Pros: "The crew was very sweet and very helpful, especially to kids who were constantly thirsty or hungry."
Cons: "We were supposed to take the flight 8 hours earlier. I’m not sure flight with such short connections should be sold at all - with the previous flight being late 20 minutes, we were met at arrival gate by Qatar airlines employee that told us our connecting flight left without us. They helped us with everything onward- getting new boarding passses, hotel and meal vouchers, but all of this should not have been needed if such short connections were not sold."

Pros: "Everything! Great budget price that still delivers first class service. The stopover in Doha is wonderful. Could not be more pleased!"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Excellent price. When comparing the flight from Manila to Doha and Doha to Philadelphia. The flight to Philadelphia was excellent,superior due to the crew and aircraft."
Cons: "Waiting area at the Manila gate was over crowed, needed to sit on the floor. The entertainment system on the 777 was hard to operate, slow to respond."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Such an uncomfortable flight. Poorly organized, was a total chaos. Will never fly Qatar again!"

Pros: "Food OK"
Cons: "Massive delay over 15 hours! I was shocked. Once arrived, also luggage was delayed ADDITIONAL 7 hours"

Pros: "The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Long hours from Doha to Atlanta"

Pros: "Nothing. Despite booking Qatar Airways for both legs the transfer distance is incredibly far. Only just made connecting flight!"
Cons: "Why does it take 2 hours to get all passengers on board? Why only one exit/ entry point to board/ disembark for an Airbus 440? The mist inefficient organization of passenger logistics you can imagine Hopeless airports..useless Airlines"

Pros: "Helpful staffs and great stewardess!"
Cons: "Too many babies this time! Scary bathroom 2 hours before landing. Food portion can be improved. Entertainment screen and choices can be more considerate!"

Pros: "Service offered by crew, arranged veg food when found not listed. Boston to Doha veg food loading needs improvement."

Cons: "The crew have very strong accent which makes difficult to understand them, but they are very nice and helpful"

Pros: "Comfort and service"
Cons: "Food breaks should be more"

Pros: "The crew were so nice. But flights are very long, and coach is incredibly crowded & uncomfortable. Beverage service is frequent and generous with a good variety of fruit juices, soft drinks, red or white wine, etc."
Cons: "Using the video screen is a mystery tour - badly programmed. The Doha airport is an architect's Ego Trip and badly laid out, extremely long walks to get anywhere, ferocious prices for anything (carry snacks for your layover!). The smoking lounge doesn't even have a proper exhaust system so smoke permeates the terminal in the vicinity. Plus 4 bar stools hogged by rude, arrogant young Arab men who have NO respect or consideration for elders, disabled, etc. Incident with boarding passenger in Saigon was VERY badly handled & delayed departure over an hour, risking connections for a number of passengers. They cannot handle things well, yet crew is basically nice, kind. Food is AWFUL; saving grace is fresh fruit, roll & butter, yoghurt - the nice little side dishes."

Pros: "Qatar Airways Is Fantastic Service"
Cons: "Service and Food Selection"

Pros: "Good spacing. comfy seats."
Cons: "Staff were just not aware of clients needs. walked passed without even glancing to see raised hands, etc"

Pros: "I was the third person in the line. The ticket agent couldn't find my ticket as multiple tickets were booked on my name and all tickets showed X mark. After 20-30 minutes of wait, I finally got my ticket but the security and custom lines were very long by that time. Never flying Qatar again."

Cons: "We normally fly business class, but this was a quick side trip so we settled for economy."

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: "Service"
Cons: "Mashed connection"

Pros: "Slept most of the way"

Pros: "Punctual and clean with a friendly staff!"

Pros: "I loved the kind and friendly staff of Qatar airline. They were very organized and helpful. We missed our flight due to delays but they took great car of us and guided us through the process."

Cons: "No Chinese food to choose"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I like the space, equipment that work Space in comparison with other airlines but could be even better once human rights become more important than cashing in ( that is a comment meant for all airlines"

Cons: "Nothing really."

Cons: "4 hour delay"

Cons: "Better accommodation for handicap passengers."

Cons: "Notes were in the computer that our flight was delayed in someone at Delta told us we had to re book because we were not 2 hours prior to our flight after arriving in a cab. Delta error. Other lady told us to run to a security and get to the gate which we did and there were notes in the system and t"

Cons: "They canceled my flight"

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Tight plane and late!"

Pros: "Yravelling goes well when workers are competent and organized."
Cons: "Boarding front to back seems counterintuitive. People carrying 2 bags appear more hassled bumping through people to get to their seats further. Ack"

Pros: "Good service this morning"
Cons: "All good"

Cons: "Crew wasn’t approachable"

Pros: "Speedy check in. Friendly crew."
Cons: "The tv kept having problems. In all three seats we were in. We could only watch tv but the audio kept cutting out. Annoying to say the least"

Cons: "Compostable"

Pros: "Dinner was good, entertainment also"
Cons: "Thought thecComfort Plus seats were not as good as Air Canada. Air Canada also serves Premium Economy the same good and drinks etc as Business Class. Did not feel special in Comfort Plus. Sorry just my comparison and opinion"

Pros: "I really liked it all."

Pros: "Short and easy"

Pros: "Friendly staff. Very comfortable seats"

Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than an hour. My seat's entertainment system was broken, so an 8 hour flight with not much to do other than sleep."

Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."

Pros: "Everything else was okay"
Cons: "We arrived late & the connecting flight was far away got there with door closed 10 minutes before they left. But wouldn't let us on another 3 or 4 passengers. Needless to say are pre paid ride to the Cove we missed and we probably miss our dinner t 6to 7"

Pros: "Nicest staff"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Cons: "Paid extra for a seat that didn't have any extra leg room. The entertainment system was broken for the whole plane during the first 2 hours."

Pros: "El cumplimiento de vuelos"

Cons: "I am very short (5’0”) but there just isnt enough room i cant imagine what a big person feels on a 9 hour overseas flight."

Pros: "On time, clean cabin, attentive and professional flight attendants, plenty of overhead storage."
Cons: "Nothing. No complaints."

Pros: "Service was good. Was upgraded for more space."
Cons: "Intertainment unit was not working correctly. Locked up after movie was over. No offers of any sort from crew about issue."

Pros: "Seating was ok but had better for a premium coach."
Cons: "The tv screen. Touch pad was not working properly on both legs."

Cons: "You messed up my life with your poor service."

Pros: "Smooth loading and unloading"
Cons: "Customers don’t listen to the Flight attendant"

Pros: "Free movies. Clean and modern look to airplane."
Cons: "Could not get wifi to work."

Pros: "I like the snacks they are not giving out on the flights. It seems that Delta is trying to make the flying experience nicer instead of more tedious and uncomfortable like many other airlines, which is appreciated."
Cons: "The flights were both operated by Delta but booked through WestJet, and the flights themselves were fine. The booking was through WestJet (found the flight on kayak which kicked me over to West Jet's site) and check in was a pain. Their code did not work for their site or Delta's, I had to FB message them both leaving and returning to ask for the correct one, and the first request took them hours to answer. I'll just book Delta next time and save myself the trouble."

Pros: "No food, no entertainment but the crew were nice and the process was painless. Recommended"

Pros: "Quiet, friendly, fast and efficient. What you'd want for a flight at 6am"

Pros: "It all went very well. Arrived 20 minutes ahead of time. Wifi movies were great. Stewardesses were very efficient."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic. I generally love flying Delta and find their crew to always be very professional and kind."
Cons: "As this was a smaller, regional jet, there weren't a lot of amenities. But that's fine, it's only a 40-minute flight!"

Pros: "Staff were awesome. Give them a raise."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Boarding was very organized and quick. Slight delay taking off but not bad for JFK. Lovely crew. Bumpy flight but the captain kept us informed. Food better than expected. Flight arrived early but no gate so we had to wait."
Cons: "OMG! The seats are obnoxiously close together. I could only sit perfectly upright and even then my knees were pressed tightly against the seat in front of me. I am only 5'7". Impossible to rest due to lack of space. I tried to put my head down on my tray table but couldn't since it hit the seat in front of me. Mid flight my 13 year old daughter got back spasms. Upon arrival we could barely walk and looked like two old women limping down the jetway. No idea how a tall or larger person could have even sat down."

Pros: "They held the plane for me. Due to customs and TSA, I had to run across the airport, and then a bus to the correct terminal to catch the plane. I arrived at the gate a couple of minutes after it was closed. THANKFULLY the gate agent came back (he was on the plane) and issued my seat ticket (it had been upgraded) and led me to the plane. So, didn't miss my flight, AND had a seat upgrade."
Cons: "Nothing. Despite the slight delay to allow me on board, and the loooong line on the runway, we still made it to our destination ahead of schedule."

Pros: "Very nice employees. Coke, peanuts good."
Cons: "Outgoing plane had tv screens, large, with good movie choices, but was an hour late. Returning, if you brought a phone, you can get an app. My phone is about four inches. No good movies. Seats even smaller on this "new plane." Deboarding chaos. Everyone unhappy. Hour late again."

Pros: "When I finally got on a flight (see what I didn't like), the crew was very helpful and the flight was comfortable."
Cons: "When I checked in online, I received boarding passes for the first two legs of the trip, but was told to see a gate agent in Amsterdam for the boarding pass for that flight. It turns out that there was a problem, attributed by one of the KLM staff that I talked with to "a communication problem between Delta and KLM." As a result, I was finally given a stand-by boarding pass. Since the flight was full, I was denied boarding. After hours of trying to figure this out, the KLM staff put me on a flight for the next day and organized a stay at an airport hotel. The KLM staff were very nice, but it seemed to take a very long time to figure this out. They also failed to note that the denial of boarding in the records, which caused a problem in my return flight. The upshot: I missed a follow-on flight to Budapest and had to pay a huge rebooking fee for that missed flight. I also missed a day of my vacation."

Pros: "The crew was nice but seemed super stressed out."
Cons: "The plane was old, no entertainment was provided, tight space with little leg room and our plane departed late."

Cons: "Was never able to get on flight. The plane lost a windshield wiper and didn't have any spare parts."

Pros: "The crew were friendly and efficient. The seats were narrow, but as to be expected. Meals were fine. Will fly Delta again and again."
Cons: "Flight Minneapolis to Detroit was delayed which caused us to miss our original flight and go out a day later."

Pros: "On time Clean airplane Smooth ride Friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good pilot. Decent flight attendants. All good."
Cons: "The price."

Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "I'm not sure if this staff is exhausted or just over there job, but they cow towed to a woman who made major complaints about the air conditioning and even gave her points to help her deal with the temperature. Strange. They were only gold stays and I'm only Platinum and didn't complain once. Oh well, that's delta, we all deal with their silence when we post anything that is unfair."

Pros: "All restroom floors were wet. I have seen this in others 767's too. Is this a 767 phenomenon"

Cons: "Entertainment center did not work. I paid for wifi and did not work and need my money back. The headphone jack for the tv did not work."

Pros: "Good choices were great and tasted great also.."
Cons: "seats not so comfortable"

Pros: "Drinks and great stewardesses"
Cons: "No phone charger."

Pros: "Lufthansa doesn't disappoint"
Cons: "Not much to ask for on a 60 min flight"

Cons: "The seats were absolutely uncomfortable"

Cons: "Our flight was scheduled to leave at 7:00 a.m. We arrived at the airport at 4:00 a.m. to check in. When we tried to check in the lady told us our reservation was canceled. Luckily an airport employee worked his magic and had us added back onto that flight."

Pros: "Staff was friendly and boarding was easy"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Efficient loading. Flight was on time. Nice crew."

Pros: "they did good job"
Cons: "security held me up due to venice security not stamping my passport,,,i was finally able to find the original ticket due to free wifi in airport and get it straightened out though it would have been awful if i had not been early early"

Pros: "That the plane brought me safely to San Diego"
Cons: "Paid entertainment on a 12 hour flight"

Cons: "Late departure"

Pros: "Food and overall service"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "It was a smooth ride overall, the staff was comfort us."
Cons: "The food was terrible is like each year the value goes down."

Pros: "REQUESTED FOOD WAS NOT AVAILABLE AND STAFF WAS RUDE"

Pros: "service was great"

Pros: "Surprisingly tasty breakfast."
Cons: "Online check in didn't work. The site kept telling me I needed a visa although I chose the option that stated I had an ESTA. Also mt destination country was not in the list of countries and there was no way to fill it in. The check- in agent in Cairo was cheeky and unhelpful. I was told I couldn't get the aisle seat assignment that I had selected online when attempting to do the online check in. The crew also stated I couldn't switch to an aisle seat because " we are completely booked" although all 3 rows in front of me had empty aisle seats all the way from Cairo to Frankfurt so I was stuck in a middle seat which the person in front completely reclining their seat for 4 hrs. At 5'10" it was not only uncomfortable but a painful flight. Things improved somewhat from Frankfurt to Miami but was still pretty tight due to the reclining seats. Luckily I got an aisle seat on that leg and the middle seat next to me was open. There was no entertainment on the Cairo to Frankfurt leg."

Cons: "Very crowded, the lady behind us was coughing her lungs out the whole flight. Flight was smooth but arrived behind schedule. Actually landed on time but we didn't get to the terminal for almost 15 minutes. The Frankfurt airport is a nightmare, worst designed airport I have been through."

Pros: "Absolutely the worst flight land and air stewards i havr ever seen. Would never flu with them againrude groun personel"

Pros: "The entertainment was good on board"
Cons: "The cabin crew was a bit rude"

Pros: "Everything was excellent but the food could be better especially from Lagos to Frankfurt"

Cons: "They cancelled the flight and did not help at all for rescheduling."

Pros: "Ease of boarding, and a timely take off. The crew was attentive and professional. The entertainment available made the 9 hours go by quickly!"
Cons: "The food was edible but not the best. The bread was especially disappointing-- ice cold and doughy! I hate those reclining seats. When you have your meal tray down it is impossible to move."

Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "EVERYTHING! They put us on a United flight. 11 hours on the plane with NO ENTERTAINMENT. They apologized at the end and told us to all fill out a complaint at united.com. I did and still haven't heard back. The flight attendants were rude and it was a horrible flight. Worst international flight I have taken in my life. And it was for an adoption appointment with a judge in Riga, and we barely made it."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "This was a United flight from SF to FRA. The food tasted horrible and I didn't eat any of it. Green Tea ice cream is a very unique flavor that not everyone likes. What's wrong with vanilla or chocolate, a more neutral, well-liked flavor? The dinner was over spiced and looked unappetizing. The breakfast look like someone threw up. I hate to sound so negative, but it was really awful. The flight, itself, was fine. Nice crew and smooth trip."

Pros: "Clean and comfortable aircraft."

Pros: "The aircraft was very clean."

Pros: "Clean, good pilots and quick"
Cons: "Food was bad"

Cons: "Umm. It was cancelled due to union workers striking. It was great to spend our last day in Barcelona stressing over whether we could get back home."

Pros: "Crew and flight were fine."
Cons: "Seating was cramped. Reclining seats are a bother. I'd love to see the seat ahead slide forward as it reclines to avoid invading the space for the passenger behind."

Pros: "very roomy seat for a small plane."
Cons: "Boarding occurred from two doors which caused long delays because people had to try and get by each other in the narrow isle. If they want to use two doors to load the plane they should at least direct the passengers that have seats at the back to go to the back and vice versa."

Pros: "The staff was so prompt and friendly"
Cons: "Cramped leg space, no entertainment"

Pros: "I have liked everything in lufthansa there was nothing to complain about thanks lufthansa for your respectful and helpful"

Pros: "A fast, smooth, and easy flight with a polite and efficient crew. The Frankfurt airport needs some type of internal transportation or reorganization because the size and shape make it a challenge to go through passport control and find your gate in time to transfer."
Cons: "The snack consisted of sugary packaged cookies. After waking at 6 a.m. to catch my flight, I would have preferred plain yogurt with fruit or muesli, or at least a nutritious nutty bar such as the KIND brand. The boarding consisted of everyone standing in a disorganized line next to another long line so that I was not sure if I was in the right place and felt nervous as the time to board drew near. Staff did not seem to be communicating what was happening and were not circulating. I had to ask fellow passengers if I was in the right line and on the right bus. We pushed away from the gate early. This worked against me at the beginning of my vacation when I missed my flight by 5 minutes due to the disorganized nature of the Frankfurt airport and its massive size."

Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "Got to sit in the top deck of the A380; Luftansa sets aside a small portion of the top deck for economy passengers. Flight was much quieter for economy passengers than on any other plane I've ever flown because the top deck is further from the engines. It was an extraordinary flight."
Cons: "Food was OK, but nothing special."

Cons: "their website did not allow changes nor did it provide a number to call"

Pros: "Everything was top notch… Wi-Fi, food, entertainment, comfort"

Pros: "Service was good. In flight selection of movies, music, tv etc was good. Flight camera was cool. Got a snack and drink in a 50 minute flight."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Thank you very much for taking care of my mother she is 79 years old doesn't speak English. and needed wheel chair. and she was thrilled happy and very comfortable thruw all your flights. I want to thank you personally from the bottom of my heart because it's very hard for me to send her overseas with her condition and no language. you guys awesome thank you very much again."

Pros: "Entertainment."
Cons: "Staff was extremely sassy and unhelpful when I had been traveling for 40 hours."

Pros: "Check in smooth and professional. Please change places with Asia air so you are in front of rather than behind the hoard of people."
Cons: "On my flight from Seattle to Frankfurt I had one stewardess repeatedly skip me. She was a bit older. I thought after the first overlook she would take extra care but did not. This resulted in me having to ask the crew to repeat their previous steps just for me. "Hi, I know you are serving coffee but I wanted red wine". She was a bit clipped about having to repeat steps but what was I to do? She never looked up enough to see my hand and clearly didn't look at my face. She also didn't pick up my hand towel. I essentially had to rely on the rest of the crew but the care from this lady started to feel purposefully negligent of me. The rest of the staff was friendly and efficient. I also thought we were supposed to get an appertiff...one was never offered. Couldn't check in online. Was fine once I got to the countr but could you trade space with Asia air? It makes sense to have them at the end as they have a huge hoard of people it would be nice not to have to go through and several spots to check in. Check in at the desk otherwise was smooth and professional."

Cons: "I was seated next to a family with an autistic child. Because they had checked in late, they were seated separately. The autistic child was unsetted by having to sit separated from both parents, causing quite a commotion during the whole flight. I couldn't rest during the whole flight. Lufthansa should do a better job with accommodating the needs of special cases like this, preferably when they book the flight or before they board. SFO boarding was slow and confusing. There was a backup being caused by having to seat 6 or more passengers in a wheelchair. Then, I followed signs for boarding in Economy, which was at the front of the A380. I was forced to the aisles to the back of the plane, where I prompty collided with other passengers that were boarding the rear entrance of the plane. Why wasn't I just asked to board from the rear entrance to avoid the congestion?"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat pitch is miserable, amplified failings in food and internet access."

Cons: "I had tried to postpone my return date, but found it extremely inconvenient dealing with vayama, the service Kayak linked me to. I had to call them at their Amsterdam office to arrange a different itinerary, only to be emailed in the middle of the night with the news that that itinerary was no longer available, and a replacement one would cost much more. Sadly, I was not able to deal with Lufthansa directly. Doubt I would use vayama again."

Pros: "Check in staff were excellent Flight staff were also excellent Seating was fine for short flight"
Cons: "The boarding process was a little random but in the end worked out OK. Breakfast food was not great, but that's because I forgot to ask for a special meal and can't eat dairy."

Pros: "Courteous crew"

Pros: "Very positive and responsive crew! A fresh cup of coffee I received when I requested one was delicious. And,one of the crew members made me a cup of tea before they had started serving it."

Pros: "The frienliness of the crew, adecuate food, bathrooms in FRA-PHL leg."
Cons: "The frankfurt airport. Land on Gate A and had to walk 20 minutes to ger to gate Z (up and down escalators), the bathrooms in airplane from Ben Gurion to Frankfurt (very small and not enough head clearance at the toilet). The confort of seats on flight over 3 hours of sitting (I am 74 years old)."

Pros: "Very prompt, good food. We encourage trip very much!"

Pros: "good amount of room on the plane"
Cons: "magazine on the plane is boring"

Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."

Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Delay due to strike"

Cons: "I congratulate the KLM crew!"

Pros: "The crew and the timing were ok"

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Cons: "Long haul flight made pleasant by KLM"

Cons: "Transfer point needs upgrade."

Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"

Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."

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: "Nice flight ...was comfortable travel ...good food.Thanks"
Cons: "No such things"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."

Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."

Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"

Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."

Pros: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"

Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"

Cons: "The 767 is configured oddly and th business class seats are so narrow it feel like you are sleeping in a coffin"

Pros: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."

Pros: "Helpful and smiling cabin crew."

Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."

Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."

Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."

Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."

Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."

Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."

Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."

Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."

Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour which meant I missed by train at Southampton by 10 minutes and subsequent bus connect home. Next bus would have been 2 hours later so 45 minute walk home from train station. Didn't bother with food offering, put off by that supplied from Hannover to Schiphol."

Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"

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: "Free wee cake."
Cons: "Nothing in particular."

Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"

Pros: "Food and staff were great"
Cons: "Entertainment system old and not as many options as other KLM flight. No power on aircraft for charging"

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."

Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."

Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"

Pros: "The flight crew were kind, polite, and attentive."
Cons: "Bussing to the plane was a bit odd, but the crew remained organized in doing so. When we arrived to the plane, they had both entrances open so that those sitting near the rear of the plane would enter from the back. Plane was a little chilly, but I have come to expect that one most flights."

Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"

Pros: "Almost missed flight due to line at customs and having to pick up suitcase and check in again, they did wait for me though"

Pros: "Ontime and efficient boarding with polite crew."
Cons: "Nothing to improve. I slept the whole flight so couldn’t evaluate all aspects."

Cons: "No food, no entertainment. Ridiculous!! Not even a damn sandwich!!"

Cons: "Long delay due to weather"

Pros: "The food was amazing"
Cons: "The seats could have more space"

Pros: "Professional and courteous crew"
Cons: "Nothing, was a pleasant flight"

Cons: "Everything was excellent"

Cons: "I will never fly with spirits again.. ever"

Pros: "Fairly new plane."
Cons: "Only airline that made us check in our luggage; and charged us an exorbitant amount (+/- $90 per luggage) in doing so. No customer service at all. 1st attendant wouldn’t let us check-in at the counter, and 2nd attendant made us check in our carry-on despite it only being 2kg over. We could’ve moved some items around. When we boarded the plane, we saw multiple people whose carry-on looked suspiciously over the weight limit. We felt singled out. It was obvious that this airline only cares about profit and does not care about the customer. Attendants were rude and not helpful. Needless to say I will nit fly with this airline again."

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Hottest I have ever been in a plane (we were in 40G and H) and I “run cold”. We were sweating and drinking water like crazy (they gave us one bottle and did not routinely walk the aisles handing out more). Luckily we brought our own water. Early June and headed to Scandinavia, not someplace hot. Seats were hard and I put my unused blankets under me."

Pros: "Leg room, bottle of water waiting at seat, as well as pillow and blanket. Large number of entertainment choices."
Cons: "Only one free drink per meal, otherwise only tea or coffee."

Pros: "On time, movies, service staff"

Pros: "No comment since very short flight."
Cons: "My husband was unable to check in on line. SAS when contacted by phone which was difficult to do because it is hard to locate their number had no explanation other than maybe due to security. We missed a tour due to the time spent (unsuccessfully) trying to solve this problem."

Pros: "On Time, Friendly,well maintained equipment"
Cons: "No free drinks inner Europe...except water"

Pros: "Nice staff, comfortable."
Cons: "Not sure why they only have like 20 movies, most of which are not good. Delta has hundreds of movies to choose from. Old and new. When entertainment is included in the high price of these long haul trips, it helps to have a semi-decent selection."

Pros: "Terrible"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "And no video either, power point also did not work. Had booked an aidle, but change of aircraft left me in tje middle :("

Pros: "premium economy"
Cons: "nothing, it was great!"

Cons: "I had requested an aisle seat and on both flights to and from Stockholm and Chicago had to sit on the very last row in the middle seat between 2 people who seemed to exceed the "weight allowance" that seem so important now when you flight unless you spend a lot a money on the ticket and it then becomes irrelevant !!"

Pros: "My Plus ticket brought me an excellent cold lunch despite the shortness of the flying time (only 1:10). The seats need more recline!"

Cons: "The flight was good but it seemed like the heat was on instead of the a/c. besides that it was fine."

Cons: "ended up having to put both of our large carry-on items under the seat in front of us while the flight attendants stuffed people's coats and jackets into the overhead"

Pros: "They did what they could..."
Cons: "Delay change of tire. Missed next flight Frankfurt- Dallas."

Pros: "Power plugs at all seats"
Cons: "2+ hrs late on departure, could not confirm follow on connecting flight. Could not select seats online. Airbus aircraft ventilation is weak. Movie selection was inadequate. No "free" alcohol and high prices. Pay WiFi in economy but "free" everywhere else"

Pros: "I was only charged half the price for my checked suitcase on the return flight - after I called SAS the day before departure."
Cons: "It doesn't really matter that other aspects of the flight were ok when I had to pay £60.00 for my one regular-size suitcase, and I don't find out until I am standing at the check-in counter. Why do travelers have to pay for checked luggage, at all?"

Pros: "I chose SAS since I have used this airline on most of my travels to Norway. It has been without any problems and I highly recommend it. The staff all try to make you comfortable and do not hesitate to get whatever you ask for. I have no plan to change plane. Thank you."
Cons: "I do not like the way they conduct their business from the office. I know they are very busy like any other airlines but please return our calls and answer questions as we are fully entitled to their attention using their airline. . Thank you."

Pros: "Flights on time"
Cons: "The flight to Sweden was very very bumpy. Lots of turbulence very scary"

Cons: "I was unable to check in over the mobile app nor online. Had to do everything at the ticket desk in both the US and overseas. Made me feel as though I didn't have a reservation in the system."

Pros: "the food was greqt"
Cons: "the boarding process has no order"

Pros: "Late delay and no service from flight staff"

Cons: "The 70 euro bag check fee"

Pros: "The flight was very comfortable. I came to know this after I feel asleep instantly after take off."
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Missed connection was re-routed by United directly to FRA"

Pros: "This flight was also one of the best I have taken. I enjoyed it very much."
Cons: "It was a little upsetting to see and hear one of the crew members be a little nasty with my sister when he asked her about the meal. She misunderstood and asked for chicken andvhe was quite nasty when he corrected her and gave her the two options."

Pros: "Smooth flight with friendly crew"
Cons: "Small plane"

Pros: "It was a pleasant flight with friendly service. Boarding was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Food choices and limited entertainment. I know that SAS need to remain competitive, but strict limits in drinks seems a bit cheap."

Pros: "The flight wasn't late and didn't crash."
Cons: "I paid for a business class ticket and was jammed in like a sardine no different than economy, then told "you get a lunch for free". Hundreds of dollars more for a $5.00 lunch is NOT why I booked business class!"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable. Two meals offered for the 10.5 hour nontstop flight between San Francisco and Copenhagen."
Cons: "A little more leg room. Ability to change seat once reservation made online. The SAS website does not show your seat relative to entire place seat availability. Would have liked 24 hour customer service by phone option. They are actually closed for phone calls at night."

Cons: "Rated low on food and entertainment because they didn't have any of such items... Not because they were bad."

Pros: "The food and onboard service was excellent THe entertainment was plentiful and varied."
Cons: "The seats were to close together. I am not one to get claustrophobia but 5 hours in I felt it and I nearly bolted off the plane after the 10+ hour flight. UGH. Shoulder to shoulder, knees touching the seat in front of you, and only a few inches to recline. UGH. We tried to upgrade when we arrived at Oslo and again in Stockholm but the personnel at both stations were rude and not helpful. UGH."

Pros: "One of the best we've experienced--very comfortable very spacious seats , The crew is very attentive and accommodating. We were fed three times and was offered beverages frequently."
Cons: "NONE"

Pros: "My seat did not recline."
Cons: "That the staff didn't seem to think it was a big deal."

Pros: "I am angry about the inability to contact a SAS person."
Cons: "You think I should of gotten frustrated on my vacation!!!"

Pros: "Good, comfortable plane and friendly crew."
Cons: "The food was mediocre."

Pros: "The flight was on time; boarding was straightforward."

Pros: "Flight was fine, cr"

Pros: "- Good selection of movies and very surprised and happy they're not censored! :-))) - Seats were fairly comfortable. - The boarding/seating process was good because when other people started to cut-in-line, SAS folks reiterated to those cutting in line that they need to go back to the end of the line and wait as others were waiting before them."
Cons: "- Only having one soft drink during the whole 9hr flight for SAS Go. Only coffee, tea and water are free. - Was thinking of upgrading because I had one extra baggage, but was told that I still wouldn't be eligible for one free extra baggage if I upgraded to SAS Plus NOR SAS Business - There was only one option for dinner, which was Meatballs. The meatballs were worse than IKEA ones. I'd rather eat the IKEA meatballs than those. I usually finish my main meal and I didn't eat it because it was that bad."

Cons: "The fight was cancelled due to the on-going Swedish pilot strike."

Pros: "Most flight attendants were very friendly and accommodating. Bathrooms were cleaner than most other airlines. Flight was on time."
Cons: "One male attendant was not so friendly. Seemed to have an attitude that it was beneath him to have to serve us. Food could use some improvement. Thought we would have a choice between two entrees, but were served the chicken without any explanation."

Pros: "Helpful staff."
Cons: "Taking a bus from the airplane to Frankfurt Airport is less than ideal, but it worked fine."

Pros: "The short flight felt like a domestic flight (even though it was going between two countries...one of which isn't in the EU) -- only soooo much easier and laid back than a US domestic flight."
Cons: "Not much not to like...it was a pleasant flight."
