Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Tvs don’t work. Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew was great. They made up for mistakes in a positive and amenable way."
Cons: "Flight was late. There was no communication about it. The flight from Joburg to Doha was late, therefore I missed my connection. The delay was not officially communicated to any of the passengers — no announcements made, no representatives to talk to at the gate — until well past the time that we should have been in the air. It was distressing."
Pros: "The “mini-refrigerator” for beverage storage at the business class seat."
Cons: "The portion of the Arabic language expression on the live flight mapping software should have been minimized."

Pros: "Food was good, and the crew were very patient and polite - went out of their way to make us comfortable."
Cons: "The aircraft seemed to be really old. The entertainment system on the seat I was allotted did not work, and I had to change seats. In the new seat, the entertainment system worked, but the seat didn't recline, and I had to change seats again - from an initially allotted aisle seat, to a middle seat. Also, the food service time was weird - we got a full lunch about an hour before we landed, which didn't make sense, and had to wait almost 5 - 6 hours between brunch and our next meal - a movie snack. Most passengers were famished by the time the lunch was served. Also, why was there no wifi?"
Pros: "The service was perfect the aircraft was clean and tidy. The pyjamas were a great added bonus and comfortable."

Pros: "Museum of Islamic Art,"
Pros: "exellent in everything"
Pros: "Everything was perfect !!"

Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "Nothing was spectacular."
Cons: "No lounge in Philadelphia took my Priority Pass. On the flight, the woman in front of me threw her chair back without asking and almost had hot coffee all over me. When I asked her to put her chair up, she got mad. She went to staff to insist she could put her chair back. I showed them that I was indeed in a back brace for a health condition and that I needed opportunities to move and shift, cross legs to release tension, etc. Staff sided with the rude woman, who, given the chance to move to an equal seat on the opposite aisle where she could recline, refused to move. I was very frustrated and have never been treated with such discrimination regarding my health concerns."

Pros: "The food was great with three options for each meal and there were a lot of options for in flight entertainment"

The seat reclined to a comfortable position. The seat back provided a built in head rest. The TV's in the seats were the largest I have ever seen on a flight in economy. The staff were helpful and great. The food and drinks provided were decent!"

Pros: "Good quality planes with lots of leg room! Also, pretty and young crew...unlike most domestic airlines."
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "great crew and food."
Cons: "being charged excess baggage when one suitcase weigh under weight. Having to wait at the terminal for a hour and a half because of bad weather -- not the pilot's fault"

I have spend lots of money and written 3 LONG mails to Qatar Customer Service - some have been teplied with a ”we will get back to You” note - but nobody has gotten back to me so far. Not 5 Stars. Actually One star is too good a Grade for this complete service failure from A-Z."
Pros: "It was actually on time."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to find us vegetarian meals as our booking was incorrect. They had some good movies to watch that made the trip faster"

Pros: "My trip from Beijing to Doha was fine."
Cons: "I didn't like my trip from Dar to Doha nor from Doha to Dar. The plane is too small. The food wasn't good and they ran out of Mango juice both ways. I sat next to someone who had the smelliest feet on earth. Just wasn't pleasant."

Cons: "- Tiny, cramped seats and aisles. I'd heard the Quatar has more leg room than other airlines. This is definitely not true. If the person in front of me reclined all the way, they crushed my knees and I'm only 5'7". - Seat cushions are thin and hard. - baggage check in took a very long time; about 45-60"

Cons: "The gate staff was not forthcoming with information and both of my flights were delayed by an hour and no one shared info with passengers."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights. Air Canada had to put me on completely new flights there and back. I think this has taught me to go directly through an airline. Justfly was not helpful. Neither was Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Great food and beverages, excellent attentive service by flight crew. Also liked the complimentary comfort pack and headphones. Will definitely use Turkish airlines again."

Pros: "Flight attendants are super friendly and helpful. The food was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding was very annoying because when you go through security they make you feel like a total criminal for no reason. Checking our laptops as if we have something to hide.

Pros: "Walking past the Turkish Airlines desk in Dulles and knowing I would NEVER have to interact with these monsters again."
Cons: "I am an experienced traveler. I've been to 17 countries and have flown over a million miles in both business and coach. My wife encountered a problem in Istanbul that involved an airport transit visa through Canada. I am certain that any other airline we’ve ever flown would’ve assisted us, since it was easily resolved. To Turkish Airlines, this is simply a part of their business model and a chance to make more money. It took about 8 hours of our time at 5 different airport locations to eventually buy new tickets to get back the next day. Our original tickets say: “REISSUE With 200.00 USD penalty. What I didn’t see was the fine print at the bottom: “Turkish Airlines reserves the right to change rules regarding ticket changes and refunds.”. They mean it. As bad as our personal experience was, the real reason we are so appalled is that we were there long enough to see this is the norm for them. In our single day there, we saw at least 100 other travelers going through similar things. The ONLY solution ever offered is to purchase another ticket. We witnessed several people weeping. Many losing control and shouting. Their own personnel were screaming at customers (in a separate office area though, it was all yucks and laughing). These were people of all nationalities. Africans, Asians, Europeans. We were lucky because we had the means to purchase new tickets. Others clearly didn’t. I really don’t know what happened to some of them. One moment was very symbolic of the entire experience. Another vanquished traveler was paying $843 for a new ticket with cash. He handed her $845 but she, of course, had no change. Instead of the $5, he gave her two $1 bills. I had one in my pocket so gave it to her as well. She held my $1 bill up and pointed to the corner which had a very small piece torn off…no ink was missing…and sneered “I can’t accept this. She did this simply because she could. We were powerless. She knew it and reveled in it."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding process -- did not matter what Group you were in. Also instructions at gate were not said clearly in English nor were they repeated."

Pros: "I enjoyed the flight to Istanbul but on the return flight they told me at the exit door of the plane that my stroller for the kids will be in baggage claim. The stroller was. It in baggage claim, the Turkish airline representative could not help or prove de a phone number for me to contact somebody indicating although she has the Turkish airlines uniform she works for swissport. 90 minutes later they said they might send the stroller to my house if found and that I may have to cover the cost as Turkish airlines will not....... terrible service terrible experience and I will never fly with Turkish airlines again"

Pros: "Staff on plane were friendly and respectful"
Cons: "Landing was rough , boarding gate is isolated from amenities"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The entertainment package was good."
Cons: "The food was terrible. Very dry. Warm at best. The temperature of the cabin was too warm. Passengers were fanning themselves to try to cool down. Water should have been offered more frequently. The crew was noisy as they passed through the aisles, making it difficult to sleep."
Pros: "The crew on the flight was trying to do his best - but too late and too little."
Cons: "The flight was delayed in 22.5 hours. No information or instructions where to go or what to do was given. When little info was obtained by shouting of chinese-speaking passengers, it was in mostly in chinese - not English. For 22 hours we actually did not know what to expect. When we finally were told that there is a flight - huge lines to check in. No help with connecting flights was offered. when I asked to reserve a connecting flight - I was put on a connecting flight that I missed anyway because of further on-going delay. When I reached Istanbul - no help was actively offered. I had to arrange my connecting flight. No compensation was offered. When we asked for some food and water, we were sent to the lowest level lounge in Ataturk airport. Very poor Turkish Airlines experience!"
Pros: "My husband and I had a very average experience overall. From boarding to inflight customer service."
Cons: "We did not plan to check in any luggage since we had few connections, so we decide to take our rimowa luggage with us. So we were forced to check them in because it was only 8kg allow per passenger on carry on. So our luggage end up full of big dents, and scratches. We reported to the airlines and it was hard to justify what we were complaining about it. As a consumer were are very unsatisfied and unhappy. One of the worst experience in hospitality I have ever experience."

Cons: "Entertainment system stopped working with about 2.5 hours left in flight."
Pros: "Turkish delights on-board"
Cons: "Chaos at the Istanbul terminal. Connecting flight was literally a mile away. We had to run through the entire terminal only to miss our connection. No help/information from the airline. They made us walk even more to get us transferred to hotel for a night. Their crew repeatedly lied about how to get new boarding passes as they were busy and didn't want to do it for us. Sent us to another transfer desk. No veg. food option even after making a special request. They said sometimes those mistakes happen. You can't call the crew from your sit to get snacks. They make you get out of your middle sit and walk to the back of the plane to get a sandwich. The boarding process at the Istanbul airport is even more chaotic. They have their own security (after having done security at the o origin in Rome AND at the IST airport), which requires standing in an hour long line and getting profiled and judged by the airline staff."

Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable, cabin was cold and no blankets available, food was just ok, plane had lots of empty seats yet everyone was squeezed into 3 in a row making it uncomfortable, no updates from captain or crew as to where we were in the flight....."
Cons: "The baggage drop attendant was very unhelpful when I asked if she could help me sort out an issue (when I checked in online for the second leg of my trip, i paid for my bag then but they wanted me to pay again for my first flight) and just dismissed me and said she couldn't help, making me pay again for my bag. First time I've ever had an unpleasant experience with Delta."
Pros: "On time, great service, a lot of legroom."
Pros: "Left on time all went well in Atlanta"
Cons: "Impossible to figure out what to do in Toronto at Canadian Customs. You move from secure to unsecure then back to secure. It’s a mess and nobody tells you what to do or where to go. Picture process took 4 times. Nobody tells you that you have to transfer your own bags from Delta to West Jet. I even asked in a Toronto and they said no and nobody in Atlanta told me to collect my bags. So bags never made it until the next AM. The West Jet rep was very good and located the bags and they were delivered as promised. You should provide 3 page detailed instructions on how to handle Toronto. I am a seasoned traveler by the way. I’ve never seen anything worse. I could go on and on."

Cons: "No TV screen"
Pros: "It all went very well. Arrived 20 minutes ahead of time. Wifi movies were great. Stewardesses were very efficient."
Cons: "I always hate to hear erroneous announcements. I don't need to know why I need to keep my seatbelt on; just to do it and MAYBE how long I'll need to do it. You don't need to alert me when you're turning the seat belt sign off. There's a "ding" and the light goes off. You could wake me up, or my wife or my sleeping child. It's like they like to hear themselves talk."
Pros: "Overall the actual flight was good..landing was kind of hard but I'm alive so not stressing that"

Cons: "Poor service Poor air craft space The is my worst cattle transport Shame on Delta"

I know the flight wasn't very full, but that cost me an opportunity to eat dinner. I had to cancel a fast food order because I thought I'd miss my flight!"
Pros: "That a delta plane actually had seat back video screens- First delta flight ever that I've been on that did. But every ones screen froze up just over an hour into the flight."
Cons: "Even though the Atlanta to Toronto arrived 'early' I had barely 20 minutes to get to the other plane- I would not have made it with out the amazing staff of weather and the Toronto airport. I use a wheelchair and even zipping through as fast as I could I was 15 minutes late arriving at the gate. I booked this flight thinking I had at least and hour and a bit between flights. Thankfully others on my flight were also late so the Ottawa bound plane did not leave on time"
Pros: "When you are delayed, there is not much to commend."
Cons: "Delayed. That pretty well says it all."

Cons: "Really great flight. Can’t say enough about it."
Cons: "Agent changed our flight to Munich and sent as a email with with confirmation on July 10. involuntary. On July 20. I checked Lufthansa app and found that only flight that was shown was flight Toronto-Thunder Bay. After 3 hours of phoning I found that flight from Munich to Toronto wasn’t available for date that was given us in email. Only option was day earlier or later. Left us to take day earlier and we could not changed last flight( Toronto- Thunder Bay). We had to come on Aug 22. and stay in Toronto for 27 hours and than take a flight to Thunder Bay on Aug 23. We lost a day of our vacation, had to stay at hotel. Not good experience at all. We still don’t know whom to complain about that."

Pros: "Entertainment and food were geat and a great distraction from the seating arrangement and the horrible leg area."
Cons: "Not having a chair leg in the middle of the leg area. being able to sit next to my partner instead of having us split up. If we bought two tickets at the same time we should have been able to sit together. Lastly the huge delay that caused us to miss are final flight."

Cons: "Lufthansa business class in the 747 is dated and not the most comfortable. No pods and privacy. Entraînement system at my seat was defective"

Pros: "Food quality was good, and movies had a great selection. Boarding went quickly."
Cons: "We did not request special meals because in the past there has always been an option without cheese. For both legs of the trip, everything had cheese. They tasted great, but left my husband eating only bread. At the first meal the crew just shrugged their shoulders. Second meal they brought him a snack from business class, but it had cream cheese on the sandwich. Drinks were only served during the meals on an 8 hour flight. When crew came back through at the first meal, they only had two bottles of wine in hand offering top offs (no cart, just physically carrying the bottles). We do not drink alcohol. During the second meal I did not even see them offering the top offs. All other airlines have at least come through a couple of times offering water or soda. Announcements were only audible half the time. Customs forms were confusing for people passing through Canada. This might have been explained over the intercom, but again, it was hard to hear."
Cons: "Very bad food"
Cons: "No seat assigned at check-in or even as they begin boarding. I thought I was flying Lufthansa. Air Canada gate agents were condescending. Very disappointed."
Pros: "The plane was extra comfortable . The Lufthanza is it exceptional airline very nice people better than most American Airlines"
Cons: "Never made it"
Pros: "The crew was organized and very polite. Even if it was a bit of delay the plane made it in time and luggage was readily available"
Cons: "One thing that everyone was complaining about was the temperature . It was very cold and nobody anted to do anything about it. Another thing that I found unwise was the entertainment. It was a large selection of movies with very explicit sexual content. I didn't travel with kids but I was thinking what I would've done if my kids were seated next to a person like I did who was watching this kind of movies.."
Cons: "The entertainment center at my seat was not working properly and kept stopping and would have to be reset."
Pros: "boarding area was bit confusing"
Pros: "New planes, friendly staff, decent space even for economy, great food"
Cons: "One of the restrooms was out of service for most of the flight. The other ran out of toilet paper."
Pros: "I have never flown with Lufthansa, but now, I will fly with them any chance I get. The crew were amazing. Friendly and attentive. For airplane food, it was very good and tasty. Received headphones, a pillow and a blanket for the flight. Legroom was good, but probably cramped for people over 6'0" tall. 24 hour online check-in was smooth an trouble free. I like having the boarding pass on my phone. No paper to carry around."
Pros: "The on board crew worked hard to make up for the 2 hour delay. I was happy to be fed in the right hour flight, but the food was not very good. I did not download the app for inflight entertainment so I can't rate it."
Cons: "The plane departure was delayed and the passengers were left wondering about the flight. There was no announcement to explain until an hour after the departure time. All monitors showed original departure."
Pros: "Very pleasant experience: comfortable airplane and helpful crew, timely departure/arrival, continuing support with information about baggage after arrival."
Pros: "I flew economy. Good plane, ok food, frequent meals, good coffee, free beers and wine, best flight crew I've ever had."
Cons: "economy: The chairs were ok but I've had better ones."
Cons: "This Lufthansa flight was flown through Air Canada, so this review doesn't reflect on other hosts. However the flight was the worst service I've ever had on an airline in every category."
Pros: "Entertainment system, food. Crew was great."
Cons: "Delayed boarding and artival to YYZ"
Cons: "It took too long to drop by luggage. Some of the crew wasn't friendly."
Pros: "The crew was professional and cordial. For some reason the entire AV system needed to be rebooted which required at least 15 minutes."
Cons: "There was supposed to be a meal and a snack on this flight. There was a good meal but the "snack" was a pack of pretzels. I think Lufthansa's partner AC could do a little better. I think the drinks cart should precede the food cart. I did not receive my drink until 3/4 of the way through my meal."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Staff were fantastic!"
Cons: "No entertainment system for a 10 hour flight! Found out once we were in the boarding area via an announcement to download the Air Canada app to use their wifi entertainment. Or rent an iPad. Not cool! The elderly lady beside us didn't even own a phone. That's a long flight! And all my records indicated Lufthansa (run by AC) flight. So strange. No wonder people are not AC fans. Understandable to say the least."
Cons: "Not enough leg room I am 6ft 3 tall"
Cons: "Gate distances were too far away and passport control in Munich is not organized"
Pros: "The price was good and connections were well-timed. Lufthansa had great food and service. A glass of pear brandy after dinner? Yes, please! I've seen a few other negative reviews for Lufthansa, but I've always had great experiences with them. The crew and food are top-notch."
Cons: "We had two legs on Lufthansa and the third was Air Canada. Lufthansa was great; great service, great food. But on Air Canada there was no food on a 5-hr international flight, the video screen didn't work well, and the flight attendant was having a rough day. And we took off at least 30 minutes late due to a couple of technical issues."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very polite and helpful. The seats had those "wings" on either side of the head rest to help keep your head from bobbing back and forth. There were a few good movies to watch that were current, but a lot of old movies that we had zero interest in."
Cons: "The flight was considered a Lufthansa flight and had a Lufthansa flight number, but was operated by Air Canada. We could not check in online ahead of time for some reason. When we got to the airport, we tried to check in at the Lufthansa kiosk and check in line, but they told us we had to go to the Air Canada area. The ticketing/check in process was very confusing. As for the food, the chicken "wrap" was not a wrap, and was a weird Hot-Pocket type meal. After each meal, we ended up having to hold our garbage for quite some time which made manuvering in and out of seats a little tricky. I wish the seat cushion had a little more cushion since we were sitting for so long. Also at some point the overhead lights came on and stayed on, which was annoying if you were trying to nap."
Pros: "That there was a flight from Toronto to Minneapolis."
Cons: "It was really cramped and small. The gate was far away from everything and cold."
Cons: "The return leg has been nothing but a disaster, in every way possible, specifically my time and financially. At no point in the booking process, when I paid over $800 for the trip, was I told that I needed a specific travel visa (Canadian ETA) to fly back into Toronto for my return flight. Subsequently when I checked in for my flight yesterday morning in Manchester, England, I did not have the required travel documents and had to be rerouted onto a flight into the U.S. at a cost to me of $350. The rerouted flight got me to Washington Dulles airport, where I then had to purchase a second flight to get me home to Cleveland, Ohio, at an additional/extra cost of $450. MY CAR IS PARKED AT TORONTO PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT!!! I am having to now rent a car and drive there tomorrow (Friday) to collect my car, at another additional cost of $100 plus a 10-hour round trip. Due to the lack of information and communication on your companies behalf, I am down close to a $1,000 and will lose 2-days in work as of the additional days I am having to travel back to Toronto to collect my vehicle. I would appreciate contact from your organization to find the avenue I need to take for compensation of my time and finances. Regards"
Cons: "This airline has little respect for its customers. In the economy/coach cabin, they squeeze the seat distances to such an extent that, when the person in front of you leans their chair back, you cannot get out of your seat at an upright angle. You have to significantly bend your body. To not loose your balance, you have to grab on to the seat in front of you and that disturbs the other passenger. If they're sleeping, they can be woken up by that. Lufthansa does not care much for its passengers. Nor do many other companies, for that matter, but I think Lufthansa is taking things further than most airlines. It is a disgrace. Their brand is not what it once was."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours, for a reason they never made clear after they let the passengers wait in line for 45 minutes to board. Once aboard, the Lufthansa planes were much much less comfortable than the Air Canada plane I took to Frankfurt. There is very little space and the seats are crammed together. The food they served was very bad, especially again in comparison with Air Canada. Once we arrived in Toronto, they made us wait nearly an hour before exiting the aircraft. It would seem that the Toronto airport would have to know we were coming and should have prepared accordingly, but apparently not. We sat, several passengers missed their connecting flights and were angry. I nearly missed my flight, having to run and race through customs (who are in no hurry)."
Pros: "Nothing horrible experience"
Cons: "Staff in Los Angeles, service non existent in Greece no entertainment for 11 hours no tablets available"
Cons: "2 1/2 hour wait while boarded then missed flights in toronto. Toronto airport a mess! Unclear directions and procedues."
Pros: "The flight attendance were nice."
Cons: "One of worst EU to US flights ever. Food was Ick, entertainment?? (even if you paid for the premium the choices were bad)."
Cons: "My tv did not work all way from M to T,complain 3 times, was promised to reset tv. Never get it."
Pros: "The crew did really well in serving everyone. They were polite, helpful and on the go from the time we boarded until the time we landed."
Cons: "The greatest issue I have has to do with the state of Gatwick which is now under construction. Air conditioning was not available at our gate nor the seating area. We stood at our gate for a long time before being processed so that we could enter the seating area for the flight. We went from hot to hotter prior to boarding."
Cons: "We missed this connecting flight."
Cons: "I wasn't even on this airline my booking reference said that I was. I had this airlines flight number I go to the gate to check in, and then for me I'm on Air Canada. This was a mass from the start I will never use this airline or Air Canada again they ruin my login and told me it's still usable we had a delayed for three hours on the plane. Never never again!"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "My passport number was incorrect leading to an inconvenience at check in"

Cons: "we need to check in again at Beijing airport. the restroom is so terrible ."
Pros: "Their service is superb"
Pros: "Lots of snacks available"
Cons: "The announcements regarding turbulence were more disturbing than the turbulence.... It was just too loud"
Pros: "Excellent service, good movies"
Cons: "Seats a bit tight fitting. Food was average."
Cons: "I missed my flight because of wrong details the airline sent me by email. I arrived 3 hours before, but when I arrived, it was too late, and the flight already departured. The only next flight to TLV, Israel, was on the 2nd of Nov- 2 days later! I had to wait a whole day in the airport for another flight with another airline (ELAL) which I paid for it 2900 RMB! It's really unfair, and the women in the check-in desk wouldn't help me nor give me any info in order to book a new ticket :( It was a horrible experience, and I definitely wont fly with Hainan Airlines again."
Pros: "We had a great experience flying with Hainan. We mostly enjoyed the availability of snacks and beverages throughout the flight."

Cons: "I was disappointed with the airports in China"
Cons: "I was disappointed with the airports in China"

Cons: "I did not get aeroplan Credit"
Cons: "If You say the suitcase will go through the connection, make sure it happens. It there are security issues or others, I want to know my suitcase didn't make the flight at the gate or when I arrive Israel. Not to wait one hour for it tom come out Poor boarding system Staff doesn't smile and kind of gives you orders. At least this is the way it feels."
Pros: "Very friendly"
Cons: "See above. Delayed flights!!!"
Pros: "Business class. New airplane. The flight arrived reasonably on time. Pleasant staff."
Cons: "Business class. Staff not experienced, not trained, Incapable of delivering the service on an orderly basis. Staff had to be constantly reminded of Order. I have written to the company. It is interesting that the company gets a B787 but buys seats that are two generations ago. Not as comfortable as the competition outside mainland China."
Pros: "Crew were very cooperative but did not know much English."
Cons: "We had a screaming child who continuously threw temper tantrums. THe crew were unable to get parents to manage the girls who were about 3 and 5 years of age. A baby you can understand but this girl was old enough to be talked to."
Pros: "Every aspect was top notch for an economy seat. The staff was attentive, the flight was super smooth, the entertainment decent and the seats comfortable. On time and hassle free! Would definitely fly with them again."
Cons: "old plane, little leg room. prior flight with Hainan was much better. entertainment tablet did not work."
Pros: "Big plane, nice Crew"
Cons: "This is a review regarding the flight from Montreal to Guangzhou, not the return flight. 1. HanNan air line use same plane for international and domestic flight, so in BeiJing airport, you end up walked all the way from international terminal to domestic terminal(which can not be avoided), and have to take shuttle from the gate travel back to the international terminal. It is not nice in winter or bad weather or travel with kids. 2. For traveler comes from other city with connection flight, HN air line is not able to provide the boarding pass of next connection flight after oversee flight. It is kind of hassle. On the returning flight, the on board entertainment system did not work even after restart. No any movie or TV, only music and games were available."
Cons: "My luggage never made it to Tokyo. I have tried calling lost and found multiple times but nobody ever picks up. I have emailed them multiple times with no response. Everything I brought for my 2 month trip in Japan was in there. This has brought nothing but stress. I just want some sort of answer"
Pros: "Staff are profesional"
Cons: "long wait for connection"
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Riding the bus to get to the airplane. Lack of legroom."
Cons: "One of our bags didn't arrive to chengdu, we had to spend our own time and money in order to pick it up the day after our flight. I think the appropriate way was to send it to the place where we are staying or at least compensate us for the taxie fee to the airport and back."
Pros: "Getting to my destination safely"
Cons: "The boarding time was extremely off and there was no information to be given by the staff... the trip from the terminal to the plane took about 40 times as long as it should have, and the entire plane was crammed into one single, stinky, non-airconditioned bus. The boarding process was an absolute madhouse with no order whatsoever. The in-flight entertainment was non existent. I was happy to get to BKK and will not be flying via Beijing hopefully ever again."
Pros: "Smooth trip."
Cons: "They lost my baggage on the Beijing layover"
Cons: "Flight was canceled first, then it was delayed. It almost took me 2 days to finish this trip. I waited 5 hours for the crew to arrange a hotel for me. This experience was just horrible."
Pros: "Economical, free meals on all flights, friendly and efficient staff."
Cons: "Not the best connections or direct flights, crew sometimes tedious to work with. Good out weighs the bad."
Cons: "Specifically requested a vegan meal, but when on board, there was no vegan meal to be found. Ended up eating scraps."
Cons: "Flight to Beijing was delayed for 3 hours without any advance notifications, only aware at the time if check in. Staff serve non chinese passangers differently and less informative. During the 14 hour flight, cabin so noisy as passangers talked very loud. Remote control did not work at all. Very disapponted and won't fly with this airline anymore"
Cons: "took shuttle bus to the plane and then waited in the shuttle bus about 40min to get in, nobody of the crew told us why need to wait."
Pros: "Crew were very nice. Space was large. food was better than other airlines"
Pros: "The crew were professional and helpful they spoke English very well too."
