Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was nice, and there was sufficient overhead space for my bag."
Cons: "I've flown hundreds of times, and this was the most most unpleasant flight I've ever taken. My seat didn't recline, the entertainment console was not working properly, and I had almost no legroom due to the design of the seat. The temperature was unbearably hot. And I didn't get my special meal."

Pros: "I had a great time. The best part was that my luggage reached on time!! Thank you!"

Cons: "I carried the same exact baggage from my SFO-DXB flight into DXB-MAA flight but was still charged excess baggage. Even after being asked to checkin my luggage I found that I could carry it in and there was more than enough space to accomodate everyone."

Pros: "Overall flight quality"
Cons: "Free wifi time can be increased to at least an hour and Food quality can be better"

Pros: "Seat was very comfortable."
Cons: "Everything was good, one little thing, just had to wait for crew member to respond to the bell."

Pros: "Seating and entertainment was very good."
Cons: "Hindu Non vegetarian meals could have been better"

Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The crew was non existent when something was needed, and a flight attendant tried to move us from our purchased seats to accommodate a woman who moved 3 times. While the attendant was mistaken; he insisted on seeing disturbing our sleep and asked to see our boarding pass as if we were not being honest. All that he said was , “oops, wrong row” and moved on as if nothing happened. No apology, nothing."

Pros: "I liked everything! Excellent service. Great food, entertainment, and flight. Nothing went wrong. Thank you!"

Cons: "Good job!!"

Pros: "The food and the ICE video center"
Cons: "The fact the crew lets people stand around in front of you in the Exit row. For what Emirates charges for this added “luxury” it’s ridiculous."

Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Boarding in Dubai was not according to zones and it was crowded"

Pros: "Good serevice"
Cons: "Chettinad fish curry is good"

Pros: "excellent staff and friendly flight attendant."
Cons: "i wish next time the flight will includes a hotel for the over night stay. I had to sleep on the seats at the airport."

Cons: "Not able to select seats during online checkin free of cost."

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly, flight was very comfortable with great entertainment options. Attentive staff!"

Cons: "Service was very poor,. Not enough employees or lack of interest."

Pros: "Excellent service by staff.Food is superb. Overall happy experience."

Pros: "Same as above."

Pros: "The service the movies the food"

Cons: "During initial boarding at IAD our carry on baggage was ok. But boarding at Dubai there was carry-on baggage weight check and we had to pay additional $200. And then our baggage was then checked in. Seemed to be totally unethical."

Pros: "The shops were great, but not enough time to get to them due to multiple security checks.Emirates delayed takeoff by over 30 minutes to accommodate their passengers."
Cons: "Wait time, due to multiple security checks, the staff that were performing them were inconsistent. KWI could do better."

Cons: "I have transit for 18 hours and they did not give me a hotel I had to pay for it because they were saying my ticket is not eligible are you really get disappointed from this"

Cons: "Flight was 15 hours long. Vegetarian food is not provided. We were unable to select food options online before boarding."

Pros: "Movie options were good"
Cons: "Food was mediocre, service was poor crew took 20 mins to answer the request, our food was served very late, no legroom, no good snack refreshment options"

Pros: "Overall, Emirates is an incredible flying experience, we just got unlucky on this turn. The food is quite incredible, the entertainment bar-none the best and the amenities makes you feel like you're in business class."
Cons: "The flight had an overall 3 hour delay and they completely lost our luggage upon returning from Europe and to a wedding. That's worst case scenario."

Cons: "Seat selection is paid."

Pros: "Crew and the upgraded entertainment system. Especially, the nee touch screen and 3.5 mm support in the headphone jack."

Cons: "Wheel chair travellers not comfortable as they didnt find help and also have to wait for long time to get their turn"

Pros: "Great hospitality from the crew and quality plane facilities."

Cons: "."

Pros: "Emirates is my carrier of choice, and that's due to their continued service standards, friendliness and rates. This flight was pretty empty so service was even better and I was able to spread myself out. Also, well done to the crew. They continue to maintain high standards."
Cons: "This is the first time it's happened to me, but I was scheduled to leave Oslo on Wednesday, but Emirates cancelled my flight and put me on the next one. It would have been alright had they offered some sort of compensation or made it up to me in one way or another, but that was not going to happen. They cancelled and the cost was on me (as per the T's & C's I was told) and that was pretty much that. Here's a hint, it seems like their Scandinavian flights are underperforming and in a cost saving effort, they're randomly cancelling flights. I subsequently found out they did it to someone else in the area causing them to miss two days of a pre-booked vacation. So, if they cancel, it's going to cost you a lot more in a city like Oslo to wait a day - not to mention the costs involved in missing work or vacation, so maybe shop around then. I still like Emirates, but I'm feeling a little burnt after this episode."

Pros: "This was a short flight, but still they served coffee, tea, and food. Amazing."
Cons: "Not much to say. All was fine on such a short leg of the trip"

Pros: "Very comfortable and smooth ride new plane from SF to Dubail"
Cons: "Business class too expensive for individual travelers"

Pros: "Great flight from Milano to NYC. Always traveling with emirates"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional. I want to hightlight the exceptional quality of the meal served"

Pros: "The Airbus was very good -as comfortable as possible in Economy."
Cons: "It was a little noisy in our seats (we were next to one of the crew areas). But the biggest gripe was about the way we were treated when queuing. We all expect to have to wait our turn but it's incredibly frustrating when 1) the system isn't fair (eg splitting a queue into two then allowing those behind you to go to the front of a new line) and 2) treating us like second class by drawing a curtain in front of our faces so Business class people don't have to see us when they disembark."

Pros: "I did not like the vegetarian food that was offered"

Pros: "Boarding procedure kept changing from flight to flight,keeping one guessing....Food(Asian Vegetarian was so so...served at random...."
Cons: "Luggage came on time."

Pros: "Food was great. Service was great."
Cons: "Need to have more leg space for a long haul flight."

Pros: "Food was amazing crew was too helpful nice DDF overall flight was good will travel again"
Cons: "We kept a option for wheel chair but no one turned up that was disappointing."

Pros: "Free meal. Free drinks. Not packed so it was comfortable. Great accomodating staff, they were definately amazing even in economy. Power at every seat to charge devices a great list of movies shows etc... food was great tasting and good portion. I enjoyed this flight more than american, delta or any of the big name companies. They should strive to be this good."

Cons: "It is about 14 hour long flight. There should be m more number of meals served. Pizza served as As snack was cheap, ok but not that great, should have been a meal (lunch or dinner)"

Pros: "Enjoyed the flight and would rate the overall experience 4+. The only negative is the unduly long time for the luggage to reach the belt. You may like to look into this. Thanks."

Cons: "drinks not offered during first two hours of flight"

Pros: "Every thing , service , taking off and landing ."
Cons: "Nothing , every thing was perfect"

Pros: "Great food and entertainment options on this flight. I appreciated that the flight crew asked all passengers to close the window drapes so we could all sleep. The chairs in economy seem to lay back further than other airlines which made it more comfortable."
Cons: "I would like to be upgraded to first class. :)"

Pros: "Too cramped -there was no order while boarding -seats were less spacious -Film was of poor quality and i had to switch off -the buttons were less user friendly"

Cons: "Was not able to get preferred choice of meal due to insufficient availability."

Pros: "I was siting by an exit door, and it was plenty of room for my long legs."
Cons: "Nothing not to like."

Pros: "Small plane, decent space, short flight."
Cons: "Legroom."

Pros: "It was on time and got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "The crew often bashed my wife's elbow with their trolleys. I am 6'2" and I could not sit with my legs straight in front of me. There is no leg room and the seats do not recline very far. The food was repulsive. They ran out of vegetarian options (my wife is a vegetarian) and what we did eat turned our stomachs."

Cons: "Food was a little underwhelming for First Class."

Cons: "First flight delayed, missed flight to SF, stuck in frankfurt. A hotel is not adequate compensation"

Pros: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Nothing much to say. The crew was polite, kind and professional."
Cons: "nothing."

Pros: "The incoming pilot to Nice parked at the wrong gate and apparently, once parked, it could not be moved. So the airport had to scramble buses which made the flight depart more than an hour late. We had a 50-minute layover and Lufthansa did not hold the plane. So we got home a day late."
Cons: "They could have left Nice on time, or held the plane for us in Munich."

Pros: "Good. Thank you."

Cons: "Missed connection flight in Chicago due to a technical delay in Munich, the tank vehicle had a defect and the ground power in Chicago went out. It is now the 4 th time that we got stranded in Chicago. So Condor, Lufthansa and Chicago are getting on our shitlist......"

Cons: "Same as previous"

Cons: "Leg room"

Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."

Pros: "Lufthansa will always be my choice airline. Their staff are nicely dressed, accommodating and well mannered."
Cons: "On this trip back to Dublin, our flight from Munich to Dublin was delayed for over two hours. It would be nice for Lufthansa to at least offer the passengers something to eat or drink while on board waiting for such a long time."

Pros: "Service on the DFW-->FRA leg was phenomenal (ratio of attendants to fliers). Food was delicious and seats very comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding process and organization could have been a bit better in communicating access and groups. Not super critical, but the goal in in process is to be as efficient as possible."

Cons: "Service was poor, lack of vegetarian food"

Cons: "See problem with the KAYAK reservation above."

Pros: "It was a great airline! I flew economy but still was very comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't have a long enough layover in Chicago and ended up missing my next flight. At least an hour and a half should be allotted going through customs in O'Hare. Then an additional 2 hours to recheck bags and get across the airport. This also allows extra time for delays."

Cons: "The gates kept changing and people were standing in line without being told how long the wait would be, or what was going on. A little challenging when you have overseas connecting flights ."

Pros: "The crew were helpful"
Cons: "I had to pay luggage fees"

Cons: "Luggage lost"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice they still give a snack"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Efficient boarding process"
Cons: "Only got a cookie for food"

Cons: "No food or entertainment"

Cons: "Boarding and departure was late."

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "This was an emergency trip to see my mother who was in the hospital. The flight was delayed so I had no option but to board the next day since I wouldn't be able to make it to the connecting flight in Frankfurt. They couldn't give me another connecting flight since it was all full. Because I booked my ticket only hours before my flight, they said it might not be possible to fulfil my meal request since there's a 24 hours cut off. However, now I had to cone back to the airport and take the next days flight which gave the airline more than 24 hours from my original meal request. I still did not get the meal I requested, the crew didn't know about it and didn't have any to spare. This was my first time flying Lufthansa, I probably won't try it again."

Cons: "Poor food on first leg. Sat by a man who was allowed to have 7 cans of beer. On second leg of journey I was willing to pay for food. The best choice for anyone trying to eat a healthy diet was pot noodles. Air Canada get 2 stars. Return journey on United gets 4stars."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "when seats recline in economy you can barely get in and out of a seat"

Pros: "Seats on PE were comfortable, on time, clean flight."
Cons: "The worst crew possible, absolutely no concept of customer service, Last flight on lufthansa....so no more complaints Customers needs training on how to use the LOO."

Pros: "Food and complimentary drinks (including wine)."
Cons: "Could improve the economy class boarding process (go by sections instead all at once)."

Cons: "Overall okay. Boarding was substandard"

Cons: "Horrible in flight food. Even in the business class it was mediocre at best. The in-flight entertainment system did not have a responsive interface. The content was dated."

Pros: "Good crew, okay seats, perfectly adequate food"
Cons: "Entertainment choices were not so hot. Lots of movies, but few new ones."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for the conditions of the weather although it was clear and nice upon our arrival. Then the airlines did not deliver our luggage and we had to wait for it"

Cons: "I had to endure 10 hours sitting next to an obese passenger, who was to big to fit into his seat and had to rest his shoulder and elbow over my seat. The crew couldn't do much and so I had to shift myself sideways for the entire journey in order to make space for this obese passenger to rest his arm into and over my seat."

Pros: "There was very little if anything positive"
Cons: "Delays led to missing connecting flight. Delays could've been avoided. Staff were unhelpful, noncommunicative and poorly informed."

Cons: "Not so friendly crew"

Cons: "I selected seats and when I got on the plane I was moved twice. The seats were very small and uncomfortable. The food was bad."

Pros: "The crew was very assertive, plenty of snacks and drinks, good food. Flight went on smooth and the captain lender splendidly. Seats were comfortable with plenty of leg space, entertainment had numerous choices. Would recommend to friends."
Cons: "Everything's was fine"

Pros: "The staff was quite good and they knew how to treat passengers well."
Cons: "Not really anything to complain about."

Pros: "Fast the boarding process all in time good food"
Cons: "All was alright"

Pros: "the crew was good"
Cons: "the seating was cramped. could use more leg room. The food was average."

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

Pros: "Great staff and thoughtful professional attention makes travel better!"
Cons: "There were some spaces and I might have done a modest upgrade but not offered when asked at check in."

Cons: "My connecting flight was very close in time and even when I told a stewardess while I was exiting the plane, she made no effort to get me any help to arrive at my next gate faster. This resulted in my having to run to my gate after waiting on the long line at customs and I barely made my flight. Had I not been as physically able, I would have missed my flight even at my normal fast-walking pace. This should not have occurred- I should not have to run to my gate from one flight to another especially when I raised this concern to an employee of Lufthansa as well as a customs officer."

Pros: "The cabin crew were well trained, hospitable and efficient. The young lady assigned to our section of the aircraft worked endlessly to address the needs of passengers, and remained extremely pleasant and often humorous, throughout the passage."
Cons: "The boarding process unnecessarily was long and hot. We stood in the jet ramp line for nearly 15 minutes before entering the aircraft. There was no ventilation and the air was tepid. The seats were smaller in Economy Class than on competitor carriers. The lavs were unattended to during the 7 hour flight and, consequently, were filthy during the last hour or two. The food was mediocre, at best, but at least the cocktails were not an upcharge. Enough alcohol can make just about any food palatable."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine and comfortable"
Cons: "It was extremely disorganized at the check-in counter. There was just a mass of people that eventually led to some lines but it wasn't even clear where the line started. In addition, the boarding itself was a mess and the plane departed late. There were no self check-in kiosks with baggage drops so people could have another option besides going to a counter and there wasn't anyone monitoring the line to make sure it was an orderly process. We were early so there wasn't an issue with waiting per se but rather with the process itself."

Pros: "Great crew. Comfortable seats on plane. Stayed on time."

Pros: "I am very please, and will use Lufthanza always!"
Cons: "All was great"

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "But leg room."

Pros: "crew is an absolute plus- stands out from most any other airline"

Pros: "This Transavia Airlines is not good at all."
Cons: "Many things cheaper does mean better."

Pros: "Confort and kindness"
Cons: "It was too cold"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Staff: from check in to landing, they could at least smile. Baggage claim was a nightmare, 6 Schengen flights in the same belt."

Pros: "Usual faultless KLM experience"
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Boarding was crazy. Could not everyone in the gate area."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Baggage checkin & flight boarding was slow & disorganized."

Pros: "Crew was great, very responsive and hospitable!"
Cons: "more lunch choices, especially choices without dairy products."

Pros: "The crew was great. The soecial meal request was hadled well despite oversight."
Cons: "Soecial meal request was made in advance but overlooked. Did not mind it so much as eating less is not a bad idea! To err is human."

Cons: "Not being 1 hour late"

Cons: "Flight got delayed 30 minutes"

Cons: "Staff rude and short"

Cons: "This was just a short commuter flight from Lyon to Amsterdam for connection."

Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"

Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"

Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."

Pros: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"
Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"

Pros: "The crew were really helpful with people who had tight connections because of the delayed flight"
Cons: "I wish they had WiFi"

Cons: "The website I booked on and the Delta phone line on the printed ticket said that I had baggage when it turns out that I did not according to the check in staff and they made me pay."

Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable with enough leg space even without choosing extra space seats. It was my childhood dream come true to fly with KLM. It was really an exciting trip for me, just that it was short."
Cons: "Well, for me everything was on point. Those who have never travelled with KLM, I would encourage them to do so and I’m sure they will not regret."

Pros: "Nice seats. Only seats with a row of 2, which is what I wanted,"

Pros: "Very pleased with KLM - efficiency all round and especially the baggage handling at Schipol swhere I had 20 minutes to transfer and my baggage came back with me to the UK which is no mean feat given the hustle and bustle of such a large airport"
Cons: "No downsides at all"

Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."

Pros: "Smooth and faster than expected trip. I felt free to get up and walk around on this long flight. Food was good. I sat in seat with extra leg room for the first time and it was worth it"

Cons: "Turn the lights on early making it hard to sleep"

Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. I travel KLM often and always enjoy the flights."
Cons: "There were several flight delays and gates were changes a few times."

Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."

Cons: "None of our 4 checked bags arrived with us. This was despite ample connection time (2+ hours) in Amsterdam."

Pros: "Employees were very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were very small"

Pros: "The attention and service!! Excellent. It was my birthday and KLM the head purser surprised me with 2 bottles of bubbles and a handwritten birthday card KlM and the crew of this flight thank you very much !"
Cons: "Nothing to say"

Pros: "More than adequate room, And very good service from a very professional staff. Head and shoulders abovevany American carrier, and several European lines I have flown."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."

Cons: "The movie selection did not seem extremely varied."

Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."

Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time"

Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."

Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."

Cons: "It was announced I can choose between fish and chicken meal but when I requested for fish meal, I was told it’s finished. My seat was 21, and it surprised me. If something can be changed about that then your services would be much appreciated. Thank you."

Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."

Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."

Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."

Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"

Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"

Pros: "Loads of leg room"
Cons: "Loved everything"

Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."

Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth and hassle free, crew were friendly and helpful, food and drinks were very good, entertainment system is awesome and up to date with latest contents, good flight overall"
Cons: "Cabin noise and air conditioning too cold, didn't sleep well"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "--"
Cons: "One and a half hour delay on a 50 minute flight. Flight was operated by Cityjet on behalf of KLM. Never have I seen such bad customer service: from rude people at the bagage drop off to incompetent hostesses at the boarding gate."

Pros: "La ponctualité."
Cons: "Variété des boissons proposées."

Pros: "Poor"
Cons: "Poor"

Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "In-flight system had some errors"

Pros: "The crew was OK, but nothing special."
Cons: "Air France should not sell tickets for which the connection flights are almost impossible to catch. My luggage was not transferred to my connecting flight. I had to run to catch the flight to Bucharest. At CDC there were only two custom officers for checking passport of EU citizens, on a Saturday morning with hundreds and hundreds incoming travelers. On top of it, one female officer was rude. Typical french :("

Cons: "Seats are not comfortable for long haul. Airbus 380 premier economy. Not enough reclining and leg support."

Pros: "The seat was very comfortable."
Cons: "My boyfriend and I were required to gate check our carry-on luggage which required us to go through customs in Paris to get to our bag and re-enter security for our connecting international flight. I am unsure why this was the case as other passengers brought the same size luggage. Very upsetting."

Pros: "Seats are comfortable on Business Class. Service is good"
Cons: "Constant delays specially from CDG! Poor cabin service specially on this flight."

Pros: "Everything! The service was exceptional!"

Cons: "the tray was broken and the water felt all over. the flight was 1 hr delayed. All of us stood the 1 hr waiting to know what's next. We could sit."

Cons: "CDG airport in Paris is a very inefficient and by far the slowest airport. I recommend other passengers to get to the airport at least 4 hours before their departure."

Pros: "Great food and friendly crew."
Cons: "Seatback system was old and not very functional."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful in all respects."
Cons: "Not getting everyone standing in line to board one hour and 10 minutes before scheduled departure."

Pros: "Great crew and prompt boarding."
Cons: "Airline food and close main cabin seating. Should offer upgraded meals, just like the extra seating space."

Cons: "There was no entertainment and the food could be better"

Cons: "Too much time spent at boarding. On luggage missing."

Cons: "Lost my luggage."

Cons: "Not to be late ,and not to loose my luggege"

Cons: "The food was mediocre. Flying La Compagnie in the past was a much better food experience."

Cons: "Booked with my partner. Ended up sitting apart. Not good"

Pros: "Fantastic Crew!"
Cons: "Seats are comfortable but tight."

Pros: "Air France has the best crews! They really go the extra mile."
Cons: "My skis were lost on the way to Riga and had to be delivered 2 days later to Vilnius. That said, the situation was handled very professionally."

Pros: "En deux mots, tout était médiocre, avion, « nourriture » (si on appeler ça comme ça) même les hôtesses travaillaient avec une sale gueule.. Très déçu d’Air France"
Cons: "Le capitain et l’aterrisage"

Cons: "Tiny uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "Crew and boarding were very good. Very helpful to foreigners. Thank you Coffe was really good didn’t eat food. Sleeping."
Cons: "Business class seats weren’t comfortable and too narrow no entertainment."

Pros: "We flew with our special needs child without requesting any particular accommodations except for gluten free meals. The gate staff and flight crew identified him and allowed us special bordering that facilitated the process. That act of kindness is a rare experience on our part. Thank you Air France staff!"

Passengers crowding from back of plane upon arrival made it hard to deplane and felt rude."
