Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Nada, I slept through this leg and the staff let me be."
Cons: "Flight was 90 minutes late."
Pros: "crew was friendly"
Cons: "seats were way too cramped - worst flight ever that way - what has happened to Swiss - there is no room - horrible!!!"
Pros: "Orderly boarding process. Considerate reseating when bulkhead with extra legroom were not usable."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and helpful. If you travel Business Class it is very pleasant. But if you are traveling Economy the boarding management and economy seats suck! Many people were complaining about how narrow the economy seats are on the A320/330 aircraft."
Cons: "Swiss has finally done it! If you are a person who is large framed, around 225 lbs or higher you will not fit into their economy seats. I'm quite athletic and not obese but large framed (ex- football player), I could not sit squarely in the seat as my hips were severely pinched. Misery :("
Cons: "Flight delayed due to technical issues, boarding crew said there was a hole in the plane and that it might be canceled. After a long delay we finally tookoff. Plane was very cramped and very little room for the legs. Food and entertainment were average and fine."
Cons: "Had to pay the $259.00 to get another flight because my name wasn’t on the flight had to be on the phone for a hour and 28 minutes just to get my name on a flight after I paid over $900.00 on my round trip flight this was an awful experience and did not and will not book any flight ever with these airlines or the company representing them as VAYAMA"
Pros: "I never made the connection because the flight was cancelled. I liked nothing about the flight and to boot I got sick because I was up for over 40 hours straight... 11 of them spent in Customer Service line."
Cons: "It was a terrible two day experience that would have turned into over 3 if I did not cancel my flight plans.... vacation ruined."
Cons: "Entertainment system is dated. Screens froze often, were not very touch sensitive and the sound was pretty bad (on mine, would only provide sound to one ear, so I had to turn up other bc of poor quality and ended up w a headache.) Also, bathrooms were gross; ran out of paper and floors were "soiled""
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Flight was a bit delayed"
Pros: "Bombardier C Series. Most leg room and comfort of any plane"
Pros: "It was fine - overall pleasant/nothing."

Pros: "Very attentive staff, good food and drinks."

Cons: "My only complaint is that it took me this long to find this great airline. They will be my to go airline for Europe in the future."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight kept time. Safe trip. Thank you."
Cons: "The on board duty free did not have ample change, so I had to forfeit $3 in change.. On top of that they secrectly charged $10 extra on my card after my flight! I already got the ticket and paid extra luggage- what is the extra charge for?? The lady at extra luggage tried to overcharge me as well! Had to refer her to your website! I need this excess charges reversed. I demand an explanation!"
Pros: "The next best thing to the hard-working and kind crew was the lighting design. Meals were OK, and I was delighted that the vegan meals I ordered for my travel companion were right there as ordered. Not a common occurrence of late, I’m afraid, so I congratulate Swiss one getting this one right."
Cons: "Legroom is non-existent. This was by far the most uncomfortable aircraft I have ever flown on, with the possible exception of an Ilyushin 62 operated by Tarom in 1983. I felt bad for the man in front of me, with my knees in his back. That is, until he reclined his seat and put my video screen in my face. Not much to watch anyway, but it was impossible to lean forward at all. Boarding at JFK was rather chaotic."
Pros: "Most everything about the process."
Cons: "Person in front reclined chair fully and left virtually no room for sitting!"
Cons: "My seat did not recline and my tv did not work"
Cons: "Not enough leg room."

Cons: "Very long time to board which resulted in flight leaving late"
Cons: "Only one agent to check in economy passengers two agents for first class and 2 or 3 for special needs. There were many more economy passengers and it took a lot longer to be serviced more agents for economy would have been more equitable"

Pros: "The flight attendants were exceptionally nice - a real pleasure. Food was also quite good and the chocolate passing out is a super excellent treat."
Cons: "It is disappointing, on an 8+ hour flight, to have the entertainment system broken. The crew was apologetic, but it still is really lame. Made the flight oppressively long."

Cons: "The tight connection"
Pros: "2 Long flights. Friendly, efficient crew. Plane was clean. Price was good."
Pros: "There was metalic box underneath the seat in front of me (entertainment box), that did not leave any room to stretch my legs"

Pros: "My wife got travel sickness and the crew was very very nice to help her out by offering her a place to lie down and other offerings"

Pros: "Loved the entertainment options, and pretty Good food!"
Cons: "My name wasn't on the flight. I lost my seat."
Pros: "There was nothing unusual and we got to Zurich on time"
Cons: "The website was confusing, I couldn't check in online for this flight. When I checked in at the airport, I didn't get a boarding pass for the flight from Zurich as the attendant didn't find me in the system, thus it was uncertain if I would get to LAX on time. I was worried that I would not make my flight and I was supposed to work the next day. Fortunately I stopped by the CELEBI counter where Monika Taigiszer provided excellent customer service. After making a few calls she confirmed that my name was on the list and I would not have to worry. In Zurich I got my boarding pass and arrived to L.A. safely."
Pros: "The crew was good and the seat allocation and comfort was excellent."
Cons: "Food was below average. This needs to be improved otherwise it is not worth it."

Cons: "Change the variety of the food same as other airlines do"
Cons: "Poor customer service"

Pros: "left on the, arrived on time, crew were friendly and efficient, seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was a bit basic and in-flight entertainment was a bit limited, but on a 2 hour flight not a major problem"
Pros: "Crew was below average,seats was horrible"
Cons: "The plane needs to be upgraded immidiately,and crew needs to get a bit education in order to take and immidiate action to any situation during the flight"
Pros: "The crew was good and spent time attending to your needs. It’s what I’ve come to expect from Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "I was reassigned a new seat without notice. I later learned it was due to a malfunction in the seat or IFE system. Several seats seemed effected and broken. The boarding process was disorganized which is unusual for this airline."
Pros: "Good crew and friendly"
Cons: "Food was not good for lunch as if it was spoiled. I knew two others that did not eat I am 6.0 and seats were tight but that is common across all airlines"
Pros: "-Flight staff -Flight entertainment"
Cons: "-Last hour gate change -Parking lot instead of gate (both in Wien and Istanbul) -The answer of counter person about the crowdness"
Cons: "The flight was late, with no explanation."
Cons: "Had to stay overnight in the lounge zone. Hotel inside the airport wasn’t available. Outside you have to spend sometime at the multiple lines, buy visa, get the voucher, take the shuttle bus... By the time you done with that, it’s time to come back. Didn’t expect that for the business class ticket holders."
Pros: "The food was better than on the flight from LA. But wine was bad to say the least. Rest same as in the Flight from LA."
Cons: "The same as above and misguided by crew with regards to connecting flight. We had a bad time catching this connection. Even after disembarking the crew outside sent us on a wild goose chase. Airline representatives should be informed and helpful, which was not the case. Insufficient helping of food. Poor quality of wine and Vodka."
Cons: "Boarding was very annoying because when you go through security they make you feel like a total criminal for no reason. Checking our laptops as if we have something to hide. We already went through 3 security checks prior to boarding the flight. Security staff was extremely rude and inconsiderate for peoples belongings."
Cons: "Took them too long to pick up the trash ..."
Cons: "Late flight While in transit. They wouldn't pay for my meal in Istanbul because my overlay was 3 hrs"
Pros: "First Airline to harass me about the weight on my bag -- small carry on -- had to check kill me on time. The seats have no legroom -- my back is killing me. The internet could not take my money -- so I could not get'out crucial emails -- it seems like the service was more interested in collecting my email addresses and password -- instead to simply directing me to the payment method -- waste of time."
Cons: "Just about everything"
Pros: "Service and team"
Cons: "Plane was very warm and should be moderately air conditioned"
Pros: "AMAZING AIRLINE. Anyone traveling to this part of the world, fly Turkish!! Best international flight I have ever taken."
Cons: "I did not enjoy sitting right at the back (back seat). It was very cramped and noisy as people were constantly using the toilets. But not only that, there was a passenger seated in the middle seat who was not well and she kept feeling nausea and wanting help but the crew did not know what else to do having asked if there was a doctor on board. But they were not very gentle with her in their responses. I am not sure if this had anything to do with the fact that she was a muslim dressed in traditional gear."
Cons: "bus service to the plane"
Pros: "Airport, Service and much more"
Pros: "Fine, short flight overall. Crew was good, airplane comfortable, and the boarding process was fine."
Cons: "I expected more substantial dinner; perhaps because the one in the Venice-Istanbul flight was. The latter flight got beef/pasta choice, whereas the former one a tuna-fish sandwich."
Pros: "customer service, food, entertainment."
Cons: "small seats"
Cons: "This 13 hours and 5 minutes flight was extremely hot. Regardless of how many times we've asked the flight attendants to make it cooler for us, nothing changed. By the time, we get off my shirt was soaking wet. Imagine flying for so long under these conditions. What an horrible customer service!"
Pros: "The courtesy you gave all the passengers"
Cons: "The 14-hour trip that made it hard for comfort it wasn't your fault just a distance that I had to go"
Cons: "Signage at IST for transit should be better to explain security and passport requirements"
Pros: "If one puts seats in relaxed position, other travelers complain so why have the option of putting seat in relaxed position"
Pros: "I had a most pleasant experience flying from New York, NY to Kiev, Ukraine. Everything about the service was just right. Thank you for your kindness and attention to detail. From now on I will only fly Turkish Airlines when going to Kiev."
Pros: "Short flight with no issues."
Cons: "No problems--everything average."
Cons: "Everything was high level"
Cons: "The plane was old and the seat was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "I liked your services but I have 2 things The airplane Wi-Fi like nothing I didn't use it because just for Turkish news what the different !!! N 2 : this plane is not comfortable because the space between the chairs is too tiny of the other airline company But in general it's okay but we are not happy too much Thank you"
Pros: "Short but comfortable and pleasant flight."
Pros: "Cabin/ground crew was professional, nice."

Cons: "Traveling :)"
Cons: "They switched the gate without telling anyone"
Pros: "Crew were very nice and professional."
Cons: "One of our suitcases was lost. Well, fine, it happened. From Kyiv we went to Georgia for a week. In one or two days we received a text to come get it in the Batumi airport. We came there - nothing. Then next text - come get it in two days. When it finally arrived - it was torn. I don't know who to blame in the first wrong text, I don't know why and how the suitcase was lost, I don't know who torn it, but in general it was all very wrong and inefficient."
Pros: "Nice clean airplane. Lots of good food and amenities for the price"
Cons: "Staff is a bit rude"
Pros: "I like the fact that for almost 11 hours I was fed, entertained, and was able to rest. The flight crew was very hospitable and I would very much recommend it to others. The price was also very reasonable, unlike United or some other major carriers. It says something about your airline when I decide to fly through Istanbul, coming from Rome, to go back to the US. It's a longer flight but it's a worthwhile one. Thank you and keep up the good work."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "There was no order or control when we got to the gate. Three lines were converging on one to get to the gate and no one from security or the airline was trying to have order."
Pros: "Turkish Air flight from Istanbul to NYC was fine but Turkish Air flight leaving Tashkent 8:15 am to Istanbul, May 29, was terrible. Although we had all been up from 5am to get to early morning flight and Tashkent air port has no services, stewardess ran out of coffee and repeatedly refused to get me, the person skipped, coffee, despite repeated requests for a first cup. Each time they refilled coffee, they started run from beginning of plane, and ran out by the time they got to the middle. Usually if someone gets skipped, they just go back and get a single cup, but this lady was determined not to. Never had this happen in 55 years of flying. Serious caffine deficiency."
Pros: "Food crew movie selection"
Cons: "Both flights were late and I missed my connection"
Cons: "Failed to offer me newspaer upon boarding....passed our seat flying with cart full of papers!"
Pros: "I have flight in many airlines and was my first expeticence with turkish airlines and it really was excellent. Nice service good planes."
Cons: "Need to have more variety in the food and entertainment on board"
Cons: "not enough food"
Pros: "The crew positive attitude"
Cons: "We understand the COVID-19 crisis but a drink on board other than water will not have bid cost impact on Air Canada, for instance juice or cola,... Also, access on internet on board is now payable -$25 for the flight is exaggerated, it should be free knowing the limited number of passengers on board"
Pros: "On time and the staff were very good. The food was not great, buy good."
Cons: "Tried and was unable to choose my seat in advance for flight and thus had to wait until I arrived at the gate. Thus I was unable to sit with my daughter. Was promised seats could be chosen 24 hours in advance, but was not allowed to either on line or via phone."
Pros: "My meal request was better than during my Frankfurt to Abuja journey. I did not know the content of the food then."
Cons: "Flight delays were unimaginable"
Pros: "Entertainment and food was good. Pilot kept good communication with passengers. Some of the inflight crew were nice and willing to help"
Cons: "Some flight attendants should show more willingness to assist and help passengers. Boarding was a bit messy plus they changed boarding gate last minute. Flight was delayed almost one hr"
Pros: "Crew was great! Food was good! Boarding was fast and organized!"
Pros: "I like the price of the ticket ( thanks to KAYAK), the service on board was very good, everything on time and of course very convenient connection between Tampa and Frankfurt to fly to the further airports in Europe. Safety, security and service in good price. It is my favorite airline and rout."
Pros: "Airbus seats, n/a considering short flight"
Cons: "Some staff ignored us in our isle"
Pros: "Food was bearable"
Cons: "Delayed, the gate was changed 3 times."
Pros: "Food was Good, flight was without much stress and a little faster to compensate for the delay."
Cons: "Delayed boarding, no announcements, long wait in line for boarding, repeated delays. Not the first time - Every tome I use this flight it is delayed and without clear information to passengers how much delay is anticipated. Announcements, even if they come - come not loud, simultaneous with other announcements - so impossible to hear. Scheduled gate is moved every time too."
Pros: "Friendly staff.. Good food and as we had emergency exit seats there was plenty of leg room. Unfortunately no entertainment was offered on this flight."
Cons: "No entertainment. Plane was cold."
Pros: "There was no communication between aircrew and gate for transfers. There is a new additional check between gates and no passenger was informed. This security check was over an hour long. The flight was not held for me and other passengers and when we arrived at the gate they were oblivious of the fact that we had been held up in what seemed to be a Km long security line."
Cons: "I couldn’t eat the food"
Pros: "Attitude of staff"
Cons: "Food and delay"
Pros: "Excellent overall."
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."
Cons: "Boading priority was not possible, due to the massive amount of people crowding the entrance. Very hectic and uncoordinated boarding process. I always fly first row to be able to work with my laptop, however due to a last minute plane change the new A321 did not have a 1D or 1F, only 1A and 1C. I had booked 1D, but was moved back to 5D with absolutely no option to change back to the first row to finish my work. I had to sit sideways to be able to work, and it was extremely uncomfortable. I don't understand why they couldn't have moved me back to the first row and move the non-SEN/HON sleeping members back to 5D and 5F, or at least asked them if they would mind. The plane was massively late, and I missed my followup meetings at the airport."
Cons: "Very cramped legroom. Confusion during boarding."
Cons: "food seats were not equipped with personal TV screens"
Pros: "They made the experience enjoyable easy and I made me feel special"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "I am lactose intolerant and there were few non-dairy options"
Pros: "Great service, legroom economy, on time"
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "I was asked to give up my seat to make space for people to sit together. Being a single traveler I had selected a seat in the 2 seats side. But my new seat was surrounded by all kids. Couldn't relax a bit."
Pros: "Great service everyone was very accommodation. Enjoy the flight and the met some very interesting people. Althoght my flight to Kiev fro Frankfurt was delayed 20 minutes, and to take a bus to another plane, it wasn't that long of a wait."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Very long delays"
Pros: "Flight from Budapest to Munich was slightly delayed and I had a tight connection time to begin with. The effort the Lufthansa staff made to get me to me connection was heroic."
Pros: "I specifically booked this flight for the 8 hr layover so I could go downtown Munchen. the Plane was 4 hrs late leaving Edinburgh!! what is there to like? nothing."
Cons: "regardless of the late takeoff from Edinburgh, your boarding procedures are like a 3rd world airport. the food was 1/3 of a sandwich. that's food? no entertainment on board of course. why do I pay $500 for such flights? I'll go Ryanair from now on!"
Pros: "Again lufthansa crew one of the best out there thank you"
Cons: "No entertainment but I understand why short flight"
Cons: "flight was delayed. personal works very slow"
Pros: "Arrived on time, crew was friendly, was pleasentelly surprised that they are serving food on such a short flights in Europe."
Cons: "Boarding was bad. Gates werechanget multiple times (morethan twice) had to walk back and force, back and force thtoughehole terminal B"
Pros: "GOOD food, service was fine. Seat had good room."
Cons: "My seat didn't stay back (would lock) and kept me from getting much sleep. But, ultimate reason for mediocre rating was the level of turbulence. very bad - maybe not airline's fault, but still it was unpleasant."
Pros: "The Lufthansa help desk fairly quickly resolved the ticket and boarding pass problems."
Cons: "That it was still necessary to use the help desk to get aboarding pass, although they were totally professional and resolved the issue."
Pros: "Convenient schedule, excellent service, good food, all-around positive experience."
Pros: "on time service"
Pros: "Airplane crew was nice and I was surprised(in a good way) by them giving to passengers sandwiches as a snack."
Cons: "So I actually had a flight that departures at 9:50 AM and it was connection flight after I got to Frankfurt at 9:00, but I missed it cause other gates were too far and moreover Lufthansa staff were not so nice to help me out. Actually, I was running there and got to the gates at 9:40 AM but air hostess said that I've already missed it. They said that I had enough time and that's my fault - I even should be thankful that I don't pay for another flight that I am going to be flying in 7 hours. Bottom line: I got to Kiev at 9:20 PM and moreover, the flight landed 30 mins late. It never happened to me, despite I've been more than on 25 flights. I am shocked by employee's behavior and the situation in general. Would never recommend Lufthansa airline to anyone."
Pros: "Great staff and thoughtful professional attention makes travel better!"
Cons: "There were some spaces and I might have done a modest upgrade but not offered when asked at check in."
Pros: "Of course, a short flight, but the sandwich was fresh and staff helpful. Thank you."
Pros: "The service was very good throughout the whole trip."
Cons: "on purposely made passengers miss connecting flight and did not genuinely try to help. Everybody follows so called policy like a robot regardless the circumstance. An airline with no feeling and emotion. Arrogant and don't care about passengers."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Pros: "everything is good!!!"
Pros: "Checkin was timely and the agent helpful!"
Cons: "The immigration line was way too long in New Delhi."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Not much in the way of snacks"
Cons: "Seats are hard"
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Excellent service and good food. New plane with bathrooms a few steps below the seating area made for a quieter flight with no lines in aisles. We paid extra for Economy seats with extra leg room and it was well worth it."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful. Food was very good and appropriate amount."
Cons: "My seat would not recline. I even asked for assistance, which was given, but no luck. Sitting upright made sleeping difficult."
Cons: "Food is looking not fresh and quality is cheep ...."
Pros: "yes, seat is always ok , I'm not overweight"
Cons: "basically, nothing, just keep smiling"
Cons: "Comfort mostly"
Pros: "The crew was kind, the flight was on time and alll in all was just as expected."
Cons: "Food should be much better than this. Otherwise everything is ok."
Pros: "Amazing leg room, free snack and drink, free wi-fi."
Cons: "Not a lot of legroom in my Premium Economy seat (10C). Seat itself just OK, the high price isn't justified. This flight is usually about one hour late and it was."
Pros: "I was able to get good seats, front of the plane. 3rd row for all my flights. pretty decent leg room"
Cons: "flight was delayed, 2nd Austtian flight delayed in the same day"

Pros: "The crew was helpful with tips for Vienna"
Pros: "Fast flight , friendly staff , ok food"
Cons: "I couldn’t push my seat back and because of that I was awake the whole flight (night flight)"
Cons: "The plane was HUGE, too big. With such a big plane the crowd formed by the gate waiting to board was unmanageable. Also the giant plane felt like it was hard to maneuver during take off and landing. I would very much prefer a smaller plane. The touch screen in front of me was not always responding when I tried to tap the screen. The audio jack was also not working great; sometimes I did not have audio in my right earbud and I had to turn and fidget the plug. The earbuds provided by the airline did not even work when plugged into the screen, I had to use my own earbuds."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s/Austrian Airlines’s idea of a ‘snack’ is a pathetic little bag of sugar and chemicals that no one should have to be offered, even if it comes for free. Hugely disappointed. Flight attendants not attentive enough, and it took forever for the flight attendant to come after I’ve pressed the call button. Overall impression: meh! First time flying Austrian, but next time I’ll probably book with their competitors if prices are similar."
Pros: "Love the A 380-800"
Cons: "Out luggage did not make it to Houston from Frankfurt. We were late from Vienna but Lufthansa held the plane and extra 30 minutes in Frankfurt so that the baggage could make it from the feeder flights and it still didn't. We were promissed out luggage on Sunday evening. No one called and as of Monday morning no news."
Pros: "The stewardess is very polite and accommodating n"
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "Crew were amazing"
Cons: "Delayed at boarding Delayed inside plane No entertainment No room for my long legs - no option"
Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "No one available nor willing to help with checking process. Told to just try the checking machines."
Cons: "They lost my bag and refused to deliver it to my house once it was found. It is still at the airport"
Pros: "Short flight and got a snack"
Cons: "Boarding was a hassle"
Pros: "Not a long run."
Cons: "Seats too too tight. Uncomfortably tight."
Pros: "Organized orderly boarding. Food was snack only. Flight crew was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Very orderly fashion onto boarding"
Cons: "My suitcase got destroyed"
Pros: "I would suggest to make up some how for my lost as I had other problems derived from missing my United Airlines but so far every body has been very understanding. For example selling me a new ticket at a special price or with some benefit - I WILL NEED TO FLY TO VIENNA AND KIEV AGAIN WITHIN 6 MONTHS - otherwise; I doubt I would ever buy a Austrian plane ticket again. I AM FLYING ON POLISH AIRLINES RIGHT NOW OCT 25TH."
Cons: "When I try to make the change of itinerary on Austrian Airlines on the selling web page, they told me to contact the Austrian Airlines, so I did. The Austrian Airlines lady who told me that I would just lose my tickets and that I could not even pay a penalty to avoid such thing, was very VERY RUDE!! As the Austrian Airlines did not offer me an option but losing my plane ticket,"
Pros: "Everything. Keep up the good work."
Pros: "Flight Attendants super friendly as well as ground staff in Salzburg."
Cons: "Seats a little tight."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, on time"
Cons: "Crew's attitude for any request was snobby and harsh"
Pros: "Boarding time and arrival were both on time. Service is courteous, and the lounge very pleasant."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Austrian Airlines and Lufthansa."
Pros: "The plane arrived at destination ahead of schedule."
Cons: "€40 for a single 12 kg checked bag--that could have been gate checked? Seems excessive to this traveler."
Pros: "Everything was excellent!"
Pros: "Plenty of food and drinks, pleasant crew"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "We were advised to arrive at the gate 45 minutes before departure. We waited an hour and a half more until we boarded. The plane was late on arrival but there were no announcements. No one knew what was going on or when we would board. There was no food served whatsoever. Just beverages. There was no entertainment."
Pros: "The flight attendants were beautiful"
Pros: "Seats, crew, nice plane"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Random boarding,"
Pros: "They offered passangers ti move to raws that wete half empty so we will have more room."
Pros: "Right on schedule!!"
Cons: "Oversold the tickets on my flight and put me on standby. Needed to change the flight and all my plans."
Pros: ".The crew was pleasant"
Cons: "The flight attendants did a satisfactory job of distributing meals and snacks only if you were awake during their service round. I was resting on one occasion and missed the snack. I was total ignored when I asked for a serving. The boarding process was disorganized and the flight was delayed about an hour. Seat way too small for transatlantic. I weight 62kg and was sitting in a middle seat. Next time I'll have to get an upgrade."
Pros: "The boarding and exiting of the aircraft was smooth and organized. I really do prefer that passengers be strictly monitored when boarding the plane according to their seats. It really does make sense to board the plane from the rear forward. I realize airlines feel like they have to make their business class passengers feel special, but it really doesn't make sense for passengers to be climbing over one another."
Cons: "I left my entertainment at home in a mad rush to depart which is very unusual for me. As a result, I had to rely on Austrian Airlines' copyright licenses, and they were less than satisfactory. Fortunately, I'm flying back with Lufthansa, so I hope there will be more variety there. The lavatory at the back of the plane was filthy by the end of the flight. I don't understand why the flight attendants feel to good to clean the lavatories for their passengers. We are stuck on a flying can for 9-10 hours and deserve to have clean lavatories during that time. At one point, I was thirty and approached the back of the plane. When I entered the rear galley, the ladies looked at me like I was intruding. If self-service is not available for passengers, then flight attendants should be prepared to serve their customers."
Pros: "The service was fine, although I suggest that Austrian Airlines will consult with someone who joj is to train the staff to be more efficient."
Cons: "The food was bad."
Pros: "Never again with KAYAK. Sorry."
Cons: "Less than 24 hours notice."
Cons: "You didn't let me sit next to my partner"

Cons: "Too hot inside cabin , seat belt didn't work. Crew was great !!! Flight went smooth."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and the in-flight entertainment was great. The food was also good."
Cons: "There were no power outlets."
Pros: "Flight and the crew!"
Cons: "Staff at the airport pushing you to upgrade to first class but not making it clear only the first trip from Athens to Amsterdam which the first class uses same uncomfortable seats as the economy to pay extra 130 euros ridiculous airfrance stuff! I should have flown all the way to NYC first class!!!"
Pros: "The crew were excellent and seats were comfy."

Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Unexpected refueling stop. 2 hr delay Lost connection Reached destination after 18 hr delay"
Cons: "lost baggage"
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Pros: "Very good service, teh flight attendants made it as pleasant as possible, plane left on time"
Cons: "tough to sit on a plane for 9.5 hours"
Cons: "Too much light in the cabin because of too many screens on. Should have a separate part of the cabin with screens off allowing one to sleep more easily."
Cons: "old screens and entertainment system leg room to small"
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: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Pros: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Evening snack was not the greatest breakfast was pretty food"
Pros: "Crew was great, very nice"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Cons: "We did not get two of baggage at the destination."
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."
Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Food was good!"
Cons: "Have no complaints"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful personnel."
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight"
Cons: "Flight was not on time and got to destination very very late pier management of aircrafts"
Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"
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."
Cons: "Very slow service. I wanted to by several goods from duty free. But crew served only first 20 rows of aircraft."
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Pros: "They flew full speed to catch up with the delays."
Cons: "Departure was scheduled with one hour delay. When everyone was boarded they mentioned a leaking toilet. It took them 1,5 hours to disable the toilet. In the mean time, no drinks, no snacks, nothing. So we should depart at 18:00 but it became 19:30. Our first drinks and meal was no earlier then 21:00. The crew should have anticipated better that the technical problem would at least take one hour and give everyone a drink at least."
Pros: "...The transfer at JFK was terrible"
Pros: "The service of the crew onboard"
Cons: "Entertainment not to many recent movies and the boarding process was a little bit confusing."
Pros: "There's almost no padding to them and they're very narrow. I know it's nothing new but I'll keep complaining until something changes, if ever."
Cons: "The crew was wonderful, the food was extremely good for economy cabin standards."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Pros: "Even for a 50 minute flight, drinks and sandwich was provided"
Pros: "Services were appropriate for the time of departure and length of the flight."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "I flew with multiple international airlines this summer and KLM was by far the best. The crew of KLM were exceptionally attentive, polite, and helpful. The meals were by far the most enjoyable of my airplane travel meals; and I learned that KLM does not charge for it's drinks on international flights, unlike most other international airlines that I traveled with this summer. In a sentence, flying with KLM was a very pleasant experience and I will recommend this airlines to others."
Cons: "If I were going to list any negatives, I would say that the little travel pillow that was given to the passengers was so thin that it was practically useless, but I brought my own with me, so I was none the less comfortable."
Cons: "KLM sent us to Kiev thru Stambul (Turkey). We have spent 8 hours more on flights."
Pros: "It was a KLM flight so good"
Cons: "Could not select seats in advance even as a Platinum level Air France / Skyteam card holder as it was purchases as China Southern."
Pros: "Crew polite and efficient"
Cons: "No leg room. The box underneath the seat in front makes it impossible to stretch your legs. The arm rest lifts only to 45 degrees which is useless. No way to gain some lateral space there."
Cons: "My girlfriend were scheduled to come back from Marrakech together (albeit on separate reservations), however KLM could not find her reservation in their system and would not let her on the plane. I had to leave her behind in Marrakech. KLM had the audacity to ask her to purchase another ticket, even though she clearly had a valid reservation (how else would she had gotten to Marrakech in the first place?). After arguing with KLM for many hours, they finally booked her on a flight the following day, but refused to put her up in a hotel for the night, or compensate her for the trouble. Completely irresponsible behaviour from KLM. Will never fly with them again."
