Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great flight crew"
Cons: "Nothing, everything just right"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "Crew is horrible. Very rude and refused to help by any means when i asked for my baby stroller. I have 2 kids that I had to carry all the way through customs and bagga claim because refuse to bring stroller to the gate and was very rude in their answer. Horrible Experience. I will never fly emirates"
Cons: "train the crew to respect customers, and to show care for families. I'm surprised Emirates always market about how friendly they are with family travels when the crew not only refuse to bring the stroller to the gate like all other airlines, but was also very rude. Her name was Annalie"
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Seating was very cramped. I paid $900 for my flight, and the seats were so on top of one another you could barely breath without touching another human. Just because other airlines do it ... doesn’t mean Emirates should."
Pros: "The food was good. The crew was very accommodating."
Cons: ".If the seats recline to just a little bit more"
Pros: "Crew was kind, attentive, funny, and engaging. The best."
Cons: "A warning about landing in Dubai, and being put on a bus to the terminal"
Pros: "Great customer service, great and always smiling crew, wonderful flight"
Cons: "the food options need to be more. an option with steamed rice should always be available"
Pros: "Very professional and helpful crew. Great entertainment."
Cons: "Seats in economy a little cramped. Better to fly their A-380 double decker as more space."
Cons: "Flew airbus 380 all the way and it was super comfortable!"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "South African airlines allowed me to reserve a seat. But Emirates didn't have it in the system when I checked in."
Pros: "All was fine"
Pros: "The staff was quite helpful in many ways and checking in was easy with online booking. For an economy flight, the quality of the food was good."
Cons: "I found it difficult to navigate the screen on the airline. Everything else was fine and I am happy with the airline."
Cons: "The food was appalling and crew service very ordinary much inferior to Qantas. The seats are also uncomfortable"
Pros: "Our first two times on EMIRATES airline. 15+ hours going East and then back home. An absolute joy compared to our tired traditional USA choices. Hopefully UNITED and AMERICAN can somehow update."
Cons: "All good even on a full 400 passenger flight!!"
Pros: "The seats in economy at least had TVs"
Cons: "After 4+ hours sitting on the plane we never even left San Francisco. The Emirates plane was less than standard in economy class and we weren’t even offered water for the entire time we waited. The customer service was terrible and we weren’t even able to retrieve our carry on bags that we were forced to check (not due to the size). This was by far the worst first time experience I’ve had and will not be flying Emirates again."
Cons: "when i asked for lunch they said it will be served in 20mins and i got it after 50 mins i was very hungry"
Cons: "Food was bland, repetitive (poor choice and variety) Crew was unwelcoming. Had to ask multiple times for water, soda and also take away plates I have travelled emirates before so this flight was bad compared to previous experiences"
Cons: "The food selection was limited and not tasteful!"
Pros: "Nice airplane, good entertainment, good food, ontime service, pleasant cabin crew"
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"
Cons: "Flight change"
Cons: "Cabin crew were reluctant offering passengers liquids on board we had to go and find them to ask for either water or juice as it was a long Flight which took 15 Hours on Air"
Cons: "Late boarding. Thought I was flying emirates and turned out to be Qantas. Seats not as comfy. They lost my luggage. Took 2 days to get it back."
Pros: "Nice ontime flight."
Pros: "It would be useful if Emirates would allow us to reserve the adjoining seat of the 3 (on less than full flights) so that we can have the extra space."
Pros: "I loved all the free services. Wifi, 2 large and tasty meals with free drinks (wine, beer) free exit row seating, seats reclined more than other airlines and free baggage. The staff was awesome and very helpful."
Pros: "Most of the crew was nice and accommodating"
Cons: "There was a hair in my food. Seats 46a and 46b were very constricting, leaving it very uncomfortable for sitting."
Pros: "Love it. Classy flight attendants, great service."
Cons: "Crying baby"
Pros: "Thanks to the nice lady who gave up an Aisle seat so I could sit next to my daughter."
Cons: "Other people's kids are wiggly and annoying, and there were many! Not a seat empty in the huge plane. PThe staff did as best they could under the circumstances. But 17 hours of crowds are hard to take. Very rough landing, which I wouldn't mention except that I've had several on Emirates lately."
Pros: "Free upgrade given as skywards gold"
Cons: "ICE not as good as a380"
Cons: "That the plane can't do 2,000 mph and have us there in 1/4 the time :-)"
Pros: "Crew very kind"
Cons: "food not very good"
Pros: "Well trained crew, layout of aircraft and comfort, wide choice of entertainment, smoothness of ride"
Cons: "boarding was rather disorganized mob scene"
Pros: "great lie flat bed, was too tired to take advantage of the service"
Pros: "the food"
Pros: "Everything. Emirates is fantastic. Great service more room in economy than others."
Cons: "We have booked two tickets separately. One for me and the other for my wife and kid. But we were travelling together. When we checkin, we told we need the seats together. But, they did not give the seat together. Also, our connection time was 2 hours for the next flight. To receive the baggage in the port of entry, it took more than 1 hour 15 mins in the carousel. After that we had to clear customs, change terminal and clear security in 45 mins to catch the next flight. It was really tough for us. They could have handled the baggage little efficiently."
Pros: "Upgraded to Business Class. On a A380 its really significant."
Cons: "The crew was abit too talkative during non-service."
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was bad in terms of quality and quantity."
Pros: "The entertainment system was okay. The cabin crew did the best they could, but did run out of the [honestly very mediocre] food."
Cons: "Emirates' economy cabin is extremely crowded. The food is mediocre even for airplane food."
Pros: "Everything...food and staffs were great"
Cons: "We specifically reserved AVM meal option and couldn't get that on flight. It appears that it was not only us but many passengers who reserved AVM meal option were complaining about not getting one. On 14 hours long flight not getting a good of your choice is bad."
Cons: "The crew was very impolite."
Pros: "In flight staff were great, very industrious, and very friendly. In-flight entertainment was the best I have come across on an economy seat."
Cons: "My check-in experience was concerning. I had an onward flight to Manila, but no onward flight from there. The airline policy had me not allowed to check in for my flight because of this. I narrowly avoided missing my flight by booking another flight just in time."
Pros: "I flew in a380."
Cons: "Their customer services is not terrible, it's nonexistent."
Pros: "Boarding, cabin crew. Entertainment, aircraft, everything was top notch."
Cons: "Food is outdated. Menu is not based on nutrition. The pizza served at end of flight is terrible. It should be replaced with a high protein snack. Food is tilted heavily towards carbohydrates and main entree is about 25 percent less than it should be. If the menu evolves a bit to include slightly larger portions, more fiber , protein, vitamins and minerals , it would be a true 5 star experience. Other than food, I rate this flight and experience 5 stars ."
Pros: "الشكر للاماراتيه على مجهوداتها الكبيره"
Cons: "الطيران الاماراتي ممتاز جدا والخدمات ممتازه جدا جدا تحتاج شي بسيط وهو تقوية الواي فاي فقط طيران جميل جدا"

Pros: "Professional crew"
Cons: "Depart on time"
Pros: "Good amount of leg space"
Pros: "Awful airline. Will never get tickets through you again."

Pros: "Will never purchase tickets through kayak ever again"
Cons: "Not a lot of legroom in my Premium Economy seat (10C). Seat itself just OK, the high price isn't justified. This flight is usually about one hour late and it was."
Pros: "Crew was good and entertainment was great."
Cons: "They charged me 200 euros for my bag and I wasn’t told that I couldn’t bring 1 luggage with me."
Pros: "They DID NOT let me aboard the airline!!! Austerian airline is the worst EVER, because they are not even helping me to get a credit to fly Monday to Israel. The of ticket counter at ORD were treating me as a dirt. And unwelcome. I was trying to reason with them, they did NOT want to help."
Cons: "It would have been better if back to back with priceline helped me out to get to another flight & they won’t even credit my ticket, so I LOST about $1200 & was excited for my vacation. They were unhelpful & they kept putting me untold & hanging up on me with their ticket agency on phone too."
Cons: "small seats,no LCD for each one,food nor so good."
Cons: "Delayed boarding, crew very friendly, polite"
Pros: "Boarding was great. As it was a short there was no entertainment. I would have chosen N/A bit that wasn’t an option hence the one star."
Cons: "I wish there was an option of a sandwich vice sweet or pretzels."
Pros: "Flight on time, and luggage was at destination. Crew OK"
Cons: "Food disappointing, dry, and tasteless, my dinner was missing half of what my husband had. Was not worth the effort to complain. Seats left you in pain, no lower back support, and very hard seats."
Pros: "The crew and the service was excellent. Dinner was excellent. The hot breakfast never came. We were served a roll and one small cup of coffee with no refills. That was my only complaint. On a long overseas flight I think a hot breakfast would have been better than a roll."
Pros: "On time take off"
Cons: "They serve non-halal food with Muslim menu. They think hat non-pork meat means halal/zabihah. Non friendly flight crew"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled on the first day. I had to call to find out that I was rebooked on a flight the next day."
Pros: "I get Airpoints with the flight, crew were lovely."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, so a few delays (as they were asking if anyone would layover to release a seat) and they were being very strict on the one bag per traveller, but that’s fair enough considering it was busy."
Pros: "All flights were on schedule"
Cons: "No place to put my feet. No foot room"
Pros: "I'm so happy I did not book Austrian Airlines for the way back to Zurich."
Cons: "My checked in baggage did not arrive with me, the staff told me it'll arrive the same day in the evening but it did not and nobody informed me, I only found out after calling them 5 times (which 2 times they hung up on me after putting me on hold). My bag only arrived almost 35 hours after i already landed Hong Kong, without being able to tell me when exactly and made me sit and wait for them to deliver it at mid-night."
Cons: "Difficulty getting to flight"
Pros: "On time and amazing flight crew! SO attentive and personal...seemed to really enjoy their job."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Using a smaller Dadh 8 on this flight meant we had a lovely view of Alps."
Cons: "Poor announcements."
Pros: "Austrian Airlines does it right— service, food, cleanliness. This was a really terrific experience. They even boarded efficiently, having those with seats in the back board first."
Cons: "This was a great flying experience."
Cons: "Long delay."
Pros: "Short flight and got a snack"
Cons: "Boarding was a hassle"
Pros: "Movie selection, crew was very polite"
Cons: "Main meal was a little funky and boarding is always a hassle"
Pros: "Efficient boarding from bus. Friendly crew. Offered soft drink and coffee as well as choice of 2 snacks. No entertainment as such a short flight. Clean, modern plane."
Pros: "The check in crew were great. They checked my overweight carry on with no problem for free Free alcohol"
Cons: "The food was not edible"
Cons: "Changing planes on Vienna was not easy so 1-hour layover was barely enough (required running)"
Pros: "The service. Very attentive staff."
Cons: "Hot meal was awful"
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "If you have to fly coach, this was the way to go. The star were lovely, plane clean, food was good. Very nice flight from LAX to Vienna."
Pros: "I loved the music while boarding the plane. All staff members were very nice."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, as is always true with both Austrian Airlines and Lufthansa."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment included so many mediocre films, with hardly a classic among them. I suppose those are cheaper, but I would think both Austrian and Lufthansa (they seemed to be using almost identical entertainment systems with almost identical offerings) would benefit from limiting their movie options much more towards movies with, say, above a 70% Rotten Tomatoes rating or above average box office sales. Even if they had fewer films, say 40 instead of 56, the ones they have would be more popular."
Pros: "All was great"
Cons: "except we could not do an online check-in"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and we weren't notified."
Pros: "Great floght"
Cons: "Behavior of AA"
Pros: "They offered passangers ti move to raws that wete half empty so we will have more room."
Pros: "that everything was in order - alles in ordnung, without much fuss. short flight, no time to get dissapointments, but I did not expect some anyway."
Pros: "Catering and service was superb. While linen. Course by course on China, no tray service. The food was exquisite. The wine was acceptable, mid range, with very generous pours in Riedel glassware and always the offer made of would I like anything more? The seperate coffee menu has to be experienced to be believed, basically, it's an authentic Vienna see cafe experience at 30,000 ft."
Cons: "Entertainment selection was fiddly and the offerings meagre compared to the vast libraries found on other carriers, but it was sufficient. More a quibble than a gripe from me. The noise cancelling headsets were good quality noise cancelling, and comfortable. I can't wear some other airlines headsets at all and use my ear pods with an airline adapter jack."
Pros: "The plane itself was ok, the food also was ok."
Cons: "As usual, boarding in Miami airport is awful which is not exactly coming from austrian airlines, but they also took part in the unpleasant experience. The announcements were badly articulated, the boarding time was delayed and so on. Onboard, part of the crew completely refused to speak english."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and fine. No problem with boarding etc"
Cons: "The seat comfort and closeness of the passengers is terrible. And makes for a stressful and painful flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Been traveling with Auystrian for a while now and so far so good, I'm very satisfied"
Cons: "We finally had to resort to twitter to do our check-in which was only for the second part of the journey."

Pros: "Muslim food"
Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"
Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."
Pros: "Everything works and quick to get to destination."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "No food provided "due to a strike the previous day". Not sure why this would impact on providing a sandwich or snack particularly when champagne was still available for first class passengers."
Pros: "Just as I expected. And I made my last connection easily."
Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and the food was really good."
Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."
Pros: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"
Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"
Pros: "Overall KLM experience is good"
Cons: "Food quality was mediocre for a business class flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, friendly crew. Crew were conscious of recycling which I like a lot as there is so much waste on flight. Anything we can do to reduce waste is very welcome."
Cons: "Food wasn't very appetizing, pasta didn't have much flavor and I don't eat red meat so the other choice wasn't an option for me."
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "KLM was a great experience compared to Airitalia. The food was good, the flight attendants were very helpful."
Pros: "The flight arrived a few minutes early."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and in poor repair. The seats were extremely close together. The inflight entertainment system, wifi and passenger electric outlets were all non-functional. Even the wastebin in the lavatory was full and an extra bag was put on the floor."
Pros: "Smooth and faster than expected trip. I felt free to get up and walk around on this long flight. Food was good. I sat in seat with extra leg room for the first time and it was worth it"
Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "Light snack and complementary wine"
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"

Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Pros: "Need better quality tvs for such a long flight and better movies There were only 4 Bollywood movies and not the latest ones either"
Pros: "Food was just fine, movie selection very good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seat cushions, lights were truned on too early (1.5 hours before flight landed)"
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: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."
Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Boarding was quick, Flight on time....just a regular service and plane"
Cons: "Terminal 3 Manchester is not worth staying longer then necessary, loud music, crowded....old"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival."
Pros: "Booked extra room seat which gave me good room for seating"
Pros: "All cabin crew were courteous. Refreshments were light. Check stuff were helpful, they did devise that the flight was full and due to space hand luggage would prefer to be put in hold free of charge. We did not have any problem with this. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Service was a little slow going through the gate, it seemed to take a while for everyone to get on board."
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."
Pros: "Service impeccable!"
Cons: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."
Pros: "The food and the punctuality"
Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"
Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"
Pros: "They were awesome."
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "quick boarding, responsive Airline stewardess, very polite."
Cons: "temperature control was not good, service was fine, seats were not comfortable. plane need to be cleaner."
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."

Pros: "Special treat for King's Day Friendly crew"
Cons: "15 min late boarding 30 min delay leaving the gate Very little leg room"
Pros: "Except for my negative comment, a good flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, but due to the poor alignment of the seats with the actual windows, I actually sat next to a wall! Nol much to see out of a wall. If KLM are going to charge extra for a window seat, then they should make sure there is a window there! If the seat had actually had a window it would have been an excellent flight."
Pros: "KLM food and service are great"
Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, personable,joked around. I though boarding would take forever but very smooth."
Cons: "Honestly...being stuffed in like sardines ....it is getting worse. maybe the older I get the more I see it....but its so uncomfortable. I think the old days were much better!"
Pros: "Quick flight. Quiet and peaceful."
Cons: "Snacks are kinda lame."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and that added to an already for a very long day. We also ended up waiting a long time while aboard. There apparently was a weight balancing issue. It took them a long time to let us know why we were sitting there. Otherwise everything was okay."
Cons: "There was an almost 4 hour delay that WestJet is taking no responsibility for, and their online chat agents lack any compassion or understanding. Also received an email saying the aircraft changed and there would be a seatback flight entertainment system but there wasn't."
Pros: "Crew were nice, everything was on time."
Cons: "Need to use your own device to watch entertainment. No screens."
Cons: "WE WERE NOT NOTIFIED OF A GATE CHANGE IN CALGARY WHEN WE GOT TO THE AIRPORT. VERY CONFUSING. wE HAD TO ASK."
Pros: "Roomie seat. Professional curdious crew. Fast smooth flight. Westjet connect access for entertainment."
Pros: "Good crew and on time departure"
Cons: "Overnight flight. How nice it would have been to have blanket and pillows as provided by some airlines ."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Very thankful my flight went smooth as I flew with my puppy."
Pros: "Great and responsive crew, still-amusing WestJet wit. Very organized!"
Cons: "Some older (like 1940s-1950s) movies for in-flight entertainment would have been great."
Pros: "No frills. Friendly staff."
Pros: "Left early and arrived early"
Cons: "Cabin was way too warm. Also not as much space on 737-700 as 737-800"
Cons: "The entire plane smelt like the washroom, and a mix of engine fuel. I wasn't extremely thrilled about that."
Pros: "The staff on board made us completely forget we just experienced a terrible 6 hour experience in the hands of westjet from punta cana. The airport staff and security were efficient and all friendly. Helped us every step of the way. But again, a big thank you to the 4 flight attendants on the ws 254 to Halifax. Made our crappy day much better simply by being a friendly and happy face."
Cons: "Didnt like having to connect but understand that was to my own booking."
Pros: "Nice new 737 max aircraft"
Cons: "My returning flights were not correct. I ended up having 2 returning flights back to Halifax which made me have to overnight in Toronto unexpectedly."
Pros: "I liked the price for my flight however I booked using my AirMiles."
Cons: "I have travel with WestJet many times is the past and had nothing but good to say. This was my first time using WestJet Encore and was totally shocked and disappointed. The flight crew i found to be very rude with and had an attitude. The biggest shock was the greetings and all announcements were in English accept the safety rules where the pre-recorded tape was played. If asked about the return flight from Halifax to Montreal, one word to describe it "disaster". I was totally turned off with WestJet. I will for sure continue using Porter as I was always pleased with there service. As they say "you get what you pay for"."
Pros: "relatively inexpensive"
Cons: "my knees were pressed against the seat in front of me the flight left late, so arrived ~2.5 hours late"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and worked to get us boarded quickly because it was cold outside on the tarmac. The flight was smooth with a good landing."
Cons: "WestJet’s WiFi, to allow passengers to connect to the WestJet entertainment app, was not available on this flight which was a surprise. I don’t always enjoy flying and have some anxiety, so entertainment like movies or shows helps get me through flights. This flight was harder because I didn’t know that option wouldn’t be available."
Pros: "The crew are always great."
Cons: "The past few times my flight has been delayed"
Pros: "An uneventful and comfortable trip, well.. as comfortable as any aircraft gets :)"
Pros: "The crew remained quite calm and polite in a stressful situation, and they gave us free food and drinks for the inconvenience."
Cons: "There was an issue with plane's landing gear so we were delayed by over 2 hours (where we just sat in the plane on the tarmac) and we had to fly with the landing gear down the whole time. This meant we had to fly at 12,000 feet the whole time so it took longer, no luggage was brought on the plane, and passengers had to be moved around to redistribute weight, but we were never really told why or what was going on in terms of how it all worked which was quite scary. I'd say close to half the passengers actually got off the plane because they didn't feel safe flying. We got in over 4 hours later than anticipated with 0 luggage. Overall the flight was very scary and now we have no luggage. Had the option of having out luggage delivered the next day or a $100 travel credit. No credit or any compensation if the luggage was delivered."
Pros: "I didn't!"
Cons: "Late, late, late! I was a prisoner in my seat."
Cons: "Leaving Gatwick 30 minutes late had us miss our planned Halifax to Toronto. The next flight was 4.5 hours later. After a trans Atlantic, that is horrid."
Pros: "Boarding etc was organized and efficient."
Cons: "Did not find the crew helpful or friendly."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Pros: "The on board entertainment is very good, just remember to download the westjet connect app."
Cons: "Seats are ok, very cramped together, hard to get in and out of. I had picked plus seats but kayak didn't honor my selection so was forced to sit at the rear of the plane. As for the flight itself, the airliner sells only Coca Cola products, no cash purchases, credit and debit only. No free bag checks,"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and very helpful. Made sure you were well looked after. The entertainment was top notch as well, but would have preferred a tablet or seat screen for international flights."
Cons: "I upgraded to Plus for my flight and I expected more leg room, because I am 6'5. I felt cramped and couldn't sleep. Emergency exit would have been better. My neck hurt after the flight because you have to look down at your phone the whole time while watching movies. Food was mediocre, it wasn't top of the line. Wont fly westjet again."
Cons: "Very few options were available to redirect me to my final destination"
Pros: "Complimentary drinks"
Pros: "I would like to see more spacious and comfortable seating. They rest is inconsequential. Besides that, no complaints. Thank you."
Cons: "We did not like feeling cramped. This part of the world is breeding much bigger humans than before. Please make allowance for that. I had a tough time breathing...2 big guys side by side is a sorry sight in that limited space."
Cons: "It didn't happen"
Pros: "When I stepped onto the plane, there was someone there to greet you. That was nice."
Pros: "While the flight took off 30 minutes late, the pilot made up the time in air."
Pros: "WestJet Connect, food, fast service on board."
Cons: "Time to take off. A flight attendant told us to go back and register the car seat before boarding, but it was not necessary. Waste of time."
Pros: "All staff I encountered were amazing."
Cons: "This was where the real fun in my trip happened. After my arriving flight got in 2 hours late and sat on the runway for 45 minutes because there was too many planes in the way for my plane to get to the gate I was not in the mood to run across the airport to go through customs and then through security (for the second time). However in order to make it onto this final flight that's exactly what I had to do. I also might add that it is incredibly stupid that connecting flights have to go through security again after deplaning, it's not like we're suddenly going to have weapons or anything so why waste that time? After I sprinted across the airport and got onto the plane the pilot announced that we were waiting to hear from the airport to take off. Long story short the poor pilot was trying to figure out what was going on but no one was even answering his calls. Eventually he realized that the plane hadn't been refueled and had to get a hole of them to refuel. At one point he must have gotten really frustrated because he left the plane in search of answers as the Toronto airport wasn't giving him any. Eventually after 2 hours of sitting on the plane we refueled and took off. On top of that my travel partner didn't get her luggage, we assumed that the Toronto airport lost it somewhere or something. Overall a complete nightmare."
Cons: "The flight was somewhat delayed but everywhere it announced it was in time. Even at the luggage carousel upon arrival. Must keep the statistics up!!"
Pros: "Always love the crew."
Cons: "We were an hour and a half late taking off."
Pros: "The staff were very good jumped in by running with me in a wheelchair till we met up with a cart then next team met up and took me again in a wheelchair down elevator made it just on time"
Cons: "Not having my rides there’s that I set up and almost late"
Pros: "I made it sure my destination safely."
Cons: "When I drove up Toronto’s Pearson Airport, I expected the usual check-in process upon entry for my flight from Toronto to Warsaw (with connecting flights in Halifax and Frankfurt). However, my first surprise, despite me asking ahead of time, was that my small check-in bag would could $100 CDN instead of the $25.00 I was quoted. Despite the WestJest/Condor representatives best effort, I was told that I would, unfortunately, have to pay for the baggage despite the quote I was given. I paid the fee, was given tracking numbers, and asked for my boarding passes. I found it odd that my final flight from Frankfurt to Warsaw did not print out. I asked if this would be a problem for me and my bags arriving on timed, and I was told it would not be, as it is sometimes the case that passengers have to print out boarding passes at the next stop. I flew to Halifax and asked for a boarding pass from Frankfut to Warsaw (which I was told was still a Condor plane), and it was printed for me. Upon arriving in Frankfurt and waiting patiently, something inside caused me to ask about the status of my bags. To my utter shock, and the genuine honesty of my Condor representative in Germany, I was told that my next flight would actually be LOT (Polish Airlines) flight, and that my bags needed to be picked up from baggage claim and checked into my LOT flight. With less than 10 minutes left before boarding and the suggestion of an honest Condor official I was told not to bother trying to go to baggage claim and fill out a missing/delayed baggage claim at LOTs station in Warsaw Chopin Airport. At no point, despite my asking, was I ever informed about having to re-check bags I paid $100.00 to check-in. Moreover, at no point was I told that, on my flights from Toronto to Frankfurt, that everything from simple entertainment to food would cost significantly high cost (in Euros) to purchase. Be aware of these issues fellow travelers, and make sure you pay for food and entertainment (ahead of time) and make sure ALL your bags will be on WestJet/Condor planes or they will NOT be transferred!"
Pros: "Excellent Customer Service"
Cons: "No healthy snack options"
Pros: "Flight was very pleasant, not full, on time and seats had electrical outlets and USB ports."

Pros: "Cleaniness and timing the most."
Cons: "Snacks could have been better since this is not a short flight."
Cons: "Not to have 2 distressed cats on board meowing non stop for 10 hours."
Cons: "tout est à revoir !"
Pros: "Crew attentive. The delay was due to airport conditions in FCO, cannot be blamed on Air France."
Cons: "Food. For a 2-hour plus flight, from 11am to 1:30pm, we got 20gr pretzel sticks. This is ridiculous. Don't pretend you are not low-cost! Formerly, before the Joon failed (thank God) venture, Air France had real sandwiches around that time of the day on that line."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Polite and friendly service"
Cons: "Not necessary to buy a business class ticket, as all the new planes have standard economy seats in the front as well."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and surprisingly the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I think more attention should be paid to cleaning the plane and eeek, there was no liqueur in economy class. Music selection in entertainment should be wider too"
Pros: "Amazing crew and on time flight"
Cons: "I’m not sure that short-hop flights should serve solid food. The quality invariably disappoints. Otherwise, all is good with this flight."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful in all respects."
Cons: "Not getting everyone standing in line to board one hour and 10 minutes before scheduled departure."
Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "Overhead luggage storage jammed with luggage belonging to someone who was sitting far behind my seat."
Pros: "crew was great, seats were comfortable"
Cons: "departure board listed flight as being boarded and gate closed hour before flight leading to confusion and standing in queue for over an hour, part of food was frozen and inedible, paid for upgraded seat which turned out to be by bathroom smells were as bad as you can imagine"
Cons: "There was no entertainment and the food could be better"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seats! They were too small!"
Cons: "Check in process running smoothly and better announcement of gate change"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding. We actually departed earlier and then landed in Barcelona 15 minutes ahead of schedule. Overall a very smooth experience."
Pros: "Good food and service"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Everything was incredibly poor. Flight was delayed, entertainment was outdated and the airport staff were rude."
Pros: "The plain was ok, the crew really nice and attentive. The only “problem” would be the food, mostly for the breakfast that was awful."
Pros: "Not much but the staff"
Cons: "No room, boarding was slow, zero bag or legroom"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1h30min, so we arrived very late"
Pros: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great. The plane was not so full, so I hope business improves so we can keep it going. Very smooth flight, with good and friendly crew."
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"
Cons: "Crew not only lacked sensibility to understand the purpose of an emotional support dog but kept harassing me about the dog being tied to my seat. At some point a flight attendant even tried to touch my dog, invading my personal space. When the dog rightfully acted defensive trying to protect me, the crew member started threatening me that he would have the dog sent to cargo, the last thing a person with an emotional support pet wants to hear. Extreme lack of professionalism."
Cons: "at no point when buying my ticket did the site say zero bags were included. In fact, when purchasing it said that information about baggage was not available.Shocked to have to pay 50 dollars for one bag. I am member of Flying Blue. One bag has always been included in the price of a ticket flying transatlantic."
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: "Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "We got socked with 40 Euro fees for our carry on plus personal item being 2 lbs over. The biggest problem is they were picking and choosing which bags they weighed. 10 people behind us and before us got in without incident. Plane wasn’t even half full so they were deliberately trying to make more $."
Pros: "The food, entertainment, and service. Waited for me after almost missing my flight."
Pros: "Very poor sound quality on the earphones. Made it very difficult to watch a movie and almost impossible to listen to music."
Cons: "The airlines didn’t even notify the passengers with the connecting flight. As the arrival was little late, all the passengers have missed their connection flights in Toronto and there was no notification or communication made on the new flight. When I went to the Air France counter in the airport, the staff has gone for the day and trying to get a hold of telephone rep took 2-3 hours and I by the time I found about my new connection, I was already late. Somehow I managed to get to the Terminal 1 and when I spoke to the lady (indian) at the Check-In counter, she has refused me to Check-In because i slipped the line up. The people in the lineup didn’t have any objection and they let me go first for Check-In as I’m already late to my flight. I wante to say something to her, but I’ve controlled my frustration. Luckily the other person in the Check-In counter offered to help me Check-In. Here is my word to the Indian lady staff “F**k You B***h” - learn some people skills."

Pros: "The seats are spacious. They give you great amenities such as a toothbrush, etc. The crew was very nice. The food was also superb for airplane food."
Cons: "The check in process was terrible at SFO. We all felt like cattle being herded on. It was such a mess. The seats are surprisingly uncomfortable in premium economy. The headrest is not conducive to sleeping."
Pros: "Missed connection and it was airport not Delta that was the problem. Not a good way to start a vacation. Rating is for the Paris Airport, not the flight crew or Air France employees. Still sitting in the airport when we should be at our destination."
Cons: "Hundreds of people missed their flights. Delta had us into Paris with an hour and a half to get to connecting flight. Missed flight due to huge delay in passport approval. They seemed completely unprepared."
Pros: "The flight attendant was very nice to me. TV was very good. space was enough ."
Cons: "We had to pay for wi fi."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent. My husband and I flew economy and I saw the crew keep passengers well fed (several meals and snacks) and were attentive to everyone's needs and all done with a smile. I thought the hot towels for cleansing our hands before meals was a very nice touch!"
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "The seats were terrible, the entertainment units were poor and staff was very reluctant to give proper service."
Pros: "Food, drinks, and general service on board were all very nice"
Cons: "Airport experience at cdg was atrocious. Took more than an hour to check in and it was a complete zoo."
Pros: "I like service of AF"
Pros: "Wheel chair service at LAX is run by the airport. Their priority is to get you to your flight, not to a VIP room regardless of how early you check in."

Cons: "Very small plane."
Pros: "quick flight 10 min ahead schedule"
Pros: "Friendly crew; comfort; punctuation. Fast boarding"

Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient. Flight attendant staff were friendly and very courteous."

Pros: "Boarding efficient, Air France flight to Paris was brief and pleasant."
Cons: "Seat a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "there were problems getting the tickets issued in Rome. the worker at checkin kept us for 20 minutes without telling us what was going on. the flight left the gate on time, but then we sat for an hr before leaving. no information was given as to why the flight attendants were rude. after landing we sat for an hr on the runway waiting for a gate to be available."
Pros: "normal flight"
Cons: "i would prefer little bit more comfort."
Pros: "I have been Flying Blue platinum for six years in a row. I often wondered why I never got a complimentary upgrade... Well, I can no longer complain: I was very kindly invited to move across that curtain. Of course, in short haul (2-hours+) A321 flights, all seats are created equal, business or main cabin... But the attention was there, excellent service, and gourmet food too. The whole experience was great. I'll go on flying Air France with fewer regrets."
Pros: "The crew was nice .."
Cons: "We were very late for take off. Don't understand why No USB plug. No charging spots. No video. No movie. No radio. No wifi."
