Pros: "Efficient, and courteous,seats too were comfy, neat amd clean"
Pros: "Everything was great ,On time , comfortable seeds, Crew were very nice , boarding was quick Thank you Qatar Airways"
Cons: "The food was not served well. There were no snacks on the flight. The service was not even prompt. If I request for juice/water it was served to me after 30-40 minutes . I was travelling with a baby and the staff was not even considerate about it and attending fast. I requested for a mineral water bottle as I ran out of baby water for making milk for the baby and the staff was so reluctant and told "they are done" and just left.I am really dissapointed with this. I doubt if I would travel with qatar again"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight and helpful crew"
Pros: "Overall the flight went well. Flight attendants were attentive and boarding went fairly quickly and flight was smooth."
Cons: "The bathrooms ran out of water. Not a great movie selection and almost didn't have any choice for lunch."
Cons: "Food service was poor; food trays were arranged in a sloppy way; in fact the tray that came to me was not clean at all. First meal service from Doha to Washington (IAD) took nearly 2.5 hours to reach my home after the service started. The male attendants were sloppy, not well organized. When asked why it takes so long, the answer I got: "We were not prepared to meet the customer's preferences." But that does not excuse the long delay in serving row 36."
Pros: "We loved everything. From the moment we walked into the plane we were blown away. Food, air hostesses,flight, you name it was great."

Pros: "Good movies, comfortable seats"
Cons: "Staff was not attentive. When requested for a drink with meal, the hostess promised to bring it later but never did."
Cons: "I used Qatar airways 3 times so far. In the last flight, were a connection has 8 hours between 2 flights, they deny me to stay in a hotel. The last 2 flights which have exactly the same schedule, I used the hotel in that 8 hours between the 2 flights. I asked why, they told me that my ticket is not eligible to the hotel, although, I bought the last two times from Kayak, with almost same price. My first flight with Qatar Airways was on July 2017. My second flight with Qatar Airways was on August 2017. My third flight with Qatar Airways was on Jan 208."
Pros: "From Joburg to Doha, the plane was clean and the food was good. . From Doha to Washington, not so much. I went to 3 bathrooms and all the sinks were stopped up."
Cons: "The food from Doha to Washington was beyond awful!!! I wud scrap that whole menu PLEASE. I WAS SEVERELY DISAPPINTED. The previous Quatar flight, the food was different and very good. Please check on this. Also, the sinks were stopped up. Gross."
Pros: "Helpful and friendly flight staff, comfortable business class seating that provided privacy and room for personal carry-on bag and toiletries."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Excellent staff, good service."
Cons: "A Long. Trip"
Cons: "The crew at the ticket counter was quite rude. Our suitcases were 2kg heavier so, in front of them we opened and removed items and then they still made us go through security all over again"
Pros: "Much better than the flight from Mumbai to Doha. The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Meals could have been better. The good didn't compare to business class on other airlines."

Pros: "Really helpful i was the first one out from airport because i was assigned wheelchair."
Cons: "Everything was all set. Only shortcoming was No free wifi"
Pros: "Onboard crew"
Cons: "Boarding process. It could start on time as printed on the boarding pass. If it is by zone, the provide a few minutes between the zones and adjust time accordingly."
Pros: "Crew professionalism"
Cons: "Food: at best a B+ Laptop Wrapping at gate: very slow process Entertaining: movie variety is poor. Seat: even in business class the seat doesn't recline completely... not very comfortable as compared to other airlines"
Pros: "Seats in Business Class are heaven. You get quality rest. Very spacious. Food is good but should have option of healthy sides (steam or sauteed vegetables dor example). On board crew very helpful and polite with a minor exception"
Cons: "Food is good but should have option of healthy sides (steam or sauteed vegetables dor example). Too much potato. One flight attendant with an attitude can affect overall experience. Not sure if because of inexperience or just the wrong way to approach customers. I could tell this person was struggling trying to be genuinely nice. Complicated process to upgrade from economy to business"
Pros: "For the first time, my vegetarian food was pretty good and I didn't have an upset stomach as soon as I landed in India. It was a miracle for me. Thanks, Qatar airways."
Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable as usual, I am in my 60s. But most of my economy seats are somewhat the same, so no difference."
Cons: "Catering and seating. They ran out of food and drinks"
Pros: "The seating, crew members, and entertainment was really good."
Cons: "I was given two options to choose from for brunch which were scrambled egg with sausage and paratha. Upon asking for paratha I was told that they ran out of Paratha. This happened very first time with me. Even though the crew provided me with excellent service I was surprised to hear the Qatar Airways could run out of food?"
Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Bathrooms were dirty by 4 hours into the 14 hour flight. Sinks clogged, garbage can overflowing. Not just one bathroom. Gross. - Worst flight attendant service I've ever had, and I don't expect much since I've traveled a lot. Service was rushed, coffee cart for our side of plane never arrived, when I walked to the back to ask for some, they couldn't find the milk and made a fuss about looking for sugar. Lots of similar examples throughout the flight. - The baggage claim carousel number never appeared on the screens at IAD after landing. Other flights showed but not Quatar. We waited a while then walked around to check them all until we found the right carousel. Never seen this happen before. - One of our bags never appeared, so we waited until all luggage had come out and checked with the counter. They found our bag somewhere and brought it over after a 20 minute wait. No explanation given. Good thing we'd counted bags."
Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "Crews walking between the lines. They don't care pushing to others. They never said sorry for that."
Pros: "The best service"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
Pros: "Excellent service and aircraft! Top tier entertainment and food and wine."
Cons: "I have flown previously with Qatar and was not so impressed. Everything was great this trip up until my return to the United States. I should have suspected a problem when I was requested to change seat in order to assist a family who were in separate seats. Moving was difficult as the plane was being loaded. I managed to get to the seat offered to find someone sitting in it. To top it off the individual was wearing a surgical mask and carrying a large immigration bag. I requested a seat forward but I was denied and I later saw other passengers moved forward to seats that I was denied. If I had known that the flight would have been full of possibility sick immigrants I would have chosen another flight or airline. At certain times the smells were very bad. I felt as a ff member I should have been treated better or been made aware of possible health risks."
Cons: "No leg room, very confining. Food so-so. I do not recommend traveling on this airline."
Pros: "Seats are very much smaller in economy. Hotel accommodation was no where close to good in comparison to Emirates or Thai."
Cons: "ANAZING flight staff! Friendly and courteous!!!! Loved them on all four flights!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was late boarding everyone on time. It was delayed 1.5 hrs. The entertainment system had its fault, as it was difficult to navigate between screens. The seats were uncomfortable and not enough room for such a long flight. The kids were extremely uncomfortable on this flight, as many were crying throughout the journey."
Cons: "I never made it to the Yerevan to Doha flight, because Qatar Airways did not get me to my destination in time. They had an emergency landing in The Azores, after turbulence and several passengers got injured, when the pilot failed to warn passengers to put on their seat belts and they flew into the air, hitting the ceiling before falling down. One passenger had a heart attack. Once they de-planed us in The Azores, not a single Qatar Airways employee helped us on site anymore. Passengers were left in the hands of hotel and airport staff. There was very little communication with the passengers. A relief flight was supposed to come in 12 hours. It did not come for another 35. After the emergency landing, some passengers noticed that a wing looked defective. The disruption may not have been due only to bad weather, but a defective plane as well."
Pros: "1. Comfortable. 2. Good crew 3. On time 4. No hiccups."
Cons: "1. Not having wi-fi (major) 2. No news channels in in-flight entertainment 3. No snacks"

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "You do a sorry job of keeping couples in seated side by side my wife of 3 days wasn't even in the same row and there were at least three other couples that were done the same way y'all need to pay closer attention to the people that are buying your tickets"
Pros: "Service from crew was excellent. Food was good. Also enjoyed city tour of Doha during long layover."
Cons: "Crying screaming kids under 2 in our section of the plane...counted 15. There needs to be a dedicated baby section on the plane rather than subjecting every passenger to the crying and screaming of babies for long overseas flights, in our case, for 13 hours!"
Cons: "The luggage management system was terrible. We had to wait 2 extra hours for a single carry-on that we had to check in before our 15 hour flight. After a 24 hour journey, it is really inconsiderate to add extra hours to the journey. For luggage, I would give a 1, very poor rating for Qatar Air."
Pros: "Great flights. Lots of room in economy, which is needed for a 14 hour flight. Also excellent personal entertainment system in the seat. This was my first flight on Qatar airlines. I will definitely book on Qatar again."
Pros: "Entertainment and food"
Cons: "Could not sleep... Need more room"
Pros: "Crew was phenomenal. Felt safe and cared fir on flight."
Cons: "Food choices seemed a little under the Qatar standard considering the high level of quality for other aspects of this airline. Not airlines fault but took too long to get yo terminal at IAD Leg room a little tight in economy of 777"
Pros: "For a change, I found the cabin crew extremely courteous and helpful. A remarkable change from the last so many flights flown across different airlines."
Cons: "The entertainment system is poor. Hardly any movies/shows worth watching. The leg space sucks. Agree I was flying cattle class, but even then it seemed to be too cramped."
Pros: "Better than costumer service in Thailand"
Pros: "Economy seating was more comfortable that most planes I've flown."
Cons: "Movie monitor was not working on 4hr flight for wife's seat."
Pros: "What I really impressed me over other airlines was the choice of movies and other entertainment"
Cons: "What I really didn't like was the food. ex. I asked for Hindu good. The choice of chicken I had was never ever cooked by Hindus. The chicken was looking something like a small hot dog served with potatoes which is never a part of Hindu meal. Also the curry was less making the passengers eat dry rice. Some passengers had pickle as choice some had some kind of butter to eat with rice and curry which could never be a combination."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Cabin was very hot"
Pros: "Crew was good but only one thing I don’t know why before landing 30min crew starting collect blankets and headsets it’s making me so upset!"
Pros: "Everything was amazing, I would say best airlines from Male to Dubai. Crew is super amazing as well."
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: "The flight"
Pros: "I have checked in by online system was very easy to do check in, crew was excellent taking care of all the passengers service was excellent food very good, entertainment need to download with Russian language also as well"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "I have never been in a flight where a handful of small children were able to make so much noise. There was one 4 year old that talked so loud for ten hours that not even my headphones could drown him out. Not once did any of the parents tell these kids to use their inside voice"
Pros: "One of the best economy flights I've taken."
Cons: "Food was the worst, service extremely poor"
Cons: "Delayed and no hotel for an 11 hour layover"
Pros: "Left on time. Reached early. Flight crew was friendly. In flight entertainment was good."
Pros: "Nice wide seats"
Cons: "some of the flight attendants were nice and others were openly irritated by the passengers"
Cons: "Excess baggage kilo rate is much more expensive than most airlines"
Pros: "The flight updates, services (meals and refreshments)"
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: "Overall service and special attention to kids"
Cons: "Inadequate washrooms"
Cons: "It was delayed for 8 hours!!!"
Pros: "So, as mentioned, this was our first time flying Emirates and from our flights from Maryland to Dubai to Philippines has been pleasant, the only issue we've had was with the security process and an incident that my wife encountered in Dubai when we were in the process of boarding to go to Washington Dulles. We landed in Dubai and we were in transit to our connecting flight. We went to our assigned gate and had to check in with security prior to waiting in our gate or boarding the plane. We checked in our electronic devices and my wife was asked to be checked. There wasn't anything wrong up until that moment. My wife cooperated with all the requests of the security agent. They asked her to go inside a security room/enclosed area and the first thing that the security agent asked my wife was why she wasn't wearing her wedding band. It was obvious that she was married because she had a tan line of the marks of wearing a ring. It was her travel ring and she removed it because it was too tight and she explained that to the agent. The agent then made the comment "so you got fat on this trip?". My wife was confused on what she said and asked her "what did you say?". The agent then repeated ..."So you're fat... that's why the wedding ring doesn't fit?" My wife was furious but maintained her cool because she didn't want to give a reason for her to be held from getting on the flight. I didn't see the situation take place and I don't know if there was anything that triggered her comment. My wife felt humiliated. I don't know the agent's name but I wanted to address the incident. Our experience with Emirates has been very pleasant but having to feel helpless after someone with authority to make that comment was humiliating and ruined the rest of her time on the flight as well as mine."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "I found out that my payment was not verified as I arrived at the airport and I wasn't informed my email or any kind of way about it. It was a total disaster. Deeply disappointed. Regards"
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: "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: "the amazing atttention from the staff and the cleanliness of the airline."
Cons: "the seats did not go back enough"
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: "Crew couldn't have been friendlier!"
Pros: "Flight wasn't filled. Takes off and lands at not-business ideal times so it was perfect flight for vacation. Crew remained quiet and left lights off full flight instead of turning them on and off"
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."
Pros: "I watched movies the entire time."
Cons: "I didnt like that i had to sleep on metal chairs at Maldives outside airport. My layover was 11hrs and 35 mins and enirates didnt accommodate me at all during the wait. Not even a meal voucher. Talked to a guy named Ishmael Shinad and he was beyond useless. Wasnt the happiest person on flight."
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."
Cons: "19H i guess, window seat's screen was not working"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and the entertainment system (screen, phone charger, etc) including all the entertainment (movies, music, tv shows) was exceptional"
Pros: "comfortable and new airplane"
Cons: "Flight attendants were very rude with a very bad attitude and not friendly."
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"
Pros: "Overall fully satisfied with a safe journey package"
Cons: "The technical problem with flight from Dubai to Dulles could have been resolved before boarding the flight. Crew could have been more clear on how much longer it would take to resolve the problem before and not after boarding the flight."
Pros: "Seats, entertainment center, and service were incredible. Food was great too."
Cons: "Would have liked ability to watch live TV of some sort."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "food and drink selection was good. more new movies and television shows needed."
Pros: "Entertainment, food, comfort were great."
Cons: "Crew is always pleasant but they tend to not manage the other guests when necessary. Many of the other guests would congregate at the rest rooms, did not know how to use the restrooms with out leave it a mess or remains in the toilet and took over an hour sometimes to respond to service requests. In fact the crew seem to disappear for an hour or more after each "dispensing" of food or beverages. Parents need to be spoken to regarding children. There are many people on the plane and children including babies tend to be as loud as they like. That is not considerate for more than 95% of the other passengers. When boarding other passengers need guidance to move things along better. There tend to be clogs at points because passengers try to do too much with the baggage. This is the same for getting off. Passengers would push their way through others to get to bags they stowed many rows behind them. Other passengers need to be curteous of others entering and leaving seats. Getting up and moving is the best options. Many people will sit there and you have to climb other them."
Pros: "Everything was fine. Food, crew, service, entertainment were all wonderful."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Expensive ticket....i paid $500 more than other airlines to get better service but was disapointed nothing special i could have saved $$$ by flying other cariers."
Cons: "Again, I was requested to move seats midway through a flight. A mother of 4 was separated from two of her kids in the flight. About 7 hours into the 14 hour flight, I was asked to move so that one of the children could be placed closer to his mother. Again, I was put in the situation of giving up my own comfort and moving to a middle seat, or standing my ground and disappointing/frustrating the mother. I made the choice to move. But it was disappointing that there was even a need to make these changes. There should be clearer ways for families to book together online."
Pros: "Seat spacing is better than other carriers, food is tastier with more choice. These flights have so many people, all of air flights were full and the crew did a good job managing the numbers."
Cons: "I just felt the crew was busy but not overly caring, maybe a bit surly."
Pros: "Great service, wonderful / super attentive crew"
Cons: "Needed an extra blanket as it was very cold & they had run out of blankets (not a big deal, just a small comfort). Had a few minor issues with movies loading, but also not a big deal."
Pros: "we were updated with info every moment there was a change."
Pros: "Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Old plane. Not sparkling clean... bad leg room"
Pros: "Food and service were great."
Cons: "The usb charger was broken"
Pros: "The crew, food, and choice of entertainment."
Cons: "Customer service in Istanbul was tribble . No help at all with any kinds of questions and issues. The airport staff were unbelievably rude and non responsive, as if they were there to turn off the passengers. Will never travel with any airlines that has to stop in Turkey"
Pros: "Friendly airlines and service was excellent."
Cons: "No anything"
Cons: "The food wasnt good"
Pros: "The Knowledge that I would never fly Turkish airline again"
Cons: "Cancelled flights without contacting me Delayed takeoff for 9 hours. Took off knowing they would not be able to land in Istanbul and dropped us off in Izmir Did not cover the cost of food at the hotel in Izmir. Took us to a hotel over an hour away from the airport"
Pros: "We had a great flight other than the uncomfortable seats. The food was outstanding and the staff the staff was very accommodating. I was glad I was able to charge phone/tablet on the plane"
Cons: "My seat didn't lay back, which made it was difficult to sleep. The seats are too close and generally uncomfortable. I just wish we could have toured Istanbul since we had a long lay-over. Took forever to find out where the tour was only to find out we needed Visas. The airport staff was not helpful. The bus tour is promoted on their website, and it sounded like it was easily accessed as soon as we were off our flight from Johannesburg. Not so."
Pros: "Everything was great. Would never fly another airline if Turkish was available."
Cons: "You must hear this all the time. An eleven hour flight is torture. Maybe a little more padding in the seat cushions. Still, You Are GREAT"
Pros: "A great crew"
Pros: "Choice of in-flight entertainment was excellent."
Pros: "Great flight/airline, but boarding was a hot mess!"
Cons: "Overall, we had a great flight and will probably fly with the Turkish Airlines again. But boarding was an absolute mess: the "secure" gate area was tiny and way too small to accommodate all the people on the flight, and the temperature in that area of the terminal was blistering hot. Combined with an organization that was messy, let's just say that all of us were REAL happy when we finally boarded the plane."
Cons: "Worst boarding as flight was late and who ever was boarding us was rude, I get in my seat was taken, flight attendants were the rudest Iv ever dealt with, anything I asked for was not available, air conditioning was not working in the middle part of the plane. I could not stand sitting so I stood in the back the WHOLE 10 hour flight from the heat. I was so uncomfortable I will definitely take action on this one. I will demand a full refund the whole way I was extremely upset."
Pros: "outstanding flight assistances, excellent food."
Pros: "The food was amazing, and the seats were more comfortable than in other aircrafts."
Cons: "The boarding that took forever. We were standing for about an hour and the place wasn't even well ventilated for the amount of people were there"
Pros: "the flight from Istanbul to the U.S. was amazing, I watch 3 great movies and some wonderful meals. Even though I,flew economy I,felt like it was business class - foot rest pillow and blanket and they hand out hot towels and packs with toothbrushes and socks and slippers. I will definitely. Fly. Turkish Air again based on,this very positive experience"
Cons: "There was one flight attendant who,thought she was all that ..she was rolling her eyes at passengers and had a snotty look on,her face."
Cons: "Refused to refund cancelled flight"
Pros: "The crew was very professional"
Pros: "Food was excellent,lemonade was great"
Pros: "I'll start with the food. Authentic Turkish cuisine with multiple options. The entertainment trumps the food with dozens of movies. Let's face it, this isn't Emirates, but you can't go wrong with 15+ recent movies for a 10 hour flight. I watched three and even got some sleep."
Cons: "Service was subpar, but this was a full flight. Boarding was pretty terrible with 3 security lines. The lines themselves were not a problem, but they did not provide nearly enough room at the gate for this, and the boarding started 2 hours before scheduled take off. Personally, I'd rather not sit on a plane for an hour before having to sit through a 10 hour flight, but we were not given a choice."
Pros: "Crew was fine; food fine."
Cons: "These were probably the most uncomfortable seats I've ever flown in. I'm only 6 ft 1 inch, so I'm not unusual. I could not sit with my knees facing front; I had to splay them out. The tray table would not come all the way down flat before it hit my knees. If there were a lower rating than poor, the seats would have won it; Movies were among the worst ever. where do you get them?"
Pros: "the crew, meal, flight, every thing was excellent"
Cons: "It was nothing about the flight itself but the about the Istanbul terminal. If Turkish airlines wants more people to travel through Turkey should improve the following: 1- Should make free Wifi available to every one. 2- Should keep the bathrooms clean at the terminals."
Pros: "Nice entertainment, nice services, very kind service crew"
Cons: "Everything was so good i can't say; i didn't like something"
Pros: "It was an excellent trip with THY. The crew was very attentive for the requests and the needs of the passengers at all time (regardless of inconsiderate traveler). Since it is usually too expensive for me to travel with THY, one still can get a great deal if looked for deals in advance. Some of the best things about traveling with THY are being able to check 2 bags, unlimited drinks and food at all times and more leg room. Max"
Pros: "I do not like anything"
Cons: "They serve Turkish delight half of them get half not including me When I ask he told me you are sleeping .the time they serve she was air hostess how he can told I was sleeping point to be noted. Same thing they serve pouches I do not get.i will never fly this air line SOHAIL"
Pros: "For a long flight, most were able to sleep. The crew was very busy during the first couple hours and also very present. Movie choices were wonderful. I was lucky enough to have an empty seat next to me although when the man in front of me reclined, his head was practically in my lap."
Cons: "After first service, the crew disappeared. I get very thirsty and was in need of water more often than they were willing to pass it out. I did not go to galley to request additional water, which likely would have been provided! Passengers made a MESS in aisles & lavs, which was not picked up thru the flight."
Pros: "The flight was very pleasant. I was traveling wit my 2-year old and they brought him a little Batman vs Superman bag with an inflatable airplane, airplane binoculars, and slap on watch. They also brought him an activity book. I thought this was a lovely touch that helped keep my child entertained on our long flight. Adults also received a goody bag with grippy socks, slippers, eye mask, lip balm, toothbrush with toothpaste, and ear plugs. It was a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "Someone was escorted off our plane when our flight landed for unknown reasons. This was the day after the terrorist attacks in Belgium at the airport and metro, and the crew asked the person being escorted off the plane if he had taken all of his bags. If this person was a terrorist, do you really think he would just tell you if he left a bag of explosives on board?"
Pros: "I Am like The Service"
Cons: "I Am like everithiry the service and food"
Pros: "Usb charging, entertainment was nice."
Cons: "Ran out of chicken dishes- only had beef to offer. Seats were slightly uncomfortable. Crew was not very friendly/smiley."
Pros: "Loved the food service."
Cons: "The cabin was very hot? How do they work like that? I'm surprised the flight attendants didn't get heat stroke. Anyway, I suppose its cultural as I noticed a lot of places overly heated in turkey."
Pros: "Food and drink made two long trips very comfortable."
Cons: "My trip originated at Ivato airport in Antananarivo, where even with only one checked bag weighing 12 kg, and the proper carry on, I was harassed for bribes. An hour after clearing security, I was called down to the baggage area, where after emptying my 12 kg bag, "national police" lost my transit tag for final destination in US. Turkish Air employees made the extra effort to print out a new one, but I was asked for "gifts" or "rhum" by 3 different Ivato police, baggage boys, etc."
Pros: "Good service on board."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Not comfortable"
Cons: "food and entertainment package was not at all good. co-passenger drinks heavily and makes me uncomfortable as she was totally unbalance"
Cons: "no leg room entertainment was lacking..."
Pros: "When they did speak clear English they shouted at passengers to 'Shut Up and you'll wait'."
Cons: "Counter people at Turkish airlines in Istanbul told us to 'Shut Up and you'll wait'."
Pros: "The flight crew was great. Food was excellent and very little turbulence on this flight."
Cons: "We missed the flight due to Turkish airline airport staff being incompetent. Flight was delayed to 4 pm from 12:35 the day before and we did not leave until closer to 6 or 7 pm. I would not recommend flying into Istanbul as the airport seems to be very disorganized, and might not totally be the fault of the airline. We waited for 3 hours to get new boarding passes for a new flight and then after waiting 3 more hours in the hotel line, Turkish airlines said "we are out of hotels" and left a large number of customers stranded at the airport. When trying to get reimbursed for the hotel, the staff at the airport was clueless. I won't be flying Turkish Airlines again."
Cons: "By far Turkish Airlines has the least amount of leg room available on an international flight (coach class) that I've ever traveled . . . and I'm saying that as a career pilot. If you are over 6' tall, you will be in agony on any flight that crosses the pond (I traveled on their Airbus A330 and Boeing 737 . . . same story). My tailbone was pegged to the back of my seat, yet my knees were still smooshed into the seat in front of me. I was absolutely miserable. I ended up standing in the back next to the toilets for over 2.5 hours of the 10 hour flight because that was more comfortable than sitting in this cattle car."
Pros: "I enjoyed the meals and the service,"
Cons: "The zipper in my new suitcase was broken at the IAD airport."
Pros: "Great hot meals and in-flight entertainment Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Best of the best so far!"
Pros: "I didn't like there service b/c they weren't helpful at all. Also I had my baby with me and they didn't give her anything to play with as usually airlines do."
Pros: "Wifi on some flights"
Pros: "from the people in the airport to the air crew, they provide a great service! further than any other airline. I have fly twice with them and is always a pleasure."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No wifi on the plane"
Pros: "Amazing service Great Food Best attutude in the sky (flight attendants)"
Cons: "The heat before take off"
Pros: "Service and other legs more uptight crew set bad tone while getting a stretch near bath rooms -12 hour flight!"
Cons: "Crew was not so friendly"
Pros: "Seats were TOO close, my knees were jammed into a seat back for 11 hours and the people next to me were incorigable."
Pros: "Food was excellent, well presented. Nice crew. It's the little extra touches that make this airline nice. Bathrooms were large and well kept cleaned."
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."
Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Pros: "Pumpkin soup instead of a heavy entree was welcome and tasty. Breakfast yogurt portion was generous, the granola less so. Accompaniments were good. Butter was not ice cold, thank goodness."
Cons: "Inbelievably chaotic boarding process for Kili to Dar leg. No boarding lanes so had to fight through the crowd. Was able to observe cleaning process at Dar stop, which was cursory and am sure there was no cleaning of seats of those who boarded at Kili."
Cons: "Klm is the best, even on a 40min they served small breakfast."
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Cons: "When its rain we shouldn’t walk to the air plain"
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"
Cons: "Everything was OK"
Pros: "Food was great, enjoyed watching videos, staff very profession and friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and prolonged My Baggage was not transferred and was not available when I arrived in Dulles."

Cons: "Food quality was not so good."
Cons: "The plane was very hot"
Pros: "Amazing services .. on time just exactly .. I feel really happy onboard KLM ❤️"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "KLM staff is great"
Cons: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Pros: "Economy comfort was very nice, food decent, plenty of toilets to avoid overcrowding, and good entertainment selection."
Pros: "And i got it 2 days later. I had to buy a lot of items which were in my suitcase The returning of the suitcase was awfull. In tge end after many phone calls I received it On the 18/12 evening, 2 days after my landing"
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."
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, landing at vce took an additional 10 minutes due to no one at the jet way. Luggage service was very slow"

Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"
Pros: "The entertainment options were good."
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!"
Cons: "... ear plugs, masks, good food or even picking seats? I remember when it was all complementary and standard on overnight flights. Oh, and the vegetarian breakfast was unfortunately poor as well. I know you can do better, because you used to."
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."
Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Klm flight has very congested seating Getting information about eticket was pain"
Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."
Pros: "The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful."
Cons: "The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be."
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"
Pros: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"
Cons: "With skyteam elite status cannot select free upgrade from economy to premium economy unless it is 30hrs before boarding for this code share which is actually a KLM flight"
Pros: "It was very comfortable"
Cons: "The crew was great"
Pros: "The service of the crew onboard"
Cons: "Entertainment not to many recent movies and the boarding process was a little bit confusing."
Pros: "- entertainment systen was OK (movies), but has no current news - food was good - windows can be darkened progressively"
Cons: "- Schiphol airport (AMS) is small, crowded, noisy; no water fountains; toilets are dirty and insufficient in number; SFO is much better - KLM boarding process was chaotic (not by group or row number), boarding/security personnel (4 old guys) didn't have a clue - 787 is noisy, chairs are uncomfortable (my back still hurts) and very close together, they also recline way too much - food trays not collected promptly - noisy babies on all flights - clearly not enough cabin crew for a full flight - no or wrong info by pilots on timing (crew are always lying anyway) - gate is all around the back at SFO (long taxi to get there) - they inserted people in wheelchairs during deboarding thus holding everybody up."
Pros: "Great food and movies."
Cons: "Might have lost my bag. I was told not to claim my bag and that it would meet me at my final destination. That did not happen. I even paid extra because of the over weight. When they charge you 100 extra euro you expect your bag to make it to its final destination."
Pros: "Excellent crew made this flight very enjoyable. A lot of information during the flight about the route, arrival times and clear explanation of the departure delay. Very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Only 1 drinks round on a 3h flight."
Pros: "Crew were responsive. 787 has more legroom & better recliner, window shading was amazing"
Cons: "Vegetarian food quality needs improvement"
Cons: "Poor service"
Pros: "The air hostess was very helpful .I had a problem with my seat and she arranged for a seat where I was and remained comfortable throughout my flight to Washington. Love"
Cons: "The food. I had asked for a Hindu meal. It seemed I got a diabetic meal which was devoid of taste. It should have been normal. I think Etihad misunderstood Hindu meal with Jain food,where they don't use spices,onions,garlic etc."
Pros: "Friendly and professional. Always with a smile."
Pros: "Customer service very good"
Cons: "Seat discomfort"
Pros: "I liked the cooperation of staff and the way they took care of me. Staff Took care of my request immediately and made sure I was comfortable. It was a blessing to travel in Etihad. In future , I will travel in Etihad only. I am planning to travel in June again and will book my ticket in my favorite airline, “ ETIHAD”"
Cons: "N. A."
Pros: "Every thing was good"
Pros: "Connections on Etihad. Abu Dhabi airport. Service and hospitality. On time flights and easy check in. US immigration in Abu Dhabi was a breeze."
Cons: "Food was terrible and insufficient."
Cons: "The Crew do not give you the meal what you booked during reservation, what is the point in booking the meal prior if it is not served."
Pros: "Staff was great...Food was good...Upgraded to first class !!!!!"
Pros: "Seats were very comfy and food was great. Entertainment screen were nice and big with great resolution. Cabin crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Movie selection in the entertainment needs more options. No basic amenity kit (like blinds, socks and toothbush) was provided in the flight like Emirates Certain sections of the Abu Dhabi airport are disappointing. Bathrooms in that particular section of the airport were really dirty and broken. Also travelling by bus to the airplane is not desired for such a major airline home airport. I read somewhere that airport is going to go through major renovation in 2019, so I hope it will become as good as Dubai airport"
Pros: "The food quality was good but they repeated the same food when we started & before landing. Kids usually won;t like eating same food again."
Cons: "The food was not good and our flight attendant was not attentive. He didn’t make the people in front of us put their seats back up for landing. There were no blankets when we requested one."
Cons: "On the dreamliner flights they have tried to cram a ton of seats in so if your over 5'8 you'll be very cramped with your knees under the seats and a strange headrest jammed I to your shoulder. I fly about 20 or 30k miles a year in economy and this is easily the most uncomfortably designed seat I've been in. More over the staff was incredibly dismissive and rude to all I witnessed then keep a older woman waiting for 45 mins for water and then dismiss her when she asked a second time. The check in staff was no better."
Cons: "Seat was too tight. No foot rest"
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Horrible food and beverage service as mentioned above"
Pros: "Not disturbed when i wanted to sleep crew was efficient"
Cons: "Very long flight Rice with every meal was boring , meals were infrequent for a 14 hr flight"
Cons: "They only had vegeterian options for the most part even when the expectation is that they would have at least some meat choices. They ran out of the meat options quickly. The crew was very nice though and arranged for a chicken meal at the end"
Pros: "Good media system. Great staff."
Cons: "Bad food. No flying nannies. Layover was long."
Cons: "The Food is bad."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with head rests and neck pillows Good food choice and no wasteage with plastic cutlery or portion sizes"
Pros: "Awesome service, smooth flight , great staff. Very spacious"
Cons: "My luggage got damaged, but it's being taken care of."
Pros: "Economy class is okay in terms of space set-up. The US immigration organization and process in Abu Dhabi is perfect. We save a lot of time when landing in Dulles airport (Washington DC)"
Cons: "I was surprised by the crew attitude; almost arrogant! First bad experience of this kind travelling with an airline from the Gulf :-("
Pros: "Service is excellent, seats are comfortable, food is tasty and the entertainment system is top class. To add to all of this the Crew is really friendly and helpful."
Cons: "On the flight to and from Abu Dhabi from DC, both planes had a mechanical problem with the toilet seats. The seats would not stay up, so they would come crashing down onto your spine as you were seated, which was painful. The only way to avoid this was to hold it back as you sat, which required you to twist around. This whole experience was uncomfortable and unsanitary. On the Abu Dhabi to DC flight, the toilet was self-flushing, as well. Except that it also malfunctioned and flushed every time before I stood up. This was an unnerving experience."
Pros: "I didn't like baggage handling. Took too long (over 1 hour 15 mins) to get bags onto conveyor belt."
Pros: "Timing was good, crew was friendly, flight was delayed but made up most of it on the way. Food wasn't anything extraordinary but still worlds better than American carriers."
Cons: "Soo cramped on the Dreamliner. Would not recommend for a short flight let alone the 15 hour torture chamber I was stuck on."
Pros: "The food was pretty good for airline meals. We really made good use of the entertainment system which had many great movies and a kids interactive touchscreen. This entertainment system made the flight! Boarding was quick and easy and the ammenty packagfes (eye covers headphones socks ear plugs etc.) and a kids activity book was also great."
Cons: "The bathroom floors were not cleaned often enough and after 10 hours in flight the flight attendants stopped answering the call buttons. Not usually an issue as I like to get up and walk back to request something during long flights but we had children this time and this is harder to do when they are sleeing on you."
Cons: "All but one of the flight attendants, who unfortunately was not in my section, seemed rather terse and far less than kind. Simple requests from fellow passengers were regarded as inconvenient intrusions. The gal in my section would act like she had not heard the requests and then when the passengers would repeat themselves, she would snap, "Please wait till I've finished my service." She rarely would make eye contact with anyone while doing, "her service" and acted like it was a major inconvenience. It was a long flight but the crew on the way to New Delhi on Jet Airways were exceptional and made the flight as pleasant as possible. The Eithad crew lacked this attitude."
Cons: "Plane was not maintained at a comfortable temperature. It was just downright hot! But that was our experience with all our Etihad flights. Planes are not maintained at comfortable temperatures. Food was awful - boiled chicken taste While handing out sandwiches and drinks stewardess just gave my husband whatever I asked for without checking with him. Many times he was overlooked by the stewardesses on either side as he was in a middle seat. I did not see a single onboard crew crack a smile, robotic service. Not impressed with my first Etihad experience."
Cons: "There was a chicken sandwich offered in the middle of the flight that is by far the worst airplane food I've ever had"
Pros: "Crew are usually lovely and helpful with even the most difficult passengers."
Cons: "The food quality is sub par and the entertainment is not adequate compared to other Gulf airlines. I enjoy traveling and did not enjoy the quality of food and actually ran out of movies to watch on a 14 hr flight! I think their focus is on Business and First class. I like this airline so wish it wasn't so."
Cons: "I requested gluten free meals ahead of time, but the request was not fulfilled, making meals tough. The crew were very kind though and worked to make the best out of the situation."
Pros: "Very comfartable"
Cons: "Internet acess is to expensive"
Cons: "I've never heard of double booking an assigned seat! Don't ever fly with etihad, not worth it!!!!!"
Pros: "Food could be better"
Cons: "Didn't like the food"
Pros: "Timeliness of the flight and communication from the flight deck."
Cons: "Particularly on the flight from Abu Dahbi to Washington, D.C., attendants were rude with not only me, but other customers. They were short in their responses, forgot requests multiple times, and didn't make the little bit of extra effort to provide translators in Arabic, ensure an elderly lady next to me had the meal she needed, and secure the food options that we asked for. Our row was told us there were no more chicken meals for example, when we saw an attendant on the other side of the plane offer consistent chicken meals for multiple rows to come. They were just being lazy and didn't even want to ask."
Cons: "Myself and my wife were assigned seats away from each other. Business class seating was not as good as in some other airlines that I have travelled. If husband and wife and family are travelling together on a long flight it should be possible to seat them close to each other"
Pros: "In air service"
Cons: "leg room and boarding delays"
Pros: "Good food Good Service too"
Cons: "Think improving better service in rest room Long flight - magazines on demand to suit each national - no idea about its practicability"
Cons: "No dedicated line for First @ TSA Pre-Clearance at Abu Dhabi. This means you have to leave the lounge hours earlier than otherwise incase there is a massive line @ TSA."
Pros: "crew very friendly....always ready to serve"
Cons: "seats too uncomfortable......leg spacing too tight.....person sitting at window wanted to go to restroom or just wanted to gets up ....everyone from the row.....gets disturb."
Pros: "The plane was spacious with great features. The crew was friendly and helpful"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable. Food was ok, but could be improved in variety."
Cons: "Boarding process, slow and long - I have seen other airlines do it much faster. Crew were friendly, but lots of confusion among crew members. Entertainment was horrible - need new and latest movies. The latest movies available were months old. This makes the flight time feel a lot longer than it is."
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "Food is not great. Coffee and tea service is bad. Coffee is very cold. They are rVery picky about cabin luggage. If if .000001 lbs are more they want us to take small item for example a pen from the bag. Due to this itself I do not want travel in future.ude if u ask something."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The food from Bangalore - Abudhabi was worst...Also I pre selected Veg meals almost 4-5 months ahead of my trip,however the crew said he can't guarantee serving it..and the quality was poor."
Pros: "All the flight attendants were professional and courteous. I would like to thank the staff particularly on my return journey who were very courteous and professional."
Cons: "Vegetarian food. The airlines need to differentiate clearly between regular vegetarian Vs special vegetarian meals. Special vegetarian meal is tasteless and has nothing in it. Also, the food portions are small and it wouldn't hurt the business if they include a decent snack in between the meals. Food wise, its a lean mean cuisine."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Staff was fantastic, bathrooms kept very clean & food was good."
Cons: "Space for leg room in economy seats. Most international flights for economy have more room."
