Airline reviews

Pros: "Having social distance space to take a nap"
Cons: "I sat in the middle seat of the middle of the plane and the staff kept skipping me during meal and drink service because they assumed the other side took care of me. So that was annoying. I had to keep flagging them down."

Pros: "The check-in crew in Chicago was very nice and efficient. The flight crew on-board were not friendly, they were very curt and rushed, and did not go out of their way to be helpful."
Cons: "Friendlier staff during the flight. Better food for breakfast. The connection port for my headphones did not work...I would not have been able to watch movies if I hadn't brought my own single connection head phones."

Cons: "Ord to Doh: People kept window blinds open all through 15 hour flight Flight temperature kept very warm"

Pros: "Good food and good hospitality"

Cons: "The gentleman next to me had broad shoulders, so I spent most of the flight with my body a bit twisted, and eating without being able to move my right arm normally was undesirable. The cabin was kept a bit warm throughout the flight. We had a long wait (30 - 45 minutes after leaving the gate) before takeoff."

Pros: "Food was great Seats were comfortable Everyone was super nice"

Cons: "A chorus of crying infants..."

Pros: "Great service and crew"

Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides. Qatar should revise their claim of most room in cabin - this 12 hour flight was one of the roughest I’ve had in a long time comfort wise."

Cons: "The food"

Pros: "My flight from Chicago to Doha was late to come in and there was a gate agent waiting for us and two other passengers with a sign when we got off the plane. He told us that our flight had already left but he would get us on the next one. We ended up getting seats on the next flight but then were also given the option to get a temporary visa and explore Doha for the night. We opted for the comped night which included a very nice hotel and $100 in meal vouchers. We absolutely LOVED Doha and the hotel and food was fantastic! I don't think I have ever received better service from an airline or a hotel. We ended up walking around Souq Waquif and the downtown until 1am (we are two young females!) with no issue and just used Uber to get to and from the hotel. Everything was so well laid out for us! No complaints whatsoever!"

Pros: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"
Cons: "I wish the airline was a bit more organized with boarding. I saw people with other zones boarding even when they were not called. The air hostess was friendly but I kinda got a feeling that she is doing me a huge favor when I asked for something more."

Pros: "Hospitality, boarding process"
Cons: "Food was slightly undercooked (chicken). Should have better process to check for that"

Pros: "Enjoyed the food and the service from the crew. Plane was new and relatively new and comfortable."

Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."

Cons: "I did not like the entertainment because it did not work well!!!!!"

Cons: "No consistency with hand luggage. My companions and I were held to strict weight limits. Others were getting on with three and four bags."

Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."

Pros: "everything was as expected from a world-class in the travel world."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Quick and easy boarding and decent crew."
Cons: "Food wasn't great, but edible. No options for a vegan who didn't choose a vegan meal as the flight was booked last minute. Unhealthy food."

Pros: "The aircraft was kinda old.. There was no usp plug to charge ur phone. . This was an issue for me. . I was out of charge and i wanted to make some calls after landing"

Cons: "Boarding staff give us wrong advice to make extra money from the passenger. They also pressurized us to decide quickly. our each check in baggage was over weight 1 KG or less than 1 KG due to faulty scale at home. Instead of giving us a choice or advice that you are allowed two more hand bags. They pressurized us to make one baggage over weight from all 7 bags and harassed us to do it quickly because they are closing counter in 20 minutes. That's how they charged me another $65. Also they lied on the counter that your seats are in a row but when i went into the plane our seats were separate. Lesson learned don't trust the person over the counter of Qatar airways."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "The boarding was unusually long. We stood in line for twenty minutes to board the plane. This was difficult for many. The staff and airlines were unorganized and scattered."

Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Are the seats getting smaller or am I getting bigger?"

Pros: "Captain kept us informed regarding takeoff"
Cons: "Sitting too long"

Pros: "I hope this carrier grows by leaps and bounds. The plane was new & clean, the pilots executed flawless takeoff & landing, the flight attendants were friendly to a fault, the plane left on time & arrived early. Round trip Orlando-Venice was $980 round trip. The only niggling detail was the somewhat limited selection of movies."

Pros: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."

Cons: "There was a supposed difficulty with my entry in Europe when I tried to Check into Chicago. I thought that I had to cancel my flight. Swiss air representatives had to do much consultation, which took nearly an hour, while I was standing there the whole time. At the end, I was thanked for my patience and told all should be well and not even given a small upgrade for the distress this caused me. Traveling is disagreeable in general now, and personally, even moreso after this episode."

Pros: "Very friendly staff, a wide variety of entertainment options."

Pros: "Flight boarding was quick and fast and food was great."
Cons: "Seats had no room and if someone in front reclined the tv was right in your face. Also what happen to having individual fans above. It was so hot I felt sick the whole way and when we pushed the call button no one came had to flag down an flight attendant walking by. We had to ask three more times to get the heat down.

Cons: "Our second time on a 787 Dreamliner across the Atlantic as about the same as the the first. The seat pitch is very tight so when a passenger reclines into the next row the seatback nearly touches your face. The Dreamliner seats seem to be very hard and it's difficult to get comfortable."

Cons: "Flight was delayed a bit due to a couple passenger booking/misc issues. 1st class didn’t get gate bevfood service. Oven was busted so my meal wasn’t available. Entertainment console had all channels functional except — not really an issue I just really wanted to have ESPN playing in the background"

The premium seats were very comfortable ."

Pros: "On time departure/arrival despite weather in Atlanta. Always a fan of free messaging and choice of snacks."
Cons: "Delta needs to invest in their gate area at ORD. Understand it’s not a hub but it’s a key business/leisure destination. The MD-80s are ok for a short hop but over 1 hour unless you’re in Comfort+, it’s tight."

Pros: "Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA."
Cons: "The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird."

Cons: "The special meal I ordered was delivered to someone else. The entertainment system wasn't functioning properly and no English susbtiles we're offered for any of the movies, unlike my previous Delta flights (for some reason there were only Chinese)"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cancelled my flight because I lost one of the arms"

Cons: "Layover"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay for no apparent reason at first (supposed mechanical issues with plane) and then waited on plane at gate for a missing pilot who never got picked up from his airport and got stuck in Chicago traffic trying to get to O'Hare. Eventually had to take pilot from another flight before leaving at 8:45 when flight was scheduled for 6:00am."

Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Snacks!!! Nice flight crew."
Cons: "I liked everything."

Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."

Pros: "The movie I watched was pleasant, although I had trouble hearing it because of the situation described below."
Cons: "There was a family seated behind us with several crying, loud children. We were miserable. Even my headphones with a Mozart sonata cranked up to loud did little to mask the noise. Probably not Dela'a fault, but the crew did nothing to mitigate the problem."

Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."

Pros: "One of The crew members a guy from Texas was nice"
Cons: "The female crew Members were taking loudly and a lot during the flight it was difficult to sleep as a result. The food was low and very very bad"

Pros: "I missed my flight for the first time and I was having a complete meltdown at the check in desk until the sweetest agent said "oh no worries sweetheart, let's find you another flight back home"... It seems so simple but with the morning I had, this simple act had me in tears! The kindness and patience she showed me was amazing and definitely the reason I will always fly Delta to any and every destination they are able to take me! <3"

Pros: "No fee to get on an earlier flught"
Cons: "When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option"

Cons: "I am a 5'3" 125# woman who, unfortunately, had a middle seat assignment. The passenger to my right, on the aisle, weighed approximately 375# and took up 1/3 of my seat. The arm was not able to go down comfortably, and when it did it was not usable . The passenger on my left, window seat, was probably 6'7" and had to sit with a man spread in order to fit. I could not move and was extremely uncomfortable. The plane was overbooked so I was unable to move. Therefore, worst flight ever. Plus, I paid for a full seat and was only able to occupy half of it."

Pros: "The in-flight service was good."

Pros: "The good the crew and the bed"
Cons: "The overheads were noisey and loud and made it difficult to sleep"

Pros: "Delta's free in-flight wi-fi for entertainment (movies, tv, music) on your own device is a big plus. Not so easy to find (there's sparse information in their magazine or seat-back brochure), but once you find it there's a wealth of options."

Pros: "Flew in past no problem this trip seats were very close when person in front reclined his chair it touched my knees. Not enough leg room."
Cons: "Not enough leg room, knees hurt difficult to sleep. Also booked flight 3 months in advance so we could sit together as family. At gate they put my husband 20 rows separate from us. Surprised by this, I thought Delta was a better airline. Staff on plane was courteous and worked hard for entire trip."

Pros: "There was a lot to choose entertainment wise."
Cons: "We had a child behind us who would not stop screaming and playing with the tray table. One of the crew members gave me a hard time for having my purse out for 1 minute while I was taking my prenatal vitamin even though we were sitting on the runway for over an hour at this point and the man in front of me had his chair fully reclined so I wasn't able to get to it under my seat.. Even though as she said, we were about to take off, but she didn't say anything to the man in front of me. This was my second time flying with them and the first experience was much better."

Pros: "The flight was amazing with every detail. Big thanks from cabin crew as well as i had a free upgrade to business seat"
Cons: "Everything was awesome and nothing was bad in this flight. Big thanks to the cabin crew team"

Pros: "Crew were excellent making everyone comfortable in a long flight."
Cons: "Nothing arrived on time even though it departed late"

Pros: "That was good every thing, thank you."
Cons: "Nathing wrong."

Pros: "I like everything regarding the airline."
Cons: "The airport was attacked by a terrorist and hour after I left to Skopje. I know the airline has nothing to do with it but they should pressure the airport to have more safety for the passengers or find an airport in another country that is safer like Macedonia or Bulgary. Just as a temporary thing while things become safer in Turkey. In other words, only stop in Turkey for people who is flying to that country. Connecting flights should stop somewhere else."

Pros: "Food was good, airplane was newer than expected (nearly brand new, from the look) and the movie selection was excellent - and it was all free."
Cons: "More legroom would be nice. Boarding was a bit delayed for no visible reason."

Pros: "Every thing was perfect and the service too"
Cons: "The only problem is I didn't one of my luggage on time after 3 days I was upset and made"

Pros: "* Two suitcases * Vegetarian-Indian food was amazing! * You get a little pack with socks, slippers, tooth brush, eye cover. It is great!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room. When pushing the chair back, the cushion moves forward. Not the best for 6 feet and up people"

Pros: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "Thats awesome"
Cons: "All personel it was good."

Cons: "Terible transit info. No information / custmoer service help at all in Istambul. Rude and unwilling to help airport employees! Gate changet without notice/ almost lost transit flight.. Turkis airline crew did not come by during flight until breakfast. Sooo thirsty...."

Pros: "The service, food, and in flight entertainment were great. The leg room in coach was on par with other major carriers that I have flown transatlantic. The layover in Istanbul was pleasant (go to Staarbucks for free wifi). And I saved $500 over the price of other flights. I'd definitely take Turkish Airlines again, and maybe even arrange for a longer layover to be able to see Istanbul."

Pros: "First of all, the food is fantastic is you are not a meat and potatos (or big mac) kind of person. My original flight left late due to a hold up in security in Chicago. Turkish Air was very responsive and easy to work with when I missed my connector in Istanbul. Friendly crew. Clean jet. Will definitely use them agian."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The seat was hard for a long trip"

Pros: "I have traveled a lot during my life. The flight crew on this flight was the best I have ever seen."

Pros: "The food, the crew, the beverages, the entertainment and the level of cleanliness were all excellent. On time departure on both segments."

Cons: "Nothing! Everything was great"

Pros: "Nothing whatsoever."
Cons: "Worst customer expireince ever. I was making a short trip to visit my very sick mother. Turkish Airline changed my connection time without notifying me such that I had 5 min left for my cooection in stambul. They gave me no other option and blamed this on Kayak and kayak blamed it on the Airline leaving me with no options. I had to stay in Birlin at my own expense. Complaint filed with Turkish airline resulted in nothing. I made several calls for update and only repose I got was we will send an email to the complaint dept. and you will here in 24 hours. This has been going on for over 5 days with no contect, update or resolution. Once back in the US, I plane to file a formal complaint with FAA and more. DO NOT take this airline. They are worst airline I have ever used and will never use it again."

Pros: "I liked everything, from check in to the end of my trip!"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike!"

Pros: "Friendly crew and clean aircraft."
Cons: "I was traveling with two family members with wheelchairs and gate transfer at IST was a nightmare. It was very slow, but finally we were at the right gate. Handicapped access must be improved at the IST airport."

Pros: "Wonderful flight with spacious seats."

Pros: "Literally everything else. I was actually unsure if i had gotten bumped up to business class or the standards they have for seating, food, and everything was just really high"
Cons: "When I arrived at my final destination, Barcelona. Turkish did not have my luggage. I was convinced that they had lost it or somebody stole it. A day later they texted me and told me that they had my luggage and delivered it. I would have loved to gotten it without delay but I did get my luggage back so that's super nice!"

Pros: "Everything was amazing. The crew was great! The customer service was even better!"
Cons: "I was tired and fell asleep instead of watching more movies :)"

Cons: "worst service ever on arrival at Istanbul airport. we were lead through stairways from flight rather than terminal. It was same with departing for Mumbai. we carried our handbags and left to go through stairways. I won't recommend anyone for this flight."

Pros: "Attention on the counter and at the boarding gate were excellent"
Cons: "The in flight entertainment system was broken, they changed me seats however that one wouldn't lean, after that went back to the original seat.

The food was wonderful. The service was wonderful. The flight left on time and arrived early. The seat was comfy. Really nice flight."

But until then, I had attendants who were telling us to try things and then they'd leave and not come back to check up and follow through, which left us constantly trying to find someone...one time our call light was on for 20 minutes before anyone attended to us. In addition, the bathrooms were very dirty. The breakfast was a really bad muffin that I couldn't eat."

Pros: "Service and food were excellent."
Cons: "Every seat had headphones, but the plug didn't fit the available jack. If we hadn't brought our own earbuds it would have been 9 hours of silence."

Pros: "crew was helpful, seats comfortable, leg space good, entertainment good. a good flight without incident. boarding and getting off plane went smoothly."

Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Lots of movies."

Pros: "Timely distribution of meals/drinks, uncommonly quick boarding and ... unboarding. I travel with a musical instrument and some airlines want to check it and some even insist on checking it, even though there is always plenty of room. This was a completely full flight and no one even mentioned the possibility of checking it; they put me in an early boarding line and put it in a closet. The way they handle this for myself and the other passenger with an instrument made our day, as well as making boarding smoother forbus and everyone else. Really excellent job on that!"

Pros: "Pretty smooth flight"
Cons: "Entertainment options weren't great"

Pros: "Attentive, friendly staff on flight. Choice of meals, good food and drink. Plenty of restrooms in economy. Good overheard and under seat storage. Information over the speaker system was shared in German, English, and sometimes French. Individual TV screen was nice. Good smooth flight. Boarding and deboarding were painless, even in economy."
Cons: "Economy seats a little too close together for a long flight. However, economy seating was comfortable. If possible, sharing information about where to locate customs in the arrival airport, would be a nice addition."

Cons: "Flight delayed and 6 hours of additional travel"
