My luggage was delayed because the flight arrived late and I almost missed my connecting flight to Atlanta. My luggage was delayed and it took 3 days to receive my luggage once it arrived in Atlanta. The baggage department is horrendous and non-existent. I did not get a call, I had to go to the Airport and wait for manager to board a flight, waited 3 hours and then they got my luggage for me. I understand staffing issues but there should be a better process for baggage services.
Good food, comfortable seating, excellent service, affordable air fares, professional/friendly crew. This was my first Qatar airways travel. Enjoyed the travel very much. I will choose Qatar airways for my future travel and recommend to my family and friends. Thank you for making my travel enjoyable.
Pros: "Excellent services"
Cons: "No toilet available at gate due to enhanced security measures when flying to the USA."

Cons: "Please place crying babies in a sound-proof compartment"
Pros: "Entertainment, crew was very hard-working."
Cons: "Economy seats are way too tight, had severe problems with knee room when seat in front was reclined. A terrible passenger just forward of me had no regard to this issue and refused to be cooperative. Food was lukewarm at best and was on mildly appetizing in economy."
Pros: "The crew and accommodations"
Cons: "Availability of vegan meals"
Cons: "All the food was terrible breakfast lunch and dinner I was sick from eating chicken I started vomiting as soon as I was on my way home , please serve better food , food tastes like factory junk , please offer cold drink and cold water or least ask if you would like ice, all the cups for the beverages was small, seating was very uncomfortable not enough room especially if you sitting next to a large person they kept elbow me and taking up my seating , I was so miserable on a 16 hours flight on Qatar to LAX , very bad experience , please do better, also staff was not friendly"
Pros: "Food was good, and the crew were very patient and polite - went out of their way to make us comfortable."
Cons: "The aircraft seemed to be really old. The entertainment system on the seat I was allotted did not work, and I had to change seats. In the new seat, the entertainment system worked, but the seat didn't recline, and I had to change seats again - from an initially allotted aisle seat, to a middle seat. Also, the food service time was weird - we got a full lunch about an hour before we landed, which didn't make sense, and had to wait almost 5 - 6 hours between brunch and our next meal - a movie snack. Most passengers were famished by the time the lunch was served. Also, why was there no wifi?"
Pros: "Friendly and beautiful crew (specially one air hostess) lol"
Cons: "too long flight"
Pros: "Qatar airlines the service was awesome and the planes very clean"
Cons: "Seating not able to upgrade"

Pros: "Stewards and Stewardess were very prompt and always had a smile!"
Pros: "Food crew and entertainment were all good thanks"
Cons: "A child behind me kept kicking the back of the seat all the time and the mother did nothing about it"
Cons: "The TSA agents broke my phone and tried to hide it in a secured package with another of my electronics. I questioned why 1/3 phones were in secured and the others were not. I was told to not open the bag until I reached my destination. Lucky I opened it after I cleared security to find that the face of the phone had been shattered with glass shards sticking out, I bought this to the crews' attention and was told to send an email to a random email for the airlines and that the incident would be investigated later. So basically I was given the brush off. Worst experience I have had while flying."
Pros: "Crew, service, price"
Cons: "Seats are small"
Pros: "Any time dining, excellent food offering, excellent drink offering, and excellent service. Unbeatable!"
Cons: "Lack of crowd control at the gate during boarding. It was hard to squeeze through for business class boarding."
Pros: "It was exellent but long flight keep it up!"
Cons: "Everything was above avarage"
Pros: "Crew were supportive because pain in my heel and they ran out of food selection even though front of plane. Thanks especially to supervisor Jane."
Cons: "Need to provide further quantity of non veg selection even though front of plane. Plus the taste of all food were Unsatisfactory and could not finish that was starving at end of flight. Recommend hire international famous gourmet chief. Removing casing of my tablet for Qatar security airlines into usa was painful that broke 6 finger nails. Need to warn on the website or ticket security requires remove casing at Doha to usa. Had no issue from USA TO Doha which requires no removal of hard cover casing."
Cons: "Business class luggage came late."
Pros: "Helpful and friendly crew"
Cons: "Same as kochi to Doha flight"
Cons: "Preboarding area had no bathrooms. Boarding process was erratic with conflicting calls for zones. Discomfort with people bumping you as they walked down the aisle..toilets unkempt. Exit row USB port misaligned with seating area, so my USB cable bent and broke."
Pros: "outstanding crew -- particularly one flight attendant."
Cons: "Length of flying time -- not airlines fault. Could be more space"
Pros: "The cabin crew, the cabin crew, the cabin crew. Enough said. They are thoroughly trained and exhibited unparalleled professionalism"
Cons: "Ground/baggage handling in ATL. Bags took 40-50 minutes to show up on carousel. The ground staff at ATL dropped the ball when everything else was going so smoothly"
Pros: "the crew as more customer friendly, and it appeared they really take care of customer, not just put some words on paper."
Cons: "i have requested the child meal on the web site and also requested the seat preferences, however when i boarded the flight, i came to know that they have only honored the seat preferences but not the food. on the serving menu, the veg option was available but we informed that the veg is available only if we have requested it on the web site, i had to survive with add-on food but not the real meal. crew were struggling to serve food for us."
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 staff is friendly and attentive. Food has been flavorful and consistent in quality. Blankets and pillows have been clean. The energizer juice was an excellent option."
Cons: "The cleaning crew was in a hurry and there was a used cotton ear swab in the remote armrest. The tray did not close snugly back when closed up. The remote buttons were not quick to respond and needed to be pressed firmly and slowly. The food menu needs more lighter options. The toilet could use mouthwash addition."
Pros: "Everything was excellent no complaints rated 10"
Cons: "I really enjoyed myself the flight and all I would recommend my friends to fly anytime rated 10"
Pros: "Upgrade to business class was a nice gesture and the service was impeccable.."
Cons: "Just a tad delayed in getting off the plane...not sure what took unexpectedly long"
Cons: "Poor service, didn't get to sit with rest of our party, food average, overbooked flight, no room for luggage storage."
Pros: "free flowing wine and beer --- unlike previous flight on QA when the actual supervisor of the staff did not allow a proper stipend of the red wine --- also I witnessed her incivility to another passenger which was appalling -- the crew on this flight deserve to be commended"
Cons: "nothing on the actual flight --- but i felt we had been promised overnight hotel stay since the layover was 8 hours and 55 minutes --- if was not granted in spited of 2 eMails and promise at the time of booking"
Cons: "in flight entertainment interface can be improved to be more user friendly."
Cons: "No flexibility in flight changes"
Pros: "Customer service was super! Entertainment package was nice, many current movies worth watching ."
Cons: "No Wifi on flight !!"
Pros: "The food and service was great"
Cons: "The bathroom could be cleaner :)"
Cons: "All connecting flights to US are pretty long flights (14-16 hrs) and I personally, don't want to travel and try to avoid taking those long flights."
Pros: "The flight crew was great. They were very kind."
Cons: "The biggest problem with my flight was it was very crowded so it was hard to get comfortable for such a long flight. I wish I can afford first class but I can't."
Cons: ",also I had to wait for longer time again due to less people for wheel chair assist.."
Cons: "I was sitting on seat no 15J. Head phone socket was not working. i cant charge my cell phone. It was 14hrs flight. It was very difficult for me to pass the time."
Cons: "Poor customer service"
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: "crew, food, service"
Cons: "3 hrs delayed"
Pros: "Entertainment n meals"
Cons: "Not sure"
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."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding and check in makes me want to never fly with Turkish air again. Worst customer service ever!!!"
Pros: "The service was great and the price was the best out there. Everything about this airline was great except for the boarding process in Istanbul."
Cons: "The boarding process in Isanbul was third rate. We went through five security screenings at the gate after having gone through airport security. We were crowded into a space that wouldn’t have accommodated a group half our size. Then we were criwded onto busses to stand and wait about 20 minutes while others cleared the five security screenings."
Pros: "See previous"
Cons: "See previous"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Economy was tight."
Pros: "Good new airline ,good people nice service,everything was perfect thank you turkish airline"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I forgot to choose special meal request but they have good vegeterian food options"
Pros: "Overall, the flight was good, right on schedule. Crew were very nice and professional."
Cons: "I was in one of the seats next to the lavatory and the smell was quite unpleasant. Actually, I perceived a bad odor during boarding, the toilets were not cleaned for our flight."
Pros: "the plane was nice"
Cons: "the timing was so bad"
Pros: "Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again."
Pros: "I enjoy flying with Turkish Airlines, because of the staff and great food options, but this time I was starving, to be honest, as the flight was almost 13 hours, and we ate like once or twice. Then.. I had to beg to water all the time. Why would not you provide with plenty of water for such a long flight? This made my flight not great. Boarding process.. HORRIBLE. Took me 1 hour to pass 50 meters of space with endless checkings. Never seen this before."
Pros: "The crew looked after the children on the flight giving them coloring books, milk and little things I noticed. Therefore the children on the flight didn't fuss a lot therefore they didn't disturb the other passengers"
Pros: "I made it home a few minutes early. The flight attendants. The inflight bathroom was clean. The dinner rolls were warm."
Cons: "The airport felt like 95 degrees. There was no elevator to carry luggage and my cat downstairs. Everything had to be hand carried, two large bags, a carry-on and my handbag and my cat. I was kept waiting many times without explanation. The carpet in the plane was soaking wet...when you step on it you could feel liquid splash up on your feet. the airplane was quite warm. The seat would not stay upright. The children behind me kicked my seat the entire 11.5 hour flight. The monitor to watch TV also would not stay upright. The solitaire game would never load. The airport crew had conflicting instructions. My checked bags were damaged and bungee cords were missing. I was not alerted before boarding that my computer, tablet and camera would be confiscated until my ATL destination and therefore they were not properly padded for flight. A long time to disembark the plane...The attendant had to call and ask where the connector was to let us leave."
Cons: "The "Pasta-cheeze" meal on TK 31 was horribly bland, reminded me of the gruesome meals I had on United Airlines. I was totally shocked, because all other meals were excellent."
Pros: "Despite the computer regulations the THY handled it smoothly in Istanbul. In Atlanta we had to wait at least half an hour to get them back. Service was good, till the end of the flight restrooms were clean. Besides they offer 2-luggage policy. I try to use them as much as I can. Thanks THY"
Pros: "Service.. questions answered. food"
Pros: "The Food"
Cons: "The seat size"
Pros: "The attention from the crew and services"
Cons: "One of my lougage was left behind , I got after a week of stressing from one state to the other with lot of stress and unplanned expenditure I was not really sure whether it was their fault or air canada who charged me $225 for a little box mearnt to b a hand lougage. .. I was really pissed but on all the Turkish airline gave their best but the connecting flight air Canada has the worst services ever.... no food or drink was offered all through to Canada and their workers lack customer service"
Pros: "It was s safe flight."
Cons: "We were forced to go through numerous security checks. The last check was at the gate and our carry-ons were searched yet again and our laptops, cameras and iPads were taken. Apparently we cannot bring these items on the plane and no one told us, the customers who paid to board this flight. Plus the wifi was not free. And when we tried to use the wifi code we were given from the crew as a "perk" from our camera Ana iPads being taken, that still did not work. So that was a 13 hr flight with no wifi. Plus on my flight from Istanbul to Atlanta my Tv did not work and the crew didn't speak English and could not understand my complaint. Overall the worst flight ever, close to a Delta flight which everyone knows is the bottom of the barrel of airlines. When we finally arrived in Atlanta it took 3 HOURS to get our baggage. We landed at 7:45 PM and did not get our bags until 11 pm. We were not told what the delay was and to just be patient. I will a NEVER take this airline agin."
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Pros: "Complimentary travel kit was a life saver."
Pros: "the crew in turkish airlines is always nice and courteous. the food was very tasty. i LOVE the little bag with slippers, socks and tooth brush and paste and other amenities."
Cons: "i got lucky and had multiple seats to myself, and it was still tight. i can imagine if i had only one seat i would be in a lot of pain coming off the flight. the bathrooms are very tight too,"
Pros: "The service was great, no one had any attitude on the plane,but the airports were different"
Cons: "The airport service was horrible, they rerouted us made us wait in Charlotte for 2 extra hours and there were half kids on board, a baby was crying every hour and my earplugs didn't mask the noise enough, I swear I thought two mom's were going to fight."
Pros: "Avoiding my to go Israel Delta monopoly is fading"
Pros: "They should inform layover passengers about getting their visa for free hotel accommodations."
Pros: "Friendly service and plenty of food"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight but there are free tours or free hotel accommodations that are offered"
Pros: "The Flight Attendants were really nice."
Cons: "You could not control your air conditioning and it was very warm in the front of the plan but cool in the back."
Pros: "Service was excellent."
Cons: "1) The foot rest blocks the ability to stretch your legs. A very uncomfortable 12 hour flight. Cramped. As a result, I will probably go with another European airline on my trans-Atlantic flights. 2) You need to offer snacks between meals on a 12 hour flight (back in the galley). Every other airline I have flown offers these on long haul flights in the galley - usually a small snack like chips or cookies. Your flight attendant told me that she would be serving the second meal in about 4 hours. Really, I was shocked that nothing was available in between meals on such a long flight."
Pros: "The food was good, the crew was very professional and friendly."
Cons: "The seats are too crammed and there's barely any room in the economy class."
Cons: "It was hot on the airplane"
Pros: "Hey, two checked bags free, two free in flight measl and drinks including alcohol, and coffee service midway, free in flight movies and music, free headphones, free blankets, and a free toothbrush, yea toothbrush, its like flying in the way way back."
Cons: "The check in lines are very very long and take forever"
Pros: "It got me there alive"
Cons: "better entertainment, but still not the best"
Pros: "That it was a direct flight ."
Cons: "I usually prefer Turkish Airlines and always seek to take it in most of my travels. This time the service was not as I have been used to . Too many people were changing seats with permission from the air hostesses . The air hostesses missed me 3 times for food and beverage . They passed right by me . They weren't organized at all. I had to call them to remind them to give me some food and drink. Plus when boarding they only announced it in Turkish and not English"
Pros: "I loved all of the on-board movies and TV shows! The food was very good for "airplane food" and the staff was friendly. They provide headphones, blankets, pillows, and more-- all for free! I definitely would recommend Turkish Airlines."
Pros: "Seat comfort and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Boarding process was poor. CREW HAD NO CONTROL over passengers standing, opening overhead bins and walking around while plane was taxing. FOOD WAS POOR at best horrible at times."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines has some of the best amenities of any airline: great meals (and often), clean planes, plus two free checked bags for flights between Middle East and USA."
Cons: "The plane was overbooked with MANY seats having been doubly assigned. After more than half an hour we were given a new seat assignment (in first class! Business class had already been filled with other double bookings!). They did their best to accommodate everyone though and the remainder of the flight was very pleasant."
Pros: "The crew members were so nice and helpful. Food was good and delicious"
Cons: "Boarding was terrible. They had three departure from one gate. Not organized at all"
Cons: "Surprised to find out that there was no rock/metal playlist available within music menu, considering that Finnish artists/bands are famous worldwide and very proficient in this genre."
Pros: "Finnair is the best!"
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Our flight got delayed so American Airlines Auto switched us to a flight leaving a day later with a 17 hour layover. When I called to get it fixed I waited on hold for 30 minutes before I got through. Once we got on original flight they gave away seats we paid extra for and gave us no refund."
Cons: "the flight was delayed, boarding was the slowest ever and we received something to drink after 1,5h of flight"
Pros: "Loved the wine hour, location, access to bikes and lovely breakfast buffet! Service was super friendly, too."
Cons: "I hate paying for water but I seem to do this all over town."
Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Pros: "Loved Finnair. Hated Justfly.com. If you own this company, you need to end up like Blockbuster or Circuit City."
Cons: "If I would have purchased my tickets from Finnair.com, I would have had a much better experience. Kayak found me a good price but purchasing the tickets through Justfly.com was the biggest mistake of my life. The trip ended up costing me $285 more than what I budgeted and there was zero customer ser"
Cons: "Boarding process could have been smoother"
Pros: "This is a great way to travel from Helsinki to Tampere and avoid the railway and train changing."
Cons: "The plane is not comfortable, but the flight is very short. It balances out."
Pros: "Food and entertainment is good"
Cons: "They had hidden checked bag fees. Their website says flights from the US get a free checked bag. The checkout charged me $60 to check a bag, when I looked on my reservation it says it’s $55 and when I called customer service they said they charge $100 to check 1 bag less than 20kg for an international flight"
Cons: "The flight from India was delayed and as a consequence I missed my connecting flight to Miami. I had to put up in a Hotel at Helsinki and take a flight to Miami the next day via London."
Pros: "Beautiful new modern aircraft & plenty of spare seats on the flight. Paid for Economy comfort & it was worth it."
Cons: "Did not like that you had to pay for drinks & snacks. For someone of Finnair’s standing, you would think they would include it."
Cons: "my plane to NY flew off without me and 11 people."
Pros: "Food on this flight was delicious."
Cons: "WiFi didn't work."
Pros: "Given the choice I would hands down pick Finnair over a US based carrier the Europeans provide bigger seats and better service... Little things like hot towels, extra wine and chocolate after meals was truly appreciated..."
Cons: "Im an amateur traveler and I could have used a little more info at the gate and about getting to my connection I had no idea where it was and that you had to go through a passport line to catch the connection. Came close to missing my connection..."
Pros: "The shortest flight time between NYC and St. Petersburg Russia. Good connecting time, smooth transition in Helsinki."
Cons: "I have never used this airline before and as it was highly rated, I was glad to give it a try. The seats were crammed together very tightly, even for me, a short person! So, the flight was uncomfortable. Then the food was poor. The selection of films was uninspired. The service was indifferent, disinterested, ungenerous. There was something meager, miserly in the whole experience. They are obviously maximizing profits at the expense of the customer, who seems totally disregarded. I would not choose this airline again!"
Pros: "the food given under gluten free food was amazing on FinnAir"
Pros: "The flight was on time and everything ran smoothly."
Cons: "It was a bit confusing that the tv's came out out the seats, an announcement about that would have been helpful."
Pros: "Far better quality and value than BA, it's OneWorld partner."
Cons: "It was all good."
Pros: "All is satisified."
Pros: "Being on time, crew was helpful, entertainment nice. The 30 min layover between JFK-HEL and HEL-SVO was perfectly organized, the gates were next to each other."
Pros: "Great gate and in-cabin crew. LOVED this flight."
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Pros: "No frills but efficient"
Cons: "Food choice limited"
Pros: "Comfort?: had a fat neighbor whose elbow was in my robs"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "There is no wi-fi There is no possibility to charge your mobile"
Pros: "I was surprised with an amount of drinks and food provided.Everything was delicious, and we were very hungry so imagine our happy faces. The crew was professional in all ways.Flight was smooth and comfortable-applause for the pilots!"
Pros: "It is misleading to review this as finnair flight. Not relevant"
Pros: "Flight was on time Baggage arrived on time Light breakfast was good [ I chose not to have dinner ] Slept through 95% of the red-eye flight so it was a good experience"
Cons: "Seating is cramped in economy"
Pros: "Not much to enjoy"
Cons: "The service. 3 hour late flight, had to rebook my connection out of my own pocket. After we got on the plane, we find out the issues were not fixed and had to wait another hour. Terrible food. Yogurt was actually expired, so I had no breakfast. People were all nice as they told me I should have booked the flights together. Hmmm... Maybe you should not have been 4 hours late. I planned my trip with more than enough time to make connection... Called about my travel insurance and found out it kicked in after 6 hour delay. Customer service should never make you feel like the issue is your fault."
Pros: "That I made it safely to my destination. Updates from the cockpit were appreciated. Plane was nearly empty, so I was able to stretch out over severa seats."
Cons: "I haven't heard good things about American Airlines, and now I know why. Probably the oldest plane in the fleet. Entertainment was 2-3 fold down screens from the ceiling. I can't remember the last time I flew on a transatlantic fight with no entertainment- nearly 20 years ago I'm sure. Airplane food is never great, but food options were worse than normal. American Airlines customer service at JFK was horrendous, resulting in several passengers missing their flight. (I was there if 4 hours to spare, but had to wait 1hr+ to have my birthdate changed in the system.)"
Pros: "Food was good for airplane food."
Cons: "Plane only had screens for the movie in the center aisle and only every five rows or so."
Pros: "The new 777 airplanes were exceptional as well as the splendid airline crew!"
Pros: "the price was very good"
Cons: "Some food has too many preservatives, margarine served instead of butter."
Cons: "The crew moved me to another seat on the return flight which allowed me entertainment but I hadThe entertainment console at my seat location on both flights to and from London did not work. That's 10 hours! to move away from my companions."
Pros: "The flight attendants actually seemed to enjoy their jobs, they all were very nice and smiled not like other airlines where the attendants are very stiff and anything you ask for seemed to annoy them. Drinks sizes more generous than most airlines."
Cons: "a long flight from lax to lhr needs more snacks and refreshments"
Pros: "Service was great"
Pros: "Other than the fact that it's a direct flight from jfk to Helsinki, there's not much else to like about it"
Cons: "Even though we paid extra for comfort seats, the seats were extremely uncomfortable! Not just the lack of sufficient leg room (especially when the person in front reclined) but most importantly the quality of the cushions. They were like cardboard and extremely uncomfortable to sit on. We were not able to sleep at all due to the discomfort! Additionally, they lost my luggage. It has been more than 24 hrs since I landed and I still haven't heard anything from them as to where my luggage was, when I should expect it why it still hasn't been delivered. Overall, a terrible experience."
Pros: "Flights were on BA not Finnair"
Cons: "Ba website did not work properly."
Pros: "The price was right. The crew were very pleasant and attentive. Seating had sufficient room. Good movie selection."
Cons: "Seats did not recline properly, were not comfortable and very hard and hard on the bum."
Pros: "Good leg room."
Cons: "I paid an extra $90 to pick this seat. On the website it looked like an exit row seat with lots of room. However I couldn't really move out of my seat without climbing over others. It was a waste of $90."
Pros: "On time arrival."
Cons: "Nothing really. Short flight so no entertainment."
Pros: "The lie flat bed was nice. Lots of good, new movies"
Cons: "The seats are very narrow and you'd either have to climb over someone to go to the bathroom or someone would have to climb over you. And we're talking about complete strangers most of the time. The flight attendants were not very attentive Food was not good at all even for air plane food"
Cons: "Terrible wait to depart. Altered my pick up plans in Barcelona and made me incur in extra expenses"
Pros: "I took the bus back and forth from SF to London. Overseas I am now in contemplation of only flying British Airways from now on. The ride is comfortable, enjoyable, entertaining, adequate space, excellent service, food and drinks are the best I have had, and exceptional services and attention. This goes for both flights. I have been recommending Britsh Airways over the last several weeks to pretty much everyone I know. My family and I will be looking to British Airways for overseas flights as a priority."
Cons: "Connecting flight thru Heathrow was too close for comfort. I just reached the gate at the end of boarding. If there had been a glitch at all I would have missed the flight."
Pros: "on time, rather efficient process, cabin crew"
Cons: "not much room in economy, ipads are not ideal"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful and the flight went well and was ontime, in fact early."
Cons: "I thought that I got one bag checked for free and another one would cost $50. But when I got my boarding pass I was charged $100."
To know the rules of the Covid test better
I did not like anything about the trip. So much could have been better in terms of the service, food, and COVID-19 safety regulations. The service was so poor and the flight attendants were negligent. The food was mediocre and did not take into account people with allergies and food restrictions. The COVID-19 safety regulations were almost non-existent, since the flight attendants did not wear masks properly and did not practice physical distancing. They passengers were not reminded to keep their masks on and wandered around the flight without masks while engaging in socializing with other passengers who also did not have masks on. Overall, I would not recommend this airline in the future especially with the pandemic. How it can be better is by practicing better service with passengers , stressing the reinforcement of masks and physical distance when possible, as well as not allowing passengers to leave their place without a mask.
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food variety could be an order improvement add"
Pros: "Smooth takeoff and landing. I fly frequently with RJ, i had a way better experience with them before"
Cons: "Food was tasteless. one of the crews seemed angry and pissed at everyone for some reason. My chair didnt decline back"
Pros: "It’s hard to say what was good, because everything was sub-par. I would say I liked nothing, except that it got me to where I needed to go. Would I pay for this again? Economy, maybe. Business? No way."
Cons: "Everything. I was flying business so the standard must be higher. Specifically? Bathrooms. Replace eather-worn chairs. Leather retains heat making the whole chair hot. As someone who finds everything cold, this was unbelievable; flight crew (rude & bossy, not international standard); seat positioning (your seat mate has to climb over you); meal (feels like an economy meal put on silverware); the pilot! did a hard brake on the runway, sending loose items flying; I really have nothing positive to say about Royal Jordanian, except that I would be happy to avoid them again."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, clean airplane, great food and service and options, clean bathrooms."
Pros: "The aircraft is new and the crew are nice"
Cons: "More food and more toilets"
Pros: "The seat was great!"
Cons: "Boarding should be better."
Pros: "Every things well"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and we were updated accordingly."
Cons: "Nothing that I can think of."
Pros: "The flight was great. The crew was wonderful as we were traveling with a wheelchair. I will definitely fly Royal Jordanian again."
Pros: "This is the first trip on the Egyptian airline and the last trip and the reason delay."
Cons: "They won’t reimburse us for our flight that they canceled.. HORRIBLE and will never fly with them again."
Cons: "Bad quality meal, worn out plane, entertainment system is broken and the crew just reset it once and didn't help and they didn't do anything about it. The movies are ridiculously old. Asked for exit seat and they said for that I have to pay $80 more. I asked for water, they said they will bring it andbthey never did."
Pros: "Flight was on time and the handling of the plane by the pilots was good"
Cons: "While the plane was a Dreamliner, the quality of the seats, and the space in the seats didn't fit the the usual Dreamliner quality. The toilet facilities were terrible ... urine on the floors that made them sticky and horrifically stinky. Only two food service events during the 13 hours ... the first was OK, but the second was really sub par (a sandwich and a granola bar only)/.The available entertainment choices of movies were really lacking compared to other airlines. My first seat assignment had to be changed, because the man set to be sitting next to me began murmuring and cursing when he found out that I was to be next to him. My second seat assignment had me sitting in front of a man, who angrily refused to let me recline my seat at all, because it would crowd his leg space. Therefore I had to sit perfectly straight for all 13 hours of the flight. There were no other aisle seats for me to switch to. Most airlines offer eye shades and earplugs for the long haul flights. Not this one. Both were needed on this rather noise, chaotic flight. I guess you get what you pay for ... the cheap fare is not worth it. I don't intend to fly this airline again."
Cons: "Full of religus people oriblle babis craying"
Pros: "Crew exceptionally nice"
Cons: "Tedious security before boarding. Cleanliness could be better."
Pros: "We arrived to Amman safely"
Cons: "Some of the passengers are men from Saudi Arabia and they cannot be next to a woman. The flight attendant was very accommodating to those passengers."
Pros: "From not having workers at the airport, to a damaged seat that wouldn’t recline to losing my bag RJ was a total failure."
Cons: "Didn’t like anything the whole experience was terrible."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. The flight is extremely short so there is no meal or beverage service."

Pros: "Time keeping And evry things"
Cons: "No internet on the plane"
Pros: "Bad airport service"
Cons: "Very bad staff"
Pros: "The best airline I ever used! New planes and very friendly workers!"
Pros: "The fact it was a direct flight, for the price of round trip can't really complain but for any cost above what we purchased our tickets would have been extremely disappointed."
Cons: "Small seats no room to even move, food was awful and service on plane was not so friendly nor accommodating."
Pros: "I was quite happy with the space the seats offered in coach! I stand 6'2" and I was quite comfortable. Even when the person confront of me tilted there seat back I still had room to stretch my legs for our 10h journey home. I was also very happy the ticket I had purchased came with a complimentary stay at the airports hotel and a free meal. This was fantastic considering my layover in Amman was 11hs. It was very clean & the staff were very helpful and polite."
Cons: "Not having the option of which meal I would like. They just popped down infront of you what ever they grabbed ."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable. No entertainment. It was a horrible experience. RJ should simply retire their embraer aircrafts"
Pros: "The seats in the plain were comfortable and although it was a short flight, there was a multimedia syste, a pillow and a blanket"
Cons: "Couldn't sleep. Fall a sleep and was wakes up by the crew to get a meal. Couldn't fall a sleep after that. Why was it done ?!"

Cons: "Short flight, comfortable seat"
Pros: "On time and very efficient"

Pros: "Good service, comfortable aircraft and very good info entertainment"
Cons: "Waiting to take off from Heathrow airport."
Cons: "Extensive security. Warm plane. No charging outlets."
Cons: "My daughter and I asked to move to have more room on the flt to change to a different row the flt was not full at all. The crew said they needed the last 2 rows for themselves which I understood until they pulled out all their bedding and lyed down to sleep each taking a full row. I have never seen this befor on my extensive travels. We were only offered fluids to drink 2 times with meals on a 12 hour flt from Jordan to Chicago. I thought this was poor service and not health for the passengers. My meal was the same both times with small amounts and poor quality. I noted it was much better on the way over along with the service. I assisted with a medical emergency on the flt being a emergency room nurse and I did feel the staff was great full I was able to help. I am sorry to say I will choose air France in the future."
Cons: "after one hour delays and half hour flight the rented aircraft had to fly back to the airport for technical issues , the next flight was seven hours later . During this time there was poor communication and terrible service. The inbound flight was also delayed for almost two hours and the same story of bad communication and worse service . I have been flying for a long time with RJ and I can say for certainty that its one of the worst airlines out there. I kept my hope all these years till I finally gave up. They will never improve or learn from their mistakes"
Cons: "Everything. Will not use Royal Jordanian again."
Pros: "The overall experience was great .. I felt the flight was smooth"
Cons: "The entertainment provided is just fine .. no variety of selection available"
Cons: "Late arrival into Amman so missed my connection. They gave me option of staying 24 houra, or pay $75 to get earlier flight. This is with business class tickets !"

Pros: "Space , Crew , Comfort and overall performance is at expected levels and sometimes more"
Cons: "Entertainment isnt updated enough , screens arent really up to date and not with clear pictures , system need to be replaced as it is so old and keeps hanging , and food isnt really good"
Cons: "They charged me extra 125$ at the jordanian Airport to allow me to stay at the airport hotel."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. Is a new Dreamliner from NYC to Amman."
Cons: "Could hardly hear movies on seatback entertainment system-tried both own and their headphones but finally gave up. Also, not a fan of the window shade that only dims-no real shade-light still comes in. Food is not good and drink choices are poor."
Pros: "good service with a friendly crew. clean and comfortable."
Cons: "the food is not good at all (i had the vegetarian meal). the bread roll had mold on it. I would suggest boarding according to seats. when boarding all together you get stuck in line before and inside the plane itself."
Cons: "Lack of curtousey of some crew members!"
Did not have a good experience. They gave us connecting flights from London to Washington and then to Atlanta just because their flight was delayed from Hyderabad to London the flight from London was missed and even though it’s not passengers fault they had to suffer as they couldn’t give direct flight from London to Atlanta. And for vegetarians food is also so pathetic they need to have more vegetarian options as cold sandwiches is not a good option in winter. And just think how they feel if they have to be eating 3 cold meals for 24hrsin winter.
Pros: "We flew 1st class. The crew going over was AMAZING!!!!"
Cons: "LHR-ATL first class was awful. My spouse lost her seat to an aircrew member. (I'm very sick and we chose being across from each other for a reason). Boarding on both ends was horribly done. Last minute gate assignments, no crew, delay, boarded after coach. Hard bed, no service, crying baby"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cleanliness Pockets in seat all in disarray with crumpled dirty pamphlets and magazines. Felt unsanitary"
Cons: "Cramped, bad seats. Every time the guy in front of me shifted in his seat he bumped my knees and even sent my drink flying into my and my seatmate's laps."
Pros: "The staff on the plane could not have been more professional, courteous, and helpful. Not only did they serve me well, but perhaps even more importantly, they created a great atmosphere in the cabin with the cheerful, playful rapport they had with each other. I wanted to take them all out for a drink afterward!"
Pros: "The flight was on time.."
Cons: "The food.."
Pros: "Boarded quickly"
Cons: "Seat pitch was tight. If seat in front was reclined very little room to move. Meal could not be served until seat was put back up."

Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Cramped conditions."
Cons: "Too crowded in Business Class"

Pros: "Short flight - it was fine"
Cons: "All fine for short flight"
Cons: "Too much of time at security check in London. We almost missed our flight"
Pros: "Food and cabin crew were good"
Cons: "Cabin configuration in business is awful. Everyone has to step over, or be stepped over, to get to aisle. Seats are narrow (and I’m a small person!). Inflight entertainment is poor, and the touch screen is not very good."
Pros: "The staff were professional. Boarding was orderly. The flight was smooth. The lavatories were clean."
Cons: "As a tall man, even with an entire row to myself, it was impossible to be comfortable. I had to fold myself like origami to fit. My head and neck was pitched forward, even with the seat back reclined. You got me, next time I’ll spring for business class."
Pros: "Not much, maybe the food"
Cons: "Poor seats, terrible tv screens and entertainment options. I will not be traveling with BA again. Took forever to get on/off the plane"
Pros: "Crew were good, the food was mediocre when they served lunch - but then there was nothing more to eat until nearly the end of a 9 hour flight, by which time it was past 10.30pm back in London. At that point, all that was offered was half a sandwich and a biscuit."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment didn't work at first, and then when it started, kept on threatening to shut itself down every time I moved. The selection was ok but nothing compared to other airlines. The screen was tiny and low resolution. The seats were old - the same ones as when BA introduced their premium economy back in 2000. The aircraft was desperately in need of a refresh."
Pros: "non-stop flight"
Cons: "Poor space management in Terminal 5 boarding area. Lack of seats with plenty of open space."
Cons: "Terrible, horrible, humiliating, scammy experience at check-in. Will not be flying British Airways again."

Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Good, current entertainment selection. Ample beverages and foods (though nutrition concerns). Pleasant crew."
Cons: "80+ year old disabled person placed in aisle seat next to me (middle). She was sweet and thoughtful, but couldn't even rise from her seat without assistance. This pinned the window passenger and me in our seats for 8.5 hours with only one bathroom break -- the stuff out of nightmares and ABSOLUTELY UNFORGIVABLE! Of course, crew would not accommodate any changes. ** Why should I ever choose BA again? ** (Seriously, I'd like to hear your answer.) Food nutrition -- generally tasty, but carb-heavy, fatty and salty. A de facto salad meal option would have been appreciated."
Pros: "When I got off the fight."
Cons: "The boarding process is a mess. The flight crew is in total disarray. My friend beside me on the flight got the food 45 minutes before me. Then the second time they gave food out the last 5 rows didn’t get any bc they did bring enough. Just a total mess."
Pros: "The meals are delightful and the people are very respectful."
Cons: "Size of seats in economy"
Pros: "They need to improve confort and food choices! Overall: very good!"
Pros: "Seats are less hard than in other airlines (Delta comes to mind). Food was reasonably good. Crew was very attentive."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Pros: "The staff helpful and quick to respond."
Cons: "The incredibly uncomfortable, too narrow, too cramped seats with immovable armrests. Awful!!!"
Pros: "My gluten free meal was delivered and acceptable, the seats were comfortable and the crew was exceptionally helpful and friendly."
Cons: "After first class boarded, the remainder of the passengers lined up all at once. As it was a large plane, there were two entrances and it was hard for them to keep up and direct us to the proper door. It was a minot issue."
Pros: "Great entertainment system, and good food. Thank you for the free wine, blanket and pillow."
Cons: "Seats in the back are very uncomfortable. Seats are too close together. If the passenger in front reclines there is no room at all. I assume space was taken out to accommodate the first class cubes."
Cons: "Seats were way too uncomfortable for a trans atlantic flight. Our seats from atl to lhr were much better The crew didn't hand us customs forms in the back of the plane"
Cons: "The only International flight I ever paid extra for one 2nd baggage. That took away my savings on ticket, and never going to fly on British airways as long as they charge for 2nd checked in baggage."
Pros: "Liked the high life entertainment and the flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "I get a very limited amount of time to visit my girlfriend who is currently living back at home in England and spent nearly two hours sitting on the plane following the landing and then another two hours or so waiting for my bag to show up and finally filled out info to have it sent to me so that I wasn't wasting any further amount of time on a plane or in the airport. With limited service it was just an overall terrible experience, for my girlfriend even more so than me, as she began to get worried during the delay in the flight arrival up until I got into the airport and got service so that I was able to explain the delay and that I would be out soon. Which wasn't the case since I continued waiting for my bag to arrive for the next couple hours. What should've been a time of joy being reunited with my girlfriend turned into a time of stress for all involved and several hours overdue."
Cons: "Two children screaming their lungs out for the 8 hours, and kicking the seats in front of them. The fact that there was no food choice by the time I was served."
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "My seat covering was too short and plastic part exposed. Luckily empty seat was used to replace actual seat"
Pros: "The food was amazing actually. The seats were the most comfortable I've ever had and he entertainment choices were endless. The flight attendants took our requests graciously and were always helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Needs more airflow!!!! It got stuffy and warm."
Pros: "Amazing airline to travel I will definitely used again in the future"
Pros: "entertainment had a god variety"
Cons: "food was just awful"
Cons: "Paid for tickets in advance and were not given assigned seats until arrival at the airport. Were placed on standby as the flight was oversold. Thankfully we didn't miss the flight but this caused some unecessary stress."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Because it was short flight there was no food so I can't judge on the food"
Cons: "First of all, it was not Finnair it was British Airways, we had to walk on tarmac to plane and then carry our baggage up the steps, TV screen was old couldn't see it, did not get to pick my seat. Ended up sitting with some guys seat reclined almost in my lap for 9 hrs. Worst flight I have ever had!!!"
Pros: "Great overhead bin, good entertainment system, but I found that on both flights the screen touch screen is a bit off, I need to press on lower side of the button to get it work properly."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic from London. There was no call for regular passenger boarding."
Pros: "Crew was good food good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2.5 hours as they were taking out luggage of passengers who did not make it. Yet my baggage from my connecting flight did not make it and suppose to come 1 day later."
