Pros: "I couldn’t eat the chicken for lunch, and I told the crew to change it for me and bring the vegetarian, but nobody brought anything. I was starving until the next meal."
Cons: "Take out the chicken sausage from your menu"

Pros: "N"

Cons: "Qatar Airways could improve food selection for business class."

Pros: "Response is the same as above"

Pros: "Really good"

Pros: "No WiFi in most of the flight duration"

Pros: "I really appreciated that my bags were not lost"

Pros: "Flight was uneventful, left on time. Chocolate cake was delicious."
Cons: "I would have liked rear and forward camera live feed to show actual flight"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "All the food was terrible breakfast lunch and dinner I was sick from eating chicken I started vomiting as soon as I was on my way home , please serve better food , food tastes like factory junk , please offer cold drink and cold water or least ask if you would like ice, all the cups for the beverages was small, seating was very uncomfortable not enough room especially if you sitting next to a large person they kept elbow me and taking up my seating , I was so miserable on a 16 hours flight on Qatar to LAX , very bad experience , please do better, also staff was not friendly"

Cons: "Just had a hard time finding flight attendants. Every time I went to the back of the plane, half a dozen of them were sitting around and chatting it up. Felt guilty for asking for water. Not the service that I expected from Qatar Airways. All 4 flights were a struggle to get proper service."

Cons: "The seats are smaller than other airlines.My entertainment system stopped working mid-flight on a 16 hour flight from Doha to LAX.Food portion is not enough. No hot towels on boarding, no welcome drink or snacks. Food is served only twice on a 16 hour flight.Rude immigration officers"

Pros: "Food was good and so was the crew, entertainment was better than expected."
Cons: "Obviously the seat could have been roomier but still good."

Pros: "Excellent service with attention to detail"
Cons: "lay-flat seats fairly uncomfortable in the lay-flat position (does not compare to the Q Suite used on newer aircraft) Entertainment system a bit dated, but decent selection"

Pros: "Overall great service!"

Pros: "I liked that the flight was not full and I was able to use the entire row of seats and lie down as straight as possible to get some sleep. The crew was very friendly and allowed us to sleep most of the flight --- I guess they figured that most of the travelers prefer to just sleep and not be disturbed during a 15-hour flight. There was a good selection of movies and shows to watch to pass the time. I liked that there was time to go on the city tour of Doha and that there is a counter at the airport for the city tour."
Cons: "My flight started in Kathmandu and the layover for the connecting flight from Doha to LAX was 12 hours. I hope Qatar can come up with a schedule that will reduce the layover down to less hours while still giving passengers time to go on the city tour, if they want to."

Pros: "Great crew and food served was nice for airline food."
Cons: "You need to bring a snack with you. This is a 16 hour flight and there is a long time between their food services. 2 meals and one snach"

Cons: "TOOO long."

Pros: "I got an aisle seat. Bathrooms were not bad in terms of cleanliness."
Cons: "Service was ok. I was forgotten to be served items that other passengers were given. Seating ended up being kind of cramped as passenger in front was relaxing a bit too much. Entertainment was ok."

Pros: "Business class was good Cabin crew service was impeccable Vegetarian meals were good Need more choices"
Cons: "Old aircraft Toilets were non functional but the crew kept them clean Entertainment systems were not functioning with remote Need complete overhaul of these Not enjoyable on a long flight"

Pros: "Direct nonstop flight out of Doha, Qatar. It’s a 16 hour flight, so I’d suggest fly business if you can."
Cons: "None to rant about."

Pros: "Great service, friendly and helpful"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Food was good, staff was excellent."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment and food was good."
Cons: "Long flight from Doha to LA."

Pros: "very nice crew please have good dessert"

Cons: "Thanks"

Cons: "The employees were not motivated to work. Food was scarce and I was left starving the whole flight. On a 16 hour flight, there should be more food and beverage service other than the 2 times the attendants served us. How can we stay hydrated if we aren't being given any liquids?"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Again amazing wonderful flight attendants!!! Excellent service!!! I'm sooo impressed!!! Great food!"

Pros: "Good attitude from staff"

Pros: "Airport staff were friendly, Flight crew were good. I was in an exit row so I can't comment much about normal economy, but my legroom was fine. lots of movies to choose from. Deplaned onto a bus, that took us right to the Transfer Security which saved me a recently long walk."

Pros: "crew were all very nice & eager to please. they did keep refreshing the bathrooms which was needed."
Cons: "seat was next to bathrooms which were used constantly & the noise made it difficult to sleep. seat did not recline & seemed to be at an uncomfortable angle. flight was full so nothing could be done. entertainment very out dated as far as movies & you do need them on a 16 hour flight!"

Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"

Pros: "Same"

Cons: "Seats in economy very uncomfortable for long Doha to LAX flight. When person in front of us reclines seat for entire flight, it is almost impossible to get out to stretch legs or go to restroom. At the minimum, crew should ask all passengers to raise seats during meal service as a courtesy to those behind them. This is done on other airlines."

Pros: "Nt bad"
Cons: "Attendants were skiving at the back"

Pros: "on time no one in my row so i got to sleep good food"
Cons: "enoyed it all"

Pros: "Staff were polite and helpful. Flight was smooth and on time. Overall very good considering length of flight and difficulty of accommodating such a large crowd for such a long time."
Cons: "Meal service was very disappointing. 16 hour flight with one meal at the beginning, one meal at end, and a small, rather unappetizing hot pocket like sandwich in between? And snack offerings were ice cream, potato chips, candy bars and a few apples (ran out of apples). Need more healthy options. There needs to be a more full meal/snack offering around the half way mark if you are going to keep people from grumbling."

Pros: "New plane. Decent legroom."
Cons: "Not enough food was served for a 16.5 hour flight."

Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."

Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent, very nice and accomodating"
Cons: "Check in staff and customer service reps were unprofessional and unhelpful. We had an 8 hour layover on both legs, no access to the lounge or a hotel was provided. I explained we were on our way to our wedding and it would be nice to have some rest. They were rude with the way they told us no, they even suggested we sleep on the floor of the airport. We ended up paying for the lounge, but then so did about 1000 other people, there was no room for us to sit together. My wife's allergy free meal wasn't provided on the first flight. We had to speak to about 5 people to get a meal ticket at the airport and they were very reluctant to give us one. I told them she was hungry and needed to eat. They told us we could take the meal we got with the ticket on board, when we went to use the ticket we had no choice in meal, were given a coke at 6am and weren't allowed to heat up our meal or take it on board. In summary, all the cabin crew on all 4 flights were excellent. Staff at Doha airport were incredibly poor."

Pros: "The food was amazing and so were the staff, would definitely fly Qatar again and recommend it to others!"
Cons: "The layover is very short, my first flight from LAX to Doha was 40 mins late so I barely made last call from Doha to Dubai and my bags didn't make it. I did however have my luggage delivered the next day to where I was staying in Al Ain for free so that was great!"

Pros: "Overall - Flight was good."
Cons: "Food quality should be improved. Most of the staff were very courteous, except on two minor request. I guess the stewardess was a little stress due a very demanding passenger, but should not be reflected to other customers."

Pros: "Qatar airways always seems to handle busy flights and crammed seats calmly, efficiently and on time. It's a long haul - 16+ hours, and if you have to go economy as a 6 foot tall person, their seats recline well, seemingly better than many. You have to plan your long layovers, and they do offer assistance with hotel transfers, but they don't advertise this very clearly - so do your homework before flying!"

Pros: "I liked the food and the entertainment ."
Cons: "My seat was broken so I sat up right for 16 hours. To top it off I needed to use the toilet REALLY bad but was denied even though we were SITTING on the runway for 20 mins. When I FINALLY get to use the toilet, after a smaller Asian girl and a taller Indian girl were getting bags of blankets out of, I leave a WOODEN CLIPBOARD full of VERY important papers that will cost me inside. Yet when I call to retrieve them they are "nowhere to be found" so you're telling me out of those 2 women, the Indian gentleman, the black woman & the other Asian woman back there didn't notice a clipboard when I was the only person back there trying to use the toilet or they simply threw a wooden and metal clipboard away ?? With what was clearly paperwork clipped onto it ? The girl at the service desk of Qatar airways claims to have looked herself. But she was rushing me off of the phone so I don't feel like she remotely cared even a little. I am PAST unhappy. So thank you for throwing my paperwork away I know for sure was left behind. Very thorough team."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very courteous and attentive. Comfortable seats and smooth flight. Didn't feel that the flight lasted for 16 hours."
Cons: "Food needs to be asked for rather than offered."

Pros: "bathrooms had liquid on the floor sloshing around from about 1 hr after take off. Flight attendants need a disposable towel to put down. Nasty bathroom are not pleasant."
Cons: "i was blessed with 3 seats in a row. Had trouble lying down because the arm rests don't go up all the way. The seat belt connectors were not recessed, so they poked me in the side. The movie selection was only so - so. See the selection from Singapore airlines if you want to see a good example. I have many food allergies - for the sweet & savory snacks, the ingredients are in Latin - like a place holder ready for when they get the real words to put there. e.g. dolorem ipsum ..."

Pros: "***You're asking me about a flight that hasn't happened yet. I'm rating my flight FROM LOS ANGELES TO DOHA, 10/23/2016, here: Flight attendants were very good, helpful, gracious. For a long flight the restrooms stayed clean."
Cons: "The food was over cooked, and lacked freshness. I had to have the same meal twice because they ran out of the omelettes. Next time I will try Emirates."

Pros: "I liked the ability to check in online"

Pros: "food is really bad, people are not taking social distancing seriously"

Cons: "Very comfortable and well run."

Cons: "I would definitely have vegetarian food. 30% of population is vegetarian"

Pros: "The service was excellent. They are very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Maybe refresh the plan in the near future. Other then that it was very enjoyable trip."

Cons: "Vegetarian meals can be better"

Cons: "same as before on luggage as it was directly sent to SFO The security check again was painful as it was just a transfer and we only had 1 hr in between, didnt think there are additional security check again for transfers"

Cons: "Not stealing expensive gifts from my suitcases. That was very disappointing"

Pros: "Service and food was excellent. Good choice of movies. Also liked the cleaning of bathrooms. Seemed like they cleaned after each person used it. Remarkable."

Cons: "On time"

Pros: "Great good entertainment n crew provided warm and courteous service"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process n the seats are not the best- not bad just not as good as everything else."

Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Lack of drinks offerdd"

Pros: "Everything was more than perfect. Thanks Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "On board internet must be faster."

Cons: "Seating too tight/ crew staff members at Istanbul airport"

Cons: "The Bus carried all passengers to the plane . There was No help or assistance available for Handicapped passengers We had to climb the stairs. The person in front of me had Only one leg to stand on and was using crutches to climb the stairs This was like a survival of the fittest test and a horrible Experience. The Airline should provide assistance at the Boarding stairs."

Pros: "We like that everything was on time. The food service was excellent and we enjoyed that entertainment was provided on such a short flight."
Cons: "The boarding process on the flights between Istanbul and Sofia were somewhat chaotic.We had boarding group assignments, but there were no announcements for these groups."

Cons: "No, disappointments:)"

Cons: "See sbove"

Cons: "The Istanbul airport is very large and there are many people. The signage is generally pretty good, but it was confusing getting off the airplane from Berlin and seeing a sign saying something like " foreigners." I waited in that very long line for at least 30 minutes which ate up most of my layover time. Only to find out that it was for people with visas coming into Turley. I was directed to another, poorly marked, line for people transferring planes."

Cons: "Inability to get a full can of soda and beverages with ice, Wild kids who ran amuck in the cabins, insonsistent ventilation it was hot one minte freezing the next."

Pros: "Delicious food, amenities kit with socks, slippers, earplugs, toothpaste and more, fantastic entertainment system, power plugs and USB plugs at every seat."
Cons: "The laptop on board ban is a mess. As we were flying to the US, we had to go through literally 4 security checks one after the other. Then, all of our electronics (laptop, camera, even headphones) other than our phones had to be taken. As everyone had to go through it , this delayed our flight by 1 hour. When we landed, we waited literally 1.5h before they started handing out our electronics. All in all, it took me 4 hours to leave the airport."

Cons: "Policy"

Cons: "Boarding took way too long - I waited in my seat with no air conditioner sweating so much."

Pros: "As with the departure, everything was smooth for those who had no carry-on laptop"
Cons: "The new carry-on laptop caused a delay of about 1 hr before departure and arrival an hour late, then claiming the laptop was almost a nightmare with long queue after picking up the luggages, one has to also claim their laptops in a make shift station In the baggage claims area. My suggestion is to put the computer laptops in alphabetic order by last name/surname, with the claim ticket,for easier access when picking up. As for departure, probably at check in to inform them that if you have a laptop carry-on so that can be taken care of right away as not to delay departure when they take it at the departing gate. This should be done at check in if in Turkey, or as a transferring traveler, to inform the traveler to take care of that as soon as arrived to transferring destination and for the traveler not to wait until boarding time at the boarding gate."

Pros: "Price, service."
Cons: "Can not take a laptop or Kindle on board (no fault of Turkish Airlines, but still an option available when flying from other places to the US)."

Cons: "We had to wait about one hour after sitting."

Pros: "Courteous"
Cons: "Nice people"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Turkish airlines is the worst of the worst."

Cons: "It didn't happen and I wasn't notified"

Pros: "The meals was good"

Pros: "I liked the accurate time for departure and landing, the meals was ausom and delicious and the plane was new and comfotable."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "they lost my luggage by my first stop"

Pros: "The whole experience was great. After an excellent meal which included drinks before and an excellent wine selection the flt attendants came through and made up a bed for you. This included a cover for the seat, a blanket and a big pillow. As opposed to United where you have to stick your feet in a little cubby the Turkish plane has just an open bench which opens to provide storage and gives ample foot room. I have never slept so much on a flt. Also he bathrooms are much more spacious than others."
Cons: "Really nothing."

Cons: "They cancelled my flight days before leaving the country or origin, leaving me incredibly inconvenienced."

Pros: "Great service. On time. Friendly personnel."

Pros: "The steward was very nice. He let me store my special salad and pudding."

Pros: "Lots do watch/do on the console. Smooth flight. Responsive staff when available."
Cons: "Perhaps because of Istanbul security measures, but all water removed before boarding plane, with no chance to get more. Stewards couldn't give out bottles of water, only those little cups from time to time. They could bring more of those little cups when you called for them, but not during turbulence. So having no access to water was not great (or planned out on their part). Also, no random sweeps of the aisle by the stewardess from time to time, to check on comfort. My seat kept being pushed by passenger behind me. Flight into Istanbul two weeks prior was great all around. This knee was filled with too many negative moments."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Overall not a good experience"

Pros: "- nice treats around take off (turkish delight and Superman v Batman Chocolate cake) - good in-flight entertainment selection"
Cons: "- service was slow and steward/esses took awhile to respond to service calls; were not that friendly - trash wasn't picked up"

Pros: "Fast, efficient, confortable, nice flight attendants, good food."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The plane was very cold"

Pros: "flights on time.."
Cons: "Our pre-ordered meals were not served"

Pros: "Great crew service and food. Great entertainment features."
Cons: "Wish services in Istanbul airport was better. Had to take a bus to the terminal and transfer directions and gate services was confusing and not very good. But this is not the airlines fault."

Cons: "The fact that they were not helpful to my dad"

Cons: "Connection was too long to Dubai"

Pros: "It was to hot on the plane , I told them 3 times and still nothing chaged .... I don't think I fill fly with them on the future."

Pros: "Great selection of movies. Really got a kick out of the Batman vs. Superman stuff! :)"
Cons: "I was a bit tight in my seat, and when I went towards the back of the plane, I saw a number of people had a whole row to themselves. It would have been nice if the spacing was better so more of us could be less cramped."

Cons: "Two hours late leaving Sofia."

Cons: "Three hours departure delay from Munich to SFO"

Pros: "Incorrect carrier! I missed the flights because of them !!!"

Pros: "Cabin staff were cheerful and helpfully"
Cons: "We had 4 luthansa flights in a week I appreciate that we were given a drink one up on BA ! However I am trying not to be picky every snack was chocolate 26 grames per 100g not great for a diabetic !!!! It would be lovely to have a savoury option"

Pros: "Absolutely amazing service"
Cons: "No any healthy snacks like nuts or just dried veggies or biscuits with less sugar."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The notifications for the change of gates by Lufthansa."
Cons: "Dairy free option for snack. Larger stock of drinks (Ran out of Beer). Made sure the luggage is loaded on to the plane! Communication to inform passengers that no luggage had made it to Birmingham as people were waiting around for hours!"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The sandwiches"

Pros: "Luggage space, comfortable seat.. huge plane"
Cons: "Ice cream was not good."

Pros: "Glad that i was able to secure a seat in the emergency exit row (row 70)"
Cons: "Wow, I am not a heavy woman, I wear a size large but I am not in the least obese, just tall and not skinny. The seat width was ridiculously tight! I have NEVER experienced such discomfort in a Emergency Row seat!"

Cons: "Sittinf in the middle"

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "What’s not to love?"

Pros: "Lots of legroom"
Cons: "As with most long-distance flights, the bathrooms got somewhat dirty though I did notice flight attendants on two occasions entering to clean them"

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "The raisin muffin was very old"

Pros: "The seating configuration was ideal (2-3-2)"

Pros: "Smooth flight. Great food and drinks. Very helpful staff."

Pros: "staff"
Cons: "major delay, poor communication andaccommodation considering delay"

Pros: "See above. The same applies."

Pros: "Love Lufthansa"

Pros: "Lufthansa flights are by far the best way to fly transatlantic!!"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Kosher food ordered was not satisfactory: meat too dry and compressed. I couldn't eat that. Overall Kosher meal was poor quality. Disappointing."

Pros: "Excellent, helpful steward."

Pros: "Overall it was a great experience."

Pros: "keep going"

Cons: "the hot meals were aweful"

Cons: "11 hours of crying babies was too much. The practice of placing 4 cribs together on the bulkhead encouraged one baby to set the others off screaming. The toddler siblings then started fussing, the parents were then jumping up and down, jostling the other passengers, it was a nightmare! Hated every minute of it."

Cons: "Too cold"

Pros: "The staff on my flight were the most friendly crew I have ever had on a flight. They were enjoyable to interact with and went out of their way to help guests. I also appreciate that they wake you up if you are asleep while meals are being passed out; I have missed meals on planes before which is not a great experience on a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "The only negative aspect about the flight were that the seats were a little uncomfortable. There weren't any foot pedals to lift your legs and the seats were extremely close together which was uncomfortable on such a long flight."

Pros: "Chairs were uncomfortable, mainly due to the front passenger was always in reclined mode, and the passenger behind me wouldn't let me recline... He would literally push my chair up, but that's probably because his chair can not recline!"
Cons: "We needed to place special request on vegetarian meal, couldn't do it at booking or at checkin, was told to let crew know, they said it's too late. They brought us an "unclaimed" vegetarian meal, but it wasn't, it was Asian halal meal with lamb! After I let crew member know wmy husband was served meat instead, she denied it and said "its not possible" as the wrapper says "vegetarian". I informed her it actually said "Asian halal", she the proceeded to say, well, "i am sorry if it's wrong, but I gave you vegetarian". That said crew member collected my husband's plates while I was in the bathroom and came back later with a "vegan" plate that they now have available."

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Boarding was delayed by 30 minutes but they did not inform us of the delay so everyone stood in line the entire time."

Pros: "Wonderful overall"

Cons: "seat did not recline at all,"

Cons: "Delated and boarding was a mess"

Pros: "crew, cleanliness"
Cons: "very little legroom, very uncomfortable for travellers who cannot afford business class"

Cons: "Terrible delay and plane was ridiculously old. Delay as they had to replace a part. It had duck tape in the bathroom holding the shelves"

Cons: "Big Screen at front of cabin when I am 2 rows behind kept me awake Boarding was a mess, not really enoughpreboarding space to hold everyone. Organizers were rude and signs were confusing."

Cons: "Too hot and stuffy. No air."

Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "More food"

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "WIFI"

Pros: "Rude inconsiderate staff. Terrible plane"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "The food was so cheap... pasta and a muffin. I’ll be looking around for another airline."

Pros: "New dream-liner from Wew to ORD"

Pros: "Space, happy vibes, clean"
Cons: "Nothing it was super"

Cons: "Overhead space on plane was very limited."

Pros: "Special kosher meal was good!!!"
Cons: "Would like access to coffee more often. :) Internet/wireless did not work for entire flight. Aisles super small. Overall - great experience!"

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Lost baggage is never good."

Pros: "Very good flight crew. Decent food and nice entertainment."
Cons: "Poor web site. Very poor boarding crew. Boarding crew made no announcements for who must get re-elected ticketed for shares carrier tucked or web site ticketed passengers. No prep boarding plan given therefore mass at gate."

Pros: "Again as in previous flight very efficient professional and pleasant staff ."
Cons: "Seat reservation system didn't work ,reserved one seat and got another.Food portions were smallish .No internet over the Atlantic .While the multimedia service was phenomenal I guess there could have been a larger variety and more episodes would have been good as well ."

Cons: "They lost my bag and refused to deliver it to my house once it was found. It is still at the airport"

Cons: "Long delay."

Pros: "Arriving alive. Attentive service was a nice bonus."
Cons: "I am alive. Everything else seems utterly petty (even the total lack of dancing monkeys!)"

Pros: "The check in crew were great. They checked my overweight carry on with no problem for free Free alcohol"
Cons: "The food was not edible"

Cons: "muffin for breakfast ?"

Pros: "Everything was excellent"

Pros: "Absolutely nothin Airlines was courteous enough to provide hotel which was just abt ok"

Cons: "Thechnical problems with the plane.One hour we were sitting in the plane and waiting departure"

Pros: "Flight crew & overall experience was positive. Meal & entertainment were good."

Pros: "Flt was great - service was great"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Ended up on Swiss Air. Only good thing about Austrian was they booked us on other flights at the check in desk."

Pros: "Ground crew was very kind"
Cons: "My ordered vegetarian meal was missing on the way back :("

Pros: "Got to destination safe and sound and was thankful for that!"
Cons: "Boarding was messy. Food was ick- "chicken" tasted like a grade d boiled chicken nugget, terrible texture. Ladies on flight were kind, although not terribly helpful. Movie selection was pretty small and lots of Rated R movies, hard to find anything in the middle (not kids, but not adult)."

Cons: "Our home was damaged, and we were without power for 6 days due to Hurricane Irma. We called the airlines repeatedly in an effort to cancel the ticket before the flight. They refused to cancel the tickets. Heartless"

Pros: "Free drinks."

Cons: "Maybe I should ask for vegetarian meal, because the meal I got was not tasty at all."

Cons: "- My flight was rescheduled twice. Very short connection time, they said that there are no other options but actually there were other options. - Bad web check-in service. There were errors/bugs in the check-in service."

Pros: "The aircraft was very clean. Very friendly crew."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "The birding officer didn't inform me about the visa requirements to cross from Dusslouf to Vinna airport. This caused a big problem for me in the airport, where I: 1- Wasn't allowed to catch my flight ti Vinnea and this was both financial and time lost for me. 2- I was locked in Dussluff airport for more than 14 hours, I was threatened to be sent back to USA or any other country. This caused physiological damage for me, as I been treated like an animal 3- I was asked to pay for my new ticket ( Dussloff - Istanbul-Amman )"

Cons: "Please change food, enough of pasta every time."

Pros: "All flight members were servicing very pleasantly"

Pros: "Right on schedule!!"

Pros: "Pleasant flight crews on all flights."
Cons: "Cramped seating in coach."

Cons: "Too many customers use more than their fair share of the overhead space. A lot of passengers placed their luggage and their personal item above. This left those of use who use only our fair alottment searching for a place for what we fairly should be allowed to use."

Cons: "Technical issues with website and online check-in. Boarding was poorly organized. Food could be better (e.g, breakfast muffin was terrible). Also availability and varienty of alcoholic drinks could be better. Flight was delayed and therefore my luggage didn't make it to connecting flight.."

Pros: "Flying on a direct flight was nice. The food was good. Ordinarily the snack lunch is not good but the sandwich was quite good."
Cons: "The boarding is best if done by rows but this was just every one trying to board at the same time so it has a more negative effect on passengers."

Pros: "Good service overall"

Pros: "I enjoyed the flight along with my girlfriend from beginning to end. The flight attendants were very courteous & the service was fast & the food & drink portions were generous."

Pros: "Excellent service on airplane, ample legroom in economy, the largest movie selection I've seen on a flight, delicious food. I had the vegetarian option and I was not disappointed."
Cons: "The boarding process at Vienna airport was unorganized and took longer than necessary."

Pros: "Clean aircraft, nice crew, efficient boarding, small airport (Varna)"

Pros: "I loved absolutely everything..the service and food were amazing. I will recommend this airline to everyone I know..and definitely will use again. Thank you! You made 9 hours very bearable."
Cons: "Can't answer this question because everything was fantastic."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "All"

Pros: "Excellent personnel. Will use Austrian Airlines again!"

Cons: "We paid in advance for Do & Co meals but the crew did not notice we had done so. We had to ask them to go find them, and by then there was not enough time left to heat them and eat them"

Cons: "It was advertised as Austrian Airlines but when the details came through afterwards only then did it state that it was a United Airlines flight. So, I can't rate this flight because it had nothing to do with Austrian Airlines. You need to update your site so that it clearly states "Operated by..." when people are booking."

Pros: "The plane size & comfort was excellent. The staff were very friendly"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Almost everything, especially the crew."
Cons: "Don’t feel like anything should be better to be honest"

Cons: "Seats in economy section are very close together . There is not enough room for knees...especially for such a long trip."

Cons: "Not being 1 hour late"

Pros: "Very friendly crew and on time with no problems."

Cons: "Boarding was very slow."

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: "Everything was smooth and effortless."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything."

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time flight."

Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."

Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"
Cons: "As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights."

Pros: "Cabin Crews was extremely good and hospital. Transfer point staff buggy / wheal Chair was good and second to none."
Cons: "Transfer point needs upgrade."

Pros: "The crew were amazing and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Keep up the good work"

Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"

Cons: "No reading light in my seat..."

Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"

Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"

Pros: "Nice crew pilot food and beverage"
Cons: "No wifi"

Cons: "Still waiting to board after missing this connection had to be booked on another airline"

Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."

Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."

Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."

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: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."

Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."

Pros: "We got a meal for a 1h flight only"
Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"

Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"

Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Cons: "No charging ports for electronic devices."

Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."

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: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."

Pros: "Pretty basic one hour flight so there's not much to complain about or praise about. I got some sleep which was good."
Cons: "The crew had their general Dutch aloofness on form. Chatted to one of the stewardesses in Dutch up until she saw I had a British passport then she decided she could only speak English to me."

Pros: "was very quick"

Pros: "Crew was very helpful.food"
Cons: "Food was not upto the mark."

Pros: "good service"

Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"

Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"

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: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"

Pros: "Easy airport business"

Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"

Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"

Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliablity."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."

Pros: "It was very comfortable"
Cons: "The crew was great"

Pros: "Newer plane. Dimming windows, upgraded bathroom. Flight crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't announced. Limited in flight movie selection. Food was average. Same dessert for both meals served."

Pros: "- entertainment systen was OK (movies), but has no current news - food was good - windows can be darkened progressively"
Cons: "- Schiphol airport (AMS) is small, crowded, noisy; no water fountains; toilets are dirty and insufficient in number; SFO is much better - KLM boarding process was chaotic (not by group or row number), boarding/security personnel (4 old guys) didn't have a clue - 787 is noisy, chairs are uncomfortable (my back still hurts) and very close together, they also recline way too much - food trays not collected promptly - noisy babies on all flights - clearly not enough cabin crew for a full flight - no or wrong info by pilots on timing (crew are always lying anyway) - gate is all around the back at SFO (long taxi to get there) - they inserted people in wheelchairs during deboarding thus holding everybody up."

Cons: "Terrible moslem food, too much lentil with tasteless chicken"

Pros: "The price was nice."
Cons: "Plane looked unkept on exterior. Crew was nice but lazy."

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."
