Over 3 hours of delay without any assistance from klm

Pros: "Amazing services .. on time just exactly .. I feel really happy onboard KLM ❤️"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur.

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Cons: "They stole my money"
Pros: "787 is a great airplane. The 3-3-3 seat configuration leaves enough seat width to be just comfortable in coach."

Pros: "Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight"
Cons: "Flight was not on time and got to destination very very late pier management of aircrafts"

Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "Comfortable flight to Amsterdam for vacation in UK. More meals than expected. Also wasn't expecting some of the comforts offered to "regular" class seats like eye masks, ear plugs, pillows and blankets. It was an overnight flight, so maybe that should have been expected, but I don't think we had those 4 years ago when traveling overseas."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet min characters."
Pros: "Atmosphere, crew were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "Seats were a little too narrow, and quite uncomfortable when a broad shouldered person is sitting next to you"
Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"
Air France service was superb. The airline did their best to expedite the boarding process even with the constant changes of Covid19 guidelines
Pros: "There is a nothing to mention that was memorable or comfortable."
Cons: "I asked for an upgrade as we are on our honeymoon. The ground staff only wanted to get us on the plane and not try in anyway to recognize us. Our seats were very poor quality, you should immediately replace them! I would have rather stood than sit on the flight. The in flight entertainment is so poor. Absolutely disappointing especially with the head sets not working because of poor ports of connection. The food was absolutely tragic. You should fire your catering company. I expect more from your airline and I was disappointed all the way through. I hope you can provide my wife and I better service and an upgrade when we fly back to Washington DC on Flight AF 0054 from CDG to IAD. I work in the luxury hotel sector, and even the door men and room attendants have more autonomy to wow our guests. Flying AF does not want me to spend any more money with your airline in the future."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "In-flight system had some errors"
Cons: "The conditions were very cramped. The entertainment system was quite old and had very little selection. My entertainment system actually stopped working all together. I called for assistance from my seat a couple of times, but nobody came."
Cons: "The entertainment system was very old with minimum selection. My entertainment system actually stopped working. The seating area was very cramped. I called for service a couple of times from my seat, but nobody came."

Pros: "Great crew and entertainment. Terrible experience at CDG airport but that’s the airports fault."

Cons: "Explain me to take the bag on time.it was almost left in the airport."
Pros: "Boarding procedures and crew were top. Wines and beverages excellent and even in super economy water was served several times"
Cons: "The food could have been much better, should consider doing everything organic. As it was, the chicken in the meal was awful, the dessert terrible. The rice in the salad hard, almost uncooked. The only good quality food was the bread and the cheese"

Cons: "Check in process running smoothly and better announcement of gate change"

Cons: "Engine noise in the cabin is loud."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "The usual Air France flights to Rome, that I have been flying for years, are now operated by Joon. For a couple months nothing changed, except the way the crew dressed. But now Joon is showing its true nature as a LOW COST airline.Seats cramped. Snacks and apple juice are now available for purchase only."
Pros: "The food, beverages and choices of movies, entertainment There was a medical emergency that caused the flight to land in Canada. This was handled very professionally - I hope the passenger ended up getting the care needed and is doing well."
Pros: "More experienced, professional crew, better food and service."
Cons: "A screaming child for 8 hours (understood this is not their fault, but it did make the journey unpleasant). Old aircraft with small screens, no power etc."
Cons: "Entertainment screen did not work; in neighboring seat it could not be switched off when we wanted to sleep; sourly employees everywhere (re-booking counter an exception); food close not being edible and cold; I forgot my watch on when going through security in the Air France terminal; when I started to say "sorry" I was yelled at by the screener who said that she will do the talking; she sent me back through the scanner twice without my watch, then once more with the carry-on and made sure that I went to the end of a very long line to wait for another screening rather than having me just go through the scanner without my watch. Needless to say, there was nothing else suspicious about me once the watch was removed. Eager to exercise her power, the security person did not seem to consider that she slowed down a long line of people waiting to be screened. I should add that I am 73 yrs old grey haired female who has traveled a lot both for pleasure and business during my entire life, often to some difficult places and that I do not argue with or provoke those in power in a situation like this. The yelling and the sending me repeatedly through the scanner, which did not beep once the watch was removed, was beyond anything I had experienced anywhere else. The sending me to the very end of the line seemed outright spiteful. (I did miss the plane connection.)"
Pros: "Quiet! No noise-canceling earphones needed. Delicious food."
Pros: "Good seat width Great movie selection Great food and drinks Nice and large A380"
Cons: "The interface of the screens seemed old Need to anticipate the needs of the customer better For example, they brought me my special meal first, but I had to wait 30 minutes later to get a drink to accompany it. The food was getting old. Did not see any newspaper/periodical selection. That would have been nice."
Cons: "We were 2h late"
Pros: "Food, service, comfort"
Pros: "Nice staff, very professional and helpful."
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "We were transported to the plane which was quite some distance to the plane via bus after climbing down steep stairs from the departure gate area. Then we had to climb steep steps in extremely hot weather. We were then delayed for a hour in the plane in very hot conditions as the plane had its air conditioning off and the ground air conditioning was not put on. We were swearing in the heat for an hour!! We arrived at our destination and hour and half late!!"
Pros: "The crew and flight was faultless"
Cons: "We were not advised of a flight number change or checking in location change. This could have resulted in us missing our flight."
Pros: "Priority boarding with kids"
Cons: "Nothing special just like easyJet ir Rayanair"
Pros: "Sometimes you get surprised, with this specific flight, we had an excellent young and perfect cabin crew. Thanks, Joon!"
Pros: "The friendliness and courtesy of the staff."
Cons: "One piece of my luggage was left behind in Paris."
Pros: "The noise-canceling headset is good."
Cons: "The premium economy seat is not reclined at all. The neighbor's seat is too much flexible. This is a maintenance problem. We report these problems to the crew, though there ignored... I should have chosen an economy class seat."
Pros: "The space and the people"
Cons: "The company simply lets passengers board a fulled booked flight with far too much luggage. Result, take off 20 minutes late because there was not enough room for luggage in the overhead compartments. I was flying with just a small backpack that went under the seat"
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Very cramped. Poor leg room also with.metal bars under seats that further. Limited foot room. Terrible options in movies. The seats in front of us reclined so far that I couldn’t do anything but stare at the back of the seat anyway."
Pros: "Got pillow, blanket, headphone and eye cover"
Cons: "Older plane Very small tv screen Didn't get the bread roll with my dinner. Asked for it but she didn't bring it to me. No usb plug to charge"

Cons: "My flight was cancelled, I was sent around to multiple desks and terminals and no one wanted to assist me, then my luggage was lost."
Pros: "Traveled fron SFO to CDG on AF in business class on an A 380. Lounge in SFO was smallish and not many choices in the food bar. Boarding was smooth. my second ride on A 380 in business and this trip reminded me quickly why I did not care for the A 380 on my previous trip. It is a huge plane with a huge sized business class which makes the cost less worth it compared to a Boeing. The crew were extremely helpful and caring. The food was acceptable. The seats on the plane were not comfortable in the lying position. Took a cab to our hotel in Paris (1st Arr) for a flat 50 euros. No meters."
Cons: "Arriving in CDG and facing a slow immigration with the passengers of this huge plane. I didn't care for the baggage delivery system. We were waiting for an hour only to realize that the arrival port for our luggage was changed."
Pros: "Seat room was better on most economy flights. The food was good and the glass of champagne did not hurt at all. The aircraft flew very smoothly from takeoff to landing."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. In a French company I expect much more. The entertainment system on the airbus a380 was like an enchant IT system from the past. Very poor reaction time. Very messy and not people oriented at all. Especially after KLM's And Delta experience."
Cons: "Meal choice missing kosher non-gluten combination."
Pros: "Free drinks and snack!"
Pros: "Panamá airport is a disaster, unorganized and dirty"
Cons: "Panamá airport"
Pros: "quick flight 10 min ahead schedule"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1 hour 30 minutes. After over 24 hours of travel this was not appreciated. Also no lounge access at Toronto airport."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and online entertainment system had a lot to offer. Online check-in does save time, it's a shorter queue & you just have to drop off your luggage."
Cons: "Eithad charges for seat selection now! Not seats with extra legroom or any other perks. But any seat in Economy if you select it 24 hours before departure, anywhere from $25 to $45. Seat selection is free if flight departure is less than 24 hours away but available seats are all random."
Cons: "Checking was slow at IAD and flight got delayed in Abu Dhabi and there was not good communication on delay."
Pros: "I enjoyed the services, the crew and the food and beverage"
Cons: "The WiFi services. I ordered the lite service for $4.95 and the 30 mb was finished in less that 10 minutes. Not sufficient"
Cons: "Crew was very rude when giving veg meals. Even though we had confirmed veg meals multiple times with the airline prior to boarding, they still did not know that we had a specially requested Meal. After notifying the crew of this, one member gave us an extra meal. Another extremely rude staff member then proceeded to yell at us for eating meal. This was extremely uncalled for and has severly ruined the reputation of this airline in our eyes. The customer should still be addressed with some common courtesy and not be treated as if they are beneath the crew members, as if we are at fault for the crew's own carelessly stupid mistakes and lack of organization and proper communication"
Pros: "short lay over in Abudhabi. Flight was on time."
Cons: "At Abu Dhabi airport my mother had to change her plane , where assistance for elderly and wheel chair was extremely limited . Also the food on the plane was not as good as the food service on most international flights."

Cons: "Crew was bad/ food options were horrible/ boarding wasn’t very comfortable/ space in the aircraft was bad/ entertainment was limited/"
Cons: "The on boarding staff was rude and unhelpful. The seats of the same ticket were not issued aside each other. The food is below mediocre compared to Emirates. Would take Emirates anytime over Ethihad moving forward."
Cons: "We lost an item and while we are in airport waiting for next flight even though we know it would have got recovered by airport staff there is no way of getting it back unless we download a form online , print , fill the form and sign , scan and send it in email to lost and found team. This is unlikely and complex process for anyone while in airport to get access to print, scan etc. we wish this was more simpler process Cabin was too cold and staff deny bluntly to make any adjustment saying some other set of passengers complained that cabin is warm.. I have not seen anyone who could sit around with out blanket on them and we had to get double blankets and wrap ourselves in there"
Pros: "Vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Due to the delay of the first flight, I had to run until my heart aches to catch my second flight in time. Not many people spoke English"

Cons: "Too ismail for the seat"
Cons: "Food Asked several times for ice/water and it was not brought"
Pros: "Staff was polite and curtious"
Cons: "Overall bad experience with Etihad Airways flying from Dulles to Abu Dhabi. I won't be flying with them again. 1. ETA: I had to apply for an electronic travel authority (ETA) (essentially an electronic tourist visa) twice despite the fact that I had been granted the visa originally by the Government of Australia two weeks prior to my flight. For some reason, airline staff said they could not see the visa information attached to my passport. I showed them the emails from the Government of Australia stating that my application had been successful along with the relevant reference number. The staff told me to apply for another one and let them know once I had. They informed me that this "happened all the time" with their customers traveling to Australia. If it is happening "all the time," Etihad Airways should check their database to ensure there are no glitches. It's Australia, not a third-world country, so it's likely on the Airline's end. The crew did not offer to look up my reference number or otherwise do any leg work to verify the visa that I already had, even when the application page stated that I already had a visa for the relevant time period! This stressed me out just a few hours before I was supposed to take off and could have been handled with a little effort by the staff. 2. Baggage Weight: They are sticklers for baggage weight, weighing your carry-on both prior to check in (it must be under 7 kg) and again right before boarding the plane. Literally no other airline has done this in my entire experience except the cheapo ones. Thankfully, I had a big purse and was able to shift the baggage weight around to get on because they pulled me out of line to board the plane. It's all going on the same plane so it makes no sense at all. This needlessly drags out the boarding process. 3. Crew: They sat a man who was coughing incessantly on my row (I had two empty seats next to me). The crew member accompanied him to my aisle while he told me where he would sit. The crew did not ask me to make space or anything (of course I would have said yes), but this particular gentleman had a cough and made me sick for my trip. I was not happy, and that situation could have been handled so much better. Bottom Line: Do yourself a favor and fly with Emirates. They're far better and professional and are similarly priced. Had none of these issues with them. (Added bonus: the food's a lot better as well)."
Pros: "Excellent flight crew, remarkably comfortable seating—every aspect of the trip was above my expectations"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing"
Pros: "US immigration was a breeze at Abu Dhabi. Online check in was not working. Abu Dhabi airport had a lot of options for passengers in transit. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Food was terrible on the flight. Baggage was not handled properly."
Cons: "On the boarding time thy check you handcarry wait and on that time if you have extra wait they want to throw I don’t like that because on the counter if they check and tell you have exsis wait you have a option to give your extra stuff to your attendant but they give hard time to pas Sanger’s I really hait that sevice"
Pros: "The Airbus A321 flight was much more comfortable than the 1st leg. The service again was good"
Cons: "There wasn't anything not to like."
Pros: "Overall trip was fine but nothing to be thrilled about with it."
Cons: "-my longest flight was completely full and I was sitting between 2 good size men which was just not comfortable. -I asked if I can a seat swap but crew seems to not care much about it. -No snacks in between for a change. I asked for something to munch but there is nothing which they can offer. finally I had to ask for a fruit or something. I am sure nuts, crackers is something they will have on the flight. - they don't give out socks or toohbrush/paste or anything like that. no eye pad incase if you want to sleep peacefully. -crew was very frin"

Pros: "Nothing. I would never ever choose Etihad airline again"
Cons: "At Washington Dulles airport the whole staff was really rude and unprofessional. I had only one hand carry and it was 9 kg. I requested them that I can buy a bag and can divide the stuff in two bags. But supervisor who seemed Indian was really racist and he kept insisting that we are flying in 5 minutes. Either you have to pay penalty for this hand carry or you can cancel your flight. I have never ever seen this kind of behavior from anyone specially from a supervisor. I ended up paying $300 extra for only 2 kg extra weight in my hand carry. I would recommend my whole family and friends not to choose this airline anymore."

Pros: "Staff was wonderful & bathrooms were kept clean which was nice. Food was ok, a highlight was a Klondike bar at like 3am. That made my flight!"

Cons: "Crew and the food was very poor. This is the only long international flight 10 hours that served a night grate dinner and the crews got disappeared the rest of the flight and no breakfast."

Cons: "I am filing a complaint with regard to my recent flight on Dec 31, 2016 from Barcelona (BCN) back to San Francisco, US (SFO) on Air Canada, with a connection in Toronto, Canada (Flight # AC1915 and AC739). My wife and I were denied boarding at Barcelona because we did not have an ETA to visit Canada. However, we actually qualify for the Transit Without Visa Program, allowing us to transit through Canada to the US without an ETA. Please see below. My wife and I arrived at BCN airport in Barcelona before 11 am, more than 3 hours prior to the departure time of 2 pm for flight AC1915 to Toronto. Please see the attached bus ticket as proof, indicating we boarded the bus at 10:30 am at Barcelona city center. This is more than enough time for check-in processes. I knew about the ETA requirement prior to travel. However, I also knew that, as a Taiwanese national, we qualify for the Transit Without Visa program, allowing us to transit through Canada to the US without an ETA. The Canadian Government website states that: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/visas-all.asp#eta-exemptions “The following persons are exempt from the eTA requirement: • Foreign nationals seeking to transit through Canada under Transit Without Visa or China Transit Program.” Furthermore, also on the Canadian Government website: http://www.cic.gc.ca/ENGLISH/helpcentre/answer.asp?qnum=1092&top=16 “Travellers whose planes refuel in Canada going to and from the United States, as well as participants in the China Transit Program and Transit Without Visa Program, do not need to have an eTA or a visa to transit Canada.” We qualify for the Transit Without Visa Program because according to the Canadian Government website: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/department/twov/travellers.asp • We are citizens of Taiwan • We hold valid Taiwanese passports (please see attached passport photo) • We hold valid US visas (please see attached green card photo) • We are traveling to Canada on an approved airline: Air Canada Rouge • We transit through an approved Canadian airport (Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, terminal 1, without a change of terminal between flights) • We hold a confirmed onward ticket to the US the same day (AC739 to San Francisco, departing at 6:55 pm the same day) • We arrive during operating hours for the US in-transit pre-clearance facility. During check-in, we were told that we needed an ETA and denied us boarding. I tried explaining to the supervisor on duty that day that an ETA is actually not required for us since we qualify for Transit Without Visa, using the arguments I presented above in this letter, as well as showing him the websites from the Canadian Government. However, the supervisor insisted that we needed an ETA, citing the general policy that Taiwanese citizens require ETA to visit Canada. What he did not realize was that we satisfy a very unique case that did NOT require an ETA."

Cons: "Delay on return & boarding was really slow! Not sure if it was the computers or attendants."
Pros: "crew was awesome"
Cons: "that people can recline their seats in coach. very uncomfortable and there's really not enough room to do this."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible."
Pros: "The flight from DC to Toronto was late around four hours and after we got on the plane We went back and we were waiting at the airport while get more fuel and which repaired the fault on the plane. so I was late for my next flight to FrankfurtSo I was put on a flight to Frankfurt with a connection in Lisbon.In the end, my suitcase was lost and I got it only two days later. Never I will no longer use AirCanada small planes !"
Pros: "Same. I was well taken care of despite the weather delay. Crew was friendly but more stressed and a little slow. Seats were comfortable and there was more leg room than normal."
Cons: "Not enough time with the lights off so we could sleep easier during the long flight."
Cons: "Not offered earphones"
Cons: "Cancelled flight and didn't even tell me a reason. They couldn't even make reservation for hotel. Hotel sent me back to airport because i didn't have voucher which AIr Canada guys said they can't make one? Everything didn't make sense. And they told me not to come again. They took like... whole day to book another flight. And i had hard time understanding what they were saying."
Cons: "Air Canada lost my luggage, customer service was very vague and unhelpful, did not get my bag back for almost a week."
Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "My "window" seat was beside a wall. So i actually didn't even have a wi dow seat, not really."
Pros: "We arrived in Istanbul the day of the attack. Air Canada let us change our flights, no charge, no questions asked. We were able to fly through Venice and avoided the Coup attempt. Thank you Air Canada so much!"
Cons: "The hold times were long for customer service but that may have just been the times we happened to be calling and due to the attack."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "It was delayed which caused my connection to be cancelled and rebooked for next day. Was extremly uncomfortable and very expensive"
Pros: "On the whole it was a pleasant experience despite the flight being late."
Cons: "I thought that the flight being delayed by almost 2 hours was terrible. That should not have happened."
Pros: "It was nice of airline to set up an extra flight in the afternoon so we didn't need to spend even more time in Toronto airport."
Pros: "Decent legroom"
Cons: "Food, low quality and low choice entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing - they were immature, unprofessional, nervous, unhelpful, and visibly shaken by relatively side problems."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours but not technically cancelled, which the ground crew blamed upon the flight crew and vice versa. The failure to cancel caused us to be unable to rebook, and subsequent avoidable delays arising from Air Canada's ineptitude caused us to be two,days late for arrival. The problem was solvable with some simple rebooking, but the ground,crew failed to assist, then the flight crew, when we finally left five hours late, was Impersonable, unhelpful, uninformed, and utterly unprepared. It was a terrible, second rate, poor quality experience and I would not recommend Air Canada to anyone. Your airline needs serious training in Professionalism and responsiveness."
Pros: "Love the new 787, don't know how I can fly in another airplane again now."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "There was no entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating and the flight itself was great"
Cons: "We had a 2 hour delay and almost missed our connection"
Pros: "Nice to be able to recharge mobile devices while seated."
Cons: "I made a round trip to Japan from Boston with Air Canada, flying out in mid-June and returning in the beginning of July, and I was rather disappointed to find that the choice of movies was more or less the same both ways, at least I did not see much change in new releases. I was expecting new movies to be added on my return flight from Japan since the month has changed from June to July but I did not find new movies, so I just read on my iPad. It would have also been nice if there was an option for inflight WiFi access."
Cons: "I was not able to board this flight. And it was such a disappointment and a shocking first for me. I reached the airport and on being checked at the counter, I was told that I cannot board because I don't have a Canadian visa. It was shocking to learn that I needed visa for a 1.5 hour layover. The website should give a prompt or should share the requirements. And all my ticket money got wasted."
Cons: "Flight left almost one hour late"
Pros: "The ground crew were always nice and friendly. They worked hard to deal with delayed flight, missed connection, and tight alternate connection. Flight crew were also friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Four-hour flight delay released in one hour increments without announcement -gate displayed "on time departure" for the duration of the delay. Our hassles were compensated with meager meal vouchers given too late, There was no pre-boarding on our flight (just one big cattle call) which made boarding with child and gear extra awkward,"
Cons: "The pressurization of the cabin was very uncomfortable for me. I fly a lot and only notice this like one in 30 flights. I was very swollen after and felt the pressure during the flight."
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed and we were not kept informed. In fact, the airport boards still displayed that this flight was on time, which was not correct. I kept getting emails of a change in schedule, but no reason was given by personnel at the gate. This was really a bad situation for me as I was meeting my daughter in Toronto who was flying alone with her infant son and she needed my help."
Cons: "Slow and stupid some of passages"
Cons: "Was not told a transit visa was necessary to fly through Canada. Denied boarding in Nairobi on way over and had to book on another airline."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful."
Here food was okay. No entertainment. No provision for charging mobiles.
The crew & passengers were not strictly observing the Covid-19 precautions. Some of the food on the menu was not available although I was seated in the second row of business class!
Internet service very bad and there is no option to refund
Pros: "Everything was okay, except they have really bad transition from the two flights in the airport . And suitcase was delivered to me the next day, and was opened and a bag of 230$ was stolen"
Cons: "Don't steal people’ stuff"
Cons: "A problem in adjusting my return flight caused a cancelation of the return flight, customer service was not available at night time (flight was early morning ) a visit to there airport office had nothing to offer but by a new overinflated ticket and then discuss the rest with HQ or use the phone nearby for technical support that took me 20 minutes to understand that it is going to be busy for the rest of the night (time was 1:30 am) approximately"
Pros: "All is ok Just one of my bag broke big time"
Cons: "Careful more for all luggage"
Pros: "Seat comfy, entertainment program plenty, and hosting staff very friendly and professional. I particularly loved the prayer area in the back of the plane."
Cons: "Hot food is not great, and lacks the veggies essential to any healthy diet. Even the salad offered with the meals was not tasty."
Pros: "Crew members were very friendly."
Pros: "The food was not up to the mark. The sandwich was not good. Even the juice was not kept in the cooler felt it was bad. TV was not working Food tray was flakey."
Cons: "Seats have thin padding with vinyl covers like bus seats. Rather than serve snacks, they set the cart in front of the emergency exit (!!) and made it self-serve. Most of the people on the flight are from countries where people do not queue, so it was a scrum. I've done this flight three times in the past four months. The movies haven't changed AT ALL. I was seated next to two terrible, nasty little boys who were apparently flying unattended! Isn't there a policy for children traveling alone? More to the point, they were literally wrestling at 3 am and infuriating everyone within earshot, yet the crew did nothing. An omelette is not folded scrambled eggs. If you fly through Saudi Arabia, you have to claim your baggage, take a 20 minute BUS ride between terminals and then check your bags again. Ridiculous."
Cons: "The flight was postponed several times. and service at the plane was poor. It was a 12 hours flight and we was supposed to have one meal and a snack! Thank god I had some extra food for my kid."
Cons: "Non friendly staff"
Cons: "Food, airplane age, they boarded us and then kept us inside airplane for 45 mins because of bad weather at destination airport. They should confirm flight info before boarding."
Cons: "تم الاعتذار عن تقديم الكافيه"
Cons: "No thing"
Pros: "Very bad customer service Saudi Arabia"
Cons: "After 12 hours flying we landed ro go to the flight going to Cairo the staff at riyadh are main rude careless helpless not understanding what is maining long trip they treat my wife as maid"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Because I booked thru Kayak, Saudi would not allow internet access to my record. This meant my frequent flier info was not in my record and my seat was assigned at the airport. So instead of a seat near the front of guest class I was way in the back. SAUDIA is notorious for lots of children and babies on their flights. I had a 5 year old kicking my seat all the way, even after being asked to stop."
Pros: "The crew was very rude"
Cons: "Disturbance from co passengers"
Pros: "Half of the plane was empty so I was able to sit anywhere and have the whole row to myself"
Cons: "Too many turbulence. Food was mediocre. Crew was professionally subpar."
Pros: "Im a 6'3 guy, so let room in economy class was very important. The economy class was very comfortable and spacious for a 12hr flight. The food was good and the customer service was top notch. No complaints. I would definitely fly Saudia Airlines again. Thank you!!!"
Pros: "The staff were very accommodating"
Cons: "Never was it mentioned that Saudi airlines has Islamic prayer rooms where people pray loudly at any time of night on this over night flight. I could not get any sleep with all the loud chanting."
Cons: "They Lost my luggage and we’re uncooperative about it"
Pros: "Clean , comfort , helpful"
Cons: "The flight was not on time . Been waited for for more than three hours late for no reason . Thank you"
Pros: "The crew were patient to everyone's requests. Food was more than sufficient."
Cons: "Seats were too small and space was tight."
Pros: "Spaces are huge you can relax and enjoy the wide sets"
Cons: "EVERYTHING. Dirty bathrooms; no places to sit; no facilities; full lounge. Passengers were sleeping on the floor at the duty free stores. HORRIBLE airport. A new one will be open soon, but who knows when."
Pros: "Food was good, the cabin crew were professional and friendly."
Cons: "The intro video said laptop charging is available however, the sockets supported only USB charging."
Pros: "Boarding office well treating and provided very good service. Food was good"
Cons: "The crew on the airplan was not well trained. Limited entertainment for kids"
Pros: "The seat in Y class was comfortable. The boarding started on time."
Cons: "The cabin crew were mostly atrocious! I asked for something like THREE times before they brought it to me. (Granted I patiently waited for a while between each interval of asking again). The male cabin crew at boarding was like a statue; didn’t smile, barely greeted me & was rude later on in the flight when I asked him for headphones! The food was disgusting! But the female cabin crew who brought me my special was nice after she couldn’t figure out which special meal was mine. The cabin crew overall seemed disorganized. However, a male cabin crew named Munir was nice. I flew on SV 302; CAI-JED."
Pros: "Services was great, cordial staff"
Cons: "Poor catering services. I was starving whole 21 hour flight from Dhaka to NYC. They don’t sever enough meal to passengers so avoid this airline"
Pros: "It’s an amazing trip. Best of all having a place for worshipping"
Cons: "The WiFi never worked in most of my flight."
Pros: "Very nice and comfortable flight. Good crew, entertainment and food is good. The best best part they deducted a special space for prayer where you can’t find it on any other airline."
Pros: "It was not crowded. Found three seats across and was able to lie down and sleep"
Cons: "Delay at the counter to get the boarding pass. I have checked online and also I had to use the long lane. Moreover, the space between seat rows was too tight and I couldn’t sleep."

Pros: "Seat spaces."
Cons: "Entertainment was a bit disturbing because it keeps coming on and off."
Pros: "Checking in was quick. In service was good."
Cons: "I was not able to select my seat or reserve a wheelchair online. I had to call. I also did not like the wheelchair service was not provided till the airplane door. I was dropped off at the gate."
