Inflight entertainment with electronic charging stations can help during a long flight.

The flight was delayed with no notice. No inflight entertainment. Communication is vital in any business.

Pros: "I was happy to avail of Wifi in the sky."
Cons: "No entertainment! For an major international flight, one expects some seatback entertainment"
Pros: "Crew members are extremely polite and friendly. Flight was delayed leaving Kigali captain spoke to each passenger and apologise - great professionalism."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."
Pros: "Took the newly opened route between Cape Town and Harare. Was a great experience. Thanks to RwandAir it is easier and cheaper to fly directly between these African cities. Lots of potential on the route. RwandAir really opening up business and leisure opportunities much needed in these areas. Nice to avoid Tambo airport."
Cons: "Both flights were slightly delayed (which happens), information about the delay could be better at Harare airport. But no biggy."
Pros: "The Flight attendants are all awesome and undesrtanding...and the open wifi ate Kigali airport was great."
Cons: "No vegetarian option Bad boarding procedures, no one gets direction and it was very slow"
Cons: "THERE WAS MEAT INSIDE MY "VEGETARIAN" MEAL!!! This is totally unacceptable!"
Pros: "The crew members are very polite and professional"
Cons: "The food is not very nice, the drink is don’t taste so great either . The airline seats are too small"
Pros: "I think that I appreciated all the details during the trip. As I get my kayak app in my IPhone, i firstly received a notice that the check in started.... At each step, I could see the time discounted through my phone"
Cons: "As I said, I liked everything. From the departure to the landing"
Cons: "Wifi shroud work . I got charged for it but couldn't use it ... hope to get a refund"
Pros: "The only good thing was the food."
Cons: "The flight from Karachi to Turkey was two hours late and the flight from Turkey to Houston was again two hours late. The seat was super uncomfortable. The plane was very crowded. Turkish airways need to reduce their ticket prices because they provide poor services to their passengers."
Pros: "I was feeling very bad during flight. Crew made everything possible to make this flight comfortable for me. They took good care of me and were stopping by me, to check how am I feeling during whole flight."
Cons: "This is not about airlines, but about passengers. All airlines should prohibit passengers to use fragrance. This lady who flew next to me, had strong perfume and it felt like she used half of the bottle, cause it was impossible to breath."
Cons: "Flight arrived 20 mins late. Luckily my connection is 12 hours later"
Pros: "I got upgraded to business class, only the fourth time in 60 years flying!"
Pros: "The food, comfort and wine on Turkish Airlines was wonderful."
Cons: "Turkish Airline’s needs to improve their online experience. Please just pay someone to fix it - you don’t have the city of Los Angeles as a option for home address. In case TA’s web developers are reading this, Los Angeles is the city with LAX in it. I guess you don’t have to know every city, but maybe download a complete list of cities and use that? There are lots of open source options and I can help you, if it gets confusing. Or, alternatively, allow users to type their city with a keyboard. Scrolling through every city in the state of California is not easier than typing Los Angeles. Especially when arriving at Los Gatos and thinking “wait... did I miss it?” That’s not the only thing wrong with your website, but start here. Look Turkish airlines is wonderful, I’m just saying that it was hell actually buying a ticket and signing up for your rewards program."
Pros: "almost nothing"
Cons: "The same food every time and its not high quality - even in Business class. The business class seats are uncomfortable, they don't recline far enough or provide adequate leg and foot support. The breakfast is not good at all and they seem to fry or provide stale croissants and danishes - they are always so hard and difficult to eat. the flight is always delayed and boarding chaotic."
Cons: "The food wasn’t good and the service the palet wasn’t very good"
Pros: "Quick assistance when connection flight messed"
Cons: "Too frequent delays. Both directions connection flight missed, due to delayed flight. Both delays seems happened due to landing queue load (plane rounded in air more than hour before landing)"
Pros: "This was my first time traveling with Turkish Airlines and the experience was awesome. The staff was very courteous from LAX till my final destination. The cabin crew was friendly and helpful, the flight entertainment system had new movies and television series. The best part of the journey for me was the chef greeting you when you board the plane. Overall a five-star experience."

Never boarded the flight, Chatdeal didn't confirm my last flight to SEA fron FRA, resulting in me boarding a different flight to EWR which got delayed and caused me to miss the flight to SEA

Flights have been completely changed with another airlines just a few hours before departure. New trip had a short connection time between flights and separate check-ins were required. The first flight was a bit delayed, so we had to pick up our luggage after the first flight, run to another terminal check in and drop off baggage again. We almost missed the second flight. That was painful!!!

Food was not good and it was not enough for a 9:45 mins flight

I paid for reserved seats with Lufthansa months before flying. Apparently no one relayed this to ticketing clerk as we were seated at the very back of the plane (row 46), next to restrooms and storage bins. Needless to say, we were unable to sleep for the entire overseas flight. We are returning October 11th via the same route and sincerely hope to have better accommodations.

Pros: "Young crew, with positive attitude and very kind and helpful."
Pros: "Excellent service, friendly crew, economy seat was ok even if I’m 6’ 1”"
Cons: "Food was not very good, inflight headset available but very, very low quality for such a noisy environment and their own headset plug would not match the plug type of the entertainment center!"
Pros: "Crew was nice, entertainment was excellent, seating just OK."
Cons: "I got to the gate 30 minutes before departure but they already gave my ticket to someone else. All this despite me coming from a connecting flight and having had checked in 24 hours in advance. Eventually I got my ticket back when someone else didn’t show up."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "I wasn't aware beforehand that I could request a dairy free meal."
Cons: "My bag was lost, exsept close I lost life-saving drags like insulin and other. I not live in Finland and don’t have there my medical record that can go in farmasy without medical prescription to buy medicin. Today is my 70 years burthday. This is a good present to celebrate. Thank you"
Cons: "The food on Lufthansa is terrible. Many crew members are rude and unaccomodating, even in business class. I will never pick Lufthansa if I have to fly business class again."

Got to workmen your boarding procedure and communication around that

Cons: "Delayed 24 hours due to a massive system failure on BA's part, we were stuck on an old 747 with tiny seats, a ridiculous seat pitch, mediocre food. At least it got us home."
Pros: "Nice friendly crew, happened to mention it was our anniversary and they kindly presented us with a glass of champagne from the posh end!"
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "No WiFi, no outlets and tiny screens. This plane had to be 20 years old. Embarrassing that BA hasn’t updated this plane with the simplest things. For a daytime flight over the Atlantic, I could get no work done at all."
Pros: "They sped up the flight time after leaving Chicago two hours late."
Cons: "We sat in the dark on the tarmac with the door open and below freezing temperatures with irregular updates as to the delay or expected arrival time. The flight details were not updated to say the flight would be delayed until after it was originally to have arrived in Milwaukee."
Pros: "The plane ride was fine. No food/drink for such a short flight, but I didn't expect it and didn't need it."
Cons: "It was slightly delayed taking off."
Pros: "BA always has a wonderful crew and I really enjoy flying with them!"
Cons: "One of my bags didn’t arrive. Hopefully it will be delivered to me as they promised ☹️"
Pros: "Everything was great. 777 has room and its comfy. This flight crew were outstanding!"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and food and drink good as on most flight to and from City Airport. Seats very comfortable compared to main fleet. City Flyer is still worth paying the extra which most flight by main fleet ex Heathrow or Gatwick are not."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and boarding not great as we were kept waiting in a hot bus outside the aircraft for 15 minutes"
Pros: "The entertainment this time was working. Always a bonus. Loos were kept clean."
Cons: "The younger staff are moody and sullen. If you don't like long hall flights change your job. BA your seats are SO old it's like sitting on a park bench for hours. I know we are in the lowest paid seats but it really isn't acceptable."

Our experience was terrible. Much of our itinerary was missing when we tried to reconfirm or when we arrived at the airport, even though the Kenya Airways App had us listed. By the time, it was sorted out, our flight from Livingstone to Nairobi was full. To meet our commitments (and get home), we had to find ground transport to Lusaka, purchase a one-way ticket for each of us to Nairobi, book an extra hotel night in both Lusaka and Nairobi, plus the cost of extra meals. For the 2 of us, we incurred over $1500 in extra expense. I filed a concern with the airline October 19, received a incident report number, but have not heard back as of November 2. It was a challenging and disappointing experience.

My flight was fine. The stewardess were wonderful. My bag is lost. I am in Madagascar. Please help. Can you help with refund I paid $110. I'm waiting for my sports equipment. Thanks

The boarding process was smooth and the seat quite comfortable. The snack served was tasty. There could have been better entertainment options available. The crew was quite courteous and friendly.

Pros: "The warm towel given for the hands and face at the beiginning was a nice surprise treat. Great also that blankets and headphones were provided."
Cons: "More food variety as some items ran out as they got to the back of the plane"
Pros: "Toilets were clean right up until landing"
Cons: "When breakfast was served, there was only the option of poached eggs. We asked if there was an alternative and Philip said No. Shortly after starting our cold poached eggs Philip brought the people across the aisle to us a sausage alternative?! All the flight attendants looked unhappy until getting off the plane. Entertainment was very basic and not really up to date."
Cons: "More legroom, seats with more cushion and recline, better food!"
Pros: "I liked when there was turbulent, the pilot told us that we should be calm as the plan was going to experience turbulent in a few moment"
Cons: "I felt like the queen cake had a lot of sugar, think of those who do not eat sugar"
Cons: "I’m really disappointed by Kenya airways, the flight was delayed for 4 hours, my luggage didn’t come along with. And the worst is i haven’t received it so far. I swear this is my last time to travel with Kenya airways, seriously I’m disappointed."
Pros: "Good service with friendly crew"
Cons: "Toilets clean but a bit worn out. Windows were very dirty inside and out."
Cons: "I find your company canceled my ticket from Kenya to Cairo for all my 7 tickets"
