Cons: "It was warm on plane"
Pros: "Good Timing"
Pros: "The crew were all very nice and the food was good."
Cons: "The AC never seemed to work well...on the entire 10+ hour flight...so, that was pretty miserable. Especially sitting on the tarmac for 2 hours waiting for a mechanical issue to be fixed. That was bad."
Pros: "Food and crew amazing..I guess Turkish airline going to be best"
Cons: "Late arrival from Cairo & last minute gate change added to confusion of time zone changes - was supposed to be 2&1/4 hour layover but I just made last call for DC departure."
Pros: "I liked the food, it was delicious. The flight was on time, the boarding was organized."
Cons: "There was a steaward who was not very friendly whenever I asked for something which was a right he would make faces. He even passed my row and did not serce us and I had to ask the steawrd of the other aisle who was very friendly and nice. I was very desappointed by his behaviour. It was my first time on Turkish Airlines."
Pros: "Wheelchair passengers should like any other flight have gate to gate service."
Cons: "Wheelchair service. Very poor"
Pros: "They crew were very pleasant and polite. It was one of best flights I have had internationally"
Cons: "The heavy turbulence but, that's beyond their control"
Pros: "As always Turkish Airlines has exceptional service"
Pros: "І was a passenger with your wonderful Airlines from IST to IAD last week Nov 3rd 2017 and because of misunderstanding and conflict with captain my flight was canceled by him. І don’t remember his name correctly but it was five letters and both vowels (2,4) were “E”. Could you please to let him know that І would like to apologize for my behavior and assure him that it was nothing against him but more about hormonal issues which І believe every woman has more or less during the pregnancy. It is a really big issue for me and my body now. Once again, І do apologize for my actions and that conflict. І didn’t mean it."
Cons: "Very bad seats."
Cons: "See volume issue from earlier."
Pros: "The food was plentiful and delicious. Fare price was excellent."
Cons: "The seats were too small. The layover in Istanbul was too long."
Pros: "The team"
Pros: "The food was the best airplane food I've ever had and the alcohol was free. (By contrast, our SAS flight cost nearly twice as much, left two hours late, causing us to miss our connection, the food was medicore, and the alcohol cost extra). The warm towels were a nice touch. I also appreciated the video regarding in-seat stretching exercises, which were particularly helpful on a long flight. It was nice to board from both the the back and the front of the plane."
Cons: "The seats were too cramped for an 11+ hour flight. One minor annoyance: the flight left in the morning and remained sunlit the whole way as we were heading west. The passenger behind us was trying to sleep and complained to the crew about our shade being up even though she was not wearing the eye covers the crew had given everyone. The crew asked us (politely) more than once to put the shade down, but the electric light was not sufficient for our reading. I don't fault the crew for trying to accommodate an unhappy passenger, but it was an imposition on us as well."
Cons: "In Istanbul, wheel chair facility was not provided. Wheel chair facility was there with itinerary."
Cons: "The transfer at Istanbul airport was somewhat chaotic and disorganized."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and welcoming"
Pros: "Very friendly airline, on time always, good in-flight entertainment¿"
Cons: "I was disappointed that the airline proactively cancelled the flight I booked and then refused to rebook me onto another airline and failed to offer me a return home within 24 hours of the flight I'd originally booked. Then, when trying to resolve the situation, the airline repeatedly gave me the runaround, directing me to talk to various people in person, and on the phone, before finally making clear that they wouldn't rebook me. Why waste my time and give me false hope if they weren't going to do it?"
Pros: "Everything except the chair was uncomfortable"
Pros: "They were out of the chicken in meal even before they got to a quarter of people. They did neither had an option of vegetarian diet. So basically you cannot eat anything but the sandwiches if you don't eat beef."
Cons: "No classical music in the suggested list."
Pros: "The flight attendants were lovely, they worked smoothly and did their best to manage an unpleasant situation. The facilities are also excellent, and as always, the fresh flowers and hand lotion and such in the toilets was a nice touch."
Cons: "The food was not up to standard this flight, mostly passable, but our pasta inexplicably tasted chlorinated, as if the noodles had ben boiled in pool water. It's a mild complaint, though. Plane food isn't always sterling. The true problem, unfortunately, was in the form of other passengers. Despite having an excess of available space to stretch out, our seats were surrounded by utterly out-of-control children. Crying babies is understandable, it can't be helped, but if your children are running up and down the aisles [including during the landing], sitting on other passengers [myself in particular], and lying down in the aisle to sleep [and the flight attendant had to ask multiple people whose child that one was because no one wanted to own up, apparently] they have no business being on a plane. I don't even care about the annoyance at this point, their behaviour was inherently unsafe and the parents just didn't care."
Cons: "Turkish airlines do not care at all about passengers from other countries (other that western Europe and USA) - my flight was cancelled but the airline reps did not bother to tell 150 plus passengers until the end... passengers got angry and one rep took us to the hotel desk, confusing with boarding passes and passport control on the way - forcing us to waster 3-4 hours; we were provided hotel accomodation at midnight (flight was supposed to take off at 9 pm - maybe they were avoiding to spend on out meals???"
Pros: "Choice of in-flight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. It smelled, The food was not up to par."
Pros: "So many movie choices and great food, wasn't hungry once!"
Cons: "Worst boarding as flight was late and who ever was boarding us was rude, I get in my seat was taken, flight attendants were the rudest Iv ever dealt with, anything I asked for was not available, air conditioning was not working in the middle part of the plane. I could not stand sitting so I stood in the back the WHOLE 10 hour flight from the heat. I was so uncomfortable I will definitely take action on this one. I will demand a full refund the whole way I was extremely upset."
Pros: "Again, service was awesome business class cabin temperature should be lowered as it was hot."
Pros: "Crew was great, very friendly"
Cons: "Everything else. Small space, food was not very good, bathrooms were dirty."
Pros: "From the first person I met (the man who printed my boarding pass at the counter) to the crew on board each flight, I was very impressed with the people at Turkish Airlines :) Everyone was very pleasant and helpful, and made my trip enjoyable."
Pros: "Loved all around."
Cons: "I loved it."
Pros: "It was an excellent trip with THY. The crew was very attentive for the requests and the needs of the passengers at all time (regardless of inconsiderate traveler). Since it is usually too expensive for me to travel with THY, one still can get a great deal if looked for deals in advance. Some of the best things about traveling with THY are being able to check 2 bags, unlimited drinks and food at all times and more leg room. Max"
Pros: "The dinner was good but they ran out of chicken immediately so there was only beef. Meal service is very slow and it takes them on average an hour to take the trays away. The lemonade is very good"
Cons: "No leg room. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "Waiting time was too long between 2 flights"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Not comfortable"
Pros: "When they did speak clear English they shouted at passengers to 'Shut Up and you'll wait'."
Cons: "Counter people at Turkish airlines in Istanbul told us to 'Shut Up and you'll wait'."
Cons: "By far Turkish Airlines has the least amount of leg room available on an international flight (coach class) that I've ever traveled . . . and I'm saying that as a career pilot. If you are over 6' tall, you will be in agony on any flight that crosses the pond (I traveled on their Airbus A330 and Boeing 737 . . . same story). My tailbone was pegged to the back of my seat, yet my knees were still smooshed into the seat in front of me. I was absolutely miserable. I ended up standing in the back next to the toilets for over 2.5 hours of the 10 hour flight because that was more comfortable than sitting in this cattle car."
Cons: "Leg room was terrible in economy and food was poor from the USA"
Pros: "fast boarding"
Cons: "Staging at the gate was chaotic and disorganized. The passengers formed a big mob since there were no instructions for where to form lines for an organized boarding. Passengers could not hear boarding instructions from the front desk."
Pros: "Food was good and crew were helpful."
Cons: "Seat could have been comfier!"
Pros: "See my earlier remarks"
Pros: "One of the crews interrupted me in the bathroom while I was using the bathroom by banging on the bathroom door saying I had stayed more than 20mins in there and that you guys have time limits to be in the bathroom even when I tried to explain to her from the bathroom that I had constipation, she"
Cons: "She would not listen to me. I had to come out, unfinished, embarrassed and couldn't even wash my hands before going back to my seat. Other than that, every other experience was excellent. Please lecture your crews about constipation and to listen. Thanks."
Cons: "They ran out of vegetarian options so I only could have salad, bread and butter"
Pros: "I loves the pilot. He seemed to love his job and would make a couple funny jokes every time he spoke on the speakers and I never see that. Loved him and his landing was the only one not giving me any ear aches."
Cons: "Flight attendant missed couple lines of food and after letting them know instead of bringing the cart back they were tossing the entire plate on top of the head of the other passengers. One of them fell of right on one of the passengers. The second thing that irritates me is that one of the flight attendant approached me and was asking if I want chicken beef or pasta and I said chicken and she was like that is not an option in a very rude tone as of I am dumb or deaf of some sort. The other passengers also confirmed that they heard she did say that chicken was an option She could’ve nicely said it or apologized for telling an option that doesn’t exist. Instead she was giving an really bad attitude about it. Very irritated"
Cons: "Delayed boarding for no apparent reason. The plane was sitting on the tarmac for at least 2 hours before scheduled boarding."
Pros: "Food was great!"
Cons: "Meals not very good either way. Only movies that were not hits. Need more classic movies"
Cons: "When I booked with kayak I was not given the option for a vegetarian meal, so I was not able to eat a meal. I was sat next to a five year old invading my personal space. When I developed a migraine from lack of sleep, it took 15 minutes before my ring was answered for water."
Cons: "Quite satisfiedoverall"
Pros: "On time, no complaints"
Pros: "The Staff"
Cons: "The food. I don't eat many food and the wasn't much selection."
Cons: "Requested vegetarian and was served vegan"

Pros: "Lufthansa kept to the time schedule"
Cons: "At Frankfurt, the boarding gate was changed two times."
Pros: "staff at airport were friendly, helpful"
Cons: "telephone reps NOT helpful and do not know the airplane seat maps"
Pros: "Very friendly personal, good food and drinks."
Cons: "Delays in Nice led to a narrow window for connection. More than ten people were left behind - doors practically closed in our faces - and Lufthansa was wholly unhelpful in rescheduling flights. Lines to speak with agents were absurd and then attendants had to take breaks instead of resolve issues. There were no solutions offered, only poor communication and an unwillingness to accommodate a significant number of customers who were inconvenienced. Finally, a "random inspection" led to a handful of passengers being surveyed by the German local police. Interestingly, a number of us were Hispanic Americans. The whole experience was extremely negative."
Pros: "Excellent connection arrangements in Munich. Departing gate just steps away from the arriving one!!! German punctuality as well."
Cons: "Too little space between consecutive rows on the plane."
Cons: "It was my bad luck to be near two children whose parents would not keep them quiet and who played games on their screen for nine hours straight, shrieking the entire time. Nor did any of the stewards help or say boo to the parents."
Pros: "Lunch was good."
Pros: "Lufthan changed aircraft and totally screwed by seat assignment, very bad."
Pros: "Everyone is very very nice!"
Cons: "Luftansa gives up and goes out of business."
Cons: "obvious crew disapproval when walking up and down the aisles to keep lively one year old entertained and from crying!"
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "It took over three hours for them to unload our baggage. Completely unacceptable. Terrible coordination and planning with the Dulles baggage handlers."
Pros: "I called Lufthansa customer service on 8/10/16 the day before our flight because I wasn't feeling well and was concerned that I might feel worse the next day and have to cancel our flight. The lovely Customer Service rep was so sweet and concerned about my health, answered all my questions about what to do if I needed to cancel, and told me to call back anytime for more help. Also the flight attendants remembered my food allergies and were very attentive on the flights."
Cons: "crowded plane unfrindly staff no choice of meals long wait on board"
Cons: "Very tight connection and a long distance between gates. Advising customers of this in advance would be helpful."

Cons: "Second baggage charges"
Cons: "Wish I had more time to shop Duty Free/Munich."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Landing was very rocky."
Cons: "Waited for 5 hours, and then rerouted to Houston"
Pros: "Lufthansa is a superior airline with friendly, helpful staff. It is always enjoyable to fly with them!"
Pros: "Flight was operated by United Airlines. Easy boarding, friendly crew. Pillows, blankets, and headphones provided plus free house wine and beer as well as the usual coffee, tea, soda. Seatback video did not work for me, but I had no plans to use it as I needed to sleep on the flight. Excellent vegetarian dinner of vegetable korma, chickpeas and rice. Heated snack was not meatless, though, so as a Catholic flying on Friday had to pass."
Cons: "Vegetarian option (or meatless Friday option) for snacks as well as meals would be nice. They are in the process of changing to personal device entertainment, so seatback screen issue will not be a problem in the future."
Pros: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "The seating space is horrendous, I am 5 ft 8 and felt like I was sitting with my knees at my chest, horrible horrible seating"
Pros: "Customer care was super supportive"
Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"

Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk. This would mean that others did not have to queue for 25 minutes because the check in girls also had to deal with them"
Cons: "Our lougage did not arrive"
Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."
Cons: "Except for the man next to me - great!"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Pros: "The seat was spacious and the concept of the evening meal being the lighter option was innovative and well thought out"

Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed a little due to weather as was takeoff. Cant blame them for weather but the connection was very tight."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "Crew good flight was fine apart from delay due to fog in Amsterdam but kept informed"

Pros: "Entertainment was good, and crew was very nice and accommodating. Flight was very comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "The food was okay, not that great."
Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."
Cons: "Long stop over at Schiphol. Too Long!!!!"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Cons: "Klm flight has very congested seating Getting information about eticket was pain"
Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."

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."
Pros: "Captain was updating us with the delay status."
Cons: "You have to be gold to get the priority boarding. In other countries I can do it with my silver status."
Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Yet again it was flight delay from KLM side."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Claiming that the plane was completely full (which it wasn't), They forced just about everyone to check there carry ons. When we got on board, there was plenty of overhead space. Supposedly, we should've have been allowed a carryon and a personal item."
Pros: "Average service and food quality"
Cons: "Inside the business class cabin Boeing 777 only one toilet facility available. People is queuing."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived ahead of time. Baggage arrived very promptly. Seats comfortable."

Pros: "My air hostess was very friendly and kind"
Cons: "Food for vegetarians"

Pros: "Timing was excellent"
Pros: "This was a connecting flight from London originating from SFO. There were delays after boarding so we departed later. But we survived."
Pros: "The captain was very apologetic and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour, meaning we arrived at almost midnight and for me and a few other people their electronic boarding passes did not work properly I was refused at the departures gate and told to go to the British airways counter to get a paper boarding pass printed out. I also saw some other people with British airways electronic boarding passes having similar problems."
Cons: "I would have appreciated knowing ahead of time that 1) I was seated at the emergency exit, 2) that as a result, I would not be allowed to have my carry-on at my seat. Communication would have been appreciated."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Being delayed for 2.5 hours wasn’t pleasant. Once we finally boarded the crew members did apologise in person to all first class customers. I was sitting with my granddaughter right behind it. We felt like a second category customers.... nothing to add to it it shows it all"
Pros: "Was delayed by 45 mins but managed to turn plans round quickly and get back faster than planned"
Pros: "Professional, nice and pleasant staff, food, timeliness"
Cons: "Small leg room, thinness of Sears such that any small movement from person behind was like a kick to the waste/back, old small entertainment screen, no eye masks"
Cons: "I had to get off the plane."
Cons: "No free food even though international flight. Plane delayed on Tarmac. Luggage was left in London and did not make it to Prague until next day."
Pros: "Flight boarded quickly"
Cons: "Gate agents insisted I needed to check my bag even though I specifically brought a carryon to put under my seat should the overhead bins become full. I have worked for the airline industry for 14 years , I know how this works , and I know carry ons fit under the seat in front of me of an Airbus A319."
Pros: "staff very considerate, decent food with several snacks in-between, would fly them again readily"
Pros: "Good staff and food"
Cons: "Seats could have been better"
Cons: "the flight delayed a lot and i missed my connection flight as a result"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."
Pros: "Crew and aircraft are fantastic. ."
Cons: "Entertainment system"
Pros: "Flight attendants are very helpful. Food options are better than American Airlines."
Cons: "The seats are narrow, could be wider (please see Cathay Pacific layout - they are the best in the One World Alliance). The amount of storage space at the seat level was limited. Limited lighting available when one wants lights for personal use. Lastly, the person sitting in the window seat has to "step over" the aisle person (is he/she is sleeping) - not a good design."
Cons: "Online checkin wasn't working and the flight was oversold... After running through Heathrow after a delayed connection, we were told 5 min before the flight was scheduled to take off that it would be delayed. The coach seats were some of the smallest I've ever experienced (I fly 2x a month on average). The crew broke wheels off both of our roller bags."
Pros: "First international flight. In flight entertainment was fantastic, plenty of new movie titles to view along with music, all complimentary. Staff was hospitable and frequently came by to reduce lighting and offer food and refreshments. I’m about 6’3” so my only complaint was no room in the middle seat but otherwise it was ok. I made it work."
Cons: "Not enough room between the rows for me to adequately stretch my legs out."
Pros: "Once the flight was boarding/ boarded it was seamless. The crew were more than happy to meet or exceed your needs with snacks/ meals, blankets and even drinks."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1hr and 50min and the supervisor was less than accommodating even after my wife and I had told her we had 2more connecting flights this was going to affect. Due to the delay, we spent an additional $211 on flights and spent the night at the airport."
Pros: "Overall good experience for short flight - entertainment and breakfast not included."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Was a very unpleasant experience at the BA executive club lounge."
Cons: "Seating space are cramped."
Pros: "Chair rolm"
Cons: "No fee food"
Pros: "I worked for BA for 20 years. I was glad to book them. Ba Turned out to be AA Sat scrunched up between to big people. while in the back there were. 2 people sleeping across 4 seats. outrageous"
Cons: "No seats were allocated when i checked in for return flight. Flight overbooked. No time to change currency or stop for a tea as I had to wait and see if i was going to get a seat I was 3 and 1/2 hours before the flight."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Offer more water throughout the flight"
Pros: "The airbus 320 was clean and well maintained"
Cons: "There is not enough space to sit. It is insulting to be squeezed into such a small amount of space, particularly on such a long flight."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hr resulting in my missing the connecting flight and an extra 12 hr wait at the airport, not a happy situation!"
Pros: "No complaints."
Pros: "The food was decent and the tv's offered a number of movies and options to pass the time this was my first time flying with BA and I would fly with you again. Much improved from AA and United"
Cons: "The crew was fine, but not overly friendly. I flew BA to and from my destination. The other flight, the plane was nicer/newer possibly."
Pros: "No complaints with anything, very average."
Cons: "Flight overbooked, but compensated for that."
Pros: "Crew in the aircraft."
Cons: "Business class is packed with seats. Other passengers hopping over you if sitting in aisle and serving window passenger over you. No privacy if traveling alone. Very odd to be looking into another passenger eyes during service and landing and takeoff. Toilets not very clean and ran out of Toilet paper. No toilet seat covers."
Cons: "No complimentary drink / snack / sandwich on a ~2 hours flight that travels at lunchtime."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled because I missed the first half of a round-trip flight, even though I phoned several times to explain that I still wanted to use the return trip. This practice seems almost criminal. I paid for the flight, I should have been able to use it."
Pros: "Arrived early and smooth flight !!!!"
Cons: "Service was good a quick flight ."
Cons: "We sat at the gate after landing door at least 30 minutes waiting for cargo to be unloaded to keep the plane center of gravity within the correct tolerance. This was especially painful after such a long flight."
Pros: "Food was good!"
Cons: "The flight was late, that happens. There was no sufficient information about it though. Boarding was badly organized (could not hear BA staff yelling through the crowd). The 1000-year old 747s are really inconvenient and you could not believe how small the seating space is. To dot the i, of course we missed our connecting flight and got no information about it, again, only after running across half of Heathrow... About missing the connecting flight: it could have been avoidable with just a minimal amont of effort, or willingness, or any sign of care towards the passengers. Customer service is waaaaay behind my expectations."
Pros: "Nice Airport and BA representatives at Nice Airport very friendly."
Cons: "Upon arrival in London BA did not have a representative to direct us our connecting flight."
Pros: "Great flight, Schedule is very practical , comfortable"
Cons: "Check in personnel was very slow, and ironically telling people to hurry at the gate while taking very long time to deal with them at the check in counters. Not very helpful or polite when asked for extra luggage shipping."
Cons: "There was a bed bug in the airplane blanket. We brought it to the attention of the flight attendant who got rid of the blanket, but not before I had been bitten quite a bit. Fortunately I think we caught it before my clothes became infested."
Cons: "Due to kayak. Kayak needs to convince us not avoid them. They shuffled the problems off to. The carriers and then our data was messed up so a visa was required to return to USA even with our U.S. Passports. Where is the review app for kayak?"
Pros: "the crew were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "old plane uncomfortably seats no personal IFE"
Cons: "Old planes, disinterested crew, full flight"
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable and cramped"
Cons: "It could have been cleaner. I wiped the arm rest with my disinfectant wipes and that arm rest was dirty! I wiped everything else around me. Not clean at all"

Cons: "Overheads slammed full."
Cons: "The airline"
