Pros: "Ambiance"

Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."

Pros: "Older plane Older entertainment system"

Pros: "All the services plus the entire team"

Pros: "Food service was good"
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving LAX and was about an hour late to arrive at Doha. Fortunately, despite the 45 minute window for connection, I managed to get my connecting flight to Islamabad thanks to good support from ground staff in Doha"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Preboarding area had no bathrooms. Boarding process was erratic with conflicting calls for zones. Discomfort with people bumping you as they walked down the aisle..toilets unkempt. Exit row USB port misaligned with seating area, so my USB cable bent and broke."

Cons: "Only thing is security was too tight at Doha Airport"

Pros: "Staff were professional, food was good and seats were comfortable."

Pros: "Staff is always friendly and helpful, easy to communicate with Great movie options The 13.5 hr plane had very few passengers so I was given an entire row of 3 seats to myself Food is generally good -- Haagen-Dazs ice cream was a plus!"

Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."

Cons: "My 18 year old daughter (turned 18 on December 20, 2016) was singled out, searched extensively bodily and her bag, for no reason what-so-ever. It was a traumatizing experience for her... needless to say, nothing was found and no explanation was given. The seats recline too far back so that the person behind cannot enjoy what they are watching. The crew has to keep asking the passengers in front to pull their chairs up slightly."

Pros: "Due to the multiple booking mess, I got a middle seat in a 14 hour long leg as all all isle seats were taken. I requested an isle seat due to health issue but no help. The flight was 1.15 hour late and made me lose my connection at Chicago.Never flying Qatar again."

Pros: "They only served us food once in a 14 hour flight from Doha to Washington DC. We were starving the entire trip. Very poor service and food quality too."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and everything else was very good and comfortable on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was odd. We got to the gate too early (by maybe 10 mins before boarding time) so we were told to sit outside of the designated seating area and that they would make an announcement when we should go back up there. There was never an announcement, but we felt it was getting late so we went to check at the desk and they then said we were late and they were waiting on us. They were very nice about everything, but just thought that was really strange."

Cons: "Headrests on quatar airways are uncomfortable , especially for someone who is short and neck gets very stiff"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The codt of the ticket has been deducted twice from my account. So I paid double of the price. Please thankfully correct this mistake to continue using your services. Regards"

Pros: "Food, service and hospitality all top class. They made my long trip home a breeze!"

Pros: "Again, the flight attendants were so sweet and nice and hospitable."
Cons: "The sitting quarters were so cramped. Maybe next time I'll save an additional $500 to go up a class but it was so smashed. It did not leave room for me to use the desk to eat or use my laptop."

Pros: "airline service"
Cons: "n.a"

Pros: "The plan really comfortable evreything was great"

Cons: "I bought a ticket from Paris to Tokyo. The one they sold me was with connection in Doha. The time between connections is minimum!! Furthermore, both flights, when we went and when we returned, had more than 30 minutes delay. So in the first one, I almost missed the connection, having to run all across Doha airport, arriving totally sweat to the plane. Furthermore, I have to take care of my back as I have two cervical herniated disks, so I have forbidden to run, but I had no choice so now I'm suffering a lot of pain and started to take my meds again. really an awful experience!"

Cons: "The touch screen did not work properly"

Pros: "The seats were so comfortable"

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

Pros: "Information sharing by pilots and crew. Economy class leg room is good."
Cons: "All good up to the level"

Pros: "Crew good and seat OK but not exceptional for business class"
Cons: "Food was average - main course could have been better. Range of movies ok but not great"

Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The time between flights."

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

Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"

Cons: "Flight got delayed 30 minutes"

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

Cons: "Cabin was crowded. Leg room was scarce, short seating space. Almost no room for sleeping if you're not a frequent economy traveler."

Cons: "No reading light in my seat..."

Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."

Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight. KLM #605 from Amsterdam to SFO---please pass the praise to all of them."

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable, food was excellent, the staff was very nice, cabin was quite and roomy."
Cons: "No outlets to charge digital devices, and need more bathrooms on board. I was able to sleep most of the 11 hour flight so I did not take advantage of the entertainment."

Pros: "Great on board service from a very professional crew."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."

Cons: "Flight departing late."

Pros: "Flight crew was fine. Food was good."
Cons: "Checking in was extensive for unaccompanied minor. But gate crew was very unnattentuve and though we showed up as first in line, they did not focus, and kept saying to wait. Ultimately our son was last person on the plane."

Cons: "Delayed!"

Cons: "Missing wheel chairs swrvice lounge far away no food option just lame klm tipique"

Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"

Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."

The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."

Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"

Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."

Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"

Cons: "Skinniest seat ever. Couldn't even lean back. I now have hunchback."

Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"

Cons: "Delay again... seems to be pretty frequent on KLM flights at least on the ones I flew with in the past 4 years... this time it was 3hours wait due to a technical issue... no alternative flight option and we ended up getting a very old plane as a replacement. In addition people at info terminals are disorganized and not kind at all.."
