Check-in should be faster. We waited for almost 1hr to complete check-in
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Yes comfortable flight"
Cons: "Toilets to be checked for cleanliness more frequently."
Pros: "Excellent crew. Got on just in time. Last one on the flight but they were very understanding. Loved the airbus A380."
Cons: "It was great but food could have been better. Process to get onto the flight at DXB was much longer and complicated than it needed to be. Huge airport and big distance between connecting flights."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule, departure and arrival."
Cons: "The seats were very narrow."
Cons: "Bigger entertainment screens compared to previous Emirates flight from Manchester"
Cons: "Flight lest 2 hours late. Didn’t have my choice of meal. Cabin crew very inattentive. Worst flight ever with Emirates in business class"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I wished I was in business class..."
Pros: "Great service and attitudes by staff."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "South African airlines allowed me to reserve a seat. But Emirates didn't have it in the system when I checked in."
Cons: "Because my husband and I couldn't complete the online check in, we ended up sitting on different ends of the plane."
Pros: "I love everything about Emirates."
Pros: "Nice flight sttendents"
Cons: "Seats too small"
Pros: "Efficient and good actually good for airline food"
Cons: "Electronic equipment a bit out dated and below standard"
Pros: "Footrest would make the flight just perfect."
Cons: "No footrest. Makes it a little uncomfortable for short people."
Pros: "I love everything and I will flight with them again . A very positive experience."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."
Pros: "Only the salmon meal. I had a fish meal that was so dry it was impossible to eat"
Cons: "The bland food. Tell the chef to be more creative with cholestral free meals."
Cons: "Poor service, host lied when queried on arrival documentation to avoid doing anything. Second person we asked was helpful and answered immediately. Plane was two hours late with no explanation or communication. I did not expect such a poor level of service and it my worst experience with emerits."
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,"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Crew was not so great"
Cons: "I understand that the cabin crew’s job focus is not to serve drinks and food to passengers. However, I would’ve expected well-mannered employees from Emirates. I was on an aisle seat, a steward bumped on my arm quite roughly and he merely continued walking. Not even a word was said."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, even in economy class. Very quiet engine noise. Extensive in-flight entertainment. Attentive crew."
Cons: "Boarding experience was cumbersome and overly complicated. After going through the whole security screening process to enter the departures area (I boarded in Singapore), the whole security process is performed again to get to the gate. Why do I and my carry-on luggage need to be checked twice? Once at the gate, all passengers are herded like sheep into an area that has insufficient seats for the number of passengers, so many are left to stand or sit on the floor. If the airline wants to use a plane that carries 500+ passengers, then use a gate that can accommodate that number."
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: "The flight attendants were fine—not outstanding, but fine. But the representatives, both on the phone and behind the desk, are excellent—willing to go the extra mile to help out their customers."
Cons: "The seats in economy and the flight, in general, are on par with the average airline—nothing special. Also, unless you're into Bollywood movies, the entertainment selection is sparse compared to other international flights. And the touch screen is in need of re-calibration."
Cons: "The connection in Dubai was horrible. The 30 minute bus ride is so ridiculous. It's very difficult to even find the Business Class Lounge. No greeters. No signage. Terrible service. Even pajamas are not provided in Business Class --- unlike on Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Excellent service in flight and nice food"
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?"
Pros: "the movies"
Cons: "it was a delay on the way to dubai one hour and on the way back to kuwait 45 min"
Cons: "Noisy kids and parents along 14 hours of flight. When arrived at Dubai, we had a long ride of a bus, walking, and transited by train - overall 35 minutes."
Pros: "Service is fantastic and all the amenities. They pretty much think of everything. The warm towels at the end of the flight, the travel bag for the long international trips were perfect. The staff is very welcoming and helpful and we were in economy so I can only imagine what it must be like in First Class! Also the free entertainment is phenomenal- wide range of choice. We also enjoyed the outside cameras that help you see views from the outside. Pretty cool!"
Cons: "Little more leg room. When the chair in front of younreclines ot gets a little tight."
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: "The in-flight entertainment options were spectacular and the availability of the crew was first-rate."
Cons: "The late arrival from Bahrain (0130) required a 40 minute bus ride to the terminal, which reflects poorly on the reputation of Emirates and the Dubai airport in general. It felt very poorly organized and shoddily run."
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: "Spacious, great service, amazing entertainment selection. Food on the return leg from Dubai to Seattle was bland and not tasty. Uninspired. But the leg to Dubai from Seattle is great food. Very tasty"
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: "Compare Air Portugal who flew this part to Emirates is like comparing chalk and cheese. Air Portugal need to up their game."
Cons: "Cramped, very poor boarding. TAP should reduce the recline of the seats to give more comfort for those behind. More and more airlines are reducing the recline to save annoyance to others."
Pros: "The attendants were great at keeping the cabin clean and were very goo with the kids. Loads of activities and unexpected surprises that really pleased my kids."
Cons: "More regular offerings of drinks."
Pros: "Love it and I had a middle seat !!!!"
Cons: "The food was good v and excellent service and entertainment"
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: "Flight lisbon/Dubai 8 hours delay,slepping one night in Dubai and after 15 of my arrival in Durban no luggage."
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."
Pros: "My ankle was fractured and the crew (both at the desk and in the plane were very supportive. My experience was better in India (as Delhi airport) than in Dubai and Boston."
Pros: "I was able to receive a vegan meal, though I didn't make an early request. The attendants were very kind and graceful. Thanks for the newspaper."
Cons: "Reliance on electronic entertainment"
Our flight from Zürich to Los Angeles was canceled on the day we were supposed to leave. We found out only when we were at the check-in at the airport in Rome. So we could never fly home and now we had to be rescheduled to 22 July. By Lufthansa. And we never heard back from chat deal or you a KAYAK we tried to contact you over and over and now we’re incurring extra expenses to spend three more days in Rome. This is not acceptable. We would like someone to get in touch with us and I can guarantee you that if we don’t find out support from your in any way in regards to this situation we will never use your services again.
It was excellent. Great airline. Very attentive staff. Seats are a little tight, but it is the world we live in now. Unless you get lucky and get the bulk head seats or are wealthy enough for first class it is cramped. Overall an excellent experience.
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
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and attentive. Best in flight service I have received in a long time."
Cons: "The plane doesn't have usb ports to charge the phones, and as there are no screens or anything else, make sure you bring your battery pack."
Cons: "Flight was 90 minutes late."
Cons: "The TVs in economy class weren’t working and it was an 8 hour flight so it would have been nice to have some entertainment during that time"
Pros: "Crew was great, seating comfortable."
Cons: "2 hour delay and 3 crying babies on a red eye."
Cons: "This flight often arrives late so it is difficult to get to your hotel"
Cons: "The HVAC system was apparently defective and passengers in the mid-section of the plane, myself included, were bundled up in winter jackets and blankets."
Pros: "The flight waited for us as transit after delay of the firs flight from Munich"
Cons: "1. the food was a disaster. 2. The noise on the flight from a group of passengers was terrible, no way to sleep or rest. 3. The staff did not try to calm the people the steward laugh me when I complained.."
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."
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "The boarding process need improvement. The sits are very tight."
Pros: "The crew were great and boarding went very smoothly."
Cons: "After such a smooth boarding we found we had to sit on the tarmac for an hour because of congestion at Zurich."
Pros: "On time, friendly and incredibly efficient. Runs just like trains, just at a higher elevation!"
Cons: "For the home of Emmentaler I expected a bit more taste from the cheese sandwich."
Pros: "Crew very courteous as usual"
Cons: "Lately all Swiss flights I have taken are late. This last one was 1 hour late. No more sandwich is offered, or even chips or peanuts. The only drink available for free was a glass of water! Not even a small bottle!! Bye bye Swiss service!"
Pros: "Ground Staff (your frontline) were welcoming The seats are most comfortable, the cabin immaculately clean, the Staff polite, helpful and efficient. The flight was smooth including takeoff and Landing Thank You All"
Cons: "Have no complaints."
Cons: "2 hours delay from jfk miss flight from Zürich to krakow wait 7hours next flight get in krakow in11clock baggage missing I’m not happy"
Pros: "The food wasn’t bad"
Cons: "Business seats suck"
Pros: "Professionalism of the crew"
Cons: "First there was a mechanical with plane 1. They changed our gate. Then plane 2 was too small and the flight was overbooked by 40. Then the coffee machine was leaking. Then the crew passed their legal time and had to be replaced. Bottom line almost 3 h delay after 6h in ZRH coming from Mumbai"
Pros: "Staff and flight was really great. Everything went smoothly and on schedule. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The seating was almost unbearable. So small and cramped. Arm rest didn’t go all the way up so very hard to cuddle with my seat mate (my daughter). I couldn’t even put my arms by my side without pushing my seat neighbors off. Seat in front of me was in my lap. Hard to get out of seat to use restroom. Way to tight. Long flight from Boston to Zurich was so hard to bear. I understand making money...but this is ridiculous!!"
Pros: "100% the best flight experience I've ever had flying. Wish I flew to Europe more so I could fly with Swiss more often. Thanks!"
Pros: "Small screens. Hard to use"
Cons: "Mackenzie Gray/ My flight was cancelled due to bad weather conditions unfortunately. I'm upset that I never received my initinerary for my substitute flight! I tried online and calling the # that was provided no results. I managed to get thru to someone and they told me they would send the info to my email but they never did."
Pros: "Air hostesses were very courteous, friendly and the cabin was clean and comfortable. My flight from jfk to Geneva (then Zurich) was cancelled due to weather in Geneva (Swiss 23) so I got upgraded to a delta flight to Brussels then to Zurich Comfort+ !!! Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight from Zurich to Johannesburg: Swiss 288 (airbus a340-300) Sat in the last row of the Swiss air flight, economy, which was okay but our whole row video enternatinment system didn’t work. You’d pick a movie and it wouldn’t play. The games, camera and flight status animation all worked but not the movies. Air hostess tried resetting , still nothing. But it was a great opportunity to have a lovely conversation with my new German Friend Barbara and read my book! More lactose intolerant alternatives for breakfast which had much (cheese, yogurt, croissant) Other than those two , excellent flight. Thank you Swiss!"
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: "Flew Business class to Zurich. Great service, completely flat fold down seat so sleeping is EASY Great price."
Cons: "Transfer in Zurich airport security. We were transit but it diodn't matter because we took a 3 min train to another terminal and had to go through security again. No bank in Terminal B to change money ! In Switzerland !!!!!"
Pros: "Courteous, welcoming crew. All good"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Was sent through two redeem security screenings. In Zürich. I doubt this was the airline's fault but it had been a very early morning and it was challenging to remain patient."
Cons: "Very late gate change during boarding process resulting in untimely departure."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Super slow boarding. Long lines at check in"
Cons: "My seat did not recline and my tv did not work"
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Pros: "See below"
Cons: "We got to Rome airport 4 hours before to not miss flight! They booked us with 45 min to connect in Zurich. Then flight from Rome kept getting delayed with no explanations. We got to Zurich with 30 minutes to go. We literally ran to get to gate E. We got no help from Swiss employees and got to our gate with 10 min before flight. They said gate was closed. Went to transfer desk, next flight was next day at 1 pm. Missed very important meeting at work that I had planned around for months. Very upset and disappointed. Felt they could have helped us a lot more and got us on our flight."
Pros: "The punctuality."
Cons: "The food was not up to the mark."
Cons: "At the Budapest airport the attendants were not willing to accommodate to check in my second luggage without a fee, despite the fact that I have a Miles & More card. On the way from NY to Budapest I checked in two luggages prior to arriving to the airport with out any fee. I would like Swiss air to issue a refund. I have my receipt for the excess luggage fee. Thank you, Eva Baud"
Pros: "Staff was polite. Offering water once in a while was nice. Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The promotional video for Swiss Air was way too long. Should have a way to bypass it. I understand being forced to watch the safety video but the promotional video is annoying."
Pros: "+ Crew, professional and polite."
Cons: "- food unevenly cooked - No entertainment - Small toilet"
Pros: "All was good except the snack - it was ok"
Cons: "n/a - quick flight"
Pros: "Crew handled it well"
Cons: "Seat was terrible g43 have no room for your leg. Seats are to small. Huge man next to me was sitting on 1.5 seat...."
Pros: "Great customer service."
Cons: "Breakfast was a strawberry yogurt, orange juice and a croissant. Sugar free options ie. Eggs, rye or whole grain bread are a few examples of sugar free breakfast items that could be provided."
Pros: "my wife needed a wheelchair, so we were whisked between terminals. but if we had had to negotiate that long distance by ourselves we would probably have missed the connection because there was only an hour layover and the distance between gates was great"
Pros: "The food,crew and flight were flawless. Our flight scheduling had us connecting within a thirty minute period in zurich and we had to run to catch the flight. Probably would have missed the connection if our 26 year old son didn't run ahead. Too much drama and no one from swiss air to help. Suggest more time for transfer in the future or someone to guide passengers. We were nit the only ones. However, we did make it as did the others ( luggage too!)so kudos to swiss for waiting"
Cons: "Didn't find anything."
Pros: "General good service, food was good"
Cons: "Airplane wasn't clean, we had hair on the headrest cover and asked one of the crew members for new headrest cover but was ignored."
You at KAYAK should know this flight NEVER took off. And yet you are asking for the survey?
It was just before we boarded the aircraft that we had to literally go thru another security check, we were body checked, all our carry on luggages inspected again and swabbed down. The staff were very rough and not courteous, we were treated like scum. The business class experience for travellers should be better, we were then lined up with Economy class passengers. Turkish Airlines Ground Staff are extremely rude and condescending, muttering under their breath, laughing and being very disrespectful. This was very demeaning.
We bought seat 155$ but in reality it wasn't .no seat ,no refund
Cons: "Canceled flight without warning. Terrible crew coordination to help with the issue. Not flying Turkish again."
Cons: "No delays would be good"
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Cons: "the boarding was delayed and i missed my connection flight and have to stay 8 hours for another flight."
Cons: "Delay in Turkey- made trip long - I understand safety first - but it was a couple hours ."
Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Pros: "Great selection of movies, excellent food, friendly service."
Cons: "Boarding required a lot of waiting in lines only to be moved to another area where we had to wait again. There was very little leg room in between seats."
Pros: "Crew was very kind"
Cons: "Food was terrible. Far from what usually TK is expected to offer on an short international flight"
Pros: "Hot,moist washcloths & overnight travel kits (slippers, toothbrush & paste, sleep mask, ear plugs) , good food, flowers in bathroom - first class touches in economy !"
Pros: "Nothing is changing, they need to make some adjustments"
Pros: "New airplane good service good flight attendant depart on time"
Pros: "Excellent service, food, and entertainment options!"
Cons: "At gate sign advertised their lie flat beds in business.. we were on business. No lie flat beds!"
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Pros: "Timeliness. Orderly boarding"
Cons: "Entertainment. Remote didn't work. Touch screen was painful to use."
Pros: "Large screens, reusable dishes + silverware"
Cons: "Plane was old, felt more squished and the seats did not decline. Also very note."
Pros: "Super staff"
Cons: "Bad WiFi connection"
Cons: "The flight to Lviv was cancelled after 3 hours delay. All happens in life. But the only option Turkish airlines were offering is to fly the next day. I was flying to the funeral and this was not working for me (especially this was their second flight to Lviv cancelled - 2 in a row). The transfer desk didn't inform that there were two other flights going the same day of other airlines. When i approached to help me to go with a different airline the personal was very rude saying they will not help transferring the luggage and that they can't unload the luggage sooner than 3 hours after you go out of the security and passport control. When i asked to book to a different destination in Ukraine. It took 50 min at the desk to do it. Simply because 4 people at the desk were laughing and joking and nobody was concerned about the queue of over 40 people staying. After 30 min it turned out they've lost my boarding pass and it took 15 min to find it as one of the transfer guys managers simply took it to a different room... At the end when they found it it took only 5 min to do the work. I would appreciate more information from the desk about available flights and more support to manage the situation. I'm happy that people at the transfer desk are so joyful and happy it obviously helps to deal with the stressed passengers whose flight was cancel."
Pros: "I was so impressed by every staff of Turkish Airlines.. I was very young when TWA. Was an elite airlines, with the flight attendants dress perfect.. it made me feel like I was flying first class...with this being my first time using Turkish airlines I actually will use them over the American Airlines; just because the way I was treated and how quickly someone was willing to assist anyone.... I say you are the best!"
Pros: "Crew is super nice and helpful. Aircraft is pleasant"
Cons: "Food is okay but the portions are tiny."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Food, as always on THY, was tasty."
Pros: "Comfy seats, bit more leg room than other airlines. It arrived earlier!"
Pros: "No delays Courtesy of crew Very pleasant fly"
Pros: "The seats in economy were very comfortable, food was excellent, crew was friendly and accommodating, entertainment selection was excellent, and I really appreciated the small care packages handed out (with lip balm, slippers, toothbrush/paste, socks, and eye cover)."
Cons: "About 8 hours into the flight the restrooms became very, VERY unclean--urine on the floors, sinks clogged, smelled terrible. More restroom maintenance was needed throughout this long flight. I thought this airline was the nicest I have been on save this one issue. It would be great if Turkish Airlines could resolve it in the future! Additionally the boarding process in Istanbul was like herding cattle. People weren't seated according to boarding group and it was absolute mayhem--no single file line, people shoving past one another to get seated first on the same plane."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and the food is amazing"
Cons: "After the second hour the temperature inside the aircraft was very warm started to sweat"
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
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: "It is very hard to separate the hassle of air travel from the airlines so the size of your seat and the many security checks that infuence our opinion are beyond their power. The food, service, little overnight packet and staff were excellent."
Cons: "The general hassle of air travel. Small seats, little space and the herding thru security and long lines. You really have to be slim and trim to fit in the seats and walk the long distances from one gate to another. Great motivation for getting in shape and loosing weight."
Cons: "The international transfer line in Istanbul was an absolute nightmare. I had to jump to the front of the line or I would have missed my connection despite having a 90 minute window of time to make it through. It seems this airport lacks the capacity needed to get people through efficiently based on the numbers of travelers using it."
Pros: "El servicio del personal a bordo fue muy bueno. La comida me pareció de buen sabor. El boarding se puede hacer desde el lounge."
Cons: "El chreck in en el aeropuerto de IAD no me gustó. Abre a las 7:10 para el vuelo de las 11."
Pros: "I would love to fly with them again"
Cons: "Staff is mean, impolite, and inefficient."
Pros: "The food was really good but very little"
Cons: "Unfortunately I asked three ( 3 ) time for plankitte during the flight but with No response from (2 )differant"
Pros: "Good attitude of aircrew"
Cons: "There was heavy rain in Instanbul and our luggage was not covered. Half my clothing was soaked when I received it in Erbil. No rain in Erbil or Frankfurt, so I know who is to blame. Turkish Airlines in Instanbul. No way are they the best in Eurpoe..."
Cons: "Update your multimedia for entertainment"
Pros: "Great crew, pleasant fligt"
Pros: "The crew, as usual on Turkish airlines, was wonderful. Excellent service and patience.Warmly recommend Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Cons: "My luggage did not come with the flight. Too short a time between Ankara-Istanbul flight and Istanbul-Accra flight. I missed the flight because of delays at Passport Control and had to fly the next day."
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "I love the comfort and hospitality offered by the Turkish"
Pros: "Great service, amazing food. A lesson to be learned by the American carriers'"
Pros: "Good tasting food"
Cons: "Slow crew with no flexibility at all. They did not respond to any "custom" request.(e.g. milch for the kids.)"
Pros: "Movies crew"
Cons: "All was good"
My baggage was lost several days
Our trip was Lisbon-Frankfurt- Bangalore. When we reached Lisbon Check in there was not anybody at the Lufthansa counter. There was one and a half-hour delay before the aircraft left Frankfurt. The less said about the food the better. I had an Eco Saver ticket. Does it mean that beggars cannot be choosers' type of attitude to passengers is the order of the day?
The flight was delayed and we were stranded at Dulles airport for 2 days (48 hours) as United Airlines cancelled the flights!
No wifi or entertainment on board at all.
The flight was on a very small plane for a transatlantic flight. It was more suitable for a mid-distance domestic flight. The plane was also quite old and its entertainment systems repeatedly froze and shut down. Finally, the airline charged for most food and drinks--on an international flight. I will avoid Lufthansa and its partner, United, in the future. Also, the airports are a disastrous mess, with long lines and huge numbers of flights delayed (although this is beyond the airline's control). Both my flights were delayed substantially.
My flight was cancelled and Air cañada said they didn’t even have that flight number or my name in their computer. Does this mean Kayak somehow messed up with the letters/ number sequence? No one would help me at the airport. Lufthansa said it was Air cañadas fault and I had gotten two messages from Kayak, one was at 6 am(I had already called a ride so I was going an hour earlier ) then after 2 hours at airport I get my message from Kayak(Ricky) saying sorry your flight is cancelled? Then, like I say, no one would even put me on standby for another flight as my numbers you gave me did not match. Can you please get me on a flight home? No later than Monday, please? I am out of money
On my way from Denver to Munich the flight was delayed. The pilot himself said he couldn't explain the reason for the 1 hour delay. The delay resulted in almost everyone on the flight missing their connections, including me and my husband. No effort was made to help passengers with tight connections to get off the plane and to their gates faster. After an international flight, the last thing you want is an 8-hour layover where you've no choice but to remain awake and exhausted for an unhealthy amount of time. As a pitiful expression of apology, Lufthansa gave us a 10 euro voucher to use in the Munich airport--not even enough for a full, hot meal. Not to mention that checking in for both my flight to and from my destination city was very stressful because of an abundance of travelers and a clear understaffing on the airline's side. Even though I came two hours early to check in for my return flight, I only had ten minutes at the gate before it was boarded. The whole experience was rushed and stressful and inefficient. The worst part, though, was that one of my checked bags was returned to me with my clothes sticking out of it and some speciality cheese I bought entirely missing. I have also found it really difficult to get in touch with the Lufthansa customer service. They claim in emails with my flight information that I especially requested that my reservation number be withheld from me (I never requested this). The loss of this number has made it nearly impossible for me to register complaints without calling the airline and wasting hours of time. I would greatly reconsider ever booking with this airline again.
OMG! The 5/21/2022 flight was canceled after we were on board over 3 hours! NO AIR CANADA rep to help! No Air Canada gate to check in with. It was total chaos at the Lisbon airport. Trying to get out today, 5/22/2022, the Air Canada agent said we. needed a new Covid test, only to find out AFTER we paid 20EU, that it was NOT needed. They were not educated on the rules, even though they knew they were checking in people from the canceled flight. Totally UNACCEPTABLE! I will never fly Air Canada again, operated. Y Lufthansa. I plan to post on Facebook and Twitter how bad this was.
The lady Lo was worried about which useless mask are children were wearing. We wore these cloth masks on one lufthansa flight and through two airports with zero trouble for the scientifically useless masks we wear for show conformity to power hungry people , dhe demanded we change to the so called medical masks. really, put her on a domestic flight or something.
I expected a better flight. The food was very poor. The aircraft was too warm
Pros: "In general, everything was ok aboard the plane."
Cons: "The plane was supposed to leave Lisbon at 5:00 a.m. but because of computer problem it left at 5:50, a delay that caused everyone to scramble to get to their connecting flight or even miss it."
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Cons: "Better entertainment"
Pros: "The seat was good, and the crew was great."
Cons: "Boarding at the gate, and not having to take the bus."
Pros: "Literally one of the worst check in experiences I have ever had traveling"
Cons: "The person checking me in could have given me a few minutes to help me understand the flight delay"
Cons: "Traveled business class and the big perk was nobody in the middle seat. My seat was same size and uncomfortable as economy seats. The seating chart when I chose seats showed only 2 seats on each side. However there were 3 regular seats on each side, just like economy. Not a nice surprise."
Pros: "the flight got me where I needed to go"
Cons: "no boarding zones. boarding was a free for all."
Pros: "Nice to have breakfast on board"
Cons: "Arrival was a little tardy"
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Pros: "the service with lufthansa is great. I always enjoy my flight with lufthansa"
Pros: "The whole trip went smoothly. The price was right. There was a very bad storm in Charlotte before departure. Lufthansa made a delay, and I was very happy about that decision. They were very informative about connections, and emailed important information. Friendly, competent staff!"
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: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("
Pros: "Flight attendants are fluent in many languages, courteous, and helpful. Comfortable seats even in economy."
Cons: "Boarding at the gate is somewhat disorganized compared to boarding in the US."

Pros: "Complementary Drinks. Beautiful Flight Attendants."
Pros: "great flight attendants - very friendly and attentive"
Cons: "The landing was extremely turbulent - an announcement from the pilot would have been nice."
Pros: "The on board crew worked hard to make up for the 2 hour delay. I was happy to be fed in the right hour flight, but the food was not very good. I did not download the app for inflight entertainment so I can't rate it."
Cons: "The plane departure was delayed and the passengers were left wondering about the flight. There was no announcement to explain until an hour after the departure time. All monitors showed original departure."
Pros: "I think this airline is a very good airline, but this flight was shorter so it didn't have all of the perks of the longer ones that it usually has."
Cons: "In Lisbon we had to be bused out to the airplane to board, so it was a long process."
Cons: "There were no options for food, I was just told that there was only pasta left while the passenger next to me ate chicken. This was totally unacceptable. I only hope that this was my last trip with Lufthansa."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
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."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "The friendly crew were good."
Cons: "Insufficient legroom, limited drink options and dirty toilets. The flight was booked completely and hence the toilets were always occupied and unclean."
Cons: "Boarding was poor - we were put on standby, the gate changed, we were bussed out to the tarmac, and the plane left very late."
Pros: "Short flight Ease of checking in Meal provided"
Cons: "Time of flight changed by two hours earlier w/o being notified No entertainment Flight delayed due to passenger"
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
Pros: "Crew was nice Lots of movie choices but the headphone jack isn't compatible with regular personal headphones so you had to use theirs which were uncomfortable and poor sound quality"
Cons: "And they lost our luggage."
Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "Boarding process is a bit chaotic since they dont go by group, but by class. Seats in Business class are no different than economy."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight."
Pros: "This was my first international flight, and also first on Lufthansa, and I was thoroughly impressed. We traveled with another couple who've flown internationally multiple times, but this was their first Lufthansa flight as well, and they said it's the best they'd had. The crew were all excellent, friendly, and accommodating. There was plenty of entertainment options, refreshments, and snacks. The food was very good-much better than I'd expected. I appreciated that there were pillows, blankets, and headphones readily available as well. I'll try to fly Lufthansa every chance I get when flying internationally."
Pros: "Check-in was quick, only 4 parties ahead of me even though I arrived at the airport only 60 minutes prior to departure. Cleared security quickly too. Aircraft new and clean. Breakfast, excellent omelet, and crew extremely attentive to our needs- offering 2 drinks instead of other airlines which just give one and makes you feel that is all you deserve."
Cons: "Couldn't have been better."
Pros: "Crew attitude - so much better than on the indifferent and even hostile US carriers"
Pros: "Courteous flight crew"
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: "After 4 hours of sitting on Tarmac and in lounge, they finally told us that the flight was cancelled. Better safe than sorry. Hotel, dinner...."
Cons: "7 hours of uncertainty. Having to re check in at midnight after the airport ordeal. Mixed messages about check in, baggage location, 400 people all showing up at once this morning to check in, having not been able to print boarding passes."
Pros: "Fast the boarding process all in time good food"
Cons: "All was alright"
Pros: "Cleanliness. Crew members were up and doing. Very efficient."
Cons: "Food needs an upgrade."
Cons: "It was late, we had connection to Berlin and we were in a hurry And forgot things on the plain. They didn't make arrangements to help us be on time for our connection. We had to run. My name is Dan Chevion. Can we get back the items we forgot on the plain?"
Wrote in the previous message. Poor. Delayed flight and lost working day. 4.5h together to rebook the flight, get the hotel voucher, get to the hotel and check in. Insanely slow.
Pros: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "The seating space is horrendous, I am 5 ft 8 and felt like I was sitting with my knees at my chest, horrible horrible seating"
Cons: "The airline lost my suitcase and deliver it only 72 hours later... They refused to give me proper compensation for items that were broken..."
Pros: "The plane ✈️ itself the attendants . The entertainment on board. Really great"
Cons: "Nothing dissatisfying about the flight nor the airline staff . Very polite, very professional. It was a Great flight. For long trips this airline is one of the best."
Cons: "Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again"
Pros: "A flight was delayed due to weather conditions and we had to sit in the plane for almost an hour, BUT information sharing from the Capitan was sufficient and on-time. Very good job from pilots. Leg room in economy - I was positively surprised, very decent leg room! Thank you for providing it."
Cons: "I flew economy and all was good and appropriate to the level."
Pros: "KLM are our airline of choice. A great full-service carrier with impecable standards."
Pros: "Almost everything, especially the crew."
Cons: "Don’t feel like anything should be better to be honest"
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Pros: "Good amount of space on the plane, lots of movies to watch, good food and drink."
Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"
Cons: "Flight got delayed 30 minutes"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."

Pros: "Pleasant flight"
Cons: "We were delayed & missed our connection"
Pros: "Good food, friendly service"
Cons: "More trash pickup; only one round of beverage service"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great service on board. Way better value and service compared to the tacky Irish competition flying the route. Delta all the way"
Cons: "Too much light in the cabin because of too many screens on. Should have a separate part of the cabin with screens off allowing one to sleep more easily."
Cons: "Check in at Berlin was extremly slow. Staff was very unprofessional and not very friendly."
Pros: "Restrooms clean, decent food and drink, nice cabin crew."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight."
Pros: "More than adequate room, And very good service from a very professional staff. Head and shoulders abovevany American carrier, and several European lines I have flown."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."
Pros: "Wifi on Board"
Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Pros: "Delayed flight but staff apologized as for safety reasons."
Cons: "Very late arrival"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Pros: "The crew came to get me from the arrival gate to get to the departure gate since our plane was delayed. It helped to know that the airline was checking to make sure we made the flight."
Cons: "I did not get my luggage in Nairobi. The delayed flight that was the most likely reason it did not get to the connecting flight to Nairobi."
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
Pros: "Flight was lovely, crew were friendly and very helpful and food was delicious!! We travelled with assistance for mum and it was excellent and we were kept updated all through the flight."
Pros: "Service impeccable!"
Cons: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."
Pros: "Pretty basic one hour flight so there's not much to complain about or praise about. I got some sleep which was good."
Cons: "The crew had their general Dutch aloofness on form. Chatted to one of the stewardesses in Dutch up until she saw I had a British passport then she decided she could only speak English to me."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Pros: "Professional, welcoming and very friendly crew, well-maintained aircraft, comfortable seat and good food. Keep up the good work, KLM."
Cons: "Not much to comment on here."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"
Pros: "I really like the spaciousness, the plug ins and general service"
Cons: "I have a dairy allergy but had no option to prepurchase a dairy free meal. It made for a very unenjoyable flight as I couldn't eat anything they had. What was worse was after I told them of my situation they said they understood and had a meal that would do but there was cheese, yogurt, milk chocolate, etc."
Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"
Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"
Cons: "Luggage (being handled by Air France in Basel) was first marked as delayed... nothing of the flight was in the end put on the belt and instead dropped off at Lost and Found. Ridiculous service since this was in no way announced to the people waiting for their suitcase."
Cons: "Airlines had no record of our pets flying with. Missed our flight even though we were there over 3 hours prior. Ruined the last day of vacation. Now we are waiting for the promised help in Amsterdam. No one is here. No one knows anything. Feel like crying"
Pros: "Good food, good entertainment system, comfortable seating."
Cons: "Only one toilet working in business class. A crew member told me that it was a decision to fly with only one toilet to ensure no delay. There was a disgusting stench of sewerage for the complete flight from Amsterdam to Johannesburg. This was in all likelihood due to the broken toilet on the left side."
Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Yet again it was flight delay from KLM side."
Cons: "Stranded for 48 hours in Africa. Missed 3 flights due to complete incompetence, truly a horrible experience."
