Cons: "Because of delay they left me to sleep on the airport in Istanbul. I am pregnant and nobody didn't wanted to help me at transfer desk. Last time in my life with Turkish Airlines."

Cons: "old plane . . . showing wear and tear. no wifi"

Pros: "The food. The entertainment."
Cons: "Needs better seats! More room for long flights!"

Pros: "Amazing service ! Great food! Great amenities ! Very clean!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The food and staff were great. The seats were rather comfortable and the flight was very pleasant."
Cons: "The entertainment system was of an older style wherein we had a choice of 3 movies and 7 "radio stations" across 15 or so "TV channels" rather than the fuller suite of entertainment options I'm used to on a Turkish Airlines flight."

Pros: "flight was on time helpful staff nice meals"

Pros: "Entertainment on long haul flights is top notch. Selection is incredible just bring your own headphones if you wanna be able to hear anything. Food is the best out of any other carrier. I've seriously been to full service restaurants with less tasty and well prepared foods."
Cons: "Seats are hilariously small. I know you're thinking "they're all like that." They're NOTHING like any other airlines. I've flown the following for reference: Lufthansa Air Swiss Delta Air France Air Arabia Saudi Airlines Egypt Air and a couple more I can't think of right now. I'm a very medium sized build and really short (5' 6") and I was so uncomfortable I wanted to (and probably will) cancel my return flight with them. My wife's back is still hurting from that flight. The staff are just plain awful save for 2 flight attendants. Out of 2 flights so far. I was told afterwards that this is commonplace when flying Turkish Airlines. For fairness sake I should mention that both Egypt Air and Saudi Airlines were worse. Whatever money you think you're saving by flying this atrocity you're gonna be spending on fixing your neck and back. Spend the extra and go with Swiss or even Delta. Avoid this rubbish"

Pros: "EVerything"

Pros: "Entertainment system Availability of staff Cleanliness of plane"
Cons: "It was extremely hot the whole flight everyone was uncomfortable Coach seats need more leg space and the recliner on my seat didn't work"

Pros: "The plane was late taking off which made the connection in Istanbul tight. The fact that there were no announcemts made it somewhat stressful finding the gate which was very far from the location where we deplaned. Other than that, the food was great and the staff pleasant enough."
Cons: "2 times my movie screen didn't work. One time I was able to shift over to another seat and use a different iPad. Good movie selection."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "We were flying to JFK from TLV via IST. First flight was canceled and then re-scheduled after landing we were stuck for more than 3 hours inside airplane in Istanbul, then we were stuck inside the plane for 6 hours !!!!! Nightmare"

Pros: "My flight was delayed to begin with and then from turkey to islamabad the flight was diverted to karachi and due to unknow reason and i spent 12 hours at the airport without because the flight attendents reached their limit. Worst airline."

Cons: "Cramped. This is how I would describe my flight. Very tight. Seats close together, a bit claustrophobic. Made the 9 hour flight seem twice as long. Plane was an Airbus 300 (I think) Service was fine and attendants friendly but I'd think twice about flying long-distance with Turkish again on this Airbus model."

Pros: "Food was great! Drinks was varied The crew was very nice and thoughtful"
Cons: "There was no entertainment since the system didn't work all the flight. All the boarding things was very poor both sides of flight. Big delay!!"

Pros: "Turkish airlines never gave me notice or explanation. At least Kayak gave me notice and i appreciate."

Cons: "For example the menu has fish or chicken but majority of passesengers did not have chance to get fish due to the limited number. Other than everything was great"

Pros: "Unnecessary delays, very rude and inconsiderate crew, both inflight and at the Istanbul Airport. They provided no accommodations for those that missed connections and had very poor organizations. Also, as a physician that was called to a medical emergency on the flight, I received not even a thanks. Also, they were very delayed in getting the medical supplies to us physicians and requires ID prior to opening the emergency kit which definitely delayed care!"

Cons: "Delays, inconsiderate crew, poorly managed medical situations, no hotel accommodations with prolonged flight delays, poor communication to passengers"

Cons: "the 7 hr delay and having to wait in line for 2 hrs to rebook in stead of being able to call a number."

Cons: "Was horrible, I felt like I was sitting in a back seat of two door car with no space for 9 hours and no way out, I refuse to fly Turkish ever again pay the extra $500 to fly with Emirates it Qutar well worth it than this place, food was discusting they shouldn't be a air line PIA is better"

Cons: "I miss my flight from Istanbul to sofia due a technical issues leaving JFK International Airport from NY and no one was waiting for us to make sure we can get to our connect fligt on time. Thank you Turkish Airlines for letting me stay 11 hours on your stupid airport and missing one day of may vacation. I will never ever again flight with you!"

Pros: "Top notch"

Cons: "The seats were close together and I felt crowded"

Pros: "Great movie selection. Some of the staff ( only some ) are really nice."
Cons: "Turkish airlines must have tried hard to squeeze in a few extra seats. Legroom used to be little but manageable. Now it is just painful. Also the food or service is not what it used to be."

Pros: "Cheap"

Pros: "Everything good"

Pros: "Served us a meal and snack, which is much appreciated. Both were quite good for airplane food. Smooth flight. Excellent entertainment. There were actually QUALITY movies to watch, which made the time go by fast."
Cons: "It seemed difficult to get the attention of a stewardess for another drink. I guess I could have hit the button calling for someone, but I always feel like too much of a diva by doing that."

Pros: "great experience! I will highly recommend Turkish Airlines! Loved the slippers! Great food!"

Pros: "Movie selection was good"
Cons: "Tthe seats and surrounding space was small. The food was bad."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The food is really good, they still are trying to do airline travel like it used to be - with great service and proper meals, menus and snacks. Lovely staff too."
Cons: "Inadequate space for rollie luggage - most compartments don't accomodate - and the flight attendants became frazzled as time went on - sometimes they were rude when you asked for water or a soda - I think because they would be coming by with a drinks cart in a second, but we don't always know that."

Cons: "Two women fight over space the entire flight and the flight crew were indifferent about it."

Pros: "Good experience flying the airline including: Checkin process including securing me the last exit row seat Boarding went quickly Meals were plenty and good - also had a menu Provided a personal case with things like socks etc Connection was smooth for me Customer service in general was good"
Cons: "Only negative experience was that I had a connecting flight with a small window (1 hour) in Istanbul and my bag didn't make the same flight as me so I was without it for a half day. However they handled the situation well - knew where my bag was, sent it on the next flight and delivered it to my hotel so it wasn't too inconveniencing."

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Crew could have been friendlier. Also they should come around more often for trash collection"

Pros: "Very pleasent crew, yummy foods and excellent trıp"

Pros: "Seat was private, comfortable, accommodating. Service was really great, food was delicious. totally nice flight."
Cons: "It took a bit long to get a drink on the flight (over two hours) but that is probably because it's not really in the Turkish religious culture to drink ... other than that, it was a beautiful flight!"

Pros: "good food"
Cons: "seat spacing too crowded"

Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "I wish there was a wife"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That every person we spoke to since getting notification the original flight was delayed lied to us and misled us and failed to help us. Our vacation was completely ruined by booking with this airline."

Cons: "It's as tight as WOW airlines and they are out of business. Knees crashing into the seat in front of you. Fly first class or a different airline."

Pros: "Only use this airline if you are just flying to Iceland or taking advantage of their stopover in Iceland option. Otherwise choose another airline."
Cons: "Serve food like most transatlantic carriers-bringing Subway Sandwiches or paying large fees for Pringle’s potato chips is beyond greedy for an airline these days. If Icelandair is that desperate for profit it makes one wonder where else they cut corners."

Pros: "The check in and boarding was easy. I imagine if you were only going to Iceland for vacation this airline would be fine- just remember to bring food on board- one of the very few airlines not to serve food on transatlantic flights-at least you do get one checked baggage allowance."
Cons: "It was my fault not to book my flight earlier with another airline. I have taken this trip several times and every airline I’ve taken previously uses newer planes and serves some food, Icelandair charges large fees for even snacks!The engine noise IN the plane was quite disturbingly loud."

Pros: "Seat a little hard."

Cons: "An included breakfast would have been appreciated."

Pros: "cheap"
Cons: "Being on time! Flight leaving from JFK was delayed by an hour, making my connection in Iceland very tight (had to run), and my checked bag did not make it on my 2nd flight. My checked bag did not make it to my destination for over 24 hours later."

Cons: "temperature in the airplane cabin was much too warm with too little air flow. Very uncomfortable."

Pros: "It was punctual"
Cons: "I was sitting in the middle seat"

Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable; no complimentary snacks."

Pros: "Clean and pleasant"
Cons: "Poor food service."

Pros: "I love that the crew hands out water bottles as passengers board the plane. I also appreciated that during the drink service, one of the flight attendants not only gave me a drink but offered to refill my water bottle as well. I hate having to ask for water (especially because it usually comes in those tiny cups), and I also hate having to be dehydrated during my flight."

Pros: "Good leg room for an economy flight"

Cons: "Our flight to Reykjavík landed 30 minutes before our connecting flight to Zurich was scheduled to depart. we got off the plane and ran to the gate with several other passengers to catch our flight. The crew closed the gate and would not let us board even though the plane was still there. Other airlines wait for passengers from a connecting flight. This is unacceptable and we will never fly Icelandair again."

Cons: "on a five hour flight I expect to get a meal."

Pros: "Flight in Saga Class was excellent. And, use of BA lounge at JFK was a real plus."
Cons: "Security was a pain with no TSA PreCheck."

Pros: "On board entertainment was good (i.e., movies, shows, etc.)"
Cons: "No food was served."

Cons: "Food and alcohol and headphones weren't free. The movies were very old."

Pros: "Smiling faces. Politeness Helpful"
Cons: "With 2 Samaung notes and 1 Tabley and 1 Lenovo PC failed to get wifi on 1st leg? Why? To Reykavik! ! Flight stewardess also failed!! With help of crew to ZH got the net halfway on second leg ...!"

Pros: "It was nice they offered us free water."
Cons: "On a 6 hour international flight it is usually customary to receive at least one meal. We were not fed anything (not even peanuts) and were unaware that this would be the case. They had the option to buy snacks, however none were appealing and all were over priced. It was a good thing I had a bag of old crumbled cookies so we could stop our stomachs from growling."

Pros: "Safe and pleasant."

Cons: "I arrived my destination 24hrs late. 2 unplanned stopovers. Terrible experience."

Pros: "All was smooth and comfortable. Thanks"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Plane was too warm. Air conditioning was set much too high. Uncomfortable to us. No way to set air vents."

Pros: "The flight was in time"
Cons: "No dinner or breakfast include."

Pros: "Service was great and all went exactly as planned. No delays!"

Pros: "Good service. Good onboard entertainment. Good seats"
Cons: "I wish I had more leg room"

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The plane was too hot, delayed take off lost luggage"

Pros: "Crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My transfer time getting onto this flight was too short and my luggage missed the plane. I was without luggage for the next 24 hours and was not offered a stipend to get basic necessities while I waited for my suitcase to arrive."

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Although I paid for a confirmed seat and chose my seat 6 months in advance, when 24 hour check-in rolled around I was told I had been moved to standby and would thus only have a seat if there were any left once everyone else had checked in. I had to wait until I arrived at the airport the day of to even find out if I had a seat. There were only two left when I checked in, so I just barely got on the flight. I had originally chosen a seat next to a friend traveling with me in the middle of the cabin, in the end I got a seat in the very back of the plane- no room in the overhead bins since they were reserved for flight equipment, couldn't recline, and was right by the kitchen, so it was too noisy to sleep. When I called customer service to try to fix all of this, in the middle of explaining my problem (after waiting on hold for an hour) I was told to stop talking and that it was the rep's turn to talk. In addition to not getting my problem resolved, he hung up on me! Worst treatment I've ever received on an airpline, and I've flown thousands of times on dozens of airlines. Once this trip is over I am never flying Icelandic again!"

Pros: "In-flight entertainment was great - lots of good choices and easy to use service."
Cons: "First flight --My seat was really uncomfortable. When the fellow in front of me moved his seat back, it pushed me into an uncomfortable position that could be rectified by pushing my seat back."

Pros: "Service was good, no real complaints"
Cons: "It was very warm, and trying to sleep while sweating is never fun....not sure why there aren't personal vents on that plane!"

Cons: "In flight entertainment systems did not work. Service came once very late into the flight. Our flight was delayed, and when we asked about our connecting, we were told over and over that the next flight was also delayed, but upon arrival we realized it was not... We missed our second flight and were rerouted through a much more efficient airline."

Pros: "I liked the idea of having a layover in Iceland."
Cons: "Really, this airline sets a new level of bad amongst a skyfull of many bad airlines. It's no longer worth the little money saved (very little) to fly on this airline."

Cons: "Leg room was very narrow. Only gave water but water was warm. Drinks are also warm and only gave 1 small cup. No free snacks."

Pros: "Cabin was new and spacious. Good free entertainment selection. Free checked bag."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours"

Pros: "Nice clean aircraft. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Food and drink not included"

Pros: "it was on time"
Cons: "you had to pay for everything...."

Pros: "quiet and clean.. no turbulence"

Cons: "I spend a lot of money on tickets and it seems like a glass of wine would be a nice gesture by the airline to say thanks for coming, we are glad you are here, relax."

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "Since the flight was not crowded, I was able to move where I could stretch out which was very nice."
Cons: "Felt crowded sitting in the middle of two people."

Pros: "Loved the northern lights on the ceiling! Good legroom, friendly staff, and easy boarding."
Cons: "I wish there had been some way to charge my phone"

Pros: "The lighting of the interior of the plane was beautiful- very friendly, great service. Even saw volcanoes in the early morning during take-off"

Cons: "no food service, but I brought my own. no entertainment at the exit seat."

Pros: "Comfort of seats and friendliness of crew"
Cons: "No food served MThe USB port did not work coming back and going only one side of the speakers was working"

Cons: "My tv screen wasn't working even after an attendant restarted it for me :( other than that everything was fine!"

Pros: "I think someone from iceland air needs to review my above reviews and make some changes"

Cons: "No leg room"

Pros: "I loved every bit of it. The best value for money I have ever had on a flight."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "the staff was the worst i've ever encountered in my life. I spoke to three people at the airport and they were the nastiest people ever. they weren't helpful when they messed up not being able to take my service dog on the carrier even though I had reserved a seat for him. They literally told me "tough shit". I lost my flight and had to book a new flight that cost me $4k with Delta."

Pros: "Had premium seat. But since you drive with the bus to the airplane you are mixed up with economy for boarding."

Pros: "We had an excellent flight! The crew of flight attendants were great! The food was delicious! The flight arrived to Budapest 30 minutes early! What more could anyone ask for? Perfect! Thank you LOT Polish Airlines!"

Cons: "Toilets was’t in service for flight from Warsaw to Lviv"

Cons: "The entertainment system didn’t work at all the whole long haul flight"

Pros: "The aircraft."
Cons: "First and last time on LOT!Boarding and flight crew rude, unhelpful. Flight late, no communication, no info at the gate. No standard communication, no info from the pilot during the flight. When the crew spoke in english or polish it was unclear. No help no info with connecting flight, missed it!"

Cons: "Sound control on the entertainment console was a bit wonky. Nothing major, just enough to be annoying until I figured the details."

Pros: "Crew was amazing.Seats are comfortable.Clean aircraft.Friendly service."

Pros: "Crew were Great."
Cons: "Warsaw airport repeats Security screening. Redundant, I don’t know all the international airports, but I know there are others who don’t do this."

Pros: "Available seats"
Cons: "Didn’t like food and they didn’t give the ear set- glad I got my own"

Cons: "one hour delete,missed connecting flight,arrived in Katowice 3 hours late,missed transportation to Ostrava."

Pros: "I love Dreamliner windows"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Cons: "The boarding and flight were late"

Pros: "like the team .drinks.food.the gift . confort .place .slept very good . thank you very much for service"

Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Horrible, lazy staff with attitude. Extremely uncomfortable seats, not working TVs , poor choice"

Cons: "Ear bud connector was broken"

Pros: "Food best airline food I have had in a long while."
Cons: "Checkin...they charged me 120USD for 2nd bag because my roll on was 3kg over. I then see all the carry on other people had was ridiculous. I got delayed by 30 odd hours 2 weeks ago by Lot airlines with no compensation, I then get charged extra 120...."

Cons: "Passenger next to me was too large and encroached on my limited space Stewards did not respond to light or request for drinks until I went to the back of plane Staff was curteous"

Cons: "Connecting flight in Warsaw was horrible. Warsaw airport is not prepared to help people that have little (1 hour) time to catch other flights. It's a nightmare."

Pros: "good"

Pros: "My flight was pretty comfortable. I had heard so many negative things about LOT Airlines, but I loved the cabin crew who were extremely courteous, and the food served was pretty good (dinner and breakfast since it was an overnight flight). The entertainment was pretty good as well; they even had some Oscar nominations like Dunkirk and Shape of Water available to watch. Overall, I was very pleased with my flight experience."
Cons: "The only thing that I was not a fan of, but which didn't bother me that much/didn't affect me that much, was that we departed from JFK in NYC *an hour late* because we boarded so late. For some people, this caused an issue with their connection in Warsaw, but for me, I luckily had a four hour layover. Still, an hour is pretty bad in terms of departure."

Pros: "Quick and good service"

Pros: "Speed of fly"
Cons: "a hard seat"

Pros: "the flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "the fact that my carry on bag was broken when we landed in Poland and no one from the staff took even a second to guide us about what can we do about it. the entertainment system was not good at all and the movie section was poor. our flight from TLV to Poland was canceled and they didn't know about it until 4 hours before the flight!!! Not sure I will fly with this airline again in the future."

Cons: "Baggage policy was confusing end I ended up with baggage fees about the same cost as the flight"

Pros: "Flight on time, comfortable, accommodating service, good food."

Pros: "The usual cramped travel but it was fine. Good movies"
Cons: "Somewhere Ipad disappeared from luggage we had checked."

Pros: "They were efficient though. So in this case I need to recognize and congratulate the crew they were there they delivered the service."
Cons: "Again same thing crew unfriendly not even the smallest smile."

Pros: "Very narrow seats in Coach."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable."

Cons: "entertainment didnt work tray tables broken"

Cons: "old aircraft enterrainment system didnt work food tray broken in many seats"

Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seat was broken and flight was delayed 45 min"

Cons: "My bag didn't arrive in Warsaw. I asked the LOT representative at JFK to verify that my bag was on the flight between NYC and Warsaw. She said that it was, but it wasn't there when I arrived"

Cons: "I'm still on this roller coaster! Initial flight delayed 3 hrs. Missed connection in Warsaw. Got on another flight with its own connection Munich then Sofia and about to miss that connection too because this flight is also delayed for no reason. Lot app doesn't work. Customer service is horrificly slow and their phone number had me on hold for over 40 min after which dropped my call"

Cons: "NYC to Warsaw, the flight was 4 hours late no voucher for food. some got it some not. i lost the flight from Warsaw to Bucharest they put me on flight from Warsaw to Vienna that flight was late as well i got to Vienna and i ran to get the flight to Bucharest. i was very tired"

Pros: "Excellent flight attentive crew. Luggage handling super fast. Crew gave out some free extras to make up for the delay."
Cons: "Weather related delay not airline dependent"

Cons: "Delayed by 2.5 hrs"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The entire flight was cancelled. I didn't receive any notification from the airline prior to my arrival at the airport."

Cons: "Flight was late to leave Warsaw, no apparent reason given."

Pros: "Excellent flight"

Pros: "Service, space, friendly, good company"
Cons: "The lia St of movies a bit small, menus could be better but they offe the essentail"

Cons: "Late as always, didnt get anything to drink from warsaw to rzeszow. Not happy at all"

Pros: "The plane loaded on time and left on time. The flight was quite smooth. Best of all, the flight attendants gave out Prince Polo chocolate bars, the best candy in the world."
Cons: "The plane did lack a photo of John Paul II, though he was featured extensively in the airline magazine. Further, there wasn't much in the way of traditional Polish music playing during the boarding process. These aren't huge problems, though. Still a great experience."

Cons: "After spending almost $1,400 on my ticket to Poland, the last thing I would expect for such a long trip would be a broken seat that didn't recline. Being 6'7"in height and having the seat in front of me reclined I had to sit crouched for over 9hrs.When I informed the stewardess, not much concern was given and the alternative offered was worse because it was a middle seat with less space knowing that there were available seats in premium class. No effort was made to accommodate me knowing that the trip was long and sitting with my legs crouched could cause a health issue. A working seat is not a luxury, it's basic equipment that you expect to be functional not broken."

Pros: "787 is a great plane."
Cons: "No headsets were provided to the passengers for listening to movies. (Had to use my own.) Terrible that they charge you for advance seat flight choice."

Pros: "Cute flight attendant guy !☺️"
Cons: "Crying children every time. Took forever to take off because the wing was hit by lightning apparently ."

Pros: "Comfy seats, entertainment, 2 in flight meals and very attentive flight attendants. They also supply blankets, pillows and headsets. Very smooth flight from JFK into Warsaw."

Pros: "Direct from nyc to warsaw"
Cons: "Was unlucky and was seated in a row where TVs did not work. Staff just shrugged their shoulders..."

Pros: "Check in fast and friendly. Arrivals on time. Service more professional than Lufthansa.There"
Cons: "There is nothing wrong to mention."

Pros: "The plains are new and modern. Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was just degrading . Boarding crew was unable to handle the passengers. Everyone just rushed for the plain regardless of seating order. Total chaos."

Pros: "Flight went smoothly and most important on time.Entirre crew was very kind and helpful. I really enjoy my flight. Thank you !"
Cons: "I do not have any complaints."

Pros: "Smooth and simple. Great flight!"

Pros: "No stress at all. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible. Only a few movies to choose from. Spent the whole flight watching the planes route."

Pros: "The flight experience was smooth!"
Cons: "A little snafu at the gate with everyone's carry on luggage could have been avoided with better communication."

Cons: "The extra customs in Belgrade when the flights are already late is random and ridiculous. The staff makes some people take off shoes but not others, they opened my cartoon accusing me of having a liquid when I had an empty glass container that he’d already been checked at two other checkpoints."

Pros: "The actual takeoff and landing with this airline is usually smooth"
Cons: "Airline is always late with no layover time making journeys stressful. The food and drink is only available for pay. There is no entertainment. There is a small snack which has been expired cookies on all flights I’ve experienced, and the staff seems reluctant to provide it. Boarding involved making everyone wait standing up for more than twenty five minutes corralled into as corner."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Manners"

Pros: "The crew on board was helpful, but they can hardly make up for company’s atrocious policies."
Cons: "They made me pay $70 for my carry on luggage - the very same one that I didn’t have to check in on my way to Zurich. The company has obscure luggage policies that could easily qualify as hidden charges. I will do everything I can to avoid flying with Air Serbia in the future."

Cons: "Check in was slow but not crowded and they lost my and other 20 passengers’ suitcases! No information was given about why and we still don’t have any information. AirSerbia does not respond do emails or calls."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and very attentive. Food was better than most airlines’ long haul meals."
Cons: "Standard intra-European business class seats, which aren’t any more comfortable than economy. Wi-Fi wasn’t available for a portion of the flight."

Pros: "Ehhhhh I was cool with certain things but nothing to like . The people who work there were nice though."
Cons: "The selection of movies . Very poor . What entertainment?"

Pros: "The plane was an airbus, nothing to rave about nothing also to complain about. It got us there safely and relatively speaking on time after a later inbound arrival."
Cons: "The process of check in was terrible could not do so on line at least in Berlin. It is possible elsewhere in the system. Long and slow line for check in and then long and slow line for passport control and security, but we survived it. Advice is arrive early, you will need the time."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seats"

Pros: "Crew is fantastik,Dana is the best"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Comfy and clean"

Cons: "Not enough time between the connecting flights. The terminals were too far apart, and the local airport transportation took too long to get me to a connection flight terminal."

Cons: "the flight was lite more than 30 minutes. Economy class - you have to pay for the meal? Are they Low Cost Company or ? If so, just tell us like that. Prices are among the highest in the region and all you get is a glass of water and a small bag of snacks."

Pros: "Pleasant staff, wonderful food, very pleasant flight"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was very good"

Pros: "My isle seat"
Cons: "Studardess were very unpleasant,2 times they passed my row,had to take out garbage by myself. Same movies were played on both flights (I had round trip)"

Pros: "On time flights both directions"
Cons: "Excessive baggage charges (40-60 euro each way per bag), so buy the ticket that includes the baggage"

Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew. Seats comfortable enough for an hour, but no longer."
Cons: "I have never been on a flight where there were so many screaming infants, and so loudly. Air Serbia, like the other airlines, apparently can find nobody smart and creative enough to solve that problem."

Pros: "Air Serbia did the best they could to keep passengers comfortable and send all of us to hotel during the day w food and comfortable accommodation"

Cons: "Couldn't log in online because site wouldn't accept any of my credit cards. Got up early to check in at the airport, discovered I was logged in... After all that, the airline changed my seat without warning, moving me from the window seat I selected (and paid for) to a middle seat. Where did they get the idea I would think that was OK? Then the flight was delayed, almost missed my connection. Boarding and exiting the aircraft were zoos. Eminently unrepeatable."

Pros: "Seating was excellent good leg room for a tall person like myself. Service on flight wad great. Boarding and checkin were a bit of a mess but were quickly resolved"

Cons: "They were very unpolite. They completely ignored multiple requests. I was ignored and not even asked get a drink (I just needed some water). They said they offer the food and drinks to others because they paid. Money wasn’t an issues. Besides I wasn’t even offered a drink neither asked for money. I found it really rude."

Pros: "Timeliness, cleanliness and comfort."
Cons: "Inflight duty free closed too early."

Pros: "I like it was fun"
Cons: "I liked everything"

Pros: "It was great experience clean, new plane, smilung staff, flight on time. Quick boarding although the flight was full. Much nicer than Swiss"

Pros: "Nothing. Rude staff. Horrible food and service."
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "I requested a special meal. It wasn't delivered. I had called Air Serbia days before my travel to confirm that, and the lady said it was. Unfortunatley, there is no way for me to lookbthat information online. Even the gate agent wasn't able to look that informationmout, and told me it will be there. I simply had to go with 'belief' that my special meal would be there. They did not have any other options . The food they served was so unpalatable that I threw up. I threw up in a plastic bag, as opposed to a barf bag. I didnt have time to get it out from the seat pocket. When I called the flight attendant for assistsnce, she was so rude in pointing that I should have used the barf bag and not a plastic bag. Very unempathetic. They did not check on me after that. The flight was so hot, and too crammed. Old plane. The entertainment was unentertaining. I would never fly this airline again."
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "No enerertainment and no food."

Cons: "Not possible for online check-in"

Cons: "Not possible for online check-in"

Pros: "Service was friendly and we were served drinks and a sandwich. The view from the window was good. Arrival a bit before scheduled time."
Cons: "It's a bus transfer to and from the terminal and the boarding bus transfer takes too long to load. I don't like the passport checks at the boarding gate - inefficient and inconsiderate."

Cons: "Not a orginized airline at all!! I flew my whole trip with the same 50+ people. We had 2 connecting flights, all the stops that we did was always behind schdual, staff was nice but late! the worst part is, our final destination 20+ people lost there luggage including me! My dad and aunt flew with are serbia aswell and they also lost there luggage..! My dad and aunt got there luggage after 1-2days after ther flight but its a big inconvenience i have no update on my luggage yet hopeing it will be here tomorrow."

Pros: "As mentioned many times, they are more professional than JAT, but still looong way to go."
Cons: "They upgraded their system, but it fails when it comes to payments. They should definitely replace turbo props with jets."

Pros: "crew was great , very friendly"
Cons: "tv sound didn't work"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I am almost 2 meter tall (6'4) and I asked more than 30 days before the flight to receive a seat with extra room for the legs, I was told that the flight was fully booked and there are no seat that are available. I then asked for the same in the check-in and received a similar answer. When I arrived to the plain I saw that I can't seat because there is no space so I asked the flight crew to try and find a solution but they said they can't do nothing. Only after I insisted and spoke with the cabin manager they checked and found a place - in fact there were 2 seats with extra room for the legs that were available!! and the flight had many other open seats (they just lied about it). A lot of the personal television did not work and the crew did not assist and did not solve the problem, but just said that this happens and that they can't do anything. This is just ridicolus for a more than 8 hours flight! The airconditioning did not work properly and it was exteremly hot. In general it was an horrible experience, the crew was very unpleasent and did not want to help and the food was just disgusting. I do not recommend to anyone to fly with Air Serbia, you better pay the extra money and fly with a real company."

Pros: "."
Cons: "."

Pros: "The seat, flexibility were great..and food are tasty and delicious"
Cons: "The crew was not friendly for the flight to Belgrade"

Cons: "It took 1:40min to go through the boarding process (drop luggage, get boarding pass). The actual flight is 1:20min. Total incompetence and lack of speed. This is how they worked it...They try to board multiple flights off the same counters. You stand in line for 1 hour and no movement happens- literally!?Then, since the next flight is about to be delayed - they announce for you to stampede forward, to make your flight. Then the process actually begins and 20min later and some bureaucracy on extra luggage you get your pass. Then you run through passport control and security, exhausted and frustrated (as was everyone else). Etihad should instruct Serbian Airlines in which they invested, how a plane (s) are to be boarded. After all it's over 100 years since the first commercial flight took place, its not that much of a mystery any more:)"

Pros: "Attentive crew, decent business class amenities, food was hit and miss. The selection of domestic wines and spirits was okay."
Cons: "The incoming flight was delayed until next day, with no effort on behalf of Air Serbia to communicate this. No space left for reproach, no effort of any kind of compensation. Once on board, the staff were great and did their best to accommodate this business traveller. The return flight was standard on terms of food and service, nothing special, nothing bad. The checking was another story, with lots of confusion and missed opportunities to make a difference. Mixed bag, overall."

Pros: "Good food, skillful pilot"

Pros: "Flight Crew and Ground service behavior during the problem with the plane damage."
Cons: "Poor capacity building of the lower service people at the ground level at Abu Dhabi airport. They should have proper information for all passenger's issues."

Pros: "It was a good flight over all, the service was non-stop"
Cons: "At JFK our pre booked seats were changed , and I had them changed back, there was some BS excuse for that I was questioning a flight attendant as to why the plum brandy wasn't on the menu,(national drink) I was told to fly first class the next time The flight back from Belgrade to JFK. I was told by the same flight attendant (Ana) that I was holding up the line, I was trying to put the carry on luggage over the seats. There was a 40 min delay in landing, the bathrooms were locked, once again the same flight attendant made a big deal of this, that I have to make it quick. The signs for the 1st class , bathroom should not be visible from the economy class seats because it confuses passengers, in the economy class, some of the passengers were sent back and not allowed to use the bathroom."

Pros: "Huge legs space for economy class, great service!!!"

Pros: "Food is very good"
Cons: "Flat bed is not comfortabl, no mattras.."

Pros: "Service was very good"

Pros: "Short flight. 50 minutes one way.there was no entertainment so I cannot comment on the entertainment."
Cons: "It was a propeller plane. It was very noisy. Our seat was number five. Next to the propeller. A lot of empty seats and we asked to be moved to a different seat but was not accommodated. I would suggest Providing earplugs to the passengers. On our return trip we were in route to. A little bit less noise, but still need your plugs. On our return trip the luggage took a long time to reach baggage claim, but 40 minutes. The flight was only 15 minutes long."

Pros: "Good company"
Cons: "The part of our luggage was lost when we landed in Ljublina but we got it next morning"
