Cons: "The TV wasn't working and the crew I asked for help didn't do anything about it"

Cons: "The TV wasn't working and the crew I asked for help didn't do anything about it"
Pros: "The in-flight experience was fine."
Cons: "The crew at check-in & at boarding checked me in to fly to Tel-Aviv (transiting at Istanbul) without any comment on visa or passport at Washington D.C. In Istanbul, I was not allowed to board on the flight to Tel-Aviv. I was not allowed to stay in Istanbul. Crew (Erin Uler) who stopped me from boarding the flight said he would help, but disappeared. Othes kept sending me back and forth between transfer desk and sales desk with inconsistent advice every time. I had no way out, so decided I will fly to the closest European country. This was after I had been back and forth for 7 hours. I had to pay full for flight to Greece. I asked to be sent back to D.C. they could not even work that out. I have a return ticket to fly back to Washington D.C. with Turkish Airline on 1 Jan and they said they will need to re-ticket my paid return flight as well. Turkish airline crew did not would not help me fix my return flight back to D.C. They have asked me to contact the agent ( Kayak). Now I am stuck in Athens, a country I have never visited nor planned to. My tours & accommodation, all paid for in Israel, I have lost. I had a tour fully paid in Israel. I have no ticket to return back to D.C. even though I paid for ticket with cancellation insurance when I bought the ticket. The advice between Turkish crew who checked my passport (official) while I was flying out of D.C. vs the Turkish crew who stopped me from boarding was inconsistent. If I had been stopped in D.C. I wouldn't have had to face the events that followed. Now I have lost my tours, hotel in Israel. I had to pay extra for flight to Athens and I am paying for hotel and sundry in Athens while waiting for flight out. Turkish crew at Istanbul were not only unhelpful but rude and inconsistent. While I was waiting for 8 hours for a firm information, shouting matches between Turkish crew and customers went on at least a dozen times. Inconsistent information from Turkish staff has led me to be currently stuck in Athens. I am waiting for a way back to D.C. There should be a rule that fines an airline if they board people without accurate visa papers and they fail to check it. There should also be a fine to the airline if they stop people from boarding at a transit airport leaving passanger stranded with nowhere to go or return."

Pros: "The cabin crew was very pleasant and the service was great. Food was well prepared and served quickly."
Cons: "Was a short flight so there wasn’t anything that made it unpleasant"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked. We where forced to take another flight 6 hours later and in returen we where promised a 250 euro compensation and a 5 stats hotel to wait in.

Pros: "Smooth flight, comfortable seats, crew was very catering and kind"

Pros: "This flight had good leg room. The entertainment appeared to be excellent--however I did not use it due to the serious delay and the fact we were flying from 3:00 to 5:00 AM..."
Cons: "Boarding/takeoff on this flight was additionally delayed over an hour. As above, on this leg of the return flight, we didn't receive the meals we initially ordered."
Pros: "The Crew!!!"
Cons: "the fact that in my flight from turkey back to isreal the boarding guy added in hand written something that look like curse i got pic.... and was not nice ... dont know if it was because of the late time or hes mind was disturbed ... you dont act like this ... i do not know what he add but i dont think its a bless"
Cons: "to hot, very hot!!!"

Pros: "comfort"
Pros: "The crew on the flight were very nice"
Cons: "As our first flight got delayed, me and 28 other pallengers flying to israel told the airline agents that we would miss our connection flightfrom turkey to israel. The supervisor assured us that we have nothing to worry about, as the second plane would wait as we are many passengers.however when we landed in turkey the connection flight had already left without us. When trying to speak to turkish airline representatives about getting a new flight, they were super UNhelpful, we waited in very long lines and were required so go to a few different parts of the airport to get a new ticket, a process that was not friendly at all and very frustrating. After about 2 hours of waiting on lines, i got a flight that required me to wait 7 hours in the airport and measley voucher for a very small fast food meal. When i asked to be admitted to the lounge (as i waited 7 hours in the airport due to the airlines mistake), they did not agree to grant me access. When i asked to at least get the wifi code from the lounge so i can tell my familly that i am stuck on turkey, this was also rejected. While waiting in the airport, i spoke to many other people on other flights who had been stuck in the airport under very simillar circumstances, some even worse than mine. I also have many friends who have experiences simillar experiences with turkish airlines. If you are looking for a reliable flight, that will get you to your destination on time and will help you out when a problem occurs, Turkish airlines is deffinetelly NOT the flight for you. I personally will never fly with them again after the way i was treated."
Pros: "Aside from the crew and their patience, nothing"
Cons: "Everything aside from the crew"
Pros: "Onboard service was good. Ben Gurion airport services were excellent."
Cons: "Departure was late by an hour which made me miss my connection. Because of this: I had to purchase a visa @$70 US Airport service in Istanbul was very bad. It took 2 hours before anyone would actually help me to organize my next flight to Milan. By the time I arrived in Milan, my family had left worried sick not knowing what happened to me. I then had to find a bus to take me to Lugano, another 25 Euros, and not to mention all the stress to me and my family. I then decided not to put myself through the same situation on my way back to Tel Aviv and purchased new ticket with another Airline company. Overall, the whole experience was a nightmare."
Pros: "Excellent and cooperative staff. It was a smooth flight."
Pros: "The service, food, efficiency"
Cons: "It seemed that the handling and leaving the plane took very long, probably due to airport services"
Cons: "The fact the airline didn't compensate us even though we missed our connection flight"
Cons: "There is no free Wi Fi on Ataturk airport. They claim 2 hours, but it doesn't support Croatian 385 country access nr."

I love KLM, its very spacious and clean and the landing is always very soft. Great Airline!

Great flight Will go again!

Cons: "the connecting times for klm seem to be very close - if your running late to start - you may not make your next one -"

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: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"

Pros: "The flight arrived a few minutes early."

Cons: "Check in at Berlin was extremly slow. Staff was very unprofessional and not very friendly."
Pros: "Restrooms clean, decent food and drink, nice cabin crew."

Cons: "KLM lost my luggage during the layover. My luggage didn't arrive even after the next flight to Prague. Customer service wouldn't give me any idea what flight my luggage would arrive on, nor would they tell me what time my luggage might be delivered to me."
Pros: "Travel on Crostian Airlines did not pappen. KLM flight to Munich was cancelled and I was rescheduled on Air Setbia to Belgrade, the Split."
Cons: "That it didn’t happen."
Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."
Pros: "Nice to have a wrap for the snack."
Cons: "Would have preferred boarding by row - back of the flight first so would have been more organized."
Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."
Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"
Cons: "Crowded seating, wake-up for breakfast service two hours before arrival"
Pros: "I personally do not appreciate the food on this leg of the journey Food Ams to Dxb is GOOD!!"

Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"
Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."
Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"

Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"
Pros: "Service of the staff was great"
Cons: "Turbulence, with all our technology we still cannot avoid this?"
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "Seat"
Cons: "Terrible moslem food, too much lentil with tasteless chicken"
Cons: "Air France’s apathy towards its customers is shocking. Traveling with three children , our flight was delayed by 3hrs resulting us arriving in Paris after 1AM. With the airport shuttle(CDVAL) to our airport hotel closed, they offered no assistance despite of my request. Simply asked us to take a taxi (when all taxi stands are abandoned at 2AM). Beware if traveling with family."
Cons: "I was catching a flight in Paris to Aberdeen after arriving from Malaga. The time between flights was not enough 55 mins as the gate closed 20 mins before departure and it takes at least 15 minutes from arrival to taxi to the terminal and then get off the plane. I had to change from terminal F to E which was well sign posted but I only made it with 4 minutes to spare"
Cons: "I was almost forced to stow my luggage in the hold despite me telling the check-in people tjat I had my meds and cpap in the carryon. I spoke to multiple people. Not sensitive."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Nice and attentive crew."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable in premier economy."
Cons: "New variety of food"
Cons: "No leg room at all, cant believe those seats met legal standard. The plane smelled, boarding was a nightmare because too many people had big bags. An announcement had been madd that vags would be collected, but obviously were not."
Cons: "the tray was broken and the water felt all over. the flight was 1 hr delayed. All of us stood the 1 hr waiting to know what's next. We could sit."
Pros: "Check in agent extremely helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Not boarding on tarmac via bus. Sandwich - tartar sauce and “chicken” - with two quarter sized pieces of meat was terrible."
Pros: "Boarding procedures and crew were top. Wines and beverages excellent and even in super economy water was served several times"
Cons: "The food could have been much better, should consider doing everything organic. As it was, the chicken in the meal was awful, the dessert terrible. The rice in the salad hard, almost uncooked. The only good quality food was the bread and the cheese"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was excellent"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and always came around with water."
Cons: "The “vegetarian” option was tuna which isn’t vegetarian and there was no vegetarian snack. With the hundreds of dietary and religious food restrictions you would think having a vegetarian option would be much more attainable.. They also didn’t make an announcement about our flight being late."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Nice meal service and drink service throughout. Great choice of entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was delayed 4 hours with no explanation"
Cons: "Asked for wheel chair assistance and was not met in Paris. Had difficulty and barely made my flight. A gentleman who worked at airport assisted me"

Pros: "The crew were polite and friendly"
Cons: "Everything was incredibly poor. Flight was delayed, entertainment was outdated and the airport staff were rude."
Pros: "Crew was nice, too short of a flight to figure out more"
Cons: "no chance to try. Can’t pick a special meal in short term flights and snacks are not vegan"
Pros: "Staff was so helpful and attentive to our needs.Providing service with a smile."
Pros: "Not much expected as it was a budget trip."
Cons: "Poor timing in between connections, barely made in time to my first connection being the last person to board"
Pros: "Good size plane. It didn’t end up being full so there was plenty of room to move around. Quick flight and easy."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Cons: "I am not sure why this happened, but our daughter, travelling away from home for the first time, was targeted at every step of her journey. From the terminal in DCA to Cincinnati, to CDG. Delta/Air France clearly singled her out. i am outraged! I have traveled many, many times and have sent hundreds of students on nearly the same trip -- and none have had as rough a time as she had. They will be hearing from me."
Pros: "Absolutely everything perfect."
Cons: "Through my own fault I ordered a different seat instead of window seat. :)"
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "We were transported to the plane which was quite some distance to the plane via bus after climbing down steep stairs from the departure gate area. Then we had to climb steep steps in extremely hot weather. We were then delayed for a hour in the plane in very hot conditions as the plane had its air conditioning off and the ground air conditioning was not put on. We were swearing in the heat for an hour!! We arrived at our destination and hour and half late!!"
Cons: "We paid for Business Class from JFK to TLV. The flight to Tel Aviv was in a small plane with 3 across seats that hardly reclined. We are most unhappy and will complain to American Express Platinum Card."
Cons: "Please see comments above about this flight."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and always gave the feeling that they want the customers to feel comfortable and enjoy the flight. One of the crew members even offered me to move to an emergency exit seat (without me asking to move) because I am tall. Amazing!"
Cons: "Screen broke half way through flight. Food was poor"
Pros: "Food and service was good and price was acceptable"
Cons: "Very long route"
Pros: "Priority boarding with kids"
Cons: "Nothing special just like easyJet ir Rayanair"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Pros: "Only the cabin crew was good."
Cons: "It was the worst flight that I ever had, the seats are extremely uncomfortable, no TV, the food was terrible."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Very cramped. Poor leg room also with.metal bars under seats that further. Limited foot room. Terrible options in movies."
Cons: "Initially the flight from Lima was delayed for almost 1:30 and then we lost this connection then Airfrance rebooking to SAS they tell us to take all our luggage’s and check in again it’s was awful and really bad from then walk and spend time we suppose to be quite at home ... the worst was in SAS have ano system and for 1.5 kilos extras you might pay 33€ so after long day and wait, running everywhere with all my staff I see to eat a 11€ menu at the airport with not more explanation from Airfrance .. really bad and worst services.."
Pros: "Nice crew, free snacks"
Cons: "For taller people flying economy sucks . The seats are always to small"
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?"
Cons: "Not checking my carry on weight at check in then letting me walk all the way to security to then check my bag and tell me to go back to check in then the counter is closed and they tell me it's too late and that I need to get ride of my things so that my bag is under weight and barely making the flight"
Pros: "The crew is great, with their typical slightly humourous and casual French attitude. Great collection of international quality movies."
Cons: "Average and disappointing sitting space. The vegan lacto-ovo meal is disappointing."
Pros: "No issues, quick trip, friendly staff, comfortable ride..."
Pros: "Flight went smoothly"
Cons: "Flight left late The seats are small and crowded There are no entertainment options"
Pros: "Airplane staff were good"
Pros: "Traveled fron SFO to CDG on AF in business class on an A 380. Lounge in SFO was smallish and not many choices in the food bar. Boarding was smooth. my second ride on A 380 in business and this trip reminded me quickly why I did not care for the A 380 on my previous trip. It is a huge plane with a huge sized business class which makes the cost less worth it compared to a Boeing. The crew were extremely helpful and caring. The food was acceptable. The seats on the plane were not comfortable in the lying position. Took a cab to our hotel in Paris (1st Arr) for a flat 50 euros. No meters."
Cons: "Arriving in CDG and facing a slow immigration with the passengers of this huge plane. I didn't care for the baggage delivery system. We were waiting for an hour only to realize that the arrival port for our luggage was changed."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. Plus I didn't get my baggage at the end."
Cons: "Very warm and stiffy air on board. Need change light. Very sad neon. Probably Boing style."
Pros: "movies were great, watched a lot of them food, while nothing to write home about, was at least tasty and not inedible the staff was great, friendly, welcoming, hard working loved that we could have wine and snacks"
Cons: "we had paid for the exit row and had a luxurious amount of room. But when we tried to sleep, our fellow passengers came and stood at our feet and talked so loudly that we could not possibly sleep. They stayed there for more than an hour. Would have loved for the staff to maybe ask them to tone it down, if not move."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No entertainment or usb plugsto charge."
Pros: "Good food. Although no Cappucino as in AF from Sanfransisco to Paris."
Cons: "No entertainment at al. Specifically, I could not lean my seat b/c of a mom with a baby behind me..."

Stop using the 737MAX. It's 100% safe but very uncomfortable.

Cons: "The flight was long enough that some entertainment, even just the ability to plug in my own device to charge and use would have made the flight better."
Pros: "That we landed safely"
Cons: "Flying with other company"
Pros: "Quick flight, comfortable seats"
Cons: "Very, very stressful transfer"
Cons: "Maybe boarding... Sharing the gate with another flight at almost at the same time is a little an issue"
Cons: "flight was delayed 4 hours"
Cons: "deley"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "The check-in opened a bit late from Israel and I did not plan on it at all but I look at what I had better things so I think there were a lot of good things here so I do not look at check-in"
Cons: "Better punctuality"
Cons: "Boarding was late, "snack" was a small wafer. Flight crew hid behind a curtain for most of the flight."
Cons: "The crew was rude."
Cons: "On my former flight I have mistakenly left in the aircraft ( flight 156 to Warsaw) a light blue purse , I have sent 2 inquiries to LOT , with no response"
Pros: "all was ok as its a little one so very crouded no place to move but in general ok thank you very much"
Cons: "will recomend and would like to travel again with lot hope thatcwill have additional shop of duty free for shopping closes . toys.and more good ice creem thank you very much"
Pros: "They gave decent food and some decent movies and ok songs to listen too."
Cons: "Not enough good movies to watch. Perhaps put on some Spanish movies and music along with more variety Polish and Russian movies and music. I was stuck in middle of two old people that kept farting a lot."
Cons: "They lost my laguage."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Employers are rude, food is not eatable seats are not comfortable ..."
Pros: "Modern new plane, efficient plane crew"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding, seats have very little support, no food or entertainment"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Change gate"
Pros: "The multilingual, very professional crew is one of the best we've traveled with. All of them are willing to help, accommodate, which was extremely important for us due to my husband's medical issues. Much obliged."
Cons: "late departure"
Pros: "The crew was polite and boarded quite on time The airplane was clean We landed early"
Cons: "Since this was not a low cost flight and not a cheap ticket, I did not understand why there was no food served and no beverages a part of the basic (water/tea/coffee) without additional pay. I did not get value for the money I paid. The seating was very crowded."
Pros: "The gate crew was polite and communicative when asked what was happening with the delays. The flight itself was uneventful."
Cons: "There was no real food except for purchase, and the flight attendants went so quickly through the aisles I couldn't even catch their attention. The flight was 45 minutes late and the departure kept creeping up in 10 minute increments before it finally just said "delayed. I would have liked entertainment on the flight. I was in a row with 3 seats filled and then there were other rows completely empty. So the seat selection was not accurate at all."
Pros: "LOT does great with boarding, food, and entertainment. The food is very tasty and plentiful. The boarding process is smooth and the people are very nice. And the selection of movies and TV is very broad, and the equipment works well."
Cons: "The crew on the plane are short with passengers and don't seem to go out of their way to make passengers comfortable. This lack of effort stands out very much in the background of super-uncomfortable seats on Dreamliners. There is relatively much less space available for passengers between rows and between seats themselves. It makes long flights exceptionally painful, especially for people who are not extra small or young. I have gotten to the point that I choose to fly different airlines even if that means a bit more money and an extra stop because I cannot handle 8 or 9 hours on the Dreamliners, especially when the flights are full."
Pros: "יעעכגידכידכגעגכ ה בעבנידגנ הכ נגכאעקרכב כברנקרכ בקרנרא רא"
Cons: "כגיכגכגע ראמר א מעכרה רא מראמארמ ררא ררע רא 'ע ער ר'ע"
Cons: "In Warsaw they took us by bus in a snow storm in freezing cold. They left us standing on an open bus in minus temperatures for 30 minutes instead of sending a few buses to take us to the plane."
Cons: "My luggage didn’t arrive. Plane left with a delay."
Pros: "On time... great service.... will use it again!"
Cons: "Good food, great staff, pleasent flight"
Pros: "Overall the flight was pleasant - the Bombardier is a great plane - there was enough leg room and space. I had a lovely view of the Tatra mountains. Captain made a couple of announcements and kept us informed of flight time, progress and so on. No complaints at all."
Pros: "Costs like regular flight feels like low cost"
Cons: "I don't like to seat by the window, and I couldn't change it by on line..."
Pros: "it was a short flight"
Pros: "Crew was fine."
Cons: "Not a comfortable seat, no food and no entertainment."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "On warsaw to tel aviv for 3 1/2 hours no movie, music, complementary food or snack."
Cons: "None efficiante boarding resulted in delay"
Pros: "Seats were full recline and very comfortable. Nice large windows."
Cons: "Boarding was a zoo and ground crew kept delaying boarding. Inflight entertainment is bad. Only about 20 movies. Make other plans. Food non existent. Headsets - worse than us domestic coach."
Cons: "very inconviniebt seats"
Pros: "Not 1 thing !!! Bad.bad.bad"
Cons: "The legs room, no free meal, on the flight from warsaw to tel aviv. 1 hour late on departure from warsaw to tel aviv"
Pros: "The crew was nice, and the pillows was OK."
Cons: "All the rest, including the wait for the airport bus, and the noise at the flight"
Cons: "Shitty service on board"
Pros: "Crew nice, polite"
Cons: "Fly time allways not on written agreed"
Pros: "Nothing (except the safe landing)"
Cons: "The boarding process was a nightmare. The plane was small and cramped. Business class seats were narrower and more uncomfortable than most coach seats. Crew was pleasant and helpful but this route is just awful. Avoid if at all possible."
Cons: "no food was served, only water. no entertainment was offered."
Pros: "Nice and soft landing."
Cons: "At check in they refused to a small hand bag claiming that only one suitcase per passenger is allowed. The seats are not reclining."
Pros: "Getting iff"
Cons: "Overcrowded Poorly organized"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour - boarding was delayed 5 minutes at a time so you needed to stay by the gate."
Pros: "food prices, all on time"
Cons: "entertainment"
Cons: "the flight delayed 2 hours/ the seats are horrible/ is only 1 toilet for all the peaple/"
Cons: "You sold me no lagge ticket, and than charged extra"
Pros: "The food!"
Cons: "The layover but that's not in your control so no worries!"
Cons: "The seats are squeezed, no space for normal legs. you have to wait a long time for a glass of water. I AM NOT FLYING WITH THEM ANY MORE"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Didn’t get to pick seats"
Pros: "The boarding was smooth and quick, flight arrived early. Service onboard was very good"
Pros: "New airbus 350-390 are worst than older planes. Economic class space is even smaller now, no storage space for the last few rows"
Cons: "Last 3-5 central rows in economy class have no space for carryons. On top of that, at arrival we realized they have lost our bagage, all 6, so we’re left with carryons. This may be our very last trip with Lufthansa."
Cons: "There was no coffee or tea available on the flight"
Pros: "Great staff!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Quick flight. Dlient Service in check-in was excellent, she went the extra mile to change my return flight to a more reasonable time."
Cons: "No snacks unless you are willing to pay more than 10 dollars lol"
Pros: "On time and pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then without notice back on schedule and the we boarded and sat on the tarmac for an hour. Why board us if we can’t leave?"
Pros: "Breakfast was excellent"
Cons: "TV screen were too dark"
Cons: "My baggage did not make the flight. It took 3 days to return it to me"
Pros: "Once boarded, the crew was pleasant and very helpful. It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "Air Canada check-in at YOW was overwhelmed. There were not enough agents to handle the amount of passengers or flights they had going out. I waited 50 minutes in a check-in line and almost missed my flight. Passengers in front and behind me had the same experience. Air Canada really needs to examine their operations at YOW and manage the situation better."
Pros: "Got there with minimal delays"
Cons: "Inattentive staff, broken tray table, seats not cleaned between flight ( covered in food crumbs), small seats"
Pros: "MIGHT give me a refund, and not WILL give me a refund"
Cons: "Service personnel at Air Canada were very helpful and re-booked me several times and when none of those flights left, they said they would refer me to refund department."
Pros: "Boarding was excellent, most of the staff except one was excellent. The flight was smooth. Got hooked on a new series that I started watching on the plane."
Cons: "The wait time between flights on the way home was brutal but you expect that if you are flying on points. What made it worse was that I had to leave the secure area and collect my bags then wait 8 hours in the airport only to go through security again. On top of that trying to get my baggage tag there was a female agent that should have retired 100 years ago directing people like it was our fault she still had to work. If you can't be nice you should not be in customer service."
Pros: "crew was very helpful polite nice and welcoming"
Cons: "food was not fresh, hot meal was pretty terrible in both 2 flights"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours"
Pros: "Staff were incredibly kind, courteous, and knowledgeable. I need wheelchair assistance and they handled that beautifully, asking thoughtful questions about my needs and adapting their plans to my answers. They also helped me with stowing my carry-on since I would have struggled alone."
Cons: "Unfortunately, through no fault of the flight crew or gate crew, we got one of the few remaining planes in the fleet that are so old that they can't fit a full carry-on bag in the overhead bins or under the seats. Larger carry-on items had to be checked through to final destination, which made a lot of passengers upset -- either because they were business people who needed to be able to work on the flight, or they had important baby gear in there that they would need before that, or they were traveling far away using multiple airlines and were rightly worried about lost luggage."
Pros: "Excellent fight.... comfortable and easy..."
Cons: "Crew where a bit slow... and the use of 4! Languages for announcement was annoying..."
Pros: "The deleted meals request could not be remedied even with greater than four hours notice of THEIR mistake. No proper meals for a 15 Hour flight and no compensation."
Cons: "Get it right or make it right."
Pros: "A few turbulents just before landing but great flight crew."
Pros: "Incredible plane!!"
Cons: "Bathrooms and seats need to be longer!"
Pros: "I love that I had a direct flight for my destination, from TLV to Pearson Int'l, at a decent price. This is usually hard to come by. The in flight entertainment options are very good. The online check-in process worked very well."
Cons: "The service on my original TLV-Pearson Flight (Dec 23rd am) was not great. The staff sat in the back gossiping the entire time and looked offended every time I came to ask a question or ask for something - they would get silent and just sit there, like I was interrupting an important conversation and so I even offered to get my own stuff. Ridiculous! What happened to customer service? The food is HORRIBLE! Worst food I have ever had on a flight, and I flew to 8 countries this last year, so that says a lot. I'd recommend only eating food you bring, or just starving yourself."
Pros: "Rouge flights are not comfortable no room for your legs and on a four and half flight very uncomfortable. Soft drinks are free but not even a bag of nuts."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My seat partner had a dog with her. I like dogs but it was more of a irritant and distraction, didn't seem that nice for the dog either. What happened to the pretzel/nut snacks?"
Pros: "The flight crew went advice and beyond to help look after our two kids (ages 2 and 4). It was a full flight but they were the only children on board."
Cons: "Baggage fees and leg room."
Cons: "Audio jack for entertainment weren't working."
Cons: "Crew didn't come around much for most of flight, except for duty free - couldn't get water, or hot water for tea for a long time"
Pros: "Airlines keep the cabin too cold. On the domestic of the travel leg blankets were for additional pay which is crazy - I understand about meals, but blankets are required only because the conditions offered by the airline are uncomfortable. One luggage was lost, but that is now almost part of travel."
Cons: "Even though I reconfirmed my kosher food, it was not on the plane."
Pros: "Good food and entitemint"
Pros: "Staff was courteous and friendly. Check-in was quick and painless, despite the mobile boarding pass not working properly."
Cons: "Did not ear food or use the in-flight entertainment. Seats are TINY! As a person with very broad shoulders, I found myself literally wedged into a corner as to not bump the person next to me. These planes should not be 3 seater when they are designed for two."
Pros: "Staff was at least friendly"
Cons: "For a 5+ hour flight only beverages were offered - anything else (such as a snack or small meal) had to be purchased. Very cheap service IMO. The selection of entertainment (movies/tv shows) was exceptionally limited and out of date. Their way of boarding the plane (via zone) is very backwards as families with children weren't asked to board until half way through the plane loading (unless those families had already paid for the more expensive zone upgrades). Most airlines let them load first to give them extra time. My checked bag was 1.2kg over the limit so I had to open the bag and switch 1.2kg of clothing into my carry on in front of the rest of those checking in. What an embarrassment and such foolery. All in all Westjet does a better job for trips across Canada. Will not be trying Air Canada again."
Cons: "The crew was fine but not overly friendly or helpful. They got the job done. I know that your coach seats are fairly standard in the industry. I just find the leg room to be too tight for a long distance flight."
Cons: "Squeezed in like sardines. Nickled and dimed at every turn."
Pros: "They our sits for a better one because of my 6 year old son."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Air Canada as well as WestJet charge exuberant amounts for local flights. They offer services and leg room of a budget airline while charging prices at the top range of a regular airline. Lack of proper competition in Canada allows Air Canada and WestJet to charge whatever they want since there are no other real options"
Pros: "Nothin"
Cons: "IFE and food were awful. Space was cramped, lights left on for a night flight. AirCanada headphone rules are just dumb."
Pros: "The boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Seats weren't comfortable even with an empty seat beside me. Vegetarian meal was not good at all. The general pancake option was gone before it even got to where I was sitting and the omelette was old school flights.. Which in this case was really bad."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal was awful"
Cons: "Some crew members were not always kind."
Pros: "Good service, very attentive. Breakfast needs improvement"
Cons: "The middle seat is horrible, no room to even bend over to reach my bag which was at my feet. Very uncomfortable and no room to put the elbows because the other two seats take the elbow rests . Make it a double one or something because I couldn't even fall asleep for a second plus I got a back ache throughout the"
Cons: "I was seated in the middle of the plane right by the bathroom in the middle seat, the lady to the right had the same idea that these seats were very bad cause they don't have much space as the others also it's right next to the bathroom,, were you get to enjoy the noise from the bathroom door to flushing not include the smell,,, I wonder why you guy charge more for seats with space and you don't give discount for the worst seats in the plane,,, The lady complained and they changed here seat I had to stay there and not be able to sleep for more than 5 mints, from the reasons that I said before,,, by far the worst experience,"
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient."
Pros: "787 atmospherics good - humidity, etc Decent price for this flight"
Cons: "Economy Cabin one of the most uncomfortable. Attendants were angry, short and disgruntled the entire flight."
Pros: "The flight was one of the more uncomfortable flights I've taken across the Atlantic, and I fly multiple times per year. The flight attendents were nasty, sarcastic, and unkind. I heard them bickering between themselves throughout the flight, which was very uncomfortable to hear as a passenger. The kosher food was barely edible. The seats were small and uncomfortable. I am under 5'5" and on the small side, and I could barely fit in my seat. I will think twice before flying Air Canada again, and I will tell other people about my experience."
Cons: "No variety in menu for a long time (business class)"
Cons: "My suitcase did not arrive with me."
Pros: "Boarding procedure for disabled was handled well. Wheelchair attendenents courteous."
Cons: "Seating much to dense. Bulkhead seating should be available on need basis only at no extra charge. Food was very mediocre and had a distinct processed flavor and consistency."
