Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The website did not let me choose the seat when I tried to check-in. In addition, the flight attendant was not welcoming because she kept saying that you cannot have more food :("
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly and professional. Made us feel very welcomed. Everything went smoothly from the beginning. From ticketing agents through the baggage claims. No problems locating our luggage. Everything was efficient. Will travel again with them when I go back."
Pros: "Good service. The food was good, better than most airlines that I've flown with. The seat was comfortable with good leg room. Good documentary films."
Cons: "There wad a7 hour delay in Korea and the staff at the airport were not helpful. I asked them if I was in the right place for my connecting flight and all they said was come back in 1 hour. I came back 1 hour later and asked if I'm still in the right place sand when my flight would be boarding. They again said come back in 1 hour. This went on for 7 hours and they never made Amy announcements to inform anyone of when the flights would finally board."
Cons: "Horrible delayed and no food offer or available even to purchase!"
Pros: "I love it."
Pros: "Was very far but the crew was very helpful and attentive all the way here. We had an infant with us and the crew did everything to make him comfortable when he was fuzzy."
Pros: "The staff is friendly and helpful"
Cons: "There wasnt anything i didnt like for this flight"
Pros: "I am big person, and being able to cross my legs even in economy seats is a real relief. Good selection of Hollywood and Asian films was enjoyable. I liked that our flight data was always viewable in a variety of formats."
Cons: "the cabin temperature was a little hot. The staff tunred it down after i asked, but even then it was still a bit warm for me. People who are cold can put on blankets or jackets, but people who are hot can't remove clothing, so i think a lower standard temperature setting would be nice."
Pros: "The service and entertainment"
Cons: "Sitting down 12 hrs it was very painful to be sitting that long. My seat eould heat up and it was uncomfortable also. I couldn't sleep during the flight"
Pros: "For some reason the crew seemed more attentive and maybe fresher coming back from ICN than going to ICN"
Cons: "The only problem was the long layover"
Pros: "the flight attendants were great and it flight was smooth."
Cons: "long flight"
Pros: "Outstanding customer service! We will fly Korean Air again!"

Cons: "I don't like their policy of closing all the blinds when it is daylight outside."
Pros: "Good more choices"
Cons: "Transit in Korea make shorter hour"
Pros: "I have flown many times with many airlines, and I must say that Korean Air is by far THE BEST. From staff to food to entertainment. They crew will go out of there way to do what they can to ensure you have a comfortable and good experience. I will DEFINITELY fly with them again. Kayak was very user friendly also."
Cons: "The flight was very lomg, but nothing could be done to remedy that."
Pros: "Light flight, extra space."
Cons: "One of the luggage wheels is broken. No ground personal in the airport to take care of the matter. Called and eMailed the claim. However, KAL refuses to look into the matter."
Pros: "Awesome trip"
Cons: "No complain. The crew did great service."
Pros: "Incheon airport was really nice for the layover. Korean Air staff are top notch."
Cons: "Cabin was a little warm the whole time. No individual air controls on this particular plane."
Pros: "A380 is great plane (this coming from a real Boeing enthusiast). Very Quiet! Coach had more leg room than I expected, especially for a non-US carrier. Good service and great inflight entertainment. The airline is not a US domestic carrier so flight staff might not understand every English word of a request but they try very hard. Most US carriers would not try as hard if I were speaking Korean! The whole world does not speak your language and remember that coach is coach for a reason $$$. Customs procedures are out of the control of carriers so comments about that."
Cons: "No individual control for air vent and it was a bit warm for me but most people were comfortable."
Pros: "Cabin crews are very kind."
Cons: "Since long flights with reduced body movement tend to create constipation, would be good to increase vegetables, reduce other stuff."
Pros: "Everything was perfect!"
Pros: "Good customer service"
Pros: "Staff great"
Cons: "Food selection"
Pros: "All of the flight attendants were professional in appearance and behavior. They cleaned the restrooms after each client left the restroom."
Cons: "I was coming from a very cold climate and had on long underwear under my street clothes. So unfortunately, it seemed that the blankets were "too" warm on the plane."
Pros: "The stewardesses are very good and attentive."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "I really liked the prices of the tickets for this trip, I saved money over the regular price plane tickets; since I had 2 long layovers in Seoul at Inchoen Airport. I love this airport, it is clean, modern and offers so much amenities for FREE. The best for my second time LONG Lay over. My firtst time was at an airport in Alaska which I completely forgot since it was nearly 30 years ago. The flying experience was totally good from flying from BKK as it was also a good airport. I also liked the services, the crews were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "Flights were full and of course I had a seat in seat 32E next to a man who was ofviously either sick or had a bad allergy, he sneezed and sneezed 1/2 of the whole flight when he was awake and slept most of the time so it was difficult for me to get in and out to the rest room. Luckily the people in seats 32F & 32G were kind enough to let me in and out (I got out mostly while the lady in seat 32F was getting out of her seat.) Mostly the other experiences were good overall."
Pros: "The crew's professionalism and service. I wish Korean Air could provide training to the US based airlines! Well done!"
Cons: "The vegan meal was served twice during the flight. A bit more variety would have been nice. Qatar airways has a better variety of entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was very anxious or something, controlling for no reason."
Cons: "Next time"
Pros: "The food was good, and there were enough different types of entertainment that made the long flight easy to get through. The crew members are also really nice. I also love that they give you slippers and a toothbrushort and paste. I also like the lotion that is provided in the bathroom!"
Cons: "The seats are small."
Pros: "It may be my imagination, but I feel like the seats on this Korean Air Flight lean back more and have more leg room that flights I've been on in the past. Also the crew was so kind, even when dealing with tired, grumpy passengers."
Cons: "I'm a big person so the seats are not comfortable for sleeping during long flights. Also, the Korean crew is usually excellent so I was surprised the crew on this flight was only average."
Pros: "Generally, i liked the flight. We were granted our request for a change in seats when i found out that me and my husband were not seated side by side."
Cons: "The entertainment has limited choice of movies."
Pros: "Leg room was more than most economy; however, my seat would not lay down and it was miserable for 11 hr ride from Korea to Los Angeles, California."
Cons: "Seat would not lay down for 11 hours."
Pros: "The incheon airport efficiency, the food Inboard, the transit was food."
Cons: "No snacks like ice cream or snacks. Crew was not as sensitive and attractive to passengers."
Pros: "Bathriom cleanliness and the good work of the stewardesses"
Pros: "Friendly crew and the airport in Incheon. Though our layover took 15 hours, I was able to rest in their lounge on second floor and able to took a nice shower too. I will fly Korwan Air again. Only one thing, please improve the quality of food, other than than that it was excellent experience!"
Cons: "The food needs to be improved."
Pros: "Service was attentive, food was appetizing and it was a good experience overall."
Pros: "The staff is lovely, all four flights were on time, and the price was competitive. On each flight we were presented with pillows, headsets, a bottle of water, slippers and on one flight a packaged coffee bag! These items were all on our seats and it was a treat and so civilized!"
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable that I will probably never take Korean Air again. They are hard and uncompromising and made for creatures other than human beings. This is unfortunate as it is really the only complaint I have, yet, for a 10-14 hour flight, it is crucial to be able to sleep and have some measure of comfort in a very uncomfortable situation."
Pros: "Their Services are wonderful."
Pros: "Quick check-in, meal choices on board."
Cons: "Seating choices. Overbooked. Unable to change flight time without paying for a whole new ticket. Scattered baggage delivery. Extremely long transit time in Seoul."
Pros: "Great service. Nice aircraft."
Pros: "Seat need more cushion. 17 hr of seating on a hard seat is painful."
Cons: "The seat"
Pros: "Comfort, price, entertainment, food"
Cons: "None noted"
Pros: "Service, availability of entertainment options."
Cons: "Food was okay."
Pros: "Didn't charge for extra bags no lines and were very kind and efficient"
Pros: "Everything; crew, seats, food, The best flight ever. Thanks a lot."
Cons: "N / A"
Pros: "Inflight service and all round experience with Air New Zealand was excellent"
Cons: "Aircraft cabin way too hot on both jouneys"
Pros: "So good! Food was excellent, entertainment system is fantastic! All good here!"
Cons: "There wasn’t a thing I disliked"
Cons: "We booked our tickets and chose our seats and nowhere did it warn or tell us that we were located in a ‘safety row’ where the arm rest would not fold up. So we could not stretch out during our 12 hr flight. This was the most uncomfortable experience I have ever had on the multiple trips I have done between USA and Australia or New Zealand. The seat ordering from the kitchen was rarely available, even after the flight attendants had finished food service and pick up. The flight attendants weren’t very friendly."
Pros: "this is Second times to use Air NZ to go to LA. before flight, they found technical problem, but ok .. nothing happen . Ground saffs helped us before on board . hope to use again ."
Cons: "generally nothing"
Pros: "777 with really comfortable economy class seating, excellent selection of on-board entertainment, convenient A/C power at each seat and very friendly cabin crew made the trip a pleasure."
Cons: "No in-flight wi-fi at any price. I took it for granted they'd have it, probably should have checked first and downloaded what I needed ahead of time."
Pros: "I could not fly back to the US pr the layover. I got stranded in Berlin. It was horrible."
Cons: "The airlines cancelled my flights back to the USA and the connecting flight. It was horrible customer service when I spoke to British Airways at the counter. Lady in TXL yelled at me to leave her desk and to call Air New Zealand. Air NZ said they cancelled flights then Flyus.com said to deal with Air New Zealand and said my flights got cancelled and that they could not get me another flight. I had to find out how to get out of Berlin. I had to fly to Spain to my cousin’s home because I haf no where to go and did not have money to pay for another flight from Berlin to LAX 1,200 euros. I am still in Europe stuck and it is Monday 4/30. My son needs me in Los Angeles! I will never use Kayak again. What happened to my $878 dollars????"
Cons: "Having to pay for aisle seats. Constantly having to ask for more toilet roll. Forced to have non vegetarian food!"
Pros: "I was feeling motion sick and several flight attendants went out of their way to help me feel better. I wish I knew their names as I would specifically mention them, but I really appreciate everything they did for me during that time."
Cons: "Allow passengers to choose if they want a vegetarian meal."
Pros: "Top quality flight"
Cons: "The black boxes next to your feet are oddly placed and limit leg room."
Pros: "Friendly crew, timely response, food was nice"
Pros: "The crew, food, entertainment made the flight comfortable"
Cons: "I felt I was gouged on my 2nd bag fee with an outrageous cost of $200.00 aud or $150.00US. It only weighed 20lbs. as well."
Cons: "We had to take a connecting flight from Paris and British Airlines were very inconsistent with their hand carry policy which gave me so much stress."
Pros: "everything, crew best. Bit chilly and the FA put a blanket over my name without me even asking! Yummy food, I was late to boarding but easy to get on. Can't wait until they get Wifi!"
Cons: "Paid for business class so I could Relax and sleep on the 10+ hour flight. Unfortunately, I was in seat 1G which was adjacent to the galley and storage compartments for the flight crew. Literally, every 15 minutes, someone in the flight crew was bumping my seat/bed - and waking me up. Never once got an apology. So pissed off I paid extra for business class when I would've gotten more sleep in a middle seat in coach."
Cons: "Not enough room"
Pros: "The flight crew was absolutely wonderful."
Cons: "On the phone we were trying to add one more piece of luggage to pay for and they charged us too many times.... and depending on who we talked to either nothing could be done, or it was somehow going to magically fix itself by itself. Frustrating"
Pros: "Crew, ground and flight crew, were all so friendly and accommodating. Great access to free snacks/drinks, but the best was the seats with the footrests that lift all the way up to form a couch, even for those of us who aren't able to fly business class, but are frequent flyers."
Cons: "The video system wasn't as good as say, Virgin or B.A., but it's such a small issue, compared to the superior comfort of coach in Air New Zealand to the other steerage-like coach classes."
Pros: "I had read quite a bit of negatively but although I have had better service and more comfort it was better than I had herd it would be. The in seat entertainment system was better than any I had experienced."
Cons: "For the most part the crew was very nice. But the attendant we had lacked some professionalism and seemed very tired. We didn't always get what we asked for as well with no explanation why."
Cons: "Fixed arm rests in the bassinet row. We had extra seats which was a lovely surprise but it was not much help as the arm rests don't move. Won't pay for that row again as my bub was just a bit too heavy for the bassinet."
Pros: "Free booze."
Cons: "Not worth the extra money for preferred seats. Food was terrible. I figured I could just buy a sandwich or something but they didnt have anything except for pretzels. Even the options they had available on the menu the crew said they didn't have any of it on board. Then the in flight entertainment wasn't working for some people so they had to reboot the system which took about half an hour and I lost my place in the movie I was watchIMG. I guess it helped that they give you free booze, which was helpful in relaxing after all the issues. Overall I did not enjoy this flight even half as much as I did the way there."
Pros: "Service and attitude superb"
Cons: "comfort and seats. On the flight back, although crowded, it would have been nice to have the assistance that 3 large guys could have used to find a seat. Spent the entire flight sweating between two large gentlemen. Luckily, they were polite and we all managed."
Pros: "Good Service"
Cons: "I payed $50.00 USD on a seat so I would have a bigger seat. However, when I got into the plane, the lady that was going to be seating next to me asked me if I could change my seat with her husband; which was a regular seat. In order to avoid an awkward 12 hour flight, I agreed to change my bigger seat for a smaller seat. I felt disappointment that Air New Zealand separates parties and leaves room for uncomfortable situations. I really did not know what to do in this scenario, I paid for that seat but was in a way forced to give it a away without any refund in order to avoid 12 hours seating with some stranger's wife."
Pros: "I dreaded 14 hours on a plane but Air New Zealand made the trip very comfortable. The meals were delicious and staff responsiveness was great. I got lucky and didn't even have anyone sitting beside me. Great experience from every angle."
Pros: "Air New Zealand may be one of the best airlines I've ever flown. Fantastic service and great flight!"
Pros: "Comfortable Premium Economy seating is well worth the cost for such a long flight. Food was excellent and crew was very attentive. Entertainment system was very limited and clunky to use. The safety briefing is the most entertaining in the industry. Would readily choose New Zealand Air again."
Pros: "The service and entertainment. And blankets to keep you warm because it does get cold on the plane."
Cons: "Small seats, no room."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Customer service and ability to sort out technical issues were truly appalling. My touch screen monitor crashed and the controls that would enable me to alert crew members for any concerns also didn't work. Both issues happened twice. The second time, I informed them that if these technical issues continued to fail and couldn't be resolved, I needed to be placed in another seat, of which I specifically told them was not to be a seat far behind my current row seat. Instead, they went and offered me a seat that was 22 rows behind, especially after I had paid extra fees to sit in the seat I was given higher up the aisle. I also informed them that I wasn't feeling well and the closer I was to the exit when we landed, the better. They ignored these concerns. That is unacceptable considering that it was their system that was faulty in the first place that led to these problems. Their staff also failed to regularly walk the aisles to ensure customers were okay with the service. I've been on planes whereby the crew is constantly walking around to ensure everyone is being taken care of. For example, I had a great experience with Korean Air where I saw staff every 10-15mins checking on customers. Air New Zealand completely failed in this regard. When my system crashed the second time, because I couldn't call anyone in the crew using the controls on my touch screen, and the person sat next to me was asleep (didn't want to wake him up to use his device to call!), I waited 25-30mins before going up to the crew station to seek help. I had to wait an additional 10-15mins before I even saw someone at the crew station. There are some other issues I encountered but the above were the main ones. This is the first time I've actually had to criticize an airline for it's customer service. I've been travelling for over 25 years and never encountered what I did today. I certainly won't be flying with them again."
Pros: "Agents were helpful once entering the plane. They take the time to greet us, look at our ticket and direct us which row to take. Very helpful."
Cons: "Space is a factor based on the price. It is such a long flight and room for our feet or even a foot stool type would be nice to have."
Cons: "The seats were extremely narrow. The stewards were un-attending The LA airport area was the pits, there are no one to help with your bags. I had my husband in a wheelchair and there was no one to help me with our bags! The security at LAX was joking and laughing amongst themselves and did not even look at us when they let us back into LA. We landed way far away from the building and I had to take my husband in a wheel chair and my hand luggage into a buss before we got into a building and we were the last ones to arrive, Vicky"
Pros: "Handsome, kind and efficient crew. Good amount of space in and around my seat. I was not cramped, although I was in the economy section. The plane interior was indeed nice. Power outlets (both USB and 110V DC) in my seat (I assume then, every seat had that). I fly few times a year between the West Coast and Europe and my overall flight experience on this flight I think was the best one I've seen in years. Food, quality and selection was good. Nice wines in economy. Sufficient number of clean, sufficiently roomy and well stocked toilets. The fare rate I was able to get was outstanding and contributed to the overall satisfaction. Even my neighbor, in the seat next to me was very polite, quiet and pleasure to travel with (though here New Zealand Air perhaps had less of an influence)."
Cons: "I will not use kayak again, because they used this terrible gouging airline that we did not know we were using for our flight. We had to change the flight date of our sons trip and they wanted to charge us $350 to change the flight and then with the difference in the flight it was gonna cost us $530 on top of that. The total for our flight was going to cost us $880! We found a brand-new flight with another company for $670! It is disgraceful! I will never use KAYAK because they used this airline and they don't let you know it! we never got our money back for the flight we did not use. It was a hard lesson learned. Whole thing"
Pros: "I was able to watch the entire Game of Thrones Season Six on the flight to Vancouver, and catch up with The Walking Dead on the return flight."
Cons: "The menu was poorly planned with very little fresh raw salad . The beef choice had potato salad and potato in the hot meal."
Cons: "People allowed to bring on too much carry on that will not fit so we all wait in the aisle behind them . Dumb."
Pros: "Good entertainment system but it needs servicing. The USB port was blocked and we couldn't use seat chat or screen share.. Not good for a long flight."
Cons: "The seats were unbelievably tight for a flight of this duration. I'm small. We purchased the economy plus seats hoping that there would be a bit more room. There wasn't, so it was a waste of $100 each way for the two of us. We had much more leg room on our US domestic flight. Flight attendants don't appear to like their jobs very much. They were overly stern and impatient with passengers. Reminded me of the nuns in Catholic school growing up. Do they have any idea how uncomfortable the passengers are when we are packed in like sardines? Finally, the food isn't anything like they described and they served diet portions it seemed. I'm at a loss for why this airline was rated so highly"
Pros: "Lots of selections"
Cons: "Adult movies with many sexual scenes need to be avoided in the aircrafts! Children behind or sitting the next roll also watched it! Very concerned if I should book your airline with my 2 teenagers in the future..."
Pros: "amazing accommodations and comfort with everything accessible for technology great staff, kosher means as i requested were on point, arrived late totally my fault, to both departing and arriving flights and they really did an amazing job making sure i get on the flight, international"
Pros: "Air NZ is the best Airline."
Pros: "The crew was Ok, friendly but not overly friendly. Just professional."
Cons: "Its just a long flight and economy is just not comfortable to sleep in. Get business."
Pros: "This was my third flight with Air NZ.. Flight Crew excellent, entertainment excellent, food great. Especially enjoyed the morning tea after the long flight from London to LAX."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 1 hour and gate was not posted until right before boarding causing us to rush clear across the airport. However boarding was quick and made up time in flight so all worked out."
Pros: "Everything was good except"
Cons: "Seats were very crowded. Small walkway- difficult to get through with carry on baggage, difficult to pass, when attendants were helping and bent over to hand drink their body/ behinds were bumping into me"
Pros: "The Entertainment was amazing, I really enjoyed watching movies."
Cons: "The crew asking for a tip when asked a question- I think that is rude"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The monitors in our seats didn't work so we couldn't watch anything the whole flight. The light in our seats didn't work so we weren't able to read either. One flight attendant just seemed annoyed when we told him we about the issue. Another one was helpful and gave us a torch so we could at least read. We were given Air NZ vouchers for $120 but we weren't able to buy anything from the store."
Pros: "Air New Zealand is a great airline. Top notch crew, very comfortable seats and you arrive feeling rested and pampered. Food and entertainment only outdone by the patience and professionality of the crew."
Pros: "The plane ride was smooth"
Cons: "Getting booked onto another flight and not having comfortable seats ( even though they overbooked our flight.) we went from Canada to New Zealand The flight attendant suggesting I was pregnant and I'm not just little fat."
Pros: "Comfortable seat Decent food Friendly attendants"
Cons: "Very annoying entertainment system - the navigation is unintuitive and annoying. Decent selection of content but so annoying to interact with."
Pros: "Decent flight, but not a whole lot was 'above and beyond' my expectations."
Cons: "Not many food options for Vegans. Entertainment TVs hard to used and looks outdated."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional, the on board entertainment was fantastic, and you could order snacks and drinks from your seat at any time."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped, extra narrow and almost no leg room. With aflight this long it go rather painful. The upsideit that I was able to distract myself with the provided snacks, drinks, and movies."
Pros: "Excellent customer service and made the long flight as comfortable as possible even in economy (we didn't feel like the "ignore step-child" like in other airlines)."
Cons: "The breakfast was a bit gross, but the dinner was great!"
Pros: "The crew were very accommodating and the bar was complimentary! The food was average but the entertainment provided was excellent. Anyone interested in current movies or TV shows will be pleasantly surprised by the selection available. 10 hours never went by quicker!"
Pros: "Free hour of wifi as a T-mobile customer. The ability to change seats right up to the moment of boarding. It was my first flight ever and The Captain and crew did a great job to make the flight enjoyable and comfortable."
Cons: "As someone who has meticulously traveled the world over on Google Earth, i was enthralled to finally get to do it in real life. I was looking to bring up a GPs trackers or some kind of map application so i knew where i was flying over. I couldn't gain any access to any type of application due to GPS restrictions. This might be a rule for plane rides that i'm not aware of however."
Cons: "Lost my biggest piece of luggage and they ripped another one , absolutely ridiculous !"
Pros: "I fly Alaska airlines frequently. Rarely are they not on time. The crew are very friendly. I did not purchase any of the food items this time. However, I have enjoyed the cheese platter on previous flights. Most of my flights are short (San Francisco to Palm Springs) so only water is served and purchased drinks. Alaska has a fantastic mileage plan and the bonus is the "companion tickets". Alaska airlines is one of the few that has a "price guarantee." I would not consider another airline unless Alaska does not have that route."
Cons: "I carry photo equipment in a carry on bag because of expense, damage control and temperature control. Unfortunately I can not leave it for baggage people to handle (although I would love to.) When I got my carry on to the greeting flight attendant I explained I had just finished a shoot and I was sorry that I needed to keep the bag as carry on. Flight Attendant: there was nothing she could do and I needed to go back down the stairs, even though people were still boarding and leave it with the baggage people. Me: "In the past the flight attendant put the bag in that closet." (I pointed to the locked closet where they keep their bags.) Flight Attendant: I cant open it because it's locked. Me: "The key is kept there." (I pointed to where the key is kept. I know because I've done this trip so many times before.) Flight Attendant: "See if it will fit under your seat." It did... but I had my knees in my chin for the entire flight. Thanks, Ann"
Pros: "Liked the opportunity to check in a day early and pick my own seat; also liked the option to pay a nominal fee $15 plus tax to board early."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "the seat confusion was a hassle but the crew was nice about it."
Cons: "the flight was oversold and i didn't get a seat assignment until the last minute. Then the seat they gave me was already booked to someone else, so i had to wait again on the plane to get a seat. on my outgoing flight to seattle a few days prior, i intentionally didn't check a bag because i had a late arrival and early work the next day, was forced to check it on the plane and then they lost it for an hour after i landed so i didn't get home until 2am. frustrating, but again the crew was nice about the mistakes."
Pros: "Everything done by Alaska"
Cons: "Wheelchair service was inadequate and wait time in San Francisco immigration was much too long."
Cons: "The flight was late due to weather which was not their fault but the crew was terrible. They did not attempt to adjust the air until after we took off even though everyone was saying it was hot. After we took off they tried to adjust it and said it was broken. It was only blowing HOT air. If they had attempted to check befor we left they could have fixed this. During the flight the attendants acted like everyone was bothering them by saying the hot air was making them sick. They "apologized" When we landed in a rude sarcastic tone. Would nerve suggest this airline and I am platinum with American Airlines"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating. The seats were comfortable. Boarding was pretty fast and on time. I also liked that we got to pick our seats. My husband needs an end seat because of his broad shoulders."
Cons: "I didn't like that we had to pay $25 for each baggage we had to check-in. I guess it depends on what type of "member" your are with Alaskan Airlines"
Cons: "My wife and I never got anything to drink and eat your crew skipped over us. When I flagged someone down told them what happen, they still didn't bring anything for us. I am very disappointed In the service."
"Wish the flight attendants didn’t talk so much and so loud on the speaker. Captains gave updates which was nice!"
"The whole process sucked very unorganized and not enough I do available"
"I booked a flight SJC to ORD. It included a layover in LAX. I had to transfer my own baggage and pay for baggage twice!"
"No individual TV screens. So you must have a device like an iPad or a phone or a laptop to connect to their media service. Movie selection was mediocre at best. A lot of useless programming in my opinion. Also had a first, was asked to put my mask on between sips of a drink. That’s the first I’ve ever heard of that! We ate out every meal for a week straight and no one asked us wants to mask up between bites or sips. Nor did other Alaska flights ask us to mask up between sips. Thought it was pretty ridiculous."
"I missed a connection due to a 4 hour maintenance delay. The worst part is that I can't even attempt to rebook the flight because there is no way to contact Iberia. The desks were closed because there were no more flights that day. They never answer the help line or facebook. I simply cannot, in any way, even get ahold of a person to help me rebook this flight that cost 1000 dollars and was ruined by the fault of the airline. So I am stranded in LA right now, frantically trying to get ahold of anyone from Iberia to help me get to Spain."
"Thank you for giving us new planes and plenty of storage space."
Cons: "Refundable tickets"
Pros: "The flight wasn't full which is always nice and they served full size cans which is also a nice little note."
Cons: "The plane was pretty old and people just started sitting wherever. It was chaos as my wife and I sat in our assigned seating and just watched people wander like animals."
Pros: "Easy boarding. No issues."
Cons: "Better business class seating, better food and in seat entertainment as it isn’t enjoyable watching movies on an iPhone."
Pros: "Comfortable seat and free drink"
Cons: "Probably if they offer few snack like a chip or nuts."
Pros: "Crew, efficiency, movie/show options"
Cons: "No alcohol, food options (vegan), tv screens in seats"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Pros: "On time flight, friendly crew"
Cons: "Spacing, with covid one empty seat for every 3 row seat would be better"
Pros: "Danny working in First Class was amazing."
Cons: "The food."
Cons: "I never received the flight. It did not exist. I had to buy another ticket."
Pros: "The line was fast the agents were friendly, plane was clean flight attendant were nice"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The wifi was expensive:("
Pros: "Ok crew, not the best planes and service but good enough to get from A to B. Was I happy with the flight? No, will I use them again? If the price is right for sure."
Cons: "Friendlier crew and better service"
Cons: "Waiting on one way too long. More than 1hr"
Cons: "The seats/head rests were very uncomfortable, they just seemed to be worn down."
Pros: "Crew was thorough"
Cons: "Food choices"
Pros: "The crew was great, the plane was clean and updated, the in-flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "On both of my Alaska Airlines flights we took off later than scheduled, by over 15 minutes. It could have been due to the congestion at LAX. And the seats were comfortable if not a little cramped. I also wish we would have been offered adult beverages on my late flight into SFO -- helps for sleep."
Pros: "Excellent all"
Pros: "Thank you so much for getting my confused and forgetful mother in law onto the right plane and back and forth from the gates."
Cons: "Don’t know"
Cons: "Crew could have been just a tad bit more friendly"
Pros: "The crew at Alaska is top tier! They are always the friendliest, on the phone or in person. I was stuck in the Seattle snow storm and they were so helpful with flight changes"
Cons: "There was no tv on the plane and no complimentary snack/drink"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Loved the chargers on the seat and in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable, crews are all approachable and helpful."
Cons: "My experience: Animal Abuse during boarding, cancellation of flights every single time I’ve booked flights, horrible mess with customer service, just don’t care about people..."
Pros: "Excellent and courteous cabin crew. United Flight attendants are a surly bunch of weaponized employees that seem to so hate their jobs and/or their airline... but you all know that. Life is too short."
Pros: "I like the idea of allowing pre-boating for families with small children or elderly parents to some extent"
Cons: "I did not like that the airline allowed more than 1-2 people to accompany 1 small child when pre-boarding. I happened to be able to go in with the general boarding but was one of those who was first in line within this group. My seat which was 5C already had no overheard room!!! It appears that 1 child was accompanied by 4 adults when they pre-boarded and in addition to their carry-ons, they put their foldable stroller, backpacks and totes in the overhead bin!! The airline announced a request for people to leave the overhead bin spaces for bigger carryons but does not enforce it. Flight attendants should not feel uncomfortable actually asking to whom the backpack or tote belong to and tell passengers to put those under their seats. Somehow, passengers need to be educated on proper etiquette. Also, pre-boarding should only allow 1-2 people to accompany a child or an elderly person. Pre-boarding should not be taken advantage of by all adults traveling with those needing it."
Pros: "Excellent crew and service. The flight was comfortable and the inflight entertainment really helped make the flight shorter."
Cons: "In the SF airport, your crew accepted me to pay for $25 for putting my suitcase into the plane. But then, she mentioned that the flight was delayed and there was no way that I can made my connection from LA to Indianaplis. So I was given a boarding pass with my suitcase ($25 paid) only to LA. The front desk asked me to try other ways when I arrived LA to see what can be done. When I entered into the gate, your CS changed my flight to UA after I have presented my case. However, I had to pull the suitcase out from Alaska, paid another $25 to United and started the trip all over again. All the while, your crews expected me (an alien from Asia) that I should have known every thing get it through, or to claim my suitcase charges. I am really disappointed for the lack of understanding. To you, it may be something happened so common everyday. To me, I was totally lost to handle this."
Pros: "Excellent crew. very friendly. No attitudes"
Cons: "they were not ready for us at LAX. We spent 20 minutes in a remote corner of the airline waiting for a gangway so we could go down to the tarmac and wait another 50 minutes for buses. No gate, no buses, just standing around. Terrible planning for our arrival"
Pros: "That the problem was eventually fixed."
Cons: "I arrived at the SFO at 715. I checked in and went straight to my gate. After sitting in the gate area just a few minutes, the women at my flight desk announced a delayed flight(flight would depart at 10 instead of 855) The asked that passengers come retrieve their meal vouchers. She checked my boarding pass and I went and ordered myself dinner and returned to sit down close to 9pm. I waited for the screen to change for the new flight information but it never did. The terminal was busy with music and basketball finals.lost of mumbling announcemrnt so I kept checking my flight screen and it still had the original flight. I sat waiting. All of a suddent the tv changes and it’s a different destination??? I got up and asked why my flight wasn’t posted and she told me ‘sweetheart your flight left 20minutes ago.’ I was shocked. How could this happen? She informed me i’d missed my flight that was never delayed. I was so tired and worried and she kept calling me sweetheart. Telling me there were mo more flights but that she’d put me on a 6am the next morning. With my disability I was so worried I pushed and pushed and spoke to both counter airling people. Finally, I got mad and she put me on united. I am so upset about the whole ordeal. That was a surreal awful experience that had me crying on the way home."
Pros: "Plane clean, boarding efficient, pilot cordial, flight confortable, arrived early despite delayed departure."
Cons: "Because video playback system was inoperable (not an issue for me—I am happy to read during the flight) the young crew had to perform safety announcements manually but were obviously ill-practiced and inexperienced at this, bungling their reading and even seeming not fully to understand the words. (They also botched announcing introductions of the pilot and crew, not seeming confident who was on board or as if they in fact knew their names.) This was of course unprofessional but also introduced doubt how reliable they would be in an actual emergency."
Pros: "Not much to like this time around"
Cons: "Boarding attendants announced that the flight was delayed just 10 minutes before boarding time because of weather. Flight was from Seattle to Los Angeles and the weather was clear on the flight path. Two hours later, an announcement was made that it was actually because of congestion at the airport (poor planning) and yet, they did not offer anything to the passengers for the inconvenience. We boarded the plane two hours late, only to sit on the tarmac for another 40 minutes. This situation could have been handled so much better by Alaska Airlines."
Pros: "Plane was a little warm, air didn’t work great, also delayed on the runway for about 45 minutes before takeoff"
Cons: "They delay on the runway"
Cons: "I was overcharged for the fare. I was shown a fare for $627 n got charged $688.00. why?"
Pros: "Same as first trip but this time the manager gave us some crackers and chocolate because we asked her to give us something to eat"
Cons: "Same as first trip but this time we were more mad and the food was like rubber we told the manager and she brought us some of the crews food and we still didn’t have any food because it smelled rotten"
Pros: "Emirates crew knows how to manage the kids well and they have the right menu for kids, right entertainment"
Cons: "everything was mostly fine"
Pros: "Every things"
Cons: "Crew was rude."
Pros: "Spacious for the kid to walk"
Cons: "For this flight boarding was smooth as my previous flight was late and an Emirates employee ran us through security and to this flight on time. For the people reading this review who might think my kid would have been messy or cranky on the flight so we were treated this way, that was not the case, she not even cried once or made a mess. Same as my previous flight with crew, Crew were so late in responses, my wife actually walked to their place 2 times to get milk for the baby. Also she was not served food at all when they served breakfast. We requested Hindu meal and I was served hindu meal and she was missed and when they served lunch she was told she has not requested prior to the flight and can only be served a regular meal, which she gladly accepted. Kid was not served any food again, so we gave her solid from our meal. When we requested some food for the baby she was given a banana baby food(Kid did not even eat it). Taste of the food was edible(Not great). Overall do not fly emirates with a kid"
Pros: "Food, entertainment choices"
Cons: "Despite premium price, seat selection was not available unless you pay extra; Family of 4 dispersed and given only middle seats except one aisle seat; But that seat couldn't recline. Complained and asked how A380 seat with 16+ hour flight wasn't reported earlier. Crew admitted there's a log about seat 63C (EK215 DXB-LAX Jan 7) but Airline chose to ignore it! Crew was apologetic but was offering me free drink (almost seemed like bribe). One of the checked bags torn when we collected it at LAX; Overall, pretty bad but most annoying is the fact that they nickel & dime for seat position and lot of families were spread all over (not just mine)."
Cons: "Too cramped in economy. Food good, staff helpful."
Pros: "No wonder Emirates is one of the best airlines in the world!"
Cons: "The layover from Karachi to Dubai is less than 2 hours. The flight from Karachi is always late n it makes me nervous that I might miss my flight for LA. It has happened to me before. You should maintain your punctuality in Karachi as well. Even the boarding process is extremely flawed, it is very frustrating. Plz maintain your reputation everywhere in the word!"
Pros: "The service was excellent and the crew tried to keep everyone comfortable. Food was good and great selection when it comes to entertainment."
Pros: "Overal very comfortable and good service aboard plane."
Cons: "Sat on plan after boarding for an extended time before takeoff. I think it was a maintenance thing. It happens so no biggie. Table and magazine pocket needed cleaning from prior flights. Made me uneasy from a cleanliness point of view so they took a hit on comfort."
Cons: "Wheel chair travellers not comfortable as they didnt find help and also have to wait for long time to get their turn"
Pros: "Not many passengers got to spread out"
Pros: "The entertainment is excellent- so many choices. I also really appreciated having a plug and a port in the house seat, I could keep my devices charged and feel free to use them as much as I liked. The attendants were friendly and helpful the entire flight."
Cons: "The food was not amazing, for a near 17 hour flight, I think 1 more snack would have been welcome. Also a personal bottle of water would have been great. I had to ask for water several times and I noticed lots of other passengers doing the same."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Not enough Veg food even though requested well in advance."
Pros: "I was fully satisfied"
Cons: "Onboard upgrades for one way was too expensive"
Pros: "Everyone was super friendly. I enjoyed that the plane was empty that we could all change our seats to be more comfortable."
Cons: "The walking to board my connecting flight was overwhelming, a lot of walking. Also, I understand the food isn't from a 5 star restaurant but the lamb I ate was over cooked and felt very rubbery. As the crew members went around aking if you want Tea or Coffee, I said I wanted coffee. The coffee was cold so I couldn't even drink it, i know I can ask for another one but I felt so disappointed that I'd rather have nothing. My monitor had lots of weird lines on them as the colors were so off on some areas and good on other areas."
Pros: "I like the legroom on Emirates."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "Inflight service was good."
Cons: "Boarding was really poor. It need to be systematic. Lot of confusion and announcement was hard to hear."
Cons: "the baby crying next to us crying thrugh much of the flight. We're still exhausted from not being able to sleep well during the flight."
Pros: "Comfortable and well cared for during the flight"
Cons: "Wheelchair help in Dubai is horrible. They need a disabled or aged person on their staff to understand our problems Too many carriage changes and unnecessary location changes. We do not need a guide to understand where to go and lead us along. We need physical help."
Pros: "Wide selection of movies, TV shows and other entertainment. Food was decent. Crew was attentive enough."
Cons: "They did not have special meals that I ordered but the crew tried their best to make it up. But they had the same collection of movies both ways. My return flight was a month later. Entertainment set of was pretty good on their Boeing 777-300Er flight, but average on the A380-800. The 16 hour flight will not be pleasant for most. Why the toilets are so compact? I would pay extra for bit more room. This is a problem with all airlines. They allowed me to take a laptop and a hand baggage in LAX but forced me to check in the hand bag in Dubai. They pick random passengers for this. Irritating."
Cons: "The screen blacked out mid flight (on a 16 hr long flight!) and there was nothing anyone really tried to do to fix it except 'reset' which did nothing. Unfortunate this happened when the flight was so long."
Pros: "They canceled our flight because they were over booked ,we had to stay overnight , overall very unhappy with the airline , they forced us to purchase new tickets , will take legal action against the airline"
Pros: "The best economy seating out there. Emirates still makes you feel like a person even though you are in economy. Unlike other airlines Emirates flight crew treats you very well, they are polite, the food is good and the seating is very comfortable. It makes a 16 hour flight pleasureable. Thank you Emirates!!!"
Cons: "after the origin flight was already 12 hours late, had to wait another 8+ hours at Dubai airport for this connecting flight."
Pros: "The entertainment system had plenty of variety and choices."
Cons: "Very poor service, terrible food. Flight attendant spilled juice on me."
Cons: "Baggage took over 40 minutes to come out."
Pros: "The food and care was great."
Pros: "Every aspect of my roundtrip flight from Los Angeles to Dubai was great and excellent. I feel very fortunate to experience to have a flight on Airbus 380 with Emirates Airlines."
Pros: "Every opportunity I get when traveling will fly with Emirates. The flight staff have always provided excellent service regardless of of being in economy class. The restrooms are always clean. I also enjoy being advised by the flight crew of any impending turbulence before we encounter. Emirates has always provided me an excellent flying experience despite my fears of long distance traveling."
Pros: "The flight was great. The seats were spacious and comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, they give you a little pacquet that includes tootbruch and toothpaste, eye covers and socks. Food was ok, entertainment system is second to none."
Cons: "Some of the crew were a little rude when asking questions or just approaching them for simple things like our entertainment system not working. They weren't able to help us and it took me theee times to get them to pay attention to us."
Cons: "Their customer services is not terrible, it's nonexistent."
Pros: "Awesome flight...got a business class ticket and I loved each moment during the journey"
Cons: "Indian food was not that tasty and quality needs to improve"
Pros: "Again, the crew of Emerites Air are wonderful!"
Cons: "I ate a vegetarian dinner that id not agree with me, and spent the last half of the trip near the bathroom."
Cons: "D seats are exrremely uncomfortable. Leg space is as good as none. My knees were hurting as they were touching the seat infront of me. D crew gave very slow service. I was sick and needed hot water, even after calling for ur for more than 4 times , the crew constantly forgot about it. Food was alright. I dont see myself ever flighting back with Emirates jus for because of the seat discomfort and lack of leg space"
Pros: "The crew surprised my fiancé and me with a champagne and cheese cake toast in the middle of the flight. It was incredibly thoughtful as I had only told two of them about our new engagement."
Cons: "We could clearly hear several of the crew bickering about things at several points of the flight."
Cons: "Sorry that the passengers leaving left so much trash. Amazing how inconsiderate passengers really are."
Pros: "I. Had bulk head seat 45g, the seat was stuck and could not recline ,the tv was stuck too so could not watch anything was boating and it was not comfortable at all"
Pros: "First of I was bumpedI to business without asking. I appreciated ho attentive the flight attendants were. I also enjoyed the gourmet airline food."
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty. Didn't get the Muslim meals that I ordered."
Pros: "I flew Business and it's like first class all the way. Seats are so comfortable-entatinment and a lounge area that feels like a top one With drinks and food-you can almost forget you're on a plane. Helpful. Flight attendants and great food and wine meal selections Fabulous airline I chose for long flights. Incomparable"
Cons: "I loved it all!"
Pros: "Attentive crew Amazing food choices Excellent entertainment sys Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Besides a small blanket and a seat that doesn't recline for a 16 hour flight, everything else was ok."
Pros: "Food, movies"
Pros: "The flight to LA was on Jet Blue and it was very mediocre. It might be worthwhile helping jet blue increase their standards."
Pros: "Bigger seats, big screens and food!"
Cons: "Too long flight and pricey"
Cons: "See anive"
Cons: "Not being able to web check in causes stress pre-flight."
Cons: "This airport is disorganised and undersized for the volume of patrons passing through. Was frustrated with the poor response of Sydney airport go manage an obvious failure of their baggage handling system. No fallback procedure was activated(manual for eg) to actually progress baggsge hangling even for those with connections to make. Disappointed and embarrassed by the defensive attitudes of staff who were given no Support by mgt of either airport or airline."
Pros: "Great flight on the 787 Dreamliner and the crew were fantastic. I wish I could say the same thing for Baggage services. I have a business meeting tomorrow morning and presently they can't even reconcile their own Baggage Receipt number! I expect more when travelling (and paying) for business class."
Pros: "Got a good price for RT ticket."
Cons: "Wasn’t fond of Qantas charging for seat selection for standard economy (international)."
Cons: "Lack of food for dinner..they ran out."
Pros: "Crew member Trevor was funny and the perfect host. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Seats are super uncomfortable and there is no privacy ... worst Business class facilities I’ve ever experienced. Seriously substandard might as well fly economy or better still use a different airline."
Pros: "I liked the grilled chicken and the beef selection"
Cons: "The actual greens in both salads were weak; soft not crisp and cut in large chunks nose that were hard to handle and not flavorful."
Pros: "Although we were seated in economy and legroom would be tight, we had a truly great flight. The staff are all sweet, smiling, considerate and helpful. The snacks kept coming and the meals were delicious! We’re were treated so nicely, I hope to always travel on Qantas to visit my grandkids. My last United flight wasn’t even close to being comparable. In fact, I dreaded the thought of the long flight but Qantas has changed my view and now I have NO reservations when contemplating future visits."
Cons: "My husband is a lacto ova vegetarian. If I checked that, then he wouldn’t have been able to pre-order the delicious vegetarian bechamel lasagne. He would’ve received a meal specifically designed for him. Best way to order next time in order to get the pre-ordered dinner/lunch and then the lacto ova for the breakfast?"
Pros: "The staff on board were very kind."
Cons: "Being delayed 3 1/2 hours...but at least now I know the ' friends' I traveled w/aren't the people I though they were. Their American Airlines flight was on time. They arrived at LAX at 6:30 a.m. By the time I landed at 10, they were already home. Without me."
Pros: "friendly crew, plenty of food, pillow provides extra comfort especially for long flight."
Pros: "Great service on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process with qantas at JFK is chaotic. No one is policed on their seat numbers, status or fare class. this creates a chaotic process for boarding and securing overhead luggage space for higher fare paying customers Very bad lounge at JFK if used to first lounges like Cathay and JAL"
Pros: "The plane itself was nice and comfortable for me. The business class seat fully laid down, and there were lots of entertainment options. The flight was quick! 15hr flight from Melbourne to LAX only took 13 hours!"
Cons: "Several of the food items were either cold or overdone. I asked hostess what the deal was (because their food service is usually great) and she explained that in this new plane (Boeing 787) they removed a lot of the working areas for the crew. They have less space to work in order to be able to prepare food and drinks compared to Qantas's other planes (Airbus A380). This is also a brand new plane for this crew (literally the first flight for some for some of them), and they didn't know where some of the things on the plane were. I imagine after they've used the plane for a while and learn where everything is, they'll get better. I'll find out on the return flight back to Melbourne."
Pros: "Really nothing."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and people were standing in line for ages before they started to let passengers board. Once boarded, flight was delayed over an hour so we just sat there on the plane. We were sitting in the last row where extremely cold air was just blowing directly at us the entire flight! We asked a few members of the crew including the manager and were told that that's what happens when you're close to the door. It was the MOST UNCOMFORTABLE flight of my life!!! I will never fly Qantas again. They were a complete nightmare and definitely the low point of our wonderful vacation."
Pros: "Flight crew were not enthusiastic about their job. Need to do service with a smile & not act like we are burdening when a request for certain service was made."
Cons: "Plenty of movies to watch"
Pros: "The crew is always nice and approachable. The entertainment is usually high but this time around there weren't many good choices."
Cons: "The food is AWFUL, and has been getting worse as the years go on. Absolutely terrible taste, stomach-churning smells and gross consistency. During boarding I was profiled by one of your gate agents and "selected for further screening" ... not fun. No explanations, just surly, inattentive agents performing further checks on items that had already been twice-checked at security. Awful service."
Pros: "The flight attendants we're really fun and the food is great!"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and there wasn't a lot of communication about it."
Pros: "Overall a great plane- we were on the 380 going to lax and then we switched to a really old plane. There was a delay of 3 hours from lax which was very annoying."
Cons: "The delay was horrifying. Staff were friendly enough but they really should have offered more snacks and water"
Pros: "Was able to quickly check in and get through security. The front counter staff were friendly and efficient. Minimal waiting to board."
Cons: "The plane was filthy. My seat was sticky and covered in what appeared to be food of some sort. Flight attendant wiped it off, but it wasn't clean by any means. The seat belts were twisted and had food and crud stuck to them. When I changed my clothes the next day, there was food and stains on my black pants from where I sat on the dirty seats."
Cons: "Great service , very caring and clean . Looked after me as I had to use a wheelchair . Thank you :)"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Crew is great and helpful!"
Cons: "Delay was long. Instructions on re-booking was dodgy. Luggage took for ever to come up and it caused alot of anxiety for many people. Some customers got "Express Passes" due to tight connections and some didn't. General confusion among Quantas' ground staff."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by one hour. Because I had to collect my carry-on bag, I missed my connection by 8 minutes. I was re-booked on another flight and was five hours late getting home"
Pros: "lovely stewards and stewardesses, most needed warm soft blankets"
Cons: "vegan food was awful and poor nutrition, cold, huge plane with light panels so high up in the ceiling that when and if you turned them on to read, it was bothersome and intrusive to others, poor choices of movies, few currents ones, seats, though leather, had been used too many times before me and were not comfortable, had to put my seat up so person behind me could eat aisles so small I could not walk and stretch if carts would being used, aisle handles don't raise so when my companions had to go to the bathroom, I had to ask the person in front of me to raise their seat!!?? Insufficient leg room better trip on my return mostly because of the plane, it was smaller and better seats..it was a 380"
Pros: "Great selection of movies, i liked that the economy cabin at the back of the top floor of the a380 was more personal than a larger economy cabin. Crew were happy to serve me drinks throughout the flight after the halfway point when i started drinking"
Cons: "I would love love love to see airlines recycling the majority of the waste generated during flight..."
Pros: "2.5 hour flight - nothing too difficult they transferred our bags ok - nothing lost paid $C175 for my third bag - because we booked under QF code share. Wont do that again."
Cons: "ok flight"
Cons: "Everything, my flight was delayed as a result of a mechanical problem. This resulted in missing my connecting flight. To make the story extremely short, qantas was not helpful or forthcoming with information regarding a way to get to my final destination. This left my wife and I stranded in a different countries airport for hours."
Pros: "it was nice to get an early phone call about flight delay and given a food credit for the delay, pleasant check-in, smooth flight, take off and landing."
Cons: "the poor boarding control and information. delayed boarding time and no-one from Qantas at gate until 45 minutes past the time scheduled on ticket and no communication of why nor when we would board. new passengers arriving were allowed to start getting in at gate before notifying us who had been waiting there to be told to get in or in what order. seat arm rest (between seat 58b and 58c) was wobbly. Entertainment movies need newer choices specially for people like me who can't sleep on long flights and have seen all this movies. where's the classical music?."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew was good"
Cons: "I've flown a lot over the years and been on some long flights but this was beyond bad as far as comfort. When the people in front of us layed their seats down we could not even move and when meals were served the flight attendants had to ask the passengers in front of us to please put their seats up so that they could serve us food. Then when the service was over the people layed their seats right down...they were literally in our laps."
Cons: "Having to pay for food in American Airlines codeshare flight."
Pros: "The steward went out of his way to accommodate my dietary needs. The vegetarian meals were all given out leaving nothing for me to eat. He spent the time and effort to prepare and bring me a meal from Business Class. 2 free checked bags is also a big plus."
Cons: "Felt like a budget airline. You need to pay extra to be able to preselect your seat. The amount of leg room is atrociously small. The 15 kg. carry on weight limitation is a joke. There were too few bathrooms and one was out of commission to boot."
Cons: "Only one channel of audio was playing--made listening to Tubular Bells just plain WRONG..."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to A/C issues. Part had to be flown up from Sydney. We offloaded to Airport, and waited 4 hours. Missed Qantas connection in LAX, and was put on an American Airlines flight to JFK. No included food, seats that I had paid for not available on cramped conditions."
Pros: "Paying for extra leg room was the best investment. We felt like we were in business class (although haven't ever travelled it). The crew were sensational, obliging, friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "We had to collect our luggage in Los Angeles and then re-lodge it for the New York leg of our flights. It was a nuisance but Qantas staff did everything in their power to make it as smooth as possible."
Pros: "The crew manager worked tirelessly to move rows of passengers to other seats because the entertainment system didn't work for a bank of passengers on the long haul flight."
Cons: "Our entertainment system didn't work and we had to split up to move seats."
Pros: "Great service as always!"
Pros: "Leg room plus space between window and aisle seat"
Pros: "The inflight service was very friendly. Flight was good, smooth."
Cons: "Flight late arriving c. 30 mins. Could not get the entertainment working on a 5+ hour flight."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was good, that was about it."
Cons: "Service was so poor. Being in economy they treated you like you were more of a nuisance to them then a customer. Got one drink served to me, 3 hours in, on a 14 hour flight. Our first meal was 3 hours in, and was served 30 min after the people next to me. Trash and dishes were not picked up and when we asked attendant he asked us to bring them to the cabin ourselves! after sitting with them in front of us for an hour after dinner. Window screens left up during flight omitting sun glare making It hard to sleep. been making the LAX to Brisbane or Sydney flight to 8 years now, Qantas has progressively got worse while Virgin customer service remains as a high standard. Looks like sales on Qantas will no longer entice me, I'll be sticking with virgin"
Cons: "I was disappointed to find that on a coast to coast flight there was no entertainment system at all."
Pros: "Great price Service was great Updated on everything from gate change to flight on timen"
Cons: "Didn't book through Kayak on my previous flights"
Pros: "Qantas entertainment system was excellent, very up to date. broad selection of movies and TV shows, good selection of music as well. The AA flight on a 737-800 was unexpectedly excellent, the seats are very comfortable, spacious, and the entertainment system superb."
Cons: "for the Qantas flight, seats were abysmal for a 15hr flight. These are similar to the intolerable seats and spacing for domestic (US) flights on legacy carriers (although, American is now radically changing seat dimensions and comfort on the 737-800). For a 6hr flight, it is not tolerable. For a 15hr non-stop flight, it is punishing. The Qantas A380-200 is no longer a new plane. The seat hardware is tired, lumpy, stiff, back-breaking. This could be improved by more space per seat, but it is not. I am 6'3" (189cm) and not at all fat (75kg), but the amount of seating space was tight. Again, this is an inconvenience for a short flight, and absolutely punishing on a long, 15hr, flight. It was not a cheap flight, and surely some updated seats can be put in, with fewer rows. By contrast, I flew back to US on Air New Zealand, and was entirely comfortable on a 12hr leg on very modern and spacious seats in the lowest economy class seat, on a 777 plane for a much cheaper fare."
Pros: "The crew were nice and apologetic for my terrible seat."
Cons: "Seat was known to crew to be a pain - I couldn't sleep, I was constantly being bumped into. No option to request intolerance sensitive food."
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "Plane (Boeing 747 - QF15) was dirty (grime like dust up the air vents) on the side above windows and the plane looked old. Felt like we were breathing it in. Been on a lot of international flights and the meals left a lot to be desired. (scrambled eggs looked and tasted like mashed potatoes) Perhaps it's the toll from the nature of the job but the crew looked haggered and miserable. Some male crew members didn't have shirts properly tucked in - staff morale seemed low. Flying Qantas for the first time, it was a huge disappointment."
Pros: "Great service, good food."
Cons: "Food for the main meal was dried out."
Cons: "We did not get our assigned seats. We checked in 2 hours prior and it was "to early" to obtain boarding pass with seat assignment and we were told to wait at gate area and they would give seat assignments. We are very unhappy with the back row where the seats did not recline at all!! Dreading the return flight for that reason. When we checked in at St. Louise we were not able to use kiosk because it did not recognize do he Quantas flight numbers and personnel checked us in. We were pleased our checked baggage was sent thru to Melbourne, but surprised that we could not get seat assigned at that point."
Pros: "The flight was good, plenty of food and great service. It was turbulent towards the end but not much they can do about that. Flight was delayed 40 mins and it also took ages to get off the plane. Knowing LAX is a hub for US and plenty of us had connecting flights there was no sense of urgency to get us off the plane."
Pros: "The pilot and flying was good - nice flight."
Cons: "Most of the crew were fabulous; however, seated in bulkhead, we had NO service for the first two HOURS of this flight. I had to go back myself to get a beverage. Seats are punishingly small in width, so even with bulkhead seats, it was difficult to get comfortable for this 14 hour flight. Note: I am a normal weight person. Those who had an extra 15 pounds or more felt squished. Food was mostly yucky. A few things were somewhat edible. 10 year old boy seated behind me kept kicking the seat - found out later that it was also jarring due to having GAMES on the headrest. Idiocy personified. His constant poking of the screen BEHIND MY HEAD made for an ugly flight until I asked his mother to swap seats with him. Very frustrating. Kids should be in a sequestered area....together."
Pros: "Helpful staff at terminal changed our tickets so we could sit together which was just lovely. Departed and arrived on time. Entertainment was good."
Cons: "No sleep masks provided. We missed out on certain foods, they just never came through and offered them. Food was horrible. Very little leg room."
Pros: "Flight attendants were so lovely, flight on time"
Pros: "Once we were on board, the crew was nice, offering the traditional amenities that are offered in flights as long as this one."
Cons: "There was a nine hour delay. Qantas found out about an issue with the plane after we were boarded. Initially, they told us to wait in the plane while they ran some tests. After those fifteen minutes, we were asked to get off the plane because the process would take longer. Four hours went by before we were told that they would need to repair something in the plane and that out flight would leave at 755pm (instead of the original 1050am departure). I later learned from another passanger that they needed to fly a piece from Sydney to repair the plane (I am not sure how he found out, because I approached the desk several times and all I was told was that they were waiting for the engineers to give an update). While waiting, Qantas wasn't able to rebook my connecting flight. For some reason, 9 hours wasn't enough, and when we boarded the plane, we were told that there was a systems issue so they had transferred the responsibility to the LA team. So here I was boarding into a 14 hour flight, after spending 12 hours in the airplane (I arrived to the Melbourne airport at 8am), not knowing if I was going to have to spend the night in LA or if I would be able to arrive to my destination on Saturday (as I had planned all the way back in February)."
