Pros: "I couldn’t eat the chicken for lunch, and I told the crew to change it for me and bring the vegetarian, but nobody brought anything. I was starving until the next meal."
Cons: "Take out the chicken sausage from your menu"

Pros: "N"

Cons: "Qatar Airways could improve food selection for business class."

Pros: "Response is the same as above"

Pros: "Really good"

Pros: "No WiFi in most of the flight duration"

Pros: "I really appreciated that my bags were not lost"

Cons: "Just had a hard time finding flight attendants. Every time I went to the back of the plane, half a dozen of them were sitting around and chatting it up. Felt guilty for asking for water. Not the service that I expected from Qatar Airways. All 4 flights were a struggle to get proper service."

Cons: "The seats are smaller than other airlines.My entertainment system stopped working mid-flight on a 16 hour flight from Doha to LAX.Food portion is not enough. No hot towels on boarding, no welcome drink or snacks. Food is served only twice on a 16 hour flight.Rude immigration officers"

Pros: "Excellent service with attention to detail"
Cons: "lay-flat seats fairly uncomfortable in the lay-flat position (does not compare to the Q Suite used on newer aircraft) Entertainment system a bit dated, but decent selection"

Pros: "Overall great service!"

Pros: "I liked that the flight was not full and I was able to use the entire row of seats and lie down as straight as possible to get some sleep. The crew was very friendly and allowed us to sleep most of the flight --- I guess they figured that most of the travelers prefer to just sleep and not be disturbed during a 15-hour flight. There was a good selection of movies and shows to watch to pass the time. I liked that there was time to go on the city tour of Doha and that there is a counter at the airport for the city tour."
Cons: "My flight started in Kathmandu and the layover for the connecting flight from Doha to LAX was 12 hours. I hope Qatar can come up with a schedule that will reduce the layover down to less hours while still giving passengers time to go on the city tour, if they want to."

Pros: "Great crew and food served was nice for airline food."
Cons: "You need to bring a snack with you. This is a 16 hour flight and there is a long time between their food services. 2 meals and one snach"

Cons: "TOOO long."

Pros: "I got an aisle seat. Bathrooms were not bad in terms of cleanliness."
Cons: "Service was ok. I was forgotten to be served items that other passengers were given. Seating ended up being kind of cramped as passenger in front was relaxing a bit too much. Entertainment was ok."

Pros: "Business class was good Cabin crew service was impeccable Vegetarian meals were good Need more choices"
Cons: "Old aircraft Toilets were non functional but the crew kept them clean Entertainment systems were not functioning with remote Need complete overhaul of these Not enjoyable on a long flight"

Pros: "Direct nonstop flight out of Doha, Qatar. It’s a 16 hour flight, so I’d suggest fly business if you can."
Cons: "None to rant about."

Pros: "Great service, friendly and helpful"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Food was good, staff was excellent."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment and food was good."
Cons: "Long flight from Doha to LA."

Pros: "very nice crew please have good dessert"

Cons: "Thanks"

Cons: "The employees were not motivated to work. Food was scarce and I was left starving the whole flight. On a 16 hour flight, there should be more food and beverage service other than the 2 times the attendants served us. How can we stay hydrated if we aren't being given any liquids?"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Again amazing wonderful flight attendants!!! Excellent service!!! I'm sooo impressed!!! Great food!"

Pros: "Good attitude from staff"

Pros: "Very nice arrangements, the seats were comfortable, the food was delicious, and the staff could not have been more hospitable. I would be delighted to fly with Qatar Airways again."

Pros: "crew were all very nice & eager to please. they did keep refreshing the bathrooms which was needed."
Cons: "seat was next to bathrooms which were used constantly & the noise made it difficult to sleep. seat did not recline & seemed to be at an uncomfortable angle. flight was full so nothing could be done. entertainment very out dated as far as movies & you do need them on a 16 hour flight!"

Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"

Pros: "Same"

Cons: "Seats in economy very uncomfortable for long Doha to LAX flight. When person in front of us reclines seat for entire flight, it is almost impossible to get out to stretch legs or go to restroom. At the minimum, crew should ask all passengers to raise seats during meal service as a courtesy to those behind them. This is done on other airlines."

Pros: "Nt bad"
Cons: "Attendants were skiving at the back"

Pros: "on time no one in my row so i got to sleep good food"
Cons: "enoyed it all"

Pros: "Staff were polite and helpful. Flight was smooth and on time. Overall very good considering length of flight and difficulty of accommodating such a large crowd for such a long time."
Cons: "Meal service was very disappointing. 16 hour flight with one meal at the beginning, one meal at end, and a small, rather unappetizing hot pocket like sandwich in between? And snack offerings were ice cream, potato chips, candy bars and a few apples (ran out of apples). Need more healthy options. There needs to be a more full meal/snack offering around the half way mark if you are going to keep people from grumbling."

Pros: "New plane. Decent legroom."
Cons: "Not enough food was served for a 16.5 hour 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: "Cabin crew were excellent, very nice and accomodating"
Cons: "Check in staff and customer service reps were unprofessional and unhelpful. We had an 8 hour layover on both legs, no access to the lounge or a hotel was provided. I explained we were on our way to our wedding and it would be nice to have some rest. They were rude with the way they told us no, they even suggested we sleep on the floor of the airport. We ended up paying for the lounge, but then so did about 1000 other people, there was no room for us to sit together. My wife's allergy free meal wasn't provided on the first flight. We had to speak to about 5 people to get a meal ticket at the airport and they were very reluctant to give us one. I told them she was hungry and needed to eat. They told us we could take the meal we got with the ticket on board, when we went to use the ticket we had no choice in meal, were given a coke at 6am and weren't allowed to heat up our meal or take it on board. In summary, all the cabin crew on all 4 flights were excellent. Staff at Doha airport were incredibly poor."

Pros: "The food was amazing and so were the staff, would definitely fly Qatar again and recommend it to others!"
Cons: "The layover is very short, my first flight from LAX to Doha was 40 mins late so I barely made last call from Doha to Dubai and my bags didn't make it. I did however have my luggage delivered the next day to where I was staying in Al Ain for free so that was great!"

Pros: "Overall - Flight was good."
Cons: "Food quality should be improved. Most of the staff were very courteous, except on two minor request. I guess the stewardess was a little stress due a very demanding passenger, but should not be reflected to other customers."

Pros: "Qatar airways always seems to handle busy flights and crammed seats calmly, efficiently and on time. It's a long haul - 16+ hours, and if you have to go economy as a 6 foot tall person, their seats recline well, seemingly better than many. You have to plan your long layovers, and they do offer assistance with hotel transfers, but they don't advertise this very clearly - so do your homework before flying!"

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: "From start to finish the whole process with Qatar Airways was smooth and excellent."

Pros: "I liked the food and the entertainment ."
Cons: "My seat was broken so I sat up right for 16 hours. To top it off I needed to use the toilet REALLY bad but was denied even though we were SITTING on the runway for 20 mins. When I FINALLY get to use the toilet, after a smaller Asian girl and a taller Indian girl were getting bags of blankets out of, I leave a WOODEN CLIPBOARD full of VERY important papers that will cost me inside. Yet when I call to retrieve them they are "nowhere to be found" so you're telling me out of those 2 women, the Indian gentleman, the black woman & the other Asian woman back there didn't notice a clipboard when I was the only person back there trying to use the toilet or they simply threw a wooden and metal clipboard away ?? With what was clearly paperwork clipped onto it ? The girl at the service desk of Qatar airways claims to have looked herself. But she was rushing me off of the phone so I don't feel like she remotely cared even a little. I am PAST unhappy. So thank you for throwing my paperwork away I know for sure was left behind. Very thorough team."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very courteous and attentive. Comfortable seats and smooth flight. Didn't feel that the flight lasted for 16 hours."
Cons: "Food needs to be asked for rather than offered."

Pros: "bathrooms had liquid on the floor sloshing around from about 1 hr after take off. Flight attendants need a disposable towel to put down. Nasty bathroom are not pleasant."
Cons: "i was blessed with 3 seats in a row. Had trouble lying down because the arm rests don't go up all the way. The seat belt connectors were not recessed, so they poked me in the side. The movie selection was only so - so. See the selection from Singapore airlines if you want to see a good example. I have many food allergies - for the sweet & savory snacks, the ingredients are in Latin - like a place holder ready for when they get the real words to put there. e.g. dolorem ipsum ..."

Pros: "***You're asking me about a flight that hasn't happened yet. I'm rating my flight FROM LOS ANGELES TO DOHA, 10/23/2016, here: Flight attendants were very good, helpful, gracious. For a long flight the restrooms stayed clean."
Cons: "The food was over cooked, and lacked freshness. I had to have the same meal twice because they ran out of the omelettes. Next time I will try Emirates."

Pros: "Almost nothing"
Cons: "Price"

Pros: "Absolute epic flight in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. Thank you all the crews. You’ve done amazing job!"

Pros: "Asiana air is so nice, they give all customers slipper to feel comfortable on flight."
Cons: "Food is just so so and they should give snack for long flights."

Pros: "음식"
Cons: "스튜어디스 분이 애들이 우니까 귀찬은 표정을 지으셧고, 애들 밥도 배식때 빼먹고, 애가 화장실 가려고 기다리는데 배식 차를 비켜주지 않아서 되게 오래 기다렸고, 결국 다른 엄마가 비켜 달라고 해서 비켜주고, 비행기 착륙전에 애기 우니까 따든다고 사탕을 갖구와서 안 먹겟 다는데 억지로 입안에 넣어 줬다."

Pros: "on-plane flight operation is very good"
Cons: "back-office support is very poor. for example they sent me an email before the departure date in Korean only."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly, greeted everyone with smiles. They seem to accommodate most requests, just be polite! There were a few people on my flight that were not the most friendly to them, but the attendants still tried to help as much as they could. Food is pretty good. I mean, don't be expecting a 5 star meal, it's still airplane food... International flight so I got 2 free checked bags, which was really nice."
Cons: "It's a small thing but the Chinese and Japanese movies only have Korean subtitles, it'd be nice if they had English too. Deplaning - the only exit is from the front of the plane, so it takes a while because there's 70-something rows of passengers."

Pros: "Stewardesses were great!"

Pros: "More leg room than any airline I have flown in economy. Nice staff."

Cons: "Delay, delay, delay from boarding, taking off to baggage arrival. Staff wasn't too attentive to passengers considering all the delay for example, giving ample snack for the late dinner. The dinner was terrible, options were horrid for non Koreans. The chicken was pink w old texture. Quality of food was immensely poor for Asiana. The staff on our row weren't pleasant and consistently didn't serve water or any liquids during this long flight."

Cons: "The people in the back of me was so rude, they did not let me put my seat back although the Asiana staff told me I could, but they just kept complaining."

Cons: "Everything was good."

Pros: "I love the new A380 but wonder why even a new plane comes with ashtrays in the bathroom..."
Cons: "was not informed I would have to pass through security screening in Seoul. I grabbed some beers in the Hanoi airport as souvenirs but had to turn them in when changing planes in Seoul."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "A bit delayed but still arrived almost on schedule"

Cons: "Seat needs more cushioning"

Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "Yes amazing"

Pros: "second time my flight was delayed for no apparent reason"

Pros: "Turkish is always good Didn't know kayak was associated with justfly Loved the kayak notifications. MADEAHUGE difference"

Pros: "Entertainment package"
Cons: "I paid extra money for the upgrade to sit the exit but only to be told after boarding that due to my size and age that I can’t sit on the exit aisle. Then I said okay, I’ll move if I get a refund and the the flight attendant said that they will. So then I swapped to a middle seat by the attendants directive all the way in the back. After the plane takes off, the flight attendant said that can not refund me the upgrade. I was extremely frustrated and felt discriminated because of my age and size. I demanded to sit back to my original assigned seat but they refused. Not to mention, the flight was delayed!! Unpleasant experience and a rip off."

Pros: "The transfer gates are always further away and there is no staff at the gates to help you. It's always a mad dash to catch your connecting flight. Turkish airport should consider transferring passengers with close connections through a faster line. Also, the security screening between flights doesn't offer any priority for passengers with tight connections"

Cons: "THE bathroom esp at the back of the plan read very dirty. Went floors a d trash that was overflowing."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours before take off."

Cons: "our luggages were left in instanbul so when we arrived in kenya we waited for long before being told our bags were left in instanbul,were had to come next day to collect,stressful experience because we were staying like 80 miles away"

Cons: "Very hot inside the plane"

Pros: "It was great. I told everyone about it."

Pros: "Entertainment is good, many movies and games for kids."
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude and food was terrible! No menu and no selection to choose."

Cons: "You had a very disrespectful, illogical, anal retentive person at the ticket gate just before getting on the shuttle. She would not allow us to wait for the rest of our party of 2 to go on the shuttle to the plane together. They were delayed because of your personal continually bringing other people to cut in line in front of them. There was plenty of time and the shuttle was already full, and we wanted to wait for the next shuttle to board the airplane together. She came out several times from inside of the building shouting at the three of us to get on the shuttle even when the person managing the shuttle flow at the bottom of the stairs was about to let us wait for the next shuttle. What was her problem(?) - she could use a lot more people skills and realize who pays her salary - the customers. She really tarnished the whole image and impression I originally had of TA. Also, there was no way to go to the bathroom without going through a long line of security again at the last gate before the shuttle which did not make sense."

Pros: "Free movies that are current, Free food/drinks/alcohol, Pillow, blanket, eye blinds, slippers, socks. The flight was 12+ hours long, and the ability to watch movies, tv shows, play games, listen to music on the large pad in each seat was pretty amazing. Free over the ear headphones... Very amazing flight"
Cons: "Bathrooms were a bit dirty...but there was a lot of people on the flight and they didn't start dirty."

Cons: "Signage at IST for transit should be better to explain security and passport requirements"

Cons: "My luggage just disappeared on my second leg to Istanbul. 2 email notifications that luggage was not found. Wrong contact phone number at initial report and was not addressed despite report and upload. Also a representative emailed that luggage was erroneously recorded as "delivered" which is not true. I still don't have my luggage after 14 days. No further responses despite extensive documentation and receipts. This is bad!!!"

Pros: "1) The vegan meals were outstanding. 2) The free movies helped a lot! 3) The Cherry Juice is Sooooo good!"
Cons: "I asked to be move from 13D (isle) to 23G (isle) They stuck me in 23E (middle) and insisted it was a middle."

Pros: "Every thing was ok"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to weather conditions, that's fine! I never found out till I had to contact the airlines and verify of this piece of information after I heard it from news. Kayak never notified me, nor offered any alternatives!! Poor service!"

Cons: "boarding the treat you like animals"

Cons: "Our flight was LAX > Istanbul > Oman The connection in Istanbul was canceled. The transfer desk was very overwhelmed by the volume of customers. After 3 hours of waiting I finally got someone to get us on a flight to Qatar and then to our final destination Oman. That person then left work before printing the tickets and I had to start all over again. It was a very stressful and tiring ordeal and cost us an entire day of our vacation."

Cons: "The flight from Los angeles was 3 hours late when I got to Instanbul Turkey was nobody there to help us I lost my flight and they lie to us about available flights I ask them to speak to a supervisor they told me the only Supervisor was outside the airport they wanted me to pay $30 for a visa and go through customs was the first time I flew Turkish airways and will be the last one"

Pros: "One stewardess was very helpful, even though she could not speak English."
Cons: "13 1/2 hour flight three rows from the rear of the plane. I feel and smell like a sardine. The food was horrid. I tasted it, but thought best of eating it for fear of food poisoning. It also looked disgusting. Couldn't understand any of the announcements."

Pros: "Quality experience all the way around"

Cons: "Had to cancel due tp safety situation in Turkey (bombings, Dept of State warning). I had flight insurance but Kayak did not refund a dime."

Cons: "I like it everything. Turkish airline was great flight with great food and great service during the flight , great way to flight , thumbs up Turkish airline !!!"

Cons: "Delay in receiving luggage ,"

Pros: "Good flight with plenty of entertainment and food!b"

Pros: "that we got to check in 2 bags"
Cons: "-lost one of my bags"

Pros: "Very bad experience i have to think twice before I book airfare now !!"
Cons: "They need to have emergency back up plans for the passengers who is stuck in the airport it must be international law!"

Pros: "Nice hotel, meals, and transport, plus $$."
Cons: "Had to stay over two nights. Could not make original connection in Istanbul, stayed over at my expense. Flight overbooked, stayed over at Turkish Airlines expense."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Worst airline I have flown, avoid if at all possible. We saved $400 each on a long haul flight from LAX connecting through IST and we should have spent the extra money. Flight attendants are extremely rude, not helpful, the food is terrible, the planes are all old Boeing 777-300 likely purchased second hand and seem to be falling apart on the inside. I saw flight attendants kicking, punching, and body slamming carts and other items to get them to fit in their racks in the kitchen areas, I hate to think what that means for safety of critical items. Just stay away for your safety and sanity"

Cons: "I was charged $65.00 for checked luggage; my layover was only 50 minuets and had to rush...last person to board."

Cons: "Just deaiappointed"

Cons: "(1) The captain collected headsets 30 minutes before landing, causing us to miss the last 15 minutes of a movie. Why? (2) Very long cues for toilet use. (3) The baggage took more than half hour to arrive. (4) The chair in front of me reclined very far (more than those on its sides), making it very hard to eat, get up, or read. Need better maintenance."

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "The rolls that came with the food. Too hard - not fresh enough. No big deal, just saying...."

Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "I was traveling with other people and we were not seated next to each other. And I got sick from the chicken."

Pros: "Great departure time. Super comfortable even in coach."
Cons: "The second meal was a bit skimpy and not so tasty."

Pros: "Flight on time. When you are able to get a hold of flight attendants, they do take note of your requests."
Cons: "Entertainment kept freezing up and needed reboot. Crew didn’t answer to the call-for-attendant signal"

Pros: "Premium economy seats make a huge difference in terms of comfort. The Vegan pre-selected meal was way better this leg of the trip than the LAX to FRA trip. Entertainment was good too."

Cons: "Their computer terminals were down on the boarding area. Actually about 5 Boarding areas were down no one was available to give direction or answer questions until you got To the front of the line and many had to be sent then to a different line. Bad enough the terminals were down but not even close to German efficiency in handling the problem. Also several of the stewards were rather surly and short"

Pros: "Nice aircraft, great entertainment, good crew"
Cons: "Maybe a selection of snacks during the flight? Just pretzels seems inadequate for an 11 hour flight."

Pros: "It is so nice to flight on board a plane were the staff knows what to do."

Pros: "I managed to get a seat in economy class upstairs on the Airbus A380-800, next to the window. Each window seat has a locker to stow all your in-flight stuff in and there is lots of legroom. I was impressed - that's saying a lot for a Boeing-lover. Crew was very attentive and always available."
Cons: "Boarding could have been better organized."

Pros: "Very professional crew.efficiently run. I spent extra for additional legroom in economy class and would have been comfortable but it I was seated next to a very large person which created a seating space reduced by a third. I was miserable the entire time by the man leaning into me. Not exactly the airlines fault."

Pros: "On time-well organized!"

Pros: "Amazing"
Cons: "I had picked my own isle seat at purchase of ticket. Some how i ended up sitting middle row."

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Being sick on the way back home from my Vacation!"

Cons: "The vegetarian option was not as up to the standard of the meal travelling from Los Angeles to Frankfurt. It could be much improved in Business Class."

Pros: "The downstairs lavatories are genius!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Food overly salty. My "tv" worked poorly, skipped around and couldn't get to previous spot."

Cons: "1 hour between flights meant a very hectic transfer."

Pros: "The flight Crew was very attentive and went the extra mile to keep us happy during our flight, the head stewardess I give her a 10+. we will fly with Lufthansa again. great movies!"
Cons: "The flight from Roma to Frankfurt was late and we had to run what seemed like two miles to be able to catch our connecting flight to Los Angeles."

Pros: "On time. Smooth flight. Crew was extremely nice and helpful. Food was better than expected for airplane food."
Cons: "My particular seat had an entertainment system that only had about half the movies of the other seats. I notified the attendant who told me that this is a known issue that affects a number of seats on the plane."

Cons: "At time confusion amongst the crew- received wilted salad- seemed the last rows had to take what was left over"

Cons: "I asked for my shopping from my magazine several times. Food is beyond bad.....it is absolutely horrible."

Pros: "This is how to run an airline. Ausgezeichnet!"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "aircraft was clean and the crew was organized and very professional"

Pros: "On board entertainment and it's equipment"
Cons: "Food was lousy. Worst I've experienced . Below par to airlines such as Singapore, Cathay or Japan airlines. Lufthansa food and crew is similar to air china now . Before this travel I used to enjoy flying with Lufthansa."

Pros: "The food, the crew, the cleanness and the entertainment"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Clean large toilets. enough of them so you need not wait. toilet area large so you can walk around. Crew friendly and always anticipating our needs. I liked the hot towels handed out twice during flight. Also the 2 delicious hot meals and snack. The captain didn't turn on seat belt sign at all; others turn it on after 3 or 4 seconds of slight turbulence and leave it on for the next 30 minutes even when it is smooth after that."
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Lufthansa makes you feel like you're flying first class...even when you're flying in an economy cabin seat!"

Pros: "I was really surprise that the coach seats were comfortable and had plenty of space. Flight was on time and it was easy to check in luggage. I truly enjoyed my 12 hour flight. I will be booking my international flight with Lufthansa again."
Cons: "The on plane entertainment wasn't up to par. Not a lot of selection for sitcoms, if they had a sitcom it was only 1 episode. 12 hour flight I didn't have much to watch after the first 6 hours. Food was ok."

Pros: "short hop--good"

Pros: "Great"

Cons: "More current movie selection would be nice."

Pros: "All meals provided were pretty bad. The premium economy seats are worth the extra money."

Pros: "Well taken care of"
Cons: "Seats are very close together in Economy"

Pros: "Everything worked like an expensive Swiss watch! Employees were polite, friendly, and very helpful! I will fly with Lufthansa again and again!!!"

Pros: "Being seated in econmony plus. Everything behind the scenes that i didn't see that made this flight safe. Very thankful. Didn't matter that not enough coffee was onboard for breakfast."
Cons: "The selection and range of music could be improved, or may be it is just my taste within the genres on offer."

Pros: "The crew was incredibly pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work for many passengers, and had to be continually reset, and sometimes still did not work. When it did aorkX it was extremely slow and unresponsive. Also, the USB and electrical outlets near the seats did not work and power devices"

Pros: "Wrote my thoughts in the wrong section. See Milan to Frankfurt"

Cons: "I started to get hungry between meals."

Pros: "The crew did their best to help several people whose seat requests were not honored including a woman traveling with a dog who was given an aisle instead of a window seat. Crew came around with water and juice frequently."
Cons: "Seat assignments were not honored. My husband and I were seated in two different rows even though we requested to sit together in an aisle and window seat and checked in the day before the flight This happened on all four legs of a trip to South Africa. Extremely narrow seats and little leg room. Felt like a cattle car. An aggressive woman with disruptive, screaming children was allowed to Torture passengers for a good five hours of the flight before the bursar finally moved her. This was after several hours of complaints from other passengers. She was eventually moved twice due to passenger complaints. The situation should have been handled after the first complaints which occurred two hours into the flight before the situation completely detiorated Food was terrible and meals ran out."

Cons: "Cramped seating in Economy"

Pros: "Crew was very attentive and took good care of everybody in general."
Cons: "On the way back from Munich the gluten free bread served was not edible! I would recommend to change it to something more appetizing. It's been used for way too many years! On the LA bound plane the GF bun was wonderful! Thank you though for caring to serve GF food! Not the most comfortable seats for your back in the economy class."

Pros: "On-time flights."
Cons: "Seems like Germans have perfected isolation of all passengers heading to the USA at the airport terminal. After passing 3 passport/boarding pass check points I attempted to buy some coffee in the shop near the gates. Again they demanded passport and boarding pass. I refused. I cannot resist a comment: "Welcome to modern-day Dachau experience!""

Cons: "I was nauseous during the plane ride walked to back of plane and was told I wasn't allowed to be back there. When that is where the bathrooms were. I asked for an extra pillow when there were 10 free seats the crew never honored my request. Not once did they ask if I was ok. The food was inedible. And I was completely uncomfortable the entire flight."

Cons: "The window seats are not comfortable like in other planes. The windows are too high, you don't see anything. The seat is too far from the window so you cannot lean towards it. For a 10 hour flight it was not comfortable."

Pros: "everything else was fine"
Cons: "the bathroom smell. they should have at least a good smelling soap, like lemonsoap.... the pasta was too overcooked."

Cons: "Free wifi"

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Wifi on klm"

Pros: "The crew was professional & friendly"
Cons: "Food was terrible honestly, entertainment system didn't work on 1st flight."

Pros: "Staff were professional and polite."
Cons: "Despite zone boarding, boarding and disembarkation were very slow. Passengers like me with flight connections were very anxious regarding missing these."

Cons: "Seats in economy section are very close together . There is not enough room for knees...especially for such a long trip."

Pros: "economy plus seats were nice, great movie selection, especially international movies"
Cons: "crew was not friendly, i had to ask for water many times, usually water person walk the aisle. food was terrible. other carriers food were better"

Cons: "Too hot inside the aircraft"

Pros: "the drinks"
Cons: "seat reservation. having to pay for luggage...."

Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."

Cons: "This return flight was much better than the flight going to Amsterdam. I believe the biggest factor was the type of aircraft. The old 747 just didn't meet expectations. The newer 777 on the way back was much more comfortable, with better amenities."

Pros: "Food, entertainment and crew was exceptionally friendly."
Cons: "Seats not great for such a long flight."

Pros: "Seat space a bit tight . I should have upgraded to more leg room . Next time!"

Pros: "Food provided, staff kind"
Cons: "Was several hours delayed and check in took 45 minutes because they somehow lost my reservation."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Security check at gate; No priority"

Cons: "I ordered Wheel chair for my parents but one of them didn't get it at all. When my parents were checking in for flight they asked the representative about meal selection and she didn't answer their questions properly and because of that my mom didn't get proper Hindu Vegetarian food on flight instead she got Egg omelet which she couldn't eat. She has to eat just fruits. My mother is a diabetic patient and she needs a food every after some time. I never had such a bad experience before with any other airlines."

Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"

Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Everything was clean and well organized."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours."

Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."
Cons: "No outlets to charge digital devices, and need more bathrooms on board. I was able to sleep most of the 11 hour flight so I did not take advantage of the entertainment."

Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "It would be helpful for short people to be able to adjust the head rest lower on the seat. More recent released movies would be helpful. More leg room. Not charging more money to choose seats."

Cons: "Didn’t happen."

Cons: "infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed"

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Nice to have a wrap for the snack."
Cons: "Would have preferred boarding by row - back of the flight first so would have been more organized."

Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."

Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"

Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."

Cons: "Boarding was delayed a little due to weather as was takeoff. Cant blame them for weather but the connection was very tight."

Pros: "Consistently high standards"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."

Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."

Pros: "787 is a great airplane. The 3-3-3 seat configuration leaves enough seat width to be just comfortable in coach."

Pros: "Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful"

Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."

Cons: "No proper info regarding cancellation. Staff was unfriendly and abruptly responded to passengers."

Pros: "Easy Boarding"

Cons: "old plane, tight and uncomfortable"

Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."

Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"

Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."

Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."

Pros: "Atmosphere, crew were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "Seats were a little too narrow, and quite uncomfortable when a broad shouldered person is sitting next to you"

Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."

Pros: "They flew full speed to catch up with the delays."
Cons: "Departure was scheduled with one hour delay. When everyone was boarded they mentioned a leaking toilet. It took them 1,5 hours to disable the toilet. In the mean time, no drinks, no snacks, nothing. So we should depart at 18:00 but it became 19:30. Our first drinks and meal was no earlier then 21:00. The crew should have anticipated better that the technical problem would at least take one hour and give everyone a drink at least."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
