Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Pros: "Very helpful and kind crew. On time boarding and departure."
Cons: "If the crew cleaned the toilet more often and picked up trash from passengers and worked faster."
Cons: "Too hot in the plane - was far too hot. too late the drink...after I eaten."
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
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: "Good flight"
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."

Pros: "Very poor Service on a 16 hour flight"
Pros: "Excellent Service and most friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing was bad. But the food taste can be better"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."

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."

Pros: "The airplane seats in economy were comfortable for the very long flights I took with Qatar Airlines. The seats had enough room between the back of the other seat.

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: "Hindu meal only be vegetarian"
Cons: "All is good"
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: "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: "Could not be more impressed with the airline, absolutely would recommend to anyone!"
Cons: "I was charged a insanly high fee for my luggage that was almost twice the price of my original flight ticket purchase. the agent offered no resolution for the confusion in their web descriptions for baggage allowance. This must happen to customers frequently because the wording is not clear. i was very upset and due to this i will NOT fly this airline again. i was charged the price of a first call flight in total for economy service. NOT GOOD"
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: "If a customer has not ordered Vegeterian / Special meal earlier, the crew doesn't carry any extra meal."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."

Pros: "Flight was not crowded, room to stretch out. Food and service was good."
Cons: "Difficult boarding procedure."
Cons: "Worse staff at mumbai airport. Even thou i was ready to pay for the upgrade to business class. They told me am not eligible to do it. Extremly dissappointed with the airline and staff"
Pros: "Excellent in every way. Clearly a top tier airlines. I will choose Qatar Airlines at every opportunity."
Pros: "The service given from the crew from the moment i checked in was amazing. The flight was smooth and went well. The music and movie selection could be a little bit better. The food was good, but the portion was small and it feels limited. But overall it was amazing experience considering i got a really good price for this flight! Thank you, Qatar."
Cons: "The food portion was small and feels like during the flight the food or i might say snack was limited. The music and movies selection needs a little update and upgrade. I was pretty upset that from LA to Denpasar both the aircrafts didnt have wifi."
Pros: "The crew, they were very pleasant and good about taking care of our needs."
Cons: "The middle console video went out on my husband at the end of the flight, while he was watching a movie. This also happened on the earlier flight from Singapore to Doha."
Pros: "The crew was great, trully world class service"
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and friendly. Qatar airlines also provided tons of food. Lastly the tv/games was a good source of entertainment."

Pros: "The take off and landing was very good."
Cons: "The entertainments."
Cons: "Flight lest 2 hours late. Didn’t have my choice of meal. Cabin crew very inattentive. Worst flight ever with Emirates in business class"
Cons: "Not taking the blankets and headphones away 30-40 minutes before the flight landed"
Cons: "During checkin process they weighed my laptop bag along with my hand baggage a small suitcase. Laptop is considered as personal item. The combined weight exceeded 7 kg and hence I had pay for excess baggage even though my checked in Baggage were close correct 23 kg limit. This was an issue with most"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I wished I was in business class..."
Pros: "Great service and attitudes by staff."
Pros: "Direct flight"

Pros: "I liked the Inflight entertainment and the crew were hospitable and courteous"
Pros: "Flight itself was normal. Flight crew was adequate and courteousdr"
Cons: "Drunk passenger has to be removed prior to take off. Thus delaying takeoff and arrival. Apparently this flight is a connecting flight for many. Well the different awful body odor form numerous passenger is offensive. Especially for such a long flight. Economy can be torture"
Pros: "The journey ending"
Cons: "The length of travel!"
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."
Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"
Cons: "My trip was business class from US to Dubai: The attendant woke me up for lunch time to tell me you have only one option as all other options are already taken! Wifi service was not working the whole flight duration because it was not even installed yet on the new aircraft."
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "This seemed far different from emirate flights that I'm used to. Over the years their service has decreased but the 1 meal and sub-par snack I got for an 8.5hr flight was poor, likened to a budget airline. This is the second flight recently I've been on that the drinks come so long after the meal you don't even get to enjoy your cola with the meal. The first food cart should have colas if there won't be another cart to come along until 30+ minutes later. I also expected Emirates to provide an eye patch, an 8 hr+ flight in the night time hours in worthy of an eyepatch. Budget airlines do not provide this, but I expected Emirates to. Lastly, I don't think it's necessary to hand out a menu indicating there is something to look forward to when the food is of quite poor standards for Emirates, standard for all other airlines. Maybe the Durban to Dubai route stocks he flights with less experienced crew, this is the impression I got; a much less refined group of people on the plane."
Pros: "Attentitive staff, leg room, food, entertainment - all great"
Cons: "Still wish I could buy better wine during the flight from Economy. Would pay $100 a bottle for great wine. The wine in coach is undrinkable."
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Pros: "Online checking"
Cons: "N/ A"
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "I was travelling to Addis Ababa on Dec29 But I wanted to celebrate New years eve in Dubai and stayed for 6days',But that wasn't Good idea.They charge me More than $300 for my luggage to go Addis Ababa,I know I have extra luggage but my thought was starting seattle until Addis."
Cons: "I will never ever use emirates"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "They canceled our flight because they were over booked ,we had to stay overnight , overall very unhappy with the airline , they forced us to purchase new tickets , will take legal action against the airline"
Pros: "A380 is really comfortable even in economy and choice for entertainment is great"
Cons: "Crew are great during standard service runs such as meal / drinks but outside of assigned duties trying to get their attention is almost impossible as the are busy chatting. Pressed the cabin crew call button and took over 15 mins for someone to respond (and only after I caught someone's attention walking past - for the second time, the first person took my request then never reappeared). This despite at least 8 crew members walking past me."
Pros: "Loved the seating space. Comfortable seats and I was able to stretch my legs a bit even though I was in economy. Didn't even feel like I was in the air for almost 9 hours."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit late and could have been organised better."
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Pros: "Crew can be more helpful"
Pros: "Comfort and service"
Cons: "I couldnt make online check-in on my departure and arrival trip. Connection with Fly Dubai (Emirates branch) is very complicated at the Dubai aeroport."
Cons: "Old plane. Uncomfortable seats"
"Better entertainment options and faster boarding."
"One of my bags didnt arrived. It was a priority bag. And the flight was a really bad experience. There were two kids (2-3 years old) from two families in business class that cried during literally 10 hours! Was a really long flight"
"Hi. You canceled my trip and now you are asking me for review? Check my trip record and you will have my review. Call your customer service and you will have the answer. This was the worst experience in my life. Sorry for you."
Cons: "I requested a vegan vegetarian meal and did not get it. I had to do with the regular meal which had a lot of dairy products to which I am allergic to. The space between rows of seats. It was really crammed in Economy and we are a petite thin family!"
Pros: "About as good as they come."
Pros: "Orderly boarding process. Considerate reseating when bulkhead with extra legroom were not usable."
Pros: "Crew was great, seating comfortable."
Cons: "Could've been on time"
Cons: "seat comfort"
Pros: "Punctual modern aircraft."
Cons: "The onky bad thing was luggage collection. Belt 6 tucked away. The luggage was so quick coming off that there was no-one to collect it . The belt was soon full and no.more luggage could enter the belt until the luggage on the belt was claimed"
Pros: "good availability of food"
Cons: "seats did not have much space at all. Legs constantly squished and there was no room to move them the whole trip. not much movie selection available."
Pros: ";Flight attendants very attentive;"
Cons: "Leg space far too tight; could barely move; Unable to see TV screen due to angle, even at max tilt; Food was inedible; perhaps acceptable as dog food; Toilet seat would not stay up for male to pee. Worst international aircraft I've ever experienced. Recommend upgrading before selling any more seats."
Pros: "Great cabin crew!"
Cons: "While waiting to board SFO-ZRH flight Swissair personnel walked around and randomly pulled out passengers from line to check luggage dimensions. Since manufacturers adhere to airline baggage standards, no violations were found during checks. This misguided effort only resulted in publicly humiliating Swissair customers. Boarding process was pure pandemonium...this was the first time in recent memory, where all coach passengers were invited to board at the same time! Very inefficient! Crowded seating in coach,with ten passengers sandwiched in across Boeing 767 aircraft. Competing airlines flying identical aircraft have nine across seatings Thin seat cushions cause leg cramps after a few hours."
Pros: "The service and THE FOOD WERE GOOD !"
Pros: "All good, just perfect and friendly crew. Great aircraft (B777)"
Pros: "I loved the aircraft, the courtesy, professionalism and friendliness of the cre, the communications from the pilot. The food was very good and tasty which is a great challenge in overseas flights, the choices of drinks. We will definitely travel again on SWISS, this time for a visit to the Alps hiking trails"
Cons: "I can’t think of anything I did not like at all"
Cons: "No leg room very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nice self boarding"
Cons: "No big screen to communicate priority to boarding since I am deaf."
Cons: "К сажалению,мне испортили отпуск. Был утеряны мой багаж. Я вынуждена 3 день ходить по магазинам и тратить свое время на отдых,покупая необходимые вещи,те, что необходимо для отдыха. Я потеряла три дня отдыха. И до сих пор я дожидаясь , сижу в квартире и не знаю когда он прибудет. Я крайне не довольна To the planting, I was spoiled vacation. My luggage was lost. I have to go shopping for 3 days and spend my time on vacation, buying the necessary things, those that are necessary for recreation. I lost three days of rest. And so far I'm waiting, sitting in the apartment and I do not know when he will arrive. I am extremely unhappy"
Cons: "Almost missed my third plane, too."
Cons: "I chose my seat online and when I got to the gate they changed my seat to the way back of the plane"

Cons: "Seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "Les hôtesses ont été super gentilles. Merci!!!"
Cons: "L’espace entre les sièges est très réduit"
Pros: "Great crew and flight."
Cons: "Boarding procedure was rather chaotic. After first class, rather than board by groups or rows, it was everyone else. Flights are fully booked and overhead bin space is tight if you board at end."
Pros: "The food wasn’t bad"
Cons: "Business seats suck"
Pros: "Staff and flight was really great. Everything went smoothly and on schedule. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The seating was almost unbearable. So small and cramped. Arm rest didn’t go all the way up so very hard to cuddle with my seat mate (my daughter). I couldn’t even put my arms by my side without pushing my seat neighbors off. Seat in front of me was in my lap. Hard to get out of seat to use restroom. Way to tight. Long flight from Boston to Zurich was so hard to bear. I understand making money...but this is ridiculous!!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Paying for WiFi."
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: "It was nice because plane was half empty so had quicker attention from stewards - everything was good."
Pros: "I was late ( I had to drive 230 Km ) and I managed to call in advance the company that was doing the check-in on behalf of SWISS - I asked them the Check-in time closing time and by almost flying ( speeding like crazy ) I arrived before that moment."
Cons: "I did not check the terms and conditions of the ticket. I am a Star Alliance Gold member and I was expecting SWISS to have a similar booking system like the others I fly with. I found out that the ticket fare did not contain checked luggage ( so I had to pay a hefty fee for it ) and also my 20" wheeled case that was ok in all the other flights I took it with me, this time was oversized and overweight . My wife took out the 2 laptops so it became within weight limits but still oversized - My wife paid for the fee ( I wasn't there at the time and she is not a such experienced flyier as I am ) . When I found out about the fee, I checked their rules and I found out that the hand luggage is allowed to be 22" . I saw in the airplane a lot of people with cases having the same size as mine, that went as checked luggage at a cost fo around 40 . I want to see how can I get my money back . . ."
Pros: "Just like everything else the Swiss do, our Swiss air flight was like a well oiled machine. Very friendly crew, very good meals, lots of creatures comforts; blankets, pillows, headphones, warm washcloths in the morning. Great overall experience."
Cons: "The seat room is every bit as tight as any other airline, so if you're tall, and flying an overnight, upgrading to a seat with leg room might be worth the extra cost. Select your roomy seat early - they go fast!"
Pros: "Was a very quick flight."
Cons: "My seat did not recline and my tv did not work"
Cons: "We did not receive the baby pram after landing. Needed to pick it up at the baggage claim."
Pros: "The flight had a delay but managed to (partially) make up for it."
Cons: "Boarding was a little slow. Perhaps it would be nice to more explicitly explain to people how to more quickly stow their luggage and then sit down in order to let other people through. The seats felt a little more cramped than usual."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "The tram ride to the plane"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight overall. Made a long flight seem not so bad."
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."
Cons: "Hi, my flight was delayed for more then 20 minutes and I had next connection flight in short period of time. Even that they now that I will lose next connection they didn't wanted to change my flight to previous flight and they DID had extra seat in a plane."
Pros: "The food,crew and flight were flawless. Our flight scheduling had us connecting within a thirty minute period in zurich and we had to run to catch the flight. Probably would have missed the connection if our 26 year old son didn't run ahead. Too much drama and no one from swiss air to help. Suggest more time for transfer in the future or someone to guide passengers. We were nit the only ones. However, we did make it as did the others ( luggage too!)so kudos to swiss for waiting"
Cons: "I missed a collecting flight due to weather and the airline refused to rebook my flight."

Pros: "The Airplane was good and the crew was very helpful."
Cons: "The route from Bucharest to Istanbul could be shorter and the way from the airplane to the airport could be through the jetway not through the uncomfortable buses."
Pros: "The crew did their best. The company, the policies, the times ... a different story."
Cons: "Stop boarding pets on a transatlantic 11.5 hours long flight - if the owners are nuts (although they swear they love their pets) air companies must be more responsible. The first air company that will refuse to cabin board pets will be my only company to fly for the rest of my life. Sometimes, saying NO is the right answer."
Pros: "Very professional !"
Cons: "The first coffee given at the beginning of the journey,was very good,(which is in general unusual during the flights), but the one given at the end of the trip was bad."

Pros: "The staff the staff the staff. They made the trip so enjoyable. The A330-300 aircraft was smooth and silent. Very impressed"
Cons: "The seats in business class were not as soft as they could be but very impressed overall and good value for the cost of the business class ticket"

Pros: "Service, food, staff—all excellent!"
Cons: "The cabins on both flights were too warm."
Pros: "The seats reclining not only the back. The food very tasty."
Cons: "I think finding a way to empower the crew to explain to passangers who took the extra seats ( some up to 5 per person) the entire 12 hours, that they must switch at some point if asked. There weren’t willing to do it on their own( being civil is a learned skill) and refused to allow someone else to take a nep on the extra seats as if they had paid for it."

Cons: "Lost the bag and will return it . Still discussing with them after five days. Promising to deliver each day but then not doing it. Miserable experience and do not recommend using this airline."
Cons: "Try to improve the departing time, this flight from Mazar usually departs late."
Pros: "The rear exit of the plane. The cabin crew were very attentive, almost too much. I brought my cat and she didn't get to sleep much. I appreciate that the attendants wanted to visit with her and give her their attention but it kept her from sleeping and woke me up. Since she had no proper place to use the bathroom she needed to be sleeping to keep her body clock in order."
Cons: "HOT AIRPORT AND PLANE...no overhead fan on the plane to cool off. Food not very tasty. My seat was switched after it was reserved to accommodate another passenger without my knowledge. The reason was not a valid one."
Pros: "Outstanding service Excellent food Adequate entertainment Seat recline was good for economy"
Cons: "For a long flight (8+ hours) legroom on this Airbus was quite cramped Again poor boarding announcements resulted in very chaotic boarding process"
Cons: "leaving late"

Pros: "I eventually arrived at the destination."
Cons: "Difficult to communicate with cabin crew due to lack of English. Flight was delayed by 1 hour. General atmosphere on plane was chaotic I think due to the small plane and length of flight as large numbers of people needed to use toilets."
Cons: "I was at the gate for my flight from Istanbul to Bucharest but 25 minutes before departure I noticed that passengers were lining up at a different gate so I asked what happened. I was told the flight had departed even though it was still 25 minutes before flight time. I then had to go to ticket sales where they charged me $425 dollars for the 80 minute flight to Bucharest. In the US, I would have been put on the next available flight fee of charge. I will never fly Turkish Airlines again."
Pros: "Not trying to be flattering here but it really is a good airline."
Cons: "Nothing :D"
Pros: "The food was amazing."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "We were in the plane over Istanbul airport for more than half an hour because we did not have the permission to land. That put a lot a pressure on us because we had less than 20 minutes to catch our connecting flight to US."
Pros: "The variety of films on show was decent"
Cons: "The crew skipped our aisle whilst delivering the toiletry bags, some announcements were made purely in Turkish without regard to English passengers. The boarding gate from Istanbul was opened much later than the advertised times."
Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "On the San Francisco to Istanbul flight the food was a bit greasy. Otherwise good service from crew and company."
Pros: "Love the entertainment choices, behind able to watch while seasons of TV shows, new movies. Makes the time pass easily."
Cons: "When you are doing a long flight, you don't want fruit to be the only choice for dessert. It's hard enough being gluten free but to find that nearly every airline just thinks that fruit is acceptable is disappointing. They did provide a gluten free bread roll rather than the usual rice cakes but on two recent legs, didn't heat it. When I told the flight crew the second time that it is inedible when not heated, he was great and said he would do that. And it is nice to eat grilled vegetables which are delicious but sometimes particularly on a long flight, a bit more variety is needed. Turkish Airlines is excellent but fixing this would make it great."
Pros: "excellent food, service"
Pros: "The service and entertainment!"
Pros: "My seat was comfortable, the food and drink were good. In flight entertainment options were plentiful and satisfactory."
Cons: "Boarding started on time, but took far longer than necessary. Plane took off an hour after schedule which caused us to have to sprint through the Istanbul airport to meet our connector. And once we arrived in final destination, our baggage never made it onto the connecting flight.."
Pros: "The food and the boarding was fast."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "It was nice to receive a meal on such a short flight."
Cons: "We landed into Ataturk airport while a coup was going on! And no one from Turkish Airlines was anywhere to be found for the next 16 hours."
Pros: "Crew is very flexible and accomodating to individual needs Food is good compared to other airlines Entertainment is programme is good"

Cons: "More choices for food seats not comfortable too narrow no space"
Pros: "We had a Lufthansa pilot sitting with us on his was back to Frankfurt. He was definitely good company and taught us a lot about how the airline worked, his family's history working with airlines, and life stories. The flight definitely went fast thanks to Daniel!"
Cons: "I was sick so couldn’t fly, spoke to customer care and they refused to let me change my flight"
Pros: "The crew was o.k."
Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Pros: "Tv screens, free beverages, frequent service"
Cons: "The single most cramped and uncomfortable flying experience of my life. The chair in front of me recliner lined to 4 inches in front of my nose. Couldn’t move legs or arms for 10 hours because it was so tightly packed. I couldn’t believe it was legal to fit that many people that closely together."
Cons: "The boarding gate has too little space and was chaos."
Pros: "The food and drink were the only two enjoyable moments of this flight."
Cons: "The crew in Cluj airport could not care less about getting the plane boarded and departed on time. For 20 minutes crew stood around in the airport talking to each other and using their cellphones. Finally the transport bus was loaded only to have the bus driver get out, and talk to another employee while simultaneously using his phone. No information was given for the delay and the plane was boarded at time of departure. This careless and unbothered attitude resulted in a missed connecting flight for my partner and I. We were completely unassisted by crew on the plane and ended up having to wait 24hours for our next flight home. Absolutely disgusted by the service provided from Cluj to Munich. I would seriously consider another airline before booking again with Lufthansa for this route."
Cons: "So bad"

Pros: "If you want to improve you need more staff to service massive numbers of travellers."
Cons: "Most of it okay except add more toilets or arrange a proper way to deal with large numbers of travellers"
Cons: "Leg space"
Pros: "Premium Economy is awesome! Bigger seats with more leg room than I need (I'm just over 6 feet tall), leg rest (oh yeah) and a travel kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks and travel sleep mask. The crew was very good-hospitable and accommodating."
Cons: "Security at Frankfurt is terrible!!! They open every other bag despite scanning with X-Rays!! Took me 50 minutes to get through security and to my next gate."
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"
Cons: "It would really be nice as a paying HON/SEN and business ticket passenger to get priority boarding. As nowadays seemingly everybody has priority boarding, this offer does not make sense anymore."
Pros: "great flight attendants, decent food, on-time arrival. all good."
Pros: "Only slight turbulence. Flight was only 10 minutes late."
Cons: "The choice of games and movies. Space too cramped, and I am only 5' tall!!!"

Pros: "Our stewardess from Toronto to Germany was the best that I have ever had."
Cons: "Great trip."
Pros: "Overall, was good!"
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."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "On May 16, 2017, there was a group of Albanian and American passengers rushing through Frankfurt Airport to catch the connecting flight to New York. Their first flight (LH#1425) from Tirana to Frankfurt was 45 minutes late causing them to eventually miss their connecting flight. At this point, the passengers were asked to show their passports, separating the US citizens from the rest. All the US citizens were loaded on a bus and provided hotel, dinner and breakfast. The Albanian citizens were moved to the lower level of the airport where they were left to freeze all night. Some of the passengers were elderly and had their heart or high blood pressure medications in their luggage that they didn’t have access to. One US-Albanian citizen was asked to separate from his Green-Card holder wife in order to receive the US citizen treatment…"

Pros: "Plane was clean and service was great."
Pros: "Comfort able seats and good entertainment"
Cons: "My wife is 8th month pregnant I felt that the airline should had made accommodations for my wife and unborned child."

Pros: "The service was incredible! We had wonderful flight attendants. Also, the food was great."
Cons: "It was delayed by 9.5 hours!!!!!"
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: "Everything on the plane seems clean and well maintained - nothing is broken, worn or soiled. Lufthansa spends a little more effort than other airlines to cut down on waste when it comes to their in-flight food service (real silverware and reuseable dishes). The Munich airport is by far more convenient than Frankfurt when making connections in Germany."
Cons: "I was a bit disappointed with the limited seat availability/choices. If you cannot check in online several hours ahead of the departure you are typically left with center/middle seats in the area of the plane."
Cons: "It took over three hours for them to unload our baggage. Completely unacceptable. Terrible coordination and planning with the Dulles baggage handlers."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, staff was kind and helpful."
Pros: "I appreciate the taxi, in Munich airport, to my next connection."
Cons: "I disliked the late departure."
Pros: "Overall good flt crew.....and service. Good food & selection. Clean airy plane"
Pros: "The food and the entertainment were excellent, staff also worked very well, and the airplane appeared well cleaned and maintained"
Cons: "The economy seats are too close to each other to be comfortable for extended periods of time (back to front ways - side space is reasonable)."
Pros: "Flight more or less on time - efficient"
Cons: "Baggage handlers on strike - airport chaotic - Swissport did poor job communicating waht was going on. One bag eventually arrived - took 3 hours second bag did not arrive and apparently did not get transferred in Frankfurt Told they would deliver bag - next day and would text and call - called at 4am !!! I just had come off 20hrs of travel. Phone on mute. No e mail. Now they say will deliver this evening - but no time slot so another wasted vacation day waiting for them to get their act together. Why can't they call/text me with a 30 minute window."
Pros: "fllight attandants were very pleasant"
Pros: "Service/ flight/ comfort/ food"
