Pros: "Food, service"
Cons: "The space"

Cons: "Flight was a little warm but was able to get it cooler via help from crew but got warmer again towards the end of flight. Overall good flight though"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. It was my first time flying so I was a little nervous but they made me feel safe and welcomed. The friendly crew was honestly what made the whole experience great."

Cons: "The lunch part at the end was a little late we had just had a snack and a small sandwich so we didn't eat a lot. But food was great!"

Cons: "Flat beds on second flight"

Pros: "crew handled the tough crowd well, but were not extremely hospitable"
Cons: "food was disgusting"

Pros: "I can say all the crew was amazing"
Cons: "They are doing excelent job."

Pros: "Flight was full but crew was attentive and very pleasant. Star Alliance Lounge at LAX had a good variety of food and drinks - Asian, western, small bites, snacks; red, white, bubbly and even a bartender who'll mix up cocktails. I love flying SQ."
Cons: "For a premium economy service, it was really good."

Pros: "The crew was lackluster; unusual for Singapore Airlines. Tall individuals will not like the business class seats."

Pros: "I like everything crew, etc"
Cons: "Nothing reallly"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Non"

Pros: "They were polite."
Cons: "Not as attentive as ANA or China Airlines. I had to give 4-5 request to get what I want."

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Everything about this flight was top notch. The inflight entertainment, touch screen and remote controlled, was so good i was up the entire time watching movies Black Panther, Downsizing, DeathWish, Pacific Rim and listening to the wonderful library of music, i was surprised at the range of music, from uncensored rap to big band."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Loved the food/Movies/seats."
Cons: "No air vents and the cabin was very very stuffy and warm for many people. I’ve never heard one child cry for 7+ hours before until this flight. But everything else was decent to say the very least:)"

Cons: "The seat's recline button was broken which meant having to sit for 12+ hours upright. Upon hearing that the seat was broken, the airline crew offered my mother a check for 100 SGD (14% of the ticket value) to be used on Singapore airlines (for the discomfort caused for over 50% of the flight time). They changed her seat from Seoul to Singapore. When I wrote to them about it, they came back saying they had offered her a seat change from LA to Singapore, and she had declined, which is absolutely false. When I called that out, they said, maybe they did not offer aisle seats (note that the broken seat was not aisle). So it just shows that they don't want to accept that they messed up. They even told me that despite their best efforts in pre-flight checks, certain defects only surface when the flight is in progress. Will never ever travel on this airline again."

Pros: "Excellent attention to service and comfort."

Pros: "Staying in a hotel for 24 hours."
Cons: "Not actually making it to Japan."

Pros: "Friendly attentive staff. Excell ent food and great. Service."
Cons: "Really crowded seats in economy."

Pros: "Movie selection was great. Food was decent. Comfort was expected"
Cons: "Our seat neighbors were annoying, but nothing the staff can do about that!"

Pros: "Everyone was very attentive and nice. The leg room is decent ."
Cons: "Some of the food didn't taste amazing, would've like maybe a different choice other than salmon or curry pork"

Pros: "The main course"
Cons: "Items missing or substituted in the veg but was ok in regular meals. In one veg serving, no salad or dessert was included. Margarine instead of butter for only in the veg meal."

Pros: "I haven’t flown Emirates, but SQ beats the many others I have flown by a significant margin—especially the Chinese airlines, but also all major US airlines, JAL, Korean, et al."

Pros: "The serivce was amazing. Also it was clean and the food was great."

Pros: "Great crew, good food (best I've had on an airplane), plenty of drinks, and a good entertainment system."
Cons: "Nothing bad to say about this flight. Great airline."

Pros: "Crews were all nice, respectful and helpful!"
Cons: "I wanted to watch Indian movies, but I didn’t see the subtitles for most/all of them."

Pros: "Food and good service"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Excellent service. Good food. Very attentive and responsive flight crew."
Cons: "Space was too tight"

Pros: "I liked there was an opportunity to bid on an upgrade"
Cons: "Our bid was rejected yet there were empty seats in premium economy. Our bid was within the recommended range. You certainly would not have lost money upgrading us."

Pros: "To be honest I had a pretty bad flight because my allergies exploded during the entire flight - constant sneezing, runny nose, you name it. However, the attentiveness of the crew really made up for it. The cabin was decorated with tiny wreathes (so cute!), and the pillow/blanket was very comfortable/warm for an Economy seat. Although I did not use it as much, the entertainment seemed top-notch. And the crew-- they noticed that I was not feeling well, and offered me peppermint tea and snacks that did sooth things a bit (you can request for snack/beverage refills anytime!). I loved that they gave out black socks to the passengers too (I prefer taking my shoes off during the flight, so the socks added warmth & prevented my own socks from getting dirty). All in all, it was one of the best-serviced long flights I had, not to mention probably the most affordable price I paid for my annual trip to Korea (from LA)."

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Very good service! Lots of flight attendants and they were kind the flight was long, but mostly smooth. The entertainment was good and there was a lot of it."
Cons: "The flight map was a mess. It either said we had 115 hours of flying time or 3.5 hours. Also, it showed the plane pointing in the opposite direction that we were flying in. A minor issue, but weird."

Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable lay flat bed"

Pros: "Great service. Really friendly and polite. Lots of current movies and TV shows to watch and provided earbuds with adaptors. Made the experience a lot more pleasant."
Cons: "The seats can be laid bag pretty far and the people in front of me decided to recline for a majority of the 10 hour flight. I wish the chairs either didn't do this or the flight attendants would have said something. I didn't feel like I had the authority to do anything about it. Also it was so warm! I have no idea if there was a fan."

Cons: "My Vegan meal was terrible."

Pros: "The service and fast flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "the crews were very polite and very helpful"

Pros: "the selection was impresive to m"

Pros: "Ease of checking. Empty seat between us"
Cons: "Can't upgrade with krisflyer miles"

Pros: "Made Econ class feel like biz :)"

Pros: "The best long leg flight I've been on. I managed to get a whole row to myself and that made the 12hr flight so much better. The crew was very professional, kind, attentive, and it was grand."

Pros: "Customer service and food couldn't be better."

Pros: "Huge selection of movies Towel service, socks, and toothbrush for economy class Snacks included entire chocolate bars! Friendly staff"

Pros: "The service is amazing. The stewardess are always smilin and very helpful. If you'd like anything extra, just ask and they'll bring it right over. The entertainment onboard was top notch"
Cons: "I would have wished for better back supported seats. 14hrs on a flight isn't quiet the best."

Pros: "Professional, courteous, high-quality all around from food, to service, to entertainment options. Singapore Airlines is first class all the way."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "For medium range flights SQ uses A330s. Business class is really OK, not great. Each passenger can freely choose any configuration of the seat without inconveniencing others. Food is great, both in presentation and taste, and serve with refined courtesy... I will gladly fly on this aircraft again on my way back."
Cons: "The entertainment system has literally hundreds of choices -- many, many movies for all tastes under the sky. But there is one drawback. Each movie starts, not when you are ready, but when the system is ready ; you cannot pause, resume it, no fast-forward..."

Pros: "The flight attendants were super attentive and took great care of me, even bringing me headache medicine."
Cons: "I was in a front row seat which meant using my table in the armrest would wake up my neighbor. (Not a big deal but a little awkward) It was also hard to sleep because the seats didn't recline enough."

Pros: "It was the best service ive ever had. The flight attendants came right away and were always coming up the aisle making sure we eye well hydrated and fed"

Pros: "The flight staff were very friendly and always seemed to be eager to help all the passengers. The menu on the flight was also excellent. Wonderful flight"
Cons: "The layover in Japan was not exactly what I hoped for but I managed OK. Short layovers work better for me."

Cons: "Best service"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."

Pros: "On March 4, my wife and I made a flight from New York to Sydney with a transfer in Doha, Qatar. We flew the Qatar airline business class. Everything was great despite a very large flight. New plane, very clean. Wide comfortable seats turning into a large comfortable bed. Great menu and good wine list. All staff are professionally trained and very friendly. All this made this flight very comfortable and we were not tired."

Pros: "The 1-hour complimentary wifi."
Cons: "Hope they had the immigration/arrival card on the airplane."

Pros: "The crew provide good service but personally i did not like the food that could be lot better."

Pros: "The crew was super amazing and went to all extent to make our journey with infant comfortable"

Cons: "Sitting near bathrooms was a bit noisy and difficult to sleep"

Pros: "Went out of their way to be helpful"

Pros: "The service is Top Knotch!!!"
Cons: "Wasn’t much music to choose from..."

Cons: "Even though we landed in Doha before our connection left ( barely-20 min)on Qatar airways, they would not hold the connecting flight for the 7 of us who were connecting. This was extremely disappointing as we then lost a full 8 hours of our first day arrival. If they schedule you for a 45 minute connecting flight, I suggest you book a later one. Our flight from NYC left on time but was 20 min late landing. Their only compensation to us all was use of the airport lounge in Doha ( quite nice with free food wine and showers, but would rather have had the extra day in Bali."

Pros: "The bag with socks and toothbrush with paste was a nice touch. The flights operated on time! The seats were fairly comfortable for coach class."

Pros: "The food was great with three options for each meal and there were a lot of options for in flight entertainment"

Pros: "Staff was courteous. Food wasn't too bad. Plane was clean and modern. Ambiance was relaxing. This was a very pleasant flight compared to other airlines."

Pros: "Good service!! Good food!! Great staff!!"

Cons: "Service is always bad. This time from bag, all electronics have been stolen. It is 200$ worth things have been missing from my baggage."

Pros: "Great hospitality"

Pros: "It's was good"
Cons: "The plane from Qatar to Nairobi new modern plane needed"

Pros: "Boarding and crew were excellent."

Pros: "Quite journey"

Pros: "Okay"
Cons: "Okay"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The professionalism of the staff"
Cons: "No comment"

Cons: "- Airline changed flight and offered little forewarning for what was a material change (from 1 hour transit time to 9 hours) - Boarding process was inordinately slow with little attempt to move this along quickly - Service was halting at best"

Pros: "Services"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Everyone on duty!!"

Cons: "Food options on both legs were terrible. On the first leg, only one of the three options was actually available. I understand that you have to account for varied decisions by customers, but only having one of the three listed options when you're just half way through the cabin is pretty weak. Disappointed that entertainment options hadn't changed from the previous month."

Cons: "Luggage was lost"

Pros: "Best Arab airline so far.5 star but if I could give more i would"

Cons: "Ran out of meal options in both flights"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and everything else was very good and comfortable on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. We got to the gate too early (by maybe 10 mins before boarding time) so we were told to sit outside of the designated seating area and that they would make an announcement when we should go back up there. There was never an announcement, but we felt it was getting late so we went to check at the desk and they then said we were late and they were waiting on us. They were very nice about everything, but just thought that was really strange."

Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats, unfriendly crew members, worst food "Hindu meal""

Cons: "Touch screens are hardly touch sensitive..you may need to replace the screens.."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "There was almost a two hour delay, there wasn’t any information communicated, everybody was just asked to take seats in the waiting area. The entire process wasn’t very well organised."

Pros: "Brought me to liberty. The Kingdom of Thailand. Great Airline. Reasonable Price. Excellent treatment at Dubai international airport. TSA was also good at Liberty International Airport."
Cons: "Long boarding lines at Liberty International Airport."

Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Seats were a little narrow and could use new cushions."

Pros: "."
Cons: "."

Pros: "Timing of flight"
Cons: "Baggage policy has changed and has become too restrictive. Wieight and size and number of checked baggage is below competitors for transatlantic flights. Same for cabin luggage and is enforced randomly. Some economy passers were allowed two pieces, others were forced to check in cabiuggahe at $200."

Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Lots of new movies"
Cons: "Flight was 1 hr delay and we missed our connection flight. That was the most frustrating from the trip. Crew and aircraft was okay nothing special like I expected."

Pros: "Flight was quicker than expected"
Cons: "Food and the attendants"

Cons: "I did not get vegetarian food. And when i book that ticket i didn't get the option of food selection..."

Pros: "Cold meal was nice, standard business class, no amenities. Nice crew, welcome on board."
Cons: "The crew was in a constant hurry after. The meal was ok, but no cocktails served. Tablet was not working remotely, it has to be connected to the dock all the time. USB port was also not working, did not charge my phone. I’m glad that we did not buy the business upgrade for his flight before. It would felt wasting all our points. Luckily we were upgraded during check in. Check in was awful, they checked in 4 people in front of us roughly in 20 minutes in MLE. It felt like waiting for forever."

Pros: "Neat and clean. People at Newark airport"
Cons: "Service of air host. Attitude of people at Dubai airport"

Pros: "I felt very pampered!"

Pros: "I like thec customer service. Very accommodating"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic!! Definitely will travel with Emirates again!!"

Pros: "The cabin, the variety of beverages and the time of the trip"
Cons: "Perhaps the strange breakfast and the TVs quality"

Pros: "Great staff, great food, great entertainment, best possible international economy experience"
Cons: "Boarding process could have been a touch more organized, but not significant"

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Legroom entertainment show selection remote control {very poor} Food"

Cons: "We landed in Dubabi from Athens a bit late. We were taken by a bus from the plane to the terminal which took 15 minutes. That lefte us about 30 mins before the gate closed From where we were dropped off we walked for about 15 minutes but were nowhere near our gate. We asked Emirates employees to give us a ride in the golf cars. But they all refused, until one had pity on us and gave us a ride. We reached the gate a couple of minutes before the gate closed. When we arrive in Kolkata we were told that out luggage hadn't arrived. They reached our luggage to our Kolkata home a 11:30 pm. What a nightmare. Never again on Emirates."

Cons: "Electronic entertainment is poor and the whole experience rather depressing no matter how hard the crew tries"

Pros: "Very Kind"
Cons: "My seat assignment"

Pros: "Best entertainment system."
Cons: "Wifi didn't work. Seats could be more comfortable."

Pros: "Everybody was polity with smile the trip as good and"

Cons: "Tight leg room"

Pros: "Everyone was nice and attentive nice meals"

Pros: "Crew / service very attentive. Lovely appearance. Food very good , also the coffee! I also enjoyed the little comforts, pillows, blankets & the travel pouch with travel essentials. I also appreciate the cabin sizes & locations of the lavatories. And, love the ceiling lights!"
Cons: "My entertainment screen wasn't responding well, which di annoy the passenger in front of me lol"

Pros: "One of the better experiences I've had on a plane"

Pros: "Very impressed. Will definitely fly with them more often in the future. A little confused with the max weight of baggage. Website was not so soecific."

Pros: "Every thing"

Cons: "Broken seat, little leg room...A380 is a much better plane than the airbus."

Pros: "Food was great"

Cons: "The seat that was booked is stand by seat and so much problems arose. Last missing the flight."

Cons: "Too nosiness to hear movie"

Cons: "All was great"

Pros: "Leg room, seats reclining, kids movie selection."
Cons: "Food was horrific. Kids meal was just not Edible and smelled bad. By the time cabin crew reached our section there was no food selection. Bathrooms deteriorated through the flight and were not cleaned through a 10 hr flight. Paper towels and toilet toilet paper ran out two thirds of the way into the red-eye flight and bathrooms became non useable in the morning. Crew requires more training in upkeep of airplane on long-haul flights."

Pros: "Customer service, amenities like socks, sleeping mask, free headphones and free drinks were all excellent part of the trip."
Cons: "I'm a reasonable we'll traveled man who always flies economy class (unless I get a free upgrade or a great price to upgrade at check in). This is the most uncomfortable, cramped, and smallest seat I have ever flown in...first time flying Emirates...I certainly would never fly again and actual am haunted by the idea of the return flight in 10 days. Not worth it! I'd rather deal with possibly getting dragged off a United flight!"

Cons: "It was delayed for 8 hours!!!"

Pros: "The crew was incredibly welcoming and supportive. I was traveling with my daughter and they were so sweet to take pictures with her and bring her to the cockpit. The plane was state of the art and our flight was early. Now I see what everyone means when they say flying with Emirates is flying with among the best. Thanks Emirates."

Cons: "Maria was very rude and not pleasant."

Pros: "I like the food , yummy"
Cons: "I was in window seat. When serving food and beverages crew didn't give much concern."

Pros: "Everything was great. Flight crew was fleindly. Can't really be bored with so many free movie selections."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike to be honest. Overall experience was amazing. Emirates is a great airline."

Cons: "My bag was left in Newark and did not make it to Greece. Absolutely unacceptable"

Pros: "Excellent experience. The airline I will be looking to fly from now on."

Pros: "Cleanliness, customer service, rapidness"
Cons: "Entertainment was a little outdated"

Pros: "Staff was great, plane was comfortable."

Pros: "The whole experience was better than our departure flight on another airline."

Pros: "Really friendly and nice crew, just what you'd expect from Emirates."
Cons: "The Dubai-Kabul route frequently has less-experienced travelers. That is, people who don't know how to lock the bathroom door, who stand up as soon as wheels hit the runway, who leave the blinds up when the sun is shining, etc. Maybe crews should be briefed in advance on passenger sophistication."

Pros: "As always, very friendly crew. Nice plane, cleaner in business class."
Cons: "Slooooooooow wifi. This is a route that often has less experienced travelers, so the flight crew have plenty of extra work."

Pros: "Can’t remember"
Cons: "Can’t remember"

Pros: "The crew was really professional and I liked a lot of leg space."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and seats were comfortable and spacious"
Cons: "We could’ve not been 2 1/2 hours late getting to Minneapolis."

Pros: "The nice flight attendants."
Cons: "Leaving on time."

Pros: "Check-in and boarding was easy, seats were comfortable, a variety of snacks and drink options offered."
Cons: "The bag drop location for checked bags was unclear after kiosk check-in, had to get in regular line to drop off bag. Flight attendant did not tell passenger in front of me to raise his seat back before take off or landing."

Pros: "Flight attendant at the front with the glasses was excellent"
Cons: "The flight attendant at the front- I don’t know her name but she was wonderful, friendly and smiling and seemed genuinely pleased at her job. The flight attendant in the back I don’t believe smiled once the whole flight. It was a relatively short flight but still not one smile on boarding, in flight or once we landed. Probably gave the most morose safety demonstration in aviation history. I know most people don’t like their jobs but a smile does go a long way and for me personally it helps s great deal when you have an irrational fear of flying. She did nothing wrong but she could have at least looked like she wanted to be there."

Cons: "My only suggestion is to improve the volume and clarity of the announcements."

Pros: "Everything especially legroom in coach and snacks"
Cons: "My wife and I were assigned seats in separate rows"

Pros: "the food and entertainment was great."
Cons: "No food for breakfast."

Pros: "Delayed"

Pros: "Good entertainment options. Lots of movies, good quality screen. Nice enough food."
Cons: "It was a 13-hour flight. I hoped to sleep away most of it, but the seat recline angle was still way too vertical. I barely slept. I finished the trip with a pounding headache from lack of sleep."

Pros: "Crew was helpful"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but nothing specific was communicated to customers while we waited. Later announcements were made and we departed about 45 minutes late."

Pros: "Everything but the delay"
Cons: "The delay"

Pros: "That Harry Potter was playing"
Cons: "That our flight got delayed so many times, they changed the departure time to sooner at the last minute and we had to book it to the gate from security, we missed our connecting flight and had to sleep in the airport."

Pros: "Space is big compared to other regional flights. Plenty of entertainment: free Wi-Fi and directv."
Cons: "The flight attendant rolled the cart over my foot and did not apologize."

Cons: "Lost my bag, very poor customer service, no option to schedule bag delivery at a time convenient for me"

Pros: "Though the flight delayed they were on time frame."
Cons: "Communication was perfect."

Pros: "Standard short flight"
Cons: "You don't know your passengers' connections? Service of ground crew in NY is a catastrophe"

Cons: "Everything. Lost my bag"

Pros: "Boarding process was smooth"
Cons: "Flight was ultimately cancelled and they had "no patentee airlines" to provide an equivalent service. i booked a Delta flight that was leaving in another hour but Delta is not a JetBlue partner so I had to foot the bill of rebooking. This is last time JetBlue will have my business. I'm a delta frequent flier. I happened to pick JetBlue this time because the flight was slightly more convenient but clearly not worth it!"

Cons: "Boarding in the last group on a packed flight."

Pros: "Leg room."
Cons: "Flight was more than an hour late. There is NEVER enough room for carry-on luggage. Since you charge people extra to check luggage (how carrying luggage on a flight is considered "extra" is beyond me), you should provide enough space for them to bring carry ons. That adds to the stress of flying. It's almost as if you created a focus group, asked them how to make flying more stressful and miserable, and then did that."

Pros: "This flight was delayed when we were on the runway due to air traffic control. They estimated it could take an hour or more to take off. I told the flight attendants that I had a connecting flight in NY and they both helped look to see if there was a later flight I could get on, if we didnt make it in time. When they determined my connecting flight was the last one going out of NY that night, I asked if I could possibly de-plane if we were going to take off more than an hour late since I would surely miss my flight and and I would rather go home and sleep in my own bed than get a hotel in NY. They were genuinely and sincerely interested in helping me, so they spoke with the captain and updated the passengers since some other people had the same issue. The capain surprisingly agreed to roll back to the jetway to me off if we were going to be delayed passed the time for connection. Thirty minutes later, we were in the air and I made my connecting flight. The flight attendant even gave me earbuds to watch TV free of charge!!!! What an absolutely amazing flight crew!!!!!"

Pros: "Everything was perfect except that ,,,"
Cons: "... the seat bottoms are too hard. And the TV did not work on the return trip except upon landing."

Pros: "Staff did great with adjusting to delays."
Cons: "A lot of delays. Then did not get my connecting boarding pass. Which caused a lot of issues. Also, not sure where my bags are."

Cons: "Food, unserseasoned and grossly cooked. Only had fish option."

Pros: "I had my own row."

Pros: "Seats were comfy."
Cons: "No coffee. Snacks were smashed."

Pros: "All the connection went smoothly. This is awesome."
Cons: "I got a round-way trip. funny that my leaving airport is IAD and my returning airport is BWI, totally different."

Pros: "The flight was very nice, it wasn't crowded and we actually took off a few minutes early. I will definitely fly JETBLUE again."
Cons: "I don't have nothing to complain about on this flight to Boston."

Cons: "I recently flew from Washington Dulles to NYC John F. Kennedy. Throughout the day I received text messages and emails stating that my flight was delayed. I therefore delayed my arrival at the airport accordingly. I arrived at the ticket counter at 8:40pm (50 minutes prior to the new departure time) of 9:30. I was not concerned as the security line was 1 min long. When I arrived at the ticket counter, no JetBlue representative was there. I was finally able to find someone, but he turned me away, stating that the ticket counter was closed as there was no way to check any bags. He told me that despite getting emails telling me that the flight was delayed, it was my responsibility to get there 40 min prior to the original departure time to be able to check my bags. Then why send the delay messages at all? He also stated that "everyone else seemed to be there, it was just me" I told him that I didn't care, as I made it 50 minutes before my departure time. I had to stay in DC for the night and wake up at 4 am to be on the next flight. I don't understand why this happened and will avoid future JetBlue flights as possible."

Pros: "The overall service"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, however, that was beyond anyone's control."

Pros: "excellent food"

Pros: "early boarding"
Cons: "cold airm no relief"

Cons: "It was short straight to the point, exactly what I needed"

Cons: "Anxious flyer here. Booked a seat with a friend. Get to the gate and they've changed our seats and separated us without any notification. The people next to us wouldn't switch the flight attendants could care less. Let's just say I'm glad the pilot did a great job. Much undue mental stress."

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "I can respect the early notifications that the flight was cancelled."
Cons: "What I can not respect and what disappoints me are the options provided as an alternative for a problem I didn't cause. Turning a 1 1/2 hour flight nonstop into a 6 hour flight with 1 hour layover is unacceptable. Telling me, you changed the flight to a smaller seat plan and there is no longer space for my children is, unacceptable. This was the second flight cancelled within the week SAME EXCUSE WITH A NON CUSTOMER FRIENDLY OPTION. JetBlue is no longer the airline I will look to book, it will be the airline I look to avoid - like the plague."

Pros: "I never got to use it . Didn't let me in because my package it was too big So I'm really looking to talk to somebody by getting my money back You can email me or call me at this number 540 256 1148"

Pros: "Everything !"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The staff at the boarding gate did not announce clearly."

Pros: "Professional, Punctual, lots of leg room"

Pros: "very smooth landing"

Pros: "My first time to fly jet blue. Flight attendant serving our cabin was so warm and hospitable, will try to use Jet Blue more often."

Pros: "Crew were professional"
Cons: "Flight was late. 30 minutes waiting for a gate at Richmond"

Cons: "Staff continued to lie about the delay, made me miss my flight and no customer service present to help me coordinate the next flight"

Cons: "It was great!"

Pros: "The crew and the food are amazing on Turkish airlines. The food is exceptional."
Cons: "Boarding could be better organized."

Cons: "Boarding I was with my family but they didn’t give me the seats in one row my kids some where else my wife was in another seat and I was also so far from everyone That was not fair"

Cons: "Aircondi"

Pros: "Some crew was attentive, others were not. Piloting was good"
Cons: "Upgraded seats in the planes, especially business class, seats did not work properly or recline all the way, very uncomfortable. Food was mediocre at best, movie library needs updating. I'm also not sure why an older model of this aircraft is used on such a long haul flight."

Pros: "The crews are always awesome. The food great especially since they always have cherry juice, my favorite!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, and then seemed rushed at call Last Call. Also the ear phone jack was a double that even the TA ones didn't quite fit. Glad it was an overnight flight and slept most of the way."

Pros: "The crew was great and loved the meal given during flight."

Pros: "I was travelling with two cats, one in cargo and one in the cabin. The crew were excellent in letting me know how the one in cargo was doing and everyone was very nice to my other cat as well. They both came through the flight happy and healthy!"

Cons: "Our name wasn’t on the plane first ! After a while our names showed up than the plane left 25 minutes earlier and we were stuck in the airport and no one try to help they just informed us after 4 hours that we need to pay 600$ penalty!"

Pros: "Every thing normal and in time"
Cons: "Food was everage"

Pros: "They lost my luggage and no one knows where it is!"

Pros: "The crew members were really nice"
Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Better than all others at this time."

Pros: "yes"

Pros: "Nothing isn’t good flight"
Cons: "I don’t have any thing to say everything are bad even Airport too bad to find WI Fi also has unclean bathrooms over there"

Pros: "The meals and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The seating I needed more leg room"

Cons: "Older plane, uncomfortable seats, no individual entertainment systems. Long boarding without a lot of staff facilitating extra coat/overhead luggage storage because of winter, then we sat on tarmac for two hours because they missed their slot to take-off."

Pros: "Friendly and accommodating crew, surprisingly great food, and nice drink options."
Cons: "AC is on initially, then it gets really hot and uncomfortable after the first meal service. i asked a CA if she could help, but the temperature didn't change. This was the pattern for all 4 flights I took recently. Everything else was great though!"

Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. The entertainment. And the comfortability"

Cons: "Boarding time was supposed to be 19:10, we did not start to board until passed 20:00. Needless to say we were delayed. There was a woman at the counter,but there was no explanation given about the delay. Luckily it was the last leg of my journey and did not miss a connection flight,but being on an 11 hours flight just before, I was a little cranky. Overall I had a great experience."

Pros: "Hospitable"

Pros: "Good food and service"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Air conditioning was out upon boarding and went out again before landing"

Pros: "This was my firsth fly with this company and I was sorprice. This was wonderfull.Very good food, exelent. On line news."

Pros: "All was great. I love this company"
Cons: "In All my flights with them it is Sssoooo hot!!! They save on A/C??? I asked to cool the cabine - they did for 15 min and back to heat again . Managing seat assignment is impossible if you book through a website other than theirs . They don't have an "economy comfort " option"

Pros: "Food is excellent."

Cons: "Economy isn't supposed to be amazing but those seats need help"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Great service, smooth flight, and overall a pleasure to fly with."

Pros: "Comfortable seat Good food Great entertainment options USB to charge phone at the seat"
Cons: "Nothing. Excellent experience"

Pros: "amazing !!!"

Pros: "Trip was excellent. Plane was new and clean; good good; service very friendly."
Cons: "The delayed boarding and take off."

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 crew was very helpful in getting the Wi-Fi to work on my phone. The food was delicious."
Cons: "Not enough leg room for me at 6'3"ans the guy in front of me reclined his seat for the whole 12 hour flight!"

Pros: "Things that I liked I expected - we take it for granted: crew must be polite, boarding - efficient, leg room is normal."
Cons: "Even in business class leg room is not ample, aircraft seems to be quite old, inside is well scoffed and scratched, my foot rest couldn't be raised or extended, no personal ventilation, temperature is interchangeably too hot or too cold, movie choice is far from awesome"

Pros: "I enjoyed that it was a new plane."
Cons: "Given that I have multiple sclerosis, I did not appreciate having to go up a set of steep steps in order to get onto the plane.."

Pros: "It was spacious for being Economy."
Cons: "Flight crew that was assisting on my side was awful. Completely disrespectful and not willing to help or listen. Not to mention, special meal was requested online months in advance yet they didn't have any vegetarian meal left and I was left with eating break and fruit."

Cons: "they lost my luggage by my first stop"

Pros: "Everything. The crew was very accommodating as well as helpful."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Good food on board, TV is in every seat and USB plug to charge."
Cons: "Crew is okay. Does not really pay attention by the end of the flight. flight from Miami to Istanbul is very long - 11+ hours"

Pros: "Crew were pleasant and did a superb job of making passengers feel welcome."
Cons: "My gripe is mostly with the ground staff. I was happily sitting in the lounge drinking copious amounts of hot tea due to an illness when my flights status changed on the monitor; "go to gate", it read. When I dutifully arrived at the gate, what was happening? Absolutely nothing. I sat there shivering for another 30 mins before boarding, my heat source (the tea) removed. The moral of the story is that a passenger's time has value, DO NOT waste it. In my case, the cost was physical agony of freezing on a mediterranean island in the summer while wearing 2 shirts, long pants, and double socks. If the ground staff did everything to procedure and are thus faultless, then the procedure is reprehensible and should be updated."

Cons: "I wanted to upgrade called Kayak that out me through to VAYAMA that then called Turkish airlines. Took hours in the phone (international call) they then told me I can't upgrade (payed upgrade) because the business is FULL, guess what??? Business was EMPTY"

Pros: "The food was delicious. I have never had better airplane food. The movies were super new and interesting. I did not have time in the 11 hours of flying to watch all the movies I wanted to. The flight was also incredibly smooth."
Cons: "There were a few small things that could have been better (Which I'll mention), but the worst thing about the flight was the airport. Ataturk Airport is a mess. After the attempted coup, they really upped security, forcing all international flights to go through a second security screening after transferring from another airport. It's understandable but the line moved at a molasses-like speed when I had only 25 minutes to make my connecting flight. The security personnel were rude, as well. Also, when I went to make my connecting gate in Cairo, there was no one at the gate after the required boarding time (Because security had held us up), forcing some of us to board the plane without having anyone to show us onto the plane (Very scary). The flight boarding was chaotic, and no announcements were made about what we were supposed to do. Besides the lack of boarding gates, the only other serious complaint I had against Turkish Airlines (Because it really was great overall) was that the pilots and flight attendants were very hard to understand. I have taught ESL for the past 5 years, and I still had a hard time as an American understanding their English. Also, they frequently didn't understand or misunderstood questions that I would ask them. I've never had a hard time understanding flight attendants on an international flight, but I only understood about 20% of what anyone said over the loud speaker in the plane. And it's nice to be able to understand when the pilot says, "We are experiencing some turbulence and would like everyone to buckle their seatbelts until it passes." Two small things remain: 1. The bathroom trash cans were full on every flight (A small thing but makes everything feel "trashy"). 2. The flight attendants seemed unhappy, and they definitely seemed unhappy to be serving us. I can only assume they are that way because they aren't treated particularly well by their bosses."

Cons: "Flight from Istanbul to Amman boarding was a mess"

Pros: "Timng and services on board"
Cons: "I expect the plane to be upgraded."

Pros: "The turkish delight was great and the personal TVs were nice. The choice of shows to watch was good and the hot towel was a nice touch. I also liked the bag of goodies like a toothbrush and eye mask. Very nice."
Cons: "The crew was not super friendly, however, they got the job done."

Pros: "The flight out of JFK was late. I was seated way in the back. If the steward had not thought to offer me an empty seat way up in the front, I would not have made my connecting flight."
Cons: "my seat back did not recline."

Pros: "Loved all around."
Cons: "I loved it."

Pros: "the crew was waiting for us, coming from Delhi, our connection was a little tight. the luggage did not make it to ZRH but was delivered the next day"

Pros: "Lots of nice little amenities (lip balm, sleep mask). Tons of movies to choose from."
Cons: "Seats were small, old and uncomfortable."
