Nice an comfort travel

Airplane A380-800 is too big, fully booked. Too many people everywhere, which made me nervous due to Covid-19 infection risks. But food was good, and toilets were fine.

Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing, absolutely loved it"
Pros: "The crew helped us get seats together as a family and also made a request for that seat change. They allowed us to board earlier which really helps since we have two kids under 4 years of age."
Cons: "The announcements at Chennai airport are not always audible"
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."
Pros: "All was good."
Cons: "Flew airbus 380 all the way and it was super comfortable!"

Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The food choice"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nil"
Pros: "The entertainment system. Easy to use and huge variety."
Cons: "The crew seemed very immature. They were more interested in gossiping about their social life and seemed to consider the job as secondary to why they were there."

Pros: "Friendly crew, delicious food and the entertainment was above board."
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "Valuable reminders ! Updates regarding flights was superb."
Cons: "Nothing to say."
Pros: "Ya"

Pros: "Nothing comfort level very low. Very poor service. Looks like how to make more money by robbing customers"
Cons: "Bought the ticket from internet after paying found baggage allowance only 20kg tried to contact airline additional 10 kg luggage price was more than the price of ticket. Seating was awfully I am 6'3" did not fit in middle seat requested several times for isle seat my legs were sticking out each time I have to get up to let pass the passengers and staff safety hazard. Have to pay additional 70 pounds sterling for under 3kg."

Cons: "Seats are cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "I enjoyed the wide selection of movies and tv series. I think the food is the best out of all the airlines and I enjoy flying with Emirates."
Cons: "When I boarded my flight, a man and his family took my seat and forced me to sit in the middle of two very large men and made my 7 hour flight very uncomfortable. I purposely chose that seat for leg room and even though business class was empty, they could not provide me with a different seat."
Pros: "Entertainment system is very good. Crew was marvelous"
Cons: "Didn't have a good experience in Kenya, not with flight but at the airport. Went through hell. They need to improve on their customer service. I am quite sure I am entitled to bring whatever I want as long as it's legal . But there's lots of corruption and they will mess up your reputation. But at the end of the day they want me to bribe them. I was Really upset."
Pros: "The staff near Baggage check-in area are always rude with the customers, it also happened to us in the past."
Cons: "Very very poor customer service"
Pros: "- Friendly crew, they managed to get my wife and I to sit together against all odds - Seats are more comfortable than other A380 configurations"
Cons: "- Crew's organization was confusing and all meals and services got surprisingly long to complete. - Most of the time there were no drinks available for passengers to grab and go, and you had to ask specifically even to get water. - Outside of the scheduled meals, there were very few passes to offer drinks to passengers - Entertainment system had great choices but the system ran with lag and lost frames every few seconds (not only in mine, but rather across the cabin)"
Pros: "Entertainment was good, boarding was OK. Leg-room much better than on competing direct flight US carriers, and aircraft cabin better maintained."
Cons: "Food for kids terrible, just not edible taste-wise. Catering is better flying out of Greece than on same flight returning from U.S. Bathrooms need to be cleaned and restocked during flight."

Pros: "Service Gluten free food provided."
Pros: "Comfort, friendly crew, excellent service. Good food"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Impecable! Not too many announcements! Absolutely gorgeous plane, great crew, good bathrooms, comfy seats, more room, the plane is so huge you don't feel a take off or landing. Easy pleasant check in process. Thank you!"
Cons: "The food, well I rarely eat on a plane, but some times its a bit better than the others. Vegan options could be good option as i don usually trust meat or fish on a plane! The touch screen doesn't feel the "touch" lots of times"
Pros: "All is good"
Pros: "The great customer service once on board was outstanding... great amenities and prompt return of requests..."
Cons: "The Airline Denied my WhiteWater Kayak then Allowed 12 hours later 2 Kayaks of equal proportions. My whole trip was focused on having this kayak.. it forced our trip into confined abilities and completely took away from my overall experience in Africa... I want a free flight with a boat.. I can give you flight details of my last flight takken .. What do you say..?"
Pros: "Their entertainment system, meals and aircraft cleanliness"
Pros: "Aircrafts are new and good"
Cons: "The ground staff needs to be more co-ordial and friendly. Am not sure how they are hired but they appear very rude and dry throwing instructions. I travel a lot and in many airlines and whatever the case, staff members of other airlines smile, tell issues if any, suggest solutions and work on it. Emirates staff, it seems, does not know how to talk or smile."
Cons: "We fid not enjoy the close proximity of several screaming children who insisted in screaming at all hoyrs, making sleep impossible. What was concerning was the reluctance of the staff to intervene. Most disappointing as we did not have any sleep at all overnight."
Cons: "Inflight Entertainment System completely dead. Was offered a piece of chocolate from biz class. Haha."
Pros: "Smooth flight, nice crew and decent food. Good infotainment although I couldn't find live TV in the Menu."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably COLD and DRY! Had two blankets on me and still sneezing. Seats were TIGHT!! Unbelievable!! Such a large plane had seats as small as baby car seats! Left the plane with red eyes, dry nose and aching joints!"
Pros: "Lots of food"
Pros: "Overall fully satisfied with a safe journey package"

When we checked in at Calgary- there were only 3 people intially. Then, 2 left and only 1 old man was left. He tried to move through the line, but could not clear us fast enough. About 50 people were stuck and not able to get boarding passes or luggage checked. We missed out flight. The scene was chaotic. Then, those of us who missed the flight were not able to get help as he was now trying to get the next people on the SLC flight through. We were so upset. Poorly run.

Pros: "Delayed"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and took good care of the passengers"
Pros: "The crew went the extra mile to accomodate my bag due to not having a seat in front of me to stow it. Also, Delta Comfort was exceptional!"
Cons: "Terrible delays"
Cons: "We weren't alerted there was a chance of delays. Over two hours late."
Cons: "Better food offerings"
Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "Cabin was way too hot despite complaining multiple times. Wi-Fi didn’t work the whole flight. The entertainment system was down. Seats uncomfortable. Inept crew. Worst flight I’ve ever taken."
Pros: "No food, late by hour"
Pros: "Excellent crew and clean aircraft"
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 20 mins because we were early..."
Pros: "The crew was communicative and courteous."
Cons: "There was a flight delay in LAX due to a maintenance issue. The captain and crew informed us before we boarded the plane which was excellent. However, they could not figure out what was wrong with the planed and delayed the boarding for another 3 hours, putting our 1900 departure time to 2100."
Cons: "More comfortable than I expected for a 6 hour flight. 757 was quite spacious."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I came from a long trip from France, the seat I was assigned was not reclinable, close to the restroom. I was totally exhausted from the previous flight, not able to sleep at all and when I tried to stretch my legs by sitting sidewards on the aisle a crew member keep bothering me to keep my legs out"
Pros: "Very comfortable, no complaints."
Cons: "No delays. And have the terminal bridge in working order"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, capt. had smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "Late gate change threw me for a loop. Had dinner with some friends in terminal before they caught a different flight. Walked to my gate only to find flight had changed to a different terminal and gate. Ended up fine because there was a delay with the lane switch, but made me a little anxious."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Took off late. Other than that very comfortable and great experience"
Cons: "THE FLIGHT WAS 5 HOURS LATE"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the service on Delta. The entire process was better than what i've come to expect on airlines. My flight attendant was Kate, and she was awesome - super friendly, professional, thoughtful."
Pros: "It is a busy travel day and this flight was unbelievably smooth. The entire crew was competent and friendly."
Pros: "Overall service was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "Having three seats."
Cons: "I had three seats to myself! After getting elbowed all the way from Amsterdam to Minneapolis, I was tired and I slept three good hours."
Pros: "Better than average entertainment system for domestic flights."
Cons: "Boarding done against logic: my seat was in the last 5 rows of the cabin and I was scheduled to board in the final group. When I got to my seat the first 30 rows were nearly fully, but the back of the plane was half empty. The whole time the gate agent was urging passengers to move faster through the aisle, but Delta should really rethink its boarding strategy. It shouldn't take 40 minutes to board a 757."
Cons: "Kayak a howed my gate as something that didn’t exist at the terminal. I went to a kayak help desk to have a ticket printed that showed my TSA precheck because it wasn’t showing on my mobile ticket, and no one was there to help. I waisted for 10 mins. It then took me nearly 2 hours to get through security. I asked if I could get through quicker and was told I could not, despite it being passed my boarding time. I then ran to my gate where I waited for another 10 mins (no one was there, again) and then an employee came out and said they couldn’t let anyone board once the door was shut. He then directed me to the delta help desk (there was at least 20 people behind me who missed their flight). I then had to pay an additional $75 to get a later flight. The whole experience was awful and I’m disappointed with Kayak and the gate confusion, but mostly Delta and the lack of customer service."
Cons: "Sat on the runway for over an hour to get the gate. Unacceptable."
Pros: "The flight was very good, no complaints, good service and we flew on schedule"
Cons: "We were split into two boarding groups, one for priority and one for everyone else. This was good but the priority line was just a bit too far away for the announcements to be heard. This added a little bit of confusion. This was at gate B36 at JFK Airport's Terminal 4."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Take a long time to taxi to the gate & getting off the plane."
Pros: "Everything was great, easy boarding, great idea (board ahead of your zone if you check bag free at gate), courteous staff, good food choices, arrived ahead of schedule, good movies."
Pros: "Personality and charm of the flight attendants made it an especially relaxing trip."
Pros: "Fast boarding and complimentary snacks."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large woman who came over the arm rest onto my seat."
Pros: "They were comprehensive and tried to move fast"
Cons: "Delayed flight because they didn’t had the crew ready"
Pros: "The movie selection is very good"
Cons: "Both boarding the flight and getting off the flight were severely delayed. The flight attendants also seemed to ignore half the plane when handing out drinks and when picking up trash. I had to flag someone down after they had simply walked past my row both times."
Pros: "Being on time."
Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"
Pros: "We were not happy with our flight my flight got cancelled 3 times I miss work they need to reimburse us and also reimburses the hotel cuz we had to stay at a hotel because they cancelled our flight three times and then our flight that we went out on Monday was late because of a flight attendant arriving late to the hotel to the airport"
Pros: "I didn't get a chance to get the gentleman's name at the gate, but he was able to get me on the earlier flight (since I had NO luggage and only 1 carry on that fit under my seat) and didn't charge me the stupid fee for filling a seat that was empty when I was giving up a seat on a later flight that would accommodate those who missed this earlier flight. Nice to see kindness in an industry that seizes fees on every opportunity."
Pros: "It got me to SFO earlyish"
Cons: "Was told to go away and wait for name to appear on screen for seat assignment. Was seated apart from travel companion. Got to sit next to folks with questionable hygiene, seat broken. Seatbelt broken. Stuck in back of plane window seat and was supposed to be “happy”. I was brilliantly ignored by crew. Seat back entertainment broken snd flight crew never answered the call button. Got to watch bag handlers throw and drop luggage like true gorillas. Delta, this time you truely are the worst. Wont book you again."
Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."
Pros: "Very nice and friendly crew were very efficient."
Cons: "Very nice and friendly crew were very efficient. Unfortunately, we had to wait over 20 minutes to get into our gate because another plane was there, so we arrived late. Not DELTA's fault."
Pros: "The crew on Delta create a welcome atmosphere every time I have flown with them."
Pros: "The entertainment options and noticing the little touches that Delta is making to improve the brand and experience."
Cons: "Seems like there are legacy "attitude" issues with the crew. I sat on the aisle yesterday, and SEVERAL times I was bumped, quite rudely, by passing crew. In one instance, as they passed to pick up trash, they took two of my three items. They started walking on, and I tapped them as they passed to pick up the third. She brusquely turned and said: don't touch me to get my attention. No please; quite rude, and unnecessary."
Cons: "Horrible wait if nearly 30 minutes after landing"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Crew lacked any customer centricity, service was poor"
Cons: "Zero communication to the passengers as to why we were delayed for almost an hour sitting on the plane"
Pros: "They arrived on schedule."
Cons: "Seated in the rear middle seat. I had no options to select a seat when I checked in or made my reservation that wasn't an extra charge. I'mover 6' tall and middle seats are painful, especially cross country. Airlines need to be a little more attentive to their customers' needs. If a passenger is taller than average, and the flight is more than 60 minutes, provide comfortable seating at no extra charge. If a customer has a short layover, which their system knows about since it is the sourve of the flight plans, put the customer toward the front of the aircraft since these flights are habitually late and customers end up having to sprint through airports to try to make connections."
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Rocky takeoff"
Pros: "Decent food and drink. Flight attendants were very nice, although not quite as excellent as on the other Air France flights which I had on this trip"
Cons: "The seat is angled when fully reclined so there's a feeling that you'll slide off the seat, making it difficult to find a good position to sleep. Video screen seemed quite large. Headphones were noise canceling and worked well"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Crew was nice, seats were comfortable"
Cons: "I enjoyed the flight"
Pros: "The Turkish Airline crew are treat you as guests not as customers."
Pros: "It was a true Turkish Airlines experience! Awesome as always!"
Cons: "- Boarding took too much time because the airline called all passengers to board, instead of asking to board by their seat zone. - The space between seat is too narrow so I couldn't stretch my legs. - The seats are very old and little bit dirty - The seats were not properly cleaned."
Cons: "On time"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "No entertainment. Late boarding."
Pros: "Great good entertainment n crew provided warm and courteous service"
Cons: "Terrible boarding process n the seats are not the best- not bad just not as good as everything else."
Pros: "I have flown Turkish Air many times since 2010, and used to like the airline. Not so much anymore. I would say their entertainment center and food are pretty good."
Cons: "They used to have an affordable Economy Premium option, now all they have are seats made for someone 5’5” 150 pounds. Anyone over 6’ can and will suffer greatly. I’m 6’4” and fly many of their 12 hour flights from LAX to Istanbul and have to sit sideways, until my back aches so bad I have to turn. They also keep their planes unbearably hot, which I have no idea why, making the trip in that cramped seat horrible. Their in between meals snacks consist of cheese sandwiches, and the attendants never come around with drinks or snacks. I also fly Singapore Air and Emirates and their service is subperb!"
Cons: "Horrible service I will never go with this airline The attendants never came to us when we needed them this is my second time The attendants don’t care and don’t even love k at you"
Cons: "I nearly missed my connecting flight because of how poorly organized Ataturk airport is. Disembarking was extremely time consuming; there were few signs instructing connecting passengers where to go; and the employees of the airport were extremely unhelpful and gave conflicting information. I made my flight with only minutes to spare after going through two security and passport checkpoints and sprinting an entire wing of the airport. I will never fly through Ataturk (or anywhere in Turkey) again."
Pros: "Boarding couldn’t be easier. The crew is very attentive and nice!"
Cons: "The crew on board was aloof, and somewhat rude. I was traveling with my 87 yr old mother and they did little to help, especially when we needed the restroom but they had the aisle blocked for most of the time, serving food. There was no way to get around to access the bathroom and the crew turned us away from the only available bathroom in the front. Really?! Not impressed at all. Also the flt was 30 minutes late making our connection tight. One of the young, gorgeous stewardesses was rude and dismissive of me when I asked about it."
Cons: "customer service needs upgrading"
Pros: "The food was SUPER DELICIOUS! The seats were comfortable, the movie selection is great, and the staff's care and commitment to customer happiness is unmatched!"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "No room"
Pros: "Food was fine"
Cons: "delay time and Istanbul airport"
Pros: "Free meal and drinkd"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but we were not informed of what’s happening Too hot, air conditioning did not work"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Will never use kayak again"
Pros: "Superb entertainment system"
Cons: "The flight back from Dublin to Istanbul was awful, it was crowded, very warm, no air to breath."
Pros: "Good schedules, short wait, nice and helpful personnel, on time, nice plane, bathrooms, good food"
Cons: "No air in cabin"
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: "Short flight-everything fine. Great plane."
Cons: "Having to pay for internet if you want to use it. The way Israelis queue at the airport, leaving no room between you and them...too much pressure. Strange 'breakfast"."
Pros: "I was upgraded to buisnes class :)"
Cons: "Every thing was ok"
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: "As with the departure, everything was smooth for those who had no carry-on laptop"
Cons: "The new carry-on laptop caused a delay of about 1 hr before departure and arrival an hour late, then claiming the laptop was almost a nightmare with long queue after picking up the luggages, one has to also claim their laptops in a make shift station In the baggage claims area. My suggestion is to put the computer laptops in alphabetic order by last name/surname, with the claim ticket,for easier access when picking up. As for departure, probably at check in to inform them that if you have a laptop carry-on so that can be taken care of right away as not to delay departure when they take it at the departing gate. This should be done at check in if in Turkey, or as a transferring traveler, to inform the traveler to take care of that as soon as arrived to transferring destination and for the traveler not to wait until boarding time at the boarding gate."
Pros: "I liked the fact that I was not bothered by any background sounds while listening to a movie on the Turkish Airlines headphones. The crew was very nice, and the food was fantastic."
Pros: "הכל"
Cons: "שום דבר"
Pros: "I got extremely sick on the flight from Istanbul to San Francisco. I now know I caught a stomach bug which hit me on the flights from Cape Town to Istanbul and then even worse from Istanbul to San Francisco. The flight from Istanbul was delayed by two hours due to customs delay for a passenger, as such there was a lot of recycled air. Take that and fact I'm pregnant and by time i started the 13 hour journey already felt sick. I started throwing up immediately and got sick 12 more times. the flight attendants brought me crackers, water and a cold towel and ice. My husband asked if he could pay to put me in business class but was not in airline policy. but i think given how sick and pregnant i was the flight attendant went to ask the captain if there was anything they could do to assist. they ended up moving me to business class to lie down and let me stay there for 3 hours. I got sick upon moving back but getting that rest really helped me. I felt like they genuinely cared about me and am so thankful to the two flight attendants who assisted: 1) Zumrat Bolukbas 2) Hatice (Cabin Chief) These women are amazing!"
Cons: "the 2 hour flight delay on tarmac."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "Didn't like the airplane. Bit old. Too long till boarding."
Pros: "This was my first flight with Turskis Airlines and my best experience with flying to Europe. The food was excellent; we had two hot delicious meals (best airplane food I ever had). The crew was the best - professional yet friendly. TA airfares are cheaper than other airlines so I could spend one day in Istanbul. That alone is worth it!"
Pros: "good job rushing us to the correct gate"
Cons: "late"
Pros: "friendly crew and superior service"
Pros: "Add good airline to Atlanta to eu"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "The seats had a decent amount of leg room."
Cons: "Stuck in Istanbul airport for three days because of snow. The way the airline handled it was APPALLING. Second night stood in line for a hotel for over four hours only to find out at 3am that there weren't any more. And none of that captures the insanity of being sent to a transfer desk with no way out except buying a Turkish visa and going through immigration. Inexcusable. I have traveled to over 40 countries in the past 30+ years and this was beyond the pale, absolutely a nightmare, and almost all of it (excepting the actual snow delay) in the airline's control. NEVER FLY THIS AIRLINE THROUGH ISTANBUL."
Cons: "flight canceled , i flew diff, airlines"
Cons: "First the flight was delayed 2 hours and then we sat on the plane for 7 hours before take-off, while the crew took care of several issues. Ridiculous. Should have made us wait at the airport gate so we could have eaten proper food and had wifi."
Pros: "excellent"
Pros: "The whole experience was great. After an excellent meal which included drinks before and an excellent wine selection the flt attendants came through and made up a bed for you. This included a cover for the seat, a blanket and a big pillow. As opposed to United where you have to stick your feet in a little cubby the Turkish plane has just an open bench which opens to provide storage and gives ample foot room. I have never slept so much on a flt. Also he bathrooms are much more spacious than others."
Cons: "Really nothing."
Pros: "Great entertainment and food."
Cons: "Boarding was very long."
Pros: "Food and the service"
Cons: "Ground crew, misleading information"
Pros: "Friendly, polite and very helpful staff. Clean aircraft.on time best customer service."
Cons: "Nothing negative. Keep up good work!"
Pros: "It was a quick 2-hour flight with a delicious meal."
Cons: "I sat in the only seat that didn't have a working personal entertainment system."
Pros: "everything was good and don rhith"
Pros: "Lots do watch/do on the console. Smooth flight. Responsive staff when available."
Cons: "Perhaps because of Istanbul security measures, but all water removed before boarding plane, with no chance to get more. Stewards couldn't give out bottles of water, only those little cups from time to time. They could bring more of those little cups when you called for them, but not during turbulence. So having no access to water was not great (or planned out on their part). Also, no random sweeps of the aisle by the stewardess from time to time, to check on comfort. My seat kept being pushed by passenger behind me. Flight into Istanbul two weeks prior was great all around. This knee was filled with too many negative moments."
Pros: "Everything was perfect during the flight."
Pros: "Overall not a good experience"
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: "Food"
Pros: "Good. Thank you."
Cons: "All great"
Pros: "New international terminal in San Diego is very nice"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Didn't have the vegetarian meal I ordered"
Cons: "Never made the flight because my first flight was delayed."
Pros: "Really friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment, worst food I've ever had at an airline"
Cons: "the seats and service as a whole"
Cons: "I missed the flight to Manchester due to delay in the flight to Munich"
Pros: "Service is good"
Cons: "Food is not good. But you can't expect that with any airline today anymore. Entertainment system wasn't working at my seat."
Pros: "A lot of legroom and good food for an airplane! The inflight entertainment has games, shows, movies, and a cool map. Plus the crew was friendly. This economy flight felt like premium!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about!"
Pros: "Food, drink, viewing options on the personal monitor."
Cons: "The seats are terrible! Too small and way too close together!"
Cons: "We had 30 minutes delay"
Cons: "It seems like my gluten free meal request did not go through. But I must admit it, It could also be my fault"
Pros: "Their crews were great. Good selection of entertainments."
Cons: "Meals were not great. Their seats were hard to set for a long fight."
Pros: "Very comfortable and the flight crew were extremely friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "I couldn’t eat the food"
Pros: "Everything was excellent, there was no entertainment but wasn't needed because it was a short flight"
Cons: "We got there 15 minutes late, which isn't that bad but I had a connection flight and it was very pressed to get to it"
Pros: "Friendly service, good food."
Cons: "A bit too cold."
Pros: "On time, easy boarding, nice crew"
Cons: "Seats were hard as rocks, I was squirming within the first hour. No entertainment."
Pros: "The service. Smooth flight."
Cons: "The forward economy cabin was too cold. When the passenger in front of me had his seatback all the way back, I could not get out of my seat, lean forward, nor see the entertainment screen or eat easily."
Cons: "When I picked up my luggage one piece had a broken zipper and my belongings fell out"
Pros: "crew is nice"
Cons: "breakfast was pretty lame !"
Cons: "Where is my bag"
Cons: "* The gate was with bus, and not a direct terminal connection * There were no drawing sets for kids * The food was either overheated or somehow impacted - didn't look proper"
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: "One hour in late"
Cons: "I was transferred to the flight through vienna, vienna-berlin was cancelled and i am stuck in Vienna"
Cons: "2 hours delay. Bad food"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled , for tecnical reason, we got very late flight instead- 12 hours delayed. We didn't get compensated for tall the in convenience"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delay for 45 minutes; unfortunately, it's becoming a trend at Lufthansa"
Pros: "The food (breakfast) was great. The plane was clean. The whole operation was very orderly."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "No TV"
Pros: "Friendly. And efficirnt crew"
Cons: "I didn't got the seats i asked for in the check in."
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: "Stuff"
Cons: "Little food"
Pros: "Everything is very good!"
Cons: "Not enough leg ro in economy section."
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: "."
Cons: "The seats were too hard. I have never felt that way on any other flights."
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: "Everything about the service staff the plane amazing"
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "No entertainment on board"
Cons: "seats are way too close to each other."
Cons: "I didn't like that I bought a bottle of perfume and they let me take it from Israel to Germany without a problem, and as soon as I got to Germany they trashed it saying that it should've been in a sealed bag, so 80$ went to trash or God knows where,,"
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?"

Problems with the in-flight wi-fi (none) and the flight info (none). However, movies worked fine and the selection is exceptional.

Pros: "Everything perfect and arrive to destination on perfect time."
Cons: "All positive."
Pros: "The crew was professional & friendly"
Cons: "Food was terrible honestly, entertainment system didn't work on 1st flight."
Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"

Pros: "The crew were amazing and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Keep up the good work"

Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."

Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."
Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Cons: "Nothing good to say about this flight. The plane was old with no entertainment. The sits where very compact and not comfortable at all. The food was a sweet bread and water. The flight attendants were rushing and will take a while if you needed anything. I felt like I was taking a bus with graffiti all over the place."
Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."

Cons: "The food and that there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"

Cons: "Profiling certain customers"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
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."

Cons: "Boarding wasn't announced. Limited in flight movie selection. Food was average. Same dessert for both meals served."
Pros: "Much more civilised for the same cost (or less) as the budget carriers. Proper food and drinks included as is the norm with international flights even though it's a very short haul."
Cons: "The stinky guy behind me, but that's not the airline's fault."
Cons: "Taking off late caused me stress because I had transferring flight within less than two hours in transit originally. So we arrived later about 50 minutes so I had to manage my situation and find my next gate and be on time. And an other thing that I disliked was that I was allowed to have only one baggage which was very unusual for international flight between two countenances. And the crew was not polite enough so she made fun of my Cary-on. In short, I expected more from KLM which is famous for them being "Royal" but not acting as one of them."
Pros: "The service of the crew onboard"
Cons: "Entertainment not to many recent movies and the boarding process was a little bit confusing."
Pros: "- entertainment systen was OK (movies), but has no current news - food was good - windows can be darkened progressively"
Cons: "- Schiphol airport (AMS) is small, crowded, noisy; no water fountains; toilets are dirty and insufficient in number; SFO is much better - KLM boarding process was chaotic (not by group or row number), boarding/security personnel (4 old guys) didn't have a clue - 787 is noisy, chairs are uncomfortable (my back still hurts) and very close together, they also recline way too much - food trays not collected promptly - noisy babies on all flights - clearly not enough cabin crew for a full flight - no or wrong info by pilots on timing (crew are always lying anyway) - gate is all around the back at SFO (long taxi to get there) - they inserted people in wheelchairs during deboarding thus holding everybody up."
Pros: "The price was nice."
Cons: "Plane looked unkept on exterior. Crew was nice but lazy."
Pros: "Flight was overbooked. After paying 1.7k, they put me to another flight which took me 7 hours more to arrive SFO."
