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: "Comfortable seat Hostesses were professional and very service oriented - not forgetting your request. Service with a smile Very sooth flight"
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
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: "Everyone was super friendly. I enjoyed that the plane was empty that we could all change our seats to be more comfortable."
Cons: "The walking to board my connecting flight was overwhelming, a lot of walking. Also, I understand the food isn't from a 5 star restaurant but the lamb I ate was over cooked and felt very rubbery. As the crew members went around aking if you want Tea or Coffee, I said I wanted coffee. The coffee was cold so I couldn't even drink it, i know I can ask for another one but I felt so disappointed that I'd rather have nothing. My monitor had lots of weird lines on them as the colors were so off on some areas and good on other areas."
Cons: "the baby crying next to us crying thrugh much of the flight. We're still exhausted from not being able to sleep well during the flight."
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system though headphones could be better"
Cons: "Dinner served at very odd time --- middle of the night! Some crew quite surly but some very nice"
Cons: "Luggage didn't make the transfer in Dubai. Arrived 2 days later."
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: "I did not like the vegetarian food that was offered"
Cons: "Having to go through twice as arrived in terminal C and departed terminal A What a waste of time"
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."

Cons: "Prompt departure; better food/snacks."
Cons: "Mine crew 2 ladies"
Cons: "Confortable seats"
Pros: "Food was good and crew were helpful."
Cons: "Seat could have been comfier!"
Pros: "Nothing at all, whole experience was incredibly stressful"
Cons: "The transfer was awful. Long line for the frankly bizarre security check despite never leaving the terminal, incredibly rude staff at Frankfurt airport, all wearing may we help badges, so kind of answered their own question. Check in staff once we had sprinted th length of the terminal very rude"
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Boarding crew in EWR insisted that my small carry on had to be checked in. MANY passengers were able to bring on board luggage that was larger and clearly heavier. I don’t understand why I was one of the exceedingly few passengers pulled out of the queue to have luggage checked in. Food was sad."
Pros: "very on time (before time actually), great crew - professional but also very friendly and you could see they liked their journey that day."
Cons: "for that flight really nothing - great."

Cons: "No complaints. Good vegan food."
Pros: "Nothing to say anything flight has been cancelled two time. My all commitment collapsed. Finally took train. Very worst service."
Cons: "Flight shouldn't cancel at any cause even one passenger booked air ticket. Otherwise have to inform one day earlier. Lufthansa air service is very worst."
Pros: "Nice crew. Smooth and quick ride which is perfect. No entertainment system or food so cannot comment."
Cons: "Worst airport to board from (Tegel). Waited 30 minutes for luggage in frankfurt airport. Unacceptable luggage handling (may related to airport in Frankfurt)."
Pros: "Excelent service"
Cons: "I liked all"
Cons: "There was not enough room for all the people’s cabin size luggage. They allowed people to get on board with big coats once they’re in the plain they take off the coats and place them up. Those coats take the same space as a small suitcase. I asked the fly attendants for assistance and they didn’t even pretend to care about the situation. I had to put my luggage under the seat for the entire flight, which ended up reducing the very reduced legroom. What this airline is trying to do is; to charge passengers twice for cabin size luggage. This has been my worst experiences with airlines. Lufthansa is definitely an airline to avoid."
Pros: "great over all experiance. Don't let the other negative reviews put you off"
Pros: "Quick flight. O ly 2 people per row. Bags did not get lost"
Cons: "Walking to different concourse. Then walk down to bus and ride 10 mins to plane and wait to get on. First come first seated."

Cons: "Just typically being on a plane not much can do about the space in economy"
Pros: "Service was excellent. Amenities excellent. Food good. Entertainment system very good!"
Cons: "In business class the room for feet was too narrow. One of our seats had the metal framing in middle of my back bothersome."
Pros: "Exelent crew"
Cons: "Distance too far between gates for transfer"
Pros: "Good cabin crew service."
Cons: "Taking connecting flight is an ordeal. Flights leaving from Frankfurt to Pune had to be through an escalator and by bus to climbing airplane stairs. Very tedious and tiring. Also the seats in economy class in Private Air plane recline too much. It was hard to get out of seat if the front seat is recliner."
Pros: "They’re very polite persons"
Cons: "The way they treat people"
Cons: "Water was spilled on me by flight attendant. Luggage was left in Frankfort. Did not have clothes or medications, or daily necessities. Must wait 1 1/2 days to get luggage"
Pros: "overall good flight"
Cons: "5 hours delay in take off from frankfurt. reason - ice on plane wings. snow in frankfurt is not uncommon, and lufthansa needs 5 hours to clear ice? and why board people in the plane when you know you can't fly ?"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Plane loaded late then waited on the tarmac, arrived an hour later than scheduled time. This has happened to me on every one of the ten Lufthansa flights I have been on. Apparently they don't know what it is to be on-time."
Pros: "The service and food was great."
Cons: "The bathrooms were pretty disgusting, with urine on the floor. Perhaps they could be checked on and cleaned."
Pros: "Crew worked very hard to accommodate us."
Cons: "Was seated in a section with many noisy infants. I could not sleep or even hear the entertainment system sometimes. Not the airline's fault. People should know better than to travel with infants. I felt sorry for the crew."
Cons: "I was charged for my bags which it said on line bags were free . Seats didn't recline . We were charged for refreshments. This airline had nothing that I should write about ."
Cons: "The on board entertainment sucks you need to upgrade"
Pros: "The professionalism and warmth of the staff, the food, the wet towels before a meal. We appreciated the constant supply of beverages to keep us hydrated."
Cons: "The disjointed announcements which kept disrupting the movie we were watching. It would be helpful to have one single announcement instead of breaking it up into several smaller units. We had a serious issue with a passenger in front of us who kept jamming his seat back into our knees. The flight staff did a great job of trying to resolve the issue. But the bottom line is that the seats are way too close together for such a long flight."
Pros: "Service was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "To italy united by Lufthansa had great Netflix shows, movies and better interface. This flight to Chicago was Germany based, so I understand the international choices, but there was very little to watch in the movie, tv and show categories. Otherwise all great!"
Cons: "No entertainment during the whole flight at all."
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 enough water was offered by flight attendants Wasn't offered an after dinner drink One of the flight attendant wasn't very pleasant"
Cons: "Not a thing"

Pros: "Smooth flight, good service"
Cons: "Leg room."
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."
Cons: "It took over three hours for them to unload our baggage. Completely unacceptable. Terrible coordination and planning with the Dulles baggage handlers."
"Better food please"
"Delayed 1 h 40 mins"
Cons: "I want real Foodservice for the prices that we pay. Don't give me the covid-19 excuse"
Pros: "Organized boarding"
Cons: "Headrest lcd didnt worked for entertainment Couldnt stretch my legs cause they told me to put the back pack on the floor instead of overhead compartment"

Cons: "Comfort is in the past... seats are uncomfortable. No space. we are always crammed in like sardines. Seats were in poor condition and did not appear clean. Video equipment at my seat did not work. Did not seem to have enough crew. . . took forever to get the limited service - - crew seemed complacent - no enjoyment in their jobs - doing what they always do. Having enjoyed five years with Delta - I enjoyed my job and the people. No one seems to like their job now. Shame. Takes even more fun out of flying these days. It's a job - more people - more coffee - more sodas.... Don't LIKE it. . . give someone else the chance to fill that position. Flying Should be Fun. . . it's special!! every time."
Pros: "He crew. They were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "The delay and the plane was old"

Cons: "The flight attendant was arrogant. This is her job... just for $$$"
Pros: "The Crew was nice ."
Cons: "They displayed for three hours something on TV, but the entire plane had no sound. When asked the crew will tell you to listen on channel 13 or 14. I told them there was no sound. I was sitting in First Class and went to check with a friend that was way back in Economy, same thing. So i told the that to the crewmember who just told me, sorry nothing I can do about. Which I can understand. What I don't understand is why they continued displaying a mute TV set for three hours. Why not just shut it off? BTW, my daughter flew from LA to Boston that same day and exactly the same thing happened on her plane."
Cons: "Had 2 plane tickets to Puerto Rico for my mom funeral But all the sudden my dad passed away one week before the date Iso a have to change the date They did charge me $200 and the other ticket was for my friend was my support he couldn't go cause he's job So I call and they said yes that they gonna help me with the refund all I need is a dead certificate so I send it the papers by email Now they telling me that they can't gave me the refund All my brothers and sisters didn't have no problem with South west air line and other airlines they understood the problem And they did everything without problems Worst service ever Not flying with them ever again"
Pros: "Quick boarding and on time departure"
Cons: "I traveled with this carry on for numerous flights and for the last three legs of this trip w/of having to check it. For some reason they made me check it. because I had to spend time at the baggage claim carousels I almost missed the last train of the night back home. Fortunately all is fine, but it caused unnecessary stress."

Delays happen, i understand; however this delay impacted me catching my next connecting flight. There were no attendant at the designated gates to help me in Puerto Rico and calling directly was a nightmare. Never made it to Miami or to lax. Instead I was put on an even longer flight, San Juan to Philadelphia."
Pros: "My experience with American Airlines was horrible I was on flight 1357 and me and my husband started boarding the plane my husband stopped so put the bag in his seat the flight attendant Sonya #695655 taliago Portuguese was very nasty rude and disrespectful and came off very racist she told my husband to sit down and move out the house as he was placed in his bag on top of his seat then when my husband told her he was placing his bag up over the seats she asked to see his pass his boarding pass then he told her he just wanted to put his bag up over the other seat because there was no more bathroom over his seat she argue with my husband after my husband left the situation alone she then comes in with another flight attendant who was more Ruder than her it was a 20-minute delay with the both of them yelling at us and threatening to kick us off the plane then didn't offer us any drinks or snacks she kept giving my huaband nasty looks the whole 4hours she was very racist and I would never take American Airlines again experience was horrible"

Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Pros: "I likeKayak is always with me and informing everything."
Cons: "No snack, one cup of beverage and no movies without paying."
Pros: "United provided excellent service for my return from Puerto Rico to the mainland. Unlike other carriers, United quickly adapted to the reality on the ground and adjusted their schedules accordingly.

Another night and just a couple of 10 vouchers. She never received an explanation or recompense for loosing part of her trip in the san juan airport.

Cons: "Our flight was late leaving and for some reason when I checked in on my phone it said I needed to see an agent for my seat assignment"
Pros: "Trip OK."
Cons: "If you need to cancel a flight wit Air Canada or Southwest you will have one year to use the cost of your flight as a credit. You must to be completely sure to fly with United. If you have to cancel, NO refund will be made. I try to change my flight to Canada and they impose a PENALTY of $200 per passenger!! (almost the price of each ticket). So, avoid United, unless you have no other choice."
Cons: "I have never flown United before. This being mg first time attempting to, has lead me to believe that I will never choose united airlines. After boarding my early morning flight from San Juan to Houston, all passangers were seated we were at a stand still for 2hrs before being instructed to depart the plane. We were sent back to the service desk for rerouting. This line was also an hour and 1/2 long . Fortunately I was able to transfer to another airline, but this overral experience with United was horrible."
Pros: "On-time boarding."
Cons: "Entertainment system very inconsistent and most of the time not working. If the airline removes the TV displays expecting customers to use their own devices, they need to ensure the wifi is working. The flight attendants said they could fix the wifi issue. That isn't acceptable, somebody should be able to address this in the plane."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work"
Pros: "Great experience"
Cons: "Excelent service from kayak and the airline"

Cons: "Could not find pricing for movie selection without first swiping my card"
Pros: "We arrived almost half and hour before ETA That was amazing. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Complimentary snacks and drinks were a joke At that time in the morning mini cookie and a mini glass of soda (not even the whole can? ) i think the airline can do way better than that."
