A long haul flight needs roomy and comfortable seats.

Will travel again

Take off and landing the smoothest I have ever experienced,. The crew were awesome and their overall services excellent.

Ok

Service excellence as always

The airport staff of Qatar airlines was UNFRIENDLY and UNHELPFUL. They all acted like we were bothering them. They gave no help in moving from one station to another. In general they gave an extremely bad first impression of Qatar airlines!!

Very good service, all were ok/excellent

Lost my luggage.

Cons: "Food options were very similar. And the pre-made meals are hit or miss"
Pros: "The seating was very uncomfortable and cramped I"

Cons: "waited for 2 hours upon immigration clearance, not sure what was the issue. ground handling only updated there was a delay. baggage didn't get loaded onto carousel until 2 hours after landing. horrible"

Cons: "Food. Meals are of poor quality. Bland in taste and rubbery texture."
Pros: "Because I was in the bulkhead seat - it was good."
Cons: "My first flight arrived 30 min late which meant that my 50-minute layover was tight. But instead of holding the next plane for us, they forced us to re-book on a flight leaving 14 hours later! I was not ok with this so I pushed the issue and they put me on the flight leaving 6hrs later. :-((((("
Cons: "Boarding, restroom,"
Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Everything thing is fine"
Cons: "For deboarding they used stairs (not ramps) at their hub in Doha - must be some sort of new innovation to improve fitness. The Wifi onboard was in name only - it was so slow you wouldn't notice it is working or not - i flew Qatar because they claimed to have Wifi- hugely disappointed."
Cons: "At Mumbai airport, during check-in I was told that my carry on bag plus personal item together should weigh not more than 7kgs!! I have never had any airline actually weigh my personal item (laptop backpack) before this journey. Eventually I ended up stuffing my check-in bags with everything I was carrying in my carry on bag before I was allowed to check in. The weird thing is, I was never told about this rule on my journey from the US to India."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Did not serve vegetarian food even after repeated requests"
Pros: "Great crew and food served was nice for airline food."

Pros: "Crew was good, they were trying hard to keep customers happy."
Cons: "Limited food selection on top they ran out of available options so basically only one beef option was given. Either u like it or not. Pretty old movies in entertainment section, broken seat controls, charging ports and headphone inputs. No clear announcements by captain."
Pros: "I was really impressed by how nice caring and wonderful were the flight attendants!!! Excellent service!!! Great food!!!"
Cons: "Dirty old plane"

Pros: "On time, good crew, easy connection."
Cons: "Hard and tight seats for such long night flight."
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Pros: "Free upgrade"
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 ??"

MISTAKE INCREDIBBLE TERRIBLE GUEST SERVICE

Pros: "Sits are very comfortable and the food is amazing."
Cons: "The door from the US plane was closed in front of our nose and the staff was extremely rude.In Boston the Turkish Airlines representative from the luggage transfers didn't have a clue what he's doing. It was a complete disaster. So, the 1:10hrs between Cluj and Istambul is not enough for an US flight. You guys must schedule more time so people can get to the US plane on time. The Airline is amazing, good food, good crew, great sits, but please work on this schedule because it's so exhausting to stay an additional 11 hours on the road."
Cons: "My bag was lost"
Pros: "On time, friendly, good food"
Pros: "Crew and flight itself was great."
Cons: "As expected, the plane and seats were okay (borderline mediocre). The food wasn't enough and the choices (rather the lack of) were poor. The seats could be better and not particularly comfortable for a long haul flight."
Pros: "Professional nice food"
Cons: "Trip delay"
Pros: "Entertainment options good"
Pros: "Food and service is excellent. Istanbul lounge is great."
Cons: "Delayed in both directions. Happens. But zero announcements. Zero. Staff didn't know what was going on. Complete chaos."
Pros: "Largely pain free experience"
Pros: "The crew was really friendly and responsive. Boarding was easy and hassle free because Business class passengers had to go through a seperate gate to board."
Cons: "The food was OK, especially the appetizer as it was all cheese and since I dont like cheese, I rate it poor. The inflight entertainment was good but there was a lack of choices in music and tv shows."
Pros: "Food"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Inflight service was good."
Cons: "Seat was a little uncomfy"
Pros: "Plane clean, newish. Went up, took us there, landed."
Cons: "The food - I always have a v-meal - is sadly inadequate. Not enough of it, and very unimaginative. And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row. The entertainment system kept dropping playback, (crashing) so I would have to restart playing the video. Something similar happened on another Turkish flight."
Cons: "Totally desorganized boarding, wrong door on ticket, no priority line....just not the way you expect things done by Turkish Airlines"
Pros: "Nothing Really Nothing"
Cons: "1. Flight late from Berlin to Istanbul. 2. That's mean missing my next flight from Istanbul to Riyadh. 3. I add extra baggage in TKL Airport : my original bag is 23 kg I have until 32kg, The extra baggage was 20kg, So I pay 247 Euro each extra kg 19 Euro. 4. In Istanbul airport they said your next flight tomorrow at 20pm. 5. I have important meeting in morning and my jop in the evening. 6. They changed my teket from turkish airline to Saudi airline 4.00pm, That's mean no different. 7. I ask about my baggage in turkish airline deck they said don't worry every thing will be okay. 8. I ask for hotel they said you have to make visa cost 60 dollars and you know I have to pay taxi and Chang money... Pla Pla, Actually this is not respecting and very bad organization. 9. I didn't make visa and stay from that time until 3.pm in primum lungs. 10. I went to Saudi airline deck to take my boarding. 11. They said you have extra baggage, I explain them that I payed already to turkish airline. 12. They said you have to go back to turkish airline deck about this extra kg's. 13. I did going back to them they said we cannot do anything, leave one bag here and we send the other one later. Actually this stupid airline and this stupid employee's dealing with me like a stupid, all my time I walk every where in that stupid airport, they just gives me orders and I have to follow like it was my mistake. 14. I showed my alfursan membership to Saudi airline deck and they helped me. 15. When I arrived to Riyadh my baggage wasn't there, this is mean that this stupid turkish people that the have to work on barbcue and haircut, but airports jop needs professional people. That's was my first and last flight with them."

Pros: "There is simply nothing to like. Whilst other airlines give peoooe a nice hotel room to spend the night on their trunk flights, Turkish airlines offers."

Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "They made us wait for 2 hours out in the open on a winter night. They wouldn't let us in the terminal. It was outrageous. Everyone was extremely rude."
Pros: "Another excellent business class service from the team at Turkish Airlines. The food offering was high quality, and the little cultural influences made it an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "The cabin design is perhaps looking a little dated and tired compared to some of its business class competitors. This was also true of comparing the 3 flights I had on a Boing 777 model versus one of the short haul legs on a more modern Airbus."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "At gate sign advertised their lie flat beds in business.. we were on business. No lie flat beds!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Would highly recommend"

Cons: "Heathrow T2 Business class checkin wasn’t clearly signed from entrance. If someone was next to me I would not have enjoyed not having aisle access. Water should be served more regularly without having to ask."

Cons: "Plane was old, felt more squished and the seats did not decline. Also very note."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Long waits, poor communication, either too warm or too cold"

Pros: "Entertaiment was good with choices on the latest movies and live sports channels. Boarding was fast enough and the crew are friendly."
Cons: "The seats are not able to be lowered and for a 11.5hrs flight, thats really painful. Food wasnt really tasty and portion seems smaller compare to other flights i had been on."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Efficient and clean with decent size seats but not to the standards of the MIddle eastern airlines. Good if compared to a intra-europe flight."
Cons: "Seats we’re tight and not what’s expected these days for a night flight over three hours Internationally."
Pros: "I liked the overall plane journey."
Cons: "Flight was delayed which caused us to miss our connection flight."
Pros: "Everything was well taken care of."

Cons: "Not enough movie varities."
Cons: "They didn't have my special meal"
Pros: "Good comfort, staff friendly and smiling. Passport control, security and boarding were straightforward."
Cons: "No boarding pass available online in advance for flights from Nicosia (neither electronic nor printed). Only to be collected at the airport. As a result , although I had no hold luggage (only cabin bag), I had to queue at the check-in/drop-baggage desk to obtain my boarding pass! This is the old prehistoric system dating back to the last century."
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Ordered veggie meal didn't turn up!"
Pros: "Crew and efficiency"
Cons: "Too hot in the plain"
Pros: "Food okay"
Cons: "TV/Movie/music were not working. The temperature in the plane was very hot throughout flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"
Pros: "Extras provided - eye mark, socks etc"
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. My husband and I were moved to a middle aisle (although we really didn't want to share) only to find that the foot rest at my foot rest was also faulty. It was an uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was good and the flight attendants were very nice. They offered us small sandwiches and drinks during the flight so it was comfortable to fly with them."
Cons: "You need to buy a visa if you want to enter the country and they only accept USD, Euros or GBP. The only currency exchange is on the other side of passport control so you have to use one of the ATMs and they only give you $100. The staff is unprofessional and seems clueless when you ask them for help. The kiosks are a nightmare and working with them is worse than working with the people. They freeze, and glitch and many of them just flat out don't work. Probably one of the worst airports I've ever been to."
Cons: "The gate from Boston to Cairo in Istanbul is too far away. My plane left Boston one hour late so I had only about 50 mn to run from gate 200 to gate 712. Also in Boston the called all the family with children from business AND from economy to board first the we the Business we started to boarded after which was one hour after boarding time. That was REDICULOUS. Turkish Airline team was so slow and unprofessional unlike the team in Istanbul. But on the plane the service and food was excellent. Mervat Ali"

Missed the flight due to delay of gulf airlines .. and there is no representative in London to discuss about the problem .. we waited about a day no one responded from airline , they rebooked us 2 days after and didn’t have accommodations.. worst behavior ever … expecting atleast a response either positive or negative from airline … it would be serious issue with AA and gulf haven’t resolve this issue … impact would be on gulf

all good. crew wasnt attentive to the announcements they were making about the flight. made several mistakes at several tines while announcing destination, arrival time. first officer made this mistake too.

Greeting BH International Airport, Flight No. GF-2101 From Bahrain to Dammam At 1:35 am. to 2:20 am. Booking reference: WFYQEG I was informed that I will receive my baggage in Dammam Airport, later on I arrived in Dammam and I didn’t get my baggage, they claimed due to my friend Mr. Faisal didn’t show because he left the Airport and drive his own car all the way to Dammam. OK, I get it and I totally respect the system when you don’t show up your baggage get dropped from the flight, but it’s not my fault when i stay in Bahrain Airport waiting for my next flight around 5 hours then once i get to Dammam I don’t receive my baggage, because my friend who’s didn’t show up his baggage was arrived to Dammam airport, and i’m the one who deserve to get his own baggage didn’t receive anything. I think you mixed up between our baggage, the tag on my bag has his name but actually it’s mine and his bag has my name but actually it’s for him, that’s why I received his bag in DMM airport and I didn’t get mine and i was so frustrated. Also here’s the baggage numbers: GF 175011 My baggage wasn’t received GF 175008 His baggage was received and he don’t deserve to receive it because he left the airport and didn’t show up the flight For now i need to get my baggage to DMM airport please or contact me in personal please +966559600495 or this email. Kind regards, Mohammed Sent from my iPhone

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?"

They even refused to check if I have made an online chick in. The gulf air online system, did not show me that I have made an online checkin. Unfortunately, the problem was solved by asking someone who work in the airport ( not gulf airlines representative) to check if I have made and online check in and to issue me a ticket to pass through the security control"

Cons: "Crew was loud not professional."
Pros: "The food and services in Bahrain airport and in plane"
Pros: "We landed safely and everyone got off the plane."
Cons: "Gulf air has decided to do "silent boarding" - so we were late boarding our flight because even though we watched the gate- it never filled up, there were never lines, no announcements, no lights signaling anything. Our captain took VERY sharp and hard dips and turns during our flight. He even dropped altitude so quickly that some women on board yelled out in terror. No announcements were made as well by the crew or captain regarding these very uncommon experiences of turbulence or announcements to remain with ones seat belt fastened. Finally, the man driving the bus from the plane to the door at Manama airport was too busy talking to the men who decided to sit in the front seat of the passenger bus and not look on the road in a busy air traffic area. I'm literally blown away at how everyone was safe and made it from point a to point b. I'm also horrified at the lack of communication or safety precautions."
Pros: "Timing and service"
Cons: "Everything about the flight"
Pros: "We where on time and it was very nice smooth landing BZ"
Cons: "Nil"
Pros: "The crew is extremely attentive without being intrusive. They provided anything we requested. Food was excellent. The hot towels, mint lemonade, and dates before takeoff were great touches. The business class seats are the same ones I've seen in 1st Class on other carriers. Holding a business ticket earns you access to the Falcon Gold lounge in Bahrain where we also received excellent service and ate great food. They are clearly trying to earn recognition as a top airline."

Good was not good

i dont like the crew if i order any hot drink they refuse and they dont bring our luggage for 3 days we wait from Riyadh to Paris

I couldn’t board the plane since they had suspended my tickets and asked me to purchase new ones but flight was sold out so missed the flight and spent 24 hours in the country spending money to drive 4 hours to Amman and hotel and fees to change my international flight home.

Cons: "Absolutely the worst flight and airport I have ever experienced. I will never travel royal Jordanian ever again!"

Pros: "Should be there are arrangement for bording we found all the travelers bording on the same time and those people more than on bags and over size can not fit on the cabaint, then the people on front seat can not find space for small hand bag, flight attendant dissapaer all time of travel , children walking inspire of the alarm of seatbeat light ON, toilet are very dirty no body clean it"
Cons: "Like from air lines to check the size and number of bags for the passengers boarding to allow the other to put their bags on the cabaint , and give more instructions for fligth attendees"
Pros: "I kept calling the airline and no one answered to change the dates because of a passport emergency and ended up missing the flight"
Cons: "No one answers in case of emergenciess"
Pros: "The fact it was a direct flight, for the price of round trip can't really complain but for any cost above what we purchased our tickets would have been extremely disappointed."
Cons: "Small seats no room to even move, food was awful and service on plane was not so friendly nor accommodating."
Pros: "On time both at departure and arrival. Economy in the 787 is comfortable with better leg room than usual. Baggage claim was excellent"
Cons: "The toilets could have better attended to. Entertainment screen in my seat froze and couldn't be used."
Pros: "Pretty much on time and organized"
Cons: "Leg room is tight. okay for a short flight but would be uncomfortable on a longer flight."
Pros: "Nothing to like on this trip"
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: "It was a short and efficient flight."
Pros: "Very good and friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment need a refresh"
Pros: "It’s a 25 minute flight. It’s all good. :)"
Pros: "All new"

Pros: "l did not get any of 12 bags that I put in the airplane."
Pros: "The plane was nice and clean."
Cons: "The food wasn't that good for me, the dessert was good. Not all the crew members were friendly with the passengers."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Loved all of the kind smiling faces on all of the flight attendants"
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."
Pros: "Great flight. No problems in tranzfreing in Amman. Great airline."
Pros: "Calling out rows for boarding was extremely helpful and organized!"
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "Very early boarding and push back."
Pros: "More food please"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable, staff was extremly friendly"
Cons: "Boarding the plane was very disorganized on return"
Pros: "Crew were helpful most of the time."

Pros: "Every thing"
