Cons: "Not being 1 hour late"
Cons: "Flight got delayed 30 minutes"
Pros: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"
Pros: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
Cons: "The plane was very hot"
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: "The seats could have been bigger."

Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata.

Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"

Pros: "Crew was awesome."
Cons: "The transfer at Moscow airport is too slow. A huge jumbo jet of over 200 passengers gets re-checked only by two teams of security check assistants. Elderly and families are eager to pass the check-point as quickly as possible. And those guys in the airport are just not seeing the problem."

Pros: "Because the flight was canceled"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "I missed an earlier connecting flight and was placed on a later flight at a window seat with the most uncomfortable seating. I sat there for the entire flight with pain from how hard the seat felt. Also, the drinks and refreshment was severely lacking. The wait time between drinks and meals was too long. I found it odd that they didn’t serve drinks with food either"

Pros: "Worked like a well-oiled machine. Friendly food service right on time and in good sequence, quality food, free simple self-service "bar" in between at any time. Huge choice of decently new movies and much more on the entertainment system."
Cons: "Little thing that I usually don't notice as I normally travel with good noise-reducing headphones. But I forgot to take them with me this time and had to use the earbuds that were handed by the attendant. They really suck. Distorted, narrow band sound makes it almost impossible to discern the soundtrack. Would not forget my good headphones again ."
Pros: "Quick boarding, nice and friendly crew, lots of movies and shows to pick from"
Cons: "Food tasted good but portions were really small, like kids meal. Crew was not updated with the times and left 45 minutes late which made us miss our connection flight and Im writing this while waiting for the next one we had to schedule. My 11 months old is with us and this was very inconvenient to say the least"
Pros: "Crew staff worked hard."
Cons: "I was given wrong information about my baggage at the Moscow airport. Therefore, I wasted about 2 hours in locating my baggage on the carousel while my baggage was with the Aeroflot staff."
Cons: "The crew had no smile, neither a hospitable attitude. The food in the second meal seemed stale. I did not finish the meal for fear of getting sick. The entertainment system was the slowest I have ever used in my life. The glass holder for my seat was broken. It took me 7-8 times calling assistance that someone finally came, which took at least 40 minutes. And last but not the least there was water dripping on the passenger next to me."
Pros: "they provided juice or water every 30 mins. food was ok"
Cons: "The entertainment was not working for the entire flight. not much vegetarian options"
Pros: "This was my grandma's flight, and she said it was good (as usual she doesn't complain and is positive)!"

Cons: "The airport and the way that they Embark the plane.!"
Cons: "Flight attendants weren't friendly and couldn't speak English."
Pros: "Again, the in-flight experience was pleasant. I will definitely use Aeroflot in future, and has already recommended it to my friends."
Cons: "However, the Sheremetyevo Airport could use some improvement, especially the airport space management which needs to be streamlined. First, for international transfer, a big crowd had to squeezed into a small space and wait for security check. Secondly, there are too many shops in the waiting areas, and the passengers had to compete for space and sit on stairs, while the internal air quality was quite poor which became more severe in summer. Thirdly, the toilets need a complete re-vamp. It was not a pleasant experience to use toilet."
Cons: "food need to be improved, very little space for legs, between sits !!! Unfortunately, quite disappointing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 3 hours. With a 3 hour layover, that meant 6 hours at Moscow D terminal. Too long."

Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "The Airflot staff at the airport was very rude and unprofessional"
Cons: "Old plane, terrible food, had to wait almost an hour for help"
Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Food and crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 1.5 hours. As a result I was late for my next flights, which I bought as separate tickets. Aeroflot didn't gave me any compensation. Airport coworkers were COMPLETELY impolite. Aeroflot members and workers were ABSOLUTELY IMPOLITE, IGNORANT and did everything to make money of me. Because of this, I lost 950$ in order to buy another ticket."
Pros: "Very good service. On time arrival."
Pros: "There was a bottle that leaked in the overhead compartments. I was dripped on during take off. They cleaned up the mess, but I still had to smell like alcohol for the rest of the flight. It was unfortunate, but everyone was pleasant."
Pros: "Everything: new aircraft, comfortable seats, professionally crew, delicious meal - one of the great aircompany"
Cons: "May be transfer from airplane to airport - it was a bus."
Pros: "Entertainment and food"
Cons: "I checked in early among the first ten and they still left my luggage behind. I still don't have my bag. It arrives from Russia at 145 am tonight and I fly out to Orlando at 250 am. why wasn't my bag on my page?. I hope I get it. Out of the four flights I took, all but one were extremely late with no explanation as to why. I missed one connection and had to stay in airport hotel in Moscow. They gave me food and took care of the hotel, but when I kept asking about my connecting flight out of Moscow, no one would give me a straight answer. There's a definite language barrier and culture barrier. Customer service is curt and brash at best. When I asked about getting my delta skymiles Again in Moscow, the guy at the counter was annoyed with me, but eventually looked it up."
Cons: "For some reason handles between seats couldn't be raised. we were traveling with a child, and could not use three seats as a "bed" as usual"

Pros: "It was a nice surprise that the most inexpensive flight to Warsaw happened to be pretty awesome!"
Cons: "The organization of the boarding process was a bit confusing and disorganized. They also ran out of beef and chicken options for our section of the plane, but made an exception for one lady who complained A LOT."
Pros: "comfort of aircraft, professionalism of crew my second flight with Aeroflot following an enjoyable trip from Tel Aviv to St. Petersburg. Happy to consider Aeroflot for future flights depending of course of schedule and pricing"
Cons: "too many public announcements too much cabin baggage allowed on aircraft - many of the bags, cases, parcels were well beyond international guidelines regarding weight and size"
