Cons: "In Tbilisi there were problems with boarding pass from Doha to NYC, as they said at desk than I’ll git it in Doha without problems. The arrival was late, wat Doha’s desk they tried to give me boarding oass , but at last sent to the information desk, at that time I had only 1 hr before departure, lazy woman at dest was not so much helpful and friendly, at last I’ve got the boarding and run to the gate as crazy. It was possible to say that I can got it at the gate too"

Cons: "Mu luggage got broken"

Pros: "Crew as very helpful"
Cons: "passenger seated next to are rude"

Pros: "Everything was GREAT!"

Pros: "Service by the crew was outstanding, but special mention to Deepika who made sure I had a Business Class experience out of this world, always smiling and checking if I needed anything"
Cons: "The food and the wine selection did not impressed me. Qatar needs to make some changes."

Pros: "On time. No problems"

Cons: "Be aware! "When customers purchase tickets they are paying for transportation for the specific class designated on their ticket and not for specific seat assignments. Seat assignments can never guarantee." This is what they emailed me when they did that to me on my pre-selected & confirmed seats!!"

Pros: "Crew was really amazing."
Cons: "Wifi not working- huge disappointment. Seats a bit hard on A350. The overhead bins on the inside suitable only for tall people."

Pros: "Service was fantastic as usual for me however it seems women are not treated equally service wise as wife on all 4 legs did not get all the things i was afforded. Lighting, pajamas, bed mattress, meal choice queries etc"
Cons: "The need to pull out boarding passes multiple times-like 6 times- and having to be screened Twice. To even buy some mouthwash i had to show boarding passes. Ridiculous"

Pros: "Qatae Airways is second to non as always"

Pros: "Everything."

Pros: "Extra leg room, very courteous crew, and pretty decent food. What’s not to like? I have had only very good experiences with Qatar so far."

Pros: "Had always liked the airline and on board crew members"
Cons: "Ground crew members in Doha airport need attitude check. been spotting these too often. On Board crew members are much better."

Pros: "The Crew has been excellent"
Cons: "When I arrived at the Airport in Arusha (JRO) my reserved row 23 aisle seats for the DOH to JFK segment were changed to the (last cabin section row 31); also my aisle seat was changed to a middle seat Food was better from JFK to DOH Entertainment was lacking - movie and TV selection was poor for 20+ hours of flight time"

Pros: "Stellar crew -- super friendly, served water/juices constantly, polite, attentive. To be commended Great choice of movies and entertainment but no wifi???"
Cons: "This was an older 777 -- no wifi -- pretty surprising on such a key flight at DOH-JFK! This is not the airline's fault but I had a crazy lady next to me who was very disoriented, who could not speak English and needed assistance. No one would deal with her! She had a little pouch with her name on it -- like a UM -- so someone knew something was not right when they put her on the flight. I bought drinks inside the terminal for this 14 hour flight but they were all confiscated at the additional security at the gate!! WTF"

Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"

Pros: "Need to give people cheap access to wifi"

Pros: "Did not provide hotel even in a 10 hours lay over. The security personel does not know how to behave with passengers."

Pros: "Comfortable, on time"

Cons: "The planes weren't as comfortable as others I've been on like the double deckers of Emirates. Their economy class was NOTHING special. Everyone talks about how superior Qatar is, but I found nothing special about it...the seats, the food, the entertainment were all basic and nothing fancy. The crew, while very sweet, seemed inexperienced and green to me..but they were lovely and that's all that ultimately matters."

Pros: "Water bottle"
Cons: "There was no snack for the people that don't sleep, it's a long flight, I'd suggest instant noodle cups for those or chips or cookies (I know they hand them out maybe once, but maybe have it near the bathroom, so when people are hungry they don't have to bother the crew)."

Pros: "Excellent service from the crew. Flight on time."

Cons: "I had a long trip and as a result I had lost my voice, and the crew had no patient at all. I feel like she just wanted to check the box instead of really making sure I got what I wish for food wise."

Cons: "Some crews are not accommodating."

Pros: "Again, the crew were top notch"
Cons: "Comfort and available entertainment were so-so"

Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."

Pros: "Mediocre staff, not very attentive, horrible boarding experience in Doha. Food was inedible, watched a crew member place food she had spilled onto the aisle FLOOR back onto a tray to give to someone as if nothing happened, which prompted me not to anything for an 8 hour trip. DISGUSTING!"
Cons: "I will never purchase a flight with Qatar"

Cons: "I will never ever fly Qatar airlines again. The boarding for this flight in Doha was horrendous. I and a random group of passengers were made to wait with no explanation AFTER our electronics were already cleared to go through yet another security check. They said we were selected for screening but all the other people they took before us were screened the exact same way. It was stressful and traumatizing to stand for 45 minutes with no clear explanation. The crew were clearly new at their job or ill trained. On top of that they consistently ran out of food they were serving and was forced to take the vegetarian option when it's not what I wanted. I could not wait to leave Doha and exit Qatar airways. I hated my experience traveling with Qatar. It was stressful and traumatic. I want a full refund. I will also be advising all my friends to never fly Qatar. It was the WORST!"

Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"

Pros: "The was very hospitalty"
Cons: "Every thing was amazing"

Pros: "view above"
Cons: "The woman behind me wouldn't allow me to put my seat back. My comfortability was off because she didn't want her TV screen close to her face. I didn't want to make a big deal. Other than that I love Qatar airlines."

Pros: "Plane was perfect"
Cons: "Transit was just tedious very long line , had to wait for along time. The crew have very strong accent which makes difficult to understand them, but they are very nice and helpful"

Pros: "Stewardess (Thai origin) - can't recall her name... Simi something or another... was very helpful... great experience!"

Pros: "SPECIALLY THE CREW SERVICE EXCELLENT"

Pros: "Service & cleanliness."
Cons: "Nothing I remember."

Pros: "Considering how long it was, not much could have been better. It wasn't too crowded, so the seat next to me was free, which made getting some sleep easier."

Pros: "Amazing airline with excellent crew and ground staff ever willing to help!"

Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."

Pros: "The crew, they were very pleasant and good about taking care of our needs."
Cons: "The middle console video went out on my husband at the end of the flight, while he was watching a movie. This also happened on the earlier flight from Singapore to Doha."

Pros: "everything!"

Cons: "is it true that Qatar treats the passengers coming to US differently than the passengers going out of US. I noticed that the crew was giving menu cards for dinner when coming back to US. Food quality is very ad, quantity is small also. same story with snacks. they don't offer enough food overall. The crew should be trained better for int'l passengers."

Pros: "I was incredibly impressed with the on board crew. They were kind, efficient, courteous, thoughtful, and charismatic. They made the LONG flight enjoyable and extra comfortable. :)"

Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."

Cons: "No entertainment service from Doha to New York"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "0"

Pros: "The crew was amazing and helpful. The food was really good and the flight was timely if not early to my destination."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Very hot on board"

Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "More space! The crew could have been nicer"

Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful. The wine was free and each seat had it's own screen with a good assortment of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "The food could be much better. Although coming from Sicily it's tough to compare."

Cons: "entertainment sound"

Pros: "-"
Cons: "Old plane, rude crew, checked bag was not included in price. I did fly Swiss to LA last year and it was amazing, i don’t know what happened since."

Pros: "The crew was great. I was lucky to get a comfortable enough seat. Not the one I actually booked and paid for but still it was ok."
Cons: "I was told I was placed on standby for this flight despite the fact that I booked this flight and paid extra for the chosen seat far in advance. The boarding was chaotic. Very poor communication. The flight was very delayed."

Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "My own seat had ample legroom, good crew."
Cons: "Faulty headphone jack and person who kneed me in the back whenever I recline my seat. 8 kilo limit on carry-on luggage."

Pros: "Crew was always ready to help. It was a very smooth flight."

Pros: "The crew was very efficient and very helpful. They were constantly attending to passenger’s needs."
Cons: "The landing was a little rough, but my friend said that it was windy here in NY. Otherwise excellent all around."

Cons: "Food was poor, really poor, no options for the children Headphone socket in the seat"

Pros: "I was fed food and drinks varios times during the flight and that makes me happy! I never went hungry!"

Cons: "Bathroom not clean"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Crew just ok."

Cons: "Headphones are real cheap and hurt the ears...plus it has two pin socket where you can't use your regular headphones...please change this!"

Pros: "The crew were very attentive, kind and professional on their ways through the cabin. I appreciated the hot towels near the end of the flight."
Cons: "There were headphones (as well as pillows and blankets, much appreciated), but the jacks for the headphones only fit the SwissAir headphones, so if passengers brought their own headphones, they could only get a mono output. It was difficult to hear the entertainment through only one ear."

Pros: "The plane was comfortable. The headrest was great and the seat pitch and recline were decent. I was able to sleep better with Swiss than with other airlines like Lufthansa or Delta. They are much better overall for sure. The food and staff were excellent! The food quality is very good compared to the other airlines. The cabin crew are always passing around water and chocolates throughout the flight. They were friendly and helpful as well. The pilots were also very good. We had no rough turbulence and their landing skills were amazing."
Cons: "The boarding procedures could be improved. They don't have zones and everybody just line up. Families with small children are not accomodated first."

Pros: "Great complimentary chocolate."
Cons: "You would think that after spending 1100 on a ticket that a passenger could chose their own seat within 24 hours of their flight. Nope. They wanted me to pay for my seat after already spending 1100. Then they said I was randomly selected for a TSA check in Zurich. Seriously. And there was no TSA agent in sight doing the check. It was a Swiss Airline Employee. Never had that happen even in the USA."

Cons: "We had almost 8 hours delay"

Pros: "Food was great!! Flight was so much better than the United flight I took to get there. Plane was much more comfortable and cleaner."

Pros: "Over all I enjoyed flying with Swiss over the past 40 years. This was a first time my experience was not to my expectation."

Pros: "The crew made the best they can."
Cons: "The airplane was to old. The company should put a better one ."

Pros: "Staff was polite. Offering water once in a while was nice. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The promotional video for Swiss Air was way too long. Should have a way to bypass it. I understand being forced to watch the safety video but the promotional video is annoying."

Cons: "entertainment machine in my seat did not worked"

Pros: "crew was great"
Cons: "my entertainment controller did not work and my daughters head phone plug would only half work."

Pros: "Your crew is amazing."

Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight overall. Made a long flight seem not so bad."

Pros: "The flight attendants were exceptionally nice - a real pleasure. Food was also quite good and the chocolate passing out is a super excellent treat."
Cons: "It is disappointing, on an 8+ hour flight, to have the entertainment system broken. The crew was apologetic, but it still is really lame. Made the flight oppressively long."

Pros: "The crew members were polite and efficient."
Cons: "There was no climate control. Our rows were freezing cold. People were wearing coats and blankets. Four or five rows up it was warm. My husband asked for more heat and the stewardess said she would turn it up, but nothing happened. Cold air blew out of the ceiling vents for the entire flight. When we reached our gate, we then waited in a long line to have our passports and boarding passes checked again. There were several Swissair crew members, but only one person to check all of the paperwork for economy. Then another long line to show our boarding passes again, while the business class entrance remained unused. Swissair needs someone to manage this better."

Cons: "Time"

Cons: "THERE'S SOO LITTLE LEG SPACE BETWEEN SEATS ON THE ECONOMY SECTION I IS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE, SPECIALLY FOR A TALL PERSON ON A LONG FLIGHT.......ADDING TO THE FACT THAT THE PERSON IN FRONT OF YOU MIGHT DECIDE TO BE SOOO COMFORTABLE,HE'D PULL HIS SEAT ALL THE WAY BACK WITHOUT ANY CONSIDERATION!!!..THAT PUTS THE SCREEN ONLY INCHES AWAY FROM YOUR FACE!!..BESIDES, THE CHECK-IN MACHINES AT THE ZURICH TERMINAL ARE A HARD TO UNDERSTAND..TRIED SEVERAL TIMES TO CHECK-IN WITHOUT SUCESS!!"

Pros: "The plane is beautiful, comfortable and clean. The crew is happy and kind. The food is great! Overall my favorite Airlines as of my recent two flights."

Pros: "Nothing distinguishes itself for better or worse than usual in coach."

Pros: "Very clean"

Pros: "Only the crew was good"

Pros: "Friendly crew, decent-ish food"
Cons: "Def could have been more entertainment options, movie and TV selection felt thin relative to other carriers."

Pros: "Polite cabin crew. Quick check- in at JFK"
Cons: "Inability to add TSA pre-check to my profile. Very slow check- in process in Geneva. Cramped seating ."

Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly crew, nice food."
Cons: "I found it uncomfortable to watch TV/movies when the seat in front of me was pushed back - the screen was too close."

Pros: "The staff was wonderful Pleasant, quick with requests , very professional"
Cons: "I get motion sickness and found it strange they no bags were in the magazine pocket. Had to ask for it and wait"

Cons: "I wasn't on it so I wouldn't know."

Pros: "I was as comfortable as I could be"

Cons: "snacks more tv entertanment"

Pros: "Crew was super attentive and kind"

Cons: "Seat problem."

Pros: "The planes were well maintained. Good entertain emend choices. Food was decent too"

Cons: "Asked for ONE piece of bread, and such a big company. Didn’t have ONE piece of bread to provide. Shame. But not surprised, considering the focus they had with onboard shopping, cut coat, and generate revenue very oriented."

Pros: "The food/drinks"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "It was cancelled and scheduled next day"

Cons: "Seats are quite uncomfortable and not so quite flat. For an overnight flight it was quite painful."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "See above. What a disaster!"

Pros: "Attentive and friendly staff, great food and plenty of drinks!!!"

Cons: "The airport pretty much shut down for awhile so some flights were canceled. Due to the number of people attempting to check in and go through security, I missed my plane and was rebooked in an economy seat. These glitches occur but one would expect Lufthansa to have had a plan to deliver clear directions."

Cons: "See above. Going both ways..."

Pros: "Relaxed trip. We were well cared for. Again very good staff"

Pros: "Family check-in in Frankfurt is superb. Economy Plus was a really great experience!"
Cons: "The fact that I can't use my own headphones and I'm forced to use the cheap airline-provided ones (with the dual plugs). Single biggest reason to not fly Lufthansa, because I can't enjoy the movies!"

Pros: "Still use silverware and provide blankets, pillows, headphones, nice clean plane"
Cons: "The tv monitor had very limited options and froze about every 5 minutes. The screen was either very unresponsive or would freeze"

Pros: "Welcoming from the crew"
Cons: "Take off was very scared"

Pros: "Unlike the rest of the plane, row 34 is big enough to fit human beings, so this flight was great. Crew are nice."
Cons: "Every single seat in coach except row 34 or 27"

Cons: "Pretty good. Great crew."

Pros: "Everything in order and on time."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised to be offered an after dinner brandy, or a Bailey's. O"
Cons: "On both flights. The ear phone did not work correctly. Minor issue."

Pros: "WiFi access"

Pros: "Food on flight lags a bit behind other major airlines. Crew very nice and helpful though."
Cons: "Boarding process at Tegel is archaic and inefficient. Gate area too small and without access to shops/restaurants/etc."

Pros: "Multiple bathrooms located downstairs. Modern new plane"
Cons: "Movies were old. No real new releases. Food was terrible"

Pros: "Crew !!!"
Cons: "Very long distance to gate Z 69 with no time to cost my knee pain !!!"

Cons: "Tv didn't work most of time. Food was terrible."

Pros: "Good overall experience"

Cons: "crew was not friendly"

Pros: "I was able to squeeze back into Comfort Economy and make my destination, after a messed up miles upgrade - have to be grateful for the small things, right?"
Cons: "I was actually upgraded to Business Class through a LH miles award, however, that upgrade was not honored, despite the fact that I had a confirmation email from them. I had to first get to Frankfurt to even negotiate this problem. At the departure point, LH was unable to furnish me a boarding pass to my NY flight. After racing though the huge airport at max speed to make this connection, I was treated rudely at the gate in Frankfurt by LH short tempered ground staff, to the point of even being accused of being the source of the problem and being late for boarding (when I was only accorded an hour connection through this booking, and raised this concern with LH prior). Lastly, the ground crew took away my connecting flight boarding pass and nearly forgot to give me back my luggage tag. The flight crew was Ok, but just did a bare minimum to keep up with the packed and overbooked flight. To top of the joy, I got food poisoning after landing in NYC - not all food they serve was in sealed containers, and it must have been enough to cause a day of misery that followed my arrival - I can assure you that the late time and taxing and docking delays in NYC took away any opportunity to have a normal dinner, and LH food was all I had all day... Not the usual LH experience, but I may give them a break for the next few trips."

Pros: "Great flying on an A380"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."

Cons: "There were no options for food, I was just told that there was only pasta left while the passenger next to me ate chicken. This was totally unacceptable. I only hope that this was my last trip with Lufthansa."

Pros: "The chicken, potatos and spinach dish was the best. I like that they have you a pillow, cover, and headphones."
Cons: "At first the movies worked then they did a reset and my audio stopped working and they did another reset when I let an attendant know about it and it still didn't work. They never came back for me to let them know about the problem."

Pros: "They waited for those who were running late due to a previous flight delay. The crew was super friendly and there was great movie suggestions."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulance which made a lot of the passengers sick. I think also that they collected the headphones too early like 45 mins/1 hour too early before landing. Also landing felt like it was the longest landing in my life."

Pros: "Dissatisfied!!!"
Cons: "See comments above."

Pros: "I think everything was first class, specially the CREW."

Cons: "staying 11h with no assistant"

Pros: "The whole experience was GREAT!"

Pros: "The seat was very comfortable"

Cons: "They change the gate for transfer last minute"

Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Everyone kind of ran up."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Pleasantly greeted"

Pros: "Free upgrade to business class!"

Pros: "The crew was very professional and kind."
Cons: "The layover in Frankfurt was too short (45 min) and the delay of the flight Milan- Frankfurt did not help; I had to run to catch my flight to NY. And in addition, my baggage went lost"

Pros: "THE MAIN CREDIT FOR LUFTHANSA FLIGHTS ARE VERY PUNCTUAL IN TIME"

Pros: "The flight crew was wonderful! Friendly and really attentive the whole trip!"

Pros: "They had lots of movies and TV options to choose from."
Cons: "The vegetarian option was very poor. Frankly a pizza snack in place of supper is not what I expect on a cross-Atlantic flight."

Cons: "Leg space is tight"

Pros: "Yes, Very good"

Pros: "I liked how generous they were with food and drinks"
Cons: "Free WiFi could have made the flight a lot better"

Cons: "KLM lost my suitcase and did not deliver it until three days later... They refused to compensate me for having delivered the bag with broken articles inside (A pair of Rayban Wayfarers!)"

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..."

Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"

Pros: "Crew is excellent, polite and personal!"
Cons: "Plane is super old and outdated. Comfort seat is not, comfortable, very tight. TV screen is not good quality, with the old controls on a handset. No touch, no 1/8 inch audio jack (it has the old 3 holes one). Wifi for streaming freezes every other second. Just make a face lift to the plane, everything else is good."

Pros: "The socks offered in business were comfortable and nice looking. The red wine was good."
Cons: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"

Pros: "Loved the smooth ride."

Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, great crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed, no USB port and no entertainment"

Pros: "Crew great, boarding at Nice very organised, boarding in Amsterdam not so organised!"
Cons: "A queuing system would be better-it was a bit disorganised at Amsterdam!"

Cons: "Travelled business class and was ace experience"

Pros: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"

Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and the food was really good."

Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."

Cons: "Flight on time would have been good when you have a late evening arrival. Long wait for luggage at Birmingham airport."

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

Pros: "The crew were very nice, food was tasty, seat comfortable and the entertainment great as well. Will be flying KLM again soon :)"

Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."

Pros: "Lovely crew, very helpful"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The food."

Cons: "old screens and entertainment system leg room to small"

Pros: "Crew was great, very nice"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"

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."

Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."

Pros: "Wifi on Board"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."
Cons: "Not a big fan of paying for a few extra inches of leg room in a better seat after paying for a ticket."

Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"

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."

Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."

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

Pros: "expedited check in with nice staff. Security staff were pleasant, and the entire check in process for everything was easy"
Cons: "there was no lounge close to our departure gate"

Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"

Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"

Cons: "Delayed!"

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

Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"

Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"

Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"

Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late Cabin extremely warm Full flight and centre seat means no room to relax or carry out work"

Pros: "They were awesome."

Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."

Pros: "quick boarding, responsive Airline stewardess, very polite."
Cons: "temperature control was not good, service was fine, seats were not comfortable. plane need to be cleaner."

Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Stop feeding us bread"

Pros: "Seat was weary at 52H. Although there were other empty and more comfortable seats, the crew didn't let me have one."
Cons: "Food could have been of fish kind variety and hot drinks weren't available. No hot drinks, neither coffee, nor tea."

Pros: "Amazing plane"

Pros: "Connection time"
Cons: "Aircraft comfort"

Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "Aircraft"

Pros: "I liked the new airplane. Compared to my jfk-cai flight the plane was spotless and everything worked. I didn’t feel like I was on a flying greyhound bus. The crew kept the bathrooms cleaner which was great."
Cons: "I was very disappointed that I couldn’t bring water through the gate security in Cairo to jfk. There was nowhere to purchase water after the gate so I felt dehydrated and inconvenienced by having to ask for water so many times."

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Terrible business class."

Pros: "every thing"

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Lack of variety of entertainment movies, shows etc. No WiFi connection. Bathrooms were very dirty"

Pros: "Amazingly soft landings, as always."

Cons: "Not to sit in the midddle seat."

Pros: "Yes"

Cons: "If flying on time its always late even more than one hour"

Pros: "Direct flight, punctual time. Crew is friendly"
Cons: "several toilets were out of order (were marked occupied instead of out of order so I was waiting in vain until a passenger informed me it was not working not occupied). food, looked like they were trying to conserve on passengers desserts.. microscopic (toy size) containers for coffee n tea??!"

Pros: "I didn’t like anything about this airline !! the staff looks miserable I was delayed on all three of my flights! also my luggage was broken by egypt air baggage department"
Cons: "EVERYTHING ! this was the worst airline I have ever flow !"

Cons: "That I could check in online instead of the airport, to get to pick the seat I want, I was placed in an isle seat 2 rows before the end of the plane, right behind me the we only 2 seats row, and almost every single one that went to use the restroom had to bump into my chair in their way back"

Cons: "4 bags, agent charged me $100 for 12 # excess wt will no not allow me to repack to the lighter “other 3 bags 18 pounds light, total. I think a refund is in order."

Pros: "Fully flat seats, friendly crew, good food. Excellent price"
Cons: "Dated slightly worn seats"

Pros: "Good price. Direct flight. Decent food."
Cons: "Offer more frequent complimentary drinks. Staff talking too loudly at back of plane while passengers trying to sleep."

Pros: "Big plane, multiple boarding points. Food did its job & helped with the long flight. Movies weren't expansive, but good choices to kill the time."
Cons: "The crew did not have the key to unlock to doors leading to the plane, which forced everyone to wait 30 mins standing in line. It was quite silly! It delayed our flight about 30-45 minutes - not much, but really painful when the flight is almost 12 hours. The crew didn't tell us what was happening either, but it was pretty obvious."

Pros: "I really enjoyed when the plane LANDED at my Destination!"
Cons: "1. The plane was hot. In the Middle East they don't turn on the AC whilst on the ground. They only turn it on when in the air?!?! 2. The food was basic! I ordered the Seafood and it had 3 overcooked shrimp and baked fish. Not tasty at all. The bread was hard as a rock! 3. Boarding was like a cattle call!! Kind of like Southwest Airlines! 4. The Takeoff, Cruise and Landing was NOT bad at all! 5. I guess being an American, it was FOOLISH of me to ask for Ginger Ale on this Egyptian Flight!! 6. When I landed in Cairo, it would have been helpful to know that while going through Customs, I would need to purchase a Egypt Entry Visa fee for $25.00, but since I didn't know that, I waited in line for 20 minutes ONLY to have the Customs agent tell me that I had to go purchase one, then get back I line for ANOTHER 20 minutes!!!!!!! UGGHHHHHH!! 7. I flew on an Airbus that didn't have plug in for your phones to charge (maybe that's just a Boeing thing)."

Pros: "Direct flight, nice crew and professional pilot, didn’t feel the plane touching the ground while landing"
Cons: "Definitely not cheap flight ;) Food is no good , bathrooms were not clean and flight crew refused to clean it !!!"

Pros: "Flights were on time and boarding was orderly"
Cons: "Vegetarian food was poor. It was just boiled vegetables. Even the bread that was given to others was not there. They treated Vegetarian food as Vegan food (although it was specified as vegetarian), so there was no butter, no yogurt and nothing but boiled vegetables and fruit salad. Hard to sustain oneself with that on a 12 hour flight! I asked the flight attendant for yogurt who just ignored my request."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Cheap flight. Boarding was quick and thats about the only thing good."
Cons: "No Wifi, no alcohol, and food was terrible."

Pros: "People"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Long time at jfk airport"

Cons: "Baggage was not logged into the flight, although it was checked in 2 hours before flight...!!!"

Pros: "Comfortable plane, nice crew, movies."

Pros: "every thing thank you"

Pros: "Excellent experience overall, I would definitely fly again with Egypt Air."
Cons: "Only small thing was, I have seen better as far as in flight entertainment. The touchscreen was not responsive and selection not great. I brought my own on a tablet so it wasn't a big deal for me."

Pros: "Upgraded to business class at the ticket counter for a very reasonable price- comfort and ease."

Pros: "Good meals and equent tea, coffee and water in cups available. Headphones provided for entertainment."
Cons: "More garbage pickup needed- computer screens were dirty from previous flight use"

Pros: "seats were little comfy handrest where not even. choice of movies were basic. clean not a bad flight. food was decent."
Cons: "the stewards were accommodating and always with a smile. Bathrooms kept clean. check in easy."

Pros: "So organized airline"
Cons: "Head Hosts are aggressive but not so much"

Pros: "The crew was great. Very helpful and friendly."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything very poor business class"

Pros: "Great professional and fast"
Cons: "Couldnt take my camera in the hand bag which is unreasonable."

Pros: "Cheap air fare, i likeed all the services include an easy take off, landing on time, amazing food and crew were kind and comforting all customers on board."
Cons: "Cheap air fare, i likeed all the services include an easy take off, landing on time, amazing food and crew were kind and comforting all customers on board."

Pros: "Bording+crew"
Cons: "Time arrive late"

Pros: "Time..... everything was on time no late ..flight take off on time with good security Processing"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "I liked everything about the experience on the actual flight from Cairo to New York. Staff was great, food was great (two meals), drink options were great from juices, sodas, water, tea, coffee all great. the entertainment was awesome with so many movie/tv show options. and you can always get up and ask for a beverage if you were still thirsty, and plenty of toilets on the plane so rarely a line greater than 1 person."
Cons: "They seemed to run out of chicken as the dinner meal, when they got to my the flight to Cairo from NY they also ran out of chicken, the person next to me got the last one, the same thing happened to me on the way to NY, the person next to me got the last chicken, i was kind of upset but the other option of beef was still good."

Pros: "Nothing was good. Everything was horrible."
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude and nasty. They take forever to accommodate you. When you press the flight attendant button to be taken care of. They don't care at all. If you ask for help you're left unhelped."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Babies crying in nearly every row. No ear plugs provided. Flight attendants not attentive at all. Attitudes for staff left and right. It was a horrible flight. Check in was a headache as well."

Pros: "They have some interesting old films like Charlie Chaplin in their silver screen entertainment choices. Accommodating flight attendants."
Cons: "There did not seem to be any air vents to adjust for cooling down when I felt hot."

Pros: "Staff was attentive and welcoming"

Pros: "The Crew was excellent and accommodating."
Cons: "Long flight ... could not sleep... Not your fault :) I'm very tall so the comfort for me was not as good as it could have been due to limited leg room. Please try to keep us in mind and /or try to get tall folks leg room seats. Thanks.. Happy security was good, but it was a bit slow."

Cons: "i need a refund. our flight back to NYC from dubai was rescheduled with significant delays such that it would affect our jobs. We decided to book a return flight via qatar and we need a refund for this booking"

Cons: "Although the flight attendants were nice, I felt they should have gone through the cabin more often offering water or other beverages since this was such a long flight,"
