Nice flight

Enjoyed business class, food, comfort and the crew was great. It as if I was on a shorter trip because of the comfort. I love Qatar airways 👍👍👍👍👍

Seats were old and lanky. Food was bad, we got sick.

Pros: "Everything about the trip was great excellent customer experience"
Cons: "If I got to sit in first class coz the plane was so empty haha"
Pros: "Crew was very professional and served snacks and beverages at regular intervals. One of the fellow passengers was over reacting to some minor unintentional neglect by an female crew member and told her to shut up when she was trying to understand the issue. But the crew handled the situation very professionally."
Cons: "Food could’ve been better."
Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Another confirmation of excellent QA service."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "The tv didn’t work throughout the whole flight. Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "Flight attendand Tiessy - QR943 - 8 Jun 2019 (outbound Singapore to Doha) She serve us (with kid) very well, with plenty of smile and warm helpful gestures."
Cons: "I really hope that kid's menu can be updated/changed in the system at least 24/48hrs before flight, as that was the first time we ride Qatar (we have no idea the menu) So we only order it once during the outbound flight."
Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Was the crew amazing and nice"
Pros: "professional and courteous staff. Food is even better than a Lufthasa flights"
Pros: "Food was okay and crew was okay"
Cons: "Seats were very narrow - Etihad has better seats. Entertainment system had poor sound"
Cons: "Qatar airways claims to have inflight wifi. But it is not true because it did not work in either of my flights. Food could have been better."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"
Pros: "Too tired after almost 24 hours traveling. No complaints."
Pros: "Modern plane and great crew."
Pros: "God was good. Staff was efficient"
Cons: "Seat comfort was terrible. Too narrow. Crew were efficient but were not cordial."
Cons: "Cramped and full flight with no entertainment. Stewardesses were also talkin too much among themselves."
Pros: "Nothing about American Airlines Never ever to travel with it again"
Cons: "Passengers service bad Air hostesses just rude I Don’t even know why someone wants to work When they can’t even smile There were few seats were empty but they were offered to fellow passengers who happens to be different colors Person Then me America airline lost my family business for ever"
Pros: "The plane was virtually empty and the service was good."
Cons: "The plane from Doha to Dar was infinitely less nice than the plane from New York to Doha. It was borderline offensively unequal."
Pros: "Just that the food is quite small but the variety is OK."
Pros: "Would be very happy to fly again on qatar if options for Indian food menu is increased"
Cons: "Great service. Courteous staff. Professional and well groomed crew unlike some US carriers. Decent beverage and food offerings in biz. Badly outdated IFE system."
Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "There were no food choice when the cabin crew reach my seat all run out"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to find us vegetarian meals as our booking was incorrect. They had some good movies to watch that made the trip faster"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and one can only eat vegetable curry so many times in a day. At one point I really just wanted dry cereal because rice and curry is not breakfast in my mind"
Pros: "Staff very friendly. Loved the adjustable headrest as I am shorter and this is the first time flying that my neck was so comfortable I didn't need my travel pillow! Food was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "طيران ممتاز"
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."
Cons: "Not having available air for the center seats made our flight a truly awful experience. The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people. My wife was virtually ignored by the male crew on her side of the aircraft."
Pros: "Doha airport is easy to move through; They put me in an exit row behind a bulkhead has plenty of legroom."
Cons: "Reading light wasn't aimed properly, and there was nowhere to put anything because of it being an exit row behind a bulkhead. That meant, that I had to hold anything I wanted during take-off, and landing, and the entertainment system had to be stowed during those times as well, so I couldn't even listen to music as the only controls were the touchscreen."
Pros: "The flight left without me! Nobody called my name or came to find me while I was in the lounge!"
Cons: "The flight left without me! Nobody called my name or came to find me while I was in the lounge!"
Pros: "Service is fantastic. Comfort in business class. Great food. You can't ask for nothing better. The lounge in Doha is breath taking."
Pros: "It is an average economy flight. Crew was very attentive and helpful. Service was excellent."
Cons: "Not much to say for an economy flight. Comfort is always compromised regardless of airline. It gets worse as the flight is longer."
Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "On O-Hare Airport, Qatar Air Line's staff is very rod, I never recommend to anyone. Now if anyone ask from me then i refuse to buy Qatar Aiway ticket then they buy Emirate or other air line tickets"
Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."
Cons: "food"
Cons: "I checked in a couple of hours after checkin open but unfortunately I could not get my preferred window seat, got a middle instead. But still the leg room would have been ok but the middle seat (second row behind the bilkhead row) had the front passenger's entertainment system arranged across the footwell, not sideways, so it completely blocked the footwell and prevented any stretching of the legs. I am a tall passenger and this caused much discomfort on the flight, I had to keep getting up to walk around. I also found the seat bottom quite uncomfortable (not enough padding I think), butnghis could have been made worse by the footwell issue. Regards Neil"
Pros: "Over all service was excellent!"
Cons: "Short transfer time made it a bit stressful"
Pros: "The food and entertainment systems were good. The staff on the plane were pleasant."
Pros: "I enjoyed the staff"
Cons: "The screens were old school and I HS a hard time getting it to work Also the sleep mask I received had sticky stuff all over it when I opened the package."
Pros: "Everything was quite nice. The TV screens were working for all the seats! Though I did not give my meal preference earlier, they still accommodated my request. Doha airport is quite nice and modern. Crew was helpful."
Cons: "I wish Quatar had a direct flight between Chicago and Indian cities such as Delhi and Mumbai. I can understand that Doha is their hub, but such a flights would be really good for me as I always want to reduce my layovers. (I noticed that most travelers in my Delhi to Doha and Doha to Chicago flights were Indians, hence my request makes sense.)"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "The crew has no control over passengers. Specifically, it is the cabin supervisors responsibility to maintain order on the flight. Everyone before boarding, during boarding and during the flight kept sitting in incorrect seats, no boarding passes checked. Felt like a zoo on the airline. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Price and schedule"
Cons: "Food. Waiting place at Qatar airport. Arabian crew on board due to their non- friendly attitude."
Pros: "ok"
Cons: "Although website says you can pay online, there is no info to pay for extra baggage online. This is very misleading."
Pros: "First of all I have taken Qatar airways to Europe and US HOVER when it comes to Third world like Asia and Africa the send thier most dirty broken airline!!in thialand the pressure was not right according to pilot we stayed on the run way 4 HOURS offered water wrf.? No one communicated with US I think your airline is typical Arab mentality unless you are white I. E American you don't give a shot about your costumers this is the second arb line I droped I will never take ur plane ever!! When I got to Doha all they did was through stupid voucher for food missed my flight no apology rude as staff disgusted y their behaviour and lack of care missed imprtant meetings NEVER AGAIN RACIST AIRLINE TREAT WHITES WITH RESPECT IT NOT BLACK'?? REALLY WELL I I'LL TAKE MY MONEY AWAY THEN I will make Co viols decision to never fly with u"
Cons: "Everything racist disgustinget and never will take this airline nasty dirty broke down twice stayed in the plane for 4 hrs no one apologised"

Excellent

Pros: "Need a more improvement for the service"
Cons: "Need a proper training"
Pros: "Food was really good, staff was helpful and friendly and there was more legroom that I've often experienced. Also - flight was NOT packed - there was actually an empty mid-row seat!"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time, crew were friendly and efficient, toilets were kept clean the entire flight, seat in economy had enough leg room and recline to sleep"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment films were a bit limited"
Pros: "Good gluten free bread on Istanbul to Malta leg. Blankets are good as is amenity pack which has all but diasappeared on BA. Good choice of films"
Cons: "Foot rest in economy, gluten free meal is poor (except bread)."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over an hour causing us to miss our connecting flight. Had to wait in the airport all night and no one from Turkish airlines did anything to help us or accommodate us during our unexpected overnight layover."
Pros: "Easy check in On time Good inflight tv Good food What more can one dream for except free upgrades ??"
Cons: "Passport control in Istanbul horribly chaotic and long."
Pros: "Service food timely departure"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "E"
Cons: "The food was a far miss to my other flight from BBK to Istanbul . I know it was a different flight also being a bit tired after other flight did not help . Otherwise the were excellent ."
Pros: "Large screens, reusable dishes + silverware"
Cons: "Plane was old, felt more squished and the seats did not decline. Also very note."
Pros: "Likes: The staff were prompt and friendly. The food was more varied and imaginative than on other airlines. Also, the fact that you get a refund, without any hassle, if you need to change your travel plans, makes this airline unique."
Cons: "Suggestions: A few more centimetres of space between the rows of seats would work wonders. A piece of fruit (apple or tangerine) would add to the enjoyment of the food. A wider range and variety of movies would increase the quality of the entertainment."
Cons: "I missed my connection in Istanbul and got delayed until the next day. Because I’m a US citizen they couldn’t offer me a hotel room because US citizens can’t get visas there."
Cons: "The flight to Lviv was cancelled after 3 hours delay. All happens in life. But the only option Turkish airlines were offering is to fly the next day. I was flying to the funeral and this was not working for me (especially this was their second flight to Lviv cancelled - 2 in a row). The transfer desk didn't inform that there were two other flights going the same day of other airlines. When i approached to help me to go with a different airline the personal was very rude saying they will not help transferring the luggage and that they can't unload the luggage sooner than 3 hours after you go out of the security and passport control. When i asked to book to a different destination in Ukraine. It took 50 min at the desk to do it. Simply because 4 people at the desk were laughing and joking and nobody was concerned about the queue of over 40 people staying. After 30 min it turned out they've lost my boarding pass and it took 15 min to find it as one of the transfer guys managers simply took it to a different room... At the end when they found it it took only 5 min to do the work. I would appreciate more information from the desk about available flights and more support to manage the situation. I'm happy that people at the transfer desk are so joyful and happy it obviously helps to deal with the stressed passengers whose flight was cancel."
Cons: "It was a struggle to get our hotel from the turkish hotel desk crew. We were travelling from Cape Town to Toronto with a little baby and had a layover of approx 10 hours at Istanbul. They claimed that our layover was 9 hr 40 mins (and not 10 hours) and I had to argue before we finally got a transit hotel. Their customer service is poor."
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."
Cons: "Despite having seats assigned we did not fly Customer service was just awful dealing with overbookings"
Pros: "Food okay"
Cons: "TV/Movie/music were not working. The temperature in the plane was very hot throughout flight."
Cons: "The people smell very bad !!"
Pros: "Being able to stretch out and get some real rest makes a huge difference for me when trying to cope with time zone change west coast to Europe. Overall great experience"
Pros: "Flight was delayed. Flight time was changed 5 times."
Pros: "the crow"
Pros: "Extras provided - eye mark, socks etc"
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. My husband and I were moved to a middle aisle (although we really didn't want to share) only to find that the foot rest at my foot rest was also faulty. It was an uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "The food and beverage selection, as well as the service in business class was excellent. Initially I dreaded the long layover of 8 hours. But I found the Turkish Airlines Business Lounge. It was so spectacular that I didn't want to leave it. I found a small movie theatre equipped with leather oversized recliners and slept. I was told that the 2 story lounge is 6000 square meters."
Cons: "The business class seating is old and not as comfortable as the newer herring bone configurations. Privacy could be improved."
Pros: "Seatback entertaininment options were amazing. Food wasn't always designed for the American palette, but most of it was pretty good, and they put a good effort into it, unlike US carriers. Flight attendants were great. Boarding was organized and smooth."
Cons: "It's just hard to make a 14 hour flight in economy comfortable. Another inch or two of space would have helped, but I understand the tradeoffs involved in that. Baggage collection at IAH took about 30 minutes, but that may have been the airport's fault and not the airline's."
Pros: "Great comfort and speedy service of beverage and breakfast"
Cons: "They didn't pick up the dishes fast"
Pros: "Food was tasty and fresh but staff cold and aloof"
Cons: "The "Pasta-cheeze" meal on TK 31 was horribly bland, reminded me of the gruesome meals I had on United Airlines. I was totally shocked, because all other meals were excellent."
Pros: "Food was pretty good."
Cons: "Crew was disorganized. Half the plane didn't get the bread that was supposed to be on the breakfast menu. Service was slow and not enough crew. Also had to wait 30 minutes to use the bathroom because the crew told me I couldn't go into the one I was already in line for and the other one was being cleaned. Seats were more cramped than most airlines (and I'm short)."
Pros: "I did like it"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Cabin temperature too high, the flight attendants borderline rude and always on a hurry, I mean what's the hurry durin a 12:30 hours long haul flight. Turkish airlines has decreased its quality of service."
Pros: "Boarding ontime and hospital crew. I appreciate and big thanks to the transfer desk at Istanbul."
Cons: "I was about to loose my walker which I was supposed to receive when I get from the aircraft in Istanbul but the lady at the transfer desk helped me find it. After I bought the ticket it was offered 24 hours later at very much Lowe price ( 25%less than what I paid for). I contacted the Turkish airlines but they never give me any credit or compensation."
Pros: "Service, food, entertainment is off the charts!"
Cons: "Seat comfort and legroom in Economy is below standards for even a domestic flight. Flew for over 21 hours on two concurrent flights and I was almost insane. Last leg was on Jet Blue and I felt like I was in First Class with their leg room and seats."
Cons: "I asked the website to change the destination. The reply came 12 hours before the flight. I couldn't wait so i took another flight and paid for another ticket."
Pros: "I always enjoy flying with Turkish airlines it is a breeze from check in all the way destination from food to entertainment it all runs so smooth I will fly with u any day so far that is the best"
Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"
Pros: "the plain is good and there is a big space for the legs. the crew is helpfull"
Cons: "1. There was a delay on the flight from Barcelona to SAW (Turkey) of 2.5 hours. Turkish Airline didn't update us at any time what and why is the delay problem . Due to this, we missed the connetcion flight to Tel Aviv.They took us to another air port(Attaturk) in Istanbul (1.5 hour driving) . They gave us only food vaucher and no compensation for the overall delay(7 hours!!!) 2.Icoud not order a Cosher foo at all TK flights web sitr. WHY ??? 3.the Entertainment is very poor. only one movie and no subtitlse .Music is wired."
Pros: "The crew is super. The food is good and the entertainment system is almost perfect (free WiFi will make it the best ever)"
Cons: "legs space, legs space and legs space. I will hesitate to pick up turkish only because of that. in long flights there are a lot of satisfaction factors but this is the most important one for me. if I have to get up every 20 min to stretch, it is not working."
Pros: "Food, tv, service. Food is good quality and they serve a lot. Good drinks too."
Cons: "Not a lot of leg room in coach..but thats normal for most airplanes."
Pros: "Love the entertainment choices, behind able to watch while seasons of TV shows, new movies. Makes the time pass easily."
Cons: "When you are doing a long flight, you don't want fruit to be the only choice for dessert. It's hard enough being gluten free but to find that nearly every airline just thinks that fruit is acceptable is disappointing. They did provide a gluten free bread roll rather than the usual rice cakes but on two recent legs, didn't heat it. When I told the flight crew the second time that it is inedible when not heated, he was great and said he would do that. And it is nice to eat grilled vegetables which are delicious but sometimes particularly on a long flight, a bit more variety is needed. Turkish Airlines is excellent but fixing this would make it great."
Pros: "Service was great food and drink"
Cons: "The air conditioner was not on, it was too hot in the plane."
Pros: "I just liked the entertainment. I watched couple of movies comfortably. That's it."
Cons: "Foods are not so good, standard. Crews didn't smile. They don't smile why? They don't Greet. Very poor service."
Pros: "Excellent price, food, staff, and accommodations! Highly recommend Turkish Airlines!!!"
Pros: "entertainment"
Cons: "Seating too narrow"
Cons: "Lack of meal options for second meal and under cooked meals."
Pros: "You can easily trust Turkish Air to get you there on time and in relevant comfort. The staff are very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "The plane was a bit more cramped than for example, Singapore air. I also thought the boarding could be improved significantly by calling groups. Even though it was a small flight, the boarding was a bit of mayhem due to the fact that we had to shuttle to the plane."
Cons: "I was not allowed the cancel my flight. I lost a lot of money and I will never book through or fly Turkish airlines again. They were rude and had terrible customer service."
Pros: "Really amazing service."
Cons: "Food has room to improve."
Pros: "The airline staff were professional and welcoming. The airplane was comfortable relatively speaking."
Cons: "From New York to Turkey, my connecting flight left before we arrived which made me almost a day late in reaching Cairo; big inconvience. They need to do a better job with timing connecting flights. Turkey to New York, the flight went smooth"
Pros: "Great food and serivice!"
Cons: "The fact we have to embark by bus!"

Space was very poor and earphones awful. Mixed on staff, some good, some bad!

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Never returned my money when the flight was canceled"
Cons: "The entertainment did not work good the entire flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were stellar--polite, respectful, helpful, attentive. I want to particularly commend the attendant who, after I notified her that someone was very ill in the adjacent bathroom, stood discreetly nearby and offered the person a glass of water when he emerged. Very considerate."
Cons: "The transfer was a horrible, stressful experience. We knew it as a short connection but Lufthansa had accepted it. On our outward bound flight three weeks earlier, we were all met and escorted swiftly by a flight attendant from the first leg plane (EWR-MUN) to the second leg plane (MUN-Nice) to ensure that we all made it onboard. Impressive. On our return journey, no such luck! No attendant to meet us, and a huge line at immigration, full of panicked and stressed-out passengers jockeying for position, with no-one from ANY airline there to do a triage for those with the shortest connections. Ridiculous. In addition, the passport-scanning machines were very slow and quirky. My own passport was rejected because there was no evidence I had passed through Munich on my outward bound journey!! RIDICULOUS. I managed to slip through to a human being and begged the immigration officer to let me go through with my husband, who had had no such problem. The officer told me he could not find a stamp from my earlier transit through!!! Eventually I suppose he did because he let me through. The stamp was there, I found it, but it had been sloppily applied and was half off the page...hence the rejection by the scanner. We made the flight by minutes. NOT GOOD! Surely Lufthansa could do better in their own country???"
Cons: "Beef main course overcooked and dry."
Pros: "Planes were comfortable and well maintained."
Cons: "crew and knowledge on parent control for video, kids safety jacket not distributed and no knowledge or help on connecting flights and no knowledge on car seat use in flight (i was told it was NOT safe to have the child in the car seat for take off and landing)"
Pros: "good crew ok food for airline"
Cons: "despite an outrageous price we had problems registering our luggage economy light never heard of it"
Pros: "Everything was really good. Crew was helpful and provided excellent customer service. Food provided was good."
Cons: "The only thing that would have been better was cooler air in the cabin. I got very hot on both my flights to and from Frankfurt."
Pros: "Flight attendant served snacks and drinks in less than hour’s flight. Well done!"
Pros: "Even though it was economy class, I was able to sleep because it was very comfortable."
Cons: "Not sure, I slept the whole flight."
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Delayed departure resulting in missed connection. 2 hours in lineup and ‘service’ from Lufthansa. Rebooked through Zürich with overnight there - had to find own hotel as they said all the ones on their list were booked. Will not be using this airline for a long time ( they lost our luggage for 4 da"
Cons: "No TV in the chair ,even no group TV The the crew member in the business class lady was too aggressive in her way as if we are working for her , too tide chairs"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the seats are v comfortable"
Cons: "I cant really think of anything"
Cons: "Touch screens were not working well. Required multiple hard taps which disturbed the passenger in front."
Pros: "Despite the short flight we were still given food and as always I love airline food. Free alcohol is always a bonus as well! Nice crew and timely take offs and landings. Could bring two hand luggage (backpack and suitcase) which I like even though I didn't have to pay extra!"
Cons: "No negatives."
Pros: "I liked the crew and how friendly they were. Pilots were great too. Wished they would have taken the same consideration ind DFW. The lady at the counter sent me to the wrong gate and left me there for over one hour then told me oops I forgot to tell you the gate changed. You need to hurry your flight leaves out of terminal E17 I was in c37"
Cons: "When the employee made me miss my flight (accidentally). Also on our flight I couldn’t watch a movie because the electronics did not work."
Pros: "Food & entertainment were good;"
Cons: "Seats were very tight, several crying babies (no fault of airline) making it difficult to sleep"
Pros: "Good customer service"
Cons: "Seat was not comfortable and food was not great"
Pros: "Easy boarding. Nice crew. Good leg room"
Cons: "The seat was so hard and my seat back was broken so I could not recline. I paid extra for these seats and it was not comfortable."
Pros: "Excellent service and friendly staff!"
Cons: "It was very cold"
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The usual flight discomfort, but the seat in front of me was broke. The person in it struggled to stay out of my lap, which I appreciated. The connecting flight had a non-functional screen and the reading light broke and flew across the cabin."
Pros: "The crew helped my mom very much with her ansiery and were with her at all times."
Cons: "I bought the flight for my mom and she is handicap, the flight got delayed and they wanted to leave her in Frankfurt for 2 days because there was no more flights to the States, in the end they found a flight to Washington DC, she was coming to Miami. She is an old woman who gets lost and I had to order assistance for her, in Washington DC they opened her bags after that they lost the bags, she had medication on them and it was a nightmare to get them back. Im really upset and I don’t think That I’m going to book with this aero line again."
Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Always the same mess in Frankfurt to get into terminal Z, surely waited 30 minutes and almost lost connection. Food quality mediocre at best. Lost luggage, no Lufthansa representative around at baggage claim."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good leg room, pleasant staff"
Cons: "We were late arriving in Prague and then waiting for my luggage only to realise after waiting till the very last luggage THAT my luggage was left in Frankfurt and I didn’t get it til 21.00hrs - totally ruining my plans for my first night in Prague!!!!"
Cons: "The food. I don't eat many food and the wasn't much selection."
Pros: "Crew was warm and considerate."
Cons: "Flight was jam packed and a huge guy sat next to me and made my entire flight miserable. In economy, huge guys are a big inconvinience as they spill over your space (which is already cramped). The passenger in front pushes her seat back and when i do the same, someone from behind says it makes them uncomfortable. Wish crue can take care of these situations."
Pros: "Adequate room Complimentary beer"
Pros: "Great service, on time departure, excellent amenities"
Cons: "The flight was over before I expected it!"
Pros: "The downstairs lavatories are genius!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Professional, friendly, helpful staff, especially the Manager at Gates A17 and A18 who helped make sure I got a seat on LH011 after two other, earlier choices I had been put on were cancelled."
Cons: "Lufthansa must work on its domestic-to-international hub feeder system, which is unpredictable. E-mails were sent too late to be useful for knowing what was happening to the original LH009, then LH007 flights, both of which were ultimately cancelled, making the connection to LH400 dicey for the FRA to JFK leg of the trip. Telephone or SMS should have been used for faster contact. I had already printed boarding passes for LH009 about 20 hours before flight time and ultimately arrived at HAM two hours before flight time and thought everything was in order. It ultimately was not, and my checked baggage never made it onto the connecting flight."
Pros: "The food was great."
Cons: "There isn't much leg room."
Pros: "Loved the crew, much, much better than any American airline. Food was better than any American airline. Pleasant flight."
Cons: "My flight arrived late, and I nearly missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "Service was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "To italy united by Lufthansa had great Netflix shows, movies and better interface. This flight to Chicago was Germany based, so I understand the international choices, but there was very little to watch in the movie, tv and show categories. Otherwise all great!"
Pros: "Smooth flight. No delay, no unpleasant surprise."
Pros: "Nice airport"
Cons: "Too cramped. Pay for all food and drinks. Cheesy! Sad!!"
Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Everyone kind of ran up."
Pros: "Everything was amazing Very pleased!"
Cons: "Good choice entertainment but system is slow to respond and crashed on a few occasions"
Pros: "Made our connection, plenty of room on plane."
Cons: "Plane was late out of Budapest. Lounge at Budapest opened very late. No entertainment options."
Pros: "Despite not being able to recline my seat, I at least had room for my legs, unlike the last flight."
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. Boarding was a bit chaotic, and the constant shuttling around Frankfurt airport is just ridiculous. (Not that the airline can do anything about it)."
Cons: "I had a short transit time in Munich (40 minutes). Munich website promises that this is possible and that gates are close to each other and if the first flight is late, then someone will help you to your next flight. My first flight was about 10 mins late. Although assistance was provided to people connecting to some of the other flights, no-one helped me with my connection. I asked two ground staff and was just told to make my own way to the next gate, which was not close. It was in a different terminal! After literally running through two terminals, I did not make it to the gate in time and had to wait for the following flight which got me home over three hours late. Lufthansa did give me a five euro meal voucher though (which doesn't buy very much in an airport cafe)."
Pros: "the trip from osaka to frankfurt was excellente. the people of the crew woho serve us, were excellent. Thanks for karen kern and her colleague First time i drunk a nice wine."
Cons: "the trip from frankfurt to sao paulo wasn't so excellent. there was a difference. Unfortunatelly, lower."
Pros: "Lufthan changed aircraft and totally screwed by seat assignment, very bad."
Pros: "From Munich to Toronto, it was great, especially being seated where I wanted, the window. I was able to watch great movies too, and during a 9hr flight, thats really nice."
Cons: "The food could be better. Too salty. But it is better than nothing and it was hot! So that was good."
Pros: "comfortable seats, i like that the entire seat reclines, not just the seat back, and the TV screens can be adjusted when the person in front moves their seat. i like that water was offered several times during the flight, not just during regular drink times. the food was delicious and filling"
Pros: "The flight crew was wonderful! Friendly and really attentive the whole trip!"
Cons: "The most unpleasant flight attendants we have ever had in our flying lives. Rude, condescending, treating passengers as if we are not human. Lufthansa should carefully examine their training."

Pros: "no complaints, everything went well."

Delay. Long wait in line. Poor communications.

On my flight from Cape Town to London I was not notified that the flight had changed and missed the flight. British Airways would not help with a different flight and basically said I need to buy another ticket and fight for a refund. I need to speak with someone to get this resolved and reimbursed for the additional ticket I had to buy along with extra COVID tests I had to take, not to mention additional hotel stay and missed income from work. Please contact me as soon as possible.

It was cancelled and I was forced to buy another ticket.

Cons: "Exiting passengers from the rear exposed the entire flight as people had to walk past those seated from the back to front. Great social distancing and we'll done British Airways"
Cons: "I really did not find anything to improve, it was a pleasant flight"
Pros: "My air hostess was very friendly and kind"
Cons: "Food for vegetarians"
Cons: "This has been the most convenient way I’ve ever traveled."
Cons: "4 hs delay"
Cons: "No assistance to mothers with strollers. While boarding, picked a few people randomly to inspect our bags right before getting on a plane. Held us in a separate room including me who is single mother traveled with 2 year old for 3 flights in the row. My son didnt get his meal. Also had to ask for any juice. Horrible menu. Late food serving, but quick to clean up in a rash. Loud people on phones and nobody stopped them. Horrible experience."
Pros: "The flight was on time and landed early"
Cons: "The bags could have come out earlier and the food could be better"
Pros: "The crew members are super friendly and caring."
Pros: "On time, friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats are tight,"
Pros: "The crew were very attentive and there was a large variety of in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "I am not a heavy set guy but the seats were unreasonably close to each other, this meant that when you eat a meal your elbows push into your sides making it hard to bring food to your mouth."
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "Crew worked hard to keep to time and make passengers comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding gate crowded."
Pros: "Crew and ground staff were amazing."
Cons: "Seats. Always the seats, they need to be more comfortable and accommodating for long journeys. This is true for every airline."
Pros: "The crew were really welcoming, which is not always common on BA."
Cons: "The entertainment system is tired, and the selection could be a lot better."
Cons: "Seating is a big problem. I am only 192 cm tall and cannot really fit my legs into the space. Have them out in the corridor"
Pros: "That the flight was on time."
Cons: "not applicable."
Pros: "Nice seats and nice enough staff"
Cons: "Delays, no information provided and no water provided while we were waiting to depart. 1 hour delay (57 mins to be precise....)"

Pros: "Friendly crew and a good value for money flight"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride but this wasn’t anyone’s fault"
Pros: "I appreciated the courteous crew and the blankets. I appreciate the safe trip."
Cons: "Plane was delayed and I didn't like the $60 baggage check in fee. That's ridiculous. Airplane comfort in economy class is always medium. The main gripe is the $60 cost for the one suitcase."
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Cons: "Entertainment system getting a bit long in the tooth on 747. Hot breakfast could have done with some colour"
Pros: "BA in South Africa run a clean efficient airline. Planes are new crew well trained and food is good."
Cons: "Preseating totally random no matter your status. Booked state of my choice well in advance and was presented at the back of the plane on check-in"
Cons: "There was a charg for ALL drinks & food! This made the service process quite long & cumbersome."
Pros: "No hassle with hand luggage"

Pros: "Plane kept to time schedule fabulous"
Cons: "Traveling economy"

Cons: "There should still be more leg room in coach. The screen in just my seat had a "loose connection", as it was a bit blurry sometimes -- enough to be annoying, but I still watched a movie OK. No other screens around me had the problem; they were crystal-clear."
Pros: "On time. Efficient"
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "Efficient processes. All went to plan"
Cons: "Tight seating. Old plane. Entertainment screen sub par"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding."
Cons: "The way that the crew (both in economy on right of plane) spoke to, and handled sensitive situations with several of the passengers in a loud and rather rude manner. This is not the British way that I have been accustomed to on previous BA flights, and is rather upsetting. The crew were very abrupt in general, and did not have that seasoned and polite demeanor which I expect from BA."
Pros: "good flight, on time, nice crew, no complaints"
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and dusty/worn. Food is below average. Lounge is the worst of all among all the London lounges. Food and beverage in business lounge is like a school cafeteria level."
Pros: "Your staff were truly excellent, helpful and engaging."
Cons: "My TV worked only intermittently and I therefore could not relax and enjoy the entertainment..."
Cons: "Very long lines for British check-in that went very slowly. I spent over 1.5 hours just at the check-in process. This seemed unnecessary."

Cons: "Couldn't get their attention to order a hot drink, or to toss the empty once they came around to collect the rubbish."
Pros: "Made up for time due to a big tail wind"
Cons: "Took off late and had to wait 45 minutes for luggage"
Pros: "Flight was on time,actually ahead of time."
Cons: "Aircon was not efficient. Very hot in the plane."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The inflight entertainment system was at least 15 years old and it did not work in my seat despite numerous attempts to reset. As someone who cannot sleep on flights I was very uncomfortable and annoyed that I had to sit through 12 hours of flying with nothing to watch or listen to."
Pros: "Strong tailwind brought us in 30mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing. Was a smooth and friendly flight. Cabin crew were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Took forever to serve cold drinks and food. Said we were going to have a short flight due to tail wind so they would not serve hot drinks. Mean while we landed at the expected time of arrival."

No headphones . Late departure .

My favorite airline scored again.

Cons: "Flight was pushed back two hours and it was very frustrating. UA didn't offer an alternative flight or offer any tickets for food and drink to those waiting."
Cons: "Food and rough flight"
Cons: "It could have been better if my luggage didn’t go missing"
Pros: "We boarded quickly. That was nice."
Cons: "The plane was old and tiny with barely any room for carry on. And no in flight entertainment or WiFi or anything. Bummer."
Cons: "When flight is delayed (by taxing for 45min or delayed take off of 3h40) allow passengers who are trying to connect disembark first."
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "First, it was a big ordeal to get seats together, traveling with 3 children. Seats did not recline. No movie screen, entertainment. Weren’t allowed a carryon, only under seat. Will not fly united again."
Pros: "Horrible experience with travel assistant at Newark. All United ground staff were rude and extremely slow. Complete chaos in extreme weather situation."
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Everything smooth! Yes, a couple younguns’ a little on the cryin’ side... but everyone has to get through that sooner rather than later (and, BTW, they had incredible legroom in Economy so whazzup with that???)."
Pros: "Very good service"
Pros: "Stroopwaffles"
Cons: "Turbulent"
Cons: "Cramped, not enough room for carry-ons"

Pros: "Cannot rate the food as I didn’t have any."
Cons: "The plane was very small and crammed"
Pros: "Flight was quick once we got on to it."

Pros: "The flight attendants were pretty nice."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour and a half while we waited for 'paperwork'. The captain kept trying to make it seem like our fault for missing our connections because we didn't have longer layovers in O'Hare. I barely made my connection. I know other people did not."
Pros: "Flight was stuck on tarmac in Denver for 45 minutes. Missed connection Air hostess was very friendly throughout"
Pros: "The pilot knew how to fly that plane."
Pros: "Flight was timely and crew was very nice - good flight!"
Pros: "Flight was on-time."
Cons: "I sat in section 4 in economy coach. The ticketing agents REQUIRED everyone in sections 4 and 5 in the back to check our bags, they gave us no choice! We then boarded the airplane to find over half of all the overhead bins empty! This is completely unacceptable to be separated from my carry-on luggage for no reason! There would have been plenty of room for our baggage! One more reason to never fly United again!"
Cons: "I was informed at check in that I could not bring a carry on bag. Therefore, I had to pay to check my bag. However, all other passengers on the plane brought carry on bags. Then, upon arrival in New Orleans, my bag failed to arrive. My bag was still in Chicago."

Cons: "Had to pay extra for entertainment."

Cons: "Forced by gate agents to put a tiny (5 inch) shoulder bag (like a tiny man-purse) into my carry-on. United blamed this dumb harassment on TSA. Huh? Super petty & annoying - the bag was tiny!!"
Cons: "Flight attendants in coach seemed off. Not very friendly."
Cons: "Customer service preflight was atrocious. I will never fly united again"
Pros: "Boarding was well-organized and fairly quick. But be ready to check your bag at the gate, even if it's the right size for a carry-on..."
Cons: "The plane's seats are very uncomfortable, security in Newark took a long time, and there isn't enough space on the plane for everyone to have a carry-on bag (or at least that's how the flight and gate crew treated many of us when they forced us to check our bags at the gate, despite there being plenty of room after everyone was boarded)."
Pros: "The flight overall was excellent. I was impressed the flight was on time and we arrived early. The price was great for a non stop flight - there should be more of these!"

Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy, crew were professional"
Cons: "No food or entertainment for a flight with flight time for than 5 hours"

Cons: "Everything."

Cons: "It wasn't much I didn't like."
Pros: "That despite leaving late we arrived on time."
Cons: "The delays due to unorganization."
Pros: "That your seat is assigned"
Cons: "Crew was rude"
Pros: "The boarding process was very simple and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "There are great entertainment options for in flight viewing, but there is no warning ahead of time that additional applications have to be downloaded in order to use them. At 30,000 feet it is impossible without paying for wifi. Also, I was actually looking forward to the little snack sized peanuts. Instead, you're given a salty trail mixed something that's seasoned very heavily. It just made me want to sneak water from the drink cart rather than curbing my hunger."
Pros: "Overall very good. Friendly staff and timely arrival and departure"
Cons: "More leg room (on first flight) and drinks with ice!"
Pros: "The smooth take off & landing. The flight attendants were very helpful."
Cons: "Nothing"
