Pros: "The overall experience"

Pros: "Fantastic flight...Qatar’s QSuites are fantastic, very comfortable, Amazon my service from the crew, fantastic entertainment options, and with the privacy of the suite ...very close to first class...in fact it is better than the first products (from a seat perspective) of many other airlines such as United, Delta, Virgin, BA, etc."
Cons: "I wish there were more vegetarian options on the menu"

Pros: "I fly a lot, and I notice when things go well. There is nothing I can complain about with Qatar; their equipment is up-to-date; their service is first-rate; their record for on-time departures and arrivals is excellent, and their food is good! I will gladly fly with them in the future."

Pros: "crew is very professional"
Cons: "this plane is really old and junky. other flight times on this route get a much better plane"

Pros: "Great hospitality"

Pros: "If you upgrade...it’s pricey but man doesn’t it look nice. Their regular seats are great. Get an emergency seat. Food isn’t kosher and tastes good. Never one complaint with these guys!"
Cons: "If I had to pick one thing...it’s that their free WiFi is only on select planes...not all. Sorry nothing else to dislike."

Pros: "The treatment"
Cons: "It was too late"

Pros: "Very unfriendly and non cooperative ground staff. They treat different colored people differently"
Cons: "Staff looks down at Brown skin"

Cons: "Airport hotel costs around 350$ No entry visa for layovers exceeds 8 hours as they announced The answer they’re not giving entry visas is you bought a discounted ticket!!"

Cons: "The crew at the ticket counter was quite rude. Our suitcases were 2kg heavier so, in front of them we opened and removed items and then they still made us go through security all over again"

Pros: "Office staff was cooperative Overall flight was good"
Cons: "Ground crew was rude in behavior - not all but briefing counter staff"

Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"

Cons: "The flight departure from Dar was moved up an hour and the congestion at the airport made it close. Also I need a name tag on a checked piece of luggage. When I asked, I was told that none were available. The check in person was not pleasant or helpful. I also had to watch to make sure that the luggage labels were attached to be sure that they would make it to Chicago. Once on the plane there was an unrudy boy sitting in front of us jumping in his seat, never wearing his seat belt kicking the seat, turning on the light beating on the tray table, calling the flight attendant. The adult ignored the child through the flight. It was one of the worse experiences I have had on a plane. I would have to think very hard before I fly Qatar again."

Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."

Pros: "Upgrade to 1st Class. Very grateful for the experience. Outstanding service. Very professional crew. Awesome recliner seats. What's not to like about premium service?"
Cons: "Too short leg :( This upgrade would have been awesome for the longer leg of the trip (for a much needed decent sleep)."

Cons: "- Airline changed flight and offered little forewarning for what was a material change (from 1 hour transit time to 9 hours) - Boarding process was inordinately slow with little attempt to move this along quickly - Service was halting at best"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "No consistency with hand luggage. My companions and I were held to strict weight limits. Others were getting on with three and four bags."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! They saved this rating."
Cons: "Old plane. No power outlet, no wifi, entertainment system was glitchy... if it was not for the crew, this would have been the poorest u could get. Doha security and transfer were unruly, long, and a mess. Terrible experience there. Nearly missed connection. Dreading going through there on return flight"

Pros: "Good legroom with respect to others airlines.. the plane is clean.. multiple bathroom so no long waits Dinner was tasty.. however the breakfast was not."
Cons: "Cheap headphones will not isolate sound from airplane engine for such an expensive entertainment"

Pros: "I like Qatar Airways very much. Ground and air personnel are all professional and courteous. I will fly Qatar every time I can."

Cons: "I was Told the flight form Doha back to Houston was over booked so I had to get re-routed through another city. For a $6,600 business class ticket this is very bad form."

Pros: "Was not a pleasant flight"
Cons: "Basic onboard entertainment, even on business!Staff Could be more genuine!They handled the cabin baggage Like potato not helpful."

Pros: "New plane. Decent legroom."
Cons: "Not enough food was served for a 16.5 hour flight."

Pros: "I like that the air stewards bring you water and drinks throughout and don't judge you for being too thirsty. I like that they respect that it is a night flight and serve the meal quickly so it can be dark for the whole flight and you can sleep as much as you can. I like how efficient the layover is in Doha - only 40mins!"
Cons: "I don't like when they don't ask the person in front to move their chair up for the meal and the passengers have to ask each other. I don't like that they can't tell you the gate of your connecting flight and how long it will take to get you there - including if you will need to take a bus and the train. I think this could reduce a lot of anxiety. If they could do this, it would also be helpful to let people who have a connecting flight that is boarding in the next 30 mins off the plane first. This would save pushing and shoving in the aisles... and would also reduce anxiety about booking a flight with such a short layover."

Pros: "The leg space is what got this flight a 3 star."

Cons: "There were no headphones and again with the remote Oryx screen that is just way too complicated and freezes like crazy."

Cons: "The seat cussion on the airplane is to hard for a 5+ hours flight. Not enough food for vegans"

Cons: "Not allowing water on the flight made it extremely long and unbearable."

Cons: "There was no water in the flight's restrooms"

Cons: "As I missed this connection flight we were re routed to Cairo then Larnaca. We landed at 6:30pm and didn't get to our hotel until 8:30. Missed my friends wedding. It was a disaster. As a Qatar airway member I feel let down and am disappointed with the lack of interest shown by the airline in relation to an apology of any kind. What can be done about it. I've booked a trip to be a part of my friends special day and instead get to the reception as guest start leaving. I also get fined from the car hire company as they cancelled our hired car due to a no show and have ended up with a less inferior car as that's all they had left. No real apology given si is like to know what are you doing about it?"

Cons: "The food was not as good as previous Qatar flights I have taken. Should be more meditarrean/Arabic tastes to suit the passengers."

Pros: "What they get right: The planes are comfortable and the flight attendants are attentive and kind. The price is okay, and there are plenty of flights from Doha to Manama."
Cons: "What they get wrong- Taking the Doha to Manama flight is like riding the commuter bus from New Jersey to New York City in the U.S. You get there, but that's about it. The waiting area is too small for the number of flights and quantities of people processing through. Many passengers were sitting on the floor while awaiting their flights. Not classy. The boarding process is tedious, and, inefficient, with people cutting in line, others trying to re-negotiate seating while getting their boarding cards scanned, and others not allowing room for additional passengers on the bus that takes you out to the plane. They get on, and block the doorway, so that they can be the first off when we get to the plane. It seems like no one is interested in making this quick and easy, so we can leave on time. That's the other thing. How can a local airline, named for its country, not leave on time? We were delayed about 20 minutes, waiting on people. Just leave them behind! Stick to schedule!"

Cons: "Slippers and blankets were not provided to all passengers. Toilets got unacceptable by the end of the flight."

Pros: "Easy to board, friendly, good food."
Cons: "It was too hot inside, the air was on but not very high maybe 76-78. Could not sleep because it was so uncomfortably warm"

Pros: "Movie options and food"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Too small legrom."

Pros: "Staff are EXCELLENT"
Cons: "Internet was spotty."

Pros: "Great food, great service and a wonderful experience in business class compared with most of the big European airlines. Will definitely fly again Turkish Airlines!"
Cons: "The business lounge in Istanbul was a great facility, but a little bit of upkeep will be a plus."

Pros: "Loved the service, food and airplane itself."
Cons: "Istanbul airport is large and difficult to manage. Had to walk/run for about 20 minutes to get to my connecting flight."

Cons: "This 13 hours and 5 minutes flight was extremely hot. Regardless of how many times we've asked the flight attendants to make it cooler for us, nothing changed. By the time, we get off my shirt was soaking wet. Imagine flying for so long under these conditions. What an horrible customer service!"

Pros: "Everyone in the crew was friendly and helpful. The flight was long, but seemed shorter because the crew was attentive."
Cons: "My flight was delayed."

Pros: "Very friendly crew, and a great experience overall totally recommend"

Cons: "The things that they can improve upon: - Better tasting, not chewy meatballs - Providing salad dressing - Water absolutely had weird odor - Omelette was not tasty at all, as if it came from an industrial machine"

Cons: "Everything was pretty good."

Pros: "The flight attendants were incredibly kind and attentive"
Cons: "Bathrooms were a mess. Badly need more cleaning throughout flight"

Pros: "Crews attitude, professional behavior"
Cons: "Not enough leg room in economy class"

Pros: "Airplane and entertainment were nice."
Cons: "Flight left an hour late so we missed our connection."

Pros: "Good crew, good food, good entertainment."
Cons: "Very cramped economy seats; no reclining. Rude gate personnel in Istanbul."

Pros: "I like the Airline and I think the food is good, the problem sometimes is when you travel a lot you get the same food :) The crew are always great! I do a lot of connections in Istanbul and we never missed one in about two years flying there at least 4 times a month."
Cons: "During boarding they do not always board the Gold members first and in some cases when they do it is only to go on the bus before the others. I would like the Gold members to go first with either a bus of their own to at least with part of the bus reserved and we are allowed first on the plane."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "My suitcase is dirty and full of grease on the side"

Pros: "Giving the kids a gift"
Cons: "Worker the didn't smile and not helping very well and getting angry when I asked for help or even they didn't know how to serve people. Airline to bad 2 airlines I go with them is very hot inside. Having bad AC. Thanks"

Pros: "Staff,food excellent. Very smooth take off and landing. Excellent pilots. As a Turkish citizen I'm proud of THY.,"
Cons: "Narrow seating area."

Pros: "The food was good for an airline. Crew was nice."
Cons: "It was a long flight in coach."

Pros: "Low prices & generally good service and entertainment"
Cons: "This airline used to be excellent. Now, the prices have been going up and the standards down. Service not as good, food not as tasty, plentiful and varied, crew not as warm and attentive. Instabul airport was the usual chaos, which does not add to the experience for transfers. Also: boarding started late and of course was not done and time and since we lost our slot we were further delayed taking off. That made the transfer time even less and the situation more stressful."

Pros: "Checkin agent was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food options were exhausted by the time service reached my seat; so had to eat whatever is available, which is still good."

Pros: "Comfortable, tasty"
Cons: "The flight was delayed in 40 mins Our entertainment system didn't work"

Cons: "I had two checked baggage a and o my 1 was delivered. I have reported this at the airport and have been following up with their customer service many times but no information is yet provided after days."

Pros: "On time boarding but stayed 20 minutes over time to take off."
Cons: "My flight dates were changed by the airline which made me change many of my plans. My son's seat was broken and Tv didn't work (13 hour flight). Overall uncomfortable seats with very minimum seat recline option. Poor food. Staff was little "cold" and not attentive."

Cons: "Several TVs were not working. While some were repaired the TV for my viewing did not work. Though it was set right it failed raw weal times."

Pros: "The price can't be beat for a quality, national carrier. The next highest price for my series of flights was $600 more and would have taken twice as long. Good food, good alcoholic beverages, great movies, and a nice crew too."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines was delayed over an hour. It seems like slight delays do happen with this airline; however, you do get what you pay for and I can't really complain much over a one hour delay given the ticket price."

Pros: "Movie selection and food was good"
Cons: "The flight departed late and we had to run like psychos to our connecting gate to Athens... We barely made it."

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Very good experience on a nonstop from San Francisco to Istanbul & on to Thessaloniki. Very friendly professional staff. Good food. Charge outlets at the seats. Big choice of free movies. Istanbul airport is very busy. We had delays arriving and leaving for the connection."

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour. This airline is extremely untimely! If you have a short layover, never book with them. Fortunately we had a long layover so it didn't hurt us"

Pros: "Super friendly & helpful staff! Good food and drink, very nice flight! Nice movie selection and good music!"

Pros: "Very kind and helpful crew members Lots of stuff provided: drinks, food, kits etc"

Cons: "No leg space for tall people, alas"

Pros: "The seats were roomy (!!), the foot rest was really nice, the entertainment was impressive. The whole experience was great. They gave us slippers and socks and a pouch with eye cover, ear plugs etc. really top notch."
Cons: "The food wasn't as good as I expected but still better than most airlines. I don't have high expectations for food on planes, I had just heard great things about Turkish airlines food so thought maybe this would be great."

Pros: "Great food and movie selection"

Pros: "We purchased coach tickets and were surprised at how nicely we were treated!! A very classy operation!"

Pros: "Excellent trip! Great pilots, good service, and a complementary hotel room for an over night layover ( must have turkish visa). I would agree with the statement that they are one of the best airlines in Europe."
Cons: "No ability to upgrade seat at airport. I am not sure if upgrading is even possible. There were plenty of open comfort and business class seats that could have made additional money for the airline."

Pros: "The seat was good"
Cons: "The crew was not at all good, I had to call them so many times for one thing, not at all managed well"

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Staff not fluent & clear in English"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Had no idea the Turks ran such a top program that to me was superbly close to my experiences with Emirates."

Pros: "Service courtesy entertainment options price"
Cons: "Seemed like there was even less leg room than usual, blankets not warm enough"

Pros: "As compared to other intl flts I think leg room should be improved. Secondly the tv module system has problems in both leg of flts the system was jammed and would not go to next step. Very limited choice of Indian movies"

Pros: "A paid a fair price for a magical flying metal bird to take me across the world to my final destination."
Cons: "I did not enjoy reading some persons review about their phone dying and how it was Turkish Airlines fault for not providing a USB port to charge it and because of that they were unable to call their family and let them know they were safe. Reading that review was the worst part of my experience. Plus, maybe a 10% off discount next time would be nice."

Pros: "Excellent service at the food"

Pros: "Flight attendants so helpful, warm, and welcoming. Food surprisingly good. Toys for the kids, bassinet - everything so much better than expected. Would DEFINITELY recommend."

Pros: "fabulous in-flight entertainment system. best UI/UX and movie selection I have seen in a while. Thanks!"
Cons: "I did not need to check any bags and had already checked-in online, but was forced to wait in line instead of being able to print my ticket from an automated kiosk. Seriously? It's almost 2016. The lines also moved ridiculously slowly, and to add to my consternation, the "online check in" line was serviced by far fewer desks than the normal check-in line. Shouldn't there be an incentive for checking in online? This experience was STUPID AND FRUSTRATING."

Cons: "My carry on was stolen on the flight. The flight crew didn't do anything to help"

Pros: "Delicious food. Incredible entertainment selection of first-run movies and classics – movies I would've gladly paid to see in the theater. Modern plane. Free drinks and wine."
Cons: "Whining children shouting and running through the aisles. Nonstop screaming literally from beginning of the flight to the end from one loud and unhappy child. It was impossible to sleep as a result. Flight crew did nothing; said nothing to parents. Everyone was aghast. I see other people had the same experience."

Pros: "They kept feeding us! We were not expecting 2 meals 2 snacks and unlimited drinks in economy. We were very impressed and will decently book international with them again."

Cons: "Worst food I've ever had inside an airplane. Pretty bad uncomfortable seats as well."

Pros: "The plane is very nice. One of the best plane configurations. Crew is excellent."
Cons: "Seats can be more comfortable"

Cons: "Was delayed in a connection and missed flight. No offer or help provided to get me and children on another flight without charging me ~$9000 for another flight. Paid out of pocket for another airline. Cannot believe the extortion and lack of service provided!"

Pros: "The airplane was clean. Lots of storage space."
Cons: "The entertainment screens in our row of seats were not working. The crew did find seats we could move to if we wanted to watch movies. Made two phone calls to the airline prior to my scheduled trip to attempt a seat upgrade but they told me I would have to do this at the airport where of course no upgrades were available"

Cons: "No special dish for kids food or atleast wasn't offered on the flight to us"

Pros: "The flight is less than 3 hours, yet they include a sandwich with the flight."

Pros: "The Quietness of the trip. Enough to sleep."
Cons: "There is no possibility for me ti eat. I have a sugerless diet without any aotmeel, rice, corne and other wheat. Just almendraflour is allowed and cooked vegetables and fruit and chicken and fish. I always have huge difficulties in flying intercontinental."

Pros: "Great overall experience oafter some years of absence using other major carriers"
Cons: "All bathroom downstairs, crammed stairs long long waiting , no room to wait for your turn"

Cons: "Food was awful. Looked like something you would find in prison. My second leg did not even have vegan options for me, as I ordered online weeks ago. I was so hungry after almost 14 hours of flying plus a 12-hour layover. I am not impressed with this airline."

Pros: "This was a fantastic flight -- the crew were very friendly and helpful, the legroom was great for "regular" economy class, and the flight was on time. The direct flight was so much nicer with young children than having connections. Would fly again any time."
Cons: "I really can't think of anything to complain about... the touch screen in my daughter's entertainment unit was a bit flaky, but that's about it."

Pros: "I really enjoyed my flight with Lufthansa. My gluten free meals were very good and the service was excellent!"
Cons: "It would be nice to be able to reserve seats ahead of time without charge"

Pros: "Convenient schedule, excellent service, good food, all-around positive experience."

Pros: "a good place e excellent crew"
Cons: "the plane is arrived over time and I less the fly to turin"

Cons: "To be waitlisted till gate openes"

Pros: "the bathrooms - so many and downstairs. smooth flight. plane seat layout - 2-3-2"
Cons: "meals were served at odd time but were good. passenger behind me was upset when my chair was leaned back. an extra charge for seat assignment. 30 minutes on the tarmack before take off"

Pros: "Flight Attendants were Excellent. Friendly, attentive, and caring! Thank You Very Much."
Cons: "Lufthansa changed our seats, splitting up my wife and I, after confirming they were together. Thank you to the Flight Attendant who reseated us together but "you know what" to the person that screwed up the seats in the first place. Also the on-line check in process was extremely poor, maybe "bad" is a better word."

Pros: "Got me to Nuremberg"
Cons: "Delay"

Cons: "Lufthansa does not honor frequent flyer statuses of any of their alliance partners in regards to seat upgrades. Being 6'4", the ability to upgrade to economy plus/premium is important on long-haul flights. Everything else about Lufthansa is excellent, but I will not book with Lufthansa for long flights anymore because of this. I'll stick with United from now on."

Pros: "clean cabin"
Cons: "AC was broken, set on plane for an hour sweating terribly, had to stress to make connecting flight, barely made it. Movie selection did not appeal to me. Seat was super narrow and my seat did not recline fully, pure torture."

Pros: "The new plane entertainment features and the bigger toilet room space... but... seat space SUCKS... I'd rather have a more comfy seat than bigger toilet room space"
Cons: "The person behind me kept pushing my seat back.. guy next to me kept elbowing me. Seat space is way to small, need more room to move. I'm only 130 lbs. can hardly wonder how a bigger person can handle those tiny seat spaces. Also, those seats are so uncomfortable with the way they contour one's back. No support and very very uncomfortable, I had mid back tension pains the entire 12 hour flight."

Pros: "Service was good, the airplane was good also"
Cons: "This time we experienced a strong turbulence. It would be more helpful if the crew gave updates about the situation more often, was really scary. Also, the food was not good at all...."

Cons: "The flight never took off. We had to wait 6 hours in line, and they still couldn't rebook many of us. When I was finally rebooked on a Swiss Air flight, the flight was invalid, Swiss didn't accept it. I was send to various different lines, and they didn't even understand what my problem was. Finally after spending 2 whole days at the San Francisco airport, I could take off with a 30 hour delay. The Swiss Air flight was wonderful."

Pros: "it wasn't much but I did like it...the snack."
Cons: "I didnt like the narrow seats with no legroom."

Pros: "Food choices and service were excellent."
Cons: "I had bulkhead (50A) and that seat gives a little less legroom due to the wall so my feet were often resting against the wall. Plus that seat has the A/V in the armrest which is not allowed to be on during takeoff and landing, meaning I couldn't start a movie until after takeoff and I couldn't watch the flight camera during landing."

Pros: "Food was solid. It was nice to have two meals on the flight. Flight attendants were all great."
Cons: "Outside of mealtimes, ordering drinks throughout the flight was more difficult than other airlines. I'd also like to see more movie options. Boarding lines were sloppy and unorganized."

Pros: "My coach seat on the upper deck was roomy thanks to the window cubbies on the A380. The flght attendants were friendly and very helpful. The A380's upper deck is noticably quieter. I throughly enjoyed flying on the A380. The food was also the best airplane food I've had."

Pros: "- crew was nice - overall flight was smooth"
Cons: "- not too unexpectedly, food was small - bring something warm to wear, as at some point temps can be real cold... - wish the boarding process was slightly more logical and have people with seats in the back of the plane go first"

Pros: "TV service"

Pros: "We loved business class! The service was the best"

Cons: "1 After long stand the line when i want to check in my Luggage i got shocking news According to checkin counter lady said Flight delay more than 2hours and can be 3hours no body knows how long will be delay, she recommended me to go from San Francisco to san jose airport to get another flight. it's time Enough she said , that time about 1pm, i am lucky that i arrived SF airport 3hours in advance so that i could manage to catch up another flight at the san jose airport, i had to go san jose airport from San Francisco by Taxi and the cost was 170usd because driver says over 50mils far a way i need to pay 50% more, i have a alot import meeting in germany, meeting schedule could be mess i was really shocking, how can i get back Taxi fee usd170??? 2. regards to Crew., one Passenger was collecting his handy carry luggage at Cabinet and he forgot to close Cabinet cover after he collected and it was opened that time one flight crew passing by to final check up before landing but don't see that cabinet door open, so one of passenger talk to her to close the Cabinet door, also handy carry luggage after used the passenger should Keep Under the chair for safety but even passenger keept (put) in her beside empty seat, the Crew don't say anything, it was many people keept in next empty seat area. According to rull must keep it under seat, but crew don't say anything I was very very surprised. it's very Dangerous to everybody people may hurt , i was very Scared and nervous. 3. in the dark room passenger can't see or feels that behind them whether crew come or not (passing by or not) Crew passing by and hit passenger but without saying sorry and just go a way. it's impossible... 4. i was standing at Exit door and look at the outside but same time crew came and said to me not friendly and without smile "Excuse me" and i go a way, i saw she crew want to put something inside at dress room. what i want to say the crew could be more nice and smiley face to passenger or could be nice can be wait 5 seconds but was really the way of tone is Racist, this is what i felt, really bad."

Pros: "At a time when airlines are treating a plane like a flying bus, it's heartening to see Lufthansa's attention to detail for its customers both in terms of ontime departure, arrival and inflight hospitality is second to none."

Pros: "Latest movies few included"
Cons: "The space is so small. For 11plus hours my body could not move. I never had knee problem but they were so sore. My feet and body got extremely tight mid way in the flight. This is my first and last flight in your airlines."

Pros: "Everything about the flight was very nice except for the exceptionally tiny and narrow seats."
Cons: "Tiny, narrow seats."

Pros: "I liked how I was taken advantage of, knowing it will never happen again"
Cons: "After having my ticket Inadvertently canceled didn't like the lack of support in purchasing a new ticket through Luftansia's customer service agents that deals with consolidators such as Kayak. In the end I was left not be able to buy a ticket for three days after being quoted a specific price and charged about triple the rate originally quoted it initially quoted I wasted valuable time into my vacation along with an amazing amount of stress ."

Pros: "Lufthansa always has good service and amenities"
Cons: "I believe it is Lufthansa's responsibility to move my seat if I am seated next to someone who is taking up more than half of my seat for an 11 hour flight"

Cons: "Food was lousy. I have not flown L for sometime, but the food was lousy. I don't remember it being this bad previously. They ran out of rice and chicken...and served me beef... The chicken was on the bone, instead of being off the bone...so harder to eat in small space."

Pros: "The crew was great, food options were solid so was entertainment"
Cons: "I purchased online usage and was charged but wasn't able to access online services at all. I asked the crew if they could refund me but they were unable to help me out. So I was charged $25 for a service I was unable to use and unfortunately I was counting on being able to use the online service for work."

Pros: "Everything was ok"
Cons: "Food was very bad"

Pros: "With a long flight, just not enough seat or leg room for coach."

Cons: "The plane was old and dirty, very uncomfortable to say nothing of awfl entertainment"

Cons: "They charged me extra for advanced seat reservation. When I got to the airport the reserved seat was gone and they were offering me another seat that wasn't as good. They said this is normal and were not able to refund the extra money they charged!!!"

Pros: "Not a lot..."
Cons: "flying used to be enjoyable, now with the seats packed like sardines in a can, it just is not pleasant..honestly...I love going to Europe, Asia and overseas in general, but after 35 plus years of watching leg room shrink to none..and the width of the seat large enough to accommodate a 10 year old, flying now overseas is a chore i won't put up with anymore, Airbus is the worst. I'm 5'10" and 180 lbs so it's not like I'm big. Add to this the luggage and other fees, and flying is absolutely miserable for more than 1 hour."

Cons: "Bag was lost"

Pros: "Service & employees Best airline I've ever flown"

Cons: "My booking was from SFO to TUN, but United only allowed me to book my bags to Frankfurt. I have never encountered this situation in my life where a carrier would only send checked bags to the layover destination instead of the final destination for which I paid! Needless to say I had to go through immigration and collect my bags in Frankfurt. The only reason I made my connection was because the next flight was delayed. Absolutely horrible service and response from both United and Lufthansa when I tried to explain the situation in San Francisco. As far as the actual flight, it was ok aside from the fact that United is too cheap to install entertainment systems so you have to bring your own laptop or watch the big screen where there's only 1 predesignated movie showing like they had back in the 90's. United stinks."

Pros: "Very little. The staff is polite but they have no information and really are not empowered they solve any problems"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour taking off due to final checks and luggage. In sprite of the pilot announcing smooth sky’s we had terbulence and seatbelts on for 60% of the flight. And when we arrived the luggage of at least 15 passengers, including mine, did not arrive. After waiting 45 minutes at the carousel for the luggage and another 35 at the priority desk I was informed that the luggage was not coming on the next flight but the next day. They apparently had run out of overnight bags so I had to buy a toothbrush and a t-shirt at the airport to sleep in. Now normally I would pack a carry on with the basic essentials for such a situation but this was a direct fight with 3 follow flights to the same destination..... I have no idea who votes for Air Canada or how many votes it takes to win the awards they keep claiming but there is something wrong..."

Cons: "My dad didn’t get on the plane because the previous one was late"

Pros: "Everything was good, fine, but nothing stands out as exceptional."
Cons: "Personal space seemed a little smaller than on some other airlines."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Meals & steward"

Pros: "There was no entertainment !"
Cons: "Some of the crew were rude no food or drinks No entertainment of any sort for long trips"

Pros: "The attendants were particularly helpful and clearly loved their job. One attendant, Melissa, was joyful and accommodating."
Cons: "The food was eatable but it was airline food."

Cons: "That had to be the most cramped, uncomfortable airplane seat I have ever been in. And the coffee was awful."

Pros: "The crew was amazing - I fly a lot and they were dialed. Very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "It seemed like an older plane, I'm over 6 ft and my knees wedged into the seat in front of me before the person decided to recline their chair. Definitely not comfortable for an 8 hour flight. Two more inches would have changed a lot."

Cons: "No food on a 5 hour international flight!!"

Pros: "Aircraft was clean. Convenient connecting gates. Flight duration."
Cons: "- Meals sold in flight - Extremely poor inflight entertainment - Flight delayed no real explanation provided"

Pros: "Great service from the staff and crew. Comfortable flight in every conceivable aspect!"

Pros: "Everything was great"

Cons: "My bag did not arrive at the same time I did. It was delivered several days later. I had to buy new clothes with my own money while I waited. Horrible experience."

Pros: "Departed on schedule"
Cons: "Very unfriendly flight attendent"

Pros: "The plane was spacious with comfortable seats. Entertainment selections were a highlight. I liked that they offered your buds. Not nearly as bad as United despite some customer service issues."
Cons: "Our tables were dirty so we could not set our drinks and food on them. When we were boarding, one of the crew members was yelling at an older Asian lady. She was in the wrong seat but she obviously did not speak English. She was also of the age where she could have had dementia. He said that she was responsible for holding up the plane and the boarding process. On the return flight, I encountered a very rude boarding agent. Her actions warranted an apology, but I did not receive one. She just would not look at me."

Pros: "Ability to charge my iPhone )"

Cons: "Entertainment system. Spacious seating for economy class."

Pros: "Good leg room even is coach."

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Food and no tv on the seat didn't want to look own the whole time"

Pros: "Crew was nice though not very professional."
Cons: "Airplane quality Seat dimensions Food quality Allowing passengers to sit where they pleased Pay for food- embarrassing"

Pros: "A couple of flight attendants were really really nice. I am diabetic and ran into a bit of a problem, one was so sweet and caring about it and helped me out. I really felt safe with her."
Cons: "Regarding the same diabetic issue, another flight attendant could have cared less that I was in a bit of trouble. I needed to lay down in the flight attendant seats due to my issue and i heard two of the girls complaining about it."

Pros: "Did not like anything about Air Canada. Very unfriendly and Rude staff is not the exception, me and my family have encountered this each time we went on Air Canada( three times)"
Cons: "From the check in desks to the airplane the staff are generally very rude, dis respectful and lazy and unorganized. Not only to my family , we saw them do this to all."

Cons: "Flight departing Toronto to Amsterdam was cancelled without adequate compensation. Flight was supposed to depart at 8:45. Was delayed repeatedly then cancelled at 11pm. Air canada wasn't able to get us a hotel voucher until 1:45 am and hotel check in at 2 am. Complete disruption of travel plans. Customer service at Toronto airport was terrible."

Pros: "The food and entertainment were good."

Pros: "Everything and I have alot if air miles under me.The flight crew was great. The aircraft was great."
Cons: "The food could have Ben a little been a little better."

Pros: "That staff was nice and helpful, they only had food for purchase but it tasted great and wasn't too pricey!"
Cons: "The plane should have been retired a year ago. It was an old airbus. Seating was uncomfortable, the entertainment systems outdated, and the aisles were cramped. Thankfully it was a short flight."

Pros: "Luggage was lost; have not received to date. Very upset, scheduled to attend a wedding tomorrow without clothes or any type of compensation to replace clothing. Vacation has been RUINED!!! Please help!!"
Cons: "Have no clothing other than what was worn on flight"

Cons: "Limited selection in entertainment"

Pros: "People were helpful & friendly"
Cons: "Timing between flights was not enough to make connection. Had to take next available flight."

Pros: "Okay flight, nothing special."
Cons: "Food?"

Pros: "Aircrafts decent legroom, flight on time"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "It was a nice flight up the coast and there were no problems"
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like about the flight."

Cons: "flight delayed 4+ hours yet no text notifications whatsover"

Pros: "I liked the comfort and the service"
Cons: "the long delay in Montreal"

Pros: "Check in and boarding process ok."
Cons: "Had to buy meal on the SFO-Montreal leg, which was at the snack/wrap level. Constraint space seats."

Pros: "It seemed like a quick flight."
Cons: "Better food needed."

Cons: "Bag was given wrong tag # by check in attendant and went to wrong airport. Has been extremely hard to track down"

Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Didn't pick up dinner trays, when they passed out breakfast, one lady didn't bother to hand out the napkin or the bottle of water to people, while the lady going down the other aisle did. Greasy pice of cake and no napkin, and a red eye flight and no water? I saw them on the cart, I guess it was just too much work to hand them out!!!"

Pros: "Left on time, arrived ontime, luggage made it"
Cons: "Despite having checked-in online, entered passport and global/precheck info, and used the kiosk at the airport to verofy passport, etc checking luggage was a huge inefficient mess. I've never seen this at a US airport on a US carrier."

Pros: "We actually arrived alive."
Cons: "We arrived into London so late that we were forced to take a taxi at a huge expense. During the 3 hr delay the only food provided was a small bag of pretzels and water."

Pros: "That we arrived on time"
Cons: "The food was terrible, the service was grumpy, and one of the carts hit my shoe so hard that it tore it."

Cons: "Traveling with 2 adults, a 3 year old and 1 year old, we had to ask to get our seats next to each other's for each flight at the desk. For both our family and other passenger it would make more sense to get that covered beforehand."

Cons: "I had legal rights to, as I tried to explain to the agents. They dismissed and mocked me, until 3 hours later. By that time I had missed my flight."

Pros: "Very nice people, seats large enough"
Cons: "impossible to work on my computer, plug without enough power turn off automatically"

Pros: "Full flight operated professionally and politely. Good range of food and drink for purchase only."

Pros: "I enjoyed the efficiency and friendliness of the crew and the timliness of the flights themselves as well as the boarding process."
Cons: "First flight: My headphones didn't work with the entertainment system and the only other option to watch what was on the tv was to purchase headphones. Also, the movie skeleton was somewhat limited. Also, it was a longer flight but there was no free food option"

Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful."

Cons: "The flight needed canada transit visa and you guys dint even said me. Moreover when I contacted vayama as my bookings were proceeded by them even they dint helped me and then I had to cancel my ticket. I expect you to refund my money because of your fault I could not board the flight and had a horrible experience"

Cons: "As we were ready to start boarding, suddenly the desk employees announced that anyone who had done a self serve or web check in needed to come to the desk with ID. Seemed like at least 75% had done this! Also at the same time they decided to make a point about only 1 hand carry per person and probably 25% of the so called hand carry items ended up being checked in as they were far too big and never should have been allowed in the first place. A good portion of the passenger had 2 hand carry SUITCASES each. This all should have been dealt with during the waiting period - not at the 30 min mark before departure. Flight departed late as a result."

Pros: "Some of the members of the crew were so nice"
Cons: "SFO to Montreal: no complimentary food; not even nuts. I was forced to check in my bag because it wouldn't fit in the tiny sizer."
