Pros: "It was spacious for being Economy."

Pros: "Some staff wer helpful"

Cons: "The over all seat pitch was low and seemed very cramped for a long journey. Food was hit or miss. On two different legs of flight we had a good service from Ist to was but below average service from Bon to ist. Connection in ist airport was scary - too many flights arriving at one time, people lining up outside the airport mad literally pushing their way to get in. In today's tunultous time this seemed extremely unsafe as far as airport safety. I would not travel Turkish till they extend/ update ist airport which is supposed to happen in 2 years."

Pros: "There is not a single thing I liked about my travelling with aeroflot"
Cons: "There were countless things I hated about aeroflot 1. Air hostesses have mediocre English speaking skills. I asked where the entertainment console was stowed at, the air hostess stared at me for like 10 min until she finally understood the question. 2. My flight from Moscow to New York got cancelled without any prior notification. They did not answered any calls. I had to go to their booking office to resolve the matter. I would highly suggest not to fly with aeroflot in future."

Pros: "comfortable seats with good leg room"
Cons: "Unexpected delay for initial flight from delhi to moscow and no information provided before reaching the airport."
Cons: "SVO (Moscow) airport was dysfunctional. Two Aeroflot employees told me to stay in terminal E for my flight. I waited in line for one hour (they only had three people checking bags!!!). I get to the counter and I'm told it's from terminal D. Thankfully, my checked bag made it. In sum: ask and confirm with more than two people since Aeroflot employees speak no good Angleski."
Pros: "Seats on this flight were much more comfortable."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for a very long time due to "passenger removal" - ? We did not know quite what that meant, and we were very late arriving in Istanbul."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "They should not expect every white person to speak Russia. They should not get offended when we don't understand and reply in English either! Cold war is over people!"
Cons: "No english speaking staff. No english speaking instructions. No lotion in bathroom. Veg Food was poor. Poor service . No choice of have to drinks such as ginger ale. No pretzels given. air quality was poor in plane"
Cons: "The flight was good overall, but the boarding crew in Moscow (that was after a transit) didn't let me take my guitars up on the airplane, different from what I agreed on at the first flight, where I paid 200 USD to take it with me on the plane. The flight attendant was very nice and agreed to help me and take it on the plane."

Cons: "Very small space, bad food and no entertainment. Some crew are difficult with English."

Pros: "Take off and landing were smooth with no delays."
Cons: "Both on the flight to Delhi from Moscow, and on the return flight there was a problem with the AC on the flight. The front part of Economy was hot and people were sitting and fanning themselves because of the heat. a walk to the back of the plane let me learn that the air there was more bearable, so I spent most of the flight standing in the aisle. Not comfortable at all!!"
Pros: "I could sleep very good."
Cons: "Only the food. I was'nt feeling good, and the only thing i could eat was'nt a littl role"

Definitely more cramped than any other international airline I've flown with. Would have preferred fabric to vinyl on the seats to keep down the sweat (and therefore stink) levels of everyone on board."
Pros: "The ground staff from the help desk was helpful enough"
Cons: "I could have been rebooked a flight without having to pay for it. Who wants to lost his or her passport? It was very inconvenient and stressful for me, at least free rebooking would have ease my situation."

Pros: "Pleasant and efficient crew made a middle of the night flight (01.00 - 05.30) quite bearable! Food good too."
Cons: "Veg Biryani instead of pasta plz"
Pros: "Once we were in the air (see below), everything was very good."

Cons: "Was a good experience"
Pros: "On the 15th. Nov during my flight to India, I have made an online check in though did not receive an e ticket. I arrived the airport 70 min before the flight. The crew on the check in counter refused to issue me a ticket and insisted that I have missed my plane abd I need to purchase a new ticket. They even refused to check if I have made an online chick in. The gulf air online system, did not show me that I have made an online checkin. Unfortunately, the problem was solved by asking someone who work in the airport ( not gulf airlines representative) to check if I have made and online check in and to issue me a ticket to pass through the security control"

Cons: "Boarding, crew, seating, bus gate"
Pros: "Meal options and snacks, good crew staff. And relatively comfortable seating. The plane waited for us because of the earlier delayed flight, though we prefer to have been given the option to stay the night and catch the next morning flight."
Cons: "The flight got delayed from Alexandria and the staff at Manama airport directed us to a counter to get our onward boarding passes but another senior member of staff asked us "what are you doing here" and asked us to go straight to the gate, then when we arrived at Abu Dhabi the baggage did not arrive with us and we had to go back to the airport later to pick them up."

Pros: "The price was excellent, the (A330) plane was in good clean condition, they provided with blankets, pillows and headphones. The food was better than most airlines I have travelled on and the entertainment was okay but not as good I would have wanted. Overall, I would say 4 stars all round."
Cons: "Entertainment could have had more on offer, the plane was generally cold, an on-board wifi on their major (A330) planes would have been helpful and upgrades to their short haul planes would be good too."
Cons: "Food was not so great. Could have been better"
Pros: "Ease of checking, smooth landing, Gold frequent flyer card special preference"
Cons: "The old aircraft which is almost reached its limits"
Cons: "Their price and services"

Pros: "Bording was ok."
Cons: "Too much security checks"
Cons: "The plane is too small I couldn't go to the path room because the floor was busy by the cabin crew because of the food and the drink service also the Bahrain air port is too poor regarding Gulf air agents in Manama, this is my last flight with gulf air and I will not recommend to my friends."
Pros: "I was rerouted entirely to fly with Austrian Air, and only landed 2 hours later than scheduled, which was nice."
Cons: "My Gulf Air flight from Bangkok to Paris was delayed 7 hours which would make me miss my connection to Paris in Bahrain...and they wanted to put me on a new flight that would have me layover in Bahrain for more than 18 hours, and landing in Paris 24 hours later than planned. I politely said no and asked them to find me something else, and they did--so that was good. But the suggested alternative for a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous. Also, the 7 hour delay was never explained and no other flights were delayed, so I guess it was something wrong with the plane?"
Pros: "More movies And good food Pls have working charges of iPhone on Bahrain airport"
Pros: "Nice crew and good service"
Pros: "The air hostess"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Food is always a plus (especially compared to the US flights, where hardly anything but a salty snack and a drink are included with the flight)."

Pros: "Good food and entertainment"
Cons: "Crew could be nicer Crammed seats Late"
Pros: "being on time"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment console was standard with decent movies. The hotel and food voucher for flight delay was nice but was only received AFTER fighting with customer service for over 3 hours on the phone using international calling. Terrible terrible."
Cons: "Firsr leg of flight was delayed (mnl to bah) then luggage was lost when we arrived in Paris. Food on the plane was mediocre. Service was poor. I kept having to request water because only a small glass of water was made available at meal service, and typically most airlines on international.flights offer water consistently throughout the flight. Flight attendants all but disappeared in between services. Coffee was also terrible borderline undrinkable. When luggage was lost no offer was provided for a solution - voucher, per diem, etc. We were coming from a warm climate and had to exist for two days layering warm weather clothes. Luckily we had our coats in our carryon. But both travelers became sick during our trip."
Pros: "Being able to watch new releases. The food was good."
Cons: "Times we ate took too long. We were on a 10+ hour flights and it would've been better if we ate more. No leg room in your Isle, you must become a stick and not move, become one with the plane. In Bahrain they force us to cancel our flight and charged us extra 600+ USD to move the flight to the next day. Even though I paid for insurance, then I had to pay an extra 20BD for my wife to leave the island, and it took 2 hours to tell us we owe 20BD... Bahrain is a place I would not like to return."
Pros: "My flight was very relaxing. it was a shorter flight than displayed on the website which was a plus."
Cons: "The only hiccup was the 30min delay before borading"
Cons: "We were in row 42 and there were at least 15 rows behind us, and they ran out of chicken option in food."

Pros: "The ticket was not expensive, the carry on luggage allowance is 7kgs and 5kgs for a laptop etc with 23kgs check-in"

Cons: "I did not print my tickets at home, decided to print it at aeroport , and I was charged for printing boarding pass for $17.34 for each!!!!! Never heard or experienced something like this ever with any flight companies.. I did not get any notifications about these charges, otherwice would print my board passes ar home. Then in the back of aircraft, I saw how the personell was filling up the juice bottles from one to another!!! Food was very poor. Some movies were just in French or Italian languages without subtitles. Poor choises. I will never fly Or recommend anybody to fly with them"
Pros: "Ukrainian International Airline charged me 475 UAH for boarding pass. No communication, no warning. Very unhappy with Ukrainian International Airline for doing deservice to their customers"
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "I went to desk for check in and they told me l have to pay 15 euro because that l didn’t check in on line before l get to the airport. They wouldn’t check and give me boarding pass till l paid 15 euro. Horrible airline. After that they wanted to charge us for food and drinks on a international flight. Never again !!!!"
Pros: "Northing good about this airline!"
Cons: "too short to judge"
Pros: "The UIA crews were very kind and attentive, responding to passengers in a matter of time :-)"
Cons: "Nor meals niether snacks of any kind, it was understandable due to extra expenses and economical issues the Airline faces. But I am sinserely appreciated UIA, its kind crews as well as Airport Boryspil Airport. Wish them all the best and success! I hope see you all on board soon :-)"

Cons: "The crew the plane etc."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "I was booking a regular flight however, i was charged extra 50€ for one peice"
Pros: "The flight arriving in Kiev"
Cons: "A few of the crew members were rude; the Jewish passengers were permitted to clog up the isles and not respect passengers as the were content in their prayer rituals on the plane!!"
Cons: "Very hot and stuffy Crazy cramped seats"
Pros: "I requested little late (on my second flight from Kiev to JFK) a wheelchair assistance as a senior citizen. Crew did their best and they could accommodate my request for the rest of the flight, I appreciate that, thank you!"
Cons: "Accidentally, I left my main suitcase unlocked (but of course it was well zipped). Upon my arrival, at home in US, I found almost half of my gifts and items I had prepared for friends missing / stolen! Although I cannot prove and blame anyone personally for that this has never happened to me with any other company. I have enough ground to suspect this was done at Kiev Airport during the baggage loading and processing. What a shame ..."
Pros: "I didn't get the food as ordered. The worst thing is it was soggy. This probably was the worst flight I ever took in my life."
Cons: "They dont even have a plug that we can charge our phones .Also they dont have a tv .It was a long trip so i must sleep because there was no other option."

Cons: "Food options were pretty much non-existent."
Pros: "They compensated our wait with a sandwich and a drink."
Cons: "We boarded the plane to find out there were some technical problems. We then deplaned and waited several hours for a new plane. Little information was given to the passengers in languages other than Ukrainian. Re-boarding was not announced, it just happened. Seats were very uncomfortable and too close together."
Pros: "Price was ok"
Cons: "Our ticket was booked with checked in luggage going to our destination but no checked luggage on return. This was not mentioned when we were booking or we would have gone with a more expensive airline. It turned out costing the same by the time we added in the luggage. Food is offered but you must pay."
Cons: "Flight Kiev Baku late 3 hours nobody came to inform us. Asymmetric luggage - payed one way only. Angry faces."
Pros: "The second flight (operated by both Ukraine and Turkish was good."
Cons: "nothing really."
Pros: "The crew was okay"
Cons: "In the check in the attendant humiliated me in front of all passengers. This is because he was not willing to allow me to go with hand luggage because the weight was 7.4 kg and not 7 kg. When I tried to moved stuff to the computer bag he refused."
Pros: "How the plane was boarded in the drizzly weather.Organized when loading people on the transport buses. Bag check was organized and extremely courteous. A service that I have not seen in the United States in years. Care was given to safety when the plane was boarded. Very well organized operation there in Dnipro for UIA. Fantastic team you have there."

Pros: "Nothing everything bad, checkin girl fighting with the customers, boarding staff very bad"

Pros: "Easy to find gate. Many places to eat or relax between flights."
Cons: "Older plane so seats did recline slightly but no pillow, no screens, very difficult to sleep comfortably. They announced at 8 p.m the flight would be delayed until 10. While waiting for our dinner order in a resturant near the gate we saw on a screen that the plane was boarding and it was only 9 p.m. On board they served big sandwhichs and right after that came offering a hot meal. In the morning they ran out of egg meals and served something that appeared to be old."
Pros: "Short flight, no hassle boarding."
Cons: "Going throuh more security for connecting flight."
Cons: "My seat had no windows, and it wasn't big enough for tall passengers like me. No food was served on the flight"
