The plane and services in Emirates flight from Los Angeles to Dubai were very good . But plane and services in flight from Dubai to Delhi were very poor/uncomfortable. Staff at Dubai and crew in Dubai plane was very very disappointing|shabby. Wheel chair was given only for a very small part of layover at Dubai and we faced great inconvenience. In short , our experience Dubai onwards(fly Dubai) was very bad and uncomfortable.
We purchased extra legroom seats for both legs of flight through budget air. Seats were not honored by emirates. Had to spend frustrating hour to get seats we paid for on first leg to Dubai. Second leg to Jakarta were denied and had to sit in middle seat. Had to spend hour on phone yesterday to try to get refund. We’re told needed to send copies of boarding passes of which already threw away first leg boarding pass. Very very frustrating. This happened as well one year ago with emirates.
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Better food and cooked throughly and better seat and more blankets."
Pros: "Crew was a little curt in giving instructions - open that window ma’am"
Cons: "I requested the meal a little later cause I was asleep... but she said not possible. I would e been ok with a cold meal a little later cause I wasn’t feeling well. Would’ve appreciated a little understanding."
Pros: "Yes crew was good. But the seats being economy, were very congested having very less leg space."
Cons: "Can't say."
Pros: "Pilot does not waste time chatting. Still too much chatter (interrupting movies) but less than on other airlines."
Cons: "Entertainment system is Windows based and designed by a moron, especially CC behavior. Shows ads (LOTS) before each movie. Pops up window chrome every time you dismiss PA announcements. Very few movies/TVs (even those from the US) have CC."
Pros: "flight was very empty, so crew very accommodating. boarding simple with so few"
Pros: "First time we flew on business on international (we upgraded)."
Pros: "Easy check in and comfortable flight. The crew are very helpful."
Cons: "Couldn't get my preferred isle seat or sit with my wife who was in a different row."
Cons: "The food was not up to the mark - the menu choice and combinations needs to be re-looked at for non-veg passengers. The choice of spirits was limited and not there at times. The flight attendants overall disposition towards the passengers needs to improve. - at times they forgot what was asked of them."
Qatar screwed up by delaying our onward journey for refueling, which resulted in missing our connecting flight to India. the airport qater staff at Doha, herded us like cattle in a very incohesive and uncoordinated way. We were then given 2 options: either catch our original flight the Next day ( After 24.hrs) or catch 2 flights instead , to goto our destination in India. All this, for paying a premium for Qatar.
The screen was not clean.It had stains of previous customer .Also the toilets..My daughter got urine infection. Not happy with the cleanliness of aircraft.Also requested multiple time hot beverages but not served at all sighting disturbances. Request on behalf of every passenger please sanitize and clean as we stay for 15 plus hours..

Pros: "The crew was amazing. Made traveling with infant little less harder."
Cons: "The crew from Doha to Kolkata segment could have been little more helpful, especially when they see someone travelling with small kids"
Pros: "It was an ok experience, improved by the head of attendants at the end"
Cons: "Service was poor at the beginning, but improved to Qatar service as I complained to the supervisor of the attendants Julia"

Cons: "Attitude of some of the flight attendants and more entertainment."
I travel extensively internationally. I only bought this ticket because it was much cheaper than my usual airlines. I had sworn off Lufthansa from past experiences of tiny seat space, mediocre food and entertainment and unconcerned airline stewardesses. I was pleasantly surprised on this flight! My seat space was bigger than I remembered. The plane was new! The stewardesses were great and the food much better. Movie selection wasn't as good as Delta/Air France but good enough. I would now choose Lufthansa again in my top tier of flight choices.
Food has poor quality and taste Entertainment system is very slow responding
Cons: "Istanbul to frankfurt flight had no entertainment, no charging usb ports n a small ham sandwitch for breakfast - this was a 4 hour early mirning international flight!!!"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and as far as airplane good goes, it was great."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "The onboard entertainment were quite outdated selections. The seats are very small for such a long flight."
Pros: "Our flight from Hamburg to Munich arrived late. Lufthansa met about 10 of us at our arrival gate, took us through a side channel Passport Control and then mini-bused us to our gate. We arrived at the gate 15 minutes after scheduled departure but our plane was there. Very considerate."
Cons: "We missed our connection due to the delay and they could only rebook us on flights that made us miss an entire day or our vacation."
Cons: "Delayed flight - but it’s ok since I got to my final destination safely. It wasn’t a very long delay."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful and I love flying Lufthansa always:)."
Cons: "Onboard entertainment didn’t have good selection for me for such a long flight 4 different flights I took.And some of the touch screens didn’t work properly:(."
Pros: "Great staff, pleasant flight, nice options on the screen to choose from, etc."
Not as good compared to intercontinental flights but reasonable good
Plane trays needed a clean. Still had drink stains on them. Crew great.
Boarding was disorganized. I was asked to check my carryon luggage when I had a tight connection to JFK. I purposely did not pack a large luggage because I did not want to deal with checked luggage getting lost or the hassle of retrieving my luggage at JFK.
Pros: "Good enough amount of leg room. Easy to checkin online."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit of a nightmare. Seems some people were directed to the rear of the plane when they were sitting at the front and visa Versace so they were trying to pass each other in the isle."
Cons: "Flight from heathrow to Manchester stopped it being excellent alll round as flight delayed over an hour"
Pros: "This was a charter by BA. Airbus A320 with amazing legroom. Was slightly annoyed by them not having coffee ( to wake me up for the drive home) but I suppose I get why they weren’t serving hot beverages."
Cons: "The beverages thing above."
Cons: "We couldn’t get on the flight. We arrived late because of an earlier flight but were at the ticket area before this flight even started boarding. Our boarding passes would not print at our departure location and I wasn’t able to check in online for it because it kept linking to the American Airlines website for checkin. We tried to print our boarding passes at the kiosks but it said we needed to seek assistance. We were misdirected to the ticketing/rebooking line which we sat in and watched the board change to boarding and later gate closing. There were only two agents at the desk helping the completely full queue. We were told that our reservation was apparently already changed to a later flight for some reason. Being delayed seven hours is a great way to start a honeymoon off."
Pros: "Flight was delayed however the crew got us back as fast as they could and we where very happy with the service"
Pros: "BA moved me on to the Kulula flight without any fuss and gave me a meal voucher."
Cons: "I got to the airport to find that my 19:15 flight had been delayed to 22:15. I hadn't received any notification from BA and still do not know the reason for the delay. The only other option available was for BA to put us on the 20:20 Kulula flight to Lanseria and then shuttle us from Lanseria to OR Tambo. It really is not pleasant to get back home so late on a week night and not even be given any warning or any reason for the huge delay."
Pros: "Only wish they would've put me on the direct flight"
Cons: "The transfer was a pain. Signage at Toronto Airport is non existent. I had to stop and ask people which way to go 3 times"
Tired of being nickel and dimed for every little thing, especially carry-on luggage.
Plane seemed dated and things like overhead compartments and bathroom cabinets had difficulty keeping closed.
Cons: "The actual flight was fine. It was the delay, followed by what seemed changing info on when it was happening. Every 30 minutes it changed. Five minutes before the flight, the info board said it had been moved to 9:40pm and was changed from Gate 3 to Gate 30, a very long distance to get to. However t"
Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly staff and on time"
Cons: "Entertainment is very poor, it was unavailable the entertainment and no WiFi this time"
Pros: "I paid for an Economy Plus seat and was three rows back from the galley and you would have thought the rows around me were prisoners. We were completely ignored by the flight crew. I had to actually go up and ask my own coffee and water. I saw one flight attendant yell at the person seating next to me, because she got up to go to the bathroom, after the "fasten seat belt" sign was off but the flight attendant was not aware of it. Basically everyone was rude."
Cons: "My flight was rescheduled, so I ended up waiting about a 12 hour delay in Germany"
Cons: "Food was mediocre and in very small amounts, even the I have been seated in premium economy, there still was little space in the armrests and hardly any recline"
Pros: "Plane did its job - got us from Point A to Point B safely. United Customer service dept in Chicago was helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Entertainment system was out on the plane. Plane sounded old and rickety - lots of rattles and creaks."
Pros: "Flight staff was good!"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, it was re-booked, but lots of walking and waiting especially for a older person. Chicago busy , more walking, home much later,.. still waiting for one suitcase."
Pros: "The team did their best to get everyone boarded quickly and make up time for the delayed flight. Even the captain was doing what he could within safety limits."
Cons: "The TV would not change channels or turn off. It was very distracting on my night time flight. And maybe it's just when you're trying to sleep, but there just seemed to be less personal space than I remember on other recent flights."
