Too crowded. Stale almonds. Boarding very slow. Crew was friendly and helpful. Flight was smooth and uneventful.

Not much to expect from Alitalia these days. They should not be part of the Skyteam. They are way below the standard. Service is very poor and you do not feel welcome on board. Space is smaller, only water, no garbage college in between or before landing, dirty bathrooms and entertainment is so so.

Great service during the pandemic.

Our favorite flights. Straight shots, with as much comfort as one would expect.

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "The cookies and snacks are terrible. A single sandwich would have been better and not cost that much more t For the airline"
Cons: "There is always just too much talking and announcements on the flights now."
Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "Paid $28 for internet and it didn’t work"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled - we were moved to an Alaska Air flight. That is why all of the NAs. What was good is that the moved us to another flight in a timely manner. Also, the gate attendant kept everyone informed of what was happening."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. The plane was very quiet (except for noisy crying babies)."
Cons: "Unless you can afford the higher priced "comfort class" or first class seats, the seating is very, very cramped on Delta's 757s. It's a good thing the flight was only 5+ hours (but that's not long enough to get any decent amount of sleep on this flight scheduled as a redeye)."
Cons: "Always need more room"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Ran over 2 hours late with no explanation"
Cons: "The intercom was turned up too loud."
Pros: "The ceew"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding and 6 hour delay from expected departure time."
Pros: "Every one but the gate agent at Detroit going to Seattle at 7:40 loading time on 4-11-19. She was mean and curt and would not get my seat corrected I had to sprint for at least a mile to even make it. We landed the same time they were boarding"
Cons: "The attendants on the Detroit to Seattle flight suggested I go talk to the gate agent to get my seat corrected. They said the flight was not full. So I did. To be greeted again by the mean agent you told me to take my rear and get it on the plane that the attendants didn’t know anything"
Pros: "Crew stepped up when we were delayed. In Flight entertainment was nice to help pass the time."
Cons: "More honesty from the pilots/airline. Got on the plane, taxied to take off, then informed that we had to go back to the gate. At the gate, they wouldn't let anyone off and then we were told that there was a minor maintenance issue that would take 15 minutes to fix. It took 4 hours. Poor job by Delta"
Pros: "The flight was not cancelled, crew was friendly, we arrived at our destination."
Cons: "Flight delayed two hours and absolutely no info provided to customers about what was going on and if/when flight would depart."
Pros: "Great landing in a real mess of a storm. We were pitching and yawing due to high gusts of winds but the crew brought it down perfectly. The Captain explained the weather situation before we left Atlanta so I was prepared for a bad weather flight and landing."
Cons: "The weather."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Even vegetarian Hindu food was ordered over the phone. We're presented non veg food. When asked about the non veg food we were told that we dint order. Lie right away. Alitalia members showed worst and discrimination based behavior. Very rude. Won't travel on Alitalia in future"
Pros: "Crew did not serve breakfast because flight arrived earlier How about better communication with pilot?"
Pros: "The crew was polite but not overly friendly or welcoming."
Cons: "Boarding was orderly but it was hard to hear the announcements of the zones. I flew economy and it was like flying in a frozen sardine can. There was absolutely NO leg room. At 5 ft, 2 " if I found it difficult, I cannot even imagine how a taller person felt. I wore a coat, sweater, and scart , and warm socks, and I was still freezing the entire trip. It took me 20 minutes to thaw out after arriving. It was quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "Boarding from back to front. Making early boarders wait to the side when they tried to embark too soon."
Cons: "All the people standing in line prior to boarding."
Pros: "The staff were spot on excellent"
Pros: "Friendly service. Frequent snacks which is nice on a 10-hour flight."
Cons: "Cramped conditions"
Cons: "Ran out of fuel and had to divert to Birmingham. Disappointed. Turned into a 3-4 h delay. When we got to ATL our gate was occupied. All in all very poor service. Delta is better than this."
Cons: "I began asking for my wheelchair escort the minute I got off the plane. I was assured in Houston they would be there when I got to Detroit. They were not. The request was clearly spelled out on my boarding pass along with my personal oxygen equipment information. I kept asking different staff and they would call for me then say somebody would be there. I waited for an entire hour and only when I started to cry did somebody do something. It was terribly stressful."
Cons: "Retrofitted entertainment system under the seats made it very uncomfortable. It was hard to even stretch your legs."
Cons: "All went well"
Pros: "Delta flew their way back into my heart this time around"

Cons: "Seats rather crowded in coach, small plane so it was also a bit noisy"
Cons: "1 hour flight delay"
Pros: "I liked watching movies."
Cons: "Goog"
Cons: "Delay over one hour."
Pros: "We stood on the ground due to weather, which had nothing to do with the airline itself. Keeping this from jading my point of view, the airline stood within the standard of what is expected of a good trip. Food was good, and the choice of movies, shows, and games helped the time pass. Staff was friendly, and checked bags were ready rather quickly."
Cons: "The number of updates telling us we are going nowhere, was a bit excessive."
Pros: "No headphones available for flight"
Pros: "Crew was excellent and the timing of the flight was very good."
Cons: "Nothing to do with personnel but my seat was changed from when I booked. I wound up in the last row at the very back versus what I had booked. I think they changed the type of plane."
Pros: "movie choices are great"
Cons: "the people sitting behind me kept talking about dying from the aircraft, it makes me uncomfortable."
Pros: "Entertainment ( movies) were nice."
Cons: "9 hour flight and no food(meal) until 1 hour before we land. The worst food I've had on a international flight."
Pros: "The agent on my departure flight at the ATL airport was amazing, boarding was quick, the flight attendants were great! I had an overall great experience."
Cons: "Turbulence was pretty bad both flights."
Pros: "Reminds of when air travel was a special event. The Salt Lake based crew was awesome. Cost to upgrade to 1st definitely worth it."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Customer service very courteous and friendly."
Cons: "For the second time in one day, my seat would not recline!!! Very uncomfortable for an even longer flight than the first one!!"
Pros: "On time Clean airplane Smooth ride Friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "They did give us the Dane snacks the first class passengers got."
Cons: "Zero additional leg room in this supposed comfort seat. The seat was very narrow and there was absolutely no additional leg room on the flight. I'm tall, so that's what I pay for when I book these flights and none was provided."
Pros: "Too short For my experience is not hectic"
Cons: "Entertainment crew food"
Cons: "They were making luggage issues with all passengers"
Pros: "Over all good service."
Cons: "Passenger seats. Very uncomfortable need more legs room and more padding."
Cons: "The aircraft arrived late in Istanbul for the connecting flight to Egypt causing us to miss out flight which made us wait 5+ hours in the airport which was a huge inconvenience."
Pros: "Great hospitality, food was as ordered, plenty of drinks, energetic staff"
Cons: "Gate experience at IST was sub par"
Cons: "The serbice qnd food was terrible"
Cons: "Cabin temperature was very cold"
Pros: "Charged me >$700 for missing a flight. This never happened earlier. Customer service girls are robotic: they just repeat the same lines. THY wasn't like this, something major has changed."
Cons: "Zero effort to reaccommodate."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good service."
Cons: "To be expected, but no vegan options for food"
Pros: "Overall experience was good."
Cons: "In comfort leg space can improve. Entrainment: in TV Series are random, they should be season wise placed so you cannot see the series in a link."
Pros: "Seat space continued to be better than BA. Nice surprise to get an evening meal on the last leg to Rome. I actually was able to sleep a bit on this smaller airplane as well. Crew went out of its way to help people board and load bags overhead. They seemed very attentive, and tried to provide extra drink options even."
Cons: "Boarding process at IST was a challenge. We left from a remote gate, and the agent didn't seem interested in the boarding process. I heard no announcements, maybe because it didn't matter as everyone was crowding the door 15 minutes before boarding began. The agent seemed perturbed, but I've seen it on almost every Italian bound flight. No one wants to wait. It is actually a bit amusing to watch the struggle between boarding policies and a group of people who seem determined to ignore them. The buses were also pretty well packed. More so in Rome than IST. Not much organization in loading at either place. After all the passport control they left us to walk outside to wait for the bus. Maybe you can tell I'm not a fan of remote gates."
Pros: "The amount of food and drinks we got was perfect, the movies, shows and other entertainment options were plenty and they had a great selection, and the sleep kit (slippers, socks, lip balm, etc) was very much appreciated and helpful. The staff were nice and professional."
Pros: "Everything was great, thank you for your service."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Connecting both flights would be good"
Pros: "Entertainment was OK boarding was a good comfortable sitting."
Cons: "I did not have an option to order kosher meal when I did my online check-in so I called customer service and the lady on the line barely spoke English and even though I warder kosher meal and verified it with her when I go to the plane the crew told me they don't have a kosher meal for me. The crew was unwilling to help me find something else to eat and they were very rude. I am very disappointed of their customer service standards. I will not use Turkish Airlines again."
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent meals, comfortable seating"
Cons: "Istanbul airport- needs major refurbishment"
Pros: "Timely departure and arrival. Excellent landing. Helpful crew."
Pros: "Food was too complicated and saucy. Simple dishes preferred. My fork had chunks of fried on food (was dirty) snd unusable. Interior of plane was tired."
Cons: "LOts of water available. I like the menu being given at beginning of flight as one could plan the hours."
Pros: "Service, Media"
Cons: "Seat room, very tight."

Cons: "Seats can be a bit better"
Pros: "Lots of in flight entertainment options. Good meals. Very nice and helpful attendants."

Cons: "Slippers and blankets were not provided to all passengers. Toilets got unacceptable by the end of the flight."
Pros: "food, entertainment"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Cons: "This 13 hours and 5 minutes flight was extremely hot. Regardless of how many times we've asked the flight attendants to make it cooler for us, nothing changed. By the time, we get off my shirt was soaking wet. Imagine flying for so long under these conditions. What an horrible customer service!"
Pros: "Everyone in the crew was friendly and helpful. The flight was long, but seemed shorter because the crew was attentive."
Cons: "My flight was delayed."
Pros: "Nothing.... except the movies"
Cons: "Everything....food and service. The airlines also Lost our bags...and till today cannot trace or find it. Went on a cruise with 2 pairs of clothes. How does an airline give a bag tag to a passenger without putting it in the bag???? 12 days and no bags.... terrible call center service too no help at all."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and helpful. The plane left on schedule and connected me to my next leg with no problem"
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "No bed to sleep in"
Pros: "Best value on the market. Excellent service. Great food and beverages. Very good service. Excellent Longe in Istanbul makes Most Club Longe look like a dump."

Pros: "It is just superb"
Pros: "Airplane and entertainment were nice."
Cons: "Flight left an hour late so we missed our connection."
Pros: "Plane was nice. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "The plane was blazing hot. The in flight entertainment system was down for half the flight."
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: "Comfortable, tasty"
Cons: "The flight was delayed in 40 mins Our entertainment system didn't work"
Pros: "On time boarding but stayed 20 minutes over time to take off."
Cons: "My flight dates were changed by the airline which made me change many of my plans. My son's seat was broken and Tv didn't work (13 hour flight). Overall uncomfortable seats with very minimum seat recline option. Poor food. Staff was little "cold" and not attentive."
Cons: "Several TVs were not working. While some were repaired the TV for my viewing did not work. Though it was set right it failed raw weal times."
Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Cons: "Was late taking off"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Best airline food I have ever had. Most comfortable long flight as well."
Pros: "The seat was good"
Cons: "The crew was not at all good, I had to call them so many times for one thing, not at all managed well"
Pros: "The crew was amazing! The entertainment was awesome and got me through the 12 hour plane ride just fine. Best airline I've been on this far."
Cons: "I come from a poor background and it's sad to see that in order to have first class it'll cost you more than what I make in almost 5-6 months just to have a little more comfort... I'm not a big fan of the comfort side of the plane. You only go back so far and if you have a middle seat like I did you have to try in sleep in an upright position practically looking forward. Extremely difficult and really uncomfortable. If it wasn't for the Cafine drinks and entertainment I would of probably gone crazy. Metaphorically speaking."
Pros: "We got put up in a hotel near the airport, but after waiting for 4 hours at the gate, then 4 hours to get our bags again and find new flights. The crew were still kind, though clearly stressed."
Cons: "The crew had no idea how to handle all the displaced people on our flights. We were standing in line and double checking that we were being taken care of until 2:30 AM for a flight that was supposed to have left at 6 PM."
Pros: "Had no idea the Turks ran such a top program that to me was superbly close to my experiences with Emirates."
Cons: "The crew was very rude and was not helpful at all."
Pros: "Very helpful crew. Quick boarding process."
Cons: "Not much leg room, or space in seats."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "There seemed to be no leg room. The seat was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight barely had a bump and was on time. Service was terrific and, for a regular economy seat, I didn't feel too squished. The entire experience was highly positive."
Pros: "The crew was the best"
Pros: "Convenient seats in A-380"
Cons: "Drinks were good, but food was bad"
Pros: "Seats had lots of space and entertainment systems had large, clear screens."
Cons: "Person sitting next to me was watching video on their phone without headphones. Also reeked of cigarettes. Had to move my seat."
Cons: "I travelled economy and found the seats not very enabling for big and tall folks as myself ! Other than that I highly recommend flying Lufthansa"
Cons: "Didn't make the flight"
Pros: "Check in was easy, flight was smooth, had good seats with legroom. Liked receiving updates on phone."
Pros: "The crew, both in SFO and on board where e excellent. We were well taken care of, in both area's. The service on the plane were top notch, anticipating our every need. The food was yummy and the entertainment great!"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and professional. We arrived early"
Cons: "Food was disappointing as was the wine. I am not a large person but I found the business class “bed” pretty narrow and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything that happened during the flight was fine. The service, the flight itself, and the landing – which was excellent."
Cons: "On the ground, neither the staff nor the signage made it clear exactly where to check in. I was sent to the Lufthansa counter, which didn’t open until 11:30, when I should have gone to the United counter. An hour of my time was wasted, which almost resulted in my missing the one-hour before take-off check-in deadline. The only reason I didn’t miss the deadline was because the flight was late taking off."
Pros: "Great crew, great flight, food and drinks was awesome"
Cons: "I don't like the fact that I can't choose my seat from earlier because I a big girl and I like to set in the emergency exist seats so I'm not crush up in the middle seat not comfortable and long flight like that lots of pain at the end of the flight"
Pros: "Excellent service. They really brought around the drinks and food and seemed to be there when you were looking for more."
Pros: "I liked the seats, the space for our legs and the crew members"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "This was an emergency trip to see my mother who was in the hospital. The flight was delayed so I had no option but to board the next day since I wouldn't be able to make it to the connecting flight in Frankfurt. They couldn't give me another connecting flight since it was all full. Because I booked my ticket only hours before my flight, they said it might not be possible to fulfil my meal request since there's a 24 hours cut off. However, now I had to cone back to the airport and take the next days flight which gave the airline more than 24 hours from my original meal request. I still did not get the meal I requested, the crew didn't know about it and didn't have any to spare. This was my first time flying Lufthansa, I probably won't try it again."
Cons: "Delayed in Munich an hour late"
Cons: "I haven’t received my luggage and I have been in Mumbai for almost 3 days!!! I have to buy new clothes and plenty of toiletries, I have only had 1 phone call from the airline to tell me my bags never left SFO!!! Wtf!"
Cons: "Flight to Fresno was delayed three times. Flight time was 6:21 and now delayed until 10:21"
Pros: "The food was good."

Pros: "All of it"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great food and service. Business class lie flat seats are good for the sleep."
Pros: "They kept feeding us! We were not expecting 2 meals 2 snacks and unlimited drinks in economy. We were very impressed and will decently book international with them again."
Pros: "Gave us snacks when flight was delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed Entertainment app didn't work"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and I liked that they always kept us hydrated with drinks. Before I even left on the trip I called the airlines several time with so many questions and the staff that I talked to each time were so friendly and helpful with all the questions that I had."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like is that the boarding process was different than what I was used to. I usually board by zones and this time it was more of a everyone got up at the same time and everyone rushed to the front of the lines and some people would push me out of the way to get in front. ( even though we all had assigned seating) Second thing was that I had asked for a wheelchair for my mom and I had seen one waiting outside and was about to walk up to it but another person was limping up to it and put her stuff down on it so I didn't know if it was for my mom or her. I didn't have the heart to go up and make her move if the wheelchair was for my mom so we ended up walking the whole way to customs. I felt bad for my mom afterwards because her knees ended up hurting by the time we got to customs. I would suggest holding up signs of individual names for who the wheelchair is for. Other than that everything was great"
Pros: "The plane is very nice. One of the best plane configurations. Crew is excellent."
Cons: "Seats can be more comfortable"
Cons: "Was delayed in a connection and missed flight. No offer or help provided to get me and children on another flight without charging me ~$9000 for another flight. Paid out of pocket for another airline. Cannot believe the extortion and lack of service provided!"
Pros: "The airplane was clean. Lots of storage space."
Cons: "The entertainment screens in our row of seats were not working. The crew did find seats we could move to if we wanted to watch movies. Made two phone calls to the airline prior to my scheduled trip to attempt a seat upgrade but they told me I would have to do this at the airport where of course no upgrades were available"
Cons: "I called the airline and paid for a specific ticket so I could have an aisle seat. They confirmed it was an aisle but Inhad 30F which is a window seat! I'll be calling Lufthansa for a refund. p"
Pros: "I really enjoyed my flight with Lufthansa. My gluten free meals were very good and the service was excellent!"
Cons: "It would be nice to be able to reserve seats ahead of time without charge"
Pros: "I have ordered the salmon fish dinne and the fish was totally overlooked, dry and tough. I could not swallow the fish and ate the tiny bread roll only. The second was breakfast wigh tasteless scrambled egg and mushroom and spinach. Both serving sizes were really small with just one side dish of fruits. I was hungry the whole 10 hours flight."
Cons: "Changed the chef or the vendors who supplied the meals."
Pros: "Boarding was organized, flight was not profoundly oversold."
Cons: "Food was not appetizing."
Pros: "Flight Attendants were Excellent. Friendly, attentive, and caring! Thank You Very Much."
Cons: "Lufthansa changed our seats, splitting up my wife and I, after confirming they were together. Thank you to the Flight Attendant who reseated us together but "you know what" to the person that screwed up the seats in the first place. Also the on-line check in process was extremely poor, maybe "bad" is a better word."
Cons: "Lufthansa does not honor frequent flyer statuses of any of their alliance partners in regards to seat upgrades. Being 6'4", the ability to upgrade to economy plus/premium is important on long-haul flights. Everything else about Lufthansa is excellent, but I will not book with Lufthansa for long flights anymore because of this. I'll stick with United from now on."
Pros: "Service was good, the airplane was good also"
Cons: "This time we experienced a strong turbulence. It would be more helpful if the crew gave updates about the situation more often, was really scary. Also, the food was not good at all...."
Cons: "The flight never took off. We had to wait 6 hours in line, and they still couldn't rebook many of us. When I was finally rebooked on a Swiss Air flight, the flight was invalid, Swiss didn't accept it. I was send to various different lines, and they didn't even understand what my problem was. Finally after spending 2 whole days at the San Francisco airport, I could take off with a 30 hour delay. The Swiss Air flight was wonderful."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process and tarmac delays consumed the already inadequate prospective layover in Chicago."
Pros: "- crew was nice - overall flight was smooth"
Cons: "- not too unexpectedly, food was small - bring something warm to wear, as at some point temps can be real cold... - wish the boarding process was slightly more logical and have people with seats in the back of the plane go first"
Pros: "Good in-seat entertainment"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats Mediocre Food"
Cons: "1 After long stand the line when i want to check in my Luggage i got shocking news According to checkin counter lady said Flight delay more than 2hours and can be 3hours no body knows how long will be delay, she recommended me to go from San Francisco to san jose airport to get another flight. it's time Enough she said , that time about 1pm, i am lucky that i arrived SF airport 3hours in advance so that i could manage to catch up another flight at the san jose airport, i had to go san jose airport from San Francisco by Taxi and the cost was 170usd because driver says over 50mils far a way i need to pay 50% more, i have a alot import meeting in germany, meeting schedule could be mess i was really shocking, how can i get back Taxi fee usd170??? 2. regards to Crew., one Passenger was collecting his handy carry luggage at Cabinet and he forgot to close Cabinet cover after he collected and it was opened that time one flight crew passing by to final check up before landing but don't see that cabinet door open, so one of passenger talk to her to close the Cabinet door, also handy carry luggage after used the passenger should Keep Under the chair for safety but even passenger keept (put) in her beside empty seat, the Crew don't say anything, it was many people keept in next empty seat area. According to rull must keep it under seat, but crew don't say anything I was very very surprised. it's very Dangerous to everybody people may hurt , i was very Scared and nervous. 3. in the dark room passenger can't see or feels that behind them whether crew come or not (passing by or not) Crew passing by and hit passenger but without saying sorry and just go a way. it's impossible... 4. i was standing at Exit door and look at the outside but same time crew came and said to me not friendly and without smile "Excuse me" and i go a way, i saw she crew want to put something inside at dress room. what i want to say the crew could be more nice and smiley face to passenger or could be nice can be wait 5 seconds but was really the way of tone is Racist, this is what i felt, really bad."
Pros: "At a time when airlines are treating a plane like a flying bus, it's heartening to see Lufthansa's attention to detail for its customers both in terms of ontime departure, arrival and inflight hospitality is second to none."
Pros: "Latest movies few included"
Cons: "The space is so small. For 11plus hours my body could not move. I never had knee problem but they were so sore. My feet and body got extremely tight mid way in the flight. This is my first and last flight in your airlines."
Pros: "Lufthansa always has good service and amenities"
Cons: "I believe it is Lufthansa's responsibility to move my seat if I am seated next to someone who is taking up more than half of my seat for an 11 hour flight"
Cons: "Food was lousy. I have not flown L for sometime, but the food was lousy. I don't remember it being this bad previously. They ran out of rice and chicken...and served me beef... The chicken was on the bone, instead of being off the bone...so harder to eat in small space."
Pros: "Everything was ok"
Cons: "Food was very bad"
Pros: "With a long flight, just not enough seat or leg room for coach."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Plane was clean and the economy-class seats were relatively comfortable. Entertainment was good. Bathroom facilities on lower deck was a good layout, avoided the usual waiting in the aisles to use the restroom. The staff was friendly and the food was pretty good."
Cons: "Was not familiar with many of the drink brands, and the drinks differed from what I typically saw on flights, so would be nice to have some explanation of what they are (maybe it was in the in-flight magazine, but I missed it)."
Cons: "the monitor at my seat did not work and I could not watch any movie. Everything else was fine."
Pros: "My wife and I loved the courtesy onboard, the flight crew's attention was great."
Pros: "first time in the new economy plus, was a pretty good experience-- food comfort, etc."

Flight delayed 5 hours

Wrote in the previous message. Poor. Delayed flight and lost working day. 4.5h together to rebook the flight, get the hotel voucher, get to the hotel and check in. Insanely slow.

Listening covid restrictions and following them is completely nonsense. Avoid touching others? How when plane is full and everybody who pass around touchs me. Keep distance?? How???? Avoid walking in the plane but also wash your hands regularly with soap and water? How? I should avoid walking but at the same time you want me to wash hand regularly? It means i have to walk up and down. What is regularly for you? Every 15mins? Every hour? Every day? It is so stupid what you are telling that my brain stops to work.

Never booked this flight

Great flight Will go again!

Pros: "The best airline ever! Super friendly crew and staff, great customer service and nice planes. Love KLM!"

Cons: "Boarding and disembarkation were slow."

Cons: "Flight delayed, no USB port and no entertainment"
Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"
Pros: "The crew was great! The food was also much better than other airlines. And passing out whole bottles of water was much appreciated."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."
Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Unexpected refueling stop. 2 hr delay Lost connection Reached destination after 18 hr delay"
Pros: "The crew were really helpful with people who had tight connections because of the delayed flight"
Cons: "I wish they had WiFi"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"
Pros: "Lovely crew, very helpful"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "great crew and comfortable flight."
Cons: "sceens in the plane to show map and direction of travel"
Pros: "very attentive crew"
Cons: "Only ham sandwiches on offer! I'm not demanding and would have been happy with cheese."
Cons: "Turn the lights on early making it hard to sleep"
Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."
Pros: "And i got it 2 days later. I had to buy a lot of items which were in my suitcase The returning of the suitcase was awfull. In tge end after many phone calls I received it On the 18/12 evening, 2 days after my landing"
Cons: "Trouble checking in regarding a visa issue?.. no other trouble at the other airports.."
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."
Pros: "Employees were very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were very small"
Pros: "Overall booking and airport was ok. Food was also actually quite good."
Cons: "A comfort of the seats... well its economy class in the end. Entertainment was just dreadful - small screen with visible pixels - I was unable to watch any movie."
Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
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."
Pros: "Easy to board and easy flight."
Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment on board in business. Stale buns - staff unapologetic. Older 737 with uncomfortable seats."
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: "Friendly in-flight personell"
Cons: "Approx. 1 hour delay, which was not the airline's fault (construction on runways)"
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Norhing"
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"
Pros: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."
Pros: "The food service was good and the flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The plane was very uncomfortable. The seats were small, you felt on top of the person next to you, and there was no leg room. I am a pretty small person- I can't image how uncomfortable all of the taller passengers must have been."
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
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: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."
Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."
Pros: "Boarding/unboarding"
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."
Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."

Made a lot of customers check in their bags at the gate. But the cabin space was half empty and all luggage would have fit. Doesn’t make sense.

Pros: "The crew was fine"
Cons: "the checked luggage took over an hour to arrive at the carousel. ZERO communication. Other flights arrived after ours and all their baggage arrived and they all left while we stood. No information. No explanation. Poor"
Pros: "Head flight attendant who gave all the message was not friendly, rushed through her messages like she was not enjoying herself at her job."
Cons: "We left the gate late by 20 minutes only to stand in line with 8 or so other planes waiting to taxi to runway for take off. No explanation was given. However pilot did make up 30 minutes of that time in the air."
Cons: "Overall it was good"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, read the brochure a few times"
Cons: "My seats were preassigned and at 24 hour check In you have to pay to change from economy to economy into a available seat. Make no sense and is rude. Very disappointed in WestJet and I’m anElite member."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Tv"
Pros: "Landed early"
Pros: "The two flights were fine, nice WestJet staff on the ground and in the air. But it will be very inconvenient if I don’t get my clothes, toiletries, and other things I need for my trip."
Cons: "As I said, my suitcase (that I checked through yeti Paris) is missing...."
Pros: "Crew was great . Seats not so much,"
Cons: "Maybe a movie for everyone."
Pros: "The crew was polite, even with the numerous delays. Other than that, the multiple delays (3; 8:30 -> 11:30, 11:30 -> 13:05, 13:05 -> 15:30) rubbed me the wrong way and lessened my experience with West Jet. Kayak was very responsive and reliable on their end."
Cons: "West Jet; the delays which took around 6 hours from my weekend trip."
Cons: "No explanation was given why flight left almost 2 hours late"
Pros: "Westjet is always really friendly."
Pros: "We got stuck in a line up to check in and the line was over 2 hours long and by the time it was our turn, it was too close to departure ( an hour to go) and they wouldn’t let us board so we didn’t get to take our flight at all."
Cons: "1.5 hour late boarding"
Pros: "Pleasant and helpful stewardess. When they found out how stressful our day was with delays and being bumped around they offered us a free drink. Nothing crazy but it was kind of them."
Cons: "When our flights were delayed then changed we were left with no options other then being left with a 19 hr layover in Vancouver and missing the wedding. No apologies or vouchers offered. Air Canada gave $200 for a two hour delay to our friends, we were screwed over and offered nothing. So disappointed. We ended up flying to Vegas and renting a car and driving through the night to be on time. So sad!!"
Pros: "I slept throughout the flight"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and provided great service."
Pros: "Pretzels, Biscott cookies still passed out along w free beverages. Free Entertainment on westjet wifi good too!!"
Pros: "I got to watch "The Post", which took the entire time of the flight. I've wanted to see that movie for months and didn't know how that would happen! Easy flight, good service, friendly crew."
Pros: "That I didn’t have to pay extra to check my bike as luggage. The crew and folks who work for west jet were really really friendly and helpful."
Cons: "That my bike didn’t arrive with me on the plane and that it wasn’t trackable once I arrived so I have no idea it’s status. It might interfere with my ability to complete my bike trip as planned, depending on how long it’s delayed."
Cons: "Missed my flight and i had to buy a new ticket to Saskatoon."
Pros: "Super friendly staff, on-time flight, good entertainment options; very satisfied"
Pros: "Clean planes, positive and a bit funny attendants, easy in boarding. Service that is wonderful."
Cons: "first time taking a westjet flight and we sat on plane for 2 hours before takeoff. disappointing"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the boarding process went smoothly and fast."
Cons: "There was no entertainment for those of us without a compatible mobile/tablet device (I have a Nokia, therefore can't access the app). As always no complimentary meal but that's becoming a norm in most companies - strange how the prices don't really go down though... Seats were hard and unconfortable"
Pros: "The stewards and stewardess were fantastic."
Cons: "Its a little cramped in the seats."
Pros: "Delayed 2hours 30 min"
Cons: "Never flying with wast jets any more"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour and then after landing baggage took a long time to come in. There were a lot of people gathered by the time baggage arrived and caused chaos."
Pros: "I'm trying real hard not to give WestJet a hard time but my seatmate had genuine mobility issues and the walk to the gate AND out to the plane which was unusually far from the terminal...little help here folks!"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "everything"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Flight Late by Over 1 Hour due to deicing which they should have built into their boarding time schedule and two passenger did not show up causing further delays."
Pros: "I had been very sick the night before the flight and was so weak that I needed a wheelchair. The wheelchair helpers i Vancouver were exceptional. They were so kind and genuinely helpful. I was very grateful. Also, your flight attendants seem to really enjoy their jobs. This is not the case on other airlines!"
Cons: "I checked my little carry-on and it was in Calgary but didn't make it to Vancouver. Trust it will be delivered today."
Pros: "The pilot was very informative about when we were leaving and what was causing delays"
Cons: "The flight attendant was pretty rude when I asked for help with finding space to put my carry on bag. The seats were INCREDIBLY uncomfortable, they are too shallow and I felt as though I was going to fall off of the seat"
Pros: "All staff were amazing"
Cons: "The Toronto airport has to be on of the most unorganized and disfunctional airport in the world. I have never seen any airport as poorly designed as this one. I would suggest that any traveller try to avoid this airport because I have never had a good experience at this airport."
Cons: "delayed 2 hours and I missed my connecting flight"
Pros: "The staff are always super friendly on Westjet."
Cons: "The entertainment system is terrible. It does not work on my laptop and they sell out of ipads quickly."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Who decided that seats should be shaped that way? Always gives me a backache."
Pros: "No stops in US."
Cons: "Small seats."
Pros: "All good !"
Cons: "Like to see direct flight to Kelowna"
Pros: "Stewardess let me change seats to a cooler part of the cabin at the back of the plane."
Cons: "The air temperature in the cabin was too hot."
Pros: "smooth, on time"
Cons: "I downloaded the app but was disappointed that the aircraft had no Wifi. There were TV's on each seat back, but several weren't working, including mine. The flight attendant reset the satellite TV's on the whole aircraft, and mine began to work for about 15 mins. Then it stopped again. Very disappointing to be without wifi AND Tv. Esp since I read thru all my reading material on the way to Toronto."
Pros: "I enjoyed the extra space in the exit row."
Cons: "The flight attendants were nice but very nit-picky. The lady next to me had her jacket sitting on her lap. She was told to either put it in the overhead bin or stuff it underneath the seat until after takeoff which seemed absolutely ridiculous to me. I had a backpack under the seat in front of me and was told to push it even further under the seat which also seemed ridiculous. People are tired and not excited to be squished inside a flying tube like sardines, there is no need to pick at them for such tiny insignificant things. As usual, the general public has a poor understanding of common courtesy and basic manners but that's nothing new."
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up"
Cons: "They lost my sleeping bag before my backpacking trip forcing me to buy a new one and would not reimburse me."
