Cons: "Qatar Airways check in at Heathrow was a dis-organised shambles. Arrival at Qatar Airport passport control was even worse at 12.45 am. Long queues,very slow to move, police checking passports unbelievably slowly. Retina scanners should speed up the process. Why then take 5 minutes to check each passport? Poor advert for Qatar, after nearly an hour of queuing I would think most passengers wished they had gone somewhere else."

Although pilot tries his best to reduce the delay time but still lost our connection flight. it is known that the whole operation is complex but still believe that effective cooperation by flight crew, ground personnel and others could result in a better outcome. the hotel chosen by the office at airport was not satisfactory. Qatar Airways customers deserve better treatment."

Cons: "Unable to listen to movies with their headphones - too much static"
Pros: "None....RBA shld give everyone a free voucher. Flight is supposed to arrive at 23:30. We landed 02:15. And they let people starved serving the snacks an hour late as promised. Then passengers were moved from one gate to another. It was inhumane and no explanations at all about the delay."

Cons: "Boarding usually late"
Pros: "legroom good despite A320 being much inferior to B387 Found an aisle seat helpful to older passenger flight on time cabin crew friendly and efficient selected fish meal.bangus..very good did not miss alcohol captain spoke normal English happy with travellers prayer good airbridge on arrival with nearby toilets pleasant arrival procedure for overnight stay"
Cons: "A 320 necessarily lowers the quality compared with dreamliner eg access to toilets and aisle width and entertainment system at manila the`woman at checkout spoke very poor english so had to repeat several times... and she expressed doubt about any seat vacant as`i was late in the queue.. she resolved this by passing me to her supervisor no other problems"
Pros: "Friendly crew, always available and happy to help"
Cons: "Boarding was late"
Pros: "Love the 787. Best windows best toilets, 3by 3 seating. Love daytime travel. Am senior and given bes t possible aisle seat. Friendly check in a t Melbourne. Super cabin crew all smiling and keen to assist...all very smart dress.Good movie selection on average screen. Good service pillows blankets. Above average lunch with quality beef. Good follwup refreshments. Good air quality. Good use of shaded window effect.Liked"
Cons: "Worst was slow moving line at Melbourne. Not enough check ins. Missed the tail and fuselage cameras on 780 and 750. Seat covers look cheap and worn. Coffee and orange flavour not best. Screens not best eg Cathay and Qatar. Women cabin crew good to dress islamic but too restrictive. No t easy th o hear captain messages. Seat design only average. Bandar airport ver y beautiful but need better restaurant."
Pros: "Super crew. Boarding full plane very efficient. Airbus A320 inadequte to serve great meal to full plane. Gangway too narrow. Big struggle for cabin crew. Captain message hrd to hear. On time. Good landing. Entertainment bad flip down screens not good enough."

Pros: "Gave me aisle seat, great service"
Pros: "Dreamliner appears to have more room, the seats recline to a greater angle, and it is not cold like a lot of other planes. Cabin crew were friendly, helpful and attentive. The break up of flight legs between Australia and U.K. into 3 legs of 7 or 8 hrs is a great alternative to the 1x9hr & 1x12hr."
Cons: "The entertainment system functionality is great, but choice was a bit poor, although numerous. Food generally quite good, only one meal I was disappointed with."
Cons: "The flight delayed for 5 hours and then cancelled. While I understand this happens, it was completely unorganized. They didn't have any plans to try to get people on other flights (passengers ended up organizing this), they provided a hotel but we had to sit there for over an hour while they tried to find one, and when trying to get flights gets the next day, staff was not proactive...the only way people got rebooked was if they told them what to do."
Pros: "The cabin crew were very friendly, organised and polite."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 20min from the outset as the pilot explained to all onboard that we weren't allowed to land early at Dubai airport. Towards the end of the flight the plane was delayed for over another hour as we circled the gulf waiting to land. This wouldn't have been so inconvenient if the lights were dimmed again as it was 2-3am local time and passengers wanted to sleep."
Pros: "The cabin crew were very friendly, organised and polite"

Pros: "Service with a smile. Great manners."
Cons: "Nothing. Great crew, food, flight."
Cons: "Everything was good except for the food. It was average"
Cons: "I like the flexibility of the staff re changing seats. Ground and air staff were very friendly Flight cost was cheap"
Pros: "Everything but mostly the leg room. Not sure if it's due to the airline type (Dream-liner) or just the seating arrangement but makes for a very comfortable long haul flight. Excellent wide screen entertainment system, not like the majority of aircraft with undersized and poor screen quality."
Pros: "Everything but mostly the leg room. Not sure if it's due to the airline type (Dream-liner) or just the seating arrangement but makes for a very comfortable long haul flight. Excellent wide screen entertainment system, not like the majority of aircraft with undersized and poor screen quality. And unlike previous comments, actually enjoyed the fact I had to disembark at Dubai on flight from Brunei to London allowing us all a chance to stretch our legs, go to the toilet and get a good cup of coffee."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The leg room was smaller than most other flights and the war phonejack didn't work and the video constantly paused every 30 seconds. Also the 1 8kilo bad allowance in the cabin is a bit unreasonable but I see why they need to because the overhead storage and under the sit storage was less than normal too."
Pros: "The flight and crew were excellent. Turkish Airlines business is always good."
Cons: "The delay leaving Heathrow was not so good.... missed connecting flight in Istanbul and no availability on the night flight. Had to re-book with Air Astana."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed and no reason Food very bad"
Pros: "Comfortable for that sort of journey"

Pros: "The food was quite good"
Cons: "The new type of aircraft - less room between seats, entertainment system was poor, online check in didn't work, when I got to the airport I was sent away for an hour - was unable to get my prefered seat (window) by the time I had returned."
Pros: "Rapidly becoming my airline of choice. Great service, comfortable and on time. Relatively new fleet and not cramped. Puts other national carriers (including BA) to shame"
Pros: "Nothing. How can anyone overbook a flight and want the passengers to pay the price. Food is horrible. Will never book with this airline again"
Cons: "Everything. Customer service is horrible"
Cons: "Good food"
Pros: "Infinitely superior to BA on the London to Istanbul route , in economy but especially so in business. Great entertainment whilst BA have non. Also full service meals in economy whereas BA make you pay on boatd"
Pros: "Business class cabin in the 777 was really spacious. Flight wasn’t full so I also had two seats to myself. Onboard chef was a beautiful touch and food was also delicious. Seats comfortable and IFE good."
Cons: "Heathrow T2 Business class checkin wasn’t clearly signed from entrance. If someone was next to me I would not have enjoyed not having aisle access. Water should be served more regularly without having to ask."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Long waits, poor communication, either too warm or too cold"
Pros: "Everything went well apart from my suitcase been lost on the connecting flights to Ercan."
Cons: "Eight hours waiting for a connecting flight at Istanbul airport."

Cons: "Nothing to dislike! My favorite airline."
Cons: "Ordered veggie meal didn't turn up!"
Pros: "They keep time and any delay is explained. Otherwise a good airline which I can recommend and will use it anytime."
Cons: "The food is dry like rice and beef is dry and the the pasta is too plain, just pasta and some blended tomatoes is not balanced"
Cons: "Staff at Business Class checkin walking off the desk when we tried to check in. The on-line check failed and that was the only reason to go to the counter, but, alas, it then took an hour to get things sorted because the single staff person just walked off because no one was there to relieve her."
Pros: "Very good customer service and entertainment"
Pros: "Service, food, and entertainment options were fantastic!"
Cons: "The process of having to check small electronics needs to be streamlined, but that's still new, so understandable"
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and they gave us direct flight back to Singapore in premium economy seats."
Cons: "This is our second experience of flights being cancelled via Turkish Airlines. Very disappointing customer care when flights get cancelled. Staff totally unprepared and untrained for such situations. We waited around for 6 hours before finding out on our own, that the flight was cancelled. The notice was not shown on the board. In all waited around at the airport for more than 10 hours before we were finally carted off to a small hotel near by at 1230am in the morning. Very little to no information given throughout the whole process, stranded with parched throats, no luggage, clean clothes or toothbrush."
Pros: "Efficiency and customer service"
Cons: "I didn't get s pre ordered kosher meal on 2 nd leg of my flight"
Pros: "Crew are always available and helpful"
Cons: "Food was dreadful. I thought I had chosen a seat online, but discovered I was in a middle seat. Having 3 seats on the sides makes it very difficult for the window seat occupant to maneuver."
Pros: "The entertainment specially the Turkish airline safety part"
Cons: "for short trip no need for mugabelat before food"
Pros: "Everything, it's just straightforward and good, the only thing I don't like it's no direct flights from my local airport, but if I have to go via Istanbul then Turkish airlines it's my preferred carrier."
Pros: "Boarding was on time, the crew was helpful."
Cons: "The entertaintment screen at my seat wasn't able to play videos. The comfort would be excellent if there would be a foot support."
Pros: "we arrived on time, as scheduled."
Cons: "I missed my flight and the customer service was so poor that I even missed the last flight of the day, and spent money for the hotel. They wouldn't issue me a hotel voucher."
Pros: "This is a government run airline with very poor customer service. I flew 6 flights in December, 2016 in business class - out of which 5 flights were late. There was no help at the transfer desk in Istanbul to get onto another flight as my connecting flight was missed because the original outbound flight was late. The customer service staff both at the lounge and the transfer desk were inept and rude and did not want to help. I shudder to think how economy passengers are treated."
Cons: "1) No organized boarding process - there is a general melee at the boarding gate with a lot of shoving and pushing. 2) Customer service staff are rude, incompetent and unhelpful 3) No recognition that customers are to be served 4) Food selection in business class was mediocre and poor 5) Old aircraft - on flight from Istanbul to London, business class was 3 abreast with the middle seat being used as a tray table. 6) Sleeper class is mediocre - seat width is poor and one cannot even turn on the side"
Pros: "Turkish crew members are usually very friendly."
Pros: "Food, entertainment, crew"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The grew was not very happy almost upset perhaps they were tired the ladies were okay but one of the men was very moody and unpleasant to be around"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant and did a superb job of making passengers feel welcome."
Cons: "My gripe is mostly with the ground staff. I was happily sitting in the lounge drinking copious amounts of hot tea due to an illness when my flights status changed on the monitor; "go to gate", it read. When I dutifully arrived at the gate, what was happening? Absolutely nothing. I sat there shivering for another 30 mins before boarding, my heat source (the tea) removed. The moral of the story is that a passenger's time has value, DO NOT waste it. In my case, the cost was physical agony of freezing on a mediterranean island in the summer while wearing 2 shirts, long pants, and double socks. If the ground staff did everything to procedure and are thus faultless, then the procedure is reprehensible and should be updated."
Cons: "15 hour stop over in Istanbul with the rudest, prejudiced airport staff ever!!!"
Cons: "This aircraft also wasn't peoperly cleaned. Another seat pocket filled with garbage and a stale smell of vomit."
Pros: "Doesn't matter where you're flying. If Turkish Airlines can get you there, even if it means overshooting your destination and backtracking, do it."
Pros: "They answered the phone quickly."
Cons: "I wanted to cancel my flight on Turkish as I was concerned about safety after the terrible attack there at IST. I was told that TK were changing tickets and issuing refunds for a period of 7 days after the attack - and I was scheduled to fly on day 8. They refused to refund or change - all they would say are 'fare fules' - 'fare rules'. When I passenger has a concern over personal safety, and in the aftermath of a large scale lapse in security at their main hub, they should be more understanding and not stand by their arbitrary 7 day rule."
Cons: "The flight tracker was the only thing we could watch on this flight."
Pros: "One of the best flight experiences I have had in a long time."
Pros: "On time. Comfortable. Clean. Efficient"
Cons: "No non dairy alternatives in food. Chicken was tough and stringy."
Cons: "There is no free Wi Fi on Ataturk airport. They claim 2 hours, but it doesn't support Croatian 385 country access nr."
Cons: "In food and comfort"
Pros: "The planes were clean and well maintained. The eye masks were cool - reversible with writing to do not disturb or wake for food."
Cons: "Staff all seemed like they didn’t want to be there. A menu for the food options so you know what you are choosing from - the staff didn’t know what they were serving. A snack/drinks bar to help yourself when you need through the flight."
Pros: "Amazing crew and excellent food and beverage choices"
Cons: "The seat were not adjustable and the snake were poor and no entertainment on board ... poor boarding with buses and arrived with buses"
Cons: "Off boarding in Abu Dhabi"
Cons: "Attentiveness of crew member . Movie selection could be better"
Pros: "Crew was super friendly and helpful. Had good seats, we were able to change them at bag drop. Smooth flight and good entertainment and food"
Cons: "Smooth & a v.comfortable flight!"
Pros: "Crew is ok. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Vegetarian food was terrible and of no quality. The inflight tamil and Hindi movies could have been better and newer."
Pros: "I flew economy Melbourne > Abu Dhabi and then Abu Dhabi to Melbourne. The first leg of the flight was great, the flight wasn’t full and I had a whole row to myself. The flight attendant even gave me some tips to ensure nobody sat there. This flight was on an A380 so the plane was large and it felt spacious."
Cons: "There are a number of things that Etihad do that just degrade the quality and experience of the flight and I probably wouldn’t fly with them again as a result. I’ve listed these below: 1) Entertainment system is poorly appointed and travel in two seperate months found that little had been refreshed on the in flight programs. 2) The entertainment system is deactivated until the seat belt sign is turned off, and is deactivated again about 30 minutes prior to landing. 3) You practically have to cut off your arm to get some water. I would always bring my own water on the flight, but Australian regulations prevent more than 100mls being carried on flight. 4) The service is inconsistent, some staff are just downright rude and others are incredibly friendly. The time waiting after pressing the call bell is excessive and in one case my drink never arrived. 5) Unlike other airlines, they don’t give you a “menu” to chose from for the inflight meal. Instead they just come around asking “Chicken, Lamb or vegetarian”, and lack any real understanding of what’s actually in the food. 6) When you order a drink, they open the can pour some into a cup but don’t give you the remainder in the can. 7) The inflight wifi is expensive. 19.95 USD for 180mb puts them at one of the most expensive. Overall, I would have expected a bit more from an airline such as Etihad."
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "The flight was not full. . I had 3 seats to myself. So very comfortable and the crew had plenty of time to give individual attention . The flight was very punctual. Arrived 20.minutes early ."
Cons: "The food was a little cold ."
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Lack of ability to cancel"
Cons: "Everything was good about the flight"
Pros: "Used their larger A380 plane Good boarding and inflight service"
Pros: "The flight attendants were mostly attentive to my needs not like a larger carrier. They were also very attractive . The boarding process was not all that bad and they waited for a flight that was coming in late verses just leaving the people stranded that was good as well."
Cons: "I ended up with a center center seat squished in like sardines. There was little to no comfort. Next time I'll pay for a upgraded seat or just fly another airlines. I'll probably never fly this airlines economy again."
Cons: "Poor service"
Pros: "Service Cleanliness Food"
Cons: "Toilet needed lotion moisturizers"
Pros: "Aircraft, crew, comfort, ground staff."
Cons: "Food and entertainment are average. Movies are old."
Pros: "Smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "No free internet service. Only one meal. Late departure, disorganized boarding. Uncomfortable seats. Limited choices of new movies. For a business class ticket, one would expect more! Especially since other regional carriers are providing two meals, free internet & more comfortable seats!"
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and friendly"
Pros: "The air staff were so good!!! So friendly and so attentive!!"
Cons: "I have checked my baggage allowance for this trip when I first paid and it was 2 checked in bags. However, I had to pay additional 185 Euros for adding my second checked in bag."
Pros: "first class service. Extra blanket, mealtime is anytime, seats recluned fully"
Cons: "no first class kit with socks. My feet get cold on the plane and the socks would have helped"
Cons: "Please, please, please Etihad, implement child-free zones on your flights."
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Being charged for extra weight when it use to be that weight .. I had no hand luggage and I noticed some people having three bags .. where's the justification in that"
Cons: "Etihad has gone downhill over the past few years and please consider this carrier as your last option for travel. They are simply not worth the money you save, considering the pain they make you sit through. Extremely poor service from the staff and they offer little to no option to you if the flight gets cancelled. They were not willing to accommodate my request to reroute to a new destination (which actually is cheaper than my original destination) as i was about to miss my consular appointment due to the flight cancellation and this was the only way I could make it. They outright said it's not possible, didn't even check if the flight to the new destination has availability or not. The staff especially at Heathrow is a joke, don't even bother reasoning with them."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Lots of food and drinks offered often and tasted pretty decent."
Cons: "I was given a baggage tag without any explanations on what that even means. It would have helped knowing I should keep it safe in case my luggage is misplaced or lost by Etihad- which is was! The seats are not that comfortable and I needed to stand a lot. Bathroom kept running out of soap and needed to wait long for staff to replace. Entertainment system was hard to use due to the person in front of me leaning their chair back the whole time so the screen was in my face."
Pros: "Unfortunately our flight from London to Abu Dhabi was delayed and we missed our connection through to Melbourne. However because of the way they hsndled this the delay turned out to be a blessing! Etihad put us up for the 12hour daytime delay in the magnificent Marriot Hotel in Abu Dhabi. The communication and transfer were handled very well. It was a painless process and we got to enjoy a lovely rest before being transferred back to the airport and flying home. Pretty much a faultless experience and one that would see me fly Etihad again without hesitation."
Cons: "Whilst the food at the hotel was amazing, the same cannot be said for the plane! The food was very ordinary. The chicken pie was barely edible. In terms of seating, the seats are pretty standard long-haul fare. There is limited room but the issue is cushioning. They feel pretty hard and it was difficult to be comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful , boarding was late but arrived in time."
Pros: "Good media system. Great staff."
Cons: "Bad food. No flying nannies. Layover was long."
Cons: "one and half hour late, barely made to the next flight!"
Cons: "The airline made it very clear that there is a class system and I felt like a refugee sitting in economy and was not fed well. Flight attendants were very good at ignoring your requests like it was fun."
Cons: "Food is always the same. Fish chicken and beef with different sauces. Wine list not that impressive for a five star airline"
Pros: "Etihad is the best airline on the planet. Certainly the best of the ME3."
Pros: "The airplane, the staff, the whole service."
Pros: "Punctuality, space, tv monitors in each seat and nice service"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful. The airplane was spacious."
Cons: "My luggage is lost. I have to wait for 3 days for it to get to my final destination. That is very upsetting."
Cons: "The flight is a 777 or 787. This is the flight has cramped up legroom in economy. It's a 17 hour flight and the aircraft is not comfortable at all in economy. The food is a hot or a miss. They have 3 items on the menu but chances are by the time they get to you they run out of the non veg options and you are stuck eating dal and pulav. Flight attendants on the flight were okay, not super helpful if you are traveling in economy"
Pros: "Food and entertainment are the two things I like about his airlines"
Cons: "Comfort, economy class really sucks in this airline"
Cons: "Didn't have a good choice."
Pros: "The very large windows and bathroom linoleum pattern were a nice change from what I'm used to with other Airbus and Boeing planes."
Cons: "The sink in the bathroom had a slow drainage issue and upon informing the crew, one attendant immediately went to check it out."
Pros: "The food was was alright."
Cons: "Major first flight to Abu Dhabi has been canceled. That took place around 5 hours. Then the whole journey has been rebooked and I reached the final destination after 10 hours of the previous schedule with lost baggage."
Pros: "Ground staff was good"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "i asked for vegetarian food but got crackers with egg. after seeing this, i didn't like to eat anything in that plane. Very careless about food."
Cons: "MH hospitality has gone down. Those days they were the best of the best. Now, there is hardly any hospitality at all. Very disappointing."
Cons: "Boarding on time so I didn’t have to loose the connection flight and had to stay at a hotel an hour away from kuala lumpur to barely sleep to catch a plane to auckland next day that arrives late so i cant take the ferry home."
Cons: "There were no vegan options available. I think that was my fault though because I did not set one up in advance. Would be nice if they offered one anyhow."
Cons: "If the assigned seat reclined. I had to Move to a different seat which Worked."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. The pilot landed the plane smoothly. Although had a delayed departure from KUL, we arrived in Sydney earlier than expected."
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Sadly one passenger in front of me talked loudly, for 7 hours straight, took an hour to sleep then talked again for the remaining 5 hours. Not airline fault"
Pros: "The seat was very nice position."
Pros: "Smooth process all the way from check in to seating to disembarkation"

Cons: "Toilets should never be wet."
Pros: "Economy seats arent different from other airlines. Flight was good in general"

Pros: "excellent staff"
Cons: "ship needed cleaning"
Pros: "Smooth flight, great entertainment"
Cons: "Whilst the main meal was ok, as far as breakfast on the LHR to KUL sector was concerned, by the time I was served my preference was no longer available. The crew member who served me made no attempt to see if another colleague had my preference available."
Cons: "Flight delayed, no head phones supplied and the food was burnt."
Cons: "Tight seating made it less comfortable than normal, and mechanical issues caused some delays."
Pros: "Attendants were kind."
Cons: "Frequent delays to flight timings, and it was hard to find where the flight gate was as I couldn't find one on the screen. It was a little bit crowded. No food was given (probably because it's only 50mins flight but I wished there were snacks or drinks given for us)"
Cons: "Concentrated orange juice? Seriously? Dated flight, seats, interior."
Cons: "Food was lousy"
Pros: "Rapid boarding"
Cons: "Food was not very nice"
Pros: "Service, free drinks, decent entertainment selection, and the food was actually a little better than edible, the best airline food Ive ever had (I haven't flown many long haul flights)"
Cons: "People don't stop growing at 5'8. There are people taller than that, in fact quite a lot of people are taller than that. So much in this world is made without this consideration in mind. I'm 6'1, I shouldn't have to pay hundreds more just so I have enough legroom. And I don't mean enough to swing my legs about as much as I want, just enough to be comfortable. This isn't essential on short flights, but just seems cruel to taller people on long flights."
Pros: "They provided us with a hotel to stay in until everything was arranged."
Cons: "No communications with KL that our flight was cancelled and marked me as a no show on my next flight. Which cancelled my next flights. I'm not too impressed."

Pros: "Liked the USB port for recharging electronic devices"
Cons: "Seats were too close together. Not very comfortable. We were in row in front of emergency exit. Seats didn't recline. We should be alerted when we select these seats that they are uncomfortable."
Pros: "the staff were pleasant"
Cons: "the food was ok as I like spicy. But one mouthful of water and a small wine. soft drink, etc was not enough on a 4 hour flight. Leg room was very bad. I am average hight 5 ft 10 inch but could only sit sideways aas not enough room"
Pros: "Good entertainment"

Pros: "Crew seems friendly."
Cons: "Business class food is not that good. Menu were not provided so when time to take the order, we have to decide quickly."
Pros: "Food, entertainment, staff and confort all up to the usual MAS standard"
Cons: "Plane was 45min late departing and I was meeting my partner connecting in KL. There was supposed to be a 2 hour layover - instead we almost missed my flight. Fortunately, he was able to hold the plane and I made it. My baggage didn't though - and was only delivered to the hotel at midnight after a convoluted process claiming it at Tan Son Nhat Airport. Not really good enough given we paid extra in order to be able to travel together. Pick up your game MAS - 2 planes out of the sky and you won't regain customers like this!"
Pros: "Movie story"
Pros: "This was a comfortable flight with nice staff and great food and entertainment choices"
Cons: "No 12 1/2 hour flight can be ideal but this was good deal."

Cons: "We had to wait very long for take off"
Pros: "They left on time"
Cons: "Website is a debacle, asked to preorder meals for business but can't, can't check in on line, business menu was limited, what was on the menu wasn't offered. Seats are uncomfortable, short & narrow. In general for the amount of money paid for business, it's the worst yet"
Pros: "I liked the crew, very polite and helpful."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I could not check in on-line. This made that I missed half a night of sleep in Darwin because I had to check in at 1AM, flying at 4.10AM."

Pros: "my family and I flew one way Singapore to London (15 hours 1 hour stopover in KL) for $1600 (all 4) Singapore Airlines or BA were $1800 per person. they are nicer airlines but not $5600 better. Airbus A380 was a bit tired but service was good. pretty painless trip all in all"
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "No newspapers"
Cons: "Second flight in a row for a one hour flight and we are delayed one hour. Better just go with a low cost airline then"
