Pros: "The flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."
Cons: "Overall business class was great, however I didn’t like the placement of the remote at my left shoulder. I hit rabdom buttons a few times and it changed the channels and I would have to re-search for the movie I was watching. Everything else was absolutely perfect."
Cons: "in-flight staff were not polite, pushing past passengers without any word; such a disappointment as I expected much higher standard of service and courtesy. Nothing beats Singapore Airlines."
Pros: "Emirates was top in service, organization, personnel. Planes were clean, staff attentive and personable and wanting to help. Been a long time since service this good and on such long flights. Cabin personnel of multiple nationalities and languages only added to the flight. They even returned my phone mistakenly left on board. Would recommend them to all."

Pros: "Everything except landing"

Pros: "I like the flight route"
Cons: "This is my fourth time booking Emirates for my route through kayak. The route is longer but I choose it for on-board Internet for work emails. Generally, they have on-board WiFi Internet, however for my return route of 21 hours both flights had no wifi which was disappointing. This is unprofessional because if you are planning on having WiFi to respond to work emails and it is not available once you are already in the air there is nothing you could do but get stuck. Never does this happen with Lufthansa, Turkish, Etihad. Disappointing."
Pros: "The cabin crew always smiled and were friendly. At no time did it appear that they were just pretending to be enjoying their job. They worked with great effectiveness."
Cons: "The sandwich served with mayonnaise and chicken was at room temperature. It didn't set well with my stomach. The plane landed and then parked so far away from the terminal. It took a half hour to exit the plane, board the non-air conditioned bus, and arrive at the terminal. The shuttle bus was extremely uncomfortable!"

Cons: "Technical issues with my in flight entertainment that was never that was never corrected"
Cons: "The staff was extremely rude and mean. They skipped me for food and had overall poor behavior. Worst international flight I've ever been on"
Pros: "First time on Emirates. Can definitely see why the company gets such high ratings. Crew very efficient and accommodating. Food was better than I expected. Especially the smoked chicken salad. I would have ordered that in a restaurant actually. The flight was long but not the seat not uncomfortable. Would try them again."
Pros: "The crew was incredibly welcoming and supportive. I was traveling with my daughter and they were so sweet to take pictures with her and bring her to the cockpit. The plane was state of the art and our flight was early. Now I see what everyone means when they say flying with Emirates is flying with among the best. Thanks Emirates."

Cons: "WiFi services were inadequate."
Pros: "So roomy on the a380 Vegetarian food great"
Pros: "The staff is super friendly and professional."
Cons: "I paid for an assigned window seat (18K) at the front of the plane. However when I arrived to my seat I was told that there is a handicap person in my room and I can't sit there and was offered a seat in the back of the plane. Yes of course I understand and wouldn't want to move a handicap person to get to my seat but at the same time I believe the seat assignment fee which I paid in advance should be refunded."
Pros: "Comfort, friendly crew, excellent service. Good food"
Pros: "The amenities in Business Class were excellent - the seat was luxurious and you could actually catch some sleep. The food was gourmet and the staff was very attentive. They made a small mistake and forgot to serve me dessert but the mistake was remedied immediately when I informed them of the slip up."
Cons: "I paid a LOT of money for a Business Class seat and yet I was never notified that my flight was going to be delayed in departing by 12+ hours until after I arrived at the airport. According the the flight crew, they were notified at 9am that morning and the airline had my phone number and email, yet I arrived at the airport at 8pm because I was never notified! I spent $50 to take a taxi to the airport and now I had a 10am departure the following morning! I was given no compensation for this massive issue. Just "sorry, come back tomorrow!" I was very upset! My choices were either take ANOTHER $50 taxi home that night and then another $50 taxi back in the morning or get a $150 hotel room at the airport. So glad I paid THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS for my Business Class seat (a big spend for me as I've never flown Business Class before but felt like a special treat for a special occasion). WTF, Emirates!"
Cons: "In this flight the flight attendant thought she was doing us a favour,although seated in 26F,preference of food was finished,there was no Pepsi,and felt I was treated badly because of my color and dress mode."
Cons: "It seems to me that the flights to India are a little more cramped than the ones from the West to Dubai."
Pros: "Customer service, food was good. Even though the flight was long, the crew did the best that they could to make it comfortable. They were generous with drinks, made sure we were comfortable. Will definitely do it again."
Cons: "Lost channels at times. the electonic system can be finicky at times, doesn't respond to touch right away. One of my suitcases came torn on a part close to the zipper, not sure if someone was trying to cut it. Looks very suspicious but nothing is missing."
Cons: "When you fly from Dubai boarding is a disaster and staff is rude"
Pros: "Everything.Comfortable seats very friendly and accommodating staff.Prompt limo service to and from airport.No hassels"
Pros: "Selection of food, BIG toilets good service"
Cons: "The way the head phones was taken and the Blanket. It was rought."
Pros: "Good service on the plane. They pretty much gave you whatever you asked for. No charge for beverages, etc., even alcohol. The food provided was very good."
Cons: "On the outbound flight, the seat bottom was very hard as if the cushion had deteriorated. My behind was killing me very shortly into the 7+ hour flight and I sat on my neck pillow, which wasn't ideal but helped a little. The seat on the return flight was more comfortable."
Cons: "Be sure to take your own water bottle with you on this long 14 hour flight. Both directions it seemed that the company approach to beverages was to serve as little as possible, perhaps to keep people out of the bathrooms. But the cabin air was so dry I could barely swallow at times one way drinking only what was provided, but the other way I noticed that my jet lag was greatly reduced when I carried and consumed an extra liter or two above what was provided. At one gate the security crew asked me to dump my water, but I had a small empty bottle with me that I could fill up at the spigot near the bathroom on the plane as needed."
Pros: "I got left alone! I watched movies, and slept most the flight!"
Cons: "Nothing in particular. I just wanted to be out of the plane asap since my "fun" incident in Maldives. Safe to say that emirates has ruined my vision of the maldives for a while."
Cons: "Baggage took close to 2 hours to get to baggage claim on return trip"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and the entertainment system (screen, phone charger, etc) including all the entertainment (movies, music, tv shows) was exceptional"
Pros: "On time. Very professional. Staff works hard. This was the longest flight I’ve ever done; 16.5 hrs and I can’t tell you how great everyone at Cathay Pacific was. They made a difficult flight quite bearable. That’s saying something."
Cons: "Less fog in SFO"
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "I don't like cameras spying on us. More leg room."
Cons: "About cabin crew for for more smile"
Pros: "seat very comfortable"

Pros: "Standard of the flight was good"
Cons: "Cabin personal was unengaged rude and everything than helpful"
Cons: "No wonder they are one of the best airliner"
Pros: "miracle fight landed on time"
Cons: "terrible food - poor entertaiment system with limited choice and old movies - crew always on the pa"

Pros: "A perfect landing/touchdown into Auckland. Great pilot"
Cons: "Passenger immediately behind said that they couldn't watch their movie properly when I wanted to recline my seat for sleeping position. Had to wait!!"
Pros: "Boarding was swift"
Cons: "Crew was indifferent and cold in their service. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "Flight was very smooth and pleasant. The entertainment was great with lots of choices. Premium economy seats on A350 was amazing. Very similar to Qants reganal business class on their 737. But how ever the seats on their A330 was average. But otherwise all was good. I would recommend Cathay."
Cons: "The food was very small portion and average in taste. The crew took a wile to take the trays and clear after all ate."
Cons: "Gate change from 34 to 4 in hgk airport was too far."
Pros: "Comfortable. Good service. No wait for restroom"
Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Average flight. Nothing special. Pleasant flight crew."
Cons: "Baggage was delayed."
Pros: "The flight staff was very curteous and helpful, that made a difference with the trip."
Cons: "The touch screen technology on the onflight entertainment was pretty bad. The movies played fine with no issue but navigating through the entertainment console was a pain since the touch screen responsiveness was so bad."
Pros: "Always consistently good.."
Pros: "The crew is always very polite and professional."
Cons: "I fly every two months and have to watch the same movies over and over. There should be a more frequent change. I just can't handle airplane food...........even if its Italian or American, it still tastes Asian."
Pros: "Our plane was an A350 equipped with a new entertainment center. The captain was able to get our flight in early. Unfortunately, because of weather/immigration problems at the destination, we weren't able to disembark for another 90 minutes. But I think the cabin crew handled this well, handing out both drinks and snacks. The captain also kept us informed, and also seemed to play a role in negotiating with the airport authorities to allow us to disembark at another gate. Otherwise it may have been a longer ordeal."
Cons: "The security measures for US bound flights made things more confusing for boarding. This wasn't the airline's responsibility, and the security check was fast and professional. Next time I hope they work better with the customers to make sure we know what is going on. But this is a small complaint on my part."
Pros: "Great customer service. Very attentive"
Cons: "Lack of room"
Pros: "The vegetarian/vegan meals were very good for airline food. There was a great selection of entertainment options."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants who was assigned to my section, her name was Rain, was incredibly rude. Every time I asked her for a glass of water, she would sigh heavily and tell me to wait. Eventually, she stopped serving me all together and I needed to leave my seat and ask other crew members to serve my food. She was completely unprofessional and she made it clear she didn't like me, despite the fact that I was always going out of my way to be courteous. At one point, she walked down the aisle and stepped directly onto my foot, which was NOT in the aisle but under the seat in front of me. She didn't even acknowledge that she had stepped on my foot and kept walking. For a 14-hour flight, I was really bothered by her lack of professionalism. I will have to think twice before I book Cathay Pacific again."
Pros: "The airplaine Service Adequate food and good wines Very good entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Very quaint and hour flight went by pretty fast"
Cons: "Electric outlets did not work on chairs"
Pros: "Plane left almost 2 hours late otherwise everything was excellent."
Pros: "super comfortable seats, complete amenities (pillows, blankets, TV and a plug to charge your devices). flights are also on time and the food is great! I've been flying through budget airlines until now; although I flew economy with Cathay, the flight experience felt very premium."
Cons: "Being an experienced traveller, I am for the first tine encounter a female flight attendant who was not only impolite to passengers, and kicked toilet doors!"
Pros: "No issues."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "- Crew friendly and helpful"
Cons: "- very uncomfortable flight - seated with someone who whined and complained the whole way - could not sleep as the person behind me snored loudly the whole night - Was sitting in the isle seat and kept getting hit in the arm every time the trolley went by"
Pros: "Entertainment okay. Screen small"
Cons: "No legroom at all. And I'm not even a big person."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, clean toilets, great service, awesome entertainment options, great movie selection with search by keyword"
Cons: "For a 15 hour flight no way to make economy class comfortable at this price ( I flew Cathay since they were much cheaper than flying directly from japan"
Pros: "I will give 10 out of 10 to Cathay for their excellent service, fast air time, humble crew service and a bonus point for their quality of meals/ food. I am a pure vegetarian & in all my flight the crew made sure that I got the correct food tray & it was not mixed with wrong mean (non veg.) by mistake. Unlike other flight where meal is just an obligation, Cathay made sure that the taste was very nice too. Full points to them. The quality of seats was good & nice leg space as well. Overall the experiance was very pleasant & I highly recommend Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Luggage allowance, in-flight meals, good flight, arrived early"
Cons: "Cabin a bit "dull""
Cons: "Food was awful flight and cr"
Pros: "The food and snacks"
Cons: "More space on seats"
Pros: "On flight entertainment was good. Fairly typical economy flight. It was just fine."
Cons: "People over a certain weight should need to upgrade to larger seats. I sat next to someone well over 300 pounds in an economy seat. It's just not ok."
Pros: "The crew was very cordial and respectful.We spilled our water on the seat and they quickly helped us to clean it up without any fuss or accusation."
Cons: "The food did not smell delicious. My son was already feeling quite ill from the previous trip and could not eat."
Cons: "I am not a frequent flier on Cathay. I would say I would think twice before buying my next ticket. Their call centers and counter staff leave a huge amount to be desired. I called their help desk when I couldn't access my reservation. My problem is their systems push your first and middle names together as a first name in their systems so I couldn't access my reservation. I really, really struggled understanding the person on their help desk. Then 48 hours before my flight I tried to book my seats and get my boarding pass. There were no seats for a party of 3 traveling together and only middle seats for the 3 of us. I waited for 20 minutes calling their support center. Of course their team could not help. All seats were booked. Luckily she offered to book my seats for the return and we managed to get the last 3 together in the back of the plane. If you book through Kayak recommend immediately calling to book seat numbers. I have ran out of room but returning from Vancouver their systems didn't read American passports and everyone tried to get tickets issued the staff at the desk laughed when told and said they knew it was a problem....but it did keep the many skiers busy in the self service line:) Also the desk opens 2hours and 59 minutes before departure so don't arrive early"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight from Hong Kong to JFK. I was given another flight but had to wait seven hours. Meal vouchers did not cover enough for how long I waited. New flight was not direct like the original one so there was a layover in Vancouver. I was supposed to get back to New York on February 2nd at night, but arrived around 6:00am on the 3rd. This was a major inconvenience since I had school 3 hours after I arrived and then work. I would suggest to not have arriving flights and connecting departing flights less than hour and thirty minutes to two hours apart. Only for delay issues."
Pros: "Had a very present experience. Crew was lovely and helpful. Liked that we had menus for meals and snack readily available. Felt like the food was better than the average plane fair and wine with the meal of you want it. Plenty of movies on the media screen. There was often a line for the toilets. We must have been a well hydrated flight. Attendants were good with maintaining the tissue paper etc when notified that it had run out Overall a very pleasant experience."
Pros: "most of the crew was fine but..."
Cons: "one crazy crew member started banging on the restroom door and would not stop until I opened the door. ... simply because the pilot was telling us the weather in HK. So rude. Will definitely select another airline next time."
Cons: "The food was simple and not enough for Cathay Pacific standard"
Pros: "Cabin crew always smiling and helping out"
Pros: "Super easy to book, loved the notifications of baggage claim number upon exiting the flight. Great itinerary too."
Pros: "Food nice, much better than KLM. Typical great Asian service."
Cons: "No information as to why boarding was over 30 minutes late, even though last call was announced!"
Pros: "crew was great, seaating was best and very comfortable, seem;s seat's were a bit wider and little more leg room. Fight's were on time and landed early, food was very good and service was top's"
Cons: "there was nothing that I didn't like"

Cons: "Good food and entertainment. Flight started in delay as usual with Turkish"
Cons: "All gy"
Pros: "Overall the flight experience was very good"
Cons: "I was soooo upset that the check in person when I was about to board the plane couldn't help me to change the seat number. Why is so Hard? Just switch numbers with other people and tell them the changes. US flight do that why Turkish flight doesn't!! Most of people fly alone, its that easy."
Pros: "Smooth service"
Cons: "The dessert. Change it from always service mousse"
Cons: "My suitcase was completely soaked from the rain in Istanbul. It must have been left on the tarmac in Istanbul before it was loaded onto the aircraft. I had clothes on the inside that needed to be dried once in Cairo."
Cons: "Boarding and airport were terrible. Needed to walk 2 KM from one gate to another, only to board bus back to original location. Bus needed to make multiple trips to accommodate all passengers, this took one hour for boarding."
Cons: "The flight was late, with no explanation."
Pros: "It was clean nd better food that United."
Cons: "Stupid policy about carry on luggage (8KG or less) made my life horrible. Stupid rule—no Turkish for me, my laptop and my “heavy” camera."
Pros: "The flight attendants"
Cons: "There is no communication from the airport to the passengers making it really complicated to board the plane on time even while waiting for the boarding to begin at the gate."
Cons: "I could not use my ticket I was trying to extension date but customer services terrible"
Cons: "Didn't get to travel. Will never fly Turkish Airlines again."
Pros: "Great food, comfortable seats. I didn’t go business class, but tbh I think flyin business class this route is a waste."
Cons: "Having to stop over in Bishkek and deplane before going on to Mongolia. Why do we have to go through security again when we’re getting onto the same plane with the same items?"
Cons: "Delaying without notice and luggage lost"
Cons: "They didn't have my special meal"
Pros: "Crew was top notch. Very friendly and accommodating. Always a smile on their faces. Arline was nice and clean. Long flight but comfortable. Keep it up and continue to improve. I will be a repeat costumer"
Cons: "no complaints whatsoever"
Pros: "Liked the movies and entertainment selections."
Cons: "They didn't have a vegan menu. I had requested vegan and called over the phone a month before my flight and they said they understood. Then on the flight I was told they only do vegetarian which was not good enough. After food was passed out to guests the flight crew dissapeared and never came to collect food trays till about 2 hours after and guests were starting to make a mess leaving food trays on the ground and isles. I had already selected my seat prior to boarding which I paid hundreds of dollars for. Then after boarding the flight crew asked me and the gentleman sitting next to me to move our seats to accomodate for another man that wanted to sit next to his wife. Then I was stuck in a middle seat and I paid for an isle seat. I thought this was rediculous. No one offered me a discount or anything! And the man that wanted to sit next to his wife wouldn't let the plane leave till he was sitting next to his wife. What was I supposed to do? Hold up the plane even longer? This was so crazy!! Outrageous!"
Pros: "Good Service!"
Cons: "Miss Plane due to long line for security check at Munich Airport. So I miss my Plane! Turkish Airline wanted to charge me $798 one way from Munich to JFK USA to rebook flight! so I book a flight with another airline in Munich way cheaper! Turkish Airways is blacklisted for LIFE! after trying to charge me the price of a round trip for a one way rebooking!"
Pros: "Purchase value"
Cons: "Economy seats are a bit tight"
Pros: "As usually, the crew, good, entertainment, and comfort were all marvelous."
Cons: "The boarding process was slower than normal though it seemed out of control of the Turkish Airlines staff."
Pros: "It's always pleasure to travel with Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Great entertainment systems"
Cons: "Leg room was especially tight."
Pros: "Thoughtful and attetive staff."
Cons: "No USB in economy."
Cons: "Food was old"
Pros: "I liked the idea of offering a tour of Istanbul during long connections that Turkish airlines offer. The tour that I went on was a 2.5 hour bus ride with sightseeing from the window mostly - still it was very nice. The people organizing passengers in groups for the tour in the airport however were not so nice. When I said "I have a question", the guy literally ROLLED HIS EYES at me."
Cons: "The crew was somewhat rude and unwelcoming, both in the plane and on the ground. The seat is not comfortable in comparison with other transatlantic flights - somehow the crew and the seats were so much better on my connecting TK flight within Europe."
Cons: "Damaged luggage. My fist time traveling without my parents and didn't know what to do. Tried looking for someone to contact on the Turkish airlines site, no luck. My mother will help me when she gets back from her holiday."
Pros: "Staff was extremely helpful and responsive. I like that plane is clean, and many plus, very good entertainment. I love that it is non-stop from SFO to Istanbul. Food was superb!"
Cons: "As usual check in and boarding is horrible with Turkish Airlines. I have used Lufthansa, British Airways, Air France, et had not trouble with them. Why is it so hard to improve this in Turkish Airlines. No charger for computer even during 13 hours flight?"
Pros: "Everything on the flight with the smooth running of the flight by the plight"
Cons: "The connecting flight from New York to Istanbul and Istanbul to Lagos Nigeria is bad time difference"
Pros: "Entertainment on board was the best part. Food is decent."
Cons: "Worst customer service I've ever had in an airport at Attaturk. Turkish airline staff was horribly rude, wouldn't acknowledge their mistakes, very uninforming and all of it to pretty much force you to pay the airline more money in penalty fees for changing flight arrangements and new ticket purchases. And be careful THEY DON'T have any announcement on the intercom system at Attaturk (I had no clue as to that being the case there, nor have I ever been at an airport that doesn't). No boarding announcement, no gate change announcement, no nothing.....and if and when you miss a flight because you didn't know the gate changed while you're sitting at what you thought was your gate and no one bothered to let you know (including the person who checked your boarding pass when you came into that gate area, it's down hill from there! They will tell you it's your fault and not give a dam* what you say to argue otherwise....and......if you don't pay the penalty they dictate to change your flight ($1114 on a $780 ticket in my case so I purchased another ticket on Turkish air on my own for $236 to get me where I was going), they WILL cancel your return flight without telling you, at which point you will have to buy a new ticket to get back home and they end up getting the money out of you regardless. This was an absolute nightmare of a trip, couple with being treated like dirt by everyone at the airport. I will not ever again fly Turkish Air if I can help it."
Pros: "The food was good and the entertainment selection was good."
Cons: "I landed in Istanbul for a 19 hour layover. I previously made arrangements to stay at an Airbnb nearby. I was made aware that a Visa is required while attempting to go through passport control. I had to leave the line I spent 30 minutes waiting in to go get a Visa for 25 Euros. I was never informed of this requirement by Kayak or Turkish Air. It was a very frustrating experience and an added expense for which I expect to be reimbursed."
Pros: "Free wifi for business class HD movies + good quality DENON headseat"
Cons: "Terrible foods taste Zero hospitality crews Lack of food and deink service during 13hour flight No airconditiiner at gate 230 and queue like hell!"
Pros: "the crew in turkish airlines is always nice and courteous. the food was very tasty. i LOVE the little bag with slippers, socks and tooth brush and paste and other amenities."
Cons: "i got lucky and had multiple seats to myself, and it was still tight. i can imagine if i had only one seat i would be in a lot of pain coming off the flight. the bathrooms are very tight too,"
Pros: "Half of the plane was empty so most passengers were sleeping"
Cons: "customer service at,istanbul airport was terrible no help nobody knows English at international airport. all they have to speak is Turkce all the way from Istanbul to Atlanta they serve Pasta. very rode is this the standard of good airline?"
Cons: "Flight was canceled 4. in this year. 17 passangers is not good biznis for TURKISH AIRLINES"
Cons: "Service is very bad"
Pros: "Turkish staff places the comfort and convenience of their passengers high on their priorities. Crew is friendly and efficient, very helpful. I preferred it over my Emirates experience"
Cons: "Crew didnt act like they liked their job"
Pros: "I liked the friendly staff and regular drink, hot wash cloth, and food."
Cons: "Bringing a hot wash cloth around just before landing after flying all night would be refreshing. I think it would give people the next best thing to a hot shower. I should have picked an isle seat. I was on a 10 plus hour flight and felt trapped and my isle guy had his headphones in or slept all but one small break in that 11 hours. I felt abit claustrophobic."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the food was good. Being from the US I was not expecting food in a 2.5 hr flight!"
Cons: "The seats were not as comfortable as in the Airbus for the transatlantic flight."
Cons: "Board on tarmack..steps...steps..carrying carry on soo difficult..no one to help..not good at all!!!"
Pros: "All flight segments were on time, the crew was very pleasant, but the main thing was that I felt that the cabin noise was lower than the other airliners .... ????"

Pros: "Friendly staff good service."
Cons: "The grill chicken served for dinner was cold."
Pros: "The space was incredible had enough leg room, the food was delicious, the amenities like the movies and music and games made the flight feel a lot quicker loved this air line!!!!"
Cons: "The bathroom needed a little more maitence that's all!!"

Cons: "Stewardesses did their jobs, but as far as checking on passengers at non-food and assigned drink times, they were sitting in the back drinking coffee and talking. On top of not making rounds, there was no call button to summon a stewardess. Twice, my husband who was ill had a "coughing attack" and needed a glass of water... there was nobody was available. A passenger had to go and get them from the back. Perhaps due to this being a 13 hour flight, this is not a normal situation for them, but to go three hours at a time without taking a stroll through the cabin seems unprofessional. Otherwise this airline really does amazing service! I did not realize that such airline service still existed. American ones should pay attention!"

Pros: "Comfortable and well laid out seat area"
Cons: "Food was a little substandard for business class"
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.

Cons: "seats on Jet air flight are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."

Cons: "Unable to pick seats in advance,, were assigned seats that did not recline for 11 hour flight. One bathroom not functioning. Very limited movie choices for inflight entertainment. Seat belts much shorter than other airlines, so very confining, unable to loosen to relax in any position other than sitting straight in seat. In Rome had to check in & go through security at Terminal 5 then get bussed to Terminal 3. Only airport where we had to take out all electronics, including converter plugs, headphones, etc, place in a flimsy clear plastic bag ( that broke ) to go through security. Line to check bags pretty slow for number of passengers. Glad we had plenty of time."
Cons: "My Kosher meal never made it on-board. The cabin (and the airport) were way too cold"
Pros: "Staff was excellent. Entertainment options pretty good."
Cons: "Seems very dated. Business Class felt cramped and not very luxurious."
