This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "We’ve been waiting for almost an hour now for the bags to come out. This is insane"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Cons: "Toilets needs air freshener as so many passengers use them."
Pros: "Good flights"
Cons: "Qatar Airways Maharjan lounge snack Restuarant service was not great. Boarding was very inconvenient in Doha using the bus. All the rest at Zurich and in flights was good."
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."
Pros: "Short 4 hour flight, full - not one open seat Yet, the crew was super nice and efficient."
Pros: "Everything was good. Seat is roomy and able to stretch leg."

Cons: "Many of the entertainment systems were broken."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "I found my seat a bit uncomfortable for this leg of the jurney"
Cons: "the area I sat in smelled weird even though the crew helped spray a solution it didn’t help the smell .. Vegetarian meal is not good"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."

Pros: "business cabin nearly empty. comfortable seats"
Cons: "Expensive WiFi"
Cons: "My seats from Doha to Mumbai were very uncomfortable....37EFG. The 37D was a pain stepping out and in."

Pros: "FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WERE WONDERFUL"
Cons: "CRYING BABY BUT I UNDERSTAND THOUGH"
Cons: "- Leg Space is challenge"
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I liked staff , boarding was organized food was not very good needs to be improved"
Cons: "The flight from Sao Paulo to Doha was canceled which delayed our travel by 24 hrs. With the baggage being mis-labeled from Rio we almost lost our bags. the crew was not communicative and the entire experience terribly stressful."
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Pros: "Confi and relaxed atmosphere"
Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "Crews behavior was amazing"
Cons: "Menu/food Less choice"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Comfort and service"
Cons: "Food breaks should be more"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Was forced to purchase a return ticket or was not allowed to board the plane. Had to pay 850.00 dollars. In process of requesting a refund."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled. No other flight that day or the next day was available. Delta could offer no accommodation, vouchers, rain checks or anything. Essentially, Delta told me to go F myself. Not nice."
Cons: "I get bad weather happens, and flights get disrupted. I do not get that Delta seems surprised by this and was unable to adjust. It, essentially, threw up its hands and surrendered."

I was originally supposed to fly out on 2/18/22 and return on 2/22/22. I drove three hours to get to the Albany airport. While waiting Delta sent a message stating that my flight was delayed an hour so I would not make my connection in Laguardia. I waited 35 minutes to talk to a Delta agent in the Albany airport. She said there were no other flights until Sunday 2/20/22. I rebooked my flight for the following Thursday 2/24/22, but she could not book my returning flight on Sunday 2/27/22. She gave me a phone number to call. I stayed on the line with the Delta agent for 2 hours to book my returning flight. This was not optimal because I have to work on Monday 2/28/22. On my returning flight, the flight from Atlanta to Albany was delayed three hours. This placed me arriving in Albany at 2:30 am. By the time I found my car and drove three hours back to my house it was 6:00 am 2/28/22. I had to take a half-day off so I could sleep before work. In total, I took a half-day off on 2/1822 to arrive at Albany on time for my flight, drove six hours for nothing, and had to take a half-day on my returning flight.

Cramped seats. No "food" service due to the short flight. When was the last time real food was served on any domestic flight? Crew not too friendly. Poor sound system to hear the pilot and flight attendants.

One flight attendant was crazy uptight about masks. Really an unpleasant experience.

Overall good flight. Only downside is that the passenger next to me took up part of my seat in addition to hers, which was slightly uncomfortable but not a big deal.

Cons: "Boarding announcements were hardly audible. We chose comfort seats for extra payment but that still did not turn out to be comfort class. Seat classes are confusing. No temperature was taken before boarding."
Pros: "The snacks and water were great. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The head flight attendant was very nice and fun!! She made a delayed flight so much better. Plus, or pilot was great!"
Pros: "Confort was minor but ok"
Cons: "The flight was not on time. The staff broke my carry-on zip for expansion and refuse to admit it was a suitcase damage which need to be repair. They said put a belt around it to use it !!!! It is a 1 year new piece of luggage from Delsey which is a very good quality brand and expensive!!!!!!"
Pros: "We got home safely! The crew was great and generally cheerful despite less than great conditions."
Cons: "Lots of delays due to weather, which I get. The plane was small and old and stuffy with too close seats."
Pros: "The crew was understanding and sympathetic to the customer's frustration with a delayed flight."
Cons: "Delta should have figured out a way to not delay the flight. Every flight was delayed."
Pros: "The Movie selection was pretty good for such a long flight."
Cons: "Seats front to back is WAY too short in economy. Person in front of me put their seat back putting my movie screen 2in in front of my face. Plus, when a meal arrived, I had to put my elbows into my neighbors seat to cut because I couldn't put them front to back. Crew seemed uncaring."
Pros: "Although the take off was delayed (having nothing to do with the crew or airplane or LAX), we arrived right on time. Good food. Great in flight entertainment. I appreciated the low lighting levels while we were trying to sleep/rest."
Cons: "The plane needs more bathrooms."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were great!"
Pros: "Everything except landing at the same time my next flight was boarding. I had to sprint and was greeted my the meanest delta agent I have ever known. I didn’t know you could be that snotty. She would not Listen to me or help me get the correct seat o had signes up for"
Cons: "Attends on flight said to go ask gate crew to help me and I rushed out to be greeted again by the bus mean crude snotty agent. She told me to get my rear on the plane The attendants didn’t have a clue that she had others to board ( they all got upgrades) and I better move my rear. I was shocked."
Pros: "Crew were caring and friendly... seemed sincere"
Cons: "My husband and I had reserved seats next to each other but then today they had been rearranged and we couldn’t sit together which was annoying and disappointing especially as this was a treat to just come to Charleston together ... this seems wrong when we have paid for tickets together"
Cons: "There is no room. The snacks were fine, but the main meal was disgusting."
Pros: "Departed on time. Very courteous crew."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Flight itself was fine"
Cons: "My flight to Atlanta was delayed which caused me to miss my flight to Seattle. The next earliest flight was booked so had to catch another flight several hours later. No one from Delta offered any sort of compensation."
Cons: "The Wi-Fi cut out a bit"
Pros: "All the attendants were very nice. The movies were great, but ones I would have liked to watch were not on your list."
Cons: "There was no Christian music on the music section."
Pros: "Very nice stewardess on this plane. Seating was excellent."
Cons: "Crew was not apologetic after we missed connecting flight due to technical difficulties with their plane. I was re-routed to Barcelona and then a very budgetary Airlines to Athens which was ridiculously tight again with seating and flight was almost an hour late. Luggage didn't come until following day. And to top it off, I thought I would be flying with KLM on both legs!"
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "My luggage was sent to another city"
Pros: "The chekc in person was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was too hot and the pilot did not accommodate the passengers request. More than just me made the same request."
Pros: "The crew was great, the plane didnt have any extras and the headrest didnt have the adjustable flaps."
Cons: "Lack of charging outlet and no headrest screen for entertainment."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Plane was clean, easy boarding, crew was kind and attentive."
Cons: "30 minutes late no explanations...."
Pros: "Plenty of meals and friendly service"
Cons: "Crowded seating...."
Pros: "Early"
Cons: "Crowded"
Pros: "It landed safely"
Cons: "Delayed take-off, one plane for hour or so."
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was early."
Cons: "Poor booking experience."
Pros: "I appreciated that Delta was on time and prompt about getting passengers onboard. I appreciated that the stewardess was very courteous. I appreciated that there was no delay."
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like. I had a previous bad experience with another airline that canceled my flight three days in a row. So I was very appreciative of the fact that Delta had available flights for me to leave."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Pros: "The staff was professional and friendly"
Cons: "Flight left late for multiple reasons, missed my connection. Because there were multiple causes it just reveals how many cracks in the system there are. Flight delays are so common these days that I would just rather drive if possible."
Pros: "ability to book a later flight when I missed my connection through the delta app."
Cons: "Delays, missed a connection, booked a new connection through the app and that one was delayed as well...what was supposed to be a 3.5 hour experience turned into a much longer one. Seats do not accommodate people over 6'2" abiet very poorly."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Flight was so short there was no food , drink or entertainment."
Pros: "Gate agent was great. Smooth boarding and very attentive flight crew."
Cons: "The only negative was an older aircraft but the crew went out of their way to talk to people about setting up entertainment."
Pros: "There wasn't much to like. Just about everything was wrong. The plane was a newish 787, so it didn't feel old. Boarding went well because we complained about how tired we, at 70+, were because the flight was late and we'd been standing up; this resulted in us being boarded with some of the latish priority passengers."
Cons: "Everything, really. The plane was very crowded; small seats, little leg room. The meals were mediocre and the cabin staff were just barely the good side of unhelpful, officious and unfriendly The flight was inexplicably 2 hours or more late in excellent weather. No apologies given, the flight that was originally scheduled for 8 pm left close to 11 pm. While boarding the only light is a purplish ambient lighting that made it impossible to read anything, including the safety material, until the inflight entertainment was loaded up (the lights are only controlled through software-actuated virtual buttons on the screen). The inflight entertainment system is hard to use, too, designed by idiots for use by geniuses. But the very worst thing was the stress caused by Virgin Atlantic in just about guaranteeing that we would miss this flight. On our outbound voyage in January, VA, for reasons nobody knows, booked an ADDITIONAL leg from JHB to CPT on BA at 12:30 pm, even though we were already ON the earlier 9:30 BA flight we'd booked and paid for. Then, when we didn't show up for this spurious flight (because we were already in the air) we didn't book (BA swears they have evidence that VA made this booking), our return flight CPT to JBG three months later was cancelled WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE. If I hadn't been interested in knowing, the day before the flight, if the return BA flight had a meal, I would have showed up at the CPT airport in April and discovered that I had no way to get to the VA flight in JHB! As it was I spent an entire day trying to get back on the flight I'd already paid for. I advise EVERYONE who uses VA to reconfirm flights over and over. There is still no explanation for this. I will never NEVER fly VA again. They are not to be trusted."
Pros: "We had comfort class and it's very nice"
Cons: "Both Crews at airport and on flight aren't very friendly, I guess this is the nature of all American flight after seeing how customer being treated from the United incident"
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Pros: "We liked the personalized tv screens on the back of each chair that allowed us to watch free movies. The flight crew was very nice as well."
Cons: "We arrived at the gate early only to find out that they had changed our flight without telling us so we were almost an hour extra wait before leaving Vegas. Then that flight was delayed by about 30 minutes with no warning, just late!"
Pros: "People are good"
Cons: "Flight delays!"
Pros: "First time I've seen Delta have zone boarding areas near the gate, kinda like what Southwest does with their boarding numbers. Kinda worked, kinda still a mess. One crewmember was nice to my son at the end of the flight, offered to get him into the cockpit for a photo op."
Cons: "Very little legroom. My knees just barely fit in the aisle."
Pros: "Crew was great, flight was on-time and most often overlooked (but most important) we got there safely."
Cons: "The seat on this 737-800 was uncomfortably narrow. This was likely due to the table-tray being in the seat armrest. I had to remove everything from my side pants pockets and even then was not particularly comfortable. This is particularly annoying because I usually avoid this by flying comfort plus. However, on this itinerary, Delta would not allow me to give them money for Comfort plus, because it was a domestic leg on an itinerary including stops in Asia. Such a baffling policy!?!?"
Pros: "Satellite TV on this flight was perfect! I got to watch a football game live that I really wanted to watch, but conflicted with this flight. It was great! The leg room was good and the seat was comfortable on this short flight. The lighting was appropriate for an 8pm-12am flight. Crew was nice"
Cons: "nothing to note here on this one."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Very cramped seating on this plane."
Pros: "The delta employees kept us informed of what was going on with the jetway which had broken. Despite the chaotic boarding, we arrived at our destination on time! Way to go! I do love delta."
Cons: "Due to the construction in the airport, there is a small area for this group of people to be ready to board, therefore, it was very difficult to move or get around, Suggest that employees give more instructions about boarding procedures and suggest that people line up accordingly in the right order. They should explain the order of entry, and ask for people who are the last group to stay back so that those who board first are allowed through."
Pros: "Very funny, added comedy to the flight. Great!"
Pros: "Pretty good service. Excellent cabin service. Good snacks. Organized announcements at Gate. Constantly updating lateness of flight. The whole Delta staff did great job with very quick turnaround time when plane was at gate. Excellent Starbucks coffee! Was appreciated!"
Cons: "1hour late leaving LAX. Rough flight. Weather not withstanding the landing had people concerned. I've been on a lot of flights-that was probably the roughest/least precise landing I've ever experienced!"

Very kind people

The check in process was disorganized. The staff were rude. Once you get on the flight, there is no entertainment on board.

Pros: "Super"
Cons: "I’m still waiting for my baggage"
Cons: "I do not like that mono do sale me a ticket with no baggage and never will by a ticket from this company again!"
Pros: "Economy light is not a good choice but that is not what was special. Everything worked together very well, beginning with timeliness, but crew and service outstanding."
Cons: "See above. I will only buy further tickets directly from airline"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Cons: "Lufthansa changed my flight last minute but was sending me updates for the old booking- it made no sense!!! Never again!"
Cons: "Lufthansa’s needs to get their staffing act together. It took 1 1/4 hrs to check in due to insufficient staff & then once on board the flight it was announced there was no food available due to staffing shortages"
Pros: "Service is excellent, comfortable seats and space between legs is comfortable even in economy."
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Pros: "Service was great too"
Cons: "Squished in seat"
Cons: "I get Emergency to be sick and be in hospital and the request company for exchange my fly back from Slovakia back to my country USA and they declined my refund or exchange tickets even if I have doctors statement being in the hospital they’re rude and mean and decline make any changes for me"
Pros: "Had a horrible experience on another airline the night before. Got this free that flight and booked with Lufthansa a few hours before take off. We were not sure what to expect but we’re pleasantly surpirsed with the entire experience. Definitely would recommend."
Pros: "Crew was very professional, seating comfort excellent, flight very little turbulence, close to estimated arrival time, overall a good experience."
Cons: "Luggage waiting time too long, my suitcase was badly damaged rendered unusable, came to a compensation agreement which was acceptable to me at the time since I was pressed for time to catch the train I had a reservation for. But still will not buy me a new suitcase."
Pros: "airplane comfortable"
Cons: "luggages were split and still lost can not find at the mean time"
Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Cons: "Had to run thru airport to catch plane, thn long wait to board."
Cons: "Luggage was held up at baggage claim over 45 minutes, therefore we missed our connecting flight. Had to argue with desk to get rebooked the following morning. Overall took about 2 hours from the time we received our luggage til we got to hotel !! After a 9 hour flight, we were done!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Crew was great and pleasent!"
Pros: "Everything went off without a hitch. Love how organized Lufthansa is."
Pros: "Five stars good flhte !!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The plane was new, clean and tight. Seats very narrow, no foot room with carry bag under seat on front. On time depart and arrive. Good movies. BUT, where are my bags. Second day in Geneva without clothes or medicines. SwissPort at GVA isn’t helping. They don’t even know where they are: don’t know if they left EWR"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Pros: "it was quite comfortable"
Cons: "luggage got delayed by 2 days. No dresses to even wear. Plus lufthanse didn't know where my bags were."
Cons: "We sat at a very very bad seats. No space for the legs. And when we wanted to go to the rest room it was so narow we couldn't get out or up."
Cons: "Too close for getting on as 3 passport checks seems redundant. Munich has very little signage to direct anyone. We do not live there so do not know the language."
Pros: "I like the lufthansa Flight. The Crew was Amazing."
Cons: "I didn't like there UNITED Flight merger/connecting flight. United flights are not comfortable at all especially seat's cushion. There in-flight Touch Screens are pathetic. Either United Airlines need to upgrade there planes or Lufthansa should think of avoiding them"
Pros: "No complaints - quick flight."
Pros: "Comfort, food, service - all were superb."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Pros: "Good service.good movies.Good food."
Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Cons: "great and easy"
Pros: "The planes of United Express are shabby. The service is unreliable. This was the last flight to Cedar Rapids from Chicago on the 14th. It left on time, which I regard as a miracle. That flight is chronically late or canceled. So I felt very lucky, especially after a long flight from Israel. The crew was nice however."
Cons: "I have already indicate that in part. The planes are shabby and the seats are fairly uncomfortable. The good thing about this particular flight is that the person at the gate who organized the boarding, changed my seat to one where there was no one else sitting next to me."
Cons: "Food was awful. Looked like something you would find in prison. My second leg did not even have vegan options for me, as I ordered online weeks ago. I was so hungry after almost 14 hours of flying plus a 12-hour layover. I am not impressed with this airline."
Pros: "This was a fantastic flight -- the crew were very friendly and helpful, the legroom was great for "regular" economy class, and the flight was on time. The direct flight was so much nicer with young children than having connections. Would fly again any time."
Cons: "I really can't think of anything to complain about... the touch screen in my daughter's entertainment unit was a bit flaky, but that's about it."
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "I liked the food and entertainment"
Pros: "I used to fly lufthansa for my europe travel for work about 15 years ago a lot and thought in recent years it may not have been as good but these flights made me appreciate Lufthansa anew. Crew extremely helpful and polite, always followed up to any requests. Instead of barking at us like United or American crew, they went out of their way to help my daughter get a makeshift icepack for some very painful bumps she got during our vacation. Crew also kept the bathrooms clean from time to time, which was a welcome relief for such a long flight. Desk staff/service desk also was helpful in directing us during the 5 hr layover to things at the airport itself that we could do. They also helped reprint the boarding pass and write down the baggage tags when security made me lose those by separating my wallet and boarding passes into mutliple bins."
Cons: "Phone service. When I tried to book my seats and meals, the lady kept getting things wrong, and ended up not getting me the seats I had specifically ended up asking for. So, when I arrived at the airport and printed my boarding cards, those were seats I did NOT want and all the service desks insisted that's what I asked for. No low carb meal option was surprising. Meal service sometimes felt like too close to each other else too far apart from snacks - didn't feel like we had enough time to digest and get some sleep, while at other times we were seeking out snacks.Overall good quality of food however."
Pros: "On time, fast boarding"
Cons: "Food. Couple of screens not working."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment. Everything fine."
Cons: "Flight attendants were very attentive. Plentiful food and drinks with several choices. Pillow, blanket, headphones provided. Individual monitors with choice of movies television music games and more. USB port for charging. Smooth flight, on time. Bid for an upgrade option is nice."
Pros: "Landed on time"
Cons: "Took 2.5 hours to even get water from the crew. Food was disturbingly bad (hot goo). Service was unbelievably slow. I've never seen something like this on a major airline. Shocked and disappointed."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to strike, rescheduled twice, ended up on American, terrible experience"
Pros: "All expected for the economy class.great enterntaiment"
Cons: "Seats a bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "Good flight, Friendly staff."
Pros: "It was our first time to fly Lufthansa and the overall experience was exceptional. The flight crew was great. We enjoyed the food, drink and movies. We would definitely fly Lufthansa again!"

Problems with the in-flight wi-fi (none) and the flight info (none). However, movies worked fine and the selection is exceptional.

The flight that you gave us, JQ7 from Melbourne did not exist. Therefore we had to stay in Melbourne for another 24 hours and find another new route and flights to return to Heathrow. All a strain and stress. Your service to us for the return journey useless. So far, I have not found that you have corrected any of your failings and therefore it could also happen again to others tomorrow, next week, or next month. The return journey was a total disaster.

It was a Good flight

Okay

They canceled our flights but they flew anyway.

Dreamliner was comfortable and entertainment system good

Great flight Will go again!

Pros: "The crew was professional & friendly"
Cons: "Food was terrible honestly, entertainment system didn't work on 1st flight."
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Old aircraft. Uncomfortable seats in economy. Entertainment screens old and almost impossible to watch - watched my iPhone! No mobile phone charger."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Slow in refuelling, got us delayed for 40-"
Cons: "Seats in economy section are very close together . There is not enough room for knees...especially for such a long trip."
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my baggage was lost"
Pros: "The bed was comfortable. Entertainment selection and large TV screen was good. The KLM crew is amazing, as usual."
Cons: "Food quality was not so good."
Pros: "No delay and nice staff"
Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"
Pros: "Service is awesome. Food is great."
Cons: "People with short connection are affected by the 15 to 25 minutes delay."
Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and the food was really good."
Cons: "The air conditioners fan was bad and they had to fix it in London which took over 40 minutes off travel time...we arrived much later than expected in Lagos"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."
Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."
Pros: "One crew member was very good but all were not very available or checking on people. I had a seat that I purchased and it was very hard to recline I only found out that it did if fact recline it the last hour to hour and a half of the trip! It was a difficult push back to get it to recline"
Cons: "If I knew how to recline my seat earlier. I did try several times"
Pros: "Helpful and kind crew"
Cons: "I wish there was WiFi"
Pros: "The crew were very nice, food was tasty, seat comfortable and the entertainment great as well. Will be flying KLM again soon :)"
Pros: "great crew and comfortable flight."
Cons: "sceens in the plane to show map and direction of travel"
Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"
Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"
Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."
Cons: "Services was pretty weird .. Perse or crew Leader was ok But the assistent Young one was Really bad.. aptitud and not friendly at all."
Pros: "Restrooms clean, decent food and drink, nice cabin crew."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Wifi on Board"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."
Pros: "expedited check in with nice staff. Security staff were pleasant, and the entire check in process for everything was easy"
Cons: "there was no lounge close to our departure gate"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for 15 min resulting in passengers rushing to make their connecting flights.but staff kept passengers informed."
Cons: "Flight departing late."
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Cons: "Two hours delay in the start."
Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."
Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Late Cabin extremely warm Full flight and centre seat means no room to relax or carry out work"
Pros: "They were awesome."
Pros: "Easy airport business"
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Very friendly and the food and drinks never stopped and no additional charges, a very nice experience over the bargain airlines, free in-flight movies, and entertainment, no cost."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Plane service"
Cons: "1h30min delay at airport"
Pros: "Flight was quick, professional, friendly."

Low cost experience with premium price. 1h wait inside the plane leading to a long delay

Anyways on time and excellent service

Considering I cancelled the flight 2 months ago -- I would have to say the communication was poor -- since I continue to received updates. I say poor since Kayak seems not to want to respond to me to reschedule a flight -- they hold my voucher -- so I can not do it on my own --

British airways sucks!

Pros: "Boarding was quick and expedient. I was worried the flight might have been held up because Schiphol airport is too small to handle its increasing air traffic and is often backed up with planes waiting on the tarmac to dock or take off. But it was an early morning flight and everything went smoothly. We landed on time, disembarked efficiently, and were on our way."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and willing to assist with everything."
Pros: "Efficient well groomed staff, thoughtful amenities such as baby seat belts & toiletry kit containing toothbrushes. Palatable tasty cuisine."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Really old plane with uncomfortable seats and really bad in flight options. The air conditioning was also broken so the entire flight felt hot and muggy, this is on a 12 hour flight!!"
Pros: "Smooth flight without event. On time landing. Efficient deplaning."
Cons: "Newer plane. Seats , entertainment, cabin crew."
Cons: "Despite most of the plane being offered refreshment I never was as staff not organised enough to have time to do so, even though other airlines have managed easily."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was unbearably hot"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Cons: "Only one round of drinks served?"
Cons: "Baggage delayed on arrival"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The food, inflight entertainment. Our flight was delayed by over an hour."
Pros: "Crew very professional and staff well informed."
Cons: "Feels like a bus in the sky. Same device as Ryanair but not on time."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "Very poor movie choice and poor quality screen"
Pros: "I got up to use the toilet after we were allowed to leave our seats then the next thing I knew we were getting ready to land! Qiuck journey amazing!"
Cons: "The quickness of the journey"
Pros: "The BA staff on the plane were excellent, given the horrible way we arrived to board the plane. They went above and beyond to help mitigate the treatment before boarding the plane. Also, our vegan that we requested via American Airlines on the phone back in September didn't appear on their list, so they made the best out of a bad situation."
Cons: "Our first BA flight was late leaving and therefore we arrived to our 2nd flight 20 minutes before the flight was to leave. The check-in staff were completely rude, telling us to run and threatening to not let us on the plane. It was not our fault the plane left late from BCN to LHR. Once we were actually let on the plane, we didn't push back from the gate until 5-10 minutes after the scheduled departure time. There was absolutely no reason to have treated us that way, so we promptly submitted a complaint to British Airways."
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."
Pros: "On time, all the staff were lovely at the terminals and on the plane"
Cons: "All goid"
Pros: "Everything was great. The seats were comfortable and the crew excellent. The aircraft was clean and easy to get about in."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "They exceeded my expectation. The food. The crew. The comfort. I rarely slept on the plane. But this time I did. Wider leg room and comfortable seats.."
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
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"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Paid for bulkhead seat and was not given a bulkhead seat."
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: "It was on Air Lingus not BA. No Entertainment -"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."
Pros: "excellent food, crew was incredible and really friendly."
Cons: "only complaint was that the woman next to me had the aisle seat, drank 4 units of alcohol and fell asleep so i was unable to go to the bathroom. additionally, she didn't get up once so why she needed the aisle seat is beyond me."
Cons: "No wifi on a +11hr flight TV Screen looks horrible. Too old. Didn’t even watch any movie on it. got downgraded from First Class to Business Class because the airline oversold first classs. Shouldn’t happen."
Cons: "Good service and amenities from London to DC. Athens to London flightnshould provide free coffee, warwe, etc. Why pay for every small amenity on a 2hr flight? Seemed like Freddy Lalker!"
Pros: "That it was on schedule"
Cons: "Having to be told to check luggage when I merely took what I was allowed. I felt that I was targeted because female and possibly thought I would not raise objection."
Pros: "Good leg room, decent film selection, more than enough attention from flight crew."
Cons: "It's airplane food so my expectations are not very high, but the vegetarian option that I had seemed especially bland."
Pros: "When I got off the fight."
Cons: "The boarding process is a mess. The flight crew is in total disarray. My friend beside me on the flight got the food 45 minutes before me. Then the second time they gave food out the last 5 rows didn’t get any bc they did bring enough. Just a total mess."
Cons: "My bag was missing for five days back in Chicago."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Charged us 1/2 adult fare for lap infant. Lied to us we had assigned seats. Would not let us check in online. Lied at terminal we had bulkhead with area for infant. Incompetence and lying at several points. We have flown on multiple airlines with infant without any of these problems. VERY poor airlines."
Pros: "Polite and friendly crew, comfortable seat and plane."
Pros: "Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable, clean seat, good food."
Cons: "Having to pay TWICE for extra item of luggage!! Some delay with boarding"
Pros: "I appreciated to entertainment choices. Also the crew came through with water and fruit juice frequently, very nice"

Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Really comfortable"
Cons: "Paying for a soda!"
Pros: "we landed"
Cons: "flight had a two hours delay flight attendants were rude and obnoxious will never fly on british airways ever again they shouldnt be allowed to drive people let alone fly them london is just fog and ugly faces british airways' customer service is the equivalent of wisdom teeth: they exist but no one seems to know why they should delete their airline altogether"
Pros: "Flight attendants are so very tentative and the pilot made numerous announcements. Great planes excellent service"
Cons: "--"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Noise level when people were trying to sleep; seats not too comfortable"
Pros: "Extra leg room in premium economy"
Cons: "Service poor relative to global peers, food mediocre, entertainment system totally outdated"
