Pros: "Flight was 80% empty, but it was amazing anyway, slept through most of it"
Cons: "Staff constantly woke me up for snacks and drinks, which is good on one hand but I was sleeping so deep that it was a bit annoying."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was not full and I was able to use the entire row of seats and lie down as straight as possible to get some sleep. The crew was very friendly and allowed us to sleep most of the flight --- I guess they figured that most of the travelers prefer to just sleep and not be disturbed during a 15-hour flight. There was a good selection of movies and shows to watch to pass the time. I liked that there was time to go on the city tour of Doha and that there is a counter at the airport for the city tour."
Cons: "My flight started in Kathmandu and the layover for the connecting flight from Doha to LAX was 12 hours. I hope Qatar can come up with a schedule that will reduce the layover down to less hours while still giving passengers time to go on the city tour, if they want to."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "the crew as more customer friendly, and it appeared they really take care of customer, not just put some words on paper."
Cons: "i have requested the child meal on the web site and also requested the seat preferences, however when i boarded the flight, i came to know that they have only honored the seat preferences but not the food. on the serving menu, the veg option was available but we informed that the veg is available only if we have requested it on the web site, i had to survive with add-on food but not the real meal. crew were struggling to serve food for us."

Pros: "Love it. Newer airplane; state of the art high-tech."
Cons: "Food options on both legs were terrible. On the first leg, only one of the three options was actually available. I understand that you have to account for varied decisions by customers, but only having one of the three listed options when you're just half way through the cabin is pretty weak. Disappointed that entertainment options hadn't changed from the previous month."

Cons: "I had to go through 4 passport inspections by Qatar, was that really necessary? 3 of them within 10 min. 1 before the security check at the gate, 1 after and one more just before boarding."
Pros: "The plane was neat, clean and the services was world class. I was made to feel at home with service always at my finger tips."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "Top notch service by Qatar airline. They accommodated us. We don't eat beef or chicken and didn't know you could request vegetarian online before flight. They found a fish meal and informed us to apply for meal online."

Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."
Pros: "We love this airline!"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"

Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Cabin crew seemed less approachable than usual"
Pros: "The entertainment system was excellent and the free WiFi was good. The food was good, it was a bit more than expected as were the numerous beverages. The service was excellent."
Cons: "The free WiFi was limited to a small amount of data or two hours."
Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety"

Pros: "Javier the flight attendant was so welcoming and attentive. Flight got l fit late, but arrived on time. Service was efficient and respectful. Was not as crowded as prior flight and was able to eat the meal"
Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"
Pros: "We felt safe and the flight landed a bit early."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare, couldn’t hear zones being called, etc. assigned seats had us in the middle and basically so confined we couldn’t eat when they gave us food. Very uncomfortable. I had such a bad experience I got online and paid for isle seats for the return trip, and thought maybe that’s what they wanted all along ..,"
Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."
Pros: "I flew from Orlando DL to Dubai ,and from Dubai to cape town and both flight I was selected to seat on the middle seat,f that happens on my return flights to Orlando fl ,I will never fly emirates again"
Pros: "We had good seats & crew were friendly, but not as good as the Sydney to Dubai crew"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "got non-vegetarian food in spite of choosing veg"
Pros: "Good staff"
Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"
Cons: "Multiple times I overheard the crew rudely tell elderly foreign passengers that "no this is all we have, only chicken, if you don't want that then you'll have to wait" usually this was said to someone of color and who's english wasn't very good."
Pros: "Entertainment facilities very good. Important for those long trips. Food good too"
Pros: "Plane was the old type and not the new one that I got when flying out. Still the seats were comfy and reclined. Also the entertainment system has been updated and was brilliant."
Cons: "The food could have been in more regular intervals. I was very hungry by the time we got the turkey sandwich and chock chip cookie."
Pros: "i like the food."
Cons: "Screen was black and white most of flight"
Pros: "Flight attendants very very helpful in fixing some kind of mechanical error with my overhead light. When it was stuck on and the remote didn't work, they figured out they could reboot the system and turn it off. I'm glad I had my own headlamp so I could read during the flight, but overhead permanently off was much better than permanently on! I'm very grateful for their persistence in finding a solution. The agents at the Seattle location were very helpful assisting with our baggage problem, caused by Emirates gate agents in Dubai"
Cons: "The worst part of this trip was the surprise demand at the gate in Dubai that we check our duty-free liquor in a bag at the gate. There was no warning, no packaging to help protect our purchase, and no recourse We arrived in Seattle to find a liqour soaked bag. The liquor, of course, was a special gift and something we cannot simply repurchase. Very disappointing experience, especially after hearing good reviews of Emirate Air's generally good baggage handling and policies. The agents in Seattle helped remedy this, but it is a big hassle nonetheless as we arrive home to be dealing with damaged personal electronics and finding receipts all while jetlagged and getting back to work. my overhead light broke on the flight! but the flight attendants were very helpful and found a way to turn it off so I could sleep."
Pros: "Flight staff good attitude, condition of airplane"
Cons: "On the 15 hour flight Dubai to LAX, Only one hot meal was served, plus later, a sandwich. I'm a thin girl and barely found the food sufficient - imagine the men!"
Pros: "The flight was empty and the luxury to choose your open row of seats"
Pros: "The Captain spoke to us a few times and the crew were absolutely amazing. Best flight Ive ever been on."

When we checked in at Calgary- there were only 3 people intially. Then, 2 left and only 1 old man was left. He tried to move through the line, but could not clear us fast enough. About 50 people were stuck and not able to get boarding passes or luggage checked. We missed out flight. The scene was chaotic. Then, those of us who missed the flight were not able to get help as he was now trying to get the next people on the SLC flight through. We were so upset. Poorly run.

Baggage delayed even though both the flights were delayed.

The staff was the highlight. Only thing that could have been better was the temperature on the flight from Hawaii to Seattle. The plane was too cold to get comfortable

Cons: "Reservation said hot food, no food was offered except for crackers and nuts, flight had no real options for drink except if you are a coffee drinker or coke drinker"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "The snacks"
Cons: "There was one flight attendant who was very rude."
Pros: "Crew from Washington to Cancún were extremely rude"
Cons: "Smile"
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "Crew was quick to help."
Cons: "long flight -- 2nd cup of coffee"
Pros: "The flight itself was excellent. Friendly, helpful, kind — great attendants and crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hours. We never found out why exactly. That was a little tough but staff was great"
Pros: "Crew was great, very generous with snacks and beverages, and prior to boarding we were able to switch flights and seats without problem. All the Delta agents were extremely helpful, and had great customer service!"
Pros: "No food, late by hour"
Pros: "They were awesome"
Cons: "Nothing I was at my best on the best airline and crew"
Pros: "Good snacks, comfortable flight."
Cons: "The coffee could’ve tasted better."
Pros: "The flight was solid and they provided a consistent experience"
Cons: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 75 min because the plane wouldnt start. A differernt aircraft was needed to resume ops."
Pros: "Decent service"
Cons: "I booked with KLM (sky team) two separate return bookings on via SKY TEAM JFK > heathrow (delta) Heathrow > Amsterdam (klm) On the return leg, I couldn’t check my bag all the way through to JFK even though I stayed on SKY TEAM carriers. That should be possible, otherwise the value of staying in SKY TEAM isn’t as valuable to me."
Pros: "The Venice airport is beautiful so the trip got off to a great start. The seats were comfortable on this long overseas flight to Atlanta. The meals, beverages and snacks were frequent and good."
Cons: "In Atlanta the terminal was switched twice."
Pros: "The last time we flew Delta, we were underwhelmed. Our flight was delayed several hours and there was nothing exceptional about it when it did finally leave. That was 5 years ago, and there's been a lot of changes. There I'd now in-flight entertainment, reasonably comfortable seats, and everything was on time."
Cons: "Virtually no food options."
Cons: "Almost an hour late leaving the gate."
Pros: "The plane was really nice. It was awesome being able to view movies on the flight."
Pros: "Simple, easy"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The ticket agents and other airport personnel were tremendously understanding and helpful! As a matter of fact, a few said this happens more often than it should, which is sad and shocking! Had it not been for their help this would have been much worse!!!"
Cons: "Our original flight included a connection that overlapped and needed to be changed. I brought this to the attention of Kayak/Aeromexico and the flight appeared to changed for our entire party of six. When we arrived to depart from Akron-Canton there were MAJOR issues with Delta acknowledging the change on their end. We waited at check-in for an hour and half before this was resolved. This also happened when we left Cancun and almost missed our flight. Our daughter also had to put on stand-by in Atlanta due to this fiasco. We spent another two hours working with Delta customer service trying to get her a seat on our flight back to Akron-Canton. Had we not been to Cancun airport extra early AND had our flight delayed in Atlanta we would have missed both flights. This was without a doubt the worse experience we have ever had!! It should have been caught and resolved before I ever had to get involved. I am very disappointed and unhappy with the service offered for the tickets we purchased. This was extremely stressful for my wife and kids and tarnished our vacation. This was totally and completely avoidable!!! You can and should do better to service your customers!!"
Pros: "20 minutes ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Very comfortable and didn't feel cramped. Quick flight."
Cons: "No choice in snack and I couldn't eat what I was given. Staff appeared checked out and not bothered. No entertainment but it was a quick flight."
Pros: "Nothing..there was literally nothing that I liked about this flight. The gate clerks were helpful."
Cons: "Sooooo many things......there was NO PILOT!!!! Delta knew this 30 minutes before my flight landed and yet Delta did not post or communicate that the flight was going to be delayed and then ultimately cancelled because there was NO PILOT. Of course when they scheduled the flight for the following day not only did they not have a full crew, they had NO PLANE. On the whole, it was pretty terrible."
Pros: "Crew member Lori was exceptional. Great detail to safety and customer service!"
Cons: "could not check in on line as you did not give us the confirmation of the carrier we used which was not west jet the one you booked us through. You need to fix this problem for us to use you again"
Pros: "Entertainment and crew were great- comfortable seats, got to watch a couple of movies with headphones provided by Delta; forgot mine so I assumed I would be miserable thru the whole 4 hour flight. so glad I was wrong! Would definitely take another flight with Delta... looking into the frequent flyer program as we speak"
Pros: "I am 6’3” and have difficulty with leg room on planes. Staff help me out by moving my son and I to Comfort seating row."
Pros: "Almonds as a snack. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment and my table was broken. The air from the vents was also colder. Not much leg room and I have short legs."
Pros: "The crew as well as the pilot gave a lot of information to the customer due to a delay of 10min. Very professional. The pilot even said good bye in person to the customers leaving the plane, I really appreciated it :) The whether conditions in Seattle were very bad (windy, bumpy, rain, and night) and the pilot landed the plane as a pro! Thank you!"
Cons: "Change d for WiFi. Cheap"
Cons: "Food .gate changes"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. Delta is the best airline in North America"
Pros: "I'll chalk it up to the insanely high travel demands coincident with Labor Day."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."
Pros: "Snack choices updated aircraft"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Cons: "There was a kid screaming on both flights and t was not a good time"
Pros: "For once the food was good"
Cons: "Screaming out of control children. Parents not caring that their children were constantly running up and down the aisles. Crew unable or unwilling to intervene."
Pros: "Everything especially the snacks and in flight entertainment."
Pros: "When I finally was assigned a seat (after my "Runaround"), I got a slight upgrade: Row 12 was a roomier seat and I got a choice of fruit for a snack."
Cons: "Runaround by gate agent: The gate agent was located about 15 yards from the actual gate. I waited there 20 minutes before anyone showed up, to get a seat assignment. When she showed up, she said she would not give seat assignments for another 15 minutes, so come back then. When I came back she said she wasn't giving seat assignments; go see the person checking in boarding passengers at the gate. That agent said she couldn't give me a seat, but watch the monitor for my name for seat assignments, then come back. Why couldn't the first gate agent say that instead of giving me the runaround and wasting my time???"
Cons: "One hour late after a stay over already 4 hours."
Pros: "Very nice entertainment and staff"
Pros: "I liked the in-flight service and the complimentary snacks and drinks despite the short trip."
Cons: "I did not like that there was not enough room for our 50L Osprey backpacks to be placed under the seats."
Pros: "New comfort seats. Nice staff. Pilot kept us continuously updated."
Cons: "Unclear info on upgrade [priority boarding when upgraded?]. Inability to upgrade ticket made using mileage points or upgrade at counter at gate."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, seats were about as comfortable as any other flight."
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "Good flight, professional people."
Pros: "Crew was amazing people"
Cons: "It was fine, just tiring due to the length of the flight."
Pros: "Plane from Munich was late coming to Zagreb, so my flight was late because of that and was about to lose connection flight from Munich to Brussels. Then, Lufthansa drivers waited in Munich, put us in vans and drove us to plane for Brussels. Amazing service!."
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Cons: "Over 2 hours late, and this flight has been late 6 of the last 7 days"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and as far as airplane good goes, it was great."
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "Instead of saying what could have been better, I want to praise the excellent wheel chair service at Munich airport. She went above and beyond, helped us find an alternatively connection after we missed ours and while reassuring us about the solutions. She was First Class service. Thank you."
Cons: "More tasty food."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Pros: "Lufthansa service from JFK-FRA-FCO-FRA-JFK was gracious, efficient and altogether pleasurable."
Pros: "Not a long flight, overhead lockers had space although I wasn't helped to find somewhere. Crew lovely otherwise."
Cons: "Boarding from a connecting flight wasn't enough time, esp as our duty free purchases were selected for additional screening. Food was identical to what we had been offered on previous flight, and the outbound one."
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Pros: "The seating configuration was ideal (2-3-2)"
Pros: "The cheese sandwich was good."
Cons: "Flight left late. Airport employees weren't helpful. The plane was hot."
Cons: "Seats were ridiculously small, and I’m not tall."
Pros: "Flight was good. Boarding was delayed, but the time was made up during flight. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "It is always about baggage. Bags with priority tags should atleast be sent on a "priority". With LH this never is the case. Priority tagged bags are sometimes the last ones to come on the belt."
Pros: "Good choice of movies."
Cons: "The tightness of the seat arrangement when the row ahead reclined is extremely awkward. We are not large people but getting over the aisle armrest was very difficult to maneuver to avoid injury (falling). The security in Munich was upsetting in that one man yelled at me , "Get it out! Get it out! Get it out! because I put my electronics in one of the bins before my husband. I was confused as to what I had supposedly done and I said, "This is my husband" (who was removing his shoes) and this man's reply was "I didn't know that". We were not trying to cause trouble and we cannot understand why he had to yell."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Cons: "It took ages to go through the security check, although I have mentioned that I have a flight connection that is due to leave nobody gave a s..t, so I missed my flight. Now I’m waiting at the airport"
Pros: "Exelent crew"
Cons: "Distance too far between gates for transfer"
Pros: "overall experience is great"
Cons: "seats would have better"
Pros: "Easily the most comfortable I've ever been in TATL economy. Lufthansa's 747-8 is set up strangely: the main deck is arranged First - Business - Economy - Prem. Economy - Economy. This means that if you can book a seat in the forward economy mini-cabin, you get dedicated cabin crew, no other passengers walking through your space to get to the bathroom, plenty of bin space, and – best of all – a lot of aisle space to stretch your legs. Row 16 aisle seats are especially good, as the bulkhead between J and Y doesn't extend all the way, and therefore you can stretch your feet out. Food was actually excellent (for economy), hot and flavorful and generous, with snacks available mid-flight. Beverages also tops – gotta love Lufthansa for offering Campari (!) and more than one wine choice."
Cons: "Entertainment (music and movies at least) was up-to-date but not very interested. Boarding and transit security in Frankfurt was anxiety-inducing – between getting to the US departures area and additional screening, it took more than an hour from deplaning to getting in line. Boarding w/o group numbers was an exercise in patience. And the terminal wifi is so spotty!"
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "No problems average flight slight delays."
Cons: "Quality"
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "Great service!"

They exuded a joyful atmosphere and seemed like never sat down! This was the third leg of our long trip and they made it so enjoyable.. That is a lot as a passenger is quite tired and possibly irritable by this time. This was an Austrian Airline flight and we were really blown away..

Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"
Pros: "The crew was great. The soecial meal request was hadled well despite oversight."
Cons: "Soecial meal request was made in advance but overlooked. Did not mind it so much as eating less is not a bad idea! To err is human."
Pros: "Just as I expected. And I made my last connection easily."
Pros: "Great plane and staff"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Nice attention and good food. Plane and seats are confortable"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars..."
Cons: "So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!"
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"
Pros: "Time was excellent even considering a connection delay they had. Very polite crew members. Good entertainment options."

Pros: "Crew was great, very nice"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"
Pros: "The entertainment options were good."
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."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Nice crew; clean plane; decent dinner"
Cons: "No entertainment system; insufficient knee space"
Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Flew KLM 27 years ago and the airlines seem to be stuck in the same era. Food is poor quality... Have you recently checked the Gulf carriers."
Pros: "I got some rest"
Cons: "unable to charge my phone or watch movies"
Cons: "Unaccompanied minor flying to Lisbon overnight. Bag was lost. No real effort to assist. Bags of unaccompanied minor should be treated with priority."
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."
Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
Pros: "The food service was good and the flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The plane was very uncomfortable. The seats were small, you felt on top of the person next to you, and there was no leg room. I am a pretty small person- I can't image how uncomfortable all of the taller passengers must have been."
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
Pros: "Airlines issue"
Cons: "Profiling certain customers"
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "The food and the punctuality"
Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"
Pros: "Pretty basic one hour flight so there's not much to complain about or praise about. I got some sleep which was good."
Cons: "The crew had their general Dutch aloofness on form. Chatted to one of the stewardesses in Dutch up until she saw I had a British passport then she decided she could only speak English to me."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."
Pros: "Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Pros: "The very dirty plane was cleaned at Dar-es-salaam and became less dirty. The pilot kept us updated periodically through the flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
