldn't close."
Pros: "On time...and the staff was great"
Cons: "Seat cushions"
Cons: "The SAS Supervisor at the gate permitted all preferred-level economy class ticketed passengers to board irrespective of the amount of their carry-on items - in some cases as many as three different items and many over-sized as per the measuring box located at the gate walkway, before conducting a bag-by-bag weight check on all the remaining economy ticketed passengers. Any carry-on item over 8 kgs was refused access to the airplane, and had to be unpacked at the gate in full view of other passengers to remove all electronic devices or breakable items, prior to being left with the gate agent to be placed on the plane as checked luggage. This procedure was conducted in an officious and highly non-customer friendly way, and was embarrassing to those passengers who had to "strip down" their single bag, in particular for female passengers who had overnight clothing and toiletries. A more practical and customer appropriate approach should replace such a draconian procedure."
Cons: "Not water for children."
Pros: "The overall experience was good. The fights in there selves were cool."
Cons: "When I got to Oslo to connect to my other flight I had to do security again and the boarding was already starting. So I had to run like hell and got there on the nik of time."
Cons: "I didn't not like the fact that I had to wait too long about 9hrs in Copenhagen. The intial transit time was about 3hrs but the flight schedule was changed resulting to about 9hrs wait at the airport. Thanks to the Service representative I was given 100 Denmark money for food. I was very tired and the 9hrs wait didn't help. Overall, the Service was good. Maybe this was a one off but I wish I knew. I was going to get some rest in a holtel."
Cons: "They changed departure gate, we sat at wrong gate for most time"
Cons: "Food was of poor quality, one free soda on a 8.5 hr flight."
Pros: "Boarding process was lovely, flight attendants were very nice, very smooth flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, somewhat small for a 6-foot+ tall person to fit, especially legroom"
Pros: "I upgraded for reasonable $$ and it was great - will do it again! Flight was in time, easy, friendly service and good flight"
Cons: "A very fat man seated next to me and occupied half my seat, very uncomfortable!!!"
Pros: "Was upgraded to business class"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and I noticed how kind they were to a mother travelling along with an infant and toddler."
Cons: "I've had blankets on previous plane rides. It would have been nice to have something to cover up with."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant. Short flight, so no food was served."
Cons: "Seats are a little tight."
Pros: "Flight was fine, cr"
Cons: "Our flight TO Rome via Copenhagen was canceled and some of our party needed to find overnight accommodations in Chicago."
Pros: "same as above"
Pros: "friendly and helpful people,on time,efficient"
Cons: "Customer Service was terrible at the counter. Check in was aweful. Surpirse very expensive bag fee. There was no effort to make me aware of the bag fees before the flight. Automatic recheck of bags didn't work. Everything took longer than expected and nobody was interested in helping solve the problem."
Pros: "Flight was good and flight attendants were friendly. Really liked the snack."
Cons: "Felt like a sardine - very tight. Would have preferred a larger jet for a 3 hour flight. Would have been ok if only an hour or so. Also, not able to use online check-in for ExpressJet service so on return flight my husband and I were seated separately. Fortunately, another passenger moved so we could sit together."
Cons: "The gate for boarding was not open till it was time to board. I do not know why they could not have us sit in the boarding area, we were standing for a long time."
Pros: "Good leg room in economy class (window/isle seats), comfortable throughout the 11 hour flight."
Cons: "Meals were okay. I'm use to free food/snacks/drinks on international economy class flights, so was a bit surprised that only the two meals were included in the price of the ticket (one meal a complete meal, the second a mini meal)."
Pros: "Modern plane with big screens, PA system that one could understand, water bottle available from the start, friendly crew, on time, difficult landing at low visibility well done, checked bag ready when I arrived for pick up."
Pros: "flights themselves were fine. But see next box."
Cons: "Newark to Oslo to Kristiansand. The "connecting" flight procedure was horrible. There was no way to forward the luggage, except pick it up, and then stand in long line, check in, etc etc., as if it were an entirely new flight. On phone they told me there would be expedited procedure. It was like taking an entirely new flight. All other countries have this worked out. What happened? I nearly missed my second flight."
Pros: "food was decent, more recent tv/movie system than my first flight."
Cons: "lost my bag, no updates 24 hours later had to pay for alcoholic beverages on 9+ hour flight"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and fast, and it wasn't a full flight. The Copenhagen airport makes for a very nice layover stop. Drinks were served, but it's too short for anything else. Got us there early and with no complications."
Cons: "Seats were REALLY uncomfortable. no padding what-so-ever. Expect a flat butt st the end of the flight."
Pros: "Excellent from Chicago to Stockholm. Wonderful staff! But 70 kr for wine and no Aftonbladet available?! That definitely placed you on the same level as other airlines! That was some reasons why I chose you in the past!"
Pros: "Airbus 320"
Cons: "Lands at CDG1, the old terminal"
Pros: "Good seat"
Cons: "Free food"
Cons: "Too many delays including leading the gate due to ground staff leaving equipment behind the plane .... really ?! On the upside - announcements from 1st officer was good"
Cons: "My window seat didn’t have a window"
Cons: "Hard to get over having to recheck our luggage"
Pros: "First class check in was smooth and efficient ! Love the passage way that lead me directly to lounge"
Cons: "Service in the lounge should be improved and there is no clear direction of which gate ie Gate 10A / C / E etc when boarding . Had to check a few times to ensure it’s the right gate"
Pros: "New plane."
Cons: "Plane was late to arrive so we were delayed about 30 min. However we had sufficient notice from BA and KAYAK regarding the changes."
Pros: "It was short. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The drinks and snacks were not complimentary."
Pros: "It was cool in the plane on a hot day."
Cons: "Nothing to report, all was normal. The safety video is awful."
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Pros: "Not yet done."
Cons: "My American partner's passport expires 2 months after our return to the US. Unfortunately, the French issued a year ago the following rule: to enter France, the foreign passport must not expire at least 3 months after the return date. British Airways let us fly to London, explaining this to us, how it would be on us if there were problems further down, and that we would have to get our luggage in London. We chose to fly thinking it would be OK, we had listened to an online person who had had the same problem and the French later told him they would have let him in, also I am myself a dual citizen of France and the US, plus I am autistic, an invisible disability (in my case) that makes it impossible for me to travel alone. I usually do not even say it since not much is understood -by those who do not have it- on how to accommodate it However in London BA did not allow my partner to go on. Due to the fact yesterday was Easter Monday, the American consulate in London was closed. We have spent the night in a nearby motel and now, the next day, I am waiting alone back at the airport with our 2 large suitcases while my partner is at the American consulate. We are poor, do not have phone, currency or charger for England, and I do not do well with stress, so it is difficult. Now we cannot easily reach one another. We hope to be able to fly on a standby basis (that's what BA told us we could hopefully do) later today. Sorry for this long letter, I hope it does not bore whoever reads it (if it is even read :). Anne-Laure"

Cons: "We waited on the tarmac to deplane longer than we were in the air."

Pros: "The plane was new. The crew was awesome and the flight short."
Cons: "No complimentary drinks, not even water."
Pros: "Lucky enough to get an empty seat next to us."
Cons: "Forced to gate check a bag for no reason; there was plenty of room and other similar bags were allowed through."
Cons: "30 minute delay. No boarding announcements except for "final call - doors closing in 2 minutes""
Cons: "2 of 3 luggage kissed transfer at Heathrow to the Paris flight despite 2:30 hrs layover and arrived on next flight 4 hrs later"
Cons: "We had to go back to philadelphia after flying for 2.5hoyrs, landing at Bangor, waiting for the maintenance team to figure out the problem. We then had to wait for another flight for 4h before being able to go to paris.."
Pros: "Lots of shopping but that may not be good since pickpockets are everywhere"
Cons: "Police (more) presence required to prevent thefts"
Pros: "The plane was not full and therefor gave us an opportunity to spread out."
Cons: "No complaints as this flight was pretty empty we had all the room we needed"
Cons: "You charged me for coffe after flying all night"

Cons: "We were mislead on gate assigment which impacted our whole experience. There was no entertainment"
Pros: "everything went smoothly"
Pros: "We made it safely"
Cons: "No USB or outlet ports for charging the devices. Excuse me, but it is 2017."
Pros: "I had extra leg room."
Cons: "The TV screen was in a stick and it had been used so much that if I didn't pull it forward all the way it would not stay up. Then when you try to put it down it hits the wall in front of you and doesn't tuck in."
Pros: "Loved how easy it was to board the plane."
Cons: "That there was a child who would not stop yelling but that is not your fault."
Cons: "It has been a week and British airways still hasn't delivered my suitcase."

Cons: "Baggage didn't make the connection. No free food or drinks"
Pros: "Good food Welcoming and friendly flight attendants Amazing selection of movies, TV shows, games Excellent customer service Comfy seats with ample legroom"
Cons: "My seat did not recline at all. When notifying the flight attendants during the meal/beverage service, they said they would note down my seat. However, nobody ever gave me any assurances that they would really inform maintenance to resolve the problem. Half way through the flight, my screen froze. Nothing would start it up again. After waking up hours later, I informed the flight attendant and she was able to reset/restart my screen individually. Everything worked perfectly afterwards"
Pros: "Comfortable seating"
Pros: "We appreciated the friendliness of the male Flighr Attendant during the boarding process."
Cons: "The landing announcement by the female Flight Attendant was inaudible (too close to the microphone?), and very uninspiring especially for tourists who were landing in wonderful Paris(!!!!!!!) from a 20-hour travel day. Wow."
Pros: "Cabin crew always professional. The cabin was fresh and new."
Cons: "the leg room In club Europe is appalling. No premium feel at all."
Cons: "British Airways didn't have my leg of this flight (London to Paris) as part of original checkin from Austin to London. As a result I stood in Customer relations line for 90 minutes, missed my flight, and was separated from other member in my travel party who didn't experience same problem and we were both on same booking confirmation"
Cons: "Lost my luggage and failed to deliver my luggage on time. I had to go out of my way to buy everything again."
Pros: "My flight boarded easily,left on time."
Cons: "The food. Portions were made for a child. Nasty tasting. The ideal was throw gravy on it and it will taste alright. There's no effort at all. Asked stewardness. Twice for water and never got it."
Pros: "Saved 5 hours by being changed to a non-stop for the same fee."
Cons: "Working with Iberia to get accessible seating took ten irritating phone calls."
Pros: "Entertainment system functionality and selection was excellent."
Cons: "Tv screen does not tilt so when person in front puts their seat back it makes it hard to see. Probably only a problem in economy."
Pros: "got there alive"
Cons: "booked British Airways, got American Airlines. I didnt want American airlines. I would have booked American Airlines if I wanted American airways. there was no indication that the flight would be operated by any other than British air until I got to the check counter at British airways, and they sent me to the excruciatingly long check in line for American."
Pros: "The customer service people were very helpful after we missed our flight but it would have been better if they were proactive in helping passengers who had limited time to get to their transfer gates."
Cons: "Reactive rather than proactive staff ... They should have informed us of a fast track lane if there were any but too many were standing around not helping. But the system was terrible ... Maybe it was just that particular day."
Cons: "The seats have zero leg room, it was quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "The food and service was good. The seats in coach were uncomfortable and the entertainment was subar as there were only 8 or so movies no being recent release"
Cons: "The lack of decent movies"
Cons: "I booked a british airways flight and found myself boarding a partner company plane of American Airline with not personal screens, with a very chaotic boarding and had a 40 minute delay."
Pros: "Arrived at my destination"
Cons: "Bought British Air tickets, got their partner airline American Air flight instead and didn't know of this switch until after purchase. Very rude! Crappy old plane, departed late, crappy food, mediocre service. I wanted British Air specifically as they are good in these areas."
Pros: "For a reasonably priced flight the comfort and free drink/snack were above average and very much appreciated."
Cons: "BA's online check in let them down though; the server kept crashing. They also wanted to charge £15 to pick one's seat, even at point of check in, a tacky ploy to pad profits. Forgiven on this instance as the flight was only 50 min, but would make me think twice for any longer distances."
Pros: "Direct airline"
Cons: "Delay, as usual on this rout because the airplane is too old and always have michanical problems From the inside it looks too old"
Pros: "There were free snacks. Not much, but since free snacks are almost non-existent on flights in the US,, something is better than nothing."
