Lahore to Doha was great but Doha to JFK using American Airlines was horrendous
Airlines lost all my bags and is not being helpful at all in tracing them. Value of baggage is over $25,000. I expect a full refund and expect to be compensated for the loss.
Very lethargic, lazy, rude process to check-in and board the plane. The staff is not well trained or has no care for customer service or any decency at all. First time flying Qatar airways after hearing so many good things about the airline, however the experience was awful!
Movie choices are very limited, emirates choices were lot better
The staff lied to me all day long. No one informed me that my flight times had changed. I’m still sleeping on the ground in the Middle East. The worst experience I have ever had flying. With this level of incompetence and lack of compassion I can’t imagine how the airline business will survivor. This experience has encouraged me to stop traveling. May god have mercy on you and your customers. Not sure I can handle to be lied to my face anymore . Sleeping on the floor in the middle East with no hope of getting home
Seats were old and lanky. Food was bad, we got sick.
Boarding in Lahore is slow
Inaccurate flight time, need to improve customer service. It’s better for them to spend money on hiring professional staff instead of spending money on expensive ads.

Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Everything fine"
Cons: "On O-Hare Airport, Qatar Air Line's staff is very rod, I never recommend to anyone. Now if anyone ask from me then i refuse to buy Qatar Aiway ticket then they buy Emirate or other air line tickets"

Cons: "Not a vegan option for dinner. But the veg option was ok just some stuff I could eat."
Pros: "Professional flight attendants."
Cons: "Inconsistency in packing policies. My sister And I each had a curtain to bring back. I was told that it had to be boxed and wrapped and she wasn’t. Also there were issues with baggage claim at IAD. I took about 45 minutes for the bags to come out."
Pros: "We flew business class from Dubai to D.C., and the VERY long trip was made so much more endurable with all the amenities offered. For example: - fully reclining seats with mattresses that enable sleep - attentive, thoughtful service - a lounge in which to get a drink or snacks, relax, talk with people - good food and drink - a personal bar at your seat with water and soft drinks We've also flown Emirates in tourist class, and it, too, is far superior to most other airlines. There's more seat room, more leg room, good service, clean bathrooms, and decent food and drink."
Cons: "no negatives"
Pros: "Smooth flight; Staff helpful and professional Got to tour Dubai with.Arabian Adventures who partner with Emirates."
Cons: "Flight too long..."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and patient inspite of the flight being full."
Cons: "The boarding at DBX was chaotic. It was disorganized and not executed properly - boarding was not done by priority or by zone in the begininng. Unaccompanied minors were boarded at the end, they should have been boarded first and their cabin baggage take care of first. The quality of food is average ... it used to be much better. No alcohol was served in the flight; was not provided even after requesting one; didn't bother to ask again. The choice of movies were limited"
Pros: "Comfortable seats with pillows, blanket and good foods"
Cons: "The thing which was not good was the service. I would say that service should be done fairly not to see the people background so I asked for something but the crew did bring that. I would suggest to work on this portion. Thanks"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Great customer service"
Pros: "Impressive in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The pay to use Wi-Fi was very slow, not worth using."
Cons: "Food was the worst, service extremely poor"
Pros: "Just a fantastic crew, great airplane the Air Bus much more comfortable than the 777 .."
Pros: "Emirates was top in service, organization, personnel. Planes were clean, staff attentive and personable and wanting to help. Been a long time since service this good and on such long flights. Cabin personnel of multiple nationalities and languages only added to the flight. They even returned my phone mistakenly left on board. Would recommend them to all."
Cons: "Entertainment system on smaller planes not as responsive as newer models. They need to improve web info to share layover process for hotel vouchers and visa."
Pros: "Long flight but comfortable. I will fly emirates again."
Cons: "In some instances their was a shortage of food option. Although the menu said you could have a choice but some of the choices were exhausted by the time crew served it to the half of the travellers and the rest have to eat whatever was leftover. I think Emirates should stock a bit more of the food especially on a plane like Airbus 380. Its a huge aircraft and passengers sting at the vey end had to wait almost 45 min to 1 hr to get their food and that too was whatever leftover. They should make efforts to server all the passengers within a short amount to time rather than keep them waiting for so long. Most of the time more than half of the passengers had already eaten while those sitting in the back were still waiting for their food. Its not cabin crew's inefficiency but rather a policy problem that needs to be addressed."
Cons: "They missed me for breakfast despite my being awake and trying to get their attention. Then they ran out of one of the choices for both dinner and breakfast. This despite the plane being less than capacity. Also there were so many empty seats in the back but I noticed that some people were still being packed in like the flight was full. Emirates should do a better job of assigning seats to make as many people comfortable as possible."
Pros: "Smooth ride, decent food, good entertainment."
Cons: "Long periods without in cabin service, people had to repeatedly ask for water or get up to get water. Boarding Gates were totally secluded from the shops and restaurants of Dubai airport."
Pros: "Nice wide seats"
Cons: "some of the flight attendants were nice and others were openly irritated by the passengers"
Pros: "Great crew, service, food and entertainment."
Cons: "Hard landing"
Cons: "The online site didn't let us allocate seats even before 48 hours of schedule flight timings. Complimentary seats were allocated badly. Even when contacted with airline staff they didn't pass on the right information. We found on airport counter that exists seats opened before opening the airline counter at the airports whereas we are told that it would be allocated at the airport counter only. Misleaded at Dubai by airline staff that airport counter would open 3 hours before flight departure whereas we found and told at counter it was opened 48 hours before flight departure. Faced lots of inconvenience in allocation of complimentary seats. I speak with other co-passengers in the flight and found single complimentary aisle seats were allocared to passengers. They same opportunity was not extend to others having more than 1 seats in the flight."
Pros: "Good Flight."
Cons: "They changed the seats without asking."
Pros: "Overall service and special attention to kids"
Cons: "Inadequate washrooms"
Cons: "They changed our seats to 46F 58F and 88B. We already get boarding pass for connecting flight but they did changed them because of flight delayed from Bangkok. It was unfair. They should hold reserved seats for us since they knew that the first flight would arrive on time."
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment is very good."
Cons: "For in-flight service call to flight attendant, it took 30 mins for response, and in the meantime two attendants walked by and waved me off. The next time I asked an attendant for water, he said sure he would get it, but he never showed up. Their water & juice service is not adequate for long-haul flights. Dubai has poor air quality, which might be bothersome for a long layover."
Pros: "Entertainment system was good"
Cons: "On an 18 hour flight I was offered 1/3 of a cup of water or liquid about 3-4 times. They even rationed ice cubes. I had to ring the assistance bell any every 1-2 hours in order to stay hydrated the meals Consisted of a reheated TV dinner and 5 plastic wrapped versions of bread or processeed foods (bread sticks, cracked, cheese stick) normal you just overlook this stuff but when it's 18 hour flight you need actual food and water or else you'll risk dehydration."
Pros: "Always my number one airline."
Cons: "There was a long bus journey at the airport in Dubai for a flight from Dubai to Lahore. All passengers including myself were very surprised. When the bus stopped neat the air craft for boading, ground staff were seen collecing heavy hand carry luggage from the passengers for putting them in a separate compartment for taking as a cargo, which caused another delay in boading. Old air craft on this route should be replanced. Before boading from Dubai to Lahore, I checked my flight status several times on flight information screen but my flight was not shown on it. Later, I checked on hand touch screen and came to know that gate was B2."
Pros: "Emirates is our usual pick for flying and this time also it was no exception. The crew were friendly, but still couldn't arrange preferred seating because it was during the holiday season. I know this is the section for good comments, but I am very disappointed about the demeanor and the service provided this time."
Cons: "I have called in advance and selected the seats for both inbound and outbound flights. Also, confirmed a wheelchair access. To my surprise, none of them were met according to the commitment. The seats were not the ones that were asked for. I mentioned that there was a medical condition with the leg and my mom would have to get up and move during the flight, but still they allocated seats which are extremely inconvenient to both us and the fellow passengers. We expect better from Emirates!!! I hope they can improve this in the future!"
Pros: "check-in process was efficient"
Cons: "food should be better quality"
Pros: "Liked the entertainment."
Cons: "Some of the crew members were rough. Bashing the passengers and missing the courteous approach. No snacks available in the kitchen between meals on the long 14 hours flight segment."
Pros: "The flight staff was great! Overall service was great."
Cons: "Ahmedabad and Dubai do not have good line control all passengers gather in the front. Washington Dulles has lanes for zones that is orderly."
Pros: "Nice service"
Pros: "The courteous and friendly on-board service, spacious seating and clean men's rooms were the best part of the journey. The smiling stewardess were outstanding in creating a happy environment. I will consider Emirates for my future travels."
Cons: "Coffee was ok but could be better."
Pros: "Foods and electronic entertainment"
Cons: "The male flight attendant accidently hit my head without apologize while I was bending down to tight my shoes."
Pros: "Kids meals, activity packs, kids headphones, travel backpacks/blankets, all made a great travel experience for the kids (2 and 4 years old). Entertainment system was top notch!"
Pros: "Crew are awesome, helpful"
Cons: "Emirates pizza is not good."
Cons: "We had a long layover in Dubai and decided to go out to explore the city. When we went to go back with the same carry ons that we had been using our entire trip (with three different flights with them), They made us check in our hand luggage because it was over 7kg. When we went to talk to the person at the gate about it, he was very condescending and rude and not helpful at all. They were also not nice on the plane. Never flying again."
Cons: "flight got delayed 17 hours"
Pros: "Great service during flight. It did not feel like it was over 14 hours."
Cons: "Boarding was a problem because there was computer system error. Some folks could board while others couldn't. Staff should have been more vocal in explaining the issue and should have organized the customers better while we waited to board the plane."
Pros: "Service of the cabin crew was great considering how crowded and full the flight was."
Cons: "The luggage distribution at Dulles was a nightmare. Took us 30 mins to find out luggage. Was very disappointing"
I found the crew to be particularly cold and unwelcoming. I had pre-ordered a meal that wasn’t registered. The flight was also delayed. I reached DC by 9:30 pm instead of 7pm
My bags and my kids bag didn’t arrive until the next day, because of that We had to stay in erbil over night rent a hotel until we got our bags next day. They need to do better job on handling bags
seating arrangements in business class could be improved. food was the best with best service
Pros: "The crew was good and the seat allocation and comfort was excellent."
Cons: "Food was below average. This needs to be improved otherwise it is not worth it."
Pros: "No sops followed"
Cons: "Food is really bad and they never even bother checking with any one same burger which is cold dry"
Cons: "Food was very poor. They gave us same food every time in all flights. Sandwich was not good. There was no tea, coffee or cold drink. Not even fruit or any chocolates. Food made all of us very upset."
Pros: "Worst customer service ever no one ever answer the call also no one ever answer call from vayama DO NOT BUY FROM VAYAMA"
Cons: "Honestly never buy a ticket from a vayama or kayak worst companies to buy ticket from I wanted to extended my ticket and they were charging me $1200 for extending my ticket from Lahore to New York ... instead I just missed my flight and got new ticket for $500"
Pros: "My sleep"
Cons: "Them good"
Cons: "WHEN i ARRIVED AT AIRPORT ON JUNE 3,2019 TRUKISH STAFF TOLD ME YOUR FLIGHT IS NOT CONFIRMED BUT MY FLIGHT WAS CONFIRMED.I AM VERY UPSET BECAUSE I AM DISABLED AND LOW VISION.I THINK THIS IS TOATLY WRONG.20 MAY I WAS SICK TRUKISH AIRLINES CANCELED MY FLIGHT BECAUST I WAS SICK."

Pros: "The crew is friendly, efficient check in and boarding. Food is pretty good."
Cons: "Turkish Air keeps their planes unbearably hot. I’ve complained before and they always say it’s “Normal” for the industry. I fly over 1000,000 a year and I’m telling you it’s not. Also, I bought an “Extra” room seat and the seat is still ridiculously small for anyone over 6 feet."
Pros: "crew on the aircraft was polite and with service attitude ."
Cons: "the flight was almost 2 h late without any explanation from the ground crew whats is going on , why is the aircraft late and what would be with the connection flight in Istanbul. while arrived at Istanbul it was total mass : representative of turkish airlines was waiting and focused on a group from Korea or china , helped them and barely answered other passengers who didnt know what is the status of their connection flight , which was not shown on the screen ( to tel aviv for example ). then it turned out that my flight took off 15 min before and i was approached to turkish desk to get voucher for poor meal at 2.30 am in the morning and a new ticket . that was poor compensation for 2 h delay in BUD and delay to substitute flight that took off on 7:45 am , almost 6 h later in istanbul . i was forced to run at the airport like a mad instead of having a rep of the co , explaining the passengers where to go and get their new flight ticket and not run hundred of meters with no address in the terminal area . that experience was so bad i havent been through for 13 years . i arrived TA after 14.5 h of trip for a flight who to take 4 h net including istanbul - TA ."
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Lack of drinks offerdd"
Cons: "Boarding is poorly done at Lahore. Business class passengers should have a separate line. They should have better announcement system for boarding. Boarding becomes chaos when agents aren’t able to properly board the passengers."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Increase entertainment options but it was still great just need more latest music"
Pros: "On time, courteous, professional. The seats in economy were comfortable and there was good amount of leg space."

Pros: "I was so impressed by every staff of Turkish Airlines.. I was very young when TWA. Was an elite airlines, with the flight attendants dress perfect.. it made me feel like I was flying first class...with this being my first time using Turkish airlines I actually will use them over the American Airlines; just because the way I was treated and how quickly someone was willing to assist anyone.... I say you are the best!"
Cons: "The service on Turkish airlines was not friendly or helpful. The food was not quality, or food tasting. The entertainment didn't include a lot of movies at all. One of the flights did even give headphones. The staff wasn't rude and not helpful, and didn't make the flight comfortable. I had high hopes flying with Turkish Airlines for the first time, but I was thoroughly disappointed with everything."
Pros: "More leg room at my seat and crew was great"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very acccomodating. The movie choices were great, which is very important while on a 12 hour flight. They handed everyone a warm, wet wash cloth before dinner was passed. Everyone also received a package that included a pair of slippers, lip balm, tooth brush and tooth paste. We hadn't received anything like this on any of our other flights. These were small jesters that make you feel great!"
Pros: "Entertainment System, Food"
Cons: "Leg Space, Airplane Space, Staff, 1 Hour Delay for no reason"
Cons: "In Istanbul, wheel chair facility was not provided. Wheel chair facility was there with itinerary."

Pros: "Every thing was great needed ice water was all thanks"

Pros: "Every thing, the etertainment on the over the Atlantic is exceptional great with many good and new movies. The flight map is very informative. The food very good and the free offer of drinks and sandwiches is great service."
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: "Nothing important"
Pros: "Flight delayed so was my luggage for more than a week."
Pros: "Staff was good"
Cons: "Delayed baggage on first flight for 1 day Delay in next flight and missed the connection"
Cons: "Took 4 hours to get to hotel in Istanbul with my old father, as no one helped or guided. Trying to get money back for the visa but no luck yet."
Pros: "My flight was from Pakistan to new York. Pak to Istanbul was the worst experience. The bassinet seat was on my legs and my daughter was laying inclined. They increase the number of seat which impact uncomfortable leg stretch. But same airline will offer the wonderful plane from Istanbul to new York JFK. You know why???????? Because it's USA :D"
Cons: "Provide same planes and flight comfort for third world countries like pak or india etc. Human being also live there."
Pros: "new aircrafts, easy boarding ontime departure and arrival"
Cons: "Staff needs to be more friendly, food needs to be better in quality (ie.Etihad food is amazing). knowing that the flights are going to INDIA & PAKISTAN they should add some indian Pakistani channels"
Pros: "The fact it took me where I wanted to go"
Cons: "Food sucked barely ateable, entertainemnt was such an old school. There were hardly any new movies plus they had one two international movies n the rest was from 90s."
Cons: "Just as bad as it was from Rome to Istanbul"
Long delay at LAX Seat had no armrest Food poor Short staffed so service on board limited. Very disappointed but at least our luggage arrived quickly as I had another flight to catch
We can't accept the plane is late twice.
Virgin cancelled my flight on July 2nd, two hours after I booked it and never let me know. I discovered this when I attempted to check in online. By that time, it was too late to rebook on any airline and I missed an important training event and conference.
The quality of the food was terrible and below a normal standard, the entertainment screen kept breaking down, had to keep reminding the staff several times to fix it. The toilets were dirty, the seats were very uncomfortable, I think this is one of the worst flights I have been on and really shocked how Delta is associated with Virgin Airlines, who are of such high standard and a much better flying experience.
Crew could be more attentive
Crew was officious, but understandably so because of the number of people on board the flight.
The staff at the gate were really nice people. The boarding was fine, the seats didn’t stay reclined at all. Even when we reclined the seat it kept coming back. Highly uncomfortable. The worst part of the flight was the food! I have not had such horrible food ever on any flight. Please do something about it. Thanks
Positives: The extra seat room in premium class was very nice and comfortable. The cabin staff were excellent, very helpful and pleasant. Negatives: On the downside, my wife and I sat apart. Also, when we tried to change our seats so that we could sit together, the faulty Virgin website kept taking me to meals rather than to seating. Finally, when we tried phoning, we were told that the waiting time to speak to someone was 3 hours!
Liked traveling with Virgin on the past. This time checking was an issue, meals sucked, we were missed when meals were served. Not a great experience. Will travel in two weeks to the UK but will fly with another carrier
Pros: "I travelled on economy delight, flight was fully packed, yet it felt spacious and comfortable. Lightning was great. Food was yummy! And pilots gave us updates on air travel, and if there were any delays etc."
Cons: "Nothing. Had a great trip!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The screen"
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Food was good."
Cons: "Information on when we can check in on upcoming flights. Other airlines we have booked for flights will email us 24 hours prior to departure. Virgin Atlantic did not. I had to call and I was directed to their web site and was able to check in on line. Thanks"
Cons: "The service on Virgin Australia is quite poor. They are barely around. The seats are also only mediocre"
Pros: "Although there were delays they kept us informed on a regular basis as to what to expect and seemed genuinely apologetic for any inconveniences. Boarding and deplaning were smooth and efficient. I really appreciated that there was no charge for checking a bag. I am certain that contributes to the ease of everyone getting on and off the plane. Our bags arrived at baggage claim about the same time we got there. I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "Amazing and helpful crew. Great seat."
Pros: "The crew were really nice and seemed to genuinely care about the passengers, were approachable and were very happy to chat with passengers and help them out."
Cons: "The food options always seem to run out by the back of the plane and this time didn't match the menu they gave me at the start of the flight, not that I minded because the option I was given was pretty tasty."
Cons: "at last minute itinerary was changed.. instead of routing through Brisbane, was now routed through Sydney. Flight from Sydney to LAX was delayed by 4 hours, then missed flight LAX to LAS... overall long delayed arrival. Checked the route through Brisbane, and those flights we're all there, departed and landed all on-time... so wondering what the reason was for the change of the itinerary without a cause (no cancel or delayed flights through Brisbane)"
Pros: "Good collection of movies"
Cons: "To pay for luggage for international flights while on their website it says i dont have to pay if im going to South Africa. The food was not so great."
Pros: "Nobody are better hosts than the British. Great service, lovely people."
Pros: "A smoothtrip run by great staff."
Cons: "Thé food was rather stodgy overall."
Pros: "The ground staff was on top of it and the boarding process was smooth, but the cabin crew was brilliant. I’ve never had such pleasant service on a western airline. Well done. Entertainment system is top-notch, and the food was acceptable."
Cons: "The booking process and paying for luggage is disappointing. Plus, I paid a $90 upgrade and just moved up two rows in the same section. Sneaky."
Pros: "Great, friendly, professional crew, clean comfortable plane. Loved that full dinner and baggage and wine was included in an economy class overnight from DC to London as well as breakfast. Best flight in a long time, will definitely fly again."
Cons: "the tv screen's touch screen capabilities could use an upgrade, it was a hassle to navigate, not very sensitive to touch."
Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"
Cons: "Staff was not concerned about anything, vague and uncaring..this was my son flying across the Atlantic idiots!! One pissed mom!!!"
Cons: "10 hour delay in Brisbane was terrible"
Pros: "Free drinks! Lots of food and good entertainment. Glad to have a free blanket and headphones as well."
Cons: "Economy seating wasn’t that comfortable"
Cons: "You charged me for a checked bag. This wasn't made clear when I booked the flight."
Pros: "Talk about an awesome experience. I loved the friendly staff and the accommodations were superb. I could ask for no better. Even the food was excellent."
Cons: "I have nothing but praise."
Pros: "The onboard crew were lovely."
Cons: "Stood at check in for over 30 mins with no staff in sight. Boarding was a disaster. Staff was not prepared nor organized and the crowds were unbearable. Upgraded seats were laughable and not worth an extra $60. Food was mediocre. Entertainment would have been good but GE touchscreens are so old, they were difficult to work."
Pros: "Francesca was the flight attende t that I had most the most interactions with was very friendly and warm."
Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff."
Pros: "Met expectations."
Cons: "Things out of your control - time !!"
Cons: "A plane from 1960? No entertainment center!"
Pros: "Good Virgin experience though food was not brilliant"
Cons: "Seating was very uncomfortable. Hardly any padding in the seats and very little leg room. Far worse than any previous Virgin flight."
Pros: "Not flown with Delta in many years and impressed by the aircraft (A320), crew and customer service"
Cons: "Check-in was a bit of a hassle as kiosk would not accept our details but agent was able to resolve the problem"
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: "A large selection of movies, shows and music to choose from. Flight crews were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The narrow space between each rows for passengers to move from their seats."
Pros: "I felt that they were very thoughtful about the fact that it was a long flight. We got two small meals, which was perfect, and even a little gift bag with a sleep mask and toothbrush and such in it. These were just a couple of the many nice touches included in the flight."
Cons: "Very small quibble: the screen resolution, or maybe the contrast, of the personal video players was not so great. This was fine in most cases, but it meant I could not watch videos that had subtitles. Not a big deal but possibly worth fixing. Thanks"
Pros: "Getting to Barbados from Manchester airport is convenient"

Cons: "My seat was directly under the aircon and it was blowing very cold all night which made it quite uncomfortable. Fortunately I had an extra blanket which I could wrap over my head."
Missed the flight due to delay of gulf airlines .. and there is no representative in London to discuss about the problem .. we waited about a day no one responded from airline , they rebooked us 2 days after and didn’t have accommodations.. worst behavior ever … expecting atleast a response either positive or negative from airline … it would be serious issue with AA and gulf haven’t resolve this issue … impact would be on gulf
The flight was a transit and I had my boarding pass from the departure. I have talked to the check in person to set me up close to my family seats and ended up with my wife in one seat, 3 years old son in different seat and myself on different seat. very disappointing and overwhelming.
Greeting BH International Airport, Flight No. GF-2101 From Bahrain to Dammam At 1:35 am. to 2:20 am. Booking reference: WFYQEG I was informed that I will receive my baggage in Dammam Airport, later on I arrived in Dammam and I didn’t get my baggage, they claimed due to my friend Mr. Faisal didn’t show because he left the Airport and drive his own car all the way to Dammam. OK, I get it and I totally respect the system when you don’t show up your baggage get dropped from the flight, but it’s not my fault when i stay in Bahrain Airport waiting for my next flight around 5 hours then once i get to Dammam I don’t receive my baggage, because my friend who’s didn’t show up his baggage was arrived to Dammam airport, and i’m the one who deserve to get his own baggage didn’t receive anything. I think you mixed up between our baggage, the tag on my bag has his name but actually it’s mine and his bag has my name but actually it’s for him, that’s why I received his bag in DMM airport and I didn’t get mine and i was so frustrated. Also here’s the baggage numbers: GF 175011 My baggage wasn’t received GF 175008 His baggage was received and he don’t deserve to receive it because he left the airport and didn’t show up the flight For now i need to get my baggage to DMM airport please or contact me in personal please +966559600495 or this email. Kind regards, Mohammed Sent from my iPhone
Pros: "The ground staff from the help desk was helpful enough"
Cons: "I could have been rebooked a flight without having to pay for it. Who wants to lost his or her passport? It was very inconvenient and stressful for me, at least free rebooking would have ease my situation."
Pros: "Pleasant and efficient crew made a middle of the night flight (01.00 - 05.30) quite bearable! Food good too."
Pros: "New & clean aircraft"
Pros: "I' not sure which flight this relates to. I've taken economy and business class and clearly the business class is better but economy is fine. The crew were good in both classes and whilst the food in business was better I didn't have a problem in economy either."
Cons: "Check in was fine and very friendly but boarding could be better particularly in business. At Heathrow it was a bit chaotic as all classes seemed to be mixed up so it was difficult for priority passengers such as disabled to get through everyone crowded up to the desks and the same applied for business class as well. The IFE wasn't too bad but it could be better. Bahrain airport is a mess and the boarding gates seem to be more like corridors with seats in them so it's difficult again when they call for business class passengers as unless you are already at the front you have to try to work your way through. I believe the airport is being rebuilt. If so then things will probably improve. I'm not sure why there needs to be 2 security checks within a few yards of each other when transiting between flights. they don't have this problem in Doha."
Pros: "Crew was good"

Cons: "The (A321) plane could done with an overhaul, but understandable as to why it is the way it is; for the purpose short hauls. Besides, the flight was only for an hour. Other than that, nothing much more to say."

Pros: "Being able to watch new releases. The food was good."
Cons: "Times we ate took too long. We were on a 10+ hour flights and it would've been better if we ate more. No leg room in your Isle, you must become a stick and not move, become one with the plane. In Bahrain they force us to cancel our flight and charged us extra 600+ USD to move the flight to the next day. Even though I paid for insurance, then I had to pay an extra 20BD for my wife to leave the island, and it took 2 hours to tell us we owe 20BD... Bahrain is a place I would not like to return."
Pros: "The food and services in Bahrain airport and in plane"
Cons: "Although I do not have small children, I think it would be helpful to allow people traveling with small children to board a few minutes ahead of everyone else."
Pros: "The security check was horribly handled. There was a chance for missing the flight."
