Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment. Seats were okay."
Cons: "Our Kochi to Dubai flight was late, the bus at Dubai airport was extremely slow and we reached Dubai airport two minutes prior to the closing of the boarding of the onward flight. We had to literally run to catch our onward flight to Boston. However, the ground staff at Dubai were excellent, called the gate staff to alert them about us and managed to get us on board. Surprisingly, our luggage was also loaded on to the same flight and we couldn't believe we got the luggage in Boston! Overall, all went well."
Cons: "Delayed flight and the procedures too very long."

Pros: "On time on each leg of the journey. Excellent food, excellent service. In flight Internet available for just US $2 for duration of the journey. Thoughtful meal selections and gifts"
Cons: "Seat selection is very constrained 48 hours before journey, even for passengers booked together on same ticket. Would strongly recommend that automatic default seating selection for passengers booked on the same ticket should be for all of them to be seated together, right from the time the ticket is paid for rather than having to individually select where each passenger sits."
Cons: "service from a crew member. she was not obliging. we asked for blanket and she responded whenever i am free will give you.which never happened. and she was giving extra good service to the passenger in front of me . she was shouting at passengers as if we are animals"
Pros: "Free movies!!! Blanket and pillow provided. Also the crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Switching of terminals to Fly Dubai"
Cons: "No information re cancelled flight, board at Dubai indicated flight delayed with no time or boarding gate. Over 300 people at Emirates / Qantas customer service desk and 2 operators. Only found out that the flight may be cancelled from an email from kayak. Eventually got on a flight 6 and a half hours later. When leaving the board still said ek5101 delayed. I am sure if left up to Emirates / Qantas we would still be sitting at Dubai looking at the board."

Pros: "The attendants are friendly, helpful and responded to my needs graciously. I also love the uniforms, especially the hats. The food was decent and was offered at appropriate intervals. I like the plane too."
Cons: "I had reserved an aisle seat by phone but at the airport I was assigned a window seat. No problem---the attendants were helpful and a nice man changed seats with me. I had difficulty with the headset, couldn't get it comfortable and had difficulty adjusting the volume. No big problem considering how good the service was in general. I didn't like a 6 hour wait at Kennedy on my flight to Milan which was dreadfully late."
Pros: "Both the crew and the persons in reception were really helpful!"
Cons: "The bus connection from runway to dubai airport wasn't comfortable. It took 40 mins to get to the airport and still I didn't have a good support to hang onto during the journey (I was standing)."

Pros: "Emirates defines economy class .. No one else comes close"
Cons: "Food was pathetic"
Pros: "thanks for stuff"

Pros: "excellent service."
Cons: "having to pay for entertainment."
Cons: "Your crew didn't smile. They didn't seem very happy. The food was ok, but different from normal American cuisine. I didn't appreciate the crew's comments to some of my fellow passengers about how they we wouldn't eat the food. I would have liked to have been offered more to drink. Additionally I'm glad the crew is fond of one another, but they were loud and distracting. They were nicer to one another than the people flying. I didn't like being barked at and being given confusing directions regarding exiting the plane. Overall I wasn't impressed and would prefer to not fly with your airline again."
Pros: "Food was not available for flight."
Cons: "Many delays boarding plane. No entertainment at all on a flight longer than 3 hours is insane. Flight crew are great, though."
Cons: "This is the last time I perches a flight ticket from you."
Cons: "Drops coming down from the Air condition system"
Pros: "Good. Thank you."
Pros: "Half empty plane"
Cons: "Food n movies"
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable seat"
Cons: "The flights was considerably delayed, due to Lufthansa's operation issues. Information provided at the terminal was nearly non existent and the posted information on the extent of the delay was inaccurate and not updated. All in all, not effective and non communicative handling."
Cons: "Another snack midflight."
Cons: "All great"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Didn't have the vegetarian meal I ordered"
Cons: "My sun glasses were stolen out of my luggage !!"

Pros: "Very good care ofrom the staf Not cold"
Cons: "The breakfest was terible. Not tacty a t all. No entertainment. We took 2 difernt meals and both bad"
Cons: "Terrible boarding. Finally we were almost 1 hour delay in departure"
Cons: "Bought these tickets almost a year in advance. Never given the option to select seats. Both my husband and I were stuck in the middle seats or not together on each leg of our flight. Food was horrible on every leg. Husbands tv did not work. I am petite and seats too small even for me. never again will o give this airline my money."
Cons: "Guy next to me died. Emergency landing. They refused to hold the gate for my connection in Frankfurt for 15 minutes."
Pros: "Accurate. Friendly."
Cons: "My suitcase weal broke during the flight!!"

Cons: "One hour in late"

Pros: "The flight crew was amazing.I recommend this service to anyone who's traveling"
Pros: "Friendly. And efficirnt crew"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. No entertainment, even though there is an app for it, it did not work, and the crew had no idea regarding it."
Pros: "1. I am gold status and I had to wait a lot of time in the line people without gold membership who came 30 minute after me finished checkin before me. 2. The plan didn't have any Entertainment system. 3. I didn't got my food as well."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1.5 hrs and then completely canceled. They never gave us a reason as to why it as canceled and when they canceled it, they directed the entire group of the people on the plane to 4 different gates before getting a gate agent to tell us that we had to leave the gate and go back to the ticket counter and start over again. The security in Israel is very intense, so this was a big hassle. Then they only had 3-4 gate agents to rebook all 300+ people on the flight so we waited in like for 3 hours."
Pros: "I flew economy class both ways across the Atlantic in Feb and March, 2017. I took 6 Lufthansa flights. The crew is so professional and attentive. They don't skimp on drinks! The seats seem bigger...or maybe it is more leg room than some other airlines. I did not upgrade and was very comfortable."
Cons: "Well, the flight from Frankfurt to Tel Aviv both ways and there were only 2 bathrooms for a pretty big flight."
Pros: "This was still a Lufthansa flight. Meaning there was a lot of leg room, the food was nice and the staff was great."
Cons: "The only thing i did not like is that for such a long flight (5 hours), also being an international flight, i was expecting an entertainment center, but there was none."
Pros: "Service & food were good in business class."
Cons: "The business class seats were identical to coach, with no leg room."
Pros: "I was rescheduled on another flight improperly"
Cons: "Flight did not take off staff was rude unhelpful I won't use them again"
Cons: "Checking in in Tel Aviv was the worst experience I have had in checking in. The ladies just sat there, explained almost nothing, gave no eye contact. Finally, they told me the flight was overbooked and that was why I was waiitng. They offered nothing else--as if I had done something wrong (the impression they gave me), rather than Lufthansa. I waited a full 1 1/2 hours. No other explanation. At the very end, when they finally put me on a flight, they chastised me for not checking in online---this was NEVER offered to me by Lufthansa on my flight there or on the return. With other airlines they always send me an email to check in online ahead of time. Lufthansa did not. I could not have been more disappointed with this checking in experience with Lufthansa. Again, the worst in my life and would be cause for me not to recommend Lufthansa to others. Otherwise, the flight itself and the actual crew were great. So disappointing to have such an unprofessional check in experience."
Pros: "Food was great!"
Cons: "Lackluster movie selection, internet was a rip off and barely worked."
Cons: "seats are way too close to each other."
Cons: "It was late, we had connection to Berlin and we were in a hurry And forgot things on the plain. They didn't make arrangements to help us be on time for our connection. We had to run. My name is Dan Chevion. Can we get back the items we forgot on the plain?"
Pros: "Attentive crew, despite an almost-full flight"
Cons: "Airbus seating is terrible - seats uncomfortable, seat pitch too small"
Cons: "terrible flight bad food, the options were finished by the time they reached line 30. the entertainment had 3 old movies in English. wishing the flight will finish because it was very jumpy, after all this it ended in an emergency landing. Lufthansa was very disappointing."
Pros: "good seats."
Cons: "crowded smelly gate, horrible seats, overcrowded bus out to the plane, which was late. to be fair, this is probably not Lufthansa's fault, unless their arrangement with Tel-Aviv airport always results in these awful gate assignments. we then stood outside on the tarmac on those external roll-up stairways. for a good 15 minutes. waiting to get inside the plane. Full sun exposure in the middle of summer. no sign of the crew. WHY."
Cons: "They allow you to pull out your own laptop and access their wifi and entertainment content but provide no outlets to charge your device to do so"
Pros: "Once we were in the air (see below), everything was very good."
Cons: "Poor organisation at the airport (maybe notGulfAir's fault). Flight slightly delayed. Gate changed at last minute, board said "Boarding now", but we then waited something like 30 minutes at the new gate to actually start boarding."
Cons: "Was a good experience"
Pros: "Airplane very comfortable"
Pros: "I' not sure which flight this relates to. I've taken economy and business class and clearly the business class is better but economy is fine. The crew were good in both classes and whilst the food in business was better I didn't have a problem in economy either."
Cons: "Check in was fine and very friendly but boarding could be better particularly in business. At Heathrow it was a bit chaotic as all classes seemed to be mixed up so it was difficult for priority passengers such as disabled to get through everyone crowded up to the desks and the same applied for business class as well. The IFE wasn't too bad but it could be better. Bahrain airport is a mess and the boarding gates seem to be more like corridors with seats in them so it's difficult again when they call for business class passengers as unless you are already at the front you have to try to work your way through. I believe the airport is being rebuilt. If so then things will probably improve. I'm not sure why there needs to be 2 security checks within a few yards of each other when transiting between flights. they don't have this problem in Doha."
Cons: "Economy sets are too tight and cramped. Cup holder was good for nothing, i tried to put my soft drink bottle in it and it slipped right out the bottom and when I tried to put a cup of water in it supplied by the crew it wouldn't fit! When I reclined my seat to sleep the passenger behind me pushed my seat hard back to upright position. When I turned around to ask why the rude response I realized that he was a tall fellow and his knees were already touching the back of my seat so when I reclined it, it hurt him and he had no where to move his legs. I couldn't do or say much as I understood his misery and therefore kept my seat up the whole way for 5 hours! The flight was full and neither of us could relocate to another seat."
Cons: "Better coordination between stewards."
Cons: "Boarding took too long"
Cons: "Lovely new Dreamliners. Best TV screen but poor content/choice of shows. Rest good."
Cons: "The men from the crew was not friendly at all"
Cons: "Boarding, crew, seating, bus gate"
Cons: "Late arrival of the plane. Seat not comfort, basic serviceS"
Pros: "how convenient it is"
Pros: "Nothing much I liked other than it was a regular (A321) plane service: nothing stood out for me. Nevertheless, still would travel with them because of the competitive price."
Cons: "The (A321) plane could done with an overhaul, but understandable as to why it is the way it is; for the purpose short hauls. Besides, the flight was only for an hour. Other than that, nothing much more to say."
Cons: "Too much money taken by the airline even though I had bought insurance"
Pros: "Ease of checking, smooth landing, Gold frequent flyer card special preference"
Cons: "The old aircraft which is almost reached its limits"
Cons: "There was some delay."
Pros: "fast boarding, got the luggage quickly."
Cons: "Food was ok but may be improved still specially AVML."
Pros: "Subcontinent flights are substandard.. Crew are indifferent.. Taking this flight only because it is direct non stop"
Cons: "Subcontinent flights are substandard.. Crew are indifferent.. Taking this flight only because it is direct non stop"
Pros: "They delivered as requested"
Cons: "They are probably overworked with minimum crew as they are not too friendly and don’t seem happy when a passenger makes requests"
Pros: "لم يعجبني شي"
Cons: "اخر مره اسافر علي هذه الشركه"
Cons: "I head phones I didn’t get my bags I have been waiting for the past 3 hours at the air port and I haven’t received my bags yet and I think I will Waite for 3 more hours"
Pros: "People, culture and peace"
Cons: "Traffic and crowd"
Cons: "The plane is too small I couldn't go to the path room because the floor was busy by the cabin crew because of the food and the drink service also the Bahrain air port is too poor regarding Gulf air agents in Manama, this is my last flight with gulf air and I will not recommend to my friends."
Pros: "I was rerouted entirely to fly with Austrian Air, and only landed 2 hours later than scheduled, which was nice."
Cons: "My Gulf Air flight from Bangkok to Paris was delayed 7 hours which would make me miss my connection to Paris in Bahrain...and they wanted to put me on a new flight that would have me layover in Bahrain for more than 18 hours, and landing in Paris 24 hours later than planned. I politely said no and asked them to find me something else, and they did--so that was good. But the suggested alternative for a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous. Also, the 7 hour delay was never explained and no other flights were delayed, so I guess it was something wrong with the plane?"
Pros: "In general, good and clean."
Cons: "The crew wasnot welcoming and helpful"
Pros: "Liked the professional boarding Very punctual take off & landing Very polite ground crew & helpful"
Cons: "Seats were cramped on the return leg Miles not automatically added.Has to be done at the airport .Forgot to do it with all the hustle & bustle. Food service by crew could be better.Needs more finesse System did not allow to order vegetarian food. Food not very palatable"

Pros: "I really liked the crew treatment, they were polite and we well served by them ."
Cons: "The long queue infront Gulf air check in desk in the airport! People who came early that had to wait for a long time to have their boarding pass! I think increasing the number of employers in that area will be a great idea ."
Pros: "Service in the plane"
Cons: "The crew at the check in were mean... bizarre regulation that don't apply to any other airline. Refuse to give a wheelchair for an elderly claiming she has to book it in advance.. what if the person broke their legs that day??? None sense. And the baggage regulation are just not clear and confusing."
Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS GOOD AND COMFORTABLE ON THE FLIGHT."
Cons: "THE CONNECTION TIME WAS SHORT BETWEEN FLIGHTS AND WE HAD TO RUN FROM GATE 11 TO 32 TO CATCH THE FLIGHT THERE DIDN'T HAVE THE SMALL CARS WHICH MOVE THE PASSENGERS . AND IT WAS VERY LONG WAY FROM GATE 11 TO 32"
Cons: "No selection for beverage. No tomato juice!"
Cons: "We were in row 42 and there were at least 15 rows behind us, and they ran out of chicken option in food."
Cons: "Bag lost in Bahrain"
Cons: "American Airlines was late, so Gulf Air just washed their hand off us. We were left to fend for our selves. Gulf Air is the world's single most worst airline. It was only due to the wonderful service of American Airlines and then British Airways that we could reach Delhi."
Pros: "It was as expected satisfed"

Cons: "The set it was so bad"
Pros: "The flight was ok"
Cons: "My husband and son both ordered a wheel chair because I have rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia and when I arrived in turkey they said there was no order for one. I walked through the airport at a snails PA e and since I arrived I have been very sick."
Cons: "1 hour delay nearly cost me my connection no assistance provided"
Cons: "Never in time and the POS machine on board never works with debit cards or cards without PIN code .... it didn’t work with more than half of the passengers on board!!! Oh they also charged me 47 euros for just 4 kgs of extra weight!!! Unacceptable !"
Cons: "Landing was very rocky"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The mass"
Pros: "The fares are cheap and they charge for luggage. Check-in was smooth, boarding was as well, and the crew was smiling just a bit. But then that's the Turkish attitude I have noticed all these years. Not bad over all. My luggage made it all the way to my destination with no problems, even though there was a connection flight."
Cons: "The seats did not recline which makes it a little difficult to relax if the flight is longer than two hours. No entertainment and no food served (not even water) unless you pre-order or purchase it in flight."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The seats"
Cons: "Extremely cramped, non-reclining seats, no pocket in seats, not even a glass of water, no entertainment options of any kind, checked-in suitcase arrived damaged."
Cons: "Old plane, really crowded seats, the air crew doesn’t bother to clean the lavatories. Those who are working that is as the toilets up front were out of order..."

Cons: "Late boarding for unknown reason."
Pros: "As noted above"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Everything was on time, crew was nice, a lot of empty seats"
Cons: "Noisy children..."
Cons: "Food not included in price of ticket. Food offered for a fee was very limited. But then again the flight was less than 3 hours."
Pros: "Fast boarding on time departure nice crew"
Cons: "really narrow seats no options to lower the back of the seat Water cost money no TV"
Pros: "The flight itself went smoothly"
Cons: "I expected to atleast get a glass of water"
Cons: "The boarding staff not helpful at all for bags and for the seats. The crew was very bad talking she was very bad. The meals were not as expected.. Very poor trip. It is different at all of the going trip!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Bad customer support, unwillingness to correct an error in the first name appearing on one of the tickets. This forced us to cancel all 5 tickets and purchase tickets for a different airline at 4 times the cost."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Connecting flight to Stockholm was cancelled. Had to fly to Copenhagen and perchuse another flight with SAS When complaining to their staff the answer I received was that no other airline would even give me an option to fly to Copenhagen (where I was not headed by the way) in short - paid another 300$, got to Stockholm 3 hours late and will never fly them againb"
Pros: "All was good but I thing thy need to give food with no pay 3.30 h fly thy need something free"
Cons: "Miserable experience. This was flight was diverted to Kuwait due to weather. We were told we would be taking off a few hours later. Then we were told that we would be given a hotel room for the night in Kuwait. In the end, we all just waited around in the Kuwait airport for hours without any assistance from any airline representatives. I wound up having to book another flight, as the Pegasus delay was 13 hours (even though other flights were departing to Bahrain much earlier)."
Cons: "My tent poles, which were attached to my bag were lost. I am hiking in Switzerland and have no tent now!!!"
Pros: "Great team and great pilot everybody to the baggage people were excellent!"
Cons: "All they wanted was money. It was a scam. What is 8kg for a canyon? They would have charged me $75 for 5 kg! The only reason they didn't is because their system was down. They tried my credit cards and when that didn't work, they asked for cash. I never carry more than $5. There was no order in the airport and it was absolute mayhem. I went from line to line. I will never use this airline aha in! TWO hours to get my boarding pass? Anthony Gallo"
Cons: "the staff at the disk was so bad they charge me for extra weight more than what it should be they try to change the currency from turkish lira to euro then to my country currency just to collect more charge???. also when I paid by my visa card they didn't give me my recipt which mean they did something dicey."
Pros: "It didn't crash."
Cons: "Oh, boy. First, this flight was super late and they wouldn't admit it. I went to the gate at boarding time, and the staff rudely pushed me away, saying I misunderstood the gate number. I double checked, and no, that was indeed the right gate. This lasted until the airport announced the final boarding call for my flight, and people started lining up.Then the staff had to admit that this was the right gate and the plane was just late. We didn't start boarding until way after the announced time (which they didn't bother to update on the screen until it passed. Extraordinarily disorganized. Second, the flight crew was loud and kept the lights turned way up on an overnight flight. Everyone around me was trying to sleep, and they were woken up by the crew yelling "DO YOU WANT COFFEE?" 5 rows away. Even when they finally dimmed the lights 3 hours into the flight, they kept the Tv's on, so the flashing advertisements prevented me from sleeping restfully. Third, you have to pay for coffee and tea. Who does this? They also begin their flight with loud, obnoxious music that jolts everyone awake (see above for this being an overnight flight). Overall, only choose this airline if you're okay with being kept forcibly awake and you don't mind the flight being late. Oh, and you have 2 euros to pay for simple tea."
Pros: "It was a fast flight, flights have a low bar for comfort and food. The seats were fine and I slept through the flight so I cannot comment on the food but everything was clean and the staff was polite. The style of the aircraft is what shocked me. It seemed modern and almost like they hired an interior design person for style not function."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. But hey, that happens with flights"
Cons: "It took me two hours in line just to print my boarding pass even though I checked in online. Many of us thought we would miss the flight. Terrible customer service. I'm never flying with them again"
Cons: "Check in took 1.5h, that is why me and my wife werent seating next to each other, and also we almost missed our flight."
Cons: "Not even refreshments or a glass of water, almost all flights were delayed, no entertainment, lousy experience..."
Cons: "We wait 1.5 hour....no good air conditional....no water and no juice"
Pros: "The crew from the Paris to Istanbul flight rushed us to the Beirut flight so that we made it on time."
Cons: "All food is for purchase. No in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "The crew rushed us to the next Pegasus flight (Istanbul to Beirut) so that we made it on time."
Cons: "The flight departed nearly an hour late after idling on the tarmac. All food is for purchase. There is no in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "As long as I arrive safely, price is the most important thing about a flight..."
Cons: "Terrible boarding procedure at Basel. Had to stand in line for about 30 mins waiting to board."
Cons: "We were delayed going and coming back! Staff were not helpful on our way back. Unfortunately I had a very bad experience with using kayak as when I wanted to cancel I was very shocked that vayama charges $344 for changing both flights timings were as if I had booked through Pegasus themselves it would have been $75 , never again and I have deleted the app"
Cons: "Totally useless. Dirty plane, lousy service. Was ready to pay for refreshments as I had to take this low cost airline for time reasons. When trying to pay with a credit card the stewardess was telling me it was a debit card (as if I didn't know what my cards are) - after a while it appeared she mixed online and offline cards for credit and debit cards, yet she was increasingly arrogant while trying to convince me my card is a debit one. So I tried to pay cash with 100 EUR bill and she told me she was going to return the change in Turkish lira! The male steward was just standing next to the trolley without saying a word, looking afraid of his aggressive lady colleague. That's what I call customer service! The particular flight was PC861 Kuwait - Istanbul on June 17."
Pros: "The actual flight to Turkey was ok. nothing horrible happened."
Cons: "I came four hours before my flight, about 4 a.m.. two and a half was spent sending me back and forth because they couldn't agree on what was an appropriate price to charge me for extra baggage. The girl at the baggage counter called Pegasus and they told her the amount. When I got back to the baggage counter, the man there started checking my bags then the supervisor started yelling at me and him, because of a "miscommunication" between the other girl and Pegasus. I heard the other girl explain, and it was no communication. The supervisor as she called herself was extremely rude and short tempered with EVERYONE. Plus, they wanted to charge me 215 dollars for one extra bag. Really? I finally took a few things out and got away with under 90 dollars from the 20 dollars they were going to charge me before. I would have been happy to book with another airline that would have easily come under that price, and I barely got to my gate on time. I booked with Turkish air prior and it was 200 dollars round trip and I was very happy. My bags and food were free. When I got to Turkey to change flights, we had to get off the plane we were on and get on another, and my flight was over two hours delayed. We had to stay at the gate, and so I couldn't buy food at the airport. I would have gotten to Frankfurt at two so the small breakfast I had would have been ok, and now I had to buy food on the plane because I had planned also to meet a friend for dinner outside of Frankfurt before another flight (actually the entire reason I was flying with Pegasus in the first place) and now I wouldn't make it. Can you imagine spending all that money plus a hotel and the entire reason you went is just gone and you have to deal with all of this? So I go to buy food on the plane and I'm told my credit card doesn't work. The funny thing is, previously I checked my bags with the same credit card, and afterwards I rented a car and hotel with the same card. I knew my credit card worked. I made her try it again and nothing. So I just had to live on the small amount of yogurt I had had that morning. There was no apologies or anything for everything we went through except when my credit card wouldn't work the flight attendant gave me some coffee for free. I'm not a complainer and actually travel quite a bit (I've been traveling for 3.5 months straight all over europe and the middle east). This has been the only negative experience I've had. I truly believe that Pegasus does not care about keeping customers. I really feel like I've been treated like dirt, and that I was tricked into booking with them. I've always booked with Kayak and will continue to, but I would reconsider working with Pegasus if I were you. The other discounters like Ryanair are just fine. But this experience made me extremely angry and I will never book with Pegasus again."
