It was a good trip. Friendly staff. On time flights. Great experience.

Flight was delayed 2 hrs.

I needed to change my flight and your company made it extremely difficult. The customer service for kayak was completely UNSAT.

You need to train your check in crew

Service excellence as always

Really I can’t think of anything that could’ve been better. Thank you for an excellent trip

Cons: "Food options were very similar. And the pre-made meals are hit or miss"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Ok"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "When a very large man is placed next to someone else who is in a middle seat and cannot use the arm rests on either side, I would think the hostesses would make an effort to move one of the three considering there were multiple other open seats. He was also very old and could hardly stand up when needed. It was the most uncomfortable flight, if I had the money, I would definitely fly business class"
Cons: "Check-in service at Ahmedabad was very bad. The staff there seems to be very disorganized. Took an hour to check-in may be 10-12 passengers ahead of me."
Pros: "Crews were excellent. Luggage came out very fast. Flight was very comfortable."
Pros: "Crew is friendly and polite. The guy at the boarding who made my day after all my nervous story with boarding pass! With his one sentence and sweet behavior the difficult transatlantic trip became more comfortable."
Cons: "In Tbilisi there were problems with boarding pass from Doha to NYC, as they said at desk than I’ll git it in Doha without problems. The arrival was late, wat Doha’s desk they tried to give me boarding oass , but at last sent to the information desk, at that time I had only 1 hr before departure, lazy woman at dest was not so much helpful and friendly, at last I’ve got the boarding and run to the gate as crazy. It was possible to say that I can got it at the gate too"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cancelled my trip"
Pros: "The in flight service was good"
Cons: "The time it took to get the baggage. It took over 2 hours"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."
Pros: "The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people."
Cons: "The previous Qatar flight took 1.5 hours longer than originally stated and we had to rush to the connection without visiting the lounge. We missed out on the lounge on the flight down as well due to timing."
Pros: "My husband and I recently traveled from New York to Bali Indonesia for our honeymoon. We were upgraded to Business for all four of our flight segments. The flight attendants were incredibly friendly and courteous and were actually surprised when we only ordered one drink and one meal at a time! The food was phenomenal, especially for an aircraft meal, and no matter what I was in the mood for, they had it."
Cons: "Boarding in New York was not organized. Those traveling with small children or needing assistance were not boarded first, nor were Business and Economy boarding from separate jetways."
Pros: "Okay"
Cons: "Okay"
Cons: "Flight was advertised on kayak as having wifi and electrical outlets for devices and did not have either."
Pros: "Very punctual departures and arrival schedules and compliance"
Cons: "Nothing to mention"
Pros: "Crew professionalism"
Cons: "Food: at best a B+ Laptop Wrapping at gate: very slow process Entertaining: movie variety is poor. Seat: even in business class the seat doesn't recline completely... not very comfortable as compared to other airlines"
Pros: "Seats in Business Class are heaven. You get quality rest. Very spacious. Food is good but should have option of healthy sides (steam or sauteed vegetables dor example). On board crew very helpful and polite with a minor exception"
Cons: "Food is good but should have option of healthy sides (steam or sauteed vegetables dor example). Too much potato. One flight attendant with an attitude can affect overall experience. Not sure if because of inexperience or just the wrong way to approach customers. I could tell this person was struggling trying to be genuinely nice. Complicated process to upgrade from economy to business"
Pros: "Flight was great, best over seas flight I've ever had!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that we had a 10 hour layover in Qatar....and it was when the city was closed down. So there was nothing for my new husband and I to do. I wish that the airline would have given us more direction and help. Or have us a room for the night"
Cons: "Norhing really"
Cons: "Almost missed my flight. I had to take a bus, go through a transfer check, and then take a train to the gate, which got me there so late (even with running) that they were calling my name (and a few others) over the loud speaker."
Pros: "They don't charge you for any seat in economy class"
Cons: "The boarding process feels very hostile, they are not nice and you are threaded as a terrorist (while they smile at you during the process). Since a new policy of TSA according to them, you cannot take your computer with you in the plane. This means that working in your way back is very hard and you will be loosing the day which is very uneficient. But what was even worse, is that they didn't allow me to check my bag in the last connection gettting to the US, instead they made me check it from my original destination which made me loose almost two days of work without giving me a logic response on why I couldn't check my bag from my inbound flight to the US. By the way, this protocol from TSA is terrible. No internet in their flights No chargers plugs in all of their flights (including the ones that take you more than 4 hours) Lunch in their 15 hours flight is mediocre, everyone was starving since they only gave us one mini empanada."
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "all my flights were delayed"
Pros: "The food you serve is good! We also appreciated the little gray packs of toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, etc. that you shared. The staff is very professional, and we enjoyed our flight,. We enjoyed the "quiet room" in the airport."
Cons: "I had a little trouble with the dvd monitor."
Pros: "flat bed business class seats"
Cons: "flight was delayed by more than four hours. as per the ground staff due to technical hitch but as per the pilot due to run way maintenance in COK. but there were other flights from Emirate, Jet, Ethihad all flying in and out without any issues, so doubt why only runway maintenance for QR.."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I didn't appreciate the fact that Qatar opened so late at the Abu Dhabi airport, nor did I appreciate that the woman who printed out my boarding pass royally screwed up and printed gate 8 , when in fact it was gate 3. That was total BS. Supposing I missed my flight due to her negligence ??"
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and helpful, the flight left on time and even arrived early"
Cons: "Seat 10H, the transition from coach to business class could be designed a little better so the service carts don't hit the seat occupant when they move between cabins"
Pros: "From start to finish the whole process with Qatar Airways was smooth and excellent."
Pros: "Almost nothing"
Cons: "Price"
Pros: "Food and drink options. Courteous."

Cons: "Take off delayed. Plane had air conditioning problems."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Was perfect"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "This was the worst airline I have flown with. I booked my tickets last minute, it was for me and my 4 month old son. I had 3 suitcases a stroller and 2 carryons. I had paid for the suitcases, but because I was traveling alone I went there with my husband and he politely asked if they could please take the carryons on the plane because she can’t carry everything by herself. The manager came out and said that we have to pay. I said I already paid extra for my suitcases please help us because my wife is carrying our son, the diaper bag and 2 carryons. He was rude stating that we have to pay each carryon. We didn’t have the extra money and my wife took everything with her. If that’s how Turkish Airline treats their customers, they shouldn’t be operating. It was the last time I use this airline. No dignity or humanity, it’s all only about the money. And when I took the stroller with my son. They made me package the stroller by myself looking that I had my son on me crying and when I asked for help they said that they can’t help me... unbelievable... they see me with 2 carryons a stroller and a baby and they can’t help me."
Pros: "All was really good"
Cons: "Long lines ( about 40 min) to get into transfer zone at the airport. I guess this is not aircompanu fault, but airport."

Pros: "Nothing much to shout about this flight. It got there safely?"
Cons: "At 31" the pitch is terrible for a tall guy like myself. The screen was old and unresponsive, and there wasn't even a pleasant crew to supplement. How it won Best European Airline befuddles me."
Pros: "The food was quite good"
Cons: "The new type of aircraft - less room between seats, entertainment system was poor, online check in didn't work, when I got to the airport I was sent away for an hour - was unable to get my prefered seat (window) by the time I had returned."

Pros: "Overall it was ok. I enjoyed the leg space."
Cons: "I suppose it's just a matter of different manners"
Pros: "kayak was poop for help for me."
Cons: "The flight from BTV to JKF was cancelled day of departure, within a mere 4 hours of take-off. I only received an email.... This, in turn, caused a domino effect for the remainder of my flights and travel plans. I had to PURCHASE brand new tickets and go through a refunding debacle, not through Kayak but another third party whom actually held the tickets. FIASCO is the word! Kayak did not even recognize the cancellation and continued to try and check me in to flights i was not on. Such a headache.. I will not be using this service in the future"

Pros: "Start from online checking, baggage dropped and boarding flight is a hidden tradition of high class hospitality experience. My first time ever to use Turkish airlines succeeded my expectations. food is great, the onboard seat is comfortable and the crews they're wonderful."
Cons: "Quietness and simplicity looks of high quality of crews presentation is a high class professional experience."
Pros: "Crew members were nice People were good at check in as well"
Cons: "It was ok but room to improve everywhere It's matter of process where it may help to choose international standards rather than follow ones preferences"
Pros: "Entertainment System, Food"

Pros: "I love everything about this airline. I'm a fanboy of Turkish airlines every time. Great in cabin entertainment, great service, always awesome aircrafts."
Cons: "i had asked for an aisle seat and ended up on seat 7C which is the one that is next to the seat where the stewardess sits down. I wouldn't have minded at all but my seat and the one next to it didnt recline anywhere near as much as every other seat in the whole airplane. It was really uncomfortable for me and the person who was seating next to me. Hopefully this will be the last time i get stuck in that kind of seat."
Pros: "Everything, it's just straightforward and good, the only thing I don't like it's no direct flights from my local airport, but if I have to go via Istanbul then Turkish airlines it's my preferred carrier."

Cons: "boarding process"
Pros: "Tv and food also attendants"
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "Everything apart from the un-explained wait in the boarding region."
Cons: "We stood at the boarding gate for nearly an hour....otherwise no complaints."

The flight was a transit and I had my boarding pass from the departure. I have talked to the check in person to set me up close to my family seats and ended up with my wife in one seat, 3 years old son in different seat and myself on different seat. very disappointing and overwhelming.

New aircraft, new and modern. Crew could be a little more smiling.

Pros: "Good evening, this is Sarah Al-Makhlouf. I booked a ticket from your website, but it happened to me a great deal. My ticket was from Riyadh to Bahrain, but when I went to the airport, I could not get on the plane, and the reason was that the flight was going to Dubai, not to Bahrain. Is there any solution to this issue, And where is my money? I will send you the ticket in the e-mail, and at the airport they said that it is not strange on your site that the traveler falls into this problem, how can you sell tickets to a particular destination without making sure, who bears the responsibility now?"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Veg Biryani instead of pasta plz"
Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing"
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
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: "If there was no bus to the aircraft."
Pros: "On time flight Good services New aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Return flights delayed. Delay same as flight time so not great."

Pros: "Excellent value for money fare All Gulf flights I have been on recently (12) were on time Comfortable seats in economy Excellent entertainment system Plane not full so plenty of room. Gulf often not full so well worth a try."

Pros: "The plane was clean and food was provided in a timely manner. The bathrooms were well located and I did not have to wait to go. Movie selection was not as expansive as I had expected but was still enough to pass the time."
Cons: "The plane seemed to have a signal jammer so I could not send any messages before we pulled out of the gate.

Cons: "The trip was scheduled to depart at 18:30. Arrived Airport around 16:30 to be shocked that the flight was delayed to 01:50 next day (i.e. seven and half hours). The ground staff advised that the flight was rescheduled to the new timing two days before. RJ ground staff claims that they informed all travel agents of the new timing. I verified with my company and the travel agent and they advised that RJ did not contact them at all. The irony is that I am an RJ Royal Plus Gold Frequent flyer member and RJ has all my contacts details and send me emails and messages all the time, but they fail to alert me at such critical and urgent situation. Most annoying that the ground staff did not even apologize for me and the other passengers specially the European old man in a wheelchair. Instead of arriving Amman at a civilized 19:30 we arrived the nest day at 04:00 next morning. Big blunder Royal Jordanian."
Pros: "Nice and spacious plane"
Cons: "Delayed boarding No wifi or no cell phone service once boarded, passengers should be told in advance they will not have service when boarded"
Cons: "zero entertainment..the worst movies and music mix..not enough food"
Pros: "Very short, only a half hour flight"
Cons: "nothing not to like"
Pros: "The entire experience was truly great! Crew is very professional, friendly, and accomodating! Very comfy plane, great food and a wide variety of entertainment!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Great Customer Service, Great Food and very friendly staff"
Cons: "My experience with Royal Jordanian was great"
Pros: "The aircraft, the service"
Cons: "I ordered kosher meals and they arrived frozen to a degree I could not eat it. The movies did not have any subtitle options, except Arabic. They should at least have English subtitles"
Pros: "I loved the food - some of the best I've ever had in the air! There was a plentiful array of free movies and TV shows available for free. There was room to stretch out in the seats."
Cons: "I found the process of the layover in Amman to be confusing. Apparently, I could not get a free hotel for my layover. I tried to use the Crown Lounge as well but was told I could only use it (and pay to use it) during certain hours, which was confusing."
Cons: "The plane was severely outdated. Trays falling down all the time. Half the tv screens didn't work. The planes need a serious overhaul."
Pros: "Flight itself was great ... attentive service, nice airplane, food and beverages even when it's a short flight"
Cons: "Check-in in the Cairo airport: different lines led to large differences in processing time ... our line also processed business class which led to us taking over one hour for check-in (basically being the last one) and having to run through security even when we arrived rather early. No initiative by the check-in attendants to balance between the lines. When they opened two more counters to process check-in they only processed the 'fast' line. Pro tip: avoid the (economy) check-in line next to the business counter. This probably led to the second problem ... they gave us separate seats when traveling with a young child."
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "Very early boarding and push back."
Pros: "I like the selection of movies and the timing of the meals and snacks. A great crew did a nice job bringing around water, etc. They picked out a real nice seat for me on the way back home. Middle aisle and no one else in the row so I could move to the middle when the lady behind me kept on kicking the back of my seat. (-: Compared to other flights the RT price was reasonable and I could go direct from NYC into Amman."
Cons: "Speaking English only made it hard at boarding to know what was going on but when I went up, I still didn't know if it was my turn or not, the smiled and waved me on."
Pros: "A 25 minutes of flight- there was no food or VOD"
Cons: "It would have been nice to see the flight info during the dlight on the screens"
Pros: "Lots of movies or tv shows to choose from in entertainment system. There were only 20 people on my flight, so lots of room to spread out."
Cons: "Smooth flight excellent food on time service. Professional staff."
Cons: "And to make it better. Allianz insurance didn't give me my refund."
Cons: "Cabin was very warm and the arm rest was missing the top leather piece. Plane seemed very old and worn out."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and the flight was fast."
Cons: "They said boarding would start at 5:45 but didn't actually start until 6:10"
Pros: "On time, easy flight, process was predictable from start to finish."
Cons: "Waiting area for this flight is more like a hangar than a proper airline terminal - dirty carpet, florescent lights, loud. It's in stark contrast to the rest of the Amman airport which is quite comfortable and sleek."
Pros: "Most of the attendants where very helpful."
Cons: "We were 5 family members scattered throughout the plane. The attendants tried very little to help us get seats close to each other."
