Airline reviews

Pros: "The food was very nice. The IFE was very nice as well. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The was a lot of profanity used by the attendants that was not necessary. Secondly I reserved a front row seat in online check in, but it did not allow put mean in that seat. Which if they were full would be understandable, but every single one was empty."

Cons: "Food on the menu was not available. Some of us did not get lunch and were being offered bread. Some flight attendants were impatient with pax and unwilling to help especially with regards to Wifi on board , others were impolite"

Pros: "generally good overall for a 14 hour long flight"
Cons: "legroom could always be better for me......but this was similar to most other airlines"

Pros: "Crew, interior, seats"
Cons: "Food was average. Service could be better. For example, my wife and I never got our food at the same time or close enough. We had to ask for food or drinks. They should regularly ask if we need something. Empty water bottles (up to 3) were sitting on my table for hours till we landed."

Pros: "The crew was nice, and there was sufficient overhead space for my bag."
Cons: "I've flown hundreds of times, and this was the most most unpleasant flight I've ever taken. My seat didn't recline, the entertainment console was not working properly, and I had almost no legroom due to the design of the seat. The temperature was unbearably hot. And I didn't get my special meal."

Pros: "The seat was not up to the usual Emirates business class standard. The lights were never completely dimmed."

Pros: "crew was good but seat was too narrow, and there are too many little kids near us."
Cons: "do limit the number of passengers with little children and don't put senior citizens near them."

Pros: "Emirates is the best airline I have traveled with. The Dubai Lounge and general service is just outstanding"

Pros: "General flight was good. Loved the food."

Cons: "Flight was long"

Pros: "Good service by Emirates"

Pros: "The travel kits are much nicer now, appreciated the mattress"
Cons: "The boarding process in ORT was a horrible fail. they didn't announce the boarding of first/business and by the time I arrived at my seat there was almost no overhead room left because people from economy put there bags in the business area. The bathroom was definitely not cleaned enough, I went twice where the floor was soaked, the seat was wet and the sink full of toothpaste. I understand that every passenger should be responsible enough to clean up after themselves, but it was not an enjoyable experience. The crew was friendly enough, but it didnt feel like the personalized service experience that is usually the case (where they introduce themselves, explain the do not disturb sticker etc). Also I think there was something wrong with my seat because it didnt "lay flat" all the way."

Pros: "Upgrade to Business class"

Pros: "I love the positive and can-do attitude of your crew"
Cons: "A 4 year old banging on the back of my seat"

Pros: "A380 flight was very comfortable, with adequate leg room. A great feature for long haul flights. Good food and a very good entertainment system"
Cons: "Good was served late, in both legs. Flight departs at 7 pm but diiner was served after 10 (midnight Dubai time) Which meant our sleep was disturbed and when breakfast was served we had a full stomach."

Cons: "Did not happen. Flight was purchased fraudulently and fortunately was caught by Emirates and Amex. Please REMOVE all my contact information from your website"

Pros: "Wi-Fi"

Pros: "excellent staff and friendly flight attendant."

Pros: "Custom meal. Avml."
Cons: "Not very tasty."

Pros: "The inflight crew was helpful, kind and efficient"
Cons: "Seat head cushion is not comfortable for short prople"

Pros: "We will highly recommend to use this airline. We will try again to flight to any city that we know they will have connections . Is worth it to plan to stay a few days in Dubai. Is a great city , unique, different."

Pros: "Great service, good meal and outstanding entertainment channels"
Cons: "No critical comments to be offered"

Pros: "Flight was quiet and very well organized"
Cons: "I normally choose vegetarian on all my flights, but emirates only has a strictly vegetarian option. Which means vegan - food was not good at all. Sometimes too spicy to even try to eat. I asked to replace my meal on occasion and took the continental breakfast which was great."

Pros: "the food was wonderful, the economy seats were comfy, and the service was superb. I really liked being able to watch movies and listen to music w/o a charge."

Pros: "The great content in the entertainment system and the wifi. Bed was comfortable and the service was fantastic. I also really enjoyed the bar in the upper deck. The A380 is a wonderful machine!"

Pros: "I say that everything was good but overall "excellent" because it is hard to fly for hours upon hours and say that it was excellent. All considered, it was good while Emirates (compared to other carriers) is excellent. These huge airplanes are amazing!"
Cons: "Flying for hours upon hours but nobody can do anything about that. Africa has a routine, including this flight, of filling the cabin full of chemicals - for insects? Prepare to cover your head and face!"

Pros: "The comfortable seats, the entertainment system, the food, the attention given by the flight attendants. A great airline!"
Cons: "The length of the flight, but that's unavoidable."

Pros: "Space and the fact that everything worked. Food was excellant."
Cons: "I always like Emirates."

Cons: "None comes to mind"

Pros: "Entertainment Food Friendly Flight Crews"
Cons: "Had to rush to the next flight in Dubai."

Pros: "The crew were excellent. Very helpful and professional."
Cons: "All good!"

Pros: "Food and Entertainment beat Delta hands down."
Cons: "Unfortunately packed into a row with a lot of big guys"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "It was just ok overall."
Cons: "The first flight was late by over an hour and nobody could tell us why. They also serve food once and you don't get a snack or anything--you don't even see the attendants--for another 10 hours. Then they serve breakfast close to an hour before landing. The crew is constantly telling you to sit as if you weren't allowed to use the toilet at all when the seatbelt sign is on--and it's on the whole time. So you have to be asking permission to use the toilet when you are right next to the toilet door and about to go in because they don't allow you to use it. That's not healthy for someone to hold it."

Pros: "I will only fly Emirates when available to my destination from now on."

Pros: "Again, the crew of Emerites Air are wonderful!"
Cons: "I ate a vegetarian dinner that id not agree with me, and spent the last half of the trip near the bathroom."

Pros: "I liked the boarding and most the crew was excellent"
Cons: "I specified ovo Lacto vegetarian because I eat cheese and diary. I got a stale and very small bread role with strawberry jam, wilted fruit and margarine for the breakfast meal. The non vegetarians got a full plate of croissant, cheese, fruit and jams. When I asked for butter I got no response. I asked three times before I could get some butter as I do not eat margarine. Lunch was wilted and slimy lettuce and tired fruit for dessert. The main meal itself was delicious but I was hungry the whole flight due to the small helping.. Another small but slightly fresher role and margarine again. Next to the non vegetarian meal there was less than half the food. It was very disappointing."

Pros: "Movies and internet"
Cons: "Took too long for food service. We were in middle two seats and my partner was feed and finished before I even got my food. They should go down each side at same time."

Pros: "Crew attitude and helpfulness. Food and beverage."
Cons: "Boarding procedures. Inadequate bathrooms for passenger numbers. Seat width. No economy plus seating."

Pros: "The variety of movies available on ICE"
Cons: "I hated the food. Emirates assumed everyone in Nigeria eats Eba which is absolutely wrong. The hostesses were not friendly as well."

Pros: "The wrap-around head rests help with sleeping. The good size blanket was comfortable and kept me warm. I really liked the bigger entertainment screen and excellent choice of movies and TV programs. I've never had 'Homes International' and 'Don't tell the Bride' on any flights, which are favorites of mine and are very popular.. I fly on 16 flights/year domestic and international. The flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "It was a bit too cold. I was in row 50 on the aisle. I am vegetarian so was pleasantly surprised with the fish curry being on the menu, but couldn't see or taste the fish. A bit disappointing."

Pros: "Both flights were amazing the service in both were excellent including crews too"
Cons: "Is from Jhb to Dubai were not Cartered for our foot socks had to were shoes to keep warm regards the long flight, and cover our eyes too ,but every thing was the best regards that only"

Cons: "Boarding was disorganized. Otherwise everything was good"

Pros: "the crew was professional and efficient on board the plane."
Cons: "seat space was tight. it was hard to get comfortable"

Cons: "Shopping items available."

Pros: "Nice flight attendants."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to leave at 9:50pm and it didn't take off until midnight. The many delays appeared poorly handled and communicated, and I spent an hour on the runway before takeoff."

Cons: "Customer service from the cathy pacific crew are not good at all.. I flight business to and from asia to the USA at least 3-4 times a year.. cathy pacific was such a disappointment.."

Pros: "Been flying CX for years and for some reasons this time all the staff members were excellent. From ground to air crew everyone was well informed, nice and helpful. Another surprise was the vegan meal I ordered. Airplane food in general is disgusting, but this time the vegan meal was delicious."
Cons: "Flying out from JFK is a nightmare, we had to wait for 40 mins on the runway. Not sure if airlines can actually improve that?"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Entertainment is out of date and difficult to use."

Cons: "I booked a window seat, got a middle seat."

Cons: "Docking at an air bridge rather than taking a bus"

Pros: "Yes all of the above"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Not sure why we left and arrived so late, but it was annoying to miss the last flight out of Vancouver to my destination and have to find a hotel and stay the night. I guess lesson learned on expecting flights to always be on schedule. Sometimes things happen and they’re not."

Pros: "The crew is amazing. Particularly the FA in our section was amazing."
Cons: "No outlet charging for smartphone. Only USB charging was available."

Cons: "My seat would not recline."

Pros: "the flight itself was fine. the crew is professional"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and 4 days later I still don't have it. They are not being very helpful at all in recovering it or taking responsibility for it"

Pros: "I really enjoy this airline. The flight was good with good entertainment system. I like the provided pillow and blanket and they make sure the cabin is dark and quiet for sleeping. Food is decent with generous amounts and snacks always available to go and grab."
Cons: "I was fairly squished on this flight at 6'2" with my knees almost touching the seat in front of me. I had more space on another Cathay flight and I think I had a seat in the same class. I took off my shoes and that helped me get a little more room to spread my feet/legs out to get comfortable."

Pros: "The crew was average. Few of them were hospitable and friendly."
Cons: "After allowing first and business class passengers if boarding is done from the tail end that makes things easier and less messy or chaotic. Many airlines does that way and it seems very much civilized approach."

Pros: "The crew was nice. Seat space really cramped"
Cons: "On my return flight from Hing Kong to Vancouver, which is a long flight, the passenger in the seay next to mine slowly encroached on my seat space to an unusual extent. The seats in economy are really cramped!!"

Pros: "Really good flight, no complaints here. Friendly and efficient staff."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Some of the staff were very nice. the plane was not full so was able to sleep whole flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hour. we get on plane. then an announcement that in previous flight plane hit a bird so they needed to dissemble the plane. we got off plane at 11:26 pm. waited there. received a text announcement it would leave now at 2 am. the staff on site did not announce this information till 12:45 am. we waited and then got good news flight was going to take off. not in a logical way the plane took off all our luggage off the plane. and then could not add our luggage back on to the plane because tsa was now closed. so paperwork for getting luggage was poorly committed. not bright people. I hope my luggage arrives like they say a day later."

Cons: "Wasn’t allowed to book seats until checkin"

Pros: "The food was delicious! And they had a great selection of drinks at no additional price. The crew was very professional and welcoming. Overall so much better than any American airline I have flew with."

Cons: "Flight delayed 13 hours"

Pros: "Staff was welcoming, everything was well organised, food was good. Journey was comforatable ."
Cons: "More choices foe veg meals"

Cons: "Didn’t like the seating arrangement. The check in counter was unwilling to accommodate us, even when we tried to check in four and half hours prior departure. We were unable to seat together for the long flight. On the plane, I noticed 2 family members travel together got aisle seat. I was really disappointed that Cathy Pacific allowed passengers pre-select seat in this method and has no authority or unwilling to accommodate others that flight together. Will not flight Cathy Pacific again."

Pros: "I liked the crew, the food, comfort. Everything made my travel experience great"

Pros: "I traveled economy coming home and was delighted by the amenities that you never see on commercial airlines anymore. On the way to New York I upgraded to premium economy, This was such a nice experience. It was worth the up charge. And two free checked bags? That is unheard of anymore"
Cons: "When I was on the upgraded ticket, I was actually disappointed that we landed early because I was sleeping so well."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Average flight. Nothing special. Pleasant flight crew."
Cons: "Baggage was delayed."

Pros: "Adequate leg room, which is very important in a long haul flight. Punctual."
Cons: "We had lunch and then breakfast, skipping dinner. Considering we were in the place for 14+ hours, dinner instead of either breakfast or lunch would have been good."

Pros: "Nice plane, roomy seats, good food. Much better than other carriers in economy."

Pros: "Food was great, and the business class 777 seats are a delight. And the captain shuts up through the entire flight --- no interrupting your sleep or movie with stupid observations that no-one wants to hear."
Cons: "The quality of the screens (crappy slow resistive touchscreens) is completely unacceptable for business class in 2018. China Airlines screens are VASTLY superior in their hardware, their speed, and the quality of their UI. And running an ad before EVERY movie --- in business?! Talk about an airline having no sense of class. That's a cheap, stupid move."

Pros: "Mostly the amazing staff on the airplane... I'm pregnant and the staff at JFK were very unpleasant and rude."
Cons: "Staff and tsa at JFK"

Pros: "Crew was helpful and accommodating. The food served on this particular flight was outstanding"
Cons: "Typically cramped seats (I know its what I paid for, but still)"

Pros: "They were able to provide drinks and food at a timely matter"
Cons: "The long flight"

Pros: "First time ever taking a roundtrip across the country with this airline and I am ~TO THE MOON~ excited over my experience. Comfortable seats, excellent food, excellent service, excellent movie choices on board. I can't wait to continually book with this airline on every flight I take across the country!"

Pros: "The food - best in the sky"
Cons: "Cathay's business class seats are not as wide at Singapore Airlines'' business class seats"

Pros: "Smooth, delay-free travel from take-off to (smooth) landing on the tarmac! The pilot has some skill to make it like a gliding landing without bumps!"
Cons: "Cathay Pacific does not participate in TSA PreCheck."

Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "Another passenger request me move to a window seat from a front row with leg room seat and it was hard for a big guy to go to and from washroom. Plane was hot and sweat throughout the flight making it very uncomfortable. Ran out of food choices for breakfast really fast."

Cons: "I did not like paying more than the advertised price for my airline ticket... Straight after clicking the confirmation button , I received a call and was informed that the advertised price had increased by $50. It was still affordable so I agreed to this extra charge. Even after 24hours had past, the flight price had not changed online. I was lied to!"

Cons: "We had 1.5 hour delay and when we reached Vancouver airport the car rentals were close and we have to wait 3 more hour till 5:30 Am till they open. We are not happy at all"

Cons: "late boarding."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Professional, cheerful, willing to help. from take off till landing"
Cons: "Seating was atrocious. I specifically asked whether I could get an exit row seat (i am 6'4"). I was even willing to pay the extra 200$ for my partner and myself. I was told that there were no open exit row seats. But on boarding, the entire exit row was empty. It stayed that way through the flight. Super annoying."

Cons: "Though nothing completely egregious, my interaction with crew on the flight were the worst I have ever experienced when traveling. The first was after attempting to go to the bathroom mid-flight. This was an 11 hour flight. I'm not sure whether the captain forgot to turn off the seatbelt sign during the middle of the flight or if he anticipated turbulence, but the seatbelt sign was on for at a minimum, 45 minutes. After waking up I had the urge to go to the bathroom and walked back to try to get there. Once close to the bathroom a flight attending pointed in the other direction and said "sit down and put your seatbelt on." I expressed that I had to go to the bathroom and he again just repeated "go put your seatbelt on." I stood for another few seconds in disbelief that I would really be turned away from using the bathroom in the middle of a flight and during this short time of standing there he again repeated: "go put your seatbelt on." I would like to stress that there was absolutely no turbulence at this time. Whether or not this is protocol and any attendant would have told me the same, the attendant could use lessons in how to properly speak to people by having a better tone AND saying please. Explaining the situation would also be helpful instead of just using your power to command another adult to do something. After returning to my seat, I saw multiple other people also try to get up to go, who received the same fate, so it was obvious he was trying to adhere to the rules, but clearly if the fasten seatbelt sign has been on for over an hour at that point, you should be able to be an adult and put the situation in context; people need to use the bathroom on a long flight. My second poor interaction was at the conclusion of the flight. I was listening to music on my phone and hadn't heard the captain announcement that we should begin to prepare for landing. On ANY other flight I have EVER been on, the crew will come around and verbally ask people politely to put their seat up, return trays to their stored position, and unplug any USB electronics. One of the crew, without asking me first or even making eye contact, came up and unplugged my phone from being plugged in and manually put my seat up to upright position and walked away. This might seem like a simple thing, but you should NEVER touch someone else's property. Further, to place me upright without warning was extremely rude. If this flight had been the only flight I had with Cathay Pacific, I would never fly with this airline again, because it would have seemed to me that your crew lack social skills, are impolite, and may have language barriers. Luckily, my trip was round trip from NY to Bali and as such there were multiple connecting flights, and I had good experiences on all the rest. I really wish I had gotten the name of the 2 individuals I had a poor experience with, as I don't think they will help you in securing future customers."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and the entertainment was great"
Cons: "The other guests were loud and rude on the flight and none of the staff seemed to care."

Pros: "The meal options that were served on this flight were great, and the overall flight was peaceful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather, and this seemed to frazzle the flight crew. Pre-takeoff service of water and juice or champagne was only give to one side of the premium cabin, and when I asked if they would complete it for the other side after take-off was told no. I'm used to Cathay taking our orders and being back what we ask for for a premium experience, however on this trip they just brought everything on carts and asked people what they wanted on the spot, offering no suggestions. Overall the service on this CX 889 flight seemed to be severely underpar for what I expect from Cathay"

Pros: "I love the hot meal they serve."

Pros: "Good service. Love that you can have wine with dinner! Good size blankets provided."
Cons: "They called us to board early and then we stood there for about 10 minutes before they actually started letting people through the gates."

Pros: "Nice service!"

Pros: "Liked the added legroom and seating of ecomomy preferred."

Pros: "Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "The check-in was stressful and congested."

Pros: "service on the flight was very good"

Pros: "All was great."
Cons: "The airline has so many people from far away places waiting too long for their next connections"

Pros: "It is always better when this flight is operated by wide body aircraft, as was the case with A330 this time"

Cons: "Food is not great and the flight was delayed by an hour"

Pros: "It was help full"

Cons: "I like everything. I know most countries dont like turks. But turkish are best nationality. With big hearts."

Pros: "Not like other airlines, they allowed passengers to move to better yet empty seats. Great service, so many thing handed out free (where others charge) Entertainment system is superb as well as food and service. i fly with them all the time, NEVER delayed!"

Pros: "Great options to watch on tv."
Cons: "Flight was late, horrible process at gate of checking passports and items. Should not happen during a layover. This process should take place when checking in."

Cons: "Seats allocation was uncertain until we checked in"

Pros: "Care from the crew and consideration"

Pros: "flight departed Jhb on time and arrived in Istanbul a few mins earlier than scheduled"
Cons: "1.cabin temperature varied from cold to very warm 2.I asked the cabin crew for a blanket but they forgot about it 3.I ordered a whisky with ice - was given half a tot with 2 small blocks of ice 4.only one person was serving drinks and food on my aisle so it was very slow service (other aisle had 2 crew serving)"

Pros: "Food, service, movie selection, wine selection, seats in business class."
Cons: "Unimpressive selection of scotch when compared to competitors."

Pros: "Istanbul Airport has good facilities and F&B options"
Cons: "Flight from Istanbul to Bangkok was delayed for 3.5 hours with no apology and no compensatory measures such as drinks and food or lounge access Power outlets in Istanbul airport are all round plug European with no USB terminals for phone recharging"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "i liked everything"

Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and kind."
Cons: "The check in at MXP took us a lot of time and there was no defined line for people to wait without other people can pass them. Some how there is people who stand in line for 10 minutes and others for 40 minutes, the ground attendants didn’t really cared about it."

Pros: "I've flown with Turkish airlines a few times and compared to other airlines they are amazing. Even on short distance flight (1 hour flights) the offer a sandwich and drinks. If there are delays the pilot explains what's happening instead of leaving us clueless."

Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "My preselected isle seat in the third row, where there is usually more legroom, got switched without notice, and at boarding time I was given a middle seat a lot further back."

Pros: "No complaints about the plane, staff etc and its probably no worse than any other airline"
Cons: "Long overnight flight in Economy Class, little legroom. As I am larger than average and find it hard to sleep on flights, the cramped conditions were extremely uncomfortable"

Cons: "Turkish airlines from Istanbul to Nairobi Announcement for medical personnel or doctor to come help. We pushed the button and the flight attendant came to our row. We unbuckled and we’re ready to get up and he said “ I have an elderly woman but first I need to see your license. In shock we said you need the license for us to be able to help? He said unfortunately that is our policy. I happen to have mine because I brought it along for the medical mission. I showed it to him then he gave some detail still not allowing us to see the person that needed attention:"

Pros: "I'm 6 ft 2. Legspace was adequate, and no silly boxes under the seats like other airlines that obstruct your feet. Great entertainment systems - modern, good selection. Food and staff excellent."
Cons: "Their online checkin systems could operate a bit more smoothly. At one point, I had to go in in person, because the online checkin site had an already past flight from their codeshare partner SAS showing up as the next flight, and I couldn't perform online checkin as a result."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Warm airport and warm plane à/c needed"

Pros: "The entertainment and refreshments on the flight was satisfactory."
Cons: "The sanitation on the flight was disgusting. Trash everhwre, tray tables with stains on them from the previous passengers, stains on the seat cushions, dirty blankets that had stains on them, the bathrooms were foul smelling with fluids on the floors. I am never EVER FLYING TURKISH AIRLINES AGAIN."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"

Pros: "I'm still in turkey. Never flying your airline again delayed missed connecting flight."
Cons: "Everything it was awful. Late"

Cons: "In flight entertainment system was not functioning. Turkish refused to provide hotel in Istanbul as per their policy even after being told by Turkish employees in the USA and France that this would be provided due to my 20 hour layover. I will not fly Turkish again in the future."

Cons: "Food was old"

Pros: "The flight was quite comfortable. We lucked out with only a partially filled flight leaving extra space to sleep. Service was friendly and the food was excellent! I was fed twice on my 9hour flight and once on my 4hour flight. Great in flight entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Ground and air staff"
Cons: "Seats a bit too crowded"

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: "Flights were on time; Crew was pleasant - asked for water and was provided in a minutes; Pilots were great, they have landed smoothly"

Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"

Pros: "Horrible"
Cons: "Asked for a refund, Turkey is a hot spot for terrorism and Americans have been evacuated from this country. Airline would not refund or let me change names on my tickets. I will never deal with this airline again."

Cons: "Great service and on time all the way"

Pros: "Food and Crew"
Cons: "The fact that the boarding was by bus and not through a sleeve detracts from the process."

Cons: "the kosher food was poor"

Cons: "Turkish airlines worth airlines ever. They change our flight from Houston to LA without giving us any choice because they are over booked with 30 passengers and on top gave us longer flight instead of sending us closer to our destination. They lost our bags and discover in LA that most of Turkish airlines passengers lost one of their bags too. we miss our flight from LA to Houston because of bad organizations and We had to sleep in LA one night so to take second day fight to Houston. So bad so frustrating never use Turkish airlines again."

Pros: "This flight had good leg room. The entertainment appeared to be excellent--however I did not use it due to the serious delay and the fact we were flying from 3:00 to 5:00 AM..."
Cons: "Boarding/takeoff on this flight was additionally delayed over an hour. As above, on this leg of the return flight, we didn't receive the meals we initially ordered."

Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"

Pros: "Entertainment system is excellent, food is solid and plentiful."
Cons: "I've flown Turkish a few times before, and they're generally pretty good for the price. This trip was different. Despite Turkish Airlines policies outlined in their "Customer Rights," I received no notification that the flight was delayed 3 hours, and there was no notification at the JoBurg airport until you go to the counter to check in. JoBurg staff - which are Menzies third-party contractors, not Turkish staff - were disorganized, uncommunicative, and unhelpful. Only one person at the check in desk seemed to have authorization to make any changes, so all other agents were running back and forth to speak with him, and not communicating with passengers. It took over an hour to get clarity on the situation and rebook my connecting flight to Washington for a different flight 8 hours later. The only compensation offered was one meal voucher worth R100 (roughly $7). They would not even look at other Star Alliance flights for early arrival in Washington, and said they were not authorized to consider upgrading my ticket. When I called the Turkish customer service, they essentially said "What do you want us to do about it? You have to submit a formal complaint." Boarding was totally disorganized. In theory there are boarding groups, but after business class and all the high-ranking loyalty members, it's pretty much a mad rush. This seems to be the common practice for Turkish now. In general, Turkish has a great entertainment system on all their long-haul flights, with tons of movies - including very new releases - music, games, etc. They also provide complimentary kits with socks, slippers, eye mask, earplugs and dental kit, even for economy passengers. The meals are fairly good for airlines. However, legroom in economy isn't great. I'm 6'1", and had difficulty getting comfortable with my knees jammed into the back of the seat in front of me. On this particular flight, I was in row 18. The cabin crew were frantic, disorganized, and shouting to each other across passengers. One half of our row was served the meal, and the other half had to wait over 30 minutes to be served for some reason. By that time the vegetarian option was no longer available. Crew also had to run back and forth between service carts because they were frequently out of very common beverages (like sparkling water. And ice.), and on two occasions crew left a drawer from a cart full of trash sitting in the aisle. There were several times that crew ran carts into passengers - including once into my knee that was not in the aisle - and didn't even acknowledge doing so. They also stopped the carts in front of occupied lavatories, temporarily trapping passengers. So not terribly professional. While not specifically on this flight, the experience in Istanbul airport with Turkish Airlines' staff was awful. Zero interest in helping, rude and dismissive, and overall terrible."

Pros: "I am usually happy with Delta."
Cons: "Huge smelly person invading my space. Disgusted by his hot sweat on my leg. Used up 10,000 miles and paid too much (watched the fare go down several hundred dollars) and ended up with a middle seat. Not happy."

Pros: "eventless"
Cons: "Although I understand the needed delay, it would have been nice to have been served ice water in the hot cabin, instead of a small cup of tepid water."

Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly and borderline rude. I felt like when I asked for anything or was just up stretching my legs that I was bothering them. There was also quite bit of turbulence in the first two hours- I have traveled a lot and I felt like it took the pilots too long to find a smoother altitude."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats too close. Food lacks salads. Fruit salad tasteless--fruit not ripe--looks good, but no taste."

Pros: "ability to book a later flight when I missed my connection through the delta app."
Cons: "Delays, missed a connection, booked a new connection through the app and that one was delayed as well...what was supposed to be a 3.5 hour experience turned into a much longer one. Seats do not accommodate people over 6'2" abiet very poorly."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was amazing. I will never fly to Europe with anyone else. No joke. Best flying expierence ever."
Cons: "Honestly nothing. From start to finish great time."

Cons: "Flight left without us even though they knew our flight had landed and we were on our way. Then they rerouted us with a longer flight and our luggage didn’t make it."

Cons: "Self-check-in at Munich was unnecessarily complex. Same for procedure to check in luggage. Also, the passport had to be inspected twice despite being already in the secure zone."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentive, I really like the food on Lufthansa"
Cons: "The movie selection was limited and dated"

Cons: "- The extra baggage fees were 5 times higher than the announced on the website which caused a lot of troubles. - The booked special meals (halal) were too spicy and not proper for children at all ( we just wanted normal meals without non-halal ingredients. - No basic medications on the first flight."

Pros: "Just about brand new Airbus airplane, very nice! Everything worked, seats reasonably comfortable for a long flight. Boarding worked well by area of the plane, friendly crew."

Cons: "I was waiting over 1 hr for my suitcase...."

Cons: "Boarding was slow and the plane waited almost an hour after boarding was completed."

Pros: "The fact that I could have upgraded to premium economy. The space available in economy."
Cons: "The length of the flight but it is what it is. I couldn't upgrade to premium economy before arriving at the airport because of this being a code share flight with Lufthansa."

Pros: "Food is provided"
Cons: "Delayed 6 hours on the plane"

Pros: "Excellent service from staff on the flight"
Cons: "Long line-up in Frankfurt at Lufthansa Passport control . Could probably open up the third counter and not just one Business and one Economy? First meal ( Turkey) had something in it that blowded me up all the way to Vancouver! Not sure if it was the vegetables or?? Not nice if you can't walk around and also not great for your neighbor to the right and left. I usually don't experience this with my food that I cook or choose."

Pros: "I travel in so many airline but lufthasen is very good airline i want to travel again"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "when seats recline in economy you can barely get in and out of a seat"

Pros: "Individual screens for all seats with a varied selection of entertainment options. Plenty of room under the seat for my carry-on. (It helped that no one was in the seat next to me.) Beverages were offered frequently. Smooth flight, smooth landing."

Pros: "Thank goodness the movies were good."
Cons: "Had to wait in 5 lines before someone could check our bags. no organization at boarding time. Just a free for all."

Pros: "Air Canada could learn a few things from you - ie, the incredible impact of providing free food and excellence customer service at the checkout and gates."

Pros: "The boarding process is very efficient."
Cons: "Lufthansa’s people are mostly good. But there are some obvious opportunities for people to be more friendly. Also, LH like many others continues to serve cold rolls and cold butter on international flights. KLM warms the rolls! It’s the one small touch that would make Lufthansa’s meal service so much nicer."

Pros: "Not a good experience overall."
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive in Naples with us. We heard nothing from Lufthansa despite making numerous attempts to email and call the airline. Our hotel tried to call as well to see if someone could at least tell us if and when our luggage might arrive.We had to go out and buy clothes and personal items. It was a terrible way to start a holiday."

Pros: "I liked professionalisam of the flight crew from the start till the end of the flight. They were always nice and ready to serve on 10 hours flight."
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Flight got canceled and never got new flight! Also never got money back!"

Cons: "huge plane, no space. painful."

Cons: "Too many controls during boarding"

Cons: "They had overbooked the flight and asked to reroute me. I asked if I would still be able to get to my destination at the same time and to make sure I would have a window seat. Everything from the moment I said yes was a terrible. They rebooked me twice on two different routes when I was in the air. Said a steward would meet me (never happened) instead I was running to catch flights on different airlines in two different airports. The entire situation was disgusting. The running was with all of my luggage. Because of the rebooking I was in the last row of 75 rows on a plane with an additional connection. Every flight had delays creating more chaos for the next flight. The only helpful airline in the bunch was Delta."

Pros: "Taking off was good"
Cons: "Landing was a little bit stressful. But still ok."

Pros: "Crew friendly, good food"
Cons: "Cramped seating, can't select seat until checkin without paying (only airline we were unable to select seat)"

Cons: "This Air Canada flight was operated by Lufthansa and was cancelled due to the strike. So, this means that I am still in Germany which is not the worst place in the world to be stuck, especially because my parents live here. So a few day longer are not a problem for me, but if it takes a week, it is not good because I am supposed to be at work and I am using up vacation I had planned to spent with my family."

Cons: "No boarding lines. Boarded late. I was not given enough time from my arriving flight. I had to spring the length of the airport and up and down stairs as the elevators had long lines. Maybe it was good it boarded late or I wouldn't have made it."

Cons: "Ticket written on Air Canada but Lufthansa was carrier. Not possible to check-in on line leaving very few choices for seating. Tried to check-in on Sunday for Monday flight -- system errors resulted and phone number provided by system only works M-Sat. My initial leg was on Iberia and they could not check me in for entire flight. Major scramble in Frankfort to resolve issues. Never again!"

Pros: "The crew was especially cheerful and helpful. The food was surprisingly good for airline food. I have always had a good experience on Lufthansa and this trip was no exception."
Cons: "Some of the movie choices were a little dated."

Cons: "Na"

Pros: "crew was very nice engaging. shopping at Munich airport was unexpectedly good."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline. I changed seats with my sister mid flight so I could sleep."

Pros: "SAS and BA can do better"

Pros: "Excellent service, great airplane, and a high level of professionalism on the part of all Lufthansa crew members. I felt pampered."
Cons: "I was in the next to last row in economy class. The person ahead of me put his seat back as far as it would go. that is his right. Behind me were two friends traveling with me. I doubt if their seats reclined (the last row) so I did not attempt to recline my seat. As a result I was a true "sardine". There was so little space between my face and the seat back ahead of me I could not look at the video screen, which was positioned at an angle when the seat was back. I just closed my eyes and let it pass. Economy plus next time? I have long legs."

Pros: "Excellent Flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Still loads of leg room in economy which is great for a tall person like myself."
Cons: "The food, dinner and breakfast from Johannesburg to Frankfurt was not very nice and not the usual good standard."

Cons: "The seat in front of mine was reclined in the already cramped space provided, twice as far back as any other seat I could see. Please look into the recline on that seat for future passengers. The crew hit my seat, repeatedly with their carts and did not remember to offer drinks to us as they pushed it by. The airlines should consider removing that seat as an option to passengers if there is not ample room for the flight crew to maneuver around it. It made for an unpleasant experience overall."

Pros: "The service was excellent! ALL staff, great! Food, very good. Only complaint is too many people, 1 smaller planes would have been better."

Pros: "Entertainment."
Cons: "Staff was extremely sassy and unhelpful when I had been traveling for 40 hours."

Pros: "Very prompt, good food. We encourage trip very much!"
