Airline reviews

Cons: "No gate for departure or arrival. No business class longe in Cape Town."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class. I’m traveling the globe over the next year and thought let me try Qatar but never again with this type of service and how they treat their customers."

Pros: "Attentive and efficient"

Pros: "Entertainment and food is always great with Qatar!"
Cons: "After I got in my seat an Islamic lady came and said that I was in her seat. I looked at her ticket and while it was the right seat number, she was on the wrong flight. I got a stewardess to help her. She had gone through 3 boarding pass checks and was still on the wrong flight. They let her fly!"

Cons: "Food was terrible. Except for the dessert which was good."

Pros: "Staff was nice and polite and helpful to me. The plane is pretty much on time or little delay. The boarding is early but I guess it helps with getting everyone on board and be on time."
Cons: "There are 2-3 choices per meal for us to choose on the menu but some of the choice already gone by the time they serve us. I feel like menu is useless if we were forced to eat what have left."

Pros: "The plane was new and spotless, the crew did everything possible to make the flight great. Food service, and Wine and Cocktails were always served with a smiling face and it made you think of flying many years ago. Service cleanliness of the restrooms and staff were top notch"
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Service"

Pros: "Crew was good! Food was good! Boarding was on time !"
Cons: "Economy comfort could be better."

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: "Extra leg room only coz I was on exit isle"
Cons: "Entertainment is poor. Very few selections on black movies and music. Mostly Arabic and Indians. Food was alright"

Pros: "Staff, service,"
Cons: "Legroom, seat comfort, very long flight"

Pros: "Great"

Pros: "I had a family emergency and couldn’t go. I wasn’t allowed to switch my flight or change it. Lots of money spent with nothing in return. Unfortunte."

Pros: "Museum of Islamic Art,"
Cons: "No"

Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "There was a person name Manzoor at Lahore airport working with Qatar Airways ticketing he was asking me to pay him $50 to help me get boarding pass. i will also contact Qatar Airways about this incident if this issue is not going to forward to the airline please let me know."

Cons: "Legroom"

Pros: "price, comfort, food"

Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to kisumu"

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "As above"

Pros: "everything went smoothly, no delays, boarding was easy and quick"

Cons: "Boarding at JFK very disorganized. Poor system. No vetting of wheel chair users many fakers."

Pros: "It was really good, crew helped a lot me n my baby, it was not difficult to travel alone with my baby"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "Some crews are not accommodating."

Pros: "Friendly staff. Good food."
Cons: "Unlike my flight from US to Qatar, this flight was outdated and their video streaming touch device was old."

Pros: "Staff very friendly. Loved the adjustable headrest as I am shorter and this is the first time flying that my neck was so comfortable I didn't need my travel pillow! Food was excellent!"
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."
Cons: "Not having available air for the center seats made our flight a truly awful experience. The older style seats are actually more comfortable for taller and larger people. My wife was virtually ignored by the male crew on her side of the aircraft."

Pros: "The flight left without me! Nobody called my name or came to find me while I was in the lounge!"
Cons: "The flight left without me! Nobody called my name or came to find me while I was in the lounge!"

Cons: "It was all good"

Pros: "The crew were all lovely + meals were excellent."

Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."

Cons: "I checked in a couple of hours after checkin open but unfortunately I could not get my preferred window seat, got a middle instead. But still the leg room would have been ok but the middle seat (second row behind the bilkhead row) had the front passenger's entertainment system arranged across the footwell, not sideways, so it completely blocked the footwell and prevented any stretching of the legs. I am a tall passenger and this caused much discomfort on the flight, I had to keep getting up to walk around. I also found the seat bottom quite uncomfortable (not enough padding I think), butnghis could have been made worse by the footwell issue. Regards Neil"

Cons: "No upgrades. Worst flight."

Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was late boarding everyone on time. It was delayed 1.5 hrs. The entertainment system had its fault, as it was difficult to navigate between screens. The seats were uncomfortable and not enough room for such a long flight. The kids were extremely uncomfortable on this flight, as many were crying throughout the journey."

Cons: "They cancelled the booking without telling about that And also they didn't prepare a place for staying The desk manager said the booking cancelled by your company"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "The crew and the airline was a great experience."
Cons: "I wish there was more leg space between the seats."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Way to crowed and...you know how u see the clown car in a circus...this was a clown plane...seats are horrible just all together a frustrating flight..."

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight left on time!!!!!! :)"
Cons: "Food was served too late. Unable to get a bottle of water as I was dehydrated."

Pros: "Top notch service by Qatar airline. They accommodated us. We don't eat beef or chicken and didn't know you could request vegetarian online before flight. They found a fish meal and informed us to apply for meal online."
Cons: "Seats too close. Person in front was in our lap almost."

Cons: "Too late."

Cons: "Very cramped space on a 14 hr flight. Very slow food & drink service. Toilets were dirty No opportunity to choose seats despite checking in online the day before - we were allocated 2 adjacent seats but there were none others shown as available on the entire aircraft."

Pros: "The staff was amazing! I started I get a headache- probably because of low blood sugar, and one of the attendant provided me with constant water, ginger ale, and chocolates. It was so sweet- she didn't have to make sure I was okay, but she chose to our the kindness of her heart!"
Cons: "The cramped quarters. I had a very tall person sit practically on my lap the entire flight, as he leaned his chair back the entire time. It left no room for me to use the table for my laptop. I was fortunate that no one sat next to me on my first flight, but for the second one I was not so lucky – so I couldn't work on my schoolwork."

Pros: "Qatar Airways is a nice airline and it's obvious they work on making your flight a pleasant experience with a lot of food, entertainment, etc"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 hours upon initially arriving to the airport. While it was important for me to be there when I found out this information because I needed to reschedule my connecting flightso due to the delay, this should not be required. Qatar Airways, knew the flight was going to be delayed at least 10 hours before they announced it. They should have already began the process of rescheduling connecting flights and figuring out problems before passengers arrive to the airport. I probably spent 45 minutes at the ticket counter working things out."

Cons: "They didnt let me sit with my family and my seats were changed twice after i was checked in without notifying me. I have anxiety issues and it was really hard"

Cons: "."

Pros: "Not one thing about my experience."
Cons: "The alertness of the staff, the boarding process, the knowledge of the staff. Not breaking my luggage!"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "More or less on time"
Cons: "Outdated aircraft. Flight took longer than usual."

Pros: "Staff was very friendly and loved the food."
Cons: "For economy class, nothing."

Cons: "Boarding was late and line was very lonf"

Cons: "You could have had my luggage arrive. Now I don’t know where it is"

Cons: "seat comfort"

Pros: "Lots of room on the flight, fresh warm bread, lots of water, nice cabin crew"
Cons: "How do I book a vegetarian meal??"

Cons: "We had a huge delay"

Pros: "Food / movies"
Cons: "Comfort/ staff"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and polite."
Cons: "The plane was small, it rattled and shook a lot and the size of the seats is ridiculous. The bathrooms did not have warm water and the sense of comfort is to be found only in business and first class. We fly to Zurich a lot because we have family there and we always take SWISS for a direct flight. They have old planes, the little TVs by the seats may or may not work and although the crew is nice and well trained, they cannot substitute for the discomfort of 10 hours flights in a crammed place. Sorry SWISS."

Cons: "Seats are too cramped for an international flight."

Pros: "crew are well trained"
Cons: "chicken dinner was not tasty at all"

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "The flight itself was pleasant. But a 3 hour delay, because of technical issues on the incoming flight from Geneva? Why didn’t they send another aircraft?"

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"

Pros: "Everyone was so nice!"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Cons: "They canceled the flight and took me to another company with a stop in Turkey,it was a really bad and uncomfortable flight And I’m really disappointed!!!!!"

Cons: "Worst travel experience ever and I’ve traveled the world. Red eye flight delayed for 3 hours. Missed connection flight with not a lot of options. Waited for another 3 hours to get rebooked and have to stay at Zurich overnight and only to find our checked luggage is no where to be seen. First and LAST time we fly Swiss Air!!!"

Pros: "The food was quite good and the crew was perfectly friendly. The entertainment choices were useful on such a long flight."
Cons: "It was extremely warm on the flight; consequently, I was unable to sleep. This was my second overly warm Swiss Air flight. After numerous complaints on the first flight, the temperature was lowered, but the second flight remained warm."

Pros: "food was great in economy"
Cons: "the 7 hour transit time"

Pros: "Swiss Air is great."

Pros: "The planes are clean and relatively comfortable."
Cons: "Extremely rigid rules. My flight was the day of the blizzard in Boston, Tues, 3/13. Despite 5 calls to Swiss to reroute me out of Montreal, an airport I could actually get to, they would not relent. I finally just drove there and a really nice agent changed my flight since Logan was closed and all public transport was shut down. Even if my scheduled flight from boston wasn't canceled (I have no idea) they were incredibly unhelpful about the fact that I physically could not get to logan in time for my flight. (Mass DOT was asking everyone to stay off ALL roads). THEN on the way home, they would NOT let me fly back to Montreal where my car was!! WAY TOO RIGID RULES. Screw the customer!"

Cons: "I felt like a sardine."

Pros: "Kindness"

Cons: "I wasn't able to select seat before boarding"

Cons: "I have just had the most unpleasant experience with Swiss Air and feel that anyone on FB should be very careful when dealing with this airline. I am a Gold Member of Star Alliance for more than 20 years and have flown dozens of times on Swiss and would expect courtesy and consideration in return for my loyalty to their airline. Their flight from Hong Kong to Zurich leaves at 00:15. I mistakenly booked this for Nov 9th instead of the intended late evening of the 9th which then turns out to be Nov 10th. When I discovered my error, I called Swiss at least six times to explain my error and ask if my son could stand by for the same flight on the 10th or even apply the amount to rebook the same flight the next day. ZERO flexibility or consideration. Missed flight, lose entire value. Start from scratch. Astonished that an airline that claims to be serving their customers would treat me this way. I travel through Europe at least 6-10 times a year from Asia. I will now route through Frankfurt, Munich, Paris, London, Vienna, Instanbul or even Moscow before ever going through Zurich again. I encourage anyone making travel plans to be very careful when considering flights with Swiss Airlines. Perhaps this treatment of a loyal customer explains why they went through bankruptcy already once."

Pros: "Best food and attention that I've had on an airline in 20 years. Really. I was telling a friend today, Swiss Air started with drinks, gave us a Parisian baguette sandwich, gave us a healthy breakfast of yoghurt warm croissant butter jam orange juice, drinks again, and several passengers surrounding me got special attention, one woman with a baby, a disabled person, and a teenager that was 6'5" was relaocated by the flight attendant without him even asking to a bulkhead seat for more comfort. You don't see this kind a attention to detail on any US flights or US airlines, so I noticed it. It was as if I was traveling back in the 70's or 80's when Airlines would compete for our dollars with their service. I mentioned to my friend that if I had a choice and Swiss Air was one of the choices, I'd choose Swiss Air over any other airline."

Cons: "I bought economy class ticket! (I have a printout ticket as proof!) When I went to the airport i had a VERY UNPLEASANT surprise. I had a 23kg bag. Bording stuart said that my ticket is ECO LIGHT class and I don't have the right to any baggage. Worst thing of all was that the reason of my trip to Paris was my sister's graduation and half of the baggage was my formal wear and other half were presents for my sister! Your lack of transparency ruined one in lifetime special event- MY SISTER'S GRADUATION. I am very glad that you asked me for my opinion because I am using my free time to demand full refund, even tough the damage is much bigger than the cost of the ticket and it's irreplaceable."

Pros: "The flight was smooth; Attendants were nice and everything worked according to schedule"

Pros: "I was concerned the connections would be too tight but it worked out great!"

Pros: "The flight attendants were attentive, food delicious, movie selection great also."
Cons: "I flew from Miami to Zurich, Zurich to France, France to Zurich, and Zurich to Miami within the span of a week and they were all at least 30 minutes late. BUT flight attendants came by with water while we were seated and offered chocolate, which I really liked. It wasn't the worst thing for me, but I can see how it's annoying."

Pros: "Staff & service were super nice & friendly. In this day & age that airline travel is getting really hectic, it was a breath of fresh air to see friendly & dedicated staff who clearly enjoy what they are doing."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"

Pros: "The chocolate"
Cons: "The entertainment system in the main part of the plane was not working luckily I had a good book otherwise I would have been very upset."

Pros: "Nice, clean and modern airplane with great service"

Pros: "Has been 6 days and my luggage is still lost. Doubt I will see it again. It did have a nice luggage tag on it with all the info needed to track me down."

Pros: "Very accommodating"

Cons: "Minimalist breakfast."

Pros: "Getting off the plane after 11 hours of turturous discomfort."
Cons: "I am not unusually large but it is clear that the seats on your planes are completely inadequate for anyone other than a child. There is no possible way for anyone who isn't seriously sedated to sleep or even sit for any extended period of time in what amount to slightly cushioned coffins. I literally spent an hour in the toilet trying to fall asleep because at least in there I had room to extend my legs. At least in there I could actually breathe (the ventilation system is totally inadequate for anyone sitting near the windows and results in horribly stuffy and uncomfortable air.)"

Pros: "I never used Swiss Airline before but my friends told me crews are very professional and clean... She is right!!!Their crews, Foods, and very clean environments.... had a wonderful experiences"

Pros: "Service was excellent and very friendly."
Cons: "The seats are terrible. Narrow, the armrests edgy and only partially movable. A large metal box under the seat takes away 2/3 of the legroom. The entertainment system is outdated, screen has no contrast and can only be viewed at a straight angle, which is impossible as soon as the seat is reclined."

Pros: "The food was good and I enjoyed the Swiss chocolates."
Cons: "The Seats were real cramped and the entertainment system was outdated"

Cons: "see above"

Pros: "Service. The food was good. Entertainment was good."
Cons: "As a person of color I didn't feel that I received the same warm welcome from some of the attendants. For example the expression on their faces were blank when I said hello. I picked up my food tray and gave it to the attendants very politely. She just took it out of my hand. When the passenger next to me did the same she said thank you very politely. He was Caucasian. Some were very friendly and polite."

Pros: "Attentive crew"
Cons: "Long wait for baggage at destination"

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "It was good"

Pros: "This flight left on time and landed safely."
Cons: "Not worse than other international flights. Entertainment system better than Lufthansa or United. This plane used the 2 jack connection for headphones, which prevents one from using own/normal stereo jack headphones. The provided phones are terrible had to be cranked really loud because of the plane noise, it was almost impossible to understand dialogues in movies."

Cons: "Boarding was slightly confusing. Calling groups to board was not so organized"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and made a bad situation as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 3 hours for a issue with the pilot's chair. The movies reset in the middle of the showing."

Cons: "When it was time to board, they just said we'll start with rows 1-15 then 16-30. However, they just let everyone stand in line and go as the line was started. It would be nice if they announced rows 1-15 and then announced the second set of rows so at least everyone knew when to go. It just seemed unnecessarily confusing to me."

Pros: "The skillful pilot landed so perfectly I thought we were still in the air. Perfection!!!"
Cons: "The flight was full and thanks to a rather oblivious person at check in everyone had a ton of luggage. As a result, the rearranging of all belongings delayed us significantly. We landed when I was supposed to be on my connecting flight. Thankfully the other aircraft waited."

Pros: "Entertainment was great!"
Cons: "The check-in was stressful and congested."

Pros: "I only like the hand sanitizer and a mask that gave us"
Cons: "The food they service was bad"

Pros: "It is always better when this flight is operated by wide body aircraft, as was the case with A330 this time"

Pros: "Great service! Food was very good."
Cons: "That boarding. People who were not in line rushed to the front when boarding started."

Cons: "Food is not great and the flight was delayed by an hour"

Pros: "The food was good. The staff very friendly."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Cozy big leather seats in Business Class, excellent breakfast and good service overall. Turkish Airlines continued to amaze me."
Cons: "Boarding by bus - not my favorite way of getting on a plane. Probably not the airlines's fault."

Pros: "Good food great service friendly staff also flight was 30 minutes delay we landed our destination on time they make time on the air. I always flight with Turkish airlines I recommend to any one I"

Pros: "Care from the crew and consideration"

Cons: "Boarding was delaeyd 5 hour's ,Very very bag experience, the trailer baby and car seat i waited more than an hour, together with more people, were not found"

Pros: "flight departed Jhb on time and arrived in Istanbul a few mins earlier than scheduled"
Cons: "1.cabin temperature varied from cold to very warm 2.I asked the cabin crew for a blanket but they forgot about it 3.I ordered a whisky with ice - was given half a tot with 2 small blocks of ice 4.only one person was serving drinks and food on my aisle so it was very slow service (other aisle had 2 crew serving)"

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Nothing! It’s no comfortable at all!"

Pros: "On title"

Pros: "This Airline is one of my favourite."
Cons: "Good service and decent planes.Hardly any delays."

Pros: "The food is ok as is the entertainment on board."
Cons: "The crew could be nicer and more responsive"

Pros: "No complaints about the plane, staff etc and its probably no worse than any other airline"
Cons: "Long overnight flight in Economy Class, little legroom. As I am larger than average and find it hard to sleep on flights, the cramped conditions were extremely uncomfortable"

Pros: "Pilot was operating nicely, temperature was acceptable,"
Cons: "Cabin crews should pay more attention to elder people,"

Pros: "every think"

Pros: "I'm 6 ft 2. Legspace was adequate, and no silly boxes under the seats like other airlines that obstruct your feet. Great entertainment systems - modern, good selection. Food and staff excellent."
Cons: "Their online checkin systems could operate a bit more smoothly. At one point, I had to go in in person, because the online checkin site had an already past flight from their codeshare partner SAS showing up as the next flight, and I couldn't perform online checkin as a result."

Cons: "It was nice"

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "I didn’t eat or used entertainment so no opinion on that"

Pros: "Smooth and easy, pleasant staff and service flight."

Pros: "Good trip great service"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Horrible seats, earphones hit or miss, cabin littered throughout, staff didn’t clean up from time to time, nor check that seats were up/belts fastened."

Cons: "No room"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The issue of excess baggage. Would appreciate to buy on line before my flight so that I know how much to carry and also that I am covered before leaving home. Payment at the airport may be too costly as well as unreasonable. It's like a penalty for having excess luggage. This is the reason I prefer flying with EMIRATES because they afford me to but pay fir excess luggage before my departure. Planning ahead is key"

Pros: "Excellent food"
Cons: "Long wait for toilet"

Pros: "The flight was quite comfortable. We lucked out with only a partially filled flight leaving extra space to sleep. Service was friendly and the food was excellent! I was fed twice on my 9hour flight and once on my 4hour flight. Great in flight entertainment."
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "Love the food and confort"
Cons: "Never got window, i lost a connection because the delay in NY and i had to wait an entire day, lost one day of my vacations"

Cons: "The crew was very professional and helpful"

Cons: "More than 90 min delay in the flight from NYC to Istanbul. Caused us to get late to the next flight. The replacement we got was after more than 6 waiting hours although earlier flights took off to the same destinatiob."

Pros: "Food and Crew"
Cons: "The fact that the boarding was by bus and not through a sleeve detracts from the process."

Cons: "the kosher food was poor"

Pros: "The flight attendants were lovely, they worked smoothly and did their best to manage an unpleasant situation. The facilities are also excellent, and as always, the fresh flowers and hand lotion and such in the toilets was a nice touch."
Cons: "The food was not up to standard this flight, mostly passable, but our pasta inexplicably tasted chlorinated, as if the noodles had ben boiled in pool water. It's a mild complaint, though. Plane food isn't always sterling. The true problem, unfortunately, was in the form of other passengers. Despite having an excess of available space to stretch out, our seats were surrounded by utterly out-of-control children. Crying babies is understandable, it can't be helped, but if your children are running up and down the aisles [including during the landing], sitting on other passengers [myself in particular], and lying down in the aisle to sleep [and the flight attendant had to ask multiple people whose child that one was because no one wanted to own up, apparently] they have no business being on a plane. I don't even care about the annoyance at this point, their behaviour was inherently unsafe and the parents just didn't care."

Pros: "Food is excellent, staff great."
Cons: "Not nearly enough leg room for an international flight!!"

Pros: "Entertainment system is excellent, food is solid and plentiful."
Cons: "I've flown Turkish a few times before, and they're generally pretty good for the price. This trip was different. Despite Turkish Airlines policies outlined in their "Customer Rights," I received no notification that the flight was delayed 3 hours, and there was no notification at the JoBurg airport until you go to the counter to check in. JoBurg staff - which are Menzies third-party contractors, not Turkish staff - were disorganized, uncommunicative, and unhelpful. Only one person at the check in desk seemed to have authorization to make any changes, so all other agents were running back and forth to speak with him, and not communicating with passengers. It took over an hour to get clarity on the situation and rebook my connecting flight to Washington for a different flight 8 hours later. The only compensation offered was one meal voucher worth R100 (roughly $7). They would not even look at other Star Alliance flights for early arrival in Washington, and said they were not authorized to consider upgrading my ticket. When I called the Turkish customer service, they essentially said "What do you want us to do about it? You have to submit a formal complaint." Boarding was totally disorganized. In theory there are boarding groups, but after business class and all the high-ranking loyalty members, it's pretty much a mad rush. This seems to be the common practice for Turkish now. In general, Turkish has a great entertainment system on all their long-haul flights, with tons of movies - including very new releases - music, games, etc. They also provide complimentary kits with socks, slippers, eye mask, earplugs and dental kit, even for economy passengers. The meals are fairly good for airlines. However, legroom in economy isn't great. I'm 6'1", and had difficulty getting comfortable with my knees jammed into the back of the seat in front of me. On this particular flight, I was in row 18. The cabin crew were frantic, disorganized, and shouting to each other across passengers. One half of our row was served the meal, and the other half had to wait over 30 minutes to be served for some reason. By that time the vegetarian option was no longer available. Crew also had to run back and forth between service carts because they were frequently out of very common beverages (like sparkling water. And ice.), and on two occasions crew left a drawer from a cart full of trash sitting in the aisle. There were several times that crew ran carts into passengers - including once into my knee that was not in the aisle - and didn't even acknowledge doing so. They also stopped the carts in front of occupied lavatories, temporarily trapping passengers. So not terribly professional. While not specifically on this flight, the experience in Istanbul airport with Turkish Airlines' staff was awful. Zero interest in helping, rude and dismissive, and overall terrible."

Cons: "They just fly without waiting us We arrived hour and half before the flight, and they diecied to close the check in, Choce any other flying compeny but them!!!"

Pros: "I left my iPad in the seat back of my previous flight to Istanbul and by the next morning they had my iPad to me and Hungary! Very professional!"

Pros: "Had a wonderful experience in Istanbul for my layover. Turkish airlines took care of accommodations and the hotel was high above my expectations. If you have a layover longer than 10 hours in Istanbul and are flying Turkish airlines, they will take care of your accommodations and wil treat you wonderfully."
Cons: "The seats and space were TINY for an eleven hour flight, and I am a small girl. Nearly impossible to get comfortable. The exceptional service was my reasoning for the good rating. I would fly again but will probably pay for an upgraded seat"

Pros: "Crew were professional."
Cons: "The smaller size planes have less leg room for a coach for shorter flights. The seats I booked initially were changed on me. I don't like that."

Pros: "Overall flight was incredible. Fantastic service!"

Pros: "Cabin crew was quite attentive."
Cons: "Boarding at Istanbul airport took a very long time and was not organized. Meal preference was not recorded properly, so there was a scramble to find me a vegetarian meal. Flight was pretty delayed."

Pros: "Nice entertainment, nice services, very kind service crew"
Cons: "Everything was so good i can't say; i didn't like something"

Pros: "awesome services and food"
Cons: "food services time"

Pros: "food es very good, service also awesome,"
Cons: "very dirty plane."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Seat back entertainment systems were quite good."
Cons: "Seats were a bit cramped. Meal was OK, not great."

Pros: "The crew and food were excellent! Movie choices were plentiful!"
Cons: "Travelling with my 70yr old mother.. Man sitting in front of her would recline and his head was practically in her lap. Neither of our seats reclined so it was upward bound only for almost 11hrs."

Pros: "the croe tretment"
Cons: "changing the gate"

Pros: "Crew ...kosher food! All good."
Cons: "No isle seat...."

Cons: "Staff does not understand regulation"

Cons: "The entertainment did not work good the entire flight"

Cons: "Beef main course overcooked and dry."

Pros: "Planes were comfortable and well maintained."

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"

Pros: "Crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Food was not that good, flight was over an hour late causing us to miss our connection in Frankfurt. Consequently we were also charged for our car pickup in Prague. Overall, not impressed with Lufthansa."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Got rebooked and have changed gates 6 times and flight delayed due to no crew."

Cons: "Boarding by rows would avoid people rushing to line up ahead of time."

Pros: "The food and complementary drinks were perfect. The staff was kind and attentive. There were many movie and television options."
Cons: "The seats reclined too far making me uncomfortable."

Cons: "Los Angeles to Frankfurt on an A380 was great. Flight to Tel Aviv was good. But trying to navigate around Frankfurt was very difficult."

Pros: "The crew was excellent and the seats are v comfortable"
Cons: "I cant really think of anything"

Cons: "Touch screens were not working well. Required multiple hard taps which disturbed the passenger in front."

Pros: "Very good flight and crew."
Cons: "It was a good flight."

Pros: "The crew was incredibly kind and welcoming! And it wasn't a packed flight which made it much more comfortable."
Cons: "No entertainment"

Cons: "Horrible flight"

Pros: "Flight was smooth and arrived early even though it left 30 minutes late."
Cons: "Lufthansa should schedule more time to make connections."

Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "I was allergic to ingredients in the in-flight meal. There were no additional options left by the time food got to me. The crew was indifferent about my allergy and seemed offended when I returned the food uneaten."

Cons: "You have to pay for food unless it is pretzels."

Cons: "Absolutely perfect."

Pros: "Overall. Lufthansa is one of the top airlines in Star Alliance"
Cons: "Seats in economy class. The pouches in from of the seats do not stretch enough. It is difficult to place two books!"

Cons: "New planes are smaller and more cramped"

Pros: "nice crew!"
Cons: "Seat hardly reclines at all."

Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The usual flight discomfort, but the seat in front of me was broke. The person in it struggled to stay out of my lap, which I appreciated. The connecting flight had a non-functional screen and the reading light broke and flew across the cabin."

Cons: "This particular flight was delayed beyond reaching the next sep,so we have to rebook our flight threw Chicago in uncomfortable hurry."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing to mention"

Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"

Cons: "Lufthansa lost 6 of our bags and left us with no information or compensation. I sent them emails but there is no response from customer service. Costed us $500 to buy things on emergency basis for our family and they delivered the bags after 2 days. This was very unprofessional and Lufthansa has to pay for it. Can you please help. Next time we will certainly have to avoid The airline as their gate transfer in Frankfurt is horrible with very rude security staff who has no interest helping our family to board the flight on tight connection. Instead the person decided to go on his break right when we were at the X-ray screening. How rude and unthoughtful."

Pros: "Flight was on time, plane was clean, food was good, entertainment worked (except WiFi, but I didn't need it anyways)"
Cons: "One crew member oversaw me several times when distributing beverages because the gentlemen next to me ordered two, and she assumed he's ordering for me (which he didn't). She explained herself, but didn't apologize but made it sound like it was my fault. When I ordered 2 beverages (wine and water), she said she doesn't have time to hand out two beverages to each passenger."

Pros: "The boarding was fast and effective"
Cons: "The plane arrived late and I had to rush through Munich airport to make the connection. But the luggage arrived with me."

Pros: "Pretty much everything. A joy after the Condor flight"
Cons: "What's not to likr?"

Cons: "Still didn't get to destination. Two hours delayed was enough to make me miss the connection flight which result in a extra 7 hours wait in Munich for a 9 hours total. But they compensate all that with a 10 euros voucher, well worth the trouble."

Cons: "Very long delays"

Pros: "The overall feeling of this flight was 'relaxed'...after getting over the fact, that this was a huge (two story) airplane. Short flight from Denver to Frankfurt...only 8 hours:)"
Cons: "I would have loved to be offered eye shades and ear plus, since most passengers watched movies and i wanted to sleep:)."

Pros: "Nothing!!!!!!"
Cons: "What was there to like?"

Pros: "A380 flies smoothie."
Cons: "Drop Off bagage at MIA airport. I did online check-in..but, the line for DropOFF so long and only ONE person attending..i suggest improve desk services..."

Pros: "Very professional. Excellent service. Very good food (for a flight)."

Pros: "Staff"

Cons: "Seat changes were made after the fact. Seats are very small for such a large plane. I would not fly Lufthansa again."

Cons: "terrible flight bad food, the options were finished by the time they reached line 30. the entertainment had 3 old movies in English. wishing the flight will finish because it was very jumpy, after all this it ended in an emergency landing. Lufthansa was very disappointing."

Pros: "I liked how generous they were with food and drinks"
Cons: "Free WiFi could have made the flight a lot better"

Cons: "KLM lost my suitcase and did not deliver it until three days later... They refused to compensate me for having delivered the bag with broken articles inside (A pair of Rayban Wayfarers!)"

Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"

Cons: "Bigger seats the new ones are way to narrow"

Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."

Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"

Pros: "Professional crew. Good simple check in."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "The earphones could have worked!"

Cons: "The check in desk was late opening & the carry on luggage size was smaller than advertised on their website, so it had to be put in the hold. Open on time to prevent less stress to travelers & give more accurate information about cabin luggage."

Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"
Cons: "As we landed we had to wait on the plane for an hour and a half because another plane (Spirit) was in our “parking spot.” This made it very difficult for people and connecting flights."

Cons: "Very slow service at checkin, was not even available when I arrived at the airport"

Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."

Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."

Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."

Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"

Pros: "staff hospitality, cleanness of the cabin and toilet and punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "lack of meal options"

Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
