Cons: "Delayed and baggage claim took over 45mins."
Cons: "Didn't happen. My first leg to Athens was canceled which created a humongous headache since it ended up canceling my return flights.

Cons: "Not much!!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Pros: "The food and amenities were alright."
Cons: "It left late, the plane lost my friend's luggage for a day."
Pros: "Having every single person I spoke with pass me on to another party. Apparently customer complaints is really no one's job. They're extremely motivated to have you find someone else to correct your problem. Rest assured it is "your problem" I was told quite explicitly that my missed connection flight and lost luggage was not their problem."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. Couldn't even tell me when my bag was checked despite the scan tag they attached to my boarding pass when they weighed it and checked it in back in New York. They legitimately had no idea if my bag ever left the United States. It took 3 days to locate my baggage while I was trying to celebrate my anniversary with my wife in Athens. being without your luggage for half a week in a foreign country is not even remotely fun. I had to wait around missing tours and reservations trying to find our luggage most of our first 48 hours in Greece. After giving up on getting our stuff we had to waste a chunk of time shopping to replace our clothing and toiletries. Despite having purchased the travel insurance I'm still fighting a month after our trip ended to be reimbursed for the clothes we had to buy just to begin our vacation. Again they continue to stonewall by transferring our complaint calls endlessly and forwarding our emails with "new" case numbers each time. Basically what this accomplishes is they can't ever find the case number they updated it to and insist that the prior case number is listed as resolved. Since they say it's resolved there is nothing anyone can do to help. Not sure if I'll ever get any satisfaction out of this debacle."
Pros: "We were fed and offered drinks, given blankets, pillows and complimentary travel kits, issues with flight changes and other questions were answered quickly, ticketing was a breeze, the flight crew was extremely courteous, and flying back with my electronics was covered with professional care of my equipment and certainty that I wouldn't miss my flight."
Pros: "At least one crew member made an effort to help."
Cons: "We ordered regular vegetarian food without any meat, fish or poultry. We had reserved it at least 2 weeks in advance. Again reminded them at the time of ticketing. Agent went to some one, there was some nodding of heads and we were told to tell crew member in advance. We did it in a written request to head crew. When time came other crew member served us completely ignorant of our request. We were served flash of some animal. We did not want to make a scene but people around were were also bothered. We came out hungry at the other end"
Pros: "If one puts seats in relaxed position, other travelers complain so why have the option of putting seat in relaxed position"
Pros: "Friendly crew. They even offered complimentary hot food on our 1 hour flight"
Pros: "All good"

Pros: "Great flight, crew and experience."
Cons: "Breakfast selection was a bit subpar"
Pros: "Great food; plenty of room to stretch out (we flew business class)."
Cons: "The service on the flight from Houston to Turkey was much better than it was from Turkey to Houston. For one thing, the flight attendant never made up our beds on the way back to Houston. For another, the sound did not work at my seat, so I was unable to use any of the entertainment. The flight attendant kept trying to give me different headphones...it wasn't the headphones that were the problem!! He never really addressed the issue or coordinated a possible seat change (even though there were empty seats in business class)."
Pros: "Quality experience all the way around. Thank you for city tour of Istanbul during layover. Outstanding touch!"
Cons: "Food was average"
Cons: "Less variety of food and entertainment options compared with other airlines I traced to USaa but service was exceptional."

Pros: "We liked the cost of airfare and flight times convenient. We also like the onboard TV and wifi."

Pros: "All was great as mentioned earlier."
Cons: "They lost one of my bags but I got it in the afternoon the next day."
Pros: "AS AN AIRLINE IWILL NEVER FLY AGAIN BECAUSE INSTEAD OF 5.5 HRS FROM STW TO ATH MY TRIP LASTED 14.5 HRS.THE CREW ON BOTH AIR PLANES EXCELLENT"
Pros: "Low prices & generally good service and entertainment"
Cons: "In contrast to my trip from SFO, this was a delight. They use Airbus A330s, which are huge and very comfortable. The food was pretty good and the service quite warm. The boarding was again late --it is becoming a theme with this airline and of course, we were late taking off and arriving,"
Pros: "Super friendly crew! Great amount of entertainment on board. Good food."
Cons: "The flight from DXB was delayed, causing us to miss the connection to LIS in IST. 2 hours after standing at the transfer desk they put us on a flight to LIS via CDG. Luggage was kept in IST. Now we are in LIS with no luggage and no confirmation on its whereabouts. Lost and found staff at LIS (Portway) showed total confusion in claiming luggage was in CDG. Today two planes arrived in LIS from IST, none of them with our luggage. Screen shows my name with mention "Not loaded" regarding the luggage. This incompetence is unacceptable from "Europe's best airline". This title is misleading advertising and should not be allowed."
Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "there was no entertainment no pillows no blanket inside of the plane was kind of cold and the flight attendants were quite indifferent to your needs I couldnt lower the number of stars but I give it 1 star all around!!"
Pros: "Movie selection was good"
Cons: "Staff was incredibly rude. There was no last call made for the bathrooms, I'm 6 1/2 months pregnant, before they announce our descent I get up to pee. I get yelled at. I sit down, 10 minutes later the guy comes up to me and asks me if I really need to go. I said of course. He opened the bathroom for me and as soon as I sit to pee a girl is knocking bloody murder telling me they're going to land the plane and I'm taking to long. I had been in there all of 30 seconds. I finished quickly and returned to my seat. We didn't land for another 30 minutes. Worst service EVER!"
Pros: "Great service, amazing food. A lesson to be learned by the American carriers'"
Pros: "It was a nice flight"
Pros: "The crew"

Cons: "There is no entertainment except for Business Class. Would be nice to watch a movie to pass the time."
Pros: "THEY LOST OUR LUGGAGE and had absolutely zero record of it!!!!! Never again will we take Aeroflot. Not worth saving the money, really not a very good experience.."
Cons: "Our flight attendant was not very helpful at all. Our flight was delayed 40 mins. When in Moscow went to help desk we were told we missed our connection and had to wait 8 hours until next flight. Turns out we didn't miss it, it was delayed 2 hours so we could have been on it, they screwed us."
Cons: "Flight was canceled or moved. They told us there is a problem with the flight and moved us to another airline. I’ve been warned about Aeroflot and it turned out to be true. I’ll file a complaint, I deserve a refund."
Cons: "Hostesses are worse and worse. Forget everything you say. You repeat 5 times. All announcements are made so loudly and 3 times (Russian, English, Spanish). Everyone must wake up. It roars so loadly you can’t hide even in headphones. Late for 30 minutes, which is norm for the company. Then you for the luggage for more than 30 minutes. Worst in Europe."
Pros: "They let me buy a beer at off hours from regular food and drink service. Movie choices were good."
Cons: "Really noisy, rattling sounds through most of the trip. Not very generous with drinks, of all types. Old and unfriendly entertainment system. They need newer jets."

Cons: "The staff is rude and the food is not fresh"
Cons: "booking this flight was a nightmare. after several calls i was told i can upgrade to a seat with more legroom in economy plus at the airport counter for 12 Euros. it then turned out it cost me $80 for just one leg of the trip, and it wasn't economy plus, but a very narrow seat in an exit row right next to a toilet. The phone customer service was rude, unprofessional, and uninformed."
Pros: "Very good food"
Cons: "Luggage was lost!"
Pros: "Speed of boarding and staff"
Cons: "Rude air hostesses. 3 hours on taxi which I’m willing to forgive because of the weather. They took an extra three hours to send our baggage through to baggage claim because their crew “refused to work in that weather”. Get a hold on your recruiting. And then my baggage doesn’t show up. All my woolens were in there and I have nothing to wear and it’s freezing outside. They do not give me ANY compensation of any sort. This is the worst experience I’ve ever had and all just save a couple hundred dollars. Not worth the hassle! I’m still trying to get in touch with them to ask about my baggage but they’re unreachable."
Cons: "Sandwich was unappealing"
Pros: "The plane was very modern and clean with a good balance of seating and leg room. The flight staff was friendly, professional and very helpful. Food was good and drinks plentiful."
Pros: "I slept from before takeoff until the landing. That what made the flight so great."
Cons: "Cabin was too cool. Slept wrapped in the blanket."
Pros: "Service was great and details were on point. Loved the toothbrush and tooth paste in the bathroom when everyone woke up from a 9 hour flight."
Cons: "There wasn't much to complain about."
Pros: "In-flight service was pleasant."
Cons: "The boarding at the Heathrow Airport was a bit chaotic, due to the incompetence of the so-called manager who had no ability in simple crowd management. Fortunately, some female flight attendant who did the boarding had some common sense and helped ease the situation. Sack that male manager who was so unpleasant and incompetent."
Cons: "my luggage did not arrive at my final destination and the next day I had to call multiple times before it was delivered at my mother's apartment in Volgograd."
Pros: ",very good servis"
Cons: "Long flight delay"
Pros: "Smooth landing. Professional pilots. Great crew. Good food"
Cons: "Bad seats. No room. No comfort."

Cons: "I prefer one meal but quality than 2 and not good quality"

Pros: "It was just a two hour flight and they gave a snack sandwich and real fruit. Friendly cabin crew and comfortable seating, all for $74"
Pros: "Cabin staff (Russian) tried very hard, had limited English, drinks available through our flight. In flight entertainment there were a lot of choices (13 1/2 hr flight). For LA to Spain it was the best price."
Cons: "Announcements from flight deck in English very hard to impossible to understand. Most passengers are Russian. There are some differences in culture and etiquette that exist and you can either deal with them or you can't. Their norm is to be willing to stand in long lines. Personal space may be less than what we are accustomed to in US. The airline staff usually have some English but are not interested in having a discussion with you, just a couple of words. Food: passable, no more. Lady sitting next to me opened up a paper then plastic wrap, placed 2 smoked fish on a stack of napkins then proceeded to dismantle it with her fingers and eat it. It was smelly and disgusting. I commented to a flight attending that I found this impolite to inflict on other passengers - nothing was done - she didn't say a word to the passenger. I don't want to rule others but when I pay money, I don't feel that I should have no say. I might do it again but the cost difference would really have to make it worthwhile."
Pros: "We had an excellent flight, partly because we were sitting next to friendly people. The food was good, and the stewards were helpful. All in all a great flight."
Pros: "Great flight, comfortable, much better then I thought it would be! Would fly with them again."

Cons: "The boarding process was a bit daunting. Once I was on the plane everything was fine and even exceeded expectations!!"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "After boarding, we sat in the plane for an hour while the engines were off. Not necessarily the crew's fault."
Cons: "Attidude of attendance. Broken facility. Not understandable announcement."
Pros: "I flew in the business class cabin direct non-stop Los Angeles -> Moscow Russia. It was a pretty normal business class experience, nothing too special, but nothing lacking. Mostly I slept for 9 hours in the fully lay flat business class seats and they left me alone."
Cons: "While serving dinner, the flight attendants acted REALLY stressed out, as if what they were doing was super ultra important that they get it right or they would be fired (or taken out back and shot). It was a strange vibe. I mean, we're all trapped in the air for an 11 hour flight, it isn't like I have an important meeting to attend in 5 minutes. :-) The flight attendants should smile, say hello, be professional but relaxed!!"
Cons: "We could not choose seats online before flying, and ended up with middle seats, The flights domestically in Russia had been comfortable, the transatlantic legs were cramped and not comfortable at all. Stewards stopped people from moving to empty seats."
Pros: "I cant say anything wrong the staff is always professional and hard working."
Cons: "I am big I needed a bigger seat."
Pros: "Loaded passengers quickly with so many issues at the airport"
Cons: "No thought to seating and how they change and scatter families in different places not too far from each other. Plus seats were confirmed."
Pros: "The ground staff from the help desk was helpful enough"
Cons: "I could have been rebooked a flight without having to pay for it. Who wants to lost his or her passport? It was very inconvenient and stressful for me, at least free rebooking would have ease my situation."
Cons: "Good food"
Pros: "Airplane very comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Everything worked well, the boarding, on time flight, flight was smooth and landed 15 mins before time."

Cons: "The travel was cancell for orbiz fail"
Cons: "They canceled the flight that I booked from muscat to Manama at 1245 and booked to me at 745 am flight, and they keep me waiting for six hours to catch my flight from Manama to Riyadh, They did not offer me a hotel to stay during the waiting period."

Pros: "New Dreamliner. Business Class very comfortable. Onboard chef very attentive."
Cons: "IFE very limited, so take a good book!"
Pros: "The flight was on time and everyone from the ground crew to cabin crew were making sure to secure an on time performance. Checking in and boarding was swift. The flight was short and sweet. De-boarding was quick and taken back to the terminal in a bus."
Cons: "The cabin crew looked sad. Not a single one of them had a smile on their face. There was no welcome when I got on the aircraft, I was not woken up for food and was not asked later if I wanted something to eat."
Pros: "New plane. Quiet flight. Good service."
Cons: "Boarding was too long and a bit chaotic"
Pros: "The price was excellent, the (A330) plane was in good clean condition, they provided with blankets, pillows and headphones. The food was better than most airlines I have travelled on and the entertainment was okay but not as good I would have wanted. Overall, I would say 4 stars all round."
Cons: "Entertainment could have had more on offer, the plane was generally cold, an on-board wifi on their major (A330) planes would have been helpful and upgrades to their short haul planes would be good too."
Pros: "Nothing much I liked other than it was a regular (A321) plane service: nothing stood out for me. Nevertheless, still would travel with them because of the competitive price."
Cons: "The (A321) plane could done with an overhaul, but understandable as to why it is the way it is; for the purpose short hauls. Besides, the flight was only for an hour. Other than that, nothing much more to say."
Cons: "The flight was held back for late arrival of some passengers which resulted in delay in departure"
Cons: "Food was not so great. Could have been better"
Pros: "Almost no wait time to get checked in"
Cons: "Poor in flight entertainment. Missed connecting flight due to delay which is apparently something that happens rather frequently."

Pros: "The crew was helpful, the boarding was organized"
Cons: "I travelled with my 3 years old kid and there weren't any food that was special for The kids The stroller i travelled with it and i received it with the bags, while when travelling to dubai i received it back on the plane gate which was much better"
Pros: "Flight was delayed, so missed the connection. Was made to wait at Bahrain for more than 24 hours without any accommodation. Will never travel by gulf air again. It's the worst airline in the world."

Cons: "Boarding by bus is always unpleasant."

Pros: "Being able to watch new releases. The food was good."
Cons: "Times we ate took too long. We were on a 10+ hour flights and it would've been better if we ate more. No leg room in your Isle, you must become a stick and not move, become one with the plane. In Bahrain they force us to cancel our flight and charged us extra 600+ USD to move the flight to the next day. Even though I paid for insurance, then I had to pay an extra 20BD for my wife to leave the island, and it took 2 hours to tell us we owe 20BD... Bahrain is a place I would not like to return."
Pros: "The food and services in Bahrain airport and in plane"
Cons: "Although I do not have small children, I think it would be helpful to allow people traveling with small children to board a few minutes ahead of everyone else."
