We had a long layover, 12 hours, and they said we didn't have rights for anything. So we went to the city on our one because we didn't want to go on organized tour that we need to pay extra money"

Pros: "Fantastic service, very friendly staff who are always happy to help"
Cons: "Should have internet free of charge in flight"
Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to Melbourne then the airlines asked for penalties and fare difference which in total was much higher than booking a fresh one way flight. I felt that the crew at Nairobi airport handled the situation pretty well however, the staff at the Nairobi reservation office were a bit cold and not very helpful."
Pros: "The service was impeccable, flights on time and the transfer easy!"
Cons: "Checkin at Jakarta needs fine tuning. Checkin in started 30mins later than what the QR rep informed me an hr previously. QR lounge needs upgrading."
Cons: "light breakfast and light snacks for an 8-hour flight? come on!"
Pros: "Some how it was a good experience"
Pros: "A shorter flight after long one and a short connection in Doha. Amazing crew, offering lots of help with my baby, again plenty of food, quite tasty, we have been offered seconds and flight wasn't full :) this time in a bassinette row which was a bliss for at least some of the time."
Cons: "The bassinette row seats were quite narrow and less comfortable, again the entertainment options dissapointing."
Pros: "My family was happy with the service provided by Qatar airline."
Cons: "Food quality - lot's of sugar in child meal. Entertainment system slow. We were forced to move the seats into upright position half an hour before landling on a night flight."
Cons: "I was Told the flight form Doha back to Houston was over booked so I had to get re-routed through another city. For a $6,600 business class ticket this is very bad form."
Cons: "qatar airlines has some old airplanes foods are not good"
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The plane was not as clean as the one from Doha to New York. The first movie that was played was inappropriate for children under 16 years old."
Pros: "Everything is fine and have a wonderful time"
Pros: "Everyone on board was pleasantly and helpful and that goes a long way."
Pros: "Roomy seats & clean appearance and modern cabin."
Cons: "Boarding would have been improved by utilizing both cabin doors (front & rear). The entertainment system did not work during my 13 hr flight."
Pros: "Very friendly flight staff."
Cons: "The seats don't recline very far and on the a380 the window is a very long way from the seat making it impossible to lean against. - so difficult to get a reasonable test. The food was not great. Perhaps not qatar's fault(?) but we bought duty free alcohol in Brussels and took as carry on then after a layover in Doha we were advised Australian regulations prohibited us from taking it on board for the final leg - even though it was still sealed in the duty free bag. We were forced to check it protected only by some lightweight clothing and a thin back pack we had been using as cabin luggage. Fortunately it made it undamaged - but it would be better if we had been informed of this at Brussels."
Pros: "I love the help given by ground crew in KLIA upon arrival. The crew waiting at the exit gate to make my transit quick and easy. The staff took me right to the flight gate, issue me the boarding past without me spending time to locate the transfer counter.. It was hassle free. Bravo! Please keep it up with this excellent service"
Cons: "The vegetarian food, noodle with bamboo shoot was too salty and plain."
Pros: "Crew did their best"
Cons: "Plane entertainment was outdated and poor. Plane itself is also lacking comfort"
Cons: "Even though we got off our connecting flight 30 mins before departure, the flight had "already left" as per the Qatar Doha crew and we were re-booked to the following day's flight. Very ridiculous."
Cons: "No Chinese food to choose"
Pros: "Very good attentive service"
My credit card was stolen and this flight booked, you enabling piece of trash. I never flew and hopefully no one did. Do better.
Liked the flight both ways. The return flight Crew (DUBai to NY) could be bit more friendlier/courteous, May be it’s just the way they communicate.
90% of crew was great. Gentleman from Lebanon was wonderful. One blond lady was a grouch! Overall good. Good and wine were great.
The flights were good. service was good. food could be little better.
Pros: "Entertainment, punctuality, helpful crew"
Pros: "Entertainment always the best!!! The spacious seat and quick check in system"
Cons: "The crew can improve by more attentive and Mayb more staffs. The flight is full, they quite busy. But General is good. The food can be better options"
Pros: "Double seat on economy class upper deck"
Pros: "The crew was very polite and professional."
Cons: "There could be more legroom."
Pros: "Seat was okay, even when multiple exit row seats were available they would not give it to passengers as they had 500 Dirhams charge on them. Qatar had no such policy when I travelled there two weeks ago they happily let us use the exit row when no one was seated there"
Cons: "Seat was okay, even when multiple exit row seats were available they would not give it to passengers as they had 500 Dirhams charge on them. Qatar had no such policy when I travelled there two weeks ago they happily let us use the exit row when no one was seated there"
Cons: "Flew airbus 380 all the way and it was super comfortable!"
Pros: "The staff were very attentive and polite at all times!"
Pros: "Fabulous flight and trip to Australia"
Pros: "Outstanding and very helpful service"
Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety"
Pros: "My first flight with Emirates. Excellent all round"
Cons: "Food was pretty bad."
Pros: "Smooth flight, courteous staff"
Pros: "Usual overall great service."
Cons: "They were stingy with the beverages. No sodas until 2/3 way through the flight, and small, infrequent cups of water, all while running an “ad” telling me to stay hydrated."
Pros: "I liked the service provided."
Cons: "Would like to see decent vegetarian food options. Also please introduce some variance in your menu. the menu has been the same in the last 3 flights."
Pros: "Good leg room and good service. Food decent and 380 has very good stable flight even with occcasional turbulence"
Cons: "Cannot think of anything I dint like"
Pros: "Footrest would make the flight just perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Makes it a little uncomfortable for short people."
Pros: "It's time to check the competition."
Cons: "Emirates is (just) OK in a business class (never trier economy in Emirates), but I have a very strong feeling they should be much better. Cabine interior should be much better (it's old, seats are not full beds and are somehow narrow). Food offering should be improved (continental breakfast - what king of cost-cutting is that???). What is really good is in-flight entertaintement system. But you don't pay for a business class to watch movies, right?"
Cons: "the boarding process was awful. they called for people to go into the pregate area at and the plane had not yet arrived. once in the pregate area the is no access to food or water and you cannot bring in a bottle of water from the terminal"
Pros: "Nice airplane, good entertainment, good food, ontime service, pleasant cabin crew"
Pros: "The staff was excellent"
Cons: "The wet bun for a snack was terrible."
Cons: "Emirates chairs couldn't decline recline"
Pros: "The flight was superb."
Cons: "Nothing. Will always fly Emirates whenever I get the chance."
Pros: "I like the flight route"
Cons: "This is my fourth time booking Emirates for my route through kayak. The route is longer but I choose it for on-board Internet for work emails. Generally, they have on-board WiFi Internet, however for my return route of 21 hours both flights had no wifi which was disappointing. This is unprofessional because if you are planning on having WiFi to respond to work emails and it is not available once you are already in the air there is nothing you could do but get stuck. Never does this happen with Lufthansa, Turkish, Etihad. Disappointing."
Pros: "It felt comfortable."
Pros: "Loved the Emirates experience as always, esp the in-flight experience (incl food) and entertainment."
Cons: "Captain's announcements in the flights were also either not loud enough or not intelligible."
Pros: "Quality of service"
Pros: "The service is excellent!"
Cons: "Crammed, staff poor"
Cons: "I did not get the seats I selected when booking"
Pros: "Lots of leg room in a very comfy seat. Great cabin service from friendly and helpful cabin staff. Great entertainment options. Thankyou"
Cons: "Very cold. Limited new/quality music to choose from..."
Pros: "All flight attendants dressed and acted in a VERY professional manner. Always polite and helpful. Lots of smiles. Loved the eye mask, ear plugs, socks and toothbrush. Food was much better than most flights on other airlines."
Cons: "On such a long flight I wish my seat would have gone back just a little more. Might have been easier to sleep. Would have liked to have a newer selection of movies."
Pros: "The outbound service from US was 10 times better than the inbound. US to Dubai would get 10/10 however the same flight inbound in terms of service, crew, food was 5/10."
Cons: "Waiting for 4 hours for boarding due to silly mistake of agent for booking my ticket with wrong spelling & keep me on hold for hours & hours. will never recommend such site to others."
Cons: "after the origin flight was already 12 hours late, had to wait another 8+ hours at Dubai airport for this connecting flight."
Cons: "I was not allowed onto this flight (Dubai to Hong Kong) because my previous flight (London to Dubai) was a little late, but I made it to the gate before it was closed. My fellow passengers from my flight were also not allowed onto the plane, and while we were arguing (including being told that the plane was full) other passengers from an even later flight were allowed on board! Instead I had to wait many hours in the terminal (because apparently there were no hotel rooms available!?) to get a flight to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (!!!?) where I could get a Cathay flight to Hong Kong. This meant I arrived 14 hours later than scheduled. Absolutely abysmal service, with no sympathy and no responsibility from any employees."
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."
Cons: "The crew wasn't as attentive to me as they were to the gentlemen on the plane. Felt a ignored quite a bit."
Pros: "I chose to upgrade with a great offer made on the internet when I checked in online. The crew were superb. The cabin is the best there is for business class."
Cons: "Food is average - bar snacks are good."
Pros: "Emirates flight and on flight services were Superb!"
Cons: "Bought tickets on Malaysian Airlines quota/allocation but was turned away by Malaysian Airlines counter becausw its operated by Emirates. Im a silver card holder on Oneworld ao I wanted to have less queue by using Silver card privileges at Malaysian Airlines counter but was not accepted. Had to go onlong queue at Emirates in KLIA but it was fast."
Pros: "Overall experience was good"
Cons: "Up grade with new movies. When I was booking the flight I choose my seats. But they at the airport they change the seating and separate the family."
I am not happy with the whole experience
Flight was completely on time, The crew was helpful beyond the minimum requirements, and the checked-in luggage arrived almost as soon as we reached the belt. Very nice experience.
Prefer others masking. Even though it was announced many were not masked
Awesome! I traveled in business, love it!
Pros: "The lie-flat seats were just great ."
Cons: "Storage space should be made available beside the seats , especially during take-off and landing. There is none right now , and that's in Business class."
Pros: "Overall pretty good. Newer plane, business class is well configured."
Cons: "Food was good, not great. Seats when flat are quite hard."
Pros: "Overall it was a great experience with Finnair, the plane was clean and spacious. The crew was very nice and helpful. The food and drinks were great as well"
Pros: "Food and entertainment is good"
Cons: "They had hidden checked bag fees. Their website says flights from the US get a free checked bag. The checkout charged me $60 to check a bag, when I looked on my reservation it says it’s $55 and when I called customer service they said they charge $100 to check 1 bag less than 20kg for an international flight"
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "I couldn’t change my seat"
Pros: "Check- in to arrival was what I would expect from a flight. It was my first flight with Finnair and I will fly with this airline again."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "I liked that there was a smaller airplane on LED - HEL route: it gives more "feeling of flying" than the bigger planes do."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that it was not indicated in advance (when the tickets are sold) that LED - HEL route is operated by a different airline, even though that airline is a Finnair's partner. It would have been better to have a complete information up front. But the airplane and crew were excellent."
Pros: "it was just okay. nothing spectacular."
Cons: "my luggage was misplaced and I didnt have it for 3 days."
Pros: "Crew was awesome. Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Plane was late leaving Helsinki due to broken latch, which made us late getting into Chicago. After landing we waited at least 45 minutes to get to a gate. It took at least 30 minutes to get off the plane and then getting through customs was a nightmare. Arrival board at O'Hare said plane was on time, but listed gate as 0, which of course doesn't exist so our ride home had no idea what was going on or what was taking so long and ended up waiting over three hours for us to get through everything to meet them."
Cons: "Nice flight, nice crew"
Pros: "The shorter flight to Zurich was on a smaller plane than the overseas one, but I'm not sure what model. It seemed about average for comfort; overhead bins held my backpack easily, while I find many older planes do not. Coffee or soda was free, everything else was for sale. Attendants on this flight were very busy and very friendly. Check-in was run very efficiently. My check-through luggage arrived intact. Overall a good experience on a two-hour journey. Plane arrived about 10 minutes ahead of schedule, which is always a plus."
Cons: "No real issues with this flight. it accomplished my objective - to get to Switzerland intact, with a minimum of fuss."
Pros: "The plane was good, the flight time was nice, just 9.5 hours."
Cons: "The boarding was kind of chaotic, but the crew was kind. The plane seemed comfortable but the seats sit too far back, so when the person in front of me sat his seat back, his head was almost in my lap. It made it hard for me to move or read or do anything. The food was super bland and the drink options were pretty limited. The entertainment selection was much more limited than most flights."
Pros: "Great customer service; food was good; excellent movie selection"
Cons: "For some reason about half of the passengers had to have their boarding passes reissued so departure was delayed- thus arrival was delayed & some passengers missed connections- I had plenty of time so it wasn't an issue for me"
Pros: "Crew attitude, food, bluberry juice, punctuality"
Cons: "Babies under 1yr need bassinet by regulation, pls implement. Tough to hold kid for 8 hrs, even with baby bjorn - can injure baby's neck!"
Pros: "Good imfo"
Pros: "Boarding and de-boarding was quick"
Cons: "We had a very rude male flight attendant that argued with us when they didn't have a vegetarian meal for my wife even though we checked that box when buying our tickets. My wife ate two bread rolls for dinner before the next meal 7 hours later. Later, when the second meal was served, he muttered a smart assed reply to my wife after he handed her food to her. After that meal service he offered everyone coffee except us."
Cons: "We had to buy 2 new tickets with Lufthansa in may because finnair cancelled the tickets we bought months ago : the difference of tickets pride was 780$ per tickets to totally we lost over 1,500$ This is not fair at all - they should not propose tickets at such prices and let us think for months our trip is fine because we have to buy last minute new tickets at very expensive prices"
Pros: "It was a short plane ride that was pleasant."
Pros: "Very easy check-in process, very easy boarding process, flight attendants were pleasant. Comfortable seat which allowed sleeping easily"
Cons: "no problems"
Cons: "Seats were too closely spaced. Like a coffin. Will probably not fly Finnair unless the price is next to nothing."
Pros: "They waited with connection flight."
Cons: "Looks of people waiting for us. They really hated us. Luggage made it next day. No food on board."
Pros: "Headset did not work properly overall it was great"
Cons: "Headset receptacle did not work properly I could only hear in left ear"
Pros: "There was plenty of room and the food was good."
Cons: "Can't think of anything I didn't like"
Pros: "It is misleading to review this as finnair flight. Not relevant"
Pros: "Airbus 350, quiet and smooth. Wifi, booking a taxi on board and being met on arrival. Good seats in business."
Cons: "Bag collection was chaos and took too long, it's not such a busy airport"
Pros: "Individual seat video screens / media selection for such a long flight. Food also good, with good beer / wine selection"
Cons: "Bag never was placed on this flight, for whatever reason. BA had almost 4 hours to ensure its inclusion--but without success. It was delivered within 48 hours to my home, though, with all contents in tact."
Pros: "We got there"
Cons: "No way to get seat assignments until 4 hours before flight"
Pros: "The meeting I was attending in NY got postponed so I lost the full 1/2 return ticket. Nothing I could do, all at once all kinds of small text appear in big and over 400 $ was lost. This is the last time I book with Kayak. Better pay a bit more directly with the airline but do not have a deal like the Kayak deal. So please remove from all your sites. Thank you VV"
Pros: "It was relatively inexpensive. I didn't mind the food/"
Cons: "This flight was operated by BA. Seats were incredibly uncomfortable. When the guy in front of me reclined his head was practically in my lap. TV's were crappy and the in-flight selection was mediocre. In flights announcements were very loud through headphones."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Loading was like a cattle car. Drinks were slow to be offered. No drinks until after food was served more than one hour into the flight. No one ever seemed to check if I needed anything. When I did, there was no call-button. Seats were from the 90's and VERY narrow. I would NEVER pay for First/Business class on Finnair again. It was very poor."
Pros: "Crew was (as usual on BA flights) friendly, attentive, and personable."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Everyone was all bunched up and you could not get through when your rows were called. Also, when they "boarded by rows" the called rows 23-50+ all at once so that people were all bunched up in the isles of the plane. It really did not help"
Cons: "We paid extra for seat selection which was supposed to be a window seat and ended up in middle seat... not acceptable..."
Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Seats were very small"
Cons: "Our bag was not checked through to our final destination and was delivered a day later."
Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Both the British Airways attendant who check me in in Chicago, and the British Airways attendant who checked me in in London, were not paying attention to my final destination and did not mark my luggage for my final destination."
Cons: "A lot of turbulence. Only paid food offerings. From gate took 10-15min bus drive to plane No entertainment"
Pros: "Kind staff"
Cons: "Entertainment outdated"
Pros: "Good American Arline's crew"
Cons: "Operated by American Airlines. This was a different filght than was in our tickets because we were late for our connection flight. There were no help from Finnair to find a "replacement" flight."
Pros: "service . Informed the status of flight immediately. which is very useful to plan."
Cons: "If it is extra line to add for select the type of food, then it is useful the passenger. Because may some people are vegetarian then they know what they can have."
Pros: "Got a very nice vegetarian meal"
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work"
Pros: "The staff were incredible and helpful. The entertainment made the flight go much faster. The airplane was comfortable and clean. Great flight"
Cons: "The passengers next to me smelled severely of body odor. I know that this isn't something the flight crew can do anything about but it made my flight really uncomfortable. Thankfully the seat next to me opened. So I loved a seat away- but even that couldn't mask the smell!"
Pros: "Aircraft was so old.Paying $1,000 for that, when any other airline uses decent aircrafts, is just unacceptable."
