Cons: "At Mumbai airport, during check-in I was told that my carry on bag plus personal item together should weigh not more than 7kgs!! I have never had any airline actually weigh my personal item (laptop backpack) before this journey. Eventually I ended up stuffing my check-in bags with everything I was carrying in my carry on bag before I was allowed to check in. The weird thing is, I was never told about this rule on my journey from the US to India."

Next to a huge obese guy. He slept whole journey, must of had nightmares and jumped and banged me repeatadly. I had the first meal, which was not great but edible. I couldn't eat it properly as I couldn't move my left arm due to the blob Sat next to me. I asked the stewardess to wake me at the meal times so I could get more food. She didn't. Not once. I couldn't even get out the seat to go toilet or get any of the help yourself stuff outside the toilets due to the fat blob I was put next too.

Pros: "Easy booking of flight"

Cons: "The food was THE worst I've ever had on any flight ever. And they served the same food for both meals... chicken, fish, or pasta for dinner AND breakfast... the latter which was at 3am of the time zone I was coming from. Both my kids (5 and 7) REFUSED to eat any of the food except the brew& butter, despite starving. My row and row behind me lost power during the flight so we had NO entertainment, and could no longer charge our devices for the rest of the 11-hour flight. They offered us magazines, but we had no overhead lights to be able to see. The crew managed to reboot the system about 2 hours after the first meal, so we enjoyed some entertainment, but after a little while, the movie and sound stopped working. After about an hour an announcement was made that the entire entertainment system would be rebooted. It started working around the last hour of the flight. Not relaxing at all."

Cons: "Families w/ babies overran the flight with incessant crying, talking, and moving around for the entire 14 hour trip!!! It made for a stressful and uncomfortable journey. Families with babies and young kids should be seated in their own section with some type of sound barrier. The flight attendants did nothing to control these families who took over sections of the plane as if it were their own personal space. I empathize, Im a mother. But have some common courtesy!"

Cons: "Medicore service tryed almost all major airlines this was the worst service."

Cons: "was travelling with a 1 yr old. And it was really difficult. She was a bit sick. At one point she vomited and there was an attendant near us and granted that it was time for take off and no one can be standing up but after that she didn't even offered anything to clean up or ask us if everything is alright and she even had the look of disgust on her face while she was sitting down. All throughout the duration of the flight no one go for the extra mile to assist me as I was alone with a toddler. I have to ask for the bassinet 3x and it took them a long time. No one gave us the toddler meal which I ordered previously. I thought emirates was a better airline than qatar airways but I was gravely mistaken. Even China southern can do better than that.

Cons: "I thought I'd get an overnight stay due to the distance of my flight and the length of my layover (10 hours) but I found out too late that I didn't. The airport is not conducive to comfortable sleeping! I did appreciate the meal voucher though; make sure you ask for it at the Emirates Connecting Flights desk if you have a connecting flight with Emirates Airlines."

Cons: "Food was not given properly, no snacks was there which I get in between breakfast and meal every time I fly from Dubai to Boston or the reverse.

Pros: "Loved the selection of movies. Airplane seats were comfy. Departure and connections were on time."
Cons: "Flight attendants were very slow to respond to requests and when an old passenger threw up, they didn't offer him help. They just sprayed the area and left the yuck instead of cleaning up immediately, despite my numerous requests. So you can imagine the smell."

Cons: "Very small space"

Pros: "Service is good as well as food."

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.

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: "-maintenance had to fix an issue that the team was not transparent about for 2.5 hours. 0at least boarding happened swiftly -the male crew member was GREAT but the female crew members two of them were very short, rude, and not there to bring comfort to customers -chicken meal was tasty, but made both me and my father sick. Muffin for breakfast was mediocre as well -tv was good, but touch screen sometimes doesn't work."

Pros: "Generally very pleasant flight"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Flight on time, and luggage was at destination. Crew OK"

Cons: "Our flight was delayed by three hours due to “technical problems“. We were never updated during the weight and when we were told that the flight was canceled everyone was told to go back to the ticketing area to pick up their luggage and to find other options. When we were almost halfway there we were told to turn around and that the flight in fact was not canceled. The food was mediocre at best in the service on the plane was in adequate. They were understaffed and staff to peer to be stressed and fatigued. The seats were small and cramped and not well padded in the economy section. We are going to be flying on Lufthansa in the spring and will hope that their services are better than what we experienced on Austrian air."

Pros: "The service. Very attentive staff."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Cons: "Thechnical problems with the plane.One hour we were sitting in the plane and waiting departure"

Pros: "i loved the food, the alcohol, the specialty coffees. i loved the service. i loved the lay down seat. i loved the entertainment."
Cons: "no complaints whatsoever. this was my best flight to vienna- or to europe."

Pros: "The outbound flight from Vienna to IAD had much better service. The return flight from IAD to Vienna, the crew didn't come back to refill water or ask to top up drinks. The food choices were more limited. The entertainment system on the flight needs a larger selection."

Pros: "easy boarding"
Cons: "bad seating. you previously provided a comfort kit but discontinued it."

Cons: "Our home was damaged, and we were without power for 6 days due to Hurricane Irma. We called the airlines repeatedly in an effort to cancel the ticket before the flight. They refused to cancel the tickets. Heartless"

Pros: "The cabin was clean and comfortable. The crew was efficient and friendly. We departed early and arrived early and the entertainment was just what I wanted."
Cons: "Nothing - it was a great flight"

Cons: "I will never fly Austrian again! They disrespected my family, they did not honor my reservations, and the staff was just nasty!"

Cons: "My father and I were seated in biz class but were unable to sleep because of a fan noise directly over our seats in Row 9. We complained to the attendant about it but she was unable to determine the cause. Many hours later, a different crew member identified the noise source and stopped it by simply flipping a switch. This disruptive noise could have easily been avoided but the ignorance of the crew member to whom we complained failed to solve it. By the time the second crew member identified the problem there was not enough time to sleep. This experience was extremely disappointing. We paid extra to fly business class so we could sleep, but this ridiculous crew error fouled our plans. We asked the crew to file a report about it and they did. Look into it. We expect a refund of the extra fare we paid, or else we will never fly Austrian Airlines again. I am an affluent person and I travel internationally 6 times per year. You would be smart not to anger me and lose my business."

Pros: "The venue was overall ok"

Pros: "I loved the boarding process. Everything was very organized! I was lucky to sit by myself next to the window, so i had plenty of space to stretch. The flight was right on schedule, so i didnt have to worry about making it to the next flight. Food was good. We were offered the water through the whole trip which is nice, because i always feel super dehydrated on the plane."
Cons: "I wasn't very satisfied with the flight attendants. I don't know if its just me getting used to american customer service, or me actually working at the customer service, but it's definetely not the greatest level of service. Girls were giving me an attitude and "smartie" ( in a rude way) responds which kinda made me feel uncomfortable and disrespected. I had the same experience with Lufthansa before. And once with russian airlines. Maybe its some kinda tendency to get erogant at this job, but please, don't get me wrong, its not that kinda job where you should look at people from above"

Pros: "All flight members were servicing very pleasantly"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew were very nice"
Cons: "Toilets could be cleaned more often"

Cons: "The crew members on the flight from Washington to Vienna were absolutely rude and unhelpful."

Cons: "I luked the atmosphire and the silence ."

Pros: "Their first class looked very comfy"

Pros: "everything on time, good selection of movies"
Cons: "the food....pretty bad"

Pros: "Never again with KAYAK. Sorry."

Cons: "Flight from Dulles to Vienna was cancelled in the morning on the day of departure. We contacted Austrian and rebooked with Air France. The Air France flights were good overall. The food was okay, entertainment excellent, comfort good, boarding good, crew okay. On flight to Paris, the crew did not serve water during the period between dinner and the service before landing."

Pros: "Wonderful experience"

Pros: "Everything went well other than what was served for breakfast."
Cons: "The food that was served for dinner was fine. Some fruit/yogurt would have been far better for breakfast than the muffin that was served."

Pros: "Very good choice of Entertainment. Crew is very kind AND helpfull.Excelent service from the begining to the End."

Cons: "Seats in economy class were crammed with next to no leg room"

Pros: "Food, courtesy of flight attendants."
Cons: "Old plane. Very little space in chairs."

Pros: "Exiting the aircraft."
Cons: "United did not honour the seat assignment that Airfare.com gave me so I sat in a middle seat. But the entire seating plan on United is so bad it should be a violation of the anti torture convention."

Pros: "Free food, entertainment and wasnt full"
Cons: "Normal airline food.... what can you do I paid more in taxes and fees than the ticket. Seems wrong"

Cons: "Very nice crew and great food"

Pros: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."

Pros: "The crew was very kind"

Pros: "Impressive service... amazing crew, very friendly and professional"

Pros: "Muslim food"

Cons: "Time"

Pros: "Service and crew amazing friendly and went out of the way to Make u feel special even the pilots gave updates thru out the flight"

Pros: "The aircraft"
Cons: "No overbooking next time!"

Pros: "Crew was nice and pleasant"
Cons: "Flight very late"

Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"

Cons: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."

Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and overhead bin space was very small"

Pros: "Nice attention and good food. Plane and seats are confortable"

Pros: "Good for both."
Cons: "Bigger seats."

Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."

Cons: "Dozens of high school students screaming and climbing onto seats, crew did not intervene."

Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"

Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."

Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"

Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"

Pros: "Comfort was better than on the previous Dash-8. Food was OK."
Cons: "Despised the cold temperature and cold draft in world business even with all vents shut off...gave me a head cold. Boarding was disorganized. There was no sense of direction; ergo, everyone was jumping in."

Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "I paid a top price for my ticket and expect the advertised amenities to work. Upgrade or replacement for entertainment system."

Pros: "More than adequate room, And very good service from a very professional staff. Head and shoulders abovevany American carrier, and several European lines I have flown."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."

Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."

Pros: "Everything is top notch for an airline company."
Cons: "Nothing.... I enjoyed every moment of the flight."

Cons: "Customer service"

Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."

Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."

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: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"

Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."

Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."

Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."

Pros: "Nice seats, comfortable."
Cons: "Again, no aisle seat for SkyTeam Gold member. Also, my baggage was lost. First bag arrived a day late, second after I had left Billund and it was six days before the bag with my clothes reached me. I was told I will have 100 euro credit for clothing, but in the winter and for 6 days, this was not even close to the amount I needed for clothing and necessities, to have my time here."

Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."

Pros: "Boarding/unboarding"
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."

Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"

Pros: "Professional, friendly service. Punctual, safe flight. Comfortable, spotless airplane."
Cons: "What is there not to like about KLM? I cannot find anything."

Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"

Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."

Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."

Pros: "Same as above"

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: "Very good flight, excellent service and good food."

Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"

Pros: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"

Pros: "Service of the staff was great"
Cons: "Turbulence, with all our technology we still cannot avoid this?"

Pros: "Almost missed flight due to line at customs and having to pick up suitcase and check in again, they did wait for me though"

Pros: "- entertainment systen was OK (movies), but has no current news - food was good - windows can be darkened progressively"
Cons: "- Schiphol airport (AMS) is small, crowded, noisy; no water fountains; toilets are dirty and insufficient in number; SFO is much better - KLM boarding process was chaotic (not by group or row number), boarding/security personnel (4 old guys) didn't have a clue - 787 is noisy, chairs are uncomfortable (my back still hurts) and very close together, they also recline way too much - food trays not collected promptly - noisy babies on all flights - clearly not enough cabin crew for a full flight - no or wrong info by pilots on timing (crew are always lying anyway) - gate is all around the back at SFO (long taxi to get there) - they inserted people in wheelchairs during deboarding thus holding everybody up."

Pros: "Food was relatively good"
Cons: "We had ourtrip from San Francisco to Amsterdam which is one of the longest flights ever, andthe entertainment system wasnt working, we kept on telling them several times but nothing happened and at the end they wereeven avoiding us. By the end of the trip when we were approaching Ams, a hostess came and she gave us a $25 dollar discountvoucher to be used in our next trip, this is totally not acceptable!"
