Food was not good and entertainment was also not updated The cleanliness was good and service was good

They literally discriminate the families flying with children. We had five tickets and they did let us carry only two cabin bags though the bags weighed only less than 10 lbs. very rude. They asked us to put all laptops together in one bag and check in rest of them at the gate in dallas. They asked us to check in one more bag at the gate in doha for our connection because the cabin bag with laptops is heavy. We were family of 5, traveled with one cabin bag to our final destination. I have been using qatar since 2014. Won’t fly with them again.

Delayed and hour talking off and delay the other end unable to get into the gate, had to wait on the runway for almost 40 minutes, not what you need on a 25 hour journey from Australia to the UK. No reason was given for the delay taking off, on arrival because we were late our gate was taken. Poor experienced.

Pricing

it would have been great to be disembarked from an Air Bridge instead of being bussed around the airport after a 16 hour Flight.

That was a wonderful trip. Staff are courteous, Doha airport is awesome and flight is very clean. Asian vegetarian food stated okay but could be improved.

It was hot inside the plane and the boarding was very crowded. But the seat comfort, and entertainment are spectacular

I changed the flight

Pros: "Amazing trip Qatar airline is great"

Cons: "Everything was super"
Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."
Cons: "Screaming babies, obese people sat next to me, water rationing, not a pleasant experience. Arrived sleep deprived and dehydrated. I have much better experiencs on a visit to Australia - this was my third time this year!"
Pros: "I got free internet on this flight: sponsored by Ooredoo. You can get 8MB for free! Breakfast was good quantity"
Cons: "Entertainment Oryx One, lunch quantity aswell. FPML had one tray, VJML and AVML had the same packed wrap."

Cons: "Boarding on Doha was chaotic"
Pros: "Excellent service..!"
Pros: "On time flights, orderly boarding, plenty of room for carry on luggage, no overcrowding, connection through Doha airport was nice as it is not crowded and has plenty of shopping options."
Cons: "Too many crying babies on board, food was just okay, crew were also just okay, entertainment system didn’t always work, cut out well before landing and took forever to reset."
Pros: "The visit to the lounge is always refreshing. The service at the shower area is great however policing of people using phones in the quiet zone should be enforced"
Cons: "The good got used a bus gate which is acceptable however this typically takes additional time if there is a connection flight"
Pros: "Ended up having spare seats beside me. Planes were new and in great condition. Staff were very good."
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "It was a pretty old flight and had no tv in front! Huge disappointment. Probably they thought ppl flying from Doha to Colombo were ok with a low quality flight with no entertainment."
Pros: "Boarding and crew were excellent."
Cons: "Lack of information about the flight delay of 4hr 45 min apart from expected take off time."

Pros: "Excellent travel with Qatar Airways"
Cons: "Only thing is security was too tight at Doha Airport"
Cons: "Not one of their newest planes."
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was very accommodating. The food is better than some other airlines. The entertainment provided had a lot of choices I had an 8 1/2 hour layover in Doha. They booked me a short stay in a hotel at no extra charge. This included a car and driver to and from the hotel. It was a nice hotel close to the airport."
Cons: "I was sitting in economy. I booked too late to get any type of upgrade for extra legroom. For Economy it was OK, but cramped and hard to get comfortable on a 13+ hour flight."
Pros: "All Qatar employees were friendly and helpful. A great flight!"
Cons: "We had to wait for about 5 years, more than 3 hours unscheduled wait. During this time we were provided with a very poor breakfast."
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "Everything fine"
Pros: "The usual customer care, from checking in to leaving the plane, second to none. Food choice and quality excellent."
Cons: "The new diagonal seats are good, except when trying to put my feet up. The raised foot area is very cramped, and for me sleeping wasn't possible. I left my feet on the floor."
Cons: "On the second leg, my first choice option was not available. Instead I was offered what appeared to be a lurid pink yogurt, coupled with fluorescent orange 'juice', together with the Indian vegetarian option. The accompanying 'muffin' appeared to consist of the following ingredients: flour, oil. Suffers from the "African flight's don't matter" syndrome when it comes to level of staff and entertainment. I was expecting better from Qatar - back to Emirates I go!"
Pros: "Plane was perfect"
Cons: "Transit was just tedious very long line , had to wait for along time. The crew have very strong accent which makes difficult to understand them, but they are very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Luggage was lost"
Pros: "Excellent customer service, smooth boarding, good food."
Cons: ""Enhanced" screening at Doha airport not only was more invasive but also held up passengers until end of boarding."
Cons: "The food was not that great, I asked for non veg Hindu , it was very bland and tasted like fake chicken!"
Pros: "On Time Cabin Crew great"
Cons: "Seats are so tight you will sense both of your neighbors skin during the entire flight"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and everything else was very good and comfortable on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. We got to the gate too early (by maybe 10 mins before boarding time) so we were told to sit outside of the designated seating area and that they would make an announcement when we should go back up there. There was never an announcement, but we felt it was getting late so we went to check at the desk and they then said we were late and they were waiting on us. They were very nice about everything, but just thought that was really strange."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Entertainment. Not all films have subtitle"
Pros: "Qatar airlines blew me away! The food was top notch and frequent, the flight attendants were incredibly nice and attentive, the planes and entertainment were world class aND they were affordable for our flight from Boston to Bangkok."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight left on time!!!!!! :)"
Cons: "Food was served too late. Unable to get a bottle of water as I was dehydrated."
Pros: "Everything...quick board,friendly crew,nice flight, good food, in flight entertainment was good....just a really nice airline to go with"

Comfortable seats and good tv. Food and drink service poor

once again everything from the boarding process to in-flight service was impeccable.

Pros: "Yes"
Pros: "Great crew, good legroom and comfortable seat"
Pros: "amazing customer service. great seats and interior. well on schedule."

Pros: "Everything Was Just Perfect"
Pros: "Cold meal was nice, standard business class, no amenities. Nice crew, welcome on board."
Cons: "The crew was in a constant hurry after. The meal was ok, but no cocktails served. Tablet was not working remotely, it has to be connected to the dock all the time. USB port was also not working, did not charge my phone. I’m glad that we did not buy the business upgrade for his flight before. It would felt wasting all our points. Luckily we were upgraded during check in. Check in was awful, they checked in 4 people in front of us roughly in 20 minutes in MLE. It felt like waiting for forever."

Pros: "Very Kind"
Cons: "My seat assignment"
Cons: "Excess baggage kilo rate is much more expensive than most airlines"
Pros: "Crew was bored, never smiled, obviously not Enjoying their jobs. Food was no better than any other airline, Which means it wasn’t very good. My small carry-on bag was 2 pounds overweight so they made me check it, they weigh every bag. We were looking forward to our flight because we had been told by several people that emirates Airline was special… It was not."
Pros: "we were travelling with kids. They pulled us from the back and put us in the front since our group of 6 had two small kids. They were extremely nice to us in athens."

Cons: "Flight was very delayed. Crew did very little to manage expectations or let us know why we were so delayed - on top of that, there was no special treatment for being delayed over 2 hours. Crew was polite, but not overly friendly or helpful."

Pros: "Received a flight credit"
Cons: "Emirates overbooked the flight and we were bumped."

From the very beginning of the flight when I was delayed in getting on board due to my poor orientation in the early morning staff was very courteous"
Cons: "There is nothing I have to report negatively. I flew for a 32 hour period from Windhoek to Ft. Lauderdale and arrived feeling refreshed. As we say in Kentucky. I was "fat and happy.""
Cons: "food was as good as it usually is."
Pros: "A380 is really comfortable even in economy and choice for entertainment is great"
Cons: "Crew are great during standard service runs such as meal / drinks but outside of assigned duties trying to get their attention is almost impossible as the are busy chatting. Pressed the cabin crew call button and took over 15 mins for someone to respond (and only after I caught someone's attention walking past - for the second time, the first person took my request then never reappeared). This despite at least 8 crew members walking past me."
Pros: "Crew couldn't have been friendlier!"
Cons: "The Business Class seats on the 777 are very narrow. Boarding the plane was tedious as it was far from the terminal and we had a long wait on the bus."
Pros: "the best all"
Cons: "the best in all"
Pros: "Overall everything was good."
Cons: "Poor check in services in Nairobi. I waited for 1 hour and half to get my boarding pass."

Cons: "19H i guess, window seat's screen was not working"
Cons: "Staff was amazing"
Pros: "Service has become repulsive and terrible that a frequent traveling in Emirates like me for past 15 years is considering to find an alternative."
Cons: "Service, the interior and almost everything is poorly managed. The inflight after ringing the call bell for 10 minutes, was disgruntled to attend to us, literally screamed at us saying she was busy in the back and we need to be patient. She took an additional 10 minutes to bring us some water. Her attitude was inexcusable and offensive. I have been a loyal flyer making at least 2 travels in a year with Emirates and I'm ready to switch now."
Pros: "Spacious sits and good food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Lousy seats No entertainment

The crew was attentive and had a pleasant demeanor. The checkin process was good but surprisingly your ticket counter did not have a CC machine to process payments. Calling in by your staff was a chore and the individual was visibly frustrated when on the other end they could not understand a 4 digit expiration date. The seats were very tight and uncomfortable. The food was minimal in quantity and just ok in quality and taste.

Pros: "Great crew & good complimentary food"
Cons: "More seat pitch"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and loved the food."
Cons: "For economy class, nothing."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Please make an announcement to passengers to not be dismissive if their surroundings. Passenger in front of me was has no regard for people behind him. Kept throwing himself in seat aggressively which cause water/food on trail to fall over. Thanks"
Pros: "Wonderful on board service from the crew"
Cons: "You could have had my luggage arrive. Now I don’t know where it is"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Good entertainment options"
Cons: "two of the three phone charge ports were not working I think the passenger seating areas may not have been deep cleaned"
Cons: "Delayed flight."
Pros: "3 - 2 seat arrangement and lots of leg room. Excellent boarding."
Cons: "Bread of sandwich was dry."
Pros: "It was a lovely easy flight, always lovely flying star alliance."
Cons: "Such a quick flight, everything was appropriate for that. Unsure exactly what would make it better"
Pros: "friendly and helpful crew"
Cons: "organise priority exit when we have a delayed arrival, so that those who have a train or flight connection can get out quicker"
Cons: "Boarding time needs to be longer. Also, too little time between connecting flights."
Cons: "Swiss precision"
Cons: "45mn late"
Pros: "Really good flight. Clean,on time, efficient. Early arrival even"
Pros: "Great friendly crew. Efficient systems."
Cons: "Tight seats. Very little leg room."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very understanding."
Cons: "I requested a basinet for my infant daughter and I paid a total of $98.93 extra, but on the plane they told me they didn't know anything about that and they didn't have any basinet. I called Swiss as soon as I landed, and I've told my request was sent but it was never confirmed. They also told me they will send me an email when the basinet for the return flight is confirmed. At this point, I'm not even sure what I paid the $98.93 for."
Cons: "I was asked to check my carry-on. I have used this carry-on more than 50x without an issue. I have even put it in the smaller compartments on smaller Bombardier jets. I don't have an issue with being asked to check luggage, but I resent being asked when others are allowed to take their carry-on onto to the plane without issue. Right in front of me while I was waiting for a baggage tag, others were being checked in with carry-on equal to mine and allowed to take it onto the plane. I can only surmise that my ticket limited me to one bag onto the plane, although they would not tell me this. This was not clear when I booked the ticket nor when I checked in on-line. I had a 40 minute connection in Zurich so was very concerned that my luggage would not make it. Luckily, it did make it to my next stop. Swiss Air seems to have different restrictions than other airlines which I have encountered before. I take ownership that I should be aware of a tickets restrictions but this was a multi-leg trip (5). However, I will tend to avoid Swiss air in the future, to avoid having to research their unique restrictions."
Pros: "Nice crew, lot of space"
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "The flight itself was pleasant. But a 3 hour delay, because of technical issues on the incoming flight from Geneva? Why didn’t they send another aircraft?"
Pros: "Lots of room because plane was half full"
Cons: "I arrived almost early enough to get on an earlier flight. I think if I'd pleaded a bit more..."
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "Great seat, wide enough for an adult and a 2 year old to sit in. Food was nice, but didn’t make you go wow."
Cons: "TV was a bit small"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, smaller aircraft"
Pros: "Crew memebers were so kind at all times. Even thou’ it was a short flight they gave us a free snack and beverages AND a bonus chocolate!"
Cons: "Nothing it was all great! Even music was playing while we waited on the plane."
Pros: "Kindness"
Pros: "Check in easy"
Cons: "Weren’t told enough about delays ... very tight seating crew was friendly"
Cons: "30 mins late both ways"
Pros: "Comfortable flight. The crew was very nice and amenities were fine."
Cons: "My luggage was lost. I had to wait in line forever to file a report. Luckily it was sent to my hotel later that evening."
Pros: "I’ve flown SWISS Air twice in the past 6 years and I’ve never had an issue, always a great experience!"
Pros: "Good clean service that Swiss is known for."
Cons: "There’s never overhead space for carryon. Ever since they went to lift, I have had to put my luggage in a row near the rear, making me wait until the plane almost complete Disembarks before able to get the bag."
Pros: "typical Swiss quality"
Cons: "Delay. Missed train connection. Business class went to row 15 To then leave it empty"
Pros: "Plane was comfortable (for a plane) and the staff were polite and efficient. The flight made up lots of time and the in flight snacks were very welcome."
Cons: "The flight was very delayed, and the communications from Swiss was lacking. In fact their app thought the flight had taken off and landed on time?!"
Cons: "1h45 departure delayed with no compensation."
Pros: "Boarding without frills. On-time departure. Overall good food. Great cabin crew; they took care of a toddler with a fever and her mother."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The plane was clean, on time, and the staff were professional and friendly."
Cons: "I opted for the pasta dinner and it was bland and mushy. Salad was boring iceberg lettuce."
Pros: "Attention to details from flight attendants"
Cons: "The food was not to my liking except for the crackers, ice cream and water!!"
Pros: "Very accommodating"
Pros: "Clean and efficient plane, crew and procedures."
Pros: "the entertainment selection was above an beyond."
Cons: "The food was really not great. The meals were tiny and low quality. I understand there are restrictions when on an aircraft, but the meals were the size of snacks and not understanding of allergies at all. (Ie, cheese was on everything.)"
Pros: "On time, even arrival 20 min earlier, very courteous and professional cabin crew comparing to the rudeness of Lufthansa one. Soft landing."
Cons: "At LHR terminal 2, same gate A, B, for 2 different flights which lead to confuse many passengers. Better signing and Public Announcement is needed. Queuing 1:30h for tax refund is totally unacceptable and leads to give up to claim your rights."
Pros: "No delays. Good boarding *but I have Senator status so I bypass lines). Food good even on short flight"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late. This is my second experience in a week with Swiss flights being 2-4 hours behind."
Pros: "What I liked is that they didn't really focus on the weight I had little more weight and they didn't really make an issue for me"

Pros: "It's fine no comment"
Pros: "The staff was courteous and pleasant"
Cons: "The exit seats were extremely cold, I had to put on my jacket gloves hat and ablanket Didn't eat dinner, breakfast was all sweet things"
Cons: "smooth & efficient friendly crew"
Cons: "They checked at the gate all our hand luggages to make sure we didnt exceed the 8 kilo mark. This is very cheap and only suitable for the low cost airlines. I expect swiss air as a higher class flight to turn a blind eye on this matter"

The ticketing staff were amazing and helpful. The crew was nice. Hopefully Turkish airlines can have more flights coming in and out from Dulles area

Cons: "The temperature was around 18 degrees.i asked several times if they can adjust it to normal the crew kept saying we will ask to pilot etc.no improvement. While facing covid i dont want to get cold!! Secondly no one checked for covid results while boarding and/or on check-in kiosks.i asked during boarding why they are not checking the reports the answer was they thought we had been checked during check-in.totaly fiasco and no alignement.i didnt want to get in a plane people with covid!!"
Pros: "The crew and the seat !"
Cons: "The food because of coronavirus the service was scaled back"
Cons: "The TV wasn't working and the crew I asked for help didn't do anything about it"
Cons: "Outstanding"
Pros: "Great"
Pros: "Efficient and on time."
Cons: "All fine."
Pros: "Punctuality. I also had an upgrade which was super great!"
Cons: "More choices of movies would be great for long hauls"
Pros: "Food is not bad"
Cons: "The staff told us our carry-ons are over weighted and forced us to check in 2 carry-ons and charged us 250USD! Our carry-ons are totally standard-sized but just weighted more than 8 kg. We have never encountered any airlines would rob costomers like this! Will NEVER ever fly Turkish airline again!"
Cons: "No Free WiFi in the airport, and the salad on the plane was taste-less. There was not entertainment device on the plane."
Pros: "check in..Gatwick S."
Cons: "cramped, breakfast was a disgust.tasteless omelette,soggy sandwich. a disgrace."
Pros: "Attractive business class fares. Among the best business class."
Cons: "Don't underestimate the additional hours. The stopover in Istanbul is definitely a negative (crowded, unpractical airport). Next time I will probably stick to European airlines, if the fare difference is reasonable."
Pros: "Really like the airline, sat in the front rim of economy. My husband is over 6ft and he was happy with the leg space. As was I since we flew right our 1 and a half year old boy."
Pros: "Good crew. Clean"
Cons: "A little late"
Pros: "Great choice of recently released movies."
Pros: "Entertainment options good"
Pros: "Largely pain free experience"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful & friendly. Cabin was well pressurized."
Pros: "Flight cancelled on whim of pilot due to a single faulty toilet."
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "There is simply nothing to like. Whilst other airlines give peoooe a nice hotel room to spend the night on their trunk flights, Turkish airlines offers."
Cons: "I didn’t like anything not least the fact you make people wait in the station when they are on flights with stops. It Morocco offers a plush hotel room. I’m never travelling"
Pros: "I loved the amount of attention and consoling that was given to an ailing elderly woman on my flight to Turkey! On my flight to Ghana the attendants were so gentle and provided a lot of ammenities. Oh and the hotel was an amazing experience and respite especially after the run-around at the airport. Thank you"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the run-around I was given in trying to find the hotel desk. “50 meters then turn left” was the anthem. All someone had to say was go outside the airport and you’ll find the hotel desk! Hehe thank you Turkish Airlines however! Thank you."
Cons: "I could not use my ticket I was trying to extension date but customer services terrible"
Pros: "The crew were accommodating, we departed on time, the inflight food was good and the entertaiment was varied."
Cons: "The leg room was a bit limited on long flight."
Pros: "It went all ok except the space between rows"

Cons: "Old style lie flat (but not horizontal) seats"
Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and food was amazing Thanks to chef and pilot. Everything was good If I get good price again I will definitely fly with Turkish all the time :)"
Cons: "The sounds of air was to much. I could hear the air outside and was bothering me."
Cons: "Not enough movie varities."
Pros: "Arriving safely"
Cons: "Seats horrible, food not eatable, poor service"
Cons: "I had my flight from London to Istanbul delayed and because I had connection flight in Istanbul to Russia they had to change my flight for the next day . That ruined my whole holidays and I had to go all the way home from Gatwick airport and next morning going again to Heathrow airport. No transfer or taxi was provided and No single apology from the staff or company . Very disappointed with Turkish airlines !"
Pros: "Many movies to watch. There are news channels like CNN to keep you updated with what las happening in the world."
Cons: "We had a connection at Istanbul. No laptop or notebook was allowed. A small portable charger to my iPhone was confisticated even thought it is smaller than my iPhone. Turkish TSA seemed a little confused with what to confisticate. They almost took away my portable shaver too. There were 4 little kids running around aisle during the flight forcing me to watch movies instead of sleep crossing the Atlantic Ocean."
Pros: "I like the punctuality of boarding time and taking off/landing time."
Cons: "The second meal wasn't exactly my taste."
Pros: "No real issues, we were served a decent meal, plane was new and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "Flight was severely delayed, not due to any fault of the airline but we were left sitting on board for 90 minutes with very little information m."
Pros: "Everything except they always arrive late. The food served was actually good. They have cut back on the food and beverages which they serve. But unlike Delta they serve more than water."
Pros: "The plane has a lot of restrooms"
Cons: "he crew was not available at all Time"
Cons: "I have bought two sides ticket from Turkish Airlines. And i miss my first flight, when i came to airport for return flight Turkish Airlines cancel my return flight whitout update by email or massage by phon!!"
Pros: "I ve travelled many times on Qatar ,Emirates,and jordanian air lines but the Turkish was the poorest and the worst .A limited choices and little food ,and these people on the airplane donot do their jobs properly .I hope it will be better next time if there is a next time ."
Cons: "delayed!"
Pros: "The entertainment choice and availability of USB port for charging was excellent."
Cons: "This leg of both of our flights (going and return) was quite cramped. Due to an unfortunate delay on our return flight, our overall day was extended from ~8 hours to 16 hours, and had us flying through the night--very unexpected and tiring. Additionally, although we requested kosher meals well in advance, the delay/cancellation of our flights and rebooking effectively cancelled our kosher meals and there was nothing for us to eat. This was very frustrating."
Pros: "Other than the late departure, everything else was excellent."
Cons: "Just the fact that we were some 40 minutes late, and this created panic among those passengers who had tight connections to Tehran, Tel-Aviv and Tbilisi. The rest was excellent!"
Pros: "The entertainment options, food, toiletry bag"
Cons: "Stuardess service is very poor. For a 13 hour flight I would expect to have more than 2 beverage visits. Also, I ended up taking my requests to a first class stuardress since the ladies in coach didn't respond to me. I was also appalled to have my connecting flight delayed for over 24 hours without proper notification."
Pros: "surpassed our expectation"
Pros: "great company."
Pros: "Easy to get exit row seat, very nice crews, good food incl. free wine."
Cons: "Istambul Intl. Airport: Wifi requires a code to be sent to a working cell phone. It never worked for me (and that on 6hrs+ layovers there) and obviously people with only a pc or iPad/ipod/iphone without working sim card are screwed. If you offer free wifi, don't add ridiculous requirements that no one can fulfill."
Pros: "flight was exactly as scheduled, flight attendance were extremly helpful and polite, food was good."
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "A lot of food and drink, toothbrush, slippers, etc."
Cons: "The audio jack didn't work well on my last flight and one attendant kept accidentally hitting my arm and getting my order wrong."
Cons: "First let me tell you that when I booked a flight to Istanbul from Brussels, I booked, so I thought, the airport called Istanbul Ataturk with the initials of IST. What I got was SAW after I paid for a booking that said IST. Sabina Gokcen is one hour away further on the Asian side of Turkey. I did not want this airport! There was nothing I could do about this but bite the bullet & accept what I got since I was not allowed to have any corrections made after paying for this ticket. I am highly disappointed with Kayak. The first time you have disappointed me greatly!"
Cons: "I wanted to upgrade called Kayak that out me through to VAYAMA that then called Turkish airlines. Took hours in the phone (international call) they then told me I can't upgrade (payed upgrade) because the business is FULL, guess what??? Business was EMPTY"
Pros: "Clean, orginzed, professional pilots"
Cons: "Too hot, few meal options"
Pros: "Food was fantastic. There were no delays. Very enjoyable."

Cons: "Not being to help on the ground in Copenhagen with delta issues"
Pros: "Seats were super comfortable, bigger than most planes with extra leg room. Food was excellent and fresh, amazing Dutch cheese sampler was divine. No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."

Cons: "Special meal request was overlook. I did not mind so much as eating less does some good! It is human to err!"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"

Cons: "Lost all our bags so couldn’t ski"
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "punctuality of boarding and flight time"
Cons: "attitude of crew in business class: no sense of true hospitality"
Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "Need better quality tvs for such a long flight and better movies There were only 4 Bollywood movies and not the latest ones either"
Pros: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."

Cons: "Aircraft returned to gate due to fault and was delayed for 45 min."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"

Cons: "I don’t like the limited choice of drinks on these short KLM flights."

Pros: "good service"
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Pros: "Wider seat than most business class"
Cons: "Row 6 in business is after the first 5 rows and Galley and restroom. Very awkward"
Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Cons: "Departure 40 mins late. I took this flight 2 weeks ago and it was also delayed."
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
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: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."
Pros: "Seat space was good for a short flight, inclusive of free snack and drink."
Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."
Pros: "captain was great."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Pros: "Except for my negative comment, a good flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, but due to the poor alignment of the seats with the actual windows, I actually sat next to a wall! Nol much to see out of a wall. If KLM are going to charge extra for a window seat, then they should make sure there is a window there! If the seat had actually had a window it would have been an excellent flight."
Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."
Pros: "Captain was updating us with the delay status."
Cons: "You have to be gold to get the priority boarding. In other countries I can do it with my silver status."
Cons: "I wasn't sitting next to my partner and we sat on the Tarmac for 45 minutes after the flight was already delayed by 30 minutes."
