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."

Cons: "Too hot in the plane - was far too hot. too late the drink...after I eaten."

Cons: "We’ve been waiting for almost an hour now for the bags to come out. This is insane"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The entertainment system was wonderful."
Cons: "The crew was disorganized."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly, kind, and helpful."
Cons: "I couldn’t find any music that I liked - classical, soft rock, etc"

Cons: "Under 2 babies did not get enough milk They should have baby food items cereals, crackers or baby foods options"

Pros: "Everything- leg space, crew were great, relaxed atmosphere, great entertainment systems"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food, seat, entertainment"
Cons: "The staff though friendly was found to be unhelpful. I was literally carrying three bags and a toddler in my arms, and passed by at least three crew members. But none of them bothered helping me. Your measure of success is not just how well you treat your business class. That’s not being world class"

Pros: "nice crew, great service"

Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."

Pros: "i like the service of qa. its amazing."
Cons: "none at all"

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"

Pros: "Good service/Crew food quality and choice good."
Cons: "Need more choice of British TV Programmes rather than American"

Pros: "Ambiance"

Pros: "Modern plane and great crew."

Cons: "Food options- they start serving from front when they reach behind of plane food options exhausted. Pls ask ground catering to provide more non veg food The cabin temperature was close to freezing on the GOi-DOH international flight. No blankets provided when asked for blankets was told by the Indian air hostess on board the Qatar Airways flight that there is a shortage of blankets and they had to give children first Flight was at 3:50 am at this early tme pls provide blankets for all specially if it is freezing"

Pros: "Seating and comfort is great, as long as you are not seated next to a 'larger' person or a person with restricted mobility. Not a fault of Qatar airways, but probably the norm in most international flights in Economy. Food was the best of all the airlines I have flown, and the correct temperature as well."
Cons: "Seat width could be a little better, but this is the norm, I would assume across all airlines."

Pros: "Food was good and staff was friendly."
Cons: "Had to wait 3 hrs because of a system malfunction. And had a screaming toddler behind me the entire 13 hr ride. The headrest on the seats are very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Business class seats were comfortable."
Cons: "No WiFi, Poor list of shows"

Pros: "Entertainment is very good"
Cons: "boarding hall was very small, food was below average for Qatar Airways"

Pros: "The plane was virtually empty and the service was good."
Cons: "The plane from Doha to Dar was infinitely less nice than the plane from New York to Doha. It was borderline offensively unequal."

Pros: "Nothing to be liked on this Flight"
Cons: "Poor Service, they were even out of food."

Pros: "quick"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "We loved everything. From the moment we walked into the plane we were blown away. Food, air hostesses,flight, you name it was great."
Cons: "We didn't like that our return flight was changed to a different airline. Cathay Pacific. My wife didn't like the service at all and keep complaining and comparing it to Qatar."

Cons: "Although the loading Zone was given as Zone 1, boarding was chaotic because the fround crew was incredibly inefficient. The announcement was totally mumbled and badly managed, Why cant the boarding at Cochin be organised like queues for each zone so that the passengers do not crowd in a mad rush near the gate as if the fliht will leave without them. As in Doha have different seating area for different zones and the ground crew should be trained to be firm to allow only passengers with boarding."

Pros: "I had an exit seat"
Cons: "Service was only fair, no power outlets for a 15 hour flight. Seats too narrow. Only good options for every meal was chicken and vegetarian"

Pros: "Very comfortable wii sleeping compartment"

Cons: "Comfort"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "This review is for return travel from ATL to MAA (Chennai, India) and back. Route: ATL-DOH: about 14.5 hrs; DOH-MAA: about 4.5 hrs; Likes: 1. Baggage check-in process was simple and easy. 2. Meal preferences was good - I'm a vegetarian and on the onward journey forgot to specify the meal preference but the crew had enough inventory to meat the requirements. 3. Every seat was provided with a small plastic pouch/packet/goodie bag that consisted of a eye mask (very thoughtful), pair of sock, toothpaste+brush (very thoughtful), hand cream. This was very useful and effective. 4. Entertainment - options were good and current."
Cons: "Dislikes: 1. Online check-in wasnt easy; towards the end of the process, there is an option to email the boarding pass but this never worked. Not sure if this is something to do with the browser (tried with Firefox, Opera) 2. It would have been good, as part of the online check-in, if the users reminded to specify the meal preferences, etc. I forgot to specify the meal preferences but thankfully the crew had enough of what I wanted. 3. Take a relook at the packaging of the toothpaste tube in the goodie bag. It was sealed in such a way that it was difficult to open it w/o a sharp object. This should have been easier. 4. Seats were the worst part - poor legroom. Worst, the seat cushion is the worst. I think it was just a fabric over a metal seat with minimalist of cushion. ATL to DOH leg was the worst (and the longest leg of the trip). Unless you have open seats next to you it would be a back breaking and painful trip. Seat comfort wise, I would rate Qatar as the worst. Luckily on the return leg (DOH-ATL) next two seats to mine was empty, so was able to stretch and sleep well. DOH-MAA or MAA-DOH seating was little better (think its a older plane; newer planes have worst seats) 5. The website was damn slow while accessing from overseas. Even in the US, at times the website hangs-up, freezes or spins often. 6. Food was ok -dinner and lunch but minimalistic; I didnt see any specific breakfast menu or any coffee served separately (was part of beverage option during lunch or dinner) 7. There was no alert, communication, notification, reminder of upcoming trip via email or text, etc. Many airlines does this very often but Qatar was totally silent on it (they did have my email during checkin). Not sure why."

Pros: "The service and the food were amazing!"

Cons: "Checkin at Jakarta needs fine tuning. Checkin in started 30mins later than what the QR rep informed me an hr previously. QR lounge needs upgrading."

Pros: "If we had arrived on time everything would have been perfect. However I did not arrive in Johannesburg because a flight delay (even though our flight was set to let ontime) caused probably 40 people to miss their connections. To their credit, Qatar Airways did find accommodations for us and gave us food vouchers. Otherwise it'd be a zero rating."
Cons: "Boarding took far too long and caused us to be an hour late. Because of this, I am missing out on events scheduled in South Africa. This is very upsetting and it appears that Qatar Airways is too slow with boarding, there was no explanation given for why it took so incredibly long to board."

Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable as I didn't want to sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good. The member of flight crew, a Latvian lady, who looked after me onboard was a real star, very efficient but still had time to chat."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."

Cons: "On O-Hare Airport, Qatar Air Line's staff is very rod, I never recommend to anyone. Now if anyone ask from me then i refuse to buy Qatar Aiway ticket then they buy Emirate or other air line tickets"

Pros: "Qatar airlines was awesome! Comfy seat, great headrest, lots of entertainment options and decent food all on a very short flight. Would definitely fly this airline again!"

Pros: "Intertainment was very good"
Cons: "The hostess were not in profisional, they were very rush while giving the food the toilet was not clean"

Cons: "Other passengers pushing, coughing & sneezing without proper sanitary measures; dirty toilets. This reflects on the education level of passengers, not the crew, but it still makes flying into Jeddah on packed flights particularly miserable."

Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"

Pros: "Awesome staff, super delicious food. Missed the flight, but airlines covered stay in Hotel in Doha. So we hot extra vacation day In Qatar with nice food and stay in a country we have never been"
Cons: "We have missed connecting flight from Doha to Oslo because of bad weather and had to stay in Doha, Qatar for 16hours. But airline took care of all passengers, organized 5*hotel in heart of Doha with luxurious food in the hotel restaurant"

Cons: "Crowded flight, late departure."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "No food selection, USB ports didn't work, passenger who didn't want to sit in her assigned center seat created a fuss and I ended up voluntarily moving to another seat. Center seats are really tight, elbows are in the way of all passengers and if you are average height you have to turn your legs at angle to sit which infringes on other passengers' spaces. very uncomfortable. Aisle next to me is so small."

Pros: "It was the first time using Qatar Airways and I'll continue doing so in the future."

Cons: "There was no water in the flight's restrooms"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The plane was clean, the staff was very friendly and attentive, the price was right, the seats were comfortable, and they had a good selection of movies /entertainment. We would use Qatar again"

Pros: "Check in was easy"
Cons: "Sitting on plane 3 hours at HIA isn't fun due weather in KRT"

Pros: "On-time, Service, flight & Behavior, conduct."

Pros: "Friendly staff, new aircraft, great food"
Cons: "Just some help with hand luggage"

Cons: "WiFi down the entire flight, made worse by the crew continuously promising it was “about” to work. Wouldn’t recommend Emirates to any professionals traveling who rely on staying connected on such a long flight!"

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "There is for a 4 hours flight just a small snack - just like a local flight. Then there is no bedding at all, just a blanket. Very poor for a F-class ticket."

Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than an hour. No courtesy to inform passengers. The boarding took place and all passengers were crammed into the departure lounge with no place to sit for more than an hour!"

Pros: "Yes I like the services and then you will have good stuff for goods"

Pros: "Entertainment was exhaustive and entertaining"
Cons: "Service was very poor. They missed servicing drinks when I was watching movie. Didn’t ask me. There was NO air freshener sprayed in this long flight. Overall service was very poor especially on my side of service at 32F."

Pros: "Crew were rude and kept ignoring me"
Cons: "Crew member needs to be more friendly and accommodate when things go wrong"

Pros: "Emirates does it with class, consistently."
Cons: "Wanted some tomato juice, but they didn't have it..."

Pros: "Nothing as such"
Cons: "Crew are not polite and carry arrogance while talking to the passengers, especially in the economy cabin. The seats are narrow compared to other 777 300 ER flights"

Pros: "Good overall service."

Pros: "Service was excelleny"

Pros: "The crew was excellent and the food is very good. The portions were good and the drink selection is excellent."
Cons: "The seating room is poor for someone who is 6'2" tall. My wife had issues with her ankles swelling. When we tried to get a cold compress to put on them we never received it. We also asked for some fruit instead of the pizza snack and didn't receive it either. I know you don't have much control over passengers, but we had a two year old child in our seating area and it screamed and cried virtually the entire 14 hour flight. Very annoying."

Pros: "The seats with enough legs room"
Cons: "It was so difficult to find the restrooms. There were few of them in a big airport that made a long line and difficult for kids"

Pros: "The flight certainly lived up to its reputation as being one of the nicest airlines to fly, even in being in economy. Great service, great food, great on board entertainment."
Cons: "There was an incident prior to take off where a passenger in first class had to be removed from the plane. Though it’s certainly not the airlines fault that there was an issue with a passenger, they should’ve been a lot more transparent and gave us a lot more information on what exactly was going on other then “we need to go back to a special area to get this passenger off.” Couple that with the security checks to “make sure there is nothing on the plane that shouldn’t be” and very little explanation of what actually occurred, it made for a very stressful flight. Not knowing if this passenger had made any kind of threat against the plane, or safety of other passengers... etc, it was very hard to feel safe for the remainder of my trip being left in the dark as the incident occurred in first class."

Pros: "One of the best economy flights I've taken."

Pros: "It's time to check the competition."
Cons: "Emirates is (just) OK in a business class (never trier economy in Emirates), but I have a very strong feeling they should be much better. Cabine interior should be much better (it's old, seats are not full beds and are somehow narrow). Food offering should be improved (continental breakfast - what king of cost-cutting is that???). What is really good is in-flight entertaintement system. But you don't pay for a business class to watch movies, right?"

Cons: "Seats are less spacious for me since I’m 6 feet tall"

Pros: "Nothing much."
Cons: "There was no hotel reservation and I have to pay out of pocket. Why? I need a refund. You guys are responsible for that."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Always spicy food"

Pros: "Consistent service"
Cons: "Toilets not very clean towards the end of the flight"

Pros: "I loved the crew. Very helpful. Katarina was very helpfull"
Cons: "I sat next to the bathrooms"

Pros: "You give me exelent space behind the exit ..tnx"

Pros: "Loved the service. My flight was from NYC to Milan."
Cons: "There was not one thing."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No Leg room Bad food Delayed flight"

Pros: "The staff & the service"
Cons: "The entertainment set up was dated and malfunctioning"

Cons: "Broken seat, little leg room...A380 is a much better plane than the airbus."

Cons: "The crew was too tough was us not to hit helpful at all ."

Pros: "Good Food, I find it amazing that the Jeddah flights have better quality food than many other sectors.."
Cons: "No more A380 in this sector, which is a shame."

Cons: "Older version of the Boeing 777"

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Late take off"

Pros: "Comfortable seat Hostesses were professional and very service oriented - not forgetting your request. Service with a smile Very sooth flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The overall service was excellent as the flight left on time and the flight attendants were attentive. The food onboard was perhaps the best quality I have ever had on a flight."

Pros: "The food and entertainment were good and the seats were relatively comfortable. And they provide headphones but..."
Cons: "The crew didn't warn us that they would be collecting the Emirates provided headphones during their final "prepare for landing" check of the cabin... so I was near the end of a movie and sans headphones! WTF? And because the fasten seat belt sign was on in preparation for landing, I couldn't fish through my carry on in the overhead compartment to find the ones I'd brought. Thats SUPER sh*tty to your customers. Just not ok!"

Pros: "First time on Emirates. Love the entertainment system and the staff is friendly and incredibly professional. Will travel Emirates whenever I can if I am traveling internationally."

Pros: "Coiner person was very courteous and very accommodating."
Cons: "The food selections are the same for years now."

Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Seat was broken, the crew was unresponsive to calls, food was expired/bad. Seating was terribly uncomfortable because it was broken. I couldn't recline and the crew didn't really help. I love Emirates and I always fly Emirates. So this was an exception and very disappointing."

Pros: "Flights were booked back in May and Emirates did not make major schedule changes"
Cons: "Consistently late departures. Did not keep passengers informed about updated departure times. After serving the food, it took more than one hour to take the leftovers away. During the flight from Dubai -Chicago, hot beverages were served 1.5 hours after the food was served. Crew was not friendly at all. During the Chicago-Dubai flight a crew member basically yelled at passengers "open the windows" and I had to tell him to "ask nicely please). Emirates comes nowhere close to Singapore, Thai, or Turkish in terms of service."

Pros: "Overall it's a good airline. Economy is fairly comfortable, great entertainment options, decent food, and the staff is exceptional."
Cons: "Emirates baggage on board policy is a bit strict compared to most of the other Asian and American flights I've been on. Usually I'm allowed a regular carry-on and a personal item (i.e., a small backpack), but Emirates was very strict on the personal items. Personal items are limited to only Business and First Class passengers. Also, they were extremely strict about the size of my carry-on. As someone who has been on 20+ flights in this year alone, few of them being budget airlines (which are generally very strict), I had no issues whatsoever with the size of my carry-on until I flew with Emirates."

Cons: "Disorganized boarding process. Old plane. Bad inflight system with old fashioned screens with poor visibility."

Pros: "Crew is very accommodating and nice. Boarding is smooth."
Cons: "Food is horrible and the plane is unclean. Bathrooms need to be cleaned often on a 15 hour flight."

Pros: "Nothing !"
Cons: "Security staff did not know English and asking ladies passengers to remove bangles which was impossible."

Pros: "Flight staff good attitude, condition of airplane"
Cons: "On the 15 hour flight Dubai to LAX, Only one hot meal was served, plus later, a sandwich. I'm a thin girl and barely found the food sufficient - imagine the men!"

Cons: "We had selected row 47 for our seats and this seat allocation was confirmed on our itinerary. However, at check in time, the airline arbitrarily changed our seats to row 83 without even letting us know. This is unfair and wrong. Wheelchair was booked but not provided . I think this is because of your staff please check it . It seems that it was sold"

Pros: "great plane and service, and so many movies"
Cons: "the passenger next to me had no sense of personal space or boundary, head on my shoulder while sleeping, foot in front of my chair, etc. and no english; gave the flight attendants a hard time too"

Cons: "The same comment as above."

Pros: "Everything was great. Crews were nice and helpful. Flight was early which was very helpful. Our luggage # was displayed on our screen efficiently."

Pros: "It was terrible"
Cons: "Because l have to wait for 22 hours and they let me pay for my own visa and hotel when l arrived in dubai"

Cons: "I missing my flight than they dosnt give me another flight. They told me we can't do nothing you must buy new one it was 990$ usually if I miss my flight I have just to buy a little more for next trip"

Pros: "From Los Angeles to Dubai there was Airbus A380 and that was amazing with a lot of fun available like free wifi hundreds of movies etc"
Cons: "I like rvery thing so I can't say any thing every thing was good"

Cons: "They made me check my hand luggage, did not pay attention to what airline I would get on my connection flight, neither got my warnings about it. They sent my bag directly to my destination but the other airline wouldn't pick up."

Cons: "I missed it"

Cons: "The airport is not proper for travels , you need at least 2 hours to finish from the long lines and finding your way to the right location before the immigration and run to the gate if you are in good shape minimum from 10 to 15 minutes"

Pros: "After we missed our flight, we were provided with terrible customer service."
Cons: "We were told to go to the wrong gate. After we missed our flight, we were charged 880 USD to book for the identical flight the following day. We were taken around in circles inside the airport. Absolutely unacceptable. Would not recommend."

Pros: "Staff is the best, very accommodating."
Cons: "It was an old plane so not much comfort in business class"

Cons: "Free wifi"

Pros: "My worst journey."

Pros: "Yes.The crew was amazing"
Cons: "To have a variety of foodstuffs especially the soft drinks. Hot Tea wasn't really hot.Just warm."

Pros: "Excellent staff."
Cons: "Very cramped, even for economy."

Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Slow boarding, bad entertainment screen which should be replaced"

Pros: "It was so smooth. Crew was so nice. Food was delicious. Airplane was so comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Connecting flight wss unreasonably late and they lied about luggage being loaded onto the flight. One of the bags is completely missing in the system. Waste of time and too much trouble"

Pros: "TK Lounge in Istanbul"
Cons: "Business Class boarding process is not well setup. I expect that If you are paying significantly more for a business class, you would have priority boarding at least ... this didn't happen. We were asked to be there at the gate 1 hr before the flight of which 40 mins were spent just waiting in a room packed with people."

Pros: "i dont like anything"
Cons: "i dont like anything"

Pros: "Boarding staff were very kind The flight took off on time"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Cabin temperature was very cold"

Cons: "Landing was not so good."

Cons: "The seat at the back of the plane does not go down"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food was great. The seats were soft and there was enough legroom."
Cons: "We were stuck on an aisle where the seats don't adjust on one of the flights, but it was a relatively short flight. The boarding process was a little disorganized, but we were able to get on the plane quickly. The worst part was the home airport. I don't know how much control Turkish airlines has over that airport, but the bathrooms we're absolutely disgusting."

Cons: "On our longest flight, we were put in a cramped plane with no entertainment systems. It's sad to see a company that has such potential blowing it with these sort of cost saving/ customer losing choices. Please upgrade your fleet to stay competitive with your surrounding competition!"

Cons: "They have canceled my flight even though I have booked it long time ago. They climed its because they have overbooked the flight. Crew was rude and short tempered, didn't understand the urgency of having to go to that flight"

Cons: "had to go 6 times through securety check, had to get out of the airport, and then a bus had to take all the passangers to another terminal. it seemed as the airport staff was not aware that there is a connection flight."

Cons: "Lost my baggage and didn’t get any clear answer about it"

Pros: "Good food, comfortable seat, good timing."
Cons: "Some confusion amongst passengers about their seating."

Cons: "Lost my luggage"

Pros: "The food is great and so is the entertainment system."
Cons: "Unfortunately the aircon didn't work properly before takeoff in Singapore. The plane only cooled down when it was in the air."

Pros: "Nothing, sorry!"
Cons: "The middle seat that I got. The first 30min the plane was super hot plus it was very hot outside. When I boarded the plane, I asked if there were any exit row seats open. I was told no. I sat down 5 rows or so behind the exit. 15 min later the attendant started moving children from the exit rows to different seats. I raised my hand to be placed in the exit row but was ignored. The flight attendants were slow and rude. I asked for two white wines with my food, and was looked at with disgust. I was told that I can have one, and when I finished it, I could have the second one. I said ok. Well 30 MINUTES later I touch the attendant button and no one came. Finally after 5 min someone came to take my order. She quickly came back and said they were out of wine. This was a very disappointing flight."

Pros: "Awesome service, comfy business cabin!"
Cons: "Boarding in Istanbul and Tel Aviv was chaotic, no business class boarding. Checking laptop in Istanbul was inconvenient. Lounge Istanbul was awesome however way too crowded to fully take advantage of it. Also should control people and what they takfor food. The lines were long and people would literally pile their plates with massive amounts of food, take it to their seat then leave it. Fix the lockers and add more, they are a wonderful asset but I was not able to take advantage of. Consider limiting access to manage crowds."

Pros: "Early arrival by full 30 minutes--great."
Cons: "Crying babies, but not airline's fault."

Pros: "The quality of service on Turkish Airlines is really good. I appreciated the friendly and pleasant attitude of all the flight attendants that I came in contact with during the flight."
Cons: "It was such a long trip, a little more than 12 hours and my legs get really stiff after sitting for long periods of time. That is not the fault of the airline, just something I have to deal with after having both knee joints replaced."

Cons: "Flight was canceled and I missed all subsequent connections"

Pros: "The crew was great. Flight normal, food and drinks good."
Cons: "Boarding took a little longer and was delayed without them giving us a reason for it."

Pros: "Foods are good"
Cons: "Seats legroom"

Pros: "Customer service and professionalism of crew was outstanding. It felt like how it USED to be on other airlines, and even better! The food service was great, and I appreciated the little necessities bag. The travel experience was a positive part of our trip, instead of the usual exhausting drudgery of traveling very far distances."
Cons: "The bathroom did get a little smelly, and, as a tall person, the leg room was very tight when people put their seats back."

Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "every other thing 1 the host ladies are not pilot and were in my back long before the pilot speak of it like closing the TV or the seats"

Pros: "The crew was mostly kind and the airplane was comphy when no one was sitting by my side. Excellent entertainment!!!"
Cons: "Couldn't find where I should order unusual food. Turkish web is not effective for travelers."

Cons: "Small chairs and no entertainment system"

Cons: "Food choices should have been better..."

Pros: "The ride was comfortable and smooth. I loved the Turkish Air lounge in Istanbul and also the movie screen was easy to use, although there was a problem with the screen on my flight from Istanbul to Hong Kong."
Cons: "The food was good but some of the appetizers were not that good. The red wine was not so good, tasted cheap."

Pros: "I liked everything about the flight. Smoth flight good cabine crew and great service from stuardes"
Cons: "Everything was good no reason not to like turkish airlines. I enjoy everytime i travel from kabul to istambul and from istanbul to prishtina and vise versa"

Cons: "Due to a family emergency I was forced to change my flight to a later date and they did a terrible job handling. Would not allow me to change and charged me enormous change fees. I will never fly Turkish airlines again."

Cons: "Staff was a bit rude"

Pros: "I liked the crew"
Cons: "The security at the Turkish airport. There were very long lines, people pushing each other, screaming. Security put some extra stamps for particular people randomly. There were three women from the same country with the same type of passport who one of them happened to be pregnant. They put extra stamp on her passport. When I asked one of the security why her he said it was random and it was American procedure. The woman started screaming after she was checked twice more and they started to use a detector on her belly. It was all crazy when another family was checked and the security decided that the three kids were okay but the parents weren't. The security told the parents to separate themselves from the kids for double checking. The father started screaming as well. It was all horrible."

Cons: "Our flight was canceled and we lost an entire day of our vacation (apartment rental, car rental, etc). Before leaving to Istanbul when we were in New York we asked if they would reroute our flights from New York City to Naples, Italy since the terrorist attack occurred in Istanbul causing the airport to be shut down. We were reassured that there would be no problems and we would be rerouted once we landed in Turkey, and lo and behold our flights were canceled. We had to spend the day in Turkey, pay for our own food, and pay for the visa €30 per person. This all could have been avoided had they rerouted our flights to another city."

Pros: "Food."
Cons: "Lousy boarding, we were standing on the bus for a long time, in front of the not ready airplane. Entertainment was bad, the sound plugs didn't work properly, the movies kept breaking off. Not a standard we were expecting at all :("

Pros: "Timing, attention, discipline and overall the neatness."

Cons: "Delays are problematic. Passengers should be warned what sits fall on emergency exists, as these are uncomfortable. The Istanbul airport is clearly overcapacity."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The absolute worst airline we have ever flown with. Will never fly with them again."

Cons: "Neverrrrr againnnnn!!!!!!!with Turkish airlines"

Cons: "Boarding of all economy passengers was done on first come and stand in line, first served basis with no zone separation. This caused aisle congestion. I was randomly asked to check in my standard size carry one although many passengers with larger bags were allowed to take them with them. Overall there was a lack of planned approach."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Food quality, crew attitude, seats and entertainment ."

Pros: "The food was excellent, and the crew was nice"
Cons: "There was a delay on the boarding and they didn't provide a reason."

Pros: "There were many comforts to the plane even in economy."
Cons: "There is little leg room in economy for someone over 5’11”"

Pros: "This was our return flight back to the US much better then going to Europe!"
Cons: "The only thing i wish all airlines would consider is to give us regular folks more room(space) not just the rich people in business or first class! On a 10+hr flight it is well needed!"

Pros: "On time, onwith excellent care by staff"
Cons: "The long walk on the airport for connecting flight"

Pros: "Too cramped for a 10 hour flight"
Cons: "Same as above"

Cons: "The seating was very close. Not enough room to sleep comfortably."

Cons: "Connection very very tight and stressful Had to run to connecting flight and just made it by <1 minute"

Cons: "Boarding was a zoo as the system was down -not very organized either. There was one crew member who was extremely rude and even as people boarded by her section did not greet people. Skipped a few rows with drinks and then told them there was no time to bring even a glass of water. Fortunately another crew member (who we also asked as they went by) brought water to those she had skipped who wanted it. My TV monitor was not working. Aging planes - need a thorough cleaning. The announcements were garbled and very difficult to hear."

Pros: "Crew. Courteous, engaging and supportive, of-course with a smile."
Cons: "Nothing on this flight"

Cons: "WiFi didn’t work most of flight and when it did required payment."

Pros: "Great business class seats. Plenty of room and comfortable."

Pros: "I arrived at my destination completely unstressed."
Cons: "Security checks, but this is unavoidable"

Pros: "The temperature was moderate, not as cold as ususl. Stewards were very nice."
Cons: "Our seats were at the very back and the flight was quite bumpy at times. It left a bit late due to passengers not showing up and having to remove luggage. They wouldn't allow my husband to use his backpack as a personal item he had to count it as a carryon despite others having more carryon items."

Pros: "food, entertainment and most of the crew was great"
Cons: "Early boarding and then got yelled at for showing up 3min after official boarding time on ticket. no air vents for each seat. massive heat in airplane while waiting for taxiing"

Pros: "Efficient crew. Quick service, quick flight."
Cons: "No negatives."

Cons: "Same as above"

Cons: "entertainment was not working! the flight to Frankfurt was late and I missed the connection to rome! crew told me to run for the connection but ad the gate they told me they had already put me on a later flight! no need to run like crazy across the airport if they had me already booked me on a later flight! missed my train connection in rome to bari...asked the airport lufthansa rep. to put me on a flight to bari but they told me they couldn't do it although there was a flight available!"

Pros: "check in process, documentation check process and the process in Dammam to collect the baggage"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "WiFi on long flight from Detroit to Frankfurt"

Pros: "Service is outstanding in economy and puts US airlines to shame. Lufthansa is the best way to fly to Europe."
Cons: "Clearing passport control in Frankfurt is very slow. The setup is not very good for a world class airport. You need to give yourself at least an hour."

Pros: "Tans it time to Amman is too long and that is the most distressing"

Pros: "Comfortalble trip"
Cons: "Boarding delay"

Cons: "Not well organized and food is unhealthy"

Pros: "The Lufthansa flight and crew were fantastic. Nice plane with amenities. It was far better than our return flight on Air Canada."
Cons: "My return on Air Canada."

Cons: "Being asked, when other passengers were around me, how much money I cary with me. This is a dangerous thing. I don't know whom I travel with, and I felt at risk knowing that other people know how much cash I have with me. Plus, the money were counted on the passageway to the plane, with people walking by. I strongly believe that you should change the method you ask and check passengers for cash. I heard other details that I shouldn't hear from another women who was also checked. What I ask is PRIVACY."

Cons: "Lufthansa sharing code with United wasn't pleasant at all."

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Boarding process was unclear."

Pros: "The flight from DTW to FRA was made that much better by a particular flight attendant who actually remembered it was my first time flying. She checked with me personally as we were disembarking in FRA to see how my flight was. I unfortunately did not catch her name, but she was the highlight of the flight. If I fly again, I will definitely fly Lufthansa for flight crew like her. I skipped the evening meal as I was feeling unwell, but I had the breakfast. The fresh fruit, and especially the watermelon was delicious. There just wasn't enough of it."
Cons: "The seat cushion was rather stiff and made the 8-hour-long flight just a tad uncomfortable."

Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Seating"

Pros: "The food was good and the crew members were very friendly and caring."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by about 2 hours but we still made it to Germany with enough time to catch the Moscow flight and check out the duty free stores."

Cons: "Poor cabin crew behavior. Gate agent kind of reprimanded passengers to carry only one bag to cabin almost shouting at people in Frankfurt."

Pros: "The live streaming of the NBA finals game on the flight was excellent."
Cons: "The check in process was incredibly inefficient. I have never had to wait so long to check in my bags. The attendants were chatting and laughing while not helping customers and customers were unfairly taken from the middle of the line to jump the queue."

Pros: "Boarding process, food and entertainment were excellent."
Cons: "Seats seemed a little small, even for economy."

Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Comfort"

Very good job from pilots. Leg room in economy - I was positively surprised, very decent leg room! Thank you for providing it."

Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."

Cons: "Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."

Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"

Pros: "Boarding was quick, Flight on time....just a regular service and plane"
Cons: "Terminal 3 Manchester is not worth staying longer then necessary, loud music, crowded....old"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"

Pros: "Very friendly staff"

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Warm plane with happy staff."
Cons: "Maybe a second sandwich option for food, not everyone likes cheese."

Pros: "Airlines issue"
Cons: "Profiling certain customers"

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: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"

Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."

Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."

Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"

Cons: "Service"

Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."

Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."

Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"

Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliablity."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."

Pros: "Same as above"

Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"

Pros: "Loads of leg room"
Cons: "Loved everything"

Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."

Pros: "I have no complaints about the air crew. They where pleasant and attentive. Plenty of free entertainment. The food was good."
Cons: "my only complaint is the USB ports didn't work on any of the chairs that me and my family where assigned to."

Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed the plane didn't have wifi / USB"

Pros: "Having exit aisle made a huge difference in comfort Crew were EXCELLENT"
Cons: "Food was not very good Tasteless and rubbery"

Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"

Pros: "Almost missed flight due to line at customs and having to pick up suitcase and check in again, they did wait for me though"

Pros: "Flights left on time, arrived ahead of time. Seats comfortable. Baggage arrived quickly. No charge for wine/beer, although I do not imbibe when flying long distance. Food ok for airline food."
Cons: "Unable to pick seats in advance,, were assigned seats that did not recline for 11 hour flight. One bathroom not functioning. Very limited movie choices for inflight entertainment. Seat belts much shorter than other airlines, so very confining, unable to loosen to relax in any position other than sitting straight in seat. In Rome had to check in & go through security at Terminal 5 then get bussed to Terminal 3. Only airport where we had to take out all electronics, including converter plugs, headphones, etc, place in a flimsy clear plastic bag ( that broke ) to go through security. Line to check bags pretty slow for number of passengers. Glad we had plenty of time."
