38 flights in KLM economy/economy plus over the past five years, and few of them have been enjoyable. Flight crew have been consistently irritable and very hostile with passengers. It truly feels like the crew has taken you hostage and torture is imminent. Sometimes I wish there were no crew and it was just self-serve. About 2 hours into any...

After having flown with a number of carriers in an out of Dubai, KLM continues to provide great service with a smile. Unlike some of the regional carriers who's cabin staff tend to look very overworked, the staff on KLM were happy, friendly, and very helpful. In flight food was above average, and seats in economy were industry standard. Premium...

My wife and I took KLM on our return trip to the USA. Big surprise, you check your our bags. Never saw one of these units in the USA. Check in was easy, security moved quickly and the flight was pleasant. Dinner and breakfast served. A good experience, we'ld fly them again.

Reasons for not flying with KLM: 1. 10 hours flight, no entertainment system during the whole flight time!!! 2. I asked for cup of water twice, they never brought me one! 3. Delayed baggage for 4 (four) days. 4. Not accepting my claim to reimburse my receipts for regular daily needs during these 4 days. I had no underwear after...

I was traveling with my family Boston-Delhi (stopover at Amsterdam), I had such a terrible experience that I wished if the trip could end quickly. Initially, when traveling to Delhi, I thought it was just matter of chance. My 2 year old son was a little cranky and unable to sleep, the flight attendant was so rude and sarcastic to...

Business class was best I have ever flown in. Flat beds comfy and food excellent. However we had gone from a 'standby' to business. Overbooking had left us as one of random picks tobe on standby. However we got on, as did all others in the end and we were among those given business class. But we 'could ' have...

KLM is the worst airline in the history of commercial aviation. This narrative sounds like bad fiction but I assure you that every word is true and after 6 days of missing our bag while travelling through Europe, as of today July 12, we still don't have our bag. We arrived in the Rome airport from Amsterdam on July 7...

We have flown this airline to Europe several times and every time has been a great experience. The food is reasonably good, the seats good. We paid the extra for the 'comfort seats' and were pleased with the additional space. What always makes these trips good is the cabin crew. Always very attentive but this time they went above and...

This was our 3rd Business- class trip with KLM, we have found them to be simply the best ! The check in is speedy and highly courteous, Schiphol airport despite being huge is super efficient with self check in and even self service baggage disposal, where you scan your flight paper, receive the baggage destination strip, affix it to your...
