Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Since not enough room in "What could have been better". For as long as my second flight was, from Dubai to Boston, the seats in coach were criminal!!! Way to narrow, especially if sitting next to a large person. Not nearly enough distance to seat in front of you, can't even bend over to reach some-"
Cons: "thing on the floor. The seats do NOT recline enough to be able to relax & get shuteye. It would have been really nice to have a footrest of some type, even busses have those! I am a small person, 5'1'' and 110 lb. Consider not having such a huge gap between 1st class and economy. Way over crowded."

Pros: "nice people, good food"
Cons: "the process in Dubai for boarding is strange, first they make you go into a smaller room where there aren't always enough chairs, then you have to wait there until your section is called. Why not just do it all at the same time?"
Cons: "Vegan food was served with BUTTER how can this be vegan? NEED MORE Healthy options instead of Pan cakes etc made of Enriched Flour... Upgrades have become.alsmost nil. Emirates is making a huge profit but is not sharing with its passengers... had to wait one whole hour to get our baggage"

Pros: "The staff at the check in counter at JFK was very friendly and accommodating, much like the crew on the flight. Boarding was orderly and efficiently executed, although some announcement about the 30-minute boarding delay would have been appreciated. Onboard the seating was quite comfortable compared with other airlines I have travelled on and the crew was exceptional in their service - really customer-focused. The meals were tasty with unlimited snacks and complimentary drinks. Generally, I would highly recommend this airline."
Cons: "The TV and remote controls could be updated. Touch screen was largely slow to respond and the whole system could be more intuitive."
Cons: "Services must be improved as far as hospitality is. Concern"

Cons: "Long bus ride to the aircraft - thought we were driving to Muscat!"
Pros: "Special ordered food was good, felt like we ate too many times but it was a 15h flight. Extra legroom seats in exit row are great, but other passengers stand in front of you to wait for toilets. Not sure if entirely worth the money for that reason only. Entertainment options were plentiful."
Cons: "Other passengers that treat the public space of an airplane like their own living room or bedroom. Disgusting and rude. I'm sorry the flight attendants have to put up with poor behavior. Amenity kit seems a bit skimpy for economy class. Toothbrush was falling apart and not enough toothpaste. Bring your own on board."

Cons: "Delay 1 hour!"
Pros: "Food good movie selections and Nice staff"

Cons: "the entertainment"
Pros: "The crew on the flight were very nice"
Cons: "As our first flight got delayed, me and 28 other pallengers flying to israel told the airline agents that we would miss our connection flightfrom turkey to israel. The supervisor assured us that we have nothing to worry about, as the second plane would wait as we are many passengers.however when we landed in turkey the connection flight had already left without us. When trying to speak to turkish airline representatives about getting a new flight, they were super UNhelpful, we waited in very long lines and were required so go to a few different parts of the airport to get a new ticket, a process that was not friendly at all and very frustrating. After about 2 hours of waiting on lines, i got a flight that required me to wait 7 hours in the airport and measley voucher for a very small fast food meal. When i asked to be admitted to the lounge (as i waited 7 hours in the airport due to the airlines mistake), they did not agree to grant me access. When i asked to at least get the wifi code from the lounge so i can tell my familly that i am stuck on turkey, this was also rejected. While waiting in the airport, i spoke to many other people on other flights who had been stuck in the airport under very simillar circumstances, some even worse than mine. I also have many friends who have experiences simillar experiences with turkish airlines. If you are looking for a reliable flight, that will get you to your destination on time and will help you out when a problem occurs, Turkish airlines is deffinetelly NOT the flight for you. I personally will never fly with them again after the way i was treated."
Pros: "Crew were very nice and professional."
Cons: "The flight from Istanbul to TLV was scary. The Pilot hit the brakes half in the middle of the take off due to a "technical error". It was very scary, even the flight attendant was in panic. Plus, the food was uneatable. Hope to never fly with Turkish Air again."
Pros: "The crew, as usual on Turkish airlines, was wonderful. Excellent service and patience.Warmly recommend Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "The flight itself was delayed, the boarding was a disaster waiting an hour in a closed off area with little air-conditioning and zero amenities, the plane uncomfortable and the entertainment system was a joke. To be honest I was surprised because I enjoy flying Turkish, it's an excellent airline with great service. This flight was a disaster"
Pros: "There wasn't anything particularly special about this flight to make it stand out from other airlines. It was just a short 2 hour flight and had everything you needed."
Cons: "At check in, the agent said she had put me in the exit row, but I was actually just behind it."
Pros: "On my way back my flight before was delayed. When i arrived to the flight people were still boarding but i was told that they knew my flight delayed therefore they aold my ticket."
Cons: "I run to the flight and fall on the way and they didnt even have a first aid kit at the gate, and they sold my ticket!!!"
Pros: "Excellent and cooperative staff. It was a smooth flight."
Pros: "Security at the Ataturk airport. Airtight and curious. No wonder terrorists could only strike outside."
Cons: "Departure time is always ten tative with Turkish. Even though they clearly were expecting a late departure, passengers weren't notified. When boarding time was pushed back 30 minutes, it was already 22 minutes overdue (and it started much later then eve n the pushed back time). Terrible standards/"
Cons: "The fact the airline didn't compensate us even though we missed our connection flight"
Cons: "There is no free Wi Fi on Ataturk airport. They claim 2 hours, but it doesn't support Croatian 385 country access nr."
Cons: "My Luggage did not make it, I don't have any information about it :) Lot of people did not get their Luggage"
Cons: "There e was NO Turkish air representative on the ground upon arrival. We needed a wheel chair the it was not arranged."

Cons: "Connecting flight did not have my luggage from previous flight."
Pros: "Service, food and the entertainment system was great"
Pros: "Free food and movies for a 1.5 hour flight, amazing!!"
Cons: "We were flying to JFK from TLV via IST. First flight was canceled and then re-scheduled after landing we were stuck for more than 3 hours inside airplane in Istanbul, then we were stuck inside the plane for 6 hours !!!!! Nightmare"
Pros: "Pretty much nothing. I liked that nothing bad happened to my suitcase."
Cons: "I ordered vegan food on time and was told I will have vegan food on the flight, but for an unknown reason, my name was not on the list and I wasn't given any food. Not even the bread I have asked for from one of the crew members. Both boarding and leaving the plain were a hustle using a bus. The entertainment on the plain was beyond the worst one I have ever experienced. 8 radio channel that some of them are the same and some of them have one channel on one side and a different channel on the other. I had to use my earphones (only one of the pair) from my side and another set of earphones from the empty seat next to me, just to barely hear the same music. Also the plugs were not good, so eventually I gave that up too. POOR FLIGHT!"
Cons: "Another 7 hr delay and then the most crowded and stuffy airport without wifi - the hub! You can't even find a place to sit down for your 7hrs, except on the ground."
Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"
Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."
Cons: "When its rain we shouldn’t walk to the air plain"
Cons: "Seats in economy section are very close together . There is not enough room for knees...especially for such a long trip."
Pros: "Seats were super comfortable, bigger than most planes with extra leg room. Food was excellent and fresh, amazing Dutch cheese sampler was divine. No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."

Cons: "Travelled business class and was ace experience"

Pros: "General flight journey"

Pros: "Lovely crew, very helpful"
Pros: "Very pleased with KLM - efficiency all round and especially the baggage handling at Schipol swhere I had 20 minutes to transfer and my baggage came back with me to the UK which is no mean feat given the hustle and bustle of such a large airport"
Cons: "No downsides at all"
Cons: "The overall travel was good, no wifi and the entertainment system had a faulty headphone connection, and no place to charge devices other than through a USB port"
Pros: "The crew!!"
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"
Pros: "The constant smile conferred by flight attendants through the entire flight."
Cons: "The boarding was a bit disorderly. Lanes for zones 3 and 4 were not clearly indicated."
Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"
Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."
Pros: "short, sweet and to the point. 1+ hour flight is usually an easy hop."
Pros: "Nice crew pilot food and beverage"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Cons: "Services was pretty weird .. Perse or crew Leader was ok But the assistent Young one was Really bad.. aptitud and not friendly at all."
Pros: "Friendly in-flight personell"
Cons: "Approx. 1 hour delay, which was not the airline's fault (construction on runways)"
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist! She asked me to move from a seat because she wanted another guy ( obviously from her country ) to take it! Rude and racist."
Pros: "Overall everything was ok."
Cons: "Not that I cared at the time but having been asked for a rating on “entertainment” - there was none. Cheap and cheerful really. No extras over the likes of RyanAir."
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "Pretty basic one hour flight so there's not much to complain about or praise about. I got some sleep which was good."
Cons: "The crew had their general Dutch aloofness on form. Chatted to one of the stewardesses in Dutch up until she saw I had a British passport then she decided she could only speak English to me."
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
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"
Cons: "Late Cabin extremely warm Full flight and centre seat means no room to relax or carry out work"
Cons: "Long stop over at Schiphol. Too Long!!!!"
Cons: "magazines very dog eared and some badly torn"
Pros: "The crew were just amazing, such lovely male stewards! They were helpful and friendly and generally wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment was quite dated and didn't have new movies etc"
Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."
Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
Cons: "With skyteam elite status cannot select free upgrade from economy to premium economy unless it is 30hrs before boarding for this code share which is actually a KLM flight"
Pros: "We really liked the KLM people, from the check in crew to the flight attendants."
Cons: "Because of slow boarding process flight was delayed by 15 minutes. I had short connection in Amsterdam."
Pros: "It was a decent train ride."
Cons: "Stating it’s a train from the beginning and not having to go from one train station to another."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "1-2 +cms leg space"
Pros: "The seats were spacious and the crew was wonderful. The crew actually made the long flight more tolerable. Will seek out Delta/Air France for further international flights."
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable."
Cons: "My boyfriend and I were required to gate check our carry-on luggage which required us to go through customs in Paris to get to our bag and re-enter security for our connecting international flight. I am unsure why this was the case as other passengers brought the same size luggage. Very upsetting."
Cons: "No leg room at all, cant believe those seats met legal standard. The plane smelled, boarding was a nightmare because too many people had big bags. An announcement had been madd that vags would be collected, but obviously were not."
Pros: "Crew great."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great"
Cons: "seats very uncomfortable, boarding was a mess in Paris, priority luggage was annoying and made us miss our connection flight (as well as numerous delays)"
Cons: "Lost my luggage."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and always came around with water."
Cons: "The “vegetarian” option was tuna which isn’t vegetarian and there was no vegetarian snack. With the hundreds of dietary and religious food restrictions you would think having a vegetarian option would be much more attainable.. They also didn’t make an announcement about our flight being late."
Cons: "Booked with my partner. Ended up sitting apart. Not good"
Pros: "Intranet meant I could watch movies on my iPad"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Intranet wifi meant I could watch entertainment on my iPad"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
Cons: "There was no entertainment and there was a lot of annoyed passengers and flight attendants"

Pros: "The flight crew on the flight was amazing. Went beyond basic needs and requirements."
Pros: "Good selection of movies"
Pros: "Staff was so helpful and attentive to our needs.Providing service with a smile."
Pros: "That we were heading home. Nice seats. Good food. Lots of entertainment choices. Power plugs ( USB and European power) were appreciated. Wine as a choice with meal was appreciated and brandy after the meal."
Cons: "Some of the shows and movies were a bit 'trashy'. Long flight. I was in the middle seat next to an inattentive octanegarian who was nice but kept calling the flight crew to fix her mess up of the video system. No air controls on this plane - so it was overly warm. 10 hours of overly warm makes for a stinky passenger. Oof."
Cons: "Because of change in plane..bad choice of seat for long legs of husband...then late in Atlanta and very late into DC"
Cons: "I will not use o recommend to anyone to buy a ticket with the agency, at the airport in China we were treated like criminals because as they said we were not register in the system as passengers it was really a nightmare"
Pros: "We flew with our special needs child without requesting any particular accommodations except for gluten free meals. The gate staff and flight crew identified him and allowed us special bordering that facilitated the process. That act of kindness is a rare experience on our part. Thank you Air France staff!"
Cons: "Everything. The crew seemed to skip over me and my husband multiple times. So we sat there with garbage the whole flight. My entertainment was broken and they had no solution but giving me $30 to use at the duty free shop the same day as the flighty. I paid extra for premium seating in an exit row and that was their idea of fair compensation. The crew ran out of vegetarian food so I didn’t eat anything but cold stale bread. The crew was non-existent most of the flight."
Cons: "Plane left more than 40 minutes late with no explanation or apology."
Cons: "I am not sure why this happened, but our daughter, travelling away from home for the first time, was targeted at every step of her journey. From the terminal in DCA to Cincinnati, to CDG. Delta/Air France clearly singled her out. i am outraged! I have traveled many, many times and have sent hundreds of students on nearly the same trip -- and none have had as rough a time as she had. They will be hearing from me."
Pros: "I like fly attendant who served us meal"
Cons: "I didn’t like that space between each seat is small"
Cons: "Please see comments above about this flight."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and always gave the feeling that they want the customers to feel comfortable and enjoy the flight. One of the crew members even offered me to move to an emergency exit seat (without me asking to move) because I am tall. Amazing!"
Cons: "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."
Pros: "The plane arrived in New York smoothly"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and have no information as to where it is. It has been 3 days and no Information. There was only one meal for the flight and alcoholic beverages were not included."

Cons: "Not checking my carry on weight at check in then letting me walk all the way to security to then check my bag and tell me to go back to check in then the counter is closed and they tell me it's too late and that I need to get ride of my things so that my bag is under weight and barely making the flight"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Food was AWFUL! Better to serve nothing"

Cons: "Flight left late The seats are small and crowded There are no entertainment options"
Pros: "Traveled fron SFO to CDG on AF in business class on an A 380. Lounge in SFO was smallish and not many choices in the food bar. Boarding was smooth. my second ride on A 380 in business and this trip reminded me quickly why I did not care for the A 380 on my previous trip. It is a huge plane with a huge sized business class which makes the cost less worth it compared to a Boeing. The crew were extremely helpful and caring. The food was acceptable. The seats on the plane were not comfortable in the lying position. Took a cab to our hotel in Paris (1st Arr) for a flat 50 euros. No meters."
Cons: "Arriving in CDG and facing a slow immigration with the passengers of this huge plane. I didn't care for the baggage delivery system. We were waiting for an hour only to realize that the arrival port for our luggage was changed."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. Plus I didn't get my baggage at the end."
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Too many business class seats and the plane is so big it basically feels like flying on coach. You have two seats next to the window so it's exactly the same when trying to get up than in economy class with a passenger stuck next to you"
Cons: "No entertainment or usb plugsto charge."

Cons: "Simple food - very small amounts. No entertainment."

Cons: "no screens bad AC bad food"
Cons: "I didn't expect everything to need paying for, even water, considering we spent 6 and half hours in the air with FlyDubai, I had the wrong currency and a non credit card, so even though I was desperate for water I was not aloud one as I couldn't pay for it, the crew just said "sorry", so I went a few hours really uncomfortable"
Pros: "Awesome experience from manchester to dubai on emirates,outclass flight/crew/journey"
Cons: "Horrible transit in dubai,they keep taking you around in buses where u hav to stand in a bus to upto 40 minutes at a time,ridiculous,Terminal 2 in dubai is a shame,crowded like a bus station,And fly dubai planes have zero leg room"
Pros: "crew outfits"
Cons: "no entertainment, no food, delays, terrible dubai terminal for 8+ hours- you certainly do not get what you pay for."
Pros: "relatively clean"
Cons: "I was NOT impressed with this airline. I have never been on a transcontinental flight that did not provide on board entertainment or food. I thought the absence of both was ridiculous. Plus I went to try to read the news option- which was actually free and the papers were from 2014!!!! WTH?!There is no room to put everything- no pouch in the seat ahead of you so nowhere to put the food or drink that you have to bring on board or any of your travel things. I have no idea why. The FlyDubai terminal in Dubai is also quite lacking- I felt like I was trapped in crappy restaurant. I'm not certain that I will ever use use this airline again- not impressed."
Cons: "The crew was incredibly rude. One flight attendant yelled at me to take my seat even after i told him the seat was wet. He insisted the plane didn't come from anywhere so it could not be wet. I showed him how it was so wet that it soaked my pants and told him it smelled like beer. He seemed annoyed i was bothering him and said he would replace the seat cushion. It took ten minutes before he replaced the cushion. When he did he threw it over the seatbelt preventing me from bucking up. I told him the arm rest and side of the plane were sticky from whatever had spilled. He ignored me and walked away. Another attendant came by and told me to buckle up before landing. I explained the situation that I did not have access to the belt to her for the second time and she rudely told me to move my seat. When I requested a new seat before the flight the first attendant told me no that was the seat I had paid for. Ignoring the fact that I had also paid for a dry seat. Now when the flight is landing my safety suddenly became a priority. Its safer to say I will not be recommending this airline."
Pros: "I like nothing"
Cons: "Even planket on the air craft for the frozen A.c. for old handicap pepole was paid !!! Not only bad survices no any surviced If ane passenger suffocated i think they will request paid bottle of water"

Pros: "a good service"
Pros: "The seats are very bad. There was a problem between the navigator and the passenger because of the seats"
Pros: "The only thing negative on my trip is flydubai terminal"
Pros: "FlyDubai knows customer service. I would have given 15 stars out of 10 if it let me. I flew economy but was treated like first class. I will only book with FlyDubai for all trips. See you guys next month when I return to Dubai."
Cons: "They did not give us food or drink, , They were selling everything even water."
Cons: "No food or entertainment."
Pros: "Nice FZ team fast and responsive"
Cons: "Not organized crowd and FZ team not capable to organize the change of seats"
Cons: "Crew was very polite. No complimentary entertainment for such a long flight. Entertainment consoles put off lots of heat and not consistently working."
Pros: "Flydubai's price and direct flight options to otherwise-underserved destinations are great."
Cons: "Flydubai has the least comfortable seats I've ever flown in. The pitch and width are well below-average. Baggage allowances are low compared to other airlines. This was my 5th Flydubai flight and I have not had an in-seat entertainment screen that worked yet. The food options are limited, and they're usually out of stock."
Pros: "Staff was great, food and drinks were good,"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing,"
Cons: "The seat was soaking wet due to faulty air conditioning. The screen was broken so I did not enjoy the TV that I paid for. Many of the menu items were not available."
Pros: "Keep it that way"
Cons: "I would like to see keep the way your now all the time thanks much"
Pros: "The terminal we were waiting in, not organised well, very messy, smelling very bad except in lounge that Cost 40$ for 2 hours with discount. So I'm having a layover 12 hours, I pay 240$ just I can sit in a non smelling place and eat some food. Adjust some of these and would be great. Other terminals have so much to offer in same airport, over rated Dubai airport."
Cons: "The restrooms at in Dubai are terrible"
Pros: "I got to my destination on time."
Cons: "The cramped, uncomfortable seats. The cold, non-engaged staff."
Pros: "The only thing I liked about this airline was the flight they had available the day I needed it, and the price was reasonable. But the flight was oversold, so I wasnt able to take it anyways."
Cons: "Fly Dubai check in at Dubai Airport is run by non-employees. My wife and I waited 1.5 hours in line. The staff helps other customers who are late for their flight cut in front of the line, and therefore make everyone else late for their flight. We finally arrive to the front and are told our flight has been oversold, and that it is full. We asked to be put on another flight and they said the next ones leave tomorrow. We were told we had to go wait in another line to arrange a flight or refund. We waited in that line for almost 1 hour, and the employee gave us an email address written on a post it note, and said if we wanted a refund to email them. Just an awful airline. Some other passengers wanted the flight the next day and Fly Dubai offered them a hotel for the night but said the hotel is full. The airline has an awful check in system, awful customer service, and has yet to offer us a refund, or even reply to the email we sent them six days ago. Regardless of their ticket price I will never fly with this airline ever again."
Pros: "The only thing that I liked about this flight was the it took off and landed safely."
Cons: "The flight was hot, the attendants were rude, and seemed to feel as though they were burdened a passenger requested something. They did not offer water to anyone (especially elderly people) when the A/C went out. They also lost my bags, and would not deliver them."
