Airline reviews

Pros: "Seat was comfortable, good movies, etc"

Pros: "The seating in upper class is unconventional and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Reconfigure seating in upper class. We will no longer be customers for that reason alone.."

Cons: "Very cramped aisle seat and I kept being knocked by passing crewe including knocking over a cup of water."

Pros: "Everything was easy"
Cons: "Business class seats are snug for big people compared to other airlines"

Pros: "Premium economy was perfect, smaller cabin with less people, great flight."

Pros: "Most of it was of a reasonable standard."
Cons: "Plane was full"

Cons: "Seats were really old and outdated"

Cons: "There is no entertainment, not really required on a short flight but nice when offered."

Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."

Cons: "Getting home 5 hrs later than planned"

Pros: "- Special meals available for those with dietary restrictions. - Friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "- Boarding kept getting delayed without any warning. - Duty free purchase was meant to be collected just before boarding the plane but mine was not there. This was not so much an issue but the man said he would have my bag sent to my seat and I was subsequently approached by a crew member who asked for my receipt. Which he was holding in his hand. I would have thought it would be quite easy to confirm the person without them having the receipt as the their name and seat number is on the receipt but he had to go back and check if it was okay. - Found it hard to sleep on the overnight flight due to uncomfortable seats. Would probably not be an issue in upper class. - No comment on entertainment as did not use it."

Pros: "The airplane was quiet My seat did not recline, but was seated in a different place where the seat reclined Bathrooms were clean and plenty"
Cons: "The remote controls for the entertainment system That you can’t reach the vents when you have to be buckled"

Pros: "Fabulous flight, light on passengers, so excellent service given by the crew. Virgin goes the extra mile on service and little perks. 747-400 planes also very comfortable, compared to the Airbus 320,"
Cons: "Nothing. Trip both ways were outstanding."

Pros: "Sharp good atention in counter"

Pros: "Crew was amazing and we got fed so often. The movie choices were good."
Cons: "I wish I could have ordered a drink (pay or otherwise) from the tv in front of me"

Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"

Pros: "Amenities"
Cons: "Bed was incredibly uncomfortable in first class. It was like sleeping on the floor. People talking loudly in the bar late into the night, which made it even harder to sleep. Didn’t sleep a wink on this 10 hour flight."

Pros: "Flew virgin after long time and kind of disappointment with comfortable seats. seats space is tight and legs space as well with some box under the seat."
Cons: "seat comfortable and let space"

Pros: "Friendly crew, clean, well presented cabin."
Cons: "Flight was late (again). Food was very little for an international service (small packet of pretzels + savoury muffin."

Pros: "Nothing. The whole experience was horrible."
Cons: "I didn't make it to Siem Reap because the first leg of the trip from IAD to London was cancelled by Virgin Atlantic after it was fully boarded. The excuse was that a flight attendant had food poisoning and was unable to fly and so the entire flight was cancelled. The Virgin team seemed unconcerned and showed NO sense of urgency to try and get people rebooked. Their solution was to rebook everyone on an evening flight the next day. If a passenger was only going to London, that was probably fine. But for people with connecting flights -- or like me with multiple connecting flights -- that wasn't acceptable."

Cons: "We haven’t possiblyty to check in online. Crew smell was terrible, ladies used some perfume, some people was allergic to it"

Cons: "Everything about my experience was HORRIBLE."

Pros: "I loved the movie choice!"
Cons: "The head rest comfortability, could be softer as well as the pillows, they could also be softer."

Pros: "The entertainment selection was good, though I didn't need to see the blurb about having vloggers available before every movie. One of the very few airlines to use boarding by rows, which speeds up the boarding process."
Cons: "The legroom is very cramped, pretty difficult to eat your meal with the seat in front reclined. The crew were not very attentive: they completely missed me while I was waving the rubbish on their collection rounds. In the end I had to dump it myself in the toilet bins. The PA system is too loud compared to the rest of the entertainment, had to remove the headphones for each one of them."

Cons: "The crew was rude."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "A plane from 1960? No entertainment center!"

Pros: "A large selection of movies, shows and music to choose from. Flight crews were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The narrow space between each rows for passengers to move from their seats."

Pros: "Did not take the flight in the end"
Cons: "My first leg flight was delayed and I booked through kayak on two different airlines and the first airline did not communicate with the second airline so 5 passengers ran to make the change and arrived 1 min after the jetbridge to get on the plane was pulled away. It was incredible frustrating and could have very easily been avoided with communication from the airlines"

Pros: "Quantity of food was less for the dinner time..but overall experience was good.."

Pros: "I wish I knew the name of the crew on this flight so that credit is given where it's due. A female steward was incredibly kind to me. She allowed me space to cry in the back of the aircraft, and also gave me her personal tissues. Her care is the only reason I'd give this flight an 'okay.'"
Cons: "Unlike the incredibly kind woman, another woman on the crew was incredibly rude to me and to other passengers on the plane. She was very obviously annoyed with nearly everything on that flight. The restrooms were beyond disgusting. I have never flown on a flight with a restroom that awful; it smelled horrible and was filthy. It was reminiscent of a portable outhouse, no exaggeration. The pillow on my seat had makeup on it."

Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "Entertainment screens were of poor quality"

Pros: "Virgin Premium economy offers a great up-grade on economy. Seperate check in (faster), seperate boarding (earlier), better food, service and more room than economy."
Cons: "There appears to have been an increase in cost above that you expect percentage wise. There has been reduction in the quality of the food."

Pros: "Plenty of snacks and great service, with comfy seats"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it to destination :("

Pros: "Friendly, helpful, efficient staff on the ground & in the air. Great selection of movies, tv, music for each person flying. Comfortable flight. Great beverage & food choices."

Cons: "It was impossible to sleep as the plane seemed extremely cold and was very noisy."

Pros: "Crew, fabulous, Plane configuration, GENEROUS, just the best flight I've experiences in a very long time!"
Cons: "Some meal choices were a bit sparse. That's my only complaint!"

Pros: "100% best flight ever"

Pros: "ear plugs, eye mask, pillow and blanket provided. fruit, water and juice available without asking someone for it. adequate leg room, good movie selection and 2 meals with wine provided."

Pros: "."
Cons: "For an international flight, the plane was too small, cramped and uncomfortable. Food had to be purchased. No entertainment what so ever. Previous I took a VA flight to Perth from Melbourne. Same distance, bigger plane, entertainment on seat backs and a meal. This flight soured me."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "this is not an airline, this is a bus company"

Pros: "New Dreamliner aircraft was very comfortable with loads of leg room for a tall person like myself at 1.76m"
Cons: "My seat was directly under the aircon and it was blowing very cold all night which made it quite uncomfortable. Fortunately I had an extra blanket which I could wrap over my head."

Pros: "Plenty of leg room Open area for self-serve snacks and non-alcoholic drinks Food was very good Super friendly attendants"

Pros: "Al comprar el ticket no se aclaraba que a pesar de ser un vuelo internacional se debia pagar por las valijas. Venia de hacer 5 vuelos internos por Australia y en todos los casos tanto Jet como Quantas aclaraban que se debia pagar por el adicional!!!"

Pros: "Not much not to like about this experience except for cramped seating in coach."

Pros: "Dont whish to comment unless a human being can contact me and help me get the $200 travel voucher I was promised. It was so stressful its the least that can be done"

Pros: "Great cabin comfort and entertainment. Very nice place to be."
Cons: "Cabin crew less warm and professionally nice than Virgin. One point that needs addressing is that when the cabin crew or, even more so, the pilot came on the PA, the sound level was so much louder than that of the entertainment system. You had people jumping out of their seats and it was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "It was on time, and the crew was welcoming and helpful."
Cons: "The lack of healthiness of the snack--mostly sweets."

Pros: "Every single aspect of this international flight was outstanding from check-in, customer service, the equipment, the meals, in-flight entertainment, etc. There is nothing I could suggest to improve this wonderful experience. Highly recommended!"

Pros: "There were lots of choices of movies. The flight was only half full, so I got two seats together to stretch out."
Cons: "The cups for water and juice were very small."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "For me everything was good"

This caused me to miss onnnection flight. There was very poor information or guidance by staff once we arrived into airport. I had to walk long long distances from the gate without assistance. I had requested wheelchair assistance considering I just had spinal cord surgery and In need of assistance. I was forced to stay over night in Istanbul and waited over 12 hours next day in airport for next available flight to Thessaloniki. I missed my brothers wedding night and could not be his best man for wedding from ordeal which was not fair! I also payed a premium price close to 1000k USA dollars for flight I could of booked many tickets with such a long layover and extra expenses buying a visa and food for half the fare I payed. This was not fair especially when a plane is diverted for medical emergency! To top it all off being a medical doctor I loaned and assisted staff with passenger and offered my consultation. services to emergency medical physician whom was called by crew for help and finally which reccomended to divert flight to Manchester to assist the passenger In crisis! Your welcome Turkish Airlbes Kindly Dr Tamir Kharouba MD"

Even though the floght was delayed 3-4 times For a total of 2 hours!

Cons: "Very Bed earing headset."

Cons: "Service on this flight was significantly better than the Cairo flight, probably just because this flight goes to London. Welcome drink were promptly served but the food choice was still a big no-no. EVERYTHING CONSISTS OF DAIRY PRODUCT THAT I M ALLERGIC TO. When I brought this to the flight attendant's attention, none of them was apologetic and none of them tried to find out another solution to me, who was flying their airline the first time and didn't know the not-so-diverse food option."

Cons: "Good service"

Pros: "Will definitely fly Turkish Airlines again!"

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 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: "The food could have been better..."

Pros: "Great entertainment"
Cons: "Not a lot of legs space"

Cons: "Didn't get to Instanbul or my destination of Budapest. There were mechanical Issues that I was told were weather issues. I was delayed over 12 hours, missed two connections and given the runaround about getting a place to stay for the night. The shuttle service provided took another hour at 2am! $47 to cover four meals and no mention of flight credit on my first leg for the HUGE inconvenience. A direct flight to Budapest a 27 hours after the fact is the best they could do and wanted to charge me a change fee too!! My vacation is cut short by this mess and my travel companions already in country are waiting on me to get their trip started. I will not be using Air Canada or Turkish air until they can communicate between one another and provide at least average customer service. So, it's safe to say that it will be the 12th of NEVER when I fly Air Canada"

Pros: "LOVED the attention that was given to passengers that wanted/needed rest."

Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."

Cons: "Delayed a couple hours."

Pros: "Excellent food, service and on-time"
Cons: "Seats too close together. Also -- and VERY important -- they are so close together that they shouldn't be allowed to tilt back and press further into the person n the back's knees.

Pros: "The KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring when there was confusion with my ticket."
Cons: "I booked KLM flights (Cork - Tampa return) but the planes were in fact Aer Lingus and Delta. So I have no idea what KLM is like. When I checked in at Cork the ground staff could only give me a boarding card for the first flight. For the second one she said I would have to go to the Delta counter in Amsterdam. It was difficult to find a counter there or staff as check-in was all by computer. The computer kept saying 'error' when I put in my code. I eventually was directed to a KLM desk (nicely hidden). I was told that my seat no longer existed. At this point the flight was ready to board. Thankfully the KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring and upgraded my ticket to economy comfort. On the way back, I could only get a boarding card for my first flight. The second two I had to collect at the boarding gate of the second flight."

Cons: "entertainments had many choices, but, almost all not to my liking. Sound quality was poor. I should know from previous experiences to NOT expect good food. The whole flight was noisy from the equipment not from passengers."

Cons: "Just the entertainment. Movies could be slightly better not a critic just a suggestion"

Cons: "Self-check-in at Munich was unnecessarily complex. Same for procedure to check in luggage. Also, the passport had to be inspected twice despite being already in the secure zone."

Pros: "I had a good seat with a large leg room area. The flight was really comfortable slept like a baby! The staff are really nice."
Cons: "Food was pretty terrible, however we got offered drinks more than once which was good. A better entertainment system or provide free WiFi"

Pros: "Everything was fine, the crew was excellent. We liked that Lufthansa did provide the special meals (that we requested on-line) for our family."
Cons: "The boarding was rather slow (but not extremely so). Calling boarding by row ranges, like some other airlines do, may speed it up or make it more comfortable. The seats were not too comfortable, but within what one can expect for an Economy class --- and not too bad, either."

Pros: "Staff is great"
Cons: "Food is not good."

Cons: "There was an issue on the bus to take us to the teminal cuz a passenger took another's passenger's backpack which looked exactly the same but they made us wait on the bus til the mix up was settled. A lot of the passengers got frustrated cuz we had connecting flights and the workers by the plane didn't care including the bus driver. We finally went but we almost missed our flight .we had to literally run to the gate to make it."

Pros: "There were blankets and pillows for every seat. There are USB ports at each seat as well as headphone plugs."

Pros: "Flight was on time and flight crew was very good."
Cons: "The food was not very good. Leaving Germany, I expected better tasting food. Our food leaving the USA and going to Germany tasted much better."

Pros: "It's not only pilot/auto-pilot or only weather dependent for sure, but ride was extremely smooth. landing was fantastic. Entertainment options were great. Crew was friendly and attentive. Sucks for LH, but I had to one sitting next to me on the 8-hour flight! no crying babies, no snoring. yiey!"
Cons: "Maybe US is ahead, but my experience with 2 terminals at Hanover and Frankfurt was that information exchange isn't good. Gate number was available at the last hour or so, which then got changed. Not just this flight. many flocks of people were running around to find their new gate... also as I mentioned climbing several stories of stairs with carry-on isn't fun! Not on this flight, but on my initial departure from US to FRA, monitors said go to Gate B. I got in line for Gate B as there was some security check, then we were told there was another B?!@ We had to go down and take the bus for that...written.. No where!"

Pros: "Wi-Fi and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "I'm 6'3" cramped in economy"

Pros: "Great service. Comfortable business class seats."

Pros: "Crew and service was very good,"
Cons: "Reclining seats. Great for you but not the person behind you. It puts the screen about 10 inches from your face when the person in front of you reclines and it's impossible to lean forward and rest your head on the tray."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant, bathrooms clean. Despite a late departure we arrived on time."
Cons: "It was a bit warm on both flights from DTW to FRA and the return. I usually dress for flying assuming it will be chilly but it was the opposite, a bit warm. No individual air control either. the last meal served was a ham & cheese sandwich which tasted odd..I couldn't eat it, other meals were fine."

Pros: "Lucked out. Flight was quite empty. Travel was comfortable and easy. A smooth ride all along."

Pros: "The entertainment choices were excellent and the service never stopped. The plane was comfortable and the bathroom clean. There was some turbulence, but that is not the fault of the airline, nor did it really bother me."
Cons: "There was a snarky attendant, but not all of them were that way."

Cons: "Lack of drinking water fountains at the FRA airport"

Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "The sound quality of the loud speakers for the announcement was awful. The sound for the movies was also not great."

Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "We were a little late with boarding. I prefer Lufthansa for travel, but I can think of a ton more, easy to serve, more healthy and delicious menu items. The food smells good, usually, but it isn't that great. The chicken I had was fine, but the side dish (sweet potatoes) wasn't good. The salad had too much radicchio, the soft cheese was too rubbery to cut (spilled my water doing so), the cake wasn't up to German reputation. Also, one flight attendant, got her own suitcase down, at least 5 times, stretching directly above me, with her jacket in my face and never apologizing. My seat wouldn't recline, nor could other peoples. This is why I paid to choose my seat, so I could sleep, more easily but I sat upright the whole time."

Pros: "The crew did a great job. The flight turned out to be nearly 10 hours since we had 150 knot headwinds. The food and free wine made things much to tolerable. You can't go wrong with Lufthansa."

Pros: "Everything was fine even though the plane was late,"

Pros: "Great Service Great Stuff will continue with LH in the future"

Cons: "Sounds in TV doesn’t work"

Cons: "Fight was cancelled, but we weren't notified until it was time to board (30-45 minutes before takeoff). We went to the help desk and were placed on a flight few hours later, but were never told the reason for the cancellation."

Pros: "Great service from a super crew. On time."

Pros: "Flight and land was smooth. I like Lufthansa, because it is safe."
Cons: "My trip was 8 hrs, we get water or juice only 5 times and very small cup 100ml, not enough"

Cons: "No vegetarian food on return flight from Frankfurt"

Pros: "Lots of food for such a short flight."

Pros: "Uneventful."
Cons: "And packed in like rolled up silk undergarments."

Pros: "ON TIME."

Pros: "Everything about this flight was amazing. The food was fantastic, the service was better, and my comfort was always at maximum. This company makes all American domestic companies pale in comparison."

Pros: "When my traveling companion suddenly became acutely ill the flight attendants stepped right in and assisted him to an available Business Class area where he could be cleaned up (including changing his soiled shirt to a clean one from the 1st Class supplies) and made more comfortable. They checked on him frequently during the rest of the flight and made arrangements to get us assistance off the airplane in Detroit and through the crowded airport in record time in order to get him to the ER as soon as possible. We are so grateful to them for their caring help during what could have been a very embarrassing situation."
Cons: "We had no complaints or suggestions. Flying with Lufthansa was a wonderful experience during a difficult situation."

Pros: "Flight cancelled see above"

Pros: "It was a relatively short flight. Boarding went well and efficiently. Flight crew was attentive."

Pros: "Overall, the Lufthansa service was excellent. In particular, the food service in economy class was extraordinarily good."
Cons: "We were seated at the end of a row beside the entrance to restrooms at the back of the plane, and on occasion the space beside us became a gathering place for groups of passengers, talking loudly."

Pros: "Tremendous selection of movie entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit confusing"

Pros: "My flight from Frankfurt to Detroit on Lufthansa was very enjoyable. The crew were great. They were very friendly and attentive to the passengers. I would choose to fly on Lufthansa again in the future."

Pros: "Staff , food , wine"
Cons: "Sat too close to the toilets , bad wafting smells. Only 1 earphone on my head set worked, unless I jiggled the plug. The plug did not fit neatly into the jack ."

Pros: "The flight was on-time and very smooth. Check-in and baggage drop were incredibly easy. I also liked the self-scanning of the boarding passes to board. Great number of options on personal entertainment screen - including movies, tv shows, and music that people actually want to listen to! Great flight overall."

Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."

Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Screens need a serious upgrade, my seat didn’t recline all the way nor could it be restored to an upright position. Not very comfortable and I paid for a seat upgrade."

Pros: "The crew was great! The food was also much better than other airlines. And passing out whole bottles of water was much appreciated."

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"

Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."

Pros: "kLM staff was great."

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

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

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"

Pros: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."

Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."

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

Cons: "They stole my money"

Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."

Pros: "Everything. A truly faultless experience!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew good flight was fine apart from delay due to fog in Amsterdam but kept informed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather in Amsterdam area"

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: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."

Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."

Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."

Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."

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

Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."

Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."

Pros: "Very efficient boarding, fast and professional but warm and friendly. The plane was very clean and quite spacious for a two by two configuration. On time departure and landing and smoothed processing at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing to improve"

Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
