It was just before we boarded the aircraft that we had to literally go thru another security check, we were body checked, all our carry on luggages inspected again and swabbed down. The staff were very rough and not courteous, we were treated like scum. The business class experience for travellers should be better, we were then lined up with Economy class passengers. Turkish Airlines Ground Staff are extremely rude and condescending, muttering under their breath, laughing and being very disrespectful. This was very demeaning.
Very good experience . Will fly again and will recommend friends and family to fly THY
Flight from Istanbul to Toronto was delayed which made me miss my flight to Vancouver. No one is willing to pay for my hotel accommodation.
Was misdirected twice, also as a side note, RBC Avion rewards visa has the worst customer service when you need them. Switching cards as soon as I use all my points
Food Flight Attendants Aircraft Istanbul airport
Denied boarding even though I met all requirements of Canadian government and had the documentation to prove it.
Cons: "My flight delayed and I missed my connection"
Pros: "Excellent service for affordable price"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "No one came with drink carts until halfway through the flight. I was very hungry, never offered food. Boarding was late but no communication from staff."
Pros: "the crew was good. The seat were not comfortable"
Cons: "food could have been tastier"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "One piece of our luggage did not arrive on time."
Pros: "Not as my expected"
Cons: "Check in team at airport very tuff and I have 9 kg only they let me pay full SR 450 which too high and generally all airlines they don’t ask u to pay like such weight as business class passenger. Quality of food, aircraft very old and seats not comfortable"
Pros: "Best service, food, seats, space, amenities."
Pros: "Good servise in the plane."
Cons: "I asked isle seat, the Turkish rep. at the ticket office said yes, but when I boarded, I found out that I was given middle seat! I was up set."
Pros: "The food and service were pretty good. The entertainment was good, and the crew very helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible. We were checked out and processed 7 times! The questions we were asked were so ridiculous that at some point I started laughing. The official wanted to see my itinerary since I left the US, and all if the places I had visited! (That was a month after the start of my trip since I was on my way back from my vacation). The seats are made for people who are 5 feet tall and skinny. The airport was so busy that we had to Wait inside the plain for over an hour because there was (taxiing traffic) and could not get on the take off Lane."
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."
Cons: "Entertainment system started out great but technical issues after an hour into our 10hr flight so we we're unable to use it. The flight was full so changing seats was not an option."
Pros: "I liked food, drink, service and entertainment."
Cons: "I disliked seat, a bit."
Cons: "Had a layover in Toronto. From Toronto we flew to Istanbul and then Venice. While waiting in line to board in Toronto, I was told my carry-on luggage was too big and needed to be put under. I asked MULTIPLE times where my luggage would be- either Istanbul or Venice (final destination) and EVERY time I asked, I was told my luggage would be waiting for me in Venice. Once we arrived in Istanbul I asked AGAIN if my carry-on luggage was here or if it would be in Venice and I was told it would be in Venice. Once we arrived in Venice, my luggage was nowhere to be found. The lost luggage crew (and 90% of the people in Venice) were completely rude and acted like we were a huge inconvenience for them. (I've heard that many Europeans cannot stand Americans, but we were not being rude or obnoxious at all to anyone- we just wanted a quiet, romantic vacation.) So safe to say that it was an extremely rough start. We were in Venice for the Glass Art Society Conference in Murano and due to my luggage being lost, had missed the first day and a half, therefore wasting hundreds of dollars. Luckily my boyfriend's phone worked in order to spend our first two days of vacation (not to mention the amount of money spent on international calling costs) tracking down my luggage, but again dealt with completely rude people who barely helped us with any answers and even hung up on us multiple times (and I'd like to add that despite my frustration, I made sure that I was not speaking rudely one bit). The best answers we received were from the people at the Istanbul airport who told us that Venice received my luggage hours before I even called Istanbul- which I do not understand why the Venice airport did not tell me this because I spent all day speaking with them. Once I called back the Venice airport to confirm what the Istanbul airport told us, they said (once again rudely) that they called me on my phone but did not answer (which I already told them that my phone did not have any service and to call my boyfriend's phone number). So to sum up: I will never be flying to Venice ever again."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very kind. The kofte tasted good."
Cons: "They "board" an hour before takeoff but there weren't enough seats at the gate, so for half an hour, no one actually boarded, we just stood or sat on the floor with our carry-on."
Cons: "Of the last 4 times I've flown with Turkish Airlines, I've been asked to move from the seat I booked. If you book and choose a seat in advance of the flight, I should be entitled to keep it."
Pros: "Flight attendants are super friendly and helpful. The food was excellent."
Cons: "Chair are not working well"
Pros: "Screan for every passenger to play"
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. We already went through 3 security checks prior to boarding the flight. Security staff was extremely rude and inconsiderate for peoples belongings."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and almost ontime. Professional staff that was active throughout the flight assisting passengers."
Cons: "The access to the gate was through an escalator only, therefore people on wheelchair or families with strollers could not get to the gate easily."
Pros: "My kids, wife and I loved flying to Turkish Airlines. Always on time, tasty and nutritious food, wonderful staff who help you with smile on their faces. Sure, we'll fly Turkish Airlines from now on."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Pros: "Crew is amazing food is good plane is clean and comfortable"
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."
Pros: "The service from istanbul to dublin route"
Cons: "Bad service from bahrain to istanbul"
Pros: "Flight left on time. Crew was friendly and was multilingual. Entertainment on our personal monitors was good."
Cons: "Overall it was a good flight but since I was not familiar Turkish Air, there were some glitches. Although I'm not wheelchair bound, I have great difficulty walking distances with fear of falling. I was never offered some assistance by the Houston airport or the airline at this point. The seating on the plane is difficult to maneuver for a disabled person. The flight was OK except for cramped spaces. The flight left on time and that was good considering Houston had just gone through the hurricane."
Pros: "they do really their best- they have a good standard."
Cons: "english is hard to understand"
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "1. Seat could have been more comfortable - didn't seem to maintain recline. NOT a problem on my outbound flight. 2. We departed 50 min late. 3. Length of flight 11 + 2 hours to make many connections to Europe."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and I missed all subsequent connections"
Pros: "Food, crew, comfort, not a full flight, enough room for everyone"
Cons: "Plane was one of the old ones but I understand why it was used on small hauls, but it could definitely be upgraded to provide the top of the line service and luxury Turkish is known for and stands for."
Pros: "Food was good the flight was smooth even tho is was snowing and the crew were very nice and professional, wish i could give 10 stars, also best landing ive ever been on in an airplane."
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"
Cons: "Terrible connections. Long delays. Truly awful"
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: "Checkin and time"
Cons: "Food was meh."
Pros: "I liked the service and the food."
Cons: "It could have been on time flight."
Cons: "Because of the coup in Turkey, I had to cancel my flight. I'm still trying to get my partial reimbursement. It been two weeks!"
Cons: "boarding was horrible of both legs of my Turkish Airline. The Istanbul Airport is a total disaster and dysfunctional. Experience delays in both baggage and flights."
Cons: "There seemed to be no check in which confused me a little. The luggage pick up was more of a zoo than usual and plenty of suffocating dust from construction while we waited."
Pros: "Moved into business class much more leg room"
Airlines need to do more to help travellers with quick connections get off the plane first. Why do they board planes from the front? It makes more sense to start the boarding from the back.
It was awesome experience
Not having 2hr delays would be great
The staff at Frankfurt were incredibly rude telling passengers “I don’t have time for you”. I’ve never had a worse experience than with the ground staff Lufthansa in Frankfurt. Avoid at all costs.
Pros: "the crew were amazing. The food was good. 20 minutes late in a snowstorm, amazing. Seats were comfortable. I will definitely fly Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Seat was both comfortable and spacious. Crew were very attentive and personable."
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: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "New planes have 9 sits in the rove (economy class) which affects the passengers comfort."
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."
Pros: "The staff is good"
Cons: "The service for a wheelchair is extremely bad"
Pros: "The agent worked hard to find us another flight to rome"
Cons: "Our plane sat on turnac in Toronto waiting for a parking gate for 30minutes making us miss our connecting flight. Finally arrived but missed our train to Florence had to stay Saturday night in Rome while our villa in Lucca sat empty which was paid for"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and so welcoming! They did not flinch when they saw my three-year-old son and went out their way to make sure we had everything we needed. It was very nice to be greeted with such hospitality!"
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: "Business class is a rip off. They are economy class seats. They don't recline. No entertainment whatsoever!! Horrible experience."
Pros: "Excellent service and friendly staff!"
Cons: "It was very cold"
Cons: "food could have been better especially "breakfast"."
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.."
Pros: "I enjoy that their planes have more space, the food is delicious, and their caring and kind attitudes all through the experience!"
Cons: "The entertainment center at my seat was not working properly and kept stopping and would have to be reset."
Pros: "Seating, cleanliness, crew courteousy, entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding process unclear, poor announcement, and messy. No wifi, choice and quality of food. Entertainment was erratic at times."
Pros: "Exelent crew"
Cons: "Long distance between gates to transfer"
Pros: "boarding area was bit confusing"
Pros: "The trip from frankfurt to boston was amazin"
Cons: "The plane from beirut ti frabkfurt was old. No entertainment on board, no screens"
Pros: "The food was great and the crew was respectful and helpful."
Cons: "I couldn't get my tablet to work with the headphones. In order to watch and hear anything, I had to hold my headphones with a certain pressure and frequently spin the headphones in order to hear anything."
Pros: "every thing was good, so comfortable for a long flight"
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: "There was good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The food was barely edible. I'm glad to have brought a snack in my bag."
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."
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: "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."
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 $1,000 and will lose 2-days in work as of the additional days I am having to travel back to Toronto to collect my vehicle. I would appreciate contact from your organization to find the avenue I need to take for compensation of my time and finances. Regards"
Pros: "Good quality: crew, equipment, customer service"
Cons: "Frankfurt airport: Had to walk for an hour to get from gate to gate. I was getting off an international flight and onto another international flight. International gates are usually closer than that. On the flight: 1. The armrests pull up, which is great if you're traveling with family or a significant other. But, in my case, it was an overweight and obese lady, who didn't fit in her seat and just slipped into half of mine. I was stuck with half a seat with her arm bumping mine for a 12-hour flight. I landed with a bruised arm. It was a round trip flight. When I had submitted a complaint, Lufthansa refunded me a 100$, which is nice of them, but I think they should have upgraded me for my return flight instead to make up for the first flight being uncomfortable. 2. I paid for the internet service and was charged double for it. Again, had to submit a complaint and was refunded the money. Check-in: The online system wouldn't allow me to check in online because my passport wasn't biometric."
Pros: "Excellent steward."
Pros: "Courtesy and friendliness of staff."
Cons: "The cheapo headphones"
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)."
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: "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: "The upgrade to business class"

Cons: "Breakfast was not great"
Pros: "On time, nice breakfast"
Cons: "Not enough leg room, same as everyone"
Pros: "The flight was short: 4 hours. It was in time, etc. Certainly no entertainment."
Cons: "After the breakfast (rather poor) no drink was suggested. There was a cup for tee or coffee. Empty one. After the breakfast they just took it away with other dirty dishes. It happened to all passengers in my neighborhood."
Pros: "Service was great, the stewardess's were very professional and very caring without being too personal which is great for me .Every was done quickly and professionally with a great sense of efficiency and purpose .Hard to explain but so different from other airlines . Multimedia was phenomenal"

Pros: "You guys have. Very professional crew !!"
Cons: "The customer service In Europe wasn’t helping out at all"
Pros: "Overall reasonable flight. Nothing to write home about"
Cons: "Breakfast was what I imagine prison food must be like. Rest of meals were fine"
Pros: "There was no in-flight entertainment system so I rejoiced to discover there was in-flight WiFi."
Cons: "But Wifi did not offer much, just some summary descriptions on the destination. I'd be enchanted to get via WiFi the well-known in-flight map showing which leg of your flight was accomplished."
Pros: "That it is over"
Cons: "Check-in to Canada not possible when passengers have third country passport and Canadian residence card. A combination, although very common, proofed to difficult for AUA personnel. Because of check-in delays lousy seats and miserable overall experience."

Pros: "The flight was very smooth"
Cons: "We were 7 persons on the flight so we brought 7 bags to get on the plain but in the check in they told us that the flight is crowded so we can't get so many bags on. The flight wasn't full and there were plenty of room for our bags."
Cons: "Long transit more than 12H without free accommodation nor meals"
Pros: "The meal was ok The airplane was clean"
Cons: "Seats were very nerow .No help from the crew . Flight delayed"

Pros: "The food was excellent and the business class layout was perfect."
Cons: "On the arrival at Toronto, there was no one at the gate to roll out the gangway bridge. So we waited on the plane 10 minutes. We were flying on to LAX on Air Canada. It took 1 3/4 hours for our luggage to clear the US Customs pre check. Unsatisfactory."
Pros: "Staff was pleasant and competent"
Cons: "Food was way too salty. That needs to be addressed by airlines. Not a healthy or palatable experience."
Pros: "Flight services were good. Staff friendly. food was good"
Cons: "boarding at Tel Aviv was terrible. Specifically a staff member name Michelle was unprofessional and did not care much about passengers who waited for hours at the Group line because there was no indication that it is a group line. No one from the airliner bothered to explain or advise the passengers who were waiting and after more tan hour waiting when they eventually got to the head of the line they were told to go and stand in other lines. This was insane Long waiting times confusion Flight was late hence almost missed connection"
Pros: "The overall flight wads excellent."
Cons: "Boarding on the return flight was poorly handled as there was no organized boarding."

Cons: "All of the less than good, obvious!"
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."

Pros: "Overall KLM experience is good"

Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."
Pros: "Smooth and faster than expected trip. I felt free to get up and walk around on this long flight. Food was good. I sat in seat with extra leg room for the first time and it was worth it"
Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"
Pros: "Last year I flew Lufthansa which was my worst experience flying ever. I thought the new standard was so low I would never fly to Europe again. I had heard KLM was good but I felt this was as good as could be expected actually much better. The food was even good."

Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."
Pros: "We are guessing they either overbooked or they didn't have sufficient passengers on a Tuesday afternoon who's final stop was Glasgow. They rebooked him for 1200 the next day. DFW to MN, St Paul to Schipole, Amsterdam to final destination, Glasgow. So he ends up having to pay for another Lyft back to our apartment in Dallas, then another additional one for the 12 noon flight the next morning. If he didn't have family living in Dallas, he would've incurred a hotel fee too."
Cons: "He was bumped to the next day due to his flight being cancelled. Then re-booked the next day, with an additional layover. Then due to a 32 minute layover that left 3 minutes sooner..."
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""

Cons: "Stating it’s a train from the beginning and not having to go from one train station to another."
Pros: "The crew was OK, but nothing special."
Cons: "Air France should not sell tickets for which the connection flights are almost impossible to catch. My luggage was not transferred to my connecting flight. I had to run to catch the flight to Bucharest. At CDC there were only two custom officers for checking passport of EU citizens, on a Saturday morning with hundreds and hundreds incoming travelers. On top of it, one female officer was rude. Typical french :("

Cons: "Plane is old and entertainment facilities are no longer appropriate"
Cons: "Crew forced me to change my upgraded comfort seat to accommodate a 12 year old who they knew was going to be airsick. So I spent the first half of the flight next to a vomiting girl.

Cons: "Some of the shows and movies were a bit 'trashy'. Long flight. I was in the middle seat next to an inattentive octanegarian who was nice but kept calling the flight crew to fix her mess up of the video system. No air controls on this plane - so it was overly warm. 10 hours of overly warm makes for a stinky passenger. Oof."
Pros: "More experienced, professional crew, better food and service."

Cons: "Staff just walked away while we were in line, the rudeness and mean attitude, they blamed us for being too late after ignoring us and made us late, they didn't offer an alternative flight until we asked.

Cons: "The 3 hours delay"
Pros: "Good cabin, but very conjugated :|"
Cons: "Too much of hassle checking in as the airlines partners with a couple of other airlines like Jet Airways, WestJet & Aircanada. The food was just okay and the cabin crew refused to serve extra butter. When you are serving extra bread, make sure you serve the butter as well. How could someone eat bread by itself?"
