Airline reviews

The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!

Cons: "The entertainment system did not work properly"
Pros: "Very friendly staff, prompt service, smooth boarding, clean cabin."
Cons: "I usually love the food on Emirates but this was really not good. Barely edible!"
Cons: "more western vegetarian options"
Cons: "Me"
Pros: "I like the crew."
Cons: "All good."
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)"
Cons: "Breads must be at least warm. The breads were frozen."
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"
Pros: "great flight service with accommodating staff. in flight entertainment had awesome variety"
Pros: "Excellent all round.a"
Pros: "Very responsive and friendly crew"
Cons: "Would like to see more vegetarian options"
Cons: "I thought that may i find a gluten free food on airplane"
Cons: "I thought I had paid for window seats."
Cons: "Food was bland, repetitive (poor choice and variety) Crew was unwelcoming. Had to ask multiple times for water, soda and also take away plates I have travelled emirates before so this flight was bad compared to previous experiences"
Cons: "flight was delayed for 4 plus hours after they started the boarding process! food was ok."
Pros: "Lovely flight crew and great film selection"
Cons: "Would have liked more healthy food options d"
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: "The overall experience was good from boarding to disembark. emirates is a quality airline with affordable pricing. Planes were neat and clean cabin crew did their job at their best."
Cons: "In some instances their was a shortage of food option. Although the menu said you could have a choice but some of the choices were exhausted by the time crew served it to the half of the travellers and the rest have to eat whatever was leftover. I think Emirates should stock a bit more of the food especially on a plane like Airbus 380. Its a huge aircraft and passengers sting at the vey end had to wait almost 45 min to 1 hr to get their food and that too was whatever leftover. They should make efforts to server all the passengers within a short amount to time rather than keep them waiting for so long. Most of the time more than half of the passengers had already eaten while those sitting in the back were still waiting for their food. Its not cabin crew's inefficiency but rather a policy problem that needs to be addressed."
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: "Smooth ride. Great food."
Cons: "Slow boarding started later than expected"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Kayak booked the ticket through flight network and when we reached airport the airline staff was not able to find the ticket. The flight was missed in trying to find what went wrong and when called the flight network they told that due to insufficient time between booking and departure time they canceled the reservation. No message was sent for cancelation and it caused a lot of troubles and grief to all involved."
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: "You give me exelent space behind the exit ..tnx"
Pros: "Arriving at Perth is always a hassle with delayed baggage unloading. Can Emirates engage their own staff to expedite this activity. The Perth baggage handlers are too slow, particularly when on penalty rates on Sundays."

Cons: "During initial boarding at IAD our carry on baggage was ok. But boarding at Dubai there was carry-on baggage weight check and we had to pay additional $200. And then our baggage was then checked in. Seemed to be totally unethical."

Cons: "My flight had a luggage limit of 30kg, which sounds good, until you find you pay per kilo, not per piece when you're over."
Pros: "The entertainment system was okay. The cabin crew did the best they could, but did run out of the [honestly very mediocre] food."
Cons: "Emirates' economy cabin is extremely crowded. The food is mediocre even for airplane food."

Cons: "Screen was black and white most of flight"
Pros: "Emirates flight and on flight services were Superb!"
Cons: "Bought tickets on Malaysian Airlines quota/allocation but was turned away by Malaysian Airlines counter becausw its operated by Emirates. 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.

Food

This flight was cancelled

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "On March 4, my wife and I made a flight from New York to Sydney with a transfer in Doha, Qatar. We flew the Qatar airline business class. Everything was great despite a very large flight. New plane, very clean. Wide comfortable seats turning into a large comfortable bed. Great menu and good wine list. All staff are professionally trained and very friendly. All this made this flight very comfortable and we were not tired."
Pros: "Amazing service. Incredible comfort."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was terrific. Great service. New aircraft are comfortable too."
Cons: "Food. Meals are of poor quality. Bland in taste and rubbery texture."
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "The purser and the business class cabin attendants were amazing. Great choice of meals. Fantastic experience"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "The seat was ok and the food was good."
Cons: "Though the staff was friendly, I found them a bit unhelpful. I was literally holding three bags and a toddler in my arms, and passed at least three airline crew members. However, not one of them even bothered offering for help. I don’t expect that from a world class airline."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. The plane was new."
Cons: "There was a limited choice in movies. Boarding and deplaning took a while."
Pros: "The Crew was amazing, the Seat a bit better this Time only 3row of 3 Seat"

Pros: "Crew was really amazing."
Cons: "Wifi not working- huge disappointment. Seats a bit hard on A350. The overhead bins on the inside suitable only for tall people."
Pros: "Everything frim the xrew I could at the JKIA, NBO to Delhi. One thing more from my city Lubumbashi, I didn't care about getting my phone bzttery low. I could chzrge my phone all the journey long. And from Nairobi, I dodn't czre at zll about my phobe, because I knew I could charge dur to the usb device. If ever something to complain about, I'll let you know. Regards Richzrd DIAS"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The food and flight staff were good"
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Qatar beats every US based airline, hands down! The planes are clean and modern with better seats, leg room, technology, food and staff. Everything is included in the cost of a ticket, something that US airlines should learn! I cannot say enough about the experience and wood recommend to anyone traveling to destinations served by this airline."
Cons: "I cannot think of a single thing."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."

Pros: "Awesome experience provided by inflight crew, who attended to all your needs for this long for flight. Made us feel really at home!"
Pros: "All the services plus the entire team"
Pros: "Plane was excellent"
Cons: "Original schedule was changed from Sunday departure to Saturday without notifying us resulting in a 12 hour stay at Philadelphia and a one day loss of our scheduled trip. So far no explanation from webjet."
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "great entertainment system friendly staff"
Cons: "very cramped flight, even when just partially full light food for an 8 hour flight"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "Great amenities and service - fed often throughout trip and great console with games, movies, etc."
Cons: "The neck rest was a bit tall and deep for a shorter person with a smaller neck - it caused me some discomfort while trying to rest."
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Pros: "i do like service in plane and at the counter no problem with baggage.all ok.thank for good service.sincerly vladimir hodan"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Cons: "The flight from Sao Paulo to Doha was canceled which delayed our travel by 24 hrs. With the baggage being mis-labeled from Rio we almost lost our bags. the crew was not communicative and the entire experience terribly stressful."
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"

Best airline

Cons: "Seats were torn and adjustments were malfunctional. No drinks were offered. Wifi did not work either."
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: "Average Seat comfortably is ok"
Cons: "God knows"
Cons: "Everything is exellent"
Pros: "The plane was late for operational reasons - the team made efforts to make the delay as short as possible."
Cons: "The plane is really old - I could not adjust the air flow above my seat since it was broken."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "One piece of our luggage did not arrive on time."
Pros: "Crew was very good and seat in long trip was comfortable"
Cons: "Boarding in first leg needs more organization"
Pros: "Everything...the food was delicious, the staff was gracious and always went the extra mile."
Pros: "Entertainment options were excellent. A lot to choose from. Provided small travel bag for the flight. Airplane was clean They offered for the first drink a homemade lemon with fresh mint which was wonderful. Will definitely fly them again. Great price"
Cons: "Low sodium meal was not tasty. Could not finish it due to lack texture."
Pros: "On time ,good food ,good price"
Pros: "Sleeping accommodations, storage, crew attentiveness in business class was outstanding. 5he business lounge in Istanbul was the best ever. Great airline."
Cons: "Flights were delayed for 24 hours!!!! Do not take this airlines. Inside the airport they can't even speak English. They are rude and raciest. No wheelchair were provided for the old people."
Pros: "Courteous service, onetime arrival,"
Cons: "I booked a place in advance, but the place was changed because I did not check in 24 hours before the flight. And I got a place near the restroom. It was terrible!!!! it was impossible to sleep and eat normally. And the smell of the restroom all the way. Very upset."
Cons: "They cancelled my returning flight WITHOUT me knowing and expecting me to pay for the penalty fee for misisng the first flight even tho I DID not cancel the returning flight which obviously I was gonna take. The staff was RUDE and INSENSITIVE. Qatar was better in overall customer service. Worst customer service from Turkish airline."
Pros: "The food was good!"
Cons: "I wish there was more legs room - 11 hours it iss long time to stay in one place"
Pros: "The entertainment, the food, the free wine."
Cons: "The small space of the economy seating area. It was very crowded and the staff wasn’t too keen on taking plates from passengers after they’ve eaten so often we were stuck with our trays and couldn’t get up or move. Boarding was a pain from Istanbul. The security check was chaotic and I wish they had a more sanitary way of checking everyone’s bags instead of using the same pair of gloves to search every passenger’s bag and do a body check."
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: "I traveled solo with 2 toddlers. It was obviously not the best flight I’ve had but the staff was super helpful. The flight attendant got me the changing table ready every time I had to change my daughter. And always they helped me to stay with one of my kids when I had to take the other one to the bathroom. They were really kind and offered many kids related stuff (headphones, baby care kit, kids travel kit, etc.) Plus the food was amazing as always in Turkish Airlines."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seats are not spaced enough. It is not big enough for a 6 foot 3 male caucasian. My Screen was broken."
Pros: "The crew and the food were great."
Cons: "There was a dispute about a seat assignment and the flight attendant stated that she did NOT have the authority to decide the outcome. One passenger was in another passengers seat and refused to leave because it was next to a relatives seat."
Pros: "Turkish airlines has great service and crew in plane."
Cons: "Hi, The flight was great. However my layover at airport lounge was long. I didn't like their (Turkish Business lounge)policy for not letting me have the room to sleep as the layover was more than 7hrs. I was told to ask for a hotel at reception. When i did, they said that they dont have any hotel inside and cant take me to ourside hotel too. The staff at reception of lounge was not courteous either. I only needed the room to sleep for 3 or 4 hrs. Anyway, the flight itself was great, no complaints"
Pros: "Flight left on time. Crew was friendly and was multilingual. Entertainment on our personal monitors was good."
Cons: "Overall it was a good flight but since I was not familiar Turkish Air, there were some glitches. Although I'm not wheelchair bound, I have great difficulty walking distances with fear of falling. I was never offered some assistance by the Houston airport or the airline at this point. The seating on the plane is difficult to maneuver for a disabled person. The flight was OK except for cramped spaces. The flight left on time and that was good considering Houston had just gone through the hurricane."
Pros: "Nobody wants to sit on a plane for 10-14 hours but Turkish airlines made it enjoyable! Excellent customer service. We had plenty of beverages, sleeping kits, a wide range of entertainment on the screens, and they had my vegetarian meals ready. Always friendly and helpful."
Cons: "If there was about a foot more legroom, that would be awesome! But I would probably have to pay for first-class to achieve that. ;-)"
Pros: "Old school service and amenities"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Not good food service."
Pros: "The care taken to wrap the electronic equipment you were mandated to confiscate. That part was handled well"
Cons: "Retrieving the electronic equipment was a chaotic nightmare. There was no order. There were two lines where passenger did line up in than others cut the line claiming they had connecting flights. Those in charge never verified whether they were connecting to another flight. Never asked for their boarding pass. I heard some laughing saying they did no have connecting flights. I better job and method of handling this situation is needed as long as the ban is in effect. Otherwise, Turkish airlines is fine. My wife and I have traveled most airlines and travel extensively. So, we are aware of good service and bad. Your service minus the electronic equipment is good."
Cons: "Food was dried out and tasteless"
Pros: "Smaller aircraft but better seats, comfortable"
Cons: "The air conditioner stopped working it was in incredibly hot on the aircraft cabin"
Pros: "As above"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "The crew was great. Flight normal, food and drinks good."
Cons: "Boarding took a little longer and was delayed without them giving us a reason for it."
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: "Good service and good food!"
Cons: "Thé flight was full and I felt as if I was in a can of sardines!!! The plane is old and the video system did not function well!"
Cons: "They lost my baggage.i got 7lb of red caviar .My red caviar deteriorated.i spend 50$ per lb which is 350$ total and Turkish airlines agents didn't help me find my luggage .in the end they pay only 100$ back for my caviar even when i tald them that i spend 350$ total . It is was Flight from Chicago to Ashgabat"
Pros: "entertainment"
Cons: "Seating too narrow"
Pros: "The crew and flight it self was great"
Cons: "Tuna sandwich not good and flight was an hour delayed"
Pros: "The service was good."
Cons: "Unfortunately, I was rerouted and flew from Istanbul to Dushanbe. (instead of to Khujand) This meant that I needed to take a taxi 6 hours through the mountains to get to Khujand. I hope the flights to Khujand resume again shortly."
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: "basically the entertainment was the only positive part of the experience and the mac and cheese was ok"
Cons: "The airline apparently switched us to an earlier flight however we had received NOT A SINGLE email telling us that our flight had been moved. We had continued to receive emails for our original flight which still existed. Have no idea why they would move us in the first place and not tell us. We had to go through the hassle of getting switched back to our earlier flight which took an additional hour of dealing with people. This mimics our experience flying from Dalaman to Istanbul when our flight was canceled and we received no notification. They told us it was too early to receive a notification (we were there 12 hours in advance). However, had we arrived within the suggested window and found out it was canceled we never would have been able to reschedule to a connecting flight that still got us to Madrid in time.When checking our bags, the clerk tried to tell us that a backpack and small purse were too big to count as personal items even though they had been fine on ALL of our previous flights. I pointed out that individuals in other lines had larger backpacks that were being counted and he finally acquiesced but with a lot of attitude. The plane was then an hour late. The sign for boarding continued to tell us it was on time up until 45 minutes AFTER we were supposed to have boarded when it finally updated and said 'delayed'. The crew stood around laughing and providing zero updates as we all worried about whether or not we would make our connecting flights. TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE OVERALL"
Cons: "Rude stewardess"
Pros: "Comfort was excellent and the crew very nice!"
Cons: "My baggage was damaged."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "No applicable"
Pros: "Excellent food, service and on-time"
Cons: "Seats too close together. Also -- and VERY important -- they are so close together that they shouldn't be allowed to tilt back and press further into the person n the back's knees. NOTE: Turkish Airlines is, by far, not alone with this problem. Airlines have jammed too many seats in the plane. Increase fares a tad and give more knee space."
Pros: "The entertainment selection"
Cons: "Boarding"
Pros: "the etaff is friendly and they try"
Cons: "The boarding process was a nightmare! They boarded everyone at once instead of business class first, ect...gate agents were more interested in playing in cell phones."
Cons: "food was served cold i had flown them before and the food was good , this time is was terrible - basically not edible, so during that very long flight I ate almost nothing and to top it off the food was served cold staff did not speak english well at all"

The Pilot were very professional to Explain what direction the plan will take to get La gaurdia .That what I like best 👌👍5*

Professional all the way

The flight departed late and the interior temperature was very cold for the first hour of the flight. Eventually it warmed up to a normal temperature. The crew was great. My seat in comfort class was comfortable. There was no food served---only snacks.

The flight attendants were happy!

So much space!

Pros: "Very spacious."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "I wish the airlines, all airlines would keep the middle seat vacant on all flights!! Such a comfortable feeling and flight. I’ve flown multiple times this summer during Covid, having that middle seat vacant has made traveling by air for me a very good, comfortable thing again. Don’t ever go back to packing us in like cattle car flights!!"
Cons: "TVs/outlets on my side and section of the plane were not working."
Pros: "They did not clean with antiseptic the tray tables and tv screens between flights. Because of corona virus scare. I asked stewardess and she said no"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and the seats were comfortable"
Pros: "The atl to bwi leg was not great. No inflight entertainment and the aircraft looked old."
Cons: "A newer aircraft that doesn't show its age would be nice"
Pros: "Kudos to the employees who really tried to help rather than pay mere lip service."
Cons: "The plane experienced a mechanical issue forcing us to return to the gate after waiting for an hour. The staff was clearly overwhelmed and focused on moving us along (Cheryl) rather than resolving our need to reach our destinations.it wasn’t until we found one extremely patient and persistent employee (LaShondra-?) who booked us through NYC rather than Atlanta so we reached Rochester on the same day. So the questions are- why don’t the airport hold a larger inventory of parts, why aren’t there back up planes and why doesn’t the software better cope with these types of situations?"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Both the pilots and flight attendants timed out at different times. After boarding we had to deplane because crew was timing out. Had to fly new crew in from Atlanta. Was in airport from 10:50am to 8pm with airlines offering a bag of chips and water."
Cons: "Not cancelling our flight"
Cons: "Plane was FREEZING!!!"
Cons: "the flight was delayed and so I missed my train home"
Pros: "The crew was spectacular. My son and daughter-in-law (married the day before) were are the flight as well, and the flight crew went out of their way to welcome them."
Cons: "Excellent"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Pros: "I liked that we were able to use the go go entertainment from the headrest. Lots of things to choose from to watch"
Cons: "We could of been on time, we had a connection I. Atlanta and had 15 minutes to spare"
Pros: "Flight timing and gate arrival"
Cons: "Boarding"
Pros: "Terrific service."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Full flight. We weren’t able to chose our seats and were put in middle seats in different rows."
Pros: "Boarding was on time; flight departures on time and arrived earlier than expected! Pilot told us exactly what was the status and gave us updates; cabin was well air conditioned; flight attendants were friendly; bags came out very quick! Very nice flight"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and found me a new seat when I requested one."
Cons: "My assigned seat was next to a morbidly obese man. He overflowed his seat and took up at least five inches of my seat. The seats have become so narrow that even an average weight male has trouble fitting his shoulders into the seats."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic and very helpful."
Cons: "Not sure who was in charge of loading the plane with food for purchase, but they forgot it all entirely. The crew was kind enough to give extra snacks. Kinda curious how you forgot to load a plane with food for purchase and how did the crew not notice in advance? I would think that is one of their checks of the cabin. Not mention who ever signed off saying they filled the plane with food for purchase lied. Very frustrating not only for the crew but for the passengers."
Cons: "Both Virgin plans needed a deep cleaning."
Cons: "On time and nice media"
Pros: "The gentleman that was calling zone 1, etc etc. was amazing. I should have grabbed his name. Kept us informed and thanked us and really appreciated our business. He rocked!"
Pros: "The crew did the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for 7:45 pm. Due to the storm the day before, my flight out of Miami was cancelled and I was told that the flight out of W Palm Beach was my only option. I paid $150 for an Uber at 4 pm. At 6:37, I got an email with news of a two hour delay. I would’ve appreciated an earlier notice. But much worse was the boarding experience. As half the passengers had boarded, someone announced that we had to have everyone boarded and seated in 5 minutes, or else the crew would time out, and we’d have to stay in WPalm. This set off a frenzy, with seated passengers yelling at the people boarding to hurry!! I was told by the pilot while exiting in LGA, that we made it by 30 seconds! It could’ve been handled so much better!"
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "I was not able to change seats..."
Pros: "On time; safe flight"
Cons: "Service from boarding to landing was impersonal. No headphones etc. Etc."
Pros: "Service was fast and the inflight entertainment is free. Lots of movies to chose from, which is nice for the long flight."
Cons: "It was the most cramped I have ever felt in a plane and also the longest flight. Horrible combination. Some of the crew were snippy."
Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "The stewards and flight was overall fine. In fact I found the stewards to Atlanta from West Palm very accommodating."
Cons: "I have reservation on booking Comfort plus next time I fly though. There appeared to be no difference in the seating or service as economy. A lesson learn I guess. I will atillflyDelta but stick to economy. I saw no perks"
Cons: "Time to bring in dual class flights!"
Cons: "The seats are very small even for a petite person."
Pros: "Just getting to my destination"
Cons: "Service very poor and seats very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Flight left late and missed connecting flight in Atlanta. It's 9:30 pm and I'm still stuck in Atlanta airport."
Pros: "On time. Funny pilot"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Crew did an outstanding job"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Clean, polite, informed"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Got from point A to point B"
Cons: "nothing all was good as expected."
Cons: "Flight was 7 hours delayed and every 2 hours of waiting they delayed the flight 2 more hours"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, the crew on board was nice"
Cons: "Boarding and unboarding was unorganized and hectic. Also the crew broke my luggage and because I didn't go to the counter right afterwards I can't be reimbursed for it"
Pros: "Left on time. Boarded easily and arrived early"
Cons: "Flying :)"
Pros: "Itinerary - hours of flight"
Cons: "Dinner could have been earlier"
Cons: "More space on economy for long flights."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good food served by this airline"
Cons: "The woman seated next to me had the worst body odor ever and this was a 10 hour flight-nearly brought me to hurl. She was the mother of s flight attendant as well, and was constantly brought amenities from the first class cabin. Really not appropriate for the rest of us in premium economy"
Cons: "Better eat before you board. The food from Denver to Munich was truly uneatable. I am serious and I am not a picky eater."
Pros: "Terrible flight. Super tight seats. Major airport delay to take off and land. Overall not a good experience."
Pros: "The crew was o.k."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, great seats in economy with lots of legroom."
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: "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: "It was a short, smooth flight"
Cons: "I had paid extra to pick seats and they were moved without informing me prior to the flight."
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "Greate service, good food, planty of legs room, everything on schedule and super comunication via email, text messeges!"
Pros: "Attendants very nice. Movie selection...OK....not great ON TIME!...except"
Cons: "Food mediocre in economy class Seat back in front of me was stuck in non upright position by 1.5 inches which made me feel uncomfortable...too cramped. Pilot landed us early & then we sat on tarmac for 30 mins + because gate wasn't ready!"
Cons: "Flight was late causing me to miss flight to Chicago ORD. Missed flight left me waiting in Frankfurt over-night with-out a hotel, nor anyone from Lufthansa to assist with finding a sleeping cot. No airport/Lufthansa staff would offer to bring me a cot and all attempts by me to locate a cot were unsuccessful leaving me to walk from area to area to locate were the cots were stored. Ten Euro meal compensation was severely inadequate to cover dinner and breakfast. Very dissatisfied."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and this is consistent with my previous experiences with Lufthansa. The salami sandwich provided was actually very good."
Cons: "The slimline seats were not very comfortable. I would hesitate to fly Lufthansa's narrow bodies for flights greater than 2 hours."
Cons: "I didn't fly with Lufthansa...n I didn't fly to Frankfurt..right now I'm in Zurich...Switzerland..."
Pros: "Everything went off without a hitch. Love how organized Lufthansa is."
Pros: "Clean aircraft, very friendly crew, good food, overall great trip."
Pros: "cabin crew were all very nice!"
Pros: "Friendliness of the crew, they not only served us well, they were having fun doing it. Job well done. Thank you all."
Cons: "Nothing really, everything was great."
Pros: "Clean plane, efficient and professional crew"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Firstly, the food was great!"
Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "Flight was not on time. They did not even make arrangements for connecting flights after knowing we would be late. Airhostness looked like they did not care about anyone in general got a negative vibe from her."
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: "Your staff is professional and extremely smart, well versed in many languages. Keep up the good work!"
Pros: "The crew are friendly and generous"
Pros: "The meal was very delicious and had a good selections of different movies. The crew was attentive and helpful."
Pros: "Liked the crew, the food, blanket and pillow."
Cons: "Frankfurt airport wheelchair service needs to be better administrated."
Pros: "The Lufthansa service starting with the baggage checkers in Newark NJ. They provide service and a enjoyable flying experience."
Cons: "The layover in Frankfort was long and the gate we went out is in need of an upgrade but B10"
Pros: "The food was pretty good. Normally I can't eat airplane food but it was actually good."
Cons: "The seat didn't go back at all"
Pros: "Quick and easy in all aspects"
Pros: "food was great"
Cons: "gate changed and we gad to take the bus to the plane which lead to sn delay and almost the plane couldn't leave before the airport closed. however, we eventually made it ..."
Cons: "My flight got delayed so I wasn't even in the airplane. I'm staying at the airport for 24 hours before the next one leaves. Didn't offer hote, blanket or anything. They didnt care. I'm never flying united airlines again."
Cons: "It took over an hour to drop off a bag prior to boarding. I had already checked in online. There were long lines in Bucharest and simply not enough staff working the Lufthansa desks."
Pros: "Perfect"
Pros: "All the staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Terrible leg room."
Pros: "I ordered gluten free meals on both of my longer flights and the crew seemed to have difficulty distributing them to the appropriate seats. My flight from Boston-Munich was fine but on my return trip from Frankfurt-Boston, I didn't receive a gluten free meal and the passenger behind me was given my gluten free snack."
Pros: "Excellent connection arrangements in Munich. Departing gate just steps away from the arriving one!!! German punctuality as well."
Cons: "Too little space between consecutive rows on the plane."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Missed my flight because of other flight delayed. I had to rerouted through 2 extra airports."
Pros: "TV & movie selection, food and drinks were great! staff was friendly and there seemed to be a bit more room between seats!"
Cons: "I paid money to select our seats on our flights and did not get those seats on any of the four flights we were on. It was a complete scam. I asked a flight attendant and she told me lufthansa does not have the option to pay for seat selection. Every other aspect was good."
Pros: "Great airline with friendly crew, good food and entertainment."
Pros: "Staff , food , wine"
Cons: "Sat too close to the toilets , bad wafting smells. Only 1 earphone on my head set worked, unless I jiggled the plug. The plug did not fit neatly into the jack ."
Pros: "It was a very early flight and I feel asleep the majority of the trip."
Pros: "I like that everything is done fairly quickly and efficiently."
Cons: "It may be a cultural thing for some, but two of the flight attendants did not smile at all. Not even really an acknowledgement when I said hello to them. And I tried throughout the flight to see if it was just because they were too busy or simply did not hear or notice me. It's not a big deal now, but it can be if the whole staff were to become silent and non-interactive."
Pros: "Worst flight experience EVER"
Cons: "Still have not found our lost bags"
Pros: "vunderbar"
Pros: "The Crew was and professional and the flight was overall very comfy with great entertainment."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and due to this delay, my checked baggage did not make it onto my connecting flight to my final destination until 12 hours later. I know the airline can't control some of this but I had to go out and purchase clothing that I couldn't take in my carry on. Maybe they could've at least given me a little money towards this?"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Nothing"
