Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Yes very"
Pros: "Entertainment and food is always great with Qatar!"
Cons: "After I got in my seat an Islamic lady came and said that I was in her seat. I looked at her ticket and while it was the right seat number, she was on the wrong flight. I got a stewardess to help her. She had gone through 3 boarding pass checks and was still on the wrong flight. They let her fly!"

Pros: "Crew excellent"

Cons: "The food was not served well. There were no snacks on the flight. The service was not even prompt. If I request for juice/water it was served to me after 30-40 minutes . I was travelling with a baby and the staff was not even considerate about it and attending fast. I requested for a mineral water bottle as I ran out of baby water for making milk for the baby and the staff was so reluctant and told "they are done" and just left.I am really dissapointed with this. I doubt if I would travel with qatar again"
Pros: "Very comfortable flight and helpful crew"
Pros: "Staff was courteous"
Cons: "My meal preference was not available."
Pros: "Seating and comfort is great, as long as you are not seated next to a 'larger' person or a person with restricted mobility. Not a fault of Qatar airways, but probably the norm in most international flights in Economy. Food was the best of all the airlines I have flown, and the correct temperature as well."
Cons: "Seat width could be a little better, but this is the norm, I would assume across all airlines."

Cons: "Everything was all set. Only shortcoming was No free wifi"

Pros: "Crew professionalism"
Cons: "Food: at best a B+ Laptop Wrapping at gate: very slow process Entertaining: movie variety is poor. Seat: even in business class the seat doesn't recline completely... not very comfortable as compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Catering and seating. They ran out of food and drinks"
Pros: "The seating, crew members, and entertainment was really good."
Cons: "I was given two options to choose from for brunch which were scrambled egg with sausage and paratha. Upon asking for paratha I was told that they ran out of Paratha. This happened very first time with me. Even though the crew provided me with excellent service I was surprised to hear the Qatar Airways could run out of food?"
Pros: "Even in coach the service is great. The crew is professional and courteous. Food is great too!"
Pros: "-Great selection of movies, Ted talks, and games to view on individual screens, headphones were provided. - Blankets and pillows were provided to everyone, along with a kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, and eye mask. - Adjustable head rest."
Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Bathrooms were dirty by 4 hours into the 14 hour flight. Sinks clogged, garbage can overflowing. Not just one bathroom. Gross. - Worst flight attendant service I've ever had, and I don't expect much since I've traveled a lot. Service was rushed, coffee cart for our side of plane never arrived, when I walked to the back to ask for some, they couldn't find the milk and made a fuss about looking for sugar. Lots of similar examples throughout the flight. - The baggage claim carousel number never appeared on the screens at IAD after landing. Other flights showed but not Quatar. We waited a while then walked around to check them all until we found the right carousel. Never seen this happen before. - One of our bags never appeared, so we waited until all luggage had come out and checked with the counter. They found our bag somewhere and brought it over after a 20 minute wait. No explanation given. Good thing we'd counted bags."
Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "Crews walking between the lines. They don't care pushing to others. They never said sorry for that."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and food was very good."
Cons: "Older plane, TV screens in the ceiling, only bathrooms at the rear of the plane."
Pros: "The best service"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
Pros: "Excellent service and aircraft! Top tier entertainment and food and wine."
Cons: "JKIA airport was terrible. Staff were late to come to the check in counters. Why can't they be there earlier than one hour so we don't have to stand in line for so long with our bags. Totally shambolic affair."
Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "I have flown previously with Qatar and was not so impressed. Everything was great this trip up until my return to the United States. I should have suspected a problem when I was requested to change seat in order to assist a family who were in separate seats. Moving was difficult as the plane was being loaded. I managed to get to the seat offered to find someone sitting in it. To top it off the individual was wearing a surgical mask and carrying a large immigration bag. I requested a seat forward but I was denied and I later saw other passengers moved forward to seats that I was denied. If I had known that the flight would have been full of possibility sick immigrants I would have chosen another flight or airline. At certain times the smells were very bad. I felt as a ff member I should have been treated better or been made aware of possible health risks."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The plane was not as clean as the one from Doha to New York. The first movie that was played was inappropriate for children under 16 years old."
Cons: "No leg room, very confining. Food so-so. I do not recommend traveling on this airline."
Pros: "Seats are very much smaller in economy. Hotel accommodation was no where close to good in comparison to Emirates or Thai."
Cons: "ANAZING flight staff! Friendly and courteous!!!! Loved them on all four flights!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was late boarding everyone on time. It was delayed 1.5 hrs. The entertainment system had its fault, as it was difficult to navigate between screens. The seats were uncomfortable and not enough room for such a long flight. The kids were extremely uncomfortable on this flight, as many were crying throughout the journey."
Cons: "I never made it to the Yerevan to Doha flight, because Qatar Airways did not get me to my destination in time. They had an emergency landing in The Azores, after turbulence and several passengers got injured, when the pilot failed to warn passengers to put on their seat belts and they flew into the air, hitting the ceiling before falling down. One passenger had a heart attack. Once they de-planed us in The Azores, not a single Qatar Airways employee helped us on site anymore. Passengers were left in the hands of hotel and airport staff. There was very little communication with the passengers. A relief flight was supposed to come in 12 hours. It did not come for another 35. After the emergency landing, some passengers noticed that a wing looked defective. The disruption may not have been due only to bad weather, but a defective plane as well."
Pros: "1. Comfortable. 2. Good crew 3. On time 4. No hiccups."
Cons: "1. Not having wi-fi (major) 2. No news channels in in-flight entertainment 3. No snacks"
Pros: "Qatar Airlines was amazing food was great and the flight attendants catered to passenger needs."
Pros: "Liked the entertainment options with a large movie catalog."
Cons: "Customer service by phone, boarding process, width of seats, speed of cabin service."
Pros: "The crew and the airline was a great experience."
Cons: "I wish there was more leg space between the seats."
Pros: "Qatar Airways was very cooperative and kind enough to switch my flight 4 hours earlier with alternative flight free when I asked them to change it if that possible. They did so with kind and smile within 10 minutes while it was very difficult due to boarding time and luggage switching Boarding was okay Crew also was kind, responsive, Food was great Entertsinment was the issue due to airplane size and airplane facilities like Internet and entertainment tv screen was not in your seat Thank you so much Qatar Airways"
Pros: "Entertainment and food"
Cons: "Could not sleep... Need more room"
Pros: "airline service"
Pros: "Crew was phenomenal. Felt safe and cared fir on flight."
Cons: "Food choices seemed a little under the Qatar standard considering the high level of quality for other aspects of this airline. Not airlines fault but took too long to get yo terminal at IAD Leg room a little tight in economy of 777"
Pros: "For a change, I found the cabin crew extremely courteous and helpful. A remarkable change from the last so many flights flown across different airlines."
Cons: "The entertainment system is poor. Hardly any movies/shows worth watching. The leg space sucks. Agree I was flying cattle class, but even then it seemed to be too cramped."
Pros: "Better than costumer service in Thailand"
Cons: "Thx crew seemed s little slow (almost 2 hours) with getting us dinner for a very late night flight (10:45 pm). It just makes for not very much time to sleep."
Cons: "You didn’t change my ticket within 24 hours of booking and I have to loose that ticket I didn’t fly back hime"
Cons: "WiFi poor."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "The entertainment tv didn’t stay in the right position and the touchscreen didn’t respond all the time."
Cons: "I asked for water three times, three different crew members but never got the water during the flight to Dubai, when alighting that's when i asked for the water again from a crew who was manning the business class section and got it."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and patient inspite of the flight being full."
Cons: "The boarding at DBX was chaotic. It was disorganized and not executed properly - boarding was not done by priority or by zone in the begininng. Unaccompanied minors were boarded at the end, they should have been boarded first and their cabin baggage take care of first. The quality of food is average ... it used to be much better. No alcohol was served in the flight; was not provided even after requesting one; didn't bother to ask again. The choice of movies were limited"
Cons: "Former travel to Dubai offered food vouchers. No vouchers given and the layover was over 5 hours and portions were smaller on the plane. Bad in flight entertainment screens."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Food was the worst, service extremely poor"
Pros: "I was upgraded to an exit row when the staff saw how tall ineas"
Cons: "Entertainment system control broken"
Pros: "seating availability Food service"
Pros: "The flight updates, services (meals and refreshments)"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Pros: "Emirates allows you to start inflight entertainment as soon as you board and are seated. That makes any wait time more enjoyable."
Cons: "This particular flight was full. And I believe they may have been understaffed. I received my special meal but then the drink service didn't come around until most people were finished with their regular meal service. They didn't serve drinks and meals at the same time, for some reason. And the meal clean up took place way after everyone finished eating. It was an unusually long wait. This was surprising coming from an Emirates flight."
Pros: "The flight staff was great! Overall service was great."
Cons: "Ahmedabad and Dubai do not have good line control all passengers gather in the front. Washington Dulles has lanes for zones that is orderly."
Pros: "From the top to the bottom, everything was excellent except for..."
Cons: "...the boarding, which was somewhat chaotic. An announcement was repeatedly made that the final boarding call for the flight had been issued, and suddenly the entire assembly of passengers waiting before the gate stood up en masse and moved toward the gate, where we ended up standing for twenty or so minutes while the passengers were boarded in sequence according to seat assignment. I'm certain that Emirates has a protocol for gate announcements, but one of their employees certainly didn't know what it was."
Pros: "the amazing atttention from the staff and the cleanliness of the airline."
Cons: "the seats did not go back enough"
Pros: "The crew, overall were very alloof and disengaged. Rarely did we hear "your welcome" after saying thank you. We were made to feel as if we were interrupting their real work."
Cons: "The crew needs to remember that how consumers feel is almost as important as price. There are other choices that for air travel. It's costs nothing to smile, or to say your welcome."
Cons: "When it is a very full flight and every seat is needed, the space for passengers is very tight."
Pros: "Crew are awesome, helpful"
Cons: "Emirates pizza is not good."
Cons: "We had a long layover in Dubai and decided to go out to explore the city. When we went to go back with the same carry ons that we had been using our entire trip (with three different flights with them), They made us check in our hand luggage because it was over 7kg. When we went to talk to the person at the gate about it, he was very condescending and rude and not helpful at all. They were also not nice on the plane. Never flying again."
Pros: "Good service good leg room swift boarding and off boarding"
Pros: "Overall everything was good."
Cons: "Poor check in services in Nairobi. I waited for 1 hour and half to get my boarding pass."
Pros: "The Crew were wonderful and tried in every way to make us comfortable."
Cons: "The crew wasn't very responsive"
Pros: "The good was good and the staff treated us with respect."
Cons: "When I reached at Dubai l could not get a seat to come to Boston as they had overbooked. But it was a blessing for me as I was given a free round trip ticket from Boston to Kenya to use within one year and for that I thank you."
Pros: "comfortable and new airplane"
Cons: "Flight attendants were very rude with a very bad attitude and not friendly."
Cons: "when I arrived at seoul, incheon airport, I found that one of my gulf clubs was broken. it was the fist time that the golf club broken. I was so upset"
Pros: "Overall fully satisfied with a safe journey package"
Cons: "The technical problem with flight from Dubai to Dulles could have been resolved before boarding the flight. Crew could have been more clear on how much longer it would take to resolve the problem before and not after boarding the flight."
Pros: "I flew from Nairobi to Dubai and then to New York. Very pleasant crew, beautiful plane inside and out, excellent food in the plane. Overall a very pleasant experience. Also the Airbus 380 is just superb. Such a big bird that one."
Cons: "I am personally opposed to entertainment. I see it as the devil and the world's substitute for true joy that is only found in God as he is revealed in Jesus Christ. So it is sad for me to see all the entertainment centered culture. It shows itself very much in the plane. Everyone with a screen infront of them to keep them entertained. Headphones to cut you off from the fellow next to you. Some very rotten movies on there too."
Pros: "Love flight with emirates every thing is good"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crew The food The entertainment The comfortable seats"
Cons: "The airport in Dubai is a little too cold and open to catch a snooze on the floor or at a corner."
Pros: "food and drink selection was good. more new movies and television shows needed."
Pros: "Entertainment, food, comfort were great."
Cons: "Crew is always pleasant but they tend to not manage the other guests when necessary. Many of the other guests would congregate at the rest rooms, did not know how to use the restrooms with out leave it a mess or remains in the toilet and took over an hour sometimes to respond to service requests. In fact the crew seem to disappear for an hour or more after each "dispensing" of food or beverages. Parents need to be spoken to regarding children. There are many people on the plane and children including babies tend to be as loud as they like. That is not considerate for more than 95% of the other passengers. When boarding other passengers need guidance to move things along better. There tend to be clogs at points because passengers try to do too much with the baggage. This is the same for getting off. Passengers would push their way through others to get to bags they stowed many rows behind them. Other passengers need to be curteous of others entering and leaving seats. Getting up and moving is the best options. Many people will sit there and you have to climb other them."
Pros: "Everything was fine. Food, crew, service, entertainment were all wonderful."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "Expensive ticket....i paid $500 more than other airlines to get better service but was disapointed nothing special i could have saved $$$ by flying other cariers."
Cons: "Again, I was requested to move seats midway through a flight. A mother of 4 was separated from two of her kids in the flight. About 7 hours into the 14 hour flight, I was asked to move so that one of the children could be placed closer to his mother. Again, I was put in the situation of giving up my own comfort and moving to a middle seat, or standing my ground and disappointing/frustrating the mother. I made the choice to move. But it was disappointing that there was even a need to make these changes. There should be clearer ways for families to book together online."
Pros: "Seat spacing is better than other carriers, food is tastier with more choice. These flights have so many people, all of air flights were full and the crew did a good job managing the numbers."
Cons: "I just felt the crew was busy but not overly caring, maybe a bit surly."
Pros: "Great service, wonderful / super attentive crew"
Cons: "Needed an extra blanket as it was very cold & they had run out of blankets (not a big deal, just a small comfort). Had a few minor issues with movies loading, but also not a big deal."
Pros: "The aircraft is always clean and the people are great"
Cons: ". The food was gross this time around. I usually love it, but the main dish was lacking and no veggie option."
Pros: "we were updated with info every moment there was a change."
Pros: "staff were organized and prompt"
Pros: "Staff's courteousy."
Cons: "I travel quite a bit internationally and never experienced Emirates. Never have I seen that many crying children under the age of 2 on a flight before. It was constant crying. I would suggest placing all people with small children in one area of the flight instead of spreading them out throughout economy."
Pros: "Excellent service by cabin crew especially Wail"
Pros: "spacious seats"
Cons: "layover time to the next connecting flight."
Pros: "meals are pretty good, though repetitive"
Cons: "old plane, connections at IST are inconvenient and the airport is in terrible condition. Flight was crowded and boarding was chaotic. Ran out of meals. Plane was quite hot (and I'm usually cold). Overall poor quality."
Cons: "The seats in business class were not suitable for sleeping even though I paid top dollar and it was a 4:45am flight. They let a random person on the plane and had to do a full security sweep before taking off."
Pros: "Food and service were great."
Cons: "The usb charger was broken"
Pros: "My experience on Turkish Airlines exceeded expectations. Boarding was smooth and the flight was on time. Service was excellent and staff professional. The crew was courteous but the hostesses could try smiling a bit more. Their courtesy was appreciated but it felt very methodical, more of an obligation and not spontaneous. The pilot did a great introduction and gave information about the trip. Also the plane toilets were clean compared to other companies. I expected to see a wider selection of more recent and award winning movies. Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again."
Cons: "I had a 4 hour layover. The airport is not organized. It was impossible to find any Turkish Airline help desks and personnel. I definitely would have expected to see more ground personnel helping travellers."
Pros: "The crew, food, and choice of entertainment."
Cons: "Customer service in Istanbul was tribble . No help at all with any kinds of questions and issues. The airport staff were unbelievably rude and non responsive, as if they were there to turn off the passengers. Will never travel with any airlines that has to stop in Turkey"
Pros: "Everything, Good service, timely and on pojnt"
Cons: "There was a slight delay on landing"
Pros: "Lots of room on the plane, light meals but good, helpful service"
Pros: "Friendly airlines and service was excellent."
Cons: "No anything"
Cons: "The food wasnt good"
Pros: "Everything was great. Would never fly another airline if Turkish was available."
Cons: "You must hear this all the time. An eleven hour flight is torture. Maybe a little more padding in the seat cushions. Still, You Are GREAT"
Cons: "Worst boarding as flight was late and who ever was boarding us was rude, I get in my seat was taken, flight attendants were the rudest Iv ever dealt with, anything I asked for was not available, air conditioning was not working in the middle part of the plane. I could not stand sitting so I stood in the back the WHOLE 10 hour flight from the heat. I was so uncomfortable I will definitely take action on this one. I will demand a full refund the whole way I was extremely upset."
Pros: "Great crew. Pretty warm, helpful, friendly and very professional. Enjoyed the entertainment too n the flight arrived in good time."
Cons: "My entertainment system did not work and the crew did not do anything to try to fix it"
Pros: "Food / service / timeliness"
Pros: "It was an excellent trip with THY. The crew was very attentive for the requests and the needs of the passengers at all time (regardless of inconsiderate traveler). Since it is usually too expensive for me to travel with THY, one still can get a great deal if looked for deals in advance. Some of the best things about traveling with THY are being able to check 2 bags, unlimited drinks and food at all times and more leg room. Max"
Pros: "I do not like anything"
Cons: "They serve Turkish delight half of them get half not including me When I ask he told me you are sleeping .the time they serve she was air hostess how he can told I was sleeping point to be noted. Same thing they serve pouches I do not get.i will never fly this air line SOHAIL"
Pros: "For a long flight, most were able to sleep. The crew was very busy during the first couple hours and also very present. Movie choices were wonderful. I was lucky enough to have an empty seat next to me although when the man in front of me reclined, his head was practically in my lap."
Cons: "After first service, the crew disappeared. I get very thirsty and was in need of water more often than they were willing to pass it out. I did not go to galley to request additional water, which likely would have been provided! Passengers made a MESS in aisles & lavs, which was not picked up thru the flight."
Pros: "The flight was very pleasant. I was traveling wit my 2-year old and they brought him a little Batman vs Superman bag with an inflatable airplane, airplane binoculars, and slap on watch. They also brought him an activity book. I thought this was a lovely touch that helped keep my child entertained on our long flight. Adults also received a goody bag with grippy socks, slippers, eye mask, lip balm, toothbrush with toothpaste, and ear plugs. It was a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "Someone was escorted off our plane when our flight landed for unknown reasons. This was the day after the terrorist attacks in Belgium at the airport and metro, and the crew asked the person being escorted off the plane if he had taken all of his bags. If this person was a terrorist, do you really think he would just tell you if he left a bag of explosives on board?"
Pros: "The dinner was good but they ran out of chicken immediately so there was only beef. Meal service is very slow and it takes them on average an hour to take the trays away. The lemonade is very good"
Cons: "No leg room. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "All of the above , on this flight. it was just as expected and better. Thank you. Thought you might want to know my opinion of our flight from Washington to Istanbul on Jan.27.2016, it was the worst flight on any airline we had before. The crew was unprofessional at best, no one knew his or hers duty. the most was the cook who took the orders for food and 2 hours later came to apologize that he did not have the food or that the food was ruined. It was like a joke all along the flight. I hope the at crew do not work for your company anymore."
Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "Excellent service"
Pros: "The flight was long and the comfort somewhat limited. I was expecting that and I was not disappointed. However, when we reached IAD, the customs check was very quick and the luggage was already there. A very good ending to an arduous trip. Entertainment was first rate and the food prepared with some degree of skill."
Cons: "flight crew did not make much of an effort to secure my purchases from the duty free store. The items never made it and refund had to be issued. Not their fault, but no real effort to contact the store and have the items brought to me...... my fault really,,,, otherwise I would recommend this airline to anyone flying overseas."
Cons: "Waiting time was too long between 2 flights"
Pros: "Good flight."
Cons: "Food was not good."
Pros: "Usb charging, entertainment was nice."
Cons: "Ran out of chicken dishes- only had beef to offer. Seats were slightly uncomfortable. Crew was not very friendly/smiley."
Pros: "Loved the food service."
Cons: "The cabin was very hot? How do they work like that? I'm surprised the flight attendants didn't get heat stroke. Anyway, I suppose its cultural as I noticed a lot of places overly heated in turkey."
Pros: "Food and drink made two long trips very comfortable."
Cons: "My trip originated at Ivato airport in Antananarivo, where even with only one checked bag weighing 12 kg, and the proper carry on, I was harassed for bribes. An hour after clearing security, I was called down to the baggage area, where after emptying my 12 kg bag, "national police" lost my transit tag for final destination in US. Turkish Air employees made the extra effort to print out a new one, but I was asked for "gifts" or "rhum" by 3 different Ivato police, baggage boys, etc."
Pros: "Staff was welcoming, accommodating and very courteous. The seats were comfortable and they had a great selection of movies to keep me occupied on 2 overnight 8 and 10 hour flights. Food was good too!"
Pros: "food good, lots of selections. liked the movies/tv shows. seats were fine, not too much wiggle room but okay crew was great. very attentive and helpful. no attitude like you get on domestic type US flights"
Cons: "too much lemon smell in bathroom."
Pros: "Good service on board."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Not comfortable"
Cons: "food and entertainment package was not at all good. co-passenger drinks heavily and makes me uncomfortable as she was totally unbalance"
Cons: "no leg room entertainment was lacking..."
Pros: "When they did speak clear English they shouted at passengers to 'Shut Up and you'll wait'."
Cons: "Counter people at Turkish airlines in Istanbul told us to 'Shut Up and you'll wait'."
Pros: "The flight crew was great. Food was excellent and very little turbulence on this flight."
Cons: "We missed the flight due to Turkish airline airport staff being incompetent. Flight was delayed to 4 pm from 12:35 the day before and we did not leave until closer to 6 or 7 pm. I would not recommend flying into Istanbul as the airport seems to be very disorganized, and might not totally be the fault of the airline. We waited for 3 hours to get new boarding passes for a new flight and then after waiting 3 more hours in the hotel line, Turkish airlines said "we are out of hotels" and left a large number of customers stranded at the airport. When trying to get reimbursed for the hotel, the staff at the airport was clueless. I won't be flying Turkish Airlines again."
Cons: "By far Turkish Airlines has the least amount of leg room available on an international flight (coach class) that I've ever traveled . . . and I'm saying that as a career pilot. If you are over 6' tall, you will be in agony on any flight that crosses the pond (I traveled on their Airbus A330 and Boeing 737 . . . same story). My tailbone was pegged to the back of my seat, yet my knees were still smooshed into the seat in front of me. I was absolutely miserable. I ended up standing in the back next to the toilets for over 2.5 hours of the 10 hour flight because that was more comfortable than sitting in this cattle car."
Pros: "I enjoyed the meals and the service,"
Cons: "The zipper in my new suitcase was broken at the IAD airport."
Pros: "Great hot meals and in-flight entertainment Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Best of the best so far!"
Pros: "I didn't like there service b/c they weren't helpful at all. Also I had my baby with me and they didn't give her anything to play with as usually airlines do."
Pros: "Wifi on some flights"
Pros: "from the people in the airport to the air crew, they provide a great service! further than any other airline. I have fly twice with them and is always a pleasure."
Cons: "Selection of movies can be better!"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No wifi on the plane"
Pros: "Amazing service Great Food Best attutude in the sky (flight attendants)"
Cons: "The heat before take off"
Pros: "Service and other legs more uptight crew set bad tone while getting a stretch near bath rooms -12 hour flight!"
Cons: "Crew was not so friendly"
Pros: "Seats were TOO close, my knees were jammed into a seat back for 11 hours and the people next to me were incorigable."
Pros: "Food was excellent, well presented. Nice crew. It's the little extra touches that make this airline nice. Bathrooms were large and well kept cleaned."

Cons: "No entertainment option was avail except WiFi (T-Mobile) which wasn’t free"
Cons: "90 minute delay"
Pros: "Flying Delta’s always a treat after our KLM connection. Everything is better! The staff in particular are always outstanding in comparison. Great job guys! :-)"
Cons: "Really not much. A few more media entertainment options perhaps."
Pros: "all good"
Cons: "Missed the flight due to the sheer unhelpfulness and incompetence of the gate personnel. They would not let me board, since I was about 10 minutes late. THEN THE PLANE WAS DELAYED FOR ABOUT 2 HOURS!!! I was stranded in NY, overnight, and had to pay hundreds of dollars for a train ticket and a cab."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "It would have been better if the flight wasn’t 3 hours late."
Pros: "The check in counter personnel was VERY UNHELPFUL. I was running late to previous Delta flight baggage delay. The counter person would not let me check in even though I still had good 45 mins before take off. AND THE PLANE WAS DELAYED BY 40 MINUTES ANYWAY! I never made the flight, had to take train."
Cons: "The entire Delta customer service was a nightmare. Delayed flights, literally lying supervisor who escalated a dispute, absurdly poor service. ASSISTING A PASSENGER WITH A TRANSFER TO ANOTHER DELTA FLIGHT AFTER THE FIRST ONE WAS DELAYED IS "NOT A GUARANTEED SERVICE". Seriously, it is basic courtesy!"
Pros: "The flight was on time and quick."
Cons: "the number of kids......not too fond. :/"
Cons: "If there could have been some sort of services to take travelers to their connecting flight, for cases of really short time window of course, it’d be extremely helpful."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. On time. Entertainment was outstanding. Made the trip “fly” by!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Everything was great."
Pros: "I always appreciate in-flight television even on short flights."
Cons: "Very tight seating."
Pros: "I love Delta! Always professional, efficient and polite. They disappoint on this round-trip flight. They are my go-to carrier. When I call the people whom I speak to are always very polite and efficient"
Cons: "The person next to me was a very large individual and the seats were not wide. This phenomenon had nothing to do with Delta as a carrier, however."
Pros: "Everything was great everyone was fantastic. F"
Pros: "Not sure why this flight was delayed inbound. But it made the departure late by over 30 minutes."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable and didn’t mind staying with the back upright. Flight attendants veery friendly and boarding was fast and easy."
Cons: "Headrest was too short and there’s no seat back screen. More communication from the cockpit at the end would have been nice. Announcements were very hard to hear over the background plane noise."
Cons: "Never told why we were delayed by more than 90 minutes"
Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly and got us to our destination"
Cons: "No food, no outlets, a terrible delayed not explained to passengers."
Pros: "Nothing.. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral."
Cons: "Everyrhing. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Unexplained delays, lack of transfer services (there was no separate connections security screening; passengers were required, after a redeye flight and customs, to switch floors and stand in long lines with general security. Also, no beverages of any kind were offered."
Cons: "The airline booked us on two flights from SLC to BWI. Unfortunately, our seats on our original connection were released so when we arrived at our gate our only option was to split up and take middle seats - even though we had paid over $100 ea. for upgrades. Delta offered nothing for this. One of the flight attendants was in a terrible mood - she was cold and rude and would not even look at passengers - which her fellow crewmates noticed and tried to compensate for."
Pros: "The staff was wonderful and the flight was smooth"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Seat was very cramped and I want able to be comfortable at all. I couldn't even sit back I the seat!"
Cons: "JFK was depressing but not Delta’s problem."
Pros: "Delta is not a good place to be"
Cons: "Delta is not good on customer service"
Pros: "Snacks & beverages on a 1 hour flight. Very nice crew"
Cons: "Older plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "Kyle was our flight attendant. He was great. Attentive the whole trip and served us water and snacks."
Pros: "I missed my flight and was not able to rebook any of it, losing 600 dollars..."
Pros: "Nice crew, comfortable"
Cons: "Had to check in my carry on because there was "no space" left but after me were some people who could go in with their carry ons"
Pros: "I am 6’3” and have difficulty with leg room on planes. Staff help me out by moving my son and I to Comfort seating row."
Pros: "Where the flight attendants on my AeroMexico portion were authentically compassionate, the flight attendants for delta were superficial. The flight attendant,while serving us drinks, started saying what great passengers we were but her flight from Dallas the day before was definitely a feeling the effects of the full moon. This was our first interaction with a flight attendant. She had no basis for saying we were great and as we didn't have a relationship other than ordering drinks she had no basis for complaining about her Dallas to us. She would leave it to us that she was being put upon by the customers that she was getting paid to serve. Where the Aeromexico flight attendant genuinely enjoyed serving her customers."
Cons: "They forced everyone in the third zone to check our hand carry and there was no entertainment."
Cons: "Terrible staff"
Cons: "Whatever hack airline you are contracting with to do shuttle flights is terrible. Both the flight itself and the customer handling. If I ever see the option "operated by endeavor air" I am avoiding at all costs."
Pros: "very little"
Cons: "Could they make sears smaller? The plane was really old too."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The economy plus wasn't nearly as nice as any other airlines. It gave the least amount of extra leg room and the only other amenity they gave was a toothbrush. Even United economy plus is bigger. Plus if you want to change anything you have to pay include just to try and go stand by on an earlier flight."
Pros: "Had a chance to download the entertainment app during layover, so could take advantage of movies available on second flight. Crew still good; gate attendants friendly; snacks/drinks readily available."
Pros: "Comfortable seating and roomy"
Pros: "Excellent flight crew, good selection of snacks, excellent seat and leg room."
Cons: "Lavatory was unusually smelly no charging port"
Pros: "Delta is definitely the jewel of commercial airlines. I understand making money depends on how many bodies you can transport at one time. But as a large man the seat size and leg room could be improved. I unfortunately cant afford first class to remedy this problem."
Pros: "Getting on board was smooth and efficient. Service was friendly on flight. Arrived on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "My flight from ATL to BWI was horrible. It was not a Delta plane. Possibly borrowed from SpiritAirlines, which is an airline I will never fly again even if offered a free flight. That's how strongly I feel about their planes and service. I was seated in a 2across row where the seats were small and my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me the entire flight. I'll grant you I am a big girl at 6' 250 however the first leg of my flight from FLL to ATL which WAS on a Delta plane, was fine. I did not feel smashed into the seat. For the money, I feel like I am due more than being locked into the seat unable to move more than 1/2 inch for an entire flight. Thankfully the flight was under 2 hours."
Cons: "After checking in at a kisok I had to wait in a huge line for over 20 minutes just to drop the bag. This the second time I have had this experience with them."
Pros: "Nothing to speak of. Nothing exceptional from any other airline - basic"
Cons: "Our carry-on luggage was taken away from us because the gate agent decided it looked too big. A family of four with luggage larger than ours was allowed to carry theirs on. Our luggage was then sent down to the baggage carousel at Baltimore. We took carry-on to avoid this. I don't think we will fly Delta again."
Pros: "Easy boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly on bot departure and return flights. Will make me reconsider Air France in the future."
Pros: "More leg room"
Pros: "The seats, staff, entertainment, particularly liked that you served hot chocolate! The staff were very polite, friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Food -vegan menu was bad for n the outgoing flight, better on the incoming flight. No vegan food available on domestic fight. Sitting in the aisle seat meant often people pushing past your seat."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The time. The flight was late for 1 hour. I miss everything and also I get very late to our Airbnb and I was with my family and child"
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"
Cons: "the tray was broken and the water felt all over. the flight was 1 hr delayed. All of us stood the 1 hr waiting to know what's next. We could sit."
Cons: "Tell me i would misst the next flight and that my beg will not go to the final airport."
Pros: "Incredible staff. Super polite"
Pros: "Crew was good, seat was not, it was freezing cold and one little blanket was inadequate!"
Cons: "Provide another blanket when needed, was wearing shorts and a short sleeve shirt."
Pros: "Had decent room space seats comfortable"
Cons: "My luggage could have arrived for a start"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful in all respects."
Cons: "Not getting everyone standing in line to board one hour and 10 minutes before scheduled departure."
Pros: "crew was great, seats were comfortable"
Cons: "departure board listed flight as being boarded and gate closed hour before flight leading to confusion and standing in queue for over an hour, part of food was frozen and inedible, paid for upgraded seat which turned out to be by bathroom smells were as bad as you can imagine"
Cons: "Crew forced me to change my upgraded comfort seat to accommodate a 12 year old who they knew was going to be airsick. So I spent the first half of the flight next to a vomiting girl. Only after I asked to file a complaint, they allowed me one of two empty seats in premium. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the food was excellent."
Pros: "Crew members"
Cons: "Up to 1 hour late and they leaved my baggage in Paris"
Pros: "The staff were very helpful and professional. The air hostesses regularly checked if I was ok and showed concern when I wasn’t. They made what seemed a bad situation seem bearable."
Cons: "The food was not very nice and the option I wanted had run out. The entertainment was faulty and had to be reset several times. The comfort was below standard and needs to be improved."
Cons: "Missed the flight due to late landing from earlier connection"
Pros: "I was given a great seat and the food was OK- not the Air France food of 5 years ago but still good"
Cons: "I didn't really use the in flight entertainment - the usual movies, tv etc"
Cons: "10 minutes late to the airport....... No help, no refund, no nothing. Never using you again"
Cons: "Flying back to US, passsengers get charged for their luggage. Which this is not informed to us, neither On our email nor when we were checking ( for free) in Us"
Pros: "Food and wine was very good. Music selection was excellent."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Cons: "Told us to get in line for boarding and review our tickets and then made us stand there for 75 minutes before boarding."
Cons: "Because of change in plane..bad choice of seat for long legs of husband...then late in Atlanta and very late into DC"
Pros: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great. The plane was not so full, so I hope business improves so we can keep it going. Very smooth flight, with good and friendly crew."
Cons: "Everything. The crew seemed to skip over me and my husband multiple times. So we sat there with garbage the whole flight. My entertainment was broken and they had no solution but giving me $30 to use at the duty free shop the same day as the flighty. I paid extra for premium seating in an exit row and that was their idea of fair compensation. The crew ran out of vegetarian food so I didn’t eat anything but cold stale bread. The crew was non-existent most of the flight."
Pros: "Absolutely everything perfect."
Cons: "Through my own fault I ordered a different seat instead of window seat. :)"
Pros: "nice drink selection on board flights"
Cons: "My pregnant wife was downgraded from business to economy 20 minutes before departure because the airline made a mistake with the reservation for our puppy traveling in the cabin with us. If this were not enough, the airline also lost one of our bags so this week we have to file for compensation for both begin downgraded and for the contents of our 30 kilo bag which never made it to Ho Chi Minh. Air France was a complete and total disaster and I would strongly recommend all friends and colleagues to find alternative airlines for travel"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the plane was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Worse food I ever had on a flight ( a small bowl of lentils and some bread) Movie selection was poor, although not a big deal"

Cons: "Waited a while before take off."
Pros: "La entrada"
Cons: "El resto de cosas"
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Pros: "Super fast boarding and smooth takeoff"
Pros: "Punctual, great food in Premium Economy, friendly crew."
Cons: "Took over 75 minutes (after arrival) for baggage to arrive on the carousel. Boarding area did not have well-defined lanes for different groups."
Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly. Plane was clean. And food was served quickly without the hassle of ordering from a menu and paying. And it was delicious. Best airline food I’ve had in a long time. The chocolate dessert was incredible. And a coffee to go with it. Made a three hour flight very pleasant."
Cons: "All airlines need to remove a row of seats and give everyone just a bit more legroom."
Pros: "The crew was good and very good pilot's"
Cons: "No leg room between seats"
Pros: "Crew very professional and nice food Boarding process well organized"
Cons: "Poor seat comfort in business class and no entertainment for a flight lasting more than 1h"
Pros: "Option to upgrade seat which I didn't take but might for outbound red eye flight in future."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Food was AWFUL! Better to serve nothing"
Pros: "Great people"
Cons: "It was an hour late"
Pros: "The time of the flight was great as well as the arrival time and subsequent connections to Paris. Enjoyed the rather full line of in flight beverages!"
Cons: "Leaving late seemingly without reason from Paris - chaotic boarding line in Paris with difficult to hear PA. Seats were ok'ish but than again, it's a 45 minute flight. The sandwich was gross and I'm somewhat known as a person who eats everything!"
Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good. I did not find the seats comfortable."

Pros: "Good seat near the front."
Cons: "Delayed arrival by 30 minutes."
Pros: "food was good, leg room was decent for economy"
Cons: "didn't have usb charging ports in the seats on one of the flights, in flight entertainment can improve."
Pros: "Panamá airport is a disaster, unorganized and dirty"
Cons: "Panamá airport"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Too many business class seats and the plane is so big it basically feels like flying on coach. You have two seats next to the window so it's exactly the same when trying to get up than in economy class with a passenger stuck next to you"
Pros: "Excellent choice of movies. Great service. Friendly crew."
Cons: "I requested a lacto-ovo vegetarian meal, which I received. However, it appears the meal was also vegan. Normally, that would be okay except one of the two standard meal choices was also vegetarian and seemed much better. Since I had selected lacto-ovo vegetarian, it seems I was not allowed to select the standard vegetarian option. Hard not to have cheese on an Air France flight - just saying :-)"
