The seats are not comfortable but there is a good space for the legs. Food was OK.

Check in agent in Budapest was terribly rude and sent us off to the side to "go call united" because "there was something wrong with our ticket." He wouldn't explain what was wrong so we didn't know what to tell United. After standing in a corner for more than 30 mins, another agent offered to help us. It turns out the only problem was that we hadn't completed our check in online, (which we couldn't because the app would not let us input the correct expiration date for our passports) ...and he just didn't want to have to put our information in himself. We could have missed our flight because of his laziness!!! He was also the only person in the whole airport NOT wearing a mask.

Pros: "The crew were really friendly and made sure we were looked after."
Pros: "the airplane was brand new. l really like it and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The seats were not super comfortable in economy class. There was enough leg-room but the seat itself was not."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and professional. Food was okay."
Cons: "Seats a little wider and little more leg room."
Pros: "Crews was excellent, always refilling water which I can appreciate so much. Keep it up! Loved the United pilot at John Wayne who came out just to say hi, let us know we were in good hands."
Cons: "Had to wait in tarmac forever from Frankfurt to Florence"
Pros: "Crew was professional and competent. Seats were roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "I have a hard time sleeping in any seat that doesn’t fully recline."
Pros: "aaa"
Cons: "zzz"

Pros: "Food and boarding process"
Cons: "Delayed flight barely catch the next one."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Connection very very tight and stressful Had to run to connecting flight and just made it by <1 minute"
Cons: "Entertainment system and touchscreen were not working properly. Seat tray was not horizontal. Salad was not edible (bitter)."
Cons: "Horrible flight"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Frankfurt Airport check lines too long. Only half of security checking stations opened. Hundreds waiting in line and the lines moved too slow. After passing the long lines of security checks, you come to passport checking stations. only 1 out of 3 available stations is manned. Again, lines too long and barely moving. Probably many missed their flights while waiting to go through passport checks. We lost almost 2 hours between security and passport checks. Airport personnel were unfriendly, they did show any care towards the hundreds that are herded like sheep in long lines. They could have eased this backlog of people by manning all their available stations but they did not. Will try not to go through this airport in the future."
Cons: "The gate was changed a few times.. very hard if you have connecting flights"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Gate changed ast minute so we had to walk a long way to get to it with 3 kids. Airplane with no entertainment at all. Also the worst was getting to Beirut without 2 of our bags. We got one of them 1 day later and the second 5 days after. When we got the second bag few of our things were gone."
Pros: "We were kept informed of prigresd"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "The airplane too small the seat too tight"
Cons: "Seat pocket was damaged and couldn’t be used. Food was at best mediocre. Old salad, old bread, no salt with warm meal."
Pros: "Excellent boarding experience. Very good food, overall a very comfortable journey."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food and drinks were far in between. We were on Delta for an international flight and they almost didn’t stop offering stuff to us. I had a another man with broad shoulders like me next to me and had to spend the next 9 hours leaning to the other side to fit. Asked for help to find a different seat even if I had to pay for an upgrade and was told I couldn’t do that after the flight had started"
Pros: "Overall it was a good flight."
Cons: "The dessert could have been better than a Kit Kat chocolate bar."
Pros: "The staff was good to me when I became ill on the flight with a migraine."
Cons: "When I paid for my seat in advance it said I had an exit row, but when I got on the flight it was not. The food was also horrible."
Cons: "As I checked in for the flight around 10 am on Saturday my ck in was "finished" because our pass ports were due to expire in April. We were not allowed to board our flight and the passport office is closed until Tuesday. As a result we lost $700 dollars to the hotel booked and Lufthansa may not reimburse us for the flights which were over $2000. Absolutely horrible service, no help. Negligent in informing us rapier when i chose seats for the flight. The flight was also delayed 2 and a half hours. We now have no vacation for which we paid $3000."
Pros: "Your crew is amazing."
Cons: "Chaos at the gate, TV displays facing the side wall instead of the waiting area, we couldn’t see anything. Need more organization in line. Also, why there is no charger on board for cell phones? No TV entertainment or music or anything. It was clearly lacking the sophistication and class of Lufthansa."
Pros: "New aircraft, clean, comfortable"
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "Flight went smoothly boarding was a little delayed."
Cons: "Getting to gate 10 minutes after boarding time and no one had boarded yet."
Pros: "Great crew, smooth boarding. The dinner was fine, salmon on rice, salad, cheese and desert, of good quality when compared to typical airline food. The breakfast was ok, fruit, muffin and ok cereal bar, too carb-heavy though. The entertainment offered my options. I particularely enjoyed the "Deep-Sleep" relaxation audios which indeed helped me to get some shut-eye during the overnight flight that left the East Coast late afternoon."
Cons: "The comfort in the economy class is mediocre at best. We had more space on the inner-German connection, see next review, than the international flight. The beverage service was skimpy. Flight arrived Dusseldorf on time and then spend 20 minutes on the ground, waiting for a gate, resulting in a scramble to reach our connection."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. Good crew member little little bit uptight but expected. Efficient and on time"
Cons: "Need to upgrade mefia hardware to 21st century."
Pros: "great flight attendants, decent food, on-time arrival. all good."
Cons: "Walk between connecting flights in Munich was very long (25 minutes) and when we got to the gate for the flight to EWR, there was a very long, and very slow-moving line with only one attendant checking boarding passes for 6 gates. We arrived at the gate and were among the last passengers to board. A last minute additional attendant that was brought on, helped to make the line move a bit faster, but this under-staffed checkpoint added unnecessary stress to our long travel day."
Pros: "Everything! The service of the flight attendants, in full ugh entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was great. I would say that I didn't like the automation and self serve check in at Munich Airport not because it wasn't easy or efficient, but because I love human interactions. I know this is the way society is tending, towards automation, but I don't love it. I prefer to speak to a real person. Thank you for reading."
Pros: "You can't beat the German's at efficiency. Awesome!"
Cons: "Houston isn't their hub and I have to put up with United."
Pros: "Announcements made about delay"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Seat wasn't the best in premium economy. Quite hard with little support."
Pros: "Business class was comfortable."
Cons: "Baggage was lost for 3 days. Very poor customer service. Employees have a lot of attitude. Will NOT fly again."
Pros: "Crew was friendly both in flight and check in area."
Cons: "My entertainment screen wasn't working at all from Washington DC to Munich! Also, I searched Lufthansa's website to order "Halal Food" but there was no option for it! I talked to one of the crew about it, she said that I needed to call to order in advance, but she was nice enough to offer vegetarian food as a substitute which was okay."
Pros: "I was upgraded to economy plus"
Cons: "The flight was delayed from Frankfurt"
Pros: "Crew was great. Food was good."
Pros: "I love lufthansa"
Cons: "We waited 1 hour inside the plane for a tore change. That should have been done before take off time."
Cons: "Flight canceled"
Cons: "The delay after boarding in Lisbon"
Pros: "Loved the little sandwiches!"
Cons: "The check-in process in Paris was frustrating and slow. The boarding process was also a bit chaotic."
Pros: "Crew was more understanding. Placed us to row 18...emergency exit."
Cons: "Checked online from row 21 to 6. Got a new ticket whilst boarding to 25: last row. Explanation...otherwise the plane was not able to go in the air...absolute bullshit. With my weight and of my fellow members better to let us in the front.. Row 6 was given to a miles & more client..."
Pros: "The staff on board had the same view on the "comfort" on board and told us, that even her husband tries to avoid Lufthansa if possible."
Cons: "Everything on board the economy class is on Ryanair level. It is nearly not possible for me (1,89 meters) to have a comfortable flight in these seats. We will try to avoid Lufthansa as often as possible in the future (I`ve had a senator level in earlier times and things changed massively!)"
Pros: "Nothing, really nothing"
Cons: "Really never had less room in a seat!!!"
Cons: "First leg of our flight was delayed, second flight departed before we landed."
Cons: "11 hours of crying babies was too much. The practice of placing 4 cribs together on the bulkhead encouraged one baby to set the others off screaming. The toddler siblings then started fussing, the parents were then jumping up and down, jostling the other passengers, it was a nightmare! Hated every minute of it."

Both airports totally understaffed. Awful experience.

Pros: "Pumpkin soup instead of a heavy entree was welcome and tasty. Breakfast yogurt portion was generous, the granola less so. Accompaniments were good. Butter was not ice cold, thank goodness."
Cons: "Inbelievably chaotic boarding process for Kili to Dar leg. No boarding lanes so had to fight through the crowd. Was able to observe cleaning process at Dar stop, which was cursory and am sure there was no cleaning of seats of those who boarded at Kili."
Pros: "Services is good ."
Cons: "Food can be better"
Pros: "Muslim food"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Appropriate and efficiently served snack."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarkation were slow."
Pros: "Staff were professional and polite."
Cons: "Despite zone boarding, boarding and disembarkation were very slow. Passengers like me with flight connections were very anxious regarding missing these."
Cons: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"
Cons: "The plane is so old..,"
Cons: "The KLM crew are always great serving and treating you. Well above many other airlines."
Pros: "Very professional"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."
Cons: "Late departure. Rush to connect."
Cons: "There was no wifi on flight"
Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, friendly crew. Crew were conscious of recycling which I like a lot as there is so much waste on flight. Anything we can do to reduce waste is very welcome."
Cons: "Food wasn't very appetizing, pasta didn't have much flavor and I don't eat red meat so the other choice wasn't an option for me."
Pros: "quick/efficient boarding - good staff - good food - easy flight !"
Cons: "the connecting times for klm seem to be very close - if your running late to start - you may not make your next one -"
Pros: "well mannered and attentive crew - good supply of complimentary food/drink - good over all comfort"
Cons: "boarding was running very far behind - considering this is mainly a hub operations carrier - resulted in several passengers missing their connecting flights -"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."
Pros: "Everything was good except for the entertainment consul for one of our seats."
Cons: "One of our entertainment consuls had to be rebooted 4 times and still didn’t work. We gave up asking."
Cons: "Larger meals."
Cons: "No reading light in my seat..."
Pros: "Very personable staff. Food acceptable for airline fare. Ticket price was outstanding."
Cons: "Paid for extra legroom, but very narrow seats not comfortable. Very difficult to sleep. Old plane--could not hear movies and unclear screen. Music sounded OK and choice was good."
Pros: "The constant smile conferred by flight attendants through the entire flight."
Cons: "The boarding was a bit disorderly. Lanes for zones 3 and 4 were not clearly indicated."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, landing at vce took an additional 10 minutes due to no one at the jet way. Luggage service was very slow"
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Flight crew very nice"
Cons: "Paid $70 for seat with more leg room and was the exit role to main entrance. No overhead space for carry on: broken food tray holder. People stepping on my feet. And gather in your space waiting for bathrooms. Window seat had no room for feet because of closed door"
Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."

Cons: "That it didn’t happen."
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."

Pros: "Flight was delayed for 15 min resulting in passengers rushing to make their connecting flights.but staff kept passengers informed."
Cons: "Flight departing late."
Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk.

Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Pros: "Plane service"
Cons: "1h30min delay at airport"
Pros: "KLM food and service are great"

It was all wonderful!!

This flight was a bit of a let down compared to our departing flight. The food was pretty bad, I couldn't even cut the meat. But the thing that made this less enjoyable was the terrible check-in process. We waited over 70 minutes to check in for Business class. Numerous people almost missed their flight, which made the line even longer. I've never waiting in a standard line that long to check-in, so to experience it for Business class was disappointing at best. Also, the flight attendants weren't as friendly as the ones on our flight to London. One of them with dark hair was great, but the other 2 were grumpy and seemed irritable most of the flight. The experience was quite different from our flight from SEA to LHR, so it was a bummer to end the trip on a mediocre note--especially with the cost of these tickets.

Awesome!

Cons: "I didn't like putting two family on different seats far from each other"
Cons: "Clean up the planes better"
Pros: "Flight as such was good and smooth"
Cons: "Better food, but nowadays unless you fly on business or first you are doomed and cramped beyond belief, any improvement comes at a price"
Pros: "Was on time! Not croweded!"
Pros: "it was on time"
Cons: "it was a poor food choice again."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All was well. Long bus ride to the planr"
Pros: "Had the head rests that help gold you head when you try to sleep and they didnt speak on the overhead audio so that was awesome"
Cons: "Just long flight in general."
Pros: "Customer service and efficiency"
Cons: "The delay because of a software glitch"
Pros: "Very nice staff. Probably one of the best flights"
Cons: "They have no charging points for the phone"
Pros: "Food was all right because the flight didn't depart from Finland and catering was from a non-Finnish supplier. Hurrah!"
Cons: "Stewardesses announced that only chicken is available, regardless of any special meal requests (vegetarian etc..). Eventually special meals were located, but not before passengers specifically demanding for them. WTF. Finnair generously pours you a half an glass of wine with meal, for anything more you have to pay for. Supposedly you can buy snacks with money, but there were no menus or pricelists to be found in the seat pockets. Touchscreen functions were barely working on my entertainment screen, the remote control didn't work altogether. WIFI didn't work at all."
Pros: "Nice flight"
Pros: "The plane was good, the flight time was nice, just 9.5 hours."
Cons: "The boarding was kind of chaotic, but the crew was kind. The plane seemed comfortable but the seats sit too far back, so when the person in front of me sat his seat back, his head was almost in my lap. It made it hard for me to move or read or do anything. The food was super bland and the drink options were pretty limited. The entertainment selection was much more limited than most flights."
Pros: "The stewardess was really sweet and funny! She was very accomodating even though there was high stress because the flight was late."
Cons: "The flight was 30 minutes late, which made it really hard on a few passengers, myself not included, who had transfers."
Pros: "Entertainment options were fine. Crew was courteous. Boarding was fast. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Economy seats were more cramped than other international economy flights I have been on. My knees were against the seat in front of me the entire 9-hour flight. There were supposed to be 2 options for meal, but by the time I was served there was only one remaining. The meal itself was passing."
Cons: "Sellling snacks during the flight (to a captive clientele) makes the process noticibly less pleasant than in the days when Finnair (generously) provided snacks to everyone."
Cons: "Btw you have cancelled my flight!!!!!!!! And sent me just an email."
Pros: "They gave us a warm cloth to wash our hands and face at the beginning of the flight. There was a bottle of water there too. We were constantly offered various drinks, especially water. The staff was extremely friendly and each of the flight attendants spoke about 4 languages."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't the best I've seen as of late. It's not a big deal, but it would be nice if they updated it!"
Pros: "Crew was proffessional"
Cons: "The crew did not use air freshener and some passenger smell really bad."
Pros: "Good flight--and a PERFECT super-smooth landing."
Cons: "We paid for economy comfort and signed up for the 2x2 seats. Instead we received the 2 seats in the middle of 4. we were more than upset, there is no way we would every request the 2 worst seats in that area and given my husband is 6'6' Did not make for a happy experience."
Pros: "The seat back video screen"
Cons: "not enough room...to tight. I'm a smaller person and it was too cramped. The food was inedible."
Pros: "Comfort?: had a fat neighbor whose elbow was in my robs"
Pros: "I got to my destination, eventually."
Cons: "Cutting corners and cheap. The personnel isn't helpful, they basically don't care about you, typical nordic behaviour. Flights were delayed. Upgrade to business was not worth. Hidden costs. Overall a bad experience."
Pros: "the flight wasn't full and I had the front row"
Cons: "i had the front row on an airplane but there was no first class:("
Cons: "Late arrival caused late departure for 1 hour."
Pros: "The cabin was very clean and the flight was smooth dispite heavy crosswinds on approach."
Cons: "The boarding was awfully slow, and the flight departed nearly half an hour late. The cabin crew offered free water and coffee, once. Even then I had to ask the flight attendant, they did not ask me. No entertainment on the flight, magazines were rather pricy so I read a book and caught up with some sleep."
Cons: "Food and drinks overpriced."
Pros: "Professionalism, punctual, friendly service"
Cons: "You pay for your food just like you do on American Domestic airlines. However they offered coffee and their special Finnair grape juice."
Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "Our luggage never made it to Rome, our final destination. So now we have no change of clothes - for the next 2-3 DAYS."
Pros: "The crew did an excellent job definitely went beyond good service, I enjoyed the food and they came often offering drinks. It was probabky my first long flight I wasn't thirsty at all. Overall I was very happy with my trip hope thank you!"
Cons: "I got slightly cold at one point and wished the lights were I little lower but I understand why the weren't."
Pros: "Shortness of flight, very pleasant cabin attendant and fellow passenger. Flight on time and smooth."
Cons: "Neither of my two checked in pieces of baggage did not arrive, causing major anxiety, hardship and hassle after a long trip."
Pros: "None of it."
Cons: "Not getting aisle seat, unpleasant passengers sitting next to me (making faces when I wanted to go to the lavatory from the window seat), group of noisy, drunk and rude young women behind.."
Pros: "I most liked milk lactose low for my coffee . I can't criticize about food because I was offered only beverage this time with only an hour flight. Hehe ."
Cons: "Nothing made me uncomfortable except for the concern about stealers in most of Europe . I didn't experience it yet but tons of times I've heard about stories of tourists ."
Pros: "The service were very good. Just wish the food better selection."
Cons: "The leg room were tight."
Pros: "great"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Flight was 2 hours late taking off. Completely ruined plans we had made for our first day in London"
Pros: "Power in every seat. Great headphones. Solid in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "The service was remarkable. Everyone was very attentive and friendly which is exactly what you would want for a long flight. The crew came around frequently to provide beverages and left you alone to sleep."
Cons: "The boarding process was a bit hectic. The flight was full which I completely understand. After everyone was settled in the plane it took another 25 minutes to leave the runway."
Pros: "courteous and helpful crew, easy calm and efficient boarding process, with a announcer who spoke CLEARLY, slowly and loud enough to hear, more comfortable plane than the AA plane I took to get to Paris."
Cons: "In flight entertainment really inferior to other airlines, food mediocre, but adequate. But good service is paramount and your crew was good despite many challenging customers."
Pros: "The crew members were very pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "The food was easily the worst I've ever had on an international flight and entertainment was virtually non-existent as the view from my "premium" bulkhead seat was obstructed by the overhead storage. This American Airways aircraft is in serious need of updating if it is to continue to be used as international transportation."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Ancient aircraft."
Pros: "Finnair floor crew very polite & knowledgeable"
Cons: "Plane was extremely old, no entertainment nothing was working, EuroAtlantic Airways crew showed how very inexperienced they were when they had to "handle" frustrated passengers"
Cons: "No individual air controls for each seat"
Pros: "The configuration of the seats are really awkward. Seems very interesting at a glance, but not so nice when you have to sit in it for 10 hours. The business class seats are very narrow. I'm pretty petite so it was okay for me, but I think an average or bigger than average person would have a hard time turning at all while the seat is in lie flat position. I had a window seat which gives you more privacy as long as you have the divider up between you and the passenger next to you. You are really arm length away from each other though. And! You can't have the divider down the entire time because they serve your meals by passing it over to you across your neighbor through the divider. The divider is also required to be down during taxi, take off and landing. So, I'd imagine it to be very awkward if you're sitting next to a total stranger. You also have to straddle over someone's legs if you want to get out of your seat to the bathroom if you have window seats."
Cons: "Nothing was dairy free, staff did not even have access to ingredients so I could check myself."

As an one world member they should treat every airline on same way. No transit visa of DXB but if u traveling from Emirates Airline you will get a transit visa.

The screens behind the seats were wonderful entertainment for a 15 hour flight. I was even able to put together a quick playlist to sleep to that helped drown out a crying baby.

Cons: "Staff at check in counter was rude."
Pros: "The crew was nice and courteous. The flight went smoothly. The bathrooms were easily accessible."
Cons: "They barely offered water on the 11-12 hour flights. The crew was not around other than to hand out meals during the first and last few hours."
Cons: "Just had issues with bathrooms not being clean. Ran out of soap in 2 bathrooms"
Pros: "crew was ok. seats were very tight. climate was hot inside the plane for the whole trip. no entertainment the screens were not working. poor food. and finally we had to go in a bus not a direct gate.. very bad experiance"
Cons: "everything!"
Pros: "Every thing is good"
Cons: "It’s good"
Cons: "I think the food that I had it is not for human"
Pros: "Crew was excellent and so was the comfortable seating."
Cons: "The audio selection was extremely unique, well strange to say the least."
Cons: "The Royal Jordanian crew gave us a comfortable, enjoyable flight. There is no in-flight entertainment, so take your own or plan to read or sleep."
Pros: "Crowded people around even the crew speaking loud over several rows."
Cons: "Four hours flight with only a little snack, plane was not cleaned up ( pillow and plaid from before upon our seats )"
Pros: "The ticket is for anther destination and I purchase another ticket hi rate pleas sent me my money back"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Avoid flight delays in the future and respect the flight schedule"
Pros: "The crew and the aircraft"
Cons: "More food and more toilets for the economy class"
Cons: "Keep it up"
Pros: "Great crew, very comfortable plane. Everything was on time."
Cons: "The vegetarian option was not vegetarian as it contained fish. O'Hare was under construction and signage from the domestic terminal to international terminal was poor."
Pros: "The flight was great. The crew was wonderful as we were traveling with a wheelchair. I will definitely fly Royal Jordanian again."
Pros: "Crew was helpful"
Cons: "Flight delayed over 1 hour, plane change so my paid seat was no more, screen does not work"
Cons: "Entertainment (i couldn't watch anything because my screen wasn't working"
Pros: "Professional flight attendants, kept a good schedule of offering refreshments and meals. Such a difficult task to be attentive to a passenger list that probably spoke more than 10 languages. Polite and patient throughout."
Cons: "my bag was held in amman. when I was going through customs and my bag didn't appear, I approached a team member who already had my name on a list of people whose bags were delayed.. Would have saved me some time if they called the names of the passengers with delayed bags so we wouldn't be waiting for the bags to appear. I don't know if this is an issue specific to the flight crew or to the airline in general or to the airport but it did cause some grief on my end."
Cons: "They did not offer snacks nor drinks in between the first meal and the last meal ,which was a duration of 8 hours in between."
Pros: "I upgraded my flight to business class and I enjoyed it."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Evry thing Time keeping Food Survice"
Cons: "No internet"
Pros: "Food ,service, clean"
Cons: "I missed my flight"
Pros: "The fact it was a direct flight, for the price of round trip can't really complain but for any cost above what we purchased our tickets would have been extremely disappointed."
Cons: "Small seats no room to even move, food was awful and service on plane was not so friendly nor accommodating."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice."
Cons: "Neither of my bags arrived with the flight. One bag came a day and a half later. The other bag came three days later. A little bit of inconvenience, especially since they wouldn't deliver my bags. I had to go back to the airport twice to pick up my bags that they lost."
Cons: "Food is really bad .."
Pros: "The staff were nice and friendly and the plane was clean."
Cons: "There were weird issues. Although the plane was fairly new all three toilet seat lids would not stay upright meaning you had to hold them, which was creepy! There were no paper towels in the bathroom--only tissues. The food was poor and portions small even by airline standards. About 25 of us waited one hour for our bags to arrive."
Cons: "I pre ordered a kosher meal. It was said to me that someone miscalculated and there were not enough kosher meals. I was left hungry and starved on such a long flight."
Pros: "l did not get any of 12 bags that I put in the airplane."
Pros: "The flight was on time and arrived early"
Cons: "The plane is old. Even though I was flying business but they need to renew their short and medium range aircrafts"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Overall, food, appearance, cleanness of the flight and the toilet, no entertainment, comfort, size of the cabin and the seats, communication from the cabin crew and delay without apologizing or telling us the passengers what was the issue, it was one of the poorest flight I have ever used."
Pros: "The plane was nice and clean."
Pros: "I don't like anything about Royal Jordanian crew , management totaly an honest and corrupt people"
Cons: "They lost my bag. Apparently it was never loaded on the plane in New York."
Cons: "The delays"
Pros: "It was a very quick flight!"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew. Nice to have a meal on a short flight."
Pros: "Calling out rows for boarding was extremely helpful and organized!"
Pros: "Good"
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "Very early boarding and push back."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Second time they have split our seats as we were traveling together with infant, one seat in the front and one seat on the rear. This wasn't a full flight and half of the aircraft seats were empty."
Pros: "We got delayed 40 hours and it's not our fault!"
Cons: "Worst customer service ever. Qatar airways doesn't care about the travelers"
Cons: "For no reason the my flight was canceled I was lucky to check my email before arriving to Airport to manage new booking through other website , the massage I got is address error where I'm sure it was a corrwct address for my credit card"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They charged me extra 125$ at the jordanian Airport to allow me to stay at the airport hotel."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Cabin was very warm and the arm rest was missing the top leather piece. Plane seemed very old and worn out."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding process, nice person at check-in counter"
Cons: "I used the restroom in the plane before takeoff and the it was absolutely filthy. It was clear it did not receive any attention between flights. I was sitting in the emergency exit row and, during takeoff, the plane made a horrible, howling/whining noise that I've never heard before. Everyone was looking around and fearful. I fly often and this was the kind of noise when you wonder "is this where it all ends?" Not sure if it was the engine just outside or the emergency exit not being fully sealed but it was the first time in a long time that I've been fearful on a plane."
