The crews are not friendly and not attentive. I was waiting for toilet for a sometime and the crews were distributing food. They passed me as I waited for the toilet and asked me if I want a pizza and a drink of my choice. I said yes, pizza and a water please and I am seated at Seat 17G. The crew noted and said will give me a pizza later at the seat but at the same time she passed me a glass of water as I still waited outside for toilet. My seats are not near to toilet and the air stewardess expected me to hold the glass of water while waiting for my turn outside of toilet clearly demonstrates a lack of common sense. I also indicated that I wanted the drink to be at the seat but she hurried away with the tray. My flight at Emirates was booked by KLM due to flight delay from Zurich to Amsterdam. In my original flight with KLM, I had clearly indicated and chosen vegetarian diet but such option was absent in the Emirates flight. There was a crying baby throughout the entire flight seated at the row of 17 at flight from Dubai to KL. The cabin crews did not do anything or try to control the situation with the crying baby which was already bad with parents who did not control the baby. We heard so many good reviews about Emirates and was excited to experience Emirates for the first time but it turned out to be a bad experience.
Cons: "Too crammed. Passengers don’t raise seats during meals."
Pros: "On time. Efficient. Great crew."
Cons: "The sandwiches on the quick hop between abidjan and accra aren't that great."

Pros: "Missed connection"
Cons: "Try to be on time"
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Fabulous flight and trip to Australia"
Cons: "Ahmedabad is the worst of Indian international airports. Emirates can't manage that zoo."
Cons: "On our departure flight the entertainment system stopped working completely at my daughter's seat mid-flight (the whole screen went black, remote control and all). The flight attendant tried and was unable to fix it, so they moved a passenger in the row my husband and I were in and put my daughter there. None of the entertainment systems worked well, the touch screens were barely responsive - they definitely need updating. On our return flight the power in the whole row that my three pre-teen kids were in stopped working. Again the flight attendant tried unsuccessfully to fix. My husband and I switched rows with them so they could continue to watch movies. Each time we called the flight attendant she came, said she would try to reset the systems and that we should wait a few minutes. We waited and ultimately had to go find her again to be told the same thing again. After this happened three times she sent the manager over who said she could not fix it since that would mean that the whole area would have to be reset and they didn't want to disturb anyone else. The only solution they offered was to give my husband and I open seats (not together and not near our kids) around the cabin. We did not want to split up, so my husband and I spent the rest of the hours of the flight in the dark (lights didn't work either as they are connected to the system) reading with the light from our cell phones. None of the people who came to assist us really seemed to care at all about our comfort or situation."
Pros: "We went almost 4hours without water served"
Cons: "Far too low temperature settings"
Pros: "Crew were very professional and polite, entertainment was awesome all the latest movies, food was pretty good. Thanks for free wine and drinks. Crew were very kind."
Cons: "Though more comfortable than other flights like KLM, it was still a little cramped"
Cons: "poor service . Unresponsive cabin crew"
Pros: "I liked the passengers"
Cons: "dirty toilets,clogged,seats dirty,crew not enthousiastic, left overs from previews passengers,expired candies."
Pros: "Breakfast and lunch were both tasty"
Cons: "Had to wait an hour for our bags at BHX"
Cons: "Was not told that my luggage was on a weght system and not a piece system for a n international flight. I ended up paying $249 for my extra suitcase that weighted 25 lbs and it was only a 2.5 hour flighr!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."
Cons: "I could not pick my seat in advance. It wasn’t clear while booking that this was the case with emirates. I could only pick my seat when online check in was allowed."
Pros: "The flight was excellent and the service was awesome I can say that I liked the flight and it was comfortable Thanks flydubai"
Pros: "i like the cabin crew"
Pros: "Everything except landing"
Cons: "Rough landing"
Pros: "The food was decent."
Cons: "While checking in, they demanded me to show them my ticket back to the US and insinuated that I will stay in Rio permanently. There was a very disorganized line to get into the plane. They also forgot to give me immigration forms for Brazil."
Cons: "No proper communication provided on gate about the delay. Meal voucher was given very late and hence did not make any sense. We were completely uncertain about our onward travel since no information was available till we reached Dubai which was very frustrating."
Pros: "The crew was very helpfully and nice"
Cons: "Other passengers and there dramas"
Cons: "server told person asking to take away her tray that she did not have three hands"
Pros: "Generally good standard, nothing to sit about but there was a selection of recent and older films and TV, OK food and fairly comfortable seats."
Cons: "While the food was ok, there were some odd omissions from the vegetarian meals that sometimes made them seem smaller or worse value compared to the non-veggie options. Still better than I've had on some other airlines though."
Cons: "Missed flight because checked bags took to long to get back"
Pros: "Very good services by Emirates, flight was on time, leg room between seats was sufficient, meals were good and staff behavior was good"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was good, with many, many options to choose from. The headphones provided were certainly more comfortable than anything I have experienced on other airlines."
Cons: "The boarding process is chaotic. Especially so in Dubai. Moreover, they do not allow a laptop bag in addition to the normal carry-on baggage. Every other airline I have flown allows this. What is even more frustrating is that a women's purse is allowed, so I saw women carrying giant bags with their laptops, etc. in those bags, whereas I had to stuff mine into my carry-on briefcase. This is not normal (as in, other airlines allow it), is not mentioned in the ticket, not mentioned while given the boarding pass, BUT is strictly enforced at the very last minute right before entering the plane."
Cons: "Medicore service tryed almost all major airlines,"
Pros: "Customer service, food, the flight in general was good."
Cons: "I lost TV signal a few times and therefore wasn't able to watch the games I was interested in. But I understand this is beyond your control at times but the whole system would benefit from an upgrade. The touch screen sometimes takes a while to respond so making the process a little tedious."
Pros: "Great staff and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Other passengers..."
Cons: "Well Emirates left me 1 day in Boston and it wasn't my plan...Also Emirates front desk clerk tell my boyfriend he smell very hard to alcohol and maybe couldn't go in the flight and he didn't drink any alcohol."
Cons: "No one weighted my cabin bag while checking in. Before the security control, Emirates ground staff stopped me and weighted my cabin bag that was 8.4, around a kg extra. They didn't allow me boarding until I threw 4 shirts to the garbage and I reduced the weight. Staff was just unbelievably rude."
Pros: "Flight was smooth with lovely crew. Boarding process went without hitch."
Cons: "Checkin crew were not that friendly. I was transiting from JFK and I was asked to remove a special item from my checked in bag as it was fragile . So I had to put it in my hand luggage. However in Dubai, the Check-in crew refused to allow me to board and I ended up paying $180 to have my hand bag checked in. This was unfair as the device I had to put in my carryon had it'seems weight already added to my allowed luggage."
Cons: "There was a group of teenagers sitting in 8 seats in two of the middle rows right next to me. They spent the whole flight climbing all over the seats and each other. They were very loud, often banging into other passenger's seats, and leaving their stuff in the aisle where people were tripping over things as they walked by. They were really inconsiderate of other passengers - many of whom were trying to sleep on a 13-hour flight. It would have been nice if the crew would have told them to be quieter and more respectful of other passengers."
Pros: "food courtesy boarding"
Pros: "This my first experience with the Emirates flights, heard so many good things about them prior to my flight, but never imagined it would exceed the description I heard. Good job Emirates, keep up the good work. The service was great. The seats were comfy and spacious. There was a variety of food."
Cons: "Since the WI-FI service is provided to the passengers portable devices, why is added to the entertainment service. It helps to reduce the number of devices used the passengers."
Pros: "The good hospitality and customer service from the airline staff and agents over the phone."
Cons: "I disliked the feeling of being targeted and discriminated against. I was forced to undergo additional unwarranted extensive security checks as I was boarding the plane. I was asked to step aside and have my carry on rechecked while I was being interrogated by an officer. This is all in addition to going through an extensive security check at the security checkpoint. This procedure is Unjust and Humiliating for innocent passengers try to take a flight with absolutely nothing to hide."
Cons: "The Staff always seems to be very rude - i see how they are to others and and also to me. They always seem either rushed and frustrated - this applies to all the flights i have been on lately with Emirates"
Pros: "Food and alcohol was plentiful especially after a long flight"
Cons: "The 777 is a bit cramped compared to A-380"
Pros: "Everything was very good"
Overbooked flight. My wife and I got split up. I have a replaced disk in my neck (kids behind me constantly kickin my seat) made for a painful and unpleasant flight. (Staff did nothing to prevent this)

Pros: "Excellent Cabin services."
Pros: "Yes the crew was amazing and food was good"
Cons: "Rest area could had been better"
Pros: "The crew was really sweet and making sure passengers were comfortable."
Cons: "Crew is very slow in serving and removing spiked plates. Food menu is very limited and not even asking for Tea or coffee, very poor service, feedback alone they ask verbally and thank to be positive. Late boarding not proper announcements"
Cons: "Again very impressed with Qatar Airways service on the board"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and delightful."

I emailed Qatar you know what they said? "Seat assignments can never guarantee." No voucher or anything offered! Fly something else!!"
Pros: "Entertainment and boarding"
Pros: "wanted an isle seat because of back issues and was arranged without any hassle."
Cons: "17 hour transit in Doha and no accommodation was provided. Though I booked it from a third party I belive QA is at least responsible for making sure that the vendors let the user know that there will be NO accommodation provided. This information is also not readily accessible when searching online."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Horrible flight experience and old planes without USB plug inn and no seat entertainment"
Pros: "Q-suits. Very comfortable and private. Great upgrade to the 777. WiFi now available for very reasonable price"
Cons: "Bus transfer to Termial 5 is VERY poorly organized and takes over an hour. This makes it harder to get to Terminal 5 even if you don't have to clear security again. Seats had a bar under the padding at about the position of my hips. Uncomfortable to sleep for several hours"
Pros: "Qatae Airways is second to non as always"
Pros: "Service, crew, food"
Cons: "Seats are small"

Pros: "Did not provide hotel even in a 10 hours lay over. The security personel does not know how to behave with passengers."
Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "On a 16 hour journey, we only had 2 meals and no snacks. I usually fly Lufthansa. They provide 2 meals and a third snack (usually a pizza) and keep additional snacks and drinks fully stocked in the back of the plane. None of that existed on this flight. The crew was very uninterested. Seemed very absent and not into assisting patrons. Overall, not what I have experienced on prior Qatar Airways flights. To add insult to injury, I was sitting next to an EXTREMELY smelly person, which didn't make the experience any easier :( Not the airlines responsibility to ensure patrons exercise proper hygiene, but that didn't help the situation with my hungry growling stomach."
Cons: "Nothing disposable about the airline but booling process gave me a headace"
Pros: "just enough time in Doha between flights. Not too long not too short!"
Cons: "Asian vegetarian food can be of better quality."
Pros: "The crew lead for Doha to Dhaka flight was very responsive and proactive. The food on this flight was very good."
Cons: "Air vent was not available for Business class between Doha and Dhaka; which made the temperature hotter than my liking."
Pros: "Boarding was very ease and helpful for my family while I was traveling with kids I appreciate that fact that customer service at boarding was reached out to my wife to help and make us feel great thru the process thanks"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and not interefering in long flight"
Cons: "Flight from Qatar to Seoul was quite old I believe. USB on my chair did not work and media in LCD screens were not new enough. seats were quite old and not convenient for 10 hours flight."
Cons: "Lack of internet access is not acceptable during long flights."
Pros: "Service is fantastic. Comfort in business class. Great food. You can't ask for nothing better. The lounge in Doha is breath taking."
Pros: "Good in-flight service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "Service and crue was good"
Cons: "The legroom is ok but the space between two seats is very tight and felt very cramped throughout."
Pros: "I wish this airline had more service within the US!! This airline is impeccable. We flew 16 hours from Doha to Miami and it was amazing. At the airport in Doha the flight representative went above and beyond to accommodate better seating for myself and my son. Luckily it was not a full flight and lots of the passengers had plenty of space. The staff is VERY friendly and VERY professional. I will definitely be giving this airline my hard earned money in the future for reservations as much as I can!!!!"
Cons: "Not one thing!!"
Cons: "A little crowded but still great service."
Pros: "Large monitor and many choices of movies. Good food, efficient boarding."
Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Food choices could be better."
Cons: "Somebody smoke in the bathroom. My husband went and told the crew. But nothing was sone. They should have announced in the plane and action should have taken."
Pros: "Comfortable and easy"
Cons: "Departs in early morning"
Pros: "The aircraft was perfect it self. The crew were nice"
Cons: "They changed my chiled seat twice and they couldnt find a place for both of us togetger."
Missed our connection and offered little to no help. Never again.
Cons: "Our stewardess was not the friendliest!"
Cons: "Too much nonsense with carry on and check in language. I paid for my seat but they changed it for better balance of the plain. Really I weigh 165 lbs. Once the plane reaches altitude they let me take my seat. However the plane was barely occupied and somebody with closer and took my seat."
Cons: "The food is good k"
Pros: "Amazing - they had a full dinner for a 9:55pm flight, with real silverware, complementary alcohol, for economy passengers! Crew extremely professional and efficient."
Pros: "The entertainment was good"
Cons: "The food on the 2nd flight was bad"
Pros: "Crew was great. Phenomenal even."
Cons: "Economy seating, so hard to complain, I got what I paid for, but 1-2” more between seats would have kept my knees out of the lady’s back in the seat in front of me..."
Cons: "Actually making the flight"
Cons: "Movies , Wi-Fi , Live Shows"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and attentive"
Cons: "Leg room on my first flight (longest leg of the trip) was not much and when the person in front of me leaned their chair back, my knees were touching the chair."
Cons: "The HVAC system was apparently defective and passengers in the mid-section of the plane, myself included, were bundled up in winter jackets and blankets."
Pros: "The crew was great! The entertainment was pretty good too."
Cons: "The cabin was WAY too warm."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew was kind and gracious."
Cons: "Seats were extremely cramped. Once the person in the front reclined their seat it was very difficult to get out of the seat. Also better guidance is needed during boarding. Finally, my hand carry was checked 4 times by 4 different people, which means your staff doesn’t trust their own colleagues."
Pros: "Check in agent was extremely helpful in expediting both me and my bags after a late check-in. Flight attendants very friendly and helpful, food excellent. If Swiss Air flew everywhere I need to go, I would fly them every time!"
Pros: "Great staff and air flight attendants"
Pros: "They have a policy of letting kids under 5 board early which was a boon to us! The veggie pasta was really delicious."
Cons: "The delay to fly was the only issue"
Cons: "Despite listing items desired for breakfast per seat assignment, flight attendant still got it wrong."
Pros: "A very friendly and attentive crew and a decent meal. Comfort is still iffy in coach but better than most American airlines. Good selection of movies to pass the time."
Cons: "Seats in coach are cramped and some have an electrical box under the seat in front of you, so there is no room for your legs or carry on bag. Bathrooms keep getting smaller to jam in more seats."
Pros: "The movies were good, the food was good. Servers were kind and helpful. Clean and overall positive flight."
Cons: "Several delays and gate changes."
Cons: "The way the movies, needed extra parts. No touch screen"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled and re-booked today. We’re so frustrated and inconvenience us. Very stressful! Swiss Air notification in email was sent short of notice."
Cons: "I was sitting on seat # 25 A : The distance between the seats in rows # 24 and # 25 was about 6 Inches less than between the other seat rows in front of us and across the isle thus making it VERY uncomfortable when the seat in front was in the sleeping condition. Peter M. Endriss"
Pros: "The line for screening for initial security at Ben Gurion was ridiculously long. Almost one hour in line before we even could be interviewed."
Cons: "Boarding and in-flight experience were excellent."
Pros: "Everything except the seats."
Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."
Pros: "The flight was delayed from Newark to Zurich but they were able to rearrange my connecting flight before landing. The Swiss staff were very courteous and amicable. The food was also tasty."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 85 minutes from Newark to Zurich"
Pros: "Good staff, good boarding, good announcements"
Cons: "The chairs are so small!"
Pros: "Clean, modern plane, friendly and attentive crew"
Cons: "Cramped space in economy!"
Cons: "It was very late, with us on it."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. The crew was very nice and amenities were fine."
Cons: "My luggage was lost. I had to wait in line forever to file a report. Luckily it was sent to my hotel later that evening."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. They were very efficient and went about their duties without disturbing the passengers."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Pros: "Best food and attention that I've had on an airline in 20 years. Really. I was telling a friend today, Swiss Air started with drinks, gave us a Parisian baguette sandwich, gave us a healthy breakfast of yoghurt warm croissant butter jam orange juice, drinks again, and several passengers surrounding me got special attention, one woman with a baby, a disabled person, and a teenager that was 6'5" was relaocated by the flight attendant without him even asking to a bulkhead seat for more comfort. You don't see this kind a attention to detail on any US flights or US airlines, so I noticed it. It was as if I was traveling back in the 70's or 80's when Airlines would compete for our dollars with their service. I mentioned to my friend that if I had a choice and Swiss Air was one of the choices, I'd choose Swiss Air over any other airline."
Pros: "Stewards are very kind and friendly unlike those in US flights."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable, not the leg room but they just felt a little worn down and tilting forward"
Pros: "The seats on Swiss' A330-300 are so comfortable in economy. Easy to find a good position to sleep in. Embrear from Zurich to Oslo is tighter, but food and service like in the old days! Bravo!"
Pros: "The flight attendant told me I had to keep my seat upright throughout dinner so the person behind me could eat. I wanted to sleep and couldn't do so without reclining. The seats are tight but I was in the economy plus section so I thought she should have let me recline instead of physically moving my seat upright. And for someone who cared so much about the seat at dinner no one cared about me the rest of the flight. I slept through breakfast and no one left me a tray even. Plus, I had my seat back the rest of the flight including landing which I didn't realize. Isn't it their job to ensure our seats are in upright positions in case we forget or don't realize? Just a very blasé crew."
Cons: "See above regarding the crew. It's not that big of a deal but I really thought the crew was poor. Flight was short and easy enough though."
Pros: "We liked the chocolates, the little things matter. We liked the timing of the flight."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable and the arm rests did not go all the way up."
Pros: "good food, excellent entertainment selection"
Cons: "late boarding, late take off, missed my connection"
Cons: "Seating and foot space was uncomfortable to me."
Pros: "The crew really went out of their way to accomodate and made sure I found my seat, was entertained and was comfortable throughout my flight."
Cons: "It was delayed a little."
Cons: "Newark airport is awful. Can't get food, can't get coffee, can't get a newspaper. I would try to avoid it."
Cons: "On my return journey I was told at check in that there were delays that would mean missing my onward journey from Zurich. I was then rerouted through Istanbul with the promise that I would be well compensated for my troubles. I was told that I would receive a certain amount for every hour I was delayed from my original arrival at end destination. Well I arrived 8 or more hours after I had originally expected (and the reason I booked with Swiss Air was because of the timing and the apparent luxury of the flight). Once I got back home and tried to pursue this amazing compensation I received some of the worst customer service ever and received 0 compensation for the experience. Very disappointed and will never fly swiss airlines again."
Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "I have been flying to Asia on Asian airlines and maybe I have become accustomed to flights and crews that know how to manage a long flight. For example: The crew seemed tentative and untrained. Saw the crew once between the meal at beginning and the meal at the end. I wonder where they can hide for so long on a small plane? Too many announcements by the Captain -- shut up and fly the damn plane! Do you think the crew might replenish the toilet paper on an 8 hour flight? on another note: Seat spacing is adjustable - very close seats Overall--- underwhelmed"
Cons: "I had a good seat, the plane was comfortable and the crew was nice"
Pros: "Night flight. Food is fine."
Pros: "Perfect service, on time"
Pros: "The crew was not overly friendly"
Pros: "Crew was good. Seat uncomfortable and hard."
Cons: "The main economy seats were far too narrow."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Crew, atmosphere, timeliness. I was satisfied overall"
Cons: "Gate number changed couple times before flight departure"
Cons: "Broken monitor and seat"
Pros: "Crew was nice the flight was smooth and comfortable seats."
Pros: "These Comfort+ seats had the most legroom of any airline (Delta, JetBlue, American etc) short of Business class that I can remember in my adult life!"
Cons: "Always need more room"
Cons: "Missed the flight due to the sheer unhelpfulness and incompetence of the gate personnel. They would not let me board, since I was about 10 minutes late. THEN THE PLANE WAS DELAYED FOR ABOUT 2 HOURS!!! I was stranded in NY, overnight, and had to pay hundreds of dollars for a train ticket and a cab."
Pros: "Internet access. Waiting area at JFK with charging stations for every seat and a tablet to order food & drink."
Cons: "Give food to passengers"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "It would have been better if the flight wasn’t 3 hours late."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. With the plane full they managed to serve all with smiles on their faces and solved all problems, including cabin luggage problem."
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "Spacing between seats and overhead luggage storage. They ran out of room before the entire plane had boarded"
Pros: "The flight was on time at departure and 30 minutes on arrival."
Cons: "Since I got a good deal on the ticket, my boarding zone was “Basic”. That kind of sucked, but I still could fit bag in the airplane so it all worked out"
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "In flight service was disappointing."
Cons: "Boarding at JFK.Always messy"
Cons: "After a delay of about an hour on a very full flight the gate agent asked for volunteers to check their rollaboard suitcases. The gate agents then allowed those who checked their rollaboards to board before Zone 1,which was fine. However, a bunch of people without gate check stickers on the rollaboards were also allowed to board before Zone 1, which was aggravating. There was a long delay on the tarmac, during which we had to pull back to the gate or to a maintenance area before we finally took off. When we arrived in Vegas there was no gate for us to pull into, which led to another long delay of an already long and delayed flight."
Pros: "Michael was super polite and helpful. i Traveled with my young son and he took such good care of us."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than an hour. My seat's entertainment system was broken, so an 8 hour flight with not much to do other than sleep."
Cons: "The flight from. JFK to Barcelona was delayed as well. Their computers were down in Atlanta. So everyone had to have their name hand typed into a computer when boarding. Then the pilot said that our bags are usually weighed and computerized for even distribution on the plane. That system was also down, so we sat on the runway waiting for that problem to be fixed. When we arrived at Barcelona, I unpacked and discovered a jacket and pants in my luggage were wet. The only place that could have happened was at JfK during their rain storm and the luggage weight issue."
Pros: "very nice and willing stewardesses"
Cons: "tragic little place for legs, lack of space"
Cons: "Paid extra for a seat that didn't have any extra leg room. The entertainment system was broken for the whole plane during the first 2 hours."
Cons: "My daughter was booked on this itinerary and was finishing her last leg of journey. Complete ticket was booked thru Delta Airlines. Her flight from Amsterdam to New York today operated by KLM, was delayed by few minutes. And Delta flight from JFK to Cleveland DL4084 was preponed by airlines. Result was my daughter was not allowed to board the aircraft. Worst was yet to come. Your staff at the gate offered her a flight to Cleveland for next day at 3:30 pm??? Means around 24 hours later. Is this how you behave with a girl of 19 years, asking her to stay at the airport. She was refused Hotel and Lounge stay by your team!!! Is this what you call customer services??? Obscene services is what I would like to term it as!!! My daughter asked them to give this is writing, which was refused to her. Why are your people scared to put it in writing if everything that you are doing is right by the Law??? I was left with no other option but to book her on American Airlines flight today departing at 9 pm to ensure that little girl doesn’t have to spend close to 24 hours at airport by paying $423. Who is going to bear the loss of money and mental torture that your team has given to me and my daughter???? I shall be awaiting your response as to what do you have to say to this pathetic attitude of your team. Rajesh Mendiratta Sent from my iPhone Rajesh"
Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Cons: "It was not acceptable and very disappointed that flight DL391 from SDQ to NY-JFK was delayed till it left at 4:40pm because there were no crew members to bring the aircraft to STO DGO the night before as it is usually done so that the aircraft sleeps over in las Americas. We were at the airport at 4:30am because the flight was scheduled to depart at 6:05am we were lucky to be able to rebook for a flight SDQ-ATL DL576 for the same day hoping to make the connection ATL-IND. Unfotunately that flight was rerouted to Charlotte due to bad weather conditions with a delay of 3 hrs before it landed in ATL thus missing our connection to INDI and had to sleep in ATL and leave the next day to IND thus missing a meeting commitment that we had in IND. We should and expect to be compensated by Delta for this."
Pros: "Food was amazing tasted and seasoned well. Not bland, really good salad and chicken."
Cons: "Delay. (liked kayak delay updates tho!) crew not very attending and it looked like they didnt care. In order to keep folks busy because of the delay. They gave out immigration and customs papers out, but refused to give pen. I literally didn't had one and answer from the crew was like that. " Excuse me do you have a pen by any chance?" . "NO! I dont! asked them" pointing out to other crew members, -this is the best part- the female stewardess had clearly visibly a pen in her front shirt pocket! Sitting around and trying to kill time and no pen still. While busy with food and other stuff, i fell asleep. Then after a while when going to the restroom i asked the male steward if he would have a pen please, he pointed out they dont have any pens. ( please note he marked on his check board, who is getting which meal on the first class)"
Pros: "Very comfortable and didn't feel cramped. Quick flight."
Cons: "No choice in snack and I couldn't eat what I was given. Staff appeared checked out and not bothered. No entertainment but it was a quick flight."
Pros: "Giid free sandwixh. Very good entertainment system. Good seats."
Pros: "After being redirected and behind on travel plans due to weather and missed flights this was a welcomed relief. Everything went as planned and staff was very helpful."
Pros: "Friendly Crew"
Pros: "Food and movies were good."
Cons: "Didn't leave on time."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants were rude and not very welcoming at all."
Cons: "Price to get a little more space"
Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"
Cons: "I have the worst opinion of the Delta company, when I was flying to Atlanta on October 20 they changed my flight at the last minute I had to leave until my job to take another flight. Just today when returning my suitcase did not arrive they sent it to another destination. I think the company gives very bad service."
Pros: "Decent selection of in-flight entertainment. (The entertainment unit was sub-par to allow full enjoyment.)"
Cons: "Older plane had undersized, non-responsive touch displays so passenger behind felt like a woodpecker. Also, retrofitted to provide in-seat power with metal box under seat in front of you makes it very uncomfortable for window passengers who don't have space to stow bag under seat in front of them or for their feet. (Uncomfortable on a long flight.)"
Cons: "Whatever hack airline you are contracting with to do shuttle flights is terrible. Both the flight itself and the customer handling. If I ever see the option "operated by endeavor air" I am avoiding at all costs."
Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."
Cons: "No communication between different parts of the airport; early arrival, over 2 hours getting through baggage claim; good luck rechecking your bag; almost missed flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover. Workers on the ground don't care, or either don't know what's next on the transit through the airport."
Pros: "Some of the ground staff was trying to be helpful."
Cons: "That we had to sleep like homeless people on the floor of JFK airport as the airline was not able to provide for a crew and therefore cancelled the flight. The airline cancelled the flight at 1.30 in the morning so no one was able to get a stay in a hotel not did the airline take any action towards helping the stranded passengers. We were given blankets and pillows. The best thing was the ground staff getting rude after all passengers complaining. They were basically saying we should get stuffed since we were booked for a flight next day same day. This is shameful! Needless to say that I will not fly this airline again!"
Pros: "They did eventually put out some small snacks and drinks (water and regular coke)."
Cons: "Small regional plane that was over 3 hours late in departing NY because of weather issues much earlier in the day. Delta did not permit any re-bookings to other delayed flights that were leaving in the intervening period, even though there were empty seats. Very frustrating."
Pros: "Plane was very clean and flight attendants were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Delta's domestic terminal at JFK is far too crowded, even at 8AM."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Cons: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The WORST experience of my life. My flight was delayed 12 hours overnight due to "weather" and since it was reportedly because of uncontrollable weather delta didn't have to do anything for me so I slept in the JFK airport overnight, they wouldn't even give a $59 pass to their sky miles club for the afternoon. It felt like an easy excuse so they wouldn't have to do anything since there were other airlines still flying out of JFK and to go CLE before my rescheduled flight which makes me believe it wasn't all weather. Since the flight was delayed 12 hours instead of being cancelled they wouldn't let me switch to a different airline either. Then, in the morning when it was rescheduled to it was again delayed because they first couldn't find a captain and then couldn't find a fort mate. We finally took off and arrived in Cleveland only to wait another 30 minutes for a gate and a ground crew that they couldn't find. I will never fly delta again."
Pros: "Crew was great. The video game quiz re knowledge of cities worldwide was entertaining and educational"
Cons: "AWFUL CREW. NEVER FLY. NOT CLEAN. NOT NICE."
Pros: "Another fantastic trip with Turkish Airlines. Everything from their membership in Star Alliance, to their awesome customer service, to their fantastic tasting food."
Pros: "Food was great! Crew was excellent and I loved entertainment choices!"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "One piece of our luggage did not arrive on time."
Pros: "That was extremely nice of the company that we had that little package with toothpaste, toothbrush, pillow, slippers etc. Very happy about that."
Cons: "I wish I could have access to wifi on the plane, to tell my family how I was doing."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Plane well maintained"
Cons: "Delay, poor boarding"
Pros: "Just needed a chance to rest during this long trip and that was possible. Slept well, had a nice meal and arrived ready to go. First trip on Turkish Airlines but will absolutely be back. Crew was great!"
Cons: "I was not notified, until I was already at JFK, about a 3hr50min delay in departure from JFK due to mechanical that happened in Istanbul many many hours before. Then the connecting flight at 11:15am IST/TLV was fully booked and I was booked only at 13:30 IST/TLV and therefore arrived more than 7 hours after my original schedule - due to a mechanical. According to IATA and international rules I am now due a full refund on my flight cost and will start proceedings against Turkish Airlines for this money. It was a nightmare for all the hours waiting. We also had to deplane in IST from the JFK flight on steps rather than into a gate!! Same with the TLV/IST flight. Terrible."
Pros: "Excellent service. Very tasty food."
Cons: "Too many voice announcements, interfering with the entertainments system."
Pros: "Food and service in business class were splendid."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing!"
Pros: "I was impressed by how Turkish Air treated me when I missed my connecting flight in Istanbul It was confusing to say the least but once I got to the right location they could not have been any friendlier, kinder, or gracious My hats off to Turkish Air THANK YOU"
Cons: "It was a tight space and they kept giving me things (pillow,blanket, slippers and socks, and headphones) that I didn’t need or have room for I appreciate the thought Return trip I’ll be more aware and decline what I don’t need"
Pros: "The food, comfort and wine on Turkish Airlines was wonderful."
Cons: "Turkish Airline’s needs to improve their online experience. Please just pay someone to fix it - you don’t have the city of Los Angeles as a option for home address. In case TA’s web developers are reading this, Los Angeles is the city with LAX in it. I guess you don’t have to know every city, but maybe download a complete list of cities and use that? There are lots of open source options and I can help you, if it gets confusing. Or, alternatively, allow users to type their city with a keyboard. Scrolling through every city in the state of California is not easier than typing Los Angeles. Especially when arriving at Los Gatos and thinking “wait... did I miss it?” That’s not the only thing wrong with your website, but start here. Look Turkish airlines is wonderful, I’m just saying that it was hell actually buying a ticket and signing up for your rewards program."
Pros: "Service and bag policy"
Cons: "The house food"
Cons: "The seat are not comfortable for a long flight, I felt I was on a city bus it's very cramped and tight and I'm a medium size person, totally not recommended for heavy people"
Pros: "their services in the plain and they are very discipline as well"
Cons: "they don't do well in their transit point they should employ more people who speaks English to direct passengers in the airport. English is international language so they should train some people to direct passengers who comes there everyday"
Pros: "The landing"
Cons: "The crew nasty stwarts"
Pros: "Some of the crew members were sweet, and helpful. I liked that the bathroom had soap and lotion as well."
Cons: "The security was rude when we were getting into our gate. They humiliated a man because he didn't understand their accent. There was a group of young employees and they came off as very immature. There was a crying baby next to me for the majority of the 13 hours. They ran out of food, and I had no choice but to eat the pasta option even though I do not eat pasta in my normal life. My knees hurt from not having space to stretch out for such a long flight. It was freezing cold and they did not have extra blankets. It felt like my section kept getting skipped over for everything (food, liquids, general checking in to make sure people were okay). We boarded late, and left late. When I arrived the luggage took VERY long - almost an hour - to come out."
Cons: "seats a bit tight"
Pros: "Service was excellent Food was delicious..."
Cons: "Everything was perfect..."
Pros: "Best food ever on plane"
Cons: "The flight was delayed leaving NY"
Pros: "My flight was delayed by an hour and I missed my flight scheduled to go Mykonos"
Pros: "Crew member prepared simple pasta"
Cons: "Took real long before the meal was served and this was hard as the passenger was diabetic."
Pros: "the staff was so polite and helpful thank you"
Pros: "The food was impeccable- would compete favorably against Etihad, Singapore, Cathay or Emirates Courteous crew who would be the very best with some more training in making customers feel special. Excellent business cabin"
Cons: "Slightly edgy crew"
Cons: "The plane was 2 half hours late departing from JFK to Istanbul and the customer service in Turkish Airline in the beginning did not give me a good service I believe this will be the first time and the last time"
Cons: "seat 53 B is not a seat for human beings on a plane. this is the last seat on the plane. next to food area and bathroom. seat back does not go all the way back. it is not built for 10 hours flight."
Cons: "More than 90 min delay in the flight from NYC to Istanbul. Caused us to get late to the next flight. The replacement we got was after more than 6 waiting hours although earlier flights took off to the same destinatiob."
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "Great flight overall. Comfortable, nice amenities. Staff was polite and helpful."
Cons: "Did not like the carry on being based on weight instead of size. Also did not like that there was not a self check in kiosk."
Cons: "From JFK airport Turkish airlines was late almost 2 hours and when we came to Turkish our flight to Tbilisi left :("
Cons: "My incoming Turkish Airlines flight arrived late due to weather conditions in Istanbul. The handling of passengers who had missed connecting flights was poor. Very few staff new how to manage the situation, which resulted in long delays, very frustrated passengers and an overall very negative experience. I would avoid flying with Turkish Airlines if I could."
Pros: "I am a frequent Turkish Airways travel and have always enjoyed my experiences with Turkish Airways."
Cons: "My seat was not functioning so I was not able to recline to more comfortably sleep during the flight. The flight was an overnight flight from NYC-JFK to Istanbul, i.e. so a VERY long flight! A flight attendent was not able to get the seat to recline either and said she'd come back to help with another seat or some other solution, but never returned. This made the flight less comfortable and a bit disappointing as my typically experience with Turkish Airways is excellent!!"
Pros: "The service I received on Turkish Airlines was excellent. I live in rural Rwanda and it was really nice to actually sit back, relax, and not worry about getting to where I was going. The staff was courteous and friendly and even let me keep my can of tomato juice. These may seem like small things to you but it made me feel at home for the first time in over a year and I want you guys to know I truly appreciated it. In addition to that, the flight was actually affordable and I was able to make it to New York to surprise my mom for her 60th birthday. Job well done! Thanks again and best of luck! Sincerely, Emily Hardy"
Pros: "The crew on the flight were very nice"
Cons: "As our first flight got delayed, me and 28 other pallengers flying to israel told the airline agents that we would miss our connection flightfrom turkey to israel. The supervisor assured us that we have nothing to worry about, as the second plane would wait as we are many passengers.however when we landed in turkey the connection flight had already left without us. When trying to speak to turkish airline representatives about getting a new flight, they were super UNhelpful, we waited in very long lines and were required so go to a few different parts of the airport to get a new ticket, a process that was not friendly at all and very frustrating. After about 2 hours of waiting on lines, i got a flight that required me to wait 7 hours in the airport and measley voucher for a very small fast food meal. When i asked to be admitted to the lounge (as i waited 7 hours in the airport due to the airlines mistake), they did not agree to grant me access. When i asked to at least get the wifi code from the lounge so i can tell my familly that i am stuck on turkey, this was also rejected. While waiting in the airport, i spoke to many other people on other flights who had been stuck in the airport under very simillar circumstances, some even worse than mine. I also have many friends who have experiences simillar experiences with turkish airlines. If you are looking for a reliable flight, that will get you to your destination on time and will help you out when a problem occurs, Turkish airlines is deffinetelly NOT the flight for you. I personally will never fly with them again after the way i was treated."
Pros: "There's nothing to like when the Federal Aviation administration bans direct flights from US to Istanbul, Turkey"
Cons: "I hate that KAYAK sells me this package and after collecting their commission the only customer support is to direct me to subcontractors which in turn direct me to the airline which in turn NEVER PICKS THEIR F*CKING PHONES UP!!! BAD BAD BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE #NEVEREVERKAYAK"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled. There was terrible communication from the Turkish airlines staff and a complete inability to handle the situation. The entire flight was stuck in the airport for while without any information. The customer service hotline was unable to help anyone because there was a miss communication from the staff in the airport and our flight hadn't been canceled in their system yet. It's was my worst flight experience to date"
Pros: "Wifi when I get to turkey, without needing a fan sim"
Pros: "They didn't want to go to work today. And it's your fault. So they will punish you."
Pros: "They fed you well, great entertainment for 11 hrs (didn't feel like it at all)."
Pros: "Always on time....no delays."
Pros: "Connecting flight was not waiting from Instabul to Athens since the airplane from JFK left with a 1h 20min delay ."
Pros: "Turkish airlines never gave me notice or explanation. At least Kayak gave me notice and i appreciate."
Pros: "I really enjoyed this flight. The seats were comfortable and clean. They passed out headphones and travel kits, including sleeping masks, earplugs, and toothbrushes. Each seat had its own screen with 200 movies and probably just as many albums. They started the flight off with warm towels, then Turkish delight, before having dinner, a middle set of drinks, and then breakfast. I felt like I was almost in business. Plus the crew were very friendly and accommodating. The boarding was smooth though a bit delayed but that was probably more dependent on the airport than the airline."
Cons: "Honestly nothing. Great food, great service, and great crew. Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Served us a meal and snack, which is much appreciated. Both were quite good for airplane food. Smooth flight. Excellent entertainment. There were actually QUALITY movies to watch, which made the time go by fast."
Cons: "It seemed difficult to get the attention of a stewardess for another drink. I guess I could have hit the button calling for someone, but I always feel like too much of a diva by doing that."
