Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, leg room"
Cons: "Need to serve better food in economy. There is a little more legroom in economy compared to other airlines, however, the seats are tight. They are not wide enough. Need better movie selection."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and rebooking dealt with poorly"
Pros: "The Q-suite is exceptionally comfortable and the door really does make a difference. I usually have difficulty sleeping but the isolation from aisle traffic and ambient noise reduction was enough to allow some very good sleep. Staff experience was also exceptional - friendly and highly competent, looking to go the extra mile. Food was great and full menu available upon request."
Cons: "I did not find a gap"
Pros: "Attentive and efficient"
Cons: "I truly enjoy this airline! No complaints"
Pros: "Great crew and food. Nice economy class."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful. Entertainment very good."
Cons: "The flight is too long"
Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."
Pros: "Everything was just average to poor."
Cons: "Baggage was not handled properly. Food is just average. Crew looked very tired, they are probably too much overloaded with work and the airline has poor scheduling of shifts for their crews."
Pros: "Food was good and so was the crew, entertainment was better than expected."
Cons: "Obviously the seat could have been roomier but still good."
Pros: "It is so far a cut above the American carriers. There’s no way to compare them, because Qatar Airways is so far superior. The seats are far more comfortable and larger, the amount of legroom is far superior, you have much more personal space, and the craft is cleaner. Flight Attendants are fantastic! They provide excellent personal care, and are there for everything. They are supremely polite and courteous, and bring things in mediately. Very often anticipating your needs. This is what flying used to be like on United and American. But those people have completely forgotten what service is. Qatar is a 5 star airline. United and American, to my view, are 2 star at best."
Pros: "Foods were great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 7 hrs in Manila. Then in Qatar, there's no flight available going to Philadelphia. It will be the next morning. But they did very good in assisting us in everything. From food to accomodation. We'll still fly with Qatar Airways. I know there's a good reason for the delays."
Pros: "Good attention from cabin crew and good food"
Pros: "The food and flight staff were good"
Pros: "Crew members were very accommodating and helpful (Valencial & Hanane). They go the extra mile to make sure that we were enjoying the flight in the best possible ways. This is what makes Qatar Airways stand out and different from the rest."
Pros: "good crew"
Cons: "plane hadn't been cleaned (trash/food garbage in the seat pockets), plane was very hot"
Cons: "Overall excellent"
Pros: "Helpful and friendly crew"
Cons: "Same as kochi to Doha flight"
Pros: "The treatment"
Cons: "It was too late"
Pros: "Doha to hyd was good. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Even after online checkin. Just to drop the bags it took 1 hr. The thin old black lady at the baggage drop off counter was very partial in treating people. She allowed a black male take 27.8 kgs but asked us to adjust our bags when we had 23 kgs. Also if the passenger is allowed to carry a laptop bag, according to her training and theory she only knows 1 shape and does not recognize a back pack which has only the laptop. I travelled several times in Qatar, but never had this kind of experience."
Cons: "Great service. Courteous staff. Professional and well groomed crew unlike some US carriers. Decent beverage and food offerings in biz. Badly outdated IFE system."
Pros: "Stewards were great"
Cons: "No complaints for this leg of the journey. Entertainment options were mediocre as all legs of my journey had the identical offerings and i pretty much watched all of it in my round trip almost 48 hours of total on plane time."
Pros: "the crew as more customer friendly, and it appeared they really take care of customer, not just put some words on paper."
Cons: "i have requested the child meal on the web site and also requested the seat preferences, however when i boarded the flight, i came to know that they have only honored the seat preferences but not the food. on the serving menu, the veg option was available but we informed that the veg is available only if we have requested it on the web site, i had to survive with add-on food but not the real meal. crew were struggling to serve food for us."
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: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to find us vegetarian meals as our booking was incorrect. They had some good movies to watch that made the trip faster"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and one can only eat vegetable curry so many times in a day. At one point I really just wanted dry cereal because rice and curry is not breakfast in my mind"
Pros: "The airline stewardesses were Fabulous! Especially one from Doha to Cape Town. Food was good and more than enough to eat. I was impressed by the scheduled meals and drink offers , very important for a dietetic"
Cons: "No leg room, can't stretch your legs properly so my bad knee was in pain"
Pros: "They make you feel like a person"
Pros: "A comfortable safe flight. Steph was very helpful and nice and kept us updated when there was a delay on the flight. There were no problemsThe food was airline food and I don't really care for it but I don't think there's anything that can be helped about that. :) my face it was processed promptly and my reservation was handled promptly at the information desk ."
Cons: "The food was airline food and I don't really care for it but I don't think there's anything that can be helped about that. :-)"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Out of mango juice and the plane was too old."
Pros: "Qatar is quite possibly the best airline in the world, especially on its long haul flights. It is heads above the other two major Persian Gulf airlines. All the employees with whom I dealt were excellent and customer-oriented. The planes between Doha and London were new, had more space than older planes and had an excellent selection of movies and TV shows. I ordered special meals on all the flights, and I was very satisfied. I have been a fan of Qatar Airways since I flew it to Australia in 2011. It continues to do a superb job, even in Economy."
Pros: "The food on foreign airlines is so much better than on american airlines (they even offer something in economy class on short local flights)."
Cons: "The seat spacing on the 70-minute flisght was a little cramped - it would be even worse for a taller person than I (at 5'10")."
Pros: "Staff courtesy."
Cons: "No WiFi"
Cons: "This was also a good flight it was just a bit more cramped than the Qatar Flight Los Angeles to Doha so I preferred that flight over the Doha to Singapore"
Pros: "Comfortable and easy"
Cons: "Departs in early morning"
Pros: "A350 is a very comfortable plane. More legroom than Emirates. Big difference for long flights."
Cons: "Service could be faster (food, etc). Entertainment system did not work on some of the seats."
Cons: "They cancelled our flight without informing us from Doha to Miami, so they were going to fly us to Doha at 3 a.m., take us to hotel, and then have us fly the next day. This was the third time this airlines cancelled a flight on us for the same trip. The first two times were traveling from Miami to Delhi, we had to change our itinerary because they cancelled the flight, and we had to fly on different dates. This caused a series of hotel changes and cancellations costing us a lot of money. On the flight that we finally got from Doha to JFK, the man sitting next to me SMELLED LIFE THE FUNK OF 40,000 YEARS. It is unbearable. Thirteen hours of pungent body odor that even the flight attendants acknowledged was horrific. It was a miserable experience flying with this airline for what was to be the trip of a lifetime."
Pros: "Better crew members"
Cons: "Seats and food.. This should be the last travel with Qatar airways."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Dont have special food for little ones."
Pros: "entertainment selection is great"
Cons: "GIVE US WIFI! Also on international journeys, they should make coffee and drink rounds more often"
Pros: "A380 FLIGHT! Woo Hoo!"
Pros: "Some touch screen tv didn't work and some old style tv the audio didn't work. Flying 22hours like this can be difficult."
Pros: "Good entertainment system, nice selection of movies. Very tasty vegetarian meals. Nice amount of recline on seats."
Cons: "After selecting seats in advance and reconfirming the day before flight upon check in, on arrival at airport our seats had been reassigned to the absolute worst seats on the airplane. The service was not good, with dirty food trays being left in front of us for over an hour at a time, service request call buttons going unanswered, and no beverage service until long after meals were served. Seats very firm for such a long flight. While meals were very good, snack options were terrible."
Cons: "WiFi was very limited."
Cons: "The transfer from international flights to domestic is difficult. I came to Guangzhou with a joint flight of Turkish airlines and China southern but there was no one at the airport when we landed to inform us how to transfer our luggage to the domestic flights and how to check in. Considering I don’t know Chinese, this was tough."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "I wish they would use newer planes on this long route but other than that everything was excellent!"
Pros: "Plan was hold, crew was not helpful. I requested a wheel chair and never got it. Flight was delayed and no assistance was given to figure out missed connections."

Cons: "Food messed with my stomach."
Cons: "Boarding at Ataturk Istanbul airport was happening randomly. They did not follow the group boarding like in IAD airport."
Pros: "The food and entertainment was good. The crew was very nice."
Pros: "My experience on Turkish Airlines exceeded expectations. Boarding was smooth and the flight was on time. Service was excellent and staff professional. The crew was courteous but the hostesses could try smiling a bit more. Their courtesy was appreciated but it felt very methodical, more of an obligation and not spontaneous. The pilot did a great introduction and gave information about the trip. Also the plane toilets were clean compared to other companies. I expected to see a wider selection of more recent and award winning movies. Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again."
Cons: "I had to buy a Tukish Visa...spend the night in Istanbul.Screwed up my driver,my Mom had to call and cancel my appointments.I had no clothes,of toiletries....just a nightmare"

Pros: "Did a very good job of efficiently, securely dealing with US requirement of no laptops, no tablets allowed on flights from Middle East."
Pros: "Very professional. Also the transfer in Istanbul was very easy."
Cons: "I felt cramped in my seat. the footrest, rather than helping, got in the way of extending my legs."

Pros: "If one puts seats in relaxed position, other travelers complain so why have the option of putting seat in relaxed position"

Pros: "The flight attendants were incredibly kind and attentive"
Cons: "Bathrooms were a mess. Badly need more cleaning throughout flight"
Pros: "Good entertainment options, and they keep you well fed with their snacks."
Cons: "The plane departed 2+ hours late, and offered no free internet so we could tell our families that we would be late. They also didn't apologize or offered vouchers for the delay."
Pros: "Food and beverages, both choices and generosity of portions and quality, excellent. Entertainment made long trip very endurable."
Cons: "Rediculous chaotic check in at JFK. Standing in line an hour for a 40 minute delayed departure with virtually no communication from staff. As I had connection to make, was very unnerving."
Pros: "Airplane and entertainment were nice."
Cons: "Flight left an hour late so we missed our connection."
Pros: "Half of the plane was empty so most passengers were sleeping"
Cons: "customer service at,istanbul airport was terrible no help nobody knows English at international airport. all they have to speak is Turkce all the way from Istanbul to Atlanta they serve Pasta. very rode is this the standard of good airline?"
Pros: "Bathrooms need more attention from the crew because some passengers do not clean after use. I saw whole stack of seat cover papers laying on the floor through out the 13 hours of flight."
Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "the first flight (from Dhaka to Istanbul) was long, but great. full entertainment. the second flight from Istanbul to London had zero entertainment (the flight is obviously international and 4-5 hours long). there should be an easier way to request a vegetarian meal when i buy my ticket through your website. I shouldn't have to go through some convoluted way of contacting the airline to find if there is a veg option."
Pros: "I loved the free tour of Istanbul that Turkish Airlines offers for thsoe who have long layovers there. The flight attendants were constantly walking through the aisles to hand out food, beverages, and other amenities. Very good movie selection. Turkish Airlines is my new favorite airline!"
Pros: "I liked the dates and time, the food and it was over all a good flight"
Pros: "When I find the restroom facility with water all over the floor and walls apparently used by a passenger to do a sponge bath. I notified the flight attendants and they immediately clean up the mess and restore the restroom to usable condition. I was very impressed with their attitude in a trying situation. Very cordial flight crew. The little travel kits were an added bonus. Having sandals on a 13 hour flight was a blessing instead of putting on shoes every time you have to to to the WC."
Cons: "The 45 minute wait on the tarmac before take off. It was quite hot in the cabin with no air circulation. And no information from the cockpit as to when takeoff will be."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class no problem. Flight attendants were wonderful and very attentive. Delicious food. Chair laid out comfortably into a bed. Best long flight I've ever taken"

Pros: "Great service onboard."
Cons: "Attendants did not smile, but were helpful."
Pros: "Food, entertainment, crew"
Cons: "Once in Turkey (Istanbul ) I had to go to a Turkish Airlines customer service kiosk in order to ask some questions about by following flight. One of the ladies in the counter had to be the rudest customer service person I have seen in years. She talked and dealt with people as if they were an incredible annoyance on her life. She will even dismiss you without answering your questions."
Pros: "Crew was great, very friendly"
Cons: "Everything else. Small space, food was not very good, bathrooms were dirty."
Pros: "Everything was great this was the greatest flight I took. I travel a lot. The service was 100 ten % perfect. Thanks to everyone for a great service."
Cons: "I don't think anyone could say they didn't like something about the flight or service."
Cons: "Flight from Houston to Istanbul got delayed; Turkish Airlines representative confirmed that flight will catch up on time and I can reach my connecting flight on time, however changed my ticket for the connecting flight so I would leave Istanbul next day - without informing me about the change.Once I realized changed "date/time" in the ticket (VS what I booked) and complained about it, all Turkish Airline representatives were acting line they don't understand English...this is unacceptable. I ended up spending the night in the Airport."
Pros: "The staff was disorganized The boarding slow and the computer was the workings same as above"
Pros: "The food was great, had a chance to sample some Turkish cuisine. Way better food than any meal you would get from an American-based airline. Entertainment was excellent, great variety of TV shows and movies. The flight attendants were attentive and helpful. The Batman v. Superman theme was a nice touch. Decent leg room in economy class."
Pros: "Almost every thing was good. The plane and seats were good. The movie selections were good. The crews were v good."

Pros: "Total Experience of Flying on this Airline ."
Cons: "No Comment."
Cons: "Cramped seating for premium Econ"
Cons: "Seat wouldn't redline."
Pros: "Great flight attendants and very clean"
Pros: "Counter agent found reservation but not ticket number(?). She was very helpful and nice but Delta reservation system was a total mess. Barely made boarding even though we arrived airport plenty of time before the flight."
Cons: "Counter agent."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly, boarding was fast, on time and overall service was excellent"
Cons: "The plane was small so not a lot of space and didn't offer food other than one beverage"
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Flew business class and my 1st choice on the menu had run out. I ended up not eating."
Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "Great service, polite staff"
Cons: "Incredibly tiny seats, even for my girlfriend, who is 5'6""
Cons: "horrible boarding management in SJC."
Pros: "Just not enough room to accommodate that many people for such a long flight. And felt neglected and grouchy by the end of the trip."
Cons: "Poor hospitality by alaska airline staff, especially by MrPavel at gate H4, 01nov2016, prior boarding around 0730am"
Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"
Cons: "in Amsterdam any DELTA crew helm us, only KLM"
Pros: "plane was farily empty. Who doesn't like that, other than Delta, haha. Nice workers, smooth flight."
Cons: "Delta comfort was very tight. I'm 6 foot tall and my knees were hitting the chair in front of me the whole flight."
Pros: "Timing and Service"
Cons: "Space between seats too reduced"
Pros: "I am 6'6" 300 pounds ... So I regularly book first class for trips over 2 hours in length ... Delta remains my #1 choice for both value and overall experience in first class. The difference between Delta and all other domestic carriers is just overwhelming. United and American/US Air could learn a lot from Delta. I could have flown this trip direct on United, but chose to fly through Atlanta on Delta for less money and a better experience from the baggage check to the gate to the in-flight experience."
Pros: "Dish TV"
Cons: "Pilots were coming from an international flight that was delayed. They then landed at the absolute opposite end of the airport AND had to clear customs. When we boarded they said the pilots had landed. 60 minutes later they arrived, 30 minutes after that we took off. Missed connecting flight in Seattle. Poor communication during delay."
Pros: "I enjoyed not having a layover."
Cons: "I do not like being charged to bring a bag. I feel like a 560 fee should include a bag."
Pros: "I liked the service of the crew members and the Margarita was super strong."
Cons: "The seats are really close together. It made it uncomfortable to sleep."
Pros: "Left on time, got in early, super easy flight. Baggage was quick."
Cons: "My flight from anchorage was delayed over an hour so I miss my connecting flight and had to stay over night in the Seattle airport..."
Pros: "The staff of Dekta were welcoming as well as helpful. The flight was professionally run and I enjoyed it."
Cons: "The auxiliary power went down before we took off. However, the flight captain assured passengers that procedures would be followed to assure our safety. We waited on the plane for 10 minutes and then took off. Thanks to staff for following safety procedures."
Pros: "The crew were excellent. Kept us updated throughout a long delay."
Cons: "We should have reached our destination at 7:40PM. We finally arrived about 9:50pm. We were held at the gate for about two hours while a mechanical issue was solved. The plane was not equipped with WiFi/internet and the entertainment was poor. Expected better from Delta."
Pros: "staff was friendly"
Pros: "This was my shortest flight for the day, just over 2 hours and it was a bigger plane, had monitors in the seat backs, served drinks and snack."
Cons: "I think entertainment should be free. There should be a charge for wifi, because people can survive without their computer/phone for a few hours. But, if you have already put the monitors on the plane, how much extra money per year would airlines lose by offering a free movie...?"
Pros: "the attendant in first class was fantastic."
Cons: "Poor service. Will never fly with Delta again."
Cons: "They didn't land due to fog, making me miss all my other flights. Bags were not put on redirected flight to Beijing. Bags still missing 3 days later. Trip has been put on hold till bags arrive in Jakarta."
Cons: "We finally got toward the runway then had to sit there for about 25 minutes because there was a technical error."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and the gate agent was efficient"
Cons: "We not only left 45 minutes late, but there was no beverage service on the flight."
Pros: "It's nice to be theoretically in zone 2"
Cons: "Boarding is inconsistant. At JFK it was like boarding a plane in China. Everyone congested at the front. One Delta person taking tickets. Two Delta people not helping her. We boarded slowly, partially because people STILL refuse to check bags that are not carry on bags. We left late. Why have zones at all? Why have carrying rules that you don't enforce? Why did we pay $25 a bag if you don't enforce this? Food choices are funny, especially the "tapas". Whoever thinks THOSE are tapas should Google the word tapas. Delta reportedly earned 746 million in the first quarter and you charge for everything and still can't come up with decent food for us to BUY?"
Cons: "Not real happy with getting charged 25 dollars for a bag when I am MVP with Alaska Airlines, was under impression both airlines are together."
Pros: "On time, and great fare"
Pros: "The staff was very nice, seats were comfortable and entertainment was nice."
Cons: "Plane was delayed, causing us to miss our connection, but our connection was also delayed so it worked out. Wifi is also quite pricey."
Pros: "The space on the flight"
Cons: "The connecting flight I had to Seattle had a 30min layover, and was practically gated on the opposite side of the airport in SLC. I had to run in order to make the last-minute boarding. Kind of a cutting it close, but I made it none the less"
Cons: "Movie Application did not work. Did not have a tablet."
Cons: "Flight was extremely delayed due to missing flight attendants"
Cons: "I never got there . They changed my flights"
Cons: "Flight delayed and turbulence."
Cons: "Delayed due to weather that actually apparently wasn't that bad. Sat on the Tarmac for over an hour. When we finally got in the air I asked for water and she said they were running low and she would come back later. She never came back. Had to buy my own hotel room and their "discounted" rate was a room for over a hundred dollars. I had to call the number 6 times because i kept getting disconnected. Then waited on hold for 15 minute before I got anyone."
Pros: "Electricity plug at my seat"
Cons: "Crew was late getting to gate so that delayed boarding"
Cons: "Unable to travel due to Corona restrictions, company would not refund ticket."
Pros: "Business class upgrade"
Cons: "Sitting in window next time"
Cons: "Boarding was ridiculously unorganized and stressful."
Pros: "Great food, great service. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "The video screen at my seat was malfunctioning."
Pros: "I'll probably never fly Basic Economy again....it's worth the extra money."
Cons: "See first comment."
Pros: "The gluten free special meal was more imaginative than others I’ve had. No rice crackers wrapped in saran. Flight attendants very professional."
Cons: "Flight seemed to drag on forever, but there’s not much the airline can do about that. Seats in economy were cramped."
Pros: "The flight was one hour late to leave Seattle and we had to run in Frankfurt airport for 20 minuts to catch the next flight and one luggage did not make it . No more"
Pros: "Thanks for continuing to offer complimentary, hot meals on your international flights! Crew very friendly. Despite being in economy cabin, crew attempted to make it a good experience."
Cons: "Long flight, bathrooms start to look ugly. Incoming plane landed way out on the tarmac, obligating passengers to be all packed into shuttle bus which took a long time to get to terminal."
Pros: "Lots of food with free wine"
Pros: "The crew was nice and polite."
Cons: "TV screens were old. Its response to the touch was iffy. It used to detect the touch point correctly sometimes but not other times. Often it took quiet some time to read and start something of my choice, which was quiet frustrating."
Pros: "So much more comfortable to sit and sleep on such a long flight. Worth every penny!"
Pros: "The good organization and the friendly atmosphere."
Cons: "The bad movies."
Cons: "They left my suitcase in Frankfurt with our car keys."
Pros: "The crew - seemed very amenable and pleasant on this flight. One helped me move to effectively solve the acute posture problem."
Cons: "The seat - window by request, but it was in front of an emergency exit The seat - is jammed in - very tight - could not put it back to relax, and could not relax my left side by the window. My left shoulder and arm and left hip started hurting - couldn't sleep - took 2 days to get rid of the numbness in my arm. I asked to move, and it became obvious that there were many empty seats in the next section behind. I moved, and my comfort improved. Why was I given such a posture killer - especially on such a very long flight with seats to spare?"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. I enjoyed the choice of entertainment. Food and drink were fine."
Cons: "I wish we had more leg room. It was so crowded and I could barely move!"
Pros: "They didn't charge me for my surfboards which was great. It was my only check-on bag and under two meters and that should be free on every airline. Flight attendants were very nice and professional. I gave the food 5 stars based on other airline food, I'm not expecting restaurant quality at 37,000'. Movie selection was adequate for me, although I've seen some complaints in the reviews here."
Cons: "It was a little tricky checking in on my phone. The check email reminder didn't carry the info I needed to check in which required extra searching and copying and pasting. That experience could be streamlined. There was group confusion when being directed to board the plane on two flights."
Cons: "I had to scramble on the last day to ensure I have an alternate flight via British Airways"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. Friendly, efficient and professional. I upgraded my seat for more legroom and it was simply amazing."
Cons: "Nothing to report :)"
Pros: "Food was good and flight was as scheduled with no changes."
Cons: "The Lufthansa folks at the terminal gate while boarding weren't friendly n approachable."

Pros: "Captain was personable and made the flight more enjoyable"
Cons: "Length, which could not be helped"
Pros: "Crew was helpful, slightly relaxed reclining. Baggage delivered on time & without damage."
Cons: "Flight took after 1.5 hours delay , with 30 min incremental delay notifications. After take-off, food service started 2 or 2.5 hours later , they could have expdited it considering that the flight was delayed. Seats ,as I have come to expect from Lufthansa , were cramped laterally ,although i was pleasantly surprised with how much they reclined, given my low expectations. Main dish in the Food service was served hot but were quite minimal in taste/quantity & variety comapred to other inter-continental providers. I was feeling hungry most of the flight and couldnt sleep as well."
Pros: "I witnessed the flight crew defuse a conflict between two male passengers (that had escalated to shouting and throwing each others belongings out of overhead storage) before we left Frankfurt. A male steward showed he could be professionally stern when backing up a female coworker handling the situation and compassionate when he comforted an elderly woman in distress halfway through the intercontinental flight. The entire crew I interacted with in economy class were professional, friendly, welcoming, and helpful."
Cons: "Boarding the entire plane at once was inefficient and caused conflicts over the availability of overhead storage. Obviously this is an airline decision and not a flight specific problem."
Pros: "Crew was very nice - liked flight tracker - personal tv's - food was good. Boarding was good -"
Cons: "Seat in economy are just to small - need to be able to recline a bit more for a 9 to 10+ hour flight. So close together it was hard to eat being in the middle seat. Movies and music need to be updated -"
Pros: "The price, the service, the food."
Cons: "The sardine can."
Cons: "I was very uncomfortable in my seat between two fellow passengers who were large individuals. For a flight duration of over ten hours, it was terrible to repeatedly have to negotiate space with them as they were spilling into my chair space. I also had to insist they not extend their legs into my foot well."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped in economy. A big factor on a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding. Cheerful and helpful crew. Clean cabin. Everything was 100%."
Cons: "Nothing. I was a happy camper from beginning to end."
Pros: "They have some films with subtitles- perfect for Deaf people."
Cons: "Wish all films have subtitles- there are millions of deaf people in the world, you know?"
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew, efficient service, okay food options and good quantity for a lengthy flight. Very happy that a vegetarian option isn't a battle anymore! The entertainment options were very nice, the time passed quickly with the many movie options."
Cons: "No real complaints, maybe the cabin air was a little stuffy, but it's too be expected on a flight of 11.5 hrs. Crew offered water and juice throughout the flight which helped."

Pros: "Crew was great... food was wonderful. The lie-flat seat made my day."
Pros: "Lit hands crew more caring and professional. All good."

Pros: "Loved the business class upgrade"
Cons: "Lack of food choices even in business class"

Pros: "The crew was outstanding, friendly and helpful. The entertainment options were great with lots of current movie and tv listings. the food was pretty good. We received two meals and frequent beverage service. The seats were pretty comfortable, though when the seat in front of you reclined the space was greatly reduced."
Cons: "We had to pay to get seat assignments. it wasn't cheap and then they changed the seats we'd chosen to seats at the very back of the plane. The boarding process is chaotic, at least compared to American practices."
Cons: "food only fair..."
Pros: "First meal was great, second meal was just ok. Seats felt a little cramped for an international flight."
Cons: "Boarding felt like a disorderly free-for-all with people making two competing lines that had to eventually merge. Designating a clear queue would probably not only speed things up, but would improve passenger happiness. You could literally draw a stripe on the floor for each entrance."
Pros: "Everything was great. Good movies, helpful crew, good food for an airline."
Cons: "Entertainment - when compared with other airlines, very few movies available."
Pros: "Decent movie selection and a lot of food for economy class."
Cons: "The some flight attendants were very rude when my son who is 18 months wanted to walk the aisles. They even told me to take my seat when they were sitting themselves to eat, but we were not being noisy or bothering them. They would rather have the child sit in the seat and scream and cry, then be happier walking around mid-flight. Not much sympathy."
Pros: "The whole flight was great. The flight attendants are so nice. Food is good. Free alcohol. Perfect international flight. Would be nice if you could get 2 free checked bags, but that is a small complaint."

Cons: "No complaints about anything."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
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.

Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."

There were plent of seats on this flight that had extended legroom. A bit of a mystery, why Westjet elected to put usin the last seats on the plane?"
