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: I LOVE the non-stop from PHX to FRA. There are not many direct flights to Europe from Phoenix, and I am very glad that this one exists.

Cons: The flight was two hours delayed. Condor did not send out any information regarding the delay. Really appreciate it when other airlines do.

Okay 4,3

Pros: The flight crew made the best of an inconvenient situation and seemed genuinely apologetic for what they clearly knew were exploitative policies.

Cons: Our flight was delayed due to a mechanical issue, but instead of updating the schedule to reflect this, the airline had us standing indefinitely in the queue to board; this was probably about 45 minutes in which we could have sat down or grabbed some food, or literally done ANYTHING other than waiting as we did. Because of this delay, we were offered hard candies. In all honesty, I would have preferred to be offered water, which at €2.50 on an international, several hours long flight is borderline criminal. I have been skeptical about low-cost, "budget" airlines in the past, and this experience confirmed that if the price of the flight seems too good to be true, it probably is. The difference in cost was more than paid for by the hidden fees, the quality of service, and the denial of basic human dignities like not having your knees crushed against the seat in front of you, or God forbid--a cup of tap water.

Cons: Like I said better staff communication in regards to my special situation/need. Also I was surprised I had to pay for the water I had on the flight as the attendant who offered it didn’t mention it was for purchase when they asked me if I wanted bottled water.

Pros: The pasta lunch was very good! The cold sausages later.....hmmm not so much! Our seats were very comfortable and there was plenty of room in the overhead bins which was really nice! They did a great job of keeping us abreast of why our flight was running late, that was much appreciated! The steward on my side was just "OK", but the gal on the otherside was FABULOUS! She smiled and made eye contact with each person as she passed them a drink.

Cons: I felt there could have been more options for entertainment. I realize you could purchase a premium package, but for a 9 hour flight I think they could provide free a few more options for shows or movies. even the music options were very limited.
