Airline reviews

Cons: "Flight was a little long!"

Pros: "My flight attendant, Grace, was delightful. There were several challenging passengers around me and I observed her handle them with the grace of someone who embodied their name—Grace."
Cons: "No wifi on board. The plane was one of the older ones, but still perfectly nice."

Pros: "The portion for LAX to Doha was fairly comfortable and crew was helpful.. they kept running out of meal options by the time they reached us mid flight .. Doha to Bengaluru portion was less classy— the TV/ remotes etc didn’t work well and overall service not as good .."

Pros: "The customer service was amazing. Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seats were too small to sit comfortably on a long flight I wish Qatar had better seats for long journey and had advanced entertainment system."

Pros: "Qatar Airways is the best first class airline in the world hands down"
Cons: "Nothing they do a great job!!!"

Pros: "Everything was great"

Cons: "Great service."

Pros: "Food and leg room"

Pros: "qatar airways is able to accommodate my low sodium diet"
Cons: "headphone for entertainment did not work"

Pros: "Qatar Airlines treats you very nicely and doesn’t try to charge for little extras. They include the nice extras as part of your travel experience with them. I highly recommend Qatar!"

Cons: "Unorganized too shaky flight made me sick to stomach ,foods are not good service not good"

Pros: "Crew was amazing and aircraft was clean and seats comfortable!"
Cons: "I would like to have more air fresheners during the flight as there are some people who eat special food and it smells so bad in aircraft"

Pros: "Everything!!!"

Pros: "food ok, economy seats not too bad"
Cons: "old entertainment system. Tight connection and first flight was late, so we got bumped off our connection (they literally removed our names from the flight, even though we could've sprinted through the airport and made it if they waived the 20 minute before departure gate closure). It was an exhausting and long wait for the next flight and I did not think it was well-handled. Staying in a hotel is not a great option, because it takes 2 hours to get out of the airport, another 2 hours cushion to get back in time."

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "I had a family emergency and couldn’t go. I wasn’t allowed to switch my flight or change it. Lots of money spent with nothing in return. Unfortunte."

Pros: "The facilitated transfer in Doha within twenty minutes"
Cons: "The repetition of vegetarian food menu"

Pros: "Service basically. For such a long haul flight they did everything they could to make it comfortable."
Cons: "They could have checked the bathrooms more often as trash bins were very full."

Pros: "Excellent overall"
Cons: "LAX boarding was chaotic I think they should announce First people with disabilities Then Business class After that board Economy class from last rows"

Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "Food."

Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."

Cons: "Unfortunately WiFi services was off"

Pros: "Seat next to me was empty, helping with the very cramped conditions. Great food. Movies were okay."
Cons: "Late boarding, then delayed further due to departing passenger. Delay caused me to miss my connecting flight in Doha. 5 Star Airline marketing is nonsense. Same cramped seats as any other airline. Boeing 777 is a disappointment. 787 is much better."

Pros: "Food service was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving LAX and was about an hour late to arrive at Doha. Fortunately, despite the 45 minute window for connection, I managed to get my connecting flight to Islamabad thanks to good support from ground staff in Doha"

Pros: "The wider space between all seats and the selection of the food"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Flight delays"

Pros: "It was booked for my elderly parents and they were very pleased by the service they received."

Pros: "Check-in counter and gate staff were really accommodating and professional."
Cons: "Cabin crew lacked training. They skipped rows, didn’t apologize, forgot to bring things when requested and had to be reminded again & lacked common courtesy. One guy barely opened his mouth and talked by pointing fingers. So rude! The food portion size is an absolute joke! Never have I seen such a skinny sized meal. It was insane. I’m a lean guy and even I wasn’t full! The quality of the food in the second service was awful. My rice wasn’t cooked all the way & the bread was clearly stale."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "The plan was very hot and made the experience less than desirable."

Pros: "Arrival and departure is on time treatment is excellent very courteous For all category of passenger"
Cons: "South Indian food may. Made available"

Cons: "Did not know what Vegetarian Jain meal should taste like! Even goats and sheep woud not have liked the taste of this special meal. Fortunately, cabin crew member was kind enough to give me a regular Hindu veggie meal rather than my pre-selected Vegetarian Jain meal (VJML) - DO NOT CHOOSE VJML on Qatar, unless you wanna faint from the horrible food! The tray was dirty! Co-passengers in the row behind me were also complaining The audio lead of my headphone would not go into the outlet in the seat armrest! So I had to use audio from neighboring (empty) seat and sync it with video from screen for my seat. What a pain!"

Pros: "Friendly staff. Good food."
Cons: "Unlike my flight from US to Qatar, this flight was outdated and their video streaming touch device was old."

Pros: "Very organized, helpful staff, they also provide lots of entertainment and food"

Pros: "Good attentiveness from crew, food was fine. Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Boeing 787 was uncomfortable on the trip to Doha - hard seat cushions and little legroom. 777 much more comfortable on the leg to USA."

Pros: "Great take off and landing. Nice comfort packet, blanket, and pillow Good service and spacious seating in economy class."

Pros: "First time I got ice cream on a plane"
Cons: "Low calorie meals were horrible."

Pros: "We were late for our originally flight, got to LAX 15 minutes after check-in was closed, although we checked in online prior, but due to 4th of July weekend the freeway was very heavy traffic. So we ended up going back next day with the supervisor's incredible allowance, offer. I got very emotional when she told us our option. Thank you. Unfortunatley I didn't get her name, due to our shock))"

Pros: "free flowing wine and beer --- unlike previous flight on QA when the actual supervisor of the staff did not allow a proper stipend of the red wine --- also I witnessed her incivility to another passenger which was appalling -- the crew on this flight deserve to be commended"
Cons: "nothing on the actual flight --- but i felt we had been promised overnight hotel stay since the layover was 8 hours and 55 minutes --- if was not granted in spited of 2 eMails and promise at the time of booking"

Cons: "15 hours flight no WiFi...!!!!!! Last minute flight time change was sent via email..!!!! Almost 1 hour delay after boarding..!!!"

Pros: "Good service all the way to final destination. A+ service. Newer model airplane."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Great service and food"

Pros: "The plane number one is very good but the onther one to cairo is good not like the first"

Cons: "When I checked my two bags, I was told to pick them up in Doha and recheck them to my final destination at Rwanda. When I arrived in Doha I was told by the transfer desk that I did not need to pick up my bags because they had been checked to my final destination. I even asked them to pull up my flight information and to confirm that, which they did. However, when I arrived in Kigali, Rwanda, my bags were no where to be found. No one has found them yet. I also called Qatar Air before my flight and asked about hotel accommodations for my layover because my layover was from 6:00 pm to 7 am. When I called, I was told that I would be given a complimentary hotel room because of the length of the layover. However, when I arrived I was told that I did not qualify for the hotel accommodation. Then, I was told that a hotel room would cost 250. When i arrived at the hotel, I was told the cheapest was 325."

Pros: "Seat arrangements excellent Crews nice"
Cons: "Very disappointed about quality and frequently of food offered"

Pros: "Nothing. There was no flight. The flight was cancelled and you did not notify us. We found it out ourselves by accident. We tried to contact you guys but we could not call or anything other. You guys suck"

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Good crew, food was good for airline food. Entertainment offerings were good."
Cons: "Too many seats, 3-4-3 configuration means not even enough room to walk down aisle without bumping people in their narrow seats."

Pros: "Orderly boarding process. Considerate reseating when bulkhead with extra legroom were not usable."

Pros: "The crew was amazingly efficient serving food and drink. In the recline position the seat bottom extended which was far more comfortable than simply reclining."
Cons: "The food was mediocre and the selection of movies was very limited."

Pros: "Great organization, very efficient"
Cons: "Bag fees were not made clear on Kayak or Swiss website, seats on Edelweiss A320 we’re spaced too close together for my legs, though was not a problem on the 777."

Cons: "I never made it on the flight. It was over booked, they switched me over... I'm still at the airport, missing two days of my vacation. Flights have been delayed from SFO, causing me to miss so many of the connecting flights..."

Pros: "Smooth transfer from Terminal 3 to the International Terminal. Great airport. Easy boarding, friendly crew and very smooth flight."
Cons: "I was very happy with my flight experience with Swiss."

Pros: "Nope"
Cons: "The service could have been so much better. Food was not offered according to seating arrangements and so meal choices were not enough"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Seat a pretty comfortable."

Pros: "The seat was ok, I paid $ 115 per Trip ( total of $ 230) just to sit at the emergency exit to have some leg room and then I am sitting next to the bathroom and people stepping on my feet because they tend to hang out around the bathroom."

Cons: "Did NOT know ticket was economy light!!!! I WAS UPSET WE HAD TO PAY BAGGAGE FEE!!!!"

Pros: "Great cabin crew!"
Cons: "While waiting to board SFO-ZRH flight Swissair personnel walked around and randomly pulled out passengers from line to check luggage dimensions. Since manufacturers adhere to airline baggage standards, no violations were found during checks. This misguided effort only resulted in publicly humiliating Swissair customers. Boarding process was pure pandemonium...this was the first time in recent memory, where all coach passengers were invited to board at the same time! Very inefficient! Crowded seating in coach,with ten passengers sandwiched in across Boeing 767 aircraft. Competing airlines flying identical aircraft have nine across seatings Thin seat cushions cause leg cramps after a few hours."

Cons: "2 hours delay!"

Pros: "The seats would recline too far so that people behind would get their range of motion uncomfortably limited."

Pros: "The Boeing 777-300ER is ether new and clean."
Cons: "Seating was super tight. Once the person in front of me declined their seat the screen of the inflight entertainment system was right in front of my nose (no, my nose is not particularly long). I’ll consider flying Lufthansa or United next time - even if It required a stopover in Frankfurt or Munich."

Pros: "Staff and flight was really great. Everything went smoothly and on schedule. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The seating was almost unbearable. So small and cramped. Arm rest didn’t go all the way up so very hard to cuddle with my seat mate (my daughter). I couldn’t even put my arms by my side without pushing my seat neighbors off. Seat in front of me was in my lap. Hard to get out of seat to use restroom. Way to tight. Long flight from Boston to Zurich was so hard to bear. I understand making money...but this is ridiculous!!"

Pros: "Fast, on time."
Cons: "No entertainment at all, super uncomfortable"

Pros: "It's swiss. everything works. always."
Cons: "i didn't like leaving switzerland. but stockholm isn't so bad. gate agent can be a bit more careful when letting pre-boards on - too many people flying to scandinavia do not seem to respect boarding priority."

Pros: "Families with small children can board with first class passengers. The staff member who checked us in greeted my son by his name at the plane door!"
Cons: "Some flight attendants were not attentive to service."

Pros: "The food was good and the crew was nice."
Cons: "No entertainment offered and the seats were cramped."

Pros: "Tried hard but cannot recollect one thing that was better than average."
Cons: "Not even a smile from the purser and one other crew member on the Swedish leg. The captain hurriedly "explained", no one understood him, why we were so delayed, but he did not apologize! Zurich airport has no charging sockets! (Ancient) All of terminal A has not a single one! No one supervised the loading passengers not to interfere with those passing by. It was a complete mess. We took off 50 minutes late from Zurich, with no apparent reason. Worst in years for me. We sat in the plane for 30 minutes and were not offered even water. Big fail! (btw, I am unusually so critical)."

Pros: "Food and service were good"

Cons: "Despite paying for extra leg room I somehow needed more. Not Swiss Airs fault, but I know better for next time."

Pros: "seat too tight"

Cons: "100% of our checked luggage was lost and two days into our one week biking trip in Sweden we have heard NOTHING from Swiss Air. No knowledge of where the four large bags are, no follow up and no help. Basically, we have been left with biking clothing and little hope that our bags will show up before we leave Sweden. Unacceptable and we will NEVER fly this airlines again."

Cons: "Old plane, hard uncomfortable seats, no wifi, rigid flight attendants, awful food, middle seat (after paying for premium seating) with two enormous guys on either side, fixed armrest, AC dripped on me most of the flight and was told nothing could be done, interminable."

Cons: "I was stuck in an aisle seat in the back of the plane where there was literally no leg room - there was a metal box (video equipment?) in the very narrow space underneath the seat in front of me. Luckily there was no one sitting in the middle seat so I could put my legs there. Also, when flying to Europe from the west coast I prefer flying to the east coast first and then taking a red eye."

Pros: "super nice crew-really friendly, accommodating, happy, all that sort of thing. really liked them and they're awesome!!"
Cons: "i am a regular sized woman, size 8, and a bit tall 5'9" and the seat felt wayyyy to small for me. couldn't put my hands naturally by my sides and the arm rests were too high to be comfortable, so i had to sit there with my shoulders held up the entire flight. was so sore afterwards!! also, the headphones barely worked (only one side, on the replacement as well!) and the entertainment system shut down twice."

Pros: "Jennifer - Appreciate the security and follow-up"
Cons: "Not the traveler will need to get boarding, crew, comfort, food and entertainment next week."

Cons: "Turbines did not start up initially. 1h delay."

Cons: "Good was average to bad"

Cons: "Lufthansa lost 6 of our bags and left us with no information or compensation. I sent them emails but there is no response from customer service. Costed us $500 to buy things on emergency basis for our family and they delivered the bags after 2 days. This was very unprofessional and Lufthansa has to pay for it. Can you please help. Next time we will certainly have to avoid The airline as their gate transfer in Frankfurt is horrible with very rude security staff who has no interest helping our family to board the flight on tight connection. Instead the person decided to go on his break right when we were at the X-ray screening. How rude and unthoughtful."

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: "One crew member oversaw me several times when distributing beverages because the gentlemen next to me ordered two, and she assumed he's ordering for me (which he didn't). She explained herself, but didn't apologize but made it sound like it was my fault. When I ordered 2 beverages (wine and water), she said she doesn't have time to hand out two beverages to each passenger."

Pros: "Flight on time"

Pros: "All of it"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "Many things. Starting from the online/mobile check in process via United airlines. I was not given any other option but to check in through the United website. On that website I was not allowed to check in for my Lufthansa flights and i was stuck with seats I did not want in my 2 long intercontinental flights. This has happened before. Lufthansa has no option to check in online if my first flight leg is united. This is a very big drawback and also the reason I would not prefer to fly Lufthansa again. United is bringing the quality down."

Cons: "Delay"

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: "Helpful ground personnel - seems like this connection issue happens often"

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: "TV service"

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."

Cons: "Tiny, narrow seats."

Pros: "I liked how I was taken advantage of, knowing it will never happen again"
Cons: "After having my ticket Inadvertently canceled didn't like the lack of support in purchasing a new ticket through Luftansia's customer service agents that deals with consolidators such as Kayak. In the end I was left not be able to buy a ticket for three days after being quoted a specific price and charged about triple the rate originally quoted it initially quoted I wasted valuable time into my vacation along with an amazing amount of stress ."

This was the reason, why a chose KLM! Then I tried to connected on board but I couldn’t! WiFi was not available. Crew told me that they don’t know anything about it! I was disappointed and angry."

Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."

Pros: "The crew is really welcoming"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow and a bit too hard"

Pros: "General flight journey"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Passenger who needed wheelchair assistance it took KLM 50 minutes to get him off plane which delayed our boarding. KLM not prepared to handle passengers with needs"

Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Unexpected refueling stop. 2 hr delay Lost connection Reached destination after 18 hr delay"

Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"

Cons: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"

Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."

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

Cons: "The flight was cancelled and had to be rerouted on United Airlines."

Pros: "The flight arrived a few minutes early."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and in poor repair. The seats were extremely close together. The inflight entertainment system, wifi and passenger electric outlets were all non-functional. Even the wastebin in the lavatory was full and an extra bag was put on the floor."

Pros: "All good"

Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."

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

Cons: "My suitcase didn't come with the airline."

Pros: "Last year I flew Lufthansa which was my worst experience flying ever. I thought the new standard was so low I would never fly to Europe again. I had heard KLM was good but I felt this was as good as could be expected actually much better. The food was even good."
Cons: "I would have to dream something up."

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

Pros: "punctuality of boarding and flight time"
Cons: "attitude of crew in business class: no sense of true hospitality"

Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment on board in business. Stale buns - staff unapologetic. Older 737 with uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "The boarding was easy and you didn't have to wait inline for that long"
Cons: "KLM needs to upgrade the entertainment. It was very hard to see the images on the screen. The planes that KLM uses are old and they sure need to be upgraded."

Pros: "Need better quality tvs for such a long flight and better movies There were only 4 Bollywood movies and not the latest ones either"

Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."

Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"

Pros: "The aircraft was clean"
Cons: "The food was terrible, wifi was extremely expensive (Delta had free messaging over their wifi)"

Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."

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

Cons: "Bag was lost"

Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."

Cons: "I don’t like the limited choice of drinks on these short KLM flights."

Pros: "The flight was great."

Cons: "The Guy who had an accident when boarding causing a delay. Also I didn’t like the wait fir checking as passengers with children went before business class and should be after."

Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"

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

Pros: "From pre-boarding, to boarding, to the food, and the attentiveness, everything was top notch! The cleanliness of the plane was only topped by the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "The flight was marked at almost 11hrs but ended up being only 9...not a negative other than it meant not spending as much time on board!"

Pros: "The sandwiches were simple yet just the right touch, on all four flights."

Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."

Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "Limited movie selection. Crew seemed stressed. Gave me wrong meal and then swaped for the right one. I asked for Diet Coke and was given white wine. Food quality was not good."

Pros: "Wonderful"

Pros: "We really liked the KLM people, from the check in crew to the flight attendants."
