I proceeded to tell him I never got the main course, he apologized and told me that there was only an egg entree left. I went ahead and took it, then as a way to apologize he offered to get me a piece of fruit, a banana. I accepted but he never came back with it. It was not a big deal but I did not appreciate being offered something and then no follow up. Next time do not offer something and then not follow through."

I purchased a multi-trip and failed to used the ticket I purchased because I had to leave Qatar early since the person I was staying with was disorganized and flew out the country. I then purchased a different ticket with another airline because it was cheaper. Since I did that, they cancelled my whole trip. HOW? And I payed for a service I clearly didn't receive. As a result, stranded, I had to pay an additional $1,125 for a one way ticket home - more than my original round trip multi flight purchase."

Pros: "Overall flight was pretty good"

Pros: "The food was great and so was the staff. The plane was clean and spacious."
Pros: "Crew polite and efficient."
Cons: "Boarding process non-existent. Huge queue of 80+ people. Seats average comfort. Food bland. No entertainment other than on the overhead displays. Will avoid flying with this type of plane / flight."

Cons: "The entertainment choice not as vast as Emirates that I always experienced"
Pros: "The crew and food were excellent! Great pilot also."
Cons: "Seats were too small and not very cushion for your bottom. Also 3 out of my 4 flights with Qatar were delayed 20-45 minutes after everyone was boarded. Person in front of me 2 of 4 flights had their seat reclined which gave me no room what so ever. It made eating and watching tv uncomfortable."
Pros: "about average"
Pros: "The service was great"
Pros: "The service, the crew"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, if you like who is next to you"
Cons: "Food was the same going to Dubai and coming back, so if traveler didn't like it then too bad, will be starving both ways."
Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "It was stated that they allow bagpack and carryon luggage but they allowed only one"
Pros: "The flight was SO OLD and uncomfortable which is absolutely ridiculous for a 16 hour flight. My screen did not work the entire time despite asking flight attendants to fix the issue. The flight attendant would not attend to me despite me pressing the button and twice skipped me while giving out meals. I had to call them back and ask for it. The bathrooms were SO dirty and yet no flight attendant took out the trash or cleaned it even though we are in the midst of a pandemic. We were also not given hygiene kits to keep ourselves safe. DO NOT FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE."
Cons: "Love it! Next time, I will for sure buy tickets from Kayak"
Pros: "I don’t like it"
Cons: "They take my money because my flight it’s was over And they charge me twice"
Cons: "Offer cappuccino along with coffee, tea, and juice."
Pros: "The crew was really nice."
Cons: "The delay was very poorly handled. We had to go through security multiple times because delays would happen just before boarding and they’d change gates. Plus, meal vouchers were useless for us as Dubai airport is quite unfriendly to vegetarians. Never flying Emirates again."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and efficiently carried out, considering there were hundreds of passengers"
Cons: "The fact that we were delayed for a variety of reasons and sat in the plane for 2 hours before taking off. That was difficult for everyone."
Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."
Pros: "For the most part it really was a most excellent flight, especially the Dubai to SF leg where there were SO MANY CHILDREN around [should get a free upgrade just for surviving that] but the flight crew did exceptionally well and remained calm all the way through. Apart from one grumpyish woman on the second flight the majority of crew were exceptional and really went out of their way to serve and help."
Cons: "I slashed my finger fairly painfully on a toilet door while pushing it from the outside to open it on the Dubai to Cape Town flight [again, an upgrade on my home flight which is a bucket list dream would more than make up for that!] which i pointed out to a flight attendant and they took note of it and bandaged me up so it was dealt with well but hopefully that gets sorted out [she said she would write a report] cos it did unfortunately affect the rest of my flight a little... And so many crying babies [thankful for volume control on headphones] but literally that was it - love flying Emirates cos on the whole felt super well treated..."
Cons: "Third time on emirates but this time it was the worst. Even worse service, seats, and food. While my kids ordered the regular meal I had ordered the Low Sodium Meal because of my health. The meal that I got was saltier than the regular meal!"

Pros: "After my request for vegan was apparently not put through, the crew bent over backward to find food for me. Unfortunately I only got fruit which is not very satisfying. . In addition, a kid was seated behind me and repeatedly (and I do mean repeatedly) kicked me in the back and slammed the tray table into my back. The crew found me another seat and were extremely nice about it."
Cons: "My request for vegan food was lost - it is hard to feel comfortable for that long of a time period just eating fruit. (This is even after the crew from the previous flight tried to remedy the situation by notifying them.)"

Cons: "India to dubai had poor Intertainment system"

Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and the meals were more than one would expect (still airplane food though). In flight entertainment was pretty robust and the inflight care packages (sleep mask, toothbrush/paste) were a nice touch. Although my wife and I were jealous of the business class luxury we were very satisfied with our 15 hour flight."
Cons: "no complaints!"
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "Food, service and the crews behavior to be honest I'm very satisfied from that flight so I recommend all my friends to try once on Emirates. I really appreciate for the services."
Cons: "There is nothing to mention that I didn't like it everything was on time."
Cons: "Old aircraft from Dubai to Houston. No power outlets. When I switched the light on for service. No body responded even after an hour. I turned it off. Food quality and service have gone down significantly."
Cons: "The same comment as above."
Cons: "Staff was amazing"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal options were scarce."
Pros: "we were updated with info every moment there was a change."
Pros: "good entertainment selection, nice staff, decent food and bathrooms"
Pros: "Newness of the plane - clean, safe and thus comforting and enjoyable as can be for such a longgg flight (India to USA). Price of the flight compared to other airlines was exceptional. Excellent onboard entertainment - long list of movies and shows and music that can be enjoyed, paused and restarted at any time. Lots of food and snacks. Free "adult drinks". Free gifts for the kids (cheap toys, but still a nice touch) Some of the crew were very friendly and complimentary and socially engaging."
Cons: "Certain crew members were a little less than friendly - not ready to serve and please but rather just ready to get their job done as fast as possible without being pleasant. But...what airline doesnt have this problem? What company doesnt have this problem? Much of the food was mediocre. Only a small portion actually tasted good. A little disconcerting at the end. Crew members were literally running up and down the aisles over and over trying to collect trash, store trash and take care of other chores WELL AFTER the pilot told them to be seated. It made it seem as if the crew were not professional, not well-trained, not well-disciplined and thus made me a bit uncomfortable to see them scrambling around for 10 minutes as if they were behind schedule on everything. If they rushed this, then what else more important does the airline rush? Hopefully nothing but it was quite an odd experience. Overall the flight was well worth it though. I will fly Emirates again as long as their prices remain very competitive."
Cons: "Swiss air returned my bagage damaged and there is no way to report it!"

Pros: "Swiss is always excellent"
Pros: "Cabin crew were efficient"
Cons: "Open check in counters on time as scheduled. They were half hour late at least"
Pros: "This was a very short flight. They gave you a great little snack and drink. Was a very smooth flight and the crew were very friendly and welcoming."
Cons: "Could not check in online because the system was down."
Cons: "The crew responsible for boarding did not provide timely information (especially on who boarding order) and "made up" for this lack of communication by yelling and screaming at passengers as if they were cattle."
Pros: "On time; smooth boarding process; lights dimmed for a reasonably long time."
Cons: "NO legroom on the Zurich to Dusseldorf flight."
Cons: "My flight was delayed more than 1 hour at least after overlay of 4 hours. I missed my flight from Vienna to Yerevan and the portion of my trip was detoured to Moscow and from there to Yerevan instead of 3 hours took me 8 hours. As a result of rushing and running in Vienna to catch my flight to Yerevan I feel and injured my hip, I would like a compensation , Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 703-609-8649"

Cons: "Only glass of water free...coffee is 3.50"
Pros: "The crew was superlative, and after I was stuck for an hour at passport control I found the captain waiting with my dog(in his crate) to make sure of his well being. He said he made sure he kept the climate control at 20c the whole time on the plane. You hear all these animal horror stories but this went above and beyond."
Pros: "Quick trip :-)"
Cons: "45 minute delay, but those are pretty understandable and unavoidable."
Pros: "Throughout the long flight, the cabin crew was excellent. They were attentive and friendly. They avoided interrupting quiet time and rest time by keeping off the PA system (well done). The food was fantastic. We were lucky enough to get some business class tickets with points, and the food was amazing. Wine was excellent. This team was quite solicitous of my parent with reduced-mobility. And the bathrooms stayed clean throughout the flight. find this is often an areas where many airlines fall down. And it's too bad, because while I'm 100% sure it is no fun to clean a toilet while in flight, it is a really a big negative for the customers. Overall excellent attention to detail, with a cheerful and "can-do" crew that kept the plane "proper" throughout the flight and provided seamless service. Good stuff. Will fly again."
Pros: "Dry. I’ve food and really felt pampered"

Cons: "The extra charge for a bag!!!!!!!!!!! Would rather fly Southwest or Jet Blue or others that allow a mid size carry on"
Cons: "I bought economy class ticket! (I have a printout ticket as proof!) When I went to the airport i had a VERY UNPLEASANT surprise. I had a 23kg bag. Bording stuart said that my ticket is ECO LIGHT class and I don't have the right to any baggage. Worst thing of all was that the reason of my trip to Paris was my sister's graduation and half of the baggage was my formal wear and other half were presents for my sister! Your lack of transparency ruined one in lifetime special event- MY SISTER'S GRADUATION. I am very glad that you asked me for my opinion because I am using my free time to demand full refund, even tough the damage is much bigger than the cost of the ticket and it's irreplaceable."
Pros: "It was okay. No complaints. I appreciated that I was given a seat near the front to run and make my next flight."
Cons: "my ticket was changed and messed up and could be due to language and understanding, I ran a lot to get to my flight and had to go back and forth between the check in line and ground force and wait out of line until a resolution was found."
Pros: "Professional crew"
Pros: "The woman who checked in my baggage was very helpful and patient. I had to re-arrange some weight and she assisted me in maximizing weight and minimizing cost. The flight attendants we very kind in trying to assist me in finding appropriate food. The flight was very comfortable and the flight attendants were wonderful all-around."
Cons: "Boarding of the flight was delayed which impacted our arrival time in Zurich. I had a connecting flight- but so did at least 10 other Swiss flights at that time. The queues for customs were incredibly long and the only reason I made my flight was because I ran through the airport. I also had a challenging time with food. I am celiac and often cannot eat the standard fare on planes. I called in advance of my flight to notify someone of my allergy - and they told me the only way I could ensure such a meal was by purchasing a meal that cost $30. I was not willing to pay such a hefty surcharge for food because I had already payed a bit extra than budgeted because my partner had recommended the excellent service of Swiss. I have traveled on several airlines for intercontinental flights between Boston and Europe - and have always had my allergy accommodated at no extra cost. Once on the flight - I was offered an orange and banana for dinner and a small yoghurt for breakfast. I will be flying Swiss again in December and I sincerely hope they will be better equipped to provide for my dietary requirements."
Cons: "Landed in NY @ JFK with a missing luggage. That happens, I know and it can be ok but the sad thing is the very poor the service offered to take care of it. I have tried to call, no answer, I tried the link they gave me to track progress: NOTHING.... Called customer service, they gave me that number and that link telling me it was the only way!!! I am so frustrated right now!!!"
Pros: "The way of treatment"
Cons: "The landing was terrible"
Cons: "The line at the check in was quite long. Luckily I had only carryon"
Cons: "1h45 departure delayed with no compensation."
Pros: "The flight attendants are great and their aircraft are very clean and comfortable. I especially appreciated the request for passengers to raise their seat backs during meal times."
Pros: "Very pleasant flight, excellent take off, didn't feel a thing. The crew was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Service was very good."
Cons: "Three and a half hours delay due to technical difficulties. Food was only a small cheese sandwich and a bottle of water. Could have given us a little more food. Seat on flight did not recline. Extreme turbulence for half an hour, very scary, thought we would never make it! All in all, a bad experience."
Pros: "Nothing because the airplane seats were terribly uncomfortable!"
Cons: "No announcement regarding delay. No boarding announcement. Very uncomfortable, older business seats. Actually had a sore back after the flight. Couldn't get comfortable. Travelling companion had the same experience. Small screen."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Cooler temperatures in the cabin Vegetarian meal options More individual water bottles for passengers Flight attendants answering call light promptly"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Very hot"
Pros: "Great choice of recently released movies."
Pros: "On the plus side, the food, service, entertainment, and comfort on Turkish are the best of any Economy class overseas flights. For that reason, they are my top pick."
Cons: "I can't understand why I was booked with an impossibly tight connection. It's a huge airport, with multiple security checkpoints with long lines. I had an hour between flights, and the first flight landed just five minutes late. The gate for the second flight had already closed by the time I cleared the first security checkpoint. It would have been completely impossible to make it to the gate on time. Turkish put me up in a hotel, etc., for the night, and there were dozens of people in similar situations. But the airline shouldn't offer connections that are totally impossible."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "I had a very good experience with Turkish Airllines! crew was very friendly and excellent."
Cons: "I contacted Turkish Airlines 4x times before my flight to learn how to deal with excess medical baggage, mobility assistance, and meal assistance. The Customer Call Center claimed to have made all of my necessary reservation updates for all of my special meal, medical, and mobility assistance needs. They did not! When I arrived at Check-In, there were no notes about any of my requests, nor services prepared to facilitate them. I spent over 30-45 minutes escalating the situation to the Shift Manager who had to contact the central call center and her own manager, just to find out what to do about medical baggage, what's permitted, etc. I was embarrassed for their employees, who not only didn't know their own company policy on the matter, nor were they aware of the industry standard. After much arguing, yelling and threats, the Check-In desk agents finally allowed my excess medical baggage and equipment without extra charge. I still received no mobility assistance to begin my travel after Check-In to my departure gate, nor were they prepared to offer this to me in Istanbul. Again, after a long wait, much yelling, screaming, and arguing, I was finally provided mobility assistance just in time for my flight. I almost missed my flight due to Turkish Airlines not putting my request in the system, nor caring enough about the traveler to do so at Check-In. When I arrived in Belgrade, 3x pieces of my luggage were destroyed and unusable again, medical equipment was damaged, and I filed a claim with Turkish Airlines. They tried every way possible not to pay, but finally offered a meager claim, nothing close to what it cost for the damage caused or to repair or replacement the destroyed luggage or medical equipment. Turkish Airlines is the Grey Hound of travel, sure they might be large, offer many itineraries and frequent travel, but their quality, customer service and professionalism leave them amongst the bottom feeders, still 3rd world in mentality, form and function. No honor, no integrity, no class. No reason to ever fly with Turkish again, and I'm happy to tell everyone I know not to fly with them!"
Pros: "Generally better than other European airlines particularly BA and better priced"
Cons: "Work to do on consistency with crew"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and the entertainment was good."

Pros: "I liked how smooth our flight was thanks to the flight crew. The entertainment was great and helped pass the time. The flight crew was great and attentive."
Cons: "The food was ok but I wish I knew a way to have vegetarian options. I would have liked some kind of fruit options as well."
Pros: "I got a return ticket from Houston to Lagos, the first leg of my trip went pretty well, no hassle at all, the staff and crew were great and professional."
Cons: "But the second leg of my trip which was Lagos back to Houston was horrible, the Turkish Airlines employees at the Murtala Mohammed International airport Lagos were the worst ever, unprofessional, rude and lack basic knowledge of boarding. Decided to do their own thing rather than what the airline allows. It's almost like they lacked training or just don't want to learn. No accountability whatsoever as one of the employee said "it's not like it's gonna affect my job anyways". Poor poor terrible customer service, no courtesy, no etiquette. I can go on and on but ain't nobody got time for their negativity."
Cons: "Tried to cancel due to flooding in home and they would not refund my ticket. Neither would airfare.com, whom I purchased the ticket through."
Pros: "Service, hospitality, free internet movies food unlimited sandwich and cake, usb charging, clean restroom"
Cons: "Wi fi"
Pros: "I love everything, the crew was amazing ,very helpful and always with a big smile on the face.

Cons: "Except that in the same day I had two flights with Turkish Airlines and both of them had a delay."
Pros: "The security measures"
Cons: "They made us choose an alternate schedule and offered our money back completely 1 week before our trip. This change by Turkish Airlines cost me $610. I had to rearrange the flight schedule for the person dog and house sitting for me. We had to spend an extra vacation day from work. The hotel Turkish Airlines put us in had terrible food and was so isolated that you could not walk to a restaurant. This airline was the lowest price, but I will definitely be looking for a different way for my next trip."
Pros: "Nothing important"
Cons: "Nothing extra ordinary"
Pros: "good movie selections"
Cons: "We were pushed to stand-by at the check-in and were told that seat number would be available at the gate. However, this never happened. At the gate, we (30+ people) were told that there are no more seats available on the plane and we have to go to their customer service for another flight. There are no Turkish Airline staff at the gate to explain why this would happen and provide any assistance. We spend the next 2 hours trying to get boarding pass for the next day's flight and the hotel. Again, no apologies nor explanation were given. Thank you Turkish Airline for wasting 1 day of my life. I will try to avoid this airline in the future."
Cons: "Their audio system is very bad."
Cons: "Turkish airlines worth airlines ever. They change our flight from Houston to LA without giving us any choice because they are over booked with 30 passengers and on top gave us longer flight instead of sending us closer to our destination. They lost our bags and discover in LA that most of Turkish airlines passengers lost one of their bags too. we miss our flight from LA to Houston because of bad organizations and We had to sleep in LA one night so to take second day fight to Houston. So bad so frustrating never use Turkish airlines again."

Cons: "Boarding a bit of a zoo. Long lines at passport control."
Cons: "The flight was late by over 2 hours and we missed our onward flight to San Francisco. At Istanbul, Ataturk Airport, Turkish Airline did not provide a Visa although they gave hotel and boarding passes for next days flight. At Istanbul, Ataturk airport it was a nightmare for us, as senior citizens. Why should we buy the Visa when the flight was delayed which is no fault of ours. Of the 4 automatic e-visa machines onlyEv 1 was working and there was a long queue. In between the machine stopped working for a long time and no one was there to assist or restart. They gave our boarding passes for the next days flight and their responsibility was over. We had to wait for over an hour to get the hotel. Overall it was a bad experience."

Cons: "Istanbul airport takes some getting used to."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Love the "welcome aboard" Turkish delight. Enjoyed the pide sandwich snack."
Cons: "Offer water or any drinks instead of us having go to the kitchen area. Would be better to offer drinks in bottles instead of a glass. Also, bring snack offerings throughout cabin. I was traveling with 3 children. Could you think about offering food to the passengers with children first? This would help in getting them settled into the plane instead of waiting for their food -- which for them seems like an eternity."

Pros: "Entertainment was good and varied"

Pros: "The food was delicious."
Cons: "I missed my Lufthansa flight due to being parked away from the Frankfurt airport which caused us to be late, which caused me to be late to my already closely booked connecting flight. That was extremely inconvenient. Lufthansa was amazing at getting me a same day rebooking, but the UA plane I was booked on was a little older. I was already a bit sick with a head cold and the heating element was very dry heat.. it made everyone pretty miserable on the flight. I was a bit disappointed to have to be rescheduled off of Lufthansa."

Cons: "Houston isn't their hub and I have to put up with United."

Pros: "Boarding staff was cooperative On time departures and arrivals"
Cons: "Crew in Lufthansa are racist. Don't want to elaborate here but trust me for this. Bad quality food. They don't even have sufficient food for everyone. I didn't get two meals on one flight. Loo's are not maintained. Crew too rude. Had called a flight attendant for service but didn't show up until an hour (exactly an hour). Later I had to get up and take it. Can write an essay on my whole journey."
Pros: "Price was right. Aircraft was clean & maintained to high level. On time departure and arrival."
Pros: "nice personality"
Pros: "Flight attendants pretty good. Got lucky with one of the only 2-seater rows in the back of the plane. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "I'm only 5'2" (157cm) and slim but could barely move in my seat, and if the person in front leaned seat back, it was terrible. Food was lame, really salty and they did not come around with water enough."

Pros: "It was all together a pleasant trip."
Pros: "The on-board crew could not have been better......their professionalism, service, attentiveness was the best that I have experience in Economy class travel. The plane was clean, the toilets were nice throughout the flight. The seats were comfortable and noticeably wider than some other carriers offer. The food was MUCH better on Lufthansa flights that originate in Europe than flights that originate in the US. I will definitely fly again."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos, I have never, even in India, experienced less organization of a boarding process. Actually, there were no lines, just a crowd of passengers pushing and shoving towards two gates. This was made worse by the occasional golf cart trying to move thru this throng of passengers. Most dangerous was that the flow of passengers down the escalators was not regulated, when I reached the bottom of the escalator there was no place to go, I was pushed awkwardly to the side by passengers piling up behind me. I am 67 years old, and found this very unsafe to my self and others. I hope that no injuries occurred."
Cons: "This was actually operated by United and as usual united service food and quality was way below the norm. Very disappointing."
Cons: "The controls on movie screen did not respond to touch very well."
Pros: "Smooth Ride Stewardesses"
Cons: "Seats, The website would not let me upgrade to premium seats. I am also a Gold Star Alliance member and thought that I should have been able to have the Premium seating available, especially since there were vacant seating. But it was a great flight. The best airline flight I have had so far."
Pros: "the ease of booking the trip"
Cons: "The fact that my mother suffered a major medical episode which lead to her being hospitalized for six days in Germany has left me very bitter regarding our flight. I have flown Lufthansa before in the past and AWAYS had a wonderful experience. However, I have NOTHING good to say regarding Lufthansa/KAYAK/Vaymara regarding your missed flight/re-booking policy, nor working with anyone who speaks anything other than broken English at best. If it had been possible my mother and I would have completed the flight from Frankfurt to Houston on 5/15/16; however, my mother's medical condition precluded that from happening. I submitted hospital admission paperwork which I was told that the airline was requesting that I needed to get the forms in English. REALLY???? We were in Germany; the hospital admission and discharge paperwork are in German. Lufthansa is a German - based airline. Nobody speaks or can read German? The hospital did not offer an option of English paperwork and I could pay for translating the paperwork for a price and it would take a couple of weeks.. I had to re-book through another carrier after receiving clearance and a certificate that my mother was medically cleared to fly. The price was ridiculously high but I had no other option since your representative told me it would take 4-6 weeks to reach a decision. Thank you so VERY much for inquiring in to my satisfaction on flight from Frankfurt to Houston Intercontinental on Lufthansa. As you can tell....it was quite the experience."
Pros: "Frequent food and beverage service, plus 2 hot towel offerings."
Cons: "My headphones stopped working 1 hour into the flight, so I just watched movies with subtitles. No air vents, so it was really warm. I'm only 5'2" and felt really cramped in the seats."

Pros: "Crew were very helpful and kind . Really makes a difference"
Cons: "No new release movies , tv shows were also not good choices."
