The plane wasn't too full and so I scooted over to the isle seat next to mine but again the resolution on the screen was so bad I couldn't read the intro comments to the movie, etc. They desperately need to update the entertainment system on that plane."

The flight or them was last minute (booked less than 8 hours before take off) so there were no pre-planned kids meals etc. The in cabin team were awesome! They made sure they go a choice of meals, that they had things to do, that they were enjoying the flights. This on top of the usual awesome that they have."

Cons: "I asked to be placed in a seat as close to the front as possible as I suffer from motion sickness in the back of the plane. I was placed in the back row all the way to my destination and all the way home. I vomited 8 times and felt very sick. I did notice that there were many seats available in the front of the plane but they are never given out as women with babies and children always get them and then single travellers like myself are made sit in the back. I travel a lot, I usually fly Qantas and they are very good at providing seats closer to the front. I will be reluctant to fly Singapore Airlines again due to the fact that they were not accommodating at all."
Pros: "My luggage was lost, due to an error of another airline. but singapore air took care of it and made sure i got the luggage in Germany - even though it involved bringing it to me to remote location 2.5 hour drive from frankfurt. free of charge. Thanks Singapore airlines!"

Pros: "Crew was helpful. Leg room is good. Overall the flight was good."

Pros: "Friendly quality staff, good aircraft."
Cons: "The flight crew and gate crew were the rudest I have seen in my entire life. They acted as if they were too good to acknowledge passengers and ignored the flight attendant light and other efforts to get their attention to ask a question."

Pros: "The food was nice and the crew were friendly."
Cons: "My screen didn't work properly and only after asking about it 4+ times were we moved to other seats. Unfortunately the new seats were double middle seats for my husband and I who left window and aisle seats respectively. Please fix your entertainment, Emirates."
Pros: "Everything was nice.."
Cons: "None..."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Comfortable."
Pros: "The entertainment system. Easy to use and huge variety."
Cons: "The crew seemed very immature. They were more interested in gossiping about their social life and seemed to consider the job as secondary to why they were there."
Pros: "Emirates airlines serves quality service on everything from passenger accessories to food. Classy airlines."
Cons: "Only downside of this trip is the long non stop to Dubai. 15 Hours!"
Pros: "Information from the captain"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The service, food and flight entertainment was great."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"
Pros: "The flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."
Cons: "Overall business class was great, however I didn’t like the placement of the remote at my left shoulder. I hit rabdom buttons a few times and it changed the channels and I would have to re-search for the movie I was watching. Everything else was absolutely perfect."
Pros: "Ease of checkin"
Cons: "Delayed take off Delayed baggage retrieval’s"
Pros: "This was operated by Qantas. Nice movie/music setup. Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food plentiful but meat was tough and pretty instututional in taste. Couldn’t eat but half of any meal"
Pros: "Nice airplane, good entertainment, good food, ontime service, pleasant cabin crew"
Pros: "EVERYTHING"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Safety video was cool. Even in Arabic! The amenities were lovely — headphones, entertainment choices, bag with toothbrush, slippersox, etc. They elevated economy well above (the usual) steerage."
Cons: "Not having options beyond the menu; it wasn't clear where to ask for a vegetarian meal. The battle of carry-on v. coat storage is unseemly."
Pros: "Very clean. New fixtures nice screen"
Pros: "Decent food, real utensils, free wine, excellent entertainment system, free limited wifi. Try finding that on a budget airline"
Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Emirates should have contacted me about my missing bag which they didn't contact me yet. Not sure where my bag is as of now"

Cons: "Boarding of gate A20 location in Dubai"
Pros: "They were on time and excellent service all the way. It couldn't have been better."
Pros: "The plane. The thoughtfulness of the crew. My seat's location. I was lucky to be in the front center! The flight information display. Flying at night across the Tasman Sea it was as though we were stationary (apart from a little vibration as we crossed the Southern Alps). Besides, the Air Bus is so quiet (comparatively). Oh yes. One other thing: the fare."
Cons: "We are vegetarians (not vegan). I wasn't keen on the chicken/fish option. But I didn't complain."
Cons: "Bumpy landing"
Cons: "Headphone was taken by crew the moment plane landed."
Cons: "I had a middle seat on this flight and felt very cramped- by the end of the flight my legs were getting cramps and were twitchy. The boarding process was chaos- everyone gathered around the boarding area and it was impossible to board when the zone was called due to all the people in the way. Also, the food for breakfast was good but nothing great- the dinner on the previous flight was much more appetizing. Having said all that, flying Emirates was still a very pleasant experience."
Pros: "Everything was excellent. Emirates is a quality airway."
Pros: "Really comfortable, good service."
Pros: "F"
Pros: "The economy was just as well served as Business Class. There were 22 different countries represented in the crew on the flight. We were served a hot meal and a cocktail. Also, had more leg room than normal. Very efficient boarding system, as well."
Cons: "There wasn't anything about the flight to and from Sydney to New Zealand we didn't like."
Pros: "I requested a blanket for my Son and was told there was none available....."
Cons: "On disembarking I notice a various overhead compartments with bags full of blankets. Why was a deny a simple Blanket? This is unacceptable in an airline that praises itself to be one with the best customer services.......Bad, really bad...."
Pros: "The food was great. Flight attendants were nice and polite."
Cons: "Flight 123 Dubai-Istanbul was cancelled due to weather conditions in Istanbul. 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: "Entertainment selection and legroom were good Entertainment selection included recent movies in various languages and premium TV shows."
Cons: "Legroom in economy was good; however, seat width wasn't. You rub elbows with your neighbors while eating. Asian vegetarian meals were nauseatingly spicy - not the "hot" spicy type, but the cinnamon/cardamom overuse type. Most crew members gave a cold shoulder to passengers."
Pros: "Flight leg space and inflight crew are good"
Cons: "Emirates Check in Person at Orlando International Airport is Rude and RACIST"
Pros: "Emirates is always excellent however the crew were not very engaging"
Pros: "Fantastic service all around"
Cons: "Seat could have a more comfortable bottom and IFE was a bit dated"
Pros: "seats reclined nice, movie selection great"
Cons: "i didn't care for the manner in which you are charged for baggage fees"
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty. Didn't get the Muslim meals that I ordered."
Pros: "Everything was Great !!"
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: "Sits are very comfortable and the food is amazing."
Cons: "The door from the US plane was closed in front of our nose and the staff was extremely rude.In Boston the Turkish Airlines representative from the luggage transfers didn't have a clue what he's doing. It was a complete disaster. So, the 1:10hrs between Cluj and Istambul is not enough for an US flight. You guys must schedule more time so people can get to the US plane on time. The Airline is amazing, good food, good crew, great sits, but please work on this schedule because it's so exhausting to stay an additional 11 hours on the road."
Cons: "My bag was lost"
Pros: "On time, friendly, good food"
Pros: "Crew and flight itself was great."
Cons: "As expected, the plane and seats were okay (borderline mediocre). The food wasn't enough and the choices (rather the lack of) were poor. The seats could be better and not particularly comfortable for a long haul flight."
Pros: "Professional nice food"
Cons: "Trip delay"
Pros: "Entertainment options good"
Pros: "Food and service is excellent. Istanbul lounge is great."
Cons: "Delayed in both directions. Happens. But zero announcements. Zero. Staff didn't know what was going on. Complete chaos."
Pros: "Largely pain free experience"
Pros: "The crew was really friendly and responsive. Boarding was easy and hassle free because Business class passengers had to go through a seperate gate to board."
Cons: "The food was OK, especially the appetizer as it was all cheese and since I dont like cheese, I rate it poor. The inflight entertainment was good but there was a lack of choices in music and tv shows."
Pros: "Food"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Inflight service was good."
Cons: "Seat was a little uncomfy"
Pros: "Plane clean, newish. Went up, took us there, landed."
Cons: "The food - I always have a v-meal - is sadly inadequate. Not enough of it, and very unimaginative. And they always supply the same thing, unless I was just unlucky to have the same thing three times in a row. The entertainment system kept dropping playback, (crashing) so I would have to restart playing the video. Something similar happened on another Turkish flight."
Cons: "Totally desorganized boarding, wrong door on ticket, no priority line....just not the way you expect things done by Turkish Airlines"
Pros: "Nothing Really Nothing"
Cons: "1. Flight late from Berlin to Istanbul. 2. That's mean missing my next flight from Istanbul to Riyadh. 3. I add extra baggage in TKL Airport : my original bag is 23 kg I have until 32kg, The extra baggage was 20kg, So I pay 247 Euro each extra kg 19 Euro. 4. In Istanbul airport they said your next flight tomorrow at 20pm. 5. I have important meeting in morning and my jop in the evening. 6. They changed my teket from turkish airline to Saudi airline 4.00pm, That's mean no different. 7. I ask about my baggage in turkish airline deck they said don't worry every thing will be okay. 8. I ask for hotel they said you have to make visa cost 60 dollars and you know I have to pay taxi and Chang money... Pla Pla, Actually this is not respecting and very bad organization. 9. I didn't make visa and stay from that time until 3.pm in primum lungs. 10. I went to Saudi airline deck to take my boarding. 11. They said you have extra baggage, I explain them that I payed already to turkish airline. 12. They said you have to go back to turkish airline deck about this extra kg's. 13. I did going back to them they said we cannot do anything, leave one bag here and we send the other one later. Actually this stupid airline and this stupid employee's dealing with me like a stupid, all my time I walk every where in that stupid airport, they just gives me orders and I have to follow like it was my mistake. 14. I showed my alfursan membership to Saudi airline deck and they helped me. 15. When I arrived to Riyadh my baggage wasn't there, this is mean that this stupid turkish people that the have to work on barbcue and haircut, but airports jop needs professional people. That's was my first and last flight with them."

Pros: "Comfortable, on time and as always good service from Turkish Airlines"
Pros: "E"
Cons: "The food was a far miss to my other flight from BBK to Istanbul . I know it was a different flight also being a bit tired after other flight did not help . Otherwise the were excellent ."
Pros: "No complaints about the plane, staff etc and its probably no worse than any other airline"
Cons: "Long overnight flight in Economy Class, little legroom. As I am larger than average and find it hard to sleep on flights, the cramped conditions were extremely uncomfortable"
Cons: "The worst airline I have ever flown with, worst disruption management"
Pros: "There is simply nothing to like. Whilst other airlines give peoooe a nice hotel room to spend the night on their trunk flights, Turkish airlines offers."
Cons: "I didn’t like anything not least the fact you make people wait in the station when they are on flights with stops. It Morocco offers a plush hotel room. I’m never travelling"
Pros: "Well looked after from start to finish!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "They made us wait for 2 hours out in the open on a winter night. They wouldn't let us in the terminal. It was outrageous. Everyone was extremely rude."
Pros: "Another excellent business class service from the team at Turkish Airlines. The food offering was high quality, and the little cultural influences made it an enjoyable experience."
Cons: "The cabin design is perhaps looking a little dated and tired compared to some of its business class competitors. This was also true of comparing the 3 flights I had on a Boing 777 model versus one of the short haul legs on a more modern Airbus."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "At gate sign advertised their lie flat beds in business.. we were on business. No lie flat beds!"

Pros: "Generally better than other European airlines particularly BA and better priced"

Pros: "All is good"
Pros: "Facilities are really nice"

Pros: "The crew were accommodating, we departed on time, the inflight food was good and the entertaiment was varied."
Cons: "The leg room was a bit limited on long flight."
Pros: "Business class cabin in the 777 was really spacious. Flight wasn’t full so I also had two seats to myself. Onboard chef was a beautiful touch and food was also delicious. Seats comfortable and IFE good."
Cons: "Heathrow T2 Business class checkin wasn’t clearly signed from entrance. If someone was next to me I would not have enjoyed not having aisle access. Water should be served more regularly without having to ask."
Pros: "Large screens, reusable dishes + silverware"
Cons: "Plane was old, felt more squished and the seats did not decline. Also very note."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "Long waits, poor communication, either too warm or too cold"
Pros: "I am a disabled passenger. Turkish look after me well."
Cons: "No complaints. Good service"
Pros: "Entertaiment was good with choices on the latest movies and live sports channels. Boarding was fast enough and the crew are friendly."
Cons: "The seats are not able to be lowered and for a 11.5hrs flight, thats really painful. Food wasnt really tasty and portion seems smaller compare to other flights i had been on."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I liked the overall plane journey."
Cons: "Flight was delayed which caused us to miss our connection flight."
Pros: "Everything was well taken care of."
Cons: "When boarding the flight from Turkey, to Mumbai , we had to climb up the ladder with our hand luggage.Being senior citizen and traveling in Busniss class was very hard for us."
Pros: "Everything went well apart from my suitcase been lost on the connecting flights to Ercan."
Cons: "Eight hours waiting for a connecting flight at Istanbul airport."
Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."
Cons: "Not enough movie varities."
Cons: "They didn't have my special meal"
Pros: "Good comfort, staff friendly and smiling. Passport control, security and boarding were straightforward."
Cons: "No boarding pass available online in advance for flights from Nicosia (neither electronic nor printed). Only to be collected at the airport. As a result , although I had no hold luggage (only cabin bag), I had to queue at the check-in/drop-baggage desk to obtain my boarding pass! This is the old prehistoric system dating back to the last century."
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Ordered veggie meal didn't turn up!"
Pros: "Crew and efficiency"
Cons: "Too hot in the plain"
Pros: "Food okay"
Cons: "TV/Movie/music were not working. The temperature in the plane was very hot throughout flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"
Pros: "Extras provided - eye mark, socks etc"
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. My husband and I were moved to a middle aisle (although we really didn't want to share) only to find that the foot rest at my foot rest was also faulty. It was an uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was good and the flight attendants were very nice. They offered us small sandwiches and drinks during the flight so it was comfortable to fly with them."
Cons: "You need to buy a visa if you want to enter the country and they only accept USD, Euros or GBP. The only currency exchange is on the other side of passport control so you have to use one of the ATMs and they only give you $100. The staff is unprofessional and seems clueless when you ask them for help. The kiosks are a nightmare and working with them is worse than working with the people. They freeze, and glitch and many of them just flat out don't work. Probably one of the worst airports I've ever been to."

Water only

All is well

Cons: "Airline food could always be better. It wasn’t bad though."
Cons: "They lost 2 pieces of luggage in Munich. We are only here on 3 day vacay and will not have our bags until same time tomorrow."

Cons: "Can always do without delays"
Cons: "Light was delayed 3 hours. I had to wait 9 hours for a next plane to my final destination"
Cons: "Flight delay for 4 hours due to airline maintenance. Missed connection. They also messed up frequent flyer credit and very leather support in Frankfurt for connection. 2 agents only for plane all of people with missed connection. Lame meal allowance."
Cons: "Poor customer support and no response on phone calls when u tried to cancel my return ticket."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on-time. Flight attendents were pleasant and helpful. Food portions and choices were good, and Lufthansa is always generous with drinks. Good value for money on Lufthansa."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, as clear instructions were not given about which group was boarding when and where to line up. Also Lufthansa did not do a good job managing carry-on bags, so that it took way too long to load people and many bags were left over once overhead bins were full. Seating area is cramped in economy."
Pros: "The flight was 1.5 hours late that almost caused us to miss our connecting flight to Tel Aviv. The service and plane was just OK."

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "UAL sucks, as expected."
Cons: "Good was average to bad"
Pros: "on time, great cabin crew"

Cons: "Can’t think of a thing."
Pros: "Bad"
Cons: "Because the one came in from London Got Delay And I miss my flight"

Pros: "The trip was fast"
Pros: "No delay and the landing is smooth"

Pros: "Crew was courteous and available.The aircraft was new and clean."
Pros: "Flight went well."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport is large and complex. Takes some effort to negotiate from one flight to another."
Cons: "Boarding mix up, which was completely Lufthansa's responsibility, delayed my flight to Istanbul for one hour which caused my missing my connection with another airline. This in turn cost me the original flight and a new ticket purchase of at an exorbent price."
Cons: "The leg room was awful. I felt like a packed sardine."
Pros: "Boarding was fast Crew was polite"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board!!!!!!"
Pros: "More leg room than the A330-300 we took to fly from Charlotte to Munich."
Cons: "The ground crew. One young employee checking the boarding passes in Munich was rude and condescending."
Cons: "Food was pretty bad"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "If you can afford to fly business class, it is definitely worth the extra money. The flight, the crew, the comfort we're superb!"
Pros: "I would like to commend the crew on this flight for the way they handled a medical emergency during the flight. I thought that the brew reacted and handled this emergency in a calm, professional and dignified manner. Very little information was conveyed to the passengers aside from what was necessary. I thought that was very dignified and respectful of the circumstance. The flight was diverted from Munich to Vienna, the affected individual was evacuated and the flight was back in the air shortly thereafter. I would like to say Very Well Done to the crew and airline for the training they received and handled the situation."
Cons: "Systems were down. And it was chaos getting the boarding passes. Nothing was communicated to us until over an hour waiting in line. My daughter was miserable waiting as everyone passed by us, bumping into her and not apologizing."
Pros: "I like Lufthansa. We were treated very well."
Pros: "La tripulación muy amable y la comida muy buena ."
Pros: "An extremely professional, attentive staff and flight crew"
Cons: "Because of a family illness I had to reschedule my flight 2 weeks before. Because the flight was booked through a secondary company, rebooking the outgoing flight ended upp: a) costing me as much as the whole original return flight; b) was no longer a 1 stop flight as I also had to stop in Frankfurt plus the company would not allow me to choose directly, I sent them details and then they booked what they could find; and c) I lost both the outgoing flight ( which was charged) and the return flight ( which was not changed) premium seat bookings both of which I had to pay for a second time. If I had booked directly with the airline this would have cost a transfer fee and I would not have lost the premium seat bookings. This was therefore a great expense and inconvenience. I will no longer book flights indirectly when using kayak. In future I will search using google flights and then go straight to the airline sites to book. Very disappointed. I never had this problem when booking with kayak before"
Cons: "Small plain and food was very bad"
Pros: "The entertainment system had many 1st run films, my 8 hour flight was filled with great movies"

Pros: "Entertainment and food were not bad."
Cons: "The plane was an old aircraft, crew could have behaved more kind, and the plane’s seats need to be replaced they felt like sitting on cardboard."
Cons: "I have loads of complaints about the entire crew and etihad airlines and I will file my official complaint against them. The space here isn’t enough to write my complain"
Pros: "Crew was super friendly and helpful. Had good seats, we were able to change them at bag drop. Smooth flight and good entertainment and food"
Pros: "Check-in was easy and smooth."
Cons: "Agents at check-in desk took longer time to process passengers, even though some desks had two people helping. The web check-in line moved slower than the line with passengers who had not done online check-in. When I booked my flight via kayak, I was not given an option to select seats (this was new) . I was able to indicate my seat preference but there was no followup. When I checked in online 24 hours before my flight, the only option for seats was in the middle, which I did not want, although I I knew the flight would not be full. I was able to change seats when I checked in with the agent in the airport ."

Pros: "Etithad was amazing gorgeous happy staff, plane was comfortable and food outstanding"

Cons: "I was given a baggage tag without any explanations on what that even means. It would have helped knowing I should keep it safe in case my luggage is misplaced or lost by Etihad- which is was! The seats are not that comfortable and I needed to stand a lot. Bathroom kept running out of soap and needed to wait long for staff to replace. Entertainment system was hard to use due to the person in front of me leaning their chair back the whole time so the screen was in my face."

However, near the end of my flight I went to the bathroom and noticed there were MANY open seats with more than a handful of people that had a whole row to themselves. I wonder where she got her information because what she shared with me was totally false and I am totally appaled. very old on flight - dress warm!"

It was said that the exchange ticket did not reflect in the system for Jetblue and that I will have to call their call center and figure out the issue.
