Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Pros: "Amazing trip Qatar airline is great"
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"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "crew was very sweet"
Cons: "food and wine options were terrible"
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: "They are the best and air Canada should learn from them"
Cons: "Internet connection from Doha wasn't there,"
Cons: "Boarding process, and in-flight entertainment and wifi"
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: "Staff on the plane is fantastic."
Cons: "No option to pick a seat in economy class."
Cons: "i did not like the baggage policy for cabin baggage, where i am not allowed to carry my personal item and a carry on separately."
Pros: "I got free internet on this flight: sponsored by Ooredoo. You can get 8MB for free! Breakfast was good quantity"
Cons: "Entertainment Oryx One, lunch quantity aswell. FPML had one tray, VJML and AVML had the same packed wrap."
Cons: "There was a person name Manzoor at Lahore airport working with Qatar Airways ticketing he was asking me to pay him $50 to help me get boarding pass. i will also contact Qatar Airways about this incident if this issue is not going to forward to the airline please let me know."
Pros: "I appreciated the friendly and always service minded staff. The plane was clean and I enjoyed good leg room. I was happy with the menus and the film selection was entertaining and current. All over a great experience and I would not hesitate to choose Qatar again."
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: "The gentleman next to me had broad shoulders, so I spent most of the flight with my body a bit twisted, and eating without being able to move my right arm normally was undesirable. The cabin was kept a bit warm throughout the flight. We had a long wait (30 - 45 minutes after leaving the gate) before takeoff."
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."
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "- the baggage drop off counter guy was rude, so was his supervisor, they forced us to check our carry-on luggage and made it as they're doing us a favor for not checking our backpacks - there was a problem with the flight and got delayed 90 min, we missed our connecting flight and had to stay in DOH airport overnight - the food was really bad compared to other flights by QA, my wife got food poisoning from their food"
Pros: "everything went smoothly, no delays, boarding was easy and quick"
Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "The entertainment console is dismal"
Cons: "Comfort of seat size has shrunk!!! Good grief."
Cons: "this time food was not that good which when traveled before."
Pros: "excellent service always a pleasure to fly with QATAR Airways"
Pros: "Worst customer service"
Pros: "Liked everything."
Cons: "Nothing was wrong but excess bagage fee is high"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."
Pros: "free flowing wine and beer --- unlike previous flight on QA when the actual supervisor of the staff did not allow a proper stipend of the red wine --- also I witnessed her incivility to another passenger which was appalling -- the crew on this flight deserve to be commended"
Cons: "nothing on the actual flight --- but i felt we had been promised overnight hotel stay since the layover was 8 hours and 55 minutes --- if was not granted in spited of 2 eMails and promise at the time of booking"
Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"
Cons: "Crew members were not concerned. Service was not proper and on time."
Pros: "The was very hospitalty"
Cons: "Every thing was amazing"
Pros: "Not crowded plane. Some fantastic flight attendants. Very helpful and dedicated to make customers happy and help us enjoy the flight"
Cons: "Not very comfortable seating. A couple of not so friendly flight attendants. Crew on the ground in Doha not very attentive or cooperative"
Pros: "For the first time, my vegetarian food was pretty good and I didn't have an upset stomach as soon as I landed in India. It was a miracle for me. Thanks, Qatar airways."
Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable as usual, I am in my 60s. But most of my economy seats are somewhat the same, so no difference."
Pros: "Everyone on duty!!"
Pros: "view above"
Cons: "A gent was VERY tall. I couldn't put my seat back at all. The kicking was so bad I changed my seat."
Pros: "They don't charge you for any seat in economy class"
Cons: "The boarding process feels very hostile, they are not nice and you are threaded as a terrorist (while they smile at you during the process). Since a new policy of TSA according to them, you cannot take your computer with you in the plane. This means that working in your way back is very hard and you will be loosing the day which is very uneficient. But what was even worse, is that they didn't allow me to check my bag in the last connection gettting to the US, instead they made me check it from my original destination which made me loose almost two days of work without giving me a logic response on why I couldn't check my bag from my inbound flight to the US. By the way, this protocol from TSA is terrible. No internet in their flights No chargers plugs in all of their flights (including the ones that take you more than 4 hours) Lunch in their 15 hours flight is mediocre, everyone was starving since they only gave us one mini empanada."
Pros: "Intertainment was very good"
Cons: "The hostess were not in profisional, they were very rush while giving the food the toilet was not clean"
Cons: "Other passengers pushing, coughing & sneezing without proper sanitary measures; dirty toilets. This reflects on the education level of passengers, not the crew, but it still makes flying into Jeddah on packed flights particularly miserable."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was friendly and attentive to passengers (I give them 4.5 stars). The seats are comfortable. The plane was clean."
Cons: "My 18 year old daughter (turned 18 on December 20, 2016) was singled out, searched extensively bodily and her bag, for no reason what-so-ever. It was a traumatizing experience for her... needless to say, nothing was found and no explanation was given. The seats recline too far back so that the person behind cannot enjoy what they are watching. The crew has to keep asking the passengers in front to pull their chairs up slightly."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "No food selection, USB ports didn't work, passenger who didn't want to sit in her assigned center seat created a fuss and I ended up voluntarily moving to another seat. Center seats are really tight, elbows are in the way of all passengers and if you are average height you have to turn your legs at angle to sit which infringes on other passengers' spaces. very uncomfortable. Aisle next to me is so small."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and everything else was very good and comfortable on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. We got to the gate too early (by maybe 10 mins before boarding time) so we were told to sit outside of the designated seating area and that they would make an announcement when we should go back up there. There was never an announcement, but we felt it was getting late so we went to check at the desk and they then said we were late and they were waiting on us. They were very nice about everything, but just thought that was really strange."
Cons: "Entertainment. Not all films have subtitle"
Cons: "1- Flight from Delhi to Doha was very late, which made it chaotic for us to catch our connection at Doha 2- Entertainment choices were very limited"
Cons: "Cabin temperature in my section was slight hot and was uncomfortable until we complained to the supervisor. Steward spilt food on the floor next to our seat"
Pros: "Slept most of the way"
Pros: "Qatar Airways was very cooperative and kind enough to switch my flight 4 hours earlier with alternative flight free when I asked them to change it if that possible. They did so with kind and smile within 10 minutes while it was very difficult due to boarding time and luggage switching Boarding was okay Crew also was kind, responsive, Food was great Entertsinment was the issue due to airplane size and airplane facilities like Internet and entertainment tv screen was not in your seat Thank you so much Qatar Airways"
Pros: "I forgot to specifically request a vegetarian meal, but was very happy to find out that Qatar had a vegetarian option for every meal/snack of the flight. I traveled from Miami to Doha."
Cons: "Not much to complain about, this airlines is consistently ranked above others in surveys. From my first time flying aboard Qatar, I was not unsatisfied."
Pros: "Again, the flight attendants were so sweet and nice and hospitable."
Cons: "The sitting quarters were so cramped. Maybe next time I'll save an additional $500 to go up a class but it was so smashed. It did not leave room for me to use the desk to eat or use my laptop."
Pros: "Emirates Airlines will remain the best of the best"
Cons: "Emirates Airlines will remain the best of the best"
Cons: "They ran out of non-vegetarian meals, which is not acceptable. The seats were rather narrow"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than an hour. No courtesy to inform passengers. The boarding took place and all passengers were crammed into the departure lounge with no place to sit for more than an hour!"
Pros: "Great food & great entertainment. Love the free WiFi"
Cons: "I carried the same exact baggage from my SFO-DXB flight into DXB-MAA flight but was still charged excess baggage. Even after being asked to checkin my luggage I found that I could carry it in and there was more than enough space to accomodate everyone."
Pros: "A perfectly ordinary Emirates flight: good food and entertainment."
Cons: "The Kabul route often has less experienced travelers. So passengers couldn't figure out their seat belts, couldn't lock the toilets, stood up while the plane was still on the runway, pushed and shoved to try to get off the plane first, etc."
Pros: "Cabin crew services"
Cons: "Food could have better"
Cons: "Emirates sent a notice that the flight was cancelled on a flight from SF to the Maldives - with about 6 hours notice. They put me on a plane two days later. Zero interest by the airline helping. We found a flight on Turkish but paid an extra $500. Zero interest in helping. Last time sensitive ever on Emirates."
Pros: "Great comfort and entertainment some of the best I have ever had on a plane. Will definitely fly Emirates again."
Cons: "Not huge fan of boarding off a bus instead of the traditional way from the airport terminal. Food selection could be better but overall not bad."
Cons: "Noise at the back of business Entertainment system did not work properly"
Pros: "Tv and kids movies , crew were nice"
Cons: "There were not enough chair to sit to wait at the gate B3. Most of us sit on the floor"
Cons: "Because the airline kept changing the gate numbers an this was my first time to fly alone. Plus I had to take a bus to a plane on the tarmac. I missed my flight. Tried to charge 600 for the same flight the next day. The people were rude an impolite at Dubai. It’s very expensive airport. Do Not Fly with United emerites at all. Terrible just terrible"
Pros: "The ground crew at the Bombay airport was excellent. Specifically, Saurabh, Sharmilee etc. WE really appreciate their wholehearted support for an issue that came up at the airport. Keep up the good work of ground /check in group at Emirates in Bombay."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Old plane with old seats."
Pros: "Wonderful airline, great movie collection, ended up leaving one of my bags behind in Dubai but they were delivered to my home in one pice"
Cons: "The time between flights was so little and with a big airport, literally had to run from one end to the other"

Cons: "Crew seemed as tired as I did. The food could have been better for the price."
Pros: "Service and Wi-Fi"
Cons: "Brussel sprouts were total mush"
Pros: "Got upgraded to Business!"
Cons: "Nothing really, crew was professional"
Cons: "Cabin crew were reluctant offering passengers liquids on board we had to go and find them to ask for either water or juice as it was a long Flight which took 15 Hours on Air"
Pros: "Consistent service"
Cons: "Toilets not very clean towards the end of the flight"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Why are Emirates business Class seats on 777 so weirdly configured - you have to be a stick insect to squeeze out of bulkhead row 8 window seats because of hideous mock walnut trunk slung between the seats to house aisle TV screen."
Pros: "Most of the crew was nice and accommodating"
Cons: "There was a hair in my food. Seats 46a and 46b were very constricting, leaving it very uncomfortable for sitting."
Cons: "Overall handling of delay and missed connection flight was disappointing. The meal voucher that was given was of no use. Absolutely disappointed with the overall handling of the situation that day."
Cons: "Boarding of gate A20 location in Dubai"
Pros: "Food, comfort, service -- all excellent for the 10hr flight from Athens to NYC! Hands down better than any other airline I've flown with for same number of hours and distance."
Cons: "While there was much in the way of options for entertainment, navigating the system & touch screen was a pain. Often the mouse doesn't follow your touch and you end up clicking things you didn't mean to click + having to press multiple times."
Pros: "They were on time and excellent service all the way. It couldn't have been better."
Pros: "Good Food, I find it amazing that the Jeddah flights have better quality food than many other sectors.."
Cons: "No more A380 in this sector, which is a shame."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The seats were terrible and not enough cushioning"
Pros: "Staff was courteous."
Cons: "We were not made aware to go get snacks from the serving areas ourselves. We waited to be served. Finally figured it out. The seat near the exits were close to the pantry so could not sleep due to noises of the trays and serving atea. Those seats should cost cheaper ."
Pros: "Delay in first flight which caused me a day. But accommodation provided at Dubai is fantastic. Entertainment system not worked in flight and WiFi Audi not worked."
Pros: "Very good services by Emirates, flight was on time, leg room between seats was sufficient, meals were good and staff behavior was good"
Pros: "On time Excellent environment"
Pros: "Better plane with much better entertainment system. Decent food. Once I had missed my connecting flight because of the flight delay, they promptly arranged for a hotel to stay at, as there wasnt another flight to NYC for 12 hrs. Otherwise I would have been really pissed."
Cons: "First time I have had mediocre crew on an emirates flight. The guy serving my section was not particularly friendly, had a bit of an attitude problem and spent a little too much time chatting up an attractive female passenger. Again, disorganized boarding process. First time I have experienced such terrible service on emirates."
Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Internet was bad and slow despite i paid its price.. luggage take so long.. the bar on the 2nd floor can better be accessed with a paid fees and not enclosed for a certain seat level."
Pros: "The food and care was great."
Pros: "Very good airline with professional stafff and much better comfort than most other airlines"
Cons: "The food was pretty bad. I didn't even eat on the return flight."
Pros: "Emirates business class is excellent."
Cons: "Cannot think of anything to complain about."
Pros: "I like Big TV"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "Was sitting in 41D. By the team they came to my seat, they ran out of the standard vegetarian meal. I was told I 'had to pre-order' the veg meal, although it had never happened in the 10+ long haul 14-hr flights I've taken with Emirates in the past. I was under the impression you only had to pre-order special meals like religious (Jain, Hindu) meals and not the std veg meal. Emirates should advise so while booking a ticket. Secondly the flight attendant who was telling me this was INCREDIBLY rude. This was extremely uncharacteristic from Emirates crew as I had always come across very pleasant flight attendants. This particular attendant constantly, and very indifferently, asked me if I wanted chicken or lamb, despite me repeatedly saying I am a vegetarian. This continued for a couple of minutes, and then she got flustered, rudely asked again if I want to eat or not. I said I am not going to eat a non-veg meal, and then she dragged the tray away. Without offering me any kind of veg alternative (Emirates carries pizzas as well in this long haul flights). I ended up not eating anything for that meal. Extremely unpleasant experience which was not expected from Emirates."
Pros: "seats reclined nice, movie selection great"
Cons: "i didn't care for the manner in which you are charged for baggage fees"
Pros: "Wifi availability. Comfort."
Pros: "SERVICE!!!! EXCELLENT!!"
Pros: "Ample legroom, accommodating flight attendants, ample overhead space, great entertainment on board. WIFI available, plane beautifully designed. Wash rooms clean. Generous free baggage allowance. Food pretty good. Overall, a very pleasant experience."
Cons: "WiFi free, but a bit weak."
Pros: "Crew very attentive and helpful"
Cons: "Boarding chaotic and unorganized. Cabin temperature = sauna for first 90 minutes. Everyone stressed. Babies crying. No water. No service. But all seat back screens lit and hot. Awful."
Cons: "I missing my flight than they dosnt give me another flight. They told me we can't do nothing you must buy new one it was 990$ usually if I miss my flight I have just to buy a little more for next trip"
Pros: "Emirates is definitely comfier and more attentive than any American airline I've used."
Cons: "Not sure what happened on landing... We were told they couldn't connect the walkway so we would come down the stairs, but neglected to mention the ridiculously long (20-30 minutes) bus ride back to the actual terminal. There were no staff on the bus. I was pregnant and not offered a seat and came very close to passing out from the situation. I love emirates but the Dubai airport makes me reconsider flying with them again."
Pros: "Service and crew were lovely and gracious. Food was good. Some items were delicious, like the vegetarian entrees. Bread, pizza was not so good. Entertainment system is amazing."
Cons: "First set of headphones I unwrapped were dirty. Luckily was able to obtain another set."

Pros: "Seating was good. Crew was good"
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "Good entertainment options"

Pros: "The transfer after the flight was very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment was absent."
Pros: "It was fine - overall pleasant/nothing."
Cons: "It was fine - overall pleasant/nothing wrong, but not outstanding, either. It helps to have no one in the middle seat, but it would have been nicer to have slightly more comfortable seating, and a bit more privacy."
Pros: "Again boarding was smooth"
Cons: "The seats were terrible"
Cons: "Lost baggage"
Pros: "Food was tasty. Crew was very good."
Cons: "Legroom was horrible, and I’m 5’-7”! Ancient entertainment units."
Pros: "Paid in advance 45.00 a seat to reserve! Otherwise they assign at Check-in! Still ended up with a standard not premium seats in center. I chose 2 side seats online but plane must have changed. Literally could not move. My travel partner ended up spilling wine on himself primarily due to this and 1/2 size drop down trays. Call button brought no help , had to get up and go retrieve steward in back myself!"
Cons: "Comfortability , mediocre service."
Cons: "Nasty passport control person at gate check in"
Pros: "Service was great and the flight very smooth. Great flight!"
Pros: "crew great smooth flight"
Cons: "no problem and happy crew."
Pros: "Throughout the long flight, the cabin crew was excellent. They were attentive and friendly. They avoided interrupting quiet time and rest time by keeping off the PA system (well done). The food was fantastic. We were lucky enough to get some business class tickets with points, and the food was amazing. Wine was excellent. This team was quite solicitous of my parent with reduced-mobility. And the bathrooms stayed clean throughout the flight. find this is often an areas where many airlines fall down. And it's too bad, because while I'm 100% sure it is no fun to clean a toilet while in flight, it is a really a big negative for the customers. Overall excellent attention to detail, with a cheerful and "can-do" crew that kept the plane "proper" throughout the flight and provided seamless service. Good stuff. Will fly again."
Cons: "Entertainment screen didn't work properly to rewind & fast forward. boarding time was printed as 1 hour prior to takeoff but occurred 20 min. prior. pleasant crew and decent food."
Pros: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Cons: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Cons: "Ok, old plane."
Pros: "Just like everything else the Swiss do, our Swiss air flight was like a well oiled machine. Very friendly crew, very good meals, lots of creatures comforts; blankets, pillows, headphones, warm washcloths in the morning. Great overall experience."
Cons: "The seat room is every bit as tight as any other airline, so if you're tall, and flying an overnight, upgrading to a seat with leg room might be worth the extra cost. Select your roomy seat early - they go fast!"
Pros: "Plane was comfortable (for a plane) and the staff were polite and efficient. The flight made up lots of time and the in flight snacks were very welcome."
Cons: "The flight was very delayed, and the communications from Swiss was lacking. In fact their app thought the flight had taken off and landed on time?!"

Pros: "good food, excellent entertainment selection"

Pros: "Good service, efficient, professional"

Pros: "Seats are roomy"
Cons: "Selection of movies rather poor"
Pros: "Aircraft was clean and spacious with ample leg room."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Timing of delivery could have been better balanced."
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: "Crew great"
Cons: "Seats cramped"
Cons: "I had a tight connection in Zurich and a very lengthy trek to get to connecting flight. I wish Swiss Air had told me ahead of time that the flight would hold until I (and at least two other people) got there, instead of of having us run like crazy in an effort to make the flight. Connection time was way too tight."
Pros: "mtl to Zuric was t"
Pros: "Swiss planes were clean and everything worked. Flight attendants very friendly. Food was superb. Plus, the connection in Zurich, as always, was seamless and painless. Will definitely give Swiss my preference when looking at trans Atlantic flights."
Pros: "Seats very confortabile"
Cons: "Same situation with the food. I was given Molley's special food. Then I was given a cold croissant. That was it. Lufthansa gives little sandwiches."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Few seats in boarding area"
Cons: "my flight was canceled in the last minute,it transferred true turkey where i didn't want to go to for security reasons and landing time issues, i had a chance to buy that ticket for cheaper and get there on time to the turkey airway flight and not come 10 hours early and land at a time i'm expecting I expect compensation for both the price ticket difference as well as for my time wasted, or I will not consider using your airline in the future."
Pros: "Everything is OK."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything is good."
Cons: "not enough leg room"
Cons: "Airbus seats are uncomfortable and with very close pitch. The ground crew was mixed. The woman who helped me with re-seating was very nice . The woman who managed the boarding objected to a standard size carry-on, saying it was large and heavy (even though they didn't weigh it), and United at IAD measured it at under 8 kg) so they took it from me and sent it as luggage. (Fortunately, no extra charge.)"
Pros: "No sops followed"
Cons: "Food is really bad and they never even bother checking with any one same burger which is cold dry"
Cons: "Canceled flight without warning. Terrible crew coordination to help with the issue. Not flying Turkish again."
Pros: "it is a nice program it's wonderful for flying out good price on for totally is excellent website"
Pros: "Crew was very good and the food excellent."
Cons: "Seat space is a little small."
Cons: "The are not nice at all"
Pros: "شكرا لكم"
Cons: "On time"
Cons: "seat cannot recline"
Pros: "Food service and choice of meals was good. Nice movie and Show selection."
Cons: "The aircraft was dirty the bathroom was not up kept. The boarding process was horrible considering I’ve flown with Turkish Airlines before. The seat was extremely uncomfortable and the passengers were kicking the chair behind me and in front of me the entire time:/ The plane got really cold towards the end of the flight! The crew seemed irritated and we’re talking in the back quite a bit when we needed assistance. I was disappointed with this flight to be honest !"
Pros: "Liked that they moved me to a better seat - was sitting next to a cranky old Turkish man - who complained every time we brushed his legs getting into our seats- he refused to stand to let us into our seats- I said this is not gonna work and they found me a great seat with some normal passengers."
Cons: "Food was just ok, plus it’s a longer trip - I understand they kill the lights to let people sleep but offering more drinks - soda and water would b nice - rather than having to go to back and beg- they know who is awake and watching movies - b nice to ask."
Cons: "I sent my old grandparents trusted them to take care of them but they were treated very badly and had a horrible trip"
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "I wasn’t able to get a simple luggage name tag after asking several staff employees. That’s crazy."
Cons: "I picked a window seat very early on through a phone call to a Turkish Airline agent in the USA, but when I checked in online, the seat assigned to me was gone and I was put in a middle seat while there were many other seats available. This erasure of the record and random seat assignment nullify the effort on the part of the passenger (making a call is not a trivial act these days because of the long waits) and generate uncertainty in the minds of the travellers. Hope you can improve on this point. That will make an even better impression on the passengers."
Cons: "1. Flight late from Berlin to Istanbul. 2. That's mean missing my next flight from Istanbul to Riyadh. 3. I add extra baggage in TKL Airport : my original bag is 23 kg I have until 32kg, The extra baggage was 20kg, So I pay 247 Euro each extra kg 19 Euro. 4. In Istanbul airport they said your next flight tomorrow at 20pm. 5. I have important meeting in morning and my jop in the evening. 6. They changed my teket from turkish airline to Saudi airline 4.00pm, That's mean no different. 7. I ask about my baggage in turkish airline deck they said don't worry every thing will be okay. 8. I ask for hotel they said you have to make visa cost 60 dollars and you know I have to pay taxi and Chang money... Pla Pla, Actually this is not respecting and very bad organization. 9. I didn't make visa and stay from that time until 3.pm in primum lungs. 10. I went to Saudi airline deck to take my boarding. 11. They said you have extra baggage, I explain them that I payed already to turkish airline. 12. They said you have to go back to turkish airline deck about this extra kg's. 13. I did going back to them they said we cannot do anything, leave one bag here and we send the other one later. Actually this stupid airline and this stupid employee's dealing with me like a stupid, all my time I walk every where in that stupid airport, they just gives me orders and I have to follow like it was my mistake. 14. I showed my alfursan membership to Saudi airline deck and they helped me. 15. When I arrived to Riyadh my baggage wasn't there, this is mean that this stupid turkish people that the have to work on barbcue and haircut, but airports jop needs professional people. That's was my first and last flight with them."

Manchester plane was delayed one hour, no problem, but I arrived in Istanbul at the right time and the gate was open I gave them my ticket.

Pros: "Their water was fine."
Cons: "They purposefully do not update their delays, which are frequent and widespread. They do this so their percentage on time looks better. Both my flights were over an hour delayed but Turkish Airline refused to update the status of the flight. They both came up as “on time”. My driver at my destination therefore waited an additional hour for me and I was charged 90 additional euros. The flight said it was on time online and at the gate it also read “on time.”"

Cons: "Lufthansa sharing code with United wasn't pleasant at all."
Pros: "It was my daughter's 16th birthday and one of the spunky crew members helped us to create a little celebration. That was very memorable! Otherwise the flight was late (which was OK, the captain kindly kept us informed), but the plane was clean and quiet. The bathrooms on the lower level provided a space to stretch, but as always, they get pretty dirty on a long-haul flight. Price was quite good. I always feel the flights originating from Europe are nicer than those originating in the US."
Cons: "The food was stuck in the past, roll, white cheese, white cake with sugary fruit, somewhat wilted small salad and a pretty greasy chicken dish with polenta and by that point, stewed veggies. I am not accustomed to eating like that and was disappointed (though hungry!). Not a whole lot of room in my seat, I'm 5'6" and slim, but at least the seats recline and glide forward a bit and the head rest bends to catch your head IF you can nod off. I appreciate the civility that still exists under stressful circumstances."
Pros: "The flight was really on time and the flight crew was just amazing. The overall experience was exceptional. Will recommend this servic to any one who will like to travel"
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."

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: "Had one passenger in a wheelchair and we had great help!"
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: "Lost my tablet and it was returned to me! Great staff."
Cons: "The seat design at exit rows. The pouch is too far away. Made me leave my tablet behind bc it was too far. Nothing of significance to complain about. It was overall, a great flight and safety was put ahead of everything. Well done."
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."
Cons: "They didn't have time to give half the people drinks and we weren't even given water."
