Pros: "Food was better than other airline."

Cons: "They didn't come to pick up trash very often."
Pros: "The service, food, convenience of a direct flight to Istanbul"

Cons: "It was extremely hot on a 10-hour flight. Crew was not friendly, almost rude. Seat space was VERY tight."
Pros: "I sat in coach but was treated like I was in first class. Hot towels. Entrees were very excellent. The food was above what I expected coach meals to be from my experiences flying different carriers to over 8 different countries. The customer service was amazing! The lady flight attendant for my section was very attentive and friendly. When I came out of the bathroom, I accidentally interrupted one male flight attendant from doing his job, he politely gestured which reassured me that he would be right with me when he was done with what he was doing. I asked him if they had any heartburn or antiacids available which they didn't. These 2 interactions with the flight attendants made the flight very enjoyable."
Cons: "I was in couch and in the middle seat. I usually get the aisle or window so it was a hard adjustment to sleep in the middle seat because I didn't have leg room and couldn't lean my body against anything so I had to shift often to avoid my bottom from feeling numb."

Pros: "That was good every thing, thank you."
Cons: "Nathing wrong."

I know the airline has nothing to do with it but they should pressure the airport to have more safety for the passengers or find an airport in another country that is safer like Macedonia or Bulgary. Just as a temporary thing while things become safer in Turkey. In other words, only stop in Turkey for people who is flying to that country. Connecting flights should stop somewhere else."

Cons: "This is the second time in a week Turkish Airlines are delaying my flight with no proper explanation on why this happened. Out of four flights, I had two delayed, and one was rescheduled half an hour ahead of time. Good thing I headed to the airport earlier. Turkish Airlines no more!!!"
Pros: "The service, food, and in flight entertainment were great. The leg room in coach was on par with other major carriers that I have flown transatlantic. The layover in Istanbul was pleasant (go to Staarbucks for free wifi). And I saved $500 over the price of other flights. I'd definitely take Turkish Airlines again, and maybe even arrange for a longer layover to be able to see Istanbul."
Pros: "First of all, the food is fantastic is you are not a meat and potatos (or big mac) kind of person. My original flight left late due to a hold up in security in Chicago.

Turkish Airline changed my connection time without notifying me such that I had 5 min left for my cooection in stambul. They gave me no other option and blamed this on Kayak and kayak blamed it on the Airline leaving me with no options. I had to stay in Birlin at my own expense. Complaint filed with Turkish airline resulted in nothing. I made several calls for update and only repose I got was we will send an email to the complaint dept. and you will here in 24 hours. This has been going on for over 5 days with no contect, update or resolution. Once back in the US, I plane to file a formal complaint with FAA and more. DO NOT take this airline. They are worst airline I have ever used and will never use it again."
Pros: "I liked everything, from check in to the end of my trip!"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike!"
Pros: "I liked evereting!"
Pros: "I was very pleased with the overall service and comfort on my flight. Boarding went smoothly, and crew were friendly and helpful. Cabin service included Turkish delight, hot towel, an amenities bag, hot dinner, hot breakfast, and snacks available thought the flight in the galley. Entertainment was on demand and included a wide selection. Seats were comfortable with reasonable distance between rows for coach (better than on many U.S. carriers).

Restroom amenities include hand lotion and refreshing spray - very nice."

Cons: "Website is very difficult to navigate and use."
Pros: "The crew was spectacular. They had 20 crew members."

Pros: "Flight on time and crew friendly"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The hot towelettes before eating was very nice."

I had been looking forward to catching up on some movies ( rarely have time for to or movies usually) was disappointed to have no working screen on such a long flight. Did appreciate the effort to supply a gluten free meal, unfortunately someone added whole wheat crackers ( luckily still in wrapper ). The boarding area was mixed with people trying to get to New Jersey at the next gate making it very crowded and confusing, people found themselves in the wrong line."

I travel with a musical instrument and some airlines want to check it and some even insist on checking it, even though there is always plenty of room. This was a completely full flight and no one even mentioned the possibility of checking it; they put me in an early boarding line and put it in a closet. The way they handle this for myself and the other passenger with an instrument made our day, as well as making boarding smoother forbus and everyone else. Really excellent job on that!"

Pros: "Pretty smooth flight"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."
Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."
Pros: "The crew were amazing and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Keep up the good work"
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Pros: "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."
Pros: "We got to Amsterdam on time"
Cons: "1. Paying for the seats we chose...that will never happen again...I'll fly another airline first. 2. The food was terrible. I have flown KLM for years, this was not what I expected. 3. The plane was very dirty"

Pros: "short, sweet and to the point. 1+ hour flight is usually an easy hop."

Pros: "Crew was excellent -kind nice and very attentive"
Cons: "Entertainment went out mid flight. Had to be reset off 30 mins but cam back up"
Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."
Cons: "Except for the man next to me - great!"
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight."
Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"

Cons: "Not a lot of shoulder room being in the middle seat. But it had adjustments options for a lot of other things which were good."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Pros: "Good services!"

Cons: "Crew was not very friendly on bot departure and return flights. Will make me reconsider Air France in the future."

Passenger in seat near man on floor (diabetic but no one tells us anything) needs to lay across four seats with oxygen for heart issues for remainder of trip with staff and doctor on board nearby. Nevdr informed what was happening, never offered to move our seats or move iIl passengers. Glad all turned out ok. Could have given them more privacy and better informed other passengers."
Cons: "Both flights through Detroit were re-routed, our luggage was lost for 4 days."

Pros: "On time, no hassle."
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..."
Cons: "Excelente aerolínea"
Pros: "Flight was in time"
Pros: "The crew was friendly!"

Cons: "Return the 777 to 9 across"
Pros: "The flight crew on the flight was amazing. Went beyond basic needs and requirements."
Pros: "I did like Flying with Delta and Air France but not with Ukrainian airlines (when booking , it should tell you what airlines will be used , to make a better selection )"
Cons: "When I purchased my flight ticket , I purchased with a checked bag (23 kg /50 #) how ever ( who will fly to Ukraine with a 10kg suitcase) I booked for a KLM flight , they used (partener airlines ) when I arrived to LA I flew with Delta , they checked my Suitcase at no cost all the way to my final destinations , that was expected ! When I was going to return , they made me payed 120 dollars ( in Kiev , Ukraine (UIA) , I was very disappointed and I really will love an explanation about all this !"

Cons: "Small plane, no movies"
Pros: "Service and crew are great"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good meal and entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding agent forced me to check in my carry-on even though the carry-on fit in the cage and fullfilled all the requirements. I specifically called Air France prior to the flight to make sure I won’t have any issues as my 1st flight was operated by Delta and I wanted to confirm the luggage requirements were the same. My carry-on weighted only 5 kilos. I was extremely upset the way I was treated w/ the boarding agent behind the counter in Prague. On the top of that, her and the supervisor were very rude to my mom as they told her she had an extra carry-on which wasn’t the case. She traveled w/ a small briefcase where her mask for sleep apnea was. This is not considered an additional carry-on. The boarding agent (Czech lady and her supervisor) were not only rude but obviously lacked knowledge as well. My carry-on suitcase would easily fit in the overhead bin plus there was plenty of space inside the plane as it the flight wasn’t completely full."
Pros: "The food was okay and the staff were friendly."
Cons: "My seat and several others around me were broken so that they would fall all the way back if we leaned back at all. The entertainment system kept crashing and forgetting what shows everyone on board we’re watching. There were no air vents to control. The games crashed constantly. The usb hubs didn’t work."
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"
Pros: "Enjoyed my food, especially tasty for airplan fare!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"
Pros: "I like traveling with AirFrance in general."
Cons: "Terminal too far to go to loggage, walking about more than two miles after a long trip is not very easy AirFrance should have a better terminal at Charles-de-Gaulle!!! Have some missing stuff in my luggage!!!!"
Pros: "What’s not to like!"
Cons: "no vegeterian sandwiches very disappointed"
Pros: "Crew very professional and nice food Boarding process well organized"
Cons: "Poor seat comfort in business class and no entertainment for a flight lasting more than 1h"
Pros: "The hostesses were very kind and nice"
Pros: "Priority boarding"
Cons: "Premium economy seats do not recline, only slouch. One of our 2 seats wouldn't slouch more than half way. The entertainment options are extremely sparse and the screens are 4:3 ratio, tiny, and of such poor quality that they look like laptop monitors from 1999."
Cons: "The crew was not very polite."
Pros: "Chicako Párizs szuper , udvarias személyzet pontos érkezés."
Cons: "We were rebooked, which understandably happens for any number of reasons. However, we were not informed or asked about our preference until our luggage was checked through! The staff especially in Chicago where we began this awful experience couldn't care less about our situation. Then AIr France lost our luggage and provided no help in locating them. We had to rely on folks who had friends working in Zagreb Airport to locate them. Air France is incompetent, insensitive and unprofessional. If you have an important trip avoid Air France - they treat you like captives not customers."
Pros: "Food, drinks, and general service on board were all very nice"
Cons: "Airport experience at cdg was atrocious. Took more than an hour to check in and it was a complete zoo."
Pros: "It was clean The crew was very kind Food was very good Flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats were exceedingly close Screens for entertainment were small and game controls were difficult to use"
Pros: "Other crew members were very polite to us, in particular a younger tall woman."
Cons: "2 crew members, one named Terri were quite rude and short with us. I even heard her say she was ready to get off the flight. She also asked everyone around me if they liked their flight but did not ask me. She basically threw my coffee condiments at me and dismissed my concerns about the food. I was unsure if the fruit was expired and she quickly dismissed my question without any real explanation."
Pros: "Best flight I've ever flown. Blankets and pillows provided with many options for movies."
Pros: "Loved the movie selection and the food was good too."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. Every time there's an announcement, it interrupts the movies and some of the announcements were completely unnecessary and there were so many of them, it was like constant interruptions, really annoying."
Cons: "The company failed to transfer my checked-in bag to the next flight during the transfer apparently"
Pros: "I didn't feel cramped in a Window Seat. Two meals were served during the flight. It was nice to get back to being fed something other than skippy snacks on an airline flight."
Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."
Pros: "The crew was very comfortable speaking two languages and friendly. They also had air conditioning! This was great because it was strangely hot in Paris and we were sweating profusely. And our last air france experience we were so hot and it was aweful. Even though it was like an hour and a half flight they still served us sandwiches ,really good."
Pros: "nice crew; excellent check in experience!"
Cons: "boarding in Riyadh is always a nightmare. and as many have noted, the seats are too close for the average size of many boarding in Riyadh"
Pros: "Friendly crew; comfort; punctuation. Fast boarding"
Cons: "Simple food - very small amounts. No entertainment."
Pros: "There were 4 of us flying from Atlanta, there was a great amount of leg room, tvs were nice, remote control for the tv fit into the seat, the way the plane was laid out, the 4 of us sat in a middle row, which meant no window seat (which my sister was disappointed), dinner options were great, wine was complementary"
Cons: "My only problem was that there wasn't any air flow and until someone told them how hot they think it is, it was a very sweaty situation. I couldn't sleep because of how hot it was and I didn't think to tell the crew because I didn't know they would care."
Pros: "It was a fine flight"
Cons: "no specific feedback"
Cons: "Left a little late for no apparent reason."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Flight attendant staff were friendly and very courteous."
Cons: "Vegetarian food choices are too limited. Snack and beverage availability on long flights like this are too few and far between."
Cons: "Better communication on board. It was difficult to hear and to understand announcements, which were few."
Cons: "Punctuality. My flight was delayed over 1.5 hour."
Pros: "Good organization for connecting flights, since first one departed one hour late"

Pros: "Very friendly crew , free beer"
Cons: "being 100% on time with take off"

Cons: "Flight attendants a little cold but not nasty"
Pros: "All stuff members spoke good English."

Cons: "It was horrible. They canceled my flight so I couldn’t go. They have stolen my $$$ :("
Cons: "Flights were very late, had to take different flights, arriving 5h later and too late for an appointment. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Nice plane. Crew was great"
Cons: "Boarding in Chicago was late and seemed confused; partly because of gat configuration. Not much choice in entertainment"
Cons: "a worst ever trip"
Pros: "Price, non-stop to Warsaw In flight entertainment options pretty good."
Cons: "Extremely cramped and uncomfortable seats. Cabin was hot and humid, no air vents to control temps."
Cons: "Flight from Chicago was delayed for two hours. Missed my connection flight to Odessa and still in Warsaw waiting for my flight to Odessa."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Plane was a little late,which was OK. The bigger problem is the lost luggage."
Pros: "The flight itself was not bad"
Cons: "Customer service was horrible at the airport from staff . They did not let us board , even though we got there on time from Chicago and people were still in line. We waiting 6 hours , and the flight was delayed another 1 hour and a 1/2.. customer service did not accommodate us in our time in Poland . We had to pay additional fees for transportation from airport to hotel"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over 8 Hours. Terrible experience."
Cons: "Crew moved extremely slow despite a delay. (E.g. we could have departed sooner if they moved quicker and were more organized. Boarding process was poorly managed and chaotic. Total lack of communication about the delay. Missed our connecting flight due to the delay and had to beg for info about how to get a new flight."
Pros: "Service is good, flight crew are helpful and attentive, meals are good. Entertainment is good."
Cons: "Unfortunately the flight was delayed by an hour so boarding became frantic and stressful. We had already left the gate and the plane was taxiing and some people were still not sitting in seats - I suppose that's fellow passengers for you - and they were told by flight attendants to get into their seats. Economy seats are very cramped so it's an uncomfortable and probably not healthy experience for that long. The flight delay meant that there was high stress in Warsaw to make the connecting flight. Why transit passengers need to be subjected to security checks and clearance I do not understand. We have just got off an international flight - transit passengers surely aren't combined with new passengers who have not been through security in Warsaw."
Pros: "LOT does great with boarding, food, and entertainment. The food is very tasty and plentiful. The boarding process is smooth and the people are very nice. And the selection of movies and TV is very broad, and the equipment works well."
Cons: "The crew on the plane are short with passengers and don't seem to go out of their way to make passengers comfortable. This lack of effort stands out very much in the background of super-uncomfortable seats on Dreamliners. There is relatively much less space available for passengers between rows and between seats themselves. It makes long flights exceptionally painful, especially for people who are not extra small or young. I have gotten to the point that I choose to fly different airlines even if that means a bit more money and an extra stop because I cannot handle 8 or 9 hours on the Dreamliners, especially when the flights are full."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Modern aircraft."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating for long-haul flight. I survived, though."
Pros: "NOTHING...!!!!!! ZEROOO STARS....very unprofesionall...., this was my first and last time traveling with this aholes..........!!!"
Cons: "I don’t wana waste my time anymore talking about this f...... joke of company.......necer again"
Pros: "Friendly crew and good food, blanket and pillow was nice"
Cons: "Not much space between seats, so cramped! Lot of people moving around and talking loud while trying to sleep"
Pros: "On time, smooth flight"
Cons: "Boarding chaotic. Switched gates (m5 on boarding pass, actually m4. Shoud have announced or left a note."
Pros: "The biggest supprise for me was the 787 Dreamliner which is very comfortable. You do everything to provide an excellent experience. The crew was very nice and helpful, You are the best! I don't fly often but LOT is my favorite company to fly to Odessa. Thank you for great service!"
Pros: "Enough space to sit"
Cons: "Everything in English language was barely understandable"
Pros: "Quick boarding, clean aircraft"
Cons: "Rude flight attendants, tv screen not working"
Pros: "Seemed good overall. Was delayed a little getting out, but pilot picked up the pace and landed on time. Only issue is the movie selection, mostly year+ old, and only polish tv shows."
Pros: "The staff were great. Very attentive and professional. I wasn't aware that you have to order a vegetarian meal in advance. When I told the gentleman that I needed a vegetarian meal he said there were none available but he did his best to accommodate me with putting together bits and pieces of other meals. He did manage to find a vegetarian meal for me for breakfast."
Cons: "I am a vegan. I thought they would have some vegetarian meals for dinner without me having to order them in advance. They should have more options than chicken or beef."
Pros: "Everything from the flight, food & service exceeded expectations. Business class was exceptional."
Pros: "I like that I flew on a modern aircraft with good amenities."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2.5 hours. Check in took longer than it has ever taken."
Cons: "Missed boarding by 3 min"
Cons: "No new movies or no tv shows to watch on a 9hr flight. If I knew I would have downloaded movies on my phone or on a usb stick(u have the possibility of using those). Horrible food, cannot even describe! No free alcohol. If you pay cash for the alcohol you end up paying double as if you pay with Credit card. I paid for 3 drinks, were brought only 2 and when I asked for the 3rd one they didn't understand what I want. Crew speaks only polish, they have little knowledge of English language. They are not helpful and they don't care about passengers! Delays on every flight, Friday LOT airline doesn't have to many flights out of Warsaw! Be aware, in the event of a delay and loosing your connecting flight you might end up spending a night in Warsaw. I WILL NEVER USE LOT AGAIN and I will make sure to spread the word!!!"
Pros: "Service was very good"
Cons: "The cabin was quite warm; a bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "The Dreamliner was a nice aircraft and the entertainment screens were in great condition."
Cons: "Seating was tight as usual on all planes. The seat cushion was worn down and was hard. Crew were not overly friendly but weren't rude either. They won't be winning any customer service awards. They didn't offer drinks as often as United has especially on an international flight. They need to offer water more frequently."

Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "Wide, comfy seats, nice crew, good food"
Cons: "Poor selection of movies"
Cons: "Nor enough beverage for such a long flight Ice cube?"

Cons: "The plane was seven hours late/"
Pros: "The crew was polite and responsive."
Cons: "Turbulences over the Great Lakes, but nobody can control that!"
Cons: "We had 2 people traveling. The first person thought the food was very poor. Her other flight overseas was with Lufthansa and so she expected food similar to their flight. It was not at all. The quality of foods was dramatically different and Lufthansa even offered complimentary wine & beer with the meal. The second person needed a gluten-free menu due to gluten sensitivity. However, her meals also came dairy-free, so she wasn't even given real butter. She was offered no salad dressings so her salad was eaten dry. The chicken was extremely dry. The 2nd meal (breakfast-like) was horrible dry bread with cucumber, lettuce and tomato -- no meat, no cheese, no protein at all! The regular meals were also given yogurt, where she just got cut up fruit. Protein is extremely important in each meal and LOT failed to provide this. When asking a steward whether she could at least get a yogurt like the regular passengers, they were unable to help her."
Cons: "Delayed flight Lost baggage No one could explain what to do.."
Pros: "Comfortable, great service and leg room, lots of movie and tv choices. Great flight!"
Pros: "I really liked flying polish airlines. Staff all around was excellent."
Cons: "I didn't realize I needed their headphones to watch movies."
Pros: "Beautiful 787 Dreamliner. Online checkin is great, except, we still had to check in at the counter to get the paper ticket."
Cons: "Seats were so tight. No room a all. Sat in an aisle seat. Got bumped every time someone walked through the aisle. Friend of mine sat three rows behind me and had the same complaint. Flight attendants were very friendly when they walked the carts down the aisle; however, if you wanted something when they weren't offering, they were a little cold."
