I had heard that Turkish Airlines was great, but after flying on it from Vancouver to Istanbul, I didn't see what was great about it. It wasn't bad, but definitely not great. Middle of the road...
Only liked crew and food, airplane was old, Entertainment system was ok, but my luggage was delayed for 48 hours and contacting the airlines/help center was difficult with referral to different departments, not much of them speak english and was put on hold multiple time to find someone that speaks english, end result me giving up on them and contacting my Visa insurance.
The flight didn’t even happen.
Pros: "High end crew"
Cons: "Food and spaces between seats"
Pros: "Great crew, confortable seats, free complimentary internet service"
Cons: "Even though the same plane was used, the Cuban authorities asked passengers bound to Caracas to deboard the plane, pass to transit, to have us waiting an hour to re board. Boarding was a complete chaos. We were not handed headsets, so could not listen to inflight entertainment. Food was not good"
Cons: "Excellent service by good mood personal and cabine crew. I enjoyed the short flight."
Pros: "It was a very nice flight."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Food and service in business class were splendid."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing"
Pros: "big screens, big movie selection, nice drink options, good menu"
Cons: "very small seats! hot on plane, with no optional vents, flight staff did not respond to multiple call button requests"
Pros: "Great food and beverages, excellent attentive service by flight crew. Also liked the complimentary comfort pack and headphones. Will definitely use Turkish airlines again."
Cons: "Entertainment system started out great but technical issues after an hour into our 10hr flight so we we're unable to use it. The flight was full so changing seats was not an option."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "More alcohol choices"
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized."
Pros: "Long time n not in time Food is not enough quality n quantity for health"
Cons: "Must change catering n in time , Staff working in the airport is not pro enough"
Cons: "You broke my suitcase"
Cons: "The flight was 5 hrs late. I have put 2 older passengers with knee problems. they have to go through the satires then what's the point of getting wheelchair???? you guys took $250 more on each tickets so the passengers can reach to their destination faster. but you ended up delaying the flights. and i asked around to many people after this and they told me that you always do it. WTF??????? give me my money back...."
Pros: "Better of most European airlines.. nice enough lounge and inflight service pretty good with room to improve for sure."
Cons: "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 !"
Pros: "their services in the plain and they are very discipline as well"
Cons: "they don't do well in their transit point they should employ more people who speaks English to direct passengers in the airport. English is international language so they should train some people to direct passengers who comes there everyday"
Pros: "I was upgraded. Food was great"
Cons: "Flight was late"
Cons: "There was nothing I would need and did not get in this flight. I would definitely use the same airline and recommend to other people as well."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and I still didnt receive my refund."
Cons: "Turkish airlines used to be airline offering good food, now you only get sendwich"
Pros: "Never flying back with this airline"
Cons: "Very bad customer service"
Cons: "Lost my baggage, refused to give another ticket when getting to Istanbul late made me miss my next flight. Had to sit 10 hours and buy another ticket from another airline to make My destination a day late."
Pros: "Movie selection was great"
Cons: "The seats were stained and especially very tight on legroom."
Pros: "The water"
Cons: "There was a malfunction on the aircraft after the first taxi attempt. I understand that these things happen but there was zero communication from the captain or the crew. Because there was no power, the A/C was not operational and the cabin grew extremely hot. No water was distributed, and no attempt to communicate the situation with the passengers. The pilot power cycled the aircraft numerous times, which is normal to reset the various systems, but this made many passengers nervous. Finally the issue was resolved and we went on our merry way. In short, all crew-passenger issues could have been resolved with more communication and water. Go forth and sin not again."
Pros: "Try to introduce some Pakistani food especially from Karachi rest are very good."
Cons: "Behavior of staff are extremely good this my first experience previously I use to fly with other air line due to price especially from Karachi to USA. I hope if I will get good deals I will prefer Turkish Airlines because turkey is our brother country."
Pros: "food, entertainment"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Cons: "The flight left early, without me. Instead of beginning boarding at the time printed on my ticket, like every other airline, boarding was completed and closed fifteen minutes before my ticket said they would start, so even though I was eight minutes early I was actually seven minutes too late. Turkish Airlines service desk took the evidence (my ticket) and then refused to rebook me, forcing me to pay $600 for a new flight and for a visa to Turkey just so I could exit through security to book & pay for it. They will not be getting any more of my business in the future!"
Cons: "I had a connection from Istanbul to Frankfurt with Lufthansa . I was disappointed that TK airlines did not allow me to check the luggage through to Frankfurt because the flight was on a different ticket . As an Elite Plus member , I expect better cooperation among the star alliance member airlines . I had to check out and back again , took almost two hours of waiting in lines . Good that on this occasion I had sufficient time and did not miss the LH flight ."
Pros: "Plenty of room for the legs."
Cons: "We were flown by AnadoluJet which is a fully owned subsidiary of Turkish Airlines. We were notified of that change until checking in time. The seats weren't comfortable and leg space was too small. The food was poor. A chess sandwich and nothing else."
Pros: "I have always enjoyed my travels on Turkish airlines. Service is superb, staff is very polite and always willing to help."
Cons: "The boarding can be better organized. It can be chaotic and disorganized."
Pros: "Best entertainment system I have seen on a flight, bar none. Appreciated the USB port for charging"
Cons: "Transatlantic flight had smallest seat I have seen on a long-haul (fine on the shorter leg)."
Pros: "Great service and food onboard."
Cons: "4 flights with turkish air. All used silly buses upon arrival/departure. Also had fo reschedule a flight due to geece air strike that caused TA to cancel my flighf 24 hours in advance. Never recvd a txt, email or call from them. BOO. Had to go to airport to change resvtn as they werent answering resvtns phone. Booo"
Pros: "My travel mate left her phone on the plane at one point flying from Munich to Ataturk airport and the women at the lost and found counter were very helpful in getting the device back."
Cons: "The food on a couple of the flights was very strange/not hot/not good."
Pros: "Food, kit with slippers etc, movie choices, food"
Pros: "Friendly attendants"
Cons: "I upgraded and paid for first class round trip but only got it for my flight to italy and not the flight back to miami. Economy is too cramped for such long flights"
Pros: "The whole experience was ruined by the missed flights on both sides of the trip. My flight from IST to KHI was missed because my lay-over was only one hour, and my flight from IAD left hour and half late. I had to spend extra 6 hours on IST airport"
Pros: "Flight crew was polite and courteous. In flight entertainment was decent."
Cons: "airlines officials at Istanbul airport seemed lost and were unable to help most passengers. In flight food options were BAD. The vegetarian meal options were dry and even under cooked."
Pros: "Nice food for 80 minites flight"
Cons: "Crew should be a bit more friendly"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The bording wasn't good"
Cons: "The flight from DXB was delayed, causing us to miss the connection to LIS in IST. 2 hours after standing at the transfer desk they put us on a flight to LIS via CDG. Luggage was kept in IST. Now we are in LIS with no luggage and no confirmation on its whereabouts. Lost and found staff at LIS (Portway) showed total confusion in claiming luggage was in CDG. Today two planes arrived in LIS from IST, none of them with our luggage. Screen shows my name with mention "Not loaded" regarding the luggage. This incompetence is unacceptable from "Europe's best airline". This title is misleading advertising and should not be allowed."
Pros: "The service was amazing, always offering food, drinks, and other comforts."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Food. Entertainment. Leg room."
Cons: "Delay, had to sleep over at the airport, no hotel provided."
Pros: "The worst flight experience of my life. The temperature was unbearably hot. Seating was cramped, no leg room and seat would not recline. Crew was rude. I could not day about the food, the heat in the cabin made me physically ill and I dare not eat anything."
Flight was delayed multiple times, and at some point the aircraft changed. My seat was reassigned as a result, but my mobile app boarding pass didn’t reflect the change. I didn’t learn of the reassignment until I was already on board, and new seats were much worse. To pile on, my new seat was broken, which made for a frustrating 9 hour flight.
Loved it! Thank you Delta for your service!
Gate agents in Seattle were fabulous and extra observant. Thanks for doing a great job!
My seat next to the emergency exit could not be reclined. The meal was just fruit and sandwiches. I appreciated the fresh fruit but the sandwiches were mediocre.
I do not understand why you don’t offer Wi-Fi at a rwasonable cost
It did not allow me to check in and left seats in advance or get a boarding pass. When specifically asked agent at gate for the row that had extra leg room, as my so. Is 6’4” she gives us a row where the seats do not even incline nor is there any extra room. Also the temp in Avon was high, making many passengers sweat Improve customer service !

Cons: "Hip room/leg room."
Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Cons: "This was the longest part of a three flight trip back to DCA and there was no movies. This was completely unexpected, so I wasn't prepared to entertain myself for 5 very long hours. It would have been nice to have know this ahead of time so I could have brought a book with me. Early notification thru the app is the way to go."
Pros: "The food that was served was good. The crew was attentive and nice ."
Cons: "Comfort seats didn’t seem like much different than reg seats. Didn’t like the cattle call boarding process at lax ."
Pros: "See above..."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Staff. Beautiful excellent"
Cons: "Need more food"
Cons: "I booked through kayak and received an e-mail saying "you're booked!" with a flight itinerary and everything and then I got to the airport and they told me I had no ticket to get on the flight and no payment had ever been made and that to get on the flight I would have to pay over $1000 for a seat !!!! The original ticket I bought was under $400. I was NOT happy with this at all - Kayak screwed me over and I expect compensation."
Pros: "Fabulous fight. Attentive staff and I love the free entertainment tv’s."
Cons: "Flight was delayed ... wish I had received text notice instead of email so I could have enjoyed the extra hours of vacation instead of sitting at airport."
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. We were on time. Attendants were excellently friendly and efficient. That is so nice to not have a grumpy flight attendant. Drinks are ridiculously priced, but I wasn't suprised. Great flight."
Cons: "Hard to get comfortable even in easy comfort but easy comfort is better than typica arats."

Pros: "People are good"
Cons: "Flight delays!"
Pros: "Organized and smooth"
Pros: "Very informative staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Cons: "Flight was booked via Princess for a cruise. Flight from Vacoouver to LAX was through Delta partner Westjet. One schedule number and flight number for Delta, a different set of numbers for Westjet. Westjet requires you call them for seat assignment for a fee. Just not smooth!"
There was a delay - weather + French strike. Pilot was helpful/informative, flight crew was nice but simply talking loudly in galley and not communicating at all. No preflight water or drink even though delayed.
The actual flight was ok. But was a mess before departing AMS. My previous flight was late, so missed my connection in AMS. Then I spent over two hours getting things settled to get another flight. I was unable to complete my request online, and no one at KLM in AMS wanted to help. They kept giving me the run-around until I finally convinced them K was stuck without their personal help. It added a lot of stress (and about 5 more hours of transit time) to my overall journey.
Our flight was canceled and had to stand in line for 3 hours and 11 minutes to get on a flight to Florence Italy for the same day. They couldn’t get us to Genoa for 36 hours and had to go through Rome no direct flight. We will be contacting customer service for compensation for a hotel stay in Florence and train tickets to reach our destination Genoa Italy.
Better food more confortable seats.
Facilities for short connections.
Very cramped flight, overhead bins were all completely filled, and passengers had to fly with bags by their feet which was not very comfortable for me personally.
Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."
Cons: "Boarding was crazy. Could not everyone in the gate area."
Pros: "Everything works and quick to get to destination."
Pros: "The crew was informative"

Pros: "Crew was nice and pleasant"
Cons: "Flight very late"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "KLM lost one piece of my luggage"
Cons: "Boarding was very slow."
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "KLM staff is great"
Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."
Cons: "No reading light in my seat..."
Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Pros: "And i got it 2 days later. I had to buy a lot of items which were in my suitcase The returning of the suitcase was awfull. In tge end after many phone calls I received it On the 18/12 evening, 2 days after my landing"
Pros: "Boarding agent extra effort to improve my seating!"
Cons: "Food amount less than expected."
Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"
Pros: "Very friendly onboard personnel - I really had kind of homy feeling."
Cons: "Our lougage did not arrive"
Pros: "The entertainment options were good."
Pros: "Wifi on Board"
Pros: "The aircraft felt clean and quite spacious (decent legroom). Cabin crew was friendly and everything went as expected. Bonus points for the Beemster cheese sandwich (I was totally disappointed when they served the food, but more than pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cheese - I even bought some afterwards, from the Albert Heijn just outside the security area)."
Cons: "Very odd queue separation at boarding. Passengers were divided in 5 lanes, depending on their seating area withing the plane (for a more efficient boarding, I presume) but, by the time we all got to the actual aircraft, we formed another queue in the boarding bridge so it didn't feel like any time was saved or anything."
Pros: "Service, technology"
Cons: "Could not print by boarding card and was not allowed to board in Amsterdam"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"
Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"
Cons: "una valija se perdió. Eso desató el descontrol que tiene KLM para seguir el equipaje. No hay como hacer tracking. No hay un teléfono a donde hablar, la web está desactualizada y con información equivocada. Direccionan a usar canales de twitter y facebook que no responden. Primer experiencia en KLM y no pienso nunca más usar esta aerolínea. Llevar el equipaje o resolver un problema sobre valijas es de lo más básico de una aerolínea y no lo hacen."
Pros: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"
Pros: "Short-hop flight, fit for purpose."
Pros: "Professional, welcoming and very friendly crew, well-maintained aircraft, comfortable seat and good food. Keep up the good work, KLM."
Cons: "Not much to comment on here."
Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
Pros: "The crew were lovely and welcoming. We was given snacks and drinks on the flight which was great. Take off was a bit delayed but boarding was smooth. Couldn't complain about the comfort as was only just over an hours flight."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."
Pros: "Fortunately, the plane was not full, so people could spread out a bit to create extra room. The food was really good! (surprisingly)."
Cons: "KLM's new configuration for this type of plane made the seats even narrower than before. While leg room was reasonable, the 3 abreast seating meant a lot of discomfort, especially in the row right in front of the restroom."
Pros: "Loads of leg room"
Cons: "Loved everything"
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."
Pros: "Service was good"
Pros: "Enough space good wine and on time"
Pros: "They flew full speed to catch up with the delays."
Cons: "Departure was scheduled with one hour delay. When everyone was boarded they mentioned a leaking toilet. It took them 1,5 hours to disable the toilet. In the mean time, no drinks, no snacks, nothing. So we should depart at 18:00 but it became 19:30. Our first drinks and meal was no earlier then 21:00. The crew should have anticipated better that the technical problem would at least take one hour and give everyone a drink at least."
Pros: "The service of the crew onboard"
Cons: "Entertainment not to many recent movies and the boarding process was a little bit confusing."
Purchasing add-one was complicated. Pre-paid for second checked bag the day before, was forced to pay again—a higher amount—because they “couldn’t find” record of my payment, despite me having received 2 confirmation emails (including a receipt) for the baggage. Showed them the emails and the recipes, and even the record of the transaction through the banking app on my phone, and was still forced to pay twice. Unacceptable.
Was a nice trip got me where I wanted to go
Pros: "Amazing crew, fast boarding."
Cons: "Uninspired food. I was served the same meals 30 years ago."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The seats are tight and uncomfortable. Emirates and Singapore airlines have much more space in economy class. They also have better food. The worst new development is that you have to pay an additional charge if you want to sit together. That is pretty ridiculous for an international flight AND when you have a small child with you. I can see doing that on Ryan air, but that is pretty low for a Scandinavian airline. Scandinavians have a very strong sense of family."
Pros: "Crew on EWR to ARN was so-so. They lock restrooms at the back because they don't people hanging around the kitchen in the back. Also, the one cabin crew does not say Excuse Me when he needs to pass- he just touches you and pushes you aside Also, the one cabin crew"
Pros: "Didn't seem to take long. Crew was friendly. Landing was great."
Cons: "I assumed we got a meal, but perhaps I'm mistaken there."
Pros: "No problems. I was satisfied"
Cons: "Really rude flight attendant even after we boarded and left late. She was rude to people sitting in the exit seats, rudely demanding attention while she rushed through the safety guidelines. She then very rudely told me I had to pay for what I was trying to order, even though I was reading it off the menu? She acted as if I was stupid because I don’t speak swedish, but she did not speak the language of our destination, and it was a connecting flight."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Premium economy wasn’t as good as others"
Pros: "Guess what, we took off and arrived on time!"
Cons: "Attitude of staff, cleanliness of cabin, actual cod fish (not tilapia/suay) etc. For dinner. Good Swedish scotch too"
Pros: "Efficient boarding process."
Cons: "Seats super uncomfortable, no food for a 3.5 hr flight, just tea or coffee as free drink options."
Cons: "Last plan of the day waits for all transit passengers! Never take the last plan out of SAS hubs anywhere if you want to avoid delays..."
Pros: "The movie and tv selection were fantastic. Crew was kind and helpful. Chairs were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "It was so cold on the plane with most people including grown men with blankets wrapped up to their neck! I understand the crew moves a lot so want it cold but maybe there’s a happy medium? The cold snack sandwich with cheese and spread of some sort was awful. The main meal was better but not as good as some others I’ve had."
Pros: "The crew was great and the economy seating was roomier than expected."
Cons: "Long line just to drop bag off since I had already used the kiosk to check in, then 2 1/2 hour flight delay, charged for wine which should be complimentary on international flights."
Pros: "The staff and other guests are always so polite! Getting the SAS Lounge Pass is always smart."
Cons: "No food or even water"
Pros: "The food and service were great!"
Pros: "Power plugs at all seats"
Cons: "2+ hrs late on departure, could not confirm follow on connecting flight. Could not select seats online. Airbus aircraft ventilation is weak. Movie selection was inadequate. No "free" alcohol and high prices. Pay WiFi in economy but "free" everywhere else"
Pros: "Airplane was fine"
Pros: "It was a normal flight, only a few hours long. The crew was very nice."
Cons: "Once again, just some leg, and arm space issues but that's to be expected."
Pros: "They gave us blankets and pillows. Each seat had its own entertainment system but it only worked with the earbuds given out by the crew and the controls were cumbersome to use."
Cons: "The plane was hot and stuffy the entire trip. There are no longer individual controls for air. It was so uncomfortable and we were hot a sweaty the whole flight. The crew said that there was nothing they could do about it."
Pros: "Fast on fast off"
Cons: "We got moved twice and then to a middle seat. Why have checking at all?"
Pros: "Entire crew very attentive!! We ate like Kings!"
Cons: "Long layover in Newark! My fault for not noticing when I booked it!"
Cons: "We couldn't check in online because we had an infant in arms. So we tried to check in there. There were 3 different terrible queues. One to use the machines, one to check bags and another for special situations. We tried the machines, didn't work. A rep told us to go to the special situations line. There was a rep there that was trying to prevent people to getting into the line because it was sooo long (1+ hr). So we tied the machines again. Didn't work. So we convinced the guy to let us in the special line. It was nuts. We waited as our flight got closer and closer. Right when it looked like we might make the flight, one of the TWO reps left. When we finally made it, they said we wouldn't make the flight. We rebooked and had to pay extra. WORST travel experience ever."
Pros: "The plane was neat, clean and well maintained. The food was very good. The crew was professional and friendly. Based on my experience this is a top-notch airline."
Pros: "Clean planes, working entertainment, decent food"
Cons: "Delay (1 hour) in departing"
Pros: "Crew and plane good. Friendly and English was excellent."
Cons: "There was a delay because of a software issue. They had to shift people around manually because of it. Baggage Fee was extremely high (> $50)"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, the staff was friendly, the plane was clean."
Cons: "I was really cramped in my seat and was unimpressed with the food."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Fight was canceled and no email or communication was possible with this company. Called SAS office - CLOSED. Stood in line for 2 hours and no one came or announced anything. Checkin agents were on dope-no help and checking machines not working!"
Pros: "Crew taking care of us was excellent."
Cons: "Food terrible. Our seats in Plus were in bad condition, they move us that also were in bad condition, hey you are paying Plus to have good seats!"
Cons: "When purchasing the ticket there was no mentione that bagage was NOT included something which I assume when flying with an All Star airline. Ended up paying an extra 70 € for my luggage - not happy."
Pros: "Traveled business class after winning the upgrade bid. Really felt like there was little room for improvement. The physical set up, the service, the entertainment were all delightful. The privacy, the horizontal sleep option on a 9 hour flight were just special."
Cons: "Felt the food choices needed an upgrade. Fresh is not the only important ingredient."
Pros: "Quick Flight"
Cons: "Just a long layover, but what are you going to do"
Cons: "Consistently fails go have functioning wifi onboard in spite of marketing to the effect that it is there and free."
Pros: "The thoughtfulness and competency of the personnel. I needed wheelchair assistance and found that every was very attentive to my needs and very competent, especially the ones assigned to get me from place to place. Even in Rome, where we had to deplane on the tarmac, I had a young woman and a young man to assist me and they helped me in every way possible."
Cons: "I needed a gluten free meal and found it rather dry and unappetizing."
Pros: "Crew exceptionally carefull and nice, boarding was quick and well managed. Landing was earlier than planned so as to leave enough time to go to the next gate"
Cons: "Food was just okay, some beverages had to paid like in low cost flights"
Cons: "Seats are allowed to recline to far. When you are sitting behind someone who has reclined their seat you have no room"
Pros: "Excellent meal and very friendly staff."
Cons: "The cabin temperature seemed pretty warm."
Pros: "Introduce meals even to economy class"
Cons: "Baggager fees were high"
Cons: "A very fat man seated next to me and occupied half my seat, very uncomfortable!!!"
Cons: "Not much talk from captain about local weather and time."
Pros: "My seat did not recline."
Cons: "That the staff didn't seem to think it was a big deal."
Pros: "The crew was very professional, upbeat, and helpful. The newer seats allow for more legroom, and the selection of a wide variety of on-demand movies."
Cons: "The inability to easily view and choose a special meal is a recurrent issue with SAS - even when contacting the airline directly to rectify this issue, the ball was dropped on the return flight, and the crew scrambled to find a replacement meal. On-line boarding continues to be an issue for Green Card holders returning to the US - why not explain that one cannot pre-print boarding passes and instead must go to boarding pass issues-line as soon as one enters the airport."
Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Pros: "The flight was fine. No issues except it was late. Not a big deal."
Cons: "My bag was soaked and my clothes inside - top layer and some second layer items were wet. Some colors bled into other garments and they are ruined. Really not happy my bag was left out in the rain in Germany."
Spend 10HOURS on the phone to get on scheduled plane. BA made wrong date and was send in circles. 11houts before flight I bought different tickets to get back on time to LAX. No help from Finnair, British Airways and Kayak. Had so much stress and insanity from representatives about my flight. Kayak MUST have 24 hours live person. Was calling from Vilnius and getting machine from noon until 6pm, Vilnius time. Does Kayak knows calling rates!!! This was WORST experience ever!!!
It would be nice if there was a British Airways flight that was on time and this one wasn’t although the turnaround in Vancouver was excellent for a late arriving flight.
Long security lines at Stockholm airport. Completely full flight, we were at back of plane
I loved the FinnAir blueberry juice
Flight was delayed and they didn’t have any vegetarian meal options. You had to reserve online for a vegetarian meal. On other airlines you don’t have to reserve your meal restrictions. I was left starving the whole flight because they only had one meal option which was meat.
The seats in the Airbus flight from JFK to HEL were a bit uncomfortable. The layover in Helsinki airport was boring because there were no stores open in the terminal and there was almost nothing to do for 3 hours.
Pros: "Seating was comfortable though a tad bit cramped."
Cons: "Window was dirty from someone touching it on a previous flight. Cannot wear headphones during takeoff or landing was an inconvenience. Cabin crew made sure all passengers were held tightly to their rules but then got themselves a coffee and chatted up front the majority of the time. (Only an hour trip, so no beverages or snacks for us)"
Pros: "The crew was ok. They seemed really hectic between Heathrow to Rome."
Cons: "The seats were too tiny for business class. Nowhere to put anything. So close to next passenger. I would not fly business class again on BA Terrible entertainment. No interesting movies. I guess they tried to have movies only with British actors/actresses. Nothing current. That’s pretty bad for almost. 10 hours flt. He seats in business class between Heathrow to Rome were like regular seats except with the middle seat blocked off. Food was just ok."
Pros: "Nice friendly crew, happened to mention it was our anniversary and they kindly presented us with a glass of champagne from the posh end!"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Plane changed to an A380"
Cons: "Waited over half an hour to get off at Heathrow owing to staff shortage so the air bridge took a while to happen!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by three hours; not sure how to fix that but it was annoying. For some reason the arm rests in the middle of the seats would not go fully back and I felt like the flight attendants were talking down to me. They also could have been having a bad day too with the flight. :/"

Pros: "Amazing crew, kind and patient"
Pros: "My flight was delayed and rescheduled 3 to 4 times. Then once flight took off, There were no complementary snacks...not even water."

Cons: "Received a text telling me the flight was cancelled. Had no"
Cons: "3 hour flight without any complimentary beverage or snack. Had to request even a cup of water."
Pros: "The crew are friendly and do help where possible."
Cons: "Choice of food is poor, not having a full service and having to pay for checked baggage from what was once “the world’s favourite”"
Cons: "Couldn't check-in online. Website said to go to airport and talk to staff - should have said: "invalid passport, get new one!" That would have been so much more helpful. Substandard food, especially 'breakfast'"
Pros: "The crew were professional and helpful. The movie selection was great. I like the flight tracking 3D feature."
Cons: "The seats provide very little legroom."
Cons: "Even non-alcoholic drinks had to be purchased (and only with a credit card)."

Cons: "The seats are way too small. Very uncomfortable. Why make the seats recline when there is no room behind them? When the person in front of me reclined his seat my tray wouldn't even unfold."
Cons: "Seating. Meal. Entertainment. Did not compare well to Air Canada."
Pros: "Check-in was very easy and actually quiet compared to the rest of the airport."
Cons: "When we walked into the airport (upper floor), I didn't see any signs directing me to British Airways. We walked a long ways and finally asked someone who said we must go downstairs. More signs would help."
