First time traveling along with an elderly wheelchair🦽passenger and the entire trip experience from security check, onboarding, flight to off boarding were very smooth and effortless. The stewardesses were very professional, patient and caring during the entire flight. I highly recommend them.

The flight was almost full, and the airline was not able to seat the family together, even though we tried to check in online 24 hours before the flight. The food was much better than what is usually served on airlines, and the choice of entertainment was quite extensive.

The seats were tight and uncomfortable. Food service was just ok. I don't see how they're rated #1. I preferred Qantas over Qatar.

Qatar crew is really good

Connection of our flight to New York.

Late departure but almost all of the time made up in flight.

The flight was 4 hours late. We missed our flight to JFK.

Kayak canceled and reissued the ticket on the day before my travel, which messed up my seat You might got some money with the change , but your rating will go down

Will travel again

The flight was great. As far as the food is concerned it would be great to get little things like salt, pepper a small cube of butter (when bread is provided) with the meal.

Service excellence as always

Pros: "On time Very convenient price compared to other airlines"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff."

Cons: "The ticketing agent told me I had a window seat, but in reality I had a middle seat! For a 14 hour flight, that’s a big difference! Highly disappointed when i got to the gate and the plane had no window seats available."
Cons: "most of us sitting in and around me didn't get any rest or sleep as we had a passenger who had a psychotic breakdown and was screaming and poking everyone. She sprinkled me with water severally, I hope we get some sort of compensation from Qatar airways for this terrible disturbance"

Pros: "Food, entertainment options, comfortable seats, warm blankets"

Cons: "- Leg Space is challenge"
Pros: "Airport was pretty impressive,"
Cons: "Waiting Area in DOHA for boarding does not have a latrine to use, so once you checked in you can't go back out."
Pros: "They printed all 3 of my boarding passes for my connecting flights when I first checked in, made me worry about less"
Pros: "Stewards were great"

Cons: "food"
Cons: "The flight from Sao Paulo to Doha was canceled which delayed our travel by 24 hrs. With the baggage being mis-labeled from Rio we almost lost our bags. the crew was not communicative and the entire experience terribly stressful."

Cons: "The food ,however, was disappointing again."
Pros: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"
Cons: "I wish the airline was a bit more organized with boarding. I saw people with other zones boarding even when they were not called. The air hostess was friendly but I kinda got a feeling that she is doing me a huge favor when I asked for something more."
Pros: "Complimentary upgrade to business class."
Pros: "We enjoyed the comfort, food , staff and entertainment."
Cons: "The queuing for check-in, luggage control and plane boarding was much too long, 1 1/2 hrs +. The online check-in couldn't be used."

Cons: "Norhing really"
Pros: "Actually I can't even explain everything is good"
Cons: "My seat is changed without my approval.thats disgusting"
Pros: "I liked the schedule was on time and smooth plane ride."
Cons: "I did not like the room in the plane. The seats where to close and u I couldn't sit back because person behind u would complain. Flight attendants did not really going around to see if we were good r needed drinks or even smiled they looked very upset and had some attitude when I did ask for something. Customer service needs more improvement."
Pros: "Decent leg room. New plane."
Cons: "Only one meal was served in about a 6 hour flight. By the end of the flight I was famished."
Cons: "There is nowhere in the airport to go for long layovers. The ticket counter didn't open until closer to the flight, without it I couldn't get inside to the Travelers Lounge, and spent most of my time in the entry area. I also was assigned a middle seat, which is even less fun than usual when you've been in India and your bowels are acting wonky."
Pros: "Everything was good ... we were on time .. no delay so .. perfect !"
Cons: "Food is not up to the standard. They make announcements that there will be snacks like sandwiches and ice creams, but they don't offer that openly. You have to ask for snacks. Now we, US citizens don't like to ask for food just so you know. The crew should offer. if we don't need the food, we can always say no."
Pros: "Everything was quite nice. The TV screens were working for all the seats! Though I did not give my meal preference earlier, they still accommodated my request. Doha airport is quite nice and modern. Crew was helpful."
Cons: "I wish Quatar had a direct flight between Chicago and Indian cities such as Delhi and Mumbai. I can understand that Doha is their hub, but such a flights would be really good for me as I always want to reduce my layovers. (I noticed that most travelers in my Delhi to Doha and Doha to Chicago flights were Indians, hence my request makes sense.)"
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "No bad things"
Pros: "I love the help given by ground crew in KLIA upon arrival. The crew waiting at the exit gate to make my transit quick and easy. The staff took me right to the flight gate, issue me the boarding past without me spending time to locate the transfer counter.. It was hassle free. Bravo! Please keep it up with this excellent service"
Cons: "The vegetarian food, noodle with bamboo shoot was too salty and plain."

At 35000 ft from the ground its pretty darn good. Excellent experience overall and with internet facility you stay connected as well. Not sure what more people are expecting. Unless its teleporting, would be hard doing better than this experince by Emirates.

Entertainment can be improved.

I would love to travel with Emirates in future

Flight was okay. Flight was fully packed and crew service was slow

Food was bed it was Hindu meat and I am vegetarian called earlier to changed to vegetarian food but only changed whole going back to india and coming back give me Hindi food and it was meat so can’t eat, asked crew to give me some fruit or vegetarian food but no one came to help me out brought sand food again Hindu meal and I told her I am vegetarian stayed hungry since I don’t like only bread either with out subji. Also charged me extra at the airport I can’t take a Bavk pack with out lap top and charged ne for that almost $100, that’s not right. Please give me refund my $100. Thanks

Pros: "Great entertainment, great seating and space comfort. Overall a great experience. But, Etihad airways is still better than Emirates."

Pros: "The servoce was as usual very good."
Cons: "Hardly anything to criticise in relatively short journey."
Pros: "Xcellent"
Pros: "ICE Rock solid, at least from SFO-DXB and vice version and its variation in different movies, songs"
Cons: "Food -- Really bad food for me from SFo-DXB. Extra salt and for a person who does not eat rice/desserts poor choice. Is there some other choice for me(vegetarian).

Cons: "My tickets say 1 stop in Dubai. However, I had 2 stop going and coming back. I had a stop at Athens For 90 minuets and then Dubai before I reached to my final destination. Also, going my audio was not working for Newark to Athens and Athens to Dubai. However it was working from Dubai to Ahmedabad. Also coming back they give me very hard time for my Camera bag. Somehow it’s free to fly from USA but you have to pay for the weight of camare coming back."
Pros: "Total service extended was very nice"
Pros: "Services"
Cons: "Departure time ruins the whole night"
Pros: "Very clean. New fixtures nice screen"
Pros: "The flight attendants were fine—not outstanding, but fine. But the representatives, both on the phone and behind the desk, are excellent—willing to go the extra mile to help out their customers."

Pros: "Wine"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Good"
Pros: "The food and entertainment were good and the seats were relatively comfortable. And they provide headphones but..."
Cons: "The crew didn't warn us that they would be collecting the Emirates provided headphones during their final "prepare for landing" check of the cabin... so I was near the end of a movie and sans headphones! WTF? And because the fasten seat belt sign was on in preparation for landing, I couldn't fish through my carry on in the overhead compartment to find the ones I'd brought. Thats SUPER sh*tty to your customers. Just not ok!"

Emirates put us on a new flight, we were waiting in queu for 30 min, and my queu wouldn't move because of one passenger. I asked the person in charge, if it will take another 30 min, I should go to another queu (because the other two queus already finished with lines up longer. ) the guy said nothing. I was next in line and when my turn arrived, I asked for a similar seat or something at the window, he give me an angry look and give me seat 50B on EK121. That is the last seat next to the toilet. I adked him to change and give me somthing else because I have medical condition and easily get nauseau if I sit toward e end, he said, that is it ma'am. I repeated to him my request and medical conditon, he turned his face away and said next person in line! There were at least 50 more passengers booked after me and 50 more seats available, he intentioanlly gave me the seat I asked not to be given just because while standing in line I asked him, why the line up hadnt moved an inch in 30 minutes. This is a very un professional behaviour and unacceptable behaviou. I had never before had such uncomfortabel flight in my life. I had nauseau during the whole flight!"
Pros: "Everything they have offered."
Pros: "Comfortable seats on the 777 compared to the 380. The food was great and the crew was world class."

Pros: "Very Friendly and smiley crew"
Cons: "Boarding announcement and system were unorganized"
Pros: "Great entertainment options, crew is freindly and helpful. Early Check-in was easy, fast and convenient."
Cons: "Leg space, seat cushion needs to be more- it seems claustrophobic, timings for the flight- need some as a day time flight rather then being up all night, going through the channel of air bus to the flight...."
Cons: "It took 90 minutes in the line to check our luggage despite checking in on line. There were lots of Emirates personnel but only few at the counters, others were mingling among the passengers and being useful."

Cons: "The flight was little crowded but over all it was OK the food service was late and meal was delivered one hour late"

Pros: "The plane was nice."
Cons: "6 hours late. No explanation. No apology from any Air Astana employee."
Pros: "Flight was punctual. While the crew did their job, they didn't seem as friendly as usual with Air Astana."
Cons: "The Boeing 757 is a narrow cramped aircraft for such along flight. It would be good to have an aircraft with not so narrow seats, such as the A320 or A321 or B767 on longer routes. No boarding announcement at Almaty - they just opened the door and you had to "know" that it was time to board."
Pros: "I always enjoy travelling on Air Astana. There were not many people on the flight, so the crew treated us like VIPs! Flight was punctual, comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and the plane itself was nice, but the seats were uncomfortable and there was no inflight entertainment."
Cons: "Delay from Almaty to Aktau about 1hr. Other perfact"
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "Price Travel Kit Relatively new aircrafts"

Pros: "Price Travel kit"
Cons: "The flight attendants ignored me every time they serve drinks. Even when I push the button it took them 10 minutes to get there and then they forgot to bring my water. I had to ask again. There were some Kazak people in front of me, it did not even take two minutes to bring their water. I don't understand, I guess staff is afraid of speaking in English. The aircraft was old and not comfortable."
Cons: "Flight delay and can't feedback the problem"
Pros: "Everything was fairly comfortable. Staff was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The entertainment system could have had more options. Announcements do not come through head phones and are not easy to hear."
Pros: "Thank you for having enough legroom for someone taller. Makes life much easier"
Cons: "Weather delays, however nothing anyone can do about that"
Pros: "Punctual, comfortable, good service on-board."
Cons: "Like Astana Airport, the domestic to international transfer at Almaty is also not well signposted and even though it's the same building, requires going outside in the cold and then back inside. Also Almaty Airport is crowded, the toilets are poor and it really needs to be refreshed. Air Astana is a great airline but is really let down by the poor transfers at both Astana and Almaty."
Pros: "Punctual, comfortable."
Cons: "The transfer from international to domestic flights is not well signposted. It's also odd that even though it's the same building, you have to go outside, walk some minutes and then go back inside. At that time of the year it was quite cold outside!"
Pros: "Good legroom."
Cons: "Boeing 757. 1 movie on overhead screen.no power to charge devices"

Pros: "It is very nice"
Pros: "It was a short flight so not much to say. Crew was attentive to passengers and polite."
Cons: "The flight was nearly 5 hours delayed with no explanation why or compensation."
Pros: "Gave us a hot snack sandwich and drink for a short less than 2 hour flight."
Pros: "Hot towel, candy, nice flight attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours. They did not even attempt to text, though they knew the flight would be delayed. When I asked the check in agents about this, they said what can they do? This is a serious lack of taking personal responsibility. What can they do? They work for the company! There are several steps they could take, but they chose to abdicate responsibility instead. Even though I'd been there for several hours and specifically asked for a window seat and been granted a window seat, during boarding, they changed my seat to a middle, which was the icing on the cake. Also, during announcements, the pilot did not even give an apology. This is poor management And I'm disappointed in Air Astana."
Pros: "Decent food. Direct flight. Good plane."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room therefore comfort on the plane. The staff were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "The selection of movies seemed on the whole dated."
Pros: "Good ground handling staff that dealt with my special baggage requests well. Clean new plane. Pre-departure beverages even in economy class."
Cons: "No service offered. No drinks, nothing. Admittedly it was only a 35 minute flight but at least water would have been nice in-flight."
Cons: "No individual screens for movies for an Intl flight. I'd be better to fly Turkish Air instead"
Pros: "Ground crew in Bishkek are consistently excellent."
Cons: "Flight delays and cancelled flights. I've been stuck in Almaty for 2 days waiting on a flight out. Still haven't reached my destination."
Pros: "Schedule. Price."
Cons: "Level of service."
Pros: "Welcome crew"
Cons: "Poor aircraft, very small seats and no entertainment"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, attentive cabin crew, very clean plane!"
Pros: "I enjoyed everything about my experience. We had an on-time departure and smooth arrival into my destination. Boarding was seamless and efficient. The crew were very pleasant and professional. And the meal service and in-flight entertainment were more that I could have asked for. Excellent experience."

The flight was 5 hours late, made us miss our connector to Dallas. No more flights to Dallas until Friday. We were only offered the late flight to Istanbul, hotel overnight in Istanbul. A flight to Houston and we’re are stranded from there. Later, I found a flight to Newark, take a Connector Bus (my costs) to JFK, overnight layover 8 hours, and a flight to Dallas from there. I was refused to change to that flight unless I paid $300, my connector, and any hotel costs if I chose one. Having spent the night before in JFK, I absolutely would need the hotel, it is not safe.

Pros: "i like the food and movie choices."
Cons: "Crew was little bit rude. They didn’t help me to find the spot for my carry on luggage."
Pros: "Crew was excellent, seats were comfy."

Pros: "Service, timing"
Cons: "Didnt love the food ..."
Cons: "Missed Flight: The flight from Istanbul to Athens was posted as delayed. We were a party of eight and arrived for boarding very close to deadline (minus posted delays) At the boarding gate we were met by six other passengers. The gate was vacant and closed. The real problem happened at the Turkish Airlines desk where we were treated with arrogance, disdain and absolutely no compassion. AS a matter of fact some of the Turkish Airlines staff smiled as they imposed an outrageous fine to purchase tickets to the next flight and continuation of our previous booking. We intend to protest the charges and contact thru many forms of media inform as many fellow travellers of the incident and subsequent treatment by Turkish Airlines. Social media is a powerful tool and although the cards were held in their favor the night of 9-21-17 our protest will not end here. We are fourteen wounded travellers that have agreed to use as many forms of social media as possible to get our message out."
Pros: "Liked the movies and entertainment selections."
Cons: "They didn't have a vegan menu. I had requested vegan and called over the phone a month before my flight and they said they understood. Then on the flight I was told they only do vegetarian which was not good enough. After food was passed out to guests the flight crew dissapeared and never came to collect food trays till about 2 hours after and guests were starting to make a mess leaving food trays on the ground and isles. I had already selected my seat prior to boarding which I paid hundreds of dollars for. Then after boarding the flight crew asked me and the gentleman sitting next to me to move our seats to accomodate for another man that wanted to sit next to his wife. Then I was stuck in a middle seat and I paid for an isle seat. I thought this was rediculous. No one offered me a discount or anything! And the man that wanted to sit next to his wife wouldn't let the plane leave till he was sitting next to his wife. What was I supposed to do? Hold up the plane even longer? This was so crazy!! Outrageous!"
Pros: "Purchase value"
Cons: "Economy seats are a bit tight"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled twice within 24 hours before takeoff. All I got was an email saying it was cancelled and a number where no one could help me. I spent over $40 international calls just to reschedule my flight, only to have to take a $80 cab to the airport to have a human help me. Worst customer service and worst experience. I was trying to get home after a natural disaster struck my hometown and Turkish Airlines actually made that experience even worse. At no point did anyone even apologize for cancelling two of my flights without another option until a full week later. I had to pay to fly myself home from Boston because they were so unhelpful. Would never recommend Turkish Airlines to anyone I know whn traveling internationally."

I knew this information based on online reviews, but the airline itself never did anything to offer this, I had to walk around on the airport, for like 2 hours I could not find decent help and some instructions in broken English. I had to pay 25 Euros to get mi visa stamped and walk out of the airport. The Turkish Airlines attendant that set up the free hotel for us, walked us to a shuttle that would drive us to the hotel, but the shuttle driver got lost? or something happened that caused for him to drive around town for more than an hour, speaking on the phone loudly in Turkish and completely ignoring us when we asked questions, This got a little scary since we had no idea what was going on, at some point we were in the middle of a dark residential area, and listening to the driver yell on the phone (god knows what). Luckily a driver came over and guided us to the hotel, but seriously, they should be careful about who they hire for these kind of tasks. (I posted a video on instagram with footage of the guy driving us around in case my family needed to find me)."
Pros: "Most of the staff were friendly and helpful, and the quality of the food was rather impressive for a plane flight. I liked the number of selections that were available per the movies and media based entertainment on the flights."
Cons: "A few of the stewards and stewardesses had a bad attitude; as if they had brought on board some format of negativity. I understand the flights can be long, but there's no need for bad behavior towards customers."
Pros: "On time and the crew very friendly"
Cons: "Boarding was not very well managed. They did not stick to the proper sequence."
Pros: "Food was excellent. Service was awesome."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class no problem. Flight attendants were wonderful and very attentive. Delicious food. Chair laid out comfortably into a bed. Best long flight I've ever taken"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
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: "Service was outstanding!"
Cons: "I have no complaints!"
Pros: "Crew is amazing, as always"
Cons: "Allergic needs were not met"
Pros: "From the first person I met (the man who printed my boarding pass at the counter) to the crew on board each flight, I was very impressed with the people at Turkish Airlines :) Everyone was very pleasant and helpful, and made my trip enjoyable."
Pros: "Overall, it was a pleasant flight with good food and entertainment."
Cons: "The crew was inefficient: delivering coffee one cup at a time and not even offering it to everyone. I had asked a flight attendant for a glass of water and was never brought water until I asked someone else. The check-in personnel and flight attendants seemed to have no knowledge of toddlers traveling with a carseat, so I had to explain to them that he travels with his carseat or he manages to get out of his seatbelt. They made some calls to see if it was fine to bring the carseat onboard and finally gave us the ok, which we were very grateful for. When it was time to board and also to exit the aircraft it was a very slow process...much slower than usual. Most airlines have you boarding 30 minutes prior to your flight, but we were still standing around waiting."
Pros: "Entertainment on long haul flights is top notch. Selection is incredible just bring your own headphones if you wanna be able to hear anything. Food is the best out of any other carrier. I've seriously been to full service restaurants with less tasty and well prepared foods."
Cons: "Seats are hilariously small. I know you're thinking "they're all like that." They're NOTHING like any other airlines. I've flown the following for reference: Lufthansa Air Swiss Delta Air France Air Arabia Saudi Airlines Egypt Air and a couple more I can't think of right now. I'm a very medium sized build and really short (5' 6") and I was so uncomfortable I wanted to (and probably will) cancel my return flight with them. My wife's back is still hurting from that flight. The staff are just plain awful save for 2 flight attendants. Out of 2 flights so far. I was told afterwards that this is commonplace when flying Turkish Airlines. For fairness sake I should mention that both Egypt Air and Saudi Airlines were worse. Whatever money you think you're saving by flying this atrocity you're gonna be spending on fixing your neck and back. Spend the extra and go with Swiss or even Delta. Avoid this rubbish"
Pros: "Food and comfort for the price paid"
Cons: "Need more assistance during boarding in Dhaka/ DAC"

Folks never want to sit readily when others are boarding.

NO BAGAGE AT THE ARRIVAL

Boarding was two-step, checkin then wait then enter the aircraft. Aircraft was very old, seats worn and even ripped. No entertainment. Feed was very basic - a warm sandwich in a plastic wrap… crew was ok, a bit cold and stern but otherwise polite

More meals in flight - one meal is not enough for an 8hr flight

Not the best crew. Extremely annoying with mask wearing. Even when I was eating and drinking they would come up to you to tell you to wear your mask. Extremely annoying.

Cons: "Air France’s apathy towards its customers is shocking. Traveling with three children , our flight was delayed by 3hrs resulting us arriving in Paris after 1AM. With the airport shuttle(CDVAL) to our airport hotel closed, they offered no assistance despite of my request. Simply asked us to take a taxi (when all taxi stands are abandoned at 2AM). Beware if traveling with family."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. Without that tickets we can not claim the bags. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Cons: "2 hours delays from LAX to CDG then additional two hours delay from CDG to CAI, this is disappointing"
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Had to use a shoe horn to get into and out of my seat and I'm not a large guy. But really my harsh criticism comes from the loss of my girlfriends luggage. It was left behind in Paris on our way to Casablanca causing us to waste a day in Casablanca traveling back to the airport the grab the bag the next day. And to add injury to insult her bag was left behind in JFK during our transfer for our flight to Seattle. No big deal right, Delta will deliver the bag to our house the next day, wrong, we were told we have to go to the airport ourselves to get the bag."
Cons: "Boarding (by bus) was a total chaos. I had to stand for about 50 minutes, either on the crowded bus or, after climbing with great difficulty three flights of stairs to a high jet-bridge (I am 76), standing there forever with 200 persons waiting to get access to the plane. Totally unacceptable. They started the boarding process early (50 minutes before departure), but passengers were allowed to actually board the plane at the time it was supposed to take off."
Cons: "Departure time was almost 2 hours late and the communication of the cabin crew regarding this issue was poor. Almost an hour went by without an update."
Pros: "Flight attendant was rude to my non French speaking 12 year old. He ripped his charger out of the USB port and threw it at him."
Cons: "TSA was sketchy and gave a FULL search, part down, etc. I kept asking and the excuse kept changing. Final excuse ridiculous! Flight attendant could have not treated my son as he way he did. I was unaware that the usb cord being inputted during taxiing As was my son. He was horrible to him!!"
Cons: "Really hard to get boarding passes online"
Pros: "Good crew, as usual with Air France."
Cons: "Old plane with very lousy seats for a super expensive business class. Super slow check in and overall process till boarding because of lack of ground staff compared to passenger volumes"
Cons: "There was no entertainment available."
Pros: "The food selection and drinks, given our coach class, were excellent. Nice attention to the passengers."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Service and food was good."
Cons: "Random TSA check was not needed at the end when boarding."
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are a brilliant idea!"
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are the most brilliant idea!"
Cons: "After boarding began there was a backup after the gate en route to the plane. No explanation. The plane left an hour later than scheduled but seemed to arrive close to scheduled time."
Cons: "Baggage check in was stressful"
Cons: "Thanks"
Pros: "Liked the transfer"
Cons: "Entertainment screen did not work; in neighboring seat it could not be switched off when we wanted to sleep; sourly employees everywhere (re-booking counter an exception); food close not being edible and cold; I forgot my watch on when going through security in the Air France terminal; when I started to say "sorry" I was yelled at by the screener who said that she will do the talking; she sent me back through the scanner twice without my watch, then once more with the carry-on and made sure that I went to the end of a very long line to wait for another screening rather than having me just go through the scanner without my watch. Needless to say, there was nothing else suspicious about me once the watch was removed. Eager to exercise her power, the security person did not seem to consider that she slowed down a long line of people waiting to be screened. I should add that I am 73 yrs old grey haired female who has traveled a lot both for pleasure and business during my entire life, often to some difficult places and that I do not argue with or provoke those in power in a situation like this. The yelling and the sending me repeatedly through the scanner, which did not beep once the watch was removed, was beyond anything I had experienced anywhere else. The sending me to the very end of the line seemed outright spiteful. (I did miss the plane connection.)"
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding and friendly and efficient staff. Landed 15min ahead of schedule."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew nice and professional."
Cons: "Landing was not so smooth."
Pros: "Food, service, comfort"
Pros: "The free glass of red wine when the plane finally took off."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. We were told that it was just a half an hour delay by the man that was informing us of the delay and then we were then told by a woman that it was going to be over an hour. We weren’t told any specifics of why the plane was delayed, other than: “ the engineers are looking at the issue now”. We received messages saying that the flight was cancelled but then we were told to ignore that. We were told that we would have an update every 10-15 minutes but by the time we had the next update was 1 hours later, we were told that the plane will depart at 15:50- which we did. But we also sat on the plane for an extra 2 hours or maybe even more (couldn’t bare watching the time at this point) because the man that was supposed to push the plane backwards in order to reverse the plane didn’t turn up so we then had to wait for all of the other planes to take off before we could. Eventually the plane set off at 18:20 and I got in France 19:30-20:00 ish?"
Pros: "Sometimes you get surprised, with this specific flight, we had an excellent young and perfect cabin crew. Thanks, Joon!"
Pros: "The quality of service from the staff and their courtesy. A great asset of the airline."
Cons: "My luggage was left behind - this despite my being lifetme platinum."
Pros: "Plus seat was good. On board crew was nice."
Cons: "Another Air France company, with their motto: We Don't Care. Ground staff was rude, no good food onboard and have to pay for it. Entertainment is your device, but you can't download the app to use it."
Pros: "The airplane have great entertainment system. The cabin crew are very nice."
Pros: "Free snack and drinks. Good service."
Pros: "The crew took care with calm and kindness of a man in deep distress and erratic behavior. Impressive. More generally , the crew showed respect and attention to all passengers. Not frequent."
Pros: "Comfort, food and service are better than average."
Cons: "When stewardess opened overhead locker, something fell on my head."
Pros: "Service was great, flight was on time and I really enjoyed everything"
Cons: "Little turbulence but overall it comes as usual so it was worth the flight"
Pros: "I would like to come on time each trip because I got two late time before with airfrance"
Cons: "Very small seats, space for nothing All the time delays and the horrible things is a lost luggage, even when there is enough time between flights."
Pros: "Nice crew, free snacks"
Cons: "For taller people flying economy sucks . The seats are always to small"
Pros: "Missed connection and it was airport not Delta that was the problem. Not a good way to start a vacation. Rating is for the Paris Airport, not the flight crew or Air France employees. Still sitting in the airport when we should be at our destination."
Cons: "Hundreds of people missed their flights. Delta had us into Paris with an hour and a half to get to connecting flight. Missed flight due to huge delay in passport approval. They seemed completely unprepared."
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"
Cons: "Losing my luggage after checking it at the gate when volunteers were needed."
Pros: "Seat room was better on most economy flights. The food was good and the glass of champagne did not hurt at all. The aircraft flew very smoothly from takeoff to landing."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The food was really poor. The chicken was as dry as it can be. The food taste was poor. I flow 3 weeks ago with KLM and the food was pretty good for flight food. In a French company I expect much more. The entertainment system on the airbus a380 was like an enchant IT system from the past. Very poor reaction time. Very messy and not people oriented at all. Especially after KLM's And Delta experience."
Cons: "Food and coffee were cold. Service on AF is getting worse."
Pros: "I like that they still feed you and provide alcohol for free, even on a 40 min flight (unlike BA)."
Cons: "At one point during the flight I took a video out of my window with my camera, a member of the cabin crew barked at me in French. In bewilderment I asked her in English to repeat herself and she sarcastically repeated what she had said, in French, I asked for her to speak in English (which she had done to me previously on this Paris to London flight) yet again she scolded me in French. I was left absolutely none the wiser and it left a bad taste in my mouth."
Pros: "The crew was very comfortable speaking two languages and friendly. They also had air conditioning! This was great because it was strangely hot in Paris and we were sweating profusely. And our last air france experience we were so hot and it was aweful. Even though it was like an hour and a half flight they still served us sandwiches ,really good."
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Food on AF montreal - paris flight and totally rude stewardesses"
Pros: "No complain about Air France. The service and food are very good. Enjoy it."
Cons: "Our return flight is Milan--CDG--SFO. The transfer time at CDG is 1 hour. The line at CDG is incredibly long. We barely made it. IMPOSSIBLE for tax return. Very bad flight connection experience."
Pros: "I have been Flying Blue platinum for six years in a row. I often wondered why I never got a complimentary upgrade... Well, I can no longer complain: I was very kindly invited to move across that curtain. Of course, in short haul (2-hours+) A321 flights, all seats are created equal, business or main cabin... But the attention was there, excellent service, and gourmet food too. The whole experience was great. I'll go on flying Air France with fewer regrets."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Friendly crew, this is just a shuttle service. Not much to write about"
Cons: "They wouldn't fill my water bottle, gave me two plastic cups instead...."
Pros: "Due to delay in flight of amost 2 hrs, the in flight staff was kind enough to offer drinks and snacks while the passengers were waiting in the plane."
Cons: "Terrible communication by the staff on the cause of delay. Also once we landed in Paris, the ground staff was not aware whether all the luggage has landed or not."
