Comfortable flight and personable flight staff.

Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "The WiFi"
Pros: "Seats very comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "It’s an international flight. It is what it is!"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "The crew was really wonderful. They went the extra mile- pun intended- to make sure me and my family were comfortable. They were especially kind to my daughter. The plane was also great, very clean and well equipped. The 8 hours from Munich to JFK flew by very quickly."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and efficient! Flight was fairly on time"
Cons: "Selection of movies was not the best I've experienced"
Pros: "Friendly crew, tried their best to accommodate"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and once in the plane more delay followed. Food was pasta (again!) while entertainment was non-existent. Flight is long enough to show at least a route map."
Pros: "On time, clean plane, good service."
Cons: "Lack of seating at departure gate, costumer agent at gate was rude about standing early for boarding (see first comment). Food was not my style my wife enjoyed it."
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: "Clean airplane, Nice seats. Very nice crew. Good connecting flight."
Pros: "Crew were very good and helpful. Efficient and very helpful."
Cons: "It looks like Lufthansa has decided to make business class more like "Premium Economy" with lie flat seats. 1) Food was very average with very little selection. 2) Dessert was a joke - other airlines have ice cream sundaes 3) NO HANDICAP BATHROOM. Must be illegal. FAA require Disability access by Disabilities Act. 4) Amenities kit - worst I have seen in all the airlines I have traveled. 5) Snack bar - No selection, just small chocolate, water and orange juice. Even economy planes like Jet Blue have better selection. German people are getting used to mediocrity and I am surprised. World class airline with cheap customer side product. Don't cut costs on things that customers see, touch and eat. To add to that, my mother in law is handicapped. When transferring her to the gate, they took her in a bus and did not strap the wheel chairs next to her chair. All of them fell on her - YES! THEY ALL FELL FROM A HEIGHT ON A HANDICAPPED PERSON WHO HAS ARTHRITIS AND IN PAIN ALL THE TIME. Damaged her knee joints. This is why we travel business class - and they hurt her more than if we took her our selves."
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: "Some how i ended up in the "small child zone", The crew was very kind and moved me to another aisle seal towards the front of the plane. Crew would come by with liquids quit often, The food was very good quality. huge selection of entertainment options."
Cons: "A very long wait for luggage, That may have been the fault of the airport."
Cons: "Confusion with boarding process at gate. Once in plane, long delay with no explanation provided. No info about arrival and possible conflict with connecting flight."
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."
Cons: "Flight from Frankfurt to Copenhagen was over an hour late. Flight from Copenhagen to Frankfurt was also late, causing us to miss our connecting flight home on United."
Cons: "Too uncomfortable for sleep, but that’s every economy flight now."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "The plane, entertainment and crew (except for the one flight attendant who seemed to think she was too good for the job). The personal at the airport were very helpful."
Cons: "A flight attendant was impatient with children, cranky and rude. Other members of the crew were very friendly and let my son check the second floor and cockpit. There was only one choose of main course."
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Cons: "The boarding procedure was unorganized and extremely inefficient. The family sitting in the row across from us had two unparented and very loud children who were disruptive for the entire 10 hour flight. Even on landing the child was not wearing a seat belt. The woman got up to get her stuff out of the overhead compartment even though we were told to stay seated. At no point did any of the crew members do anything in regards to this family and their disruptive actions."
Pros: "Good attitude"
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: "The seats and leg room were spacious enough. I liked the many options of movies."
Cons: "The vegetarian option was gone for the second meal. The touch screen TV was not working properly. Had to push the buttons multiple times"
Pros: "Flight from Budapest to Munich was slightly delayed and I had a tight connection time to begin with. The effort the Lufthansa staff made to get me to me connection was heroic."
Cons: "Will newer agan fly business with Lufthansa!! It's not business at all just regular econom seats with short leg room and casual service. They should be sorry for that kind of business!!"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Seats were spacious and leg room was really good. Crew were friendly and efficient. Entertainment was varied and extensive."
Cons: "Food was awful. Muslim meals were gross. Need to find a new vendor in Germany. Breakfast was very poor. We were starving when we got to Washington. No snacks were provided. I would prefer a seafood or vegetarian option. Bathroom were filthy. For such a long flight there has to be a backup for dirty bathrooms"
Pros: "Crew was great. Food was good."
Pros: "Crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "Lack of personal space on plane. Couldn't eat my meals without rubbing elbows with the guy in front. Not enough room for my under seat bag."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They ran out of food choices, so I had to go with mushroom pasta."
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "Friendliness of crew, punctuality of flight; complimentary plum cake; good selection of drinks. We were able to check in and choose seats online."
Cons: "The crew we had was very impatient and irritated quickly. The flighy attendent name was Jorge. Starting at the beggining of the flight before we took of I asked him about the head phones. One child had one on tye chair and I asked him if its suppose to be on the seat or given later on. He said it will be passed later and then with a patronizing manner he gave another head phone set and said: "I guess we havw an emergency". On the flight, every time he with the food and drinks he just stood there next to me talking over my head with the passenger begind me. Very uncomfortable, especially when it happens 6 or 7 times. When asking what drink we wanted ( the first time), i replied apple and orange juicewith no ice. He replied, with a patronizing manner "this it European company, not American company. Here we don't put ive if you do not ask for it".The incident that bother me the most is one that involved my kids also. My daughter (3 years old) was a bit scared of the flight, tired and did not want to sit on her chair. We tried to keek her on the chair buy she started crying laying down on the floor infront of our seats. Jorge the flight attendant saw her and told me to put her on the seat. Not in a manner I expect out of soneone in the service industry. I told him we are working on it and we will have her on the chair as soon as we can. When I said that he got irritated and a bit aggressive. For no reason the situation became hostile. The flight attendent on the other side (do not know his name). Can over and asked us what we needed amd if we need help. I told the other flight attendant we need 5 minutes and he said OK. After a few minutes she calmed down. Anotger passenger asked Jorge what beer it is and he replied, with contempt, " its German beer, its good"."
Pros: "I will never use again"
Cons: "Nothing to like , people very rude"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "McDonald's type food. I couldn't eat it at all. TV screen with very slow response, almost impossible to use. Very frustrating on a long flight."
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Food was salty, couldn't eat it. No replacement available Luggage disembarkment took forever"
Cons: "Seats were very cramped in economy. A big factor on a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Courteous and professional."
Pros: "The flight attendance were nice."
Cons: "One of worst EU to US flights ever. Food was Ick, entertainment?? (even if you paid for the premium the choices were bad)."
Cons: "The seats were very cramped. A little about my height, I'm 5'2" and had a difficult time with no leg room. I sat by the window which gave me a little more wiggle room but it was not the most comfortable flight. Also a note about being able to get up from the seat to move about. The other person in the row had to get up to allow me in and out and I still had to make sure not to pull on the seat in front of me just trying to get up out of the seat. Thankfully, I only had to get out twice through the whole flight."
Pros: "Thai chicken dinner was good"
Cons: "Cold breakfast sandwich. It said on the package it was "oven able", the spread was rock hard, bread hard, would have been better warmed up. Leg room is tight"
Cons: "I paid for a reserved window seat so I could sleep. The passenger next to me was such a large man his arms and shoulder came way over into my seat space and I had to sit in an awkward and very uncomfortable position twisting my back for the entire flight. I cannot believe I paid extra to be in this position. My back still hurts from being in that position for 9 hours. I was miserable the entire way. And I paid extra for this discomfort. The big guy was plenty comfortable as he took up my seat space and slept well. Not happy at all with the flight and how Lufthansa crams people into seats."
Pros: "Just much more professional than US carriers... Also much more leg room in economy class then most US carriers"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "The Budapest Airport was not very organized for check-in."
Pros: "Very nice staff."
Cons: "Boarding could has been smoother."
Pros: "The crew were good and worked hard with what they had."
Cons: "The flight was more than 2 hours late, the entertainment system for the entire cabin paused every few seconds and they ran out of one of the food choices very early."

Pros: "The crew was really friendly."
Cons: "There was a Force Majeur delay in Helsinki due to wings freezing that caused 20 minute delay to Amsterdam and made the interchange stressful."
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "The food rocks! I know that I will always be eating well with KLM. The staff is always so nice, professional and cordial...I always know I'll be in good hands with the flight."
Cons: "Food had only vegetarian choices. No charging place and ambiance was noisy"
Pros: "Able to fly direct to ansterdam"
Cons: "Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines."
Pros: "We got a meal for a 1h flight only"
Cons: "No entertainment but normal for this type of flight"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful, entertainment system worked well and had good choices"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, it was uncomfortably hot and there was not air conditioner vent above like most other airlines"
Pros: "Booked extra room seat which gave me good room for seating"
Cons: "The 767 is configured oddly and th business class seats are so narrow it feel like you are sleeping in a coffin"
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."
Pros: "Just great crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable at all and will not book KLM again."
Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
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."
Cons: "KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty."
Pros: "The cabin crew were pretty good. That's about all that was good."
Cons: "I paid almost $400 for upgraded seats. When I got to the airport-- no seats-- both ways!! i didn't even have regular seat assignments. I had to choose from the last few seats available. The ticket agent, the gate agent and the cabin crew all did nothing to make up for the fact that their system screwed up and stuck me in a cramped coach seat in the back of the plane for 11 hours-- TWICE! Beyond that, KLM must have one of the oldest fleets in the sky. Both ways LAX->AMS->LAX, I was on a 30-35 year old 747 with no wifi, no power and a ten-year-old entertainment system. Never again."
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: "had problems checking in , in that I was charged for a suitcase! I have since checked my paper work and found thad that I had paid for a case! I will follow this up when I return to the UK"
Pros: "Everything. Staff incredible."
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
Pros: "Food and staff were great"
Cons: "Entertainment system old and not as many options as other KLM flight. No power on aircraft for charging"
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."
Pros: "captain was great."
Pros: "Except for my negative comment, a good flight."
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, but due to the poor alignment of the seats with the actual windows, I actually sat next to a wall! Nol much to see out of a wall. If KLM are going to charge extra for a window seat, then they should make sure there is a window there! If the seat had actually had a window it would have been an excellent flight."
Cons: "Since we had two extra bags (paid for in Chicago), they demanded to see my receipt before we could board in Amsterdam to Nairobi. We had trouble locating the receipt and we were not given an explanation as to why we needed it again. We were traveling with 5 kids including an infant and we were not allowed to board until we found the receipt. I thought surely they would have record that I had paid, but I guess not. We were the last to board and all very stressed out. The staff seemed not to care the least in our troubles."
Pros: "Almost missed flight due to line at customs and having to pick up suitcase and check in again, they did wait for me though"
Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "Seat"
Pros: "Crew was excellent explaining about the (short) delay."
Pros: "Reasonable seat space for economy. Good selection of movies. Food reasonably good. Crew very efficient."
Cons: "Boarding at Amsterdam was disorganized. All economy boarded together. No row number boarding (which was the process for the outbound flight from San Francisco). Lights in economy were not switched off or even dimmed during the flight making it difficult to sleep especially if you had a window seat."
