"Kayak/Qatar Airways tore one of my bags. I'd like compensation for it. Also, the check in at Chicago was time consuming and tedious owing to RT PCR checking. That should be made more efficient. Likewise, the check at Mumbai airport."

"Recommend Qatar Airways to everyone! Service, leg room, and food are all great."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "If the police and security in the airport respect the people more!"

Pros: "The check-in crew in Chicago was very nice and efficient. The flight crew on-board were not friendly, they were very curt and rushed, and did not go out of their way to be helpful."
Cons: "Friendlier staff during the flight. Better food for breakfast. The connection port for my headphones did not work...I would not have been able to watch movies if I hadn't brought my own single connection head phones."

Pros: "The crew was really nice and very attentive."

Pros: "Food is delicious"
Cons: "Paid WIFI this time was horrible for the half of the trip WIFI don’t work"

Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable and the electronic amenities were decent and needs improvement"
Cons: "Free WiFi and Dancing boys"

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Food wasn't that great."

Pros: "Very courteous, friendly, professional flight crew and gate crew."
Cons: "Nothing to mention...very pleased"

Pros: "I was at airport 1 hour before the flight time But they already closed the gate, and I missed the flight, and my return flight is gone too Omg to much for me"
Cons: "I wish you can do something for me Because the tickets is really expensive"

Cons: "Slow boarding while passengers stand in the queue, late take off"

Cons: "Refund my ticket"

Pros: "This was my first experience with Qatar & it was outstanding. Crew members are extremely courteous & helpful. The aircraft seats in economy class were roomy & comfortable. Bathrooms were kept clean throughout the long flight. Food was very good as was the selection of flight entertainment. Can't thi"

Pros: "Q-suites are fantastic."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Premium boarding line was tied up by economy passengers and ground crew did not turn them back"

Pros: "seat was great"
Cons: "flight attendant should be nicer"

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

Pros: "Plenty of room to move around"

Pros: "Attention to detail. Very professional."

Pros: "Food was excellent and the crew updated us through out the flight"
Cons: "That fee for overweight was excessive"

Pros: "Q-suits. Very comfortable and private. Great upgrade to the 777. WiFi now available for very reasonable price"
Cons: "Bus transfer to Termial 5 is VERY poorly organized and takes over an hour. This makes it harder to get to Terminal 5 even if you don't have to clear security again. Seats had a bar under the padding at about the position of my hips. Uncomfortable to sleep for several hours"

Cons: "Ord to Doh: People kept window blinds open all through 15 hour flight Flight temperature kept very warm"

Pros: "Good food and good hospitality"

Cons: "The gentleman next to me had broad shoulders, so I spent most of the flight with my body a bit twisted, and eating without being able to move my right arm normally was undesirable. The cabin was kept a bit warm throughout the flight. We had a long wait (30 - 45 minutes after leaving the gate) before takeoff."

Pros: "Never spending too long waiting for anything."
Cons: "More realistic options to upgrade. Example I can board a train in London and upgrade to first class for £20 to Edinburgh. If you have a coach class or business class empty. Have capacity to feed extra or not. Last minute upgrades can be both a revenue stream and another option to further satisfy some customers. Particularly older generations that can afford and would fund such a win win appealing."

Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."

Pros: "B777 Dreamliner is dreamy. Lots of overhead luggage space. Decent leg room (could always be more). Great individual entertainment screen for long transcontinental flights. Flight staff was a mixed international crew, very friendly, unpretentious, polite and just nice compared to other airlines. The planes they use seem very new. Would definitely recommend Qatar Air over Aeroflot any day."
Cons: "Food was decent for airline food but nothing to rave about and as with most airlines uses too much plastic packaging. Although I was pleased that some of the flights used metal flatware, but still too much waste in the industry in my opinion. Also, the headphone jack was not compatible with my headphones. The type used on the 777 is the dual pronged one. I did not have an adapter so had to use the crappy headphones that are provided."

Pros: "Food was great Seats were comfortable Everyone was super nice"

Pros: "Great service and crew"

Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides. Qatar should revise their claim of most room in cabin - this 12 hour flight was one of the roughest I’ve had in a long time comfort wise."

Cons: "Boarding at JFK very disorganized. Poor system. No vetting of wheel chair users many fakers."

Pros: "Every thing is great."
Cons: "Food Seat great service"

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "On demand entertainment systems seem standard, as I’ve flown Qatar several times and always had it. Friendly staff. And Doha is a great connection airport."

Pros: "I have made more than 6 round trips on Qatar Airways for AMD-ORD-AMD in last 18 months and can not be happier!!"

Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."

Pros: "My flight from Chicago to Doha was late to come in and there was a gate agent waiting for us and two other passengers with a sign when we got off the plane. He told us that our flight had already left but he would get us on the next one. We ended up getting seats on the next flight but then were also given the option to get a temporary visa and explore Doha for the night. We opted for the comped night which included a very nice hotel and $100 in meal vouchers. We absolutely LOVED Doha and the hotel and food was fantastic! I don't think I have ever received better service from an airline or a hotel. We ended up walking around Souq Waquif and the downtown until 1am (we are two young females!) with no issue and just used Uber to get to and from the hotel. Everything was so well laid out for us! No complaints whatsoever!"

Pros: "smooth and on time with efficient service."

Pros: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"
Cons: "I wish the airline was a bit more organized with boarding. I saw people with other zones boarding even when they were not called. The air hostess was friendly but I kinda got a feeling that she is doing me a huge favor when I asked for something more."

Pros: "Hospitality, boarding process"
Cons: "Food was slightly undercooked (chicken). Should have better process to check for that"

Pros: "Enjoyed the food and the service from the crew. Plane was new and relatively new and comfortable."
Cons: "The check in agents were not very polite or helpful. They did not offer much assistance and help for a first time customer on Qatar Airways. My bags were also not loaded onto the plane and had to arrive on a later flight"

Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."

Cons: "No consistency with hand luggage. My companions and I were held to strict weight limits. Others were getting on with three and four bags."

Pros: "The entertainment options were fantastic! The flight attendants were very cordial and hardworking."
Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."

Pros: "everything was as expected from a world-class in the travel world."
Cons: "In economy class, the seats are not as roomy as I thought and leg room space is not suited for overseas 12+ hours travel comfort."

Pros: "Vegetarian food options"

Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."

Cons: "Boarding staff give us wrong advice to make extra money from the passenger. They also pressurized us to decide quickly. our each check in baggage was over weight 1 KG or less than 1 KG due to faulty scale at home. Instead of giving us a choice or advice that you are allowed two more hand bags. They pressurized us to make one baggage over weight from all 7 bags and harassed us to do it quickly because they are closing counter in 20 minutes. That's how they charged me another $65. Also they lied on the counter that your seats are in a row but when i went into the plane our seats were separate. Lesson learned don't trust the person over the counter of Qatar airways."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Water station!"

Cons: "Staff were unhelpful and ran out of many food items by the time we were served - meaning that there wasn’t anything available for us to eat as we don’t eat eggs. The check-in was stressful and staff were keen to help - unprofessional and unsatisfactory."

Cons: "The food is not very good at all. One mediocre meal served soon after take-off, then for the rest of the flight tasteless, cardboard pasties and wraps."

Pros: "Comfort, service food and entertainment. What more can you ask for."
Cons: "Nothing. ]"

Pros: "Good collection of movies"
Cons: "To pay for luggage for international flights while on their website it says i dont have to pay if im going to South Africa. The food was not so great."

Pros: "Fabulous flight, light on passengers, so excellent service given by the crew. Virgin goes the extra mile on service and little perks. 747-400 planes also very comfortable, compared to the Airbus 320,"
Cons: "Nothing. Trip both ways were outstanding."

Pros: "Food was great. Friendly stas staff."
Cons: "LAX AIRPORT signage leaves something to be desired. Nothing to do with airline."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant and attentive"
Cons: "The entertainment system was not good. The touch screen was not calibrated and very hard to select and scroll through. The flight was over a hour late so we missed our connection. Got rebooked okay, but after traveling for 18 hours having to wait three extra hours was a drag."

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"

Pros: "Great, friendly, professional crew, clean comfortable plane. Loved that full dinner and baggage and wine was included in an economy class overnight from DC to London as well as breakfast. Best flight in a long time, will definitely fly again."
Cons: "the tv screen's touch screen capabilities could use an upgrade, it was a hassle to navigate, not very sensitive to touch."

Pros: "The service, the drinks, the crew were friendly and professional. Entertainment choices were excellent.0"
Cons: "The space was a bit cramped and the poxket in front of the chair to jeep things was broken."

Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"

Pros: "Complimentary newspaper Food service"
Cons: "Overhead reading light"

Cons: "I never expect airline food to be any good but I’m always hoping it’s edible. This was not the case, as the egg breakfast made me physically ill."

Pros: "Great crew, easy boarding, comfortable enough flight"
Cons: "Could have used a charger for electronics, especially because we were expected to use our own device for entertainment. Didn't order food, but didn't look digestible"

Pros: "Nice airline, great crew and service."
Cons: "Leg room and space was great but the seats could use some more cushion."

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."

Pros: "No one would update that the flight was delayed. They would not even communicate as to why delayed and would not put us in a different flight. Absolutely no customer service. Disappointed and would not fly jet airways again . I missed my conference lecture today as I was late."
Cons: "No communication, nor will they tell you why it's late . Nor will they move you to another flight even wen requested"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "A plane from 1960? No entertainment center!"

Pros: "From the check in to the service on board was very good. Staff were polite and respectful."
Cons: "The food was small. There did not serve bread with the meal"

Cons: "During my flight from LAX to LHR I requested (pre-booked) a special meal (Asian Vegetarian). During the flight I was told there was no such request in their records and therefore I had to stay hungry for the entire duration of the flight. During my return flight from LHR to LAX the in flight entertainment system for my seat was not functional. I requested it to be reset several times and in spite of the hostess resetting it several times, it did not function. I had to stay without an entertainment system during the entire flight. This was my first time travel with Virgin Atlantic. I may never fly Virgin Atlantic again."

Pros: "I was very impressed by the generosity you show concerning food och drink. the staff was kind and glad."
Cons: "I never understood how to connect the earphones to the screen so I couldn't ser any movie. But - I could have asked the staff of course ..."

Pros: "I liked that the boarding went really fast and the staff at the JFK airport was super nice and helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like how rude the airplane crew was and how useless and unhappy they were. The sits were very uncomfortable and the food didn't have any taste."

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 wish I knew the name of the crew on this flight so that credit is given where it's due. A female steward was incredibly kind to me. She allowed me space to cry in the back of the aircraft, and also gave me her personal tissues. Her care is the only reason I'd give this flight an 'okay.'"
Cons: "Unlike the incredibly kind woman, another woman on the crew was incredibly rude to me and to other passengers on the plane. She was very obviously annoyed with nearly everything on that flight. The restrooms were beyond disgusting. I have never flown on a flight with a restroom that awful; it smelled horrible and was filthy. It was reminiscent of a portable outhouse, no exaggeration. The pillow on my seat had makeup on it."

Pros: "This is my new favorite airline. I loved the staff and all the amenities. I was so comfortable and the food choices were great. I felt like I was cared for and my comfort mattered."

Pros: "I've had knee surgery and the flight attendants were very accommodating as to "make" and ice pack for me. The recline of the seats was impecible. The food was great. Overall, great flight."

Pros: "Nothing because I was given a middle seat"
Cons: "6'4 and I get a middle seat.."

Pros: "Wifi worked very well"
Cons: "Jave to pay for everything on an overseas flight"

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."

Pros: "The boarding and the overall flight experience was quite good."
Cons: "There were movie options such as Sully and Deepwater Horizon, which I think are unsuitable for flights. Overall, the movie options could have had more variety."

Pros: "Friendly crew and good food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The cabin was extremely dirty, the food was awful."

Pros: "I loved wine and whiskey. Blanket and blindfolds, headphones helped me sleep. Care packet with toothbrush came in handy."
Cons: "The Sears were tight and thin. I felt pushes from behind. I could not recline the seat enough. I didn't get a window seat, which is my favorite."

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."

Pros: "As expected, great customer service from Virgin. Great Vera system. Friendly and welcoming experience."
Cons: "The seats!!!! Omg I got bed sores. Not really but they have got to be the most uncomfortable things I have ever sat in. For a European flight from Uk they'd be fine. But for 9 hours...not good. The short hop down from ATL to MCO after was a blessed relief. Virgin, you have got to think a little more about your passengers asses. Also, having flown with just about every major transatlantic operator, including previous trips with Virgin, the knee room was not good. If you stretched out under the seat in front you were ok but draw your knees up... I wore short trousers for comfort and have sore points on my knees where they rubbed against the material of the chair in front."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff! Food was very good too."
Cons: "More leg room always desirable"

Pros: "Professionalism value of service"
Cons: "let me think...."

Pros: "Make sure you bring food with you because they will starve you. I also asked for band-aide 2x but it never came. Service is very poor."
Cons: "Service is very poor, ground and air crew are not friendly, can even be driscriminating. There's scarcity of food in this flight. They need to give snacks more often than one in a 13hr flight."

Cons: "Cold draft at all times."

Pros: "Everything except the seating - far too cramped now"
Cons: "Seating! Seats getting ridiculously tight"

Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled at the time I was standing in front of the airline counter to check my bag. I was so furious. The airline did not help me at ALL. In fact, they offer me to buy a brand new ticket at a new price!!!!!! I ended up re-bought the ticket from United airline as my husband has United card (chase) and we ended up paying over 1900 for the ticket that should have been about $911. The priceline number is not helping. I have trip insurance but no. nothing worked. I will never fly Virgin Atlantic again."

Pros: "Very attentive and friendly crew! The plane was nice and clean, nice purple tinted lights. They served us plenty of complementary meals, snacks, mints and drinks. The in flight entertainment was the best I've seen yet: movies, tv, music, games, all recent and easy to use. We will definitely fly Virgin Atlantic again!"

Pros: "The crew was very good with the passengers and attentive"
Cons: "The leg space is very tight, it was very hard to sit specially for longer flights it's not that comfortable"

Pros: "the food was decent"
Cons: "the crew was rude, the bathrooms were not clean"

Pros: "Having partied until 6am for New Years I was grateful for a bed on the flight home! Fantastic crew, planes and overall service!"
Cons: "Wish the arrivals lounge was open for flights arriving in the afternoon."

Pros: "Amazing experience! Virgin Atlantic is different from other airlines from the start. Firstly my plane had a name, not just a number- Jersey Girl - which is a great film, by the way. Next, boarding was efficient and done by loading on the passengers at the back first. Next, all the staff, both on and off the plane, we're amazing. Helpful, friendly and professional. The food was fine. Let's face it, there's not a lot anyone can do with food with the constraints of being at altitude. I love the provision of sleep aids and was able to get more sleep on this flight than with any other airline. The entertainment system is brilliant. Great choices, including Indie films and foreign films- what a treat!! The intro tutorial is genius. I watched the whole thing, which is rare for me. I fly from SLC twice a year across the Atlantic to visit relatives back home. This route through Orlando was a bit circuitous, but I left my booking until late this year. So glad I did. I will always go with Virgin in the future even if it does mean a longer internal flight and a slightly higher cost. Thank you !!"

"Flight crew was not always respectful when addressing travelers. I understand having a bad day, but the individualized sass and snarky attitude is unprofessional."

"No seat assignment. Was put in the absolute last seat in the plane. Flight was delayed because of an electrical issue which also broke the AC until we were taxi-ing. It was hot."

"Great service during the pandemic."

Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Gate agents were a little snippy."

Pros: "Crew was great!"

Pros: "Crew was very rude both to and from Sydney. Always made people feel like they were a burden and they didn’t want to even be there. Will never fly Delta again, especially internationally."
Cons: "Hire employees that at least pretend they enjoy their job."

Pros: "Crew was great, very generous with snacks and beverages, and prior to boarding we were able to switch flights and seats without problem. All the Delta agents were extremely helpful, and had great customer service!"

Pros: "live tv, watched the formula one race"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable, and the side panel at my feet was broken off and i could see through the floor of the plane"

Pros: "excellent crew, efficient and fast boarding"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable. Too narrow and I am a small person. Considering we paid to upgrade seats, they should be wider. Leg room was fine."

Cons: "A Boeing 757 should not be used for a 6+ hour flight"

Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."

Pros: "Service was great"

Cons: "No in flight entertainment"

Cons: "The airport."

Pros: "Efficient, cheerful crew"
Cons: "Stop making seats smaller! The added revenue from 10 squeezed seats is not worth the discomfort it causes."

Cons: "Very late and boarded too long before leaving the gate."

Pros: "I liked the cookies and juice. The interactive screen to watch something. The cleanliness. The price. On time. The service. Thank you. The excitement of flying."

Pros: "Nice plane, comfortable accommodations, great crew."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."

Pros: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"
Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"

Pros: "Crew was friendly enough, but not overly."
Cons: "Entertainment system was (again) not fully functional. No success to "noon-movies", such as games. Plane was untidy almost from the beginning. Check-in staff was functional, but not particularly friendly."

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "No LCD screen for entertainment."

Pros: "The movies were great and the boarding was more streamlined.the plane was clean and in good condition."
Cons: "The seats are getting smaller and more cramped. There still better then American but ugh. Delta's is stingy with their snacks unlike Southwest gives you two or three without even asking you have to beg for two from Delta and they act like it's breaking rules"

Cons: "Boarding was rushed and the crew barely announced the sections. It took an incredibly long time to bard the longest that I have ever experienced and I couldn't point to any reason why."

Cons: "1. Wifi didn't work"

Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing, besides the flight was slightly delayed but not by long"

Cons: "Older plane and seemingly frustrated crew. They had very little patience."

Pros: "Training on delta app usage and being hospitable to injured customers"
Cons: "Timing and not providing accurate information; Phillip at Las Vegas airport was unaware of how to purchase and pay for a checkin bag via the delta app. I️ didn’t have a working card and then realized by the time I️ needed to check in that it was too late. 8 hours later I’m on a red eye flight for a guaranteed seat bc of being put on stand bye. I️ stay in Vegas for 1 night and my ankle swells the next morning and I’m unable to move my legs. Sent to the hospital and have been in Vegas since 11/20"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Very minimal legroom. Screaming children behind me kicking my seat during flight"

Cons: "Smooth"

Pros: "Staff were great.. landed smoothly"

Pros: "Very friendly crew - clear communication & updates regarding delays."
Cons: "No tv, which is okay, but if you offer wifi to watch movies/shows on your phone, really need outlets to charge the phone! Or at least a few radio station to plug headphones into."

Pros: "Nice snacks for such a short trip...most airlines have abandoned this for short trips. Clean and spacious cabin"
Cons: "Freezing cold in the cabin"

"They canceled my flight yesterday from Columbus Ohio so why ur sending me this shit"

"They canceled my flight yesterday only an hour for me to leave so am so disappointed by your airline I payed Covid test for $175 . Is hard to get hold of your customers service representative. Your Airline is a scammer"

Pros: "Booking, price"
Cons: "A little easier site navigation- understanding"

Pros: "Customer service by the crew"
Cons: "Lufthansa still charges full price like usual, but on a 8+ hour flight to serve a cat size meal of pasta soaked in some pesto sauce is unacceptable! Thank god I had lunch at Frankfurt before departure! Covid-19 should not be an excuse for lack of services! I work for a company which falls into the Essential business category and despite the pandemic we NEVER EVER compromised with the top quality of our product! I am so dissatisfied with Lufthansa and what they have become, pale shadow of a great company, very sad...."

Pros: "The crew was the best"

Cons: "Delayed flight made me miss my connection and spend a night in Frankfurt. Take off time, bag didn’t come out as priority, waited over 25 minutes."

Pros: "Flight was ontime"
Cons: "The boarding process ar newark is terrible, and the lady that was at the boarding gate was extremely unpolite with no service attitude at all - i have never seen before such a behavior"

Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "Connect flight time was cutting it short- sane scenario."

Cons: "Cramped economy seats compared to Bombay to Munich flight."

Cons: "The Soviet Union wants its airline back. This was perhaps the RUDEST airline experience I've ever experienced. I was at Frankfurt (FRA) airport waiting to board Air Moldova Flight 864 to Chisinau (KIV). Due to a delay caused by Frankfurt security (and no fault of my own), I was delayed in reaching the gate. Since it was past my boarding time, I grabbed my bags from the conveyor belt once past security without having time to repack. I arrived at the gate and the extremely rude Air Moldova gate agent on duty yelled at me and demanded that I give her my boarding pass. When I told her I needed to pack, she yelled that there was “no time for that”. When I searched for my pass, she again yelled and said “NOW!”. When I told her that it was not my fault that I arrived late since there was a delay at security, she said “Not my problem!”. After she checked my boarding pass, I tried to repack and she again yelled “There is no time. Go to the bus NOW!” I once again told her that it was not my fault I got delayed and she again yelled “NOT MY PROBLEM”. In addition to rude employees, the airline is clearly in violation of safety regulations. The safety card in the back seat pocket was written in ARMENIAN – and Armenian only, thanks to the plane having been leased and Air Moldova not appropriately changing the safety cards. How did they expect people who read Romanian or Russian (the local languages) or English to understand it! On top of that, the plane was easily 20 years old or more and dirty. If they can't even keep a plane clean or have the appropriate safety cards, what else are they not maintaining. Do not fly this terrible airline!"

Cons: "Flight was 45 minutes late arriving, causing me to miss my connection to Lufthansa and forcing reroute of whole trip."

Pros: "Leg room, comfortable seats, staff great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"

Pros: "Short flight with swift and effective service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I din't like the fact that Lufhtansa company uses double standards for the countries where they have their flights. From USA, San Jose, Ca, to Frankfurt, Germany everything was good (flight on 08/31/2018 - 09/01/2018). They have been very profesional, beganing wih the boarding time untill the arrival in Frankfurt. The flight to Romania was a different story. They haven't been very professional at all. The flight had a delay and nobody said a word. It was just a clerck there who didn't tell to the Lufthansa passengers for a while anything about our delay. So, finally, he said after 15-20 minutes that our fligt will be later, 20 minutes, than the scheduled time on our tickets. They seemed do not care too much about the Romanian passengers."

Cons: "never got to goddamn frankfurt"

Pros: "My previous flights with Lufthansa have been in business class, which is fabulous. However, on this occasion flew economy because I got an exceptionally cheap ticket. I was pleasantly surprised. Obviously the seat was narrower, but had plenty of legroom. The food in economy in Lufthansa is better than most airlines’ business class meals. The crew is very courteous and professional. You really can’t go wrong with this airline."
Cons: "There was no downside."

Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("

Pros: "The aircraft was great. A bit wobbly on take off and landing, but overall spacious and comfortable seating. The seats had many position options which was amazing. Meal service tableware was clean and pleasant to use. Food was also great. Also a very wide selection of entertainment options! Also, good flying from the pilot’s crew. Flight was on time."
Cons: "The servicing crew in the business cabin was inexperienced and unrefined. The flight attendants seemed to just want to “get it over with” with questions like “are you done?” The attendants wanted to take our drink order as soon as we got in without giving us a chance to settle into our seats and kept hovering over us until I had to ask her to give us a couple of minutes. The airline did not stock enough snack and ran out mid flight. We had to wait for the next meal service which was not fun. I ended up getting a sweet drink just to get by. Internet, which was paid, was so slow that I got tired of watching it trying to load the pages and gave up. Eventually, the connection completely stalled even though I still had over an hour remaining of the 4 hour package. I used maybe an hour of the total purchase. Total waste because I couldn’t get any work done. Overall, I did not think this was an experience worth a business class ticket."

Pros: "Lufthansa service is better than any us carrier"
Cons: "They didn’t track my luggage Lost bag for two days"

Cons: "I wish service could be a bit faster. Due to turbulence our second meal could not be served at all. Not sure why the passengers were not served as they were seated. Some passengers were served, some didn’t get served at all. It was a long journey coming from Boston. Imagine arriving home after 1 am without any food."

Pros: "Ended up flying out of London Heathrow, not Munich do to the cancelled Lufthansa flights. Very stressful and exhausting but did get back the same day as scheduled."

Pros: "I had 20 mins to transfer from one flight to the next on a bank holiday weekend full of passengers. The staff stopped me and two other passengers to completely expedite our transfer process and I made the connecting flight."

Pros: "The service was amazing. Why can’t US carriers be like them?!"

Pros: "Beautiful new plane — supremely clean"

Pros: "Food is provided"
Cons: "Delayed 6 hours on the plane"

Pros: "We had more room with a 2-seat array in the middle of the plane. It was more comfortable than the 3 seat array."

Cons: "* The gate was with bus, and not a direct terminal connection * There were no drawing sets for kids * The food was either overheated or somehow impacted - didn't look proper"

Pros: "I liked how smooth the boarding was handled. The flight attendants where polite and helpful. A very comfortable flight."
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "Staff wasn’t particularly friendly, seats were the most uncomfortable ever"

Cons: "entertainment was not working! the flight to Frankfurt was late and I missed the connection to rome! crew told me to run for the connection but ad the gate they told me they had already put me on a later flight! no need to run like crazy across the airport if they had me already booked me on a later flight! missed my train connection in rome to bari...asked the airport lufthansa rep. to put me on a flight to bari but they told me they couldn't do it although there was a flight available!"

Pros: "The short transist time in Frankfurt"

Cons: "Due to repair aircraft equipmen, almost 1h delay my flight."

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and caring. The food was great. Very enjoyable trip!!"

Cons: "Not there. Still in germany"

Cons: "the crew was horrible and rude"

Pros: "Good service on the flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over an hour once we were on the tarmac without an explanation and then baggage delivery in Faro was some of the slowest I've evert experienced."

Cons: "The staff was very unfriendly and they had inconsistent rules with carry on baggage."

Cons: "The second flight they board us then left us on the bus in the parking lot for 25 minutes breathing airplane fuel."

Pros: "Everything seemed to run smoothly."
Cons: "No issues this leg"

Pros: "The flight from Frankfurt to Newark, NJ was good. Flight crew was courteous and movies made the time go quickly. Food and drinks were also plentiful. I have no complaints other than having to pay extra for seat assignments."

Pros: "Nothing, this flight never happened because of the strike."
Cons: "Luthansa rebooked me on BA, and stripped away my Premium Upgrade seating, giving me economy, an aisle seat next to a bathing-challenged male. It was disgusting and re-injured my leg wound."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was very friendly. Everything went perfectly."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Addis airport is a disaster, Really long queues and badly organised, Our flight left 20 minutes late and in turn made our landing 1 hour later. The flight attendants on Ethiopian air are very lazy, they dont respond to the service button been pushed, and their English is not that good,"

Cons: "I thought lying while smiling went out of the airline business 20 years ago. Lufthansa rebooked my husband and I - telling us all would be well. That was the start of one of the worst travel days ever - running through airports; and culminating the end of an anniversary trip with my husband and I having to sit separately in center seats for 8.5 hours. Perhaps spoiled food or the lack of the pre-ordered gluten-free meals left one of us ill for the week since. Days of headaches with Lufthansa leading up to these two flights - online, on the phone and in person. We ended up on a full United flight with some of the most humorless in-flight staff ever."

Pros: "Crew inside the plane was lovely."
Cons: "The crew woman that assist us in Barcelona Airport counters for the check-in was really rude asking very personal question that I still don't understand why and questioning our passports without any reason. My partner and I felt very uncomfortable and that was a totally unnecessary situation. After that everything was totally great during the flight."

Pros: "Everything was good, on time and without problems"
Cons: "Chairs might have been more comfortable"

Pros: "All was very proffessional"

Pros: "Again, excellent customer service. Can't say enough."

"Just average"

Cons: "I had paid for an upgrade to sit in the front of the cabin with extra legroom (row 14A). When I boarded a man sat it my seat. He had not paid for the upgrade, but the crew let him stay in my seat. I had asked him to social distance but he continued to sit right behind me bo matter which seat I moved to. He argued with the crew until they gave up and let him stay. They did not check his boarding pass or ask him to move to his assigned seat I found a different seat away from him but I don’t see the point in paying for extra legroom when the crew let’s people who haven’t paid for it sit it those seats. I felt harassed by the man and was very uncomfortable the whole flight. I am considering my next step, I think I should at least receive a refund for the upgrade I paid for."

Pros: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "The seating space is horrendous, I am 5 ft 8 and felt like I was sitting with my knees at my chest, horrible horrible seating"

No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."

Cons: "Too hot inside the aircraft"

Cons: "Staff rude and short"

Pros: "The friendliness of the crew"

Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."

Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."

Pros: "Helpful and kind crew"

Cons: "Flight canceled, poor communication from the airline to the passengers. Møre than 5 hrs delay"

Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk. This would mean that others did not have to queue for 25 minutes because the check in girls also had to deal with them"

Pros: "Crew was excellent -kind nice and very attentive"
Cons: "Entertainment went out mid flight. Had to be reset off 30 mins but cam back up"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"

Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"

Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."

Pros: "."

Pros: "The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful."
Cons: "The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be."

Pros: "The service, entertainment, food, the crew, the aircraft were excellent."
Cons: "They put us in a Transavia plane."

Pros: "For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies."
Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"

Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."

Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"

Pros: "We love the flight all the way"

Pros: "Plane service"
