Cons: "We had a delay to boarding due to a mechanical issue. THANK YOU for making quick turn around decisions (ie, put us on another plane at another gate) - rather than just piling on delays!"

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "Delta Comfort was no where near as good as a similar class on other airlines, such as Air France or KLM."

Pros: "Delta crews are very friendly and helpful. Seats are 'good' on the E175 plane - better than the cramped CRJ200 on some other short flights.

Pros: "They had available seats on an earlier flight and I was able to get home super quick! My checked bag also made it which was great!"

Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "As soon as we all were boarded we where told there was a mechanical issue. Sat on the boarded cramped flight for 2 hours until issue was fixed. If there was a mechanical issue then the plane should’ve not been boarded until it was fixed. Much rather have waited in lobby for 2 hours than on a plane with no food and water. Or at least alllowed us to deboard while issues where resolved."

Cons: "No Gluten free option"

Pros: "Once we finally boarded, it was fine- plane was new and clean and entertainment system was great. Agents did the best they could with limited information on flight status. Provided snacks at departure gate- but they were all unhealthy."
Cons: "Flight originally booked with 2:30pm departure time, was pushed to 4:30pm a few weeks in advance. Then the flight was delayed on the day by 30 minute intervals until 9pm. Finally, we were switched to a different gate to board a different plane. Then sat on the plane at the gate for another hour so they could load all the bags. We didn't take off until 10:30pm- painful."

Pros: "Excellent leg room. Comfy seat"
Cons: "Seat couldn't recline back. Was a little uncomfortable for a long flight. Chair had crumbs on it before I sat down-it was easily wiped away meaning no one had cleaned the chairs or looked at them beforehand. Absolutely freezing. Wearing long socks and boots and my feet still felt frozen by the end."

Pros: "No vegetarian options in first class.. and go go wouldn5 hook up. Flight was an hour late...but that was ok."
Cons: "The pilot did a nice job of flying in and banking so we could see the view.."

Cons: "Landing was frightening."

Pros: "First Class seating."
Cons: "Left from Terminal 3, so went to Terminal 3. Stood in line, then was told to go to Sky Priority at Terminal 2. Went to Sky Priority at Terminal 2, stood in line, then was told to go to Delta One desk further down. Once my bag was checked, had to go back to Terminal 3 to board."

Pros: "Decent food . On time arrival !"
Cons: "It was fine"

Cons: "Cancelled my flight then re-booked me for the next day; was able to then find a flight same day but 7 hours later. That then was delayed another 4 hours and I had to buy a rental car to drive home instead. Thus far they have been unresponsive in getting me a refund for my travel. Don't fly Delta."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First day our flight got canceled 1 hour before leaving the airport. No good explanation given. Planes were landing and departing from Columbus just our flight got cancelled which made no sense. Over the phone no one was really helpful. Very bad experience with Delta"

Pros: "Nice crew, good entertainment"
Cons: ""Upgraded" from an aisle seat to middle seat between two heavy people, very uncomfortable even in comfort plus."

Pros: "Delta Comfort seats"
Cons: "Shuttle driver stopped to talk to a friend thus making me late snd missed my connecton. Rude agents at gate and when I called and spoke to a Delta representative, was told that they would have never put me on that flight due to short connection time. To which I replied that thet is an issue between Delta and their business withthe booking site and the customer should not be to blame"

Cons: "You have to pay for the ckecked baggage ($25 per piece) and the airfare was not cheap."

Pros: "Easy loading and unloading the plane. Friendly staff"

Pros: "Uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The airport was good"
Cons: "There's could be a better customer service at the counter of the plan the Lufthansa worker that work at the front disck they was so rod and the travelers has a lot of issues with them and the way the talk to the travelers they was like we're kids or slave to them"

Cons: "The people sitting beside me was very loud and they didn’t stop talking the whole time."

Pros: "United airlines check in lady in Knoxville TN, She was efficient, caring and awesome. I also loved the air hostesses on Lufthansa flights, they found space for my bags on board and took care of me all flight long!"
Cons: "Lufthansa gate staff may be in need for a better attitude and not the one of a disgruntled child. I would have expected my 3 checked in bags to arrive with me in Cairo, they did not, so making sure the checked in bags arriving with the passengers can be an needed improvement!"

Cons: "The entertainment system broke down completely on the whole plane and the crew was sort of grumpy."

Pros: "On the airline website the price of the ticket was $3000 and I bought it for $750 on Kayak, I expected delays, cancellations or something to go wrong and justify that price drop. Nothing of that sort happened! It was a comfortable and on time trip with no problems!"

Pros: "Smooth flight."

Pros: "Very friendly and professional crew"
Cons: "Outdated entertainment system on the plane"

Pros: "The attendents were very nice"
Cons: "It was a 4 hour flight with no entertainment"

Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "The sound quality of the loud speakers for the announcement was awful. The sound for the movies was also not great."

Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Waiting for long time in a crowded bus to NORAD the plane then rushing out of the bus to Nita the plane with no lines and having to wait for the crowds outside the lane in a freezing temperature. Furthermore, there was no entertainment on the plane and the food was horrible. Add to this the very cramped seat space and no carry ons in the plane (unless you speak German)"

Pros: "Overall, the main leg to Frankfurt was fine for entertainment and boarding; the staff was pleasant; but, the seats on all legs were ridiculously tight, and the planes were packed like sardines. I was stuck on window seats on 2 of 3 legs, despite requesting window seats, and the comfort on all legs was terrible. In future, I will take advantage of an upgrade offer from the Airline."
Cons: "Read previous comments on likes. In summary, the flight was too full, and the service for my seating was OK. That is it... OK."

Pros: "Crew was good and caring."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and narrow compare to other airlines plane. There was no in flight entertainment available and that was ridiculous."

Pros: "Didn’t like absolutely nothing"
Cons: "We had to walk from gate z all the way to gate B carrying all the bags which was painful, the plane was very tight and old that I had to put all my carry on bags in the floor. I personally had to help the crew members to pick up the food trays because they were very limited and no entertainment at all which was really boring."

Pros: "Good smooth flight, wine offered in economy. Crew wonderful"
Cons: "Fully booked, so a little crowded"

Pros: "Attendes very keen in attend Crew increased the speed to repair the delay"
Cons: "Delay due weather"

Cons: "I can't believe you fit in an additional row of seats between the exit doors and business class. Do you think your customers can be packed like sardines?"

Pros: "Frankfurt to Cairo boarding was in organized gate 61 toilet not cleane 90% of the phone chargers in Frankfurt airport not working"
Cons: "Lufthansa is a big name must do something for that"

Cons: "Services on the planes were not fantastic"

Cons: "Ran out oof meal choices twice"

Cons: "Dear sir or Madam, I’m writing this complaint as I feel so mistreated and so disrespected, I had a ticket# 2208688265549 with a confirmation# WP6DHB travelling from Tulsa , OK, USA to Cairo, Egypt. Everything was great as expected and recommended by my uncle who travels with your respected company at least twice a month till I got to Frankfort airport to take flight# 0582 from Frankfort to Cairo. I was stopped while heading to the plan by the flight manager as he called himself later, and told me that I have to only have one item on the plan, I already had one carry on and my hand bag that has my laptop and the charger, I told him that I was told by Lufthansa customer service the night before traveling to confirm the luggage weight and size that I’m allowed one carry on plus personal item like a hand bag or lap top bag and they have to meet specific dimensions. I even offered to call the customer service number for verification, he replied ‘’I don’t care, I’m the flight manager and you will do what I say’’. His words were really hurting, I showed him the tag on my carry on that I got from the previous flight it said (approved carry on) don’t remember exactly what it said, he reached to my carry on and tare that tag, I didn’t think that was appropriate even if the tag had no value he doesn’t have any right to touch my luggage without my approval, then he tried to grab my ticket from my hand saying I will get you off the flight, I got really upset and told him don’t touch my belongs. There was a moment of silence because I think I raised my voice (my apology to him and to the company for that), I realized that the conversation is not going any where so I decided to file a complaint (not because he wanted to me to only have one item but mostly because of his attitude) so I asked him for his employment ID number he walked away without saying anything, waited till he walked close enough that I can ask him again this time he refused to give me his employment ID number, asked him for his name he said it so softly, I asked him to spell because I didn’t hear it right he said it so softly he refused, then I had to look for his badge and the name on the badge I believe his first name started with P and last name started with T. I waited a few days till I got to talk to my uncle and told him what happened as he is the one who recommended Lufthansa and he has a lot of experience with your services he said that they might need to do that because the flight was complete and they want to offer luggage place for everybody, but what I surprising is there was many empty seats on the plan my seat was 032C and the 2 seats beside me (032A and 032B) were empty also there was a lot of carry-ons room everywhere. So I don’t know why he was this way with me, I’m really disappointed specially that is only my first flight with Lufthansa since 2015, that flight manager made me have an extremely rough experience. one more thing when I told him I’m going to compla"

Pros: "The most comfortable trip"

Pros: "Crew are very helpful, but some how looked unorganized"
Cons: "Complete unorganization during boarding. Not enough staff. Plane is small and no entertainment for a 4:30 out trip."

Pros: "Attendants"
Cons: "Thisnisnthe locationwhere my luggage got stuck"

Pros: "The crew did a great job. It was a little slow to board and disembark but again I'm pretty sure it was the people."
Cons: "One of the crew members at the airport said I had to check my bag but a woman with a bigger bag went on the flight with out having to check her bag. The people flying to Cairo are horrible. Rude, disgusting, disorganized. Took forever to board and disembark the aircraft. If I didn't have to fly to Cairo for work I would never take this flight again in my life. Not much you can do as an airliner though, maybe just warn the tourists about the flight."

Pros: "Nothing. It was awful. Worst flight in years."
Cons: "Airport,business lounge, boarding process-they didn't know what was going on, business class seats we're nobody size seats, awful food-was supposed to be a hot breakfast but it was dinner instead, no entertainment, no tv screens, said they had wifi but they didn't. Nothing good about the flight. Crew was more concerned about keeping their curtain pulled than anything else."

Cons: "No screens at all and the boarding was messy"

Pros: "nothing to say - low cost carrier level"
Cons: "nothing to say - low cost carrier level"

Pros: "Boarding process was efficient. Staff on the plane were very courteous."
Cons: "Your Economy seats are TOO SMALL! I'm 6-foot-4. It was physically PAINFUL to sit in the seats. My legs kept falling asleep and cramping up because I literally can't fit in your seats. Stop trying to squeeze every bloody dime you can out of a plane and add some more space in the seats. Passengers paying over a $1500 for 12-hour flights deserve to be treated better! That was horrible and bordering abusive!"

Pros: "Everything about the service staff the plane amazing"

Cons: "No any form of inflight entertainment Uncomfortable chairs Food was below average I had to ask 3 times for a glass of water"

Pros: "The food, the crew and the entertainment were top-notch, best flight I've been on. Economy was more comfortable than other flights :) will always try to fly with Lufthansa in the future!"

Cons: "Not friendliest crew"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The layover time was too short and for the second time I barely made it to my connecting flight but my luggage didn't. That is very annoying."

Pros: "Pretty much everything"

Pros: "The flight attendant was helpful in confirming that my connection gate was C14."
Cons: "I only had 45 minutes between my Washington DC flight and my flight to Frankfurt and the flight to DC was delayed by a few minutes. Because the carry-on baggage had to be checked it took extra time to get my bag after the plane landed and my connecting gate was in terminal C (I arrived at terminal A), so I barely had enough time to get there, even when walking at full speed and not stopping once along the way. This was too short of a time between the two flights."

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. Plane interior was in new condition, including electronic window shade tinting."
Cons: "Staff was not particularly warm or attentive. Was never offered more to drink, and after asking for more wine was ignored."

Cons: "No internet available (2020). For the my previous flight, a month ago, was the same problem."

Cons: "The plane is so old..,"

Cons: "Fix the damn KIOSKS at Vienna!"

Pros: "The entertainment was amazing"
Cons: "The seats were a bit hard"

Pros: "The crew were really helpful with people who had tight connections because of the delayed flight"
Cons: "I wish they had WiFi"

Pros: "Everything was good except for the entertainment consul for one of our seats."
Cons: "One of our entertainment consuls had to be rebooted 4 times and still didn’t work. We gave up asking."

Pros: "Very pleased with KLM - efficiency all round and especially the baggage handling at Schipol swhere I had 20 minutes to transfer and my baggage came back with me to the UK which is no mean feat given the hustle and bustle of such a large airport"
Cons: "No downsides at all"

Pros: "All good"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The food."

Cons: "I booked tickets via Delta, operated by KLM. They lost both of my check in bags in September, and it happened again today for the same scheduled flights. Had 4 hours of layover and KLM still wasn’t able to manage it."

Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."

Pros: "Everything OK"

Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Seat a little cramped."

Pros: "Last year I flew Lufthansa which was my worst experience flying ever. I thought the new standard was so low I would never fly to Europe again. I had heard KLM was good but I felt this was as good as could be expected actually much better. The food was even good."
Cons: "I would have to dream something up."

Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."

Pros: "Friendly hostesses"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"

Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."

Pros: "Good flight, very attentive crew."

Pros: "The flight to Gdansk took off and arrived on-time and the staff were professional."
Cons: "The flight to Amsterdam from Gdansk was late and I had to RUN to the connecting gate. 50 minutes is NOT ENOUGH time to go through passport control."

Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"

Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."

Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food and one bathroom out of service makes an awful flight"

Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"

Pros: "Great service"

Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."

Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"

Cons: "Bag was lost"

Pros: "The crew came to get me from the arrival gate to get to the departure gate since our plane was delayed. It helped to know that the airline was checking to make sure we made the flight."
Cons: "I did not get my luggage in Nairobi. The delayed flight that was the most likely reason it did not get to the connecting flight to Nairobi."

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

Cons: "They stole my money"

Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."

Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"

Pros: "Pretty basic one hour flight so there's not much to complain about or praise about. I got some sleep which was good."
Cons: "The crew had their general Dutch aloofness on form. Chatted to one of the stewardesses in Dutch up until she saw I had a British passport then she decided she could only speak English to me."

Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"

Cons: "The Guy who had an accident when boarding causing a delay. Also I didn’t like the wait fir checking as passengers with children went before business class and should be after."

Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "old old plane, very uncomfortable. Tiny bad screen made movies pointless"

Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."

Pros: "Boarding/unboarding"
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."

Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."

Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew were really helpful since I am a short person in putting my luggage away in the overhead compartment and attentive to everyone's needs. I am a fussy eater and don't really like airplane food but the food was actually really nice. We was given plenty of snacks and drinks in between meals as well. There was plenty of programmes to choose from to keep me entertained."
Cons: "The seats in economy were a little too small for a 12 hour flight"

Pros: "."

Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."

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

Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"

Pros: "Upgrade was easy! Crew was beyond exceptionable! Can’t wait to fly again, guys!"

Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us."

Pros: "More leg room"
Cons: "Space"

Cons: "Delay in take off 45 min!!!!"

Cons: "I was catching a flight in Paris to Aberdeen after arriving from Malaga. The time between flights was not enough 55 mins as the gate closed 20 mins before departure and it takes at least 15 minutes from arrival to taxi to the terminal and then get off the plane. I had to change from terminal F to E which was well sign posted but I only made it with 4 minutes to spare"

Cons: "2 hours delays from LAX to CDG then additional two hours delay from CDG to CAI, this is disappointing"

Cons: "Seat angle adjustment was not the most comfortable for sleeping."

Pros: "Seats are comfortable on Business Class. Service is good"
Cons: "Constant delays specially from CDG! Poor cabin service specially on this flight."

Cons: "Our request for vegetarian meals got lost after a glight was cancelled."

Pros: "Crew very professional"
Cons: "Boarding was a little confusing"

Cons: "The craft is a bit old. Harsh landing."

Pros: "Bag was sent straight to NY although Norwegian screwed it up. Am yet to receive my luggage."

Cons: "Seat was super uncomfortable. Could not fit in my legs at all, could not recline it enough. Maybe sufficient for a one hour flight, definitely not on an intercontinental flight."

Cons: "There was no entertainment and the food could be better"

Pros: "The cue lines per zone are the most brilliant idea!"
Cons: "After boarding began there was a backup after the gate en route to the plane. No explanation. The plane left an hour later than scheduled but seemed to arrive close to scheduled time."

Pros: "cbvghjkl;"
Cons: "mmmm"

Cons: "Check in process running smoothly and better announcement of gate change"

Cons: "Two hour delay meant we missed our connection. Then given a very late flight and had to haggle for ages to get earlier flight and told we should pay extra for it!"

Cons: "make passengers from Nigeria to feel respected and important. Imagine no entertainment in the aircraft in addition to a very poor food."

Pros: "The crew was very gentile."
Cons: "No enterteinment on the plane."

Pros: "Extremely hot the plane"

Pros: "Really liked the new touch screens (with very good responsiveness). Also liked the food selection (the champagne was nice, so was the menu we were given)."

Cons: "they lost our luggage very inconvenient"

Cons: "My first flight was cancelled my return flight was delayed by 5 hours They made me check my carry on even though it was with in the size limit which cost 85 euros and when trying to ask why the staff was extremely rude and not helpful worst flight experience I’ve ever had"

Pros: "Everything. crew friendly and food/drinks the best"
Cons: "Nothing...all was wonderful"

Pros: "En deux mots, tout était médiocre, avion, « nourriture » (si on appeler ça comme ça) même les hôtesses travaillaient avec une sale gueule.. Très déçu d’Air France"
Cons: "Le capitain et l’aterrisage"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane (Boeing 777) is packed like a sardines can, with 10 narrow uncomfortable seats across in Economy Class. The crew didn't even bring water for an 1,5 hr into the flight! The plane was very hot, with very little air flowing through the salon. Food was bland for dinner and inedible for breakfast. The crew was barely there, and borderline rude when asked something."

Pros: "Great food (Economy class). Good Service"
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms on Economy class area due to aircraft design."

Cons: "Plane left more than 40 minutes late with no explanation or apology."

Cons: "I am not sure why this happened, but our daughter, travelling away from home for the first time, was targeted at every step of her journey. From the terminal in DCA to Cincinnati, to CDG. Delta/Air France clearly singled her out. i am outraged! I have traveled many, many times and have sent hundreds of students on nearly the same trip -- and none have had as rough a time as she had. They will be hearing from me."

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Airplane really old. Cabin configuration economy was in front of economy plus. Just 1 bathroom for economy and economy plus. Economy plus seats old and uncunfuttable ( more than it should be )"

Pros: "We got to the desk to check in and there was one person being served in front of us. He finished with him, turned and left the area through the dooor. No one came to help us for 15 minutes. Then they came out to answer the phone and said we were 10 minutes past the cut off and we could not fly."
Cons: "Staff just walked away while we were in line, the rudeness and mean attitude, they blamed us for being too late after ignoring us and made us late, they didn't offer an alternative flight until we asked. Overall, horrible customer service. Never been treated so rudely by people in the airlines industry in my entire 42 years of flying!"

Pros: "Plus seat was good. On board crew was nice."
Cons: "Another Air France company, with their motto: We Don't Care. Ground staff was rude, no good food onboard and have to pay for it. Entertainment is your device, but you can't download the app to use it."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They loosed our reserved seats, our luggage, food was awful, ground staff was disrespectful."

Pros: "The hostesses were very kind and nice"

Cons: "It was delayed"

Pros: "The seats are spacious. They give you great amenities such as a toothbrush, etc. The crew was very nice. The food was also superb for airplane food."
Cons: "The check in process was terrible at SFO. We all felt like cattle being herded on. It was such a mess. The seats are surprisingly uncomfortable in premium economy. The headrest is not conducive to sleeping."

Pros: "Very old plane with very poor screens where images was horrible"

Pros: "Good service all around, personnel pleasant"
Cons: "Very difficult to find where to register with the flight but this is more tied to the way things are run by the airport"

Pros: "Great people"
Cons: "It was an hour late"

Pros: "The Crew was the only thing that stuck out. Associates had Way more patience than i."

Cons: "The crew was not very polite."

Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"
Cons: "Losing my luggage after checking it at the gate when volunteers were needed."

Pros: "The fact that the plane made it to SFO"
Cons: "Downgrade without notice or consent separating family. Paid full fare for family to travel business class together. AF without our knowledge downgraded one member, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. They offered no compensation, no apology, and CDG ground crew was terribly rude. All anyone said was, nothing to be done, now please Leave"

Cons: "Our first leg from Paris was delayed and we missed our flight to Dubrovnik. We then had to hire a car and drive 6 hours to ensure we wouldn't lose a day more of our holiday."

Cons: "I was forced to rebook my 3rd leg after taking trains in the middle."

Cons: "The flight arrived late with no clear explanation as to why. Then there was no EU queue at immigration, so more time wasted."

Pros: "movies were good, crew was great. Comfy seats. It was really as nice as an economy flight could be."
Cons: "delayed flight, hot overall plane, personal TV malfunctioned a lot"

Pros: "The food was good, the staff was very friendly and very nice,"
