Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "The crew was unparalleled. Really. Attentive. Friendly."
Cons: "Nothing could have been better beyond the signs at the gate."
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Cons: "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: "Crew were helpful"
Cons: "Luggage didn't make it onto flight, from transfer flight"
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: "Nothing much."
Cons: "I think airplane was small in Doha to Amritsar sector . There are not too many flights"
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Pros: "New Dreamliner"
Cons: "No European movies in English at all, very disappointing for someone who is not into latest Hollywood ( silly) movies and doesn’t want to watch Bollywood or Chinese ones(( The “ dinner” food was barely edible, both from Singapore to Doha and from Copenhagen to Doha."
Pros: "I appreciated the friendly and always service minded staff. The plane was clean and I enjoyed good leg room. I was happy with the menus and the film selection was entertaining and current. All over a great experience and I would not hesitate to choose Qatar again."
Pros: "Excellent service from check in to disembarkation. I was surprised at the amount of leg room, as being a 6+ footer it has always previously been an issue, but not with Qatar."
Cons: "Only downside was the lack of the free traveller pack, eye shade and ear plugs, sleep was denied as I could not block out the sound of the very talkative travellers behind me."
Cons: "They claimed they have free WiFi, but this is not true. Passengers has to pay if they want access to WiFi. Uncomfortable sitting and you cannot adjust it to a comfortable level. Crew keeps demanding sit need to be upright."
Pros: "The treatment"
Cons: "It was too late"
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: "Love the service, love the crew!"
Pros: "Philadelphia-Doha was excellent and noticeably better than Doha-Bangkok. ood, service, condition of aircraft were all better in the PHL-Doha leg. I have done the trip a few times now so it is not a fluke. Odd that the Doha food (and I usually get the local dishes) is very so-so. I usually only take a bite or two. Not appetizing. The Doha-BKK staff was less professional as well. The trays of the main meal were left with the passengers so long, we passengers started to bring our own trays to the galley. The plane out of Doha was very tight so passengers in economy have that sardine experience. The cup holders did not work although they would have been useful."
Cons: "Crew is meek and doesn’t smile or try very hard. Flight was FULL of nasty Russian tourists. Miserable experience"
Pros: "Stewards were great"
Cons: "No complaints for this leg of the journey. Entertainment options were mediocre as all legs of my journey had the identical offerings and i pretty much watched all of it in my round trip almost 48 hours of total on plane time."
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: "Seats should be comfortable, improve your menu, Pakistani dishes should be added, sweat dishes are hot and tasteless"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "Excellent travel with Qatar Airways"
Cons: "Only thing is security was too tight at Doha Airport"
Cons: "Such an uncomfortable flight. Poorly organized, was a total chaos. Will never fly Qatar again!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Pros: "The kit was really helpful for the really long flight. Good service!, food was better than our previous flight"
Cons: "Took a long time to get the trays after meals (at least 30-40mins) , didn't offer smaller snacks such as cookies between meals,"
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "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: "On board crew are excellent."
Cons: "Ground staff requires training specifically on communication related to boarding. Travelers were confused as to what zone is boarding at a given time as there were no announcements. Pathetic boarding process."
Pros: "Upgrade to 1st Class. Very grateful for the experience. Outstanding service. Very professional crew. Awesome recliner seats. What's not to like about premium service?"
Cons: "Too short leg :( This upgrade would have been awesome for the longer leg of the trip (for a much needed decent sleep)."
Pros: "Helpful and frieendly"
Cons: "Counters should have opened earlier so we could have done aome ahopping at dfs"
Pros: "The entertainment options were fantastic! The flight attendants were very cordial and hardworking."
Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."
Pros: "The flight was on time, not full and the crew and the entertainment was excellent. Very happy with the experience of flying on Qatar Airways from Johannesburg to Miami."
Cons: "Everything was well, the food was good not great (even for airplane food) and the only other issue is it seemed like trash from our drinks and food services was picked up for quite a while or until we brought it to the flight attendants ourselves."
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: "Once I made it to my seat, easily slipped back into a meditative trance."
Cons: "Unannounced delays. Waited in a line, then another one. Probably just different security protocol than I'm used to."
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"
Pros: "Excellent care of crew to ensure social distancing is adhered at all times."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"

Cons: "Couldn't decline the chair and cause much neck pain"
Cons: "It took over 45 minutes for my bag to come onto the collection conveyor, this seems excessive."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."
Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"
Cons: "The attendant at the counter gave us 2 very bad seats together but did not indicate no tray table . was no problem because on the plane we switched."
Pros: "There was good service in the flight"
Pros: "Flight tracker should be upgraded, I expect the mileage covered was way off. Also, I don't want to see commercials while I follow the flight. The forward camera was cool."
Cons: "Crew should keep eye on the toilets. The waste basket was backed up."
Pros: "Leg Room. Timing"
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Pros: "Just the screen with full information of flight"
Cons: "I don't the flight because it was connected flight so it was very bad service and not comfort for seating and when I try to parent the online boarding mine is issued my wife cannot issued because there online technical problem"
Pros: "I liked the boarding process. And the food this time wasn't bad."
Cons: "The crews have just been ok. There were maybe 2 that went above and beyond but the others are just ok. There is nothing outstanding about the service."
Pros: "Second legs entertainment system was brilliant."
Cons: "To offer only one meal on a 7 hr flight seemed quite stingy, although the quality was very good."
Pros: "First time flying Emirates. Friendly and attentive staff. Flew on schedule. Comfortable seats. Nice food and clean restrooms."
Pros: "The cabin crew always smiled and were friendly. At no time did it appear that they were just pretending to be enjoying their job. They worked with great effectiveness."
Cons: "The sandwich served with mayonnaise and chicken was at room temperature. It didn't set well with my stomach. The plane landed and then parked so far away from the terminal. It took a half hour to exit the plane, board the non-air conditioned bus, and arrive at the terminal. The shuttle bus was extremely uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "Better plane with much better entertainment system. Decent food. Once I had missed my connecting flight because of the flight delay, they promptly arranged for a hotel to stay at, as there wasnt another flight to NYC for 12 hrs. Otherwise I would have been really pissed."
Cons: "First time I have had mediocre crew on an emirates flight. The guy serving my section was not particularly friendly, had a bit of an attitude problem and spent a little too much time chatting up an attractive female passenger. Again, disorganized boarding process. First time I have experienced such terrible service on emirates."
Pros: "Food was ok. Boarding and check in was good too"
Cons: "The crew from kwt to Dubai was so cheap asking if u get a headset we don't hand out one :) funny but cheap..."
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Cons: "Old plane. Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "There was nothing to complain about."
Pros: "The Airplane was good and the crew was very helpful."
Cons: "The route from Bucharest to Istanbul could be shorter and the way from the airplane to the airport could be through the jetway not through the uncomfortable buses."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The sandwich"
Pros: "It was crew amazing"
Pros: "Food, entertainment system were very good"
Cons: "This was the worst airline I have flown with. I booked my tickets last minute, it was for me and my 4 month old son. I had 3 suitcases a stroller and 2 carryons. I had paid for the suitcases, but because I was traveling alone I went there with my husband and he politely asked if they could please take the carryons on the plane because she can’t carry everything by herself. The manager came out and said that we have to pay. I said I already paid extra for my suitcases please help us because my wife is carrying our son, the diaper bag and 2 carryons. He was rude stating that we have to pay each carryon. We didn’t have the extra money and my wife took everything with her. If that’s how Turkish Airline treats their customers, they shouldn’t be operating. It was the last time I use this airline. No dignity or humanity, it’s all only about the money. And when I took the stroller with my son. They made me package the stroller by myself looking that I had my son on me crying and when I asked for help they said that they can’t help me... unbelievable... they see me with 2 carryons a stroller and a baby and they can’t help me."
Pros: "It was help full"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and pleasent"
Cons: "Flight from Istanbul to Mumbai was not that great. Leg space was not that great. Food overall was pretty same across the 3 meals. Expect more variety which I have seen on other airlines like Emirates and Etihad."
Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"
Cons: "They ran out of the food option I preferred. When I asked if another Food cart might have one, I was told they were completely gone. A few minutes later o heard my preferred meal choice offered to another guest."
Pros: "They give me windows seat. Problem give Aaisle seat to handicap. Old man can’t move nowhere’s ever time I like go bathroom waited someone help him crews members are rude I requested it’s hard. Nobody care my priority 30 min waiting then I use restroom. Disappointed Los Angeles to Istanbul uncomfortable journey"
Pros: "Food and service in business class were splendid."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing!"
Pros: "I like that the FAs gave us all the things needed for a comfortable flight...thanks."
Cons: "Flight from Copanhagen to Istanbul was delayed for an hour...computer malfunction was the reason. I was a little bit stressed because I had a connecting flight to Manila, was afraid i wouldn't make it. And also, no gate assignment yet for Istanbul to Manila. Since it was my first time to travel via Turkish Airline, not familiar with Istanbul airport."
Pros: "Long time n not in time Food is not enough quality n quantity for health"
Cons: "Must change catering n in time , Staff working in the airport is not pro enough"
Cons: "Small seats in the economy class"
Cons: "They cancelled my returning flight WITHOUT me knowing and expecting me to pay for the penalty fee for misisng the first flight even tho I DID not cancel the returning flight which obviously I was gonna take. The staff was RUDE and INSENSITIVE. Qatar was better in overall customer service. Worst customer service from Turkish airline."
Cons: "Options for vegetarians were not really good."
Pros: "First leg (Mia to Instanbul) crew was excellent!"
Cons: "second leg (Istanbul to Johannesburg) crew were rude!!!"
Pros: "All the flight attendants were very nice and helpful. The food was pretty good. The movie selection helped the flight go by quickly."

Pros: "Great service in the airplane plus they offer some amenities like slippers, tooth paste and toothbrush, they offer you wet towels to clean and refresh yourself during he flight. Really good."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines does a fantastic job. I won’t fly any other airline to Greece. For the value and service it is second to none."
Cons: "Good service."
Cons: "We had to spend the night in Istanbul and get only on the next flight the following morning. TK airport (ground) staff that talked to us was antipathetic and it took ages to get any service. Looks like they didn't care we about the delay, nor they were trying to help us. Just kept saying we need to wait."
Pros: "Food's always good and the staff friendly"
Cons: "The sound on the entertainment system is not good...it used to be good but not anymore"
Pros: "Service, timing"
Cons: "Didnt love the food ..."
Pros: "Flight was delayed. Flight time was changed 5 times."
Cons: "Very disorganized the gate checking, staff ne d hospitality training . You ESP not have time for your queries and concerns . They are always in a hurry to finish talkign to you . Poor hygiene. The bathrooms are very dirty and has nomjand soap to wash your hands . Male staff in board come across unpolite. ingelt inwelcomed by the male flight attendant port side at the back.?"
Pros: "Good food, comfortable seat, good timing."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit harried rushing around the cabin. For example, I was given chicken when I asked for pasta."
Pros: "Good entertainment system with lots of options."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably warm throughout the (long!) flight, which made it difficult to get any rest."
Cons: "The crew offered no help or solutions when I was denied af security and had to return to ticketing to check a bag. They refused to check the bag and caused me to miss the flight, and offered to rebook me for over $2000. Shady. Most unhelpful agents. You'd just better hope you don't have an issue, because the customer service is some of the worst I've experienced. Won't fly them again."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good and the convenience kits were nice to have as well."
Cons: "The flight attendants took a very long time to hand out drinks and meals. The worst part of the flight though, was how long it took them to pick up the trays once people finished their meals. Numerous people had to bring their own trays up so that they could leave their seats and use the bathroom. There were also no drinks distributed between meals. The seats were extremely close together and leaned back very far so that space was extremely limited. It was extremely uncomfortable, unlike other Turkish Airlines flights I've taken."
Pros: "We arrived safely and on time"
Cons: "The seat spacing on that flight was some of the tightest I have ever seen - worse than even most of the short-haul (Embraer) flights i have been on - barely manageable for 3.5 hours. Flight attendants were borderline rude and bossy, but they had to be, because the passengers were loud and unruly."
Pros: "pleasant flight attendants"
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"
Cons: "EVerything about this airline."
Pros: "Comfortable seat Good food Great entertainment options USB to charge phone at the seat"
Cons: "Nothing. Excellent experience"
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "The ground crew couldn't speak English! I was part of a group and a friend of mine got wounded doing Ski. We simply couldn't communicate with the ground crew so they can arrange her with a seat that would match her medical condition. On board the plane, the (idiot) guy from the ground crew told us we can either take unfit seats or disembark. I find it very hard to believe I'll choose Turkish again..."
Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Pros: "Complimentary travel kit was a life saver."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Pros: "Amazing service and comfortable environment. The really take care of you"
Cons: "Boarding Process could be a little streamlined. Guess we are used to the regulated process."
Pros: "Great Food, adequate seating, helpful staff, efficient boarding"
Cons: "The airplane was a really warm temperature when we boarded."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "The food was poor. No choice and the same, cut-down beef meal I had several times before. I suggest the "cook" on board be dropped and the meals improved."
Pros: "Staff on plane were friendly and respectful"
Cons: "Landing was rough , boarding gate is isolated from amenities"
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight wasnt delayed, nor were my bags lost."
Cons: "The seat next to me had two kids sitting in it. The seats are only supposed to have one person per seat. So they we also halfway in my seat also."
Pros: "Food was wonderful, technology helped the flight "fly by", and the plane was comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was different in every city we stopped in - mainly due to other countries' airports and regulations. I believe this was not a problem due to the airline, but boarding groups weren't always adhered to."
Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Cons: "Was late taking off"
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment in flight movies, food service was good and the seats were fairly comfortable. I wasn't sure what to expect from the airline, I'd never heard anyone who flew with them before but it was a pretty good experience especially being my first trip to Europe"
Cons: "Took a while to board the plane a lot of standing around it seemed for no reason"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Cons: "Hour late departure and still only loaded 1/3 of the luggage. Communication about the luggage problem was poor"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Pros: "Everything was really good. Crew was helpful and provided excellent customer service. Food provided was good."
Cons: "The only thing that would have been better was cooler air in the cabin. I got very hot on both my flights to and from Frankfurt."
Cons: "The in-flight snack - choice of two disappointing sandwiches."
Pros: "Nice smooth and organized flight"
Cons: "Never revived my checking email The cabin was very cold. I had to wear a jacket for the whole flight. With two blankets"
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Pros: "It was very smooth, the connection was great, boarding went easy, service was nice."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online and because I booked pretty late, didn't get the seat choice I wanted. I purchased the flight via the Lufthansa site, but then on check-in, I found out that the first segment was SAS, so neither the Lufthansa site nor the SAS site let me check in online."
Pros: "Flight crew and food was wonderful."
Cons: "There was not enough room for all the people’s cabin size luggage. They allowed people to get on board with big coats once they’re in the plain they take off the coats and place them up. Those coats take the same space as a small suitcase. I asked the fly attendants for assistance and they didn’t even pretend to care about the situation. I had to put my luggage under the seat for the entire flight, which ended up reducing the very reduced legroom. What this airline is trying to do is; to charge passengers twice for cabin size luggage. This has been my worst experiences with airlines. Lufthansa is definitely an airline to avoid."
Pros: "Same as above same as a bove"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "We were put on standby. We expected our names to be called for seat assignments but we didn’t expect we could just swipe our boarding pass and our seat assignment would show. It’s a nice feature but I didn’t like that it wasn’t clearly explained to us."
Cons: "Everything, lost luggage and missed flights because of flights not making their time."
Pros: "Fantastic staff excellent aircraft"
Cons: "5 hour lay over in Frankfurt. Sandwiches are all the same 2 choices on all aircraft"
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 service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Cons: "Departure was delayed causing me to miss my connection from Frankfurt to San Francisco."
Cons: "Luggage lost"
Pros: "Luthansa flight was very good. On time, and best quality"
Cons: "The waiting time"
Pros: "All was good."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "Great service!"
Cons: "Breakfast and movie selection could have been better"
Cons: "Services on the planes were not fantastic"
Pros: "I very much enjoyed my flight from LA to Munich. The flight crew were awesome and the airplane was impeccably clean and quiet. The flight was so nice I consider it as part of the vacation! I highly recommend flying Luftansa :-)"
Pros: "The seats and space was ok. Exit from the plane was directly opposite the passport machines and the exit."
Cons: "The flight was very late leaving meaning I arrived in London over an hour late! With knock on problems!"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "They ran out of food- I didn’t have dinner on that flight. We were almost 2 hours late to Dubai. I was irritated to say the least."
Pros: "Great service and food."
Cons: "after the fact, improperly disclosed baggage charge excessive and no opportunity to pay on line and avoid the charge at the airport."
Pros: "Pleasant efficient crew and although we had a late departure the pilot made up the time and we did not miss our connection"
Pros: "The app made it so easy. It is like your personal assistant with you telling you about your trip. No delays no major issues. I also liked the seats."
Cons: "Check in very confusing, switched gates on me but I didn’t get the text until later, after take off. No announcement over the PA system in the airport. If my son, who was picking me up, hadn’t been tracking my flight, I would have missed it."
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "Many things. Starting from the online/mobile check in process via United airlines. I was not given any other option but to check in through the United website. On that website I was not allowed to check in for my Lufthansa flights and i was stuck with seats I did not want in my 2 long intercontinental flights. This has happened before. Lufthansa has no option to check in online if my first flight leg is united. This is a very big drawback and also the reason I would not prefer to fly Lufthansa again. United is bringing the quality down."
Pros: "The staff was helpful and courteous"
Pros: "the crew was courteous, attentive, accommodating."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "crew very helpful and accommodating. served two meals and complimentary beverages including beer, wine, spirits"
Cons: "movie selection limited"
Pros: "A very nice flight overall. Plane left 40 minutes late to wait for other connecting flights but caused me to miss my connection later that day. Was compensated with hotel room and dinner."
Cons: "Amount of time waiting for crew to address my call button request. Almost 20 minutes waiting for flight attendant to respond."
Cons: "The cabin got a little hot during the night and made it hard to be comfortable. Also, the seats lean pretty far back so I had little room in front of me when the person sitting in front of me leaned their seat all the way back."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "There was at least 4 hours' delay in getting to St. Petersburg, due to the storm, and there was hardly any food or water served while waiting."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "free wine."
Cons: "Planes are old and cramped. Our plane gave us the "personal entertainment option" which meant you had to use your own device since they are too cheap to upgrade the planes. However, this international flight only had american plugs so anyone without an adapter was SOL. I tried to watch the large screen at the front of my section but they showed the movie Lion that is in Hindi and therefore had subtitles and I couldn't read the words from 12 rows back. The boarded process is like a cattle call. DO NOT FLY UNITED!!! I thought I was flying Lufthansa but it was a bait and switch situation."
Pros: "Brand new plane, pleasant attentive staff. Delayed leaving but most of time made up. Since plane was new everything was clean and worked well *including audio, good movie selection too."
Pros: "Made our connection, plenty of room on plane."
Cons: "Plane was late out of Budapest. Lounge at Budapest opened very late. No entertainment options."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled due to pilot strike."
Pros: "Munich airport is convenient and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "This was an SAA plane, not Lufthansa. I have only had excellent service on Lufthansa. This flight again did not have a functioning entertainment system. I asked for this to be addressed and the SAA crew ignored the request and in the morning looked surprised to find out that several of the TV monitors had not worked at anytime on the flight. Not impressed."
Pros: "The efficiency and professionalism was impressive."
Cons: "The temperature on the flight was uncomfortanly warm. the Airbus planes do not have individual air jets at each seat which is a desirable feature. Therefore, the environment felt stuffy. It would also have been nice to have refills on coffe and hot tea, however, no one checked back with us after round one. The bathroom floor should also have been cleaned more frequently."
Pros: "Efficiency...I sat three rows behind the crying babies...but with ear phones...had a pleasant flight"
Cons: "Once again - the connecting flights through Frankfurt are difficult because of the size of the airport and the location of the gates. Make certain there is enough time between flights to get to new gate. Use extra time to purchase some of the excellent food items"
Pros: "The upgrade to business class"
Cons: "Not Applicable"
"Check in of luggage the day before"
Pros: "Quick Trip, Friendly Staff"
Cons: "Spacing of seating due to covid."
Pros: "Boarding a smooth flight"

Pros: "Seat ok typical. Non busy flight lots of room"
Cons: "Food was poor"
Pros: "On time, best connection for me, earning miles on my program. I booked based on time and cost, didn't even pay attention to what airline."
Cons: "No food, plane felt pretty old and not so clean. Smaller seats than the other flights I had with Lufthansa. Otherwise, it was fine. I had a pretty bad earache on that particular flight, so I liked it less than I might have otherwise. Something didn't feel right, pressure wrong or something."
Cons: "Missed the flight from Houston to Fankfurt and the airline canceled the whole round trip. I did not know I had to call the airline to let them know not the cancel my trip. I would've appreciated a notice of that."
Pros: "On time, nice breakfast"
Cons: "Not enough leg room, same as everyone"
Pros: "Fast flight , friendly staff , ok food"
Cons: "I couldn’t push my seat back and because of that I was awake the whole flight (night flight)"
Cons: "We are late only 25 min (50% of flight - 50 min)"
Pros: "Polite crew. The food was much better that on any airline these days. The boarding process was organized fine."
Cons: "As on any airline these days the leg space in economy class is very limited. The movie selection was OK but not great."
Pros: "I liked the crew on the flight."
Cons: "I was frustrated with the staff at the desk in the airport, as we boarded 20miutes late and they did not feel it necessary to give any comment on the situation. Everyone was puzzled as to why we were not boarding, or if there was a problem. Even the screens did not show any change."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding process, no clear communication with passengers, delays in boarding not explained, people sent away or told off, huge attitude and chip on the shoulder. In the U.S., we are customers that paid for a service and are asking for details on that service. In Europe, we are annoyances that depend on staff at the boarding gates to get on the plane, so power tripping and general disdain to customers beings confused are part of the game. I will try never to fly Austrian Airlines again. Absolutely unacceptable behavior toward families, mothers with children, senior citizens. I can almost see the smirks and annoyed and superior attitude of staff at the boarding gate when they had to deal with more passengers asking why boarding hasn't started half an hour ago when we were announced it would. No answers, just show me the passport and boarding pass, ok, please go back, we'll let you know, then ignore questions."
Cons: "Not enough room in the seat"
Pros: "Not much"

Pros: "I will never travel with Austrian airlines again"
Cons: "My flight was cancel,then they transfer me to swees airlines they checked me in they took my luggage and then they told me I can't travel coz I can't make 2 stops inside the Europe. I have to wait 1 hour and 30 minutes to fine my bags . I went back and forth from terminal 1 and 4 many times.The changed my flight to turkey airlines and I wait 9 more hours at airport to check in again. Terrible experience ☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️"
Pros: "Professional and friendly staff"
Cons: "Outdated interior, media interface"
Pros: "Snacks in board included in the price. Super nice crew team. Unlike British airways where prices are higher, on longer flights there is no free refreshments and crew staff were unpleasant."

Pros: "Efficient crew, good meals,on time arrival."
Cons: "Took a while to board and could use more updated films-minor details."
Pros: "Compared to most American crews the Aus crew was helpful and outstanding."

Pros: "Flight services were good. Staff friendly. food was good"
Cons: "boarding at Tel Aviv was terrible. Specifically a staff member name Michelle was unprofessional and did not care much about passengers who waited for hours at the Group line because there was no indication that it is a group line. No one from the airliner bothered to explain or advise the passengers who were waiting and after more tan hour waiting when they eventually got to the head of the line they were told to go and stand in other lines. This was insane Long waiting times confusion Flight was late hence almost missed connection"
Pros: "Easy online check-in and boarding pass access also linked to wallet."
Cons: "I was not aware of additional luggage charges when I booked my ticket. It would be helpful to have a warning about that and the fact that if you do not prepay online you are charged double. I also was not aware of the type of a ticket I booked, e.g. Economy light and what it meant for luggage fees."
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "Choice of movies Pillow plus blanket Snack-1/2 sandwich plus caramel mousse"
Cons: "I wasn't able to check in online therefor i got terrible seat. The guy next to me was very tall and big and he was stuck on me due to not enough space. I was extremly uncomfortable because he was rude when i asked him to let me out. I asked if i can change seats but the plane was full. I didn't get any sleep either. Extremly tiring and turbulent 10 hour flight."
Pros: "We have children and the crew was very helpful in making it an easy boarding process for all of us."
Cons: "Initially we were jammed into a gate area with all guests and it was absolutely horrible and not safe, especially with our kids."
Cons: "Sarted 90 minutes late because there was no crew available for this flight. In the cabin we later learned that they had to keep their legal rest times. The issue I have, why was there no information as soon as this issue became clear ... lets say the evening before the flight?Why make everyone arrive at 5am at an airport if you know 12 hours earlier there will be a 90 minute delay?"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and the crew was nice and efficient. My legs did not cramp up on the long flight. Good job."
Cons: "My experience at Vienna airport was HORRIBLE. No jet bridge -- stairs to walk onto the tarmac. Board a crowded bus to get to the terminal. The terminal was a nightmare...up the stairs, down the stairs, walking forever like a mouse in a maze. Very inefficient and crowded conditions at the gate for boarding. Not enough information as to what's happening. I felt like a sardine in a can! The personnel at the gate were not at all friendly or forthcoming with information."
