We entered the plane last.Our seats not were ready and we were forced to do it all alone.Rudeness and unprofessionalism of SWISS crew.The end of the vacation was spoiled. For what I paid to SWISS 100$ in advance(10 monthes)? I believe, if SWISS could not provide the paid service as expected, SWISS must return the money(100$) and apologize. Nobody apologized in Zurich, threatened to invite the police. Bad crew, bad service."

They passed everyone so when the gate door opened everyone were trying to get to the gate and there was no order. That was stupid to say the least. Turkish could have waited the couple of minutes needed to get the gate open!!! and save the hassle!"

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: "Security at the Ataturk airport. Airtight and curious. No wonder terrorists could only strike outside."

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: "Checked bag got ruined, servie was terrible"
Cons: "My Luggage did not make it, I don't have any information about it :) Lot of people did not get their Luggage"

Cons: "It was at a good pace"
Cons: "We PAID $30/each to check 2 bags, both ways, so $120 total. Then at the gate, BOTH WAYS, Delta Gate Reps allowed people to check bags for FREE, & pick up at bag claim, just like WE PAID TO DO. NO MORE DELTA FOR US!"
Cons: "The website could work for starters"
Pros: "The entire flight was excellent, on time, great friendly crew, edible food, movies and options were great, perfect in every way. It was a little chaotic at flight loading on extra security, but I assume it could have something to do with it being on 9/11 and it was ultimately bound for NYC."

Cons: "Entertainment system was (again) not fully functional. No success to "noon-movies", such as games. Plane was untidy almost from the beginning. Check-in staff was functional, but not particularly friendly."
Pros: "The KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring when there was confusion with my ticket."
Cons: "I booked KLM flights (Cork - Tampa return) but the planes were in fact Aer Lingus and Delta. So I have no idea what KLM is like. When I checked in at Cork the ground staff could only give me a boarding card for the first flight. For the second one she said I would have to go to the Delta counter in Amsterdam. It was difficult to find a counter there or staff as check-in was all by computer. The computer kept saying 'error' when I put in my code. I eventually was directed to a KLM desk (nicely hidden). I was told that my seat no longer existed. At this point the flight was ready to board. Thankfully the KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring and upgraded my ticket to economy comfort. On the way back, I could only get a boarding card for my first flight. The second two I had to collect at the boarding gate of the second flight."

Cons: "Delta offers a decent product on most of their fleet but the 717 or MD-88/90 can be extremely loud at the back of the plane. You better bring ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones and learn to read the flight attendants lips."

Pros: "Great trips notifications"
Cons: "Barking dogs. 4 around us! Middle seat."
Pros: "Crew was great, helped us board fast after a delayed arrival and to avoid needing a crew change (FAA Regs)."
Cons: "Plane was a D-90? The plane was very loud with vibration noise at very high decibels during the whole flight. Because of the extended flight (3 1/2 hours in the air) due to a storm system, they should have offered more food to travelers."
Pros: "Newer plane with entertainment"

Cons: "I have nothing to complain about"
Cons: "The person sitting next to me what is not able to fit in their seat, therefore, he filled his seat and half of my seat. I don't think it's fair that I paid for a full seat and only was able to use half of my seat. I was incredibly uncomfortable the entire flight. I was pressed up against the window and against the stranger passenger that I did not know. By the end of the flight, my shirt and my pants are soaked with sweat, it was not my sweat."

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".

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 flight was canceled due to mechanical difficulties and British airways delayed helping us for 2 hours and then told us to use the phone 800 number to book a different flight. we needed to connect in London for the flight to Tel Aviv. The man on the phone barely spoke English and set us up with a flight that would not get us to our destination in time for our religious Sabbath Friday night. When we tried to explain the situation he hung up on us. We called back and tried to explain again we either spoke to the same man or another Indian man whom also spoke unintelligible English and he also hung up on us. In the mean time my wife spoke with the counter agents and they tried to find us another flight but by now other airline counters were closed. An hour later I tried the 800 number again and spoke again with the same Indian guy, when I asked to speak to a manager he gave me a hard time then finally said ok, put me on hold which I stayed for a while and realized he just put me on hold indefinitely. Finally after being in the airport for 9 hours we found a flight from United and a family member booked it online for us which we took to Tel Aviv and got us here only 2 hours later than our original flight which had a 12 hour layover in London and we were going to spend time touring but did not get to. As far as I am concerned British Airways has done a horrible job and no one should ever fly with them again. Unfortunately our flight home is with them I hope it goes smooth."
Pros: "The crew is friendly. Relative to some other flights I've had, the Economy section is not terrible."
Cons: "If you are fairly tall, don't expect to be able to catch some sleep. The earphone socket is located right next to your leg, so expect to break your cable."
Pros: "Food was decent"
Cons: "One of the worst business class seats - worn and cramped. Boarding was pandemonium Crew was unfriendly"
Cons: "British airways new I'l be late , they could send someone to pick me up from the security point, so I could have been on time."
Cons: "Screens were difficult to maneuver. In some instances wouldn't open."
Cons: "not much room. cant explain the boarding. too complicated and required going down stairs."
Cons: "Boring entertainment selections"
Cons: "5 hours delay, and at 2 of them we were on board. Terrible food. We asked to walk outside, by foot, in the snow to the aircraft. Terrible flight."
Pros: "Crew and entertainment are excellent"
Cons: "Food is mediocre. Temperature on the flights to and from Tel Aviv is very cold (needed blanket and shawl both directions)."
Cons: "Business class configuration on BA 777"
Pros: "Ground staff and crew excellent Boarding was confusing and not announced"
Cons: "The breakfast was kind of gnarly - the eggs were oversalted and slimy, like worse than the usual airplane meal"
Pros: "Friendly flight staff, spacious cabin, decent food, clean and well-maintained. Additionally, we were delayed by 30 minutes and still managed to arrive before our original arrival time at Gatwick. I haven’t flown BA in years but this trip has made me a new regular customer."
Cons: "12 hour delay. Very disappointed with British airways"
Cons: "Freezing cold cabin"
Cons: "It gave me a different return date"
Pros: "The crew are always nice, trying to compensate for the lack of service provided by the company. sadly, its not enough anymore."
Cons: "Everything.. Check in was a nightmare, only one representative for over 50 people. and much more horrible behavior from once a great company, today nothing more than an over paid low cost one."
Pros: "Efficient and convenient."
Cons: "The cleanliness of the plans...my tray table has crusted food stains and the magazines in the seat pocket had gum all over them."
Pros: "Plane was only a quarter full, so plenty of room to stretch out!"
Cons: "One and a half hour delay due to late departure from Gatwick. Food very average and entertainment system and choice of films, poor."
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "Direct filght"
Cons: "Limited entertainment options"
Pros: "The team on board is always trying their best and work hard to make it comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost an hour after boarding which isn't the end of the world but to sit on the plane is worst than waiting for it. They had one disabled customer who screamed all night and to be honest, again, not much you can do about it but it kept everyone awake on an overnight flight. Would've been nice if they had handled the customer."
Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "Disappointed with the food choice"
Cons: "It is a very short connection time and it is the second time I've missed it. Now according to the schedule I should be arriving Tel Aviv at 11:30 pm instead of 3 pm. And the wait in London is very long."
Pros: "The plane was old and dirty even after it had been cleaned. There was grime in the lavatory and on the seat back tables."
Cons: "The crew was fine and the food was edible, but it wasn't great."
Pros: "the flight was very comfortable and we had a very pleasant flight. The food was very tasty, and all in all the flight was very high standard."
Cons: "there was some air hosts strike so service was slower than expected, but all in all the crew was able to attend everybody's needs. landing was a bit rougher than usual."
Cons: "Their own employees didn't know that the flight was delayed, though their app had sent out a notice, and they refused to let me go through security, having already given away my seat more than an hour before the flight actually left. Then they refused to admit responsibility and do anything to help except to continue to put us on standby on their own full flights, knowing we wouldn't be able to get on one of those flights for at least a few days. They did finally give us a hotel for just one night and that was only after we kept reminding them that this was all their fault."
Pros: "I was late to the flight due to an accident and I have got a new flight quite easily"
Cons: "I have got a seat that can take t back, no one told me in advanced this is the situation and the flight attendent keeped telling me why it can't be done instead of looking for a solutioni"

Cons: "Cabin temperature a bit high"

Cons: "we order kosher food for the flights, on the first flight we recive only for 1 pessanger so on the way back we call few days before to the airlines company to confirm that is kosher food for both passengers and they confirm and again we didnt recive only 1 passanger recive for flight over 20 hours way to be with out food"
Pros: "British Airway's service is cordial and comfortable, which goes a long way to making the entire trip the same. Obviously they have no or little control over potholes in the air and wind turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to arrive 2 hours before our connecting BA flight departed Heathrow. Unfortunately because of loading delays on our original flight, we arrived in Heathrow 40 minutes late. The crew said that 60 minutes is the designated minimum but we used all of the 80 minutes plus, and it airport was NOT crowded. If BA is connecting to BA, then you have a responsibility ahead of time to address this problem and keep connecting passengers from getting overly distressed in a strange airport."
Pros: "exelant crew ans service"
Cons: "overprice for extra bag"
Pros: "Boarding staff was confused and took al long time. The crew were nice enough but disinterested in serving us and were annoyed when I asked for a few crackers or bread to help with a stomach ache. Never got any. I had to get up several times to ask for water. Comfort was ok and plane was warm enough. There was several people who came and sat down next to me in the open seat, 6 or 7 different people who left their own seats elsewhere on the plane and came to sit next to me in the open seat. One woman brought her child over, asked me to love another seat over, so her child could lay down and put his feet in my lap. Then, when Inledt for the ladies room, she left him there to kick the seat in front of him and throw his tuna fish sandwich pieces on me and on the floor. I never agreed to play nanny to her child and after I'd paid $750 for a one way ticket from TPA to AMS, I didn't think I should have to. The mother gave me an earful of her bad language when I asked her to take care of her own child and take him and his fishy tuna sandwich back to his own designated seat. I had asked a male flight attendant to handle the situation, neither he nor the other staff, who stood by, cared that it was disturbing me, or that the other passengers were playing musical chairs with empty seats all night. I have flown British Air more than 100 times in my life. For 35 years it was my go to airline for step up in quality, service and class. This time I could have flown several other airlines that would have been $379, $400, 547, 650 for the same flight TPA to London Gatwick then AMS, instead I opted to pay a little more and thought I'd get a little more. Not any more on British Air. Other passengers on the flight were rested when they arrived. Not me, I was tired and disappointed and kicking myself for paying more to fly British Air. This is sadly understandable, as all quality is down with alot of airlines. But it's particularly disappointing that I'm saying that about British Air after all these years. I have only complained one time to an airline over 30 years. This will be my second time. I plan to send this complaint to British Air and ask for a refund."
Cons: "The plane is not comfortable. Especially the number of toilets is very small: only 1 (ONE) on each side in the touristic part. Is it the feature of BA? I have never seen such a thing on other planes."
