More monitoring of passengers wearing musks. Some passengers had their musks off and flights attendants didn’t enforce. That was disappointing

Service excellence as always

I love Qatar Airways.Thanks to all the people who serve the airline

The airport staff of Qatar airlines was UNFRIENDLY and UNHELPFUL. They all acted like we were bothering them. They gave no help in moving from one station to another. In general they gave an extremely bad first impression of Qatar airlines!!

Excellent

Pros: "No"
Cons: "respect"
Pros: "attentive crew. comfortable seating. good food options"
Cons: "The lounge is a bit far from the departure gate, so I waited with regular economy class travelers. It would have been nice to have had a closer dedicated area for business class."
Pros: "crew was so kind and lovely with our daughter"
Cons: "food was fairly rough from Doha and the wine options in economy on all flights were terrible"
Pros: "Because I was in the bulkhead seat - it was good."
Cons: "My first flight arrived 30 min late which meant that my 50-minute layover was tight. But instead of holding the next plane for us, they forced us to re-book on a flight leaving 14 hours later! I was not ok with this so I pushed the issue and they put me on the flight leaving 6hrs later. :-((((("
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "I had a problem with the seat cushion. Not comfy enough."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "The food didn’t necessarily agree with me but it tasted good and there was plenty of it."
Pros: "Excellent service. Very comfortable business class seat. Arrived early"
Cons: "Boarding & disembarking was via bus & stairs."
Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Everything thing is fine"
Pros: "The Crew was amazing. The Seat were the best Selling point fort business class"
Cons: "More space for the arm rest ans legs space"
Cons: "At Mumbai airport, during check-in I was told that my carry on bag plus personal item together should weigh not more than 7kgs!! I have never had any airline actually weigh my personal item (laptop backpack) before this journey. Eventually I ended up stuffing my check-in bags with everything I was carrying in my carry on bag before I was allowed to check in. The weird thing is, I was never told about this rule on my journey from the US to India."
Cons: "It was delayed 3hrs but no regret from staff. Doha to staff very bad and arrogant"
Pros: "The crew were nice and very helpful. Vegeterian meal was great"
Cons: "It was cold almost for everyone and everyone used blanket, some people asked for second blanket."
Pros: "On time Very convenient price compared to other airlines"
Pros: "Food was good, staff was excellent."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "Food , Crew , Plane, Cleanliness and Entertainment were good."
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that I was never notified through email that the flight was from a different , newer airport in Islamabad. Originally my booking was from Benazir International Airport Islamabad but on the day of flight when I went to that airport , it was totally closed for operations and flights. And I asked people in the street e.g taxi drivers etc which airport my flight could be from. They told me that a new airport in Islamabad had become operational and my flight could be from the newer airport. I went to the new airport but I was late for boarding because my time was wasted in going first to the Benazir International Airport and then rerouting to the new airport. Fortunately the fight from Islamabad to Qatar was delayed and I was able to make it to the boarding and flew from Islamabad to Doha."
Cons: "Even though we landed in Doha before our connection left ( barely-20 min)on Qatar airways, they would not hold the connecting flight for the 7 of us who were connecting. This was extremely disappointing as we then lost a full 8 hours of our first day arrival. If they schedule you for a 45 minute connecting flight, I suggest you book a later one. Our flight from NYC left on time but was 20 min late landing. Their only compensation to us all was use of the airport lounge in Doha ( quite nice with free food wine and showers, but would rather have had the extra day in Bali."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. And the food choices were good."
Pros: "I haven't flown with Qatar for several years, but my memories of an exceptional experience were replicated. Fantastic modern aircraft, brilliant crew and great food."
Cons: "Only one minor gripe, the passengers seated behind me talked incessantly, making my attempts to sleep impossible. I asked if there were any ear plugs available, but none could be found. My own fault, I should have packed my own."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "I was put on another flight eight hours later even though I had already checked in. I actually traveled with Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Pros: "Heavenly for an airplane ride!"
Pros: "The crew service"
Cons: "The cost of internet access"
Pros: "It was booked for my elderly parents and they were very pleased by the service they received."
Pros: "I havn't flown a lot of international flights, but Qatar Airways is now my favorite"
Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."
Pros: "Completely satisfied. Excellent all the way!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Thank You."
Pros: "Ease of boarding process,"
Cons: "Food while going to Hyderabad. Unfortunately, we have ordered Lacto Veg thinking they will provide milk etc. That food was horrible"
Pros: "My steward, Gabriel, provided service that exceeded my expectations. He made the long haul more bearable."
Cons: "The shape of the seats was not optimal for my height/size."
Pros: "the flight was comfortable"
Pros: "Everythinగ"
Cons: "Nil"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "One of bags was missing and I came to know this only after waiting until the last bag. The staff knew that my bag did not make it out of Doha. It would have been nice if I was informed as soon as I landed so I did not have to wait for an hour unnecessarily. And the paperwork to report the missing baggage was totally Chaotic. Whoever barged to the counter and was aggressive got priority and taking down the details and giving us a receipt. This is probably my 5 or 6 flight in Qatar and it seems that you guys are slipping up as Emirates had done. Hope you don't."
Cons: "Norhing really"
Pros: "Much of your service is excellent!"
Cons: "Although the very well crafted advertisement for Qatar at beginning of watching each movie is partially beautiful, I personally find it a bit offensive as a woman the clear emphasis on "my son, this watch and all that is mine will be yours", my daughter, your highest moment will be to get married. My disturbance with what I experience as sexist, worsened each time I saw this. Luckily I learnt how to fast forward, but the sexism of this left me disturbed. so although in reality much of your service is excellent, this advertising of a sexist world view was too disturbing to ignore. I hope my comments are helpful to you in considering that many women in the world now expect their fathers to consider passing on a fair share of their resources to their daughters as well."
Pros: "Crew was great; plenty of space to stretch out"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "We sat on tarmac for 3 hours with no explanation from the crew or cockpit. Because of the delay, everyone missed their connections in Doha. The crews could have jet a couple of the flights a little longer for people to make their flights. The desk was filled with people and was very chaotic. There were so many people working there but no one could give you a straight answer so it was very confusing. I had to wait at the airport for 4 hours to get it sorted and was given a food voucher for $50 for the entire stop over. I asked about a flight voucher and they laughed and said they didn't do that even though they were the ones at fault. The crew was nice and the food was good but I will never fly quatar airways unless they remedy the situation."
Pros: "The airplane was spacious."
Cons: "The omelette was too tough."
Pros: "2 bag checks allowed and being giv n th option to check in an additional carry on at no charge."
Cons: "Boarding was hodge-podge. Seats are way too close together for a long haul...person's tray in front of me was in my face the entire trip and she didn't bother inclining throughout so had to eat my meals like a contortionist. Cramming more seats into a finite space seems to be what all airlines are doing these days. This of us whom are above average in height are forced to insure a more painful and uncomfortable flight as a result."
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!!!!"
Cons: "is it true that Qatar treats the passengers coming to US differently than the passengers going out of US. I noticed that the crew was giving menu cards for dinner when coming back to US. Food quality is very ad, quantity is small also. same story with snacks. they don't offer enough food overall. The crew should be trained better for int'l passengers."
Cons: "No good movies on the flight. The crew hardly interacts. The food sucks and they served sausage to me even though I was a vegetarian and they said they didn't have anything else. The headrest kept falling off ."
Pros: "it makes my trip wonderful. Thanks quatar airlines and kayak"
Cons: "Not allowing water on the flight made it extremely long and unbearable."
Pros: "I loved the kind and friendly staff of Qatar airline. They were very organized and helpful. We missed our flight due to delays but they took great car of us and guided us through the process."
Cons: "They seats were too close. The person in front had his seat back and was practically in my lap. Annoying."
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "I was not permitted to check in and board because the ticket agent had incorrect information and refused to listen to my written proof of her incorrect decision."
Pros: "High end crew"
Cons: "Food and spaces between seats"
Cons: "It would be great if you could serve warm food instead of bread."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Was perfect"
Pros: "Seat was ok."
Cons: "Better food! Food sucked this time around"
Pros: "Crew was not very frindly and the Turkish airlines staff at Istanbul are not at all friendly and so rude. I will never recommend Turkish airlines to anyone."
Cons: "Too tight seatings"
Pros: "Yes everything was perfect"
Cons: "Everything including food was excellent"
Pros: "Slept in the flight for 5 hours and my toddler did too , was quiet in the cabin and this is the only good thing"
Cons: "Boarding they kept me and couple othee guys like seeiously 5 staff people at the gate doing nothing and you ask anyone please help i want to tag my stroller so i can board ans go on boarding line, no response only one peeson will work. the rest of the four are completely useless, i eventually told my wife to board with our daughter so they have the time to sit and prepare food etc and pull things they will need durimg flight Andi waited on this last staff person at the gate until she gave me the tag to the stroller and boarded later First meal they said either fish or beaf meat balls, i like both and no problem, but the crew said no fish anymore so you you will take beaf, OK Luckily neither my wife or daughter ate it Because after I ate it, 3-4 hrs later, I had the worst stomach pain ever and was in pain the rest of the flight and the remaining of the day after we landed FYI I ate just crackers and like all bread sandwiches all morning and was completely fine- just the beaf meat balls either not cocked or remains of non good beaf and other things- horrible food"
Pros: "The food and the selection of movies"
Cons: "Nothingn"
Pros: "customer service was great and the food :)"
Pros: "Every thing normal and in time"
Cons: "Food was everage"
Pros: "Friendly crew, boarding on time, leaving and arriving on time, well maintained planes, clean."
Cons: "The seats were so close to each-other that you can't even get in or out without a big effort. I am not a large person, but I am pretty tall. Fro someone over 6 feet tall, the seats are like a torture chamber."
Cons: "To long of a flight"
Pros: "Turkish Airlines offers an experience much better than your average two-hour plane hop in the U.S. There was a full meal served, staff were kind and didn’t try to sell a bunch of extra stuff to you, and there were many choices for in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the children on the plane were really poorly behaved and loud. In addition, the flight was delayed by 1 full hour and when we arrived in Vienna our luggage (and the luggage of many other passengers) had not been sent with us. We waited in line for luggage for 30 minutes, then another line for at least 30 more minutes to report the missing bag, and we were then told that it wouldn’t arrive for another day and would be delivered to us within a 3 hour window in the middle of the day. This was essentially an entire night and day lost to a mishap that the airline didn’t even notify us of when we landed. Pretty frustrating."
Pros: "Great entertainment, good seat comfort (even in economy seat), good food and friendly service."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. I was surprised at the amount of food and drink service. It was nice to have on such a long flight. Seats were comfortable and I was able to sleep well which is not easy for me on planes."
Pros: "Route"
Cons: "crew was so helpful"
Pros: "Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. They fed us and gave us blankets and pillows and slippers. They were lots of movie and tv choices. It was a very pleasant experience."
Pros: "I bought a ticket for three persons: my wife, my daughtet and me. I am Nigerian, my daughter American, and my wife's Turkish. However, because of the diplomatic row between Turkey and the U.S., my daughter was refused entry into Turkey. Turkish airlines' policy was to refund the ticket of any American caught in this row. They said they will refund my one month old daughter's ticket. However, my wife and i will not receive a refund. We bought the three tickets together. Our ticket numbers ended in 235...51, 235...52, and 235...53. However, they will not refund our whole money by cancelling the ticket but only that of my daughter. So this is the question: Does Turkish airline want me to leave my one-month old baby in the U.S. and tavel with my wife to Turkey? What kind of parents will we be if we were to abandon our daughter to take a trip to Turkey. Even, the people in Turkish airlines will judge us evil parents, yet that was exactly the only option they gave us. Lose your daughter or lose your ticket money. They will not even just change our iternary or give us another destination we suggested without penalties which are almost 3/4 of our initial ticket price. They just made away with our money. You cannot say, 'We are cancelling tickets for American citizens' but make no exception for parents of infant citizens. This is the height of criminality. So, me and my family couldn't take the flight and lost $1500. We had to buy another ticket by airfloat to get to Georgia. But Turkish airlines refused to even contact us on the refund for my daughter. A truly criminal enterprise."
Cons: "They had a vague refund policy for Americans, forgetting that American infants can also have none-American parents who are as much victims in this as the American infant. For them to be myopic and keep repeating talking points of their refund policy is unfortunate to say the least."
Pros: "Good service everywhere"
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "Asian vegeterian meal was bland , I had a big piece of brocolli in my meal as oppose to curry , did get bread in my meal . Entertainment options were not alot esp new movies ."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Staff friendly. Great selection of movies."
Cons: "Dinner was really poor experience. However I guess it is a matter of taste (pun intended)."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Comfort, service, food"
Pros: "Pleasant, very standard flight, arrived safely."
Cons: "Flight time left origin very very late at night, would suggest to leave earlier in the day"
Pros: "Great crew and food"
Cons: "Seat comfort/space"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Very professional. Also the transfer in Istanbul was very easy."
Cons: "I felt cramped in my seat. the footrest, rather than helping, got in the way of extending my legs."
Pros: "The entertainment and accommodations were superb. I appreciate all the things they think of to make you comfortable. The seats were a bit hard but they reclined nicely."
Cons: "The first delay during my trip was due to an emergency but my layover was delayed again. I'm not sure if this is an outlier event or if this is a pattern."
Pros: "Great choice of entertainment, food relatively good for plane food."
Cons: "Crew was fine but not as friendly or cheerful as I'm used to flight attendants being. The leg room was pretty poor on this particular plane, there wasn't even space to put a small bag under the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Crew members were nice People were good at check in as well"
Cons: "It was ok but room to improve everywhere It's matter of process where it may help to choose international standards rather than follow ones preferences"
Cons: "Internet"
Pros: "It was a full plain but overall ok I will take this flight again"
Pros: "Food, service, comfort packs."
Cons: "Not much Very decent efficient operation Always room for improvement"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Rich food and beverages menu. Rich and updated entertainment on board. Crew is polite and service is good."
Cons: "When boarding no air ventilation on board, so air is hot like sauna. After departure air condition is excellent."
Cons: "not all the crew spoke English"
Pros: "It was nice and easy trip to USA and back home to Moldova. Crew was attentive and helpful. Food was good and plenty to drink."
Cons: "It was red eye, and the light in the cabin did not turn off for a long time."
Pros: "We travel and used different airlines but Turkish airlines is one of the best."
Pros: "The flight was good. The food was good and the air hostesses were courteous. There was fair leg space in the economy flight and entertainment was also good. However, the negatives far outweighed these positives."
Cons: "The layover arrangements were a shame. No proper accommodation was provided despite having over a 24 hour wait period. I along with other passengers were stacked in dorm style non barricaded rooms in 1.5ft wide beds like animals. It was in total poor taste. Half the Turkish Air employees I approached at the Airport for help with directions and clarifications were dismissive to the point of being obnoxious. Walking through the airport, all I could think was what a disorganized and hard to navigate airport it was. It was an unpleasant experience and I will never recommend Turkish Airline to anyone. It was my first Turkish air, and it will be my last."
Pros: "The Air hostess are aware of what they are doing, they can manage extra requests from different people."
Cons: "The workers at the boarding they don't have good language to new people they think every one should know every thing about Turkish schedule and other information, It is a little bit strange to have no where to sit at Instambul Airport while having wheel chairs for sick people after bringing them at the waiting place where do you think they will be sitting."
Pros: "Loved the seating space"
Cons: "I was traveling with my sister and the lady's who gave us our boarding pass had trouble with our tickets and sat us separate."
Pros: "Flight was great overall, but the one piece that I'm hoping is not a repeat is the overly frequent reminders, especially since this was an overnight flight."
Cons: "Too many redundant and unnecessary announcements"
Pros: "I liked the food"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable, the entertainment screen haven't changed since 2001 i guess; very bad quality, and it broke down at the middle of flight."
Pros: "The overall experience was very good. We had a 19 hour lay-over, pleasantly spent in a new, very comfortable hotel to which we were shuttled and from which we were returned to the airport the next morning -- hotel/shuttle comped, as was the impressive breakfast at the hotel. We will definitely fly TurkishAir again. The staff was excellent and the in-flight entertainment system was wonderful."
Cons: "The cabin was very warm during the flight. No personal air vents to help cool down. That is my only small complaint."
Pros: "The food was acceptable for a person from the US. The seats were adequately comfortable but seats were shorter than our Istanbul to Dhaka flight."
Cons: "The leg room was too short for a six foot tall American."
Pros: "Hot towel, full beverage menu, free slipper toothbrush eye mask etc. large tv screens with a lot of movies etc. also the captain didn't come on every hour during a red eye flight to say something I didn't need to hear about which has happened on the last few longer flights I have been on. New interior of plane."
Cons: "Food wasn't great, seats were closer together than some other airlines."
Cons: "Yolculuk genel anlamda iyiydi fakat bagajim kayboldu. Thy gibi bir kurumda bagaj kaybolmasini anlayamiyorum. Tum guvenimi kaybettim."
Pros: "The price and timings"
Cons: "Cabin crew not accommodating as would not hang my coat which I never had any problem traveling internationally. Toilets very small and smelly. Toilet pack was good as they included slippers."
Pros: "nice large screens for entertainment."
Cons: "the cabin temperature was too warm making the flight rather uncomfortable."

This was the Delta Shuttle flight (operated by Republic Airways (therefore not a mainline flight)). The crew was exceptional in expediting boarding, accommodating customers, and politely dealing with “difficult” passengers (don’t be that passenger - it’s a 40 minute flight). Great flight overall.

It was hard to hear the PA announcements for boarding. Maybe also post the info on the screen? Or allow the attendant to pull down his mask when speaking into the PA system?

Lots of delays. Armrests are not big enough for two people.

Pros: "Seat very v=comfotable"
Pros: "Plane was new and equipped"
Cons: "In first class we had beef jerky for breakfast"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Great crew."
Pros: "Don’t go overboard"
Cons: "Cleaner"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good for now"
Cons: "Top carrier"
Pros: "Well organized and easy to check in."
Cons: "No"
Cons: "Nothing, really. Airlines unfortunately can’t make people patient or polite, & I can’t afford a private jet, so I’ll have to settle for an eye roll or twelve."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "The inoperative TV screens should be repaired."
Pros: "Was boarded promptly"
Cons: "During this trip all my flights got delayed and I was told that I could not get a hotel room and had to pay for myself."
Pros: "Entertainment. Flight attendants. Food"
Cons: "PROBLEM WITH LOCATING BAGGAGE CAROUSEL. GIVEN WRKNG LICATION ."
Pros: "The crew was polite and pleasant unlike the crew from KC to Boston."
Cons: "Telling us to check bags before we get to our seat and find out there is no more room."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Pilots were attentive to kids and answered questions. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful."
Cons: "They didn't have some of their food options (and they apologized for that up front), but then ran out of the others by the time they got half way through the plane. That was tough for a five hour flight that went through dinner time."
Pros: "Fine crew. Fine entertainment."
Cons: "Clumsy boarding process. After a 2.5 hour delay on tarmac before takeoff there was almost no food on board for a 6-hour flight"
Cons: "The flight attendants were quick with the pick up of drinks. I had only been served my drink for five minutes and they were already coming around to pick up trash."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "We reserved exit row seats and when they changed the plane they gave our exit row seats to others."
Pros: "Ryan was great! Very nice and professional, would love to see him on a future flight."
Pros: "Smooth flights and in time. Everyone is so nice. True professionals"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "An hour and a half late, terrible communication about scheduling"
Pros: "I was in Comfort+ so there was a bit more leg room than standard economy"
Cons: "Even with Comfort+ things are tight."
Pros: "Good flight in air"
Cons: "Even the baggage was quick (highly unusual for Columbus, Ohio)! Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent. The plane was comfortable, as usual. The choice of snacks is great!"
Cons: "Actually, everything was fine. No need for improvement .... even the airfare was great!"
Cons: "Delays due to Democrats not making deal"
Pros: "Good service this morning"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "they let someone get off the plane and it delayed the flight an hour and a half which caused me to miss my connecting flight. I now have to sit for a 5 hour layover"
Pros: "The selection of movies was great."
Cons: "The food. No herbal or decaf tea. No decaf coffee. The regular coffee and regular tea was awful; I like strong coffee and tea but on the plane it was terrible. The was not a vegan option for dinner. I thought the pilot announced complimentary beverages; soft drinks, coffee, tea & alcohol. Perhaps I was mistaken or maybe he was. I like the seats (reclining back with the seat bottom moving forward) except the seat bottom is entirely too hard and was bad for my back. The hot towels are a welcome touch. The ride was smooth, the pilots did a very good job."
Pros: "Everything went great. Flight left a little late but was fine and only arrived a little late. I like the side wings on head rests really help."
Cons: "Seats are always hard on long flights."
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays... first class ticket from BOS to MSP got me a 6 hour delay and a middle seat in econ main cabin at the back of the plane. Delta you suck!"
Pros: "Got to London on-time (early, actually) and safely. The in flight meal was okay. The leg room in comfort plus was great, the mobile app was awesome, and the staff (check-in, gate, cabin and flight deck) were professional and friendly all around."
Cons: "The leg room was great, but as a broad-shouldered guy, the width of the seat was miserable. Unfortunately, the Delta 767 doesn't offer any upgrade for a wider seat beyond Delta One, and my employer won't spring for that. Too bad there isn't a premium economy option. Also, the entertainment unit in the seat next to mine malfunctioned, which you wouldn't think would impact me that much except that because it was "seeing" touches randomly throughout the flight, the screen would turn on, off, brighter, dimmer, play random stuff, and just generally be as annoying as possible to everyone nearby throughout an overnight flight."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours- was just sitting in the plane for couple hours before it took away"
Pros: "Generally, Delta is cleaner, their terminals are much nicer, and the experience is better than one with American and United. I wish they had more direct flights to my normal destinations--I'd fly with them more!"
Cons: "Someone unloaded a lot of crumbs on my tray table and they all got smooshed on the back of the seat between the tray table and chair. It was pretty nasty. (The tray table was clean, the back of the seat wasn't. Please be nasty.)"
Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"
Pros: "Leg room and seats are very tight and I'm a small person."
Cons: "Coach class is very crowded."
Pros: "Cabin crew and captain were great."
Cons: "Don't like how you don't get your seat assignment until you get to the gate. I was given the window seat in the very last row for a 6 hour flight, quite uncomfortable. I could've booked another airline for a similar price and picked the seat i wanted at booking. They ran out of food choices by the time they got to the last row, so we were given whatever was left. Delayed because one of the bathroom doors wasn't working, 30 min later still wasn't fixed and ultimately they decided to go without it."
Pros: "Staff smooth flight great landing and free movies"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Your entertainment system is fabulous!"
Cons: "We purchased a direct flight from Boston to Tampa. We paid extra for the convenience of a direct flight Our flight was changed without notification to a connecting flight that was leaving 10 minutes earlier and arriving 2 hours later. Due to malfunction with the kiosk and not a sufficient amount of agents at check in, we missed our flight by 4 minutes. The gate agent seemed to enjoy telling us, with our 10 month old baby, that we were too late. Our baggage, including car seat, had been loaded on the plane. We were reassigned to a flight the following morning. We missed a full day with family, had to travel back home without a car seat and return to the airport the following day. I was shocked and disappointed that not single Delta agent was accommodating or remotely helpful while we were at the airport. I've never had a problem with Delta before. We travel on regularly and would like to continue using Delta. I would like a voucher for my next Delta trip."
Pros: "gate staff were great"
Cons: "plane cabin staff looked overworked"
Cons: "My wife was told she could not board our flight from Boston to Paris because her passport was expired, even though it was not expired. We were told that in Europe passports cannot expire within 3 months of your departure. However, Delta never let us know about this rule until we literally were boarding the plane. How they could not make us aware of this until we were boarding the airplane is unbelievable and unacceptable. This has ruined our vacation which has been in planning for the last six months."
Pros: "Complimentary snack mini-meal. Early departure and arrival. Availability of extra seat and elbow room. Free movies."
Cons: "Entertainment screen would not tilt to comfortable angle when passenger in front of me reclined his seat, and the screen/system stopped functioning properly near end of flight."
Cons: "We sat on-board the aircraft, at the gate, for almost 2 hours due to a weather delay. During this time, we were not offered refreshments, nor were we offered any type of "compensatory benefit" for our delay (e.g., free Wi-Fi, vouchers good toward a future flight (a $30 voucher per passenger would seem appropriate), additional SkyMiles (3000-5000 SkyMiles would seem appropriate), etc.)."
Pros: "The only positive of this leg is that it was less infuriating than the flight from RDU to Boston"
Cons: "Delta's partnership with Go Jet seriously compromises the legacy carrier's reputation. I am a Delta fan - although flexible enough to use other choices when necessary. I will no longer fly a Go Jet operated leg when other choices are available. For my trips to Boston, that means Jet Blue. Sorry Delta. I'll see you back on a true Delta route."
Pros: "Everything was just right"
Pros: "Arrived early, nice bus. Class lounges"
Cons: "Friendly flight attendants, more comfort . Better food. Faster service"
Pros: "Great crew who were prompt with service and friendly!!"
Cons: "Notjing"
Cons: "All of our luggage was lost and did not arrive in Prague"
Cons: "Tv screen didn’t work very well. ( picture was fine but the function buttons were terrible)."
Pros: "Fabulous service"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Seat very short & im only 5’2” and it was short even for my legs. Too short for anyone average Otherwise ok"
Cons: "N"
Cons: "Light was delayed 3 hours. I had to wait 9 hours for a next plane to my final destination"
Pros: "The crew on the jet were fine. The entertainment was good too."
Cons: "The crew at checkin we’re pretty awful. They were rude and not very helpful. I witnessed 3 customers have poor service in front of me and then they weren’t helpful with me either. The plane changed and I had paid for a seat and I lost my money and the seat I paid for and was never notified."
Pros: "I have never been treated so poorly by counter people in my life!"
Cons: "After 2 hour delay, the flight was cancelled. NO ONE helped to find another flight. After waiting in line for 2 hours, the ticket agent handed me a card and said I had to call the 800 number. The person on the phone said I had to talk to ticket agent to go standby on a flight to Munich and the ticket agent told me I had to call. I was caught in a loop and no one helped. Then when it became apparent I wasn't getting out that night I was informed that there were no hotel vouchers and I would have to find my own hotel! After searching for an hour for a hotel (all were sold out in Boston) I called a friend who lives outside of Boston. No one gave me a taxi voucher because it was not to a hotel. LUFTHANSA customer service is the WORST!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The flight was nice and the people were friendly and good"
Cons: "My stroller’s leg got broken and I did report"
Pros: "Lots of space....very comfortable seat."
Cons: "Can’t think of a thing."
Cons: "I wish service could be a bit faster. Due to turbulence our second meal could not be served at all. Not sure why the passengers were not served as they were seated. Some passengers were served, some didn’t get served at all. It was a long journey coming from Boston. Imagine arriving home after 1 am without any food."
Cons: "Very little leg room, when perso in front of you reclines it’s impossible to open table"
Pros: "The flight was fine. However, because of a potential snow storm in Boston for 3/21, the flight with Lufthansa was cancelled. We were switched to TAP Portugal for the 22nd. When we arrived at Logan airport, we were told by TAP the flight is overbooked, but there is a chance we will get seats. We did get seats at the last moment, always kept abreast by TAP representatives. The flight was a non-stop flight, leaving at 6 PM arriving by 6 AM, far better than the connections with changes the day before."
Cons: "Waited an hour after boarding in the plane."
Cons: "We flew economy so didn’t expect much, but these seats were VERY narrow. I usually will tuck my legs up on the seat to sleep. No way, this seat was simply hip width. No room to shift from side to side."
Pros: "Beautiful new plane — supremely clean"
Pros: "On time, punctual and efficient. Just what I would expect from Lufthansa."
Cons: "This was a 747, but in economy they've configured it with newer 10 across rows like they do on the new Dreamliner, which I hate. These new seats are much narrower in width (not ideal, but fair enough, the airline wants to maximise capacity) and much harder to sit on for a long haul flight (much less ideal, after a couple hours, the seats were just plain uncomfortable, by the end of the flight really unbearable). The food (pasta) was not particularly good and not to the usual standard I expected for Lufthansa. Staff were efficient, but not particularly friendly. To be honest, I've had better flights in terms of comfort on the likes of Ryanair and Thomas Cook."
Pros: "It was great."
Cons: "As I checked in for the flight around 10 am on Saturday my ck in was "finished" because our pass ports were due to expire in April. We were not allowed to board our flight and the passport office is closed until Tuesday. As a result we lost $700 dollars to the hotel booked and Lufthansa may not reimburse us for the flights which were over $2000. Absolutely horrible service, no help. Negligent in informing us rapier when i chose seats for the flight. The flight was also delayed 2 and a half hours. We now have no vacation for which we paid $3000."
Pros: "Like food and stagf"
Pros: "Comfortable seats; food was adequate"
Cons: "Seats seem a bit close to one another, with little knee room"
Pros: "Indian meal and movie options"
Pros: "Very smooth flight, great service. Chose the first row in economy which had tons of legroom. Connected in Frankfurt, very easy connection."
Cons: "Passport control in Frankfurt doesn't open until 530a so we all had to wait in line. The TV monitor was not as sensitive and would fall easily downwards sometimes."
Pros: "The food was decent but poorly presented with very limited options for those with food allergies, particularly to dairy."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and very stiff, neither the parents or staff made an effort to give guests a break from the constantly screaming babies. I had two small children kicking the back f my seat for the duration of our six and half hour flight. My largest complaint is that I was unable to sleep a wink on the overnight flight due to the excessive heat in the plane. In my experience decent airlines provide their guests with air conditioning so that they can breathe and rest easy. I was absolutely miserable thanks to the heat."
Pros: "Brand New plane. Great German entertainment. Crew were very efficient but didn't show up with drinks as often as in the past but still more often than other airlines. Overall a wonderful experience."
Cons: "Took two hours to start dinner service without a reason. Turbulences and a passenger with long legs were impeading my sleep but not Lufthansa's fault."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked. The walk was too long at Frankfurt"
Cons: "My granddaughter of 3 years had painful ear block and the crew was so unfriendly about it unlike other airlines that try to offer remedies."
Pros: "My booking and ticketing went very well Lufthansa was great"
Pros: "No delay and the landing is smooth"
Cons: "More variety in entertainment would be good;"
Cons: "Crew's attitude is awful, they need to learn how to provide service."
Cons: "Boarding seamed inefficient. Loaded handicap onto separate vehicle in middle of us boarding, so it stopped our process. My seat didn't recline even though it had a button. No in flight entertainment?! At all... Got a crappy breakfast omelet that i didn't want to put in my stomach."
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised by the leg room for economy class--albeit I'm of small stature"
Cons: "Being on-board at the gate for an hour, due to a technical issue not meeting flight captain expectation"
Pros: "Comfortable seating so it was easy to sleep. It was a night flight and I spent most of this flight, eating dinner and breakfast and sleeping. Great cabin attendants who accommodated every need without being requested."
Cons: "The check in and boarding at Logan airport was horrendous. The gate attendants didn't provide the same quality of attention and information that the inflight crew did."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was good and the crew was very nice, my flight was early and the boarding was very efficient. The meal was simple but good and warm. The plane was very new and clean."
Cons: "The seats could've been wider with more leg room, I ended up slightly squished for my flight which was from Boston to Munich"
Pros: "The check-in and boarding was fast, easy, great. The crew was very nice and good. The overall service was excellent."
Cons: "the food was on medium level compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Crew nice. Clean aircraft. Flight smooth, arrived to destination 40 min earlier. Nothing to complain except I wish there was more room for legs . Food okish, coffee / tea were good, tomato juice not good, did not try the wines. Biggest disappointed was the breakfast in quality only carbs : muffin, granola bar and tiny fruit salad where most of the fruit was frozen. But these are small things, overall a very good flight, I will definitely fly again with them. I watched a couple of movies released this year that I wanted to see. Good job Lufthansa!"
Pros: "We paid for extra legroom, if not the trip would've been very uncomfortable"
Cons: "I thought the food was very bad"
Pros: "Uneventful."
Cons: "And packed in like rolled up silk undergarments."
Pros: "Lufthansa took great care of my two cats transport abroad. They went overboard in my estimation and along with partner Adria Airways I couldn't be more grateful,and so are the kitties, for the wonderful care. ."
Pros: "Dinner was good fairly interesting and wholesome. I appreciated having real silverware, albeit only 3/4 of normal size. But for an 8:35 flight, most people would have already eaten. In contrast, 'breakfast' was a muffin, small cup of sliced fruit, and a granola bar. For a flight leaving at 8:30 pm and arriving at 10 AM, I would think breakfast, not dinner, would get the emphasis. Did get some free wine with dinner."
Cons: "$35 bucks per flight leg to reserve your seat seems rude and harsh. THey don't tell you til AFTER you book the flight that seat selection is extra - spendy extra... Rude."
Pros: "Comfort, choice in movies, leg room, toilets on one level and plenty, staff helpful"
Pros: "Great food, on time arrival"
Cons: "Seats are very tight."
Pros: "The entertainment was terrific for a long flight. Staff was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "To compare with most of the company, you are in the top. I like the fact that the boarding was done well, the crew is efficient, quite, legroom, corridor room, may be the food can be improved. Quite and relaxing flight. I really appreciated."
Pros: "Cabin Crew was very pleasant and supportive of families with children"
Cons: "The seats are designed for individuals who weight less than 100 lbs and no taller than 5'5". Granted, this was an economy seat. However, I should be able to sit in a seat without the seat in front of me literally 6 inches away from my face. I have traveled internationally countless times, but never have experienced such an uncomfortable flight. I will never fly with Lufthansa internationally again.not because of the crew, because their head office insists on squeezing every inch out of their planes without regard for passenger comfort."
Pros: "Very nice flight attendants, the food was good, enough leg space."
Cons: "My entertainment screen kept freezing, which was quite annoying when you are trying to watch a movie."
Pros: "Nice crew, water waiting for me at my seat and other small amenities that made a big difference. Great entertainment system on board."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "I have liked everything in lufthansa there was nothing to complain about thanks lufthansa for your respectful and helpful"
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food variety could be an order improvement add"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Bathrooms could be a little bit cleaner"
Cons: "That if passengers with a original departure of erbil will be blocked for their final log that kayak or royal jordanian dont advertise the flight"
Pros: "Great food options. Super comfy fully reclining to bed seats. Very attentive flight crew."
Cons: "It's minor, but more up to date movies."
Pros: "Crew was good, but only so much you can do on a junk plane"
Cons: "The plane could have been better, a lot better"
Pros: "Super seat"
Cons: "Audio selection"
Cons: "The Royal Jordanian crew gave us a comfortable, enjoyable flight. There is no in-flight entertainment, so take your own or plan to read or sleep."
Cons: "5 hours flight without entertainment, small airplane I. Addition to that my flight from Amman to jeddah was very bad, I will not book with jordanian airlines anymore"
Cons: "Absolutely the worst flight and airport I have ever experienced. I will never travel royal Jordanian ever again!"
Cons: "The attendants only came around 2 times to offer drinks/water on a 12 hour flight. They only offered tea/coffee once. It was not offered after the main meal even. The attendants need to come around with water every few hours on such a long flight."
Pros: "Friendlty crew"
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "Dirty bathrooms!!!!!"
Pros: "Great crew, very comfortable plane. Everything was on time."
Cons: "The vegetarian option was not vegetarian as it contained fish. O'Hare was under construction and signage from the domestic terminal to international terminal was poor."
Pros: "The flight was great. The crew was wonderful as we were traveling with a wheelchair. I will definitely fly Royal Jordanian again."
Pros: "crew was just normal, seat was fine, not comfortable"
Cons: "first flight was 4 hours late, resulting in potential missing connection flight. had to change reservation & arrive super late"
Cons: "We need to be reimbursed for our flights that THEY canceled."
Pros: "Flight timing"
Cons: "Old aircraft, very noisy, old uncomfortable seats, food and entertainment"
Pros: "Seat on the 787 is the best economy seat ever"
Cons: "Movie options more limited than other airlines. Crew were certainly OK - a bit abrupt, but I really don’t need someone fawning over me to be satisfied."
Pros: "food"
Pros: "Crew was helpful"
Cons: "Flight delayed over 1 hour, plane change so my paid seat was no more, screen does not work"
Cons: "my seat was broken"
Pros: "too short to judge, but arrived before schedule."
Cons: "Too short to judge"
Pros: "Everything was excellent. After reading some reviews I was a bit reluctant but every was great on board. Great crew with great food."
Cons: "I didn't like how disorganised the on ground staff was when boarding. Also as a family of 7 we should have sat altogether and not scattered around the aircraft."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Crew exceptionally nice"
Cons: "Tedious security before boarding. Cleanliness could be better."
Pros: "The flight the plane the staff on plane the food the entertainment"
Cons: "waiting lines to get into the gates and passport checks for departure. it was too long and mis-leading since the machines were not working eventually had to go to a manual check (not machine) and almost missed the flight. It's bad management of the Ben Gurion Airport."
Pros: "I upgraded my flight to business class and I enjoyed it."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The plane was modern and clean. The crew were very welcoming and professional, and the food quality was excellent."
Cons: "They had outsourced their checking in to a new company that had no idea how to manage it causing a significant departure delay."
Pros: "Evry thing Time keeping Food Survice"
Cons: "No internet"
Pros: "Bad airport service"
Cons: "Very bad staff"
Cons: "I thought the Crown Lounge in Amman (RJ's hub) was shockingly poor."
Pros: "The plane was new and spacious."
Cons: "Crew served old and cold coffee."
Cons: "Although we were traveling together, the airline seated us separately on both flights. Going from Chicago to Amman I was seated in seat 16A while my husband was placed on the other side of the airplane in seat 17K!! On the ride back, I was in seat 13A and my husband in 30C!!!!! Prior to check in and during check in, I was informed that I was not able to select our seats, and that we would just have to arrange seating ourselves once we were on the plane!! A week prior to leaving Amman my husband called rj and talked to a representative who changed our seats."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The food the service and the flight"
Pros: "Very nice staff expert captains"
Cons: "Food is really bad .."
Pros: "Left on time. Probably overpriced for the length of the flight. Baggage was out promptly."
Pros: "Seats were bigger than normal flights"
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all. Food could've been better."
Cons: "zero entertainment..the worst movies and music mix..not enough food"
Cons: "I pre ordered a kosher meal. It was said to me that someone miscalculated and there were not enough kosher meals. I was left hungry and starved on such a long flight."
Cons: "My daughter and I asked to move to have more room on the flt to change to a different row the flt was not full at all. The crew said they needed the last 2 rows for themselves which I understood until they pulled out all their bedding and lyed down to sleep each taking a full row. I have never seen this befor on my extensive travels. We were only offered fluids to drink 2 times with meals on a 12 hour flt from Jordan to Chicago. I thought this was poor service and not health for the passengers. My meal was the same both times with small amounts and poor quality. I noted it was much better on the way over along with the service. I assisted with a medical emergency on the flt being a emergency room nurse and I did feel the staff was great full I was able to help. I am sorry to say I will choose air France in the future."
Cons: "No transit support in delayed flight."
Pros: "The plane was nice and clean."
Cons: "The food wasn't that good for me, the dessert was good. Not all the crew members were friendly with the passengers."
