Cons: Ca Needs to be more clear on who can get a transit entry , I with a US Passport didn't get one and stuck in pek airport for 25 hours ,
Cons: Comfort was not rated as high because space between me and seat in front of me was extremely tight and I'm not a big person. Otherwise flight was good, food better than expected and actually pretty good and entertainment had plenty of options
Pros: Yes they where excellent on everyway possible but the 1st hour of the flight was rough.
Pros: The crew was amazing. The food was pretty good as well.
Cons: Entertainment could have been better. The entire 12 hour flight from Los Angeles to Beijing, the audio on the entertainment system did not work. It was very unfortunate.
Cons: They should improve connections
Pros: Food was good. Crew was kind and gracious.
Cons: Seats were extremely cramped. Once the person in the front reclined their seat it was very difficult to get out of the seat. Also better guidance is needed during boarding. Finally, my hand carry was checked 4 times by 4 different people, which means your staff doesn’t trust their own colleagues.
Cons: They charged about $230 to convey my skis, compared to about $80 for the first bag. This is such ab unexpectedly big difference as to be a trap. Swiss Air are, in my opinion, con artists. Do not fly with them.
Pros: Swiss is always excellent
Pros: Great scenery!!!
Pros: Always like flying Swiss business class. Great service, good food and a great lie flat bed
Pros: Crew did their best to deal with the multiple delays.
Cons: Having a plane that was properly prepared to fly. Not stealing my Limoncello Cream and tape measure.

Pros: Great attentive service, good food and in-flight entertainment
Pros: Nobody are better hosts than the British. Great service, lovely people.
Cons: Unfortunately because the flight was delayed 2 times I was going to going to miss my connect flight to London. So I canceled my trip. I would appreciate a refund as I don’t understand what all the delays were about
Cons: Lufthansa is a bad airline. They are always late. Their service sucks.

Cons: The plane felt slightly outdated and was pretty loud the first part of the flight
Pros: great food, entertainment and seat comfort
Pros: The flight crew on the flight was amazing. Went beyond basic needs and requirements.
Cons: I have never been in a situation were a flight has been delayed due to the co-pilot suffering a knee injury prior to take off. A request for a doctor on board after an hour or so and then having to leave the plane and then re-board after about 40 minutes was quite bizarre.
Pros: Crew and food were great.
Cons: Old plane. Seats were super tiny and uncomfortable. Couldn’t sit in the same spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore.
Pros: Crew was nice and efficient
Cons: Economy seats don’t recline enough.
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
Cons: No downsides at all
Pros: The earphones for out two seats only worked intermittently, but the Purser, Lee-Ann handled it professionally and pleasantly. That was the only disappointment in an otherwise pleasant flight
Cons: The earphones could have worked!
Pros: Seating is tight. The crew was great !
Cons: As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights.
Pros: Like the overall KLM experience
Cons: Food could have had better quality and the stewardess served it all at once versus in the various courses.

Pros: much better than average food
Cons: shorter length flight but maybe little can be done,
Pros: Much better than average meals

Pros: seats are comfy fast boarding on time
Cons: not enough food
Pros: Economy class can’t be better.
Pros: flight crew is pleasant. cabin and toilets are clean.
Cons: I missed my connection to Washington DCA. Had to rebook for another overnight flight on United, which gets me into IAD in the morning. That is an extra expense for me. Hainan Airlines would not provide overnight accommodation in Seattle. poor selection of English language movies/TV
Pros: Everything in regards to Hainan.
Cons: I didnt like that Kayak.com said I had a return seat picked out. THEN went online to see I had no return seat even though one printed on e ticket. Had to call Hainan directly to fix it. Also didnt like that since I bought through Kayak.com I couldn't do 24 hour prior flight online check in. Only allowed to check in at the airport 3 hours prior to flight.
Pros: I thought the service, efficiency and kindness of the staff was top notch. They made the flight really enjoyable. Hainan does a lot to make sure you feel like you are getting a high quality experience even while flying economy.
Cons: I notice a few things around my seat that were kind of broken, which was surprising knowing that this was a new Dreamliner ... I thought certain things would not be as worn yet. Though I am sure it gets a tons of abuse! I also thought the food was sub-par and we always had a really hard time hearing any announcements because they were not clear, loud and English was challenging to decipher.
Pros: The crew members were great and very helpful. There was quite a bit of turbulence but the pilots did a great job. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of legroom in coach, it made for a pleasant trip.
Cons: We had to disboard on the tarmac and be bused to the terminal.
Pros: The food was good and the service was mostly good.
Cons: Our cabin was very warm and seats were uncomfortable.
Pros: excellent crew, food entertainment and seats
Cons: They were the best among the airlines I ever used
Cons: The flight from Washington DC to Istanbul was very comfortable but the flight from Istanbul to Lahore was very uncomfortable. It was not worth the money. Turkish air line should use better And newer airplanes between Istanbul and Lahore
Pros: The flight was good as well as the service
Cons: No complaints
Cons: Crew could have been more friendly.
Cons: 2 н in plane, then tecnicans search and fix problems
Pros: Was on time! Not croweded!
Pros: The crew was great!
Pros: Speed boarding process.
Cons: No entertainment system on a 3 hour flight...
Pros: Thank you
Pros: I really appreciated the upgrade
Pros: Very friendly crew, and great entertainment options.
Cons: Flight was absolutely full. Every full flight is inferior to every half-full flight. No room to lie down, no place to put stuff, waits for the bathrooms, long meal and drink service.
Pros: I am tall and was very happy with the leg room in economy class. Food was tasty.
Cons: Nothing really. Was completely satisfied.
Pros: In flight entertainment was excellent
Cons: My first flight the seat was towards the back and was smaller than others.
Pros: Major delay that caused me to miss a connecting flight. Food was also very mediocre (beef with chocolate sauce???) and many people in my flight were forced to check regulation carry ons for exorbitant fees. I would expect this kind of thing from a budget airline like Ryanair or something, but thought SAS could do better.
Pros: Really liked how much roomier the seats were to the previous flight with TAP (which had no entertainment system on a 7 hour flight).
Cons: Super critical, the plugs are really difficult to use.
Cons: I intensely disliked the 3 hour delay in Copenhagen!!! And that SAS offered the passengers in transit a meal voucher of only 50 danish Kronas, which was just enough to buy a tall Starbucks coffee drink but not enough to eat anything at the airport!
Pros: The total experience from check-in to disembark was extraordinary. The crew were beyond eager to please and extremely responsive. The food was hot and very tasted. The beverage selection was finominal. The cleanliness of the plane and restrooms, although the handle for one of the restrooms fell off the door.
Pros: Excellent short flight
Cons: Did not eat
Pros: One lady from the crew was amazing and very helpful
Cons: They destroyed our suitcase. At the beginning of our vacation it's very unpleasant and uncomfortable situation.
Cons: The check in counter service is terrible. Very unprofessional with terrible attitude. Can not pronounce the gate number clearly. After I clear up with him, he started gossiping with his colleague as it was my fault for not comprehending his English. How did Cathay Pacific become this way?
Pros: I paid $190 for extra legroom for an economy seat by an exit door, however the remote for the entertainment screen encroached an inch on the already VERY narrow seats - I'm six foot three and 215 pounds and both hips were in full pressing contact against the sides of the seat - TOO NARROW!
Cons: Seats too narrow in Economy.
Pros: One of the nicest crews I've had the pleasure of flying with
Cons: Nothing I could tell at the moment.....
Pros: Crew was very nice and did what they could.
Cons: Economy seats are so cramped that the couple (who were strangers to me) seated next to me (i was in the window seat) decided to 1) one would sleep prone on the floor in the foot portion of our row; and 2) the other would rest his head on ME and the armrest, stretching out on their seats. Greeeaat.
Cons: Xiamen reps at KUL didn’t let me board because they said my middle name on boarding pass didn’t match with the name on Chinese transit visa. I got this Chinese transit visa just to transfer because of the airport layout and that part was also didn’t make sense. They didn’t accept my middle “Y” on the boarding pass and it was so much of hassle to argue and finally let me through. Will never fly again on Xiamen.
Pros: The flight was fine
Cons: wrong food?
Pros: The crew was nice
Cons: Flights are never ontime
Pros: Crew was amazing especially for such a long flight. Nice to get food too. Great on flight entertainment
Cons: Breakfast was not nice. On line check in could have been easier.
Cons: They did not let me on the plane due to my middle name not being on my passport. This have never happened to me before in all my years of travel. Worse yet, Kayak (JustFly) did not give me any refund or change my flight. It was "their policy." I will never use JustFly or China Eastern again.
Pros: Great Entertainment
Cons: Depart on time there was over 45 min delay without an explanation
Pros: Entertainment options
Cons: On time flights and more patient flight attendants!
Cons: The entertainment is missing
Cons: Baggage delayed on arrival
Cons: Delayed, twice!
Cons: Took a very long time to empty the plane via staircases. For a 747, I expected a jetway at Heathrow.
Pros: Stress free trip - fine all round
Cons: Auto check in wouldn’t recognise passport (YET AGAIN- and not only mine)! Was seated to rear of aircraft and coffee trolly didn’t get to me before ‘seatbelts fastened for landing’ announcement..
