Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Same as the first flight."
Cons: "Same as the first flight."
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment, courteous staff, 2 bags luggage allowance"
Cons: "Seat is small and uncomfortable and crowded"
Pros: "Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "The air conditioner was on full blast for a trip to Istanbul, Turkey from NYC. It was very uncomfortable and I could not get any sleep because I was freezing the whole way. Seriously, two sweaters and a blanket did not help. My hands were so cold I the entire time."
Cons: "I can’t find my luggage"
Pros: "Great entertainment, good seat comfort (even in economy seat), good food and friendly service."
Cons: "Please don’t be black and travel with Turkish Airlines. They are rude and racist. Over booked flights, chances of missing connections. My son ranged the bell to ask for water. When the hostess came, she spoke to the white lady sitting next to him, the person told her it is not be that ranged it is him. He wants water, she walked away did not speak to him and never gave him the water. The only food they served was pasta. If you don’t eat that no other options. They will pump you off a flight that you purchased because they are over booked and expect you to be ok with it. No customer service at all."
Pros: "I like the fact that they were ready to inform the New York passengers of the boarding time at instanbul. I was able to go through the security faster than the other passengers."
Cons: "I didn't like the food. It taste sour. The foods needs improvement."
Cons: "boarding was messy at IST"
Pros: "Everything you want in an overnight international flight. Enjoyed the food."
Cons: "No gangways."
Cons: "gate was announced at the last minute, and within 5 or 10 minutes of the announcement, the plane was boarding. the boarding process was not handled well. the entire hallway leading to several gates was blocked off for checking boarding passes and passports. it was not at all clear what was going on. no explanations were offered, and there was a huge crowd stuck in the hallway."
Pros: "The business lounge in Istanbul, Turkey was 2 floors, full of food, drinks, place to sleep, shower and sleep. The staff was superpeb."
Cons: "A man in the business lounge took my home address and cell number and told me that I would get a complimentary ride home. But when I arrived at the Business counter at the Dulles International Airport, they informed that no such program is in place."
Pros: "The ground and flight crews were outstanding. Boarding was easy in Houston. I got to see the flight crew handle a medical emergency and saw that they were well prepared, efficient, and concerned. The food and entertainment were fine. I felt like the seat space was better than on British which I often use. I had an empty seat next to me however. I was impressed that the flight crew moved a taller gentleman to a premium (exit) seat to accommodate his extra tall stature. He didn't ask, but they wanted him to be comfortable."
Cons: "The airport in Istanbul is pretty manageable. They changed the gate on us twice for the connection, which meant a bit of walking. But the crowd was pretty manageable compared to LHR."
Pros: "Food was above-average for international flights, and the staff visited the cabin frequently, checking to ensure that customers were okay. It definitely felt like a more personal flying experience."
Cons: "Ground support (desk, etc.) in Istanbul was not convenient - the communications were crossed often, and on a long layover we were told incorrect directions and missed an opportunity to sleep in the airport in their resting room (seems to always be full)."
Pros: "Crew is amazing food is good plane is clean and comfortable"
Pros: "I was upgraded. Food was great"
Cons: "Flight was late"
Cons: "I received my luggage one week after the flight"
Pros: "Our flight from CAIRO was delayed for 3 and half hours. We missed our flight to Chicago. The Staff at Istanbul airport were very very unhelpful and rude. They did not try at all to find an alternative route for us. The lack of empathy and understanding was astounding. NEVER TURKISH AIRLINES AGAIN!"
Pros: "The services was excellent."
Cons: "Delay around three quarter an hour."
Pros: "The crew was nice and kind for the most part. The food was good although a bit small, but good flavor."
Cons: "The plane wasn't clean, the table/trays hadn't been cleaned. We had a 2 hour delay and no reason was given and waiting for food for a very long time in this case and it was already late in the day."
Pros: "Movies, I had leg room. Nice friendly staff .."
Cons: "Internet would not work"
Pros: "there are a lot of movie"
Pros: "Crew attendance"
Cons: "No place for hand luggage"
Cons: "As well as being bumped to a flight seven hours later because of a late first leg, encouraged to switch to trade with a heavy guy for a middle seat. 9 hours to NY is a long time to lose the who-gets-an-armrest game on both sides."
Cons: "Customer service was very poor while we were struggling to get back to the US while the hurricane was coming to FL. We tried twice to fly home earlier because we knew the flights were going to get cancelled but the airlines wanted to charge us $1500 for that. So when the time came and the flights got cancelled they were trying to adjust the flights and we got stranded away from our kids. Overall it was not a great experience as far as their customer service and we were not happy with how they chose to handle things."
Pros: "Food, no delays, entertainment, price"
Cons: "No leg room on the plain, the crew is ok, but not very friendly. Not flexible with kids menu (requested kids menu, but crew was not notified and was not able to provide any), not very clean inside the plane (tables were dirty and there was hair in the window)"
Pros: "great crew and flight!"
Cons: "We would have loved to have been able to easily upgrade to business class but weren't able to."
Cons: "Slippers and blankets were not provided to all passengers. Toilets got unacceptable by the end of the flight."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good and the convenience kits were nice to have as well."
Cons: "The flight attendants took a very long time to hand out drinks and meals. The worst part of the flight though, was how long it took them to pick up the trays once people finished their meals. Numerous people had to bring their own trays up so that they could leave their seats and use the bathroom. There were also no drinks distributed between meals. The seats were extremely close together and leaned back very far so that space was extremely limited. It was extremely uncomfortable, unlike other Turkish Airlines flights I've taken."
Cons: "Damaged luggage. My fist time traveling without my parents and didn't know what to do. Tried looking for someone to contact on the Turkish airlines site, no luck. My mother will help me when she gets back from her holiday."
Pros: "Seatback entertaininment options were amazing. Food wasn't always designed for the American palette, but most of it was pretty good, and they put a good effort into it, unlike US carriers. Flight attendants were great. Boarding was organized and smooth."
Cons: "It's just hard to make a 14 hour flight in economy comfortable. Another inch or two of space would have helped, but I understand the tradeoffs involved in that. Baggage collection at IAH took about 30 minutes, but that may have been the airport's fault and not the airline's."
Pros: "I have to say that I flew with different companies in my life, Turkish surprised me with the extra luggage and the quantity of food ( I am vegan and they gave me 2 yummy vegan meals). Also the sear were more comfortable than I expected"
Cons: "First of all the staff needs to work on their customers service. The flight was 1 hour and 45 min late and I had another flight to get in Istanbul to get to my final destination. I almost did not make it. The staff never gave us an explanation about what happened at the JFK I flew for 10 hours scared and stressed out. I asked the staff if it was possible at the time of landing to get out with the business class or somehow to get out before everybody else, but they were completely useless. Also in the middle of the flight a woman started feeling very bad. She had an intense migraine because of the high pressure, clearly the woman was not used to fly very often. The poor woman was ill and the entire crew was surrounding her. 7 ppl standing in the way of customers, a male attendant touched my shoulder with his private parts at least 5 times. Also every time they passed by the would hurt my shoulder or my arm with out even apologize. What kind of customer service is this? Forgetting about all the other passengers? Creating a situation of panick just because of how unprofessional they are? You can be the most comfortable or cheapest airline company and add all the luggage and food you want but if your crew doesn't know anything in customer service the customer will fly with a different company next time!"
Pros: "they fed us on both flights and offered drinks"
Cons: "my knees were pressed into the seat in front of me. Im 5/8"
Cons: "It was an hour late arriving!"
Pros: "The service from Turkish on the flights was great. The service for rebooking was great, once we got to the front of the line."
Cons: "Due to a snowstorm (beyond their control) we had to rebook. We were in line for over seven hours because they did not honor the line and helped whoever walked up to the front. Many people 'cut' in line. It wasn't until someone yelled at them about the problem that they started to honor the line. Unfortunately that was five hours in to the wait!"
Cons: "Stuardess was very rude and banged on the bathroom door while people were in the bathroom, including me and there was no turbulence. Also would not let people stand and called the captain to lie that there was turbulence so people would seat and he did. Told people to sit down even though they were waiting to go to the bathroom."
Pros: "Entertainment system is excellent, food is solid and plentiful."
Cons: "I've flown Turkish a few times before, and they're generally pretty good for the price. This trip was different. Despite Turkish Airlines policies outlined in their "Customer Rights," I received no notification that the flight was delayed 3 hours, and there was no notification at the JoBurg airport until you go to the counter to check in. JoBurg staff - which are Menzies third-party contractors, not Turkish staff - were disorganized, uncommunicative, and unhelpful. Only one person at the check in desk seemed to have authorization to make any changes, so all other agents were running back and forth to speak with him, and not communicating with passengers. It took over an hour to get clarity on the situation and rebook my connecting flight to Washington for a different flight 8 hours later. The only compensation offered was one meal voucher worth R100 (roughly $7). They would not even look at other Star Alliance flights for early arrival in Washington, and said they were not authorized to consider upgrading my ticket. When I called the Turkish customer service, they essentially said "What do you want us to do about it? You have to submit a formal complaint." Boarding was totally disorganized. In theory there are boarding groups, but after business class and all the high-ranking loyalty members, it's pretty much a mad rush. This seems to be the common practice for Turkish now. In general, Turkish has a great entertainment system on all their long-haul flights, with tons of movies - including very new releases - music, games, etc. They also provide complimentary kits with socks, slippers, eye mask, earplugs and dental kit, even for economy passengers. The meals are fairly good for airlines. However, legroom in economy isn't great. I'm 6'1", and had difficulty getting comfortable with my knees jammed into the back of the seat in front of me. On this particular flight, I was in row 18. The cabin crew were frantic, disorganized, and shouting to each other across passengers. One half of our row was served the meal, and the other half had to wait over 30 minutes to be served for some reason. By that time the vegetarian option was no longer available. Crew also had to run back and forth between service carts because they were frequently out of very common beverages (like sparkling water. And ice.), and on two occasions crew left a drawer from a cart full of trash sitting in the aisle. There were several times that crew ran carts into passengers - including once into my knee that was not in the aisle - and didn't even acknowledge doing so. They also stopped the carts in front of occupied lavatories, temporarily trapping passengers. So not terribly professional. While not specifically on this flight, the experience in Istanbul airport with Turkish Airlines' staff was awful. Zero interest in helping, rude and dismissive, and overall terrible."
Pros: "Great great great"
Cons: "Never been better than this time. Usually turkish is the best and i allways travell with turkish and i feel safe and co fortable"
Cons: "The temperature was a little bit low."
Cons: "Crowded -/ entertainment equipment bad"
Pros: "Nothing, other than the relief after it was over"
Cons: "I was moved 5 times on the plane, each time to accommodate a Muslim woman wanting to sit with female friends. After being pushed to the back, 10 minutes into the flight they moved one of the Muslim woman with crying baby, non stop crying from the check in until landing, to the back across from me. Same woman made me move to sit with friends. Staff had no ear plugs."
Pros: "Efficient and on time. Part of Star Alliance. Much better than any domestic USA or low cost European airline."
Cons: "Nothing negative"
Pros: "The flight was smooth (good pilots) and the service was great."
Cons: "The space between seats."
Pros: "Excellent service and food."
Cons: "Lousy boarding, we were standing on the bus for a long time, in front of the not ready airplane. Entertainment was bad, the sound plugs didn't work properly, the movies kept breaking off. Not a standard we were expecting at all :("
Pros: "The food on Turkish Airlines is fantastic, and the crew are exceptionally polite. Actually the best meals I've eaten on an airplane."
Cons: "On my flight from Istambul to NYC I was told I had been given an aisle seat but in fact I got the middle of the middle. If there were no aisle seats left, it would have been better if the person had just told me that, rather than saying I had an aisle seat, and I found out later. It was very distressing because I have diverticulitis, which is a serious stomach complaint, which means I need to be able to get to the loo! I felt that they could have been more understanding about this."
Pros: "We travel and used different airlines but Turkish airlines is one of the best."
"I liked the timeliness of the departure and arrival, and the crew were good. The turbulence was rough, though."
"No seat assignment. Was put in the absolute last seat in the plane. Flight was delayed because of an electrical issue which also broke the AC until we were taxi-ing. It was hot."
"Plane was hot. Flight handling was poor (rough takeoff, landing). Young and inexperienced pilot. Short flight made it bearable. If it was longer than an hour, that would have been terrible. Beverage service? Warm water. Disappointing."
Cons: "Very comfortable flight!"
Pros: "Crew was great and seats were totally perfect and comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing could have been better, except steak and lobster 🦞😃 Thank you very much for your ability to make customers welcome and comfortable."

Pros: "Great crew. Entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Should add weather/radar to the flight tracker"
Pros: "Early, clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Air flow from air above seats was blowing out hot air. My seat kept reclining so I got yelled at and I didn’t do it on purpose. Long wait on ground before takeoff."
Pros: "The crew was extremely helpful and friendly!"
Cons: "The seats, overall, could have been more comfortable... I have somewhat of a backache after my trip."
Cons: "There is always just too much talking and announcements on the flights now."
Pros: "Same crew and great experiments again"
Pros: "Crew was polite and very helpful."

Cons: "There were costumers taking off mask and walking through plane."
Pros: "I appreciate that Delta leaves seats empty, for our health."

Pros: "Super respctful"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and very clear about masks."
Pros: "The space between passengers."
Cons: "Nothing it was perfect."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."

Pros: "Great crew."
Pros: "Great crew."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable. Snacks were good. Inflight entertainment was amazing. Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Nothing it was perfect"
Cons: "Extremely frustrated. Upon booking my ticket, I was told it wouldn’t be a full flight. At no point did u receive any information alerting me that it was going to be a full flight. I was extremely uncomfortable due to COVID."
Pros: "It was a nice, quick hop. Everyone played by the new COVID rules."
Pros: "Took extreme measures for COVID prevention. It felt very safe"
Cons: "When I pick up my bags"
Pros: "We needed a seat belt extender and one of the crew members noticed and was so kind in getting that. No embarrassment or drawing attention to the customer. His name? David"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient. Flight attendants were helpful and kind and seemed to care."
Cons: "We booked basic seats knowing we might not sit together however we did not know they would separate children. They put my husband and I in an exit row and my daughter at the back of the plane with strangers. I was not comfortable with strangers being responsible for my child. I assumed they would seat children with at least one parent. We did ask to move at the gate and the accommodated us with the last row on the plane. No recline, no window, and right next to the bathrooms. We took it to be with our kid but this policy needs to be revised. Kids should always be seated with the adult responsible for them... who knows what kind of person might end up next to my child. Not to mention if she had needed something is the stranger gonna take care of it? It’s just a bad practice imo."
Pros: "On this short flight, the flight attendant was wonderful, accommodating special requests and being fully engaged with passengers. On time departure, early arrival, overall a nice quick flight to Duluth."
Cons: "CRJ200 planes are always a bit cramped, and having to gate check anything bigger than a small purse is an inconvenience. Hopefully the fleet will change over to the Embrair planes soon. Beware 'Basic' flyers (cheap tickets): you are not eligible to take an earlier flight even if available."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly. Boarding was quick."
Cons: "Seat size in Comfort+ was still cramped. The person sitting next to me(in the middle was a fairly large (height not weight) and his arms and shoulders were pretty much flowing into my seat( I sat by the window). Leg room of course was fine. Very cold draft coming from the airplane(window?)"
Cons: "No issues at all"
Pros: "Having three seats."
Cons: "I had three seats to myself! After getting elbowed all the way from Amsterdam to Minneapolis, I was tired and I slept three good hours."
Pros: "Great employees, genuine, quick drink service, early arrival, available entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding process was slow and backed up due to extra baggage needing to be checked involuntarily"
Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Take a long time to taxi to the gate & getting off the plane."
Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."
Cons: "My flight was delayed over 3 hours and I have reached out to Delta and no one has called or emailed me back."
Pros: "It got me home, eventually."
Cons: "Poor communication, a 6 hour delay followed by a 7 hour layover (during which we had to sleep on an airport floor because Delta couldn't offer us any hotel vouchers). Gate agents disappeared after 7pm becuase they were due to be done with their shifts when our flight was originally supposed to leave at 6 pm. It felt like we were trapped in the movie The Terminal. Oh! And our bag was misrouted, because that was just how things went those 2 days. All in all a 6 hour trip turned into 18 hours. I could have driven home in that amount of time!"
Pros: "Everything was in order"
Cons: "None really"
Pros: "The gate agent and cabin crew handled passenger's misery with friendly grace and professionalism. Also, it was an old plane and so the seats, even in coach, were comfortable."
Cons: "Plane was around 45 minutes late in arriving at our Minneapolis gate. Flight was further delayed by something (unspecified) being "frozen." WORST part was that the temperature in the seating area at the gate was horribly cold. Departing passengers at a neighboring gate were bound for Fargo and sat with their parkas on and with parka hoods up. We Houston-bound had packed our coats & boots and were shivering. Then when we finally boarded the crew announced that the plane's water system was broken and so we would have no hot coffee or hot tea or hot anything. No water, also and obviously, in the restroom sink. But sani-wipes were provided in the sink basin."
Cons: "On the MSP to ATL leg the gate crew made a huge deal about checking rolling bags. They even stopped us at check-in and nearly begged us to check our bags pointing to the backed up jetway. But we had a lot of unpacking to do before checking our bags so we politely declined three times. On getting to our seats there were at least 8 open slots for bags near us. I heard a crew member call forward to say "tell them no more rollaboards" so they forced everyone left to check. On departure they slammed shut several very large empty overheads. WTF"
Pros: "I had an open seat next to me."
Cons: "Bumpy flight"
Pros: "Yes, Very good"
Pros: "This Transavia Airlines is not good at all."
Cons: "Many things cheaper does mean better."
Pros: "Almost everything, especially the crew."

Cons: "Delay due to strike"
Pros: "KLM STAFF WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL"
Cons: "SOME CREW MEMBERS WERE ABIT RUDE. THEY NEED TO WORK ON THEIR ATTITUDE"
Pros: "Excellent crew, good food & movie selection."
Pros: "The crew was great. The soecial meal request was hadled well despite oversight."
Cons: "Soecial meal request was made in advance but overlooked. Did not mind it so much as eating less is not a bad idea! To err is human."
Cons: "1. In Flight Entertainment 2. Controlled In Flight Temperature"
Cons: "Flight on time would have been good when you have a late evening arrival. Long wait for luggage at Birmingham airport."
Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"
Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."
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: "Economy comfort was very nice, food decent, plenty of toilets to avoid overcrowding, and good entertainment selection."
Pros: "Very personable staff. Food acceptable for airline fare. Ticket price was outstanding."
Cons: "Paid for extra legroom, but very narrow seats not comfortable. Very difficult to sleep. Old plane--could not hear movies and unclear screen. Music sounded OK and choice was good."
Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Cons: "Flight canceled, poor communication from the airline to the passengers. Møre than 5 hrs delay"
Cons: "Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM"
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: "Travel on Crostian Airlines did not pappen. KLM flight to Munich was cancelled and I was rescheduled on Air Setbia to Belgrade, the Split."
Cons: "That it didn’t happen."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."
Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."
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.."
Pros: "Good information and helpfil boarding."
Cons: "Has to wait in confined area fir nearly 2 hrs before boarding. No restroom or refreshments within that area."
Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"
Pros: "The food and the punctuality"
Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"
Cons: "I don’t like the limited choice of drinks on these short KLM flights."
Cons: "No proper info regarding cancellation. Staff was unfriendly and abruptly responded to passengers."
Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."
Pros: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."
Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."
Pros: "Easy Boarding"
Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
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: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."
Pros: "quick boarding, responsive Airline stewardess, very polite."
Cons: "temperature control was not good, service was fine, seats were not comfortable. plane need to be cleaner."
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The space is no longer a respectful space. Paid 32 Euros for my seat, there was not enough space, the man beside me kept jabbing me on the ribs."
Pros: "Flight unpleasant. Ground staff in Marseiile great but gate crew didn't control carry on baggage and many of us could not use overhead bins because of passengers who stowed more than one and often oversized suitcases above, so we and many others had to place carry on suitcases under seat. Attendant on plane totally unhelpful and could have rearranged a few bags to make room but preferred to stay in back of plane and talk. To be fair, rest of flight was pleasant although late due in part to boarding issues."
Cons: "Carry on baggage issues and storage on plane. One aloof and unhelpful member of flight crew."
Pros: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"

Cons: "tout est à revoir !"
Cons: "I dint like the way you guys sold me the tickets with only one bag to check in with when I went to the airport I’ve got to pay 58 pounds extra I was not happy with you guys so next time you have to tell your customers before they buy the tickets that’ it’s one bag check"
Pros: "More space in business class (777-300) than many other airlines."

Cons: "Hard seats Boarding was 35 min delayed"
Pros: "Great food (Economy class). Good Service"
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms on Economy class area due to aircraft design."

Cons: "The interface of the screens seemed old Need to anticipate the needs of the customer better For example, they brought me my special meal first, but I had to wait 30 minutes later to get a drink to accompany it. The food was getting old. Did not see any newspaper/periodical selection. That would have been nice."
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"
Pros: "Nice staff, very professional and helpful."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The food very good"
Cons: "First the plane was delayed because of a technical issue that I think they should check before The plane was crowded and old."
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were professional and tried their best"
Cons: "The flight was a chartered flight . Air France informed us that due to cabin crew shortage they couldn't operate an air france flight and hence they hired Air Belgium. Whilst the crew were nice , the actual plane was old and creaky. It wasn't up to the standards expected of Air France. They could have done better in getting a plane up to standard. A lot of the passengers were disappointed ."
Cons: "Waited a while before take off."
Cons: "The seat seemed smaller and space was very uncomfortable. The boarding process was very painful because we had to wait for a longtime."
Pros: "The quality of service from the staff and their courtesy. A great asset of the airline."
Cons: "My luggage was left behind - this despite my being lifetme platinum."
Cons: "Plane was canceled at the last minute with a transfer desk literally assaulted by 100s of people. Only 3 persons on the desk. No lane for sky priority. Queued for nearly two hours before some airport employee gave us instructions to travel by train without any other information or tickets etc. Had to buy my ticket. Couldn’t recuperate my suitcase. Had to wait for it the next day for three hours. Up to this hour I don’t know how I am going to be reimbursed (train and plane)."
Pros: "Speed, courtesy of the flight attendants"
Cons: "Landing was a bit rough, understandable due to the weather."
Pros: "The price 50€ cheaper than the other operators. Quick flight. Kind crew."

Pros: "It didn't take longer to board! Crew with great attitude Take off and landing were just great"
Cons: "My sandwich, it contained too much pepper, I mean too muuuuuch My narrow seat No entertainment"
Pros: "Premium Economy on AF Boeing 777 on this route is not "a little less than Business", but rather "a little more than Economy". Seats, in a 2-4-2 configuration, are hard but OK, as well as the pitch. Good screens and entertainment."
Cons: "With the main meal, AF serves only "ordinary wine", This looks and tastes cheap. On the same route and class, Vietnam Airlines serves premium wines, a nice touch that would not cost fortunes to AF! Also, the "Asian" choice for the main course did not look and taste like the real thing."
Pros: "Chicako Párizs szuper , udvarias személyzet pontos érkezés."
Cons: "We were rebooked, which understandably happens for any number of reasons. However, we were not informed or asked about our preference until our luggage was checked through! The staff especially in Chicago where we began this awful experience couldn't care less about our situation. Then AIr France lost our luggage and provided no help in locating them. We had to rely on folks who had friends working in Zagreb Airport to locate them. Air France is incompetent, insensitive and unprofessional. If you have an important trip avoid Air France - they treat you like captives not customers."
Pros: "It was clean The crew was very kind Food was very good Flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats were exceedingly close Screens for entertainment were small and game controls were difficult to use"
"Seat 5A could not lie flat!"
Pros: "the only thing that stands out was the agent who checked me in at Entebbe. She was pleasant and helpful. Most things were ok, but not special."
Cons: "Because I require oxygen onboard, I was not allowed to check in on line. consequently, my wife and I got middle seats that were very tight. At least one of them was an aisle."
Pros: "I liked the (free) upgrade to Premium Economy."
Cons: "Food was ok but I recommend including a small salad with dinner."
Cons: "Delay of 40 minutes"
Cons: "The Florence Airport has difficulty with baggage. Had to wait for over an hour."
Cons: "Free coffee"
Cons: "Poor organization, 2 hour line to check your bag, crowding due to lack of communication and organization at the gate, slow luggage boarding. All of which led to a 45 minute delay sitting on a hot and unairconditioned flight followed by a missed connection and 6 hour wait at the next airport. There was no entertainment inflight, so nothing there to rate. The staff were pleasant under the conditions. Nothing else was positive."
Pros: "Get down"
Cons: "Everything and the crew more friendly."
Pros: "this flight was supposed to be cancelled and refunded i never heard anything back from kayak nor brussel airlines after sending them our family members death certificate!"
Cons: "this flight was supposed to be cancelled and refunded i never heard anything back from kayak nor brussel airlines after sending them our family members death certificate!"
Pros: "Very pleased with crew and seats."
Cons: "There is no entertainment which is ok. You had to pay for everything in flight. Their carry on luggage size allowance is smaller than any airline I’ve ever flown"
Pros: "This particular flight was parked at the closest bay to immigration at Heathrow. So a late boarding and arrival was made early through not having a mile long walk to passport control."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding with the plane load of people huddled around the entrance to the boarding area. No guidance from the crew on how to efficiently pack the overhead bins efficiently with passengers helpless to put their treasures into the overhead bins."
Cons: "Flight delays is a constant problem with this company"
Pros: "At least it was a flight"
Cons: "Noisy, no complimentary snacks nor drinks, no legroom"
Cons: "There is not much variety of what to watch- movies/tv. For a long flight it is a nightmare"
Pros: "On our longer flight, we were thrilled- nice crew, delicious food, spacious, great pilot, and enjoyable entertainment experience. However, on our shorter flight from Brussels to telaviv, not only was the crew completely inattentive, but they were intentive to some very disturbing things including children who were pulling the hair of other customers and jumping up-and-down in the aisles of the airplane. There was no available entertainment whatsoever. In addition the food was extremely expensive and not particularly tasty. The plane was uncomfortable and smelled atrocious. These 2 vastly different experiences almost made me feel like I was taking 2 different airlines. Please keep consistency."
Cons: "I didn't like the inconsistency of the 2 different planes that I was on. If you are going to have entertainment you should have some form of it on all of your airplanes. The idea that food that you need to buy is so expensive is absurd. I was really blown away by how badly the plane smelled. It was almost as if I was in a bathroom. And on top of that I really felt very unsafe with children jumping up-and-down kicking people pulling their hair etc. While it isn't the job of the flight attendants to be parents, they certainly need to be aware of safety concerns for the rest of the passengers."
Pros: "Food was better than average."
Cons: "Boarding could be done more efficiently."
Cons: "Switched plane from Brussels to United which saves us 3hrs but then they lost our luggage. This was after we asked them to double-check. They told us that our luggage had been logged-in to our new flight. We are very disappointed in Brussel airline and will not use them again."
Cons: "the fact I bought a new ticket"
Pros: "I missed it"
Cons: "I missed it"
Pros: "It is a quick trip which is nice."
Cons: "The staff for SN Brussles is very rude to Africans. They are super disrespectful and it is very obvious how tacist they are. It is uncomfortable flying witha stafflike that. Also our flight had electrical and engine problems at our first stop in Freetown. Once we landed in Monrovia, it took about 35mins for them to let us off the plane because the doors were not working and opening up. Once we finally got off the plane, it took a whole 2 hours for them to get our baggage e off the plane because spmething was wrong and they couldnot access the baggage to take it off. I am aware that planes can “fly with one engine”, but flying a plane with one engine along with it having electrical problems is not safe and A RISK! why take that risk of something bad happening, not only would lives of innocent people and their crew get lost, but that is a million dollar assest that could get lost and a PR nightmare. It is a shame they took that risk. They also dodnt tell us until we landed. Had I known before we took off at Freetown I would have gladly fot off and found another mode of transportation to get to my final destination. SN Brussels is know to send their sh*tty planes to Africa, because there are always problems with the planes heading to that continent. It is just another obvious proof of their racism."
Pros: "Also a good airline, though the a la cart..."
Cons: "The a la carte approach that includes charging 3 euros for water. I mean, seriously?"
Cons: "The service and constant mistakes on rebooking a cancelled flight that ended in more than 6 hours delays and luggage lost"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Food was rubbish"
Pros: "Everything was perfect, highly recommended"
Pros: "Great moives and enteratinment system. Comfy seat. attentive staff on board. Also minimal annoucements, which i love because i don't like to be disturbed in my sleep to hear about the weather."
Cons: "Was stuck on plane for 3 hours before they had to cancel it due to computer issues. Missed connenction flight ( 27 hour delay for connecting flight) with them as well as a result, had to stay 2 extra nights (in great accommodation they provided, at least) had minimal information about what to do in the morning (almost missed the bus to the airport because they only had a little sign noting it) Overall they took care of us from the delays, but I still missed a day and a half of work because of it."
Pros: "No major issues. Crew provided help making a short connection at Brussels."
Cons: "Flight was slightly delayed. Entertainment selection was limited but OK. Seat comfort in coach is low, not much padding; but then, most airlines seem to think comfort is not needed in coach."
Cons: "Flight delayed and waited over an hour at baagage claim .no one to speak to or help. Worker at baggage claim sitting on phone ."
Cons: "Stingy with food, very little entertainment if at all"
Pros: "Staff was ok."
Cons: "Very poor service at brussels airport. It took 15 minutes to connect the bridge and evenually we had to go down the stairs to take a bus that also took 15 min to start. We also left late frm malpensa due to late check-in but i thin rhe plane actually camw in late too."
Pros: "I enjoyed everything but"
Cons: "....the morning snack and audio of the movies. Also, wifi should be available (even if it's an additional cost)"
Pros: "The food somewhat but I couldnt enjoy it when everyone else seated where I was had better food and I couldnt have the better food because I had to order it...something that was never mentioned if it was atleast by email I wouldve ordered. Swiss airlines have emails to give you options on entertainment and everything else...follow their lead"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude and moody like they didnt want to be there and took it out on the people they were suppose to give service to. One flight attendent got upset or acted a little nasty because I asked her for another custom border slip. She said was going to bring one but I guess she forgot and an atleast 30 minutes to an hour went by till I asked her again and she got nasty. The same lady along with the other flight attendants snatched trash out peoples hands like they were diseased...and they had gloves on. When it came to entertainment they didnt have much variety. Unless the price for the flight is dirt cheap or below average I would choose to fly with them again other than that I'll go to another"
Pros: "They had a funny safety video"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour. Not only did this mean that I didn't have a chance to rest in Hamburg, it also meant that I had to sprint to get my connecting flight which was on the other side of a huge U shaped airport."
Pros: "The team was nice, the flight took off on time and arrived a few minutes early"
Cons: "Even though I'm a star Alliance frequent traveler status holder, and the status grants an extra bag on economy class I was forced to pay for my first checked in bag. Furthermore, since I assumed I'll be getting my checked in luggage for free (as it states on the miles and more website) I didn't pay for it in advance a fee of 35$, meaning they made me pay 65$ in the airport."
Pros: "A very full flight that was managed well. Staff were accommodating and pleasant."
Cons: "I am not a fan of spicy food when flying so the snack item did not work for me. The more interesting international films were not available with English subtitles."
Pros: "They were responsive. They had lots of gate agents. You had to initiate the conversation though."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4.5 hrs. The check-in process was not smooth. After additional security screening at the gate everyone was left on the jetway until everyone had their tickets scanned. They were late loading cargo and food."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Flights were uneventful. Enjoyed the ability to watch a movie on the little TV that each seat had. Made the long flight feel much quicker."
Cons: "On my flight from Dulles to Brussels, the seat cushion was pretty much worn out. Felt like I was sitting on concrete. My butt was pretty sore after the flight. Flight back was totally fine. But it was a small inconvenience. Everything else was great."
Pros: "Fast Boarding"
Cons: "Was waiting for a lagguage over 30min at Tegel airport"
Pros: "Great l! The food was good, landing was smooth and seats comfortable. Entertainment options were ok but could be better. Overall I enjoyed my experience and would love to fly with Brussels airlines again."
Pros: "Clean, professional and great meal!"
Cons: "I lost whole lot of items from my suitcase when it left behind at my arrival to Liberia. I never said any because it was Africa and I knew. I would never get those stuff back. I am disappointed"
Pros: "leg space is quite big"
Cons: "the food was poor - Cold Pasta salad"
Pros: "The flight was on time!"
Pros: "The food, efficient crew"
Cons: "Awful boarding process, one person alone for all the passengers with another 3 around doing nothing, which caused the departure to take place more than an hour late"
Pros: "1st time on Brussels. Wonderful overall trip."
Cons: "The meal home was not so good."
Pros: "Thanks to formula b.family we had priority when boarding. The Kids were offered a present on board."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Chaotic airport and lost my luggage."
Pros: "Good flight schedules to where I need to go in West Africa. On time generally. Leg room is average or better."
Cons: "The Brussels/Lufthansa economy thinly padded seats are brutal. I was awoken to a sore behind over and over. You can feel the crosswise metal rod underneath. I sympathize with lack of catering options coming out of developing countries, but the economy meal for the red-eye return to Brussels was hard to swallow, too."
Cons: "Brussels air used united Airlines for this leg of the trip. They canceled all the flights to my destination due to weather. However other airlines did make it there just fine. I think that they canceled the flight just because it was not full. I had to spend the night in the airport. The flight in the morning was overbooked. No one should fly UA if they can avoid them."
Pros: "got there.."
Cons: "my bag was lost, delayed flight (2 hours), damaged contents in my bag."
