Service was excellent but food was mediocre
Check in staff and baggage crew is never responsive or available.
The check in process was long and could have been faster if more staff was available. The line of passengers was too long and there was no one to guide the line. The boarding process was a bit better. Although several announcements were made regarding mask wearing, it was not fully enforced on the flight. This left me feeling unsafe considering the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and flu season.
I liked the Crew . The food was terrible .I was starving. I couldn't eat the food.
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "When a very large man is placed next to someone else who is in a middle seat and cannot use the arm rests on either side, I would think the hostesses would make an effort to move one of the three considering there were multiple other open seats. He was also very old and could hardly stand up when needed. It was the most uncomfortable flight, if I had the money, I would definitely fly business class"
Pros: "seat was okay, far from comfortable, plane too cold, although they did have blankets, late boarding, no particular reason, it's probably not Qatar's fault, but baggage service at JFK was terrible."
Pros: "The crew was super amazing and went to all extent to make our journey with infant comfortable"
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: "Very efficient and comfortable flight."
Cons: "The airline appears to have done away with the courtesy pack, and this was the one time I was travelling without ear plugs!"
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."
Cons: "During check-in, I observed inconsistent application of rules with respect to hand luggage. My carry-on and laptop bag combined were 12 kgs and was told that I had to pay excess baggage fees. While, there were quite a few people on the plane whose hand luggage was clearly above 12 kgs."
Cons: "Crew members are waking up for lunch and breakfast but not for snacks and other beverages. We are feeling hungry later. we aren't knowing when they ll provide."
Pros: "I am very pleased to travel with Qatar airways. Qatar airways and Singapore Airlines are the best companies."
Cons: "I was a little bit annoyed with the staff at the Doha airport at the boarding gate because she did not let me get in to boardin in priority even though with my privilege club card, I do have to insist after the call for zone 1 to proceed for boarding."
Pros: "US airlines should model Qatar. New plans with exceeding long courtious staff who are happy to make your flight as comfortable and pleasant as possible."
Cons: "The food was actually very good, nothing was an extra charge and the flight attendants were wonderful. US airlines should really do a better job!"
Pros: "The food and service."
Pros: "Good movie selection, very friendly crew"
Pros: "Food was good and staff was friendly."
Cons: "Had to wait 3 hrs because of a system malfunction. And had a screaming toddler behind me the entire 13 hr ride. The headrest on the seats are very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Food service was poor; food trays were arranged in a sloppy way; in fact the tray that came to me was not clean at all. First meal service from Doha to Washington (IAD) took nearly 2.5 hours to reach my home after the service started. The male attendants were sloppy, not well organized. When asked why it takes so long, the answer I got: "We were not prepared to meet the customer's preferences." But that does not excuse the long delay in serving row 36."
Pros: "Nothing about American Airlines Never ever to travel with it again"
Cons: "Passengers service bad Air hostesses just rude I Don’t even know why someone wants to work When they can’t even smile There were few seats were empty but they were offered to fellow passengers who happens to be different colors Person Then me America airline lost my family business for ever"
Pros: "crew was excellent, very attentive"
Cons: "food - i am not a fussy eater but it's as if qatar tries do please too many tastes and does not suceed at any. why not have middle eastern food choices too? but then i guess you can't argue with the price"
Cons: "Connecting Qatar flight should have been held, instead wen had to spend 9 hours in the airport until next flight"
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight,it was a smooth trip from Doha to Manila, the Cabin Crew received adequate training on taking care of people, as a professional nurse who is use to taking care of others ,I see someone else looking after me and I really appreciate their efforts. Shortly before we landed at Manila, we were informed that in order to meet international flight rules and regulations that insecticide will be sprayed we were advised to cover our nose,as a medical personnel I see it not good cos it can trigger an Asthmatic attack in a known asthmatic patient ,it was a lovely journey"
Cons: "I enjoyed their meal and services wanted to be Oliver Twist"
Cons: "Everything was disappointing"
Pros: "The foods on the plane and the time as they said it happened I mean no delay."
Cons: "The most thing the foods were hot and fresh."
Cons: "Observed that one flight attendant from India is giving more attention to a person who is from Navy. He avoided asking what we want for drinks etc. He always ignored us and pushed his cart before we answer. We are very unhappy with his behavior, however, adjusted ourselves."
Cons: "The entertainment did not include any music (classical or otherwise)."
Pros: "I like the extra space between the seats that most of their airplanes had; the exception was, I think, the 767. The crew went above and beyond to take care of your needs and always had a smile on their faces."
Cons: "The check-in process, leaving Bangkok and leaving Doha, was horrible. Why do I have to wait until 3 hours before my flight departs to check-in and get my boarding pass? This made for long lines and took about 2.5 hours to get a boarding pass in Bangkok"
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: "I like the staff and the way they treat the passengers and foods too i like , was really good"
Cons: "I didn't like the comfortable part at the plane , it's not that good plane , the spoon ,& knife are not good , the chairs are not comfortable that much as the other planes of Qatar airways,"
Pros: "Comfort and Cleaniness."
Cons: "Food and ways to provide chairs - avoiding providing wheel chairs and food requirement."
Pros: "Service offered by crew, arranged veg food when found not listed. Boston to Doha veg food loading needs improvement."
Cons: "Wait time at Doha for next flight."
Cons: "The chicken sandwich was horrendous. I saw multiple people take a bite and then put it down and not eat the rest. It tasted terrible."
Cons: "Food could have been better. Dessert was disappointing, more choice could have been good."
Pros: "Attention to detail and attentiveness of the staff was par excellence in the business class"
Pros: "they have a good movie selection"
Cons: "it took awhile for us to get our bags in denpasar."
Cons: "Boarding in India is never smooth, no difference here"
Cons: "Attendant was rude and never really finished service, never remembered any requests and consistently skipped guests when providing food or drink service, cabin kept oscillating between either too hot or too cold."
Pros: "Overall the flight was great"
Cons: "Mashed connection"
Pros: "Good quality aircrafts"
Cons: "There was no non vegetarian meal available."
Pros: "The Boing 777."
Cons: "Flight attendants English very poor."
The boarding process took FOREVER. I arrived three hours before my flight and barely made it to the gate in time for boarding and there was no waiting as all to pass through the security checkpoint. Emirates simply was understaffed on Jan 7th 2022. More importantly, the flight crew made very little effort to enforce the mask requirement and the result was everywhere you look you could see passengers with their mask not covering their nose, and then after seating many didn't have the mask covering their mouth either. It was a total health hazard. Unacceptable.
Pros: "Nothing to say"
Cons: "See the comments for — the flight from Kochi to Dubai In reality — much worst"
Pros: "Attentive crew. Responded to all requests right away."
Cons: "I think just entertainment - choice of movies ."
Pros: "The crew helped us move into a row that had an extra seat thus making the journey for us and our neighbours comfortable."
Cons: "More food service would be helpful. There were limited snacks(mostly containing chocolate or candy - which I did not prefer) and only bananas as fruit. Could have used oranges or apples for the kids."
Cons: "Emirates has great service and food. Highly recommend if you can handle a Dubai layover"
Pros: "Movies entertainment"
Cons: "Food selection available was not good in my opinion - pretty much tailored to Indian appetite and stomachs. Very pour options for juices and alternate foods."
Pros: "The entertainment options were very good"
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty. Did not have all the food options listed"
Pros: "The crew was second to none."
Cons: "The duty-free at Dubai was disappointing."
Pros: "Nothing the airline did was an issue."
Cons: "Had to sit by two middle age/older individuals who, between the two of them, got up to use the rest room or walk around 1x/hr. It was a big inconvenience for a 16hr flight"
Pros: "Great quality food for a flight."
Cons: "WiFi did not work, ever. Staff could have been a bit nicer."
Pros: "Our first two times on EMIRATES airline. 15+ hours going East and then back home. An absolute joy compared to our tired traditional USA choices. Hopefully UNITED and AMERICAN can somehow update."
Cons: "All good even on a full 400 passenger flight!!"
Pros: "Hospitality , service and food."
Pros: "I liked the passengers"
Cons: "dirty toilets,clogged,seats dirty,crew not enthousiastic, left overs from previews passengers,expired candies."
Pros: "ICE Rock solid, at least from SFO-DXB and vice version and its variation in different movies, songs"
Cons: "Economy response -- Pressing the button takes a lot of time. Collection of shawls/earphones -- Please wait for the plane to finish its flight."
Pros: "I liked the service provided."
Cons: "Would like to see decent vegetarian food options. Also please introduce some variance in your menu. the menu has been the same in the last 3 flights."
Pros: "Long but ok"
Cons: "There is no reason to not like it."
Pros: "Emirates flights are awesome and have a good stuff. Very well organized staff and good food served"
Cons: "Nothing bad."
Cons: "Everything is unlikely You got treated by your sc you got treated by your skin"
Pros: "Good food."
Cons: "Some people requesting me to exchange seats. They were young boys. This is the second time in Emirates."
Pros: "Outstanding service, extremely friendly, food was delicious, unlimited drinks including alcohol, tons of movies to watch for free, free headphones, free eye covers, free earplugs, free socks."
Cons: "The 16 hour flight"
Cons: "There was no option during check in to request meal options- ex vegetarian request."
Pros: "Staff on board was very nice and attentive. Much nicer than the crew on my outbound flight"
Cons: "Trash was not picked up frequently enough. By the end of the flight the plane was a pig sty. Also there was no toilet paper in the bathroom at the deprting airport"
Pros: "Nothing. Will not travel again on Emirates"
Cons: "Food Comfort level Flight delay"
Pros: "Flight was delayed by 7 hours because of techinical issues"
Pros: "Legroom and how attentive and pleasant the fight crew was."
Cons: "Airport staff were not very descriptive or helpful with directions. Talked to me like I was dumb...."
Pros: "- Friendly crew, they managed to get my wife and I to sit together against all odds - Seats are more comfortable than other A380 configurations"
Cons: "- Crew's organization was confusing and all meals and services got surprisingly long to complete. - Most of the time there were no drinks available for passengers to grab and go, and you had to ask specifically even to get water. - Outside of the scheduled meals, there were very few passes to offer drinks to passengers - Entertainment system had great choices but the system ran with lag and lost frames every few seconds (not only in mine, but rather across the cabin)"
Cons: "Bathrooms were not clean later in the flight"
Pros: "Attentive flight crew and spacious interior"
Cons: "Food food and food"
Pros: "The seating had enough room which made us feel comfortable. Also, the food is is per expectations"
Cons: "food could have been better. this was my first emirates flight and i was expecting high reviews, but i personally like turkish airlines better."
Pros: "A lot of newly released movies to choose from. Time goes a lot faster if you can watch three two hour movies back to back. Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Online check in could have an easier option to request a special meal. I have a mild wheat allergy. I tried to call the Dubai office after 9AM before my return trip but, nobody answered. I just skipped the pizza and I was fine."
Pros: "Good entertainment, spacious seating and a friendly staff."
Cons: "The boarding process takes longer with the Airbus 380 and the flight from Dubai to SFO is delayed very often. Staff at the airport could provide timely updates about the delay and the boarding process. I would like to see more options in the raw Vegetable diet as I got the same food for Lunch and dinner"
Pros: "Good flight with decent amenities Entertainment can be better. Food quality is going down byt still better than most"
Pros: "High quality comfortable seating, the most varied entertainment and delicious food served by smiling attractive employees."
Pros: "Choice for entertainment"
Cons: "Have travelled on Emirates several times but the Crew hospitality was poor this time. Oriental food was not good."
Cons: "Food while trip to India was good But food while trip back to sfo was very bad"
Pros: "I was okay till got to sit on their tight sits for 15 hours they could have done better. After 15 hours flight no one cared enough to guide us to rest place, because the next flight was not to the next day, was hoping to let us stay on the hotel. This was a disaster planning by the airline."
Pros: "Great airline and excellent sevice"
Cons: "Checkin associate at SFO was rude and told me that only light baggage is allowed in the plane during borading noticed several passengers with larger bags and sometime two bas as well. I was told I can only take one bag. This caused me to change my plans on what I can carry on my two small bags. This is also the reason why had to take a small handbag to keep everything I needed. I lost this bag at New Delhi airport. Had I been allowed the the standard tote and a laptop bag I may not have needed the extra hand bag and may not have lost my items. Emirates associate is partailly responsible for my lost items."
Cons: "I had given on line preference for Asian vegetarian food but was not served collection of booked luggage at cropusal at SFO ,was difficult for a senior citizen like me as there was commotion"
Pros: "The vegan meals were very good and tasty. I enjoyed the entertainment provided and the plane was very clean. At times the plane was very cold, however the blanket helped with that. It wasn't this flight but the flight from Tanzania to Dubai, the crew sprayed the plane and I would like to know what was sprayed as it was awful and what if any chemicals were sprayed on us. Perhaps it would be better to spray the plane before the passengers board the plane."
Cons: "There was only one flight attendant would didn't assist my friend when we asked her to please take my friend's food tray away. My friend Emily Bayne was having a major discomforting eye allergy attack. Emily eyes were burning, dry, turning red, and very itchy and she wanted to go to the bath room to run warms water over her eyes, however she had the food tray and so we push the attendant help button. But when the flight attendant came to see what we needed and we asked if she could please take Emily's food tray, she just said I will come back later for that. So I told Emily just go to the bathroom I will hold your food tray. Emily Bayne was seated in the middle and I had the aisle seat, 44H. While Emily was in the bathroom I complained to another flight attendant what had happened, she took our food trays and then told her supervisor what happened. The supervisor came shortly and assisted Emily by granting her request and providing her with two warm wet towels, and later 5 more. The supervisor and the other attendant that I complained to continue to check throughout the fljght to see if Emily needed anything else, which was nice and accommodating. The flight after that incident was good, as the supervisor immediately corrected the insensitive act of his flight attendant."
Cons: "All flights were delayed Boarding experience is not that great Not sufficient leg room, so cramped up Food was very average"
Cons: "Our Emirates flight was delayed for 21 hours. They didn't have enough non-vegetarian meals, we were forced to eat vegetarian breakfast and lunch throughout our inbound flight."
Cons: "Check-in counter staffs in Dubai are poorly trained and do not have service-mind at all."
Pros: "Even though I was flying economy, the seats on the A380 were wide and comfortable and the entertainment onboard was very good."
Not enough food - Very bad for a long haul. The crew put 10 sandwiches on a plate for people to grab between “meals” they went in 5 seconds. people were scrambling to be able to grab one. This happened twice (20 in total for maybe 150 passengers). People were starving! Seats are way to small even for me 5 foot 7 and 140 pounds. Entertainment was good. If you ask people to pay to check in your luggage then we travel with smaller luggage we can carry in the plane but then DON’T ask us to check them in for free. It’s ridiculous! it was on time which make it a good flight, if it wasn’t, it would have been a very bad flight.
Pros: "Everything was excellent on this flight."
Cons: "Maybe the food menu? But it wasn't bad."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and positive. The seats surprisingly reclined quite a bit. The dinner was actually good."
Cons: "The offer of wine. The wifi options."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and responsive."
Cons: "The flight was so hot. No personal air controls. Economy was horribly small."
Pros: "Food was great and abundant. Frequent service"
Cons: "Seats are too tight for such a long flight"
Pros: "Crew was great! Food was actually very good! However seats are very tight in the economy class...I’m 5’6” and 130lb and had a hard time during the 10,5h transatlantic flight.."
Cons: "No complaints about anything but the seats on this particular aircraft: Boeing 777-300ER... very tight!!! Ok for a few hours of flying but not for an 11 hour flight!!!"
Pros: "Good food and beverage options. Many movie and television selections."
Cons: "The seats were too close especially when reclined. The lady next to me got into an argument 3 times with the man behind her and no one assisted the situation. The second security check needs a better signifier that it was done. It almost made me and another man miss our flight. Miserable attendants"
Pros: "This was a 12 hour flight that didn’t feel like 12 hours. They movies and other entertainment was very good with new and older movies that didn’t disappoint. The food was great all the way through to the farewell piece of chocolate."
Cons: "The seats on this flight were very tight. I am 5’8 and felt super cramped. The seats themselves were not that bad just small and not a lot of space. If you fly with them don’t expect to kee anything under the seat with you. Also the whole boarding process is a big cluster! There is no real organization to the line or who they are boarding. Make sure you get in the line quickly or you could be waiting awhile."
Cons: "They ran out of the dinner with meat option. They offered sandwiches to some people as a snack but not sure why some people got them. The crew is okay not that friendly."
Pros: "The food was amazing, the in-flight entertainment was amazing, and the flight attendants were amazingly kind and beautiful. :) Swiss Air has set the standard on airline food, serving Swiss Chocolate and Gruyere cheese on the flight! It was the best!"
Cons: "My only concern was that there were times when I felt a little too warm. The newer Boeing 777 doesn't have passenger controlled A/C."
Pros: "The crew were helpful and polite"
Cons: "The boarding process was too long and chaotic in Zurich The seats are uncomfortably close together and there is not enough room to move at all. I would say for bigger size people, they mau even be unsafe. I have had high regards for Swiss airline until my recent trip. I will definitely look for other options for my future trips."
Cons: "12 hours flight just one hot meal."
Pros: "Crew was great. This flight is what I would expect from Swiss."
Pros: "The flight attendants qere very nice and friendly. Spoke great English. They came by often with drinks and snacks. All the food was actually good! The seats were fairly comfy and there was actually room! Even when the person in front of me leaned back, my legs still didn't touch the back of the seat (I'm 5-10 with long legs). Very happy with swiss!"
Pros: "Good space above seats"
Cons: "Seats way too tight. But the worst thing was the two passageners in the row we shared. They were laying on each other and it was inappropriate for the entire flight. He was rubbing her breast and I said something. He seemed to stop. Lots of rubbing and huggin and the man had his legs stretched out man spread style"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive. I was impressed at the amount of food we received through out the flight. My family and I enjoyed our flight with Swiss airlines and will definitely use them next time we travel."
Pros: "The staff was excellent and friendly"
Cons: "I didn't enjoy the food"
Pros: "The flight attendants were extremely polite . Great service i love my accommodation in Business class . Very clean , punctual, comfortable, up dates by pilot frequently. Over all a hard work TEAM of Flight Attendants. Thank You to all of them."
Pros: "This time I was really happy with almost everything. All crew members were nice and friendly. The food was tasty and plenty. The craft was clean and specious On line check easy and smooth. I paid my extra luggage online too for cheaper then in airport"
Cons: "My tv didn't work at the beginning but after the crew member reset it everything was perfect Thank you Swiss! ❤️❤️"
Pros: "Staff was very courteous; they fed us well"
Pros: "Nice, clean and modern airplane with great service"
Pros: "The crew on board was kind and polite when they had to deliver bad news"
Cons: "2 hour delay due to a morning delay at Barcelona, although that seemed odd. The delay was known early that morning. Flight from Barcelona to Zurich doesn't take long. Seems they could have rerouted, or at least sent an email or some notification. Also, the boarding staff at Zurich is rude and random about whom they let onboard with larger luggage or not. They held some people but not others. Middle seats have metal polls, making legroom awkward."
Cons: "I would have like an announcement to let me know what times food will be served. I woke up just as the crew had passed my row for breakfast and then couldn't get the attention of the lady to serve me breakfast. A vegan option for the menu would be excellent. The leg room on the plane was also very reduced for an 11 hour flight. I wish I would have been offered to pay an additional amount and upgrade to the business class. This option was never offered to me at check-in."
Pros: "Actually being able to breathe on this trip, as opposed to the first trip on your horrible planes."
Cons: "Being FORCED to spend extra money simply to be able to reserve the last row of two seats, in the faint hope of being able to achieve some level of comfort which was unattainable on the first flight. Having only two seats in our row and the one in front of us made the flight tolerable, but also enhanced the ludicrous ineptitude of the previous flight, wherein we were treated like so much livestock in a train car, heading for slaughter. I will never, NEVER, fly Swiss Air again."
Cons: "Was asked to give up my aisle seat (D 40) seat om a 13 hour flight for a less comfortable one (F). Put on the spot to give up my seat for a couple with a 6 month old infant due to the fact that the attachable bassinet had to be in front of the D seat. Neither the parent or myself felt very good about my displacement."
Pros: "Like to have the gluten free option for food. I know i chose it when i got the ticket but i did not get it."
Pros: "The flight attendants were perfect and very professional. I had a toothache on both flights back and forth. And on both flights, the crew members were always keeping an eye on me. Thanks so much. And also the pilots did an amazing job on making the flight as smooth as possible, love the 777! Thank you Swiss. I'm flying again to Athens this summer, I'm going with Swiss :)"
Pros: "Good service... good food....on time. I will fly Swiss again."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants. Clean planes."
Cons: "Seat pitch too small-no room. Food was not good. Outdated entertainment movies"
Pros: "Great flying with Swiss!"
Cons: "seats were a bit tight! otherwise, great!"
Pros: "Same as above, we were really pleased with the service and the food, and the crew was great!"
Cons: "Seats a little close together but not terrible."
Pros: "My wife got travel sickness and the crew was very very nice to help her out by offering her a place to lie down and other offerings"
Cons: "The crew at the check-in was rude, confused, and ignorant, and flight attendants were forgetful and ignorant."
Pros: "The best in flight service. I've taken Swiss air multiple times from Zurich to LA and I will never take another airline. The food is great, plenty of snacks and drinks. Great entertainment and the cabin crew treats you very well."
Pros: "Decent food (great chocolate), polite attendants and updated aircraft"
Cons: "Contrary to most experiences in Switzerland, the Swiss Air boarding process is a damn mess! Most airlines board by rows or boarding groups, but Swiss Air does none of that. As soon as first class is boarded, they open boarding to all seats, so it's like cattle boarding a train. With Swiss Air, don't wait to get in line - do it early to ensure you get carry-on storage near your seat."
Pros: "So far so good"
Cons: "So good"
Pros: "Can't think of anything we didn't like. All the attendants were very nice, always smiling and helpful. It was great, will fly with Swiss again for sure."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "Excellent inflight experience with the entertainment; snacks were plenty, crew was very efficient."
Cons: "Notithing to dislike comes to mind."
Pros: "I was offered several snacks throughout the flight, which helped to pass the time and gave me the opportunity to drink water, which helps a lot."
Cons: "Seats were very tight in the cabin. I don't know of an airline that does not jam seats into coach, so this is expected."
Pros: "Good people."
Cons: "Bad food."
Pros: "Entertainment, movies music were good selections. We enjoyed them. Although the headphones jack socket for my wife;s seat didn't work properly. They should maintain their equipment better."
Cons: "In Zurich if you travel to US or Canada, they have just before the gates some security check that ONLY verifies the passport. It seemed weird to me. Why are they not excluding transferring passengers from this nightmare. Because it is a nightmare. Long and disorganized lines where travelers, that have diverse leaving times, are trying to enter 4 check points that work slow and nobody manages all that mess. On the plane, absolute unnecessarily (they had extra unoccupied seats) they took one of our carry-on-s with the check in luggage. The seats are extremely tight and offer a very small place for the economy class. Nothing special about the food."
Pros: "All the meal and snacks were excellent! The crew was friendly."
Cons: "It was too warm during flight, not enough air flow. The lights are too bright and spread light to passengers during "sleep" time. The remote controls for the TV's need to be cleaned. Passengers need to be reminded to not open windows during "sleep" times"
Pros: "Great food and drink service."
Cons: "Entertainment system is outdated relative to other airlines. A bit disappointing."
Pros: "I liked the fact that I got to Los Angeles safely"
Cons: "The bathrooms were tiny, seemed to be in a bad shape and one of them was straight disgusting. The cabin was crowded and there was not much room to stretch. There seemed to be something wrong with the main dish (special order) and I started to feel ill soon after eating from it. It took a few days to get better. The headset didn't work for most of the trip, even after several attempts by the flight attendant to re-set it."
Pros: "Kind flight attendants who were attentive and friendly"
Cons: "Seats are hard and very small. No chargers and having the remote control cut into the armrest was uncomfortable and awkward. I kept accidentally hitting the stewardess button with my elbow when I would try to use said armrest."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional: friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seat was really small and I am 5.1ft. The screen was bigger than other flight companies but when the passenger in front of me put down the seat I wasn't able to watch the video comfortably. The entertainment sistem was a little bit old."
Pros: "The seats were really comfortable! The staff was amazing. They were very friendly and kind. The seats reclined really nicely."
Cons: "I would have liked more movie choices but it wasn't too bad of a selection."
Cons: "Old entertainment system didn't work"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was decent"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable. Will fly a different airline next time."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "some food was frozen when served (salad and cheese). Coffee wasn't that great either."
Pros: "Crew was nice, seats were comfortable"
Cons: "I enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Food had only beef options"
Cons: "- Boarding took too much time because the airline called all passengers to board, instead of asking to board by their seat zone. - The space between seat is too narrow so I couldn't stretch my legs. - The seats are very old and little bit dirty - The seats were not properly cleaned."
Cons: "Leg room Food choices"
Cons: "Horrible service I will never go with this airline The attendants never came to us when we needed them this is my second time The attendants don’t care and don’t even love k at you"
Cons: "I nearly missed my connecting flight because of how poorly organized Ataturk airport is. Disembarking was extremely time consuming; there were few signs instructing connecting passengers where to go; and the employees of the airport were extremely unhelpful and gave conflicting information. I made my flight with only minutes to spare after going through two security and passport checkpoints and sprinting an entire wing of the airport. I will never fly through Ataturk (or anywhere in Turkey) again."
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Every thing was nice"
Cons: "Staff seemed to not care about passengers. Could partially be a language/cultural barrier, but i have consistently noticed staff just want to push through their tasks. Actual service is not a priority it seems. Another issue, often times they run out of food."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the seats are comfortable"
Cons: "The kosher food was bad"
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent. Very attentive, even in coach. Amenities were good. The food was adequate to good."
Cons: "The seats were a bit hard. Still, the legroom wasn't any worse than a domestic flight."
Pros: "The entertainment, the food, the free wine."
Cons: "The small space of the economy seating area. It was very crowded and the staff wasn’t too keen on taking plates from passengers after they’ve eaten so often we were stuck with our trays and couldn’t get up or move. Boarding was a pain from Istanbul. The security check was chaotic and I wish they had a more sanitary way of checking everyone’s bags instead of using the same pair of gloves to search every passenger’s bag and do a body check."
Pros: "My kids, wife and I loved flying to Turkish Airlines. Always on time, tasty and nutritious food, wonderful staff who help you with smile on their faces. Sure, we'll fly Turkish Airlines from now on."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Pros: "The food was SUPER DELICIOUS! The seats were comfortable, the movie selection is great, and the staff's care and commitment to customer happiness is unmatched!"
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms. Very long lines to go to the bathroom."
Cons: "No, disappointments:)"
Pros: "Food was fine"
Cons: "delay time and Istanbul airport"
Pros: "The best airline to Europe! Period! Boing in the new 777 and has very comfortable seats with plenty of room for your feet even in economy class. Huge number of movies and TV shows. The food is excellent. Only missing part is to have some candies or chocolates for the 13 hour trip for San Francisco to Istanbul. You can not beat their price. Crew is very friendly and helpful at the same time. Slippers and socks they give you in economy class + cotton blanket of course make you feel you are 1st class traveler. What else? You name it and it is there. Will fly again with Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Fantastic onboard entertainment. Lots of current movies and tv shows to watch. Music was available, too. Even a camera under the plane to see what you’re flying over...usually clouds. USB charging, big screens in the headrests, games, remote control with keyboard and game controller, network cable for laptops without Wi-Fi even. The had pillows and blankets on every seat when we arrived and handed out hot towels before the first meal. They also provided a kit with eye mask, toothbrush, cologne, and slippers. Far better than we expected."
Cons: "We were subjected to at least five security checks after our transfer in Istanbul. At the gate they checked our passports and boarding passes five times before boarding, every carry on bag was searched and every person was patted down. We even watched while one man held up his baby for a guard to pat the baby down! This was all after the security we’d received to get to our gate. So, if you left the gate to use the bathroom, you had to go through all the checks again."
Pros: "Food is great. Flight attendants were very helpful. Entertainment options are great. Comfy seats. Short flight."
Cons: "Istanbul airport is crowded. Looking forward to the new airport."
Pros: "Everything was perfect. I enjoyed my flight specially delicious food. I will definitely fly again by Turkish Airlines. I also recommend to other travelers."
Cons: "The flight arrived a little late. It was not on time."
Pros: "Great food, good selection of movies."
Cons: "A 12-hour flight maybe necessary for a visit but it still is uncomfortable."
Cons: "Short transit time. Very risky. Small seats."
Pros: "service was excellent!"
Cons: "food wasn't enough or good"
Pros: "Good food and courteous service."
Cons: "I was crowded in amongst a family who decided to camp in my row of 3 seats. (Literally, on the floor.) I could not move because I needed the bulkhead and aisle seat to stretch my legs. I am a Diabetic and needed it for circulation. I did not say anything but, the stewardess should have made one of the people go back to their seat as he was wedged near the window and sitting on the floor. It made my 13.25 hours trip very uncomfortable. They had a child with them so, I didn't wish to complain while on board."
Pros: "entertainment selection"
Cons: "entertainment console was a bit clunky and old flight left 2 hrs later than scheduled."
Pros: "Food is ok"
Cons: "When you call for steward/stewardess took so long before they come"
Pros: "Excellent price, customer service & we enjoyed it. Thank you."
Pros: "This was my first flight with Turskis Airlines and my best experience with flying to Europe. The food was excellent; we had two hot delicious meals (best airplane food I ever had). The crew was the best - professional yet friendly. TA airfares are cheaper than other airlines so I could spend one day in Istanbul. That alone is worth it!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and I was rebooked 24hrs later! Not okay!"
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: "The in-flight entertainment was above average. The in-flight crew was fine, although not particularly gracious or kind."
Cons: "The on-ground customer service in Istanbul was the worst experience I have ever had with humans in my whole life. They were unhelpful, rude, blatantly ignored people, dismissive, walked away from customers when they didn't want to deal with them, did not do anything to keep order when people were cutting in line after people were waiting for 4+ hours. I will avoid flying Turkish Airlines as best I can."
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable environment. The really take care of you"
Cons: "Boarding Process could be a little streamlined. Guess we are used to the regulated process"
Cons: "First the flight was delayed 2 hours and then we sat on the plane for 7 hours before take-off, while the crew took care of several issues. Ridiculous. Should have made us wait at the airport gate so we could have eaten proper food and had wifi."
Cons: "Too many seats. Very uncomfortable on a long trip."
Cons: "Everything from good to entertainment"
Pros: "Food and the service"
Cons: "Ground crew, misleading information"
Pros: "Great service. On time. Friendly personnel."
Pros: "Friendly, polite and very helpful staff. Clean aircraft.on time best customer service."
Cons: "Nothing negative. Keep up good work!"
Pros: "Good food and movie selection. Nice pillows and comfort kit."
Cons: "Excellent customer service"
Cons: "Did not update food preferences after the flight was changed due to cancellation by Turkish airlines"
Pros: "Good movies to watch and food was also pretty good"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Overall not a good experience"
Cons: "The plane was very cold"
Confort is incredibly bad and crew is unfriendly and unresponsive Food is terrible
The flight was fine. Legroom on this airline is not as good as others, but we were saved by the fact the flight was not full and two of us were able to stretch out over three seats. I found some interesting movies to watch. The TV show selection was rather lacking. Food was ok.
There was no food. I’m not sure if that is due to Covid restrictions or just cutting corners, but I was disappointed.
Austrian changed the times on the connections resulting in longer layovers. Old airplane not friendly service
Pros: "Nice service easy flight"
Cons: "Hot, ridiculously warm on the plane"
Pros: "Seat was very comfortable. Crew was great."
Pros: "Everything was excellent . I was very happy with this flight.Thank you so much."

Cons: "Seating is extremely cramped"
Pros: "The cleanest of the airport and the airplane"
Cons: "The 15 hours layover"
Pros: "Entertainment players"
Cons: "Organization when boarding (a line vs. a mob of people from all different boarding groups) not organized at all. Ended up leaving about 45 minutes late."
Cons: "My wife and I were separated by six rows. Unacceptable!"
Cons: "The Austrian airlines website is absolutely the worst and least user friendly that I've seen for an airline. I tried paying for my bags and it rejected half of the itinerary's bookings for no reason. It took a ton of clicks to get stuff done and I kept getting errors. Very limited movie selection."
Cons: "Terrible food and service"
Pros: "Lost my luggage"
Cons: "Not loosing my suitcase!"
Pros: "On time, best connection for me, earning miles on my program. I booked based on time and cost, didn't even pay attention to what airline."
Cons: "No food, plane felt pretty old and not so clean. Smaller seats than the other flights I had with Lufthansa. Otherwise, it was fine. I had a pretty bad earache on that particular flight, so I liked it less than I might have otherwise. Something didn't feel right, pressure wrong or something."
Cons: "You sold wrong tickets to customers. I booked economy tickets but I got Econony lite ticket. Had to pay extra charges. You shouldn’t make money to sell lower class tickets as regular."
Cons: "There was a mix up about my reservation/ticket. Was stuck at the ticket desk for 45 min"
Pros: "Check in at gate easy and boarding on time. Equipment seemed modern and in good condition. No food or entertainment on short flight to rate."
Pros: "I never try Austrian airlines because this trip was my first trip with them and I'll say that it's one of the best trips I ever had the airport at Vienna it's very small and easy to go anywhere you want and it's super clean and the stuff at the airport are very helpful and they all speak English and I was able to get a hotel room with walking destination from the airport and it was a very good experience overall I'll definitely recommend to anyone and I'll definitely keep them on my top list"
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: "Crew was nice enough, entertainment was ok. Food was ok. The plane was old and a little dirty."
Cons: "Boarding was incredibly chaotic, seats were old and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Polite crew. The food was much better that on any airline these days. The boarding process was organized fine."
Cons: "As on any airline these days the leg space in economy class is very limited. The movie selection was OK but not great."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, flight was on time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight of 12h 20min?! I was offered the appetizer (pretzel or biscuit - both of 14gr of product inside). This is unacceptable - overseas flights have to have some snacks No eye mask or ear plugs, nor socks for economy class Outdated entertainment"
Cons: "We landed so close to our boarding time, by the time i got through everything, i was notified that i had to go to gate 11 for a special security check...it was stressful since my flight was boarding...i found it really frustrating . Ultimately the plane waited and it worked out, but the process was long and VERY stressful."
Pros: "Very friendly service efficient and helpful ready to satisfy unwarranted requests"
Cons: "The check in was very efficient and fast , access to the cabin is well managed Service attendants are smiling always and like to share a bit of fun with the travelers ."
Cons: "arogant staff, flight canceled, great difficulties to claim my money back"
Cons: "I tried to reschedule due to a death in the family and due to the "small print" this was not possible. Then when I did travel, it turned out I didn't have the right for a piece luggage (again "small print"). I paid for the extra piece and I was double-charged (same amount withdrawn twice). Now I have opened a complained with Austrian and they haven't responded so far."
Cons: "Food is appauling!"
Cons: "Firstly . The crew were rude ! They did not even response when were calling them from the seat . The only way to talk to them is to find them at the end of the plane ( where they been chating with each other ) Secondly . The amount of snacks was limited where’s in Turkish airlines it’s unlimited and you can choose different sandwiches whereas in Austrian airilines can offer biscuits and Cookies ;( Thirdly . We are living in 21 century and most transatlantic airlines have WiFi ! Where’s Austrian did not have it!"
Cons: "I sat in the last corner seat on the plane... very cramped as there’s no leg room, no window & was overbooked."
Pros: "Ground crew was very kind"
Cons: "My ordered vegetarian meal was missing on the way back :("
Pros: "The rep was able to get me on Air France instead."
Cons: "This flight switch added a layover and 8 hrs to my journey home. Not to mention I was in a middle seat on the. 11 hr leg when I had originally booked a window seat."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but due to efforts of the pilot we were on time!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable Bathrooms clean"
Cons: "Crew wasn't very helpful and didn't ensure my stroller was delivered at the aircraft exit Had trouble closing my suitcase into the overhead compartment and called for assistance, to which i got reprimanded for opening it in the first place Requested coffee because i couldn't get it myself, being with a sleeping toddler, to which i got a horrible answer: the flight attendant told me i had to get it myself in the kitchenette"
Pros: "The plane was clean, fresh looking. Flight attendants were helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Check in at Vienna airport was awful! Chaotic, no help! Kiosk software was horrible. Touch screens didn't work. No back button so, if you made a mistake you had to start from the beginning. Passport reader was not working properly. Machines were slow and delayed in responding. Not enough staff available for assistance. Arrival at LAX was even worse. Plane had to taxi for 30 minutes all about the airport runways. Finally got to a gate -almost on the beach! Then had to bus everyone to main terminal. Slow in getting bags to the passenger pickup. It took us 2 hours post touchdown to get out of the airport! Almost missed the airport shuttle,"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Our seats 35 A & C were comfortable as they were to the back of the plane where it narrows to two seats per side row. Seemed like extra leg room. Crew was very friendly and helpful. Flight was smooth and uneventful. Good movie choices. Bathroom was clean and nearby. Plane seemed newer Boeing model. The City Airport Transport (CAT) train from the Vienna airport to city center was fantastic. We were able to check our luggage and get boarding passes where we boarded the CAT at the metro station and did not have to wait in line at the airport...wonderful system!"
Cons: "At the gate there was a line formed for a second passport check but it was not clear to passengers that they needed to go through this line. A significant number of us had SSSS on our boarding passes which required us to go through a second, more thorough, TSA security procedure. We had to remove shoes, take electronics including phones from cases, have purse contents gone through by personnel, be screened for residue, etc. Due to this process and the fact that we were not advised to stand in the line, a number of passengers went through the second security check at the last minute which caused our takeoff to be delayed. The pilot made up the time during the flight. I ordered low sodium meal which ended up to be the same food at both meals which was a disappointment - pasta with tomato, eggplant sauce."
Pros: "Good service, nice staff (better than US carriers easily)"
Cons: "2.5 hours to receive baggage - this might be on LAX"
Cons: "We flew from TLV to Skopje via Vienna. None of the flight were on time and there was zero communication about the flight status. We arrived to the gate to start the boarding and they just told us wait here for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes we were asked to wait another 20 minutes. Only when we missed the take off time by 10 minutes they bothered to update us and inform us that the flight is being delayed in 2 hours."
Pros: "Good food, lots of movies, flight attendants friendly"
Cons: "We paid to pre-book our seats and when we got on the plane they had been given away. We heard several different reasons, none of which made is feel better about the two middle seats we were told we had no choice but to take, while people who had NOT prepaid sat in our aisle seat. It was offensive to be forced to pay to select our seats in advance on a major international airline in the first place, and then to not have those honored just made it worse."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "There was nothing in specific that I didn't like!"
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze, although the flight was not full. Food was good, but as I dozed off during courses, they decided I was finished and took all my food and didn't offer anything when I awoke shortly after. (this will go in the 'didn't like' section as well. Bed was comfortable and comfy blanket and pillow"
Cons: "Crew was not friendly at all. Amenities kit was burlap sac with nothing worth keeping or using -- even the eye covers. Business class bathrooms had nothing to offer in the areas of hand/face creams. All there was were hand wipes and air freshener. (OMG! SERIOUSLY!?); a big difference from their partners (i.e. Swiss and Lufthansa). Crew was not present -- not only were they very unfriendly they were no where to be found. TV/video didn't work properly -- kept fast forwarding or changing channels on its own. The crew of course, was not concerned."
Cons: "As I was flying from London Heathrow back to Vienna, I had a carry-on that was allowed on my flight with Austrian from Vienna to London. My carry-on weighed 8 kg, like is required by the rules. While boarding my flight, the woman at the counter told me my bag had to be checked because there were too many carry-ons on the flight. I asked her that I keep my bag because I had medication in there, and she didn't listen to me at all. She just kept repeating that i have to check my bag, and then took my bag from me and gave it to the baggage crew there. I didn't want to make a huge scene because the flight is only 2 hours and I hoped i Could deal without my medication during that time, but I found it incredibly, incredibly rude and awful to not listen to a passenger."
Pros: "Staff was pleasant and competent"
Cons: "Food was way too salty. That needs to be addressed by airlines. Not a healthy or palatable experience."
