Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I am a very tall man and was unable to have an exit row seat. It was not explained why just that they were not available. When I booked the flights I was told to get to the airport as early as possible as exit row seats cannot be booked."
Pros: "Everything...quick board,friendly crew,nice flight, good food, in flight entertainment was good....just a really nice airline to go with"
Pros: "on time, good planes, no problems, good food and service, bags arrived quickly, what else is there to hope for?"
Cons: "The flight originated in Tbilisi, and picks up more passengers in Baku. When we boarded the flight in Baku, the Tbilisi passengers had moved seats, so there was a lot of confusion with the Baku-boarding passengers as they had to convince the Tbilisi passengers to move back to their assigned seats. This led to some delays and general annoyance amongst the Baku-boarding passengers."
Pros: "Service Seat size / leg room."
Cons: "One hour delay on the Tarmac due to an air show."
Pros: "The in flight service was extremely poor. The cabin crew that attended to me were lazy and had a can't be bothered attitude. I was served a beverage in the can and was not provided with a cup iot asked whether I required ice. I asked for a coffee and was not provided with condiments. I specifically asked that I receive a chicken snack for my two years old daughter. The flight attended told me to wait! She took so long to get back to me that they ran out of my choice. I was cinsidering switching carriers to Qatar miles program however, this experience is making me second guess my decision. I hope I have a better experience flying Qatar in a couple of weeks!!"
Pros: "Food was better than average for many airlines. Staff was very polite and nice. Overall a good experience"
Cons: "When will airlines start to include seats that recline a lot more in coach, for 12+ hr flights?. At least 45 degrees. Is that too much to ask?"
Pros: "There was plenty of leg room, and the customer service was excellent."
Cons: "I was not allowed to pay for an upgrade."
Pros: "The punctuality of the airline to get all on board ahead of time, courteous and very helpful crew , pleasant check in arrangements, and overall nice ambience.... All these were enjoyable."
Cons: "Food could have been hot... Pre boarding announcement was not made. Boarding Zone lines were set up late.... and pre boarding of passengers with infants etc was done clumsily.... and actual boarding pass checking was done only by a single staff... The other staff were either simply missing or totally ineffective. In fact, the next Gate 16 flight (By Emirates Airlines) announcements were over done - around 25 announcements in the overall boarding process of 30 minutes... Contrast this with NIL announcements over the PA system for Qatar Airways.... Why this unplanned mess?"
Pros: "Finally the staggered deboarding. It feels like COVID has actually disciplined us passengers this time and kept us from behaving like unruly cattle once the plane halts."
Cons: "Initial confusion at boarding with paperwork and onward passage through Athens,GREECE. Once again the airport teams reached out to my colleagues and I ahead of time and managed to resolve to satisfaction. Perhaps reservation team can trigger a call to the passengers while they are still at home asking for the documentation validation electronically over a secured database.... just a thought. Again, being a part of the Experience and Innovation team, travel and tourism needs less human interaction, now more than ever. While we digitalized the obvious, the exceptions can remain humanized."
Pros: "Crew were so much helpful, really appreciate, my wife got sick, they have been amazing"
Cons: "Seats be little spacious"
Pros: "Staff were very good . Business class very comfortable. I had low salt menu which was very comforting to be able to choose as salt not good for me."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was could have been firmer and a little more space between the rows in economy would help greatly for comfort for all."
Pros: "Crews were excellent. Luggage came out very fast. Flight was very comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was nice but never got the menu."
Cons: "The crew was amazing and delightful but should provide food to kids first before even those special diet or vegetarians."
Cons: "Internet connection from Doha wasn't there,"
Pros: "seat was okay, far from comfortable, plane too cold, although they did have blankets, late boarding, no particular reason, it's probably not Qatar's fault, but baggage service at JFK was terrible."
Pros: "Nothing as such"
Cons: "Was in 9D both USB power and touch screen not working ."
Pros: "Crew was exceptional. QSuite very comfortable."
Pros: "Nice crew, 1 hr free WiFi"

Pros: "The Flight from Arusha was so convenient in the timing and it was perfect and on-time."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Great crew. Met every request and did a very professional, yet personal job."
Cons: "Overall meals were best I've had on flights. Did not care for last one but probably just a personal taste."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"
Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "I got an aisle seat. Bathrooms were not bad in terms of cleanliness."
Cons: "Service was ok. I was forgotten to be served items that other passengers were given. Seating ended up being kind of cramped as passenger in front was relaxing a bit too much. Entertainment was ok."
Pros: "Good leg space, friendly crew, excellent plane."
Cons: "This is for ALL airlines: It takes so long to get off the plane!"
Pros: "Plane was very empty so it allowed us to spread out."
Cons: "Cabin noise was loud. There was a high pitched whine throughout the whole trip."
Pros: "I haven't flown with Qatar for several years, but my memories of an exceptional experience were replicated. Fantastic modern aircraft, brilliant crew and great food."
Cons: "Only one minor gripe, the passengers seated behind me talked incessantly, making my attempts to sleep impossible. I asked if there were any ear plugs available, but none could be found. My own fault, I should have packed my own."
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The way the crew member woke me up for lunch or dinner time.They tapped my shoulder and was pretty disturbed me. If good if you have a sign that we can put next to our seat if we don’t want to be disturbed while we sleep."
Pros: "I took advantage of the upgrade offer, and it was well worth it."
Cons: "Too many mosquitoes, but I'm not sure how they could have stopped them coming on board."
Cons: "The website is not easy to navigate."
Pros: "Friendly service, and comfortable ride, will gladly fly again"
Pros: "The crew! Had a very bubbly and friend mostly Filipina crew that were extremely friendly and helpful. Having a nice smile certainly helps with the long flight duration!"
Cons: "Food food food"
Pros: "Dallas to Doha wheel chair service and boarding was good."
Cons: "My parents did not get wheel chair in Delhi after that long,tiring journey..this is the service airline provide,it's so disgusting..they didn't even get the porter..they had to carry the heavy luggage when they have problem in walking..I am so disappointed.what is the use of this survey."
Pros: "the crew as more customer friendly, and it appeared they really take care of customer, not just put some words on paper."
Cons: "i have requested the child meal on the web site and also requested the seat preferences, however when i boarded the flight, i came to know that they have only honored the seat preferences but not the food. on the serving menu, the veg option was available but we informed that the veg is available only if we have requested it on the web site, i had to survive with add-on food but not the real meal. crew were struggling to serve food for us."
Pros: "Fantastic. Crew was the best part! Very accommodating and nice. Looking forward to my next flight with them."
Pros: "i do like service in plane and at the counter no problem with baggage.all ok.thank for good service.sincerly vladimir hodan"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "Arrival and departure is on time treatment is excellent very courteous For all category of passenger"
Cons: "South Indian food may. Made available"
Pros: "The flight got delayed for 4.5 hours. We didnt receive any call, sms or email informing us about the delay. We went to the airport for checkin only to discover that it was delayed! No justification or any reason were given to us. We are travelling with a baby. We had to get a taxi to return to our home and return back to the airport after 4.5 hours. Called qatar airways and send them a xomplaint email. No one cared to answer. The worst flight ever. Will never go with qatar airways anymore"
Cons: "Delayed for 4.5 hours. Extremely bad customer service"
Pros: "Check-in was a breeze; considering this being an internationaly travel, baggage check-in process was fast and easy. Was in and out in about 5 minutes. Goodie bag was a good idea; the goodie bag contains an eye mask, mini tooth brush, paste, hand cream, etc. These all were great idea and definitely helpful. However this is ruined by the tooth paste. It was a tiny tooth paste, fair enough but the opening is sealed tight w/o a way to easily pry open. This was a total bad idea of packaging. Flight tips were also good idea and informational."
Cons: "Atlanta to Doha was about 14 hours flight. The seats were cramped and narrow (no side support) Seat cushion has been stripped down to bare minimum, so effectively you may not feel much of a cushion. Cramped legroom Seats felt like junk and I had started having leg cramps after few hours. This so disappointing for a premier airline like Qatar. Overall a very uncomfortable ride."
Cons: "While stay in Doha the did not give any food vochcher for 21 hours what they think no body eat in 21 hours I go to counter they refused next time I will not travel"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable for economy class for a journey as long as these ."
Pros: "best airline food ever"
Cons: "for an international carrier, leg room is horribly cramped. singapore airlines and qantas offer better leg room in their economy class seats."
Pros: "Comfort and Cleaniness."
Cons: "Food and ways to provide chairs - avoiding providing wheel chairs and food requirement."
Pros: "The crew were all lovely + meals were excellent."
Pros: "Staff excellent - Inflight screen useful."
Cons: "Could not do online Check in - apparently as there were 4 separate legs on my Ticket."
Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."
Pros: "Major issue: No information in advance of problems associated with transfer at Heathrow that required going from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3-- requireing a lot of walking, stress, time and security checks."
Pros: "Very attentive and friendly crew! The plane was nice and clean, nice purple tinted lights. They served us plenty of complementary meals, snacks, mints and drinks. The in flight entertainment was the best I've seen yet: movies, tv, music, games, all recent and easy to use. We will definitely fly Virgin Atlantic again!"
Pros: "The crew was very good with the passengers and attentive"
Cons: "The leg space is very tight, it was very hard to sit specially for longer flights it's not that comfortable"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Still in Detroit."
Pros: "Attentive, friendly crew"
Cons: "Delay, small seats"
Pros: "Very friendly and professional staff. Clean cabin."
Cons: "Not the most comfortable seats. Dinner not very tasty."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment system wasn't working well, and the flight was fairly bumpy (obviously something the airline couldn't do anything about)"
Pros: "A safe crossing over the Atlantic!"
Cons: "I queued at the Virgin Atlantic departure desk only to be told I had to walk to another terminal (the farthest one away) to queue for Delta Airlines. There was no mention of this on my e-ticket. Had I been elderly or unwell I would have been very upset. Delta is really the poor relation and does not even begin to compare to the journey I had to Boston on Virgin which was fantastic. Very disappointing but I was delighted to get to Heathrow safely."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, pleasant food and entertainment."
Cons: "Not being charged $1200 for a ticket that I already bought, but had been voided with no notice. And Virgin Atlantic staff not friendly or helpful in any way with this situation."
Pros: "Crew were super friendly and helpful. Food was delicious, comfortable seats, great selection of entertainment."
Cons: "Cheaper baggage rates"
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Food was good."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive...food selection was excellent"
Pros: "Most of it was of a reasonable standard."
Cons: "Plane was full"
Cons: "Seats were really old and outdated"
Pros: "The food was good. The lane was comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was nearly full, and the 767 is a large aircraft. I think it would be preferable if Virgin Atlantic would board the plane by zones, similar to other airlines."
Cons: "Getting home 5 hrs later than planned"
Pros: "I had one of the few empty seats next to me."
Cons: "The food is awful. Not enough toilets."
Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"
Pros: "My flight was canceled and Virgin Atlantic gave us a free room in the hotel Ramada. My next flight was at 18:55 and I asked Virgin Atlantic agent am I allowed to stay in the room until time for my flight comes, he confirmed yes and gave me breakfast, lunch, and dinner voucher. However, next day around 12 I got call from Front Desk that I have to leave my room right away because it's time to chack out and If I want to stay longer I have to pay. I called Virgin Atlantic agancy again and the agent run my information and said to me I can stayin the room longer. After that I called front desk to confirm that but they said they didn't hear anything from Virgin Atlantic and I have to leave the room by 1pm. All of this was really unpleasant!"
Cons: "I didn't like anything. I didn't like the communication between Virgin Atlantic with travelers, communication between Virgin Atlantic and hotel Ramada. Everything was really poorly."
Pros: "Everything except the food"
Cons: "The food is atrocious. Even if I have to pay to upgrade my meal, I would..."
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"
Pros: "Everything was good in this flight"
Pros: "I loved the in flight entertainment, and there was always so many snacks and drinks available for free!"
Cons: "For boarding, we had to walk a rather far distance due to construction."
Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "MEL/AKL 7/7 FLIGHT CANCELLED. NO NOTIFICATION SENT. Online system down. .....try later. Had to call Philippines. Eventually got transferred to Air NZ 777.Great flight .... would never use Virgin again. AKL/MEL FLIGHT 13/7 CHANGED FROM 6:30 TO 7:50 TO 8:10. No advice. Online system down. Unable to get updated status. 20mins call to Philippines. No apologies.Ended up on an A330 800 .No USB points. Got a seat, but everything from cushions to Coke had to be paid extra. At be slightly cheaper, but no better than Tiger"
Cons: "luggage never made it to Boston? Don't know who's fault it was.Problem was corrected."
Cons: "Seatback TV is of the worst quality among airlines. They really need to upgrade those. They don’t nearly give enough beverage and water. The gate wasn’t announced till last minute. There was no group priorities when boarding. Process was chaotic. Food was meh. No internet."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and attentive"
Cons: "The entertainment system was not good. The touch screen was not calibrated and very hard to select and scroll through. The flight was over a hour late so we missed our connection. Got rebooked okay, but after traveling for 18 hours having to wait three extra hours was a drag."
Pros: "The service, the drinks, the crew were friendly and professional. Entertainment choices were excellent.0"
Cons: "The space was a bit cramped and the poxket in front of the chair to jeep things was broken."
Pros: "Fast boarding and nice staff. Food selection was ok"
Cons: "One item missing from menu (unavailable). Issues with entertainment system. Bathrooms lacked moisturiser which is always very helpful on long flights where the air is dry"
Pros: "Lovely food and staff. Lots of food."
Cons: "The seat pocket in front of me was broken. I didn't want to make a fuss but one would have thought during checks pre-flight that should have been noticed and rectified. I was flying with my family including my 4 yr old and we had lots of toys to keep her entertained but had no where to put them apart from on our seats and tables when we were allowed to have them down."
Pros: "Nice airline, great crew and service."
Cons: "Leg room and space was great but the seats could use some more cushion."
Cons: "They switched my gate 5 times and lost my baggage."
Pros: "Safety. Service."
Cons: "Lavatory was icky and other passengers messy."
Pros: "Great Service. Truly enjoyed Economy plus!"
Pros: "Quite a big choice of movies and TV shows to watch, more than enough for an eight hour flight. Normal headphone plugs so you can use your own."
Cons: "I booked together with my wife, yet we were allocated seats apart and were not able to be reassigned together. The leg room was so tight that I could not pick up things off the floor without putting my head in the next persons lap. Though the cabin crew were smiley and friendly, it was hard to get their attention when needed. The PA system is much louder than the entertainment, so announcements were ear bursting. The dinner selections ran out early, so a good proportion did not get their choice."
Pros: "in flight experience is above average"
Cons: "The computer system really needs a lot of improvement. We were checking in with our infant daughter and it took 50 minutes to check in with a senior person helping the check in person and phone calls to their technical assistance. We were told an infant is difficult in their system, and our dual national daughter was another layer of complication."
Pros: "Met expectations."
Cons: "Things out of your control - time !!"
Pros: "Crew was professional."
Cons: "Couldn't stretch my right (window side) leg. Display quality was poor."
Pros: "The food was AMAZING. No, seriously. Everything we had was great."
Pros: "I was very impressed by the generosity you show concerning food och drink. the staff was kind and glad."
Cons: "I never understood how to connect the earphones to the screen so I couldn't ser any movie. But - I could have asked the staff of course ..."
Pros: "We paid extra for more legroom and it was totally worth it."
Cons: "The regular seats were so lacking in leg room that I could not cross my legs, reach the floor to get my glasses when I dropped them, or even get my carry-on out. There is no way to get into the "brace for impact position" with arms over your head and head in your lap! This is really unsafe, not to mention really uncomfortable. The flight was long, so comfort would be nice! Our first flight was regular seats and I was pretty miserable and I am a slender woman 5'6". The extra 3" was great, and we had to pay more on the return trip. The FAA should be investigating seat size and safety on planes."
Pros: "Hard product and food"
Cons: "Crew need to realise their voices travel and some conversations the whole upper cabin don't need to hear"
Pros: "The movie selections and comfortable headsets made it possible to watch three movies uninterrupted. The food selections were well prepared. Flight attendants were helpful and efficient."
Cons: "Boarding is always a bit of chaos when our seats are right in the back. People further up insist on boarding early and block the aisles in the process. Multiple levels of passport control and baggage checkout are chaotic, but that's for most all flights coming into USA? VIrgin/Delta handled it well enough. By the time we got through passport control in Boston ur bags were waiting and we had no problems at all."
Pros: "Neat plane, good food and service"
Cons: "The entertainment screen was very dark. To bad since there was an ample selection of movies."
Pros: "My flight was delayed boarding, Entertainment wasn't exciting oppose to other Virgin flights I have taken in previous years. Food wasn't great. I had teriyaki chicken with rice and I left it. Big dislike - when I was checking in online I found some economy seats I couldn't allocate for my seating due to additional charge applies. I think this is very off putting as I have been a Virgin member for years and it is very disappointing."
Cons: "I liked the Airbus carrier which had only two seats (window and Isle) on each sides oppose to three. It felt more comfortable."
Pros: "Food, crew and overall experience was good"
Cons: "Got assigned seats all the way in the back. They were comfortable but would have preferred better seats."
Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "Customer service not friendly, seats are not very good, no food or entertainment on a 3.5 hour flight. United just transports you from A to B for a high price."
Pros: "The crew was quite pleasant."
Cons: "The boarding process is very confusing. There are so many different boarding priorities and programs, it is difficult to know where you are in the boarding process. Even if you have a ticket labeled as Group 1, you may still be one of the last boarded because of all the different programs that have priority over you. Would be better to limit the advance boarding to people who need extra help and a single program. This leads to the question, why are there so many different programs? Wouldn't it be easier to have a single loyalty program? If you don't qualify for advance boarding because you did not purchase a first class seat, or you haven't reached the advance boarding requirements, you don't qualify. Let's start thinking about the customer again, and less on the profit margin. How would one of your executives feel if they had a boarding Group 2 and 85% of the plane was already boarded by the time your group was called, thereby limiting the space for your correct size carry-on? One more thing that would be beneficial, enforce the size limit for carry-on luggage. I have been to airports that limit the size with a box on the x-ray machine so you can not even get an oversized piece of luggage through security. Just one idea for the industry."
Pros: "The new plan"
Cons: "Toilet behind the last row."
Pros: "I liked the seating pace most of all for me being 6'7""
Cons: "I didn't like the eight dollars and change for Internet for a two hour flight. Really that rate should be based on the duration of the flight. That's fair."
Pros: "Everything was good about our flyet, the crew, the ride."
Cons: "We had two delays before departure, we had family waiting in salt lake for us for hours."
Cons: "Very bad air. Nothing the airline could do about that"
Pros: "Crew service"
Pros: "I didn't have to wait till eight to go home."
Cons: "Flight from Dallas delayed, missed my connection and got stuck by the engine of the next plane. If there wasn't room on that plane I would have waited until 8 for an opening. None of which was my fault but I felt no urge to ease my pains from the directory."
Pros: "Leg room, power outlet, inflt entertainment"
Cons: "Seat partner E seat apparently took my iPhone white cube plug that I had my phone plugged into at seat, not on floor, just gone, and she had an iPhone...what passengers act like these days is ridiculous. Also, she was too wide for her seat and "over flowed" into my seat so I had to lean to my right, could not sit up straight as she oozed under the armrest"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable"
"Charles de Gaulle airport sent us to 3 different gates and then delayed the flight by two hours, only to move it back to the original gate"
"I like that I got to my destination safely."
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "Nos trataron con mucha seguridad de higiene y nos sentimos muy seguras de viajar con ustedes muchas gracias"
Pros: "I was fortunately upgraded to 1st class. The flight attendant was adequate. However, did not live up to the level of service I have come to expect."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Fast boarding, quick flight, friendly attendants."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The boarding process was rough and haphazard"
Pros: "The Crew"
Cons: "No AC..."
Cons: "Freezing flight! So cold. From Atlanta to Pensacola in June, one should not freeze."
Pros: "Boarding was easy for a large number. Seats were comfortable. The crew was pleasant and attentive. The food was very good actually. Love the Mile High Tea!"
Pros: "Not much I liked"
Cons: "The crew were the worst Delta crew I’ve ever had. Sat 1st class and waited 1 hour from sitting in my seat untill I was offered a beverage. Asked for a snack and was told to wait until the basket was brought around, 20 minutes later. Asked for coffee, it was terrible and served with attitude."
Cons: "Way crowded even in comfort plus Flight very late leaving Missoula Got to SLC just as flight was boarding for LA"
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "We had mechanical problems and had to come back to Atlanta, get off our plane and get on another one"
Pros: "Everything except lack of internet connection AFTER paying $19.95"
Cons: "Not getting internet after paying $19.95"
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight due to delay and late arrival! No help getting seats on a later flight or next morning."
Pros: "We eventually got there"
Cons: "In Cleveland, the doors remained opened for about 30 minutes after they were supposed to close, and 6-7 people boarded. We then arrived in ATL quite a bit after we were scheduled to land."
Pros: "The great job the crew preformed."
Cons: "older plane - seats were not comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was excellent, pilots informative, and a very smooth and on time departure and arrival!"
Cons: "Sitting in the last row where my seat didn’t recline and it was loud and no window. It was claustrophobic!"
Pros: "My upgrade was fabulous!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation."
Pros: "The fact I arrived safely"
Cons: "Delayed 40 min then boarded the plane without pilots. Waited another 30 mins for pilots and by the time they got there and settled weather delayed. Sat on plane for another 30 mins then were finally let off the plane. Quiet announcements for reboard most passengers late. Then waited in line for take off for another 25 min. Whole thing was poorly executed. Would expect better from a large airline"
Cons: "Bad information about delays"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "Ac not working at last 30 minutes of flight."
Pros: "Crew was very good I would say that 5"
Cons: "This Delta flight did not have seat back screens to watch in flight entertainment. You needed to use your smartphone or tablet keeping in mind Amazon tablets won’t work. You needed to go to delta website and choose what want to watch the you needed to have Gogo Flight entertainment app already on smartphone and then would work. Not easy even for me a vivid user of tablets and smartphones. The seats had miniumal room available between seats it felt like I am on 5’qq so couldn’t imagine anyone taller that comfortable unless get first class. I even upgraded for “comfort” section which gave you a few inches extra. And wdith of chair me being a 36 waist was a little squeezed in. Crew was very good tho I will say that. But I laways fly JetBlue or Virgin America, or Alaskan Air for reason of more comfort and lower prices ticket but this time on flight close to my destination was Delta which I Flew for free, I would much rather buy ticket on the three others I fly if could have."
Cons: "We boarded on time and were ready to leave the gate early. Somehow the pilot and air traffic controller managed to take 1 hour for de ice and takeoff even though we were 2nd in the queue. No excuse!"
Pros: "Wouldn't know wasn't able to make it to the flight"
Cons: "The fact that for the second time in 2 months Delta issues kept me from making my flight"
Cons: "No help with baggage when boarding the plane, they hurry you up for nothing, because we had to wait 20 mi utes to take off."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and worked hard."
Cons: "Seats were very basic and not as good as the low cost carrier I normally fly out of the UK. Very old and noisy aircraft. Seemed little control over how much hand luggage passengers were bringing onto the aircraft."
Pros: "Crew Entertainment Service"
Cons: "Boarding on most airlines is a bit chaotic they always call out zones and often they aren't listed on your printed ticket otherwise was ok"
Pros: "Great service from the attendents and awesome movie selection"
Cons: "Seats not the most comfortable and boarding was sluggish."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "What I USED to like was the no hassle, no problems getting the tickets right through landing on the tarmac."
Cons: "I had a family emergency and because I had used a mileage ticket (as opposed to a paid ticket) I was told that I needed to give them 72 hours notice. I tried to explain that I had no control over the situation. It fell on deaf ears. I was so upset and frustrated that I could barely speak. My miles are now lost as the entire round trip ticket was cancelled and I have no way to regain all those miles that I wasted. It was the first time Delta did not come through for me and I must say, it's left a very bitter taste in my mouth. I couldn't believe that there isn't some provision (there is if I had paid for my ticket) and have lost all those miles that I use to fly Delta. So much for customer service."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Felt like a sardine . Just like ALL fights these days."
Cons: "When they called for passengers with infants and those who needed more time they also called for anyone who wanted to check their luggage. So of course people cut right in front of me as I was about to scan my pass. What is the point of asking us to come up if they are just going to let people jump in front of me."
Cons: "My flight got to New York so late!!!! I missed my international flight."
Pros: "the flight was on time and the staff very helpful"
Pros: "The crew addressed me by name"
Cons: "Wasn't lonng eough"
Pros: "Got us there on time. not much more can ask for on a short flight"
Cons: "Wish Delta offers more reasonable and available business class awards"
Pros: "Flights were cancelled that day due to a storm, but Lufthansa were able to fly an empty aircraft from Rome to fly us from London to Frankfurt. Despite the circumstances, Lufthansa were able to still offer catering. Thank you for your cimmitment."
Cons: "Lufthansa in general could invest a little more in the food they serve. Lufthansa's domestic and inter European flights are never a culinary highlight. :-("
Cons: "Most cramped seat I've ever sat in. Couldn't even sit because my knees hit the seat in front, before my but was in the chair."
Cons: "Lufthansa airline has no intention to help their passengers and happily see their passengers suffer from the airline's mistakes"
Pros: "Priority boarding with small kids"
Cons: "In London I was required to ask fro this priority boarding with kids if not asked I would be queuing with small kids for 15 minutes.. (whilst In Frankfurt we have been invited to be boarded as first ones without asking for it.)"
Pros: "On time, nice and professional personnel, kids-friendly, tasty & free food & drinks. Great airlines every time!"
Pros: "That my bag was at Johannesburg. My first flight was delayed due to a technical issue which meant I only had less than an hour until my connecting flight. It took me almost 20 minutes to walk to the gate just in time for boarding and was pleased that my bag had made it onto the same flight. There was loads of leg room in economy which as a tall person is really important."
Pros: "The flight was actually an Air Canada flight - a code share with Lufthansa. I had a good flight. The cabin crew were fantastic - very accommodating because I wasn't able to pre-select my vegetarian option online earlier due to the code share. They were very polite and professional. The seats were relatively comfortable and the movies onboard were aired and good. I would fly Air Canada again."
Cons: "I disliked the confusion with the code share. I have never flown a code share before an I was under the impression I was flying Lufthansa - not Air Canada. I really disliked not being able to check in online 24 hours before on either Lufthansa's site or Air Canada. That is ridiculous in this day and age - surely the two airlines can coordinate something were the traveller can check in online on one of the sites. Also, as a vegetarian, I wasn't able to select my meal - I had to hope that they had enough vegetarian meals to give me one. This is another problem thanks to the code share. If this is what code sharing is like, I won't be doing it again. No thanks. I'll book directly."
Pros: "Good flight, lovely service and on time!"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Delayed. Fairly basic and the food (a sandwich) was poor quality."
Pros: "I liked it all."
Cons: "No Gluten Free snack!"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Quality of all services are declining on Lufthansa."
Pros: "Plane was empty so got a whole row to myself!"
Cons: "One flight attendant in our area was not friendly and quite abrupt. Food wasn't good but desserts were great. American movies were a bit old."
Pros: "Crew was professional and helpful."
Cons: "Seat was narrow for business class."
Pros: "Uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "Seats, and helping passengers when they have delays"
Pros: "Everything was fine!"
Cons: "Everything was fine!"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and kind"
Cons: "Seats are small and not much legroom, like on all flights. I hadn’t found a way to pay for a checked bag online, so that process was a little awkward - had to leave my passport and boarding passes at the check in counter, walk to the ticketing counter, wait in line to pay, then walk back to the check in counter. But the staff was very friendly and kind."
Pros: "on time; boarding was smooth; leg space was good"
Cons: "wifi was not working; food was below average; movie selection options poor"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Should have been on time"
Pros: "The incoming pilot to Nice parked at the wrong gate and apparently, once parked, it could not be moved. So the airport had to scramble buses which made the flight depart more than an hour late. We had a 50-minute layover and Lufthansa did not hold the plane. So we got home a day late."
Cons: "They could have left Nice on time, or held the plane for us in Munich."
Pros: "Comfortable plan. crew, at least in our section of the plan was minimally attentive."
Cons: "crew could have been more attentive. other then the basic services no one made any effort to see if we wanted anything else."

Pros: "Great Experience."
Cons: "Great Experience"
Pros: "Fly is Ok"
Cons: "Fly is Ok"
Pros: "Love to fly Lufthansa, I never had a bad experience with them"
Cons: "Had a connecting flight, both were with Lufthansa. There was an hour between the two flights. We went straight to security and immediately to the boarding gate but they had closed the gate and would not let us board, even though there was 15 minutes before the flight was due to leave. We were refused a refund and had to move flights to another airport 2 hours away and then had a 5 hour delay. We lost our car reservation as we would arrive too late to collect, we also couldn't check in to our hotel as planned as the hotel only allow check in until 11pm; we would have got there at 1am, so then had to book another hotel for the night. Airport staff at Lufthansa told us they could not help and told us to go away!"
Pros: "There was a mechanical problem with my flight from Berlin, so I missed my connection to Atlanta. The agent booked me another flight on another airline flying out of a different city. If you travel enough eventually things happen. The airline was responsive in fixing the problem."
Cons: "The airline agent offered me a 10€ voucher to any where in the airport. While I was greatful, my time is worth more than 0.6€ an hour. An upgrade to Economy plus would have been better. There were 2 seats available."
Pros: "Food quality was good, and movies had a great selection. Boarding went quickly."
Cons: "We did not request special meals because in the past there has always been an option without cheese. For both legs of the trip, everything had cheese. They tasted great, but left my husband eating only bread. At the first meal the crew just shrugged their shoulders. Second meal they brought him a snack from business class, but it had cream cheese on the sandwich. Drinks were only served during the meals on an 8 hour flight. When crew came back through at the first meal, they only had two bottles of wine in hand offering top offs (no cart, just physically carrying the bottles). We do not drink alcohol. During the second meal I did not even see them offering the top offs. All other airlines have at least come through a couple of times offering water or soda. Announcements were only audible half the time. Customs forms were confusing for people passing through Canada. This might have been explained over the intercom, but again, it was hard to hear."
Pros: "They were great with service"
Cons: "Having to have to close my window shade so I couldn't see outside"
Pros: "The cheese sandwich was good."
Cons: "Flight left late. Airport employees weren't helpful. The plane was hot."
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Nothing positive to report...NOTHING!!"
Cons: "Worse travel day of my life. I'll never fly Lufthansa again and never go thru Frankfort again. Lost luggage both ways. Awful experience!!"
Cons: "pastry, not sandwich"
Pros: "Awesome. Very comfortable even in economy seats. Great entertainment"
Pros: "Professional, efficient, full, nice sandwich and coffee."
Pros: "Great staff, very attentive. Food was good. With all the people on the plane, our flight attendant remembered what we drank from the first time. Comfortable seats. Left late, but made up time and arrived right on schedule."
Pros: "Flying premier economy. Flight was on time...no crying babies. Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Long lines to get through boarding"
Pros: "Excellent flight attendant in charge of us."
Cons: "The galley where the snacks were looked more like a very dirty restaurant kitchen. It was absolutely gross with dirty forks, dirty glasses, overall grimy and dirty."
Pros: "Ease of boardibg and getting through security"
Pros: "The food was delicious."
Cons: "I missed my Lufthansa flight due to being parked away from the Frankfurt airport which caused us to be late, which caused me to be late to my already closely booked connecting flight. That was extremely inconvenient. Lufthansa was amazing at getting me a same day rebooking, but the UA plane I was booked on was a little older. I was already a bit sick with a head cold and the heating element was very dry heat.. it made everyone pretty miserable on the flight. I was a bit disappointed to have to be rescheduled off of Lufthansa."
Cons: "Sounds in TV doesn’t work"
Cons: "Needed more option in sports. Specifically Cricket"
Pros: "Loved flying business class. Great service! Flight was on time for departure and arrival."

Pros: "Service, entertainment, flight"
Cons: "The food was not tasty at all"
Pros: "Attentive crew. Smooth flight!"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "comfort, crew"
Cons: "long delay which made me miss my connecting flight, poor choice of on-board entertainment"
Cons: "They had overbooked the flight and asked to reroute me. I asked if I would still be able to get to my destination at the same time and to make sure I would have a window seat. Everything from the moment I said yes was a terrible. They rebooked me twice on two different routes when I was in the air. Said a steward would meet me (never happened) instead I was running to catch flights on different airlines in two different airports. The entire situation was disgusting. The running was with all of my luggage. Because of the rebooking I was in the last row of 75 rows on a plane with an additional connection. Every flight had delays creating more chaos for the next flight. The only helpful airline in the bunch was Delta."
Pros: "Flat bed seats 747 upper deck"
Cons: "Lost my luggage for 7 days"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good snacks. Timely updates about delays.cr"
Cons: "Crew forgot to serve several rows of seats including ours. Came around when reminded, but then said didn't have enough hands to carry trash away and told us to store cups, etc in back seat pocket when landing."
Pros: "Food was of a fairly high standard and so too was the entertainment. At least the Captain was honest in that he admitted KLM's baggage loading process was a mess and caused the delay."
Cons: "A baggage loading problem meant that all baggage needed to be offloaded and then re-loaded......this took 2 hours and then another 20 minute delay due to congestion with air traffic over France! Where were the cabin crew during the delay? They may have not been onboard given their lack of visibility during the delay. The only time they appeared was to distribute a cutlet of water and a packet of dry biscuits. Inflight, apart from the meal service routines, on this 13+ hour flight the crew were notable for not being visible."
Pros: "Service - Crew"
Pros: "The service is very good.Crew is very nice and flight on time."
Cons: "The food was inedible--from the chopped RAW potatoes to the slimey, tiny bit of pale turkey. It must have left a foul taste for the crew, too, since they were cold and unwelcoming."
Pros: "Soecial attention, tgey suggestvyiubhave some water. Ask yiuvif you are doing fine... All very welcoming. These guys got some pride in their job and that's nice. True hospitality in the air... Makes you feel at home... and they know what they are doing... Professionals!"
Pros: "We love flying with KLM as their flight staff are such a lovely bunch :-) Always ready to support. Actually they are proactive and will check in advance for your needs. Thumbs up guys! Keep up with the professional level."
Cons: "What I didn't like was that the monitor at my seat as it was broken. So for 12 hours I had not a chance to watch a movie or anything :-("
Pros: "Flight crew is very kind. Seats are confortable with plenty of legroom. Food is excellent and overall it was a beautiful experience."
Cons: "I was coming back from Cologne to Rome, 40 mins of delay on first flight Cologne - Amsterdam made us lose the second flight. Actually, they could have waited for us for say 10 mins and we would have made it. But they didn't and we had to stay a night in Amsterdam, arriving in Rome the next morning."
Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"

Pros: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"
Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Moved me up front in the plane so I could make my connection."
Cons: "Not having to walk outside in Edinbur4gh to board the flight."

Cons: "I wish they had WiFi"
Pros: "I love the food"
Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."
Pros: "Very pleased with KLM - efficiency all round and especially the baggage handling at Schipol swhere I had 20 minutes to transfer and my baggage came back with me to the UK which is no mean feat given the hustle and bustle of such a large airport"

Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."
Pros: "MCR airport Mert & Greet parking was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Cons: "old screens and entertainment system leg room to small"
Pros: "Crew where awesone and the choice of entertainment was fantastic"

Pros: "Staff very pleasant"

Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
