Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Luggage handling could be a lot better. Two out of four of my bags were damaged beyond repair"

Cons: "Hate Anadolujet"
Pros: "Overall good experience"
Cons: "Bathrooms were already dirty upon boarding"
Pros: "Food was great. Crew was nice overall."
Cons: "When we arrived they tried to convince us to let our 4 year old fly w a broken tray table. After escalating they wanted to remove us but some other passengers intervened and helped. Entertainment system totally sucks. Movie selection was good but a headache to navigate."
Pros: "The food and service were pretty good. The entertainment was good, and the crew very helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible. We were checked out and processed 7 times! The questions we were asked were so ridiculous that at some point I started laughing. The official wanted to see my itinerary since I left the US, and all if the places I had visited! (That was a month after the start of my trip since I was on my way back from my vacation). The seats are made for people who are 5 feet tall and skinny. The airport was so busy that we had to Wait inside the plain for over an hour because there was (taxiing traffic) and could not get on the take off Lane."
Pros: "Everything ok."
Cons: "Huge delay on the flight + no power for part of the waiting in the field + very bad information in the airport about where to find the gate Overall a terrible flight experience"
Pros: "The friendly people and the ease of flying alone so far away."
Cons: "The seats are to close together and did not recline, also very warm on the plane makes it very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Punctual in terms of reaching destination, all else average."
Cons: "Less leg space, pantry service below expectations."
Pros: "The food was excellent"
Pros: "First meal served was excellent. Entertainment selections are always great on Turkish. Staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. Best bathrooms in the air."
Cons: "Plane was maintained very hot throughout our flight, also pressurization was very high making for uncomfortable flight. We needed a better choice than macaroni and cheese for the second meal."
Pros: "Crew is super nice and helpful. Aircraft is pleasant"
Cons: "Food is okay but the portions are tiny."
Pros: "Easy and quick"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Food, as always on THY, was tasty."
Cons: "Here is a recommendation. When your business class is empty, and by empty I mean nobody was there, use the available seats or some of them to upgrade some of your loyal travelers. Also, when your business class is empty there is no need to draw the curtains, unless you have something to hide. Your personnel was not in the mood to work today."
Pros: "the staff was so polite and helpful thank you"
Pros: "The food was delicious. I loved that there were blankets, pillows, and headphones for everyone and they were not at extra cost. We also received care bags with lip balm, socks, slippers and a night mask as well as a toothbrush and toothpaste. The flight did not seem like 12 hours. Thankfully."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and the food is amazing"
Cons: "After the second hour the temperature inside the aircraft was very warm started to sweat"
Pros: "I landed SAW airport with another operator. Turkish airlines should have simply waited for me as my reservation with them starts in SAW airport. My previous operator sent my luggage to SAW as final destination, which means i have to cross passport control, collect my luggage and start the check-in process; given the time window between the flights, that was simply impossible. TURKISH AIRLINE's ground staff - transit team of SAW airport - Made it happen! I was requested just to wait, then they confirmed transferring the luggage and gave me respective tags! landed CDG - Paris to find my bag safe and sound :)"
Pros: "Despite the computer regulations the THY handled it smoothly in Istanbul. In Atlanta we had to wait at least half an hour to get them back. Service was good, till the end of the flight restrooms were clean. Besides they offer 2-luggage policy. I try to use them as much as I can. Thanks THY"
Pros: "Nice to have food on such a short flight."
Cons: "No USB charging outlet."
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane."
Cons: "The international transfer line in Istanbul was an absolute nightmare. I had to jump to the front of the line or I would have missed my connection despite having a 90 minute window of time to make it through. It seems this airport lacks the capacity needed to get people through efficiently based on the numbers of travelers using it."
Pros: "The attentiveness of staff."
Cons: "The video screens did not work. Our seats were changed at the last minute without any indication to why."
Cons: "the employees at the check in booth were so rude and unhelpful. I needed a wheelchair because I had a very bad backache, but they refused to help me and they made me wait standing up in line for over 2 hours. It was a very painful experience."
Cons: "The security at the airport is a little too much. Once we landed at Istanbul we went through a security check point which took about 30-40 minutes. I barely made it to my connection flight . Then I went through another security check before boarding the plane. Unnecessary in my opinion"
Pros: "Everything. The crew was very accommodating as well as helpful."
Pros: "The flight attendants were pleasant and very attentive. Great meals."
Cons: "Had trouble with the seat leaning back on one of glights"
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: "Great crew, pleasant fligt"
Pros: "The crew, as usual on Turkish airlines, was wonderful. Excellent service and patience.Warmly recommend Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "good food, offer different drinks, good service and polite, The take off and landing were so smooth."
Cons: "all movies offer subtitles, can't turn off which some people might feel disturbing"
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."
Cons: "Crew not very friendly"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Food. Entertainment. Leg room."
Pros: "Nice new plane, decent food, friendly staff, incredible selection of movies. Appreciated the fact that the cabin wasn't freezing for once."
Cons: "Terrible, slow checkin process. Some people treated the checkin counter as their personal therapist, coffee house, I don't know what.., they held up the line for ages and staff was doing nothing to speed them up and move them along."
Pros: "very comfortable seats, flights on time, and good service/food.. enough empty space to sleep laying down if needed."
Cons: "Baggage handlers poor. One of my bags was dented and the other had a buckle broken."
Pros: "I HAD AN AISLE SEAT AND ALL WAS WELL."
Pros: "At Lisboa airport, I was checked in by Antonio. Most helpful checkin guy I've ever spoken to in my years of traveling. The food is always impressive (for airline food) and they give you a lot to drink. The last time I flew, there was an Autistic passenger throwing a fit and no one seemed to do anything. This time, a person was really upset with his companion on the flight and began screaming. The attendants helped calm him down and fixed the situation quickly. I guess last time they must've just let it happen because of the disability so there's not much they can do in that situation."
Cons: "Not a big ran of the Turkish Airport. Everything is pretty cheap for an airport though if you bring Turkish Lira. They tend to round the price up a bit if you pay in USD or Euro."
Cons: "Boarding need to more organized."
Pros: "Quiet trip"
Pros: "The entertainment options are good as well as free messaging on wifi"
Cons: "The boarding was late, the take off was late (weather), then arriving in rdu was delayed because the bridge was broken. All around, I’ve had better experiences but I’ve had much worse on SW."
Cons: "There should not be a pay wall around the internet in today's day and age"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Gates switched 3 times and all bags had to be checked because of a small aging plane."
Pros: "Crew professionalism."
Pros: "Crew was great!!"
Cons: "Boarding of plane. Should be from Back to front."
Pros: "Crew was great. Paris to RDU flight is very convenient. Fair summer pricing overall for our special itinerary. Beverages, snacks on international flight were great."
Cons: "Specialty food requested - reduced sugar because there is just too much sugar in airline food generally. Pretty awful. Some kind of (I think) pickled cabbage and carrots slaw was inedible. Plain yogurt was awful, needed something! Nuts, just a little bit of dried fruit would help."
Pros: "They didn’t want to help"
Cons: "They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more. Our next flight left without us while we were waiting for a gate to open so we could get off the plane. There were no more flights so we had to fly to an alternate city and rent a car to get home."
Pros: "The crew was some of the best I’ve ever had."
Pros: "Did a good job despite the weather during the flight"
Pros: "Crew was good. Food was good."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for an hour. Legroom in economy was tight."

Pros: "Good service this morning"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Nothing. Every thing was great"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Absolutely no entertainment for a flight that had way more people than my first one. Food options were horrible!"
Pros: "chwcking in was very easy."
Cons: "No in board beverages. On flight from RDU to PHL beverages were served."
Cons: "Having to go through Kayak wasn’t helpful. I wasn’t kept informed of the flight and getting to my flight schedule was difficult. Going through the website was also frustrating and confirming flights was difficult."
Cons: "Food, cramped seating."
Pros: "The plane left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that the food they served made my child sick. But hey, that is a given. Most airplane food sucks. But it shouldn't make a person sick. The flight staff was okay, but not nearly as professional and friendly as the crew flying to Lisbon. Thankfully none of them ran over my foot with the metal cart."
Pros: "The check-in agent was very nice and patient"
Cons: "Our flight kept on getting delays, we were seated separated, a kid was hitting my seat during the whole flight even after skiing the mother to stop her child, not sure what is the solution there but I would suggest that in your announcements in the beginning you could mention a rule of respect to others like in the movies a little subtle regulation about other passengers space respect."
Pros: "Getting off the flight was the best!"
Cons: "The persons who barfed and delayed take off was a not great. Cramped"
Cons: "The fact my flight was delayed three times...First delta said it was technical(mechanical) issues then sis it was the weather then said it was mechanical issues due to the weather. There were no compensation of the inconvenience it cause the customers."
Pros: "The woman who helped us at the desk by the gate was possibly the single most helpful, kind Delta employee I’ve ever met. She wheeled me down the jetway and upgraded our seats. I wish I knew her name. She has very curly dark blonde hair and is petite."
Pros: "My wife’s and my headphone connections would not work."
Pros: "see aqbove"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "The staff was incredible the plane was great. right on time"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "We landed at 2:14 p.m. but did not get our luggage until 3:38 p.m., with "priority" because we were traveling business class. Dozens of bags that were not "priority" preceded ours."
Cons: "The person sitting next to me what is not able to fit in their seat, therefore, he filled his seat and half of my seat. I don't think it's fair that I paid for a full seat and only was able to use half of my seat. I was incredibly uncomfortable the entire flight. I was pressed up against the window and against the stranger passenger that I did not know. By the end of the flight, my shirt and my pants are soaked with sweat, it was not my sweat."
Cons: "The flight was delayed just as we were about to board at 5:30. There was a mechanical problem and we were changed to another plane and another gate, which was supposed to take off at 6:30. It was boarded and ready to go around 7:00. Then....we taxied down the runway only to stop because of a situation on THIS plane (a light that did not go off). It was fixed pretty quickly and meanwhile a rep. from Delta boarded the plane, apologizing for our inconvenience and handed out Jolly Ranchers. REALLY? After that, she and the flight attendants did give us a free drink/headset coupon. That would have been nice but it expires Dec. 2017 and the flight attendant stopped serving drinks about half way down the aisle because the flight was so short. The coupon will be of no use to me. I finally got to Raleigh about 9:30...I booked the flight so I wouldn't have to drive at night.. Sigh....Delta used to be my favorite airline."
Pros: "I would like more detail about traveling companions displayed."
Pros: "Got there before ETA"
Cons: "Concourse was VERY FAR away and trains were not running☹️"
Cons: "I think I caught a stomach bug on one of the 3 legs of this route. More likely on last 2, i.e. Mumbai to RDU, as I fell sick almost 10-12 hrs after my last flight meal."
Pros: "Good Food Nice Flight Attendants"
Pros: "Staff were great.. landed smoothly"
Pros: "Flight attendant had nice attitude."
Cons: "I asked for an aisle seat to provide relief to my right leg. I was given an aisle on my left. This was compounded by sitting next to a man so large that part of my space was taken, and this was Delta Comfort. Had I been given the requested seat, I would not have the sore neck and back I now have from leaning for 2 hours."
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?"
Cons: "The flight crew and staff were all great!"
Pros: "The only positive of this leg is that it was less infuriating than the flight from RDU to Boston"
Cons: "Delta's partnership with Go Jet seriously compromises the legacy carrier's reputation. I am a Delta fan - although flexible enough to use other choices when necessary. I will no longer fly a Go Jet operated leg when other choices are available. For my trips to Boston, that means Jet Blue. Sorry Delta. I'll see you back on a true Delta route."
Cons: "The delay on the runway"
Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."
Pros: "Crew aware of my children's nut allergy and chose not to serve"
Cons: "Coffee horrible"
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "no food while waiting flight cancelled and no vendors open in the airport, stood in line for 4 hours only to be told no flights available, wasn't asked if they could feed me, put me up in a hotel, absolutely no compensation for me not being able to see my son graduate in the Air Force."
Pros: "Everything was decent, good entertainment, nice crew, etc."
Cons: "Nothing was bad."
Pros: "They hand out wine like it's candy"
Cons: "Also, they hand out wine like it's candy - be careful!"
Pros: "In general, everything was ok aboard the plane."
Cons: "The plane was supposed to leave Lisbon at 5:00 a.m. but because of computer problem it left at 5:50, a delay that caused everyone to scramble to get to their connecting flight or even miss it."
Pros: "The crew was cranky at the beginning of the flight."
Cons: "More space!"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "The layover time was too close for FRA. By the time everyone deplaned and was shuttled to the terminal by a bus it was already my boarding time. I had to rush through the passport control feeling nervous The seat pitch of the flight was narrow. I could not use my laptop once the person in front of me reclined."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Absolutely everything."
Cons: "Better entertainment"
Pros: "The seat was good, and the crew was great."
Cons: "Boarding at the gate, and not having to take the bus."
Cons: "Traveled business class and the big perk was nobody in the middle seat. My seat was same size and uncomfortable as economy seats. The seating chart when I chose seats showed only 2 seats on each side. However there were 3 regular seats on each side, just like economy. Not a nice surprise."
Pros: "the flight got me where I needed to go"
Cons: "no boarding zones. boarding was a free for all."
Pros: "Nice to have breakfast on board"
Cons: "Arrival was a little tardy"
Pros: "I like the price of the ticket ( thanks to KAYAK), the service on board was very good, everything on time and of course very convenient connection between Tampa and Frankfurt to fly to the further airports in Europe. Safety, security and service in good price. It is my favorite airline and rout."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Water only and.. I had to asked for it. No snacks or other drinks in my eighteenth hour of flying back from Poland :(("
Cons: "Had a connecting flight, both were with Lufthansa. There was an hour between the two flights. We went straight to security and immediately to the boarding gate but they had closed the gate and would not let us board, even though there was 15 minutes before the flight was due to leave. We were refused a refund and had to move flights to another airport 2 hours away and then had a 5 hour delay. We lost our car reservation as we would arrive too late to collect, we also couldn't check in to our hotel as planned as the hotel only allow check in until 11pm; we would have got there at 1am, so then had to book another hotel for the night. Airport staff at Lufthansa told us they could not help and told us to go away!"
Pros: "the fact that the departure was delayed due to a late connection flight from Pisa."
Cons: "the extra fees for the tickets of our pets because the reservation was not made on line when that was impossible for us to do when we purchased our tickets, nor when we received the notice on the 31st of August because our computer was already packed in the suit case and didn't see it until September 2nd."
Pros: "Service from Milan to Toronto was good"
Cons: "Service from Toronto to RdU not so good"
Pros: "Big airplane:)"
Cons: "I like Lufthansa but but I was on standby this is stressful this I don’t like. Over book I’m sorry but service awesome"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "It was great experience with them"
Pros: "The flight was full. service, food and entreatment was excellent"
Pros: "at RDU after they missed to notify me in time, they were very nice to find me the fastest route on the next day, not miss my whole conference . They give me food vulture also. most of the flying attendances were really kind under my travel, except on the MUC-IAD plane"
Cons: "They didn't notify me in time on a delay and didn't suggested a different route. Therefore I was able to flew just the following day as my connection to the oversea flight was more then an hour delay. It happened with me flying to Budapest, and also flying back from Budapest. Make you better understand, that does it mean for me: in Budapest I missed the first part of my conference, and with the flying back one day later I lost one payed work day. As I have family in Budapest I decided to stay for the night there, and not at Munich, but just rescheduling my flight and providing me a taxi drive was so complicated, that it took two and half extra hrs at the airport, Also Lufhansa put me in my rescheduled back trip the MUC-IAD flight on the 45C seat, what was the worst seat on the plane. Not just that. When they have plenty of empty seat in all of the section, and they wanted to sell it the economy plus seats for more than hundred dollars, I mentioned to the fight attendance my misery ,and how I don't like the seat what I got, and she laughed on me, and I heard her telling her colleagues,this kind of funny way as they were behind me. That's no how they need to treat passenger, Also on flying back they didn't react fast, and they missed to put me on the Frankfurt plane, what could be an alternative route, on the same day, instead they sent me desk to desk."
Pros: "The overall flight"
Cons: "The meal on board"
Cons: "The flight was over 4 hours delayed and we only received a 10 euro voucher. The boarding process was chaotic and stressful."
Pros: "Crew was welcoming and seats ok for a short flight."
Pros: "The honesty of the staff and the constant updates"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and overall the flight wasn't comfortable."
Pros: "great flight attendants - very friendly and attentive"
Cons: "The landing was extremely turbulent - an announcement from the pilot would have been nice."
Pros: "The on board crew worked hard to make up for the 2 hour delay. I was happy to be fed in the right hour flight, but the food was not very good. I did not download the app for inflight entertainment so I can't rate it."
Cons: "The plane departure was delayed and the passengers were left wondering about the flight. There was no announcement to explain until an hour after the departure time. All monitors showed original departure."
Pros: "I think this airline is a very good airline, but this flight was shorter so it didn't have all of the perks of the longer ones that it usually has."
Cons: "In Lisbon we had to be bused out to the airplane to board, so it was a long process."
Pros: "Best part: Getting off the plane and swearing never to fly with Lufthansa again."
Cons: "Flying to Munich- flight was cancelled. Had to rebook on United for the following day. Arrived almost 2 days late (the original was direct, the United had layovers) and missed a planned trip to Neuschwanstein castle. Flying from Munich- The entertainment screen was broken, completely unusable. After a hard reset by the flight attendant several times... Still broken. She said she thought it would fix itself once we were at cruising altitude. Nope. Notified the flight attendant who said vaguely "I'll see what I can do..." Never came back to check, never got offered any sort of compensation (even something like a free mixed drink would have been nice), offer to move seats, nothing. So- ten hours with no entertainment/nothing to watch, just a malfunctioning screen. Food was mediocre. We boarded late, and left almost 1 hour late because they had to wait for an employee (who was not working, just getting a ride back) to board. Literally there and back with Lufthansa was a fiasco. On top of it, we have been back for 3 weeks and are still waiting to hear back from Lufthansa customer service. Apparently they only communicate by email with complaints. Not over the phone. So after repeated emails, just radio silence. Terrible airline."
Cons: "My luggage was lost"
Cons: "My entertainment screen did not work even after being reset twice. And the flight was too full to move."
Pros: "all was perfect and helping"
Cons: "nothing all are fantastic"
Pros: "Short flight Ease of checking in Meal provided"
Cons: "Time of flight changed by two hours earlier w/o being notified No entertainment Flight delayed due to passenger"
Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "Boarding process is a bit chaotic since they dont go by group, but by class. Seats in Business class are no different than economy."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight."
Pros: "This was my first international flight, and also first on Lufthansa, and I was thoroughly impressed. We traveled with another couple who've flown internationally multiple times, but this was their first Lufthansa flight as well, and they said it's the best they'd had. The crew were all excellent, friendly, and accommodating. There was plenty of entertainment options, refreshments, and snacks. The food was very good-much better than I'd expected. I appreciated that there were pillows, blankets, and headphones readily available as well. I'll try to fly Lufthansa every chance I get when flying internationally."
Pros: "Check-in was quick, only 4 parties ahead of me even though I arrived at the airport only 60 minutes prior to departure. Cleared security quickly too. Aircraft new and clean. Breakfast, excellent omelet, and crew extremely attentive to our needs- offering 2 drinks instead of other airlines which just give one and makes you feel that is all you deserve."
Cons: "Couldn't have been better."
Pros: "Restrooms on lower level a first for us. No waiting or lines In aisles . Entertainment selection decent."
Cons: "Reclining in seats not adequate for sleeping; very difficult to be comfortable."
Pros: "Crew attitude - so much better than on the indifferent and even hostile US carriers"
Pros: "Courteous flight crew"
Cons: "crowded plane unfrindly staff no choice of meals long wait on board"
Pros: "I was travelling with small kids and I was asked t be boarded as first one. Therefore myself and kids were not required to queue"
Cons: "As I was with two kids when doing checked in I was not able to have three seats next to each other. I was required to negotiate in plane with another passenger to change the seat"
Cons: "Ground crew in Warsaw made me feel unwelcome. The harassment and discrimination I have experienced was unacceptable."
Pros: "Excellent food great crew nice plain"
Cons: "Wish I had more time to shop Duty Free/Munich."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled. I miss two days of my vacation. I won't leave until this evening. The customer services is suck, waiting for almost 40m before someone answer the phone. Who ever answer the phone I had a hard time of understanding him."
Cons: "Bathrooms need attention during long flights"
Cons: "Seats have too little legroom. Even pushed to back in seat, my knees pushed seat in front of me. Not on person seemed to watch entertainment, because of the program you have to sign up for. Seems like basic tv or so could be free, even if there is charge for movies."
Pros: "This was a 45 minute flight - not much required"
Pros: "i liked the borading line already lined up in the different groups"
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "The flight was late to Helsinki and we missed our connecting flight to Barcelona that was also on Finnair. I was given a hotel voucher to a nice hotel with a complimentary dinner voucher. The dinner was a buffet that was limited and less than mediocre. A chicken option was not even provided, no soup"
Pros: "Flight as such was good and smooth"
Cons: "Better food, but nowadays unless you fly on business or first you are doomed and cramped beyond belief, any improvement comes at a price"
Pros: "blueberry juice, service and friendliness"
Cons: "no choice of food, little space between the seats, touchscreen and headphones didn't work, for over 8 hours flight this was significant set back"
Pros: "There was room available."
Cons: "This was not business class!"
Pros: "New plane, good food choices."
Cons: "Plane could use a deep clean. Entertainment choices were limited in terms of latest blockbusters."
Pros: "This is a great way to travel from Helsinki to Tampere and avoid the railway and train changing."
Cons: "The plane is not comfortable, but the flight is very short. It balances out."
Pros: "I wish I found somebody to take me around"
Cons: "No complains"
Pros: "I enjoy my flight"
Cons: "Again no complains"
Pros: "Well oiled service machine."
Pros: "Smooth flying"
Cons: "Choice of movies"
Pros: "Environmentally mindful with some packaging"
Cons: "There were no menu options for vegetarians on either meal. Several screens were not working, despite multiple reboot attempts."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Check in was extremely slow and we almost missed our flight. No explanation given and didn’t make sense because there wasn’t a long line. Then one piece of luggage did not make it onto our flight."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 2 hrs, told we would get a snack then they changed their minds"
Pros: "Very nice staff. Probably one of the best flights"
Cons: "The flight from India was delayed and as a consequence I missed my connecting flight to Miami. I had to put up in a Hotel at Helsinki and take a flight to Miami the next day via London."
Cons: "my plane to NY flew off without me and 11 people."
Pros: "Business class consisted of the same cramped seating as economy. No entertainment at all for the 6+ hour flight. Horrible food."
Pros: "Actually had an empty seat next to me on the flight... That never happens anymore..."
Cons: "Nothing it was an enjoyable flight all the way around..."
Pros: "Great service, staff and punctuality"
Cons: "They changed the plane & seats"
Cons: "We had to sit on the runway for a very long time after landing and I missed my connecting flight. It also took a very long time to get a hotel assignment because I was stuck in Chicago overnight. The finnair air agents at ohare were not very understanding or helpful. I was sent from their line to American Airlines and then back again. They were slow. We waited in the line for a long time for someone to come and help us. overall they were not very apologetic regarding the fact that I was stuck there overnight. It took soooo long to get to the hotel. I arrived there well after midnight. Overall it was a very unpleasant experience. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY FLIGHTS ARE BOOKED SO CLOSE TOGETHER. NO LAYOVER TIME IN BETWEEN MEANS MISSED CONNECTIONS! THIS HAPPENED BOTH WAYS ON MY TRIP. VERY ANNOYING"
Cons: "Btw you have cancelled my flight!!!!!!!! And sent me just an email."
Pros: "I'm so happy to be able to travel with my small dog in cabin. I've travelled from Miami to Helsinki and back with a dog at least 30 times in the last 16 years. The service has always been very good. I choose the airline always based on what's best for my dog."
Pros: "All standard service, nothing extremely good or bad."
Pros: "Yes, in general I like American Airlines so I was happy with flight in general"
Pros: "The flight was good. Enough legroom for me, the food was ok. And the crew was pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "Plane too small. Avoiding Airbus jets from now on!"
Pros: "Perhaps that we eventually got there and that the plane did not crash"
Cons: "There is no wi-fi There is no possibility to charge your mobile"
Pros: "It is misleading to review this as finnair flight. Not relevant"
Pros: "The flight came on time and arrived in Chicago on time. The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The sound was out on my chair, so there was no sound to the movies. The food was really kind of junky and I decided against eating most of it so I wouldn't make myself sick. The meals could really do with more produce and a few more vegan options."
Pros: "Felt captain on the original flight did everything he could"
Cons: "Boarded late, taxi' around for 3 and a half hours, deplaned as flight was canceled, waited 3 hours for next flight which was then cancelled. All understandable until the announced that the flight was reinstated only to be followed by an hour of the clerks unable to put people back on the flight which caused it to be cancelled. Sent to another airport except the free shuttle wasn't running, 50 dollar taxi ride later I got to sleep on the floor until the gates finally opened 5 hours later"
Pros: "The dinner tray was actually one of the best I ever had in a plane (except maybe for the bread). Flight was comfortable overall, I was just a little too hot, with no individual air vent."
Cons: "A little too hot, and no WI-FI. Other than that, great flight."
Pros: "The fact the plane didn't crash"
Cons: "Couldn't check in online- extremely slow at counters to get my checked bags, forced a meal of curry since I was in back of plane and there were no more 'non-vegan meals'- smelled NASTY! Ignored a lot by attendants bc rushed to get to back of plane attendant area and chat. Tv could barely be seen from window and then volume/distortion was awful while flying. The attendants were gaga about a screaming baby but ignored the rest of us"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew!"
Pros: "The fact that I got home in one piece I really like."
Cons: "Planes are old, small tv screens in aisles, older seats and headrests. I had requested Gluten Free meals and on the way to Amsterdam they did okay (besides the snacks). On the way back they didn't even offer me the second meal GF, I had to ask another flight attendant who went looking for it and found one.. so it was there, they just hadn't bothered to look for it. I also never understand why you wouldn't start boarding with the last rows? Is that just me? The aisles are always so crowded when the last rows walk in and there's always a line."
Pros: "crew were great!"
Cons: "movies offered were poor. a dinosaur (great for kids), and a movie about love (horrible for all). food was yuck."
Pros: "Crew was accommodating, entertainment movies was good and food/snacks was not bad for transatlantic flight from NY to Paris. Seats are cramped, but it is expected."
Cons: "Didn't appreciate the additional charge to select basic seats (not upgraded), not sure if justfly.com is affiliated with Kayak. I found it absurd but read reviews that if you don't select seats you might get bumped off your flight if it's oversold. I didn't take any chances so I paid the additional $29 and yet both my fiancee and I sat way apart. Arriving at the airport to check in, I saw options to select seats which made me upset even though there was nothing next to each other but way more options than online."
Cons: "Service, choice of movies, uncomfortable old seats, impossible to change my seat in advance"
Pros: "customer service was attentive smart yet caring."
Pros: "planned time of departure Fare potential for getting 5 seats so I could get a good nights sleep"
Cons: "Plane left 3 1/2 hours late due to a mysterious mechanical problem that caused them to taxi it away from the gate more than once. Relatively little communication from American whose flight it was. Scheduled departure 10 PM. Actual departure 1:30 AM I reserved a center aisle seat in a row that was completely empty a day or two before departure, hoping to get the whole row. Didn't work out. Just before we closed the doors a couple arrived at the row and took up three of the seats. Darn it. But I still got a good nights sleep. Wish there was an option to check N/A on several of the options above. I didn't speak to a crew member. I didn't eat or drink anything. I never turned on the entertainment system."
Pros: "Crew, boarding, cleanliness of the plan, and all other aspects other than food were good/excellent."
Cons: "The vegetables in the meal / salad were still frozen….inedible. In the morning in the asian vegetarian meal it was simply fruit…that was it. No protein source. I have been on many BA flights and the food has not been this poor, so not sure if the carrier who services food source has changed."
Pros: "It's a direct flight, it runs on time, the staff on the ground and on the flight are professional, courteous, and helpful. If you are lucky enough to have an empty seat next to you, the seating is quite comfortable, with adequate foot and stretching room."
Cons: "For in-flight entertainment, the ceiling-mounted screens along the aisle are hard to see and offer no choices for viewing. The food, as usual, was poor. I ordered vegetarian meals, and on the return trip for both meals was given the same soggy pasta with tomato sauce--no protein (why not add a few chickpeas or white beans?)."
Pros: "Everything was simple, straightforward, even a bit old fashioned. The crew was friendly, and the service was quick."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "A lot of turbulence. Only paid food offerings. From gate took 10-15min bus drive to plane No entertainment"
Cons: "Entertainment system is very old, but have a good selection."
Cons: "The food was terrible , the flight was canceled from Paris to phila , i didn't know til 8 pm . It was very hard to have an other flight from London to phila. A lot of souffering for me ."
Pros: "Is old aircraft. Few tv in all the airplane. My system didn't work"
Cons: "I will not fly again with this American airline"
Pros: "Great crew-service was prompt"
Cons: "Food was served an hour after we took off and we got a snack 7 hours later!! You'd think that on a 9 hour flight, there would be two full meals. Also, entertainment system was tiny (4" screen) and colors were washed out with brightness/contrast so bad, you couldn't see anything at all. Seats were cramped-I took an Emirates flight from London to Bangalore-what a world of difference!!!! Never flying BA again, that's for sure."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Fake marketing! They said it will be some snacks for economyXtra, and then 2 hours before the flight sending an email saying that the snakes will be charged! Disappointed!"
Cons: "I paid Xtraeconomy to have some snacks during the fly, and they end up coming with a trolley to pay! Disappointed!"
Pros: "Horrible service"
Cons: "Nasty people"
Cons: "Boarding procedures"
Pros: "Food taste"
Cons: "No water at toilet....??? No coffee....??? The the movie’s subtitles were out of time."
Pros: "THE FLIGHT WAS PLEASANT"
Cons: "I DIDNT LIKE THAT THE TICKET I BOUGHT DIDNT HAVE LUGAGE INCLUDED! I HAD TO PAY 100 EUROS FOR 1 LUGAGE. I COULD BELIEVE A LONG COURSE FLIGHT, A 10 HOURS FLIGHT AND NO LUGAGE! VERY ANOYING!"
Pros: "Flight was canceled"
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Cons: "It took a long time to board the plane and there was literally no line at the boarding gate. When I mean there was no line, its not that there were no people, its that we stood grouped together, because there was not enough space for everyone, so no line could form. So people simply cut in front of each other and there was quite a bit of anger and tension.Once we were on board, and seated, they came through and provided a meal. However after about 3 hours, I wanted to get some water to take medicine and I pushed the call light to get the flight attendant to come over and it was literally 45 minutes before anyone came into the economy portion. All of the flight attendants were either in first class, or hiding somewhere else. As one point 5 call lights were on and no one came. My wife got up and started looking for someone and finally I got water to take my pills. Almost an hour after I hit the call button. When the flight attendant came, I asked her if it was possible to purchase a soda, crackers, or anything as my blood sugar was low. She said there is nothing available for purchase, and did not offer anything. The only help I received was from a fellow passenger who offered a candy bar. I can not believe that there was nothing the attendant could offer me. I was willing to pay 10 euros for a soda, and they still said no. That is unacceptable."
Pros: "Smooth boarding, good vegetarian food options, helpful and friendly staff, and more legroom than my previous flight."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Our flight in Lisbon was scheduled to board an hour before departure. We arrived on-time, went through the line and were then placed in a standing room only area to stand and wait for another 45 minutes before boarding. We were placed near the entrance (I thought to board early as a family) but were later told to join another line when we asked why we sere just standing and waiting while other passengers were walking past us. The communication between staff and between your staff and passengers was poor."
Cons: "Been on schedule"
Cons: "Gate location information delayed until last minute!"
Pros: "Nothing went wrong so it is good enough for me"

Cons: "All was good."

Cons: "The lunch, bread was dry, coffee not hot"
Cons: "Late from Lisbon."
Cons: "Our checked luggage was lost and didn't make the transfer in Lisbon. Then when trying to resolve this, it was difficult to reach a representative in Hamburg. The line would ring and ring or go to a recorded message saying no one was available. This happened for 3 days until the luggage was delivered without any notice from the airline."
Cons: "Luggage lost and still not delivered 3 days later. This should not happen in 2016."
Cons: "45 minutes late, I almost lost my connection"
Cons: "See above remarks"
