Food was not upto the mark. Boarding at Boston and Doha was chaotic. Overall experience was not up to the mark

Food was not upto the mark. Boarding at Boston and Doha was chaotic. Overall experience was not up to the mark

0nline Check in experience was worst so far. Impossible to change preassigned seats so that the three family members to sit together. Kept asking for payment. Finally a kind check in supervisor intervened to seat two the three together

More space to sitting!!!!

flight was hour late and connection was tight. Not much help from ground crew to get through security and across the airport to the connecting flight.

Overall good experience with just the JetBlue Qatar should have kept the checked in luggage at the Boston Airport while rebooking the missed connection to MSP. That made it extra hard on passengers to carry their luggage to hotel and back and check-in again.

Food is good and tasty. Service also good.

Nice

Pros: "good service, good food"
Cons: "staff could be more cheerful towards travellers"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."
Pros: "The flight went fairly smooth, the staff were courteous and the food was as good as can be expected of airline food. There were several courses and options, which is always appreciated."
Cons: "My 17 yr old son is stranded in Doha because Qatar cancelled his connection to Nairobi which is unprofessional and terribly worrisome . I, his mother, am in Greece with no way ofhelping him get to Kenya. Qatar offers no restitution and no help . The worst situation right now!"

Pros: "Service offered by crew, arranged veg food when found not listed. Boston to Doha veg food loading needs improvement."
Cons: "Wait time at Doha for next flight."
Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Flight was two hours late from Boston to Doha. Not once were we told about the length of delay or what we need to do about connecting flights. And toilets were very smelly right from the start as it seemed that itinerary has seeped into the floor over time. And there were only two items as a main course and one of them in very small quantity. I was told that too many veg main courses were loaded by mistake and very few non veg."
Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food."
Cons: "We arrived 2 hours and 40 minutes late due to technical issues with the aeroplane. We were kept informed and we arrived safely, so this is a nibir complaint."
Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."
Pros: "I like that the air stewards bring you water and drinks throughout and don't judge you for being too thirsty. I like that they respect that it is a night flight and serve the meal quickly so it can be dark for the whole flight and you can sleep as much as you can. I like how efficient the layover is in Doha - only 40mins!"
Cons: "I don't like when they don't ask the person in front to move their chair up for the meal and the passengers have to ask each other. I don't like that they can't tell you the gate of your connecting flight and how long it will take to get you there - including if you will need to take a bus and the train. I think this could reduce a lot of anxiety. If they could do this, it would also be helpful to let people who have a connecting flight that is boarding in the next 30 mins off the plane first. This would save pushing and shoving in the aisles... and would also reduce anxiety about booking a flight with such a short layover."
Pros: "Food, service, staff at the counter"
Cons: "Cant think of any"
Cons: "I am an Emirates skywards member and I was placed in the middle seat when my preference on Emirates and Kayak is an aisle seat. After boarding it was explained to me that I couldn’t move to an aisle seat even though more than one seat was available. I asked to pay or to use miles I have accrued."
Pros: "Overall good experience, could have been better if we had got seats of our choice."
Cons: "If we could have got seats of our choice."
Pros: "First time we flew on business on international (we upgraded)."
Cons: "I haven’t received my bag yet. It’s been 4 days"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, new movies"
Cons: "Long wait after boarding before takeoff"
Pros: "Staff helpful and courteous under difficult conditions."
Cons: "People were allowed wheel chairs without a doctor'snote. 59 wheel chairs passengers is ridiculous. Make it a requirement wheel chair assistance required a doctor's note. And check hand luggage weight. Many bags excceeded the limit."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Attentive crew. Good entertainment options"
Cons: "The toilet had no toilet paper so I used the paper hand towel and prayed it did not block when I flushed. The beef option was not that great. I should've chosen the chicken."
Pros: "The pre-boarding, courtesy extended, everything was good. No complaints."
Cons: "The long hop because of my age"
Cons: "The airline’s insistence on keeping a passenger limited to only one carry on bag and then weighing to make sure that each carry on item was only 7 kilos was just plain ridiculous."

Cons: "Seat cushions are horrible There is no padding. 'All the chairs dirty too. Decor was very old"
Pros: "Crew went out of their way to be friendly"
Pros: "The amenities in Business Class were excellent - the seat was luxurious and you could actually catch some sleep. The food was gourmet and the staff was very attentive. They made a small mistake and forgot to serve me dessert but the mistake was remedied immediately when I informed them of the slip up."
Cons: "I paid a LOT of money for a Business Class seat and yet I was never notified that my flight was going to be delayed in departing by 12+ hours until after I arrived at the airport. According the the flight crew, they were notified at 9am that morning and the airline had my phone number and email, yet I arrived at the airport at 8pm because I was never notified! I spent $50 to take a taxi to the airport and now I had a 10am departure the following morning! I was given no compensation for this massive issue. Just "sorry, come back tomorrow!" I was very upset! My choices were either take ANOTHER $50 taxi home that night and then another $50 taxi back in the morning or get a $150 hotel room at the airport. So glad I paid THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS for my Business Class seat (a big spend for me as I've never flown Business Class before but felt like a special treat for a special occasion). WTF, Emirates!"
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "wifi wasn't good - I couldn't connect. Wine choice wasn't good (white). Would have preferred a sav blanc"
Pros: "The selection of tv shows and movies was excellent. Very diverse. The crew were also very responsive to anything we asked (water, questions, etc...) They gave me good advice regarding my connecting flight."
Cons: "The plane was an older model, so the touch screen was a bit unresponsive. Our tvs were shut off for the first two hours because of a glitch."
Cons: "Seats elbow room was insufficient."
Pros: "not so many people in my flight, the crew were so nice and very helpful."
Cons: "first meal was bad,I requested low fat meal and they gave me the beef something which was meh!"
Pros: "Crew v good"
Cons: "Food .. Fish undercooked ... Aircraft bit dated"
Pros: "Food and service are excellent"
Pros: "Cosmetics kit is of high quality. Airport pick up and drop off."
Cons: "Seats are not wide enough and uncomfortable for business class. Not many food options. TV remote is not intuitive. When seat is turned into bed, it is not 100% flat, and has some elevation. Cannot comfortably speak with co-passenger due to privacy board that doesn't come down fully. TV positioning is not ergonomical and co-passenger's TV screen is too bright when trying to sleep."
Pros: "Lovely online and phone customer service reps. Comfy flight with good entertainment (tv)."
Cons: "My baggage (x3) was delayed 3 days, which was frustrating to say the least. I received no apology email or flight discount/refund/coupon, etc."

Cons: "Switching of terminals to Fly Dubai"
Cons: "Had a tough time to get a replacement ticket."

Pros: "There were a lot of different movies to watch. Also, the food was real good."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Touch screen at seat was not responsive. Took many presses on the screen to get it to respond."
Pros: "Very friendly, courteous service. Boeing 777, spacious and quiet aircraft."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "No organization, had trouble in check in. On Boston airport we had to do passport check there was a long queue. Nobody was answering any questions. I think direct flights from Emirates are outstanding but the code share with Jet Blue did not work for me. For food there was Hindu meal option which did not specify veg or non veg we were served lamb but FYI Hindu meal means no beef and could be veg or non veg which does not make sense. Emirates should clarify that. So we ate nothing on our flight to Dubai."
Pros: "My flight was very comfortable, and the staff was very attentive."
Cons: "I was not able to choose my seat for this flight"
Pros: "Food was delicious. Lots of free movies. There was even a ton of entertainment options I didn't try, so I am sure there is something for everyone."
Cons: "The headphones jack required the two prong kind, which I did not have. But they provide headphones free, so it wasn't that big of a deal."
Pros: "Probably the most serene and comfortable public transportation experience I've ever had. And have had a lot of really miserable experiences traveling so this really stood out. The variety of entertainment options, the free alcohol, pleasant staff, clean bathroom, plus no one was sitting next to me which was really awesome, although I suppose not really Emirate's doing. A+++++ will most definitely take Emirates again"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Very small boarding area to board such a large plane. Broken headphone jacks on all the seats. Flight ran out of food options. Toilets ran out of soap. Overall comfort of the seat was mediocre at best. It took about 2.5 hours to serve the first meal. By the time we got our dinner, it was 1am (flight took off at 10)."
Pros: "the crew is the best thing about this airline. they are professional, helpful and seem to like their jobs - excellent across the boards flight times to and from Dubai - excellent from boston I will likely use this service again"
Cons: "for all the hype about how this airline is a "luxury" class airline their seats in economy were the same as everyone else's. Not every comfortable for long halls. They could have a premium economy like British Airways does and I bet it would be popular. The business class was also sub-par. We sat behind it and I could see that they did not even go to flat beds-- Turkish airlines (I hate to say this) was far better. for the cost of a business class ticket $4500 - it should be a lot better) also food quality was ok - not great entertainment - not a huge variety for those who just want something mindless - the movies were ok not great."
Pros: "Need Halal food"
Cons: "Need more Halal food"
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Luggage lost, unhelpful Kigali Helpdesk. Johannesburg VERY helpful"
Pros: "The two check in bags rule."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Customer services"
Cons: "Time was never kept. we had a delay in LGW for more than 2 hrs. I had a 17hrs layover in Kigali. I was not aware that i would not be booked in a hotel to rest. I had to make my own arrangements. And another extended delay out of Kigali to Nairobi"
Pros: "Well organized on check in. Attentive"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "New plane, fresh feel. Food is ok."
Cons: "Airline feels basic and no frills."
Pros: "Took the newly opened route between Cape Town and Harare. Was a great experience. Thanks to RwandAir it is easier and cheaper to fly directly between these African cities. Lots of potential on the route. RwandAir really opening up business and leisure opportunities much needed in these areas. Nice to avoid Tambo airport."
Cons: "Both flights were slightly delayed (which happens), information about the delay could be better at Harare airport. But no biggy."
Cons: "No vegetarian option Bad boarding procedures, no one gets direction and it was very slow"
Cons: "THERE WAS MEAT INSIDE MY "VEGETARIAN" MEAL!!! This is totally unacceptable!"
Pros: "Food and in-flight services"
Cons: "Entertainment package"
Pros: "Rwanda Air is the best"
Cons: "Landing at Kigali was bit rough"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Pros: "I think that I appreciated all the details during the trip. As I get my kayak app in my IPhone, i firstly received a notice that the check in started.... At each step, I could see the time discounted through my phone"
Cons: "As I said, I liked everything. From the departure to the landing"
Cons: "My luggage was broken into and stolen. They sawed off the zip on my suitcase and broke the handle. Stole a number of personal items including a belt, perfume, t-shirts and cash."
Pros: "Food and free WiFi. Ample seating space."
Cons: "Rerouted through Dar-es-Salaam at last minute rather than being a direct flight as scheduled"
Pros: "They respect the timing"
Cons: "The luggage escalator is not working and you have to carry it from one point to another..."
Pros: "Fligh was on time, front desk staff were very helpfful, flight staff were friendly"
Pros: "That there were not many people on the second leg and that the plane was clean"
Cons: "The fact that we had an itinerary change with an extra stop (unannounced until 15 minutes before I boarded the flight) that delayed us by 1+ hours, that we were delayed from leaving Kigali by 1.5 hours and none of the crew could explain what was going on, that the rwandair staff was rude. I mean... It's Rwanda so I didn't expect much customer service (they are generally particularly bad by African, European, Asian or American standards) and I definitely wasn't impressed"
Pros: "The food initially given at 2:00am IST was really good and so I didn't even have to wake up again to eat."
Cons: "The breakfast was not as appetizing."
Pros: "The Airbus. The crew's simple commitment to excellent service"
Cons: "The unconventional check in closure 90mins to departure even when the plan arrived late"
Pros: "Nice blankets. Good service."
Cons: "Food wasn't that great and juices were very sweet (tasted like sugar water)"
Pros: "Good and clean planes, good service"
Cons: "We had couple of ours delay and not well communicated"
Pros: "Nice comfortable new planes."
Cons: "There wasn't much not to like."
Cons: "We incurred significant extra costs (visas, taxi, hotel costs) because Rwandair changed our flights around from what we had originally booked, with no compensation or help navigating the visa process."
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent snacks and entertainment options"
Pros: "New airline. Left 20 mins early."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "The food options were unclear- they didn't announce what was in each meal, aside from the type of meat. It wouldn't kill you to have a vegetarian option on hand either, especially since your website doesn't work."
Pros: "the snack was terrific!"
Pros: "What did you like? the attendants were very kind"
Cons: "The airline moved my original non-stop flight forward by 3 hours. The new flight conflicted with another flight I had earlier in the day. The airline would not allow me to cancel the flight, and could only offer me a 1-stop flight that arrived at my destination hours after my initial flight would have arrived."
Cons: "Reservation was not honored, and only 3 prople out of 5 get boarding. Airline did not provided any other alternative and our friends had to cancel tour and return home!"
Pros: "Overall comfort and staff friendliness"
Cons: "Landing was a bit turbulent"
Pros: "Rwanda air crew"
Cons: "Lagos international airport"
Pros: "New plane, friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seating, poor signage & boarding announcements"
Pros: "Like Kigali it was clean and efficient."
Cons: "Food is almost inedible"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Time management"
Cons: "No entertnainment"
Pros: "Planes were great and flight crew excellent."
Pros: "movie dinner on each leg of the flight"
Cons: "the movie didn't finish in the first leg and they didn't show it for the second leg, so I never learned the ending the flight arrived 40 minutes late"
Cons: "Too cold on the plane - way, way too cold"
Cons: "We were delayed by 1 hour because more cargo was being loaded on to the plane. When we arrived in Kigali, we found that our bags had been left behind to make room for other cargo. We arrived and checked in well before the 1 hour cutoff and we were under the weight limit, so there was no reason for our baggage to be left behind. We were informed that our bags would NOT be delivered to us at our next destination, that the burden was on us to retrieve them AND there was no stipend or any type of refund to compensate us for the inconvenience. Since we were continuing our travel by road to Uganda, we had to pay extra to have a driver return to the airport the next day to retrieve and deliver our bags. This is very, very poor customer service!"
Pros: "RwandAir flew us to Nairobi instead and I thought that was good of them to make that change for us. The above evaluation pertains to the flight to Nairobi."
Pros: "Clean planes"
Cons: "Ground crew at NBO - Rwanda Air has Kenyan Airways do the work in the terminals. Bad idea!"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant. The flight was comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, causing me to miss a connecting flight. Boarding was a bit confusing as multiple flights were departing from Kigali airport at the same time and same airline. Information was not conveyed clearly and it might have been easy to begin boarding the wrong flight."
Pros: "The flight times were perfect and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The food was just ok"
Pros: "Orderly, organized, courteous"
Pros: "Very professional - gave us a good meal - although flight was a little more than an hour. Will recommend to friends"
Cons: "Service & good landing"
Cons: "The arrival time was stated as 1:40pm but in reality it was a 1:10pm arrival so I had arranged my driver to collect at the wrong time and he wasn't there when I arrived."
Pros: "They have great food, amazing crew, great customer care.."
Cons: "No entertainment, some few crew members has a bit of an attitude."
Cons: "baby food could have been served baby bassinet installed only after asking multiple times"
Pros: "M"
Pros: "Yes everything was perfect"
Cons: "Everything including food was excellent"
Pros: "The food and the selection of movies"
Cons: "Nothingn"
Pros: "customer service was great and the food :)"
Pros: "Every thing normal and in time"
Cons: "Food was everage"
Cons: "No usb chargers on plane"
Pros: "good people /service, good food and comfortable seating nice experience all in all"
Pros: "Turkish Airlines offers an experience much better than your average two-hour plane hop in the U.S. There was a full meal served, staff were kind and didn’t try to sell a bunch of extra stuff to you, and there were many choices for in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the children on the plane were really poorly behaved and loud. In addition, the flight was delayed by 1 full hour and when we arrived in Vienna our luggage (and the luggage of many other passengers) had not been sent with us. We waited in line for luggage for 30 minutes, then another line for at least 30 more minutes to report the missing bag, and we were then told that it wouldn’t arrive for another day and would be delivered to us within a 3 hour window in the middle of the day. This was essentially an entire night and day lost to a mishap that the airline didn’t even notify us of when we landed. Pretty frustrating."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Waited on the plane for a while before takeoff"
Pros: "Great entertainment, good seat comfort (even in economy seat), good food and friendly service."
Pros: "The crew are very friendly and in general and the flight was very nice"
Cons: "Need to have a bigger seats"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."
Pros: "The hot stewardess. She not only was gorgeous she smelled fantastic. What a treat to look at! Hire more beautiful women. Fire the fat ones."
Cons: "No where to stash my legs. Why bother to have feet, knees and legs while flying. While flying economy class, airlines should require amputation of legs at the hip. You should just do it because at the end of a long flight your legs will fall off anyhow. They will be rotten and full of ganggreene from no blood flow."
Pros: "Route"
Cons: "crew was so helpful"
Pros: "Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. They fed us and gave us blankets and pillows and slippers. They were lots of movie and tv choices. It was a very pleasant experience."
Pros: "Turkish Airlins is so wonderful, and I really appreciate being treated like a human being at IST (unlike Schipol, De Gaulle, other airports to connect at around Europe)."
Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Staff friendly. Great selection of movies."
Cons: "Dinner was really poor experience. However I guess it is a matter of taste (pun intended)."
Pros: "Food was good but needs bigger portion."
Cons: "Not many choice for drinks, some fly attendance need to know smiling is good ."
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "wifi was announced but did not work"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Comfort, service, food"
Pros: "Pleasant, very standard flight, arrived safely."
Cons: "Flight time left origin very very late at night, would suggest to leave earlier in the day"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Seats too narrow and no leg room."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Crew were rude and everything we asked for was an issue like we didn't exist not sure if they had a problem because we had a baby with us"
Pros: "Attentive crew, great food including perfect attention to our pre-arrangement for vegan meals. Good entertainment selection."
Cons: "No wifi at Istanbul airport."
Pros: "Everything was very good"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Great food! Also, the selection of movies and TV and other entertainment choices was wide. Seats weren't bad for an overnight flight."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Very professional. Also the transfer in Istanbul was very easy."
Cons: "I felt cramped in my seat. the footrest, rather than helping, got in the way of extending my legs."
Pros: "The entertainment and accommodations were superb. I appreciate all the things they think of to make you comfortable. The seats were a bit hard but they reclined nicely."
Cons: "The first delay during my trip was due to an emergency but my layover was delayed again. I'm not sure if this is an outlier event or if this is a pattern."
Cons: "Internet"
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. Helped us with luggage. Also, the food was excellent and abundant."
Cons: "There was not enough milk while they know there is alot of kids"
Pros: "Food, service, comfort packs."
Cons: "Not much Very decent efficient operation Always room for improvement"
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Cons: "Worst wheel chair service"
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Rich food and beverages menu. Rich and updated entertainment on board. Crew is polite and service is good."
Cons: "When boarding no air ventilation on board, so air is hot like sauna. After departure air condition is excellent."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "I was nervous to fly Turkish Airlines; however, the crew was professional and the experience was very positive. I felt safe and well cared for."
Cons: "Istanbul connection could have been smoother. The process was not efficient or clear. It worked; and I navigated it, but it could be improved."
Cons: "not all the crew spoke English"
Pros: "The Air hostess are aware of what they are doing, they can manage extra requests from different people."
Cons: "The workers at the boarding they don't have good language to new people they think every one should know every thing about Turkish schedule and other information, It is a little bit strange to have no where to sit at Instambul Airport while having wheel chairs for sick people after bringing them at the waiting place where do you think they will be sitting."
Pros: "Loved the seating space"
Cons: "I was traveling with my sister and the lady's who gave us our boarding pass had trouble with our tickets and sat us separate."
Pros: "good selection of movies free drinks"
Cons: "food was not too good"
Cons: "Delayed a couple hours."
Pros: "Almost everything. Food ..."
Cons: "Was great overall."

Pros: "Arrived early, nice bus. Class lounges"
Cons: "Friendly flight attendants, more comfort . Better food. Faster service"
Cons: "Movies"
Pros: "I enjoying having an aisle seat plus two empty seats next to me. I appreciated that you are conserving plastic cups. Keep up the conservation!"
Cons: "All of our luggage was lost and did not arrive in Prague"
Cons: "Tv screen didn’t work very well. ( picture was fine but the function buttons were terrible)."
Pros: "The crew on the jet were fine. The entertainment was good too."
Cons: "The crew at checkin we’re pretty awful. They were rude and not very helpful. I witnessed 3 customers have poor service in front of me and then they weren’t helpful with me either. The plane changed and I had paid for a seat and I lost my money and the seat I paid for and was never notified."
Pros: "I have never been treated so poorly by counter people in my life!"
Cons: "After 2 hour delay, the flight was cancelled. NO ONE helped to find another flight. After waiting in line for 2 hours, the ticket agent handed me a card and said I had to call the 800 number. The person on the phone said I had to talk to ticket agent to go standby on a flight to Munich and the ticket agent told me I had to call. I was caught in a loop and no one helped. Then when it became apparent I wasn't getting out that night I was informed that there were no hotel vouchers and I would have to find my own hotel! After searching for an hour for a hotel (all were sold out in Boston) I called a friend who lives outside of Boston. No one gave me a taxi voucher because it was not to a hotel. LUFTHANSA customer service is the WORST!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Cuteous service"
Cons: "Seats were to close together, nomlegroom, impossible when set in front reclined. Breakfast food meager."

Cons: "I wasn’t offered earphone headset so I could not enjoy entertainment."

Pros: "Sandwiches seeved"
Cons: "Plane was 1/2 hr late due to computer issues"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and professional"
Cons: "The seats were too cramped, no chance to sleep on an overnight flight. In fact my back was quite sore from being cramped in the seat with no leg room and no under seat room for a small backpack. I’m only 5’2”"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very friendly and professional. The food was good too. The flight was right on time."
Cons: "Break between the 2 flights of mire than 6 hours."
Cons: "I wish service could be a bit faster. Due to turbulence our second meal could not be served at all. Not sure why the passengers were not served as they were seated. Some passengers were served, some didn’t get served at all. It was a long journey coming from Boston. Imagine arriving home after 1 am without any food."
Cons: "Very little leg room, when perso in front of you reclines it’s impossible to open table"
Cons: "Comfort was good because flight was not full and I didn't have someone sitting next to me. Otherwise the seats are too cramped and crowded in Economy. Also had to call to find out if I had to pay for seat assignment. Couldn't find information on website. Had difficulty finding correct phone number and getting through to customer service."
Pros: "The service was amazing. Why can’t US carriers be like them?!"
Pros: "-Flight attendants were wonderful, courteous, and attentive to all. -The pilots kept us informed of the status of the flight -The flight departure and arrival were on time as promised."
Cons: "-nothing"

Pros: "High quality service, attentive flight attendances, as always on Lufthansa."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, easy boarding"
Cons: "Horrible food, very small, cramped seats. The cabin was extremely cold, even with my jacket on."
Pros: "It was one of the best flight experiences in my life. Flights on time and suitcases delivered immediately."
Pros: "Nice plane. On time, excellent service, great entertainment options. I almost always fly Lufthansa as it’s the best value for the price."
Cons: "Staff wasn’t particularly friendly, seats were the most uncomfortable ever"
Cons: "Stroller damaged by cargo people"
Pros: "There was nothing I liked. The walk was too long at Frankfurt"
Cons: "My granddaughter of 3 years had painful ear block and the crew was so unfriendly about it unlike other airlines that try to offer remedies."
Pros: "On time, friendly crew, efficient connection."
Cons: "Food was below average - even considering discount tourist class seat."
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised by the leg room for economy class--albeit I'm of small stature"
Cons: "Being on-board at the gate for an hour, due to a technical issue not meeting flight captain expectation"
Pros: "Comfort, food, service - all were superb."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Pros: "Perfect service from crew members. Comfortable seats. Wonderful pilots!"
Cons: "Cramped boarding area."
Pros: "Comfortable seating so it was easy to sleep. It was a night flight and I spent most of this flight, eating dinner and breakfast and sleeping. Great cabin attendants who accommodated every need without being requested."
Cons: "The check in and boarding at Logan airport was horrendous. The gate attendants didn't provide the same quality of attention and information that the inflight crew did."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was good and the crew was very nice, my flight was early and the boarding was very efficient. The meal was simple but good and warm. The plane was very new and clean."
Cons: "The seats could've been wider with more leg room, I ended up slightly squished for my flight which was from Boston to Munich"
Pros: "The check-in and boarding was fast, easy, great. The crew was very nice and good. The overall service was excellent."
Cons: "the food was on medium level compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Crew nice. Clean aircraft. Flight smooth, arrived to destination 40 min earlier. Nothing to complain except I wish there was more room for legs . Food okish, coffee / tea were good, tomato juice not good, did not try the wines. Biggest disappointed was the breakfast in quality only carbs : muffin, granola bar and tiny fruit salad where most of the fruit was frozen. But these are small things, overall a very good flight, I will definitely fly again with them. I watched a couple of movies released this year that I wanted to see. Good job Lufthansa!"
Pros: "Everything was perfectly on time. Pilots were excellent and crew very attentive."
Cons: "Food was ok"
Pros: "comfort, crew"
Cons: "long delay which made me miss my connecting flight, poor choice of on-board entertainment"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They ran out of food choices, so I had to go with mushroom pasta."
Pros: "Food wine and professional courteous staff. So much nicer than American airlines"
Cons: "A large airport with gates very far apart...connecting flights booked too closely together! I got to gate for next Lufthansa flight and was denied access"
Pros: "Dinner was good fairly interesting and wholesome. I appreciated having real silverware, albeit only 3/4 of normal size. But for an 8:35 flight, most people would have already eaten. In contrast, 'breakfast' was a muffin, small cup of sliced fruit, and a granola bar. For a flight leaving at 8:30 pm and arriving at 10 AM, I would think breakfast, not dinner, would get the emphasis. Did get some free wine with dinner."
Cons: "$35 bucks per flight leg to reserve your seat seems rude and harsh. THey don't tell you til AFTER you book the flight that seat selection is extra - spendy extra... Rude."
Pros: "Overall the flight was mostly fine. It was a huge plane, but boarding and exiting were efficiently handled by the crew. The seats were comfortable and there was sufficient leg room. Meals were totally acceptable for an international flight, and the complimentary booze was immensely appreciated."
Cons: "My biggest gripe, however, was with the malfunctioning entertainment system directly in front of my wife's seat. The screen intermittently flickered on and off, and would go black for long streches of time. Kudos to the attentive crew for trying their best to fix the device during the flight, but their efforts did not solve the problem. It was disappointing not to have a working entertainment system for such a long international flight--it would have made the experience much more comfortable and enjoyable."
Pros: "A new plane, the service was good."
Cons: "The crew was not friendly. The cabin temperature was set very high (~75f or higher) the entire flight without any individual vents for airflow, so that many passengers were uncomfortable and sweating during the flight. The food provided was poor quality (for the meal, I chose chicken which was boiled pieces of chicken without any flavor - I feed my cats better!). I will try and avoid flying this airline in the future at all costs."
Pros: "Easy boarding, except for delay leaving Munich. Crew was very accommodating, saw to every need I had. Entertainment made the 8 hour flight seem to go by faster."
Cons: "Food was not tasteful or enjoyable."
Cons: "There was no indication at Kayak that there is a charge to pick a seat before the day of the flight. I understand premium choice, but this was for every seat reservation. The seats were not very comfortable."
Pros: "Most everything"
Cons: "Flight left an hour late and with no explanation"
Pros: "The stewards were very prompt and polite. The food and wine were good"
