It felt really ugly to be lied to right to my face, when she diditn try to connect with someone from her own staff who had tried alot of heard to work to help me rectify the luggage question.

So, never again Norwegian--Swiss was a nice change and, in the end, I paid more or less the same :-)"

I asked the flight attendant if everything was okay, and he smiled and explained that there was some rain on the way to Switzerland.

Because of the flight attendant's willingness to explain the details of our flight, I felt more comfortable during the remainder of the trip."

Pros: "Everything good"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Boarding time was supposed to be 19:10, we did not start to board until passed 20:00. Needless to say we were delayed.

Cons: "flight was delayed for 40 min."
Pros: "Food, boarding"
Cons: "Tight seats"
Cons: "This has been a nightmare that is yet to end. After being delayed for two hours out of Rome to Istanbul and missing our connection to Jeddah with hundreds of other stranded passengers from the other flights, Turkish Airlines incompetent handling had us wait in multiple ques for more than five hours only to provide us a hotel for two hours and then shuttle back to a flight 12 hours later! I have yet to hear an explanation from anyone about what happened or a simple sorry for your trouble. This is operational incompetence at full display. Never Again!"

Pros: "The crew and Rome team were great. Very accomadating"
Cons: "From Europe there are many parole headed to Asia who will overpack. I waited an extra 25 minutes in line behind a man who was over weight on luggage and refused to pay. The attendant did well but the security had to be called because of the situation. I would like to say this is unusual but I believe it is actually prett common."
Pros: "The food was great and the entertainment system kept everyone occupied during the flight."
Pros: "Food , sercive"
Cons: "both flights run late(more than 30 m) the food is really disgusting most of the crew is not nice comparing to other times i flew with Turkish or Pagasus it was very poor and disappointing"

The staff dun even look at the customer when they comunicate,please show some respect to ur valuable customers. This is the last time we take Turkish airline!!!!!!We won't recommend to our friends or relatives to take as well."
Pros: "Food and service were great. Plane was super clean and economy seats were very comfortable."

Pros: "The flight was fine, the crew courteous and everything was ok until I got to my destination."
Cons: "It turns out my checked luggage never made it to Budapest and the people at the airport did nothing to help with the fact that I had nothing on me because of that. They took my information to deliver the suitcase but since the luggage would not reach me for at least a week they did nothing to compensate for the fact that all I had on me were some books and my computer. I had to buy all new toiletries and since I am travelling for work basically had nothing to wear for my meetings. This was a really bad experience"
Pros: "Efficient and on time. Part of Star Alliance. Much better than any domestic USA or low cost European airline."
Cons: "Nothing negative"
Pros: "Turkish airlines changed my flight to another airline free of charge and for the same day. The new flight was definitely double the price that I originally paid and got my to my destination a lot faster than I would have if I had been able to take the original flight. Alitalia was a great, direct flight to my final destination."
Cons: "Of course having a cancelled flight is always a negative but the worst part about my experience was that I waited 2 hours in line before being helped to change my flight, and I was only about 8th or 10th in line. They also only had one person to help everyone at the ticket counter until 2 hours later they added another person. In the end everything worked out and everyone was for the most part really nice but that waiting was annoying."
Pros: "Aircraft was new and clean, and the crew was both professional and friendly. The food was excellent and it was a surprise to be served a full lunch on a 2-hr flight in coach class. All in all a great experience."
Pros: "The food was great and the movie selection was also good"
Cons: "The person who checked me in did not give my boarding pass for connecting flight and also didn't ask me if I wanted my bags for my layover stay inistanbul. Good thing I asked or else I would have been without essentials."

Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Ought to have better organization and identification for different boarding status .. A B C D etc."

Pros: "Everything about the process was easy. We were updated throughout via email of our gate and baggage claim number. I was also very impressed with Turkish Airlines. We had a great experience."
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable. Stiching placement is very bad and hurts. We had to turn back and switch plane after some technical issue. We landed in Budapest with more than 3 hrs delay."
Pros: "The planes were pretty comfortable, especially the first one. Even with the delays, there was overall a good turnaround time, though we still landed four hours late. The captain kept people from panicking, which was good."
Cons: "We had an engine failure during the first ten minutes or so of our flight that required us to turn around and head back to Istanbul, then wait for another plane, then reboard and try again. Our first flight was in the air an hour or so. Engine failure is always a concern - why was this issue not found during a routine maintenance check-up?"

Pros: "Service and food was excellent"
Cons: "Cabin pressure was awful last 30 mins. My ears and teethical were killing me."

Pros: "I was very happy overall with out Turkish airlines experience! The food was very tasty and the crew overall was very nice! We had a few instances with just a few of the women flight attendants who weren't the nicest but overall everyone was very nice. The entertainment was good and seats were nice and comfy! Would definitely recommend this airline!"
Pros: "Meal and two beverage services for a 2-hour flight -- all free, no stewards swiping cards as their top job was a treat. Good service, very family friendly I noticed."
Cons: "No video or movie options at all on this flight. Did not try out the audio."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "I always have a great experience with Turkish Airlines. The food is great, the people are efficient, and the airline is professional."

Cons: "Upon arriving to Frankfurt airport (gate Z) from Boston, i had an hour to make it to gate A including passport control. Once I got to to gates A50-69 I was told that i had to turn back and go through a different passport control as the one close to gates A50-69 was too busy/full. So I turned back although i had no specific gate number where the passport control was. Once I got there, after 10 mins walking (around gate Z20) around and asking lufthansa staff I came across a rather long queue. At that point I only had 30 mins until my flight to Budapest was boarding. I knew I would not get through that queue on time and there was no assistance. So I decided to turn nack and go back to gates A50-69 assport cobtrol where luckily there was no queue at all. I do not understand why i was turned away by staff the very first time I got to that passport control and why there was no assistance by airport staff. Not happy at all about that."
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and efficient. We left and landed on time a very good flight."
Cons: "See problem with the KAYAK reservation above."

Pros: "Staff, especially male steward was very professional and dedicated. Bravo for the effort for the boy."
Cons: "Had to wait more than 30 min at SJC"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Apparently the rude gate agent decided to randomly pull people out of the mass gaggle for boarding and check carryons she seemed to believe we’re too heavy or big, while letting other bigger ones and heavier ones stating safety concerns. The bin has a total weigh limit, not the individual bag. Lufthansa needs to educate its employees."
Cons: "You get onecthecshuttle bus first but then it iscafree for all when you disembark. Only 9ne stairway was operational when we arrived so slow boarding. Business Class seats are same ad economy - just the middle seat is vacant. You get a mediocre meal."
Cons: "pastry, not sandwich"
Pros: "Used both front and back doors to board the plane."
Cons: "Unfortunately, boarding wasn't well organized. It would have been more helpful if rows (1 through X) used the front door and rows (X+1 through Y) used the back door. We had people seated in the front of the plane using the back door and people in the back of the plane using the front door. It slowed the whole process down and was rather chaotic."
Cons: "Due to the reason that the flight was overbookef LH asked us to drop off our hand luggages as well in MXP, however both were approved for the cabine. Due to the late departure our luggages missed the connection so they left our luggage behind in MUC"
Cons: "Boarding free for all, therefore confusing and slow"
Pros: "Your staff is professional and extremely smart, well versed in many languages. Keep up the good work!"
Pros: "Once we got started the flight was OK. Great crew, the pilot did all the best to catch up for the delay caused in FRA."
Cons: "Once we were all onboard we had to wait in FRA in the plane until someone's baggage was unloaded. The wait time was almost 1 hour which was not pleasant esp. with small children. No entertainment onboard."
Pros: "The sandwich and wine were nice...and prompt, too"
Cons: "Was told to check in at wrong desk by databoard. This caused delay..."
Pros: "Salmon sandwich, friendly, nice crew."
Cons: "Lot of stairs, bus ride to the plan for boarding."
Pros: "Was on time , food is pretty delicious still."
Cons: "Flight crew . No alcohol available after the 1st! round. She told me she doesn't have it maybe later.. she never gave me after that. I always had it min 3-4 times before. My first choice is always Lufthansa but after this time I am not sure anymore, I was very disappointed with my attendant and made this trip a bad experience with them. Movie selection not so great either"
Pros: "it was on time and we arrived in one piece"
Cons: "the second leg from FRA to BUD entailed a massively disorganized, no queue control free for all to go through the boarding gates, all of which just led to an overcrowded bus.... which meandered through the airport to your jet on the tarmac.. they then allowed boarding from either rear or front of plane which of course lead to the throngs meeting in the middle and trying to squeeze past each other... horrible. Then... the checked bag did not make it to Budapest as they forgot to transfer it in FRA. so, yeah all in all it was a cheap flight and we got what we paid for."
Pros: "The perfekt assistance we needed in Munich. We were asisted by an exellent young man."
Pros: "Our flight attendants were very kind and caring, and we landed safely in Budapest. The kids even had the chance to talk to the pilot/co-pilot before getting out of plane, they really loved it. Thank you!"
Pros: "Ease of making connecting flight to Budapest"
Pros: "We made our transfer"

Pros: "Given free upgrade. Efficient services."
Pros: "Very nice snack."
Cons: "I never took this flight."
Pros: "We were standing in the bus that was suppose to take us to the plane for a long time, and there were no communication as to why we were delayed I believe were waiting for the plane to be ready. They should have not took us in a crowded bus if the plane wasn't ready"
Cons: "Our plane've got hit at the wheels when we were boarding the airplane. We couldn't take off until it was inspected, which I liked, but it made us about 40 minutes late to Budapest. When the airplane took off from Munich, one of the over head bin opened up which was full of carry-ons just above a family with two little kids. Everybody got scared that something will be flying out of there. I understand that no one should leave their seat to close it, but it was extremely dangerous for it to stay open, and because no flight attendant came to close it two of the passengers had to got up."
Cons: "It was late."
Pros: "Seating was good and reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "However the food was 99% sugar in the form of cookies and other over processed food. The entertainment was so disappointing with no back of the chair screen that if I could give it a 0 rating I would."
Pros: "Just about everything was great. Left on time and arrived early. Nice light breakfast snack that you don't see on many other airlines. ."

Pros: "Service, cleanliness, hot towels"
Cons: "Vegetarian option being pasta"
Pros: "plain was almost full and were no space for hand lagguage so we have to put it under seat in ftonr of us, but since there is less space in the end we put our legs on our begs...totaly unconfortable !!!"
Cons: "lower your prices, we do not to pay for your losses because of so much strike in 2015th year...for 200 euro we have to pay luggage 30 euro?! WTF?! i will next time rather fly with lowcast beacuse there is no difference except in price."
Pros: "Overall flying experience was good"
Cons: "It was a morning flight but check in counters were very less and as s result there was long queue. For a morning flight when the passengers get up almost at wee hours to report to airport , the check in should be faster so that they get some time before boarding for a cup of tea or coffee."
Cons: "No way to get hold of Lufthansa. They put you on hold and then hung up the phone. I went to the airport and no one was there. All they did was put up a letter saying you could rebook under certain conditions or ask for your money back. h"
Pros: "The crew was very kind"
Pros: "Confort and kindness"
Cons: "It was too cold"
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Cons: "All of the less than good, obvious!"

Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."
Pros: "Smooth and faster than expected trip. I felt free to get up and walk around on this long flight. Food was good. I sat in seat with extra leg room for the first time and it was worth it"
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Cons: "I booked tickets via Delta, operated by KLM. They lost both of my check in bags in September, and it happened again today for the same scheduled flights. Had 4 hours of layover and KLM still wasn’t able to manage it."

Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"

Cons: "Not a lot of shoulder room being in the middle seat. But it had adjustments options for a lot of other things which were good."
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."
Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "Tiny old cramped plane."
Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Pros: "Professional, friendly service. Punctual, safe flight. Comfortable, spotless airplane."
Cons: "What is there not to like about KLM? I cannot find anything."
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "Limited movie selection. Crew seemed stressed. Gave me wrong meal and then swaped for the right one. I asked for Diet Coke and was given white wine. Food quality was not good."
Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Pros: "Service was good"
Pros: "For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies."
Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Pros: "Special treat for King's Day Friendly crew"
Cons: "15 min late boarding 30 min delay leaving the gate Very little leg room"
Cons: "Very slow service. I wanted to by several goods from duty free. But crew served only first 20 rows of aircraft."
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."
Pros: "Flights left on time, arrived ahead of time. Seats comfortable. Baggage arrived quickly. No charge for wine/beer, although I do not imbibe when flying long distance. Food ok for airline food."
Cons: "Unable to pick seats in advance,, were assigned seats that did not recline for 11 hour flight. One bathroom not functioning. Very limited movie choices for inflight entertainment. Seat belts much shorter than other airlines, so very confining, unable to loosen to relax in any position other than sitting straight in seat. In Rome had to check in & go through security at Terminal 5 then get bussed to Terminal 3. Only airport where we had to take out all electronics, including converter plugs, headphones, etc, place in a flimsy clear plastic bag ( that broke ) to go through security. Line to check bags pretty slow for number of passengers. Glad we had plenty of time."
Pros: "Crew was excellent explaining about the (short) delay."
Cons: "My family of five spent a lovely week in Sardinia. Our return flight took us through Rome. We were boarded an hour ahead of departure from Rome for our 10+ hour flight, only to be held on the ground for a one hour delay. Barring equipment malfunction, this is a totally unacceptable way to treat people. Be assured that I will avoid Rome in the future if at all possible. I trust that Rome nor Italy need my tourist dollars and there are many lovely other places to spend them. Exceedingly disappointed, Pam Just"
Pros: "Smooth flying so got some sleep"
Cons: "Clearer back-to-front boarding process"
Pros: "too crowded , not organised enough"
Pros: "All in time"
Cons: "If we hadn't been delayed for an hour due to issues with late passengers Breakfast was minimal and not very good Entertainment options were limited Some of the crew seemed dismissive of African or African-presenting passengers"
Pros: "Efficient and very nice crew"
Cons: "90 minutes delay for departure from Brussels to Washington..."
Cons: "vegetarian dish was very poor. main dish was ok but quite small, the light dish (breakfast?) was just a piece of bread, might as well not serve anything. Entertainment was very poor, limited selection of movies and very silly tv shows."
Pros: "The chairs were comfortable the staff was very attentive and nice"
Cons: "I cant really say anything bad except for the fact that my luggage was broken but i did go to the counter and the person was very nice and handled the issue very proffesionally"

Cons: "Once in Houston took 30minutes to the luggage to be delivered"
Pros: "The flight was pleasant and the crew was friendly and professional. I pre-ordered a special meal, which came with no problems."
Cons: "The boarding process was so disorganized. They called us for boarding but crammed all of us into a waiting area before the boarding door was open. We were all standing in tight conditions for 50 minutes before we were let through and ended up taking off late. They later made an announcement on the plane that this was due to a problem with the airline's cleaning crew."
Pros: "Ok flight."
Cons: "My luggage bag was lost, which contained my entire life."
Pros: "Ease of boarding, reasonably comfortable seats on a short flight."
Cons: "No liquids (soda, coffee, water) offered."
Cons: "I never boarded Brussels airlines. United Airlines put me on TAP or TP which I did like. But my luggage wasn’t forwarded until the 15th dec. Brussels had many natural disasters. My problems I believe were with either United Airlines or Swissport Luggage department"
Cons: "Read above!! WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!"
Pros: "Everything was perfect, highly recommended"
Cons: "3€ coffee, no space, flight overbooked."
Pros: "The crew was polite."
Cons: "Food was bad. Seats not very comfortable. Food was awful. Very few movies in English."
Cons: "Probably nothing to do with Brussels but the boarding out ot IAD was very unorganized."
Pros: "Long flights are never fun It helped that the crew was helpful and pleasant Food was ok but there could have been more offered It was an 8 hour flight and there was one meal an hour after take off and then just a very small snack and drink an hour before Not enough water was offered throughout the flight"
Pros: "The crew was on point, the comfort was great though the plane was a bit cold they had plenty of blankets. The organization of finally getting onto the plane was great."
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing and disorganized. Perhaps it's always this way but they began boarding rows 32-47, but never changed the monitor when boarding of additional rows began. I didn't understand the need for extra security prior to arriving at the gate either. I was already in the terminal, but then needed an additional sticker on my passport. Not enough options in the entertainment section."
Cons: "Poor customer service."
Cons: "Brussels Airlines was obviously throwing around the luggage as my hard shell suitcase was cracked irreparably when it arrived at the carousel."
Pros: "Not too much"
Cons: "I'll begin with the order of sequence of all that went wrong: 1. A huge queu while we were waiting for checkin in Rome (waited for more than 30 minutes) 2. The steward didn't agree to take a gymnastics hoop to the aircraft, despite its being super light. By the way, the inbound flight the hoop was taken into the aircraft; 3. We (family of 3) were seated separately, what made a huge stress to our small daughter. 4. There were no AC socket in Brussels airport (there were, but not charging) during transfer. 5. Our baggage was not delivered, which is very unpleasant :("
Pros: "I had a comfy seat at exit row. The team was great."
Cons: "Over 30 minutes delay. The luggage pickup was a mess, the belt wasn't emptied for previous flights which created a huge mess."
Cons: "The on flight entertainment and the very few meals. (In the second flight, there was not even offered coffee!)"
Cons: "This is a low cost airline. No food, no entertainment, At least the crew was polite."
Pros: "Good movies , decent food"
Cons: "Boarding took forever and cause a departure delayed of 1 hour."
Pros: "The seats in the plane were amazing. Maybe older but better than the new ones."
Cons: "No infotainment screen"
Pros: "Clean, professional and great meal!"
Cons: "What a surprise when our United Airlines codeshare on Brussels Airline did not even allow us a drink of water free on our two hour flight. They charged for everything including water. Shame on them! And shame on United Airlines to codeshare with a carrier with such poor customer service."
Cons: "The fact that they went on strike and left us with no one at the gate when we arrived or no one to explain what is going on. Very difficult / stressful time when in a foreign country."
Pros: "I flew on United, not Brussels, on this leg, too."
Pros: "Pleasant staff, entertainment system is ok although a bit outdated."
Cons: "Our flight (operated by Air Canada) was delayed due to a control tower fire. Other flights seemed to have been delayed 1 or 2 hours, but ours was delayed 3.5 hours. That's not really the airline's fault, but it seems like they didn't want to communicate updates or give us any options for alternate flights. They also listed the delay at just under 3 hours, rather than the real 3.5 we were late leaving the gate (to avoid giving out vouchers, I suspect)."
Pros: "The flight was on time!"
Pros: "Flight time and plane were fine."
Cons: "United charged over twice the fees for extra bags! I feel this was unfair."
Pros: "I loved the crew and the ease of boarding"
Cons: "I had a full day of flying, and there weren't any snacks made available!"
Cons: "We weren't allowed access to fill empty water bottles before boarding the plan. The plane made a stop at Kigali, Rwanda, where it was cleaned, resupplied and picked up passengers. It was almost 4 hrs. before we were offered water to drink. Drinking water is vital for maintaining health while travelling."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "No free food offered though i was in transit all day, uncomfortable chairs, no entertainment"
Pros: "Loved the entertainment options"
Cons: "Lost luggage, low food quality, long lines for transfers"
Cons: "I didn´t like arriving to Sevilla with no luggage and no explanation of its whereabouts. I appreciate finally getting it 4 days later but I was not happy about me having to spend time and money going back to the airport to get it myself since your company was unable to deliver it to me. I expect full compensation"
Pros: "I liked that my seat was by the window and I saw the most beautiful sky in my life! And the seat next to me was empty so I was able to stretch my legs and even lay down to sleep. The crew was very attentive and knowledgeable. Food was very good, I was just glad that I was fed."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like is that turbine was blocking my view but I wasn't a big of a deal at all. I was just happy that all that long flight I was sitting by the window and was able to see the sunrise."
Pros: "Nice flight and very good Smoot Landing."
Cons: "I like Everithing. It was amazing. Ilove it. Thanks.Dr. Moctar Bayor,M.D."
Pros: "entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Could have used a blanket, was chilly throughout the flight."
Pros: "I fly United all the time and they do a great job! I specially love their Economy Plus seating option for Milage Plus customers. There is so much let room! Really make the difference on long flights."
