Turkish could have waited the couple of minutes needed to get the gate open!!! and save the hassle!"

Turkish Airline changed my connection time without notifying me such that I had 5 min left for my cooection in stambul. They gave me no other option and blamed this on Kayak and kayak blamed it on the Airline leaving me with no options. I had to stay in Birlin at my own expense. Complaint filed with Turkish airline resulted in nothing. I made several calls for update and only repose I got was we will send an email to the complaint dept. and you will here in 24 hours. This has been going on for over 5 days with no contect, update or resolution. Once back in the US, I plane to file a formal complaint with FAA and more. DO NOT take this airline.

They were also really good at communicating updates like changes to the gate."

Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"

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."
Pros: "The crew were lovely and welcoming. We was given snacks and drinks on the flight which was great. Take off was a bit delayed but boarding was smooth. Couldn't complain about the comfort as was only just over an hours flight."

Pros: "KLM Is an impressive flying experience. We enjoyed the comfortable seats, the in-flight entertainment, and the food. The flight attendants are top notch as well."
Cons: "The only complaint I have regarding my most recent flight was the incredibly rude service staff whom we experienced at the front counter at check-in. After a harrowing cab ride to the airport in which our driver continuously ignored my request to follow the GPS insisting that he knew faster shortcuts, we arrived 40 minutes later than intended. Additionally he dropped us off at the wrong terminal such that we finally arrived at the KLM gate an hour later than we had planned. This was especially frustrating as we are traveling with two small children and made every effort to be punctual and leave early to be sure we got there with time to spare. Not the case today. All of that I could deal with, but when we arrived at the KLM counter, and I apologized to the attendant staff member that we were late and explained that our cab driver got lost, she responded by chastising us first in Spanish and then in broken English. She made sure to make it clear to us that it was our fault and we should not blame the Argentinian cabdriver. The cabdriver was not actually Argentinian, but that is totally besides the point. I was totally taken aback to be treated so rudely as a greeting at the airline counter. My wife share the same sentiment. Nothing like this has ever happened to us before. Thank God, every single airport personnel and of course KLM staff member on board was incredibly kind and accommodating of our children subsequent to this. It saved what otherwise could've been a terrible experience."
Cons: "Our flight from Nairobi to Lusaka was cancelled for some reason and we did not find out until we happened to log into the website to double check our itinerary. They automatically rescheduled the flight only giving us 25 minutes to reach our next flight...impossible. so, after calling, we were re-booked again and forced into a 13 hour layover in Amsterdam. Our original flight plan had 4 hours. so, because we are a family of 7 with a baby, we had to buy a hotel room to rest, costing us a lot of extra money we had not planned to spend. We contacted KLM for help with the cost but were rejected. We also lost 5 bags somewhere between Chicago and Lusaka, but after 2 days, we received them."
Pros: "had to cnx due to covid-19"

Cons: "Flight take off was delayed by almost an hour."
Pros: "Crew and hospitality"
Cons: "The crew is the most arrogant and ill mannered from all the other international airlines I have flown with - so please be ready for a very unwelcome experience. I had also worded this out as a complain to them, but received a very lukewarm and uninterested reply."
Pros: "Check-in was easy and smooth."
Cons: "Agents at check-in desk took longer time to process passengers, even though some desks had two people helping. The web check-in line moved slower than the line with passengers who had not done online check-in. When I booked my flight via kayak, I was not given an option to select seats (this was new) . I was able to indicate my seat preference but there was no followup. When I checked in online 24 hours before my flight, the only option for seats was in the middle, which I did not want, although I I knew the flight would not be full. I was able to change seats when I checked in with the agent in the airport ."
Pros: "I enjoyed the quick flight and friendly staff"
Cons: "I ordered Jain food and the whole trip from Chicago to Mumbai I’ did not have Jain vegetarian food. I did not eat for 18 hours"

Pros: "I reached safe and the flight was smooth with minimal turbulence. I did not interact much with the crew but they did their job as usual."
Cons: "There was not enough non veg food onboard and no choices. Everyone was served vegetarian towards the end. They served lunch in the beginning of the flight and then I was literally starving after 5 or 6 hours until a fellow passenger told me they had some snacks at the back. There was no communication on that."
Pros: "Every thing is good inspite of food"
Cons: "Cheep quality of food"
Cons: "Food not very good. Service used to be better in the past"

Cons: "Crew members did not care about anything, unorganized. actually tripped and fell into the aisle hit my shoulder on the arm rest of another passenger’s seat because of a crew members luggage was in the middle of the aisle and it was dark. Food was terrible. The in flight entertainment was lacking entertainment. Crew members told us we needed to hold our carry on’s, on our lap then to store it under the seat because other people have bigger bags. Even though I got to the seat first and was trying to get settled in. Crew members were eating and on their cellphones in the back the majority of the time. It was hard to get a cup of water. Flew from Chicago O’hare to Abu Dhabi."

Cons: "1) The sinks in 4 bathrooms were broken. People were still using the bathrooms although there was no sink. So people were not washing their hands which is unsanitary. 2) the food was not very good, nor the timing of it. Also sandwiches in plastic wrapping were distributed during sleeping hours and that was very disruptive. 3) the plane was older. 4) the flight was very expensive so I expected 5 star features and comfort, but it was only a 3 star for me."
Pros: "On time, entertainment, friendly crew"

Cons: "When there is a connecting flight from Domestic to international, Domestic is letting us in without any restrictions on Cabin luggage but in middle of journey in Chicago they have really troubled all the passengers, mainly they haven't checked the baggage's untill we have boarded the flight though everyone is there before 2 hrs of the and i personally asked they if my bags needs any new tags but just before they pulled everyone from the line and screwed us. which is really bad."
Cons: "They didn't allow carry on bag even it's 2 CM higher. Good was very poor, check in was nasty and too much long waiting lines even after web check in. Customer responsive ness was worst part"

Pros: "Seating and inside flight everything was good"

Pros: "All seats had power outlets"
Cons: "Plane was older than expected. Food/service was nothing exceptional."
Pros: "We boarded etihad for the first time and the experience was not good at all. Have two major complaints. The boarding area was very strict with the carry on laggage items size. My wife and I have the carry on bags, with which we boarded multiple domestic and international flights and never got a complaint from any carrier, but to my surprise, etihad staff mentioned that my bang is over sized in length and width and I need to check in. And second complaint is on Food. We selected Hindu meal, and the food was not good in taste and the options as well. We felt Air India, Qatar, emirates, Cathe Pacefic etc were better comparatively than Etihad. Staff were all good and supportive all the time."
Cons: "Food Boarding"
Pros: "Food, In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Etihad has the most ridiculous carry on baggage policy. They have this cage within which your carry on should fit in. If it does not then you have to pay $320 to check in the bag which I was forced to pay. Never seen any airline doing such a shitty thing and overcharging. Also, I think they turned the AC off during the flight and I was fanning myself for the entire 14 hour duration of the trip. WTF??"
Pros: "Amenities package with toothpaste and brush."
Pros: "Nothing was good"
Cons: "Air hostess were very rude. Her name is Iliana , none of them have name tags on. I guess that will he the first thing any passengers would expect. Food was not served as per the menu. They gave away whay ever they wish. To ask for water we had to request 4-5 times. The air hostess Iliana was bumping constanly into us, and does not even have courtesy of apologising. Because of her I could not even sleep for a second in the plane. Iliana is very racist. When multi cultural people are around, it a common sense that we have to talk in a language which is understandable by every one. She was speaking in the local language, and messing around with the fellow passengers for a small issue. She is definitely not fit as an air hostess, if she is there as a racist. there was another air hostess who as shouting at us to book business class if we need to order individually. A kid beside me was asking for an ice cream if we had a chance of purchasing it, like we do in domestic airlines. When I was requesting for the ice cream, she mentioned it thrice to book a ticket in business class. Rude absolutely very very rudeeeee. Untolerable service.....worst really worst service. There was no blanket and ear plugs kept on my seat, I request iliana thrice for blanket and ear plugs, she was like i will give you after I serve everyone, but I never had one through out my journey. This is how Eithad has trained their air hostess to handle passengers. seriously I will never ever choose eithad."
Cons: "It was delayed more than 7 hrs. We had early morning flight . They disnot allow us to get out to get food. They just sreve cice water. I had to take medicine with food."
Cons: "Flight attendant could have cared less about being there. lol"
Pros: "The plane was specious but the crew needs to improve their service ."
Cons: "Etihad doesn't have a consistent baggage policy. The line manager at the checkin did not stand by the company. Not ready to give a written statement of what they told me at the check-in counter. Customers are held hostage with the inconsistent policies and what ever they relay to you, you do not have any option but abide by that or cancel the trip."
Pros: "I was pained to see so many passengers hassled at checking time by the crew. When carry luggage with same dimensions was allowed on onward journey how can it be oversized on the return journey? I was asked to refer the website for dimensions and tod that Ethihad does not use standard carry on baggage size. Some passengers were forced to buy new carry on luggage at the airport. It is pathetic service in my opinion because the airline put so many elderly passengers with no knowledge of English to a lot of heardship."
Pros: "I like the Islamic programs, nice food, nice pillow"
Pros: "Very professional but efficient."
Pros: "Loved the cabin crew, they were friendly, helpful and attentive despite a very long journey from Chicago to Islamabad."
Cons: "One piece of luggage was is banged up that there is a large dent and the handle no longer closes...unfortunately one of the best peices of luggage. Limited staff for such a filled flight, despite their best efforts service suffered. Need a seperate section for families with children. Face mask might be offered to passangers who coughed much of the journey causing concern about sharing germs in air that is already still. Food and toilet areas were smelly towards end of flight."
Cons: "The check in agent missed to give me a tag for my hand luggage When ground crew at the gate didn't see the tag they placed it in a cage and a scale it was underweight & within dimensions, the wheel however was sticking out of the cage and for that it was $300 charge!! Let alone the humiliation.. It was pay in 5 mins or you will be booted off... I swear I found another family almost crying as they coming from a connecting flight didn't go through the check in desk and paid $1200 I have been using same handbag on airlines including etihad for 5 years without any problems ... Go figure"
Pros: "Friendly staff, legroom was OK, American's gates at ORD were fairly clean."
Cons: "Great big stain on the carpet around the end of the gates looked pretty bad."
Pros: "The food was ok."
Cons: "The crew at O'hare Airport had terrible customer service.. The boarding crew made everyone buy new carry-on bags as their current bags were apparently 'too tall' to fit, even though most of the passengers there had arrived from domestic flights without having any issue with their carry-on baggage. They said that either pay $300 to check-in your bag, or buy a new bag. Once everyone had bought new bags ($100 minimum) and ditched their old bags (created a huge pile in the corner of the boarding area), they didn't bother to check the new bags to see if they were now compliant... Never flying with Etihad!"
Cons: "Gate manager "Nadia" very rude and unprofessional in dealing with boarding passengers."
Pros: "Leg room!!!!"
Cons: "It seems Etihad hired a lot of beauties without the brain. The crew on this flight knew nothing about customer service. I had my face mask on displaying the side that states "please wake me up for meals" and of course I was not. Hours later, I woke up starving and had to go to back of the cabin to pick up a food tray since no one bothered to answer the call light. After finishing my meal, I pushed the call button 5x and no one came to collect the tray. I waved at an attendant 2x and she replied, "I'll pick it up on my way back" but she never came back. 3 HOURS LATER!!! My food tray full of waste was still sitting in front of me. At that point, the gentleman sitting in the aisle seat woke up, saw the tray still in front and he got very upset. He stopped a random attendant walking down the aisle and requested tray must picked right now! The attendant then apologize and was shocked herself that the tray sat on my table for 3 HOURS! In addition to this, the seats in the economy class were so tightly compacted and uncomfortable for a 13 hours flight. One could barely move."
Pros: "When one country allows the same size of lagguage one way .The other way down the other country doesn't allow in the last moment. They do not understand how inconvenient it would be for the travelers to adjust the lagguage ."
Cons: "It was difficult to leave planned lagguage in dust bin."
Pros: "Crew had filled overhead lockers with their bags leaving no room for ours"
Pros: "Boarding was simple and fast!"

Cons: "Don’t approach"
Cons: "Delay , rebooked on fight. Had to wait 8 hours. I needed a wheelchair .. they put Erin a remote location with a rude assistant in charge of transfers for wheel chairs . She had none. Made me walk 15 minutes to find a place to take my meds. She couldn’t care less."
Pros: "Nothing to complain about. It was a nice, calm trip."
Cons: "At least my wife and I were seated together on this trip."
Pros: "I loved the in flight service and entertainment. Also, the flight had seats that actually reclined and I was able to sleep."
Cons: "I did not like switching airlines between my flights. It caused a lot of confusion and made check in extremely difficult. In addition, my bag was lost between changing companies between flights. Not happy at all."
Pros: "Typical solid British Airways service."
Cons: "Delayd by 4 hours."
Cons: "We didn’t, have a wheel chare whan we arrived to Dublen we wait near 1 hair till they come"
Pros: "Amazing crew, kind and patient"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "When we finally took off."

Pros: "At least we were able to wait in the lounge."
Cons: "One of the jet bridges malfunctioned. Had to board >500 passengers via remaining bridge. An hour late departing."
Pros: "Priority boarding and bulkhead seating for family travelling with infant."

Cons: "12 hour delay. Very disappointed with British airways"
Cons: "Freezing cold cabin"
Pros: "Love the 747 upper deck."
Cons: "It gave me a different return date"
Cons: "Lounge needs updated."
Cons: "I had to cancel my trip due to a family emergency. The only way I could get a “partial” refund was to pay another $700. Makes no sense. I already paid over $1000 for tickets and you want me to give you another $700 in order to give me a refund."
Cons: "Fight was delayed 30 minutes so we missed our connecting flight to Madrid. We are stuck in London for the night, the food is not edible at the hotel they gave us and now we are stuck rearranging all of our future travel plans because we can't get to Madrid until tomorrow. This is our worst travel experience ever. We will never fly British Airways again."

Cons: "Once again just some measly pretzels."
Cons: "No adapters availNle for the nonstandard power outlets."
Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "Disappointed with the food choice"
Cons: "No electric outlet for charging phone or laptop TV screen was very old and barely functional"
Pros: "Nice aircraft and nice flight overall!"
Cons: "I had reserved the 2 back seats of the aircraft--a row of only those 2 seats--so I could sleep against the window and my husband would still have the legroom he needs. Unfortunately those seats on the actual aircraft ended up being in a 3 seat row and getting a window seat and middle seat. Having booked the flight 8+ months prior, we were disappointed that we had less comfortable seats than originally reserved."
Pros: "good movies"
Cons: "Middle seat, very cramped and I'm short"
Pros: "Great service, meals, movies and comfortable flight."
Pros: "Got me there"
Pros: "New plane, very comfortable seating. The headphones in biz class were awesome, forgot I was on the plane. Overall best American Airlines flight and I do fly them a lot. Also liked the dual screens option."
Cons: "The seat control in the touch pad - not conveniently placed"
Cons: "baggage was lost"
Cons: "Nothing that could be controlled just a lot of turbulence. It would be nice for the pilot to reassure passengers"
Pros: "The gate agent"
Cons: "Everything was great about this flight, except that I had a row of seats that would not allow the arm rest to go down. So even though I had 2 empty seats to my left I could not utilize them, which would have made the flight so much better. When asked I was told that the "curve" of the plane would not allow it. This should have been mentioned when I booked and chose those seats."
Cons: "It was extremely hot on the plane. for the first 30 minutes there was no ac available and there was little to no help from the staff. I asked for water to cool myself down and ov waited about ten minutes to get it after hitting my help button multiple times. The flight attendants may have been overwhelmed with the requests as there were many just like me who struggled so they came off very rude. The plane was also not updated at all - not personal entertainment and once again, no ac/air for people to control."
Pros: "Everything was great! Thank you so much!"
Pros: "Crew where very nice"
Cons: "Lack of room"
