Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was really great and helpful"
Cons: "Only thing that could have been better was ginger ale."
Pros: "Seats very comfortable; real feather pillow! Everything was on time."
Cons: "Breakfast consisted only of sweet items -- I didn't touch it."
Cons: "Just except very bad to reserve 24h before by phone impossible to have the number call call geneve airport it was ile fidji a d south pacifica impossible to understand i speak french andlittle english perfortunatly my kids live princetona d boston Thank.you merci yvette ruggeri"
Pros: "The food was the best I've had on any airline in recent times. On the first flight it was a croissant and a swiss chocolate, on the second flight it was a hot danish pastry."
Cons: "The first flight was late so I was worried I'd miss my connection (however connection was delayed too so I made it). Also, I was asked to check in my bag because "the aircraft was full" however when I got on the plane I noticed it was half-empty and there would have been ample overhead room."
Cons: "Very hot on board"
Pros: "Good food and beverage options. Many movie and television selections."
Cons: "The seats were too close especially when reclined. The lady next to me got into an argument 3 times with the man behind her and no one assisted the situation. The second security check needs a better signifier that it was done. It almost made me and another man miss our flight. Miserable attendants"
Pros: "The crew was polite and we arrived safely."
Cons: "The seats are like torture devices. So small and uncomfortable. After 14 hours of travel, my knees were sore from jamming into the seat in front of me, and I'm only average height. When the person in front of you puts their seat back, their headrest is practically under your chin. A disgrace."
Pros: "Short flight, no entertainment. They still offer free snacks on short flights, a plus, but it was an almost frozen cheese sandwich. A Little bag of pretzels would be better. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Boarding is confusing. Bad lines, unorganized, and people pushing. They should probably come up with a better system."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and very good. They served the evening meal very promptly. They could have made another trash run prior to everyone trying to sleep for the night flight."
Cons: "The coach seats are narrower than any I have encountered and they are very close to the rows in front and behind. Not comfortable at all."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful & friendly"
Cons: "The a/c or fans were on too high"
Pros: "good availability of food"
Cons: "seats did not have much space at all. Legs constantly squished and there was no room to move them the whole trip. not much movie selection available."
Cons: "Not enough sandwiches for all passengers on board Seat rows very close together, no way to avoid contact with seat in front"
Pros: "TV screens and movies. Food was great."
Pros: "Quick, clean, flight."
Cons: "Boarding delay due to mechanical problem. Line to board was more like a mass of people trying to squeeze through all at once and surprisingly disorganized. Somehow managed to board quickly, though."
Pros: "The movies were good, the food was good. Servers were kind and helpful. Clean and overall positive flight."
Cons: "Several delays and gate changes."
Pros: "The attendants were great. Flight was clean and nice."
Cons: "Moved us from gate, which was super hot and not air conditioned first thing in the morning evidently. Also, not enough seats for everyone on the flight. Then we were squished onto a bus to go to the plane. Upon arriving in Naples we were once again squeezed into one bus- every passenger! Very tight. 2 buses would have been nice."
Pros: "Good breakfast"
Cons: "Bad seat, just an economy seat"
Pros: "Crew was great. This flight is what I would expect from Swiss."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Paying for WiFi."

Pros: "Pretty much on time even with snow conditions!"
Cons: "Coffee was pretty much cold."
Pros: "Flight itself was good, comfortable, staff were professional"
Pros: "I really liked the "About my flight" application on the viewing screens because it always gave me an idea of what we were flying over and how much longer we woulld be in the air. The food was excellent and I was pleasantly surprised that I could have wine with dinner or any time the attendants offered beveragess. The attendants were always professional and helpful. They all were fluent in English as well as several other languages. It was a nice touch when the attendant wore white gloves when he or she was collecting passengers' trash after meals and/or beverage service. I loved the cheese that was served at dinner."
Cons: "My seat was a little confined when I put my carry-on bag in front of me on the flight to Zurich, but it was roomier when I stowed my carry-on in the overhead compartment on the returtn flight."
Pros: "The crew was both fun and efficient. The food was definitely a step ahead of American owned airline companies. Very good choices of movies and entertainment."
Cons: "We've got no complaints."
Pros: "Very little legroom, food was excellent"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Seats, food , entertainment."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Waiting in line in NYC for take off was about 50 minutes. Small seat space with annoying passengers who watch movies all night with bright screens or push and press my seat all the time. Earplug is uncomfortable, breakfast is plain, hot chocolate is horrible. It was a full flight and we even lost my daughter's cardigan."
Pros: "Loved the crew and movie options, the hydrating must in the bathroom was awesome!"
Cons: "I wish the seats were more comfortable"
Pros: "nice staff."
Cons: "lack of space. being in middle row."
Pros: "Food great!"
Cons: "Limited space , very narrow and not very clean. I seated next to a dog, pet. The whole trip the dog was sitting on the floor next to me:(, although it was a very quiet and good dog. Crew not very friendly . They were tired I believe ."
Cons: "Don't like to wait for no one 30 min inside airplane"
Pros: "I got ill on my flight to Zurich and the Swiss Flight Attendants attended to me like true professionals. They made sure I was comfortable until we landed which meant the world to me considering I was SO far away from my home. I'd like to especially acknowledge Frank, one of the attendants, who sat next to me to make sure I did not feel alone while I was sitting in the back with ice on my head, and felt like the world was spinning. He was my point of trust and warmth. That was not only extraordinary service, but human compassion at it's finest. Furthermore, the head attendant, who's name I could not get in the haze of the flight, escorted me from the plane to the cart who took me to the lounge to recover until my next flight. Thank you, Swiss Airlines, for having employees who knew how to triage my illness, and took care of me like family would. I appreciate it greatly and will surely be booking all my future European flights on Swiss. Please extend my gratitude to the flight crew on my Athens - Zurich flight on 5/28."
Pros: "The price, the timing, friendly yet professional staff & crew"
Cons: "Seats are way too close together for comfort."
Pros: "Registration and baggage check was fine, no line to wait im. The flight was moderately full. Good food and beverage service (although Lufthasa is a bit better)."
Cons: "Zurich airport dining facilities are poor - no choice of warm food and pricey."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants. Clean planes."
Cons: "Seat pitch too small-no room. Food was not good. Outdated entertainment movies"
Cons: "I did not get a check in reminder email which I thought was strange. I tried checking in and received an error message. I contacted customer service by email and was told I was all checked in. Assuming no issues I went to airport to find out it was canceled. I did not receive an explanation. I waited in line for two hours before speaking to a representative. Was made to feel like it was my fault I hadn't worked things out while waiting in line-"didn't you receive an email!?" I was told no other options except to leave the next day. I pulled up many other flights out of Venice that would get me home in time and was told that there simply were no other options. The real explanation was that Swiss didn't want to pay out to get me home in time. I had to pay more money to get back into the city rather than sit in airport for 12 hours."
Pros: "Same as on top"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Boarding and staff okay"
Cons: "Terrible plane ; no room , the most miserable flight we have ever been on"
Pros: "Overall this was an average international flight. But the crew and food made up for all the short comings. One of the most amazing crews I have ever experienced....and food was surprisingly delicious...even ice cream. they visited frequently with water and tea. We're friendly accommodating and fun everything that you want in a crew."
Cons: "Cramped coach seats and pretty boring movie selection.The double checking and multiple lines at boarding was a ridiculous but perhaps it's required"
Pros: "I appreciated the big meal, dinner, about 2 hours into the flight. Nice to have real metal utensils, not plasticware, to eat with. The 'breakfast' for the overnight flight was more of a throwaway: muffin, granola bar, fresh fruit cup. Nice to get wine, or maybe beer(?), with dinner at no extra charge, served from regular wine bottles, not individual-serving containers."
Cons: "$35 per flight leg (Lufthansa policy) to choose seats was distinctly annoying. I didn't know when I booked the flights, so the surprise $70 add-in (for round trip definitely would have figured into the price/schedule choice in the first place."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good food"
Pros: "The crew was terrific, the pilot provided us with lots of good information, and though the plane left late, it arrived on time."
Cons: "The seats are configured exactly opposite the human back. Clean, new, but very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I am a big guy but the interior of this plane is laid out for more room than commuter flights are in the States. The window seats sit further off the wall so there is room for my shoulders to not be forced into the wall."
Pros: "The flight was quick. Overall a smooth and pleasant one. I didn't have any real interaction with the crew except to exchange the usual pleasantries of saying hello and goodbye. So to be fair, I can't rate the level of service provided."
Cons: "The flight was fine, unfortunately, there was nowhere to sit at the gate. The majority of passengers stood about waiting or sitting on the floor since the few seats located at the gate had been taken. A five or 10 minute wait would have been one thing, but a 45 minute wait is another, particularly if there are older passengers or small children who have to wait."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and efiicient."
Cons: "Only negative was not related to the flight. I had a difficult time on the website getting checked in ahead of time."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and trying their best."
Cons: "The boarding process was quite bad. Apparently their computer system was not working. Waiting, delays. Also, although it was absolutely not necessary they took our carry-on-s with the check-in luggage. Disappointed. First time with Swiss and I though Swiss in general are more organized. But no."
Pros: "I was as comfortable as l could be, the trip home was very satisfactory"
Cons: "I was ill going to Zurich"
Pros: "Some of the crew were amazing and some were grouchy and not very helpful"
Cons: "For such a LONG flight, grateful to ask Turkish Airlines to make available bigger aircrafts."
Cons: "Room temperature control should be better."
Pros: "Yes.The crew was amazing"
Cons: "To have a variety of foodstuffs especially the soft drinks. Hot Tea wasn't really hot.Just warm."
Pros: "Entertainment, and crew was nice"
Cons: "Seats and food. I had a dietary restriction (no dairy). But instead of giving me poached chicken and boiled potatoes be more creative and put more flavour. It’s lactose free not flavour free"
Pros: "Reliable, high quality service"
Pros: "NOTHING. Never made the connection."
Cons: "Flying your passengers to your hub so they can make their connecting flights, for a start..."
Cons: "I will never forget Turkish airlines again. They stole our money. We were at our flight on time but they wouldn't let us board. They then said we were no shows and cancelled all our remaining flights with no refund. This ended up costing us around $3000. We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "They pack biz seats in 7 across. Most airlines go with 6 across. Lack of space and they charge the same as other airlines. Low value for the money charged. Much better value using if you use any other airline."
Cons: "This flight seems to be overbooked a lot! Why does Turkish Airlines let this happen so often? Had the same situation on my way to Istanbul. It just takes sooo much time and everything will be delayed and people get angry all along...."
Pros: "I had empty seats next to me"
Cons: "The guy that checked me in was very rude and wasn’t smiling at all and then he showed my passport picture to his colleague and they both started laughing. I was trying to use the restroom on the plane but there was a person in there for a long time; I waited outside patiently and then when I got in I brushed my teeth and used the toilet. It didn’t take me that long but the flight attendant knocked hard on the door but she didn’t do that for me with the other guy. I didn’t feel welcomed at all from the crew honestly."
Cons: "Boarding. The gates were cheep changing. Poor room between seats."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Cons: "At boarding they went in two stages. First stage they called people to board by category first people that needed more time then families with small children etc. HOWEVER, the put all of us in an intermediate room and the door to the gate was closed. They passed everyone so when the gate door opened everyone were trying to get to the gate and there was no order. That was stupid to say the least. Turkish could have waited the couple of minutes needed to get the gate open!!! and save the hassle!"
Cons: "Had a layover in Toronto. From Toronto we flew to Istanbul and then Venice. While waiting in line to board in Toronto, I was told my carry-on luggage was too big and needed to be put under. I asked MULTIPLE times where my luggage would be- either Istanbul or Venice (final destination) and EVERY time I asked, I was told my luggage would be waiting for me in Venice. Once we arrived in Istanbul I asked AGAIN if my carry-on luggage was here or if it would be in Venice and I was told it would be in Venice. Once we arrived in Venice, my luggage was nowhere to be found. The lost luggage crew (and 90% of the people in Venice) were completely rude and acted like we were a huge inconvenience for them. (I've heard that many Europeans cannot stand Americans, but we were not being rude or obnoxious at all to anyone- we just wanted a quiet, romantic vacation.) So safe to say that it was an extremely rough start. We were in Venice for the Glass Art Society Conference in Murano and due to my luggage being lost, had missed the first day and a half, therefore wasting hundreds of dollars. Luckily my boyfriend's phone worked in order to spend our first two days of vacation (not to mention the amount of money spent on international calling costs) tracking down my luggage, but again dealt with completely rude people who barely helped us with any answers and even hung up on us multiple times (and I'd like to add that despite my frustration, I made sure that I was not speaking rudely one bit). The best answers we received were from the people at the Istanbul airport who told us that Venice received my luggage hours before I even called Istanbul- which I do not understand why the Venice airport did not tell me this because I spent all day speaking with them. Once I called back the Venice airport to confirm what the Istanbul airport told us, they said (once again rudely) that they called me on my phone but did not answer (which I already told them that my phone did not have any service and to call my boyfriend's phone number). So to sum up: I will never be flying to Venice ever again."
Pros: "Attaturk airport, nothing about the flight itself"
Cons: "Rude staff & flight attendants."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Shake all the time,vomited"
Pros: "Excellent crew service & food/beverage offerings"
Pros: "Great to watch live sports. Loading was fine. Food terrible. Staff ok."
Cons: "Istanbul airport is so overpriced, crowded and small."

Cons: "They lost my luggage, and this is not the first time either"
Pros: "Overall flight is good"
Cons: "The crew is really not aware of how to deal with passengers of various levels. They don't seem to have the sense of responsibility..."
Pros: "Luggage policy, helpful ground and air crew. Price."
Cons: "IST stoppover, damaged luggages."
Cons: "I was selected to seat near the window before departure dare unfortunately i found my self in the middle of the people, so dissapointed"
Pros: "Everything. Clean plane, cool cologne and lotion in spacious bathroom. Crew was super friendly, helpful and accommodating to us travelers w kids."
Pros: "There was almost nobody on the flight. In flight entertainment was awesome too."
Cons: "departure time changed 3 times"
Pros: "Flight was smooth. Staff were helpful and professional."
Pros: "The food is great, nice entertainment, we good travel essentials!"
Cons: "One of the crews looked a little grumpy. I was referring to the lady who was handing out food. She was not at all happy everytime she serves the meal."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and everything was good"
Cons: "Lost my baby stroller and didn't found when arrived"
Pros: "They put a fabric pad on the seat to make it softer . I'm 6' and was comfortable. They have nice children's toiletry kits. Great entertainment system, tons of movies and shows."
Cons: "If you sit the the second cabin on the 777 they run out of buns and champagne by the time they get to you which is unacceptable for business class and they only finished the meal service 2 and a half hours into a 10:30 pm departure flight which is way too slow. They tried to lie to me that they didn't have champagne but I saw them opening 2 bottle when I went to the front lavatory. Between meal services crew is non existent."
Cons: "Harassment caused in providing wheel chairs for boarding Second flight to NY fm Istanbul. For two of us only one wheel chair was provided that too after making us stand for an hour as no seating arrangement s were available after landing from Mumbai."
Cons: "Could not order my special meal in advance, because of turkish airlines website problems, and ended up fasting"
Cons: "Didn't get to Instanbul or my destination of Budapest. There were mechanical Issues that I was told were weather issues. I was delayed over 12 hours, missed two connections and given the runaround about getting a place to stay for the night. The shuttle service provided took another hour at 2am! $47 to cover four meals and no mention of flight credit on my first leg for the HUGE inconvenience. A direct flight to Budapest a 27 hours after the fact is the best they could do and wanted to charge me a change fee too!! My vacation is cut short by this mess and my travel companions already in country are waiting on me to get their trip started. I will not be using Air Canada or Turkish air until they can communicate between one another and provide at least average customer service. So, it's safe to say that it will be the 12th of NEVER when I fly Air Canada"
Cons: "It never happened."
Cons: "Had a nine hours layover and I couldn't even entre the Turkish airlines lounge. The airport in Istanbul also had terrible wifi connection. I would not fly this route again"

Pros: "The quality of service is always on top, kindness and help is always when you ask..."
Pros: "Plane was clean. Crew was nice. Good breakfast."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Nice crew, clean seats, good food..."
Cons: "TERRIBLE customer service, barely spoke English over the pho ne. Bought the tickets on April 1 and immediately called to make a reservation for my dog. They made the reservation. Couldn't answer regulations for transporting pets, had to dig up rules and regulations online myself. Made a reservation the same day for the dog and they never sent a confirmation. Went to their office at Pearson and they had no clue as well. Two days before the flight they called to tell me my dog can't fly due to unknown reasons and created a MAJOR nightmare. I paid $400 for papers and cage for the dog only. Very very unprofessional and will NEVER fly with Turkish Airlines again!!!"
Pros: "I got such an amazing deal on this flight that I could barely believe how incredible my experience was. Will DEFINITELY fly Turkish Airlines again!!"
Cons: "No problems at all"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled then stood for hours in a line just for a hotel room. Then waited in hotel room till afternoon the next day with no news. Horrible way to handle customers"

Pros: "Easy flight and on time"
Pros: "Huge, new plane, lots of helpful crew, personal entertainment screen, chairs laid back more than typical"
Cons: "Window arm rest didn't move up, boarding was crazy because YYZ airport doesn't have the format to hold lots of people, how to board was a bit confusing, and turbulance."
Pros: "Professionali customer service. Food and beverage service very good and generous. Love the European hospitality."
Pros: "My trip was from IAH to FRA by Lufthansa flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours and resulted in missing FRA - DEL flight. No help at Air Canada with rebooking missed flight."
Cons: "Seats are cramped up"
Pros: "Ordered gluten free food but they were inconsistent about giving it to me. I received nothing until I asked multiple times after everyone was served then I had a normal meal slammed on my tray and flight attendant walked away. No apology or even a comment about what happened with my order. Flight attendant was rude although I was trying to be polite. We were lucky to have a spare seat between us and were comfortable for the flight. The entertainment system and the programming choices were quite good."
Cons: "Our boarding was scheduled for 1:45pm But crew arrived @ 1:45 And it took them 30 minutes to actually star boarding So we were 30 minutes late to Frankfurt and missed our flight"
Pros: "The service, nice clean airplane, decent food"
Cons: "During the over night time passengers we not offered any drinks, you had to go to the galley"
Cons: "The crew had an attitude."
Pros: "Super easy to book the flight,...easy check-in,...great experience"
Pros: "Plane A380 upper deck"
Cons: "Hindu Veg meal could have been better. Boarding area was very crowded for a A380 plane"
Cons: "Flight got delayed for 6 hours. Had to rebook next flight, increased one more stop and travel time."
Cons: "- long wait, no space, mediocre service, bad food and the worst thing was that I had rail and fly and didn't even get a ticket for the train. So I had to argue with the responsible person in the train. Furthermore they told me that I have to pick up my luggage at the train station as Lufthansa apparently had a counter right there but my luggage got out the normal luggage claim so I had to walk back and for in the airport. This was overall a really annoying experience."
Pros: "the crew were exceptionally friendly and helpful"
Cons: "the seats are really not comfortable....especially the angle of the head rest...."
Pros: "The Airbus 380 was large and smooth. The cabin service in business class was excellent."
Cons: "Everything was great except for narrow seats."
Pros: "Boarding was well done. Keeping the correct sections boarding at their proper time. The in flight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "Seats were very stiff. I have long legs and nowhere to put them. If you don't speak German you feel like a step child. Lighting turned on by the passenger to my left illuminated me while I was trying to sleep. No ability to control air flow. Got very hot sitting in the middle."
Pros: "Economy class seats are very tight and especially when the person in front tilts their seat back. Long flights can become very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight personal was very nice and Understanding. The food had a vegetarian Option which was very accommodating."
Cons: "I bought this flight months before the flight date and when I came to SeaTac to check in, I was told that I did not have a seat. The reasoning being because the flight was overbooked. That's not my fault and was very frustrating to have to wait for my seat, while everybody was boarding. Luckily, I still got overhead Storage for my backpack, but if not, then I would have been expected to just deal with it? All in all, it worked out, but it started out as a very frustrating experience. I hope that it won't be the same on my way back"
Pros: "Entertainment was good, lots of movies to choose from, good audio quality"
Cons: "Boarding was completely disorganized. They were calling groups based on the seat number but everyone was standing in line without paying attention to it and they were not enforcing it. So we ended up with a lot of people from the first rows boarding before the other and blocking everyone. Comfort doesn't exist anymore in Economy class, if you are taller than 5.9' your knees will touch the seat and you are squeezed in like cows. But that applies to almost all airlines nowadays."
Pros: "The service was very good. The dinner was surprisingly good."
Cons: "The seats are so cramped together...but no worse than any other airline. I had trouble finding the baggage ares in Frankfurt. The signs were confusing."
Cons: "The staff in the check in was not sure if i need a visa to enter Europe, viena and Frankfurt and i really explained that Albania is in shengen and we do have bio metric passport but they need to verify which took around 15-20minutes waiting there."
Pros: "It would be helpful to have the option to chose the meal in advance during online check in. At the gate I was told that one would need to make a phone call for that. Online would be easier,"
Cons: "The UA crew tries hard but a flight operated by Lufthansa feels more relaxed and more comfortable. Difficult to pin down the exact reason for that. Also: are those bag tag self-printout machines at UA / O'Hare really speeding up the process / cutting costs that much?"
Cons: "Service is poor, Food quality is terrible, Luggage handling is not provided from United airlines to Tunisair this inconvenient"
Cons: "I ordered a Kosher meal and I received frozen, even the water was solid frozen. I told the flight attendant when they recollected the trays and she took note to avoid the same mistake for Breakfast."
Pros: "Great. Flight. Great service. Great plane Thanks you Although there was a delay about 30-45 min."
Cons: "Didn't take that flight"
Pros: "Super easy to board; once I got on flight crew was helpful and very courteous; was expecting snacks, but instead was treated to a dinner with wine, breakfast and juice."
Pros: "sory, i am not good in english"
Cons: "delay in departure, if your fault"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "United has changed check-in to multi step process using Kiosks. Would not allow even 0.5 lbs over allowed limit of 50 lbs. for each individual bag, even though second bag was lower than allowable limit. I had middle seat in Premium Economy. My shoulders were pushing against persons sitting on each side. seat is 17" wide, my shoulders are over 20" wide. It was so uncomfortable that soon after take-off I moved to economy section for the only aisle seat available. The seat reclines only 5", so whether I reclined or not, the seat was very uncomfortable. The food served was way below par. TV dinner quantity was so little that I could have had 3 of those. Plastic cutlery of miniature size. Charged for alcoholic beverages (on transatlantic flight!!). Pleasant surprise was the availability of vegetarian option without pre-ordering before flight. For snack before landing, they served cold croissant. And they did not load one of my bags .... was supposed to be on the flight next day, but wasn't. So its been 2 days and I am still waiting on 1 of my 2 checked bags. And the wifi has not worked on any United flight so far for me. Way back in 2013 Turkish airline had working wifi and did not charge extra, unlike what United wants to do ... but they have to first get the wifi working. Flight immediately after was Lufthansa. Even though I consider Lufthansa now as a "has been" airline, it pains to say that Lufthansa was much more comfortable. Seats reclined much more than United making them relatively much more comfortable than United. Regular size steel cutlery. Alcoholic beverages (limited choice, no rum but had Dewars) served. I have flown many times on United from US to Europe and Asia. Last few years were mostly in Business Class and was very happy. I have accumulated over 200,000 miles in the last years and was a Gold status member with United for couple of years. But the cost cutting measures implemented by United in economy class over last few years puts it now on par with airlines like Frontier and Spirit in the domestic market. But the tix prices are on par with premium airlines. I will be avoiding United for international travel."

Pros: "Terrible seats and the worst in flight meal in my 50 years of commercial flying."
Pros: "Overall was fine."
Cons: "Plane was small. It was a United code share: United plane"
Cons: "Food was cold except the main course. Only one meal for trip for 11 hours ! The snak is very littile ! The crew was ok but not nice"
Pros: "It was too cold on the flight from IAD to FRA and two blankets were not enough...Also the food was pretty terrible. Finally I don't understand why Lufthansa doesn't honor gold members to have access to seat assignment other than 24 hours before the flight without pay..."
Cons: "Delayed flight , horrible management, manipulating customers"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and no intimation from the agents regarding this cancellation and thus got created big loss for us."
Pros: "I love the crew and atmosphere of the plane."
Cons: "I did not have my own vent fan for cool air."
Pros: "The crew, unbelievably kind, very professional and always smiling. Keen to serve and assist."
Cons: "Almost perfect."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. Plane interior was in new condition, including electronic window shade tinting."
Cons: "Staff was not particularly warm or attentive. Was never offered more to drink, and after asking for more wine was ignored."
Pros: "The best airline ever! Super friendly crew and staff, great customer service and nice planes. Love KLM!"
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"
Pros: "Nice crew, good food."
Cons: "Both bathroom were not working in business class area."
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Slow in refuelling, got us delayed for 40-"
Pros: "Crew was great, very responsive and hospitable!"
Cons: "more lunch choices, especially choices without dairy products."
Pros: "Crew were great"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. They adjusted the seating arrangements so there was an empty seat in every row to give passengers more space. Very thoughtful and much appreciated. They served delicious meals, snacks, and water. They provided headphones, blankets and pillows. They took very good care of us."
Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "seat reservation. having to pay for luggage...."
Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."
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 great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."
Pros: "Like the overall KLM experience"
Cons: "Food could have had better quality and the stewardess served it all at once versus in the various courses."
Cons: "The website I booked on and the Delta phone line on the printed ticket said that I had baggage when it turns out that I did not according to the check in staff and they made me pay."
Cons: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"
Cons: "Need more leg room!!! Larger meals needed."
Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding needs improvement"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat but it’s only a 1 hour flight so not a big deal."
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"
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."
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
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: "Snooth and efficiënt with a KLM service"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Nice flight ...was comfortable travel ...good food.Thanks"
Cons: "No such things"
Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist! She asked me to move from a seat because she wanted another guy ( obviously from her country ) to take it! Rude and racist."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Everting so good ex"
Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."
Pros: "The staff were professional and friendly The food was very good and plentiful The inflight entertainment has lots of choices The bathrooms remained clean All in stark contrast with BA with who I did the same flight 2 weeks ago and all the above points were very poor"
Pros: "Just great crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable at all and will not book KLM again."
Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."
Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy!"
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"
Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."
Pros: "quick boarding, responsive Airline stewardess, very polite."
Cons: "temperature control was not good, service was fine, seats were not comfortable. plane need to be cleaner."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."
Pros: "The staff and crew"
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
Pros: "captain was great."
Pros: "No entertainment or food needed on a half hour flight. Otherwise excellent."
Pros: "La ponctualité."
Cons: "Variété des boissons proposées."
Cons: "There was no amenities pack given in Premium economy. The food was ok. It would have been nice to have been offered another bread roll. Seat comfort was fine, but I kept getting hit by the separating curtain as the flight attendants went back and forth from economy."
Cons: "J’ai eu à payer un bagage supplémentaire sur internet à 160 euros. Mon compte a été débité et à l’aéroport de Dakar les agents au comptoir me disent qu’ils ne retrouvaient pas le payement du troisième bagage. J’ai été obligé de repayer le bagage comptant à 190€"
Pros: "I like the crew and their service, the food was amazing speacially the vanilla cheese cake desert was on point, loved it. I loved the “my flight “interaction on the screen and the different view of the plane, cockpit view, left, right etc.. amazing feature."
Cons: "The seat could have been much better as far as reclining and space. Overall I loved the flight."
Pros: "The crew was astounding"
Cons: "The best airline what I was flying so far !! Excellent food, drink, comfort seat, free entertainment with great selection."
Cons: "the tray was broken and the water felt all over. the flight was 1 hr delayed. All of us stood the 1 hr waiting to know what's next. We could sit."
Cons: "They made me check my carryon rolly which is allowed on every other plane in the world, which meant going all the way back into a chaos of hundreds of people to check in. Because I had a connecting flight to New York in London, the check in caused many problems...and everything inside soaking wet"
Pros: "It was very comfortable and pleasant."
Cons: "Could be a little better the service, the dinner was late"
Cons: "Departure time was almost 2 hours late and the communication of the cabin crew regarding this issue was poor. Almost an hour went by without an update."
Cons: "More options for gluten free food. Always get the same dish"
Pros: "The entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Seats are so cramped. I'm 5'3" and could use either arm rest because both people on either side spilled into my seat."
Pros: "The food selection and drinks, given our coach class, were excellent. Nice attention to the passengers."
Pros: "The crew ask some of us to help seating a family group together. No objection. Then they went out of their way to make the trip more enjoyable for us... even offering a drink of Champagne wine (the true one, not some substitute)... Departed almost on time, arrived a few minutes early..."
Pros: "Red wine was excellent"
Cons: "Bright lights on throughout flight, would have been nice to dim lights for late night flight so passengers could rest"
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are the most brilliant idea!"
Cons: "After boarding began there was a backup after the gate en route to the plane. No explanation. The plane left an hour later than scheduled but seemed to arrive close to scheduled time."
Pros: "Fantastic Crew!"
Cons: "Seats are comfortable but tight."
Pros: "Air france crew at Mumbai Airport very rude and not supportive during checkin"
Cons: "Being in the middle of the 4 seats with guys on both sides. They tend to restrict the space by using the arm rests."
Pros: "The plain was ok, the crew really nice and attentive. The only “problem” would be the food, mostly for the breakfast that was awful."
Cons: "Missed flight due to lack of direction, last minute gate change and they shut door in our face after telling us they were holding plane"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Didn’t have the meal I ordered Got in 30 min early but no gate for us. We waited over 80min on tarmac to deplane I paid extra for an exit seat but there was no indication when I did that there would be walls for armrests and that made it very uncomfortable for me"
Pros: "Their evacution video is interesting"
Cons: "The aircraft is a bit old and somehow the flight crew didn’t offer me the full menu as the menu describe. First time encounter that in a business class"
Cons: "We were 2h late"
Pros: "It was a wonderful flight and service . Hospitality and welcoming."
Cons: "Nothing everything was amazing ."
Cons: "We paid for Business Class from JFK to TLV. The flight to Tel Aviv was in a small plane with 3 across seats that hardly reclined. We are most unhappy and will complain to American Express Platinum Card."
Pros: "The service was very professional."
Cons: "Everything went well."
Pros: "Priority boarding with kids"
Cons: "Nothing special just like easyJet ir Rayanair"
Pros: "The space and the people"
Pros: "The inflight service"
Cons: "The 3 hours delay"
Cons: "The airlines didn’t even notify the passengers with the connecting flight. As the arrival was little late, all the passengers have missed their connection flights in Toronto and there was no notification or communication made on the new flight. When I went to the Air France counter in the airport, the staff has gone for the day and trying to get a hold of telephone rep took 2-3 hours and I by the time I found about my new connection, I was already late. Somehow I managed to get to the Terminal 1 and when I spoke to the lady (indian) at the Check-In counter, she has refused me to Check-In because i slipped the line up. The people in the lineup didn’t have any objection and they let me go first for Check-In as I’m already late to my flight. I wante to say something to her, but I’ve controlled my frustration. Luckily the other person in the Check-In counter offered to help me Check-In. Here is my word to the Indian lady staff “F**k You B***h” - learn some people skills."
Pros: "The food, the service and everything else is fine, quite good."
Cons: "However, our baggages were 1 day late. Your missing baggages would deliver to you 1 day later, for some maybe 2 days later...Quite a few people said that it's been always like this with air Aeroflot if there is a transfer flight."
Pros: "Got pillow, blanket, headphone and eye cover"
Cons: "Older plane Very small tv screen Didn't get the bread roll with my dinner. Asked for it but she didn't bring it to me. No usb plug to charge"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "It was one problem after another during check in. And it was difficult to find help in English so I couldn't really tell what was going on. In the end I was tucking to get checked in because they were insisting I use a kiosk but I was telling them that the kiosk said to see an attendee. It was not efficient and I felt like a burden asking for help when there was nothing else I could do on my own."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, I was sent around to multiple desks and terminals and no one wanted to assist me, then my luggage was lost."
Pros: "That it was a night flight"
Cons: "No airconditioning, no food choice, no space."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and polite, both beverages and an excellent lunch was offered."
Cons: "A delay was not ideal but nothing to worry about since the flight arrived on time."
Pros: "Friendly crew and exit row had nice legroom."
Cons: "Ran out of the (already not sufficient) salty crackers and, as the flight had been delayed, we had a one packet of cracker 'lunch' at noon... the flight really should have had a sandwich or at least something slightly more substantial."
Pros: "The fact that the plane made it to SFO"
Cons: "Downgrade without notice or consent separating family. Paid full fare for family to travel business class together. AF without our knowledge downgraded one member, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. They offered no compensation, no apology, and CDG ground crew was terribly rude. All anyone said was, nothing to be done, now please Leave"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. Plus I didn't get my baggage at the end."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "The seats were terrible, the entertainment units were poor and staff was very reluctant to give proper service."
Pros: "Our flight attendant and fnally making it home!"
Cons: "Disorganized uninformed staff. One says I have to have an additional "random" security check after going through the same thing in security. Turns out it wasn't random and I didn't need it. Both times they read my boarding pass wrong thought I was going to Tel Aviv - not random. Airport was hot as hell! Flight kept getting delayed then we had a gate change as well. Finally got on the plane and it took forever to take off so we were basically sitting in a sauna for 30+ minutes."
Cons: "Bording far away, got my cabin luggage and everyone elses into the cellar because ¨it didn´t fit in the plane¨. There was plenty of room, I had breakable stuff in my luggage, didn´t get the chance to choose. No entertainment AT ALL. Confort: no leg space at all. Not an AirFrance plane, subcontracted. Lousy food."
Pros: "Excellent choice of movies. Great service. Friendly crew."
Cons: "I requested a lacto-ovo vegetarian meal, which I received. However, it appears the meal was also vegan. Normally, that would be okay except one of the two standard meal choices was also vegetarian and seemed much better. Since I had selected lacto-ovo vegetarian, it seems I was not allowed to select the standard vegetarian option. Hard not to have cheese on an Air France flight - just saying :-)"
Cons: "Couldn't adjust the seat and the cushion wasn't comfortable neither seat or back. The bottom back was like a board across the bottom and hurts."
Pros: "movies were great, watched a lot of them food, while nothing to write home about, was at least tasty and not inedible the staff was great, friendly, welcoming, hard working loved that we could have wine and snacks"
Cons: "we had paid for the exit row and had a luxurious amount of room. But when we tried to sleep, our fellow passengers came and stood at our feet and talked so loudly that we could not possibly sleep. They stayed there for more than an hour. Would have loved for the staff to maybe ask them to tone it down, if not move."
Pros: "The flight went smoothly from boarding to landing. The crew was helpful, kind, & courteous. I would definitely fly Air France again. Online check-in was also easy to follow and complete."
Pros: "Boarded 45 minutes late, and then sat in the plane for another two hours before take off due to a problem with the lie computer. Would have been better to spend that time in the terminal and given credits to buy food, etc. My seat was a regular seat (non exit) and the seat did not recline properly, the USB drive was broken, overall the plane felt unmaintained. The crew was friendly and food was good but I felt not enough was done to accommodate the extra hours we had to wait on the plane."
Pros: "should let first board passenger in rear rows and not everybody together."
