Cons: "Food - I wish you have healthy options"
Pros: "Service and entertainment."
Cons: "The plane was delayed at the start but that's was ok you need a safe plane but we missed the next flight. You don't flight to Cuba so missed all the next day flight to Cuba but you lost all four bags and not helping to get them back so missed the rebooked flights again, so stall waiting someone to find them."
Pros: "exellent in everything"
Pros: "Good crew, fair choice of food and drinks and served whenever you want it. Good array of entertainment on offer but our flight was a 'sleeper' so after a fumble with the controls and the limited new releases, I opted to read instead. Not sure we like the Dreamliner configuration and levels of comfort more than the 777 or Airbus offerings but it was fine."
Cons: "A couple on our flight decided it was OK to have their 4-year old run around the cabin shrieking and causing a lot of fuss. Most of us in the cabin complained but these parents were pathetically weak and elected to allow it to continue. No sleep... spoiled experience.. miserable flight in this respect. Terrible Business Lounge 'Aspire' in Gatwick; dirty and poorly equipped - not even Prosecco on offer without paying £5 for a small glass. Qatar should stop using this dreadful place. Crew seemed to have stopped referring to the passengers by name and offer a less-personalised service in Business than we have become accustomed to. The food choices while good, have been paired back as have the selection of wines."
Pros: "Cabin crew service was very good. Flght with Airbus 350 plane was really comfortable and quite. They put extra care for kids and babies and all of kids get gift bag with toys, chocolate etc. which makes everyone happy Especially kids. I personally like to watch new release movies and enjoyed to pass my flight time."
Cons: "Their south indian food was testless in both inbound and outbound flight from Philadelphia to doha. Snacks was good but meal definitely they should have better to change it."
Cons: "There was a person name Manzoor at Lahore airport working with Qatar Airways ticketing he was asking me to pay him $50 to help me get boarding pass. i will also contact Qatar Airways about this incident if this issue is not going to forward to the airline please let me know."
Pros: "Good movie selection, very friendly crew"
Pros: "Seat next to me was empty, helping with the very cramped conditions. Great food. Movies were okay."
Cons: "Late boarding, then delayed further due to departing passenger. Delay caused me to miss my connecting flight in Doha. 5 Star Airline marketing is nonsense. Same cramped seats as any other airline. Boeing 777 is a disappointment. 787 is much better."
Pros: "Very nice staff."
Cons: "Lack of diversity with the area crew. It would be good to have some Black area crew staff."
Cons: "I had been told my checkin bags will be available at final destination but I had to pick them up at Delhi and do the checking in once more which was a lot of hassle with kids"
Pros: "the attention in general for me was excellent."
Cons: "may be the fact that it was the same kind of food in both of the flights I had, is not that it was bad just in my opinion they should have more option, especially for south american people, thank you"
Pros: "Water bottle"
Cons: "There was no snack for the people that don't sleep, it's a long flight, I'd suggest instant noodle cups for those or chips or cookies (I know they hand them out maybe once, but maybe have it near the bathroom, so when people are hungry they don't have to bother the crew)."
Pros: "food, crew ."
Cons: "entertainment choices for Hollywood movies are limited."
Pros: "It has good sized toilets"
Cons: "Snacks and candy served we're of low quality. No prayer facilities inside the plane. They didn't allow me to pray though I got some empty spot to do so. They brought the issue of safety. While fasten seat belt sign was on I found people standing, walking, using toilet etc but air Crew did never brought up the issue of safety."

Cons: "I did not like the fact that on now 3 flights I have lost miles, as on every flight I have tried to sign on as a member or frequent flyer and on all flights, there were no entry forms. This is also after my attempt to complete one on line, which I have had no response to."

They did so with kind and smile within 10 minutes while it was very difficult due to boarding time and luggage switching Boarding was okay Crew also was kind, responsive, Food was great Entertsinment was the issue due to airplane size and airplane facilities like Internet and entertainment tv screen was not in your seat Thank you so much Qatar Airways"

Cons: "In the B10 gate of Doha airport are only 15 chairs and we were around 100 persons waiting to open the gate.

Cons: "Old plane - ACE - very basic movie selection."
Pros: "Crew were great, entertainment was great, all in all a really comfortable flight despite not getting an aisle seat which would have made it even better"
Cons: "I discovered when I hit Dubai that despite having an eight an a half hour layover that I didn't qualify for the free hotel I thought I did qualify for as someone with an eight hour plus flight so that was a little disappointing have had it before so assumed it was on all flights but that ended up being a negative surprise..."
Pros: "Boarding and Crew are excellent toilets are clean Gluten Free meals are available, that's a big plus"
Cons: "Lots of movies to choose from however I felt the choices were similar in a way! ( Example: you'll find the Drama movies are almost the same as the Romantic movies or the Comedy movies)"
Pros: "Professional staff"
Cons: "Cramped hot flight. Paid white a bit more than other carriers, as I was under the impression that seating would be comfortable, the food great, and beverage service would be frequent"
Cons: "The seats on the 777-300ER were tiny compared to the seats on the A380 from JFK to dubai. My wife and I are both small people and we were cramped. This is very unfair to us and even so to larger people on such a long leg The entertainment screens were also very poor. Small, low res"

The ground crew did not give clear instructions to control the crowd."

Cons: "Would have liked more healthy food options d"
Pros: "Food, Legspace and services"
Cons: "Crew wasnt tht helpful"
Cons: "I have traveled extensively but I have never seen a staff more rude than Emirates. I had a connecting flight at Dubai Airport and there was 8 hours waiting time. At the gate I was connecting for Islamabad, there was not a single seating arrangement. When I complained about it to emirates desk, the staff was extremely rude. Such arrogance and an attitude that you instantly abhor. In my opinion, these Emirates people are most racist people in the world. The way they treat passengers from developing countries is vile. Even onboard, they treat 'white' passengers much differently than they would for a brown skin. I would never fly Emirates again. I plan to write against them in some leading newspaper for being racist. If people like us stay quiet and injustice and humiliating attitude they have against us, we will continue to suffer. I can pay a higher price for any other airline but I decline to ever fly with Emirates at the expense of my dignity."
Pros: "Javier the flight attendant was so welcoming and attentive. Flight got l fit late, but arrived on time. Service was efficient and respectful. Was not as crowded as prior flight and was able to eat the meal"
Cons: "Time of flight really sucked. 4:00 AM departure meant arriving at 1.00 AM. Tough way to start a day"
Pros: "Emirates flight was fine. Problem was booking a South African Airways codebase flight on Kayak. Neither SAA or Emerates were able to look up our booking reference and so we did not get seat assignments until the airport."
Cons: "Codebase flights and no one looking as us as customers."
Pros: "I flew from Orlando DL to Dubai ,and from Dubai to cape town and both flight I was selected to seat on the middle seat,f that happens on my return flights to Orlando fl ,I will never fly emirates again"
Pros: "Flight appeared less than half-full, I had a full 4 seats to stretch out. Yes, this was just lucky, but very much appreciated."
Cons: "Dull food."
Pros: "Wasn't full so there was space to street a bit. Stewardesses were polite and attentive - checking throughout whether drinks were required (on other flights they've disappeared between food services). Good selection of films."
Cons: "Although the good was actually alright in this flight, I don't like the fact that Emirates no longer do a vegetarian meal - I have to have a vegan meal instead, which often means things are just left off (not replaced) that I could actually eat, like cheese and biscuits, or a croissant."
Cons: "Boarding announcements weren’t clear and boarding was not separated by zone."
Pros: "Great crew, seats, entertainment options. A 28hr trip felt like 5 because it was so comfortable."
Cons: "I did not like that only one bag is allowed on the flight if you are in economy."
Pros: "It was much better than first leg from Ft Lauderdale to Dubai, better plane, better service, better food, better entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding gate space was quite small and there was no separate queue for business. So you literally had to push through people who were already in the queue to board as a business class. There was no space to go around."

Cons: "There was no vegetarian food."
Pros: "Clean bathrooms, new plane"
Cons: "Families w/ babies overran the flight with incessant crying, talking, and moving around for the entire 14 hour trip!!! It made for a stressful and uncomfortable journey. Families with babies and young kids should be seated in their own section with some type of sound barrier. The flight attendants did nothing to control these families who took over sections of the plane as if it were their own personal space. I empathize, Im a mother. But have some common courtesy!"
Pros: "Being able to sleep comfortably Great staff Food good rather than great but not easy on flight. Well chosen good wines. Chauffeur service to & from airport Ease of checkin"
Pros: "Entertainment facilities very good. Important for those long trips. Food good too"
Pros: "The entertainment system was okay. The cabin crew did the best they could, but did run out of the [honestly very mediocre] food."

Im a silver card holder on Oneworld ao I wanted to have less queue by using Silver card privileges at Malaysian Airlines counter but was not accepted. Had to go onlong queue at Emirates in KLIA but it was fast."

Pros: "The flight was empty and the luxury to choose your open row of seats"
Pros: "The Captain spoke to us a few times and the crew were absolutely amazing. Best flight Ive ever been on."

Cons: "Change the variety of the food same as other airlines do"
Cons: "They were making luggage issues with all passengers"
Pros: "The Turkish crew is very attentive and nice."
Cons: "Turkish airlines is perennially late. I’ve either missed my connection or had to run to my gate every single time I’ve flown internationally with them. This seems to be pretty well known among the travelers that use them often."
Pros: "excellent crew, food entertainment and seats"
Cons: "They were the best among the airlines I ever used"
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Pros: "The service onboard the flight was good as usual. Nice and attentive crew, and tasty food as well."
Cons: "Boarding took too long. The ground crew had all the passengers line up in front of the gate, and wait for about 30 minutes before we were allowed to board. No explanations were given for the delay. The entertainment service needs updating. There didn't seem to be a lot of new movies from the last time time I flew the airline over two months ago."
Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Pros: "Seats and bathrooms were big"
Cons: "Service was extremely slow. I kept having to ask for more water all the time. Flight attendants were nice, but not well trained. Food quality was pretty poor, especially for international business class"
Pros: "Food was excellent. The built in entertainment from movies to games was amazing! It saves you space from having to pack a bunch of electronics."
Cons: "I always enjoy a window seat but the people next to me didn't get up at all! So I was stuck sitting and didn't have a chance to stretch my legs. Not the airlines fault of course. If you put your seat back a little, it just pushes your knees farther forward."
Pros: "Excellent food"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic"
Pros: "Love the food, service and movies."
Cons: "After bus arrived at steps kept on it 20 mins. 2 more buses arrived in this time. Still wait. Then let out all at once. Massive queues to board. Poeple not dressed for this. Poor babies crying Maybe 15 mins waiting in 2am cold on tarmac."
Cons: "Alaways delays"
Pros: "Service was excellent Food was delicious..."
Cons: "Everything was perfect..."
Pros: "Food, boarding"
Cons: "Tight seats"
Cons: "Everything was great. Got upgraded to first class"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled twice within 24 hours before takeoff. All I got was an email saying it was cancelled and a number where no one could help me. I spent over $40 international calls just to reschedule my flight, only to have to take a $80 cab to the airport to have a human help me. Worst customer service and worst experience. I was trying to get home after a natural disaster struck my hometown and Turkish Airlines actually made that experience even worse. At no point did anyone even apologize for cancelling two of my flights without another option until a full week later. I had to pay to fly myself home from Boston because they were so unhelpful. Would never recommend Turkish Airlines to anyone I know whn traveling internationally."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Narrow seats"
Pros: "Food, entertainment, crew"
Pros: "Quick check in. Nice staff."
Pros: "great customer service!!!"
Cons: "I ordered vgml (vegan meal) a head of time, been confirmed, but non of my most recent 4 flights had it:("
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "One of the best airlines over the world"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "The stewardesses were cute"
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"
Cons: "They moved the time up without prior notice. I could have lost the flight. They checked my bag in Antalya via Istanbul to Naples. When arrived in Naples no luggage. After long wait was told it is held in security in Istanbul. They should have not boarded me if they had problem with the luggage or at least they should have told me in Istanbul not after arriving at destination and have to search for an answer. Extremely poor airline and will never fly with them again."
Pros: "The staff was excellent - wonderful service except the people who let some dog owners on board without bothering to check that they were in their soft cases and not smelling up the plane and walking in the aisles when food was served."
Cons: "I wish the seats were just a little more accommodating of a normal sized behind! Hard to squish for 10+ hours."
Pros: "friendly crew and superior service"
Cons: "This time the food was a disappointment. I had ordered a vegan meal and the hot course was dried up pasta, no protein."
Cons: "I am a pilot in uniform flying with a business class ticket and missed my next flight because I had to check my bag because it was 9 kilos. There was not one over head bin that had anything in it. No other airline that I travel on treated me like that it was humiliating and frankly never will chose Turkish again."
Pros: "Patience is a virtue"
Pros: "We were hesitant about flying Turkish Airlines. In the past they have had bad reviews and there had just been the terrorist bombing at the airport. But the flights to Croatia were cheap so we bought. The food was great and plentiful. Staff were very polite. We had a night flight to Istanbul and both my wife an I were able to stretch out in empty middle rows seats and sleep. I would definitely fly them again. They are very underrated."
Cons: "On the flight back our seats did not recline."
Pros: "Service was great food and drink"
Cons: "The air conditioner was not on, it was too hot in the plane."
Pros: "It was a very comfortable flight. Check-in process was smooth, the airline company was sensitive to departure time. Highly recommended."
Pros: "Food was much better than a number of airlines."
Cons: "bathrooms got messy."
Pros: "The food was good for an airline. Crew was nice."
Cons: "It was a long flight in coach."
Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "It was a 12 or 13 hour flight and except for sitting too much we were never uncomfortable. The service level made me think we were back in the 80's. Hot towels, attentive service, tons of food and free drinks. There was actually one meal that we would have eaten even if it wasn't on a plane. They gave out full size blankets and pretty fluffy pillows. (I bring our own anymore, because you never know if you will get one on most airlines, and if you do they're usually useless). Their entertainment system was amazing. We caught up on all the recently released movies that we've wanted to see for FREE! If only Netflix had this quality of movie offerings. They had fresh flowers in the huge bathrooms. It's that type of attention to detail you just really don't see anymore."
Cons: "Can't think of a thing that could actually be changed."
Pros: "Service when it was done"
Cons: "Infrequent service Crowded Entertainment system bad"
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The cup holder on my seat was broken and wouldn't stay up... So minor. Other than that, we had a very pleasant flight in TA."
Pros: "We flew during the first week of the Atlanta to Istanbul flight on Turkish airlines. The plane is new, seats were comfortable and in flight service meals were tasty. Good selection of food and alcohol. Also, new movies and good selection of top rated movies to keep us entertained for this 10 hour or so flight."
Cons: "Staff wasn't all that friendly. My husband and I fly all the time on domestic and international airlines ( American, Delta, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Korean Air, etc). The flight attendants just do not seem happy at all. They hustle around and speak to passengers in a very brisk and cold manner. Customer service training is warranted if they truly want to be a best in class global airline."
Pros: "Good food, comfortable seat."
Cons: "Our bag arrived without the walking poles attached to it. So far (more than a week after the flight) we haven't heard from Turkish Airlines anything about our complaint regarding this loss of baggage."
Pros: "Super friendly & helpful staff! Good food and drink, very nice flight! Nice movie selection and good music!"
Pros: "The crew is professional yet very courteous and friendly."
Pros: "i love the fact that there is a chef on board..and that hey give the electric candke fior dinner. food is excellent. the lounge in instanbul (business) is impressive. the ver best lounge in the world, i would say:)"
Cons: "the ride was very bumpy: lots of turbulence. Of corse it is not the fault of the pilot, although more communications from the crew would be helpful. in general, there is very little communications from pilot/crew to passengers."
Pros: "Crew is great, Food is good. Overall experience is excellent. Recommend 100% ."
Pros: "Fue muy buen vuelo y el personal muy amable Gracias !!"
Cons: "Lo q mas me gusto q fue un vuelo a tiempo y amables el personal"

Pros: "Fueron muy amables en el aeropuerto y en el avión"
Cons: "La atención de las personas a cargo"
Pros: "Safe trip and very nice crew."
Cons: "Something to work on is organizing the flights in order when you are checking in. I arrived and it was a mess, we didn't know where to go and which line to take. Please make sure you put signs so we can follow and be more organized."
Cons: "It was so cold! People all over were asking for blankets and commenting on the coldness"
Pros: "Crew very nice."
Cons: "Better food"
Cons: "The boarding was processed by one agent. He did a fine job but took too long to board. Needed to have 2 people managing boarding the plane"
Cons: "Explain why there’s over a 2 hour delay"
Cons: "The Delta flight leaving Cleveland was a hour and a half late so we could not make our connection to get home and had to overnight in Minneapolis. This is the fourth time in six flights For Delta. I think the Kayak booking algorithm needs to allow more time between connecting flights."
Cons: "Connecting flight to as delayed. And my dad was not able to get on the plane."
Pros: "It was delayed"
Cons: "Never made it because of my originating flight"
Pros: "Great entertainment system."
Cons: "Sat in comfort+, bbut never offered any sort of snack. Not sure why it is considered an upgrade."
Pros: "On time, good flight"
Cons: "No power on outlets at waiting room airport, charge 2 dollars for earplugs"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight because the first flight was delayed by 2.5 hours. I didn’t get the comfort seat I paid for because of this and was not given a refund for it."

Cons: "Flight left late due to problem with cleaning crew, seats are uncomfortable, snacks were stale."
Pros: "Nice plane staff"

Cons: "Never on time"
Cons: "It was perfect, left on time, arrived early!!,"
Cons: "Boarding was awful. It took about an hour to board and no reason was given until we were taxiing. (The crew was delayed.) Overhead storage was insufficient. Seats are too narrow. I paid for extra leg room, which I got, but I don't appreciate elbows in my ribs for the whole flight."
Cons: "flight rerouted to LAX!"
Cons: "Service, puntuality, the flight was delay, no word of apology for been late"
Cons: "Nothing everything smooth"

Pros: "That I had room to accommodate my at the time disability and the crew members amazing"
Cons: "No Tv at all."
Pros: "Super friendly staff and on-time flights. Love the TV, movies, wi-fi and snack goodies!"
Pros: "Gate personal kept us notified about flight delay. Flight crew was very positive on plane and they were as miserable about the delay as we were. Snacks and drinks were brought out. The gate crew keeping us updated is what saved the name of Delta. If she didnt do that people would have been angry."
Cons: "Flight was supposed to depart at 0730. Actual departure was 1045. Three out of seven of the flight crew were not happy about how badly they were being treated by call center and /or management while they were delayed with us at gate. Snacks were brought out because of delay but they were just junk food. Nothing I could eat due to allergies."
Cons: "The prices of the available snacks."
Cons: "The crew, the airplane and the service at the airport was the worse experience of my life, I will definetly avoid Delta and Aeromexico for my future trips."
Cons: "My suitcase came without a wheel. Damaged luggage."
Pros: "Very nice entertainment and staff"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "Seating was nice...comfortable. Lighting was good, captain wasn't too chatty :)"
Cons: "This flight attendant was just terrible. Wish I could remember her name for this review... She had about half of the First Class cabin offended as soon as meals started getting served - I didn't see ANYONE around me that got what they asked for, and then when people stated the issue, she didn't respond very well. I tried to take things in stride (first world problems?) but it is a bummer to pay extra for the first class treatment and then to not have that great experience, especially on back to back 5ish hour flights."
Pros: "Flew delta a few days ago and this wasn't an issue but you've gotta do better on the wifi and tv front. Part of my decision to fly delta is entertainment."
Cons: "Wifi was too slow to stream (audio only) a live sporting event. No satellite tv for the entire flight with no announcement - I had to ask the crew twice what was up."
Cons: "Waited on tarmac at Laguardia more than 45 minutes after landing for gate to open up."
Pros: "The leg room and freedom of not having another seat in front of me throughout this flight was great. It made getting comfortable a lot easier."
Cons: "We couldn't hear the overhead announcements at all. Seated right next to the turbine intake on the wing made the amount of ambient noise especially high, so all the in-flight announcements were pretty much unintelligible."
Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "Food wasn't great cookie!"
Cons: "We were delayed over half an hour waiting for late passengers and then we had to sit on the runway in LA for another half and hour before a gate opened up and I almost missed my connection."
Pros: "I've never seen such a modern and easy to use entertainment system before. All the movies are complimentary."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and apologetic"
Cons: "The AC did not work and we had to get off and hang out in the jetway for probably 45 minutes. Nightmare."
Cons: "they treated us like cows"
Pros: "Flight was ontime taking off and arriving and was a smooth flight. Security and gate area at PDX was very easy to navigate and not too crowded."
Cons: "Seats are very tight pitch, uncomfortable. No amenities were provided. Also, I prefer Southwest-style boarding (no assigned seats)."
Cons: "To be fair the flight from Honolulu to Lihue was on Hawaiian Air, not Delta per se. The crew was rude, but in the terminal and on board. Didn't really rate food and entrainment because of the flight length."
Pros: "Very confusing going through security."
Cons: "Not being delayed at takeoff. We didn’t have enough time, as it was, to catch our flight to Boston and had to run to catch our flight. The scanners at passport control were also a problem."
Cons: "Very long flight"
Pros: "I enjoying having an aisle seat plus two empty seats next to me. I appreciated that you are conserving plastic cups. Keep up the conservation!"
Pros: "Seat back tv’s"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours, food was mediocre at best"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "Yes super crew and super seat. ( next to empty seat) Nice new plane"
Cons: "This one couldn’t have been better. Plenty of food snacks and drinks"
Cons: "the entertainment kept cutting in and out on itself, and i was listening to classical music and it simply didn't work to hear anything whole. annoying but not critical"
Cons: "Confortable seats"
Cons: "No TV in the chair ,even no group TV The the crew member in the business class lady was too aggressive in her way as if we are working for her , too tide chairs"
Pros: "Seating is terribly tight"
Cons: "A normal human sized seat."
Pros: "Super easy boarding, just scan your ticket and go. Staff was very friendly. On our short flight from Munich to Rome we were served a complimentary sandwich and option of beer, wine or other refreshments. There was plenty of leg room compared to our other recent flights"
Cons: "There was no in flight entertainment. Not that was really needed it with such a short flight."
Pros: "The problem was with the booking, cancelled flights- under stable- but nobody willing to make it right. Flights still screwed up"
Cons: "Give some customer service to your paying customers. Don't make a bad situation worse. Practice a can do attitude. Very disappointed in customer service. Not the flight itself."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, the food was surprisingly delicious and despite weather conditions being rough and causing significant turbulence the pilot handled it well and landed so smoothly I could honestly barely tell we had landed!"
Cons: "The seats were pretty comfortable for economy seats but still could have been a bit more comfortable. The standard leg room could be increased as well as overhead storage"
Pros: "Very amazing"
Cons: "Bought the premium economy on Lufthansa, but ended up on Eurowings. Food same as Economy, 1/2 the entertainment choices. Definitely not worth the money."
Cons: "Airplane food eatable"
Pros: "Food was great!"
Pros: "On board crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Muslim meal does not mean all Muslims eat curry. It’s rediculous that we cant have a decent English breakfast instead you get curry or some form of curry for breakfast, lunch and supper. Your so called Muslim meals are not suitable for kids!! There is no such thing as a Muslim meal either. It’s simply called Halal otherwise then everyone else’s meals should be called Christian or Jewish meals etc. Also I requested help with transfer to my last flight which was horrendous because I’m one adult with 4 kids ages 1 to 11 and my eldest has sever learning disability. I nearly missed my flight because our flight landed late and I was struggling to keep my kids safe and together while running for the next flight. Somone should have been there to help with transfer."
Cons: "boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "Each time I travel with Lufthansa care, comfort, amd customer service are such a high priority"
Pros: "Nothing really. KLM or LOT are way better."
Cons: "Get your own food or you will stay hungry. 12 hours flight with 2 crappy meals served with no option of getting anything else except candy bars or pretzels."
Pros: "Entertainment system was superior and flight crew very nice. Plenty of drinks and food available."
Cons: "Seats and food are typical for airline economy class"
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "The counter staff in Heathrow was great"
Pros: "All operations are handled consistently and efficiently."
Cons: "Like my outbound flight—the internet (which I purchased a 24 hour package for $19) was slow and, when I was logged off, could not log on again. Not sure if the backbone went down or if they had maxed out the number of users. But-was unable to use it for the bukx of the flight."
Pros: "Telling you you're stupid"
Cons: "getting too many emails about a flight that I've never took"
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Cons: "The business class seats which are a lot more costly than economy seats are no different than economy seats. Same seat and on a 5 hour flight they are awful. The only difference from economy is that the middle seat is left empty....a help toward comfort, but far short especially when the price difference is factored in."
Pros: "Always professional in every detail Great food Great customer service"
Cons: "The variety of drinks"
Pros: "The crew was more helpful than the transatlantic flight."
Cons: "My seat. It was right behind the first class and as the crew rushed to serve them, they threw the separating curtain at my face as I was sitting on the corridor. It was so frequent I couldn't sleep and the passanger did the same."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean plane. Flight was on time. Free drink!"
Cons: "As with almost every flight in Europe, boarding was chaotic, not following zones, priority or people requiring assistance/gate agents did not enforce the boarding rules."
Pros: "I was upgraded after all the pressure from thehurrricane this was the icing on the cake"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't working. 11 hour flight. Boring. No seat change available. No reading light, as light controlled by entertainment system. Seats in front of toilet cluster lit up every time door was opened. Crew were slow to react. Wasn't a priority. Ruined the excellent first leg of had from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. Do they run inferior planes to South Africa compared to USA?"
Pros: "I arrived at the airport early and the check in staff offered an earlier flight so I wouldn't miss my connection. Crew was courteous and the sandwich on board was quite good"
Cons: "Slim seats very uncomfortable and legroom too little"
Cons: "Charges for suitcase 40 euros this rediculas"
Cons: "Entertainment center did not work. I paid for wifi and did not work and need my money back. The headphone jack for the tv did not work."
Pros: "Clean, friendly environment, friendly staff."
Cons: "Little space. No wifi. The food was from a Russian vendor, which is good, except the bread rolls where puffy and from the freezer. I don't think it was butter, more like margarine."
Pros: "Boarding and departure+arrival times were excellent. Baggage was handled well, arrived without damage. Much better marks here than AirFrance."
Cons: "Food was quite poor, much worse than KLM or Delta... no match for AirFrance,thoug I'd rather get poor food and arrive on time and without getting stranded at CDG. Also, Neither on-board wifi, nor the entertainment touchscreen worked, not at all. You'd be well advised to bring your own iPad... :-))"
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "as usual flight itself was okay"
Cons: "no major complaints"
Pros: "I like the services"
Cons: "The boarding gate was changed three times. I fell asleep at one of the gates. Luckily I woke up and realized the second change in time to still make it there."
Pros: "on time."
Cons: "was too congested"
Cons: "The service provided by the crew was okay but their attitudes were horrible. It seems as though they did not want to work."
Pros: "Great flight attendants"
Pros: "Without the help of the attendants at the gate waiting to take us to the connecting flight, we would not have made it! So grateful for their help! Food was very good for airplane food and movie choices were excellent."
Cons: "Seats were quite uncomfortable due to inadequate leg room."
Pros: "Decent food, wide variety of in flight entertainment (movies and tv shows) and great, friendly service! Overall great value! Will fly Lufthansa again if going to Europe!"
Pros: "Friendly service, clean plane, good food for economy class, and entertainment was good. Seats were not bad for economy."
Cons: "For some reason this A340 does not have air vents in the passenger service unit. This is a first for me, as every other plane I've ever been on has air vents that the passenger can position to direct cool air. This airplane lacks these! For some reason our area of the plane in row 35 was so hot. It must have been 80F and air was not moving. It seems like other areas of the plane may have been cooler."
Pros: "crew, cleanliness"
Cons: "very little legroom, very uncomfortable for travellers who cannot afford business class"
Cons: "No any form of inflight entertainment Uncomfortable chairs Food was below average I had to ask 3 times for a glass of water"
