Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Flight was typical."
Cons: "No direction for the connecting flight and no help to understand the connecting flights."
Pros: "I didn’t get on this flight. Due to the departure at LAX. It would’ve been nice to know that this was a possibility before the arrival.

Food was much better comparing with any other companies. The boarding time was delayed one hour, however we landed japan 2, 3 mins later than the estimated arrival time. Landing technique was beautiful. American, United, ANA which I flew caused me have a deep Earache. I didn't get any pain from this flight. I am already scared of returning flight with American airplines."

Cons: "Long, long flight, not much leg room."
Pros: "The service, food, entertainment, everything was perfect. Thanks so much"
Pros: "I've been always flying with U.S. airlines this past several years just because transits are easier. I forgot about how friendly and nicer JAL crews are. Their food is much much better. They served us with a cup of Haagen-Dazs icecream for dessert while a Fatboy is normally served by other airlines. I was impressed by how spacious the foot area of their economy seat is. Because I felt quite comfortable, I slept five hours straight during the flight which is phenomenal to me. I will definitely fly with JAL again!"
Pros: "I loved the crew, for the most part the food, and the large screen to."
Cons: "The bed was uncomfortable, in that the arm rests disappear when you lay flat the bed. A petty thing since at least it was business class, but without taking pillows from empty seats it was uncomfortable when lying on one's side and nowhere to put arms."
Pros: "Amazing service"
Pros: "Flight was all good, entertainment is great."
Cons: "It took an excessively long time for baggage to come out and the local staff was unapologetic. Well over an hour after going through immigration. The service in Narita was significantly better. I'm American and have come to accept poor service, but I can't understand why passengers must pay for a cart to carry their luggage - especially on international flights, before any opportunity to exchange currency. Surely the airlines have some say in this..."
Pros: "I liked the snack bag given at the beginning of flight. Long flights tend to dehydrate, I would like to see more bottled water available."
Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"
Cons: "Not sure how to make the seats more comfortable. I have some back issues though. However, some of my travel companions slept right through the flight."
Cons: "It's KLM. What else do you need to know."
Cons: "Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again"
Pros: "Almost everything, especially the crew."
Cons: "Don’t feel like anything should be better to be honest"
Pros: "Seats were super comfortable, bigger than most planes with extra leg room. Food was excellent and fresh, amazing Dutch cheese sampler was divine. No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."
Pros: "The crew was great. The soecial meal request was hadled well despite oversight."

Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"
Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "Everything was good except for the entertainment consul for one of our seats."

Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
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."
Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Food was good!"
Cons: "Have no complaints"
Pros: "Flight crew; legroom even in cheap seats."
Cons: "Exceptionally unhelpful customer service when asking about extra kilos/bags. Just quoted the online info back at us. We simply wanted to know how much would be charged if the bag was 1-2kgs overweight. We could not get a straight answer, just quoted the unclear company policy. Extremely frustrating and annoying. KLM offer a superior flight experience - it is a shame their terrestrial customer servic does not match it!"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "It was announced I can choose between fish and chicken meal but when I requested for fish meal, I was told it’s finished. My seat was 21, and it surprised me. If something can be changed about that then your services would be much appreciated. Thank you."
Pros: "Crew good flight was fine apart from delay due to fog in Amsterdam but kept informed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather in Amsterdam area"
Pros: "Entertainment was good, and crew was very nice and accommodating. Flight was very comfortable and smooth."
Cons: "The food was okay, not that great."
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"
Pros: "Short-hop flight, fit for purpose."
Pros: "The sandwiches were simple yet just the right touch, on all four flights."
Cons: "Long stop over at Schiphol. Too Long!!!!"
Pros: "No chargers or tv on planes"
Cons: "At Amsterdam we were told that our checkin luggage wouldn't be at Sydney!! Some low fat meals were terrible!"
Pros: "They were awesome."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Pros: "Everything was good. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The plane was comfortable, with great entertainment on the personal screens. The food was delicious. Flight was on time and actually arrived early, but then we had to wait for a gate (not the airline's fault)."
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "Same as above"
Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."
Pros: "I ended up getting home with less delay than originally predicted. I guess that's a good thing Also delta customer service was super polite and trying to help when I called"
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.."
Pros: "...The transfer at JFK was terrible"
