Pros: "everything was perfect"
Pros: "(see above)"
Cons: "(see above)"
Pros: "never turkish airlines ever again!"
Cons: "never turkish airlines ever again!"
Cons: "The airport staff in Istanbul was horrible. Wouldn't help find the gate until the last second. After arriving in JFK. We're stuck on plane on tarmac for 3.5 hours "waiting for a gate" unacceptable."
Pros: "I am not blaming the airline at all for these inconveniences."
Cons: "NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CRITIC OF THE AIRLINE Having personally experienced the latest in the consequences of travel related rules mandated by US public officials, I am yet again left wondering if they, and their families, go through these rules that they impose on the general public. Or if they just breeze into their private airport wings and planes. I doubt they take off shoes, belts, and such, or go through irradiated machines. But going through about 3 extra layers of security while transiting is a bit much. Not to mention the extra hours spent relinquishing and reclaiming laptops etc. Frankly, non of these acts makes anything safer. It is akin to the permanently parked police vehicle on the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC since 9-11. What is that supposed to deter?"
Pros: "Interior of the plane"
Cons: "It wasn't communicated beforehand to check in our baggage to electronics."
Pros: "Attentiveness of staff."
Cons: "The check-in was quite hectic."
Pros: "Almost everything from boarding till landing."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that people need to wait in the bus shuttle too long. It's just better to let people wait at the gate and ride them to the plane when it's 100% ready."
Cons: "Luggage was held back in Istanbul. It was broken into and never made it to NYC. They shipped to Texas at which point it had been opened and rifled through. Unprofessional."
Pros: "Wonderful experience"
Cons: "Lost my bag. Again no gate number from Instambul to NY."
Pros: "There were a lot of very good experiences with Turkish Air. I was pleasantly surprised how friendly and courteous the staff was. Overall, the trip was a pleasure. I would fly with Turkish Air again."
Cons: "Very good"
Cons: "According to the menu we were supposed to have a choice of chicken or eggplants. When it was my turn - it turned out that there was no chicken left. Fine. Eggplants with some kind of lasagna. This lasagna was just old! Old and dry. And cold. It was definitely not fresh. I asked to warm it up. Got another one. Which was not better actually. That was really annoying. Only after one more complaint I was offered some kosher (and now really good) meal instead."
Cons: "Everything good"
Cons: "Very very cramped"
Cons: "Need more vegetarian options"
Pros: "All amazing"
Cons: "My new iphone was stolen off the plane. I have complained to the turkish airline people. They tell me fill out feed back forms. I did no response yet. I want to be compensated for my stolen phone"
Pros: "My mother's luggage was lost and arrived to us ripped the next day and i emailed them yet no compensation has been made and no one has replied to the email."
Cons: "Late baggage"
Pros: "I have been flying with Turkish Airline for over 24 years. And they are the best ever. If they have flights to my destination I sure fly with them."
Pros: "US government sends out travel advisories in timely fashion"
Cons: "Turkish airlines is overwhelmed with schedule changes. They behave in a manner not respecting the gravity of the situation and the need for people to get home. For example, they rescheduled our flights but did not confirm or ticket our flights. They should use all resources to get us home but won't let us fly on Star Alliance code share flights."
Pros: "Good in general"
Cons: "Delayed flights"
Pros: "I like every thing"
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Departed late, landed late, baggage claim took over an hour and half"
Pros: "All was ok"

Cons: "See above"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Neverrrrr againnnnn!!!!!!!with Turkish airlines"
Pros: "Meals, pillows and blankets, and the pouches with the slippers, toothpaste, etc."
Pros: "Priority lounge access made 12 hour layover less unbearable."
Cons: "Missing tray table. Was allowed to keep my bag for takeoff but not for landing. Defective headphones (three pairs). Long waits for lavatories. Animals in main cabin. No ability to turn off main cabin screen while landing. Neighbor vomited due to roughness of landing. And the 12 hour layover (CDG-IST-JFK) was pretty harsh, though not as bad as 16 in the other direction."
Cons: "Similar issues as described above"
Cons: "The airport"
Pros: "The planes were well maintained. Good entertain emend choices. Food was decent too"
Cons: "Asked for ONE piece of bread, and such a big company. Didn’t have ONE piece of bread to provide. Shame. But not surprised, considering the focus they had with onboard shopping, cut coat, and generate revenue very oriented."
Pros: "The food/drinks"
Pros: "It was cancelled and scheduled next day"
Cons: "See above. What a disaster!"
Pros: "Attentive and friendly staff, great food and plenty of drinks!!!"
Cons: "The airport pretty much shut down for awhile so some flights were canceled. Due to the number of people attempting to check in and go through security, I missed my plane and was rebooked in an economy seat. These glitches occur but one would expect Lufthansa to have had a plan to deliver clear directions."
Cons: "See above. Going both ways..."
Pros: "Relaxed trip. We were well cared for. Again very good staff"
Pros: "Family check-in in Frankfurt is superb. Economy Plus was a really great experience!"
Cons: "The fact that I can't use my own headphones and I'm forced to use the cheap airline-provided ones (with the dual plugs). Single biggest reason to not fly Lufthansa, because I can't enjoy the movies!"
Pros: "Still use silverware and provide blankets, pillows, headphones, nice clean plane"
Cons: "The tv monitor had very limited options and froze about every 5 minutes. The screen was either very unresponsive or would freeze"
Pros: "Unlike the rest of the plane, row 34 is big enough to fit human beings, so this flight was great. Crew are nice."
Cons: "Every single seat in coach except row 34 or 27"
Cons: "Pretty good. Great crew."
Pros: "Everything in order and on time."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised to be offered an after dinner brandy, or a Bailey's. O"
Cons: "On both flights. The ear phone did not work correctly. Minor issue."
Pros: "WiFi access"
Pros: "Food on flight lags a bit behind other major airlines. Crew very nice and helpful though."
Cons: "Boarding process at Tegel is archaic and inefficient. Gate area too small and without access to shops/restaurants/etc."
Pros: "Multiple bathrooms located downstairs. Modern new plane"
Cons: "Movies were old. No real new releases. Food was terrible"
Pros: "Crew !!!"
Cons: "Very long distance to gate Z 69 with no time to cost my knee pain !!!"
Cons: "Tv didn't work most of time. Food was terrible."
Pros: "Good overall experience"
Pros: "I like that the flight crew did the best they could to make sure my husband and I were sitting together with one child."
Cons: "I did like that my whole family including two children 2 ad 6 were sitting all separately all over the plane. Children 12 and under should not be seated separately. And that should be the job during the check in. Not during birding."
Cons: "crew was not friendly"
Pros: "I was able to squeeze back into Comfort Economy and make my destination, after a messed up miles upgrade - have to be grateful for the small things, right?"
Cons: "I was actually upgraded to Business Class through a LH miles award, however, that upgrade was not honored, despite the fact that I had a confirmation email from them. I had to first get to Frankfurt to even negotiate this problem. At the departure point, LH was unable to furnish me a boarding pass to my NY flight. After racing though the huge airport at max speed to make this connection, I was treated rudely at the gate in Frankfurt by LH short tempered ground staff, to the point of even being accused of being the source of the problem and being late for boarding (when I was only accorded an hour connection through this booking, and raised this concern with LH prior). Lastly, the ground crew took away my connecting flight boarding pass and nearly forgot to give me back my luggage tag. The flight crew was Ok, but just did a bare minimum to keep up with the packed and overbooked flight. To top of the joy, I got food poisoning after landing in NYC - not all food they serve was in sealed containers, and it must have been enough to cause a day of misery that followed my arrival - I can assure you that the late time and taxing and docking delays in NYC took away any opportunity to have a normal dinner, and LH food was all I had all day... Not the usual LH experience, but I may give them a break for the next few trips."
Pros: "Great flying on an A380"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."
Cons: "There were no options for food, I was just told that there was only pasta left while the passenger next to me ate chicken. This was totally unacceptable. I only hope that this was my last trip with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Professional, friendly, helpful staff in a new, quiet plane (A380-800). Smooth landing. Easy disembarkment despite approximately 500 passengers from a large aircraft."
Cons: "Unreliable domestic Lufthansa flights (in Germany) connected to this international one, and the departure time history for this LH400 proved typical for this flight, which ultimately left nearly 2 hours late despite good local weather. An announcement cited technical difficulties with the originally scheduled plane. Several small groups we recognized from embarkation on this LH400 flight filed lost luggage claims, as we did. Uncharacteristically bad planning by LH on food choices left our rows near the front of Economy without a choice of meals: only pasta, tasty though it was, was available. The chicken option was gone. The flight status video program function did not work for anybody near us despite three equipment restarts by the crew."
Pros: "The chicken, potatos and spinach dish was the best. I like that they have you a pillow, cover, and headphones."
Cons: "At first the movies worked then they did a reset and my audio stopped working and they did another reset when I let an attendant know about it and it still didn't work. They never came back for me to let them know about the problem."
Pros: "They waited for those who were running late due to a previous flight delay. The crew was super friendly and there was great movie suggestions."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulance which made a lot of the passengers sick. I think also that they collected the headphones too early like 45 mins/1 hour too early before landing. Also landing felt like it was the longest landing in my life."
Cons: "See comments above."
Pros: "I think everything was first class, specially the CREW."
Pros: "Decent flight. Nice crew. Clean cabin."
Cons: "We booked these flights expecting Lufthansa. Little disappointed to learn they were Brussels airlines. Inflight entertainment options and meal options don't seem to be as good. Flight crew was pleasant and fine. After learning it was Brussels airlines I went through their check-in process for families and requested kid-friendly meals, but nothing came of it. Slightly disappointed."
Pros: "Great crew very attentive."
Cons: "Plane was old. Toilets were an issue. Entertainment centers were slow. Time to retire the, 747's"
Cons: "staying 11h with no assistant"
Pros: "The whole experience was GREAT!"
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable"
Cons: "They change the gate for transfer last minute"
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Everyone kind of ran up."

Pros: "Pleasantly greeted"

Cons: "same JFK with always delayed unboarding, wait for the gate and luggage, long lines to everything"
Pros: "Free upgrade to business class!"
Pros: "The crew was very professional and kind."
Cons: "The layover in Frankfurt was too short (45 min) and the delay of the flight Milan- Frankfurt did not help; I had to run to catch my flight to NY. And in addition, my baggage went lost"
Pros: "The flight crew was wonderful! Friendly and really attentive the whole trip!"
Pros: "They had lots of movies and TV options to choose from."
Cons: "The vegetarian option was very poor. Frankly a pizza snack in place of supper is not what I expect on a cross-Atlantic flight."
Pros: "The pasta offered at lunch was tasty."
Cons: "The snack which was described as pizza had a really bad taste and this offering should be discontinued and something that tastes better should be offered."
Cons: "Very slow boarding. No overhead space."
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "It was fine with me."
Cons: "Old plan with old seats and no individual screens. Very disappointing for a major airline! I wish I know it before buying my ticket."
Cons: "It was FREEZING. Uncomfortably so that we were unable to sleep."
Cons: "Antiquated entertainment system. Lack of a/c power outlets at each seat."

Pros: "The service was super"
Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "1. No individual monitors. The pull down shared monitors are antiquated and not the standard now. 2. Would not fly AA from SJU again because of this. Unless I preloaded my iPad with movies."

Pros: "It got there on time!"
Cons: "I would never fly with them again, the staff were rude and you must pay for everything, at least let people us the WiFi"
Cons: "I booked on BA I ended up on AA. US carriers to Europe gives inferior service vis a vis the competition if i wanted a US carrier I would have booked one. It was bait & switch. Compared to whats available in entertainment & comfort on flights, this was like a hires & buggy"
Pros: "2:30 h late!"

Pros: "The food, air crew respectful and dedicated to duty"
Cons: "Everything was perfectly ok"
Pros: "Nothing noteworthy was done well."
Cons: "The boarding staff is incompetent resulting in a 2+ hour boarding time. No control or concern for boarding zones, multiple unnecessary and inconsistent ticket checks, and unclear process. If you took 300 toddlers, made 50 of them gate agents and said board an airplane, you would get about the same result. Food and crew in flight were mediocre. Entertainment system in the seat back doesn’t work, shuts off in the middle of films, and is for some reason controlled by the wrong arm rest. I was in the aisle seat, my arm rest control panel did not control anything, but every time my neighbor shifted her arm it changed the volume on my system. Ethiopian airlines is what failure looks like."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Serve Warm food"
Cons: "Punctuality. Time is off the essence."
Cons: "1 hr delay in departure from Lusaka. Plastic cutlery was difficult to eat with. More frequent water/drinks during the flight (or water bottles instead of little cups) would have been appreciated. Movie options were not as great as other airlines."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic! The one meal from Athens to Cairo was excellent, the other two meals weren’t too bad but not as good as the first one."
Cons: "The security in Cairo was really a joke."
Pros: "Food and drink was good."
Cons: "Every single flight (4 total) took off late and even caused us to miss a connection. On the way to Madrid from Entebbe, my luggage was mislabeled and sent to London and now is completely lost. It has been two days of a trip of having no clothes, shoes, or toiletries other than what I had on my person. And I have yet to hear from anyone with Ethiopian Airlines, only representatives from Madrid airport."
Pros: "Crew were very good. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Choice of movies could be much better."
Pros: "The landing was smooth and so was the whole flight! Loved it"
Cons: "Food. I ended up throwing up shortly after eating"
Pros: "The flight was four hours delayed in Djibouti and there was absolutely zero, NO communication, whatsoever, provided by the Djibouti Ethiopian Airlines staff what was going on, how long the flight was going to be delayed, or if it was actually complete canceled for that evening."
Cons: "Flight ET365 was scheduled to leave Djibouti at 19:00 but did not leave until 23:30, without any screen information or by the Ethiopian Airlines staff at JIB airport how long the delay would be or if the flight was completely cancelled. Extremely unprofessional and ignorant handling of the situation"
Pros: "Seats small uncomfortable"
Cons: "Bigger seats."
Pros: "crammed seats, meh food first experience with ethiopian, wasn't great"
Pros: "It was perfect to me , im in so much pain spiritually and you guys makes me feel home."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "The staff and flight attendants were pleasant. Good entertainment and comfortable enough seats."
Cons: "I wasn't looking forward to the 11 hour flight, however the 4+ hour delay was a significant inconvenience. We were on the tarmac in Abidjan for almost an hour, before we were informed that there were some technical issues. We were told it was a minor issue, until clearly it was a large enough issue as a lot of time passed by. Air stopped flowing so many passengers including myself became uncomfortably hot and dehydrated. The flight attendants only came down the aisle once with water, which was not considerate enough given that the air stopped flowing. Finally close to two hours later passengers we instructed to disembark without mention of how long the wait would be. We re-boarded the flight after about an hour and only then were informed that there was not enough power to fly the plane. Once we took off the air flow returned and the flight overall was pleasant. While safety of course is a priority, especially for a long overnight flight, communication could have been much better."
Pros: "I liked they’re fury free in flight shopping, very nice affordable pieces of jewelry and perfumes"
Cons: "They weighed my carryon! I haven’t seen any other airline do that before. I flew with them 3 times this year, 13 hour each flight and the entertainment was not the best. They didn’t have enough current movies or tv shows. The food was bland. Coffee cups were plastic and it burnt my finger."
Pros: "Customer care was good"
Cons: "I suspect the problem of luggage started with Alitalia my first leg"
Cons: "The orderliness during boarding needs more work"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Staff needs to be briefed on what an insulin pump is."
Pros: "Everything was to my satisfaction."
Pros: "Having never even heard of Ethiopian Airline, our expectations weren’t very high. We found the boarding process to work well. The staff was great and the meals were very good. The flights were on time and efficient."
Cons: "On many of the flights we had to use the roll up stairs. The water that they served tasted like tap water. The seats seem closer (less leg room) than other airlines."
Pros: "Cheap fare, no frills."
Cons: "Too hot, crew isn’t friendly (could be cultural difference), jam packed flight with tons of small children so was unlikely to ever be super pleasant."
Cons: "No kosher food eventhogh we asked for it"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Everything was bad, very upset !"
Pros: "The cabin crew did a good job of managing all sorts of issues, and they had a lot to deal with. People switching seats, refusing to get up from wrong seats, oversized carry on, personal hygiene. The crew did their job professionally and with a smile. Made big impression. I did have a much different and better experience going from ADD to BKK"
Cons: "The food, comfort and entertainment on this plane was below OK. The monitors were unresponsive to touch, antiquated ear phone/ plug system and the seats were nasty, covered in a cloth material and disgusting! On some seats you can see stains that will not come out. Ever. The food was....airline food."
Pros: "Great service Seats slide forward, so comfy! Food and drinks all night On time Lots of luggage"
Cons: "No sleep with my baby!! ;)"
Pros: "צוות אדיב ורגיש לנוסעים ויעיל"
Cons: "האוכל לא היה מגוון לא הכיל פירות או ירקות טריים , היה מבוסס על אורז ופחמימות, לא הוקרן מסךמסלול הטיסה, לא היו אזניות זמינות"
Pros: "הצוות היה נעים, רגיש ואדיב"
Cons: "האוכל לא היה טעים או מגוון, חסרו ירקות טריים או פירות מרעננים , האוכל היה מבוסס על פחמימות לא היו אזניות זמינות, לא הוקרן מסך של מסלול הטיסה , ונתוני הטיסה,"
Cons: "Airport in ADS was very basic. Was hard to find a descent toilet"
Cons: "Delayed without explanation or heads up"
Pros: "Very helpful, attentive and kind cabin staff."
Cons: "Somewhat dirty ( and smelly ) aircraft even though they are a very new fleet. Some seats had strange patches and stains. Overall cabin experience can be improved in terms of hygiene and food quality ( food was mediocre or slightly worse). Seat ahead reclines almost too much into personal space in the new 787 aircraft. The LCD displays don't pivot so it's virtually impossible to view the entertainment when the occupant of the seat in front fully reclines ( a somewhat irritating issue on a long flight )"
Pros: "The take was very smooth."
Cons: "The seats did not recline & I had a back problem"
Pros: "The Ethiopian Air flight crew are outstanding at their work."
Cons: "Not enough water. The water is doled out in small cups."
Pros: "Friendly crew very responsive."
Pros: "The Ethiopians have got the transit sorted in Addis. I had a tight turnaround time of about an hour and 15 minutes. From alighting to boarding and takeoff was about 1 hour. Very impressed that my luggage made it as well."
Cons: "Luggage was lost"
Cons: "It was a night flight (~4-5 hours), however, 80% the time the lights were on... people did not want to eat/drink... and get disturbed constantly by the crew. We just wanted to sleep. Without lights"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "My daughter's entertainment system crashed after 20 minutes. She ended up sleeping so I watched a movie. When she woke up, we were going to switch seats, but I tried to turn it back on and mine wasn't working. (By the end of the flight, only maybe 10-20% were using theirs as many others crashed as well.) The food was very boring. At one point I was looking for a flight attendant and couldn't find a single one anywhere in coach."
Pros: "Would have liked to have seen more of the cabin crew, but they were pleasant."
Cons: "Food choice was limited. Ethiopian often ran out of meals and just gave me whatever option they had left. Entertainment system didn't always work properly."
Pros: "The best flight ever and the crew is super cool"
Pros: "Flight was delayed over two hours, because of shortage of aviation fule causing delay in fuelling aircraft"
Cons: "food, service"
Pros: "Staff were pleasant"
Cons: "One segment of my flight did not have the gluten free meal I had requested ahead of time. Super crowded."
Pros: "The crew were friendly"
Cons: "crew was the worst part. Id have to ask for something 3 or 4 times before i got it. couldnt really understand why a simple request like tea instead of soda was so difficult to fulfill."
Pros: "Dreamliner is a great plane"
Cons: "My luggage didn't make my connection. Came 2 days later though."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant. Overall servive was good. Boarding well organized,"
Cons: "Wasn't comfortable. Should improve on food. No entertaient during flight,"
Pros: "Clean, new airline. Comfortable"
Cons: "Kosher food was poor. I know there are higher quality options from Israel, Johannesburg, Frankfurt, etc. This meal was from Antwerp and was not nice at all."
Pros: "The crew was great and the food was pretty good (in addition to lunch/dinner, they offered multiple snacks and drink service throughout)."
Cons: "The boarding could definitely be better - customs and an additional security check before the gate was a bit much and caused the flight to depart over 15 minutes late."
Pros: "Crew was okay."
Cons: "That your airline commit to schedules."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "The entaertainment system, TV , movies etc, wasn’t working and they tried and tried but couldn’t get it to work. Not a common occurrence I am sure."
Cons: "Wasn’t given a blanket"
Pros: "Good Staff, Good Service, On Time Departure and Arrival"
Cons: "The ticket price was so expensive"
Cons: "It was very cold they need to lower the temperature."
Cons: "You are considered as a robber but it is inscribe nowhere you don’t have luggage"
Cons: "There is not much variety of what to watch- movies/tv. For a long flight it is a nightmare"
Pros: "The flight and services were OK, the only bad thing - my baggage did not arrive David Silberman"
Pros: "Great wheel chair service"
Cons: "Polite customer service agent"
Pros: "The on board staff was very nice. That's pretty much the only thing that I liked."
Cons: "Just about everything. Not only were both flights delayed, one without notice, both the check-in and boarding processes were obscenely long with no obvious reason. On board, the staff was very pleasant but took almost 20 minutes to respond to a page and I only paged them one time. The screens for entertainment had a lot of trouble reading touch for both my seatmate and I and the selections were very limited. My seat did not recline which made for a very uncomfortable flight as I had hoped to be able to sleep. They lost one of my bags and somehow still have not found it more than 36 hours later."
Pros: "The flight crew was accommodating and genuinely worked to meet passenger needs during the boarding process and also while I'm flight. The flight entertainment included a good, and varied set of options."
Cons: "1. There is a security check just prior to boarding at the gate in Brussels that is not known about in advance. The process is not organized, nor did I (along with other passengers) understand why another checkpoint was being unexpectedly required.. 2. The food onboard (main meal - beef and snack - calzone) were not good; although they were served hot, they were bland and unappetizing. Contrary to popular belief, not all airplane food is "bad". 3. And finally, the restrooms were not kept clean during the flight - I had never seen that on any of the nternational airlines I've taken over several years."
Pros: "Food was good. That is pretty much it. Well, Brussels airport shopping and food was good too."
Cons: "I travel a lot, and I've used many airlines before. This was my first and last time I use Brussels airlines. The cabin crew is not friendly. The entertainment was poor. The checking process was horrible (the airport is not properly designed, managed, poor information systems) I will gladly go through the mad house in Heathrow, or long walks at Schiphol, but not interested in Brussels."
Pros: "Excellent service. Friendly staff."
Pros: "Entertainment options were awesome!!!"
Cons: "We left late because they were waiting for people from another flight that got canceled to transfer to our flight, and even with the delay, one of my bags got lost. I was the third person to check in for the flight, so I'm not sure how that happened."
Pros: "Excellent crew, ALL OF THEM! smiling and super helpful and they seemed to enjoy their job. Super clean restrooms (again, I was the first one in there - by chance)."
Cons: "I travelled economy. Somehow it felt quite crammed. I felt that there were too many announcements, in all 3 languages, it got frustrating, as it stops all onboard entertainment. Duty Free selection rather frugal."
Cons: "Flight crew would gossip in Flemish Food not good and I vegetarian dinner option provided at all!"
Cons: "Delay boarding,delay riching destynation,poor crew service"
Cons: "Custums on JFK was not utilized to check a full plane with tourists. ESTA finger prints took more than 2 hours."
Cons: "the fact I bought a new ticket"
Cons: "Not enough space for my legs"
Pros: "The plan arrived earlier than it was scheduled,everything wss smooth."
Cons: "Everything : two hoiurs late, no info, unhelpful crew, terrible food,3 toilets for 200 people... The worst experience in flying"
Pros: "The flight attendants on the trip from Brussels to NY were more friendlier than the flight attendants on the NY to Brussels leg of the trip."
Cons: "The sandwich that was served on the Brussels to NY leg of the trip was not great at all. The seats were hard on my behind."
Pros: "Food was fair, and the boarding process involved multiple checks by the same people, of the same documents. Seems redundant, and there are probably more productive ways to check. Seats very uncomfortable for such a new plane. Ugh, can’t wait to get off. Movie selection mediocre."
Cons: "Food and seats"
Pros: "Business class. Great service and truly gourmet food. Departure & arrival exactly on time.... a first with JFK. Very nice present of a large box of Neuhaus chocolates upon landing."
Cons: "Silly but the toiletries bag was cumbersome and contained very little. Unlike our return flight to JFK the outbound flight to BRU had very, very poor food and I'm being politr."
Pros: "They tried and succeeded in making flying as enjoyable and comfortable as it can be these days in economy class. Plenty of legroom. I would absolutely fly with them again."
Cons: "Really, really bad food. Also, the selection of movies could have been better. Most of the foreign films did not have English subtitles."
Cons: "crew indifferent; entertainment limited; food not so good"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "To small of a choice to choose from. More options and also newer movies would have been better"
Pros: "flight arrived safely"
Cons: "everything else. Tegel is a mess, but also this Brussels Air / Lufthansa flight was tightly packed with absolutely no service for anyone not in the first 12 rows of the plane - more than half did not even get a drop of water"
Pros: "The food somewhat but I couldnt enjoy it when everyone else seated where I was had better food and I couldnt have the better food because I had to order it...something that was never mentioned if it was atleast by email I wouldve ordered. Swiss airlines have emails to give you options on entertainment and everything else...follow their lead"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude and moody like they didnt want to be there and took it out on the people they were suppose to give service to. One flight attendent got upset or acted a little nasty because I asked her for another custom border slip. She said was going to bring one but I guess she forgot and an atleast 30 minutes to an hour went by till I asked her again and she got nasty. The same lady along with the other flight attendants snatched trash out peoples hands like they were diseased...and they had gloves on. When it came to entertainment they didnt have much variety. Unless the price for the flight is dirt cheap or below average I would choose to fly with them again other than that I'll go to another"
Pros: "The crew members were kind and friendly and went the extra mile to be helpful."
Cons: "The entertainment screen was about 6 inches wide and there were only four movies to choose from (one that was older than the hills). The screen wasn't clear. Hard to believe that there was such poor technology for a flight from the U.S. to Europe. Also, there were no ports to charge phones or tablets which made it near impossible to watch entertainment on a phone or tablet due to low battery levels. The wi-fi was not strong. I typically like food on an airplane, but this food was not something to be enjoyed. I hope to not fly Brussels Airlines/United again. I'll stick with British Airways and American."
Cons: "i went to the (galley?) at the back and politely requested a drink, a member of staff refused me because they were just about to begin serving drinks. that's stupid. i was sat right at the back of the plane and wouldn't get a drink for at least 20 minutes because service starts in the middle and works back. fortunately another member of staff (older, female) just reached over and handed me a drink, because she understood it was easier and quicker and more reasonable to do that than to be a dick about it."
Pros: "Flight crew was great, service was excellent."
Cons: "Flight was very cold."
Pros: "The airline insisted I check my bag because it was 2lbs over the weight, but it was an empty flight. We had a transfer in Brussels where some how the tags on the bags were not there and we were without a luggage for 5 days. I feel that the Venice airport claim was horrible as they seem to misplace luggage alot and on our transfer flight they fave us the wrong carousel. The service on the plane was great. But that was it."

Pros: "Excellent service and space for economy class."
Pros: "They were responsive. They had lots of gate agents. You had to initiate the conversation though."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4.5 hrs. The check-in process was not smooth. After additional security screening at the gate everyone was left on the jetway until everyone had their tickets scanned. They were late loading cargo and food."
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind and tried their best"
Cons: "I ordered my special meal 3 times and never got an email confirmation. Because my previous connecting flight with Brussels Airlines was delayed, I didn't have a chance to get something to eat in the airport just in case. As I suspected my Vegan meal was not there. I had to wait until Business class ate to see if they had any leftovers."
Pros: "Great l! The food was good, landing was smooth and seats comfortable. Entertainment options were ok but could be better. Overall I enjoyed my experience and would love to fly with Brussels airlines again."
Pros: "Clean, professional and great meal!"
Pros: "pleasant fight..."
Cons: "long flight (it was far through no fault of Brussels Airline"
Pros: "Nice plane, seats, staff. I was told the regular economy seats did not recline. they do. I was able to upgrade on on leg to economy privlige and then it was much more roomy. The food was good for me : )"
Pros: "Excellent staff"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Choice of food"
Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "Impossible to check in online if you have a visa. Avoid at all costs seats in row 15. The first row in coach has 3 seats and be row behind has 4 meaning that you are 4 people sharing 3 screens and seat pockets. No room to put your legs under the seat in front of you because they are not aligned with the seats in front. I fly all the time and have never seen this. I am short and has absolutely no room for myself or even my iPad and headphones. Horrible experience. Never flying with Brussels airlines on a transatlantic again!"
Cons: "Not allowing free seat selection when the ticket is purchased."
Pros: "The cabin was kept at proper temperature and humidity. The food was properly cooked. The staff treated customers properly. Overall a relaxing and easy flight."
Pros: "1st time on Brussels. Wonderful overall trip."
Cons: "The meal home was not so good."
