I asked about an empty row while checking in and getting a seat assignment, and got one! It allowed great sleep on the 16 hour flight

I asked about an empty row while checking in and getting a seat assignment, and got one! It allowed great sleep on the 16 hour flight

There was not enough of one option for the lunch served in Business Class. Big disappointment. Meal should be served by soliciting the choices of the passenger in order. Passenger should not have to ask for the soup and starters to get them!!! So better training.

Breakfast should be more real not frozen & heated stuff Lunch & dinner were also terrible. Seats were very cramped to say the least. Doesn't deserve the rating it gets

Poor boarding. Missed connecting flight. Had to stay in airport for 7 extra hours. Meal was provided but no accommodation provided and no lay flat seats. Would have been satisfied if a place to stay were provided for

It’s difficult to understand whether it is quatar airlines or Indigo Airlines

Food

Cancelled flight at the last minute, tried to sell the same ticket for triple the price.. very poor service

Qatar airways Customer service is terrible in some countries especially in Iraq, very unprofessional, helpless, and very rude!

They did not let my uncle fly

Cons: "My flight time was changed but I didn’t receive any email regarding the change of the flight"
Pros: "The crew was really nice and very attentive."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional! Seat was comfortable and extra seat not occupied next to me giving me extra elbow room also in addition to sufficient leg room."
Cons: "I would have a few suggestions but it would rise the price of ticket significantly. We got what we paid for."
Pros: "The service is really good. The only downside is that you have to be in Doha. But it’s always nice to leave Doha."
Cons: "The push button entertainment system doesn’t work well. You have to keep pressing buttons to make a movie play. And by pressing buttons, I mean, you have to hit the screen and wake up the person whose head is on the other side of the headrest."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "The customer service from Qatar Airways. No one communicates and it was very frustrating to deal with."
Pros: "crew was nice and helpful"

Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Excellent friendly service"
Pros: "timeliness"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "I am taking Qatar on all international travels when possible."
Pros: "Check-in was a breeze; considering this being an internationaly travel, baggage check-in process was fast and easy. Was in and out in about 5 minutes. Goodie bag was a good idea; the goodie bag contains an eye mask, mini tooth brush, paste, hand cream, etc. These all were great idea and definitely helpful. However this is ruined by the tooth paste. It was a tiny tooth paste, fair enough but the opening is sealed tight w/o a way to easily pry open. This was a total bad idea of packaging. Flight tips were also good idea and informational."
Cons: "Atlanta to Doha was about 14 hours flight. The seats were cramped and narrow (no side support) Seat cushion has been stripped down to bare minimum, so effectively you may not feel much of a cushion. Cramped legroom Seats felt like junk and I had started having leg cramps after few hours. This so disappointing for a premier airline like Qatar. Overall a very uncomfortable ride."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "the trip coming and going from Kuwait was very pleasant"
Cons: "It's been more than 50 hours and I still haven't received both of my checked in luggage"
Pros: "Clean. Friendly staff. Good food. Good entertainment."
Cons: "Small cramped seats."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"
Pros: "Excellent Service"
Cons: "We were packed like sardines, it was very uncomfortable. And, by the time they got to me, they were out of the fish I wanted for my meal."
Pros: "The flight was not full so there was room to stretch. And the crew was more friendly because they were not overwelmed."
Pros: "Crew was great. Very helpful and caring"
Cons: "Flying in and out of Doha and being marked for yet another deep search was so frustrating"
Pros: "Flight was great, best over seas flight I've ever had!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that we had a 10 hour layover in Qatar....and it was when the city was closed down. So there was nothing for my new husband and I to do. I wish that the airline would have given us more direction and help. Or have us a room for the night"
Cons: "The airport did not have air conditioning, which was very annoying given the temperature outside was 30C."
Cons: "Almost missed my flight. I had to take a bus, go through a transfer check, and then take a train to the gate, which got me there so late (even with running) that they were calling my name (and a few others) over the loud speaker."
Pros: "Nice and spacious aircraft."
Cons: "Some confusion on Hindu meal and vegetarian meals."
Pros: "The food and entertainment systems were good. The staff on the plane were pleasant."

Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and helpful, the flight left on time and even arrived early"
Cons: "Seat 10H, the transition from coach to business class could be designed a little better so the service carts don't hit the seat occupant when they move between cabins"
Pros: "Inflight services, food"
Cons: "Wheelchair services in India, person left in between and had to walk with pain in my foot for a distance."

Hire more pilots

Flight randomly cancelled last minute.. my choices were to fly out/land really late in the evening, or choose a different layover a day later. Inconvenient.

Everything was great except the hour delay.

Pros: "Seat was comfortable but not much room"
Cons: "Couldn’t understand a word the flight attendants said on the intercom system"
Pros: "This is a super aircraft with many amenities. The flight was smooth for the most part. Loved the movie and the classical music. The crew seemed to work well with each other and was very friendly."

Pros: "Courteous crew and smooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "the upgraded seats with the new headrests were great. the pilots & crew did a great job despite the more-than-average turbulence."
Cons: "lack of any entertainment options whatsoever (not necessary but always a nice-to-have). More importantly, the fact that I checked-in with seat 14 and ended-up, seemingly randomly, in seat 28 (the back of the plane) when I had SPECIFICALLY selected a seat in the FRONT section of the plane. That was particularly annoying, especially since the optics of the situation were such that I used miles to purchase the flight and got "screwed-over" with respect to my seat selection as if my ticket held less weight than other passengers..."
Cons: "Guests with no overhead luggage should be able to exit first."
Pros: "I'm very satisfied."
Cons: "No comemt"

Cons: "Old smelly plane. Bad entertainment options."
Pros: "Efficient and on time."
Cons: "I booked tickets well in advance but wasnt allowed to select seats at time of booking nor at 24 hour check in. This adds undue stress having to wait for an assignement at the gate."

Pros: "Very friendly flight crew."

Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed and no reason Food very bad"
Cons: "Better seat."
Pros: "We arrived in Athens eventually"
Cons: "People were made to wait outside in the cold airport bus for half an hour. The ground crew gave no explanation for the delay. After heavy protests, they let the waiting passengers back into the terminal. Supposedly the pilot was sick, but there was no communication at all from the airline about the cause of the delay or how long it would last."
Pros: "The crew on the airplane were fantastic. They arranged an aisle seat, which I requested upon checking in."
Cons: "I asked for an aisle seat and I was assured when I checked in that I have an aisle seat. But this was not correct. The crew on the airplane did their best to accommodate my request and they were successful. So the mistake was that of the crew in Berlin where I started my flight."
Pros: "Overall flight was good. The flight was on time, the boarding was smooth, the entertainment was excellent. I would like to thank crew for their work"

Cons: "Tight bathroom and no leg room."
Pros: "Variety of entertainment available"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "crew was great, food and beverage service was nice and plentiful, bathrooms were super clean, entertainment offering was great, head support bent perfectly to hold my head"
Cons: "1. CRAZY short time to transfer from TLV leg to SFO leg, 1.5 hours, and there were 5 different security lines even though we were always in the international travel area. Very stresfull. I'd much prefer an extra hour layover rather than run through airport. Why was I patted down at the gate??? 2. legroom was cramped, I was comfortable only because seat next to me was empty"
Pros: "The food, cabin crew behavior, entertainment systems were decent."
Cons: "1. Aweful legspace and overall space: I am 5'11'' and an average guy. It was like fitting myself into a cage. 2. Ground management is very bad. I felt that in both Boston and in Istanbul. They make people wait and the queue becomes long to adjust their delays. My flight from Istanbul to Dhaka was scheduled at 3:40 am. They started boarding passagers at around 3:10 am. Before that, they even bothered to show up at the boarding bridge, let alone informing people about their delay. The behavior of the groud crew was an embarrassment."
Pros: "Helpful crew, good food, comfortable seat."
Cons: "flight was delayed for 40 min."
Cons: "I like everything"
Cons: "seats a bit tight"
Pros: "Amazing service and food/drinks! Tons of movies. Overnight sleeping kit included."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Good entertainment selection. Good enough food."
Cons: "Not enough legroom. No need at all for those foot rests."
Pros: "Cabin crew was so kind and all the time asking for my needs"
Cons: "Airplane was a bit outdated and since the aircraft didnt had first class only business so the seating was un comfortable at all. By the way the aircraft is boeing 737 if im not mistaken."
Cons: "I had my flight from London to Istanbul delayed and because I had connection flight in Istanbul to Russia they had to change my flight for the next day . That ruined my whole holidays and I had to go all the way home from Gatwick airport and next morning going again to Heathrow airport. No transfer or taxi was provided and No single apology from the staff or company . Very disappointed with Turkish airlines !"
Pros: "Cabin crew good, professional Entertainment USB charger"
Cons: "Delay with no communication and no apologies Business seats not comfortable, limited space between seats"
Pros: "Very friendly and willing crew."
Cons: "Sound through headphones could be better. Hope to have free onboard internet one day!!"
Pros: "The crew's effort to comfort the passengers and the food served"
Cons: "Delay both before and after boarding"
Cons: "They was late for boarding The food is bad It's was my bad experience this travel"
Pros: "It's really cheap prices"
Cons: "But it's gives wrong books"
Pros: "Like my trip to Istanbul, I had no complaints. It was easy to make my transition to this flight and boarding was fine and once again the crew were friendly and welcoming. The short 2 1/2 hour flight went well."
Pros: "Cabin crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was mediocre. Seats were extremely crowded. Person in middle seat was large, causing over-crowding because he required more than his seat. I didn't check out the entertainment, as I didn't know how to use the electronics."
Pros: "הכל"
Cons: "שום דבר"
Pros: "Great entertainment, very friendly staff, decent quality planes , good beverages"
Cons: "below average food . Particularly for health conscious people."
Pros: "The seat"
Cons: "My light for an attendant was on for 20+ min, unanswered, while they were laughing loud behind thecurtain. 2) they announced that there will be a second round of food toward end of 11+ hrs fliht. It NEVER happened (::"
Pros: "Bathrooms need more attention from the crew because some passengers do not clean after use. I saw whole stack of seat cover papers laying on the floor through out the 13 hours of flight."
Pros: "Safety and comfort. The people were so nice."
Cons: "What I didn't like was when Turkish Airlines told us that in order to get free hotel and free transportation because our layover was 13+ hours we must buy Turkish entry visas which costs us $200.00. The visas should've been free because we were on transit."
Pros: "Service is excellent. Ground support was okay, not overly friendly."
Cons: "Istanbul airport has too many people not a lot of place to sit and rest. Very difficult to use the internet."
Pros: "What's to like about being in a 737 for over 6 hours?"
Cons: "Boarded from the front and rear of the plane. We were in the middle, so it was slow. 6+ hours in a 737 -- I feel like compacted trash. Crew avoids looking at you for fear that you'll talk to them. Worse airline I've been on for communicating. Food just isn't very good."
Cons: "Flight left late, bathroom was very dirty, and for some reason everyone around me got a meal, but I did not! I usually really like flying with Turkish, but this flight was disappointing."
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment options - movies, tv shows, games, newspapers, and some electronic games."
Cons: "Our flight backtracked over Europe - I think bcs all flights go through Istanbul - so our flights were longer than necessary even though cheaper... worth doing once bcs Istanbul looks pretty cool."
Pros: "Food was fine and entertainment system was great. Watched movies the whole way. We arrived 1 hour early."
Cons: "I was pulled aside for extra security. That was fine but there were a few other passengers that should have been pulled over for extra security besides me. It took an extra 20 minutes for me to board the plane because of this and when I arrived to my seat an Arab woman was sitting in my place and refused to move to the middle seat. She said she could not and would not sit next to a man who was sitting on the other side. If this is a problem from the start, there should be a way to choose a seat according to gender. The stewardess found me another place in front of this woman who kicked my seat the whole way. She even argued with the stewardess about putting her suitcase above her in the rack and security was almost called. There should be something included in the flight information program about being polite to other passengers."
Pros: "Todo estuvo bien. Me gusto mucho la aerolínea turkish! La recomiendo"
Pros: "In-flight service puts US-based airlines very much in the shade - welcome on board, attentiveness, food and drinks."
Cons: "Chaotic check-in process."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Crowded -/ entertainment equipment bad"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Everything overall"
Cons: "My lock on my checked luggage was broken and things were stolen, it is quite unfortunate not to be able to thrust an airline with one's personal items."
Cons: "3 hour late"
Cons: "NO INFORMATION and CHAOS at the airport in Istanbul!!"
Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "Wrong passangers were in the plane and we had to take down out baggages and we had a big delay"
Pros: "They fed you well, great entertainment for 11 hrs (didn't feel like it at all)."

Crew was helpful

Perfect flight.

Liked: Video entertainment options were generally good (sufficient choice of good, recent films). Could Have Been Better: 1. Both the SFO-Frankfurt and Frankfurt-Milan flights were significantly delayed. 2. Dinner was ok, although included no choice other than pasta (no meat). Quality of breakfast seemed very below average (just an unpalatable, bread-heavy vegetarian sandwich that many passengers seemed to discard after only a bite or two) 3. Crew performed their duties perfunctorily, but seemed a little stiff/impersonal. 4. Space between seat and seatback of the passenger in front a bit cramped.

All flights were on time

They cancelled my flight day before without any support to rebook.

Terrible service website

It was a really full flight. Our seats were changed at the last minute due to a plane change and I could no longer sit with my wife. Overall it was a bad experience. Inability to change our seats on line was a pain.

Flight was cancelled by airlines. KAYAK wants 200 airline fee! WORST. SERVICE. EVER!!

On my way from Denver to Munich the flight was delayed. The pilot himself said he couldn't explain the reason for the 1 hour delay. The delay resulted in almost everyone on the flight missing their connections, including me and my husband. No effort was made to help passengers with tight connections to get off the plane and to their gates faster. After an international flight, the last thing you want is an 8-hour layover where you've no choice but to remain awake and exhausted for an unhealthy amount of time. As a pitiful expression of apology, Lufthansa gave us a 10 euro voucher to use in the Munich airport--not even enough for a full, hot meal. Not to mention that checking in for both my flight to and from my destination city was very stressful because of an abundance of travelers and a clear understaffing on the airline's side. Even though I came two hours early to check in for my return flight, I only had ten minutes at the gate before it was boarded. The whole experience was rushed and stressful and inefficient. The worst part, though, was that one of my checked bags was returned to me with my clothes sticking out of it and some speciality cheese I bought entirely missing. I have also found it really difficult to get in touch with the Lufthansa customer service. They claim in emails with my flight information that I especially requested that my reservation number be withheld from me (I never requested this). The loss of this number has made it nearly impossible for me to register complaints without calling the airline and wasting hours of time. I would greatly reconsider ever booking with this airline again.

Lied saying it had already left when I could see the plane. And they were delayed.

It was awesome experience

The flight arrive to Sarajevo late and I was almost loosing the chance to catch my next flight to Dammam.

They canceled my flight yesterday only an hour for me to leave so am so disappointed by your airline I payed Covid test for $175 . Is hard to get hold of your customers service representative. Your Airline is a scammer

Pros: "With my little boy the seats were so uncomfortable cause of the engine. But the rest was great."
Cons: "Great crew this time."
Pros: "The seats were nice and the food was unusually good"
Cons: "More water brought to the seats. The landing was strange. The pilot pulled up on the first approach and when the second approach was completed the steering was stuck. They ultimately got the steering to work."
Pros: "The seating arrangements and baggage drop off were excellent, staff at check ins both sides were so helpful, especially at Heathrow airport, the young Asian man couldn't do enough for us, well pleased."
Cons: "Unfortunately we experienced a drop in standards when on board the first return flight , my daughter is autistic and would only have vegetarian meals, I made sure I requested this online well in advance, when I asked for vegetarian meal the flight attenda abruptly said that's all we have."
Pros: "Flight was delayed from LAX. No accommodation offered"
Cons: "Accommodation. They were kinda rude about the whole experience"
Cons: "Flight was 45 minutes late arriving, causing me to miss my connection to Lufthansa and forcing reroute of whole trip."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful and I love flying Lufthansa always:)."
Cons: "Onboard entertainment didn’t have good selection for me for such a long flight 4 different flights I took.And some of the touch screens didn’t work properly:(."
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Pros: "Using United with two flights a day out of Charlotte. A mistake. This is not the first time we had problems with United out of Charlotte. We missed our other flights and sate still in Washington and will lose a day of our vacation. United wouldn’t give us a voucher since it was supposedly weather related so I had to spend additional $100 for a room in DC."
Cons: "Do not use United out of Charlotte they have the worst customer service. With two flights a day you have no options. The other thing is there flight to Washington is so late you can’t switch airlines."
Pros: "Good staff and food."
Cons: "Flight was late and boarding was unorganized. When the person sitting in front of me moved their chair it hit my head and moved all my stuff, this should not happen. We should not feel our area moved because the person moved their seat in front of us."
Pros: "Food was good. Flight attendants were good."
Cons: "Luggage didn’t make it to my final destination . The fact my luggage was lost might have made my reviews of other areas more harsh than actuality"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Having to wait 3 hours to catch the next plane. Also Frankfurt airport takes too long to get from one place to another- it’s a maze and there are too many slow checkpoints for connecting flights."
Cons: "The seats are too close. When reclined it's not possible to get out."
Pros: "Punctuality, rapid boarding, nice to still have free snacks (choice of sandwich and full range of drunks)"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "My wife and I ran from our connection all the way from one end to the other and the crew could tell. They said after I stow my carry ons to corn to the back and get a drink and use the bathroom to cool down as we were just about to take off to taxi to the runway. The crew was absolutely great and the I. Flight entertainment and food was great. We just wish our luggage had made it back too. We are still waiting to see where our luggage is - if in Europe still or Dallas."
Cons: "I would say that other passengers had their kids behind us and they kept screaming and kicking our chairs. We told the woman to tell her kids to stop but all she said was “they are a child” when all they needed to do was just tell their kid to stop. Flight attendants saw and knew but I don’t know what they could do to help when they can’t help with bad parenting. I wish there was a clear way to upgrade to first class on a trip as it was difficult to find out how."
Pros: "The service was okay."
Cons: "Not enough space between the seats and the seats are very tough. So hard you can’t get comfortable"
Cons: "Bus shuttle to plane"
Pros: "very professional cabin crew"
Cons: "The overhead bins are way too small, and they ran out of the vegetarian dinner option. There are no longer air controls for each seat, and the plane was quite cold."
Pros: "The crew, again, was fabulous. Boarding, once the stuffy wait was over, went quickly. They attended to every request with smiles, gentle humor, and without delay. Nonstop movies were a great help on this second of two long legs, and it was really nice to have control over pausing, replaying portions, and jumping ahead past sex scenes. A 10-sec forward button like the back button would be very useful to skip nudity scenes, there were families around us! The trip was as comfortable as it could be, given close proximity of seats. Appreciated the pillows and blankets, and frequent water and drinks."
Cons: "Boarding was pretty terrible - no instructions, go left, give up the water bottle we JUST BOUGHT even though it was still unopened (it had to be "sealed", still no idea what that means because the seal wasn't broken), and the waiting room was very stuffy! Seemed we should have been able to get air...? Boarding went quickly, though, thankfully. Breakfast was pretty bad, one of us just skipped it once opened because it was so unappetizing. Would have liked movie ratings to appear in the descriptions to save the risk of getting started on lame shows."
Pros: "Nothing so far"
Cons: "incoming flight was delayed by 1 hour, ensuring that we missed our connecting flight from FRA to BOS. Lufthansa staff could have already booked me on a next flight instead of having me go to a service desk and NOT being able to get me on a flight - I had to make my own arrangements while calling the Lufthansa help line.... Not a big fan of the airline and will try to avoid as much as I can."
Pros: "Nothing special. Very early flight. Just wanted coffee.... Then sleep"
Pros: "Every things was perfect Thanks alot for the stuff who served during the flight they were very kind and helpful , this is the first time that I enjoyed the time being in this flight Thank you again"
Pros: "I loved that there were bathrooms downstairs so we didn't have to wait in the aisle. And there were enough bathrooms that the line moved quickly! They boarded families with young children first!"
Cons: "Could use better entertainment options. When the person in front of me reclined, there was very little room!"
Pros: "Convenient schedule, excellent service, good food, all-around positive experience."
Cons: "Flight delayed 5 hrs"
Pros: "Our attendents were clearly focused on our needs. Efficient and still very human and kind. A real treat."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, the crew very nice, the food good and many good movies to choose from."
Cons: "Could have used a few more snacks. But didn't bother to ask for any either."
Pros: "Unusually rough and crowded flight though that is hardly the fault of the airline."
Cons: "In economy class, there should either be adequate room for average sizes people at the least or seats should NOT be allowed to tilt back."
Pros: "Food snacks were awful."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed which caused us to miss our next flight. This was a huge inconvenience. When we were in line to get our hotel they did not help the people who were first in line. We were in the middle of the line, but got everything organized for us LAST."
Pros: "everything"
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding. Cheerful and helpful crew. Clean cabin. Everything was 100%."
Cons: "Nothing. I was a happy camper from beginning to end."
Cons: "The seat that I paid for was taken from me by Lufthansa without explanation or a refund."
Pros: "Lufthansa is one of few airlines in Europe with pure class and excellent service. Even in economy!"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Not much in the way of snacks"
Cons: "Why Lufthansa changed my flight connection to where I needed a visa!? So the police treat me like a criminal?!?"
Pros: "I usually fly Delta, and was amazed how much nicer Lufthansa is than Delta. I'll plan to use LH more often in the future."

Facilities for short connections.

Cons: "More snacks in between meals,"
Pros: "Seat was uncomfortable. There was nothing to like. In past I have traveled by KLM but this time it was worst."
Cons: "No proper food service. Even to the passenger of Amsterdam no dinner was served. No inflight service. It looks like domestic flight. I will think twice to travel by KLM. The check-in staff at counter was absolutely arrogant. Staff ar boarding gate was nice."
Pros: "The seat was a little uncomfortable but the crew were amazing."
Pros: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant but not attentive to detail. Bypassed is completely for snack and drink towards end of 9 hour flight!"
Cons: "Pay attention to passengers."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, friendly crew. Crew were conscious of recycling which I like a lot as there is so much waste on flight. Anything we can do to reduce waste is very welcome."
Cons: "Food wasn't very appetizing, pasta didn't have much flavor and I don't eat red meat so the other choice wasn't an option for me."
Pros: "quick/efficient boarding - good staff - good food - easy flight !"

Cons: "Nothing to say"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."
Pros: "Arrived early!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed disorganized."
Pros: "The crew were hardworking, responsive, conscientious and friendly"
Cons: "Really poor entertainment choices esp compared to my inbound AirFrance flight. Boarding was pretty disorganized and late."
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for 15 min resulting in passengers rushing to make their connecting flights.but staff kept passengers informed."
Cons: "Flight departing late."
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."
Pros: "Booked extra room seat which gave me good room for seating"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."
Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."
Cons: "It was announced I can choose between fish and chicken meal but when I requested for fish meal, I was told it’s finished. My seat was 21, and it surprised me. If something can be changed about that then your services would be much appreciated. Thank you."
Pros: "Crew good flight was fine apart from delay due to fog in Amsterdam but kept informed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather in Amsterdam area"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight"
Cons: "Flight was not on time and got to destination very very late pier management of aircrafts"
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."

Pros: "The sandwiches were simple yet just the right touch, on all four flights."
Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"
Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."
Pros: "Great crew service. Among the best ever."
Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"
Pros: "They were awesome."
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."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."
Pros: "Good and plenty of food available."
Cons: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."
