Delayed 3 times and keeping saying people to sit down. No clear lines or clear instructions when checkin or boarding. Rude staff. Great pilots though. Experience some lost and found situation at IST. The worse nightmare ever. Staff keep sending me to different people: information desk to lost and found inside gate then to inside TK desk then TK send to outside gate lost and found saying go through customs. Customs say no goes there etc… after 1.5 hrs finally able to find the right lost and found. What make things worse is noone offers to take the luggage. We found someone stuff with passport and we just trying to give it back… why made things so hard on us
This is another disease as if you have the Internet, you are ordinary deceivers!
The service leaves much to be desired.
Utter chaos boarding in Athens.
Pro: "it good but the food should be better"
Contra: "don’t know"
Pro: "Crew was not very frindly and the Turkish airlines staff at Istanbul are not at all friendly and so rude. I will never recommend Turkish airlines to anyone."
Contra: "No one came with drink carts until halfway through the flight. I was very hungry, never offered food. Boarding was late but no communication from staff."
Pro: "service on the flight was very good"
Contra: "the airport was very large - had attempted to get help with a phone call before flight and service was very poor.... website was a mess to work with"
Pro: "The crew was attentive and friendly!"
Pro: "So far nothing. Plane from Ukraine was delayed by 2 hours and we missed our connecting flight to Washington DC. Now we have to spend a night in Istanbul and missing the event that we had to attend on Feb 26!"
Contra: "Would be better if flight waited just 15 min to let passengers from delayed flight to get on board"
Contra: "I will never forget Turkish airlines again. They stole our money. We were at our flight on time but they wouldn't let us board. They then said we were no shows and cancelled all our remaining flights with no refund. This ended up costing us around $3000. We don't have this kind of money and I don't know how we will pay rent next month."
Pro: "Nice service & people"
Pro: "Food, service"
Contra: "Boarding delay"
Contra: "Seats allocation was uncertain until we checked in"
Pro: "Movie selection is great."
Contra: "Flight attendants seem undetertrained."
Contra: "At boarding they went in two stages. First stage they called people to board by category first people that needed more time then families with small children etc. HOWEVER, the put all of us in an intermediate room and the door to the gate was closed. They passed everyone so when the gate door opened everyone were trying to get to the gate and there was no order. That was stupid to say the least. Turkish could have waited the couple of minutes needed to get the gate open!!! and save the hassle!"
Contra: "My ticket was messed up completely (GYD-IST-VAR-IST). First leg did not book (close) it properly, I have lost 1 hour at trasfer desk in IST (they were solving my ticket issue for that long) and another hour in VAR on the way back (because the TK staff did not solve it right the first time). Lousy work of service desk! I was lucky to keep boarding passes as the proof, because nobody believed, that I duly arrived from Baku."
Pro: "Better of most European airlines.. nice enough lounge and inflight service pretty good with room to improve for sure."
Contra: "Boarding was simply chaotic where staff isn’t managing the queue well separating business and economy. At arrival baggage priority meant nothing. Half the non priority bags arrived way before a massive batch of priority bags arrived. Defeats the purpose of giving your guest fast track immigration !"
Contra: "They lost my check in bag and are offering no compensation whatsoever. I have to buy malaria medication and clothes"
Pro: "One of my fave airlines now Great seats, services, staff Turkish coffee in the air!"
Contra: "they keep the cabin a bit too hot, need to ask them all the time to make it colder"
Pro: "As always Turkish Airlines has exceptional service"
Contra: "They stole Items from my bag"
Pro: "Food was better than other airline."
Pro: "The food is great and so is the entertainment system."
Contra: "Unfortunately the aircon didn't work properly before takeoff in Singapore. The plane only cooled down when it was in the air."
Pro: "Best flight I had ever seen on the earth"
Pro: "friendly service, excellent crew, comfortable seats Actually it was my daughter recommendation to fly Turkish Airlines as she flies it almost exclusively We love Turkish Airlines As for Istanbul airport, I had an excellent experience while transiting. Well equipped, clean, nice restaurants and food Good experience overall I loved my flight"
Contra: "turbulence throughout but this is beyond your control I know, we just had nasty weather not on our way from Los Angeles to Istanbul though"
Pro: "Excellent Service & On time Schedule"
Contra: "Istanbul Airport Rest Rooms were not clean"
Contra: "The flight was delayed for 47 minutes and the boarding was a mess because they changed the plane at the last minute and everybody's seats were mixed. Then it was understood that there's over booking on the flight then they again lost time for searching for volunteers to drop their flight and take a further flight."
Pro: "The service is excellent and they do everything in their control to make a long flight comfortable."
Contra: "It's a long flight - nothing you do about that."
Pro: "Gold thing is that the flights are always on time."
Contra: "My charger got confiscated in Istanbul, too bad. I should have been told about this."
Pro: "Flight attendants greeted on arrival. Prompt with service. Good attitudes."
Contra: "Seats not to comfortable but can't really change that without upgrade."
Contra: "The international transfer line in Istanbul was an absolute nightmare. I had to jump to the front of the line or I would have missed my connection despite having a 90 minute window of time to make it through. It seems this airport lacks the capacity needed to get people through efficiently based on the numbers of travelers using it."
Contra: "Yes, everything was really good"
Pro: "Comfortable seats, roomy, good customer services on the plane"
Contra: "One concern - as we were landing and then taxiing, people were standing up and getting baggage out of the overhead compartments before the plane had stopped moving. It felt dangerous. I would suggest having the flight crew make an announcement so people could be safe and remain seated until the airplane comes to a final stop/no longer moving."
Pro: "Short but comfortable and pleasant flight."
Pro: "One stewardess was very helpful, even though she could not speak English."
Contra: "13 1/2 hour flight three rows from the rear of the plane. I feel and smell like a sardine. The food was horrid. I tasted it, but thought best of eating it for fear of food poisoning. It also looked disgusting. Couldn't understand any of the announcements."
Pro: "food was good, good entertainment, comfortable seating"
Contra: "service was slow and inefficient"
Pro: "To small area for passengers after security before boarding"
Pro: "The food.."
Contra: "That the anytime snacks that was offered was not available for passengers"
Pro: "I liked the movie choices"
Contra: "The second pasta dish with red sauce gave me food poisoning. I threw up on the plane, at the airport, 9' the way home, and when I was at home. I had to miss work the next day due to your food. Also, there was not enough trash collection service"
Pro: "Most of the staff were friendly and helpful, and the quality of the food was rather impressive for a plane flight. I liked the number of selections that were available per the movies and media based entertainment on the flights."
Contra: "A few of the stewards and stewardesses had a bad attitude; as if they had brought on board some format of negativity. I understand the flights can be long, but there's no need for bad behavior towards customers."
Pro: "- the food was great! not the usual bad airplane quality, we felt we're eating at a restaurant"
Contra: "- Screen from Madrid to Istanbul wasn't working even though crew members restarted it several times"
Pro: "The service, food, efficiency"
Contra: "It seemed that the handling and leaving the plane took very long, probably due to airport services"
Contra: "Seat was broken. Did not recline. Boarding was a Zoo"
Pro: "The flight was spacious, and the flight smooth."
Pro: "Everithing was exelent, the best food, movies and nice crew"
Contra: "Our plane was not attached to the terminal and we have to go on the bus, we was with little kid amd 2 hand bags - wasn't pleasent"
Pro: "I love the comfort and hospitality offered by the Turkish"
Contra: "There is no free Wi Fi on Ataturk airport. They claim 2 hours, but it doesn't support Croatian 385 country access nr."
Pro: "very good food!! and excellent choice of movies"
Pro: "Accommodating a lot more than American Airlines."
Contra: "13 hour delay"
Contra: "The Entertainment display didn't work."
Pro: "Very nice crew, precisely respects the flight schedule"
Pro: "Overall the flight was very comfortable."
Contra: "Filthy plane, and delayed too long"
Pro: "Crew was very friendly and efficient. Flight was pretty smooth."
Contra: "On time departure would have been nice. 2.5 hours late."
Contra: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."
Contra: "It was canceled"
Pro: "The crew really kept us updated on the many delays."
Contra: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."
Pro: "The crew was amazing."
Contra: "We experienced a one hour ground delay at Sea-Tac which was unrelated to our airline. The pilot kept the passengers informed with timely updates, and we finally departed about when the pilot predicted we'd get away."
Pro: "I was upgraded to Comfort+ and the seat next to me was left vacant. That was a great flight!"
Pro: "Seat was decent and only a $10 upgrade. Worth it!"
Contra: "Wasn’t clear what boarding group was up. I don’t usually fly delta so maybe I’m just not used to the system but something on the video screen at the gate saying where they were in boarding would have helped. I wasn’t the only one that seemed lost."
Pro: "The food was improved and the seat was comfortable."
Pro: "Early departure"
Contra: "Absolutely nothing"
Pro: "Boarding was quick"
Contra: "No entertainment, plane was small"
Contra: "First delay notification: 1 hour 20 minutes 1 hour later, Second delay notification: 3 hours 15 minutes 2 hours later: Third delay notification: 3 hour 50 minutes Fourth delay notification: 4 hours 25 minutes Fifth delay notification: 4 hour 32 minutes No explanation for reason. Last time flying Delta."
Pro: "Excellent service in most every respect! Boarding was easy, accommodations were quite ample, food was great, and the entertainment was plentiful."
Contra: "Slight problem with making my seat into a bed, which wasn't fixable. Movies were good, except for the trailers before and after each, which seemed to take forever! Didn't get the seats my wife and originally booked with China Southern/Delta, but the substitution was quite adequate! Problems with checking in on flights, as neither airline seemed to be able to deal with this split ticket! But they tried very hard to make thing up to us, which goes a long way to making us feel like we are valued customers!"
Pro: "The service and the crew were extremely courteous polite and professional ."
Contra: "As it is an all flights just not enough leg room and a very tight chair."
Contra: "Missed connecting flight because the first flight was delayed by 2.5 hours. I didn’t get the comfort seat I paid for because of this and was not given a refund for it."
Contra: "Kayak a howed my gate as something that didn’t exist at the terminal. I went to a kayak help desk to have a ticket printed that showed my TSA precheck because it wasn’t showing on my mobile ticket, and no one was there to help. I waisted for 10 mins. It then took me nearly 2 hours to get through security. I asked if I could get through quicker and was told I could not, despite it being passed my boarding time. I then ran to my gate where I waited for another 10 mins (no one was there, again) and then an employee came out and said they couldn’t let anyone board once the door was shut. He then directed me to the delta help desk (there was at least 20 people behind me who missed their flight). I then had to pay an additional $75 to get a later flight. The whole experience was awful and I’m disappointed with Kayak and the gate confusion, but mostly Delta and the lack of customer service."
Pro: "I think they flew so fast. We could land almost on time even though we departed a hour late. Airplane was new and clean."
Contra: "Boarding was chaos. They overbooked 25? 45? Anyway, they are in panic. They tried to request ppl to take next day flight by giving away 300 gift card etc. the ppl who were told there are no seats upset and arguing at the gate. Flight was delayed for one hour. Once we are on airplane, they are still shuffling seats around, so ppl cannot move forward. Just standing there for 10mins waiting for things to settle. Flight attendants did not give us a headphone. (I have a headphone for iPhone X so I could not connect it to their entertaiment system.)"
Pro: "This was our first time flying Delta and it was a very pleasurable experience. Boarding was very straight forward and the seats allocated comfortable. A surprise for us was being asked if we would like to move seats from the back of the aircraft to Comfort Economy (we think it was to do with weight balance! but appreciated very much none the less). The flight attendants were very professional and helpful, as you would hope all attendants on all airlines would be. We'd gladly fly Delta again anytime."
Pro: "Aside from the issue where we had to deplane and wait for another plane, the flight and crew were great."
Contra: "The delay from the plane problem."
Pro: "Amenities, service, and punctuation of flight"
Pro: "I dont like that you change my flight and I have to wait 8 hours at the airport to flight to Mexico City"
Pro: "Nothing really"
Contra: "Flight delay further to the 30 minutes additional 20 min due to crew being not there"
Pro: "Entertainment was good."
Contra: "The crew was very rude."
Pro: "No vegetarian options in first class.. and go go wouldn5 hook up. Flight was an hour late...but that was ok."
Contra: "The pilot did a nice job of flying in and banking so we could see the view.."
Contra: "Seat, did not get upgraded"
Pro: "Friendly staff staff, smooth boarding experience, DC+ positive experience"
Contra: "757-200 outdated for having spent 10 hours on that same plane (stop but no plane change) having flown shorter haul flights on many updated 757 was disappointing."
Pro: "The food was fine and it was on time"
Contra: "The airplane back by the bathrooms were littered all over the floor. Needed to be cleaned. Their were no seat covers in toilette and it was only 2 hrs into the flight."
Contra: "No drink or snack service. No trash pick up. No option to purchase or rent headphones"
Pro: "The crew was friendly and attentive, and the flights were punctual. I was assigned a good seat, and I appreciated the meal, as i was going to arrive in Mexico very late. I also enjoyed the entertainment options."
Contra: "I really have no negative comments."
Pro: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."
Contra: "Well, even United brings a tray of waters on the short flight from Portland to Redmond. Hard to believe it was impossible to serve some drinks on this 1 hour fairly empty flight from Seattle. Also, when taking off the plane surged and slowed several times. I had to wonder if the pilot was in training?"
Pro: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Contra: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Pro: "The flight was fine, attendants we're good, entertainment options are great."
Contra: "Boarding. It was probably the worst I've seen. A shared intercom system between two gates (b7 and b7a), boarding flights around the same time and our flight beginning portions of pre boarding with no announcements caused mass confusion. Passengers lining up to go before they should, bumping into each other, no info or corrections over the intercom. The gate agent yelling at people to move aside. Overall terrible gate agents and terrible set up. Flight crew was great though."
Pro: "everything was very nice"
Contra: "The fact they wasted two days of my trip with my son travelling from the U.S. to China because they didn't know about transit visa regulations. And so far they offered a 75 dollar voucher for participating merchants. Unacceptable"
Contra: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"
Contra: "Late and missed my international connection"
Pro: "Free entertainment and free food was unexpected and very welcomed, especially given the trend of charging for more and more features."
Contra: "*Again, my first choice of main off the menu, in Delta One, had run out. *Not a fan of the Delta One seats."
Contra: "The air conditioning was broken so it was sweltering the whole time. Staff didn't even mention it or apologize. No leg room. Bags took longer than 20 minutes to arrive but we didn't make a fuss since we were just glad to be finished with Delta. I'll never fly Delta again even if it costs me more."
Pro: "We had a whole row of 3 to our family, so we could put the armrests up & the kids just laid down in our row (on me, & each other) and slept most of the flight. The flight crew was very understanding and helpful with my kids who were just with me on an intl flight "daddy duty.""
Contra: "Since it was a flight from Seoul, Korea to Seattle; it would've been nicer if all the movies had Korean subtitles-- my 4-yo boy who only speaks Korean, couldn't make it through more than 15 mins of a movie because he couldn't understand (of course, some of that is due to age & short attention-span). But he kept saying, "I hate English" in Korean while trying to pick a movie. Also, I'm 6'2"; so while it was nice having the whole row for my kids to lay down in-- I was cramped and uncomfortable the whole flight, even moreso with Delta's seats being closer together than on other international carriers I've flown."
Pro: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled so we didn't have to run to catch our connecting flight."
Contra: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Pro: "Salmon dinner was the best dish Lufthansa ever served"
Contra: "Flight attendants disappeared after serving dinner. They didn't come around once between dinner and breakfast. This was the worst LH crew ever."
Pro: "Excellent service, friendly crew, economy seat was ok even if I’m 6’ 1”"
Contra: "Food was not very good, inflight headset available but very, very low quality for such a noisy environment and their own headset plug would not match the plug type of the entertainment center!"
Pro: "The crew was friendly"
Contra: "Maybe not have my luggage lost and get rebooked to a later flight for no reason"
Pro: "Crew were great. Very friendly & helpful"
Contra: "Lufthansa really need to serve something better than high school cafeteria grade food"
Pro: "Crew were friendly, boarded promptly"
Contra: "Food could have been better."
Contra: "Flight was delayed"
Contra: "Food could be better"
Pro: "The flight attendants were friendly. The seats were new. The movie selection was good."
Contra: "The scrambled eggs for breakfast appeared to be powered eggs, or overcooked eggs. The storage bins for the luggage were very small for the middle seats (aircraft was an Airbus A330-200). After several hours of flying, there was trash in the aisles and on the toilet floor. The toilets were dirty and not cleaned. Finally, the toilets ran out of paper towels and tissues with 3 hours to go in the flight, and they were never refilled. The flight attendants put a roll of toilet paper next the sink to use for your hands."
Contra: "I din't like the fact that Lufhtansa company uses double standards for the countries where they have their flights. From USA, San Jose, Ca, to Frankfurt, Germany everything was good (flight on 08/31/2018 - 09/01/2018). They have been very profesional, beganing wih the boarding time untill the arrival in Frankfurt. The flight to Romania was a different story. They haven't been very professional at all. The flight had a delay and nobody said a word. It was just a clerck there who didn't tell to the Lufthansa passengers for a while anything about our delay. So, finally, he said after 15-20 minutes that our fligt will be later, 20 minutes, than the scheduled time on our tickets. They seemed do not care too much about the Romanian passengers."
Pro: "Food was good but it would be great if we can select more options online before boarding the flight. Beverages were served without ice and you have to ask for ice cubes every time"
Contra: "AC in flight from Seattle to Delhi was at high temperature so we didn’t use any blankets or were not comfortable enough to sleep"
Pro: "Movie choices were great! The crew was very nice and accommodating."
Contra: "Uncomfortable seats, but that's a problem with every airline."
Pro: "We purchased seats with extra legroom. They were well worth the extra cost as we were very comfortable."
Pro: "Cabin was clean"
Contra: "Boarding and airpot staff were horrible: rude, chaotic experience especially in Munich and Frankfurt. Main issue was rude staff... No concept of customer service ."
Pro: "Good plane and service"
Pro: "Food was ok. Beer offered at no charge. Lots of entertainment options"
Contra: "Plane was HOT no air and economy was unbelievably cramped and uncomfortable. 9 1/2 hr flight was torture"
Pro: "Excellent service during the two hour trip. No complaints whatsoever!"
Contra: "No headrest screens for entertainment but I had my phone and downloaded movies and shoes prior to leaving the US."
Pro: "The selection of in-flight movies is excellent. That has been my only positive experience"
Contra: "Lufthansa is always late, every single flight I have caught with them has been at least 45 minutes late. Additionally they are very inflexible if you want to make a change to your tickets after purchasing. Boarding the plane is handled very inefficiently and takes much longer than most other airlines. The food is mediocre and the drink cart only comes by every 2 hours or so which is far too infrequent"
Pro: "It was an overall good experience. Very well organized. Since both legs of the flight we're half-empty, it was easier on the crew too. They were nice and helpful. Everything very clean. Entertainment choices were good. Had an excellent entertainment system."
Contra: "Food was kind of bland."
Pro: "Everything is good"
Contra: "Food use to be better"
Pro: "That was the most comfortable flight I have ever had. Famous German standards of excellence. Everything was just as it's supposed to be. Punctuality, politeness, order - just perfection. Thank you for such a great treatment!"
Pro: "Such great personnel in the air - can't say enough how much I appreciated them."
Contra: "The airline as a whole, however, encourages you to book with them under the reasonable assumption that connecting flights with Lufthansa will be achievable. Now that I've seen Frankfurt, There was no way they could actually expect any of us to make our connecting flights. And they offer no compensation. When I did get another flight, it was terribly delayed. Talking in line with regular European travelers, they said they expect it. Also met several fliers at the service desk attempting to connect via entirely different routes, all having the same experience."
Pro: "The crew was extremely responsive, inviting, and constantly walking about the cabin to see if passengers needed juice or water. The boarding, for such a large flight, was pretty smooth."
Contra: "The small screens for entertainment need to be updated. It took mine a few minutes into the flight before I could access all of the entertainment options. Additionally, the touchscreen was very difficult to navigate, as it jumped between non-responsive and too sensitive throughout the flight. Furthermore, the headphone jack should be updated, so that passengers can use their own headphones without an adapter. The headphone audio setup at my seat did not work very well."
Pro: "W we’re a few minutes late and they waited for us. We truly appreciate their cooperation. 5 strat services."
Contra: "Most of it"
Contra: "Leg room was less"
Pro: "Services, Food, Crew"
Contra: "IFE doesn't had much options."
Pro: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew."
Pro: "Boarding was done very quickly. Unlike the norm nowadays, people weren't cramming every single inch of space in the overhead. In addition, the flight wasn't full so my travel companion got to enjoy a full row to himself while I enjoyed an empty seat next to me to stretch out. The food was very good. The staff came by quite a few times to offer orange juice or water. The entertainment syren was excellent. I watched four full movies on the trip and have in mind at least a couple more for the return leg."
Contra: "Not a thing."
Pro: "Lots of room on a 747 - Lufthansa will probably retire them all soon. They handled my special meal request online and loaded the meals on the plane."
Contra: "The crew didn’t bother to confirm who had requested the special meals, and they perhaps were confused by the size of the wide body rows, so they served my dinner to the passenger in the window seat (seat K) instead of me (seat H) By the time I realized what had happened, my row mate had eaten half the meal. The crew also rammed my knee with a beverage cart while I was dozing. Not the best showing ever..."
Contra: "It seemed llike the boarding was rushed and a bit hectic."
Contra: "Didn't happen yet."
Pro: "Our dinner meal was quite good for airline food. After they reset my TV three times, it worked good."
Contra: "The breakfast left a lot to be desired. Leg room was very limited, especially after the person in front of me reclined their seat."
Pro: "Flight attendant was very helpful. She went out of her way to bring me a special tea. Large selection of entertainment."
Contra: "Food could've had more healthier choices. Also, kid-friendly food would've been a plus. Not enough leg room. Headphones were only working for one ear which is really bad for the ears. Air conditioning was really turned on really high and gave me a headache and the sniffles. I started throwing up during landing time. Horrible."
Pro: "Food was pretty good except for breakfast. Hospitality is great. Wish there was more access to water."
Contra: "Big passengers sitting near smaller passengers is annoying as they encroach on the limited space that exist and armrests suck as per usual."
Pro: "I fleweconomy. Flight on time. Boarding was quick. Food is so so bordering to poor. On the plus side the portion was small and is good when want to go on diet."
Pro: "flight was on time and the crew was wonderful"
Contra: "Plane was"
Contra: "Seats recline too much. When the person in front of you reclines his/her seat, you feel like you're in a tunnel with the seat back just inches from your face. However, the flight attendant was very kind and asked passengers to lift seats for the main meal, which was very nice."
Pro: "The crew was friendlier. the plane was way cleaner than the previous one. The food was more decent."
Contra: "The crew wasn't too willing to help with the carry-on baggage, for example - I kept looking for a while for an available spot to deposit mine."
Pro: "Overall the flight was ok"
Contra: "I was not a fan of the food but more important, the headset lack was broken. I had to pull the cable constantly to be able to hear something"
Contra: "A kid next to me keep shifting and kick me and nudge me all the time. His dad was trying to stop him from moving too much but couldn't control entirely. I kept waking up"
Contra: "I was denied boarding. No one told me that my passport had to be 6 mo. to expiration. Why the hell do you even put an expiration date if you're going to deny all travels prior to 6 months?"
Contra: "Everything. No compensation given either"
Pro: "Lufhansa did a great job. During flights, everything was good."
Contra: "Security check in Frankfurt was terrible, violating all human rights in every possible way! Please don't tell me that it is for passengers safety; such a humiliation cannot be justified by any reason! Since Lufthansa uses this airport for the most of their flights, I would not fly with this company anymore"
Contra: "We were told by the Delta baggage handler that they strike one day each quarter. This would have been helpful information before we booked our flight from Kayak. We had to delay our honeymoon by 12 hours and fly into a different airport. Delta was great though and the Luthanza agent who rescheduled us was also great."
Pro: "Check in smooth and professional. Please change places with Asia air so you are in front of rather than behind the hoard of people."
Contra: "On my flight from Seattle to Frankfurt I had one stewardess repeatedly skip me. She was a bit older. I thought after the first overlook she would take extra care but did not. This resulted in me having to ask the crew to repeat their previous steps just for me. "Hi, I know you are serving coffee but I wanted red wine". She was a bit clipped about having to repeat steps but what was I to do? She never looked up enough to see my hand and clearly didn't look at my face. She also didn't pick up my hand towel. I essentially had to rely on the rest of the crew but the care from this lady started to feel purposefully negligent of me. The rest of the staff was friendly and efficient. I also thought we were supposed to get an appertiff...one was never offered. Couldn't check in online. Was fine once I got to the countr but could you trade space with Asia air? It makes sense to have them at the end as they have a huge hoard of people it would be nice not to have to go through and several spots to check in. Check in at the desk otherwise was smooth and professional."
Pro: "The flight attendants were amazing. I bought the extra legroom seats and they were so worth it! I couldn't even tough the seat in front of me. Free wine. And the movies on your personal screen were all really good. Probably the best flight I have ever been on."
Pro: "The crew was especially great!"
Thumbs up for KLM crew, planes and Schiphol Airport, though short on staff and a little late everything went smooth, including the flight.
Wrote in the previous message. Poor. Delayed flight and lost working day. 4.5h together to rebook the flight, get the hotel voucher, get to the hotel and check in. Insanely slow.
Pro: "This Transavia Airlines is not good at all."
Contra: "Many things cheaper does mean better."
Pro: "Everything perfect and arrive to destination on perfect time."
Contra: "All positive."
Pro: "Decent price for economy comfort seat, 4A."
Contra: "The flight was delayed about 80 minutes and they did not informed until when I got to the Airport. I could have stayed more at home instead of the terminal. They have also changed the boarding gate.."
Pro: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Contra: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Contra: "When its rain we shouldn’t walk to the air plain"
Contra: "Half the screens were not working - crew were made aware but nothing was done. Vegetarian choices were poor to non-existent ; I witnessed crew insist to a passenger that there were no vegetarian options! They finally cobbled something together for him but not a pleasant experience"
Pro: "the crew was wonderful, we got a nice Wrap and water, wine or coffee for free, not all airlines serve it anymore, we were on time and I got whatsapp message with updates of the flight"

Contra: "the connecting times for klm seem to be very close - if your running late to start - you may not make your next one -"
Contra: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Contra: "Too much light in the cabin because of too many screens on. Should have a separate part of the cabin with screens off allowing one to sleep more easily."
Pro: "The crew was really friendly."
Contra: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."

Pro: "Comfortable and well laid out seat area"
Contra: "Food was a little substandard for business class"
Pro: "Comfort was better than on the previous Dash-8. Food was OK."
Contra: "Despised the cold temperature and cold draft in world business even with all vents shut off...gave me a head cold. Boarding was disorganized. There was no sense of direction; ergo, everyone was jumping in."
Pro: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Pro: "Food was excellent, service from staff was friendly, and entertainment options were great."
Contra: "Not a lot of shoulder room being in the middle seat. But it had adjustments options for a lot of other things which were good."
Pro: "The leg room, was surprisingly roomy"
Contra: "The food and that there was no entertainment."
Pro: "Decent meal (warm Pasta all'arrabbiata), nice little muffin for dessert and standard drinks (coffee & tea were a bonus, as they didn't serve any on a similar flight, from Barcelona to Amsterdam), friendly cabin crew."
Contra: "Poor timing - no reason for a 40 minute delay at take off (plane was fully boarded in time) Old aircraft, shabby, dirty and cramped seats. Coming from my connecting flight from Barcelona, I could clearly tell the different in the quality (and cleanliness) of the aircrafts."

Contra: "I did not get my luggage in Nairobi. The delayed flight that was the most likely reason it did not get to the connecting flight to Nairobi."
Pro: "Service impeccable!"
Contra: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."
Contra: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."
Contra: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pro: "Entertainment was good, and crew was very nice and accommodating. Flight was very comfortable and smooth."
Contra: "The food was okay, not that great."
Pro: "The included snacks and the seats."
Pro: "Eveything is well arranged"
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."
Pro: "Staff at Schipol airport were lovely and very helpful. Cabin crew were friendly and efficient. On board snack was nice."

Contra: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Contra: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
Contra: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"
Pro: "Friendliest economy class service I've ever encountered."
Pro: "Very good flight, excellent service and good food."
Very tight leg space in the cabin
Got passed over during the first drink service. Second service was more agreeable. Passengers are allowed to prop their feet up on the backs of the seats in front of them and to play their devices without headphones so everyone has to listen to it?For 4 hours. Why does this go unchecked? Is the comfort of a single passenger more important than all the others? I normally have nothing but good things to say about Air France but they missed the mark today by a wide margin.
Pro: "Feel like reacist Company"
Contra: "I didnt like the treatment of the crew."
Pro: "Crew are the best!"
Contra: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us."
Contra: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Contra: "Only a steward that did not help us with luggage when neede..."
Pro: "The crew"
Contra: "The time. The flight was late for 1 hour. I miss everything and also I get very late to our Airbnb and I was with my family and child"
Contra: "Seats are not comfortable for long haul. Airbus 380 premier economy. Not enough reclining and leg support."
Pro: "Entertainment programs"
Contra: "New variety of food"
Contra: "Seat angle adjustment was not the most comfortable for sleeping."
Pro: "Seats are comfortable on Business Class. Service is good"

Pro: "The crew were polite and friendly"
Contra: "Everything was incredibly poor. Flight was delayed, entertainment was outdated and the airport staff were rude."

Contra: "no chance to try. Can’t pick a special meal in short term flights and snacks are not vegan"
Pro: "The crew worked hard, but the food was below the French standards."
Contra: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours and the passengers spent this time in the cabin without a/c."
Contra: "Entertainment screen did not work; in neighboring seat it could not be switched off when we wanted to sleep; sourly employees everywhere (re-booking counter an exception); food close not being edible and cold; I forgot my watch on when going through security in the Air France terminal; when I started to say "sorry" I was yelled at by the screener who said that she will do the talking; she sent me back through the scanner twice without my watch, then once more with the carry-on and made sure that I went to the end of a very long line to wait for another screening rather than having me just go through the scanner without my watch. Needless to say, there was nothing else suspicious about me once the watch was removed. Eager to exercise her power, the security person did not seem to consider that she slowed down a long line of people waiting to be screened. I should add that I am 73 yrs old grey haired female who has traveled a lot both for pleasure and business during my entire life, often to some difficult places and that I do not argue with or provoke those in power in a situation like this. The yelling and the sending me repeatedly through the scanner, which did not beep once the watch was removed, was beyond anything I had experienced anywhere else. The sending me to the very end of the line seemed outright spiteful. (I did miss the plane connection.)"
Pro: "From the boarding, to the friendly hostesses to the food and the business class seat, I was impressed all the way. My first time to fly Air France business to the US and it was great. I recommend it!"
Contra: "I just expected better toilet bag for business but what was given out was just basic."
Pro: "The staff was very nice and friendly"
Contra: "One hour delay without any information on embarking and another hour in the plane before departure"
Pro: "The crew was super friendly and always gave the feeling that they want the customers to feel comfortable and enjoy the flight. One of the crew members even offered me to move to an emergency exit seat (without me asking to move) because I am tall. Amazing!"
Pro: "Staff pleasant and courteous fine meal and beverages! Arrived ahead of schedule in Bucharest!! Overall a very pleasant experience!"
Contra: "I was asked to change my seat repeatedly"
Pro: "All was good we didn’t feel the time 9 hours passed easily"
Contra: "Nothing special"
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: "full Meal service in coach , customer service , free wine , personal entertainment, power outlets , everything !"
Contra: "Bottom seat cushions could be a little more comfortable ."
Pro: "Premium Economy on AF Boeing 777 on this route is not "a little less than Business", but rather "a little more than Economy". Seats, in a 2-4-2 configuration, are hard but OK, as well as the pitch. Good screens and entertainment."
Contra: "With the main meal, AF serves only "ordinary wine", This looks and tastes cheap. On the same route and class, Vietnam Airlines serves premium wines, a nice touch that would not cost fortunes to AF! Also, the "Asian" choice for the main course did not look and taste like the real thing."
Pro: "Crew was friendly and polite, both beverages and an excellent lunch was offered."
Contra: "A delay was not ideal but nothing to worry about since the flight arrived on time."
Pro: "The flight crew was excellent. My husband and I flew economy and I saw the crew keep passengers well fed (several meals and snacks) and were attentive to everyone's needs and all done with a smile. I thought the hot towels for cleansing our hands before meals was a very nice touch!"
Pro: "Cabin Crew and food selections were top notch"
Contra: "Seat configuration as a first class ticket was awful. Same configuration as economy class but by leaving the middle seat empty constituted first class. I'm 6'-1" and missed the legroom...."
Pro: "Seats were comfortable, but the sliding action, instead of recline, took getting used to. Food was very good. Snacks available on demand, along with drinks. Complimentary wine with meal was also quite good. Entertainment system was first rate with plenty of options for TV. movies, music, games, etc..."
Contra: "Sitting in the middle two seats in the center of the 777 left me stuck for most of the flight. Got up only once. Wife's feet and ankles were swollen by the end of the flight. Not enough legroom to move much during the flight and not enough aisle space to get around with the plane so full. Have made flights twice as long on the 747 and were able to get up and walk."
Pro: "Loved the movie selection and the food was good too."
Contra: "Too many interruptions. Every time there's an announcement, it interrupts the movies and some of the announcements were completely unnecessary and there were so many of them, it was like constant interruptions, really annoying."
Contra: "Very warm and stiffy air on board. Need change light. Very sad neon. Probably Boing style."
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: "Boeing 777 had a lot of space. Good legroom. Timely departure and arrival, hassle free, safe trip all the way. Enjoyed the red wine; very delicious!"
Contra: "Seat didn't recline. The entertainment unit was very difficult to dislodge and raise to use (We were in the front). Movies were kind of older ones but I had reading to do so entertainment wasn't that important."
Pro: "movies were great, watched a lot of them food, while nothing to write home about, was at least tasty and not inedible the staff was great, friendly, welcoming, hard working loved that we could have wine and snacks"
Contra: "we had paid for the exit row and had a luxurious amount of room. But when we tried to sleep, our fellow passengers came and stood at our feet and talked so loudly that we could not possibly sleep. They stayed there for more than an hour. Would have loved for the staff to maybe ask them to tone it down, if not move."
Contra: "Airport handling is catastrophic. A lost bagage created the twins to be locked. Half an hour and we could not enter. Delays and huge mess in front of police checkpoint. No announcement and no care for passengers approaching departure time. And to top it all no announcement of any delays. Had to cheat my way through the priority line and run a sprint through security and beyond. Reached the gate to note that there was a delay of 5 minutes.... Grrrr"
Pro: "Pleasant staff."
Contra: "I sat next to an overweight lady and was incredibly uncomfortable my entire flight. There needs to be better regulation for overweight passengers to ensure that every passenger has enough room"
Pro: "Crew seemed attentive to needs,"
Contra: "Not being able to select seats prior to check in."
Contra: "Did not inform me of the shut down of Nice airport that Monday night July 25 from 11:30 to 4:00. I was stranded in nice. I planned to take a taxi to have it take me around a nice at night to see the city. But lost that opportunity.. Then the next morning before boarding I got inquired by French police asking why did I stay in Nice over night. My suitcase locks was cut open and a special silver plated cup,handle,was broken in my suitcase."
Pro: "Crew was truly excellent. Very attentive and friendly. Food and drink was also very good indeed by today's standards for economy travel."
Contra: "Space in the seats is tight, as it is on all airlines and all flights, for a grown man. This is notably difficult on a transAtlantic flight because of the duration."
Pro: "More comfortable airplane than typical regional service in the US. AF cabin crews are very good."
