Cons: "The films are all sensored. And the free internet is only for 30 minutes."
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Flight service"
Pros: "Seat next to me was empty, helping with the very cramped conditions. Great food. Movies were okay."
Cons: "Late boarding, then delayed further due to departing passenger. Delay caused me to miss my connecting flight in Doha. 5 Star Airline marketing is nonsense. Same cramped seats as any other airline. Boeing 777 is a disappointment. 787 is much better."

Cons: "Some Cabin Crew are RUDE fromEven though Cabin Crew manage to gave us what we preferred to eat. They are the best. Doha -Kathmandu. They treated some senior citizens passengers who wouldn’t understand english with some disrespect. In addition, we had some problem with meal that was pre-ordered. It was probably system glitch but our meal selection wasn’t registered and Crew didn’t have idea about our meal."
Pros: "Staff very friendly. Loved the adjustable headrest as I am shorter and this is the first time flying that my neck was so comfortable I didn't need my travel pillow! Food was excellent!"
Pros: "Doha airport is easy to move through; They put me in an exit row behind a bulkhead has plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Reading light wasn't aimed properly, and there was nowhere to put anything because of it being an exit row behind a bulkhead. That meant, that I had to hold anything I wanted during take-off, and landing, and the entertainment system had to be stowed during those times as well, so I couldn't even listen to music as the only controls were the touchscreen."
Pros: "I had aisle chair on a Moscow to Doha leg"

Pros: "New airplane. Friendly air hostesses and top notch service.. British Airways can say goodbye to my money"

Pros: "The aircraft was kinda old.. There was no usp plug to charge ur phone. . This was an issue for me. . I was out of charge and i wanted to make some calls after landing"
Pros: "Nice aircraft."
Cons: "Gate security at Doha was too disorganized - could have let passengers know put everything in bag instead of at last minute having to put wallet, passport, etc in open bin and be afraid it would get stolen or misplaced."
Pros: "Roomy seats & clean appearance and modern cabin."
Cons: "This is an isolated experience on Qatar but a couple of the crew members had poor attitudes. One flight attendant talked down to passengers during boarding and while serving. Another flight attendant acted as if if she was being inconvenienced when asked for water. The seat did not function properly. It would recline on its own which caused constant adjustment throughout the flight."
Pros: "The entertainment was great."
Pros: "Crew attentive, professional, appeared to be enjoying job with full plane."

Pros: "Crew was great, flight in general was okay"

I'm not sure the tray table was wiped down, or at least not very well. The in-flight tracker was completely incorrect, I was on a 4-hour flight and it read 14 hours and counting throughout."
Pros: "Crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "Delta check in was HORRIBLE! I was charged for a bag check in and had to take my bag through security and they threw away my cologne and razors."
Pros: "The movies were good on the plane."
Cons: "Everything! I was given a wheelchair, wheeled to a spot and told to stay there. I waited over an hour. I couldn’t get thru customs and security alone and I had to ask a non employee to help me the whole time, I was then yelled at by an employee because they didn’t think I was handicapped at the gate"
Cons: "They could improve the boarding process."
Pros: "Seats were comfy movie was great"
Cons: "4 hour delay on take-off and despite that my luggage didn't make it onto the flight."

Pros: "That we landed an hour early."
Cons: "That the seats were so cramped."
Pros: "The plane had more leg room and felt less confined because of higher ceilings."
Cons: "The 2 bathrooms in the rear are VERY narrow. I'm average size and barely fit. Also, the waiting area in terminal 3 at LAX is very crowded and noisy and the options for charging portable devices is minimal. I will definitely avoid Delta if I have to go through LAX."

Pros: "Good flight attendants.."
Pros: "Inflight Service is great"

Cons: "Boarding was not smooth. They got me and my son mixed up as we have same name."
Pros: "Smooth, quick and comfortable flight."
Pros: "got to change my seat and have a spacious exit row"
Cons: "I have the worst opinion of the Delta company, when I was flying to Atlanta on October 20 they changed my flight at the last minute I had to leave until my job to take another flight. Just today when returning my suitcase did not arrive they sent it to another destination. I think the company gives very bad service."
Pros: "Great Food. Good entertainment. I recommend the aisle seat if you have to go top the bathroom frequently. :-) I felt that the flight attendants were concerned about our comfort on the flights."
Cons: "I would have liked more of a music and movie selection."
Pros: "Perfect flight"
Pros: "Good food and movies. Comfy seating with plenty of room."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and gave great service."

Cons: "Never made it on this flight and in the end my luggage was lost."
Pros: "Crew was very good and nice on the flight"
Cons: "Flight terminal was changed about 30 to 45 minutes before boarding Flight was delayed due to AC problem Configuration of the plane was terrible. Little leg room but the windows did not align with the seats so a window was shared with two rows making it challenging to open or close a window without disturbing the passenger in the other row with whom the window is being shared. No charging outlets in the terminal or on the plane. Plane had no food to offer for purchase. Expected better from Delta."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Well delta over sells their flights every time and have to buy people out of their seats. This would be fine if it didn't mean that your seats have to be changed last minute and without your knowledge. I choose a window on purpose because I am claustrophobic. I did not pay for upgrade because I was able to select a seat that was a window...had I known it could change I would have. Zero communication just surprise you have a. Ew seat."
Pros: "Very new plane arrived on time no problems"
Cons: "Nothing everything was great"
Pros: "First class crew was great! Smooth ride, arrived early"
Cons: "Lunch option on LAX-AUS wasn't that good (chicken salad or meatballs), also was pretty sparse on the meal itself compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, kept us informed throughout, and were friendly. Landing was smooth."
Cons: "Bathroom ran out of tissues and toilet paper halfway through the flight. Alerted the crew, and they added tp. Bathrooms seem to have gotten even narrower, barely any room to move in there! Also, we had to sit on the tarmac after landing for 30 min due to gate traffic. A few minor inconveniences, but overall tolerable."
Pros: "The Delta crew on the flight was wonderful - but the crew at ATL really shined. A huge amount of people for connections arrived at the same time and needed to get through customs and the staff were very calm and efficient in directing everyone and making sure the line moved."
Pros: "The crew was very nice as usual. A bit too many announcements that ran a bit too long. Other than that great folks."
Cons: "No water on the plane so no coffee and no running water in the bathrooms. They did well trying to accommodate but between that and a calibration issue in the cockpit that had us running late it was not the best delta flight I've been on."
Pros: "Clean plane, good service. on time departure, early arrival."
Cons: "I did not like the way the plane was boarded- people could not get into their seats because others blocked the aisles - so chaotic. Passengers were not being rude to one another, it was simply that the process is poor. Could the zones instead reflect both location of seat and area of plane, so that those with window seats at the back board first, then middle seats, then aisle? That way if aisle seats fill first, seated people are not stepping back into the aisle to accommodate others needing to get a seat in that row, while everyone on the gang way must wait for the aisle to clear."
Cons: "New design of the the plane with side to side bathrooms at the back leaves much to be desired. Those were the smallest airplane bathrooms I've ever used!! I had trouble fitting and I'm not a large person!"
Pros: "What they offer is OK."
Pros: "Good food, service, and entertainment"
Cons: "The seats are not very cushioned"
Cons: "flight delays altered all my further plans"
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "The infotainment system could be better. My system was not working for the first 3 hours and then the sound went out out completely after 2 hours of use. Also the airbus model still use the outdated 2 prone headphone and I was not able to use my noise canceling headphones."
Cons: "The plane was delayed"
Pros: "Clean, drink and water service was good and much appreciated"
Cons: "Seats too close to each other, must have added a couple of rows. awful. Internet wouldn't work, Food is a sad excuse on a German airline."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "I liked the crew and how friendly they were. Pilots were great too. Wished they would have taken the same consideration ind DFW. The lady at the counter sent me to the wrong gate and left me there for over one hour then told me oops I forgot to tell you the gate changed. You need to hurry your flight leaves out of terminal E17 I was in c37"
Cons: "When the employee made me miss my flight (accidentally). Also on our flight I couldn’t watch a movie because the electronics did not work."
Cons: "We missed our flight because of schengen visa as we booked our flight through your app you also didn't help us about schengen visa that we' need"
Pros: "I love that I only had to take 2 planes I will buy this way again"
Pros: "They are prompt and very fast at loading and unloading. Quite a bit better than any other airline I have used. Leg room on small airplanes was good in economy, but not as good on larger jet to USA. The servers offered me ice in my water bc I am American. I appreciated that so much since I'd spent the last 12 days in Europe where no one serves with ice!"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit unorganized"
Pros: "Excellent service and food"
Cons: "Break between the 2 flights of mire than 6 hours."
Pros: "Professional staff, up to date aircraft, very clean, good meals, good selection of entertainment, very attentive to customers. Passed through many times with beverages. Lufthansa is always a pleasure."
Pros: "Overall experience was great. Crew was nice, good food, boarding went smooth, flight was on time."
Cons: "This flight went well, crew was nice, flight was on time ."
Pros: "Service was good"
Pros: "It is comfortable. Some of the crew are very nice and friendly!"
Cons: "The food is not tasty, and some of the crew are not nice!"
Pros: "The staff was kind and friendly (which always is the case with Lufthansa!). I felt like more than just a passenger but as a cared for customer."
Cons: "The premium economy seats, while more spacious, were not much more comfortable. They reclined to the point that it was awkward when using the leg rest. Would be better if the leg rest could raise a little higher.."
Cons: "There was a 3 hour delay."
Pros: "That was the most comfortable flight I have ever had. Famous German standards of excellence. Everything was just as it's supposed to be. Punctuality, politeness, order - just perfection. Thank you for such a great treatment!"
Cons: "The flight attendant did not give me any meal and there were ppl seating in my row who got. SHE completely ignored me"
Pros: "service crew"
Pros: "Crew were efficient and pleasant"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "I am so angry and annoyed with Kayak! You are thefts and lyers! I got the tickets from your site where NOWHERE were mentioned « no laggage included ! At my suprrise we had to pay extra money to check in our laggage. I will never again will book thru your site and will always tell everyone how dishonest are you are. Your telephone support staff is unsupportable ! The best to get tickets directly through the flying company, their sites are honest and correct!"
Cons: "I hate KAYAK since they are dishonest and not reliable ! Never again.I have nothing against LUFTHANSA !!!"
Pros: "Good customer service , friendly crew, clean plane. I always travel with Lufthansa to Europe and back because I like their professional and friendly crews. They always do very good job."
Cons: "Not much leg room for a tall guys like me."
Pros: "Everything was fantastic! And that is hard to say about air travel theses days. I will definitely fly Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Flight and land was smooth."
Pros: "Great crew, good humor and helpful!"
Cons: "Could have had more beverages served. But to many kids crying & screaming (not crews fault)"
Cons: "The seats was un confotble"
Cons: "Will newer agan fly business with Lufthansa!! It's not business at all just regular econom seats with short leg room and casual service. They should be sorry for that kind of business!!"
Pros: "I enjoyed the meal service, drinks and entertainment."
Cons: "My final leg of the trip was delayed by 3 hours, making us sit on the plane. I missed my connection in Minneapolis. Not happy because the airline did nothing to help me get home."
Pros: "The crew and plane were excellent and being served both food and beverages were nice."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and legroom was poor."
Pros: "Entertainment and food were good."
Pros: "Clean, friendly environment, friendly staff."
Cons: "Little space. No wifi. The food was from a Russian vendor, which is good, except the bread rolls where puffy and from the freezer. I don't think it was butter, more like margarine."
Pros: "Timing, entertainment options."
Cons: "Unability to check in with 2nd passport instead of visa. Also, No sits selection available if you have 2 passports to travel. Baggage was lost."
Pros: "See ath to mun flight comments."
Pros: "The pilots were very good as always"
Cons: "1 there was a baby screaming for about 5 hours next to me and the crew didn't do anything to help calm him down. I couldn't sleep or watch tv, neither my neighbors. Food: they served food without any drinks. I had to wait starting eating for another 10 min when they served water. Entertainment: there is no Russian language as an option."
Cons: "Very small narrow seats in business class on this flight."
Pros: "There is more space on intra European flight than on cross continental flight!"
Cons: "Still don't like amount of room."
Pros: "Nothing really. Seats are very uncomfortable, crumbled together with little space. Food quality is poor, selection of movies are very limited, tv screens are old, outdated screens. Poor selection of alcohol drinks, coffee is very poor. To be short, Typical american airline like delta or american airline with nothing good or special for transcontenintal flights. Does not allow 2nd luggage to check in without fee. For $1000 ticket I would expect more. There are a lot of companies who provide much better service for international flights: like Virgin Atlantic, British airways, Aeroflot, etc. I don't even want to mention Asian and Gulf company with much superior service. Boarding is nightmare, they make you stand for half an hour to board! Total rip off!!!"
Cons: "Stuardess and stuards were nice but nothing Else worth to mentioned. Quality of service poor to average at best."
Pros: "I was very pleased by this flight, all good or excellent."
Cons: "I have nothing negative to say."
Pros: "Everything went well. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Delays, no economy plus option"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable. It's pretty easy to sleep. And good entertainment selections. Crew comes around often to serve beverages. They feed you frequently."
Cons: "The food could have more fresh vegetables and fruit. There were screaming children, but that is not Lufthansa's fault. I also felt it took a necessary long time to exit the plane."
Pros: "I liked the food and entertainment"
Pros: "missed my connecting flight to hawaii, Lufthansa, put me up in a room and feed me, thank you. Plus got me on the next flight out."
Cons: "if I could have got off the plane quicker I maybe could have made my flight. took 20 minutes to de de board"
Cons: "I will never fly Lufthansa again anywhere"
Cons: "Multiple delays. Need to offer back up flights and hold connections for delayed flights."
Pros: "The movie section and food were very good"
Cons: "The temperature of the flight was out of control it was very hot for the full 9 hr there was something wrong with the plane and the crew was not addressing it."
Cons: "The pilot strike resulted in cancellation of my flights so getting home turned in to a challenge"
Cons: "The food offering"
Cons: "We seen other flights go out to the same destination before ours even though everyone should be delayed by the weather. Even flight taking off an hour after our scheduled flight got there a few hours earlier."
Cons: "I intensely disliked the 3 hour delay in Copenhagen!!! And that SAS offered the passengers in transit a meal voucher of only 50 danish Kronas, which was just enough to buy a tall Starbucks coffee drink but not enough to eat anything at the airport!"
Pros: "Excellent short flight"
Cons: "Did not eat"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "SAS like other airlines gives you a chance to bid on a nicer seat. If the offer is accepted, your card is charged the amount you bid and you are upgraded. If your offer is not accepted, you keep your seat and are not charged for bidding. I placed a bid for a nicer seat and was informed the day before the flight that my bid was rejected. But when the plane was boarding, I went to the man at the desk and asked if the plane was full. He informed me that it was not, and that I could pay roughly $300 for economy plus, or $1000 for business class. Online, I was ALLOWED to bid $200 for the economy plus seat. If they are going to reject this offer and then have the seat fly empty, they are a bunch of dicks. They had a chance for me to be a happier customer and to make more money. Now they lost both. What was also terrible is that when I family with an infant was moved up a few seats, I suggested to the lady next to me who wanted the newly vacant aisle seat that she ask the flight attendant for it. The flight attendant said it was fine. As the lady sitting next to me went to her her new seat, and old man from a few rows up took it. Another flight attendant had promised it to him. So, now the two of us are crammed, she's pissed that the seat she said she could have she couldn't, and I'm there like "My god, they wouldn't even take my money to let me have a nicer, EMPTY, seat." Poor communication, poorly run. Try another airline."
Cons: "Really rude flight attendant even after we boarded and left late. She was rude to people sitting in the exit seats, rudely demanding attention while she rushed through the safety guidelines. She then very rudely told me I had to pay for what I was trying to order, even though I was reading it off the menu? She acted as if I was stupid because I don’t speak swedish, but she did not speak the language of our destination, and it was a connecting flight."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Premium economy wasn’t as good as others"
Pros: "Food was excellent!"
Pros: "Leg room, bottle of water waiting at seat, as well as pillow and blanket. Large number of entertainment choices."
Cons: "Only one free drink per meal, otherwise only tea or coffee."
Pros: "reasonably comfortable seats"
Cons: "no thing to report"
Pros: "I slept the whole way through"
Cons: "Didn’t have veggies good on board"
Cons: "Expensive rates on luggage"
Cons: "I had requested an aisle seat and on both flights to and from Stockholm and Chicago had to sit on the very last row in the middle seat between 2 people who seemed to exceed the "weight allowance" that seem so important now when you flight unless you spend a lot a money on the ticket and it then becomes irrelevant !!"
Pros: "I'm surprised this is called a budget airline (or am I mistaken?!). Anyway, everything was great. The entertainment options were limited compared to Turkish, Emirates, Lufthansa or Qatar, but enough for a 7 hour flight and then some. Also, I liked that there was a bottle of water on each seat for people to hydrate. Very important, and I haven't seen any other airline do it."
Cons: "Nothing stands out really. I'm likely going to fly them again."
Pros: "Seats are more comfortable than those of many other airlines."
Cons: "Normally, I am not picky regarding airline food. In SAS's economy or "Go" class, there is no choice of food. I can think of plenty of dishes that would be appealing to many people. Yet the meal that was served, beef stew, posed a problem as I don't eat red meet. Since many people also do not eat beef due to religious beliefs, I am appalled by SAS's decision to only serve this dish to its economy class passengers. As I ordered my ticket through Kayak, I didn't have the option to request a special diet, nor did I think to do so as airlines generally do not serve serve a beef dish as their one and only."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to a bomb alert. No food or hotel compensation. Stuck in Copenhagen for a day and night."
Pros: "Efficient and friendly staff. Coach seats did recline on that Airbus model, which was nice."
Cons: "Had to pay for wifi in coach for internet access. It was dropping routinely, dial-up slow, and very frustrating. The food was on par with other airlines, minus the vegetable turnover. That was a bit odd. What was shocking to me, is that no alcohol of any kind was complimentary in coach."
Pros: "Two complimentary meals in addition to complimentary blankets was very nice. Dimming the lights for sleeping was also nice."
Cons: "They did not enforce the boarding of the back of the plane after first and business class, as a person sitting in the back of the plane it was a horrible boarding experience. Should also board less rows at a time from back to front. Even though the lights were dimmed I couldn't actually sleep, since the lights were turned back on too often to try to pass out breakfast less than 4 hours after we just had dinner."
Cons: "I hated flying on easyjet, there was NOTHING easy about it. hidden fees, horrible service, and flight delays. I am never flying with them again"
Pros: "check in person helped get me a window seat with a view"
Cons: "No food for those in back seats. Checked bag weight too tight given the flight was to and from a cold place requiring more clothes."
Pros: "The food was excellent and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "No entertainment. They didn't notify us that there was no wifi until 5 minutes before we boarded. Being older than the electronic age, I did not have movies or games on my phone. Had we had earlier notice, I would have had time to hit the book store. Since the flight was delayed an hour, they had plenty of time to notify us earlier than just before boarding. An 8.5 hour flight without entertainment made the experience unpleasant."
Cons: "The 70 euro bag check fee"
Cons: "A landing card us required from each non EU passport holder. No mention of this was ever made, and we stood in front of an open customs desk filling out the forms we could have done at leisure during the flight. A lot of other stuff was poor -- seat pitch, no free food, etc. but this was one simple thing other airlines usually do."
Pros: "One included checked bag"
Cons: "We were being charged for bottled water and soda"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing to mention"
Pros: "A340 just had a remodel. No media boxes installed under the seats taking up foot room"
Pros: "Crew taking care of us was excellent."
Cons: "Food terrible. Our seats in Plus were in bad condition, they move us that also were in bad condition, hey you are paying Plus to have good seats!"
Pros: "The leg room. The great service and attitude."
Cons: "The food... needs to be improved, even if it means charging a fee."

Pros: "It flew"
Cons: "The effort put in to work with change of plans"
Cons: "Could not even PAY for an upgrade due to a meal request, even though I brought my own food - and would waive the meal request. Inedible vegetarian meals in flight. Earbuds didn't work. At least I had my own to use. Plane became stifling warm mid-way. Friendly flight crew does not make up for the terrible gate experience and inflight discomfort. SAS cares about profits not passengers. Plan to take another airline on future flights to Europe."

Cons: "We bought tickets on priceline, Zurich to Oslo, paid $150 more for the shorter flight (by 1 1/2 hours), didn't realise the cost did not include luggage ($140 for 2 bags!), boarded late, only served water, coffee and tea, all other beverages were for a fee, landed late, bags were delayed by 30 minutes and soaked with water from the rain, some clothes inside were wet, overall poor experience, airline needs to polish their services and stop the 'nickel and dime" approach."
Cons: "instead of cophenhagen to boston, i was re-routed copenhagen to gothenburg to munich to frankfurt to boston.... the cancelled flight was on july 6 2016; i arrived home more than 24 hours behind plan i spent at least 5-6 hours in lines, went thru security 4 times....."

Pros: "Yeah Everything well organized"
Cons: "I believe so"
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us.The food was also mediocre."

Pros: "I've never been on a flight with such narrow seat and thin cushion. There was no entertainment offered for the almost 4 hour flight. There was no means of charging any electronic gears.

Pros: "The bread was fresh and food better than other times"
Cons: "Crew is always aggressive and unfriendly"
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Awoke to find ill man laying on floor in aisle next to me with oxygen. Shortly after... Passenger in seat near man on floor (diabetic but no one tells us anything) needs to lay across four seats with oxygen for heart issues for remainder of trip with staff and doctor on board nearby. Nevdr informed what was happening, never offered to move our seats or move iIl passengers. Glad all turned out ok. Could have given them more privacy and better informed other passengers."
Cons: "First class bathroom could have been cleaner and wider - very narrow, hard to maneuver"

Pros: "Good food and service"
Pros: "Really liked the new touch screens (with very good responsiveness). Also liked the food selection (the champagne was nice, so was the menu we were given)."
Pros: "Crew was nice although one fellow was a little too “nervous” and looked bossy"
Cons: "Food was awful. Asked for vegan meal they got it half right, as vegan is not vegetarian. And the second meal or snack as they say was not vegetarian or vegan at all."

Pros: "The flight had a delayed of 2 hours due a system issue, but the flight was comfortable, and the airplane was clean."
Cons: "I didn't like the check in, the personnel there were not so friendly and had discrepancies. We were a group of 6, and 2 of us were able to drop the bag in the check in. But the others were told that needed to wait 30 mins."
Pros: "Priority boarding with kids"
Cons: "Nothing special just like easyJet ir Rayanair"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."

Pros: "Staff was nice"

Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly. Plane was clean. And food was served quickly without the hassle of ordering from a menu and paying. And it was delicious. Best airline food I’ve had in a long time. The chocolate dessert was incredible. And a coffee to go with it. Made a three hour flight very pleasant."
Cons: "All airlines need to remove a row of seats and give everyone just a bit more legroom."
Cons: "Had to check in our underweight small carry on because there was no space left. Left out hotel at 3.15am. A dry croissant did not satisfy three hungry children for breakfast, the coffee was terrible and the seats too close together. Not a good experience."

Cons: "didn't have usb charging ports in the seats on one of the flights, in flight entertainment can improve."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "I was not given my original reserve seat and no reason was given"
Pros: "Nothing whatsoever"
Cons: "The "Czech Airlines" flight I purchased was actually an Air France flight number. When I arrived later than planned but still within good time, which was my fault, I reported to the Czech Airlines check-in (D2). This is very, very far from the Air France check-in (A2). No person and no sign was at Czech Airlines gate saying to go to Air France instead. By the time I determined what to do by talking ro the airport information booth and I walked to Air France instead of Czech Airlines (at CDG airport this is 5 minutes walking very fast speed on conveyor belts.. perhaps more than half a kilometer), I was past the boarding time limit, but the flight had not yet left. Then I could not print the boaring pass because of the time. When I asked an Air France employee for help, he simply said "you cannot board" and stood there smugly. He must feel great being a 25 year old who can turn people away from international flights at his own discretion to completely ruin their day especially when the plane is still on the ground. I have not even explained yet about the similarly awful experience I had when I booked the next flight (Czech Airlines at 09:45) for a much higher price (118 euro) and was not told that this Czech Airlines flight is "really" a Czech Airline flight. After paying much more to a Czech Airline person, nobody informed me to stay at the Czech Airlines area (2D) so I naturally went back to Air France since I had already had so much trouble. When I arrived there, of course, they tell me to go back to Czech Airlines and now I was again late. Thank God that I was able to confront a random trolley man who Kew where the Czech Airlines people were and try tried very hard to get me to the plane even though the boarding time was over. All in all, this was the worst travel experience of my life. I have now wasted 40 more minutes of my approximately 2.5 days in Prague to tell you this. I hope you consider it."
Pros: "I do appreciate the update via email . Great experience . Thank you"
Cons: "All good"
