Goof food and service
The flight was delayed by 95 minutes, which screw up my schedule badly..
There were no entertainments and was not allowed to use any devices.
Flight departed at 7.55 am, was about 2 hours - no real breakfast was served, just a roll and a muffin.
We got to move to the front of economy which gave us more legroom which we needed.
They changed planes on us and we lost our upgraded “premium economy” seats.
I was given the chicken dinner when I asked for the beef one - did not realize until the flight attendant was far away so I couldn't switch. This was a 13 hr flight - attendants did not offer water during the flight. No video options in English, only 1 channel on the screen on my seat, movie played on screen in front for all passengers to watch.
Seats were comfortable ... enough. Boarding process, once underway allowed me to get overhead bin and stash my other luggage in the seat below me. Flight wasn't overly booked (85-95%) so there appeared to be room for others to stretch out. Now about that crying kid...
Ugh. Weather delays. The flight was scheduled to board about 7P but it arrived late and they had to not only unload the self-loading cargo, but clean up afterwards. Would be nice to get a better estimate as to how long it would take to board so that I could hang out in the lounge. In addition, departure from JFK was delayed as well, either we missed the IFR window or got stuck behind some traffic and I fell asleep on the plane only to wake up what seemed an hour later just getting ready to hit V1. No upgrade.
On time as scheduled.
The staff is very friendly. Most pleasant airline I've flown with.
I was traveling for medical reasons and the Delta crew took great care of me, made sure I was at my connecting gate on time, and even put me in a better seat on the plane. Not sure if that was a coincidental upgrade, or intentional, but it was perfect.
Long wait for de-Icing. Got on and off the plane 3 times. First wait was 1 hour, but plane aborted takeoff. Second plane waited at gate with all aboard for 2-1/2 hours and never got slot and de-planed. Third plane waited 1-1/2 hours for de-Icing and finally we were headed home. Arrived 8.5 hours after schedule.
overall the experience was great
i would recommend notifying the gate and sending map of the airport before traveling. Airport is quite big and not much time to catch the next flight
One of my fave airlines now Great seats, services, staff Turkish coffee in the air!
they keep the cabin a bit too hot, need to ask them all the time to make it colder
On board entertainment ststem has lots of options to choose from on all accounts. Food selection was good, served hot with large selection of drinks. Overall much better than US airlines that cross Atlantic.
More comfortable seats for long haul flights is a must have. Comfort+ Offered a money’s worth alternative to business or first class. Boarding is done away from terminal building which required busess for transportation back and forth. Prefer skybridge instead.
Luggage policy, helpful ground and air crew. Price.
IST stoppover, damaged luggages.
they provide such a great service so that I cannot find anything else to complain.
Good multi media access and content
Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen.
Crew was very helpful.food
Food was not upto the mark.
From pre-boarding, to boarding, to the food, and the attentiveness, everything was top notch! The cleanliness of the plane was only topped by the friendliness of the crew.
The flight was marked at almost 11hrs but ended up being only 9...not a negative other than it meant not spending as much time on board!
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.
We’re not the seller.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
