Cons: "the inflight staff needs to improve their behaviour in dealing with passengers. Some were quite rude. The aircraft seats were extremely cramped. The food selection was quite poor."
Cons: "The business class seats on Turkish fully recline which is my top criteria. The window seats don't have direct aisle access though. The food was good as always on the flight. The weakest part of their offering is in the entertainment area where the movies are out of date and the TV series haphazard."

Pros: "Food on flight was good, captain was good pilot"
Cons: "Flight from NY to Thessaloniki had a medical emergency. Plane was diverted to Manchester Airport in England to help patient on flight. This caused over 3.5 hour late arrival into Istanbul. This caused me to miss onnnection flight. There was very poor information or guidance by staff once we arrived into airport. I had to walk long long distances from the gate without assistance. I had requested wheelchair assistance considering I just had spinal cord surgery and In need of assistance. I was forced to stay over night in Istanbul and waited over 12 hours next day in airport for next available flight to Thessaloniki. I missed my brothers wedding night and could not be his best man for wedding from ordeal which was not fair! I also payed a premium price close to 1000k USA dollars for flight I could of booked many tickets with such a long layover and extra expenses buying a visa and food for half the fare I payed. This was not fair especially when a plane is diverted for medical emergency! To top it all off being a medical doctor I loaned and assisted staff with passenger and offered my consultation. services to emergency medical physician whom was called by crew for help and finally which reccomended to divert flight to Manchester to assist the passenger In crisis! Your welcome Turkish Airlbes Kindly Dr Tamir Kharouba MD"
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."
Cons: "Screaming babies"
Pros: "The landing"
Cons: "The crew nasty stwarts"
Pros: "All the staff was polit"
Cons: "We r a family of 5 and we did not seat together this Waht bothers the most of the trip that they couldn't put us together"
Cons: "seats a bit tight"
Pros: "Service was excellent Food was delicious..."
Cons: "Everything was perfect..."
Pros: "Turkish airlines is the only airlines I fly with for many reasons. Their quaility is a lot better than most of the airlines out there. ( I've flown with many) Although it does tend to be a little bit more expensive it's deffinetly worth it in my opinion."
Cons: "However, unfortunately I have noticed a decline in their service. The food was not as great as it usually is. I had salmon and it was very dry. With the amount of money given to the flight they could have paid attention to it more. It also happened to be my birthday on the flight and my friend who was flying with me called the airlines to ask if there was anything special that can be done. Happily they said that they did do celebrate birthdays and anniversarys. Sadly though nothing was done. Overall was it horrible I would say no but they are starting to loose quality"
Pros: "Everything was great. Service. Very comfortable. The staff was great"
Pros: "Crew, food, beverages, and entertainment were very good."
Cons: "Flight from JFK was delayed, and as a result we've lost our luggage. Unfortunately, Turkish airlines has no delivery service at Kharkiv, which is absolutely inconvenient."
Pros: "The seats were okay and entertainment was okay. But other than that -"
Cons: "Don't sit in row 27. You will be the last people on the plane served...unfortunately that means that the row behind gets food about 45 min before you do. And overall - it took about 4 hours to get our first meal."
Pros: "I have to say that I flew with different companies in my life, Turkish surprised me with the extra luggage and the quantity of food ( I am vegan and they gave me 2 yummy vegan meals). Also the sear were more comfortable than I expected"
Cons: "First of all the staff needs to work on their customers service. The flight was 1 hour and 45 min late and I had another flight to get in Istanbul to get to my final destination. I almost did not make it. The staff never gave us an explanation about what happened at the JFK I flew for 10 hours scared and stressed out. I asked the staff if it was possible at the time of landing to get out with the business class or somehow to get out before everybody else, but they were completely useless. Also in the middle of the flight a woman started feeling very bad. She had an intense migraine because of the high pressure, clearly the woman was not used to fly very often. The poor woman was ill and the entire crew was surrounding her. 7 ppl standing in the way of customers, a male attendant touched my shoulder with his private parts at least 5 times. Also every time they passed by the would hurt my shoulder or my arm with out even apologize. What kind of customer service is this? Forgetting about all the other passengers? Creating a situation of panick just because of how unprofessional they are? You can be the most comfortable or cheapest airline company and add all the luggage and food you want but if your crew doesn't know anything in customer service the customer will fly with a different company next time!"
Pros: "Ozan was a perfect attendant. Always asked us how we were and helped us when we needed anything."
Pros: "I really enjoyed having all of my concerns over delayed flights and possible missed connections rudely dismissed or outright ignored."
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late boarding and spent nearly 45 aboard the plane waiting to depart. No updates from the staff about our departure status or boarding status throughout the almost 2 hour delay. Got an email from Turkish airlines about this issue and they claim the flight was only 25 minutes late departing. Exaggerations occur sometimes when people are inconvenienced so I checked my call logs and social media accounts and found I completed multiple phone calls and status updates from New York over and hour after Turkish airlines tells me I left. One of us is lying and at this point I'm inclined to agree with facebook that I was still in JFK airport an hour after my flight was scheduled to leave when I updated my status to gripe about the delays."
Cons: "I t would have been much better to have a faster check in process"
Pros: "Almost everything but the checkin process at JFK with Turkish Air agent speaking poor English and casting doubt that everything is going to be fine with my trip. Instead she was reacting "the rules are changing every day" and didn't not weather I should need visa for my native country (?!) although I have showed I was born in that country (Macedonia) and the holders of US passports (which I am) -- do not need entry visa to that country. Everything else was good or excellent -- especially food and airplane crew."
Cons: "The checkin process at JFK with Turkish Air agent at JFK (New York) on May 24 - 2017."
Pros: "Price, Price, Price"
Cons: "Keep going KAyak"
Cons: "I have had flight from New York to Tel Aviv with connection through Istanbul. The flight from JFK got delayed and for unknown reason when arriving to the gate in Istanbul my seat was given to other passengers - though I came to the gate before the boarding was closed. I have never in my life received such a poor service. I was lied/misled/attacked by Turkish airline employees in the gate and in the transfer desk. I would never recommend taking Turkish airlines to anyone"
Pros: "Entertainment was great and so was the food. Boarding process was quick"
Cons: "You dont have your own air vent and regardless of how much money they make from your ticket, they try to conserve in air. Asked multiple times because myself and everyone around me were fanning themselves off, staff didn't care and temperature didn't change."
Pros: "Food and beverages, both choices and generosity of portions and quality, excellent. Entertainment made long trip very endurable."
Cons: "Rediculous chaotic check in at JFK. Standing in line an hour for a 40 minute delayed departure with virtually no communication from staff. As I had connection to make, was very unnerving."
Pros: "Great flight overall. Comfortable, nice amenities. Staff was polite and helpful."
Cons: "Did not like the carry on being based on weight instead of size. Also did not like that there was not a self check in kiosk."
Cons: "My incoming Turkish Airlines flight arrived late due to weather conditions in Istanbul. The handling of passengers who had missed connecting flights was poor. Very few staff new how to manage the situation, which resulted in long delays, very frustrated passengers and an overall very negative experience. I would avoid flying with Turkish Airlines if I could."
Pros: "The crew on the flight were very nice"
Cons: "As our first flight got delayed, me and 28 other pallengers flying to israel told the airline agents that we would miss our connection flightfrom turkey to israel. The supervisor assured us that we have nothing to worry about, as the second plane would wait as we are many passengers.however when we landed in turkey the connection flight had already left without us. When trying to speak to turkish airline representatives about getting a new flight, they were super UNhelpful, we waited in very long lines and were required so go to a few different parts of the airport to get a new ticket, a process that was not friendly at all and very frustrating. After about 2 hours of waiting on lines, i got a flight that required me to wait 7 hours in the airport and measley voucher for a very small fast food meal. When i asked to be admitted to the lounge (as i waited 7 hours in the airport due to the airlines mistake), they did not agree to grant me access. When i asked to at least get the wifi code from the lounge so i can tell my familly that i am stuck on turkey, this was also rejected. While waiting in the airport, i spoke to many other people on other flights who had been stuck in the airport under very simillar circumstances, some even worse than mine. I also have many friends who have experiences simillar experiences with turkish airlines. If you are looking for a reliable flight, that will get you to your destination on time and will help you out when a problem occurs, Turkish airlines is deffinetelly NOT the flight for you. I personally will never fly with them again after the way i was treated."
Cons: "The flight attendant was kind of rude. They ignored what I would say when the drinks came around. Also, one of them would try to hurry me and always tap on my shoulder instead of just saying "excuse me""
Pros: "Everyone was so sweet and they gave out eye masks which where super helpful. I was more comfortable on this flight then any other."
Cons: "It took a long time to board."
Cons: "Because of delay they left me to sleep on the airport in Istanbul. I am pregnant and nobody didn't wanted to help me at transfer desk. Last time in my life with Turkish Airlines."
Pros: "The food and staff were great. The seats were rather comfortable and the flight was very pleasant."
Cons: "The entertainment system was of an older style wherein we had a choice of 3 movies and 7 "radio stations" across 15 or so "TV channels" rather than the fuller suite of entertainment options I'm used to on a Turkish Airlines flight."
Pros: "Entertainment on long haul flights is top notch. Selection is incredible just bring your own headphones if you wanna be able to hear anything. Food is the best out of any other carrier. I've seriously been to full service restaurants with less tasty and well prepared foods."
Cons: "Seats are hilariously small. I know you're thinking "they're all like that." They're NOTHING like any other airlines. I've flown the following for reference: Lufthansa Air Swiss Delta Air France Air Arabia Saudi Airlines Egypt Air and a couple more I can't think of right now. I'm a very medium sized build and really short (5' 6") and I was so uncomfortable I wanted to (and probably will) cancel my return flight with them. My wife's back is still hurting from that flight. The staff are just plain awful save for 2 flight attendants. Out of 2 flights so far. I was told afterwards that this is commonplace when flying Turkish Airlines. For fairness sake I should mention that both Egypt Air and Saudi Airlines were worse. Whatever money you think you're saving by flying this atrocity you're gonna be spending on fixing your neck and back. Spend the extra and go with Swiss or even Delta. Avoid this rubbish"
Pros: "overall the flight was good. but it is unbelievable that someone else sat on my seat and the crew could not sort it out."
Cons: "the ground handling was not good."
"There was no special meal on board even though I spent hours on hold to request one!"
Pros: "Great staff , amazing dinner, and the entertainment screen size was best"
Cons: "Seats could be a little bigger"
Cons: "Frankfurt connecting flights, security, and Passport control are terribly inefficient, with unclear guides to get passengers from B gates to A gates."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Better food, some entertainment, better bathrooms"
Cons: "Food poor going to Munich , legroom poor."
Pros: "the crew was good , seat was not so comfortable"
Cons: "seat need to be more soft for a trip during 8h //"
Pros: "Excellent seats, excellent and friendly service:)"
Pros: "Everything except the checking in process"
Pros: "the airplane was brand new. l really like it and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The seats were not super comfortable in economy class. There was enough leg-room but the seat itself was not."
Pros: "Yes, everything was great"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and provided excellent service"
Cons: "The seat could have been a little bit more comfortable. Then again for a long trip, unless you are in business or first class, it's not going to be that comfortable."
Cons: "Fight could have been on time! It was over 45 minutes late, because of the crew"
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew, nice range of entertainment options."
Cons: "An economy seat is an economy seat ...."
Pros: "Touch screen is sharp and responsive."
Cons: "Food is ok. Used to be better a few years ago when the cuisine had a Southest Asian fusion style."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "The temperature on the airplane was uncomfortably warm. Not sure what was up with the AC but I had to change clothes and freshen up once arriving at my layover."
Cons: "The flight left 19 minutes early, stranding 7 people who were connecting from New Orleans. We ran across the entire airport and made it to the gate before departure time. The employee at Lufthansa Senator lounge was nice enough to tell us that the crew must have felt like leaving early. She was very nonchalant about the whole issue. She also refused to assist us, and told us we needed to exit the airport and reenter through the ticketing counter. I upheld my end of the deal by reaching the gate in time. This situation needs to be rectified."
Pros: "Greate service, good food, planty of legs room, everything on schedule and super comunication via email, text messeges!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and always there to help. They managed a 15min boarding due to being well organized."
Cons: "I’m 5’7 and my knees were touching the seat in front of me- there is no way to be comfortable. You pay an extravagant amount of money and get squished in there like sardines. It’s disappointing."
Pros: "Treated passengers well - even those of us in steerage. Food was excellent and entertainment options plentiful. Coach is still coach, and it’s hard to settle in for a nap. So, if arriving rested is important to you, spring for business class."
Pros: "Underseat AC power and USB power was the highlight of the trip."
Cons: "Food portions were tiny. Totally dehydrated at the end of the flight, and water was passed out in 100 mL servings. Insufficient space under the seat for a backpack."
Pros: "I wasn't expecting free in-flight movies and meals, which were very welcome"
Cons: "After usual perfect service from Luftahansa, I noticed that my lagguage was opened and destroyed."
Pros: "Impecable service. Even worth flying through FRA."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything, as always, great. Keep it up."
Cons: "This particular flight was delayed beyond reaching the next sep,so we have to rebook our flight threw Chicago in uncomfortable hurry."
Pros: "Boarding was made seamless. Seating legroom always seems to be better then others I have flown with. Food seems to be better too. The flight crew is very friendly!"
Cons: "Walked a very long way in Frankfurf airport to transfer to another flight."
Cons: "Frankfurt Airport is awful! Finding how to go thru immigration and being sent to three different places. Trying to figure out how to get to baggage claim. And the. Sorting out trains into the city. Worse than Charles de Gaul and I thought that was the real rock bottom."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Entertainment was frustrating"
Pros: "Service was very good, flight was very smooth"
Pros: "Restful flight"
Pros: "The service by the flight attendants was very good starting from the welcome to the end in spite of the fact that it was quite late night flight. Also by fortunate luck I had the chance to sleep as the next three seats to me were all empty in the middle block, which made the whole trip less exhaustive."
Cons: "If the seats next to me weren't empty and I couldn't lay down across all of them it would have been a difficult flight as the economy seats are not even close with economy comfort levels of other international airlines like Turkish Airlines especially the seat pitch size. Entertainment choices could be improved by more recent movies. There were very few selection."
Pros: "The in flight crew was great"
Cons: "I arrived a bit late to the airport. 5:15pm for a 6:05p for an international flight. I realize It is very late. I was delayed by donald trump protestors blocking the highway (not your fault). Dulles was a ghost town ( abnormally slow). All I had was carry-on. They said they closed the flight. They quoted me at $1800 for a one way ticket directly from Lufthansa. The original round trip was $900. I declined, sat down for 15 min booked another Lufthansa flight online for $800, checked in and was through security by 5:50. Just in time for my original flights last call. I could have made it easily. Boooo Lufthansa booo."
Pros: "The cabin crew was excellent all around, really made the experience a pleasure. Also very helpful when I couldn't locate my wallet as I was preparing to deplane, both in terms of helping me look and explaining what I could do if it didn't turn up (eventually it did, before I disembarked)."
Cons: "The seats, while relatively comfortable on their own, were really jammed in; it felt cramped even as a smaller adult. And the boarding process in Washington seemed to take a very long time."
Pros: "they were on-time and we got from IAD to FRA in one piece."
Cons: "you had to pay $35 ahead of time just to select your seats...they only allow 1 checked bag, half the flight was empty in eco plus but they still wanted you to pay to "upgrade", integration with UAL is cumbersome and difficult as you cant manage both legs of a UAL/LH flight from one carrier. Overall mediocre but hey - Cheap fares, you get what you pay for."
Pros: "Excellent service, on time arrival, a great experience! Everything was easy with Lufthansa, which soothed my jitters and helped me relax (as much as is possible!)"
Pros: "the two older female stewards spoke slow enough so I could understand. The customer service rep in the lobby was always friendly, knowlegeable and able to help me. For example, I did not know, when boarding, if we had to show our passports, but I asked him and we did not. I did not grasp the five levels of boarding he mentioned. I knew our group was not handicapped and we were economy, but I did not really know if we were group 4 or 5 to board."
Cons: "There was one female steward who made me take my carry on bag from the upper deck and store it below my seat so another lady's much, much larger bag would fit. Her bag was so large, I can't believe it met the standards. On the other hand, this procedure may be the way things work out,for the good of everyone, but it came as a surprise to me. To accomplish the task, she even asked another female to move her carry on from the rack above her to another several rows down. This lady's hair was too big for such a small plane. She talked way too fast in the first monologue. The plane seemed cheap and the sub airline had an air outlet that would not turn off and leaked with water mist. There was an air conditioner that also had a water vapor leak overhead, which my son said was a 'strip' which he could not control. We were seating in the back row. We noticed the plane was operated by Mesa airlines and the plane was assembled in Brazil, giving me a feeling of excessive cost cutting. Also, the pilot had an accent that sort of added to the 'Brazil' thing that he was not a native English speaker. However, he had a good landing at Atlanta near midnight. I did not feel I was on a real 'United' Airlines flight."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "excellent dinner selection movies and on screen entertainment were great"
Cons: "2 hour wait on tarmac in Dulles for weather no one in the crew could tell us where our connecting gait was or whether we would have enough time to make it"
Pros: "Everything was amazing Very pleased!"
Cons: "Good choice entertainment but system is slow to respond and crashed on a few occasions"
Pros: "Food was actually pretty good, and was plentiful. Comfortable seating."
Cons: "I don't think my tv worked."
Pros: "The flight was delayed two hours. I flew them 10 years ago and thought their seervice rivaled the Asian airlines. Now their service and seat comfort is near the cellar dwellars. The premium coach seat I paid extra for was the narrowest coach seat I have ever had the misfortune to sit in. I am a small man. 5'*8" 165lbs. The normal sized man next to me and I had to sit with our elbows pinned to our ribs. Eight hours of hell. I also had a totally irritating woman from syria behind me. She pushed and banged on my seat back the entire 8 hours. She had to have her loud mouth yapping most of the flight. That was the worse experience I have had flying. Also the attendents didnt care about me. I had to ask for tea. Had to ask three times as they were waalking off"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. The seat was tiny , cramped and uncomfortable. I travel a lot. This is the first negative review I have written in 55 years of flying."
Pros: "It got me to my destination. The onboard entertainment system was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. We were required to line up and have our cabin baggage measured in the sizing apparatus. Elite (*Gold) FF members were not told to board early and when I asked one agent she directed me to the general boarding lines; only the agent at desk told me to board with the First/Biz passengers. The food had no flavor at all."
Pros: "Nothing to like since it was cancelled"
Cons: "This was a very long day and when we were told the flight was cancelled and we should rebook there were 350 people being handled by 3 airline personnel and no organization or info was available to all of us in line. It took over an hour to get to talk with someone and then we had to wait for another half hour before we could get our voucher for a room and breakfast after having no dinner! Really bad, but the next day we had an easy flight, just got to our destination late and missed several tours we had booked."
Pros: "Unfortunately expectations on flights are so low that I am hesitant to say much. It got us there in one piece and I guess that is considered nice these days."
Cons: "I don't normally expect much of airplane food but this was a very low end food for an overseas 8 hour flight."
Cons: "EVERYTHING! They put us on a United flight. 11 hours on the plane with NO ENTERTAINMENT. They apologized at the end and told us to all fill out a complaint at united.com. I did and still haven't heard back. The flight attendants were rude and it was a horrible flight. Worst international flight I have taken in my life. And it was for an adoption appointment with a judge in Riga, and we barely made it."
Pros: "Efficient, early check in and seat selection was simple and done from home. Got to the airport early which is unusual for me but everything went smoothly and was relatively low stress."
Pros: "Everything else was fine."
Cons: "I had paid for comfort seats ($140) extra. When I checked in at gate I was given another seat assignment (without explanation). It turned out to not be comfort seat, in fact it was the last row in the airplane. Had to get eh gate agent back, which was not fast. She said flight was full and a family had been spread out. I understand, but you can't just bump me from a paid and selected seat to a standard seat, especially on transatlantic flight after paying $140 extra. There was no apology. She went back to gate and little while later came back with a comfort seat. Some people seem not to have shown up as the seat next to me stayed open as well. It was very poorly handled."
Pros: "The ice cream dessert"
Cons: "Old fashioned entertainment systems where you can't choose when you want to watch something you have to start watching at the same time as everyone. Flight advertised as Lufthansa was United both ways, there is a big difference between the service in both. United makes you pay to choose your seat like a budget carrier so everyone is angry about the seat they're in. Won't be flying them again if possible!"
Pros: "We purchase extra leg room seats which turned out not to be available. The crew understood our frustration and upgraded us to premium economy. Many thanks!"
Pros: "Amazing crew, fast boarding."
Cons: "Uninspired food. I was served the same meals 30 years ago."
Pros: "Crew on EWR to ARN was so-so. They lock restrooms at the back because they don't people hanging around the kitchen in the back. Also, the one cabin crew does not say Excuse Me when he needs to pass- he just touches you and pushes you aside Also, the one cabin crew"
Pros: "The onboarding process was awesome! The rest was mediocre at best. The cabin was friendly but not helpful. They had weird policies which we have never heard or seen elswhere. The flight had huge screens that won't turn off, it was freezing cold and the crew had no idea how to help."
Cons: "More knowledgeable crew and maybe more crew members, as there were too few and the service took more than 2 hours to complete. Never seen that happen on a 7 hour flight."
Pros: "Made it"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "Crew was business only."
Cons: "More engaged crew. The"
Pros: "On time. Arrive early. Smooth flight and landing."
Cons: "More meal options. Only chicken for dinner. I’m vegetarian."
Cons: "Checked bags left behind, no food, no drink."
Pros: "The movie section and food were very good"
Cons: "The temperature of the flight was out of control it was very hot for the full 9 hr there was something wrong with the plane and the crew was not addressing it."
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Gluten free meal was selected and paid for before the flight, but for some reason the crew didn't have the option available for me once on board. Nevertheless, they tried to be their best. More drink's without extra charge. Follow Lufthansa service and all will be grand."
Pros: "The airplane clean ,Food good etc."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight from Copenhagen to Geneva since flight from Newark left over an hour late.. They booked me on a flight to Zurich and then to Geneva. Had a connection to France booked separately that I had to move."
Pros: "Great legroom for premium seats. Even though not an emergency exit, bags need to go up, which doesn’t make sense at all."
Cons: "Seats itself uncomfortable for long flights. Boarding process could be better."
Pros: "Efficient and on-time service."
Cons: "Tiny seats that are inappropriate for international travel."
Cons: "Upon landing in EWR on United, per my reservation on this site my connection was on SAS to Copenhagen. Upon arrival in EWR, I received an email from this site saying my SAS flight "may be canceled". I immediately headed to the terminal where SAS was and went into the lounge to speak to an agent. The women I spoke to could not have been more rude. She told me my flight was canceled and that she did not have access to any details because that was United's responsibility. I told her that could not be the case because my flight was on SAS so if they canceled the flight, I would like to understand what my options are given that I had a tight window upon arrival into my final destination into Dubrovnik so I could not be too late in landing outside of my original reservation. She told me that I had to talk to United and did not even acknowledge why there was a cancellation or anything other than the SAS flight I was on was cancelled. She barely even helped me to understand where my luggage was which I was very concerned would be lost given the issue with the flight cancellation. As a result of all of this, it turns out I was put onto a United flight that now had MORE connections. I had to now go to Frankfurt to Vienna to Dubrovnik, all with really tight connections AND now I no longer was on the same flight as my friend who I was traveling with. SAS did not help with any of this or care to assist in ANY way. They told me it was out of their hands and I had to talk to United. AWFUL service when SAS had cancelled the flight! I had no choice but to take the re-routed flights. I ended up running to my gates and barely catching all of my connections which made for a very stressful travel experience to start my long awaited vacation. After paying the high cost I did for my flight, I am extremely frustrated with my experience as I ended up having more connections, tight connections, awful customer service and a really stressful trip. This is NOT would I would expect for how much I paid and out of the quality of an airline. I would like to receive some type of compensation for the extreme inconvenience of landing 3+ hours after my original arrival time, being broken up with my friend who I was traveling with, not being given any options for my travel, terrible customer service assistance, and no acknowledgement from SAS to help me in any way."
Pros: "On time and clean airline."
Cons: "Not helpful with stroller. Wanted us to sign off that they were not responsible for if stroller broke while handling it. Insane. They said it “might “ to big even though they didn’t know what measurements would be too big. We’ve flown for the last 3 years with this stroller but different airlines and never heard of such thing. (Since it’s the smallest city mini double stroller there is and folds flat- super small!) first time we flew SAS all. We didn’t sign anything and gate checked it and all was fine but some incompetent crew at check in. Not very helpful finding seats with all four of us. Put us in different rows. Could work on their customer service for sure."
Pros: "The 7 hr trip to Copenhagen was rough. The seats are too close together. My knees hit the seat in front of me even without reclining. When the seat in front of me reclined the tv screen was 6” away from my face. It was next to impossible to get out of the seat."
Pros: "Left on time. 50 minutes early in Copenhagen. Food was not bad."
Cons: "TSA at EWR was ridiculous. Slow lines and very inefficient."
Cons: "We arrived late in Copenhagen and I had 20 minutes to catch my connecting flight. Even though I was checked-in for the Copenhagen to Athens flight it left without me. I was then transferred through Prague to get to Athens and again missed my connecting flight through there. Now I am stuck in Prague looking for a flight to Athens and most likely will miss my next flight from Athens to Karpathos and will again be stuck in Athens because there are no flights out to Karpathos until 19 of May, 3days from now. I was physically in the Copenhagen airport and could have made that flight, I feel that since I was already checked in they should have waited for me and allowed me to board. Now I will Be missing work!"
Pros: "Very accommodating crew"
Cons: "I had a middle seat."
Pros: "All around everything was excellent. Will most likely always fly SAS between Riga and USA."
Pros: "The crew was great and the food as well"
Cons: "Boarding chaotic and Newark airport is very inconvenient. No signs to terminal B and the sky train with the compartment system is not very functional. I am tall person and sitting in the middle of the middle row was very inconvenient wilh not enough leg space."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged. Because we did not notice this until we got to our apartment we found that it is not possible to make acclaim, rather you just have to make a general complaint with a response according to SAS likely in 3 weeks. This process took over an hour of my time. The three tel numbers given to report damage are in Scandinavia and not much use when travelling within the UK."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Decent amount of overhead space. The pilot was friendly. USB ports for charging phones at the seat. Free bottle of water at your seat."
Cons: "No overhead fan. When flight got really hot, no way to moderate temperature. No choice of food at all, unless you are in economy plus. I don't remember the last time that a trans-Atlantic flight had at least a meant, or fish, or vegetarian dish. Usually, at least two or three dishes. On SAS, everything has to be ordered ahead of time. Some of the flight attendants were friendly, some not so friendly. No free alcoholic drinks even with dinner. Limited regular drinks - they are only served with food, aside from that you have to purchase even the non-alcoholic drinks. The food just wasn't very good, even compared to other airline food. Compared to other companies, relatively small selection of entertainment. I had considerably more choice on a domestic flight than on a 9 hr. international SAS flight. Storage pockets at the seat are pretty small."
Pros: "on time polite staff comfortable flights with free coffee"
Cons: "charging for bags"
Pros: "Excellent all around. Super smooth, friendly and fast!!"
Pros: "2 meals included for a 7 hour flight!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, the flight from Newark to Copenhagen was on new aircraft A340-300 I believe, it was very nice and comfortable even in coach as long as you have a compact body."
Cons: "That my Silver Star Alliance status got me nothing with SAS, no early boarding, no ability to select a seat until 24 hours before without paying an extra cost, if you wanted a beer you had to pay, this is a no frills airline now, pay as you go."
Pros: "Internet not working. Horrible."
Pros: "Every one from the check-in counter to the baggage claim was gracious, courteous and very interested in my well-being. It was quite a lovely experience.."
Cons: "No problems at all... a wonderful trip"
Pros: "Again, the flight was fine, and cabin crew was friendly"
Cons: "When I went to the SAS counter to print my boarding pass, the counter lady couldn't find my information. She left me at the counter and went inside to find out more info. Then when she came out, she started interrogating me forcefully, about why I got United involved with my check in for my first leg of the trip, because I am causing her to have all this extra work and etc. How dare she!!! First of all. I didn't want to involve United, the service counter at SAS was closed the entire time, and the flight on my first leg was operated by United, so i had no choice but to go to United. In fact I should be the one asking why I had to involve United in the first place. Where was SAS when I needed their help and guidance???? Why was their counter closed the entire time??? Such a poorly organized airline, I'll be wary to fly with SAS again."
Pros: "Nice TV's. Good selection"
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude to English speakers."
Pros: "Quick, efficient"
Cons: "Older plane, entertainment, & food"
Pros: "First time using SAS and very pleasant trip"
Pros: "I was running late for the flight due to bad traffic en route to the airport. Nonetheless, the staff was very understanding, and called me to the gate once I finally arrived to assign me a seat since I wasn't given one when I checked in online. They upgraded me without my asking... to an economy plus exit row, so I had lots of room during the 8 hour flight to Copenhagen. The plane was new - an Airbus A330 - and the flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Made it safely to destination"
Cons: "Series of unfortunate events: 1. No air vents in seats. Plane was very warm the entire flight. My husband and I spent 6+ hours sweating in our seats. 2. Dinner was not served until 9:30/10PM. By the time we received our food in the back, it was cold. 3. For guests who wanted to sleep during the red eye, the lights were not turned off until after dinner and cleanup, which meant only 2 or so hours of sleep in dark."
Cons: "Multiple maintenance delays and groundcrew forgot to load some bags so there was an even further delay. Flight was cramped too."
Cons: "Missed my flight due to weather east coast"
Pros: "The airline is very professional and the crew were very courteous."
Cons: "During my layover, the airline did not post the gate for my flight to Athens until an hour before, which caused me to have to run across the terminal to another set of gates."
Pros: "I was able to sleep most of the flight."
Cons: "Plane left Newark an hour late and I missed my connecting flight in Oslo. Once I did get on a flight from Oslo to Copenhagen, there was no room for my carry on luggage. The stewardess took it and said it would be put in cargo, but now they can't find it! Two bad experiences with SAS in a row. Don't want to use them again."
Pros: "I felt valued. The plane was clean and in good condition. The flight crew and attendants were very professional and took good care of the passengers. It was a quiet and stress-free travel experience."
Cons: "Can't think of a single thing."
Pros: "We got to sit in the emergency aisle so I can't complain about comfort. The staff was really friendly (although they were really rude on the way over 10 days earlier, so I guess we just got lucky with a nice crew for this one)."
Cons: "You only get one free non-alcoholic drink on this flight and that's really stingy for a 7+ hour a long haul. Drinks should be free on a long haul, especially non-alcoholic ones. There aren't any free small snacks like chips or peanuts. You have to pay for everything and the menu is exorbitantly over priced. It's a cheap and insulting customer strategy. They can save a few bucks in overhead on each customer this way, but they are losing money in the long run because I'll never book with them again due to their tawdry actions. I doubt I am alone."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Charge for drinks. TV broken no recompensatuon"
Cons: "No one from the flight crew gave us the border card. We waited in the border line only to be told once we reached the front that we needed to leave the line to fill one out. No guest on the Oslo to Edinburgh flight was given one."
Pros: "The food and movies were good."
Cons: "Didn't have enough money to sit in a seat with leg room."
Pros: "Plane was clean and comfortable"
Cons: "Seated by toilet which Ididn't realize"
Cons: "I wasn't able to take this flight due to my first leg being cancelled. However, I did end up being placed on the SAS flight to Stockholm from Chicago, which was an overall nice flight. The only thing I didn't like was the timing of the flight. Because my starting point was from somewhere other than Chicago, this made for a very long and tiring trip. I wouldn't recommend this flight for people flying from places other than Chicago."
Pros: "Passengers nice"
Cons: "Food options not everyone eats chicken"
Pros: "Flight is on time. Adequate amount of time to transfer. Boarding was smooth. On line check in site was simple and user friendly."
Cons: "Few selections of movies, and some have no subtitles. In order to select sests, I had to call."
Pros: "Excellent communication through email the few days before departures eg confirmation of flight,gate numbers ect. It was my first time with Kayak and will definitely not be my last."
Cons: "nothing !"
Cons: "Crew need to be smile - we not in Russia"
Pros: "Boarding process was easy and we made great time all the way from LAX to Madrid (I only had carry-on luggage so I can’t speak for their check-in process). Loved having a non-stop flight. Crew was attentive and professional. Great new movie selection. The one bathroom I went into was probably the largest airplane bathroom I’ve ever been in!"
Cons: "However, I would have taken a smaller lavatory if it meant larger/comfier seats! I was pretty uncomfortable the whole flight. The leg room was alright for me being 5’6” but I’m not sure how anyone much taller would fare. The seats themselves were similar to a budget domestic airline. Fine when you’re only going a few hours, but on a transatlantic flight it really started to get to my back :("
Cons: "Lost bags, dirty plane, seats switched from together with my wife on our honeymoon to seperate."
Pros: "Cabin crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Crappy plane for an international flight"
Pros: "Very timely, even cut the expected time of travel. Decent food, very friendly staff. Good entertainment choices."
Cons: "The seats and the lack of space"
Pros: "The premium economy does help for Long lights. Mine was BCN to OAK and being a y’all person the extra legroom was much appreciated. With the low cost of level I would fly again for sure"
Cons: "They ran out of the chicken meal"
Cons: "Few movies. Not good food options"
Cons: "movie selection very poor"
Pros: "Our flight was subcontracted through another airline, Level, so my comments are related to Level."
Cons: "I called the airline a week before our departure regarding the baggage fee. I was assured the fee was included in the price. However, at the time of check in, I was charged a $55 checked bag fee."
Cons: "Al llamar a Iberia(horas antes de nuestro vuelo)para informarles que por llegar a Venecia a bordo de un crucero y este no poder entrar a puerto en hora por motivos de la neblina y por esa razon no poder llegar en tiempo nosotros al vuelo,nos dijeron que no podiamos volar con ellos desde el vuelo de Madrid al otro dia a Miami y solo nos ofrecieron otro vuelo para 3 dias despues y con un precio bastante alto,conclusion que siendo una compania tan reconocida poco nos ayudaron, por no decir practicamente en nada,"
Cons: "In LAX the boarding was unorganized and confusing to board a bus to be transported to the plane."
Cons: "Had seat assignments, but the assignments were not honored at the airport, even though had paid external for early seat assignment."
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "They didn't even give out water on the flight. Not to happy with the service"
Cons: "The cramped space"
Pros: "Our flight to Bologna via Madrid on Iberia Airlines was wonderful from take off to landing! Friendly, courteous staff. Good food and entertainment."
Pros: "Decent flight"
Cons: "No snack, no drink, no entertainment - not the end of the world on a short flight, but they're categories you asked about"
Pros: "Food, entertainment (great monitors), new cabins."
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent. I appreciated the blanket, headphones, and pillow. One of the staff was very rude to the gentleman next to me because he asked for tea after she passed by with it the first time."
Pros: "The staff was OK for the most part. I liked the entertainment options and WIFI service was easily accessible."
Cons: "The seating was pretty bad. My seat couldn't recline (was in the last row) and the passenger in front of me reclined all the way back even when instructed to not recline so far (in passing, by flight attendants). So I spent an 11+ hour flight as a fairly tall person, in an extremely uncomfortable seating arrangement. I also noted my space issue with said passenger at the beginning of the flight and he still progressively went further back. I would've appreciated if flight attendants were more diligent about ensuring passengers are comfortable for long flights. Food accommodations were ok but they go heavy on bread for whatever reason."
Pros: "I liked the Crew they were very patient with all the passengers. They were bunch of really annoying kids in front of me and handled them very professionally."
Cons: "I didn't like that I could not control the air in business class. I spent good money to sit up there and I would expect to have control of the air because I had a 11 hr flight in a 90 degree plane. It was really a uncomfortable. Also I didn't like that their was no sporting events or cooking channels to watch on my flight and the movie selection were horrible."
Pros: "Nice people. New air plane Good movie Excellent service"
Cons: "Poor film and tv selection, the majority from Fox. That's very limiting. Ear buds very bad quality w sound inly comeing through one bud."
Pros: "Good and beverage selection was great"
Cons: "Delayed departure I'm 6'4" and business seat is small Also crew should improve kindness and attention."
Pros: "Flight from tel aviv to Madrid was awful. Bathroom was dirty and no hand soap. Ordere d a special meal and never came. It was so cramped you couldn't move. I was betwee 2 tall men who placed there legs under my seat. No direction for connection flight."
Cons: "My connection flight to use was better on americal"
Pros: "Great in flight experience! Cabin crew were very friendly and kind. Entertainment was awesome!"
Cons: "Food was delicious compared to most American airlines. However, portions were smaller. Seating is more narrow compared to standard non low-cost laung-haul airlines. You will not have a pleasant flight if you're a tall and/or a big person."
Pros: "Everything was above what I experienced with other airlines."
Cons: "No complimentary drinks, not even a glass of water. Check in was horrendous. I pre purchased luggage Check in but when I arrived in airport the automated system doesn't like to that piece of data. Didn't know that so was in a long line to use automated check in when I was supposed to be in an even longer line to have service personnel check me in. So finally after standing in both lines I did get checked in......."
Pros: "Overall I give the flight an average score, I like that everything was attended in a service oriented manner."
Cons: "I didn't like the aspect of lack of order at the airport specially when boarding, crew seemed a bit lost for a second there. In some respects I felt the plane had a dated feel to it; but then, I've never flown with Iberia before."
Pros: "Seat location"
Cons: "Staff was slow. Dirty food tray left at seat for over an hour. Food was terrible"
Pros: "Flight was early to Madrid (i.e. shorter duration than planned)."
Cons: "Not enough discipline in the boarding process. No enforcement of the carry-on luggage policy. People were bringing on 3-4 small bags and taking all of the overhead space."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "I could not cross my legs and my purse would not fit under the seat. Very uncomfortable flight. Fortunately they had a good selection of movies and TV shows to watch"
Pros: "The only part of this flight that was good was when I deplaned at the end"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. We sat in the plane waiting for 1.5 hours. Passengers were not addressed as to why we were not moving. During this time the air conditioning was off and it was too hot. The crew was very rude and nowhere to be found most of the flight. I was extremely thirsty and crew was upset when I asked for water"
Pros: "Everything flowed very smoothly desite the fact I had an irregularly shaped carry on. It was no problem, Staff were positive and acomodating and that lead to passengers being accommodating to each other. The intertainment was great, the only draws back is that I slept most of the time and wanted to watch another movie."
Cons: "That I had to bother the person sitting next to me to get up when I wanted to go tot the bathroom, but he was very accommodating"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 2 hours. Entertainment was non-existent. They offered us pretzels which is hardly an inspiring food choice. Prior to boarding the airplane the alarm got triggered in the gate were waiting in, took over 10 min for them to deactivate it. Staff were seen just casually standing around."
Pros: "Confirt of plane"
Cons: "Delayed flight when in runway, had to return to the terminal..."
Pros: "The flight overall was very comfortable and the crew were very accommodating and attentive."
Cons: "About halfway through the flight got diverted to drop off a critically ill passenger, so instead of it being an 11 hour flight, it was a 16.5 hour flight. Not anyone's fault, but still incredibly inconvenient."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Misplaced luggage. Long lines. Poor staffing. Had to give up food vouchers for delayed flight given long lines just to pick up vouchers. Long lines due to poor staffing."
Pros: "Direct flight with good entertainment system if you fly in one of the newer airplanes."
Cons: "Poor service. It seems most if not all Iberia staff are not happy to work for this airline, and definitely hot happy to work with people. My kids asked a few times why those people were upset (regarding both flight crew as well as ground crew). Online services to request seat assignments does not work. We tried to get seat assignments over the phone, and it seems Iberia only picks up the phone if you going to purchase a ticket, otherwise forget about getting help over the phone, and/or online (email as well as website). After trying to obtain child menus over the website and phone, I drove to the airport Iberia desk to order it there two days before the flight. The desk manager was helpful and requested for us to send an email with the request, so he could set it up once the flight opened up two days before the flight. I sent out the email to find out on the flight once food service started that the request was never placed."
Cons: "When I got on the plane there was urine on my seat and no one told me before I sat down. DISGUSTING"
Pros: "The organization, the food, the beverages the stewardesses all were pretty bad, even the flight was late the boarding process was bad, I would not use them again."
Pros: "Free entertainment (movies and games) during the 12 hour flight as well as 2 meals and one snack."
Cons: "Received 2 ham and cheese sandwiches (which became tiresome)...maybe an alternative like pb&j sandwich should be offered."
Pros: "Flight run smooth and they treat us well."
Cons: "Baggage lost."
Cons: "Hard to see how anything could have been done about this, but on my flight every seat was taken (except the one next to me) so I thought I'd have a little extra leg room....NOT!!! Then a 300-lb guy sits in the seat next to me. So for 11 hours I'm trapped by this guy's huge bulk and it was difficult to move my legs around any; very unpleasant. And I paid $45 to get that window seat instead of my original seat that had been randomly assigned!! I wish that airlines provided a couple seats for tall people, because our height is a kind of disability given the cramped seating (which average height people complain about)."
Cons: "The crew were not friendly; they were kind of brusque. They didn't smile much, and seemed annoyed by passengers."
Pros: "Promptness of flight. Comfortable seating. Excellent food and service."
Cons: "Personal entertainment unit did not work, making for a very long flight."
Cons: "Not only was the audio broken so we couldn't hear the movie, but our overhead light was broken (all around) so we couldn't read. Service was terrible; attendants seemed irritated at small requests. We'll never fly Iberia again"
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Lost luggage for now 2+ days costing me a lot of money to try to enjoy the trip and a friends wedding."
Pros: "That agents had another flight scheduled in case we missed our connection due to delay."
Cons: "That we were unable to make the connection, missed by only a few minutes which seems like more could have been done to help us get on. Would have liked to be given access to VIP lounge to relax and use wifi to communicate to others our delay to let them know we were okay. Voucher for lunch was at limited vendors, not easy to use. No water in toilet for washing, out of toilet paper."
"There was a two hour delay because of incompetence in scheduling fuel truck. Further, upon arrival in Roanoke, hand baggage was sent to baggage claim. We carry hand baggage because it contains valuable or sensitive materials that we do not want going through the baggage system. This is very poor and United needs to perform better."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing"
Cons: "A sealed blanket and a better customer service"
Pros: "service and timing were great"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. The crews were helpful."
Cons: "Cleaner bathroom on the plane."
Cons: "If we hadn't been delayed for an hour due to issues with late passengers Breakfast was minimal and not very good Entertainment options were limited Some of the crew seemed dismissive of African or African-presenting passengers"
Pros: "Nothing! We’re still in Baltimore"
Cons: "Brussels air cancelled our flight and didn’t rebook us on another until 25 hours later- so we lost a whole day of our trip. They were supposed to email me confirmation of the new flight and did not- I had to finally call Lufthansa to get it."
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful and the movies and space for the kids was great!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "economy seats...Space!"
Pros: "vegetarian dish was OK."
Cons: "entertainment was very poor. very limited selection of movies and tv shows."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew on the flights were polite"
Cons: "Checking in could be made easier by the airline communicating with the staff. They were not aware i had an email that i could check in luggage and they were not helpful or providing good customer services - unprofessional & inexperienced. Lost my luggage both ways."
Cons: "Three hour delay. Shifted all our plans and reservations. Upsetting. Made short seven hour flight a ten hour flight with sitting and waiting for three hours. We were hungry and tired and stuck. Kept getting mixed signals: to wait longer."
Cons: "The flight and its crew did well but I will NEVER use it again if it has to transit in Brussels. We were bussed to the T terminal ( ‘incidentally’ where were all the AFRICAN flights transit) were we had a 5 hour layover, which is fine with me, but the terminal has no restaurant or any decent stores."
Pros: "Made up tons of time en route."
Cons: "Usual 737 narrow-ish seat issues. Turbulence, but not a problem anyone could control."
Pros: "The flight itself was smooth and the crew kept passengers well informed. Beyond that, not much to report it serviced as a mode of transportation but not an experience."
Cons: "The seats were super cramped, hardly any leg room or elbow room which made it quite difficult to get comfortable for any length of time. The food was unpleasant. The flight attendants seemed very green."
Pros: "The crew at the gate as well as in the plane were tu nice and helpful."
Cons: "Juste the toilet were not so clean and smelled very bad."
Pros: "comfortable leg space"
Pros: "On our longer flight, we were thrilled- nice crew, delicious food, spacious, great pilot, and enjoyable entertainment experience. However, on our shorter flight from Brussels to telaviv, not only was the crew completely inattentive, but they were intentive to some very disturbing things including children who were pulling the hair of other customers and jumping up-and-down in the aisles of the airplane. There was no available entertainment whatsoever. In addition the food was extremely expensive and not particularly tasty. The plane was uncomfortable and smelled atrocious. These 2 vastly different experiences almost made me feel like I was taking 2 different airlines. Please keep consistency."
Cons: "I didn't like the inconsistency of the 2 different planes that I was on. If you are going to have entertainment you should have some form of it on all of your airplanes. The idea that food that you need to buy is so expensive is absurd. I was really blown away by how badly the plane smelled. It was almost as if I was in a bathroom. And on top of that I really felt very unsafe with children jumping up-and-down kicking people pulling their hair etc. While it isn't the job of the flight attendants to be parents, they certainly need to be aware of safety concerns for the rest of the passengers."
Pros: "Edficient boarding and pleasant onboard service"
Cons: "Cleanliness of plane and limited movies"
Pros: "Flying doesn't get much better"
Pros: "I don't think I liked anything about Brussels Airlines, compared to British Airways or American Airlines. The reason why I booked on Brussels Airlines was because American Airlines will only allow my family to check in luggage when we travelled to Accra in 2016. On our return flight on British Airways, we were allowed to check in bags and not 1"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and seating arrangements for my family was not well done."
Pros: "We did not die."
Cons: "Packed in like sardines. Flight attendant would not take the half full cup of coffee from me about 30 minutes before landing so I had to deal with not spilling it during deplaning. Connecting flight was 1hr and 40 min and they refused to give us water! Got to Budapest to find that the ticket Agent had routed three of our 4 bags to Budapest and one to Prague! How much worse could it possibly get!"
Cons: "Switched plane from Brussels to United which saves us 3hrs but then they lost our luggage. This was after we asked them to double-check. They told us that our luggage had been logged-in to our new flight. We are very disappointed in Brussel airline and will not use them again."
Pros: "Everything about the flight."
Cons: "Service for my mom was great!"
Pros: "No major issues. Crew provided help making a short connection at Brussels."
Cons: "Flight was slightly delayed. Entertainment selection was limited but OK. Seat comfort in coach is low, not much padding; but then, most airlines seem to think comfort is not needed in coach."
Cons: "Probably nothing to do with Brussels but the boarding out ot IAD was very unorganized."
Pros: "No frills quick boarding and helpful attendants, great English. Don't spill drinks on you unlike certain airlines (looking at you Air France) Decent in-flight entertainment system and comfortable plane (well, as far as you can get in an economy) Basically everything related to the actual flight was great."
Cons: "The fish entree was oversalted, but maybe that's how they eat fish in Belgium. In general airplane food took a huge nosedive in the last 10 years, so I'm not surprised."
Pros: "Flight departed on time and arrived early. Crew was accommodating and polite."
Cons: "Food selection and quality are below average compared to other international economy class flights. Disappointed to find no vegetarian options."
Pros: "Nice equip and staff, comfortable and on-time"
Cons: "Veg meal requested but not processed."
Cons: "I never flew to Florence because the airline missed my connection and the next flight to Florence was not until nearly twelve hours later, so now I'm on my way to Rome instead. This ruined my rental car and lodging reservations, and I'm now fighting both those agencies because of this botched flight and poor service. Additionally, the plane was ungodly hot. So much so that the crew apologized for our over the PA. Nothing was done to fix it, but it was blamed on the plane only being on auxiliary power while we were parked on the tarmac for the hours. That would've been understandable, but it didn't get better when the jet engines were on, so that excuse turned out to be just so many lies."
Pros: "It was on time, almost."
Cons: "They needlessly took our carry on luggage and checked it in, even though the dimensions were alright, and there was enough vacant and unused overhead space in the flight. The luggage took forever to arrive on the carousel, much to drones anxiety. Also, the gate information wasn't displayed on the TV screens.. Even though they knew it."
Pros: "Good seats."
Cons: "No infotainment screen."
Pros: "The food served was wonderful, as well as service."
Cons: "Half of my luggage was lost at Dullas, but found and returned the next day to my home."
Pros: "Flight from US was wonderful. Plane had everything you would want. Food was good and seats comfortable."
Cons: "Flight from Brussels to Kinshasa was different. It seems for the people of color, there was an old plane. My seat mate TV sCreek did not work. You could tell moldings on seat were very old. one bathroom had no soap, dispenser was broken. I hope this is not your pratice to use your older planes for those traveling to Africa. I will observe this as I travel back to Brussel and on to US."
Cons: "The aircraft was filthy, very dirty, especially the toilet and the sitting area. Terrible food. Very hot, AC did not work well. Outdated movies and TV series."
Cons: "All of it. Missed an event because of their delay. An event I paid for."
Pros: "Great food and nice crew. They had good tv shows."
Cons: "I don't have anything to complain about."
Cons: "Agents could b more organized to help reroute everyone. Instructions were not provided to collect our bags."
Cons: "the airbus apparently has warm spots, and could not avoid being too warm for international flight. Once arrived in Malaga, Spain, no signs whatsoever telling me to go to different baggage belt to find my luggage."
Cons: "I was unable to check-in online, Lufthansa said see Brussels Airlines and Vice Versa. The check in process at Dulles was very poor (this was the Brussels Airlines desk) Chaotic would sum it up best. The meal on the flight was very poor, even the staff apologized before I said anything, they were quite embarrassed. Hopefully the flight back on Lufthansa will be a huge improvement !!"
Pros: "Loved the entertainment options"
Cons: "Lost luggage, low food quality, long lines for transfers"
Pros: "The fight was fine. No issues."
Cons: "My biggest disappointment was that no one on the flight was informed that ALL the luggage checked in on the aircraft did not arrive in Budapest. Everyone (about 70-80 passengers) stood for a long while at Budapest Airport for baggage pickup, then went over to talk to Hungarian lost luggage personnel to file their baggage. Why didn't the airline tell us upon check-in, or even announce to the passengers on the aircraft that the bags had not been loaded? This would have saved everyone 10 hours later to try to figure out what happened."
Cons: "Brussels air used united Airlines for this leg of the trip. They canceled all the flights to my destination due to weather. However other airlines did make it there just fine. I think that they canceled the flight just because it was not full. I had to spend the night in the airport. The flight in the morning was overbooked. No one should fly UA if they can avoid them."
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. The food wasn't great and even on a flight that was at 75% capacity they ran out of food options."
Pros: "I liked that my seat was by the window and I saw the most beautiful sky in my life! And the seat next to me was empty so I was able to stretch my legs and even lay down to sleep. The crew was very attentive and knowledgeable. Food was very good, I was just glad that I was fed."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like is that turbine was blocking my view but I wasn't a big of a deal at all. I was just happy that all that long flight I was sitting by the window and was able to see the sunrise."
Pros: "Check in"
Cons: "Seats unbelievably uncomfortable. Not in terms of leg room, but rather they were just hard to sit on for more than 10 mins. Not hard and not soft just weird"
Pros: "The entertainment and the crew was great. The plane was of good size."
Cons: "The chairs were very uncomfortable. Any form of leaning was extraordinarily uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was polite, helpful, and professional. Food was very good, and more frequent than on some other transatlantic flights."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable--much less so than with other airlines on transatlantic flights. Also, the bathrooms were not very clean, and needed more attention during the flight. At one point, the toilet paper had run out and it was never replaced."
Pros: "Delightfully, there was enough leg room - didn't quite feel like a sardine."
Cons: "Bathrooms were not very clean."
Pros: "Crew was organized, courteous, knowledgeable Safety precautions were excellent considering timing of flight being just after Brussels airport opened."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable (More so than Coach on other airlines) Food was plentiful, but not good. Usually, I am not a picky eater, but of 8 snacks/meals, 8 were poor."
