I got confused about flight time and day missed my flight and rescheduled it for another day they charged me again $260. Even I tried to call the airline 4 hours before nobody answered me . I don’t have time now to fight this case but I think it’s not fair…
Cabin crew in business class seem so rushed. Hurry up and serve food, hurry up and clear trays, hurry up and get things done. It felt frantic but overall it was okay.
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Boarding could have been better"
Pros: "The flight went very smooth including boarding, transferring at Istanbul. The infotainment system was helpful in a way that you could see the real time camera feed of the ground and runway."
Cons: "Fewer passengers on board. I know it’s about profits and financial feasibility, however listening to a prerecorded message about 1.5 social distancing while being boarded 20 cm from 2 passengers undermines the whole thing, isn’t it?"
Cons: "Due to mishandling of the situation, we were not allowed to board the plane, despite the fact there was no restriction for us not to do so."
Cons: "Sit in the plane too tight"
Pros: "The crew and the food were amazing! The seats in Business Class were bery comfortable."
Cons: "Food- improve the menu, with veggie pasta, there was chicken on the side. For breakfast only on option- scrambled eggs. Not much for vegetarians. Also my flight Istanbul to mumbai, the table on which you keep the food was not aligned, the food tray kept sliding down."
Cons: "The stewardess not very nice"
Pros: "The crew was great and the flight was smooth. The food was also good."
Cons: "The passenger next to me in the middle was hitting his arm rest on my leg and made my flight uncomfortable because he would not sit still. I think crew needs to do a better job of making sure everyone stays seated when the plane is still moving before jumping out of their seats and grabbing their luggage. Passengers should be able to exit out of more than one door same as entering."
Cons: "Missed this flight due a layover and had to wait in the airport overnight."
Pros: "I love the small thoughtful things such as entertainment, ear buds and meals."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "was unable to upgrade tickets in advance off of web site. Others in Greece and Italy tried to assist as well and found same and when calling 800 numbers the calls were not going thru or hold time was overly extreme. Was told at Athens check in to upgrade in Instanbul and to go to transfer desk to get upgrade. An upgrade of $1200.00 Euro's is extreme Being packed like sardines for a 10 plus hour flight is not good. It is also unhealthy. Turkish Airlines should consider something other then the 777 for any international flying."
Cons: "My taxi crashed on the way to Izmir, I missed my flight to Istanbul and my connection to Dublin in still stuck in Istanbul"
Pros: "Service from the crew at boarding and during the flight"
Cons: "The touch screen are old and not responding to the touch . Make it a little bit hard to watch, also quality is low."
Pros: "Food and drinks"
Cons: "Business class seats can be a bit wider"
Cons: "They cancelled my returning flight WITHOUT me knowing and expecting me to pay for the penalty fee for misisng the first flight even tho I DID not cancel the returning flight which obviously I was gonna take. The staff was RUDE and INSENSITIVE. Qatar was better in overall customer service. Worst customer service from Turkish airline."
Pros: "Only two thing. The bathrooms and the intertainment"
Cons: "Seats are very compacted, lack of space and so close to reduced leg room resulting an agonizing experience to a new level of torture, unnacceptable on 14 hrs of imtercontinental flight. One word “horrid”"
Pros: "Service is good, and food as well."
Pros: "Crew and the food"
Cons: "That the WiFi didn’t work."
Cons: "Comfort, service, food"
Pros: "Very impressed! So impressed that actually called home to tell others to make sure they booked through Turkish airline for their travel next month!"
Pros: "they do really their best- they have a good standard."
Cons: "english is hard to understand"
Pros: "Food, no delays, entertainment, price"
Cons: "No leg room on the plain, the crew is ok, but not very friendly. Not flexible with kids menu (requested kids menu, but crew was not notified and was not able to provide any), not very clean inside the plane (tables were dirty and there was hair in the window)"
Pros: "The experience was great."
Cons: "Everything was good the service, the staff was professional."
Cons: "The space between the seats were narow"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of"
Pros: "Great crew. Super nice to our 4 year old daughter. They were quick, extra polite and efficient. I'm usually quite picky but this leg was perfect."
Cons: "It was all good(which I rarely get to say these days on any carrier)"
Pros: "Crew did a good job handling a stressful situation."
Cons: "Security process for boarding is a mess, with absurd redundancy and tiresome rechecking of passports an d boarding passes, inconsistent application of carry on rules and long waits. Then we boarded and sat for two hours. The aircraft should be checked out and ready to go before boarding. Then, in Chicago, it took almost 2 hours to get our luggage."
Cons: "It never happened."
Pros: "Good food, very polite and attentive staff."
Cons: "Seat cushions lack comfort and the legroom is not sufficient for a average size person."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. I got my special meal. I am very thankful for it."
Cons: "Kosher food was ok"
Pros: "It was not expensive"
Cons: "It is difficult to say anything positive about a 13 hour flight in cattle class. It is just not comfortable."
Pros: "Things that I liked I expected - we take it for granted: crew must be polite, boarding - efficient, leg room is normal."
Cons: "Even in business class leg room is not ample, aircraft seems to be quite old, inside is well scoffed and scratched, my foot rest couldn't be raised or extended, no personal ventilation, temperature is interchangeably too hot or too cold, movie choice is far from awesome"
Pros: "Excellent STAR lounge in Istanbul Good service, once settled. Friendly staff."
Cons: "On line check-in system does not remember frequent flier info. Passport check at gate was poorly managed. Everyone was in waiting area then told to get out and stand in line for passport check. It happened each time so this seems to be their normal process. On flight back they bused us to the airplane and waited for all three buses to arrive at the airplane before allowing anyone to board. Flight attendants helped with moving carry on bags in bins but with little consideration to the items. Completely unorganized boarding process to the point it is worth paying a little more to fly a different airline."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and welcoming"
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable environment. The really take care of you"
Cons: "Boarding Process could be a little streamlined. Guess we are used to the regulated process."
Cons: "Service is very bad"
Pros: "Service on board was terrible..."
Pros: "Free beer, edible food, free tote bag with earplugs blindfolds and (crappy) ear phones"
Cons: "Very small seats, long layover in airport with minimal entertainment options, security risks of spending layover in terrorist attacked airport, flying from prague we had to fly 3 hours East only to fly 12 hours West...24 hours of travel to fly from eastern Europe is not necessary. Next time I'll pay more and avoid flying through Istanbul."
Cons: "Due to a family emergency I was forced to change my flight to a later date and they did a terrible job handling. Would not allow me to change and charged me enormous change fees. I will never fly Turkish airlines again."
Cons: "I was not allowed the cancel my flight. I lost a lot of money and I will never book through or fly Turkish airlines again. They were rude and had terrible customer service."
Cons: "We travel very frequently and each time the food same (meatballs) And the air conditining is terrible."
Pros: "It was a non-stop flight from Istanbul to Atlanta!"
Cons: "The plane was diverted to IAD right before landing to ATL. The crew told us that the plane was diverted because of "weather conditions." Once we landed to ATL we were told that there were no storms in the area!Who knows why the plane was diverted to IAD?"
Pros: "Everithing was exelent, the best food, movies and nice crew"
Cons: "Our plane was not attached to the terminal and we have to go on the bus, we was with little kid amd 2 hand bags - wasn't pleasent"

Pros: "The large amount of entertainment to choose from was very nice."
Cons: "Timeliness and comfort in seats could be better."
Pros: "Very friendly, helpful and communicative crew."
Cons: "Only complaint: the touch screen on the seat back was oddly unresponsive and this made it a bit difficult to interface with the various in-flight entertainment options; the streaming music in particular."
Pros: "Great crew. I love Lufthansa. I just wish there was more room for my legs."
Cons: "More leg room!"
Pros: "Loved the food and drink service."
Cons: "Did not like how far back the seat in front of me went. Causes a cramped ride."
Pros: "crew wasn't friendly, seats are very narrow and uncomfortable"
Cons: "FOOD WAS DISGUSTING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "The Soviet Union wants its airline back. This was perhaps the RUDEST airline experience I've ever experienced. I was at Frankfurt (FRA) airport waiting to board Air Moldova Flight 864 to Chisinau (KIV). Due to a delay caused by Frankfurt security (and no fault of my own), I was delayed in reaching the gate. Since it was past my boarding time, I grabbed my bags from the conveyor belt once past security without having time to repack. I arrived at the gate and the extremely rude Air Moldova gate agent on duty yelled at me and demanded that I give her my boarding pass. When I told her I needed to pack, she yelled that there was “no time for that”. When I searched for my pass, she again yelled and said “NOW!”. When I told her that it was not my fault that I arrived late since there was a delay at security, she said “Not my problem!”. After she checked my boarding pass, I tried to repack and she again yelled “There is no time. Go to the bus NOW!” I once again told her that it was not my fault I got delayed and she again yelled “NOT MY PROBLEM”. In addition to rude employees, the airline is clearly in violation of safety regulations. The safety card in the back seat pocket was written in ARMENIAN – and Armenian only, thanks to the plane having been leased and Air Moldova not appropriately changing the safety cards. How did they expect people who read Romanian or Russian (the local languages) or English to understand it! On top of that, the plane was easily 20 years old or more and dirty. If they can't even keep a plane clean or have the appropriate safety cards, what else are they not maintaining. Do not fly this terrible airline!"
Pros: "Plane and service was excellent"
Pros: "Friendly staff!!!"
Cons: "All good!!"
Pros: "Review for Eurowings"
Pros: "The incrediblesmoothness of the flight: the lane to Frankfortwas a dream plane, and the pilots are to be congratulated."
Cons: "Late noisy too many children slow boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "1. There was no beverage service before the meal - that's new to me (travelled 4x around the globe, mostly with LH 2. It took 3 people to open the meal seal with the plastic knife ... 3. You need a written contact with your neighbor about the foot placement - space is so narrow, you need to take turns if you would like to come off the plane without back injuries 4. New custom: serve coffee AFTER breakfast 5. Nobody walked around with water or juice between the meals - you had to wake your neighbor since climbing over someone is no longer possible [either] 6. If you have 2 beverages on your tray and your neighbor needs to get out, you need a third person to assist (impossible to get out of your seat with 2 beverages in your hands (we tried it!) - just too narrow (even for a European Teenager) 7. It was not clearly visible who boards where. An Economy couple standing patiently in line at the Wong boarding line was sent back to the end of the long economy line - although NOBODY was in the business line"
Pros: "Flight on time and excellent service."
Cons: "Food was not great."
Cons: "No room for my knees."
Pros: "Lufthansa airlines never fails to provide excellent service."
Pros: "Fight attendants' courtesy"
Pros: "Efficiency and level of care, quality of food and drinks, not to mention the entertainment on Lufthansa Airlines!"
Cons: "Nothing to write here, whole experience was excellent!"
Pros: "Had a very comfortable journey. Nice and friendly crew. Amenities at Frankfurt were excellent."
Pros: "Everything was on time, the flight crew was unbelievably friendly, and the flight was empty which made it comfortable and very relaxing!! Highly recommend."
Pros: "Staff is super friendly and works hard to accommodate your needs. This flight also so happened to be empty so I got to lay down and nap haha."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything is great. I'm just writing these words so my review hits 50 characters."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and the food was good. Very uneventful, easy flight."
Cons: "Definitely not enough leg room"
Pros: "Lufthansa is amazing!"
Pros: "2 hours delayed in Munich"
Pros: "Good things: 1. The boarding process is very great. The staff doing check-in is very professional. 2. Food on the plane is good, I choose beef stack."
Cons: "Things I don't like: 1. My seat was the 1st-row aisle seat. OMG, the seat is extremely small, my legs were very very uncomfortable. I would rather sit another regular seat instead of the 1st-row aisle seat. Usually, I sleep on the plane during whole flight, but this time I could not sleep at all. 2. There was a curtain which separates the business class and economic class. As the 1st point, my seat was the 1st-row aisle seat, so the curtain hit me every time the crew went through the curtain, which is extremely annoying. 3. The Entertainment screen is so difficult to use, either hard to touch or so slow."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked with many.people being on standby. The crew at the gate was unhelpful making entire experience more streafull than necessary without clear rules how the seats will be assigned (whether we should wait in line or they will call us by names). The flight was 2h delayed in NYC because of the mess at the gate coating me a missed connection to Denmark (not that it was necessary have Lufthansa put any effort in speeding up.my transfer like pick up at the gate, gate information before I left aircraft or even as I approached a desk I. Frankfurt as the conneecting flight was late too). On top of that mess I have not gotten my speciality meal and eintertaiment system was malfunctioning the entire flight. Crew could not be bothered with bringing over water and didn't exactly respond to call button."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Received very filling meals. Free movies available for watching."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for over an hour with no explanation as to what was happening. At least overall, we only arrived half an hour late."
Cons: "We never flew out !! We're still at the airport! Please help us! We have to be in Spain by Saturday"
Pros: "Entertainment and staff were great"
Cons: "It wasnt comfortable and i wasnt able to sleep at all"
Cons: "Not enough space in between seats"
Pros: "The stewards did their jobs well."
Cons: "Our departure was severely delayed due to airport and aircraft crew errors. This meant that I missed my connecting flight in Munich, had to endure an extended lay over, board an extra flight to Budapest and endure an even more unbearable lay over there before being able to reach my final destination in Athens. I paid for a one-stop flight and have ended up having to endure a two-stop flight with extended lay overs. I feel completely cheated out of my money and overall have had a terrible experience."
Pros: "My first flight overseas was wonderful. Almost never felt any turbulence and the crew was so friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Cramped seats in economy. Next time we'll definitely upgrade for more leg room."
Pros: "Good staff, comfortable seat"
Cons: "The transfer from one Lufthansa flight to another"
Pros: "I had a very short (perfect timing) stopover on my way to Bucharest."
Cons: "Dirty plane, apparently not cleaned from the previous flight, since there were crumbs everywhere on the floor.... Unfriendly crew, non accommodating, not helpful, or not even following on questions/ requests from passengers. I don't expect a luxurious meal for an economy class ticket, but the food could have been better ( and it is - with other airlines). Some fresher bread - and more eatable - would have been very good. The movie selection was poor - only old, badly rated movies. I know it can be way better than this - with other airlines. Overall I was unpleasantly surprised - very surprised."
Pros: "All. Excellent experience."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Everything was excellent except breakfast from joke to Fra"
Cons: "Breakfast one choice including ham which unrespect to Muslims"
Cons: "My son Adam is in Mekele Ethiopia having flown most of his journey with Lufthansa. For two days now, his luggage with his nebulizer and asthma medications has gone missing and not ONE person at Lufthansa is willing to help on their end. Since his last leg was with Ethiopian Airlines, Lufthansa is unwilling to help in any fashion or form in helping to track the luggage that flew with them over two flights. They DENY they have any responsibility to help because it's not their "policy." They wouldn't even look into their computers to see where the luggage was last seen. I am so angry that "policy" is more important to Lufthansa than actual human caring about their passengers."
Pros: "All went well. On time boarding n arrival. Smooth flight n landing"
Pros: "The staff at check in was very helpful!! Great service!"
Cons: "You need to pay $35 per seat to reserve."
Pros: "The crew was personable"
Cons: "Not enough recent television"
Pros: "Everything just sort of fell in place. No complaints!"
Pros: "Every aspect of flight was great....and the amenities like real china, glassware and utensils, individual video screens with a lot of options, helpful and friendly staff from counter to crew made my first international flight memorable :)"
Pros: "Prompt boarding and takeoff, good space, comfortable seats, good food."
Pros: "Food was very good, and the service from flight attendants."

Cons: "I don’t know I was nervous in Austria just I need to tell you for Washington it was the nice trip to Washington from Washington I had just better thiothere"
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: "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: "Smooth ride, good breakfast and charming flight attendant."
Cons: "muffin for breakfast ?"
Pros: "Flight crew & overall experience was positive. Meal & entertainment were good."
Cons: "We paid for extra leg room seats & were told we'd have exit row. We ended up in the middle section, which made it very uncomfortable for the overnight flight."
Pros: "Great airline, everything on time,exelent service, great staff, good food"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "Flt was great - service was great"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Ended up on Swiss Air. Only good thing about Austrian was they booked us on other flights at the check in desk."
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: "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: "Snacks in board included in the price. Super nice crew team. Unlike British airways where prices are higher, on longer flights there is no free refreshments and crew staff were unpleasant."
Cons: "Very small and old plane. Uncomfortable seats. Hand luggage bigger than small backpack not permitted on the board."
Pros: "Unfortunately no good experience comes to my mind..... Only one! At boarding there was a Jewish girl, she was very nice and kind! I wish I could list here more positive!!!"
Cons: "Unfortunately the food was poor quality. You should pay attention to people who eat kosher and have an option available. Eventho I have marked it on my ticket I need kosher food it wasn't available. It is upsetting. It would be a must at every company, regardless of the service to have name tags for the employees!!! Mostly the flight attendants were kind, but as soon as i asked for something it seemed like they don't want to help or work at all. I understand I have traveled on the economy class but shouldn't make a difference how you treat the travelers. The pillows were dirty!!!!! Not only one, because I have asked for more......most of them! It is disgusting! Something must have been wrong with the headphones because the volume was on max when i tried to watch the move but barely could hear anything. I have flew with Lufthansa most of the time and in the future will chose them. Very disappointing that sooo many little things are interrupting a vacation."
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: "Service was spectacular. The United crew was awesome."
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"
Pros: "Served a lot of food. Most personnel friendly and helpful. Enjoyed entertainment selections. Plus this flight was $300 cheaper than the others. Convenient times and choice of airports."
Pros: "Service was efficient and satisfactory."
Cons: "There is an extra charge to reserve a seat in advance. I lost my wallet and glasses case on board. They fell out of my carryon. They clearly had fallen under my seat and likely had slipped to rows in front of or behind that seat. I discovered their loss after going through security in Vienna. Customer service contacted the plane immediately, but we were told they were not there. Clearly little effort was spent to find them and Austrian Airline has not helped."
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 seats were comfy and the pilots were skilled, food was average."
Cons: "The handles in between the seats could've been better by being able to be completely raised."
Cons: "I didn't like putting two family on different seats far from each other"
Pros: "Keep it up with great services. !! Thank you!"
Pros: "Smooth flying"
Cons: "Choice of movies"
Cons: "1. Ordered special meal but it didn’t come. Maybe because I took a ticket the same day. 2. Delayed in NY and as result missed my connection in Helsinki"
Pros: "Good food."
Cons: "Entertainment TV did not work. Flight attendants were unable to fix it. Made for a long, boring 7.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Finnair had the worst leg room I've ever had in 50 years of traveling. It was so TIGHT that my knees were pressing up agains the seat in front of me the whole 8 hours of flight, even though I am only 5'7"! I felt really sorry for those passengers who were taller. Finnair also lost my checked in bag and delivered it 36 hours later without providing any compensation. Coming back the flight was delayed due to mechanical reasons, which caused a number of passengers miss connecting flights. This is one of the things that can happen to any airline, but only Finnair failed to provide an agent to take care of the passengers who missed their flights. So, after a 2 hour delay and 7 hours of traveling in the air, the stranded passengers had to find an agent in JFK who would rebook their flights. One of the worst traveling experiences. Will never travel Finnair again!"
Pros: "Very nice staff. Probably one of the best flights"
Pros: "calming environment, finnish style"
Cons: "on the flight to new york i got a game sandwich. i like that. brining finnish culture to us. but on the way from new york to helsinki i got a boring bagel."
Cons: "The plane landed much later than expected, and I missed my connecting flight to Moscow. While I was given another boarding pass, I had to have another layover in St. Petersburg, and fly to Moscow from there. The flight turned out to be much longer, and much more exhausting. My overall experience was unpleasant."
Pros: "modern aircraft, excellent service , nice crew"
Pros: ".My flight left on time ,smooth landing and the cabin temperature seemed more normal than the usual cold interior. Cabin crew were friendly and helpful from JFK to Helsinki and Helsinki back to JFK . Overall a good airline but far from premium."
Pros: "The shortest flight time between NYC and St. Petersburg Russia. Good connecting time, smooth transition in Helsinki."
Cons: "I have never used this airline before and as it was highly rated, I was glad to give it a try. The seats were crammed together very tightly, even for me, a short person! So, the flight was uncomfortable. Then the food was poor. The selection of films was uninspired. The service was indifferent, disinterested, ungenerous. There was something meager, miserly in the whole experience. They are obviously maximizing profits at the expense of the customer, who seems totally disregarded. I would not choose this airline again!"
Pros: "Airplane was nice."
Cons: "I paid $90 for economy comfort for my flight and did not get an economy comfort seat. I am very disappointed with Finnair in this. They will not refund my money at the airport and now I need to go through their home office for a refund. It was bad enough not having any extra leg room on a red eye when you are over 6 feet tall but now I have to jump through hoops to get my money back."
Cons: "Choice of movies"
Pros: "Crew attitude, food, bluberry juice, punctuality"
Cons: "Babies under 1yr need bassinet by regulation, pls implement. Tough to hold kid for 8 hrs, even with baby bjorn - can injure baby's neck!"
Pros: "They were on time"
Cons: "Low level service, quarrel at the check in about size of the hand luggage (fits all standards, excepts self imposed Finnair rule <8 kg). Poor to no service."
Cons: "Seats were too closely spaced. Like a coffin. Will probably not fly Finnair unless the price is next to nothing."
Pros: "Arriving safe."
Cons: "We sat in the plane for 7.5 hours before moving. Airline provided no extra food though served what was meant to be breakfast before landing in the evening. Then they had not even coffee before actually landing. The vegetarian breakfast that was served in the evening had one dry pita bread with two slices of cucumbers and tomatoes, very lousy. Finnair has had that for years. If you order lacto-ovo meal, you get a vegan breakfast, a very low quality one. Why? I paid about $1500 for the flight and would like some service, too."
Cons: "There is no wi-fi There is no possibility to charge your mobile"
Cons: "Usually, in the morning, a light breakfast is served. This time, there was none."
Cons: "I wish I had known this was an American Airlines flight. They're the worst. Delays all the time (including this flight), crew who couldn't care less, uncomfortable seats, general mediocrity. Next time tell your consumers what you're getting into!"
Pros: "Felt captain on the original flight did everything he could"
Cons: "Boarded late, taxi' around for 3 and a half hours, deplaned as flight was canceled, waited 3 hours for next flight which was then cancelled. All understandable until the announced that the flight was reinstated only to be followed by an hour of the clerks unable to put people back on the flight which caused it to be cancelled. Sent to another airport except the free shuttle wasn't running, 50 dollar taxi ride later I got to sleep on the floor until the gates finally opened 5 hours later"
Pros: "Not much to enjoy"
Cons: "The service. 3 hour late flight, had to rebook my connection out of my own pocket. After we got on the plane, we find out the issues were not fixed and had to wait another hour. Terrible food. Yogurt was actually expired, so I had no breakfast. People were all nice as they told me I should have booked the flights together. Hmmm... Maybe you should not have been 4 hours late. I planned my trip with more than enough time to make connection... Called about my travel insurance and found out it kicked in after 6 hour delay. Customer service should never make you feel like the issue is your fault."
Pros: "That I made it safely to my destination. Updates from the cockpit were appreciated. Plane was nearly empty, so I was able to stretch out over severa seats."
Cons: "I haven't heard good things about American Airlines, and now I know why. Probably the oldest plane in the fleet. Entertainment was 2-3 fold down screens from the ceiling. I can't remember the last time I flew on a transatlantic fight with no entertainment- nearly 20 years ago I'm sure. Airplane food is never great, but food options were worse than normal. American Airlines customer service at JFK was horrendous, resulting in several passengers missing their flight. (I was there if 4 hours to spare, but had to wait 1hr+ to have my birthdate changed in the system.)"
Pros: "It was cancelled"
Cons: "It was cancelled"
Pros: "American Airlines flight didn't even have tvs, chairs were old and outdated. Not worth the price. Now days there are some standards that are expected"
Pros: "Flight was operated by American and they really absolutely need to update their planes on the JFK-CDG route. It is the only airline that does not provide individual screens, the seats barely recline and the air quality on board on board lives a lot to be desired as the plane odor is just not good."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Loading was like a cattle car. Drinks were slow to be offered. No drinks until after food was served more than one hour into the flight. No one ever seemed to check if I needed anything. When I did, there was no call-button. Seats were from the 90's and VERY narrow. I would NEVER pay for First/Business class on Finnair again. It was very poor."
Pros: "Other than the fact that it's a direct flight from jfk to Helsinki, there's not much else to like about it"
Cons: "Even though we paid extra for comfort seats, the seats were extremely uncomfortable! Not just the lack of sufficient leg room (especially when the person in front reclined) but most importantly the quality of the cushions. They were like cardboard and extremely uncomfortable to sit on. We were not able to sleep at all due to the discomfort! Additionally, they lost my luggage. It has been more than 24 hrs since I landed and I still haven't heard anything from them as to where my luggage was, when I should expect it why it still hasn't been delivered. Overall, a terrible experience."
Pros: "Entertainment choices were good."
Cons: "The flight attendants were noisy, walking back and forth, so it was hard to rest, more like stomping. Was not pleased with flight attendant who served me, was kinda cocky and not friendly, which spoiled the customer service experience. Not enough leg room, cramped. Wish they had decaf tea. Other than that we arrived safely, so I'm very appreciative."
Cons: "Very old plane No leg room No tv Grumpy crew Over an hour delayed"
Pros: "Fabulous crew, easy flight with just a few periods of chop - captain kept us well aware of what was happening at all times."
Cons: "Poor entertainment (no individual units on seats), and the 767-300 has almost no leg room in economy."
Cons: "Terrible wait to depart. Altered my pick up plans in Barcelona and made me incur in extra expenses"
Pros: "The crew members were very pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "The food was easily the worst I've ever had on an international flight and entertainment was virtually non-existent as the view from my "premium" bulkhead seat was obstructed by the overhead storage. This American Airways aircraft is in serious need of updating if it is to continue to be used as international transportation."
Pros: "Finnair floor crew very polite & knowledgeable"
Cons: "Plane was extremely old, no entertainment nothing was working, EuroAtlantic Airways crew showed how very inexperienced they were when they had to "handle" frustrated passengers"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed, flight crew was not very friendly, plane was extremely old and uncomfortable. In flight entertainment was not working for me and many other passengers. Food was very bland and took long to be served. Service and flight in general fell very very short of what I expected."
Cons: "very old plane, food choices limited, entertainment system not working"
Pros: "Everything about the flight was good"
Cons: "no food on the first flight no private tv they tell you can have wi fi entertainment but you have to pay for it the staff was rude tell also told me my cary on luggage could not be taken on board because there was no more space so i had to cary all my things for two flights but once i came in into the plane there was plenty of space. the seats had a very low head rest"
Pros: "Great flight. Check in had to be done manually but the agents were plentiful and it was quick and easy. Great movie selection on the flight and the chicken and rice tasted great as well. Would recommend this airline."
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "Very friendly, witty cabin crew. Great customer service."
Pros: "I had tsa which started the trip in a wonderful way! On time. Captain seemed nice and competent. The crew nice too."
Cons: "I flew American not finnair. Very confusing. I paid 65$ for a better seat. It was further forward but not worth the money and the others around me I don't think they paid extra. No movies. Couldn't see the screen."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment on flight"
Cons: "Boarding process was very unorganized, no lines people were cutting each other, planes are old and dirty. Food and service was just ok."
Pros: "The entertainment was really up to date and easily accessible"
Cons: "My flight was delayed but I was able to catch my connection flight. (After running through the Madrid airport). Then when I arrived in Berlin I come to find out my bags were still in Madrid."
Pros: "We took of and landed on time."
Cons: "We hit significant turbulence. The captain did nothing to reassure us and did not even instruct us to remain in our seats with seat belts fastened. Extremely unprofessional and uncaring. Very old plane with screens for movies overhead in the aisles every 10 or 12 rows. First movie was a Disney cartoon for children. Second was a movie that was for adolescent girls. Then we had a terrible cable tv show. Finally they put on "American Hustle" which was about 10 minutes from the end when we landed. Did they give any thought at all to this? Plane was extremely crowded. Very little leg room. I booked this flight on Finnair after checking their ontime and safety record. The carrier was American. I think you should know who the carrier is BEFORE you book and pay for the flight. There are some airlines I prefer not to use and there are some airlines that I would NEVER use. This is a really serious lack of relevent information."
Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "Seats too narrow"
Pros: "Amazing crew, fast boarding."
Cons: "Uninspired food. I was served the same meals 30 years ago."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the ease of boarding and how smooth the flight went. The airline crew was friendly and the food was great."
Cons: "I wish that I was informed ahead of time that SAS GO LITE flights do not include check-in baggage. I ended up paying $109 instead of $60 because I was unaware that the fees change the day of departure. This upset me."
Pros: "Crew on EWR to ARN was so-so. They lock restrooms at the back because they don't people hanging around the kitchen in the back. Also, the one cabin crew does not say Excuse Me when he needs to pass- he just touches you and pushes you aside Also, the one cabin crew"
Pros: "The onboarding process was awesome! The rest was mediocre at best. The cabin was friendly but not helpful. They had weird policies which we have never heard or seen elswhere. The flight had huge screens that won't turn off, it was freezing cold and the crew had no idea how to help."
Cons: "More knowledgeable crew and maybe more crew members, as there were too few and the service took more than 2 hours to complete. Never seen that happen on a 7 hour flight."
Pros: "Crew was business only."
Cons: "More engaged crew. The"
Pros: "The movie section and food were very good"
Cons: "The temperature of the flight was out of control it was very hot for the full 9 hr there was something wrong with the plane and the crew was not addressing it."
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Gluten free meal was selected and paid for before the flight, but for some reason the crew didn't have the option available for me once on board. Nevertheless, they tried to be their best. More drink's without extra charge. Follow Lufthansa service and all will be grand."
Pros: "Great food, typically on time and very prompt. entertainment was good. It was an older plane so the actual screens and monitors or outdated."
Cons: "There were several babies crying for at least 2/3 hours and of course it is not the fault of the crew or airline. But that definitely left a lot of people dissatisfied with an overnight flight in which we are hoping to rest before arriving in Copenhagen. Seats are getting smaller and smaller. Spaces are very tight but that seems to be the norm with all airlines"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight from Copenhagen to Geneva since flight from Newark left over an hour late.. They booked me on a flight to Zurich and then to Geneva. Had a connection to France booked separately that I had to move."
Pros: "Efficient and on-time service."
Cons: "Tiny seats that are inappropriate for international travel."
Cons: "We had three hour delay due to thunderstorms."
Cons: "Upon landing in EWR on United, per my reservation on this site my connection was on SAS to Copenhagen. Upon arrival in EWR, I received an email from this site saying my SAS flight "may be canceled". I immediately headed to the terminal where SAS was and went into the lounge to speak to an agent. The women I spoke to could not have been more rude. She told me my flight was canceled and that she did not have access to any details because that was United's responsibility. I told her that could not be the case because my flight was on SAS so if they canceled the flight, I would like to understand what my options are given that I had a tight window upon arrival into my final destination into Dubrovnik so I could not be too late in landing outside of my original reservation. She told me that I had to talk to United and did not even acknowledge why there was a cancellation or anything other than the SAS flight I was on was cancelled. She barely even helped me to understand where my luggage was which I was very concerned would be lost given the issue with the flight cancellation. As a result of all of this, it turns out I was put onto a United flight that now had MORE connections. I had to now go to Frankfurt to Vienna to Dubrovnik, all with really tight connections AND now I no longer was on the same flight as my friend who I was traveling with. SAS did not help with any of this or care to assist in ANY way. They told me it was out of their hands and I had to talk to United. AWFUL service when SAS had cancelled the flight! I had no choice but to take the re-routed flights. I ended up running to my gates and barely catching all of my connections which made for a very stressful travel experience to start my long awaited vacation. After paying the high cost I did for my flight, I am extremely frustrated with my experience as I ended up having more connections, tight connections, awful customer service and a really stressful trip. This is NOT would I would expect for how much I paid and out of the quality of an airline. I would like to receive some type of compensation for the extreme inconvenience of landing 3+ hours after my original arrival time, being broken up with my friend who I was traveling with, not being given any options for my travel, terrible customer service assistance, and no acknowledgement from SAS to help me in any way."
Pros: "On time and clean airline."
Cons: "Not helpful with stroller. Wanted us to sign off that they were not responsible for if stroller broke while handling it. Insane. They said it “might “ to big even though they didn’t know what measurements would be too big. We’ve flown for the last 3 years with this stroller but different airlines and never heard of such thing. (Since it’s the smallest city mini double stroller there is and folds flat- super small!) first time we flew SAS all. We didn’t sign anything and gate checked it and all was fine but some incompetent crew at check in. Not very helpful finding seats with all four of us. Put us in different rows. Could work on their customer service for sure."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. Complimentary bottles of water. Comfortable blankets."
Cons: "We arrived late in Copenhagen and I had 20 minutes to catch my connecting flight. Even though I was checked-in for the Copenhagen to Athens flight it left without me. I was then transferred through Prague to get to Athens and again missed my connecting flight through there. Now I am stuck in Prague looking for a flight to Athens and most likely will miss my next flight from Athens to Karpathos and will again be stuck in Athens because there are no flights out to Karpathos until 19 of May, 3days from now. I was physically in the Copenhagen airport and could have made that flight, I feel that since I was already checked in they should have waited for me and allowed me to board. Now I will Be missing work!"
Pros: "The crew was great and the food as well"
Cons: "Boarding chaotic and Newark airport is very inconvenient. No signs to terminal B and the sky train with the compartment system is not very functional. I am tall person and sitting in the middle of the middle row was very inconvenient wilh not enough leg space."
Cons: "late. support afterwards was awful."
Pros: "Timely & helpful"
Cons: "The flight from EWR to Oslo was delayed by over 2 hours which meant I would miss my next connection... and I understand that happens sometimes. But, it was after hours on the airline number phone number and the fly.com customer service could not help with finding an alternate connection from Oslo to FRA. It was frustrating to then have to wait at Oslo airport for another 4 hours before the new connecting flight."
Pros: "Really appreciated how helpful everyone was, from check-in at Newark to arrival. The entertainment system worked well, too. Aside from the two issues I describe below, SAS seems to be extremely efficient and well-run."
Cons: "There was some mix-up - not sure where - but I did requested a vegetarian meal and it wasn't in the system. I'd also requested an aisle seat due to a hip issue and was told I'd have one - but when I went to check in, I'd been put in a center seat in a bulkhead. I was able to change but it was the last row of the plane. We the gate they were able to move me up at the last minute - but this all could've been much easier."
Pros: "Again, the flight was fine, and cabin crew was friendly"
Cons: "When I went to the SAS counter to print my boarding pass, the counter lady couldn't find my information. She left me at the counter and went inside to find out more info. Then when she came out, she started interrogating me forcefully, about why I got United involved with my check in for my first leg of the trip, because I am causing her to have all this extra work and etc. How dare she!!! First of all. I didn't want to involve United, the service counter at SAS was closed the entire time, and the flight on my first leg was operated by United, so i had no choice but to go to United. In fact I should be the one asking why I had to involve United in the first place. Where was SAS when I needed their help and guidance???? Why was their counter closed the entire time??? Such a poorly organized airline, I'll be wary to fly with SAS again."
Pros: "Food, staff and video access was excellent."
Cons: "The seating was very uncomfortable and cramped!!"
Pros: "Upgraded to business class"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour & half"
Pros: "Nice TV's. Good selection"
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude to English speakers."
Pros: "I was running late for the flight due to bad traffic en route to the airport. Nonetheless, the staff was very understanding, and called me to the gate once I finally arrived to assign me a seat since I wasn't given one when I checked in online. They upgraded me without my asking... to an economy plus exit row, so I had lots of room during the 8 hour flight to Copenhagen. The plane was new - an Airbus A330 - and the flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Entire crew very attentive!! We ate like Kings!"
Cons: "Long layover in Newark! My fault for not noticing when I booked it!"
Pros: "I chose SAS since I have used this airline on most of my travels to Norway. It has been without any problems and I highly recommend it. The staff all try to make you comfortable and do not hesitate to get whatever you ask for. I have no plan to change plane. Thank you."
Cons: "I do not like the way they conduct their business from the office. I know they are very busy like any other airlines but please return our calls and answer questions as we are fully entitled to their attention using their airline. . Thank you."
Pros: "Made it safely to destination"
Cons: "Series of unfortunate events: 1. No air vents in seats. Plane was very warm the entire flight. My husband and I spent 6+ hours sweating in our seats. 2. Dinner was not served until 9:30/10PM. By the time we received our food in the back, it was cold. 3. For guests who wanted to sleep during the red eye, the lights were not turned off until after dinner and cleanup, which meant only 2 or so hours of sleep in dark."
Pros: "Great movies. Lcd Screen is awesome"
Cons: "Somewhat unfriendly crew"
Cons: "We were unaware of the need to buy an infant ticket on international flights. When we checked in to our SAS flight in Newark, we were given a boarding pass for our infant without any heads up about the issue. We also got help with ordering bassinet from the gate agent, all without anything surfaced. It wasn't until we were boarding that we learned that we needed to buy a ticket and pay $400+ and nearly didn't make the flight. Can someone follow up now, as we need to make sure this issue has now been resolved for our return flight to SFO on Thursday July 6th"
Pros: "The airline is very professional and the crew were very courteous."
Cons: "During my layover, the airline did not post the gate for my flight to Athens until an hour before, which caused me to have to run across the terminal to another set of gates."
Cons: "The flight arrived an hour late."
Pros: "I was able to sleep most of the flight."
Cons: "Plane left Newark an hour late and I missed my connecting flight in Oslo. Once I did get on a flight from Oslo to Copenhagen, there was no room for my carry on luggage. The stewardess took it and said it would be put in cargo, but now they can't find it! Two bad experiences with SAS in a row. Don't want to use them again."
Pros: "I felt valued. The plane was clean and in good condition. The flight crew and attendants were very professional and took good care of the passengers. It was a quiet and stress-free travel experience."
Cons: "Can't think of a single thing."
Pros: "Very good service with excellent entertainment. Nice smooth flight. An excellent value."
Cons: "Passport control in Copenhagen is too slow to allow for a 35 minute layover. We missed our flight to Stuttgart and had to go to the transfers counter. The service at the transfers counter was outstanding and they put us onto a Lufhansa flight. In the end we got to Stuttgart 5 hours later than planned."
Cons: "1) on the plane, they announced a choice of two meals and I enquired why did I get one without choice and they told me the second choice was an option only for 'economy plus' !! That was a rude situation....I felt cheated and then insulted . 2) CPH - Nice : The breakfast or the included orange drink gave me an upset stomach and bad case of Hemorroides. 3) I accepted a glass of tomatoe juice and when I asked for a coke with my lunch , the stewardess said I had only right to one drink and would have to pay the rest....really ? - wine used to be free and now a glass costs $4...really ?? 4) I arrived at CPH airport for my transfer .. the flight was yet not on the screen but no one gave any instruction and no officials of any kind were around to enquire....a cleaning crew finally directed me correctly. 5) the security line in New York to board was ridiculously long...someone shouted to take off our smelly shoes...really ?? 6) most were directed to the right with four snaking unending lines to one security check . From time to time others were directly directed ed to the left where there was no line and option of two security checks. Half way through my wait , most were directed to the left and all who were 'late', were let out first to their gate. The whole experience before, on the plane and after was not worth the money...least of all a pleasant one."
Pros: "Even though I did not get the seat I paid extra for, it was a great flight."
Pros: "The flight from Newark to Stockholm was late, so I was late for the flight to Vilnius,had to recheck-in and wait for 6 hours."
Pros: "We got to sit in the emergency aisle so I can't complain about comfort. The staff was really friendly (although they were really rude on the way over 10 days earlier, so I guess we just got lucky with a nice crew for this one)."
Cons: "You only get one free non-alcoholic drink on this flight and that's really stingy for a 7+ hour a long haul. Drinks should be free on a long haul, especially non-alcoholic ones. There aren't any free small snacks like chips or peanuts. You have to pay for everything and the menu is exorbitantly over priced. It's a cheap and insulting customer strategy. They can save a few bucks in overhead on each customer this way, but they are losing money in the long run because I'll never book with them again due to their tawdry actions. I doubt I am alone."
Pros: "The food, the comfortable seats, boarding."
Cons: "The entertainment options, very few movies, limited kinds of music"
Pros: "The thoughtfulness and competency of the personnel. I needed wheelchair assistance and found that every was very attentive to my needs and very competent, especially the ones assigned to get me from place to place. Even in Rome, where we had to deplane on the tarmac, I had a young woman and a young man to assist me and they helped me in every way possible."
Cons: "I needed a gluten free meal and found it rather dry and unappetizing."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "No food option, Drinks are not free(international flight), no toilet paper"
Pros: "The food and movies were good."
Cons: "Didn't have enough money to sit in a seat with leg room."
Pros: "Passengers nice"
Cons: "Food options not everyone eats chicken"
Pros: "No delays, early landing which made my 50 minute layover seamless."
Cons: "I have no complaints"
Pros: "We were within a reasonable range of on time arriving, although we were delayed 30 minutes at the start due to fueling issues. Crew was average: no problems, no extraordinary acts of kindness. Great selection of movies to watch onboard."
Cons: "Tight seats, lousy food, even for airplane food."
Pros: "Flight is on time. Adequate amount of time to transfer. Boarding was smooth. On line check in site was simple and user friendly."
Cons: "Few selections of movies, and some have no subtitles. In order to select sests, I had to call."
Pros: "Really pleasant flight. Excellent pilot, good crew."
Cons: "Nothing! This was one of my best flights ever."
Cons: "My wife requested a vegan menu as she has allergic to chicken and egg, and it was accepted a week before the flight. But a normal food was served to her, so we said to the crew to change the meal. She, the crew, said "we don't know the request, we don't have more vegan meal." She didn't apologize about that, additionally she requested to show a confirmation number with an arrogant attitude. Anyway we asked to bring a vegetarian meal, she brought it, and we asked her if it contains egg (sometimes seasoning contains egg). She said she would check and come back soon, but she never appeared. What a rude crew she was. What an unsophisticated system the flight company has. We were so disappointed."
