Pros: "Not bad"
Pros: "Everything from boarding to disembarking was good."
Cons: "I had an impression that the seats on Turkish Airline were spaced further apart in economy class compared to other airlines based on several of our past trips. This time it was very tight. Dissapointed! Hope they bring the old spacing back."

Pros: "I really enjoyed having all of my concerns over delayed flights and possible missed connections rudely dismissed or outright ignored."
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late boarding and spent nearly 45 aboard the plane waiting to depart. No updates from the staff about our departure status or boarding status throughout the almost 2 hour delay. Got an email from Turkish airlines about this issue and they claim the flight was only 25 minutes late departing. Exaggerations occur sometimes when people are inconvenienced so I checked my call logs and social media accounts and found I completed multiple phone calls and status updates from New York over and hour after Turkish airlines tells me I left. One of us is lying and at this point I'm inclined to agree with facebook that I was still in JFK airport an hour after my flight was scheduled to leave when I updated my status to gripe about the delays."
Pros: "I had a most pleasant experience flying from New York, NY to Kiev, Ukraine. Everything about the service was just right. Thank you for your kindness and attention to detail. From now on I will only fly Turkish Airlines when going to Kiev."

Pros: "Movies selection and food was great"
Cons: "I was sitting in a row with 4 year old and her mother. It wasn't comfortable for them and for me at all, as the child was moving and talking constantly. Well, it's kid, I understand. But as I was going to use restroom I noticed that there was about 6-8 rows where there was only 1 person in 3 seats. Share and spread the space"
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Michelle, at the check in desk, went above and beyond to help me.

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: "Good food & service."
Cons: "Extremely cramped seating with inadequate space between knees & seat in front making the trip unnecessarily uncomfortable."
Pros: "The food, entertainment, friendliness, cleanliness (scents in the bathroom!)."
Cons: "Extremely little space in the cabin (economy). You are overdoing it with cramming people in. I will likely not fly Turkish Airlines again, even if it's less expensive, but 9 hours in a tiny space was too much. The announcements (in English) were not understandable and insufficient. We were 2 hours delayed without explanation. Many people worried about their connections, so advice on that would have been helpful."
Pros: "Always on time....no delays."
Pros: "Quiet trip"
Pros: "Wonderful Airline , great seating , clean planes and cooperative cabin crews highly recommended.."
Pros: "EVERYTHING EXCEPT FOR BEING CRAMPED IN MY SEAT."

Pros: "The crew was amazing, the seats were super comfortable, entertainment was great, lots of movies to choose from. Also they handed out a lot of great snacks"
Pros: "The crew was good. Now fast but good."
Cons: "The food was pretty basic."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."
Pros: "The flight attendants was very rude & keep harassing me about my emotional support dog, I was a real animal hater, the complaint is to long to list here, never experienced such a rude flight attendant in all my years of flying , I filed a official complaint with delta."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment, speed of flight"
Cons: "I was delayed over 2 hours"
Cons: "We were on the tarmac for almost 2 hours. It's probably LaGuardia but the experience was very bad."
Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"
Cons: "Delayed by 3 hours"
Pros: "-forgot to charge me for wine"
Cons: "-chair was broken -tray was broken -had to spend $33 for wifi that didn't even work -didn't have everything they say they offer to guests on the flight"

Cons: "Too much chatter over the intercom."
Pros: "i got to Atlanta safely"

Pros: "Crew was very accommodating and friendly."
Pros: "The friendliness and helpfulness of flight attendants was outstanding"
Pros: "I have not traveled on Delta for years. And this experience was great checking to boardING then the service was great. But I have to back up. The customer service on the phone that helped me adjust my flight, she was great. So I have to say delta was great"

Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Flight was fast and direct."
Cons: "Flight left 45 minutes late because the crew wasn't there."
Pros: "I loved getting an email with my baggage claim number."
Cons: "The food was the same snack they give in the evening and afternoon, even though it was morning- pretzel, peanuts, or cookies."
Pros: "flight itself was fine"
Cons: "When we arrived in LGA, the luggage conveyor belt was broken and luggage was piled up and driven to another terminal. As a result half of our luggage did not arrive on our flight but arrived on subsequent flight. However, one bag was nowhere to be found and Delta staff could not clarify the issue. They did find it next day and delivered to the FLL airport, but we had to get a cab and go to the airport to pick-up as we could not take a chance of it not making it to us before the cruise departure. I am extremely disappointed"
Pros: "i didn't get on the plane"
Cons: "flight was delayed, so i would have missed connection in NYC. Delta agent said she could get me to boston the next day, in the afternoon. i drove my rental car to boston that night, instead of flying"
Cons: "Delayed flight for 6 hrs. and acts like it is just business as usual, perhaps it is for Delta"
Pros: "Flight delayed for four hours, then delayed another hour before we left. Delta won't let you pick your seats, so although we were 3rd in line at the gate, they put my family of four at the rear of the plane. I will never fly Delta again."
Cons: "I wasn't able to choose my seat even though I bought my ticket a while back. Seat assignments were given at the gate and we were never given a real reason for this. I ended up in a middle seat sandwiched between people, and the man at the end slept the entire time, making it difficult to get up and walk around which I need to do as I am prone to DVTs."
Pros: "First time flying DELTA and to New York City. Really liked flying into Marine Terminal for it's smallness and easiness to collect luggage and catch a taxi."
Pros: "I have difficulty walking, the crew made sure that I got to my seat on the plane safely, and made sure that I had wheelchair support."
Pros: "On time, friendly staff, advertised Gogo Wifi not working."
Pros: "Smiley flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight was an hour delayed. Over booked by 11 people. Staff was cold and rude with no apologies. Turbulence the entire flight. They did the beverage service after two hours of flying. Worst Delta flight to date."
Cons: "My suitcase was damaged(torn through!)"
Cons: "We had to gate our roll-aboard because we were told that there was no more space, but there was plenty of space in the overheads when we boarded. Crew was great! There was no in-flight entertainment available."
Pros: "Crew was great! Everyone I dealt with from Delta was very kind, professional and helpful."
Cons: "Hour and forty-five minute flight delay."
Pros: "we arrived earlier than the time listed"
Cons: "no entertainment"
Pros: "Flight attendant was phenomenal."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight was smooth. Gate agent was excellent"
Pros: "Delta may not be the best however you can tell that they are always striving to be better each and everyday."
Cons: "There's always some personnel who slips through the cracks. I was told to please use the restroom located at the back of the plane versus the one closet to me at comfort class which is right behind first class. Didn't appreciate that much."
Cons: "I missed my meeting. The flight was delayed by 3:30 hours. Took forever to take off once we boarded."
Cons: "On the run way for 1 hour in line to take off"
Cons: "Purchased these tickets over a month ago and I was never able to select my seats. I am a Delta frequent flier, and despite logging on and checking in, was told at the airport counter that I would be assigned a seat at the gate. Of course we were assigned to the last row of the antiquated MD 88, right next to one of the engines. As if the lack of reclining seats was bad enough, the engine noise and vibration was almost unbearable on the flight that was delayed one hour on the Tarmac. The crew was understanding and we did get to Orlando safely...a big plus."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and boarding was very fast."
Cons: "I did not dislike anything about my flight it was amazing."
Pros: "Everything, but especially upgraded seating due to delayed flight which caused us to miss layover flight."
Cons: "Lost time to destination (vacation) due to delayed flight then missing our layover flight. Upgraded to Comfort+ was appreciated but time lost was time lost."
Pros: "Arrived at destination 30 mins earlier than expected."
Cons: "Boarding was a little late and slow. But it smoothed itself out since we arrived at our destination 30 mins earlier than expected."
Pros: "The Delta terminal at La Guardia was amazing I felt like I was back in Singapore , I had my choice of really good food ranging from Italian , German , Japanese and some American places all of which sounded good the prices were a bit expensive but that is just airports !"
Pros: "Easy boarding."
Cons: "I flew first on delta to Miami. Short trip, but was very disappointed in today's service. Instead of the normal solid good flight crew, I found a surly crew who congregated in the galley on this short flight and sat around eating in lieu of working the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seated in the back was so noisy ,I will try not to take Delta .First time flying Delta,"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, boarding went quickly, and the crew were nice. We'd taxied to the runway when takeoff was delayed by an incident ahead of us with another plane, and the flight attendants didn't give anyone a hard time about getting up to go to the restroom while we waited for the situation to be cleared, which I really appreciated."
Cons: "It was hot on the flight. The air vent on my seat wouldn't open. The seats seemed smaller than usual. (Even for modern day airline seats.) I flew to NY on American Airlines, and was relatively comfy, but was looking forward to my Delta flight back to Nashville, because I've been more pleased with Delta in the past. Maybe because the plane was smaller than I usually fly on or something (?), I spent the whole flight crammed into the corner, trying not to bump into the lady next to me (and she wasn't taking up too much space, btw - neither of us was overweight and neither of us used the shared armrest, we were both just wedged into our seats. Very uncomfortable)."
Pros: "The crew couldn't have been better--polite and efficient"
Cons: "The light was so weak that I could not read. Also, it was uncomfortably warm."
Pros: "Very nice and friendly service"
Pros: "Crew was professional and helpful."
Cons: "Seat was narrow for business class."
Pros: "Service was excellent, amazing professional crew, vegetarian friendly pasta dinner option was delicious"
Cons: "Metal bars in the middle of the leg room space make stowing a small carry on under the seat in front of you impossible for all passengers in a row. Also awkward to place feet around. No direct air vents so I felt hot even wearing just a t shirt. Breakfast not as good"
Pros: "The crew were so friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I was told on the phone earlier (and very rudely) there are no gluten free options for eating. I have celiac disease and do not do the diet for "fun". It's for health. I found out thanks to the excellent crew on board there is an option."
Cons: "More chicken"
Cons: "They run out of chicken and only had pasta dinner left. I don't like pasta ."
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Boarding crew in EWR insisted that my small carry on had to be checked in. MANY passengers were able to bring on board luggage that was larger and clearly heavier. I don’t understand why I was one of the exceedingly few passengers pulled out of the queue to have luggage checked in. Food was sad."
Cons: "I did not like the delays over one hour delayed"
Pros: "Great customer service at check in window, very comfortable and clean airplane, very good cabin crew..overall highly satisfied"
Cons: "It was difficult to leave my seat when passenger a front of me put his seat all the way to the back. Did not have that problem on other Lufthansa flights to and from Europe. I"
Pros: "The efficiency and kindness of the flight attendants made the trip enjoyable. The water service really helped with dehydration. Also, the food was EXCELLENT, which you don't often hear on a flight. My seat was comfortable and the movie and television selections was great. Will ABSOLUTELY fly with them again!"
Pros: "ground services"
Cons: "seats with little leg room"
Pros: "They boarded back of aircraft first. They gave wine on demand. They were smiling and helpful and greeted us on entry and exit. The little things matter!"
Cons: "It was difficult to fall asleep in the seats. Uncomfortable."
Pros: "The staff was good to me when I became ill on the flight with a migraine."
Cons: "When I paid for my seat in advance it said I had an exit row, but when I got on the flight it was not. The food was also horrible."
Cons: "Missed transfer, despite assurance before takeoff."
Pros: "Excellent staff and organized service. Entertainment syst m standard but worked well without problems."
Cons: "Food was just OK"
Pros: "Baggage handling, efficiency overall"
Cons: "Small legroom in economy"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, we all had a bottle of water at our seats, we were immediately served drinks and snacks, the meals were really nice (haven't had this in years). Plane crew were friendly and helpful. Kids loved the entertainment selection - it kept them occupied throughout the flight in spite of their young age (3yrs and 5 yrs)."
Cons: "Baby kept most of the cabin up for three hours of a six-and-half hour flight. I know this isn't Lufthansa's fault, but they did little to help. Also, business class seats are too hard!"
Pros: "Boarding to exit all went smooth"
Cons: "Air was sometimes stale"
Pros: "I LOVED the Crew. Exceptional! Polite, accommodating, kind, friendly. Just wonderful. The food was pretty good too! The entertainment was great. I loved that the toilets were in a separate area downstairs! The flight was overall pretty comfortable. The cabin temperature was also great, not the freezing temperature found on American planes. Thank you LUFTHANSA!!!"
Cons: "The flight was late boarding and late arriving in Munich. I had a connecting flight to make and that was a harrowing experience. I had no precedence offers the other passengers in deplaning. I was given no help in making my connecting flight. I had to queue up for border control. I had to go up and down numerous escalators. I was stopped by a policeman asking for papers which I had already given to border control. I had to take a train and change terminals. My connecting flight was departing from the farthest gate possible in the terminal. I was running the entire time, and I barely made it. Had I not been running, I would have missed my connection."
Cons: "The ticketing when purchasing a ticket from NEW YORK is very unclear and even though we wanted a JFK ticket, the NEW YORK search showed a ticket for NEWARK NJ so my step dad ended up going to the JFK airport - An elderly man who has trouble with English and no one was willing to help him to rebook his ticket. Not only that - the Lufthansa people VOIDED his entire ticket including the second leg because the agency wasn't picking up for a rebooking so the entire ticket cost was lost - $1200 - GONE! We couldn't even get him a one way ticket so he could use the return part of the one he bought. This is an absolute customer service disaster. This man lost all his money, he saves up all year to go see his family. That's an ugly way to take advantage of people."
Pros: "Great crew, service was excellent"
Cons: "Once off international flight in Dusseldorf, had to go through passport check prior to transfer onto second flight... One passport check person in line for almost 200 people... We did make our flight, however very stressful for no reason. Lufthansa was amazing, Euro-wings folks... very unhelpful..."
Cons: "Stoll in Germany first flight was over 1.5 hour late a I miss my original flight. I must wait now for afternoon flight and wait all day having family emergency situation."
Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "Service, comfort, movie selections"
Cons: "N/A because we missed the flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time and uneventful. Plane was a bit cool and most passengers were required to put their jackets back on. No complaints otherwise."
Cons: "Newark is not my preferred airport. We had to leave secure area between flights. Upon reentry, security stations were undermanned and wait times were long."
Pros: "New airplane"
Cons: "The front seat has sharp edges at knee level. Wen the front passenger recline his seat it killed my knees."
Pros: "The basics were fine."
Cons: "The crew on the flight was really loud and talked about unprofessional things. Every time I was woken up it was by a flight attendant talk to another attendant really loud across the plane. Also, this was advertised as Lufthansa but was actually United. Kayak seems to do this frequently, and as a customer it is confusing and disappointing."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and very accommodating. We were also very impressed by the plane itself. The seating was the most comfortable either of us has experienced on an overseas flight."
Cons: "Good for entertainment but the headphone insert in my particular seat would only play through one ear. Not a headphone issue, they worked fine in another screen. Inconvenient for a long flight."
Pros: "We arrived in London ahead of time. We go to Newark ahead of time"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "it was much more comfortable on the second part of the flight"
Cons: "The Newark airport is a swamp of unpleasant facilities and personnel."
Pros: "In my experience Lufthansa is almost always on time and very professional in how they manage their flights."
Pros: "Professional and courteous flight attendants."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Food was good. Attendants were helpful and courteous . Airline was on time."
Cons: "boarding was pretty chaotic. Check in was difficult getting seat assignments. Could not do it on line."
Pros: "However the connecting time for MUC to HEL was bit more."
Pros: "Smooth and quick ride."
Cons: "There was a metal rod situation under the seat in front of me, which meant my bag wouldnt even fit, not to mention my legs. Also, I am not the biggest fan of flying and I started feeling sick at the end of the flight - kept it to myself but asked the flight attendant if I could have 2 sparkling waters and an orange juice (just to have it in front of me when I need it and not to bother anyone). I received what I asked for with an eye-roll and a shocked face. Just be nice - that's all."
Pros: "i am glad that i got there safely and ahead of time"
Cons: "it was NOT a lufthansa flight, which is what i was expecting and wanted. it was a united flight . i wanted to fly lufthansa because it is a higher quality experience than united, but for some reason after i bought the ticket i learned that united was operating the flight for lufthansa"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and several announcements made the flight easy"
Cons: "We were late !"
Pros: "Service and meals were excellent and well organized."
Cons: "I booked the flight with Lufthansa and thought I was flying with them. When I first went to terminal C at Newark with my paperwork United told me I had to go to terminal B. I went to ' B ' and Lufthansa told me to go back to Terminal C , that I was flying on a United flight. So I went back and the United people helped me. It all worked out well but was initially confusing."
Cons: "The crew seemed not to Americans, funny is that I'm not even one just speak English well, rude!"
Pros: "i liked the borading line already lined up in the different groups"
Pros: "The direct connection to Milan The extreme fast flight with jet stream That the luggage arrived as well"
Pros: "Crew was nice on plane and they were trying to keep us filled with food and water."
Cons: "Horrible desk staff! Why would any airline refuse to allow a customer with kids on the plane a little sooner to allow for more time with organizing ourselves and kids. It's already intimidating to fly let alone internationally and for them to make us wait until our boarding time is inconsiderate. Plus united air had the absolute smallest and uncomfortable. I could not move and let along our poor toddler was cramped up. Our newborn was ok but it's like a 2 seat turned into 3 seats! Horrie."
Pros: "Free inflight movies thats about it.."
Cons: "Everything: the seats were highly uncomfortable, the stewardessses in the back were unfriendly and not accomadating. Any extra you requested seemed to be a bother! Again the seating was cramped and terrible. We booked with Luthansa yet ot was a united plane what a dissapointment!! One of the worse flights ever. Food was mediocer at best!"
Pros: "The food and the movies."
Cons: "Our initial flight was delayed by 2 hours and some, we lost the connecting flight from Munich to Cluj-Napoca, had to stay in the Munich airport for 12h, being very tired, hungry, having a terrible flu and fever, extremely pissed off, your personnel who did not tell us there was a relaxing area or that we were supposed to get food vouchers. The plane should've been checked and ready on time,and certainly not after some passengers boarded it. The new plane they switched it with was not properly cleaned, plus we had no earphones. One of the flight attendants was constantly passive-aggressive. I did not appreciate that at all. The tickets issued at Newark had no gate assigned for our connecting flight and with the delay and everything, more time was wasted with finding that. The boy who rebooked us for the next flight did not assist with anything, did not tell us about vouchers. after finding out about that, I was disappointed for receiving 12€ for 12h=one sandwich and one 0.5lt of mineral water. Seriously? It was not my fault that this happened. I expected better from Lufthansa."
Pros: "Crew, seat"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Staff helpful"
Cons: "We booked our seats online and later at check in received boarding passes with totally different seats. Ordered kids meals and was informed that they dont have any for our kids :("
Cons: "Was unable to take the trip. Unable to rebook without excessive fees. Lost $2000."
Cons: "The food was so cheap... pasta and a muffin. I’ll be looking around for another airline."
Cons: "The crew dropped the bottle to the head of my son."
Cons: "Hand luggage not allowed onboard due to being just a bit oversized -- just its wheels only. Never had this problem with the same luggage with other airlines, only with Austrian."
Pros: "Service, yr air hostesses are so polite."
Cons: "Food was too little for dinner and breakfast both"
Pros: "From start to finish there were no hiccups. It was a pleasant journey."
Pros: "Everything was awesome best flight i had in my life."
Cons: "Boarding process was not easy to hear and it was unclear where the line for our gate ended and the line for the gate right next to ours began"
Pros: "Absolutely fantastic service from the check in counter until deplaning. Delicious food, snacks & even wine & other alcohol included. The staff is super friendly & very tentative. It was really a treat to fly Austrian Airlines."
Cons: "This is just nit picking and if I absolutely had to I’d just hope for a more of a variety of movies, TV shows & music if possible."
Pros: "The Swiss Air staff provided water and nice sandwiches for us while we stood in line for hours and put us up in a very nice hotel for the night."
Cons: "My first flight with Austrain Airlines was 2 hours late in leaving, partly because they mixed our baggage up and had to have each of us leave the airplane to identify our baggage before getting back on again. Because of this, I missed my connecting flight in Zurich. Apparently hundreds of other passengers were in a similar situation, because I spent the next 6.5 hours standing in line to getting my new itinerary and hotel vouchers."
Cons: "All good!"
Cons: "Checked baggage very expensive."
Cons: "The business class was not really business class, I guess a 3 hour Business Class flight doesn’t have a seating configuration t Like the new A321. With all said Austrian Air is on the top of its field,"
Cons: "Cancel it"
Cons: "muffin for breakfast ?"
Cons: "Service was bad"
Pros: "Flight crew & overall experience was positive. Meal & entertainment were good."

Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Flt was great - service was great"
Pros: "Flight was good and everything worked out perfectly."
Pros: "I thought the food was excellent. Better food in coach than I get on first class domestic flights. Also, the in-flight entertainment was very good. I watched a couple of science shows and extreme sports shows that I truly enjoyed."
Cons: "There wasn't much I did not enjoy that could be changed. I chose to go coach and had to put up with seating that was more cramped than I like, but I expected that."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled at the time we were suppose to board. We had to find another flight via Istanbul and got to our destination 6 hours late. Won't use Kayak again."
Cons: "Designs of Business Class seatings need some improvement. It seemed there was waste of useful space. Therefore, the area for Business Class seating was big but there were not enough space for everything."
Pros: "Got to destination safe and sound and was thankful for that!"
Cons: "Boarding was messy. Food was ick- "chicken" tasted like a grade d boiled chicken nugget, terrible texture. Ladies on flight were kind, although not terribly helpful. Movie selection was pretty small and lots of Rated R movies, hard to find anything in the middle (not kids, but not adult)."
Pros: "I loved the music while boarding the plane. All staff members were very nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but due to efforts of the pilot we were on time!"
Pros: "arrived early"
Pros: "they asked me if I wanted an upgrade to business class - nice"
Cons: "they left all the lights on in the plane - difficult to sleep at night. Never had this happen before. Another lady from N.J., originally from SLovakia and going to Kosice for a visit complained about the same thing. SHe was worn out and so am I."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight."
Cons: "Boarding area cramped, all classes and rows boarded at same time."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room in economy. Will fly again."
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant, calm, and efficient."
Pros: "Good movie selection on flight"
Cons: "Got bumped from the seat I reserved after boarding without explanation and when I explained I was traveling with a group was simply told that's too bad. Their customer service is awful and had already submitted a complaint for a return flight which was never followed up on."
Pros: "food was fine"
Cons: "to small seats"
Pros: "I like the cotrious service. But I wish this international flight would take two suitcases instead of one"
Pros: "The staff was very pleasant"
Cons: "Very crowded plane!"
Cons: "Policies on bringing stroller differed between each trip. And they were not polite about it."
Pros: "Service was spectacular. The United crew was awesome."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "First fight was canceled to Vienna diverted to Turkish air to flight into Turkey. In the US was diverted to Milwaukee for 2 hours after already being on a 12 hour flight. Then missing our landing time in Chicago by 5 hours."
Pros: "Everything seemed all right"
Pros: "The entire experience was a joy. I was upgraded to business class and the difference was noticeable. I was comfortable and suffered no ill effects after. Much different that my trip home."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like"
Cons: "I can't believe they charge extra to reserve a seat. Just charge an honest flight."
Pros: "The company that not give us what lthay have to after we lost our tour at Berlin"
Cons: "Seat was small and narrowed with no leg room at all Worst I've ever seen"
Pros: "Crew was nice, plane was new and clean, flight was safe with no issues"
Cons: "Plane was so small, I had a feeling I was on a low cost carrier in Europe. Even carry on couldn't fit above in the bins. This is very disappointing for an airline that used to be great. That plane was like the bottom level of the Titanic where people were squizzed in. Upon arrival in Vienna getting off the plane we had to take the stairs and the bus to the terminal - that's how small the plane was. Just awful."
Pros: "Overall the flight was better than most. The crew was friendly, competent and as attentive as coach allows these days. I appreciated the attendant who asked the man in front of me to put his seat back up during the meal. The little red pillows were great - big enough to be useful and comfortable. Although we chose not to watch a movie, we were impressed with the offerings. Comfort on a long flight in coach is a thing of the past but we knew that when we chose to fly that class."
Cons: "Most of the crew was great (hence the five star rating) and the flight in general was at least on a par with competitive airlines but we did have an unpleasant encounter with a young man who we were told was the purser. When my husband asked about what seemed to us like a very high level of security (including dogs on the gangway as we boarded the plane), this young man replied in a very condescending manner,"It's America. You tell me". Well, we are Americans, not always in agreement with our country's actions and attitudes, but that comment was needlessly dismissive and hostile."
Pros: "Great plane good price for plane ticket."
Pros: "Everything was very good with an exception of being very tight space wise"
Cons: "no leg room, tight rows"
Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."
Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"

Pros: "Nice crew, good food."
Cons: "Both bathroom were not working in business class area."
Pros: "Flight was on time."

Pros: "Almost everything, especially the crew."
Cons: "Don’t feel like anything should be better to be honest"
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"
Pros: "Planes were on time and connections made."
Cons: "One bag delayed as not put on flight and food could be better."
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my bagfage was lost"
Pros: "Just as I expected. And I made my last connection easily."
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
Pros: "Amazing services .. on time just exactly .. I feel really happy onboard KLM ❤️"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant but not attentive to detail. Bypassed is completely for snack and drink towards end of 9 hour flight!"

Pros: "It was all fine"
Cons: "Really was unsure of why I had to purchase a ticket as I was able to pick my own on the way to Billund"

Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"
Cons: "I booked tickets via Delta, operated by KLM. They lost both of my check in bags in September, and it happened again today for the same scheduled flights. Had 4 hours of layover and KLM still wasn’t able to manage it."

Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."
Cons: "infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed"
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean"
Cons: "The food was terrible, wifi was extremely expensive (Delta had free messaging over their wifi)"
Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."

Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Food was good!"
Cons: "Have no complaints"
Cons: "Crowded seating, wake-up for breakfast service two hours before arrival"
Pros: "787 is a great airplane. The 3-3-3 seat configuration leaves enough seat width to be just comfortable in coach."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."
Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"
Cons: "Luggage (being handled by Air France in Basel) was first marked as delayed... nothing of the flight was in the end put on the belt and instead dropped off at Lost and Found. Ridiculous service since this was in no way announced to the people waiting for their suitcase."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Economy was very tight! Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and hassle free, crew were friendly and helpful, food and drinks were very good, entertainment system is awesome and up to date with latest contents, good flight overall"
