Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "New Istanbul airport requires kilometres to walk and then take a super crowded bus. Insane"
Pros: "The Food was good."
Cons: "We had a very uncomfortable flight. A passenger right behind us was screaming all through the flight. We need to be refunded part of the ticket cos it was horrible."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Boarding was unnecessarily chaotic."
Cons: "Crew was not helpful at all, didn’t even bother to come when asked for help"
Pros: "Food and plane"

Cons: "My luggage was lost during transit even thout it was a 1h 50 minute layover."
Cons: "The online check in wasn’t possible so I wasn’t able to choose my seat."
Pros: "TK Lounge in Istanbul"
Cons: "Business Class boarding process is not well setup. I expect that If you are paying significantly more for a business class, you would have priority boarding at least ... this didn't happen. We were asked to be there at the gate 1 hr before the flight of which 40 mins were spent just waiting in a room packed with people."
Pros: "The service of the crew was exceptional"
Cons: "Very poor boarding conditions. The board only said "proceed to gate". Once at the gate, there was not one single boarding announcement. People next to the representatives started to get up and everyone else followed."
Cons: "The seats. You are real greedy."
Pros: "The flight itself was ok."
Cons: "These comments probably reflect the Tbilisi ground service crew rather than the airline, but I cannot be certain. We left the departure gate 30 minutes later than scheduled, after arriving at 0445 am. then we loaded a bus full of people packed together, the bus went 50 meters and stopped. We then sat there, with no air conditioning, no information, for 45 additional minutes. It was extremely uncomfortable. Finally drove another 50 meters to the airplane, and waited some more before finally boarding. Once on board there was another delay of some 20 minutes before we could taxi. All of this meant we arrived quite late in Istanbul and missed all connections."
Pros: "Inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding process did not respect travel privileges. Business and Star Alliance Gold members were shuttled en Mase with all other travelers. Process should be respected regardless of the destination."
Pros: "Smooth and easy, pleasant staff and service flight."
Pros: "The Entertainment system was best I have seen."
Cons: "Flight attendants had crappy attitude, hardly spoke English, spilled a drink on my lap and only managed a sorry when I spoke up."
Pros: "Excellent respect of timing : check in , take off and landing and delivery of luggage. Crew professional and quicly available Connecting flight was possible thanks to respect of time. I have tried number of companies I can tell Turkish airline is committed to time and staff are well organised and professional."

Cons: "Service was terrible, crew was rude. Flight was delayed 2 hours leaving Tel Aviv and my luggage was not here when we arrived. They let us wait two hours for luggage before telling us it wasn't going to make it in. Frustrated and disappointed! Ground security in Turkey was rude and took my sons skate board which we had flown to Israel with and back to turkey, then they told us it couldn't come with us to miami although we flew Turkish both directions with no problem. In the end gate staff went and rescued his skate board from security as he got to the flight crying his little eyes out. Communication was terrible and staff was rude!"
Pros: "food, entertainment"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "I landed SAW airport with another operator. Turkish airlines should have simply waited for me as my reservation with them starts in SAW airport. My previous operator sent my luggage to SAW as final destination, which means i have to cross passport control, collect my luggage and start the check-in process; given the time window between the flights, that was simply impossible. TURKISH AIRLINE's ground staff - transit team of SAW airport - Made it happen! I was requested just to wait, then they confirmed transferring the luggage and gave me respective tags! landed CDG - Paris to find my bag safe and sound :)"
Pros: "Went smoothly!"

Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "I love the comfort and hospitality offered by the Turkish"
Pros: "no individual tv screens. only 1 container of orange juice. BUT the stewards was really lovely when I told her I was allergic and made me a plate of fruit."
Cons: "WOULD NOT TAKE TURKISH AIRLINES AGAIN IF MY LIFE DEPENDED ON IT. I took a flight from JFK to Tel Aviv, with a a layover in Istanbul. Turkish delayed my first flight by 2 hours, which caused me to miss my layover, and the next flight from Istanbul to Tel Aviv was not until the next day. They made me pay for a visa to get into Istanbul, took me to a hotel about 30 minutes from the airport, and then did not serve me any food for dinner. The Istanbul airport was a mess, the flight attendants and everyone working for the airline was EXTREMELY UNHELPFUL. Then on the return flight, they changed the time of my flight at the last minute, which caused me to almost miss it. On top of that, they lost my baggage and took a week to get it back. DO NOT EVER FLY TURKISH, YOU WILL REGRET IT."
Pros: "The fares were cheap and there was no mistaking we were in economy class: the seats were relatively uncomfortable, and the cabin seemed a bit out-of-date. BUT: for being economy class, legroom seemed above average. The food service was amazing, and cabin crew was incredibly attentive and friendly. I will absolutely look to fly Turkish Air in the future!"
Cons: "The worst part of the trip: other passengers. Some of them were pretty pushy and aggressive, while others had somewhat dubious standards of personal hygiene."
Pros: "A three hour flight and they gave us a very nice meal and beverage selection. Never happen in the U.S. unless you are flying first class, and even then they wouldn't exceed Turkish Airlines. When did you last have metal eating utensils with your meal..... if you even got a meal. Plus multi channel seat back entertainment on a three hour flight. I wish the U.S. would open domestic markets to foreign carriers."
Cons: "Really tight seats. Almost impossible to eat your meal."
Cons: "I was between two large men and couldn’t sit all the back in my seat. Eating was a real trick!"
Cons: "We were delayed thirty minutes due to slow service. Zero entertainment and only a brownie for a snack"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, adequate legroom; clean aircraft, polite and professional crew."
Cons: "Super crowded gate -- but that's more the CDG problem than Norwegian's one."
Pros: "The crew on-board was nicer this time"
Cons: "Had wait in line for more than 1.5 hours to check in (no self-serve kiosk) and then conform to the 10kg carry-on (both backpack and suitcase) rule which didn't happen on the first flight. The staff are rude and unhelpful and the whole process of dealing with Norwegian is confusing."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "I’d honestly pay more for childless flights"
Cons: "Staging at the gate was chaotic and disorganized. The passengers formed a big mob since there were no instructions for where to form lines for an organized boarding. Passengers could not hear boarding instructions from the front desk."
Cons: "Improving customer service during delay but overall good"
Pros: "Brand new very nice/comfortable planes. Great routes and flight departure/arrive times. Really great value."
Cons: "They’re a budget airline so they nickel and dime you for food and beverage. They are not a member of “sky team” so if they have a flight delay or cancellation they will not book you on another airline."
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful."
Cons: "You take a bus to reach the plane and the seats are uncomfortable without any entertainment systems. Thankfully the flight was only 1.5 hours."
Pros: "Service and the crewe was very kind"
Cons: "There was no entertainment a lite. Crowded the seat but I understand as it was a smalll airplane."
Cons: "Food could be improved."
Pros: "The food was good was good"
Cons: "The entertainment was poor the movies selection was poor"
Pros: "Quick, efficient, relaxing."
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc."
Pros: "Staff was great."
Cons: "I missed a hot moist towel to refresh my face before I got off of the plane after an 8-hour flight."
Pros: "Crew were professional and friendly"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. There was a terrible backlog in Security at Frankfurt Airport. This is not Lufthansa's fault but considering how important Frankfurt is, you would think the airlines would say something. The flight was late. There were no proper queues for boarding. Everone was mixed up, business, gold card, economy, and only one person doing the chekcing of boarding passes. It was not the best process."
Cons: "Our flight was 9 hours late. We were given no notice of this until we arrived at the gate. it took an hour if holding before we could reach customer service. Customer service at our arrival gate was extremely slow. Baggage claim closed before my daughter’s luggage was released and it was lost until the next day. Our connecting flight was booked incorrectly do we had to spend the night in Frankfurt. Our 13 hour flight took 29 hours. The food was awful."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late in departing from Frankfurt."
Pros: "The lunch served on the Munich to O'Hare segment was well above average for plane food. Like how the seat reclined. Inside temp was good."
Cons: "What's to like about today's airport experience, irregardless of the airline?"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the plane was clean and well-presented."
Cons: "The flight left with a slight delay. As I boarded, I was issued a new seat in the middle, as opposed to the window seat I had selected. There was zero explanation for this change. When I approached the flight attendants about it, with a smile on my end, I was offered the equivalent of a shrug. As I gave up, I was also informed there was no more room in the overhead bins, so not only did I end up sitting in the middle (which I loathe), but also with my carry-on under my feet. I’ve always been a fan of Lufthansa, but I’m a little disappointed this time around."
Pros: "Professional, efficient, full, nice sandwich and coffee."
Cons: "You cancelled. Cost me lost lodging, missed connecting flights and a day of my trip."
Cons: "Beware. Frankfort to Paris A321 Business class is coach with an empty middle seat. Uncomfortable even for a short flight. Very disappointing following excellentvbusiness class on first leg of trip Orlando-Frankfort"
Pros: "Enough space for my legs, cabin crew okay"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Crew greeted every passenger with a smile on entry and exit! So nice. Delicious, large cookie for a short flight."
Cons: "Boarding was poor. Did not board back of aircraft first like Lufthansa does on other flights. Felt sardined almost because of a full flight"
Pros: "Although clearly an older plane, it was clean. Gate personnel re-assigned me to a seat in a row with no-one in it."
Cons: "The gate of departure moved twice before departure. The last change was to a completely different building. Apparently the equipment was changed and I did not learn that I would need a seat re-assignment until I scanned my boarding pass during boarding. (However, the gate agent was quick to accommodate)."
Cons: "There were no Lufthansa representatives in Frankfurt airport upon my arrival. Also my connecting flight wasn't showing on electronic board. I had to get WiFi connection in order to get any info. I was very unhappy about it ."
Pros: "It was quick and smooth. Snack provided. Baggage arrived quickly."
Pros: "The crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "We waited over an hour for two people to board the plane. After we waited, the couple didn't make it past security; so, we had to wait another 20 minutes for the company to take their luggage off of the plane. I was late checking into my hotel, which was in the process of being canceled."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Pros: "Lufthansa kept to the time schedule"
Cons: "At Frankfurt, the boarding gate was changed two times."
Cons: "Breakfast bun was not tasty - too much bread and not healthy at all."
Pros: "Title says it all Short flight"
Pros: "Standard short flight."
Cons: "I have no idea why they would book this flight for a connection to Chicago. They only gave me an hour window for connecting and with the plane delayed 30 minutes I had to rush through and skip everyone in like at passport check and made it just as the were boarding my connection."
Cons: "crew service was not good especially in flight from Mumbai to frankfurt. I was not served with midnight snack though i was awake."
Pros: "Everything worked like an expensive Swiss watch! Employees were polite, friendly, and very helpful! I will fly with Lufthansa again and again!!!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, overall international flight experience was comfortable. Thank you."
Pros: "- crew was nice - overall flight was smooth"
Cons: "- not too unexpectedly, food was small - bring something warm to wear, as at some point temps can be real cold... - wish the boarding process was slightly more logical and have people with seats in the back of the plane go first"
Pros: "Very nice flight attendants, the food was good, enough leg space."
Cons: "My entertainment screen kept freezing, which was quite annoying when you are trying to watch a movie."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and pleasant crew"
Cons: "It was a short flight so no food was given out."
Pros: "Unfortunately expectations on flights are so low that I am hesitant to say much. It got us there in one piece and I guess that is considered nice these days."
Cons: "I don't normally expect much of airplane food but this was a very low end food for an overseas 8 hour flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly and attentive. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "My seat back was not easy to keep in the reclining position."
Pros: "Flight was 10 minutes late departing but a short flight time led to us arriving in CDG on time."
Cons: "Baggage delivery to carousel 6 at CDG took over 40 minutes with delivery coming in small batches......the flight time was shorter!"
Pros: "The wide selection of content to watch, food was good."
Cons: "45 minute flight delay due to a discrepancy with the engine."
Cons: "From the boarding to the landing this crew could not have been more rude. Flashlights in the eye when trying to sleep, rude comments, rude attitude. They are clearly not here to make our flight easier."
Cons: "The food was not goot at all."
Pros: "Great service and entertainment. Pretty comfortable, too."
Cons: "food was so so."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and several announcements made the flight easy"
Cons: "We were late !"
Pros: "Everything. Great crew, great food, good selection of entertainment."
Cons: "I didn't like putting two family on different seats far from each other"
Cons: "I was bumped off my flight and re-routed return to NYC. Flight was supposed to depart at 10:25am and flight they put me on left 1:05 Pm and the connection was not even Finnair, but Icelandic air. The Kayak site did not alert about extra charge for confirmed seat before I had paid in full ticket."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, no leg room, no space between seats and the trays hit ones’s stomach. The whole experience was very uncomfortable. The food was awful. Overheated and not cooked through at the same time. Breakfast was odd. Non-Greek yoghurt and cashews. Just strange."
Pros: "Crew was great and welcoming"
Cons: "Some features on screen did not work, also seat handle wasnt possible to lower"
Cons: "The transfer was a disaster. We had to go through the security check (even though the transfer was in the Schengen area) and almost missed our connecting flight."
Pros: "Lost my baggage"
Pros: "The choice of entertainment is huge"
Cons: "The fisical conditions are terrible. Seats so narrow and rows are so close, that you practically pooched into your neighbors, those that behind don't let you to recline your seat as then your seat is in their face. It looks like American Airlines hopes to exchange your reality with virtuality, but our bodies that we are for some reason taking with us on that itinerary - suffer."
Cons: "Nice flight, nice crew"
Cons: "Flight was late, I had to spend my own money to go to another airport, because I was late to my flight, so they had to re-book it. Awfull experience. A lot of stress"
Pros: "Friendly crew, modern and clean plane."
Cons: "After we landed the crew diacovet d that we had parked too far from the gate and needed to move the plane. Several passengers were anxious to deplane to connect to another flight and refused to sit down which caused further delays. The crew could have been more stern about passenger conduct as to make the process more efficient."
Pros: "Headset did not work properly overall it was great"
Cons: "Headset receptacle did not work properly I could only hear in left ear"
Cons: "They let us board before fixing an electrical problem causing major delay. They needed a new part and they thought they could jerryrig a repair!"
Cons: "It is ridiculous that they would not allow you to select a seat for free at check-in. There were many unoccupied seats, but some families with children were seated separately, so there was a lot of seat changing before the take off."
Pros: "American Airlines gets a thumbs up for this flight! Great seating, food decent, on time. We waited for some folks to join from a connecting flight which was good business."
Pros: "Airplane was pretty spacious and clean and it had all the amenities of a newer plane"
Cons: "Small plane incredibly cramped for8 hour flight"
Pros: "Loved the flight attendance!! They were friendly, witty and flexible."
Cons: "Even though we had booked this flight in September we were never able to choose a seat for this flight. We kept trying and the only way we could pick a seat months and weeks ahead was if we bought an upgrade. We had already spent over $1000 to fly to Paris each and did not want to buy an upgrade. We just wanted the assignment of a seat. When we got closer to the date we were told that we would get a seat assignment at check in. At check in we were told we would get a seat assignment at the airport. At the airport we were told we would get a seat assignment at the GATE! At the GATE the attendant had difficulty finding our seats and finally found them with the help of another attendant. This adding extreme stress to a trip that was planned in September and should have been a pleasureable experience. Our seats were not together and we then had to go on the plane and ask other travelers to change their seats in order to be near each other. This was not our job! We ended up near each other but not together. Then when we arrived in Paris we noticed that our suitcases had been tagged STAND BY!!!!!! We were glad that we did not see that at the Philadelphia airport because it would have added even more stress to a long anticipated pleasure trip to Paris. Next time we will make sure that the tickets we are purchasing (FINNAIR) have nothing to do with American Airlines."
Pros: "American Airlines flight didn't even have tvs, chairs were old and outdated. Not worth the price. Now days there are some standards that are expected"
Pros: "Two hours late leaving Miami. Just made my CDG connection with 2 minutes to spare thanks to faster delivery of luggage at CDG"
Pros: "comfortable seats, meal was better than expected, in flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "it's absurd to have to pay like $70 more for window seats"
Pros: "Flight was operated by American and they really absolutely need to update their planes on the JFK-CDG route. It is the only airline that does not provide individual screens, the seats barely recline and the air quality on board on board lives a lot to be desired as the plane odor is just not good."
Cons: "Service, choice of movies, uncomfortable old seats, impossible to change my seat in advance"
Pros: "Food, not crowded, small plane"
Cons: "No individual tvs"
Pros: "Nice company with good personnel."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment and seats didn't recline well"
Pros: "American Airlines executive club checking and boarding is quite good in an always packed airport"
Cons: "Very old plane. Not a nice crew."
Pros: "old planes tight seat no entertainment late boarding"
Cons: "Very old plane No leg room No tv Grumpy crew Over an hour delayed"
Pros: "Fabulous crew, easy flight with just a few periods of chop - captain kept us well aware of what was happening at all times."
Cons: "Poor entertainment (no individual units on seats), and the 767-300 has almost no leg room in economy."
Pros: "I am not sure why when i bought my ticket on kayak just fly was the company I had to deal with. They are extortionist. They should be deleted from your website."
Cons: "Tried to change my flight, line got disconnected, when I called back the fees went from 500 to 1100 - they couldn't justify why. I will never use kayak again if these kind of people is who I have to deal with coupled with awful customer service they hung up on me three times."
Pros: "The boarding process was expedient and the food was ok and standard for these flights."
Cons: "I travel at least 1 week a month either to Europe, South America or across the United States. The Airplaine was extremely old and looked like it was not refurbished at all since the 90's. Unlike basically every other airline (including airlines from the developing world) the plane did not have a personal entertainment system which is rather vexing considering the flight is so long. The decoration of the plane looked old and worn. The crew were more interested in getting the job done quickly than properly."
Pros: "Crew was nice and boarding was on time"
Cons: "entertainment on the A330 is so sluggish people think the screen is not working correctly pushing harder and harder on the screen making it uncomfortable for the people in front of them. Food is as usual: Not very healthy and always the same."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and very accommodating. Inflight entertainment had many choices, had a wonderful relaxing time. The food was not too good but then again it's airplane food. Overall, recommend the experience."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival"
Cons: "Was not Finnair but American Airlines operated flight, so cramped, no personal entertainment system, sub charger, etc. Would have been great if this was 1996 and not 2016."
Pros: "I did not like anything about this trip."
Cons: "Our flight from Chicago to Paris was managed by Finnair, but flown through American Airlines. This was the second disappointing flight on American Airlines. Our first flight was repeatedly delayed over three hours and then canceled. Everyone had to take a new flight the next day on the same plane which was scheduled to be fixed that morning prior to departure. We boarded the plane 45 minutes late and then were informed that the part needed to fix the plan had just cleared customs. After another hour of waiting on the plane, we taxied to the runway and the returned to the gate because another part needed to be fixed on the plane. We waited another hour and a half on the plane before finally taking off. Upon our arrival at Chicago O'Hare, we waited on the tarmac for 30 minutes before the ground crew parked our plane. Which brings me to this flight from Chicago O'Hare to Charles de Gaulle in Paris. Our flight was delayed for maintenance repeatedly for 2 hours and then a new plane had to be brought over. By the time we boarded we were almost four hours behind schedule due to a logbook problem once we boarded the new plane. The plane itself was small - the size of a domestic flight - and VERY cramped. On both of the flights we had no TVs in the headrest. This is something that I have always had in economy class on international flights. It was by far the most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on. Because of the delay, we had to reschedule one of our two connecting flights. I was assured that our bags would still arrive at our final destination. When we finally reached our final destination, we found out that our bags had been lost along the way - most likely because of the flight being rescheduled."
Pros: "Staff was kind, flight itself generally went smoothly. The boarding process itself went fairly quickly, and I was able to disembark within minutes of landing."
Cons: "This Finnair flight was operated by American Airlines, but American Airlines did not notify me about the change in flight number until I called in a panic the night before because I was unable to check in. The plane was nearly 2 hours late departing from Chicago O'Hare with no explanation given. 1hr and 45 minutes is a long time to sit without going anywhere. Food was incredibly uninspiring and the staff was kind, but generally seemed distracted. I asked for a beverage at one point, but the flight attendant was too busy trying to get the passenger next to me who was passed out on sleeping pills to put the window shade down to give it to me. American Airlines is one of the only carriers left that has not upgraded to individual entertainment units for transatlantic flights and so the entertainment was like something straight out of Mad Men. Probably my worst flying experience to date."
Cons: "International flight delayed 2 hours for multiple mechanical issues. 45 minutes before boarding, we were given a $20 voucher for food and drink (which we couldn't spend on snacks, just big meals, which was undesirable so late at night). Flight itself played Mission Impossible 4, then a kid's cartoon, then nothing the remaining 5 hours. Very uncomfortable for those who can't sleep on planes."
Cons: "We waited for 3 1/2 hours in the plane before taking off. We ended up landing with a 3-hour delay."
Pros: "Aircraft was so old.Paying $1,000 for that, when any other airline uses decent aircrafts, is just unacceptable."
Cons: "no food on the first flight no private tv they tell you can have wi fi entertainment but you have to pay for it the staff was rude tell also told me my cary on luggage could not be taken on board because there was no more space so i had to cary all my things for two flights but once i came in into the plane there was plenty of space. the seats had a very low head rest"
Cons: "Delayed 5+ hours. Aircraft was changed to a smaller plane than we booked."
Pros: "other than that, the flight was fine. did not sample the food"
Pros: "the crew was good and helpful. They should be paid more."
Cons: "ALL my print outs say FINNAIR, your asking about my FINNAIR flight, all says FINNAIR, so I go to the airport and wait 30 precious minutes at the FINNAIR counter to check in ( there was no self check in computers) only to be told Ah, you are not on FINNAIR, you are on American and must go to the American counter. I was given my itinerary back and rushed to American and began to self check in only to realize in the rush the woman had not given me back my passport. So, I rushed back to get it, loosing more time, only to find she had given it to another agent at another American counter but not at the check in area, and it took more time to find out who had my passport. I made my flight, but if ALL says FINNAIR, how am I supposed to know that I should instead be looking at fine print to discover which airline I am actually flying on and waste time!!!!!!! It should state CLEARLY that I need to check in at the American counter. In flight entertainment was really poor in comparison to other airlines on international flights."
Pros: "Good footroom in Main Cabin Extra."
Cons: "Delayed 5 hours. No power or individual VOD at seat."
Pros: "I had tsa which started the trip in a wonderful way! On time. Captain seemed nice and competent. The crew nice too."
Cons: "I flew American not finnair. Very confusing. I paid 65$ for a better seat. It was further forward but not worth the money and the others around me I don't think they paid extra. No movies. Couldn't see the screen."
Cons: "Small seats and no in-seat entertainment."
Pros: "The flight did get us there."
Cons: "This flight had about 6 different airlines listed. I was supposedly flying Finnair. Make no mistake, this was an American Airlines flight. On an old plane with crummy entertainment, uninspired food, and uncomfortable seats. But we did get here."
Cons: "Sat on Tarmac for 1.5 hours. Apparently something was wrong with the plane. And then we waited for a mani tenancy log to get signed. Typical American Airlines garbage."
Cons: "My mother had a food poisoning and needed a lot of water. The crew member at the end refused and told her no more. Since when there is a limit to how much someone can drink water? She had to stay dehydrated because she was dined the option to drink. Just upsetting."
Cons: "Entertainment system operated intermittently. Headphone jack didn't make good contact with plug, no noise reducing headphones, mediocre food."
Cons: "entertainment, comfort"
Cons: "Boarding at LAX was one hour late. And the lines were chaotic and very disorganized."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Install AirShow for flight tracking."
Pros: "Small plane but comfortable seats with enough space"
Cons: "Very stressful transfer - 30 mins are not enough"
Pros: "Everything went fast and smoothly."
Cons: "Food/snacks - little bit more"
Cons: "Not being late"
Pros: "Cheap fair to Eastern Europe. Newer movies."
Cons: "Crammed seats. Flight delayed, almost missed connection flight. Luggage didn’t make it to the final destination. Luggage was delivered to my hotel in 2 days, but noticed they have been opened (had tapes around my bags, the tapes were cut/altered). Some stuff was missing. Worst."
Pros: "Very friendly crew , free beer"
Cons: "being 100% on time with take off"
Pros: "The crew was disappointing."
Cons: "I had to beg for a blanket, and other basic service."
Pros: "There was nothing to like, I will not fly with this airline again if I can help it."
Cons: "Almost everything can be improved! The crew was trying to be helpful but obviously lacked the proper training, the seats are ergonomically incorrect, breakfast did not exist- I had to get a horrible lunch sandwich at 7 am, and the “complimentary water” consists of a gulp in a tiny half filled cup."
Pros: "the crew was really amazing!"
Cons: "The check in was very late and not very efficient"
Cons: "Very poor English for rhe crew. Not all of us speak Polish. The crew was rude."
Pros: "The crew remained polite and we were given a bottle of water each during at 2.5 hour delay."
Cons: "We had a two and half hour delay on an evening flight on a Sunday from WAW to Paris. This was during the UNFCCC COP24 when there was extra heavy international traffic through Warsaw. It was not clear why the plane was delayed for so long. It meant in the end that we got to Paris after midnight when the RER train had stopped running and the airport was functionally closed. This meant instead of a train ticket, rather a 55 euro taxi to get home. This was an expensive delay."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Baggage destroyed"
Cons: "My entertainment screeen froze in first 40 min of flight, the food portions were tiny"
Cons: "- Boarding: was rainy and is quite complicated when you need to take the bus; All the other difficulties were more related to the weather. However, for a ~260 EUR flight, the lack of comfort and basic food were unexpected."
Cons: "All flights were delayed. Terrible service all around."
Cons: "We had for different flights with LOT airlines and all of them were delayed. No updates were given at the gate and some announcements were only in Polish. Landing in Warsaw we had to circle around for a while because the airport was closed due to air parade."
Pros: "All in all, the seats had more legroom than I expected for economy. Much more than American airlines (AA, United, Delta). Love the direct flight as it saves so much time."
Cons: "This was the 4th flight I have taken between LAX and Warsaw...but was the first time that there were no beer nor wine available in between meal services. On a 12-13 hour flight, this was a definite disappointment compared to my other experiences on LOT. The other concern was there were only two meals, and no snack service on a very long flight. This again stood out in contrast to the previous flights I have taken on LOT."
Cons: "Small air craft"
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Good snack"
Cons: "Beverage selections are limited"
Pros: "Comfortable, civilized"
Pros: "Flight was good. Warsaw is a well organized airport and easy for transit passengers to negotiate. Flight crew, staff were all helpful and approachable. The captain gave passengers relevant information and cabin crew did the same. Flight was problem free no turbulence no delays no just well run and well organized."
Cons: "Leg room - I know in economy you can't expect much but passengers are really cramped on the 787. 9 hours of sitting in a very restricted space with little opportunity to get up and about if you are hemmed in between two fellow passengers - and once the idiot in front of me had reclined his seat it became very uncomfortable. I don't frankly see why seats need to recline at all - it does not make it much more comfortable for those "reclining" and certainly makes it considerably worse for the person sitting behind. I also don't understand LOT's boarding process - it didn't make much difference but if you are assigned a ZONE 3 boarding number and it is never displayed and never called, what"s the point."
Pros: "my flight canceled from WAW to EWR"
Cons: "my flight canceled from WAW to EWR"
Pros: "fast crew service"
Pros: "I book this flight months in advance and got a really good deal. Everything was really good, crew was pleasant food was pretty good, which is rare in the air. Airplane was clean and the bathrooms dint stink. Entertainment was very good, loved it that I could find good Russian comedies. Seats were really comfy, I slept for the first time in a plane. Really recommend this airlines"
Pros: "the crew was friendly and helpful. it wasn't such a long flight and despite that, they still had smiles on their faces when you needed something."
Pros: "Not 1 thing !!! Bad.bad.bad"
Cons: "The legs room, no free meal, on the flight from warsaw to tel aviv. 1 hour late on departure from warsaw to tel aviv"
Pros: "Flight was smooth with no problems."
Cons: "No entertainment system."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional. Really@"
Pros: "Airplane was super old, no tv, food was horrible"
Pros: "Friendly Crew"
Cons: "My outbound flight was cancelled and i had to wait 3h to re book."
Cons: "BROKEN LIGHT! I wish I had some tape or even a bandaid to block that annoying light- did not sleep at all"
Pros: "I love the service"
Cons: "Food, service, and everyrhing. That was great experiance with LOT. Love it"
Pros: "Relatively new aircraft with not-bad room between the rows. Water, coffee and tea offered gratis, otherwise pay for snacks, but prices not bad. Good flight for a budget airline. Twi toilets for a full plane a bit ridiculous, but the flight was only 2 1/2 hours, so no big lines."
Cons: "Baggage fees"
Cons: "For a ticket of more than 300 usd you would expect at least a sandwich and a drink...."
Pros: "Pleasant personal, great service!"
Pros: "Food and service were ok."
Cons: "I flew in Premium, but I had to call the airline to have the seat assigned. I could not choose the seat online although the website said I could choose a seat ahead of time. The only way to see the arrangement of seats was through seatguru.com. The best seats for the Premium Class are 4A, 4B and 4F and 4G, which are the first row in Premium. The rest of them have legs or boxes under the seat in front of you, so there is really now way you can stretch your legs fully under the seat in front of you during the flight. I was able to secure 4G for my return flight from Warsaw, but going to Warsaw from O'Hare I was put into 6B, no proper room for the right leg. They did not let us use the Business Class bathroom, which was much closer. We had to go all the way to the bathroom behind the row 19. Very inconvenient. They allow dogs in the Premium cabin, so if you are allergic to dogs brace yourself. I fly LOT only when I have no other option."
Pros: "The entertainment on the plane was great. Large selection of movies, music, and TV shows to keep yourself entertained. The dinner was adequate. It was also nice having the overhead screens continually update our flight progress."
Cons: "The seats are incredibly cramped, by the end I was feeling seriously claustrophobic. It didn't help that we left late. The boarding process was a mess, nobody seemed to know what to do, and the announcements were all mumbled to the point where I was just guessing what to do. The second meal served was inedible as the bread was completely stale. Also, one of the toilets was broken and kept flushing, even when sitting on it. Like the boarding process, disembarking was sloppy and confusing. It took a very long time to open the door, and they only told people at the last minute that they needed to get their passports out."
Pros: "Nice crew, arrival on time, quick delivery of baggage"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment- could be just provided through wifi"
Pros: "The price and the fact I could take a 23 kg bag without paying extra."
Cons: "The check in agent in Riga was very rude. There were two people ahead of me, and a regular line and a priority line. There was no one in the priority line. The first person was served. The woman at the priority line said, "Next," and the woman ahead of me approached, and was told it was the priority line. THERE WAS NO ONE IN THAT LINE. Having witnessed this, I did not approach when she said, "Next." She chastised me for this severely. I am hearing impaired and I was not sure what exactly she said, but it was completely inappropriate behavior. And when I have to pay for coffee, I don't expect it to be instant, and weak, and terrible."
Pros: "Got me to Paris in one piece"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving and arriving. Even so it was an international flight, no food was available except for a glass of water and a wafer. Paid food had a very short menu. The head stewardess was in a bad mood most of the time and there was line at the bathroom as there was only one. Boarding was by bus and we waited a long time in the bus before it left for the plane, bad organization."
Cons: "Had to pay for coffee"
Cons: "I had a 16 hour layover, which started as as 4 hour layover. Then the airline lost my baggage that I got after 4 day. Never flying with them again."
"This was not an Iberia Flight, this was a LEVEL flight (even if you, Kayak, sold it to me as Iberia). The ground hostess was disgraceful, and only because of her nasty behavior towards me and my family, I am planning not to fly LEVEL ever again. I am not sure I will fly through Kayak either. Because of your deceptive techniques, I thought I was buying a flight with luggge included, but I wasn’t. I had to pay 550 euros extra in luggage. Are you, Kayak, going to return this money to me? That would be elegant. And also because of your deceptive techniques, I thought I was flying Iberia, but I was not, it was Level. It turns out Iberia does take cats on board, but level does not. So once I was at the airport ready to fly with my cat, I was told cats cannot fly level. Overall, a sad and aweful experience."
"Never happened. Flight was canceled"
Cons: "We had to check our bags because the plane was too full, this was inconvenient and it made the plane arrive a little late"
Pros: "Awful food selection, small entertainment selection, none of the crew knew how to properly board the plane and left guests waiting in the aisle for over 45 minutes of standing for no reason and then yelled at the passengers that we were 'late' and that the standing passengers were causing the delay of the aircraft! The staff were VERY, VERY rude. I would do yourself a favor and NEVER fly Iberia!"
Cons: "Everything. They need an entirely new flight crew, new food service, new gate attendants, new baggage check, new ground crew. Just a joke."
Cons: "Personal very rude no manners to answer Questions or direct people."
Cons: "They lost my suitcase"
Pros: "Puntual en horas de salida y llegada"
Cons: "Son muy incómodos los asientos para un vuelo trasatlántico"
Pros: "The crew was really nice. They were friendly and genuine."
Cons: "The crew was very unpleasant . I boarded the plane - was not even greeted. This was not like business class at all . I felt like I just wasted money and did not get even close the service I expected. Flight attendants were ignoring my requests - no blankets no cocktails ... very bad ."
Pros: "The entertainment was ok."
Cons: "The staff was rude and ignored me and the person who sat next to me drinks we ordered (just simple water and a coke). They offered a variety of meal options, yet when they got to me they said they only had a beef option so i had no other choice but when they went to the person behind me they had dif"
Cons: "Still waiting for luggage 2 hours after arriving."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and not laggy."
Cons: "The seats are too small, and close together. The back rests feel 90 deg when upright. The staff are dry and harsh (On both flights.) Boarding and unboarding through the runway, in a very crowded bus. The planes got uncommonly hot before the air conditioning started, with many passengers starting t"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, new plan, nice crew"
Cons: "Wi-fi did not work"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work. Seats were ridiculously small but it got me to Paris safe and sound, and that’s what matters most."
Pros: "Good legroom."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding."
Pros: "La puntualidad de los vuelos"
Cons: "Compre mis tickets por iberia y me mandaron a AA sin derecho a maletas ni poder elegir mis seats"
Pros: "It was my first flight with Iberia - I was very pleased with the entire experience."
Cons: "The whole experience of missing my connecting flight due to Iberia's delay. When we deplaned they gave us Express Connection envelopes and told us to run to our gate - 21 minutes away, a passport and a security checkpoint along the way... this is after a red eye... facing an 11 hour delay before my next flight and a voucher to McDonald's - really????"
Pros: "I didn t like when a chose to fligth in Latam and thrn chance for iberia"
Pros: "Good seat compared to other airlines"
Cons: "The USB connector in my seat didn’t work"
Pros: "The staff was rude and not helpful. Check in was below standard."
Pros: "This trip would have been another good experience for me flying with Iberia if it wasn't for the man that was sitting behind me. He didn't want me to recline my seat because he wanted to cross his legs... I told him that the guy in front of me had his seat reclined all the way and I wanted (sort of needed) to do the same, then he got aggressive with verbal abuse, called me names and he punched my seat. So I called the flight attendant and told her about the incident. She was nice and calm and told the man in a very respectful way that I wasn't doing anything wrong and he should not behave in an aggressive manner, etc. The man kept mumbling insults addressed to me while talking to his wife and making sure I was hearing it.... And he kept kicking my seat every now and then, and made a fuss every time he went to the toilet. He really ruined my flight experience to New York."
Pros: "Good on board movies."
Cons: "Start boarding with the last row, not the 1st row - so people settling into the 1st rows do not hold up the people trying to reach the higher rows."
Pros: "On time dép and arrival"
Pros: "Great array of entertainment. The food was tasteful."
Cons: "No clear direction when attempting to board. Several passengers were unaware of what to do. Couldn't find the reclining button."
Pros: "I liked the service and, the in flight entertainment system. It was good food."

Pros: "We flew like we were on a business class service, excellent crew, nice offer of meals, comfortable seats and flawless journey. If you are given the chance to upgrade to Premium, do it."

Cons: "5 hours delay"
Cons: "Flight was ontime and food was good"
Pros: "Emergency exit seats. Very narrow though."
Cons: "I don't know what they served us. I wouldn't call that food. Breakfast was even more depressing than dinner. No entertainment system, except those collective screens – everybody needs to watch the same movie. Staff was rude and flight was 2 and half hours LATE."
Pros: "I liked the Crew they were very patient with all the passengers. They were bunch of really annoying kids in front of me and handled them very professionally."
Cons: "I didn't like that I could not control the air in business class. I spent good money to sit up there and I would expect to have control of the air because I had a 11 hr flight in a 90 degree plane. It was really a uncomfortable. Also I didn't like that their was no sporting events or cooking channels to watch on my flight and the movie selection were horrible."

Cons: "The plane was supper cold & the service was poor."
Pros: "I did a up grade To bisnees an it was very disapointed"
Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"
