Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Hard working crew members."
Cons: "No slippers for long flights."
Pros: "The Q-suite is exceptionally comfortable and the door really does make a difference. I usually have difficulty sleeping but the isolation from aisle traffic and ambient noise reduction was enough to allow some very good sleep. Staff experience was also exceptional - friendly and highly competent, looking to go the extra mile. Food was great and full menu available upon request."
Cons: "I did not find a gap"
Cons: "Wheelchair was booked for me for both flight but i could not get that service. No one available for wheelchair. Very bad service."

Cons: "maybe they can offer more snacks on the plain"
Pros: "Great experience"
Cons: "Boarding process, and in-flight entertainment and wifi"
Cons: "Boarding by bus at Doha is lengthy and not very comfortable."
Pros: "The Crew was amazing, the service social excellent. The Seat were so cramp, the best sales point fort business class"
Cons: "More space for shoulder and legs. Espicially for a 11h flight"
Pros: "Excellent food, service and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Very poor meal for vegetarians on one flight (toasted veggies on a tiny round bun)."
Pros: "Excellent service with attention to detail"
Cons: "lay-flat seats fairly uncomfortable in the lay-flat position (does not compare to the Q Suite used on newer aircraft) Entertainment system a bit dated, but decent selection"

Pros: "Service and entertainment."
Pros: "I REQUESTED vegetarian meal and did not get, just veggies salad was given and staff was just saying they are sorry, that is all they can do,, Not even a decent dessert even after I REQUESTED again for it,, don't know if I will travel again with QATAR"
Cons: "HOSPITAL LIKE FOOD GIVEN,"
Cons: "They claimed they have free WiFi, but this is not true. Passengers has to pay if they want access to WiFi. Uncomfortable sitting and you cannot adjust it to a comfortable level. Crew keeps demanding sit need to be upright."
Cons: "I am a very experienced traveller. I always book an isle seat, especially for long flights (this was 12 hrs.), so that I can get up and stretch my legs etc. The couple sitting beside me were upset that I did not take the window seat. When it came time to sleep, the wife stretched out over her husbands legs, who was sitting beside me. This meant her feet were coming on top of my legs, and her legs were forcing her husbands legs into my space, touching my leg - I had to put a pillow between my leg and his leg. I asked the Qatar hostess if she could please ask the couple to change their positions, so that my seating space was respected, resulting in no body touching. The hostess replied that she was not permitted to ask the couple to change their positions and be more respectful. Fortunately there was another unreserved isle seat and I was able to move. Due to the fact that airplanes have become cultural melting pots, thousands of feet in the air, I think it would be peacefully beneficial too all, if a very discreet announcement could be made at the beginning of each flight regrading seating etiquette, respectfulness towards others etc. this could also be printed in the flight magazine. Thanks in advance."
Cons: "Theyt cancelled my trip"
Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."
Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"
Cons: "The aircraft was changed and passengers were required to check in their hand luggage, yet remove their electronics from their hand carry. In my case I had several electronic items which I had to carry onto the aircraft and store awkwardly which created a major risk of my camera and laptop being damaged in the process. This is not the kind of service I expect from Qatar Airways, especially considering the exorbitant ticket prices."

Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "The entertainment console is dismal"
Cons: "Comfort of seat size has shrunk!!! Good grief."

Cons: "The seats were very close together. With the tray folded out it was right against me without being extended. Leg room was cramped."
Cons: "Did not know what Vegetarian Jain meal should taste like! Even goats and sheep woud not have liked the taste of this special meal. Fortunately, cabin crew member was kind enough to give me a regular Hindu veggie meal rather than my pre-selected Vegetarian Jain meal (VJML) - DO NOT CHOOSE VJML on Qatar, unless you wanna faint from the horrible food! The tray was dirty! Co-passengers in the row behind me were also complaining The audio lead of my headphone would not go into the outlet in the seat armrest! So I had to use audio from neighboring (empty) seat and sync it with video from screen for my seat. What a pain!"

Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."

Pros: "Good, newer wide body aircraft. Good service. No hassles, really. Would fly again. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Newest seating arrangement in 777 300 ER just too crammed. Used to be better. Nothing special about this flight, was expecting a little more space, a little less crowded, a bit better service. But my flight was short hop from BKK to HAN, last leg of flight originating in Doha."

Cons: "Staff were just not aware of clients needs. walked passed without even glancing to see raised hands, etc"

Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and helpful, the flight left on time and even arrived early"
Cons: "Seat 10H, the transition from coach to business class could be designed a little better so the service carts don't hit the seat occupant when they move between cabins"

Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "Excellent aiways"
Cons: "Without internet"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Please make an announcement to passengers to not be dismissive if their surroundings. Passenger in front of me was has no regard for people behind him. Kept throwing himself in seat aggressively which cause water/food on trail to fall over. Thanks"
Pros: "Crew was very nice, appreciated that they came by with water often"
Cons: "Legroom is very cramped, entertainment options are limited. After one 10-hour flight, you've seen everything you wanted to, so the return flight is a bummer"
Pros: "Crew was great, seating comfortable."
Cons: "We arrived more than a half hour late, and considering this was about 4 am, this was significant. The guy in the middle seat was tall and had to speard his legs intruding on my space."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and attentive"
Cons: "Leg room on my first flight (longest leg of the trip) was not much and when the person in front of me leaned their chair back, my knees were touching the chair."
Pros: "I thought my out flight with Lufthansa would be good but it was surpassed by the return flight with Swiss Based on my experience I believe Swiss should be a 5 star airline as well"
Cons: "A slight delay"
Cons: "I was asked to check my carry-on. I have used this carry-on more than 50x without an issue. I have even put it in the smaller compartments on smaller Bombardier jets. I don't have an issue with being asked to check luggage, but I resent being asked when others are allowed to take their carry-on onto to the plane without issue. Right in front of me while I was waiting for a baggage tag, others were being checked in with carry-on equal to mine and allowed to take it onto the plane. I can only surmise that my ticket limited me to one bag onto the plane, although they would not tell me this. This was not clear when I booked the ticket nor when I checked in on-line. I had a 40 minute connection in Zurich so was very concerned that my luggage would not make it. Luckily, it did make it to my next stop. Swiss Air seems to have different restrictions than other airlines which I have encountered before. I take ownership that I should be aware of a tickets restrictions but this was a multi-leg trip (5). However, I will tend to avoid Swiss air in the future, to avoid having to research their unique restrictions."
Cons: "I’m a small person & your seating is cramped & uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Food was tasty. Crew was very good."
Cons: "Legroom was horrible, and I’m 5’-7”! Ancient entertainment units."
Pros: "The plane we were on between Zurich and Copenhagen was comfortable and modern for such a short trip. This was a stark contrast to the old SAS airplane we flew in the opposite direction as a Swiss flight. The staff on the plane were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "We missed our original flight due to connection difficulties. We tried to hold this flight (the return flight that we had paid for in our round trip ticket) but when we arrived at the airport we were informed that they had sold our seats. We had to pay $250 USD to fly standby (and "reissue" the tickets that we had already paid for) on a flight that was oversold by at least 6, and we heard other passengers also being told their tickets were sold. Their customer service for the ticket change and the phone calls made before hand where they promised to hold our tickets, were so disappointing, it was like dealing with any US based airline. We won't be flying with them again."
Pros: "Good product"
Cons: "Seat had some problems, but the crew fixed it for me"
Pros: "11min for airplane docking and going through passport control . I have travelled the world but never seen a more efficient way than at Zurich airport.kudos."
Cons: "It was so hot in the plane and there were no air vents to keep air circulating."
Pros: "crew great smooth flight"
Cons: "no problem and happy crew."
Cons: "Boarding started 20 mins late, once on board was moved to accommodate a family to sit together. No objection to them sitting together but how is it possible that they’re in that situation to begin with. Flight was overbooked so crew offering cash to delay for a later flight, which on a Sunday evening is an unappetising proposect"
Cons: "I arrived on Thursday, today is saturday and I am still without my luggage."
Cons: "All of it"
Cons: "This flight was missed due to the delay of the first flight."
Pros: "The service of snacks during the flight. My suggestion to change seating was followed by a adequate replacement. I think I will add sparkling/distilled water to my list of water choices."
Pros: "Everything was as accommodating as possible."
Pros: "Flight is conformable.. Crew was fine."
Cons: "they did not put our special meal request for the 1st leg of our journey .. it was only 2.5 hours flight.. so its okay,.. but generally not a good thing...experience at the Zurich airport was not good. They checked our passports 3 times before we got to our gate. Swiss airlines should account for these things when they give options for the connections. we had about and hour and half layover and did not even have time to have coffee or anything before a 9+ hour flight. We just ran from one flight to another and barely made to our flight.."
Pros: "Smiley all the time flight attendants and generous with food and drink and responded quickly if need help. The person who performed the flight announcement from swiss to lax had nice sense of humor while announcement :)"
Cons: "Warm and excellent customer service :)"
Pros: "I really liked the "About my flight" application on the viewing screens because it always gave me an idea of what we were flying over and how much longer we woulld be in the air. The food was excellent and I was pleasantly surprised that I could have wine with dinner or any time the attendants offered beveragess. The attendants were always professional and helpful. They all were fluent in English as well as several other languages. It was a nice touch when the attendant wore white gloves when he or she was collecting passengers' trash after meals and/or beverage service. I loved the cheese that was served at dinner. The warm croissants served at breakfast were a very nice touch."
Cons: "Due to turbulence, I could not get out of my seat as much on the return flight, so I did have some swelling in my feet."
Pros: "On time, good service, nice crew"
Cons: "Tight space for legs when chair is in flat setting"
Cons: "Landed in NY @ JFK with a missing luggage. That happens, I know and it can be ok but the sad thing is the very poor the service offered to take care of it. I have tried to call, no answer, I tried the link they gave me to track progress: NOTHING.... Called customer service, they gave me that number and that link telling me it was the only way!!! I am so frustrated right now!!!"
Pros: "Swiss' Zurich Airport Business lounge is the most comfortable I've experienced. The flight attendants were professional, courteous and very helpful. A very enjoyable flight experience in business class."
Cons: "Airbus 330 seats are too narrow and the arm rests too high. I am about 5'3" and weigh about 150. I can't imagine what a taller and/or heavier passenger must feel like in these seats. Also I dislike the "nickel and diming" philosophy used by most airlines these days making people pay an extra $29 to reserve a specific seat. Give me a price from the beginning with a seat assignment."
Cons: "Business class service The hostess forgot my request twice. ..."
Pros: "Most things were great"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and almost missed my second flight"
Pros: "Very pleasant flight, excellent take off, didn't feel a thing. The crew was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "It was an uneventful trip, which is what you want in a trip by air. Boarding was easy, seats are pretty comfortable, staff friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Croissants and chocolate on an early morning flight"
Pros: "All was good except the snack - it was ok"
Cons: "n/a - quick flight"
Pros: "Food is decent"
Cons: "Really old air crafts with disgusting seats, I don't know when they were cleaned. Wifi options given are horrible, If you really want to provide this option at least provide like full flight or in increments of hours not by data limit, this shows how archaic is your business thinking is!! You have to seriously update .."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late. This is my second experience in a week with Swiss flights being 2-4 hours behind."
Pros: "We liked the crew, and the service and the food. We liked the screens and the choice of movies and entertainment."
Cons: "The seats were a bit close, but not terrible. The seats themselves were comfortable."
Pros: "Entertainment system. Flight crew was awesome. Always ready to help in any way."
Cons: "Just the seats were to close together coupled with small seats is at times uncomfortable. Even this is a reach however, I was pleased with Swiss being the first time flying with them."
Cons: "No plugs for USB chargers in economy. Entertainment units were broken."
Pros: "The flight staff was so kind."
Cons: "There is little that can be done to make a long haul flight comfortable when a baby is screaming and crying for it's entire duration. Its behaviour cannot be helped. But it certainly didn't make the flight comfortable, nor did the young child kicking incessantly at the back of my and my daughter's seats. This could have occurred on any flight, but it didn't contribute to having a positive experience on this one. The flight attendant serving breakfast completely ignored that fact that I was awake and strolled past without asking if I would like anything as meals were being served. I informed another flight attendant that we hadn't been offered breakfast and she was able to provide us with meals. Besides this the cabin crew were courteous and pleasant. I've flown with Swiss on other occasions and have had better experiences. I'd like to think this was just a one off and not representative of the level of service that Swiss normally provides."
Pros: "The new 777-300 is great. besides the disorganized boarding, everything else was great!"
Pros: "food, staff."
Cons: "We left late so I missed my connecting flight in Zurich, to barcelona. Had to wait around 5 hours. My friends were waiting for me in BCN and had no way to contact them!!! I enjoyed the flights with SWISS but i dont know if ill fly with them again."
Pros: "Excellent service ans quality flight"
Pros: "At Montreal I was made to go through the customs, exit the airport, get the boarding pass, go through security check again. I was subjected to unnecessary hassle as Air Canada did not issue me boarding pass for the section of Motreal to Zurich at Los Angeles airport. Had I known that I have to come out of the airport, I would not have bought this ticket. Hopefully same ordeal is not repeated while returning from Zurich to Los Angeles via Montreal on June 30, 2016. There was a long queque at Montreal to board the place as it was not organized in zone wise."
Pros: "I did not like anything about this flight"
Cons: "My flight has been cancelled with no ecplonation. They reissue e ticket for me under different name. The crew were very rude . My suitcase was lost and still I have not received it . They promised to deliver ."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time"
Cons: "Seat cramped"
Pros: "Crew great"
Cons: "Seats cramped"
Pros: "Service was fast"
Cons: "Better seats"
Cons: "Proper communication"
Pros: "non stop flight"
Cons: "Crowded, small plane. No air after people had boarded while fuel was being replenished (dangerous?), sitting at gate for 20minutes. This, after a 2 hour delay. Then a rough landing in Minneapolis- plane brakes sharply and suddenly, shuddered to a taxi rate of speed. simple snacks, not very good."
Cons: "Worse experience ever, flight delayed, lost connection, many hours in phone trying to fixed and anyway lost the flight, spent so many time at the airport with the front desk so disappointed"
Cons: "You guys didn't allow me to get in this plane and i missed my flight."
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Cons: "Plane had to divert from Salt-Lake City due to a storm. My son 17 years old traveling alone once in Salt-Lake City should have been given priority for an overnight stay instead of sleeping on an airport bench! Dinner + Breakfast vouchers would also have been nice compared to the 15$ food voucher..."
Pros: "Our flight crew were great. Pilots were great too."
Cons: "I missed my connection due to weather in Minneapolis. Was diverted into Milwaukee, but nope we are diverted to Chicago, but wait no we go to Milwaukee. Deboard into a close gate area. Rest rooms were closed. Then once refueling is done get back on and make Minneapolis at 12:15 am. Connection missed"
Pros: "The on board food was amazing, nothing like I’d ever had on a plane before. I was also pleased with the choices for entertainment."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable in economy. I could not sleep and there were no air vents. Every time I tried to rest my head on the seat in front of me the screen would turn on and get super hot. I wish there was a cover or something you could turn the screen completely off."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. 12 people had a connecting flight and they brought a shuttle bus. You dont see that kind of service any more 10 stars for that"
Cons: "Super small plane."
Pros: "The overall experience on the flight was quite pleasing. The flight crew created a warm atmosphere on what was a very cold morning. Seating was not the most comfortable but the wasn't unbearable."
Cons: "Delta should have a better food menu for those early flights unless the motive is to encourage everyone to eat an organic and wholesome meal prior to boarding, something we all should be doing."
Cons: "No food on board and we were hungry"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Slow boarding."
Cons: "No charging outlet."
Pros: "I liked the touch screen displays in each headrest. Seats and leg room comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was somewhat unorganized"
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "Flight was on time/ early."
Cons: "Have hot water for coffee and outlets for phones"
Pros: "The kind staff"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom on flight from Toronto Ontario to Atlanta. Smelled like urine."
Pros: "got there on time, no delays. very smooth"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, attendants were nice and informative, and everything was on time"
Cons: "A three hour delay on the first flight and a hour delay on the second..."
Pros: "Crew was friendly!"
Cons: "Plane wasn’t clean"
Pros: "The movie selection was good"
Cons: "Instead of a flight from Toronto to Atlanta.. it was a flight from Seattle to Atlanta, and I only had 45 mins to get to boarding because of the last minute flight changes."
Cons: "Customs massively backed up. Somewhat disorganized"
Cons: "Flight left 2 hours late. Did not get adequate cabin service. Put in the back in an awful seat."
Pros: "Airline and airport staff were great"
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Pros: "Delta always tries to do the very best. There were no issues with Delta."
Cons: "I did not like the seat assignment. It seems that when I have booked through Kayak, I get a very bad seat. In this case, it was all the way in the back - next to the toilet. The seats didn't recline, and there was no window - because we were right next to one of the engines. I will use Kayak to price compare on future flights, but I will not book through Kayak. Not sure if this is just a coincidence - but it only happens when booking here."
Pros: "On Time. Nothing else to say,"
Pros: "Friendly, leg room, on time."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "Everything from beginning to end was horrible. They messed up on our seats so I couldn't sit with my parents who are both elderly and need my assistance. The flight attendants were rude (no greeting, no smiles). My TV did not work and my tray for food was dirty."
Pros: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Cons: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Pros: "Delta did find us a new route to get us to our final destination after west jet booked on a flight that was already sold out ."
Cons: "We had to add on an extra connecting flight . We had to then fly from Toronto to Detroit then on yo Atlanta ."
Pros: "Flight went off pretty well. On time no complaints."
Cons: "Somewhere somehow you need to know that, although partners, Delta and West Jet do not share computer systems and that they are two completely different airlines. This affects ,sometimes, how luggage is handled especially when you land in another country and you have to manually transfer your own - and nobody tells you. You actually change airlines. Itinerary implies West Jet controls the entire thing. Not the case. Better job economic explaining what to With luggage and that, while itinerant implies 1 airline, they are only partners and should be treated separately."
Pros: "The flight was pretty empty so my entire row was empty so very comfy and it was the new bigger plane so lots of carry on room too."
Cons: "Nothing...I have no complaints"
Pros: "The crew tried their best. The seats were average. The food ok."
Cons: "The entertainment is non-existent. Wifi wasn't even enabled. Four to five hours without ANY entertainment is totally unacceptable especially with teens and kids!!"
Pros: "Delta flew their way back into my heart this time around"
Cons: "have to wait 2 days for the flight, so i would say that's a pretty objective zero rating."
Pros: "Staff, Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Bring back in flight meals, please"
Pros: "The boarding was very organised and the crew very friendly. The snacks that they offer is great too"
Cons: "They had to change tires before we lelt in Toronto. And we spent more than one hour on the tarmac."
Cons: "Temperature was too cold"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "West Jet gave me a "fake" ticket delta would not let me board missed the flight I had to wake up at 3am to catch. This is after I finally made it to my hotel last night at 11:30 pm. This is completely unacceptable. NEVER AGAIN IN MY LIFE WILL I EVER FLY WITH THIS COMPANY!!!!"
Pros: "Once again, the people were friendly, but I did not really experience much since I went to sleep as soon as the plane took off. I did, however notice that the seats reclined a little more than normal (which was amazing for me). I had a comfortable flight and caught a great nap."
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: "The flight attendants were great! Super friendly and helpful with everything!"
Cons: "I'd love slightly larger snack portions."
Pros: "Staffing was great!"
Cons: "The fact is that it is illegal to pack Sardines at compact as you are packing us on your aluminum cans."
Pros: "The flight being on time, friendly staff, clean aircraft.i"
Cons: "It was a morning flight from Toronto to Omaha via Minneapolis and unfortunately coffee wasn't served. Or maybe it got over."
Pros: "My first and last time flying Delta! Everything that could have went wrong, did in fact go wrong. We were re-booked on connecting flights different then the one we originally booked and weren't even notified. They have a Delta app, but it doesn't even work right. Unless you physically go to the gate to check to see if the flight is on time, that is the only was to find out if you are re-booked onto a different flight or not. I have never flown an airline that re-books you on a different flight when they feel like it. I wouldn't recommend Delta Airlines to my worse enemy!"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Cons: "Boarding was slow but they had increased number of wheelchair clients. Not their fault but was a known so the process could have been started earlier."
Pros: "Service was good. Flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "The departure area at terminal 1 YYZ was crowded and not the most comfortable experience"
Cons: "Not much legroom and no tv’s on a 10-hour flight"
Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process to in flight comfort."
Cons: "Space was limited"
Pros: "Nice touches like pillow and blanket, lots of movies and hot meals."
Cons: "My seat was very uncomfortable for such a long flight! It didn't recline and was cramped. Also I have terrible nut allergy and when I tried to communicate that to the flight staff the kept telling me to tell someone else."
Cons: "Be on time"
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: "I liked that we got served a lot of snacks and food :)"
Cons: "Nothing honestly! Smooth flight :)"
Cons: "food screens"
Pros: "Never made it on this fliggt due to previous flight was delayed. Im stuck in London as of now. Never booking with kayak again"
Pros: "Smooth boarding."
Cons: "The cramped seats, not a lot legroom and people complained once you reclined."
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."
Cons: "There was no drink service because of “turbulence”. I did not notice any turbulence."
Pros: "Service from Milan to Toronto was good"
Cons: "Service from Toronto to RdU not so good"
Pros: "Ended up flying with air canada after they switched us"
Cons: "Lufthansa switched us three times , and then when we got to the airport in toronto it was air Canada. They found our grandparents tickets but not ours. Ridicule our flight was supposed to be only 1h layover, inatead it’s 6 and we are going to miss all our next travel accommodations."
Pros: "Air Canada is a great airline too"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful. One of the smoothest flights I’ve taken in a long time"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and basically a free for all rather than by rows( back of the plane first)"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Cons: "Requested for Hindu vegetarian meal by call and was informed we would receive on flight. Got on flight to find that Hindu vegetarian does not exist. Starved on both legs of flight. That is almost 24 hours. Plane should keep extras and customer service should give correct information."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "The flight attendants all were very helpful and seemed to enjoy their jobs"
Pros: "Crew helped us with connections"
Cons: "Choice of seat came with a cost. Very uncomfortable seating. Not enough room."

Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Easy flight and on time"
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: "nice and polite crew"
Cons: "no screens/maps with route information no enterteinment unless downloaded on your own devise, I had an Iphone which is too small to watch anything.... seat hardly reclined at all and felt extreemely uncomfortable"

Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "The flight attendant was very professional. The flight itself seemed quick and easy, and I believe we landed early despite being delayed for takeoff."

Pros: "My trip was from IAH to FRA by Lufthansa flight"

Cons: "Baggage allowed in Nigeria with attendant are hostile to passengers Samuel Fadiya"
Pros: "Good entertainment options, large bathroom area on a lower level"
Cons: "Food options and space"
Cons: "2 hours late"
Cons: "I will not fly on Air Canada again...Eventhough this is listed as a Lufthansa flight there was nothing Lufthansa about it. Terrible food. Overall miserable"
Pros: "the magazine selection prior to flight, bottle of water in front of each seat and crew were great, the pilot's landing was amazing! The seat in front of me had weird legs that made the room under the seat smaller than other seats around me. So you couldn't fit in the carryon fully under it as you could under the seat diagonally from me, however, this ended up being a huge plus since I could use the legs of this chair in front of me as stepping places to place my feet during flight. Since airline does not provide foot rest, it was great to have this to elevate the feet for a long flight. More considerations should be give to provide footrest or at least these kind of foot elevations."
Cons: "The dinner and breakfast were a bit disappointing, but not bad and not a deal breaker at all since the rest of the flight was wonderful. I noted comfort as ok, but that's applies to all airlines - the seats in economy and no footrest is very uncomfortable, but that's on all economy flights, so no deduction of points there. I do want to note that I needed a boarding pass at the gate and stood in line for quite a while (I was first in line) before I was even acknowledged by a lady who ended up helping me eventually. But she was so cranky! (there were 2 ladies - one busy helping the crew and putting around barrier - she was fine, the other with a head covering (putting this hear just to distinguish the ladies as one was doing a great job)- not sure what she was doing, but she plainly ignored me standing at the desk in front of her, I didn't say anything, just patiently waited until she acknowledged me, and then she printed the boarding pass for me, but she was way to cranky to be in the job that she is in - no need for that kind of attitude."
Pros: "Food, very well organized crew"
Cons: "No leg room, long flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours and resulted in missing FRA - DEL flight. No help at Air Canada with rebooking missed flight."
Pros: "I was seated in an exit row and there were pillows and blankets made available to every passenger."
Cons: "The scheduling of the in flight events made no sense. The cabin was dimmed for take off (logical, given that it was a red-eye). However, once we were at altitude, the lights were put back on to serve dinner. Several people were woken up by this and it took like 1.5 hrs because its a big plane. Also, it was like 9-10pm local time by this point so dinner made no sense! Then the lights were dimmed and people tried to sleep. The lights were turned on 1.5 hrs prior to landing to serve a light breakfast. So, 6.5 hr red-eye turned into about 3.5 hrs of actual sleeping time. I would've preferred to be left alone and given a bigger breakfast."
Pros: "The breakfast, one piece of poundcake, that was the only highlight, and one decent size bathroom."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized, nobody knew what was going on, but the biggest disappointment is there were no movies there are no video screens on the entire plane so unless you bring your own device and have pre-downloaded Air Canada app there are no entertainment options at all! Who ever heard of a transatlantic flight that didn't have a movie? Make sure you download the app so you can at least watch the movies on your tiny screen."
Pros: "Crew was great, on time flight, clean plane."
Cons: "Entertainments options were shockingly few. Honestly have not been on a plane recently with so few and limited options of TV series and movies. I was extremely surprised. Wish I had know and I would’ve had more options for my family."
Cons: "Free wifi"
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. Plane interior was in new condition, including electronic window shade tinting."
Cons: "Staff was not particularly warm or attentive. Was never offered more to drink, and after asking for more wine was ignored."
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"
Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"

Pros: "Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!"
Cons: "The website I booked on and the Delta phone line on the printed ticket said that I had baggage when it turns out that I did not according to the check in staff and they made me pay."
Cons: "I booked tickets via Delta, operated by KLM. They lost both of my check in bags in September, and it happened again today for the same scheduled flights. Had 4 hours of layover and KLM still wasn’t able to manage it."
Pros: "Economy comfort was very nice, food decent, plenty of toilets to avoid overcrowding, and good entertainment selection."
Pros: "We got to Amsterdam on time"
Cons: "1. Paying for the seats we chose...that will never happen again...I'll fly another airline first. 2. The food was terrible. I have flown KLM for years, this was not what I expected. 3. The plane was very dirty"
Pros: "Everything is alright"
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Nice that wine was served without charge."
Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."
Pros: "Overall booking and airport was ok. Food was also actually quite good."
Cons: "A comfort of the seats... well its economy class in the end. Entertainment was just dreadful - small screen with visible pixels - I was unable to watch any movie."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Pros: "Staff very pleasant"
Cons: "Evening snack was not the greatest breakfast was pretty food"
Cons: "Services was pretty weird .. Perse or crew Leader was ok But the assistent Young one was Really bad.. aptitud and not friendly at all."
Pros: "Comfort was better than on the previous Dash-8. Food was OK."
Cons: "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."
Cons: "Food and one bathroom out of service makes an awful flight"
Pros: "Cabin crew were very professional."

Pros: "Everything. A truly faultless experience!"
Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."
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: "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."
Cons: "The Guy who had an accident when boarding causing a delay. Also I didn’t like the wait fir checking as passengers with children went before business class and should be after."
Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, all seats did not have pillows and blankets. Seating was not very comfortable, particularly as there was a box attached to one of the legs of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to move my legs to an uncomfortable angle."
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!"
Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
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: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"
Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"
