Cons: "On my way from Chicago to Singapore, they had an old plane and the business class was mediocre at best. The seats were uncomfortable. They were stacked side by side and did not have a "personal pod" formation which in my honest opinion is quite a waste of thousands of dollars you paid to travel. Additionally, the entertainment was just okay. There were not too many great options of movies and for the old plane, the screens were really bad."

Cons: "I had heard so many great comments about this airline and overall airlines traveling abroad. Yes the plane looked nice and the flight attendants looked flawless, but I had no luck when it came to the flight attendant that was in charge of my isle. She was not friendly, and gave me a judgmental look when I asked for a refill for red wine. Tickets are very expensive and I'm sure most folks using this airline have made lots of efforts and sacrifice to be able to pay for their trip. Such was my case, as I was on vacation with my sister and had been planning for this trip for a very long time. Seats were very uncomfortable and it was warm inside the plane the whole time. in the end we got to Incheon safely and on time, and I guess that's what matters..."

Pros: "Fabulous crew, good choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Seats are comfy and spacious, much wider than Emirates in the same class (who offer only an extra 1/2 inch width over economy). Amenity kit a quality piece that is both practical and useful."

Pros: "Helpful Qatar Airways passenger assistant at check-in."
Cons: "Security check chaos. Obnoxious security woman. BHX strict single bag, 7kg cabin baggage"

Cons: "The time of flight changed 1:30 hour erlier and we did get noticed we were about to miss the flight it’s so annoying but at the end we catch it"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. And the food choices were good."

Pros: "I actually loved everything about the entire flight experience. Everything was awesome (Minus a 1-hour airport delay that was out of control of the airlines)."
Cons: "Nothing. Seriously. Tasty food, good movie selection, plenty of legroom, pleasant flight attendants, comfortable seats... good stuff. :)"

Pros: "Everyone at Qatar Airlines is amazing. The service and inflight accommodations are great, and they are always looking for how to make your travel more comfortable. I highly recommend!"
Cons: "It would be nice to have socks to put on for when I want to take my shoes off."

Cons: "Out dated inflight entertainment system"

Cons: "Did not know what Vegetarian Jain meal should taste like! Even goats and sheep woud not have liked the taste of this special meal. Fortunately, cabin crew member was kind enough to give me a regular Hindu veggie meal rather than my pre-selected Vegetarian Jain meal (VJML) - DO NOT CHOOSE VJML on Qatar, unless you wanna faint from the horrible food! The tray was dirty! Co-passengers in the row behind me were also complaining The audio lead of my headphone would not go into the outlet in the seat armrest! So I had to use audio from neighboring (empty) seat and sync it with video from screen for my seat. What a pain!"

Pros: "Lost bag"

Cons: "light breakfast and light snacks for an 8-hour flight? come on!"

Pros: "Crew helped with my bags."
Cons: "Lack of film choice"

Pros: "The food was good. The legroom was enjoyable."
Cons: "I checked two bags and had them marked 'fragile', as I had valuables in there that I packed securely. When I retrieved the bags on the carousel, the fragile sticker was mangled, and both items from both bags were broken. Pieces of art I can not replace. Also, it took over 30 minutes upon multiple requests for the attendant to acknowledge my need for assistance."

Pros: "The movie selection was good."
Cons: "-my seat did not recline, which I understand that I was close to the emergency exit but the person in front of me could still put their seat back way farther than they should be able to and I was unable to do simple things like put my glass of water on my tray -I had a vegetarian meal which was literally just rice and ground up brown mush-I have no idea what that much was -I asked twice for new headphones because my was broken but they forgot -When the flight attendant was coming around with water and she looked me to see if I wanted any and I said yes, she just skipped over me. I didn't pay a few hundred dollars extra for this."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Transit time was too close with my connection"

Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"

Cons: "qatar airlines has some old airplanes foods are not good"

Cons: "The flight we took out from Doha to India was a bad experience the boarding was not handled well and the crew in that flight were not attentive."

Pros: "Great flight"

Pros: "What they get right: The planes are comfortable and the flight attendants are attentive and kind. The price is okay, and there are plenty of flights from Doha to Manama."
Cons: "What they get wrong- Taking the Doha to Manama flight is like riding the commuter bus from New Jersey to New York City in the U.S. You get there, but that's about it. The waiting area is too small for the number of flights and quantities of people processing through. Many passengers were sitting on the floor while awaiting their flights. Not classy. The boarding process is tedious, and, inefficient, with people cutting in line, others trying to re-negotiate seating while getting their boarding cards scanned, and others not allowing room for additional passengers on the bus that takes you out to the plane. They get on, and block the doorway, so that they can be the first off when we get to the plane. It seems like no one is interested in making this quick and easy, so we can leave on time. That's the other thing. How can a local airline, named for its country, not leave on time? We were delayed about 20 minutes, waiting on people. Just leave them behind! Stick to schedule!"

Pros: "I love the help given by ground crew in KLIA upon arrival. The crew waiting at the exit gate to make my transit quick and easy. The staff took me right to the flight gate, issue me the boarding past without me spending time to locate the transfer counter.. It was hassle free. Bravo! Please keep it up with this excellent service"
Cons: "The vegetarian food, noodle with bamboo shoot was too salty and plain."

Cons: "The waiting room in Qatar airport was freezing! So many cold people who were not properly attired as you don't expect arctic conditions at 1am!"

Pros: "Very good attentive service"

Pros: "Nothing!!!"
Cons: "The plane was almost an hour late taking off from Doha. No one explained anything about the delay. This made us miss our connecting flight to Detroit. When we reached Boston, no one from Qatar air was available to help us get another flight. They made one announcement about contacting so and so, but no one had any idea who that was. There was no help with the baggage. Thank heavens for Jet Blue staff who went beyond to set us in the right direction and booked us on another flight.. Was very disappointed!!"

Pros: "crew responding to the request, supportive"
Cons: "food was just ok, not excellent. movie selection was not really top notch, just so-so..."

Pros: "The crew we're good"

Pros: "The crew was really good, even the food was nice"
Cons: "I think the economy class seating could be better & even the ticket prices could be reduced a bit"

Pros: "The staff was excellent"
Cons: "The wet bun for a snack was terrible."

Cons: "Emirates chairs couldn't decline recline"

Cons: "Food. And also seats. We r silver class and should have been assigned better seats."

Pros: "www.Web.HR"

Pros: "Great service, good meal and outstanding entertainment channels"
Cons: "No critical comments to be offered"

Pros: "It felt comfortable."

Pros: "Overal very comfortable and good service aboard plane."
Cons: "Sat on plan after boarding for an extended time before takeoff. I think it was a maintenance thing. It happens so no biggie. Table and magazine pocket needed cleaning from prior flights. Made me uneasy from a cleanliness point of view so they took a hit on comfort."

Pros: "Emirates gets credit for reasonable legroom in economy class and excellent entertainment choices."
Cons: "Airbus A380 is a huge airplane. So many passengers creates limitations."

Pros: "Evverything"
Cons: "That the plane can't do 2,000 mph and have us there in 1/4 the time :-)"

Cons: "Crew didn't check properly the needs of other passengers,like blankets they didn't give to other passengers including me"

Pros: "When traveling overseas, I believe Emirates is by far one of the best airlines to travel with. From check-in to arrival the staff is extremely professional, polite and helpful. I will look to travel with Emirates every possibility I get."
Cons: "I think the meals can be simplified a little. Wasn't a big fan of the food, but I rarely eat on the plane so it didn't matter anyway."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Waiting for 4 hours for boarding due to silly mistake of agent for booking my ticket with wrong spelling & keep me on hold for hours & hours. will never recommend such site to others."

Pros: "Short flight, excellent service."

Pros: "Girls were very helpful and there was one Italian jental man was very kind and co-operative. However sits were very uncomfortable. Food was ok. There were very little healthy choices. overall it was good."

Cons: "Crew hospitality-not attentive as usual. We tried to upgrade (by paying and not using miles) and the staff at the check-in said we cannot as the flight was not full. Surprised by the explanation."

Cons: "The food was very poor, the service was not as good as before. For example they didnt provide earplug and sleeping beauty and they served the breakfast too early, so it was not enough time to sleep. After the breakfast there was still plenty of time around 1,5-2 hours. I think with the departure time at 03.00 a.m. the airline try to save one foood just after the departure. The asian noodle what they provided upon request, was not sufficiant neither fit to the rank of the airline."

Pros: "On time Excellent environment"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Our flight got delayed by 14 hrs, pf course we missed the connecting flight. We have spent mor than 24 hours in airport without any details about our connection and multiple hours in the line trying to get an answer. Ridiculous service if something goes wrong. No back up plan"

Pros: "In flight staff were great, very industrious, and very friendly. In-flight entertainment was the best I have come across on an economy seat."
Cons: "My check-in experience was concerning. I had an onward flight to Manila, but no onward flight from there. The airline policy had me not allowed to check in for my flight because of this. I narrowly avoided missing my flight by booking another flight just in time."

Cons: "The crew wasn't as attentive to me as they were to the gentlemen on the plane. Felt a ignored quite a bit."

Pros: "Very organized boarding"

Pros: "Emirates flight and on flight services were Superb!"
Cons: "Bought tickets on Malaysian Airlines quota/allocation but was turned away by Malaysian Airlines counter becausw its operated by Emirates. Im a silver card holder on Oneworld ao I wanted to have less queue by using Silver card privileges at Malaysian Airlines counter but was not accepted. Had to go onlong queue at Emirates in KLIA but it was fast."

Pros: "Overall experience was good"
Cons: "Up grade with new movies. When I was booking the flight I choose my seats. But they at the airport they change the seating and separate the family."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I didn't like the way they were talking to me about the strict rules on luggage weight limit. They asked to pay 30 dollars for one extra kg and even on the carry on bags. The staff who seemed to be a manager in Korea was telling me to leave behind everything as they are only allowing me total of 7kgs to carry on which includes my laptop (3kg already) and a small handbag! They are literally asking you to just carry your laptop, magazine and a toothbrush! Never seen this strict and stinge rules before. And they didn't even check my carry on weight when boarding after...after giving up my gifts to friends which were not worth paying extra 30 dollars! According to their seat allocation people who sat next to me seemed to be a double or triple size of me (No offence to these passengers) and I could not eat my meal properly because I had no room to move my arm. I asked politely to a crew to change my seat but they said it is full and gave me a cup of orange juice! How nice! I will discourage people to spend extra money on Emirates because you might not get the premium service you pay for!!"

Pros: "everything from service, food, to entertainment. Keep up the good work."
Cons: "Seats were a bit small, if I had more room it will be perfect."

Pros: "It's the best I could ask for the price I paid. Flights during weekdays are better than weekend in my opinion."

Pros: "We couldn't get on the flight because of poor service from people at the counter and missed our flight. We had to be put on another flight. One of our bags has gone missing And we are waiting for it"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "I flew Business and it's like first class all the way. Seats are so comfortable-entatinment and a lounge area that feels like a top one With drinks and food-you can almost forget you're on a plane. Helpful. Flight attendants and great food and wine meal selections Fabulous airline I chose for long flights. Incomparable"
Cons: "I loved it all!"

Pros: "AVML quality for BGW - DXB leg was excellent"
Cons: "the hollywood movie selection was quite limited. The seats had very hard and protruding lower back rests which could not be adjusted. The boarding was hardly done according to the seating zones."

Pros: "Lady “Setora” at the check-in was amazing. Very nice, kind and helpful person."
Cons: "Food service .. we where very hungry and thirsty during the flight. They barely give you some snacks ."

Pros: "We missed the connection because the Istanbul airport is a silent airport and no announcement were made for boarding."
Cons: "Announcement from crew or reach out to people in front of gate would help. Also, the staff at Istanbu airport is so rude and have no respect for customers."

Pros: "The seats were more comfortable that most big companies. The food was tasty and good quality."

Pros: "Every thing amazing"
Cons: "This trip really excellent Thank you Turkish Airlines"

Cons: "Boarding took longer time Than it should."

Pros: "Liked? Nothing. I came up with a new slogan for them based on my experience. "Turkish Airlines: Shoulda flown Lufthansa""
Cons: "Didnt like? Everything. Ataturk is filthy and literally reeks. Gate crews, ticket counter personnel, flight crews are pretty rude and simply refuse to answer direct questions if they dont want to. Seem genuinely displeased if they have to bother speaking any language but their own to communicate with international passengers. Customer Service i believe is merely a joke to the entire company. If i was a religious person i would pray no one ever has to use their feedback system or try to communicate with their customer service group by phone. Thats what i get for being American i guess, just higher hygiene standards and expectations on service for the price paid."

Cons: "Entertainment device was broken, and there was no crew passing by (without food or drinks) to ask him/her about it."

Pros: "The food was great for airline food."
Cons: "I didn’t get upgraded to 1st class. ☺️"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "I love the food and the movies"

Pros: "Sweet crew members"

Cons: "Flight delayed more then an hour without anyone knowing anything about it."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Unconfoetable seat for business class. No priority for boarding in business clas. Old plane."

Pros: "The food was nice. The onboard crew was kind."
Cons: "Our first flight was delayed (due to the air graft arriving late), causing us to miss this flight. The Turkish Airline staff informed us that we would have to wait 24 hours, purchase a hotel at our own expense, and acquire a Turkish visa, also at our own expense. When my husband asked to speak to a manager, it took 45 minutes before a staff member offered us another flight that arrived only a few hours later. All other staff members were on their personal cell phones and would not answer our questions. By the time our boarding passes we’re printed (an hour later)we had to run to our gate in order to make our flight. This left us no time to contact our driver who was picking us up and let him know when our next flight was arriving. We’re extremely disappointed in the customer service and appalled at the lack of professionalism."

Pros: "The international pods were wonderful. Lots of space and could choose from a ton of movies. the bathroom was oversized with plenty of space. And the Bentley travel packs are a very nice touch. The highlight of the trip though is the Turskish Lounge in Istanbul. It has several grand pianos, tons of iMac stations, a freaking golf simulator, and different food stations. Thai, Turkish cuisine a salad bar. It it the best lounge I have experienced 10 fold. It’s the size of a mall."
Cons: "One negative was the beverage service. Iberia and Korean air are much more attentive before and upon take off. Beverage carts come around quite often. Turkish, not so much. Also food was just okay. Feel like other airlines do better in business class"

Cons: "Istanbul Airport: Overcrowding at Arrival / Transit Terminal Way finding-poor signage for transit passengers"

Cons: "No no WiFi. Boarding time was late. Took over two hours. Management staff in the office was inconsiderate and rude."

Cons: "This’s the worse airlines that I ever use in my life, in my way back to Boston I get to the airport 2 and half hours before my flight, it was so crowded outside the door, so I didn’t get to check in till like an hour and 10 minutes, Guess what! They didn’t let me in because they close the gate they said?? They have me payed for another thicket to I take the next flight They are so weird, even when you called the customers service they will do nothing for you, like they don’t live in our planet!! Trust me stay away from this turkish airlines"

Cons: "the most stupid customer service representatives I've seen in both call center and point of sale"

Pros: "In flight entertainment is great! Good selection of movies, nice screens."
Cons: "No vents at seats on Airbus 300, AC was set at high temp so I was frequently way to warm to be comfortable. This is on both our main flight to Istanbul and our short transfer to Athens. Drink service did not start until 2 1/2 hours into flight. You get what you pay for I suppose. Still 10.5 on a hot plane!!! I usually need a jacket. Food was ...awful."

Pros: "Good service, nice plane, comfortable"
Cons: "Took forever to clear out trays after meal. Istanbul airport was not nice, bathrooms wee disgusting and little to no air conditioning in airport"

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Was late"

Pros: "Short flight-everything fine. Great plane."
Cons: "Having to pay for internet if you want to use it. The way Israelis queue at the airport, leaving no room between you and them...too much pressure. Strange 'breakfast"."

Pros: "My above score should be 5 stars in all categories. They were running a special price on business class upgrades. It was fabulous: food great, service attentive, and seat that totally reclined to bed. I slept over 8 hours."
Cons: "I could not change the stars above."

Pros: "We liked being in Exit row and the food and service"
Cons: "On way over BOS-->IST the seats were the closest together I have ever had. Exit row video screen support arm did not hold in place"

Pros: "Enjoyed the long flight with warm hospitality"

Pros: "There is nothing bad that I can say about the trip. From the hot towels to refresh yourself to the friendly crew to the food. The entertainment choices were good and easy to use. I would defiantly fly with them again."

Pros: "The crew was great. Flight normal, food and drinks good."
Cons: "Boarding took a little longer and was delayed without them giving us a reason for it."

Pros: "Everything was great. Seats were comfortable, the Entertainement was great and the food was very good. Plus, sat next to great people."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."

Pros: "Besides the birth of my daughter, this trip to Italy through Istanbul was the greatest THING that I've experienced, EVER! My flight with Turkish Airlines was a HUGE part of that odyssey!"
Cons: "Because of my delayed flight from Atlanta, I missed my connecting flight from Turkey to Rome! So, in the future (yes I plan on flying through Turkish Airlines exclusively for international travel), I will book my flightts with a larger "gap" between flights! Otherwise....Turkish Airlines is PERFECTO!"

Cons: "They had to reset the entertainment system multiple times"

Pros: "Very nice service"

Pros: "The staff was courteous and helpful"
Cons: "The air temperature was warm and the food was not good. The choices were not available. I just ate bread and butter."

Pros: "Movie selections. Larger displays. Comfortable seats. FOOTREST."
Cons: "When going from US to India, food was excellent. But when traveling from India to US, the food was not good at all."

Cons: "the delay in the departure"

Pros: "The crew and Rome team were great. Very accomadating"
Cons: "From Europe there are many parole headed to Asia who will overpack. I waited an extra 25 minutes in line behind a man who was over weight on luggage and refused to pay. The attendant did well but the security had to be called because of the situation. I would like to say this is unusual but I believe it is actually prett common."

Pros: "After checking in in Manila, they told us there is no more seats for us and we're not able to board the plane that we booked few months in advance! Wtf! We had to board next plane the next day, 24hours latet! One day of our vacation lost. Going back was no better since the plane from Manila had slight delay and we missed our connecting flight to Ljubljana for just few minutes. Disappointment again! We got home 15 hours later than we should have. Don't think we will fly with Turkish airlines ever again."
Cons: "After checking in in Manila, they told us there is no more seats for us and we're not able to board the plane that we booked few months in advance! Wtf!

We got home 15 hours later than we should have. Don't think we will fly with Turkish airlines ever again."

Pros: "Liked the food and service"

Pros: "Choice of in-flight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The food was good, the drinks were great, the stewardesses were professional and helpful and the entertainment system was really good, lots of movies. We got there safe and on time...what more do you need? Oh, and the price for my route was amazing; the next airline was $1000 more and the one after that $2000 more."

Pros: "There was a lot to choose entertainment wise."
Cons: "We had a child behind us who would not stop screaming and playing with the tray table. One of the crew members gave me a hard time for having my purse out for 1 minute while I was taking my prenatal vitamin even though we were sitting on the runway for over an hour at this point and the man in front of me had his chair fully reclined so I wasn't able to get to it under my seat.. Even though as she said, we were about to take off, but she didn't say anything to the man in front of me. This was my second time flying with them and the first experience was much better."

Pros: "The wheelchair crew took my old mother of 70yr old njoh rose enjoh all the way to connect Zurich flight when she highlighted from Chicago O'hare flight to Istanbul. I give kudos to the wheelchair team at A300 Istanbul international airport atuku"

Pros: "Food was excellent. And I love the care packages!"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "I did not like the kind of airplain it is not like the plain it gose to uorp or usa. Please try to imrove and bring good airplain. I flyed from dammam and bahrain and the ace of the plain for differnte time it was not good."

Pros: "The crew were very polite, professional, and accomodating. The food was tasty even for airplane food. I was pleasantly surprised! There were tons of entertainement options to help pass the time."

Pros: "I was able 3 soccer games live during the flight. Food was also very good."

Pros: "Helpful cabin crews"
Cons: "Interval between servings of meal is too long"

Pros: "Loved the food!"
Cons: "Although I had a book and good seat-mate, the movie screens stopped working after a few minutes for about 80% of us on the flight. That made for a very long 11 hr flight. There was no apology made to those of us with broken screens. and for boarding, the Airport screens when from no gate to "GO TO GATE" and we all rushed there, some of us 2 hrs early. They put us through security where we were stuck with no available restrooms for nearly 2 hrs before our flight. There was no reason for the rush, and there really should have been bathrooms for us."

Cons: "Delayed a couple hours."

Cons: "Baggage handlers poor. One of my bags was dented and the other had a buckle broken."

Cons: "Friendlier crews"

Pros: "The crews were pretty great!"
Cons: "The regulating of the temperature."

Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"

Pros: "Great airline"

Cons: "1. In Flight Entertainment 2. Controlled In Flight Temperature"

Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"

Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful (our flight was 2h late so they put us on the one before in business class for us not to miss our connection)"
Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."

Pros: "quick/efficient boarding - good staff - good food - easy flight !"
Cons: "the connecting times for klm seem to be very close - if your running late to start - you may not make your next one -"

Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."
Cons: "Well, for me everything was on point. Those who have never travelled with KLM, I would encourage them to do so and I’m sure they will not regret."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Security check at gate; No priority"

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."

Pros: "Boarding agent extra effort to improve my seating!"
Cons: "Food amount less than expected."

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

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."

Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."

Pros: "Everything is top notch for an airline company."
Cons: "Nothing.... I enjoyed every moment of the flight."

Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."

Pros: "Cabin crew were very professional."
Cons: "Aircraft returned to gate due to fault and was delayed for 45 min."

Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"

Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."

Pros: "Good information and helpfil boarding."
Cons: "Has to wait in confined area fir nearly 2 hrs before boarding. No restroom or refreshments within that area."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk. No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."

Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Warm plane with happy staff."
Cons: "Maybe a second sandwich option for food, not everyone likes cheese."

Pros: "Very friendly crew"

Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."

Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"

Pros: "Airlines issue"
Cons: "Profiling certain customers"

Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."

Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"

Cons: "I don’t like the limited choice of drinks on these short KLM flights."

Pros: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"

Pros: "Entertainment was good, and crew was very nice and accommodating. Flight was very comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "The food was okay, not that great."

Pros: "Easy boarding, plenty of room"

Pros: "Professional, welcoming and very friendly crew, well-maintained aircraft, comfortable seat and good food. Keep up the good work, KLM."
Cons: "Not much to comment on here."

Pros: "The crew were pleasant"

Pros: "They were awesome."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."

Pros: "Atmosphere, crew were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "Seats were a little too narrow, and quite uncomfortable when a broad shouldered person is sitting next to you"

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: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"

Pros: "Overall very nice flight, even comes with free drink and snack"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth and hassle free, crew were friendly and helpful, food and drinks were very good, entertainment system is awesome and up to date with latest contents, good flight overall"
Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"

Cons: "Stranded for 48 hours in Africa. Missed 3 flights due to complete incompetence, truly a horrible experience."

Pros: "Average service and food quality"
Cons: "Inside the business class cabin Boeing 777 only one toilet facility available. People is queuing."

Pros: "Flights left on time, arrived ahead of time. Seats comfortable. Baggage arrived quickly. No charge for wine/beer, although I do not imbibe when flying long distance. Food ok for airline food."
Cons: "Unable to pick seats in advance,, were assigned seats that did not recline for 11 hour flight. One bathroom not functioning. Very limited movie choices for inflight entertainment. Seat belts much shorter than other airlines, so very confining, unable to loosen to relax in any position other than sitting straight in seat. In Rome had to check in & go through security at Terminal 5 then get bussed to Terminal 3. Only airport where we had to take out all electronics, including converter plugs, headphones, etc, place in a flimsy clear plastic bag ( that broke ) to go through security. Line to check bags pretty slow for number of passengers. Glad we had plenty of time."
