Pros: "Food was okay and crew was okay"
Cons: "Seats were very narrow - Etihad has better seats. Entertainment system had poor sound"
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: "Great service onboard!!"
Cons: "Checkin at Zurich!!!Waited two hours in line to weigh in... Staff was friendly but not enough staff"
Pros: "Qatar is awesome. Amazing service and great new planes."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Transfer was messy, no screens or indications on sight when landed in Doha to transfer with a very short time. Boarding in Doha was extremely slow, some passengers had issues with their travel documents and instead of handling those issues on the side, they kept everyone waiting for over 15 minutes"
Pros: "Best airline I’ve ever flown. A lot more space and amenities for a great price. Boarding was easier and faster than any other airline I’ve ever taken"
Cons: "Wish there were a bit more movie selections but only because it was such a long flight"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and polite. The flights were on time, and the entertainment options were good. The Doha airport is quite nice, with many eating and retail options. although everything is very expensive, even by airport standards."
Cons: "My wife and I personally don't mind a selection that leans heavily toward Indian food, but I imagine others will not. The main courses were mediocre and the "sandwich" offered between meals on the 13+ hour flight was cold, soggy and inedible. The seats on our A350 were hard and not very comfortable, and the recline function was difficult to operate. Security at the Doha airport was confusing. We had to go through 3 separate checkpoints for our transfer, each with different rules and procedures. The final check at our departure gate was the worst, with impatient officials giving hurried instructions in heavily-accented English, and scolding if passengers didn't understand. I was sent back through a second time to remove my camera from the bag (and to be scolded by the agent), and was patted down a second time coming back through the x-ray, which had green-lighted me both times. It made me wonder if this was a reaction to the extra scrutiny that Arab passengers receive from our airport security in the USA."
Pros: "Service basically. For such a long haul flight they did everything they could to make it comfortable."
Cons: "They could have checked the bathrooms more often as trash bins were very full."
Cons: "It was too cold in the plane."

Pros: "Very nice"
Pros: "Food , Crew , Plane, Cleanliness and Entertainment were good."

Originally my booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but on the day of flight when I went to that airport , it was totally closed for operations and flights. And I asked people in the street e.g taxi drivers etc which airport my flight could be from. They told me that a new airport in Islamabad had become operational and my flight could be from the newer airport. I went to the new airport but I was late for boarding because my time was wasted in going first to the Benazir International Airport and then rerouting to the new airport. Fortunately the fight from Islamabad to Qatar was delayed and I was able to make it to the boarding and flew from Islamabad to Doha."

Pros: "Comfort, service, food"
Pros: "- Excellent entertainment. New movies in various languages."
Cons: "- Crew not very attentive with infant and infant needs (i.e. bassinet). - Only 2 full meals and 1 snack for a 15 hours flight. First meal (breakfast) was served about 2-3 hours after take-off. Flight took off at 10 am so perhaps first meal should have been lunch. - Heard another passenger requesting veg. meal but crew said they don't have any extras and only serve special meals for those who request before. For a flight in which 60-70% of passengers are Indians, some extra vegetarian meals should be available (for those who do not know how to book it in advance)."
Pros: "The seating had enough room which made us feel comfortable. Also, the food is is per expectations"
Pros: "A lot of newly released movies to choose from. Time goes a lot faster if you can watch three two hour movies back to back. Crew was friendly and helpful."

Cons: "Bumpy landing"
Pros: "Roomy and good service"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable, plenty of legroom, good entertainment options"

Pros: "Good flight with decent amenities Entertainment can be better. Food quality is going down byt still better than most"
Cons: "Food while trip to India was good But food while trip back to sfo was very bad"
Pros: "Everything was on time. Very comfortable. Nice service."
Pros: "I was okay till got to sit on their tight sits for 15 hours they could have done better. After 15 hours flight no one cared enough to guide us to rest place, because the next flight was not to the next day, was hoping to let us stay on the hotel. This was a disaster planning by the airline."
Pros: "Great airline and excellent sevice"
Cons: "Checkin associate at SFO was rude and told me that only light baggage is allowed in the plane during borading noticed several passengers with larger bags and sometime two bas as well. I was told I can only take one bag. This caused me to change my plans on what I can carry on my two small bags. This is also the reason why had to take a small handbag to keep everything I needed. I lost this bag at New Delhi airport. Had I been allowed the the standard tote and a laptop bag I may not have needed the extra hand bag and may not have lost my items. Emirates associate is partailly responsible for my lost items."
Cons: "I had given on line preference for Asian vegetarian food but was not served collection of booked luggage at cropusal at SFO ,was difficult for a senior citizen like me as there was commotion"
Pros: "The vegan meals were very good and tasty. I enjoyed the entertainment provided and the plane was very clean. At times the plane was very cold, however the blanket helped with that. It wasn't this flight but the flight from Tanzania to Dubai, the crew sprayed the plane and I would like to know what was sprayed as it was awful and what if any chemicals were sprayed on us. Perhaps it would be better to spray the plane before the passengers board the plane."
Cons: "There was only one flight attendant would didn't assist my friend when we asked her to please take my friend's food tray away. My friend Emily Bayne was having a major discomforting eye allergy attack. Emily eyes were burning, dry, turning red, and very itchy and she wanted to go to the bath room to run warms water over her eyes, however she had the food tray and so we push the attendant help button. But when the flight attendant came to see what we needed and we asked if she could please take Emily's food tray, she just said I will come back later for that. So I told Emily just go to the bathroom I will hold your food tray. Emily Bayne was seated in the middle and I had the aisle seat, 44H. While Emily was in the bathroom I complained to another flight attendant what had happened, she took our food trays and then told her supervisor what happened. The supervisor came shortly and assisted Emily by granting her request and providing her with two warm wet towels, and later 5 more. The supervisor and the other attendant that I complained to continue to check throughout the fljght to see if Emily needed anything else, which was nice and accommodating. The flight after that incident was good, as the supervisor immediately corrected the insensitive act of his flight attendant."
Cons: "All flights were delayed Boarding experience is not that great Not sufficient leg room, so cramped up Food was very average"
Cons: "Our Emirates flight was delayed for 21 hours. They didn't have enough non-vegetarian meals, we were forced to eat vegetarian breakfast and lunch throughout our inbound flight."

Pros: "Even though I was flying economy, the seats on the A380 were wide and comfortable and the entertainment onboard was very good."
Cons: "Cabin service"
Cons: "We were allowed down the jet way to board only to come to a closed plane door - waited for at least 5 minutes for plane door to be opened. Crew seemed tired and disengaged. Walked on the plane asked crew how they were and got less than good reply. In flight woman never smiled, overall crew seemed tired and as though they did not want to be there. Perhaps SFO based crew on way home? Tired from flight over to Dubai? But it was really noticeable and a real difference from the flight over to Dubai from SFO 2 weeks earlier."
Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment was good"
Cons: "No foot rest for a long flight."
Cons: "We arrived onetime yet Emirates did not have a gate at SFO so we were parked on the tarmac for over an hour after a 16 hours flight. When we got thru immigration in record time due to the newly installed kiosks, we waited for 2.5hours to get our luggage, there was only one carousel open for an entire A380 airplane with all its luggage and the boxes were piling up on each other, some of them were crushed due to overloading, it took them 2 hours to open a second carousel to offload all of the bags. During this entire time, the Emirates representatives were unhelpful, the local SFO personnel were quite disorganized as well."
Cons: "I would never ever travel on Emirates They got the passenger off the plane due to a chip issue on one of the passengers British passport , all 4 passengers were stranded in Dubai for 72 hours without any help with accommodation or food , 3 passengers were kids and they were not allowed to board without any reason , finally re routed to London without a connecting flight to USA , this is day 6 and still fighting with them for a connecting flight This has turned into the worst night mare , have so far spend 948 cell phone minutes , several phone calls , several supervisors involved but no resolution I am seeking legal help in this case as I have everything on my end and still no where Also when contacted vayama booking agency , every time wait was over 45 mins to 1:50 mins , have records of all calls and wait times I was bounced back bra travel agency and Emirates and still no where"
Pros: "Emirates has never disappointed me in service. They are consistent in upping their game in service and comfort to their customers. I have tried multiple airlines over the years to fly to India but nothing beats Emirates."

Cons: "nothing, pretty much perfect!"
Pros: "Courteous and attentive crew from baggage check in thru baggage claim."
Cons: "We are a little hard of hearing. It was hard to hear the attendant when giving directions over the intercom. The speech was garbled and directions spoken too fast. I am not referring to the safety speech. Recommend slowing down so that we have more time to process what was spoken."
Pros: "Crew was great flight was comfortable however checking in bags and printing boarding pass was slow and also very unorganized"
Cons: "Checking in bags and printing boarding passes were long unorganized lines of people"
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. The food and drinks on board are free and they are an abundance of snacks, much more than we dreamed. The flight attendants are excellent"
Cons: "No. Keep up the good work!"
Pros: "Craig in first cabin flight crew was amazing. :))))"
Pros: "Crew was super helpful and kind. Pesto pasta was the best airplane food I’ve ever had in coach."
Pros: "There was one stewardess that really made the trip feel less "restricted" in the way she would greet, talk, serve, and just being what I always experienced good international flight staff to be. I wish I was able to get her name so I can praise the airlines for hiring such a great staff like her."
Cons: "There was a medical issue and Virgin Atlantic refused to accept the ticket code - for any price - toward a new ticket. I paid for a new ticket and took another airline."
Pros: "It was empty so we were told we could move around in the empty seats"
Cons: "Food was basically carbs, carbs and more carbs (especially if vegetarian). Some diversity, please. Staff forgot requests on a couple of occasions (Economy Delight cabin)."
Cons: "Good overall"
Pros: "Nobody are better hosts than the British. Great service, lovely people."
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "MEL/AKL 7/7 FLIGHT CANCELLED. NO NOTIFICATION SENT. Online system down. .....try later. Had to call Philippines. Eventually got transferred to Air NZ 777.Great flight .... would never use Virgin again. AKL/MEL FLIGHT 13/7 CHANGED FROM 6:30 TO 7:50 TO 8:10. No advice. Online system down. Unable to get updated status. 20mins call to Philippines. No apologies.Ended up on an A330 800 .No USB points. Got a seat, but everything from cushions to Coke had to be paid extra. At be slightly cheaper, but no better than Tiger"

Cons: "I have nothing but praise."
Pros: "Quality of service was good in the plane"
Cons: "Not many good recent movies / shows on in flight entertainment. Food was okay. But, the quantity was too little. It took a really long time for a second boarding pass check at London airport. Other airlines don't usually ask for a second check in"
Pros: "So much food!! They kept bringing food out the whole flight..The seats were great. It was a very comfortable flight"
Cons: "no complaints whatsoever!"

Cons: "Service is super fast"
Pros: "food was good, and tvs in the seats."
Cons: "wifi didnt work, was the whole reason i took this airline. most international flights are cold it was very hot"
Pros: "Amazing food and drinks, and to top it off we were served a frozen ice cream treat during our flight."
Pros: "I was selected for additional screening at the gate. I have no problem with this at all. From the start I told them I am traveling with my fiancee. They tried to hold me back in a separate area after the screening and I once again told them my fiancee was waiting for me. One staff memeber walked with me half way back to get her and then disappeared. By the time I found her and came back, the staff memeber was no where to be found. Now we had lost are spot in the line and had to go to the back of the line. We spoke to 3 different staff people about what was going on and everyone said, oh the guy over there will help you. But no one did. The staff had No idea how to run a security check or handle paople. There was No working wifi! There was no tvs in the seats, only the old style in the aisle. The staff told me the plan was going to retire at the end of the month. The food was more for animals then for humans! We got updates by txt 10 mins before the staff updated the gate on our flight out from SFO. I have traveled all over the world with a lot of airlines and Never had such a poor service, but what is it to expect. It was United after all!"

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: "We paid extra for more legroom and it was totally worth it."
Cons: "The regular seats were so lacking in leg room that I could not cross my legs, reach the floor to get my glasses when I dropped them, or even get my carry-on out. There is no way to get into the "brace for impact position" with arms over your head and head in your lap! This is really unsafe, not to mention really uncomfortable. The flight was long, so comfort would be nice! Our first flight was regular seats and I was pretty miserable and I am a slender woman 5'6". The extra 3" was great, and we had to pay more on the return trip. The FAA should be investigating seat size and safety on planes."

Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."
Cons: "Both my departing flight and returning flight had broken wifi on it. Very bummed"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"
Pros: "Seat Legroom Comfort Food Service Crew ... amazing!!!"

Cons: "Wasn't Virgin Atlantic, it was delta. We thought we were flying Virgin Atlantic. Dissapointment #1 Interactive TV's were horrible and required assistance to work them. Touch screens weren't responsive. Food was bad."
Pros: "Great food and movie offerings. On time and courteous staff."
Cons: "Cramped chairs- less leg room than Delta. Also, annoying that buying through Kayak left us without a code to be able to check in online, meaning we were left to be assigned seats at the airport."
Cons: "I got in a car accident on the way to the airport for my flight. I went in an ambulance to the ER and had a doctors note that I was safe to fly the next day. When I tried to move my ticket to the next day, with a business class ticket that cost $4000, Turkish airlines wouldn’t do it. They made me pay $3000 to get home . Unbelievable"
Pros: "almost nothing."
Cons: "The same food every time and its not high quality - even in Business class. The business class seats are uncomfortable, they don't recline far enough or provide adequate leg and foot support. The breakfast is not good at all and they seem to fry or provide stale croissants and danishes - they are always so hard and difficult to eat."
Pros: "Everything was more than perfect. Thanks Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "On board internet must be faster."
Pros: "Timeliness. Orderly boarding"
Cons: "Entertainment. Remote didn't work. Touch screen was painful to use."

We got inconsistent and not helpful information from different Turkish representatives. Tight seat configurations. Uncomfortable for a 12+ hour flight."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, friendly flight attendants, food, usb port to charge my phone, and the in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "This was my first flight with Turskis Airlines and my best experience with flying to Europe. The food was excellent; we had two hot delicious meals (best airplane food I ever had). The crew was the best - professional yet friendly. TA airfares are cheaper than other airlines so I could spend one day in Istanbul. That alone is worth it!"
Pros: "Turkish airlines is the worst of the worst."
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable environment. The really take care of you"
Cons: "Boarding Process could be a little streamlined. Guess we are used to the regulated process"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled two days in a row. When i tried calling the 800 number call center, it didn't work. When i called the Turkey phone number, the communication was bad. After 3 days of being stranded i went to the Turkish Airlines office and they were not able to help me with a new flight or a refund so that i can purchase another ticket home."
Cons: "Got lucky to be alive after the flight"
Pros: "Entertainment was good, there was a wide variety of movies, music and TV shows to keep passengers entertained. Seats were comfortable enough."
Cons: "I was really disappointed with Turkish airlines this time. When we first boarded, I informed the flight attendant that I had hurt my back just 20 min ago and if it was possible to change seats (since it was hard for me to move with 2 people sitting next to me) after boarding was complete. She was nice enough by offering me ice, and said that once I hear the announcement ''boarding complete'' I can get up and look for a more comfortable seat. When I did that she asked me to go back to my seat immediately without letting me speak, and not once during the 13hr 30 min flight did she come to check if I needed anything. Food was served twice, a 13hr 30 min flight and food was served twice. It was almost impossible to call flight attendants if you needed water, coffee or was starving..they were always in a hurry and a little rude. Definitely going with Emirates next time, the service there doesn't even compare!"
Cons: "BAD: Leg Room. Seat size and cushion. Food. Air quality/temperature."
Pros: "free large movie selection. good food with some Turkish flair. super friendly staff. power port for electronics. Istanbul is a very busy airport hub. This time, we had no delays, but we have before."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Overall not a good experience"
Pros: "Good in seat entertainment with many choices. In seat charging for devices."
Cons: "Leg room was unbearable for a 777, even for a 5'4" person! Only saw crew for the first 2 hours and last 2 hours of a 13 hour flight."
Pros: "- nice treats around take off (turkish delight and Superman v Batman Chocolate cake) - good in-flight entertainment selection"
Cons: "- service was slow and steward/esses took awhile to respond to service calls; were not that friendly - trash wasn't picked up"
Cons: "Connection was too long to Dubai"
Pros: "It was to hot on the plane , I told them 3 times and still nothing chaged .... I don't think I fill fly with them on the future."
Pros: "Food and entertainment system were amazing. Everything else was at the level of good international airlines. Not at the Singapore Airlines level but far better than US carriers and at the British Airways, Qantas level"
Pros: "For a 13 hr flight on economy class, it was excellent. Cabin crew was very polite. Food was tasty. Boarding was descent. Nice collection of music and movies. Best of all wifi on an overseas flight. Live TV news channels."
Cons: "Seats are kind of small and narrow on economy class but I guess that's in most airlines."
Pros: "Great selection of movies. Really got a kick out of the Batman vs. Superman stuff! :)"
Cons: "I was a bit tight in my seat, and when I went towards the back of the plane, I saw a number of people had a whole row to themselves. It would have been nice if the spacing was better so more of us could be less cramped."
Pros: "The touch screens and little care packages we got once we were on the plane were great. The food was really good, too, but they ran out of one dinner option before it got to half the plane."
Cons: "The entry to the plane in Istanbul was complicated--double checking at the gate for security and then also the boarding entry. The lines were crowded and disorganized and began late. After we were on the runway, we actually turned around and went back to the gate to let one sick passenger off. the flight attendants went up and down the aisles multiple times opening bins and asking people if the luggage was theirs or not before we could leave the gate again. It was really disorganized and bizarre. The flight itself was fine. The flight attendants weren't overly friendly, and they were missing during longer stretches, leaving passengers to find refreshments on their own. Beyond that, things were thankfully uneventful."
Pros: "Great airline but the food is restaurant worthy."
Pros: "Very friendly crew relatively comfortable airplane some of the best food up in the sky"
Cons: "had to board bus from terminal to airplane. too many checkpoints from security lines to the plane. some of those you can understand in a plane heading to the US. BUT some of them are totally useless and unnecessary. alos putting too many stickers on your passport. Turkish have to keep in mind that if every airport has done the same my passport will be covered up with stickers by now."
Cons: "flight had hours of delays barely anyone speaks or understands English.. Lack of help from everywhere from checking in to boarding to take off won't recommend to anyone."
Pros: "Entertainment system was great. I asked for an extra legroom seat when checking in (because I'm 6ft+), and this request was entertained for both me and my wife."
Cons: "The 2nd meal didn't have any protein and didn't taste very good. The seats are generally tight for anyone who is taller than 6 ft."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work on my seat or my entire row of seats."
Pros: "Although a fairly long journey, we were all very comfortable and treated very well by the staff."
Pros: "I liked the flight attendants. They were all VERY pleasant and accessible. They were all service oriented and felt that they honestly wanted to ensure that they flight was as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "Total chaos boarding. It was hoarding cats in a pen. NO organization what so ever. The serving of the food was a nightmare.... the food was served in sections. the hot plate first ... 5 minutes later... the hot bread... then yet another 5 minutes later... the drink. No water to be had. Was in the air for a full 5 hours before they brought the cart around for water/refreshments. Horrible."
Pros: "I thought the crew was very good and more helpful and friendly than the average cabin crew."
Pros: "The crew and food were good"
Cons: "Connection in Istanbul is bad. Lines were long and not orderly. Bad experience overall. Flight out of Istanbul was late. The reading light did not work. The crew was very nice and service was good. Again, luggage did not arrive. This time 2 out of 2 pieces. One piece arrived a day later the second took more than 48 h."
Pros: "Lost luggage"
Cons: "They cancelled my seat because of overbooking but they can not explain why? I was able to change my ticket two days later. Unexperienced staff, such a caos at the thy counters."
Pros: "I liked the coach video screens and entertainment system. Screens are large and easy to use, as is the touch screen interface. Lots to choose from. Good system! FAs very friendly and helpful. Quality staff on board my flight."
Cons: "My IST - SFO leg was VERY long. Considering the length of the flight, nowhere near enough water was handed out. About 3 hours into the journey a single pass was made through the cabin offering bottles of water but that was the only time it happened in a 13 hour flight. FAs were happy to give water - in single doses in a cup when asked but service could be improved. Better service would include 3 passes through the cabin at regular intervals offering full bottles of water and not just a cup."
Cons: "Seats 24a/b were next to exit door. Airplane is pumping out cold air literally right next to your feet. Crew was not willing to change temperature. Was not willing to offer comparable seats somewhere else in the plane despite having space. So, we were cold despite layers of blankets throughout the 13 hours of flight."
Pros: "Awesome access to English movies that made a 13 hour flight from Istanbul to SFO bearable. There was more space than most coach seats and their 2-bags free checking policy meant there were fewer lines in the aisles and more room in the overhead compartments. Being used to US airlines, having two meals and a wide range of free beverages (including fresh-squeezed OJ and wine) was a treat."
Cons: "My only complaint would be the lack of any US TV programs among the many video offerings on the longer flight -- there was no video on the 2-hour connecting flight. The food on both flights was just OK, but it had a smattering of lots of East and West so everyone could find something."
Cons: "I traveled on the same airline from SFO to IST 10 days ago and loved it. However, this flight from IST to SFO was terrible. The crew probably was trying to do their best but it didnt work. - I was feeling sick so i pushed the attendant button 4 times to get someone to come by. - When they did come by and I asked for some tea, they got me a lukewarm tea! Seriously. - The toilets - When I used it mid-way, it was terrible. It needed restocking and actual cleaning the pot since the flush couldn't take away all of the solids i guess. Gross."
Cons: "seats too close for comfort...my knees were cramped when the seat in front of me leaned back. i'm only 5'4" so I really felt for the people taller than me...other than that the flight was wonderful..."
Pros: "Boarding in SFO and Crow in general"
Cons: "Boarding in Egypt and ground service and support in Istanbul Online service needs to meet as least the other Airline services."
Pros: "Good selection of food offered."
Cons: "Both meals served were cold/warm. Rush delivery with poor execution on heating the food. Also suggest Turkish get Ginger Ale on board. This helps some travelers keep calm."
Pros: "I found TA to be great in every detail--schedules kept, cabins well-appointed, food exceptional. Will use them every time I can from now on."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."
Cons: "Crew members in Amsterdam were very rude and disrespectful"
Cons: "The plane is so old..,"
Pros: "economy plus seats were nice, great movie selection, especially international movies"
Cons: "crew was not friendly, i had to ask for water many times, usually water person walk the aisle. food was terrible. other carriers food were better"
Pros: "The bed was comfortable. Entertainment selection and large TV screen was good. The KLM crew is amazing, as usual."
Cons: "Food quality was not so good."
Pros: "No delay and nice staff"
Pros: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."
Pros: "Nice seats. Only seats with a row of 2, which is what I wanted,"
Pros: "Smooth and faster than expected trip. I felt free to get up and walk around on this long flight. Food was good. I sat in seat with extra leg room for the first time and it was worth it"
Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"
Cons: "I ordered Wheel chair for my parents but one of them didn't get it at all. When my parents were checking in for flight they asked the representative about meal selection and she didn't answer their questions properly and because of that my mom didn't get proper Hindu Vegetarian food on flight instead she got Egg omelet which she couldn't eat. She has to eat just fruits. My mother is a diabetic patient and she needs a food every after some time. I never had such a bad experience before with any other airlines."
Cons: "None of our 4 checked bags arrived with us. This was despite ample connection time (2+ hours) in Amsterdam."
Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"
Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."
Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."
Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Pros: "Everything excellent. Comfortable seats in business."
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."
Pros: "Everything is top notch for an airline company."
Cons: "Nothing.... I enjoyed every moment of the flight."
Pros: "The leg room, was surprisingly roomy"
Cons: "The food and that there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"
Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Cons: "No charging ports for electronic devices."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"
Pros: "The staff were professional and friendly The food was very good and plentiful The inflight entertainment has lots of choices The bathrooms remained clean All in stark contrast with BA with who I did the same flight 2 weeks ago and all the above points were very poor"
Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."
Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"
Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliablity."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "The service, entertainment, food, the crew, the aircraft were excellent."
Cons: "They put us in a Transavia plane."
Pros: "Excellent service and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Flight delay roughly an hour"
Cons: "seats on Jet air flight are very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Very slow service. I wanted to by several goods from duty free. But crew served only first 20 rows of aircraft."
Pros: "Newer plane. Dimming windows, upgraded bathroom. Flight crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't announced. Limited in flight movie selection. Food was average. Same dessert for both meals served."
Cons: "Taking off late caused me stress because I had transferring flight within less than two hours in transit originally. So we arrived later about 50 minutes so I had to manage my situation and find my next gate and be on time. And an other thing that I disliked was that I was allowed to have only one baggage which was very unusual for international flight between two countenances. And the crew was not polite enough so she made fun of my Cary-on. In short, I expected more from KLM which is famous for them being "Royal" but not acting as one of them."
Pros: "- entertainment systen was OK (movies), but has no current news - food was good - windows can be darkened progressively"
Cons: "- Schiphol airport (AMS) is small, crowded, noisy; no water fountains; toilets are dirty and insufficient in number; SFO is much better - KLM boarding process was chaotic (not by group or row number), boarding/security personnel (4 old guys) didn't have a clue - 787 is noisy, chairs are uncomfortable (my back still hurts) and very close together, they also recline way too much - food trays not collected promptly - noisy babies on all flights - clearly not enough cabin crew for a full flight - no or wrong info by pilots on timing (crew are always lying anyway) - gate is all around the back at SFO (long taxi to get there) - they inserted people in wheelchairs during deboarding thus holding everybody up."
