I specifically chose Qatar from my last travel experience which was great but I was disappointed with the service from the crew on flight as well as the long, unruly lines at the check in
We were exited with the promptness and excellent sevices provided during our flight we were allotted and home the same sitting will be allotted during our return journey we regret to inform that one of our suitcases lock were broken and a lot of items were missing even one of our hand carry baggage. Which was given due to lack Of. Weight and was not locked was opened and a few of wrist waches and perfumes were opened we were not provided any wheel chair at Qatar airport waited a long time to be transported to. Other terminal to catch our flight to Kolkata so this is bad experience
Comfortable seats, good quality food, even though departure was delayed by an hour still caught up about half the time. Didn't have to rush to get the connection.
Customer service and helping people
Boarding and In flight customer service
Qatar airlines denied issue of any Boarding Pass to me at the Airport Check in counter, siting the reason that pre-booking of Covid Test appointment 'on arrival' at Kolkata Airport (CCU) was a mandatory requirement, even if I was not traveling from (or through) any of the 19 (nineteen) 'AT-RISK' countries notified by Govt.of India for the purpose of International Arrival. Moreover, Air-suvidha form of Govt of India which I had pre-filled with required documents, never asked me or redirected me to any Covid test pre-appointment site 'on arrival' by the international passenger. The QA executive at the Houston (Texas, USA) air-port check in counter informed me about this about this and said it has come from their internal memo. They even denied issuing me a copy or to take any photo of the same internal note. Though as per our understanding the same is not required as per Govt of India's latest guidelines in related to international passengers arriving in any of the Indian airports (including Kolkata). My subsequent telephonic call to Qatar Airways Customer Care centre also did not help. They only could inform me to send a mail using 'feedback' link in the Qatarairways official site and ensured that it would be replied within 12 hours. Even after making a complaint (through Feedback link in QA official website), I have not yet received any reply from them even after 4 days (besides an automated acknowldgement) of my complaint. In none of their earlier communication to me, neither Qatarairways nor by 'Kayak' / Indian Eagle, this requirement (even if it was mandatory) was ever been ever communicated to me. Suffered a huge loss due to this. Very much disappointed with the Qatar airways.

Pros: "Very poor Service on a 16 hour flight"
Cons: "Houston airport qatar airways check in office has 4 counters and 2 were for people who electronically checked in and they were only a few and other 2 counters were for the huge line. Need more counters. Doha airport has majority of Indian national personell at check in and luggage checkins. They have to learn some manners and be polite with people. Rudeness is a turn off passengers who are tired"

Cons: "Extra baggage was charged $250 for 1 extra baggage when other airlines change $70. Also on the Qatar Airway site it states that after 3 hours of the flight if seats are available business class upgrade would cost much less and this was not the case. They wanted $2000 for the upgrade."

Pros: "Service was excellent with very polite staff."

Pros: "The service on Qatar airways was excellent as always. The seats were comfortable and the flight attendants provided a 5 star service throughout the flight."
Cons: "The playlist for the movies was old and needs to be cycled more often to allow the passenger greater selection. There were an adequate selection of tv shows however these were limit d to only a few titles."
Pros: "Very nice staff."
Cons: "Lack of diversity with the area crew. It would be good to have some Black area crew staff."
Pros: "Good service, clean aircraft, friendly crew"

Cons: "i had to wait for a wheelchair a long as i requested long time ago. i hate this flight"
Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."
Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"
Cons: "Everything, the food and movies are old, beside all that the flight late and my connection left and no one apologist for that!!!"
Cons: "Out of Vegetarian food. As per them it was because ticket was booked less than 24 hrs"
Pros: "This has been one the good experience I had in so many years of travel"
Cons: "I requested a special meal but was not given what I wanted. But overall decent food"
Pros: "The foods on the plane and the time as they said it happened I mean no delay."
Cons: "The most thing the foods were hot and fresh."
Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful. Qatar Airways is great about providing pillows, blankets, ear plugs and eye masks. Really good food as well."

Pros: "It was a good flight. I'd give it 4 of 5 stars."
Pros: "2 bag checks allowed and being giv n th option to check in an additional carry on at no charge."
Cons: "Boarding was hodge-podge. Seats are way too close together for a long haul...person's tray in front of me was in my face the entire trip and she didn't bother inclining throughout so had to eat my meals like a contortionist. Cramming more seats into a finite space seems to be what all airlines are doing these days. This of us whom are above average in height are forced to insure a more painful and uncomfortable flight as a result."
Pros: "The plane was neat, clean and the services was world class. I was made to feel at home with service always at my finger tips."
Cons: "Nothing to report."
LONG flight, courteous, friendly and helpful staff. Plane neat as a pin. Food great by current airline standards. Flights on time to the minute - what else could you ask for?
I was seated near a big gentleman and being a big guy it was quite uncomfortable during the entire trip. The service was excellent by the crew
Swiss shouldn't operate another second until they have their customer service figured out. You can't reach anyone at the company. 0 accommodations for you in case you need to make changes.
Cons: "There was no food ..."
Cons: "Better choice of movies and classical music"
Pros: "The crew was quite pleasant and friendly - very accomodating"
Cons: "Entertainment system is outdated, the food was only passable. The chocolate was nice"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Seats were decently comfortable - appreciated blanket and pillow for long haul flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system is dated. Screens froze often, were not very touch sensitive and the sound was pretty bad (on mine, would only provide sound to one ear, so I had to turn up other bc of poor quality and ended up w a headache.) Also, bathrooms were gross; ran out of paper and floors were "soiled""
Pros: "I loved that every seat had a pillow, blanket and head-phones waiting. The movie selection was great, too.The service was excellent. Love having metal utensils, and not plastic."
Cons: "No fault of the airline, but when passengers recline their seat backs all the way, it's very difficult for the person behind. Two vegetarians meals were offered - which is ok, but I was unsure if either had sufficient protein; plus the side dishes were all starches."
Pros: "The food was amazing"
Pros: "Crew Was very friendly , smiley, and welcoming."
Cons: "Movie selection could have been better, but was ok."
Pros: "the CREW WAS FRIENDLY AND CELEBRATING EASTER WITH THE GUESTS"
Cons: "THE FOOD WAS ADEQUATE, GIVEN THAT WE WERE ON AN AIRPLANE"
Pros: "A nice crew n my seat next to me was empty so I can sleep well..."
Cons: "Maybe give every passenger a bottle of water..."
Pros: "The food was great. The service is excellent. Swiss Air gets an A+."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "Place for the legs and better food"
Cons: "The seats in the economy cabin are cramped together. If the person in front of your leans back you are almost trapped in your seat. There is little leg room and the cushioning is not enough for a long distance flight. There is no boarding control. People just line up and get on the plane in any order."
Cons: "the seat did not reclined, it was broke. travel with my wife on different seat my wife had a broken knee and they assigned a seat smack in the middle of the isle and she told me she almost past out because she could not move I had a passenger in the back that was kicking my seat every few minutes and I woke up every time I went to sleep"
Pros: "Best trip ever, flight crew fantastic. Great hospitality from the crew, pleasant and very personable. Will definitely fly Swiss Air again."
Pros: "i liked the food and the crew. they were nice."
Cons: "the flight was good. nothing to not like."
Pros: "A very friendly and attentive crew and a decent meal. Comfort is still iffy in coach but better than most American airlines. Good selection of movies to pass the time."
Cons: "Seats in coach are cramped and some have an electrical box under the seat in front of you, so there is no room for your legs or carry on bag. Bathrooms keep getting smaller to jam in more seats."
Pros: "Everything, but the lack of entertainment."
Cons: "The lack of entertainment."
Cons: "Nasty passport control person at gate check in"
Pros: "Helpful staff and pleasant easy flight."
Cons: "I don’t appreciate the bar being set so high, because now other flights will seem sub-par"
Pros: "The flight to Zurich was delayed so I would have missed my connecting flight. We were automatically rebooked on British airways which got us home three hours sooner than the Swiss air connections. If they did the rebooking, I find that a real plus but can not rate them on anything else."
Pros: "Even though the flight was very short, the team moved quickly through the cabin ensuring everybody had a drink and a snack. They looked quite concerned when I turned down the pretzel sandwich, so I accepted and found it quite good! Also, team made sure my parent with reduced-mobility had a good boarding and transfer experience."
Cons: "As always, seats are narrow. And the "neighbors" were normal-sized. The usual struggle for elbow "air-space" occurred."
Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."
Pros: "Excellent crew, shiny disposition"
Cons: "Entertainment: not many new movies worth watching. Not enough TV programs offered."
Pros: "The flight ,food entertainment was very good. But I don't understand the SWISS airline logic. When I did the check in in Prague and got my boarding pass the told me that the system picked me to have the additional random checkup at Zurich airport. Its ok. If it’s done for security reason why to tell the people ahead of time that they will have additional checkup of bags and personal stuff. If you want to do it for security reason do it ( I want to be safe) but don’t do it for the check mark , it doesn’t make any sense and doesn’t protect us."
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer from HK to Western Europe and it’s a problem transversal to the majority of the airlines. Service quality drops significantly when coming to Asia. Flights to Europe provide exceptional service."
Pros: "on time, good food, pleasant service"
Pros: "The next best thing to the hard-working and kind crew was the lighting design. Meals were OK, and I was delighted that the vegan meals I ordered for my travel companion were right there as ordered. Not a common occurrence of late, I’m afraid, so I congratulate Swiss one getting this one right."
Cons: "Legroom is non-existent. This was by far the most uncomfortable aircraft I have ever flown on, with the possible exception of an Ilyushin 62 operated by Tarom in 1983. I felt bad for the man in front of me, with my knees in his back. That is, until he reclined his seat and put my video screen in my face. Not much to watch anyway, but it was impossible to lean forward at all. Boarding at JFK was rather chaotic."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Super slow boarding. Long lines at check in"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive. I was impressed at the amount of food we received through out the flight. My family and I enjoyed our flight with Swiss airlines and will definitely use them next time we travel."
Pros: "Swiss is already a great company and yesterday it just got better : I got upgraded on business class between Geneva and New York and it was a very nice treat, the service was perfect, the food excellent, the seat was very comfortable. Thank you SWISS !"
Pros: "Loved the crew and movie options, the hydrating must in the bathroom was awesome!"
Cons: "I wish the seats were more comfortable"
Cons: "Paucity of games that might appeal to non children."
Cons: "The flight was late and I almost lost my connecting flight."
Pros: "It was quick and the crew was really nice!"
Cons: "No organization for boarding. It didn't matter what class you are in, everyone boards at the same time. business class o. The plane we were on was just the front seats....they were not larger seats."
Cons: "Customer services fly attendece great services"
Pros: "Good service, space for people and luggage"
Cons: "Less than great food, but everyone else is the same"
Pros: "I fly this line often, SWISS is immeasurably better than ElAl. The planes are modern and include an in-flight entertainment system, the food is light years better, the staff more considerate and attentive."
Cons: "It wasn't Swiss//"
Cons: "People who handle Swiss"
Pros: "In general it was perfect. Chocolate from Suiss at the end of the flight is just amazing!"
Cons: "Because it was a long flight, we would have liked to see a bit more the staff passing around slowly, so we could have asked for water in the night. The seats were not as incredible than the first flight from Spain to Zurich."
Pros: "the captain was great"
Cons: "our flight attendant was impatient and bossy two days after the flight, my husband had to be taken to the emergency room - diagnosed with pulmonary embolism SWISS MUST DO A WAY BETTER JOB CALLING ATTENTION TO REGULAR EXERCISE ON THE PLANE!!"
Cons: "Passengers crowding the lane"
Cons: "Would have been 5 stars overall if not for two hours of a child kicking me seat and occasionally poking my arm."
Pros: "i got a free upgrade to Business Class... which was super awesome! everything about it was great! the regular Economy Class i had on the way there was perfectly good as well. but Business Class was just the best all around."
Cons: "the ridiculous checking-in / boarding process. seems like showing my passport like once or twice would work. it did on my way there. for some reason it was needed like 17,000 times with ridiculously understaffed lines needing to service several hundred people on the way back. absurd."
Pros: "Excellent flight attendants."
Cons: "The boarding process for the economy class seems a little chaotic since there is no distinctions by zone or seat row. The result is a surge of people right when they announce boarding for that cabin."
Pros: "Crew let me sleep!"
Cons: "nothing to report since I slept!"
Pros: "Outstanding and conscientious crew."
Cons: "Seats continue to get more narrow and rows are moved closer and closer. However, the Turkish Air seats are among the most comfortable, relatively speaking."
Pros: "My seat was very comfortable. The inflight entertainment was great. I always love the food on Turkish Airline flights. Check in was easy."
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late. The attendants were a bit cranky....usually they are great on this flight."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "My seat wasn't working properly and wasn't comfortable."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was professional. The food and entertainment was good."
Cons: "It is too cramped in the toilets and seating area."
Cons: "Food was late and terrible seating arrangements were horrible they placed my infant in a different section don’t recommend it if you are old or traveling with family"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable. Narrow and hard."
Cons: "My seat."
Pros: "Service, professionalism"
Cons: "Food is good but very bland."
Cons: "Narrow space between seats"
Pros: "Love the food, service and movies."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was great"
Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "The seat was very tight and behind me was kid that make messy and noisy to much , and one of the women was smelling very bad"
Pros: "Everything went perfect."
Cons: "Leg room especially between Houston and Istanbul fo"
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."
Cons: "My husband's passport expires in March of 2018, 4 months from travel dates and we weren't allowed to travel because it has to be 6 months. We booked our tickets in August of 2017, Turkish Airlines could've told us this. During booking, they ask for passport expiry date, what's the point if you're not going to tell us in advance and wait till our travel date to tell us this information. We couldn't travel on our vacation as planned and we were charged an additional $3,000 to change our tickets."
Pros: "The ground and flight crews were outstanding. Boarding was easy in Houston. I got to see the flight crew handle a medical emergency and saw that they were well prepared, efficient, and concerned. The food and entertainment were fine. I felt like the seat space was better than on British which I often use. I had an empty seat next to me however. I was impressed that the flight crew moved a taller gentleman to a premium (exit) seat to accommodate his extra tall stature. He didn't ask, but they wanted him to be comfortable."
Cons: "The airport in Istanbul is pretty manageable. They changed the gate on us twice for the connection, which meant a bit of walking. But the crowd was pretty manageable compared to LHR."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines sells you a long layover business class ticket but then cannot deliver the promised hotel as American passport holders cannot leave the airport So enjoy your 22 hour layover in the gate area This is fraud This change in visa for USA passport holders was known for weeks but they chose not to let customers know when booking the tickets Kayak You should take this up with Turkish Airlines as this is blatantly false advertising and you are supporting this fraud on your site by not highlighting the restrictions"
Pros: "Food quality and robust Entertainment options"
Cons: "1. Economy seat rows too close together making seat reclines very intrusive. 2. Also, flight attendants did not request people to sit up during meals which made eating very difficult in my case. 3. Bathrooms were very dirty during the last 1/3 of the flight and remained so, including no toilet paper and paper towels. 4. No second serving for refreshment beverages during flight."
Pros: "crew was wonderful."
Cons: "leg room slightly tight for 12 hour flight."
Pros: "Food was good on both flights."
Cons: "Seating was terrible. We were in the 2nd row of the normal seats on the right side of the plane. The space between the rows of seats was much to tight, so I had to turn my legs to the side to fit into the space. I am 6'. However, I noticed that the row across from me had about 4" inches of additional space so I am thinking that the row I was on was set in error. This needs to be fixed. Also, they were much to late in turning on the air conditioning as we loaded and waited for takeoff."
Pros: "The flight crew was great. The ride was smooth"
Cons: "The food was ok....Not an option for vegetarian"
Pros: "The food and boarding went fine."
Cons: "There was no air in our section of the plane. The entire flight from Houston to Istanbul was miserable. It was 85 degrees or higher, and every chance we got to complain to a flight attendant was met with dismissal. We were told they were trying to fix it, but really there's nothing they could have done, and they shouldn't have made it sound like if we just waited a little the problem would get fixed. Not only was it hot, but there was no actual air flow of any kind, and as a person with Asthma this was extremely uncomfortable. Our section was right behind the first class section, and the flight attendants kept trying to keep us separated with the curtains, even though the only way we were getting any air was from that cabin. We consistently requested them to leave the curtains open in the hopes that some air would make it's way to us, but there was little change. Some families with newborns were moved to first class, and some passengers were able to scout out and find other available seats throughout the plane, but for the majority of us in that section, we had no air, and were treated very poorly for as much discomfort as we were going through. There was no apology and little acknowledgement to the problem at hand and I felt personally very disrespected by the whole experience."
Pros: "The crew was good and courteous. The food was pretty good.great entertainment options."
Cons: "Could not access the wifi."
Pros: "I was very impressed that I am already looking to travel again with the airline on my next travel!"
Cons: "all of it"
Pros: "Flight left on time. Crew was friendly and was multilingual. Entertainment on our personal monitors was good."
Cons: "Overall it was a good flight but since I was not familiar Turkish Air, there were some glitches. Although I'm not wheelchair bound, I have great difficulty walking distances with fear of falling. I was never offered some assistance by the Houston airport or the airline at this point. The seating on the plane is difficult to maneuver for a disabled person. The flight was OK except for cramped spaces. The flight left on time and that was good considering Houston had just gone through the hurricane."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seat. Very narrow walk way to lavatory."
Cons: "After ordering Asian vegetarian meal, I got pasta. That was disappointing"
Pros: "They went above and beyond to ensure comfort"
Pros: "I like the food in the air craft it was good, but the crew seemed not wanting to speak inglish The are more willing to serve turkish speakers, They were not even able to solve seat problem. that I and my next seat guy decided to solve the issue by offering our seats to them so that they can sit together, the crew spoke poor english and we were held up by that seat problem, ask that crew member they will tell you what happend, After we gave up our saets to random girls who were also angry about turkish airline, we were able to take off for nairobi And yes the coffee store by the cafe nero and nearly all business refused to give us a wifi And turkish airport offers wifi to only those who have a turkish phone number that is so very low Shame on turkish airline for treating us the give us a free rides we are their bussiness and we will make sure that we stop giving our bussness It looks like they took their customers for granted and we will just tollered it but I will not and many people whom I know will not It is simply desaster... 0% service from the time you come to the airport untill boading time I had to ask about 5 deffrent men to tell me if where I was terminal. One but none of them know what i was saying And at the time my flight was sopposed leave 7:50 so I was freaking out And no one helping at that crtical moment I finaly got the delay flight info after running somany times up and down the road"
Pros: "The overall experience was good"
Cons: "The food is not so good."
Pros: "The food on board was better than average."
Cons: "The whole operation was shabbily done. Because of a Turkish airlines' flight delay, we wouldn't be able to make our connecting flight to Venice from Istanbul. So the agents booked me and my traveling companions on DIFFERENT flights the next day, long after we had paid to be getting to Venice. It took a long time and a lot of work on my part to get our tickets corrected to all be on the same flight, and the whole thing was very unprofessional. The lower price for Turkish airlines is not worth it when you have to spend an entire day of your vacation sitting in the Turkish Airlines airport hotel because Turkish Airlines can't properly get you to your destination on time."
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "food was good."
Cons: "When I got Istanbul Ataturk Airport, they left me in baggage area with my wheel chair. I had to carry my two luggage through the exit door."
Pros: "This was the best coach experience I've ever had. Food was great, tv screens were large, little bags with earplugs, slippers... were provided. Other airlines could take some pointers on how to treat passengers on long, overseas flights."
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: "Food was good. Entertainment was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but that wasn't the main problem. Went to the wrong gate for my connecting flight, Turkish air rep at the gate checked my boarding pass, didn't say a word about me being at the wrong gate. Tgere was no announcement of any kind (found out later, Turkish sir doesn't do announcement at the Istanbul airport. No clue as to why). Thought, tgere was another delay and by the time I asked, it was too late to catch my flight and that's when I got a full dose of every single person w Turkish air trying to stiff me with the most outrageous penalty for changing Nguyen my ticket. Started out at $1114 on a $758 ticket, then went down to $925 and if I stay over night, down to $750. Seriously? Rude, talking down at me and telling me that if I don't pay the penalty, my return ticket will be cancelled. I keep getting bounced from one person to another being told to wait here and wait there then I finally got so sick of all of it, bought a new connecting flight online, spending the night in Istanbul and will see what will happen w my return flight to the US. I call this 'theft' as if i buy an entire new ticket from Istanbul to Cairo then back to the US online, it will cost me less than the penalty they're trying to get me to pay. Shame on you Turkish airline!! You'd think w all the issues they're having w tourism in their country these days they'd care about not doing this kind of mistreatment of their clients."
Pros: "Direct flight from Houston to Istanbul. Ran on time, and food was good."
Cons: "Seats were crammed in as close as possible. I've never had such little room on a flight this long. This is a really long flight, so I'd probably see if I could find a more comfortable airline next time, even if it cost me a little more cash."
Pros: "Good chow, decent beer, and stewardesses that can walk straight down the aisle!"
Pros: "Good food and excellent service from the crew."
Pros: "From extra free bag, to all the little things they give you to make you feel much more comfortable, to the scrumptious meals and constant attendants attentiveness to passengers needs. Loved everything!!! Especially the way we can follow our route on the screens."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Flight attendant didn't instruct the passenger infront of me that during having food he have to upright his seat"
I booked thru JUSTFLY.com for DELTA AIR PARTNER = AIR FRANCE. AIR FRANCE was late to IAH, my departure airport. THIS CAUSED ME TO MISS ALL MY CONNECTIONS. AFTER 7 PHONE CALLS to BOTH DELTA AIR (who partners with AIR FRANCE) and to JUSTFLY.com my FLIGHT CHANGE and REFUND were DENIED. HINT: Don't use DELTA. Don't use JUSTFLY.com --Dan (OCT. 2022)
First flight on Delta and I was impressed. Tickets are a little more expensive. However, great entertainment and they even offer complimentary earbuds. I think their economy seats are slightly better than other planes. Thumbs up for me!
Smooth boarding, early departure and early arrival in Atalanta. Great trip.
I had a seat that would not recline.
Smoothest landing I've ever had! Delta flights are usually quality.
On time to a t. The lead flight attendant Cameron was so kind helping us with luggage as we got on with our two little ones and then gave our son a treat as we headed off.
The flight attendant was really solid, concerned and considerate… went out of his way to find what wasn’t even offered. Just phenomenal!
Very friendly and relaxed service
The flight from Sydney to Adelaide was never ticketed and I was stranded in Sydney! Worst experience ever!
It was so smooth…it was so nice to hsve no issues flying. This was the first time in a while that everything was effortless Thank you
Good but delta needs to be more upbeat about the boarding process in Atlanta
There was a storm brewing in NYC but you would never know it from the flight. Great experience and barely any turbulence considering the storm.
Just a standard Delta flight: comfortable, excellent flight attendants. We had a direct flight, seated in Delta Comfort Plus, so it had a lot going for it, nevertheless, it was a good flight…
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "With flying there is nothing perfect all the time. I was able to sleep on the flight and had a place for my carry-on luggage. I wish unboarding was mad less complicated."
Cons: "Less announcements about masks we get it We don’t need instructions on hand washing Drink service needed"
Pros: "Competent crew"
Cons: "Too many people, especially children running up and down aisles during flight. Not adhering to COVID guidance. None of the crew addressed this ☹️"
Cons: "Communicating take off time!!! It changed multiple times by one three hours and ended up flying the next day!"
Pros: "Very professional crew. Nice equipment. Very pleased."
Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Always late to depart. Seating was cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Just the crew was super sweet and amazing. Everything else sucks. My seat won't recline and the flights get delayed all the time. Worst was the state LaGuardia is in right now."
Cons: "More on time performance would be great from Delta. Seats that actually recline and not get stuck. Screens in all the seats to enjoy entertainment."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and communicated well. They also had a friendly attitude."
Cons: "A 1 hour wait for wheelchair assistance in Houston and then a 30 minute delay for wheelchair people to take my mom to baggage claim. Then the wheelchair attendant kept complaining she wouldn't receive a good tip to take us to the Lyft pickup area."
Cons: "The flight had over six hours in combined delays!!!"
Cons: "Pay close attention when boarding in Cabo as they board multiple flights out of the same gate and it could be easy to get on the wrong bus."
Pros: "New plane, video in every seat"
Cons: "Organizing boarding better. Confusion in rules."
Pros: "Can’t do anything about bad weather-we got through despite a weather delay. Crew was terrific."
Cons: "Crew could be on time for work so the flights aren’t delayed"
Pros: "Delta personnel at DTW knew they were overwhelmed and did everything they could to mitigate the problems."
Cons: "Delta should have had more than 3 staff on to check in 300 people."
Pros: "Everyone was very courteous, the plane took off on schedule and arrived at our destination early. Also got a complimentary upgrade to Comfort Plus."
Cons: "Ticket price was a bit much, the seats and aisle inside the plane are only made for skinny people. Aisle was barely longer across than my foot, and the guy next to me was a bit bigger than average, leaving me to have to scrunch in my seat the whole flight. Lots of elbows, butts and hips knocking into my shoulders as people boarded."
Pros: "The staff & crew were friendly. I liked having access to free entertainment. I liked being able to see the tracking of my checked bag (notifications)."
Pros: "The flight was probably only half booked, the crew was awesome, very attentive and accommodating. Legroom at seat 13A was plenty. Also the fact that messaging is free is convenient."
Cons: "No food to purchase. The flight was over dinner time. Boarding - the ground staff’s announcements weren’t very intelligible."
Cons: "Nothing everything smooth"
Pros: "I liked the flight attendant in first class. Unfortunately I was not in first class"
Cons: "I did not like the attitude of the obese old man (I, too, am an obese old woman) as I saw it toward some of my cabin mates."
Cons: "Seats are hard to get comfortable in. Headrests are awkward"
Pros: "On time, professional boarding, clean comfortable planes, skilled pilots and professional crew. What more could you ask for."
Cons: "All good."
Pros: "How they take off and land"
Cons: "The price versus other companies"
Pros: "The plane was really cool. Some more advanced technologies than other Airline companies. Crew was good too."
Cons: "Issue happened with my landing. Didn't make it in time to next gate. Delta did everything they could to blame me, insulted me on The phone and definitely provided the worst customer service"
Pros: "I love Delta airline this is what airline I pefer to go with whenever I fly anywhere they are the way for me such happy ppl and so much help."
Cons: "On one of my flights the Wi-Fi was down so it killed my entertainment but the flight wasn't long so it wasn't so bad for me"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable flight. Seats are to close to each other"
Cons: "Hurricane Irma, I was lucky enough to get a refund do to the natural disaster."
Pros: "Availability of flight. Quick flight, on time. Signage at PDX is good. Easy to find where you need to be"
Cons: "Layover, confusing mob line at checkin."
Cons: "This flight was on a Transavia codeshare with Delta and a real downer after coming from a Delta One business class segment. An uncontrolled mass boarding, crammed in seating, no amenities and charges for a drink of water made this a pretty crappy flight. The crew was nice though."
Pros: "Like the online check in and advanced seat assignment"
Cons: "It's only a 45 min flight so no ptoblems"
Cons: "Delta costumer service was terrible. Cancelled my trip twice. They lied to us saying that they were going to give vouchers for hotel, that we were going to be automatically booked for next flight and that our bags would arrive with our flight. Waited 7hs to talk to an agent in the airport. 24h wait in Atlanta had to sleep in airport. They wanted me to wait three days in atlanta. They forced me to check a carry on because they didn't have room in the plane. They told me my bag would arrive with my flight. It never did. I still dont have by only bag. Unbelievable."
Pros: "gate personnel delivered bad news routinely"
Cons: "contingency planning was zero to get flight crews to next flight..."
Pros: "Boarding time and schedules were as expected or faster and good attention from the flight crew."
Cons: "Breakfast was mediocre for First Class."
Pros: "Entertainment good. Service good."
Cons: "Disembark a disaster with broken jetway"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I don't get it.. why airlines have no pride? Tickets are expensive! Fuel is lately cheap.. a Don't get it.. why do they keep crying and act like poor helpless companies? You are connecting 2 major cities in the US... can you please have some pride and offer a Nice airplane and not a crappy old one? Can you have some service going beyond just a soda? It doesn't make sense! When you fly in Europe with any major airline company (not low cost..), no matter how long or short the flight is, minimum you get a sandwich and abundance of drinks.. not with Delta (or any other american airline company).. pontless. We always get treated like cattle.. but they like keeping the prices of tickets expensive, don't they???"
Pros: "Always have great experience with Delta flight attendants and staff. The entertainment on mobile phone was a really nice add-on, I had never seen before."
Cons: "Flight was delayed in taking off, waiting for connecting passengers. Plane was old, which is most Delta planes, but this one showed it. The tray table looked like it was from the 70s or 80s. Flying into Midway instead of O'hare was anticlimactic."
Pros: "Rebooked to Atlanta because of a delay."
Cons: "Delta notifications and Kayak notifications were giving me conflicting information, however once I arrived at the Houston airport a Delta representative clarified my issues."
Cons: "Airline food could always be better. It wasn’t bad though."
Pros: "Friendly, quick and efficient crew! Great food too!! My favorite part when in Houston, Texas my starting point, was that I never had to do the self check in, y’all actually had “real” people going the job!!"
Cons: "Boarding in order, by the seat numbers. That’s the only thing y’all can improve on. It was my first time booking with Lufthansa, and I will definitely book with y’all again."
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "Crew was competent"
Cons: "The plane was hot the entire flight"
Cons: "The first leg to Frankfurt was 6 hours late. Missed connection, missed next possible connection, and waiting in line to try to get last possible flight out. Everyone's schedule has been turned upside down."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "Flights being on time. Friendlier staff. They would t have misplaced my luggage."
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: "Lufthansa are excellent. Makes the US carriers look awful in comparison. Good seats, great service, on time, zero complaints."
Cons: "Some of the other passengers were annoying"
Pros: "Great customer service!"
Pros: "Seat was excellent. I like the blanket and more than anything real silverware...unfortunately for bad food"
Cons: "Food real bad, hope it will be better from Frankfurt"
Cons: "Small plane, a price for everything."

Pros: "Staff was really good"
Pros: "Crew was helpful"
Cons: "The plane was 1 hour late and the plane wasn't even at the gate for its expected departure time. The boarding process was too long and take off took too long, thus causing me to miss my connecting flight. So that I missed my Saturday interview."
Pros: "The airbus looked nice, crew was friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, the seats were ok. The USB port did not work and the touch screen was unresponsive, hard to use. Four bathrooms in the middle of the plane did not seem sufficient, toilet paper running out, long wait."
Pros: "On time, pleasant, comfortable."
Cons: "Honestly all good!"
Pros: "I like everything about this airline. The entire crew is always happy to serve and extremely helpful. The food is very good and served hot. When our flight was delayed and it was questionable whether we'd make our Lufthansa connection, there was a small bus with 2 Lufthansa crew members waiting for us on the ground - they escorted us through Customs and directly to the door of the airplane so that we'd make the flight. Service I have never gotten on an American airline!"
Pros: "Always have been more than pleased with Lufthansa. Perfect experience. Sincere thanks go to all staff."
Cons: "Nothing. All perfect."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "Hot in cabin and service poor. Seat not comfortable still prefer united clasd"

Cons: "Ground crew at Frankfurt was felt to be discriminatory in behaviour and we had to walk to next departing gate after waiting for our wheelchair."
Pros: "Nice big plane, good/frequent beverage service."
Cons: "Didn’t arrive on time. Breakfast was weird and flavorless."
Pros: "I like everything. Everything orderly and perfect."
Cons: "The screen for viewing movies were not functioning all the time."
Pros: "Well in time"
Cons: "We were not offered veg and non veg options. We were only offered a vegetarian meal. A minute later, the gentleman behind us was presented the two options. We disregarded this on the first flight, but when it happened on the next flight similarly, we asked if we could get our children the chicken meal. The air hostess explained they had no more. But she presented the two options to the fellow passenger behind us. We were extremely offended by the way we were treated. The airlines offers no entertainment for children as do other airlines. In fact, one air hostess went so far as to ask me to tell my Lil one to MUTE the volume of his ipad."
Pros: "excellent service and crew"
Pros: "Excellent crew-seats were decent-not as good as Emirates., but doable. Seats from Frankfurt to Bengaluru in India were smaller than US domestic airlines-a feat thought unachieveable!!"
Cons: "Food was terrible-choice for dinner was Salmon or pasta with tomato sauce! Obviously picked the salmon which was sitting on a bed of soggy rice and a dinner roll that was so cold, I could cool my drink with! It was also hard enough to use for self-defense. The entertainment system was so bad, the kid behind me was punching the screen!! It took me 5 minutes to wait for the screen to respond and it was not much larger than my phone. Again, miss Emirates-this will be my last flight on Lufthansa!!!"
Cons: "Disaster customer service .. cancelled and mtssed flights"
Cons: "Nothing that i can think of."
Pros: "Very helpful and nice cabin crew, very tasty food! And comfortable sitting. Would recommend to a friend."
Cons: "That damn crying kid behind me that kept kicking my chair and crying the whole 8 hours."
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "They did it again, lost my bag for the emth time. But this time its seems to be more complicated than previous times this has happened. Just hope i’ll get my bag back eventually."
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: "Staff was nice. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The touchscreen tv seevice was the slowest I have ever seen. The entertainment options were very limited, even less optikns for kids. The back of my chair was not reclining. The food was terrible. Kids did not eat anything at all."
Pros: "I enjoyed my experience but the food was not that great ."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "The seats are normal, the food was fine, but the service was lovely, smooth and always with a smile. We left arrived in Frankfurt almost on time and I would definitely fly Lufthansa again!"
Pros: "Flight crew was decent."
Cons: "The flight was late in departing and then rerouted from Frankfurt to Manchester causing many passengers to loose connection. The reasongiven was a crew scheduling issue. Compensation upon arrival at Frankfurt was nil unless you asked and if you did you got an insulting 7 euros which barely even paid for coffee. No apology to people given just a "business as usual, it is your problem attitude". At arrival in Frankfurt there was a pass the buck attitude where any questions of connecting flights, and reroutes was forwarded to a Lufthansa counter that was NOT manned by anyone. Very frustrated."
Pros: "There service helping us with the boarding process was phenomenal!"
Pros: "Extremely roomy seats! So glad to have the room after a cramped flight from Europe!"
Pros: "It was UA. Not Lufthansa."
Pros: "I'm even still here i miss it my flight i have told they are going put me to another flight but I have not received any call yet from"
Cons: "I'm still waiting"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment. Everything fine."
Cons: "My luggage was ripped open."
Cons: "A disaster but was able to arrive 5 hours later to my destination. Better than a day late."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled. I miss two days of my vacation. I won't leave until this evening. The customer services is suck, waiting for almost 40m before someone answer the phone. Who ever answer the phone I had a hard time of understanding him."
Pros: "The service and flight was smooth."
Cons: "Breakfast was terrible. We only got a croissant and jam. It would have been nice to have had an actual meal."
Pros: "Everything on this flight was great. the seats were comfortable, crew was great, good was great and the movie touch screen worked."
Pros: "Like the idea of getting on & having access to decent films from when you get of to when you get off. Cheaper than other flights - by approx. $ 300 - short booking due to funeral."
Cons: "Plane delayed 2hrs, then changed gate & delay reduced to 1hr. Bit of a rough landing. Auto darkening windows - nice idea unless you have the window seat and the sun still coming in when flying above the clouds"
