Airline reviews

Pros: "I loved that even during a pandemic, alcohol in glassware and full meals were served in business class (unlike other airlines, so I avoided them). The lighting looked nice, the crew was professional and attentive, and the bathroom was well maintained. The blanket and pillow were comfy as well. I like the 1-2-1 layout in business class, which leaves window seats with a lot of windows and privacy."
Cons: "The headphones were not the most comfortable, sometimes the passenger moving around behind you will shake your seat too, and before take-off the plane was quite hot. Also a lot of the food choices I wanted were gone already but not a big deal as there were many choices."

Cons: "During covid pandemic they put no efforts to show the aircraft clean or maintained the distance between passengers"

Pros: "p"

Cons: "i am trying to obtain a refund, as she was not able to make the flight - held on phone for over 2 hrs on 2 separate occasions"

Pros: "Everything was excellent accept the entertainment."
Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "Friendly crew and delicious snacks. Comfortable chairs."
Cons: "Gate was change and no announcement was made. Could have miss might flight if I didn’t ask someone 30 minutes before boarding. Also could do a little better with the entertainment part. All the channels were in Portuguese. I understand it’s a Brazilian airline but you need to consider your foreign customers. Have some English Channels."

Pros: "extremely attentive crew. courtesy necessaire pack. very clean plane."

Pros: "extremely gracious crew. very clean plane. courtesy necessaire pack."
Cons: "more recent movies options"

Pros: "Very clean airplane and excellent crew"

Pros: "2 seats, not 3, in this part of Economy"
Cons: "The bag check price info on the website was completely wrong... At the airport, they asked for USD 100, not USD 30 as the website indicated. Ended up lugging the (heavy) cabin size bag..."

Pros: "Great experience overall"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "crew was kind."
Cons: "We almost crashed into other planes on the runway while trying to land. The runway was full/ blocked. We had to accelerate suddenly and ascend back into the clouds. Very bumpy and scary. Pilotes should know runway status in advance of descent."

Pros: "Azul is always amazing in terms of service!"
Cons: "The price!"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "super punctual"

Pros: "free-snack is good"
Cons: "non-brazirian customer can pay service fee (i.e. seat-selection,baggage) on Azul websaite."

Cons: "They cheat on us about the place of the seats. Saying was a good place but giving us the worse seats in the plane - just after bathroom where it doesn’t recline and impossible to sleep due traffic"

Pros: "We got all of our bags! No lines. Smooth sailing"

Cons: "Pontualidade"

Pros: "Crew was very good, one crew member took time to make me coffee as I entered the plane"
Cons: "The food could have been better, maybe a bit more legroom. But definitely would like better food. The spaghetti and meatballs were good dinner, but I did not like the vegatables. I did, however, like the pudim."

Cons: "I was charged for luggage and I wasn’t given the option to purchase luggage while booking the flight"

Cons: "More recent movies on board"

Cons: "Everything was good."

Pros: "Everything was very good, mainly when compared to other airlines: the boarding, the condition of the plain, the comfort, entertainment and food."
Cons: "It is hard to say... But I had a problem with gate information on my first leg. This could have been better handled."

Pros: "Azule Airlines incorrectly charged me 60 Rais for my first bag of 23 kg. When I showed them documentation of my connecting flights, they reversed the charges."
Cons: "Check in using the online system was impossible, even with helpdesk staff assistance."

Pros: "Flight on tine"

Cons: "Very disappointed that there were only junk food options on the snacks served. Same goes for the drinks. And no option to buy anything healthy either. Arrived hungry at 1:20am!"

Pros: "Loved all the support and attention from the crew"

Pros: "The tickets were a good price, movie selection was excellent, and the staff was really friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The leg room was terrible. I'm a tall American and I could barely fit in the seat, let alone fall asleep in a 9 hour hour flight. Also, there were no plugs that would work for an American outlet."

Pros: "There's actually footrests that fold out like a lawn chair in economy and there's lots of leg room so you can actually put your legs up and sleep. First time I ACTUALLY slept on a long haul flight. Chairs seemed to be made of soft leather or some other super comfy material. Puts the older US-based planes to absolute shame. Super soft fluffy blankets, the flight attendants were amazing, courteous, hospitable, the food and drinks were awesome, loved the movies. 10/10 would fly again."
Cons: "T H E R E I S N O T H I N G I D I D N T L I K E B U T I H A V E T O P U T S O M E T H I N G H E R E"

Pros: "The staff"

Pros: "Business accommodations were great and the staff was fantastic"

Pros: "Everything was really nice"

Cons: "O sistema de entretenimento não estava funcionando e eu não tinha conhecimento do AzulPlay. O voo é longo e é vendido como tendo Sky a bordo, mas não tem. Havia recebido 3 e-mails da Azul nos dias anteriores a viagem e em nenhum o Azul Play foi citado."

Pros: "friendly staff."
Cons: "3hour delay. terrible seats with no front pockets! worst landing i've ever experienced in 25yrs of flying. wouldn't fly Azul again unless I have no choice."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Organization for embarking was a little messy."

Pros: "Easy flight!"

Cons: "The arrogant employees at Gov. Valadares didnt tell me they were sending me to another airport making me miss my conection flight in the process. This information was disclosed only after I asked if the flight was on time because I had a international flight to catch at my final destination Sao Paulo - GRU. Instead of helping and apologizing for the hassle, the attendant said that I had to pay for my carry-on (that was 10kg) because I had another hand bag with my laptop in it. I said that I would not pay, and that Azul should return me money first for not delivering the service I purchase - which was the flight from Governador Valadares, MG to Sao Paulo, SP (with a quick stop in Belo Horizonte, MG). Instead they were making me miss my international flight, and besides not taking any responsibility for it, this woman is telling me that I had to pay for a carry on?!? I was mesmirized by the lack of sense of this flight attendant. After telling me that I was going to get in Sao Paulo at 9pm instead of 5pm, and that I would have to run to get a bus to another terminal and hopefully make it to my international flight that was at 10:20pm, she insisted I’d pay. I told her that if she could get me to my destination at 5pm maybe I wouldn’t mind paying, but since that wasn’t the case, and I’d have to run to try to catch another flight because of Azul Airlines, that she should really think about it and let it go, and let me go with my bag as a carry on. She gave me the ticket, and as I grabbed my bag and went towards the bus, she threatened me, saying that in Ipatinga and in Belo Horizonte (my first conection flight) they would not allow me on the plane with the carry on. Since the non-sense continued I just took her as a mentally disable person, and ignored her threat. A full bus and 2 vans headed to Ipatinga (100km away in a dangerous highway), packing the flight there, really making me think that this non-sense was just a way Azul Airlines figured out to save money in fuel. The flight was completely full, the AC not working properly, and with the heat and humidity people were smelly. It was absolutely awful. The flight attendants in Ipatinga (way nicer than the ones in Gov. Valadares), distributed water to the passengers that looked like they were about to faint, the ones sweating profusely, the elderly and the kids. By the way, the carry on bag was not an issue at the other airports. Once in Belo Horizonte I noticed that my original Azul flight from Belo Horizonte to Sao Paulo at 3:30pm as 1 hour and 15 minutes LATE. I run to the gate and explained what happened and after crying out loud was able to convince the Azul attendants to let me in on that flight so I wouldn’t miss my international flight. They made me wait until last minute but I cried: this is the flight I had a ticket for. It’s only fair you let me in! So they did. And I made my other flight. But not before I got upset, had a headache, stomach ache and felt demoralized by Azul staff."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Azul had a mechanical problem with the plane. It took them 6h to fix it. They made us wait for 6h which made mmost of the people lose their connection flight but azul voided to help anyone! Said that they couldnt be responsible if you lost your connection because My connection flight wasnt with them! I had the worse6h of waiting and trying to have someone helping me. All of Azul’s staff are incompetent laZy workers!"

Pros: "Allí right and on time"
Cons: "Allí good"

Pros: "Easy, polite, helpful. First flight with them was in winter 2012. Representatives went out of their way to make sure we didn't miss our connecting flight. Recent experiences just as good, including call center in USA."
Cons: "Free inflight entertainment limited."

Pros: "Friendly, and kind service starting from registration and up to desimbarkation."
Cons: "Announcement should be given on English as well!"

Pros: "Check in, boarding, flight attendence, food, comfort inside the cabin, all very good"
Cons: "Overall very satisfied"

Pros: "Gate management, boarding, flight time and amenities were all superb. Their snacks really are as good as advertised."

Pros: "Crew"

Pros: "Staff was very friendly and loved the food."
Cons: "For economy class, nothing."

Pros: "Crew as usual very kind"
Cons: "They put me on stand by because flight was overbooked"

Pros: "The seats were good for a short flight, which this was. No complaints."

Pros: "The seats aren’t the greatest"
Cons: "Just the seats"

Pros: "Nice cabin, clean . Friendly crew"

Cons: "Food selection was a bit short"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Food was horribly salty. I got the middle seat between 2 men. One of the attendant s was taunting most of the people who asked him for anything."

Pros: "Clean airplane and toilets Many entertainment choice No turbulence"
Cons: "3 separate passport control checks Last minute gate number announcement Very long flight 9.5 hours Tight seat room"

Pros: "There were good entertainment options though I didn’t use them"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2.5 hours, during which we had boarded but were told we could not leave our seats even for the bathroom. We were offered a cup of water once during this delay which is inexcusable. (We were also woken up to serve dinner at 1am so that was incredibly inconvenient for an overnight flight) On top of that, I, as well as many others missed our connecting flight. Personally I missed my connection by 20 minutes, which seems a reasonable amount of time to hold a connecting flight with so many people from our flight on that next one. In missing by only 20 minutes, we have lost an entire day of our trip and are spending 9! hours in the airport today. There was no communication between flights clearly. Despite there being an earlier flight we could’ve been placed on after missing our connection - we did not get booked on this flight. I asked why and they just randomly placed people on random flights with no regard for when we showed at the desk. In this scenario, a first come first serve would have alleviated an absolutely awful experience. I will never fly Swiss Air again and will urge people I know to not fly this airline. The experience was extremely frustrating, the best response from an employee was “that’s all I can do for you” and I wish it on no one."

Pros: "I had a wonderful experience the whole way through."
Cons: "The TV froze and stopped working for me. Thankfully it was the last thirty minutes of my flight. Mine was the only that appeared to be broken."

Pros: "The length of the flight"
Cons: "3 of our 5 suitcases were out of luck to make it.. they damaged our 2 new luggages and the third one.. we only realized at home... now I have to deal with that too so I will be with Swiss on my mind for a while.. never again!!!"

Pros: "The line for screening for initial security at Ben Gurion was ridiculously long. Almost one hour in line before we even could be interviewed."
Cons: "Boarding and in-flight experience were excellent."

Pros: "choice of movies were very bad"

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."

Pros: "Stewards were friendly; snacks were good"
Cons: "Nothing"

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."

Cons: "They rebooked me on a later flight this same day. This flight to Geneva (change of airports) was late and the flight to Vienna took off with no passengers from our flight, after we were told it would wait. ' I paid for premium seats and did not get rebooked for the same. I am sitting in the Geneva airport for 7 and 1/2 hours, losing my meetings in Vienna. I never expected such poor service from Swissair."

Pros: "I bought 2 tikets from Chicago to oscow and back for me and for my son. I live in USA, son lived in Russia but he received immigration visa and I had plan fly to USA with him. From Chicago I used my ticket and say SWISS staff what my son will have trip only from Moscow. I paid for 2 tickets around $1700. Today when we should have trip back to USA, SWISS company said what ticket for my son do not exsist. And I spent for new ticket 220000 rubles about $3600. Nobody in SWISS company do not said me what my tocket for son canceled. I am shoked !!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "If I were a small person I would have been almost comfortable the seats were so narrow with no leg room so that trying to find a place for myself was laughable, unfortunately not the funny laughable. There is not a chance that I will ever again book an international flight on Swiss. I hope you share this with the airline."

Pros: "Food was better than some other long-haul flights I’ve been on. Plane fairly clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment options more limited than Delta or Virgin, who I’ve usually flown intercontinental. Boarding in Zurich was a mess. No order to it and they didn’t start boarding until 20 minutes before takeoff. Nearly every intercontinental flight I’ve taken needs closed to 45-60 minutes to do a full board. Sure we made up the time in the air but the process to get on the plane was frustrating."

Pros: "good entertainment system, modern aircraft , friendly and competent crew"

Pros: "Even a short flight (1 hr 10 minutes) serves a good sandwich for lunch, drinks, and excellent chocolates to top it off."

Pros: "Just like everything else the Swiss do, our Swiss air flight was like a well oiled machine. Very friendly crew, very good meals, lots of creatures comforts; blankets, pillows, headphones, warm washcloths in the morning. Great overall experience."
Cons: "The seat room is every bit as tight as any other airline, so if you're tall, and flying an overnight, upgrading to a seat with leg room might be worth the extra cost. Select your roomy seat early - they go fast!"

Pros: "Very little legroom, food was excellent"

Pros: "Or print out a boarding pass. Much unlike our experience with Lufthansa flying from Boston through Frankfurt to Geneva."
Cons: "See sbove"

Pros: "Flight was fine. The attendants on board were friendly and efficient. The food was nice though there wasn't much variety in drinks."
Cons: "It was awful getting boarding passes and paying for check in luggage in Venice. I assumed we couldn't check in early online much like the earlier Lufthansa flight. Then when we got to the airport there were long lines to check in and no machines to self check in. When we finally got to the front of the line the woman said we had to pay for our checked baggage elsewhere and then come back for the boarding passes. Unheard of elsewhere. The people in the office where you pay for checked baggage took their time and chatted and had no sense of urgency. The first woman we spoke to apparently filled out the form incorrectly. We had to rush to get to the plane and we barely made it through long security lines. We almost missed the plane due to the lack of early information and check in, the cumbersome payment process, etc. It was the worst check in process ever."

Pros: "See above. Zurich is a very easy airport and even though our layover was short we never felt rushed or stressed."

Pros: "When we landed"
Cons: "Everything else..."

Pros: "The new aircraft"
Cons: "Lavatory wasn't clean enough"

Pros: "A+."

Pros: "Best services."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and very attentive. The food was surprisingly good. I would definitely try to fly SWISS again."
Cons: "Not a big deal, but I missed the vents above the seats."

Cons: "I would have like an announcement to let me know what times food will be served. I woke up just as the crew had passed my row for breakfast and then couldn't get the attention of the lady to serve me breakfast. A vegan option for the menu would be excellent. The leg room on the plane was also very reduced for an 11 hour flight. I wish I would have been offered to pay an additional amount and upgrade to the business class. This option was never offered to me at check-in."

Pros: "The veggie food option was delicious. The calzone for breakfast was miserable. The restrooms were kept clean and well-stocked. Flight delay to wait for incoming passengers resulted in others missing their connections in SF."

Pros: "Very comfortable seats for coach, good service."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "I missed a collecting flight due to weather and the airline refused to rebook my flight."

Pros: "The crew was excellent. The food was pretty good and service was frequent even in economy."
Cons: "The seats are too close to each other. The couple in front of use reclined the entire flight and they were nearly in our laps. We could not get in and out of our seats to stretch. The flight attendant needed to ask them to sit up during meals so that we could eat."

Pros: "I was supposed to visit my father who was just put in a nursing home for a few days and the day of my flight I received an email from Swiss that they had rebooked me for the next day! So frustrating! The trip would have gotten so short that it wasn't worth it so I had to reschedule it 6 weeks out. It got my dad really upset! Thank god his health is stable at the moment."

Pros: "The flights were Just as schedule, the arrival time was even earlier than planned. The crew is always available and tries to make the flight as comfortable as it can be. The food is brilliant in comparison to other airlines. To sum up, always a good choice. * this is my 8th flight with Swiss."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The service , the hospitality and kindness"

Pros: "I am a big guy but the interior of this plane is laid out for more room than commuter flights are in the States. The window seats sit further off the wall so there is room for my shoulders to not be forced into the wall."

Pros: "I got business class upgrade, so everything was pretty much awesome. Also, Swiss Air gives you a fun little bag as a souvenir."

Cons: "Through no fault of the airline, there was a strong thunderstorm that delayed our flight. Little information was provided about the situation. It was obvious that we could not fly in the storm, but we were not informed about the likely departure time. The reason I gave a poor ranking is that my suitcase/pack must have been left out in the downpour on the top of the pile so all of my clothes were extremely wet when I reached Boston. The bag itself was wet so it was not a case of something leaking in the bag. I have had to wash all of the clothes and iron them."

Pros: "Quick flight, nice crew"
Cons: "Snack options"

Cons: "Unfortunately I didn't get my luggages in Florence. They arrived the day after."

Pros: "The straff is very nice. this made the flight a positive for me"
Cons: "i work with tech stuff and i couldnt find the switch for english on the entertainment system, or how to turn it off so the glow would bother me."

Pros: "Good frequent food / beverage service."
Cons: "Bathrooms were pretty soiled - may have just been seen between having been noticed by staff."

Cons: "Considering that we’re in the middle of a pandemic no LH ground staff at Heathrow Airport was leading by example wearing protective equipment such as mask or gloves. Further, I found it inexplicably that almost every seat was taken on this flight. If LH knows that the flight is booked close to capacity I would have expected they do their part and due diligence by swapping to a bigger aircraft to help protect people and their customers, it’s not that they wouldn’t have other aircrafts grounded and ready to go... A reduced beverage service is all you can do, really? LH - very disappointing once again"

Pros: "Didn’t like anything. Mediocre all round."
Cons: "Disembarkation took 40 mins due to which most passengers struggled to catch connecting flights. Very poor service by Lufthansa to help delayed passengers."

Pros: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and good"

Pros: "Nothing at all, whole experience was incredibly stressful"
Cons: "The transfer was awful. Long line for the frankly bizarre security check despite never leaving the terminal, incredibly rude staff at Frankfurt airport, all wearing may we help badges, so kind of answered their own question. Check in staff once we had sprinted th length of the terminal very rude"

Pros: "Crew very helpful."
Cons: "Both flights late. Food was worthy rather than tasty. Seats small. Too much plastic - why not use non plastic cups. Sexist safety card."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "More varieties of whisky on board"

Cons: "The entertainment system broke down completely on the whole plane and the crew was sort of grumpy."

Pros: "on time."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Staff were ok, did all they could"
Cons: "Not enough information especially for people with connecting flights"

Pros: "Everything was on time and efficient."

Pros: "not much"
Cons: "The worst food I have ever had the displeasure of having in my mouth. The staff kept bumping into me and therefore did not sleep at all."

Pros: "Despite the short flight we were still given food and as always I love airline food. Free alcohol is always a bonus as well! Nice crew and timely take offs and landings. Could bring two hand luggage (backpack and suitcase) which I like even though I didn't have to pay extra!"
Cons: "No negatives."

Pros: "Very explanatory clear and responsive. There was a short delay they kept us informed clearly and responsibly. Excellent flight and superb performance. Very polite and helpful."

Cons: "Flight from Heathrow to Frankfurt delayed, when we arrived we had no chance of making our connecting flight to Split yet no one told us. No one at the gate which didn’t say final call (or on any of the boards) or anyone calling us over the tannoy at any point. Super rude “flight manager” A. Turini burst out laughing when we told him our situation and when I asked why he said “Well would it make you happier if I cry instead?” So unprofessional."

Pros: "The ground staff in Heathrow was helpful. They happily swapped me onto an earlier flight to Munich after I spotted delays out of Munich, allowing me ample time to connect in Munich airport"
Cons: "Lufthansa's narrowbodies have one of the most uncomfortable seats in the sky. These slimline seats are built with a central beam running vertically along the midline of the seat, making it very uncomfortable with your spine."

Pros: "Very friendly atmosphere at boarding gate & helpful crew on journey, plus surprisingly good food foe economy class made for positive feel to this trip. Add to it the fact I caught a movie I'd missed seeing at cinema plus even getting a few hours sleep, this was probably one of my better long haul flights in recent times."

Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "No entertainment food Horrible"

Pros: "I like everything about Lufthansa in terms of quality and service"
Cons: "Punctuality. I fly lufthansa twice a week and I have yet to fly on time. There are always a delay."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Almost everything"

Cons: "Cancelled flight and transferring me on turkish airlines again the flight was delayed over three hours.,obviously we have missed our connection flight to Beirut and now waiting in front the hotel desk because the first flight to Beirut is 12:25 pm , I have lost 2 days from my holiday,I'm very tired and upset, I will never use kayak ever again and I will tell all my friends and family to avoid it."

Cons: "The flight was delayed . When we arrived in Frankfurt, there was a quie of 200m . After waiting 10 minutes, they asked us to go to other passport control . We had to walk onother 10 minutes to get there ."

Cons: "Not entertainment at all"

Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, take off delayed by just over an hour but the Crew were exceptional with providing updates and bringing around refreshments whilst we waited."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable but outside that not much I can fault the airline for."

Pros: "Made up most of the time. Latrobe leaving due to queue."
Cons: "That I did not know in advance there was a snack. Would have odered vegan as it was had nothing."

Cons: "At the gates they said that nobody could bring more than one piece of carry-on items Dash completely catching Everyone by surprise. They took a backpack from me, and it has now been lost."

Cons: "It took ages to go through the security check, although I have mentioned that I have a flight connection that is due to leave nobody gave a s..t, so I missed my flight. Now I’m waiting at the airport"

Cons: "Cancelled then delayed then had to stay in Frankfurt and was a day late"

Pros: "The counter staff in Heathrow was great"

Pros: "The crew were very helpful and friendly"

Cons: "Very very long walk plus train to baggage reclaim at Munich"

Pros: "Everything was perfect ... pilots are so good and professional..!!)"

Cons: "Poor food on first leg. Sat by a man who was allowed to have 7 cans of beer. On second leg of journey I was willing to pay for food. The best choice for anyone trying to eat a healthy diet was pot noodles. Air Canada get 2 stars. Return journey on United gets 4stars."

Pros: "It’s nice that Lufthansa still gives food onboard"
Cons: "My Lufthansa flight left with 1hour delay"

Pros: "Smooth process. Regular updates."
Cons: "Late departure."

Cons: "Slim seats very uncomfortable and legroom too little"

Pros: "The food and drinks was very good."
Cons: "The flight was late."

Pros: "Easy check-in and helpful staff. I would absolutely fly with Lufthansa again"

Cons: "The plane lands a considerable distance from the airport, you walk across the tarmac in the rain to a bus, and then the bus ride is almost 15 minutes. I expect Lufthansa to have a better berth at Frankfurt."

Pros: "Very nice staff at the gate and awesome media selection on the plane."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Free refreshments. Funny cabin crew!"
Cons: "There was very confusing and contradictory information on what you can take with you on top of your cabin luggage. e.g. Can you or can you not take a small shoulder bag with you."

Pros: "Nie odbyl size powodu opuznienia samolotu z Chicago do Londynu"

Pros: "Flights were cancelled that day due to a storm, but Lufthansa were able to fly an empty aircraft from Rome to fly us from London to Frankfurt. Despite the circumstances, Lufthansa were able to still offer catering. Thank you for your cimmitment."
Cons: "Lufthansa in general could invest a little more in the food they serve. Lufthansa's domestic and inter European flights are never a culinary highlight. :-("

Cons: "Food can be better"

Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"

Cons: "I paid for the preferred seat .and i found that people beside me didnt pay anything when i asked them ,"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."

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

Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful (our flight was 2h late so they put us on the one before in business class for us not to miss our connection)"
Cons: "A lot of delays, on both flights. We spent twice as much time waiting than flying."

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

Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"

Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."

Cons: "The movie selection did not seem extremely varied."

Pros: "Wifi on Board"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"

Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My check in luggage was in very bad condition when I receive it. My clothes were all wet and they got bab by each other’s colour. Many clothes are not in a condition to wear now. Those were expensive and I had a big loss because of that."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Good information and helpfil boarding."
Cons: "Has to wait in confined area fir nearly 2 hrs before boarding. No restroom or refreshments within that area."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"

Cons: "Bag was lost"

Pros: "In flight food was enjoyable"

Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."

Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"

Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"

Pros: "Good multi media access and content"

Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"

Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."

Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."

Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour which meant I missed by train at Southampton by 10 minutes and subsequent bus connect home. Next bus would have been 2 hours later so 45 minute walk home from train station. Didn't bother with food offering, put off by that supplied from Hannover to Schiphol."

Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"

Pros: "Staff at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Entretenimento"

Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. The waiting area was filled with people milling around, trying to find their line."

Cons: "Would not let us board with 25 minutes prior to departure Because they lock their doors 35 minutes prior"

Pros: "The free middle seat because the flight was not full."
Cons: "Bigger glass for wine"

Pros: "Crew was helpful, worked to make the passengers feel comfortable."
Cons: "The connection didn’t allow for enough time so I missed my connecting flight. LATAM doesn’t recognize PreCheck, even though US airports do offer that but without the printout boarding pass passengers can’t take advantage of the shorter lines. LATAM also charged for both flights to check baggage instead of charging once for the whole trip."

Cons: "Everything!"

Cons: "Check-in was terrible, the agent checked our suitcase and then found out that we can't take the flight and the suitcase was gone. After waiting 3 hours at Medellin the suitcase was still not found. We left , besides we missed half of our vacation day, and after calling a lot we got the suitcase back in Guatapé. So much trouble for us because the agent was not able to do the check-in properly."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 7 hours"

Pros: "The cleanliness of the aircraft and the staff professionalism"
Cons: "No"

Cons: "Little late boarding and leaving. No explanation"

Pros: "the entertainment console's on the seat backs are modern and have a lot of content."
Cons: "LATAM made me pour out all the water at the gate that I purchased on the concourse after security. they also made me throw away my food. I am very displeased that I had to throw out $15+ dollars of food and drink and that I had zero water when getting on an 11 hour flight. that's outrageous."

Pros: "Timely, safe 3-hour flight from Punta Arenas, Patagonia, to Santiago, the capital of Chile. Fine leather seats, interesting in-flight magazine, OK seat recline and pitch. Great in-flight entertainment for as long as it was available. You can watch or listen to for free on your smartphone, tablet or laptop is a great selection of movies, TV series and music."
Cons: "The flight entertainment abruptly ended about 45 minutes before landing. The flight attendant told me they had to reset it because it was not working properly (it was fine as far as I could tell). However, it was not available for the rest of the flight."

Pros: "Se retrasaron varios vuelos, aeropuerto abarrotado y sin espacio. No comentan nada a Los pasajeros, no ofrecen in vaso con agua, se retrasaron en la salida"

Pros: "Gate crew was very nice and efficient"

Pros: "Food, movie selection was better than the last flight."
Cons: "The system in Lima did not update to show what gate the Santiago flight left so a lot of people on our connection missed the next flight! We had to stay 6 hours longer in the airport.

Ended up breathing the most disgusting smell for hours, arrived to destination with an upside down stomach and nausea."

Pros: "The service"
