Airline reviews

Pros: "At least it was delayed so we could make it to SFO."
Cons: "The American Airlines flight was delayed so the delayed flight from Honolulu could make it to Los Angeles and not subject AA to additional complaints. We arrived at close to midnight and worried about getting the car out of the parking lot without incurring additional charges of and additional day. The food was not great."

Pros: "Everything was amazing! Crew was helpful, thoughtful and kind."
Cons: "Nothing. It was great. Strongly recommend."

Pros: "The crew was great and entering and exiting the plane was quick."
Cons: "The seats could have been more comfortable, but I feel like that is a comment for most planes that fly internationally."

Pros: "The coach seats were larger than seats for domestic flights. The windows were dimmable for optimal lighting."
Cons: "The armrests did not go up all the way, which made it difficult to maximize comfort with my travel partner."

Pros: "Crew was attentive and informative of delays"
Cons: "This was American Airlines .. my Bags came out late even though i was in Biz Class"

Cons: "More movies :)"

Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The window shades were so cool. Seat was small but fairly comfortable and I like the foot rest."
Cons: "No vegetarian options on the main meal menu"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and polite, seats are some of the most comfortable of any airline I've flown (particularly compared to the US domestics), entertainment is solid (although the English movie selection was not that large), and we were regularly offered food and drink if we were awake. I would definitely recommend JAL to others."
Cons: "The food was not to my liking (i.e., all Japanese style, but not necessarily types that appeal more to Westerners) but it was palatable."

Pros: "Professionalism with friendliness of the crew and the service provided."
Cons: "No issues with flight and boarding."

Pros: "That I probably won’t have to deal with AA for a while."
Cons: "The boarding process was a joke. No seat assignments until the last second. The front desk personnel would not help us with a seat assignment and said they were “working on it”. I sat down with my wife in the waiting area and observed the front desk personnel joking around with each other for the next 45 minutes before the flight. Very unprofessional and not helpful. Not a good way to represent your airline."

Pros: "Customer service was on point . Thanks Again !"

Pros: "Lots of room in premium economy, good entertainment selection. Clean bathroom ! Excellent service. Food was mediocre."

Pros: "The Crew"
Cons: "This terminal is not easy to find. You have to take bus from the main terminal."

Cons: "To Osaka was very good. Return flight back to US was mediocre. Flight attendant was forgetful about getting even water even with a half full flight."

Cons: "Crew that joked around and made loud laughters during flight Nonchalant crew serving attitude with reckless, indifferent safety demonstration Tasteless snack Delayed takeoff and prolonged landing AC as cold as in a fridge"

Pros: "Comfortable and service was pleasant"
Cons: "Like all of it except lack of vegetarian option for food"

Pros: "Seats are extremely comfortable even in economy. Service was attentive and very gracious. Both meals were above average for airline food. Made a 12 hour flight seem much shorter!"

Pros: "All fright attendant are so nice and polite, also pretty. The meals are great and they served nice ice cream for dessert, the good quality ones! The bathroom was always clean, they keep it up so well. there was even toothbrushes and paper cup! I really enjoyed it even though I was in economy."
Cons: "only limited number of movie."

Pros: "The crews were polite and reliable. No bossy or mean like other airlines. they moved prompt, no running or fast walk on aisles, so that passengers can ask things easily. Food was much better comparing with any other companies. The boarding time was delayed one hour, however we landed japan 2, 3 mins later than the estimated arrival time. Landing technique was beautiful. American, United, ANA which I flew caused me have a deep Earache. I didn't get any pain from this flight. I am already scared of returning flight with American airplines."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The level of service in Business Class was perfect. Flight attendants were friendly and very helpful"
Cons: "I thought the food was just so so. However, that's always a matter of personal taste."

Pros: "As expected from JAL, the flight was amazing in every way. The food (the Japanese meal) was not typical airline food, it was actually very good. The courtesy packets had many useful items including eye refreshers, lip balm, and the bathrooms were kept very clean and stocked with both mouthwash and toothbrush/paste. All together as flawless and comfortable an experience as possible on a commercial carrier."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like, but if I could make a suggestion it would be to offer a larger selection of movies and shows on the long-haul flights. Also the cabin twmperature was a bit too warm but I understand that might vary from flight to flight."

Pros: "Superior service in a great and spacious plane."
Cons: "Seats are a bit flat and shallow, besides that it was awesome!"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Food, especially before landing"

Pros: "Plane was not sold out, I was able to have the roll with my girlfriend. All flights should be like this."
Cons: "They made me pay for a seat that they gave to other people for free. Really messed up."

Pros: "I hope to always find the great deals I have with Japan Airlines and continue with a smooth traveling experience as this one!"

Pros: "Food & entertainment"

Cons: "Never make it on flight because the connection flight so messed up. Need to purchase new ticket with different airline finally."

Pros: "Food, entertainment options, friendly staff"
Cons: "Beverage size could be more"

Pros: "JAL has customer service that no other airline comes close to."
Cons: "Nothing, JAL is perfect. I mean it"

Pros: "The flight went well and the 3 meals were interesting. The staff was professional."
Cons: "It's kinda hard to sleep. Some of the food could taste a bit fresher and less microwaved."

Pros: "Everything was good, solid across the board. Nothing to not like. I especially liked the legroom in economy. Probably the best legroom I"ve had in economy."

Pros: "What sets JAL apart is the quality of service both on the ground and in the air. As customers, even in economy, no request was too minor to be treated as the most important of the day. Both legs were on time, the meals were excellent, and the chouce of movies was more than adequate. I will fly with JAL again."

Cons: "Not much leg room"

Pros: "Service was amazing and made me feel like I was in first class."
Cons: "The food wasn't good and the seats seemed outdated relative to other JAL flights I have taken on this route."

Cons: "The food was bad, but this is my first time having such bad food on JAL."

Pros: "Food and beverages service .very pleasant attendants..economy tough on 11 hr flight..fee seemed reasonable though. .ovreally nice experience"
Cons: "11 hr flight"

Pros: "It was my first time flying to Japan from LA and the experience was great. Yeah my flight was delay by 3 hours for reasons out of their control and I missed my connecting flight but they completely made up for it. The food and drinks were really good along with the service. Plus they booked me on another flight along with a hotel for the night. Awesome service and experience, I would travel with them again."
Cons: "I don't have anything to complain about."

Pros: "I enjoyed the amenities. I flew economy and was treated like a first class. Will definitely fly with Japan airlines again !"
Cons: "Everything was great !"

Pros: "evening flight. not too crowded"
Cons: "delayed by 1 hour meal was so-so"

Pros: "Great entertainment options. Didn't try the food but I never do. Friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "nothing at all...horrible aircraft, horrible flight"
Cons: "1) could not pre-book seat as it was a codeshare. You should change that...better on a budget carrier 2) The plane is not competitive, ancient entertainment system, no power in seats to plug in 3) Entertainment system did not work for all but 10 minutes or so of the flight. 4) food was really horrid, no japanese option!"

Pros: "Same as before"
Cons: "Same as before"

Pros: "The crew was really sweet and making sure passengers were comfortable."

Pros: "Great crew, great customer service by phone, great food and entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding and deplaning took ages, but don't they always?"

Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent, food service very good. If the service is so good in economy, I can't imagine how nice it would be to fly in business class. I would fly Qatar Airlines all the time if the price is right."
Cons: "Economy row seats don't give you enough space for your legs between rows, but this is a systemic problem among airlines. You have to live with it or move up to business class."

Pros: "Service & information"
Cons: "I didn’t get a hotel despite having more than 12 hours transit. I was told I don’t qualify for hotel stay but didn’t get the reason why"

Pros: "Entertainment and food is always great with Qatar!"
Cons: "After I got in my seat an Islamic lady came and said that I was in her seat. I looked at her ticket and while it was the right seat number, she was on the wrong flight. I got a stewardess to help her. She had gone through 3 boarding pass checks and was still on the wrong flight. They let her fly!"

Pros: "The service as usual on Qatar is excellent"
Cons: "2-2-2 setup is old style for business class and while the seats were nice it means either you are stuck by the window or need to move to let others out in the aisle"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "transit timing was a bit hectic."

Pros: "The Crew were professional, friendly and comforting. The A380 Business Class is the best way to fly. Smooth journey, very comfortable reclining beds with enough room to within the bed area to move around with adequate space. The Wine list was excellent with a great choice and variety."
Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight...but Qatar could have offered an airport hotel room to their Bus. Class passengers for the 9 hour delay....we did have the Lounge, but a shower, rest and comfort after another previous 5 hour 30 minutes flight from Athens 11.30am Start to 2.00am start from Doa."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "WC size (too small) and location. Other airlines such as Lufthansa (NYC - Munich) do way better job in this category ( I believe Lufthansa aircraft was either A330 or 340)"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "seat space with leg room."

Pros: "New plane and Q suite was excellent"
Cons: "The AVML selection could be better"

Pros: "Great service from all staff ,"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"

Cons: "food options exhausted pls tell ground catering to provide more food"

Pros: "While my Qatar airways flight from Houston to Doha (# 714) was almost perfect, flight #1335 from Doha to Nairobi was a huge disappointment."
Cons: "The flight attendants didn't seem to know what they were doing, food ran out before i got any breakfast, the IFE system for my seat didn't work,"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth; Plane was clean; Flight departed on time;"
Cons: "Flight arrived late for no obvious reason; Crew was good but not as good as what I have experienced in the past with Qatar and other airlines"

Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."

Cons: "Connecting Qatar flight should have been held, instead wen had to spend 9 hours in the airport until next flight"

Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."

Pros: "Excellent service. Excellent quality of food."

Cons: "I had been told my checkin bags will be available at final destination but I had to pick them up at Delhi and do the checking in once more which was a lot of hassle with kids"

Cons: "I’m a 6’3” in shape man. I selected the bulkhead seats for extra leg room. Great crew, but my shoulders stuck past the seat edge 3” on both sides. Qatar should revise their claim of most room in cabin - this 12 hour flight was one of the roughest I’ve had in a long time comfort wise."

Pros: "Flight was without any hitches, could have done better with boarding after the previous mishap of a 5 hour delayed flight and being forced to stay in Doha for a night which put everyone's schedules off by a day. Still, I would book another flight with Qatar airways for their efforts and overall good service."
Cons: "It would have been nice if Qatar Airlines also provided Priority Boarding for everyone on the flight that got delayed as there was a long line just to get to the boarding area."

Pros: "Dedicated to customer service"

Pros: "Boarding from Doha and service in doha."
Cons: "ASSISTANCE IN DELHI..my parents did not even get wheel chair after long tiring journey..they were keep trying for help and did not get any help..I am asking is this the airline duty or not to give assistance who is in need.even did not get the porter to carry the heavy luggage.is anyone responsible for that? what is the use of this nonsense servey?"

Pros: "Very nice. Everything was great."

Pros: "Excellent airport; always on time; good meals; excellent entertainment"

Pros: "Landing and botding is safe"
Cons: "...."

Pros: "Business class was wonderful liked pjs, food, seating. Etc"
Cons: "Crew left a small amount of champagn in a glass which fell on me when I was asleep. Crew only offered first meal after that did not offer food only when I requested it. Limited gluten/ dairy free options"

Pros: "They make you feel like a person"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Really helpful i was the first one out from airport because i was assigned wheelchair."
Cons: "Everything was all set. Only shortcoming was No free wifi"

Pros: "Comfort and Cleaniness."
Cons: "Food and ways to provide chairs - avoiding providing wheel chairs and food requirement."

Cons: "Seats"

Pros: "The entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn't have any complaints. I thought everything went very well."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Catering not up-to the standard. Ran out of food. Seats too congested"

Pros: "Excellent service and in time flights."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Crew was exceptional and in-flight entertainment options superb. Meals were well apportioned and delicious."
Cons: "Seats were a little narrow, especially the middle ones but to be expected when flying economy."

Pros: "Another B787. Had empty seats next to me."
Cons: "No menus handed out by the crew and little explanation of what the meal was beyond beef and rice or chicken and potato. For some reason they only serve a snack instead of a second meal on this flight."

Pros: "I like that the air stewards bring you water and drinks throughout and don't judge you for being too thirsty. I like that they respect that it is a night flight and serve the meal quickly so it can be dark for the whole flight and you can sleep as much as you can. I like how efficient the layover is in Doha - only 40mins!"
Cons: "I don't like when they don't ask the person in front to move their chair up for the meal and the passengers have to ask each other. I don't like that they can't tell you the gate of your connecting flight and how long it will take to get you there - including if you will need to take a bus and the train. I think this could reduce a lot of anxiety. If they could do this, it would also be helpful to let people who have a connecting flight that is boarding in the next 30 mins off the plane first. This would save pushing and shoving in the aisles... and would also reduce anxiety about booking a flight with such a short layover."

Pros: "Once I made it to my seat, easily slipped back into a meditative trance."
Cons: "Unannounced delays. Waited in a line, then another one. Probably just different security protocol than I'm used to."

Pros: "Everyone on board was pleasantly and helpful and that goes a long way."

Cons: "I never made it to the Yerevan to Doha flight, because Qatar Airways did not get me to my destination in time. They had an emergency landing in The Azores, after turbulence and several passengers got injured, when the pilot failed to warn passengers to put on their seat belts and they flew into the air, hitting the ceiling before falling down. One passenger had a heart attack. Once they de-planed us in The Azores, not a single Qatar Airways employee helped us on site anymore. Passengers were left in the hands of hotel and airport staff. There was very little communication with the passengers. A relief flight was supposed to come in 12 hours. It did not come for another 35. After the emergency landing, some passengers noticed that a wing looked defective. The disruption may not have been due only to bad weather, but a defective plane as well."

Pros: "Excellent customer service"

Pros: "I will fly Qatar again"

Pros: "When I missed my connection in Dohar, I was put up in an excellent hotel with all expenses paid and great food."
Cons: "When I arrived late in Doha because my flight from Heathrow was delayed, it was difficult to find help when I was trying to rush to make it in time for my connecting flight to Haneda."

Pros: "the crew, the comfort, the entertainment."
Cons: "My first time on Qatar, I'd heard only good things. The food was surprisingly bad, tasteless or bad tasting. Sure I'd take Qatar over most other airlines, but it seems maybe there are cutting corners on their food."

Cons: "They cancelled our flight without informing us from Doha to Miami, so they were going to fly us to Doha at 3 a.m., take us to hotel, and then have us fly the next day. This was the third time this airlines cancelled a flight on us for the same trip. The first two times were traveling from Miami to Delhi, we had to change our itinerary because they cancelled the flight, and we had to fly on different dates. This caused a series of hotel changes and cancellations costing us a lot of money. On the flight that we finally got from Doha to JFK, the man sitting next to me SMELLED LIFE THE FUNK OF 40,000 YEARS. It is unbearable. Thirteen hours of pungent body odor that even the flight attendants acknowledged was horrific. It was a miserable experience flying with this airline for what was to be the trip of a lifetime."

Pros: "Better crew members"
Cons: "Seats and food.. This should be the last travel with Qatar airways."

Cons: "The sitting was so very small, I never traveled so crumpled."

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."

Pros: "Good crew, food was good for airline food. Entertainment offerings were good."
Cons: "Too many seats, 3-4-3 configuration means not even enough room to walk down aisle without bumping people in their narrow seats."

Pros: "Orderly boarding process. Considerate reseating when bulkhead with extra legroom were not usable."

Pros: "The crew was amazingly efficient serving food and drink. In the recline position the seat bottom extended which was far more comfortable than simply reclining."
Cons: "The food was mediocre and the selection of movies was very limited."

Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "AC was not turned on until flight was up in air. That means for 30 minutes passengers were sweating sitting in a suffocating cabin. Crew refused to give Green Tea, saying only available in business class Inflight screen size was very small ...5-6 inches only"

Cons: "I never made it on the flight. It was over booked, they switched me over... I'm still at the airport, missing two days of my vacation. Flights have been delayed from SFO, causing me to miss so many of the connecting flights..."

Cons: "Delayed flight and delayed layover"

Pros: "Smooth transfer from Terminal 3 to the International Terminal. Great airport. Easy boarding, friendly crew and very smooth flight."
Cons: "I was very happy with my flight experience with Swiss."

Pros: "Crew is great."
Cons: "The airline lost my luggage ."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Seat a pretty comfortable."

Pros: "The seat was ok, I paid $ 115 per Trip ( total of $ 230) just to sit at the emergency exit to have some leg room and then I am sitting next to the bathroom and people stepping on my feet because they tend to hang out around the bathroom."
Cons: "The flight attendant not wearing perfume. Food was very poor to say the least."

Cons: "Lost our bags"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Very good overall"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Boarding by rows and not like cows all at one time"

Pros: "Everyone was friendly, pleasant and very helpful. Upon arrival in Delhi our suitcase handle was broken."

Pros: "Everything!"

Pros: "The food was great. The service is excellent. Swiss Air gets an A+."

Pros: "Swiss is Swiss"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Great friendly crew. Efficient systems."
Cons: "Tight seats. Very little leg room."

Pros: "Flight was very smooth and on schedule."
Cons: "Seating in economy was very cramped (pitch felt like 77”) and food and entertainment nothing special. Somehow I had higher expectations for comfort and service, even in economy."

Cons: "Did NOT know ticket was economy light!!!! I WAS UPSET WE HAD TO PAY BAGGAGE FEE!!!!"

Pros: "Flight attendants were cheerful and efficient."
Cons: "I'm not a terribly large person, but there is zero room in economy. When the person in front of me put her seat back the screen was literally 6 inches from my face."

Pros: "Great cabin crew!"
Cons: "While waiting to board SFO-ZRH flight Swissair personnel walked around and randomly pulled out passengers from line to check luggage dimensions. Since manufacturers adhere to airline baggage standards, no violations were found during checks. This misguided effort only resulted in publicly humiliating Swissair customers. Boarding process was pure pandemonium...this was the first time in recent memory, where all coach passengers were invited to board at the same time! Very inefficient! Crowded seating in coach,with ten passengers sandwiched in across Boeing 767 aircraft. Competing airlines flying identical aircraft have nine across seatings Thin seat cushions cause leg cramps after a few hours."

Pros: "I was gratified to see that the 777 Boeing aircraft have now replaced the older Airbus aircraft..... This is my sixth time traveling to Switzerland from San Francisco on Swiss....Their service in my opinion remains excellent......The cabin crew was cheerful friendly yet remained very efficient at the same time... The food was very good, , The two meals that comes with one's Ticket still also comes with complimentary beverage service .... and even a warm moist towel is offered towards the end of the flight ... not bad for a seat in coach ...."
Cons: "I had no complaints except that there was a 40+ minute delay in receiving our checked baggage..... this could have been a problem With the airport ground crew at Zurich airport ....."

Cons: "2 hours delay!"

Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."

Pros: "Courteous Service and excellent hospitality"

Pros: "Families with small children can board with first class passengers. The staff member who checked us in greeted my son by his name at the plane door!"
Cons: "Some flight attendants were not attentive to service."

Pros: "The seat is designed beautifully. Staff and crew incredibly nice."
Cons: "Movie and TV choices were so limited. You really need to add more options. I found only 1 movie I liked."

Cons: "Very tight seating in economy for a transcontinental flight"

Pros: "Enjoyed the service."

Pros: "entertainment selection"
Cons: "upgrade entertainment system, needs touch screen and screen wouldn't turn off completely. leg room and space under seat"

Cons: "Could use some more seating space"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Passengers crowding the lane"

Pros: "We were very pleased with our flight on Swiss Air."

Cons: "No plugs for USB chargers in economy. Entertainment units were broken."

Pros: "Enjoyed the food. On demand entertainment. Beverage service."
Cons: "Despite paying for extra leg room I somehow needed more. Not Swiss Airs fault, but I know better for next time."

Cons: "Seat too small, no room, will never fly Swiss again. This was an 11 hour flight and I need more space and comfort."

Pros: "seat too tight"

Cons: "100% of our checked luggage was lost and two days into our one week biking trip in Sweden we have heard NOTHING from Swiss Air. No knowledge of where the four large bags are, no follow up and no help. Basically, we have been left with biking clothing and little hope that our bags will show up before we leave Sweden. Unacceptable and we will NEVER fly this airlines again."

Cons: "Missed my fight, not by my Folt(big accident on highway 80) .. Paid 400$ fee for next connecting flight, but first they told me I have to buy new ticket. My laguage was shipped only to Zurich, but destination was Vienna.. so they didn't let me on connecting flight.. It took another 3hours dealing with people from Swiss airlines(great service"

Pros: "1. The crew was very friendly and polite. 2. The food was good. 3. Service was good."

Pros: "the crew members were patient , helpful. Food presentation and taste were good."

Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "Very old plane. Had a big metal box at my feet, could not stretch out. Tv screens old and hard to watch. Food was pretty bleak too. Very disappointed."

Pros: "Great crew, and on time, of course: there Swiss!"
Cons: "Tech old and seats uncomfortable and plane loud."

Cons: "They will not give you seat confirmation unless you pay , very annoying"

Pros: "Stewards were great. The food was good and generous."
Cons: "Seat rows were too close together and seats were uncomfortable for the 11 hour flight."

Pros: "super nice crew-really friendly, accommodating, happy, all that sort of thing. really liked them and they're awesome!!"
Cons: "i am a regular sized woman, size 8, and a bit tall 5'9" and the seat felt wayyyy to small for me. couldn't put my hands naturally by my sides and the arm rests were too high to be comfortable, so i had to sit there with my shoulders held up the entire flight. was so sore afterwards!! also, the headphones barely worked (only one side, on the replacement as well!) and the entertainment system shut down twice."

Pros: "Great crew, clean bathrooms, second baggage free"
Cons: "Hot meals and different drinks available like coke or sparkling water, with payment if necessary ."

Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "encouraging passengers to do more social distancing at gates"

Pros: "My worst journey."

Cons: "Plane was delayed and boarding was a bit confusing at the start but then quickly fixed"

Cons: "Better seat."

Pros: "The # of movies."
Cons: "I sat next to 2 children. It smelled like baby poo off and on for the whole flight. There are no individual AC so the entire plane was on one temp which was stuffy and smelly at times. If some one passed gas, you could for sure smell it. I told the flight attendant and they agreed before I could describe so it wasn’t just me."

Pros: "Sam."
Cons: "Same.."

Pros: "Very nice love it"
Cons: "Very nice and love"

Pros: "The planets and stars we're aligned to provide an optimal trip. Price was a huge determinant for me...$800 RT Houston to Delhi just can't be beat. And, their arrival time into Delhi is so early (5: 20 am) that customs and immigration is a breeze."
Cons: "All good."

Pros: "The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable as possible"

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "I had to rearrange my bags 3-4 times even though I paid $80 additional for extra weight"

Pros: "Easy communication and promptness"

Cons: "Turkish Air lot my suitcase. I will never travel with them again"

Cons: "Missed the connecting flight because of flight boarding delay on the original destination. The airline did not accommodate my non-English speaking parents for overnight."

Cons: "boarding was messy at IST"

Cons: "Movies varaiety"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The flight was 5 hrs late. I have put 2 older passengers with knee problems. they have to go through the satires then what's the point of getting wheelchair???? you guys took $250 more on each tickets so the passengers can reach to their destination faster. but you ended up delaying the flights. and i asked around to many people after this and they told me that you always do it.

Neat clean A330, friendly crew & food + beverages to brag (you pay outrageous prices on 'leaner-meaner' airlines if at all available). Loved the whole experience. Flying is not only getting from A to B & Delta has realized it. Looking forward to my next Delta flight!"

She was extremely pleasant when explaining what was happening to flights, connections, etc. She was helpful when checking boarding passes to ensure that travellers were ok for their flight."

The screen did not seem receptive to the human finger and often the menu lines were small and very close together, leading to the incorrect item being selected. Finally I gave up and was just trying to put on "my flight", but it just made me take survey after survey, instead of allowing me access to "my flight" information."

Pros: "Ticket price in coach was good. Lots of available flights. Legroom was much better than expected. Service very good."
