Cons: "Couldn’t locate the call button for flight attendants and the lines to the bathroom were long."
Cons: "Online Check-in didn't work properly, so we had to check in at the airport. They were understaffed and it took us over an hour to get through check in. The customer service was horrible, and we were only allowed to bring a backpack for a carry on, forcing us to check our one carry on bag. This made our two long flights uncomfortable with nothing to change into once we landed in Dubai and still had another 8 flight to Johannesburg. The flight itself was overbooked, and we then had to place our backpacks under the seats in front of us, giving us no leg room for 13 hrs."
Pros: "Everything else was good."

WHen landed in DXB, There was a long walk form the plane to the gate where you can find a stroller in the airport( which is only a single stroller) and having 3 kids which does not help. Why not give strollers at gate just like all other airlines! I was prepared and had the double stroller with me! Never again on Emirates with kids!"
Pros: "The crew, airplane"
Cons: "Sat next to a man who smelled terribly like alcohol. He then ordered and was served a small bottle of wine... I'm not sure he should have been allowed to board or served more alcohol.

Pros: "Service has become repulsive and terrible that a frequent traveling in Emirates like me for past 15 years is considering to find an alternative."
Cons: "Service, the interior and almost everything is poorly managed. The inflight after ringing the call bell for 10 minutes, was disgruntled to attend to us, literally screamed at us saying she was busy in the back and we need to be patient. She took an additional 10 minutes to bring us some water. Her attitude was inexcusable and offensive. I have been a loyal flyer making at least 2 travels in a year with Emirates and I'm ready to switch now."
Cons: "The temperature was set too high"
Cons: "Wish that the airline would have told me in advance that I need an Australia transit visa before I went to the airport."
Pros: "Tons of entertainment options and $1 wifi. Don't expect fast speed but works for just fine for email and slow browsing."

Pros: "Amazing service ! Great food! Great amenities ! Very clean!!"
Pros: "The food and staff were great. The seats were rather comfortable and the flight was very pleasant."
Cons: "The entertainment system was of an older style wherein we had a choice of 3 movies and 7 "radio stations" across 15 or so "TV channels" rather than the fuller suite of entertainment options I'm used to on a Turkish Airlines flight."
Pros: "The staff was disorganized The boarding slow and the computer was the workings same as above"
Pros: "flight was on time helpful staff nice meals"
Pros: "Entertainment on long haul flights is top notch. Selection is incredible just bring your own headphones if you wanna be able to hear anything. Food is the best out of any other carrier. I've seriously been to full service restaurants with less tasty and well prepared foods."
Cons: "Seats are hilariously small. I know you're thinking "they're all like that." They're NOTHING like any other airlines. I've flown the following for reference: Lufthansa Air Swiss Delta Air France Air Arabia Saudi Airlines Egypt Air and a couple more I can't think of right now. I'm a very medium sized build and really short (5' 6") and I was so uncomfortable I wanted to (and probably will) cancel my return flight with them. My wife's back is still hurting from that flight. The staff are just plain awful save for 2 flight attendants. Out of 2 flights so far. I was told afterwards that this is commonplace when flying Turkish Airlines. For fairness sake I should mention that both Egypt Air and Saudi Airlines were worse. Whatever money you think you're saving by flying this atrocity you're gonna be spending on fixing your neck and back. Spend the extra and go with Swiss or even Delta. Avoid this rubbish"
Pros: "Always on time....no delays."
Pros: "Quiet trip"
Pros: "Wonderful Airline , great seating , clean planes and cooperative cabin crews highly recommended.."
Pros: "EVERYTHING EXCEPT FOR BEING CRAMPED IN MY SEAT."

Cons: "not a lot of leg room"
Pros: "Entertainment system Availability of staff Cleanliness of plane"
Cons: "It was extremely hot the whole flight everyone was uncomfortable Coach seats need more leg space and the recliner on my seat didn't work"
Pros: "The plane was late taking off which made the connection in Istanbul tight. The fact that there were no announcemts made it somewhat stressful finding the gate which was very far from the location where we deplaned. Other than that, the food was great and the staff pleasant enough."
Cons: "2 times my movie screen didn't work. One time I was able to shift over to another seat and use a different iPad. Good movie selection."
Cons: "We were flying to JFK from TLV via IST. First flight was canceled and then re-scheduled after landing we were stuck for more than 3 hours inside airplane in Istanbul, then we were stuck inside the plane for 6 hours !!!!! Nightmare"
Pros: "My flight was delayed to begin with and then from turkey to islamabad the flight was diverted to karachi and due to unknow reason and i spent 12 hours at the airport without because the flight attendents reached their limit. Worst airline."
Cons: "Cramped. This is how I would describe my flight. Very tight. Seats close together, a bit claustrophobic. Made the 9 hour flight seem twice as long. Plane was an Airbus 300 (I think) Service was fine and attendants friendly but I'd think twice about flying long-distance with Turkish again on this Airbus model."
Pros: "Food was great! Drinks was varied The crew was very nice and thoughtful"
Cons: "There was no entertainment since the system didn't work all the flight. All the boarding things was very poor both sides of flight. Big delay!!"

Pros: "Turkish airlines never gave me notice or explanation. At least Kayak gave me notice and i appreciate."
Cons: "For example the menu has fish or chicken but majority of passesengers did not have chance to get fish due to the limited number. Other than everything was great"
Pros: "Unnecessary delays, very rude and inconsiderate crew, both inflight and at the Istanbul Airport. They provided no accommodations for those that missed connections and had very poor organizations. Also, as a physician that was called to a medical emergency on the flight, I received not even a thanks. Also, they were very delayed in getting the medical supplies to us physicians and requires ID prior to opening the emergency kit which definitely delayed care!"
Cons: "Delays, inconsiderate crew, poorly managed medical situations, no hotel accommodations with prolonged flight delays, poor communication to passengers"
Cons: "the 7 hr delay and having to wait in line for 2 hrs to rebook in stead of being able to call a number."
Cons: "Was horrible, I felt like I was sitting in a back seat of two door car with no space for 9 hours and no way out, I refuse to fly Turkish ever again pay the extra $500 to fly with Emirates it Qutar well worth it than this place, food was discusting they shouldn't be a air line PIA is better"
Cons: "I miss my flight from Istanbul to sofia due a technical issues leaving JFK International Airport from NY and no one was waiting for us to make sure we can get to our connect fligt on time. Thank you Turkish Airlines for letting me stay 11 hours on your stupid airport and missing one day of may vacation. I will never ever again flight with you!"
Pros: "Top notch"
Cons: "The seats were close together and I felt crowded"
Pros: "Great movie selection. Some of the staff ( only some ) are really nice."
Cons: "Turkish airlines must have tried hard to squeeze in a few extra seats. Legroom used to be little but manageable. Now it is just painful. Also the food or service is not what it used to be."
Pros: "Everything good"
Pros: "Served us a meal and snack, which is much appreciated. Both were quite good for airplane food. Smooth flight. Excellent entertainment. There were actually QUALITY movies to watch, which made the time go by fast."
Cons: "It seemed difficult to get the attention of a stewardess for another drink. I guess I could have hit the button calling for someone, but I always feel like too much of a diva by doing that."
Pros: "great experience! I will highly recommend Turkish Airlines! Loved the slippers! Great food!"
Pros: "Movie selection was good"
Cons: "Tthe seats and surrounding space was small. The food was bad."
Pros: "The food is really good, they still are trying to do airline travel like it used to be - with great service and proper meals, menus and snacks. Lovely staff too."
Cons: "Inadequate space for rollie luggage - most compartments don't accomodate - and the flight attendants became frazzled as time went on - sometimes they were rude when you asked for water or a soda - I think because they would be coming by with a drinks cart in a second, but we don't always know that."
Cons: "Two women fight over space the entire flight and the flight crew were indifferent about it."
Pros: "Good experience flying the airline including: Checkin process including securing me the last exit row seat Boarding went quickly Meals were plenty and good - also had a menu Provided a personal case with things like socks etc Connection was smooth for me Customer service in general was good"
Cons: "Only negative experience was that I had a connecting flight with a small window (1 hour) in Istanbul and my bag didn't make the same flight as me so I was without it for a half day. However they handled the situation well - knew where my bag was, sent it on the next flight and delivered it to my hotel so it wasn't too inconveniencing."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Crew could have been friendlier. Also they should come around more often for trash collection"
Pros: "Very pleasent crew, yummy foods and excellent trıp"
Pros: "Seat was private, comfortable, accommodating. Service was really great, food was delicious. totally nice flight."
Cons: "It took a bit long to get a drink on the flight (over two hours) but that is probably because it's not really in the Turkish religious culture to drink ... other than that, it was a beautiful flight!"
Pros: "good food"
Cons: "seat spacing too crowded"
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "I wish there was a wife"
Cons: "That every person we spoke to since getting notification the original flight was delayed lied to us and misled us and failed to help us. Our vacation was completely ruined by booking with this airline."
Pros: "I brought my wedding dress with me and on both flights, the flight attendents were so attentive to that and hung in it the cabin crew closet. It was that extra step of care that I am grateful for!"
Pros: "Nice Crew except when they were not watching where they stepped. Smooth flight."
Cons: "I had a swollen and sprained ankle during the flight, I had it resting near the aisle to stretch and move to try and keep it from swelling further. Unfortunately, my injured ankle was kicked several times by a rushed crew member. It would be great if they could be a bit more mindful and watch where they are walking. Also, the breakfast before landing was spoiled when I discovered fungus in my butter after I had already eaten half of it."
Pros: "The crew, both in SFO and on board where e excellent. We were well taken care of, in both area's. The service on the plane were top notch, anticipating our every need. The food was yummy and the entertainment great!"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and professional. We arrived early"
Cons: "Food was disappointing as was the wine. I am not a large person but I found the business class “bed” pretty narrow and uncomfortable."
Pros: "The plane was very clean and I appreciated when the crew asked passengers have their seats in a normal upright position during meal times as there is very little space when the seats are reclined. We can hardly get out of our seats when other passengers need to go to the restrooms."
Cons: "The crew was rather cold; I got the feeling they were doing their jobs but not in a warm and customer friendly oriented way, may be because I was in Economy. I was surprised by the lack of space in economy for such a long Haul flight in an A 380."
Pros: "Almost everything."
Cons: "Length of flight (out of Lufthansa's control, of course), temperature (a little too cold), food carts hitting people."
Pros: "Everything that happened during the flight was fine. The service, the flight itself, and the landing – which was excellent."
Cons: "On the ground, neither the staff nor the signage made it clear exactly where to check in. I was sent to the Lufthansa counter, which didn’t open until 11:30, when I should have gone to the United counter. An hour of my time was wasted, which almost resulted in my missing the one-hour before take-off check-in deadline. The only reason I didn’t miss the deadline was because the flight was late taking off."
Pros: "I liked the comfort of the seats and the spaciousness of the area allowing for standing out of the way. The service was exceptional and the food on this flight was very good. Entertainment was also very good."
Cons: "My only suggestion would be if the crew would inquire if you've ever flown either with Lufthansa or specifically business Class and just give tips if needed. Other than that, on this leg of our journey we had no complaints."
Pros: "Great crew, great flight, food and drinks was awesome"
Cons: "I don't like the fact that I can't choose my seat from earlier because I a big girl and I like to set in the emergency exist seats so I'm not crush up in the middle seat not comfortable and long flight like that lots of pain at the end of the flight"
Pros: "Excellent service. They really brought around the drinks and food and seemed to be there when you were looking for more."
Cons: "You have to pay for food unless it is pretzels."
Cons: "delayed by 1.5 hrs due to computer issue with landing grear, missed connecting flight from Munich to Stuttgart, had to wait an additional two hours in Munich to catch a later flight to Stuttgart"
Pros: "Overall great and on time !"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth, take off off & landing. The crew was polite. Although they kept calling me sir when I am a woman."
Cons: "There were minimal new movie choices. A lot of old movie movie options. The food was terrible! Definitely need to step their game up here. I also didn’t like that the customer behind me kept bumping my seat every time he moved or made a movie selection."
Pros: "I liked the seats, the space for our legs and the crew members"
Pros: "the bathrooms - so many and downstairs. smooth flight. plane seat layout - 2-3-2"
Cons: "meals were served at odd time but were good. passenger behind me was upset when my chair was leaned back. an extra charge for seat assignment. 30 minutes on the tarmack before take off"
Pros: "Flight Attendants were Excellent. Friendly, attentive, and caring! Thank You Very Much."
Cons: "Lufthansa changed our seats, splitting up my wife and I, after confirming they were together. Thank you to the Flight Attendant who reseated us together but "you know what" to the person that screwed up the seats in the first place. Also the on-line check in process was extremely poor, maybe "bad" is a better word."
Pros: "Got me to Nuremberg"
Cons: "Lufthansa does not honor frequent flyer statuses of any of their alliance partners in regards to seat upgrades. Being 6'4", the ability to upgrade to economy plus/premium is important on long-haul flights. Everything else about Lufthansa is excellent, but I will not book with Lufthansa for long flights anymore because of this. I'll stick with United from now on."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was very nice except for the exceptionally tiny and narrow seats."
Cons: "Tiny, narrow seats."
Pros: "I liked how I was taken advantage of, knowing it will never happen again"
Cons: "After having my ticket Inadvertently canceled didn't like the lack of support in purchasing a new ticket through Luftansia's customer service agents that deals with consolidators such as Kayak. In the end I was left not be able to buy a ticket for three days after being quoted a specific price and charged about triple the rate originally quoted it initially quoted I wasted valuable time into my vacation along with an amazing amount of stress ."
Pros: "Lufthansa always has good service and amenities"
Cons: "I believe it is Lufthansa's responsibility to move my seat if I am seated next to someone who is taking up more than half of my seat for an 11 hour flight"
Cons: "Food was lousy. I have not flown L for sometime, but the food was lousy. I don't remember it being this bad previously. They ran out of rice and chicken...and served me beef... The chicken was on the bone, instead of being off the bone...so harder to eat in small space."
Pros: "Everything was ok"
Cons: "Food was very bad"
Pros: "With a long flight, just not enough seat or leg room for coach."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Cons: "They sit us at row with 3 TVs and in order to watch we need to watch for 12 hours curved for 45 degrees. Please try to do this your self."
Pros: "Seating, Staff,"
Pros: "The wide selection of content to watch, food was good."
Cons: "45 minute flight delay due to a discrepancy with the engine."
Cons: "Would have liked smoother boarding and more live TV choices"
Cons: "Boarding system was chaotic. Not enough space for all people, so many had to stand near the boarding area, which meant those who were called to board had to push through many people. The chaos meant that is added stress to personnel trying to board people in a calm and effective manner and had to shout loud to get the right people to board at the right time. Just an overall unpleasant experience. I was glad when I finally got on the plane"
Cons: "The food was not goot at all."
Pros: "Excellent service newer plane check in was a breez entertainment on plane was some of the best we have seen in a long time overall a 5 star experience."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "The bread was still cold/frozen"
Pros: "service, food, entertainment"

Cons: "Entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly- no delays."
Pros: "Great service and entertainment. Pretty comfortable, too."
Cons: "food was so so."
Pros: "everyone was quite friendly and so helpful."
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Cabin was fine."
Cons: "My husband's audio did not work so none of the entertainment was available to him. His overhead light did not work for most of the flight until the entire system was rebooted."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Food only average"
Pros: "The service and quiet ride"
Cons: "The headphones did not work"
Pros: "Arriving early Decent food"
Cons: "Taking off late"
Pros: "Crew attitude was good"
Cons: "The plane was old and dirty, very uncomfortable to say nothing of awfl entertainment"
Cons: "They charged me extra for advanced seat reservation. When I got to the airport the reserved seat was gone and they were offering me another seat that wasn't as good. They said this is normal and were not able to refund the extra money they charged!!!"
Pros: "Not a lot..."
Cons: "flying used to be enjoyable, now with the seats packed like sardines in a can, it just is not pleasant..honestly...I love going to Europe, Asia and overseas in general, but after 35 plus years of watching leg room shrink to none..and the width of the seat large enough to accommodate a 10 year old, flying now overseas is a chore i won't put up with anymore, Airbus is the worst. I'm 5'10" and 180 lbs so it's not like I'm big. Add to this the luggage and other fees, and flying is absolutely miserable for more than 1 hour."
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Pros: "Service & employees Best airline I've ever flown"
Pros: "New plane, A340-600, surprisingly comfortable and spacious in Economy. Good entertainment system with plenty of movies, mix bag of new and old. 2 meal served which were okay, nothing special, but can't complain."
Cons: "Delay of 4 hours in Moscow"
Pros: "Food, crew"
Cons: "Time I had to wait in the queue."
Pros: "Quick boarding, nice and friendly crew, lots of movies and shows to pick from"
Cons: "Food tasted good but portions were really small, like kids meal. Crew was not updated with the times and left 45 minutes late which made us miss our connection flight and Im writing this while waiting for the next one we had to schedule. My 11 months old is with us and this was very inconvenient to say the least"
Pros: "Enroute to russia i had an upset stomach . The entire back poetion of the plane was empty so ppl were lying across seats etc. I was seated next to an older lady so i didnt want to keep asking her to move... so i decided to stay near the bathrooms . I sat in an empty seat the flight attendant saw me and said you have to pay for that seat ypu cant sit here" i tried to explain to her but she walked off so i got up ... and was standing around until another flight attendant asked me if i was ok so i asked her whete could i sit near the toilets and she told me where i was standing was ok to sit. Now my issue is not about the seat i understand if its a specail seat but atleaat offer an altetnative"
Cons: "The rude flight attendant"
Pros: "I liked only entertainment system."
Cons: "I bought premium economy tickets as usual. But this time I had feelings that I was in economy class. Kids and adults from economy class were waking around all flight and were talking very loud. Meals didn't match menu and taste was bad. But worst part is that crew were letting people change seats from economy to premium for a good review. That is Russian way of doing business."
Pros: "Food was pretty well portioned. Good selection of music and movies, including some good Russian/Soviet classics. Much smoother ride than Aeroflot's other widebody products. Ice cream for breakfast."
Cons: "Flight attendants were smiley robots. Drinks and meals served at absurd intervals from each other - never at the same time. Exactly one alcoholic beverage service all flight, and no choice but to go and ask in the galley for anything else - including water. Thin seats that slide forward in addition to reclining. The literal worst boarding and replacing procedures - almost an hour of standing and waiting first in the terminal, then in the aisles. Better hope you speak Russian if you need anything."
Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Food and crew"
Pros: "The first flight had a good crew, plenty of leg room and lots of entertainment"
Cons: "Seats are too narrow"
Pros: "Очень вежливый и заботливый персонал, отличное обслуживание, профессионализм летчиков ( мягкая посадка и надежность в полете), прекрасное меню и организация питания в целом, чистота в салоне и туалете, обеспеченность всем необходимым в полете, возможность просмотра фильмов в полете. Класс самолета Боинг 777 нравится. В целом очень хорошее впечатление от полета, гораздо лучше, чем от полета на Дельта и Юнайтед в США."
Cons: "Неточность в исполнении расписания ( скорее всего не зависит от аэрофлота). небольшой выбор фильмов для просмотра."
Cons: "There were a group of people next to me talking and laughing loudly through out the whole night. I asked one of the stewardesses if she could speak to them but should wait 20 minutes so that its not obvious that it was me who was complaining. She repeated what I said and assured me she will take care of it. Instead she came over to them 2 minutes later and then turned to me and said everything will be ok. Of course they continued being rowdy the whole night. The flight was ruined as I could get no sleep. Will think twice before going with Aeroflot again"
Pros: "The service was great, nice cabin staff"
Cons: "food had both special meal and kosher meal and none were great"
Pros: "I enjoyed the friendly crew, the pilot's efforts to keep us informed, and the hassle-free boarding and departure."
Cons: "Somehow my Aeroflot flights are always late... even if only by a half hour. Makes for disruption of pick up on the far end."
Pros: "the aircraft"
Cons: "almost no english anouncements"
Pros: "Clean airplanes and friendly staff."
Cons: "There was such a short window of time between my connection in Moscow and my bag didn't make it to London until the next day."
Cons: "It was really, really terrible. The flight was cancel. 5 hours later the second one was cancel."
Pros: "Aeroflot is very good value for money. The planes are new, roomy, have good in-flight entertainment choices and the crew give very good, polite service. Overall their flights are usually on time. The food is reasonable on flights leaving New York but on flights out of Moscow the food is really poor, sometimes even inedible! The English announcements are almost impossible to understand but that is the same on many airlines."
Pros: "Frendly personal!!"
Cons: "no comments"
Pros: "The crew and flight attendants"
Cons: "Delay in receiving my luggage"
Pros: "entertainment system is quite new. everything else is what is expected from the trans-atlantic flight"
Cons: "econom class )"
Cons: "Boarding is done by sections not by rows"
Pros: "Tasty food, nice crew"
Cons: "Flight was one hour late so I had to run to my connected flight. It was very hot inside of the plane."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Horrible boarding. Terrible food. Seats a tiny, have to fight with person seating next to you over elbow space."
Pros: "Most everything."
Cons: "The video screens were not working in the whole middle section where I was sitting, therefore, no entertainment on a 8-9 hour flight."
Pros: "I have not flown in 15 years or internationally or for more than 3 hours. it was a wonderful experience."
Cons: "I needed more room on the side. Im big in the shoulders. Probably should have reserved a roomier seat."
Cons: "Self assigned isle seat was not honored. My seat turned out a middle one which I hate the most. No heads up no chance to re-assigned. stuck in where I did not want to be."
Cons: "One of the crew members was rude and unhelpful"
Pros: "Timely flights, amazing crew, excellent service"
Cons: "Poor movie selection"
Pros: "I liked service, entertainment, food and comfort"
Cons: "Long line during boarding"
Pros: "I like that the crew was able to smile"
Cons: "However, they were not very helpful with requests. I suffer from very bad anxiety, that is why I check in online so I can reserve a window seat which calms me down during flights, however, I was not able to check in online these past flights because the flights were booked. Whenever I reached this problem on different airlines the crew ALWAYS helps me find someone to switch with for a window seat. I asked several crew members on aeroflot to help me find someone to switch with and not one of them was helpful or comforting."
Pros: "The staff was very welcoming and polite, as usual. Great selection of movies."
Cons: "My biggest concern is the size of restrooms...very uncomfortable. NYC-Moscow is a long distance flight. I wish Aeroflot could use those newer Transaero crafts with huge restrooms."
Pros: "Некоторые стюардессы очень милые!!!"
Cons: "Сиденья были очень тесные!!! И расстояние очень маленькое!!! На рейс из Янью Йорка"
Pros: "Professional crew & going the extra mile."
Pros: "Crew was efficient, flight was on schedule, good communication from the cockpit and cabin crew. Plane itself was typical and the food was average. The crew was generous with water, juice, and tea. It was nice to receive slippers and a blindfold. The in-flight entertainment had a good selection of movies, television, and music. I enjoyed the Russian cartoons."
Cons: "The boarding lines at JFK were poorly marked so people kept ending up in the wrong line and having to shift back and forth. And the plane was so warm during flight that it was difficult to sleep!"
Pros: "Price was cheap."
Cons: "I didn't like crews.They didn't have service mind."
Pros: "Excellent flight crew, I liked the slipper package"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, no leg room, no vegetarian food and the crew was rude. They never smiled and do not seem to care about how you are doing at all. I also could not understand the announcements because the crew does not speak good English."
Pros: "Seats are pretty decent and good space from the seat in front of you. Horizontal space is not great but wasn't too bad either. The crew was very nice and even though their english is limited, they were always helpful. They're Russian, so if you understand their culture you'll know they won't be smiling and begging to please you --it's not a bad thing it just is. The movie selection was excellent. Showing very recent movies from the box office. They give you sleepers, eye mask, pillow, blanket and headphones. I had the beef option for their meal and that was pretty good for flight food. It even had their version of cheesecake dessert which was really good (it was american cheesecake, just not pie crust at the bottom). Their breakfast egg was pretty lame, but it came with salad, bread and a fruit bar."
Cons: "- They're drink selection is fairly limited. Juice I think was cranberry, apple and orange. Honestly I don't care, it's enough for me but when you compare to other flights you'll find this limited. - Horizontal space between sets is not great."
Pros: "Service and entertainment were great! Staff courteous and helpful. Even though my flight from New York was late my connecting flight was waiting for me. Great overall!"
Pros: "crew was pleasant and kind"
Cons: "The seats are cramped together with little leg room. When the person in front of you reclines, their seat is literally in your face, it is very tight."
Pros: "Everything is perfect!!"
Pros: "the people who were helping me before I got in the plane were nice and helpful."
Cons: "Crew were not smiling. Announces were all in Russian. Just couple of them were in English and they were not clear."
Cons: "Hello, Everything was ok, flight was good, except my 1 luggage was lost. I filled out all docs at the airport. My case # is SVOSU38652 from Dec.26. Luggage lable - SU922285. Aeroflot representative told me that they are in process to find my luggage. Unfortunately, they haven't found my case. I will send complain letter to Aeroflot. The airline refused to provide compensation for this loss. Is it anyway to get compensation for my lost luggage? Thank you for your assistance in this matter. Best, Svetlana Zemlinskaya firstname.lastname@example.org"
Pros: "Everything besides the seats. The crew is friendly and courteous, the entertainment systems are modern and even let you charge your phone via USB, and the plane was clean and looked new."
Cons: "The seats have hard, flat seat cushions that make your behind feel sore after an hour. The seat back is sculpted for a 5' tall passenger and cut into my back around the shoulder blades. I was unable to make myself comfortable, let alone fall asleep, despite being very tired and sleepy."
Pros: "This is our third round trip on Aeroflot in 2 years. The price was amazing AND the entire experience was what you would expect from a major airline. We were lucky to have no delays. The inflight service was what we expected, the food was more than edible and the ground and flight staff were professional. We make 2-3 international trips per year and are experienced mature travelers."
Pros: "The flight was relatively cheaper than others"
Cons: "The aircraft was less comfortable than other flights I've been taking in the last few years,but I was ready to accept it given the cheapest cost. The food though made me real sick,I still have stomach ache after 24 hours. The headphones provided to watch movies were of such low quality that it was barely possible to hear what the actors would say, and given that it was a two-input system, it was not possible to use your own headphones."
Pros: "I liked the service, the food was delicious even in economy class."
Pros: "Left on time Not too crowded Seats decent"
Pros: "My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our 9 hour flight. I was pleasantly surprised at how often they served us food, drinks, and snacks throughout the flight ! Movie selection was impressive and we both watched 3-4 movies. It was great that we could pause movies at our leisure as well!"
