Pros: "They flew full speed to catch up with the delays."
Cons: "Departure was scheduled with one hour delay. When everyone was boarded they mentioned a leaking toilet. It took them 1,5 hours to disable the toilet. In the mean time, no drinks, no snacks, nothing. So we should depart at 18:00 but it became 19:30. Our first drinks and meal was no earlier then 21:00. The crew should have anticipated better that the technical problem would at least take one hour and give everyone a drink at least."
Cons: "Our flight from Nairobi to Lusaka was cancelled for some reason and we did not find out until we happened to log into the website to double check our itinerary. They automatically rescheduled the flight only giving us 25 minutes to reach our next flight...impossible. so, after calling, we were re-booked again and forced into a 13 hour layover in Amsterdam. Our original flight plan had 4 hours. so, because we are a family of 7 with a baby, we had to buy a hotel room to rest, costing us a lot of extra money we had not planned to spend. We contacted KLM for help with the cost but were rejected. We also lost 5 bags somewhere between Chicago and Lusaka, but after 2 days, we received them."
Pros: "Captain was updating us with the delay status."

Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and because of this I missed my connection flight to Amsterdam"
Cons: "Taking off late caused me stress because I had transferring flight within less than two hours in transit originally. So we arrived later about 50 minutes so I had to manage my situation and find my next gate and be on time. And an other thing that I disliked was that I was allowed to have only one baggage which was very unusual for international flight between two countenances. And the crew was not polite enough so she made fun of my Cary-on. In short, I expected more from KLM which is famous for them being "Royal" but not acting as one of them."
Cons: "One and a half hour delay on a 50 minute flight. Flight was operated by Cityjet on behalf of KLM. Never have I seen such bad customer service: from rude people at the bagage drop off to incompetent hostesses at the boarding gate."
Cons: "Boarding was just a mess - lines and delay Crew is apathetic There is no amenity kit for passengers Food could be better"
Pros: "The crew was very nice i felt safe during the flight the sit had enough space the pilot kept apologzing for 15 minute lale took responsible for somthing he wasnt need to"
Pros: "It was a KLM flight so good"
Cons: "Could not select seats in advance even as a Platinum level Air France / Skyteam card holder as it was purchases as China Southern."
Pros: "Crew polite and efficient"
Cons: "No leg room. The box underneath the seat in front makes it impossible to stretch your legs. The arm rest lifts only to 45 degrees which is useless. No way to gain some lateral space there."
Pros: "on time arrival"
Cons: "the cabin configuration is bad"
Pros: "2-4-2 configuration was ideal, because we had a pair of seats on the side"
Cons: "HIndu vegetarian meal was FISH!! Hindus DO NOT eat fish!!"
Pros: "Cabin crew and staff were very professional, courteous."
Cons: "50 Euro charge for one checked bag, and they placed me on a locked standby list (at initial check-in the were unable to assign me a seat despite staff efforts) for the second leg of my return journey after I had paid extra for checked baggage and reserved my flight well in advance. My impression is that they may be deliberately overbooking flights. I was given a seat assignment at the gate, however I didn't like the uncertainty of not knowing wether or not I would be boarding until the last minute."
Pros: "entertainment options"
Cons: "lack of USB or other power outlet to charge my own devices, poor responsiveness from crew"
Pros: "The interface of shows and movies,"
Cons: "They dont have subtitules in spanish"
Cons: "One of few airlines with seats right next to kitchen Super old plane! No Usb charging possible (or we all couldn't find) I asked for aisle seat as always. They said we give you a window seat but we have blocked the 2 seats next to you so you have 3 seats. I thanked and asked for that aisle seat and they said no again. Then obviously both seats were fully booked and I jammed in the corner. Ridiculous."
Pros: "I was nicely surprised with food , blankets and earphones included in the low cost airline service. Flight yeam was superv . We left with almost 4 hour delay due to florida storms ."
Cons: "The booking process with kayak vayama did not provide the right information to access flight online website so no possibility to check in online or lugagge extra request available ."
Cons: "The airplane is freezing!"
Pros: "Good food and good movies"
Cons: "Two hour flight delay without any explanations. On the trip from Orlando to Miami the crew closed the bathrooms and no one was allowed to use them for the entire flight."

Pros: "The service from the cabin crew was superb! So was flying on the B787."
Cons: "Going through Customs in Sanford was a new experience for me, kind of tricky, but compared to JFK, it was a cakewalk."
Pros: "The Miami to Amsterdam flight was smooth and quiet. This Boeing Dreamliner is pretty nice! The staff is kind and helpful. The meal was pretty tasty. No massive check in lines like I saw for AirEuropa as I headed to security. Poor souls. The comfort economy was alright. Chair reclined enough. It’s not Star or Premium. Plane stayed clean. I search our TuiFly when going to Europe. Maybe I shouldn’t be saying all this because everyone will want them."
Cons: "I will have to say that the cabin was a little warm even for this Florida resident. I wish they would have offered more water rather than say the bar is open. Maybe offer wine for charge with meal. Maybe a booze and water cart. I wish the .nl website was English capable."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival. Good seats and entertainment options."
Cons: "Need to buy hold bags in advance rather than at the airport"
Pros: "- Service on Flight - Comfort"
Pros: "Great on board staff and smoothly run operation- felt very personal although it was a large flight! Economy class was spacious enough for the long overnight flight and overhead cabin space was great! Clean and professional."
Pros: "Staff was good and friendly. They have a new Boeing 787 which is faster then most other aircrafts. Price was cheap I paid from Orlando to Amsterdam about 250$ one way."
Cons: "Absolutely HORRIBLE comfort of the seats, basically you have NO legroom at all, it's ok if you have a short flight like 2-3 hours but when you fly long distance it makes you VERY tired and really uncomfortable, I've never seen anything like that before. They serve food only once and it's not good and very small portion. Overall if you're looking for a cheap flight tui is the answer but I'd rather pay extra 100-300$ and get a bigger airline with more comfortable seats."
Cons: "Had to check in our carry on luggage"
Pros: "I liked nothing about this airline. The customer service was awful."
Cons: "The flight time changed to one hour earlier which left my party and I without a flight home from Amsterdam while we needed to reach Florida. The customer service desk was absolutely awful which provided no help at all. We asked the desk where to check in for the our flight which was apparently already boarding, while the woman told us to go wait in line. After waiting in line for 30 minutes, the check in desk told us that it was too late to check in for the flight. This led us to spend over $1000 on a new flight home. Thank you TUIfly."

Pros: "I loved how accommodating the crew was."
Cons: "Hated that I could barely fit in the seat. Need a way to upgrade to a better seat."
Pros: "The 787 Dreamliner was a fabulous experience in air travel. BIG decision is to pay the extra money for COMFORT class rather than to fly economy. Makes a BIG difference!"
Cons: "Entertainment options (movies) were not of interest; could upgrade the duty free options for purchase. Crew was pleasant yet had to wait a long time to get them to recognize the crew light to address the entertainment issues."
Pros: "i did like the plane was thier..and we did not have to wait.. check in bag was pleasant. the crew was good...i did like the fact the return flight was direct to Sanford, so i could off and drive home..."
Cons: "i did not like the lack of leg room...charging for non alcoholic beverages,the lay over in Miami with the passengers getting on and off was good the fact we were told to stay in our seat was not.. would have been nice to walk around the aircraft... i did not like the returning flight check in. the extra hour added to the boarding timeon my boarding pass. caused an not needed act of hurrying... . and still we had to wait for crew...the marketing confusion of which airline tui or arke fly does not help..."
Pros: "Crew very helpful & friendly"
Cons: "Seating tight, meal not very good"
Pros: "For the price, can't be beat. Very nice plane and pretty comfortable flight"

Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "After the flight time was changed twice in the days prior, we arrived to the airport three hours before the time posted on the website. There was no crew at the counter to provide us with boarding passes. The security team at the airport in Aruba needed to intervene as the ground crew at the gate refused to send someone to the check in counter. After pleading for an hour, they finally sent someone to give us boarding passes so that we could then proceed through security to the gate. The security team from the airport was nice enough to escort us all the way through customs, immigration, and security so that we would not miss our flight."

Cons: "Delayed twice no serious and they don't give you even water"
Pros: "Overall things went well"
Cons: "The worst problem was the horrible wait time to get our luggage at Miami. Actually only the first half came out after an extended time frame, and then we had to wait 15 minutes more for the rest of the luggage. Very poor customer relations, although probably not directly connected to Suriname, but people were not happy about Miami's lack of organization in handling the luggage."
Pros: "This was the 1st time my wife and I have flown Suriname Air. Price wise you cannot beat them. This is the only airline that comes to Aruba from the US that offer a free meal. We will definitely fly with them again to and from Miami."

Pros: "Service and food drinks. Left on time Arrived early."
Cons: "No tvs or movies. More organization at bag check needed"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The customer service was nonexistent. There was no one available at the MIA airport outside of the single schedule flight time. When I called, I spoke to the same lady who was extremely unhelpful. They also cancelled my flight without a refund, eventhough I called them 4 hours beforehand to inform them that I would be missing my flight due to another airline carrier being tardy. Refused to let me board the return flight that I had already paid for. I had to purchase an additional roundtrip ticket to replace the Surinam flight. Will never fly or recommend this airline ever again."
Pros: "Staff is nice"
Cons: "It was hot in the airplane"
Pros: "The price and availability of flights"
Cons: "Was told by the airline that since I missed my flight to my destination (Aruba from Miami) even though it was the fault of another airline (which offered to get me to my destination because of their delay), Surinam Air told me that I would forfeit my return flight (Miami to Aruba) for being a 'no show', even though I called and informed them I would not be on the flight 4 hours prior to my scheduled flight. Will never fly with this airline ever again!"
