Everything was good but they need to improve on time
Pros: "Staff were very good . Business class very comfortable. I had low salt menu which was very comforting to be able to choose as salt not good for me."
Pros: "The seating was very uncomfortable and cramped I"
Cons: "I’m really not sure. The seat felt like I was sitting on a rock and I had a lot of trouble moving so as not to disturb the person seated next to me."
Cons: "Flight was a little long!"
Pros: "The customer service was amazing. Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seats were too small to sit comfortably on a long flight I wish Qatar had better seats for long journey and had advanced entertainment system."
Pros: "Crews were excellent. Luggage came out very fast. Flight was very comfortable."
Pros: "Crew etc excellent"
Cons: "In flight WiFi expensive and not reliable"
Cons: "Delays twice which cost me lots of stress and taxi $"
Pros: "Crew was exceptional. QSuite very comfortable."
Cons: "Thank for everything it is excellent"
Pros: "nice crew, great service"
Cons: "During check-in, I observed inconsistent application of rules with respect to hand luggage. My carry-on and laptop bag combined were 12 kgs and was told that I had to pay excess baggage fees. While, there were quite a few people on the plane whose hand luggage was clearly above 12 kgs."
Pros: "Comfort in long foight was amazing. Never felt tired. Upgraded movie collection. Food was great."
Cons: "Carry on baggage allowance is way too low. Only 7kgs including laptop bag is too low for international travel. TV screens were a bit old enough and had to click multiple times."
Pros: "Q-suites and business class flight crew."
Cons: "Everything from check in up to boarding. Ground staff lacked hospitality. Disappointing frequent flyer program."
Cons: "For 1.5 kilo overwait I’ve been charged $65"
Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "The service of the cabin was great!"
Cons: "The food was not of the quality I would have expected from the expectation created by the airlines marketing. We boarded close to a full hour later than scheduled and the boarding process was very slow."
Pros: "The service on our flights was wonderful! Qatar is the best airline that I’ve ever flown on."
Cons: "Ord to Doh: People kept window blinds open all through 15 hour flight Flight temperature kept very warm"
Pros: "Best business class I have ever been on. Better than most First class."
Pros: "another whole row to myself which meant i slept for most of the flight. food was ok, not as good as on the first flight."
Cons: "headrest is no rest at all, very uncomfortable as it does not adjust other then up or down."
Cons: "Connecting Qatar flight should have been held, instead wen had to spend 9 hours in the airport until next flight"
Pros: "First it was a brand new airplane and only that but it came with good food selection and enough spaces for tall guys like me ."
Cons: "they need to do family section"
Cons: "Theyt cancelled my trip"
Pros: "From Joburg to Doha, the plane was clean and the food was good. . From Doha to Washington, not so much. I went to 3 bathrooms and all the sinks were stopped up."
Cons: "The food from Doha to Washington was beyond awful!!! I wud scrap that whole menu PLEASE. I WAS SEVERELY DISAPPINTED. The previous Quatar flight, the food was different and very good. Please check on this. Also, the sinks were stopped up. Gross."
Pros: "Qatar airlines had the nicest planes I have ever been on, not to mention the most beautiful and clean airport."
Pros: "The convenience because it goes to Nagpur directly"
Cons: "A very long flight. It was very tiring. Security check in Doha was unnecessary, because we already had it in nagpur"
Pros: "Being able to sleep."
Cons: "Food was not good. Rice was not fully cooked."
Cons: "Main course is not enough"
Pros: "The food was good. The legroom was enjoyable."
Cons: "I checked two bags and had them marked 'fragile', as I had valuables in there that I packed securely. When I retrieved the bags on the carousel, the fragile sticker was mangled, and both items from both bags were broken. Pieces of art I can not replace. Also, it took over 30 minutes upon multiple requests for the attendant to acknowledge my need for assistance."
Pros: "Excellent crew who were warm and attentive. Wide range of entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was disappointing. No western option despite it being a London bound flight."
Cons: "Lack of internet access is not acceptable during long flights."
Cons: "Lack of internet access is not acceptable during long flights."
Cons: "Food and behaviour of hostess serving in our line I.e. Seat 34 b & 34c"
Cons: "Transit time was too close with my connection"
Pros: "Airport staff."
Cons: "4 hour flight wolith no entertainment system and old aircraft was a huge drop I am frequent Qatar airways customer, and this flight was the worst"
Pros: "I have never had such an easy long distance flight. Hope to fly with Qatar again!"
Pros: "Like the friendly Crew ..."
Pros: "Good, newer wide body aircraft. Good service. No hassles, really. Would fly again. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Newest seating arrangement in 777 300 ER just too crammed. Used to be better. Nothing special about this flight, was expecting a little more space, a little less crowded, a bit better service. But my flight was short hop from BKK to HAN, last leg of flight originating in Doha."
Pros: "As the flight would be long (from Japan to Sao Paulo) they had the gentleness of putting us in the best seats well ahead that were available"
Pros: "Service was good."
Cons: "Need to provide more variety for vegetarian food. Cannot serve the same food for every meal on a long haul flight. Provide more entertainment options, more episodes of sitcoms, more movie options, more language options."
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and helpful, the flight left on time and even arrived early"
Cons: "Seat 10H, the transition from coach to business class could be designed a little better so the service carts don't hit the seat occupant when they move between cabins"
Pros: "Leg room. Free booze. Personalized attention"
Cons: "The thought of flying American carriers afterwards"
Cons: "The flight heading back from Scotland was delayed due to mechanical issues and we missed connecting flights. Although that being said, they did provide vouches until we knew the status of our plane."
The flight was ok, the baggage claim took almost 2 hours. :(
Pros: "Everything JetBlue has to offer."
Cons: "Offer water between snack time would be great."
Cons: "Flight attendants personality"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "Leg room was excellent, staff was excellent, you did charge for headphones but I brought my own (it would be nice to be given a heads up before I arrived though just in case I did not plan on bringing any."
Cons: "The TVs did not work or did not work well. I am sure you have flown on other airlines and have seen how their map locator works or have seen how you can start and stop movies or shows. I know you are a budget airline but this technology exists and yall ignore that but I am unsure of the reason."
Cons: "I booked a non stop flight but we had to stop at Salt Lake city for gas. We were over an hour late."
Cons: "No space for bag"
Pros: "Long Beach airport is awesome. Small quick easy. JetBlue is equally as awesome. Great customer service, reasonable prices, easy travel."
Cons: "Multiple delays getting out of the gate, no on-demand movies for a cross country flight, and a delay after we landed at a half-empty airport because "another aircraft is at our gate." Why can't you just go to an empty one then?"
Pros: "Leg room and comfortable."
Cons: "Kept cabin to warm for flight."
Pros: "Time was excellent"
Cons: "Snacks , why such small portion"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Unable to logon to Wi-Fi"
Pros: "Efficient boarding process and great leg room"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great and the food we purchased was reasonable. Some good movies."
Pros: "Entire flight was conducted professionally, plenty of leg room, aircraft appeared clean and well maintained, boarding and deplaning all went smoothly and all for a fair price"
Cons: "No seat plug for electronics. Boarding pass did not contain information about which terminal was needed for the connecting flight."
Pros: "The flight was very delayed due to weather, but the airline had us on the way as soon as possible. Safety first."
Cons: "I have no complaint."
Cons: "6 hour flight and crew only came down once for drink/food. I feel like there should be at least two passes on a flight this long! (Especially when it flies over dinner time). My reading light didn’t work so that was also a negative on a long flight."
Pros: "First time for me. I’m 6’6” and there was great leg room."
Cons: "At Long Beach jet blue clerk set off alarm super loud especially for kids. We waited for three people to board the plane causing delay, than when it came to snacks and drinks we only Received drinks. Connie served snacks to front half but not everyone else. Asked a flight attendant and she said if she had time. Never got it. Wanted it for my 5 year old."
Pros: "Closed Caption for deaf/hard of hearing people"
Cons: "Some movies don't have closed caption! That's not equal access! That's against ADA law!"
Pros: "Check in team was good with helping us check our bags"
Cons: "Every leg of the flights were delayed causing issues with our other travel (bus, etc.). Plane way extra delayed once everyone got on the plane because they needed to deliver food to the plane...which was only for purchase on a 6+ hour flight. Within reach of my seat 3 of the tvs didn't work. I probably won't fly JetBlue again if I don't have to."
Pros: "being able to board at the rear of the aircraft roomy leg room"
Cons: "As JetBlue has a video monitor, I think they should video tape the seat belt process what to do if the aircraft experiences difficulty instead of having the attendant's demonstrate - as depending on where you are seated you might not have a good view."
Pros: "Did not use entertainment, read a book instead. Flight attendants attention to passenger comfort was excellent. Promptly delivered fresh hot coffee. Dunkin’ Donuts, yay!"
Cons: "Flight was fine. Since I was in row 22, located four rows from the rear of the plane, I could have boarded earlier."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for at least 40 minutes because there was no copilot!!"
Pros: "The gate attendant was very helpful to intuitive put my young boys together with me and handed me new boarding passes when we arrived. We checked in two hours early and stood in security line for 1.5 hrs."
Cons: "The checkin and security process was horrible and all the staff was terribly rude."
Pros: "Great Landing, Friendly Service."
Pros: "Great leg room but paid xtra. Seat was somewhat uncomfortable. Great t.v. entertainment. Great stewardess."

Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Cons: "It was the worst experience of my life!!! They had delay because of mechanical problems, but the worst part was we boarded a plan and then they made us get off and boarded another. It’s was horrible"
Cons: "Flight delayed and service was poor, TVs didn’t work"
Cons: "It was delayed because of an iPad, this should not be a valid reason to delay a flight"
Cons: "Bad excuse for delayed flight since a flight took off from the same gate we were to leave from at the same time we were to fly. No refreshments for the delay Old airplane cabin not appealing"
Pros: "I liked how easy the whole standard process of check-in, boarding, seating, disembarking seemed to flow today. I particularly liked the Captain's greeting, the politeness of the presentation of the standard announcement, and the demeanor of the crew. It was all very professional. Compard to other carriers, these little differences made a noticable difference for me."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like. Some of the less the 5 star ratings are intended to mean good, not better or worse than other carriers."
Cons: "Flight ran about 30 minutes late."
Cons: "Delays delays delays"
Pros: "The flight attendants, specially on the way to NYC on the all nighter were amazing. The bathrooms were clean."
Cons: "The lack of food."
Pros: "The flight attendants and the overall feel."
Cons: "Not enough cushion on the seat even though I paid for the extra legroom a softer seat would have been better."

Cons: "The flight was very late."
Pros: "Free wifi"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no explanation why"
Pros: "The beautiful sterwardess"
Cons: "Flight delayed multiple times."
Pros: "Very good price. Very good cabin. Very good crew."

Pros: "The crew was great. Efficient, pleasant and funny."
Pros: "Great service as always!"
Pros: "Comfortable seating, pleasant food and entertainment."
Cons: "Not being charged $1200 for a ticket that I already bought, but had been voided with no notice. And Virgin Atlantic staff not friendly or helpful in any way with this situation."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The screen"
Cons: "Information on when we can check in on upcoming flights. Other airlines we have booked for flights will email us 24 hours prior to departure. Virgin Atlantic did not. I had to call and I was directed to their web site and was able to check in on line. Thanks"
Pros: "Speedy boarding and good locker space"
Cons: "Lack of room in seat especially with seat in front reclined."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Comfort. Seats were very uncomfortable with absolutely NO leg room. I fly a lot and this was one of the WORST leg room experiences I had."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Screens have poor color quality Seat too small Legroom cut into by electronics box Row 45 next to bathroom and no windows"
Pros: "Craig in first cabin flight crew was amazing. :))))"
Cons: "There was a medical issue and Virgin Atlantic refused to accept the ticket code - for any price - toward a new ticket. I paid for a new ticket and took another airline."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and effiecent. Had weather delays, bag got left, but got it the next day."
Pros: "Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Tiny, uncomfortable seats with warn cushions."
Cons: "We were bussed to the plane, there were long dark hairs on my pillow, and they are generous with snacks at close intervals, but the food could be much better. The ideas are cute, but the actual food is pretty basic, which is disappointing for Virgin, who I hold in high regard. Or did."
Pros: "Comfy, nice crew, attentive."
Pros: "The boarding was fast."
Cons: "For starters our cabin crew were the worst. The first service I had ask for a snack and no napkins. Dinner service was like just chucking food down in front of you. Then a stewardess looks me dead in the face and passed me for the drink service, then she said she thought I was asleep."
Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"
Pros: "modern comfortable plane, in flight entertainment was good, service was outstanding."
Cons: "food was meh at best, seats in economy are tight and there is no legroom"
Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"
Pros: "Everything about my flights on Virgin Atlantic was amazing. The plane was new and comfortable, the seats seemed to recline more than in other airplane I have been. The entertainment was good with a wide selection of movies and TV shows. The crew was incredibly nice and helpful and I had a really pleasant time talking with them. On the airport team side I can also say they were extremely helpful as I missed my flight and they promptly rebooked me on the next one 3h later, free of charge. I think the stress of missing a flight was completely deflected by the help of the Virgin Atlantic crew at the desk so thank you for that!"
Cons: "The only thing I would improve is the main dish in the meal. I loved all the small sides like the Boursin and crackers but I found the main meal a little bland l."
Cons: "Queue at boarding gate for upper class ticket holders Bus transfer to plane - Virgin is not a LoCo airline! Upper Class Service was slow - understaffed?"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The food was okay. There were more tasty options traveling to Heathrow versus from Heathrow to the NYC. The boarding process was a mess. We had to wait in an enormous line and then take a bus to the flight."
Pros: "We paid extra for exit row seats so we had good leg space"
Cons: "The seats are so small that only your backside fits on it and we are not big people. There is no support for the thigh and I had severe cramps after leaving the aircraft. The flight to LA with Virgin Australia was far more comfortable."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent!"
Cons: "I paid extra for Economy Delight seats for me and my wife. Shortly after take-off, our calm and comfortable more or less empty section of the aircraft was colonised by an extended family of Orthodox Jews in a kind of airborne West Bank situation. They weren’t in our section of the cabin at all to start with, and I don’t know why they were apparently able to get a free upgrade that I had to pay £100 for. We went from being in an almost empty cabin to being basically sat in the middle of an Orthodox Jewish kindergarten. It was awful! They were noisy, messy, were constantly getting in and out of their seats, the back of my seat kept getting kicked, and there was even a baby crawling around the aisle. We were surrounded. I have no idea whether this is characteristic of Orthodox Jewish family life, or just a completely inconsiderate family. They didn’t exactly ruin my flight, but they didn’t make it enjoyable either. I asked to be moved. The cabin crew were great and acknowledged the difficulty of the situation. My wife lost her window seat but at least we still had the legroom and peace and quiet."
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Seats and legroom poor if you’re six feet tall"
Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, excellent food and drinks. Very happy with the service we received"
Pros: "Checking in at the counter even I wasn't allocated a seat but the gentleman was very humble and polite."
Cons: "The fact that I was told I would be given a seat at the boarding gate. I got to the airport very early to get a good seat only to be that and was given a very uncomfortable seat where I couldn't stretch my legs well because of a box on the floor situated to my left leg and to make the matter even more annoying my screen was not working which I was forced to take one heavy meant-so-called laptop. And finally cabin crew were lacking serious customer service and when u ask for something they were just so reluctant to deliver as if we were given a free ticket or something. May it be noted that my ticket was not that cheap to be treated in such manner."
Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"
Cons: "Too much food - not enough time to sleep in comfort!"
Pros: "Great Service. Truly enjoyed Economy plus!"
Pros: "Quite a big choice of movies and TV shows to watch, more than enough for an eight hour flight. Normal headphone plugs so you can use your own."
Cons: "I booked together with my wife, yet we were allocated seats apart and were not able to be reassigned together. The leg room was so tight that I could not pick up things off the floor without putting my head in the next persons lap. Though the cabin crew were smiley and friendly, it was hard to get their attention when needed. The PA system is much louder than the entertainment, so announcements were ear bursting. The dinner selections ran out early, so a good proportion did not get their choice."
Cons: "Food was terrible"
Pros: "We really enjoyed flying with Virgin and so made sure we booked into a Virgin flight for this trip and not delta. The food was good, entertainment good when it worked."
Cons: "We got told that our flight number had changed from VS103 to VS4049 but still a Virgin flight. Only when we checked in we found out we were now flying with Delta and number was now DL285. Was not happy as wanted to fly with Virgin.The seats were ok but the entertainment system went down mid film. Took an hour to get started again. The games didn't work. Staff were a bit grumpy."
Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly and attentive. Flight was on time and we got to Atlanta early"
Cons: "Could do with more legroom. Food not the greatest"
Pros: "I was selected for additional screening at the gate. I have no problem with this at all. From the start I told them I am traveling with my fiancee. They tried to hold me back in a separate area after the screening and I once again told them my fiancee was waiting for me. One staff memeber walked with me half way back to get her and then disappeared. By the time I found her and came back, the staff memeber was no where to be found. Now we had lost are spot in the line and had to go to the back of the line. We spoke to 3 different staff people about what was going on and everyone said, oh the guy over there will help you. But no one did. The staff had No idea how to run a security check or handle paople. There was No working wifi! There was no tvs in the seats, only the old style in the aisle. The staff told me the plan was going to retire at the end of the month. The food was more for animals then for humans! We got updates by txt 10 mins before the staff updated the gate on our flight out from SFO. I have traveled all over the world with a lot of airlines and Never had such a poor service, but what is it to expect. It was United after all!"
Cons: "Refund of the whole flight."
Pros: "I had a great experience from start to end of my trip. Most of the staff were pleasant and professional. Food wasn't okay and red wine on flight from Heathrow was delicious."
Cons: "The red wine on the flight from Lagos was too sharp. That is the regular one served on virgin flight so was glad when I tasted the new one served on the flight from Heathrow, thinking it's been changed!"
Pros: "Did not take the flight in the end"
Cons: "My first leg flight was delayed and I booked through kayak on two different airlines and the first airline did not communicate with the second airline so 5 passengers ran to make the change and arrived 1 min after the jetbridge to get on the plane was pulled away. It was incredible frustrating and could have very easily been avoided with communication from the airlines"
Pros: "the crew were the friendliest I've flown with (Irish & British)... the lighting was very relaxing and the continuous snack service was much appreciated (especially ice cream).. gonna try premium economy next time as the seats looked even better..."
Cons: "Vera the entertainment screen was very good but there were no newly released movies, everything seemed to be a couple of months old... the leather headrest was comfortable but kept slipping down to behind my neck, would be nice if it was lockable in position.."
Pros: "Everything went very fast and smooth. I didn't have to queue for the boarding. The Sita were very comfortable, the crew very friendly and halepful and the selection of the movies A+."
Cons: "the child got the same food as us due i did not make clear i need a child food, now i am asking : is not clear that in that seat is a child of 4 years old ?"
Pros: "Aisle/window seating!"
Cons: "My entertainment unit did not work. I was graciously offered an iPad, but declined, however, the picture quality at my son's seat was also iffy. Both my long-haul flights had poor signage for toilets."
Pros: "Food was great, plenty of it also"
Cons: "I'm 6'4" and there was no acknowledgement by the crew that I was squashed into a tight seat."
Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."
Pros: "The whole flight was great quick boarding, lots of leg room, good entertainment, a USB charge port, good lighting, and the crew was very nice and helpful. I enjoyed the flight and would like to fly Virgin Atlantic more. Finally, you are the 3rd best flight, I have ever take, and the 2nd best airline I've been on. Flew Business Class on Swiss Air once to Geneva (#1) and all the flights I have had with Porter Air are comparable to your airline, but the free cookies and beverages at Porter's terminal in Toronto wonderful."
Cons: "A couple things went wrong on this trip, my checked luggage got misplaced for a day, and a nice women in baggage claim told me what was happening and a nice man handled my claim and my bag has now been returned to me. The bigger thing is my flight bas delayed taking off by 3 hours. Let me start that I would rather have a part replaced on the runway then not, safety is paramount. The fact is my flight took off 3 hours late from London (VS11), and got to my destination (BOS) 2.5 hours late. Kudos to the flight crew for getting me to my destination faster by gaining a little time. Plus, since BOSTON was my final destination it was all fine this time. But if I had had to get home to the elder person I take care of or my teenager it would been a problem. Again, I'm annoyed, but I do understand the reasons and they are valid and preferred. I have heard that airlines to keep their flight rating high, wait for planes to leave the gate on time and then do repairs on the tarmac. If this is still a SOP for airlines you should change the way the statistics are collected and figure out a way of not perpetuating this type of disincentive. This is just hypothesis on my part, and my whole trip had little negatives."
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic had a very attractive decor.Food was great& staff as well. Polite and professional ."
Cons: "The seat I had was a bit snug leg wise and recline wise. Could not get comfortable at all."
Cons: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."
Pros: "Seat Legroom Comfort Food Service Crew ... amazing!!!"
Pros: "The plane was very nice with great lighting. More food would have been nice as it was a long flight The crew were variable - most very helpful but one or two not so much"
Cons: "Not enough food for everyone and no snacks between meals, which was very bad considering it was a 10 hour flight Entertainment was great, seats were OK (certainly had worse)"
Pros: "Entertainment was okay, flight crew was nice"
Cons: "After checking in my wife and I were in separate seats. I was then unable to change my seat after check in. After calling the helpline I was informed that it is impossible to change the seat after checking in until I am at the airport. No other airline has such an obscure, in efficient rule. Virgin takes pride in being a step above their competition - I didn't see it. I have flown international on Delta, American Airlines, British Airlines, United, and others and any difference in the experience was negligible."
Delta does a great job in general. However, the “Comfort+“ seats weren’t worth the money. I sat in both seats, and I compared the width of the seats and the distance from the seat edge to the back of the seat in front of it. There was a difference of about 2” in the seat width and 1” in the leg room. Very disappointing.
Pros: "Like the pleasantries from the Delta crew"
Cons: "More snacks :) !!!!"
Pros: "Packed flight. Ground crew did best to minimize carryon luggage. Flight crew were accommodating and cheerful despite almost 1H delay in departure."
Cons: "Pilot had no control over turbulence during last 3H of flight. He did his best to minimize but still a jittery"
Pros: "Boarded in good time, friendly crew, flight was comfortable, entertainment was good - and most importantly, landed on time!"
Cons: "KAYAK did not informed us we have to pay for our luggage!"
Pros: "Food was great. Movie selection was good."
Cons: "When we booked our flight, we were not informed by KAYAK that we have to pay for our luggage! I t was very unpleasant surprise both ways."
Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing"
Pros: "Although we had to get a replacement plane due to fuel leak on the original, Delta accomplished the switch quickly and efficiently. The Captain came out to greet us, and the flight crew was pleasant, courteous, and professional."
Cons: "The little individual TV screens are tough to see for older eyes."
Cons: "Wifi was completely useless. I prefer to pay to get simething."
Pros: "I had an awesome seat 10a with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "It was as good as can be expected."
Pros: "Crew was nice. The tv/movie technology was fantastic!! Huge selection of movies that made the time fly by, and very easy to use as opposed to my other flight over. Food was good. I love that you get tons of food and drinks (more food than I could eat actually)."
Cons: "I couldn't get both of my boarding passes printed in London so I had to get it from an agent in Minneapolis. I hate that it's so hard to get a seat assigned and a boarding pass before the trip."
Pros: "Food was so good. Crew was also very nice."
Pros: "Entertainment and food and service were great."
Pros: "Amazing service and F&B offered was wonderful"

Pros: "Good crew, good service."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive. Smooth and comfortable flight."
Cons: "Seats are not as comfortable as usual, yet all flights seem to be getting worse regarding seat comfort. Time to start replacing."
Pros: "Everything. Food, staff, checking in. All were great"
Cons: "Would have preferred they let me choose a window seat. I wasn’t given the option"
Pros: "The crew were kind and courteous. The seat was comfortable."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The turbulence. Poor california git lits of smoke."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and reassuring. I’m not a frequent traveler and they kindness towards my anxiousness stood out."
Cons: "The bumpy air. But you can’t fix that. Lol."
Cons: "Crew was rude and made everything seem like a chore."
Pros: "Decent service"
Cons: "I booked with KLM (sky team) two separate return bookings on via SKY TEAM JFK > heathrow (delta) Heathrow > Amsterdam (klm) On the return leg, I couldn’t check my bag all the way through to JFK even though I stayed on SKY TEAM carriers. That should be possible, otherwise the value of staying in SKY TEAM isn’t as valuable to me."
Cons: "The worst flight I have ever been on. Sat on the plane for an hour before taking off with no AC"
Cons: "One of the older male flight attendants was not polite. Got a ride, short response when asking him for anything."
Pros: "Good films"
Cons: "Seats cramped, legroom bad"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of subtitles on available movies & series"
Cons: "For a 3 hour flight no onboard entertainment. Such a let down"
Pros: "Anna from South Africa was funny, and super accomidatinf"
Cons: "I had the feeling they were short on crew staff, they were barely checking and I called them a couple of times, the blue light was on but no one came to check what I needed. At first the reading lights were not working and they got those reset at least. One choice of food was not available anymore once they got to our seats."
Cons: "it stink inside the plane, the seats in front of us were dirty and smelled bad!"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and attentive. Boarding was good - efficient and quick."
Cons: "Seats were not that comfortable. Aircraft very noisy. Competition offers a much better service. Transfer in Atlanta was a nightmare, taking almost two hours from landing to getting to the domestic gate for the next sector. only three immigration staff working."
Pros: "The variety of what you could listen to or watch. Liked the way the seats reclined. Plenty of leg room (I am short)."
Pros: "Flight arrived early!!"
Pros: "There were alot of good movies to choose from, and the food wasn't bad."
Cons: "It's always very uncomfortable to sit on a plane for a long time, but that's nobody's fault"
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so the service was very good lots of food and snacks and we arrived early too"
Cons: "Music was a. Bit limited"
Pros: "Extra leg room with Sky priority"
Cons: "We upgraded to Sky priority but we're not allowed to load with Sky priority. They made us wait for Zone 3. We also did not get the designated overhead space we paid for and had to put our bags under the seat in front of us. A bit disappointing to pay $240 extra and not get what we paid for."
Pros: "accommodating and friendly staff food and drinks were good -I had a layover that was boarding before we had reached the terminal and the staff let me know and guided me about how to get to the other flight and let the other flight crew know so I wouldn't lose my flight. Super appreciative of this. :)"
Cons: "cramped seating warm / poor air circulation super hot in the cabin - this is probably because of Salt Lake City, rather than the plane though."
Cons: "The entry into the Atlanta airport after landing was somewhat chaotic. We were backed up circling before landing for ~ 1 hour and there seemed to be an unusually large number of folks trying to get through customs/security - noe Delta's fault but an unwelcome experience after being in the air for 8+ hours."
Pros: "Super friendly and attentive crew. Good food. Nice new seats. Great tv entertainment options!"
Pros: "I was able to do my check in and seat picking fast with no problem"
Cons: "A lot of the airport employees and staff negative and Grouchi mean attitude but does not take away nothing with the airline company staff very helpful and positive people"
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The wifi didn't work at all, the entertainment system wasn't working until they did a reboot during the flight"
Cons: "Overcrowded terminal, last minute gate changes, poor signage and confused staff."
Pros: "I like Delta empowering women."
Pros: "Daughter's first flight and the crew really made it a special experience for her."
Pros: "Service was good. Attendants polite. Information good."
Pros: "There wasn't much to like. Just about everything was wrong. The plane was a newish 787, so it didn't feel old. Boarding went well because we complained about how tired we, at 70+, were because the flight was late and we'd been standing up; this resulted in us being boarded with some of the latish priority passengers."
Cons: "Everything, really. The plane was very crowded; small seats, little leg room. The meals were mediocre and the cabin staff were just barely the good side of unhelpful, officious and unfriendly The flight was inexplicably 2 hours or more late in excellent weather. No apologies given, the flight that was originally scheduled for 8 pm left close to 11 pm. While boarding the only light is a purplish ambient lighting that made it impossible to read anything, including the safety material, until the inflight entertainment was loaded up (the lights are only controlled through software-actuated virtual buttons on the screen). The inflight entertainment system is hard to use, too, designed by idiots for use by geniuses. But the very worst thing was the stress caused by Virgin Atlantic in just about guaranteeing that we would miss this flight. On our outbound voyage in January, VA, for reasons nobody knows, booked an ADDITIONAL leg from JHB to CPT on BA at 12:30 pm, even though we were already ON the earlier 9:30 BA flight we'd booked and paid for. Then, when we didn't show up for this spurious flight (because we were already in the air) we didn't book (BA swears they have evidence that VA made this booking), our return flight CPT to JBG three months later was cancelled WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE. If I hadn't been interested in knowing, the day before the flight, if the return BA flight had a meal, I would have showed up at the CPT airport in April and discovered that I had no way to get to the VA flight in JHB! As it was I spent an entire day trying to get back on the flight I'd already paid for. I advise EVERYONE who uses VA to reconfirm flights over and over. There is still no explanation for this. I will never NEVER fly VA again. They are not to be trusted."
Pros: "The crew was polite but did not enforce social distancing when boarding. Disembarkation was chaos with everyone pushing to get off the plane."
Cons: "Calling people to board by rows would have made it less chaotic. Disembarkation was a dangerous disorganized mess."
Pros: "The crew and the seat !"
Cons: "The food because of coronavirus the service was scaled back"
Pros: "Efficient and on time."
Cons: "All fine."
Pros: "Everything. They were polite fast and never condescending to passengers."
Cons: "I could of wish they would have been a little more stern with some passengers."
Pros: "Food is not bad"
Cons: "The staff told us our carry-ons are over weighted and forced us to check in 2 carry-ons and charged us 250USD! Our carry-ons are totally standard-sized but just weighted more than 8 kg. We have never encountered any airlines would rob costomers like this! Will NEVER ever fly Turkish airline again!"
Pros: "check in..Gatwick S."
Cons: "cramped, breakfast was a disgust.tasteless omelette,soggy sandwich. a disgrace."
Pros: "Really like the airline, sat in the front rim of economy. My husband is over 6ft and he was happy with the leg space. As was I since we flew right our 1 and a half year old boy."
Pros: "Good crew. Clean"
Cons: "A little late"
Pros: "plenty of food that was good quality, lots of entertainment options, usb to charge. flight attendants very nice and helpful. one of the best international flights in a while."
Cons: "seats recline so much that when the person is reclined in front of you, almost like they're laying in your lap! but this can also be nice for your own reclining."
Pros: "Once my wife reached the gate, having left me behind at security, Turkish Airlines waited and were patient with us, the last to board the plane. The food and plane and bathrooms were all without any problems."
Cons: "We had a 80 minute layover in Frankfurt. Turkish Airlines should make note that this is not sufficient for making a connection. 1. The terminals require extensive walking. Not a problem except for time. 2. Security entering the terminal was seriously understaffed. There were a hundred security personnel, but thousands of passengers. The line stretched for half a mile. 3. Cutting, disorganization, mismanagement, lack of organization, and airport layout all contributed to making this a very stressful hour for us."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Service was very slow. Only one person was serving. We had dinner at 10:15 pm and they did not had some of the beverages that were on the menu"
Pros: "Entertainment options good"
Pros: "Largely pain free experience"
Pros: "Excellent food"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic"

Cons: "Seat adjustments on both our seats in Business Class were not working!!"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful & friendly. Cabin was well pressurized."
Pros: "Flight cancelled on whim of pilot due to a single faulty toilet."
Pros: "There is simply nothing to like. Whilst other airlines give peoooe a nice hotel room to spend the night on their trunk flights, Turkish airlines offers."
Cons: "I didn’t like anything not least the fact you make people wait in the station when they are on flights with stops. It Morocco offers a plush hotel room. I’m never travelling"
Pros: "I loved the amount of attention and consoling that was given to an ailing elderly woman on my flight to Turkey! On my flight to Ghana the attendants were so gentle and provided a lot of ammenities. Oh and the hotel was an amazing experience and respite especially after the run-around at the airport. Thank you"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the run-around I was given in trying to find the hotel desk. “50 meters then turn left” was the anthem. All someone had to say was go outside the airport and you’ll find the hotel desk! Hehe thank you Turkish Airlines however! Thank you."
Cons: "I could not use my ticket I was trying to extension date but customer services terrible"
Pros: "The crew were accommodating, we departed on time, the inflight food was good and the entertaiment was varied."
Cons: "The leg room was a bit limited on long flight."

Cons: "Seats horrible, food not eatable, poor service"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Departure delay"
Cons: "I had my flight from London to Istanbul delayed and because I had connection flight in Istanbul to Russia they had to change my flight for the next day . That ruined my whole holidays and I had to go all the way home from Gatwick airport and next morning going again to Heathrow airport. No transfer or taxi was provided and No single apology from the staff or company . Very disappointed with Turkish airlines !"
Pros: "I like the food which were served, I like everything overal"
Pros: "Many movies to watch. There are news channels like CNN to keep you updated with what las happening in the world."
Cons: "We had a connection at Istanbul. No laptop or notebook was allowed. A small portable charger to my iPhone was confisticated even thought it is smaller than my iPhone. Turkish TSA seemed a little confused with what to confisticate. They almost took away my portable shaver too. There were 4 little kids running around aisle during the flight forcing me to watch movies instead of sleep crossing the Atlantic Ocean."
Pros: "Meals, drinks, movies, night kits, blankets, pillows, all included in ptice."
Cons: "To whom this may concern: I am writing to express my absolute dissatisfaction and poor experience with the customer service and lack of working amenities on flight #TK11 leaving Istanbul into New York City, JFK. It was sadly a horrible ending to my trip and left me with a very unfortunate impression of Turkish Airlines. Less than an hour into the flight I spoke with a flight attendant making him aware that the USB port was not working so I was unable to charge my phone the entire flight. In addition, the wifi was not working. This is a huge problem because I planned on working remotely that day and my job was under the same presumption. The attendant blamed my phone and did not take my word that I was unable to connect until I insisted further and another passenger in front of me turned to my rescue and agreed with me stating the wifi was spotty and only worked for a short period of time until ultimately shutting off. The attendant did not apologize but said he would check on the port and the wifi and would get back to me. I followed up several times and he fed me the same lines until I grew frustrated that I was being completely ignored all while losing a day's work. During the last 20 minutes of the flight I decided to finally walk to the back of the plane and follow up for the last time with someone else. I explained the situation to the other attendant who seemed as though this was the first time he was hearing about this issue and he spoke to his chief who gave me a customer feedback form to fill out. No one offered me a different window seat to fix the port problem or even Miles Plus points for the inconvenience even though I requested it. I have never felt more disrespected and dismissed on a flight before this experience. As a star alliance member (CX765361), I frequently fly for work and personal trips and out of loyalty and assurance that I would be able to fulfill my work duties remotely given the features this airline promotes. I chose Turkish Airlines because it was apart of this program. This experience did not uphold the company's reputation and by flying with Turkish Airlines I completely missed a full day's work, deadlines and was behind when I physically returned to work. For the inconvenience, stress, disrespect and empty promises, I am requesting that Turkish Airlines reimburse me the portion of that flight. Best, Rachael"
Pros: "No real issues, we were served a decent meal, plane was new and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "Flight was severely delayed, not due to any fault of the airline but we were left sitting on board for 90 minutes with very little information m."
Pros: "The airline was very hospitable and efficient. All flights were on time, boarding and de-boarding were very quick and painless. Crew was extremely helpful and kind. Food was good, seats were comfortable, and entertainment was good. For the money and time spent on this flight we felt we got an extremely good deal and would take this airline again, and recommend."
Cons: "The planes were pretty warm/hot for most of our flights. I'm not sure if air condition was available, but I know some people asked. It did cool down eventually so they must have turned on air or fans, but I know the heat was on at some points which made it a bit uncomfortable for such a long flight."
Cons: "The additional security check for flight from Istanbul to US was somewhat unpleasant as women were called out from the line to be separated from men for security check. They should have wait for each family to come up for their turn to be checked, so families would not need to be separated for a while."
Pros: "Exceptionally nice crew, outstanding amenities, best food I've ever had on an airplane. I especially liked having the option of traditional Turkish fare."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been more organized. I had a business class ticket and could not find the priority boarding line. The first ground crew member I asked was abrupt and sent me to the back of the long line. I caught the attention of a different crew member and he motioned me to the front of the line--it was a little awkward saying "excuse me" to each person that I passed. (I am not used to being a priority passenger!) Once my documents were cleared and my carry-on was inspected at the gate, it was not clear whether to take a seat or to go somewhere else."
Pros: "Better food and service than other airlines on which I've traveled recently. Loading passengers was disciplined and speedy. Staff very helpful. Istanbul airport is great for a long wait. If you go to a gate waiting area with no flight soon, you can stretch out and sleep. Good English-language bookstore."
Cons: "We ran to the gate but we're turned away and spent 3 hours getting rebooked and to a hotel for the night."
Cons: "I have bought two sides ticket from Turkish Airlines. And i miss my first flight, when i came to airport for return flight Turkish Airlines cancel my return flight whitout update by email or massage by phon!!"
Pros: "I ve travelled many times on Qatar ,Emirates,and jordanian air lines but the Turkish was the poorest and the worst .A limited choices and little food ,and these people on the airplane donot do their jobs properly .I hope it will be better next time if there is a next time ."
Pros: "The entertainment choice and availability of USB port for charging was excellent."
Cons: "This leg of both of our flights (going and return) was quite cramped. Due to an unfortunate delay on our return flight, our overall day was extended from ~8 hours to 16 hours, and had us flying through the night--very unexpected and tiring. Additionally, although we requested kosher meals well in advance, the delay/cancellation of our flights and rebooking effectively cancelled our kosher meals and there was nothing for us to eat. This was very frustrating."
Pros: "Other than the late departure, everything else was excellent."
Cons: "Just the fact that we were some 40 minutes late, and this created panic among those passengers who had tight connections to Tehran, Tel-Aviv and Tbilisi. The rest was excellent!"
Pros: "surpassed our expectation"
Pros: "Everything, Turkish is great."
Pros: "Good, entairtenment, service"
Cons: "These was a delay on my first flight, and i almost lost my connecting flight. The had us running like crazy on instabul airport, and the employee didnt even know which gate we were supposed to go. This is the second time i had the same issue with turkish. The seats were very narrow and it was impossible to fit on there. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "flight was exactly as scheduled, flight attendance were extremly helpful and polite, food was good."
