Miles better than China Airlines and any of the USA based airlines too. The movie selection was pretty good and the seats were roomy and comfortable."
Pros: "Japan Airline is a notch above the rest. The services was constant and consistent, the food was delicious and abundant, and the seats were comfortable.

Pros: "Good staff service and friendly people. The food was good. The flight was on time."

Cons: "Seats, food, entertainment"
Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "I was disappointed that Air New Zealand charges US15 to reserve specific seats. For our party of 3, that would be US90 RT so I didn't do it. But at the gate I asked for window seats and the attendant gave us excellent seats at the front of the plane."
Cons: "No issues that caused us any problems."
Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Ran out of meal options, flight was delayed so one option breakfast not appropriate at midday. The flight attendant blamed the person in front of me for taking the last other option. I had to clarify with her that meant there was only one option left. She seemed annoyed at me for asking."

Pros: "Very friendly and helpful staff"
Pros: "Very efficient trip."
Cons: "One flight attendant was subdued and not too bubbly."
Pros: "The entire experience is well thought out"

Cons: "Nothing#"
Cons: "Was not informed a return flight listing required Was not informed $260 baggage fees"
Pros: "A bit late leaving Auckland but we were kept well informed of the changes"
Cons: "Upon arrival we were informed that each checked bag was $60. This was news to us. The NZ flight employee informed us that Air NZ informed us quite well of this info, this the booking agent was at fault."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "ATR seats uncomfortable No food"
Pros: "staff was lovely"
Cons: "didn't have a second pillow in business class bed was too flat for me. no other extras given. disappointing"
Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Staff not incredibly nice but OK. The thing that bothered me most is that if you book through KAYAK that sends you to Virgin Australia, you can’t book bag, nor buy a meal if you want. I didn’t want to meal but I did want a bag and it’s a big difference. If you do it online it’s 39 Australian dollars, but if you do it at the airport it’s AU$160. That’s just outrageous and the staff was not helpful at all"
Pros: "Good flight. Good crew. An overall good experience"
Pros: "Was a huge help when my connecting flights didn’t link up due to flight delay, I was so stressed but every single person with air nz helped to make it as easy as possible and were so friendly!"
Cons: "Nothing at all!"
Pros: "Booked these flights though Kayak. Landing from LAX at 0730 at Auckland international terminal and then departing at 0900 from the domestic terminal. This is not enough time, doesn’t allow for customs and immigration. It was a really stressful experience running between terminals with my luggage, as there was less than a 1 hour window after getting through customs and immigration, so the bag drop at international wouldn’t accept them. Got to departure gate 12 minutes before plane departure. You need more time to have a good experience !"
Cons: "Not enough time booked by kayak between an international arrival and domestic departure"
Pros: "vvery comfortable flight"
Pros: "good entertainment"
Cons: "we purchased a sky couch for an extra $700 and was not put in a skycouch row. I have contacted Air New Zealand and have yet to hear back from them."
Pros: "Nothing really. Smooth boarding.on time departure"
Cons: "Passengers with more than one bag as hand luggage"
Pros: "Great customer service, from boarding to disembarking. Great care for comfort and needs."
Cons: "Selection of video options on the app entertainment systems."
Cons: "They charged $120 per checked bag- none are included in airfare. Also, no free food."
Cons: "Air New Zealand needs to manage double door boarding a little differently - a ticket checker needs to be at the split point - to streams of passengers trying to find their seat in opposite directions just doesn't work."
Pros: "My husbands booking was not processed correctly from the site we booked through, and we didn't notice the mistake until we were checking in. We were at the airport at least 2 1/2 hours before boarding time. The mistake could have been rectified, we were told it would need an email from Virgin to confirm and change the booking. We photographed and sent through passport details. We phoned the booing site, we phoned Virgin, we were put on hold for 25 mins while the booking site phoned Virgin - but Virgin refused to help us out! My husband was not able to board the flight - no refund, no help - and the sad part was, it wasn't for a holiday - it was to visit and help his 87yr old father-in-law who had fallen and cracked his spine. No sympathy from Virgin, VERY DISAPPOINTED!"
Cons: "I was not able to board flight because air new Zealand Staff would not assist."
Pros: "The boarding and on-board service were excellent. Enough free-of-charge entertainment to keep me occupied during the 3-hour flight between SYD and CHC. Plenty of room for carry-on luggage."
Cons: "Felt like I was flying a US carrier - very little room between the rows. I was surprised by this, as I thought that non-US carriers generally don’t pack their planes. I was surprised, but not inconvenienced by this, since it was a morning flight and only 3 hours gate-to-gate."
Pros: "I thought our male flight attendant was not only slow to offer water, pick up trash, or respond to attendant calls, but he was also rude about it, making excuses when asked about the delays instead of simply apologizing and making sure to do better the next time. Also, the calzone breakfast was pretty bad. But other than that, the flight to LAX was ok. The entertainment system, as usual, was excellent, and we had room enough to stretch out during the long flight."
Cons: "I thought our male flight attendant was not only slow to offer water, pick up trash, or respond to attendant calls, but he was also rude about it, making excuses when asked about the delays instead of simply apologizing and making sure to do better the next time. Also, the calzone breakfast was pretty bad. But other than that, the flight to LAX was ok."

Cons: "Nothing, as usual excellent service from Air New Zealand."
Pros: "Fantastic crew!"
Pros: "Cool dimmers for window shade; flight attendant notice we did not have headphones and gave us some first class looking ones that really cancels out the noise. Although we had it in the pocket we did not choose to use at that time but she took it upon herself. Staff always friendly."
Pros: "Clean. Enjoyed the entertainment."
Cons: "We took off at 7:30 and were given wsaer. Did not receive food for two hours which would have been fine if we could have had a coffee, tea, cocktail or a wine. We're not offered a drink until after food was served."

Pros: "The food"
Pros: "Nice flight. Good service but it seems women dont get service men do. Ie my wife."
Cons: "Screening was arduous. Line for business class check in at counter was chaotic with no sense of order. A real mess. took over a half an hour and agents were processing coach passengers randomly and seemed oblivious to business class passengers who paid a significant price for the tickets."
Pros: "Attentive service - woke me up before landing (as instructed) and served a meal."
Cons: "Boarding on Doha was chaotic"
Pros: "Staff was courteous"
Cons: "My meal preference was not available."

Cons: "I dislike the economic class on a 19 hour journey to Doha to Dallas Texas I felt so tight and annoyed with people next to me when asking to go to the bathroom that’s my mistake next time I surely will go on bussiness class other then that everything was great."
Pros: "Food was delicious as always the crew never disppointed me always made me happy there’s very very good trained"
Cons: "I have nothing I dislike from Chennai to Doha it was only 5 hour journey so I was so comfy"
Pros: "Everything."
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "Choice of flight from Utapao really was a no brainer. 45 minutes from home to departure lounge, had I flown from Bangkok I would still have been on the motorway! Everything went like a dream, a huge thank you to all at Qatar Airways, a true quality service."

Pros: "The overall experience"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The food was very poor"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Theyt cancelled my trip"
Pros: "Food was better. Seating was comfortable."
Cons: "Old plane treating the Africans like poor people of no value .. All other Qatar flights have newer aircrafts"
Pros: "Flight was without any hitches, could have done better with boarding after the previous mishap of a 5 hour delayed flight and being forced to stay in Doha for a night which put everyone's schedules off by a day. Still, I would book another flight with Qatar airways for their efforts and overall good service."
Cons: "It would have been nice if Qatar Airlines also provided Priority Boarding for everyone on the flight that got delayed as there was a long line just to get to the boarding area."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."

Cons: "Small cramped seats."
Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"
Cons: "We could not watch anything as my wife and my screen did not work."
Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"
Cons: "the flight was canceled."
Pros: "Extremely like Qatar airways Both ground services and in flight service are excellent"
Cons: "Nothing . everything was fine."
Cons: "The legroom is ok but the space between two seats is very tight and felt very cramped throughout."
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."

Cons: "6-hour delays coming and going. Sounds like a an issue."
Pros: "My daughter gets airsick and one of the staff in particular was so helpful unlike some other airline"

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight left on time!!!!!! :)"
Cons: "Food was served too late. Unable to get a bottle of water as I was dehydrated."
Cons: "As I missed this connection flight we were re routed to Cairo then Larnaca. We landed at 6:30pm and didn't get to our hotel until 8:30. Missed my friends wedding. It was a disaster. As a Qatar airway member I feel let down and am disappointed with the lack of interest shown by the airline in relation to an apology of any kind. What can be done about it. I've booked a trip to be a part of my friends special day and instead get to the reception as guest start leaving. I also get fined from the car hire company as they cancelled our hired car due to a no show and have ended up with a less inferior car as that's all they had left. No real apology given si is like to know what are you doing about it?"
Cons: "Love that they fly an a380 into christchurch - a bit overkill but was told it is cheaper to overnight the plane in christchurch vs Sydney or Melbourne"

Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Pretty much self serving at the back of the plane ( like it)"

Pros: "all good"
Cons: "all good"
Pros: "Almost everything."
Cons: "Flying on 8 Jan is a time when there a lot of holiday makers heading home or perhaps just going on holiday. Lots of young children and a baby crying right behind me wasn't the most relaxing but I realise that nothing can be done about that."
Pros: "great food, entertainment & service"
Cons: "I was seated in business class - the attendant gave my special order food to another guest and gave me something else instead. I could have gotten very ill from this, and notified the flight attendant who shrugged it off and walked off."
Pros: "Crew were really good. Had lactose allergy but no meals available for me onboard. Couldn't get to a resolution as we were unsure on ingredients but crew did everything they could. Were very friendly about whole thing"
Cons: "Delay but stuff happens eh."
Pros: "Crew was great..easy check in for a techno dinosaur like me."
Cons: "Was not impressed with the seat armrests...but it was my first time on the dreamliner...usually fly airbus and sleep like a top !Would also prefer not to have to do customs till I reached Adelaide but thats just a minor quibble."
Pros: "Caught a tail wind for a shorter flight"

Pros: "Overall experience was decent. Food, boarding and entertainment was top notch"

Cons: "They only offered pretzels."
Pros: "Fantastic Service On time Easy boarding"
Pros: "I'm not sure the reason I wasn't able to change my food selection on QANTAS, but the site never allowed me. I bought the flight thru Justfly.com"
Pros: "Really appreciate the food and entertainment Qantas provides on these mid-haul flights"
Pros: "Non stop flight across the ocean was unbelievable! How can it fly so far with no stops?!! It was nice to have meals served."

Pros: "Got us safely to our destination"
Cons: "Seats were far less comfortable and smaller with less legroom than our Qantas qf8 flight"
Pros: "The flight was on time. Crew was pleasant."

Cons: "With an almost 3 hour delay the lack of information from Qantas staff was infuriating and we were held in what felt like a ‘holding pen’"

Cons: "2 hrs delay. Entertainment system froze and no sound from time to time. Dirty seats."
Pros: "In flight crew"
Cons: "Disregard for chosen seats and unwillingness to reinstate them."
Pros: "Helpful service and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Don't choose seats 9 A/B/C as there is a bulkhead and not window in this aisle (Boeing 737-800)"
Pros: "Nothing. The very best parts were still mediocre"
Cons: "This flight was so uncomfortable. The seats were small, hard and crammed together. Qantas should be ashamed of making people deal with that on a 13+ hour flight. They kept waking us all up and in general staff could provide little"
Pros: "Absolute top shelf service from checkin to de-planing."
Pros: "The new clear aircraft"
Cons: "The fruit was not ripe and not edible."
Pros: "The service was very friendly, proactive and helpful. Got to fly in an A380 and I got a whole row to myself. the cabin crew were extremely attentive."
Cons: "The menu said we would get a weiss bar (amazingly delicious mango ice cream) on the menu and we didn't get one!"
Cons: "Delayed Boarding and they didn't say anything."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Cramped in economy, little space. So few staff members for economy. Had business on way over and obviously had so much attention"
Pros: "Good pillows."
Cons: "They let us know by email little before departure that there would be a delay of 1h 15 min in our arrival to London. This made me uneasy from the very beginning that I would lose my London-Luxembourg flight. The crew in the boarding gate, only after much insisting, said they would make a note so that someone from Qantas would wait for me and help me get my London-Luxembourg flight no problem, but in the next stopovers (Melbourne, Dubai), there was no sign of this. Also, the delay in the end was 2h 20 min - and I lost my flight to Luxembourg."
Cons: "Not told that pretty much the only in flight entertainment required downloading the qantas app"
Pros: "I love Qantas in general. I paid for exit row seats and it's worth the extra money."
Cons: "Food was ok but I've had better in Qantas."
Pros: "The staff showed they cared about you comfort and tried to make sure you were enjoying your flight"
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "Qantus flights were great, really appretiated the extra care they took in ensuring we made our connecting flights after delays and then compensated us for American Airlines stuff up with our luggage."
Cons: "Airline just assumed we had access to phones and Internet and the know-how to be able to download the Q app for entertainment. We didn't and we had read the inflight magazine (old, tired and boring) on the flight on our first leg from MEL-SYD."
Pros: "Service was too notch. Despite software issues and timtams out of stock, crew were lighthearted and joked around with passengers. V refreshing."
Cons: "Comfort still has room to improve, a foot rest would be a step in the right direction. Particularly for us shorter types or those who like to curl up and sleep. Also random upgrades (eg. Exit rows) is always appreciated. Online dinner special was excellent. Breakfast was terrible, maybe because it was the last meal so not as fresh?"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment system (on-demand), on-time arrival, decent food."
Cons: "Announcements at boarding gate were impossible to understand -- very muffled."
Pros: "Entertainment system was good as usual"
Cons: "No food on plane due to issues after extended delay Woke up 4 1/2 hours before flight due to land with a frozen orange juice and a muffin. Too much wind to land and a final vomitus landing. Not the best."
Cons: "I'm a qantas frequent flyer and have always been loyal. But next trip, I will try a different carrier (Etihad, Emirates even Singapore). Standards have slipped, customer care is lacking. I heard this from people I was sitting with as well, so not just my opinion."
Pros: "Screen size is better and bigger"
Pros: "The crew on both legs of our trip were nice and accommodating."
Pros: "This is a delayed flight after having my flight to the previous night delayed to the extent that I could not take it and make my connecting flight out of Minneapolis."
Cons: "This is a delayed flight after having my flight to the previous night delayed to the extent that I could not take it and make my connecting flight out of Minneapolis."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and professional. Enjoyed the reworked safety message before take-off."
Cons: "The Comfort+ seat, while it had plenty of leg room in front, had a small width-box that many Americans (being larger than perhaps they should be) will find extremely uncomfortable at best, and unable to fit in at worst."
Pros: "Reliable Airline - on time - kept up to date on flight timing - Great crews."
Cons: "Good stuff."
Cons: "Cramped seats, no a/c on tarmac for extended period because of technical issue, ancient entertainment system. Old plane with minimal overhead bin space, delayed flight"
Pros: "There was an available seat next to me"
Cons: "I had to walk from one end of Minneapolis airport to the other end all within 35 mins to catch a connecting flight, tram was not in service. Not fun!!!"
Pros: "There is Nothing that like"
Cons: "If you allowed me to get in this flight everything would've been fine.?"
Pros: "crew was amazing"
Cons: "there was water leaking from window during landing and the food was not hot and was just bland and uncooked"
Pros: "On time arrival is always appreciated."
Cons: "Overhead compartment jammed with someone else's carry on. We paid for "comfort seating" and I frankly didn't see any difference - if there was more room on those seats, it was small enough I couldn't SEE it."
Cons: "Seat assignment with Economy ticket."
Pros: "Flight attendant Bret wen out of his way to help us locate a lost pillow."
Cons: "First flight attendant asking about the pillow she found in the aisle and kicked to the side."
Pros: "I appreciate how Delta always takes care of their passengers. Comfortable seating and accessible entertainment"
Pros: "Early and middle seat was open!"
Cons: "Coffee tasted like fish. :("
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: "The crew was very nice. Quite helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "The only small item is the gate size in MSP. Always a bit crowded but still departed on time so it’s not a large issue."
Pros: "Crew members were all very friendly and made the flight a nice trip as best they could."
Cons: "It would make a lot more sense for people to board from the back and window seats first so that we are not climbing over each other to get to our tiny seats."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats did not recline"
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: "Great"
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "Great service. Smooth flight. Funny flight attendants. No issues boarding or deplaning."
Cons: "Food wasn’t great. What’s new?"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Take a long time to taxi to the gate & getting off the plane."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "This was an older, smaller plane and it had more leg room. Appears I’ll have to start checking Delta to see what birds flying the leg."
Pros: "Great overall flight, as expected in Delta’s first class."
Cons: "Boarding was a little confused. Crew was excellent as usual, but seemed to stop service in the last hour. Food was good, but they ran out of my preferred option. No screen entertainment, but access to entertainment was available via the WiFi."
Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."
Pros: "On time, comfortable, great flight attendants."
Pros: "Loved having the Movie and tv options on the flight, really passed the time"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, seat assignment at gate, was very anxiety provoking. I was concerned would not get on flight."
Cons: "The flight was a Christmas gift for my mother to spend some time with her friends in Mazatlán. I heard she spent the entire day waiting at the airport as her flight was rescheduled 4 times."
Cons: "1 hour delay, no explanation, no weather problems, late for my meeting in Houston."
Pros: "Quick boarding, clean plane, good entertainment system."
Cons: "Used a neck/back pillow and jacket against hull to try and keep my shoulder and arm from freezing solid. I usually sit by the window on a couple dozen flights per year, and it has never been this cold on my arm. I wonder if a heating pad would work on their outlet?"
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: "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."
Pros: "Good selection of movies/shows."
Cons: "Flight was delayed half an hour due to “medical emergency”. Guy passed out as we were about to take off so we turned back to the gate and sat on the plane for over 30 mins while we waited for medical personnel to check the guy out. Then had to wait another 15 mins for the fuel truck to refill us because we had burnt so much sitting there. I understand that we had to turn back due to his condition but why was he not removed from the plane and put on a later flight when he felt better instead of making all of us late? You would think after all this the crew would be kind and appreciate our patience but 2 of the flight attendants were the exact opposite of that. Both of them were very short with people and the one kept rolling her eyes at people as they were handing out drinks. The only thing I would give 5 stars is the tv entertainment. My seat wouldn’t even recline for me to enjoy though."
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
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: "It got me to SFO earlyish"
Cons: "Was told to go away and wait for name to appear on screen for seat assignment. Was seated apart from travel companion. Got to sit next to folks with questionable hygiene, seat broken. Seatbelt broken. Stuck in back of plane window seat and was supposed to be “happy”. I was brilliantly ignored by crew. Seat back entertainment broken snd flight crew never answered the call button. Got to watch bag handlers throw and drop luggage like true gorillas. Delta, this time you truely are the worst. Wont book you again."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The stewardess was extremely polite, though the pilot was less chatty (probably due to lack of turbulence during the flight). Decided to risk drinking the coffee again, and was pleasantly surprised that it actually tasted good."
Pros: "The food was good. The entertainment choices were plentiful."
Cons: "I missed having a personal vent by the individual lights above the seats."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Staff were a bit rude. The boarding process was slow as everyone rushed up when they announced the first zone to board, and obviously this was not policed. We didn't get our seats until we got to the gate because apparently we bought our tickets too soon to take off, which was three weeks. Also, staff claimed there wasn't enough bin space so asked people to check their bags. We saw people with two big bags get on board at the start, and then staff made everyone at the back of the line check their bags. But there was plenty of bin space before take off. And we were seated in the last row which can't recline."
Pros: "Wonderful experience with the staff."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No entertainment Small overhead bind"
Pros: "Great crew. Good space on my exit row seat"
Cons: "Seat doesn't recline, though it's considered a "premium" seat. No power either. Ticketing process was crazy - I was not able to get a seat assignment until 5 minutes before boarding. Why? And there was no explanation of the situation. I had to ask, multiple times, what was going on,before I was finally told that I was going to get on, but they just didn't know where. This could be handled much more clearly!"
Pros: "Not too much this leg!"
Cons: "Baggage retrieval was horrendous! Absolutely a nightmare which after paying for 3 nights hotel with no discount, I was further inconvenienced by the inability to receive my 2nd luggage and after requesting it be delivered, I, I, tracked my bag and you chose to send it 3 days ahead to my destination and I HAVE NOT RECEIVED any acknowledgment of my online inquiry which is why I am complaining. I've had to purchase a new set of luggage AND will have to pay for them on my next 2 legs on Delta. I apologise for seeming so harsh as I know you've had so much trouble because of the tornadoes, but this leg of my trip cost me an additional $800.00 plus AUD and I was here in the US to care for my father who recently had a 2nd heart attack and my final days in USA were meant to be a holiday, and all I can say is the stress because these expenses have removed any enjoyment (I know I'm looking at this half empty, not half full). I'm glad to share this and hope you're company loses will be recouped after this mess! Daniel Grayson Craigieburn, VIC Australia"
Pros: "Seated my husband I together (finally) at very back of plane next to window (not our preference)."
Cons: "My husband and I although booked together were seated in middle seats 9 rows apart. We atrempted to change our seats online at KLM (not possible), online at Delta (didn't recognize our KLM purchased flight), in person at KLM counter in SVG, in person with THE Delta rep at the check-in gate in AMS...no one could help us due to different systems used for seating for each company that the other one doesn't have access to. Flights booked by one company and operated by another seem common enough that this system needs to be improved. - Silver KLM travelers Also WAY too hot on plane."
Pros: "plane left on time"
Cons: "seats were too close, luggage was delayed,"
Pros: "?"
Cons: "The seat in this plane is the narrowest and most uncomfortable I have ever encountered in business."
Pros: "On time and very smooth boarding"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good handling of a late flight--made my connection, but without bags, and they kept us well fed and informed while waiting.."
Cons: "Of course the delay, but it happens."
Cons: "The stewards crew was very very very rude. The airplane looked like its going to come apart any minute. We could actually see rust in the wings of the airplane. I think the plane should be retired, for the sake of the flyers!!!!"
