Airline reviews

Pros: "The coach seats were larger than seats for domestic flights. The windows were dimmable for optimal lighting."
Cons: "The armrests did not go up all the way, which made it difficult to maximize comfort with my travel partner."

Pros: "I didn’t get on this flight. Due to the departure at LAX. It would’ve been nice to know that this was a possibility before the arrival. Although the ladies at Japan Airlines were able to get me on a later flight, it almost didn’t happen. But the kept making calls to help me. I’m very thankful they were able to get me on ANA flight at 8pm."
Cons: "Communication"

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "I really got a good deal on my trip's cost, and for the price, all the comforts of a top-quality airline were there. I especially appreciate how helpful and friendly the airline staff were."
Cons: "The outbound flight still had the exact same movie selection as the inbound flight had, even though they were six weeks apart for my trip. I really feel like the movie selection should be changed every month (or even more frequently than that), as I ran out of films to watch."

Pros: "The meals were an experience in itself. It felt like I was at a 5 star restaurant."
Cons: "The seat cushions in economy class could be softer. My rear end was feeling it after the long 11 hour flight from Chicago to Tokyo."

Cons: "PA announcements could have been louder. I also had difficulty understanding when I could hear the English words."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The foods could be better not up to the standard of EVA air on economy class"

Pros: "Easily upgrade to premium economy class"
Cons: "Some staff lack of basic english"

Cons: "Tickets were in the wrong name and the company that issued them refused to fix the problem. I ended up buying a second ticket directly from the airlines."

Pros: "Very friendly and polite. Very helpful and on time."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and polite, seats are some of the most comfortable of any airline I've flown (particularly compared to the US domestics), and entertainment is solid (although the English movie selection was not that large). I would definitely recommend JAL to others."
Cons: "The food was not to my liking (i.e., all Japanese style, but not necessarily types that appeal more to Westerners) but it was palatable."

Pros: "This airline is efficient, polite, and has a great business class product. Seats are large and open. Easy to move into different positions. Tv is in readable large and clear with a mini screen in the remote. The food was outstanding. Waygu beef medium rare. Washrooms are the cleanest in the sky. Definite repeat!"

Pros: "Dinner (coach) was pretty good. Earphone, screen for entertainment are very nice. I liked the charging slots for each seat. Crew is polite and friendly."
Cons: "The second meal (light lunch, i think) had dry shredded chicken."

Pros: "Check in was fast, the staff was helpful and nice. Simple streamlined process"
Cons: "The website was pretty bad functionality wise. It took me 2 hours and a couple phone calls to be able to online check in for my flight in advance. Then during my trip I was trying to look at what costs and fees would be associated with changing my flight and extending the trip. The website was hard to navigate and offered very little information"

Pros: "The food"

Pros: "JAL has always provided exceptional value for money and top notch service."
Cons: "Have taken several JAL flight the last 1 year and this flight was significantly worse than the last few. Especially the meals."

Pros: "Food and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Because of some system updating we were unable to check in online and had to wait until we got to the airport to select seats. By then, there were no decent seats available. My bladder nearly burst because the guy next to me slept the whole time. They say it will take 3 weeks to update the system. This is a terrible level of customer care."

We're grateful to the entire staff at JAL for saving us a lot of time and money!"

Cons: "Great airline great service. Haihly recommended"

Pros: "I was highly impressed with Japan Air's staff both at the gate and on the flight. It was incredible customer service. I get really anxious with flying and traveling in general and was so eased just by their friendliness and organization. Thank you! I also forgot to write a review but my flight from San Diego to Tokyo on June 27 was also amazing. I was really stressed out over some logistics of my trip and the people at the gate in San Diego were so helpful!"

Cons: "Airplan so old and ac not work super hot."

Pros: "The crews were polite and reliable. No bossy or mean like other airlines. they moved prompt, no running or fast walk on aisles, so that passengers can ask things easily. Food was much better comparing with any other companies. The boarding time was delayed one hour, however we landed japan 2, 3 mins later than the estimated arrival time. Landing technique was beautiful. American, United, ANA which I flew caused me have a deep Earache. I didn't get any pain from this flight. I am already scared of returning flight with American airplines."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "There was nothing to dislike"

They apologizedon't many times but no compensation, seats were first row but not first class, business, economy, or premium economy. They said it's called "J" class! You still get 3 pcs of luggage and pay business class price! Never JAL again domestic, maybe international or Never ever!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was diverted to another airport and when we finally got to Tokyo, the next flight's gate had closed even though it didn't leave for another two hours. We had to wait in a huge line to get rebooked and it was clear the Japan Airlines employees did not know what they were doing. Put me on a flight next day and couldn't even provide hotels for us (gave us $100 to find our own which was near impossible at that time). I had to sleep in a sleeping bag in the airport overnight by myself."

Pros: "food was great movies are updated flight attendants are professional and courteous"

Cons: "Movie selection was not so good No Wifi inbound or outbound 777 Almost nonstop babies crying the whole flight Seat selection on the website is not user friendly, and you cannot get seats books until 72 hours before flight and usually 9 out of 10 times I find I cannot find 2 seats together until airport checkin."

Pros: "The 787 was quieter and felt very comfortable. The take off and landing were more smooth than I remember other flights being. The seats were quite comfortable and everything was very nice."

Pros: "The entertainment system was grest with many movie optionstar and a large screen for viewing. The seat was very comfortable and there plenty of leg room."
Cons: "The plane was delayed by 45min and I had a connecting flight which I ended not missing. The food was average. I was expecting something a little more Japanese instead of chicken pasta. And I didn't have a second option."

Pros: "I loved the crew, for the most part the food, and the large screen to."
Cons: "The bed was uncomfortable, in that the arm rests disappear when you lay flat the bed. A petty thing since at least it was business class, but without taking pillows from empty seats it was uncomfortable when lying on one's side and nowhere to put arms."

Pros: "More leg room in Japan airlines. I decided to use JAL as much as possible. Stewardess are all nice and very attentive."

Pros: "This was not to positive off a flight."

Pros: "The crew was awesome. They were attentive. The always said they were sorry as the went down the aisle with the cart. They made sure they didn’t disturb you while you were sleeping. The food was awesome. I can’t explain it you have to go on a trip with them and experience it."
Cons: "Seats could always be more comfortable."

Cons: "No any fruit available snack Lay over is too long!"

"You can't check in now because it's a US flight, so it's only 24 hours". "You can't check in now because of visa documents something you have to check in at the airport". None of this was written down, or even satisfactorily explained when I tried to understand what was going on. Next time I'll fly Asiana on the hope they have a better online seat selection system that doesn't involve bizarre US checkin policy."

Cons: "Although I had already checked in on line and had a boarding pass, I stood in line for ninety minutes at Incheon just to self-drop a bag. That's just not acceptable. I'd avoid Incheon and Korea Air for future flights for this reason."

Pros: "The crew were excellent."
Cons: "I would have liked to have had a wider selection of movies. I would also have liked to have a hard copy menu to look at prior to meals, as unfortunately I couldn't always understand the crew, even though they were fantastic. With a little more detail I could have determined whether something was spicy or not."

Cons: "Boarding would have been fast if the passengers seating in the back rows were called first to board, followed by the middle rows, and last to board, people seated in the fron rows (after of course calling the priority passengers. Traffic on the aisle would be avoided"

Pros: "The service and the entertainment"

Pros: "Watched a great movie "spotlight" on board"
Cons: "Flight was delayed a little"

Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "Let's start with the overrated leg space and seating comfort. It was cramped as with any other regular airline. Seats in the economy section are not comfortable and have no back support. These seats should have better cushions and back support. Our flight attendant had a bad attitude after we asked for wine and didn't offered us any beverages for at least two occasions. No warm towel either. She just skipped us like we were not there. The meals are just ok. Nothing remarkable. Then we stand in line for almost two hours after a 14.5 hours flight to get through immigration. The overall experience was not good at all and for that price the comfort and service should be much better."

Pros: "한국 국적기라 그런지 모든게 완벽함. 카약 고마워용. everything is so perpect thx"

Pros: "Very friendly service."
Cons: "Korean Air needs to improve check-in. Didn't realize that Morning Calm could be used after early check-in even though kiosk didn't give boarding pass. Once we did and switched out of the SLOW regular line it went great."

Pros: "This was my first trip abroad and Korean Air made it extremely enjoyable! I greatly enjoyed the pillow, blanket, overall hospitality, the continuous offers of food, snacks, and drinks. The planes were very nice and didn't seem over crowded. Ticket and baggage clerks were amazing!"

Pros: "Korean Air always does a great job and they keep their aircraft and lavatory super clean. Food was tasty and very sufficient. Nice wine choices and they pour great whiskey."

Cons: "I'm a tall guy so I didn't have enough leg room to lay down"

Cons: "The transfer was very inconvenient going thru customs which I think is not necessary since all passengers just came out from another plane. There was one incident that I really needed to go to the bathroom and the seatbelt just turned on. They didn't let me go but I saw other people stand up and go to the bathroom."

Pros: "Qatar Airways ground staff and cabin crew were excellent throughout the journey. The cleanliness and comfort of the plane was also fantastic."
Cons: "I can't think of anything that wasn't good."

Cons: "My flight got canceled but nobody responded from flyus.com"

Cons: "Many of the entertainment systems were broken."

Pros: "Delighteful experience"
Cons: "Better guidance at transit stop"

Pros: "Airlines' diligence in arranging an alternative flight in place of the missed connection because the initial departure from JFK was delayed due to technical reasons"
Cons: "Much ballyhooed A350-1000 has noisy engines rudely interrupting my enjoyment of the entertainment system - may be my seats were too close to the engines. The seats are not all that comfortable though perhaps wider than usual configuration in economy."

Pros: "The staff at Qatar Airways did everything they could to make this flight one of the most enjoyable of my entire life. The food was well prepared and exceeded my expectations. I also enjoyed that the food was served at times that minimized the impact of the time change."
Cons: "The movie and TV options were impressive; however, in-flight WiFi and power would have been convenient and improved the entertainment on board the flight."

Pros: "The plane was Dreamliner. It was huge and nice. Great staff on board , very friendly ."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "We carefully taken care . The Hotess were alright"
Cons: "Their food are ok"

Pros: "Nothing was spectacular."
Cons: "No lounge in Philadelphia took my Priority Pass. On the flight, the woman in front of me threw her chair back without asking and almost had hot coffee all over me. When I asked her to put her chair up, she got mad. She went to staff to insist she could put her chair back. I showed them that I was indeed in a back brace for a health condition and that I needed opportunities to move and shift, cross legs to release tension, etc. Staff sided with the rude woman, who, given the chance to move to an equal seat on the opposite aisle where she could recline, refused to move. I was very frustrated and have never been treated with such discrimination regarding my health concerns."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

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

Cons: "Unfortunately WiFi services was off"

Pros: "Transit 9 hours without hotel"

Cons: "most of us sitting in and around me didn't get any rest or sleep as we had a passenger who had a psychotic breakdown and was screaming and poking everyone. She sprinkled me with water severally, I hope we get some sort of compensation from Qatar airways for this terrible disturbance"

Pros: "Friendly crew and good food/drink service. Timely departure. Comfortable and spacious seating at the departure gate."

Pros: "Entertainment and food was good."
Cons: "Long flight from Doha to LA."

Cons: "My personal stuff been stolen in airports"

Pros: "Doha to hyd was good. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Even after online checkin. Just to drop the bags it took 1 hr. The thin old black lady at the baggage drop off counter was very partial in treating people. She allowed a black male take 27.8 kgs but asked us to adjust our bags when we had 23 kgs. Also if the passenger is allowed to carry a laptop bag, according to her training and theory she only knows 1 shape and does not recognize a back pack which has only the laptop. I travelled several times in Qatar, but never had this kind of experience."

Pros: "great staff"
Cons: "Some of the head phone are not working at all...."

Pros: "Stewards were great"
Cons: "No complaints for this leg of the journey. Entertainment options were mediocre as all legs of my journey had the identical offerings and i pretty much watched all of it in my round trip almost 48 hours of total on plane time."

Pros: "Airplane crew was nice when they saw I was very upset over that my luggage was refused."
Cons: "My luggage was refused at the check-in due to several mistakes from the check-in and Customer service personbil from Qatar. It is now one week after my flight and my luggage is still not with me. I have spend lots of money and written 3 LONG mails to Qatar Customer Service - some have been teplied with a ”we will get back to You” note - but nobody has gotten back to me so far. Not 5 Stars. Actually One star is too good a Grade for this complete service failure from A-Z."

Pros: "Very professional ground staff and cabin crew; very genuine and trained well. However, the first class food is absolutely subpar. Entertainment choices were great though & the lie flat seats are fab!"
Cons: "The food"

Cons: "Few selection of food."

Pros: "I like the service very much. Flight attendants are very friendly and helpful, polite. After the flight I got some present. Kit with socks eye mask and lip balm, which was very nice."
Cons: "Dnt have anything to say what I dnt like. Everything is great."

Pros: "Helpful staffs and great stewardess!"

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "The crew was friendly"

Cons: "Food and behaviour of hostess serving in our line I.e. Seat 34 b & 34c"

Pros: "Comfortable, attractive, nice music, good food, nice crew, on time, easy takeoff and landing! What else could you ask for? ;-)"

Pros: "Excellent crew and service"

Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."

Pros: "Nothing, no one was helpful at all."
Cons: "I arrived to the airport 2 hours prior to my departure to find out that my booking was cancelled. I never received a notification or nothing. I purchased a multi-trip and failed to used the ticket I purchased because I had to leave Qatar early since the person I was staying with was disorganized and flew out the country. I then purchased a different ticket with another airline because it was cheaper. Since I did that, they cancelled my whole trip. HOW? And I payed for a service I clearly didn't receive. As a result, stranded, I had to pay an additional $1,125 for a one way ticket home - more than my original round trip multi flight purchase."

Pros: "Food quality needs to improve, some chairs can't recline."

Pros: "Enjoyed the personal attention and charming personality of the flight crew!"
Cons: "Can't think of any!"

Pros: "Everything was good ... we were on time .. no delay so .. perfect !"

Pros: "I enjoyed the staff"
Cons: "The screens were old school and I HS a hard time getting it to work Also the sleep mask I received had sticky stuff all over it when I opened the package."

Cons: "We took off in a terrible storm with lightning striking all around the plane. Very rough, lightning which scared the hell out of both me and my wife."

Cons: "Cabin temperature in my section was slight hot and was uncomfortable until we complained to the supervisor. Steward spilt food on the floor next to our seat"

Pros: "Seat leg room is very decent"
Cons: "very old planes with no wifi. Food overall was terrible. So called 5 star airline."

Pros: "Check was extremely slow & delayed"

Cons: "7 hours on the phone all over the world so far and absolutely nobody willing to take ownership of this problem. What terrible service"

Cons: "The seats are a little cramped for economy. The headphones are not good, they are either too loud or can't hear enough."

Cons: "The Airlines is saying, They notified the travel agent. I did not receive any emails. I was able to do web checkin. Only when i went to the airport, I was told, the flight got cancelled. Had to stay 24 hours in Bangalore. Very BAD service."

Cons: "Please improve food. Same cold sandwich was given again and again. There was no tea, coffee, cold drink, fruit or chocolates. The menu was very bad. We are disappointed with food."

Cons: "Seats were torn and adjustments were malfunctional. No drinks were offered. Wifi did not work either."

Pros: "Turkish airlines is reaaly good"

Cons: "Good service no delayed"

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."

Cons: "I will inform everyone I know not make customer to your company because of boor service"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Sit in the plane too tight"

Pros: "Nothing was good"
Cons: "Everything can be improved"

Pros: "Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Old plane. Not sparkling clean... bad leg room"

Pros: "I cancelled flight and you charged full amount as cancellation amount."
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Food personnel"

Pros: "The food was decent"
Cons: "Too crowded and hectic. Not enough leg room. (and I’m not even a tall person to begin with)"

Pros: "Food, staff attitude, service. Good communications from captain during lateness period at JFK."
Cons: "In Istanbul the line for boarding was badly mismanaged, something unusual for them."

Cons: "The flight was delayed from Athens by 1.5 hours. Crew assured us we would make our connections. When we landed no info was given. No announcements made. We were forced to clear security again, even though just transferring and, after running to our gate, found the connection had left and the gate was abandoned with no one to tell us where to go or what to do. The lack of communication and information was appalling. Most people eventually found their way through the airport to a desk that booked them on a flight the next day. It was exhausting and the Turkish staff were unsympathetic."

Pros: "Plane clean, newish. Went up, took us there, landed."
Cons: "The food - I always have a v-meal - is sadly inadequate. Not enough of it, and very unimaginative. And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row. The entertainment system kept dropping playback, (crashing) so I would have to restart playing the video. Something similar happened on another Turkish flight."

Cons: "Chair are not working well"

Pros: "All is good"

Pros: "Crew is amazing food is good plane is clean and comfortable"

Cons: "See above, very poor experience with Turkish airlines. On the flight to NY, I asked for some food (the cheese sandwiches) only to be told that they did not have enough for the flight and that they ran out. If you are going to offer something inflight, should you not make sure that you have enough of the item?"

Pros: "I liked how smooth our flight was thanks to the flight crew. The entertainment was great and helped pass the time. The flight crew was great and attentive."
Cons: "The food was ok but I wish I knew a way to have vegetarian options. I would have liked some kind of fruit options as well."

Pros: "Safety instructions with zach king were nice! The crew was helpful."
Cons: "My screen didnt work. They reset it a few times, then it began working.. after a while i started playing a game and the screen got stuck! There was no one in the seat next to me so i thought I'd use that screen.. but then that one got stuck too. Remained stuck for the rest of the flight... The USB cable for charging didnt work. And entertainment options were very limited too."

Pros: "Finally got a vegan sandwich that saved my life after the 13 hour flight before this one!"

Pros: "wonderful staff."
Cons: "there was a delay we were not told about, we left an hour late, but we're not told anything, this is problematic as you pass through a second round of security to sit by the gate and can't even go to the rest room with out repeating the check. the landing was very rough but no ones falt"

Pros: "Good food and service"

Pros: "Friendly and attentive crew and quality of food and beverages served"
Cons: "Edinburgh boarding gate was changed 3 times and the flight was delayed"

Pros: "Unfortunately they do not use their best aircraft on this route, still good experience and surprisingly good food. On time and perfect service."
Cons: "Seats only average as far as comfort and room, and no personal screens for entertainment (unlike the route Athens-Istanbul, which is the same length as this one, Istanbul-Bari)."

Pros: "The up to date and *free movie options"

Pros: "Nice crew. Boarding and deplane was fairly easy and quick."
Cons: "Seats in coach are quite close and became worse when people reclined."

Cons: "We were in business. Food and service quality has gone downhill since last year. Cabin temperature is very warm. Staffs are not friendly. They spent a lot of time chatting in the galley talking and eating off food serving trays. Yikes!"

Pros: "Loved how friendly the staff was and wanted you to feel at home"
Cons: "Nothing out of the ordinary, seats can be a bit cramped but that can't be helped on a long flight"

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

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excellent STAR lounge in Istanbul Good service, once settled. Friendly staff."
Cons: "On line check-in system does not remember frequent flier info. Passport check at gate was poorly managed. Everyone was in waiting area then told to get out and stand in line for passport check. It happened each time so this seems to be their normal process. On flight back they bused us to the airplane and waited for all three buses to arrive at the airplane before allowing anyone to board. Flight attendants helped with moving carry on bags in bins but with little consideration to the items. Completely unorganized boarding process to the point it is worth paying a little more to fly a different airline."

Cons: "The fact that the flight was cancelled and I wasn't notified"

Pros: "We got the two outside seats returning, and it made all the difference (we had the center row on our flight to Rome)."

Pros: "Liked the strong team from the Captain's handling of plane to the cabin crew service and food."
Cons: "Confusion in Istanbul about connecting flights due to Turkish time change."

Pros: "Turkish Airlines still my pick for long haul flights. Stand outs are the meals followed by attentive crew. IFE also very extensive"

Cons: "You broke my suitcase"

Pros: "From extra free bag, to all the little things they give you to make you feel much more comfortable, to the scrumptious meals and constant attendants attentiveness to passengers needs. Loved everything!!! Especially the way we can follow our route on the screens."
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Cons: "We boarded on time but the flight didn't leave for another 45 minutes or so. This made me miss my next flight when I landed in Instanbul. I think they might have been doing extra checks on the plane so it's fine. Even though I missed my flight and it was out of my control, I was able get another flight within 5 hours and free of charge!"

Pros: "The crew, landing before scheduled, wonderful, delicious food. Good pillow and linens."

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: "I love the touchdown, of the smoothest ive experienced. It was a long journey but a comfy one. Great job turkish airlines."

Pros: "Crew was very attentive, complete punctuality, everything of high quality."
Cons: "no information o.n frequent flier program"

Pros: "Moved into business class much more leg room"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The seats were so small for such a long flight. I realize that's the case with alll planes, but I was suffering. Everything else was great. The people, the entertainment, everything."

Cons: "Baggage handling was rough. Dented one new bag and broke the buckle on another."

Pros: "The food was good, as was the service."
Cons: "Delays, both at Dulles, as well as in Istanbul."

Pros: "NennnnnM"

Pros: "Entertainment at the seat was very satisfactory."
Cons: "Boarding was really "orientalic". Small place, lot of people, long Q, long waiting time."

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. Plane interior was in new condition, including electronic window shade tinting."
Cons: "Staff was not particularly warm or attentive. Was never offered more to drink, and after asking for more wine was ignored."

Pros: "The best airline ever! Super friendly crew and staff, great customer service and nice planes. Love KLM!"

Pros: "The plane size & comfort was excellent. The staff were very friendly"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Everything perfect and arrive to destination on perfect time."
Cons: "All positive."

Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."

Pros: "Good amount of space on the plane, lots of movies to watch, good food and drink."

Pros: "Excellent crew, good food & movie selection."

Pros: "Seats were super comfortable, bigger than most planes with extra leg room. Food was excellent and fresh, amazing Dutch cheese sampler was divine. No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."

Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."

Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"

Pros: "Slow service."
Cons: "Better communication!"

Cons: "Dozens of high school students screaming and climbing onto seats, crew did not intervene."

Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"

Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."

Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The seats"

Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."

Pros: "The seat was spacious and the concept of the evening meal being the lighter option was innovative and well thought out"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and congested with not much information or order."

Cons: "Very slow service at checkin, was not even available when I arrived at the airport"

Pros: "The flight was perfect! Great food,movies and I even got to sleep !"
Cons: "All was well!"

Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."

Pros: "The entertainment options were good."

Pros: "Everything excellent. Comfortable seats in business."

Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."

Cons: "Aircraft returned to gate due to fault and was delayed for 45 min."

Pros: "Decent seat size. Sorta slept the whole flight."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful personnel."

Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"

Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"

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: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."

Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."

Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."

Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"

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: "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: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
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: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "lack of meal options"

Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"

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

Pros: "A nice short flight"
Cons: "We had booked business on our flight to Milan, and it was extremely disappointing that on this sector they put us on the last seat in the back of the plane. There were plent of seats on this flight that had extended legroom. A bit of a mystery, why Westjet elected to put usin the last seats on the plane?"

Pros: "Smooth boarding. Good food. Decent leg room at my seat. Good crew. Flight was on time. Good magazine on the flight for entertainment."
Cons: "They didn't give any napkins out with the food which was weird."

Pros: "Newer plane. Dimming windows, upgraded bathroom. Flight crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't announced. Limited in flight movie selection. Food was average. Same dessert for both meals served."

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: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and because of this I missed my connection flight to Amsterdam"

Pros: "Leg room. Smiles of the cabin crew."
Cons: "Not enough selection of Electronic Dance Music. Lol!"

Cons: "Taking off late caused me stress because I had transferring flight within less than two hours in transit originally. So we arrived later about 50 minutes so I had to manage my situation and find my next gate and be on time. And an other thing that I disliked was that I was allowed to have only one baggage which was very unusual for international flight between two countenances. And the crew was not polite enough so she made fun of my Cary-on. In short, I expected more from KLM which is famous for them being "Royal" but not acting as one of them."
