Luckily we found our itinerary and they allowed us entry."

They were impatient and impolite, unresponsive when I used the steward attendance call for water or to move my child's tray (for over two hours)... there was much I didn't care with this airline, from their customer call service (I filed a complaint) to the state in which my box arrived in Mumbai (again filed a complaint but no one folllowed up with me). I wouldn't recommend this airline to anyone, especially if traveling with a child."

Cons: "They took 4 days to reach my destination and my last destination they could not provide me with a seat so I had to buy it from my own pocket . The luggage came after 5 days with it missing 12 pounds of stuff. Never go on this airline. They don't care about customers especially in istambul and Mumbai. I think I should get full refund for this flight."

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: "crew was great"
Cons: "business seats could be more comfortable"

Pros: "We lost our bags but they find it after 9 hours Very bad experience"
Cons: "Economy the same like business And they need to be more carful with the bags becouse we lost our bags for more then 9 hours"

Cons: "Actually I didn’t fly as I didn’t receive the confirmation email or the ticket and I had to call vayama who informed me that they don’t have any records for my booking although my credit card was authorized for the amount !! I had to do another booking fire test with the airlines due to limited time before departure!"

Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Flight delayed... Tight seats"

Cons: "Chaotic boarding. Rude crew. Cramped seating in n outdated plane."

Pros: "Didn't like anything"

Pros: "Big plane, multiple boarding points. Food did its job & helped with the long flight. Movies weren't expansive, but good choices to kill the time."
Cons: "The crew did not have the key to unlock to doors leading to the plane, which forced everyone to wait 30 mins standing in line. It was quite silly! It delayed our flight about 30-45 minutes - not much, but really painful when the flight is almost 12 hours. The crew didn't tell us what was happening either, but it was pretty obvious."

Cons: "Plane was really old. They desperately need to upgrade their fleet."

Pros: "I really enjoyed when the plane LANDED at my Destination!"
Cons: "1. The plane was hot. In the Middle East they don't turn on the AC whilst on the ground. They only turn it on when in the air?!?! 2. The food was basic! I ordered the Seafood and it had 3 overcooked shrimp and baked fish. Not tasty at all. The bread was hard as a rock! 3. Boarding was like a cattle call!! Kind of like Southwest Airlines! 4. The Takeoff, Cruise and Landing was NOT bad at all! 5. I guess being an American, it was FOOLISH of me to ask for Ginger Ale on this Egyptian Flight!! 6. When I landed in Cairo, it would have been helpful to know that while going through Customs, I would need to purchase a Egypt Entry Visa fee for $25.00, but since I didn't know that, I waited in line for 20 minutes ONLY to have the Customs agent tell me that I had to go purchase one, then get back I line for ANOTHER 20 minutes!!!!!!! UGGHHHHHH!! 7. I flew on an Airbus that didn't have plug in for your phones to charge (maybe that's just a Boeing thing)."

Pros: "I’m sitting at Buisness which I usually do !!!"
Cons: "Wish they renew the cabin knoiwngvthat in even in business but it is so old and food is v avarage also the service is v avarage even they don’t offer you before flight any drinks !!!!!"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Crew not attentive not trying to give the extra service that you pay so much money for. Food options hopeless. No welcome no introduction. Nondrink on arrival. I could’ve sworn that I was in a budget economy section. Old Shaking plane. Other than a business class seat you get nothing."

Pros: "Comfortable flight, good food"
Cons: "Delays in boarding, unorganized, some grumpy staff"

Cons: "Buy it From you by price and checkout by other price more than your price don’t know why are you know that"

Cons: "The flight crew didn’t provide any kind of leadership when the passengers were causing a delay. Then we landed 20 minuets later than schedule, but the pilot failed to recognize the delay, he announced the schedule arrival time rather than the actual time. Then the freaking airport is so bad, that I decided not to come back here anymore. The luggage were delayed for an hour and half and we asked the supervisor he said that’s usually what happened, and we have to wait, he didn’t even care to provide any explanation for why all this unnecessary delay."

Cons: "The same problem I see with Egyptair company, Flight attendants need to learn some manners how to deal with guests, and most importantly LEARN ENGLISH. These are just waitresses brought straight from some Bus company or Train company."

Pros: "Crew was very polite"
Cons: "Checkin was disorganised"

Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Every thing"

Cons: "Middle chairs is very narrow"

Pros: "Kind staff. Very clean."

Pros: "Good space. Reasonably modern plane. Could recharge my phone easily. Good selection of movies."

I arrived Chicago Monday noon. I missed two days of work. Please I need refund for my money $837 My name :Mahmoud Helal 15705 brassie court #2s Orland park Il 60462"

Pros: "This was a return flight from Cairo to Washington. I called the Cairo office multiple times to add a pet to my ticket. I couldn't check in online and when I called to ask they said that's because I'm making changes (pet) that's why I can't do it and I should do it at airport.. I'm Cairo airport the check point is as soon as you get thru the main door.. Waited in line for check in only to find that all 4 tickets (me and 3 kids) were cancelled and that we had to go outside again to the reservation office (had to go thru check point again) to reissue the tickets. They didn't even appologize for their mistake and they blamed the travel agency.. Very unprofessional and irresponsible people."

Cons: "i need a refund. our flight back to NYC from dubai was rescheduled with significant delays such that it would affect our jobs. We decided to book a return flight via qatar and we need a refund for this booking"

"Bag check is not as smooth as can be at CST Terminal 2. Passengers are advised to print out and attach boarding passes at home in a bid to avoid crowding at self-service kiosks given the Covid-19 public health crisis. However attendants then say tags need to be re-printed at the counter as the ones provided by the airline at the airport are more secure. While the check-in process is aided by the helpful staff, Indigo Airlines could do a better job of providing more self-service kiosks and clearer guidance during the online purchase process. Suggest calling ahead to confirm situation on the ground."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "We flew to India and back from Turkey. Both flights had 2 stops and both times Indigo said we didn’t have a second flight and wouldn’t give us a second boarding pass meaning we had to go out to the check in both times to get our second boarding pass and both times were very problematic. Also we have a 7+ hour international flight on a very small plane with no free food or drinks. Just not a very good flight experience overall."

Pros: "First flight from Goa to Mumbai was pretty good, I even scored an extra large seat. Boarding was madly chaotic though"

Pros: "Well managed. The crew always had a smile on them and seems to be very helpful."
Cons: "The crew was requesting to use the toilets at the rear of the plane whereas the one on the front were used by them.

The Indigo management should make sure this issue is being taken care of."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats. Small and hard"

Cons: "Nothing to remark"

Pros: "Everything except boarding"

Pros: "Nice crew, speedy boarding"
Cons: "I checked in 5 hours in advance and they gave me a middle seat without even asking. There were aisle and windows free in the plane"

Pros: "The cabin crew didn’t even ask us for water. We were yelled at by Anoop T working for indigo airlines at Trivandrum airport. He was drunk and unnecessarily charged us for baggage check in when clearly our tickets stated that no extra baggage charges are applicable. The third party through which we booed our flight generated 3 PNRs and Anoop claimed that he will charge us for baggage check in. He was impatient, rude and drunk."

Cons: "My son already mentioned that we are vegetarian people when he booked the ticket. Still during our flight the crew said we don't have veg food, only option is non-veg. When I clearly denied to have a non-veg food and some other people also explained them that most of Indian people food habit and culture, finally the staff ready for give the Veg food to me and my wife. We got the food but it took lots of time and cold, no test as well. Is it really good behaviour to customer?? We are senior citizen, we need water for our medicine, I have to asked 3 times then they give me only one time.. Such a annoying and awful experience during this journey. I won't recommend Kuwait airways to my family and friends. Thank you.."

Pros: "Food was better than I had expected"
Cons: "The flight took forever,1. Supposed to be 21 hours and change ended up being close to 28 hours. Completely unacceptable. No flight between any 2 points should be this long.Unlikely to fly Kuwait airways again. A lot of money to fly business class ended a complete waste"

Pros: "Staff is friendly."
Cons: "Overbooked flights. Too crowded"

Pros: "The plane from Kuwait to Doha was clean and obviously new."
Cons: "Transit handling is awful. Had to wait 2 hours after arriving to drive us to Safir hotel ( I completely paid for accommodation on the 2 trips transit 2 nights ) and then they picked us up 3 hours before our boarding time. So practically we paid for the night and stayed there for 2 hours. Considering that it's an overnight stay, and I am carrying a sleeping kid and an infant and our hand luggage, with no chance to find any help as there is no Kuwait airlines office inside the airport!!!!! Seriously!!! no car to drive us to the hotel ? No one to complain to!!"

Pros: "the service over phone and food in flight were great"
Cons: "their website was down so could never confirm our ticket online. The phone service however was good. due to IT system failure the check in at airport took long time resulting in crazy queue at the JFK airport. Also the flight departed 90 min late"

Cons: "The boarding process is a complete mess, and no one would serve us."

Pros: "Flight from JFK to Kuwait"
Cons: "Flight from Kuwait to JFK is old and the crew sucks!"

Pros: "Low price."
Cons: "Everything about it pretty much."

Cons: "Totally inefficient. Delayed by 1 1/2 hours whilst passengers were scanned at gate despite most passengers being transit passengers. Once on board delayed further whilst plane was restocked!"

Cons: "From kuwait city to JFK, flight halts at Shannon airport. Have to get down fo through security check and board again costing around 3 hrs. More. But this was not listed while booking flight"

Pros: "The flight got delayed by one day so I requested the manager to adjust me for another flight so that I could reach my destination on time and he did. Thank You"
Cons: "When the flight got delayed I received the message just few hours before my flight."

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "They did not communicate that we have an additional layover at Shannon. If they change the itinerary, we should have an option of a full refund"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Nothing works in the plane.. none of the switch works. None of the monitor works, crews god knows how they were even picked for this job. .. Plane had technical problem all through out the journey. It was old plane.. the only thing worked seems the engine and the wheels... The worst is the treatment this plane and it's traveller use to get on airport is more bad.. it won't get clearance. . It has to wait for 30 minutes for its turn. . Irrespective of kuwait, Ireland or jfk.."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "I checked in more than 60 mins before the flight take off time. However my online confirmed reserved window seat was given to someone else. Upon complaint, the ground crew was very rude and told me that if I want to contest it, I have to step out of the flight and miss the flight for that day. I have never had such a rude and fraud like behavior from the ground crew in the past with any other international airlines. Very disappointed by Kuwait as it lost its credibility for me."

Pros: "newer flight Food is better than Air India good crew"
Cons: "toilets are not stocked well"

Pros: "Nothing Specific"
Cons: "inconsistency in the Flight timing"

Pros: "The service and food were great. No issues at all."

Cons: "The flight from Muscat to kuwait was on a very old plane No intertanment and only one meal choice!!"

Pros: "Nothing good"
Cons: "-unexpected/undisclosed stop over in Ireland for 3 hrs -6 hrs delayed -overhead compartments opening during take off -passengers started get off their seats at landing and crew unable to control them -didn't have record of request for vegetarian meal request (ran out) -entertainment system screen didn't work"

Pros: "Nothing it was a terrible"
Cons: "تعطيل مو تاخير هذا ساعة كامله تاخير كنت حاجز طيران داخلي بعد هالرحله و طارت علي بسبتكم اول مره و ان شاء الله اخر مره اطير فيها"

Cons: "My parents are 70+ and they not provide wheel chair at kuwait airport."

Pros: "Pleasent surprises, Unlike previous trips, got boarding pass instantly and seat was much comfortable."
Cons: "No announcements for flight getting delay and flight attendant were not responsive."

Cons: "The staff was not very responsive. Always ran out of supplies such as blankets"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing, everything from the service to the airline was horrible!"
Cons: "The tvs weren't working, the food was horrible and came with dirty utensils. The cloth of the seat was ripping. This was the worst airlines I have ever flown with and will never fly with Kuwait again. The flight attendants did not even make the security or safety announcement."

Pros: "My parents and in-laws travel in 17th from Ahmedabad to NYC. The service was terrible, especially at kuwait no wheel chair was provided they had to stand up walk at the last boarding announcement. Moreover, people from kuwait were preferential treatment in boarding and in flight service. The staff was terrible and didn't care about my parents, multiple request of food, sandwiches or drinks were neglected."
Cons: "My parents and in-laws travel on 17th April 2016 from Ahmedabad to NYC. The service was terrible, especially at kuwait no wheel chair was provided, they had to stand up and walk at the last boarding announcement. Moreover, people from kuwait were given preferential treatment in boarding and in-flight service. The staff was terrible and didn't care about my parents, their multiple request of food, sandwiches or drinks were neglected. I will not fly kuwait and will recommend paying extra bucks to go in Qatar to all my families in states."

Pros: "Because of a 12 hour delay with our Kuwait Airways connection, we were put on another flight with Sri Lankan Airlines. This meant that we arrived in Colombo just a couple of hours after we were supposed to. However, this also meant we had to use an airline that wasn't as nice as Kuwait Airways."
Cons: "The food was average for plane food. The crew were sort of dismissive and seemed to be annoyed with passengers. The plane is old, and you can tell so. The entertainment was so so. Above all, the boarding process at Kuwait airport was absolutely horrendous. The line to enter the gate area stretched for the length of three gates. We stood in this line for about 45 minutes! It was highy disorganized...but not sure if that is the airport's fault or Sri Lankan Airline's fault. We departed late, but ended up making up that time in the air and stil arriving early!"

Pros: "The plane was very nice, new and comfortable. The meal was very good for plane food. The entertainment was great and the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Our connection was delayed by 12 hours! We would miss our reserved train ride if we had to wait for the delayed connection. Luckily, Kuwait Airways worked it out to get us on another flight with a different airline. We were happy with this customer service, but very irritated that a flight would be delayed for so long."

Pros: "Newer Airplane, Nice crew members"
Cons: "food"

Pros: "I reached safe to my destination"
Cons: "Service, seating arrangement, lines to use restroom"

"Take too much time to get cpnnection flight. Did not get enough time toget refresh even for going rest room it is not enough time. For wheelchaor person like me face too much trouble. Idont wish to go next time in emirat and fly dubai. Not sugest any senior citizon to fly with this."

Flight from Dulles to Dubai was excellent but from Dubai to Sialkot totally different. Shame Emirate Airlines having double standards. You serving and respecting people coming from west excellently but terrible for poor people of Pakistan.

Cons: "Unfortunate that my FlyDubai checked in luggage from Skopje to Dubai was not transferred onto my connecting Qantas flight. I will be disappointing if not recovered."

Pros: "relatively clean"
Cons: "I was NOT impressed with this airline. I have never been on a transcontinental flight that did not provide on board entertainment or food. I thought the absence of both was ridiculous. Plus I went to try to read the news option- which was actually free and the papers were from 2014!!!! WTH?!There is no room to put everything- no pouch in the seat ahead of you so nowhere to put the food or drink that you have to bring on board or any of your travel things. I have no idea why. The FlyDubai terminal in Dubai is also quite lacking- I felt like I was trapped in crappy restaurant. I'm not certain that I will ever use use this airline again- not impressed."

Pros: "The pilot did his best to save me time but in vain. Plane was not as contested , more leg room. Good planes."
Cons: "No refreshments. No television."

Cons: "The flight from dubai to Kuwait was on Flydubai NOT Emirates.. in site was Emirates and that make problems to me cuz i hade to to go to terminal 2 for flydubai !!"

Pros: "Seats are comfortable."
Cons: "My in-seat entertainment did not work."

Pros: "a good service"
Cons: "nathing"

Cons: "Must pay for in flight entertainment...screen also did not work even when offered to pay 11 us to watch movies"

Pros: "FlyDubai knows customer service. I would have given 15 stars out of 10 if it let me. I flew economy but was treated like first class. I will only book with FlyDubai for all trips. See you guys next month when I return to Dubai."

Pros: "تعامل موظفين المطار وفلاي دبي. المقاعد جداً سئه مقابل المبالغ المدفوعه خدمات العفش هي اساس الرحله الاختيار لابد ان يكون صحيح"

Pros: "The staff at Dubai were very helpful and efficient at arranging for overnight hotel accommodation and meals at the airlines expense. I suspect they have had a lot of practice with delayed flights!"
Cons: "1. Fly Dubai flight from Kathmandu was 5 hours late in departing, so I missed my connection in Dubai, had to stay overnight and was ultimately 18 hours late in reaching my final destination. 2. Paying for food and drink (even water!) on a 5+ hour international flight is ridiculous. I don't know any other airline that does this. US airlines on domestic flights at least provide soft drinks, water, tea and coffee and the odd snack free. 3. No entertainment. A big minus on such a long flight."

Pros: "The crew were very nice and supportive"
Cons: "At the boarding, I was supposed to have an aisle seat, he gave me a middle seat ticket. I didn't realize that except after I'm on the plane. The crew were supportive and managed to fix this"

Cons: "They failed to alert me that my flight was overbooked and that I would be moved to the next later flight. Need to sort out an sms or email alert system like other modern airlines."

Pros: "Essentially nothing."
Cons: "I am flying since I was 10 years old. I am now 36. I have never flew in an International flight that has a grumpy crew and you have to even buy water ??? Fly Dubai is the worst airline I have ever been, like I said they don't even offer a glass of water on a 4 hour flight. Amazing!!!"
