It was a pleasure to travel with Turkish Airlines. Excellent food, entertainment, and staff, not to mention the little pouches with basic necessities for the flight and the safety bags. It really gives you the feeling that this company cares for the comfort and safety of their clients.
Pro: "Good service. Great price."
Pro: "The Airplane was good and the crew was very helpful."
Contra: "The route from Bucharest to Istanbul could be shorter and the way from the airplane to the airport could be through the jetway not through the uncomfortable buses."
Pro: "The crew did their best. The company, the policies, the times ... a different story."
Contra: "Stop boarding pets on a transatlantic 11.5 hours long flight - if the owners are nuts (although they swear they love their pets) air companies must be more responsible. The first air company that will refuse to cabin board pets will be my only company to fly for the rest of my life. Sometimes, saying NO is the right answer."
Pro: "The boarding, comfort and crew were excellent. Everything is very organized and professional."
Contra: "I had a 12 hour layover in Istanbul. The hotel was great and I appreciated the good food and rest. However, it took nearly an hour each way to the hotel. I think it would be great if Istanbul airways cooperated with the Yotel so transit passengers could stay in the airport. They helped me to get a visa and they say it will be reimbursed, but all of those things took time when I was so exhausted after a long flight. Overall, it was wonderful to have that opportunity to rest and shower on a long wait, but it would be even better if it was closer and it was clear ahead of time that a visa would be needed."
Pro: "Very professional !"
Contra: "The first coffee given at the beginning of the journey,was very good,(which is in general unusual during the flights), but the one given at the end of the trip was bad."
Pro: "The service and food are always fantastic. The staff really goes out of their way to make you feel welcomed and comfortable. The ticket price was fantastic too!"
Pro: "Onboard service was good -breakfast served was good."
Contra: "The seats are somewhat uncomfortable but OK for only a 1 h and 40 min flight"
Contra: "Dismal customer service"
Pro: "The plane :)"
Contra: "After a tech problem that kept the flight on the ground .. The rebooking staff were awful"
Pro: "Better than all others at this time."
Pro: "For once, on time departure. Quick boarding. Courteous service."
Contra: "Cabin a little too cold for passengers around me."
Contra: "because your flight from Sarajevo to Istanbul was delayed we missed the connection to the SFO flight and had to stay another 24 hours in Turkey + pay $60 for visas......this was a connection that you had scheduled!"
Pro: "Seat space continued to be better than BA. Nice surprise to get an evening meal on the last leg to Rome. I actually was able to sleep a bit on this smaller airplane as well. Crew went out of its way to help people board and load bags overhead. They seemed very attentive, and tried to provide extra drink options even."
Contra: "Boarding process at IST was a challenge. We left from a remote gate, and the agent didn't seem interested in the boarding process. I heard no announcements, maybe because it didn't matter as everyone was crowding the door 15 minutes before boarding began. The agent seemed perturbed, but I've seen it on almost every Italian bound flight. No one wants to wait. It is actually a bit amusing to watch the struggle between boarding policies and a group of people who seem determined to ignore them. The buses were also pretty well packed. More so in Rome than IST. Not much organization in loading at either place. After all the passport control they left us to walk outside to wait for the bus. Maybe you can tell I'm not a fan of remote gates."
Pro: "Boarding was completed very quickly. Flight arrived on time"
Contra: "Screens were very small Issue with with overhead space"
Contra: "Clientele on plane are junky. The crew is rude. Boarding is chaotic. No information about delays or why things are taking so long not shared. Planes feel old and dirty. Strongly do not recommend."
Pro: "On-time departure. very polite and friendly staff and we got there fast!"
Pro: "The seats reclining not only the back. The food very tasty."
Contra: "I think finding a way to empower the crew to explain to passangers who took the extra seats ( some up to 5 per person) the entire 12 hours, that they must switch at some point if asked. There weren’t willing to do it on their own( being civil is a learned skill) and refused to allow someone else to take a nep on the extra seats as if they had paid for it."
Pro: "Meal service on a short flight"
Contra: "This was a connection flight to telaviv, but I still had to go through security again. On top of that, once through security there was no food or drinks available while waiting to board."
Contra: "We had to spend the night in Istanbul and get only on the next flight the following morning. TK airport (ground) staff that talked to us was antipathetic and it took ages to get any service. Looks like they didn't care we about the delay, nor they were trying to help us. Just kept saying we need to wait."
Contra: "This’s the worse airlines that I ever use in my life, in my way back to Boston I get to the airport 2 and half hours before my flight, it was so crowded outside the door, so I didn’t get to check in till like an hour and 10 minutes, Guess what! They didn’t let me in because they close the gate they said?? They have me payed for another thicket to I take the next flight They are so weird, even when you called the customers service they will do nothing for you, like they don’t live in our planet!! Trust me stay away from this turkish airlines"
Contra: "The flight arrived late and Tipton Long to depart."
Pro: "Food, service, condition of the aircraft"
Contra: "Call or sms passengers . Waiting 4 hours and nobody at onboarding counter is not acceptable Plane acilities and meal under any expectations"
Pro: "Great seating & service"
Contra: "Non stop talking people behind me!!!!"
Pro: "Nothing. The flight never happened coastumwr service was very bad"
Contra: "The were not very helpful, I lost the plain and they refuse to change my dates. I am I elderly women and they took advantage. I was force to by one more ticket when I live from I very small income. So know my 3 months social security I have to pay the new ticket. No mony left for food or my medication."
Pro: "The service was impeccable!"
Contra: "Lost the bag and will return it . Still discussing with them after five days. Promising to deliver each day but then not doing it. Miserable experience and do not recommend using this airline."
Pro: "Setting, speed, arrival"
Contra: "Long queue at passport control"
Pro: "All of it best flying experience to date"
Pro: "The rear exit of the plane. The cabin crew were very attentive, almost too much. I brought my cat and she didn't get to sleep much. I appreciate that the attendants wanted to visit with her and give her their attention but it kept her from sleeping and woke me up. Since she had no proper place to use the bathroom she needed to be sleeping to keep her body clock in order."
Contra: "HOT AIRPORT AND PLANE...no overhead fan on the plane to cool off. Food not very tasty. My seat was switched after it was reserved to accommodate another passenger without my knowledge. The reason was not a valid one."
Contra: "leaving late"
Pro: "We liked how easy it was for English speakers - English announcements, English-speaking attendants, good signage at airports."
Contra: "Our luggage did not transfer in Istanbul (1 hour layover) and didn't arrive in Warsaw for nearly 48 hours (actually 45 hours)."
Pro: "Great staff!!"
Contra: "I was at the gate for my flight from Istanbul to Bucharest but 25 minutes before departure I noticed that passengers were lining up at a different gate so I asked what happened. I was told the flight had departed even though it was still 25 minutes before flight time. I then had to go to ticket sales where they charged me $425 dollars for the 80 minute flight to Bucharest. In the US, I would have been put on the next available flight fee of charge. I will never fly Turkish Airlines again."
Contra: "Nothing :D"
Pro: "The food was amazing."
Pro: "The crew was nice."
Contra: "We were in the plane over Istanbul airport for more than half an hour because we did not have the permission to land. That put a lot a pressure on us because we had less than 20 minutes to catch our connecting flight to US."
Contra: "On the San Francisco to Istanbul flight the food was a bit greasy. Otherwise good service from crew and company."
Pro: "The service and entertainment!"
Contra: "Announce too early boarding time, 50 minutes late for boarding."
Pro: "The food and the boarding was fast."
Contra: "Everything was great."
Pro: "It was nice to receive a meal on such a short flight."
Contra: "YOU destroy the traveler Luggage at this trip and there is some items missing . Thank you"
Pro: "The flight was good. The food was good and the air hostesses were courteous. There was fair leg space in the economy flight and entertainment was also good. However, the negatives far outweighed these positives."
Contra: "The layover arrangements were a shame. No proper accommodation was provided despite having over a 24 hour wait period. I along with other passengers were stacked in dorm style non barricaded rooms in 1.5ft wide beds like animals. It was in total poor taste. Half the Turkish Air employees I approached at the Airport for help with directions and clarifications were dismissive to the point of being obnoxious. Walking through the airport, all I could think was what a disorganized and hard to navigate airport it was. It was an unpleasant experience and I will never recommend Turkish Airline to anyone. It was my first Turkish air, and it will be my last."
Pro: "Comfort, good quality meal, on time"
Pro: "They gave us a meal on a 2.5 hour flight and we were very surprised!"
Contra: "They boarded late and you had to take a shuttle to the plan. We drove to the plane and waited for 15 minutes in the cramped shuttle while they were putting another staircase to the plane and finishing prepping it. We left a half an hour late and the flight was already at 10pm. It was a pretty terrible experience! And the section of the Istanbul airport we were in was pretty dirty. Also the movie they played had two language options but no English which was disappointing."
Expected A320neo as per the booking, got a 28 years old A321. Still no food service. Not impressed at all this time by Lufthansa.
Contra: "Flight was cancelled"
Pro: "I didn’t get the chance to experience the seats because I didn’t get to be on the flight due to a huge mistake of a Lufthansa employee"
Contra: "Hire better competent people!"
Pro: "We got an upgrade to business class and the experience was extraordinary. The service in general, but the warmth smile and courtesy of the flight attendants made the experience fantastic"
Pro: "Itinerary - hours of flight"
Contra: "Dinner could have been earlier"
Pro: "The punctuality and the entertainment"
Contra: "Perhaps a more organized boarding process"
Pro: "Lufthansa is an airline in a different class altogether. Can not compare with any commercial airline that flies to Europe"
Contra: "Great food, comfortable seats, enjoyed the whole 11 hour flight."
Pro: "We landed safely. I like the A380."
Contra: "One crew member in particular looked very frazzled and was rushing to do everything. They also took away my suitcase which would have very easily fit in the overhead."
Pro: "In-flight crew was friendly, the food & beverages were OK and there were plenty of in-flight entertainment options."
Contra: "They double charged the baggage fees: I prepaid in advance but upon checking in for the return flight the representative wasn't able to locate the appropriate information, although I had a printed copy of the confirmation email they sent. I had to pay for it again which is a lousy experience."
Contra: "Went First Class. What a joke! Coach seats & service. Only difference is they leave the middle seat empty. This appears to be the European standard (we flew on 3 different airlines) for 1st Class within Europe flights. Save your money, fly coach within Europe."
Pro: "Great Experience."
Contra: "Great Experience"
Contra: "terrible experience - hidden fees for 1st checked baggage travelocity messed up on their site when the ticket was purchased when in fact the person that travels needs to pay to check in the luggage"
Pro: "The food and attention of personal crew"
Contra: "Delays in the itineraries and the entertainment system did not work well"
Pro: "The people who work for Lufthansa are the nicest i’ve met, on par with Turkish airlines. The times for boarding and departure were respected, the flight was short but pleasant."
Contra: "The long lines. After check in and security, boarding could have involved less of a standing and waiting, with a bit of ahead communication that could be attained. For instance indicate the order of boarding, time until boarding, and place where the passengers from rows 50-70 should form ia line..."
Pro: "All good - Lufthansa even handled an unexpected air traffic delay well, meaning my connection still worked. Great price too - booked at short notice and Lufthansa business was half the price of BA. Far better device too."
Contra: "No negatives."
Pro: "Very comfortable, amazing crew and service. Entertainment was very good with lots of options."
Pro: "Flight on time, good service, helpful staff"
Pro: "Crew very nice and carefull"
Contra: "My luggage was destroied ;-("
Pro: "Staff was very polite, helpful, and attentive. Our flight left late due to a delay with the plane, and the flight attendants were very proactive about informing passengers about making connections and doing all they could to help."
Contra: "All good."
Pro: "We originally paid for seats a month before and were told to move seats because the plane was full. Plane was not full. Would like refund."
Contra: "Customer service"
Pro: "Lufthansa has it all together and knows how to fly. I recommend to everyone!"
Pro: "Comfortable seats with plenty of room. Enjoyable crew during the flight."
Contra: "I did not have any complaints about this specific flight."
Pro: "Very good service.."
Contra: "A flight attendant from Bucharest to Frankfurt kept bumping her behind in my shoulder. Before this she was not helpful when I asked her where to put my bag. She shoukd not work with people if she does not like them. Otherwise, everything was great: food, space, movies."
Pro: "I liked that I wasn't disappointed."
Contra: "Bathrooms could be cleaner. A good bathroom deodorant could also help"
Contra: "crew was not friendly"
Contra: "It wasn't Lufthansa"
Pro: "I was really upset because time for living 6 and we left 8:15 I had connection fly to Romanian I missed because of ...I stay in Germany for 5 hours.I ask Lufthansa too put me on Tarom fly they say is United fly...they really make me updated.I think the crew on United is not friendly.The food waste good in"
Contra: "I like the movie"
Pro: "I have been spoiled with the large planes, so the small ones to me are cramped, but thats with all carriers not just Lufthansa. I generally prefer to fly Lufthansa when heading to Europe."
Contra: "It took over an hour to drop off a bag prior to boarding. I had already checked in online. There were long lines in Bucharest and simply not enough staff working the Lufthansa desks."
Contra: "Although we had reserved (paid) seats as a family in an entire row, upon check in we were given different seats. We had to spend 20 minutes talking with different agents in order to get our original seats."
Pro: "Movie selection, wine and food"
Contra: "Crying babies - outside of the crew control"
Pro: "Efficient boarding. On time departure."
Pro: "Real food with real tableware even in the Econ section. Unbelievably courteous staff. Will make it impossible to fly Anyone else when going overseas"
Contra: "Nothing...I felt spoiled"
Contra: "The food could be better. The ravioli option very oily ."
Pro: "Was served food and drinks for a 2 hr flight between OTP and MUC. Who else does this? My mom was offered transportation assistance throughout the entire flight. Preboarding on every leg of the flight"
Pro: "Plane was clean and service was great."
Pro: "Nothing was extraordinary."
Contra: "Seat comfort. Entertainment. Toilets far from the premium zone. Meal choice. Wine choice, headset. All sub par compared to other airlines in the premium economy space. In particular, Qantas is much much closer to business class than to economy class in it's premium economy product. Lufthansa is just not delivering value to this segment."
Pro: "Attention to details, big clean bathrooms, service with a smile, friendly flight attendants, overall a great experience. I think American, United and Delta and other airlines could learn a lot from this Company."
Contra: "Not much, just the USB port on my chair was not working. No biggie. Reported it and should be fixed asap."
Pro: "Despite the wintry weather, a safe take off and a nice flight. A plus to Otopeni (Bucharest) airport administration - clean runaway, no snow no ice on it."
Contra: "Delay time should be posted accordingly at the gate."
Contra: "A strike caused us to have to shorten our vacation and we lost the money on all hotels and tours. The treatment by staff was unpleasant. I hope the other 350,000 affected people were treated with more courtesy."
Contra: "My flight was cancelled due to the pilots' strike. I only learned about this when I attempted online check in. Lufthansa never attempted to notify me. Then when I called in to the Romania Service Center to rebook, the phones went down in the middle of the call. That is understandable given the extreme volume of calls they were handling. What is unacceptable, is that they made no attempt to contact me once the phones were up. I ended up calling the U.S. service center at 1am local time to rebook...only 3 hours before I needed to leave for the airport. It took an hour - which I paid for at direct dial international rates - to find a flight. I'm very grateful for the U.S. service rep who was kind and helpful. She was the one bright spot in this poorly handled situation."
Pro: "Service was excellent"
Contra: "All would have been great, but the cross Atlantic had a locked seat assignment. I was assigned last row and middle seat, I could not change seat when there were other seats available at check-in. United would not let agents change either. Maybe kayak related? Expedia always allows seat changes"
Pro: "Seat backs are flatter, which for me (a shorter woman) is much more comfortable than the more contoured seats on other airlines."
Contra: "Very dry sandwiches."
Pro: "Crew was friendly and attentive, food was delicious and served on time"
Pro: "Flights were on time. Both Air Canada and Lufthansa Airlines Service, including sitting and boarding process were relatively smooth."
Contra: "12 hour long flight from Frankfurt to LA was exhausting."
Pro: "Organized boarding, service, left on time"
Contra: "No gluten-free food when they served the food. They said that they didn't serve gluten-free food on short flights, but this was two and a half hours. Also, I had asked for a gluten-free meal when I booked my flight. Not good in today's world, when quite a few people have to eat gluten-free. (I am a medical doctor.)"
The flight was fine. Legroom on this airline is not as good as others, but we were saved by the fact the flight was not full and two of us were able to stretch out over three seats. I found some interesting movies to watch. The TV show selection was rather lacking. Food was ok.
Pentru mine totul a funcționat bine… chiar foarte bine
Contra: "Mi s-au pierdut bagajele !"
Pro: "Just in time take of and landing, staff friendliness"
Pro: "One crew member in the OTP-VIE flight that was great in service ."
Contra: "The delaying of both flights . The crew service on the VIE-NICE flight was awful ."
Pro: "The flight attendants were quite personable and engaged."
Pro: "Entertainment players"
Contra: "Organization when boarding (a line vs. a mob of people from all different boarding groups) not organized at all. Ended up leaving about 45 minutes late."
Contra: "Flight was delayed more 1:15 and it is a 35 min flight. If this happens so late in the night is even worse."
Pro: "Perfect timing between flights."
Contra: "A small sandwich would have been nice:)"
Pro: "Crew was fantastic and with an exceptional service. Food was really good."
Contra: "Maybe the seats coudl be a little bit wider"
Pro: "thebflight wqs smooth and on time"
Contra: "snack they gave something sweet at 07:00 AM"
Pro: "Flight time was quite good"
Contra: "There was a 45 min departure delay and no announcements to us while waiting in the plane about it"
Pro: "It was better with the earache, plane felt cleaner, the crew was more friendly and attentive. Didn't feel as dark as the first flight."
Contra: "The Star Alliance flights aren't that cheap. Comparable price between Lufthansa, Swiss, SAS and Austrian. Lufthansa gives you food, and has friendly service. SAS gives you coffee and tea. On Austrian and Swiss I didn't get anything. For same price range and same alliance, that is a point I keep in mind. Now I mainly try to get onto Lufthansa flights (or Turkish Airlines which is my favorite). Even on Aegean, I got better food, and the magazine was better, plus there were some monitors to track the flight. Austrian feels cheaper than the others. That is the main point I didn't like."
Contra: "I missed my flight because of the delay in Zurich"
Contra: "Austrian Airlines cancelled my flight with no notice, technical difficulties. Woke up before 5 am and went to the airport to find out, then waited in line for two hours to get re-booked on a flight the next day. Really poorly done. No compensation. Would not recommend Austrian Airlines, ever. -Mark Cox"
Pro: "Special kosher meal was good!!!"
Contra: "Would like access to coffee more often. :) Internet/wireless did not work for entire flight. Aisles super small. Overall - great experience!"
Contra: "more than one hour delay, crew didn't arrange anything for passengers who had to catch a connecting flight in a short time. And according to other passengers, Austrian's flights are always late for at least 30-45 minutes since recent years."
Pro: "Friendly staff with great service"
Contra: "Lufthansa’s/Austrian Airlines’s idea of a ‘snack’ is a pathetic little bag of sugar and chemicals that no one should have to be offered, even if it comes for free. Hugely disappointed. Flight attendants not attentive enough, and it took forever for the flight attendant to come after I’ve pressed the call button. Overall impression: meh! First time flying Austrian, but next time I’ll probably book with their competitors if prices are similar."
Pro: "The stewardess is very polite and accommodating n"
Contra: "May bags didn't make the transfer and were sent on to me the following day."
Pro: "Was a fine solid flight by Austrian."
Contra: "I wanted to buy an checked-in luggage, but Austrian site did not worked properly, repeatedly gave an error message. I ended up buying it at the counter desk, in the airport, at a much higher price."
Pro: "Boarding on time and quick"
Contra: "Food and entertainment choices"
Contra: "Designs of Business Class seatings need some improvement. It seemed there was waste of useful space. Therefore, the area for Business Class seating was big but there were not enough space for everything."
Pro: "The pilots are very skilled and keeps you informed about every single “bump” during the flight. Flight attendents are very nice, pleasant, polite and helpful."
Pro: "The plane took off as scheduled and arrived promptly. Flight attendents are polite, pleasant and helpful."
Pro: "Comfort was good because I had a whole bench to myself!"
Pro: "Boarding was easy, on time"
Contra: "Crew's attitude for any request was snobby and harsh"
Contra: "We left from Vienna , two hours late. This kind of problem supposed to be fix it , before.i like to fly with Austrian Airlines, isn't the first time, but now for me , to so long was a big problem"
Contra: "Delayed flight after an already long flight from the states"
Pro: "the stewardess gave me coffee even if she already passed by me (because I was sleeping) I appreciated that :)"
Contra: "Please change food, enough of pasta every time."
Pro: "Great grew, great flight. Thank you!"
Pro: "The service and the overall flight quality, the pilot was very good!"
Pro: "Best take off, Best Fight, Perfect Landing...!!!"
Contra: "Diner was tasty...but, no breakfast... would have been great..!!!"
Pro: "Flight services were good. Staff friendly. food was good"
Contra: "Maybe I was upset due to the issues at the first leg so could not enjoy this one"
Pro: "Easy online check-in and boarding pass access also linked to wallet."
Contra: "I was not aware of additional luggage charges when I booked my ticket. It would be helpful to have a warning about that and the fact that if you do not prepay online you are charged double. I also was not aware of the type of a ticket I booked, e.g. Economy light and what it meant for luggage fees."
Pro: "Nice crew, lots of entertainment options (movies especially). Seats recline very far back, nice..."
Contra: "Ground crew was a big bottleneck and Austrian security did not help."
Contra: "I could not pay for check-in baggages when I bough 4 tickets for 4 passengers. So I called the airline customer service, and they told me that the first check-in baggage is free. However, when we boarded the airplane on 9/5/2016, we were charged 30 Euros for each bag, a total of 120 Euros for 4 checked in bags of 4 passengers. This is unfair, and I would like it to be corrected if possible. Thanks."
Pro: "Choice of movies Pillow plus blanket Snack-1/2 sandwich plus caramel mousse"
Contra: "I wasn't able to check in online therefor i got terrible seat. The guy next to me was very tall and big and he was stuck on me due to not enough space. I was extremly uncomfortable because he was rude when i asked him to let me out. I asked if i can change seats but the plane was full. I didn't get any sleep either. Extremly tiring and turbulent 10 hour flight."
Contra: "No soap in the toilets"
Pro: "Flight was cancelled. Had to wait in the airport with kids."
Pro: "We left late but efficiently."
Over 3 hours of delay without any assistance from klm
The flight from Rome to Ams was delayed. The flight from AMS to Moscow was missed. - We spent 2h in a linewaiting for the service desk to rebook the tickets - Then, we spend more than an hour to get the hotel - Then waiting for the shuttle another 30 minutes Unexpectedly poor and slow service. The next working day is ruined with the flight in the middle
They canceled our flights but the flight went on anyway.
Pro: "The plane condition."
Contra: "The flight attendants could have served some drinks in between the meals. They actually refused to serve something additionally when asked."
Contra: "Friendlier crews"
Pro: "Boarding was efficient and the crew were nice."
Contra: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."
Pro: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Pro: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Contra: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."
Pro: "Nice crew, good food."
Contra: "Both bathroom were not working in business class area."
Pro: "Confort and kindness"
Contra: "It was too cold"
Pro: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."
Pro: "The socks offered in business were comfortable and nice looking. The red wine was good."
Contra: "The food was just average and the seat not too comfortable"
Pro: "Loved the smooth ride."
Contra: "Bathroom was pretty nasty"
Pro: "Almost everything, especially the crew."
Contra: "Don’t feel like anything should be better to be honest"
Pro: "The staff was super nice, the services good. Clear lines about baggage allowance."
Contra: "The flight was delayed and due to this I missed my car connection. I had to prolong my trip by 4 hours, untill I found another connection. I know this was not a klm issue, but rather airport related, but the inconvenience was still. Thus, my lower satisfaction grade"

Pro: "Friendly crew, upgraded seat was worthwhile"
Contra: "More snacks in between meals,"
Contra: "Flight 2 hours delayed, started boarding but had to wait on line 10 more minutes on boarding ramp for plane door to be opened, upon landing in Dublin had to wait on tarmac for anther 15 minutes for stairs to arrive and be connected to airplane. Then had to wait another hour for checked luggage...."
Pro: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Contra: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"
Contra: "I called for a crew member 5 times and waited 25 minutes for anyone to help me with just some water. I had to get up and go to the very back of the plane to ask for some water. The plane was hot and no air to be found. This was all after we had to get back off the plane before takeoff. It was terrib"
Contra: "Inflight was better than I expected. But needs upgrading air crafts."
Pro: "Friendly and efficient crew. Flights were on time if not even early."
Pro: "Everything is alright"
Pro: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Contra: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."
Pro: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Pro: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."
Pro: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."

Pro: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."
Contra: "The streaming service didn’t work"
Pro: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Contra: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."
Pro: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival."
Pro: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Contra: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."
Contra: "Crowded seating, wake-up for breakfast service two hours before arrival"
Pro: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"
Pro: "Crew good flight was fine apart from delay due to fog in Amsterdam but kept informed"

Pro: "Easy boarding, plenty of room"
Contra: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"
Contra: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."

Contra: "No power to charge phones, laptops, etc and no WiFi available. For such a long trip (10 hours) below industry standard."
Pro: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Contra: "Quite bummed that the flight didn't have wifi / USB):"
Pro: "leg room economy compared to KLM"
Contra: "full flight, no upgrade possible"
Pro: "La ponctualité."
Contra: "Variété des boissons proposées."
Pro: "The crew was perfect"
Contra: "No wi fi on the plane."
Contra: "I may be wrong but these days, the staff curtsy and overall well coming approach is lacking! Just a smile and a few cheerful words can transform passengers’ mood greatly!! This becomes particularly important when one is traveling for > 9 hours back to back flights!! One can extra charge for it!!"
Pro: "The crew was OK, but nothing special."
Contra: "Air France should not sell tickets for which the connection flights are almost impossible to catch. My luggage was not transferred to my connecting flight. I had to run to catch the flight to Bucharest. At CDC there were only two custom officers for checking passport of EU citizens, on a Saturday morning with hundreds and hundreds incoming travelers. On top of it, one female officer was rude. Typical french :("
Contra: "Delay in take off 45 min!!!!"
Contra: "I was catching a flight in Paris to Aberdeen after arriving from Malaga. The time between flights was not enough 55 mins as the gate closed 20 mins before departure and it takes at least 15 minutes from arrival to taxi to the terminal and then get off the plane. I had to change from terminal F to E which was well sign posted but I only made it with 4 minutes to spare"
Contra: "Only a steward that did not help us with luggage when neede..."
Contra: "tout est à revoir !"
Contra: "Comfort plus seats need some work. Very thin padding on a hard seat. The leg rest needs to come up higher so you don’t slide down while semi reclined. Nice compromise between business and coach though."
Contra: "Seats are not comfortable for long haul. Airbus 380 premier economy. Not enough reclining and leg support."
Pro: "Spacious business class seats, excellent meals"
Contra: "Lack of ventilation in cabin, and staff refusal to turn heaters down (in September), very limited entertainment options."
Pro: "The bread was fresh and food better than other times"
Contra: "Crew is always aggressive and unfriendly"
Pro: "Everything! The service was exceptional!"
Contra: "Boarding clusterf..."
Contra: "Seat was super uncomfortable. Could not fit in my legs at all, could not recline it enough. Maybe sufficient for a one hour flight, definitely not on an intercontinental flight."
Contra: "Everything very good"
Pro: "Everything was great"
Pro: "Friendly attendants, entertainment variety"
Contra: "Comfort, food could have been better."
Pro: "The crew"
Contra: "Seats! They were too small!"

Contra: "Booked with my partner. Ended up sitting apart. Not good"
Pro: "Didn’t like the sandwich offered"
Pro: "Flight attendant Ms. Sophie Picard made every extra effort to try to find a meal when they had run out of Business Class meals. She made up for the uncomfortable seating in Business Class."

Pro: "It was on time"
Contra: "Hard seats Boarding was 35 min delayed"
Pro: "Crew and boarding were very good. Very helpful to foreigners. Thank you Coffe was really good didn’t eat food. Sleeping."
Contra: "Business class seats weren’t comfortable and too narrow no entertainment."
Pro: "Boarding this large plane went relatively quickly and orderly."
Contra: "Seats were tight and got a bit uncomfortable. This was a long flight. Could use a much better cushion."
Contra: "We were 2h late"
Pro: "Food has improved a lot on business class. Meals are more creative."
Contra: "Water bottles not given out unless ou ask for it. Crew needs to better trained with how to handle business class..."
Pro: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The food very good"
Contra: "First the plane was delayed because of a technical issue that I think they should check before The plane was crowded and old."
Pro: "The airplane was modern, and the crew very good. Nice, service oriented and in general trying to make the flight experience as good as possible."
Contra: "The flight was very late. I lost my connection. My bag was lost and unable to recover it so far (after more than 24 hours). About to initiate the next leg of the trip with no clothes or any idea if my luggage will be recovered."
Contra: "Crew not only lacked sensibility to understand the purpose of an emotional support dog but kept harassing me about the dog being tied to my seat. At some point a flight attendant even tried to touch my dog, invading my personal space. When the dog rightfully acted defensive trying to protect me, the crew member started threatening me that he would have the dog sent to cargo, the last thing a person with an emotional support pet wants to hear. Extreme lack of professionalism."
Contra: "People may think,that the delay of the flight has set my mood for this review but I can ensure it has most definitely not. With all the bad weather, I was already very happy to connect right on time in Paris. However, a long haul A380 flight with such a tight seat configurstion is almost embarrassing for an airline. The in flight entertainment is at a very poor level, not only with the screen being very small and outdated, many of the movies are only available in French and the international selection very limited. The food was not much of a delight, whereas the presentation was nice. However, in all the 7 h between the services, nobody came around with refreshments in a completely booked flight, neither was announced that a trolly would be set for self service in the galley. Lucky the ones who got up and found out about. In terms of amenities, again, the airline is lacking of originality and saves cost. Bottom line: you get from A to B, but there are so many better competitors in the market, which I shall definitely consider on my next travel."
Pro: "Staff was nice"
Contra: "Very cramped. Poor leg room also with.metal bars under seats that further. Limited foot room. Terrible options in movies. The seats in front of us reclined so far that I couldn’t do anything but stare at the back of the seat anyway."
Pro: "Although we departed late from Paris, it arrived on time to Mexico City. Most of the stewardess very professional and kind."
Contra: "Although we traveled in Business, all business cabins were full of children, tired crying, walking around. My suggestion to AIR France would be that the small cabin of business were assigned to adults only. Regarding food, some options were not available when our turn came."
Pro: "It es a good flight back"
Contra: "Items missing on duty free purchases"
Pro: "It was on time and the crew was good"
Contra: "The food wasnt upto the mark"
Pro: "Flight was only 50% full. Room to spread out."
Contra: "Leg room cramp. Flight arrived late as a result missed connection home."
Contra: "Air France lost my luggage and they can't find it in the computer system."
Pro: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Contra: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good. I did not find the seats comfortable."
Contra: "Wheel chairs for my ill and aged parents was not provided"
Pro: "Wheel chair service at LAX is run by the airport. Their priority is to get you to your flight, not to a VIP room regardless of how early you check in."
Pro: "I didn't feel cramped in a Window Seat. Two meals were served during the flight. It was nice to get back to being fed something other than skippy snacks on an airline flight."
Contra: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."
Pro: "Croissants instead of pretzels was a nice change of snack"
Contra: "Computer failure rendered the check in process a total mess. Staff seemed utterly at a loss and also totally unprepared for this very early and very full flight. Most passengers seemed to have multiple bags to check. Since this is a regular flight it was hard to understand why check in staff wandered in late when time was already tight - let alone having a system failure as well to deal with. We were 50 minutes late leaving. This resulted in many of us either missing or having extremely tight (stressful) connections at CDG Paris."
Pro: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Flight attendant staff were friendly and very courteous."
Contra: "Vegetarian food choices are too limited. Snack and beverage availability on long flights like this are too few and far between."
Pro: "Bar/Coctail service on AF was excellent."
Contra: "Boarding area at CDG had almost nothing in the way of food and drink. Only one small Illy. Unbelievable in a major international airport."
Pro: "The food was one of the plane food I've had in a long time although the jamaican veggies weren't great .. The movies and choice of entertainment was amazing"
Pro: "I normally like to take an Air France flight. I love the food and the crew treatment. I like this French know how."
Contra: "I really don't like this new scedule at 11.00 My flight from Nantes needs to take off at 6.10 I need to leave home at 3.00 I imagine that I am not the only one with this kind of problems. Please, try to help"
