Broker not equipped to be of any help."

She was very professional , serving customer with the best she can. Always smiles. I feel good whenever I see her walks by, smile and very professional When the meal was serve but they only had one dish to choose instead of two ( I guess that day Chicken Masala dish was high on demand so there are only Japanese dish left) she said we are so sorry with a very sincere gesture , I chose Japanese food because I like Japanese food anyway , she politely thanks me for my choice and later bring a bag of small mix snack for me and said thank you for being flexible . Later on, when we getting off the airplane she even helped me to stroll my carry on out to the airplane because I was carry too many stuffs with me and my daughter being so tired of the long flight so I have to comforted my daughter .

Pros: "The crew was very nice and pleasant. They were very accommodating as well."
Cons: "For my entire flight back I was so hot I could hardly stand it. I had to change my clothes and it still didn't help very much. My meals were also pretty bad on the way back, which is odd because they were not bad on the way there. It was definitely one of the worst flights that I've ever had, mostly because of the heat."

Food is hit or miss, but typically better than competitors. The personal TV has a number of new releases and is easy to use."
Cons: "It was a bit warm on the entire flight and as many other customers have mentioned, the seats were a tad uncomfortable; albeit nothing out of the normal for economy class."

Pros: "the amount of baggage allowed. the food. the people i was seated with. the flight movie selection. the staff. the beer. the free toothbrush, toothpaste, slippers, jeju island water"
Cons: "i wish there was a way to elevate the legs when flying. my legs ache so bad when im on a long flight. maybe some sort of netting underneath the chair in front so you can put your feet in them."

Pros: "I've flown all over the world and it literally was the best flight I've ever had."

Pros: "It was better than expected. A wide selection of in flight entertainment to help pass time. I'd give it a 5 if I were in first class."

Pros: "tye food was amazing!"

Pros: "This was my first time on Korean Air. The flight attendants were so kind and attentive to everyone. I was very impressed. I felt the seats had more leg room and leaned back further than airlines I've flown on in the past."

Pros: "I liked the ample legroom. I liked the food. I liked that the crew periodically offered refreshments. I liked the spacious overhead storage. I liked how far the seats reclined. It doesn't go back as far as first class seats do but better than the economy seats of other airlines/planes. I liked the clean restrooms. I liked the entertainment selection. I especially liked that you can view the external cameras."

Pros: "Crew members were great."
Cons: "No problem."

Pros: "Everyone was friendly and helpful at all times and it was fun experiencing a different cultures food while still having the option of just chicken available."

All of the staff inside the plane was great and friendly, the food was good (I was surprised we even got food - it was a 2 hour flight). There was very good entertainment."
Cons: "The seats were extremely small and close to each other, I would touch elbows with the other passengers. It wasn't such a problem since it was such a short flight. And there was more positives than negatives."

Pros: "comfort"

Pros: "New clean plane...food... Crew service was fantastic!"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, convenience pouch, and comfort are all good."

Pros: "short flight, good food, on time, great service crew."

Pros: "I think you should add tv/movie in these flights from japan to korea. I think you should also give the full container for beverages :)"
Cons: "I think you should add tv/movie in these flights from japan to korea. I think you should also give the full container for beverages :)"

Pros: "Airbus 380 from JFK, very quiet comfortable plain, even in economy, very attentive, will offer juice etc often during flight. Large screen Entertainment system very good with large choice."

Pros: "Service was excellent as always. Food was okay, but better than most airlines that charge or have snack-sized portions."
Cons: "777-200ER does not have vent control and the cabin temperature was way too warm. Leg room in Economy is inadequate."

Pros: "Always great service and they really are quite accommodating."
Cons: "Delay out of Seattle made us miss our connection in Seoul, so had a day layover, but Korean Air was very accommodating with hotel and meals. Perhaps such short turn overs should not be the way to go for connecting flights or perhaps hold connecting flights for a few minutes -- missed by 5 minutes arrival, but would never have made it through transfer and gate connection without super help by staff and more time. KA did their best -- just wasn't prepared to stayover in Seoul."

Pros: "I loved the flight (Thanks Korean Air Flight Attendants!). The aircraft was an Airbus 380-800 and each seat in coach had legroom, a USB charger, access to 110AC, and an individual screen that had games, tv, movies for me and the family. Great airplane, crew, and 13.5 hour flight. Additionally, Incheon International (S. Korea) is in my Top 2 airports of all time."
Cons: "The tickets were bought many months in advance and the flight itinerary changed about 6 times during the months. I understand this completely, but each change had me checking the details of each stop to see what exactly changed. Most of the time the changes were 10 mins here, 10 mins there. It would be nice for the changes to be BOLD or something."

Cons: "The screens on the backs of the seats were difficult to utilize (it is a touch screen but I had to tap on the screen multiple times in order for it to actually work). Perhaps due to an outdated system/software. There is a remote placed sideways/length-wise under the screen that you may take out of its placement however it was not as convenient as directly tapping on the screen."

Pros: "Very clean, comfortable, brand new 747.. Very professional and friendly flight crew.. Food was above average, no complaints.."

Pros: "Food and service was great Thank you"
Cons: "Everything was great I will recommend to any one"

Pros: "- food"
Cons: "- a bit of turbulence"

Cons: "Online check in didnt work"

Pros: "Legroom"
Cons: "Food was terrible, very stingy with the drinks"

Pros: "Crew AMAZING. Service was impeccable. Food and wine were interesting and varied. Absolutely amazing comfort."
Cons: "Media choices were not interesting to me. Used my own device instead."

Cons: "Great"

Pros: "The crew was amazing and delightful."
Cons: "The crew was amazing and delightful but should provide food to kids first before even those special diet or vegetarians."

Pros: "Everything was just average to poor."
Cons: "Baggage was not handled properly. Food is just average. Crew looked very tired, they are probably too much overloaded with work and the airline has poor scheduling of shifts for their crews."

Pros: "Qatar airlines the service was awesome and the planes very clean"
Cons: "Seating not able to upgrade"

Cons: "Will fly in a bit.still in Qatar airport waiting for my flight"

Pros: "The leg room was huge, the food was excellent and a lot and the customer service was great not my first time to fly with Qatar and it won’t be my last, the made my trip worthwhile. Thank you"
Cons: "No complaints so far so good"

Pros: "The plane was very new and wasn’t crowded."
Cons: "The arrival time was slightly delayed but overall it was okay. The hot food again can be improved as the chicken dish had no vegetables (even though there was a side salad dish). The waiting lounge at Doha airport gate was a bit cramped, and the bus ride from the gate to the aircraft was also a bit long."

Cons: "It was too cold in the plane."

Pros: "all nice"
Cons: "nothing but avoid bread"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Cons: "Connecting Qatar flight should have been held, instead wen had to spend 9 hours in the airport until next flight"

Cons: "I am a very experienced traveller. I always book an isle seat, especially for long flights (this was 12 hrs.), so that I can get up and stretch my legs etc. The couple sitting beside me were upset that I did not take the window seat. When it came time to sleep, the wife stretched out over her husbands legs, who was sitting beside me. This meant her feet were coming on top of my legs, and her legs were forcing her husbands legs into my space, touching my leg - I had to put a pillow between my leg and his leg. I asked the Qatar hostess if she could please ask the couple to change their positions, so that my seating space was respected, resulting in no body touching. The hostess replied that she was not permitted to ask the couple to change their positions and be more respectful. Fortunately there was another unreserved isle seat and I was able to move. Due to the fact that airplanes have become cultural melting pots, thousands of feet in the air, I think it would be peacefully beneficial too all, if a very discreet announcement could be made at the beginning of each flight regrading seating etiquette, respectfulness towards others etc. this could also be printed in the flight magazine. Thanks in advance."

Pros: "very courteous flight crew"

Cons: "No proper communication and very poor management. I was on an emergency and no one bothered to listen and all the passengers were sent . The customer care numbers didn't work as they operate between 8-5 !! No one to reach to .. really bad experience. Don't suggest this aircraft for folks who needs to travel urgently !"

Cons: "My suitcase was broken"

Pros: "Flight attendants very nice"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK. PHONEY wheel chair users. Saw a woman with one leg who.REALLY needed one tough it out while others were just lazy. I saw them walking after wards. They just don't want to wait in.line. Handicapped should have wheelchairs but once they have them they should wait like everyone.else"

Pros: "Beautiful airplane with an incredibly hospitable staff. Food was delicious, seats were spacious and comfortable. Couldn’t ask for a better 14-hour flight!"

Pros: "Very crowded flight but still had room. Amazing and and easy to use entertainment. Super friendly staff. Comfortable seats. Exactly what I have come to expect from this amazing airline."
Cons: "The food could use some work. It is still better than most other airlines but not as good as most high schools. However, you will not go hungry because they make sure that you stay and hydrated on their flights. I do dislike all the dogs that are allowed in planes. Now flights have babies crying coupled with dogs barking. Takes away from the overall ambiance that Qatar tries so hard to achieve."

Pros: "Great service. Great food. Great entertainment."
Cons: "Space is somewhat small for a short flight and totally unbearable if you go Sao Paulo-Doha."

Pros: "Good, attentive service by the crew."

Pros: "The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people."
Cons: "The previous Qatar flight took 1.5 hours longer than originally stated and we had to rush to the connection without visiting the lounge. We missed out on the lounge on the flight down as well due to timing."

Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."

Cons: "The process of checking in is difficult because qatar codes are different from asiana, therefore I couldn't do an online check in."

Pros: "Let's just say there was nothing I didn't like"
Cons: "I have no comment"

Pros: "Very courteous!"

Pros: "Okay"
Cons: "Okay"

Cons: "They flight was moved up about 1 hr earlier. But no email/SMS/call etc. I totally could have missed the flight as a result! Why would they change it and not let passengers know?"

Pros: "Their food and crew was good."
Cons: "Seats are very small now and the entainment system was all messed up that day for the whole plane. We were trying to watch something else and system was playing something else."

Pros: "Timely response on the phone."
Cons: "Timely response on the phone."

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: "The business class seats on this A330 are to tight when turned into a bed."

Pros: "Crew had amazing customer service with a badly serviced plane"
Cons: "Was on flight QR 743 Doha to Boston. The pilot landed as if it was an afterthought In good weather, it sounded as if the pilot used the computer to land. The crew worked with great pains within a difficult situation. The flight was delayed by an hour, full flight had dirty lavatories without water from the get go! One of the middle lavatories could not lock! This plane should have been better serviced by ground crew before it departed Doha! Infotainment system is confusing, keep it simple and add more up to date movies. Even then, I will still fly QR over all else."

Pros: "Economy treated like first class!"

Pros: "They don't charge you for any seat in economy class"
Cons: "The boarding process feels very hostile, they are not nice and you are threaded as a terrorist (while they smile at you during the process). Since a new policy of TSA according to them, you cannot take your computer with you in the plane. This means that working in your way back is very hard and you will be loosing the day which is very uneficient. But what was even worse, is that they didn't allow me to check my bag in the last connection gettting to the US, instead they made me check it from my original destination which made me loose almost two days of work without giving me a logic response on why I couldn't check my bag from my inbound flight to the US. By the way, this protocol from TSA is terrible. No internet in their flights No chargers plugs in all of their flights (including the ones that take you more than 4 hours) Lunch in their 15 hours flight is mediocre, everyone was starving since they only gave us one mini empanada."

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Not that there is much to be done, but the passengers behind me had a small child and continued to ask me to move my seat and asked the flight attendant to ask me to move my seat up as well so that she and her grandson could have more room. However the gentleman in front of me had his seat back, so I was fairly uncomfortable for most of the 13 hour flight."

Pros: "It was just am awesome experience. By God's grace we had a safe trip and God helped us. Interestingly, Qatar airways is quite excellent and commendable in their professional disposition."

Pros: "The leg space is what got this flight a 3 star."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Food is not up to the standard. They make announcements that there will be snacks like sandwiches and ice creams, but they don't offer that openly. You have to ask for snacks. Now we, US citizens don't like to ask for food just so you know. The crew should offer. if we don't need the food, we can always say no."

Cons: "The customer service of your company is the worst."

Pros: "The crew was great, trully world class service"

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Non"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "No comense"
Cons: "It nice"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I made a request in order to change the meal for my daughter and even when I got an email confirming the change, it never happens and nobody from the counter can give me a proper answer and a solution and she had to take the normal meal."

Cons: "Even though we had valid tickets, qatar airways did not allow us to board the flight because of some internal issue. The staff were very rude. they did not even provide any accommodation or compensation for making us stranded"

Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "Nice fly attendants. Boarding on time."

Pros: "My bags did not arrive on my trip to India. The airline representative was waiting for me as I exited the plane stating that they were working on locating the luggage. Their service was professional and prompt. My bags were delivered the next day. I highly recommend this airline."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good for now"

Pros: "There was an amazing variety of tv shows and movies. That is essential for long flights like ours was."
Cons: "For long haul flights, I am used to being offered a pillow/blanket, even when sitting in economy."

Pros: "No entertainment on the plane and plane was very small..."
Cons: "Explain flight situations better.."

Cons: "The flight was delayed because one or more of the crew were late. I would suggest that when you board a large flight, start from the rear of the plane, not the front. Having to go past everyone to get to your seat is time consuming and somewhat stressful. The food was super gross. The so called beef bulgogi was not appetizing at all. For breakfast, the food was disgusting."

Cons: "Better space. Better service. Terrible directions"

Pros: "The best"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Seats are small and not good for one's neck"

Pros: "Korean air is a step above the rest. Best airline in the business"
Cons: "No WiFi on the flight, but there is so much media offered you really forget"

Pros: "Crew was awesome, super friendly and helpful. Even the korean food options tasted delicious."
Cons: "Not plus size friendly. The bathroom is too small for a plus size person to be able to use and for a 14 hour flight I think that’s important. Also if you’re plus size and the person in front of you reclines, it’s impossible to pull down your tray fully."

Pros: "The cabin was to warm"
Cons: "The cabin was to warm"

Pros: "No problems. Service was great and we got there slightly faster than anticipated"
Cons: "Flight duration but that’s impossible to change so other than that nothing :)"

Pros: "The flight was comfortable"
Cons: "It got delayed multiple times."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. I've got the exit seat: very comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment choice could improve, very few choices."

Pros: "compared with other airlines they were just OK"
Cons: "everything"

Pros: "good service"

Cons: "Comfort plus seats on final leg did not appear to be different than main cabin"

Pros: "The overall experience on the flight was quite pleasing. The flight crew created a warm atmosphere on what was a very cold morning. Seating was not the most comfortable but the wasn't unbearable."
Cons: "Delta should have a better food menu for those early flights unless the motive is to encourage everyone to eat an organic and wholesome meal prior to boarding, something we all should be doing."

Cons: "Air conditioning was very loud"

Pros: "I got home alive."
Cons: "The crew was surly. The flight was delayed. We received little information about the delays."

Cons: "I booked a business class ticket through klm, but it was a delta code share flight. Delta was unable to locate me in their system, and I had to contact klm myself to straighten it out."

Cons: "More comfortable seats!!!"

Cons: "No ear buds were offered, i had to ask and then FA forgot!!?? Snack basket was just awful choices. Captain was great I really appreciated the constant updates as our flight was 1. Hour delay on depart and also delay landing at jfk, very smooth trip"

Pros: "Crew was fine - not their fault that DELTA changed my flight at the last minutes with terrible options on rescheduling my flight!"
Cons: "Yes...not change my flight at the last minute and causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then making me reschedule my flight with only options that I now have (2) layover and then arrive in Korea another day later, that then caused me to miss my college orientation day!"

Pros: "Food were bad. Out of air condition"

Cons: "All was good"

Pros: "Lisa @ the Boston Delta check-in counter is AMAZING! She's super helpful and essentially saved our vacation! Her coworkers say she's the best and I couldn't agree more! Delta is very lucky to have someone like Lisa on their team!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about! If I really head to be picky maybe the in-flight meals were smaller than I expected. But again, nothing that bothered me"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Business aisles are one way only, very impractical. Bathrooms are tiny unlike 777 and the seats are not good, i dislike the narrow feel of the feet well and there is noooo storage for shoes or amything else..what fail. And the door thing is a joke. I will make zero effort to fly this equipment...777 is the best after loosing the 747."

Cons: "Na"

Pros: "The food was amazing. The entertainment system was fantastic. The crew was lovely."
Cons: "The small bathrooms"

Pros: "Great staff and they worked hard to make the flight comfortable."
Cons: "The seats are small and the plane feels like a Sardine can."

Pros: "First Class. Cabin service. Frendiliness of staff. Plane arrived early."
Cons: "Breakfast was not served in First Class"

Cons: "Flight took off three hours late. After we boarded the plane, we had to sit on the plane for over three hours before we finally took off. When you’re on a flight that’s already 15 hours long, the last thing you want to do is sit on the plane for an extra three hours for nothing."

Pros: "Perfectly fine first class trip"
Cons: "Breakfast meal was awful"

Pros: "How friendly and easy it was to board. The pilots were very friendly and even gave my daughter wings. The crew made us very welcomed and put our booster in the closet till we landed."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Gate Agent was extremely helpful and compassionate regarding making sure our family (traveling with adolescent children)was accommodated ."

Pros: "Snacks"

Pros: "Speedy flight"

Pros: "gate agents were friendly and efficient boarding. FA were fine and quickly served beverages and reurned two more times offering snacks and more drinks. comfort class seats were comfortable. all in all perfectly fine"
Cons: "i was not able to use my RU cert even after applying it over one month before and having diamond status.... makes me think why bother with status"

Pros: "Flight attendants seemed nice"
Cons: "Too tight in the seats"

Pros: "Excellent piloting and cabin crew."

Pros: "Flight crew was good, we arrived early on flight out and back! Feel like seats are tinier than ever, maybe it was just me. Food (water & pretzels) were OK, but nothing special (then again it was a short flight, so I didn't expect anything). Plane was small so we needed to gate check bags and the gate attendant came around and tagged everyone's bag for us, well before boarding which was hugely efficient - kudos to her on that!"
Cons: "Gate attendant's mic was broken (or she didn't know how to use) so she had to yell into the boarding area."

Pros: "Every thing went well"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Delta crew are lazy...they wont help u out to store ur bags."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived early. Good boarding experience. Seating had access to electrical plugs for charging my phone."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours, but due to weather. Not the airline's fault. They got us here sooner than I thought we could arrive. Plane was tiny"

Pros: "We had a whole row of 3 to our family, so we could put the armrests up & the kids just laid down in our row (on me, & each other) and slept most of the flight. The flight crew was very understanding and helpful with my kids who were just with me on an intl flight "daddy duty.""
Cons: "Since it was a flight from Seoul, Korea to Seattle; it would've been nicer if all the movies had Korean subtitles-- my 4-yo boy who only speaks Korean, couldn't make it through more than 15 mins of a movie because he couldn't understand (of course, some of that is due to age & short attention-span). But he kept saying, "I hate English" in Korean while trying to pick a movie. Also, I'm 6'2"; so while it was nice having the whole row for my kids to lay down in-- I was cramped and uncomfortable the whole flight, even moreso with Delta's seats being closer together than on other international carriers I've flown."

Cons: "According to the website and documentation a card holder is supposed to get the first bag free when using this card. I did not, so I will be cancelling the card."

Pros: "All Good"
Cons: "Read above."

Cons: "small aisles and space in the seats. me and my wife were seated"

Pros: "The crew was great on both Korean air and Delta. Very helpful and polite, with several going the extra mile"
Cons: "I'm tall, so I'd like bigger seats, but I guess that can't be helped much without a price increase"

Cons: "The airline lost my suitcase and deliver it only 72 hours later... They refused to give me proper compensation for items that were broken..."

Pros: "The best airline ever! Super friendly crew and staff, great customer service and nice planes. Love KLM!"

Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"

Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."

Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"

Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"

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."

Pros: "Service and crew amazing friendly and went out of the way to Make u feel special even the pilots gave updates thru out the flight"
Cons: "Not being to help on the ground in Copenhagen with delta issues"

Pros: "economy plus seats were nice, great movie selection, especially international movies"
Cons: "crew was not friendly, i had to ask for water many times, usually water person walk the aisle. food was terrible. other carriers food were better"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Cons: "Too hot inside the aircraft"

Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "seat reservation. having to pay for luggage...."

Pros: "Service is awesome. Food is great."
Cons: "People with short connection are affected by the 15 to 25 minutes delay."

Cons: "There was no wifi on flight"

Pros: "Good for both."
Cons: "Bigger seats."

Pros: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"
Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"

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

Pros: "Good food, friendly service"
Cons: "More trash pickup; only one round of beverage service"

Cons: "I ordered Wheel chair for my parents but one of them didn't get it at all. When my parents were checking in for flight they asked the representative about meal selection and she didn't answer their questions properly and because of that my mom didn't get proper Hindu Vegetarian food on flight instead she got Egg omelet which she couldn't eat. She has to eat just fruits. My mother is a diabetic patient and she needs a food every after some time. I never had such a bad experience before with any other airlines."

Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"

Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"

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"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Nice that wine was served without charge."
Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."

Pros: "Flight crew very nice"
Cons: "Paid $70 for seat with more leg room and was the exit role to main entrance. No overhead space for carry on: broken food tray holder. People stepping on my feet. And gather in your space waiting for bathrooms. Window seat had no room for feet because of closed door"

Pros: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Long, slow line at check in. Not many new movies or tv shows"

Pros: "Comfort was better than on the previous Dash-8. Food was OK."
Cons: "Despised the cold temperature and cold draft in world business even with all vents shut off...gave me a head cold. Boarding was disorganized. There was no sense of direction; ergo, everyone was jumping in."

Pros: "Friendly in-flight personell"
Cons: "Approx. 1 hour delay, which was not the airline's fault (construction on runways)"

Cons: "Customer service"

Pros: "Nice crew; clean plane; decent dinner"
Cons: "No entertainment system; insufficient knee space"

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

Pros: "The crew were hardworking, responsive, conscientious and friendly"
Cons: "Really poor entertainment choices esp compared to my inbound AirFrance flight. Boarding was pretty disorganized and late."

Pros: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Super delayed. Could have fixed the issue BEFORE we were sitting on tha plane for TWO hours"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."

Cons: "Bag was lost"

Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."

Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."

Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."

Pros: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"

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

Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."

Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"

Cons: "sardines!"

Pros: "KLM food and service are great"

Pros: "It was very comfortable"
Cons: "The crew was great"

Pros: "...The transfer at JFK was terrible"

Pros: "There's almost no padding to them and they're very narrow. I know it's nothing new but I'll keep complaining until something changes, if ever."
Cons: "The crew was wonderful, the food was extremely good for economy cabin standards."

Pros: "Nice new Boeing 787, lots of space."
Cons: "Seat could use a bit more cushion, a bit thin for a long haul service. Also, had to take a bus to the aircraft which slowed the boarding."

Pros: "pleasant"
Cons: "Pleasant"
