Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Flight is spacious"
Cons: "Crew members service is very slow and not courteous, Also, boarding has to be more planned and informed.."
Pros: "The 1-hour complimentary wifi."
Cons: "Hope they had the immigration/arrival card on the airplane."
Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Pros: "Absolutely professional!"
Cons: "Nothing all perfect"
Pros: "Because I was in the bulkhead seat - it was good."
Cons: "My first flight arrived 30 min late which meant that my 50-minute layover was tight. But instead of holding the next plane for us, they forced us to re-book on a flight leaving 14 hours later! I was not ok with this so I pushed the issue and they put me on the flight leaving 6hrs later. :-((((("
Cons: "Refund my ticket"
Pros: "Liked the smoothness on boarding and the organization. Keep it up!"
Cons: "Attitude of some of the flight attendants and more entertainment."
Pros: "The crew, the seat and catering"
Pros: "The airline was helpful even though the flight was delayed"
Pros: "Amazing airlines. Lots of food and snacks. Because of a long layover they even got us a hotel room for free!"
Cons: "Very strict luggage rules, even flying international we were only allowed a handbag on board, not our carryon"
Pros: "Museum of Islamic Art,"
Pros: "I liked their customer service, food, and the flight attendants were friendly. They have a very nice shopping mall at Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar."
Cons: "They have less space to move your feet and after a while your left knee begins to hurt because you have been sitting in the plane for a long time. Whenever I asked to get a drink of water or soft drinks, it took the flight attendant 10-15 minutes to arrive with my drink. I understand she was occupied with other duties, but she should have made me her priority."
Cons: "The TSA agents broke my phone and tried to hide it in a secured package with another of my electronics. I questioned why 1/3 phones were in secured and the others were not. I was told to not open the bag until I reached my destination. Lucky I opened it after I cleared security to find that the face of the phone had been shattered with glass shards sticking out, I bought this to the crews' attention and was told to send an email to a random email for the airlines and that the incident would be investigated later. So basically I was given the brush off. Worst experience I have had while flying."
Pros: "I flew from Bali to Doha and then Doha to Dulles after an 8 hour layover. Both flights operated a Boeing 777. The planes were spotlessly clean both flights. The menu choices were amazing and the wine selections were very good. What made the difference was the attentiveness of the cabin crew. I would particularly like to commend the purser and the flight attendants on flight 707 DOH-IAD for their assistance and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty"
Cons: "Flight 707 was supposed to have the new Qsuites in Business Class, so it was disappointing that without prior notice the airline switched to an aircraft with normal (but quite good) business class seating. Nevertheless, the purser and the flight attendants made the flight memorable in a very positive way."

One flight attendant trying to serve both meal and drink to each person took a lot of time. Snacks offerings were almost non-existent.

I showed up early and was told that I had to take by suitcase to another location if I wanted to check in 3 hours early. After lugging the suitcase a quarter of a mile, I was told that they don't do that and I had to return to the designated gate at the appropriate time."
Pros: "787 is an excellent plane and I could sleep a little"

Cons: "Crew was not very nice unfortunately."
Pros: "Great kosher food!"
Cons: "Leg room"
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.

What about handicap travel? Swiss????"
Pros: "Only the crew was good"
Cons: "Ridiculous entertainment system - was impossible to watch a movie."
Pros: "Flight attendants were sympathetic"
Cons: "The first flight was cancelled after we sat on the plane for over an hour. We all had to wait in line at the transfer desk. Then our second flight attempt- boarding was awful, total chaos.

Pros: "Bad inedible food and no leg room, and I am small."

Cons: "Late departure"
Cons: "We sat for an hour on the tarmac with the plane at about 80-85 degrees and everyone sweating. Once we took off the flight attendants kept turning the cabin lights on and off and serving dinner (on an overnight flight is that really necessary?!) and waking us up. Also plane was old and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Great crew and plane arrived on time."
Cons: "No entertainment and no place to charge devices."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, the flight was on time."

Pros: "Very nice stewardess on this plane. Seating was excellent."
Cons: "Crew was not apologetic after we missed connecting flight due to technical difficulties with their plane. I was re-routed to Barcelona and then a very budgetary Airlines to Athens which was ridiculously tight again with seating and flight was almost an hour late. Luggage didn't come until following day. And to top it off, I thought I would be flying with KLM on both legs!"
Cons: "The seat was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Smooth flight, on-tome departure"
Cons: "Service in business class left a little more to be desired. I had to ask for food and drinks, because I feel off to sleep in the first round. Came to Gate early, but had to wait for agent to put the jet bridge. Only one person was available."
Cons: "Hassel about getting a visa to Cambodia. Refused to give me a boarding pass for 2nd and 3 rf leg of trip. Korean Air had no problems giving me yhe passes. Otter people had Delta boarding passes shivh they traded for Korran Aiir passes but the got better seats. Food was very good"

Pros: "Great service all around. As comfortable as you can get for a domestic flight."

Pros: "Flights were on time boarding was easy. 2nd crew from ATLANTA was friendly."

Cons: "There was a change in our flight. According to Delta you didn't confirm every leg of our flight and the plane was over booked."
Pros: "There was a threat in the airport which caused the closure of one terminal. It happened to be the one from which this flight was due to depart. The crew was calm and able to get everyone on board with a minimum delay, considering the circumstances. The flight crew made up some time in the air and we were able to land less than 30 minutes after our original ETA. Well done, Delta."
Pros: "Smooth and easy."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Cons: "The staff"
Pros: "So many movies to watch. Keep it up!"
Cons: "The food was too sweet and salty."
Pros: "I had to take a United flight last week for a short flight and once again I was reminded why I ALWAYS fly Delta if at all possible. United crew hid in the galley the whole trip wit lititle to no interaction with passengers. My flight today on Delta was great; food really excellent (Chicken Tika) and the crew was great as usual. Delta remains the best."
Pros: "The courtesy of the staff and the seats in the "delta comfort" section."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. i'm not sure if there is a way but there should be a way to only serve only those who are requesting service."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Friendly service."
Pros: "The leg room and freedom of not having another seat in front of me throughout this flight was great. It made getting comfortable a lot easier."
Cons: "We couldn't hear the overhead announcements at all. Seated right next to the turbine intake on the wing made the amount of ambient noise especially high, so all the in-flight announcements were pretty much unintelligible."
Pros: "Good seat, easy on and off, everything went a little ahead of schedule and smooth"
Pros: "I was able to pick my own flight online easily."
Cons: "Lack of same day, 1 connection, first class seats. Had to fly out the next day because only middle seats left. Frustrating because I paid for first class and had no good choices for my departure day of choice."

Pros: "Staff were courteous. Captain explained reason for delay."
Cons: "Over 20 minute delay to begin boarding with no explanation. Boarding process very slow due to excess carry ones needing to be checked."
Pros: "Movies- pro staff"
Pros: "Friendliness of omboard crew"
Cons: "Flight was more than 2 hours late"
Pros: "Upgrading to First Class made it worthwhile."
Cons: "As a minority provider of service at BWI, the gate was the furthest from the entry. Gate security is almost always a source of delay here."
Pros: "The fact that the flight was direct. Entertainment options. Availability of USB and power outlets once you upgraded to priority seating."
Cons: "Flight was delayed as a result of volunteers getting off the plane due to overbooking. Their luggage had to be found and unloaded. Abusive and rude ground and security staff. On board staff was curt and was just going through the motions. Priority Seating seats were flimsy and extremely uncomfortable for a 10hr flight, even using the front seat pocket felt like you being kicked in the back. Seats reclined only 3 inches. Quality of food was pathetic. Serving trays were so small that is was impractical to eat out of them as food served barely fit in them. Toilets and sinks were clogged and dirty 1.5hrs into the flight. In short, it felt like you were traveling on a cheap bus."
Pros: "Only the crew was nice!"
Cons: "The plane I was in was making lots of noise. Old plane."
Pros: "After the extremely long wait to check bags which made us miss the flight, the date crew got us in another flight...it wasn't direct which is what I paid for, but they did get us out, but i missed an interview because of the lack of crew and a missing luggage."
Cons: "Checking a bag, delta did not have enough crew to get everyone thru to their flights. We waited for 80 minutes inline to check a bag. Then we ran to the gate inky to find the gate was closed less than 2 minutes before we arrived. At least 20 others also missed the plane because of the lack of crew and long lines checking bags. It was frustrating, irritating, uncaring crew checking in, and a bit rude. Then on of my checked luggage was lost enroute - which made getting off the flights even later which made me miss a meeting that I was scheduled to be at. All because you didn't have the crew needed to check in."
Pros: "...the fact that they got us on the plane and back to GRR even though the connecting flight from BWI was delayed and there was little time to make that last flight out of DTW..."
Pros: "I haven't traveled by air for a number of years, it had gotten to be so crazy at checkin. Well imagine my surprise when I was checked in within five minutes of arriving at the airport. KAYAK took care of everything. All the flights were on time, I received email updates along the way and I am so happy I'm planning my next trip already."
Cons: "Even the babies in the waiting area were quiet on the flight, which leaves nothing for me to complain about at all."
Pros: "The seat 16A is very comfortable and spacious. Most of the hosts were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "My screen did not function well and sound was very poor. I had to have my computer 'rebooted' two times. The second time was done by a gentleman who was a bit sarcastic when I asked if he could help me, as I had waited 20+ minutes for the help to get it going again. You need to update your system!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and always there to help. They managed a 15min boarding due to being well organized."
Cons: "I’m 5’7 and my knees were touching the seat in front of me- there is no way to be comfortable. You pay an extravagant amount of money and get squished in there like sardines. It’s disappointing."
Pros: "The crew was really good. The food was much better than my cross the Atlantic flight. There wasn’t any entertainment so I am not sure how to rate it."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is not very good. Why does a passenger who has cleared security in the US have to do it again in Frankfurt? It is an unnecessary requirement that causes some passengers to miss their connecting flight. I will give them a pass on clearing immigration But going thru security....no."
Pros: "Treated passengers well - even those of us in steerage. Food was excellent and entertainment options plentiful. Coach is still coach, and it’s hard to settle in for a nap. So, if arriving rested is important to you, spring for business class."
Pros: "Underseat AC power and USB power was the highlight of the trip."
Cons: "Food portions were tiny. Totally dehydrated at the end of the flight, and water was passed out in 100 mL servings. Insufficient space under the seat for a backpack."
Cons: "Missed this flight because my first flight was a cancelled flight, missed intercontinental connecting flight."
Cons: "Was told that an upgrade to premium economy entitled us to lounge privileges. Were told by attendants that we had to pay an extra $35. each. We had $6.30 subs from potbelly."
Pros: "I wasn't expecting free in-flight movies and meals, which were very welcome"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "1 hour delay again"
Cons: "Seat pocket was damaged and couldn’t be used. Food was at best mediocre. Old salad, old bread, no salt with warm meal."
Pros: "Probably one of the best economy experiences I have had in a long time. The staff was very friendly and professional. Also one of the first times that i was actually comfortable in an econo seat. Hats off to Lufthansa!"
Cons: "Seats very crowded. No leg room at all."
Cons: "After usual perfect service from Luftahansa, I noticed that my lagguage was opened and destroyed."
Cons: "Had to run thru airport to catch plane, thn long wait to board."
Pros: "Timely, friendly, clean plane"
Cons: "Food was bland!!!"
Cons: "Air was stuffy."
Pros: "They even filled my water bottle a couple of times in addition to numerous glasses at my seat."

Pros: "A couple of flight atrendants were civil"
Cons: "Gate was changed three times immediately prior to departure. Plane was BERY small. Food was awful."
Pros: "Impecable service. Even worth flying through FRA."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything, as always, great. Keep it up."
Cons: "This particular flight was delayed beyond reaching the next sep,so we have to rebook our flight threw Chicago in uncomfortable hurry."
Pros: "Boarding was made seamless. Seating legroom always seems to be better then others I have flown with. Food seems to be better too. The flight crew is very friendly!"
Pros: "new clean aircraft."
Cons: "no breakfast."
Pros: "NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "A male flight attendance made me feel uncomfortable. I sat in empty sit with number 3 instead of 4 and he asked me to check my number on my boarding pass. WIth an extremely directive and dictating tone in his voice he told me YOU SHOULD GO AND SIT to what your ticket says. It is VERY important to be sited, although the seats are available you should be sited where your boarding pass directs you to be."
Cons: "I realized that some people of their crew are extremely insane! I have never had an issue like this, with DELTA or AIR FRANCE, or KLM, or NORWEGIAN, or SAS If it was only one persona that I had to deal with, which it was on my flight from NY to Munich I would say , it was coincidence . One person is not a statistical point and accuse the whole Company. But this was repeated on my second flight from Munich to Athens. Then I said, this is not coincidence, it is a pattern that is repeated and not professional . NEVER AGAIN WITH LUFTHANSA is my decision and my recommendation."
Pros: "This was actually a United Airlines flight connecting to a Lufthansa flight in Munich. The crew was friendly and thanked us individually for flying with them as we prepared for landing."
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Boarding was like a "free-for-all", the gate agents exerted NO control at all. The departure was delayed about 15 minutes (no big thing" but then we sat in our seats for an additional 45-50 minutes for a total of more than an hour!. This after an 11+ hour first leg."
Pros: "Everything was amazing Very pleased!"
Cons: "Good choice entertainment but system is slow to respond and crashed on a few occasions"
Pros: "Flight was ok. It was short but loud. Service was good but seats were tight and no in flight entertainment."
Cons: "It was a transatlantic flight in coach. There is no way to make that a pleasant experience. Entertainment system was down. Ran out of one dinner option."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and attentive. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "My seat back was not easy to keep in the reclining position."
Pros: "great and pleasant service, caring and helpful, frequently offered beverages, delicious vegan option, great movies selection, not much turbulence, overall like Lufthansa the best: reliable, on time,"
Pros: "Best crew ever. By far most friendly staff and excellent service."
Cons: "Nothing that I know"
Cons: "This was a united flight. The personal was not helpful, only in helping me communicate with the airport in Rome to change my flight. I had to pay 97 euros for this change. I am upset and think it is not fair that I need to pay for a problem united had with their flight. I also think star Allience failed as they were not able to resolve the problem with their partner airlines."
Pros: "When we fly Trans Atlantic, we always hope it will be with lufthansa! Sometimes they use united as a carrier and it us never as good as lufthansa!"
Pros: "Efficient, early check in and seat selection was simple and done from home. Got to the airport early which is unusual for me but everything went smoothly and was relatively low stress."
Pros: "Everything else was fine."
Cons: "I had paid for comfort seats ($140) extra. When I checked in at gate I was given another seat assignment (without explanation). It turned out to not be comfort seat, in fact it was the last row in the airplane. Had to get eh gate agent back, which was not fast. She said flight was full and a family had been spread out. I understand, but you can't just bump me from a paid and selected seat to a standard seat, especially on transatlantic flight after paying $140 extra. There was no apology. She went back to gate and little while later came back with a comfort seat. Some people seem not to have shown up as the seat next to me stayed open as well. It was very poorly handled."
Pros: "Late departure, full flight but good overall."
Pros: "Check in was good. Everything was orderly and on time."
Cons: "Fairly cramped for an international flight."
Pros: "flight attendants were very nice, helpful, and accountable. I wish every flight had them on their crew."
Pros: "Great service, food, crew."
Cons: "Seats too small, very uncomfortable."
Pros: "We purchase extra leg room seats which turned out not to be available. The crew understood our frustration and upgraded us to premium economy. Many thanks!"
Pros: "I love the crew, the seats, the food was wonderful and the flight was the smoothest ever. Thanks"
Pros: "Boarding was again easy, directions were clear as to where I should sit. My only trouble with the crew was that announcements were sometimes too quiet to hear at all, which I hardly cared about anyway (seat belts, please). The movie selection was unexpectedly good, as was the music section. Books were meh."
Cons: "I was not comfortable after about four hours, my biggest problem being I had already been riding in an airplane for a total of six hours that day. Food was fine, but came with salt, which was nice. I don't expect a four course meal on an airplane, but I didn't eat with gusto. The headphones provided were lousy, but I just plugged in my own set."
Pros: "I was fortunate to have a complete row (3) seats for myself; the plane was new and in excellent condition. All the staff was courteous and helpful."
Pros: "Flight not too crowded. Check in allowed us to switch seats to maximize space."
Cons: "Food was just so-so."
Pros: "Lufthansa's newest 747-8 airliner was quite the treat for international flight. 100% LED lights with subtle purple-blue mood lighting overnight looks pretty and mimics Virgin's design. Dozens of movies to choose from in addition to many more entertainmrnent options in the widescreen touchscreens. And actual silverware for food, even in economy. The addition of Premier Economy (wider and longer seats) copies the design from United's Economy Plus, at the expense of regular economy's legroom (I believe). Note: if you have noise canceling earphones or headphones like myself, get the 2-jack airline adapter. Lufthansa uses the proprietary dual-jack, at least in economy."
Cons: "Pasta dinner only had 1/8 piece tomato. Stick to the chicken."
Pros: "great service, food, and crew"
Cons: "Absolutly no negatives"
Pros: "We had a great trip -- helpful flight attendants...and no worries at all."
Cons: "DELAYED LEAVING FRANKFURT BY AN HOUR DUE TO BAD WEATHER."
Pros: "Liked the toilets downstairs. Good selection of entertainment. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "When I checked in I was told that I could take my suitcase, which is a carry-on size suitcase, on board. While boarding I was made to check it as luggage and told it was to big and too heavy even though it weighed 12kg."
Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."
Pros: "Confort and kindness"
Cons: "It was too cold"
Pros: "Loved the smooth ride."
Cons: "Bathroom was pretty nasty"
Pros: "Excellent crew, good food & movie selection."
Pros: "Reclinable seats."
Cons: "The food!! The lights could be dimmed as it was a night flight."

Cons: "This was just a short commuter flight from Lyon to Amsterdam for connection."
Pros: "Cabin facilities"
Cons: "They didn’t bring one of my bags"
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "Airplane so uncomfortable. Food horrible. Not even available for one of us what we ask for on what was offered. Bad taste and not what can be on a that length of time flight."
Cons: "I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."
Pros: "My seat at the window was great and the staff really friendly and courteous!"
Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."
Cons: "Flight canceled, poor communication from the airline to the passengers. Møre than 5 hrs delay"
Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."

Pros: "The entertainment options were good."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."
Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"
Pros: "The crew were hardworking, responsive, conscientious and friendly"
Cons: "Really poor entertainment choices esp compared to my inbound AirFrance flight. Boarding was pretty disorganized and late."
Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""
Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"
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"
Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."
Pros: "Crew was friendly..business class seat was very comfortable and seemed wider than most Nice power outlets great entertainment system"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."
Pros: "Good and plenty of food available."
Cons: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."
Pros: "Very friendly and the food and drinks never stopped and no additional charges, a very nice experience over the bargain airlines, free in-flight movies, and entertainment, no cost."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "We love the flight all the way"
Pros: "Was able to check in online, very convenient and easy to access site."
Cons: "I didn't go on this flight, unable to leave Seoul (to Beijing) with China Southern."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Pros: "Having exit aisle made a huge difference in comfort Crew were EXCELLENT"
Cons: "Food was not very good Tasteless and rubbery"
Pros: "Quick and efficient flight. Crew very organized. Great language skills"
Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."
