Cons: "Everything was great! There was a small delay, and that’s all."

Cons: "Flight was delayed at departure. Long taxying to gate on tarmac. Restless children onboard. Was happy when door opened and fresh air came in. Staff was very courteous giving the circumstances of a lot of spillage by passengers of snacks brought onboard."

Pros: "Crew was nice and the flight was fine"
Cons: "I was quite shocked that the seat I had originally been put in the head phone jack and The Wholearea where the channel changes was falling apart. I was able to switch seats due to flight being not full but that would be annoying. I also was weirded out that they did not ha e touch screens. In general the plane just seemed old and dirty to me."

Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable, very back of the plane but I had enough room. It was a pretty short (under two hour) flight so I slept, but overall good!"

Pros: "We eventually got there"
Cons: "No communication, no direction. Over an hour late and it was handled so ineffectively"

The leg room was a great surprise. No hassle with bags. Great snacks, wi-fi and movies for FREE! I was so tickled. I've never flown JetBlue. I thought it was just another low-cost airline that makes you pay for everything , what a nice surprise! I immediately gave you a shout-out on my facebook account. Best flight experience I've had in a long time. Thank you."

Pros: "Boarding and gate location"
Cons: "I’m absolutely not a cold natured person, however I was freezing and extremely uncomfortable the entire flight."

Pros: "Great snacks, nice plane staff."
Cons: "An electrical problem caused the plane to shut down. Rather than finding us new flights, we waited for many hours for the plane to be repaired. I was planning on making it to work by 9 this morning but the only folks who received alternate flights were the ones with connections :( in addition to this, the power shutting down on the plane was extremely unsettling. I have flown hundreds of times and have zero fear of flying. Today, I was terrified that the power would shut off mid-flight at any moment. I truly wish we'd been given another plane...i know that's tough. But something along those lines would have been better than stepping back on the one that shut down with all of us in it...after waiting for hours for it to be repaired. I do appreciate the $150 coupon though."

Cons: "The seat was hard. I could feel the bolts under the cushion."

Pros: "Everything was splendid as usual. Except for the flight attendant "serving" the bulkhead, which costs an extra $90. He consistently effectively told us to shove it when we needed the slightest thing. Never had a bad experience w/ JetBlue employees at any time. My two seatmates suffered the same rudeness, in addition to a broken tv."
Cons: "Only the aforementioned flight attendant. rkbarnettphd"

Pros: "I always fly Turkish Air when I can. I like it a lot"
Cons: "This flight was a standard deviation below the usual quality. The crew seemed inexperienced, and the service was slow.

Cons: "Airport terminal and boarding staff did not speak english. Only said sorry and did not try to change 7 different seats for our family."

The request was clearly spelled out on my boarding pass along with my personal oxygen equipment information. I kept asking different staff and they would call for me then say somebody would be there.

Cons: "Connection very very tight and stressful Had to run to connecting flight and just made it by <1 minute"

Skipped a few rows with drinks and then told them there was no time to bring even a glass of water. Fortunately another crew member (who we also asked as they went by) brought water to those she had skipped who wanted it. My TV monitor was not working. Aging planes - need a thorough cleaning. The announcements were garbled and very difficult to hear."

Cons: "I was enquiringly about the transfer of my luggage from the Hurghada flight with sunexpress with one of the Lufthansa correspondents at the central fest and the guy was absolutely clueless.

Pros: "WiFi on long flight from Detroit to Frankfurt"

Pros: "Everything! The service of the flight attendants, in full ugh entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was great. I would say that I didn't like the automation and self serve check in at Munich Airport not because it wasn't easy or efficient, but because I love human interactions. I know this is the way society is tending, towards automation, but I don't love it. I prefer to speak to a real person. Thank you for reading."

Pros: "Service is outstanding in economy and puts US airlines to shame. Lufthansa is the best way to fly to Europe."
Cons: "Clearing passport control in Frankfurt is very slow. The setup is not very good for a world class airport. You need to give yourself at least an hour."

Pros: "Tans it time to Amman is too long and that is the most distressing"

Pros: "Comfortalble trip"
Cons: "Boarding delay"

Cons: "Not well organized and food is unhealthy"

Cons: "Being asked, when other passengers were around me, how much money I cary with me. This is a dangerous thing. I don't know whom I travel with, and I felt at risk knowing that other people know how much cash I have with me. Plus, the money were counted on the passageway to the plane, with people walking by. I strongly believe that you should change the method you ask and check passengers for cash. I heard other details that I shouldn't hear from another women who was also checked. What I ask is PRIVACY."

Pros: "The flight from DTW to FRA was made that much better by a particular flight attendant who actually remembered it was my first time flying. She checked with me personally as we were disembarking in FRA to see how my flight was. I unfortunately did not catch her name, but she was the highlight of the flight. If I fly again, I will definitely fly Lufthansa for flight crew like her. I skipped the evening meal as I was feeling unwell, but I had the breakfast. The fresh fruit, and especially the watermelon was delicious. There just wasn't enough of it."

Pros: "The food was good and the crew members were very friendly and caring."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by about 2 hours but we still made it to Germany with enough time to catch the Moscow flight and check out the duty free stores."

Cons: "All of the less than good, obvious!"

Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane.

Cons: "No reading light in my seat..."

Pros: "Economy comfort was very nice, food decent, plenty of toilets to avoid overcrowding, and good entertainment selection."

Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."

Pros: "Overall booking and airport was ok. Food was also actually quite good."
Cons: "A comfort of the seats... well its economy class in the end. Entertainment was just dreadful - small screen with visible pixels - I was unable to watch any movie."

Pros: "Restrooms clean, decent food and drink, nice cabin crew."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Everything was clean and well organized."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours."

Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."

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

Pros: "Friendly in-flight personell"
Cons: "Approx. 1 hour delay, which was not the airline's fault (construction on runways)"

Pros: "We got a meal for a 1h flight only"
Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"

Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."

Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"

Pros: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"

Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"

Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."

Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."

Pros: "Staff both at the airport and in the plane were professional and welcoming. Depsite short distance sandwich and drink were offered."
Cons: "Nothing to be honest . All positive."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."

Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"

Cons: "Long stop over at Schiphol. Too Long!!!!"

Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"

Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."

Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."

Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."

Pros: "Seat space was good for a short flight, inclusive of free snack and drink."
Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."

Pros: "Flight unpleasant. Ground staff in Marseiile great but gate crew didn't control carry on baggage and many of us could not use overhead bins because of passengers who stowed more than one and often oversized suitcases above, so we and many others had to place carry on suitcases under seat. Attendant on plane totally unhelpful and could have rearranged a few bags to make room but preferred to stay in back of plane and talk. To be fair, rest of flight was pleasant although late due in part to boarding issues."
Cons: "Carry on baggage issues and storage on plane. One aloof and unhelpful member of flight crew."

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

Pros: "Boarding was smooth and hassle free, crew were friendly and helpful, food and drinks were very good, entertainment system is awesome and up to date with latest contents, good flight overall"
Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"

Cons: "I missed my flight because of MU"

Cons: "sardines!"

Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."

Pros: "The flight crew were kind, polite, and attentive."
Cons: "Bussing to the plane was a bit odd, but the crew remained organized in doing so. When we arrived to the plane, they had both entrances open so that those sitting near the rear of the plane would enter from the back. Plane was a little chilly, but I have come to expect that one most flights."

Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."

Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"

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: "Overall, good flight"

Pros: "Flight was delayed by over three hours."
