Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was nice & didn’t wake me (but once or twice squished by me in the aisle without saying “excuse me,” which I found a bit weird). Food was good. Not too many announcements or interruptions."

Cons: "Flight from NY to Thessaloniki had a medical emergency. Plane was diverted to Manchester Airport in England to help patient on flight. This caused over 3.5 hour late arrival into Istanbul. 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"
Cons: "Had a layover in Toronto. From Toronto we flew to Istanbul and then Venice. While waiting in line to board in Toronto, I was told my carry-on luggage was too big and needed to be put under. I asked MULTIPLE times where my luggage would be- either Istanbul or Venice (final destination) and EVERY time I asked, I was told my luggage would be waiting for me in Venice. Once we arrived in Istanbul I asked AGAIN if my carry-on luggage was here or if it would be in Venice and I was told it would be in Venice. Once we arrived in Venice, my luggage was nowhere to be found. The lost luggage crew (and 90% of the people in Venice) were completely rude and acted like we were a huge inconvenience for them. (I've heard that many Europeans cannot stand Americans, but we were not being rude or obnoxious at all to anyone- we just wanted a quiet, romantic vacation.) So safe to say that it was an extremely rough start. We were in Venice for the Glass Art Society Conference in Murano and due to my luggage being lost, had missed the first day and a half, therefore wasting hundreds of dollars. Luckily my boyfriend's phone worked in order to spend our first two days of vacation (not to mention the amount of money spent on international calling costs) tracking down my luggage, but again dealt with completely rude people who barely helped us with any answers and even hung up on us multiple times (and I'd like to add that despite my frustration, I made sure that I was not speaking rudely one bit). The best answers we received were from the people at the Istanbul airport who told us that Venice received my luggage hours before I even called Istanbul- which I do not understand why the Venice airport did not tell me this because I spent all day speaking with them. Once I called back the Venice airport to confirm what the Istanbul airport told us, they said (once again rudely) that they called me on my phone but did not answer (which I already told them that my phone did not have any service and to call my boyfriend's phone number). So to sum up: I will never be flying to Venice ever again."

Cons: "Flight wasn't full but they packed the front of the plane. I finally moved since there was a huge man in the middle seat. First seat I move to, the woman thought she owned the entire row. Guess she bought a business class seat and the flight attendants moved her to her own row. Everyone else who had a row to themselves followed suit. I finally find a seat but it wasn't was attached correctly and was falling off. Was uncomfortable to whole 10hrs."
Pros: "I just liked the entertainment. I watched couple of movies comfortably. That's it."
Cons: "I didn't like the food, crew. Most crews didn't SMILE, din't greet properly. It is very disappointing. Why they don't Smile? During my trip to Atl to Istambul I asked one crew to give me some water. But she didn't give me. After then I asked another crew. It made me very upset. I am not satisfied about food.

At the end of the day no Turkish airline associate was able to help us and had to buy another ticket with Emirats . Tar table customer service and just took our money regardless of us flying with you guys. Coming back my mother was sick and we tried to get our ticket dates increased but still wasn't able to and now my mother has to buy another ticket with another airline just because Turkish airline was the worse experience we have ever had and we always fly international ."

Cons: "There was a gate change shortly before boarding but it wasn't ever announced on the loudspeaker. I was sitting at the original gate and by sheer lucK happened to get up and walk past the departures info screens only to see that my flight was listed at a totally different gate.

Pros: "Crew was kind and professional Flight was overall comforable"
Cons: "On my return flight to Athens from London, I was told that my hand luggage was too large and needed to be checked. I had to pay an extra 55 pounds (75 USD) to check the bag. On my Aegean flight to London a few days before, I was able to check the bag for free. I do not understand why I was charged for the bag on the way back but not on the way over. $75 is half what I paid for the flight itself - seems way too much just to check a small bag. I will keep this in mind when considering flying with Aegean in the future."

Pros: "Had to pay to check my bag in. Even though it was a patronize."

Cons: "Food served was not that good."
Pros: "Gate staff are able to deal with things"
Cons: "Check-in can't process baggage charges, so they send you off to an office across the airport, just to find that the payment processing office is closed for a couple hours in the late afternoon. Why don't you just set the baggage check in people up to process a credit card transaction?"
Pros: "On time departures and on time arrivals, full meal service and drinks"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service"
Cons: "The other passengers were very loud and obnoxious. During boarding it felt like we were a heard of cattle."
Cons: "boarding took for ever. service from the cabin crew was not good. no entertainment."
Pros: "The overall flight was okay. It wasn't as comfortable compared to other flights I've been on and it's a bit difficult to stow luggage. However, I miss my original connection due to flight delays and I was added to a different find free of charge! Very grateful and thankful for that."
Pros: "The cabin crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The space between seats was awful. As a taller person, it made for a very uncomfortable flight. And on top of it, these tickets were quite expensive! I'd love for an airline to prioritize comfort without making that an upgrade. I'll think twice, probably three times before using Aegean again."
Cons: "delayed departure and late notification of delay at 20 minutes to departure board said go to gate, at gate there was a 30 minute delay announcement then there was a further delay when we boarded"
Pros: "The service was excellent."
Cons: "The fact the passenger behind me needed me to sit up straight so he could eat mad me feel bad. I suppose entertainment is not a big thing nowadays with all the choices we have with smart phone's and tablets, so not so much a big deal. But with space itn is a big deaI. I reclined my seat and Icould feel my seat on top of someone's knees. So i sat up and struggled to sleep. I suppose in a sleepy haste I reclined my seat. I was awaken to a gentleman asking me to sit my chair up so he could put his tray down to eat his dinner. I felt horrible."
Pros: "LHR-ATH was all excellent. Good boarding, seats and service."
Pros: "Leaving and arriving on time, snacks not bad."
Cons: "I was charged 68 Bulgarian levas on our way back to Beirut . I had the same language from Beirut to Sofia and didn't pay any penny They asked from me 40 EUROS but the lady accepted 68 Levas. I wonder if the money went to the pocket of the employee."
Pros: "- free wine..."
Cons: "- they charged 80 to check in 2 bag (within size and their weight limit) - it took 1+ hr of waiting in line to provide your bags for check in - I had to get out of line to go "buy" the check in bags and then get back in line again - Waitress spilled drinks on a person in front and got my book bag on the floor wet."

Cons: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "loved the airline! would fly with them again."
Cons: "1h delay the gate was packed of people, no free seats no proper communication of delay"
Cons: "we were charged twice for the exact same flights, date and seats. My husband made the same reservations as I had for both of us three weeks later than my reservation was made. When this was discovered by us I called and was told by two agents that I couldn't get any money back. What a rip off."
Cons: "Attitude to the clients was really appalling"
Pros: "The staff was nice. We got there alive."
Cons: "The flight was so cramped, my husband actually scraped his knees on the chair in front of him. Like, a legitimate abrasion on his knee. We weren't seated together, but the people in the plane weren't wearing deodorant or any kind of smell prevention, so the plane was ripe as heck. There was no rhyme or reason to the way the attendants served us - they'd skip people, then come back 20 minutes later to finally serve the skipped person a drink. There was absolutely zero entertainment on the plane, and the food was bad. The airline staff at the airport before departure was even worse! Kayak didn't allow me to buy a bag allowance when I bought the tickets. And there was NO advance warning that there was a weight limit for carry on bags (8kg by the way). So, we got to the airport and had to pay over £100 to check all of our bags. I didn't bring a laptop case, because my bag was usually a carry on, so lo and behold, I got there and yay! My laptop is broken and won't turn on. The flight was incredibly turbulent and my life flashed before my eyes a couple of times. We also had to go to 3 different ticketing Windows and bag drops just to get my ticket and check our bags. You would've thought they were building a rocket ship with the amount of effort that went into the whole ordeal. As I mentioned before, we weren't seated together, and nobody told us this or mentioned it when we got our tickets. Just ridiculous!!"
Pros: "The flight left 40 minutes late and the captain didn't tell us why. Not good."
Pros: "On time, good service and economy food was better than any other airline I have ever flown."
Cons: "Delayed without explaining?"
Pros: "Small plane but comfortable seats with enough space"
Cons: "Very stressful transfer - 30 mins are not enough"
Cons: "I missed connection flight from Warsaw to Belgrade, so they sent me on another flight to Vienna and than to Belgrade. All together almost 20 hours of flying. Layover was 1 hour on flight from Chicago. Entertainment Screen was freezing every 10 min. It was imposable to watch movie"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good food, lots of free drinks."
Cons: "Flights seem to be delayed every time we fly LOT. Flying out of Warsaw, crew did not communicate that we'd be traveling to the plane by bus, which led to very long lines and a delay in takeoff."
Cons: "Delayed by one hour"
Pros: "The flight was deleyed and they lost my baggage."
Cons: "Delayed 1:15hr"

Pros: "Again, everything went good."
Cons: "Delay for late."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 5 hr"
Cons: "We had seats not together. As more of passengers. Only asking to change seats helped"
Cons: "Sound control on the entertainment console was a bit wonky. Nothing major, just enough to be annoying until I figured the details."
Pros: "New plane with charger available at every seat even in the economy class. Clean interior, polite crew"
Pros: "Comfortable plane"
Cons: "The entertainment did not work for a number of passengers in my area. The system was restarted once, with no results. The crew did not seem to care. The food service was poorly coordinated."
Cons: "Was delayed. A huge guy was sitting next to me and taking the space."
Cons: "LOT was late on every flight. Did not miss any connections, but could not leave on-time if it was there only responsibility."
Cons: "Departing flight left 2.5 hours late. Missed my connection. No one from LOT met us at the connecting airport to explain how our transfers would work. Airport security at the connecting airport bounced us back and forth a few times before deciding we should enter the transfer terminal and hope someone from LOT was still on duty. LOT put us up in a hotel overnight and booked us on a flighty the next day. The hotel was 1 hour drive, 50miles, from airport. I reached my final destination 13 hours late."
Cons: "Every time Lot plane delayed!!!"
Pros: "It was a short, quick, pleasant trip."
Pros: "Brand new plane, very smart albeit plasticy and clunky. Professional staff. Very helpful when I had a specific personal request at the booking office. Flight crew were not constantly trying to force us to buy things or making announcements every 5mins like some budget airlines I could name. Flight was 30mins early so no problems there."
Cons: "Warsaw Airport is terrible. Not enough seats in the departure longes. Not enough choice for shops. Not enough toilets for the volume of passengers."
Cons: "The sound of the plane’s engine was annoying"
Pros: "I liked the plane, smooth landing."
Cons: "They lost my daughter’s luggage!Not good since we will only be in Krakow for 4 days!"
Cons: "At check in the website did not allow me to purchase checked baggage. I arrived at the airport and paid 80 Euros to check in my 12kilo bag. I bought I would be proactive and pay for the baggage for my return(only 20 euros). I received only a receipt for the 20 euros, but paid 63,250 drams. Something is shady and I feel duped. The flight was over an hour late with no explanation. There was a plane at the gate when we landed, which added to the tardiness of arrival. They were so non Chalant about so many people missing their connecting flights. It was like they already knew they were going to put us on Lufthansa 2 hours later... polish airlines Is awful- the airport personnel even worse. No one respects standing in line. Airport officials kept cutting into the security lines which literally cost me the 5 minutes that I could have made the flight. I am very diasspointed and kayak should not advertise this airline."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, cabin was as expected. Luggage arrive safely and on time (was a little worried it would not show, because online checkin said I had to pick up luggage and recheck before flight) (Virgin tagged it to go all the way through). So did not gav any issue."
Cons: "Flight was one hour late. No food service or entertainment for this flight, but was as expected."
Pros: "Service and overall experience"
Cons: "Media system was not working correctly"
Pros: "Could check my suitcase earlier (arrived at airport too early). I had a bit off over 23 kg but that did not pose any problem. Boarding was quiet fast and almost with timetable. The food was good and service provided pleasant. I was happy that we landed safely providing bad weather in Toronto that evening."
Pros: "The crew was hospitable and warm. All the in-flight service was attentive and high-quality. We had a wonderful experience with LOT and would reccent them."
Cons: "The only potential difficulty was the short layovers. We made our connection boarding with only 20 minutes to spare."
Cons: "Had to ask if I get some food too, because I was asleep and as I woke up everyone had food just not I. After 10 minutes I asked for some food. Also the personal could have gotten more times around to bring water. I had window seat and didn’t wanted to disturb my neighbors so I didn’t get up to ask for liquid but other passengers I saw getting up and getting their own drinks by the personal."
Cons: "When the main dinner came to my seat they ran out of pretty much everything, I wasn’t able to have an option on what to choose at all and was forced to eat the chicken dish that was very gross."

Cons: "Baggage was extra cost"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Baggage charge and hot plane"
Pros: "food prices, all on time"
Cons: "Cheap airline that is priced like a major airline. They charge for checked in luggage on flights between different EU countries. Major airlines don't do that, so check the fine print before purchasing."
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: "No good meals available in the flight."
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: "Service, listening to my questions, overall!!"
Cons: "Seats were too small."
Cons: "The crew had everyone measure their suitcases and pay for overweight, which significantly delayed boarding."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and definitely went out of there way to help members. The seat had plenty of leg room but the cushion seemed worn."
Pros: "Seats were good"
Pros: "Nice seats, clean spacious airport, nice crew"
Cons: "Flight was a little late which meant I had to take a later train, but otherwise everything was great."
Pros: "Departure and arrival were right on time."
Cons: "The seats were not adjustable. I wasn’t expecting so much comfort anyway but that would be nice."
Cons: "One hour delay and baggage retrieval also took one hour"
Pros: "Super crew en the plane was not full so 3 chairs available. I slept during the flight and very good pilot who made a great landing."

Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Cons: "Didn’t get to it"
Pros: "The employee were professional and nice. Every thing went smooth"
Pros: "Mostly everything was fine with the flight"
Cons: "Have never seen this happen elsewhere, but shortly after boarding, the crew announced they had to do a safety check, which required all the passengers to collect their personal items (i.e. everything from the overhead bins) to hold with them in their seats, as the crew 'checked' the bins and aisles. The procedure didn't seem to delay the flight, but just seemed a little pointless and a waste of effort. Thankfully there wasn't anything found or any other cause for alarm, but it just seemed odd."
Pros: "The lounge"
Cons: "Cancelled flight followed by delayed flight followed by the slowest priority baggage service I have ever seen."
Pros: "Fast amd easy flight"
Pros: "Quik flight"
Cons: "The fiod I requested from the menue was not available"

Cons: "Very bad transfer arriving from Istanbul at Antalya."
Pros: "Wonderful flight. Everything was Handled well by flight staff"
Cons: "Luggage took a very very long time to arrive. Some prop got their luggage but half the plane was left waiting for about 30 minutes"
Pros: "We got where we were going safely"
Cons: "My knees were actually pressed up against my he seat in front of me even though I had my butt all the way back. So, thankfully I had an aisle seat so I just stuck my knee out to the side...this was a partial solution only as the crew came by at least 5 times on a 2 hour flight with the service cart, smacking my knee each time. No complementary snacks or beverages... not even water. Somewhat surprised that they didn't charge to use the lavatory."
Cons: "1 hour queue to check in due to mixed international flights and not enough desks open. No room in overhead lockers, people seemed to have much more than their allowance. Didn't get to buy duty free items on-board as they ran out of time."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Fight was delayed by about an hour. Information screens at DUS airport did not work. Seat backrests were WAY too short, so I couldn't lean back. My back and neck still hurt because of that!"
Pros: "Cost was reasonable."
Cons: "Often it has delays."
Cons: "Delayed 35 minutes"
Pros: "Good flight overall and crew good"
Cons: "Left half hour late otherwise satisfied"
Pros: "customer service in general.."
Pros: "Plane was veryClean. On time. Staff were very frindly"
Pros: "The price was low, the plane was clean and well kept. Unlike other value airlines, they did not harass me to buy things the whole flight long... One pass through with the food cart if you wanted to buy something to eat, and then peace to enjoy the flight. Both the trip out and the return were on time."
Pros: "efficient boarding"
Cons: "seat a bit worn out. luckily it was a short flight"
Pros: "Everything perfect I Like the sun express"
Pros: "Plane departed early and arrived early. No incident."
Cons: "Alitalia chose to offer no-servce flights. Not a cup of water. Passengers need to go to the back of the plane, where the attendants sit together and chat the whole flight, and ask for a (tiny) bottle. What they do during boarding is jump on anyone who would dare to place a piece of garment in the overhead bins. It comes through as a fad..."
Cons: "Online check-in process. Boarding pass not available to be added to wallet. Unable to view; had to have the boarding pass emailed to me. No option to set up SMS tracking foe flight status."
Cons: "Crew didn’t show up. They later said it that they weren’t picked up. Weak excuse since they’re probably near the airport/airline could have informed us/flight could have been delayed properly. Everyone was there, plane was locked and departure delayed by some 36-40 minutes"
Pros: "Snacks were okay."
Cons: "Purchased my luggage fee online and for some reason they don’t have it on their computer. Had to pay a higher price at the counter and come to find out my account still got charged for the luggage fee."
Pros: "Ground staff"
Cons: "More baggage checking counters."
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "The seats aren’t comfortable, the entertainment system is finicky, not much leg room."
Cons: "they must work on quality and price"
Pros: "Even though the plan was full, the boarding process was quick."
Cons: "Extremely old plain. The worst entertainment center i’ve ever seen: it was just ok for the 80’s. The crew seems to not knowing how to smile."
Pros: "People next to me"
Cons: "Seat, food , no fee for bag, and service"
Pros: "The site was convenient and comfetable"
Pros: "Amazing crew helped us check in our luggage at a reduced rate."

Pros: "All was well but missed my bag and one opened"
Cons: "Missed my baggage and one was opened and wrapping removed"
Cons: "There isn't enough space on plane to enjoy the flight, it was more of, you have to go from one location to another. If it was more than 2 hours, I would have hated it even more."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Boarding started 20 minuets late"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "Muffin distribution and the cushion"
Cons: "There was the used cups and dirts left in the pocket of the seat I was assigned. It was dirty and disgusting."
Cons: "The seats were terrible for me ( i’m 6.4 194 c’m broad) although we paid extra $95 /seat I approached Torresin Lorella Chief purser , she was helpless , and from that moment I never saw her till the end of the flight. i really want my money back ! Her entire management of the service was very poor compared to other airlines Zvi and Judith Yaniv"
Pros: "Ok ok."
Cons: "Our bag out of luggage was missing and more than 24 hours there was no action. We were left helpless as due to Easter everything was closed and could not arrange any alternative."
Pros: "The easy transfer from incoming London flight to the connecting flight to Tirana without leaving the airside area of the terminal"
Cons: "Not being served a hot drink inflight. It doesn't seem such a difficult or costly service and most other airlines appear to manage it."
Pros: "Alitalia gets a bad rap, but I thought this flight was excellent, and a comfortably way to travel the 13 hour flight from Rome to Los Angeles. Cabins recently refurbished on 777 thanks to Etihad Airways investment. Food, and plenty of it, was excellent. Wide selection of wines. Choice between freshly made American coffee or Espresso (from Lavazza). Lie flat seats are way more comfortable than KLM. Esoteric selection of documentaries and Italian movies. Leather seats and color scheme is elegant. Also, business class lounge (Alitalia House) at Rome Fiumincino serves delicious freshly cut Italian cold cuts, cheeses, pastrries, and has an actual barista vs a machine. You don't get the sense that they are cutting corners, which is probably why the airline keeps losing money, but that is to the benefit of the traveler (for now). Service friendly. For nonstop to this part of Europe, or for connections to Southern Europe, it may be my number one Skyteam choice."
Cons: "Check in is extremely unorganized and long lines at Sky Priority, but someone finally directed me to the VIP check in in the back, which you can use if you are flying Business Class or have Elite status. This was not indicated anywhere, though, so make sure you ask or look for it if there is a long line at check in. Then, the gate is very, very far. Not sure why they had me check in at Terminal 1 as the gate is in Terminal 3. Make sure to allow for plenty of time, and maybe see if it's possible to check in at Terminal 3, which may well save time. But for a 14-hour flight in total comfort, the trade off was worth it."
Pros: "Decent flight. On time departing and arriving. Luggage arrived with us."
Cons: "Audacious prices for checked luggage. If you pay online prior to check-in €25 per bag If you pay at check in it is €45 per bag. This is downright theft by all the airlines who engage in this very profitable but nefarious activity and really needs to be stopped. First bag should be free/ nominal charge or at least part of the ticket price. (It is like a restaurant charging for cutlery and plates so you can eat . Would that be acceptable??)"
Pros: "The helpful crew on the ground in athens"
Cons: "Delay, change of gate, crew on ground helpful but crew on board was not polite at all."
Cons: "Lost our luggage from Rome to Malta. Now, 13 hours after arrival in Malta, no one can tell us where our luggage is!!"
Cons: "The flight departed one hour late."
Pros: "Everything else was excellent."
Cons: "There was no entertainment on this flight"
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Had problem with luggage, did not like food specifically cheese on dark bread sandwich, did not like going to gate but would need to climb stairs and get shuttle to plane"

Pros: "pretty comfort seats, and they give u a neck pillow!"
Pros: "Flight was quiet and smooth"
Cons: "Food was substandard Leg space very crummy"
Cons: "poor communication always, always late departure, seat space so small it baffles the mind on a long flight that they cram people into the plane in such a way"
Cons: "One of the entertainment systems was in disrepair. The headphone jack was jammed and the USB charge port was broken."
Cons: "The flight was operated by Alitalia, so my bad review is about it: 1- they made us pay 75 euro for 4 extra kg on the luggage; 2- once on board we had to wait 45 minutes before leaving the airport; 3- there was no entertainment on the plane which looked like a very old plane; 4- they served us a tasteless sandwich and muffin(MEA flight serves a full meal) 5- the choice of drinks was poor: water, Coca cola, tea or coffee, no juices or alcohol; 6- we asked for water 3 times and the flight attendant never came back; Being an expensive flight I was expecting something more than a low coast flight company. VERY DISAPPOINTED."
Pros: "Not much, but food was decent."
Cons: "Oldest plane I've seen in recent years, crew barely acknowledged our presence (talked to each other the whole time), no working air conditioning, and big metal boxes in front of the window seats that take up all of the leg room (yes these seats aren't cheaper."
Pros: "Easy booking and boarding. Flights on-time very nice catching next flight in and hour and have to go through customs and change tefminals. Didnt feel extra anxiety about catching next plane"
Cons: "Our entire row of inflight entertainment was not working. It wasnt a huge deal but it would have been nice on an international flight LAX to Rome 11+hours. Also limited drink options. Water or cola from bottle and sm serving sizes. It would have been nice to have option of can or cup."
Pros: "Crew was nice and seat comfy"
Cons: "They should upgrade their intartainment system"
Cons: "Everything. Paid premium economy, didn't even have milk for coffee, seats were horrible, food was mainly bread. Old entertainment. Snappy staff. Would never recommend this airline to anyone!!"
Cons: "Plane was late, so I had to rush for a connection in Rome."
Cons: "Very small seats and too warm!"
Cons: "staff was nice, lost my luggage, and it was 8 hours late, i paid 2x to leave earlier, and got in later than the cheapest flight"
Pros: "In Business, staff excellent and hot food okay."
Cons: "Connection time in Milan airport. 45 minutes from landing to departing. Only 10 minutes from landing to be at departing gate!"
Pros: "I liked receiving my luggage 2 days after I got to Rome suitcases were lost by air Berlin last time I'll ever fly air Berlin the seats are crammed horrible horrible experience never again"
Cons: "Old airplane. No entertainment at all. The lugage remain in the airport and didn't arrive at destination."
Pros: "Did not misplace my suitcase as they did on my October 28,2016 going to Rome. That was very stressful!"
Cons: "Alitalia customer service not answering and updating information on misplaced luggage. They acknowledged the mail...that's about it!"
Cons: "Individual in airport had us wait in line ONE HOUR TO GET CHECKED IN; he should be fired ; flight was fine"
Cons: "1. absolutely disorganized boarding, 20 minutes waiting for 3 relaxed passangers to join a crowded bus 2. absolutely disgusting business class, narrow seats, little space"
Cons: "There was some issue with checking in, there was a massive line and over an hour wait just for less than an hour flight.. there was zero communications as to what was happening and there were no staff attending priority queues"
