Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."
Cons: "I paid extra for the seat but it was very cramped."
Pros: "Seats were small."
Cons: "The boarding process was inefficient and long. The seats don’t recline and very little leg room."
Cons: "Nothing except the airport"
Cons: "Flight was late, boarding was archaic, seat pitch in for economy was tighter than I am accustomed, Could not purchase foo or drink because cash was not accepted & my credit cards were denied for offline purchase. No snacks or drink machines in boarding waiting area. Crew looked uninterested"

Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"
Pros: "We pushed back from the gate about 24 minutes late and arrived at our destination about 38 minutes late. The four-course dinner (Chicken Tikka Masala or Penne Pasta) was good for airline food. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "No USB power ports by the seats."
Cons: "Not even a free water/soda was offered, need to purchase everything."
Pros: "Polite and funny crew"
Cons: "Snacks and drinks for money"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, courteous and very helpful. On time arrival despite a late departure."
Cons: "As a new user of the app I expected information to flow more fluidly. Gate changes were not communicated through the app unlike several other airline apps I use. My biggest complaint, if you will, is the requirements to pay for anything one wants on the plane. A soda, water, bag of crisps/chips, all for purchase. For the cost of the airline ticket, even our "no checked bag" ticket, you could at least afford to give passengers a can of soft drink or a water and inexpensive bag of pretzels or crisps. Seat was basically comfortable, not great but comfortable. Departed late but arrived on time"
Cons: "Always late always charge for water that’s sad"
Pros: "Left a bit late, but not the airlines fault. Crew was friend, plane was ok."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Crew did their best while sweating with the passengers especially prior to take off"
Pros: "It was a pleasant and smooth ride. The crew was friendly and responsible"
Cons: "There was only food and drink for purchase, no complimentary water etc. It was short trip and no problem for me"
Pros: "Nothing to special comparing with other first class"
Cons: "Boarding process was very late, they made us wait in the cold for 10 min before letting us in the plane. The staff was professional but not too friendly and the place is old. When I purchased the ticket it said it was a airbus A380"
Cons: "Being charged for everything! Even a coke....really! Couldn't reserve a seat until 24 hrs. without paying extra ."
Pros: "Staff are friendly, accomodating for an unaccompanied child with me, upgraded me and helped to support the extra baggage needs"
Cons: "Old, dirty planes with bad enterainment systems and mediocre food and drink offerings. With the price of a ticket more than Emirates, KLM and other airlines, always really suprised the overall crappy hardware, infrastructure on planes etc. When can we get a decent plane to fly the long haul flights. And an actual entertainment system like to competitors?"
Cons: "Absolute nightmare dealing with British cancelled flight and then having them rebook me with American, their "partner" company. Spent three hours this morning dealing with these two unprofessional companies and their lack of communication between each other."
Pros: "Ease in getting the boarding passes. The people were very kind and understanding and informative."
Cons: "Nothing I didn’t like. For a person that is not a flyer I don’t have any complaints"
Pros: "Timely and good crew."
Cons: "No jetways in Frankfurt. Had to board using stairs."
Cons: "The passengers on the plane were rude. No consideration for others when departing the plane."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Check in counter make difficult: my cary on luggage is standard, they should know it."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled less than 12 hours prior to departure. The airlines switched our flight to one that ended at a different airport (where our car was not located). Called the airlines multiple times but only heard a message that they were "busy". British airlines was again unable to help us at the airport. We had to go to American to have them "hack in" and adjust our British airway flight itenerary. I will never fly British airlines again. They couldn't have been less helpful if they tried"
Cons: "We couldn't enter the gate area until about 30 minutes prior. There wasn't anywhere else to wait so eveyrone nded up standing around the gate. Which blocked the hall to the restrooms and ended with a lot of people standing at a store front."
Cons: "Having to take a bus to get to the aeroplane"
Pros: "Punctual, relaxing."
Cons: "No free refreshment, not even water."
Cons: "Why can't Germany load planes from concourse ramps instead of busing and so many stairs. Frankfurt airport is so poorly designed and how much of my ticket is for buses and bus drivers, etc."
Pros: "What a different experience in relation to last week!"
Pros: "Wonderful customer service and hot meal was a lovely treat!!"
Cons: "No direct communication. Really bad"
Cons: "Tight seating was fairly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Wasted nearly 3000$ Worst custmober service never buying ticket throggg you or just fly again They wanted a doctors note I sent it so many phone calls so much money spent on them ended up stuck in London sick without a ticket to return had to purchase a new ticket pay for hotel transport everything"
Pros: "Entertainment system and seats."
Pros: "Staff was friendly. Great snacks!"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Noise level when people were trying to sleep; seats not too comfortable"
Cons: "Was not able to check in through to Cape Town, only JNB. When arrived in JNB, British Airways flight was not clearly identifiable from ticket (no flight number). Then the flight was delayed, and plane was old! Horrible experience"
Pros: "Convenience to return to Heathrow with enough time to navigate customs and security and make my connection. Fare price was good"
Cons: "The whole trip."
Pros: "That BAA have WiFi on the plan and the flight back did not even have USB charger . In new York at at the BAA terminal they only have 30 min worth of wifi"
Cons: "The service . In general it can be better"
Cons: "Tight seats, not much for entertainment"
Cons: "It takes a long time to clear security/customs in London."
Pros: "British offers a variety of comforts such as abundant drink and food as well as entertainment to keep the long travels interesting."
Cons: "On my way to Europe BA lost my custom made titanium crutches that cost over $750. They were moved without my consent to the holding of the plane, with checked baggage. The crutches were not tagged when moved without my permission and are now lost with very little chance of finding them. In the three weeks since they have only replied to one of my emails to say they will not provide compensation even to replace the crutches. It disheartens me they have a lack of care and urgency for equipment that is so vital for daily mobility in people's lives."
Cons: "They moved the flight forward 30 mins so that I only had 30 mins to switch planes at one of the biggest airports in Europe."
Pros: "Nice Crew"
Cons: "More space between seats, better air conditioning."
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)"
Cons: "Actually having a seat would have been nice. When I arrived at the airport I was told I was on standby and did not have an assigned seat. I was forced to pay an additional €90 how to secure and upgraded seat. I will never fly this airline again"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. The seats were comfortable and the food was great."
Cons: "There seems to be a problem with the organization of the boarding process. I took COndor to and from Frankfurt - boarding both directions lacked organization. This last flight was a real cluster mess."
Pros: "Not much. The crew was nice but that’s about it"
Cons: "It was extremely hot. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Good service from crew No confortable seat"
Cons: "Boarding area was a little confusing. More announcements and signs for direction would help."
Cons: "No vegetarian option for second meal. No wifi at all, only one movie available to watch...Otherwise you have to pay. Most long-haul flights have a wide selection of movies available for free."
Cons: "Air hostesses too hectic"
Cons: "Overbooked flight. Couldn't get the seats that we had reserved 6 months prior as we failed to check in and reserve our seats in time."
Pros: "The plane is very comfortable with wide seats."
Cons: "My baggage didn't make it to Austin. I don't know when I will have it back. Not really professional baggage re clame handling... The food made my tummy hurt and no choices. Sucks to buy entertainment after a 1000 dollar ticket price and I could only pay with cash on the plane."
Pros: "Seating more spacious than other airlines"
Cons: "Website did not allow selection of gluten free meal. Email not responded to until too late. Departure gate in Frankfurt had no seating before checkin. Luggage arrived late in terminal at Baltimore."
Pros: "The direct flight from PHX to FRA"
Cons: "pretty much everything about this experience. To start, the agents and online chat customer service were extremely rude and unhelpful, even after calling several times and waiting up to an hour on hold. At one point i expressed my frustration and answer i got was "I'm sorry you feel that way". No sympathy what so ever. On the flight -the seats were horrible and food was disgusting."
Pros: "The plane actually made it to Phoenix. Amazing they could figure out how much fuel to load given the fact that everything else was completely disorganized."
Cons: "Had to go up to the gate counter - literally 3 times for "document checks". Rude gate personnel. Completely disorganized. Departed an hour late. Pilot made no attempt to adjust speed so we could arrive in Phoenix on time, which means we missed our scheduled gate departure so we were made even more late as the place sat on the tarmac in Phoenix waiting for another gate to deplane."
Pros: "The boarding process seemed difficult to go through. Waited 1 hr to check in baggage because 2 agents were all they had. We had two more screenings after this that almost seemed misunderstood by the Condir personnel."
Cons: "Condor seems to take every opportunity to retell the customer that you’re flying cheap. Inadequate staff, grumpy stewardesses, horrid food and the older very cramped seat style. By the time we added surcharges for seats and luggage, we were already in the regular fare range of Lufthansa. Which we regretted not taking to Germany. Beware."
Cons: "It took over an hour for the baggage to start coming out, and they were so disorganized it came out on two different baggage carousels."
Pros: "Onboarding/offboarding were painless, and flight attendants were generally nice."
Cons: "I'm 6'6" and barely fit in the seats. I've learned to live with that, but it was frustrating that only 2 of the 7 front-row seats with extra legroom in the section were occupied before the flight, and a flight attendant chose a much shorter and not elderly passenger to fill a third seat in that row, leaving no alternative seating options for me and my wife to request. Most other airlines notice my size/discomfort right away and offer to work with me, especially on transatlantic flights. Food and entertainment had limited options and were nothing to get excited about, but you get what you pay for."
Cons: "Poor legroom, seat did not recline. And why make ne pay 8 euros for movies?"
Cons: "Economy movies only two options, that's great but one option was "Part One" of a Harry Potter movie. Should of at least had Part Two available or not shown part one...just a thought."
Pros: "This flight was a little more challenging. The flight was delayed by 3 hours. I do appreciate thought that the Condor airline made the necessary arrangements to ensure their passengers can make the connection to their final destination even though we landed past the time we were to make our next connection. They too care of making sure to secure another flight for the passengers who missed their first connection. Great job. I made it back home the same day."
Pros: "Crew attentive"
Cons: "Food, seats, crew reating station, toiletts"
Pros: "I can't say much of any part of the trip was good but I'm glad the flight is over with."
Cons: "Bad parts: The tightness of the seat area between the arm rests is too constrictive. Passenger to my side overlapped my arm for extra room. Leg room is too close and could not stretch legs under seat without knees bumping seat ahead. The passenger ahead tilting seat back when food was served pushed my food tray into my lap. International flights should include entertainment movies at no additional fee."
Pros: "Premium economy is far better than economy - economy has far less leg room, and as I'm 5'11" that made a big difference. It also provides you with more movie options (15 v. 2). All in all it was a good flight."
Cons: "The food, even the upgraded version in premium economy, is not good. Also, for boarding, everyone really boarded at once and you had to go through additional security to get to the gate so you were basically stuck in a waiting room until your flight left with only vending machines (but there were bathrooms so that was good!)."
Pros: "Was more comfortable then I expected. Some of the crew was really friendly, while some were not."
Cons: "One crew member filled the drinks about halfway out of our 100ml cups on a 11 hour flight and the plane was insanely dry on the flight. No idea why they'd skimp on water for passengers."
Cons: "Only 2 security check point gates, one for priority, one for economy class. Seat size is small, leg room is tight. Only 4 toilets for economy class."
Pros: "This is a new service out of New Orleans which I found very convenient and efficient. Smooth flight and good, attentive crew."
Cons: "Communication regarding reservations and follow-up check-in was not very easy. Also at the airport when I stopped and asked a Condor employee for directions to locate my connecting flight, her initial response was curt --that she could not help me as she was in the process of boarding passengers -- although there was no one but her there. She then directed me elsewhere."
Cons: "Our first leg of the trip was canceled by CONDOR. We had to frantically get help from a general ticket counter for our flight from Rome to Frankfurt. It was an epic ending to a horrible flight experience. Because our flight to Rome was beyond awful, we asked for a free seat upgrade and were told that they are unable to do that. They have zero customer service and don't seem to care about the customers at all."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. Meals were provided. the tablet set up so that we could watch movies, TV, our location during the flight or listen to music. Flight was on time."
Cons: "No leg room. The person in front of me reclined their seat and there was barely room for a coffee cup on the table. My husband, who is not a particularly tall person had his knees against the seat in the front. Frankfurt is an odd airport. I lost track of all the lines that we stood in. Had to pay for more selection on movies and TV."
Pros: "Great value for money. I paid extra fee for premium entertainment, but it was pretty cheap and still a lot less than what I would have paid on other airlines for the trip. The service was excellent, the food was very good. I would recommend this airline to anyone. I paid for the premium food on the way back. It was excellent, although the regular food was not bad."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for about an hour, however it was not any stress and the airline kept us informed at all times."
Pros: "Painless boarding, adequate albeit sometimes crowded lavatories."
Cons: "Very poor entertainment in economy without spending money on premium features. The last meal of the flight was served still frozen."
Pros: "Everyone was lovely and helpful. The food was good and that light fluffy cake was delicious."
Cons: "My "lacto free" meals included cheese and custard. Not very dairy free."
Cons: "Hit in the knee by the flight attendants cart."
Pros: "The food was super! Seats were very comfortable with ample leg room, and I could hardly keep my eyes open throughout the flight. The crew was also attentive."
Cons: "Just that the only entertainment was a limited number of music radio channels with country and old school music. I mean no TV for premium economy?! Lufthansa's basic economy has got a TV and WiFi for long distance travels!"
Pros: "We flew Condor PDX/FRA outbound and I was not happy. Coach cabin was configured 3seats/aisle/3seats/aisle/3seats abreast and row spacing was way too close. I noted this in my review and was dreading the 10.5 hour return flight. I was pleasantly surprised to find a roomier seating arrangement with 2seats/aisle/3seats/aisle/2seats with larger seats and a bit more legroom. The service as before was attentive and efficient."
Cons: "Was this new cabin arrangement the new standard or did we just get lucky on that trip? I will only book with Condor again if I can be guaranteed the roomier cabin."
Pros: "the crew was great,, did all they could do to make a long flight enjoyable"
Cons: "the gate for condor was in an isolated area of the airport, no restaurants, no shopping, inadequate restrooms and them stuck in a room with 2 vending machines for hours when flight was delayed"
Pros: "Bottle of water in seat pocket for return flight"
Cons: "Paying to watch movies Flights delayed with no explanation given"
Pros: "The staff was accommodating when things went wrong"
Cons: "The seats are very small especially when people recline. The need to request special meals for allergies ahead of time was not clear and there are very few snacks of any substance to purchase. The check in process and security process at Frankfurt are one of the least efficient I've ever seen."
Pros: "Flight time was shortened by 1.5 hrs!"
Cons: "Distance between seats was short and my knees touched the seat in front"
Pros: "I wrote my critique of the long flight under the short flight."
Pros: "Great food."
Cons: "Only 2 choices of free movies and tv shows. No games."
Pros: "The seats were surprisingly comfortable. The staff was pleasant."
Cons: "The food was 80's style pasta and everyone got the same. The entertainment system, even if you pay, is lacking in decent content."
Pros: "Got seats I paid $60.00 extra for each seat each way. not any better than luck of the draw."
Cons: "Food was poor, service ended at business section except for necessary stops. Announcements weren't audible."
Pros: "Very roomy"
Cons: "No wifi. Seats were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Were placed on stand by without any notice. Were unable to board and sit together. Never given a reason as to why we were placed on standby. Tickets purchased 2 1/2 months in advance. Told to sit down and not be concerned. POOR, POOR CUSTOMER RELATIONS!!!"
Pros: "Roomy plane, well organized and hot meals."
Cons: "No wifi available. Weight limit on carry on bags."
Cons: "Plane was 'old' and entertainment was terrible. Needed to bring my own entertainment."
Pros: "Water was free. And 2 meals - no, based on portion size, I guess those were snacks. Everything else cost extra."
Cons: "Tightest passenger seating I have experienced in over 60 years of flying and the MOST UNCOMFORTABLE seat. I am just 6' and my knees pressed agsinst the seatback in the upright position. Firmly. First time ever I couldn't sleep. Accoustics meant the talking of a passenger across the aisle and against the window sounded like he was in my lap! HORRIBLE design. A ceiling panel came loose and swung down in flight (lights attached). Nobody knew how to fix it so the entire wait crew just stood and stared at it for 10 minutes until one woman swung it back into place. AWFUL training."
Pros: "Good Flight ,Crew was nice, Flight on time"
Cons: "Food was not very good What I really did not Ike was that we got served soon after take off and then not again until 11/2 before we landed in Las Vegas and that Food was awful .The Movies are a Joke on such a long Flight come on Condor you can do better than that.Sorry Condor I took you before and that was the worst so far."
