Pros: "This was a Delta codeshare on KLM metal. We left on time and arrived early. The crew was very professional. The bathrooms were very clean."
Cons: "The seat in Economy Comfort was awful. Not enough padding and no place to put my feet because of a very large entertainment control box on the floor."
Pros: "The crew was great and very friendly."
Cons: "Never enough room and the food was okay. But what’s new about this when it comes to air travel?"
Pros: "Food was excellent. I had the pasta. Loved watching movies."

Pros: "Crew was courteous."
Pros: "The crew did their job. Some attendants were very kind, helpful."
Cons: "Food could be better. Old aircraft, old style seats. Other airlines have improved this very, very much. Delta is lagging behind."

Pros: "Good food, prompt service. Kind crew"
Pros: "Open seat next to me. Free movies."

Cons: "I was zitting against my Neighbor as the Seats are so narrow."
Pros: "The selection of movies was great."
Cons: "The food. No herbal or decaf tea. No decaf coffee. The regular coffee and regular tea was awful; I like strong coffee and tea but on the plane it was terrible. The was not a vegan option for dinner. I thought the pilot announced complimentary beverages; soft drinks, coffee, tea & alcohol. Perhaps I was mistaken or maybe he was. I like the seats (reclining back with the seat bottom moving forward) except the seat bottom is entirely too hard and was bad for my back. The hot towels are a welcome touch. The ride was smooth, the pilots did a very good job."
Pros: "Crew members were all very friendly and made the flight a nice trip as best they could."
Cons: "It would make a lot more sense for people to board from the back and window seats first so that we are not climbing over each other to get to our tiny seats."
Pros: "Economy Comfort, excellent in-flight entertainment (Movies)"
Cons: "Food was rather marginal (really no surprise, it's airplane food), tried unsuccessfully to hook-up to in-flight Wifi (couldn't get it to work throughout the flight)"

Pros: "When I arrived at Detroit I noticed there was an earlier flight going out to Amsterdam. The nice Delta rep gave me a new boarding pass for the earlier flight because there were empty seats on that plane."
Pros: "The service was excellent."
Pros: "Some of the cabin attendants were friendly and helpful. Others not so much."
Cons: "Even in "world business class" the pods are very small and cramped and there is no room to put a carry on bag even something as small as a headphone box. Also the business class bathroom was very small, very disgustingly dirty when we boarded (someone tried to clean it a bit) and dirty and small throughout the flight. The bathroom does not have ventilation and the toilet basically does not have any liquid for flushing!"
Pros: "I paid 60 bucks for an emergency row exit, take get some extra leg room and space so that I would be fresh when I arrived in Munich. However KLM allowed a passenger — who did not pay for the emergency row to sit next to me because he needed the extra space because he was a liarge man, and clearly didn’t fit very well in the economy seats. Thus I I lost all the extra space and actually would of preferred a regular economy seat. that would’ve been more preferential then paying $60 and getting less space than I would’ve had it in a regular economy. I understand the other passengers comfort was important and if that was the case he should’ve paid $60 as well."
Cons: "I did not get a choice of seat for the one and a half hour flight from Amsterdam to Munich and I sat in a middle row for the first time in 20 years."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived early. Dinner quality was good Crew was very professional"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "It got me there in one piece. USB ports, entertainment system a good distraction."
Cons: "Terrible food, aisles too tight, seats not very comfortable. 777’s are very noisy. Visas on arrival a ridiculous disaster- 100’s of people standing in lines for over an hour while 3 people slowly stamp your passport. Know that is not the airline’s fault!"
Pros: "on time, good food, good films enough space to sleep in economy."
Cons: "the stewardess only went up one side of the plane offering eye shades and when i asked for one she seemed really miffed."
Pros: "Attentiveness, service, and smiles!"
Pros: "They must deliver my missing bag on top most priority."
Cons: "All four checked baggages received up to Mumbai. I handed over to domestic jet airways all four bags as per the system at Mumbai. But at the end I received only three baggages at Ahmedabad. I informed jet airways about one missing bag. They have acknowledged it and the missing bag was to arrive at Ahmedabad in the next flight. I am still waiting for the missing bag."
Pros: "Pleased we upgraded to comfort plus."

Pros: "Smoorh travels"
Cons: "Economy seats mot comfortable for sleeping"
Cons: "Hard to get comfortable even in easy comfort but easy comfort is better than typica arats."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Felt like a sardine . Just like ALL fights these days."
Cons: "The food service was way to rushed , no time to relax with a cocktail before dinner was being served. The warm mixed nuts were stale tasting. The soup was excellent. The breakfast was not edible . Not your usual standard, Delta. Makes me sad as my late husband was a million miler plus and we have always been loyal to you, Seems like you have too many passengers in business class to provide food and service you can be proud of"

Cons: "Jet airways sucks"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Nothing- good flight, I couldn't sleep but that wasn't your fault"

Pros: "Entertainment offered, USB charging options."
Cons: "Too much food offered."
Pros: "Very attentative."
Pros: "The food, comfort and service of Delta One class have continued to excel. Since this was a scheduled late departure and they still offered the full menu, I chose to have only the appetizer portion. This turned out to be a fine soup, salmon salad and multiple extras. This was perfect for an 11:00 PM dinner."
Cons: "It enough leg room and I am not tall. I'm 5'5""
Pros: "Within Europe KLM short flights are very good. They give you a snack and something to drink without charge."
Cons: "Seats,are a little tight but like most other airlines."
Pros: "Boarding was straightforward and without all the fuss that one gets with the cheap airlines, or worse, with Air France. For economy tickets, the level of comfort was adequate, but the seats didn't return to upright easily and the entertainment screen took a whole load of taps before it responded sometimes. A reasonable level of service for the price, and the plane was on time."
Cons: "The crew were disengaged. There were too many interruptions over the speaker system, first the English one, then just as you got back into your film, a Dutch one. I don't believe that have experienced such a level of disruption in some time."
Pros: "The flight was on time!"
Cons: "Economy seats are squished and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Food, entertainment, cleanliness"
Cons: "We were sitting in our assigned seats and the flight attendants and gate staff entered the plane were trying to say we were in the wrong seats. Then my special meal was not provided so I ate nothing during flight."
Cons: "Complimentary ear plugs and mask would have been great."
Pros: "Good crew. Multiple options on entertainment, if I so chose. Roomy seat. Arrived safely."
Cons: "Had to pay $180+ extra to get a seat with decent leg room. Had small child next to me who was not well behaved. Limited bathrooms. Cooler vent blowing right on me which I couldn't move. Long delay before and after boarding, and left an hour late."
Cons: "Nice exp and service"
Pros: "boarding was fast, flight was on time, nice crew"
Cons: "pretty basic creature comforts, seats so so"
Cons: "Almost didn’t get breakfast because I was asleep. Crew wasn’t very good about picking up trash."
Cons: "We took off about three hours late because of a small mechanical problem discovered after we boarded. The plane had been sitting at Dulles for 12 hours. Couldn't it have been checked earlier in the day?"
Pros: "High marks when you can ease my fear of flying."
Pros: "Quick boarding. Ontime departure."
Cons: "Very small servings of food."
Pros: "The entire process was smooth and efficient. The crew were friendly, helpful, and made the trip an easy one."
Pros: "good seating. I am 6'5" and i was pretty comfortable"
Cons: "Seats way too tight- very confining"
Pros: "I have always loved flying Lufthansa however we didn't fly Lufthansa, we were on United for both legs of our flight. Like all American opperated airlines they skimp on comfort in order to pack more people on their flight. I hope we are on Lufthansa on our way home at least."
Cons: "I have always loved flying Lufthansa however we didn't fly Lufthansa, we were on United for both legs of our flight. Like all American opperated airlines they skimp on comfort in order to pack more people on their flight. I hope we are on Lufthansa on our way home at least."
Pros: "No delays for flight, despite weather."
Cons: "Lack of legroom or recline in seats. I know it’s economy, but come on. We’re not sardines."
Pros: "That the flight was on time"
Cons: "I flew with 1 child and 1 infant and there was no help, not at check in, not at boarding nor from the crew on board. I requested a bassinet before the flight over the phone and didn't get it. There was an issue with the infant ticket and the United check in agent was incompetent to fix it, which made us late for boarding. No one helped me at boarding with taking the stroller from me. On board the crew members were annoyed when I ask for some hot water for a baby bottle. And it's sad that children don't get a kid's meal ( which we received flying with many other airlines) and have to eat the uneatable adult meal. That was my first and last time flying with United."
Pros: "I like the people are friendly and when traveling by myself it is always a pleasure to have someone next to me to have a good conversation"
Cons: "I did like the food option. I don't eat cheese and all the food had cheese in it."
Cons: "Work with me on ticket"
Pros: "There were extra seats due to few passengers. We were very timely in leaving and landing. The dinner was good. I had pasta with spinich and a red and white sause. Very tasty and hot. They came around with plenty of water. The ticket price was very reasonable."
Cons: "This flight was on United. So, there was no internet to purchase as the emails from Lufthansa claimed there would be. I woke up in the middle of the night and went to 3 open seats and laid across them. It was dark and I did not realize that I had moved to Economy Plus. The flight attendant told me that I should not have been there, that she could have charged me for the difference in the seat. Prior to this I felt pretty good about the flight. There was no reason for her to treat me that way. It was apparent that it was a mistake and not done purposely."
Pros: "I ordered a special meal and it was delicious! Because I have dietary concerns, I often have to order a special meal. Usually, I find that the alternatives meals are second thoughts and thus can be rather tasteless. I was very thankful for my meal."
Cons: "The plane was so tiny we were packed in it like sardines. I am a rather small person (barely 5 feet tall) and usually have no complaints about space on a flight but even my knees hit the back of the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Friendly staff, on time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Cramped planes."
Cons: "Polaris Lounger at OHare packed, no seats available, more room in the terminal. Why pay for business. Polaris is a marketing strategy in name only not backed up by lounges or aircraft. Flight to Amsterdam on a poorly equipped 767. Poor seats. Poor food."
Cons: "Crew was not very accommodating. Seemed more interested in sleeping then providing service to passengers. Economy plus seats not that comfortable. Flight delayed and baggage took forever."
Pros: "There were no delays"
Cons: "Even for a smaller person like myself, it was quite cramped--moreso than what I've noted in the past"
Pros: "Entertainment, food, service, on-time landing (early!)"
Cons: "The magazine Puch was nasty, the magazines old and sticky,"
Pros: "The flight and service was nice."
Cons: "Sitting between two people to entire flight made it seem like a much longer trip."
Cons: "The movie failed multiple times. The internet was unacceptably slow."
Pros: "For those prices, I liked nothing. Tolerate was more like it."
Cons: "Business class seating is way overdue to be replaced and need for two prong connection to entertainment sound is a joke. Polaris Lounge missing any kind of basic food or snacks in effort to go overboard with chef "inspired" food. Seating largely geared to single travelers and travelers of 2+ people have difficulty finding seating."
Pros: "Plane delayed 24 hours. Plane left next day without us and our rescheduled plane was delayed."
Pros: "Crew was efficient and curtious. Dinner (veg option) was good."
Cons: "Enterrtanment system not working well. Breakfast was minimal, bread very dry."
Cons: "I got an infection in my colon from the bacteria in the food I ate on the flight. I had acute diarrhea for four days and had to go to the hospital."
Pros: "All fine, except delay"
Cons: "2.5 hours delay: plane needed maintenance and then more of that, a were unloaded. Took another plane."
Cons: "Delay in boarding"
Pros: "The experience was bad all around. The flight crew was understanding and sympathetic to the situation but offered no concern."
Cons: "The gate agent was not helpful when my flight was running late and was going to miss my connection in Chicago. 10 mins is not enough time to taxi to the gate unload and get to my next flight. The doors close 10 mins before even if it was the next gate the door would have been shut. Had to reschedule flight for not the same day or the next day but two days later! During flight my inflight drink was evening coffee and tasted old as if it had been sitting for a while. Was sat next to a sick ER nurse who was coughing and sneezing in and around the open cup. I was sick for 8 and half days following the flight."
Pros: "Security was great! No hassle and quick. Boarding was on time and fast."
Cons: "Plane was small and cramped. The snack packs of pretzels and things is not very good, it doesn't taste the best and is not healthy for anyone. Had to gate check my one item. Very cold in the cabin even after two hours in flight."
Cons: "When I attempted to check in for flights using the United app both outgoing and return, I found boarding passes were not available for all flights and had to call United to have reservation adjusted so boarding passes could be issued. Don't know why? but inconvenient."
Cons: "Entertainment and food could have been better."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Touch screen on entertainment not sensitive enough and requires tapping hard to scroll through and select movies. Tapping from person behind you can be felt and wake you up from your sleep"
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Easy flight, no issues."
Cons: "Little more leg room. Eye mask would have been nice."
Pros: "Formallyncorrect behavior by crew"
Cons: "Very little understanding, empathy for exhausted and very thirsty passengers after significant delay. Water, refreshments served very late after take off. Crew just doesnt care, they do their work, that's it."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "United economy is so tight, I was very uncomfortable, made worse by a reclined seat in front. Flight was overbooked, so we did not have seat assignments until end, and could not sit together. Outdated entertainment system, had to hear and could not control start time of movies. I will try to avoid United flights to Europe in future."
Cons: "Two hour delay for start of engines.. Not enough chichen and pasta was not good"
Pros: "Entertainment was good Snack provided was ok"
Cons: "The food could have been better, with some choice for children Service was ok, the flight was really empty but felt we didn't get much better attention. Everything was still a rush."
Pros: "Pre-check with United"
Cons: "Did not get connecting flights boarding pass from the beginning. Short connection time - was very stressful"
Pros: "Food was nice"
Cons: "My Bags were sent to wrong flight and now still waiting for my luggage. Trying to call the numbers to track my bags and the number is always busy. I don't know when I will have have my bags. It is very frustrating"
Cons: "The seats were assigned for us and we couldn't get a boarding pass. United has this central ticket agent kiosk separate from the gate area which I couldn't find. All 4 of us were on line and had to get off and find this kiosk in order to get our boarding passes before we could get on."
