The layover in Istanbul was 1 hour 5 mins. That is NOT ENOUGH TIME to get from one gate to another and go through security again. By the time my plane landed from Kiev to Istanbul, the flight to San Francisco was already boarding. I had to cross a very long airport, go back into security check and then run another 15 mins. I barely made the flight and they were about to close the door when I arrived. Turkish Airlines should NOT SELL TICKETS WITH SUCH SHORT LAYOVER WITHOUT ACCOMODATING US or helping us to get to the other gate faster. It was a very bad experience. Why sell tickets with unreasonable layover times? It is not fair for the customer and not feasible to make the flight.
Pros: "The planes took off and landed smoothly"
Cons: "Short connection time - way too short for this size airport. Never book a transfer in Istanbul with less than 2.5 hrs connection time. The airport adherence to covid social distancing rules was a joke. I think it was the worst experience and provoked a lot of stress. The boarding was also chaotic and business class did not board separately. The Meals on board were poor - fish or lamb (smelly) they quickly run out of pasta in business class. This whole experience was bad."
Pros: "Crew was not very frindly and the Turkish airlines staff at Istanbul are not at all friendly and so rude. I will never recommend Turkish airlines to anyone."
Cons: "Very comfortable and well run."

Cons: "Better food options, more comfortable seats, easier access to wi fi"

Cons: "The flight from LAX Ron Istambul was delayed for 2.5h, then the flight from Istanbul to belgrade was delayed by 3.5h. Then we learned that our luggage did not arrive, after waiting for all the bags to come out. This was by far the worst flight we have ever experienced!"
Cons: "No usb chargers on plane"
Pros: "Great food, live tv (watched 2 World Cup games), great service."

Pros: "the crew were great clean cabin"
Cons: "no entertainment systems lowered the food standard comparing to previous time I flew with them long boarding times"
Cons: "Choice of food on business class was very limited"
Pros: "Traveling business class makes all the difference, as it should. Trolley service lets one see and choose a meal. Attendants were very nice and helpful. Also, the Turkish Air Lounge in Istanbul is incredible and almost worth a destination in its own right."
Cons: "We end up spending almost 1,200 use extra to reach Washington and return to Yaounde."
Pros: "It was spacious for being Economy."
Cons: "Flight crew that was assisting on my side was awful. Completely disrespectful and not willing to help or listen. Not to mention, special meal was requested online months in advance yet they didn't have any vegetarian meal left and I was left with eating break and fruit."

Pros: "Most important all flights ran on schedule. Food service and quality were excellent and a great surprise Clean and new aircraft I would travel Turkish Air again and recommend to other friends"
Cons: "At 6'3" I was a bit jammed up in Economy Security was a bit overdone. Initial screening X-Ray carry on bags, thru metal detector. After landing Zurich--Istanbul, again thru xRay and hand screening, then again at gate complete screening again. I guess better too much than not enough."
Pros: "The service was great and all staff were friendly."
Pros: "Crew, plane, entertainment."
Cons: "That it took 4 day's to get my luggage. I deserve to be compensated."
Cons: "Seat was broken. Did not recline. Boarding was a Zoo"

Pros: "Turkish Airlines were a great surprise - everything was much better than expected. Highly recommend flying with them."
Pros: "Food was excellent. Vegetarian meal remembered. Service was good, pleasant crew. Good selection of films."

Cons: "Very good experience on a nonstop from San Francisco to Istanbul & on to Thessaloniki. Very friendly professional staff. Good food. Charge outlets at the seats. Big choice of free movies. Istanbul airport is very busy. We had delays arriving and leaving for the connection."
Pros: "The wide range of entertainment on offer, personal USB port,"
Cons: "Touch screen did not work properly although once I figured out how to use alternate controls it was fine, had an aisle seat center and there was no way to really stick my legs out withought them being cramped. Staff seemed hurried and more interested in talking with one another across the row I was in. They were not particularly friendly. My first couple flights with Turkish were much much better"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was ok."
Cons: "The people next to me drove me crazy and one of the stewardess spilled trash on me"
Pros: "excellent services provided by the crew members, nice food, great entertainment (up to date),"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Always delay and let to flight ... Not respect the time"
Pros: "Plane itself was nice with very comfortable seats. Good selection of movies and shows to watch in flight."
Cons: "For a flight from IST-NPL they only had beef options for food. Nepal is a Hindu country and majority of people on the flight were Hindu. It's very inconsiderate for them to bit have planned for more non beef food options. I turned on the service button 3 times within an hour. No one came. Separately I also asked 3 flight attendants for some water. None of them got me water! There were at least four parties with kids younger than 3 and a few older people. It would have been nice if boarding call was made to allow these people to board first so they could settle down camly, without stressing the kids and everyone else behind them!!"
Pros: "I liked the little packs we were given with chapstick and the crew was (with a few exceptions) friendly."
Cons: "the food was slow... i was starved"
Not the best crew. Extremely annoying with mask wearing. Even when I was eating and drinking they would come up to you to tell you to wear your mask. Extremely annoying.
Pros: "La ponctualité."
Cons: "Variété des boissons proposées."
Cons: "There was no amenities pack given in Premium economy. The food was ok. It would have been nice to have been offered another bread roll. Seat comfort was fine, but I kept getting hit by the separating curtain as the flight attendants went back and forth from economy."
Pros: "The sear was messy they didn't clean it it was full of pieces of bread."
Cons: "boarding the flight on time instead of delaying it two times... and also putting the information at the flight information screen if I haven't gone to ask to the airport information stand I would never know the flight departure gate that was at the complete opposite side of the airport of were the initial flight was going to depart."
Pros: "Crew asked us if we’d like to move to an empty row to be more comfortable without us even requesting it."

Pros: "Crew very professional"
Cons: "Boarding was a little confusing"
Cons: "Boarding clusterf..."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the seat comfortable."
Cons: "Never got the pre-ordered wheelchair in Paris and only after long negotiations at JFK. Also, Delta lost my checked bag between JFK and DCA."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Food was good and tasty."
Cons: "Plane seemed a little worn, which surprised me since it was an A380. Not that old. I had purchased an upgrade to a seat with more legroom, only to find out there was no USB plug for charging my phone. All standard seats have them. Would have been nice to be warned about that."
Cons: "10 minutes late to the airport....... No help, no refund, no nothing. Never using you again"
Pros: "Check in process was easy. The flight attendants are all very helpful and kind. We are playing was OK but it could’ve been cleaned a little better before we got on board."
Cons: "Check in process was easy. The flight attendants are all very helpful and kind."
Cons: "Engine noise in the cabin is loud."
Cons: "My entire travel experience became extremely rushed and chaotic due to my flight being canceled and me being alerted -LESS THAN AN HOUR BEFORE IT TOOK OFF! This is unacceptable."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "The usual Air France flights to Rome, that I have been flying for years, are now operated by Joon. For a couple months nothing changed, except the way the crew dressed. But now Joon is showing its true nature as a LOW COST airline.Seats cramped. Snacks and apple juice are now available for purchase only."
Pros: "That we were heading home. Nice seats. Good food. Lots of entertainment choices. Power plugs ( USB and European power) were appreciated. Wine as a choice with meal was appreciated and brandy after the meal."
Cons: "Some of the shows and movies were a bit 'trashy'. Long flight. I was in the middle seat next to an inattentive octanegarian who was nice but kept calling the flight crew to fix her mess up of the video system. No air controls on this plane - so it was overly warm. 10 hours of overly warm makes for a stinky passenger. Oof."
Pros: "Good size plane. It didn’t end up being full so there was plenty of room to move around. Quick flight and easy."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "The entertainment screen was a small 4" screen. The movie selection was outdated. The screen in my seat did not work. Flight attendant said she would "call to have it reset" but it never worked. Fortunately, there was an adjacent empty seat that I moved to on my own initiative and without the flight attendant offering a seat change."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant most of the time"
Cons: "Boarding process is total chaos Took 40 mins to.check in at desk , pre ordered for wheelchair Never showed ...total zoo Beds advertised as lie flat bu they are NOT 180 degree flat , legs hang down - bad for circulation"

Cons: "CDG is a monster. The distances are long . The signage is poor and when I asked for directions the diirections I got were wrong."
Cons: "The flight was late, real late."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "They start serving late the apperitif before taking off and take it back right after."
Pros: "Service was excellent, top of line Food ,some of the best I’ve had on a airline Seats & pillows comfy But we were in La Première! Also the equipment- a380 was terrific"
Cons: "Only 1 bathroom (toilet) for all of first class"
Cons: "Initially the flight from Lima was delayed for almost 1:30 and then we lost this connection then Airfrance rebooking to SAS they tell us to take all our luggage’s and check in again it’s was awful and really bad from then walk and spend time we suppose to be quite at home ... the worst was in SAS have ano system and for 1.5 kilos extras you might pay 33€ so after long day and wait, running everywhere with all my staff I see to eat a 11€ menu at the airport with not more explanation from Airfrance .. really bad and worst services.."
Pros: "The inflight service"
Cons: "The 3 hours delay"
Pros: "Love the flight attendant, loads of food couldn’t take it anymore. Professionalism at its peak."
Pros: "The food, the service and everything else is fine, quite good."
Cons: "However, our baggages were 1 day late. Your missing baggages would deliver to you 1 day later, for some maybe 2 days later...Quite a few people said that it's been always like this with air Aeroflot if there is a transfer flight."
Pros: "On time after latish start"
Cons: "Staff took carryon bags even for skypriority even tho lots of room in overhead, allegedly to speed deplaning. Nowarning to repack. Infuriating and stubborn staff!"
Pros: "It was Amazing staff helpfull and fresh.. love it"
Cons: "Flight of almost 3 hours was not entreteiment at all just magazines."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, I was sent around to multiple desks and terminals and no one wanted to assist me, then my luggage was lost."
Pros: "We were on a 9 hour flight which is pretty exhausting on its own. However, Air France provided you with a pillow and blanket, as well as headphones, so that you can make the best of the long trip."
Cons: "The chairs, for whatever reason, after just not that comfortable. Too squishy and they make noise when you adjust your position. I fidget a lot on flights so I felt like I was making a lot of noise. Also the plane didn't have cold air, do you get toasty pretty quick."
Cons: "The crew was not very polite."
Pros: "Service was much better than on the flight from MIA to CDG 3 weeks before - that was very poor. Entertainment was excellent - great selection of movies. Premium Economy was definitely worth the upgrade cost."
Cons: "Boarding was a complete debacle - no control over who went where. Sky Priority line was full of 50 people who weren't Sky Priority, and there was only one person checking passports. The two people at the desk didn't care when I noted this. We were called to the desk in advance of boarding to check passport information. When we got to the check in line, we were taken aside for more passport checking, even though we are US citizens with Trusted Traveler status in the GOES program. We were one of the first people at the departure lounge, and one of the the last to board."
Pros: "Flight arrived safely."
Cons: "Air France offered no help rebooking missed connection at JFK due to delay of more than 2 hours in arrival."
Pros: "Good seat near the front."
Cons: "Delayed arrival by 30 minutes."
Pros: "The flight crew and flights itself were great."

Cons: "Our first leg from Paris was delayed and we missed our flight to Dubrovnik. We then had to hire a car and drive 6 hours to ensure we wouldn't lose a day more of our holiday."
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "Seat to seat space OK for anyone under 4 ft tall. Pressed intoth seat framein front, I couldn't even turn or get my feet under the seat to extend."
Pros: "The service provided by Jet and Air France was excellent. The wheelchair service did help very much"
Cons: "Left a little late for no apparent reason."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "For the continuation of this flight of course I was still in the same seat in the middle and I had signed up and reserved an aisle seat"
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Food was ok - don't know why my vegi meal didn't have cheese and dairy in it, would have made if better. Boarding was ridiculous long line. Could have been more efficient"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Pros: "I thought it was awesome to see the crew assist with holding babies so parents could get a little respite on the flight."
Pros: "Smooth landing!"
Cons: "Late 30”"
Cons: "Delayed from another flight but this crew tried their best to get us up in the air"
Pros: "Respect and support"
Pros: "Crew was good. Could watch movie on phone. Arrived early."
Cons: "No seat back entertainment. Didn’t offer lunch options, just snacks. Barely made it to boarding due to previous United flight being delayed. Appearently, since we arrived early, was no staff at gate so couldn’t de-board."
Cons: "It was delayed due to my earlier trip but united tried to get me a connection which was atleaogood. The overall trip was 24 hours and due to all these delays my trip took 31 hours."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for a half hour. No one announced anything about the delay until we were almost leaving. It would have been nice to at least share what was happening and when we could expect to leave. Delays are always frustrating but especially so late at night and when no information is given."
Pros: "Standard, quick domestic flight home. Nothing special."
Cons: "I paid for power, entertainment and dinner and I got none of that. My legs were FAR too long for sitting there. I am a disabled vet, the whole trip was PAINFUL."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The flight was more than half empty and instead of allowing customers to move forward to the “premium” seats, the flight crew keep everyone all bunched up in the back of the plane. It would have been a nice customer service gesture to allow people to move forward. And, hey, maybe next time people would have bought those seats if they could have experienced them. Guess I should have felt lucky to remain on the plane and not get punched in the face..."
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude."
Cons: "The flight was late, which I realize isn't any one person's fault, but it was annoying. We were actually taxiing almost as long as we were in the air! The part that was really frustrating was that my infant's car seat was damaged, but United refused to acknowledge that they did it because it hadn't been something severe like being run over by a forklift. The good news is that I now know to avoid flying United."
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Seats not very comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Wi-Fi dropped for an extended period of time during the flight. Seat was not comfortable."
Pros: "Was clean and nice"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "The next time I'm going to drive to Chicago to save $500.00 or more on my trip to South America or use a different airline."
Pros: "United had gotten the idea that they should charge more for their flights. They've done it by inventing a new "basic economy" class which costs just what it used to cost to fly economy, only you don't get to pick your seats, don't get to bring a carry on, and can't check in for your flight without one of their staff verifying your personal item isn't secretly a carry-on."
Cons: "Being treated like a third class citizen because I'm poor."
Pros: "Fastnees off the trip"
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "Changing my seat... my was flight delayed to San Francisco from Chicago, I called united and nothing was ever done!! not a good experience with united!"
Pros: "I survived."
Cons: "Just before takeoff we had to abort and the crew slammed on the brakes. It was entirely frightening. We sat on the runway for a long time after that while the crew did not have clear answers for what was happening or why. Several things happened while we were on that plane that were unnerving for the passengers. So much so that at least one passenger threw up. Very scary. We did end up taking that plane on to our destination two hours later, but it was the worst flight experience of my life."
Cons: "Let's see my seat did not recline. The stewardess bumped into me every time she passed. The flight attendant was wearing way way way too much cologne. They had no room for my carry on. The beverages took way to long. I could not use the Internet. You changed my flight time over and over and over I was supposed to leave at 5 I didn't leave until 10. I could not sleep because the flight attendants was wearing Christmas lights and they would wake me up and she keep bumping in to be be is she did not know how to walk in the isles. The cookie were stale. There was something in my cup so I could not drink my free drink. There's more. It was the worst flight I have ever been on."
Pros: "Prompt, organized boarding. Professional, pleasant staff."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked. My adult son and I had tickets to "see agent" and given seats together. But they'd also assigned his seat a another person, who was already settled. Luckily, there was a seat left, and both arrived at out destination. Their solution was to move him, even tho we were traveling together."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The economy seats are TOO CLOSE TOGETHER. Attendants NEED to be more aware of the size of carry-on items and the amount each person brings onto the plane. People in the front 10 rows of the plane should not be putting their luggage in the back, taking up space so people in groups 3-5 have space to put their luggage."
Pros: "Roomy seats. Good leg room."
Cons: "Seat comfort is ok, they do not recline very much. You can only watch movies if you have an app on your phone or tablet."
Pros: "Liked the leg room. Flights were on time"
Cons: "Glass of soda with more ice than soda kinda sucked."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "First of all, the crew was amazing. I had just been traveling for about 20 hours and I had a seat towards the back of the economy section. After traveling that long, I was getting antsy to be at my destination, and I asked the gate agent if she could bump me to a row towards the front of economy- thankfully the plane wasn't full, and she was able to! It's the little things like that, that are what make me fly United. Also, the cabin crew on the flight was great! Of course, the economy section of the plane wasn't an ideal amount of space, but come on- it was an hour flight, and they did a good job of trying to spread people out so that the rows weren't packed."
Cons: "Boarding took a little longer because the plane was being cleaned. I believe they said the overnight flight got in a little late and they still had to clean the plane. We boarded late, but still got to our destination early. Negative turned into a positive- you can't beat that!"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Was given a couple of blankets that I asked for. Everyone was very professional. Very accommodating."
Cons: "Departure time changed at least six times. Gate and plane were both unbearably cold - passengers were all complaining. Departure gate at EWR was gross, run-down, and did not have working outlets."
Pros: "Gate agent moved us to first class due to lack of seats in main. Nice to see they can do that."
Pros: "Crew was attentive. My seat was taken by someone else but crew helped me find another seat. (Which was fine by me). Pilot kept passengers in formed of weather conditions and bumpy ride."
Pros: "The staff on the plane were very good."
Cons: "The flight was oversold which apparently gave the employee at the gate a reason to be rude. Also the plane was freezing. People were pulling out blankets and covering themselves with anything available."
Pros: "That the plane actually took off and landed fine."
Cons: "Flight delayed almost 2 hours. I booked this flight on this airline as my previous flight on a different airline was delayed over 7 hours."
Pros: "Easy flight , no fuss no muss . Great snacks ."
Cons: "More seating area in the airport near the gate , flight itself was great ."
Pros: "Price was good. Flight attendant was particularly good and promptly checked and verified I had a wheelchair secured for Mpls. Alll flight attendants held positive personable attitude. Arrived on time"
Cons: "One of the crew members was very mean towards some people I was sitting near. They were older and didn't realize that once we pushed off you had to remain in your seat and she came and told them they were breaking the law and would be arrested for standing up, in such a nasty tone they didn't say another word the whole flight. When we were offered something to drink they declined. I jumped out of my seat realized I forgot to ask where the bags were placed that were collected on the jet bridge and went back to ask if they were in baggage claim or not and she yelled at me for turning around and told me she could not speak me because I had exited the plane already."
Pros: "Newer plane. Very nice staff"
Cons: "Floor around seat was dirty. Lot of exaggerated braking. Suggested a new pilot perhaps?"
Pros: "The boarding process was on time."
Pros: "Boarding and deplaining went smoothly"
Cons: "Rear seats didn't recline and we're not as comfortable as other passengers"
Pros: "The flight staff were really nice"
Cons: "No free entertainment options."
Pros: "Nothing. The flight didn't exist."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled for aircraft maintenance with very little notice (waiting at the gate) and the next available flight didn't leave until the next day. Got put up in a $75 airport hotel room WITHOUT my luggage and was provided a $10 food voucher for meals. Are you kidding me??? So, I must pay for your problem? This was ridiculous and extremely inconvenient."
Cons: "Had to change plans because the septic line wasn't taken care of so the lines were frozen. The plane wasn't warmed up for us to board. We were told to exit the plane and go to another terminal but never explaned to take the shuttle . I took the Tran and had to go back through security and almost missed the plane. I was the last person to board. This was my 1st time traveling to that airport. No way to know that the Tran would require me to pass through security checkpoint again. Get better communication with people. The lady at the desk was just saying go to terminal A! They should have had a person directing all of us to go to the shuttle and bussed us to the terminal."
Pros: "Seats were uncomfortable. ...no entertainment"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "3 seperate broken or missing parts on planes? How could I be comfortable with United moving forward? I've never had that problem on any other airlines."
Seat 5A could not lie flat!
Pros: "The crew wasn’t very friendly and there’s very little legroom."
Pros: "Loved everything! Including the food."
Cons: "I’m not sure if there was WiFi, i wished that would’ve been advertised. If possible can you advertise the drinks and snacks selections. I booked my flight with Lufthansa but it was operated by another company which made it difficult to find"
Pros: "All seats were very comfortable and spots where I can view everything and crew were awesome."
Cons: "Local travelers should be offered even water."
Cons: "Rest rooms were clean, food was adorable, good coffee, no complaints."
Cons: "Flight was late, very little communication, hot and uncomfortable and slow, and everyone missed their connections."
Pros: "The ticket was affordable."
Cons: "It was not clear who was or wasn’t supposed to get meals so I only got a breakfast but no dinner. Also the flight was absolutely freezing and no offer of blankets was made."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Connecting gate was on the other side of the airport. We were running from one side of the airport to another. They should have provided a shuttle service for all of those passengers."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "The entaertainment system, TV , movies etc, wasn’t working and they tried and tried but couldn’t get it to work. Not a common occurrence I am sure."
Pros: "The personnel AFTER passport control was wonderful, both airport and United. Passport control workers failed to recognize or help move us through to be able to board in time while they allowed other passengers to go ahead who had same departure. Plane waited 30 mins past take off for us."
Cons: "Brussels airport staff at pass control needed to acknowledge departure concerns to prevent plane delay of takeoff. Many passengers missed their connection in Chicago because of our delay boarding due to pass control wait and lack of help."
Pros: "The seats were wide tall and comfortable, there was enough room for the legs as well."
Cons: "A little glass of juice would have been nice from the airline."
Pros: "flight was awesome"
Cons: "the only thing i dislike about etihad airlines is they didn’t provide me accommodation for 19 hours long stay over ..! even i met one of the lay incharge of etihad she told me that it’s your problem you have to look out for ...she didn’t help me at all"
Pros: "Helpful crew"
Cons: "No food except for purchase. Expected at least cup of coffee/crackers"
Pros: "The flight and services were OK, the only bad thing - my baggage did not arrive David Silberman"
Cons: "Very disappointing, Lufthansa airline sold my return ticket to another customers with out notifying me, so i’m stuck in here now and i have to find another ticket. And of course the flight is not refundable."
Cons: "Worst entertainment system"
Cons: "the fact I bought a new ticket"
Cons: "Not enough space for my legs"
Pros: "The plan arrived earlier than it was scheduled,everything wss smooth."
Pros: "Crew was polite, but..."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed unused to the idea that Orthodox Jews won't sit beside people of the opposite sex. This made boarding take longer than it needed to. The airline should figure out a way to streamline this process on flights to/from Tel Aviv."
Cons: "They change my flight, and I had no kosher food in the other one"
Cons: "Service for my mom was great!"
Pros: "Business class. Great service and truly gourmet food. Departure & arrival exactly on time.... a first with JFK. Very nice present of a large box of Neuhaus chocolates upon landing."
Cons: "Silly but the toiletries bag was cumbersome and contained very little. Unlike our return flight to JFK the outbound flight to BRU had very, very poor food and I'm being politr."
Pros: "The crew was polite."
Cons: "Food was bad. Seats not very comfortable. Food was awful. Very few movies in English."
Pros: "We are not frequent fliers and I have been reading about legroom problems. Certainly not on Brussels Air. A delight."
Pros: "Very hardworking crew, always offering extra food, snacks, water, patient with smiles and great attitude Very good food in economy, I was surprised"
Pros: "Great l! The food was good, landing was smooth and seats comfortable. Entertainment options were ok but could be better. Overall I enjoyed my experience and would love to fly with Brussels airlines again."
Cons: "We got stuck on the plane for an additional 5 hours before take off because of the smallest amount of snow. Even knowing how much extra time they did not load any extra food on the plane. We finally took off only to be rerouted to Lome instead of Accra which took an additional 2 hours. The whole thing took an extra 7 hours. From 11am to 12:55 pm we were provided only 1 meal and ice cream. The staff were not apologetic at all, they said if we wanted to be mad at someone it should be the weather... They should probably go back to customer service school."
Pros: "Pleasant crew,good ice cream"
Cons: "Meals are OK by repetitive if you have several long flights in one day."
Cons: "When I got to the airport my airline informed me that it was a standby ticket, which it never told me when booking and I can't believe it wa a standby ticket because it wasn't cheap."
Pros: "The plane was clean and on time."
Cons: "They charged for water! I couldn't get regular water on the plane. I had spent down all my euro, so I didn't have the 3 euro for a bottle of water. They would not accept American money either. After a while, I had to take a medication and needed water so went to one of the crew in his station to ask for it, explaining the situation. He gave me some water, but pretty much shamed me in the process. He was saying it was hard for the crew to have to charge, but they were made to do it now, and what would it look like if other passengers saw him giving me the water and not charging?! OMG!"
Cons: "The fact that they went on strike and left us with no one at the gate when we arrived or no one to explain what is going on. Very difficult / stressful time when in a foreign country."
Cons: "There was a a man who I believe is the lead of the serving crew was very disrespectful and mean to passenger. I would never board an airplane when I see this man in the aircraft."
Pros: "Pleasant staff, entertainment system is ok although a bit outdated."
Cons: "Our flight (operated by Air Canada) was delayed due to a control tower fire. Other flights seemed to have been delayed 1 or 2 hours, but ours was delayed 3.5 hours. That's not really the airline's fault, but it seems like they didn't want to communicate updates or give us any options for alternate flights. They also listed the delay at just under 3 hours, rather than the real 3.5 we were late leaving the gate (to avoid giving out vouchers, I suspect)."
Pros: "Nothing. Wanted it to be over already"
Cons: "Thw flight attendents gave a really bad service. They forgot to bring me food. The plain was really small and crowded... There was a lot of noise."
Pros: "I've love Kayak for many years. Booked my ticket directly with Kayak this year. Great service with timely travel updates. First time flying Brussels Airlines. Great planes, wonderful staff and service. Would absolutely recommend Thank you"
Cons: "The aircraft was filthy, very dirty, especially the toilet and the sitting area. Terrible food. Very hot, AC did not work well. Outdated movies and TV series."
Cons: "I bought my flight 2 months before, and at the gate I was told I'm on stand by, after the check in agent already took my bag, and without any explanation. No one could tell me WHY I was all of a suddent on standby. The answer I got was "I don't know, that's just how it is in the system". Completely unacceptable and against airline policy. I will be filing an official complaint with Brussels Airlines."
Cons: "I have no words flew not honored and I had to buy a ticket at the airport. Thank you for your service!"
Pros: "The fight was fine. No issues."
Cons: "My biggest disappointment was that no one on the flight was informed that ALL the luggage checked in on the aircraft did not arrive in Budapest. Everyone (about 70-80 passengers) stood for a long while at Budapest Airport for baggage pickup, then went over to talk to Hungarian lost luggage personnel to file their baggage. Why didn't the airline tell us upon check-in, or even announce to the passengers on the aircraft that the bags had not been loaded? This would have saved everyone 10 hours later to try to figure out what happened."
Pros: "I liked the leg room in economy but the chairs were very uncomfortable for sleeping. The staff was amazing and helpful and overall an enjoyable flight."
Cons: "It was ok flight - not full airplane - good"
Cons: "My flight was scheduled to leave at 6:20 pm 06/08/16. Took off at scheduled departure time but an hour into the flight had to turn around due to navigation system not working (2hrs flying time). Navigation was fixed, took off for 2nd time at 10 pm, fell asleep, awoke at 3 am to a messge over the intercom stating navigation had went out again and we had once again turned around and we were just outside of Chicago (6 hours flying time). I spent 8 hrs on a plane to fly to my origin airport. This was my first overseas flight and my first time flying with United. I got a frozen turkey sandwich and sorbert for dinner. I have been placed on an American Airline flight leaving at 8:50 am but I needed to be in London at my scheduled arrival time. I've lost approximeny 14 hrs of my trip including irreplaceable reservations that I've missed as well as very important time with my significant other that I get to see once every 2 months. I took off unpaid vacation time for this trip as well. Please contact me via email or cell phone to discuss what sort of compensation can be done for this very unfortunate chain of events."
Pros: "Overall plesant."
Cons: "No snack not even a peanut."
Pros: "Crew were polite. Due to late BHX departure VCE connecting passengers were given barcode pass for fast lane thru security & passport control. BRU huge & a bit confusing. esp for arrivals from GB connecting to Italy. Lots of escalators and walking. Brussels airlines were fine. However, in future I would avoid using BRU as a connecting point unless more time between flights."
