Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I needed to change the date of the flight and JAL refused to change it. that sort of made it a bad flight since I couldn't take it."
Pros: "The meals were an experience in itself. It felt like I was at a 5 star restaurant."
Cons: "The seat cushions in economy class could be softer. My rear end was feeling it after the long 11 hour flight from Chicago to Tokyo."
Pros: "Comfortable and great crew"
Cons: "Tickets were in the wrong name and the company that issued them refused to fix the problem. I ended up buying a second ticket directly from the airlines."
Pros: "People were friendly - from check in right through to disembarkment."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Tight seating."
Cons: "Cancelled flight"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "My 12 hrs layover in Japan."

Pros: "I had to change my flight and it was a terrible experience, I will book directly with the airlines from now on."
Cons: "Delayed flight that cost most passangers their next flights, incredibly stressful. Upon arriving to Chicago there was a problem lining up the exit ramp to the boarding craft and it took a very long time to correct the situation."
Pros: "Ms Yoshinaga went out of her way to make sure everything was smooth for my experience."
Pros: "Great tasting food, and nearly constant beverage service."

Pros: "Boarding procedure was the most efficient I have ever seen for a 777. Very quick and efficient, back to front. Great food. Very polite and efficient crew. Plenty of leg room in coach. Comfortable seat configuration, with only three seats in center section. JAL is a great airline!"
Pros: "All was efficient but no standout"
Cons: "Nothing was bad enough to mention this column"
Pros: "Service was polite and efficient"
Cons: "Vegetarian food very difficult to book on JAL. Unlike most other major airlines they don't offer a vegetarian option routinely on their menus. Both I and another passenger who flew JAL the weekend before found the vegetarian food poor - very bland and too salty. The exact same menu all four times we flew. A pity as the rest of the service wa excellent. If JAL wishes to attract more international customers it would be a good idea for it to broaden its global perspective and provide better vegetarian options. I know others who've had similar concerns about other types of special meal."
Pros: "Good food. Very friendly and helpful attendants. They also gave souvenir toys for my 2-year-old son."
Pros: "This was an AA flight.I never expect excellent service from AA."
Pros: "Flight attendants were super helpful and lovely, couldn't have asked for better. Very pleasant experience. Plane was clean and tidy and they arranged us all so the majority of us had a spare seat in the middle which I'm sure everyone appreciated."

Pros: "Excellent overall, crew is very attentive and courteous. Food is better than most airlines Every thing is fine. Boarding is orderly. Crew very courteous. Movie selection is good.. We have been flying JAL for a few times and never regret"
Pros: "It was the best flight and airline I have flew so far. The crew was extremely professional and very helpful, the space between the sits was great and I didn't feel cramped into the sit like on any other airline. Food was excellent also!"
Pros: "I enjoyed their food very much, and the bathrooms are so clean! It made my trip easy. You will never regret using JAL."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and helpful. Overall it was as good as a 12 hour economy flight can go."
Cons: "Unfortunately they ran out of some food by the time they got to us and only had fish left. It was okay, just not my favorite. We were 35 minutes late taking off which contributed with me missing my connecting flight."
Pros: "Economy seats were extremely comfortable and roomy. What a difference that makes."
Cons: "Movies available tended to be either action/terror/suspense, or old movies. Very few real dramas."
Pros: "The crew were the nicest group of flight attendants I have ever encountered. The offered assortment of snack during my flight. I got a scented warm hand towel before they service me a meal. They even use real silverware in economy"
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was the temperature of the plane. It was quite hot (felt like 75 degrees inside)"
Pros: "Comfort seat, decent food, polite service"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, constantly checking in with us to make sure we were okay since we don't eat the airline food."
Cons: "While there was more leg room than on most flights, the actual seats were not comfortable enough for a twelve hour flight. This was our ninth trip to Japan, and these were the most uncomfortable seats we've ever had."
Pros: "The staff took pride in providing excellent service from check in till landing."
Cons: "Still paying for wifi in 2016"
Pros: "Absolutely loved the flight. The flight staff was among the best I have flown with. In terms of service I could not have asked for any better. The seats were super comfortable with a great entertainment system/large screen. The layout essentially gave you a nearly private suite. The doos service was impeccable. The lavatories spotless, along with those cool Japanese bidets...first one I've seen on a plane. Overall, I loved the experience."
Cons: "Remarkably the one issue on this wonderful business class seat was a limited area of storage for small items, most significantly a lack of a pocket for a cell phone by the USB port. Also the armrest didn't rise when the seat was in upright mode."
Pros: "My seat and my son's seat were booked apart on the both flights. So I requested the representatives at the check in counters at both airports to change our seats so that we could seat next each other. They were willing to help us out and we got the great seats. They had to ask other customers to help this out, too. In the airplanes, the flight attendants were extremely helpful and friendly when we asked them questions and favors, with nice smiles and calm quiet voices. No wonder the atmosphere was very relaxing and quiet during the both flights. The leg room was roomier and the facilities were newer. When I saw three pilots bowed to the customers before getting into the airplane, I felt they were very professional and ready for their jobs."
Cons: "Some food items were too Japanese. Dried Natto snack was especially weird for my son."
Pros: "The ground crew in HKG airport was really helpful."
Cons: "I have been flying JAL from HK to Boston numerous times and by far my favourite (over Cathay and don't even need to mention United). However this past trip gave me a new perspective. Given it is a Japanese airline and all, it is normal for them to be Japanese-centric. We had an a-hole sitting in front of us at 51F during our flight to Narita and he was trying hard to argue with us in English, and even told us to move to another seat. When I had the flight attendant (her name is Sako on flight JL736 on Jul 26) over to discuss (in English) she went to the guy in front of us and started apologizing to him. For what??? She then came back to us speaking in Japanese and brushed the issue away. Sorry, no this was not acceptable, even though my fiance was okay with the situation."
Pros: "Comfortable plane, good service"
Pros: "Service & seats are great."
Cons: "The connections were a bit late, making the long trip longer!"
Cons: "Some crew members from Hong Kong better make more effort to improve service skills."
Pros: "An airline that thinks about consumers and then delivers a premier experience. Fly no one else to or from Japan."

Pros: "Good food, and entertaimet!"

Pros: "The crew was very good and consistently accommodating"
Cons: "Nothing actually"

Cons: "Food was not good."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very accommodating super friendly."
Cons: "The food . I had a stomach ache with one of the salmon(raw) salad. It was horrible!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great and very accommodating. They made the flight comfortable for all passengers. The entertainment was decent, some recent movies. Overall a pleasant experience."
Cons: "There was no choice for vegetarian/vegan meal options on the flight. This was my biggest complaint. Having a meal option is crucial when you are flying for 10+ hours. It is 2016, the vegetarian/vegan community is growing, and it is unfair that there was no choices. Luckily, the snacks were vegan friendly and the kind staff tried to put together a meal of veggies, fruit, and as many rolls as we wanted. If this wouldn't have been the case, the flight could have been a lot worse. Consider giving the meal preference choice to people. Not everyone eats meat, and many have an allergy/intolerance to dairy."
Pros: "No distance between passengers (covid)"
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight. Great friendly crew. Both flights CMB to DOHA and DOHA-DFW were nice and clean. Food was great!"

Pros: "Crew is amazing"
Cons: "The Entertainment screen wasn’t working"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Bassinet seats could be bigger for comfort with an infant."
Cons: "Catering load was poorly estimated. They'd run out of my first choice of brunch despite being in the first row (apparently pancakes are "really popular with the kids" but they don't load extra to account for this). Also ran out of my main choice."
Pros: "Flight was on time, baggage was quick, got out of airport and on my way."
Cons: "Deboarding out on the taxi way in Doha, then busing us to the terminal, took a long time, we were dropped in front and had to go through security again, should have been an easy connection but ended up rushing. status boards in Doha are not that clear, change a lot"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and welcoming and warm."
Cons: "The toilets was not clean and the boarding delayed without any explanation"
Pros: "Crew and qsuite were top notch. The dine on demand is the best. One little nip pick. The crew knew I was going to sleep. It was a 1:20am departure flight and did not offer to make the bed/mattress..."
Cons: "Wish we could’ve park at the gate instead of bus over to terminal. Given Doha is their hub, should have been able to accommodate that. Also, do they update the movies every month? Still the same movies as in June."
Cons: "Qatar Air! So refreshing to have good service just when I thought it was gone in this "modern" world..."
Pros: "Excellent-18 hour flight but Qatar really looks after you. Crew amazing and food is pretty good."
Pros: "The seats are comfortable; food is good."
Cons: "Our luggage hasn't arrived due to the short layover and due to the feact that the first leg plane was late."
Pros: "Everything was just average to poor."
Cons: "Baggage was not handled properly. Food is just average. Crew looked very tired, they are probably too much overloaded with work and the airline has poor scheduling of shifts for their crews."
Pros: "Plane design was nice"
Cons: "Selecting food online was misleading; felt we had to select something then. We learned later that it was just special diets that required online selection."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful throughout the flight"
Cons: "The boarding process in Chicago wasn’t great. Zones were not used"
Pros: "Phenomenal sericve Left my earbuds on the plane ther were returned before my next connection"
Cons: "Service service The q suite the airport and more service"
Pros: "Movies and onboard games were good. So was the food. Crew took good care of us and the toilets were clean"
Cons: "We couldn't lower the seats backwards. It was horror for eight hours. And one little tv didn't work but they gave my wife a diferent, better seat because of that. We had a long layover, 12 hours, and they said we didn't have rights for anything. So we went to the city on our one because we didn't want to go on organized tour that we need to pay extra money"
Cons: "The food was not served well. There were no snacks on the flight. The service was not even prompt. If I request for juice/water it was served to me after 30-40 minutes . I was travelling with a baby and the staff was not even considerate about it and attending fast. I requested for a mineral water bottle as I ran out of baby water for making milk for the baby and the staff was so reluctant and told "they are done" and just left.I am really dissapointed with this. I doubt if I would travel with qatar again"
Pros: "Customer service and food."
Pros: "Service was fantastic as usual for me however it seems women are not treated equally service wise as wife on all 4 legs did not get all the things i was afforded. Lighting, pajamas, bed mattress, meal choice queries etc"
Cons: "The need to pull out boarding passes multiple times-like 6 times- and having to be screened Twice. To even buy some mouthwash i had to show boarding passes. Ridiculous"
Pros: "business cabin nearly empty. comfortable seats"
Cons: "Expensive WiFi"
Pros: "The insight service was good. Kind and welcoming attitude of the stewards are appreciated. There was no guile but genuine"

Pros: "Very impressed with the service. Very friendly staff"
Cons: "My entertainment unit on the Perth Doha leg never worked even after several resets"
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Pros: "On business class, so service was extraordinary"
Pros: "price, comfort, food"
Cons: "arrived late, causing connection stress"
Pros: "The overall experience"
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 ."
Pros: "Good service, clean aircraft, friendly crew"
Cons: "Qatar Airways Asian vegetarian hot meal is not as good as some other airlines. It lacks the asian grains, light spices etc."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and there was more room for our legs than most airline provide. The entire staff as well as the pilot certainly know what the term “service” means!"

Pros: "Crew courtesy, exceptional service"
Pros: "Great flight with good food and crew."
Pros: "Quick boarding, good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food is below average. Very salty tofu salad, and they keep giving the same food in every leg."
Pros: "Quality food and hospitality"
Pros: "Our meals were luke warm at best while the bread was still semi frozen. Food quality has always been low on Qatar flights but this time was the absolute worst. I fly with Qatar for work everything 4 months and that's solely due to convenience."
Cons: "Since I was sitting in the row starting a new section in the plane (row 26?), crew members walked in front of me throughout the whole flight. Sometimes if my legs were extended, they were stepping over me, so it just got annoying."
Pros: "Wheelchair was assigned to me from terminal to inside plane. Crew was able to speak my local language. That was something awesome feel like home."
Cons: "Am satisfied with the services but free wifi was not there ;-)"
Pros: "Wonderful Experience with Qatar airways, as always."
Cons: "Leg room is tight, as it's with other economy airlines. Aside from that, there is really nothing to complain about."
Pros: "they have a good movie selection"
Cons: "it took awhile for us to get our bags in denpasar."
Pros: "food and courtesy of the staff"
Pros: "Wonderful friendly service yet not overpowering. Clean airplane esp. clean bathrooms with efficient amenities. Fruits were sweet."
Cons: "Must include the latest films. I find the Hollywood films rather passe. Main courses not to my liking. The fish was overcooked and became very fluffy. Yes, fluffy is the word. Salmon was too salty. Asian food was not up to standard."
Pros: "On time, good crew, easy connection."
Cons: "Hard and tight seats for such long night flight."
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Good flight"
Pros: "Roomy seats & clean appearance and modern cabin."
Cons: "This is an isolated experience on Qatar but a couple of the crew members had poor attitudes. One flight attendant talked down to passengers during boarding and while serving. Another flight attendant acted as if if she was being inconvenienced when asked for water. The seat did not function properly. It would recline on its own which caused constant adjustment throughout the flight."
Pros: "Alinda, the stewardess."
Cons: "Too long journey."
Pros: "Schedule of flight"
Cons: "Space between seats were smaller"
Pros: "Boarding and crew great!"
Cons: "Seats extremely narrow"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The screen"
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Food was good."
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic is the best airline I’ve ever flown on internationally. The service is wonderful, from check in to inflight service. Everything went as planned.

Cons: "No. Keep up the good work!"
Cons: "Seats were really old and outdated"
Pros: "Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Tiny, uncomfortable seats with warn cushions."
Pros: "The crew where awesome and catered to every need and requirement."
Cons: "need to have a slightly deeper seat pitch in premium economy to allow people out without having to wake each other up. Especially on night flights."
Pros: "Top crew very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Business class food was bizarre for breakfast - a Mexican taco??? Asked for eggs from economy to be back later up"
Pros: "My flight was canceled and Virgin Atlantic gave us a free room in the hotel Ramada. My next flight was at 18:55 and I asked Virgin Atlantic agent am I allowed to stay in the room until time for my flight comes, he confirmed yes and gave me breakfast, lunch, and dinner voucher. However, next day around 12 I got call from Front Desk that I have to leave my room right away because it's time to chack out and If I want to stay longer I have to pay. I called Virgin Atlantic agancy again and the agent run my information and said to me I can stayin the room longer. After that I called front desk to confirm that but they said they didn't hear anything from Virgin Atlantic and I have to leave the room by 1pm. All of this was really unpleasant!"
Cons: "I didn't like anything. I didn't like the communication between Virgin Atlantic with travelers, communication between Virgin Atlantic and hotel Ramada. Everything was really poorly."
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"
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"
Pros: "Movies. Meals. Wine. Freq"
Pros: "We liked everything about our Virgin Atlantic flight. They could not have been more helpful from the time we got our Boarding passes in London until we got off the plane in Washington DC."
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike on this part of our trip with Virgin Atlantic."
Pros: "The crew was professional, responsive and friendly."
Cons: "The following experience goes down in history as the worst ever because: we had a 3.5 year old child, and mom and dad seated directly in front of our row. The couple ignored the instructions to move seats forward during meals making it impossible to eat. They placed their luggage in the overhead compartment belonging to both rows, which wasn't a problem if they hadn't proceeded to open and close the compartment every 20 minutes. The 300 pd dad repeatedly stepped on my broken toe while reaching for his luggage, while rattling around and disturbing sleeping passengers. And, sadly the child repeatedly threw temper tantrums without any care or effort of intervention from the parents. In short, they terrorized the surrounding travellers. In contrast, my outbound flight, also had a family seated in the row directly in front. This family was the antithesis, considerate and respectful of their fellow passengers. Susan Laws"
Cons: "One particular female member of crew could do with a refresher course in customer care service !!!!! I asked for water and she gave me something else, when I told her very nicely that I had asked her for water she began to argue with me that I hadn’t, I thought her very rude, (what happened to the customer is always right) I have been flying with Virgin for twenty years twice a year sometimes even three !!!! and never been spoken to like this from any other member of staff!!!!"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that my seat was between 2 small children that belonged to a family sitting behind me .It was ridiculous to put a stranger on a 10 hour flight with a 3yrar old on one side and a 5 year old on the other"
Cons: "Everything incl customer service at the airport"

Cons: "We haven’t possiblyty to check in online. Crew smell was terrible, ladies used some perfume, some people was allergic to it"
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."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and attentive through out flight."
Pros: "Even it was a 12-13hrs flight, I had been my best flight ever in a long flight. Virgin really exeeced my expectations."
Cons: "given milk yoghurt with VGML breakfast"
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: "Service is super fast"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "A large selection of movies, shows and music to choose from. Flight crews were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The narrow space between each rows for passengers to move from their seats."
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: "I thought the food was mediocre for business class"
Pros: "I liked everything, which is very uncharacteristic :)) At least compared to the big American carriers or the national European ones, VA is a gen - esthetically for sure. Clean, comfy, stylish! Will be my choice from now on."
Pros: "Getting to Barbados from Manchester airport is convenient"
Cons: "The light weight on a long haul flight do not work anything over four hours you need some form of comfortability and virgin got it wrong with the seats .. yes I know the industry is all about making and saving money but you also need to Remember that most of this flight you will be sat down for"
Pros: "The crew were excellent."
Cons: "Seats were ridiculously uncomfortable. The seat cushions were worn and had no padding. Very few movie, Show, music and game choices to choose from. The audio input didn't work in my seat. Major fail for a 13+ hour flight."
Pros: "Very comfortable and spacious seats, good air circulation and friendly crew."
Cons: "Food and wine selections were limited and only mediocre. We flew economy plus."
Pros: "Staff was top notch in service and kindness"
Pros: "Purchased an extra 3" of leg room, which helped tremendously being that my husband & I are both tall. Flight attendants were friendly, helpful & attentative. There were plenty of beverages offered. The food service was adequate. So many options on the media screens on the back of the seats. USB ports were provided on the back of every seat as well."
Pros: "They were were very kind and helpful to all passengers"
Pros: "Crew was awesome and their service was great. I liked that they put snacks like fruit out to eat during the flight."
Cons: "The meals were terrible. I flew on VA a couple of years ago and the food was very good but it has really gone down since then."
Cons: "this is not an airline, this is a bus company"
Pros: "The crew was great with updates. Checking in was a bit confusing though as not all the crew knew what was up. It was a very crowded day so it was bound to be a bit rough. Of my last four flights to London Virgin Atlantic was the best!"
Cons: "Heathrow was a bit confusing and it took a moment to get my bearings. The crew was a bit disorganized but that seemed to get solved quickly."
Cons: "They tried checking my carryon luggage because they said it was overweight and it would be $130. This is absurd, especially since it isn't going to change in weight by getting checked. I refused to pay this amount. The flight was also 3 hours delayed, almost missed my connection back to the states from SYD. Other international flights offer free meal service, you were lucky if you got water on this flight and had to pay for any snacks."

Pros: "The food has improved."
Cons: "Flight turned back after an hour. Held in HK for 24 hours. Dreamliner no big sea change in air transport. Economy still uncomfortable and cramped. Crew give the impression of being bossy and aloof, I saw them making faces behind someone's back. Emirates crew are so much more helpful and pleasant."
Pros: "Not much really"
Cons: "Boarding, food, seat comfort. Essentially everything"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Food portions and selections were great. We got slippers and eye masks for a ten hour red eye flight."

Pros: "I did not like anything from this trip. I just learned my lesson not to travel with turkish airlines ever again."
Cons: "flight was canceled from previous flight so we had to overnight in istambul and the whole situation was handled very poorly nobody took the time to explain to me what to do and mind this I was traveling with three year old and I found myself crying at midnight at the airport not knowing what to do."
Cons: "Turkish Airline lost one of my checked in bag! Never found it!"

Cons: "Seat was a little uncomfy"
Pros: "Pilot was operating nicely, temperature was acceptable,"
Cons: "Cabin crews should pay more attention to elder people,"
Cons: "I missed my flight from ABV to Istanbul. The customer representatives at the airport office couldn’t help me find or place me on another flight. They wanted me to purchase a new ticket and pay full price instead of the difference. The flight ime on my itinerary was 12:15a on Sunday (instead of 00:15) which confused me. My flt coming to ABV, airline left my baggage in turkey too and had no representative at airport to inform us what happened. Seems airline treats flights to Nigeria this way"
Cons: "I had a 22 hour layover. On the website, Turkish Airlines advertises they cover hotel rooms for anyone with a layover exceeding 15 hours. However, it's impossible to get a e-visa to allow Americans to leave the airport to take advantage of this. There is one hotel inside the airport, however it's extremely expensive and booked well in advance. While the service was decent on the plane, inside the airport the TA employee's were very rude and not at all helpful. So be prepared to spend the night on the floor or an uncomfortable bench. Won't fly on this airline ever again."
Pros: "had a medical emergency mid flight and the crew was fantastic and accommodating."
Cons: "Security lines for US departure way too long. Turkish Airline needs more people to speed up process."
Pros: "Everything was great."

Cons: "No leg room on the plain, the crew is ok, but not very friendly. Not flexible with kids menu (requested kids menu, but crew was not notified and was not able to provide any), not very clean inside the plane (tables were dirty and there was hair in the window)"
Pros: "Great entertainment, crew, food, and organization. This was my first flight on Turkish Airlines and I would definitely fly this airline again."
Cons: "Clearing security was a nightmare. So many layers and lines to stay in, and the area wasn't air conditioned. Unfortunately, a handful of the passengers got "ripe" before the 10 hour flight to Chicago. Ugh."
Pros: "bad !!!"
Cons: "All !!"
Pros: "crew, fod, entertainment was great"
Pros: "The up to date and *free movie options"
Cons: "Trying to reclaim our laptops at the end of the trip was a nightmare. They confiscated all electronic devices larger than a cellphone due to new Trump regulations (not their fault). Fine. But they were so disorganized about the process. When trying to reclaim the devices after the flight utter chaos ensued. That was their fault. Passengers were on the verge of violence and it could have been avoided by simply being more organized."
Cons: "Previous flight cancelled due to weather conditions, and despite calling and having a lot of flexibility with time, we were unable to reschedule without massive charges. Our refund was quite low, and we will rebook on another airline. This, despite being a TK gold card member."

Cons: "as above"
Cons: "I stayed in Istanbul Airport for 16 hours with no hotel or even a meal."
Pros: "I didnt receive my baggage."
Pros: "This is a government run airline with very poor customer service. I flew 6 flights in December, 2016 in business class - out of which 5 flights were late. There was no help at the transfer desk in Istanbul to get onto another flight as my connecting flight was missed because the original outbound flight was late. The customer service staff both at the lounge and the transfer desk were inept and rude and did not want to help. I shudder to think how economy passengers are treated."
Cons: "1) No organized boarding process - there is a general melee at the boarding gate with a lot of shoving and pushing. 2) Customer service staff are rude, incompetent and unhelpful 3) No recognition that customers are to be served 4) Food selection in business class was mediocre and poor 5) Old aircraft - on flight from Istanbul to London, business class was 3 abreast with the middle seat being used as a tray table. 6) Sleeper class is mediocre - seat width is poor and one cannot even turn on the side"
Pros: "Good food and plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "Seats were a bit cramped."
Pros: "The crew in Nigeria were very helpful. Hated the food but hey plane food is always bad in economy. Loved the inflight movies"

Pros: "The flights attending."
Cons: "The waiting time for next flight."
Cons: "My seat was terribly uncomfortable. The airplane temprature was really low that it made me so sick. I had a missing luggage where i did not hear any updates from Turkish Airlines for 5 days. I ALWAYS fly Turkish Airline internationally when going to Turkey. But after my last experience, i am not so sure"
Pros: "Everything operated fairly smoothly on the flight. Service was very good."
Cons: "Boarding was haphazard, no use of group numbers. They ran out of one selection for dinner less than halfway through the plane. My entertainment screen froze about 2 hours into the 9 hour flight and they couldn't/didn't reset it though I asked several times, so I read a book instead. I will say this was the exception flight out of the other 3 I have had with Turkish. On those, I encountered no issues."
Pros: "Best long distance airline I have flown to date."
Pros: "Clean, efficient."
Cons: "Inexplicably, food choices ran out and the crew were basically like tough luck...no explanation, aporigins or anything. My fiance who didn't eat meat was left eating bread and crackers."
Pros: "New planes, very modern fit-out, industry leading entertainment system. Excellent flight all round."
Cons: "Crew member wanted me to move my seat up so the passenger behind me can have more room. The person in front of me had his chair pushed all the way back, what the hell was the crew member thinking? I still did not move my chair and argued with the female crew. Crew members do not treat everyone equally. I asked for functioning pair of headphones and water, crew members never brought them to me. Responded by saying yes, BUT never brought it to me. I noticed crew members treated children and Turkish passengers first. I'm Chinese and flew Turkish airline- I felt the discrimination. Never traveling with Turkish airlines AGAIN."
Pros: "Everything was really great!"
Pros: "Security checks in a narrow area serving several flights to the USA took way too long time to board"

Pros: "Seats were good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed on both ends"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive"

Pros: "Very nice plane"
Cons: "The boarding process was awful. The gate agent was extremely rude - was shocked she was representing Delta. There was police on board arresting two passengers and crew was not saying anything."

Pros: "Nothing exceptional stands out"
Cons: "Flight was not on time"
Pros: "Seat 4 A. The flight attendant working first class was very attent"

Pros: "see above"
Pros: "The closeness of the airport in proximity to my house as well as the ease of finding your gate and boarding."
Cons: "There were so many passengers and such a small plane. There was NO leg room and the lady in front of me wanted to recline her seat, when I’m already claustrophobic to begin with. It was hot and the air above our head was barely working. There was one flight attendant who was blatantly rude to an elderly lady about her bags under the seat before the flight took off. To make this all worse, I had to suffer through all of this discomfort for over an hour for a 25 minute flight."
Pros: "Loved being in first class"
Cons: "Hated gate change and late plane at the last minute."
Pros: "Since I wasn't allowed on the flight because another leg caused us to arrive with only an hour to board, I can't tell you anything that was enjoyable."
Cons: "The KLM representative was COMPLETELY unhelpful. She basically told us we were screwed and to go away. We spent hours on the phone at great cost to us (international pay phone charges) to be bounced for one rep to another. We were finally told we could get in a plane home Sunday, please to be transferred, starting the process over from the beginning. It was TERRIBLE, beginning to end!"
Cons: "This was my most uncomfortable flight ever. I am 94 years old and the seat was so cramped and small that the entire 3 hours were uncomfortable."

Pros: "After almost every airline cancelled. Delta still took me to where I needed to go with not one single problem. That pilot was amazing. I forget his name. But the plane didn't slide or anything during take off. Amazing."
Cons: "What was there not to like. We were a little bit late but I wasn't in a rush. I planned well ahead. Delta moved my flight from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and that was perfectly fine with me."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the arrival was early"
Pros: "Not much . The boarding process took forever and the lines through TSA took longer .. no direction to lines and I was standing for 10 min before saying something to someone and they said o there’s another line."
Cons: "Almost everything besides the staff on the plane"
Pros: "Was initially hoping to fly a US airline but will now look for Aeromexico first. Exceeded my expectations!"
Cons: "The layover in Mexico City was a bit long and the airport was not so great"
Pros: "Other than the delay by the Hong Kong Airport controller, everything went smoothly. The plane was late to Seattle."
Cons: "The luggage custom clearing would be much better if we could do it like the Vancouver BC where an electronic monitor was used to identify one's luggage without the need to handle them manually. Much more efficient and allowing folks to get on the connecting flights easier."
Cons: "Food was bad."
Pros: "Boarding, checking in etc. The usual stuff, nothign spectacular."
Cons: "Seats are getting too crowded!"
Pros: "The crew was beyond friendly and courteous. Lots of leg room."

Pros: "Smaller plane, aisle seat with a lot of leg room (5c), smooth flight"
Cons: "Shorter flight so no snacks/drinks were served, although requests were fulfilled."
Pros: "I loved his pilot. His take of and landing were so smooth. I wish I could request him and his co-pilot for every trip I take. The flight attendants served and did not hang around and harass you like some do. They were efficient."
Pros: "Some of the ground staff was trying to be helpful."
Cons: "That we had to sleep like homeless people on the floor of JFK airport as the airline was not able to provide for a crew and therefore cancelled the flight. The airline cancelled the flight at 1.30 in the morning so no one was able to get a stay in a hotel not did the airline take any action towards helping the stranded passengers. We were given blankets and pillows. The best thing was the ground staff getting rude after all passengers complaining. They were basically saying we should get stuffed since we were booked for a flight next day same day. This is shameful! Needless to say that I will not fly this airline again!"
Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."
Pros: "The crew was great on both Korean air and Delta. Very helpful and polite, with several going the extra mile"
Cons: "I'm tall, so I'd like bigger seats, but I guess that can't be helped much without a price increase"
Cons: "Delayed 2.5 hours"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating, and service was good"
Cons: "I purchased a basic economy ticket and upon checking in, my Delta app said my seat was unassigned and I had to get my boarding pass at the airport. I checked back later and the app had me as number 7 on the standby list. I called Delta (wait time 3+ hours... my flight was in 3), and then the Delta app support where I was able to get through to someone. She told me that the ticket I purchased over a month in advance did not guarantee me a seat on the plane (???). She said that if I was bumped from the flight they would reschedule me for the next morning. She was pretty rude and made it seem like I had a 50/50 shot of getting on this plane. I rushed to the airport in hopes that I would be the first from Standby there, and the gate agent told me that I was fine and would board right after first class and be assigned a seat then. Great. Once I got my seat assignment, I board to find out there is someone else sitting in my seat...... They eventually called the desk and had her moved, but it was the weirdest boarding experience I've had.. and I've flown Spirit. These planes that Delta fly's are SO OLD. Both times I have flown Delta the "turbulence" has been so bad and cold air was blowing right on my the whole flight with no option to turn it off (it wasn't from one of the vents, but from the side). Someone close to me works for Delta and I know for a fact that some of their engines blow mid-flight.. and they tell the passengers that it's turbulence.. so that doesn't make me feel very safe. I won't fly Delta again if there is another comparable option."
Pros: "Reassignment was pretty easy."
Cons: "No accommodations were available for overnight stay due to delayed flight."
Cons: "Flight attendants were a little snobby and didn't treat all passengers equally, in my humble opinion (note: I was sitting in 1st class)."
Cons: "No leg room, seats vastly too narrow"
Cons: "Missed the seatback entertainment system!"
Pros: "The stewardesses were not only beautiful (Jessica and Kesha) but extremely attentive and friendly."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"
Cons: "To be fair the flight from Honolulu to Lihue was on Hawaiian Air, not Delta per se. The crew was rude, but in the terminal and on board. Didn't really rate food and entrainment because of the flight length."
Pros: "The entire flight was good."
