Pros: "Excellent crew and great food."

Pros: "Not satisfied"
Cons: "Need improvements"

Pros: "Crew was terrific. Great service. New aircraft are comfortable too."
Cons: "Food. Meals are of poor quality. Bland in taste and rubbery texture."

Pros: "Amazing staff, clean plane, good food, comfortable seats in business"
Cons: "Plane was very warm. Uncomfortably warm Movie selection was boring. Too many Marvel films which was ridiculous."

Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."
Cons: "The seats barely recline backward which really meant I was basically upright trying to sleep for 14 hours on one leg and 6 hours on the next. My luggage was lost, despite being promised it would be delivered that day I had to wait 24 hours."

Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."

Pros: "Qatar is awesome. Amazing service and great new planes."
Cons: "All good"

Cons: "Crew members are waking up for lunch and breakfast but not for snacks and other beverages. We are feeling hungry later. we aren't knowing when they ll provide."

Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."

Pros: "Business class seats were comfortable."
Cons: "No WiFi, Poor list of shows"

Cons: "Unfortunately WiFi services was off"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The food was very poor"

Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"

Cons: "Rules"

Pros: "Small airport"
Cons: "Transfer is inconvenient."

Pros: "Dallas to Doha wheel chair service and boarding was good."
Cons: "My parents did not get wheel chair in Delhi after that long,tiring journey..this is the service airline provide,it's so disgusting..they didn't even get the porter..they had to carry the heavy luggage when they have problem in walking..I am so disappointed.what is the use of this survey."

Pros: "Excellent service. Flight on time."

Pros: "Landing and botding is safe"
Cons: "...."

Pros: "Solid movie selection, good food"
Cons: "You have to go through security again at the Qatar Airlines gate, which takes extra time"

Pros: "Great on board bar"

Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable and I got a few hours sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."

Pros: "Love it. Newer airplane; state of the art high-tech."

Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."

Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."

Pros: "The food on foreign airlines is so much better than on american airlines (they even offer something in economy class on short local flights)."
Cons: "The seat spacing on the 70-minute flisght was a little cramped - it would be even worse for a taller person than I (at 5'10")."

Pros: "Overall it was a nice flight however some areas need some attention. Boarding gates were very crowded and there was no crowd management in the small area. Secondly, the food was not at all upto the mark. If you are serving sandwich atleast make it flavorful or just serve drinks on this short flight with nuts/biscuits/chocolate."
Cons: "Read on the left."

Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."

Pros: "When we flew into Melbourne it was not a happy experience. Seats were cramped and arm rests wouldn't raise. The flight out, even though on the same model plane, was better. There was more room and we could raise the arm rests. For a 13+ hour flight that makes a big difference."
Cons: "Because the tickets listed the same type of plane in both the bad and not so bad flight, it is very hard to know what we're going to get. I'd love to be able to plan to avoid the bad experience, but if they use the same plane in two configurations, there isn't enough information to do so."

Cons: "Food choices could be better."

Pros: "Food came out 1 am melb time ,2 hours after departure ."

Pros: "Left on time. Great pilot and crew - very concerned about our welfare. Quick flight. Nice aircraft."

Cons: "Love that they fly an a380 into christchurch - a bit overkill but was told it is cheaper to overnight the plane in christchurch vs Sydney or Melbourne"

Cons: "Crew service was disgraceful"

Pros: "Individual usb charge port and meal"

Cons: "Terrible procedures in Sidney and Los-Angeles with uncertainty, broken schedule , chaos and wasting passengers' time."

Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing that is unique to Qantas or just flying in general."

Pros: "Took off and landed safely"
Cons: "Entertainment is old compared to other airlines. Screen is low resolution."

Pros: "Everything."

Pros: "The interior of the seats a very nice. QANTAS blankets and cushions are comfortable. I also like the little drop down net under the seat for you feet to rest in. The QANTAS flight staff are great. I also like that they don't go down the aisle with trolleys a lot (just for the meals) and that they just come around with jug and cup for drinks."

Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."
Cons: "I dont like having to track the distance through the outside lounge in both directions to get to the Business Lounge. The Business Lounge is frequently busy and noisy. Very hard to conduct a phone conversation from."

Cons: "This was actually promoted on the site as an emirates ticket and only after id purchased it did i figure out that it was actually for Emirates Airways sister airline Qantas Airways! I tried to change my dates after I bought it and dealing with Flight network -where i bought it from - was a nightmare!! I wouldnt recomment this at all."

Cons: "I was right by the toilets"

Pros: "Great selection of entertainment. Good pillows."
Cons: "They let us know by email little before departure that there would be a delay of 1h 15 min in our arrival to London. This made me uneasy from the very beginning that I would lose my London-Luxembourg flight. The crew in the boarding gate, only after much insisting, said they would make a note so that someone from Qantas would wait for me and help me get my London-Luxembourg flight no problem, but in the next stopovers (Melbourne, Dubai), there was no sign of this. Also, the delay in the end was 2h 20 min - and I lost my flight to Luxembourg."

Pros: "There was clear communication at the Gate Lounge as to why the plane was delayed, what was being done about it, and what to expect. The crew also tried quite hard to be helpful whilst on board the flight."
Cons: "The cabin seemed tired overall, not very comfortable and lacking in newer amenities such as USB outlet, charger, wifi. The food was terrible - barely edible I would say. I was not offered an alcoholic drink throughout the flight and when I requested a wine, it never arrived. The trolleys seemed to be piled high with rubbish."

Pros: "Aircraft"
Cons: "Compares very unfavourably to Emirates who we used on the outward leg. Food very poor and choices limited by the time we were served."

Pros: "Friendly service"

Pros: "Landing with strong winds went well."
Cons: "No seat pillows"

Cons: "Late leaving and still pretending it was going to leave sooner than it did. It boarded 15 mins after the published delayed departure time. Staff wouldn't even call to find out when it would really leave. Lounge closed before the flight was called,"

Cons: "All round excellent"

Pros: "I cannot thank the Qantas staff enough for our recent, very smooth trip from Melbourne to Dubai. I was a little worried about the 14 hour trip since I am 7 months pregnant and wanted to be sure I had enough room to move about as needed. Both the desk and plane staff arranged for my husband and myself to have 4 seats to ourselves (luckily, it wasn't a full flight!) which allowed me to rest and put my feet up (literally!) through our long journey. They also checked on us frequently to make sure we were comfortable throughout. Thanks so much Qantas, we will definitely be traveling with you again with our little one in tow!"

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

Pros: "I was fortunate to a e a points upgrade to 1st Class Like a dream"

Pros: "The staff where excellent as was the full process from getting to the airport to disembarking. Would like to fly with them again"
Cons: "We have an autistic child and to get the seats that are most suitable for us proved very difficult. We got there in the end but basically they have said that that if we want to get our seats before check in opens we need the pay. We have never had to do this before and I was very shocked and surprised. They eventually relented and resolved the issue however the damage was already done. For a company that is associated with the local autism society I was very disappointed that they don't recognise it for the challenge that it can be."

Pros: "On time , efficient service"
Cons: "Crowded"

Pros: "Crew were amazing!"

Pros: "The crew was attentive"

Cons: "Crew could have been more pleasant"

Pros: "Great service! Food was very good."
Cons: "That boarding. People who were not in line rushed to the front when boarding started."

Pros: "All the pieces to have provided an excellent experience were there, but they didn’t come together. It was nice to get some food, and the movie choices were pretty good."
Cons: "Hot, like super hot, in the aircraft. It was horrible."

Cons: "Connecting flight wss unreasonably late and they lied about luggage being loaded onto the flight. One of the bags is completely missing in the system. Waste of time and too much trouble"

Pros: "Overall good experience"
Cons: "Bathrooms were already dirty upon boarding"

Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Seat was moved into a middle seat. I was very uncomfortable for the flight. Crew member granted someone else seat change before mine and i asked first. Very upsetting flight."

Pros: "Staff was good"
Cons: "6 hrs delays"

Cons: "It took over an hour for Business class bags to come out. Not sure why I paid for business class if they don't know to offload them first in Dubai. Really ruined the first experience with Turkish Air."

Pros: "I had empty seats next to me"
Cons: "The guy that checked me in was very rude and wasn’t smiling at all and then he showed my passport picture to his colleague and they both started laughing. I was trying to use the restroom on the plane but there was a person in there for a long time; I waited outside patiently and then when I got in I brushed my teeth and used the toilet. It didn’t take me that long but the flight attendant knocked hard on the door but she didn’t do that for me with the other guy. I didn’t feel welcomed at all from the crew honestly."

Cons: "I have a trip from Manchester to Riyadh and I have a stop in Istanbul. Manchester plane was delayed one hour, no problem, but I arrived in Istanbul at the right time and the gate was open I gave them my ticket. They told me that the sestem moved your seat to the second plane but now the plane is open. ? I waited 6 hours at Ataturk airport and had a working meeting I could not attend"

Pros: "The international pods were wonderful. Lots of space and could choose from a ton of movies. the bathroom was oversized with plenty of space. And the Bentley travel packs are a very nice touch. The highlight of the trip though is the Turskish Lounge in Istanbul. It has several grand pianos, tons of iMac stations, a freaking golf simulator, and different food stations. Thai, Turkish cuisine a salad bar. It it the best lounge I have experienced 10 fold. It’s the size of a mall."
Cons: "One negative was the beverage service. Iberia and Korean air are much more attentive before and upon take off. Beverage carts come around quite often. Turkish, not so much. Also food was just okay. Feel like other airlines do better in business class"

Cons: "the food is a bit tastless"

Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "they provide such a great service so that I cannot find anything else to complain."

Pros: "Never got the chance to actually try it."
Cons: "I was penalized because of a political issue between USA and Turkey. I couldn't get the visa to travel there, and despite that I couldn't get a refund. I am 1k with united air, and will never include THY in my plans."

Cons: "Turkish air had great service, food, entertainment and nice comfortable planes. Left on time and arrived on time. Two unrelated issues at Miami airport they didn't have a separate line for the people holding global entry and at the Istanbul airport no info desks to direct passenger to their connecting flight"

Pros: "Food good, good service"
Cons: "Change of flight at lstanbol.no help to carry hand bags especially for seniors."

Pros: "Travel on THY within Turkey and between countries. Service excellent, food is great, amenities abound. Always travel THY when I can."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike! My favorite airline."

Pros: "The service, food, convenience of a direct flight to Istanbul"
Cons: "The entertainment system in my seat did not work (they offered to change my seat but I declined). Also the WiFi was spotty. However, I always enjoy flying with Turkish Airlines due to the excellent service and delicious food."

Cons: "I almost got bumped off my flight because I didn't check in online. It was very stressful"

Pros: "All went well with security and boarding."
Cons: "Rough air and turbulence"

Pros: "Crew, entertainment, boarding"
Cons: "I had a stop in Istanbul airport and a change of planes The first plane although much larger than the second the set leg room was very tight, for 186cm tall person it was a disaster The second plane however had better leg room and was more comfortable than the first"

Pros: "Excellent customer service"

Pros: "Good food, very polite and attentive staff."
Cons: "Seat cushions lack comfort and the legroom is not sufficient for a average size person."

Cons: "Delayed yet again"

Pros: "Food and drinks,"
Cons: "No USB outlets."

Pros: "food was amazing"

Pros: "Boarding procedure was not organized. Boarding of business class and special needs passengers was not prioritized and were boarded along with economy passengers. Good choice of movies."
Cons: "TV screen very far from the seat and could only interact with it via the remote control."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful in getting the Wi-Fi to work on my phone. The food was delicious."
Cons: "Not enough leg room for me at 6'3"ans the guy in front of me reclined his seat for the whole 12 hour flight!"

Pros: "Same asabive"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "I like the good service and the food"

Pros: "Food and entertainment were OK."

Pros: "Good overall"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not paying close enough attention they walked fast through the aisles and walked in to my head as I slept and ran into my feet with the food service cart I didn't hear I'm sorry or anything they just kept going"

Pros: "The flight was on time, lots of amenities, comfortable seats"
Cons: "The flight attendants weren't personable on any of the flights. I'm 6 months pregnant and randomly get hungry. There are snacks like muffin available "anytime" On our long flight from Atlanta to Paris I pressed the button 3 times to see if I could get a muffin, but the attendant alert was turned off remotely and no one came to check on me. Thank God it wasn't some sort of emergency."

Pros: "The entertainment choices, including live sports, were excellent."
Cons: "The boarding was chaotic, and we sat on the tarmac for over an hour."

Pros: "Brand new aircraft. Onboard wifi and live TV. Good food. This is one of the routes where Turkish feels need to compete."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding procedures in Istanbul airport."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Crew were exceptionally warm and pleasant, and made me feel more than welcome onboard."
Cons: "This was one of the worst days of my life, health-wise, so it could be that my observation of the passage of time was somewhat distorted, but Turkish did everything either slowly, or more slowly on this day. First, name two things on a flight line that are wheeled, movable objects. Did you answer bus and plane? Well done. So if both bus AND plane are theoretically mobile, why then must I endure a long walk AND a long bus ride? Boarding was an hour-long event, probably due again to inefficient ground services. I fell asleep and woke up twice before it was over."

Pros: "There's nothing to like when the Federal Aviation administration bans direct flights from US to Istanbul, Turkey"
Cons: "I hate that KAYAK sells me this package and after collecting their commission the only customer support is to direct me to subcontractors which in turn direct me to the airline which in turn NEVER PICKS THEIR F*CKING PHONES UP!!! BAD BAD BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE #NEVEREVERKAYAK"

Pros: "Entertainment (movies) always helpful to pass the time."
Cons: "Hot in the plane during and after boarding - no cool air. I have come to expect more from Turkish Airlines, and I hope they make sure they improve this aspect."

Pros: "The food and crew service"
Cons: "The leg room is really limited in the economy cabin"

Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The cup holder on my seat was broken and wouldn't stay up... So minor. Other than that, we had a very pleasant flight in TA."

Pros: "Food and boarding process"
Cons: "Lost luggages."

Pros: "The crew is excellent"
Cons: "The seats area are too small my knees hurt as they hit just the edge of the food tray, impossible flight with the seat other than straight as you will be disturbing a lot the other passengers, although unfortunately some people do not care about the confort of the others"

Pros: "Entertainment was good, there was a wide variety of movies, music and TV shows to keep passengers entertained. Seats were comfortable enough."
Cons: "I was really disappointed with Turkish airlines this time. When we first boarded, I informed the flight attendant that I had hurt my back just 20 min ago and if it was possible to change seats (since it was hard for me to move with 2 people sitting next to me) after boarding was complete. She was nice enough by offering me ice, and said that once I hear the announcement ''boarding complete'' I can get up and look for a more comfortable seat. When I did that she asked me to go back to my seat immediately without letting me speak, and not once during the 13hr 30 min flight did she come to check if I needed anything. Food was served twice, a 13hr 30 min flight and food was served twice. It was almost impossible to call flight attendants if you needed water, coffee or was starving..they were always in a hurry and a little rude. Definitely going with Emirates next time, the service there doesn't even compare!"

Cons: "Checked bag got ruined, servie was terrible"

Cons: "FROM TEL AVIV WAS BAD, LATE, NO KOSHER FOOD, MISSED CONNECTION. TO TEL AVIV OK.. BUT VERY LATE HOUR AS SCHEDULED."

Cons: "Food smooth"

Pros: "Yes, they were nice and approachable at all time. The seat was fine, I slept most of the time"

Pros: "The food was great and so was the entertainment."
Cons: "The service was overall very good, but the attendants would come drop off the food and then not come back to pick up the trash for an hour or so at times. Other than this, I would recommend"

Pros: "Good check in and inflight crew service and attitude."
Cons: "Poor IFE (overhead LCD screens too small and no headsets provided for sound), seat quality/pitch, no wifi, poor snack quality/type (barely edible choco cupcake)"

Pros: "Sit is average small"
Cons: "Food was terrible, need to improve for the food quality"

Pros: "No and No"
Cons: "Was in business class and service is poor. Food was mediocre and service was not at par as other business class airlines. Toilet is dirty most times and lacking toiletries. Very unsanitary. Only thing good is all service staff always smile but lack proper and on time service training."

Pros: "I like how the flight was non- stop."
Cons: "The seat was cramped and uncomfortable. Although I am a person of short stature, my back was achy throughout the flight."

Cons: "Ran out of chicken for the paid meal. Fish was terrible."

Pros: "Entertainment was good... boarding was good."
Cons: "Totally uncomfortable.... big guy had his legs almost on top of mine under the seat in front of me. He was so wide, his shoulders and arms were on top of my chest at some points of the journey. Bigger people should not be able to buy coach seats. They should have size and weight restrictions."

Pros: "The service of Philippine Airlines have greatly improved. I have flown over 20 international airlines like Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways, Etihad Airways, British Airways, Lufthansa Airways, JAL, ANA, EVA Air, Korean Air, ASIANA Air , LAN Chile, Cathay Pacific, Qantas Airlines to name a few. And these airlines gave good service. The service of Philippine Airlines is good. They just need to add movies in all the regional flights ."
Cons: "The airlines need to add videos and movies. Without it, the airlines is like flying in the JURASSIC era!"

Pros: "Great crew, good food"
Cons: "No entertainment either flight or snacks to purchase."

Pros: "Nearly empty flight and was able to move to different seat for added comfort"
Cons: "Selection of inflight entertainment was very limited. Boarding was very unorganized at the gate"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "From on-line checkin to baggage claim in LAX was easy."
Cons: "At the gate, we had to go through another security check, which was fine. But I had to surrender the water bottle that I just bought from the concession stand across from the gate. The reason I was given was that the US rules require water is not allowed to be carried into the plane... In-flight entertainment did nto have many choices of action films."

Cons: "The flight attendant that was helping in my side was really not feeling like she wanted to work that day. No smiling. No interaction with the passengers. Just wanted everything done right away. She had the look of not wanting to be there period."

Pros: "Great experuance. Caring staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Most of the flight was excellent. The food was really good, the seats were comfortable and I got sleep easily. The cabin crew was excellent. No words to say about that. The inflight entrainment was the best. The IFE improved a lot. Overall a really good experience indeed"

Pros: "The service on the flight was superb."

Cons: "I late only 2 min but can not fight with them"

Cons: "The crew ran out of meal choices for those in the back rows. Then there were no hot towels again for everyone in the back rows. There were no apologies for running out of hot towels even when it was asked about."

Pros: "Very little leg room and stinky toilet"

Pros: "Air hostesses very helpful and polite"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "Up to date and WORKING entertainment system. Ample charging options. Business class seat operation a little cumbersome and complex, but fully reclining"
Cons: "Came down with flu right after flying, again! Most likely sources are passaenger poor hygiene, poor cleaning practice between flight and poor air recirculation with inadequate filtration...hope to fix those things one day"

Pros: "Other than a crew member that was quite rude all else was ok"
Cons: "Flight attendant was quite rude and snippy... all other crew members were just fine"

Pros: "Philippines Airlines ground staff expedited our immigration and customs clearance in MNL because of a flawed system for international transfers between terminals. We would have missed our connection despite a 2 hour connection time if not for their assistance."
Cons: "Despite having our bags tagged from TPE via MNL to DXB and a 2 hour transit window in MNL, we were forced to clear immigration in MNL, claim our bags, clear customs and then pay for taxi transfer between terminals to check in again for our PR flight from MNL to DXB. At the very least Philippines Airlines should have provided transport betweeen terminals. We will NOT transit through MNL again until this is fixed."

Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Not a lot of leg room. Didn't realize there was in flight entertainment until after the flight was over."

Pros: "Flight left on time arrived early, bags were fast getting to the carousel. A good flight no hassles or dramas."
Cons: "Everything was great"

Cons: "Don't delay the flight"

Pros: "the crew friendliness"
Cons: "twice delayed boarding"

Cons: "Mechanical difficulties. 9 pm delayed then new flight next day around 10/11am"

Cons: "The flight was delay for 3hours,the airline did not give us any updates during the delay,also nothing was offered to us(customers) in return for their delay."

Cons: "All four of my flight on Philippines Airlines were over 3 hours delayed. Nothing good about this airline. Horrible food. But the delays were beyond the pale. Do not fly this airline and if you have to, don't have a connecting flight the same day, you WILL NOT make it."

Pros: "The service is good. Typical Philippine airlines, friendly service."
Cons: "I don't like the iPad entertainment. I prefer seat mounted screens. The chairs are too cramped as well. Boarding was a bit slow and the waiting area was so cramped."

Cons: "Excellent staff. Very service oriented. I would fly them again. Good as well."

Cons: "It was fine."

Cons: "the airport in Manila is terrible. Elevator broken so had to carry my carryon up 6 or 7 flights of stairs. Not enough seats for the voucher breakfast and the breakfast was mainly tiny and full of carbohydrates."

Pros: "Nothing hated every minute of the cattle car ride from hell"
Cons: "Delays horrible flight attendants extremely small seats"

Cons: "There is a lot to improve on with their food. As the main Philippine carrier, they should make adobo in the best possible and original way that returning residents will immediately feel they are "home"."

Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. During the flight, you need to have your tablet or phone with installed PAL apps to able to access and play their online entertainments."

Pros: "The in flight meal was very. The cabin crew was friendly and gave good service."
Cons: "Legroom could have been better."

Pros: "service."
Cons: "seats not very comfortable & food... how about a hamburger or sandwich or salad- food was too heavy."

Pros: "Excellent flight... No complaint"
Cons: "Crew ver attentive but since it's an evening flight, I had perfect sleep"

Pros: "the flight attendant service, politeness and attentiveness."
Cons: "PAL - Philippine (airlines) ALWAYS Late!!! all of my flights from HNL to MNL to MNL to SINGapore to MNL and back to HNL were delayed!"

Pros: "I like the flight times if they depart on time."
Cons: "They were 4hrs late and I missed my connecting flight. Ground staff said don't worry someone will assist you and provide a free flight. After arriving in Manila, they ground staff said sorry nothing we can do, it's impossible. I was stranded thanks to PhilAir delays and they refused to help me. I was on time to the airport, they were delayed big time and wouldn't help when they have the ability to help."

Pros: "Boarding was ok Crew was great and very friendly Entertainment was ok on the flight there there was tv in the head rest on the way back there was none you had to have your own devices and watch over the planes WIFI"
Cons: "When I was boarding my carry on was 2 kg over and they wanted to charge me $100 with no other option just pay the money or throw your things away. On both flights going a and coming there was no way to charge your devices I.E. plugs or USB ports... This become much more important with flights don't have tv in the headrests and you have to use your own devices to watch movies over the planes WIFI The food is airplane food and being a cheap airline it's worse than most."
