Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew was very nice and responsive."
Cons: "The flight was so hot. No personal air controls. Economy was horribly small."

Pros: "Food was great and abundant. Frequent service"
Cons: "Seats are too tight for such a long flight"

Pros: "Lost the luggage"

Pros: "Good food and beverage options. Many movie and television selections."
Cons: "The seats were too close especially when reclined. The lady next to me got into an argument 3 times with the man behind her and no one assisted the situation. The second security check needs a better signifier that it was done. It almost made me and another man miss our flight. Miserable attendants"

Pros: "SwilssAir is our new favorite airline to Switzerland and other points in Europe. The crews were pleasant and efficient. All flights were right on time. The food was very good, and the best overall we have experienced in economy. The individual video screens provided a nice selection of movies, tv, games, etc. Finally, transferring in Zurich is MUCH better than the zoo that his Heathrow!"

Cons: "Boarding took way too long. Plane left almost 30 minutes after scheduled time."

Pros: "I had a wonderful experience the whole way through."
Cons: "The TV froze and stopped working for me. Thankfully it was the last thirty minutes of my flight. Mine was the only that appeared to be broken."

Cons: "Cabin temperature was a little hot"

Pros: "Crew was great. This flight is what I would expect from Swiss."

Pros: "The flight attendants qere very nice and friendly. Spoke great English. They came by often with drinks and snacks. All the food was actually good! The seats were fairly comfy and there was actually room! Even when the person in front of me leaned back, my legs still didn't touch the back of the seat (I'm 5-10 with long legs). Very happy with swiss!"

Pros: "Good space above seats"
Cons: "Seats way too tight. But the worst thing was the two passageners in the row we shared. They were laying on each other and it was inappropriate for the entire flight. He was rubbing her breast and I said something. He seemed to stop. Lots of rubbing and huggin and the man had his legs stretched out man spread style"

Pros: "I thought Swiss did a nice job. The people were kind and the service was excellent. The meals were great. I never wanted for anything. The entertainment was also very nice."

Pros: "A swiss machine..."
Cons: "the smell someone left in the bathroom before me."

Cons: "I would have like an announcement to let me know what times food will be served. I woke up just as the crew had passed my row for breakfast and then couldn't get the attention of the lady to serve me breakfast. A vegan option for the menu would be excellent. The leg room on the plane was also very reduced for an 11 hour flight. I wish I would have been offered to pay an additional amount and upgrade to the business class. This option was never offered to me at check-in."

Cons: "Was asked to give up my aisle seat (D 40) seat om a 13 hour flight for a less comfortable one (F). Put on the spot to give up my seat for a couple with a 6 month old infant due to the fact that the attachable bassinet had to be in front of the D seat. Neither the parent or myself felt very good about my displacement."

Pros: "Like to have the gluten free option for food. I know i chose it when i got the ticket but i did not get it."

Cons: "the passport check process in Zurich was awful!"

Pros: "Good people."
Cons: "Bad food."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "All the meal and snacks were excellent! The crew was friendly."
Cons: "It was too warm during flight, not enough air flow. The lights are too bright and spread light to passengers during "sleep" time. The remote controls for the TV's need to be cleaned. Passengers need to be reminded to not open windows during "sleep" times"

Pros: "Great food and drink service."
Cons: "Entertainment system is outdated relative to other airlines. A bit disappointing."

Pros: "I liked the fact that I got to Los Angeles safely"
Cons: "The bathrooms were tiny, seemed to be in a bad shape and one of them was straight disgusting. The cabin was crowded and there was not much room to stretch. There seemed to be something wrong with the main dish (special order) and I started to feel ill soon after eating from it. It took a few days to get better. The headset didn't work for most of the trip, even after several attempts by the flight attendant to re-set it."

Pros: "Kind flight attendants who were attentive and friendly"
Cons: "Seats are hard and very small. No chargers and having the remote control cut into the armrest was uncomfortable and awkward. I kept accidentally hitting the stewardess button with my elbow when I would try to use said armrest."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that Swiss air didn't put me on a stand bye flight after I missed my Barcelona to Zurich flight because I was at the wrong gate was no professional of Swiss airlines! They gave me no help at the airport and I was forced to pay $1,200 for a new flight home."

Cons: "Seats were not comfortable. Will fly a different airline next time."

Pros: "Very friendly thank you!"
Cons: "The wifi login experience could be improved. I purchased wifi as a guest when I had an account and had to spend extra time chatting with an agent to get it resolved. They were very helpful but having the option to login to my account at the start would be ideal!"

Pros: "I would like to have ore of a grace period to check baggage."

Pros: "Felt safe and sanitary"

Pros: "Delayed"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and took good care of the passengers"

Cons: "Rude crew. Dirty plane."

Cons: "Fix it"

Pros: "Having three seats."
Cons: "I had three seats to myself! After getting elbowed all the way from Amsterdam to Minneapolis, I was tired and I slept three good hours."

Pros: "That it got me home"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Look, if your kid is so young that he can’t get in a plane without screaming for four hours, you shouldn’t bring him on a plane and subject 200 people to that. It’s rude and selfish."

Pros: "Great selection of movies"

Pros: "Food was plenty."
Cons: "Long security lines at Logan. No free WiFi"

Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Got in early"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable ... enough. Boarding process, once underway allowed me to get overhead bin and stash my other luggage in the seat below me. Flight wasn't overly booked (85-95%) so there appeared to be room for others to stretch out. Now about that crying kid..."
Cons: "Ugh. Weather delays. The flight was scheduled to board about 7P but it arrived late and they had to not only unload the self-loading cargo, but clean up afterwards. Would be nice to get a better estimate as to how long it would take to board so that I could hang out in the lounge. In addition, departure from JFK was delayed as well, either we missed the IFR window or got stuck behind some traffic and I fell asleep on the plane only to wake up what seemed an hour later just getting ready to hit V1. No upgrade."

Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"

Pros: "We were not happy with our flight my flight got cancelled 3 times I miss work they need to reimburse us and also reimburses the hotel cuz we had to stay at a hotel because they cancelled our flight three times and then our flight that we went out on Monday was late because of a flight attendant arriving late to the hotel to the airport"

Pros: "I didn't get a chance to get the gentleman's name at the gate, but he was able to get me on the earlier flight (since I had NO luggage and only 1 carry on that fit under my seat) and didn't charge me the stupid fee for filling a seat that was empty when I was giving up a seat on a later flight that would accommodate those who missed this earlier flight. Nice to see kindness in an industry that seizes fees on every opportunity."

Pros: "The temp"
Cons: "It was too hot."

Pros: "Maintained high standards of service despite massive delay."
Cons: "Boarding and departure was messy because of the delay"

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."

Pros: "The entertainment options and noticing the little touches that Delta is making to improve the brand and experience."
Cons: "Seems like there are legacy "attitude" issues with the crew. I sat on the aisle yesterday, and SEVERAL times I was bumped, quite rudely, by passing crew. In one instance, as they passed to pick up trash, they took two of my three items. They started walking on, and I tapped them as they passed to pick up the third. She brusquely turned and said: don't touch me to get my attention. No please; quite rude, and unnecessary."

Pros: "The boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Crew lacked any customer centricity, service was poor"

Cons: "Boarding process was horrible, it was first class, priority, zone 1 and then all other zone. There was no order. Flight was delayed. Had a 3 hour delay on the tarmac!"

Cons: "They cancelled my flight"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worst ever airline in the world charged me for Cary on bag $430 for weight 8.7kg from Oslo Norway to adiss ababa Ethiopia I recommend no one has to fly with Turkish airline poor customer service"

Pros: "The service was excellent. They are very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Maybe refresh the plan in the near future. Other then that it was very enjoyable trip."

Cons: "Vegetarian meals can be better"

Cons: "same as before on luggage as it was directly sent to SFO The security check again was painful as it was just a transfer and we only had 1 hr in between, didnt think there are additional security check again for transfers"

Cons: "Not stealing expensive gifts from my suitcases. That was very disappointing"

Cons: "Flight was delayed - missed connection in Istanbul"

Cons: "On time"

Pros: "Great good entertainment n crew provided warm and courteous service"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process n the seats are not the best- not bad just not as good as everything else."

Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "Lack of drinks offerdd"

Pros: "Everything was more than perfect. Thanks Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "On board internet must be faster."

Cons: "Seating too tight/ crew staff members at Istanbul airport"

Cons: "The Bus carried all passengers to the plane . There was No help or assistance available for Handicapped passengers We had to climb the stairs. The person in front of me had Only one leg to stand on and was using crutches to climb the stairs This was like a survival of the fittest test and a horrible Experience. The Airline should provide assistance at the Boarding stairs."

Cons: "No, disappointments:)"

Cons: "See sbove"

Cons: "The Istanbul airport is very large and there are many people. The signage is generally pretty good, but it was confusing getting off the airplane from Berlin and seeing a sign saying something like " foreigners." I waited in that very long line for at least 30 minutes which ate up most of my layover time. Only to find out that it was for people with visas coming into Turley. I was directed to another, poorly marked, line for people transferring planes."

Cons: "Inability to get a full can of soda and beverages with ice, Wild kids who ran amuck in the cabins, insonsistent ventilation it was hot one minte freezing the next."

Pros: "Delicious food, amenities kit with socks, slippers, earplugs, toothpaste and more, fantastic entertainment system, power plugs and USB plugs at every seat."
Cons: "The laptop on board ban is a mess. As we were flying to the US, we had to go through literally 4 security checks one after the other. Then, all of our electronics (laptop, camera, even headphones) other than our phones had to be taken. As everyone had to go through it , this delayed our flight by 1 hour. When we landed, we waited literally 1.5h before they started handing out our electronics. All in all, it took me 4 hours to leave the airport."

Cons: "Policy"

Cons: "Boarding took way too long - I waited in my seat with no air conditioner sweating so much."

Pros: "As with the departure, everything was smooth for those who had no carry-on laptop"
Cons: "The new carry-on laptop caused a delay of about 1 hr before departure and arrival an hour late, then claiming the laptop was almost a nightmare with long queue after picking up the luggages, one has to also claim their laptops in a make shift station In the baggage claims area. My suggestion is to put the computer laptops in alphabetic order by last name/surname, with the claim ticket,for easier access when picking up. As for departure, probably at check in to inform them that if you have a laptop carry-on so that can be taken care of right away as not to delay departure when they take it at the departing gate. This should be done at check in if in Turkey, or as a transferring traveler, to inform the traveler to take care of that as soon as arrived to transferring destination and for the traveler not to wait until boarding time at the boarding gate."

Pros: "Price, service."
Cons: "Can not take a laptop or Kindle on board (no fault of Turkish Airlines, but still an option available when flying from other places to the US)."

Cons: "We had to wait about one hour after sitting."

Pros: "Courteous"
Cons: "Nice people"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Turkish airlines is the worst of the worst."

Cons: "It didn't happen and I wasn't notified"

Pros: "The meals was good"

Pros: "I liked the accurate time for departure and landing, the meals was ausom and delicious and the plane was new and comfotable."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "they lost my luggage by my first stop"

Pros: "The whole experience was great. After an excellent meal which included drinks before and an excellent wine selection the flt attendants came through and made up a bed for you. This included a cover for the seat, a blanket and a big pillow. As opposed to United where you have to stick your feet in a little cubby the Turkish plane has just an open bench which opens to provide storage and gives ample foot room. I have never slept so much on a flt. Also he bathrooms are much more spacious than others."
Cons: "Really nothing."

Cons: "They cancelled my flight days before leaving the country or origin, leaving me incredibly inconvenienced."

Pros: "Great service. On time. Friendly personnel."

Pros: "The steward was very nice. He let me store my special salad and pudding."

Cons: "gerat flight,no complaints."

Pros: "THENK YOU!"

Pros: "Lots do watch/do on the console. Smooth flight. Responsive staff when available."
Cons: "Perhaps because of Istanbul security measures, but all water removed before boarding plane, with no chance to get more. Stewards couldn't give out bottles of water, only those little cups from time to time. They could bring more of those little cups when you called for them, but not during turbulence. So having no access to water was not great (or planned out on their part). Also, no random sweeps of the aisle by the stewardess from time to time, to check on comfort. My seat kept being pushed by passenger behind me. Flight into Istanbul two weeks prior was great all around. This knee was filled with too many negative moments."

Pros: "All"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Overall not a good experience"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The absolute worst airline we have ever flown with. Will never fly with them again."

Cons: "The plane was very cold"

Pros: "flights on time.."
Cons: "Our pre-ordered meals were not served"

Pros: "Great crew service and food. Great entertainment features."
Cons: "Wish services in Istanbul airport was better. Had to take a bus to the terminal and transfer directions and gate services was confusing and not very good. But this is not the airlines fault."

Cons: "Connection was too long to Dubai"

Pros: "It was to hot on the plane , I told them 3 times and still nothing chaged .... I don't think I fill fly with them on the future."

Pros: "Great selection of movies. Really got a kick out of the Batman vs. Superman stuff! :)"
Cons: "I was a bit tight in my seat, and when I went towards the back of the plane, I saw a number of people had a whole row to themselves. It would have been nice if the spacing was better so more of us could be less cramped."

Cons: "Three hours departure delay from Munich to SFO"

Cons: "Only reason I chose Lufthansa was that I was informed that 23kg of checked in luggage was included. It was NOT. I don't care whose fault it is. Lufthansa still says that this is included on their website. I demand reimbursement."

Cons: "The arm rests on either side of my seat where closed so I had limited mobility in my seat (by closed I mean they didn’t move and had no open space between where your arm sits and the top of the chair)"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Luggage space, comfortable seat.. huge plane"
Cons: "Ice cream was not good."

Pros: "Glad that i was able to secure a seat in the emergency exit row (row 70)"
Cons: "Wow, I am not a heavy woman, I wear a size large but I am not in the least obese, just tall and not skinny. The seat width was ridiculously tight! I have NEVER experienced such discomfort in a Emergency Row seat!"

Cons: "Sittinf in the middle"

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "What’s not to love?"

Pros: "Lots of legroom"
Cons: "As with most long-distance flights, the bathrooms got somewhat dirty though I did notice flight attendants on two occasions entering to clean them"

Cons: "Didn't like the fruit dish or the liverwurst type meat."

Pros: "We were treated very well by all staff. Very nice crew"

Pros: "The seating configuration was ideal (2-3-2)"

Cons: "First time took Lufthansa airlines and it was my one of the worst experience. Hospitality is respected when customer is helped when they are in trouble not when they is happily boarded. I have to travel from Milan to San Francisco and I missed flight of my one leg ( milan to frankfurt) of journeyand I went for help and non of the Lufthansa staff at Milan airport helped me. Although my connecting flight was after 12hr they just gave me some random number which to call. I have never experience this in my 8yr of international travel."

Pros: "Lufthansa and SAS. A great combination."
Cons: "Nothing to not like."

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "staff"
Cons: "major delay, poor communication andaccommodation considering delay"

Pros: "See above. The same applies."
Cons: "See above. The same applies."

Cons: "Leg space"

Pros: "All worked as expected"
Cons: "No remarks to make"

Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Crew was rude"

Pros: "Smooth ride. Almost made up some flight time......"
Cons: "No entertainment, Two hour delay......almost missed our connecting flight."

Pros: "Quick loading and departure."
Cons: "The gate changing 3 times."

Pros: "Lufthansa flights are by far the best way to fly transatlantic!!"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Kosher food ordered was not satisfactory: meat too dry and compressed. I couldn't eat that. Overall Kosher meal was poor quality. Disappointing."

Pros: "The food was pretty good. Normally I can't eat airplane food but it was actually good."
Cons: "The seat didn't go back at all"

Pros: "Same as above but even better."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "It was on time :)"
Cons: "I booked wheelchair at Oslo airport, but my father did not get it at Frankfurt."

Pros: "the gate crew didn't care if there was chaos. no interaction with waiting passengers beyond those that queued up with direct questions. i'd liken the experience to herding cattle. customer service skills haven't been taught to these folks yet. if i were basing my lufthansa experience on this alone, i'd go out of my way to fly another airline next time. on the other hand, the people staffing the flight were extremely kind, professional, pleasant, personable. a much improved experience. so much so that i mentioned it to a few people once i got home. this crew has received more training on how to provide excellent service than the gate folks in frankfurt."
Cons: "gate crew's attitude. it feels as though they are disdainful of the traveller. customer service matters. manage the boarding process. be nice about it."

Pros: "Staff was very attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Seating very cramped for a tall person. Tight squeeze!"

Cons: "That my seat was broken the whole time. I have a spinal injure and need to rotate positions while sitting. My seat was broken and my back hurt badly."

Pros: "Excellent, helpful steward."

Pros: "Overall it was a great experience."

Pros: "keep going"

Cons: "the hot meals were aweful"

Cons: "11 hours of crying babies was too much. The practice of placing 4 cribs together on the bulkhead encouraged one baby to set the others off screaming. The toddler siblings then started fussing, the parents were then jumping up and down, jostling the other passengers, it was a nightmare! Hated every minute of it."

Cons: "Too cold"

Pros: "The staff on my flight were the most friendly crew I have ever had on a flight. They were enjoyable to interact with and went out of their way to help guests. I also appreciate that they wake you up if you are asleep while meals are being passed out; I have missed meals on planes before which is not a great experience on a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "The only negative aspect about the flight were that the seats were a little uncomfortable. There weren't any foot pedals to lift your legs and the seats were extremely close together which was uncomfortable on such a long flight."

Pros: "Chairs were uncomfortable, mainly due to the front passenger was always in reclined mode, and the passenger behind me wouldn't let me recline... He would literally push my chair up, but that's probably because his chair can not recline!"
Cons: "We needed to place special request on vegetarian meal, couldn't do it at booking or at checkin, was told to let crew know, they said it's too late. They brought us an "unclaimed" vegetarian meal, but it wasn't, it was Asian halal meal with lamb! After I let crew member know wmy husband was served meat instead, she denied it and said "its not possible" as the wrapper says "vegetarian". I informed her it actually said "Asian halal", she the proceeded to say, well, "i am sorry if it's wrong, but I gave you vegetarian". That said crew member collected my husband's plates while I was in the bathroom and came back later with a "vegan" plate that they now have available."

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Boarding was delayed by 30 minutes but they did not inform us of the delay so everyone stood in line the entire time."

Pros: "Wonderful overall"

Cons: "seat did not recline at all,"

Cons: "Delated and boarding was a mess"

Pros: "crew, cleanliness"
Cons: "very little legroom, very uncomfortable for travellers who cannot afford business class"

Cons: "Big Screen at front of cabin when I am 2 rows behind kept me awake Boarding was a mess, not really enoughpreboarding space to hold everyone. Organizers were rude and signs were confusing."

Pros: "Lufthansa is one of few airlines in Europe with pure class and excellent service. Even in economy!"

Cons: "Too hot and stuffy. No air."

Cons: "It would have been nice to know if each meal contained cheese, as oposed to just general "chicken and rice" and "noodles with marinara and cheese" It turned ut the rice was in a cheese sauce, and i could not eat it, and could also not eat the alternate option. Please think about giving out a detailed list of ingredients for the in flight meals so we can make more informed choices when we have food restrictions!"

Cons: "I did not like the surprise of having to pay for a seat reservation, once I had purchased my tickets. This was costly and certainly unexpected."

Pros: "Yes, Very good"

Cons: "Free wifi"

Cons: "The airline lost my suitcase and deliver it only 72 hours later... They refused to give me proper compensation for items that were broken..."

Pros: "Pumpkin soup instead of a heavy entree was welcome and tasty. Breakfast yogurt portion was generous, the granola less so. Accompaniments were good. Butter was not ice cold, thank goodness."
Cons: "Inbelievably chaotic boarding process for Kili to Dar leg. No boarding lanes so had to fight through the crowd. Was able to observe cleaning process at Dar stop, which was cursory and am sure there was no cleaning of seats of those who boarded at Kili."

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."

Pros: "Good amount of space on the plane, lots of movies to watch, good food and drink."

Pros: "Seats were super comfortable, bigger than most planes with extra leg room. Food was excellent and fresh, amazing Dutch cheese sampler was divine. No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."

Pros: "Crew was great, very responsive and hospitable!"
Cons: "more lunch choices, especially choices without dairy products."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. They adjusted the seating arrangements so there was an empty seat in every row to give passengers more space. Very thoughtful and much appreciated. They served delicious meals, snacks, and water. They provided headphones, blankets and pillows. They took very good care of us."

Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "seat reservation. having to pay for luggage...."

Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."

Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."

Pros: "Overall KLM experience is good"
Cons: "Food quality was mediocre for a business class flight."

Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"

Cons: "Inflight was better than I expected. But needs upgrading air crafts."

Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"

Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"

Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"

Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."

Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."

Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."

Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."

Pros: "Arrived early!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed disorganized."

Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled."

Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."

Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."

Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight."

Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."

Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"

Pros: "Friendly attendants. Decent food, and frequent snacks and beverages."
Cons: "No charging ports for electronic devices."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"

Pros: "Good information and helpfil boarding."
Cons: "Has to wait in confined area fir nearly 2 hrs before boarding. No restroom or refreshments within that area."

Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."

Pros: "787 is a great airplane. The 3-3-3 seat configuration leaves enough seat width to be just comfortable in coach."

Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"

Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"

Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."

Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"

Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."

Pros: "Smooth boarding. Good food. Decent leg room at my seat. Good crew. Flight was on time. Good magazine on the flight for entertainment."
Cons: "They didn't give any napkins out with the food which was weird."

Pros: "Newer plane. Dimming windows, upgraded bathroom. Flight crew very pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't announced. Limited in flight movie selection. Food was average. Same dessert for both meals served."

Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."

Pros: "Leg room. Smiles of the cabin crew."
Cons: "Not enough selection of Electronic Dance Music. Lol!"

Pros: "- entertainment systen was OK (movies), but has no current news - food was good - windows can be darkened progressively"
Cons: "- Schiphol airport (AMS) is small, crowded, noisy; no water fountains; toilets are dirty and insufficient in number; SFO is much better - KLM boarding process was chaotic (not by group or row number), boarding/security personnel (4 old guys) didn't have a clue - 787 is noisy, chairs are uncomfortable (my back still hurts) and very close together, they also recline way too much - food trays not collected promptly - noisy babies on all flights - clearly not enough cabin crew for a full flight - no or wrong info by pilots on timing (crew are always lying anyway) - gate is all around the back at SFO (long taxi to get there) - they inserted people in wheelchairs during deboarding thus holding everybody up."

Pros: "The price was nice."
Cons: "Plane looked unkept on exterior. Crew was nice but lazy."
