Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"

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."

Cons: "Great"

Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"

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: "Journey to Helsinki to Doha was good. Plenty of empty seats."
Cons: "Full packed airline Doha to Dhaka as well as flight was delayed a bit."

Pros: "Crew was nice, attentive and very helpful"
Cons: "More leg room"

Cons: "I had a carry on plus a laptop bag. On the website they say you are allowed to carry a personal item such as handbag or a laptop bag along with the carry on piece. This guy at Nagpur airport says the weight of both these combined should be under 15 lbs. are you kidding me?"

Pros: "crew were amazing."

Pros: "Everything was great ,On time , comfortable seeds, Crew were very nice , boarding was quick Thank you Qatar Airways"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "For 1.5 kilo overwait I’ve been charged $65"

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: "Cabin crews were politie"
Cons: "Waiting area outside gate was crowded and slow service, plane take off was delayed Plane wasnt clean enough food wasnt good taste horrible"

Pros: "Individual service, happy and natural looking crew, comfort and company aim."

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: "Everything"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."

Pros: "Great travel experience. We flew economy. Spacious, good service, comfy, on time."
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Thanks for good service"
Cons: "Everything was good service food entertainment"

Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."

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 would definitely travel again with quatar. Amazing trip long hours but they sure take care of the passenger. Love how they took care of my child"

Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."

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: "The in flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "Service was not the same, flight attendants were not attentive or very accommodating. There were very rambunctious children on the flight and they did not consider everyone else by asking the parents to calm their children down instead allowed them to run up and down he aisles screaming etc"

Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"

Pros: "Exlent"

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: "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: "Crew was nice. Food was excellent."

Pros: "The food was the best airline food out there. Also, the regular economy seats recline more than other airlines."

Pros: "Food and crew"
Cons: "Lost baggage no one knows anything."

Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "The security process to board the plane had no order. Stood in line while people after me was able to board the plane. When it was my turn, I was randomly selected for additional security screening."

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: "Very kind and helping crew.. professional and helpfull"
Cons: "I dont have anything to complain about"

Pros: "Great airline...nice staff, very attentive and polite."

Cons: "They never gave my baby's stroller when I landed at my destination..i.e. Houston. They said I have to pick it up only at baggage claim..and I had to carry my baby with 2 hand luggages all the way through immigration until I reached baggage claim...very disappointed with this. ..Other airlines handed the baby stroller as soon as you got off from the flight.."

Pros: "Quick boarding, semi- spacious seats, decent snack food"
Cons: "Not much to dislike, but I still will NEVER fly Qatar again."

Pros: "The crew was polite but did not enforce social distancing when boarding. Disembarkation was chaos with everyone pushing to get off the plane."
Cons: "Calling people to board by rows would have made it less chaotic. Disembarkation was a dangerous disorganized mess."

Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Cons: "Crew seemed to be having an off day. Not as organized and we’re rushed."

Cons: "We were not allowed to board our connecting flight and are stranded currently at the Istanbul airport and had to book our next flight with indigo as the staff closed the boarding ahead of time even though we were on time. Lot of shouting and crying by other passengers happening for the same reason."

Cons: "Cabin temperature was too warm"

Pros: "Tea"
Cons: "Food and service"

Pros: "Entertainment, and crew was nice"
Cons: "Seats and food. I had a dietary restriction (no dairy). But instead of giving me poached chicken and boiled potatoes be more creative and put more flavour. It’s lactose free not flavour free"

Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."

Pros: "Food as per.always was.great and choice of entertainment also good."
Cons: "Bording was delayed because of inbound flight delays."

Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."

Pros: "Price of ticket Clean bathrooms"
Cons: "I was sitting next to toddlers, who were crying and hyper. I think they should assign special section for parents with kids under 5. Felt sick after dinner with aubergine rice and mince meat. Food was not optimum quality. Crew was good but some could smile some more! Seats were stained and old, but reasonably comfy."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."

Pros: "The seats have ex space"
Cons: "Counter check in had me take some close off my bags for over weight even I’m allowed to carry two Luggage and. I had one only"

Pros: "Same!"

Pros: "Will never use kayak again"

Cons: "The breakfast was poor & frozen ."

Cons: "We had asked for wheel chair. At Istanbul we were made to wait for almost two hours. Our boarding passes were collected by your staff, when I raised my voice, were given one wheel chair and I had to run along with the staff or we could have missed the flight. I wanted to have some grub at airport but there was no time."

Pros: "The flights themselves were fine"
Cons: "However, having a long layover in Istanbul airport was a problem as there are no seats available to sit it for hours. If Turkish Airlines wishes to continue to be a major travel hub they will need to cater to transit passengers."

Pros: "hospitality was great, accommodations to ensure comfort were appreciated, and meals were fresh."
Cons: "the seats could use a little cushion, otherwise, no problems"

Pros: "Even though I had two different bookings for connections, since they were all handled by them, they offered me to send my lugagge to the final destination"
Cons: "In all the flights I took with them (7 so far), Service was reactive, not proactive. In fact, there was one time in which I asked for some water in a long flight (because they dont offer from time to time as other companies do, and I was truly polite in my request) and the guy from the crew told me 'please go and fetch'. I had to point these two huge guys sleeping next to me I had no relation with (I was at the window seat) for him to realize that he was being ridiculous."

Pros: "Food was great, flight was on time, clean plain, great interior, great entertainment."
Cons: "Really limited leg space. I'm 5.9 and felt like I was a giant, couldn't stretch. Ordered kids meal at the time of ticket purchase but due to some reasons that crew could explain there was no food for our two year old. They offered a regular meal which my son did not want to eat. Crew was not super friendly and that seems to be the norm for this airline. Limited s"

Pros: "Great food!"
Cons: "The aircraft looks a little old."

Pros: "What I liked about my flight was the service was the plane was up and running."
Cons: "What I didn't understand or appreciate was that this flight was supposed to take off at 8pm, as it was already delayed, but the plane just sat on the tar mat until 11pm without any explanations from the crew, no announcements, and most disturbing: not even the offer of a drink of water for the passengers as we waited blindly."

Pros: "Every thing"

Pros: "not much"
Cons: "flight delays, lost bag, did not get delivered for over two days"

Pros: "We were happy about everything on the flight. The flight crew was attentive, the food was good, and the baggage came to the pickup carousel quickly."
Cons: "We liked everything."

Cons: "Wish they used a large plane like the Istanbul to MIA one."

Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"

Cons: "My bag did not make it to final destination & there was no excuse for it as there was enough time during layover AND I arrived to airport by required time before flight."

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Cons: "The seats were hard and lacked legroom"

Pros: "Crew was very nice. I got my special meal. I am very thankful for it."
Cons: "Kosher food was ok"

Pros: "I like everything the staff, the food, the plane was very clean and the entertainment was very nice with lot of options."

Pros: "I used the prime lounge in Istanbul and when it was time to go, I was able to practically walk on the plane without any wait. The seats were comfy and didn't have a ton of legroom but it wasn't bad. The staff we're friendly and helpful. The in-flight entertainment had a pretty impressive selection and had one of the best-designed interfaces I've seen so far (and I've ridden a variety of airlines). Last and most important, the food was hands down the BEST I've had on a plane. Turkish is killing it, they're my new go-to airline!"
Cons: "I really can't complain about anything, even if I try! Maybe the touch screen sensitivity on the entertainment console seemed a little off, but that's just nitpicking"

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Seats are a bit old."

Pros: "I always fly Turkish Air when I can. I like it a lot"
Cons: "This flight was a standard deviation below the usual quality. The crew seemed inexperienced, and the service was slow. The business-class cabin was only about 40% occupied, and yet the crew seemed unable to provide quick service. As I say, this is not normally the case, but it was a little disappointing."

Pros: "The flight staff was very friendly, even to difficult passengers."

Pros: "Food and service was excellent."
Cons: "Get rid of the foot rest, it blocks the ability to stretch your legs during a long flight. As a result, it was a very uncomfortable flight. I do not know of any other long haul airlines that have these. I will probably not fly Turkish Airlines on any flights over 3 hours due to the cramped space caused by your footrests. Other than space, everything else was excellent."

Pros: "food + entertainment"

Cons: "Need more vegetarian options"

Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"

Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."

Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"

Pros: "the flight from Istanbul to the U.S. was amazing, I watch 3 great movies and some wonderful meals. Even though I,flew economy I,felt like it was business class - foot rest pillow and blanket and they hand out hot towels and packs with toothbrushes and socks and slippers. I will definitely. Fly. Turkish Air again based on,this very positive experience"
Cons: "There was one flight attendant who,thought she was all that ..she was rolling her eyes at passengers and had a snotty look on,her face."

Pros: "EXCELLENT AIR LINE"

Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "Boarding in Istanbul. We did not know the gate number until one hour before departure, because there were only 3 monitors in the area that we sat in and there are so many flights, so the flight did not appear on those monitors. Only the one main monitor in in the center of the airport is large enough and there are not seats in that area."

Cons: "There seemed to be no check in which confused me a little. The luggage pick up was more of a zoo than usual and plenty of suffocating dust from construction while we waited."

Pros: "It was great service. No problems with my luggage. Great food. I did not not expected that good trip for low price, but I have it. I thank the crew for their hard work."
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Comfortable seats (good space for legs), good entertainment (big variety of new movies) and friendly boardpersonal"
Cons: "Online check in was easy but impossible to print my eticket via my iphone (no mobile version for eticket) After Online check in, still had to cue because there was no single drop off available. So no time saving"

Pros: "flights on time.."
Cons: "Our pre-ordered meals were not served"

Pros: "Excellent food and services, both ground staff and cabin crew."
Cons: "Seat pitch is very short on the Airbus A330 for an average person’s height allowing for very limited body movability making it extremely uncomfortably especially on long flight durations."

Pros: "Crew was nasty. They acted like prison guards not like they supposed to act to customers."

Pros: "The crew was nice"

Cons: "The social distancing, the cdc is recommending 6 ft but there are passengers directly behind and in grinning us and only one passenger seat empty between 2 people. With covid on the rise, how are you actually doing your party to take care of your customers."

Pros: "When I asked for a seat change the crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "With covid in Seattle I was placed next to a restroom. I did not see any bathroom sanitation occurring during the flight, and no sanitizer available anywhere."

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "So uncomfortable with tiny seats"

Cons: "Space on airplanes"

Pros: "Wonderful hospitality, excellent service!! Clean, well thought meal service."
Cons: "Hoping that this will continue!!"

Pros: "Good crew, my seat did NOT recline."
Cons: "Plane was somewhat crowded."

Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"

Cons: "Bring ear buds if you want to watch/listen to a movie. Delta changes for ear buds Everything else was fine"

Pros: "I was surprised that we received two meals and constant drinks in economy. Delta definitely has better hospitality than American."
Cons: "The seats were really tight between the rows. The space between the seats on the same row were typical."

Cons: "The intercom was turned up too loud."

Cons: "Ran out of hot water on flight"

Cons: "gate agent said I could check my bags at door of plane -nobody was waiting there so I asked flight attendant & he was very rude to me wouldn’t help me & didn’t tell me where to hang up my coats when I asked / not my fault plane boarded 25 min late"

Pros: "Check in process & text updates were awesome!"
Cons: "My flight to PDX was quite bumpy so food and beverage service were impacted, which I totally understand. However, the fact that I was not served at all, does not sit well with me! They had to stop service with only a few rows left to go due to turbulence but rather it just being a delay in service, the flight attendants never came back to check on the customers they hadn’t served even when the seat belt lights turned off. I really enjoy flying Delta but not this time!"

Pros: "i likes that drinks were free"
Cons: "i shouldn’t have to pay for headphones"

Pros: "The crew was fine, flight was completely full and they were very prompt in their service. The power outlets didn’t work. The lights were on, but when I plugged in they didn’t charge."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable. Seats very close together for a flight that lasts over 5 hours."

Pros: "Boarded quickly and we made up plenty of time when we were only 15 mins late for take off."
Cons: "Baggage broke our baby stroller. Banged up, heavy deep scratches, and won’t lock properly nor will it release the brake phone portly where one wheel won’t unlock without much luck. Waiting to see how they correct this very expensive issue. And the vegan tapas option for food was not good at all. Ended up staying hungry for the duration of the flight. But my wife enjoyed her turkey sandwich."

Pros: "The crew are very nice on both flights and they were very courteous the seats.T"
Cons: "The seats were not that comfortable."

Pros: "Boarding and luggage check in were great. The flight crew and the flight itself were uneventful which is perfect."

Pros: "Great comfortable flight"

Pros: "Zones are more delineated."
Cons: "People were obviously cutting in line and edging up before their zones were called."

Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour and a half"

Pros: "Hartsfield rental car train broke so it made me miss my original flight to DCA. Delta ticket agents rebooked me w/no problem and could not have been nicer or more professional. Thank you Delta, you are my hero! Hartsfield Airport, not so much."

Cons: "Seats diddn't recline - often ignored by flight crew."

Pros: "Everything was fine other then seating assignment"
Cons: "I was traveling with wife but was not able to seat with her. I was stuck in the middle of 2 of the worlds biggest plus sized people. Armrest was a constant struggle. Willing to pay more next time to avoid hassle."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "no bed"

Pros: "Great ground staff and flight crew, except they should as warn and apologize regarding the limited gate as access so far from the check-in."
Cons: "Signage is terrible. Delta sign out side is obscured as and too small. Construction is no excuse for the confusion. Delta is not readable on the overhead signs and airport is too dark at night. Everything is hard to find."

Pros: "1000s of movies and shows to watch. Plenty of overhead bin storage. Alcohol beverage service included. Crew was great."
Cons: "Baked chicken dinner was gross."

Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."

Cons: "Time to bring in dual class flights!"

Pros: "We had terrible turbulence for probably 4 of the nearly 5 hour flight. The turbulence were the Pitts, but the plane, amenities, staff and amenities were top nothcj! Highly recommende Delta."
Cons: "Bad turbulence"

Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, friendly staff."

Pros: "Plane was clean, attendants were friendly, and food was fine."
Cons: "I had a flight from Detroit to Montreal. Tried to check in and DTW was not a choice on the westjet website and so I physically could not check in. I realized the flight was technically operated not by WestJet, but Gojet. Went to Gojet's website and was told that Delta took care of all of their ticketing and such. Went to Delta's website, entered my ticket number and card number but I was not in the system as I was given all WestJet info (not Delta's). Luckily the baggage check in people figured it all out."

Pros: "From friendly staff on the ground to check us in, to helpful flight attendants, Delta has once again convinced us it is one of the better airlines . Will fly delta again."

Pros: "The crew were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The entertainment system was completely down for the entire flight."

Pros: "Staff was frIendly."
Cons: "One of my bags went to Santa Fe"

Cons: "The flight got delayed by 3 hours or more. I missed my flight from LA to FL"

Cons: "Nothing to input. All was great."

Pros: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"
Cons: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"

Pros: "I liked everything."

Pros: "Staff as always was very attentive and courteous. The board process proceeded smoothly and we were able to depart a few minutes early."
Cons: "One attendant did display a slight level of un-professionalism after spilling a drink on my mom and not apologizing. I chalk it up to her embarrassment and she probably just forgot."

Pros: "Wide-bodied aircraft; free on-board entertainment with a good selection; complimentary snacks, helpful staff"
Cons: "Waiting 45 mins for baggage to arrive on the carousel at LAX, but probably due to the terminal move currently happening and not the airline's fault."

Pros: "Unlimited snacks and drinks..."
Cons: "The mediocre upgrade."

Pros: "There was a blanket and pillow available on the seat and the arm rests (all of them) went up... I appreciated that when I had to move mid flight. The attendants were nice as always... they weren't stingy with the small free snack that is included with the flight. (Small bag of peanuts or pretzels) that I liked. Usually feel like it is an inconvenience to ask for more than one.... but they offered 2! I was very happy to hear that!!"
Cons: "The entertainment was a bonus! Made the flight go by faster."

Pros: "I had paid for the Sky level as we were a party of long legged people. Out of the 4 flights we had taken, the best flight was the one from Hi to Atl. The seats, and leg space, was roomy. The food was good. The crew was just okay. They weren't particularly nice but rather abrupt. There were two mates that seems a bit confused. However, the plane was worth it."

Pros: "entertainment system included lots of good choices and free. Crew attentive and friendly. Fairly comfortable seating. Boarding was quick (with Delta Amex card). Several snack choices instead of just the old standby of pretzels."
Cons: "Captain not at door to greet passengers as they left - usually a given."

Pros: "The pilot came through all of the aisles in first class to personally thank us for flying with them. He took time to chat with us and answer our questions, which made me feel more comfortable about the long flight. The stewards/stewardesses were very nice and had us laughing on their welcome messages. The lay-flat seats in first class were the best. Very comfortable, and easy to fall asleep in, without disruption from other passengers who insist on keeping their reading lights on while everyone is trying to sleep."

Pros: "The Delta staff at the Marine terminal at La Guardia were fantastic and saved the staff that re-issued tickets at JFK."
Cons: "5 minutes until boarding at JFK we were told to transfer gates; upon arriving by shuttle to the new gate, passengers were informed the aircraft was downsized and 20 people needed to be bumped. I volunteered since I had a flexible schedule so Delta re-issued me a ticket at 9am JFK for a 10am flight out of La Guardia. I trusted them I'd make it in time and they said they called taxis for us so we left to go catch them. Actually, no taxis were to be found so we had to call our own and were significantly delayed. I was in the first group of 5 people to be re-issued and arrive at La Guardia. Everyone else bolted but my new boarding pass didn't work and they actually didn't properly re-issue my ticket as I had been booked as leg 3 of my international flight from Malaysia. After they called three different departments including China they were able to print my ticket at 9:54am so I sprinted through the security and to my gate and was able to somehow make the flight as they were closing the door. However probably 14 or so of the original bumped passengers definitely didn't make it."

Pros: "Crew was amazing and seats were comfortable."

Cons: "Wasn't able to online check-in thus losing my window seat 21A I had selected."

Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."

Cons: "2h30 delay and no follow-up for connecting flights"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled and rescheduled for tomorrow same time due to bad weather. I had a child with me and it took 2.5 hours for us in the airport to get a hotel and taxi for night stay and I reached at 0030 at night. The lufthansa staff was not helpful at the start. I will missed a meeting for"

Pros: "I had a good seat with a large leg room area. The flight was really comfortable slept like a baby! The staff are really nice."
Cons: "Food was pretty terrible, however we got offered drinks more than once which was good. A better entertainment system or provide free WiFi"

Pros: "Super professional, comfortable and on-time service with both Swiss and Lufthansa."
Cons: "Clear up-front notification about extra charge for first checked bag on both ways of the trip ($60 each). I couldn't find that information at the time of the booking."

Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."

Pros: "The boarding process was well organized and fast."

Pros: "So very comfortable with lots of room. The mattress pads for the seats were a nice touch."
Cons: "Food was mediocre."

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "UAL sucks, as expected."

Pros: "Food and Drinks"

Pros: "the crew were very good"
Cons: "sitting all the way back of the plane next to fat lady sorry"

Cons: "I was told there was no meal included because of the fare I paid. I paid $1100.00. I have never experienced this, even on round trip cheaper flights and I fly to Europe every year."

Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."

Cons: "Look like everybody to not know what they want to do"

Pros: "Very attentive, friendly and multilingual crew, frequent offers of food/drinks, good selection of movies"
Cons: "More a problem of the San Francisco airport than the airlines, but getting through passport control/customs involved multiple VERY long, slow-moving lines with very few people working to process the crowds. Then, even though my bags were checked all the way through to my final destination, I had to pick up my luggage and re-check it, and go through security again--and that also seemed poorly organized and/or short-staffed."

Pros: "The flight was full. service, food and entreatment was excellent"

Pros: "Clean, polite and cheerful staff, good food conveniently offered, on time, decent in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Easy. Clean. Friendly. Helpful with food allergies concerns."
Cons: "That we had to pay extra fee to reserve our seats"

Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."

Pros: "Easy checking"
Cons: "Worst hospitality. Asked for water, never came to serve. Had to remind and call couple of times. Said drinks were over specially scotch."

Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"

Cons: "The business class seats which are a lot more costly than economy seats are no different than economy seats. Same seat and on a 5 hour flight they are awful. The only difference from economy is that the middle seat is left empty....a help toward comfort, but far short especially when the price difference is factored in."

Pros: "Generally the whole experience with flying Lufthansa was a positive one. Comfortable seats, good leg room, pleasant staff"
Cons: "Nothing really other than we were late leaving/arriving and such a much reduced time on the layover in Frankfurt"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Seats were ok for a short flight."
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"

Pros: "I am very happy with my flights. I would recommend to friends and family. :) Thank you"

Pros: "The crew was attentive and everything went smoothly. I was able to change my seat."

Pros: "Staff was very friendly and caring."
Cons: "No entertainment and half sandwich with some cookies was the only food we got."

Pros: "That the plane brought me safely to San Diego"
Cons: "Paid entertainment on a 12 hour flight"

Pros: "Good food, friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Boarding process was torture. Lufthansa invited us to check-in early, but would not allow us to finish the check-in online process the day prior: seemed to be glitch in their computer system. We arrived at the airport early, but no one at Lufthansa could help us with seat assignments in order to seat our 12-yo daughter next to a partent. The airline did not open the gate area until 1+35 prior to the flight (advertised 2-hrs prior), and did not put anyone at the gate-desk until 1-hr prior to departure ...and they still could not help us. Boarding was disorganized; Lufthansa appeared to board by different groups, but there were no announcements as to which group(s) should board. Instead there was just a large crowd milling about, waiting to push their way to a gate agent. Very un-German."

Pros: "Boarding was fast Crew was polite"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board!!!!!!"

Pros: "Boarding and departure+arrival times were excellent. Baggage was handled well, arrived without damage. Much better marks here than AirFrance."
Cons: "Food was quite poor, much worse than KLM or Delta... no match for AirFrance,thoug I'd rather get poor food and arrive on time and without getting stranded at CDG. Also, Neither on-board wifi, nor the entertainment touchscreen worked, not at all. You'd be well advised to bring your own iPad... :-))"

Cons: "Also, just one meal and no snacks served on a 7 hour plus flight"

Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."

Pros: "Cleanliness"
Cons: "Food not very good"

Pros: "Everything seemed to run smoothly."
Cons: "No issues this leg"

Pros: "Love being able to watch whatever I want on the entertainment screen. The crew was very considerate and helpful to passengers. This plane had the restrooms downstairs which really reduced congestion."
Cons: "The "dinner" meal was really not good. The lunch meal was OK. I remember much better food being served several years ago when I last flew Lufthansa."

Pros: "Very good entertaining system plus good food . Crew members taking care about people all the time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "seat did not recline at all,"

Pros: "The staff at check in was very helpful!! Great service!"
Cons: "You need to pay $35 per seat to reserve."

Pros: "Unlike on US flights, a sandwich provided even though the flight was only 75 mins."

Pros: "The food was nice."
Cons: "12 hour flights in general not the most comfortable."

Pros: "Multiple entertainment choices. Food in Economy was better than expected and hot food was served at a good temperature."
Cons: "Tight leg room in Economy and the seat was a little hard."

Pros: "Good variety in vegan choices."
Cons: "Please add pickle if possible."

Pros: "I booked a ticket with Airfare.com using Kayak.com. The booking experience was easy, but the important note I want to make was during a large Colorado snowstorm where flights were being cancelled, I was able to proactively re-book my ticket with the help of Airfare.com customer service. Though it was complicated, I want to make sure Airfare.com gets credit for doing a good job."

Pros: "Flight was on schedule. Was lucky to get a empty seat next to me so plenty of room. Glad they provided the requested specialty meal."
Cons: "Boarding occurred an mass. No order what so ever so long lines getting to the plane and in the plane. The head phone jack was for a two prong headphone so it forced you to use the headphone they provided or only hear from one ear."

Pros: "Poor"
Cons: "Poor"

Pros: "How great everyone was and smooth sailing."
Cons: "Made sure the flight was not over booked."

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."

Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Had to use a shoe horn to get into and out of my seat and I'm not a large guy. But really my harsh criticism comes from the loss of my girlfriends luggage. It was left behind in Paris on our way to Casablanca causing us to waste a day in Casablanca traveling back to the airport the grab the bag the next day. And to add injury to insult her bag was left behind in JFK during our transfer for our flight to Seattle. No big deal right, Delta will deliver the bag to our house the next day, wrong, we were told we have to go to the airport ourselves to get the bag."

Pros: "Crew memebers"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Seat angle adjustment was not the most comfortable for sleeping."

Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"

Pros: "The crew did its best to make up for the fact that the special meal I ordered was inedible."
Cons: "See previous"

Pros: "On time, no hassle."

Cons: "There was no entertainment and the food could be better"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Everything very good"

Pros: "Multiple crew members paid constant helpful attention to my mother (88yrs of age) during boarding, deboarding and throughout the entire flight. Thank you!"

Cons: "The food was mediocre. Flying La Compagnie in the past was a much better food experience."

Pros: "The crew was amazingly helpful. My son was having some anxiety and they went out their way to make him comfortable. They were the best!"

Cons: "More chose in meals. I flew to and from within a week. All I had were chicken, chicken and chicken for snack too."

Pros: "Flight was delayed 4 hours with no explanation"
Cons: "Asked for wheel chair assistance and was not met in Paris. Had difficulty and barely made my flight. A gentleman who worked at airport assisted me"

Cons: "The fligh Washington delay more than a hour"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by at least an hour leaving Paris - a regular situation I experienced with AF."

Pros: "Leg space was great, food was delicious, alcohol served 3-4 times, and the in-flight entertainment was spectacular. I saw 4 movies and slept somewhat comfortably for once!"

Cons: "Flying back to US, passsengers get charged for their luggage. Which this is not informed to us, neither On our email nor when we were checking ( for free) in Us"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Missed flight due to lack of direction, last minute gate change and they shut door in our face after telling us they were holding plane"

Pros: "Great service, decent food"
Cons: "There was no WiFi on the plane"

Pros: "Food was good. Crew nice and professional."
Cons: "Landing was not so smooth."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. The crew seemed to skip over me and my husband multiple times. So we sat there with garbage the whole flight. My entertainment was broken and they had no solution but giving me $30 to use at the duty free shop the same day as the flighty. I paid extra for premium seating in an exit row and that was their idea of fair compensation. The crew ran out of vegetarian food so I didn’t eat anything but cold stale bread. The crew was non-existent most of the flight."

Pros: "Enjoyed my food, especially tasty for airplan fare!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "The free glass of red wine when the plane finally took off."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. We were told that it was just a half an hour delay by the man that was informing us of the delay and then we were then told by a woman that it was going to be over an hour. We weren’t told any specifics of why the plane was delayed, other than: “ the engineers are looking at the issue now”. We received messages saying that the flight was cancelled but then we were told to ignore that. We were told that we would have an update every 10-15 minutes but by the time we had the next update was 1 hours later, we were told that the plane will depart at 15:50- which we did. But we also sat on the plane for an extra 2 hours or maybe even more (couldn’t bare watching the time at this point) because the man that was supposed to push the plane backwards in order to reverse the plane didn’t turn up so we then had to wait for all of the other planes to take off before we could. Eventually the plane set off at 18:20 and I got in France 19:30-20:00 ish?"

Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was horrible and it involved climbing down steep stairs from the air tunnel to the tarmac to board a bus that took us to a far distance where the plane was parked. Had to new walk in the sweltering heat to the plane can climb up steep stairs in the heat! We were now kept in the plane for another hour with no aircondotion. It was boiling hot in there. We had to use the safety manuals to fan ourselves. We eventually left late and got to Lagos one and half hours we were meant to get there. Lastly not all the luggage arrived. Two days into my arrival and I am yet to get all my luggage. It was truly a horrible experience which was echoed by fellow passengers."

Pros: "Nithing"
Cons: "They were unfreindly and rude."

Pros: "Yelling, cheering and literally rolling in the aisle made for a really annoying flight"
Cons: "Infusions bad behavior. Also, flight number was changed and AF. Was understaffed to handle questions on squirrelly luggage check."

Cons: "CDG is a monster. The distances are long . The signage is poor and when I asked for directions the diirections I got were wrong."

Pros: "Fine for a 45-50 minute regional flight."
Cons: "Wouldn’t be great for long-haul flights."

Pros: "Speed, professionalism"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "All was good we didn’t feel the time 9 hours passed easily"
Cons: "Nothing special"

Pros: "The inflight service"
Cons: "The 3 hours delay"

Pros: "Got pillow, blanket, headphone and eye cover"
Cons: "Older plane Very small tv screen Didn't get the bread roll with my dinner. Asked for it but she didn't bring it to me. No usb plug to charge"

Cons: "The food wasnt upto the mark"

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Food was AWFUL! Better to serve nothing"

Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."

Pros: "Food, drinks, and general service on board were all very nice"

Cons: "Too crowded"

Pros: "The flight was good overall. Friendly crew good attention."
Cons: "There was a delay due to technical dificulties in previous flight. This caused a delay in take off and no AC while waiting in the plane for 40 minutes."

Cons: "It was all good, only in comparison with Turkish airlines and etihad it is not at par."

Pros: "Late"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "Boeing 777 had a lot of space. Good legroom. Timely departure and arrival, hassle free, safe trip all the way. Enjoyed the red wine; very delicious!"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline. The entertainment unit was very difficult to dislodge and raise to use (We were in the front). Movies were kind of older ones but I had reading to do so entertainment wasn't that important."

Pros: "Same as above, the crew was very friendly and the food was great."
Cons: "Seating was cramped and uncomfortable for a tall person."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
