Cons: "Boarding time needs to be longer. Also, too little time between connecting flights."
Cons: "To my shock, my boarding pass while scanning to enter the aircraft was rejected with wild flashing red lights saying my trip was cancelled. Someone else was given my emergency row seat, booked and confirmed 24 hours ahead. It was a full flight but I got a middle seat and continued my long journey home from Kenya"
Pros: "Customer service is excellent."
Pros: "Very attentive staff, good food and drinks."
Cons: "We paid for upgraded seats that were still very tight."
Pros: "787 is an excellent plane and I could sleep a little"
Cons: "I was boarding at gate C4. Doesn't anyone get it ! Using the word "bomb" in airports is a big no-no however C4 is OK? Even a little old lady knows what C4 stands for."
Cons: "It was delayed"
Cons: "Nasty passport control person at gate check in"
Pros: "Though our flight got delayed, we arrived almost on time."
Cons: "Because the flight was delayed, boarding seemed a bit chaotic. Everybody tried to board at the same time. The seat had technical issues - it would either recline or be upright. The crew had to spend quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to return from a flat bed to the upright position. Entertainment was re-booted 3-4 times during the flight to get it to work consistently."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, food was ok."
Pros: "The seats in exit row were large enough for me to straighten my legs"
Cons: "Very rude attendants. Also if you sit in the exit row they don’t let you put ANYTHING on your lap or by your feet, even a sweatshirt that you remove for a moment. I have never had this problem on any other airline."
Pros: "Service was minimal but sufficient, Food was good"
Cons: "Seats 23A, 23B were extra cramped on the B777-300ER, even though they are sold as "extra comfort"! due to the video screen taking space between the seats. The seats were so cramped that the overhead light kept coming on, unknowingly, when people shifted in their seats."
Pros: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Cons: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Pros: "It was an 8.5 hour flight and we got fed 2 meals, 2 snacks and had lots of beverage breaks! We were delayed a little but it was due to an issue in France, not anything to do with the airplane, and the captain found a solution faster than he had originally said he would (with the help of the tower of course)."
Cons: "The legroom in economy is just as bad as you would expect."
Cons: "The same as the first flight, although it was a bit better, offering chocolates and a small breakfast, although they didn’t have an alternative to ham or yogurt for people who are not interested in them"
Pros: "On time departure; easy flight; seating was spacious"
Cons: "The extra charge for a bag!!!!!!!!!!! Would rather fly Southwest or Jet Blue or others that allow a mid size carry on"
Pros: "Professional crew"
Pros: "Delay at airport was awful. Gate was not announced ahead of time. By the time it was everything ok the terminal was closed. Some people appeared to have couches while I did not. Gate was at the end of the empty terminal. Wifi pass expired and no artery was offered even though the flight was delayed. Passengers were made to leave the gate to recheck passports. My bags were searched twice and while I fully support security this was excessive"
Cons: "Provide vouchers in consistent manner. Provide wifi alternatives. Don't use an empty terminal. Offer more toilets and water fountains."
Pros: "Legroom is too little"
Pros: "Nice sandwich and chocolate."
Pros: "Tried hard but cannot recollect one thing that was better than average."
Cons: "Not even a smile from the purser and one other crew member on the Swedish leg. The captain hurriedly "explained", no one understood him, why we were so delayed, but he did not apologize! Zurich airport has no charging sockets! (Ancient) All of terminal A has not a single one! No one supervised the loading passengers not to interfere with those passing by. It was a complete mess. We took off 50 minutes late from Zurich, with no apparent reason. Worst in years for me. We sat in the plane for 30 minutes and were not offered even water. Big fail! (btw, I am unusually so critical)."
Cons: "Paucity of games that might appeal to non children."
Pros: "My upgrade to first class. Service she good is good considering short flights"
Cons: "The fact that they made me check my carry on even though I was in first class. It fit in the plane on my first flight. Why wouldn't it fit on this plane!?"
Pros: "Crew was nice and I loved the TVs keeping us up to date on the flight and our connection. We were even early boarding."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Flight was not full and I was able to have several seats to spread out"
Pros: "crew was friendly, little snack was delicious"
Cons: "Just before landing in Zurich the flight attendant started to announce the gates for flight connections. I was on tight schedule trying to make my connection to Amsterdam. He first started to give my gate number, but then said there won't be flight to Amsterdam until the next day. I was very worried. When landing it was very difficult to find anyone working for Swiss to assist me. Then someone told me that my flight would be leaving in 3 minutes. I asked to be rushed through line, but everyone said not too worry because plane would wait for me. When I arrived at gate there was no one there. Then it took quite a while to find another Swiss employee to help me. There seemed to be a lot of confusion."
Pros: "It was nice to be given a 20 euro voucher for food and beverage, due to the 5 and a half hour flight delay."
Cons: "There was much confusion and no one seemed to know what was going on with this flight. By the time I reached Schipol all trains and trams had stopped. I had to pay an extra 40 euro for cab home that night."
Pros: "Good product, excellent food, great and attentive service"
Cons: "Set quality for Business leaves much to be desired. Feels like sitting in Y with middle seat free."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, everything was on time and extremely efficient. I don't have kids but I did notice how great the flight attendants were with the kids around me. Great job! Already recommended SWISS to friends and family"
Pros: "The attendants were cordial"
Cons: "The flight crew was horrible. The desk crew inept. A wheelchair was requested but not there on checkin. Pre boarding did not happen as was supposed to. Older person male at desk was rude, insulting and sarcastic. This did not happen on Boston end. The person was there with wheelchair at the Boston gate and assisted us. Not in Zurich. What about handicap travel? Swiss????"
Pros: "It was a very short flight. Thankfully very short."
Cons: "I paid extra for extra leg room and there seemed to be no difference in leg room between business class and economy class."
Cons: "My flight was pleasant"
Cons: "No where was it mentioned that the fair doesn’t include check in item. I had to pay Euro 30 extra."
Cons: "the new Boeing 777 is horrible... no space and small seats >> my feet were swollen, everything hurts the inflight- entertainment is integrated in the front seat, you can`t change screen if you are blinded as i wrote to the service center to change the seats (july 21st) i still have no answer on my mail.... service???? no more again..."
Pros: "Excellent food Attentive and smiling flight attendants"
Cons: "Cleaning after meal service was too quick. Then the galley was curtained off with no attendants in sight."
Pros: "As mentioned in my previous review about Edelweiss, I couldn't be any happier with the experience. I always fly back home (Zurich to NY) with Swiss airlines. I love the flight, crew and their performance. They make sure that you're comfortable and accommodate you to your every need. SWISS and Edelweiss will always be preferred by myself and I'll make sure to always recommend you to family and friends. Thank you for your outstanding and remarkable service."
Cons: "Delayed boarding due to overheated plane, when we did board it was still warm and we had to sit longer due to other mechanical issues. Wish they would have waited for all issues to be resolved before boarding."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Seat was broken. No leg room. Really no room at all if person in front is reclined."
Pros: "I loved the food, the crew, and the entertainment."
Pros: "Flight attendants were perfect, sincere, and friendly. Great selection of free movies."
Cons: "I could not open my laptop and do any work once the person in front of me put their seat back. Big time bummer."
Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Direct answer is "nothing"; however, it should be noted that this not a Swiss Air flight. It was a code share on a United Airlines flight."
Pros: "The chairs were actually more comfortable than the 777. The cheese bread sandwich they gave us was very tasty."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "3 hour delay Noisy cabin due to loud engines One could hardly heard the movie audio from the Headphones during movie viewing even after they were replaced"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and made a bad situation as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 3 hours for a issue with the pilot's chair. The movies reset in the middle of the showing."
Pros: "Courteous crew, good food."
Cons: "The beer selection could use some work."
Pros: "I like that there are multiple bathrooms onboard."
Cons: "The rows are so narrow between seats that your roll on suitcase will not fit. You have no elbow room in your seat. People who live in England are very rude and would not let those of us seated in front of them to deplane. Too bad there isn’t someway to make people wait their turn."
Pros: "I travelled on economy delight, flight was fully packed, yet it felt spacious and comfortable. Lightning was great. Food was yummy! And pilots gave us updates on air travel, and if there were any delays etc."
Cons: "Nothing. Had a great trip!"
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Food was good."
Pros: "The crew was very good and there was enough leg room."
Cons: "The dinner option was underwhelming."
Pros: "The boarding was fast."
Cons: "For starters our cabin crew were the worst. The first service I had ask for a snack and no napkins. Dinner service was like just chucking food down in front of you. Then a stewardess looks me dead in the face and passed me for the drink service, then she said she thought I was asleep."
Pros: "Crew were wonderful when I was nauseous from turbulence"
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"
Pros: "Food was great. Friendly stas staff."
Cons: "LAX AIRPORT signage leaves something to be desired. Nothing to do with airline."
Pros: "The food was great. The flight attendants were very courteous and took excellent care of all passengers"
Cons: "Long flight lol j/k can't help that. It was a great flight, no complaints"
Pros: "2 bags each 23 kilogram each total 46"
Cons: "Coffee. I don't know what it was but the worst coffee I have ever had and I tried it 3 times"
Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."
Pros: "Talk about an awesome experience. I loved the friendly staff and the accommodations were superb. I could ask for no better. Even the food was excellent."
Cons: "I have nothing but praise."
Pros: "The crew were very polite and looked smart, I didn’t find them very personable at all though. The entertainment system is fantastic and my meal was ok I guess, I requested the low fat meal, probably should’ve just had the normal one."
Cons: "The seats are not very comfortable, very hard and textured seats that just don’t feel nice at all especially on a long flight. I weight about 11 stone (154 pounds) and even I felt like I was taking up a lot of room in my seat."
Pros: "Francesca was the flight attende t that I had most the most interactions with was very friendly and warm."
Pros: "I loved the movie choice!"
Cons: "The head rest comfortability, could be softer as well as the pillows, they could also be softer."
Pros: "I could sleep in peace the entire flight and the food. The little care packages we receive with a sleeping mask and ear plugs are also fun and useful."
Pros: "The flight crew from the mel to lax route were excellent. One was especially attentive to my 2 toddlers and gave me a bit of a break, something that has NEVER happened in over 40 flights traveling with children."
Cons: "I think something was broken in our section (mel to lax) as it was uncomfortably hot and the flight crew tried to get it cooler but could not. I’ve never experienced a flight that was too hot, usually the opposite. It was stifling."
Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff."
Pros: "The crew was the best part of my experience, super nice and accomodating"
Cons: "the wifi had subpar performance"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Flight was quite comfortable. Nice attention to service"
Cons: "I would have appreciated another round of hot drinks."
Pros: "Crew was professional."
Cons: "Couldn't stretch my right (window side) leg. Display quality was poor."
Pros: "Good entertainment, food and in-flight crew"
Cons: "Because this flight was delayed it was a miracle (involving running til my throat literally bled) that I made my connection. Ground crew could not have been less helpful - even to my friend who they knew was trying to get home to attend a family funeral."
Pros: "We paid extra for more legroom and it was totally worth it."
Cons: "The regular seats were so lacking in leg room that I could not cross my legs, reach the floor to get my glasses when I dropped them, or even get my carry-on out. There is no way to get into the "brace for impact position" with arms over your head and head in your lap! This is really unsafe, not to mention really uncomfortable. The flight was long, so comfort would be nice! Our first flight was regular seats and I was pretty miserable and I am a slender woman 5'6". The extra 3" was great, and we had to pay more on the return trip. The FAA should be investigating seat size and safety on planes."
Cons: "Food was awful. Sorry. Breakfast was unrecognizable. Landed hungry."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "My economy window seat was just too cramped for a big guy on a nine hour flight"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The floor at our feet had been spilled on during a previous flight and not cleaned. Bag was lost and not returned for 5 days. Crew during flight was flippant and disinterested in service...unless you were Economy+."
Pros: "Aisle/window seating!"
Cons: "My entertainment unit did not work. I was graciously offered an iPad, but declined, however, the picture quality at my son's seat was also iffy. Both my long-haul flights had poor signage for toilets."
Pros: "The planes are really cool and seats were very comfortable. The part about phone/tablet holder in front of passenger is awesome. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Vegetarian food selection could be better, need more content in movie selection"
Pros: "Australian airports are wonderful."
Pros: "Purchased an extra 3" of leg room, which helped tremendously being that my husband & I are both tall. Flight attendants were friendly, helpful & attentative. There were plenty of beverages offered. The food service was adequate. So many options on the media screens on the back of the seats. USB ports were provided on the back of every seat as well."
Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."
Cons: "Entertainment system was good, and I felt that you appeared to have more leg room in economy than other airlines."
Cons: "For an international flight, the plane was too small, cramped and uncomfortable. Food had to be purchased. No entertainment what so ever. Previous I took a VA flight to Perth from Melbourne. Same distance, bigger plane, entertainment on seat backs and a meal. This flight soured me."
Pros: "The crew was great with updates. Checking in was a bit confusing though as not all the crew knew what was up. It was a very crowded day so it was bound to be a bit rough. Of my last four flights to London Virgin Atlantic was the best!"
Cons: "Heathrow was a bit confusing and it took a moment to get my bearings. The crew was a bit disorganized but that seemed to get solved quickly."
Pros: "This was my 3rd time to fly to Brisbane, Australia. Love flying with Virgin Australia. They have great service and friendly staff."
Cons: "I brought my own padded seat, but it is a long flight, so it's best to get up and walk around as much as you can."
Pros: "Was a comfy flight thanks to not having anyone sitting next to me. If someone wouldve been next to me it wouldnt have been as nice because the seats are too bunched for international travel."
Cons: "My seat wouldnt recline properly. There were limited food options for non pork eaters. No outlets for power. How can you operate an international flight with nothing provided for those who need to charge their devices after some time. Not a smart design move."
Pros: "Superior comfort, class, and style. The crew was friendly and accommodating, the pilots kept you up to date with flight info and departure/arrival time (and kept the seat belt light off almost the entire trip), the food was delicious and offered throughout, and the entertainment was top notch. Seats were comfortable (we had bulkhead row Space+ and they were worth every cent for the international long haul from LAX-BNE and SYD-LAX) and everyone got a pillow/blanket. We got premium noise-canceling headsets, water, and a little care kit including an eye mask and earplugs and a pen to fill out your travel documents. The overhead bin space was huge and we got two free checked bags of luggage up to 50lbs each (I don't know of that's standard or not, or if it came with Space+ seats). SERIOUSLY the best airline."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing. For a long haul flight, Virgin Australia is TOP NOTCH!"
Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "Food was not good, they served snacks and did not serve drinks with snacks. Seats were tight"
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment. Crew was very accommodating. Food and drink service was great."
Cons: "Boarding process was slightly hectic."
Pros: "Very happy with everything"
Cons: "Air conditioning"
Pros: "I liked entertainment options on your phone but at the same time there was nowhere to plug your phone if it ran out of battery."
Cons: "The boarding was good but we did not depart o time which did not cause us to be on time to our destination. It was international flight for almost 4 hours and there was no foodie snacks serve. Only tea or coffee. For a international flight more than 2 hours you should offer something else, soda juices and a snack at the very least. I guess the reason why I am feeling this ways is because I flew with virgin a couple years back to London and was so impressed by he service and the airline and the great quality modern vibe. It was the W hotels of the airlines industry and this time I really want impressed."
Pros: "It arrived on time"
Cons: "The most miserable 10 hours of my year, so far. Sat in economy. Small seats. Uncomfortable seats. Design of headrest made comfort an impossibility."
Pros: "There were lots of choices of movies. The flight was only half full, so I got two seats together to stretch out."
Cons: "The cups for water and juice were very small."
Pros: "Plane was new or newly appointed interior. Bin space very adequate. Lavatory larger than usual. Crew was friendly. Dinner choices good and quality better than norm in American carriers."
Cons: "Snack and breakfast were odd, centered somewhat on dairy products (annoying if lactose intolerant)."
Pros: "Great service, tons of food"
Cons: "This VS007 flight is in an old Airbus that needs a major overhaul, especially compared to newer planes in their fleet. The screens are hardly visible, the movie selection more limited, the seats old, and no electrical outlets for a 11hr flight is just not acceptable these days!"
Pros: "Top notch for a long economy class flight. Great new plane!"
Pros: "The crew was very good with the passengers and attentive"
Cons: "The leg space is very tight, it was very hard to sit specially for longer flights it's not that comfortable"
Pros: "Service. Addrional snacks serbef ice cream lollipop"
Cons: "Seat was hard need padding"
Cons: "member of cabin crew chewed gum. no food selections left by time cart reached my seat."
Pros: "Extremely uncomfortable seats in the Economy section and a very confusing remote control to maneuver the entertainment screen. The crew was excellent so it's not their fault. The food was passable but those white bread rolls got to go. My luggage didn't arrive so let's hope they bring it today."
Pros: "Service was great, very polite crew. The food was so far the best comparing with other airlines I flew with. Planes were clean."
Cons: "The flight arrived with delay in Istanbul. The connecting flight was delayed as well. Hopefully I won’t experience that on the way back. One of the passengers said that flights are always delayed when arriving to Istanbul waiting for gates."
Pros: "Easy booking on Kayak! Good service overall."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, it was really hot! Not enough air conditioners."
Pros: "I got upgraded to business class, only the fourth time in 60 years flying!"
Cons: "Seats are too cramped and not enough leg room. Plus our seats did not recline which is painful on a 10 hour flight. The flight attendants and front desk workers had an attitude as well."
Pros: "Crew were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Seats were especially cramped and tight and leg room was uncomfortable and I am a short person."
Pros: "Everything- hot moist wash rags & overnight kit were luxury touches."
Pros: "Great service, polite."
Cons: "A bit slow serving food."
Pros: "Entertainment, flight times, price, new plane, good luxury, in between meals food offering"
Cons: "Cleanliness of bathrooms, seat room, bumby landing, no involvement from the pilot to the passenger it was like he was too good to speak to passengers and update on weather conditions, welcome greetings, landing details etc. overfilled flights."
Pros: "the crew were great clean cabin"
Cons: "no entertainment systems lowered the food standard comparing to previous time I flew with them long boarding times"
Pros: "El servicio del personal a bordo fue muy bueno. La comida me pareció de buen sabor. El boarding se puede hacer desde el lounge."
Cons: "El chreck in en el aeropuerto de IAD no me gustó. Abre a las 7:10 para el vuelo de las 11."
Pros: "Service was exceelent and all crew staff were professional and friendly and courteous."
Cons: "We end up spending almost 1,200 use extra to reach Washington and return to Yaounde."
Pros: "The entertainment and food choices are great, and staff is kind and ready to help."
Cons: "The line to check in & get our boarding passes was ridiculously long -- it took us about an hour of just waiting in line before even getting to security."
Cons: "Missed the flight bc they changed the gate for the flight without making any announcements. Told me I could pay a penalty fee in excess of $450 to be out on another flight even though same flights to Amsterdam where currently $213 online. When I told them about the price of the tickets online, the response of the customer service agent was "yeah, sometimes the penalties are high". He didn't do anything to try to help. The entire Turkish airlines team at IST is the biggest joke for a customer service team I have ever encountered in any line of business. I have never met a group of "professionals" that are so unprofessional, rude, void of empathy, and overall customer service knowledge than the turkish airlines team at IST. I will never conduct business with Turkish Airlines again and will ensure all my friends, family, and colleagues try their best to avoid them too."
Cons: "the employees at the check in booth were so rude and unhelpful. I needed a wheelchair because I had a very bad backache, but they refused to help me and they made me wait standing up in line for over 2 hours. It was a very painful experience."
Pros: "Missed my flight because the airport changed gates and didn't announce it. Was told I could pay a penalty o in excess of $450 to be placed on another flight, meanwhile same flights from Istanbul to Amsterdam were going for $213. I will avoid Turkish Airlines at all costs. Customer service is terrible. The most unprofessional, rude, ignorant, and disrespectful staff represent Turkish Airlines at IST. Furthermore, an email complaint has been ignored."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines remains my favorite - boarding process is organized, seats are comfortable, food is good, and crew is friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I booked my flight with Turkish Airlines for June 28th at 11:05 pm. A few hours before my flight, there were bombings in the airport in Istanbul, which was where I was flying into. I tried for hours to contact Turkish Airlines and their phone was disconnected. I could not reach anyone to try to re-schedule a new flight or to ask if the flight was going to be re-directed. I received no information and ended up having to book a new flight for the next day. After my flight had already left Turkish Airlines posted on their website an alert. I am shocked that it took so long to post any information and I am very upset that I was unable to reach customer service. I will NOT be choosing this airline to fly on again."
Pros: "Spacious, nice, friendly, I didn't eat the food because I have dietary restrictions but it looked good."
Cons: "Absulotely nothing."
Cons: "Lousy boarding, we were standing on the bus for a long time, in front of the not ready airplane. Entertainment was bad, the sound plugs didn't work properly, the movies kept breaking off. Not a standard we were expecting at all :("
Cons: "Rude stewardess"
Pros: "This was my first time flying with Turkish Airlines, and I had a great experience. I travel internationally a lot and it has been by far the best airline I have been on. I love flights that give you a hot towel when you arrive, so that was a big plus in my book. The flight stewards were so helpful both on and off the flight. The food was delicious. Movie selections were freat ad well."
Pros: "The planes were clean and staff really helpful. The actual flights were great."
Cons: "At Istanbul the staff in the airport were confused about where the gate was and we missed our flight and then we had to purchase new tickets. And they did not honor our original tickets. That was almost 900 dollars gone because they would not honor our tickets. I am hoping for a refund."
Cons: "Bathroom very dirty with odors!"
Pros: "Liked the hot towel, good service and gift bag of toiletries - unique among airlines for Economy passengers."
Pros: "Food was good. Service was excellent."
Pros: "Excellent flight experience"
Cons: "Delayed arrival meant my luggage didn't make connecting flight. Bad!"
Cons: "There is a sthg in the food which was plastic.and it could be really dangerous for me.I showed the hostes and said they could change in flight from istanbul to izmir."
Pros: "Food was great as well as entertaiment."
Cons: "I'm 6.2 There is no leg room for tall people. It was very uncomfortble 10 hours red eye flight. Crew was just ok."
Pros: "The food was good, as was the service."
Cons: "Delays, both at Dulles, as well as in Istanbul."
Pros: "Other than what I've mentioned below, everything was great."

Pros: "Care and attention the flight attendance showed."
Pros: "The crew and food were excellent! Movie choices were plentiful!"
Cons: "Travelling with my 70yr old mother.. Man sitting in front of her would recline and his head was practically in her lap. Neither of our seats reclined so it was upward bound only for almost 11hrs."
Pros: "Comfortable. Excellent service"
Pros: "Had a one hour delay without justification,but ended up landing in Douala first before Yaounde. Arrived at 4:30 am instead of 12:005am. Lost my bag up till now not seen."
Cons: "The crew, was rude to passengers with kids"
Pros: "The attendants were courteous and proficient. Even when they were being elbowed as they walked past, smiling and friendly. I will try to fly Turkish again."
Cons: "In contrast to my former experiences at different airports in Zurich, Boston and Istanbul, the check-in staff at Tabriz airport were really rude and non-cooperative. I had hard time checking in and my belongings inside my back pack was rejected due to less than 1 kilo excess weight. The behavior was unacceptable. I might reconsider taking Turkish flights from smaller airports in future, or taking it at all."
Pros: "Top of the line service!!"
Cons: "Seating was terrible. My seat was broken."

Pros: "Everything was very good"
Pros: "Amazing airline. My interncontinental flight had USB charger, tvs and just a great flight (wine, food, service)."
Cons: "My second flight had no inflight entertainment. Overall, I will fly them again: top airline by far."
Pros: "Food was pretty good and the inflight movie selection was robust."
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to weather but the cancelation wasn't communicated until I actually arrived at the airport. This isn't customary. Most airlines inform travelers ahead of time. Rescheduling the flight took two days and multiple calls to their customer service number which wasn't receiving calls for a full 24hrs due to call volume. Was finally placed on a new flight but the flight had a 24hr layover in Istanbul (my previous flight didn't), forcing me to pay out of pocket for food and lodging in Turkey."
Cons: "We had long line in boarding"
Pros: "The onboard entertainment was good when compared to other airlines and the cabin was up to date in terms of style and cleanliness"
Cons: "The cabin crew could have been more friendly; the flight was delayed and the airline knew before we left Washington that I would not make the connecting flight. No one was there at Istanbul from the airline to guide us through the next steps as is normal for an international flight when passengers have missed their connecting flight!"
Cons: "14 hour delay and kayak kept insisting there was no delay on the flight so I went to the airport only to have to turn around and come back the next day."
Cons: "Better allergy aware food."
Pros: "Great seat easy flight. The food always seem to be the same. I wish they would change it up every once in a while. I've been on this flight 14 times this year and its always exactly the same.."
Cons: "The gate was under construction in Seattle, and it was impossible to hear the gate agents."
Cons: "Stop charging for checked bags"
Pros: "Food, crew and flight were good."
Cons: "I booked a flight in klm, and didn't read the fine print, that it was operated by Delta. On KLM one bag is included, but on delta, I had to pay $60. This wad not made clear to me when I booked."
Pros: "Economy Comfort, excellent in-flight entertainment (Movies)"
Cons: "Food was rather marginal (really no surprise, it's airplane food), tried unsuccessfully to hook-up to in-flight Wifi (couldn't get it to work throughout the flight)"
Pros: "Everything went great. Flight left a little late but was fine and only arrived a little late. I like the side wings on head rests really help."
Cons: "Seats are always hard on long flights."
Pros: "When I arrived at Detroit I noticed there was an earlier flight going out to Amsterdam. The nice Delta rep gave me a new boarding pass for the earlier flight because there were empty seats on that plane."
Pros: "The crew members were so kind and friendly. I actually did feel more at ease and made my journey more enjoyable. Specifically, was were traveling with guitars and they gave us no hesitation to board early in order to Stowe our instruments safely. They were very pleasant during serving and with requests. The offerings of movies and TV were excellent and extensive."
Cons: "The meal really wasnt very good. But the snacks and beverages we're quite good. Not sure if it is related but the check in/luggage drop process was quite slow."
Pros: "The service was excellent."
Pros: "Some of the cabin attendants were friendly and helpful. Others not so much."
Cons: "Even in "world business class" the pods are very small and cramped and there is no room to put a carry on bag even something as small as a headphone box. Also the business class bathroom was very small, very disgustingly dirty when we boarded (someone tried to clean it a bit) and dirty and small throughout the flight. The bathroom does not have ventilation and the toilet basically does not have any liquid for flushing!"
Pros: "Flight turned out great... but I got lucky!!! Got a seat I wanted... now praying the same occurs on return trip"
Cons: "Not being able to assign my seat until I got to the gate!! Terrifying not to be able to choose seat fir such a long flight!!! Do not ever want to be in this situation again!!!"
Pros: "Loved the swift checking in at Seatac, being picked out of the Special check-in line, tended to by a Ndeye, smooth all the way through to the gate. Also liked that the plane's arrival at Schiphol was only 30 minutes later than initial ETA after long delay at Seatac. Also liked the many snacks."
Cons: "Prolonged delay of flight departure. Choices of entertainment, especially movies."
Pros: "I paid 60 bucks for an emergency row exit, take get some extra leg room and space so that I would be fresh when I arrived in Munich. However KLM allowed a passenger — who did not pay for the emergency row to sit next to me because he needed the extra space because he was a liarge man, and clearly didn’t fit very well in the economy seats. Thus I I lost all the extra space and actually would of preferred a regular economy seat. that would’ve been more preferential then paying $60 and getting less space than I would’ve had it in a regular economy. I understand the other passengers comfort was important and if that was the case he should’ve paid $60 as well."
Cons: "I did not get a choice of seat for the one and a half hour flight from Amsterdam to Munich and I sat in a middle row for the first time in 20 years."
Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Good service excellent"
Pros: "Staff was friendly."
Cons: "During boarding, the sign wasn’t updated after Zone 1. I was watching the board from a distance while on the phone, waiting for Zone 4 to come up. Fortunately, I heard them say “final boarding” over the intercom; otherwise I could have missed my flight."
Pros: "Good food, excellent service"
Cons: "Seats did not have enough storage."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early. Dinner quality was good Crew was very professional"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "Everything fuckin sucks"
Pros: "Complimentary upgrade"
Pros: "Good in general."
Pros: "It got me there in one piece. USB ports, entertainment system a good distraction."
Cons: "Terrible food, aisles too tight, seats not very comfortable. 777’s are very noisy. Visas on arrival a ridiculous disaster- 100’s of people standing in lines for over an hour while 3 people slowly stamp your passport. Know that is not the airline’s fault!"
Pros: "on time, good food, good films enough space to sleep in economy."
Cons: "the stewardess only went up one side of the plane offering eye shades and when i asked for one she seemed really miffed."
Pros: "Attentiveness, service, and smiles!"
Pros: "They must deliver my missing bag on top most priority."
Cons: "All four checked baggages received up to Mumbai. I handed over to domestic jet airways all four bags as per the system at Mumbai. But at the end I received only three baggages at Ahmedabad. I informed jet airways about one missing bag. They have acknowledged it and the missing bag was to arrive at Ahmedabad in the next flight. I am still waiting for the missing bag."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "The row I chose for a seat was next to the bathrooms. Those seats don’t recline. Found it it’s very hard to sleep sitting upright. That made the flight and the first day of my international trip difficult. It would be nice for the sites seat selection feature to include such nfo on seats. I paid nearly $2000 for a shitty seat."
Cons: "The crew appeared tired, scattered, and unhappy. The flight was delayed after boarding nearly 1hr while repairs were completed. 1st announcement by captains crew stated passengers could disembark during repair, then stated 10min later to take a seat. Very poor communication."
Pros: "Pleased we upgraded to comfort plus."
Cons: "It was an older 747 which didn’t have power to the Sears. The video system was also old with poor quality."

Cons: "The food and snack choices are quite limited."
Cons: "Hard to get comfortable even in easy comfort but easy comfort is better than typica arats."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Felt like a sardine . Just like ALL fights these days."
Cons: "The food service was way to rushed , no time to relax with a cocktail before dinner was being served. The warm mixed nuts were stale tasting. The soup was excellent. The breakfast was not edible . Not your usual standard, Delta. Makes me sad as my late husband was a million miler plus and we have always been loyal to you, Seems like you have too many passengers in business class to provide food and service you can be proud of"
Cons: "The service was terrible. Also a ripped off base on I was expecting to be treated as if I was on Virgin nothing compares to it . Delta plane making a loud noise we can even heard anything when pilot does announcement. I want my money back or I should be reinbuise some how."

Cons: "Jet airways sucks"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"

Pros: "Entertainment offered, USB charging options."
Cons: "Too much food offered."
Pros: "Very attentative."
Pros: "The food, comfort and service of Delta One class have continued to excel. Since this was a scheduled late departure and they still offered the full menu, I chose to have only the appetizer portion. This turned out to be a fine soup, salmon salad and multiple extras. This was perfect for an 11:00 PM dinner."
Cons: "It enough leg room and I am not tall. I'm 5'5""
Pros: "Within Europe KLM short flights are very good. They give you a snack and something to drink without charge."

Pros: "Great helpful happy staff, made you feel welcome. Good atmosphere and peaceful. Food excellent."
Cons: "On transatlantic flight , seats comfortable but inadequate recline for a night flight and no footrest."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Free wine. Lots of great entertainment choices."
Cons: "I do not like that when you book through Kayak you cannot choose seats on Delta. Is there anyway to do this?"
Cons: "The process of checking was very poor. One line was serving all of the Delta flights. Agents were very slow. Even when they started to serve my flight with priority still no impruvment. The agent who served me was so lost that he could not find the page with my picture and name in my passport!!!"
Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "Horrible food and Very very uncomfortable seats. Absolutely NO leg room. One of these days Delta is going to be sued for deep vein thrombosis (blood clot)."
Cons: "Crew forget to feed quarter of passenger, and did it after reminder from passenger. No movies with Russian translation or titles. Flight arrived at Amsterdam 50 min later, and we missed our direct flight to Kiev"

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."

Pros: "Good Experience"

Pros: "Flight was quick, professional, friendly."
Pros: "They flew full speed to catch up with the delays."
Cons: "Departure was scheduled with one hour delay. When everyone was boarded they mentioned a leaking toilet. It took them 1,5 hours to disable the toilet. In the mean time, no drinks, no snacks, nothing. So we should depart at 18:00 but it became 19:30. Our first drinks and meal was no earlier then 21:00. The crew should have anticipated better that the technical problem would at least take one hour and give everyone a drink at least."
Cons: "Our flight from Nairobi to Lusaka was cancelled for some reason and we did not find out until we happened to log into the website to double check our itinerary. They automatically rescheduled the flight only giving us 25 minutes to reach our next flight...impossible. so, after calling, we were re-booked again and forced into a 13 hour layover in Amsterdam. Our original flight plan had 4 hours. so, because we are a family of 7 with a baby, we had to buy a hotel room to rest, costing us a lot of extra money we had not planned to spend. We contacted KLM for help with the cost but were rejected. We also lost 5 bags somewhere between Chicago and Lusaka, but after 2 days, we received them."
Pros: "Captain was updating us with the delay status."
Cons: "You have to be gold to get the priority boarding. In other countries I can do it with my silver status."
Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and because of this I missed my connection flight to Amsterdam"
Cons: "Taking off late caused me stress because I had transferring flight within less than two hours in transit originally. So we arrived later about 50 minutes so I had to manage my situation and find my next gate and be on time. And an other thing that I disliked was that I was allowed to have only one baggage which was very unusual for international flight between two countenances. And the crew was not polite enough so she made fun of my Cary-on. In short, I expected more from KLM which is famous for them being "Royal" but not acting as one of them."
Cons: "One and a half hour delay on a 50 minute flight. Flight was operated by Cityjet on behalf of KLM. Never have I seen such bad customer service: from rude people at the bagage drop off to incompetent hostesses at the boarding gate."
Cons: "Boarding was just a mess - lines and delay Crew is apathetic There is no amenity kit for passengers Food could be better"
Pros: "The crew was very nice i felt safe during the flight the sit had enough space the pilot kept apologzing for 15 minute lale took responsible for somthing he wasnt need to"
Pros: "It was a KLM flight so good"
Cons: "Could not select seats in advance even as a Platinum level Air France / Skyteam card holder as it was purchases as China Southern."
Pros: "Crew polite and efficient"
Cons: "No leg room. The box underneath the seat in front makes it impossible to stretch your legs. The arm rest lifts only to 45 degrees which is useless. No way to gain some lateral space there."
Pros: "on time arrival"
Cons: "the cabin configuration is bad"
Pros: "2-4-2 configuration was ideal, because we had a pair of seats on the side"
Cons: "HIndu vegetarian meal was FISH!! Hindus DO NOT eat fish!!"
Pros: "Cabin crew and staff were very professional, courteous."
Cons: "50 Euro charge for one checked bag, and they placed me on a locked standby list (at initial check-in the were unable to assign me a seat despite staff efforts) for the second leg of my return journey after I had paid extra for checked baggage and reserved my flight well in advance. My impression is that they may be deliberately overbooking flights. I was given a seat assignment at the gate, however I didn't like the uncertainty of not knowing wether or not I would be boarding until the last minute."
Pros: "entertainment options"
Cons: "lack of USB or other power outlet to charge my own devices, poor responsiveness from crew"
Pros: "The interface of shows and movies,"
Cons: "They dont have subtitules in spanish"
Cons: "One of few airlines with seats right next to kitchen Super old plane! No Usb charging possible (or we all couldn't find) I asked for aisle seat as always. They said we give you a window seat but we have blocked the 2 seats next to you so you have 3 seats. I thanked and asked for that aisle seat and they said no again. Then obviously both seats were fully booked and I jammed in the corner. Ridiculous."
