Pros: "I got to my destination on time with my luggage"

Pros: "Excellent entertainment very friendly crew"
Cons: "Seat didnt fit to me."
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."

Pros: "They printed all 3 of my boarding passes for my connecting flights when I first checked in, made me worry about less"
Cons: "My flight was delayed almksr 3 hours...nothing more. It's very frustrating because the problem could have been avoided if they were more careful but oh well. I'm making this review very short compared to my others because I know that if I start on a rant, I won't stop. Trust me, I'll safe that for the phone call complaint I'll be making in a few hours..."
Pros: "On demand entertainment systems seem standard, as I’ve flown Qatar several times and always had it. Friendly staff. And Doha is a great connection airport."

Pros: "The trip was very pleasant as usual, being frequent flyer on Qatar airways since 2005, I can only tell that this is so far the best airline company. Great service. On time if not ahead Never lost a bag or got it delayed. Very diversified entertainment program Lovely staff Confortable and clean flights. And of course convenient price. Briefly, I love Qatar Airways and it is my first choice wherever I travel."
Cons: "So far nothing."
Pros: "Everything was great except the plane from Doha to Beirut it was too small with no seat screens and bad c music channels and non-comfortable seats !! :( otherwise everything was great !! I like Qatar airlines and don't hesitate to travel with them again Thank you"
Cons: "Food is not up to the standard. They make announcements that there will be snacks like sandwiches and ice creams, but they don't offer that openly. You have to ask for snacks. Now we, US citizens don't like to ask for food just so you know. The crew should offer. if we don't need the food, we can always say no."
Pros: "Punctuality, Crew assistance"
Cons: "Refreshments are very basic and dry"
Pros: "Plane wasn't full, which was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Starting the pre-boarding process into an area without a restroom was horrible. Not allowing us to bring a water bottle on a 14-hour flight was cruel. Movie selection could be better. Additionally, it seems like the Qatar airport is becoming more like a US airport. Agents were barking orders and the pre-boarding process was slow. It was not a good start to the flight."
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?"
Pros: "Pilots. Flight attendants. Space. Left and arrived on time."
Pros: "I appreciate that Delta leaves seats empty, for our health."
Cons: "Snacks were all sugar-laden. Not good for anyone!"
Pros: "Great crew."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient."
Pros: "The plane arrived in Atlanta ahead of time and thus we were able to start boarding earlier than usual. The gate agent kept the process in order and moved the boarding process along nicely. The pilots also got us to Baton Rouge 28 minutes ahead of schedule which was appreciated. Nice flight."
Cons: "Same issue with getting passengers seated once on the aircraft and then getting their luggage stowed takes too much time."
Pros: "All good."
Pros: "Confort for a supposed 5 hours flights was ok. Entertainment system worked good"
Cons: "The flight had many delays due to weather issues. We had to refuel in a different airport before arriving with 5 or 6 hours delayed. That happens but the crew was very mean and brutal to answer questions and very poor to hold the stress of the travelers."
Pros: "We got home safely! The crew was great and generally cheerful despite less than great conditions."
Cons: "Lots of delays due to weather, which I get. The plane was small and old and stuffy with too close seats."
Cons: "I almost missed the flight because I didnt hear the announcement for boarding and I was sitting near another gate to charge my phone. Fortunately I heard the final call!!"
Pros: "Matt was great. I had an exit row so it was comfortable."
Cons: "Deplaning takes FOREVER"
Pros: "Everything except landing at the same time my next flight was boarding. I had to sprint and was greeted my the meanest delta agent I have ever known. I didn’t know you could be that snotty. She would not Listen to me or help me get the correct seat o had signes up for"
Cons: "Attends on flight said to go ask gate crew to help me and I rushed out to be greeted again by the bus mean crude snotty agent. She told me to get my rear on the plane The attendants didn’t have a clue that she had others to board ( they all got upgrades) and I better move my rear. I was shocked."
Pros: "The Delta flight crew was exceptional!! Friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "The flight was only half full so boarding was very quick."
Cons: "The seats were hard and there was no entertainment system."
Pros: "2: 1/2 delay"
Cons: "They put us on the plane after waiting 11/2 hours, we all had to deplane as the mechanical problems were not done correctly. We waited another hour to correct before leaving. The gate agent was able to get me on a later connecting flight to Charleston. That was a positive."
Pros: "Flight itself was fine"
Cons: "My flight to Atlanta was delayed which caused me to miss my flight to Seattle. The next earliest flight was booked so had to catch another flight several hours later. No one from Delta offered any sort of compensation."
Pros: "With all the competition among airlines and the cutbacks we suffer as customers Delta manages to make you feel like you matter still. Timely boarding, actual help with finding seats making boarding efficient (not just hurrying you along), updates from the cockpit that you could hear and understand, multiple choices in snacks-one even a healthy option, staff that was friendly and interested in making it a good experience not one that seemed bothered they had to work."
Pros: "The crew, the food, the amount of beverages served"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and tried their best the delay."

Cons: "All good."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Small aircraft. Loud engine noise. Biased treatment for tickets booked on non Delta sites"
Pros: "Very comfortable and great crew."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the just a little bit larger seats, extra leg room, and the ability to watch a movie on a screen that wasn't my iphone 6 screen."
Cons: "It would be nice to have gluten-free snack options on the flight, since I have to be gluten-free."
Pros: "Quick boarding/unboarding."
Cons: "Wouldn't allow me on earlier flight, when there was room, without change fee"
Pros: "It landed safely"
Cons: "Delayed take-off, one plane for hour or so."
Pros: "If you're willing to pay the upgrade, the entertainment system and ear buds should be in working order! Seats still uncomfortably narrow and audio system on plane should be audible!"
Pros: "Ease of flight"
Cons: "Nothing special - just ok - tight leg leg room was expected - no entertainment at all - wifi very slow and couldn't load a book for my almost blind father - just ok"
Pros: "Very comfortable plane, 4 snack choices, friendly crew."
Cons: "It was all good, except that the charging stations were difficult to figure out since they were out of sight under the seats. I had to have the flight attendant plug in my charger."
Pros: "Friendly and informative flight attendants kept the passengers in reasonable spirit."
Cons: "Left nearly an hour late after confusion related to oversold seats and upgrades. The gate agent entered the plane multiple times. The landing was rough, the brakes were loud."
Pros: "ability to book a later flight when I missed my connection through the delta app."
Cons: "Delays, missed a connection, booked a new connection through the app and that one was delayed as well...what was supposed to be a 3.5 hour experience turned into a much longer one. Seats do not accommodate people over 6'2" abiet very poorly."
Pros: "There was a great selection of available movies"
Cons: "Again, crew was rude at the check-in counter"
Pros: "Professional and efficient"
Cons: "I am 5'3". My feet never touch the floor, which is quite uncomfortable after about an hour."
Pros: "The only positive of this leg is that it was less infuriating than the flight from RDU to Boston"
Cons: "Delta's partnership with Go Jet seriously compromises the legacy carrier's reputation. I am a Delta fan - although flexible enough to use other choices when necessary. I will no longer fly a Go Jet operated leg when other choices are available. For my trips to Boston, that means Jet Blue. Sorry Delta. I'll see you back on a true Delta route."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Flight was so short there was no food , drink or entertainment."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Tv wouldn't work and delay that wasn't weather related and the food was awful"
Cons: "It was belated by 2.5 hrs :("
Pros: "Overall it was good"
Pros: "Our original flight delayed and then cancelled and the need help kiosk was quick to provide an alternative. Better aircraft and good flight compared with the original flight"
Cons: "The replacement flight has been delayed almost 2:30 hours due to bad weather in NYC."
Cons: "Sat in Delta Comfort and a loyal Delta flier, except had the bad fortune of taking off at 830 ATL time and apparently Delta doesn't find it important or a good idea to sell food after that time. The logic behind this is beyond me. I'm willing to pay $9 for a few cheese slice and crackers or a sandwich yet they don't offer anything, not even to first class which would really irritate me had I paid 1000 bucks. Ontop of that the crew which is normally excellent, was feisty and rude and wanted nothing to do with their job"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I have been with Delta for years and their response to me about booking my flight and using the payment method was they are working on it and there is nothing they can do. They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."
Pros: "That we got home. Delta was apologetic but it would be nice if you didn't get stuck for hours touching and looking at the grime left by others."
Cons: "Too bad the attitude of one crew member wrecked it for her coworkers but this can happen. Sorry for Delta and pasengers. The plane was disgusting, filthy, miserable. Dirty trays for more than one in our party. The lavatory on starboard side was a wreaking urine splattered mess before the plane took off. Come on airlines. Take your profits and at least clean your crappy old planes if not replace them."
Pros: "I've never seen such a modern and easy to use entertainment system before. All the movies are complimentary."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed leaving and arriving, but that's the nature of the beast"
Pros: "Window seat"
Pros: "The delta employees kept us informed of what was going on with the jetway which had broken. Despite the chaotic boarding, we arrived at our destination on time! Way to go! I do love delta."
Cons: "Due to the construction in the airport, there is a small area for this group of people to be ready to board, therefore, it was very difficult to move or get around, Suggest that employees give more instructions about boarding procedures and suggest that people line up accordingly in the right order. They should explain the order of entry, and ask for people who are the last group to stay back so that those who board first are allowed through."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Nice crew short flight."
Cons: "Not much flight was too short to say"
Pros: "fast boarding"
Cons: "Food was poor. Movie options limited and the software frequently froze and needed rebooting."
Pros: "no drama ....just good, timely service."
Cons: "The seats are tight and sitting on the aisle is a bit uncomfortable for me but I didn't pay extra for a better location."
Cons: "A little bit turbulence"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on-time. Flight attendents were pleasant and helpful. Food portions and choices were good, and Lufthansa is always generous with drinks. Good value for money on Lufthansa."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, as clear instructions were not given about which group was boarding when and where to line up. Also Lufthansa did not do a good job managing carry-on bags, so that it took way too long to load people and many bags were left over once overhead bins were full. Seating area is cramped in economy."
Pros: "Better food than on flights I've been on originating in Germany."
Cons: "Not sure about booking with flyus. Com- next time I will prefer not to use Kayak if flight is booked through flyus.com"
Pros: "The fact that it was indeed a plane that went to europe. that's it."
Cons: "The staff (especially ticketing) was rude. And hung up on me when I asked for their name because they knew they were wrong."
Pros: "The food and drink were the only two enjoyable moments of this flight."
Cons: "The crew in Cluj airport could not care less about getting the plane boarded and departed on time. For 20 minutes crew stood around in the airport talking to each other and using their cellphones. Finally the transport bus was loaded only to have the bus driver get out, and talk to another employee while simultaneously using his phone. No information was given for the delay and the plane was boarded at time of departure. This careless and unbothered attitude resulted in a missed connecting flight for my partner and I. We were completely unassisted by crew on the plane and ended up having to wait 24hours for our next flight home. Absolutely disgusted by the service provided from Cluj to Munich. I would seriously consider another airline before booking again with Lufthansa for this route."
Pros: "The flight was nice and the people were friendly and good"
Cons: "My stroller’s leg got broken and I did report"
Pros: "Lots of legroom, friendly crew, and they serve sandwiches! Asked for water after takeoff and they gave it to me without hesitation! I would definitely recommend them!"
Cons: "I can’t find anything to complain about."
Cons: "Because the one came in from London Got Delay And I miss my flight"
Cons: "Waited an hour after boarding in the plane."
Cons: "Can’t tell you anything- missed connection"
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice. 3 hour trip took 15 hours."
Cons: "We landed an hour later than planned with no warning, I missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "Nice plane. On time, excellent service, great entertainment options. I almost always fly Lufthansa as it’s the best value for the price."
Pros: "Left in time, arrived too early"
Cons: "Boarding took a lot of time"
Pros: "timeliness of departure time in flight service quality in flight food offering other than main meals friendliness of flight crew linguistic capabilities of flight crew"
Cons: "touch screen for in flight entertainment did not work very well"
Cons: "The food options you're supposed to get don't exist because they provide a limited number of the variety they have! By the time they get to your seat, they are already out of options. Sadly, the quality and service are going down too."
Cons: "Boarding seamed inefficient. Loaded handicap onto separate vehicle in middle of us boarding, so it stopped our process. My seat didn't recline even though it had a button. No in flight entertainment?! At all... Got a crappy breakfast omelet that i didn't want to put in my stomach."
Pros: "The crew - seemed very amenable and pleasant on this flight. One helped me move to effectively solve the acute posture problem."
Cons: "The seat - window by request, but it was in front of an emergency exit The seat - is jammed in - very tight - could not put it back to relax, and could not relax my left side by the window. My left shoulder and arm and left hip started hurting - couldn't sleep - took 2 days to get rid of the numbness in my arm. I asked to move, and it became obvious that there were many empty seats in the next section behind. I moved, and my comfort improved. Why was I given such a posture killer - especially on such a very long flight with seats to spare?"
Pros: "Crew attention"
Pros: "They made the experience enjoyable easy and I made me feel special"
Cons: "THE LATE HAPPENED FROM MONTREAL TO TORONTO 1:30 HOURS WITHOUT CUP OF WATER WAITING IN THE PLANE"
Pros: "Great movie options, relatively good food for an airplane."
Cons: "Booked way in advanced, paid extra to book upper deck on both; outgoing flight Miami - Frankfurt and return, but was bumped out of our seats. Spent 2 hours on the phone trying to book them again, and ended up on a lower deck on the Miami - Frankfurt flight, but re-booked on the upper deck on Frankfurt- Miami flight although not the side seats as I originally booked myself, but in the middle section. The entertainment's touch screen system is inadequate, not reacting to touch efficiently."
Cons: "Boarding mix up, which was completely Lufthansa's responsibility, delayed my flight to Istanbul for one hour which caused my missing my connection with another airline. This in turn cost me the original flight and a new ticket purchase of at an exorbent price."
Pros: "Better then United airline"
Cons: "Everything was awesome"
Pros: "New plane, good food, nice attentive crew, on time"
Cons: "Seats and seat space are shrinking, s not super comfortable."
Pros: "N-o entertainment"
Pros: "Although the departure was a little bit bumpy, the snack was tasty!"
Pros: "bad service"
Pros: "Boarding was fast Crew was polite"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board!!!!!!"
Cons: "My plane was non existent and put me on a time crunch for connecting flight."
Pros: "Friendliness of crew, punctuality of flight; complimentary plum cake; good selection of drinks. We were able to check in and choose seats online."
Pros: "Clean/comfortable plane with a great staff for the long flight."
Cons: "Hard to upgrade unless you spend a fortune."
Pros: "Flight cancelled see above"
Pros: "Good entertainment and food"
Cons: "Could use a foot rest"
Pros: "crew members are great availability of food choice availability of entertainment"
Cons: "seats are uncomfortable the seating has no cushioning in it, food can be better"
Pros: "The crew was very welcoming and attentive."
Cons: "That the price of the ticket dropped from when I originally purchased it by $500 and when I called for a refund of the difference I was told it could not be done. I also didn't like that we had to pay an additional cost for a seat selection. Selecting seats should be included."
Pros: "keep going"
Cons: "It was not Lufthansa but United Irlines. I wish it was Lufthansa."
Pros: "Everything was efficient and the somewhat long flight was easy because of food and entertainment. (Saw a really good Japanese film with subtitles)"
Cons: "Incorrect gate given for this flight, connecting flight was a little late. Everything was fairly quickly corrected."
Cons: "Small plain and food was very bad"
Cons: "Limited space"
Cons: "I didnt like the food offered"
Pros: "Crew was excellent, seats comfortable enough, tons of in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked and we nearly didn't get seats - I know this happens but it's especially aggravating and stressful for big international flights, and not worth putting your customers through the worry, IMO. We shouldn't need to worry about whether or not well get on the flight (and I'm sure some folks didn't...) when we paid so much for the tickets."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable, and I had plenty of space, because I was sitting near to the exit door. The service and the crew were just great. I love traveling with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Much better than lax to frankfurt"
Cons: "Too much walking from one gate to another. Seemed as if I walked the whole airport."
Cons: "Allow business passenger to use front bathroom."
Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"
Cons: "Not sure how to make the seats more comfortable. I have some back issues though. However, some of my travel companions slept right through the flight."
Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"
Cons: "Wifi on klm"
Pros: "The crew was very kind"
Pros: "Nice crew, good food."
Cons: "Both bathroom were not working in business class area."
Cons: "When its rain we shouldn’t walk to the air plain"
Pros: "Fantastic gate agents!"
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Pros: "The crew and the timing were ok"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"
Cons: "The flight was a bit delayed, but the airline handled it incredibly well. I was put up in a great hotel with good free food and caught another flight the next morning."
Cons: "Staff rude and short"
Pros: "Nice staff and no delay"
Cons: "Instead of crisps maybe a bit of cheese or crackers"
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: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."
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: "Crew was very friendly. Nice that wine was served without charge."
Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."
Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"
Cons: "The connecting flight is too short of a time. We were late out of LAX and I missed my connection and had to sit in airport for 5 hours. Missed my grandson’s third birthday party. Just made me sad as Travelled from far to try to make it."
Pros: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Evening snack was not the greatest breakfast was pretty food"
Pros: "Time and Good clean place.. in This case airpöane.."
Cons: "It was not entreteiment st all"

Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Easy to board and easy flight."
Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "I paid a top price for my ticket and expect the advertised amenities to work. Upgrade or replacement for entertainment system."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing and disorganized"
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Pros: "Food was just fine, movie selection very good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions, lights were truned on too early (1.5 hours before flight landed)"
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Pros: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"
Pros: "They were awesome."
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."
Pros: "captain was great."
Pros: "Except for my negative comment, a good flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, but due to the poor alignment of the seats with the actual windows, I actually sat next to a wall! Nol much to see out of a wall. If KLM are going to charge extra for a window seat, then they should make sure there is a window there! If the seat had actually had a window it would have been an excellent flight."
Pros: "Having exit aisle made a huge difference in comfort Crew were EXCELLENT"
Cons: "Food was not very good Tasteless and rubbery"
Pros: "Captain was updating us with the delay status."
Cons: "You have to be gold to get the priority boarding. In other countries I can do it with my silver status."
Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and because of this I missed my connection flight to Amsterdam"
