Flight from USA to Dubai was comfortable. There is some serious miscommunication between the staff who does checkin and immigration staff in India. Air Suvidha rules are enforced here as a requirement by the Indian government and without it not allowed to board the flight. The Indian authorities don’t even bother to check it. Please update either side of aisle. Vegetarian food from Dubai to Bombay was not that great at all. It was cold and chewy. Dubai being a hub can provide better options. Staff is very good and took good care of passengers. Please appreciate their hard work.
Pros: "Friendly and professional crew"
Cons: "All aspects of the travel to be recommended from check in staff, crew member and comfort on board"
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."
Pros: "Jenna our crew member was amazing. My wife and I traveled with our 5 kids ages 8, 6, 4, &11month old twins. Thought it would be a total nightmare but the crew was so helpful and understanding. They made sure the older 3 got their infotainment system working and setup the bassinets for the twins."
Cons: "Online Check-in didn't work properly, so we had to check in at the airport. They were understaffed and it took us over an hour to get through check in. The customer service was horrible, and we were only allowed to bring a backpack for a carry on, forcing us to check our one carry on bag. This made our two long flights uncomfortable with nothing to change into once we landed in Dubai and still had another 8 flight to Johannesburg. The flight itself was overbooked, and we then had to place our backpacks under the seats in front of us, giving us no leg room for 13 hrs."
Cons: "Maybe the only thing the tea was not hot enough."
Cons: "The food was not up to the mark - the menu choice and combinations needs to be re-looked at for non-veg passengers. The choice of spirits was limited and not there at times. The flight attendants overall disposition towards the passengers needs to improve. - at times they forgot what was asked of them."
Cons: "Needs to be a bigger plane for such a long trip. Crew seemed like they weren't happy to be on the flight. One bathroom was out of commission for our 14 hour flight and limited our section of the plane to one bathroom. The remaining bathroom was very dirty and lacked supplies. When I asked for some help to have it cleaned, the attendant told me she would have to lock it down but there was already a big line of people waiting to use it. Disappointed in this flight because it was so long with limited facilities. Enjoyed other times I had used Emirates but not this time."
Pros: "The crew was friendly but not always available for requests. I suppose I could have used the "attendant call button" but it would have been nicer if they were more observant when I was looking at them with a look of "I need something" as they walked by"
Cons: "Boarding process seems standard - always takes a long time to board and disembark. Older planes have screens with poor touchscreen responsiveness and poor resolution. I was surprised to see that the short-haul flights had better screens than the long-haul flights. I was on a 3 1/2 hour flight each way from Dubai/Delhi with beautiful screens but the long-haul each way from Dubai/Seattle had the crappy screens."
Pros: "Arguably the best service I've ever had on a flight"
Cons: "Had to stop movie 20min prior to landing as I was in emergency exit row"
Cons: "The fish is terrible - no matter it is regular or low salt meal."
Pros: "Good leg room and nice recline for economy. Good and service very nice."
Cons: "Everything was well done and organized."
Pros: "Hardware was excellent. One of the most comfortable First Class seats for sure."
Cons: "CX first class is designed more for individual travelers so for couples who want to sit beside one another there will be an aisle in between them. The Boston BA lounge is horrific and depressing so it should be avoided."
Cons: "Seating at the gate is strange. They just have people line up in any order and board them in that order. People run to form the line. Totally ridiculous. Food was awful. I have no idea what to even call the items they served. Audio jack was literally being held together with tape! Loose connection."
Pros: "The seats are fairly comfortable, and the service was great."
Cons: "The economy seats are obviously not great. The extended legroom seats are still quite narrow, though the legroom is great."
Pros: "Crew were super nice and friendly. Great selection of movies. Seemed to more washrooms than most planes; no long lines."
Cons: "Interior was dated; seat didn’t recline properly. Boarding was a bit hit and miss; no zones or row priorities, just one big line. Wine with dinner wasn’t the best."
Cons: "The baggage of all first class passengers was delayed beyond the time of the later flight .. ridiculous .. also flight delayed as is usual tor all flights in and out of Bangkok. The food on the flight is not appealing .. the front of the seat fell down onto the legs.."
Pros: "The crew was excellent...very flexible with meal service and appropriate presence during the long 14 hour flight."
Cons: "Quality of movie options not very good."
Pros: "Though a long flight.. love flying with Cathay!! The crew was fabulous!"
Cons: "Cancelation process was too poor customer service was also too poor. And high cancellation fee. Customer service representatives did not tell me when I am going get the money back and also weather my ticket is also canceled or not."
Cons: "The transfer in Istambul was very tight on the way back I literally had to run to get to the flight"
Pros: "Crew was good but could be better...timeing was very good."
Cons: "Food, entertainment"
Pros: "The Turkish Airline crew are treat you as guests not as customers."
Pros: "Boarding couldn’t be easier. The crew is very attentive and nice!"
Pros: "The flight went well with no complaints."
Cons: "With Airlines in the US charging for almost everything except the air you breath while on their plane I hate to complain about the meal Turkish provided free but a couple of the items on the tray could have been better."
Pros: "Superb entertainment system"
Cons: "The flight back from Dublin to Istanbul was awful, it was crowded, very warm, no air to breath."
Cons: "Service was terrible, crew was rude. Flight was delayed 2 hours leaving Tel Aviv and my luggage was not here when we arrived. They let us wait two hours for luggage before telling us it wasn't going to make it in. Frustrated and disappointed! Ground security in Turkey was rude and took my sons skate board which we had flown to Israel with and back to turkey, then they told us it couldn't come with us to miami although we flew Turkish both directions with no problem. In the end gate staff went and rescued his skate board from security as he got to the flight crying his little eyes out. Communication was terrible and staff was rude!"
Pros: "Entertainment and food was good."
Cons: "Flying to Tel Aviv (I missed my chance to review), my tray table was broken and the USB wouldn't charge on any of the televisions."
Pros: "I have been travelling on the Turkish airline since years and it is definitely the best"
Pros: "The lost my 1 checked bag of luggage somewhere between tel aviv-istanbul-frankfurt!! Filed a report at Frankfurt Airport but it was filled with all my essentials and some valuables and the airport staff didnt seem to concerned in helping me.... To clarify, my experience through Kayak has been fine! However this whole ordeal has left a very sour taste in my mouth...i still dont have my luggage. They couldnt track it l yet....maybe you can help or forward this message to the appropriate authority. It is extremely important to me :/ Thanks, I still like kayak :) -addam rhodes"
Cons: "See literally everything above"
It would be nice to have vegan options for meals. The entertainment was not working on the the way to Austria. It was only available near the end of flight to Canada. The service was excellent.
Flight was delayed by approx 1 hour. The boarding process and the flight itself were very good, slightly tight squeeze for my legs but overall happy.
Flight was meant to leave at 8:30pm but there was a 2 hour delay 😞
Airmalta does not include meals in their flights and neither offers entertainment.
Pros: "The crew was amazing and took measures to make the flight Covid safe"
Cons: "The food was not the best and Twistees weren't available. Also the seats felt narrow"
Pros: "I didn’t like anything"
Cons: "The female FA gave me an attitude when I asked about moving to a window seat"
Pros: "From checkin to luggage collection - the flight was easy and without hassle. We left slightly later than scheduled but arrived slightly earlier than scheduled. Staff from check in to those onboard we polite and professional. The aircraft was clean, bright and appeared in good order."
Cons: "Luggage collection took a little while longer than I would have expected - only a minor point, nothing to change airlines for."
Cons: "Both times into Rome we had to wait on the tarmac for stairs. Either get more stairs or book fewer flights. The planes get hot in July while you wait endlessly on stairs."
Cons: "The flight itself was absolutely fine but we are very unhappy with the what lastminute.com did regarding our tickets. (As you will see when you look at the notes for our case). We shall be seeking legal assistance upon the return from our holiday & contacting you/lastminute.com for compensation."
Pros: "fabulous flight and crew"
Cons: "Perfect take off perfect landing so smooth nothing more can be better - Thank you!"
Pros: "The captain had such a good sense of humour.. he was the most lighthearted captain ever- praise to all crew onboard and also amazing to the passengers."
Cons: "Nothing it was perfect for Ryanair.. always getting better"
Pros: "I was traveling with a handicap, the staff was very polite, patient and helpful"
Pros: "No issues - everything went smoothly"
Cons: "There are no nets on the back of the seat in front of you to put things like water bottles - headphones, books etc."
Pros: "The crew on the plain were great"
Cons: "The flight was delied and no one let us know The ground crew wasnt nice at all, even a bit meen..."
Cons: "There was a delay of 2 hours when the boarding du"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good leg room."
Cons: "Magazine racks on back of seats would have been good."
Pros: "Easy trip. Crew relaxed, short flight."
Cons: "The process of getting on the flight is the most exhausting part: distance to Terminal 1, multiple screenings and checks, then another long bus ride to the plane. The flight itself was is the easiest part at this airport."
Pros: "The frew was nice"
Cons: "When I made the reservation, I paid 20 Euro for 1 suitcase (20 kg.), but was surprised to realize that the payment was not valid for the whole trip (but only for one flight). I had to pay 40 Euro for the flight back. It could be helpful if you'd clarify this as part of the reservation process."
Cons: "I paid nothing for my bag going to Dublin and had to pay 10€ coming back. WHY???"
Cons: "5 hour delay, flying from another city, no refreshments or meals offered at the time of waiting, staff confused"
