Even though we called emirates customer care to afd oyr name in assistance when we booked the ticket but at airport they said we cannot privide any assistance . Moreover one of our family member had wheel chair assistance they never provided wheel chair at Dubai airport reason being they said they have shortage of wheel chairs.

Pros: "The crew was bery rude and not helpful at all. Worst airline we have ever used"

Pros: "The Airbus was very good -as comfortable as possible in Economy."
Cons: "It was a little noisy in our seats (we were next to one of the crew areas). But the biggest gripe was about the way we were treated when queuing. We all expect to have to wait our turn but it's incredibly frustrating when 1) the system isn't fair (eg splitting a queue into two then allowing those behind you to go to the front of a new line) and 2) treating us like second class by drawing a curtain in front of our faces so Business class people don't have to see us when they disembark."

Our boarding passes were collected by your staff, when I raised my voice, were given one wheel chair and I had to run along with the staff or we could have missed the flight. I wanted to have some grub at airport but there was no time."

Cons: "The food could have been better..."

Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"

Pros: "It seems like the company and crew go above and beyond for its passengers. Even those in cabin. We still get treated like first class. That's awesome."

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: "Hardly any leg space"

Cons: "In Istanbul, wheel chair facility was not provided. Wheel chair facility was there with itinerary."

Cons: "Cleanliness of the aircraft, service of the crew members"

Pros: "Traveling business class makes all the difference, as it should. Trolley service lets one see and choose a meal. Attendants were very nice and helpful. Also, the Turkish Air Lounge in Istanbul is incredible and almost worth a destination in its own right."

Cons: "Pathetic vegetarian food."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Good food. I would say there is scope for improvement on wines"

Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was above average. The in-flight crew was fine, although not particularly gracious or kind."
Cons: "Thankfully I did not have to interact with the flight crew or on-ground customer service very much, especially after my flight from San Francisco to Istanbul (which was an absolute nightmare)."

Pros: "I liked the aircraft. They were fairly new and well maintained. New inflight entertainment and movies. Fairly spacious for a medium sized person."
Cons: "I feel the food could have been better."

Pros: "This is the shittiest airline. The flight from delhi to istanbul was canceled due to bad weatherBut their customer service is very pathetic. Their was no intimation in a proper manner. They did not try me to adjust in any of their airline. I had to book another flight at a very high price. This is really insane... i will like my entire refund of the journey..."

Pros: "Flowers in the bathroom! WOW! Hot rolls with meals! Wide variety of choices in online movies. Somehow my name was dropped from the Vegetarian Meal list. (It was there DEL to Istanbul, but not Istanbul to MIA). So, the chief made a grilled veggie plate for me that was excellent. Crew was very polite and handled the situation in a friendly & professional manner."
Cons: "I reserved an aisle seat. Due to lower back & hip problems I need to get up and stretch. Turkish Airlines changed my seat reservation to a middle seat. The woman next to me was rather large, took up a lot of real estate (took up her seat and overflowed onto mine) and was unfriendly. It was impossible for me to get up, or to stretch. I was unable to return to work today due to sciatica problems related to flight seating. (I checked with the flight drew. The plane was full. There were no aisle seats available even if I could afford to upgrade to another class.)"

Pros: "Big aircraft made it a smooth flight"

Pros: "The leg room in economy class was average. Not too cramped. There were good selection of entertainment options to watch/listen."

Cons: "Seats not comfortable for long haul, better care"

Pros: "Attention and comfort"

Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."

Cons: "Boarding process could be better. They can board the end rows first and go back to the first rows. This will help with better flow with passengers not blocking the pathways."

Cons: "Better time management."

Pros: "Good food and crew"
Cons: "Free WiFi"

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: "Im stuck in London due to flight delays. I will never book with kayak again. I am so fed up with travel ticket i booked with kayak"

Pros: "Plane is old and dingy. No charging available and the seats are so uncomfortable. Crew was just ok."

Pros: "Air hostesses was rude in flight from India. I have notice lots of passengers couldn’t speak English and they probably thinks everyone is like that."
Cons: "Tell Air Hostess to be polite if any one asking for something it’s part of their job"

Pros: "Every thing is excillent"

Pros: "Better food ! I had food positing with the meat roll that was provided from Delhi The tv was not working"

Cons: "Seats in economy were too cramped."

Pros: "Good crew unlike previous experience few months ago."
Cons: "Food"

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."

Pros: "All the full service airlines are pretty good in the air. But what sets apart Lufthansa is it's ground staff. On the previous occasion I had left behind my waist bag on the seat containing passports, cash and cards. Their lost and found desk retrieved it quickly, absolutely intact. On the last occasion, my mother in law, who is over 85 was taken care of very well at not only Delhi but especially at the Frankfurt airport. I must truly acknowledge young lady Jessica's efforts, in ensuring that everything was handled very caringly by her personally, for an old lady at the Frankfurt airport."

Pros: "Treated with kindness and courtesy by ground and cabin staff."

Pros: "Window seats on the upper deck have additional luggage storage bins and seem to have more leg room than seats on the main deck."
Cons: "Keep all babies in one section of the aircraft"

Pros: "Staff were efficient and friendly, constantly offering juice and water."
Cons: "Boarding could have been a lot better organized they need to do it the same way Lufthansa does in Los Angeles"

Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."

Pros: "Generally like Lufthansa service - have been flying the airline for 15 years+ Pilots are always excellent"
Cons: "Every flight (to and from India) seems to have the chicken option run out. Why not order accordingly? Had a bad seating experience. LH.com showed that I had completed the boarding process. But when I went to the counter, my seat was changed without my consent (to a worse seat), and I was told that the online process wasn't complete!! Then the website should say accordingly. It's really annoying when this happens. I think the ground crew in New Delhi duped me. At one point, my call button for my meal was ignored for ~30 minutes on the plane. And then I was told there was no more chicken, and handed a veggie wrap. One wonders whether I could have gotten chicken 30 minutes ago!"

Cons: "They made me sit next to a special needs person and did not warn me. I didn’t signup to keep helping the elderly."

Cons: "Two flights delayed then no bags when we got to Chicago- disappointing and annoying. Great to arrive with no coats in winter!"

Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"

Pros: "Great service, on time departures and arrivals, lie flat seats in business class. The planes were relatively new. Waiting lounges at Delhi and Frankfurt are well stocked with food."
Cons: "Almost nothing"

Pros: "Staff and flight were great. We were surrounded by kind of rude flyers. They complained when my husband moved the seat back. And they were just standing in the aisle most of the time. Person in front of me stretched her arms over the seat so her hands were dangling in front of me and fingers in my screen. I know we were in coach, but maybe another inch of separation would be nice for such long flights."
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "I like the lufthansa Flight. The Crew was Amazing."
Cons: "I didn't like there UNITED Flight merger/connecting flight. United flights are not comfortable at all especially seat's cushion. There in-flight Touch Screens are pathetic. Either United Airlines need to upgrade there planes or Lufthansa should think of avoiding them"

Pros: "Aircraft"
Cons: "Food"

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?"

Cons: "My wife has an I797 document. Lufthansa didn't recognize it and I had to book her a business class flight on Qatar airways."

Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Crew was very very rude , special meals were not provided in spite of being confirmed many weeks before"

Cons: "bad business class experience, requested assistance 2 but only one came that alsoafter so much hassel will never travel or recommend"

Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."

Pros: "The airlines gives the best flights possible."

Pros: "Ground Staff helpful. Cockpit pilots communicated effectively. Cabin staff was courteous."
Cons: "The wait prior to takeoff. Flight departed late. The gate counters at IGIA, New Delhi were allowing some passengers to pre-board early even though the passenger was not senior citizen or handicapped, or family with children. Food from New Delhi to Frankfurt was less than optimal in taste."

Pros: "Great services and very good food."

Pros: "Food snacks were awful."

Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff"
Cons: "Food could be better"

Pros: "I appreciated the advance boarding for families traveling with younger children. Plenty of time to settle in with the kiddos."

Cons: "This airline has little respect for its customers. In the economy/coach cabin, they squeeze the seat distances to such an extent that, when the person in front of you leans their chair back, you cannot get out of your seat at an upright angle. You have to significantly bend your body. To not loose your balance, you have to grab on to the seat in front of you and that disturbs the other passenger. If they're sleeping, they can be woken up by that. Lufthansa does not care much for its passengers. Nor do many other companies, for that matter, but I think Lufthansa is taking things further than most airlines. It is a disgrace. Their brand is not what it once was."

Cons: "Everything was good"

Cons: "wheel chair crew ignored us during boarding. my mother had to walk to the gate which was very difficult"

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "changing seat assignment"

Cons: "Leg space is tight"

Pros: "Checkin was timely and the agent helpful!"
Cons: "The immigration line was way too long in New Delhi."

Pros: "The airbus seating was comfortable. It was my first time in this type of plane, and it was a great experience, even in coach class. The crew was great. I gave respects and received 10X more. Thank you Lufthansa!"
Cons: "I don't eat much on long flights so I don't have much to share, though I did feel that food quality can be better. To be fair, the same comments apply to all other airlines that I have flown, with Emirates being the exception. No big issues for me personally, though."

Pros: "Feel like reacist Company"
Cons: "I didnt like the treatment of the crew."

Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us.The food was also mediocre."

Pros: "It was a decent train ride."
Cons: "Stating it’s a train from the beginning and not having to go from one train station to another."

Pros: "The crew was perfect"
Cons: "No wi fi on the plane."

Pros: "The rest area"
Cons: "The airport was cold and it should be warmer"

Pros: "The bread was fresh and food better than other times"
Cons: "Crew is always aggressive and unfriendly"

Pros: "The seat was very comfortable."
Cons: "My boyfriend and I were required to gate check our carry-on luggage which required us to go through customs in Paris to get to our bag and re-enter security for our connecting international flight. I am unsure why this was the case as other passengers brought the same size luggage. Very upsetting."

Cons: "The best airline what I was flying so far !! Excellent food, drink, comfort seat, free entertainment with great selection."

Pros: "Boarding procedures and crew were top. Wines and beverages excellent and even in super economy water was served several times"
Cons: "The food could have been much better, should consider doing everything organic. As it was, the chicken in the meal was awful, the dessert terrible. The rice in the salad hard, almost uncooked. The only good quality food was the bread and the cheese"

Cons: "Plane is old and entertainment facilities are no longer appropriate"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Seat"

Pros: "Good crew, as usual with Air France."
Cons: "Old plane with very lousy seats for a super expensive business class. Super slow check in and overall process till boarding because of lack of ground staff compared to passenger volumes"

Pros: "The food selection and drinks, given our coach class, were excellent. Nice attention to the passengers."

Cons: "There was no entertainment and the food could be better"

Pros: "Friendly attendants, entertainment variety"
Cons: "Comfort, food could have been better."

Cons: "Not to be late ,and not to loose my luggege"

Pros: "The airplane"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Air conditioning too cold. Wasn't offered an evening meal. My luggage went missing and I'm still waiting for it to be delivered."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and the food was excellent."

Cons: "Thanks"

Cons: "shuttle from terminal to plane takes a long time. Flight left late"

Cons: "Arrived 5 hours late"

Cons: "I didn't get to board, ended up spending $2,400.00 over and above the $980.00 that I spent booking the initial ticket. I was not informed when I booked the ticket that when you transit through 2 schengen countries, you need a transit document. I was informed about it at then airport. Not only did I miss my flight, I had to book for the next day at a outrageous price. SUPER BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE...BOTH KAYAK and PRICELINE. Will never recommend you guys to anyone."

Pros: "Entertainment"

Cons: "Not much legroom."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "The food, beverages and choices of movies, entertainment There was a medical emergency that caused the flight to land in Canada. This was handled very professionally - I hope the passenger ended up getting the care needed and is doing well."

Pros: "Everything except the seat. Service ("would you care for a drink/beverage?") could be better."
Cons: "I paid for a"premium" seat on one of the emergency exit rows for the extra legroom. This was next to a galley. The seat itself was no more than 18" wide (NO EXAGGERATION!!) if not less. I had to sit on an angle (one butt cheek at a time) for 9 yours. I do not have a big butt either. This seat should have been a discounted seat, not a premium seat. I am so angry about this, I will NEVER fly Air France again."

Pros: "That flight have been short"
Cons: "Fly attendants have been in hurry when they served snack"

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and always gave the feeling that they want the customers to feel comfortable and enjoy the flight. One of the crew members even offered me to move to an emergency exit seat (without me asking to move) because I am tall. Amazing!"

Pros: "The crew and flight was faultless"
Cons: "We were not advised of a flight number change or checking in location change. This could have resulted in us missing our flight."

Pros: "Sometimes you get surprised, with this specific flight, we had an excellent young and perfect cabin crew. Thanks, Joon!"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They loosed our reserved seats, our luggage, food was awful, ground staff was disrespectful."

Pros: "The space and the people"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "In cabin crew was attentive and friendly. Food was good and came at good times. Middle bathroom on Airbus 380 was big and comfy."
Cons: "Boarding was not too well organized and I followed Security's direction who put me in wrong line and I wasn't able to board with my priority group. Sitting in exit row with no floor storage so this delay made it hard to find overhead storage above my seat. (Grrrr) Entertainment system didn't work which made the flight feel LOOONG. (They offered an in-flight credit, but I'd paid for premium exit row seat and had to choose between moving to working system in crowded middle seat or keep premium, exit seat. I decided to have them move me to a seat with a working entertainment system, which were available and they'd offered, but never happened.) When I got home, I discovered the gift I purchased with in-flight credit and my own money wasn't the one I'd requested from Duty Free catalog so now I have to figure out how to solve this problem. (COULDN'T GET IT RIGHT.) Premium exit row seat was narrow, due to in-seat tray table & entertainment system, but seatbelt mounts and thinly padded seat made it even more uncomfortable on a long flight."

Pros: "Nothing particular"
Cons: "Nothing particular"

Pros: "The price 50€ cheaper than the other operators. Quick flight. Kind crew."
Cons: "Lack organisation for checking. No difference if you have done the checking online. No breakfast on a 7am flight though included in the price."

Cons: "There were not noodle soup ready this time."

Pros: "Friendly onboard staff"
Cons: "Treated like cattle while boarding unless your preferred member. Average food quality."

Pros: "The time of the flight was great as well as the arrival time and subsequent connections to Paris. Enjoyed the rather full line of in flight beverages!"
Cons: "Leaving late seemingly without reason from Paris - chaotic boarding line in Paris with difficult to hear PA. Seats were ok'ish but than again, it's a 45 minute flight. The sandwich was gross and I'm somewhat known as a person who eats everything!"

Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "The seats were terrible, the entertainment units were poor and staff was very reluctant to give proper service."

Cons: "delay for one hour with not even a glass of water very old plan video with tiny screens and bad resolution food quality especially bread is not good"

Pros: "A short flight but attendants served us a snack and water with a smile."
Cons: "No business class"

Pros: "I didn't feel cramped in a Window Seat. Two meals were served during the flight. It was nice to get back to being fed something other than skippy snacks on an airline flight."
Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."

Pros: "The lounge is great, however the food is substandard to nearly every other lounge that I have used."
Cons: "The food on the plane is even worse, The staff were ok but not overly going out of their way to help with any issues, also they could at least pretend to smile."

Pros: "Boeing 777 had a lot of space. Good legroom. Timely departure and arrival, hassle free, safe trip all the way. Enjoyed the red wine; very delicious!"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline. The entertainment unit was very difficult to dislodge and raise to use (We were in the front). Movies were kind of older ones but I had reading to do so entertainment wasn't that important."

Pros: "Good food. Although no Cappucino as in AF from Sanfransisco to Paris."
Cons: "No entertainment at al. Specifically, I could not lean my seat b/c of a mom with a baby behind me..."

Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Long check in wait in Dubai. Food was shocking - inedible!"

Pros: "Pleasant staff."
Cons: "I sat next to an overweight lady and was incredibly uncomfortable my entire flight. There needs to be better regulation for overweight passengers to ensure that every passenger has enough room"

Cons: "Boarding more than 15 minutes late. Departure on time, though"
