Cons: "Because my husband and I couldn't complete the online check in, we ended up sitting on different ends of the plane."
Pros: "Ladies worked hard"
Cons: "I now understand how the chicken and live stock must feel in their cages and stalls. Perhaps the CEO and management staff must be made to take the same flights in the same conditions in so called Economy class. So much greed! Hoping for the day, Air travel becomes obsolete."
Pros: "Overall, wonderful! Appreciate that they started boarding early and that we left right on time, if not a little earlier. Was very comfortable and excellent flight. Thank you so much! Very pleasant experience."

Pros: "I have never been in a flight where a handful of small children were able to make so much noise. There was one 4 year old that talked so loud for ten hours that not even my headphones could drown him out. Not once did any of the parents tell these kids to use their inside voice"
Pros: "Service, atmosphere"
Pros: "The relaxed environment and the crew are amazing"
Cons: "There is always some passengers that drink a bit more than they should but.... there is nothing we can do with it"
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."
Pros: "The flight was ok. We had very little lay over time which meant. We had to run across the airport to get to our flight. This also meant that some luggage got left behind. It was frustrating but atleast the airline ensured that it was delivered in one piece to our home addresses. Give them a plus for that"
Cons: "Left behind luggage Short layover"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient."
Cons: "There were no vegetarian or vegan food options. The flight was crowded and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."
Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"
Pros: "I liked the options for entertainment and comfort."
Cons: "Crew and Boarding crew were not at all respectful, they were very rude."
Pros: "Got a promotional upgrade and was incredibly impressed ! Flying will never be the same !"
Cons: "The fact that my next flight is going to be economy"
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No"
Cons: "Emirates should have contacted me about my missing bag which they didn't contact me yet. Not sure where my bag is as of now"
Pros: "Timeliness, behavior of crew. Entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Food quality, seat sizes, comfort of the seats is not good. There were belligerent passengers that kept on drinking alcohol on the flight and even lit up a cigarette in the restroom. The persons involved should have been arrested for causing a disturbance on the flight."
Pros: "Food was really good for airplane food."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline at all in a 14+ hour flight. Didn't see the flight crew often."
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Cons: "THe Entertainment system did not work. which meant no tv, info or seat adjustment. this was in First Class. horrible"
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Pros: "Flight still arrived reasonably on time despite being delayed. Service is excellent!"

Missed our connection and offered little to no help. Never again.

Cons: "Staff was very friendly, courteous and helpful."
Pros: "Crew"
Pros: "vegan sweeties for the kids, so nice as my daughter usually has to say no. Also swiss chocolate - so good! Our veggie meals booked hadn't gone through on the system but we were found some they had anyway - wasn't very nice though."
Cons: "Boarding was late and line was very lonf"
Pros: "Crew was great, seating comfortable."
Pros: "Officers in the airport are rude and offensive, racial discrimination."
Cons: "Change their employees, arrogant, not professional"
Cons: "seat comfort"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "Delicious Easter eggs Beautiful interior design of cabin and seats Roomy"
Pros: "Cabin cleanliness isgood"
Cons: "Food is bad"
Pros: "They had many snacks and meals. And the meals were very good. Staff was very friendly."
Cons: "Seating is very uncomfortable and small. Really limited on space if seat is reclined in front of you."
Pros: "On time! Courteous. Free meal! Even on flight less than 2 hours!"
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very understanding."
Cons: "I requested a basinet for my infant daughter and I paid a total of $98.93 extra, but on the plane they told me they didn't know anything about that and they didn't have any basinet. I called Swiss as soon as I landed, and I've told my request was sent but it was never confirmed. They also told me they will send me an email when the basinet for the return flight is confirmed. At this point, I'm not even sure what I paid the $98.93 for."
Pros: "Unexpected food/snacks that were provided.Good crew and the plane was on time."
Cons: "Poor boarding process. Plane change caused poor seat selection after they changed the seats that we paid extra for. Very little leg room for an overseas flight."
Cons: "Because we missed our connection on our incoming flight, due to a delay leaving Newark by Swiss, Swiss cancelled our returning flights. So when we got to the airport on our return day, we were not booked on any flights. We were required to stay overnight and take a United flight home. Will avoid Swiss in the future."
Pros: "The food wasn’t bad"
Cons: "Business seats suck"
Pros: "Nice breakfast treat and chocolate is always appreciated"
Cons: "Not a specific complaint about this flight but boarding in general is not smooth No online check-in that I could find."
Pros: "Food.confort.pillows."
Pros: "There was a very long line at the check in counter on the way back. Many people were nervous about missing their flights. Apparently the counter computers were out of order and they only had 2 stations to support the passengers at a very busy time. Other than that, everything was smooth and pleasurable."
Pros: "Swiss service relayable"
Cons: "This flight was missed due to the delay of the first flight."
Cons: "Mackenzie Gray/ My flight was cancelled due to bad weather conditions unfortunately. I'm upset that I never received my initinerary for my substitute flight! I tried online and calling the # that was provided no results. I managed to get thru to someone and they told me they would send the info to my email but they never did."
Pros: "Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and the cabin was clean and comfortable. My flight from jfk to Geneva (then Zurich) was cancelled due to weather in Geneva (Swiss 23) so I got upgraded to a delta flight to Brussels then to Zurich Comfort+ !!! Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight from Zurich to Johannesburg: Swiss 288 (airbus a340-300) Sat in the last row of the Swiss air flight, economy, which was okay but our whole row video enternatinment system didn’t work. You’d pick a movie and it wouldn’t play. The games, camera and flight status animation all worked but not the movies. Air hostess tried resetting , still nothing. But it was a great opportunity to have a lovely conversation with my new German Friend Barbara and read my book! More lactose intolerant alternatives for breakfast which had much (cheese, yogurt, croissant) Other than those two , excellent flight. Thank you Swiss!"
Pros: "Polite cree"
Cons: "Crowded plane, long boarding and waiting to be seated"
Cons: "I bought economy class ticket! (I have a printout ticket as proof!) When I went to the airport i had a VERY UNPLEASANT surprise. I had a 23kg bag. Bording stuart said that my ticket is ECO LIGHT class and I don't have the right to any baggage. Worst thing of all was that the reason of my trip to Paris was my sister's graduation and half of the baggage was my formal wear and other half were presents for my sister! Your lack of transparency ruined one in lifetime special event- MY SISTER'S GRADUATION. I am very glad that you asked me for my opinion because I am using my free time to demand full refund, even tough the damage is much bigger than the cost of the ticket and it's irreplaceable."
Pros: "Was a very quick flight."
Pros: "Swiss is always a tad nicer than the alternatives"
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Delay in BCN for an hour"
Cons: "My seat did not recline and my tv did not work"
Cons: "No priority boarding with my baby,had to complain that a lot of other passengers were going by us(while I was waiting with my baby asleep in her stroller and me being pregnant) so that the crew would let us go through to get in"
Pros: "BEST FLIGHT OF MY LIFE"
Cons: "NOTHING"
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: "Very tight seating in economy for a transcontinental flight"
Pros: "The Swiss airline bit was about an hour late. Weather etc. But such things happen. The flight itself was fine. They even served food and a beer."
Cons: "The queues at Heathrow for passport control were long. The non-EU q was awful. Luckily the tube was running all night on those lines we needed."
Pros: "I had no idea i would be charged for just one check in bag!"
Cons: "I had no idea i would be charged for checked in bag! Scam!"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Terrible seats :-("
Pros: "Great customer service."
Cons: "Breakfast was a strawberry yogurt, orange juice and a croissant. Sugar free options ie. Eggs, rye or whole grain bread are a few examples of sugar free breakfast items that could be provided."
Pros: "Was all great as with other legs...will fly again"
Cons: "Seats seemed smaller but do need more entertainment options."
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "The service , the hospitality and kindness"
Cons: "There was a supposed difficulty with my entry in Europe when I tried to Check into Chicago. I thought that I had to cancel my flight. Swiss air representatives had to do much consultation, which took nearly an hour, while I was standing there the whole time. At the end, I was thanked for my patience and told all should be well and not even given a small upgrade for the distress this caused me. Traveling is disagreeable in general now, and personally, even moreso after this episode."
Pros: "seat too tight"
Cons: "person behind me wouldn't allow my seat to recline and was constantly pushing/kicking my seat. I notified crew, but nothing was done about it."
Pros: "Got upgraded to business class and had the best flight of my life!"
Cons: "Missed my fight, not by my Folt(big accident on highway 80) .. Paid 400$ fee for next connecting flight, but first they told me I have to buy new ticket. My laguage was shipped only to Zurich, but destination was Vienna.. so they didn't let me on connecting flight.. It took another 3hours dealing with people from Swiss airlines(great service"
Pros: "Aircraft was clean and spacious with ample leg room."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Timing of delivery could have been better balanced."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The most racist and unfriendly and uncivilized people ever."
Pros: "Short flight. Not much is expected. 3 stars for no rating, except comfort. Small seats/felt cramped. Not a huge deal since it's a short flight."
Cons: "No negatives or anything that caught me off guard."
Pros: "Plenty of empty seats so it was much more relaxing."
Cons: "Seats are pretty crammed in (per usual) and on this leg of flight there were no overhead air flow things, so I couldn't get any air to blow on me. Prior flight did have them so I guess it depends on which plane design you are on. Air flow would be good on all planes."

Less crowded aircraft

Pros: "Service was fast"
Cons: "Better seats"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Proper communication"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worse experience ever, flight delayed, lost connection, many hours in phone trying to fixed and anyway lost the flight, spent so many time at the airport with the front desk so disappointed"
Cons: "You guys didn't allow me to get in this plane and i missed my flight."
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Cons: "Plane had to divert from Salt-Lake City due to a storm. My son 17 years old traveling alone once in Salt-Lake City should have been given priority for an overnight stay instead of sleeping on an airport bench! Dinner + Breakfast vouchers would also have been nice compared to the 15$ food voucher..."
Pros: "Our flight crew were great. Pilots were great too."
Cons: "I missed my connection due to weather in Minneapolis. Was diverted into Milwaukee, but nope we are diverted to Chicago, but wait no we go to Milwaukee. Deboard into a close gate area. Rest rooms were closed. Then once refueling is done get back on and make Minneapolis at 12:15 am. Connection missed"
Pros: "The on board food was amazing, nothing like I’d ever had on a plane before. I was also pleased with the choices for entertainment."
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable in economy. I could not sleep and there were no air vents. Every time I tried to rest my head on the seat in front of me the screen would turn on and get super hot. I wish there was a cover or something you could turn the screen completely off."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. 12 people had a connecting flight and they brought a shuttle bus. You dont see that kind of service any more 10 stars for that"
Cons: "Super small plane."
Pros: "The overall experience on the flight was quite pleasing. The flight crew created a warm atmosphere on what was a very cold morning. Seating was not the most comfortable but the wasn't unbearable."
Cons: "Delta should have a better food menu for those early flights unless the motive is to encourage everyone to eat an organic and wholesome meal prior to boarding, something we all should be doing."
Cons: "No food on board and we were hungry"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Slow boarding."
Cons: "No charging outlet."
Pros: "I liked the touch screen displays in each headrest. Seats and leg room comfortable"

Pros: "Crew was friendly!"
Cons: "Plane wasn’t clean"
Pros: "The movie selection was good"
Cons: "Instead of a flight from Toronto to Atlanta.. it was a flight from Seattle to Atlanta, and I only had 45 mins to get to boarding because of the last minute flight changes."
Cons: "Customs massively backed up. Somewhat disorganized"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight left 2 hours late. Did not get adequate cabin service. Put in the back in an awful seat."
Pros: "Airline and airport staff were great"
Cons: "There was no time to eat. Nothing other than snacks. The time allotted was *barely* sufficient to get from gate to gate. We were starving when we got to our destination."
Pros: "Delta always tries to do the very best. There were no issues with Delta."
Cons: "I did not like the seat assignment. It seems that when I have booked through Kayak, I get a very bad seat. In this case, it was all the way in the back - next to the toilet. The seats didn't recline, and there was no window - because we were right next to one of the engines. I will use Kayak to price compare on future flights, but I will not book through Kayak. Not sure if this is just a coincidence - but it only happens when booking here."
Pros: "On Time. Nothing else to say,"
Pros: "Friendly, leg room, on time."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "Everything from beginning to end was horrible. They messed up on our seats so I couldn't sit with my parents who are both elderly and need my assistance. The flight attendants were rude (no greeting, no smiles). My TV did not work and my tray for food was dirty."
Pros: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Cons: "Ice weather and flight cancelled, but they waited until the last minute to cancel it."
Pros: "Delta did find us a new route to get us to our final destination after west jet booked on a flight that was already sold out ."
Cons: "We had to add on an extra connecting flight . We had to then fly from Toronto to Detroit then on yo Atlanta ."
Pros: "Flight went off pretty well. On time no complaints."
Cons: "Somewhere somehow you need to know that, although partners, Delta and West Jet do not share computer systems and that they are two completely different airlines. This affects ,sometimes, how luggage is handled especially when you land in another country and you have to manually transfer your own - and nobody tells you. You actually change airlines. Itinerary implies West Jet controls the entire thing. Not the case. Better job economic explaining what to With luggage and that, while itinerant implies 1 airline, they are only partners and should be treated separately."
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Pros: "The flight was pretty empty so my entire row was empty so very comfy and it was the new bigger plane so lots of carry on room too."
Cons: "Nothing...I have no complaints"
Pros: "The crew tried their best. The seats were average. The food ok."
Cons: "The entertainment is non-existent. Wifi wasn't even enabled. Four to five hours without ANY entertainment is totally unacceptable especially with teens and kids!!"
Pros: "Delta flew their way back into my heart this time around"
Cons: "have to wait 2 days for the flight, so i would say that's a pretty objective zero rating."
Pros: "Staff, Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Bring back in flight meals, please"
Pros: "The boarding was very organised and the crew very friendly. The snacks that they offer is great too"
Cons: "They had to change tires before we lelt in Toronto. And we spent more than one hour on the tarmac."
Cons: "Temperature was too cold"
Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Bad"
Cons: "West Jet gave me a "fake" ticket delta would not let me board missed the flight I had to wake up at 3am to catch. This is after I finally made it to my hotel last night at 11:30 pm. This is completely unacceptable. NEVER AGAIN IN MY LIFE WILL I EVER FLY WITH THIS COMPANY!!!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I was unable to check in online without a delta confirmation number and I had booked through west jet. The flight was delayed 40 min so I arrived later and I was removed from the flight. I got through security and customs with plenty of time and managed to get back on the flight. It was all around just annoying."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great! Super friendly and helpful with everything!"
Cons: "I'd love slightly larger snack portions."
Pros: "Staffing was great!"
Cons: "The fact is that it is illegal to pack Sardines at compact as you are packing us on your aluminum cans."

There was a 2hr delay to an 8:40 departure. SUPER irritating. Had chosen an earlier flight so that these kinds of things wouldn't happen. Breakfast was poor a croissant and a yogurt. Not enough for an adult, I've had better on other international flights.

Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Cons: "Boarding was slow but they had increased number of wheelchair clients. Not their fault but was a known so the process could have been started earlier."

Cons: "Service from Toronto to RdU not so good"
Pros: "Ended up flying with air canada after they switched us"
Cons: "Lufthansa switched us three times , and then when we got to the airport in toronto it was air Canada. They found our grandparents tickets but not ours. Ridicule our flight was supposed to be only 1h layover, inatead it’s 6 and we are going to miss all our next travel accommodations."
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Pros: "Air Canada is a great airline too"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful. One of the smoothest flights I’ve taken in a long time"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and basically a free for all rather than by rows( back of the plane first)"
Pros: "Nothing good to say"

Pros: "The flight attendants all were very helpful and seemed to enjoy their jobs"

Cons: "The cabin was very tight and the seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Easy flight and on time"
Pros: "nice and polite crew"
Cons: "no screens/maps with route information no enterteinment unless downloaded on your own devise, I had an Iphone which is too small to watch anything.... seat hardly reclined at all and felt extreemely uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew were friendly, respknisbe and professional, while the food was tasty. We were on time and kept well informed along the way. The movie selection was good and the touch screens were some of the best in terms of image quality and responsiveness I've seen aboard a plane."
Cons: "Space and comfort. Lufthansa is joining too many airlines in figuring out the exact minimal space a human needs to be able to be seems hurtling through the air. This leads to cramped, tight spaces with little to no freedom to shift your body. Because of this limited space, seats can only recline so far and leave one uncomfortable, though that angle is enough to create even less space for the person behind you or for you, when faced with a reclining front neighbor. So, minimal benefit of minimal recline and maximum discomfort caused for that minimal gain."
Pros: "Huge, new plane, lots of helpful crew, personal entertainment screen, chairs laid back more than typical"
Cons: "Window arm rest didn't move up, boarding was crazy because YYZ airport doesn't have the format to hold lots of people, how to board was a bit confusing, and turbulance."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "Our stewardess from Toronto to Germany was the best that I have ever had."
Cons: "Great trip."
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Smelly plane,uncomfortable chairs, AC didn't work properly (hence the smell).No screens, spotty Internet."
Pros: "Professionali customer service. Food and beverage service very good and generous. Love the European hospitality."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "The flight was really on time and the flight crew was just amazing. The overall experience was exceptional. Will recommend this servic to any one who will like to travel"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight attendant was very professional. The flight itself seemed quick and easy, and I believe we landed early despite being delayed for takeoff."
Cons: "I wish the head rests had the "wings" that help keep your head from rolling back and forth. Also I wish we had an option for our snack."
Pros: "My trip was from IAH to FRA by Lufthansa flight"
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "On time, helpful crew, clean"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "Good entertainment options, large bathroom area on a lower level"
Cons: "Food options and space"
Cons: "2 hours late"
Cons: "I will not fly on Air Canada again...Eventhough this is listed as a Lufthansa flight there was nothing Lufthansa about it. Terrible food. Overall miserable"
Pros: "the magazine selection prior to flight, bottle of water in front of each seat and crew were great, the pilot's landing was amazing! The seat in front of me had weird legs that made the room under the seat smaller than other seats around me. So you couldn't fit in the carryon fully under it as you could under the seat diagonally from me, however, this ended up being a huge plus since I could use the legs of this chair in front of me as stepping places to place my feet during flight. Since airline does not provide foot rest, it was great to have this to elevate the feet for a long flight. More considerations should be give to provide footrest or at least these kind of foot elevations."
Cons: "The dinner and breakfast were a bit disappointing, but not bad and not a deal breaker at all since the rest of the flight was wonderful. I noted comfort as ok, but that's applies to all airlines - the seats in economy and no footrest is very uncomfortable, but that's on all economy flights, so no deduction of points there. I do want to note that I needed a boarding pass at the gate and stood in line for quite a while (I was first in line) before I was even acknowledged by a lady who ended up helping me eventually. But she was so cranky! (there were 2 ladies - one busy helping the crew and putting around barrier - she was fine, the other with a head covering (putting this hear just to distinguish the ladies as one was doing a great job)- not sure what she was doing, but she plainly ignored me standing at the desk in front of her, I didn't say anything, just patiently waited until she acknowledged me, and then she printed the boarding pass for me, but she was way to cranky to be in the job that she is in - no need for that kind of attitude."
Pros: "Food, very well organized crew"
Cons: "No leg room, long flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours and resulted in missing FRA - DEL flight. No help at Air Canada with rebooking missed flight."
Pros: "I was seated in an exit row and there were pillows and blankets made available to every passenger."
Cons: "The scheduling of the in flight events made no sense. The cabin was dimmed for take off (logical, given that it was a red-eye). However, once we were at altitude, the lights were put back on to serve dinner. Several people were woken up by this and it took like 1.5 hrs because its a big plane. Also, it was like 9-10pm local time by this point so dinner made no sense! Then the lights were dimmed and people tried to sleep. The lights were turned on 1.5 hrs prior to landing to serve a light breakfast. So, 6.5 hr red-eye turned into about 3.5 hrs of actual sleeping time. I would've preferred to be left alone and given a bigger breakfast."
Pros: "The breakfast, one piece of poundcake, that was the only highlight, and one decent size bathroom."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized, nobody knew what was going on, but the biggest disappointment is there were no movies there are no video screens on the entire plane so unless you bring your own device and have pre-downloaded Air Canada app there are no entertainment options at all! Who ever heard of a transatlantic flight that didn't have a movie? Make sure you download the app so you can at least watch the movies on your tiny screen."
Cons: "They didn't have time to give half the people drinks and we weren't even given water."

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Pros: "Crew was great, on time flight, clean plane."

Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Pros: "Service was great as usual. Food was very good and entertainment options were great so you won't have to be bored throughout the trip."
Pros: "We got to Amsterdam on time"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."

Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy!"
