Restrictions will also be lifted for entry from South Korea, China and Japan if this can be agreed on a reciprocal basis. The list will be reviewed every two weeks.
Entry from any third country is possible for travelers who can demonstrate an important reason for their travel.

The test is free of charge if taken within 72 hours of arrival. Travelers with a negative test may be exempted from the 14-day self-isolation requirement, but some German states require a second negative test before granting an exemption from quarantine.

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.

Pros: "The crew and food were excellent! Movie choices were plentiful!"

The flight to Amman was cancelled/delayed. First we were told it was cancelled and would be put up in a hotel, but on the way the wheelchair driver was asked to return to office and drop us at a gate. At this gate the departure time kept changing every hour or so without any plane at the gate, or staff. This lasted till next day about 3 PM. For this long period There was no water. The was no assistance to bathroom or food or water. All the passangers were upset. They organized and went to talk to the Airline personnel. They returned frustrated since none of the Airline staff knew anything."

Pros: "Everything was very good"
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."

Pros: "Airbus was nice"
Cons: "Delayed by over 1 1/2 hours"

Pros: "Smooth flight, on-tome departure"

Cons: "No complain"
Pros: "Great service all around. As comfortable as you can get for a domestic flight."

Pros: "I had the opportunity to send my carry on to the final destination. The flight was overbooked and there was no place to put carry on on the top place."
Cons: "I did not have the chance to choose my seat. I traveled sandwiched by two overweighted guys. I was holding my arms and was literally compressed by the gentlemen. Horrible experience. If I had the chance to choose my seat I would pick the corridor, and had a little less embarrassment and sweating."

Cons: "The re route to MSP... Seven hour flight time for a two and half hour flight..."
Pros: "Flights were on time boarding was easy. 2nd crew from ATLANTA was friendly."

Cons: "The amount of delays causing us to miss our connection and be stuck in another city for a night before getting to our destination the next day(hopefully)."
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: "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: "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: "The crew were AMAZING and made the flight so much better. Boarding was easy. I also love that the pilot acknowledged the Service men and women on our flight."
Cons: "The older plan didn't have some of the perks that I expected from Comfort +... No conformed headrest, no USB plugs... I paid extra for Comfort + and expected some of these things."
Pros: "Great plane"
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: "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: "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 crew was friendly and respectful."
Cons: "I wasn’t able to get my TV device to function properly"
Pros: "They were nice"
Cons: "They were good"
Pros: "Service was very good, flight was very smooth"
Pros: "The service by the flight attendants was very good starting from the welcome to the end in spite of the fact that it was quite late night flight. Also by fortunate luck I had the chance to sleep as the next three seats to me were all empty in the middle block, which made the whole trip less exhaustive."
Cons: "If the seats next to me weren't empty and I couldn't lay down across all of them it would have been a difficult flight as the economy seats are not even close with economy comfort levels of other international airlines like Turkish Airlines especially the seat pitch size. Entertainment choices could be improved by more recent movies. There were very few selection."
Pros: "The in flight crew was great"
Cons: "I arrived a bit late to the airport. 5:15pm for a 6:05p for an international flight. I realize It is very late. I was delayed by donald trump protestors blocking the highway (not your fault). Dulles was a ghost town ( abnormally slow). All I had was carry-on. They said they closed the flight. They quoted me at $1800 for a one way ticket directly from Lufthansa. The original round trip was $900. I declined, sat down for 15 min booked another Lufthansa flight online for $800, checked in and was through security by 5:50. Just in time for my original flights last call. I could have made it easily. Boooo Lufthansa booo."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and caring. The food was great. Very enjoyable trip!!"

Pros: "On time all the time"

Pros: "they were on-time and we got from IAD to FRA in one piece."
Cons: "you had to pay $35 ahead of time just to select your seats...they only allow 1 checked bag, half the flight was empty in eco plus but they still wanted you to pay to "upgrade", integration with UAL is cumbersome and difficult as you cant manage both legs of a UAL/LH flight from one carrier. Overall mediocre but hey - Cheap fares, you get what you pay for."
Cons: "Lost my luggage ., not happy"
Cons: "bad weather, not your fault"
Pros: "All round excellent services. Food is good, but I wish but I wished More chooses or selection."
Pros: "Excellent service, on time arrival, a great experience! Everything was easy with Lufthansa, which soothed my jitters and helped me relax (as much as is possible!)"
Cons: "We were traveling 2 adults with 2 and 6 year olds. We were all seated on different rows and seats. We tried to fix it at the gate and we were given 2 seats next to each other and 2 behind each other...please train your staff to seat families together!!!"
Pros: "Fast boarding. Smooth flight. Good entertainment. Very pleasant."
Cons: "Flight attendant complained about a passanger right in fron of her in a different language. I understand both languages. Completely unprofessional."

Cons: "No vegan food"
Pros: "Food was actually pretty good, and was plentiful. Comfortable seating."
Cons: "I don't think my tv worked."
Pros: "The flight was delayed two hours. I flew them 10 years ago and thought their seervice rivaled the Asian airlines. Now their service and seat comfort is near the cellar dwellars. The premium coach seat I paid extra for was the narrowest coach seat I have ever had the misfortune to sit in. I am a small man. 5'*8" 165lbs. The normal sized man next to me and I had to sit with our elbows pinned to our ribs. Eight hours of hell. I also had a totally irritating woman from syria behind me. She pushed and banged on my seat back the entire 8 hours. She had to have her loud mouth yapping most of the flight. That was the worse experience I have had flying. Also the attendents didnt care about me. I had to ask for tea. Had to ask three times as they were waalking off"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. The seat was tiny , cramped and uncomfortable. I travel a lot. This is the first negative review I have written in 55 years of flying."
Cons: "flight was late, check-in people were mean and angry to everyone, instead of serving the food straight away since the overnight flight was delaed and then quickly turning the lights off, they waited until 3 hours in to serve food, which meant they didnt turn the lights off until well into the night and only gave us a couple hours to sleep. there were no new movies on board except for batman vs. superman. food tasted weird even for airplane standards. pretty bad overall. i've had better experience with virgin, united, or air france."
Pros: "On time!!!!"
Cons: "We were in economy class. It looked like the seats my wife and I were in were smaller than the surrounding seats. The seat I was assigned was also more narrow than the one my wife was assigned. I am tall, and could not move my legs for the trip. Also, the seat controls were on the inside is the seat. I could not move at all without turning on the overhead light or screen."
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: "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: "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: "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: "The entertainment was pretty good, the comfort okay and the crew was average."
Cons: "they messed the boarding and had us take off 4 hours late, after changing boarding gates 3 times... I missed my connecting train, and had to by another ticket full price..."
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: "in flight service is great, lounges are excellent, and personnel are well trained and courteous"
Cons: "that I couldn't bring my kids into the lounge"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew, comfortable seat, smooth flight, good food!"
Cons: "All good."
Cons: "The staff in the check in was not sure if i need a visa to enter Europe, viena and Frankfurt and i really explained that Albania is in shengen and we do have bio metric passport but they need to verify which took around 15-20minutes waiting there."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "More food, more water"
Pros: "The flat bed"
Cons: "The Captain made loud announcements waking you up"
Pros: "The price is affordable"
Pros: "Food was great, seat was amazing"
Cons: "Boarding was done by bus and it took too long and it want comfortable"
Pros: "I didn’t like a thing. The crew from the gate all the way to the end was rude and nasty. The crew scanning people to get on the plane were so rude at the beginning it was the worst and I fly for my work and I’ll never fly TAP air Portugal again."
Cons: "Train the staff to be nice and pleasant"
Cons: "Ok, it's TAP, it's a bargain, but the "breakfast" was a pitiful piece of meat on a stale piece of bread"
Pros: "Nothing, I tried to cancel the reservation 3 days after I made it and couldn’t even get a percentage back. What a waste."
Cons: "Let me cancel the flight for a percentage back so I didn’t have to waste the entire price of the flight for a ticket I couldn’t use."
Pros: "Food and price"
Cons: "On time departure"
Cons: "They don’t even give glass of water in business class. Terrible attention."
Cons: "Probably the most uncomfortable flight I have taken in a very very long time. The ride was smooth but the seat was so terribly uncomfortable. I was in pain on arrival."
Pros: "attention and food"
Cons: "more bathrooms on the airplane"
Cons: "We had to pay $120 for a checked bag because it “weighed too much”. The lady at the check in counter said they were weighing everyone’s at the gate so there was no way to get around it This however was a lie and they were not checking weight and people got on without having to pay the outrageous fee"
Pros: "Comfortable seats with nice pillow and blanket"
Cons: "Boarding was awkward and slow."
Pros: "The in flight snack was surprisingly diverse and tasty."
Cons: "We had to take a bus from the gate to the plane, which is fine. But we stood on the bus at the gate for 10 minutes after it was completely full before it finally drove to the plane. Then when we were just outside the plane we had to wait again for several minutes before they would let us off."
Pros: "The only salvation was the entertainment choices. ."
Cons: "The planes need to upgrade the seats. When we were served food if the person push their seat back your food tray would flip like two did on our flight. Staff was jaded and sarcastic. I'm glad I had a discounted flight. I'd be angry if I paid full price. Poor staff, seat architecture, and poor food."
Pros: "Crew was superb!! Very attentive and extremely willing to help people when called upon."
Cons: "Aircraft entertainment screens were not working at all at a lot of seats. Airbus 330-300 was dated and the cabin amenities were in disrepair. But overall the flight satisfied everything that was needed!"
Cons: "Checked bag fee was expensive at $120 per bag. For the two of us bags cost $240. The plane boarded late this departed and arrived late. Otherwise a very good flight. Very comfortable, all Amenities worked, the plane was clean and the staff accommodating."
Cons: "We missed our connecting flight due to the fact that the TAP crew leaving Barcelona said there was “fog” and therefore, nearly half of the flight had the same connecting flight to London. On top of it, they had no other flights and put us up in a hotel instead."
Pros: "We really enjoyed TAP Air Portugal and expect to fly with them again. Comfortable seats, pillow, blanket, and MEALS! Good ones with actual silver! USB charging port at every seat, with a good selection of movies. Great airline for a great price!"
Pros: "The crew was generously serving me and the price was more reasonable than any other."
Cons: "I had a huge passenger next to me who took most of my space the whole time during the flight and ended up hurting my neck and back. I understand it had nothing to do with the crew, but not comfortable at all. Besides, there was no entertainment and even outlet available."
Pros: "Service was good and the food was better than average."
Cons: "Paying extra for business class so you can sleep just isn't worth it with TAP. We had an older plane, showing its age, and the seats did not go completely flat. So, I kept slipping down and my feet jammed into the seat in front of me."
Cons: "the ground personnel were not nice. They also did not seem to know what they were doing. Inconsistent communication. No patience with customers."
Pros: "Staff was pleasant, nothing special"
Cons: "Food was mediocre and cold except for the major hot dish. Lights were on almost all night in cabiaudio and video were subpar or nonexistent. Staff explained it was an old plan Seats were okay for short fight but not comfortable for long flight"
Cons: "I was dehydrated because I could barely get enough water to drink"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "1) An extra piece of baggage, using the iPhone TAP, was priced at EUR 65; but, finalizing the purchase, the app tried to charge me EUR 140! Had to go to LIS airport to buy at the right price. 2) Had to pay for my free of charge seats!!!! They changed 4 times!!! a) Having tickets with seat assignments free of charge, had the chosen seats confirmed on e-ticket. b) At airport, 3 days before departure, attendant informed that seats assignment had been erased; she made new seat assignments at worse location; c) On check-in, found that seats were changed again to worse even; now to the back, and “2 in the middle of 4”. d) Had to pay to get my original free of charge seat assignments!!! Had similar situations in all my recent TAP flights. Cannot believe is a system problem! Looks like more a TAP policy to short-change (long time, in my case) customers."
Cons: "Had to check 2 of our luggages, and it cost $95 per piece. Never flown an airline where I had to pay more than $50 per piece. Also carryon has to be less than 8 kg. Our small luggage that we had to check never had any problems with any other airlines about being a carryon but since it was over 8 kg, it had to be checked. Took a 7.5 hour flight and the entertainment screen was not working for anyone, as the system was broken. Will not be flying with airline ever again."
Pros: "The crew did a great job."
Cons: "The boarding process was nutz. We had to take a bus away from the terminal to board the plane. The flight was delayed. I was not very happy to have to spend $92 to check 2 bags."
Cons: "Not good I book a fly"
Pros: "All flights have been on time. Seats and entertainment system are acceptable"
Cons: "Apart from the unorganized immigration and check-in process the service is very average. On both transatlantic flights the toilets did not work properly. Furthermore the business practice to charge you for any luggage $ 90 at airport without prior notice during the booking process is quite unpleasant and uncommon for transatlantic flights. Would be good that airline as well as internet travel agent would advice about this additional costs in a more transparent way before you purchase the ticket"
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Entertainment. Small spaces."
Pros: "On time, easy boarding"

Cons: "Seats in economy were uncomfortable. Food was fair, at best. Wine was offered with dinner(a plus) but only once."
Pros: "I had a flight from Madrid --> Lisbon airport with a final connection from Lisbon --> NYC JFK and we were delayed in Madrid therefore arriving at boarding time of our other flight in Lisbon. The crew was so professional and prepared that when we landed in Lisbon there was a bus that brought about 25 of us who were connecting with final destination to JFK to the closest door to go through passport control and board onto our flight to JFK that they held for a good 30-45 minutes until all of us made our connection. Very professional and organized. Much appreciated that I didn't miss my final connection! Love flying TAP and will continue to do so!"
Cons: "Passenger attention not he best"
Cons: "Our tickets said our flight was at 11. We got to the airport two hours early but found out our flight was actually at 10 (they wouldn't let us to try to make it). The airline didn't take into account / adjust the local time when we booked. Multiple customers experienced the same issue. We had to buy tickets on another airline."
Pros: "Smooth landing"
Cons: "A few bumpy moments in the air!"
Pros: "Best flight I have had in years. We were treated like customers, meals were excelent, boarding process was well managed, flight crew was pleasant, curteous, attentive, I could go on & on. Other airlines would do themselves and the rest of us a favor by following their process."

Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful"
Cons: "The plane was very old, the screens to watch the TV were horrible, the resolution was very bad, you can't barely see anything. The choices or movies are very bad, and you cannot select when to start the movie. Some toilets did not have soap."
Pros: "They did beautiful jap thank you so much for your service ."

Cons: "Only thing I didn't like was that the airline doesn't offer wifi!"
Pros: "the flight itself was great"
Cons: "the airport in Lisbon is really disorganized with few people to check all the passports, so it took a long time to get to the connecting flight."
Pros: "Flight attendant service was great."
Cons: "I'm tall and the seats are cramped."
Cons: "Never made it to destination"
Cons: "Poor WiFi. Poor video. Very small seating"
Pros: "Entertainment, food, service, on-time landing (early!)"
Cons: "Many delays. Uncomfortable seats. No outlets on that particular plane."
Pros: "One of us had the last seat on the plane even though they were reserved almost a month ago. However we had signed up for basic economy so that was not a shock. What was a shock was that water was dripping from the top side track onto his lap and he had to use the provided brochures to redirect the dripping water. The steward said it was condensation and that was it. Also, since it was next to bathroom, the smell wasn't great and the small child screaming while waiting to get into the bathroom wasn't pleasant."
Cons: "We were forced to deplane in DC and instructed to go to the United customer service counter to arrange our missed connections in Frankfurt. After standing in line at the United counter for 2 hours, we were told to go to our gate to re-board our plane. we wasted all that time standing and all but 2 agents had left the counter to take a break. it was EXTREMELY STRESSFUL not knowing what would happen to our missed connections. when we reboarded WE still did not have connecting flights.Also, on the United flight to Frankfurt, I had a premium economy seat and it was HORRIFIC. the extra leg room did NOT make the seat more comfortable and I SUFFERED greatly because I am recovering from an injury. Upon arrival in Frankfurt, after a great deal of begging, I got a hotel room for the night and upgrad to economy premium for the flight from Frankfurt to Addis. that Lufthana flight was better because my seat reclined somewhat but still I had a great deal of pain throughout the flight and I would have preferred to have been upgraded to business so that I could lay flat to ease my physical pain. Overall, the experience was extremely STRESSFUL and painful and the only way, I feel that Lufthana can repair this situation is to give me a free upgrade to business on my flight home.to Miami"
Pros: "An old 777 , dirty and the food was horrible."
Pros: "We liked our friendly and attentive flight attendants, and our safe travel to our destination. Thank you!"

Pros: "Flight was on time, except that we had to wait a few minutes for more oxygen to be boarded because the flight was completely flow (overbook in fact)."
Cons: "Both my daughter's and my seats were broken. We were not given seats until just before boarding, luckily they were together."
Pros: "All fine, except delay"

Cons: "Crammed seats, poor quality entertainment system (but at least with access to in-seat monitor, while on the way to the US that was not available), no additional amenities of any kind, including in the restroom, bad quality and insufficient quantity for food and drinks, and the usual/to-be-expected poor/disrespectful attitude of the United flight and gate attendants."
Pros: "On-board WiFi was a nice touch, but redundant as there was no way to charge your electronic devices"
Cons: "Felt herded like cattle. Had to bring your own headphones... WTF? Children's meals requested for my 6-year-old were practically inedible. "Breakfast" consisted a stale, chewy croissant (which I believe I am still trying to digest a week later...) and yogurt. No USB port to charge electronic devices"
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Intercom anouncements on late night flight. Way too many about the ball game"

Cons: "My Bags were sent to wrong flight and now still waiting for my luggage. Trying to call the numbers to track my bags and the number is always busy. I don't know when I will have have my bags. It is very frustrating"
Cons: "For a trans-Atlantic flight this was a very small plane with very tight seats. The bathrooms smelled throughout the plane. Many seat back TVs didrn't function."
Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and kept the flight interesting."
Cons: "The check in process did not allow us to select seats until we got to the airport so we had to sit separately."
Pros: "The United crew were extremely pleasant and helpful"

Cons: "Older plane. Entertainment was poor and limited. Food wasn'the good."
Pros: "Food was a bit better than I expected. Videos kept going out. Staff were great. Plane landed well!"
Pros: "that the plane landed in one piece"
Cons: "it was late 1.5 hours it badly was overbooked hand luggage hysteria lack of aircon while on the ground overall attitude of crew"
Cons: "The plane was old. Entertainment screen too small and no way to restart a show. No AC power sockets at chairs. I was sitting at back of the plane and at the time food came there was no choice - they ran out of food options. Also, the plane storage bins were too small to fit small bags."
Pros: "Lots of movies and shows plus constant tracking info."
Cons: "Closeness of seats and worn out touch screens on seat backs resulted in people behind us constantly kicking and pounding on our setbacks throughout the flight. Cleaning crew did not do a thorough job, leaving trash and used chewing gum on floor from previous flight."
Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there. My baggage did not reach with me and they promised to deliver it with in next 6 hours and it turned out that they took more than 18 hours to deliver my baggage to my home. My entire day got wasted waiting for this baggage to reach me. Poor communication made me wait and watch the door every hour. I tried to reach and get some information on when that baggage would reach me but no body knows."
Cons: "Small cramped plan. Seats did not recline."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and announced at midnight"
Pros: "The mango sorbet"
Pros: "Crew were gracious & helpful. Plane left and arrived on time. Frequent offers of beverages."
Cons: "There was no space for legs and feet. Rows are too close together in economy. Only my left foot could extend forward - a metal box was bolted to the floor where a right foot would go. Seatback pockets with magazines, headphones, etc take space that knees require. Then when my front neighbor fully reclined for 7 hours, I was really pinned in (middle seat of center section). It can't be healthy to be physically restricted for so long. Very uncomfortable. Ryanair seats packed this close (for much shorter flights) don't seem to have floor obstruction, and eliminate the pockets and recline features which helps."
Pros: "Good stuff Dave"
Pros: "Was pleasantly surprised by leg room in coach"
Cons: "More water needs to be offered more often"
