Pros: "The crew was fantastic!! They saved this rating."
Cons: "Old plane. No power outlet, no wifi, entertainment system was glitchy... if it was not for the crew, this would have been the poorest u could get. Doha security and transfer were unruly, long, and a mess. Terrible experience there. Nearly missed connection. Dreading going through there on return flight"

Cons: "I didn't have much time on my layover, i would've expected the transfer to be better."

Pros: "The flight was on time. It was quiet so no boarding issues done quickly. Food was good. Good choice of flights."

Pros: "I liked everything about the flight and the service was great!"

Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."

Pros: "The food on foreign airlines is so much better than on american airlines (they even offer something in economy class on short local flights)."
Cons: "The seat spacing on the 70-minute flisght was a little cramped - it would be even worse for a taller person than I (at 5'10")."

Pros: "Lots of space as the flight quite quiet. Very friendly staff."

Pros: "Overall it was a nice flight however some areas need some attention. Boarding gates were very crowded and there was no crowd management in the small area. Secondly, the food was not at all upto the mark. If you are serving sandwich atleast make it flavorful or just serve drinks on this short flight with nuts/biscuits/chocolate."
Cons: "Read on the left."

Pros: "The airplane was spacious."
Cons: "The omelette was too tough."

Pros: "Truly give star service for business class"

Cons: "Food choices could be better."

Pros: "Comfortable and easy"
Cons: "Departs in early morning"

Cons: "Steep decline in food quality"

Cons: "I was trapped in the window seat, because my neighbors were sleeping. Not Qatar's fault"

Cons: "The boarding process started too early and some of the passengers were annoying as they jump over you because they were not directed to the correct aisle."

Cons: "The flight heading back from Scotland was delayed due to mechanical issues and we missed connecting flights. Although that being said, they did provide vouches until we knew the status of our plane."

Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. Their customer care is second to none. The food is excellent and i ate throughout my flight."
Cons: "The comfort was a bit below my expectations. Sitting on the seats along the isle was uncomfortable as they are closely placed. There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "delays with little information and compensation"

Cons: "Realised that for short flights they do not supply headsets. This is rather strange, since the media content they have is useless unless there are headsets / paid or free whichever"

Cons: "The plane was too small and lots of turbulence"

Pros: "the comfort of the flight was very good."
Cons: "there could have been a little bit bigger portion of food."

Pros: "Excellent!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rudeness of check in staff Disorganized, slow and chaotic screening process for transfer passengers (only two machines for thousands hundred passenger) Near- or semi-illiterate ground staff"

Pros: "Leaving Doha was excellent"
Cons: "Took forever to get out of emigrations, we landed at different terminal and had to get train over. coming back the flight was delayed and it was just nutts trying with everyone trying to get on board."

Cons: "No entertainment"

Cons: "Better choice of movies and classical music"

Pros: "Great helpful flight crew"
Cons: "Checking our bag was a nightmare. All bag check-in was at kiosk which we couldn't use because we had to pay to check our bag. Had to find a desk in another terminal to check bag, then pay an another desk for said checked bag. We saved money by ticketing this way but we almost missed our flight"

Pros: "The crew was amazingly efficient serving food and drink. In the recline position the seat bottom extended which was far more comfortable than simply reclining."
Cons: "The food was mediocre and the selection of movies was very limited."

Cons: "Not missing my connecting flight. Being flown to the correct airport. Not having my luggage go missing."

Pros: "The crew was amazing"

Pros: "Cabin cleanliness isgood"
Cons: "Food is bad"

Pros: "flight was totally fine. Thanks to Swiss hotline, they could find my booking and send me the documents some hours before take off."
Cons: "Kayak has asked for my e-mail and phone number which I provided but never received any order confirmation. Finally it seemed that my flight was never booked. Unluckily Kayak did not forward my contact details to the other brookers in between and definitely not to Swiss. Never Kayak again."

Cons: "Pleasant overall experience"

Pros: "plane and crew were fine. Didn’t use any entertainment."
Cons: "checked baggage fee at airport exorbitant."

Pros: "On time, nice crew"

Pros: "Great cabin crew!"
Cons: "While waiting to board SFO-ZRH flight Swissair personnel walked around and randomly pulled out passengers from line to check luggage dimensions. Since manufacturers adhere to airline baggage standards, no violations were found during checks. This misguided effort only resulted in publicly humiliating Swissair customers. Boarding process was pure pandemonium...this was the first time in recent memory, where all coach passengers were invited to board at the same time! Very inefficient! Crowded seating in coach,with ten passengers sandwiched in across Boeing 767 aircraft. Competing airlines flying identical aircraft have nine across seatings Thin seat cushions cause leg cramps after a few hours."

Pros: "We called for seats 23 hours prior to flight. To our amazement we were assigned to an exit row."
Cons: "It was an easy 2.5 hrs. flight at which a small warm quiche was served. Nice surprise."

Cons: "They lost our bags for the second time in 4 days. Both originating flights were late starting and made for impossible connections! Is Swiss ever on time? Frustrating for sure!"

Pros: "Missed this flight because the first one was late"

Pros: "All very comfortable"

Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Flight staff was attentive and professional."
Cons: "The food was mediocre."

Cons: "Very little space- I thought I was in economy plus having paid extra for seat reservation. When person infrint put seat back it was very difficult to view screen"

Pros: "All went fine and the crew friendly. 12 hours from Switzerland to Sao Paulo is extremely long time to sit in an airplane, but temperature and air were fine and the flight was without delay."

Cons: "Reviewing Business class Nothing memorable at all. An ok dinner after take off followed by a tiny salad 8h later before landing. Quite minimal for such a long flight. The entertainment system needs special mention for its awfulness. The system in Business class would be considered poor even in Econ - small screen, terrible picture quality and a painful, prehistoric interface."

Pros: "Good staff, good boarding, good announcements"
Cons: "The chairs are so small!"

Cons: "30 mins late both ways"

Pros: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer with swiss airline. Amazing crew, boarding, taking off and landing is on time if not a little earlier. However, I was quite disappointed with the enertainment package and food."

Pros: "General attitude of staff"

Pros: "The flight was delayed due to technical problems, and they immediately gave each person 20 Francs towards dinner while in the terminal- which was very nice. The aircraft itself was impeccably clean, even though it had already carried passengers elsewhere earlier in the day. The service was fantastic, and you can never go wrong with free chocolate."

Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "Legroom!!!"

Cons: "Was sent through two redeem security screenings. In Zürich. I doubt this was the airline's fault but it had been a very early morning and it was challenging to remain patient."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Super slow boarding. Long lines at check in"

Cons: "Seats too small. Staff not friendly"

Pros: "Loved the smoked salmon!!"
Cons: "No wifi or tv"

Pros: "good entertainment system"
Cons: "not enough leg room"

Cons: "There was no wifi available, the airline did not have a record of my request for a vegan meal even though I submitted one when I booked my tickets, and they claimed I did not pay for/reserve a seat (even though I had for the flight over, which I booked at the same time as the return flight), so I was stuck in a cramped middle seat for 8 hours trying to write a paper without the internet."

Pros: "Food was excellent and staff was friendy."
Cons: "Wifi was expensive."

Pros: "I liked the service, the food, the entertainement, the super kind personel, would only fly with them :) Thank you!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"

Cons: "Have to take a bus to the plane for boarding. Terrible cold sandwich wrapped in a partly open loose paper bag wrap. Short flight I realize, but that was bad, especially in business class."

Pros: "food and crew were excellent: good meals, free wine."
Cons: "Screen was dim and low-resolution, controls slow and hard to use, no power outlets."

Cons: "The wine"

Pros: "fast boarding, great crew."
Cons: "when is SWISS going to change serving something else rather than this chocolate bread during morning flights?"

Pros: "The food and beverage offerings were very good. The service was excellent."
Cons: "I wish the dinner service flying from JFK to ZH could be made sooner in the trip to allow more lights out time to relax and try to sleep. I wish all the movies had subtitles so I could read rather than have to deal with the head phones and the bad quality sound they produce."

Pros: "Swiss airlines was amazing"
Cons: "They were very nice attentive"

Pros: "Newer plane"
Cons: "I have been flying to Asia on Asian airlines and maybe I have become accustomed to flights and crews that know how to manage a long flight. For example: The crew seemed tentative and untrained. Saw the crew once between the meal at beginning and the meal at the end. I wonder where they can hide for so long on a small plane? Too many announcements by the Captain -- shut up and fly the damn plane! Do you think the crew might replenish the toilet paper on an 8 hour flight? on another note: Seat spacing is adjustable - very close seats Overall--- underwhelmed"

Pros: "The thing I liked most was being offered water routinely. I think I had the options to have a glass of water six times on my flight. For some reason flying really dries me out - so I really appreciated that. The seats were more spacious than the average flights I take. There were lots of movie options. There was more than enough space in the overhead compartment. I"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats/Bed. tray table hard to come out. no one answered the bell. Old movies (same 2 yrs ago). 1st meal OK, not great. Second meals not good at all. They should learn service from Lufthansa/United or Emirates. Very Disappointed."

"This was the worst meal I ever had on a flight. It was undercooked pasta with unflavored tomato paste. Horrible."

Pros: "The crew was attentive"

Cons: "Food- improve the menu, with veggie pasta, there was chicken on the side. For breakfast only on option- scrambled eggs. Not much for vegetarians. Also my flight Istanbul to mumbai, the table on which you keep the food was not aligned, the food tray kept sliding down."

Cons: "Not stealing expensive gifts from my suitcases. That was very disappointing"

Pros: "It is always better when this flight is operated by wide body aircraft, as was the case with A330 this time"

Pros: "All the pieces to have provided an excellent experience were there, but they didn’t come together. It was nice to get some food, and the movie choices were pretty good."
Cons: "Hot, like super hot, in the aircraft. It was horrible."

Cons: "Connecting flight wss unreasonably late and they lied about luggage being loaded onto the flight. One of the bags is completely missing in the system. Waste of time and too much trouble"

Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Seat was moved into a middle seat. I was very uncomfortable for the flight. Crew member granted someone else seat change before mine and i asked first. Very upsetting flight."

Pros: "Friendly staff, good Turkish food, plenty of movie choices, etc. Overall good."
Cons: "Seating space just too small for tall people: elbow room and front distance (awkward eating with long arms in confined space). But This is standard for most airplanes in economy class."

Pros: "I liked there constant passing of water, food ."

Cons: "It took over an hour for Business class bags to come out. Not sure why I paid for business class if they don't know to offload them first in Dubai. Really ruined the first experience with Turkish Air."

Pros: "They offer 3 meals"

Pros: "The service and the cleanse up to the tope"

Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Boarding status changed straight from pre boarding to last call. No AC"

Pros: "Never got the chance to actually try it."
Cons: "I was penalized because of a political issue between USA and Turkey. I couldn't get the visa to travel there, and despite that I couldn't get a refund. I am 1k with united air, and will never include THY in my plans."

Pros: "The check in at Budapest was very helpful."

Pros: "I liked how smooth our flight was, thanks to the flight crew. The entertainment was great and helped pass the time. The flight crew was great and attentive."
Cons: "The food was ok but I wish I knew a way to have vegetarian options. I would have liked some kind of fruit options as well."

Cons: "seats a bit tight"

Pros: "Finally loved that they had a vegan sandwich for me!"
Cons: "We were supposed to land with an hour and a half till my next flight. We landed and they were already boarding my next flight. It was very slow getting off the plane also. Took forever to pull up to be able to let us unboard."

Cons: "Bad cold food. Crowded. Hi"

Pros: "All went well with security and boarding."
Cons: "Rough air and turbulence"

Pros: "Friendly and attentive crew and quality of food and beverages served"
Cons: "Edinburgh boarding gate was changed 3 times and the flight was delayed"

Pros: "The overall experience was good"
Cons: "The food is not so good."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind, but the food was superb (not what I've experienced in the past on other flights). Those gift packs of a toothbrush/slippers/ eye mask was also so wonderful! That eye mask and ear plugs saved me during the flight and during my entire trip"
Cons: "While we took off/ landed softly, I felt that the overall noise that the plane had while in flight was loud, almost too loud to fall asleep without headphones."

Pros: "The quality of their team"

Pros: "Once you got past checkin the flight was fine"
Cons: "The checkin process was horrendous, people waiting for 40-45 minutes even though they were at the front of the line. Repeatedly we saw customers from other lines or no line at all being brought in to take our spots and checkin first with no explanation."

Pros: "Some of the movies, part of the food"
Cons: "Part of the food"

Pros: "Good food, very polite and attentive staff."
Cons: "Seat cushions lack comfort and the legroom is not sufficient for a average size person."

Cons: "Delayed yet again"

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The layover was too long."

Pros: "The flight attendants are very kind unlike the one with United airlines."

Pros: "Boarding procedure was not organized. Boarding of business class and special needs passengers was not prioritized and were boarded along with economy passengers. Good choice of movies."
Cons: "TV screen very far from the seat and could only interact with it via the remote control."

Pros: "Turkish Airlines remains my favorite - boarding process is organized, seats are comfortable, food is good, and crew is friendly and helpful."

Pros: "the crew so courteous and very pleasant"
Cons: "kosher food just ok"

Pros: "Crew demeanor Cleanliness of the cabin Boarding process"
Cons: "Istanbul Airport facilities Food choices Alcohol selection Changing tkt and customer service"

Pros: "Brand new aircraft. Onboard wifi and live TV. Good food. This is one of the routes where Turkish feels need to compete."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding procedures in Istanbul airport."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Loved the entertainment center and options. Loved the frequency of beverage service. The slippers and eye cover for sleeping."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great"

Pros: "Crew were exceptionally warm and pleasant, and made me feel more than welcome onboard."
Cons: "This was one of the worst days of my life, health-wise, so it could be that my observation of the passage of time was somewhat distorted, but Turkish did everything either slowly, or more slowly on this day. First, name two things on a flight line that are wheeled, movable objects. Did you answer bus and plane? Well done. So if both bus AND plane are theoretically mobile, why then must I endure a long walk AND a long bus ride? Boarding was an hour-long event, probably due again to inefficient ground services. I fell asleep and woke up twice before it was over."

Pros: "Great flight/airline, but boarding was a hot mess!"
Cons: "Overall, we had a great flight and will probably fly with the Turkish Airlines again. But boarding was an absolute mess: the "secure" gate area was tiny and way too small to accommodate all the people on the flight, and the temperature in that area of the terminal was blistering hot. Combined with an organization that was messy, let's just say that all of us were REAL happy when we finally boarded the plane."

Cons: "There is nothing I've didn't like"

Pros: "The food and crew service"
Cons: "The leg room is really limited in the economy cabin"

Cons: "First we did not Flight from Cairo to Istanbul because the trouble happened in Turkey I blame to KAYAK because they didn't followed up the situation and did not gave us any information also till now did not know if we flight or no that not good we tried to call the agent many time and they told us all thing is ok no change but when we review with Turkish airline the change the day and reserved in another AIRLINE Company Second : we had a one luggage was damaged from USA to CAIRO we did a report # CAI TK 56650 IN CAIRO AIRPORT but nothing happened and no one call us until now ,Please check and let us know what we can do Ehab Sargyous 409-719-2196"

Pros: "Turkish delight and endless beverage service :)"

Pros: "We travel and used different airlines but Turkish airlines is one of the best."

Pros: "The boarding process was very good."
Cons: "The cabin was too warm."

Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "Boarding in Istanbul. We did not know the gate number until one hour before departure, because there were only 3 monitors in the area that we sat in and there are so many flights, so the flight did not appear on those monitors. Only the one main monitor in in the center of the airport is large enough and there are not seats in that area."

Pros: "Excellent food. Excellent service. Very friendly people."
Cons: "Seating was a little cramped... Like all airlines today."

Pros: "Smooth flight for the most part."
Cons: "Better food choices. Better communication and better boarding procedures by rows or groups."

Cons: "Three hours departure delay from Munich to SFO"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive. Piloting was on time and precise."
Cons: "Space in economy seats is minimal and not comfortable for a 6' 190# guy like me."

Pros: "Clean, quiet and the staff was attentive."
Cons: "The meal was average"

Pros: "Nearly all Flights on time"

Pros: "Got to ride on a Boeing 747 Intercontinental!"
Cons: "It’s hard to give a good review when the first of three flights is an hour late. Made me and my wife run through Frankfurt airport to make my connection. Only made it by 2 minutes. Frankfurt security was super slow and no one cares."

Pros: "Plane was super nice and new and crew was great!"

Cons: "I didn't get the seats I selected during the check-in. An hour after check-in, I received different seats, 10 rows away from the original seats. Too bad!"

Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. If the person in front of you out their seat back it was on your lap and you couldn’t exit your seat. They were narrow and hard as a board, like sitting on a wood fold out chair. We were delayed 2.5 hours and they wouldn’t turn the air up, so we melted."

Cons: "The arm rests on either side of my seat where closed so I had limited mobility in my seat (by closed I mean they didn’t move and had no open space between where your arm sits and the top of the chair)"

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "They cancelled my ticket because I missed the second leg of the flight. They didn’t even offer me an option and told me to find my own flight home. I had to pay $1100 on another airline to fly home tomorrow. I will NEVER use Lufthansa again"

Pros: "The process and the food. Plane was much too crowded and the seats were impossibly tight. Zero leg room."
Cons: "More leg room."

Cons: "I checked bags asking “is the baggage delivery fast at Frankfurt”. “Much taste than Edinburgh” was the reply (Edinburgh is reeeeaaaaallllly slow). Sadly Frankfurt too is slow."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Better selection of entertainment"

Pros: "Staff were very nice. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "App or website didn’t work for check in. Lines at the airport were very long. The flight was over booked so I didn’t get a seat until at the gate. Overall too much hassle. Food options in the plane were horrible for vegans/allergies"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was great. The crew was outstanding!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight late"

Cons: "Online check-in did not work. When I checked in at the airport, I received only a middle seat."

Cons: "We were advised upon check in online that we could check in but if we needed additional carry on items (1 was free) we had to pay a secondary fee. When attempting to do that online we were unable to, even though it showed the price to do so online was cheaper than the price at the gate. They made us fully check these bags once we got there and we had to pay $40 instead of the 15 or so it stated online. We had to be shuttled to the aircraft and had to wait because the first bus was closed by the operator. We had to wait until the second round for the bus to come back. During the flight the pilot did not mention any turbulence however during the entirety of the flight, including leading up to the landing of the plane, we experienced extreme rocking of the plane back and forth ( I’m aware that this does occur during landings while loosing elevation but this was an extreme case of that) and caused my colleague to get motion sickness which neither of us ever get on flights. I am very dissatisfied with this flight and operations of the airline company."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I have been transatlantic for forty years on various carriers. Without a doubt this was my worst flying experience ever."

Pros: "Boarding was late. Pilot said he would makeup the time, but he didn’t. Many passengers were late for their connecting flights.The Airbus was smooth and relatively quiet. Not much room for a 6 foot male. Crew was excellent. The food was just okay. Had to take a shuttle to and from the terminal in Frankfort, which added to the delays. Late boarding from Frankfurt to Stuttgart. Had to wait for the shuttle. Flight was fine."

Pros: "Great price, great airlines, easy flight....I few LAX to Geneva."

Pros: "Comfortable and clean planes. Flight was on time. Free drink!"
Cons: "Check in with checked baggage required an agent. As with almost every flight in Europe, boarding was chaotic, not following zones, priority or people requiring assistance/gate agents did not enforce the boarding rules."

Cons: "I was not allowed to take my cabin bag and was forced to check it in at the checkin counter. The reason mentioned to me was the flight is small. Contradictorily, travellers after me in the queue were allowed to take cabin bags."

Pros: "Our dinner meal was quite good for airline food. After they reset my TV three times, it worked good."
Cons: "The breakfast left a lot to be desired. Leg room was very limited, especially after the person in front of me reclined their seat."

Cons: "The legroom was awful, especially for a nine-hour flight. The video screen kept rebooting."

Pros: "The flight was operated by Lufthansa. There was a training flight attendant who exceeded the expectations."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I found the seats roomy - plenty of leg room. They were very comfortable in the way they leaned back. The food was very good, even though the meal was a simple lunch. The plane was very clean and bright."
Cons: "There was nothing I did not like. In fact, I felt: "This is the way flying aught to be.""

Pros: "This leg of my trip went well and was fairly comfortable. The entertainment was good, and the food was fine."
Cons: "The attendents at the gate in Newark were very unhelpful and unfriendly when I asked them about whether I needed to let someone know that I need a vegetarian meal, since I was not prompted by that question in my booking. They told me I was out of luck and it was too late. Luckly, there was a vegetarian option on the plane, despite their response, but because of this, I bought food at the airport before the flight."

Pros: "crew at the gate really excellent"
Cons: "usual plane handling at Frankfurt - bus to terminal, 60 mins is not enough to wait for bus 15 mins drive 10 then go through security and passport control then go from B to A leaving no time to catch a plane Lufthansa scheduling need to experience what they do to passengers"

Pros: "Crew was more understanding. Placed us to row 18...emergency exit."
Cons: "Checked online from row 21 to 6. Got a new ticket whilst boarding to 25: last row. Explanation...otherwise the plane was not able to go in the air...absolute bullshit. With my weight and of my fellow members better to let us in the front.. Row 6 was given to a miles & more client..."

Pros: "This was still a Lufthansa flight. Meaning there was a lot of leg room, the food was nice and the staff was great."
Cons: "The only thing i did not like is that for such a long flight (5 hours), also being an international flight, i was expecting an entertainment center, but there was none."

Pros: "on time departure"
Cons: "seats from Kiev to Munich were terribly uncomfortable. Food is very bad. After what the luftansa pilots i will never fly Lufthansa ever again. Our outgoing flight was a nightmare and destroyed our short vacation"

Pros: "More leg room than United. Good food."

Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Boarding process was unclear."

Cons: "2 hours late"

Pros: "The lady on the counter was very friendly & helped me to rebook another flight to Frankfurt early next morning."
Cons: "Flighing from Nashville to Washington for 30 minutes & than have to turn around due to weather."

Pros: "Flight was uneventful-no excitement, just the way air travel should be"

Pros: "Crew was nice, doing the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "Awful food, small seats. Exactly same as economy."

Cons: "Check in at Bilbao took over an hour (and I was third in line when I arrived at the airport). Then weather and traffic control strikes caused the flight to leave 2 hours late, and I missed my connecting flight in Frankfurt - stuck there overnight. Lufthansa wasn't to blame for all of that, but it was a very negative travel experience."

Pros: "Crew was fine. Food was ok."
Cons: "Delay, twice - before we boarded and then again after we taxied."

Pros: "Everything was great. Good movies, helpful crew, good food for an airline."

Pros: "no complaints, everything went well."

Cons: "Greek managers who hate Macedonian flyers. On purpose he took our carry-on bags for check-in when I said that I had things that can be broken inside. Both bags were bellow 8 kg and we ware family of 3. Our bags were approved by Luftansa on check-in an we have them as carry-on bags from SFO. Two precious trophies was broken because of this. He did this when he saw our Macedonian passport although first the Luftansa lady said bags are ok. I will never fly with Agean Luftansa ever again."

Pros: "Timely distribution of meals/drinks, uncommonly quick boarding and ... unboarding. I travel with a musical instrument and some airlines want to check it and some even insist on checking it, even though there is always plenty of room. This was a completely full flight and no one even mentioned the possibility of checking it; they put me in an early boarding line and put it in a closet. The way they handle this for myself and the other passenger with an instrument made our day, as well as making boarding smoother forbus and everyone else. Really excellent job on that!"
Cons: "Old televisions with somewhat limited entertainment options. Im tall and every seat in coach is too small for me, but thats the case on every flight ive been on."

Pros: "The flight wasn't completely full so it was comfortable not having anyone sitting next to me. Food was good. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "transfering from one flight to another is a bit of a headache as the gates were very far away. I didn't have a long layover but fortunately my first flight landed a little early. Otherwise there may have been a risk of not making it. Not sure why they would put connecting flights so far apart."

Pros: "- Polite, professional, flexible service by crew - No delays - Quick check in - Free of charge alcohol - Free coffee & newspaper at Munich Airport (Lufthansa)"
Cons: "- No entertainment touchscreen but on a short flight is a understanable"

Cons: "Food was not that good"

Cons: "Entertainment seems like you have to pay for even basics. If you need to charge for movies domestically, fine, but even basic news or so timed out. Seats are tight (legroom). I am 6'2" and knees were against seat in front of me."

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. Plane interior was in new condition, including electronic window shade tinting."
Cons: "Staff was not particularly warm or attentive. Was never offered more to drink, and after asking for more wine was ignored."

Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"

Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"

Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"

Pros: "Staff were professional and polite."

No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."

Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."

Cons: "Lost a single baggage item, a car seat. Critical for us to leave the airport, and delayed us for over an hour upon arrival. Gave us a loaner car seat that barely fit our child."

Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Moved me up front in the plane so I could make my connection."
Cons: "Not having to walk outside in Edinbur4gh to board the flight."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."

Cons: "Lost all our bags so couldn’t ski"

Pros: "Lovely crew, very helpful"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"
Cons: "As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights."

Pros: "Very pleased with KLM - efficiency all round and especially the baggage handling at Schipol swhere I had 20 minutes to transfer and my baggage came back with me to the UK which is no mean feat given the hustle and bustle of such a large airport"

Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."

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: "Last year I flew Lufthansa which was my worst experience flying ever. I thought the new standard was so low I would never fly to Europe again. I had heard KLM was good but I felt this was as good as could be expected actually much better. The food was even good."
Cons: "I would have to dream something up."

Pros: "Was happy to pay extra 45.5 pounds for laugages which was hidden"
Cons: "Not happy to pay extra money for my case"

Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... 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!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."

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

Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
