Cons: "Emirates has great service and food. Highly recommend if you can handle a Dubai layover"

Pros: "For the most part it really was a most excellent flight, especially the Dubai to SF leg where there were SO MANY CHILDREN around [should get a free upgrade just for surviving that] but the flight crew did exceptionally well and remained calm all the way through. Apart from one grumpyish woman on the second flight the majority of crew were exceptional and really went out of their way to serve and help."
Cons: "I slashed my finger fairly painfully on a toilet door while pushing it from the outside to open it on the Dubai to Cape Town flight [again, an upgrade on my home flight which is a bucket list dream would more than make up for that!] which i pointed out to a flight attendant and they took note of it and bandaged me up so it was dealt with well but hopefully that gets sorted out [she said she would write a report] cos it did unfortunately affect the rest of my flight a little... And so many crying babies [thankful for volume control on headphones] but literally that was it - love flying Emirates cos on the whole felt super well treated..."

Pros: "- Friendly crew, they managed to get my wife and I to sit together against all odds - Seats are more comfortable than other A380 configurations"
Cons: "- Crew's organization was confusing and all meals and services got surprisingly long to complete. - Most of the time there were no drinks available for passengers to grab and go, and you had to ask specifically even to get water. - Outside of the scheduled meals, there were very few passes to offer drinks to passengers - Entertainment system had great choices but the system ran with lag and lost frames every few seconds (not only in mine, but rather across the cabin)"

Cons: "Bathrooms were not clean later in the flight"

Pros: "Attentive flight crew and spacious interior"
Cons: "Food food and food"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The seating had enough room which made us feel comfortable. Also, the food is is per expectations"

Pros: "Roomy and good service"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable, plenty of legroom, good entertainment options"
Cons: "Food service was chaotic, delayed. For the main meal, the hot entree came about 20 mins after we received the tray with the rest of the food. Some snacks advertised were not served at all."

Pros: "Good entertainment, spacious seating and a friendly staff."
Cons: "The boarding process takes longer with the Airbus 380 and the flight from Dubai to SFO is delayed very often. Staff at the airport could provide timely updates about the delay and the boarding process. I would like to see more options in the raw Vegetable diet as I got the same food for Lunch and dinner"

Pros: "Staff was great. Dealt with new lack of electronics fairly organized for such a sudden thing. Food and flight were good."
Cons: "This isnt a complaint about screaming babies. They dont know any better. But kids that are 3-6 or so? They shouldnt be screaming for hours, kicking seats and the plane window, ignoring and talking back to flight attendants etc. What terrible parents. They left the plane a mess too with food and trash all over the place."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Multiple times I overheard the crew rudely tell elderly foreign passengers that "no this is all we have, only chicken, if you don't want that then you'll have to wait" usually this was said to someone of color and who's english wasn't very good."

Pros: "Choice for entertainment"
Cons: "Have travelled on Emirates several times but the Crew hospitality was poor this time. Oriental food was not good."

Cons: "Food while trip to India was good But food while trip back to sfo was very bad"

Pros: "I was okay till got to sit on their tight sits for 15 hours they could have done better. After 15 hours flight no one cared enough to guide us to rest place, because the next flight was not to the next day, was hoping to let us stay on the hotel. This was a disaster planning by the airline."

Pros: "Great airline and excellent sevice"
Cons: "Checkin associate at SFO was rude and told me that only light baggage is allowed in the plane during borading noticed several passengers with larger bags and sometime two bas as well. I was told I can only take one bag. This caused me to change my plans on what I can carry on my two small bags. This is also the reason why had to take a small handbag to keep everything I needed. I lost this bag at New Delhi airport. Had I been allowed the the standard tote and a laptop bag I may not have needed the extra hand bag and may not have lost my items. Emirates associate is partailly responsible for my lost items."

Cons: "I had given on line preference for Asian vegetarian food but was not served collection of booked luggage at cropusal at SFO ,was difficult for a senior citizen like me as there was commotion"

Pros: "The vegan meals were very good and tasty. I enjoyed the entertainment provided and the plane was very clean. At times the plane was very cold, however the blanket helped with that. It wasn't this flight but the flight from Tanzania to Dubai, the crew sprayed the plane and I would like to know what was sprayed as it was awful and what if any chemicals were sprayed on us. Perhaps it would be better to spray the plane before the passengers board the plane."
Cons: "There was only one flight attendant would didn't assist my friend when we asked her to please take my friend's food tray away. My friend Emily Bayne was having a major discomforting eye allergy attack. Emily eyes were burning, dry, turning red, and very itchy and she wanted to go to the bath room to run warms water over her eyes, however she had the food tray and so we push the attendant help button. But when the flight attendant came to see what we needed and we asked if she could please take Emily's food tray, she just said I will come back later for that. So I told Emily just go to the bathroom I will hold your food tray. Emily Bayne was seated in the middle and I had the aisle seat, 44H. While Emily was in the bathroom I complained to another flight attendant what had happened, she took our food trays and then told her supervisor what happened. The supervisor came shortly and assisted Emily by granting her request and providing her with two warm wet towels, and later 5 more. The supervisor and the other attendant that I complained to continue to check throughout the fljght to see if Emily needed anything else, which was nice and accommodating. The flight after that incident was good, as the supervisor immediately corrected the insensitive act of his flight attendant."

Cons: "All flights were delayed Boarding experience is not that great Not sufficient leg room, so cramped up Food was very average"

Cons: "Our Emirates flight was delayed for 21 hours. They didn't have enough non-vegetarian meals, we were forced to eat vegetarian breakfast and lunch throughout our inbound flight."

Cons: "Check-in counter staffs in Dubai are poorly trained and do not have service-mind at all."

Pros: "A380"
Cons: "Cabin service"

Cons: "We arrived onetime yet Emirates did not have a gate at SFO so we were parked on the tarmac for over an hour after a 16 hours flight. When we got thru immigration in record time due to the newly installed kiosks, we waited for 2.5hours to get our luggage, there was only one carousel open for an entire A380 airplane with all its luggage and the boxes were piling up on each other, some of them were crushed due to overloading, it took them 2 hours to open a second carousel to offload all of the bags. During this entire time, the Emirates representatives were unhelpful, the local SFO personnel were quite disorganized as well."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Management"

Pros: "Service leg space"
Cons: "Nothing much"

Pros: "Hospitality"

Cons: "The food service was not great. They should increase the frequency of meals. Got the worst seats both time. The seats are old and recliner doesn’t come forward as it should"

Cons: "0"

Pros: "I liked that nothing was a hassle to get to, the staff were amazing and the pilot was well-skilled."
Cons: "My only con was the fact that there were many people around me coughing. That's not your fault though, I understand. But still, it was nasty."

Pros: "Crew were very accommodating to the needs to the passengers."
Cons: "Limit the recline on seats to less of an angle in economy."

Pros: "Easy great flight. Good entertainment comfortable seats."

Pros: "The crew were friendly and very helpful. Good choice of movies, tv shows, podcasts and music."
Cons: "When the person in front put his seat back there was no room at all for me. He had it back for the whole 12 hour flight except when the staff asked him to put it up for service."

Pros: "Same as previous answer!"

Pros: "It's a pleasant experience"

Pros: "This flight had significantly less turbulence than my flight to Melbourne"
Cons: "The headphone jack to watch movies was broken so I wasn’t able to watch anything over the 14 hour flight. This was especially frustrating because I had to pay for my seat selection and I assumed all of your seats would be in working order."

Pros: "The crew were really good, kept us informed about the delays and what was happening, and they all remained upbeat and chatty"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Slightly more legroom"

Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Breakfast"

Cons: "Not being able to web check in causes stress pre-flight."

Pros: "Great flight on the 787 Dreamliner and the crew were fantastic. I wish I could say the same thing for Baggage services. I have a business meeting tomorrow morning and presently they can't even reconcile their own Baggage Receipt number! I expect more when travelling (and paying) for business class."

Pros: "Crew member Trevor was funny and the perfect host. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Seats are super uncomfortable and there is no privacy ... worst Business class facilities I’ve ever experienced. Seriously substandard might as well fly economy or better still use a different airline."

Pros: "Great service on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding process with qantas at JFK is chaotic. No one is policed on their seat numbers, status or fare class. this creates a chaotic process for boarding and securing overhead luggage space for higher fare paying customers Very bad lounge at JFK if used to first lounges like Cathay and JAL"

Pros: "The plane itself was nice and comfortable for me. The business class seat fully laid down, and there were lots of entertainment options. The flight was quick! 15hr flight from Melbourne to LAX only took 13 hours!"
Cons: "Several of the food items were either cold or overdone. I asked hostess what the deal was (because their food service is usually great) and she explained that in this new plane (Boeing 787) they removed a lot of the working areas for the crew. They have less space to work in order to be able to prepare food and drinks compared to Qantas's other planes (Airbus A380). This is also a brand new plane for this crew (literally the first flight for some for some of them), and they didn't know where some of the things on the plane were. I imagine after they've used the plane for a while and learn where everything is, they'll get better. I'll find out on the return flight back to Melbourne."

Pros: "Mobile checkin, e-boarding pass, straight to the gate!"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "I watched heaps of movies and programs."

Cons: "Great gluten free options! Thank you!"

Pros: "The crew is always nice and approachable. The entertainment is usually high but this time around there weren't many good choices."
Cons: "The food is AWFUL, and has been getting worse as the years go on. Absolutely terrible taste, stomach-churning smells and gross consistency. During boarding I was profiled by one of your gate agents and "selected for further screening" ... not fun. No explanations, just surly, inattentive agents performing further checks on items that had already been twice-checked at security. Awful service."

Cons: "Bathrooms were disgusting, plane was dirty"

Pros: "Overall a great plane- we were on the 380 going to lax and then we switched to a really old plane. There was a delay of 3 hours from lax which was very annoying."
Cons: "The delay was horrifying. Staff were friendly enough but they really should have offered more snacks and water"

Cons: "Great service , very caring and clean . Looked after me as I had to use a wheelchair . Thank you :)"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly, cabin crew were friendly and helpful. Food was tasty, but portion rather small."
Cons: "Didn't like that every time someone nearby used the entertainment - watched a film I think, my film changed."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "Bags won't arrive for another 24 hours; which means we now have no clothes. Grrr."

Cons: "I was right by the toilets"

Pros: "Great selection of movies, i liked that the economy cabin at the back of the top floor of the a380 was more personal than a larger economy cabin. Crew were happy to serve me drinks throughout the flight after the halfway point when i started drinking"
Cons: "I would love love love to see airlines recycling the majority of the waste generated during flight..."

Pros: "Food was better than expected, recommend qantas to others based on this alone"
Cons: "Qantas safety video was to long... painful to watch. i would love ro see airlines start recycling the waste generated in fliht"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "can not think of any."

Cons: "Only one channel of audio was playing--made listening to Tubular Bells just plain WRONG..."

Pros: "Paying for extra leg room was the best investment. We felt like we were in business class (although haven't ever travelled it). The crew were sensational, obliging, friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "We had to collect our luggage in Los Angeles and then re-lodge it for the New York leg of our flights. It was a nuisance but Qantas staff did everything in their power to make it as smooth as possible."

Pros: "The special meals for my son and daughter were amazing!"

Pros: "The crew manager worked tirelessly to move rows of passengers to other seats because the entertainment system didn't work for a bank of passengers on the long haul flight."

Cons: "Flight late arriving c. 30 mins. Could not get the entertainment working on a 5+ hour flight."

Pros: "Entertainment selection was good, that was about it."
Cons: "Service was so poor. Being in economy they treated you like you were more of a nuisance to them then a customer. Got one drink served to me, 3 hours in, on a 14 hour flight. Our first meal was 3 hours in, and was served 30 min after the people next to me. Trash and dishes were not picked up and when we asked attendant he asked us to bring them to the cabin ourselves! after sitting with them in front of us for an hour after dinner. Window screens left up during flight omitting sun glare making It hard to sleep. been making the LAX to Brisbane or Sydney flight to 8 years now, Qantas has progressively got worse while Virgin customer service remains as a high standard. Looks like sales on Qantas will no longer entice me, I'll be sticking with virgin"

Pros: "Great price Service was great Updated on everything from gate change to flight on timen"
Cons: "Didn't book through Kayak on my previous flights"

Pros: "Friendly attendants; a lot of service available."

Cons: "Older plane with very small and uncomfortable seats. Staff wasn’t nearly as attentive as in previous flights. Several mechanical glitches with the plane itself and with the food service"

Cons: "The seats were broken - did not stay reclined. Also the seat pocket had gaping holes in them - couldn't place anything properly."

Pros: "Fantastic service from check in until arrival."
Cons: "More up to date movies"

Cons: "Entertainment & Meal"

Pros: "Nice crew"

Cons: "I arrived in transit from another flight, no representation to make check in. I needed to wait for gate to open before I could check in. then there was no time for the airline to recover my Bag. Do no us this airline in transit"

Pros: "Service was excellent. Very friendly crew."

Cons: "The seat were not that comfortable!"

Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "Cancelled the flight going to Christmas Island and wouldn’t reschedule until the following week. Trip that was planned for almost 2 years never happened. At least they could have tried the following day but I guess it was a financial decision and not one made with customer service in mind. I would never fly on them except they’re the only game in town to reach Kiribati."

Pros: "comfortable flight"
Cons: "asked for a blanket... girl never came back with one"

Pros: "Interection with various crews when ever necessary."
Cons: "The one and a half hours waiting at the immigration. Only 3 officers to serve hundreds in line."

Cons: "Where do I start !!!! Horrible service bad food no class ... Would never fly Fiji Airways if I have other options . Sad that it's the only airline flying to Fiji ."

Cons: "Airport crew rude"

Cons: "Narrow aisles"

Pros: "Getting seats as a stand by passenger."
Cons: "Connecting in LAX with waiting 20 minutes at the remote gate for the bus, the bus ride and waiting for luggage to clear customs is virtually impossible to go though and make the connection. Having literary run out of customs and being told you missed your boarding time and now you are on stand by is not happy making. American points to a Fiji airlines, Fiji airlines at American as the carrier."

Pros: "Overall service is good for a short flight"

Cons: "The legroom and my touchscreen was unresponsive - had to press the button multiple times."

Pros: "Movie Selection was great"
Cons: "Boarding was a disorganized mess. Different groups in lines and no clear announcement. Food was plastic, even in Business, to the point that I just stopped and snacked on breakfast bars. Crew was uninspired, at best. Lots of shoulder shrugging during any discussion on issues. One even complained about the flight length (we were not delayed). Landed and waited for 10 minutes for jetway to a bus then a 10 minute ride to customs. Good thing they are a near monopoly."

Cons: "Seats are not comfortable"

Pros: "The boarding and service by the staff was very good. We had a most comfortable flight to Sydney on FJ911 leaving very promptly. We were given a Sydney newspaper which I appreciated to catch up on news."
Cons: "We were very disappointed in the breakfast and ate little of it. The scrambled egg didn't taste convincing. There were stale potato wedges - luke warm, the sausage resembled devon . The yogurt, muffin and juice were OK. My 2 cups of tea were VERY GOOD. The flight was very COLD. After being in tropical Fiji particularly noticeable ."

Cons: "Boarding passes were not properly issued causing us to miss connection in LA. Flight left Nadi an hour late and although pilot indicated time would be made up, a 10+ hour flight resulted in less than 15 minutes of time made up. There is no possible reason a flight of this length could not make up the entire deficiency. We were told customer service reps would be available for passengers with tight connections. The customer service rep basically told us there was nothing she could do since we had to go thru customs. Will never fly this airline again. Fly to New Zealand previously on Air New Zealand and will use them in future. Price difference is not worth the service deficiencies."

Pros: "Lots of legroom. Clean, new plan. Friendly qnd efficient crew."

Pros: "Flight canceled. Fiji airways told us we would be booked on Qantas instead but the flight wouldn't give us time to make the connection. Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. F Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."

Pros: "It was very good, the crew were amazing, and I didn't have any issue traveling all the way to my destination. Thank you Fiji Airway and the airlines cooperated with you."

Pros: "The crew was very warm."
Cons: "Seats very tight."

Cons: "Good airline, will fly them again"

Pros: "Neat, polite and orderly. Great food!"
Cons: "Not much."

Pros: "Very pleasant and professional crew."

Cons: "Food quality can be improved a little"

Pros: "Crew was friendly. First class seats fully reclined."
Cons: "I have flown LATAM several times recently, and ALL the planes are old. They are showing their age. For the prices LATAM charges, they should modernize their dated planes. Also, the food leaves much to be desired"

Cons: "They bumped 60 of us off the plane with no warning"

Pros: "I love it ! Everybody very friendly and the food was good"
Cons: "Maybe offer a little bit more food"

Pros: "Comfortable"

Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "n/a"

Cons: "Awful service. Terrible food. The seats are so uncomfortable and the service rude."

Cons: "Couldn’t check in on line"

Pros: "Aircraft condition, crew professionalism"
Cons: "Boarding process in Lima airport"

Pros: "In-flight entertainment is very good with a good selection of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "Flight was first delayed 1 hour then jumped to 3 more hours. Gate was constantly changing so we relaxed at a nearby gate. Never heard a boarding call. Then there's a security check right before you get on the plane so we have to throw away bottles of water that were bought in the terminal after passing initial security. Ridiculous!! How are we to keep hydrated on a 10 hour flight without being able to bring water on the plane?? The flight attendants should, at least, come around with cups of water. Service on LAN was excellent 10 years ago but has deteriorated when it changed to LATAM."

Pros: "crew, punctuality, comfort"
Cons: "no lounge. $20 coupon toward meal at mediocre airport restaurant does not cut it. very laborious boarding process very long wait for 'priority' baggage entertainment system not functional"

Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "seats are the worst I had in 40 years of flying. Very narrow, hard and uncomfortable seats. The leg space was fine, but the seats are terrible. I flew inside Peru with Latam and they were great. I doubt I will use Latam for another international flight."

Pros: "Airline misallocated multiple seats to multiple passengers causing great confusion and delay"

Cons: "I needed to change my flight because of a death in the family. To change my flight was more expensive than the initial ticket itself. That is ridiculous. You should not do that to people. There should be a $300 change fee and that's it. At most. The entertainment would be good if I could hear it - but I couldn't. The sound was terrible. Uncomfortable seats. Barely slept. Overal terrible experience. Also turn on the damn entertainment while we are waiting on the tarmac - why wait until we are in the air? Almost every other airline - all the good ones - Emirates, Lufthansa, and other quality airlines - will let you access the in flight entertainment as soon as you sit. But the change cost of the ticket was the most offensive thing. I feel robbed, in a time of tragedy."

Pros: "I flew back on a LAN plane and the experience was nothing short of what i expect from LAN. There isnt a single complaint. thank you."

Pros: "I left a scarf on the plain when we landed in NY. And a lamd team member, Kelly, went out of her way to get it back for me right at the airport, and I did!!!! So helpful and efficient and curtious!!! Thank you!!!"
Cons: "There was a 1hour delay leaving Chile, but they made up some time in the air."

Pros: "Nice flight, nice plane. Food needs improvement"
Cons: "Ridiculous long time standing for boarding. This needs to be improved."

Pros: "more space in coach section, between seats"
Cons: "less space for legs in seats."

Pros: "I loved the whole trip"
Cons: "Everything was great! No complaints!!"

Pros: "Everything except for the middle seat"
Cons: "The middle seat"

Pros: "Plane was huge and comfortable. Lots of movies and shows to pick from. Crew friendly and considerate. Pillow and super comfy blanket. They offered dinner and breakfast on an overnight flight. Only ate egg and it was normal plane food. We landed 30 min early."

Cons: "When my husband and I arrived to Lima airport 2,5 hours before our scheduled flight, we could not check in because flight was overbooked? There was a seat for one of us (we overheard same conversation at counter next to our - 2 passengers, one available seat)... Explanation was they had technical problems with original plane and they had to replace it with smaller one and everybody else used online checkin in last 48 hours...Everybody else used online checkin?! Is that the rule? Last 48 h of my trip in Peru i did not have internet access, but if it's the only way to get your seat, you paid for months in advance, then I would find some solution. At the end, staying persistent in our request,we were on the scheduled flight (some "miracle" happened and we got 2 seats, next to each other, as same as couple from counter next to us)"

Pros: "Mad good"
Cons: "It was swell"

Cons: "Had to sit for 7.5 hours with no entertainment as TV did not work."

Pros: "-Entertainment in seat TVs was amazing. -Food was delicious -Tons of space and I was in the economy or regular seats. -Love the tinting windows! -Staff as always on LATAM in my recent experience was very good. Very cheerful and very caring and considerate. Must keep saying how good the staff was!"
Cons: "Long boarding time...however I realize this was a very large and full flight."

Cons: "Seat space,"

Pros: "were rescheduled for the flight Lima La2800. Scheduled departure 8.40a.m. Delay 2 hours - aircraft maintenance problem!? Still sitting in the plane in Lima."

Cons: "Customer service was not friendly or helpful in any way shape or form. not concerned for its guests or empathetic. the only thing that came across was that they sincerely didn't care even to make the airline more $$ in selling an upgrade of seats!"

Cons: "Boarding process was a mess. Not a smooth process at all."

Pros: "Everything. The while team was friendly, from check in on the ground all the way into the air."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight at first had a 3 HOUR delay do to a "mechanical breakdown". We were told that they were going to bring another airplane from Rio de Janeiro. After the 3 hours passed they were only announcing in Portuguese to board the original plane. They never changed planes or provided a clear explanation to the passengers. Many of us refused to board. This was one of the worse experiences I have ever had. The staff was disrespectful and would not help us. We ended up taking another flight until the following night!!"

Cons: "Company was not able to understand situation and did not offer solution. I lost my money"

Pros: "The best crew and aervice I have come across in many, many year. The aircraft was really nice and conforatable too."
Cons: "Everything on this flight was amazing, I dare say even perfect."

Cons: "Flight attendants not wiling to help!"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Worst customer service I have ever experienced!"

Pros: "Plane was nice, good entertainment, good onboard staff. Very cool looking interior plane, and service"
Cons: "HORRIBLE pre flight, and in airport staff. Incompetent, zero clue as to handle a delayed flight forced every passenger to hand over passports into communal plastic bags and took them for 2 hours somewhere in the airport unknown to us. I should never have to give up my passport into plastic bags/strangers EVER. They lost my customs paper, and then proceeded to accuse me of "selling it"--They took it after I passed through customs initially and if they put it back in passport after they threw them all in plastic bags- god knows where it is, or who's hands it was in who may have took it. They would not give us food vouchers, or water. They couldn't figure out how to get buses and hotel rooms for people- basic simple business skills-- add number of passengers going to hotel, calculate number of seats per bus and that will get you the number of buses needed--- they couldn't figure that out. I will call and give more detail, I promise."

Cons: "Friendly staff. Took great care of my grandma"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "We had an hour delay and 15 minutes since we land to go out of the pkain"

Pros: "Great flight to Peru from NYC on Latam. Comfortable, clean and service was great. I would fly again on this airline."
Cons: "Staff spoke limited English which was a bit of a surprise on a US flight."

Pros: "The food and entertainment"
Cons: "The seats were the smallest seats I've ever say in and I felt claustrophobic. Checking into this flight was a disaster and impossible. Tam would redirect me to Tam airlines and Lan would redirect me to Lan. The Lan customer service was unable to get into the Tam airlines flight so we emded up with the most awful chairs in the airline. I wish they would fix their website so checkin isn't as frustrating as it was for me. I understand the airlines merged but if each airline is unable to access eachothers flight then how exactly did you merge? ALSO when we got off the first flighy to connect in this one they gave us no explanation until 20min later to where we should commect to this flight. They MADE US WALK A 20min WALK TO ANOTHER TERMINAL WITH ALL OUR BAGS. It was awful. If your gonna need people to walk to another terminal the least you can do is supply a shuttle."

Pros: "Boarding was made extremely easy for the tired, seniors, and people with children."
Cons: "The crudeness of some of the Air Hostesses was appalling. The food was unpalatable and no tolerance for people who were lactose intolerant. Narrow aisles, so going to the dirty toilets needed ingenuity!"

Pros: "Everything except the cramped, smallish seating and the narrow cramped aisles."
Cons: "The cramped, small, tiny seats and the narrow cramped aisles."

Pros: "The attention and the entertaining of the flight"
Cons: "I didn't have a wi-fi access in the plane, it would have been amazing and great to comunicate with family and friends that my flight was little delayed due to air traffic. The last thing I didn't like was the super delayed luggage delivery, because I had no energy to wait an appalling 40 minutes after a long flight."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "crew and cleanliness"
Cons: "Uncomfortable spacing of seats on short flights a nightmare on long hauls. Have to assume the distance between seat and seatback ahead is now a safety issue should an emergency evac. be necessary. Had to argue over an imposed seat change despite holding a 2 hour old agent issued boarding pass. Gate agent plainly lied in claiming an equipment change was making it necessary. At start of trip (1/14), not allowed to board connection and suffered an additional 5hr. layover delay due to baggage transfer problem. No compensation of any type graciously offered for any of the inconveniences."
