Pros: "Crew, food, comfort, entertainment and many good things"
Cons: "I love everything"
Pros: "Service and food was good."
Pros: "great service. my kids loved the special treatment!"
Pros: "My flight was postponed or delayed as the airline like to call it until the next day due to Narita International Airport closing after 11pm! First of all I didn’t realize major international airports closes especially with a airplane still on the runway! After our flight was “delayed” Korean Airlines scrambled to get us into hotels. This process was very poorly organization and many of us non Japanese speakers were left very confused because they kept forgetting to interpret what they said into English. I had to keep reminding them. We had to stay in long lines throughout the process which took up at least 3hrs. On top of that we waited at least 45 minutes the day after to get our new boarding passes! I was so over my trip to Japan by then and very disappointed with how Korean airlines handled the situation. I will most likely not take Korean airlines again and it will be a long time until I take another trip to Japan."
Cons: "Their food"
Pros: "nothing, i regret flying west jet but i had no choice bc it was the only option for my layover."
Cons: "- boarding was late - take off time took forever (kept circling around) - no entertainment - uncomfortable seats - very loud plane compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Seat room was too small, couldn't comfortably fit in seat"
Pros: "The crew was the most courteous and efficient we ever flew with. We were served 2 meals enroute to Japan with no charge as well as free entertainment. Children were given Pororo stuffed animals and blankets. We are frequent fliers with United Air and was never treated like this on any of their flights! United should take lessons from Korean Air on efficiency, graciousness and being #1!"
Cons: "Wish Korean Air flew domestic US flights. We would only fly Korean!"
Pros: "I like the Korean bibimbap food in the movie selection was good for the Korean and Asian movies although there were just a few"
Cons: "People did not follow the boarding orders everybody just lined up all at one time and the crew let them on board even though they weren't supposed to go on so even though I was supposed to board first I could board last. I didn't really like the selection for the Japanese and Korean m music with no CJ pop and Kpop like more traditional Japanese music like Koto and more traditional Korean music"
Pros: "Lots of leg room, great meal, and excellent flight attendant service."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "They have bibimbap which is always a great meal option on a plane. The plane felt clean and new. Flight attendants were very nice and made several rounds of water service. Duty free catalog was immense, esp for Korean skincare. Great chance to shop."
Cons: "If you're on an extra long flight, you might feel like there aren't enough movie options in the entertainment system, but my flight was only 8 hours so I was satisfied."
Pros: "Great flight crew, speedy and efficient departure procedure"
Pros: "Big screen. Full soda cans. Not too cold. Space for legs"
Pros: "Great seat and fairly decent food."
Pros: "The staff was excellent."

Cons: "Korea Air is a great airline. Jin Air (for the return part) was OK. The flight attendants of BOTH airlines are GREAT, but the seats in Jin Air are cramped."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Kayak used a sub company to reserve flights. My husband was involved in a collision at sea and was not able to make the flight due to military deployment status. I tried continuously to contact the sub company to request a waiver or hold on the flight. The number provided kept me on a hold . There were no answers to phone calls from information provided on receipt. Emails only stated the fees that would be imposed for any action I conducted. I will never use kayak again."
Cons: "Crew members scrambled to prepare for live demo of inflight saftey as video stoped. Crew member did not give clear demonstration of saftey. Such as seat belt buckle faced her, and life jacket was inside out."
Pros: "Entertainment had a wide variety of choices. The food that I could eat was delicious and served with REAL silverware on REAL plates and cups. Amazing. The commitment to the environment and style is truly outstanding."
Cons: "I have a severe food allergy, and all of the dinner options had the food I was allergic to. BUT! They were willing to give me a bunch of little foods to make a whole meal, and were truly sympathetic to my plight. I'd fly with them again"
Cons: "Seat was so narrow, my elbows were stuck to my torso the whole way"
Pros: "Business class lie flat bed"

Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "My flight was 30 mins late landing,I missed a very important meeting.Food selection wasn't great,I think it should more than Korean food to choice from,just awful food selection.check in service wouldn't allow me to upgrade from economy to business when the plan was full at all"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient. Plane was clean, the seats and leg room were good. Cabin attendants were very friendly and attentive during the entire flight. Entertainment system was easy to use and had a lot of movies and other stuff to keep you busy. Headphones and slippers were provided. Enjoyed my flight. Will fly Korean Airlines again if I have the chance."
Pros: "The crew performance"
Cons: "15 minute delay"
Pros: "food selection & crew courtesy"
Pros: "The meals were really good for plane food, the flight attendants came around often offering water or juice, and really competitive price for tickets."

Cons: "Seats on any airline are always a bit tight unless you pay for an upgrade. The music variety could have featured a few more American artists."
Pros: "The food, the service,the entertainment were the best. Every time the bathrooms were used they were cleaned, you never see that on US based flights, ever!!! Food was well prepared and tasted great. Will fly KAL every time I can"
Cons: "Lights in cabin too bright while serving meals. Could turn it down a notch"
Pros: "Great service overall . Crew was very nice."
Cons: "at 9pm flight they turn the lights on after the take off. Very difficult time sleeping. Again they'll turn the lights on 1.5hrs before landing, too."

Pros: "Our flight was delayed and we were accommodated by being put up in a great hotel in Seoul."
Cons: "Did not like that we reached our destination in Vietnam half a day late, since we had a wedding to attend. The vegetarian/vegan meal option was very bland. The hostesses I felt were a bit sexist, perhaps due to being Korean. I asked for a glass of wine for myself and a whiskey on the rocks for my boyfriend. He was served a hefty glass 1st, and I was given my drink 2nd, which was a very small pour. I asked for more wine and was given only a tiny bit more."
Pros: "tye food was amazing!"
Cons: "The plane did not have individual air vents, so at times I was too warm but could do nothing about it."

Pros: "Crews were great. They worked fast and helpful."
Cons: "The main issue was getting off the plane in Sydney - we had to wait for a bus to offload us as the plane was sitting a long distance from the terminal. The bus eventually came, offloaded half the passengers and then returned 20 minutes later to start to offload the rest. It's the longest time I've ever spend disembarking from a plane and clearing an airport - very poor whoever was responsible (I'm assuming Sydney airport was at fault)."
Cons: "It was a short hopper so didn't mind much. I actually slept on this plane."
Pros: "Honestly everything went really well. Like the title say, it was easy booking, a great price, and I got some wonderful memories to bring home."

Pros: "ANA use the Boeing 787 for this leg of the journey. This is the best plane flying in the air right now."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "easy check in."
Cons: "can't choose my own seats."
Pros: "It was short."
Cons: "Two key issues: 1. Split up seating 2. Required to pick up and check baggage with limited time due to customs check. 1. They split up all four of our seats (despite booking more than 30 days in advance). Our seven (7) year old daughter was by her self. So was our fifteen (15) year old son. When we addressed it to baggage check (part of major issue number 2), they put two seats together, across an aisle, with both children in them. We obviously just sat one of the adults with the seven year old. This was not just us. SEVERAL families had children seated alone and spread all over the plane. ANA needs to require grouped seating for children under thirteen (13) years old with an adult. 2. Tokyo Haneda is the only airport I can think of where I have to pick up and check baggage again just to clear customs. The flights were 1 hour and 45 minutes apart. With nearly an hour dedicated to getting baggage claimed and getting through customs, we barely had time to fix two of our split seats (see issue 1) and rush via a free bus route that took 6 minutes (luckily we were first stop) to get us to domestic terminal 2. We were then lucky again because we made it through security quickly and our gate happened to be right next to the security check we chose. Another side piece: Haneda Domestic Terminal 2 has four security check areas (A-D). We saw no identifying marks indicating which were closest to which gate. Our bags have already been through a bag check process. Feel free to run them through security scans. Don’t make us wait to collect them just to walk them through the customs desk and check them again."
Pros: "Staff are super kind."
Cons: "The fact that my feet got very swollen (twice their normal size) due to the small space - that had the passenger to my right sleeping on top of my right side."

Cons: "There could be more movies and more American music in the entertainment package. The flight was overbooked by 5 passengers, so I could not get a boarding pass on the first part of my trip, from Bangkok to Taipei. Fortunately they had a boarding pass waiting for me when I got to Taipei."
Pros: "Food served were delicious. Great customer service."

Cons: "My flight was able to be rerouted to Europe from Philippines. 2-3 month wait for a very small refund on my cancelled return flight (cancelled by me)."
Pros: "EVA Airlines was a wonderful experience from the beginning all the way to the end. From checking in to receive boarding passes, boarding, stewardess, the food, everything was wonderful. They were always pleasant and had a smile on their face. When my trip was changed by the website (vayama) to fly back to the states, EVA Airlines went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care, placed on another flight, and made it home to get to work the next day. They didn’t have to take care of me, but the did and the professionalism is amazing! I’m very pleased with this airline and will fly with them again!"
Cons: "Boarding pass"
Pros: "The food, service,the smooth take off and landing, less announcements, seats are spacious enough"
Cons: "Since I traveled with my daughter (4yo), I got to board early from LAX to TPE but my second flight from TPE to BKK, I had to wait till they called my zone seat. I was holding my daughter at that point since they took away my stroller way earlier than the boarding time. I would like to ask for the same standard of parents traveling with children who are 6 or younger to board first so they can get settle and these patents are tiring from dealing with their children during the flight. They are extra tired than regular passengers."
Cons: "The 6 hours layover."

Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, crew very nice, helpful and attentive."
Cons: "Plane is very cold and expensive charges for wifi."
Pros: "Great service! Modern planes with comfortable seats, great entertainment selection with your own personal display, and places to charge your mobile devices. I'd like more leg room because I'm tall, but their seats are WAY better than USA based carriers. Food is pretty good considering it's airline food. EVA is one of my top choices for SE Asia Travel."
Pros: "Eve air really have a good service."
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "Crew is horrible. Very rude and refused to help by any means when i asked for my baby stroller. I have 2 kids that I had to carry all the way through customs and bagga claim because refuse to bring stroller to the gate and was very rude in their answer. Horrible Experience. I will never fly emirates"
Cons: "train the crew to respect customers, and to show care for families. I'm surprised Emirates always market about how friendly they are with family travels when the crew not only refuse to bring the stroller to the gate like all other airlines, but was also very rude. Her name was Annalie"
Pros: "Overall good experience."

Cons: "Perhaps boarding."
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent. That's why i prefer to fly with Emirates. Toilets are clean"
Cons: "On this flight, the Gluten Free snack wasn't good. Only one meal was served. For a 10 hour flight, there should be two meals. A snack was served towards the end of the flight. The GF snack was not good! it was two rice cakes with chicken inside. I felt as if they ran out of GF bread!"
Pros: "The crew was awesome, seating is never comfortable for a long flight."
Cons: "I do not recall any plane departing the dock on time. All Airlines need to work on boarding quicker and leaving on time."

Cons: "Everything was GREAT"
Pros: "I did like the cleanliness ."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly at all . Stewerdess did not smile at all .. only to their “favorite “ 2 or 3 passengers. I can’t believe I did not receive a hot tea on the way to Athens or the way back to Newark."
Cons: "By the time the food cart reaches rear zones , there are not much left to choose from. It should be better managed so all passengers have a chance to pick the food of their choice."
Pros: "Good service upon check in and in flight."
Cons: "By the time the food cart reaches rear zones , there are not much left to choose from. It should be better managed so all passengers have a chance to pick the food of their choice."
Cons: "Food did not meet the usually high standard associated with Emirates . The menu was bland and the main course was served cold."
Pros: "I flew round trip on their flagship Airbus 380 from Toronto to Dubai, about 13-14 hours. Crew was great, plenty of food and drinks, about 3x meals, lost track of how many drink runs, maybe 5x. It was almost too much food & drink! The in-flight entertainment was great, touch screen was fantastic, USB port, even power outlet, on back of seat, plenty of entertainment choices from movies, to video games, to trivia, I even got a kick out of all the camera's mounted on the outside of the plane with all the flight tracking details available on screen, plenty of bathrooms. Its such a big plane it didn't even feel like you are flying. I'm 6'4" so I always choose an aisle seat so i can at least stretch one leg out, the crew was even mindful not to bump my elbow or even my leg when it was extended out into the aisle while i was asleep...which was more than accommodating to something I shouldn't have been doing! Overall Excellent, I wish every airline was like Emirates. They're bringing back the old school service and class airlines used to be like. I know people don't dress up while they air travel anymore, but I'll be dressing up the next time I fly Emirates! ;)"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Pros: "Seat was really comfortable and leg room was excellent. In flight entertainment will keep you busy."

Pros: "Great crew, service, food and entertainment."
Cons: "Hard landing"
Cons: "I was not let onto the flight in Entebbe because I arrived at the airport an hour before the flight departed. I was given no notice of this rule (apparently only applicable on Emirates flights) and was forced to delay my trip 2 days and pay an additional $1045 for a replacement flight home."
Cons: "Boarding of gate A20 location in Dubai"
Pros: "Entertainment options, boarding process"
Cons: "Food quality is still good but slightly below previous experiences"
Pros: "- Excellent entertainment. New movies in various languages."
Cons: "- Crew not very attentive with infant and infant needs (i.e. bassinet). - Only 2 full meals and 1 snack for a 15 hours flight. First meal (breakfast) was served about 2-3 hours after take-off. Flight took off at 10 am so perhaps first meal should have been lunch. - Heard another passenger requesting veg. meal but crew said they don't have any extras and only serve special meals for those who request before. For a flight in which 60-70% of passengers are Indians, some extra vegetarian meals should be available (for those who do not know how to book it in advance)."
Pros: "food was ok service was excellent fiji airways good Emirates nice girls and good service"
Cons: "we did not like the long wait at Dubai 9 hours in airport is very painful i think that 9 hours wait took most of our energies ."
Cons: "Other than the delay in boarding, which resulted in a bit of chaos, everything went very well."
Pros: "Hospitality and food"
Pros: "The new plane is nice, reasonably comfortable in economy with clean bathrooms."

Cons: "toilets could have been a bit cleaner"
Pros: "The business class seats were on the new Boeing 777 planes were very well equipped with the biggest screens I have ever encountered throughout my many travels. Service provided by cabin crew was great, too."
Cons: "Headphone was taken by crew the moment plane landed."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment"
Pros: "Normal checking process completed and waiting at gate early."
Cons: "Flight initially was said to be 1 hour late and then it was cancelled altogether. There was no information about why and what are the next steps. People were just following blindly as the group moved, finally everyone was led out of the airport after immigration cancellation, then to baggage claim where we had to collect all checked in big bags and board a bus to take us to hotel . The hotel was good but getting there with the big bags for just a few hours and then the flight was scheduled for night (12 hrs later than original schedule) They could have just held the checked in baggage with them, or arranged an alternate aircraft to arrive sooner."
Cons: "Flights are always good but back office staff is always careless not to bother any complaints or never solved any complaints they do not care of customer bcoz they have business thier is no other airline right now but in future may be they loose customer like me"

Cons: "It was too cold and the blanket was too light"
Pros: "I liked the boarding and most the crew was excellent"
Cons: "I specified ovo Lacto vegetarian because I eat cheese and diary. I got a stale and very small bread role with strawberry jam, wilted fruit and margarine for the breakfast meal. The non vegetarians got a full plate of croissant, cheese, fruit and jams. When I asked for butter I got no response. I asked three times before I could get some butter as I do not eat margarine. Lunch was wilted and slimy lettuce and tired fruit for dessert. The main meal itself was delicious but I was hungry the whole flight due to the small helping.. Another small but slightly fresher role and margarine again. Next to the non vegetarian meal there was less than half the food. It was very disappointing."
Pros: "Lots of food. Ok about giving out water between meal service"
Cons: "Aisles were very tight so hard to pass people when leaving/queuing for toilets."
Cons: "Filthy bathrooms. Food service slow and erratic. Too hot."
Pros: "I liked that I got the vegan meal I ordered, the seats were big and there was plenty of leg room. Lots of movie choices, smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "Entebbe airport was in chaos with renovations making check in confusing and slow"
Pros: "The stewards were really fantastic, and what started out as a delay because of air traffic control, wound up landing on time. Really smooth flight."
Cons: "they are delay 2 hours"
Cons: "The TVs in economy class weren’t working and it was an 8 hour flight so it would have been nice to have some entertainment during that time"
Pros: "About as good as they come."
Cons: "You could have had my luggage arrive. Now I don’t know where it is"
Cons: "Could've been on time"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour so we were rebooked. Spent extra day in Zurich, and missed our hotel reservation in San Francisco. San Francisco was not our final destination. We had to fly for more than 24 hours in one day(time change). We missed part of our family function. It's been an exhausting trip"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, food was very good."
Pros: "Left on time. Quick flight."
Pros: "Swiss air Business is an excellent choice. I will fly this Airline again. It was extremely comfortable, service was excellent, and the flight crew made up our lost time in the air. We had a tight connection and they waited for us."
Pros: "nice flight"
Pros: "Seat was ok, crew was friendly"
Cons: "Movie options were limited"
Pros: "Best flight for a long time. great service and entertainment."
Cons: "I was unable to order vegetarian meal before the flight. This also a KAYAK / VAYAMA issue - you can not pass the info about special meal to the airline and Swiss seems to require that you order through them in order to specify such details. You should improve this."
Pros: "The booking to a new flight was seamless."
Cons: "We had to take a different flight on Lufthansa which had a whole list of it's own problems."
Pros: "Nice self boarding"
Cons: "No big screen to communicate priority to boarding since I am deaf."
Pros: "Also poor this airline is overpriced"
Cons: "Long disorganized boarding process Old airplane"
Cons: "It was a 2 hour 40 minute flight. No entertainment."
Cons: "Reviewing Business class Nothing memorable at all. An ok dinner after take off followed by a tiny salad 8h later before landing. Quite minimal for such a long flight. The entertainment system needs special mention for its awfulness. The system in Business class would be considered poor even in Econ - small screen, terrible picture quality and a painful, prehistoric interface."
Pros: "Nice crew, nice plane"
Cons: "Late arrival at Dubai, late departure and late at final destination...No information given to passangers!"
Cons: "I have just had the most unpleasant experience with Swiss Air and feel that anyone on FB should be very careful when dealing with this airline. I am a Gold Member of Star Alliance for more than 20 years and have flown dozens of times on Swiss and would expect courtesy and consideration in return for my loyalty to their airline. Their flight from Hong Kong to Zurich leaves at 00:15. I mistakenly booked this for Nov 9th instead of the intended late evening of the 9th which then turns out to be Nov 10th. When I discovered my error, I called Swiss at least six times to explain my error and ask if my son could stand by for the same flight on the 10th or even apply the amount to rebook the same flight the next day. ZERO flexibility or consideration. Missed flight, lose entire value. Start from scratch. Astonished that an airline that claims to be serving their customers would treat me this way. I travel through Europe at least 6-10 times a year from Asia. I will now route through Frankfurt, Munich, Paris, London, Vienna, Instanbul or even Moscow before ever going through Zurich again. I encourage anyone making travel plans to be very careful when considering flights with Swiss Airlines. Perhaps this treatment of a loyal customer explains why they went through bankruptcy already once."
Pros: "Crew was good. Very polite. The plane was old. No place to charge your phone. The in flight screen required the use of a remote which was inconvenient when having to wake up my neighbor to pull it out of the armrest. Food wasn’t great. Skipped the last meal service. It was like flying 20 years ago. Not bad, but not as good as it could be nowadays."
Pros: "I really liked the "About my flight" application on the viewing screens because it always gave me an idea of what we were flying over and how much longer we woulld be in the air. The food was excellent and I was pleasantly surprised that I could have wine with dinner or any time the attendants offered beveragess. The attendants were always professional and helpful. They all were fluent in English as well as several other languages. It was a nice touch when the attendant wore white gloves when he or she was collecting passengers' trash after meals and/or beverage service. I loved the cheese that was served at dinner."
Cons: "My seat was a little confined when I put my carry-on bag in front of me on the flight to Zurich, but it was roomier when I stowed my carry-on in the overhead compartment on the returtn flight."
Pros: "The woman who checked in my baggage was very helpful and patient. I had to re-arrange some weight and she assisted me in maximizing weight and minimizing cost. The flight attendants we very kind in trying to assist me in finding appropriate food. The flight was very comfortable and the flight attendants were wonderful all-around."
Cons: "Boarding of the flight was delayed which impacted our arrival time in Zurich. I had a connecting flight- but so did at least 10 other Swiss flights at that time. The queues for customs were incredibly long and the only reason I made my flight was because I ran through the airport. I also had a challenging time with food. I am celiac and often cannot eat the standard fare on planes. I called in advance of my flight to notify someone of my allergy - and they told me the only way I could ensure such a meal was by purchasing a meal that cost $30. I was not willing to pay such a hefty surcharge for food because I had already payed a bit extra than budgeted because my partner had recommended the excellent service of Swiss. I have traveled on several airlines for intercontinental flights between Boston and Europe - and have always had my allergy accommodated at no extra cost. Once on the flight - I was offered an orange and banana for dinner and a small yoghurt for breakfast. I will be flying Swiss again in December and I sincerely hope they will be better equipped to provide for my dietary requirements."
Pros: "Nice plane, organized food and boarding."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Quiet, staff do not bother you. Seats are big enough to rest."
Cons: "Boarding and sitting takes a bit of time."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 25 minutes leaving Rome."
Pros: "Loved the crew they were great!!"
Cons: "Movie selection not that great! Also the touch screens were taking for ever to process the comments. I would click play and it would rewind or next and nothing would happen. A330-300 is a new plane and I was just expecting better entertainment system."
Pros: "Friendly crew, clean flight"
Cons: "Charged 45 SF (about $50) to check 1 bag"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive, kind and professional on their ways through the cabin. I appreciated the hot towels near the end of the flight."
Cons: "There were headphones (as well as pillows and blankets, much appreciated), but the jacks for the headphones only fit the SwissAir headphones, so if passengers brought their own headphones, they could only get a mono output. It was difficult to hear the entertainment through only one ear."
Cons: "On ticket it said time between flights was 1hr 25min, but as soon as we got off the plane we had to RUN through Zurich airport, where 1000 other people were all trying to funnel down the single escalator to Passport Control, to get to our gate. Then we had to wait in another Passport Control. TERRIBLE and stressful. The actual flight was fine."
Pros: "good stuff"
Cons: "HAving to walk across the Zurich airport to buy a business class upgrade was bad. I just wanted to buy the upgrade at the desk. No need to go from terminal 3 to terminal 1. total waste of 20-30 minutes. Ironic that this happens to people willing to spend $'s of dollars for convenience and comfort. should be able to purchase upgrade ASAP with a smile at check-in."
Pros: "Swiss has amazing crew. Incredibly polite and accommodating. Their food (for economy class seat) was very good to excellent. The new Boeing 777 is also a smooth plane to ride."
Cons: "The boarding process in Zurich was a free for all. There is not a "method" to their boarding (i.e. by row or zone) so all 300 passengers crowded around the gate. We paid $100 for exit seats but the seats were barely wide enough for me...a medium built thin male. Unfortunately this appears to be the trend. Swiss would do well to have a wide economy section."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, blankets very nice."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable, and arm rests between the seats don't go up all the way. Boarding was not well organized, not done by rows from the back to the front so a bit chaotic. As with all airlines in economy these days, the food was very mediocre, and the overall comfort of the flight was pretty poor."
Pros: "Almost nothing.."
Cons: "1) my seat was broken (didn't recline) 2) my USB charger... Broken.. 3) my food was in a metal container that was stamped and the ink from the stamp leaked and was pressed across my food. I was literally not about to eat the alphabet... (luckily, a nice attendant came by and apologized, as I know it was not her fault the food came out like this. 4) Rude attendant came over 25 mins after I had turned on my attendant button to ask for a bottle of water. (I turned it on while they were still serving drinks) (also forgot I needed water to take some medicine that required to drink a full glass) She came up to me and my fellow passenger, yelled at BOTH us while she was waving her hands our face. I mentioned to her "it's not polite to treat people this way" she moved her hands closer to my face thrusting her whole body over my fellow passengers face, and continued yelling at me about turbulence (while she's completely avoiding the rule herself.) He and I were both seated and buckled and not bothering anyone. She could've just taken her own lecture and kept ignoring the signal. I wrote about this in customer support letter that the 'NICE' and 'Helpful' attendant Gave to me that sincerely apologized for the previous attendants behavior."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi on board."
Cons: "The seats are too close together front to back. It's torture if you are six feet tall and the person in front of you put the seat in the back position for 8 hours."
Pros: "Vegetarian curry lunch/dinner was good. Cabin temperature was good. Bathroom was clean."
Cons: "flight crew were snippy. Had to ask for tea in between meals. Was assigned a middle seat when there were so many empty seats. The idea that we had to pay for seat assignments."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "No USB. Entertainment was so-so."
Pros: "Your crew is amazing."
Cons: "Over 1h delay Horrible sandwich Very rude staff"
Pros: "Attendants were cordial"
Cons: "There was no organized boarding of coach passengers. There was sufficient food provided but overall quality was marginal."
Cons: "I paid for a seat on the aisle with extra leg room. Seat 24D. There was only minimal foot space because of some type of metal box under seat 23D. I don't think that I should had to pay $45 for the extra leg room just to receive cramped foot space."
Cons: "No plugs for USB chargers in economy. Entertainment units were broken."
Pros: "The food was excellent and the staff were attentive. The flight was smooth and the captain kept the passengers well informed"
Pros: "On every flight I have ever been on, if I request it I can get a whole water bottle vs. the small cups offered...however on this flight they refused saying 'it is against the rules"?? As a result I had to bother the flight crew over 10 times to refill my small glass...a huge inconvenience for both of us. The other inconvenience (one I have not experienced in over 5-6 years) was the the headphone jacks were the old fashioned kind...meaning you could not use your own, and the buds given by the airline were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked, boarding took forever."
Pros: "I did not like anything about this flight"
Cons: "My flight has been cancelled with no ecplonation. They reissue e ticket for me under different name. The crew were very rude . My suitcase was lost and still I have not received it . They promised to deliver ."
Pros: "All but the service"
Cons: "Flight attendants seem confused. Service was below par. Took forever to clean food service. Business class had the lights off after dinner at least 40 minutes before we did in Economy. Couldn't get water I requested for a long time."
