Cons: "It was delayed 3hrs but no regret from staff. Doha to staff very bad and arrogant"

Pros: "food ok, economy seats not too bad"
Cons: "old entertainment system. Tight connection and first flight was late, so we got bumped off our connection (they literally removed our names from the flight, even though we could've sprinted through the airport and made it if they waived the 20 minute before departure gate closure). It was an exhausting and long wait for the next flight and I did not think it was well-handled. Staying in a hotel is not a great option, because it takes 2 hours to get out of the airport, another 2 hours cushion to get back in time."

Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site.

Called SWISS customer service on a Russian line, were told to get a paper from another Russian airport that no flights were leaving the city. Did that. when arrived to Moscow no SWISS customer representatives were at the stations and had to end up buying a completely new ticket to get home."

Pros: "Food/ staff/access to TV/movies etc!"
Cons: "Seating/facilities"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and polite."
Cons: "The plane was small, it rattled and shook a lot and the size of the seats is ridiculous. The bathrooms did not have warm water and the sense of comfort is to be found only in business and first class. We fly to Zurich a lot because we have family there and we always take SWISS for a direct flight. They have old planes, the little TVs by the seats may or may not work and although the crew is nice and well trained, they cannot substitute for the discomfort of 10 hours flights in a crammed place. Sorry SWISS."

Pros: "Nice crew, lot of space"

Pros: "Our quick trip from ZUR to FLR was great! Flight was on time and pilot kept all passengers well informed upon our arrival in FLR."

Cons: "12 hours flight just one hot meal."

Pros: "Hard working on board crew"
Cons: "check in procedure in Berlin: That airport is different. You drive right to the gate from which you board the plane. I showed up early and was told that I had to take by suitcase to another location if I wanted to check in 3 hours early. After lugging the suitcase a quarter of a mile, I was told that they don't do that and I had to return to the designated gate at the appropriate time."

Pros: "The Plane was modern, they had food / drinks for us, and overall the flight experience was excellent."
Cons: "Extremely crowded no place to wait, Split Airport has too many planes coming in/out and not much space for passengers."

Pros: "The food wasn’t bad"
Cons: "Business seats suck"

Cons: "I was sitting on seat # 25 A : The distance between the seats in rows # 24 and # 25 was about 6 Inches less than between the other seat rows in front of us and across the isle thus making it VERY uncomfortable when the seat in front was in the sleeping condition. Peter M. Endriss"

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!"

Pros: "From the kind stewards to the easy meal service to my peace of mind, knowing I’ll be well taken care off - SwissAir is the same gem it’s always been."

Pros: "See / hear the middle-aged guy around seat 22 aisle coughing his lungs out throughout the 10 hour flight without once covering his mouth ? WTF is going on w an airline that would let a passenger behave like this ? Didn’t see the attendants offering a cough drop, or asking if he would please behave like a civilized human being. Looking for others corroboration. Spread the word like this guy this w his germs"
Cons: "A grown man coughing loudly during a 10 hr flight w/o once covering his mouth"

Pros: "I bought 2 tikets from Chicago to oscow and back for me and for my son. I live in USA, son lived in Russia but he received immigration visa and I had plan fly to USA with him. From Chicago I used my ticket and say SWISS staff what my son will have trip only from Moscow. I paid for 2 tickets around $1700. Today when we should have trip back to USA, SWISS company said what ticket for my son do not exsist. And I spent for new ticket 220000 rubles about $3600. Nobody in SWISS company do not said me what my tocket for son canceled. I am shoked !!!"

Pros: "Flight crew, food, and seatback entertainment system (with USB charging port) were all great."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and way to close. When the person in front of me leaned their seat back, I was forced to do the same. It was nearly impossible to eat. If you had a hint of claustrophobia, you would never make this entire trip without going nuts. I noticed that many of the middle seats were unoccupied, while my family and I were crammed into four seats side-by-side. If we had empty seats between us the flight would have been bearable."

Pros: "Everything !"

Pros: "My partner and I loved our first flight with Swiss from JFK to Zurich the chairs was amazing, we enjoyed the full bed and the entertainmnet screen was amazing to enjoy. The food was delicious and the service was amazing."
Cons: "My Partner and I was dissatisfied with our connecting from Zurich to Cairo. We expected the same flight but we were in basically in coach with little more leg room. The chairs barely reclined to a comfortable position. There was no entertainment, just a three and a half hour flight at the flight plan on a small tv hanging over. their was no differentiation between the economy behind us. just the food that was brought to us, other felt the same as well who were traveling in business with us."

Cons: "This plane was better."

Cons: "My seat did not recline and my tv did not work"

Pros: "See above. Zurich is a very easy airport and even though our layover was short we never felt rushed or stressed."

Pros: "Passengers completely ignored the commands of the crew and crew was unable to take control of the crowd (passengers refused to follow crew's multiple demands to sit down during the high turbulence, finally crew gave up to force passengers to take a sit). Several times, standing passengers fell on the sitting ines. When at the end of the flight, the issue was pointed out to the captain and supervising flight attendant, both became aggressively defensive to the point of being rude."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was chrgwd to check in the only bag. Yhis is unheard of on intl flights"

Pros: "punctual and friendly enough staff."
Cons: "entertainment and food options were poor and because of the long haul flight once we had a first round of service it was then self serve. I was in a window seat - cld not wake the people beside me and getting up to get water was difficult. Pushed the call button to be told that I cld get it myself!"

Pros: "Registration and baggage check was fine, no line to wait im. The flight was moderately full. Good food and beverage service (although Lufthasa is a bit better)."
Cons: "Zurich airport dining facilities are poor - no choice of warm food and pricey."

Pros: "Crew is very friendly Drinks quality is acceptable Comfortable airplane seats"
Cons: "Both flights from Swiss (from Münich to Zürich and the flight in the opposite direction) were delayed by 30 min and 1h, respectively."

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: "Flight attendants were polite and very nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, as a result i missed the next flight to Washington DC. My whole schedule was messed up as i had to fly through Chicago. My luggage was lost and i only received it 2 days later. Will file the complaint."

Pros: "Great kosher food!"
Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "The staff was friendly and accommodating. I LOVE that we were given ice cream and chocolate - only wish I'd been given more chocolate. They came by with drinks often and made sure that we were well hydrated."
Cons: "The boarding process took a long time. I had to go through customs, then at the gate they checked my passport again and the line was VERY long. The process just did not seem to be managed very well. There were issues with the tv monitors; however, the crew handled it very well. I wish we had been given an option with the calzones - I don't like red peppers or tomatoes, and was not offered another option."

Pros: "On every flight I have ever been on, if I request it I can get a whole water bottle vs. the small cups offered...however on this flight they refused saying 'it is against the rules"?? As a result I had to bother the flight crew over 10 times to refill my small glass...a huge inconvenience for both of us. The other inconvenience (one I have not experienced in over 5-6 years) was the the headphone jacks were the old fashioned kind...meaning you could not use your own, and the buds given by the airline were very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The most racist and unfriendly and uncivilized people ever."

Pros: "Easy and quick"

Pros: "Entertainment, movies music were good selections. We enjoyed them. Although the headphones jack socket for my wife;s seat didn't work properly. They should maintain their equipment better."
Cons: "In Zurich if you travel to US or Canada, they have just before the gates some security check that ONLY verifies the passport. It seemed weird to me. Why are they not excluding transferring passengers from this nightmare. Because it is a nightmare. Long and disorganized lines where travelers, that have diverse leaving times, are trying to enter 4 check points that work slow and nobody manages all that mess. On the plane, absolute unnecessarily (they had extra unoccupied seats) they took one of our carry-on-s with the check in luggage. The seats are extremely tight and offer a very small place for the economy class. Nothing special about the food."

Pros: "super nice crew-really friendly, accommodating, happy, all that sort of thing. really liked them and they're awesome!!"
Cons: "i am a regular sized woman, size 8, and a bit tall 5'9" and the seat felt wayyyy to small for me. couldn't put my hands naturally by my sides and the arm rests were too high to be comfortable, so i had to sit there with my shoulders held up the entire flight. was so sore afterwards!! also, the headphones barely worked (only one side, on the replacement as well!) and the entertainment system shut down twice."

Pros: "In time Nice service Delicious Meals Great Movies"
Cons: "No priority for boarding with Children No internet on Board"

Pros: "Great entertainment, great food, great flight staff, very comfortable economy seats."
Cons: "We left late."

Pros: "Food was decent Cabin crew was great and attentive Bathrooms were clean"
Cons: "Comfort of the seats were bad (why can't anyone make a comfortable seat?) Plane was kept well, but looking forward to the switch to 777"

Pros: "Great Movie selection Got fed a lot (2 meals, 2 snacks, and many beverages) Boarded early and got going to take off early Split up the meals/ snacks good to make the flight go by fast."
Cons: "People rude and inconsiderate about sleepy across multiple unused seats, overall had nothing to do with the airlines and flight."

Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "nothing, all was perfect"

Pros: "Some of the crew were amazing and some were grouchy and not very helpful"

Pros: "No complaints, Turkish airlines is simply one of the best company in Europe."

Pros: "Due to my religious faith I had booked special meals on Turkish Airlines. ( isegnent - Turkey to Washington DC ). Not only did the crew decline having my food reservation but they forced me to have food totally against my faith. Not sure if he airlines is biased against religions"
Cons: "Hon our food reservation Provide food as initially requested Unbiased attitude."

Pros: "The service is amazing .. the crew took care of us well."
Cons: "Not much .. its a comfortable short flight."

Cons: "It took around 15 minutes for airplane to park and I was very near to loose my second flight, if my second flight had not delayed I would have loose it totally."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our first flight got delayed from lax and we missed our connection flight and they wouldn’t let us go on the next flight and instead we had to wait about 7 hours for the next flight!!! Also we got really bad seats on the other flight"

Pros: "Nothing everyone was rude and disrespectful"
Cons: "No one was helping or bothered to help"

Pros: "Easy booking on Kayak! Good service overall."

Pros: "Largely pain free experience"

Cons: "because your flight from Sarajevo to Istanbul was delayed we missed the connection to the SFO flight and had to stay another 24 hours in Turkey + pay $60 for visas......this was a connection that you had scheduled!"

Pros: "Nirmal"
Cons: "Ok"

Cons: "Small seats in the economy class"

Pros: "All good"

Pros: "The international pods were wonderful. Lots of space and could choose from a ton of movies. the bathroom was oversized with plenty of space. And the Bentley travel packs are a very nice touch. The highlight of the trip though is the Turskish Lounge in Istanbul. It has several grand pianos, tons of iMac stations, a freaking golf simulator, and different food stations. Thai, Turkish cuisine a salad bar. It it the best lounge I have experienced 10 fold. It’s the size of a mall."
Cons: "One negative was the beverage service. Iberia and Korean air are much more attentive before and upon take off. Beverage carts come around quite often. Turkish, not so much. Also food was just okay. Feel like other airlines do better in business class"

Pros: "Food"
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: "Facilities are really nice"
Cons: "I only got one boarding pass at the check in."

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Na"

Cons: "The crew blocks economy passengers from moving forward until all of first class has left. No other airline does this and its really annoying"

Cons: "long boarding"

Cons: "Not enough movie varieties"

Cons: "The 2 flights were delayed, I went to my work late Both bags were broken"

Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"

Cons: "Flight attendants are not very nice. Food got much worse compare to previous years Boarding was very long because of the crazy check"

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "Pretty much everything except for the fact that they have no entertainment in Russian"

Pros: "best in all regards"
Cons: "none"

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: "Pretty good quality for an economy class, including free beer and wine, and a variety of movies. Price was the best."
Cons: "The crew deodorizing the bathrooms every hour or so (overdoing ...)."

Pros: "This was my first flight with Turskis Airlines and my best experience with flying to Europe. The food was excellent; we had two hot delicious meals (best airplane food I ever had). The crew was the best - professional yet friendly. TA airfares are cheaper than other airlines so I could spend one day in Istanbul. That alone is worth it!"

Cons: "I have bought two sides ticket from Turkish Airlines. And i miss my first flight, when i came to airport for return flight Turkish Airlines cancel my return flight whitout update by email or massage by phon!!"

Pros: "great!"

Pros: "the crew"

Cons: "Leg space a nighrmare!! Was uncomfortable for all the 13 hrs of the flight. Terrible experience"

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: "politely crew."
Cons: "food caused stomach pain"

Pros: "Friendly smiling faces, smooth boarding, clean and fresh seats, excellent in-flight entertainment, delicious food and timeliness of flight. THY is always on the top!"

Pros: "Two really good meals and there were snacks in the back for the time inbetween. The crew was friendly. This was the best flight I've experienced in a few years."
Cons: "Too little leg room. My knees touched the seat in front."

Pros: "Punctuallity"

Pros: "I had two short flights with Turkish Airlines and on both flights I received good meals and entertainment. Young children in the seats around mine received shrink wrapped comic books and stuffed animals. Headphones were provided to those who needed them. I definitely did not expect such good treatment on such short flights. I really got the impression that they are trying hard to keep the quality of their services as high as possible. I really recommend these guys."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Outstanding service, very attentive crew, careful attention to punctuality."
Cons: "no information on frequent flier program"

Pros: "From the first person I met (the man who printed my boarding pass at the counter) to the crew on board each flight, I was very impressed with the people at Turkish Airlines :) Everyone was very pleasant and helpful, and made my trip enjoyable."

Pros: "Excellent flight experience"
Cons: "Delayed arrival meant my luggage didn't make connecting flight. Bad!"

Pros: "Crew food and entertainment system had many options which helps on such a long flight"
Cons: "Leg room was below average. Entertainment system only had movies. No tv shows so nothing of short duration"

Pros: "Other than the food and a little bit the entertainment (I was given the same comedy episodes for the way there and back) everything was perfect. In the future my first choice is going to be Turkish Airlines!"
Cons: "Even though the service was excellent - the food was just OK. I had the pasta for breakfast - there was no other choice. I hate pasta and in general there were too many carbs and too few protein choices. Maybe it is a personal taste but for me the food was simply not tasty. That applies for everything I had (except the yellow rice which was good). As for the entertainment - I watch mainly comedy episodes on TV. The same episodes were given on all 4 legs."

Cons: "Entwrtainment Audio was noisy"

Pros: "Good food, on time, great entertainment!"
Cons: "Seating room appears lower than average. Boarding somewhat disorganized."

"It was connect flight in Frankfurt and we check the passports and COVID tests 3 times during the transfer! And the last station at the gate stop my husband and double check his documents"

"The flight yesterday on 7/14/2011 was canceled. We haven’t received any notifications of the cancellation. My elderly mom had to sit in the excruciatingly hot Domodedovo airport, without any working conditioners with the temperature inside of the airport nearing 30 C, for more than 24 hours. She was afraid to get up to go to the bathroom, because she was afraid she will loose her sit at the airport. After my mom was informed that her flight was canceled, she asked, what she supposed to do now and where she should go, where would she sleep. She was told by Lufthansa representatives that it is non of their business and she can do whatever she wants. No food vouchers, nor hotel accommodations were offered to my elderly mom. My mom had to pay extra money and get another COVID test because the one she had was expiring on 7/14/2021. Nobody even cares that she has been vaccinated here in USA and has her vaccinations voutcher with her. It is horrendous, what is happening right now!!!!!! Not only my mom became a victim of shooting at her Kingsooper’s store in USA, she couldn’t even return back home to USA in a comfortable, human way after the trip that where supposed to take my mom’s mind off of the shooting at her store. Instead it is causing now enormous anxiety and fear. I am praying that tomorrow she will return back home to USA and non of her flights will be canceled again!"

Pros: "Everything is well organized, crew members were great."
Cons: "Aircraft A330-300 sucks. It is SLOW! Boeng-777 did Moscow-Houston flight in 10 hours, but this A330 flew from Frankfurt to Atlanta in the same time. Shelves for baggage are small - it is not enough room for all passenger bags. Entertainment can be better. Food... It could be SIGNIFICANTLY better! Or just do not serve it et al. If I could I would not buy it."

Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"

Pros: "Lufthansa is an airline in a different class altogether. Can not compare with any commercial airline that flies to Europe"

Pros: "Flight was delayed, but the crew did all they can to make passengers feel comfortable."
Cons: "No food for vegetarians."

Cons: "Space is too limited even for the a small built body."

Cons: "Missed connection flight in Chicago due to a technical delay in Munich, the tank vehicle had a defect and the ground power in Chicago went out. It is now the 4 th time that we got stranded in Chicago. So Condor, Lufthansa and Chicago are getting on our shitlist......"

Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."

Pros: "I just loved the friendliness of the crew. Way to go Lufthansa"
Cons: "Not sure about the seats but they could use some cushion."

Cons: "It was weird that for dinner the meal was vegan as requested, but the breakfast was not and so couldn't eeat it. It was weird that one meal was correct and the other was so lacking."

Pros: "Smooth flight except for tasteless special meal"

Pros: "The service was outstanding!"
Cons: "Someone stole my phone charger :("

Cons: "The flight got delayed and it was a nightmare for my handicap old mom."

Pros: "everything"

Pros: "Best short/medium-haul economy breakfast I've had in a while. Flight was empty, so there was space to stretch out. Watch out for the seat maps – they seem to reconfigure the J/Y balance on this flight frequently, so your seat assignment may change. Such a lovely crew"
Cons: "Moscow passengers were awful as always. Arrival/transit at Frankfurt is a nightmare if you need to be somewhere quick – just walking and riding transit took 30 min. of my two hours."

Cons: "No problems average flight slight delays."

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Good flight crew, professional, glad I arrived on time"

Pros: "Every thing except food. Could be better"
Cons: "B"

Cons: "Less space in the seats than there used to be."

Pros: "Round trips from FRA to DME were great. Round trip from SFO to FRA was okay. It's time for United Airlines upgrade planes."
Cons: "United Airlines needs to upgrade its planes."

Pros: "It's terrible more than 3 hrs delay!!! They should. Ompensate for my parking and extra food for the person picking us up they had to wait met than 3 hrs!!!"
Cons: "It's terrible more than 3 hrs delay!!! They should. Ompensate for my parking and extra food for the person picking us up they had to wait met than 3 hrs!!!"

Cons: "The head flight attendant was very brusque with clients/passengers - demanding we hand back trays in a certain way, demanding people do not get up and stand during a 3 hour flight. At one point she rushed along the aisle to the front of the plain, bumping and hurting my shoulder, but did not bother to apologize. In front of me, was a mother with a child with special needs. The mother had to stand up for some time to have the child curl up and lie in a comfortable position - the attendant rudely commanded her to sit down and strap the child to the seat, instead of finding out how they could help. She could have achieved it with a better attitude and choice of words. The crew did not bother beyond the bare minimum - it was painful to observe."

Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"

Pros: "Good plane"
Cons: "No entertainment on board of the aircraft"

Pros: "Clean plane, decent entertainment options"
Cons: "food was way below the usual Lufthansa standard had a 1.5 hour delay although it wasn't the Lufthansa fault"

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: "The crew was friendly. I did not need to wait in line too much for use of restroom. The flight was on time."

Pros: "Extremely polite and courteous."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not a thing"

Pros: "Moscow to Munich then Paris were good flights. When weather in Munich delayed our return take-off from Paris, the crew did their best to communicate. Upon arrival a Luft employee was at the gate to escort 11 of us to our connecting flight to Moscow. She took us to a special window for passport check, then our own train car to the other terminal. Bravo! Other airlines leave one to navigate alone. Thankyou Lufthansa. Food was decent on both flights in this day of many 'No food' local flights."
Cons: "Zip. All was good for these well seasoned travelers. We appreciate the extra attention."

Pros: "Boarding was okay, we still had the rush towards the beginning and the concern is always finding overhead space"
Cons: "Apparently if you're not awake when they ask you your choice, and it comes time to pass out food and you're awake... You don't get any. Really horrible. Food being handed out, you're hungry and not even an offer. They simply skip you."

Pros: "Very friendly personal, good food and drinks."

Pros: "Crew was very good. Pilots, definitely, were high level professionals."
Cons: "My reservation was cancelled - I found it at DME.. An email, which Lufthansa Moscow promised to send me, had never come. My carry on, while weighted 7 kg, and was, I believe of standard size was not approved. Again, there was an unnecessary on my mind, second TSA-like check at FRA. Lufthansa could just bring me by bus to the departure gates. I believe that police officers with openly carried machine guns INSIDE of TSA secured zone at FRA is too much (though I am not a law enforcement person)."

Pros: "Flight was short. Only 3.x hours."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and seems to be made from paper. Very little leg room. My pregnant wife experienced very unpleasant feelings all flight long."

Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"

Cons: "The airline went on strike the day I was supposed to fly, so at 4:30 in the morning I arrived to the airport and learned that my flight got cancelled. The evening before there were no info about cancellation on internet. But a representative re-booked my trip on the same day with 2 different companies from the other airport and provided a free taxi. So I arrived to my final destination only 3h late. So my ratings will go only to "overall" as OK. On the other flights with Lufthansa the "Entertainment" and "Food" are usually Excellent"

Cons: "Delay in boarding, delay in removing snow/ice, my seat was changed without notifying me (after i checked in on line the day before)"

Cons: "I had a short transit time in Munich (40 minutes). Munich website promises that this is possible and that gates are close to each other and if the first flight is late, then someone will help you to your next flight. My first flight was about 10 mins late. Although assistance was provided to people connecting to some of the other flights, no-one helped me with my connection. I asked two ground staff and was just told to make my own way to the next gate, which was not close. It was in a different terminal! After literally running through two terminals, I did not make it to the gate in time and had to wait for the following flight which got me home over three hours late. Lufthansa did give me a five euro meal voucher though (which doesn't buy very much in an airport cafe)."

Cons: "It was a problem with one passenger, she came from another row and take two seats close to me and my daughter, she wanted to fly with comfort, so I told her it is not nice, this is not her seats and I have a kid with me and she should share wirh another people too, butshe was freeked out because I did a comment, than she asked me what country I'm from and I told: Russia. So she told me she could see why I so unclever...all Russian the same and laughing on me. I didn't expect so racist behavior and I stopped any conversation and complained to flight attendant. And I was double surprise! She went to her talked with her and than tell me that she could take any place she wants and she never told me any racist words, and maybe I'm a lier. I was so upset and I told a passenger that I can go to court when get back to US, she was really scared now and start sorry! But it was to late to sorry! When I asked flight attendant to sorry, she told she do not sorry!!! The flight was Monday October 3rd 2016 Lufthansa 459 San Francisco -Munich, name of flight attendant Eva-Katherine Pfaffel, the passenger seat 44 Diana or E I think, they didn't provide me information about name or her seat. The flight attendant told me it is not big dealing, maybe for Germany it is ok, but in US it is really rude, original I'm from Russia, my daughter too, additionally she is black, it will be really good if I never feel this again, I was in really helpless situation. It is really unpleasant when you spend money and get neglect."

Cons: "The company denied any responsibility for the passenger and for the full fill the trip"

Cons: "Moscow demanded that Lufthansa had to pay 500 dollars"

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: "Crew was great and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Crew was very good on all flights. Packages, containing playing cards and some other items that were given to children during flights, were a nice touch. My husband changed his seat to accommodate a lady who was flying with her daughter, and was acknowledged by the crew and was offered a few extra snacks. Nice touch."
Cons: "Food on this destination was the best of other flight legs."

Pros: "Overall great experience!"

Pros: "Great food and entertainment options."
Cons: "Very slow boarding process. A lot of the boarding crew just standing around waiting instead of moving the passengers thru to board. A half hour delay ensured due to the slow boarding process. Seemed to have no clue how to board efficiently. Seats a little cramped in economy. Passenger who was disabled - could not stand on his own - was seated in an aisle seat and passengers had to climb over him to get in and out the entire flight. Should have been seated in a different seat since he never stood up."

Cons: "Limited space"

Pros: "Great crew and planes"

Pros: "Friendly crew, great access to a variety refreshments, robust entertainment library."
Cons: "No suggestions."

Pros: "Crew good and seat OK but not exceptional for business class"
Cons: "Food was average - main course could have been better. Range of movies ok but not great"

Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "my baggage was lost"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and flight was calm"
Cons: "The coffe and breakfast."

Pros: "Fantastic gate agents!"
Cons: "The food was terrible."

Cons: "I was seated next to the restroom, which is not a pleasant experience for an international flight."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"

Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "Nice attention and good food. Plane and seats are confortable"

Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."

Pros: "Everything was smooth and effortless."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything."

Pros: "The crew was great but the seat wasn't as comfortable and didn't have much leg room."

Pros: "KLM was a great experience compared to Airitalia. The food was good, the flight attendants were very helpful."

Pros: "quick/efficient boarding - good staff - good food - easy flight !"
Cons: "the connecting times for klm seem to be very close - if your running late to start - you may not make your next one -"

Pros: "The flight was smooth, the service was friendly, and the food with plentiful."
Cons: "Too much activity in the cabin during the flight."

Pros: "Lovely crew, very helpful"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"

Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."

Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"

Pros: "short, sweet and to the point. 1+ hour flight is usually an easy hop."

Pros: "Nice people and good service"
Cons: "Not much"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Nice that wine was served without charge."
Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."

Pros: "Restrooms clean, decent food and drink, nice cabin crew."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "I bought the Airport tickets for my Russian friend. However customs would not allow her to board the plane unfortunately. That's not Kayaks fault. I would definitely book with Kayak again. Many thanks."

Pros: "Good flight, arriving well on time."

Pros: "Snooth and efficiënt with a KLM service"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "I am so grateful to have been provided delicious and filling vegan meals on this long flight. Thank you for offering a dietary option that is compassionate toward animals and contributes less to climate change! Now if only the planes were powered by clean, renewable energy... Hopefully that will become a reality someday very soon! Oh, and also the crew on this flight was exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "I did not enjoy the turbulence, which I suppose is unavoidable. More importantly, I felt quite guilty about the greenhouse gas emissions of my flight. I have decided to cut down on my air travel as much as possible as a way of reducing my carbon footprint."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."

Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "I paid a top price for my ticket and expect the advertised amenities to work. Upgrade or replacement for entertainment system."

Cons: "KLM staff in the Prague airport were some of the rudest humans I have ever met. So incredibly uncaring and outright mean."

Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."

Pros: "Sandwich was incredibly tasty (although not much filling)"
Cons: "2 hours on the tarmac delayed with no explanation. Uncomfortable seats, no leg room. Poor management of seating, there was enough empty seats to have groups together but they were split up. Drinks served from a communal bottle in a polystyrene cup."

Pros: "Short flight with good communication."
Cons: "Nil to complain."

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: "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: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."

Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"

Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."

Pros: "newer plane, good staff"
Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"

Cons: "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. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."

Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."

Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."

Cons: "Service"

Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"

Pros: "Very efficient boarding, fast and professional but warm and friendly. The plane was very clean and quite spacious for a two by two configuration. On time departure and landing and smoothed processing at the other end."
Cons: "Nothing to improve"

Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed the plane didn't have wifi / USB"

Cons: "The crew on the Lagos Amsterdam route (in economy) are particularly unfriendly and brusque. This is my experience each time i fly this route in economy"

Cons: "Terrible moslem food, too much lentil with tasteless chicken"

Pros: "Friendly crew. Good snacks. Timely updates about delays.cr"
Cons: "Crew forgot to serve several rows of seats including ours. Came around when reminded, but then said didn't have enough hands to carry trash away and told us to store cups, etc in back seat pocket when landing."

Pros: "Crew was good, boarded early and arrived a bit early."
