Cons: "Didn’t even take off!"

Cons: "Good service and better than average let room and overall seat confirm, which is a big plus on long haul flights. Will definitely choose to fly Qatar again."

Pros: "Crew was great, but food I like more like Emirates."
Cons: "No headphones and was not possible to watch movie."

Pros: "As always crew magnificent"

Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."

Cons: "Every thing is good"

Cons: "Qatar airport duplicTe security check"

Pros: "qatar airways is able to accommodate my low sodium diet"
Cons: "headphone for entertainment did not work"

Cons: "Lots of noisy babies / young children"

Pros: "The crews are awesome"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Staff, service,"
Cons: "Legroom, seat comfort, very long flight"

Cons: "Unable to reserve any seats so ended up with the family split all over the plane"

Pros: "Aircraft was very nice and comfortable. Flight crew as friendly."

Pros: "I got free internet on this flight: sponsored by Ooredoo. You can get 8MB for free! Breakfast was good quantity"
Cons: "Entertainment Oryx One, lunch quantity aswell. FPML had one tray, VJML and AVML had the same packed wrap."

Pros: "Stewards and Stewardess were very prompt and always had a smile!"

Pros: "The crew was awesome had the most caring crew anything you need thier there to make us happy I’m absolutely happy"
Cons: "I dislike the economic class on a 19 hour journey to Doha to Dallas Texas I felt so tight and annoyed with people next to me when asking to go to the bathroom that’s my mistake next time I surely will go on bussiness class other then that everything was great."

Pros: "Staff was reasonable"
Cons: "Little to no leg room on a 15 hour flight while travel with kids was an extremely difficult/painful experience. International airlines have to stop squashing people in the economy class. That is insane."

Pros: "Good food, overall good service"

Cons: "I didn't like that my original return flight selection was changed one month after confirming. The new flight details which were automatically chosen for me had me coming back home a full day later. This forced me to have to select a new return flight with an 8 hour layover."

Pros: "Crew, service, price"
Cons: "Seats are small"

Cons: "The gentleman next to me had broad shoulders, so I spent most of the flight with my body a bit twisted, and eating without being able to move my right arm normally was undesirable. The cabin was kept a bit warm throughout the flight. We had a long wait (30 - 45 minutes after leaving the gate) before takeoff."

Cons: "I am a very experienced traveller. I always book an isle seat, especially for long flights (this was 12 hrs.), so that I can get up and stretch my legs etc. The couple sitting beside me were upset that I did not take the window seat. When it came time to sleep, the wife stretched out over her husbands legs, who was sitting beside me. This meant her feet were coming on top of my legs, and her legs were forcing her husbands legs into my space, touching my leg - I had to put a pillow between my leg and his leg. I asked the Qatar hostess if she could please ask the couple to change their positions, so that my seating space was respected, resulting in no body touching. The hostess replied that she was not permitted to ask the couple to change their positions and be more respectful. Fortunately there was another unreserved isle seat and I was able to move. Due to the fact that airplanes have become cultural melting pots, thousands of feet in the air, I think it would be peacefully beneficial too all, if a very discreet announcement could be made at the beginning of each flight regrading seating etiquette, respectfulness towards others etc. this could also be printed in the flight magazine. Thanks in advance."

Pros: "Good food. Great staff and service"
Cons: "I wish there was more seating room and unusually long waiting time for toilets."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly. On the flight, snacks and drinks were bright by every hour or so and the meals were plenty of food and tasted good. I was given a bag with eye cover, earplugs, socks, face wipes and ear phones. Entertainment was good as well. Qatar is an amazing airline. Wish we had something like this in the States!"

Pros: "the flight was empty and lots of room to get comfortable snacks and food were good boarding was easy"

Pros: "Onboard crew pleasant and service efficient as always. Seats more comfortable than other airlines but aisles so narrow EVERYONE bumped me going by for 15 hours."
Cons: "Ground crews remain the downfall of this airline. Long line in Doha to re-clear security on international connection FROM USA! Fastidiously weighing and forcing mutiple repacks of carry-on bags even though well under total limit of checked & carry. (Doha agent told me dfferent rules appied for carrry on 2nd plane even though I asked specifically frm original agent who checked me thru to final dest--insisted I check main carry on even though there turned out to be plenty of overhead room on board). Poor coordination of checkin lines, security lanes, and flow of people -- all fixable with a little forethought, engineering, and better utilization of circulation space -- and much clearer communication!"

Pros: "It was much better flight then JFK-Doha, crew was fast and efficient."
Cons: "Dirty washrooms."

Cons: "both flights had 2 hours delay... also lugages cames with next flight."

Pros: "Like your six seats in a business class row compared to Emirates, Air India and very awkward seats of Etihad. Qatar business class staff also tad better than others."

Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."

Pros: "The business cabin and the customer service was superb."
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"

Pros: "I liked the food, the crew, and the team at the airport was nice and professional."

Cons: "Luggage items are missing."

Cons: "Not that many choice in movies"

Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable as I didn't want to sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good. The member of flight crew, a Latvian lady, who looked after me onboard was a real star, very efficient but still had time to chat."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "This flight had one of the best selections of movies I've seen on a flight.....a damn good thing given the 15-hr duration of the flight. I had so many screaming babies around me that the flight attendants helped me to move to another part of the plane. They were incredibly sympathetic and accommodating. Airlines from the USA could learn a thing or two from Qatar Airlines."
Cons: "Small seats (I'm fat, so this is my problem really)."

Cons: "On O-Hare Airport, Qatar Air Line's staff is very rod, I never recommend to anyone. Now if anyone ask from me then i refuse to buy Qatar Aiway ticket then they buy Emirate or other air line tickets"

Pros: "The price for the flight was very excellent. The entertainment was very good with the movie selections."
Cons: "In Bangkok, I've already checked in on line and all I have to do was drop off my bag and get a boarding pass. There was one to two person doing the checked in and it took about 40 minutes to get done, unacceptable. The lines for non on line check in went faster then the on-line and they have four times more people that was in the on-line checked in. In flight, the seat felt liked you're sitting on a rock after a couple of hours. I'm an aircraft mechanic who used to be a flyer with 7,000 flying hours."

Pros: "Generally ok but not as good as other Middle East carriers"
Cons: "The leg room on this flight felt less generous than other carrier and the food was poor almost inedible. The aircraft (777) seemed much noiser than other aircraft I have flown on and the noise from the toilet flush could be heard 10 rows away"

Pros: "Seats are very much smaller in economy. Hotel accommodation was no where close to good in comparison to Emirates or Thai."
Cons: "ANAZING flight staff! Friendly and courteous!!!! Loved them on all four flights!!!!"

Pros: "Excellent Cabin Crews, Flights on time"
Cons: "Food is mediocre at best, comfort on 787 is terrible."

Pros: "Great service by the flight crew! Friendly and competent. Food is decent but not quite up to Emirates. Kudos to QA for investing in the A-350. Quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "The headphone jack on my entertainment system was defective."

Cons: "The staff was very supportive"

Pros: "The aircraft was perfect it self. The crew were nice"
Cons: "They changed my chiled seat twice and they couldnt find a place for both of us togetger."

Pros: "I have been in qatar airways many a times and they have done an excellent job connecting Kathmandu to outside world. The experience is usually very nice-the plane is in good condition, the fly crew are always smiling and helping, the food and entertainment are great."
Cons: "May be this is one time thing, but the ground crew were terrible, particularly the man who was on the check-in counter. Spoke with a robotic tone and was very rude. Spoke as if he owned the plane and we were asking for a free ride. Very disappointing start to a long journey."

Pros: "Food, service and hospitality all top class. They made my long trip home a breeze!"

"Got me from A to B. I like Alaska Air, that’s why so fly them."

Pros: "Nothing because there was no social distancing. I did not think that airlines were allowed to completely fill flights and I had no choice once I was boarded."
Cons: "Please observe social distancing and DO NOT book completely full flights where seats can’t be left open. Irresponsible and stupid."

Pros: "The staff at both airports were amazing. (SNA/SFO) From ease of arrival at check in by Alaska Airlines staff to the airport security at SFO providing assistance to help me guide my ride to pick me up the best description of where I was to ease pick up. That’s not to mention the Alaska staff that allowed me to move my flight up to accommodate my schedule or the excellent staff at the gate and on the plane. Very nice experience!"

Pros: "Very nice crew :)"

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "Very punctual."

Pros: "Great entertainment Fun atmosphere"

Cons: "Flight was delayed."

Cons: "1. Waiting for 2 hours between flights. 2. Big issue: The loading process used by Alaska is horrendous."

Pros: "Leg room was better than expected"

Pros: "Pilot was congenial and spoke to cabin in friendly way. Made travellers feel we were in good hands."
Cons: "When making seating arrangements to persons needing a wheelchair to plane, I think consideration should be made to place passenger closer to restroom. Hard to walk to plane should be a clue it will be difficult to walk to restroom in airborne plane. Just saying....."

Pros: "Great staff, lots of leg room"
Cons: "Had to deboard the airline for 2 1/2 hrs due to issues with Seattles air traffic control connection"

Pros: "Great flight attendant He was so so nice and funny making the flight more enjoyable"
Cons: "None I liked it a lot"

Pros: "Todo menos el servicio de internet"
Cons: "Que se paga para tener acceso a internet y te das cuenta que al cruzar la frontera ya no puedes tener acceso,y después te das cuenta que el servicio es solo para Estados Unidos."

Pros: "First time flying from SNA/OC. Accessibility of terminals was great, close by parking and only 2$/hour. Almost no wait for check in and security, very fast and convenient. Boarding was uncomplicated and there was enough space for carry on items. Loved that they offer wifi throughout the flight and free messaging (in case you don't need full internet access). Will definitely consider flying with Alaska Airlines again!"

Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "SeaTac was fabulous with my wheelchair. Thanks you"

Cons: "Flight delay...NOT Alaska Airlines fault."

Pros: "They let us move and get more comfortable, there was hardly anyone on the flight."
Cons: "Seats are tiny."

Pros: "Great service and friendly staff"

Pros: "The staff in the airport as well as on the plane were friendly and provided prompt service. Flight was quick with arrival estimates being on the over rather the under, nice little surprise."
Cons: "Actually boarding the plane and getting off took a little longer than I liked, even for a medium sized plane. Might have been more efficient had people gotten to all their seats first and then put luggage away."

Pros: "Easy flight in and out"

Pros: "The overall process was excellent as was the care and attention given to the passengers by the flight attendants. The flights there and back were on time and even a little early. I will continue to fly with Alaska Air Lines."
Cons: "I would have liked a video screen with movie options for a 2 1/2 hour flight, but I recognize I don't understand all of the considerations around that."

Pros: "Great level of service."

Pros: "Staff was very friendly & the boarding process was quick."

Pros: "Crew was excellent - friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats in economy too cramped - I paid extra for next seat up from basic economy which covered our baggage but, for some reason, not seats with more leg room."

Pros: "Being on time"
Cons: "Nothing you guys did great thank you so much."

Pros: "Although there were delays they kept us informed on a regular basis as to what to expect and seemed genuinely apologetic for any inconveniences. Boarding and deplaning were smooth and efficient. I really appreciated that there was no charge for checking a bag. I am certain that contributes to the ease of everyone getting on and off the plane. Our bags arrived at baggage claim about the same time we got there. I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again."

Pros: "Crew was great flight was comfortable however checking in bags and printing boarding pass was slow and also very unorganized"
Cons: "Checking in bags and printing boarding passes were long unorganized lines of people"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Screens have poor color quality Seat too small Legroom cut into by electronics box Row 45 next to bathroom and no windows"

Pros: "Comfortable seat. Great crew!"

Pros: "Crew were great! Neck cushions on chair aren’t adjustable and not comfortable."

Pros: "crew / cabin staff always seem very friendly and genuine and a willingness to help"

Pros: "The crew were very attentive, they tried hard to help me with comfort, drinks etc. I didnt have food as it was so good in the Virgin Clubhouse!"
Cons: "The bed! When you flip it flat its rock hard, and the matress they provide is useless! Need foam matress to really make it more comfotable. If the seat reclined another few inches i wouldnt bother flipping it."

Cons: "Poor communication about the reasons for our 4 hour delay. Also, we purchased Economy X, which should have given us priority boarding, but we were told we had to stand in the general admission queue."

Pros: "My flight was canceled and Virgin Atlantic gave us a free room in the hotel Ramada. My next flight was at 18:55 and I asked Virgin Atlantic agent am I allowed to stay in the room until time for my flight comes, he confirmed yes and gave me breakfast, lunch, and dinner voucher. However, next day around 12 I got call from Front Desk that I have to leave my room right away because it's time to chack out and If I want to stay longer I have to pay. I called Virgin Atlantic agancy again and the agent run my information and said to me I can stayin the room longer. After that I called front desk to confirm that but they said they didn't hear anything from Virgin Atlantic and I have to leave the room by 1pm. All of this was really unpleasant!"
Cons: "I didn't like anything. I didn't like the communication between Virgin Atlantic with travelers, communication between Virgin Atlantic and hotel Ramada. Everything was really poorly."

Pros: "Everything except the food"
Cons: "The food is atrocious. Even if I have to pay to upgrade my meal, I would..."

Pros: "Fabulous flight, light on passengers, so excellent service given by the crew. Virgin goes the extra mile on service and little perks. 747-400 planes also very comfortable, compared to the Airbus 320,"
Cons: "Nothing. Trip both ways were outstanding."

Pros: "Nobody are better hosts than the British. Great service, lovely people."

Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"

Pros: "Everything about my flights on Virgin Atlantic was amazing. The plane was new and comfortable, the seats seemed to recline more than in other airplane I have been. The entertainment was good with a wide selection of movies and TV shows. The crew was incredibly nice and helpful and I had a really pleasant time talking with them. On the airport team side I can also say they were extremely helpful as I missed my flight and they promptly rebooked me on the next one 3h later, free of charge. I think the stress of missing a flight was completely deflected by the help of the Virgin Atlantic crew at the desk so thank you for that!"
Cons: "The only thing I would improve is the main dish in the meal. I loved all the small sides like the Boursin and crackers but I found the main meal a little bland l."

Cons: "Staff"

Cons: "Staff was not concerned about anything, vague and uncaring..this was my son flying across the Atlantic idiots!! One pissed mom!!!"

Cons: "10 hour delay in Brisbane was terrible"

Cons: "Flight was an hour and a half late boarding, sat on the tarmac for 45 minutes, and there was no offer of complimentary beverages. Very barebones level of service."

Pros: "Quantity of food was less for the dinner time..but overall experience was good.."

Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."

Pros: "The movie selections and comfortable headsets made it possible to watch three movies uninterrupted. The food selections were well prepared. Flight attendants were helpful and efficient."
Cons: "Boarding is always a bit of chaos when our seats are right in the back. People further up insist on boarding early and block the aisles in the process. Multiple levels of passport control and baggage checkout are chaotic, but that's for most all flights coming into USA? VIrgin/Delta handled it well enough. By the time we got through passport control in Boston ur bags were waiting and we had no problems at all."

Pros: "Very nice staff"

Pros: "1st class, what's not to like?"

Pros: "Crew, fabulous, Plane configuration, GENEROUS, just the best flight I've experiences in a very long time!"
Cons: "Some meal choices were a bit sparse. That's my only complaint!"

Pros: "airline staff was helpful, friendly and accommodating from ticket check in to flight staff."

Cons: "If the luggage fees were to be included in the price, I would have gladly chosen Emirates for its comfort at that price."

Pros: "."
Cons: "For an international flight, the plane was too small, cramped and uncomfortable. Food had to be purchased. No entertainment what so ever. Previous I took a VA flight to Perth from Melbourne. Same distance, bigger plane, entertainment on seat backs and a meal. This flight soured me."

Cons: "Crew"

Pros: "The space you have with your legs is sufficient and the chairs are very comfortable. The food was really nice. I enjoyed the trip, although it was a long one."

Cons: "Price?"

Pros: "Service, food, etched all fine"
Cons: "Fees to assign seats in advance are very high. Sat on the Tarmac a while before takeoff and after landing."

Pros: "Great cabin comfort and entertainment. Very nice place to be."
Cons: "Cabin crew less warm and professionally nice than Virgin. One point that needs addressing is that when the cabin crew or, even more so, the pilot came on the PA, the sound level was so much louder than that of the entertainment system. You had people jumping out of their seats and it was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "the food was decent"
Cons: "the crew was rude, the bathrooms were not clean"

Pros: "Great service, comfortable and punctual"

Pros: "Friendly service. Safe, on time flight."
Cons: "Chicken lunch was just so-so."

Pros: "Keep up the good work. The crew was amazingly hospitable. I felt right at home. THANKS"
Cons: "I would suggest James Bond be made available, It seems appropriate. However I have no complaint."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Very attentive and welcoming."

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Airline was operated by Delta Air. COVID precautions with distancing on board were not followed. Flight was overcrowded- hardly any empty seats between passengers."

Pros: "Old aircraft showing its age."

Pros: "Had seat open next to me"
Cons: "Delays on afternoon flights East create all sorts of problems; fewer options the later the arrival"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight wasn't full. I could have been seated somewhere else since passenger next to me was quite large and invading my personal space"

Pros: "Crew ok ... not engaging"

Pros: "live tv, watched the formula one race"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable, and the side panel at my feet was broken off and i could see through the floor of the plane"

Pros: "Professional crew, Good service , comfortable seating, fine entertainment."
Cons: "First time traveling abroad, it was a unique experience and a learning one."

Pros: "Crew very nice."
Cons: "Better food"

Cons: "A Boeing 757 should not be used for a 6+ hour flight"

Pros: "NOTHING."
Cons: "Missed the flight due to the sheer unhelpfulness and incompetence of the gate personnel. They would not let me board, since I was about 10 minutes late. THEN THE PLANE WAS DELAYED FOR ABOUT 2 HOURS!!! I was stranded in NY, overnight, and had to pay hundreds of dollars for a train ticket and a cab."

Cons: "I’m still in Los Angeles 10 hours after landing, having missed the connecting flight."

Cons: "Plane had to divert from Salt-Lake City due to a storm. My son 17 years old traveling alone once in Salt-Lake City should have been given priority for an overnight stay instead of sleeping on an airport bench! Dinner + Breakfast vouchers would also have been nice compared to the 15$ food voucher..."

Cons: "The Male flight attendant was rather rude"

Cons: "I feel like all the problems the aircraft had it should've been repaired before trying to use it, upon boarding they told us the left engine had to be started from an external source, as a new flyer that was terrifying to hear"

Cons: "Plane very late. Boarding was chaos"

Pros: "Flight was overbooked!!!! How dare you overbook your planes? If you do that, get new plane!!! People loosing time and money.. 9 people couldn’t get seat on the play they paid for... tomorrows flight is same sting... this is last time fling delta... and we are silver medallions... who fly a lot!!!"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked!!!! How dare you overbook your planes? If you do that, get new plane!!! People loosing time and money.. 9 people couldn’t get seat on the play they paid for... tomorrows flight is same sting... this is last time fling delta... and we are silver medallions... who fly a lot!!!"

Pros: "Flight was on time/ early."
Cons: "Have hot water for coffee and outlets for phones"

Pros: "Pilot and his ability to maneuver the turbulence. Also variety of snacks."
Cons: "Felt hot in the plane."

Pros: "The movies offered were decent"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat I sit down after they squeezed us all in like sardines and come to my surprise there is no window in my aisles it had been covered up in plastic . First making my area narrow than all the other seats and between the plane leaving late and the terrible process of loading people on the plane . Delta airlines was all about the up sale from charging for every bag to charging for internet ,food so on and so forth. Also one bathroom in the middle of the plane ? REALLY ? Out of tissue , paper towels , and tissue one hour into the flight . What in the Hell is going on with this airline ? Won’t fly with them again ."

Pros: "very fast boarding , attentive , and easy to figure out"
Cons: "seats cushions"

Cons: "This was my worst EVER airline experience. It was delayed 27 hours and the snow was not the only problem. When we finally got on board a plane we sat on the runway for over two hours - then they FORGOT to load the luggage!!!"

Pros: "Thankfully I had an Aisle Seat so I could move around a bit. Every seat was taken and it was like a sardine can."
Cons: "Very little leg room and of course as soon as we were in the Air the person in front of me reclined his seat all the way back so the Monitor was only a few inches from my face. This was my single major complaint. The food was not great but typical of an American Carrier. The foreign airlines do better on food. The last time I went to Europe I took WOW, the cheapest budget Airline and the leg room was MUCH better. You would think Delta could do better."

Pros: "No problems occured"
Cons: "Takes so long to board"

Pros: "I love Delta! Always professional, efficient and polite. They disappoint on this round-trip flight. They are my go-to carrier. When I call the people whom I speak to are always very polite and efficient"
Cons: "The person next to me was a very large individual and the seats were not wide. This phenomenon had nothing to do with Delta as a carrier, however."

Pros: "Efficient and friendly"

Pros: "El cumplimiento de vuelos"

Pros: "Seems like people that work for Delta are too old and too comfortable. Don’t want to work nor do they appreciate customers. Gate agent in SLC complained she was the only one there and could not help. Tried to send me tohelp desk which would have made me miss my flight. Flight attendant couldn’t move my back pack in bin did not tell me she had a bad shoulder. She should not be working then if she can’t lift a small backpack. Omg"

Pros: "Easy work trip and with the storms coming in I was able to get out early without fees"
Cons: "Snow storms. Not a fan."

Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "The booking was done through vayama and the confirmation numbers didn't match with delta's. It was confusing. I had to talk to a delta rep and give her the eticket # and at that point, she gave me a new confirmation #, that I was able to use to check in with on delta"

Pros: "Nothing Special"

Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "Customer service over the phone is the worst. 30 minutes for them to pick up and then get transferred to a very rude representative."

Pros: "I love Delta airline this is what airline I pefer to go with whenever I fly anywhere they are the way for me such happy ppl and so much help."
Cons: "On one of my flights the Wi-Fi was down so it killed my entertainment but the flight wasn't long so it wasn't so bad for me"

Pros: "The crew was nice and pleasant. They didn’t fuss over ym carry on being too big. They were very accommodating. Boarding was very quick again"

Pros: "Everything from the check-in to the landing was great. We were well informed about what was going on with out luggage (we were on a regional flight) and the assortment of free snacks were superb! I guess I'll be a returning customer"
Cons: "I was expecting some form of entertainment (radio, overhead monitor, etc) on the CRJ700. But it really don't take away from the experience since T-Mobile partnered with the Wi-Fi service and I received a free hour of Wi-Fi!"

Cons: "Layover"

Cons: "Delta delayed our outbound flight causing us to miss our connection."

Pros: "Smaller plane, aisle seat with a lot of leg room (5c), smooth flight"
Cons: "Shorter flight so no snacks/drinks were served, although requests were fulfilled."

Pros: "I love the media that is INCLUDED in the price of your ticket on Delta Flights. That sets Delta apart for me."

Pros: "it was great experience"

Pros: "Had a great experience on my flight. All on time, and connections were great."

Cons: "After more than an hour on the tarmac.. would be nice to have water availatfor passengers."

Cons: "The upgraded seat was horrible - and I want a complete discount."

Pros: "I had 45 minutes to transfer planes in Atlanta and made it in plenty of time even though it was far. plenty of information given regarding incoming flight and departure. Boarding was also easy."
Cons: "The engine noise in the plane was so loud I couldn't watch a movie. My gluten free meal was awful and tasteless. I would have preferred yogurt and fruit instead of the chicken and vegetables with a rice cake."

Cons: "Most everything was excellent, however my 2 year old daughter's in seat entertainment screen wasn't working. It was a full flight and there was no option to change seats. I brought it to the flight attendants attention however she wasn't able to reset it. A 7-hour flight from NY to Zurich travelling with small children without the movies was not as pleasant as it could have been."

Pros: "They offered water and snacks It was quick"

Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."

Pros: "Over all was okay, but when we all boarded the plane, they last minute said the pilot would be late, and delayed our flight for almost 2 hours. We were almost late to our next flight in Minneapolis to Raleigh which was also pretty upsetting. But, the service was decent, we didn't order any food besides the free complimentary drink & snack and the entertainment was very good. There was a wide range of films, shows, and podcasts to watch."
Cons: "Management was very bad- Delta screwed up really bad"

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Plane was terrible. Not paying Delta prices to fly in a Spirit plane"

Pros: "Courtesy and attention to detail of crew"

Pros: "Very helpful crew. Quick boarding process."
Cons: "Not much leg room, or space in seats."

Pros: "Nice crew short flight."
Cons: "Not much flight was too short to say"

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and kind"
Cons: "Seats are small and not much legroom, like on all flights. I hadn’t found a way to pay for a checked bag online, so that process was a little awkward - had to leave my passport and boarding passes at the check in counter, walk to the ticketing counter, wait in line to pay, then walk back to the check in counter. But the staff was very friendly and kind."

Pros: "The crew were truly great as I had an extremely difficult flight due to tremendous pain in my knees. Coach economy are way too narrow, even if I paid for preferred seating. A joke. Cldnt move. So uncomfortable."
Cons: "Boardingvwas delayed so we left a good 50 minute late. Ran out of meal choice so we had to eat what they had left which was pasta that was too spicy for me anyway. I was very disappointed bec I preferred chicken but there were none left."

Pros: "Flight landed on time"
Cons: "Gate was constantly changed with no audible notification at the gate and boarding process was mayhem"

Pros: "amazong"

Pros: "I didn't like that my bag wasn't delivered from Frankfurt to Barselona"
Cons: "Paying more attention to bags transportation between plains"

Pros: "The crew were really friendly and made sure we were looked after."

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "When we got to get our tks they had us on stand by even when we paid for our flight a month in advance"

Pros: "Crew were amazing not stingy with the drinks. Boarding was easy and smooth"
Cons: "Would prefer flying with partner United though. Think they offered a better service on board"

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"
Cons: "food screens"

Cons: "Waiting to dis embark off the plane, waited almost an hour! After flying for 10 hours the last thing we want to do is sit in the plane for another hour"

Pros: "Nice comfortable flight"
Cons: "misspellt my name!"

Pros: "Too cramped for a 10 hour flight"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The people who work for Lufthansa are the nicest i’ve met, on par with Turkish airlines. The times for boarding and departure were respected, the flight crew was extra nice, even accommodating requests that gave them extra-work. Economy passengers were treated like first class in terms of service and solicitude of the crew. Headphones, blankets, pillows were offered free of charge, so we’re the food and drinks, and there was a good selection of movies and music. On a 770$ ticket, mind you! The crew will come by repeatedly to check if passengers desired some more wine or coffee, offered water and juices on a tray several times outside the regular service times, and cared for the families with children. Thumbs up!"
Cons: "The warm food was a bit unappetizing, the potatoes for instance were black, but there is nothing that the crew could do better than offer to replace it. Such graceful approach to a little inconvenience!"

Pros: "Lounge was very clean"
Cons: "In a 10 hours flight Frankfurt to Atlanta only one main meal. Service was rushed job. My seat wasn’t working and Tv remote didn’t work."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "service"
Cons: "delay"

Pros: "Good service"

Pros: "Well in time"
Cons: "We were not offered veg and non veg options. We were only offered a vegetarian meal. A minute later, the gentleman behind us was presented the two options. We disregarded this on the first flight, but when it happened on the next flight similarly, we asked if we could get our children the chicken meal. The air hostess explained they had no more. But she presented the two options to the fellow passenger behind us. We were extremely offended by the way we were treated. The airlines offers no entertainment for children as do other airlines. In fact, one air hostess went so far as to ask me to tell my Lil one to MUTE the volume of his ipad."

Pros: "Good pilots as usual new plane great service clean"
Cons: "Food could always get improvements"

Cons: "Services on the planes were not fantastic"

Cons: "Not able to watch TV, movies of flight status"

Pros: "Everything except the entertainment"
Cons: "The headphone jack didn't work. It priduced some sound, so it might fool a tchnician doing a quick check. But voices and most of the sound track garbled and muted."

Cons: "I order a seat near the window A9 but this seat has no window. the crew did not solve the problem even I ask them and note that is important to me/"
